isis and who was contemplating attacking pope francis. the juvenile sought to conduct a detailed homeland attack which included multiple attackers, phiarms and multiple explosives targeting a foreign dignitary at a high-profile event according to an august joint bulletin from the fbi and homeland security. sources tell abc news the pope was among the considered targets, and this is what mike mccaul, chairman of the house homeland security committee expressed concern about on "this week" last sunday. >> we are monitoring very closely threats against the pope as he comes into the united states, we have disrupted one particular case in particular. >> reporter: but sources familiar with the case tell abc news that the threat was not imminent and that the boy's plans were at the aspirational stage. on monday officials say there is no threat to the pope. it shows isis is using social media to inspire lone wolves, even children.
7:08 am
the bulletin goes on to state the minor obtained explosives instructions and further disseminated these instructions through social media. the social media threat from isis and so-called lone wolves is growing. and with the pope set to arrive a week from today, this kind of un unpredictable threat is what law enforcement must prepare for. george. >> that is going on in new york and washington. okay, pierre, thanks very much. the race for president now, "your voice, your vote," and that huge texas rally for donald trump, thousands in an arena last night sparking a tense clash outside over trump's policy. all for the next debate tomorrow night. good morning. you. just behind me this is where the mavericks play, 20,000 people and all the cheers were for donald trump last night of the tickets were sold out. not every seat was filled. there were some e.mpty pockets but still a massive crowd and for the first time something we haven't seen this cycle yet an

7:11 am
he walks into that center stage wearing a big bull's-eye. during the last debate the only attacks came from the moderators. the candidates, the others thought they could simply ignore him. nobody thinks they can ignore him anymore. look at how his position changed. right before the last debate, trump was the clear front-runner, but the more traditional candidates like scott walker and jeb bush were not far behind. now trump is the prohibitive front-runner. the only one close is another outsider, ben carson, establishment candidates, the senator, governors on the verge of disappearing. those at the back of the pack will be looking for a breakthrough moment in this debate and the surest way to get a breakthrough moment is going to be picking a fight with the front-runner, donald trump. >> create that confrontation. we know trump has been going after jeb bush and also took on carly fiorina in that "rolling stone" interview saying look at that face and she's coming back hard. she's going to be onta stage for the first time tomorrow night. >> yeah, and that's going to be one of the interesting subplots
7:12 am
in the debate. the first time trump has had a woman on the table with him and one he has fought with vigorously. fiorina has shown she is not afraid to throw punches at trump and traufrp made it clear he will not hold back from attacking her or going after her record as the ceo of hewlett-packard and not holding back at all simply because she is a woman. >> a lot of sparks flying tomorrow night, jon karl, thanks very much. >> now overseas to the humanitarian crisis in europe. the worst since world war ii. hundreds of thousands fleeing war and devastation and this morning hungary declaring a state of emergency watch becoming the latest country to close its borders. abc's terry moran is in serbia on the border with hungary. good morning, terry. >> reporter: good morning, robin. this is the new reality at the hundred gatherian border. thousands waiting overnight but the gate is closed and look behind me there, hungarian police in riot gear now authorized to use rubber bullets against anyone who tries to cross.

7:16 am
>> we didn't want it to happen this way. he made that decision. >> reporter: police say lamb is also a suspect in an earlier killing nearly five hours south near biloxi. they say that victim is 41-year-old amy prentiss and say the two were romantically involved and lived together and he called them to report that killing and told them he wasn't going to jail. currently sharing no motive for either shooting. they're calling that second victim his girlfriend. there is a vigil scheduled on the campus tonight. amy. >> all right, steve osunsami, thanks for the latest on that. also breaking overnight a new threat from north korea. kim jong-un's government announcing it has restarted a nuclear reactor and is ready to use nuclear weapons, quote, any time against the united states. analysts say the threat may be a ploy aimed at pressuring the u.s. into restarting talks. the threat also comes weeks before a major political anniversary in that country. and health alert affecting millions of americans. for the first time ever medical

