border or margin. put it simply, if you see a spot, see a change, then see a doctor. >> is this true for all races? for instance, i'm going to maybe spot it on myself a little better than say an african-american, but african-americans have to look at different spots of their bodies. where do they need to focus? >> absolutely. in african-americans, palms and soles turn out to be the most common locations for melanoma. we recommend any kind of changing freckle on the poums or soles should be -- palms or soles should be checked out. >> how can we protect it? >> seek shade, stay out of the sun in the hours of 10:00 to 2:00. wear sun screen and clothing that covers the arms, the neck. hats and glasses and all of those things are quite important to protect yourself.
>> we know so much more about this than when we were children. it is easier now to protect ourselves. where can people go to find out more information? certainly your foundation? >> our web site, www.withinthefight.org. we have extensive information for everyone. >> will we continue to see these p.s.a.'s with cam cameron? >> yes. >> yes. he's quite the spokesperson. >> well, he knows. thank you for joining us. >> thank you very much. >> please don't go away. we'll have more news when we come back.
>> welcome back, everyone. baltimore's fashionistas. an event kicked off with our own ava marie in her green and sarah caldwell was also a model. >> well from fashion to beauty. the summer's hottest beauty trends are here. >> good morning. >> good morning. >> nice to see you. color is really big. we saw a lot of color in fashion, color blocking, mixing
and matching. we are seeing a lot of that in make-up, too. we will talk about three great trends anyone can try, and it is pretty inexpensive to dip and dab in it. the first is bright eye shadows. i know you had an issue with some of these colors. >> with my skin tone, can you just wear it? >> you have to try, but you also have to take it with a grain of salt what it looks like in the actual cut. it is condenced color. you have to decide what kind of color you want to try and try it. >> what color do you think i should try? >> the blue. >> and what about the purple? >> you get this gleam -- >> another way that you can do your eye shadow. it does not have to be powder. there is liquid eye shadow, pencil. you have a lot of options that don't compete. if you are going to do a bright color on the lip, leave the lip nude. try it. >> ok. and then also we talk about rosy
pinks for the cheeks which you and i both love. there are a lot of different variations. you have the fuscia hot pinks. you love tart. >> i love that blush. >> it is an eco friendly product. anyone will have a g great pink. try it on again, because it can look one way here, too. then you get it on and you find out it looks different. >> you look crazy walking down the street. >> and here we've got, you know, taupe eye shadow, black mascara, and gold foil for the summer. again, you have to be careful for the gold. this is a pretty kind of mainstream safe gold to do. laura martinez, a really great gold, and then you have luster eye colors. there is just really a lot that you can play with. have fun with it. don't get stuck in the red and the browns and neutrals like i tend to do. have fun with color.
see if it works. >> is there anything different? >> i think it is just application. a lot of women are used to using the brushes. it goes on very different than the pen crifment l will. >> what else do we need to keep in mind. >> i would say have fun with color. also a couple colors you need to stay away from in the lip department, blue believe it or not is really big. they also say yellows. a lot of women have very yellow undertones so yellow doesn't always show as well. >> i don't p think you want to be -- i don't think you want to be walking around with blue lips . >> blue dresses, not blue lips. >> they are nice. >> i'm more of a natural girl so i stick with the taupes and red and all of that. any of these, hot pink, blues, yellows. have fun with it. >> i would stay away from the green tone because you don't want to look like shrek.
