OFFICIALS SEARCHING FOR THE MISSING MALAYSIAN PLANE SAY THEY HAVE PICKED UP A SECOND SET OF PINGS THAT COULD BE FROM THE FLIGHT'S BLACK BOX.

KATY TUR FROM KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA Return to index of stories...


MISSING PLANE-TRX PKG


ANOTHER BREAK IN THE SEARCH FOR MH370.

OCEAN SHIELD HAS DETECTED TWO MORE SETS OF PINGS.

THIS IS IN ADDITION TO THE TWO OTHER SETS, BRINGING THE GRAND TOTAL TO FOUR.

THEY'VE ANALYZED ALL OF THESE SIGNALS, AND THEY DO BELIEVE THAT THEY ARE CONSISTENT WITH A BLACK BOX, SAYING THAT THEY ARE STABLE, DISTINCT AND CLEAR PULSES.

"I believe we are searching in the right area, but we need to visually identify aircraft wreckage before we can confirm with certainty that this is the final resting place of MH370."

WHAT OCEAN SHIELD'S GONNA DO RIGHT NOW IS THAT THEY'RE GONNA CONTINUE LISTENING, CONTINUE SCANNING THE AREA THAT THEY ARE IN, HOPEFULLY FINDING ANY MORE SETS OF PINGS.

THE MORE THEY HEAR THE MORE THEY CAN BETTER DETERMINE WHERE THOSE BLACK BOXES OR THAT MISSING PLANE MAY BE.

THEY'RE GONNA EXHAUST ALL POSSIBILITIES THAT THE BATTERIES ON THOSE BEACONS MAY STILL BE WORKING.

ONCE THEY'VE DONE THAT, THEY WILL SEND THE UNMANNED SUBMARINE DOWN TO SCAN THE OCEAN FLOOR.

THINK OF IT IN THE WAY THAT YOU MOW YOUR LAWN, YOU'LL GO UP ONE DIRECTION, MAKE A SLIGHT ADJUSTMENT AND GO BACK OVER AND OVER AGAIN UNTIL IT SPOTS ANY POTENTIAL DEBRIS.

BUT THIS IS GONNA BE PRETTY DIFFICULT, AND IT COULD TAKE SOME TIME.

MAYBE THE MOST TELLING THING THAT CAME OUT OF THE NEWS CONFERENCE TODAY, BECAUSE EVEN THE LEADERS ARE SAYING THAT THEY'RE BEING CAUTIOUS, THAT THEY'RE NOT CONFIRMING THAT THIS IS PART OF MH370.

BUT THE MOST TELLING THING THAT THEY'RE SAYING IS THAT THEY ARE GETTING ACCOMMODATIONS READY FOR THE FAMILY MEMBERS. THAT SHOULD BE READY BY THE END OF THIS WEEK.

"Does that mean we're going to see wreckage pulled from the water as soon as then? Probably not. The submarine still has to scan. Then when they find the plane if they do who knows what it will take to get it out of the water. Remember it's very deep down there, three miles deep, there's a ton of silt, so the process of actually getting the plane out could take quite some time.

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.

"Drier and cooler weather settles in"

Winds will continue to be breezy out of the northwest with gusts up to 25mph. Patchy clouds will linger around through the mid day hours, with more sunshine breaking out during the afternoon hours. Daytime highs will be significantly cooler as they top out in the middle to upper 70s. As a dry airmass settles in, humidity levels will drop and our afternoon will remain quite comfortable.

Mostly clear skies will prevail tonight and temperatures will tumble into the middle 50s here in town. There will be a bit of a chill in the air, especially across our inland and northern cool spots, as the mercury drops into lower 50s by morning.

High pressure will have a nice grip on our weather through the end of the week. This will keep us in the 50s for one more night, but as winds start to veer more to the east a quick temperature rebound is forecast. By Thursday, daytime highs will climb into the lower to middle 80s with mainly dry and sunny weather. Rain returns to the area by Tuesday of next week. Return to index of stories...

