BY BRICE SANDER ANCHOR ALEX ROZIER You're watching multisource entertainment news analysis from Newsy She’s got looks. She’s got talent. She’s an Oscar nominee. And she’s going to play Katniss Everdeen? In a surprise move, studio execs tapped Winter’s Bone star Jennifer Lawrence to headline the film adaptation of Suzanne Collin’s megahit book trilogy, The Hunger Games. (TV Guide) As soon as Lawrence landed the role, fan feedback flooded the blogosphere. Some people weren’t too excited to see a 20-something blonde bombshell land the role of a ballsy brunette- but a writer for MTV reminds us of a casting controversy that surrounded another film franchise. “And, as many [Young Adult] enthusiasts may recall, fans were initially hesitant to accept Robert Pattinson in the role of ‘Twilight’ leading man Edward Cullen, and now Twilighters can't imagine anyone else as their vampire hero.” So now that Lawrence is locked in, who’s joining her on screen? The rumor is Weeds star Hunter Parrish, Beastly’s Alex Pettyfer and The Kids are All Right’s Josh Hutcherson are duking it out to land the male lead. ClevverTV argues, if fans aren’t too crazy about Lawrence playing Katniss, Parrish could be the perfect consolation prize. “Now fans of The Hunger Games Trilogy have been very open on Twitter about wanting Hunter in the role. This support seems to be very flattering for the Weeds star, who told E! he feels honored to just sort of be thought of. And legit fans will love this, too- he has indeed read all of the books himself, so he’s ready to go.” And Indy Mogul’s Grace Randolph points out the studio might want to steer clear of Pettyfer after his flick “I Am Number Four” bombed at the box office. “But how can Lionsgate be so sure that The Hunger Games will succeed where I Am Number Four did not? Already there are red flags. First, while Collins is adapting her own novels, for the screen, Gary Ross has been chosen to direct. Ross is a famous screenwriter who’s only directed two movies – Pleasantville and Seabiscuit. It’s never a good sign when Hollywood decides to let a favorite son cut his teeth on a big project, instead of getting someone with actual genre experience.” But E! Online asks, who cares about the cast or the director? “We’re talking about children fighting to the death in giant outdoor cage matches, while simultaneously struggling with love triangles and genetically engineered predators. Really. What’s not to love?” Filming begins this summer, but you’ll have to wait until March 2012 to see The Hunger Games hit the big screen.

BY JENNIFER MECKLES You're watching multisource US video news analysis from Newsy. It used to be a celebrated milestone for parents -- your child turns a year old and you turn the car seat to face forward. A few years later, time for a booster seat -- then eventually a real seat belt. But now the American Academy of Pediatrics -- or AAP -- is pushing back all those traditional transitions -- saying kids need to wait longer. And that could mean major headaches for parents. HLN explains the new rules: “Pediatricians now say you should keep toddlers in the rear facing seat until at least until they’re two. It used to be until they’re one, or twenty pounds. Also experts are saying, kids should ride in booster seats until they are at least 8 years old and 4 feet, 9 inches tall.” Most media outlets reported this story with a proper car-seat buckling demonstration, explaining it’s all about size and weight. CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta uses a real toddler to show how -- the smaller the kid, the more at risk they are for injury. “What they're saying, though, if you look at a rear-facing car seat, if there's an accident, the force is sort of distributed across the body as opposed to just on the head here. That's what they say makes all the difference.” The AAP also recommends new rules for the older kids, specifically -- children up to age 13 should remain in the back seat. And that’s where the headaches come in... A doctor on Chicago’s WFLD tells parents -- good luck enforcing that one: DR. SALZMAN: “The other recommendation is that children 13 years and younger should try to remain in the back seat. [laughs] Try to tell a 13-year-old to remain in the back seat. I don’t know you’ll get that.” ANCHOR: “That's the one that parents probably have the most trouble with.” DR. SALZMAN: “Yes. You don't want to cut corners. One of the physicians interviewed said -- broccoli is negotiable. This is negotiable. But safety is not negotiable. We're talking about life and death stuff here.” While most parents understand that -- it’s not making THEIR jobs any easier. Whether dealing with toddlers or teenagers, here are just a few responses to the new guidelines: A writer for Stroller Traffic tweets: “Seriously? I can't imagine keeping my son in a rear-facing car seat until he's 2. Ugh. I mean, I get it. But, UGH.” A Dallas mother debates both sides on MyDFWMommy blog: “On one hand, I am saddened because babies seem so much happier when they can see the world the way we do... On the other hand, if rear facing is safer, I want my baby as safe as possible!” And a writer for BlogHer has concerns about booster seats for 12-year olds: “I'm not saying that I don't value my kids' safety. I do. But with safety seats ‘expiring’ after five years... it can get pricey to keep a genetically small-boned, shorter child in a seat until that age.” Still on the fence? In a last ditch effort to convince parents, the New York Times tells the story of how one family’s strict car seat rules saved their children’s lives: “The couple and their three children … were broad-sided by a car that had had a blowout. Their minivan flipped into the air, sailed over three lanes of traffic and landed on the shoulder, upside down... they found ... all three children suspended upside down, still securely strapped in their car seats.” TIME reports all states already have laws in place requiring car seats up to age four -- but the new policy means those laws will be out of date. So what do you think? Are the new rules helpful -- or just a headache? Follow Newsy on Twitter Newsy_Videos for daily updates in your stream. Get more multisource US video news analysis from Newsy.

