2:00 am
zblnchts as the battle for syria's and fighting the ebola epidemic. and poised to hammer japan, as people in okinawa begin to feel the effects of typhoon vongfong. welcome to the viewers in the u.s. and around the world. i'm emra walker.
2:01 am
we begin with the growing concerns about isis in iraq and syria. and isis militants are threatening to overrun ann bar, a key province west of the capital. iraqi forces are up against the wall, and some units are in danger of being cut off. the islamic terror group already controls a number of cities in ann bar. >> anbar province is in trouble. we are helping the iraqi security forces. as i have said, the president has said, all of our senior officials have said, this is a difficult effort. it is going to take time. it won't be easy. >> and, of course, what about the threat to baghdad itself? joining us now live from the iraqi capital is cnn's ben wedem
2:02 am
wedeman. doesn't sound good in anbar. what's the situation? >> doesn't sound good, but it hasn't been very good for several weeks, what with the fall of a town last week to isis. but we are getting messages from iraqi officials that the situation is increasingly urgent. we heard for instance from an official in anbar that the provincial council asked the government in baghdad to ask the united states to send ground forces there. this is a significant shift. the government has been adamant that it doesn't want ground troops. but given the situation with isis controlling a majority of the territory. hard to say how much. it's the biggest province in iraq. basically the province begins about ten miles to the west of here.
2:03 am
now we were on the defensive perimeter of baghdad just a few days ago. and we saw that the iraqi army does have significant defenses in that area. and what we saw is that around baghdad itself they seem to be and run attacks.conducting hit not a frontal assault on the capital. but they are focusing on a string of cities along the euphrates where they are concentrated. that's the immediate objective. >> you mentioned baghdad, and u.s. military officials are expressing confidence that the iraqi military will be able to prevent isis from taking over the capital. and you mentioned you spent time with iraqi forces recently. what was your feeling on how capable or committed they are to this fight considering, you know, the iraqi military was overrun by isis in several cities.
2:04 am
>> it's important to keep in mind that when you go out and visit the front line, they show you what they want you to see. so you don't see the problematic units. they don't want to tell you about the high desertions or the fact that according to many reports some iraqi soldiers actually give their salaries to their commanding officers to avoid serving on the front lines. what they showed us seemed to be capable troops holding the ground in that area. but even in the area we were at, which is next to a sunni community to the west of baghdad near baghdad airport, we were given to understand that during the day, yes, the iraqi army, the police, they have check points in the area. but at night they go back to their bases and isis-friendly elements, shall we say, then take over abu ghraib.
2:05 am
and, of course, it's very near to the baghdad airport. until now operations at the airport continue as normal. we understand they do have some electronic countermeasures. that is where u.s. apache helicopters are operating from. so the defenses in that area are pretty strong. but what we are seeing, as i said before, is that isis is focusing on essentially taking over all of anbar province, and they are concerned that alone they cannot stop isis from taking over anbar. >> okay, ben with the latest in baghdad. and in syria, isis fighters reportedly now control half the kurdish town of kobani near the border with turkey. and they are closer than ever within seizing the entire time. and nick walsh, and kobani has
2:06 am
been under seeiege. and officials have admitted that kobani will fall. does it have any hope? >> reporter: hard question to answer. it looks very grim at this stage. just as you joined us, we're hearing what sounds like a jet passing over kobani. progress overnight seems to have been made by isis. heavy fighting around the security buildings slightly to the east of that city center where the curds are holding out. it's an impossible task, they are moving in from the east and the south. pushing to the north. and a grim assessment from the u.n. essential envoy where he had this to say about those still holding out inside the city. >> this is the last entry point or exit point which you have for the city. and if you look at where the
2:07 am
coalition has been hitting, you can see that since they have been trying to hit where isis is present, the city is literally surrounded except for this. the 700 plus, perhaps, if they move a little bit further, the 12,000 people, civilians, apart from the fighters, will be most likely massacred. >> reporter: you know what a difficult job he has compared to even the impossible task his predecessor had. trying to negotiate between the syrian government and the rebels. now he's coming to the job seeing isis sweeping across so much territory. the question, how many people are trapped and where? we're talking about hundreds in the center unable to move. but potentially over 10,000 on the other side of this official turkish border crossing behind me. that's the key thing. we know isis is moving to the
2:08 am
