7:05 am
michael? >> all right, matt, our thoughts are with the officer's family, thank you so much. now to that storm threat. millions from nashville to philadelphia are bracing for flash flooding and severe weather after the midwest got hit with powerful storms overnight. ginger has the very latest. good morning to you, ginger. >> good morning to you, michael. let me take you all to just outside of st. louis, missouri where they had two to three inches of rain very quickly. this is granite city, illinois, full of water from flash flooding. that's what really proved to be one of the big problems. that and the confirmed tornado in central illinois. you see the video there. then in wyoming, this picturesque land spout -- i say picturesque because it didn't hurt anyone. today the area that has to watch for damaging winds along that cold front stretches from kentucky to tennessee, including nashville and knoxville over to washington, d.c. flash flood alerts for philadelphia. david. >> thanks. we turn to the battle over immigration. a new move by the trump administration would change the rules on who gets to stay in the u.s. and they'll be looking at whether they have ever used public assistance or might use it in the future. let's get right to cecilia vega live at the white house with
7:06 am
much more. as you know, a lot of anger over what some say the administration is really trying to do here. >> reporter: david, good morning, a lot of anger. now a lot of lawsuit athlete lat well. we are not talking about people in this country illegally, undocumented immigrants. these are people who are trying to obtain permanent status in the united states and if they are struggling financially, these new rules will make it much harder to stay. this morning, outrage over president trump's immigration crackdown. >> it's one consistent show of a president who is a racist and basically wants a whiter, wealthier nation. >> reporter: democrats denouncing new rules that make it tougher for legal immigrants to stay in the country permanently if they've used public assistance like medicaid or food stamps. other 2020 rivals like senator kamala harris calling the move indefensible. and beto o'rourke tweeting, if you're an immigrant, president trump believes you have no place in this country. about half a million immigrants apply for green cards each year. under these new rules, the vast majority could be at risk of
7:07 am
being denied permanent legal status. not affected, people who already have green cards, pregnant women and children and refugees and asylum seekers. >> we certainly expect people of any income to stand on their own two feet. >> reporter: the trump administration says it doesn't want low income immigrants to become a burden on society, even though they pay taxes and, according to an associated press analysis, use significantly less public benefits than low income native born adults. asked if the policy means that famous plaque on the statue of liberty inviting the poor and huddled masses coming down, the president's immigration chief said this. >> i'm certainly not prepared to take anything down off the statue of liberty. >> reporter: immigrants' rights groups say people will end up refusing public assistance, help, fearing this will jeopardize their chances of staying in this country permanently. no doubt this is going to end up in the courts. >> it sure will.
7:08 am
cecelia, thank you. new developments into the investigation of jeffrey epstein's death. we're learning one of the guards on duty the night he died wasn't a regular correctional officer. linsey davis is here and has the latest for us. good morning, linsey. >> good morning, robin. he was a temporary officer filling in due to a staffing shortage. attorney general william barr with forboding words saying just because epstein won't have his day in court, co-conspirators, quote, should not rest easy. victims deserve justice and will get it. >> reporter: this morning more confusion surrounding the moments leading up to jeffrey epstein's death. according to the ap, one of the guards assigned to watch him wasn't even a correctional officer. >> we're learning of serious irregularities at this facility that are deeply concerning and demand a thorough investigation. >> reporter: sources tell abc news that at the urging of his defense attorneys, epstein was taken off suicide watch two weeks ago and while there were cameras on the cell block where he was held, they did not focus
7:09 am
on individual units. so it's unlikely there's surveillance video of the moment of his death. this as little st. james, jeffrey epstein's private oasis in the caribbean, is now the subject of a raid by both the fbi and the nypd. abc news was there as agencies searched for new evidence against the deceased financier and potential co-conspirators. we're also learning more about ghislaine maxwell who was accused of recruiting underage girls like virginia giuffre to act as underage sex slaves for jeffrey epstein. >> the training started immediately, give jeffrey what he wants. a lot of this training came from ghislaine herself. >> reporter: in deposition testimony from unsealed documents giuffre says she was directed to have sex with several powerful men like former governor of new mexico bill richardson, former senator george mitchell and prince andrew. all of the men have denied those allegations. richardson and mitchell deny ever having met her. on sunday a smiling prince andrew was spotted accompanying
7:10 am
his mother, the queen, to church. conchita sarnoff, an advocate for victims of sex trafficking wrote a book about epstein and said she knew maxwell socially. >> according to virginia's filings, she would teach the underage girls how to behave, how to act, how to dress, how to eat properly. i think those girls were so fearful of ghislaine, a, because she was much older than they were and because she lived with epstein and had a relationship with epstein. whatever that relationship was, it clearly was a close relationship. >> reporter: maxwell has consistently denied all allegations and has not been charged with any crime. and with regard to maxwell we have reason to believe that she is now in europe. meanwhile, the attorney general says he is appalled and angered about what he described as the manhattan correctional center's failure to secure epstein and added there will be accountability. david? >> linsey s than ks
