6:00 am
6:01 am
oh, mariah carey. >> we're missing some of the vocal but it is what it is. >> mariah carey melting down in a major lip sync fail in front of millions. >> i want a holiday too. can i not have one? >> the new details this morning about what really happened on that new year's stage. >> that was -- good morning, america. happy new year. we are right back here live in times square and what a different scene from new year's eve. more than a million people were here then. you see it's empty right now. there's the scene new year's eve when mariah carey's performance got so much attention. >> yeah, the ball dropped a little earlier than they were anticipating. a tough moment on the stage, one of the many perils of live tv. ryan seacrest saying no matter
6:02 am
what mariah carey does, the crowd absolutely loves it. they were for the most part supportive. we are going to begin with that manhunt in turkey for the terrorists who killed at least 39 people celebrating new year's at a nightclub in istanbul. overnight isis claimed responsibility for the attack and officials now warning americans to be on alert. alex marquardt is on the scene. >> reporter: overnight isis put out a statement claiming that the shooter is one of their soldiers as they call them. he is still at large. isis claimed that this attack was in response to turkish actions against them in syria, but also because this club is, quote, where christians celebrate their apostate holiday, meaning new year's. an urgent manhunt for this man, caught by surveillance cameras as he fired his way into istanbul's reina nightclub. just 75 minutes earlier, the
6:03 am
scene was like so many new year's parties around the world. around 600 revellers counting down, waving sparklers, cheers as the new year is ringing in. but at 1:15 a.m., bullets ricocheted after the street as the shooter dressed in dark clothes fired an automatic weapon and rushed the door. this graphic cctv video showing the man shooting at people at the entrance to the club before storming inside. there, the rampage lasted seven horrific minutes. the suspect, authorities believe, then changed clothes to blend in and slip away. this morning, at least 39 people have been confirmed killed, including more than two dozen foreigners. dozens more were wounded, including 35-year-old american jake raak in istanbul on vacation, who was carried away on a stretcher after being shot in the leg. >> i don't know, i saw one person. they're shooting. >> reporter: his brother saying the bullet may have hit raak's cell phone and prevented and more serious injury. during those terrifying minutes,
6:04 am
several wnba players were celebrating the new year next door. essence carson tweeting, stuck inside the club because of terror shooting in istanbul. later, carson deleted the tweet and confirmed that she and two other teammates were safe. this shooting is just the latest in a string of deadly incidents to hit this country in the past few months. this new year is starting off with what many are calling a massacre, more of those killed in this attack are being laid to rest and the funerals today, most of them are muslims. robin? >> thank you. now to that bad weather moving in this new year. dozens of homes damaged in florida by high winds and now there are new warnings about tornadoes and flash flooding across the southeast. ginger is here and she's tracking that storm's path for us. >> robin, that was just the first storm. so a volatile start to the new year in parts of florida. you can see that tree ripped up there. look at this video, near
6:05 am
pensacola, florida, where all those trees onto homes and cars. now we have another round of severe storms moving through. right now it's in texas between dallas and austin. we've already seen an 82 mile per hour wind gust. dfw already this morning, they had a ground stop thanks to rain and high winds. a large area, parts of florida again in the panhandle there and parts of alabama, back into mississippi, louisiana, all in the enhanced risk, so you could see more damaging wind, even tornadoes and some hail too as we go into the afternoon hours. flash flooding is the other threat, so, george, flash flood potential anywhere kind of in that same region. look at central georgia, atlanta to the north is what we're watching. >> they are going to get hit hard. thanks very much. we move now to the latest in the trump transition. less than three weeks from inauguration, the president-elect is promising to release new information on the election hacking that u.s. intelligence pins on russia. trump continues to question the findings saying he knows things others don't. and abc's mary bruce is at the white house with the story. good morning, mary. >> reporter: good morning, george.
6:06 am
after ringing in the new year at his annual florida bash the president-elect is back home in new york where he's expected to receive a briefing from intelligence officials on the russian hacking. trump is still skeptical and this morning that cliffhanger, trump promising there's more to come. a new year, a new pushback from donald trump. >> i know a lot about hacking and hacking is a very hard thing to prove so it could be somebody else. >> reporter: the president-elect still doubting u.s. intelligence and questioning if russia interfered in the u.s. election. >> i want them to be sure. i think it's unfair if they don't know. >> reporter: 17 u.s. intelligence agencies concluded russia was behind the hacking, but trump suggests there's more to the story. >> i also know things that other people don't know, and so they cannot be sure of the situation. >> what do you know that other people don't know? >> you'll find out on tuesday or wednesday. >> reporter: but on this week, the top democrat on the house intelligence committee told our jonathan karl the evidence is iron clad. >> it's very solid, indeed overwhelming. if he's going to have any credibility as president, he needs to stop talking this way. >> reporter: president obama has
6:07 am
already counterpunched, closing two lavish russian diplomatic retreats in the u.s. and evicting dozens of russian diplomats and their families. almost 100 people in all. overnight their plane touching down in moscow. trump has said it's time to move on. >> i think we ought to get on with our lives. >> reporter: but now his team is questioning the white house's motivation and asking if the punishment fits the crime. >> there is a question about whether there's a political retribution here, whether it's -- versus a diplomatic response. >> reporter: even some republicans say it wasn't tough enough. >> we will be working for much tougher sanctions against russia. they attacked the united states of america. >> reporter: but trump says there's only one way for sure to protect from cyberattacks. >> write it out and have it delivered by courier, the old-fashioned way, because i'll tell you what, no computer is safe. >> reporter: and this morning, there are new concerns that the
6:08 am
russians may have also been targeting the american electrical system, a code linked to the russians was found on a laptop associated with a vermont utility. but there are no signs that the hackers penetrated the power grid itself. george? >> okay, mary, thanks. let's get more on the intelligence and the politics from our analysts, steve ganyard and matthew dowd. steve, you spent a lot of time dealing with national security and intelligence when you were in the government. first, let's talk about this new threat to the electric grid. again, no signs that it actually penetrated the grid in vermont but this is a serious threat. >> it is a serious threat for all of the infrastructure around the u.s. and around the world, george, for things like power supply and things like that. but what we saw in vermont, there were definitely russian fingerprints on that, but one of the interesting things about malware is it's becoming commoditized. you can actually buy it in the dark resays of the internet, so it could have been russia, china, north korea, iran. i think what's going to happen here is that the intelligence community is not going to release the sources and methods that allow them to draw conclusions that it was definitely russian.