17-YEAR-OLD KAITLYN TUNKS IS A SENIOR TRACK STAR WHO LIVES TO RUN.

"Just the fact that I like to get out there and run. There's nothing else and my team is like my family."

RUNNING HAS LANDED KAITLYN A TRACK SCHOLARSHIP - A PRIZE SHE MUST STAY IN TIP-TOP SHAPE TO CLAIM. BUT SOMETHING THAT PAIN WAS THREATENING.

"It feels like so much pressure on your shins and it hurts like a shooting pain down my shin. And in my arches it just feels like my muscles are tightening up."

"She was feeling more pain within the front, the anterior part of the ankle."

FOOT AND ANKLE SPECIALIST TYSON GREEN SAYS SHOE DETAILS TYPICALLY FOCUS ON THE OUTSIDE. NOT THE INSIDE.

THE RESULT: DEVASTATING INJURIES FOR ATHLETES IN THEIR PRIME.

"Everything from shin splits, plantar fascititis, ankle rotation, there's all kinds of things that could happen, achilles tendon injuries."

CUSTOM-FITTED INSERTS ARE GAME-CHANGERS FOR HIGH IMPACT ATHLETES - REDIRECTING THE PRESSURE IN CERTAIN PARTS OF THE FOOT.

"You have to make sure you stabilize the heel, the arch, and look at what they're doing with it. Is it a running back, is it a wide receiver, what kind of movements are they having?"

LAST FOOTBALL SEASON, DOCTOR GREEN AND HIS TEAM AT CENTER FOR ORTHOPEDICS FITTED *EVERY MCNEESE STATE FOOTBALL PLAYER WITH CUSTOM INSERTS.

HE SAYS THE SEASON-ENDING INJURIES SAW A BIG DROP.

"With the football team, we saw a drastic reduction in injuries, especially lower extremity injuries like ACLs, ankle sprains and things that are nagging injuries that keep them out."

FOR KAITLYN, THE INSERTS CHANGED HER RUNNING FORM - AND INCREASED HER SPEED.

"Before I had them, when I would run the balls of my feet would feel like pound, pound, pound. With this, it's more cushion and more soft."

NOW SHE'S DREAMING BIGGER THAN EVER BEFORE - WITH HER EYES ON THE 2016 OLYMPICS.

TRACIE POTTS IS IN WASHINGTON. Return to index of stories...


UKRAINE LATEST-PKG


THIS IS WHAT HAS THE U-S CONCERNED:

PRO-RUSSIAN DEMONSTRATIONS IN AT LEAST THREE PARTS OF EASTERN UKRAINE.

IN LUHANSK, 60 PEOPLE ARE BEING HELD HOSTAGE, WITH DEMANDS FOR AN ELECTION -- A VOTE FOR INDEPENDENCE, JUST LIKE CRIMEA.

THE U-S THINKS RUSSIA'S BEHIND IT AND PROMISES QUICK ACTION IF RUSSIA MOVES INTO EASTERN UKRAINE.

"It DOESN'T have to be this way but will if Russia continues down this provacative path."

SECRETARY OF STATE JOHN KERRY IS SUGGESTING MORE SANCTIONS AGAINST MAJOR PARTS OF RUSSIA'S ECONOMY.

INDIVIDUAL SANCTIONS AGAINST PRESIDENT PUTIN'S CLOSEST ADVISERS HAVEN'T WORKED SO FAR:

Arizona:43-:48

"What you're doing is talking strongly and carrying a very small stick. In fact, a twig."

TODAY LAWMAKERS WILL INTRODUCE A BILL TO HELP UKRAINE FIGHT BACK:

California:53-:59

"It's unconscionable that the Ukraine is facing this and the United States is standing on the sidelines and not even actively advising their military."

ADVICE ONLY - NO TROOPS.

