tv   CNN Newsroom With Fredricka Whitfield  CNN  July 11, 2015 10:00am-11:01am PDT

10:00 am
of course include the president, data swept up by these hackers. >> again i don't have any information about the president's personal data. >> archeleta's resignation came roughly 12 hours after she told reporters on a conference call she wanted to stay at opm to oversee the upgrading of federal data systems. instead she's replaced by beth covert a top official at omp. she starts next week. so much more straight ahead in the news room and it all starts right now. donald trump making a bold prediction. >> when it's all said and done i will win -- win the hispanic vote. >> this has the presidential candidate prepares to speak to thousands about immigration in just hours. and later, the search is on for the parents of this little girl only known as baby doe.
10:01 am
we talked to a former senior fbi profiler about what the evidence tells us about the toddler and possibly family. plus a doctor heading to prison after giving patients chemotherapy when they didn't need it all because he wanted more money. you're live in the cnn news room. >> hello again and thanks so much for joining me. i'm fredricka whitfield. next hour donald trump continues his western swing. first up is a libertarian conference in las vegas. and then he heads to phoenix where several thousand are expected to attend a major rally on an immigration -- on immigration with controversial sheriff joe arpaio. organizers in phoenix had to change venues to accommodate the larger than expected crowds now. m.j. lee is following the story for us. m.j. trump's immigration remarks have him angering a lot of people but at the same time
10:02 am
his popularity he's rising in the polls, at least. and i understand you have some new information about who might be introducing him today in phoenix when he meets up with the sheriff. >> reporter: that's right. we've learned that jameel shaw sr., the father of a high school student who was killed years ago in los angeles by an undocumented immigrant will be introducing trump on stage in the phoenix rally today, fredricka. shaw was one of the family members of victims of crimes perpetrated by undocumented immigrants that trump met with in los angeles yesterday. shaw actually spoke about his meeting with trump earlier this morning. >> he told me that my son's life was not going to be in vain and that he was going to do something about it by enforcing immigration law, securing the border everything that we want. everything that people are
10:03 am
asking for he's going to do it. >> this is an important reminder fredricka, that while there are many people who have been very offended by the comments that donald trump has made about illegal immigration and illegal immigrants coming into the country, there are also people who think that he is making an important point about addressing illegal immigration into the country. >> and then m.j. despite the fact that many have said his remarks have been very offensive, donald trump when we heard in his sound bite earlier, he says he insists he is going to win the latino vote. how and why? >> reporter: that's right. it's been fascinating to see trump talk about the hispanic vote despite the backlash that he has gotten in the last couple of weeks. he is confident as ever that he will be the candidate that wins the majority of the hispanic vote. i think in part because he really believes that he is the candidate who has the strongest message when it comes to job creation. here's what he said last night.
10:04 am
>> when the word gets out, i will win. romney let us all down. he was a very poor campaigner. he did a horrible job. he should have won that race. and he did not do well with the hispanics. when it's all said and done i will win -- win the hispanic vote over the democrat whoever it may be probably hillary clinton. >> reporter: fred as you can see, donald trump as confident as ever. >> always. all right, m.j. lee, thank you so much. all right. let's turn now to another republican presidential candidate. or shall we call him not just yet. wisconsin governor scott walker tweeted friday that he is officially running for president. but was that inadvertent? a little unusual, because he is expected to formally join the race at an event on monday. so the friday evening tweet was deleted very quickly. what really did happen? cnn tech correspondent samuel
10:05 am
berg joining us now. all right, so contrary to past twitter faux-pass, this may not have been the walker camp's fault. at least that's what twitter is saying right? >> fredricka, when i first saw this tweet i had to think back to my time as a digital producer at cnn for christiane amanpour. you type something but it gets sent out over the weekend. i thought for sure some campaign worker accidentally set up for the wrong time. then we received this statement from twitter. take a look at this from twitter spokesperson new wexler saying the following "we're looking into today's issue. we've determined the walker team was not at fault. so twitter isn't saying they're at fault, they're saying the walker team isn't. what does this mean? it could be a miscommunication between the walker team and somebody else or another group that might be managing the
10:06 am
account. it could be a hacking, even though the walker team and twitter haven't indicated that. or what most people are telling me experts who deal with this type of situation all the time there's likely there was some type of glitch with twitter, whether that's a wrong time zone or some type of problem in the system. it's probably a tech glitch that really spooked scott walker. >> so it's interesting. because this happening in the same week when we saw other huge glitches in many systems across the country. so coincidence? or is there something else going on? something more nefarious behind all of this? >> after the tech problems with the "wall street journal," with united airlines and with the new york stock exchange it certainly makes you wonder. i've been investigating those all week. we haven't anything to connect the dots to those ones. even though it definitely looks suspicious it makes you wonder it doesn't look like anything like that. you also have to remember lots of people whether it's digital
