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.

Another round of storms today

Another round of afternoon and early evening showers and storms are expected today, compliments of the seabreeze interaction developing from the Gulf of Mexico.

Despite the fact that the Saharan Air Layer, a mass of dry, dusty air moving across the Atlantic will trim back the overall coverage of rain today, we'll still be expecting storms to fire along the I-75 and US 41 corridors later today.

Temperatures look seasonal this afternoon. Highs should range from the upper 80s along the coast to low and mid 90s for the inland and interior ranges of the peninsula.

For the upcoming weekend, a rather typical July weather pattern will be in play. That means highs in the low 90s with a decent opportunity for some late afternoon and early evening showers and storms.

TROPICAL UPDATE

Conditions remain quiet across the Atlantic Ocean, Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea. No tropical cyclones are active and none are anticipated to develop in the next three to five days. Return to index of stories...

OBAMA: SO SUE ME-INTRO


HOUSE REPUBLICANS ARE MOVING FORWARD WITH PLANS TO SUE THE PRESIDENT.

THE WHITE HOUSE HAS CALLED IT A POLITICAL STUNT. WITH PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA ISSUING THE CHALLENGE, "SO SUE ME," LAST WEEK.

ANDREW SPENCER REPORTS THE WHOLE PROCESS SEEMS TO BE MOVING FORWARD WITH HEATED COMMENTS COMING FROM BOTH SIDES. Return to index of stories...


OBAMA: SO SUE ME-PKG


THE LEGAL CHALLENGE FROM HOUSE REPUBLICANS HAS AN IRONIC TWIST: THEIR LAWSUIT ARGUES PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA VIOLATED THE CONSTITUTION BY DELAYING A KEY PROVISION OF OBAMACARE -- A LAW THEY FOUGHT TO REPEAL.

IN A STATEMENT, THURSDAY, HOUSE SPEAKER JOHN BOEHNER SAID, "THE PRESIDENT CHANGED THE HEALTH CARE LAW WITHOUT A VOTE OF CONGRESS, EFFECTIVELY CREATING HIS OWN LAW BY LITERALLY WAIVING THE EMPLOYER MANDATE. THAT'S NOT THE WAY OUR SYSTEM OF GOVERNMENT WAS DESIGNED TO WORK."

PRESIDENT OBAMA HAD A SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT TAKE ON THE LAWSUIT.

"You're going to sue me for doing my job?"

SPEAKING IN AUSTIN, TEXAS, ON THURSDAY, THE PRESIDENT QUOTED "the departed" AS HE AIRED HIS FRUSTRATION WITH REPUBLICANS.

"Sometimes I feel like saying to these guys, 'I'm the guy doing my job. You must be the other guy.'"

"You hear some of them. They're like, 'Sue him. Impeach him.' Really? Really? For what?'"

HE SAID REPUBLICANS DIDN'T SEEM TO MIND WHEN PRESIDENT BUSH ISSUED EXECUTIVE ORDERS.

BOEHNER DEFENDED THE PLAN FOR LEGAL ACTION, EARLIER IN THE DAY.

"Every president does executive orders. Most of them, though, do them within the law. What we're talking about here are places where the places where the president is basically re-writing law to make it fit his own needs."

THE REPUBLICAN-LED HOUSE IS EXPECTED TO VOTE ON A RESOLUTION FOR LEGAL ACTION AT THE END OF THE MONTH.

BABE RUTH 100 YEARS-ON CAM


TODAY MARKS 1-HUNDRED YEARS SINCE LEGENDARY BABE RUTH KICKED OFF HIS CAREER IN MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL.

AND THIS WEEKEND.THE LARGEST COLLECTION OF BABE MEMORABILIA WILL BE UP FOR AUCTION.

FRED SLATE HAS MORE ON THE STORY. Return to index of stories...


BABE RUTH 100 YEARS-PKG


"On Saturday July 12th we have the live event of the 100th anniversary of Babe Ruth official auction at Goldin Auctions.com right here at the Sports Legend Museum at Camden Yards."

HE WAS BORN FEBRUARY 6, 1895 IN PIGTOWN AND THIS WEEKEND AT THE SPORTS LEGEND MUSEUM YOU CAN TAKE PART IN THE LARGEST AUCTION OF BABE RUTH MEMORABILIA ON THE EAST COAST.

"We went to over 10 cities, over 50 to 60 different individuals who've collected this stuff over the years, have consigned to the 100th anniversary auction."

THERE ARE A LOT OF UNIQUE ITEMS TO SEE AND BID ON LIKE HIS ORIGINAL ROOKIE CARD, THE CURSE OF THE BAMBINO CONTRACT WHICH THE RED SOX SOLD RUTH TO THE YANKEES AND THE FIRST BALL EVER TO BE HIT OUT OF THE OLD YANKEE STADIUM.

"A guy named Marshall Hunt of the Daily News said to Babe Ruth "Hey lets take you out to Yankee Stadium, let's test the fences." It was in 1923 two months before the park ever opened, so they went out - they cleaned off the snow from the pitchers mound, they cleaned off the snow from the batters box, you know he threw down his fur coat and he started taking batting practice and the 3rd ball he hit for a homer, the construction worker in the stadium brought it back to him - had him sign and scribe it, the stadium didn't even have a name, he wrote "new Yankee field February 14th, 1923, Babe Ruth."

