CONGRESS.

DISADVANTAGE OF MALE ATTACKERS.

THE PIECE OF MIND THAT SHE

HAS KNOWING SHE HAS A SCARY

LOOKING GUN GIVES HER MORE

COURAGE WHEN SHE IS FIGHTING

HARDENED VIOLENT CRIMINALS.

ONE EXPERT STRESSED

BACKGROUND CHECKS AND BANS ON

GUNS ONLY SOLVE PART OF THE

PROBLEM.

THE LONG-TERM SOLUTION IS NOT

ABOUT BACKGROUND CHECKS, IT IS

ABOUT WHAT ARE THESE PEOPLE ON

THE STREETS IN THE FIRST PLACE?

ALL OF THESE KILLERS COULD HAVE

BEEN CIVILLY COMMITTED UNDER THE

CIVIL COMMITMENT LAWS WE HAD

SEVERAL DECADES AGO.

OUT MILITARY ASSAULTS ON THE

ARMIES OF MALI, EJERE AND

THIS IS THE AFTER MATH FROM

ONE OF THOSE DEADLY RAIDS

AGAINST AN ARMY PATROL FROM

NIGER.

AQIM IS SEEN.

YOU CAN CLEARLY SEE THE PILE

OF MILITARY HARDWARE, BOTH GUNS,

AMMUNITION AND DESERT GEAR.

THIS AL-QAEDA JIHADIST WAS

BEHIND THE 2009 MURDER OF

BRITISH HOSTAGE.

THEY USE MONEY FROM KIDNAPPINGS

AND DRUG SOMETHING LG TO FUND

OPERATIONS.

EQIM HAS AN EXTENSIVE NETWORK

IN WESTERN EUROPE.

EFFORTS TO ATTACK WESTERN

TARGETS.

A REPORT SAYING LEBANESE

MILITANT GROUP HEZBOLLAH AND

IRAN'S CUDS FORCE ARE A GROWING

THREAT.

FROM MAY 2011-JULY 2012, THE TWO

GROUPS PLOTTED 20 TERROR

ATTACKS.

ONLY ONE ATTACK SUCCEED.

THE GROUPS ARE LEARNING FROM

THEIR MISTAKES AND IMPROVING

EFFECTIVENESS.

ISRAEL'S AIR FORCE ATTACKED A

TARGET ALONG THE SYRIAN-LEBANESE

BORDER OVERNIGHT.

ISRAELI TV SAID THE CONVOY MIGHT

HAVE BEEN MOVING ANTIAIRCRAFT

FROM SYRIA TO LEBANON.

THEY HAVE WARNED THEY WOULD MOVE

THE CHEMICAL WEAPONS.

ISRAEL IS DECLINING TO COMMENT

ON THE REPORT.

THEY WARNED THEY WOULD INTERVENE

IF SYRIA LOST CONTROL OF

CHEMICAL WEAPONS.

EGYPT'S LEADER IS CALLING FOR

NATIONAL DIALOGUE.

ANOTHER ROUND OF CLASHES THE

CAIRO IS PROMPTING CONCERN THE

COUNTRY IS ON THE BRINK OF CIVIL

WAR.

PROTESTERS FOUGHT IN THE HEART

OF THE CAPITAL FOR THE SEVENTH

DAY.

THE EGYPTIANS WANT TO OUST

PRESIDENT MORSI.

MEANWHILE PRESIDENT MORSI'S

ADMINISTRATION CONTINUES TO AIR

THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD'S VIEWS

ON JEWS.

HITLER'S MURDER OF SIX MILLION

JEWS WAS A FABRY FABRICATION BY

THE WESTERN CIVILIZATION.

THE U.S. MADE UP THE HOLOCAUST

TO MOVE THE JEWS TO UNITED

STATES.

HOW THE FASHION INDUSTRY IS

HELPING VICTIMS OF SEX INDUSTRY.

INTERVARSITY CHRISTIAN

FELLOWSHIP IS ASKING FOR PRAYER

AFTER THEY REMOVED ONE OF ITS

CHAPTERS.

THE UNIVERSITY DE-RECOGNIZED

ASIAN CHAPTER BECAUSE THEY

REFUSE TO ALLOW GAYS AND

LESBIANS TO LEAD.

THE MARTINEZ RULING SAYS PUBLIC

COLLEGES CAN ENFORCE WITHOUT

VIOLATING THE FIRST AMENDMENT IF

THEY APPLY THE POLICY TO ALL

CAMPUS GROUPS.

TENNESSEE'S VANDERBILT

UNIVERSITY IS FORCING OTHER

CHRISTIAN GROUPS OFF CAMPUS.

