CBN NewsWatch: February 10, 2015: Pilot's burning death a turning point for Jordan; Boston: enough snow to fill a stadium '90 times'; Obama to ask Congress for war powers to fight ISIS; and more. Read Transcript


THANKS FOR JOINING US FOR

CBN "NEWSWATCH."

I'M EFREM GRAHAM.

NEW ENGLAND IS BEARING DOWN

TODAY, FACING YET ANOTHER

WINTER STORM WARNING.

THE SERIES OF STORMS IN THE

LAST MONTH HAS DUMPED MORE

THAN 60 INCHES OF SNOW IN

BOSTON.

LEAVING THE CITY TO TRY TO

FIGURE OUT EXACTLY WHERE TO

PUT IT.

OUR HEATHER SELLS HAS MORE.

Heather: ONCE AGAIN, A

WINTER STORM SYSTEM IS

TARGETING BOSTON.

FORECASTERS PREDICT 12 TO

16 INCHES BY THE END OF

TODAY.

THE PROBLEM IS NOT THE STORM

ITSELF, BUT THAT IT'S COMING

ON THE HEELS OF TO OTHERS.

A RECORD-BREAKING FIVE FEET

HAS FALLEN IN THE LAST

MONTH.

THIS IS PRETTY MUCH

UNPRECEDENTED.

Heather: THEY'RE

MELTING SNOW IN BOSTON,

TRYING TO GET RID OF IT ALL,

AND EVEN CONSIDER DUMPING IT

INTO BOSTON HARBOR.

IT IS ENOUGH SNOW TO FILL

GILLETTE STADIUM 90 TIMES.

Reporter: BOSTON

EXPECTS TO SPEND DOUBLE THE

$80 MILLION IT HAD TO REMOVE

SNOW.

ON MONDAY, 5 50 PEOPLE WERE

STRANDED ON THEIR MORNING

COMMUTE AFTER SNOW FILLED UP

THE RAILS.

AND SCHOOLS ARE CLOSED,

MARKING THE EIGHTH SNOW DAY

THIS YEAR.

FOR MANY, JUST CLEARING THE

SNOW FROM HOMES AND

BUSINESSES HAS BECOME A BIG

CONCERN.

SOME ROOFS HAVE CAVED IN.

IT IS LIKE IN SLOW

MOTION, WATCHING THE WHOLE

THING COME OUT, BUT WE ALL

MADE IT OUT.

Reporter: OTHERS ARE

STRUGGLING TO FIND PLACES TO

PUT IT.

THERE IS NOWHERE TO GO

ANYMORE.

MOST PEOPLE UNDERSTAND,

WHAT CAN YOU DO?

YOU REALLY CAN'T CONTROL THE

WEATHER.

Reporter: FORECASTERS

SAY MORE SNOW IS COMING ON

THURSDAY.

AND IT IS CAUSING RIPPLE

EFFECTS ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

AIRLINES CANCELLED 2,000

FLIGHTS ON MONDAY AFTER

THREE STORMS IN A LITTLE

OVER TWO WEEKS.

MORE THAN 20,000 FLIGHTS

HAVE BEEN CANCELLED, LEAVING

NOT JUST A REGION, BUT A

COUNTRY, THAT IS ALREADY

WEARY OF WINTER WEATHER.

HEATHER SELLS, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: THE PRESIDENT IS

POISED TO ASK CONGRESS TO

AUTHORIZE THE USE OF

MILITARY FORCE TO FIGHT THE

ISLAMIC STATE GROUP.

THAT REQUEST MAY COME TODAY,

AND IT WOULD LEAD TO DEBATE

ON EXACTLY HOW TO ATTACK THE

SUNNI EXTREMISTS WHO SEIZED

TERRITORY IN IRAQ AND

SYRIA.

IN THE END, THAT WOULD LEAD

TO THE FIRST WAR VOTE IN

CONGRESS IN 13 YEARS.

CONGRESS PASSED A RESOLUTION

AUTHORIZING GEORGE B.BUSH

GEORGE W. BUSH TO USE FORCE

AGAINST IRAQ BACK IN 2002.