east to potentially seal off any exit strategy for the kurds. the question is, what is the bottom line? when do they think they need to get out? >> we have seen anger from the population and protests that have turned deadly in some cases in turkey for the perceived inaction in kobani by the international community. and namely turkey. nick, when it comes to the kurds, does the u.s. have a different strategy in syria versus iraq? >> reporter: the u.s. are quite open that they don't see the strategy here about retaking ground. they are incompatible. how can you put them on the back foot unless you can stop them from increasing their presence. especially this one so close to
2:09 am
the nato turkey. humanitarian issues, thousands might die. but these are the kurds who they consider to be a terrorist organization. perhaps they want to ensure that the kurds don't see a military victory here, but face international opinion if lives are lost that could have been prevented through failure of the turkish military. that border is closed at this stage. the question is how many are inside? how good a grasp the turkish authorities have of the scale inside, how many people are trapped and exactly what do they say is the bottom line? when are they going to let them out, if at all. that's them on the hills around it. >> the other important aspect is the mass ihumanitarian situation under way. and thank you very much, nick. well, let's talk about the weather now. and what was the strongest storm
2:10 am
of 2014, typhoon vongfong, has been reaching parts of japan and packing quite a punch. this is what the huge storm looks like from the international space station high above the earth. that's a large eye. derrick is tracking this. what's the latest? wh >> when they captured the image, it was when vongfong was at its largest. 80 kilometers wide. and by the way, vongfong actually directly translated in cantonese means wasp. and okinawa is feeling the sting as we speak. maybe 25 to 30 kilometers offshore from making a direct impact with the okinawa island. this is the latest, category 3, 160 kilometer per hour wind sustained across the region with higher wind gusts.
2:11 am
this is the latest radar. and i want to show you this, look at the continuous pounding of rain on okinawa over the past several hours. it's very moderate and severe over the last few minutes. in fact we're talking about rainfall rates anywhere from 30 to 50 millimeters per hour. looking for the possibility of flooding on top of the strong winds. this is actually the current conditions near the air force base. typhoon-strength winds, and more the same for the seventh-largest japanese airport in the southern parts of the island. this is the wind gusts, 130 kilometer per hour out of the northeast. and look at the wind gusts. another couple of hours with the strongest winds. then a lull because the eye wall will pass through the region. and the winds pick up again. we saw the eye wall from the international space station a moment ago. often when this large they can
2:12 am
be misleading. because the winds, as you'll see on the animation, start tolessen as the eye wall passes over land. and the backside of the storm picks up just in time for people to get a second feeling from this particular storm. really at this point in time, okinawa impacts are strong and severe. heavy rain and strong winds. our hearts are with those people at the moment. >> you cannot let your guard down. thanks for pointing that out. the world health organization has announced new numbers of the people who died from ebola. and the news is not good. details ahead. and protesters make their voices heard again. more on the renewed effort to bring charges against the police officer who killed an unarmed black teenager in ferguson, missouri. ♪ [ male announcer ] united is rolling out

global, satellite-fed wi-fi to connect you even 35,000 feet over the ocean. ♪ that's...wifi friendly. ♪ that's...wifi friendly. and for many, it's a struggle to keep your a1c down. so imagine, what if there was a new class of medicine that works differently to lower blood sugar? imagine, loving your numbers. introducing once-daily invokana®. it's the first of a new kind of prescription medicine that's used along with diet and exercise to lower blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes. invokana® is a once-daily pill that works around the clock to help lower a1c. here's how: the kidneys allow sugar to be absorbed back into the body. invokana® reduces the amount of sugar allowed back in, and sends some sugar out through the process of urination.
2:14 am
and while it's not for weight loss, it may help you lose some weight. invokana® can cause important side effects, including dehydration, which may cause some people to have loss of body water and salt. this may also cause you to feel dizzy, faint, lightheaded, or weak especially when you stand up. other side effects may include kidney problems, genital yeast infections, urinary tract infections, changes in urination, high potassium in the blood, or increases in cholesterol. do not take invokana® if you have severe kidney problems or are on dialysis or if allergic to invokana® or its ingredients. symptoms of allergic reaction may include rash, swelling, difficulty breathing or swallowing. if you experience any of these symptoms, stop taking invokana® and call your doctor right away or go to the nearest hospital. tell your doctor about any medical conditions, medications you are taking, and if you have kidney or liver problems. using invokana® with a sulfonylurea or insulin may
2:15 am
increase risk of low blood sugar. it's time. lower your blood sugar with invokana®. imagine loving your numbers. ask your doctor about invokana®. the ebola epidemic only seems to be getting worse. the world health organization announced friday that more than 4,000 people have now died from the virus. the vast majority of the deaths are in three west african countries, sierra leone, guinea and liberia which has been hardest hit. a man from liberia died in the united states. and aiding the response in west africa, military officials say they are making a difference.
