>> 2015 less than a week away people are considering their resolutions. >> try to load -- lose weight. do well in school, quit smoking altogether. what's less popular is actually succeeding in any of your resolutions through the next year. so here's some of the tips to stay on track. first of all don't call eight resolution. don't try to. you're trying to change your way
of thinking by making whatever you're doing a permanent lifestyle change. not something you try out for week or two. don't try to do too much at once you're not going to lose 20 pounds in a week or so. then you feel like a failure and also write down what you want to accomplish. by and large when you look at people six months and a year later evaluate how well they did on new year's resolutions, typically they're not wildly successful. >> experts say the best way to stay on track with your goals tell people about it. it's a huge motivation factor. much better than keeping it all inside to yourself. >> time now for knocking the king. >> hey howard i'm dan from old city. i heard what you had to say about philadelphia sports. >> i never thought it would be this bad. eagles out of the playoffs. think about that. that's bad enough. but now we have to watch the 76ers.

years away. that's my point. the eagles will be the next team to win championship but without them, we're sunk for another year. you can keep on trying to knock the king. and i'll talk to you again next week. ♪ >> you've been doing a great job keep them coming your chance to knock the king. very simple record a video post it on facebook, twitter or instagram use that hash tag fox 29 weekend or pick up your phone one-800-292-9369. go ahead. your turn to knock the king. hey, genius. >> hey genius. we always argue when is the worst time in philly sports. i don't know if it's worse than normal. all right. this cat a woman has so many people. out in kansas city ex communicated from the church. she says she's sad but she's not backing down from the decision that got her kicked out. how this woman wants to make history. >> here's another one of your requests. we love when you play along with our weekend and make your

going to allow you to communicate with other parents in their school. other people in your community to find out what's going around. so somebody can say i just took mary to the body trig, she's positive for strep or johnny has the flu, so that you can potentially track and report back to your pediatrician what you think your child might have. >> how about when we have to wait when we get to the hospital? is there something that can make that a little bit easier? >> yes. in 2015 you'll see this happening in more and more hospitals much it's call the ease app. so this was developed by two doctors. and what this does it allows communication from the operating room to the parents or any family member so the family members download this app for free. they can receive text messages from the circulating nurse. they can receive anything, pictures. whatever is happening in the or can be transmitted directly to the parents immediately. so that really does ease that stress. it's like snap chat. it's hipaa compliant.
those pictures will disappear. in 20 veep they're hoping to expand this to cardiac surgery first because those can be very lengthy procedures, you know, transplants and various things can be very, very, you know, troublesome to people that are waiting for their loved ones. and then expand out even more. potentially to emergency departments. so again i would look for that ease app to be hitting other hospitals next year. >> all right. dr. joe, thank you. interesting stuff. >> yes, thank you. >> we appreciate it. thank you for jingoes for fox 29 weekend. >> flu is up in penn. the virus is affecting health of the state. more than 5,000 people have gotten sick as of last week. allegheny county had the most concerned cases with more than 800 officials say most people don't get medical attention so the numbers don't show all the likely cases. flu season runs from october through may. >> there is catholic woman out in kansas city so many people