8:16 am
severe pain can oftentimes be an indicator something is somewherely wrong. >> with pain often comes swelling. >> swelling can sometimes be seen with something as simple as a sprain but you can also see swelling when you have broken a bone and have a fracture site that's bleeding and some spraps are more complicated than others. >> walking on a broken bone can lead to long-term complications. and an excruciating crack or pop, not something to ignore. >> that's a fairly ominous finding. hear something like that please get checked out right away. it can sometimes occur with simple sprains buttentypes we hear those when you have tendon rupture or when you have a broken bone. >> here with us now, dr. jen ashton. loving this series. >> same. >> it's sparking a lot of interest. what is going on underneath the skin when we have pain. >> let me show you some ain the economy. the run-of-the-mill sports injury here. look underneath the surface of the skin, you've got fat, you've got some blood vessel, you've got this layer that we call
8:17 am
fascia, that band that keeps everything in place. when you have an injury you have some shearing forces so you get a disruption or blood invests can be torn and causes bleeding. when it fors in the space it builds up, causes pressure and expands in a space that normally doesn't have something like that. we call ha a hematoma and that causes pain. >> you know, you hear this all the time. i don't want to take anything. it's going to pass. it's going to pass. what do you say when we are being so stub 3w0r7b in thinking it's just going to go away. >> i try to tell people don't bite the bullet because as a trained surgeon we know that actually having pain can delay healing and if you go through the body literally head to toe you can see the effects. pain can increase heart rate, it can increase blood pressure. in some patients it can cause angina for a heart attack. your respiratory system. you don't take full deep breaths and can cause poor oxygenation or buildup of secretions leading to pneumonia and your hormones.
8:18 am
all of your stress hormones are activated and that can lead to poor wound healing so truly if you don't treat the pain you might wind up with a situation that's worse than the initial injury. >> so treating the pain and this is one thing that's so confusing. heat or ice? >> big controversy. if you ask a doctor, physical therapist, certified athletic taper we all go by this r.i.c.e., rest, ice and right or wrong way to apply it, put something in between it, never directly on the skin, ten minutes three types a day for the first to to three times a day, compression and like to have someone trained wrap it. you don't want that wrap it ourself and elevate it if possible above the level of your heart. helps with pain, swelling and can expedite your recovery. >> when is a heating pad good for you? >> that's good for muscle spasm. ice for injury, remember, i and i.

8:31 am
a lot of people watching felt offended by your words. what do you want to say. >> >> first of all i mean my behavior was very offensive and i apologized. there is no excuse or there is nothing to justify it. but you know, i think that as human beings we all say and do things that we don't mean at all sometimes and we have to learn from it. that's part of our process. we have to learn from our mistakes and that's how we grow. >> in fact, you put out a video apology where you said i am going to learn from my mistake. as a young role model so many young girls and boys look up to you and i'm sure you have learned that words have weight. tell me what you've changed, what you've learned based on that experience. >> i think one of the biggest things i learned from that is what it feels like to disappoint so many people who love and believe in you and that's an e. excruciating feeling and you have to remember your word, your actions have, you know,
8:32 am
ramifications and you have to really think about what you're about to say and do because it's important. it's important to so many people and, yeah. >> you have so many fans who love and adore you and support you and you've got some exciting news for them and i think it's fairly obvious. you have a grande bottle. >> this is actually for you. this was only your supply. >> thank you. >> this one is for you. >> so tell me about your new fragrance glance. >> it's called ari by ariana grande because it's my fragrance and, yeah, it's like really sweet and yummy and this is it. >> and so it's a beautiful bottle. >> you were involved in not only the design but how it smells. what was it like? you're obviously a pop star and you say it's all about the notes still. >> i'm fairly new to the fragrance industry, i guess. but it is kind of like making a song. you pick a bunch of different notes and they could make a pretty chord or ugly chord and it smells awful or it smells great. it's just like music.
8:33 am
>> how would you describe the scent? what does it smell like. >> really sweet. there's a little bit of marshmallow, a little bit of -- >> marshmallow? >> yeah, raspberry. >> you have a social media campaign surround your fragrance and it's called #beyou campaign. explain that. >> it's all about being yourself and embracing who you are and sort of just, you know, being you, i guess because sometimes it can be hard to be yourself in a world where there's such high standards and people tell you have to be a certain kind of beautiful or, you know, only one type of body is being glorified in the media or something but you know be you is really about inspiring others to feel comfortable in their own skin and embracing yourself and it's okay to feel confident and be you. >> you have a lot of reasons to feel confident. you have so many hit, "problem," "break free" now working on new music we hear. any hint on what we can expect? >> i'm announcing the first
8:34 am
single really soon. >> really soon? >> yeah, really soon. >> like really, really soon. >> like this week soon. very soon. >> very exciting that is big news and we should mention your big brother frankie was here. >> he covered you in glitter. >> i walked away -- i'm still actually looking for glitter on me. he talked about how close you are. how you sing around the house. what are some of your go-to songs when the two of you are singing around? >> oh, god. we love singing -- i don't know. it's always either like some sort of campy musical theater song or madonna or some sort of ridiculous 'nsync throwback moment. >> i'm open any day of the week i like to sing too. ariana grande, thanks for joining us, we appreciate it. >> thanks for having me. ari by ariana grande available in select stores now and let's head back out to ginger. >> what a star-studded morning

