MALASYIA AIRLINES LATEST-VO IN PLASMA, TRX


THIS MORNING WE CONTINUE TO FOLLOW A TERRIBLE TRAGEDY OVERSEAS.

MALYAISAN AIRLINES FLIGHT SHOT DOWN WITH NEARLY 300 PEOPLE ON BOARD.

A U-S OFFICIAL SAYS THE UNITED STATES IS ANALYZING THE TRAJECTORY OF A MISSILE.

TRYING TO DETERMINE WHERE IT CAME FROM AND WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR BRINGING DOWN A PASSENGER JET OVER EASTERN UKRAINE.

THE STATE DEPARTMENT IS STILL TRYING TO CONFIRM IF ANY AMERICANS WERE ONBOARD.

ANDREW SPENCER REPORTS. Return to index of stories...


MALASYIA AIRLINES LATEST-PKG


--REPORTER PKG-AS FOLLOWS--

TODAY, NEARLY THREE-HUNDRED PEOPLE ARE DEAD AFTER A PLANE CRASH IN EASTERN UKRAINE, AND A WOMAN WHO SAYS SHE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE ON THAT FLIGHT IS STILL ALIVE.

".coming to the airport in the taxi, I was just crying. I'm just thinking I feel like I've been given a second chance."

THE F-A-A NOW WARNS U-S AIRLINES TO AVOID THE AIRSPACE OVER EASTERN UKRAINE. U-S OFFICIALS BELIEVE A MISSILE DESTROYED MALAYSIA AIRLINES FLIGHT 17.

"If that is the case, it is an unspeakable crime."

"There is clearly a need a full and transparent international investigation."

".we insist that the perpetrators must swiftly be brought to justice."

RUSSIAN PRESIDENT VLADIMIR PUTIN LED A MOMENT OF SILENCE ON RUSSIAN TELEVISION, BUT PROTESTERS OUTSIDE THE UNITED NATIONS BLAMED HIM FOR THE PLANE'S DESTRUCTION WHILE PUTIN BLAMED THE UKRAINIANS FOR ESCALATING THE CONFLICT.

SOME HOPE THE CATASTROPHIC LOSS OF LIFE MIGHT BE AN OPPORTUNITY FOR A CEASEFIRE BETWEEN RUSSIAN SEPARATISTS IN EASTERN UKRAINE AND THE COUNTRY'S GOVERNMENT. IF NOT, IT COULD CREATE A DEEPER DIVIDE BETWEEN THE EAST AND THE WEST.

"I think the fact that you've had a civilian plane shot down with hundreds of Dutch, German, French citizens may have the effect of galvanizing the European resolve a bit more than had been the case."

OTHERS REFLECT ON THE TRAGEDY ITSELF AT A GROWING MEMORIAL OUTSIDE THE DUTCH EMBASSY IN UKRAINE.

.298 PEOPLE DEAD AMID THE WRECKAGE OF A CIVILIAN PASSENGER JET.

TSA FEES INCREASE-PKG


STARTING MONDAY, THE TRANSPORTATION SECURITY ADMINISTRATION IS RAISING THE FEE IT CHARGES FLYERS.

.MORE THAN DOUBLING WHAT'S ALREADY TACKED ON TO EVERY SINGLE AIRLINE TICKET. GOING FROM $2.50 PER LEG. TO $5.60 WITH NO LIMIT!

.WHICH CAN ADD UP IF YOUR LAYOVER EXCEEDS FOUR HOURS. AND, THEREFORE, BECOMES A SEPARATE LEG OF YOUR TRIP.

"So, in some cases, consumers will be paying 3 to 4 times more in these fees for every flight they book"

THE FEE HIKE WAS MANDATED BY CONGRESS AND WHAT IRKS THE AIRLINES IS THAT MOST OF IT WILL NOT BE SPENT TO IMPROVE TSA OR SECURITY.

BUT RATHER TO REDUCE THE DEFICIT.

