jim miklaszewski. >> reporter: at least one high-ranking american military official was killed in in attack, sudden attack at this training base for afghan soldiers in kabul. according to official, the americans along with german allies had gathers with afghans at this base for some kind of event or meeting when suddenly, one of the afghan soldiers, at least somebody dressed like an afghan soldier opened fire with an automatic weapon. as many as 12 were seriously wounded. right now, the death toll stands at one senior high-ranking military official killed. according to officials we're talking about here at the pentagon, some of the wounds are so severe that that death toll is likely to rise. >> i have to ask you. there was a time we were talking about the insider attacks all the time. it seemed like it was a downward trend.
this is a disturbing tre ining different direction. >> reporter: there were steps taken to put the americans in a safer position when working side by side with armed afghan soldiers. and that did lower the death toll some what. but, you know, working side by side with armed afghan military right now is absolutely critical to the u.s. strategy. in fact, it is the strategy going forward to work with armed afghan military to train them and advise them and there is no way that -- according to military official, that you can guard against this kind of attack at all times an unfortunate incident. according to a senior official here this one is really bad. >> jim miklaszewski, thank you. breaking news on the ebola crisis as well. the specially equipped plane bringing back the volunteer just refueled in bangor, maine, it's
now on the way to atlanta. kate snow is standing by at emory university hospital. >> reporter: the big question is, will nancy reibold walk into the facility behind me? we expect an ambulance motorcade. we're learning this morning more about the experimental drug treatment that nancy and kent brantly, who is being treated here, have had that may have saved their lives. this morning, nancy will arrive at emory hospital in the fight for her life. the 59-year-old american mother contracted ebola. she has been taking an experimental medication. >> her appetite has slightly come back. as a matter of fact, i talked to
her husband. she asked for her favorite liberian meal. >> reporter: the virus was ravaging her body. so three doses of an experimental medicine were flown to liberia and the two americans decided to try the treatment that had previously been used on monkeys. brantly told colleagues he was dying. his wife asked friends to drop everything and pray. after his first dose of medicine, he made a remarkable improvement. what sit that's working? >> when you and i are infected with any virus, we make anti-bodies for the virus. that kills it. these are special aent bodies just for ebola. >> reporter: once at emory,
they'll each have a room in a special isolation unit. lab tests are done inside. any contaminated materials are cleaned of virus and incinerated. while there are no other confirmed cases in the u.s. right now, hospitals are on edge. on monday, a man with a fever was put in isolation at new york's mount sinai hospital. this morning, we expect nancy's son, jeremy, to be here to greet her. he says the first thing he's going to say to her is i love you, followed by encouragement for her. we know god is good, we trust him, he said. >> nice to have her back in the country. thank you. >> earlier this morning, we talked to president obama's national security adviser. i began by asking if u.s. officials are confident that
this can be contained to africa. >> we are actively collaborating with our african partners in west africa to help them contain and address this challenge. we have surged up to 50 workers from the centers for disease control and our disaster response teams. we are actively helping them to detect and contain and manage the outbreak. the risk to americans is deemed by the centers for disease control to be very low. and that is because of the nature of the transmission and the fact that it is largely contained now in the west african region. this is not a disease that can be communicated by sneezing or airborne or food or water. it requires a degree of intimate contact. and it requires a person to be actively symptomatic. to be contagious. and we have the protocols in this country to manage any isolate any patient who may present with those symptoms of the disease.
>> i want to move on to the after leaders summit for which you are appears today. but let's turn to the news of the day. we just learned that israel and gaza have agreed to a temporary truce, this cease-fire. but then again we've seen them collapse within minutes or hours in the last couple of weeks. how confident are you that this time it's different and the cease-fire will hold? >> well, we think it's very important that it holds because there's been a great deal of suffering in israel and in gaza. and our hearts go out to the people of israel who suffered rocket attacks and tunnel attacks and of course the horrific suffering in gaza. so we are hopeful but mindful of the record that these cease-fires haven't held for very long in the past. we think it's very important both sides remain committed to it. and more importantly that they use this opportunity of the 72-hour cease-fire to begin the negotiations that we have been working so energetically through secretary kerry, president obama, and others to get off the
ground so that the underlying causes of the conflict in gaza can be addressed at the negotiating table. >> i mentioned this african leaders summit. all of these leaders coming to washington in an unprecedented way. part of this is to encourage business leaders in the u.s. to invest there in africa. but then we hear about the ebola virus. does that make it harder to sell -- of course it's just confine topd one region, but does it make it harder to sell the u.s. businesses that africa is ready for their investment? >> well, what makes this is a unique occasion is that first of all to start, we've never had a gathering of up to 50 african heads of state with the american president in history. and we are bringing together business leaders and society leaders, faith leaders all who understand the importance and potential of africa. today's event is truly unique because we have some of america's leading ceos, some of africa's leading ceos, all of whom understand, as do
