DAVID PAUL KUHN (Political journalist covering foreign politics and author of the upcoming book "What Makes It Worthy")
FIRST REPUBLICAN DEBATE The first Republican presidential primary debates, hosted by Fox News and Facebook in conjunction with the Ohio Republican Party, will be held at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio. Beginning at 5:00 PM ET. Seventeen candidates seeking the Republican nomination for president will be featured in two debates tomorrow night hosted by Fox News. Ten will face each other in a debate in prime time, while the remaining seven will debate earlier in the evening. All of the Republican candidates with the exception of Bush and Scott Walker, who have broken into double digits in some recent polls, have struggled to catapult out of the very crowded middle-tier pack. A stellar debate performance this week -- along with some favorable headlines -- could be the boost some contenders need to catch up to their top-tier rivals. The earlier debate will include Rick Perry, Rick Santorum, Bobby Jindal, Carly Fiorina, Lindsey Graham, George Pataki and Jim Gilmore. This smaller group is at the very bottom of the polls for now. While the late-afternoon event will draw a much smaller audience than its prime-time counterpart, it will nevertheless show early signs of who in the group has the potential to shine later in the cycle. What should we expect going into the debate?

Dr. PARI GODSI (Medical Expert) CHILLY AT WORK? OFFICE FORMULA WAS DEVISED FOR MEN Summers are hot in Omaha, where heat indexes can top 100 degrees. But Molly Mahannah is prepared. At the office, she bundles up in cardigans or an oversized sweatshirt from her file drawer. Then, she says, "I have a huge blanket at my desk that I've got myself wrapped in like a burrito." Recently, "I was so cold, I was like 'I'm just going to sit in my car in like 100-degree heat for like five minutes, and bake.'" Ms. Mahannah, 24, who posted on Twitter that at work she felt like an icy White Walker from "Game of Thrones," said a female co-worker at her digital marketing agency cloaked herself in sweaters, too. But the men? "They're in, like, shorts." Right. It happens every summer: Offices turn on the air-conditioning, and women freeze into Popsicles. Finally, scientists (two men, for the record) are urging an end to the Great Arctic Office Conspiracy. Their study, published Monday in the journal Nature Climate Change, says that most office buildings set temperatures based on a decades-old formula that uses the metabolic rates of men. The study concludes that buildings should "reduce gender-discriminating bias in thermal comfort" because setting temperatures at slightly warmer levels can help combat global warming. Does the thermostat setting in your office leave you cold? Now we know why. The standard was set in the 1960s to accommodate the resting metabolic rate of a 40-year-old man who weighs 154 lbs. What are the metabolic difference between men and women and offer insights?

DONOVAN LONGMORE (Parliamentarian and 2nd Vice President of the West Indian Parade Celebration) Donovan talked about the 53rd West Indian Independence Celebration Parade on August 8th.
