FIRST ALERT 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.

"Increasing rain chances"

It certainly was a hot one yesterday as our afternoon high climbed to 88° in Fort Myers. This broke our record high of 87° at Page Field, which was set back in 1997. Over the next few days, temperatures won't be quite as warm as rain prospects increase. We'll finally track some cooler air set to arrive early next week with the passage of a cold front.

A mix of clouds and some sun will take us into the late morning hours as temperatures begin their climb into the middle to upper 70s. Daytime highs will max out in the lower half of the 80s today with increasing clouds during the afternoon. As a front works its way across central Florida and stalls, a few showers will be possible through the afternoon, especially along and east of I-75 as steering winds remain from the south/southwest.

Tonight, expect mostly cloudy skies and temperatures in the middle 60s. Rain chances will continue to run near 30% with a few widely scattered showers during the evening and overnight period.

Clouds will stick around through Thursday and Friday along with a slight rain chance, before more sunshine breaks out for the first half of the weekend. Temperatures will run several degrees above average for this time of year as highs return to the 80s for Saturday. A stronger cold front will approach the area late Saturday and into early Sunday bringing scattered showers to Southwest Florida. In the wake of this front, a cooler airmass will move in with highs in the middle 70s along with lower humidity. Return to index of stories...


NAVY CHEATING SCANDAL-trxVOTOPS OC


NEW TODAY - WE'VE LEARNED THE MILITARY IS INVESTIGATING ANOTHER CHEATING SCANDAL AT A NU-CLEAR FACILITY.

EARLIER THIS MONTH, DOZENS OF OFFICERS WERE ACCUSED AT MALM-STROM AIR FORCE BASE IN MONTANA.

NOW, THE NAVY IS DEALING WITH A SIMILAR SITUATION IN SOUTH CAROLINA.

NBC'S TRACIE POTTS HAS THE LATEST FROM WASHINGTON. Return to index of stories...


NAVY CHEATING SCANDAL-PKG


--- INSERT PKG ---

THE NAVY HAS DECERTIFIED 30 INSTRUCTORS AT ITS NUCLEAR TRAINING UNIT IN CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA.

THEY'RE ACCUSED OF SHARING INFORMATION - CHEATING - ON AN EXAM QUALIFYING THEM TO TEACH NEW RECRUITS HOW TO OPERATE NUCLEAR REACTORS.

"We conservatively estimate that this is probably less than one percent of the navy nuclear propulsion force."

BUT IT'S 20 PERCENT OF THE INSTRUCTORS IN CHARLESTON.

THE SCHOOL TRAINS SAILORS HOW TO WORK ON A NUCLEAR-POWERED SUBMARINE OR AIRCRAFT CARRIER.

THESE INSTRUCTORS HAD DONE THAT. PASSED THEIR OWN TRAINING AS STUDENTS. AND CAME BACK TO TEACH.

THE NAVY SAYS ONE OF THEM BLEW THE WHISTLE.

"He recognized when he was asked to join in that that's not consistent with those values and mentioned it to the command."

THIS LATEST SCANDAL COMES JUST DAYS AFTER THE PENTAGON ANNOUNCED THE NUMBER OF AIR FORCE OFFICERS IN A SEPARATE CHEATING SCANDAL IN MONTANA HAD NEARLY TRIPLED.

THAT CASE DID INVOLVE SAFELY STORING NUCLEAR WEAPONS.

"I guess I believe now that we do have systemic problems within the force."

THE SOUTH CAROLINA CASE IS STILL UNDER INVESTIGATION.

audio outcue: Tracie Potts, NBC News, WASHINGTON.

AND THERE'S A THIRD INVESTIGATION INTO FRAUD BY NATIONAL GUARD RECRUITERS WHO TOOK BONUSES MEANT FOR RANK-AND-FILE SOLDIERS WHO GOT OTHERS TO SIGN UP. THE TOTAL AMOUNT POCKETED: AT LEAST $29 MILLION DOLLARS.

TARGET HEARING CONTINUES-PKG


REPORTER PKG-AS FOLLOWS--

THIS MORNING WE KNOW MORE THAN EVER BEFORE ABOUT THE SCRAMBLE AND RACE AGAINST TIME TO STOP THE MASSIVE THEFT OF INFORMATION THAT AFFECTED NEARLY A THIRD OF US ADULTS.

