7:02 am
good morning welcome to today on this monday morning and it is a busy one. we want to start with some breaking news overnight. five explosive devices discovered in new jersey near a busy train station. this is just a day after a device exploded here in new york city and this morning, police are searching this building in elizabeth, new jersey. they say it is in connecti we have complete coverage beginning with nbc national correspondent miguel almaguer. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning to you. the fbi activity that you were talking about a short time ago was taken place just a mile away from where we are standing. investigators have been there for the past several hours. they're very interested in a local restaurant there. law enforcement officials tell nbc news they're concerned an active terror cell may be working in this area.
7:03 am
suspicious device in this neighborhood after two men say they came across a back pack, opened it up, and looked inside and thought they saw a bomb. that is when they notified authorities who cleared this area, including a local plane station. police moved in, then the explosion happened. the overnight blast sent shock waves through elizabeth, new jersey. police startled, the public rat the back packs suddenly exploding. hours later, heavily armed fbi agents arrived at this nearby home, officials say all part of the investigation. back at the crime scene, the mayor says the bomb squad accidently triggered the blast. >> it was not a controlled explosion. that occurred when they were cutting it in order to make it safe. >> reporter: just before 9:00 p.m. sunday, investigators say two men discovered the back pack in a trash can.
7:04 am
few hundred feet outside a neighborhood bar. police shut down the adjacent train station. suspending commuter traffic for hours a danger to the public soon became clear. only one of five devices exploded. thankfully, no one hurt, but the blast, powerful enough to kill. >> the loss of life could have been tremendous. >> the people who were doing this, they have no value on human life and it is difficult to understand their rational. >> shortly before the explosion, just ten miles away, investigators stopped a vehicle of interest near the verrazano bridge, five people were taken in for questioning in connection to the terror investigation. no charges have been filed yet. the blast in new jersey comes after a powerful explosion in manhattan injuring 29 saturday night.
7:05 am
seaside park, new jersey, a bomb went off before a 5k. they're concerned an active terror cell with multipliers could be at work in new york and new jersey. three explosions over the last 48 hours that could have all been deadly. >> investigators may be looking for similarities like a similar trigger shared between all police will step up their presence all across the city. matt and savannah, an hour away from here, the investigation, the heavy fbi presence continues at that residence so close by. back to you guys. >> thank you very much. >> several different scenes working here. now to the weekend explosion that rocked the manhattan neighborhood and what investigators are learning about that incident. richard engel is there. good morning. >> reporter: good morning
7:06 am
bombers on the loose in the new york tri-state area but the picture emerging, at least from the incidents this weekend is of a fairly amateurish attempt to carry out a coordinated attack that thankfully, mostly went wrong. security has been beefed up across new york this morning. with more dogs, more armed guards. 1,000 more state police at new york's bustling in response to the three bombs found or exploded over the weekend. the first one in a new jersey trash can saturday morning. two in manhattan that evening. >> everybody get off of the street. >> reporter: investigators are searching for connections and think they have found a key link. the detonators used for all three devices, city officials tell nbc news, were old style flip cell phones. the similarity suggests that the
7:07 am
responsible. but who and why? >> a bomb exploding in new york is obviously an act of terrorism, but it is not linked to international terrorism. >> we have a lot more work to do to be able to say what kind of motivation was behind this. >> reporter: the biggest explosion hit new york city at 8:30 saturday night on a crowded street with lots of and people screaming and people were scared out of their wits. >> reporter: that bomb blew up in or under a metal dumpster which appears to have contained much of the shrapnel. no one was killed. 29 were injured. all of them were treated and released. the second device in new york was found just a few blocks away. it looked like a pressure cooker bomb that didn't go off. new york city officials tell nbc news, they have video of someone
7:08 am
suitcase and that later, two people apparently innocently took the device out of the suitcase, didn't know what it was, left it, and walked off with the suitcase. and the bomb in the trash can in new jersey, it was timed to go off during a charity race to support u.s. marines but the race was delayed when the small pipe bomb partially exploded, harming no one, officials called the race off. >> okay. we need to shut down this run. shut down this run. speak t s >> reporter: in addition to those being questioned by the fbi, there was also apparently surveillance video that may show the same man at the two locations here in new york city where a bomb exploded and the other device was found. matt, savannah, back to you. >> richard engel at the scene. let's turn to justice correspondent pete williams. he has been working his sources. let's talk about the five people
7:09 am
officials confident or optimistic that they have somebody involved in this or at least connected to it? >> reporter: i would say agnostic about that. that is up in the air. the people captured near the bridge are being questioned. it was a combination of factors that led to the arrest including the surveillance video from the new york bombing scenes and the cell phones that were used as timers and power sources in the bomb. obviously the bombers thought the phones would be blown up but one of the devices in new york and the jersey did not go off. police and federal agents identified another man from the surveillance video, one they're actively searching for right now. >> and we're talking or we're hearing this morning about active terror cells operating in new jersey and new york. are law enforcement officials that you're talking about giving you any more information about what they may or may not know about that group? >> reporter: well, i think that is a developing picture.