6:09 am
>> right, they're not going to release the sources. we could get the new report, the full report on russian involvement as early as this week. you see that donald trump is questioning the intelligence. based on your experience, how solid is it? >> again, it's hard to say what the white house released about last week was not conclusive. it didn't show intent. it was very thin on details. so there's a push/pull going on within the intelligence community right now about how much to release. and until we get more definitive detail we're not going to be able to make that determination. >> and matthew, you heard from donald trump over the weekend saying he knows things that others don't. he's continued to question this intelligence and praised vladimir putin for withholding any response to the u.s. sanctions and actions that president obama took last week. he's playing a tricky game here because he's going to face pressure from republicans to respond to putin as well. >> well, yeah. he sounds a little like that "saturday night live" character jon lovitz played where he says
6:10 am
something and he says, yeah, that's the ticket. he makes up stuff and then later on doesn't prove it. i think the fascinating thing about this is for years republicans have said barack obama did not respond strong enough to russia. now, as of yesterday the republican response, or at least donald trump's response i should say is that he responded too overwhelmingly which is an amazing situation after russia it looks like committed an act of cyber war and undermined one of the most fundamental principles of our country which is our democratic election. >> so the question will be, does he change his tune after getting the intelligence briefing later this week? >> well, i think that's a really good question, and the other thing i think donald trump has to realize is somebody needs to tell him, as he said don't use computers, use courier. i don't know if he wants to go back to the pony express. this is a computer that donald trump is on every day sending messages to the american public, so somebody might want to tell donald trump that what he holds in his hand is also a computer. >> sean spicer says the tweets are going to continue.
6:11 am
thanks very much. we move on now to a deadly mid-air accident. two planes colliding over texas on new year's eve killing at least three people. an investigation is now under way. abc's ryan smith is here with details. good morning, ryan. >> good morning, robin. overnight the ntsb investigating this harrowing crash so violent people forced to take cover as debris fell from the sky. a terrifying mid-air crash. cell phone video capturing flames and a dark plume of smoke as one plane crashed into a storage unit. the other into this busy shopping center parking lot. >> it looked like they were doing acrobatic maneuvers. one of the wings had been clipped off. >> reporter: two of the three victims identified this morning. gregory barber, a retired air force kernel, and his 18-year-old son tim. moments after he took off and into his first turn, a plane struck his tail. >> one of the planes slid into the other one.
6:12 am
>> reporter: this scene so tough to watch, you can hear someone in this video telling a little girl to close her eyes. >> honey, i understand, but just close your eyes. >> reporter: charles drexler saw the crash, capturing this video moments later. >> they hit so hard. you can tell that they were going really fast and there was a big explosion. >> reporter: the faa confirming both pilots were operating under visual flight rules, meaning visibility must be several miles so pilots can see potential issues and avoid them. >> and you heard a loud crashing bang and two of the planes -- one of them basically came pretty much straight down. the other one had a little control but he was coming down. there was no stopping him. >> reporter: the barbers respected in their community. 18-year-old son tim barber just recently entering air force academy. additional ntsb investigators are expected on the ground today. >> breaks your heart. ryan, thank you very much. amy has this morning's other top story starting with new
6:13 am
details in another air tragedy. there are new clues in the search for a private jet that vanished with a family on board. police are investigating a bag that might be from the plane that disappeared over lake erie over cleveland. there have been multiple reports of debris from plane washing ashore. six people were on the plane. including the pilot, his wife and two teenage sons. breaking overnight, another deadly suicide blast in iraq this morning. a bomber in a pick-up truck packed with explosives targeting a market in baghdad killing at least 18 people. this follows two other attacks in the city that left near 40 dead. suicide bombers may be to blame for two big explosions that rocked the somalian capital this morning. going off near mogadishu airport. one blast damaged a hotel frequented by foreigners, and the other hit a security check point, killing at least three people. chicago has unveiled a new crime-fighting strategy after a record rise in violence. the city ended 2016 with nearly 800 homicides. that is the most in 20 years,
6:14 am
and more than new york and los angeles combined. l.a. police are looking for the man who changed the iconic hollywood sign early new year's morning to read, as you see there, hollyweed. it was seen in surveillance video. the sign was quickly fixed but not before everyone got pictures for instagram. that's where i saw it this weekend. and finally, three families are celebrating a very special new year's. they each have newborn twins, but here's the catch. they were born in separate years. in san diego two girls were born four minutes apart on either side of midnight. in salt lake city, baby james came in at 11: 59. his brother matthew at 12:01. in glendale baby shay arrived at 11:51. his brother baby everett followed the next year at one past midnight. so the twins will share just about everything except the year they were born. >> that's a bonus.
