    Teen's death puts focus on caffeine powder dangers

    The sudden death of a healthy high school senior has ramped up attention on unregulated caffeine powder, leading federal health authorities to warn consumers to stay away from the substance. 
    A few weeks before their prom king's death, students at an Ohio high school had attended an assembly on narcotics that warned about the dangers of heroin and prescription painkillers. 

NEW YORK (AP) - A bunch of weather geeks sitting around talking shop is The Weather Channel's idea for new programming.

A weekly show will gather meteorologists and other experts to discuss topics like the merits of storm-chasing, how to fight droughts and whether machines or humans are better at forecasting.

The network said Wednesday that the show, called "Weather Geeks," will be hosted by Marshall Shepherd, director of the University of Georgia's atmospheric sciences program.

It debuts Sunday at noon (EDT), which will be its regular time slot.