7:10 am
best way to say it is they're following a lead. they have reasons that they're following the lead. the evidence from the phones, the evidence from the surveillance video, whether this is the actual cell, how many people are involved, we don't know. we do know, they tell us, that the devices found overnight in new jersey are similar to the device that was left in the trash can saturday in seaside park. there is that connection. and that device, in turn, has, 'r has similarities to the ones in new york, so this is moving really, very quickly. >> all right. pete, thank you very much. bill bratton is the former police commissioner for new york city. he retired on friday. we have shawn henry, former executive assistant at the fbi. he is now president of crowd strike. good morning to both of you. commissioner, you just left the job on friday. one presumes you're pretty plugged in. we're talking about four
7:11 am
they are indeed connected and what this would mean in terms of a potential terror attack on the city and this area. >> first, since 9/11, this is only the second successful attack. the first was the hatchet attack on the new york city police officer two years ago, the device that blew up on saturday night, 29 injuries, would have to be deemed a successful and they used the term terrorist is appropriate. we clearly indicate it was an act of terrorism. the law enforcement guys have a lot to work with. the devices did not go off. as a result, they have the ability to move forward very quickly. i think we'll see this come to a resolution quickly. >> as you left your post on friday, did your department have under surveillance an individual or individuals that you think they're going back and looking at now in connection with these attacks? >> i won't speak to that.
7:12 am
one in new jersey, they're working very closely now. what was thought to be two separate unrelated incidents, at this juncture, i think there is a strong belief that they are, in fact, connected. in terms of were the individuals involved in this on the radar, that is part of the investigation moving forward so i can't speak to that as you might expect, but again, my understanding and sense of this is that we'll see a lot of movement today on this matter. >> let's go to shawn henry. look at this. you can either say, all right, this was a botched attempt, something that went wrong, an attempted coordinated attempt. or disturbingly, consider it a dry run. we should mention, of course, this is the week that world leaders, including president president descend on this area. >> we had an explosion on saturday night in manhattan. clearly that wasn't dry. whether these events are
7:13 am
both of the joint terrorism forces in new york and new jersey will be working almost as one unit and they will be collecting and sharing intelligence across each of those organizations, specifically to identify that. i think when you look at this investigation going forward, savannah, the biggest concern is, there are people that are still out there. nypd, one of the greatest counter terrorism units in the world, the fbi working with the joint terrorism task force as the commissioner just said, there is a lot of evidence, terrorists explosive device analytic center, they'll be able to gather a lot of information from the devices. they've looked at hundreds of thousands of devices in the last 12 years or so. they will look for signatures and i absolutely believe that they will be able to gather intelligence that will be actionable and lead to some furtherance of this investigation savannah. >> let me go to commissioner or former commissioner bratton again. savannah mentioned the timing of
7:14 am
descended on new york. are you confident that enough is being done to secure this city during this very challenging week? >> sure. this is an event we have a lot of experience with over the last year, 18 months in new york city, we have beefed up our counter terrorism capabilities by an additional almost 1,300 officers. the governor has assigned additional personnel and the transportation areas. the event reenforces is what we've been saying. it is not a matter of if, it is just a matter of when. unfortunately, the reality of our world today is that these events are probably going to become common which is unfortunate. i point out that the second device was discovered by a woman who reported it. see something, say something. we cannot emphasize that enough. don't live in fear but you have
7:15 am
five pipe bombs discovered by two homeless people that went, saw the devices and immediately contacted officials. >> so important. former commissioner bill bratton. shawn henry in washington. thank you so much. in the wake of both of these incidents, both presidential candidates are now speaking out about national security with the election only 50 days away, here is the state of the race. hillary clinton is in philadelphia this morning speaking to young voters at temple university. with several world leaders at the united nations general assembly, including the president. >> donald trump also plans to sit down with the egyptian president. before that, he is holding a rally in florida. that is his third visit to the state in less than two weeks. let's bring in the national correspondent peter alexander at trump tower a few blocks from us. good morning to you. >> hey matt and savannah.