many of our competitors overseas, that africa presents an extraordinary opportunity for trade and investment. and as we've seen instances of disease and obviously corruption remains a challenge, but what is changing is that african people and african businesses and african governments are poised to grow and to thrive. six of the ten fastest growing countries in the world are in africa. and american business leaders recognize that potential. african business leaders are eager to partner with their american counterparts and this poses an unprecedented opportunity to take that collaboration to a new level. >> well, national security adviser susan rice, it's great to have you with us. thank you. meantime, al you're following dangerous flooding. expecting more today? >> yes. take a look and a listen at this. >> get out! get out! >> this is just north of las vegas.
a flash flood, literally go two ins of rain. an airman get out. they rescue another cup. you can see the power of the water, literally washing a crown victoria and a pri r irksprius road. this is southern california, fiver inches of rain turned parts of the valley there into mud bogs. covering homes. one person was killed. we're going to continue to see more rain today. flood willing be a possibility in this area. stretching from the plains all the way back into northern california and northern nevada. flood watches for nevada, colorado, idaho. could be another two to four inches of rain. for the first time since 1982, we have two tropical storms
making their way to hawaii. hurricane iselle and tropical storm julio. we look for iselle to come across the big island sometime thursday as a category 1 storm. and continue on it way. then right on it heels, in time for the late week period, late weekend, early next week, we have julio. if it does become a hurricane, it will be minimal. probably a 1, because they are very good waters along this area. just to the south, much warmer air. that is more energy nfor the hurricane. we'll continue to track that. we haven't seen this in over 30 years. they're not used to it. >> california, a little bit of rain there, hoping it can help firefighters as they battle out of control wildfires. there are fears that lightning could spark more flames.
miguel almaguer is there. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. over the past 24 hours we have covered two different fire zones as crews do all they can to protect lives and properties. in this community, 70 structures are on the line. >> summer of 2014. we've got three fires burning. >> reporter: a front row seat to a raging wildfire. >> that's an angry fire. >> reporter: julian murphy watches as two massive fires threaten his property in northern california. evacuating his wife and kids to a neighbor's house. >> did you see that? >> yep. >> reporter: only to be evacuated again a few hours later. >> it just took off. i mean, there was fire tornadoes spinning up. the entire column was turning. >> reporter: the two fires sparked within a few miles of each other are bearing down on the town of burney. destroying eight homes, a local
restaurant, and a fire engine. in california, a state of emergency. 14 major wildfires. in oregon, air national guard pilots captured this spectacular scene above the gulch fire. meantime on the ground, crews attack the front lines near ashland. the fire burned right up to this ridge. crews are still mopping up hot spot. this is the fire break they've inserted. if the blaze hops it, it will make a run right up this mountain. a new study shows more homeowners are in harm's way than ever before. 1.2 million homes across 12 western states considered to be at high risk from wildfires. >> there are far more people in homes on the frontline of these wildfire risks. and the reason for this is that we've allowed more development in these high-risk areas. >> reporter: for homeowners like the murphy family, a hazard that used to be seasonal now a year-round way of life.
with if two wildfires burng here this morning, one is 20% contained, the over 0% contained. crews say they're making progress. the rain today will help. they're concerned about thunderstorms. the crews will be doing all they can to build the containment lines to snuff out remaining flames. >> miguel almaguer, thank you. natalie is here with a scare over great britain. >> fighter jets had to scramble to escort qatar airlines flight after a report of a possible device on the plane. armed police took the man off the plane with handcuffs. four people are recovering this morning, injured during severe turbulence on a flight over florida. the flight was headed from ft. lauderdale to asheville, north carolina, when it hit rough air
and went into a sudden dive. some passengers suffered minor injuries. the plane was diverted to st. pete-clearwater where it landed safely. russia is increasing its battalions on the russia/ukraine border. according to estimates, russia has battle-ready troops within just a few miles of the border. it comes as the ukrainian military has been gaining ground with separatists in the country. an incredible rescue on sunday, just 12 miles off the hawaiian island of moloka'i. all caught on gopro cameras. it's a dramatic rescue on the open seas all caught on gopro cameras. a 21-foot boat carrying four adults and four children battered by waives. >> it got scary rough real fast where waves were breaking over the bow. it happened really quick. before we knew it, too much
water was in the boat. and i rel lay couldn't steer well or maneuver. >> reporter: stranded and sinking 12 miles from the nearest shore, the eight passengers did the only thing they could. >> we knew it was going to go down, so we started getting anything we really needed like life jackets. i put my fins on and we all jumped in the water and the boat went over. >> reporter: they then detached three kayaks from the boat and tied them together, and activated a beacon that told teams of their distress and location. >> once we received the distress alert, we immediately launched a helicopter. >> reporter: hovering helicopters managed to grab the passengers from the sea. all eight escaped injury and now have the ultimate home video to prove it. >> it could have been bad. it really could have. you have to have a lot of respect for that ocean. >> and fortunately, a happy ending there. well, you know, you should not
be picking up hitchhikers, but probably okay in this case. a baby seal that needed a ride. he befriended a pair of surfers in the uk. he hopped on board the catch a few waves. hang ten. when they were done, the seal followed the surfers back to shore to wave good-bye. aw, i want to adopt that seal. >> i could watch all hour of that. >> al? >> we're all going upstairs for sardines. it's going to be great. let's show you what we're looking at today. scattered showers and thunderstorms. we have warmer weather and sunshine in the pacific northwest. showers in central and southern florida. look for rain in northern new england. and western pennsylvania. we'll have your local forecast and western pennsylvania. we'll have your local forecast

