6:39 am
gainesville. go gators. now i'm at asu, so go sun devils. i've been around. >> i wouldn't call it lying about it. if you like your team, you like your team. i don't think you say you like some other team. you think a lot of guys would lie about that? >> i wouldn't think so either. but apparently the survey says so. >> so maybe it's women. it could be that people think they're sports fans and lying about being sports fans saying they lik >> my husband is from ohio. but he's lived in chicago. so he loves the bears. as a kid, he loved the cowboys. now he loves the cardinals. i mean, you know. >> he doesn't love the browns ? >> he does too, he loves the buckeyes more than the browns. i will tell you that. 6:39, still ahead on 12 today, could ipads be as good for your kids as medication? a new study that could change your opinion about kids and screen time.

6:43 am
this back up is three miles long all the way to the 143. team 12 is on top of this. crystal henderson will tell you how to get around it and when we expect the interstate to open up again. that's coming up in minutes. time for your morning mix. she may have been the most infamous sex tape of all time this morning but she's changing her tune. 15 time playboy cover model pamela anderson urging people to now stay away from perform. in a wall week anderson labeled porn as something for losers. simply put, we must educate ourselves and our children to understand that porn is for losers, a boring, wasteful, and dead end out let for people too lazy to reap the ample rewards of healthy sexuality. okay guys, got to get your opinion on this.
6:44 am
hypocrisy. of all the things that might go away, that will never go away. >> at the same time, just to play devil's advocate with you that someone later in life whether or not has grown up and matured a little bit can look back and reflect on things and maybe have a change of heart or a change of mind. >> i agree that's the case. even when you watch movies, i like to this is something that's been rampant throughout society. a lot of times they say does society mimic hollywood or does hollywood mimic society. we think about when we talk about porn and bringing up prostitution as one of the oldest businesses, quote unquote in the world, it's been around for a long time. i agree, you get older. >> you learn from your lessons, but for her to come out and villainize it like that.
6:45 am
crack babies of porn. [ laughter ] all right then pamela anderson. okay next in your morning mix. we're switching topics here. this might have caught your eye. children may become more relaxed in certain situations when they use technology. researchers found ipads work just as well as medication to calm kids nerves before surgery. half took a sedative. the other half were given an ipad to distract them. thi effects and were easy to give anesthesia too. >> i could totally see this. there's something about the ipad. my twins are only two now. but there's a difference between an ipad and a tv. there's something mesmerizing about it. you're literally just lost in it. if mama wants to cook, i will tell you, here you go, just so i can have that half hour of getting my stuff down.
6:46 am
fears or concerns or what have you, you need it. >> interesting study. good stuff there. crystal is back with your traffic and how to get around that mess on the 202. >> were you about to hop on the 202 westbound? look what you're up against here. bail out of there. don't wait until the last exit like the rest of these cars and drivers that probably did not wake up watching 12 today because they would have had the heads up and they wouldn't be late for work like they are now. getting even longer. so you can do what i did this morning. it only added two minutes to my ride. and that is from the 202 westbound. take that sky harbor exit. go 143 southbound. jump on the 10 westbound. a little modest slowing on the 10 westbound because of rush hour. take the 17 at the split or continue on the 10 and then from there, you can exit and make your way to the office
6:47 am
westbound to the 10. there's a couple hit and miss spots there because of rush hour slowing it down into the 30s. but no big deal compared to the parking lot on the 202 westbound. if you're headed eastbound on the 10, there's a crash just passed dieshard. keep right you'll get around that. then you'll run into a little trouble here. it looks like drivers are hitting the brakes making their way downtown because of good speed readings there in the 20s on the 101 eastbound between the 17 and the 51. taking a look ahead into the south 7:00 hour, we have speeds in the 30s for the 10 and the 17. not moving on the 202 westbound. and we have 20s on the 10 westbound. over to you. thank you crystal. jimmy q is having fun hanging out at the wigwam right now. how's it going?