7:11 am
let's bring in our chief legal analyst dan abrams. this new reporting that one of the two correctional officers watching over jeffrey epstein when he hanged himself didn't work normally as a correctional officer. >> what's even more astonishing is that this happens fairly regularly. the system is so taxed and understaffed that they have to recruit people who are teachers or secretaries, nurses even at times to fill in as correctional officers. we don't know exactly what this person's job was but it does seem clear that the person wasn't a regular correctional officer. >> the question, why does it take a case like this to show it's overtaxed. >> exactly. >> it's been the same way for a while now. our cameras capturing federal agents, fbi, nypd down in the u.s. virgin islands. that tells you that this prosecution is far from over. >> there are one of two reasons they're down there. there is an fbi office based out of san juan which covers the u.s. virgin islands. it could be that they are
7:12 am
investigating the possibility of a crime that occurred at that home. number two though could be that when you believe that there's a conspiracy, the government can try to take away assets that they believe were involved in that conspiracy. so they could argue that that home was used as part of a criminal conspiracy and they could try to basically seize it. so it's unclear, is this investigation of another crime, is this civil asset forfeiture. uncle unclear but it's clear the fbi is there. >> i want to get to the court filings involving ghislaine maxwell who lived with epstein. she's been accused of coaching the girls, teaching them how to dress and what not. they were fearful of her. of course all allegations at this point. where is she? why don't we know more about her? >> we don't know exactly where she is. it sounds like she may be in europe. she should be very concerned right now. she is the person who is talked about again and again and again and as you heard the attorney general say, they're investigating others. remember, she's in europe and charged with a crime, serious crime, she would be extradited. so iathe be mh tcome.
7:13 am
n abrams thanks as always. robin, michael? we're going to go overseas now to a heroic takedown in sydney, australia. a knife-wielding man going on a stabbing spree, attacking two women before hero bystanders jumped in to take him down. abc's james longman has the story. good morning, james. >> reporter: good morning, michael. an extraordinary scene right in the center of sydney and some extraordinary bravery from members of the public who took on this attacker. this morning, dramatic footage showing a man wielding a bloodied knife running through central sydney. despite the risk, brave on lookers running towards the danger, pinning him to the ground with chairs and a milk crate. authorities say the 21-year-old alleged attacker killed one woman and stabbed another as he charged down the crowded street, jumping on the roof of a car, streaming at onlookers, shoot me, shoot me. three british men were among those who stopped his rampage. >> i don't know whether it's an inanythingorng but we were rtrg
7:14 am
myroth a ianlod and we >> ty wey nd ofha this on did, with clear evidence of previous are heros. >> reporter: authorities say the alleged attacker acted alone and may have recently come from a mental health facility. those young men say the only thing that went through their minds was, you've got to help people. i'm sure everyone in sydney is glad they did. david? >> incredible pictures. james, thank you. now to that mysterious and deadly nuclear blast in russia and the secrecy surrounding it. president trump weighing in this morning calling it a failed missile explosion. russia said at first there was no rise in radiation at all. now they admit levels shot up dramatically, several scientists killed, and ian pannell has the latest. >> reporter: this morning more questions and concerns about
7:15 am
that nuclear explosion in northern russia that killed five scientists and two defense personnel. u.s. officials say it was likely a test of russia's new missile dubbed sky fall by nato. touted by russian president vladimir putin as being able to hit any target in the world drawing renewed concern about a cold war type arms race. >> to see the russian state take the attitude of we're back in an arms race and that means some people are going to die. >> reporter: president trump weighing in, tweeting, the u.s. is learning much from the failed missile explosion in russia. we have similar though more advanced technology. the russian sky fall explosion has people worried about the air around the facility and far beyond, not good. while the russian government initially denied there had been a rise in radiation at all. this morning it's admitting levels increased four to 16 times after the explosion, albeit briefly. though on a vastly different scale, this incident believed to be one of the deadliest nuclear accidents in russia since chernobyl in 1986, now a hit
7:16 am
miniseries on hbo. on monday thousands attending the funeral of the seven lost in the explosion. this morning they're being hailed as true heros. the head of the russian nuclear agency saying they'll continue to work on what he calls new types of weapons. just in the last hour a spokesman for the kremlin trying to reassure people saying that the government will do all it can to ensure the safety of russian citizens. guys? >> all right, see what happens, ian. now we have new developments on one of the world's most puzzling mysteries. what happened to amelia earhart after she vanished during a flight in 1937? now the famed explorer who found "the titanic" is exploring a new clue. janai norman has more. >> reporter: it's one of the greatest unsolved mysteries of all time, where is the wreckage of amelia earhart's plane? >> she clearly wasn't where she thought she was. >> reporter: this morning a world renown scientist says he thinks he knows where it might be.