2:16 am
new clinics allow for faster diagnosis. and that means people who don't have ebola are spending less time isolated with those who do. u.s. president barack obama has authorized the deployment of up to 4,000 troops to west africa to deal with the epidemic. now meanwhile, we're getting new information on teresa romero's condition. she is the nurses assistant in spain, the only person known to have contracted ebola outside of west africa. lisa se joining us from madrid. what's the latest? >> reporter: sources with knowledge of her condition tell us that she is serious but stable. if you remember two days or so ago we were hearing word she had taken a turn for the worse. and reports she was needing a breathing apparatus. we found out through her brother who had seen her. that day had a breathing
2:17 am
apparatus. things have changed, it's good. one day you're much better, and suddenly things take a turn. so it's great news to hear, then. and in the meantime, overnight, we have heard that three more people have been admitted. that's a total of 17 people. the three admitted, one is a nurse, one is a hospital cleaner and the other one is a beautician. we have three beauticians now here. all people who have had some sort of contact with teresa roe per a. one of those actually waxed her. of those, she's the only one with ebola. the others are under observation. there is one nurse under investigation, and she's one of the nurses that had contact with the missionary. so part of the team of 30 that were looking after the two missionaries that died. more people coming in at their own free will. decided to be in an environment rather than being at home and
2:18 am
retaking their temperatures. fearing if they have anything, they will pass it on to their family and children. >> it sure must be a frightening time as they wait and see what the tests turn out to show. you know, you said the nurses assistant recently we learned that she may have contracted ebola while she was taking off her protective gear and somehow the glove touched her face. i know government officials there in spain are calling for calm, but there's been a lot of criticism about the protocols in place. tell us more about that, and are changes forth coming considering they're asking people not to pan panic? >> reporter: yeah. that's the main point in the last three days. so many angry nurses and really furious, to be honest, they felt they didn't have a protocol in place to deal with something like this. so one of the doctors behind us at the hospital under observation is one of the
2:19 am
doctors that was looking after her when she went to the first hospital. and he published a really damning account of the treatment he was looking after her, he said they had a suit, his protective gear was too short, the sleeves were too short, so bare skin was touching her. he looked after her for 14 hours, changed the suit seven times. when she started getting worse, vomiting and diarrhea, he alerted the authorities within his hospital. and it took them some eight hours to to really do anything about it. so that really gives you an idea how furious people are. they weren't taking it seriously enough. and prior to that, we knew that she had, you know, she had symptoms for eight days. it took eight days plus more than eight hours to get her here. >> now a special committee has been formed by the spanish government to seemingly address these concerns. the developments there, thank
2:20 am
you so much. well, you know, for the second time in a week, north and south korea exchanging gunfire. and this time it's over balloons. more on the latest tensions. plus kim jong-un's disappearing act. that's all coming up next.