10:07 am
producers for cnn or campaign workers, under these presidential candidates are using third party apps many of the time. so it could be one of these third party apps. presidential candidates are not perfect and neither is the technology they use. >> so what's the lesson here for everybody? in circumstances like this? this is just kind of the latest example of an inadvertent or unintentional message being sent out. but does this mean this really could happen to just about anyone? anyone? >> it happens to all of us quite frankly from time to time. lists of bad tweets that have been sent out, everything from anthony weiner to this this certainly is low on the list. but you have to hand it to the walker campaign. it looks like they're embracing it. they're saying stay tuned you. have to check out what we're saying monday. that's the only thing you can do when you have some type of accident on twitter. because once it's out, everyone takes a screen shot. it's almost impossible to delete
10:08 am
a tweet and have nobody retweet. you have to do what the walker campaign is doing and just keep on dancing with the music. >> all right. good advice. samuel burke, thanks so much. good to see you. new details about a deadly attack targeting isis in afghanistan. former taliban leader hafied syed also thought to be an isis leader in afghanistan and pakistan thought to be killed with a drone strike. intelligence says he was one of 30 insurgents killed in their strike on a compound in eastern afghanistan. a spokesman who says the leader who was killed is not the man, not the same man, who has a $10 million u.s. bounty on his head. still ahead, the fbi now says dylann roof never should have been able to buy a gun. he is accused and he's confessed to killing nine people in a charleston south carolina church. what's happening now as a result?
10:09 am
10:10 am
10:11 am
10:12 am
the fbi is now reviewing their own policy after dylann roof's background check was not followed through thoroughly. this after the agency admits roof should not have been able to purchase the gun he is accused of using in the charleston south carolina church shooting that left nine people dead. cnn's reporter live at the white house with the latest. >> reporter: fred, this is a big admission by the fbi that there was an error in the background check and dylann roof should never have been cleared to get that gun. fbi officials met with families of the victims this week to explain to them in person this mistake. the man who confessed to gunning down nine people inside a south carolina church should never have been able to buy the .45 caliber gun used in the slaughter. that admission coming from fbi director james comey who told reporters his bureau made a
10:13 am
mistake during dylann roof's background check, a mistake he said quote rips all of our hearts out. according to law enforcement officials, within days after the shooting agents on the ground knew something was amiss and suspected that roof's arrest record should have prohibited the gun purchase. >> it just shows how a bureaucratic mistake can cost human life. >> reporter: director comey says the fbi examiner during roof's background check didn't discover roof had previously admitted to illegally possessing drugs when he was arrested in late february. that information would have prevented roof from passing the background check. >> there's a regulation that says if he was a drug user he shouldn't have got a gun. and there was abundant information for the fbi to have had that information. had they had it, no gun sale and possibly no shooting here. >> reporter: comey says the fbi examiner failed to make contact with the columbia south carolina police department which arrested roof on the felony drug charge in part because of a clerical error that listed the
10:14 am
wrong police department in the online court system. after three days of waiting for the background check, the south carolina gun shop legally used its discretion to sell roof the gun, even though his status was still pending. senate judiciary chairman grassley said in a statement quote it's disastrous that this bureaucratic mistake prevented existing laws from working and blocking an illegal gun sale." but for the family of one charleston victim surprise and understanding. >> i thought being that it was a fbi check that they were very thorough. i was surprised they weren't very thorough. and so -- but i know people make mistakes. >> reporter: and there are already calls on capitol hill to make changes. senators chris murphy and senator blumenthal are calling on president obama to take some executive action. they want changes that would stop the gun dealers from being able to proceed and to sell weapons from people fred if
10:15 am
law enforcement needs more than a three days' time during the background check. >> thank you so much. joining me now from washington cnn law enforcement analyst tom fuentes. he's also a former fbi assistant director. good to see you, tom. so when you hear of an error like this whether it's a clerical error, whether someone didn't quite follow through with information, how often does something like this happen in this country? >> well the problem, fredricka, is you don't know how often. because not everybody that obtains a gun that they shouldn't have immediately goes out, kills nine people and gets arrested for it linking the gun to the murder. so we don't know what we don't know if a gun is misused that shouldn't have been obtained by somebody. but i think the problem in this thing is that it's kind of a complicated system to conduct this record check. and it required the examiner at the fbi to do a lot of trying to chase the information that wasn't immediately supplied.
