Nine minutes after 5 AM at the early edition WWL for listeners it's August it's the twentieth it's 2013. And it today we'd like to call not to Monday. Welcomed Tuesday mr. Miller. I have open house at one of my kids' schools. And I can week ago. Open house which you do to win your looking at a potentials. He would open house -- your kids already enrolled in the school. In every year every school has an open for the parents in the closet and that is cool. Open house and teachers tell you what they expect of the students -- regular about this class is your kids are taking it back to school that's on the open man. There has been every year my life for. Decades. Has big time and the its school open house tonight. Have a conflict in vocabulary but OK if they -- called open house on well maybe maybe private schools on open house because it's like when -- -- you have an open house it's when people come dental. Clients guests at the customers. That in public schools open houses at night when parents -- and find out what is going on it. Here's the problem all the parents like to use open houses. Parent teacher conference. And they wanna go and ask the teacher how -- kids doing yet the teachers. And we just start I didn't know me and even your kids -- Edmonds school week. And and that what you get is this conflict of the teachers just trying to give you. In -- of them PowerPoint you know they can't go -- things that -- there website that you either email that they home Arctic it's gonna have all but. Anyway. Yeah it's company and it's it's it's it's kind of parental. Expectation that the -- -- things that discount -- list of what she'd do. I'd definitely change every year and mine. In imperfect world. I never have to talk to my -- teacher again. -- like it is not a behavior problem like it does have stroke struggle with the grades they never have to call me and my kids just as well on. Parent teacher conferences and a system. That I enjoy that that that that. Anyways I've got that to look forward. Tonight and I'm excited as -- can be forced to. Social media avenue report right here. In my hand. That finds that. If you were workers. Our friend in the -- On social media. Those that are realized -- do that the -- you know load pictures of them from college with. I'd be -- now okay now. We all lower army yet yet there's certain things perhaps you don't want your boss to see. About your personal life but it raises an interesting question this day and age of what we're trying to. Am better networking and tighter workplaces and get along and you know establish the corporate culture of friendliness and all that. Social media to me through is a huge monkey wrench in all that it's an interesting question. My. Immediate supervisor and the supervisor above that the big boss both semi friend requests on FaceBook. That dramatically -- changed what I do with my FaceBook because I could not refuse. To accept friend requests from the people who. Oversee what I do evaluate my work to decide if I get raises and use those kinds of things. You really don't think they would have accepted the look FaceBook is just a personal tool for me and I really only put mighty like you know personal friends from what you know we're part volatile -- culture that would accept that as an explanation. I -- or even bought -- find out now in the boss sent me a friend request the only option to me was. Except guys so it does change regularly profile. Of my out my year to completely get off of -- and now mark. Yang -- keeps me from making marquee comments in reference pictures and it keeps me from doing certain things that otherwise would do it because. You know to me there's a personal life. And as a professional and I think even an ounce on the radio who have very public. Persona is insane what we do for a living have the right to a certain personal life and but when the Boston different request what you do when your moms and different that the difficult situation as well -- -- people began and then again this night. Really want mom you know what I -- on FaceBook. Or do I want Mondesi -- week. But the pictures -- stands to Graham. When I still find fascinating is when I see changes -- relationship status on FaceBook. And I'm wondering. All of the other person your talking about here know about this. Sometimes it finds -- those in a relationship with so and so and I'm wondering if that person is looking at their computers oh really ruin a relationship is now offices I think what more often happens is. It says so and so is single that. Thought so we are our relationship. I heard of that happening too. Don't via social media and not like with a personal message -- change in religious status. This retaining your status is. We got to get to back union twenty minutes more offers news here on WW -- about fifteen minutes here at WWL am met them and that now. Now let's talk about its books text made 87870. You accept friend requests from your boss. For -- co workers from your mom.

