7:11 am
as it takes to get his message out. now with more, here's mat. >> carl paladino is the tea party backed candidate for governor of new york. >> you have seemed to embrace the mantle of the angry candidate, is that what you think voters want right now? >> i don't think it's anger. i think it's people that are very frustrated and i'm just a reflectionf that frustration. >> but they're frustrated at the status quo, what they have seen in washington and in state houses across this country for years and years. isn't part of that status quo anger and rage? srvet it nasty campaigning between candidates that gets pele know where once an official is elected? >> we have left that gutter politics. we're interested in talking about the issues. >> how can you turn a corner like that, how can you practice that gutter politics and all of a sudden say that's not me anymore.
7:12 am
>> that's reaction, that was started by cuomo. they came out and attacked, attacked, attacked. >> you said this campaign will get nastier, that was a promise. if it's going to get nastier, are you going to participate it in or have you tned a corner? >> if that's the direction he wants to go in. we want to speak issues, we have challenged him to a debate. we're willing to debate every day from now until election day. we want to get those issues out to the people. we want him to answer to obama care, we want him to answer for the reckless mandates that are out there right now. >> one of the things you have said mr. paladino is tha you are going to ke a baseball bat to albany. you said i'm going to crack heads and i'm going to change things. those candidates get elected and th go to the state house or the white house and they run into the system and all of a
7:13 am
sudden they reaze they don't need to crack heads, they need to build bridges. i don't think you're a bridge builder. >> we have been conditioned over the years to think that government in albany is the way government should be two men in a room. that's not the representative of the republic that the constitution outlined. we have legislators that sit there and wait for shelshell -- >> inmore general terms, obviously there's a lot of democrats out there who don't like you, it's a democratically dominated state. there are some republicans who don't like you, the state chairman of the conservative party said something, and i'm paraphrasing here that if you won the primary, it would be a dark period for the republican party. rick lazio apparently has a low opinion of you. who's your base who's going to help you get things done if you win and go to albany. >> my baseball bat is the
7:14 am
people. the people. i have been speaking to the people for the last few months. that's why we had that huge plurality in the republican primary and that's why we're going to have this mandate coming to us from the entire electorate. it's the people and nobody wants to listen to the people. these rulers in albany who have been feeding at the public trough for so long, they don't want to change. >> you have admitted to sending a series of e-mailshat people have found highly offensive, there was language and words that were very offensive. there were charact zragss, even of president obama and michelle obama that many found highly offensive. you said that showed bad judgment. you're sayin that now when you're running for governor, you didn't when you pushed the send button on those e-mails. >> they want an answer as to why an debs cuomo took a bribe. >> they want to know if the
7:15 am
person who's running for govern has good judgment. do you have good judgment? >> i have illustrated that for my entire career. we have ask andrew cuomo to explain his actions when he put his thumb on the prosecution of an debris farcus at hud. >> many think this is going to be a referendum on barack obama is that the way you see it or something else? >> new york state the people are concerned with a government that's recklessly spending their money, that's overtaxing them, that's burdening them withll kinds of rules and regulations and for sure is not paying attention to the creation of good, fulfilling jobs. i will do that. >> carl paladino who's running for governor of new york. thank you for ur time this morning. now to eorts to make cars safer. the government is rolling out a new vehicle safety rating system

7:35 am
terrible danger? >> once we started seeing that the three boats were coming towards us and then they started chasing us, and then we just started hearing the fires, the gun fire. >> and then your husband was shot and you we fed with an agonizing decision, you either went back and tried to save him or saved your ownife or attempted to save your own life. can you tell us about that moment for you? >> when i looked bac after i had seen some bullets hit the water next to me, i looked back to check on david and i saw him fly over the jet ski and he had been hit. i quickly turned around and went to him and jumped off my jet ski and i had to turn him over because he was facedown in the water and turned him over and he was shot in the head. and that's when a boat came up,
7:36 am
one of the boats came up to me. and had a gun pointed at me trying to -- and that's when ey left and that's when i tried saving david and getting him on my jet ski but i couldn't get him up and i kept hearing god telle you have to go, you have to go. so i had to leave him. so i could get to safety. >> and i know that -- they have not recovered your husband's body or your son's body, dennis and pam, how are you coping? >> well, we're hacking in there. we have had a lot of support from friends here and everywhere. david's friends in colorado are planning a rally to bring david home. that is this friday in denver,

7:38 am
now, anybody that can help to let us know and to support us and to rally together to get him back home so we can have peace and closure on this and so that never happens to anybody else. >> and now tiffany, the mexican authorities are speaking with a south texas newspaper and questioning your story, they say they fnd no evidence of this attack or your husband's remains, saying we're not certain that this incident happened the way they are telling us. i want to give you a chance to respond to that. >> well, i would have to say that, you know, when the -- they know the pirates are out there, we knew that, we knew that there was a possibilityf them being there. i believe in my heart that they went back and took him and they're hiding our jet ski, they're hiding him.
