One institution paid a lot of money do some research tonight put in the file of -- we really studied it for a us listen to this. Tech science confirms what most women already knew in the first thing then check out it's not a woman's face but her body. University of Nebraska researcher stated their subjects with eye tracking technology then ask them to look at images of different shaped women. But the same study also found that women do the same thing looking at other women that theory with straight men it's about mating with straight women about. Breaking the competition to -- barker CBS news.

Soup for dinner -- your life and -- no. -- -- For that -- though. It. Happy hump day or about to outline a direct eyewitness sports sports as Steve Geller pelicans spurs game ever. As the pelicans and at the preceding games of the personal accounts. Size that up Korea after the it's WW on more of your thoughts on the proposed -- cents soda tax and entrances. So it's a pair of San Francisco lawmakers actually proposing acute sense. Per ounce tax on soda instead of banning it like New York this -- well we get too many obese people so will tax soda like we do other CN items. And see if we can raise some money and reduce obesity one person on our FaceBook page -- freedom of choice should still means something. Do any lawmakers think this is good for America just shut up and other ones as yes they should tax the soft drinks and two cents. Per ounce since nobody smokes cigarettes anymore. -- -- -- I -- whenever. Decided to try to export. Because that would just off I think they're making and you know -- aristocratic as the ticket prices parking concessions that. Pelicans tonight's first game ever as the -- how exciting is that. Can pick up a victory over the pacers you don't talk about that the saints get ready for -- -- in NYC and much more in your home buying sports want to. Good morning and happy hump day the saints defense continues to impress this season. Having racked up 24 sacks along with nine interceptions. And look to add to those totals against the jets in NYC on Sunday. Linebacker Curtis Lofton says that coordinator rob Ryan's style is the reason for the big turnaround from last year. -- -- -- -- Both the players in this locker room. You know does it play out their confident play as fast enough -- -- who knows a whole different team they're football. You're out there thinking you're wrong. Quarterback nick -- practice for the Eagles yesterday after passing a concussion test. With Michael Vick sidelined by hamstring injury falls will likely start for Philadelphia at Oakland on Sunday and -- he has a setback in his recovery. All the pelicans franchise takes flight tonight as they open the season against Indiana coach Monty Williams on to pacers that will challenge this new -- squad. Do you worse doesn't ruin your job been opposed to finding guys Paul George's mother. 69 point guard so we'll try to limit their transition opportunities we've got to do -- and. Coach Williams mentioned Paul George he scored 24 points and Roy Hibbert grabbed sixteen rebounds last night as Indiana topped Orlando 97 to 87. The Miami -- receive their championship rings before LeBron James scored seventeen points. And a 107 to 95 win over Chicago Los Angeles Lakers captured captured sixty bragging white rights. -- they won sixteen to 103 win over the clippers. And the St. Louis Cardinals look to keep their World Series hopes alive tonight in Boston. The Red Sox lead the series three games to 21 pitch for game six in Fenway is at 705. Meanwhile today a four on sports talk in 2009 the saints play the dolphins in Miami the site of the Super Bowl. Sunday the black and gold hit the road to take on the jets in this year's venue for the big game. -- good -- or just a coincidence at 7 PM you have a choice switch over to WWL 87 the AM to catch the lets lets smile show. You can hear the pelicans opened the season against Indiana Pacers are 1053. WW LS spam that's early morning look at sports tonight Steve Geller. 551 -- on Steve -- hang out with you on your -- DO and interest saying that Rob Ryan the saints defensive coordinator has never no matter what team he's been with when he played his brother in the NFL. Never beaten him. Yeah with the Cleveland Browns in the Oakland Raiders he just hasn't had the same kind of -- -- cowboys and it -- -- are the cowboys -- right with the raiders he did not play has grown out with the browns and the cowboys lost to his brother five times right. Now let's hope that changes on -- that little bit of a better team this time around acting and a better defense and better. Offense and better everything bright young -- we're the best quarterbacks in the NFL -- -- great sign yet that the authority and the pelicans tonight you've already predicted. A pelicans victory by six or seven points that's good to hear that your confidence. That the pelicans can win this one -- Is their weakness anyone on the spot and steam and act focus on the senate is because I heard coach Mike Williams. We -- ask them who start at setter and I'll tell you after the game stats yet he's given it kind of a secret. What's funny is that really is. I guess two options to star would be even the rookie. Jeff with the for another guy that's been in this third -- -- where image is Greg -- month. And -- coach decides. To start Anthony Davis that senator and then you have Brian Anderson at power forward. A I'd now like that idea yeah you've got a party to the center position and have another good shooter at the power. Or -- deathly puts more talented guys on the a court right away but coach always stresses that. Whoever's starting is not really important it's just about the minute that you get yet again -- it like crazy rally and almost every basketball game. It comes down the last five minutes of the game anyway no matter what yet I'll expect those to Ryan Anderson and Anthony Davis to be on the court at that moment I expect to hear you again in fifteen minutes -- more sports -- WW now. The top hat now laugh all you want to gamble. Here. Here for -- last at least in its current form and excellence that'll introduce a new way of sharing and right now we're sharing your forecast because while we got Halloween tomorrow. Or your Wednesday partly cloudy today will see it 10% chance for justice stray shower warm like yesterday in the low eighties. And tonight lows only dropping to about seven deep and that's on both sides of the -- -- for Halloween still looking pretty -- they mostly cloudy as we get into the afternoon and a bit breezy. 30% chance for showers during trick or treat time Temps falling into the seventies but rain likely late Thursday night and for Friday at 70% chance. And a little cooler highs Friday at 81. From the Eyewitness News forecast -- -- meteorologists are about tell us. County 71 at the reporting scattered around 90% relative humidity at south east and can monopoly golf's ethnic and -- Medea mostly cloudy and 62. At the National Weather Service office in Slidell -- its early -- going to be WL. First as one person writes on our FaceBook page and asked should there be a two cent per ounce. Soft drink tax on soda. The guns kill people just as much as sport that people facts. What happened being held accountable for your own actions well isn't banning suffering like New York is trying to do this just tax it. Like it is cigarettes and alcohol Netherlands and Patrick about a gallon of Coke a day -- would be in trouble acute sense browns. -- -- -- in for the next four hours of fun here at WWL. I animals left. He's not been but I accident and a four dollars -- holdings. Motown rocket role ultimately. What we got and I'm -- a city that was a joke. I think. Beer and -- you vandals as we're gonna talk about alcoholic Tiger Stadium would it when it.

They catch yes it -- the rap sheet this guy as. Then allegedly shot him. It's amazing murder attempted murder this guy is bad news on the line that he was out on the streets if there's anybody that belongs in prison it's this guy. And I'll also talk about it obamacare and and something though -- -- -- documents released by NBC news in the White House in three years ago you wouldn't be it would keep your. I tied it until you know economic -- and for the -- funny I keep talking about the two cents cents. Two cent tax on top ranked. We'll continue to have a statement based.