2:21 am
2:22 am
state media stays talks with the south are all by strapped. this comes one day after south korea launched propaganda balloons into the north, leading them to fire on each other. last week they were resuming a formal dialogue. all this while north korea's leader, kim jong-un, is nowhere to be seen. >> reporter: it started with propaganda balloons from south to north korea. ended with both koreas exchanging machine gunfire across the border. balloons intended for north korean residents, filled with
2:23 am
dollar bills and dvds and books showing life in the south. they often threaten to respond, today they did. no casualties in the south. no way of knowing in the north. fresh violence, wondering if the 31-year-old, where he is. he was seen limping over the summer. state-run media admitted he was suffering discomfort. >> we get all kinds of cues and suggestions. it's like the old days of the soviet union. this guy's missing or that guy's missing. >> reporter: five weeks out of the of the public eye is a long time far leader who up until now has not been camera shy. kim did not attend the ceremony for the anniversary of the founding rulers workers party, instead sending flowers to send respects to his father and grandfather. ankle surgery, stroke or military coup, some rumors more
2:24 am
credible than others. but many experts here say a coup is unlikely with the flurry of recent diplomacy. >> you would not expect a newly established, a group of old bureaucrats to be so bold and active. >> reporter: south korea's defense minister believes he may be staying near the pyongyang. it's the same hospital where his late father and grandfather were treated for illnesses before him. paula cox, cnn, seoul. >> no surprise there's no information coming out. john is an assistant professor at the graduate school of international studies and joins us from seoul. thank you for making the time. >> you bet. >> no surprise, running rampant, it's an opaque nation. we don't know what's going on with the regime. the speculation is it kim
2:25 am
jong-un really ill, that's what south korean officials believe, or has he been disposed? what are your thoughts? >> well, until now i think the least-interesting explanation is the most likely. in that this is some physical problem. north korean state media has alluded to that. and your viewers have seen there's footage of him walking with great difficulty. the way they work, to show his leader in their early 30s, he's supposed to be virile and die nam pic namic. and to put him on stage on crutches or in a wheelchair does not work. that could explain the absence. >> the state-run media in north korea is showing these images as we see kim jong-un limping there. if they're willing to show some kind of limp, some kind of illness, why wouldn't they
2:26 am
release a little bit more information about his health? >> that's a good question. and they could end all of this speculation simply by releasing a photograph of him working at his desk. >> exactly. >> that leads many e e to think this point they're enjoying the attention. north korea is more media-savvy than we realize. they pay a lot of attention to themselves and want the world to pay attention to them. he's getting a lot of free p.r. including our investigation right now. >> absolutely. >> my best guess is that's something that they want. >> let me ask you this. hypothetically, if there were a coup, what kind of signs would we see? we heard paula talking to the analyst, the fact there was a surprise recent visit by north korean officials to south korea. that -- that shows that, you know, there had not been a coup.
2:27 am
there would not be this kind of high-level di ploem isplomacdip. do you agree and would we know if he had been disposed? >> i tend to agree with your earlier expert. there should be a lot more signs if something were seriously wrong. we wouldn't see his face all over the website. which is what you see on the home page of their state-controlled media. and wouldn't be continuing to refer to him in the domestic media. they would be sort of withdrawn right now. there would be more lockdown and shutdown of the country. they would be calling their foreign ministers back home. there would be some strange military movements. we're not seeing any of that. none of those signs. >> just quickly before we go, just a quick answer here. you're in seoul. are people glued to the media trying to figure out what is going on?
2:28 am
>> you know, this often happens. i think people are a little less obsessed here than the further away you get from north korea. they're used to north korea doing strange things. and i think they've learned to wait and let the dust settle and then look for the real answer. >> great perspective there. we thank you for joining us this hour. appreciate it. well, you know, the streets are filling up in hong kong. coming up, pro-democracy protesters show their disapproval of the government by camping out in the streets. plus today it's just for practice, but tomorrow could be a different story. we'll take you inside one new york hospital preparing for ebola.

2:32 am
and a prayer service for the american hostage that isis is threatening to kill. it was held in indiana at his family's request. they expressed hope isis might spare his life and honored his work helping syrian war refug refugees. supporters of same-sex marriage celebrating victories in the u.s. this week. they started taking place minutes after a judge overruled the bans. and also on friday, idaho joined 26 other states that allow same-sex marriage when the u.s. supreme court refused a state request to delay them there. and in new jersey, six high school football players accused of hazing and sexual assault are in custody. they are accused of sexually abusing their classmates. the abuse may have gone on for a year. the allegations prompted the
2:33 am
