the first something is just fundamentally broken when african americans are more likely to be arrested by police, and sentenced to longer prison terms, for doing the same thing that whites do. ...when too many encounters with law enforcement end tragically. we need investments in education,

myra: a recent survey shows the average person in this country will spend more than $142
on candy, flowers, and more for valentine's day. as our guest tells us we do not hesitate get the about the chocolate. -- we do not have to feel guilty about the chocolate. let's welcome meg miller, registered dietitian with the greenville health system. meg: chocolate can be good for you. myra: there are some health benefits you wanted to share with us. meg: studies show chocolate have antioxidants that help to reduce the risk of heart disease or cardiovascular disease.
one ounce of chocolate everyday actually are thinner and maintain weight better than those who do not. myra: we do have to be aware that chocolate is a dense food. meg: calorie dense, not necessarily nutrient dense so it can behind and sugar so we want to watch the type of chocolate we are looking for and limit it to about one ounce per day. myra: there are ways we can incorporate chocolate in our diet. what is the skinny on chocolate? meg: go for a dark chocolate. we want to look for one that is at least 60% chocolate. i have one from trader joe's that is 72%. the alkalis -- the alkalis asian -- the process reduces antioxidant content. it makes it less bitter and
in cooking a could be more helpful in cooking but you are taking out some of the health benefits. myra: limiting it to one ounce per day. meg: we are talking that much. when it is dark chocolate it is going to be rich and that one ounce is going to hit the sweet tooth and be good. myra: i take your word for it. we want to avoid some types. meg: stuff like milk chocolate, white chocolate that has a very low cacao content so it will not have health benefits of chocolate. chocolate syrup, hot chocolate, anything that is super sweet and really creamy is probably going to be minimal actual healthy stuff in it. myra: you have a demonstration. meg: i made some chocolate covered strawberries, stuff you can get in the store.
that in our double boiler. one big pan and smaller pan so that way the chocolate won't earn. -- won't burn. for a pound of strawberries you use two of these bars. three teaspoons of coconut oil so instead of hydrogenated oil, which is not good for your heart, we can use a healthier oil. once that is melted, it is easy to dip your strawberriri in it and placed them on the plate. whatever you want to put on top to give it extra health. i have some chia seeds, chopped up walnuts or even some hemp seeds. a great way to make your strawberries crunchy and give them another health burst. another great way to add chocolate into your life is to
we have taken nonfat yogurt and mixed it with sugar-free pudding mix and melted chocolate with milk. we blended that together let it sit for two hours and i'm going to take some plain-vanilla nonfat yogurt and our favorite fruit to make it delicious and beautiful. myra: you even made your own chocolate bar. you can take a plane chocolole bar and dress it up by adding chia seeds, the raw hemp seeds, chopped walnuts, not that chocolate. -- melt that chocolate. i use a bread pan and mine is flexible so it is easy to knock that chocolate bar out. once it is set i end up with this beautiful chocolate bar.
it will give me some fiber and omega-3 fatty acids so you are doing your heart some good. myra: always nice to see you and happy valentine's day. chris: we have got a frigid weekend on the way. the view from our spartanburg skycam. it is going to be cold. 30 degrees right now but a stiff westerly breeze at 20 miles per hour. the wind bringing in a few snow showers to the north carolina mountains. a few flurries as far south as henderson. a wind chill advisory until noon. in asheville it feels like 7. it feels like 18 in spartanburg. it is going to be frigid today.
31 in anderson. we will see some sunshine today but it will not do much to warm us up. middle to upper 30's by this afternoon. in asheville you will struggle to get out of the teens. frigid all around town. look for temperatures to be the coldest in the mountains. 27 in hendersonville. 37 in greenville in spartanburg. that sets the stage for a winter storm on monday. it's going to be low impact south of i-85. north of i-85 from travelers rest to taylor's back toward spartanburg, portions of cherokee county and back toward pickens and oconee county, impacts of ice and snow and eventually rain. here is the way the latest models show it's going to pan out. snowfall moves in sunday night into monday morning across the
the snow will change to sleet and freezing rain as the morning goes on as temperatures warm up. the sleet and freezing rain will continue until around noon. the transition from sleet and freezing rain to rainfall is critical. right now we think it's going to occur around noon across the upstate. we will see more ice. eventually we will see rainfall takeover across the area and that rain could be heavy at times as the front moves through monday evening and we begin to try things up. about a half inch to maybe an inch across the area in the upstate for snow with a place of ice -- with a glaze of eyes on top. ice will be the troublemaker. for the mountains it looks like two inches to four inches of snowfall with a light glaze of ice on top. more snow in the carolina mountains.
rain. snow and sleet on monday. freezing rain between 7:00 noon. in the afternoon we will see rain takeover with impacts getting lower as the day goes on. it l lks like a light glaze state. the trees, sidewalk handle but being possible in the northern part of the upstate from travelers rest to greenville, pickens, and easily. higher impacts with snow and ice totals the higher along i-40 rthbound. 39 degrees. 36, the high threat the day tomorrow. as we head into tuesday, whatever did fall on monday will likely melt quickly. a high temperature of 50 by tuesday heading to the 60's by this time next week.
myra: we did see snow yesterday that did not last long. we have proof it happened. chris: pictures and video were sent to us across the area. at 11:00 yesterday morning you could see flakes falling around greenville especially over the falls. myra: the snow covering the sand on the outer banks. you can see that white stuff coming down. snow definitely not common in nags head. chris: photographers were out in full swing yesterday the second the snow started falling. some of the flakes falling in the upstate. myra: there was more snow sent in. we always see the patio furniture. take a look at the dogs. chris: my dog loves playing in it. they don't know what to do with the snow is falling.

