NIGERIA MISSING GIRLS-PKG


"Let us bow our heads for a moment of silence."

THE SENATE CHAPLAIN LED A MOMENT OF SILENCE OUTSIDE THE U-S CAPITOL, PRAYING FOR THE SAFE RETURN OF HUNDREDS OF GIRLS KIDNAPPED BY MILITANTS IN NIGERIA.

.BUT FOR MANY.PRAYERS ALONE AREN'T ENOUGH.

"We are now in the process of sending over counterterrorism experts, we are sending over hostage negotiators, and we are sending over people who can assist with this crisis."

SOME LAWMAKERS HAVE SUGGESTED SENDING U-S TROOPS TO NIGERIA.

"I think this is one of these operations which could involve special forces, but it could also involve U.N. Forces. I believe that we just can't let this go."

AT THE HEART OF THE KIDNAPPINGS IS A GROUP THE UNITED STATES CONSIDERS A TERRORIST ORGANIZATION.

THE VERY NAME OF BOKO HARAM MEANS "WESTERN EDUCATION IS SIN."

ACCORDING TO ACCOUNTS OF THE KIDNAPPINGS, MEMBERS OF BOKO HARAM OVERPOWERED GUARDS AT AN ALL-GIRLS SCHOOL IN NIGERIA ON APRIL 14. NEARLY THREE-HUNDRED GIRLS BETWEEN THE AGES OF 15 AND 18 WERE TAKEN FROM THEIR BEDS.

THE LEADER OF BOKO HARAM HAS PROMISED TO SELL THE GIRLS

DEMONSTRATIONS IN SUPPORT OF THE MISSING GIRLS HAVE BEEN HELD FROM WASHINGTON, D.C., TO LAGOS, NIGERIA. SOME PARENTS HAVE CRITICIZED THE NIGERIAN GOVERNMENT'S RESPONSE TO THE ABDUCTIONS.

.BUT OFFICIALS DEFEND SAY THEY'RE DOING WHAT THEY CAN.

"We are not fighting a standing army. We are not fighting an army who wears uniforms and stands on one side. We are fighting guerilla warfare."

OFFICIALS SAY THEY ARE IN "HOT PURSUIT."

"Give us time. We will get those girls back."

FIRST ALERT FORECAST-WXWALL


!!!!NEED WX ANCHOR CG!!!!!

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.

"A hot and dry forecast"

Sunshine was in abundance yesterday, and once again afternoon temperatures topped out in the lower 90s. Daytime highs will continue to be very warm and we'll see a gradual increase in the clouds each and every day.

Sunshine will fill our skies through the late morning hours, with a few clouds drifting across the area during the afternoon. Daytime highs will be quite toasty on our Wednesday as they climb into the lower 90s. The cool spots will be the beaches and coastal spots with temperatures cooling into the middle to upper 80s due to the development of the west coast seabreeze.

Plan on mostly clear skies through the evening and overnight hours. Overnight, temperatures will settle into the upper 60s.

As high pressure migrates east and pushes off the coast, winds will become more southerly across the peninsula. This will usher in more moisture, which will lead to higher humidity in the coming days. Morning lows will come up a bit as they bottom out near 70°. During the afternoons, mostly to partly sunny skies will prevail with mainly dry weather through Friday. Daytime temperatures will also remain in the lower 90s through the end of the week.

Rain prospects look to go up slightly by the weekend as a few isolated showers develop along the seabreeze. Return to index of stories...

NFL STYLE PROM DATES-INTRO


IT'S AN N-F-L STYLE DRAFT.

ONLY THIS TIME, STUDENTS ARE BEING RANKED AS POSSIBLE DATES FOR THE HIGH SCHOOL PROM.

THE DRAFT IS DRAWING A LOT OF CRITICISM AT ONE ORANGE COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL.

KRISTINE LAZAR REPORTS Return to index of stories...


NFL STYLE PROM DATES-PKG


SCRIPT:

none filed. web copy only.

Female students at Corona del Mar High School were being ranked as possible

dates for the high school prom in an NFL-style "draft." The draft is drawing

a lot of criticism.

Some male students held a "draft" to pick a prom date. Some of the draft

results appeared on Twitter. That Twitter account has since been deactivated

.

Some students say the draft involved a small group of people.

Eyewitness News did try to talk with the school principal, but the Corona

del Mar High School said she was not commenting. District officials say she

did send a letter to parents on Friday when she became aware of a rumor of a

prom draft.

"I am sure that the intention of this 'draft' is not to be harmful, but it

may be. It is not okay for any student to be objectified or judged in any

way," Principal Kathy Scott said in the letter.

