7:13 am
than $70,000 every day for the rest of the year just to catch up to the more than $18 million bernie sanders brought in by april, with an average donation of just $20. as part of his strategy, he branched out with this ad in spanish and unveiled a diverse staff including olympic gold medalist michelle quan. but one part of his past is once again in the spotlight. his campaign said he spoke with anita hill who said booid ben never apologized for the allegations of sexual harassment in 1991 against now supreme court justice clarence thomas. hill said biden reached out to her directly but stopped apologizing, but she said biden's actions do not disqualify him and biden insists he didn't seek the support of

7:34 am
guide. we're happy to say she's back home in california, weeks after a ransom was paid to her captors. >> what made you want to go to uganda? what were you seeking? >> gorillas something i've wanted to do since i saw them, as i got older i thought, you know, better make this happen. >> make it happen she did. earlier this month 57-year-old kimberly endicott fulfilled a dream on a trip to the wilderness camp in uganda. that first day i'm standing there, and all of a sudden one of them, a female comes out, and as she's walking by me she grabs my inner thigh. everybody's like, oh, my god and then minutes later another one nudged me. and all the guides said you are very lucky. >> but her luck would run out and that dream would become a nightmare. on her third day in the country
7:35 am
she visited queen elizabeth national park. it's a large protected area in the western part of uganda, a park filled with the wild animals of africa, a destination for tourists. kimberly was drivering through the park with an elderly canadian couple and their guide jp meringue remezo. >> four men come out of a perfectly square bush that's in front of us. my first thought was there must be something happening behind us and that these are rangers. >> why did you think they're rain egers is this. >> they're armed, they have guns. looking at them it became apparent pretty quickly no, that's not what this is. they were not in uniform. they were rag tag. and then they made us get out of the vehicle. >> so were they pointing the guns at you? >> yes, they make us sit on the ground. and that's where things go very -- i don't know how to describe it.
7:36 am
there's really not a word to describe what that felt like. pure fear, but that almost doesn't do it justice. and then boom, and it felt like a vortex sucking us in. >> the gunmen left the elderly couple behind but told kimberly and jp to come with them. >> he had me by the arm and he was run, run, run, or i'll slap you, run, run, run, or i'll slap you. but that's when i felt him shaking and -- >> the kidnapper was shaking. >> when he had a hold of my arm. and i thought to myself, is this methamphetamines? is this fear? >> did that give you some comfort to know that maybe he was nervous? >> not yet because if it's drugs then i'm in a world of problems. so i'm running through bush, hard ground. and needles and i remember i keep yelling my feet, my feet, my feet.
7:37 am
if you do what we say you'll be okay and i kept saying you took me away, you took me away and this weird gulping that i kept doing. i found out later that's actually a fear response. >> what were you thinking is going to happen? where is he taking you? >> that's what i don't know. >> still daylight at this point? >> still daylight. >> okay. >> and then the sun is setting, and we keep walking. and it gets to complete like pitch darkness. so at one point we stopped and i look up in the sky and i see the most beautiful sky i've ever seen in my life. >> i'm surprised you could appreciate a beautiful sky at that moment. >> it was incredible. it's nothing like i've ever seen before. and that was when i became very aware of humanizing myself to them. i said look at the sky.
7:38 am
i said, we don't have this at home. and i said, do you see that? that's the milky way. that became my mission for myself was to be human with them. not only for them to see me that way, but for me to see them that way. >> so it's like in the middle of all of this you're trying to come up with a strategy, it sounds like. >> very much so. >> were you crying, were you screaming, were you talking? >> not at all. >> what are you doing at this point? >> i'm just being in it. >> were you thinking that they were going to hurt you? >> yes. >> attack you? >> constantly. i don't know these men. >> so what was the dialogue about that? >> well, how do i get them to shoot me and just shoot me instead of dismembering me or raping me, how do i do that? if i ran -- oh, i think that would just make them angry and i think i would probably get
7:39 am
treated pretty badly if i tried to run. >> and where are you running to, by the way? >> there was no place to run. >> you were never physically or sexually assaulted or hurt. >> no, no, but that was my greatest fear. >> so you thought if somebody bad is going to happen, you're thinking please let it happen quickly. >> yes, i have no idea what they're capable of. i have no idea what their motivation is at this point. all i know is they took me away. >> i liked her so much, guys because of course it's only been two weeks, she's still very nervous and it's still difficult for her to talk about. i said how are you able to think how would i be human? she remembers that kidnapping in atlanta where the woman started thinking about her purpose driven life book and how the woman in that situation said let me become human to them and they to me she said i went back to that and thought what can i talk about, what can we do and in the end she did end up having a conversation, so much so when it was over kimberly, we'll miss

someone for a noncrime. but it is also important for people to recognize, mueller found a number of noncriminal motives by president trump. that works to his advantage. on issues like the trump tower, even the firing -- the attempt to fire mueller, he found these noncriminal reasons for doing what he did, but this is a 400 page tale of self-inflicted wounds and the president is writing a sequel. by saying he never told don mcgahn to fire mueller, he's creating a very important factual dispute that congress has no choice but to investigate. and if he's lying, that was part of the first article of impeachment against richard nixon. >> you mean this subsequent tweet that the president said where he said he didn't do that? >> yes. if congress concludes the president is lying about the underlying facts of impeachment, that actually can become a matter for them to consider for impeachment. >> someone calls that self-inflicted wound. >> yes. and repeated one, yes. >> okay, all right.

