FIRST WEATHER-WX WALL


Despite a cool start to the day with a fair amount of clouds, we'll be expecting another round of seabreeze induced showers and thunderstorms this afternoon.

Through mid-day on Monday, the region will stay quiet weather-wise. Temps will be approaching 90 degrees around lunchtime, and most of Southwest Florida will end up topping out in the low to mid 90s through the afternoon.

Isolated storms will start to pop by the mid afternoon, and these storms will keep building and expanding through the late afternoon and into the evening. Now that our winds have become more easterly, the sea breeze won't be able to work as far inland, which will keep the highest rain chances closer to the coast and along the urban corridor. The prime time for rain for most of us will be from 3-6 p.m.

After the rain fades close to sunset, expect partial clearing with lows dropping into the low to mid 70s through the overnight period.

We'll rinse and repeat this forecast Tuesday with the highest rain chances again staying along to the urban corridor. Return to index of stories...

CLINTON VS OBAMA-VO IN PLASMA


A NEW C-N-N POLL SHOWS HILLARY CLINTON NOW GETTING HIGHER MARKS THAN PRESIDENT OBAMA ON EVERY MAJOR ISSUE.

BRIANNA KEILAR BRINGS US MORE ON WHAT THE NUMBERS MAY MEAN IF THE FORMER SECRETARY OF STATE DECIDES TO RUN FOR PRESIDENT IN 2016. Return to index of stories...


CLINTON VS OBAMA-PKG


--REPORTER PKG-AS FOLLOWS--

FORGET REPUBLICANS. HILLARY CLINTON IS WALLOPING A BIG-NAME DEMOCRAT IN A NEW POLL:

HER FORMER BOSS, PRESIDENT OBAMA.

IN A NEW CNN-ORC SURVEY, CLINTON TOPS OBAMA IN EVERY AREA TESTED, FROM HOW SHE WOULD HANDLE THE ECONOMY, TO IMMIGRATION, EVEN TERRORISM. DESPITE CRITICISM OVER HER HANDLING OF THE TERROR ATTACK AT THE U.S. CONSULATE IN BENGHAZI THAT KILLED A U.S. AMBASSADOR AND THREE OTHERS.

"Let me shake some more hands."

AS CLINTON CONSIDERS WHETHER TO TRY PERSUADING VOTERS TO ELECT BACK-TO-BACK PRESIDENTS FROM THE SAME PARTY -- HISTORICALLY A DIFFICULT FEAT -- SHE ALSO MUST DECIDE HOW MUCH TO DISTANCE HERSELF FROM AN INCREASINGLY UNPOPULAR COMMANDER IN CHIEF.

SHE'S ALREADY STARTED DRAWING CONTRASTS ON FOREIGN POLICY -- AN AREA SHE LEADS THE PRESIDENT 63 PERCENT TO 40 PERCENT.

ON ARMING THE REBELS IN SYRIA:

"I did feel quite strongly that we needed to see if it were possible to vet and train and equip moderate opposition figures."

ON OUSTING EGYPTIAN PRESIDENT HOSNI MUBARAK:

"I had a lot of apprehension about just throwing Mubarak out of office not knowing what was going to come next, or not helping to prepare a more orderly transition."

AND LIFTING THE TRADE EMBARGO ON CUBA:

"I would like to change the psychology of this issue. We've been in a corner for too long, we need to get out of the corner."

BUT THIS POLL FINDS HER TOPPING THE PRESIDENT EVEN ON HANDLING HEALTH CARE.

"Thank you, Mr. Chairman."

CLINTON'S PUSH FOR UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE FAILED IN THE EARLY 1990s.

SIXTEEN YEARS LATER PRESIDENT OBAMA SUCCESSFULLY SIGNED HIS OWN BILL INTO LAW. BUT THEN:

"That's on me. We fumbled the rollout on this health care law."