6:15 am
they get separate birthdays. >> i agree. >> good way to start the year. now to that new year's eve performance getting so much for what went wrong. there you see mariah carey. we're learning more about what happened when she took the stage here in times square. t.j. holmes here with all the details. >> george, good morning to you. this is one of those things you couldn't turn away from for all the wrong reasons. one of the most successful singers in history appeared to be unable or unwilling to sing. well, mariah carey blames an equipment problem. the production team says there was a problem, it was mariah carey. mariah's new year's eve disaster began just seconds into her hit "emotions." ♪ >> all right. we didn't have a check for this song, so we'll just say, it went to number one and that's what it is. >> reporter: while her vocals
6:16 am
played in the background, the pop princess strolled up and down the stage not singing as the music continued and as 11 million people watched at home. >> we didn't have a sound check but it's new year's, baby. it's okay, you guys. all right, just for laughs, the lift. i want a holiday, too. can i not have one? i'm trying to be a good sport here. ♪ that was -- amazing. >> reporter: her next tune "we belong together" seemed to get off to a better start, but then as the vocals played, she put the mike down. ♪ finally after six minutes, mariah walked off.
6:17 am
>> yes! and -- it just don't get any better. >> reporter: but the fallout was just beginning. mariah carey's people accused dick clark productions, which produces abc's new year's rockin' eve with ryan seacrest, of sabotaging her performance. her representative says her ear piece wasn't working and the pop star was set up to fail. dick clark products responded, as the premiere producer of the live television events for nearly 50 years, we pride ourselves on our reputation. to suggest we would ever intentionally compromise the success of any artist is defamatory, outrageous and frankly absurd. mariah seemed to be taking it in stride. she posted this of herself shrugging and saying blank happens. here's to making more headlines in 2017. we might never know whose fault it was for the technical issue but to the audience who doesn't
6:18 am
understand, i was listening to you guys, and the audience can hear it but without this i'm blind. this is what happens to a singer out there. if she can't hear her music, she doesn't know what pitch to be in. she was blind. >> even though the music is blaring -- >> she can't hear it. she can hear the crowd. >> there's crowd noise and feedback with those huge speakers and she doesn't know where she is in the song. >> kudos to her dancers. >> they kept going. >> they kept going. >> and she did make a lot of headlines. >> no such thing as bad publicity, right? >> she has a show, y'all know. >> don't call it a reality show. she checked ryan seacrest. >> you checked me real fast. happy 2017, robin. just like last year. let's go back to ginger. >> okay, a quick look at the winter weather advisory just outside new york city. careful if you're driving in the pink or purple. let's get to those select cities brought to you by macy's.
6:19 am
and coming up here on "gma,"
6:20 am
a new twist in that murder case involving kennedy cousin michael skakel and the death of his neighbor more than 40 years ago. will he now be sent back to prison? and the right to disconnect. the new law rolling out overseas about unplugging from work after you leave the office. are we in the u.s. about to see a big change? is it going to happen here? big board. see a change? is it going to happen here? big board. i sure had a lot to think about. what about the people i care about? ...including this little girl. and what if this happened again? i was given warfarin in the hospital, but wondered, was this the best treatment for me? so i asked my doctor. and he recommended eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. yes, eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. both made me turn around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve
6:21 am
or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily ...and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made eliquis the right treatment for me. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you. that trop50 could taste so good and still have 50% fewer calories. can i stop, jane? no. trop50. tastes so good you won't believe it has 50% fewer calories.