a fair heiress accused of swindling money from the elite was found guilty on eight charges. anna sorkin was accused of swindling people, she posed as a wealthy german heiress. now they're throwing the book at her, 15 years in prison on the more serious charges. our partners at the bbc report prince william visited one of the mosques in christchurch that was the target of a deadly terror attack. on day two of his new zealand tour, he called the attacks an unspeakable act of hate. in his speech, he opened up about the loss of his mother, princess diana, and spoke of having to deal with grief. >> you don't ever forget the shock, the sadness, and the pain. but i to ndo not believe grief changes who you r grief if you let it, will reveal who you are. >> nicely said.
8:33 am
>> duke of cambridge also praised new zealanders for standing together in the aftermath of the shootings. >> glad he's speaking up that way. usa today reports that after pressure from wildlife groups, the u.s. fish and wildlife service took the first step toward protecting giraffes under the endangered species act. environmentalists say it is the first time giraffes would be listed for protection by the u.s. even though there are no wild giraffes in the country. the move is expected to sharply curtail the international trade in giraffe bones, skins and trophies. this morning, we are continuing our partnership with ted to highlight individuals and ideas shaping our world. in our series ideas that matter, university of british columbia professor elizabeth dunn made headlines when she co-authored the paper spending money on others promotes happiness more than a decade ago. in her new ted talk posting this morning, dunn says simply donating to charity is not enough to feel these benefits.
8:34 am
>> betting money, helping others doesn't necessarily promote happiness. instead, it matters how we do it. and if we want people to give more, we need to subvert the way we think about charitable giving. >> elizabeth dunn is here now. i can't wait to get to this idea. how should we give? >> well, what we see in our work is that you're likely to get the biggest emotional boost from giving to others if you can do so in a way where you really get to see the impact that your generosity is having and you feel a sense of connection with the people or cause that you're helping. >> explain the transaction, psychological transaction that happens that creates this happiness response to giving? >> i think the sort of warm glow we get from giving is built into human nature. pexperience joy from giving to because our survival really depends on our willingness to make sacrifices along the way to
8:35 am
help each other out. >> you say we're wired to give and you said giving to charity made about the same difference for happiness as having twice as much income. explain, please. >> this was based on gallup poll data collected in countries around the world. and we were really pretty surprised to see the magnitude of this, that so consistently in every major region of the world people who give money to charity are happier than those who do not, even after tak iaccount th situation. >> you know, even though you study the connection between happiness and giving, i understand you weren't doing much of it yourself. >> yes. this is something i chose to admit to the world on the ted stage. >> working with the refugee program and how did that change things for you? >> i hadn't really found a cause i felt deeply connected with until the syrian refugee crisis. at that time i learned about an amazing private sponsorship program that canada offers where essentially any five canadians
8:36 am
can sponsor a family of refugees and you have to raise enough money to support them for first year, and then they actually get on a plane to your city and you're in charge of helping them settle in and helping take care of them. >> does it matter who you give to? are you happier if you give to a stranger, a family member or a friend? >> we see in our research that in general people are -- people tend to get more happiness from giving to people that they're close to as opposed to strangers or acquaintances. it doesn't have to be that way. if you give to your niece, you can see that she is so happy with this basketball you gave her and you play with her, that's going to give you this great emotional boost. i think really interesting challenge is how do we harness that joy of giving, that impactful joy of giving, and translate it into charitable giving to help people stay on the other side of the world. >> did you need a baseline of empathy for this to work or if somebody is out there saying, wait a minute, if i write a check, that won't make me feel
8:37 am
better? do you need empathy receptors for this to take place? >> most of us do. laura actman has shown even people who have been convicted of felonies show this same effect. so even these ex-offenders, we might think, they're not going to be likely to get joy from giving to others, they show the same effect too. this is something that probably all of us are capable of feeling. >> i can hear people saying, i would love to give more, but i'm barely making ends meet myself. does it have to be financial in order to experience the same type of joy and happiness? >> there is also evidence that spending time helping others can mack a difference for our happiness. we have seen our work with money that you don't have to be bill gates, you don't have to be giving a giant amount of money, even in our work we have seen that giving as little as $5 to help somebody else can give you the boost you feel throughout the day. >> all right. elizabeth dunn, thank you for
