Happy Monday - will start off dry and sunny through the first of the day. Later this afternoon showers and storms will start blossoming across the urban corridor. Like any other day some of the isoalted storms will float towards the coastline and impact the evening commute.

Highs today will be cooler than weekend but still hot. Area wide, low 90s will be expected and feeling like the upper 90s.

Overnight, we start to dry out and clouds thin out. Mid to low 70s will be the common trend overnight and for the next few days.

Tuesday is on repeat. Highs in the low 90s with showers and storms in the afternoon/early evening.

Tropical Tracker

The National Hurricane Center is keeping an eye on a broad area of low pressure producing diorgonized storms about 1000 miles west-southwest of the Cape Verde Island. This low will continue to push off towards the west-northwest in coming days. Odds of devlopment right now are less than 10% in the next 48 hours.

PLANE CRASH EVIDENCE-VO IN PLASMA


BUILDING A CASE.

SECRETARY OF STATE JOHN KERRY REPORTS THERE'S NO SHORTAGE OF EVIDENCE THAT PRO-RUSSIAN REBELS SHOT DOWN MALAYSIA AIRLINES FLIGHT 17.

KERRY STATES THERE'S VIDEO OF A LAUNCHER WITH ONE SURFACE-TO-AIR MISSILE, MISSING.

BARBARA STARR REPORTS. Return to index of stories...


PLANE CRASH EVIDENCE-PKG


UNKNOWN TO THE WORLD, PRO-RUSSIAN REBELS SECRETLY MOVED A HEAVY ARSENAL OF WEAPONS INTO PLACE DAYS AGO -- WEAPONS THAT WOULD LEAD TO THE SHOOTDOWN OF MALAYSIA AIRLINES FLIGHT 17 ACCORDING TO A US INTELLIGENCE ANALYSIS.

"There was a convoy several weeks ago, about 150 vehicles, with armed personnel carrier, multiple rocket launchers, tanks, artillery, all of which crossed over from Russia into the eastern part of Ukraine, and was turned over to the separatists."

ON THURSDAY WITHIN HOURS OF THE PLANE DROPPING OFF RADAR.THE US SUSPECTED A SHOOT DOWN.

THE DOSSIER TO PROVE IT, WAS ASSEMBLED BY US MILITARY AND INTELLIGENCE ANALYSTS. SCOURING HIGHLY CLASSIFIED DATA FROM SPY SATELLITES, RADARS AND PHONE INTERCEPTS..

THEY NARROWED IN ON TWO PIECES OF CRITICAL INFORMATION DETECTED BY US SATELLITE AND RADAR FEEDS.

FIRST, A SURFACE TO AIR MISSILE SYSTEM HAD BEEN TURNED ON IN A SEPARATIST CONTROLLED AREA IN EASTERN UKRAINE..

A MOMENT LATER A US SATELLITE CAPTURED THE HEAT SIGNATURE OF A MID AIR EXPLOSION.

"We know that within hours of this event, this particular system passed through two towns right in the vicinity of the shootdown. We know because we observed it by imagery that at the moment of the shootdown, we detected a launch from that area, and our trajectory shows that it went to the aircraft.

THE CONCLUSION: A RUSSIAN SUPPLIED BUK SURFACE TO AIR MISSILE LAUNCHER SHOT DOWN THE FLIGHT.

THE EVIDENCE: ACCORDING TO THE ANALYSIS POSTED BY THE STATE DEPARTMENT "INTERCEPTS OF SEPARATIST COMMUNICATIONS POSTED ON YOUTUBE BY THE UKRAINIAN GOVERNMENT INDICATE THE SEPARATISTS WERE IN POSSESSION OF A SA-11 SYSTEM AS EARLY AS MONDAY JULY 14TH."

SA-11 THE WESTERN NAME FOR THE BUK.

US INTELLIGENCE MATCHED THOSE VOICES TO OTHER SEPARATIST RECORDINGS.

THE REBELS CLAIMED TO HAVE SHOT DOWN A MILITARY TRANSPORT PLANE. WHEN IT BECAME CLEAR IT WAS A PASSENGER JET.SOCIAL MEDIA POSTS WERE QUICKLY DELETED.