TARGET CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER JOHN MULLIGAN, CONTRITE:

"I want to say how deeply sorry we are for the impact this incident has had on our guests, your constituents."

IT BEGAN THE EVENING OF DECEMBER 12TH, WHEN THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT NOTIFIED TARGET OF "SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITY INVOLVING PAYMENT CARDS" USED AT TARGET STORES.

Leahy: Had you had any knowledge that malware was there before the Department of Justice gave you that notification?

Mulligan: Mr. Chairman despite the significant investment in multiple layers of detection that we had within our system, we did not.

DECEMBER 14TH -- TARGET HIRES AN INDEPENDENT TEAM OF EXPERTS TO LEAD THE INTERNAL FORENSIC INVESTIGATION.

ONE DAY LATER, THAT TEAM CONFIRMS "CRIMINALS HAD INFILTRATED THE SYSTEM" BY INSTALLING MALWARE ON TARGET'S REGISTERS.

THE MALWARE IS REMOVED.

ON THE 19TH, A WEEK AFTER THE TIP FROM JUSTICE-- TARGET GOES PUBLIC WITH THE BREACH--

ONE FACT NOW CONFIRMED- BUT WITH NO DATE REFERENCE-. AN INTRUDER STOLE A VENDOR'S CREDENTIALS TO GET INTO THE SYSTEM AND INSTALL THE MALWARE IN THE FIRST PLACE.

THE QUESTION NOW: HOW TO PREVENT THIS?

solutions that came out of the hearing -- A CHIP, A PIN AND A NEW RULE:

FIRST A SMART CHIP ON PAYMENT CARDS THAT KEEPS PERSONAL INFORMATION SAFER THAN ON A MAGNETIC STRIPE. TARGET PLANS TO HAVE CHIP TECHNOLOGY IN PLACE NEXT YEAR.

"It's more encryption, so the credit card information would stay encrypted longer and would make it much more difficult for the hackers to be able to obtain that information."

ALSO DISCUSSED: PERSONAL IDENTIFICATION NUMBERS -- OR PINS, TO GO ALONG WITH SMART CHIP CARDS.

AND IF ALL ELSE FAILS: NEW RULES: BETTER NOTIFICATION STANDARDS SO YOU'LL KNOW MUCH FASTER WHEN YOUR CARD IS COMPROMISED. Return to index of stories...

WEATHER-CLIP

WEATHER-WX WALL


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.

"Increasing rain chances"

It certainly was a hot one yesterday as our afternoon high climbed to 88° in Fort Myers. This broke our record high of 87° at Page Field, which was set back in 1997. Over the next few days, temperatures won't be quite as warm as rain prospects increase. We'll finally track some cooler air set to arrive early next week with the passage of a cold front.

A mix of clouds and some sun will take us into the late morning hours as temperatures begin their climb into the middle to upper 70s. Daytime highs will max out in the lower half of the 80s today with increasing clouds during the afternoon. As a front works its way across central Florida and stalls, a few showers will be possible through the afternoon, especially along and east of I-75 as steering winds remain from the south/southwest.

Tonight, expect mostly cloudy skies and temperatures in the middle 60s. Rain chances will continue to run near 30% with a few widely scattered showers during the evening and overnight period.

Clouds will stick around through Thursday and Friday along with a slight rain chance, before more sunshine breaks out for the first half of the weekend. Temperatures will run several degrees above average for this time of year as highs return to the 80s for Saturday. A stronger cold front will approach the area late Saturday and into early Sunday bringing scattered showers to Southwest Florida. In the wake of this front, a cooler airmass will move in with highs in the middle 70s along with lower humidity. Return to index of stories...

THIS MORNING, A DRUG STORE GIANT REVEALING ITS PLAN TO EXTINGUISH THE SALE

OF CIGARETTES LEAVING BILLIONS OF DOLLARS UP IN SMOKE!

