8:02 am
>> they crowd ut out of syria? >> no, i don't think so him probably because after a week, we have a fairly good idea of where and when they're flying and we're up a lot more often than they are and so we do have to move around for separation. it's for a small period of time compared to the hours airborne over iraq and syria. despite the russian, brown says he plans to increase airstrikes against isis sank schuarys in syria. the goal of the air campaign is to destroy isis t. crews of these b-1 bombers have a mission to keep a safe distance between themselves and the russians. >> a great report by david. >> yeah, fascinating to see. this looks like for control of the airspace over syria as well as, you know, now this report which is the front page of the paper say russian soldiers may join the syrian fight. this is picking up. >> calling volunteers. >> you had asked about that in your interspru.

. in our morning rounds of wearables make up one of the
8:08 am
fastest growing tech industry. this year's sales could reach nearly $5 guilty. our dr. tara narula is here with a new device that tries to change how you feel. good morning. >> good morning. wearable technology enables its users to track how many steps they take or camrys they eat a. new product on the wearable market doesn't try to change the number on the scale. instead, it wants to change your mood, using electric stimulation. if you turn to coffee for jolt or a glass of wine to relax, a wearable tech company wants you to consider an alternative. electric current. what is the basis behind the concept of using electric stimulation to change your mood? >> we have nerves on the head and neck that connect directly to our brains, those nerves normally give a lot of input about what's going on around us. so what we do, we're signaling those nerves electrically to trigger your body to respond, fis logically.
8:09 am
>> reporter: the new device called think costs nearly $300. it fits on the forehead and the back of the head. it comes with two settings, energy or calm, controlled through a smartphone app. because it is considered a wellness or lifestyle product rather than a medical device, it's not subject to fda regulation. the ceo of think. what do you think is the ideal person to use the think? >> somebody with an attitude that they have a full life that, attitude of conquering life, conquering your day or on the calm mode side somebody who wants to unwind during the day because life is stressful. >> reporter: think delivers a low dose of electric current to the surface of the skin. they claim the electric pulses or what think calls vibes change brain activity by stimulating sensitive cranial nerves on the face or on the back of the head. think demonstrated the device to first time users in new york
8:10 am
>> the heart rate is low, but i feel looind kind of great at the same time. >> reporter: users are advised to wear the product between 10 to 15 when the itself minutes a session, for no more than 60 minutes a day. >> i think this design is really different and futuristic. >> but the concern i guess for some is maybe are you limiting people by giving them a quick text stick to an area where maybe we should be learning how to self regulate our emotions. >> if you practice, you become self aware of what it feels like to be motivated and/or centered and how to handle stress. >> think believes humans can't control their own biological responses, randy brew no, a neuroscientist at columbia university disagrees. >> almost everything we do during the day is manipulating our biology. what you drink. what you eat. these are all active choices we make to change our biology, to change our mood. >> reporter: he's also skeptical
8:11 am
if the scientific testing by think proves the brain's physiology and chemistry. >> is it really activating a part of your brain? they don't know that. they need to do more research on >> i wanted to learn what the vibes felt like. >> okay. >> choosing the calm setting in the middle of my day. >> i feel like someone is like tickling my hair and my head. it's so interesting. >> this is about a journey where there is another choice. now the question is, will this choice of digital versus a chemical choice, how does that weave into life? i imagine a feature whether it's think or anyone else, where we are using programs to do things that we want. it's not just a gimmick. it's like it really does help people to be able to relax, it really helps you. >> it sounds like a great idea. are you a doctor. what do you think? >> i think fis logically it does make sense.
8:12 am
research to make for sure t. neuroscientists says we are charging the chemicals in the brain. i certainly felt a sensation on the skin and the ear. so something was going on, but i didn't feel that calm sensation for hours afterwards. >> did it hurt? >> it didn't hurt, no, it didn't hurt. >> any concerns about the attractiveness? i'm thinking, maybe they need to work on the design a little bit longer. i could see people sobbing. are you okay? do you have any other concerns about the device? >> i think one of the biggest things is long term side effects. peej use it for hours at a time, in kids or adolescents with brains still developing, throws the two major concerns. >> i think it brings up a point. boost. there are other ways to change the body. >> we are just beginning to >> we are. >> it's interesting. the brain, yes, thank you. >> thank you, dr. tar. >> reporter: if you like a little mystery with your shopping prescription,