*******treatmentforheartburn**** Acid reflux is something many people struggle with regularly. Some people even struggle with it on a daily basis. There are acid reflux remedies out there that can offer some relief. Typically acid reflux is due to eating certain foods that trigger it. However, acid reflux can also be genetic, so no matter what is eaten the person will struggle with the condition. This is common in older people, however younger people and even teenagers can have acid reflux. This is something that can affect anyone and thankfully they are some simple ways to deal with it.One of the simpler acid reflux remedies is to sprinkle cinnamon on some toast and eat the toast. Cinnamon tastes great and eating it sprinkled on toast is something many people certainly don't mind. So, this is preferable as it tastes good and it works. *******treatmentforheartburn****

BY MOLLY BOLAND ANCHOR ALEX HOLLEY You're watching multisource science video news analysis from Newsy New information in the world of health might prove a common cause of death - Atherosclerosis -- also known as the hardening of arteries, is not just a modern disease. A recent discovery showed the disease has been -- well … hiding under wraps. “It turns out heart disease has been a problem for thousands of years. Recently researchers took a closer look at a 3,500-year-old mummy and found out this Egyptian princess along with more than a dozen other mummies suffered from a buildup of plaque in the arteries.” (KNVX) In today’s world, fatty foods, smoking, and a lifestyle lacking exercise can all lead to heart disease. But for ancient Egyptians, without automobiles, people exercised often. They ate fruits, vegetables and lean meat. But if this same disease was common even in that lifestyle, doctors are wondering if they’re missing something. The LA Times quotes researcher and cardiologist Gregory S. Thomas on the study. “It may be that humans ‘are predisposed to atherosclerosis … that it is part of our genetic makeup.’" Researchers scanned nearly fifty mummies -- about half showed signs of hardening arteries. Almost all of them were from ancient Royal families. Bloomberg quotes cardiologist Randall Thompson on this factor. “The specimens had all been members of the upper class when alive, so they may have suffered from the same higher standard of living that affects humans today. They ate more meat than most of the population and were likely less active than the common laborer of the period...” The Kansas City Star reports most people today - have some form of the condition by their fifties. Egyptians were also more likely to experience Atherosclerosis with age. Cardiologists say infections or malaria could be responsible. Science Magazine explains and quotes one of them... “‘...all that infection might have really revved up the [ancient Egyptians'] inflammatory response,’ … Inflammation helps to remove the agents of infection and promote healing, but older individuals may have paid a steep price for it: high levels of inflammatory response can contribute to the development of atherosclerosis.” Scientists say the next step is to scan more mummies from lower classes in Egypt and identify original risk factors of the heart disease and how they’ve changed over time.

*******www.forexbot37**** - FOREX ROBOT. 100% FREE FOREX Trading Software. Forex trading is a huge industry nowadays. There are gigantic fortunes that are gained each day by successful traders. Unfortunately a lot of people that don't know what they are doing are losing lots of money also. If it were easy, everyone would do it, right? Recently a few companies have come out with what they call Forex robot traders. What they are, are robots, or better yet computers, that do all the calculations of when to buy and sell. It's supposed to take all the guess work out of the equation for you. You just set up the program and put it on auto pilot and watch the cash just pour into your bank account. Ahh, if only it were that simple. I won't lie, these robots are pretty good and you can make money with them, but they also, like anything, do have their flaws. Here are a few that I have discovered. First, MT4 robot systems work only on MT4, while the services that have an auto alerting buy/sell system are not limited to any particular platform. Second, MT4 EA's are based on pure mathematical formulas (mostly they are combinations of simple and exponential averages). Forex auto alerting is a self-learning system based on neural networks and genetic algorithms and as input it takes a lot of parameters (such as the day of the week, part of the year, other currencies prices, gold price, oil price, holidays, etc.). MT4 EA's can't do it (or maybe they can, but they don't as it's a very complicated schema requiring a high computational power, which is impossible to obtain on a home PC). EA's usually take in account only the history of the given pair and that's all. We believe that the market can't be described with such a simple math model with one parameter only. It's a non-linear system like weather or flowing water. While the robots are great, they are limited in what they can do. I'd suggest a program that will give you ready-to-use Forex trading signals. Using them you can make money on Forex without thinking. This is most efficient and modern money making methods today. It can be used by anybody in all countries of the world. All you need is access to Internet few times a week, few minutes each time. That's all. That way you can capture the the entire Forex market, not just the MT4 systems.