6:31 am
and president-elect donald trump back in trump tower after spending the days in mar-a-lago. we're 18 days away from the inauguration. gio benitez is outside in times square with our crowd and getting ready to reveal the best touchscreen gloves for the winter. which ones work on tablets and phones in cold temperatures? he's going to test it out for us. >> that is coming up. we begin with that new twist for kennedy cousin michael skakel who may be heading back to prison on murder charges following the killing of his neighbor. amy, you have new details on why the court is reinstating his conviction. >> that's right. you might remember he spent ten years behind bars for the murder of martha moxley. until that conviction was overturned in 2013. now he is facing this new court ruling, just the latest wrinkle in a four-decade long saga. this morning, kennedy cousin michael skakel is once again a convicted murderer. the connecticut supreme court reinstating his conviction for the 1975 murder of martha moxley, skakel's 15-year-old neighbor who was found dead,
6:32 am
brutally beaten with a golf club belonging to the skakel family. the nephew of ethel kennedy was found guilty and was sentenced to 20 years to life in 2002. after serving over ten years in prison, a judge threw out that conviction in 2013. >> i'm going to set a bond of $1.2 million. >> reporter: ruling that skakel's original defense attorney, mickey sherman, botched his defense, a finding the state supreme court now disagrees with. >> of course i feel vindicated. i always knew that i did a decent job. >> reporter: one of skakel's strongest advocates, his cousin, robert kennedy jr. >> he had a terrible lawyer. he didn't get a fair trial and he's not guilty. >> reporter: skakel as always maintained his innocence. >> what i do every day is pray to god and to martha that whoever did this crime is brought to justice. >> reporter: but moxley's family says they believe the jury got it right in 2002. this morning her brother telling abc news, "we are happy with the
6:33 am
decision and appreciative as always with the effort the state of connecticut has put into this." now skakel's current lawyer is hoping to keep his 56-year-old client out of prison while they consider whether to appeal again. >> michael skakel is a man of great faith and i think he'll use his spirituality to compose himself in a way that makes him available to counsel and helpful to us in moving forward and deciding what our next steps are going to be. >> skakel has been living with an elderly relative in the suburb of new york since being released on that $1.2 million bond. george. let's talk to nancy about this. nancy, you've been covering this trial for a long time. we know skakel's new attorney is not going to give up keeping his out of prison. will he succeed? >> i think that temporarily he may succeed, but i don't think it will work in the end. and when i hear that skakel has always maintained his innocence, publicly yes, but according to
6:34 am
prosecutors, there may be up to 11 different confessions. most importantly, the handful that came in at the trial, including several that he made at a reform school after the murder, as well as to a driver, maybe even a barber. and that weighed very heavily on the juror's minds, so he hasn't necessarily always maintained his innocence. those so-called confessions go from saying i murdered her to i murdered her i'm going to get away with it because i'm a kennedy to i don't know what happened that night, maybe i did it. that's pretty damming evidence. >> when his conviction was overturned in 2013, a new trial was ordered but never happened. does this new ruling cancel any prospect of a new trial? >> no. i think that it's very possible this will go up on another appeal. in the end, i think that he will go back to jail.
6:35 am
there may not even be a new trial. and i think the defense is going to use every trick in the book, as they should. he has a right to every avenue under the law, but i can tell you this much, having tried so many cases i can't even count them, all of them felonies, the victim's mother, martha moxley is the victim, her mother dorothy wants justice. and having sat through every single proceeding, she is convinced that thomas skakel, the kennedy relative, is the killer. i cannot imagine why the victim's mother would want someone not guilty behind bars. i find that very, very probative, as did a jury. remember, a jury has heard this and voted guilty. >> amazing that this has been going on now for, what, almost 40 years, more than 40 years. >> it's crazy. >> so, what kind of toll does this take on the family? >> yeah, because this happened -- oh, can you even imagine? it's like it never ends.
6:36 am
this happened in 1975. martha moxley, then 15 years old, was found bludgeoned dead with a golf club from the skakel home, and somebody took the "s" off the golf club. they did not want it associated to the skakels. who else would care about that other than a skakel? she was found the next morning, and even then skakel, michael skakel said he lied because he thought he would be framed for murder. now, how would he know that at age 15 that he was going to be framed for murder? and not only that, he placed himself at the scene by blaming -- claiming he masturbated at the scene to maybe cover up any evidence there. that weighed against him and now all these years later back in court. >> nancy grace, thanks very much. now to a new lawsuit involving facetime. a couple is suing apple saying their daughter was killed when a driver allegedly using facetime ran into their car.
6:37 am
abc's linsey davis is here with that story. good morning, linsey. >> good morning, robin. the little girl who died in that crash was just 5 years old. her parents believe she would still be alive today if apple implemented an iphone featured that would have automatically disabled facetime based on technology that calculate highway speeds. this morning apple is under fire after this fatal car crash in dallas. the family of 5-year-old moriah modisette is now suing the tech giant. claiming facetime caused the fatal accident. the driver, garrett wilhelm, was allegedly using the apple app when he crashed into the modisette's car in 2014. wilhelm is now charged with manslaughter. >> apple knew better and did not do better. >> reporter: modisette's attorneys claim apple had technology to lock out the ability of drivers to utilize
6:38 am
the facetime application on the iphone while driving a motor vehicle but did not install it and never warned users of the potential dangers. >> apple could have prevented the senseless death of this 5-year-old girl on christmas eve if this technology had been used. >> reporter: we reached out to apple for comment but the company does not comment on pending litigation and has not yet filed a legal response to the lawsuit. >> i believe they will take the position that to the extent anyone is responsible for the injuries caused by this lawsuit, it's the actual driver of the car and not their product. >> reporter: the attorney for the driver released a statement saying the wilhelm family is confident that after all facts are brought out in court, it will be shown that the use of a cellular device did not contribute and mr. wilhelm did not commit a crime, it's simply an accident. we've seen this technology before. it will say are you the driver or the passenger. if you say you're the driver it will not let you continue on. that's their point. >> yeah, but you could still be the driver.