THE CVS PHARMACY JUST ANNOUNCED THAT BY THE END OF THE YEAR, NONE OF ITS 7,

600 LOCATIONS WILL CARRY TOBACCO PRODUCTS, CALLING THEM "INCONSISTENT WITH

OUR PURPOSE"

SOT - HELENA FOULKES/PRESIDENT, CVS PHARMACY

17:12:44

/what kind of company do we want to be, do we really want to be a

healthcare company? it was the right decision for us.

THE MOVE COMES AS LOCAL AND STATE GOVERNMENTS ARE JOINING WITH ANTI-SMOKING

GROUPS TO PASS LAWS BANNING ALL PHARMACIES FROM SELLING THE PRODUCTS--A

KNOWN HEALTH HAZARD--SO CLOSE TO WHERE MANY AMERICANS BUY THEIR MEDICATIONS

AND SEEK MEDICAL ADVICE.

SOT -Matthew Herper, Senior Editor, Forbes

22:12:37

"Increasingly as they brand themselves as a health company, public health

has to matter to them. There's no way to prevent death and disease in this

country than cutting down on smoking

WHILE GIVING UP SMOKING MAY ALSO MEAN GIVING UP 2 BILLION DOLLARS IN SALES,

C-V-S SAYS AS OBAMACARE AND THE HEALTHCARE INDUSTRY ARE RAPIDLY EVOLVING.

HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN NEW BUSINESS ARE UP FOR GRABS.

SOT - HELENA FOULKES/PRESIDENT, CVS PHARMACY

HEALTH MATTERS(lymph nodes)-ON CAM


LESS MAY BE MORE IN THE TREATMENT OF BREAST CANCER.

SCIENTISTS NOW SAY REMOVING FEWER LYMPH NODES IN SURGERY FOR BREAST CANCER PATIENTS CAUSES LESS HARM AND OFTEN DEMONSTRATES EQUALLY GOOD RESULTS.

AMY OSHIER REPORTS IN HEALTH MATTERS. Return to index of stories...


HEALTH MATTERS(lymph nodes)-PKG


PKG:

IT FREQUENTLY FELL INTO THE CATEGORY OF UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES.

IN AN EFFORT TO AGGRESSIVELY COMBAT BREAST CANCER, WOMEN WERE

LOSING LYMPH NODES. THAT OFTEN RESULTED IN A LOSS OF QUALITY OF

LIFE. SURGEONS ARE NOW RETHINKING THE PRACTICE.

RIE AIHARA/SURGICAL ONCOLOGIST

RUNS:

10:54 I think we're getting more and more away from lymph nodes- which really creates

a lot of side effects, a lot of complications with lymphedema.

IT WAS NOT UNCOMMON FOR WOMEN TO FIND THEMSELVES BATTLING

LYMPHEDEMA- A LIFE-LONG SWELLING THAT OCCURS WHEN FEWER LYMPH

NODES ARE AVAILABLE TO DISTRIBUTE LYMPHATIC FLUID. MANY ALSO

REQUIRED POST-OP THERAPIES TO ALLEVIATE SEVERE PAIN AND REDUCED

RANGE OF MOTION.

PAT CURR/PHYSICAL THERAPIST

RUNS:

:09 There's a lot of scaring involved and limited range of motion in usually the shoulder and

sometimes the neck and thoracic region. A lot of times they cannot reach into cabinets or do

their hair. Sometimes they actually need someone to help them with showering.

AMY OSHIER/REPORTING

RUNS:

Comprehensive studies were done to find out if lymph node removal was necessary to treat

invasive breast cancer. The conclusion was 'no' Years ago surgeons removed 20 to 30 lymph

nodes from armpit- now it's believed that less is more.

RIE AIHARA/SURGICAL ONCOLOGIST

RUNS:

13:01 We used to, if there were cancer cells regardless of how big the deposits were,

we used to remove all the lymph nodes. 13:25: But with this new data- a group of

women who had these lymph nodes that were positive who went on to axillary node

dissection vs. those that didn't and the conclusion was there really were no difference. It

just added risk.

IT'S A CONSERVATIVE APPROACH TO BREAST CANCER- THAT'S LEAVING

WOMEN CANCER-FREE AND CLEAR OF A MAJOR COMPLICATION. FOR LEE