7:16 am
but the responses this weekend, really offering a real time point and counter point with hillary clinton and donald trump demonstrating very different strategies and styles on issues of national security. after the explosions, the sharp contrast from the candidate's responses. >> just before i got off the plane, a bomb went off in new york. >> donald trump quickly to react, even before new york city police had identified what happened. >> nobody knows exa going on, but boy, we are living in a time, we better get very tough. >> reporter: later toning his tweets. warmest regards, best wishes and condolences to their families. hillary clinton's initial response more measured. >> i think it is always wiser to wait until you have information before making conclusions.
7:17 am
-- condemning the apparent terror attacks. the nation remains bitterly divided. many thinking clinton would be a better commander-in-chief but trump is more trusts in terror. he is fighting off criticism from robert gates, the former defense secretary under president obama and bush. in an op ad, saying clinton would a drels her trust worthiness with voters beyond repair and unfit to be commander-in-chief. >> believe me, i'm so much better at what he is doing than he is. >> as trump tries to bury five years of birtherism, he is facing fall out. >> how and will will donald trump conclude that the president was born in the united states. >> you'll have to ask him. >> and claims of lacking enthusiasm, president obama is
7:18 am
>> i will consider it a personal insult, an insult to my legacy if this community let's down its guard and fails to activate itself in this election. you want to give me a good send off? go vote. >> as president obama tries to unify democrats, there are new rifts this morning among republicans. the the rnc chairman reince priebus this morning saying it is time for donald trump's former primary opponent to come on board and have trouble ahead of them in future elections if they don't. ted cruz, jeb bush, john kasich have all yet to endorse trump. >> thank you very much. back this morning and all of the correspondents in the new york area have given a weather report. it is raining. >> it is and up and down the east coast. we really do need this rain. some areas in extreme drought throughout the northeast. new england to charlotte, you're

7:29 am
7:30 am
we're back. it is 7:30. monday morning, the 19th of september. we have breaking news just in about the bombings that went in in new york over the weekend. 29 people injured and several other attempted bombings it following this story and he has some more things to report to us. pete, good morning to you. >> reporter: matt, savannah. as we said earlier, the police are searching for one man in particular and now they have publicly identified him as a 28-year-old elizabeth, new jersey man. ahmed khan rahami. he was born january 1st of 1988. the new york police department has just put out a tweet. we had heard this name earlier
7:31 am
public. now, as we understand it, he is the key to this investigation that the group that was stopped on the verrazano bridge is members of his family. that is the connection there, and they believe that this is the man that can be seen in surveillance videos at both of the bombing locations in new york on saturday evening in chelsea, both on 23rd and 27th streets. so he, they believe, is the key to th. we're told it is a combination of things. it was both the videos which were a telling thing but also the cell phones that were used as the power sources and the timers in, they believe, all three devices. the one on 23rd street blew up and obliterated the cell phone but the device on 27th street, the pressure cooker and the device left in new jersey on saturday in seaside park did not completely blow up so they were
7:32 am