EVEN THOUGH HE PLAYED IN A DIFFERENT ERA SOME OF THE FANS HERE TODAY AT ORIOLE PARK BELIEVE THE SULTAN OF SWAT COULD FIT RIGHT IN WITH TODAYS ORIOLES FANS.

"I think Babe Ruth today would fit in with the fans more than he would with the players, I think Babe Ruth was a fans player and played up to the fans, back then money wasn't much of an object but I believe he would be more of a fans kind of like Cal Ripken used to spend hours doing autographs and cared more about the fans than a lot of players do today its more of a business."

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.

Another round of storms today

Another round of afternoon and early evening showers and storms are expected today, compliments of the seabreeze interaction developing from the Gulf of Mexico.

Despite the fact that the Saharan Air Layer, a mass of dry, dusty air moving across the Atlantic will trim back the overall coverage of rain today, we'll still be expecting storms to fire along the I-75 and US 41 corridors later today.

Temperatures look seasonal this afternoon. Highs should range from the upper 80s along the coast to low and mid 90s for the inland and interior ranges of the peninsula.

For the upcoming weekend, a rather typical July weather pattern will be in play. That means highs in the low 90s with a decent opportunity for some late afternoon and early evening showers and storms.

TROPICAL UPDATE

Conditions remain quiet across the Atlantic Ocean, Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea. No tropical cyclones are active and none are anticipated to develop in the next three to five days. Return to index of stories...

BLOOD FACIALS-PKG


THE NAME ALONE IS QUESTIONABLE.

THE VAMPIRE FACIAL,OR "BLOOD FACIAL."

"Some people thinks it's gory, I think it's catchy."

SO, WHAT IS IT?

IT'S A FACIAL USING A PATIENTS OWN BLOOD PLATELETS TO HELP HEAL TISSUE AND REGENERATE CELLS.

FIRST, NUMBING CREAM IS APPLIED.

"Patients don't feel any pain from the micro needle."

THEN, BLOOD IS DRAWN AND PUT THROUGH THIS MACHINE,

SEPARATING THE RED AND WHITE BLOOD CELLS FROM THE PLATELETS, TURNING INTO A YELLOWISH COLOR.

NOW COMES THE SKIN PIN.

"It's electric and it has about 10 or 12 little needles that come out of it all at once,"

IN VERTICAL AND HORIZONTAL PASSES, THE SKIN PIN CAUSES PIN-POINT BLEEDING, ALLOWING THE PLASMA RICH PLATELETS, OR P-R-P, TO SEEP INTO THE SKIN.

"I can feel it a little bit, but it's not bad at all."

IT TAKES ABOUT FOUR WEEKS WITHOUT ANTI-INFLAMMATORY DRUGS FOR THE PLATELETS TO SIT ON THE SKIN AND MULTIPLY, THEN COMES THE BENEFITS.

"You can see a reduction in brown spots, reduction in pore size, overall skin brightness, skin health is better after PRP."

SOMETHING TO LOOK FORWARD TO AFTER A DAY OR SO OF REDNESS.

"It's not that I want to look like I'm in my 20's or even in my 40's, it's just that I want to feel and be the best that I can be." Return to index of stories...

HEALTH MATTERS-PKG


AGE IS ONE OF THE GREAT EQUALIZERS- ACROSS EVERY WALK OF LIFE, AS WE GET OLD IT IS NOT UNCOMMON FOR OUR JOINTS TO BREAK DOWN. ARTHRITIS IS BIGGEST CULPRIT.

DR. FLETCHER REYNOLDS/ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON

RUNS:

:22 The cartilage that lines the knee surface wears out. And the end result of that, when the bones are rubbing together, is implant surgery for the knee.

ONE OF THE MOST FREQUENTLY PERFORMED ORTHOPEDIC SURGERIES, IT INVOLVES RESURFACING-OR SMOOTHING THE DAMAGED BONE- THEN CAPPING THE ENDS TO REDUCE FRICTION. MAKING UP FOR THE LOST CARTILAGE.

DR. FLETCHER REYNOLDS/ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON

RUNS:

DEMO

:06 When all the cartilage in the knee starts wearing together, those are the people who would benefit from a total knee replacement.

AMY OSHIER/REPORTING

RUNS:

A smaller subset of patients can benefit from a smaller variation of this procedure. Called a partial or unicompartmental knee replacement, it offers joint relief while leaving much of the knee untouched. It is only suitable in people with limited arthritis.

DR. FLETCHER REYNOLDS/ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON

RUNS:

3:16 Patient selection is the most important thing. 2:19 If the arthritis is isolated to either the inside or the outside part of the knee then partial knee can be considered.

ONCE SURGERY IS COMPLETE, PATIENTS ARE LEFT WITH MORE NATURAL FEEL AND MOVEMENT.

DR. FLETCHER REYNOLDS/ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON

RUNS:

1:45 Some of the ligaments that we sacrifice with knee replacement surgery are retained as well as the other cartilage surfaces.

PERFORMED AS AN OUT-PATIENT PROCEDURE OR WITH A MINIMAL HOSPITAL STAY- THE PARTIAL KNEE REPLACEMENT DELIVERS COMPLETE RESULTS. FOR LEE MEMORIAL HEALTH SYSTEM, I'M AMY OSHIER. Return to index of stories...
