11:16 pm
get cheaper. officials in brazil expect coffee farmers to have a big harvest this season -- creating an oversupply of beans -- which means more of a drop in prices. but don't expect to save any money when you buy that high-end cup of joe. for a company like starbucks -- coffee beans only make up about 20 percent of its overall cost. other factors influencing the price you pay -- how much employees make. take home pay for baristas is going up. especially with more places across the country increasing the minimum wage. and starbucks is also paying tuition for 4- thousand employees. but you can trim your coffee budget -- without cutting the caffeine buzz. the most obvious -- brew at home. whole beans tend to be cheaper than pre- ground coffee. and an inexpensive coffee grinder can pay for itself fairly quickly. also -- buy that coffee in bulk for bigger savings. if you can't give up that daily coffee shop ritual -- look for gift cards on resale sites that you can buy at a discount. and loyalty programs -- like those from a smartphone app -- can come with perks. like a free drink every couple of weeks or so. plus -- don't forget to bring your own cup. many places offer a small discount if you have your own gear. who knows -- saving a

propro selection... this has happened to all of us. you hear a song and it gets stuck in your head for days. there's a reason for this. in tonight's medical minute... doctor sanjay gupta explores the impact of music on the brain. "we all have that song we just can't get out of our head, no matter how hard we try. it's called an ear worm and it's just one example of the extraordinary power of
11:19 pm
about music is just how much of the brain it activates beyond the auditory cortex the part of the brain that processes sound, music lights up the part of your brain that is involved in movement, attention, planning and memory. speaking the words for example comes from here, the left temporal lobe, putting them into a tune comes over here. the right parietal lobe and then putting it all into a rhythm over her the cerebellum. there are so many nuro networks involved in nuro processing, it illicit what it known as the amplifier effect. it's no emotional response and that's what makes it stick. studies show that kids who take music lessons didn't just get better at playing in instrument, their brains processed language better another recent study looked at patients who were about to undergo surgery, people were either given music or an anti anxiety drug. you can probably guess what happened, the people who listened to music has less anxiety and
11:20 pm
stress hormone cortisol than people who took drugs. it can be even bigger than that. you see music can unite our brains, but it can also unite the masses. we will willingly thrust ourselves into a crowd of 20,000 people and excite every aspect of our brain, for music. josh little is here now, with a preview of sports. the raiders will be back in oakland -- for at least one more season
