your chances of success and resisting will be much greater if you wait that 20 minutes. >> how successful are people at waiting 20 minutes? >> it depends. some people are very good at it, others not so good at it. but it's something people can practice. >> you also talk about probiotics. you think this is worth making a resolution for. >> absolutely. we have a lot of data showing the connection between gast gastrointestinal health and brain health. your gastrointestinal track and spinal cord are formed from the same tissue when you're a fetus developing. there's a real connection between the two. so what you want to do, obviously you want to avoid sugar and processed foods, but taking probiotics which are these healthy bacteria, we know that will help improve the functioning of your cast gastrointestinal track, which

carry-on. according to her father, a swab from her bag came back with a false positive reading. >> it's not broken. it's not clearing. >> the pat-down seemed to have been a go-to option for them and they could have done a better scrutiny of what they were looking for prior to putting their hands all over my 10-year-old daughter. >> the issue over whether children should receive pat-downs is controversial. according to tsa protocols, officers will work with parents to resolve any alarms at the checkpoint and has modified screening procedures for children 12 and under that reduce the likelihood of pat-down screening. in a statement to nbc news, the tsa says tsa screening procedures allow for the pat-down of a child under certain circumstances. the process by which the child was patted down followed approved procedures. the tsa also points out that the process was observed by the child's parent and there was a cell phone with an alarm going off in the child's bag requiring additional resolution procedures.
as for the paynes, they understand the importance of airline security, but when it comes to kids, there has to be a better way. >> maybe they need retraining. maybe they did everything by the book. i don't really know, but it was, you know, an uncomfortable situation. >> that was natalie morales reporting. the next time you book a flight there's a good chance it will cost more than it did the last time. according to jp morgan chase several airlines raised fares this week. prices went up by an average of $6 a trip. let's check on our weather with lauryn. >> you know, if you're flying anywhere today, it's looking beautiful. within 400 plus miles of the d.c. area, all good up and down the east coast. maybe a little rain on the eastern side of florida. definitely not here. we have bright blue skies, plenty of sunshine outside the live camera tower.
current temperatures now in the 30s around that freezing mark. we are warming up to right around 40 degrees. it is going to be chilly, but at least we have the sunshine, so try to find those sunglasses. as we continue to the evening, a few more clouds building in which will help our temperatures from dropping too far too fast. we're warming up tomorrow and into the weekend. that forecast coming up. a court case could be coming between ryan zimmerman and al jazeera america. the nats first baseman sued al jazeera for defamation following a documentary that linked him to human growth hormones. zimmerman's attorney says he has never taken performance-enhancing drugs. ryan howard filed a similar lawsuit as well. because both players are public figures, they have to prove al jazeera acted with malice or disregard of the truth. a new group of baseball players will make it to the hall of fame today. 32 players are on the hall of