JORDAN CONTINUES ITS ANY

CAMPAIGN AGAINST ISIS

FOLLOWING THE BRUTAL MURDER

OF A PILOT.

THE PILOT HAS BECOME A

NATIONAL HERO, AND HIS DEATH

A RALLYING CRY.

Reporter: YOU DON'T

HAVE TO GO FAR IN THE

CAPITAL OF JORDAN WITHOUT

SEEING A POSTER OF THE MAN

BURNED ALIVE BY ISIS.

HIS HORRIFIC DEATH CHANGED

THE COURSE OF THIS NATION.

BEFORE THE MURDER OF MU'ATH

al-KASAESBEH, MANY

JORDANIANS WERE UNSURE IF

THEY SHOULD BE INVOLVED IN

THE U.S.-LED COALITION TO

DEFEAT ISIS.

BUT AFTER THE HORRIFIC

KILLING, PUBLIC OPINION

SHIFTED DRAMATICALLY.

IN JORDAN, EVERYTHING HAS

CHANGED AND ALL OF THE

PEOPLE ARE FOR UNITY AND

INSIST TO ELIMINATE THIS

KIND OF CANCER.

ALL OF US, WE ARE FEELING

VERY SAD AND VERY BAD.

WE ARE ALL ONE COMMUNITY,

AND MUATH WAS ONE OF US.

Reporter: THIS JORDIAN

ANALYST CALLS THE DEATH A

TURNING POINT.

BEFORE THAT, THE

GOVERNMENT USED TO HAVE SOME

PROBLEMS TO CONVINCE THE

JORDIAN PEOPLE THAT THE WAR

AGAINST ISIS IS OUR WAR.

Reporter: WHILE THE

PUBLIC RALLIES AROUND KING

ABDULLAH, HE SAYS THE

COUNTRY'S INVOLVEMENT

AGAINST ISIS WILL INCREASE,

BUT ONLY TO A POINT.

MORE AIRSTRIKES, AND MORE

SECURITY OPERATIONS, YES.

MAYBE SPECIAL FORCES OR SOME

SURGERIES HERE AND THERE,

YET.

BUT GROUND TROOPS DEPLOYED

IN SYRIA OR IN IRAQ IN BIG

NUMBERS, I THINK IT NEEDS A

DIFFERENT CONDITION.

Reporter: THOSE

CONDITIONS WOULD INCLUDE

OTHER MIDDLE EAST NATIONS,

LIKE SAUDI ARABIA AND THE

GULF STATES, JOINING JORDAN

IN THE FIGHT.

BY CREATING SERIOUS

MILITARY FORCES AND

DEPLOYING THEM IN IRAQ,

JORDAN WILL BE PART OF

THIS.

BUT TO GO ALONE OR WITH A

FEW COUNTRIES, I DON'T THINK

JORDAN WILL DO IT.

Reporter: UNTIL SUCH A

COALITION COMES ABOUT,

JORDAN'S AIR CAMPAIGN

CONTINUES.

AND ACCORDING TO A JORDIAN

GENERAL, IT IS MAKING

PROGRESS.

ISIS HAS LOST 20% OF ITS

CAPABILITIES AND MORE THAN

7,000 OF THEIR CRIMINAL

FIGHTERS HAVE BEEN KILLED.

Reporter: MANY HERE

STILL LOOK TO THE U.S. FOR

LEADERSHIP, BUT AS THIS MAN

TOLD US IN THE FIGHT AGAINST

ISIS, WHICH HE CALLS DAESH,

THE U.S. IS IN THE WRONG

POSITION.

THE MEETING BEHIND IS NOT

GOOD.

NO MORE.

LEADING FROM BEHIND IS NOT

GOOD.

YOU MUST LEAD FROM THE

FRONT.

YOU HAVE TO FINISH THAT.

LEADING FROM BEHIND, I DON'T

BELIEVE IT WORKS.

Reporter: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS, AMMAN,

JORDAN.

Efrem: PRESIDENT OBAMA

SAYS HE AND ISRAELI PRIME

MINISTER BENJAMIN NETANYAHU,

QUOTE,"HAVE A REAL

DIFFERENCE REGARDING NUCLEAR

NEGOTIATIONS WITH IRAN."