10:16 am
in other words -- >> information supplied by a locality jurisdiction right? >> right. information was furnished by lexington county police. the majority of the city of columbia is in richmond county next door. and unfortunately when that information came in it said that there was a pending arrest. it did not say that he had admitted to drug use that. was in the police report. but it was not furnished immediately to the fbi. the examiner tried to get the disposition of the arrest. was he convicted? was there more to this? and unfortunately, the directory that was being used listed for that county the columbia wasn't in that county. west columbia was. and west columbia actually was where the gun was purchased. so the examiner checked with west columbia. they said we don't have any record. that was because it was in columbia in the adjoining county. so it sounds kind of complicated. and with more time it was eventually sorted out. but again as mentioned, you've
10:17 am
got three days. especially this one i think the purchase attempt was on a saturday. so they're talk about over a weekend trying to get information that's in a police report from a local police jurisdiction that wasn't readily furnished up front. >> and so it seems like trying to fix or correct this is going to be very difficult. it's not just one simple answer. because you're talking you've already just laid it out. there's so many different branches that are involved here. so then in a case like this where that local gun shop owner didn't necessarily receive any information by that third day, and it's legally at the discretion of the seller to then say okay let me assess this. i'm going to go ahead and sell to this individual. does that need to be fixed? >> that's true. he has the discretion. you could extend the period. the original justification for the three-day wait had less to do with background checks and more to do with people tend to
10:18 am
commit murders when they're really upset and angry. so it was to allow a cooling off period as well. so if a husband and wife have an enormous fight and one wants to kill the other they can't run to the gun shop come home an hour later and kill their spouse. >> i think it's the discretion part i'm wondering about. just when you have a checks and balances so to speak in place and then there's no reply, that doesn't necessarily raise a flag that oh, my gosh i haven't heard now from the fbi on this. or why is it? why is the onus now being put on the gun owner to make a determination as to whether this person is fit to buy a gun even though the fbi hasn't given a final stamp of approval or not? >> well the onus doesn't have to be on the gun dealership. i mean they could make this be a week or two weeks before the deadline that if they don't get a response, usually they get a response the same day or the
10:19 am
next day. if they don't get a response they can't sell it period. they have to wait. so that could simplify it just right there, that if this is taking a little more time to get to the facts, which this examiner needed in her situation, that if the fbi facility in west virginia and the other reason that there's a little bit of confusion here is not every state uses the fbi system. there are about 20 states that use their own state systems. you don't know what kind of quality control they have. that goes back to your first question that you don't know if somebody has already -- how many people are out there that have purchased weapons that they really weren't entitled to purchase but they just haven't been discovered yet. having the weapon or having used it to commit a murder. >> all right. very complicated. all right, thank you so much tom fuentes. all right. ahead, a horrible mystery in boston. the body of a little girl is found in a garbage bag. so who is she? a former senior fbi profiler takes a look at the evidence next.

