A group of experts discussed earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and climate change, and shared their predictions as to what we might expect in 2008 and beyond. First,geologist Jim Berkland and author/earthquake 'sensitive' Cal Orey spoke about quakes and weather cycles. Berkland noted that there's a relationship between earthquakes and heavy rain/snow, which can cause loading to the crust. Offering their predictions, Orey suggested that there'd be flooding in the Tahoe area, a possible quake in Alaska affecting the West Coast, and around a 6.0 quake in or offshore Northern California within a year. Berkland finds it more likely that a 6.0 will hit Southern California this year, with a seismic window particularly strong in the new moon periods of May, June and July.As a sensitive, Orey said she sometimes hears "ear tones" before a quake; Berkland stated that some sensitives get headaches before earthquakes. In the third hour, volcanologist R.B. Trombley and au ... More »Host: George Noory

Inspired by the recent liberation of "the cricket," George opened a special hotline devoted to people with strange insect stories. A caller from Texas described seeing a tarantula on her bathroom floor. She initially thought the spider was one of her cat's rubber toys... until it began moving.Another caller said he and his wife purchased a home and designated one of the bedrooms for their deceased daughter. According to him, hundreds of ladybugs would gather in the daughter's room and, even after removing them, they returned two days later.Emily from Pensacola recounted the time she had a premonition involving a cockroach while watching TV with a friend. As soon as the vision ended, a roach crawled out from underneath the couch and walked across the living room floor. Emily believes she had a brief psychic connection with the bug. ...

EV Worlds publisher and editor, Bill Moore, shared his views on alternative sustainable transportation and our current dependence on foreign oil. He cited a recent report by the Rocky Mountain Institute (free PDF book), that feared that the US military was turning into a "global oil protection service." Interestingly, he noted that the report was actually commissioned by the Pentagon. 10,000 gallons of gasoline are used every second in the U.S., "so you can see the magnitude of the problem," said Moore. There are a variety of alternatives, "some evolutionary, some revolutionary," he continued. One type of automobile technology he recommended was that of "plug-in hybrids" which can run on both electricity and liquid fuel such as ethanol. Studies have shown that the typical amount of driving done in one day is about 24 miles, which an electric car can handle without recharging. For longer trips, the vehicle's engine that runs on liquid fuel can be used, he noted. Moore also discu ... More »Host: George Noory
An expert in spiritualism and hypnosis, Adrienne Feliceshared her research into the spirit world. "The physical world is a prototype of the spirit world," which existed before the physical realm, she detailed. "It is where we come from," and contains an astral world followed by six more levels going to closer to God, she said. She believes we are here in the earthly plane in order to learn lessons which we absorb through our emotions. In the spirit world, she noted that thoughts are instantly manifested into realities. This realm operates perfectly according to "Natural Law," in which for instance a person who goes swimming in a body of water, will be instantly dry when they step out, she explained.The spirit world is a "beautiful place," she continued, in which things don't age or die. Flowers are always in bloom and can be experienced as music, while music is experienced as color and form in addition to sound. Once someone dies they will immediately find themselves in the ast ...

During Friday night's Open Lines, George prescribed a "Medical Misfits" hotline for people with stories about healthcare gone bad. One caller recounted his painful experience during a root canal procedure. According to him, an inexperienced dentist accidentally got a drill stuck in his tooth and was unable to remove it -- the drill still resides in his mouth to this day.Another caller said his father was hospitalized for a routine hernia surgery, and ended up being poisoned when talcum powder from the surgeon's gloves was left inside his body. The infection caused a gaping hole in the shape of a football to open up in his father's torso, requiring three months to heal.Dave from Lincoln, Nebraska described the time his wife was giving birth. He said the doctors preformed a C-section and left gauze behind his wife's uterus, causing her to swell. Thankfully, the doctors recognized their mistake and were able to remove the gauze before it caused a serious infection. ... More »Host: George Noory