AND ACCORDING TO THE POINTS GUY, BRIAN KELLY.ALL YOU CAN DO IS BE MORE CAREFUL IN BOOKING YOUR FLIGHT.

"Generally, if you're flying from smaller airports and the more segments you fly, the more fees you'll be paying."

WHILE ALL AIR TRAVELERS ARE SUBJECT TO THE NEW FEES, THOSE MOST LIKELY TO END UP PAYING MORE ARE THOSE WHO BOOK ROUND-TRIPS WITH LONG STOPOVERS.

LIFEGUARD COMPETITION-PKG


J.P. Atherholt / Clearwater:

"Usually it's a pretty calm beach with not a lot of surf. Today you can see we have a little surf out there which makes it fun for the competition."

Gerry Falconer / Miami Beach:

"Lifeguards on the beach are your frontline of protection and safety so the guys and gals today want to show off and showcase their skills and ability."

ASK 100 LIFEGUARDS WHY THEY RISK THEIR LIVES. AND YOU ARE SURE TO GET 100 REASONS.

S/ Emily Puttick / Lifeguard:23-:25

"I love it. It's the best job I have ever had."

S/ Jennifer Noonan / Ft. Lauderdale:25-:28

"It's very rewarding but it's really is what we are trained for. You do it. You feel good. You know you have saved lives but it's also your job."

SAVING LIVES WAS PART OF TOM HOGAN'S JOB FOR NEARLY THREE DECADES.

Tom Hogan / West Palm Beach

"I have been retired now 28 years. I still compete."

HOGAN TURNS 80 IN A COUPLE OF MONTHS, SO YOU COULD SAY HE'S OUT-LIVED HIS COMPETITION.

S/ Tom Hogan / West Palm Beach:50-:54

"I think it's the fountain of youth out there and it's just beautiful.it's just.it's.There is always a challenge about the ocean."

R/ Anthony Allred / Reporting:54-1:05

"Close to 200 lifeguards came from all Florida to compete in these life saving games. And just about everyone we talked to already has experience in saving lives."

"It's been a lot, a lot of life saving. It's probably been about 12 years of life saving behind my.you know, where I come from."

S/ Eric Jones / Lifeguard 1:10-1:13

"I have probably been on 20-30 rescues easily."

S/ Emily Puttick / Lifeguard 1:13-1:15

"Probably about like 10 this summer.or so."

S/ Alec Zappone / Lifeguard 1:15-1:23

"This season already maybe like 6-7 but, I mean, it's only halfway through the summer so far so it's definitely probably more to come."

AND IF THERE ARE MORE MORE RESCUES TO COME. ORGANIZERS WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT IT'S TRAINING LIKE THIS. THAT HELPS THEM SAVE LIVES.

Gerry Falconer / Lifeguard:

"A lifeguard wants you to come to the beach and enjoy it. But they want you to get home safe."

Mostly sunny and mainly dry conditions are expected across the majority of Southwest Florida this afternoon. Thanks to the influence of some dry air to the north of us, rain chances look fairly minimal into this evening.

Temperatures to finish out the week look warm and seasonal. Highs are expected to reach 93 at Fort Myers, 91 at Naples and 93 at Port Charlotte.

Heading into the weekend, Saturday looks to be mainly dry with rain chances remaining overall isolated in coverage.

HEALTH MATTERS: GOUT AND YOUR GUT-TRX, VO IN PLASM


IN TODAY'S HEALTHCAST WE'RE TALKING ABOUT GOUT.

MORE THAN 8 MILLION AMERICANS SUFFER FROM IT.

AND IF YOU'VE EVER SUFFERED FROM IT. YOU KNOW IT IS *VERY PAINFUL.

IT STEMS FROM A BUILDUP OF URIC ACID BROUGHT ON BY DIET.

IN TODAYS HEALTH MATTERS AMY OSHIER EXPLAINS THE CONNECTION BETWEEN GOUT AND YOUR GUT.