90s coming back for the second half of the week around the tri-valley. >> that's your latest weather. all right. we'll check in with tamron here. a lot of people comments on the ebola virus? >> yes. emory hospital is expecting to receive its second patient within an hour. the cdc hosted an online q & a session. 5,000 tweets came in. people asking normal, rational things. donald trump chimed in on his twitter feed. this is his most recent. the u.s. must immediately stop all flights from eboli-infected countries or the plague will spread inside our borders. he previously tweeted the patients shouldn't be brought back here to be treated. we have a lot of responses. chad says it's amazing how
someone with so many resources can sound so poorly informed. adds mentioned, trump did not want the patients brought back. obviously. the hospital is not listening to him. but barbara wrote. you're right about the ebola patients. it's a deadly virus. they should not bring them to the u.s. i do think a lot of good information came out of the chat with the cdc. the questions answers. let us know what you're thinking. #orangeroom. coming up, a live exclusive. the fired director of the famed ohio state marching band. why he's been unfairly blamed for what the university calls the band's sexualized culture. and here comes the drone? the hot new craze for wedding photography. why it may not be such a great idea. look out. oh. but first, this is "today" on

we begin with the recently fired director of the ohio state university marching band. he'll talk to us live if a moment. first, the investigation that the school says exposed sexually explicit and hazing rituals within the band. here's kevin tibbles. >> reporter: from superman soaring to t-rexs chomping. the ohio state marching band's fantastic formations earned it the nickname the best damn band in the land. but now, band director jonathan waters is out of a job, following the university's two-month investigation into the band's culture. in a statement late monday, an osu spokesman said the investigation revealed an environment conducive to sexual harassment. that waters was aware or reasonably should have known
about this culture and failed to eliminate it. >> it's pretty damning stuff. >> reporter: among the findings? written x-rated quizzes for new band members with questions like how many people have you had sex with. x-rated trips for band members. and sexually explicit nicknames. printed in direct ris and printed on t-shirts. waters played with the band in the '90s and in 2012 became the school's youngest band director. his attorney says waters started anti-sexual harassment and alcohol programs long before the university started its investigation. >> jon experienced inappropriate conduct when he was a rookie in the tuba section. as marching band director, he set out on his own to eradicate inappropriate behavior. >> reporter: as waters fights to clear his name, the band promises to march and play on. >> and jonathan waters is with us now. good morning. good to see you. >> good morning. >> let me ask the basic
question. do you feel scapegoated here, that you're being blamed for what amounts to apparently decades of a tradition, a culture within the band? >> indeed, this is an entrenched culture that dates back to the 1930s. you know, we have taken steps to eliminate activities in the band. and what is so shocking by this report is its inaccuracy and its one-sided nature. and so that's really what we're here to do today is to get the message out. that this report was one-sided. and i'm here to stand up for our students. >> let's talk about the report. it lays out inappropriate practices, sexually explicit names for band members. can't repeat them here. new band members ordered to simulate sex acts. newcomers to run down the bus aisles while upper classmen try to tear off their clothes. and questions about fell
bandmates. very, very sexual. were you aware of those practices? >> i was aware and i took great steps to eliminate them. we have eliminated all of those things. we've eliminated the midnight ramp. we have eliminated these rookie quizzes. let me be very clear that harassment of any type is not tolerated and should not be tolerated. and we have, as a staff, and as leadership team, taken steps to eliminate those behaviors. >> you know what the school says, though, that a lot of these changes like getting rid of the midnight ramp where they run out in their underwear. or sometimes naked and perform a ritual on the field. they say you didn't change that until after this investigation started. if you didn't like this culture which you say dates back decades, why didn't you end it on your first day? >> the culture in our band is entrenched. and because it's entrenched, it doesn't turn on a dime. so on my first day i did, indeed, engage with our leadership and our leadership team in trying to shape that
culture and trying to eliminate poor behaviors. we have instituted a wonderful program of leadership training for our student leaders as well as sex abuse training and alcohol abuse training. all of these trainings that we have instituted in our band have made it truly a better place since i've been the director. >> let me just press you on that. you're saying, it doesn't changeover night. it changes over time. you wanted change to come from within. why? you're the band director. i mean, this is nonsense, some of this. why don't you go in and say it's over. >> i have. i have, indeed. in fact, this report cites things that happened before my leadership of the band. >> you were assistant band director for ten years though. >> i was. and i did move to change those behaviors. but i couldn't effect total policy at that time. when i was director i assure you that we moved very quickly to take steps to complete these things. and i'm just very disappointed
that we didn't get a chance to finish that job. you know, all of our wonderful students, the message that i want to bring is the wonderful students who've marched in that band, the students who have sacrificed and given to the university, the alums who have given of their time, and the fans, they know that that report is flawed. they understand because as they read this report, they say this is not the band we know. >> i should mention you have a lot of support in this town. people have signed petitions. a lot of the former band members and current band members say they were not talked to for this report. they support you. what is your next step? will you sue the university to get your job back? you said this was your dream job. >> this was my dream job. i love ohio state. i love those students. i'm here to set the record straight. i'm here to point out the fact that we have taken tremendous steps to improve the culture and move the band forward. let me just put it in terms of this. you see the great performances on the field. you see the wonderful things
that the band has done. and that does not happen without an atmosphere of respect, camaraderie, discipline. all of those wonderful things that we see on the field were also happening in the hearts and souls of our band members. and that was done as a group effort. >> got to let you go, but to clear it up, will you try to get your job back? >> you know, i love ohio state and i would love an opportunity to work with the university to improve the culture. >> jonathan waters, thank you for your time. appreciate it. >> thank you. >> send it over to al for the weather. thank you so much. let's see what we've got for you as we look at the week ahead. above normal temperatures here in the east. wet weather in new england to the southwest. below normal temperatures along the west coast. then for a midweek period, above normal for the central plains into the southeast. it stays cool also along the great lakes. and above normal temperatures in the southeast.
going to be wet down into florida. and the below normal temperatures continue out west. . the reason why we're seeing below average temperatures, cloud cover and yes rare august rain falling in parts of the bay area. most of this morning around the tri-valley and up tards contra costa county. heading into livermore, light showers there around danville, slowly heading off towards the south and east. today, highs in the 80s. 60s to near 70 around san francisco. slight chance of an isolated thundershower north of santa rosa. mid-80s closer to pleasanton. warm up, low 90s back in the tri-valley beginning tomorrow. >> that's your latest weather. still ahead on "trending," a heart warmer. what taylor swift did to brighten one boy's day. but up next, would you want this flying on your wedding day? the buzz surrounding the hot new wedding accessory. that's right, the drone. right after this.

my doctor told me about eliquis for three important reasons. one, in a clinical trial eliquis was proven to reduce the risk of stroke better than warfarin. two, eliquis had less major bleeding than warfarin. and three, unlike warfarin there's no routine blood testing. [ male announcer ] don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis you may bruise more easily and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. those three important reasons are why i'm shooting for something better. eliquis.

back now at 7:44 with the latest way to remember your wedding day. more couples are now turning to drones for help. kerry sanders joins us from downtown miami with more. kerry, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, carson. i'm inside the alfred dupont building. this location is a popular venue for people to have weddings. enter the drones. yes, it can be a little noisy indoors, but outdoors not so much. as you see the drone going up, on board there's a camera. and that camera can provide a unique angle that folks getting married say they must have as an ever lasting memory for the wedding album. it's all the rage. spectacular drone images posted on youtube. the uncommon angles intoxicating to an amateur audience that has only seen footage like this in the movies. last week martha stewart posted
pictures from her drone. photos of her new york estate. with drones costing as little as $80, it was only a matter of time before they started making the guest list. for today's newlyweds, capturing that special day like this is about being different and cutting edge. >> it's neat we have one of a kind photos from our wedding day that no one else has had before. >> reporter: new york democratic congressman shawn maloney hired a drone photographer for his wedding recently. an especially glaring problem because the faa says commercial drone photography is illegal and the congressman sits on the committee. which would allow friends to take pictures from his drone at no charge. >> the faa has been dragging their feet on this. the more they wait, the more people are flying without rules. >> reporter: a drone literally
crashed a wedding when a photographer flying a drone lost control leading to a painful bump and a minor cut to the groom. yet despite the risks, wedding photographers say increasingly they're hearing requests for drones. but veteran photographer carl bies says the weddings he shoots is about respect and not turning it into a flying circus. >> the biggest compliment is they don't remember me photographing their wedding. i think having a drone there would leave a mark on people remembering that one sound of the drone buzzing above. >> reporter: the faa reports increasingly that they're hearing from commercial passenger pilots about drones that are in or near their flight path, and that is a safety concern. how is it we're able to fly a drone here this morning? it's because we're indoors. and this air space here is not controlled by the faa.
this is all legal. the faa says they hope to have new regulations in place within the coming year for drones. some which you can see are so small they fit in the palm of my hand. >> that is cool. i want that one right there. >> did you say something, kerry? i couldn't hear you over the drone. >> those aren't drones. those are mosquitoes coming. revenge. >> at least they don't bite, kerry. >> thank you so much. >> kerry can't hear. it's so loud. >> another thing to be double charged for at a wedding. coming up, proof that kids say the darnedest things. plus tamron getting ready for hoda's big backup singing debut. it is happening, people. ri

