Before you head to the pool or water park this summer, the Centers for Disease Control wants you to practice safer, more hygenic swimming habits.  The agency says the number of outbreaks of a parasitic infection known as "crypto" doubled in 2016 from outbreaks reported in 2014.  We'll talk with a CDC and public health expert about "crypto" and why pool water can be a fertile breeding ground for infection.   Then after a decade, Oberlin College sees a change in leadership. Just in time for summer sequel season, Cleveland and Golden State match up for a third straight year.  As the NBA Finals begin, can the Cavs do it again?