>> it looks beautiful out right now as well. at least for the first half of the day we'll have mostly sunny skies. that's what we're seeing at thurgood marshall. just a little chilly. as we step outside, winds west at 3 miles per hour. as we head toward the afternoon, a few clouds build in with a slight chance for shower or thunderstorm. if you have plans, i wouldn't cancel anything yet. keep in mind, you may see isolated storms. winds to the west 10 to 15 miles per hour. cooler weather on the way. better rain chances. we'll talk about that when we come back in the insta-weather plus forecast. >> thanks, ava. time now for a look at what's coming up on "meet the press." hi, david. >> good morning, jennifer. >> bad news all around. stocks down, bad jobs report, and both campaigns taking aim at one another. a couple guests on this morning will address that. >> to the ohio governor and john
kasich both interested. kasich an all-important ohio. his economy is doing better than the national economy is, certainly the national unemployment rate. and patrick leading the charge against mitt romney's record as governor of massachusetts. this is a straight economic debate. we'll have it on the program. we're at that point already in the campaign. if there was any doubt, it is certainly the economy that will be the centerpiece of whether president obama can be re-elected. these jobless numbers hurt. i think the president was hoping and counting on the idea that job creation was going to keep going in an up direction instead of what's happened, which is in the early part of the year it was going well, and now a steady decline as the number of jobs gets smaller and smaller and smaller. the prospect of what's happening becoming a global slowdown has an impact this year. >> and the romney campaign
saying don't worry. is the president going to start feeling the pressure now? >> i think the pressure will be there all along. >> if the fundamental issue is the economy, it becomes a referendum in some way, shape, or form. you can try to make it about your opponent, but you have to live up to that record. he has to figure out a way to go about his record of accomplishment and make the case that things are going to get better and that he's essentially preventing something worse. it is a difficult case to make. >> in the midst of all this, a serious situation going on in syria this week. he's being pressured, the president is, to take military action. but at least for now, he is saying no. do you think he could have changed his position on that? >> i don't know. i think there is not a lot of great choices in syria. a lot of pressure being put on russia to put pressure to get assad to step down.
the idea of intervening seems to be far off. the united nations doesn't seem to be having a lot of luck. there are a lot of chase changes made to other conflicts like libya. this one seems to be a little paralyzing. >> it is a reminder we neeled to keep an eye on these situations. >> yes, and it is' a re minder of some instability in these areas. >> will we have a report of tornadoes? >> i think we did have a tornado north and south of the city. it was an eventful friday evening. >> don't forget, you can watch "meet the press" later this morning on wbal-tv 11 news following 11 news at 9:00 a.m. >> in north baltimore residents kicked off the charles village fund festival.
it featured live music from two stages, beer and wine, and plenty to do for the kids. community leaders were relieved to see that they did not see one raindrop after the recent storms. >> this festival is a great day after the recent storms. i was afraid we would be rained out again this year. >> if we missed it yesterday, you can visit the festival today. >> still ahead on 11 news, animal rescue joins us with a pet looking for a good home. >> a great time to explore the eastern shore. baltimore magazine is up next to tell you some of the fun things you can do this summer. >> it is another sunny start to the day. coming up, i'll tell you why we may see showers later this afternoon. de
>> weather has been much quieter today compared to that winter weather update. they confirmed seven tornados touched down around the state of maryland. most of them in maryland which start in to countryside then moved over. that was an ef-o. those only traveled about a mile. these are weak tornados that happened. winds anywhere from 65 to 800 -- to 80 miles per hour. they were strong enough to cause damage. trees down, roof damage as well. we also had wind damage with
pinds at at least 90 miles per hour. the clean-up continues on the back side of this winter weather update. we are starting off the day with dry weather. we see the satellite picture with a few clouds building in from the west. those clouds associated with the upper level storm system over the great lakes region. cold system out to sea. this warm front will be p energy could spark showers.

found across the bay bridge. as you can get across the bridge. susan joins us now with more. >> it is a challenge sometimes to get over that bridge during the summer. >> why this subject and this issue? what did you find out? >> we found a lot of great things. we figure a lot of people go straight straight from here to the beach. there is so much to do in between. we wanted to give people ideas of what they can check out while they are driving. >> crage? >> this amazing -- >> cambridge? >> this amazing town. it has great restaurants. there are little art shops and galleries. it is a great place to stop by. >> and the skip jack? >> i know, these classic sailboats which you don't see anymore, you can actually in crage -- cambridge, you can go out several days a week.
st. michaels, they all have various boats. then you want to see how the boats are made, they actually see them where you can go and learn about it in cambridge, but in st. michaels, you can actually get saw dust under your fingernails and see it firsthand. >> and then in chestertown? >> chestertown, another great little town. it actually had its own tea party during colonial days which they reason act each year. otherwise, you can visit bookstores. they have lots of bookstores, which is great, and little book shops and other places, and bistros where you can get that local lower food. -- lore food. talk about getting things from the farm to the table, eastern shore is just fresh. >> as you are driving, there are produce stands. >> terrific. it is not just the seafood great there, too. it is just all those -- even the
beef, everything. they get everything right to the table quickly. >> and you say lighthouses? >> oh, my gosh, yes. you can climb the lighthouses. not all of them are the tall cylindrical ones you can think of. the ones at st. michael's is more like a little cottage on stilts. >> and gilbirdie? >> yes, the black water refuge has great frails and you can drive or take a bike and see ofspry and egrets. >> also was it one summer when there was the sighting of michael jackson? there are so many -- there are a lot of celebrities that have places over there. >> yeah, they feel they can hide out there, which mostly they can. >> do you run into anybody? >> no. what can you hope? >> ok. so take your time. it is nice to pull off in some of these places.