look at numbers called, so a combination of evidence, we're told, has led them to him and there is a very active search for him right now. they simply described him as being sought in connection with the chelsea bombing. that is all they're saying at this point, but it is obviously, they feel, so urgent to find him that they decided to make this public after a family home in new jersey and questioning family members, we're told, stopped on the verrazano bridge overnight. >> to make clear, when you say he can be seen in the two different locations, 23rd and 27th street on the surveillance video, in one of those images, is it true that he is seen actually wheeling a duffel bag down the street that we now know contained the pressure cooker bomb? >> yes, our understanding is that the pressure cooker was brought in a suitcase that was left on the street and then as
7:33 am
thought hey, this is a nice suitcase. i'm going to take it for myself. reached inside, took out the white garbage bag that contained the pressure cooker bomb, unaware of a parentally what they had. put it on the street and walked away with the suitcase. >> and pete, we had learned this morning about questioning going in the house in new jersey. we heard about people being stopped and questioned, stopped on the verrazano bridge here. does that bear any connection to your knowledge individual police are now seeking. >> my understanding that it was 100 % connected to him. the location in new jersey being searched is the rahami family home and my understanding is that the people stopped on the verrazano narrow bridge are members of his family. that is the best information that we have at this point. in other words, he is key to a lot of this investigative activity. now, independently, the explosive devices near the commuter train place in
7:34 am
isn't clear to us whether that was additional bombs somebody was planting. you are seeing one that went off when the robot was trying to disable it in the group. whether this was somebody trying to pitch a bunch of stuff and get rid of it or another bomb that was planted. we don't know the answer to that. >> pete williams on this. obviously a lot of developments. we'll keep tabs on those throughout the morning. pete, thank you very much. let's go to nbc's tom costello following the investigation including the jersey overnight. tom, good morning to you. >> good morning, this location i'm at is critical because this is the location saturday fwliegt they found the unexploded pressure cooker bomb that pete was just mentioning, they believe the suspect was right in the middle of the street and then somebody took the bomb out of the suitcase. the bomb ended upright here. they're also looking at very close similarities between these bombs discovered and links or rather similarities i should say
7:35 am
overnight, another explosion in new jersey after a police robot examined a back pack that appeared to contain pipe bombs left near a train station. the incident coming as investigators were looking into similarities between this weekend's bombings and attempted bombings in new jersey and new york. the best clues for the nypd were left right in the middle of the street saturday night. an unexploded homemade pressure cooker fashioned flip phone attached to the top. they're examining video of somebody rolling it down the street inside a suitcase before walking away. likely, the same type of bomb that went off just a few blocks away, injuring 29, and another that went off in a trash can in new jersey. all three bearing similarities, say experts, to the pressure cooker bombs that went off at the boston marathon in 2013, killing three and injuring 264. but for the nypd, the unexploded
7:36 am
bombers have left behind a gold mine of evidence. finger prints, wires, soldering, the phones and numbers dialled and received. >> i would want to be trying to track the bomb components back to the purchase place to where the cell phones were bought or any of the bomb components or any of the explosive materials. track it back as fast as i can. i want to accelerate because the bombers are loose. >> reporter: the fwhoom did go off shatt -- the bomb that did go off sent shrapnel. one struck in the arm with metal, the other bleeding heavily. >> we'll find whoever did this or whatever group did this and they will be brought to justice. >> reporter: explosive experts say the bomb design is similar to the one al qaeda provides would be terrorists in the online magazine. they stress there is no known link to international terrorism. this morning, with world leaders gathering in new york for the u.n. general assembly, the city
