from sudden cardiac arrest. a study from the american heart association shows african americans are more likely to die from the condition than caucasians. martie salt has the story of one family who's refusing to be another statistic. it can happen in a matter of minutes. for years, forty-two year old tashia youmans loved making memories with her family. all the while, she
time bomb. "it was a hole in my heart. and i could look at my fingertip and i go 'wow, this is about 10 millimeters.'" at a yearly checkup, tashia's doctor found the hole, which they say she had since birth. that defect greatly increased her odds of suffering sudden cardiac arrest. "sometimes i didn't really want to sit there and actually have to hear it, um but i knew i had to, um for her, for my wife." tashia and her family are not alone. new research from the american heart association shows that blacks are twice as likely as whites to experience sudden cardiac arrest. "and the more concerning thing is that they were, they actually tended to be younger than the, their caucasian counterparts. " the study also found blacks had higher rates of other risk factors - like diabetes, high blood pressure, and kidney failure. experts aren't sure why they found a discrepancy, but some say it's a wakeup call. "prevention will make all this better. so we really should start looking at prevention rather than treatment for most of these conditions." tashia is thankful doctors were able to repair the hole in her heart before it was too late. the family has adopted a heart-healthy diet and lifestyle. "thank god that i'm still alive and i'm glad i actually acted on my um instinct to go to the doctor."
for the study, researchers collected data on black and white residents in portland, oregon who experienced sudden cardiac arrest over a 10 year period. researchers are also studying variables in communities with large latino populations. the new year is almost here... and legislators are debating a massive trade deal, which u-s-d-a leaders say could help farmers. coming up, david geiger breaks it down in the agribusiness report. good morning this is the
20-16 agenda. the trans-pacific partnership covers 12 pacific rim nations.. including the u-s.. and president obama is optimistic.. congress can approve the trade pact.. even though senate leaders say there aren't enough votes... leaders in the u-s-d-a.. say t- p-p helps u-s ag compete by removing a lot of tariffs.. and it was a hard fought deal.. it took more than 38 negotiating sessions. "and so a lot of work has gone in there. we consulted a great deal with our advisory committees our private sector advisory committees. to make sure that it reflected the sort of priorities and strategic objectives we have in agriculture and so i think we've done a great job and i think a lot of people in rural america will come to the same conclusion." not all of rural americans are on board.. the national farmers union came out against t-p-p.. they say there are some countries that have snap-back provisions.. which says if a country thinks its industry is being harmed.. they can replace the tariffs... "since
prices are going down, our live cattle prices are going down and now we have a trade with no currency manipulation and these snap back provisions it is going to harm family us to import more and decrease our prices here in the united states." currency manipulation.. or countries devaluing from them cheaper.. and products from the u-s more expensive.. is the other major issue the n-f-u and trade deal.. last week the american farm bureau voted to support t- p-p.. their economist says currency manipulation is too vague to dismiss the whole deal.... "i think currency manipulation can be really difficult to document and prove. in that respect, it's difficult to create concrete guidelines that you can fall back on in any situation to definitely identify currency manipulation or provide remediation for it. so currency manipulation is kind of a tough thing i think to concretely work into these kind of trade deals." if you want to learn more about
agricultural service has graphics on their website.. w-w-w dot f-a-s dot u-s-d-a dot gov forward slash t-p-p.. ---- the markets closed at noon thursday for the rest of the weekend.. so for a recap i asked analyst don roose about the days heading into the christmas weekend. "the grain market, what we're really seeing is people positioning for the three day weekend. fear that we could see a pattern change ahead of the end of the weekend next week." "and so what we're seeing is some pressure, some profit taking on the soybeans. argentina continues to sell grain at very depressed levels on corn and soybeans and wheat. and they're trading corn in argentina about 25 cents less than us so it anchors the corn market close to contract lows." "the cattle market has had 180 reversal in the news from a negative to a positive. poor feedlot conditions continue to support the cattle market. the beef market's found a bottom. the
down. so the technical buying continues in the cattle market to the upside. now we're getting a little bit overbought." "well the hog market we did have a quarterly hogs and pigs report. the report was neutral with a tint to the positive side. so we're having the hog market following the cattle market to the upside. overall, the cattle market the hog market probably stalls out a bit also." ---- and that wraps up our show for today.. thanks for joining us today on the agribusiness report.. i'll see you again tomorrow. ---- we'll post a video every
day in the agribusiness section of kcrg.com. you'll find it under the news tab. i'm david geiger with the agribusiness report. trt 3.52 oc webtease the battle to beat cancer... police officers in iowa city are helping a fellow employee in her mom's fight for life! a picture on the university of
brought plenty of prayers and well wishes..... they were for one young officer who learned
her mother's cancer has returned. fellow officers are showing their support with their heads. tv-9's chris earl has this week's show you care spotlight. have you ever worked a job really early in the morning -- or perhaps late at night? it's a shift where the bosses are usually gone, you may feel you're understaffed...and "us against the world" mentality. officer jackie anderson got the news last month about her mother... " 35:20 small cell lung cancer and it's extensive. "
inside the university of iowa public safety office. jackie chose to shave her head -- to support her mother... " 34:10 i shaved mine the same day. " only the others working the nights followed -- this pack of other officers who decided to follow jackie's lead. " 36:15 it's really touching and my intent was just for my mother and when the guys shaved their heads, i think they agreed with me it wasn't for any kind of attention - it was just a ting amongst us. we threw the picture up for fun... " and the picture, posted last week on the department's facebook page, let others know why all of the evening officers chose to keep it "high and tight"...well, almost all of the officers -- no one dared take a norelco to the k-9. " 41:10 we see these people more tha new see our own family. they are our own family, our brothers and our sisters. our number 1 goal is helping each other out in this department. " " 39:00 i think people make assumptions when you see a cop with a shaved head, a negative assumption about what that cop might be about. the guys on this shift are really great guys even though they'll that.
