Eleven minutes after 5 AM at the early edition of WWL first news on the sixth of may 2014. Its series today not Monday asked survived it made it through. One on one -- At least humanize our men some some people. Those spiders in the tub this morning now but I was so -- distracted by my little mister Moffett experienced -- -- Don't know the toughest. That I -- get a chance to talk about this report that we you're sharing what their listeners. That the first born is the most successful. According to a use case study yes and researchers -- SX's institute force social and economic research. Took a look at more than 3500. Individuals more than 15100 groups of siblings pretty good starting and it is pretty large and they found that. First born children tended to be more successful. Than their peers that -- And Carol the first ones out there. We're going you have absolutely you are the most right here right now there are out there and of course the time I wanted to know why. Over the reasons behind it immediately and and the first thing I heard which made absent sense is that the first born. Gets more attention yes because. And there alone for at least yeah little while it's it's mom and dad and one -- yet. And they get mom and -- on divided attention and mom and data are new moms and dads and their really gung ho and into it value add and you're so they're trying to do everything absolutely ride and the first born has a 16% higher probability. Of going to college. And do children who are not the first board. And then it just grows from there if you're more likely to go to college and you're more likely get a better job relate more likely to make more money. And it's kind of the domino effect and we talked to a local. Licensed professional counselor who works with families doctor -- mono in Metairie -- again now. It makes -- -- it's what I see is that the only factor. And doesn't mean the first -- Always the most success now. But apparently it's pretty prevalent and then you gotta wonder ball out of the ones in the middle and they yen field yet nothing if not. What's the deal earlier you're now a parent will always say to their did. That they love all of their children in this thing I don't love your older Brothers sister more than nine years. But I don't particularly moms tend to hold a real place in -- -- for their first bore and and now I'll middle child should admit that wholeheartedly right off the bat that I am not a first board. But the way I see it the first born does get the most attention at least to begin with because there aren't -- autism. Then when the successive ones come mom and dad aren't as well. The term used earlier gung ho I guess I'll stick with that -- and then the baby the last one I think gets I think has the biggest disadvantage. They may get your house detention. But they also get paid heed the longest beat them mom more than dad doesn't ever want the last babies grow up. So I think the first one and the last one get the most attention. You don't want to be in the middle of one the -- left to break expense for the salads actually it got to learn to be a fighter and a survivor on every kind of job and of course of outside of all of this study. What about only children. Is their first born and last more now. You can evident that they do parents really love all the children the same. -- really. Equally love all of your kids -- parents have a favorite here I want no I think. Anything in yeah.

You get -- and only talent yes my parents had me and said no moral -- you scared them out of having any further. You know my mom actually told me this story accurately she told me this bill.

Because he was suffering from cramps. Wolf the states decide to trade up in Thursday night's NFL draft many who bets are hoping that the black and gold can land. Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins the KG came Bobby Hebert is also in that number. I'm tailored to -- the visit corny is that in the burn them in not RL -- you -- Jimmy Graham or Colson has left and just talk -- spreads the ball around we don't need to -- 6000 yards just have that threat because I think that would even help already give. Watkins is six foot tall 211 pounds and has been compared to eight. Free agent defensive end Will Smith has signed with the New England Patriots the 32 year old veteran had played the entire ten year career with the saints. He's appeared at a 139. NFL games and has 67 and half sacks -- forced fumbles and seven fumble recoveries. Both road teams one to open the semi final round of the NBA playoffs the Washington Wizards took down the pacers one -- two to 96 in Indiana. While Chris Paul was red hot lead the clippers to a 122105. Thrashing of them OKC thunder. CP three scored 32 points it was eight for nine from three point range -- coach Doc Rivers says that poll gave the team exactly what they needed. I thought his intuition was.

He received a 104 of the 1241. -- bolts after averaging seventeen points six assists and six rebounds a game.

And -- gave last failure pretty excited about them now terminated they go on forever but here we are now the second round and and some pretty good games underway yet even the first round was pretty amazing how many game sevens we ended up going to Obey the Miami Heat were able to dispatch. Though -- before you know forestry teams. Of their series and easily advanced but other than that they've been a pretty pretty great fights in all of these games in. It's it's just great to see what's going on the Western Conference were -- -- thought it was just. -- give me that San Antonio was -- and the advancing but it looks like. The clippers now with this whole stress of -- Donald's darlings ownership. Being suspended from the team for life. Has seen -- up with this squad even more so now. Initially thought the spurs are gonna win at all now who do you think I think. And it's it's really hard to go against the clippers right now because of what they went through I wouldn't doubt that at all right now they can beat the heat -- done -- yet and when I'm really anxious to see 2 in the Eastern Conference. The Brooklyn nets vs the Miami Heat Brooklyn was for no against them the entire season can they do in the playoffs though. We LT thank you look like in 25 minutes and more sports here on WWL I am adamant that -- thank you to back we'll talk draft on this draft weak edges.

People you love all your kids the same do you think your parents loved you all the same. Equally exactly the same way is that possible parents at all time then forecast. On this Tuesday were climbing up to the eighties this after game but still expect plenty of sunshine around today.

