schools, excuse me, schools across the country to connect kids to new technology, and we'll talk about that as well. >> that's critical. first we want to get to all that tropical storm julia news forming over florida hours ago. winds reaching 40 miles an hour sparking a tornado, rob marciano in for ginger and you're going to tell us about the storm's impact. >> we were watching this. a really weak, unorganized system for several days but got organized quickly yesterday and did damage across brevard and volusia counties, and ripping the roof off this house, and as robin mentioned, one tornado touching down bringing down trees, as well. we're going to have some sustained with this, especially along the coastline. the center is over brunswick, georgia, just hugging the coastline so as it does that it's staying organized. we have tropical storm warnings and flash flood warnings extend into south carolina. we're going to have substantial heavy rain and the forecast for this keeps it inland but if it
may very well keep its strength for a couple more days and heavy rain will be the main impact with this. >> back over to you. the race for the white house. donald trump under fire facing a blistering attack from president obama and investigation into his charity while he prepares for his first debate with hillary clinton and unveils a new child care plan overnight. abc's tom llamas is here with the latest. good morning, tom. >> trump already firing back on twitter asking why the president is campaigning and not working? this as team trump prepares for another possible legal fight less than two months before the election. >> reporter: in a new plan trump who at one point held up a baby, says he is committed to helping working mothers get more child care benefits. >> that means we need working mothers to be fairly compensated for their work and have access to affordable, quality child care for their kids. that's what we're doing. >> reporter: also overnight, donald trump says he's going to be on his best behavior at the debate unless hillary clinton
respect unless she treats me, you know, in a certain manner in which case that will be the end of that. but i am certainly starting off with the -- with the, you know, the feeling that i'm going to treat her with great respect. >> reporter: trump's debate prep coming as he could be facing new legal trouble. new york attorney general eric sneiderman now investigating the candidate's charitable group, the trump foundation, the inquiry comes after a series of reports by "the washington post" questioning trump's donations. "the post" citing tax records showing trump had not donated to his own charity since 2008 and that the trump foundation used $20,000 in funds to buy a six-foot-tall painting of trump. the trump campaign releasing a statement calling sneiderman a partisan hack who has turned a blind eye to the clinton foundation for years and has endorsed hillary clinton for president. this is nothing more than another left wing hit job. the new legal woes come as president obama pinch hits for
>> no matter how many times people knock her down, and mess with her, she does not quit. >> reporter: this as buzzfeed is out with a story showing hacked e-mails from colin powell reveal the former secretary of state calling trump a, quote, national disgrace who has no sense of shame. a spokesperson for powell telling abc news the e-mails were properly quoted. powell did not know he had been hacked. in those e-mails the four-star general also bashing clinton for trying to lump him into her e-mail controversy. powell says he told clinton he used his personal computer for unclassified e-mails. powell calls hillary's staffers minions and says the media isn't fooled and she is going to get crucified. george? >> thanks very much. let's bring in jon karl for more on this. i think we can safely say colin powell won't be endorsing anybody soon. >> the least surprising news
about the trump foundation. that investigation in "the washington post." possible investigation in new york. questions being raised in florida as well. >> yeah. absolutely. look, the attorney general of new york, that really looks a lot like a partisan hit job, this is obviously somebody who has gone after him in the past. obviously elected democrat but there are big questions about the trump foundation. we know a fraction about the trump foundation than we know about the clinton foundation and it's also a fraction of the size. it's much smaller, but there are a lot of unanswered questions. >> the clinton foundation faced these questions and shut down if hillary clinton gets elected president becaus conflicts and "newsweek" out with a major cover story about trump's businesses in the company of trump, and it basically lays out the case, an investigation of his businesses around the world and says that they are so extensive, so vast, so tied in many cases to foreign governments he would have to find a way to shut them down or face impossible conflicts as president. >> this is a vast enterprise, again, that we know very little about. there are some public disclosures, why "newsweek" was able to do the story, what trump said he would turn the
children. the problem here, george, is that his children are also his most important political advisers, so it's really hard to see how he can untangle this and i expect the clinton campaign will make an issue of this virtually every day from now until november. >> ivanka will join us live. i want to ask about president obama. we saw him campaigning hard in philadelphia. >> sure did. >> what's his role now with the campaign? >> boy, he really seemed to have the mojo back there, didn't he? this was the obama of 2008, loving every minute of it. out there not just making the case for hillary clinton, but playing the attack dog going right at donald trump, you're going to see him out there a lot in the final months. >> like he's the vice presidential candidate. >> he is. he is the attacker, and he is loving it. >> okay, thank you very much. of course, as you said ivanka trump here in our next half hour. but now to that cyberhack targeting some of america's top athletes. u.s. officials defending them after files revealed simone
