THREATS OF WAR GROW LOUDER.

HOW AMERICA IS RESPONDING TO THE

LATEST ROUND OF WARNINGS FROM

NORTH KOREA.

PLUS STANDING UP FOR

CONSERVATIVE PRINCIPLES.

CBN NEWS SITS DOWN WITH

WISCONSIN GOVERNOR SCOTT WALKER.

WHY SITTING MAYBE PUTTING YOU AT

RISK FOR FUTURE HEALTH ISSUES.

ALL OF THIS AND MORE TONIGHT ON

"NEWSWATCH." THE WHITE HOUSE IS

DOWN PLAYING THE POSSIBILITY OF

WAR BUT EVEN SO, U.S. IS MAKING

IT CLEAR IT IS READY TO RESPOND

IF IT HAS TO.

GOOD EVENING , I AM WENDY

GRIFFITH.

UNITED STATES IS BEEFING UP ITS

PRESENCE BY SENDING IN

ADDITIONAL WARSHIPS.

DALE HURD BRINGS US TONIGHT'S

TOP STORY.

NORTH KOREA HAS MOVED A

MISSILE WITH CONSIDERABLE RANGE

TO ITS EAST COAST.

SOUTH KOREA SAYS THERE ARE NO

SIGNS THE NORTH THE PREPARING

FOR A CONFLICT.

STILL THEY ARE SURROUNDING

MISSILE DESTROYERS TO GUAM.

A TEAM OF U.S. CHEMICAL WEAPONS

EXPERTS RETURN TO SOUTH KOREA

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN EIGHT

YEARS.

NORTH KOREA HAS THE SECOND

LARGEST STOCK PILE OF CHEMICAL

WEAPONS.

IT ONLY TAKES BEING WRONG

ONCE.

I DON'T WANT TO BE THE SECRETARY

OF DEFENSE WHO WAS WRONG ONCE

U.S. USING SMALLER, LIGHTER

NUCLEAR WEAPONS.

NUCLEAR WEAPONS EXPERT ANDRIA

BURGER THINKS THEY ARE BLUFFING.

AT THE PRESENT TIME WE DON'T

THINK THEY WILL SEND IT TO

WASHINGTON, GUAM, OR HAWAII

REPORTER: THE NORTH KOREANS

KNOW THEY CAN'T WIN IN A

CONFLICT WITH THE UNITED STATES.

NORTH KOREA IS VERY AWARE OF

MILITARY POWER.

THEY CAN BE DETERRED BECAUSE

THEY WISH TO SURVIVE.

ATTACKING THE U.S. WOULD BE

COMMITTING SUICIDE.

U

REPORTER: THE U.S. WITH

28,000 TROOPS ON THE PENINSULA

MUST TAKE PYONGYANG SERIOUSLY.

WE SHOULD TAKE IT SERIOUSLY

WHEN SOMEONE IS THREATENING US

REPORTER: HACKERS HAVE

BROKEN INTO ONLINE SITES.

A CAPTION ACCUSES KIM OF

THREATENING WORLD PEACE WHILE

HIS PEOPLE STARVED TO DO.

NORTH KOREA IS ONE OF THE

MOST DANGEROUS PLACES IN THE

WORLD FOR CHRISTIANS.

WE TURN TO JERRY DIKESTRA FROM

OPEN DOORS USA.

JERRY TALK ABOUT THE WHAT THE

CHRISTIANS FACE?

OBVIOUSLY CHRISTIANS ARE

CAUGHT IN THE MIDDLE.

THEY ARE FACING MORE

PERSECUTION.

WE KNOW FROM THE REPORTS WE ARE

GETTING THEY ARE BEING ARMED.

MANY OF THE NORTH KOREANS ARE

CITIZENS ARE BEING CALLED

TOGETHER IN MEETINGS, GIVEN

GUNS, EVEN YOUTH AND WOMEN.

THEY ARE TELLING EVERYBODY THAT

THE U.S. IS THE ENEMY AND SOUTH

KOREA IS THE ENEMY.

SO THEY HAVE THE DEGREE OF

PERSECUTION.

DOES THE CHURCH THINK NORTH

KOREA WILL CARRY OUT THEIR

THREATS OF WAR.

WHAT WOULD THAT MEAN FOR THE

CHRISTIANS ALREADY PERSECUTED?

KIM JONG UN IS UPPING THE

ANTICS.

IS HE BLUFFING?

WHO KNOWS.

EVEN TODAY ONE OF THE MISSILES

ON TO THE EAST COAST.

EVERYDAY SOMETHING DIFFERENT.

THERE COULD BE ACCIDENTAL WAR.

