FIRST WEATHER-WX ANI BOX


HOT AND HUMID WITH AFTERNOON STORMS

We will find ourselves in a rather typical summertime pattern for the upcoming work week. Temperatures will be hot, yet seasonal for early July. Highs rather consistently are expected between 92 and 93 degrees.

With sea breeze interactions today, and for the next several days, you can expect scattered afternoon thunderstorms. Coverage from day to day will vary, yet the usual late afternoon and early evening time frame will be the most likely for that development. Today much of the activity will be from 3pm on through the evening and mainly aimed toward the inland areas.

TROPICAL UPDATE

Weather conditions look generally quiet regarding tropical cyclones across the Atlantic Ocean, Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea. No cyclones are active, and development of any storms is not anticipated in the next three to five days. Return to index of stories...

THE SUMMER RAINY SEASON IS CAUSING SOME SOUTHWEST FLORIDA HOMEOWNERS MORE ANXIETY.

LIGHTNING IS THREATENING HOMES.

JUST THIS WEEKEND NEIGHBORS TOOK GARDEN HOUSES AND EXTINGUISHERS TO FIGHT BACK FLAMES AFTER LIGHTNING JUST MISSED HOMES IN LEHIGH ACRES.

A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO FOUR CONDO UNITS WERE DESTROYED BY LIGHTNING ON SANIBEL.

JUST THIS WEEKEND A MANSION IN QUAIL WEST IN NAPLES WAS DESTROYED BY A LIGHTNING STRIKE.

LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENED - THE HOUSE IS A LOSS, THE FRONT OF THE HOME CAVED IN.

THE COUPLE ISN'T ALONE WITH THINKING LIGHTNING RODS AREN'T ALL THEY'RE MADE UP TO BE.

A RECENT STUDY FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA SHOWS THE TYPE OF SOIL FOUND IN SOUTHERN STATES MAY ALLOW FOR THE ELECTRICAL CURRENT TO MORE EASILY REACH INTO A HOME.

THE OWNER OF LIGHTNING PROTECTION SERVICES IN NAPLES SAYS INSTALLERS ALREADY KNEW THAT AND THEY TEST THE GROUND AT YOUR HOME BEFORE INSTALLING PROTECTION EQUIPMENT - HE SAYS WHEN DONE PROPERLY, HE CAN GUARANTEE ABOUT 93 PERCENT PROTECTION FROM LIGHTNING CAUSING A FIRE WITH CERTAIN TYPES OF LIGHTNING RODS AND THAT'S ONLY A SMALL PART OF THE PROTECTION.

THIS NAPLES COUPLE SAYS THEY'LL BE RESEARCHING THE PROTECTION EQUIPMENT WHEN THEY REBUILD THEIR HOME SO THEY WON'T HAVE TO GO THROUGH THIS AGAIN. Return to index of stories...

ACROSS EUROPE AND THE MIDDLE EAST, A SUDDEN, STEPPED UP SECURITY PRESSENCE FOR ALL U.S.-BOUND FLIGHTS, AFTER AMERICAN INTELLIGENCE WARNED OF A POSSIBLE NEW TERROR THREAT.

.A WELCOME RESPONSE FOR AMERICANS HEADED HOME.

"I think it makes sense. It makes sense to have added security, it makes me feel a bit safer."

THE NEW REGULATIONS REQUIRE PASSENGERS TO POWER-ON THEIR ELECTRONIC DEVICES BEFORE BOARDING.

.INCLUDING PHONES, TABLETS, COMPUTERS, and iPODS.

IF THEY DON'T POWER UP, THEY'RE NOT ALLOWED ON THE PLANE AND THE PASSENGER COULD BE SUBJECT TO SECONDARY SCREENING.

THE CONCERN: THAT AL QAEDA-RELATED TERROR GROUPS ARE WORKING ON A WAY TO PUT AN EXPLOSIVE INSIDE A BATTERY-POWERED DEVICE TO TAKE DOWN A PASSENGER PLANE.

NOW, AT THE REQUEST OF THE U.S. GOVERNMENT, AIRLINES AND AIRPORTS ARE RAMPING UP SECURITY ON DIRECT FLIGHTS TO THE U.S.

THE HOMELAND SECURITY SECRETARY ON MEET THE PRESS:

"I directed that we step up our aviation security at last point, at some last point of departure airports coming into the United States. This is not something to overreact to or over-speculate about. But it's something we felt was necessary."

AL QAEDA IN THE ARABIAN PENINSULA HAS BEEN FIXATED ON BRINGING DOWN A PASSENGER PLANE FOR YEARS:

-BEHIND THE CHRISTMAS 2009 UNDERWEAR BOMB ATTEMPT.

-AND THE 2010 PLOT TARGETING CARGO PLANES WITH SOPHISTICATED BOMBS HIDDEN IN PRINTER CARTRIDGES.

VOTER ID LAWS-PKG


INSIDE THIS NORTH CAROLINA FEDERAL COURTHOUSE. A CHALLENGE TO KEEP SOME OF THE STRICTEST VOTER LAWS IN THE COUNTRY FROM GOING INTO EFFECT.

"It is all out attack on the right to vote and voter suppression. the worst that we've seen, in full measure, since Jim Crow."

IT'S THOSE LAWS. AND OTHERS LIKE IT ACROSS THE COUNTRY. THAT HAVE TRIGGERED A LEGAL AND POLITICAL BATTLE.