run around. they couldn't get a real person on the phone, their messages didn't get returned. they couldn't get through by e-mail. >> this happened with fabletics, kate hudson's company, a huge backlash? >> massive backlash, thousands of complaints. >> her company said quote we make it very clear during a fabletics shopping experience and multiple places if a customer takes advantage of these membership prices, he or she is joining our vip service. still is it confusing to customers? have you looked? is it buried in fine print? >> you have to go many screens through to get a clear description. let's face it. if you are a company and you got tens of thousands of people complaining via social media and the better business bureau they got ripped off, presumably for tens of thousands of other people too busy to go public, either these people are all stupid or something happened here by design to trick people and take advantage of people's limited attention span?
8:18 am
>> so any recommendations to offer a way to get out of it? >> well, the one. in general, if you are signing up for a subdescription service, you do have to read the fine print, yourself. at minimum, you should research the company you are doing business with the you haven't heard of it. if you use a credit card that you trust. you use a credit card where you know if there is a dispute can you call up the credit card company and say, look, i'm getting rinned off here, please can sell the charge. then the company now has to deal with the credit card company to try to get their money instead of you having to deal with it. >> has this company changed its practice? >> well, they say they didn't need to change their practice. so we really don't know. >> there is no indication? >> that's right. >> 15 different times and notifications? >> correct. >> note to self, radio ted fine print. most people don't. >> this is the story of our times. it's the fine print. >> thank you, peter.

8:27 am
paper, cardboard and metal can make sense. it's fairly economical to do that. it has some environment am benefits. we have this weird obsession we are cycling everything. we should get to a zero weight society. most garbage is garbage. it's not that worthwhile to recycle. it's pretty expensive to do that. >> what's the biggest many mistake in recycleing? >> trying to get everything done, doing food, plastics, exotic things, glass is a big mistake. it breaks, and you end up with this glass that nobody wants. they actually have to pay to get rid of it. so we should be selective. more and more politicians are saying, i'm going to get our recycling rate up to 50%, 75% or zero waste. what we should do is recycle what makes sense and throw the other stuff away. >> we were always told everything makes sense, like this plastic. where do you stand on plastic, john? >> plastic.
8:28 am
there is a slight environmental benefit from it. it does reduce greenhouse emission a little bit. it saves energy when you recycle plastic. just to give you an idea of the scale to offset the emissions from one trip to europe, wow would have to recycle 40,000 bottles. the savings so little. if you rinned them in hot water, just a little energy could offset all the savings, you'd end up putting more carbon in the atmosphere. >> americans generate 250 million pounds of trash a year. what about the idea that there won't be enough land films to hold all of that trash, some of it's got to be recycled? >> that was the big fear back in the ''80s when they couldn't find a place for it. in fact, there is plenty of room in the united states to bury trash. we have all this open land, all the bar gage we would generate for the next thousand years. >> where is all this open land, not around new york city? >> people don't want to have it
8:29 am
i visited this landfill in virginia. it's hidden back in the woods. they pay so much property taxes, they have beautiful schools. so it makes sense, it's carefully lined. it's monitored. it's out there. then after these landfills are filled, they cover them with grass and they turn them into parks. >> the as soon as you point out is clear. you weigh the cost benefits. what about just the value of recycleing? with my children i like the idea that they think about the environment and the earth. they think about not overusing too many plastic bags, reuseing one bag every time you go to the grossry store. doesn't the value of that? >> i agree with that. i started recycleing because my daughter became a little needs in the house. in 6th grade, she said, we have to, we have to. now, listen to you, i show her your article. see, see, kirby. >> i think it's nice to tell kids not to waste things.
8:30 am
i think we're getting this warped maevenlth i went to a 3rd grade classroom where they spent the entire week of the science class studying garbage. they had the idea garbage was going to destroy the earth. they were doing all these terrible things. i wanted to say all the stuff in that yogurt container came out of the earth. we took it out, made a nice product. now we will put it safely back in the earth. i mean, it's not good to scare kids. i mean, we're not running out of these teemplts we have plenty of room to bury it. there are more important things. i wish they would study more important things than garbage. >> when you wrote about this in 1996, you were not a popular person. >> it set the hate mail. >> what about this time? >> this time, it's anger. it's a moral issue. it's hard to persuade people if you think it's morally wrong to throw away gar back. i respect that's a moral