IN A CAMPAIGN SPEECH, NET

NET CRITICIZED INTERNATIONAL

NEGOTIATIONS WITH IRAN AND

SAID HIS TRIP TO THE U.S.

NEXT MONTH IS AN ATTEMPT TO

DESCRIBE ISRAEL'S OBJECTION

TO CONGRESS.

PRESIDENT OBAMA SAYS HE WILL

NOT MEET WITH NETANYAHU WHEN

HE IS IN WASHINGTON, D.C.

UNDER THE INVITATION.

OF REPUBLICAN HOUSE SPEAKER

JOHN BOEHNER.

HE SAYS HE WILL NOT MEET

WITH HIM BECAUSE OF THE

PRECEDENT OF NOT MEETING

WITH FOREIGN LEADERS WHO ARE

FACING AN UPCOMING

ELECTION.

CLARENCE THOMAS AND

SCALIA ARE CRITICIZING THEIR

COLLEAGUES FOR REFUSING TO

DELAY SAME-SEX MARRIAGE IN

ALABAMA.

THEY SAY IT GIVES THE

IMPRESSION THAT THE JUSTICES

ALREADY HAVE DECIDED THEY

WILL DECLARE GAY MARRIAGE

LEGAL UNDER THE

CONSTITUTION.

EVEN RUTH BADER GINSBURG

PERFORMED SAME-SEX WEDDINGS

LAST YEAR.

GAY MARRIAGE WAS SET TO

BECOME ILLEGAL ON SUNDAY

NIGHT, BUT CHIEF JUSTICE ROY

MOORE TOLD THE JUSTICES NOT

TO PERFORM SAME-SEX

MARRIAGES.

THE REDEFINITION OF THE

WORD MARRIAGE IS NOT FOUND

WITHIN THE POWERS DESIGNATED

BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.

WILL THEY GO TO MARRIAGES

BETWEEN MEN AND THEIR

DAUGHTERS OR WOMEN AND THEIR

SONS?

Efrem: THE SUPREME

COURT IS EXPECTED TO RULE ON

SAME-SEX MARRIAGE SOMETIME

IN JUNE.

> AND ARKANSAS SAW-MAKER

WANTS TO ALLOW THE

CELEBRATION OF CHRISTMAS IN

HIS STATE'S PUBLIC SCHOOLS.

JUSTICE HARRIS HAS FILED A

BILL THAT WOULD PERMIT

CHRISTMAS TREES, MENORAHS,

AND OTHER HOLIDAY DISPLAYS.

THE SCHOOLS COULD CREATE

HOLIDAY DISPLAYS AS LONG AS

THEY INCLUDE A SECULAR

SYMBOL OR AN IMAGE FROM

ANOTHER REGION.

AND TEACHERS AND STUDENTS

WOULD BE FREE TO SAY MERRY

CHRISTMAS, HAPPY HANUKKAH,

AND HAPPY HOLIDAY.

> MEDIA ANALYSTS ARE

DEBATING THE FUTURE OF NBC

ANCHOR BRIAN WILLIAMS

FOLLOWING HIS DECISION TO

TAKE A LEAVE OF ABSENCE.

HIS MOVE CAME AFTER A

FIRESTORM FOLLOWING THIS

ADMISSION OF A STORY OF

BEING IN A HELICOPTER THAT

CAME UNDER FIRE IN IRAQ

WASN'T TRUE.

SOME CAUTION MANY OF

WILLIAMS' OTHER STATEMENTS

ARE BEING SCRUTINIZED BY

FACT-CHECKERS, TO SEE IF HE

EMBELLISHED ANY OTHER

STORIES.

AND MAUREEN DOWD WRITES,

"NBC EXECUTIVES WERE WARNED

A YEAR AGO THAT WILLIAMS WAS

CONSTANTLY DEFLATING HIS

BIOGRAPHY, SOMETIMES TO

WHERE IT WAS A JOKE IN THE

MEDIA DIVISION."

