In the first half, business consultant and financial writer George Ure discussed his analysis of the economy, and trends unfolding in 2016. In his study of cyclical economics, he's concluded that we're in the process of replaying the years of about 1921 to 1929. In the near future, he's optimistic that we'll see record highs in the stock market, with the Dow rising to a possible 30,000-- mirroring the rise of the markets in the year and a half leading up to the crash of 1929. He predicts that around September/October of 2017, stock prices will come tumbling down, leading into a new depression.
While still bullish on gold and silver, Ure thinks that Bitcoin or one of the other cryptocurrencies will emerge over time and become a genuine alternative to the dollar. The physical migration of people from poor or war torn countries into western nations can actually act as an economic boom-- these people need houses, cars, and more social services, and government, he remarked. We're also seeing a strong migration trend in the work force- out of the industrial reality into a virtual one, in which people spend 8-10 hours in front of a computer screen, he cited.
In the latter half, psychic Gale St. John spoke about her work with police departments around the country as a psychic detective working on murder and missing person cases. Her psychic gifts began a young child, when she had a vision of a neighbor's house on fire, which came to pass. At age 17, she began to have visions of a missing boy that had lived in her house-- and when his body was found, it was in the location exactly as she had described it.
Her tracking process begins with focusing on the missing body. She travels to the location where the person was last seen, as there is often a vibration left (St. John also makes use of K9 police dogs in her searches). In murder cases, she also gets impressions of the killer-- with details such as their name, the color of their car, etc. that come to her. In one startling case, a man emailed her about finding his missing wife, and she recognized that he was the murderer. Nonetheless, St. John traveled by car with him to conduct a search, and she located the wife's cell phone in the grass, and her body was eventually found. Though police and law enforcement often treat her skeptically or suspiciously, she continues to work on up to 300 cases a year.
