George Noory, host of the nationally syndicated program, Coast to Coast AM, says if he weren’t a national radio talk show host he’d be in politics. Heard by millions of listeners, Coast To Coast AM airs on approximately 500 stations in the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Guam.
While hosting The Nighthawk, a wildly successful, late-night program on KTRS in St. Louis, Noory was recruited by Premiere Radio Networks to guest host on Coast to Coast AM with Art Bell. He became the permanent host of the phenomenally successful over-night program on January 1, 2003, following Bell’s retirement. Since then, Noory’s audience has continued to grow.
Noory captivates program listeners with his discussions of paranormal phenomena, time travel, alien abductions, conspiracies and all things curious and unexplained. He is driven, he has said, by the desire to solve the great mysteries of our time. From his first days as a radio broadcaster he says, “I’ve wanted to cover stories that the mainstream media never touch—the unusual, the paranormal and things like that. I learned that broadcast was the best business for exploring these issues, and I’ve been doing it for 33 years.”
He dates his interest in these matters to a book by Walter Sullivan, We Are Not Alone, that his mother gave him when he was 13. He was hooked.
Futurist Paul Guercio and physicist George Hart of the Merlin Project discussed their software-based forecasting technology and the graphical snapshots of time, called Timetraks, it generates. Their charts won't tell you whether something is good or bad off hand, but you can triangulate several related dates for further interpretation. For instance, for Apple Computer, you can run the birth dates of Steve Jobs, the corporation, and important product release dates, "and if they all have timetraks going crazy with high activity at a given moment that tells you that's a moment in time to really pay attention to," Hart explained. "The timetraks for the United States indicated that this year and continuing for several years would be periods of extreme chaos and tension," he noted.
Looking at possible candidates for the 2016 US presidential election, Guercio doesn't see Hillary Clinton running, or landing in the primary if she does run. He predicts that it will be NJ Governor Christie vs. NY Governor Cuomo, with Rand Paul running as a third-party candidate (see charts below). Jeb Bush's timetrak during this time frame isn't going anywhere, he added. Guercio also cited the year 2021 as a time we might see a nuclear event, based on charts of when previous nuclear activity first occurred.
They also talked about their TimeTraks app available for Apple and Android smartphones and tablets. Offered at 99 cents for a one-week trial, the app allows people to enter specific dates and view a graphical interface that shows how the peaks and valleys play out over a given time frame. It also includes many timetraks of celebrities and world events.
First hour guest, privacy advocate Katherine Albrecht reported on a supermarket's plan to track shoppers with "smart shelves" that are integrated with Microsoft Kinect technology which can detect their age, gender, and physical traits. Based on the shopper's specific demographic, the store might beam out an ad or message tailored to that person, she explained. The end game for this, she believes, is that stores want to charge different prices for different people, and customers will have to aim their cell phone at a product to get their specific price. She lamented that some stores are on their way to becoming diabolical "retail zoos" where customers are the exhibits.