In her message, Scott also urged parents to talk with students about the

seriousness of this, saying: "Prom is an important event in the lives of our

students and I would hate to have to cancel it or any other important

student-related activity due to the negative actions of a few." Return to index of stories...

VAMPIRE FACIALS-INTRO


A PROCEDURE DEVELOPED ABOUT 8 YEARS AGO IS GAINING POPULARITY.

IT'S CALLED THE VAMPIRE FACELIFT.

BUT INSTEAD OF USING SOMEONE ELSE'S BLOOD.

FOR THIS FACIAL TREATMENT YOUR OWN BLOOD IS THE CATALYST FOR A RELATIVELY PAIN-FREE BEAUTY UPGRADE.

HAILEY FRANCIS REPORTS. Return to index of stories...


VAMPIRE FACIALS-PKG


THE THEORY BEHIND THE VAMPIRE FACELIFT IS ACTUALLY NOT AS SCARY AS IT SOUNDS. DOCTOR KEVIN AISTER LIKES TO TELL HIS PATIENT TO THINK ABOUT WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE GET A CUT.

"You get a scab, eventually that scab goes away; and the skin heals. Well the first step in the process is the body sends platelets there. and those platelets turn on proteins."

.THOSE PROTEINS, IN TURN, ACTIVATE STEM CELLS WHICH BEGIN THE HEALING PROCESS.

"When these platelets are put in and activated, they're turning on dormant stem cells to rejuvenate the tissues."

THE PROCEDURE MADE POPULAR BY CELEBS LIKE KIM KARDASHIAN AND BAR RAFAELLI BEGINS WITH A SINGLE VILE OF THE PATIENT'S BLOOD. THE SAMPLE IS PUT INTO A CENTRIFUGE WHERE THERE PLATELET RICH PLASMA IS SEPARATED AND PREPARED IN INDIVIDUAL DOSES. MEANWHILE, AREAS TO BE TREATED ARE SUFFICIENTLY NUMBED AND DR. AISTER IS READY TO BEGIN.

"typically anywhere from 5 to 6 cc or ml's of volume is placed throughout the face - from the lower eye area down to the chin area."

THE OFFICE VISIT IS SHORT, ONLY ABOUT 45 MINUTES ACCORDING TO DR AISTER. THE RESULTS. WELL PATIENTS WILL HAVE TO SHOW SOME PATIENCE. IN ABOUT THREE WEEKS. IT'S THEN, DR AISTER SAYS, PATIENTS BEGIN TO SEE AND FEEL THE DIFFERENCE THEIR OWN BODY IS ABLE TO PRODUCE.

"Younger skin if you look at a baby's skin.it reflects light really well, because it really hydrated, it's very smooth. That's what we're talking about that youthful looking appearance." Return to index of stories...

GOURMET PETS-ON CAM


FROM ORGANIC TO FANCY. HIGH-END PET FOOD HAS BECOME BIG BUSINESS OVER THE LAST DECADE.

BUT DOES GOING GOURMET REALLY MAKE A DIFFERENCE?

KARIN CAIFA TAKES A LOOK. Return to index of stories...


GOURMET PETS-PKG


PUMPKIN, BANANA, PEANUT BUTTER, AND GINGER -- ALL SOUND LIKE PRETTY HEALTHY INGREDIENTS FOR PRETTY TASTY SNACKS.

BUT THEY'RE FOR THE DOGS. AND CATS, AND MORE.

"What you're going to find here are items that are going to be selected very consciously, trying to look at who the manufacturer is, how far does it travel, is it local? We do have a lot of foods that are local to the area. We buy from farmers' markets"

AMERICANS SPENT ALMOST 22 BILLION DOLLARSON PET FOOD LAST YEAR -- INCREASINGLY AT HIGHER END PET STORES LIKE THE BIG BAD WOOF -- AS OWNERS FOCUS ON THEIR PET'S HEALTH -- LIKE THEIR DIGESTION, OR EVEN ALLERGIES.

"Your total is 77-22."

BUT MOST OF THESE ITEMS COME AT A PREMIUM COMPARED TO WHAT'S AVAILABLE AT GROCERY STORES. WHAT CAN BUDGET-CONSCIOUS PET OWNERS DO?

VETERINARIAN ROBYN JOHNSON ADVISES FINDING A PRICE POINT THAT'S COMFORTABLE.

"I usually try to tell owners, you want to feed the best that you can within the price point you set. Yes there are foods that are better than others, but realistically, owners can afford only so much for some families."