others got medical exemptions to take banned substances. brian ross is here with those details. good morning, brian. >> reporter: good morning, robin. u.s. officials are expressing outrage this morning over what they call a smear, the hack that put the private medical records and conditions of four top u.s. olympic athletes online for the world to see. >> reporter: at the age of 19, simone biles was the pride of america. >> simone biles. >> reporter: winning four olympic gold medals making her the most decorated u.s. gymnast in u.s. history. but now the hack of biles' records from the world anti-doping agency has forced her to go public with her attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. having adhd and taking medicine for it is nothing to be ashamed of, she wrote on twitter. nothing that i'm afraid to let people know. biles was one of four u.s. athletes whose medical records were hacked and posted online. along with venus and serena williams and a member of the gold medal winning women's
donne. the documents, apparently from the world anti-doping agency showed the players had usedd medications on the prohibited drug list, but that in each case, they had received approval for therapeutic use and had not sought to keep it secret from the testing agency. >> these documents prove these u.s. athletes played by the book and did everything that they we the complete opposite of what the russians did. >> reporter: in the case of the russians, more than 100 of its athletes were banned from this summer's olympics because of what was called state-spsored drug cheating. experts are now pointing at russia and its skilled cyberthieves for this latest hack. all coming after the cyberattack into the computers of the democratic national committee. >> they're sending a message. if you strew around with russia, if you make russia unhappy,
something embarrassing and show the whole world. >> so brian, are all these hacks connected? >> computer forensic experts say, yes they are and see certain telling details in each of the codes they use that all link back to moscow. >> they don't mind that you know it's them. >> apparently not. that's the message they're trying to send as dick clarke said. >> and more coming, too. >> more coming. there were several thousand overnight on the dnc put online not as explosive as the previous ones during the convention but a lot more coming. >> it seems like all the u.s. athletes are taking it in stride, and basketball star, elena delle donne was recovering from thumb surgery when she wrote on instagram, with this picture with her thumb's up. i'd hike to thank the hackers for making the world aware that i legally take a prescription for a condition i've been diagnosed with, thanks, guys. >> because once again they did nothing wrong. these athletes did nothing wrong and they played by the rules. >> played by the rules and nothing to be ashamed of. did it the right way, and elena, happy recovery. hopefully a speedy recovery for you. let's switch gears and look at this video. a scary attack on officers in
abc's clayton sandell, he has the details. >> reporter: this morning three phoenix cops are recovering from this, what their chief calls an unprovoked attack. >> our phoenix police officers were targeted. >> reporter: it began just before 2:00 a.m. tuesday. a sergeant and two officers meeting outside this convenience store. but nearby a man in this red car appears to watch them for a few minutes then this. you can see the sergeant going down with a broken leg. another officer dives out of the way. eight feet into the air. those are his legs, that officer, a 33-year-old rookie, his first day on the job. >> this is a violent, cowardly act on our police officers and it's simply unacceptable. >> reporter: but it's not over. the officers that were just hit must now fight the suspect, 44-year-old, mark laquan payne, you can see them finally using a taser to help make the arrest. the police chief isn't speculating on payne's motive but he's angry about what he
planning three funerals right now. >> reporter: the two seriously injured officers, expected to be okay. for "good morning america," clayton sandell, abc news, denver. >> boy, just horrible right there. we move on now to that university of north carolina football player suspended from the team after a woman accuses him of sexual assault, and demands justice. abc's linzie janis has the stor carolina football player allen artis is suspended from the team indefinitely. a judge issuing a warrant for his arrest for misdemeanor sexual assault. his accuser, delaney robinson, coming forward tuesday saying she hoped for harsher charges but felt authorities and the university were dragging their feet. >> my life has changed forever while the person who assaulted me remains as a student, as a football player on this campus. >> reporter: according to robinson after a night of drinking six months ago at a campus apartment, she was sexually assaulted by artis who
after the alleged assault, she said she went straight to the hospital, and then to the police who says treated her like a suspect. >> did i lead him on? have i hooked up with him before? do i often have one-night stands? did i even say no? >> reporter: robinson and her lawyers say an interrogation tapes they've seen investigators joked with her alleged attacker telling him to keep playing football and not to worry. >> this man raped me and the police told him not to sweat it. how can this happen? >> reporter: also saying that despite physical evidence, the d.a. failed to charge artis, so they settled for a lesser misdemeanor charge, using an unusual north carolina law. robinson telling her story under oath to a magistrate who issued that arrest warrant. now if artis is convicted of that misdemeanor, he could face
but this morning the d.a. says the case is still open and more serious charges could still be brought. george, the university says privacy laws prohibit it from commenting on this case. >> we will keep an eye on it. thank you very much. amy here, and more trouble for samsung. the owner of a samsung galaxy note 7 says he was driving down a highway in florida charging his phone when it suddenly exploded. you see the aftermath right there. the fire spread through his entire car. this is just the latest in a string of fires. samsung blames a battery cell issue and is telling customers to power down the phone, and has not issued an official recall. former nsa contractor, edward snowden says he deserves a pardon on moral grounds from president obama and says he claimed the country for the better when he exposed the secret surveillance programs. he is currently living in russia.