HOW COULD WE IN AMERICA HELP

CHRISTIAN HELP?

A KOREAN PASTOR TOLD OPEN

DOORS HE IS STANDING STRONG.

WE BELIEVE 200-400,000 ARE

KEEPING THE FAITH.

THEY ARE NOT BEING DISCOURAGED.

THEY NEED OUR PRAYERS.

REALLY PLEADING FOR OUR PRAYERS

IN THE WEST.

THEY KNOW IT IS VERY IMPORTANT.

SO THEY ASK SPECIFICALLY FOR

PEACE IN THEIR REGION AND LORD

MAY COME INTO THE HEART OF KIM

JONG UN AND GIVE WISDOM TO OUR

OFFICIALS IN CHINA AND SOUTH

KOREA AND IMPORTANT DECISIONS.

NO. 3, FOOD IS VERY SCARCE AND

NOW SCARCER.

SO IT IS HARD TO GET ANY GOODS

AT ALL.

MOST OF THE STORES ARE CLOSED.

WE KNOW ALREADY 16 MILLION

CITIZENS ARE STARVING.

DEATH THERE IN NORTH KOREA.

PRAY FOR THAT ALSO, FOR THEIR

FAMILIES.

NEW OUR PRAYERS ARE FOR NORTH

KOREA.

JERRY DIKESTRA, THANKS FOR YOUR

TIME.

LEADERS FROM SIX WORLD POWERS

MET WITH IRANIAN OFFICIALS TO

NEGOTIATE THE COUNTRY'S NUCLEAR

PROGRAM.

THE REPUBLIC IS CLOSER TO MAKING

ATOMIC ARMS.

THAT POSES A THREAT TO MIDDLE

EAST PEACE.

IRAN IS ONLY A FEW MONTHS AWAY

FROM MAKING A NUCLEAR WEAPON.

TEHRAN SAYS THEIR PROGRAM SERVES

ONLY PEACEFUL NEEDS.

UNITED STATES WILL NOT TOLERATE

AN IRAN ARMED WITH NUCLEAR

WEAPONS.

CONNECTICUT LAWMAKERS HAVE

PASSED SWEEPING NEW GUN LAWS.

LEADERS VOTED FOR THE BILL.

CONFIDENT THIS WON'T HAPPEN

GOVERNMENT PROGRAMS.

I CHALLENGE THAT BACK, I LOVE

THE PEOPLE OF MY STATE.

I LOVE THEM SO MUCH I DON'T WANT

THEM TO BE INDEBTED TO THE

GOVERNMENT FOR THE REST OF THEIR

LIVES.

I WANT THEM TO FIND IT EASIER TO

GET A JOB NOT HARDER TO FIND

JENNIFER WISHON CBN NEWS.

700 MILLION DOLLARS FOR

VICTIMS OF HURRICANE KATRINA WAS

MISSPENT OR MISSING.

UP TO $30,000 TO HELP OWNERS

RENOVATE OR REBUILD HOMES.

DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND URBAN

DEVELOPMENT SAYS THE STATE IS

RESPONSIBLE FOR MAKING SURE THE

MONEY IS SPENT PROPERLY.

NOW PRESSING LOUISIANA TO PURSUE

THE MONEY AND TOM COBURN IS

MAKING SURE IT DOESN'T HAPPEN TO

VICTIMS OF HURRICANE SANDY.

THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS SET TO

SPEND 16 BILLION DOLLARS RELATED

TO SANDY AND CITIZENS AFFECTED

BY THE STORM CAN'T AFFORD TO SEE

IT REPEATED.

COMING UP, VISIT THE WEST BANK

AND WHY MANY JEWISH PEOPLE ARE

NOT BACKING AWAY FROM THEIR

BIBLICAL HOMELAND.

SECRETARY OF STATE JOHN KERRY

HEADING TO THE MIDDLE EAST FOR

THE THIRD TIME IN THREE WEEKS.

HE IS TRYING TO RESTART THE

PEACE TALKS.

HIS MEETINGS WITH ISRAELI AND

PALESTINIAN LEADERS REPRESENT

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION MOST

SUSTAINED EFFORTS IN THE MIDDLE

EAST.

MILITANTS HAVE FIRED SEVERAL

ROCKETS FROM GAZA INTO ISRAEL.

ISRAEL RETALIATED WITH AIR

STRIKES.

JEWS SAY IT IS THEIR BIBLICAL

HOMELAND.

MUCH OF THE WORLD WANTS THEM TO

START BUILDING IN JUDEA AND

SAMARIA.

JEWISH SETTLERS PUTTING DOWN

ROOTS FOR GENERATIONS TO COME.