THEN THERE WAS THIS: THIS: A QUICK SHOT OF WHAT IS BELIEVED THE BUK MISSILE LAUNCHER ON ITS WAY BACK TO RUSSIA.

GAZA LATEST-PKG


There's been heavy fighting in that northern suburb of Gaza, Shijaiyah, where there was heavy fighting yesterday.

It's such an intense area, an urban area, very built up, tall buildings, narrow streets and that's where Israel is moving slowly through with tanks and armored personnel carriers.

The Palestinians fighting at very close range with rockets, so there's a great of devastation in the area and casualties on both sides.

Earlier in the day, Palestinian gunmen managed to go through a tunnel and come out inside Israel.

There they split into two groups.

The Israelis say they were heading for two Israeli settlements in the area but they were spotted by the Israelis and one rocket hit one of the groups.

Israeli troops approached the other Palestinian group of gunmen, there was a gunfight on the ground.

The Israelis say they killed ten Palestinians, there were Israeli casualties, too.

Now the elephant in the room is earlier in the day Hamas announced they had captured an Israeli soldiers who they caught in that heavy fighting in Shijaiyah that I mentioned earlier.

REPORTER CLOSE:

NOW WE'RE WAITING TO HEAR WHETHER IT'S TRUE AND IF SO, WHETHER HE'S DEAD OR ALIVE.

HEALTH MATTERS-PKG


:24 As you can tell he's a really outgoing, fun-loving boy…

BUT SOMETHING CHANGED. AND 10 YEAR OLD WILLIAM EINBINDER BECAME…RESTLESS.

WILLIAM EINBINDER/HAS SLEEP APNEA

RUNS:

:21 I would wake up and go I don't want to go to school, I'm too tired.

LYNN EINBINDER/MOM

RUNS:

:35 He would come home from school, he was tired, he was lethargic, he would sometimes take a nap, he lost interest in some of the things that he normally did.

AN OVERNIGHT SLEEP STUDY REVEALED SOMETHING THEY NEVER IMAGINED, IN THEIR WILDEST DREAMS.

LYNN EINBINDER/MOM

RUNS:

1:37 After they analyzed the test, I guess they found evidence that he was stopping breathing.

IT'S THE SCARIEST ASPECT OF SLEEP APNEA. IN THE MOST COMMON FORM- OBSTRUCTIVE APNEA, THE AIRWAY GETS BLOCKED OR CLOSES AND DISRUPTS BREATHING. IN CHILDREN THE AFFECTS CAN ALSO BE FELT IN THE DAY TIME.

DR. JOSE COLON/SLEEP SPECIALIST

RUNS:

2:17 Short-term effects, immediate effects of an untreated sleep apnea could be concentration issues, so a long-term effect could be learning issues.

AMY OSHIER/REPORTING

RUNS:

The cumulative burden on the body from a lack of oxygen may carry staggering consequences. Studies find if not treated children may face higher risk of high blood pressure, heart problems, inflammatory issues, depression and obesity.

AFTER CONSIDERING THE OPTIONS, WILLIAM'S FAMILY WENT WITH A CPAP MASK- WHICH STANDS FOR CONTINUOUS POSITIVE AIRWAY PRESSURE.

DR. JOSE COLON/SLEEP SPECIALIST

RUNS:

8:08 It takes that air around us and it generates a pressure that then goes through the mask and it opens up your airway.

WEARING THE MASK TO SLEEP DOESN'T BOTHER WILLIAM A BIT…HE'S NOW BACK IN FULL FORM.

WILLIAM EINBINDER/HAS SLEEP APNEA

RUNS:

2:13 Some people think that it sounds like Darth Vader…

THAT'S WHEN THE EINBINDER'S KNEW THEIR SON WAS OKAY.

LYNN EINBINDER/MOM

RUNS:

5:30 That's one reason why I'm happy to talk about it. I hope that other parents hear this.

AND GET HELP INSTEAD OF LOSING SLEEP. FOR LEE MEMORIAL HEALTH SYSTEM, I'M AMY OSHIER. Return to index of stories...

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.

Happy Monday - will start off dry and sunny through the first of the day. Later this afternoon showers and storms will start blossoming across the urban corridor. Like any other day some of the isoalted storms will float towards the coastline and impact the evening commute.