superintendent to cancel the remainder of the season. many parents and supporters of the team are outraged by the decision. they have won the state championship three of the last four years. it is being called a weekend of resistance in eastern missouri. protesters are demanding the ferguson police officer who shot and killed 18-year-old michael brown two months ago be arrested and charged. the four-day demonstration started friday and continues with the march planned this morning in st. louis. fueling the outrage is a shooting death of another black teenager just days ago in st. louis. he was killed in a shootout with an off-duty officer. that shooting has also prompted some tense moments. >> my baby. my baby. no. my baby no more. >> reporter: it started off with a peaceful, tearful vigil,
2:34 am
killed by an off-duty police officer working a security job. but by midnight, the tone had completely changed. police and protesters clashed near the shooting scene. police, using pepper spray. some protesters going on the attack. first targeting police vehicles with kicks and bricks, then targeting police themselves. >> what i describe as a large knife came flying out of the crowd. actually hit an officer on the shoulder. fortunately not the blade edge and landed on the ground. >> before it was over, protesters torching an american flag. the anger of the killing of another black teenager at the hands of a police officer in the st. louis area. the meyers case adding fuel to the racially-charged atmosphere in and around st. louis where hundreds of people were already planning to gather to protest another case involving an 18-year-old black teenager
2:35 am
killed at the hands of a white police officer. that of michael brown in ferguson, missouri. >> i county sit back on facebook and keep posting without coming out and doing some real action. >> reporter: brown's case sparked weeks of intense protests in ferguson, missouri. brown was unarmed, and many witnesses said he had his hands up when he was shot six times by ferguson police officer darren wilson. the case is now with a grand jury. but the meyers case is different, police say he was armed. and the uniformed off-duty police officer gave chase when he saw him and two others running after they saw the officer do a u-turn. they got into a struggle, and meyers shot at the officer three times. the officer returned fire, taking 17 shots. seven to eight hit myers, the fatal to the head. but family and friends don't believe the story, saying he was
2:36 am
armed with a sandwich. he's seen here buying a sandwich in a store surveillance video just minutes before he was killed. >> we are strong. >> reporter: whatever the case, the mistrust and racial tension growing ever stronger here. cnn, st. louis, missouri. the global death toll from ebola has now surpassed 4,000. the world health organization says there are nearly 8400 confirmed or suspected cases of ebola in west africa. many fear the real numbers could be much higher. the vast majority of cases are in liberia, sierra leone and guinea. one person has died in the united states. they are facing the reality that ebola is just a plane ride away, u.s. officials are adopting new safeguards just in case.
2:37 am
rosa flores reports on how thing haves changed at one new york medical center. >> hospitals around the country are preparing for ebola patients. what are hospitals preparing to do, and what can patients expect? let me show you. at mt. sinai, all a patient would have to do is walk in and say i have a fever, and dr. sheer from mt. sinai says that begins the entire process. >> right. at that point the staff member would go through a series of questions in our algorithm. >> reporter: some of the questions are basic and on signs on the wall. like, did you travel internationally? do you have symptoms like cough, vomiting or diarrhea? >> security would keep the hallway secure from patients and staff to move you, the patient safely to a secure space. >> reporter: so no touching anything. >> no touching anything.
2:38 am
>> reporter: no talking to anyone. >> right. and given a different clinical scenario, you could be in a wheelchair or stretcher. >> depending on the condition of the patient. >> if that was the case, more suiting up with personal protective equipment. >> reporter: some of the gear, gloves, plastic gowns, face shields. >> and a surgical mask to wear under you as well. >> reporter: protecting your face, eyes mouth and nose. all the mucus membranes. all the gear is impermeable, means fluids can't pass through. once the patient is inside the isolation room, that's it. there is no contact with anyone while doctors huddle outside and figure out next steps. >> what kind of care you needed, blood to be drawn. and also escalating it to hospital leadership and for the infectious disease department to notify the department of health. most of the care is supportive
2:39 am
care. as we know, there's no real proven therapy specifically for ebola at this time. good hydration, prevention of other infections, diagnosing other infections that may be going on. all of that can be done now. >> reporter: hospitals around the country have isolation rooms ready for ebola patients. hoping they don't have use them. rosa flores, new york. and hong kong now, pro-democracy demonstrations are growing in hong kong. thousands are gathering in the financial district. following calls for a new show of strength after the government canceled talks with student leaders. they are demanding full democratic elections to decide hong kong's leader in 2017. andrew stevens joins us from the protest site. where do things stand now? >> reporter: well, as you say, a lot more people have come into
2:40 am