7:37 am
tighter security blanket. more than 1,000 extra officers and national guard troops are on duty. >> it is very scary. >> nerve wracking but you have to go about your business. >> even with the fbi questioning five people this morning after authorities stopped a vehicle of interest crossing the bridge heading into new york, the concern, at least one bomber and maybe more are still on the loose. >> the bomber is not experienced. they're early in the bomb career but they have a lot of desire to to kill as of yet. >> reporter: we're back now on 27th street where they found that unexploded bomb. that piece of evidence, along with all of the shrapnel and everything collect allied at the other scenes has been sent to the fbi lab in quantico, virginia, for a thorough analysis. they're looking for one suspect at least. back to you. >> a lot of evidence to work within this case. thank you very much. let's get a check of the

7:45 am
happened to them. still we haven't been able to do anything about it. >> there are those who would say isis doesn't need to be brought to court. isis needs to be bombed out of existence. >> it's not enough. you can't kill an idea that way. i think one of the ways to take action against that is to expose their brutality and their corruption and partly you can do that through trials. >> reporter: in the refugee camps in greece, survivors tell them how much they want to confront their isis abusers and gi nadia has become their voice. >> they all said things like, "she is the future," "she is our only hope." >> reporter: nadia is a yazidi, a religious minority from iraq. a u.n. report says isis has killed more than 5,000 yazidis and 3,200 are still captive. >> translator: they killed all
7:46 am
we didn't even get a chance to say good-bye. >> reporter: nadia herself was sold as a sex slave to an isis commander. >> she has said they abused me to a time until i fell unconscious. she was burnt with cigarettes. she just endured the most brutal acts known to humanity. >> we know that even in the last few days you've received new threats from isis. >> translator: yes. i put my own life at risk but i don't have a life without giving >> you put your life at risk as well. >> i don't think anyone can feel they're being courageous compared to what nadia is doing. it is no joke, this is isis, and they have sent her really specific threats saying we'll get you back. this is a direct quote. "we'll do everything to you." >> and what about you? how did you make this decision? >> she made me make the decision because i met her and i just thought i can't walk away from this. >> you brought her home, i understand. >> yes.
7:47 am
of hours and just spoke about it. >> and from then on you knew you were going to do this. >> yeah. >> no matter the price. it's not just you. it is your family. >> you know, this is something i discuss with my husband before i would take on something like this. we did discuss it and we are aware of some of the risks involved, of course. he met nadia, too. i think he was moved for the same reas >> reporter: she hopes that nadia's being named by a goodwill ambassador by the u.n., a turning point. >> nadia's our mother, she's our sister, she's our voice, she's our hope. it is a great responsibility. but i think what she's doing is amazing. >> in her new role, nadia has been asked to address the u.n.'s
7:48 am
meanwhile, clooney tells me that while she is usually -- usually hard case to prove, genocide is easy in this case because isis admits what they're doing and they do intend to wipe out the yazidi people. >> she's -- both of them are incredibly impressive. >> takes a lot of courage to do this. >> it does and really shines a light on something that might otherwise not get that attention. cynthia, thank you. cynthia, thank you. you have a lot more of y ladies, why just dream of worry-free nights? i'm linda, and like millions of women worldwide i trust tena. and with new tena overnight underwear i can now sleep worry free all night. the unique secure barrier system gives me triple protection from leaks, odor and moisture so i can keep being a sweet dreamer. tena overnight underwear and pads.