over 50 million people have seen her picture on facebook. but police still don't know the identity of baby doe. the little girl's body was found wrapped in a zebra-striped blanket, and inside a trash bag along the shore of the boston harbor. more than 50 million people have viewed this composite sketch of the girl believed to be about 4
10:24 am
years old. hundreds of tips have come, in but so far none have panned out. cnn spoke with the district attorney on the case. >> if she looked like this in life i think we can all agree she's precious. she really deserves the dignity of a funeral and a burial and in her own name. >> joining me now is former fbi special agent and senior profiler mary allen o'toole who has worked on many high profile cases like the disappearances of elizabeth smart and natalie hollow way. good to see you. >> thank you. >> so baby doe had on fairly new clothing. her ears were pierced. it appears that she was cared for. and i know a lot of attention has been on the composite and what might anybody know about this little girl. but i wondered that kind of information, how much does that kind of information tell you about possibly the family of this little girl? >> well that information does
10:25 am
give insights for me into the caregivers or the family. we're not sure which it may end up being. but you have behavior that suggests that the child is taken care of. from what we know she's healthy. her weight and height are proportionate to a 3 or 4-year-old. that's a very good thing. and then you can contrast that with the callous behavior of putting a little child into a garbage bag and putting in the blanket and the tights and then taking that garbage bag and putting it into the bay and treating baby doe like she is garbage. so you've got the caring loving type of behavior and you compare that to the callousness. to me that would suggest we're dealing with two different people. in terms of how they deal with her. >> it is confusing. you're talking about the blanket, too. blanket you think comforting unless there is evidence on that blanket of course we haven't
10:26 am
heard anything about that. i'm sure they are going to try. maybe you can tell us about what kind of evidence you try to extrapolate from that blanket. but the blanket being put in there with. i mean it doesn't make any -- it doesn't make any sense when you talk about the callousness of yes in the bag, disposing of throwing away. but then these comforts in there with her. >> well yes. but if baby doe was already dead or baby doe was in the process of dying, the offender could have just shoved the blanket in there. so really at this point it's too speculative to say the blanket was done as something to comfort her, or she's already dead and they just shoved the evidence into the bag. >> getting rid of evidence. gotcha. >> right. >> okay. and then -- then what else are investigators trying to glean from this little bit of information that they have? i mean do you even wonder about the composite drawing and its
10:27 am
accuracies now of the composite drawing if you've got 50 million people who have viewed this image and no one has come forward with any kind of information that says i know something about this child. i can identify the child or the family or caregivers. >> sure. no i think it's a wonderful composite. and i think the artists at the national center for missing and exploited children have done a phenomenal job on this composite. but here's the situation. the reluctance of the people involved in this -- in this case that reluctance is disproportionately much stronger than their desire or their ability to come forward and tell us what happened. so there's reasons for that. those reasons could be for example, the people responsible are undocumented. people responsible know that they are responsible for her death and they don't want to get in trouble. a person responsible could have been threatened and continues to
10:28 am
be threatened not to come forward. but the longer this goes on what this tells me is that the circle around this small child was really very small to begin with. it's not typical of a 4-year-old child. and that in itself i think will be very helpful to law enforcement. she did not live in a typical environment if 50 million people are looking at this what appears to be almost a photograph and no one has come forward so far. >> and then really quickly before i let you go, perhaps you can help people. what is the behavior that people need to be looking out for? unusual behavior of anyone who may be involved with her disappearance? what kind of things do you think they would be doing at this juncture? is it as strange as seeing someone who's just disposing of a lot of children's i don't know belongings? i mean what are the things that people should be mindful of? >> well the first thing they would suggest is don't look for unusual behavior. what we find is we tell people
10:29 am
look for usual behaviors. and look for behaviors that you may have just ignored in the past. but in this case where i see that loving behavior compared with that callous behavior i would be looking at this point for a couple. and that would have drawn a wedge between these two individuals. so you would see that loving caring behavior is more female. and the callous is more male. so i'd be looking for a wedge between a couple because of this. the person that's loving and kind is probably under a tremendous amount of stress. because they didn't want this to happen. the other person is like this kept us from getting into trouble. that relationship between those two people is going to be very problematic. >> also troubling mary ellen o'toole, thank you so much. >> you're welcome. coming up, what this cancer doctor did to hundreds of patients and then how a federal court is making him pay for it.

a detroit-area doctor is headed to prison for giving cancer treatment drugs to more than 500 patients who did not need them. some who did not even have cancer. dr. farid fata was sentenced friday to 45 years in prison. many victims and their families say that's not enough time. jonathan carlson from cnn affiliate wxyz reports. >> so sorry for all you went through. >> reporter: tears and hugs come

10:35 am
>> 45 years for the lives that he took. >> it wasn't enough. all the victims? my sister's gone. it just wasn't enough. >> reporter: prosecutors wanted what the families wanted 175 years. >> we believed that nothing short of a life sentence was appropriate in this case because the harm was so egregious. >> reporter: but for families they concede prison terms will never bring complete closure. >> can't bring any of them back. can't heal the hurt. >> reporter: so where do these men and women go from here? they're still trying to figure that out. >> hopefully move on somewhat or try to now. >> it's been a very long road. and a very hard journey for all of us. >> our thanks to jonathan carlson with wxyz for that report. all right. still ahead, serena williams has won her sixth wimbledon title, completing her second serena slam. details next.