♪. here's savannah guthrie. >> good morning. we have breaking news this morning from afghanistan. a deadly attack at a military base by a gunman wearing a military uniform. among the victims a two star army general. two others have been wounded. we want to go to the pentagon with mick for the latest. >> u.s. dod and u.s. military officials confirm a two star u.s. major general was killed in that assault today in kabul. according to the officials, they
are not going to release the identity of that major general until sometime tomorrow officially. in addition, there were two others killed. they're believed to be perhaps afghan or even german officers that were there. the shooting occurred at the afghan national military defense academy. a training facility where the americans, other forces and afghan leadership had gathered to talk about the training regimen for the afghan military when suddenly one individual, believed to be an afghan soldier, sprayed the crowd with an automatic weapon killing the two star general and wounding at least 15 other americans. u.s. officials caution that the overall death toll could rise because of the severity of the injuries. by the way, in return fire, that gunman was also killed. no motive for that attack a. those kind of green and blue incidents where afghans attack
their u.s. military trainers have really subsided in the past several years. but according to u.s. military officials, you can never protect those troops when they're side by side with armed afghan military 100% of the time. according to one senior d.o.d. official in remarks about this incident told us this savannah is a bad one. >> standing by at the pentagon, i want to return to retired colonel jack jacobs on the phone. to pick up what mick talked about, there was a time in 2012 where afghan soldiers would turn on the coalition forces trying to train them. it was quite common, have become more rare. our withdrawal of the troops of afghanistan is predicated on training these afghan forces.
>> i spent time in vietnam as an advisor. there were incidents from time to time with soldiers turning on their own troops or advisors. it happened very rarely. almost never was it a function of the soldiers being complacent. that's probably here. frequently these things happen as a result of troops being annoyed that their assignments or not getting paid or just some personal animosity and rarely a function of there being a plant from the other side. it's very disturbing in any case. particularly so since we've spent a great deal of time and money training these troops. >> a sad story we hear about a terrible attack at a military academy in afghanistan. a high ranking army general among the dead this morning.

back now at 8:11 as megan fox is making herself at home in my orange room. feel free to move in. nice to have you here. we'll catch up with her in a bit, but first here's "what's trending" today. >> a new ad campaign from nine west the shoe store is getting off on the wrong foot with a lot of women. here's why. look at the website. it's got a collection called shoe occasion. right now it has two categories. elsewhere you may see print ads highlighting the walk of shame collection. so now some bloggers are really saying this campaign is sexist. they said they're just trying to stay current.
>> i don't like the name of the collection. >> they're trying to have a sense of humor about it, but maybe more category than just those two. >> those campaigns that make you think. kind of edgy. >> you know, i think you should empower women. how about the board room shoe. >> kenneth cole shoes bring awareness to aids and homelessness. not finding a husband. >> maybe they'll add more categories. >> ceo shoes. >> it's a big day. scientists are finally revealing the key to happiness. are you ready? >> yes. >> i can actually show it to you. here it is. sorry. so researchers at university college london -- that's right -- use this math equation to get the answer. >> i feel great. >> here's what it means. the key to happiness is low
expectations. scientists say it doesn't matter if things are going well, it matters if they're going better than you expect. lower your expectations. >> it's like if you think the weather is going to be terrible on the weekend and you're going on vacation and you find out it's sunny, you're happy. >> right. >> i thought that would be fine. everything else has happened. this is just gravy. >> okay. well, taylor swift really likes to surprise her fans as we know. but she did something that one little boy will never forget. taylor turning up to visit one of her biggest fans. he's a 6-year-old little boy jordan who's battling leukemia. jordan took taylor on a tour around boston's children hospital. >> they also got to play air hockey and teamed up for a memorable duet you have to see. ♪ never ever ever get back together ♪
>> i think i've looked at this a hundred times. taylor and jordan also found time to talk about one of his favorite subjects, of course it's spider-man. jordan's family saying the surprise visit brightened their day. we also look at comments. look at what people have said about this video. it's so cute. >> so good. >> just wonderful. well, there's another little guy who's winning the internet this morning for another reason. a boy from pennsylvania was at a county fair recently when a tv crew stopped to ask him about a ride. >> it was great. i've never been on live television before. but i don't watch the news because i'm a kid. and apparently every time -- grandpa gives me the remote. i watch the power ball. >> there you go. >> i never be on television. >> are you excited? >> yeah.

