UFO researchers Noe Torres (Hour 2) and Ruben Uriarte (Hours 3 & 4) discussed several strange UFO incidents that have happened along the US-Mexico border, including a mid-air collision between a plane and a UFO in August of 1974. Torres told of how he became interested in UFOs at an early age, after his mother shared a strange, disturbing incident in the 1940s when she witnessed an unidentified craft, and its menacing beams of light. Regarding the 1974 incident, which has been nicknamed "Mexico's Roswell," it took place in Coyame, Mexico, near the border town of Presidio, Texas, when a small plane crashed into a disc-shaped UFO. Afterward, both US and Mexican troops reportedly sifted through the wreckage, said Torres.
Torres and Uriarte traveled to the Coyame area to interview witnesses, and learned further details of the case. The small plane was completely obliterated, and the Mexican soldiers who initially went through the debris did not wear protective gear, and were later seen lying down on the ground, Uriarte detailed. Later, when a US team flew in from Fort Bliss, they wore protective suits, which suggested there might have been biological agents or radiation, he continued. Then, the crashed disc (said to be only 16 ft. in diameter) was allegedly taken to Atlanta, said Uriarte, which might have related to the fact that the CDC was there.
Uriarte also touched on the Del Rio, Texas incident where Col. Robert Willingham said he saw three non-human entities at a crash site in 1955, and a UFO crash in Laredo, Texas in 1948. According to the PEA Research paper, which covered incidents from 1947 to 1978, there were 40 UFO crashes that occurred worldwide, with 24 of them taking place in the American Southwest, and an astounding 131 alien bodies retrieved, Uriarte recounted. From 1950-1957 there were around 17 crashes, and an FBI document he ran across speculated that a high powered radar station active at that time may have caused the many UFO crashes.
Writers for the Wall Street Journal, Paul Vigna and Michael J. Casey, appeared during the first hour, to talk about how cybermoney is poised to launch a revolution-- one that could reinvent traditional financial and social structures while bringing the world's billions of 'unbanked' individuals into a new global economy. Since the dawn of the Internet, people have been trying to come up with a digital currency, but it wasn't until the mysterious founder of Bitcoin, Satoshi Nakamoto, came up with a breakthrough which prevented counterfeiting, that cryptocurrency really came into its own, the two explained. One of the big differences of Bitcoin, and other digital currencies, is that in contrast to banks, they are decentralized and allow for direct, peer-to-peer transactions.