TIM GRAHAM SAYS, IT IS

HARDER TO BELIEVE WILLIAMS'

APOLOGY BECAUSE HE

REPEATEDLY MADE UP A STORY

ABOUT A VERY DRAMATIC EVENT,

AND THAT'S NOT THE KIND OF

THING THAT IS EASY TO

MISREMEMBER.

I THINK THAT WE FEEL THAT

HE HAS COMPROMISED THE

INTEGRITY AND THE

CREDIBILITY OF THE ENTIRE

NEWS DIVISION.

THIS IS A NEWS DIVISION THAT

CLAIMS TO TELL AMERICANS WE

ARE THE ONES YOU CAN EXPECT

TO COVER THE FACTS.

WELL, IF YOU CAN'T EVEN

COVER YOUR OWN PERSONAL

HISTORY WITHOUT TRANSFORMING

IT INTO SOME SORT OF WALTER

MINIE PICTURE OF HEROISM, I

DON'T KNOW WHERE YOU GO FROM

THERE.

Efrem: GRAHAM SAYS IF

WILLIAMS HAD ANY KIND OF

DECENCY HE WOULD STEP DOWN

FROM HIS ROLE AS NBC NEWS

ANCHOR.

> THEY OFFER SPIRITUAL

FREEDOM IN THE FOX HOLE, BUT

NOW THEIR BELIEFS ARE BEING

CALLED HATE SPEECH.

SEE HOW THE RADICAL DAY

AGENDA IS A MUSLIM MILITARY

CHAPLAIN.

THE STORY IS NEXT.

Efrem: THE CANADIAN

SUPREME COURT HAS OPENED THE

DOOR TO DOCTOR-ASSISTED

SUICIDE.

THE COURT STRUCK DOWN

PROHIBITIONS AND RULED

PARLIAMENT SHOULD CREATE A

LIMITED SYSTEM OF

EXCEPTIONS.

THE ALLIANCE DEFENDING

FREEDOM HAS BEEN HELPING

GROUPS WHO WERE FIGHTING TO

UP HOLD THE BAN ON

EUTHANASIA.

BRETT HARVEY STATES,

SUFFERING PATIENTS NEED

SOUND MEDICAL TREATMENT AND

REAL COMPASSION, NOT

ENCOURAGEMENT TO TAKE THEIR

OWN LIVES.

BUT THE COURT RULED DOCTORS

CANNOT BE FORCED TO

PARTICIPATE IN KILLING

SOMEONE.

THAT PROTECTS DOCTORS'

RIGHTS TO CONSCIOUS AND

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM.

> DON'T ASK, DON'T TELL

USED TO REFER TO GAYS IN THE

MILITARY, BUT NOW IT COULD

APPLY TO CHRISTIANS IN

UNIFORM.

AND MILITARY CHAPLAINS ARE

ALSO FACING THE FACT THAT AT

TIMES BIBLICAL VALUES ARE

EVEN CALLED HATE SPEECH.

CHUCK HOLTON HAS THAT

STORY.

Reporter: CHAPLAINS

HAVE BEEN AN INTERGAL PART

OF THE MILITARY THROUGHOUT

OUR NATION'S HISTORY,

BRINGING HOPE TO THE LIVING

AND COMFORT TO THE DYING.

NOW SOME CHAPLAINS ARE

COMING UNDER FIRE FROM

OFFICIAL GOVERNMENT POLICY,

AND MUST CHOOSE BETWEEN

THEIR CONSCIENCE AND THEIR

COMMANDER'S ORDERS.

THE REPEAL OF "DON'T ASK,

DON'T TELL" WORRIES

CHAPLAINS.

CONGRESS STEPPED IN,

GUARANTEEING THE RIGHTS OF

ALL MILITARY PERSONNEL TO

EXERCISE THEIR FAITH.

I PUT IN AN AMENDMENT TO

THE 2014 NATIONAL DEFENSE

AUTHORIZATION ACT THAT

SIMPLY EXPANDS IN LAW AND

STATUTE TO BE IN COMPLIANCE

WITH THE CONSTITUTION

ITSELF.

THEY CAN, IN FACT, BRING

THEIR FAITH TO THE TABLE IN

THEIR WORK.

Reporter: RON CRUZ

SPENT 21 YEARS AS AN ARMY

CHAPLAIN.