8:41 am
york times" best-seller written by tory jones. >> here with bargains up to 77% off. >> i understood how she struggled her whole life and was overweight and how she felt self-conscious in her job. >> she kept a blog and took no shortcut posting pictures of her progress. >> i have a fitbit and use it to track my food, my water. to keep me on top of things. when i first started, my jeans were super, super tight and now i'm in 12s that are getting big. to understand how much weight i had lost i'll go to the grocery store and pick up 70 pounds of kitty litter. you can't understand how much you lose until you're physically holding it in your hands. >> reporter: when tory lers of kaolin's story they connected with tory cheering her on all the way. >> i'm here at quinnipiac university to surprise her. i brought an extra treat, a $500 gift certificate to the gap. i think i hear her coming. >> kaolin. >> oh, my god. >> hi. >> you're gorgeous. >> thank you.
8:42 am
>> do you feel great. >> yeah. >> i brought you a little present. >> are you serious? thank you, thank you, thank you. >> reporter: the gift certificate will help kaleolin with one of the most costly parts of losing weight, buying a new wardrobe for her new body. >> i've changed as a person and changed my whole personality. it's more than just weight loss. >> it is and i tell you, nothing brings this woman more joy than to bring other people joy like you did with cailyn. >> she's one of so many others who we heard from who say i could never do this and inspired her father to lose 50 pounds, her mother that day was crying to me saying we cried everything and nothing worked. nothing will work until you are ready and i know that. i know that. >> you know that because you wanted to show before and after pictures. you wanted people to remind people this is what you wanted to do. >> yeah. >> oh, my gosh. how did you allow me on television.
8:43 am
>> oh, come on. >> seriously, seriously. >> when somebody said to me you don't look your best there's no way around that. there's no way to argue that. that's true. we don't need to show it anymore. and so what i think about, your mom, your mom saying make your mess your message and god knows i had a mess and to be able to use that to help other people for me is the greatest thing. >> i got to say this, we never saw that tory. we just saw -- we saw the beauty, we saw the compassion and all that. this is something that you wanted to do. >> absolutely. >> and you said, if only -- had you to stop -- >> if only i had to stop saying. i thought for 40 years if only i could lose weight it could be perfect. there's no easy path to life's success. it did not make me immune to career disappointment or the incredible sadness of my kids going off to college and leaving me. you know, with an empty nest and what i realized is that we all have these if onlies and use them as a crutch and such a
8:44 am
dangerous way to live thinking if only i had a better spouse, if only i had my kids at home rather than that college dorm or i had more money and it prevents us from doing the hard work every single day to bring joy, happiness and good health and it does take work every single day. i want to talk about a couple of those. so i believe from morning till night so i have my secret drawer here, red underwear, okay. the story -- >> do tell. >> when you bake up in the important and feel like the world is against you and you've got so much to do, that's your little hidden power secret. that's you being able to say to yourself i got this. now. >> i am wearing it right now. of course, my big day then i end the night i made this pill show for myself. a lilttle "deals & steals." what went wrong? we're thinking about all the stuff we forgot and all the things we didn't do so this helps me to sort of celebrate the good things. i took a page from george and
8:45 am
dan harris and learned meditation. if that's not your thing a ten-minute walk around 9 block every single day in the middle of the day, no device, that's your moment of calm. my last thing, okay, when you feel like doom and gloom, the world is against you, instead of reaching for cupcakes or chips like i used to you grab a balloon, right. you grab a balloon and empty moon and you release all that negativity. instead of taking to social media and being a hater on bingeing on stuff, you sort of blow into that balloon all that stuff you've got to release and you let go of it. >> let it go. >> with every breath i blow into this balloon i'm releasing negativity that can no longer occupy precious space inside me. "shift for good." that's what it's about. it's changing the way you think in order to change the way you feel. >> absolutely. absolutely. and that for me is the key to losing weight, to being happier in all ways. >> are we happy?
