NASA investigators are trying to figure out how a commercial supply rocket headed to the International Space Station exploded in midair. The unmanned rocket crashed and burned moments after liftoff at the Wallops Island launch complex in Virginia. It was carrying a cargo ship packed with hardware, supplies and spacewalk tools for the six crew members aboard the ISS. Officials say no one was injured. They're warning people in the area not to touch any debris near the crash site, as it might be hazardous. President Obama will deliver remarks from the White House on the U-S fight against Ebola.

14} ATTAM___INTRO


AT&T is being sued by the federal government. The Federal Trade Commission says the company misled millions of smartphone customers who signed up for unlimited data plans....only to find out if they used too much data --- the company would limit the speed at which they could use the internet....rendering smartphones useless. Wyatt Andrews has more.

15} ATTAM___PKG


The accusation is that ATT--while selling unlimited data on smartphones --was actually slowing down or "throttling" the data if the customer used too much. (GFX IN) The Federal Trade Commission says up to 3.5 million of ATT's high use customers --those surfing the web or using GPS - had their data stream throttled 60- 90 per cent--leaving some smartphones "practically inoperable." Edith Ramirez the Chairwoman of the FTC said "the issue is simple: unlimited means unlimited." (GFX OUT) Mike Weinberg of the consumer group Public Knowledge calls throttling commonplace--even for consumers with unlimited plans. (SOT WEINBERG) What you thought was a great 4G connection that was going to be able to access all sorts of things all of a sudden becomes incredibly slow and is not as useful. TYPICALLY WITHOUT YOU KNOWING IT? Often without you knowing it. Narr ATT called the charge "baseless" saying all wireless companies use some throttling (GFX IN) to "manage (network) resources" and claiming customers were warned in 2011 they "may experience reduced speeds..(if they reach) The top 5 percent of heaviest data users." (GFX OUT) (Live Close But according to the lawsuit, ATT's research team knew that customers hated slower speeds and urged the company not to say too much when marketing unlimited service. Scott--the FTC now wants the company to give those millions of throttled customers their money back. WYATT ANDREWS, CBS NEWS, WASHINGTON)

Kenney Bassett has been cast for a rather unusual part. ((Kenney Bassett/standardized patient 00:32:33 "I hurt my shoulder. I was raking leaves.")) He's not alone. A dozen exam rooms -- packed with patients -- experiencing identical symptoms. And they're all caught on camera. ((Proctor: 01:00:50 "you may begin.")) This is not a bizarre episode of reality TV -- but a medical school exam. And the patients...are not sick at all -- but actors -- who assume various roles -- in an outpatient clinical simulation lab. ((Shirley McAdam/Standardized Patient Educator 00:02:01 "We are their first live patient.")) They're called standardized patients -- or SPs. And have played a critical role in medical education at the University of Vermont -- for almost 20 years. ((Kenney Bassett/standardized patient 00:34:05 "I'm not a trained actor. My wife would disagree." 00:34:12 "but I can assume many roles that are appropriate to my age.")) Bassett is one of the university's 70 standardized patients. He's a boat builder by trade -- but has supplemented his income -- as a SP for 6 years -- portraying everything from abdominal pain and headaches to terminal illnesses. ((Kenney Bassett/standardized patient 00:28:54 "It's a rare privilege, I think, to work with gifted students and talented educators.")) ((Susan Luce/standardized patient 00:39:45 "I love this job so much.")) Susan Luce left the restaurant industry looking for a new challenge. She found her calling -- as an standardized patient -- four years ago. ((Susan Luce/standardized patient 00:39:50 "it's wonderful to be able to do some acting which I love and also to be able to provide the students with a real body to try different physical exams on so we can give them feedback.")) Today -- the first year medical students have 20 minutes to evaluate their SP and come up with a diagnosis. ((Proctor 00:50:21 "Encounter is over you have 2 minutes to prepare your presentation.")) Then the roles reverse. The patient becomes the doctor. And the students must present their findings to the SP -- as if they were an attending physician -- in a real hospital. ((Susan Luce "Loose"/standardized patient 00:55:30 "It's on the job training. So you start off with maybe a simpler case and to get to know the flow.")) Luce says the biggest challenge -- is keeping a dozen or more characters straight -- during a really hectic week. ((Susan Luce/standardized patient 00:27:43 "I make a lot of notes. That's how I learn.")) Today she -- and the other SPs -- will evaluate more than 100 students -- rating each one's performance in dozens of categories. Shirley McAdam is there to help. ((Shirley McAdam/Standardized Patient Educator 00:25:49 DEMONSTRATING "It kind of hurts but I can do it. Since they're first years, we don't want to scare them about pain.")) The former standardized patient -- now teaches others -- how to do the job. She helps create the characters -- draft the scripts -- and ensures each SP knows their ailment -- pain tolerance -- personality and medical history.

