Anchor lead: As more Americans are becoming conscious of their weight, you would expect a new, less fat country. However, even as more Americans become fit, trends have not shifted. We go to Jordan Underwood news on how Americans are fatter now then ever before.

(VO :11)

The stereotype of the “fat” American is more true now then ever before as obesity levels continue to sky rocket throughout the country. Over the last 26 years, obesity has become one of the country’s primary problems 2nd only to smoking in preventable deaths in the U.S. but this doesn’t stop people from making a trip to McDonalds and other fast food joints.

(Ewout SOT/phoner :09)

Sales have increased I have noticed that. Food is cheaper, we have the dollar menu of course. However, the actual consumer is to blame because they should be making healthier choices and they should be capable of buying healthier food that isn’t expensive.

(VO/maps :09)

27 million Americans visit McDonalds everyday, which helps contribute to 60 million Americans over 20 being obese. This map shows that in 1985, states that registered with the CDC had average obese population around 10-14% whereas in 2010, numbers sky rocketed all over the country to now the average being 20% or more and all the way up to 25% here in Iowa.

(VO/vid/pictures :14)

As more adults lose control over their weight, more and more children are beginning to struggle with obesity as well. Now, more the 9 million children and teens from ages 9-16 are suffering from obesity, which is leading to increased health problems such as diabetes and hypertension due to poor dietary habits.

(VO/maps :11)

As shown by the childhood obesity map, every state is above 10% of total children population being fat with the average being in the 10-16% range which supports evidence for these continuing health problems. According to the CDC, 1 in 3 children are obese as well as 20% struggling with blood fat problems and 7% with cholesterol problems which are all increases from 20 years ago.

(Standup on camera :16)

McDonalds alone operates over 30,000 restaurants  in more then 100 countries world wide and as more people turn to these quick, unhealthy meals, obesity rates will continue to remain the same as well as rise in the U.S. and all throughout the world. This is Jordan Underwood, Daily Iowan TV.

VO

:11 seconds

Some things have never changed about the University of Iowa. They have always been in Iowa City, have always been black and gold and have always been the hawkeyes. However, one thing that has changed is the percentage of out of state students. The amount has risen 3% over the past 4 years, but some feel this is no different then any other year.

:11 seconds

For the 2011-2012 school year, 45% of students came to the University of Iowa from out of state, which is up from 43% the previous year. With the increase in numbers, recruiting students has become a central theme in filling the halls of the academic buildings.

:11 seconds

186,000 students filled out applications to be admitted to the University for this academic year and this number continues to grow. As more and more students fill out applications, recruiting methods have to keep up.

1:30

Anchor Lead: Americans in our consumer culture shop and spend money all the time, but on no other day is there more spending then on Black Friday. Stores nation wide shifted their opening times and specials on Thursday and Friday and this led to record amounts of spending. With the latest news, we go to Jordan Underwood.

(VO :12)

Shoppers all across the country flocked to local stores and malls to take advantage of Black Friday specials. Stores from Coach to Gap all the way to Wal-Mart shifted their plan of action by opening their doors the night before Black Friday on Thanksgiving and placing deals on items during their night time sales and this led to record amounts of shoppers. This made it hard for everyone to move around and get what they wanted.

(Keith SOT :10)

There was just tons of people there were long lines. Just mass amounts of people waiting to get their purchases or items they wanted.

(VO/graphic :29)

Keith was not the only one who ventured out on Thursday night as several millions of people joined him in the spending party known as Black Friday. Over 26 million Americans went out during the period between Thursday night and early Friday morning and they spent a record amount of around $52.4 billion on Black Friday specials. This averages about $398.62 spent per person during this period of time, which is also a record.

(VO :09)

Contributing to these numbers were the amount of people who took advantage of online Black Friday deals in order to stay away from the crowds who went to the stores themselves. All these numbers combined were 6% higher then last year, which makes it the single highest person and dollar total spent in one day in our history.