6:39 am
>> and many people do say -- right, exactly. >> i don't know how that is -- at least it's something. it makes you think, you're right. thanks, linsey. coming up on our big board, the new headline from the government about pacemakers and hacking. plus, should you be allowed to ignore work e-mails once you leave the office. there's a new law overseas. we'll tell you about it when we come back in two minutes. new law overseas. we'll tell you about it when we come back in two minutes. ...one of many pieces in my life. so when my asthma symptoms kept coming back on my long-term control medicine. i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece in my asthma treatment with breo.
6:40 am
once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. breo won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems. breo is specifically designed to open up airways to improve breathing for a full 24 hours. breo contains a type of medicine that increases the risk of death from asthma problems and may increase the risk of hospitalization in children and adolescents. breo is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. once your asthma is well controlled, your doctor will decide if you can stop breo and prescribe a different asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. do not take breo more than prescribed. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse. ask your doctor if 24-hour breo could be a missing piece for you. learn more about better breathing at mybreo.com.
6:41 am
back now with our big board. tory johnson right here with us. happy new year. >> happy new year. >> we're going to begin with new action from the fda to deal with a potentially deadly cyber threat. could hackers break into medical devices like pacemakers? you may remember seeing that play out in an episode of "homeland." take a look. >> oh!
6:42 am
call the doctor. >> they got the vice-president's pacemaker. former fbi agent brad garrett joins us now. that was fiction, brad, but millions of americans use pacemakers, so how vulnerable are they and how would a hacking play out? >> george, they are extremely vulnerable. a number of white-hat hackers have been hired by the mayo clinic and others to look at the devices in their hospitals. and they virtually were able to hack every device that they looked at. it is a really epidemic problem that we don't talk a lot about. >> and brad, you know, george also mentioned about the fda. what is the fda doing and others to do something against these threats? >> well, here's the issue. the fda has issued recommendations to the medical device companies to change their security apparatus because many of these devices virtually have
6:43 am
hardwired passwords that can be easily hacked. the real component here is the hospital, the medical provider who buys the equipment. they're telling these companies either get us up to speed securitywise or we're not going to buy your product. >> yeah, that's scary when you think about that. brad, thank you very much. imagine leaving the office and not having to -- this would be wonderful -- not stress about work e-mails. that dream is now a reality for millions in france. the country's new right to disconnect law taking effect over the weekend, allowing workers to legally ignore e-mails after hours. tory, this is the law. >> that is the law. that is only a dream here. but you know what, it's very real, it's very significant because the reality is it's designed to combat the extraordinary issue of e-mail anxiety, workplace stress caused by it. we walk out of the office but we never really leave work because we are always attached to our devices. >> but there's a flip side to that as well. you don't have to be in the office as much.
6:44 am
because you answer -- >> that's certainly a good point. i don't think here we're ever going to see any kind of federal legislation that allow us to disconnect. but just as we've spent a lot of segments in this very studio talking over the last year about all kinds of parental leave policies, i think this might be a new area of overall employee wellness where some company says we're going to create a digital timeout, a period of e-mail blockout. i think we could see that from a company's perspective. >> before that happens, what are other things we can do? >> so, first, self-regulate. that's the easiest thing that all of us can do. no tech at the table during dinner. so easy. extend that for an additional maybe 30 minutes, 40 minutes. don't try to go cold turkey and disappearing answering your e-mail if you're somebody who's always responsive. communicate, maybe you say to people, i'm not going to be available tonight on e-mail. if you need me, call me. e-mail is quick to fire off but if you have to actually call somebody, you think that conversation can wait until the morning. and i think for bosses, set boundaries. if you are a boss, maybe send fewer e-mails.