And maybe as quickly as we'd like but -- -- -- there one person text me at 878 -- -- my bosses my friend has been for thirty years but I still would not let her on my FaceBook page that you need did you get a friend request refused it. But he did not even have to do that another what does my boss is on my FaceBook because he asked but no I don't hang out with him. He is too lazy in nasty when you take your boss is lazy and nasty but your friends on FaceBook. It's hilarious to me that people who are friends on FaceBook with people they just can't stand at present this can't stand my boss is useless. Okay and gave folks do what about about your boss feel free text made 87870. But even -- BA item if they sent you a friend request on FaceBook.

And Thursday will say a 40% chance forces scattered storms heights of ninety. From the Eyewitness News forecast center I'm meteorologist Barbara itself. Clear skies 72 degrees now on the North Shore 90% relative humidity but another cool start in Slidell partly cloudy at the international airport a little warm this morning at 75 that relative humidity there at 96%. -- saints are starting today get rid of some of the dead weight my -- to the players you've got cut but they gotta get down to 53 they started at nine Indians -- about. Are gone but gone now but. Baghdad's most people -- part of the you have heard of Steve Geller and he's -- tells about that everything else going on in morning sports -- -- Good morning and happy Tuesday in the saints have terminated the contract of reserve quarterback Seneca Wallace. Receiver Steve Breaston impact your -- in plus -- have leave five others. Coach Sean Payton was asked why did this why did you decide to make the cuts ahead of the August 27 deadline when teams' rosters and need to be whittled down to 75. This is something that you know we felt it was gonna. Help us get more. Repetition some of the other guys compete -- and will continue to look at doing. They might have been just pre season but the Redskins open the Monday Night Football season with a 24 to thirteen win over the Steelers. Robert Griffin the third did not play for Washington as he recovers from offseason knee surgery and his backup Kirk cousins exited the game. After spraining his right foot in the second quarter while LSU football is now -- eleven days away from their season opener against TCU. Defensive tackle Anthony Johnson says that the team is anxious for the trip to Dallas. The play the horned frogs. There's always a big -- the Cowboys Stadium. Lines everywhere you know we're we're undefeated on this we know we have a we have kind of what you -- isn't on there and winning streak. The NCAA has ruled that a middle Tennessee football player who spent five years in the Marines will be allowed to complete hit this fall. And we'll have his four years of eligibility remaining. It's a reversal from the NCAA its earlier decision. To rule that Stephen Roach was ineligible because he played any recreational -- during his military service. And this efforts stayed on a roll winning their fourth straight over the Iowa Cubs three -- two. As these have now won seven consecutive home games and it climbed back to the 500 mark with 65 winds at sixty file losses. Today a four on sports talk here from saints head coach Sean Payton quarterback Drew Brees and defensive -- -- Jordan as the team gets ready. For pre season game number three against the Texans. I'm Steve Geller with your early morning look it's. Pass offense like new okay. Yeah I think the one big surprise a lot of saints fans that were following a team they were anxious to see the undrafted rookie free agent. Chase Thomas at linebacker out of Stanford we're expecting some big things from him but just didn't make an impression with this. Laws it's he does end up playing it will not be with the saints or at least not on the now on the 53 man roster because now they're down to what 83 so theoretically 82 pardon -- They could bring somebody else and to someone out there that gets cut somewhere else or something that they want to take a look at that. Generally they can I start willing again be at 75 after this weekend's game right exactly inspire a week from the data get a cut it down to 75. And then before September 1 they gotta get down to 53 so when you think about it of the ninety guys. Who came to camp with the saints. 