i bet you there are great bed and breakfast places along the way. >> there are terrific ones where they treat you like family and get a great breakfast in addition to that. >> the june issue. i hope people check it out. >> thank you. >> and there are more things to see and do at the shore. look for it in this month's issue of baltimore magazine on news stands now. stay with us. animal rescue is next with a pet looking for a good home. first a look at last night's winning lottery numbers. #f#f#f#f
>> welcome back. joining us is a pet looking for a good home. this pet had a horrible encounter. >> this is body. he was found back at the end of april by a kind man. he had a blood clock clot on his foot, and as a result he lost his foot. they were able to save most of his foot and one of his toes. we named him body, because now it looks like he's doing the hang loose surfer thing. but you would never know he had a problem. this is what he does. he gets along with other cats and dogs.
>> how does that impact his life? >> he still has the balance. we notice he's not quite using it walk yet. he is using it to bathe, and he uses it in the litter box. that may be all he does. medically, he should be completely healed. there shouldn't be any -- you know, anymore vet follow-ups or things. we will wait a week or so before we put him up for adoption. >> he'll be at pet smart next sunday, 1:00 to 3:00. >> because he's a special cat, what kind of home would be good for him? >> i would think a quiet home. although he does like to play with the other cats and dogs. we don't allow declawing. he loves to sleep with you, loves to cuddle. i think a quiet home. he loves playing with the kids yesterday. maybe he'll figure it out on his
own. >> now you are pairing up with all the other rescue shelters in the baltimore 500. how long does that run? >> i'm not exactly sure. i asked this morning, and i left a message to find out, and honestly, i didn't get an answer. >> i think it is through the month of june where you are waving -- waiving adoption fees. >> i don't know if we will waive them completely. we are offering some promotions. >> so this is a good time to get out. if you would like to help out body or any of the other cute little animals in the rescue shelter here in baltimore, call the animal rescue number at their number. you can also go www.animalrescue inc.org. >> if you would like to see him before sunday, we can make an appointment and set that up. >> good. thank you for being here.
>> good morning. i want to talk about a conversation i had yesterday with sam cook, the ravens punter. i hadn't had a chance to talk to sam since the afc championship game. of course it ended on a billy cundiff field goal, one billy has taken full responsibility for missing. there was chaos on the sidelines leading up to the kick. here is how sam saw things. >> it was a mess at that time. you know, kind of looking up at the score clock and everything and seeing what down it was, and i originally thought it was second down.
we never heard any field goal alert calls or anything like that. the next thing i know, jerry was on the field. i thought maybe we were kicking on third down. apparently it was fourth down. the play clock up there and the board was only reading third down. it was really a complete mess. i think we could read that at all, it would have probably been to have just called a time-out, reset, and just not have everybody so rushed. >> a little miscommunication part of that tougheneding at the afc title game. >> the orioles got back on track last night. maddus was spectacular. a little run support. from an unlikely source. chavez gets his second r.b.i. of the year. maddus struck out seven, all swinging. he went 7 1/3 and give up one run.
fires. the run there, but the perfect slide from sean rodriguez. tied at 1. now top seven. chopper to third. fire drive to first. mark reynolds comes in. flaherty follows. a two-run game. baltimore in the league. bases loaded. paid row in relief. so delicious. 4-6-3 double play. ents the inning. -- ends the inning. just eight pitches needed. matsue grounds out to second. madison wins 2-1 the final. orioles go for the series victory. later today, jake arietta on the mound. that's a look at sports. i'm pete gilbert. see you back here tonight at

tail we ground up. he is probably one of the pest sushi around. -- sushi chefs around. >> i know whole foods carries this. it is a spicy sauce. you don't want to do too much. >> unless you like your mouth on fire. >> yes. >> that sort of thing. what are some of the other things you serve there? >> starting june 17 we have a new menu coming out. we'll have a bunch of new items out of the kitchen. we'll have a few sushi items we will be offering. this is definitely a roll for the summer. he is adding sticks to it. slice it down really, really little. it is a cool roll. it is different. it is not your traditional sushi roll. >> it stays together, gives it