HEALTHCARE.GOV FLOPPED INITIALLY-- FOR WEEKS MANY AMERICANS WERE UNABLE TO SIGN UP FOR INSURANCE, HURTING OBAMA'S STANDING ON THE ISSUE. Return to index of stories...


CLINTON VS OBAMA-TAG


CLINTON'S APPROVAL RATING IS HIGH -- 55 PERCENT TO OBAMA'S 47.

BUT IT HAS SLOWLY ERODED FROM A HIGH OF 67 SINCE SHE LEFT HER ROLE AT THE STATE DEPARTMENT. Return to index of stories...

BINGE WATCHING-PKG


FACE IT. WE'VE ALL DONE IT:

I DID IT ONCE.

THIRTEEN HOURS OF ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK

AND I'M NOT ALONE.

" 'Once Upon a Time,' 'How I Met Your Mother' and 'The Killing.'"

"'Walking Dead,' 'Arrested Development.'"

"I binge watch most television shows."

NETFLIX FOUND A RECIPE FOR SUCCESS, WITH ORIGINAL HIT SHOWS 'ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK' AND 'HOUSE OF CARDS.'

GIVING PEOPLE WHAT THEY SEEM TO WANT ALL AT ONCE.

AN ENTIRE SEASON'S WORTH.

"I used to be on the edge of the frame, now I'm only three feet away."

THERE ARE SOME HARD CORE VIEWERS WHO WILL ABSOLUTELY DEVOUR THE SHOW IN THE FIRST 13 HOURS, AND ANOTHER BIGGER NUMBER THAT WILL WATCH IN THE FIRST 24.

AND A BIGGER NUMBER THAN THAT THAT WILL WATCH IT IN 48.

IT'S EASY TO GET SUCKED IN.

"Maybe you and I could partner up."

"You wanna cook crystal meth?"

BUT IS BINGING THE BEST WAY TO WATCH SOME OF THE BEST TELEVISION?

A NEW YORK MAGAZINE PIECE ARGUES AGAINST EPISODE BINGING, URGING US TO TAKE A STAND AGAINST IT FOR OUR OWN SAKE.

RESEARCH PSYCHOLOGIST AND AUTHOR SONJA LYUBOMIRSKY.

"Research suggests that that anticipation period is really pleasurable and if you take that anticipation and the kind of looking forward time out of the equation then you won't actually generate as much happiness."

THAT'S THE SCIENCE BEHIND IT, AND YES IT MAKES SOME SENSE.

"There's actually another sort of line of research that's relevant, and it shows that if you interrupt a positive experience you actually get more pleasure from it than if you don't interrupt it."

"There's something to be said for slowing down. And letting the episode sink in, letting yourself process it. And then coming back for more later."

"Or letting yourself sleep?"

UNITED IS THE LATEST AIRLINE TO CHANGE THE WAY YOU EARN FREQUENT FLYER MILES.

JOINING DELTA.JETBLUE.AND SOUTHWEST. THEY'RE NOW BASING POINTS EARNED. ON MONEY SPENT.NOT MILES FLOWN.

"Exactly. So the amount of redeemable miles you earn for awards travel will be based on the amount of money you spend"

THE POINTS GUY FOUNDER, BRIAN KELLY.

.SAYS THIS REALLY WILL SEPARATE ELITE AND BUSINESS TRAVELERS.FROM ECONOMY CLASS.

"In the grand scheme of things most leisure travelers are going to feel the pinch on this one"

BECAUSE OF THEIR MERGER, IT MAY BE A YEAR OR LONGER BEFORE AMERICAN AND US AIRWAYS JOIN THE CLUB.

BUT KELLY AND OTHER TRAVEL EXPERTS SAY.MAYBE IT'S TIME FOR CONSUMERS TO TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT THEIR LOYALTY PROGRAM.

"And if you've been flying a certain airline blindly simply because you think that you're getting a lot back in return it may be time to think differently"

THINK DIFFERENTLY NOT BY JOINING ANOTHER AIRLINE'S FREQUENT FLYER.