37. Of them were Dead Man Walking and I mean they do is gone and economic team. You know a lot of guys with a lot of guys like you look at the receivers that veteran guys that were brought in. Steve Breaston and Patrick Creighton religious kind of as they called camp bodies of it you know the defense has someone else the practice dance. I guess they got paid but -- better be it can't body that nobody in golf they also did mention though just in case you know barring the unforeseen if there was an injury. At least these guys they note do you know their system and their place. Yesterday -- desperately -- against economic count them two. They can bring in part that's scary thing is though what if Atlanta -- about him what these guys off the roster and they know the playbook that that was the dangers thank you Steve we're talking about when equipment more sports -- -- more about Dallas you'd just eleven days away. From starting the college football season ends smell that and that's football maybe -- it right around the corner. We'll get your forecast around the next corner. With meteorologist Laura but now on some very interesting text messages at 87870 I'll tell you what percentage of people do not wanna be friends with their boss and so to me. 546. Let's see what's going on your forecasters have -- -- forecast that there. Start off with some sunshine. We get into the afternoon expect some clouds to thicken up a bit. And then you know brain not too far behind 30% chance today but some downpours still expected. Highs around ninety chances tomorrow up to 50%. With -- right about 89 and Thursday. Just a fairly decent rain chances 40% with heights of ninety. From the eyewitness -- forecast center I'm urologist Clark. Now it's raining at the Lakefront airport right now 78 degrees there partly cloudy at the international airport in -- where it's 75 clear skies and Slidell and 72 degrees according to EE dot com. Who publishes article I'm looking at about. Fewer workers branding the boss on FaceBook and other social media they report that in a survey they found that 68% of respondents said they were on it on the ball. Being the bosses FaceBook friend in 62%. Of those people said they would not want to communicate on FaceBook. With the employees they supervised and neither the boss. Nor are the workers wanna be friends of each other. In most cases. But if one asks the other to be a friend and I think you stuck in a difficult position. Because if you refuse it or ignore it and things get a little uncomfortable at war. A show of support text messages with -- -- 7870 about that after this. I coming up CBS news Debbie WL first news traffic weather together and sports here on WW I got to text messages from people is that they never -- their boss on FaceBook. But they say they did make the mistake of branding co workers and quote. Got burned. Take it even if you know posts of stuff that's inappropriate sometimes it gets misunderstood so there's another question I even friends with the people you work went on face. What about ex girlfriends talk about back. 37 minutes after 5 AM at the early edition of WWL first news on this August 20 2013. The day we like to call. Not Monday because it is Tuesday and we made our way to when he percent of the way and the work week. And it gets 1% office something when you -- -- he'd be pretty happy so he should be pretty happy you've got 20% off your week already. That much is behind -- one -- funeral. -- yeah. Your fan of the farm team for the Philadelphia Phillies he could win one yeah the Minor League Baseball club. That already gave us the world's first -- all gaming system. Has come up with another promotion that's more than Six Feet Under and it's a little over the top. These visas same minor league club and it came up with -- you know play games in the Euro now they're given away at funeral. Here's the thing at first that's not stupid. That'd be able write essays they've already had more than fifty. Cent today. And it's why do you think you should win a -- -- girl from the Minor League Baseball club -- notorious for wacky promotions. It's one of our best out of the box promotions or maybe should -- today. Our best in the box promotions -- the iron pigs general manager current land is. Fans submitting essays have been describing there right deal funeral. And explaining why they deserve a free one and in that -- that how dumb you know they're just trying to get attention blah blah blah but I look at what it's worth. The winner which will be announced during the sixth inning we'll get a casket. Embalming. Or cremation. -- heads down flowers. And a funeral or memorial service. Worth 101000. Dollars. That's significant cash to your loved ones who won't have to pay for that -- -- -- dead. Absolutely no -- is covering the cost or do you have to have a few -- it's you know nights being sponsored by nearby funeral homes and you have to be at yet to have funerals there. And I don't know if you have to have the funeral you described in the essay here now when it's all -- down -- guess they're not gonna make you like. I -- -- well they don't have to make you do that it's gonna happen everywhere but. You're not gonna have like be forced to say lie and eternal slumber and a casket with a team logo now than -- that's what you want. I mean that may help you win the essay contest if you say that's what you want. By and you don't have to