BY LIZ REED You're watching multisource health news analysis from Newsy Dentists and doctors are warning -- think twice before gettin’ down. A new study suggests oral sex is the leading cause of oral cancer in non-smoking men in the U.S.. But how does sex lead to cancer? It’s a nasty sexually transmitted virus called HPV. Right now, about 20 million Americans have HPV, but because many never see symptoms, many don’t know they have it. KDSK breaks it down: Repoter: “When an HPV infection doesn't clear, or you're exposed multiple times by multiple partners, some people will go on to develop genital warts, or even cancer. Doctor: "The more times you are exposed, the greater the chance that you may develop cancer, just from a probability statement." KOIN identifies teen sexual attitudes as the source of the rapid spread. One dentist tells them if society doesn’t change, we’ll be dealing with a pandemic. Reporter: “Many teenagers who engage in oral sex don’t consider it to be real sex and view it as more casual. Dr. Oh says if that doesn’t change it might lead to a HPV epidemic and more cases of oral cancer.” Dentist: “80% of the population will eventually have HPV which is very scary to think about.” Dentist News Network reveals the biggest threat facing oral cancer patients are the dentists. Those who only perform selective cancer screenings based on common risk factors like age and genetics don’t realize the HPV threat. “Unfortunately, pre-screening still occurs in many dental offices because professionals are unaware of the new risk factor, HPV. And although it was reasonable in the past to pre-screen based on common risk factors, HPV now debunks this concept since HPV causes cancer in individuals that do not have the traditional risk factors. Everyone is at risk.” But if HPV vaccines have been approved since 2006, why wasn’t there a bigger push to get teens vaccinated? A contributor for AOL scrutinizes the manufactures’ one-sided view of the issue: “The massive push to vaccinate girls and women between the ages of 11 and 26 against HPV should have included boys and men from the beginning... But at the time [the vaccine] was licensed, there wasn't such an awareness about head or oral cancers or a willingness to accept that males played a part in the transmission of the virus.” According to the Center for Disease Control, only half of people who've been diagnosed with oral cancer will live longer than five years.

BY STEVEN SPARKMAN ANCHOR JIM FLINK You're watching multisource science news analysis from Newsy. Robots are showing us how to be nice. A new study using robots tackles a longstanding theory on the evolution of altruism. A writer for io9 explains the theory, which attempts to answer why we help others at our own expense. “Altruism seems to be counter-intuitive from an evolutionary perspective, because it means helping people who won't necessarily improve your chances to survive. But there is an evolutionary logic, described in what's known as Hamilton's rule: you'll help people in your family, because they pass on your genetic material, too.” The rule predicts that the more closely related a group is, and the lower the cost to the individual versus the gain to the group, the more likely altruistic behavior will evolve. Those values are hard to measure in nature, but much easier for researchers to control in the digital world. “We decided to use small robots to test the different rates of genetic relatedness in a population of robots, and the different costs and benefits that these robots can actually get by cooperating together to push small objects to a nest.” (Video source: Federal Polytechnic School of Lausanne in Switzerland (EPFL)) This isn’t the first time these researchers have taught robots how to work together. In previous experiments, robots learned to cooperate when foraging for food. In the new study, the robots forage solo, but have to decide whether to keep all the food for themselves or to share it with the whole group. The researchers tweaked the costs and benefits of sharing to see how it affected the groups’ altruism. (Video Source: Plos One) After 500 generations of robots passing on their genes in a sped-up simulation, the researchers were able to see if the rule’s predictions held up. DailyTech reports: “...the researchers observed when robots would share, when they wouldn't, and what the consequences were for both options. The results of the study showed that Hamilton's rule of kin selection was exactly right. Groups of robots that were related shared the seed, and the family became strong and was able to pass its code to the next generation.” So if robots can evolve to be altruistic, maybe they aren’t plotting to enslave us after all.

*******www2.dupont****/Food__Innovations/en_GB/food-safety/microbial-identification.html?src=fdemea_uk_dst_saf DuPont Senior Research Fellow John Steichen discusses the innovative microbial identification process behind the DuPont Qualicon Riboprinter®. The Riboprinter is a product that can look at the genetic characteristics of an organism in a food sample and find out if that has ever been seen before in a particular plant through a previous analysis. It's a way of identifying a specific subtype of an organism and determining whether it's ever been observed before. That's very important in tracking the source of a contamination in a food-processing flow or identifying where in the world that pathogen might have come from.