CHAPLAINS AND NOT ONLY

CHAPLAINS, BUT ALL SERVICE

MEMBERS CANNOT RECEIVE

RECRIMINATION FOR LIVING OUT

THEIR FAITH.

Reporter: DESPITE THE

LAW, MANY CHRISTIANS, AND

ESPECIALLY CHAPLAINS, OFTEN

FIND THEMSELVES AT ODDS WITH

MILITARY LEADERSHIP.

SOME OF THE MORE EGREGIOUS

EXAMPLES, TWO CHAPLAINS

FORCED OUT OF THE PROGRAM

FOR QUOTING SCRIPTURE AND

PRAYING IN JESUS' NAME.

A CHAPLAIN CANDIDATE AND

FORMER GREEN BERET WAS ASKED

TO REPRESENT A FAITH OTHER

THAN HIS OWN BECAUSE,

QUOTE,"THERE ARE TOO MANY

BAPTIST CHAPLAIN CHAPLAINS"

UNQUOTE.

AND A SOLDIER ACCUSED OF

HATE SPEECH BECAUSE HE HAD A

BIBLE IN HIS DESK AT WORK.

I GOT AN E-MAIL FROM A

CHAPLAIN IN AFGHANISTAN WHO

PREACHED A SERMON FOR HIS

UNIT, TALKING ABOUT THE LAST

DAYS AND THE FACT THERE

WOULD BE A RISE IN

HOMOSEXUALITY.

HE GOT CALLED INTO HIS

COMMANDER'S OFFICE AND TOLD

YOU CANNOT PREACH FROM THAT

TEXT.

Reporter: ANOTHER

EXAMPLE HAPPENED HERE AT

FORT BENNING, GEORGIA.

A CHAPLAIN WAS ASKED TO GIVE

A SUICIDE PREVENTION CLASS.

BUT WHAT HAPPENED NEXT

EXPLODED IN CONTROVERSY.

CAPTAIN JOE LONGHORN SERVES

AT CHAPLAIN FOR THE FORT

BENNING.

HE IS A MASTER BLASTER

PARACHUTER, AND HE IS A

CHAPLAIN WHO REALLY KNOWS

WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A

SOLDIER.

Reporter: HE WAS ASKED

TO LEAD A SUICIDE PREVENTION

CLASS AT THE CAMP.

HE CITED HIS OWN EXPERIENCE

AND SHARED HIS PERSONAL

STRUGGLE WITH DEPRESSION.

JOE, AS A GOOD CHAPLAIN,

GENIDENTIFIED WITH THEM AND

SAID I'VE BEEN WHERE YOU

ARE.

AND I WANT TO TELL YOU HOW I

DEALT WITH SOME ISSUES OF

DEPRESSION.

HE GAVE A HANDOUT.

Reporter: ONE RANGER

TOOK A PICTURE WITH HIS

PHONE AND SENT IT TO THE

MILITARY, AND THEY MOSTED IT

ON A WEBSITE.

DURING THE PRESENTATION,

ACCORDING TO THOSE WHO WERE

WITNESSES WHO PROVIDED

STATEMENTS LATER SAID AT NO

TIME DID CHAPLAIN LONGHORN

SAY MINE IS THE ONLY WAY OR

THE BEST WAY.

Reporter: NOT LONG

AFTERWARD, HIS BRIGADE

COMMANDER CENSORED HIM FOR

GIVING THE HANDOUT.

IN OUR INVESTIGATION, THE

MILITARY HAS BEEN UNABLE TO

CITE ANY WRITTEN RULE OR

REGULATION THAT THE CHAPLAIN

ACTUALLY VIOLATED.

MEANWHILE, THE RANGER THAT

EXPLAINED RECEIVED SOME

PUNISHMENT, EVEN THOUGH HE

VIOLATED THE CHAIN OF

COMMAND.

YOU'RE IN A VERY

PLURALISTIC ENVIRONMENT.

SO YOU GET ALL FAITHS AND

FORMS OF LIFE.

Reporter: THIS CHAPLAIN

HAS BEEN INVOLVED IN EVERY

MAJOR AMERICAN CONFLICT

SINCE 1987.