7:39 am
and we just plea to that we get him back. and when you're looking a the end of the barrel of a gun and wondering if they' just going to shoot you too and wonder if your families are just going to never know where you are, and his mom knew we we there, but it's not anything for david not to call her for a few days. but they're not doing what they need to do to get in that water and find him. they're not getting in the water, they don't have people on the ground, they d't have people looking for him. and that's why we're pleading that. please. bring him back. >> they can'trove it if they don't look. >> tiffany, dennis, pam and nicky hartley, thank you so much, our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. >> thank you. >> now we're going to make a tough turn and get a check of

7:45 am
active volcano and calmly walks around as red hot molten lava bubbles all around. the man behind this is volcanologist mr. mackley. i want to start out by saying i have seen this video and i know others have seen it and some people react this way, they say it's too incredible to be real, this had to be done with some kind of special effect o commuter. how do you respond to that? >> well, i take that as actually the ultimate complement. i mean just in the last few days,he views and comments in that video have gone completely insane, beyond what i would ever imagine. there was 700 e-mail this morning that i woke up to and about half of them went to the point of saying that it's a complete fake and one guy even suggested that i also fake the
7:46 am
moon landings. so i take it with a grain of salt. >> talk to me about where exactly this volcano is and how difficult it was to get you and your team there. >> well, probably until today most people in the united states probably never heard of marum, we spent a lot of money on a helicopter. or you walk for eight hours. then you might encounter some of the worst weather on the planet. this volcanoumps out so much greenhouse gas that it creates it's own weather in effect. so it's not a very nice place. >> you have said that nothing can compare to the mind-blowing rush of being so close to a spectacle like this. i think some people might be watching thinking those would be appropriate words on a tombstone
7:47 am
ifomething went wrong. >> a lot of people mighthink that i'm crazy, but i have actually been doing this for a long time and i'm still alive so that probably says something. but the biggest danger is of falling rocks, on your rope, knocking a rock loose that's going to hit you at 100 miles an hour. that's the biggest danger. of course the volcano could erupt more violently and all the expected and you could also be hit by lightning in the strait. >> i have been near volcanos or lava fields before, the heat is intee. and i was nowhere as close to at kind of a pool of lava as you were. describe the heat and the feeling for me. >> it's very hard to describe the heat, but perhaps anyon who's been close to a major fire or you know a burning factory or something, kwoyou can feel this incredible ray of heat. any firefighter will know exactly, there's a thing called
7:48 am

8:35 am
arre or night, the weather channel on cable or weather.com line. we're going to talk about a survey about the sex lives of america. but first this is "today" on nbc.
8:36 am
8:37 am
this morning on "today's" health, prizing revolution on seal behavior and habits conducted since 1994. nancy snyderman chief medical editor. >> ts is quite a survey, ages 14 to 94 were ask about their sexual habits and i guess the big headlis is about condom use andeenagers seem to be more responsible than older adults when it comes to using condoms. >> i think it's one of the big
8:38 am
headlines and the other one is this study is one of the biggest where we have looked at sex and sexual activity really takes conventional wisdom and turns it upside down. in the united states we always assume that people are having sex, that they're older and that teenagers must be having sex all the ti. finally we have some numbers to go with it. and what you talked about, condom use is one of the interestinthings and that is people who are having sexual relations over the age of 40 are not using condoms as regularly and as responsibly as teenagers. and if you break it down by race, african-americans and latinos are more responsible than white people. and that's a real heads up for people over the age of 40 who think they can't get a sexually transmitted disease. >> exactly, 70% to 80% of teens used a condom the last time they had it. so they are definitely getting the message. >> condoms have now become part of their sexual education and we start of destigmatized it
8:39 am
somewhat. but what does an average 45 or 55-year-old woman think about when she's entering a n sual relationship, whether or not she can get pregnant. but we forget that sexually transmitted diseases can be just as important and hiv has had little spikes in various communities around the country in the post 60-year-old age group in women. so a real reminder unless you're in a monogamous relationship and unless you rlly know your partner and you have unprotected sex, you are taking a risk. >> another important finding is that we tend to think that teens only have sex onheir minds, that's all they want to do. but in fact the study showed that among 17-year-olds, 40% of boys and 31% of gir said they have had sexual intercourse, which is lower than you would have thought. >> lower than you would have thought which i think goeinto the experimentation of that. many haven't had sex for the last 09 days so.