official say information from cell phones taken from the unexploded pressure cooker bomb on 27th street in new york, and from the partially exploded bomb left saturday in new jersey also played a role in identifying him. his family home was searched overnight in new jersey, and members of his family were stopped and questioned. but it is not known this morning whether officials believe he was the only one involved in the weekend bombings or whether they think he had help. that's to be determined. >> pete, let m was he known to officials, rahami? was he on the radar at all? >> not that we have he a heard, no. i've not heard that he was. but if you step back for a second, thisard, no. i've not heard that he was. but if you step back for a second, this has moved remarkably fast. these bombs happened over the weekend and they already have a person of interest here. >> alerts going on off cell

>> some conflicting information. first a prominent business woman in the uk has landed herself in a little bit of hot water by saying people do not want to see a tattooed arm washing their hair or in a restaurant serving them food. it's not hygienic. but those comments directly contradict the findings of a new study that suggests that tattoos can actually be an advantage in certain industries because they help a business convey a positive or individual image and lure in more young customers. said. >> it is location. >> and the kind of business. >> but some of the top chefs in the country have sleeve tattoos all over their arms. >> exactly. if you go to the piercing place, you want the person to have a bunch of tattoos. i got a double pierce. everybody had a tattoo there. staying on the subject of job interviews. question -- now we know, matt, you don't love small talk. not your favorite thing. >> don't love it. >> it does seem like a throw-away in conversation. but guess what? it is really important in a job
8:15 am
researchers at harvard found that bad small talk actually can negatively impact your chances of landing the job with interviewers picking up on so-called job-relevant attributes in just those few minutes of chitchat. this i believe is from my favorite medical journal. "duh." >> what's your personality, how do you get along. >> it shows if you connect with someone. no matter what you are talking about, you know if you have juice right ay tattoos. >> i don't mind small talk, i mind repetitive small talk at a cocktail party, the same small talk from person to person. >> i would say you excel at small talk. >> in small doses. now to shove the shoe being called the worst ever created. the result of a partnership. it's half boot, half sandal.

8:21 am
we put some of the most popular diet and fitness trends to the test. kerry sanders is here to get us started. >> good morning. this is a story about losing weight and celebrities like hugh jackman, jennifer lopez and jimmy kimmel have all reportedly tried intermittent fasting diets, books touting the benefits have become best sellers. but are diet plans like these really realistic for the average person to follow? i tried three different versions, all with the help of "today" nutritionist, joy bauer, who reviewed the rules a created menus to help me stay on course. three weeks. photos of every meal i ate. but before we examined the rules of the intermittent fasting diets i followed, a visit with wellness expert dr. denise edwards at the university of south florida. >> you don't have that much weight to lose. >> i love you. >> reporter: week one. the 5:2 diet, eating normally for five days out of the week, fasting for two days.
8:22 am
>> so it's day one of the "only 600 calories," 300 calories each meal. >> reporter: my diet began on a day when i joined friends at a party. >> there's fried chicken. there's more fried chicken. and i get the idea that none of this is going to qualify for 300 calories. >> reporter: but it wasn't just parties that posed a challenge. >> well, good morning. >> reporter: i'm on the road 200 days a year. which means lots of restaurants. on the menu here are eggs benedict, design your own omelet. ham and cheese. all the sort of things that joy says i should not eat. >> reporter: what i could eat based on the diet's criteria -- "today's" nutritionist joy bauer created a meal plan. two hard boiled eggs, slice of tomato and a cup of berries. later on the day on a run at the airport in charlotte --
8:23 am
tacos. tacos. i want to eat a taco. >> i haven't had much to eat. while i haven't been hangry yet, i'm beginning to get a little upset. this is not fun. >> reporter: my 300-calorie meal -- bland broccoli and just a portion of the meat. >> piece of chicken that fits in the palm of my hand. >> reporter: but in the first week i lost -- three pounds. week two, alternate days i ate normally one day, the next day, eating fewer than 600 calories on those days. one of those days i was covering breaking news in milwaukee. my 300 calorie meal -- peanut butter on a rice cake with a banana and a cup of plain greek yogurt. >> it's peanut butter on styrofoam. >> reporter: different day, same meal but a problem as i headed to another city. >> tsa just informed me that this is a liquid and i can't
8:24 am