7:17 am
robert ballard who has famously found "the titanic" and explored the underwater wrecks left behind by pearl harbor thinks this photo taken in 1937 may hold the answer to where her plane went down. the image was viewed by intelligence analysts at the pentagon who concluded the object seen here has a semblance to the plane earhart was last seen flying. that photo taken off the shores of a small island in the pacific ocean just four and a half miles long and one mile wide. >> it's not the lochness monster. it's not big foot. that plane exists which means i'm going to find it. >> reporter: now ballard thinks he has enough evidence to make another underwater discovery, heading to that remote island to try and solve the earhart mystery. ballard is convinced that he can find earhart's plane but there are concerns that what's left
7:18 am
will be pieces of debris. abc news is in constant contact with nat geo. we'll have the latest developments as they search for those remains. how exciting. >> yeah. >> very. >> he said it exists and i'm going to find it. >> yep. >> if anybody can, it can be him. >> absolutely. >> thanks, janai. we're following a lot of other stories this morning including a major s.w.a.t.ing scare. the 16-year-old fortnight world champion targeted by a dangerous prank. the 911 call and the moment police swarmed his parents' home. and more on that disturbing discovery on a united flight, that camera in the bathroom. first let's get over to ginger and the heat. >> galveston, texas had their hottest temperature overnight and again early this morning. let's get to the tuesday trivia. it's brought to you by jeep wrangler.

7:35 am
blinking light in the airplane's bathroom, the perpetrator may have gotten away with it. this morning, allegations of an alarming discovery o inn rpne bathroom turned out to be a hidden camera. this newly released criminal complaint says a camera was discovered by a woman flying in first class on a flight from san diego to houston. after spotting a blue light near the door, she grabbed the object, quickly handed it over to the flight crew. upon landing, the united crew immediately turned it over to airport security. the airline telling us, when our crew was alerted of this issue, they acted quickly to notify the appropriate authorities. we will fully cooperate and support this investigation as it moves forward. according to the complaint, footage recovered shows a man setting up the camera, face obscured, but distinctive jewelry and clothing. the fbi scoured airport surveillance video. agents say they were able to
7:36 am
match the clothing and jewelry to a suspect, malaysian national and halliburton employee, choon ping lee. the company released a statement that they are aware of the situation and they are cooperating with the fbi and u.s. attorney's office in their investigation, but it's not just airplanes that are vulnerable to potential voyeurism. just last fall, a pensacola family say they found a hidden camera facing their bed while cruising to the caribbean. and in 2017, a couple in florida was secretly recorded in their airbnb rental. a camera was hidden inside a smoke detector looking down on their bed. that perpetrator was sentenced to 364 days for filming his airbnb guests. disturbing to say the least. in the united airlines investigation, the fbi says they also recovered deleted files from that same hidden camera, finding virlr emirates flight which included video of two women. the suspect is expected in court

7:38 am
relatively unknown. researchers tell us with conventional cigarettes it took 20, 30, 50 years to fully understand the effects. so we've got another 10 years or so before we can really look at what's happening here. and it's important to point out, experts say the brain isn't fully developed until it's 25. >> which is why you're really staying on this vaping story. you reported on the possible seizures before and researchers, people are still investigating this? >> that's right. the fda is looking into 127 cases of people, including children and young adults, who reported experiencing seizures after vaping. the fda says it's unclear if the e-cigarettes caused the reported seizures and are asking people with any unexpected health issues after vaping to please report it. >> we still know so little about this. >> it's still very new. >> thanks, eva. coming up, the shark sightings off the coast of cape cod and how these sightings may be sparking big business. come on back. actually be sparking big business. come on back. sparking big business. come on back. to...

