SPORTS INJURIES-PKG


SCRIPT:

HITS TO THE HEAD EVERY SEASON ACCORDING TO A RECENT STUDY. AND ON THURSDAY

THE NFL CONFESSED TO CONGRESS, IT STILL HAS NOT DEVELOPED EQUIPMENT TO

DANGER.

CAN NO LONGER PLAY. SUFFERING THIS HEAD INJURY AT AGE 38.

AVILA 04;34;39;58

WHAT WAS THE EFFECT OF THAT ON YOUR LIFE?/

/

BRIANNA

I still have issues with my balance, loss of memory, concentration,

difficulty focusing, sensitivity to light and sound.

AND THATS WHAT SHE CAME TO CONGRESS TO TALK ABOUT. DELIVERING THIS MESSAGE

. FOR PARENTS AND COACHES.

AVILA

PLAYING HURT IS NOT GOOD ANYMORE.

BRIANNA

No we're finding out that playing hurt can not only cost you that game but

can cost you the next few years if not longer of your life quality.

NEUROLOGISTS SAY THE LEADING CAUSE OF CONCUSSIONS IS IMPROPER TECHNIQUE

WHILE HEADING THE BALL. AND KIDS SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO USE THEIR HEAD

UNTIL THEY ARE CERTIFIED TO DO IT WELL.

LIKE THIS.

DEMO -- Dr. Chrutchfield

Through the ball, so you can see the ball coming off faster than it's

hitting me.

This is what the kids do the wrong way, they'll stand there they'll close

their eyes and it hits them and their head snaps.

-- SOT BITE 0636 dr. chrichfield

"most kids don't know how to head the ball properly at a young age. They

really need to be taught how to do it well" Return to index of stories...

BEER RIPOFF-PKG


-REPORTER PKG-AS FOLLOWS--

IT WAS THIS YOU TUBE VIDEO THAT PUT THE PUCK IN MOTION, SO TO SPEAK.MADE BY BOISEANS GWEN GIBBS AND HEATH FORSEY.

AT A STEELHEADS GAME IN CENTURY LINK ARENA.THEY COMPARED THE AMOUNT IN THE REGULAR FOUR DOLLAR BEER TO THE LARGE SEVEN DOLLAR BEER.

"It's the same beer. You just get a taller cup."

THEY REPEATED THEIR DISCOVERY THE NEXT DAY, AND GOT THE SAME RESULTS.

"There you go. seven dollars, four dollars. Same amount."

"C'mon Century Link. That's a total rip off."

SOCIAL MEDIA WENT WILD WITH AGREEMENT.AND CENTURY LINK RESPONDED.

"Is this a rip off? No, certainly not intended to be a rip off. We ordered 16 ounce cups and 20 ounce cups, unfortunately, the volume of the 20 ounce fits into the 16 ounce. We didn't know that."

"We are raising the large up to 24 ounce at the same price as a large."

GWEN GIBBS AND HEATH FORSEY ARE GOOD WITH THAT.

"Are you satisfied with how this has been resolved? I am, I just wanted a change and to make them realize they're kind of ripping people off. I'm really happy with the change and how fast they put it in place."

"They fixed it. I'm not out to cause any problems or anything. Kinda funny."

BOTH ARE A LITTLE SURPRISED WITH ALL THE ATTENTION THEIR VIDEO IS GETTING.SEEMS IN THIS INTERNET AGE.IT'S BOTH BUYER.AND SELLER.BEWARE. Return to index of stories...

HEALTH MATTERS-ON CAM


AS IMPORTANT AS IT IS FOR ADULTS TO GET A GOOD NIGHT'S SLEEP - KIDS ALSO NEED GOOD REST.

BUT IT'S COMMON FOR YOUNGER KIDS TO HAVE NIGHTMARES - MAKING FOR A RESTLESS NIGHT.

IN TODAYS HEALTH MATTERS AMY OSHIER HAS ADVICE IN GETTING LITTLE ONES BACK TO BED. Return to index of stories...


HEALTH MATTERS-PKG


PKG:

AT 3-YEARS OLD LITTLE GRACE JACOBS JUST ENTERED PRIME-TIME FOR

NIGHTMARES. DOCTORS FIND THEM MOST COMMON IN PRESCHOOLERS, UP

TO ABOUT AGE SIX.

LISA JACOBS/MOM

RUNS:

:17 It's funny you mentioned it we just went through one last night. We woke up

screaming terribly last night.