CBN NEWS HAS ASKED THEM TO

CONFIRM BUT SO FAR HAS NOT

RECEIVED A RESPONSE. IN

SOME PARTS OF THE WORLD FAMILIES

HAVE BEEN KNOWN TO SELL THEIR

DAUGHTERS TO SEX TRAFFICKERS

BECAUSE THEY CAN'T AFFORD TO PAY

THEM.

A YOUNG GIRL HAS BEEN BOUGHT FOR

$19 AND SOLD FOR $500.

THEY GIVE THEM LIFE SKILLS TO

RE-ENTER SOCIETY AND GETTING A

BIG BOOST FROM A FASHION

DESIGNER, KATY MARTINEZ.

SHE IS HERE WITH US NOW,

WELCOME, KATIE.

IT IS A PLEASURE TO BE HERE.

HOW DID YOU GET INVOLVED IN

THE RESCUE PROJECT?

I WAS TALKING WITH STUDENTS.

THE SEWING BUSINESS IS SOMETHING

THEY COULD USE TO SEW AND GIVE

EMPLOYMENT.

YOU STARTED YOUR OWN COMPANY

ELEGANT TEES.

TALK ABOUT HOW THAT CAME

TOGETHER?

THAT WAS A GOD THING, REALLY.

I HAD THIS VISION TO FIGHT SEX

TRAFFICKING THROUGH IT.

WHEN I HEARD ABOUT THE PROJECT,

WE REALIZED WE HAD A LOT OF

SIMILAR GOALS.

WE PARTNERED WITH THEM.

NOW WE ARE ABLE TO GET THE

GIRLS.

TAKE ME FROM START TO FINISH,

HOW ARE YOU ABLE TO GIVE THEM

JOBS?

I DESIGNED THE SAMPLES,

CREATED A WHOLE COLLECTION.

I WORK WITH THE SEWING TEACHER

TO SHOW THEM HOW TO SEW.

WE COMMUNICATE BY SKYPE.

I SEND THE FABRIC, THEY SEW IT,

AND THEY SEND IT BACK AND WE

SELL IT ONLINE.

HOW ARE YOU HELPING THEM

BEGIN AGAIN?

NEPALI RESCUE PROJECT DOES A

GOOD JOB RESTORING THEM.

THEY NEED TO BE ABLE TO WORK AND

SUPPORT THEMSELVES.

BY GIVING THEM EMPLOYMENT, THEY

ARE ABLE TO GET A SENSE OF

DIGNITY AND TO GAIN RESPECT AND

LIVE A BETTER LIFE.

EVEN THE NEPALI IS GETTING ON

BOARD.

THERE IS SO MUCH FAVOR.

A LOT OF TIMES THE GIRLS WILL BE

STOLEN.

THE PROJECT HAS ALL OF THESE

FLOATER STATIONS MONITORING.

IF THEY SEE ANYTHING THAT LOOKS

SUSPICIOUS, THEY TAKE THE GIRLS

THAT SEPARATES THEM FROM THE

TRAFFICKER.

THEY RESCUE 20,000 GIRLS A YEAR.

WOW.

KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK, THANKS

AGAIN, KATY MARTINEZ.

THANKS.

UP NEXT, THE DREADED FLU

TAKING A HUGE TOLL ON AMERICANS

THIS WINTER.

NOW THERE IS A NEW WEAPON FOR

FIGHTING THIS NASTY VIRUS.

AMERICANS ARE FACING THE

WORST FLU SEASON AND PEAKING

RIGHT NOW.

DEATHS RUNNING INTO THE

THOUSANDS INCLUDING 37 CHILDREN.

HEALTH REPORTER LORIE JOHNSON

EXPLAINS THE BEST WAYS TO GET IT

OUT OF YOUR HOME.

THIS YEAR THE FLU SEASON HIT

EARLY AND WILL LAST UNTIL APRIL.

ACCORDING TO THE CDC, THE BEST

PREVENTION IS A FLU SHOT AND NOT

TOO LATE TO GET ONE.

THE SHOT WON'T GIVE YOU A FLU

BECAUSE THE VIRUS DIES DURING

THE MANUFACTURING PROCESS.

IT TAKES TWO WEEKS FOR THE

VACCINE TO FULLY PROTECT YOU SO

YOU COULD STILL GET THE FLU

DURING THAT TIME.

THAT SHOT MAY NOT STOP EACH

DIFFERENT FLU STRAIN.

THIS YEAR'S VACCINE IS 60%

EFFECTIVE WITH THE VARIOUS TYPES

CIRCULATING.

THE VACCINE REQUIRES A LONG

INCUBATION PROCESS.

THEY MUST PREDICT WHICH STRAINS

MONTHS BEFORE THE NEXT FLU

SEASON.

FDA JUST APPROVED A NEW VACCINE

AND THEREFORE WILL BE A BETTER

MATCH IT IS CALLED FLU BLOCK.