destroyed a chemical weapons plant to make chlorine or gas. it is hitting in 50 locations. it takes a lot of training to run a marathon, but these runners got trained in a different way when they went barrelling through their track. someone did not get the message, and runners were delayed by nine minutes, and qualifier for the boston marathon, so a lot of people did things they shouldn't have done. they were climbing over the tracks and through the train. >> did they get the nine minutes back? >> they will look at it on a case by case basis. >> how unfortunate. >> great to have you back. our heart goes out to you in the loss of your grandmother. >> thank you very much. she was a wonderful, wonderful
>> wonderful to have you back. our interview with tim cook and we sat down to discuss a variety of topics including the new iphone and those notorious airpods, wireless headphones inspiring a joke or two online. so i had to try them out. iphone 7. okay, so what sets this one apart? >> this is the best iphone we've ever created. the photo quality is absolutely stunning and killer. now in addition to that, battery life is longer. the performance of the iphone is killer. we now have stereo speakers in here. there is something that's missing. the earphone jack because people have been critical of that. you said it was courageous. what did you mean by that? >> well, wireless is the future and so when you decide on what the future is, you want to get there as soon as you can. now, why is that important for the consumer? well, that plug, that jack takes up a lot of space in the phone and there's a lot of more important things we can provide
we can provide a larger battery. the stereo speakers i mentioned, those were also enabled because the jack is not there anymore. >> if you could go back to the airpods for a moment. that was a big deal. people are fearful it's going to fall out. i'm going to lose them. how am i going to find them? have you all discussed that? >> there is a little case that you put the airpods in, magnetically, they're sort of sucked down into the case. it's a great place to both charge them and keep them. i've been wearing them for a while, and because they don't have wires on them, the wires tend to help the ear bud to fall out, right? pause it applies weight on those. by snipping the wires, i have never personally had one fall out. >> let me see those. >> you got to see this. >> let me see these suckers. >> you got to see this. >> try it out. >> okay. >> i've been on treadmills. walking. you know, doing all the things

? sorry ? >> beyonce rocking the vmas. the "formation" tour, one of the hoth hottest shows, around, but it could be a tough ticket to get. reselling then at much higher prices. well, there's a battle brewing but will congress crack down on that? that's coming up on our big board. >> tickets through the roof. also right now, hillary clinton set to return to the campaign trail tomorrow after her battle with pneumonia. as ivanka trump joins her father overnight to talk child care. she's standing by to join us in a moment. this morning, uber is debuting self-driving cars in pittsburgh. a lot of people wondering about that. the cars are offering a hands-free ride but safety drivers will be behind the wheel. >> interesting. interesting. also this morning, the
lochte on "dancing with the stars," they're now revealing why they did it and we're going to tell you how the show is responding to that and what lochte is saying about that. all that coming up. >> we heard from tom bergeron yesterday. more later. a lot more to come. first amy is over with ivanka trump. >> good morning. ivanka joined her father to roll out a new child care proposal guaranteeing maternity leave for new mothers. the plan could help widen trump's voters, and here's what ivanka had to say about it. >> this is not a woman's issue. it's a family issue. it's an american issue. it's an issue that's often been discussed but has yet to be solved. my father plans to change that. >> ivanka trump joins us now after that announcement last night and, ivanka, at the center of this plan, six weeks guaranteed paid maternity leave for mothers across the u.s. workforce. did it take any convincing?
