"just because the police pull you over for speeding doesn't mean they should have access to you entire life"

AND EVERY JUSTICE, TODAY, AGREED.

"Modern cellphones are not just another technological convenience. With all they contain and all they may reveal, they hold for many Americans the primacies of life,"

"MODERN CELLPHONES ARE NOT JUST ANOTHER TECHNOLOGICAL CONVENIENCE.WROTE CHIEF JUSTICE JOHN ROBERTS. WITH ALL THEY CONTAIN AND ALL THEY MAY REVEAL, THEY HOLD FOR MANY AMERICANS THE PRIVACIES OF LIFE,"

THE DECISION MEANS POLICE CAN KEEP A PHONE, TURN IT OFF AND SHIELD IT FROM REMOTE ERASURE. BUT THEY NEED WARRANT TO LOOK AT THE CONTENT. MIXED REACTION TODAY.

Sot: Bill King, owns a smart phone :47-:53

"There's so much of your life in this little device that the court is right to really set up some stiff protections"

COMES AT A COST.

WHAT YOU'RE DOING RIGHT NOW MAY LEAD TO AN EARLY DEATH. SITTING!

ERIKA EDWARDS SHOWS US WHAT'S BEHIND THE NEW WARNING. Return to index of stories...


SITTING DEATH-PKG


SOMETIMES, ALL WE WANT TO DO AFTER A LONG DAY PARKED AT A DESK AT WORK. IS VEG OUT ON THE COUCH. AND BINGE ON SOME MINDLESS TELEVISION.

BUT SPENDING OUR LIVES IN FRONT OF THE T-V. MAY CUT OUR LIVES SHORT.

"People who watched more than 3 hours a day of television seem to have a higher risk of premature death."

DR. NIECA GOLDBERG IS A SPOKESWOMAN FOR THE AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION. WHICH HAS PUBLISHED NEW RESEARCH THAT FINDS THAT SEDENTARY BEHAVIOR OF WATCHING AT LEAST 3 HOURS OF T-V A DAY MAY DOUBLE THE RISK OF DYING EARLY.

"Lack of physical activity is associated with high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity, and diabetes."

THOSE ARE BIG RISK FACTORS FOR HEART DISEASE -- THE NATION'S NUMBER ONE KILLER.

THE STUDY FOUND NO LINK BETWEEN EARLY DEATH AND EXCESSIVE COMPUTER TIME. SOME EXPERTS SUGGEST THE ISSUE WITH TOO MUCH T-V IS THAT WE TEND TO SNACK MINDLESSLY WHILE WATCHING SHOWS. AND WITH TECHNOLOGY TO BLAST THROUGH COMMERCIALS, THERE'S NO NEED TO GET UP AND MOVE AROUND.

DOCTORS RECOMMEND AT LEAST 150 MINUTES OF MODERATE PHYSICAL ACTIVITY EACH WEEK TO KEEP OUR HEARTS HEALTHY.

IT SOUNDS LIKE A HUGE CHUNK OF TIME -- UNTIL YOU BREAK IT UP INTO MORE MANAGEABLE PIECES.

"Walk to the store. Spend time walking around the mall. Take stairs instead of the elevator."

EXPERTS SAY THE T-V DOESN'T HAVE TO BE DANGEROUS. AS LONG AS WE EXERCISE OUR RIGHT TO HIT PAUSE EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE.

Obama: It's the only thing that he doesn't criticize me about.

"America cannot stand still and neither will I."

"I've initiated over 20 executive actions to try to tighten up some of the rules in the laws."

THOSE FAMOUS EXECUTIVE ACTIONS-- DOZENS AND DOZENS OF THEM-- TWEAKING REGULATIONS AND MAKING MOVES ON SOME OF THE MOST CONTROVERSIAL TOPICS--

. THINGS HE KNOWS CONGRESS WON'T OR CAN'T TOUCH: GUN CONTROL. CLIMATE CHANGE. MINIMUM WAGE. GAY MARRIAGE, POWER PLANTS. HEALTH CARE, IMMIGRATION!

"Whenever I can act on my own, I'm going to."

"We are not just going to be waiting for legislation"

"That's what I'm going to do with or without Congress."

"The president will announce new concrete actions that he will take using his pen."

". I've got a pen and I've got a phone."

THAT PEN, OUTRAGING CONGRESS. THINGS LIKE, NOT CONSULTING THEM ON THE DEAL FOR RELEASING BOWE BERGDAHL, AND ALLOWING HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF IMMIGRANT CHILDREN BROUGHT TO THE US ILLEGALLY BY THEIR PARENTS, TO STAY.

OTHER MODERN PRESIDENTS HAVE NOT USED EXECUTIVE ACTIONS, OVER MORE-LEGALLY-BINDING EXECUTIVE ORDERS.

BOEHNER'S SPOKESMAN SAYS-- "THE PRESIDENT HAS A CLEAR RECORD OF IGNORING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE'S ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES AND EXCEEDING HIS CONSTITUTIONAL AUTHORITY, WHICH HAS DANGEROUS IMPLICATIONS FOR BOTH OUR SYSTEM OF GOVERNMENT AND OUR ECONOMY."

LESS INVASIVE OPERATIONS ARE CHANGING THE LANDSCAPE IN SURGERY.