GEORGE WASHINGTON, WHEN

HE FORMED THE CONTINENTAL

ARMY, FORMED TWO BRANCHES,

INFANTRY AND CHAPLAINS.

AND BASICALLY SAID, I NEED

WAR FIGHTERS AND I NEED MEN

WHO CAN MINISTER TO THE SOUL

OF WAR FIGHTERS.

ANY CHAPLAIN WHO IS DOING

THEIR JOB WELL IS A FORCE

MULTIPLIER FOR THE IMRNT.

UNIT.

WHICH MEANS THE UNIT IS MORE

EFFECTIVE IN COMBAT WITH A

CHAPLAIN THAN WITHOUT A

CHAPLAIN.

Reporter: HE SAYS THE

VIOLENT ROLE OF CHAPLAINS

GOES BEYOND LEADING CHURCH

SERVICES.

YOU NEED SOMEONE IN THE

UNIT WHO CAN DEAL WITH THE

SPIRITUAL ISSUES OF THE

SOLDIER.

NO ONE ELSE IN THE UNIT CAN

DO WHAT THE CHAPLAIN CAN

DO.

99% OF THE PEOPLE WERE

NOT CHRISTIAN.

THEY CAME TO ME BECAUSE I

WAS THERE WHILE THE BULLETS

WERE FLYING AND THEY NEEDED

SOMEBODY TO TALK TO.

Reporter: AND THAT'S

NOT ALL OF THE CHAPLAIN

DOES.

I WOULD SAY THERE ARE

10,000 CASES IN IRAQ AND

AFGHANISTAN -- THIS IS NOT

AN EXAGGERATION -- WHERE

TRAGEDIES COULD HAVE

HAPPENED, BUT THEY DIDN'T

BECAUSE THE CHAPLAIN WAS

THERE TO BE A MORAL

INFLUENCE.

Reporter: STEWART SAYS

THE CURRENT CLIMATE WOULD

MAKE IT MORE DIFFICULT TO DO

HIS JOB.

IF THE POINT COMES FROM

MY CAREER IS ASKING ME TO DO

SOMETHING MY DENOMINATION OR

MY RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD

PROHIBITS, I HAVE TO LEAVE

MY JOB.

Reporter: YOU SERVE

EVERYBODY WITH GRACE AND

DIGNITY.

HOWEVER, WHEN SOMEONE COMES

TO YOU FOR COUNSEL YOU'VE

GOT TO BE ABSOLUTELY CLEAR

UP FRONT, IF YOU'RE COMING

TO ME, I COUNSEL FROM A

BIBLICAL PERSPECTIVE.

I DON'T WANT TO SEE GOOD

CHAPLAINS LEAVE THE

MILITARY.

BUT IF YOU CAN'T DO IT IN

GOOD CONSCIENCE, YOU OWE IT

TO GOD TO LEAVE THE

MILITARY.

Reporter: FROM FORT

BENNING, GEORGIA, I'M CHUCK

HOLTON FOR CBN NEWS.

Efrem: SLEEP IS ONE OF

THE KEYS TO A HEALTHIER

LIFE, BUT SO MANY OF US

DON'T GET ENOUGH OF IT.

BUT NEW TECHNOLOGY IS

WORKING TO CHANGE THAT.

WE'RE GOING TO SHOW YOU

HOW.

Lori: HEY, EVERYBODY,

I'M LORI JOHNSON, HEALTH

REPORTER FOR CBN NEWS.

THIS IS COCONUT OIL AND IT

IS SO GOOD FOR YOU.

IT HELPS PREVENT AGAINST

COLDS AND FLUE FLUS.

IT IS A GREAT MOISTERIZER

BECAUSE IT ABSORBS RAPIDLY,

BUT THE BEST THING ABOUT

COCONUT OIL IS WHAT IT DOES

FOR YOUR BRAIN.

IT PROVIDES ENERGY TO YOUR

BRAIN CELLS IN A WAY NOTHING

ELSE CAN, SO IT HELPS

PREVENT AGAINST ALZHEIMER'S

AND DEMENTIA AND EVEN

REVERSES THOUGH SYMPTOMS IN

PEOPLE WITH ALZHEIMER'SMENT

YO ALZHEIMER'S.