And it is Tuesday so I've been asking folks do parents have favorite kids. Or did they really loved them all equally all equally well one -- person insisted in all -- with -- and points that level decades equally and -- -- they love their kids differently. Because they're all different people that's a good answer hey hey Chris Miller's I was just talking to him.

I'm better be executed your parents love you all equally maybe get a different answer than what the parent yacht instead of -- asking the parents yes the kids.

The -- and toward the end of the workweek about a 60% chance on Friday. A 40% chance on Saturday and at 30% chance on Sunday at pace and a washout spread awareness to the days perhaps it does look like best chance for some afternoon thunderstorms beat Friday other than that temperatures are where an event -- -- -- -- -- yet that can feel a little bit more humid by the weekend just because. -- the -- to return to showers return that sort of things that we're saying the by the dry air but yet you did that would happen. Yeah it's bound to. There's been an on line push to get rid. Questionable ingredients and what are supposed to be healthy -- remember the controversy over the same materials used in yoga mats and these new national reading how to read -- subways are -- got rid of it well. McDonald's Burger King other companies still use it in their broad.

Good morning everybody according to fox sports and pro football talk dot com. Tell us exactly met burger and Anthony Johnson were among ten prospects -- red flags NFL teams as having failed drug test at the come line. -- met burger produced a diluted urine sample but that's reportedly due to over hydration since he was cramping while recovering from knee surgery. The center position still seems to be an area of need for the saints as trim the lead so is the only one currently on the roster. Mark is mark out of USC may very we -- the black and gold first round draft pick. In WWL's Bobby Hebert says while it's not a sexy pick. Morgan with Martin would likely provide some stability on the lawn for many years I think would be a senator come the next decade. And yet the flexibility and Nathalie please send -- center or guard. A -- as a lot of side -- six foot 3320. Pounds and did have a pre draft work out with the saints. Well after a decade long career with the black and gold free agent defensive end Will Smith has a new home. A 32 year old has signed with the New England Patriots Smith has a recorded more than six and a half sacks in the season since 2009. And sat out all of last year after suffering a torn ACL in the saints' third pre season game. Washington and Los Angeles opened their respective conference semi final series with road victories. Trevor reason shot six for six with from three point range and scored 22 points for the wizards. And he wanted to within 96 triumph over the pacers. Meanwhile Chris Paul had a career best 83 pointers and finished with 32 points and ten assists in the clippers' one of 1422105. Beat -- of Oklahoma City. LA head coach Doc Rivers says they were locked in on the defensive end. We share the ball we are really good what our spacing again I thought DC Darren Collison and CP -- normal when downhill -- -- drives major big stage. But the longer. -- W 76ers guard Michael -- Williams has been named the NBA's rookie of the year he was selected with the eleventh overall pick in the draft out of Syracuse. And Mark Canton Kyle Jensen each homered twice for the staffers who roughed up round -- by the score of thirteen to four. That I have four on sports talk is there a must have player in this year's NFL draft. Which prospect -- Dorsey wish list I'm Steve Geller and that your early morning exports to Vietnam a top three positions the saints need to. Go after in the draft not necessarily in any particular order -- -- their first pick may be an offensive lineman but what are the three positions they asked to. Address before the regular season starts -- think cornerback is up there for me just because of the fact you brought -- 835 year old future hall of Famer but he's definitely on the decline. Off for -- number two spot opposite Keenan Lewis so I think he's got to get one of those and a new. Fresh blood in the -- you also have Patrick -- are going to be there forever regret that you have Patrick Robinson and Corey white also competing but I still -- Bring in another defensive back will be a good idea at the back wide receiver receiver he needs me to -- to stretch the field Drew Brees could always use some more targets. And then I would also is deathly shortly offense along with either center or guard as the top three positions thank you sir we'll see what happens in the draft on Thursday. Live right here on WWL. Ron Amadon back in fifteen meant to our -- -- back after this with the forecast. Time for your forecast at 555. The quiet weather continues this Tuesday with mostly sunny conditions and temperatures later on heating up 84 today. And then dropping into the sixties tonight watch out for some patchy fog info Wednesday partly cloudy hype about 84 and by Thursday. A few showers start to mix and look for 20% chance and highs in the mid eighties from the Eyewitness News forecast center meteorologists are. So Friday looks like rain is likely less so for the weekend right now 63 at the airport 54 and flight now. I could present -- -- 878 that he says nothing new -- have flame retardant in your food we baking soda everyday and that's with a bright fire extinguishers noses really. Water is a flame retardant. Gets that is just because the chemical has industrial use does not necessarily mean it's harmful to eat. Your body needs magnesium. Magnesium is the main metal used.

Under any circumstances. Which used to joke not a recommendation. Yeah you know it's funny the Internet has a lot of power. And the reason that they've taken the yoga -- chemical as they call out of subway Brad is because of pressure on the Internet. But it'd take it out of bonds at McDonald's and Burger King the reason they're taking this so called -- retired not a power rating Gatorade is because of pressure on the Internet. And a lot of other products -- during.