Highs today will be cooler than weekend but still hot. Area wide, low 90s will be expected and feeling like the upper 90s.

Overnight, we start to dry out and clouds thin out. Mid to low 70s will be the common trend overnight and for the next few days.

Tuesday is on repeat. Highs in the low 90s with showers and storms in the afternoon/early evening.

Tropical Tracker

The National Hurricane Center is keeping an eye on a broad area of low pressure producing diorgonized storms about 1000 miles west-southwest of the Cape Verde Island. This low will continue to push off towards the west-northwest in coming days. Odds of devlopment right now are less than 10% in the next 48 hours.

Other than that, things are quiet elsewhere. Return to index of stories...

LIFE LOGGING-VO IN PLASMA


THERE'S A GROWING TREND OF PEOPLE USING WEARABLE CAMERAS TO CAPTURE MOMENTS THROUGHOUT THEIR DAY.

BUT IS IT COOL?

OR CREEPY?

BOB HANSEN SHOWS US HOW TECHNOLOGY IS GIVING US A WHOLE NEW HOBBY. Return to index of stories...


LIFE LOGGING-PKG


IT'S AN AFTERNOON AT BALBOA PARK AND EVERYWHERE I GO I'M TAKING PICTURES. BUT NOT WITH THE CAMERA AROUND MY SHOULDER… BUT WITH THE SMALL BLACK CAMERA HANGING ON MY FRONT POCKET.

"it doesn't bother me. if you're in public you have to accept that people can take pictures of you."

"i think it can be kind of creepy."

"if you want to take a picture, get your camera and take a picture."

"every second this wearable camera from lyfeshot snaps a digital image. once you turn it on, you can forget about it. as it takes picture after picture, thousands of individual shots every hour."

IT COULD BE OF PEOPLE AT THE PARK… PEOPLE YOU WORK WITH… PEOPLE IN THE STORE… PEOPLE AT THE FAIR… IT DOESN'T MATTER… EVERY SECOND ANOTHER PICTURE IS TAKEN, AND THEN STREAMED TOGETHER INTO A TIME LAPSE DIARY OF YOUR DAY.

"categorizing and logging all the seemingly insignificant events in your life."

BUT WHILE IT'S YOUR LIFE… SINCE YOU'RE WEARING THE CAMERA… YOU'RE ACTUALLY TAKING PICTURE OF EVERYONE BUT YOU… PEOPLE YOU COME ACROSS IN THE COURSE OF YOUR DAY… WHETHER IT'S IN A PUBLIC SETTING OR A PRIVATE ONE.

"yeah i think it's a little weird, but it's a free country right?"

"even though you're out in public you don't want everybody to see your picture all the time."

"it invades people's privacy."

BUT DOES A SMALL CAMERA CONSTANTLY TAKING PICTURES IN PUBLIC REALLY INVADE ANYONE'S PRIVACY? IT CERTAINLY BECOMES A PROBLEM WHEN CAPTURING IMAGES IN PRIVATE SPACES LIKE HOMES, BUSINESSES AND BATHROOMS OR WHEN POINTING AT PROTECTED INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY LIKE MOVIES OR PLAYS.

"if you're pointing a camera at someone, they can say "please don't take my picture." here they don't even know your picture is being taken and unfortunately there really is nothing they can do about it."

KIM GOUGH WITH SAN DIEGO'S PRIVACY RIGHTS CLEARINGHOUSE IS CONCERNED THAT CAMERAS USED FOR FUN ARE ALSO PRYING INTO PEOPLE'S LIVES… ESPECIALLY WHEN A STREAM OF IMAGES LIKE THIS ARE SHARED ON SOCIAL NETWORKING SITES.

"that to me is an invasion that is beyond a level that i don't think we can all quite comprehend what the ramifications will be."

BUT WHILE PEOPLE DEBATE… THE PICTURES ARE STILL BE TAKEN… OUR LIVES CAPTURED IN A SERIES OF TIME LAPSE PHOTOGRAPHS WHETHER WE LIKE IT OR NOT.

"even though you're out in public you don't want everybody to see your picture all the time."

"it may not be ethical but there's not a whole lot we can do about it." Return to index of stories...