YOU CAN REE READ MORE ON

THE BENEFITS OF COCONUT OIL

ON MY Facebook PAGE, AND

CHAT WE MY ON TWITTER ON

WEDNESDAY.

Efrem: WELL, IT IS A

NEW YEAR.

AND, CALEB, WE ALL NO WHAT

THAT MEANS.

LOTS OF PEOPLE WORKING ON

MAKING HEALTHIER DECISIONS,

CHANGING YOUR HABITS, GOING

TO THE GYM, CUTTING YOUR

CALORIES.

BUT YOU SAY ONE OF THE BEST

THINGS YOU CAN DO IS GET A

GOOD NIGHT SLEEP?

YES.

AND THERE ARE SOME GOOD

THINGS THAT CAN HELP YOU

WITH THAT.

SLEEP NUMBER HAS A NEW

TECHNOLOGY.

I WENT TO THE STORE TO CHECK

OUT ONE OF THE BEDS THAT

THEY PROMISED THE BEST SLEEP

OF YOUR LIFE.

WELCOME TO YOUR SLEEP

NUMBER STORE.

WHEN PEOPLE ARE SLEEPING,

THEY THINK YOU'RE A BATTERY

RECHARGING, BUT IS THERE

MORE TO WHAT IS GOING ON IN

THE BODY?

ABSOLUTELY.

THE FIRST HALF OF OUR NIGHT,

OUR BODIES ARE TAKING CARE

OF ITSELF.

THE HUMAN GROWTH HOMER

HORMONE HAPPENS THE FIRST

FEW HOURS.

OUR SKIN IS BEING REJULY

FOURT REJUVENATED.

AND THEN WE SHIFT INTO WHAT

IS SOMETIMES CALLED DREAM

STATE SLEEP.

AND THAT HAS TO DO WITH THE

BRAIN BEING REJUVENATED.

LET'S TALK ABOUT THE

DREAM SLEEP TECHNOLOGY?

LET ME SHOW YOU IN ONE OF

OUR SLEEP NUMBER BEDS.

WE'RE IN THE X-12 BED.

AND BECAUSE WE USE THE AIR

TO ADJUST YOUR SLEEP NUMBER

SETTING, WE CAN INTEGRATE

SENSORS IN THAT DUAL AIR

TECHNOLOGY.

AND AFTER I'M IN BED A

LITTLE, IT PICKS UP MY HEART

RATE.

AND ALL OF THAT IS

REGISTERED WHEN I GET OUT OF

BED AT NIGHT.

IN THE MORNING, WHAT IT

DOES, ON THE APPLICATION OR

THE REMOTE OF MY CHOICE, IT

GIVES ME A SLEEP I.Q.

SCORE.

AND IT INFORMS ME WHAT

PERCENTAGE OF THE NIGHT WAS

RESTFUL, AND WHEN WAS I A

LITTLE MORE RESTLESS.

AND WHEN YOU'RE DONE WITH

THAT, YOU CAN CONNECT THE

DOTS, WHAT DID I DO DURING

THE DAY THAT AFFECTED MY

SLEEP I.Q. SCORE SO MUCH

THAT NIGHT.

SO YOU LEARN TO KNOW BETTER

SLEEP.

WHAT IS SPECIAL ABOUT THE

SLEEP I.Q. KIDS' BED?

THE SLEEP I.Q. KIDS' BED

HAS EIGHT VERY SMART

FEATURES DESIGNED TO HELP

CHILD AND MOM AND DAD FIGURE

OUT THE BEST WITH TO DEVELOP

BEST SLEEP ROUTINES.

IT HAS THE HEAD TILT

FEATURE.

WHEN YOU ELEVATE THE BED

ABOUT 15 DEGREES, IT MAKES

IT VERY COMFORTABLE FOR THE

CHILDREN TO DO IT SO THEY'LL

READ.

IT IS ALL DONE THROUGH

WHATEVER YOU'RE USING FOR

THE APPLICATION.

IT COULD BE YOUR SMARTPHONE

OR YOUR TABLET.