die immediately it'll be good for whenever you do dot. Is that if this is in Pennsylvania numbers again you know be may be fans of their minor league ball club locally but about the probably bigger fans view of the Phillies or maybe the pirates on. Well it's it's an Allentown Pennsylvania. I don't know if -- Phillies fans there or not but that is a Phillies formally. And it's kind of like here in New Orleans is -- offers you know our -- been a farm club of about twelve different. Matter teams. Perry -- there currently -- -- -- of its its visit the national. You've got -- the Marlins again. OK they're currently but obvious I don't think people who go to separate games are big Marlins fans. And it would -- because this is a Pennsylvania -- right. Aaron Brown Allentown -- west Pennsylvania resident. And I that it is its ability to also note that. It's coal and steel town immediately west so maybe the pirates and any either way and lag when I got that thing about it yet be canonized and I got thing and that's crazy 101000 dollars. -- and a lot of -- money. For it dead person. I tell my kids all the time please just of the cheapest route have me cremated. Save as much as you can and do something you enjoy it with that if you wanna go on. Trapper cruise or whatever and it makes you feel better take matches with me don't spend thousands of dollars to do all it selling it. That's up to them is that public America's. I'll be dead thank you Chris we'll talk to about twenty minutes -- first news here on WWL AM FM and I count. -- the odds are still alive and direct the Eyewitness News forecast and a ticket. Mark hey. It's meteorologist Laura but now what's going on that -- -- and the girls -- about what I'm really dying were just thinking about street -- and yet maybe you can win it for free. Yeah and its Prius. -- NASA about -- -- -- -- and bigotry and it's not an but it worked today the iron pigs in downtown Pennsylvania have successfully gotten us to talk about it. -- -- other broadcast all around the country as well now locally it might be talking about the fact that there's gonna see more rain today. A better chance to yesterday movies and Marty scenes of downpours right along the coastline off an upper Mississippi kind of felt that -- looking at the green pollen. That while a lot of that moisture it's it's not going to make it in and this morning that instability will be -- for later today says it'd be after -- editorial lunch time and they're four afterwards we're gonna see. A chance for rain -- tee off on 40% today. A game 40% today and I mean ties around -- upper eighties to about ninety all right summit like yesterday exactly meant that a little more rain. Later in the way yeah actually have a little better rain chance even tomorrow 50% so at best trained chants all week we'll probably come in tomorrow agency some rain developing as early as late morning on Wednesday and Thursday and Friday. Thirty to 40% rain chance that we keep that going through the weekend that. Really after tomorrow rain chance is about normal -- eats every day Tutsis and downpours. At lunch time after that. -- is about ninety for the next seven days. And -- the best chance looks like it's -- the best at it and nothing gonna drop it. -- still very quite you know just kinda check in things I want to the models every morning ministry of the allergic -- glancing up and aren't really accurate and added maybe I exercise even in the area that I agree I think that I'll add that even in the back out -- yeah exactly -- all -- quiet. I ask you question it would all be quiet in your home if you're on FaceBook and you just happen to notice that your husband accepted a friend requests from his. Ex girlfriend ex girlfriend yeah. How do you feel about we talk we were talking this morning about a new survey that finds 68% of people don't wanna be friends with their boss on them via probably not but a lot of bosses ask to be friend they send different request that what do you do. But then some announced next to mediate 7870. And and brought up the whole ex girlfriends things that I hate it when my ex girlfriend sent me friend requests and my wife sees it I never hear the end of it well. If you don't accepted everything to be fine with a wide right. But if you accept the friend requests that's where that may be an issue. You know. Purse I think it and it depends on a public person to person you know some axes are probably perfectly fine with a you don't have a lot of a lot of my ex boyfriends are married with kids and it's not a big deal -- be friends with a view on FaceBook but. You know we've been we've remained friends so it's not like a weird thing like where they're trying to reconnect after your husband -- -- that yeah. You know we'd try and you -- -- -- friends as next Oprah you know it. Lot -- he got a couple of extra OK I had came along to swept them off his feet.

