FIRST ALERT FORECAST-CLIP


FORECAST OPEN Return to index of stories...


FORECAST-WXWALL


Storms chances this evening

Though we have had a relatively quiet day across Southwest Florida so far, the potential for showers or thunderstorms to develop late this afternoon and this evening remains viable. The west coast seabreeze has had difficulty forming today, and with thunderstorms east of the region moving westward, we'll stand the chance for storm development along the coast this evening. Though the activity tonight may remain isolated, it cannot be ruled out.

Temperatures on Tuesday look seasonal, with forecast highs reaching 92 at Fort Myers, 90 at Naples, 91 at Port Charlotte and 93 at LaBelle.

A similar weather pattern looks likely on Tuesday. Easterly wind flow across the Florida peninsula should push any storms that develop on the east coast in our direction, with the potential for more late afternoon and early evening development along the US 41 corridor possible. A wedge of some drier air in the mid levels of the atmosphere may reduce the overall coverage to isolated, but we'll again need to leave in the rain and thunder risk late Tuesday.

For the rest of the week, highs look to reach the low 90s, with isolated to scattered rain chances during the late afternoons for each of the upcoming days. Return to index of stories...

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.

HILLARY CLINTON IN THE POLLS-TRX-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."

BERGDAHL DISAPEARANCE INVESTIGATED-PKG


--REPORTER PKG-AS FOLLOWS--

THE MAIN QUESTION IN THE BOWE BERGDAHL CONTROVERSY. IS HE A DESERTER?

NOW.A TWO-STAR GENERAL WILL INVESTIGATE.

THE GENERAL -- APPOINTED BY THE PENTAGON BUT NOT NAMED PUBLICLY -- WILL LOOK INTO BERGDAHL'S DISAPPEARANCE FROM BASE IN JUNE OF 2009.

AN ARMY INVESTIGATION IN THE MONTHS AFTER HE DISAPPEARED FOUND THAT BERGDAHL DID DELIBERATELY LEAVE HIS BASE.IN THE PAKTIKA PROVINCE OF AFGHANISTAN.

BUT IT DID *NOT* FIND THAT BERGDAHL DESERTED.

THAT WOULD DEPEND ON HIS INTENT.

AND THE ANSWER TO THAT QUESTION IS NOT YET KNOWN.

"You want to make sure that he knows what's going on, that he is oriented and alert and that he's not psychotic. By psychotic I mean hearing voices that aren't there and seeing things that aren't there."

AND IT'S NOT CLEAR WHEN BERGDAHL HIMSELF WILL BE QUESTIONED.

AFGHAN WITNESSES TELL C-N-N THAT WHEN HE DISAPEARED.BERGDAHL WAS ABDUCTED AND BEATEN.

SOME OF HIS FELLOW SOLDIERS SAY HE MAY HAVE BEEN TRYING TO CONTACT THE TALIBAN.

"I heard it straight from the interpreter's lips as he heard it over the radio. And at that point. it was like 'this is snowballing out of control.there's a lot more to this story than a soldier walking away."

ANOTHER QUESTION. WERE ANY U-S TROOPS KILLED WHILE SEARCHING FOR BERGDAHL?

SOME SOLDIERS SAY YES.SIX TROOPS WERE KILLED.

THE PENTAGON SAYS THERE'S NO EVIDENCE OF THAT.

THE ANSWER TO ANOTHER QUESTION IS ALSO NOT KNOWN.

THE GOOD NEWS, WHILE HELPING OTHERS, YOUR BODY ALSO REAPS SOME BENEFIT.

THE FIRST - YOUR BLOOD MAY FLOW BETTER - ONE STUDY FOUND BLOOD DONORS ARE 88% LESS LIKELY TO SUFFER A HEART ATTACK.

IT ALSO REDUCES RISK OF STROKE AND CANCER.

ANOTHER BENEFIT - YOU'LL GET A MINI CHECK-UP - A QUICK PHYSICAL.

AND YOUR BLOOD WILL BE TESTED FOR INFECTIOUS DISEASES.

THIRD - YOUR IRON LEVELS WILL STAY BALANCED - BECAUSE TOO MUCH IRON IS BAD FOR BLOOD VESSELS.

:11 Sometimes you think you know- but until you have something that can truly monitor what you're doing and give you a true baseline, you're just guessing.

DR. SAL LACAGNINA/VP HEALTH & WELLNESS

RUNS:

:52 Most people think that they're more active than they really are. And when you look at the recommendations by the Heart Association for 150 minutes of exercise per week, the majority of people in this country don't get anywhere near that.

AMY OSHIER/REPORTING

RUNS:

These technology-driven devices deliver a deluge of digestible data. Question does it add up to better fitness or just extreme narcism?

DR. SAL LACAGNINA/VP HEALTH & WELLNESS

RUNS:

2:16 Some of the devices really track a lot of different metrics. I think that's really helpful because people can see you know, am I staying on track? Do I occasionally fall off the wagon or do I fall off the wagon on most days? So I think they really are good.

SEEING IT SPELLED OUT RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU- CAN BE IT'S OWN MOTIVATION.

FORECAST-WXWALL


Storms chances this evening

Though we have had a relatively quiet day across Southwest Florida so far, the potential for showers or thunderstorms to develop late this afternoon and this evening remains viable. The west coast seabreeze has had difficulty forming today, and with thunderstorms east of the region moving westward, we'll stand the chance for storm development along the coast this evening. Though the activity tonight may remain isolated, it cannot be ruled out.

Temperatures on Tuesday look seasonal, with forecast highs reaching 92 at Fort Myers, 90 at Naples, 91 at Port Charlotte and 93 at LaBelle.

A similar weather pattern looks likely on Tuesday. Easterly wind flow across the Florida peninsula should push any storms that develop on the east coast in our direction, with the potential for more late afternoon and early evening development along the US 41 corridor possible. A wedge of some drier air in the mid levels of the atmosphere may reduce the overall coverage to isolated, but we'll again need to leave in the rain and thunder risk late Tuesday.

For the rest of the week, highs look to reach the low 90s, with isolated to scattered rain chances during the late afternoons for each of the upcoming days. 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?"