CHRIS MITCHELL HAS THE STORY.

THIS IS WHERE THE PLAYGROUND

THAT MY ORGANIZATION THE

CHILDRENS FUND SET UP FOR THE

CHILDREN HERE.

THIS IS A COMMUNITY ACCOMPLISHED

SEVERAL YEARS AGO.

REPORTER: IN 2001 IT WAS THE

MURDER SCENE AFTER 30-YEAR-OLD

HEARSEKAWITZ KILLED IN AN

ATTACK.

BIBLICAL PATRIARCHS TRAVELED.

ONE L. GOH

ONE WAY WE ISRAELIS SURVIVE IS

BY ESTABLISHING NEW COMMUNITIES.

REPORTER: MUCH OF THE WORLD

CONSIDERS IT OCCUPIED.

BIBLE CALLS IT JUDEA AND

SAMARIA.

PALESTINIANS WANT IT FOR A

FUTURE STATE.

UNITED NATIONS SETTLEMENT IS

CLEAR.

IT DOES NOT HELP THE ONGOING

PEACE PROCESS.

THEY REALLY THINK THAT THE

LAND OF ISRAEL BELONGS -- NOT TO

THE JEWS.

THEY LOOK AT EVERYTHING WE DO AS

ILLEGAL.

REPORTER: THE LEAGUE OF

NATIONS, ENCOURAGED JEWISH

SETTLEMENT.

ARTICLE 6 READS ADMINISTRATION

OF PALESTINE, WHILE ENSURING

RIGHTS ARE NOT PREJUDICE SHALL

FACILITATE JEWISH IMMIGRATION

AND CLOSE SETTLEMENT BY JEWS ON

THE LAND.

OUR MESSAGE IS WE WILL NOT

SURRENDER.

WE WILL DO THE OPPOSITE WHICH IS

TO BUILD FOR THE FUTURE THROUGH

NEXT GENERATIONS.

REPORTER: CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN

NEWS, SAMARIA.

UP NEXT, WHY SITTING COULD

LEAD TO SERIOUS ILLNESSES AND

WHAT YOU CAN DO TO PREVEND THEM.

A NEW STUDY SHOWS WALKING CAN

BE JUST AS HEALTHY AS RUNNING.

RESEARCHERS FOUND THE SAME

ENERGY SPENT RUNNING AS WALKING

CAN REDUCE HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE,

HIGH CHOLESTEROL, DIABETES AND

HEART DISEASE.

PHYSICAL ACTIVITY IS GOOD NO

MATTER THE INTENSITY LEVEL.

SITTING MORE THAN SIX HOURS A

DAY CAN BE DEADLY.

AVERAGE OF NINE HOURS A DAY.

LORIE JOHNSON SAYS YOU DON'T

HAVE TO QUIT YOUR DESK JOB YET.

WHEN WE SIT, ESPECIALLY FOR

LONG PERIODS OF TIME, OUR BODIES

TEND TO SHUT DOWN WHICH CAN LEAD

TO AN EARLY DEATH.

THE TRICK, THE TRICK, THE

TRICK IS TO HAVE IT IN HERE THAT

SITTING IS THE NEW SMOKING.

SITTING IS LITERALLY BAD FOR

YOU.

FOR FIFTEEN YEARS, MAYO

CLINIC'S JAMES LEVINE HAS

STUDIED CONSEQUENCES OF SPENDING

TOO MUCH TIME ON OUR DUFF.

PEOPLE THAT SIT FOR A LONG

PERIOD OF TIME THROUGHOUT THE

DAY PR PREDISPOSED FOR DIABETES.

PEOPLE THAT HAVE DIABETES, IT IS

WORSE.

REPORTER: ADD INCREASED BLOOD

PRESSURE, OBESITY AND MORE.

PEOPLE WHO SIT MORE ARE MORE

PRONE TO CANCERS, BREAST CANCER,

PROSTATE CANCER, COLON CANCER,

MULTIPLE CANCERS!

IN ADDITION THEY ARE MORE PRONE

TO DEPRESSION, FEELING BLUE.

EVEN PEOPLE WHO HAVE MENTAL

ILLNESS, THEIR ILLNESS IS

ACTUALLY WORSE.

REPORTER: AS A POTENTIAL

SOLUTION, DR. LEVINE WORKED WITH

COMPANIES TO IMPROVE THE

COMBINATION TREADMILL DESK.

AT $3,500, THIS STEAL CASE WALK

STATION IS THE GOLD STANDARD.

THERE ARE CHEAPER ALTERNATIVES.

I WAS SITTING FOR HOURS AFTER

HOUR SOMETIMES 10 OR SO HOURS.