we are back now with the rise of shark sightings sparking big business on cape cod. tourists not only buying shark merchandise, they're paying big money to get up close with actual sharks safely. will reeve is on cape cod this morning, back on the beach for us. good morning, will. good to see you. >> reporter: good morning, robin. shark watch continues. there have been hundreds of shark sightings this summer and dozens of beach closures, including four just yesterday, but even though it can be a little complicated going to the
7:43 am
beach here, tourists can't get enough of sharks on cape cod. >> dad, come look at it. >> reporter: since june there have been more than 150 shark sightings off the coast of cape cod. >> no way! >> reporter: including this one friday near provincetown. >> that is unreal. >> we saw a fin probably 15 yards off the bow. >> right before we were going to jump off we saw the shark. >> the shark was pretty much the size of the boat, probably like 18 feet. it was pretty crazy. >> we were probably floating with it for like 15 minutes. >> reporter: 40 times since july massachusetts beaches closed for sharks. with the chaos comes commerce, shark tours. the local shark conservancy center says they've seen a 60% increase in visitors the last three years. one luxury inn offering trips for $2,500. this captain with cape star charters said cape cod is the premiere place to spot sharks
7:44 am
and due to high demand has begun offering more viewing tours than in previous years. >> people on fishing charters are more concerned about seeing a shark than going back and fishing. that's a big idea. it's why we're transitions into doing white shark trips. >> reporter: in town this store sells nearly $50,000 a year of shark-themed attire they call killer casual apparel. >> shark sightings have been increasing more and more every summer so it's kind of crazy. no one seems to get scared and i think that's the infatuation with the shark sightings. >> reporter: business is booming. >> we thought it was going to slow down because of the incidents last year. actually it's picked up. people are still interested in sharks despite the threat. >> reporter: it's not just in massachusetts. shark-related dives in florida generated more than $221 million in revenue and fueled over 3,700 jobs in 2016 alone. >> oh, my god.
7:45 am
>> reporter: overall, tourism on the cape is doing well. it's still a top ten market for airbnb, but with so many sharks in the area and in the waters off the beaches, local business owners say one niche business isn't doing as great. that would be paddle board and kayak rentals, guys. >> that makes sense. >> are you getting extra pay for being on the beach? >> what's the beach tomorrow? >> gosh, two days in a row now. >> i hope so. i mean, this is reward enough. it's a beautiful day. >> a man who knows how to choose an assignment. >> that's right. >> thank you, will. coming up -- ♪ ice, ice baby >> freeze. it's our "play of the day." ♪ ice ice baby we are back now with our

8:15 am
staged and we should stop comparing ourselves to a false reality. for her, posing like this is a huge step forward. >> reporter: this morning, supermodel kate upton sending a message that all bodies are beautiful on the september cover of "health" magazine, showing how she looks without photo retouching. the 27-year-old flaunting her curves, making it her mission to help women feel strong and healthy, saying it's important for me to push out this different mind-set. i don't want anyone to think oh, no, i don't fit into that size 2 dress. you know what, who cares? buy another one. upton admits criticism has affected her but she's learned to put less focus on the scale and more on her health, saying perfection should not be the goal. >> for someone like kate upton who is a supermodel, a swimsuit model and who is famous for being absolutely gorgeous, for her to be able to show herself in a really real way, we just knew that would be something that would be really powerful.
