ramos spoke with the creators of galactic stream... and has their story. running a business takes years of wisdom and experience, but that isn't stopping two young entrepreneurs from building a corporation of their own. "age is just a number. i think that i ianyone sasa they're too young or too old, it's'sust an excuse," said seth tonner, developer of galactic stream. seth and austin tonner are both in their early twenties and have started galactic stream all on their own. galactic stream is a service that provides consumers with a small box that turns any tv into a smart television. it gives customers access to some of the latest televsion series and feature films, but it is different from competitors like netflix or hulu. " you have hundreds and hundreds of thousands of options, and you're never paying a monthly fee again,there's no competition. there's other company out there that's doing what we're doing," said seth tonner. and this isn't where these brothers plan on stopping with expansion. the co-

"i've started a few businesses. some of them have failed and soso of them are still successful today," said austin tonner. they've learned the importance of customer service when it comes to providing the ultimate stellar experience. galactic stream is unique because customers can call in to have their their prelaunch sale is on from now until november 15th. customers can go online at galatic- stream-dot-com for more details. jessica rae: nasa astronauts scott kelly and kjell lindgren (chell, lend-grin) took a walk outside the international space station yesterday. it wasn't a leisurely walk, the crew has about seven hours of work to complete. the astronauts

6:42 am
and as a result football players have the highest risk of experiencing a concussion. but, helmet sensors are
6:43 am
intended to help reduce that risk. but a local school with the device is finding that preventing concussions may require more. abc9 news reporter deborah souverain has the story. pkg "the stigma of concussions surrounds football so when bishop heelan high school got a grant for schockbox helmet sensors last year.... the athletic department was excited. however, a year later..only three sensors remain and they aren't as helpful as expected. "there is a place for some of that technology but i think it's quite not to the point were they figured out how to use it yet," dan nelson, bishop heelan athletic trainer said. in fact, the helmet sensors haven't changed how heelan's coaches and athletic trainers work. bishop heelan's girls volleyball team has had two players with concussions in the past year. while there isn't direct body contact ... concussions occur for other reasons. "i don't think we've done anyting differently from the date we collected , it doesn't really change anything we
6:44 am
do," said dan nelson, bishop heelan athletic trainer. "you could maybe see a kid that takes a really hard hit and i'll go over and talk to them and stuff but it doesn't really change [things] i'm not going to pull a kid out of the game for one of those readings." to prevent traumatic brain injuries coaches and trainers undergo training to detect and handle concussions the right way. "five to 10% of all student athletes will suffer a concussion at some point during the season, regardless of what sport they of those on the football field, and it's not just confined to contact sports," deborah souverain "none of these have been contact with another player, they with the floor. so we've really been trying to emphasize how to go to the floor, the right technique to roll miller bishop heelan volleyball head coach. now take a baseline test, and before 6 years ago even when level we didn't have any type of testing for the atheletes," heelan player who just returned

6:46 am
even the plain ones." jessica rae: efforts like the teal pumpkin project aim to increase awareness about the problem by encouraging families to offer a low-cost, non- food option in addition to candy for halloween trick-or- treating... and place a teal- painted pumpkin on their doorstep as an indicator. you can, of course, paint a pumpkin teal yourself, using spray paint, or area hy-vee stores have jumped on the awareness campaign and will be selling some teal pumpkins. jessica rae: a couple's wily wiener dog stole the show after photobombing their engagement shoot. take a look at these hilarious pictures. that's louie the dachshund, working the camera and blocking the lovely couple--chris and megan. apparently, louis enjoys the fall leaves--a lot! looking at these pictures he just might be a camera hog too. megan had louis before she met chris, and says she's starting to suspect the pup is a bit jealous.
