Hurricane Bill whips up powerful waves. Look at this, actually some dangerous rip currents, passing between Bermuda and the east coast of the mainland US. Although it's not going to hit the mainland , we're told though, it is bringing 150-mph winds and offshore1 waves up to 20 feet high. There are warnings out there today to boaters. Um, also US beaches are a little of jam this weekend because it's one of the last weekends of the summer vacation before a lot of kiddos head back to school and many are being told stay out of the water.

President Obama trying to clear the air on his overhaul2 of health care laws. And in his radio and Web address today, the president called all the chatter3 about death panels “offensive and phony”.

Every credible4 person who has looked into it has said, there are no so-called death panels--an offensive notion to me and to the American people. These are phony claims meant to divide us.

In about 3 months the Guantanamo Bay prison is set to close and some of the detainees will likely be moved here to the US . Right now though, two facilities on the shortlists. One is in Leavenworth, Kansas, the other in Standish, Michigan which is a small town about 150 miles outside of Detroit. But the population about 1500. Now, what, most people that you saw at this town hall meeting really don't want the detainees at their prison.

We are all for any other state winding5 their prisoners here. We do not want the terrorists in our backyard.

This is such a talker especially when you see the video and you are trying to decide for yourself. She trounced the competition, blew them away to win the 800-meter-race at the World Athletic6 Championship in Berlin. But is the 18-year-old a woman? That's the question that a lot of people are asking.

Yeah, the debate going on and how what painful things to have to go through. I mean , you know, people just look at the build, and that's what they have to base it on. And also how much that athlete, she was able to blow out her female competitions.

After Caster Semenya posted a world best time of African Junior Championships 3 weeks ago, track's governing body, the IAAF, asked the South African Athletic Federation7 to administer a gender8 test. Then on Wednesday, the 18-year-old, unheard of until the summer, pulled off a stunning9 win in the Women's 800 Meters at the World Championships, further fueling speculation10. The IAAF confirmed there are currently two investigations11 underway, one in South Africa and one in Berlin where the World Championships are taking place.

You know quite frankly12, for this, uh this young lady again, no reason to believe her. Her daddy says she is his little girl. So nobody has a reason to believe otherwise no matter what she may appear to be. But, I mean, your heart has to go out for her to be going through this right now.

Well, her family is consistent in saying this is how God made her and she qualifies under any kind of testing or any kind of scrutiny13, in family's position, South Africa's position. Bottom line, though, is as far as the testing is concerned, you know, it was discontinued in 1999 because scientifically it's hard to identify unequivocally. There are some sexual ambiguity14 issues.
