with just a wave of a hand, brain surgeons can get some help in the opeting room. that's all thanks a pair of university of iowa undergraduate students. live in the newsroom this morning. forrest, what did these students do to help surgeons? they built a robot. three ui students coded and assembled the thing for a senior project. take a look. currently, doctors often use microscopes to do brain surgery. they have to spend up to ten hours looking into the device, often hunched over. the robot replaces all that. it uses cameras to lock on to an area of the brain, like a tumor. video is sent back to a headset, which the surgeon can wear. the doctor can even use a special hands free controller to move the camera. though the robot is a prototype, creators have high hopes for the future. " we're happy with our result. t, i think that in the future, new technology is coming out all the time, i think they'll be able to modify or change little things about this and make it even
5:02 am
students s t the idea from a university of iowa hospitals and clinics physician. the robot turned out so well, the university says patents have been filed on the prototype. if you're a big gameme you may have noticed that headset the robot uses is actually designed for gaming. it's called an oculus rift, a virtual reality device. it's scheduled for public release later this year. chris back to you. thanks a lot forrest. starting next school year, students who don't read at grade level may have to repeat 3rd grade. it's because of iowa's new reading and retention law, which lawmakers passed in 2012. last school year, more than 1/5 of iowa 3rd graders failed a standardized test in reading. so lawmakers decided to address the problem by requiring any 3rd grader deemed "substantially deficient" in reading to attend a summer program or repeat 3rd grade. the law goes into effect next school year. so the first class of students it will impact is in 2nd grade now.
5:03 am
cedar rapids schools started working on ways to improve reading a year ago last fall. 2nd graders had recess time cut just a bit so they could spend more time on reading. the district conducts testing 3 times a year for reading proficiency. a score at the "substantial deficiency level" will result in a letter to parents. schools wifl create an intervention plan both for parents and for the teacher to use in the classroom. 24% of 3rd graders in cedar rapids were listed as deficient last year but administrators believe that number is dropping. " we saw good results from fall to spring that our kids did make nice growth so i anticipate that 24 percent of third graders not proficiency last spring will be lower this spring. " 3rd graders who don't meet the reading standards in spring of 20-17 can stay with their class if they take part in a summer school reading program.

about 45 iowa national guard soldiers are back home after helping provide clean water to flood victims in missouri. they returned yesterday from high ridge, which is about 30 miles southwest of st. louis. the guard members helped purify drinking water after extensive flooding contaminated the water treatment plant there. one of the soldiers, who is based in cedar rapids, described the daily routine. " 10:02:56 our company did a 12-hour rotation. we'd go on shift at 3 clock and run water until 3 in the morning. then we'd go back to the armory and trade trucks up. in our off time,e,we'd get food, shower, sleep p cory rains says it took the troops just a day to get into the routine after they got the call to help at last minute. four years after a windstorm took down a library, the garrison library board is almost ready to unveil the new library in town. the board decided to build a new library after

damaged the previous building. the chchdren's reading area and new fire place are now finished. the board says it raised money for the project and depended on volunteers to do so much of the work. "5:43:20 it's amazing and it's unbelievable to look back on the journey we took. that we had the courage to try it and that it actually happened is amazing." while the library side is finished, the group is still raising money to complete the opposite side of the building. it will hold a city office, kitchen and multipurpose room. the group says it also used some grant money - as well as money from the insurance settlement. city leaders in marion are criticizing a deal the cedar rapids city council made to keep a business from moving to marion. last month, it approved a $506,000 tax break for equipment manufacturin g company, terex. that helped the company pay lower rent and buy office furniture as a new tenant in the fountains development in northeast cedar rapids. the company says without the
5:06 am
moved its 50 jobs out of cedar rapids into marion. this is video of the old location. at the time of the vote, cedar rapids mayor ron corbett said he didn't want marion and hiawatha to continue luring away businesses with tax incentives. marion's city manager said the city wasn't planning to give terex any tax incentive. and marion's economic development corporation called the tax break a "dangerous precedent." the national labor relations board says it has found enough evidence to issue a complaint against penford's parent company, ingredion. the board says the company violated federal law in its contract negotiations with the union at the cedar rapids plant. the labor board has offered ingredion a settlement, and is now waiting for the company to respond. more than 150 union members voted in august to reject ingredion's last contract offer. they're still working towards a new contract. the salvation army in johnson county is now providing a daytime shelter for those who are homeless. most shelters in eastern iowa offer people a place to sleep at night. but now, they'll have a place to go during the