very excited and that's one component of a much larger plan dealing with one of the biggest issues in our country which is the inaffordable, inaccessible child care system that we currently have in place that's failing american families so now child care is actually the single greatest household expense in much of the country exceeding even the cost of housing so a lot of people don't realize this, but families, families with young children especially before they get into the school system really need relief. so we had a very comprehensive plan for how to make child care more affordable, more accessible, create more optionality by regulation reduction and creating a more dynamic child care market so we were very excited about it and obviously the maternity leave component is one component that i feel very strongly about and i think is long overdue in this country. >> the clinton campaign quick to pounce on it saying that it wasn't good enough.
maternity leave? why not also deal with paternity leave? why did you not include fathers in the plan? >> well, i think we took a giant leap forward with the plan and, you know, respectfully, the hillary clinton has been around for decades and there's no policy benefiting either mothers or fathers in terms of paid leave. so i think the fact that we are advocating for this and advocating for it so strongly and taking leadership on this is a testament in itself to our thoughts on this subject, but certainly she had opportunity to have a concept like that. >> for the record she's running though on her website she is guaranteeing up to 12 weeks of paid family and medical leave to care for a new child or a seriously ill family member. >> we have not been in public office for the last several decades and she has. so she could have instituted some of those policies in that role and has not done so. >> you're an executive vice president at the trump organization. you said last night that the trump organization headed by your father does offer paid maternity leave for its
is that for all of the thousands of employees of your father? >> it is and also adoption leave. so it's a great thing and at my own business since inception i've offered eight weeks paid leave, only 10% of american companies offer that benefit so it is quite unique and this policy is to encourage more companies and to encourage all americans to be able to get the benefit of it should they be new mothers because it's so critical and important. business. i also offer flexible hours. i don't police sick days or vacation days. i really believe that when you hire people who are self-starters, you don't need to police those sorts of things and i think it's very important to create work environments that are results oriented and we've spoken about this a little in the past. >> we have, indeed. >> and i think especially for women who are managing so many
of the home, the primary givers in a lot of the case, and the child care policy is so important because as primary care givers we're pulled in many directions and that's reflected in the fact that there's tremendous wage disparity, and greater when you become a mother and now motherhood is the greatest predictor of wage inequality. even over gender. >> new questions being raised about what would happen to the trump organization if your father indeed becomes presidt given the foreign investments and ties from the trump organization to foreign investments, what will you and your family do to prevent any potential conflicts of interest? >> there's something so much bigger than our business at stake and that's the future of this country. as a private business we can make decisions that are not in our best interest. we're not beholden to anyone to shareholders. we can say, you know what, we'll do less deals and not going to do that deal even though it's a
reasonable because it could create a conflict of interest and we'll act incredibly responsibly and my father already said he would put it into a blind trust and it would be run by us. so he's been very articulate on that fact and outspoken but this is so much bigger than another deal and we all recognize that. >> the candidates' health have become a big issue especially given the events on sunday with hillary clinton. he told our david muir he might release more of his medical information. your father. i understand that you and your father may be going on "dr. oz" later today to discuss your father's health. can you tell us what he's prepared to release later today? >> i cannot. i'll allow him to release it when he does but i will tell you that the strength, the stamina that is required of what he does every day is unbelievable. and i was out on the campaign trail with him for one day yesterday and i need this coffee in the morning, so he does this
he has been doing it for over a year. >> nothing surprising in what he'll be releasing? >> his health is unbelievable. so i should be so lucky to keep his schedule these days. >> all right. ivanka trump as always we appreciate your time this morning. thank you. >> thank you. thank you for having me. >> back to you guys. >> all right. now, thank you, amy. coming up on our big board, jonbenet ramsey's brother breaking his silence about being a suspect in a murder. plus, the fight to get tickets to your favorite concerts and shows, a battle is now brewing with those bots that are buying and marking up those ticket prices. we'll tell you what it can mean for your wallet and our insiders are going to join us to do all that in two minutes. be right back.