thmpblgt breaking news. the salty brine beach in narangasett, rhode island has been evacuated after a woman was injured in an explosion this morning. a spokesperson for the department of environmental management tells cnn the explosion, i'm quoting now, the explosion came from under the sand and knock add 50-year-old
10:40 am
woman onto the rocks. the narangasett police department bomb squad responded and is at the scene right now. the injured woman has been taken to the hospital. there is no word on the extent of her injuries at this time. of course we don't know what caused the explosion as yet. but we will of course keep you updated on the story as soon as information becomes available. also today marking the first full day in 54 years atthat the confederate batting flag has not flown on the grounds of south carolina's capital. the flag came down yesterday in a ceremony led by governor nikki haley. she sat down to talk about the historical event. >> this is a surreal moment. standing out there and watching that flag come down. it felt like the biggest weight was lifted off the state. it just felt so -- it's like the state -- it's a true new day in south carolina. it feels like a new day in south
10:41 am
carolina. >> you have said this. and i don't know if it's in the exact words. but you have all done this. because you weren't always on the side of taking this down. but i think it takes a big person to change their mind. >> it wasn't that i wasn't for taking it down. first of all, south carolina very much respects history. respects tradition. and so the flag has just always been up there. so when i came into office, to have a two-thirds vote threshold was a huge one. and it's not a republican-democrat, white-black. there hadn't been a bill filed to bring that flag down since 2007. there was so much of a divide and so much hurt in the compromise of 2000 that no one wanted to talk about it. so it was almost like people just assumed it was going to be there. >> you've used the words in the signing of this bill you said tradition, you said history, you said respect and love and forgiveness. it has to have been hard to strike a balance. because not everyone was on the side that you were on. >> it's important for people to
10:42 am
know what it's like to be in another person's shoes. and if you watch the legislative debate that's what happened. people put themselves in each other's shoes. so they understood what the respect of tradition and heritage was and that it wasn't about hate. but the other side also learned how painful that flag was and the pain thought was causing people. that's what brought south carolina to this new day was the ability to look at each other and listen and say, it's time. >> you're an immigrant. your family you grew up here. >> born and raised in south carolina. but the daughter of indian parents. >> does that -- does it mean more to you? does it make you more connected to this issue? do you have a special feeling about it? >> we grew up an indian family in a small town in south carolina. my father wears a turbin. my mother in the town wore an sari. it was hard growing up in south carolina. but what i've always been proud of and what i've worked towards is to make sure that today is better than yesterday, and that my kids don't go through what we
10:43 am
went through. and now i feel good because now i know my kids can look up and there won't be a flag. and it will be one less reason to divide. and it will be more reasons for us to come together. >> now, as i understand you went up and looked over at the flag in the capital this morning. it was important for you to do that. why? >> i just needed to see it one last time. i needed -- i wanted to remember the moment. so much of this has been a whirlwind over the last several weeks. it's been extremely emotional. but i just needed to see what was about to happen. >> this flag went up in 1962 correct? do you think it was a sort of poke in the eye to the civil rights movement? >> you know i'm not going to try and figure out why people did what they did. i think the more important part is it just never should have been there. and i think that even when it was on the grounds of the state house it was right in front. and these grounds are a place that everybody should feel a
10:44 am
part of. these grounds are a place that belong to the people of south carolina. and what i realize now more than ever is people were driving by and they felt hurt and pain. no one should feel pain. we can have our disagreements and we can have our policy back and forth. but no one should feel pain over something. not over a symbol. >> all right. south carolina governor nikki haley there talking after that historic moment of the confederate flag being taken down off the grounds of the state capital. all right. still to come a new report is out on the new york police department's controversial stop and frisk policy. and it's raising additional concerns. hear why next. what to do when you're stranded in a city and you need a last minute hotel? a priceline tonight only deal! stuck out on the range? nowhere to rest your beard? choose from thousands of hand-picked hotel deals at the very last minute. only on your phone. only from priceline.

