local families took home goody bags... as well as brand new shoes, hats, socks d mittens. " we get volunteers coming year after year, some of the volunteers here today, they received shoes when they were children at the age of five and now they're in their sixties so it's pretty amazing." jessica rae: volunteers for the event included high school students, local athletes and law enforcement. this event has been going strong for 73 years.... jessica rae: its become one of the most popular items during this christmas season ...drones the flying gadgets can take stunning photographs from the air or even shoot perfect video for that holiday memory. but there are... also a lot of things you shouldn't be doing.... and with the f-a-a pushing for new regulations on the use of the buzzing aircraft ... a lot of changes are on the horizon. abc9 news reporter lukas voss has more nats: drone explaining buying a u-a-s for christmas don't really know what that is? chances are you do know ... and you are

unmanned aircraft systems ... or more commonly referred to as drones. they are becoming the hottest tech gadget to have. around 700 thousand are expected to sell this christmas season alone. and while some might think they are a recent phenomenon ... they have actually been around since the 1930's. popular now ... because of one simple reason. sot: " it's only been in the last several year that our technoly has reall gotten to where to cost is really affordable to the average 60 dollars and i can have a drone that has a reasonable picture and i can fly it really easily." while easily bought at your favorite federal aviation administartion has been facing with drones flying shouldn't and there is a couple of easy remember. greenscreen walk: there are up to 900 prosecutions a month for drone users failing to comply with f-a-a regulations. let's look
6:03 am
don't fly over 400 feet ... that's when you could affect small aircraft traffic. stay 5 miles away from any airport ... that includes non- manned airfields like martin airfield in south sioux city. avoid big crowds or public spaces ... it's simply a safety concern when flying over things like parades and other public gatherings...and one that is often not considered... if your property is listed on the f-a-a's website as a no fly zone ... which you can register yourself ... then anyone flying over it ... is considered trespassing. vo: commercial drone flying has always been regulated. if you flying commercially ... you have to be registered as a commercial pilot, something experts think is simply not doable in private use. nats: explaining and drone flying sot: "everyone recognizes that's not a realistic expectation. there is a big demand for drone pilots and the level of training that airline pilots get is far in excess of what a drone pilot needs." what could be in effect soon ... is the faa's registration guideline for users. a web based system would assign each drone a number. e adress and name would be recorded ... any u-a-s between 55 pounds and half-a- pound would need to be registered. even with these guidelines, there is still a lot of room for interpretation when it comes to the handling unmanned aircraft.
6:04 am
"the struggle right now is where do we draw the line. what drones do weare about that potentialy cause some issues and what drones do we not worry about. the reality is that if we try to register all 70000 drones that are predicted to be sold this christmas season ... who is going to be able to keep track of all of that." jessica rae: the f-a-a is pushing for regulations to be in effect in time for the christmas season. and while they are confident their suggestions will create a better understanding for consumers ... experts think there is still a lot of room for improvement. "nats singing " jessica rae: what you just heard were the beautiful sounds of the season.... as performed by the mona shores high school singing christmas

the same amount of calories, and expect to burn off the same amount of calories. so dr joyce says there are two types of exercises, anaerobic and aerobic exercises... although it's good to perform both types of exercise, as we age, it's more important to focus on a specific one. joyce: "but really it is the aerobic capicity that we should be working on so that is again, the walking, jogging, biking, swimming, and that sorts of things and those can all be done middle age or older age, we just have to realize our bodies limits. rae: dr joyce also says preparing our bodies for a slower basal metabolic rate, starts early on... joyce: "we should start improving our life style changes probably in our 20s, even teens, and we know that kids aren't as active as they should be, so we should start preaching it then. but as far as being aware of our basal metabolic rate and our slowing metabolism probably in your 40s is wn you're going to start really noticing thatnd that's when we should be aware of it and really concerned on making lifestyle changes before that so they're already engraved." and next week on get going...
