Good Day Alabama: Oct. 19, 2015

Here's what you saw on Good Day Alabama:

JEH JEH LIVE - Jeh Jeh joined us live from Lakeshore Foundation with help from Carol Kutik on Exercise Monday. Today she discussed cardio exercises that can be done while sitting. These machines are particularly great for people that have difficulty standing for extended times or use a wheelchair. She showed us a nustep - a seated version of a stepper. Some great features are ease of entry, the ability to share the movement with the upper and lower body and optional leg stabilizers.  She also introduced us to an ÜBE or an upper body ergometer. It is like a bicycle for the upper body. This ÜBE is accessible to a wheelchair user by removing the seat or with the ramp. It can also be used with the available seat or in a standing position. Next, she introduced us to a recumbent elliptical machine that operates much like a standing elliptical. It has various programs and provides an excellent cardiovascular workout. And lastly she showed us a krankcyle. Lakeshore Foundation offers krankcyle classes which are very similar to a spin class. Krankcyle are accessible to all users including manual wheelchair users and power wheelchair users. They are also a great workout for anyone including standing users. For more information, call 205-313-7400.

FINEBAUM ON FOOTBALL - Janice talked with Paul Finebaum about the full weekend of football. They discussed the much-needed wins for both Alabama and Auburn. Bama beat Texas A&M on Saturday in College Station. It was a must win game for Bama if the team wants to remain a contender for for the SEC West Champion. Ole Miss remains at the top for now though because the team remains unbeaten in the SEC. Paul and Janice also discuss Auburn's win over Kentucky on Thursday night. It was a close and hard fought game but Auburn walks away with the win. Bama faces Tennessee in Tuscaloosa this weekend. Auburn faces Arkansas. They also discuss the exciting game between LSU and Florida. LSU pulled out the big win in the swamp. Michigan State pulled off a last-minute win over rival Michigan when the punter fumbled the ball with less than 10 seconds remaining in the game. Ole Miss lost to Memphis this weekend but remains unbeaten in the SEC so Ole Miss still sits atop the SEC West.

THE TRUTH– "The Truth" is a shockingly personal and brutally honest memoir in which this celebrated dating expert confronts the greatest challenge he has ever faced: monogamy and fidelity. An immersive work of gonzo journalism that jump-started the international "seduction community," The Game saw the shy, scrawny Neil Strauss transform into "Style"—a master of seduction voted "best Pick-Up Artist in the world"—who was able to sleep with nearly any woman he desired. "A generation-defining book," according to Entertainment Weekly, decade-old The Game has continued to provoke fierce debate to this day. Now in "The Truth," Neil boldly confronts the downside of the swaggering playboy lifestyle he cultivated: unfaithfulness, dishonesty, sexual addiction, and an inability to live an integrated life. And he explores a modern culture in which traditional relationship roles are dissolving in the face of countless options and alternatives.  This journey for Neil was not only difficult, it was wrenching. It forced him deep into his past, confronting not only the moral dimensions of his pickup lifestyle, but uncovering a dark mystery in his childhood that shaped the man that he became. This quest also sent him into extremes of behavior—from Viagra-laden free-love orgies to sex addiction clinics, from cutting-edge science labs to modern-day harems—that exposed just how conflicted his life had become.

HOTTEST 2016 CARS - Automotive Expert Mike Caudill joined us from the O.C. International Auto Show at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California. He previewed what's new in showrooms including the 2016 Subaru Forester featuring Starlink, 2016 Ford Titanium Focus, 2016 Fiat 500X, the all-new 2016 Malibu and Volt from Chevy, and other newsworthy automotive trends.

BBB - David Smitherman with the Better Business Bureau joined us to explain why you should watch out for bogus dog breeders online. Better Business Bureau Serving Central & South Alabama has been notified of several scams involving popular online dog retailers. Bulldogs and huskies are some of the most sought-after dog breeds in the United States. With so many consumers looking to find the perfect pup, scammers are constantly looking for ways to take advantage. After receiving numerous calls from consumers about suspicious websites, BBB has identified multiple websites operating as fake dog breeders. The fake websites include Family Breed/Family Bullies - familybreed.com, Pecomes Bullies - pecobullies.mozello.com, Reiley's Nursery - reileyspups.com, Amenable Husky - amenablehusky.com, Spotted Husky - spottedhusky.com, and Bosco Husky Home - boscohuskyhome.com. These fraudulent businesses use legitimate-looking websites that are sometimes identical to real pet-selling sites.
Complainants all report similar activity. Consumers report ordering huskies or bulldogs from a seller's website, paying through wire transfer, but never receiving their dog. Some complainants also report animals not being delivered unless additional shipping costs are paid to an outside shipping company - Petflex Relocations--a known affiliate of other pet scam websites. BBB has also confirmed that none of the businesses are where they claim to be. Protect yourself from potential scams online by watching out for these red flags and following these tips - beware of suspiciously low prices. If it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is! Highly sought after breeds like bulldogs typically cost several thousand dollars. These websites are offering dogs for as low as a few hundred dollars, requires payment through wire transfer only. Be cautious of businesses that require payment through wire transfer-only. Wire transactions are almost impossible to reverse/trace and are widely used by scammers. Confirm that the website you are purchasing from is a company's official website. A quick search of the company should be able to tell you if the website you are using is the official web page, or at least affiliated with the company. Scammers will often use identical photos and text from real websites - sometimes altering small details like names and locations. Check the business' address. Fraudulent websites will often claim the same address as another local business or abandoned lots/houses.