It really does make you think about what you want done with your body after you're dead and and I really don't care at all my kids this over and over my wife and TO me. Is -- do whatever you want I don't care if you take the cheapest route. Cheapest casket or cremate me or whatever you wanna do do it. All I really ask for. Is I want apart what you did not -- -- them dead. Be happy I was ever alive and throw a party in my honor after right guys that's all I ask if you can if you can do that if there emotionally able to do that and I don't -- some horrific sudden accident that. To make that impossible but -- have a nice long life. And people can look back at it was a good guy with their party in his honor once you guys. He is the money that -- just had a house in Oxford funeral. All of you went on for three days ago. But again it's up to them.

Good morning and -- the saints but the troops from roster about a little early. As a team to terminate the contract of receiver Steve Breaston and Patrick Creighton along with quarterback Seneca Wallace plus -- five others.

The Redskins beat the Steelers 24 to thirteen in the first Monday Night Football contest of the year. Quarterback Robert Griffin the third is playing in the pre season as he worked his way back from major knee surgery and his backup Kirk cousins. Exited the game in the second quarter with a sprained right foot. LSU football is coming off 810 and three season and are getting ready to kick off this year against TCU in just eleven more days. Defensive tackle deputy Johnson believes they have the talent to have a better record this season. -- for legacy was more tired than I assume we're gonna keep continue to get tired -- we have a lot of young guys we beautifully and you've learned and I think we have previous edition though it was it was over the top. Well the NCAA has ruled that freshman Stephen -- can play a immediately. After serving five years in the Marines it'll also maintain all four years of his eligibility. It's a reversal from the NCAA its earlier decision to rule that Rhodes was ineligible because he played any recreational league. During his military service.

Today a four on sports talk here from saints coach Sean Payton quarterback Drew Brees and defensive van camp Jordan. I'm Steve Geller which your early morning look it's. Board's size 52 gave -- Steve Geller hanging out on your radio on and not Monday morning and made it's Tuesday and Steve. LSU opens the season you set eleven days here. I can't believe that the college football season just about year tigers horn frogs. In Dallas and Jerry world isn't just eleven days. Kickoff the 2013. LSU football season. How are you feeling about this team at this point have doctored it to. -- -- that apart Kristian -- about it quite a bit on here in the early edition of WW offers news -- your big. Follower of college football so what do you think -- indebted to many unknowns about the -- -- do we really believe everything we're hearing that as act -- murderers look at all whole lot better. In the scrimmage isn't practices. And what about the -- the defense right now. Do you think that rankings are appropriate that LSU's not even in the top ten in the nation. I think. A lot of folks are deathly under selling the tigers this year Mets are a good thing for them you know to be. Considered less -- than maybe what they are but is all going to be definitely change on the play. A quarterback that -- burger and I've distributed defense they bring in players every year LSU. Recruits very well but right now -- of the biggest question mark. Is -- -- members take that next that can be that guy. Who gets where the ball a little bit more quick court has more decisive in his throat and we don't know yet that that's a question mark is right exactly and I think that will definitely hinge on what kind of season this team has. Guess we'll find out in eleven days have meant burgers really improved as much is left smiles as he was ready even on him that's the that's a question -- Practice game scrimmage over the weekend you know the media though is not allowed to see any these practices -- scrimmage is now so it's kind of -- -- Really how much he has improved. Miles says he has. That if they got to trust the right at me at least for now we'll find out eleven days thank you Steve we'll find out in about fifteen minutes. What do she got in morning sport that -- the will be back I'll be back right after this. With what wrong with people and your forecast on Tuesday morning. Iowa this woman's lawyer by the way is that she did not get adequate notice and there were intervening circumstances but a lower court ruled that she received all the notices required by law. So we'll see in the long run if you loses their home over a six dollar and thirty cents on page bill coming up for the next for the -- Tommy Tucker. Let's talk about the fact that Louisiana is tied for the fattest state in the country yet Louisiana and Mississippi. 35% of adults here and -- Mississippi 35%. Are obese according to the Centers for Disease Control you worry about your weight if you lose weight simply by moving somewhere else. I guess if you went to where where the food is lousy. He just can't stand -- -- probably way. Part of the problem here the focus of good it to -- toward -- well. Now think about that have a great Tuesday night Dave tell him.