now with the big board team of insiders are here and weighing in on our top stories starting at the table with our friend, dan abrams. >> good to be here. >> good to see you. let's start with burke ramsey has been under this cloud for so long, telling him it was like to be considered a suspect in his
but, you know, he hadn't been under the cloud even though dna evidence cleared him. >> he wasn't a real suspect and i know a lot will be frustrated to hear this, particularly after watching episode two of dr. phil's interview. he was never a real suspect and he is not a real suspect now, and this interview is making him seem like a suspect. he was 9 years old at the time. remember that. there are questions being asked, well, when this happened why didn't you say this and why didn't you include jonbenet in a picture? you know what, because he was 9 years old at the time. 9-year-olds and that's another thing, by the way, if burke ramsey had committed this crime when he was interrogated at age 9, you don't think he would have cracked back at the time? >> a lot of people talking about his demeanor. that is their whole thing throughout. his demeanor, unemotional but he's addressing it in this interview. but do you think -- why do you think he decided to speak out now after all these years? >> i think it was a mistake in retrospect. in particular watching him. right?
on his face which is just going to lead people to ask more questions. i don't think it's a smile. i don't think he's happy. i think it's just an uncomfortable sort of facial thing and that is just the way he appears. i don't know burke ramsey but from watching the interview that's what it appeared to me but on the whole i don't think this was a smart thing to do. >> he was paid. >> he better have gotten paid a lot of money to do this otherwise there was no reason for him to do this because the whole way this is being framed on "dr. phil there's a new potential reason that burke ramsey did it, and he is going to respond to it today. >> revelation. >> the bottom line is he is not a suspect, and even the people who think still to this day that john and patsy ramsey ought to be suspects, the people in law enforcement don't think burke ramsey ought to be a suspect and i think that's really important to remember. >> all right, well, we'll keep an eye on that story and keep watching. to the big headline about oprah winfrey and weight watchers, the year after she
company and became a spokesperson is showing trouble, and a ceo resigning. the stocks have fallen, and fitness expert chris powell is here, and chris is joining us live, and, chris, the oprah effect is real. we've all seen it. you attach oprah to your business and usually takes off and always and continues to be successful. in this case weight watchers, it's falling. what do you think is the reason for that? >> yeah, for years the "o" factor a grand slam for any business and in all fairness, the valu actually up now at this point over where it was last year, you just saw that big $1.4 billion spike in a matter of a month and we've seen it fall $1.2 billion over the last nine months, and so the thing is it's almost like losing 10 pounds and gaining 9 of it back. you still lost a pound. it's just not as exciting, right? so but the biggest thing with oprah when she got on board we all including myself we all expected something exciting, new and innovative and weight
and you can't afford to do that in today's technologically, weight loss market space. >> that's the thing. is you have all this competition. you have all the fitness trackers and new natural foods so weight watchers isn't there alone. >> yeah, you're right. you just said the magic words. it's these fitness trackers and apps, they are -- it's technology. that is the future of fitness weight loss for the masses. they offer creative, fun, exciting ways to lose weight and they educate you and they bring in a whole that kind of convenience and affordability, it's not going anywhere, and it will only be growing. >> we found out she likes bread like a lot of us do. i love bread. >> she looks good, though. chris powell, thanks very much. moving on to that brewing battle against ticket callers. adele and beyonce have taken it on and "hamilton" taking on the fight calling on congress to regulate this. they are computerized bots. these bots buy the tickets and resell them. alex gale from "complex" magazine is here. how much of a problem is this?