we'll be looking at rain chances starting on friday night, continuing really for much of the weekend. also, you know, as we get into really the redskins and green bay packers game, hopefully that rain can be out of here. if you're traveling today for more than 400 miles, looking good. exercising, wear that winter gear out and about. you will need that rain jacket this weekend. we'll talk about that seven-day in a few minutes. we're back with dr. joshua weiner with more resolutions to improve your mental health and relationships in the new year. we talked about a couple things earlier, the 20-minute rule, the pro biotics. you tell us we should stop comparing ourselves to others. what do you mean by that. >> this is a big one in the digital age with facebook. all these people seem to be having better, ham pi happierer
better children, you cannot compare your internal world to somebody's external world. people are always trying to put their best face forward for the public, internally it may not match at all what they're showing externally. when you start getting down on yourself, give yourself a break, don'ten jud be judgmental of yo and recognize you never know what's fully going on with other people. >> what about this one? only offer advice when asked for advice. some people walk around giving out advice no matter what. >> yes, i don't think that's a good thing. very few people like getting unsolicited advice. so the one thing i suggest for people, whether you're dealing with your spouse, or your kids, they come home from school or work, they're upset about something, instead of immediately feeling like you have to fix the problem and give them advice, you should make your goal just understanding, just making sure that person
feels heard and understood, repeat back to them what they've told you so they know you've been listening. what i'll do with my kids, after they tell me something upsetting to them, look, do you want my advice or do you want to tell me what happened? more often than not they'll say i wanted to tell you. i don't want you to tell me anything. i wanted you to listen. feel free to ask that question. do you want my advice or not? >> that's a good thing to remember. good resolutions. >> i hope so. >> thanks a lot. >> you're welcome. after the break, new information on two developing stories, north korea's test of a hydrogen bomb and a standoff at
developing now, chipolte is being told to testify before a federal grand jury. the chain received a subpoena as a grand jury investigating a neurovirus outbreak at a restaurant in california last year. we're waiting to see whether the house will vote to repeal the president's signature healthcare law. there's been dozens of previous votes at undoing the health law. today could be the first time a full repeal makes it to the president's desk. he would veto it. we're tracking the latest on a possible international threat. north korea claims that it has detonated its first hydrogen bomb. this would mark a significant and dangerous advance for north korea's military if it's true.
>> reporter: a north korean tv announcer announces the first hydrogen bomb test and announces it is a success. we won't stop because of what she calls american aggression. they cheered in north korea's capital. they have seen three previous tests announced but never of an h-bomb, a far more powerful weapon. the u.s. is waiting to invade our country, this man says, so it's the right thing to do. the hydrogen bomb, he says, is a reliable way of defending ourselves. the tremors from the underground explosions were felt in china and in south korea where officials say it's a provocation. north korea's leader kim jong-un knows that and signed the test order anyway. japan, too, is alarmed. military planes taking off to test air samples. the u.s. ambassador meeting to reassure a government that says the test is a serious threat. >> we stand with japan and our
partners and allies in solidarity with this north korea provocation. >> reporter: north korea's leader is consolidating his power and flexing his muscle at a world that is looking at north korea with real anxiety. and it may take weeks to work out if this was a hydrogen bomb, and if it was successful and a viable device, but anything that can produce a seismic shock of 5.1 is dangerous, and there will be consequences for north korea. the u.n. will meet later and may move towards tighter sanctions, but kim jong-un is unlikely to be deterred by that. back to you. >> in germany, a security scare. police sealedíñ off german chancellor angela merkel's office this morning. they were investigating several suspicious yellow boxes there. merkel ignored the alert and held a cabinet meeting inside the building any way. to that developing story in
oregon where the occupation of a wildlife refuge enters its fifth day. tonight the county sheriff will hold a meeting to answer questions from concerned residents. the occupiers say they will leave if residents want them to, but they believe they are standing up to bad laws. should missing more than 20% of a school day count as a tardy instead of an absence? yesterday d.c. down until approved a temporary extension of a proposal. that measure reverses the 80/20 rule which says high school students are considered ab cents if they miss more than 20% of a day. that would reduce the number of students categorized as student meaning fewer would be referred to court. visitors to the national mall may see an empty reflecting pool over the next couple months. the national park service plans to start draining the pool on friday.
right now the final preparations are underway for the technology show of this year's las vegas show. ces is a global consumer electronics show that takes place every january. steve greenberg is at the show. we talked to him on skype a few minutes ago to look at the cool gadgets. i'm here on the floor of ces, the doors haven't opened yet. 15 miles of aisles. a few products i can show you. for example, right over here is called smart wheel. this is invented by a teen. it goes on the steering wheel of a car. you put your hands on it, it can tell if your hands are off or on, it sends a message to your parents letting them know you're texting and not driving

it's a 9 volt battery with a chip built into it. the idea is that you can put this into your smoke detector, and it can turn ordinary smoke detectors into a connected one. this will keep monitoring the smoke detector f it goes off it will send a message through the internet to your smartphone. it is a great example of retrofitting your existing technology can roost. really cool. a lot of things down here. hopefully i'll break more back to the station in a few weeks. take care, back to you. >> i'll be looking forward to seeing that. >> he always brings fun stuff. that exhibit is insane. some of the advancements to make our lives easier. we'll be able do