all right. we are back with those heroes in a half shell returning to the big screen. megan fox stars at april o'neil in an action packed reboot of the teenage mutant ninja turtles franchise. she's with us this morning. how are you? >> good morning. . >> is it true you had a big crush on one of is the turtles as a young girl? >> yeah. mikey. i don't know if you knew which one he was, he had the orange. yeah, he was just the funny one, the carefree one. you know, he's not trying to be the leader or trying to be -- he's just trying to be himself.
it's charming. >> i understand you are a big fan of the franchise. obviously mikey as well. did you have to fight to get cast in this movie. >> well, i went in for a meeting and it was valentine's day. i stayed for five hours to prove i was a superfan. then i sent out a bunch of e-mails saying i understand if you cast someone else, but know i'm still going to be at the first day midnight showing because it's going to be the best ever. >> you should have sent them pizza. >> man, where were you when i was trying to get this movie? >> there you are in this movie. you play april the news reporter covering the story of a lifetime. question to you, the director said he's looking for someone who is obviously beautiful and capable, but not just a traditional damsel in distress. something that more than meets the eye.
>> he likes to say that about me because that's the transformers theme song. but it's important for him not to sexualize april at all or exploit her or do gratuitous shots especially with me in the character. the point of the movie is she's saying what i'm seeing is real. you've got to take my story seriously. she's aspiring to do bigger things. we didn't want to undercut that. >> obviously there are huge fans of this franchise. >> yes. >> they can be very outspoken and vocal. some of them were already criticizing the reboot of this before it was out. you had some choice words for them recently. >> i did. but you cannot say them on the show. >> but i can paraphrase. you said buzz off. >> something like that. yeah. i mean, i was asked about the fans -- they're not fans, they're haters really. that say it's ruining my childhood. i said you know what? how much money did these movies make, obviously these people go
see these movies and they're going to see this one. if you don't like it, then, you know, go have a steak or whatever you say. i don't know. >> again, your earlier words were more to the point. >> but i know better than to say that on this show. >> thank you. tell me about what's going on at home. you've got two little boys with your husband brian green. they keep you busy all the time? >> yeah. my oldest is not two years old. and my baby is turning six months here. is this your first? >> it is. >> so you have no idea and you probably haven't been sleeping because you're pregnant and you're uncomfortable. you're never going to sleep again. so congratulations. >> i thought i was going to do nothing but rest from here on out. >> you have no idea what you're in for. >> are you trying to make me cry? >> i know it's easy to do right now because you're so close. but we're exhausted but it's fun and amazing and they're both special boys.
i'm lucky. >> you were about two weeks pregnant when you first started doing this role. >> well, i got pregnant ten days in. >> did you do your stunts while you were pregnant? >> i did. i tried to do most of them. there were some i couldn't do like wire work because it's a legal issue. i had an amazing stunt woman who's much more talented than me at that. she did it when i needed her to. but i tried. oh, there's video of me doing a stunt. >> there you are. while pregnant. >> there's a fan blowing my hair and i'm like, rafael no! >> a little preview of teenage mutant ninja turtles. >> it's so much better than that. >> megan fox, a delight. i'm going to go cry now. >> okay. >> we'll send it to carson. >> thank you very much. now to our special series this is 50 as we celebrate hoda's mild stone birthday. our new survey found out that more than 60% of single people in their 50s are either currently dating or they're considering it.
hoda is an expert on that. >> how do you know? dating is weird at any age, but it gets extra daunting when you hit the big 5-0 milestone. the pool changes, it gets smaller. i decided to sit down with a group of women. some divorced, some never married. we wanted to have a candid conversation about the ups and downs and challenges of finding a companion. take a look. meet the single ladies all ready to play the dating game. >> allison. >> susan. >> ivy. >> joyce. >> laurie. >> six women with six journeys all navigating the world of relationship and love. raise your hand if you enjoy dating. >> one up, one down. >> sometimes. describe what it is like to date in your 50s. >> it's really starting over and starting at a different place.
>> at a certain age, for the women it dries up -- the pickings dry up. the men in the same age group want to date the younger women. and the men older than me that might want to date me are, you know, dead. >> sometimes for this group it's a matter of taking the plunge. >> it does take courage, doesn't it, to get back in there? because we're used to our lives. >> it's a scary experience to set yourself up for rejection again. >> i can't help but be myself on dates now. i don't know how to go back to that giggling girl that didn't know what she wanted or what she was interested in and just wanted to be liked by the best looking guy. >> i'll dare myself to flirt. >> it's hard sometimes. >> it is, but you know what? when you have nothing to lose, it's just kind of fun. >> but to get there, it may mean leaving that comfort zone. i've talked myself out of going out to anything sometimes because you're like, i can't. i have to put the dress on and
meet someone. and i would think to myself i know who i'm going to meet in my apartment watching a rerun of "law & order." nobody. i don't know who i'm going to meet if i step out the door. and sometimes it's just showing up. isn't it? sometimes you have to put yourself back in the game. but that takes confidence. >> sometimes i'll feel very positive and optimistic and i'll go online or i'll meet someone at a party and that will go along okay. and then i'll get discouraged and go back into hiding. >> sometimes a little expert advice goes a long way. >> you can meet men everywhere and anywhere. >> meeting dating coach bobby palmer. >> really focus on you and what you have to offer and what you want to give and what a great relationship looks like and feels like to you. every date you go on is not going to be magical. you can go on a lot of dates before you find the one. >> we asked bobby to run a mini
boot camp to help our women. >> taking responsibility for your actions and outcomes. >> when it was finally time for susan's big date, she was able to use some of her new boot camp skills. >> it's just about having fun with people and sharing. >> bobby weighed in working with susan to negotiate the nuances of scoring a successful date. >> you know, the third principle is taking responsibility for your actions and outcomes. and you nailed it. nailed it. >> well, it was fun. >> for all the women it's a delicate balance of caution and confidence. what advice do you have about finding love the second or third time around? >> this is the best time in life to find love. we know ourselves so much better. >> it's a game that's well worth playing and winning. >> instead of waiting to be chosen, i remind myself now that i'm doing the choosing. >> yes.
you get to choose. >> it's about you. how do you feel when they say certain things? do you feel safe? do you feel adore? how do you feel? it's about deciding how they make you feel. >> i got to tell you, sitting down with those women was so empowering. you saw these people putting themselves out there and it is hard. >> she said it right. it's about you. you have to feel good about yourself to go out in a setting of 50-plus. however the actions are coming in from the guys, you have to take it with confidence. >> and remember when you had past relationships that were crummy, you can't take it out on the guys you're meeting. sometimes you're like you're probably just like he was or they were. >> and it helps to be hot like hoda. you can't have any problems. >> just wear a bikini. >> they did say one of the myths is -- and this is what bobby said -- men in their 50s or older only want 20-somethings. that's what you see.
but statistics don't bear that out. so i said, please, these guys aren't a very good morning to you. it is 8:26. i'm laura garcia-cannon. a missing sailor whose salmon bo boat washed ashore is now in hiding. yesterday, his fishing boat ran aground along the san francisco shoreline. now crews are trying to haul away a boat that's been spilling fuel for more than 24 hours. traffic's flowing nicely and we had a backup at 580 and el charo, or just before you get to el charo. things are starting to get better now. we had an earlier crash, which has cleared over the last 20 minutes. it happened and then it cleared. that's not bad for traffic tuesday around the dublin interchange.
looking at the south bay, where northbound 87 continues to show a heavier flow than the rest. that's an early clearup for the south bay as well. the bay bridge toll plaza, the metering lights are still on. a slower drive north through oakland as well as across that san mateo bridge at the bottom of your screen. we'll send it back to you, laura. >> thank you very much. thank you for joining us as well. another update comes up in about half an hour. hope you get a chance to enjoy your tuesday morning.

you're making us dizzy. >> you did not eat breakfast before the trampoline session? >> you have to eat breakfast but not too early. >> has your big brother taught you about getting ready for the olympics? and are you ready? >> yeah. i'm ready for my shot. well, going into 2012, it was a close, tight race. i'm just waiting for a spot. and not dwelling on anything in the past and just looking forward towards the future. >> we hope to see both of you gentleman there. remember those names. >> all right. coming up, we've been waiting all morning for this. hoda is living out her dream of becoming a backup singer with help of kathie lee and kenny loggins. >> but first al with a check of the weather. >> here's what we've got for you. starting with today we're looking at wet weather into the