WHEN IT COMES TO LUNG CANCER, SHRINKING SURGERY IS INCREASING BENEFITS TO THE PATIENT.

IN TODAYS HEALTH MATTERS AMY OSHIER LOOKS AT VIDEO-ASSISTED SURGERY. Return to index of stories...


HEALTH MATTERS-PKG


More people die from lung cancer than any other type of cancer. Surgery, chemo AND radiation -- ARE THE TRIAD OF TREATMENT. Now, doctors are TAKING A NEW APPROACH TO SURGERY THAT IS MAKING THE SURGICAL EXPERIENCE A BIT LESS TRAUMATIC.

DR. PAUL DiGIORGI/CARDIOTHORACIC SURGEON

RUNS:

:22 Right, it's called VATS or Video Assisted Thoracic Surgery. So rather than making a larger incision in the chest wall and using a rib spreader to see exactly what's going on in the chest. We can use a small incision with a 5 mm camera, which is about a quarter of an inch, and look at the image on the TV screen and operate on the screen rather than having to look on the chest directly.

AMY OSHIER/REPORTING

RUNS:

This is part of the trend in downsizing surgery. By shrinking equipment, doctors are able to make smaller incisions. With the operation being less traumatic, it is having a bigger impact on patient's recovery.

DR. PAUL DiGIORGI/CARDIOTHORACIC SURGEON

RUNS:

:22 It's a huge advantage for pain and reducing respiratory complications. They have much lower chances of getting pneumonias and other problems like that. And as a result, they're out of the hospital faster, they'll feel better afterwards.

THE VIDEO-ASSISTED PROCEDURE, INVOLVES several small incisions in the chest. A scope with a camera on the TIP guides the surgeon to the tumor. FROM HERE, THE MASS OR LOBE IS CUT, BAGGED AND REMOVED THROUGH ONE OF THE HOLES.

DR. PAUL DiGIORGI/CARDIOTHORACIC SURGEON

RUNS:

2:05 You can still take out as much or as little lung as you ever wanted to before. But it's with much better visualization.

IN MANY CASES, THE VATS PROCEDURE IS USED TO BOTH BIOPSY AND SURGICALLY TREAT LUNG CANCER- IN A SINGLE OPERATION. FOR LEE MEMORIAL HEALTH SYSTEM, I'M AMY OSHIER. Return to index of stories...

SUMMER IS HERE

**Nats kids: woo hoo! ** 00;00;14 clip 2

AND FAMILIES ACROSS THE COUNTRY ARE DIVING IN.

**Nats kids laughing "I love summer"**

BUT HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED WHAT GERMS ARE WAITING IN THE WATER?

**rossen report gfx splash**

WE SUITED UP TO FIND OUT.

**nats josh: time to test the pool**

WHILE YOU VACATION OUR ROSSEN REPORTS TEAM IS HARD AT WORK TAKING SAMPLES FROM POOLS AND HOT TUBS AT FIVE TOP HOTEL CHAINS AND SENDING THEM OFF TO THIS CERTIFIED LAB FOR TESTING.

**nats jo: on to the next pool.**

RIGHT AWAY, LOOK WHAT WE FOUND ON TOP OF THE FILTER.VISIBLE DIRT IN THE SHALLOW END, THIS MYSTERY DEBRIS FLOATING ON TOP.AND THATS NOT ALL LOOK AT THIS CLUMP OF HAIR. YOU'RE SWIMMING IN THIS.

***nats jo: another one down

SO WE'RE SURPRISED WHEN THE LAB REPORT COMES BACK SHOWING NO DANGEROUS BACTERIA IN ANY OF THE POOLS. GOOD NEWS! BUT HERE COMES TROUBLE.

**nats jo: let see how dirty this hot tub is**

WHEN WE TESTED THIS HOT TUB, WE FOUND TOTAL COLIFORM AND ENTEROCOCCUS. IN PLAIN ENGLISH: THAT'S FECAL MATTER.

DR. ROBERT GLATTER:

It means someone went to the bathroom, then got in the pool, or went to the bathroom in the pool. Two bad situations at best.

WE SHARED OUR RESULTS WITH OUR EXPERT DR. ROBERT GLATTER.AN E-R DOC AT NEW YORK'S LENOX HILL HOSPITAL.

JEFF ROSEN:

I've always assumed that the chemicals, the chlorine in these pools, kills the bacteria.

DR. ROBERT GLATTER:

They do, to an extent, but not completely. So, the bacteria can actually still thrive in the warm environment. And it's actually where they thrive best.

AND IT'S ABOUT TO GET WORSE IN YET ANOTHER HOT TUB.WE FOUND SOMETHING CALLED "PSEUDO-MONAS"

JEFF ROSEN: "What can you get from that?"

DR. ROBERT GLATTER:

You can get a bad infection called a hot tub rash. /

JEFF ROSEN:

How easy is it to get sick from this? How long do I need to be in the hot tub?

DR. ROBERT GLATTER:

It could be minutes./

JEFF ROSEN:

That quick.

DR. ROBERT GLATTER:

That quick.

ALLEN ELDER KNOWS JUST HOW DANGEROUS DIRTY HOT TUBS CAN BE. ONE QUICK DIP IN A PUBLIC HOT TUB SENT *HIM* TO THE HOSPITAL.

SOT ALLEN ELDER