who has tried to buy a ticket for "hamilton" will tell you. they generally go for $199 and be on stubhub for $2,000. there was a report by the new york attorney general that had one company making $16 million a year, an unlicensed ticket seller. ticketmaster had a lawsuit against another company that was buying 200,000 tickets a day and this is despite the fact they have security measures like captions where you have to type in weird letters on the ticketmaster site, and the limits are to where you can only buy four tickets a person but nonetheless these bots have -- and this software has allowed them to get around it and the law that the senate is considering and will probably pass, will make it a federal issue. right now, it's handled by state. and now you have a company in tennessee buying tickets in new york, and the enforcement is all over the map and all over the place. literally all over the map. >> well, alex, if congress passes this bill that addresses this, a bill, and president obama signs it, will it really fix the problem? >> you know, i think it's not
end. if you see things, just because it's illegal doesn't mean it doesn't happen. you see another music issue with internet piracy. it's been illegal for years, but it still happens because the technology allows people to do it. that is what is going to happen here. you have this technology in place, the security measures, but the bots always outsmart them so really kind of up to people like ticketmaster to catch up to that. there's another law that they could also ad which would be making people have to bring that's the other way to do it and we'll see what happens. >> have you guys ever stood in line for a concert in the rain or something like that? >> oh, every year the jingle ball with my kids is a very -- >> i used to be on the phone with ticketmaster trying to win tickets went on sale for the rolling stones or j. geils. >> did it work? >> j. geils. >> chris, how about you? >> i never got them. >> pearl jam, 1996 at the key arena, i stood in line for three hours and i got my tickets. >> well, for me it was peaches

then we realized it wasn't, it broke my heart. >> reporter: lochte hoping to earn back america's support. >> i changed and i want to become a better person. >> reporter: now lochte has apologized to the rio olympics for that gas station fiasco and also been slapped with what could be a career-ending suspension from usa swimming. now those two protesters face their own date with the law due back in court on october 4th. guys. >> a little bit more to be heard from that. >> not over. you had a lot of fun with those airpods when you were up in harlem with the ceo of apple, tim cook. also talking about the program connect-ed. >> do you have to slo-mo that? >> it's always funnier in slo-mo. >> what are you listening to? >> any time you say twerk you know we'll go back and show that. >> your showdown. your dance-off with shaq, when is that coming up? >> whenever the big man wants some of all of this. all right. we got more of that exclusive interview with ceo tim cook coming up.

is expected to return to the campaign trail tomorrow after her bout with pneumonia, and she has her work cut out for her. a new poll finds her trailing trump now in ohio. four companies including mattel and hasbro have been fined after being accused of collecting children's personal information and then tracking them online. the settlement totaling more than $800,000 was announced by new york state officials. it stops the companies from using the tracking technology. officials said many of the websites, home to popular toys and children's television shows, featured the technology that can track every move a child makes on those sites and then provide that information to advertisers. well, another car fire is being blamed on samsung's latest smartphone. a driver in florida, take a look at that, says his galaxy note 7 exploded while he was charging it. samsung is telling customers to turn off the phone and is offering exchanges as quickly as possible. critics say the delay is putting customers, however, at risk. well, finally bruce
show is going to be great when they go to it but being in the show, well, that was a dream come true for a 19-year-old college sophomore named matthew. he was invited up on stage in philadelphia after he showed bruce his sign asking to play along with the song "no surrender." matthew traveled with his dad from texas just to see the concert. what a memory that is. i love it. he said he only practiced the chords just a few days before. he didn't actually think he was going to though he looks completely comfortable there, his hand was shaking the entire time. he did a great job. >> he did a great job. >> and he's not in a band, but i think he can start one now. >> he looked comfortable. he looked very comfortable. >> thank you.

trying to help using that hashtag as their battle cry. the fans around the world have begun streaming his songs, like "hot in here" in an attempt to give him a big enough spotify payout to pay off his debts. according to the streaming service, artists get paid a half a cent for each hit so you're right, robin, the goal is 288 million and nelly fans riding with him. small cost for fans could be priceless for the music star. >> loyalty. >> i'm keeping on my clothes. >> darn it. >> all right, thank you, lara. and coming up, new questions about simone biles' battle with adhd after her medical records are leaked. we're talking to dr. ashton about that. and we have a "gma" exclusive for you. what cosmetics are really the best value at the drugstore? we're going to reveal them to you live. come on back.