this main protest site in the past 24 hours. there are now thousands and thousands of people here. and it's collected quite a few onlookers as well. a lot of families walking through to see what's going on. don't underestimate the commitments of the student-led protests. look behind me. you can see the number of people going right up into the financial heart of the city. and it's got that air of perms in an -- permanence here. so many tents, and places they can get refreshments. if you look across here, they have set up a homework stand here. these are students. a lot of these students are just 16, 17 years old. they have set up this bench here. i have been talking to some of the students here. as you can see, this is a fashion student. we have math students here. there's music. there's economics. all these kids are down here basically protesting, but making sure they stay up, current, with
2:41 am
their studies. and what's important about this is it just goes to show how much of the protests are being led by students. quite young students at that, 16, 17 years old. joshua wong, who leads one of the main protest groups is 17 years old. he's only going to be allowed 18. he'll be allowed to vote on monday, on his birthday. gives you an idea of the range of the people here. students they have been joined by workers as well. and joined by the onlookers as i say. and this is one of three sites which is still operating in the occupy movement. so at this stage, thousands of people here, no indication that anyone is planning to leave any time soon. the talks, as you say, are off. we don't know at this stage when they're going to be on again. the leadership of hong kong have left hong kong for meetings in china. they'll start coming back on monday. so it'll be at least until monday before we get any
2:42 am
understanding of the next step of what happens in the occupy movement. >> clearly as you show us, andrew, they are hunkering down as they are down their homework. it's just so remarkable to see how young they are. let me ask you this, because right now it is the weekend. i don't know how much they are disrupting in terms of business, but the financial district, i'm sure, is obviously not as busy as on a monday, tuesday, or during the workweek. so come monday, could the pressure -- could there be more pressure on the hong kong government to reschedule the talks if these protests continue and continue to gain momentum? >> reporter: yeah. i think that's a fair and accurate forecast of what's likely to happen. the longer this goes on, obviously, the more pressure, the more people who are inconvenienced and will start to resent the fact they are finding it difficult to get to work to do their job properly.
2:43 am
we have seen violent confrontations in other parts of the hong kong between shop owners and occupy protesters. they were fueled by triad-related people. so there is -- there has been flashpoints. and while this area is blocked, it's more of a disruption, a major inconvenience than actually paralyzing the city. we need to make that quite clear distinction. the city still operates, the financial district is still operating. people are getting to work, but it's taking time. just an inconvenience. interesting on friday night, a group of people came down from the finance community to lend their support to the protesters and from the fire association to lend their support to the protesters. there is still broader community support here. but the longer this goes on, obviously, that support's going to be difficult to sustain. because people need to basically get their livelihoods, keep working. >> right. as you did report several days
2:44 am
about that loss of support from people who did support this pro-democracy movement. and then that support started to wane when they felt like their livelihoods were being threatened. andrew stevens, thank you for the reporting in the financial district of hong kong. they come from different generations, faiths and rival nations. but the winners of this year's nobel peace prize share a common goal, helping children live better, safer lives. more on their achievements straight ahead. plus more fan fights are breaking out at u.s. sporting events. we'll look at what's fueling these brawls and what's being done to stop this violence.

2:48 am
committee is seeking to honor them and unite their native countries, pakistan and india. >> the nobel committee regards it as an important point for a hindu and a muslim. an indian and a pakistani, to join in a common struggle for education and against extremism. >> the nobel committee awarded the 2014 peace prize to kailash and malala for their child advocacy. but it's not just about children. >> we have to go a step further and work toward peace. and for india and pakistan, it's very important that the children are born and live in peace. >> reporter: first step, malala said, the two will ask the leaders to join them in december. >> we decided he's from india and i'm a pakistan, we will try to build strong relationships between india and pakistan. i want both of the countries to
2:49 am
have dialogue, to have talks about peace. and to think about progress. to think about development. rather than fighting with each other. >> reporter: but as the two celebrated their words and vowed to work for peace, villagers in indian-ruled kashmir survived another round of shelling across the disputed border. >> translator: there was heavy shelling from pakistan's side in the night. fire came from this direction and hit here. it caused a lot of damage in the village. >> reporter: more than ten pakistani and eight indian villagers have died in the most recent spate of violence. and tensions remain high across the heavily-armed border. >> this a life worth living? what on earth is happening here, tiny children are being martyrs. this is totally inhuman. >> reporter: both sides are warning the other to stop the firing or have retaliation. they have an important platform
2:50 am
to draw attention to the need for peace, but they face an uphill battle. >> two very inspiring people. ahead on cnn, typhoon vongfong makes land fall in japan, we'll have a report just after the break. hi dad. she's a dietitian. and back when i wasn't eating right, she got me drinking boost. it's got a great taste, and it helps give me the nutrition i was missing. helping me stay more like me.