ACCORDING TO THE FDA, FLU BLOCK

PROMISES FASTER START UP IN THE

EVENT OF A PANDEMIC.

IT WILL ONLY PROTECT AGAINST

THREE STRAINS OF THE FLU.

THAT COULD BE TEMPORARY.

SCIENTISTS ARE WORKING ON

ANOTHER TYPE OF VACCINE NOT YET

APPROVED THAT WOULD OFFER ALMOST

TOTAL FLU PROTECTION.

WHAT INVESTIGATORS HAVE BEEN

DOING OVER THE LAST SEVERAL

YEARS IS TO CREATE A VACCINE

THAT WOULD INDUCE AN IMMUNE

RESPONSE AGAINST INFLUENZA THAT

WOULD CROSS PROTECT AGAINST ALL

OF THE DIFFERENT VARIANTS THAT

WOULD EMERGE.

ONCE THAT DRIFT AND THOSE THAT

DRAMATICALLY CHANGE RARELY EVERY

FEW TIMES A CENTURY AS WE SEE

WITH PANDEMICS.

DOCTORS COUNT THE VACCINE,

TOPPING THE LIST IS WASHING YOUR

HANDS.

GET A GOOD LATHER GOING AND KEEP

IT GOING 20 SECONDS.

ABOUT AS LONG AS IT TAKES TO

SING THE HAPPY BIRTHDAY SONG

TWICE.

RINSE WELL AND DRY WITH A CLEAN

TOWEL.

IF THERE IS NO SOAP AND WATER

HANDY, HAND SANITIZERS ARE A

GOOD SUBSTITUTE.

60% ALCOHOL AND RUB UNTIL YOUR

HANDS ARE DRY.

YOUR HANDS AREN'T THE ONLY

CULPRIT.

THE FLU VIRUS CAN LIVE ON A FLAT

SURFACE UP TO TWO DAYS,

DOORKNOBS, REMOTE CONTROLS,

REFRIGERATOR HANDLES.

YOU HAVE TO HAVE A STRONG IMMUNE

SYSTEM.

THAT REQUIRES DISCIPLINE AND

REMEMBERING YOUR DO'S AND DON'T.

DO GUEST AT LEAST EIGHT HOURS OF

SLEEP.

DRINK LOTS OF WATER EAT

NUTRITIOUS FOODS, TAKE

SUPPLEMENTS INCLUDING FISH OIL,

VITAMIN C AND D AND TRY THE

NATURAL ANTIBIOTIC VIRGIN

COCONUT OIL, ONE TABLESPOON IN

THE MORNING AND NIGHT.

IF YOU ARE ASSAULTED WITH THE

VIRUS, YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM CAN

CONCENTRATE ON THE VIRUS.

IT DOESN'T HAVE TO CONCENTRATE

ON 27 OTHER VIRUS.

DON'T EAT FOOD WITH A LOT OF

SUGAR AND TRANS FATS THEY CAN

WEAKEN YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM.

STRESS WILL DO THAT.

KEEP IT LOW WITH PRAYER AND

EXERCISE.

SO AVOID THE FLU BY GETTING THE

VACCINE, KEEPING YOURSELF AND

YOUR ENVIRONMENT CLEAN AND YOUR

BODIES STRONG.

LORIE JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

GOOD ADVISE, THERE.

UP NEXT, MEET 105-YEAR-OLD

VOLUNTEER STILL GIVING BACK TO

THE COMMUNITY.

HERE IS SOMETHING YOU DON'T

HEAR EVERYDAY, A CALIFORNIA

WOMAN CELEBRATES 105TH BIRTHDAY.

HER WISH THIS YEAR IS THAT THE

WORLD WOULD BE INSPIRED TO MAKE

A DIFFERENCE.

AND AT 105 EDITH HAS BEEN

VOLUNTEERING AT DIRECT

INTERNATIONAL FOR THE LAST 40

YEARS, THEY PROVIDE MEDICAL

SUPPLIES TO PATIENTS IN NEEDS

ALL OVER THE WORLD.

MY HUSBAND RETIRED.

I WAS 67 AT THE TIME.

WE DECIDED WE WOULD LIKE TO DO

VOLUNTEER WORK IN ANOTHER

COUNTRY.

THEY SENT US TO TAIWAN.

SHE LOOKS REALLY GREAT.

SHARP AS A TACK.

EDITH ISN'T TRAVELING THE

WORLD.

SHE WRITES THANK YOU LETTERS AND

HER VOLUNTEER WORK IS THE THING

SHE LIKES MOST.

THEY SAY THAT IS THE MOST

FULFILLING THING YOU CAN DO IS

BETTER TO GIVE THAN RECEIVE.

THAT IS ALL FOR THIS EDITION

OF "NEWSWATCH."

WE'LL SEE YOU NEXT
