Here's NewsChannel 13 Meteorologist Paul Caiano's WAMC Regional Forecast:     

Mostly cloudy and humid today with numerous showers and thunderstorms.  Highs in the lower 80s.

To an outsider, the fancy booths at a June health insurance industry gathering in San Diego, Calif., aren't very compelling: a handful of companies pitching "lifestyle" data and salespeople touting jargony phrases like "social determinants of health."

But dig deeper and the implications of what they're selling might give many patients pause: a future in which everything you do — the things you buy, the food you eat, the time you spend watching TV — may help determine how much you pay for health insurance.

SOCCER

Some are calling it the greatest generation of Croatian soccer players and who could argue? Mario Mandzukic scored the go-ahead goal in the 109th minute and Croatia stunned England 2-1 in Moscow in their World Cup semifinal. It was the third consecutive extra time win for Croatia, which advanced to the World Cup final for the first time.

When Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson was crafting his rent reform proposal for Americans living on housing assistance earlier this year, he spoke to leaders at the Charlotte Housing Authority in North Carolina about their work requirements.

The "Making Affordable Housing Work Act" would allow housing authorities more flexibility to impose work requirements on tenants, which Carson said helps promote self-sufficiency.