AT THIS STAGE OF DEVELOPMENT, CHILDREN ARE BECOMING AWARE OF

NORMAL FEARS AND THEIR IMAGINATIONS ARE MORE ACTIVE.

DR. DENISE DRAGO/PEDIATRICIAN

RUNS:

:15 It's a pretty common childhood disorder and there are things you can to help make

them less frequent.

BEING TOO TIRED, NOT GETTING ENOUGH SLEEP, HAVING UNPREDICTABLE

ROUTINES AND STRESS OR ANXIETY MAY ALL INCREASE THE RISK OF HAVING

NIGHTMARES. BAD DREAMS CAN STEM FROM INSECURITY.

DR. DENISE DRAGO/PEDIATRICIAN

RUNS:

4:09 Having a good sleep routine and making sure your child is getting enough sleep is

going to be the thing that helps prevent that. Staying up later, not eating as well, those

things are all more likely to sort of bring about sleep disruptions, including nightmares.

AMY OSHIER/REPORTING

RUNS:

When children wake up from a bad dream, they are usually looking for comfort. Most

times that means mom and dad. Which brings about a late night dilemma- do you invite

them into your bed to make them feel safe?

DR. DENISE DRAGO/PEDIATRICIAN

RUNS:

1:38 What you don't want to do- which is what happens when you're very tired, when

your kid wakes you up in the middle of the night- is bring them in your bed, because that

gets them to go to sleep faster.

1:57: If you work really on saying 'you're safe, things are safe' in their own room you'll

re-enforce that they're OK where they are.

LITTLE GRACE GOT THE DOSE OF REASSURANCE SHE NEEDED- WITHOUT

SPENDING THE NIGHT WITH HER PARENTS.

LISA JACOBS/MOM

RUNS:

1:06: We're lucky enough we have a little couch we laid on last night and we hugged it

out until she stopped crying then we got her back into her bed.

SOME PARENTS FIND SENDING THEIR YOUNG ONES TO BED WITH A TOY OR

SECURITY OBJECT, HELPS THEM MAKE RELAX AND MAKE IT THROUGH THE

NIGHT. FOR LEE MEMORIAL HEALTH SYSTEM, I'M AMY OSHIER. Return to index of stories...

PICTURES OF HERSELF.

BUT TWO WEEKS AGO, THE MARRIED MOTHER OF TWO YOUNG KIDS WOKE UP TO FIND THAT

HER PERFECTLY P-G PICS WERE BEING USED IN A VERY X-RATED WAY.

Melissa Esplin ReaxIt infuriated me and sort of sent me into a panic.I was

just angry that people would think that that person was me.

SOME OF THE TOTALLY APPROPRIATE PHOTOS FROM ESPLIN'S BLOG HAD BEEN STOLEN.

AND POSTED ON A PORN SITE, NEXT TO VERY GRAPHIC IMAGES OF SOMEONE ELSE'S

BODY. BUT THAT'S NOT ALL THAT WAS ON THE SITE. ESPLIN'S NAME, THE CITY SHE

LIVES IN, AND A LINK TO HER FACEBOOK PAGE WERE ALL THERE TOO. SHE

IMMEDIATELY STARTED GETTING BOMBARDED WITH MESSAGES FROM STRANGE MEN.

Melissa Esplin Reax You're pretty, those pictures were really interesting. I

'd like to get to know you more then some got considerably more graphic.

THEN, THE SECOND SHOCK. ESPLIN SAYS SHE FOUND SHE WAS THE TARGET OF

ATTEMPTED CYBER-EXTORTION, AND THAT THE SITE WOULD ONLY TAKE THE IMAGES DOWN

IF SHE AGREED TO PAY FOUR HUNDRED DOLLARS.

Melissa Esplin Reax Really?! Like I would pay someone $400.who knows what

they would have done with my credit card information.I'm one of many

women who are extorted on this site everyday.

Nats - quick montage of internet snaps

POSTING PHOTOS ONLINE IS EASIER AND MORE POPULAR THAN EVER.WITH MILLIONS

OF US SHARING SELFIES AND OTHER PERSONAL PICS ON SITES LIKE INSTAGRAM,

SNAPCHAT, AND FACEBOOK.

EXPERTS SAY WHAT HAPPENED TO ESPLIN COULD HAPPEN TO ANYONE.AND EVENTS LIKE

THIS ARE MORE COMMON THAN EVER.

Brad Garrett/Former FBI Agent
