bruce leshan is at camp david where the top world leaders are meeting with president obama for the g-8 summit. so let's go to bruce to get a live report. >> reporter: hey jc. we're close to camp david. but we're actually in the city of frederick in baker park. and this is where some of the protests are expected to take place later this afternoon into this evening. and all day on saturday. but remarkably quiet here right now. just people out walking their dogs. and so forth. the cops are prepared for big protests here in the city of frederick and up this thurmont but at this point it's -- incredibly quiet.
there are about 20 people gathered at the public library having a g-8 peoples' summit. and they're talking about economic issues just as the world leaders will be talking ability. the argument on the part of the protestors is that poor peeve people have suffered enough -- people have suffered enough. enough austerity, time for some stimulus and time for a whole new international economic order. now most of the real serious protests were more likely take place in chicago where they're going to have that nato summit there. there they are preparing for the possibility of what they called the black bloc anarchists who sometimes wreak destruction in cities and so forth. but no sign of that here now. but a big turnout of police and preparations and they say it's costing them a fortune. they want the federal government to reimburse them for some of that. jc? >> all right, bruce leshan reporting live, thank you very much bruce. a peaceful gay pride march turned violent in the country

hello. i'm andrea roane. i'll be talking to jc in just a minute about the breast cancer recovery but you may remember when she first afounded the ground swell of sportive she received from the -- support she received from the community. that's a new initiative being launched at howard university cancer center. it's called women of promise. the project is funded over the next two years by a $200,000 grant from komen.
>> sylvia jones? >> the target group is women ages 20 to 74. with an aggressive outreach to those living in d.c. wards 7 and 8. >> we're especially looking for those women who have not had a screening in the past two years. >> the project director dr. williams says volunteer ambassadors will be buddies to at least two of their peers. they'll encourage and support them in getting a mammogram and educate them about early detection as a healthy choice for life. >> we see that d.c. really still experiences a lot of cancer health disparities especially with breast cancer. so for example a woman living in ward 5 or ward 8 is twice as likely to die from breast cancer compared to someone living in ward 3. so because of that we figured that one of the best ways to reach women was with other women who they already know and trust. >> women of promise hopes to reach more than 2,000 women. having at least 70% of them actually getting a mammogram will be a clear measure of
success. >> and that's really a tall order because women often times even if we reach them with information they don't make that transition to care. so that's really our beverage mark. how many people are we getting to actually get that screening? >> and howard is jc's alma mater and you were a woman ambassador and you didn't open know it because ever since you made the diagnosis you've been encouraging women to take charge of their health. early detection and screening and mammograms. >> so important. >> how is she doing? >> what has happened? i have the test. it's onxa type dx. it studies 15 queens and what it does is it determines your percentage of whether the cancer will return. and the number is from 0 to 100. my number was 15 so it was good and what that did was number one it said i didn't have to have chemotherapy. that's good. and number two, that my chances
of having the cancer return was going to be less than 20%. so i'm real happy about that. >> that's really encouraging. >> the only thing about this is this test is very expensive and a lot of insurance companies don't approve of it. >> not all women get it because it's specifically for your type of cancer which was the invasive duckal carcinoma and primarily for women who are postmenopausal. >> you had to put that in didn't you? postmenopausal? >> aside from being expensive there are specific parameters. so that's good news. that means though you still will have to have radiation? >> i will have radiation. i will start that -- i will start that. my doctor, victoria cruz is about this size. she looks like she's in junior high school. at sick lee hospital. she told me that i only needed four weeks of radiation. and guess what i told her?
bring it on. uh-huh. i want all my radiation. i want six weeks. she said okay. all right. so i'll have six weeks of radiation. >> well, we're glad to know because everywhere i go people want to know how you are. all shades of pink. present this to you. >> this is lovely. >> this is from denise whalen white the founder and executive director. sometimes the rooms are so cold she wants you to have this to wrap yourself in warmth and love from the community watching you and loving you all these years. >> i will have my own plan key. >> all of our prayers and good wishes still. >> you notice my bling? i figured you got to have breast cancer you node some new bling. that's my bling. thank you. >> we'll keep updating so stay tuned right? >> thank you. let's go to howard and get another look at the weather forecast. >> thank you very much. a gorgeous day out there right now and it's going to stay that way all day. our day planner, sunny
confidentable. boy -- comfortable. boy that felt good. mid 70s here this afternoon. some spots south and west of town may get 77. 78. i think we're going to make 76. 71 by 7:00 and then 67 at 9:00. we're back in the 50s tonight and even a few upper 40s. couple of big things going on this weekend. one of them the orioles in town, first pitch tonight should be good. drop into the middle 60s to the 7th, 8th inning. and the big air show over at andrews the joint service open house and air show today is great. well tomorrow, 78 degrees, sunday could be a few more clouds creeping in here: slight chance soft a shower late but i really think it's going to hold off until monday the way things are lookingment here's the satellite and radar. some high clouds are out there. i mean it's a great day but we've seen the high thin cirrus clouds with a load start. down to 41 in frederick and martinsburg and win chest they are morning. look at the difference with the city and the country. 55 at national.
the water also the bay. keeps annapolis and the patuxent river naval air station in the mid 50s. but manassas, culpeper, mid 40s for the lows even the air park in montgomery county and right now it's a nice one out there. 68 leesburg but 70 across much of the shenandoah valley. the naval academy. southern maryland is in the low 70s and here at washington at this time as we look outside on the michael & son weather camera, mostly sunny skies. there's a couple of those high cirrus coming across but no problems. 72 degrees. they're reporting mostly cloudy but these are the high thin overcast so i know it says mostly cloudy. it's mostly sunny with an east wind at 8 miles an hour and nice dry air in place. got several areas of storms across the country. out at salt lake city up in montana and up in the lakes but it's this storm system offshore after the carolinas, doesn't look like it's moving much now. and in the next day or so not really going to move that much because of high pressure you have to new york and new england. that's going to block it for
today tonight and tomorrow. but as we get into sunday, we start to see signs that this stuff wants to move back toward the west. so here we go through tonight tomorrow morning 6:00 a.m. it's all quiet. nothing's coming at us from the west even though some showers and storms popup in tennessee and the mississippi valley. it's going to be by sunday that we start no see this moisture move west and it might be a little further north. the weekend turns out all right and i think we're going to be in pretty good shape. today 76. 40s and 50s tonight. 78 tomorrow. pleasant on sunday. 80. maybe a shower south and east late in the day or at night. better chance of showers by monday. 77 and a little unsettled tuesday through thursday. highs around 80. smells great in here. we are going to the kitchen when 9news now at noon returns. if you have copd like i do,
you know how hard it can be to breathe and what that feels like. copd includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema. spiriva helps control my copd symptoms by keeping my airways open a full 24 hours. plus, it reduces copd flare-ups. spiriva is the only once-daily inhaled copd maintenance treatment that does both. and it's steroid-free. spiriva does not replace fast-acting inhalers for sudden symptoms. tell your doctor if you have kidney problems, glaucoma, trouble urinating, or an enlarged prostate. these may worsen with spiriva. discuss all medicines you take, even eye drops. stop taking spiriva and seek immediate medical help if your breathing suddenly worsens, your throat or tongue swells, you get hives, vision changes or eye pain, or problems passing urine. other side effects include dry mouth and constipation. nothing can reverse copd. spiriva helps me breathe better. does breathing with copd weigh you down? ask your doctor if spiriva can help.