good morning this is the agribusiness report. i'm david geiger. ---- congress is back in session this week... and while one of the first items on the congressiona l agenda concerns health care.. on top o othe president's agenda is the trans-pacific partnership. but now that we're in a presidential election year.. there's likely to be twists and turns for the 12 nation trade deal.. senate republican leader mitch mcconnell said it s too controversial last year.. and the president shouldn't send it in until after elections.. but that could mean the new president would have to be on board with the deal.. but mcconnell could bee reconsidering .. "since then, i've heard senator mcconnell back off a little bit.

have anything to report except the general proposition, which is what i think senator mcconnell was speaking to. it's pretty difficult to get sub- controversial things through the senate and the house when you've got a presidential election year." house speaker paul ryan says he wants to bring up the trade deal as soon as he can. ---- iowa just got a new host of efforts to conserve water and soil.. and improve nutrient management practices.. yesterday.. u-s ag secretary tom vilsack announced an expansion of u-s-d-a's conservation programs for iowa's producers.. 85 thousand acres of iowa land is now able to apply for sensitive lands grants and loans.. equivalent to about a hundred 75 million dollars in investment to the state's land resources. vilsack says the goal in iowa is adding more access to programs.. and he plans to work with state partners in removing barriers and backlogs to other conservation

efforts.. if funding is maintained.. the u-s-d-a plans to expand access for a two hundred 50 million dollar investment. since 2009.. the u-s-d-a invested more than two billion dollars in iowa conservation.. enrolling four and a half million acres of iowa working lands into conservation. they report between 2008 and 2013.. iowaas contributed to a reduction of 260 million pounds of nitrogen and five hununed 34 million pounds of phosphorus in the mississippi rive basin. ---- livestock markets are a little sideways at the moment.. and it looks like the grain markets are still recovering from monday's loss.. "i was short corn, i was short soy meal. i got out too early so i'm neutral. they're probably headed lower. i don't see much bullish fundamental news to dictate.." "short term prices higher. south america's going to come in with 102 million metric tons. the commodity markets look very pessimistic cause i have very short positions and i'm long the u.s. dollar. i think the dollar
5:17 am
go higher. continues to put pressure on corn prices, wheat and soybeans. i'm not bullish at all." "eventually i think cattle is going lower i have no position. i'm not short or long but at these prices with the rest of the commodities including crude oil down another 1.50 today, it's going to be ry difficult to keep cattle prices up this high, especially after a 1500 point rally." "now i am short the hogs, but i am short e june contract. stay short, my stop is around 79, but stay short. i think hog prices are e o high compared to commodity markets as well. but, right now, we're going through some stiff resistance i think we'll be paid off in a week or two." ---- and that's all we have time for today, thanks for joining us. 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 3.38 oc webtease many dogs can get a cancer in their leg

so when one gets cancer - it's heartbreaking . but an experimental drug is helping them live longer. as martie salt tells us, it may be good news for children with cancer as well. ten-year-old harley doesn't move as fast as he did before he got osteosarcoma .a painful, cancerous tumor that grows in the bones. "it's just amazing to me what he's been through and that he's still our harley." dogs with osteosarcoma usual only have five months to live, but it hasn't claimed harley yet, thanks to a new vaccine. "the fact that these dogs are living, um, two, three, four, five times longer than the length they were expected to live is remarkable." what's even more exciting to doctors at penn vet is the logical next step, since these treatments work for dogs with cancer. ".then we will be
5:23 am
metastatic disease in children, and that is an amazing, amazing thing!" because dogs and humans share so many biological similarities, researchers think the vaccine that helped harley might also help a child with the same cancer. they're developing a protocol for a clinical trial to present to the f-d-a. "you're going to be putting the tv on someday and there's going to be some little kid standing there saying 'you know i'm still alive because of harley.'" "i mean if it c c help a child and my harley, was part of it, you know, that's just amazing to me." harley's owners are savoring every minute they have with him but they hope his legacy lives on by eventually giving a child a fighting chance at life. i'm martie salt reporting. trt 1.32 oc std. researchers hopopthe fda will allow the clinical trials for children to start by the end of 2016. law enforcement in eastern iowa is telling people to watch for fake $100 dollar bills. police are looking through security footage to try t tfind out who is passing the

