FORECAST-WXWALL


THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

Another round of fog is possible again this evening. As temperatures cool before midnight we could see some areas in southwest Florida with reduced visibility for a time. This fog forecast for tonight is not quite the same as last night, because a cold front is moving down the peninsula and should help to break up the fog a little sooner. The front will arrive tomorrow and linger through Thursday. Our weather will likely be very different on Wednesday and Thursday versus what we saw today. Cloudy skies are expected, temperatures will be lower, wind picks up a little, and. some rain showers are possible. The best chance for showers to develop will be late in the day on Wednesday. There will likely be on / off showers on Thursday. Temperatures for the next 2 days will cool into the 60's during the day and into the low 50's at night.

But take heart. the long-range forecast looks just fine for the weekend! Sunshine will start to return on Friday and by Saturday/Sunday we will be back in the 80's with mostly sunny weather. Return to index of stories...

MICHAEL SCULLY IS THE LEAD DESIGNER OF TEAM USA'S NEW 2-MAN BOBSLED. HIS GOAL-- TO HELP THE U.S. WIN GOLD IN THE 2-MAN EVENT.

USING A SLEEK, INNOVATIVE DESIGN AND CUTTING EDGE TECHNOLOGY, THIS NEW SLED REDUCES DRAG, THE FORCE THAT RESISTS THE SLED'S MOVEMENT DOWN THE TRACK, OPTIMIZING AERODYNAMICS TO CREATE THE NEXT STEP IN BOBSLED ENGINEERING.

RULES REQUIRES THAT A 2-MAN BOBSLED WEIGH NO LESS THAN 374 POUNDS WHEN EMPTY AND 860 POUNDS WITH CREW AND EQUIPMENT.

TO MAKE A FASTER SLED, BUT STAY WITHIN THE WEIGHT RESTRICTIONS, SCULLY UTILIZED HIS PRIOR EXPERIENCE AS A RACE CAR DESIGNER, INCORPORATING LIGHTWEIGHT MATERIALS SUCH AS CARBON FIBER AND KEVLAR, AND FASHIONING THEM INTO A SLEEKER AND MORE AERODYNAMIC SLED.

RICHARD BARNHART/HAS HYPERTENSION

RUNS:

:30 Doctor told me - checked my blood pressure told me I have hypertension.

THAT'S USUALLY THE WAY IT GOES WITH HYPERTENSION.

DR. GARY GOFORTH/FAMILY PRACTICE

RUNS:

:38 Hypertension is often known as the 'silent killer' because most patients have no symptoms at all.

DISCOVERED THROUGH REGULAR MEDICAL CHECKUPS, FAMILY DOCTORS ARE OFTEN THE FRONT LINE IN COMBATTING THE CONDITION.

DR. GARY GOFORTH/FAMILY PRACTICE

RUNS:

:12 Primary care physicians are typically the ones that would diagnose and treat most cases of hypertension. Only in the unusual cases where you have very severe hypertension, would they go to cardiologist.

AMY OSHIER/REPORTING

RUNS:

Blood pressure refers to the force that blood pushes against the walls of arteries as the heart pumps. The two-number reading reflects when your heart is contracting and then between beats. A high blood pressure reading, is a sign your heart is working too hard.

DR. GARY GOFORTH/FAMILY PRACTICE

RUNS:

1:54 It's normal for blood pressure to go up when you're stressed or you're exercising. But when it's persistently elevated, it puts you at risk of having heart attack, strokes and other cardiovascular events.

IT'S ESTIMATED ABOUT HALF THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE HYPERTENSION, DON'T KNOW IT. IDENTIFYING IT, HELPS YOUR DOCTOR, HELP YOU.

DR. GARY GOFORTH/FAMILY PRACTICE

RUNS:

1:24 We'd like to do lifestyle changes. So asking patients to lose weight, reduce salt in their diet, reduce alcohol intake. All things that are very effective in lowering blood pressure.

AND ALL WORKING FOR RICHARD- HE'S SUCCESSFULLY BATTLED HYPERTENSION FOR 40 YEARS.

FORECAST-WXWALL


THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

Another round of fog is possible again this evening. As temperatures cool before midnight we could see some areas in southwest Florida with reduced visibility for a time. This fog forecast for tonight is not quite the same as last night, because a cold front is moving down the peninsula and should help to break up the fog a little sooner. The front will arrive tomorrow and linger through Thursday. Our weather will likely be very different on Wednesday and Thursday versus what we saw today. Cloudy skies are expected, temperatures will be lower, wind picks up a little, and. some rain showers are possible. The best chance for showers to develop will be late in the day on Wednesday. There will likely be on / off showers on Thursday. Temperatures for the next 2 days will cool into the 60's during the day and into the low 50's at night.

But take heart. the long-range forecast looks just fine for the weekend! Sunshine will start to return on Friday and by Saturday/Sunday we will be back in the 80's with mostly sunny weather. Return to index of stories...

NSA ANGRY BIRDS-PKG

ANGRY BIRDS -- ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR GAME APPLICATIONS, HAS BEEN DOWNLOADED MORE THAN ONE BILLION TIMES.

BUT THE NEXT TIME YOU OPEN IT UP, COULD THE NSA BE TRACKING YOU?

ACCORDING TO THE NEW YORK TIMES, THE NSA IS TRYING TO COLLECT AND STORE USER DATA FROM APPS.

THE TIMES SAYS THE CLASSIFIED PROGRAM FOCUSES ON "SO-CALLED LEAKY APPS THAT SPEW EVERYTHING FROM USERS' SMARTPHONE IDENTIFICATION CODES TO WHERE THEY HAVE BEEN THAT DAY."

"If you want to track what people do on the internet you have to move to apps, I think that's what is driving the NSA to track apps."

IN RESPONSE TO THETIMES STORY, THE NSA ISSUED A STATEMENT, SAYING IN PART, "ANY IMPLICATION THAT THE NSA'S FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE COLLECTION IS FOCUSED ON THE SMARTPHONE OR SOCIAL MEDIA COMMUNICATIONS OF EVERYDAY AMERICANS IS NOT TRUE."

AT THE WHITE HOUSE, MORE PUSHBACK.

"We are not interested in the communications of people who are not valid foreign intelligence targets."

THE REPORT IS BASED ON DOCUMENTS SAID TO BE LEAKED BY EDWARD SNOWDEN. IN ONE DOCUMENT -- WHICH COULD NOT BE VERIFIED BY CNN -- THE EFFORT IS DESCRIBED AS A GOLDEN NUGGET. INFORMATION THAT COULD BE COLLECTED INCLUDES: LOCATION OF USERS, NETWORKS TO WHICH THEY CONNECT, WEBSITES VISITED; BUDDY LISTS AND DOWNLOADED DOCUMENTS.

"This would need really tight controls to make sure they weren't taking advantage of it."
