7:17 am
10 times the amount of vitamin e. >> key is moderation. >> moderation and they are supporting the race for the cure with the pink ribbon. next, pack in produce. it takes a volume on your plate and takes up volume in your stomach so you eat fewer calories over the course of the day. there are several things people can do. choose different types of produce. look for the vegetables, different soups, stew mixes. these are fantastic, soup mixs, to make sure every meal has fruits and particularly nonstarchy vegetables. grab, steam-and-go vegetables. add country crock with 70% less saturated fat. and i added dill on diop. >> -- top. >> i see a lot of color.
7:18 am
>> color is important. if you vary your vegetable intake, you'll get different nutrients and antioxidants. >> switching gears to exercise. we know it's important but how much can it help in terms of cutting the risk of breast cancer? >> according to the world cancer research fund and american institute of cancer research, exercise is crucial. they suggest three hours or more per week can decrease one's risk for breast cancer. >> we hear things about aerobic versus weight bearing. do we know what's more effective? >> i tell clients do what they love to do and what they can fit into their schedule because if you love it, you'll continue to exercise, whether that means weight lifting, grapg -- grabbing something you can do at home like resistant bands, jumpropes. grab a pedometer, it will tell you through the course of the day how many steps you've walked
7:19 am
and encourage to you walk more. >> this smells fantastic. i guess this is a test for me, serving size? >> which one would you choose? >> i would choose this one but i'm guessing you're going to say this is the appropriate size. >> yeah, and the one you chose, this is what you often see in restaurants but studies show that one or more drinks per day increases a woman's risk of developing breast cancer so reduce and replace. reduce your alcohol consumption and if you can, replace it with non-alcoholic alternatives or at least vary each drink, mock tails. >> moving down, i've seen packaging for breast cancer awareness month, so same products, drawing attention to the -- >> they're drawing attention. if you see the pink ribbon, it means they're donating profits to breast cancer awareness and research.

7:26 am
digestion is one of the major reasons people take the dog to the vet. you have botannicles and herbs and pre and probiotics. i shop at whiskers online where i got this. >> you got those at pet smart. and rone took that treat and ran with it. charlotte, thank you very much. you can find more information on charlotte's website. the time is 7:27, it's chilly on tv hill and at the airport. more news coming up next.

7:30 am
contraception. on the trail, that's a big issue of debate. we will talk to senator marco rubio of florida, ohio republican mark portman and david axelrod. >> what is the sense of what the candidates have accomplished in the first two debates? >> i think you've seen the race move and become a tighter race as a result. people really paying attention to this, romney showing up well. i think the last debate was contentious, might have turned voters off. the big question is how many undecided voters do we have left at this stage? it's something we will discuss with chuck todd who goes inside the numbers. another piece of news this morning, the latest from the nbc news "wall street journal" poll showing the latest head-to-head matchup in the state of the race. >> you mentioned the tone was different the second debate
7:31 am
versus the first. do you expect a shift in strategy for the third and final debate? >> i still think it's going to be aggressive. and i think that we'll see it will be a different sort of debate. the town hall format creates its own issues but this will be an area where it is pretty emotionally charged issues here over american strength or weakness abroad, dealing with the libya story so controversial or dealing with iran so i think it's going to be pretty tough. >> david gregory, thank you so much. you can watch "meet the press" at 10:00 a.m. on wbal-tv. >> still ahead on 11 news, barks is joining us with a pet looking for a good home. >> you heard the old saying you never get a second chance to make a first impression. in a tight job market, it becomes even more crucial to do all you can to make that solid first impression. next up, pointers for putting

7:38 am
potential co-worker and they will rat you out in a heartbeat. >> you want to get off to a good start. >> absolutely and pay attention to details. dress nicely, make good eye contact, have a good hand shake. those simple things create a great first impression and enable you to bond with the person you're speaking with. >> don't be too overconfident, either. >> you don't want to be overly cocky, pretend like you have the answers to everything. there's a balance to draw between great accomplishments you've had and understanding that you don't want to come across as overbearing. >> you want to be yourself and show your own personality. >> if you look overly rehearsed, it's going to be difficult for you to have a comfortable conferring -- conversation like we're having. you want people to want to work with you and the more robotic you are, the more difficult that is to believe. >> comfortable but not casual?
7:39 am
>> not too casual. there are people, accomplished interviewers will let down their guard to see how far you will go. the don't curse an interview. don't do silly things and people will trip you up with that. >> take it seriously. you shared a story about someone who brought lunch to an interview. >> i had someone who came in for a lunch-time interview and had their bag from a fast food restaurant and asked if they could eat while we speak and that's not a good first impression. >> definitely not. thanks very much. barks is joining us with a cute pet that needs a good home.

open up as they sit a little bit so as you squeeze them, they shut back up a little bit. you want to start with a hot saute pan so the oils are smoking and add the mussels. you hear them simmer and as they cook, they're going to start opening up. >> they're popping. >> as they open up, you want to add white wine and then we actually make the diabla in house at the rusty scupper so we add that to it to infuse the flavors and put it in a dish and ready to go. >> you make it sound so easy. what happens if you had the them cook too long? >> they'll going to be tough. you really want to strive to when the mussels are opening up already. you don't want them to cook too much longer than that but you
7:52 am
want them to be fully open. >> if any of them don't open up, don't eat them! i would suggest not. occasionally you'll get a mussel, you might find one with mud in it occasionally. >> do you need to clean them before you cook them? >> depending on what you get. we get a cultured m.s.u.el from prince edward island at the rusty scupper but if you get a wild mussel, you'll have burrs in it and pull those out and wash them thoroughly and then put them in the pan. >> what's in the diablo sauce? >> crushed red pepper, obviously, we put onions, fresh basil, saute that up, white wine and garlic so not a lot of ingredients but i think the less

complicated you make things, the better they'll taste. >> and the white wine that you added at the start, any particular type you hike to cook with? >> we use a house chap -- chablis and started with blended oil and now i'm putting the white wine in. >> is this -- sorry, you've got it mixed up. is this an item we can find on your jazz brunch menu? >> occasionally on the sunday brunch menu but it's on the regular menu for lunch and dinner at the rusty scupper. >> tell people about the jazz brunch you have there. >> we serve a wide variety of items. we have a chicken dish, shrimp and scallop dish, fish dish, then we also have your traditional favorite, bacon sausage, home fries.

>> this is a wbal-tv 11 editorial with dan joerres. >> a season to remember. it's been 15 years since oriole fans uttered that phrase but it's never been more true. what started off as a season of reasonable expectations became a season that was beyond imagination. while it ended a week ago, the chants of "let's go o's" won't die down any time soon. baseball is back in baltimore
7:56 am
and in a big way. [chanting "let's go o's"] from the extra innings win streak to the breakout performance of rookie manny machado, from adam jones' all-star season to chris davis getting the call when no one was left in the bullpen, the birds did not disappoint. awash in orange, the city and fans had reason to cheer which is why so many turned out to welcome the team back after the game five loss. perhaps it was the 20th anniversary of the yard or the legends statues and ceremonies or maybe just the great chemistry. whatever sparked the flame, the fire of success has again been lit and a once storied franchise is once again making its city and fans proud. there really is such a thing as o's magic, we all got a chance to experience this season and as fans we will forever be thankful. a heartfelt thank you to the boys of summer and we agree, wait until next year. to relive this exciting season, go to wbaltv.com and click on sports.