5:29 am
he said he is confident he can, in his words, "beat this and be back to full speed soon." voters first elected latham to congress in the republican wave of 1994. due to reapportionm ent, latham's central iowa districts shifted on him from the 5th to the 4th to, finally, the 3rd district for his final term. latham retired in january of 2015. the powerball jackpot... escalated quickly. now the prize is the highest it has ever been. .o "jackpot winner" in wednesday's drawing -- that means saturday's jackpot will be worth about $675 million dollars. f while the jackpot winner will, eventually, bring home quite a haul -- some of thamoney doesn't go for prizes or the adminisisative costs. 25 cents of every dollar in iowa goes to the state's general fund. that fund goes toward different departments including education, law enforcement, and the iowa veterans trust fund. t t state has controlled lottery operations since 1985, and has granted $1.6 billion to these causes. "it was just being run by untoward organizations, think
5:30 am
weren't using the money for good causes. so states ststped in and said if this type of organization is going to exist we want the money to be used for good not bad." with an eye-popping jackpot from yesterday, it's another stretch of longer lines for the "powerball players". the odds remain the same, however, 1 in 292 million to win the big prize. yet the people we caught up with in cedar rapids take a moment to dream... "what if". "my winning ticket, hey!! what would i do? i would make sure all the people that are out here with signs have nice warm blankets and nice shoeoe for the winter." ckets are two dollars, and the drawing is on saturday. a powerball jackpot of about $700 million million $100 bills... telling people to "watch for fake $100 bills" that they'veveeen passed at area businesses over the past week.

also say they've also found several counterfeit bil. iowa city police showed us examples of the fake money. they say there are simple ways to identify a phony bill, such as with a black light. lieutenant mike brotherton says people can also use special pens with ink that turns brown on fake money, and yellow on real money. "if there's no way to check it aa you're uncertain, you should call the police department. we'd be happy to come check it out. we can certainly decipher if it's a counterfeit bill or not." lt brotherton says iowa city police will work with cedar rapids police, reviewing surveillance video from businesses where the bills have been used. he hopes that will lead them to a suspect. a north liberty jeweler says the current immigration system is keeping him from visiting his dying mother. harold van beek owns jewelry by harold and has been trying to become a u-s citizen for re than a decade. vavabeek says his e-2 visa lacks a stamp, which doesn't allow him to travel to see his 86-year-old mother. she was hospitalized for heart failure on new years

5:33 am
cool robot, even if he's science fiction. "we thought getting it to move would be like the easiest part. but, it was pretty tough." this one isn't, though. you're looking at the creation of three ui computer engineering students. they built this bot for a senior prect. the idea came from an ui doctor who said for years brain surgeons have faced a major annoyance in theer. "they use these big microscopes. they have these head pieces up here. when they're looking at the brain, they have to strain their neck and look through it."sometimes docs have to do that for up to ten hours. plus, surgeons have to try not to look away, for fear it would change what they're viewing. "this was definitely something that was needed. they're using very, very old microscopes." the robot is designed to replace all that. it's got cameras that can track specific spots in the brain, like a tumor for example. the images are sent up into a headset, which the surgeon can wear, meaning the doctor can move his or her head and not worry about losing what is being looking at. ct scans or mri images can be placed on top of the camera feed. and, here's the other cool thing, a hands free controller which allows the doc to adjust the bot without touching it. "they don't have to take their gloves off to move the robot around. it's all in the computer." these guys
5:34 am
together and wrote the computer code in a it's complete the prototype is good enough that patents have been filed. no longer science fiction. this droid is science "i've never heard of anything like this being done before. hopefully it helppeople in the future." you may have noticed a piece of tech in that the goggle headset the students are used is called the oculus rift. it's a virtual reality device for gaming that costs around $600 retail. it'll be available to the public later this year. kind of cool to see if this device catches on. yes, it's a neat invention .