race cakes and make my smeared rice cake -- which apparently tsa will allow to go through security. >> reporter: it was during week two, weakness in between assignments. >> and i know that there is a piece of pizza in here. >> reporter: but with a video diary on my every move, will power kicked in. >> i will resist. all temptations not to ea really works. but trust me, i'm hungry. >> reporter: at the end of week two, total weight loss -- six and a half pounds. week three -- time-restrictive. eat only within an eight-hour period between noon and 8:00 p.m. >> that's my until noon meal. >> reporter: there was, of course, some tormenting from the team i work with. but at the end of the three
8:25 am
pounds. >> well, yippy for me. my doctor says what you can't see is what she discovered in the blood and that is lower blood sugar levels. >> he likes amazing. >> give me the pros and cons. >> and there are both. in terms of the pros, you reduced your calories, therefore you lost weight. that's going to happen with any calorie controlled plan. also, kerry was much more mindful of eating. i only gave him small little meals on fasting days so you really experienced your food. you slowed down your chewing. yo and, also, i think it fuels healthier eating because i designed the meals for him so he wasn't eating 600 calories of hot dogs and cookies. >> quickly, the cons. >> there are definite cons. first off, a lot of people end up bingeing on the non-fasting days because you are so proud of yourself. weight loss is not going to

8:34 am
pregnant. >> this is actually a very important question. because previously we would say you shouldn't exercise during pregnancy. but we want you to exercise during pregnancy, but before you start, talk to your health care provider because there are adjustments you need to make, whether it's with the cardiovascular system or your joints. we want you to get through your pregnancy happy and healthy. it also helps to decrease that post-partum weight. >> pregnancy not ae when is it okay to bleach or dye your hair? >> this is a biggie. women, if you think about it, nine months they're like can i do my hair or not? we want women to know that they can do hair treatments. when we think about the chemicals that they are exposed to, they're really not that toxic. there's also that assumption people think it is absorbed by the blood stream. it's not. you can use semi-permanent dyes or henna. or best case scenario, if you're
8:35 am
hair treatments during pregnancy or wait until after the first trimester, which is the first 12 to 13 weeks. >> okay. here here's a big one. when is it okay to have a glass of wine? >> as a health care provider we generally recommend do not take any alcohol during the pregnancy. the reason is we know there is fetal alcohol syndrome which is the most preventable form of mental retardation. if you don't want any risk at all, don't put yourself at women do metabolize alcohol differently. >> we don't know how much would cause fetal alcohol syndrome. >> absolutely. >> when is it okay to take pain medicine and what kind? >> yes. so pain obviously during pregnancy can become an issue. we want to know as a health care provider is it pain that started before? did you have a history of
8:36 am
pregnancy. if it is new and you are masking that pain, that may hide some diseases or conditions during pregnancy. mild pain, we usually recommend for you to take acetaminophen and not ibuprofen because we don't want to affect the baby's kidneys, the amniotic fluid levels. if you are taking narcotics, make sure you do that under the guidance of your health care provider. >> that's some strong stuff. >> can be. >> finally, the question of all -- when i to the hospital to have this baby? >> this was your question. you were like when can i go to the hospital. some of the key factors as you get towards that time when you are 40 weeks, which is, again, term, obviously if tu break your bag of water which is a sudden gush of fluid. or maybe sometimes a constant trickle, then go to the hospital and be evaluated. fetal movement. if you find the baby is not moving as much as you like, then you really want to pay close attention to it.
8:37 am
issue, talk to your health care provider. bleeding is also a big factor that we want to make sure you aren't bleeding too much. coming close to the end of pregnancy you may have a little bit of spotting. but heavy bleeding, weep want to make sure there is no placental issues. and contractions. five minutes apart or less. >> when in doubt, call the doctor. thank you, ddoctor. next, nick jonas and the rave reviews from his n everyone loves a great story. whether it's classics we grew up with, or the ones handed down through history. but what about the comeback stories. where what's new meets what's next,

8:40 am
>> i know. >> come on. >> nick, good morning. good to see you. >> good to see you. >> this is not "animal house 2016." this is not a comedy at all. this has a lot of dark elements in it. why did you want to do this? >> i think the first thing that stood out to me was the relationship between the brothers. >> the biological brothers? >> yeah. brad and brett. this is based off bra memoir. just an amazing story about masculiity and what that looks like today and his journey through fraternity culture and his experience with hazing which really got out of hand. i knew the role would challenge me and make me grow. >> you mentioned hazing. you don't think this is an indictment on the fraternity culture in general, but you do want this movie to shine a light on one particular aspect of that. >> yeah. i think that all of us were really conscious of making sure
8:41 am
