7:15 am
chance she can testify. it's a difficult decision for a prosecutor, whether you want the complaining witness on the stand at this early part of the case. >> this is like a preseason or dry run. you do not convict a defendant, bill cosby, today. you need to prove to a judge you get to go to trial. if you bring on the accuser, the key witness in this case, you're previewing that for the later trial for the defense. >> even if the prosecution finds there isn't sufficient -- the judge says, there is insufficient evidence, the prosecutor can still go refile these charges to a trial court. >> exactly right, matt, though i think we can all understand in a case like this, it would be a big blow if they don't clear the bar today. what they want to do is show they have more than enough evidence to get this to trial. that would be bill cosby then facing an accuser in a criminal context for the first time with his liberty at stake. >> ari, thank you very much. president obama ramped up his criticism of vietnam's record on human rights.

you let her cry it out or pick her up? when it comes to getting their little bundles to bed, many americans struggle with the age old question, to cry or not to cry? researchers in australia studied infants ages 6 months through 16 months. the babies whose parents allowed them to cry it out fell asleep on average 13 minutes sooner and woke up a lot less often during the night than parents who didn't let babies cry it out. and stress tests showed letting them cry had no long-term effects. >> what we know is when babies are given opportunities to self-soothe, they learn how to stay asleep, not be awake as much, so the great news is babies aren't stressed, moms are less stressed, and babies sleep a little bit better. >> the american academy of pediatrics also supports crying it out. they say letting a baby cry for five to ten minutes at progressively longer intervals often can help a baby learn to fall asleep on her own within a
8:11 am
few nights. >> baby. >> it worked for new mom genevieve alan. >> she was waking up every two hours. >> she and her husband john say it wasn't easy, with their little bundle of crying joy, beatrice. >> we finally did cry it out at 8 months and it took us over the finish line, really solved our problem and beatrice sleeps now, which is amazing. >> if you can't stomach the crying, researchers found that parents who delayed bed time each night were about as effective. babies fell asleep almost as fast, but the trade-off, they would wake up more often than if you let them cry it out. whichever sleep strategy you use, pediatricians acknowledge letting babies cry is tough. we're hardwired to pick up a crying baby. >> some are never going to feel that's the right thing and that's okay too. either way we do this, we can create great bonds with our babies, and we can create great sleepers. but we do know that letting babies learn,0 how to self-soot,
8:12 am
they will have less awakening during their life. >> the most important thing is to be consistent, routine is more important than the method. if you're concerned about your baby's sleep challenges, talk with your doctor. we asked parents to weigh in on our website. 61% said the cry it out method worked for them. 24% tried it and couldn't go through with it. and 15%, i think i'm in that cat goir gwire, they tried it, said it didn't work. >> what are you doing? >> some version of -- >> the spoil method. >> capitulate. we have let her cry it out and it does work, she's a great sleep, she sleeps through the night. but sometimes she cries and we go in there and get her. it is hard. >> good luck. >> well, good. >> now to a story trending today, we all heard this expression, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. but, the most viewed story on
8:13 am
the new york times, the headline, sorry, there is nothing magical about breakfast. the author is a pediatrics professor and he says that many studies found the importance of breakfast are something of a mess. arguing there are major flaws in the research that suggest skipping breakfast would make you obese. and many of the studies are funded by, wait for it, breakfast food companies. his conclusion is breakfast has no health powers. >> i always feel better if i have a good breakfast. >> especially on the weekend. >> some people don't need it, i think this researcher said basically if you don't like it, fine. >> breakfast shaming. >> true. if i told you once, i told you a dozen times. what do you not do on the golf course? >> stand on the golf course. >> you do not do it.

