getting in bed to cuddle with a stranger might sound a little strange. it's not about romance... a "professional cuddler" in bismarck, north dakota says the sessions are about the healing power of touch therapy. megan hahn has more...
12:12 pm
the reason that is, is because the physical touch of cuddling helps lower your blood pressure. i do offer back scratches just because who doesn't love a good back scratch. which i'm not a licensed massage therapist, just like something you'd receive from a significant other" while hugs for hire may seem like a strange concept, amberrose says many people simply need the companionship. "when i had a client at the baptist home, actually the resident over there, at night she would cry. you know, pain medicine can only do so much. pain medicine can't relieve the heart. it can't relieve that loneliness and you know, i would go in there and she would talk about her family and i would massage her legs for her. everyone from young to old needs this, regardless of where you are in life." she says more and more calls are coming in, and she plans to open a store this spring. "what it would be is just a very relaxed environment where someone could come in after work. instead of going for a beer after work, you can cuddle someone. i feel like it would give the same effect but you don't have to worry

warm heart amberrose shares, she hopes to drive home the concept of hugs, as a form of therapy. all clients go through a strict screening process, before they sign up for services. amberrose visits the clients in their homes and the typical sessions

what you're drinking before or after your workout may impact how you recover... when we come back...an inside look
12:17 pm
recover from intense training or competition.... your activity level determines what you should really be drinking....
12:18 pm
if you're feeling fatigued, sore or worn out during or after excercise, what you're drinking may be to blame. "we're losing sweat, so we're losing some electrolytes out of that sweat. so, we need to replenish those just so we can stay on top of our game." when your workout lasts less than an hour, registered dietitian, kelsey herrick, says water will suffice. "it helps to prevent dehydration, so it can keep you focused on your event or your workout. staying hydrated is key to helping your body recover properly. "a good indicator of hydration status, too, to make sure that you're well hydrated is that your urine is more that pale lemonade color rather than apple juice." but, sometimes water just won't cut it. "i would encourage people to have a sports drink for anything that is intense or anything lasting over an hour for your exercise." after your workout is finished, replenishing your body doesn't stop there. "with the protein bar, it's giving you some protein, but we still want to make sure that you're still

most of us use the lock screens on phones to keep out the bad guys .. but what if it's the good guys who need vital information to save your life? "we're the first ones there, so from a medical standpoint, it's vital." turns out, that information can be easily accessed on your smartphone. on iphones, it's right there in the bottom left-hand corner of the locked screen....the word 'emergency'. tap on it and a keypad pops up for a quick call to, say, 911. "or, if you're unconscious, someone else ...like a paramedic...can tap on "medical id" below the keypad..and up pops info on yourself that could prove crucial." it's a standard app on iphones.. where you input whatever info you deem important.. like your name, the person to call in case of emergency... your height, weight and, most importantly... medical conditions. "if you have epilepsy, we want to know that. if you have preexisting heart condition, if you have strokes, if you are diabetic, all of those major medical situations, which could actually determine the outcome of why you're having the medical emergency in the first place."

good afternoon.. this is the agribusiness report.. i'm david geiger. cattle futures were added to a system that caps how many orders traders can send.. in relation to the number of trades executed. the c-m-e groups made these changes in time for futures trading yesterday to curb volatility.. the move was a response to a national cattlemen's beef association meeting last week.. where chairman terry duffy heard complaints. i talked to market analyst jamey kohake with paragon investments.. he says it started a little over a year ago where limit moves started up a volatile cattle market.. wrecking balance sheets because of robot trading.. "and that's what everyone's so disgusted over. was people losing the generation of wealth over robots in new york and/or chicago. push these markets over based on no fundamentals at all. so they're talking about putting circuit breakers in to limit that. so we don't have these big extreme moves. there was also talk to over how do we link these future
12:38 pm
i'll have kohake's analysis on today's market in a bit.. but first.. china might open their ports to u-s beef again.. in 2003 the country closed down imports because of the mad cow disease.. but the u-s meat export federation predicts china will open the market fully by the middle of the year. in 2006 china lifted the ban on some boneless products.. and from 2010 to 2015.. imports increased ten times what it was.. china is already the biggest u-s ag export customer.. rabobank says its beef consumption will keep expanding in the next ten years to about two point two million tons.. domestic production is only forecast to meet 80 percent of that.. the grains are getting a little bit of a rally.. jamey kohake explains.. "i'm very surprised, you look at the stock markets we are down hard. all of that negativity, though, not spilling over into the ag sector." "corn a penny higher right nearby the resistance. beans as
12:39 pm
through it too this morning. what we're getting is large funds, large speculators are rolling out of their short futures positions and buying puts and selling puts instead. and right now it's just funds want to limit risk, specs want to limit risk and getting on the futures and rolling onto option strategies." "we opened up higher in the cattle, didn't look too bad early on. we're kind of fizzling out right now. it's kind of a mixed trade, real light volume, getting some weakness from the outside markets with the equities i don't think we're going to see any cash being reported again until late friday afternoon." "april contracts, playing around with the 200 day moving average which is very pivotal for a lot of fund traders. see if we'll close before that and see more long liquidation the market is trending toward an overbought scenario. we've been really on this rip-roaring rally roughly 10 dollars. so a minor, little setback that would not mean a whole