this morning and the north bay. and through this afternoon, partly cloudy skies around san jose, where we'll see 80s, closer to 70 into san francisco, and in the north bay, highs into the mid-70s. slight chance of an afternoon thunderstorm north of santa rosa and still scattered showers around the tri-valley. skies clear later tomorrow. 90s coming back to the tri-valley later this week. toot update in 30 minutes.
from nbc news, this is "today's take" with al roker, natalie morales, willie geist, and tamron hall live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. >> savannah guthrie just blew through there. >> i'm impressed she is sprint still. >> in heels. goodness. >> also impressive, our crowd. august 5th, 2014. i'm al along with natalie and tamron. willie is off. >> welcome back. >> thank you very much. did you see "guardians of the gala galaxy." it made $94 million this weekend. >> it's so fun. lots of '80s references. great stuff for the parents, not just the kids. >> i love that perfect combo
when it's funny for the kids but adults get it too. >> chris pratt, he just blew that up. he was amazing. >> and everyone's popping up in the movie, a lot of celebrities in this. >> you will not recognize bradley cooper's voice. he plays a raccoon, but he's unbelievable. so great. it's fantastic. anyway, must go see. meanwhile, a big story we're also talking about the latest on the ebola virus. the latest victim nancy writebol is soon to arrive at emory hospital in atlanta. her plane briefly stopping in maine there for a refuel. and the hospital already treating as you know dr. kent brantly. he's the other american victim. writebol and brantly have received doses of an experimental medication never before used on humans and doctors are calling their progress miraculous because of
this vaccine that they had. meantime, little bit of a scare here in new york yesterday. a man with a high fever had recently travelled to west africa, returned to new york and went to the hospital. he had signs of gastrointestinal disorder and a high fever. so he went to new york's mt. sinai hospital and they immediately started treating him and raised concerns because of where he traveled. but they said it's unlikely he has ebola. they feel they don't believe it's actually the ebola virus. but it is raising concerns and questions. of course the cdc saying here are the things you need to watch out for. telling people what the symptoms are. >> and also putting it into realistic perspective. you can have symptoms but they don't want people to believe everything that fits into what you've heard, fever, upset stomach. >> a transmission is very
difficult. >> bodily fluid. >> you can't just catch it by touching somebody. >> it's not airborne. it's exchanged through bodily fluids. i think matt lauer said we idolize athletes, but researchers on the forefront of creating this serum, for example, that we're just learning about and other infectious diseases, they are 24/7 looking at ways to cure these deadly diseases that affect the globe. it's so intriguing. >> sometimes putting their own lives on the line. >> and people like nancy writebol who went there as a missionary and was basically helping clean and decontaminate the areas that are effected. and dr. brantly there to treat the patients. they really are heroes and deserve the best care and treatment which they're getting now. >> the other thing, there's an amazing piece of video. let's just roll it. i want you to hear this from the top. there's a flash flood in las
vegas. >> get out! get out! >> about four inches of rainfall. >> it's like a river. >> it turns this road into -- >> look at the guy. >> you see from the nearby base get out of his car. and another group of airmen rescue folks out of this prius. you see the crown vic. that prius really amazing stuff. they had flash floods in southern california yesterday. one person was killed. in the meantime, we've got these wildfires going on continuing out west. a state of emergency, 14 major wildfires going on at the same time. air national guard pilots captured that scene above the gulch fire. and there's one whole town that is getting ready that's on alert to evacuate in northern california. but they're still worried about this. because lightning strikes could
set off more wildfires. as many of these have been set off by lightning strikes. >> we see flash flooding often, but such a tremendous force of power. you wonder how much time they had. no time. >> three inches of water is enough to knock you off your feet. a foot of water is enough to move a car. >> and people think they're in suvs and they can get through that. you really can't. >> that's why it's turn around, don't drown. this became a raging river in a matter of about five minutes. >> another story that a lot of people are reacting to. ohio state university, their amazing band considered by all accounts one of the best college bands in the country. i think they might be the best. you know, there's a controversy hovering over the band after allegations that students were
hazed, sexual harassment amongst band members. the band's director was let go, jonathan waters. he's now the former band director. he was fired to weeks ago after an investigation found a culture of harassment and alcohol abuse. students mimic sex acts. just a laundry list of things as a parent it's your worst nightmare. you send your kid to college and this happens. anyway, savannah spoke to waters on why he did not stop this culture. here's what he said. >> and because it's entrenched it doesn't turn on a dime. and so on this first day, i did, indeed, engage with our leadership and our leadership team in trying to shape that culture and trying to eliminate poor behaviors. we instituted a wonderful program of leadership training for our student leaders as well
as sex abuse training and alcohol abuse training. all of these trainings that have instituted in our band has made it truly a better place since i've been director. >> in a statement late monday, a spokesperson said the investigation said waters was aware or should have known about the culture but failed to eliminate it. he was a band member back in the day. then he became an assistant director and then the direct. >> assistant director for ten years, so he knew what was going on there. i'm sorry, you're the band director. day one you just come in and you say it's done. no more. >> you say you're a scapegoat when you've been a part of that culture for so many years. >> i don't like to read into people, you get under the hot lights of a studio, you're being interviewed. but i wish he had said, parents, trust me. i wasn't aware. just something more heart felt. >> but he was aware.
>> i'm saying whatever his stance is, he's saying you can't turn around the titanic or whatever. i just needed more emotion. because what some of these students went through is frightening and they don't deserve that. i wanted more heart from him. >> pretty horrific and clear cases of allegations of abuse. all right. this happened to me the other day. has this happened to you guys? you're walking down the street -- i think this happens more to women, not guys. you walk down the street and a complete stranger says hey, pretty lady, why don't you smile. do you get this? smile, al. well, it happened to me. i was at the airport thinking i got to get home and get my bag. and a guy said with such a pretty face, you should put a smile on it. i was like, okay, creep. anyway, this was a schedule on "the huffington post." they started this discussion.
but rachel krans photographed women when they're told to smile. first, because i'm intimidated by you. another, because i'm worried about finding a job when i graduate. reasons, perhaps, why i'm not smiling. and i smile all the time, if i'm not it's just because i'm tired. which is probably what a lot of us would say. what would you respond? >> what would i write? usually if i'm not smiling with -- because i think i smile a lot probably to the point people think i'm ill. >> on the street? >> yeah. random thoughts. you're preoccupied. but usually i think -- >> but it is true. i do think about, you know, what you put out there. it's hard. it is weird though. >> because you are a stranger
danger. >> i'm busy. get out of my way. >> i think your point, i don't think it happens to guys. >> actually, i have had people say you know you seem so happy on tv, why aren't you smiling? well, i'm thinking about something else. >> people to get to and things to do. >> i was walking the other day and these guys were probably the nicest guys in the world, but there were ten guys on one side of the street. i'm faced with this dilemma. do i walk past or cross the street? i crossed the street. >> the little tamron walk. >> jiggling it all. >> a lord of the dance, you know. >> just smile and talk to myself. >> i'm walking across, i'm smiling, i'm a little nutty. so you might not want to stop and talk to me. anyway, because that's what i do all the time. hey. we're looking at more rain out
west. so we may see some more flooding out there. especially anywhere from a half inch to an inch or more of rain. and in places where it has already been inundated, it's going to be a problem. we've also got double trouble. first time since 1982 we've got the potential for two hurricanes affecting hawaii. first we've got iselle 1115 miles east of hilo. also tropical storm julio. so iselle makes its way and started to come across hilo right around thursday. and then continue on. and then right behind that, we're going to be watching julio. it should be a minimal hurricane when it comes on shore, but we will continue to m and we're seeing some unusual weather of our own with showers in the north bay, lake county into northern napa county, and what's left of the showers around east bay hills have wound down for the moment. and today we'll see temperatures in the 80s around the south bay,
partly cloudy skies. still a chance of an isolated shower around the peninsula, up into the north bay, where there is a slight chance of some thunder north of santa rosa this afternoon. mid-80s around pleasanton, with showers shutting down for tomorrow morning, drying out and warming up as we head towards the beginning of the weekend, with those inland temperatures in the tri-valley. back into the 90s for the second half of the week. >> and that's your latest weather. all right. we are calling all of you home chefs. if you have a recipe for a healthy and delicious treat you've been enjoying all summer, we want to hear from you. submit your creation for the chance to come to new york and help whip it up right here for joy bauer and all of us on the air. >> has to be healthy. >> low cal. send it on. >> please let it be tasty. >> i can't wait to taste it. all right. up next, how one of baseball's biggest stars darryl strawberry,