a federal monitor in charge of reviewing the new york police department's controversial stop and frisk program has issued his first report. and it's revealing new information about the police practice that is raising concerns. here's cnn's sarah ganon. >> reporter: the numbers show controversial stop question and frisk encounters are down in new york city. but not for the reasons you'd think. the first report examining the nypd since stop and frisk tactics were found to be unconstitutional shows that new york city police officers aren't properly documenting their encounters with the public. peter zimroth, the former
10:49 am
federal prosecutor tasked with developing remedies for stop and frisk, also found officers are not confident or are misinformed about the policy. and so they're failing to make stops when they should. back in december mayor bill deblasio said the revisions to stop and frisk were working. >> we have driven down crime. we have seen substantial decreases in the stop and frisk approach. and substantial decreases in low-level marijuana arrests. so a lot of change is happening, and that change is happening while at the same time the city is becoming safer. fewer complaints by new york city residents to civilian complaint review board. >> reporter: the policy peaked under mayor michael bloomberg's administration. then police could detain question even search people if they suspected foul play. it was widely credited with dramatically reducing crime. however, a 2013 report by the

context is important here fred. new york city's police force is the largest police force in the country. it sets a tone especially after months and months across the country of protests over how police officers interact with the public. fred? >> all right, thank you so much. let's talk more about this. joining me now from philadelphia is a 28-year veteran of federal, state, and local law enforcement, matthew horace. good to see you. what do you believe has happened here? why are the numbers down in your view? >> good afternoon. as you know a program like this needs several things to succeed. first, it needs proper training. the officers need to understand what's expected to bring crime down while not violating the rights of citizens. number two, it needs careful and adequate monitoring and number three, it needs careful execution and executive leadership at the top. the numbers don't lie.
10:52 am
the data can be manipulated, but in this case we need to pay attention to what the numbers say, go back to the drawing board. and what i heard you say was that mayor de blasio and chief bratton are going back and retraining officers on what they need doing. >> yeah you heard our sarahreporter on that. is it an issue of communication? is it an issue of it's not being documented? or is it just the case? >> well you know after 28 years of law enforcement, what i found is that my colleagues although i love them to death, will find a way to get around anything. and in this case there's several factors. number one, it's probably being documented less. people aren't being stopped less because that's what police officers are paid to do. number two, the data can be skewed in a couple different ways and we might not be getting total accurate data. and let's face it. every law enforcement organization in the world is looking for progressive and unique ways to bring crime down. i don't know if stop and frisk is the answer but it's what we
10:53 am
have to live with at the moment in new york city. >> what do you think is next given this information, whether there are discrepe piancies in the findings. >> chief bratton is a very experienced law enforcement leader. i think they will examine the data analyze it and determine what has to be next if there are changes that need to be made officers need to be retrained, and not just retrained on what the elements of the process are, but retrained as to what their jobs are and how to do their jobs properly in the context of stop and frisk. >> all right. matthew horace thanks so much for being with us. >> have a great day, fredricka. >> all right, you, too. we'll be right back. their type 2 diabetes... ...with non-insulin victoza. for a while, i took a pill to lower my blood sugar but it didn't get me to my goal. so i asked my doctor about victoza. he said victoza works differently than pills and comes in a pen. victoza is proven to lower blood sugar and a1c. it's taken once a day, any time.

and the needle is thin. victoza is not for weight loss but it may help you lose some weight. victoza is an injectable prescription medicine that may improve blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes when used with diet and exercise. it is not recommended as the first medication to treat diabetes and should not be used in people with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. victoza has not been studied with mealtime insulin. victoza is not insulin. do not take victoza if you have a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2, or if you are allergic to victoza or any of its ingredients. symptoms of a serious allergic reaction may include swelling of face lips, tongue or throat fainting or dizziness, very rapid heartbeat problems breathing or swallowing, severe rash or itching. tell your doctor if you get a lump or swelling in your neck. serious side effects may happen in people who take victoza including inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis) which may be fatal.
10:55 am
stop taking victoza and call your doctor right away if you have signs of pancreatitis, such as severe pain that will not go away in your abdomen or from your abdomen to your back with or without vomiting. tell your doctor about all the medicines you take and if you have any medical conditions. taking victoza with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. the most common side effects are nausea, diarrhea, and headache. some side effects can lead to dehydration, which may cause kidney problems. if your pill isn't giving you the control you need... ask your doctor about non-insulin victoza. it's covered by most health plans.

her sixth and her 21st grand slam title. now, on paper, it looked like this would be an easy match-up for the world number one against the world number 20 of spain, who was competing in only her first ever grand slam final. but it didn't pan out that way, and serena had to battle back twice to stay in this game often screaming out in frustration at points that went wide. she hit serves of up to 123 miles per hour. that's faster than some of the men on this tour and eventually she dominated. 6-4, 6-4, the final result. now, all eyes will turn to the u.s. open and that's because serena is in with a chance of taking that calendar grand slam. that's all four grand slams in one year. and it's something that hasn't been done since steffi graf back in 1988. and i tell you what you wouldn't bet against her, and that's because serena has won 24 -- 21 grand slam finals and lost only four.
