Tracking Another Hot & Stormy Day

Another round of showers and storms will be likely later this afternoon. Sunshine will prevail for large portion of the day but once the sea breeze gets going in the afternoon, clouds will thicken up.

Showers start inland and work their way, very slowly, westward towards the coastline by early evening. Some heavy rains will be possible with any given storm.

Temperatures today will be hot yet again. Low 90s will be the theme for Tuesday in most areas. Heat Indices today will reach into the upper 90s.

Lows tonight drop down to near normal in the mid 70s.

Tropical Update

Tropical Depression Two was last located about 1,000 miles east of the Lesser Antilles with maximum sustained winds of 35mph. Forecast suggest this will weaken in coming days and drop to a remnant low by Thursday. Return to index of stories...

MH17 UPDATE-TRX INTRO


THE INVESTIGATION INTO MALAYSIA AIRLINES FLIGHT-17 TAKES A CRTICAL STEP.

REBELS WHO CONTROL THAT PART OF UKRAINE HAVE HANDED OVER THE FLIGHT DATA AND VOICE RECORDERS.

THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY STILL HAS A LOT OF QUESTIONS ABOUT *HOW THE PLANE CAME DOWN.

HERE'S ANDREW SPENCER. Return to index of stories...


MH17 UPDATE-PKG


INVESTIGATORS WILL ANALYZE THE FLIGHT RECORDERS FROM M-H-17 TO GET A BETTER IDEA OF WHAT HAPPENED TO THE PLANE.

PRO-RUSSIAN REBELS GAVE THE RECORDERS TO MALAYSIAN OFFICIALS ON TUESDAY -- DAYS AFTER THE CRASH THAT KILLED NEARLY 300 PEOPLE.

AS TO WHETHER THE BLACK BOXES MIGHT HAVE BEEN TAMPERED WITH: EXPERTS SAY THAT IS HIGHLY UNLIKELY.

"You can't go in and fool around with the data and move data points around. These are solid, secure devices. If there was any kind of attempt to alter them, investigators would know immediately."

.BUT IF THE PLANE WAS INDEED SHOT DOWN, AS THE U.S. GOVERNMENT CLAIMS, THE FLIGHT DATA AND VOICE RECORDERS ALONE WON'T SHOW WHO WAS RESPONSIBLE.

THE U-S AMBASSADOR TO THE UNITED NATIONS SAYS THAT PART OF THE INVESTIGATION IS BEING OBSTRUCTED.

".not everyone has been supporting a real investigation into this crime. If they were, international experts would have had unimpeded access to the crime scene and all of the wreckage would have been left where it had fallen."

AS REBELS CONTINUE TO DENY RESPONSIBILITY, A MAN WHOSE GRANDSON DIED ON FLIGHT 17 BLAMES THEM, BLAMES RUSSIA, AND BLAMES UKRAINE.

"I am very angry about the whole situation, and I'm really not only angry with the rebellion club, but also with the Ukraine government who had been too weak after three months not to be able to silence the rebellion."

AFTER BEING LEFT TO THE ELEMENTS FOR DAYS, THE BODIES OF THE DEAD WERE FINALLY LOADED ONTO A TRAIN AND SHIPPED OUT OF DONETSK. DUTCH INSPECTORS SAID THEY WERE "MORE OR LESS" SATISFIED WITH HOW THOSE REMAINS WERE BEING STORED.

TV SHOW OITNB PROMPTS JAIL UNIFORM CHANGE-PKG


ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK MAY BE A TELEVISION HIT BUT YOU WON'T FIND SAGINAW COUNTY SHERIFF WILLIAM FEDERSPIEL BINGE-WATCHING THE PRISON DRAMA.

"I've never watched a full episode, I've got my own reality show here."

FEDERSPIEL SAYS SPENDING TIME BEHIND BARS, NO LAUGHING MATTER.

"I don't want television to bleed over into real life."