AS A PARENT, YOU CAN DECIDE

WHEN YOU GIVE THEM CONTROL

OF THAT.

BUT THE HEAD TILT FEATURE IS

ALSO NIGHT FOR THOSE DAYS

WHEN THEY'RE CONGESTED.

WHEN THEY HAVE A COLD.

BUT IF THEY HAVE TO GET UP

AT NIGHT, AS SOON AS THEY

POP OUT OF BED, IT LIGHTS UP

SO THEY CAN SAFELY GO TO THE

BATHROOM.

FOR THE PARENT, ARE THEY

NOTIFIED THAT THE CHILD

LEAVES THE BED?

THEY ARE.

AND YOU CAN GET THIS

REMOTELY.

A LOT OF TIMES CHILDREN LIKE

TO GO TO BED WITH THE LIGHTS

ON.

THEY GET AFRAID.

AND SO YOU CAN LET THEM DO

THAT.

AND WHEN YOU GO TO BED, YOU

CAN CHECK, YES, THEY'RE IN

BED AND YOU CAN TURN THE

LIGHTS OFF.

CALEB, WHAT IF I'M NOT IN

THE MARKET FOR A NEW BED OR

CAN'T AFFORD IT.

IS THERE SOMETHING OUT THERE

THAT WILL HELP ME REST

EASIER?

A NEW APP COMES TO MIND

AND IT IS CALLED "SMART

ALARM."

IT BASICALLY WILL TURN YOUR

PHONE OR TABLET INTO A SLEEP

COMMAND CENTER.

Efrem: FIRST, HOW MUCH

DOES IT COST?

THE APP ONLY COSTS $2.

Efrem: AND WHAT ARE

SOME OF THE FEATURES?

THE APP MONITORS YOUR

SLEEP CYCLE AND HELPS YOU

WAKE UP PERFECTLY SO YOU'RE

REFRESHED AND READY FOR THE

DAY.

AND THE APP RECORDS THE

NOISE.

IT WILL RECORD AND MONITOR

ALL OF THAT.

Efrem: SO ALL OF MY

YEARS OF DENYING I SNORE ARE

OVER?

[LAUGHTER]

I'M EFREM GRAHAM.

AND I CALEB KINSLO, AND

THIS IS YOUR DIGITAL

DOWNLOAD.

Efrem: AND WELCOME BACK

TO CBN NEWS TODAY.

FINALLY THIS HOUR, ALL OF

THOSE CUPS OF COFFEE MAY

HAVE AN UNEXPECTED BENEFIT

FOR WOMEN.

NEW RESEARCH INDICATES IT

COULD CUT THE RISK OF

ENDOMETRIAL CANCER.

WOMEN WHO DRANK ABOUT FOUR

CUPS A DAY HAD ABOUT AN 18%

LOWER RISK OF GETTING THAT

TYPE OF CANCER THAN WOMEN

WHO DRANK LESS THAN A CUP

ADAY.

THE STUDY SAID THE

RESEARCHERS WERE NOT

SURPRISED AT ALL.

HEALTH DAY REPORTS THE

RESEARCHERS STILL DON'T KNOW

EXACTLY WHY COFFEE MIGHT

LOWER THE RISK OF THAT TYPE

OF CANCER, BUT ONE REASON

COULD BE THAT IT CUTS DOWN

ON THE AMOUNT OF ESTROGEN IN

THE BODY.

SO DRINK UP, AND HAVE A GOOD

CUP OF COFFEE.

THAT IS GOING TO DO IT NOW

FOR CBN NEWS TODAY.

YOU CAN FIND MORE OF OUR

EXCLUSIVE COVERAGE OF THE

ISSUES YOU CARE MOST ABOUT

AT CBNNEWS.COM.

TAKE THE TIME TO TELL US

ABOUT THE STORIES YOU'VE

SEEN HERE TODAY.

YOU CAN DO IT AT Facebook

OR AT CBN NEWS AT TWITTER.

HOPE YOU'LL JOIN US AGAIN

HERE NEXT TIME.

MAKE IT A TERRIFIC TUESDAY,

EVERYBODY.