6:45 am
maybe be the one to take the lead or to say, you know what, i'm going to label, this is not urgent. this can wait. this is for tomorrow. i think the onus is on bosses to not expect immediate responses and i think that could lower some of the anxiety. but the mantra for 2017 i think is work hard, rest hard. those two things i think we need both. i read that in "the new york times". i love that. that's my mantra. to be our best, do both. >> you know what, i understand what you're saying about the work e-mails but it's also social media. we were on vacation in puerto rico, and at dinner this entire family, they were on their devices. i'm like, look at the ocean. i could not -- i couldn't get over it. i couldn't get over that. >> that's right, leave the device. if you don't bring it to the table, it helps to have more conversation, better communication and you enjoy your meal and your family time, or the ocean. >> we are going to keep enforcing that rule in our house. >> good luck. >> exactly. >> thanks, tory. andn coming up next, we're

she has lost 42 pounds using weight watchers. and now we have new details on the success of her weight loss, and here with that is mara schiavocampo. >> amazing. such an inspiration to us all, especially in the new year. oprah is saying that for the first time she's not on a diet. in fact, nothing is off limits. she allows herself everything from pasta to tequila and says it works because she's changed her entire approach, not just to food but to life. >> i'm oprah winfrey. >> reporter: she's long been known for her struggle with wall street. >> i can't lift it. it is amazing to me that i can't lift it but i used to carry it around every day. >> reporter: now oprah winfrey says she's learned the keys not just to losing pounds but to gaining a fuller life. >> i love bread. i love bread. i now just manage it, so i don't deny myself bread. i have bread every day. >> reporter: the media mogul sharing these lessons in weight watchers magazine and appearing
7:22 am
on the cover for the first time. >> she's very open and she's very open about her journey on weight watchers. >> since i started weight watchers i've lost over 40 pounds. >> reporter: winfrey who has logs 42 pounds since starting the program says that setting a clear intention has been the key to her success this time around. intention is the most powerful principle. it rules my world. i do nothing without first thinking about why i'm doing it. what is the real motivation. her intention, she says, is to live more fully. now the focus of the weight watchers campaign and this new commercial. >> bring on the food! we're having it all. >> when people struggle losing weight or trying to get healthier, if you have a clear intention, it actually really, really helps. >> reporter: the fullness of life, the fullness of being, the self-acceptance, i'd never done that before. i'd always beaten myself up because i was tied to a number. >> aren't we glad we did it? >> yes. >> we're doing it. >> reporter: but even oprah has
7:23 am
her setbacks, saying, at this point i'm wise enough to know that there's no such thing as failure. it's all here to teach me. i don't look at this as a diet. i see it as a plan for life. such amazing perspective. now, one setback that oprah mentioned in the article, she said she went the entire summer without losing any weight at all but she stuck through it. she also talks about the importance of putting yourself first. she says you have to make fitness and well-being a top priority. especially a woman like her so busy, she says it's her top priority. >> you've done the same thing with your book "thinspired." you talk about similar ways. >> a lot of they things she's talked about are lessons i had to learn too. you have to know why you're doing it. it has to be bigger than fitting into a pair of jeans. >> dr. jen ashton, you want to talk to us about intentions. >> it's the mind-body connection. if you think about the definition of the world intention it's to have a plan or a goal or, in oprah's case, a reason. if you put that with the five stages of change that we use in
7:24 am
psychology and medicine, look at these stages. pre-contemplation, that's not even on your radar. contemplation is when you start to thinking about making the change. then preparation, action and maintenance. you can see why having an intention would be part of all five of these stages of change and very important. when you're talking about making a big life change. >> this is your area of expertise. you're board certified in many of these areas. a lot of people want to know, keeping it off. it's one thing to lose it but to keep that weight off. >> there's good news and bad news here. the good news is that significant weight loss is possible for a person but there's no one right or wrong way to do it, so everyone has to find their own way. the bad news is and extensive data supports this, as soon as we start to lose weight, the brain releases signals to the rest of our body that fights to get us back up, in many cases, to our heaviest. it doesn't mean it's impossible but it's difficult.
7:25 am
in obesity medicine now the gold standard is a three-tiered approach. it's to commit as mara said to food and fitness. that is for everyone struggling with any weight loss issue. medication, fda approved weight loss medications will be appropriate when used properly for many, and then bariatric surgery reserved for a few. this is the gold standard, but it's a long-term process here and really the key is recognizing it's not about a lack of willpower or commitment. >> is it psychological? >> no, it's really not. yes, you have to put the mind-body connection into it but so many people feel like failures because when they regain that weight people say you must not have willpower are be dedicated or committed. we know that's not true. >> your metabolism has changed. >> exactly. >> how have you done it? >> a lot of what you're saying is spot on and self-love is important. you have to accept yourself to make changes. >> 100%. >> thank you all very much. speaking of love, we have nick, "the bachelor," coming up.

right now, the man with the roses. please let us welcome right now the new bachelor, nick viall, come on out! [ applause ] why thank you. >> thank you. >> good to see you. >> you too. >> all right, nick. everyone is talking resolutions on this new year. happy new year. >> happy new year to you. >> did you make any resolutions this year? >> not anything specifically. i try to stay away from sugar. i have a sweet tooth. i'm at the point in my life where if i eat too much sugar the next day i feel terrible. >> i like how you couch that, i wish i could. >> >> i'll try but it won't happen. >> made it a few hours. >> until something is in front of me, then it's over. >> my resolution is to watch more "bachelor." i watched "bachelor in paradise."
7:34 am
i got fished in, hooked in. i loved it. tonight is the season premiere of "the bachelor." [ applause ] one of the ladies you'll meet tonight already had a close encounter in the past. take a look at the clip. >> intriguing. >> it's just a fun night. >> hi. >> hi. >> i am definitely nervous and i'm curious to see if he kind of figures out who i am and remembers what happened that night. >> oh, my gosh. your face is hilarious. so i'm guessing you didn't remember liz? >> oh, i definitely remembered, yeah. >> oh, that was what the face was. >> you saw my face. i was like, huh? at that point i had already met 14 other women. night one your head is kind of spinning. everyone is coming out. >> so many women. >> so little time. >> yeah. so she came out and i was like, huh. and then she took an interesting approach which you'll have to
7:35 am
watch tonight. but yes, she didn't say her name so the whole time i'm like, i'm pretty sure it's you but i don't -- like -- >> she left you hanging? >> she left me hanging. >> the hair was a little different. >> she had this whole plan of trying to figure out if i would remember. it's interesting. you have to check it out to see how interesting it was. >> there's definitely a lot of people you've met through "the bachelor" and "bachelorette" and "bachelor in paradise." a couple of people have messages for you. should we say hello to desiree? >> i just want to say -- to give you advice i would say stay true to who you are and trust your intuition. trust your instincts with everything that you've got because you can really kind of get distracted and your intuition and your heart and your mind are going to have to all come into play with choosing the right person. so i wish you all the best and i can't wait to watch. bye. [ applause ] >> it works is what that shows you. look at that.