"Republicans understand the lower the turnout, the fewer voters that vote, the better they do because we're mostly talking about black and hispanic voters, college students. All of those voters that lean democratic."

LAST YEAR, THE REPUBLICAN-LEAD NORTH CAROLINA STATE LEGISLATURE PASSED LAWS THAT REQUIRES VOTERS TO PRESENT PHOTO I-D's, ELIMINATED SAME-DAY VOTER REGISTRATION AND ALSO SHORTENS SO-CALLED 'EARLY VOTING'.

SEVEN OTHER STATES ACROSS THE COUNTRY. TEXAS, ARKANSAS, GEORGIA, INDIANA, KANSAS, MISSISSIPPI AND TENNESSEE. HAVE ALL ENACTED SIMILAR NEW VOTER LAWS.

"Now, most are coming under legal challenges. From civil rights groups and the U-S Justice Department, who, like here in North Carolina, has joined in arguing against the new state laws.

IN APRIL, A FEDERAL JUDGE IN WISCONSIN STRUCK DOWN SIMILAR LAWS IN THAT STATE. SAYING QUOTE:

"It is absolutely clear that Act 23 will prevent more legitimate votes from being cast than fraudulent votes."

A RULING THAT'S GIVING HOPE FOR A VICTORY IN NORTH CAROLINA.

"We have found that the courts are siding with us. they understand that in fact, these laws are making it harder for American's to have a voice in our democracy."

Laurie: You're right. That was my password.

HE DIDN'T SEE ME TYPE IT IN -- SO HOW DID THIS SECURITY RESEARCHER FIGURE OUT MY IPAD PIN NUMBER?

LET'S TAKE A STEP BACK -- YOU'RE AT A COFFEE SHOP, READING THE IPAD… YOU ENTER YOUR PASSWORD AND START BROWSING…. PRETTY BASIC PROTOCOL THESE DAYS.

WELCOME TO A BRAVE NEW WORLD… TEN FEET ACROSS FROM YOU… A HACKER COULD STEAL YOUR PASSWORD USING NEW TECHNOLOGY …

They see the screen, they see your finger, and pretty much your passcode is stolen.

USING GOOGLE GLASS - OR ANY OTHER RECORDING DEVICE, LIKE CELL PHONE VIDEO OR A CAMCORDER - SECURITY RESEARCHER XINWEN FU CAN CRACK YOUR PIN.

HE'S DEVELOPED SOFTWARE THAT CAN BREAK DOWN HAND MOVEMENTS FROM VIDEO. YOU TYPE, HE RECORDS. DOESN'T MATTER IF THERE'S GLARE. DOESN'T EVEN MATTER IF HE CAN'T SEE THE SCREEN.

THE PROCESS IS NOW EASIER BY THE RISE OF WEARABLE TECH, WHICH MAKES IT SIMPLE TO DISCRETELY RECORD HAND MOVEMENTS.

Glass is on your head so people can easily adjust the angle and take the picture.

HERE'S HOW IT WORKS.

If we know the position of the finger then we know the position of the finger on the keyboard, the position you touch is a key so we call that touch point.We can actually match this touch point to a reference keyboard to an actual keyboard and we get your key.

WE PUT IT TO THE TEST USING THE SAME DEVICE XINWEN USED WHEN HE WAS DEVELOPING HIS SOFTWARE: GOOGLE GLASS. WE PUT THEM ON A ROBOT AND THEN A REAL-WORLD ATTACKER. EACH TRIED TO HACK US.

So you have just analyzed the data that you took via Google Glass. You assure me that you didn't see the actual numbers I was typing in. But you say that you have my passcode

: Yes.

: Hit me with it.

HE TOLD ME IT COULD TAKE HIM TWO GUESSES.

You're right. That was my password.

I mean you don't have access to my device so what is that gonna do?

So we only use the passcode as one example to demonstrate the danger. What if you actually used mobile banking to type in your password and access your banking?

So that's very dangerous. We may steal your passwords. Your bank account password.

THE VULNERABILITY, XINWEN SAYS, IS THAT KEYS ARE ALWAYS IN THE SAME PLACE. THERE ARE TOOLS FOR RANDOMIZING THE LOCATION OF KEYS ON A KEYBOARD, AND THAT WOULD MAKE SOMETHING LIKE THIS IMPOSSIBLE. THOSE TOOLS AREN'T WIDESPREAD, BUT XINWEN HOPES EXPOSING THE DANGERS WILL LEAD TO SOLUTIONS.

AMY OSHIER/REPORTING

RUNS:

The care model is to meet people in their comfort zone. Putting medical resources in the neighborhood with people who are sensitive to their culture. In the absence of financial resources and access to care- many women simply go without.

COMBINING CARE WITH DIGNITY- IS ALLOWING MIDWIVES TO DELIVER QUALITY CARE.

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.

HOT AND HUMID WITH AFTERNOON STORMS

We will find ourselves in a rather typical summertime pattern for the upcoming work week. Temperatures will be hot, yet seasonal for early July. Highs rather consistently are expected between 92 and 93 degrees.

With sea breeze interactions today, and for the next several days, you can expect scattered afternoon thunderstorms. Coverage from day to day will vary, yet the usual late afternoon and early evening time frame will be the most likely for that development. Today much of the activity will be from 3pm on through the evening and mainly aimed toward the inland areas.

TROPICAL UPDATE

Weather conditions look generally quiet regarding tropical cyclones across the Atlantic Ocean, Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea. No cyclones are active, and development of any storms is not anticipated in the next three to five days. Return to index of stories...