8:40 am
it really goes to the rom"romeod juliet" yet aspect. when a 17-year-old starts to experiment. there's a natural mature ration process. and by 80, 90 and even 94-year-olds were talking about sexualleasure in this study. so i think we have to take the blinders off and start to look at sexual health as health and part of the sort of animal experimentation that goes along with living. >> and it's an interesting finding when it comes to a communication eak down. 85% of men said their ptners climaxed the last time they had sex, 64% of women reported that they actually did and some of ese women even reported having pain and i think this is one of the turn it upside down things. so whether or not women say they're satisfied because they don't want to disappoint a partner, whether women fake an orga orgasm, which means they don't want to disappoint a partner. or whether men always think they are better than they really are,
8:41 am
you can make your own assumptions, that really says that women and men may be having sex but they aren't necessarily talking about what makes it good for either one of them. >> thank you so much. >> you bet, meredith. >> and up next, how do impro your relationship with money and psych yourself rich. this is "today" on nbc.

this morning on joy's diet s.o.s., joy bauer a registered dietitian is addressing everything from vitamin d to bottled green tea. as always,e have got tons of good questions from our viewers. heather in calloway, maryland joins us on the phone "today." go morning, heather, what's your question for joy? >> caller: good morning, joe, my car told me i have low vitamin d levels and encouraged me to eat more dairy food and take a supment. i thought am i supposed to be taking my vitamin d supplement with some sort of fat like 2% milk? help, there's so much confcting information. >> you're absolutely right, vitamin d is a fat soluble
9:16 am
vitamin, and what that means is that it's a vitamin that dissolves in fat. but vitamin d also can be bound or be bound to protein and the protein in a fat free skim milk will do the trick. it will act as a carrier and it will facilitate absorption in the intestines. when itomes to fat free yogurt, not all brand are fortified with vitd minute d.c. so check out out to make sure. the supplents should be taken with the largest mea of the day, either with or after. because the largest meal of the day is going to offer up the most fat. and fat increases or optimizes the absorption of those vitamin d supplements. >> big meal, take the supplement, heather. >> okay, next question comes from marcie and she's also on the phone with us fm great
9:17 am
valley, new york. good morning to you, marci >> caller: good morning, my question is i have a 4-month-old and she gets up still one or two times a night and i was wondering every once in a while i still get a little bit hungry in the morning when she is' awake, and is it okay to have a little snack or should i not? >> and you're breast feeding, that's why you're getting up in the middle of night with her? >> caller: yes. >> it's perfectly fine to have a snack and it makes sense that you' eeare hungry, and when you sleep prived, because you're up around the clock with your baby, your hormones that regulate younger tend to get a little bit messed up so that makes you feelungry as well. if you eat at 2:00 in the monk, or 4:00 in the morning, those calories not automatically going to turn to fat and increase your weight. but that being said, youo want
9:18 am
to be strategic with what you snacking on. first you want to pick something that's low in calories if you're still ting to knock off some of the baby weight, i would say 150 calories or less. and you want to make sure that the quality of your snack is nutrient dense and that's because you're nursing and you want your baby to have quality food. something like a piece of fruit, a rice cake or a smear of peanut butter will do the trick. in the middle of the night when you're really tired sta away from the cookies and the chips and dry serial and the crackers out of the box or out of the bag because it's amazing how much you can eat when you're half asleep. >> when you're breast feeding, is it only like 500 calories a day extra that you need? >> that's exactly right. you need about 500 additional calories beyond what you normally need when you're
9:19 am
nursing, you really areungrier because you still want to watch what you're eating because most women when they're nursing want to knock off some of that baby weight as well. >> next is a viewer e-mail. lois writes, do bottl cold diet green teas have the same nutritional value as hot green teas. >> unfortunately, no. and there was this great report this year and wt it showed is that commercial bottled green teas have significantly less polly fine nolls, and those are those compounds that give green tea all the health promoting benefits and that's because most companiewill typically deliberately remove or lessen the polyppolyphenoles so your b bet is to freshly brew your own green tea. freshly brewed is the keyword
9:20 am
here. and that's going to give you all the benefits and if you don't like ithot, you want to steep it in six ouns of hot or boiling water and then pour it over a glass filled with ice. no more than one or two teaspoons of sugar or drink it straight up. >> bottled green teas generally are nilled with sugar. >> and they are expensive and you can save aot of cash when you make it yourself. and you get all the health promoting benefits. coming up next in our next half hour, eight beauty sins you could be committing, how to avoid them and put your best face forward afterhese messages. i'd get this tightness in my chest. so i went back to my doctor again. we chose symbicort to help control my asthma symptoms all day and night.