7:36 am
>> yeah. i mean, you know, wonderful new baby. >> new baby, love. >> happy marriage. yeah. >> you've been on "the bachelorette" two times, "bachelor in paradise" is when i got to know you. you didn't find love those three times. how is it different when you're the one in charge? do you feel more confident going in like i'm going to fall in love because i'm in charge? >> not necessarily. i've had an interesting obviously past being "the bachelor," so i kind of came in thinking i don't even know if this is going to work this time. it's pretty nerve racking. it was nice being on the other side. >> i bet it was. >> i had no complaints but, like, it's hard. >> now you see how they -- >> yeah. i'm good friends with chris soules and ben higgins. they prepped me like it sounds great but it's really hard. you want to give everyone your attention and make sure they feel comfortable and welcome. they want to get to know you so you're just trying to remember
7:37 am
like what you should say or not say. it's hard and they weren't kidding. >> many of us appreciate you were so kind, you are so kind and it hasn't always been that way in the past, but to see you and how you've handled it thus far, you're very thoughtful. and as a viewer, we appreciate that very much. >> i have to say more realistic. i watch every season. i'm a 100% bach lore fan. i'm all team nick. i have been forever. i have to say though, there was a point where -- and we know why you're love/hate. but there's a person who has advice for you who you may not want to hear from. ali fedotowsky. >> i love ali. >> hi nick. okay, ali here. i'm here to give you some advice. first, if you're engaged congratulations. if you are engaged, don't listen to anybody's advice. just do your thing, you'll be great. but if you're not engaged, i'm here to tell you that you are officially banned from going on any more bachelor shows. finding love on tv might not be your thing. tinder maybe?
7:38 am
>> oh! >> what was the last thing? >> she said go to tinder. >> i've never done tinder. >> there's always next time. you're one of ten by the way -- 11. >> i have ten siblings. >> you know what it's like to deal with different personalities. >> it probably prepped me for bachelor world. there's a lot of personalities in my family. there's a lot of personalities in bachelor world. and so it probably prepared me more than anything else to kind of deal with chaos. >> we can't wait to watch the chaos. as you said it's interesting tonight. >> it is right off the bat. >> season 21. >> wow. nick, we're wishing you well. we hope you find love. >> thank you very much. [ applause ] >> season 21 of "the bachelor" premieres tonight at 8:00, 7:00 central right here on abc. and nick here on a special edition of "jimmy kimmel live: here for the right reasons," at 10:00, 9:00 central. coming up, the new tool athletes are using to heal. we'll tell you how it can help you.
7:39 am
with sleep number, there's an adjustment for that. tilt your tormentor and put those snores to sleep. does your bed do that? come into a sleep number store and save $600 on our best selling mattress. it's a no brainer. afoot and light-hearted i take to the open road. healthy, free, the world before me, the long brown path before me leading wherever i choose. the east and the west are mine. the north and the south are mine. all seems beautiful to me.
7:40 am
7:41 am
and back now on "gma" we are celebrating our tenth annual warm coats, warm hearts coat drive partnering with burlington and kids fashion delivers. i love that we're doing this. you can be a help. singing sensations emeli sande and members of the fray are dropped in to donate.
7:42 am
you can do it too. you just have to bring your gently used coats to your local burlington store. isn't that cool? let's go ahead and get a check of our drum roll, 109,000, you guys, more than 109,000 coats already donated. we still have time. go to "gma's" website to learn more about how you can donate. so many folks need that this cold winter. let's get a chec now to our project wellness series. we're looking at a new way to help you heal called pneumatic compression. it's a process pro athletes and fitness fans are embracing.
7:43 am
abc's kayna whitworth gave it a try. take a look. >> it's time to improve the circulation in my walking sticks. >> reporter: sure it makes for a good sitcom comedy. >> leg bags inflating. >> reporter: those leg bags are called normatec and they're no joke in the world of sports. it's been a game changer for athletes. marcus nunez, head training coach for the lakers regularly uses it on all players. >> i would not have nye training without normatec. it gets the lactic acid out of the legs. >> reporter: when it comes to injuries, some feel the normatec makes the difference between playing the next game or sitting out. >> just recently we had a player with an ankle sprain. first thing that we did is we put him on normatec and actually saw a difference the next morning. >> reporter: athletes like simone biles, lebron james and carmelo anthony swear by it. it's not only for the elite. at the unbreakable gym in west hollywood, there's a lounge area equipped with devices for all members to use.
