SYRIA FRI
    PRESIDENT OBAMA RETURNS TO THE U-S TODAY -- WITHOUT THE INTERNATIONAL SUPPORT HE WANTED ON SYRIA.

    IF MR.OBAMA DECIDES TO GO AHEAD WITH LIMITED SUPPORT, ABC NEWS HAS LEARNED HIS NATIONAL SECURITY TEAM IS PREPARING FOR A LARGER ATTACK THAN WAS PREVIOUSLY ANTICIPATED.

    ABC'S TAHMAN BRADLEY IS IN WASHINGTON WITH THE DETAILS.

    World leaders gathering at the G-20 summit in Russia continue to resist

    President Obama's push for a military strike against Syria.

    NATS- OBAMA enters dinner location

    Nats reporter: "MR. PRESIDENT, ANY PROGRESS ON SYRIA TODAY IN THE TALKS?"

    Obama: "NO, WE WERE TALKING ABOUT THE ECONOMY THIS AFTERNOON."

    The President is arguing that a strike is necessary to deter Syrian

    President Bashar al Assad from using chemical weapons in the future.

    But the G-20 host -- Russia President Vladimir Putin -- is staunchly opposed

    to attacking Syria.

    And he's not alone.

    China is against a strike. Germany says it will not take part in an attack.

    And the European Union is calling for a "political solution."

    Back in the U.S., the debate continues over whether Congress should

    authorize the use of force against the Syrian regime.

    "I'M GOING TO LOOK AT THE RAMIFICATIONS FOR THE REGION OF A STRIKE."

    "THERE ARE NO GOOD OPTIONS LEFT IN SYRIA. THERE ARE ONLY BAD AND WORSE."

    If the President moves forward with a strike, ABC News has learned that his

    national security team is preparing for a significantly larger military

    bombardment than most anticipated.


    include Tomahawk cruise missiles fired from those four Navy destroyers in

    the eastern Mediterranean -- those ships loaded with nearly 200 missiles.


    bombs fired from B-1 and B-52 bombers.


    The President will keep making the case for a strike to the American people.

    Administration officials say he is considering an address to the nation on

    the need for military intervention in Syria.

I MO 300 HIV
    NOW, TO A TERRIBLE STORY OUT OF MISSOURI ....THAT KEEPS GETTING WORSE...

    A MAN WHO KNEW HE HAD H-I-V, CONTINUED TO INFECT HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE WITHOUT TELLING THEM ABOUT THE DISEASE.

    THIS MAN... DAVID LEE MANGUM... HAS APPARENTLY HAD OVER 300-PARTNERS SINCE HE WAS DIAGNOSED TEN YEARS AGO.

    HE WAS BUSTED LAST WEEK AFTER HIS FORMER PARTNER TESTED POSITIVE FOR H-I-V ...

    IT'S UNCLEAR HOW MANY OF HIS OTHER PARTNERS MAY CARRY THE DISEASE.

    ((STOP!!

    A BIG EXPLOSION IN CALIFORNIA... TWO OXYGEN TANKS STORED IN THE TRUNK OF A CAR EXPLODED WHEN A DRUNK DRIVER SLAMMED INTO THE CAR.

    THE EXPLOSION CAUSED PARTS OF THE CAR TO FLY CLEAR ACROSS THE INTERSECTION LEAVING THE CAR JUST A CHARRED SHELL.

    BOTH DRIVERS WERE TAKEN TO THE HOSPITAL.

    AUTHORITIES SAY AN OUT OF CONTROL CAMPFIRE STARTED THE HUGE RIM FIRE IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA THAT'S ALREADY BURNED NEARLY A QUARTER MILLION ACRES. INVESTIGATORS SAY A HUNTER'S ILLEGAL CAMPFIRE GOT OUT OF CONTROL.

    THE HUNTER HAS BEEN IDENTIFIED, BUT HIS NAME IS BEING WITHHELD PENDING FURTHER INVESTIGATION.

    HE HAS NOT BEEN ARRESTED.

    THE RIM FIRE, WHICH HAS BURNED INTO YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK, IS ONE OF THE LARGEST WILDFIRES IN CALIFORNIA'S HISTORY.