became a different person. that's what we all really want. i wanted to know who i was. >> you wanted to be different and better. tracy, what made you believe in him? here you were living in the basement of your family's home. you called yo urs a spouse in waiting. what made you believe he could turn all of this around and be your husband? >> i believed in the greatness in darryl. his heart has always been revealed. he has a great heart. he had issues, though. he had to make the choice to get well. there's a chapter in this called the spouse in waiting. >> what does that mean? >> that means when you are doing the right thing and you're walking the right way and your spouse has not. your spouse has checked out. and that's several people. in this book we've suffered adultery, addiction, everything. and maybe people haven't gone down that far, but we challenge reede readers to get real with themselves. even if you haven't gone down as far as we have, you can still make this work.
>> most people who go that far down the road, that road usually leads to divorce. why didn't it happen for you guys? >> well, i think because we put principles. we put biblical principles in our life and god at the center of our life. a lot of times we're so selfish, people are so selfish. it's about us, us, us. what i realized, it had had to be a me first. i had to get me well first because it's a we. i think a lot of times we come in and want this great marriage and white picket fence that life is going to go great. but there's a lot of rooted issues from childhood or something that i needed to deal with. i think when we all deal with our issues, it brings us together. and then there could be a we. it's got to be a me and then a we. >> it's a fascinating read. i think a lot of people can learn so much from your story. darryl and tracy strawberry, thank you for sharing it with us. you can read an excerpt on today.com. up next we've got all the

"tammy." >> now find him in "the one i love." we call it rom com drama with a big plot twist. but we can't tell you what it is. we bring mark on because he can't really tell us what it's all about either except to say this is sort of a love story where people find their best selves. >> i think that's a good way to put it. i'm not allowed to talk about the movie. so you just keep talking about it. >> there's a plot twist we're trying to get around. >> yeah. we're not talking about, like, you know, the sixth sense or anything. >> you're not going to give it away. >> it's not a crying game situation. we're good. >> wow. >> we're all good. but basically it's sort of an examination of what it's like at the beginning of your relationship when everything is wonderful and you present that best version of yourself to people. you talk about how you like to go to museums when really you're
just like streaming "game of thrones." >> yeah. you say what you think they want to hear. >> what they want to hear. then three months later you eventually find out, oh, wow. you're really not at all who you said you were. and then how do you reconcile those things? and that way it's a lot like marriage. >> nice. you never have so much as a script as a 50-page outline. for some folks that would be terrifying. >> it can be terrifying and you can fall flat on your face, which is part of the fun. but all dialogue in the film is improvised. hopefully it gives you a sense of spontaneity and freshness. really these movies live and die by the chemistry. you know? and while i knew that elizabeth would be extremely attracted to me, you know -- >> of course. who wouldn't? >> i had to make sure there was enough material for me to be into her. >> and that worked out okay? >> it's tough. i've got to say, it's tough. >> especially when you have a wife that also works with you on your other show, "the league."
how is that working with your spouse especially when your other costars fall madly in love with you? >> it's always happening. >> it's happening right now. >> with you? >> i'm in love with him. >> i thought so. >> felt the heat. >> feeling the heat, al. so on the show "the league," it's interesting because my wife doesn't play my wife on the show. i'm single on the show, and she's married to steve who is a lovely gentleman who makes out with my wife all the time on the show who i really just hate him personally. no, i'm kidding. >> but you love al. >> all right. we'll work on that scent, al. we'll really get there. >> you are incredible that you can keep a straight face with this one staring at you. >> it's what you have to do. >> you can ad-lib an entire movie, so you can work through that. >> al was in my dressing room

>> it's different from a conventional oven because there's a fan attached to the heating element. that means instead of the heat being stationary and just working off the radiant heat from the walls, the fan is blowing the hot air around so it cooks super evenly and a little bit hotter. >> natalie says she's obsessed with it as well. i have a small kitchen and this allowed me -- al got me a grill. i can grill a steak. then i throw in my vegetables and prepare those all at once without heating up my kitchen. that's why i love it. >> and you get all the benefits of a regular wall oven. >> my guests are hungry. i've prepared one of my favorite things. >> steak? >> where's the protein? >> so vegetables. one of my recipes i learned from a dear friend is two tablespoons of cumin and one of curry. i don't have a favorite brand or
anything. and so what i do is drizzle olive oil on this, then this with a bit of salt. i don't pretend to be martha stewart, although i do pretend. i do it at 400 for about 15 minutes. >> the only thing to keep in mind with the convection oven is it's hotter in there. that's heavy. >> it is. >> so if you want to -- if you're go i think to use convection, reduce the time you're baking or roasting. >> it's different. 400 is different from conventional to convection. >> that's right. reduce the temperature by 25 degrees. instead of 400 roast at 375. >> now, these are scones. i make scones every weekend. meyer lemon scones. we have a picture of what i cooked this past weekend in my convection oven. that's not what i cooked.
that's me. i did bake eggs this weekend and i do scones. and they turn out wonderfully. >> the great thing about baking in -- you know, when you're baking in a traditional oven most ovens have hot spots. that's why you have to rotate your trays. >> keep rotating. >> i will keep chatting about this on twitter. we'll have more for you next tuesday in my trends. this "today" on nbc.