(Stand up on camera :18)

I am standing outside Wal-Mart, where shoppers packed this parking lot to take advantage of Black Friday deals. Whether it was braving the elements and crowds by going shopping at similar stores carrying Black Friday specials, or staying in the comfort of your own home and making online purchases, shoppers nation wide proved this Black Friday will live in infamy for years to come . . .at least until next year.

Anchor Lead: We may think choosing  a college is easy, but many students from other countries are having to make the decision to come to America for our school everyday. Jordan Underwood talked to one such student

1:54

(VO)

College is no simple task. But what if I had to tell you that you have to learn English, a new culture and meet new people all in the span of a few months? That’s exactly what Fernando Bandiera had to do and he’s not the only one. U of I just celebrated its 40 yr anniversary for its international program and this past year, where they admitted around 500 international students.

(SOT)

I decided to come to the U.S. because the American universities are really good and Iowa has a good program of business.

(VO)

Fernando tries to cope by doing many things, but playing soccer is one of his favorite activities to remember his home, because in Brazil, it is a very popular way to hang out with friends and meet new people.

(SOT)

It help me remember my home because I used to play all the time in Brazil and like every Brazilian we usually always hang out with our friends and play some soccer.

(VO)

He notes that he tries to play at least two times a week with the Iowa City Soccerholics at the new rec center on Wednesdays and Fridays as well as trying to play in between his classes. He also tries to continue his passion for DJing which he started at a young age.

(SOT)

I have been DJing since I am like 15 years old and I played a lot in Brazil and I really like playing.

(VO)

He owns a personal DJ board and equipment and he uses his DJing as a way to relax after a stressful day or just to blow off steam after the rigors of class. On top of all this, he still yearns for home and tries to visit as much as he can.

(SOT)

Yeah every time that I can I always go in January and every break that I have I go back to Brazil.

(Anchor Tag)

Fernando Bandiera isn’t the only international student you will see running around on campus this semester and as the University celebrates its 40 year anniversary of its international program, more international students will continue to fill the University. In the basement of the Papajohn Business Building, this is Jordan Underwood, Daily Iowan TV.

Script

1:23

Anchor Lead

NBA labor talks wear on and with the latest update, we go to Jordan Underwood for the inside scoop.

 

First VO :13

And thou shalt not play! Is the cry heard throughout the National Basketball Association as players and owners are in strict disagreement over money, salary caps and basketball revenue causing fans to become distant.

SOT 1 Tim Reed :08

Its more discouraging that it sounds like they are going to cancel the entire season so I’ll probably be watching a lot more college basketball and hockey this winter

Second VO :10

According to figures released by the NBA, the league made $4 billion in revenue last season, along with improved ratings for all TV partners. With no NBA, Comcast Sports Net feels they are in trouble.

Phoner Kevin Anderson :23

In regards to how it effects us, its gonna stink in terms of those games we don’t have certaintly those playoff games we don’t have because we have the first round on our air a lot of ad revenue is not going to be generated by not having those games are ratings are going to be down. It stinks, I wish we had basketball to talk about right now.

Final VO :11

Most recent talks have boiled down to owners proposing a 50/50 split for basketball related income or BRI which was significantly lower amount then the 57% the players already had in the prior agreement

Stand Up

As players and owners continue to argue about money, not only are they hurting themselvers, but they are hurting their fans as well. This is Jordan Underwood, Daily Iowan TV.

Eat, Study, Sleep- Trey Controversy September 6, 2011

One of two cafeterias at the University of Iowa, Burge provides a quick way for east campus students to grab a bite before running off to class. The cafeteria provides a plethora of food ranging from pizza to salad as well as a place to relax in between classes. One aspect that has remained unchanged over the last few years is the heavy use of trays by students and members of the community in order to get more bang for their buck by stuffing as much food on their trays as possible. However, little known to the public, the student government has introduced a bill that would completely remove trays from the cafeterias in order to cut down on waste and save hundreds of gallons of water every semester. Even though the bill has been passed, the treys remain, which has sparked controversy across campus and as more people pile into the cafeterias, the trays will continue to pile up and the debate will rage on.