I JUST KNOW ALL THAT SITTING IS

BAD FOR YOU.

REPORTER: DIETITIAN JILL

WISENBURGER WORKS OUT OF HER

HOME AND SPENT $500 FOR A TRUCK

DESK.

IT FITS OVER THE TREADMILL SHE

EVER HAD.

I DON'T COMPLAIN ABOUT BACK

PAIN.

JILL KEEPS HER PACE AT 1.4

MILES AN HOUR SO SHE CAN

CONCENTRATE WITHOUT GETTING

SWEATY OR OUT OF BREATH.

I COULD BE ON IT FOR THREE TO

SEVEN HOURS.

AND SO I ALMOST ALWAYS WALK

ABOUT 30 SOME MILES A WEEK.

THERE ARE OTHER SOLUTIONS.

DOROTHY SHULTY WHO WORKS HERE AT

CBN FIGURED A WAY TO A I VOID

SITTING BY MAKING A STAND UP

DESK.

A LOT OF THE BACK PAIN WENT

AWAY, A LOT LESS TIRED.

REPORTER: FOR 35 BUCKS SHE

ATTACHED TWO BLOCKS TO THE DESK

AND REPLACED CHAIR WITH A BAR

STOOL.

I DON'T STAND THE WHOLE DAY

CONSTANTLY.

I'LL GO BACK AND FORTH 30-45

MINUTES

REPORTER: THERE ARE OTHER

THINGS YOU CAN DO TO MINIMIZE

HAZARD OF DESK JOB.

TAKE THE STAIRS INSTEAD OF

THE ELEVATOR.

HOW ABOUT A PORTABLE STAIR

STEPPER.

SLIDE IT OUT, START STEPPING

AWAY.

SET YOUR ALARM AS A REP

MINDER TO TAKE A LAP OR TWO

AROUND YOUR WORK AREA.

WHAT APPEARS TO BE THE CASE,

PEOPLE GET AS MUCH OR MORE

BENEFIT FROM BEING UP AND

WALKING A LITTLE BIT EVERY HOUR

THAN GOING TO THE GYM THREE

TIMES A WEEK.

INSTEAD OF E-MAILING A

CO-WORKER, WALK OVER TO THEM.

CHOOSE THE PRINTER FAR FROM YOUR

DESK AND PARK FAR FROM YOUR

BUILDING.

NO. 1 ITEM, WE HAVE DEPLOYED

THIS IN OVER 60 CORPORATIONS IN

UNITED STATES WALKING TO

MEETINGS.

ALSO WALK AT LUNCHTIME.

A GOOD WAY TO MEASURE IS TO

WEAR A PODOMETER.

WHEN YOU GET HOME AVOID BEING

A COUCH POTATO.

EACH HOUR, SITTING IN FRONT OF

THE TV MEANS 11% HIGHER DEATH

RISK.

BOTTOM LINE IS THERE ARE LOTS OF

WAYS TO GET OFF YOUR BOTTOM.

THAT WAY YOU CAN KEEP YOUR DESK

JOB AND YOUR GOOD HEALTH.

LORIE JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

GOOD THING I STAND.

UP NEXT, MOM TO THE RESCUE, HOW

ONE PHONE CALL HELPED SAVE A

LIFE.

WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS, CALL

YOUR MOM AT LEAST THAT IS WHAT

ONE EMERGENCY DISPATCHER DID.

I HAD MY PARTNER TAKING THE

CALL, I WAS LISTENING TO HIM, I

WAS OVERHEARING WHAT WAS GOING

ON AND REALIZED THE AREA HE WAS

TALKING ABOUT, I KNEW WHERE IT

WAS.

IT WAS RIGHT WHERE MOST OF MY

FAMILY WAS AT THAT MOMENT.

THIS WOMAN WAS WORKING HER #

911 SHIFT, A KAYAKER HAD FALLEN

OVERBOARD.

SHE KNEW THE SPOT IMMEDIATELY

NEAR WHERE HER MOM WAS

CELEBRATING EASTER DINNER.

SOMETIMES EVES DROPPING IS

GOOD IF YOU ARE GOING TO SAVE A

LIFE.

I BORROWED ONE OF THE KAYAKS

AND KAYAKED TO MAKE SURE THE

PERSON WAS OKAY AND BE THERE IF

SHE WOULD SLIP.

INCREDIBLE.

POLICE WERE ON THE WAY BY BOAT

BUT WERE 30 MINUTES AWAY.

RAIDEN'S MOM PROBABLY SAVED THE

KAYAKER'S LIFE.

INCREDIBLE.

NO COINCIDENCE THERE WAS IT?

THAT IS ALL FOR THIS EDITION OF