beat kentucky was two years ago. frank martin says with as good as these teams are the sec deserves more respect in the polls then again. top two teams in the league are not ranked higher than top 20 and south carolina is not ranked in one of the polls. >> i cannot complain about our publicity. we have not been relevant for 100 years. we have to earn that. you don't get that because you win a game in february. you have to earn it over a period of time. we have to stay in the moment. my comment was more based on our league, the way it is viewed. maybe i'm wrong. is there another conference where the number one and two seeds are not ranked? a does not make sense to me. >> today's game will be televised on espn. clemson needs to rattle off a few wins do make its way back into the tournament bubble. clemson has lost back-to-back games. the tigers have six games remaining in the regular season
likely need to win five out of six to have a shot at tournament berth. it will be a quick turnaround for the crew at the will. clemson plays at 2:00 this afternoon and as soon as that game is over, the crew has to spin that arena from a basketball arena into a hockey arena. nascar season begins this weekend. all winter cars were on the track friday. nascar did away with off-season testing so tires meeting asphalt for the first time for the newly renovated daytona international speedway. tonight is the sprint unlimited and next week's race week in advance of the daytona 500. last year's winner says the single goal for this season, to win the championship at the end. >> i feel like we have had two championship seasons without a trophy. we have a lot of confidence. we know what it takes to win the whole thing. we have been on the edge and

brad: i support bernie sanders because i think that his ideas are much more forward thinking and innovative than any of the other candidates. when bernie sanders is engaging with the black lives matter movement it's proof positive that he doesn't just give lip service to being supportive of issues
that matter to people of color in this country. and when he is elected we will see long-overdue changes to our criminal justice system that continues to criminalize people just for being black.

families because that is the basic unit for a strong nation. >> it is politically correct to suggest that a husband and a wife, a man and a woman that are organized around loving their children with their heart and soul is just one choice. if you have that you that that is the choice that will create the greatest possibilities for families to be loving and wholesome and that children will have a chance to succeed that you are being judgmental. >> we should not have policies that are anti-family. we have a tax code that does not just punish marriage but punishes child formation. that is why i have an increase in the child tax credit. >> i do think that government policies have contributed to the breakdown of the family. you look at government policies, our broken welfare system. you are doing nobody in favor when you have government