THAT'S WHY FEDERSPIEL'S SWAPPING THE ORANGE JAIL JUMPSUITS FOR BLACK AND WHITE STRIPES.

"It doesn't have a connotation of being cool nor should it be."

FEDERSPIEL SAYS WHILE ORANGE MAY BE IN, HE DOESN'T WANT HIS INMATES GETTING THE WRONG IMPRESSION.

"No, and until there's a new show that black and white horizontal stripes is the new black, I'm going to this look."

"I think orange is becoming a little popular. I agree with what he's doing."

BUT PAROLEE MICHAEL MCGINNIS NOT HAPPY WITH THE CHANGE IN WARDROBE.

"I just got out of prison and that's what they made us wear."

MCGINNIS SAYS THE NEW COLORS DEMEANING FOR INMATES.

"They got us in full body jumpsuits. What's the point in putting us in black and white?"

FRESH OUT OF COLLEGE GAVIN PERKO IS READY TO GRADUATE TO A BETTER DIET.

GAVIN PERKO/TRIES TO EAT HEALTHY

RUNS:

:51 Just to eat healthier, instead of eating fast food all the time. Grocery shopping now that I'm older.

HE PAYS MORE ATTENTION TO PACKAGES- PICKING ITEMS LIKE POPCORN CHIPS OVER SALTY SNACK COUNTERPARTS. LIKE MANY OF US, GAVIN IS SWAYED BY HEALTH CLAIMS.

GAVIN PERKO/TRIES TO EAT HEALTHY

RUNS:

1:20 All the naturals, the organic, fat-free, low sugar. All those things kind of catch my eye.

JEANNE STRUVE/REGISTERED DIETITIAN

RUNS:

:27 People have a tendency to read the front of the package, which is all marketing, and forget to turn over and actually look at what's mandated by the Food & Drug Administration, which is the nutrition facts label.

AS A REGISTERED DIETITIAN, JEANNE STRUVE IS WISE TO THE WORK THAT GOES INTO LABELING.

JEANNE STRUVE/REGISTERED DIETITIAN

RUNS:

5:24 Trying to figure out what makes a consumer buy something. And when you can tag it 'no cholesterol' or 'no fat' or 'no sugar' those are things that people go 'oh well, it must be healthy.'

AMY OSHIER/REPORTING

RUNS:

They are called health buzz words- and studies show they work. People purchase on the perception of wholesome qualities. It boils down to buyer beware. To increase your food smarts, we have tips to help you read between the lines.

A COMMON PRACTICE IS TO HIDE SUGARS ON THE NUTRITION LABEL, BY BREAKING IT INTO SEVERAL INGREDIENTS.

JEANNE STRUVE/REGISTERED DIETITIAN

RUNS:

7:00 Look for the high fructose corn syrup or the dextrose or the sucrose. They can call it syrup, they can call it brown sugar. What the food manufacturers will do, is put in so much sugar, but they put it in in different names so that they can stagger it throughout the ingredients so it doesn't show up as the number one ingredient.

MANUFACTURERS MAY COUNT ON CONFUSING SHOPPERS WHO AREN'T PREPARED TO DO MATH IN THE GROCERY ISLE.

JEANNE STRUVE/REGISTERED DIETITIAN

RUNS:

1:22 Every 4 grams of sugar equals one tsp of sugar. So for example this product has 17 grams of sugar that would be the equivalent of 4 tsps.

LASTLY, DON'T BE FOOLED BY THE COLOR OF YOUR BREAD.

JEANNE STRUVE/REGISTERED DIETITIAN

RUNS:

11:28 Manufacturers a lot of times just add some caramel coloring, make it brown, and people assume that it's a whole grain. 11:55 Look for the number: 100% whole wheat, 100% whole grain.

TASTY TIDBITS TO INCREASE YOUR FOOD IQ.

GAVIN PERKO/TRIES TO EAT HEALTHY

RUNS:

1:35 When I see All Natural or Low Fat, I would assume that they would be healthier for you.