8:18 am
across the bay area and temperatures now into the low to mid-50s. we will get peeks of sunshine with highs today reaching 66 degrees in san francisco, east bay 68 degrees and low seventh for the peninsula and south bay. and we'll also gave some spotty showers possible in the north bay. and later on this afternoon, we could see a couple of thunderstorms popping up especially far off towards the north. san francisco today mostly sunny skies. >> and that's your latest weather. the new middle age is brought to you by aarp. real possibilities. and now to our special series, we're calling "the new middle age." >> as we get older, it's easy to let things get in the way of friendships. joan lunden's here to show us why that doesn't have to be the case. good morning. good to see you. >> good morning. good to see you. so the question is how important is it to have close friends as we deal with the anxiety that
8:19 am
often comes with aging? i brought one of my closest friends along on an experiment that definitely put our friendship to the test. >> reporter: walking into a lab at the university of virginia, my friend louise and i are a little nervous. today we are research subjects for neuroscientist james cohn. tell us what we're in for. >> what we're going to do is we're going to put louise into the scanner to monitor the movement of blood through her brain. we're really interested in how people sort of regulate their anxiety. how do people deal with their anxiety. and to do that, of course, we have to create anxiety. >> reporter: cohn and his team strap electrodes onto louise's ankle. >> you're going to see two symbols. one is a blue circle, and one is a red "x." and when you see the red "x," there's a 20% chance you'll receive an electric shock on your ankle. >> it might not come. >> it might not come. so she'll never know. what we're creating is this uncertainty. we do that because we're really
8:20 am
trying to create the kind of anxiety that we experience in actual life. we're never really sure whether something's going to happen or not. >> reporter: louise's anxiety will be measured as she faces the threat of the shock alone, holding my hand and holding the hand of a stranger. >> i think of joan always when anything comes up. >> reporter: we've been friends since my daughter lindsay met louise's son, evan, almost 15 years ago, and now we share a granddaughter. that was lindsay's hair. it's a close bond, one that researchers say could add years to our lives. >> midlife friendships are really the key to thriving. it's this secret that no one talks about. >> reporter: for her new book, the science, art and opportunity of midlife, barbara bradley haggerty interviewed hundreds of experts. >> those people with a large network of friends actually live longer. they're less likely to have a stroke or heart attack. they're more likely to keep their memory intact. >> reporter: studies show that lack of social connections can
8:21 am
cause as much harm as smoking 15 cigarettes a day. the health risks even outweigh obesity. and middle-aged americans are only becoming more isolated. in 2013, 45 to 64-year-olds were 29% more likely to live alone than they were only ten years earlier. >> with each year, social isolation takes on increased urgency, has a -- really is a public health issue. >> so what actually happens in the experiment when you have somebody that's meaningful to the person hold their hand? >> yeah. what actually happens is that you see regions of the brain that are associated with everything from how we regulate our own emotions to how we sense the state of our body. it's quiet down as a result of the touch. >> you did great. >> did you notice a difference being alone versus being with somebody? >> oh, yeah. well, as soon as joan walked in and she grabbed my hand and i
8:22 am
felt like that emotional attachment that she -- like she had my back. >> did you feel i was, like, i got you, babe? i got you? i got you? and you felt that? >> oh, totally. when the stranger, whoever that was, the unknown person was in, i honestly felt like i could have been holding on to anything. it wasn't that same human touch as when joan was in there. >> reporter: as for louise's actual results, the areas in red represent regions in the brain where blood was flowing during the shock threat. we see lots of red when she was alone and slightly reduced with a stranger, but when i was holding her hand, gone. >> we're seeing how you, joan, take on part of the regulatory job of her emotional state. >> yeah. >> but there's so much more going on than that. when you have these relationships, you literally think differently. you perceive the world differently when you're embedded within that supportive social
8:23 am
network. >> reporter: proof that sharing your burden with friends really does lighten your load. i'm glad it's over. >> next time let's do something a little more fun. >> yes. >> that electric shock wasn't fun. >> we should also note that quality relationships are just as important for men as they are for women. it's kind of like an investment that we should all make in our happiness and our health. isn't that amazing? >> do you want to hold my hand? just watching that. very cool stuff. >> yeah. and we don't think about that as being so important to our health. but when all that blood's going up to your brain, it's not growing hair. >> why would you do that? look at me. >> joan, sorry, give it to me right there, okay? >> you could have looked over there, too. wow. >> this went south very quickly, joan. thank you. appreciate it. and tomorrow, we're tackling the topic of ageism.

what's your advice to folks if they like something they see but aren't sure? >> it's a misconception, that trends have an age limit. you can wear any trend, 20, 40, 60 years old, as long as you wear it in the right way. >> our first trend, and i did a double take, mom jeans. >> it's back. the reason why? it's super flattering and works for any age. rocking it with this huge, lady-like top. it's a more modern, elegant way to do it. the key here is have mom jeans rest on the natural waist. >> has to be the high waist. >> yes. >> and emily is rocking nit a downtown, hipster way with a necktie. tying the shirt so you show the waist. the way of wearing the jeans is a little shorter. >> i remember it with a boot cut thing. >> we're staying away from that.

it can be extreme. we've taken the pajama top. this is a topshop version of it. styled in two ways. one, equally elegant skirt. the tank top underneath because it is silk and you want to smooth out lumps and bumps. she's wearing it as more of a blazer look, in a nautical way. then we've taken it to matchy, but it doesn't look like she's rolled out of bed. it's tailored and structured. both have the box bag, which is a big trend this season. >> one more trend. track pants. trackies as we call them. >> elevated. not for the gym. for that reason, we've styled gina in a way that's anything than for the gym. crisp shirt, great heels along with these awesome pants. it's a classical look with a twist. >> then a more athletic look on the other model. >> still street wear. she has two of the key looks. the jacket, ultimate layering
8:44 am
piece, and the shoe that doesn't mean running shoe but it's fashion and selling out. >> if you want to elevate the look, don't wear the sneakers you run in. wear your fancy sneakers. >> exactly. >> ladies, thank you so much. if you want more, including all the complete looks, head to today.com/style. good job. thank you. up next, natalie hangs ten with legendary surfer kelly slater and checks out his new machine that makes perfect waves. first, this is "today" on nbc.

undisclosed sum. >> you'll see this in a number of places. it's a game changer for all of us. >> reporter: the ability to create a stadium for surfing and schedule a contest without being at the mercy of the ocean may also play a role in whether surfing will be picked as an olympic sport. >> there is a conversation about man made wave, supplementing what they need for the olympics. whether this is it or not? i don't know. it'd be great if it was. >> reporter: in the meantime, kelly says he loves sharing the thrill from his friends. from champion pros like stephanie gilmore to novices like me. luckily, they can dial down the waves to make it beginner friendly. >> yes! all the way, baby! whoo. >> with surfing, you're traveling around the world looking for a perfect wave. looking for a fun time, good experience with your friends,
8:50 am
that kind of thing, meeting people. you know, here, that sort of happens. it's a total playground for people who love surfing. >> kelly told me this wave took more than ten years to design and build with a team of scientists who are experts in fluid dynamics. he say s it is a prototype now. they haven't talked about when or where the next ones will be built. matt, i'm sure you want one in your backyard. >> it's the cooler thing. it's perfect. >> amazing. >> i can see the x games can something like that. >> yeah. >> amazing. >> they got your bay watch shot right there. you look so good. i'm so proud. >> that's impressive. >> with a little help by kelly. thanks to his team. they were amazing. it was a fun day. >> well done. good for you. natalie, thank you. up next, we're going to the dogs with some gadgets to keep your pets safe this summer. first, this is "today" on nbc.