PART OF MAKING THE RIGHT CHOICE AT ANY PRICE, IS KNOWING HOW TO READ LABELS, REGULATED BY THE F-D-A.

PRODUCTS LABELED "NATURAL" CANNOT CONTAIN ARTIFICAL COLORS OR PRESERVATIVES.

PRODUCTS LABELED "ORGANIC," MUST ADHERE TO THE SAME U-S-D-A GUIDELINES FOR HUMAN FOOD.

AND LABELS LIKE "PREMIUM," "SUPER PREMIUM," "HOLISTIC" AND "GOURMET," ARE JUST MARKETING TERMS -- NOT REQUIRING ANY HIGHER NUTRITIONAL STANDARDS.

WEATHER-WX WALL


!!!NEED WX ANCHOR CG!!!

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.

"A hot and dry forecast"

Sunshine was in abundance yesterday, and once again afternoon temperatures topped out in the lower 90s. Daytime highs will continue to be very warm and we'll see a gradual increase in the clouds each and every day.

Sunshine will fill our skies through the late morning hours, with a few clouds drifting across the area during the afternoon. Daytime highs will be quite toasty on our Wednesday as they climb into the lower 90s. The cool spots will be the beaches and coastal spots with temperatures cooling into the middle to upper 80s due to the development of the west coast seabreeze.

Plan on mostly clear skies through the evening and overnight hours. Overnight, temperatures will settle into the upper 60s.

As high pressure migrates east and pushes off the coast, winds will become more southerly across the peninsula. This will usher in more moisture, which will lead to higher humidity in the coming days. Morning lows will come up a bit as they bottom out near 70°. During the afternoons, mostly to partly sunny skies will prevail with mainly dry weather through Friday. Daytime temperatures will also remain in the lower 90s through the end of the week.

Rain prospects look to go up slightly by the weekend as a few isolated showers develop along the seabreeze. Return to index of stories...

HEALTH MATTERS-PKG


SARAH HALBEISON IS AN EXPERIENCED MOM.

SARAH HALBEISON/MOM

RUNS:

:14 I have a boy who's 5 and this is Zoey, she's 3.

SHE'S ALSO A SCHOOL NURSE. BETWEEN THE TWO, SHE'S SEEN HER SHARE OF SORE THROATS.

SARAH HALBEISON/MOM

RUNS:

:36 Most of the time it's pretty minor. It has to run it's course and it goes on it's way.

LIKE KIDS THEMSELVES, SORE THROATS COME IN A VARIETY OF SHAPES AND SIZES. SOME REQUIRE CLOSE ATTENTION. THE MAJORITY ARE VIRUSES. PAINFUL, BUT HARMLESS.

DR. DENISE DRAGO/PEDIATRICIAN

RUNS:

:58: The viral infections that cause tonsillitises tend to come along with more symptoms. So runny nose, cough, congestion. Those things are more common in just the run-of -the-mill viruses.

AMY OSHIER/REPORTING

RUNS:

The most serious form of sore throat is typically not seen in young kids. Strep throat is more common in children over five. And it has several symptoms that set it apart.

DR. DENISE DRAGO/PEDIATRICIAN

RUNS:

:45 Strep tends to be more along the lines of no coughing or congestion, just a really sore throat. High fever, generally above 102. They may have swollen glands.

STREP ALSO HAS OUTWARD SYMPTOMS.

SARAH HALBEISON/MOM

RUNS:

1:03 Sometimes I'll look in their throat and I see you know white spots or it's really beefy red or their tonsils are big. That's when I think or suspect it might be strep.

TO GET AN ACCURATE DIAGNOSIS, DOCTORS USE A RAPID, IN-OFFICE SWAB, FOLLOWING UP WITH A LAB TEST. TIMELY TREATMENT IS IMPORTANT. WHILE A VIRAL SORE THROAT WILL RESOLVE ITSELF. STREP IS LINKED TO RHEUMATIC FEVER AND THE SAME BACTERIA CAN CAUSE throat abscesses, ear infections, sinusitis, and skin infections.

DR. DENISE DRAGO/PEDIATRICIAN

RUNS:

1:53 Treating strep throat with antibiotics is something we have to do to prevent some of the consequences that come along with strep throat.

ONE MORE REASON TO BE WARY OF STREP- IT SPREADS. SO 24 HOURS ON ANTIBIOTICS AND NO FEVER BEFORE YOUR CHILD CAN GO BACK TO SCHOOL. FOR LEE MEMORIAL HEALTH SYSTEM, I'M AMY OSHIER. Return to index of stories...