TEASE: SEPARATING FACT FROM FICTION WHEN IT COMES TO GOUT- AHEAD IN OUR HEALTH MATTERS REPORT.

INTRO: IT'S ESTIMATED THAT 8-MILLION AMERICANS SUFFER FROM GOUT- IT'S CONSIDERED BY MANY, THE MOST PAINFUL FORM OF ARTHRITIS. IT STEMS FROM A BUILDUP OF URIC ACID BROUGHT ON BY DIET. IN TODAYS HEALTH MATTERS AMY OSHIER EXPLAINS THE CONNECTION BETWEEN GOUT AND YOUR GUT. Return to index of stories...


HEALTH MATTERS: GOUT AND YOUR GUT-PKG


HISTORICALLY, GOUT WAS CONSIDERED A 'RICH MAN'S DISEASE'. THE PRODUCT OF EXCESS, IT WAS ASSOCIATED WITH INDULGING IN TOO MUCH.

DR. GARY GOFORTH/FAMILY PRACTICE

RUNS:

1*

:18 It's a condition it's been around for ages and ages. We typically think of it as a disease caused by poor eating habits. The classic scenario is somebody that's drinking heavily; eating fatty foods.

TO GET RELIEF FROM CRIPPLING PAIN, SUFFERERS WOULD SOMETIMES PROP THEIR FOOT ON A PILLOW, ADDING TO THE STEREOTYPE. IN REALITY, GOUT HAS SPREAD TO THE COMMON MAN. IT IS ACTUALLY A CASE OF ACUTE ARTHRITIS.

DR. GARY GOFORTH/FAMILY PRACTICE

RUNS:

:32 That causes extreme pain, swelling and redness in joints. The classic scenario the joint at the base of the right toe. Usually it lasts 24-48 hours.

IT IS BROUGHT ON BY A BUILDUP OF URIC ACID WHICH HAS CRYSTALIZED IN THE JOINTS. SOME PEOPLE HAVE A GENETIC PREDISPOSITION, MEDICATION CAN ALSO CAUSE IT. A COMMON SOURCE OF URIC ACID COMES FROM THE FOODS WE EAT: SEAFOOD RICH IN PURINES, MEATS, SUGARY DRINKS AND ALCOHOL. ON THE FLIP SIDE, OTHER FOODS MAY HELP CONTROL IT.

DR. GARY GOFORTH/FAMILY PRACTICE

RUNS:

2:27 We tell people to eat fresh vegetables, eat more dairy products, drink coffee.

1:18 People that eat high amounts of low fat dairy products and drink coffee have lower rates of gout.

AMY OSHIER/REPORTING

RUNS:

One aspect of the long-held belief that gout is rich man's disease, is in part true. While it has no link to wealth- Gout is mostly a man's disease.

DR. GARY GOFORTH/FAMILY PRACTICE

RUNS:

4:35 We see it a whole lot more in men. It can occur in women but is much more common in men. And I usually see them middle aged 30s or 40s.

DESPITE THE MISCONCEPTIONS- THERE IS STILL A LINK BETWEEN GOUT AND YOUR GUT. FOR LEE MEMORIAL HEALTH SYSTEM, I'M AMY OSHIER. Return to index of stories...

HARMFUL HIGH HEELS-SOTVO, TAG


"When the body weight goes to the ball of your foot, the whole skeleton really has to compensate, so the knees and hips jet forward and then your back has to hyper extend backwards. This completely mal aligns not just your foot, but the entire skeleton."

THE AMERICAN PODIATRIC MEDICAL ASSOCIATION RECOMMENDS THAT WOMEN WEAR HEELS NO HIGHER THAN 2 INCHES.

SO THE BEST SOLUTION MAY BE TO WEAR HEELS IN MODERATION AND PACK A PAIR OF FLATS.

AN INTERESTING FACT.

THE AVERAGE HIGH HEEL SIZE TODAY IS 6 TO 7 INCHES TALL.