AIMED AT PUNISHING RUSSIA, BUT NOT STARTING ANOTHER WAR.

NURSING HOME STRIPPER SUIT-PKG


I felt terrible I was shaken and he told me what to do.

THAT'S HOW 85-YEAR-OLD BERNICE YOUNGBLOOD DESCRIBES THIS. IT'S YOUNGBLOOD PUTTING MONEY INTO A NEARLY NAKED STRIPPERS UNDERWEAR SOMETHING SHE SAYS HER NURSES MADE HER DO.

They told me what to do.

YOUNGBLOODS SON FRANKLIN FOUND OUT ABOUT THE INCIDENT WHEN HE DISCOVERED THE SHOCKING PHOTO IN HIS MOMS DRAWER. HE ALSO SAYS SHE WAS FORCED TO TIP WITH HER OWN PERSONAL CASH WHICH IS SUPPOSED TO BE UNDER LOCK AND KEY BY THE FACILITY.

Too much sex and craziness going on now it in the nursing home and it don't belong here.

THE PHOTO ALSO SHOWS OTHER RESIDENTS LOOKING ON AT THE EAST NECK NURSING CENTER IN WEST BABYLON. BUT IT ALSO SHOWS A WOMAN, SEEMINGLY ENJOYING THE MOMENT, WHO NURSING HOME LAWYERS SAY BELONGS TO YOUNGBLOOD'S EXTENDED FAMILY JUNE LEDRESS.

She happens to be the live in girlfriend who holds herself out as the wife of mister Youngblood who is complaining here.

BUT THE YOUNGBLOODS DISPUTE THAT.

If you look at the picture it's clear she's a staff member.

THE NURSING HOME ATTORNEY SAYS THE FACILITY HAS A BOARD RUN BY ELDERLY RESIDENTS POINTING OUT IT WAS THEM WHO AGREED TO THE SO CALLED ENTERTAINMENT EVENT.

They requested it and approved it, they wanted the activity.

BOBBIE SACKMAN WITH THE COUNCIL OF SENIOR CENTERS AND SERVICES SAYS SHE'S NEVER HEARD OF A STRIPPER AT A NURSING HOME IN HER 40 YEAR CAREER AND IT'S INAPPROPRIATE AS GROUP ENTERTAINMENT.

They do want to have sex at 80 or 90 that is appropriate. This was a situation of a woman with vast Alzheimer's and she didn't know what was going on.

IT'S A BATTLE HITTING EVERYONE FROM ATTORNEYS TO RESIDENTS AND IT HAS PEOPLE HERE AND ELSEWHERE DEBATING JUST WHAT IS APPROPRIATE AND WHAT ISN'T, IN THE SENIOR YEARS. Return to index of stories...

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.

"Drier and cooler weather settles in"

Winds will continue to be breezy out of the northwest with gusts up to 25mph. Patchy clouds will linger around through the mid day hours, with more sunshine breaking out during the afternoon hours. Daytime highs will be significantly cooler as they top out in the middle to upper 70s. As a dry airmass settles in, humidity levels will drop and our afternoon will remain quite comfortable.

Mostly clear skies will prevail tonight and temperatures will tumble into the middle 50s here in town. There will be a bit of a chill in the air, especially across our inland and northern cool spots, as the mercury drops into lower 50s by morning.

High pressure will have a nice grip on our weather through the end of the week. This will keep us in the 50s for one more night, but as winds start to veer more to the east a quick temperature rebound is forecast. By Thursday, daytime highs will climb into the lower to middle 80s with mainly dry and sunny weather. Rain returns to the area by Tuesday of next week. Return to index of stories...

HE PULLED THIS CAR OVER FOR A SEAT BELT VIOLATION WHEN HE TURNED TO SEE A WOMAN ON HER CELL PHONE HEADED STRAIGHT FOR HIM.

"Had he been pinned between those cars it would have been serious injury or even death."