8:16 am
>> reporter: the new mom also sending an important message to other moms out there. >> it's so hard after giving birth to also have all this pressure from everybody around you to have, like, to just snap right back into your best body, and that just doesn't work that way. so don't be so hard on yourself. >> that's right, don't be so hard on yourse. she had a baby nine months ago. she says putting herself first at some point during the day, eating well, working out, it creates a good mental space which helps prevent the criticism from getting to her. this is for you by the way. >> thank you. my girls are going to love this. i think everybody wants their kids to have a positive body major. >> just a reminder, everything we see out there is retouched and filtered, it's not reality. >> thank you, kate upton. david, over to you. >> thanks, michael. thanks, paula. we're going to turn to a "gma" parenting alert. as children get ready to go back to school, the question, how do you get them off the screens. it's a struggle even the youtube ceo is facing this morning. we saw this story in "the new
8:17 am
york times". rebecca jarvis has a lot more on this. a lot of parents are going to be listening. >> you can imagine these conversations are happening right now. a lot of negotiations are happening. this is a tough transition, especially with back to school, moving the kids from freedom of summer to the structure of school, but there are ways to minimize screen time and keep your sanity. >> reporter: it's a battle so prevalent even the head of youtube, ceo susan wojcicki, says she's having with her kids. too much screen time. in a new interview telling the u.k.'s "guardian" newspaper i have times when i take away all my kids' phones, especially on a family vacation, because i want people to interact with each other. it comes back to balance. new york mom megan can relate. she says she can't get her kids away from screens, and they're just weeks away from starting school. >> it does have to be structured very differently during the school year mainly because there's no wiggle room. >> reporter: even though it's been a long summer of video games and smartphones, her kids don't want to put the screens away.
8:18 am
>> they really don't understand when i do say no, so that's when the outrage and the whining comes in. >> reporter: according to the american association of pediatrics, children 2 to 5 years old should only be on screen for one hour a day. while children 6 and older should have limits on what kind of media they should use to make room for sleep and physical activity. during the school year, it's important that children stay focused on their studies. >> it's best not to go in just cold turkey. our job now is to take a child's screen time as they have it right now and get it down to that quota by the beginning of the school year. >> and that solution boils down to consistency and communication with your kids. pediatricians recommend setting limits with children 6 and older, watching programs together. one great tip here, make a plan together how much screen time are you going to be consuming. when would the kids like reminders that that screen time is almost up.
8:19 am
so five-minute, ten-minute reminders, negotiate that. >> consistency is important. i'm curious, one of the recommendations that you had mentioned is designating a screen-free time. >> that's what the ceo of youtube says she does with her own kids, vacations, dinner time. these are times that are screen free. and think about it, what you're doing with your own screen, they are modelling that behavior. >> your baby girl is five months old and she notices when your phone is out. >> it's wild. we're trying to keep our phones aside because she watches. she notices. let's get outside to ginger. >> good morning, diane and good morning to san antonio, texas. they're only a couple hours from rosenburg, texas which is where our "gma" moment comes from. if you have a party and too many balloons, get merril the dog to help out. he loves popping them. yeah, it's his favorite past time. now you all know. if you have a "gma" moment,

8:21 am
i'll make it. when was it? >> reporter: life's never ending to-do list. sound familiar? that's how life looked for alicia ramos until she learned how to prioritize time for herself. >> i would put in my hours at the office and then after hours i would come home and do more work. constantly online and saying yes to everything. >> reporter: she recognized a need for change in her life. so she created an online community called girl's night in on self-care that reaches 150,000 readers weekly. >> a lot of our content is focused on friendships and how to strengthen friendships. also on the flip side of things, how to maintain boundaries with certain individuals in your life. >> reporter: ramos is part of the millions seeking answers. the self-care industry is $10 billion strong with a hashtag that returns more than 18 n sta.
8:22 am
don'tecri nto it could even extend to your relationships. i haven't seen my friend in a while, maybe i'll shoot he glty some time to figure out what makes you happy, what brgs >> our thanks to janai for that. dr. jen is back. >> for sure, robin. think of this on the spectrum of preventative medicine or think of it like taking your car in for maintenance before it actually breaks down. it is a major health trend right now as we just heard in the piece. and i think there are a lot of myths and misconceptions. it's not selfish. it's not about spending a lot of money. it's not just for women. men are doing it too. and it's not really just about yourself. it might involve giving or philanthropy, and it's really important. it's making quite an impact. >> i'm glad you said that, self-care is not selfish, not at all. >> for sure.
