In the first half, President and CEO of the International Combat Martial Arts Federation, Bradley Steiner, addressed the problem of violence and personal assaults in the U.S. and what the average person needs to know about technical/tactical readiness. There has been an uptick in viciousness and cruelty when it comes to attacks, he cited, such as a recent case where a man was stabbed to death for flashing a middle finger at people involved in a Bronx car crash. Steiner believes such incidents are on the rise because there's been a decrease in personal responsibility and morality.
People should be cognizant of the fact that we live in a dangerous world, he said, and it's best to be prepared "so that you don't become astonished and paralyzed should something happen." You are less likely to be a target of criminals by practicing situational awareness, and not appearing distracted as you walk to your destination, he advised. An advocate of concealed carry, Steiner stated that you shouldn't point a firearm at someone unless you're prepared to actually use it.
In the latter half, UFO and paranormal expert Paul Stonehill discussed ongoing strange encounters and discoveries in Russia, as well as previous Soviet incidents. Recently, on the volcanic island of Matua in the Sea of Okhotsk, the Russian army found a sunken submarine that may be either American or Japanese, he reported. The nearby area has seen a lot of UFO and USO (unidentified submerged object) activity-- more in this video from his YouTube channel.
Up by the Arctic ocean, there was a gigantic wave of UFOs in 1979, as well as activity in the 1980s, he continued. Soviet ufology was quite active over the years, but sometimes the government curtailed ufologists, as the military didn't want attention drawn to their own secret craft, he explained. He also talked about the 'Golden Woman' entity, a powerful being said to live in a mountain near where a group of hikers inexplicably died in the 1959 Dyatlov Pass incident, Russian investigations into the Antarctic and Lake Vostok, as well as the mysterious Mariana Trench (the deepest part of the Pacific Ocean).