((SP 00:37:04 "you can't practice too much." laughs 00:37:11 TONE "SPs prepare your station.")) In the brief moments between students -- there's a flurry of activity. Some SPs review scripts. Others shake off the last student -- and get into character for the next. ((Shirley McAdam/Standardized Patient Educator 00:13:51 "a lot of them have put a great deal of time and energy and commitment into this job.")) McAdam says she looks for candidates who are convincing -- can communicate and have flexible schedules. They must also be VERY comfortable with their bodies.

People with chronic fatigue syndrome may have a specific brain abnormality. A study at Stanford University used three different M-R-I techniques to compare brains of healthy people to those with chronic fatigue. They found chronic fatigue patients had less white matter in their brains. Researchers hope their findings lead to new ways to diagnose and treat the disease. (wipe) Some prostate cancer medications may increase the risk of dying in men with a history of heart problems. Scientists in Boston followed more than 5-thousand men with prostate cancer for nearly five years. A third took a type of treatment called ADT. Researchers found that treatment was associated with a three times increased risk of heart related deaths in men with prior heart problems.

36} BITCOIN6_INTRO


A currency -- no one controls. It's anonymous. But risky. Now -- a new bitcoin A-T-M -- is bringing the virtual currency to Vermont. Shelby Cashman explains.

37} BITCOIN6_PKG


Virtual--currency? Well--thats Bitcoin. Instead of trading coins and bills for goods and services--you exchange--code. (00:07:05) ((Dan Riley/Blu Bin Owner "essentially the way this process works is on your smart phone you have an app, Bitcoin Wallet, essentially its a way of storing your Bitcoin .")) (00:07:10) Dan Riley--owns Blu Bin--a 3D printing shop in the Burlington Town Center Mall. And he not only accepts Bitcoins as a form of payment for his products--but partnered with PYC--a New york based startup--to bring Vermont its first Bitcoin ATM. (00:15:44) ((Dan Riley "The reason we have this ATM is that we want to make it easy for anyone that wants to to access that technology.")) (00:15:49) But this ATM--is opposite of what you're used to. Instead of getting money out--you put cash in--to buy Bitcoins. The amount of money you put in--dictates how much Bitcoin--you'll get. (00:23:54) ((Shelby Cashman "so right now its about 1:15 on Tuesday afternoon, and one Bitcoin is equivalent to $383.07 but that all fluctuates depending on supply and demand, almost like a stock ticker.")) (00:24:06) So--what's the point of using Bitcoins--over cash? Champlain College Computer Science Professor Ric Messier says its main draw is--transactions are untraceable. Individual Bitcoin wallets are not connected to any personal information--and--ther e's no one monitoring. (00:25:24) ((Rick Messier "In this case, its completely decentralized so there's no issuing government at all.")) (00:25:30) But Messier says--thats what also makes Bitcoin--risky. If your Bitcoin wallet is hacked--you're out of luck. (00:31:36) ((Rick Messier "With Bitcoins since there's no way to trace the transactions, there's no way to say you did or didn't use them and so there's no way to get your money back.")) (00:31:45) Bitcoin has also been linked to drug rings -- and other illegal purchasing. ((nats: ryan)) Mall shopper Ryan Steenland--had never heard of Bitcoins before. But stopped to see what the new ATM--was all about. After finally setting up a bitcoin account and exploring the technology--he agrees the potential for fraud--seems high. (00:23:10) ((Ryan Steenland "I think its interesting, but the consequences of someone being able to hack into your file are big.")) (00:23:18) But for Dan Riley--using Bitcoins is good for business. He says it appeals to Vermont's tech savvy community--and bypasses bank fees. (00:11:18) ((Dan Riely "The fees are typically lower, so you can save money by using bitcoin in some cases, and its also a frictionless way of paying people, exchanging value.")) (00:11:28)

38} BITCOIN6_TAG


You can also exchange your Bitcoins into cash. but--that has to be done online. The A-T-M is currently only allows you to go the other way.