.BUT BY RELYING, FOR EXAMPLE, ON CREDIT CARDS WHICH THEY SAY ARE THE EASIEST WAY TO RACK UP MILES THESE DAYS. PROVIDED YOU PAY THEM OFF IN FULL MONTHLY.

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.Despite a cool start to the day with a fair amount of clouds, we'll be expecting another round of seabreeze induced showers and thunderstorms this afternoon.

Through mid-day on Monday, the region will stay quiet weather-wise. Temps will be approaching 90 degrees around lunchtime, and most of Southwest Florida will end up topping out in the low to mid 90s through the afternoon.

Isolated storms will start to pop by the mid afternoon, and these storms will keep building and expanding through the late afternoon and into the evening. Now that our winds have become more easterly, the sea breeze won't be able to work as far inland, which will keep the highest rain chances closer to the coast and along the urban corridor. The prime time for rain for most of us will be from 3-6 p.m.

After the rain fades close to sunset, expect partial clearing with lows dropping into the low to mid 70s through the overnight period.

We'll rinse and repeat this forecast Tuesday with the highest rain chances again staying along to the urban corridor. Return to index of stories...


ALZHEIMERS PREVENTION-TRX, VO IN PLASMA


MORE THAN 5 MILLION AMERICANS ARE LIVING WITH ALZHEIMERS DISEASE.

ALZHEIMERS PREVENTION-PKG


70 YEAR-OLD PETER BRISTOL IS GETTING AN INFUSION HE HOPES, OVER TIME, WILL PREVENT MEMORY LOSS. IT STARTED WHEN THIS RETIRED HORTICULTURIST STARTED FORGETTING THINGS.

"The plant names, uh friends names."

HE WAS WORRIED BECAUSE HIS MOTHER HAD ALZHEIMER'S, AND HIS BROTHER IS CURRENTLY LIVING WITH THE MEMORY ROBBING DISEASE. SO HE CAME TO BUTLER HOSPITAL TO UNDERGO EXTENSIVE MEMORY TESTING WHICH TURNED OUT TO BE NORMAL.

BUT THEN HE HAD A PET SCAN, LIKE THIS AND IT SHOWED A BUILDUP OF AMYLOID PROTEIN, OFTEN A PRECURSOR TO ALZHEIMER'S. AND THAT'S WHEN HE LEARNED ABOUT A NEW PREVENTION TRIAL.

"This is really a landmark study because it opens a new chapter in the fight against Alzheimer's and it puts the prevention of Alzheimer's on par with the prevention of the other major diseases like heart disease and cancer."

TO QUALIFY YOU MUST BE BETWEEN THE AGES OF 65 AND 85

"No significant memory complaints, we all have memory complaints but people are still functioning well. It's not interfering with their day to day life."

PETER QUALIFIED AND NOW EVERY MONTH FOR THREE YEARS, HE'LL BE INFUSED WITH A MEDICATION. IT'S ABOUT AN HOUR OF HIS TIME.

"It has a funny name. It's called solanezumab. and that's a targeted treatment against the amyloid plaques that build up in Alzheimer's."

IT'S NOT A NEW TREATMENT, IT'S BEEN STUDIED BEFORE IN FOLKS WITH MILD ALZHEIMER'S WITH SOME SUCCESS.

"So we think that testing it earlier in people who don't have any significant symptoms yet may be even more beneficial."

THIS IS A DOUBLE BLIND PLACEBO STUDY WHICH MEANS PETER HAS A FIFTY FIFTY CHANCE HE'S GETTING THE ACTUAL MEDICATION. HE'S FINE WITH THAT. AS A SCIENTIST, HE'S RESULTS ORIENTED.

"If there is a therapy out there, if there can be some kind of a protectant who's going to benefit, not necessarily me so much, but my children and my grandchildren."

THIS IS A MAJOR STUDY BEING DONE AT 60 SITES WORLDWIDE. PETER, AGAIN, THE FIRST TO TAKE PART.