    OKAY YOU HAVE YOUR FLASHLIGHT, WATER AND PERHAPS A FEW CANS OF TUNA FISH- BUT ARE YOU REALLY READY IN CASE A NATURAL DISASTER HITS? EXPERTS SAY BEING PREPARED IS MORE ABOUT A STATE OF MIND THAN A STASH OF SUPPLIES.

    VO

    FEMA FOUND THAT MOST OF US - WELL WE'RE JUST NOT PREPARED…IN A NEW STUDY CONDUCTED NATION-WIDE THEY DETERMINED THAT LESS THAN HALF OF AMERICANS TALK ABOUT BEING PREPARED FOR A NATURAL DIASTER.

    FEMA IS CALLING ON AMERICANS TO START TALKING NOW -BEFORE A DISASTER - TO SET THEMSELVES UP BETTER SHOULD THE UNEXPECTED HAPPEN. AND ITS ABOUT BEING SAVVY ONLINE AHEAD OF TIME TOO -- WHAT THEY CALL HAVING YOUR "INTERACTIVE EMERGENCY KIT"

    CELL PHONES ARE USUALLY UNRELIABLE IN EMERGENCY SITUATIONS -- BECAUSE TOWERS OVERLOAD. JUST BY DOWNLOADING AND BOOKMARKING APPS AHEAD OF TIME -- YOU ARE BETTER PREPARED INSTANTLY.

    FEMA JUST LAUNCHED A NEW APP - THAT HAS SOME GREAT NEW FUNCTIONS AND ESSENTIALLY TURNS YOU INTO THE REAL-TIME REPORTER IN THE EVENT OF AN EMERGENCY.

    WHEN A DISASTER STRIKES THEY WANT YOU TO TAKE A PICTURE OF IT, UPLOAD IT AND FEMA WILL PUT IT ON A PUBLIC MAP

    SUNLEN ON CAM

    THIS GIVES EVERYONE IN A DISASTER AREA THE ABILITY TO UPLOAD AND VIEW INFORMATION IN A CENTRALIZED PLACE - ALLOWIING EMERGENCY RESPONDERS TO GET THE INFORMATION IN REAL TIME.

    AND MANY OF US PRACTICE FIRE DRILLS AT SCHOOL AND IN THE OFFICE, BUT IS THIS SOMETHING THAT FEMA RECOMMENDS FAMILIES RUN THROUGH - PERHAPS AT HOME?

SYRIA FRI
    PRESIDENT OBAMA RETURNS TO THE U-S TODAY -- WITHOUT THE INTERNATIONAL SUPPORT HE WANTED ON SYRIA.

    IF MR.OBAMA DECIDES TO GO AHEAD WITH LIMITED SUPPORT, ABC NEWS HAS LEARNED HIS NATIONAL SECURITY TEAM IS PREPARING FOR A LARGER ATTACK THAN WAS PREVIOUSLY ANTICIPATED.

    ABC'S TAHMAN BRADLEY IS IN WASHINGTON WITH THE DETAILS.

    World leaders gathering at the G-20 summit in Russia continue to resist

    President Obama's push for a military strike against Syria.

    NATS- OBAMA enters dinner location

    Nats reporter: "MR. PRESIDENT, ANY PROGRESS ON SYRIA TODAY IN THE TALKS?"

    Obama: "NO, WE WERE TALKING ABOUT THE ECONOMY THIS AFTERNOON."

    The President is arguing that a strike is necessary to deter Syrian

    President Bashar al Assad from using chemical weapons in the future.

    But the G-20 host -- Russia President Vladimir Putin -- is staunchly opposed

    to attacking Syria.

    And he's not alone.

    China is against a strike. Germany says it will not take part in an attack.

    And the European Union is calling for a "political solution."

    Back in the U.S., the debate continues over whether Congress should

    authorize the use of force against the Syrian regime.

    "I'M GOING TO LOOK AT THE RAMIFICATIONS FOR THE REGION OF A STRIKE."

    "THERE ARE NO GOOD OPTIONS LEFT IN SYRIA. THERE ARE ONLY BAD AND WORSE."