10 years old. he had stage three brain cancer. he came out of it better than ever. he saw me in the park, handed me a note. can you believe this kid is 18? >> no, i thought he was with morgan stanley or something. >> i work for fox connecticut news in hartford. when i saw you running, i said, i have to meet hoda kotb. i watched where why you were running, wrote a note, and now i'm in studio 1a. >> in other words, you're a stalker. >> you got that right. exactly. >> i saved your letter because it was so beautiful. i put it in my little phone thing. >> it's a miracle you found it. >> i save certain things. >> you don't want to show that phone number again. you know what happened the first time. >> this kid is going to be huge. he's like al michaels. look. that's al michaels right there. >> all right. thanks. so it is national underwear day. >> are you wearing any? >> i always do. unless i forget some.

the wrong bra size. >> including me right now. >> people always talk about that. anyway -- >> i saw this in the paper the other day. if you're offended by this, you may hold me accountable. >> but let's do our disclaimer. >> we're apologizing ahead of time. >> what you're going to see are peaches. they're fruit. >> allegedly. >> no, they're fruit. so don't freak out. >> it's a fruit seller in china. watch. >> she put underwear on peaches. she calls them peaches panties. >> i think it's genius. and you can actually send someone a box of nine peaches in panties for around $65. that's just brilliant marketing. >> here's what he says. the creator claims they're sweet, tasty, sexy, and funny and there's nothing tacky about them. >> not at all now that you know it's a peach. >> people are about to write in. >> they're peaches! >> stop writing us. >> some are more peachy than

this up. i want to give credit to hoda about this. say what you were thinking. >> i just said maybe the girl was just being a real pain in the neck and the mother says, look, i'm telling you right now, one more word and i'm going to put these tickets and sell them on facebook. and the mother pushed the button. maybe that's how it happened. >> you know, any time -- it seems harsh, but she's not beating her. don't beat your children. and you have to be very, very careful because those things live forever. if you're a loving parent -- i bet she wants it back now, even though she did get $90 for the tickets. >> here's another reason to love taylor swift. she visits often kids in the hospital. she visited this young child who's going through -- at boston's childrens hospital. taylor showed up and gave him a little impromptu concert. let's take a look. ♪ we are never ever ever getting

economy. they end up packing their days and their holidays. >> it's true. what people forget is that actually taking time off is not only better for you physically, but mentally. chronic stress can give you heart disease. it can give you all sorts of illnesses. you owe it to yourself and to your body to take time off. >> but then people don't. they might take a vacation, but they take all of their social media stuff with them. >> or their work stuff. >> they're just in a different place doing the same amount of work. before e-mails, returning a thousand e-mails, what did people do? >> right. >> how did they get it done? >> well, i think that goes back to the very original point that you made. what's important. i think that's one of the things of all of this flood of information and technology, you're always feeling behind and that you can never catch up. >> letting somebody down. >> i know people are probably nodding their heads. so a to-do list. let me write all the things i
have to do and i'll check them off and alleviate some stress. no? >> that's sabotaging yourself. one of the most important things to do is remember your working memory can only hold seven pieces of information at a time. >> that's on a good day. >> write everything down, do a brain dump. but when you come to figure out what you're going to do, choose one thing that's most important and do that first. let everything else slide. >> what do you do when you have the boss calling you saying, where is that whatever i expected an hour ago? we have to answer to so many people. i didn't know the statistic you just said that we're spending more time with our children? >> yes, working mothers spend more time with their kids than stay-at-home mothers did in the '60s and '70s. >> interesting. the brain dump is interesting. we're trying to think of solutions. give us some -- what's an idea? if you're feeling overwhelmed with your kids and life, what are things people can do to alleviate that a little bit? >> well, to go back to the vacation thing for a moment, i feel like that's part of it.
whether you can only take a three-day weekend or you have your summer off, you're a mom, you can take a couple of weeks just to be with your kids, plan it in advance. 90% of people say they've had a great vacation because they've planned it a month in advance. and if you're working, you know, obviously ask for the time off, but then ten days before you go, remind everyone in your office that you're going to be gone. so no one is jumping at you. >> does anybody do voicemail anymore besides me? >> you should do an out-of-office alert because it builds you a little cushion of time. >> i also find if you follow that be here now, wherever you are you're here, you're less stressed because you're not spending all your time -- you know how you are. don't tell me about the next three things i have to do. just right now. suddenly you don't feel so overburdened with everything that's coming later. >> another thing that's important is to recognize you don't have to earn it. a lot of times women in particular throughout history have felt like they need to earn time off. they don't deserve it.
and you need to flip that. you deserve it and need to give yourself permission. >> by the way, your voicemail is full. >> i know. it's been full for two weeks. >> ladies, thanks. bobbi thomas shares is her very personal journey through ivf. >> and rick, chuck, and bob are here to answer your relationship questions. who's going to be in the fourth chair? it's a surprise. shingles affected me tremendously as a pilot. the pain in my scalp area and down the back of my neck was intense. it would have been virtually impossible in that confined space to move to change radio frequencies. i mean it hurt. i couldn't even get up and drive let alone teach somebody and be responsible in an airplane. as a pilot that meant i was grounded. ifyou may be muddlingble withrough allergies.nger...

>> that's a horrible generality. everyone in general is thoughtful and romantic. >> not everyone. >> that's not true. >> i think you can teach a guy these things, but you have to have patience, and you may die before he actually learns. >> you know what? we're a little bit -- positive reinforcement. when he does something that's right, really let him know it's right. >> and that you appreciate it. >> just like you give a puppy a treat when it doesn't poop on the floor. you give him a treat for not pooping on the floor. >> let's listen to bobbi. >> i love it. so you have to let him know what that looks like to you, right? guys can't read our minds. >> so true. >> the number one thing men say about women is we expect them to read our minds. if you want him to be more thoughtful and romantic, let him know clearly what that means.

can see how many follicles are growing and what the progress is. how'd it go last night with the shot? >> it made me nauseous. i woke up this morning. is that normal? >> yes. uterine lining looks great. it's a vaginal ultrasound with a needle attached to it. it's applied to suction. the needle is place into the ovaries. fluid is drained. eggs come with the fluids. >> we were able to get more eggs than last time. the next step is to see, you know, whether they are able to fertilize and if so, we just hope that they are good quality because that's the most important part. >> wow. and bobby is here with the
doctor. gynecologist and inter fifertii specialist. >> i'm so fortunate and so loved. i have to say the biggest reason i wanted to talk about this is because it's hard enough to go through. to make something a secret. i found myself whispering in the hallways. so many women were going through it. she's my biggest girl crush. you really need to find a support system and a doctor like this who can help you get through it. >> not just clinical but cared for you. >> who cares for you. it's really important. i would joke around. i've broken two skirts, the zippers on the side. i have two nursing bras. i take it in a different way.
