5:05 am
knocked off course in the election's final days. the new f-b-i email inquiry began during another investigation of her aide's estranged husband, anthony weiner. during a rally in the battleground state of florida, the former secretary of state told supporters she wasn't going to get distracted. she says she's more focused on voters' issues. "what keeps you up at night, that's what i'm interested in and that is what i am gonna be talking about here today and next 9 days - there's a lot of noise and distraction but really comes down to what kind of future we want." clinton also slammed trump's lack of charitable giving. she singled out a washington post report that trump attended a fundraiser for young children with h-i-v but never donated money. donald trump is calling for the u-s to engage in more extreme interrogation methods. trump made the comments during
5:06 am
yesterday. he described the tactics isis uses on prisoners and says the u-s should allow waterboarding. president obama barred the use of the interrogation technique, but trump says it is now a necessity. "we're fighting on a different level. we're fighting on a different level folks, and we have to be tough and we have to be smart. and we have to be, in some cases, pretty vicious, to be honest with you. pretty vicious.

"we live in an area where we have freeze-thaw cycles that happen quite often so there needs to be some texture on the concrete to keep people
5:07 am
garages have that. hard lots have that. so offering the multi-texture brush allows customers to go from one job to the other job, apply a soft texture to a medium texture depending on what job they're doing.

tract infection, don't expect it to actually work. as abc news' dr. timothy johnson reports, experts are now saying it's time to move on from cranberries as a form of self-treatment. cranberries are a must at thanksgiving dinner. and their juice?a must for many women as anage old remedy for urinary tract infections. a simple, natural treatment, passed down through the generations. what woman hasn't been told to drink it for the occasional, annoying
5:26 am
a pill form that claims to have the part of the cranberry that fights off the bacteria, without the juice part. but does it work, if it's in a pill? researchers at yale studied urine samples of 185 women with infections. they either took cranberry tablets or a placebo pill with no active ingredient - and weren't told which one they were getting. over the course of a year, the cranberry tablets didn't have any effect on utis. so despite all the lore around the healing like, at least in capsule form, cranberry doesn't do much except cost you money. the study was limited to older women in nursing homes, so it may not apply to everyone? and grandma is probably right about a lot of things. but the next time you suspect a u.t.i., you're probably better off heading to your doctor than buying a bottle of cranberry pills. with this medical minute, i'm dr. timothy johnson.

"45:40someone's in there. i could literally hear music from laying right here. my bed was right here. i could literally hear music." marissa villhauer and her mother cindy moved into this apartment more than ten years ago. and ever since they've
5:32 am
music definitely isn't coming from them. they tracked it to this door, which leads to a back apartment. but the door is sealed shut. "38:37i would hear radios at night and stuff, so i told the landlord, i said, there's radios going on back there.. he's like nah nah, and i said no really." so, they checked it out. no one was back there, there's not even electricity in that room. the music, lamps falling over, and unexplained knocking... all drove villhauer to reach out to scott johnston and cedar rapids paranormal. the team investigates hauntings all across eastern iowa... searching for proof of the paranormal. while the team believes in ghosts, their free investigations aren't out to prove they exist. "54:24we're not here to actucally hunt for spiri, validation for clients who contact us with real issues." it starts with an interview, then an overnight stay. johnston and his team spend a lot of time listening, walking the home, and trying to communicate with a wide variety of equipment. "56:30whether it was footsteps, slamming doors, things moving, voices, i wanted to have something in our kit to be able to pull out and say okay we have something to document this, we have something scientific no matter what it is." that means electromagne tic field detectors, night vision cameras, motion detectors, voice recorders, and they're favorite the sls camera.

around a 3d grid that it interprets as a human form, it will map it as a stick figure. we've had some really amazing validating captures on that." johnston showed me how the camera works in action. "19:55watch right up here.." this video is from a home in reinbeck. the camera is set up in the living room. you can see a stuffed bear laced with sensors sitting on the couch. that bear is used to communicate with the paranormal, it talk when something gets near it. if you look near the top of the couch, you will see a figure appear. you can see its arms and legs moving johnston's team asks the anomaly to touch the bear. shortly, it turns toward it. moves down near it johnston said this is one of the more rare cases a client has contacted him about. "4:16she said that they're little girl was getting up in the middle of the night and clawing at the plaster in her room. she said that she was being told by two evil little kid spirits to do this." the family had the child psychiatrically evaluated, and she passed. after ruling that out, they took the case. this is another video from that home. here's johnston sitting in the master bedroom, and here's a camera sitting outside the door. when you place them side by side, you can see what
5:34 am
latched.. and suddenly something happens. "10:26the people that contact us, homeowners and businesses they believe that what they're experiencing is very very real. the experiences they are having are real to them in terms of how it affects them. its affecting their lives, its affecting their children, its affecting their family lives, their sleep." johnston says he understands why others wouldn't believe, but he asks them to consider one thing. "11:26would we go through the trouble of going to a client's location, sometimes driving four to six hour round trips, motel rooms, gas, all this equipment, setting it up, doing the long investigation work, unbelievable hours of evidence review, coming back for reveals, coming backr uld we really do that to only ay those clips to say here'sthid r mom, ehen't seen the evidence yet, but she ey're ghosts? marissa: yeah,ah