    If the President moves forward with a strike, ABC News has learned that his

    national security team is preparing for a significantly larger military

    bombardment than most anticipated.


    include Tomahawk cruise missiles fired from those four Navy destroyers in

    the eastern Mediterranean -- those ships loaded with nearly 200 missiles.


    bombs fired from B-1 and B-52 bombers.


    The President will keep making the case for a strike to the American people.

    Administration officials say he is considering an address to the nation on

    the need for military intervention in Syria.

    NOW, TO A TERRIBLE STORY OUT OF MISSOURI ....THAT KEEPS GETTING WORSE...

    A MAN WHO KNEW HE HAD H-I-V, CONTINUED TO INFECT HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE WITHOUT TELLING THEM ABOUT THE DISEASE.

    THIS MAN... DAVID LEE MANGUM... HAS APPARENTLY HAD OVER 300-PARTNERS SINCE HE WAS DIAGNOSED TEN YEARS AGO.

    HE WAS BUSTED LAST WEEK AFTER HIS FORMER PARTNER TESTED POSITIVE FOR H-I-V ...

    IT'S UNCLEAR HOW MANY OF HIS OTHER PARTNERS MAY CARRY THE DISEASE.

    ((STOP!!

    A BIG EXPLOSION IN CALIFORNIA... TWO OXYGEN TANKS STORED IN THE TRUNK OF A CAR EXPLODED WHEN A DRUNK DRIVER SLAMMED INTO THE CAR.

    THE EXPLOSION CAUSED PARTS OF THE CAR TO FLY CLEAR ACROSS THE INTERSECTION LEAVING THE CAR JUST A CHARRED SHELL.

    BOTH DRIVERS WERE TAKEN TO THE HOSPITAL.

    AUTHORITIES SAY AN OUT OF CONTROL CAMPFIRE STARTED THE HUGE RIM FIRE IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA THAT'S ALREADY BURNED NEARLY A QUARTER MILLION ACRES. INVESTIGATORS SAY A HUNTER'S ILLEGAL CAMPFIRE GOT OUT OF CONTROL.

    THE HUNTER HAS BEEN IDENTIFIED, BUT HIS NAME IS BEING WITHHELD PENDING FURTHER INVESTIGATION.

    HE HAS NOT BEEN ARRESTED.

    THE RIM FIRE, WHICH HAS BURNED INTO YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK, IS ONE OF THE LARGEST WILDFIRES IN CALIFORNIA'S HISTORY.

DON'T CLEAN CHICKEN
    THERE'S A NEW WARNING ABOUT HANDLING RAW CHICKEN... TURNS OUT, YOU MAY HAVE BEEN DOING IT COMPLETELY WRONG!

    A VIDEO RELEASED BY FOOD SAFETY RESEARCHERS SHOWS HOW WASHING CHICKEN BEFORE COOKING... IS EVEN *MORE* DANGEROUS.

    ELIZABETH COHEN EXPLAINS.

    BUT IT TURNS OUT THAT IT'S NOT...AND HERE'S WHY:

    JUST LOOK AT THIS ANIMATION.

    THIS PERSON IS WASHING THEIR CHICKEN.

    BUT LOOK!

    THOSE GERMS ARE GETTING SPRAYED EVERYWHERE...

    ON THE SINK, ON THE COUNTER, EVEN ON THE PERSON WHO'S DOING THE WASHING.

    ONE STUDY FOUND THAT THE GERMS CAN GO AS FAR AS THREE FEET AWAY.

    AND HERE'S ANOTHER REASON - IT DOESN'T WORK!

    THAT'S RIGHT. STUDIES HAVE SHOWN THAT YOU CAN WASH AND WASH AND WASH YOUR CHICKEN AND YOU'LL STILL HAVE HARMFUL BACTERIA ON THE SURFACE OF YOUR POULTRY.

    SO, DON'T DO IT BECAUSE IT DOESN'T WORK AND DON'T DO IT BECAUSE IT ACTUALLY MIGHT MAKE YOU EVEN SICKER.

    WE'RE TALKING ABOUT BACTERIA LIKE SALMONELLA AND CAMPYLOBACTER.

    SO, WHAT YOU SHOULD DO INSTEAD IS COOK YOUR CHICKEN AND COOK IT THOROUGHLY, THAT DOES KILL THE BACTERIA.