? let the loving ? ooh, how great was that simone biles in rio? dominated the games. five medals, four golds. now this morning she's answering questions about her health after her medical records were leaked and they did show she had permission to show this medication she was using for adhd during the competition but some people are now asking if those drugs gave her an unfair leg up at the olympics. >> and there it is. >> reporter: this morning america's golden girl targeted. >> she's just got so much power. >> reporter: simone biles, one of the victims of the latest cyberattack. hackers circulating confidential
athletes. the leaked documents reveal 19-year-old biles tested positive for a typical stimulant for treating saddam hussein and the international gymnastics federation approved her use of the medication. she later tweeted, i have adhd and have taken medicine for it since i was a kid. please know i believe in clean spot and have always followed the rules. adhd or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is a condition usually diagnosed during childhood but it often lasts well into ad common symptoms include, trouble concentrating, being overly active and one other decorated olympian has grappled with it michael phelps diagnosed at age 9. here's her tweet, "having adhd and taking medicine for it is nothing to be ashamed of." let's talk about this now with dr. jen ashton coming in again today. of course, it is nothing at all to be ashamed. >> correct. >> we hear all the time about some kids especially going
don't -- haven't been diagnosed with adhd they're taking the medicine. does it help them? >> you're talking about a class of medication known as stimulants. amphetamine is one of them. they have been out for over 50 years and profiled in terms of safety, efficacy and side effects and risks is very well known. yes, it's a very common drug of abuse, especially in college kids and it really -- the data shows it probably works differently. you know, when you give it to someone with adhd, it really helps that focus and concentration via transmitters in the brain. if you give it to someone who doesn't have adhd, there's probably a big placebo effect. we talk about that all the time and the data, most of it, shows it really doesn't help you. >> what kind of a difference could it make to a gymnast? >> take a look at this. these are the common side effects that you can see with this medication. the things like increased heartrate, shortness of breath, no appetite or weight loss. no athlete would want any of these things. so, again, i think it's really important to understand here that while it's a banned substance, if you have a
documentation, there's nothing illegal medically. >> and she had all the documentation but now that it has been revealed and now that she's speaking out about it, it could help people. >> i think it has to help people. this is something that affects about 5%, some people say 10% of the population. there is no shame in the adhd game. it's 2016. if you had high blood pressure you would treat it and i think the more we talk about this as stigma it has to have because a lot of people suffering with this feel embarrassment and they do feel shame and that has to stop. >> i'm sure this is going to generate a lot of questions. you'll be on twitter all morning. coming up revealing the best new beauty products and our makeup artists are touching up our audience members now. there you see it. and that reveal is next.

it's not going to happen. >> there's a lot of trust. he got a loyal following who says it's like better than tinder or better than match. they are loving it where he is. by the way if you want to follow him it's @stroymmoyd. it's like the classic dating game and there is a twist at the end. you can decide on one of the passengers as your -- what did he say, future come on. be positive. or you can take $200, so, you know, he's a stand-up comedian. he wants to have a show someday. so he's multitasking. >> i'm like -- i can't imagine anybody would do it but obviously people have. have any of them taken -- >> i think there's been many positive dates. would you allow him to set you up? would you put on the blindfold in the uber, yes or no? yes?

what time is that thing i have to do? cancel it. are you still here? >> you know what it is, i'm going to so you. it's the old-fashioned walk and talk. now we got fonzie. let's walk and talk. we're going to be very creative. lauren, come on, lauren. come on, my lady. walk and talk and this is what it is. if you can walk 15 minutes a day, it could add up to three years to your life expectancy. i want to see you around a long time, you too, lauren. it has shown if you do a walk and talk, lauren, you over here of you're not going back to that seat. you're coming with me. it shows people are 60% more creative when they do the walk and talk and our producer michael corn at "gma," michael does one every week. lauren, this is what we will he do. you'll keep on walking and you'll sit. i'm just going to talk. there you go. that's your seat, young lady. have you that one.

we have more of our interview with apple ceo tim cook. i think about this. young people, i sound so -- you young people, everywhere in your life you have your ipad. you have your phone. it's all digital, right? then when you go into a classroom it's analog. so i talked to apple ceo about their initiative with the white house to upgrade technology at schools all across the country. i met him in tuskegee last year and new york on tuesday. you want to see the progress? okay. here it is. ? >> you guys are very excited over here. the sixth graders at par lemm's ps 161 know a thing or two about coding and couldn't wait to show off their skills to apple ceo tim cook.

you know, one of the things that we seek to do is really increase student engagement in a major way and one of the measures of that arguably is our attendance and attendance is significantly up there. now, with that, students are learning more and the math scores are also up. so we feel really good. >> talking to the few of the students here and asking them, their eyes light up and they say, everywhere else in their lives it's all about the tablet and then used to be when they'd come into the classroom and it was like an analog experience if you will. >> you are on a good point. you and i were born in an analog world. these kids are born in a digital world and if they come to school and have an analog environment, it's not conducive to learning. it's not conducive to creativ creativity. we're bringing digital to the schools here and we're focused on underserved schools. >> goes like that. >> reporter: the future of our