8:23 am
>> can you perhaps go a little too far? >> i think obviously you can. anything where we talk about on a spectrum has the propensity to go overboard. i think if it's taken to excess, that can be suboptimal. if you ignore basic health care practices just in favor of what you deem to be self-care, that's potentially risky. and with anything, if the risks outweigh the benefits of anything you're doing, not so good. >> okay, jen has a book that's coming out in december, "the self-care solution," so you know what you're talking about here. but how do we make it so it's not just checking another thing off the box? >> i learned do one thing at a time. the reason i started this self-care experiments is when i was at my lowest i felt that challenging myself month by month helped me feel better. i'll share that with our viewers and people can participate and hopefully it helps a lot of people. >> i'm sure it will. you always do. >> thank you. >> thanks so much. dr. jen will answer your questions about self-care on our facebook live. ginger, almost back to school time.

[ chee the the durels, such a special family. i've always been looking forward to sharing this with you. author sarah m. broom's "yellow house" takes us on a remarkable journey through new orleans, especially new orleans east, exploring her beloved childhood home destroyed by hurricane katrina. her tale is one of love, loss and resilience. she's going to join us in a moment. let's take a look at her story first. >> the yellow house was witness to our lives. when it fell down, something in me burst. >> reporter: after sarah broom's childhood home was destroyed by hurricane katrina, she was inspired to rebuild in a different way.
8:39 am
>> how to resurrect a house with words. >> reporter: this is sarah's mission in her new book "the ow house sarah grew up in new orleans east, seven miles outside of the french quarter. >> new orleans east is not a place you find on most of the tourist maps. >> reporter: today sarah is reclaiming the narrative of her city and her home. >> houses provide a frame that bears us up. without that physical structure, we are the house that bears itself up. i was now the house. >> such profound words. please welcome sarah broom here with us. [ cheers and applause ] >> thank you. >> full disclosure. we were having dinner in her home in harlem and she says i wrote this little book. i said send me an advanced copy. i read it and i'm amazed by it and then boom. but it took eight years. >> eight years. >> it was a labor of love, wasn't it? >> it really was, and it was
8:40 am
important for me to get it right, robin. this was a place my mother bought when she was 19 years old and so i had to do justice to the world that she built, you know. i'm the baby of 12 children. >> 12. i know, right? >> so she raised 12 human beings inside of this house. and when i was growing up, there were no stories of new orleans east. even when i was reporting this book, there weren't reference books. i wrote the book that i needed and that i wanted my nieces and nephews to read. >> you have like 50 of them, don't you? >> i have so many. nearly 50 of them. >> right, right, right. hopefully they'll add to the story. >> that's right. >> it inspires families and i'm inspired now to learn more about my family history. when you hear, yes, there's no place like home, it's the details.
8:41 am
a house is a house, but what makes it a home to you? >> for me it's beauty. that's the thing my mother taught me, is that you figure out what's beautiful for you and then you go out and you collect beauty, that no matter what you have we can all train our eyes upon a beautiful thing and get immense joy from it. so for me and where i live, i'm always collecting beautiful things. even if they don't match or they don't go. >> i didn't want to say that. when i was in your home i was like that doesn't go, but it was so warm and inviting. it was you. it's you, it's you. okay, it's august and those of us from down south and we have some folks from mississippi and new orleans, 14 years ago hurricane katrina and your home was destroyed by that and then later was completely, completely demolished by the city. you recently were able to go back. when you went back and just saw that lot, what was in your mind, in your heart when you saw that?
8:42 am
>> you know, robin, it was a profound feeling. when i went back, the only thing left that i could recognize was a single cedar tree that my father had planted before i was born. the rest of the lot was just green grass growing, and i thought to myself -- it was the first moment i understood why i wrote this book, because i thought, oh, this book tells the history of a place no one except me and or my siblings can see. and so for the kid who still lives on the street where i grew up, she will have a record, a history of what came before. >> yeah. what is your message? what do you want -- people reading this, what do you want them to have, the message to come away with? >> sure. i think for me it's really about what it means to love a place, that if we truly love a place and are tethered to a place, then it's our job to get to know
8:43 am
ac and to ok beyond othat official map, to not only go to the places that are the narrative but to go beyond those places. >> well, thank you for taking us on this incredible journey. >> thank you. [ applause ] >> because as you'll read, people outside of the family weren't really in this home. they weren't really welcome -- i wouldn't say not welcomed in the home but they weren't able to come into the home. but you take us on this extraordinary journey and you are an engaging guide so thank you for that. you for that.