( cheers ) only from fisher-price. play. laugh. grow. the cinnamon, the sugar, the crunch. but i am the only one who's been really hard at wk on the t-shi, the bumper sticker and the handshe. high...and five! i could use a little help from my cinnamon sisterhood. how are we going to pay for college? there e a lot of families wondering just that. according to a survey done 65% of parents admitted the recession has changed how they're planning to pay for college. there's more information in "today's" "usa today." a colle admissions expert and ceo of apply wise.com and a personal finance expert. so you conducted this survey and
9:36 am
there were some surprising results including parents now saying they're looking at selecting a school more by weather they can afford to pay for it, cost and finance as opposed to the school's reputation >> that's exactly right. so reputation is less important, though academics are still number one, tuition feesnd availability of financial aid are the big keys. and it's really important for families when they're putting together their college list for them to be balanced for them to have a financial and academic safety school on their li. >> and as high school seniors get ready now to start doing the application process, what should they and their parents now be doing to manage their kids' expectations especially in these tough economic times. >> firstf all they should have a franke chat with their kids and wre finding with the survey they are doi that, parents are sitting down and
9:37 am
talking about what they can afford to pay towards that college educationnd they should have that conversation early before those acceptance letters come out in april. >> i get into the college i want to, but we can't afford it. >> and have some of those safe schools on the list, as a backup school. >> a lot of americans, while they believe in the high value of education, 22% of parents polled a mitted to not having put any money aside forollege. that would be a huge problem. >> it's tremeously difficult to do that when one of the spouses have lost a job. the first thing you have to do is payhe bil that are most important "today" like keeping a roof over your head. go to fasfa, it's free, but you apply for federal government aid. more and more folks need that financial aid and it's ve, very important to do that and also to know whe you're going to put your money.
9:38 am
sallie mae also came out "today" and showed that more than half of parents areot putting their ney in 529s where the money can grow tax free, instead the majority of it is going to tax and savings account. so find out more information on 529s can be a little bit intimidating because there's a lot of factor to factor in. . >> i know from talking to you and listening to what you said on "today's" money 911, people thk oh, maybe i'll tap into my retirement fund. and you say that's a big no. >> it's putting your oxygen mask on first, you've got to take care of yourself first, ask your child, do you want to be taking care of me down the road? if you don pay attention to your own retirement, whether it's pulling equity out of your home or pulling money out of your retirement fund, your child's going to have to take care of you.
9:39 am
but also think about for them, their young adults gng into school and coming out, they have many, many more years to pay off the loans than you do. so make sure to take care of yourself first. and when you take out loans, take it out in their name. >> when you're looking at the cost of college, a lot of folks look at the cost of room and board, but there are a lot of other costs as well, right? >> many families are not thinking aboutudgeting for the cost of applying to college. and at a applywise we're finding thatarents are spending $3,000 just on applying to llege. it's really important to start saving early. >> are there other areas that they might not be looking at as far as hidden costs? >> almost over $3,000 you have already spent, so you've got to make sure you to sit down and talk withour child about their expectations, what a you going to pay for? what are they going to pay for?
9:40 am
and credit cards. credit is not evil in and of itself. it's a greatime to build your credit. but you have to co-sign or open a card joint with your parents. don't use your parents card, be responsible with your on card. >> it looks like the average senior comes out of college with $4,000 worth of credit card debt. >> especially when starting salaries are below $30,000. try to avoid a ton of debt, but if you get into it, use it responsibly and have a good credit score. >> how are the ways to cuthe cost of college? >> there are so many ways and families are looking at sending their kids to a community college for two years and then transferring into a four-year college. students can also take a gap year and work for a year and put that money towards your tuition. you can save at least 25% on tuition, room and board. and you can take ap classes and
9:41 am