7:44 am
>> i don't want you leaving our gym feeling in more pain. i want you walking out here, oh, my gosh, i feel great. >> you're telling me if i use the normatec sleeve after i did my leg day, i wouldn't have to walk around like this? >> you would feel not just an immediate impact, you'll feel an impact later that night. >> step your foot into it. >> okay. >> reporter: naturally i gave it a try. >> it's going to work its way up. >> okay, yeah. you feel the pressure at your feet and now you can feel more pressure kind of moving up. >> yep. >> reporter: the company says the pulse recovery system is designed to help with circulation, reduce inflammation, and increase blood flow to your muscles. the sleeves fill up with air, causing compression, and then intermittently pulses and releases. the pulsing is unique to normatec, but there are plenty of other pneumatic leg compresses around. >> when i didn't have these it took about an hour to warm up. now it takes 15, 20 minutes. changed my life. >> you're in the best shape of your life? >> i think so, yeah.
7:45 am
i'm kind of old but these help, these help for old people. >> reporter: for "good morning america," kayna whitworth, abc news, los angeles. >> good to know they help for old people because i'm trying out one right now. jen is back here with us. this is the normatec sleeve. tell us a little about what medically is going on here. >> there are a lot of different companies, not just normatec. basically the theory is it's providing graded compression. if you look at this incredible model we made to simulate what really is going on below the skin, yellow is skin and fat. pink is muscles. then you have lymph, nerve, artery, vain. this is squeezing. think about it around the body part. the theory is that it's not just bringing away some possible cell metabolites that might make your
7:46 am
legs feel heavy but also increasing blood flow and bringing more beneficial mediators to the site. we need more data on that. >> i did something similar when i had my shoulder surgery a year ago, the same kind of thing. what's the history behind this? >> like so many things in the wellness space, this started really hard core medically. in the hospital setting we use things called sequential compression devices on the arms and legs in the operating room. anyone who has had surgery may remember those squeezing their legs to prevent blood clots. they're used in patients with venous ulcers or bad peripheral circulation. now it's going mainstream for the pro athlete or just weekend warrior. >> why do you look at me like that? >> pro athlete. >> i'm the or. she couldn't even fill in the blank like or -- or you, robin. but are there any cons to this? >> of course, like anything you want to go for moderation. if you overuse it or apply it with too much pressure or too
7:47 am
tightly, there's the potential that it can cause some injury. it can be expensive. if you want to buy one of these bad boys for your house, you're talking about $500. again, there are some other companies there. you really don't want to overuse it. physical therapists and rehabilitation specialists and athletic trainers are using these all the time. i would say they're in every pro locker room and elite team locker room now. >> i didn't realize they were that popular. >> oh, yeah. >> it's almost like a massage a little bit. >> let me do the other arm. >> thank you very much. >> which one's better? look at these guns. >> don't even try. thank you, jen. coming up, we have -- it's starting up again. berkeley duffield and
7:48 am
7:49 am
we are back with stars burkely duffield and katherine mcnamara. katherine is in "shadow hunters" and burkely is in the sci-fi
7:50 am
thriller "beyond" that is premiering tonight. take a look. >> you spent 12 years in that place. it's a beautiful world filled with more wonder and magic than you'll see in a lifetime. it's also extremely dangerous. >> how would you know that? [ applause ] >> i was just telling you, burkely, my daughters are very excited about the season premiere tonight. you play holden matthews, a different take on a traditional superhero. tell us what the show is essentially about. >> as you said it revolves around my character, holden. he wakes up from a coma after 12 years and he really has to come to grips with this whole new world. he has a whole new set of friends he has to make. he doesn't recognize the world that he had known before he went into his coma. he has to discover that. he also has abilities he's coming to know. >> it's so funny, i had the full synopsis from my 10-year-old who told me all about it last night. for the first time ever free
7:51 am
form is going onto the binge watching band wagon and you can see the entire first season. what do you think about that? >> we're very excited and i'm personally excited. i love being able to watch shows and immerse myself in a world of characters. to be able to give the fans -- if you love the show and love the season premiere tonight, you can go on and watch as many episodes as you want. >> so i won't see my kids or get my tv back for at least a few days. katherine, your show, "shadow hunters" is returning tonight with season two. we have a preview. take a look. >> it's lie my life. i have a right to know. >> i was scared because you married a psychopath. my father. >> so you know. >> mom, how could you? >> oh claire, your father wasn't always like this. >> i deserve to know who i am. >> i know. i promise from now on, no more lies. [ applause ] >> jumping right into the family. >> "shadow hunters" was just nominated for a people's choice
7:52 am
award so congratulations on that. >> thank you. >> what do you think makes this show so popular? >> i think, honestly, everyone loves the supernatural and everyone loves to escape into that world. but something we dive into this season is the humanity of the characters. it's about these characters that are growing up and falling in love for the first time and dealing with all of these relatable issues in this setting. >> a supernatural setting. there's supposed to be some changes in this new season. can you give us an idea of what we can expect? >> we've reworked the show in a sense in every aspect, from the look to the weapons to the brutality of the show. it has a bit more grit and it's grounded in reality. we're bringing the humanity and reality into the supernatural. everything is more -- the danger is more prevalent, the brutality is there and you get to see what makes these characters tick. >> very cool. i'm intrigued. katherine and berkeley, thank you for joining us. you can see both "shadow hunters" and beyond on free form tonight. you can start watching
7:53 am
