shoopz. "rolling stone" say they still talk about "time's" man of the year featuring adolf hitler and ayatollah khomeinei and charles manson in 1970. marketing analysts say one thing that could hurt "rolling stone" is if advertisers pull their ads or threaten to do so. no word whether any advertisers have done that and so "rolling stone" is not commenting. >> thanks for bringing that to us. we have a lot of things developing so let's get straight to michaela for the latest. a bipartisan group of senators reaching a deal on student loan interest rates. it offers college students lower interest rates through 2015 but then rates start climbing. they would be linked to

4:33 am
twitter some 600,000 tweets, producers say they're going to hold a twitter contest so fans get a chance to name the new "sharknado" sequel. how about that? chris over to you. >> "sharknado" is real, it has happened, it is documented. now a story we've been following here on "new day." is this what a suspected terrorist should look like, the cover of the latest edition of "rolling stone" features the younger boston bombing suspect looking like anything but what he's accused of being. the mayor of boston has sent "rolling stone" a complaint and several store chains have declined to sell the issue. we bring in juliet cayenne, a bostonian and christopher john farley editor of "speak easy" "wall street journal's" culture website. thank you for being here. >> thank you. >> i've missed you both, haven't seen new a while. juliet, the simple question, was
4:34 am
this the right thing to do? >> no. they have every right to do it. the article is fabulous, it's an amazing entry into his world, into dzhokhar's thinking. everyone should read it to understand how he came to be, how could an american boy essentially turn out to be a monster as they call him but we're really having a pr debate and in that sense "rolling stone" wins because we are having this debate, but it's a sultry image about that he took of himself about how he wanted to be and it's offensive and i think people have every right to be offended by it. i don't think this is a first amendment debate, this isn't about who he is in journalism. it's offensive. people said they put charles manson on the cover. look at the pictures, they are not this picture. debris with the outrage.
4:35 am
i'm surprised that "rolling stone" seemed so outraged by the outrange. they clearly knew this was going to be the response and i welcome this debate. they can do it and people like me can say it was a bad call. >> they didn't want to come forward and talk about it but on this point of they have a right to do it even if it isn't right to do it, let's pick up on that chris. this is legitimate journalism. they say the piece is an in-depth one. don't take too much into the picture. is there something to be said for get over the pc nature of this and let's deal with the hard questions that this kid presented? >> yeah, it is an in-depth piece. "rolling stone" was smart to put it online so you can read it for free and make up your mind whether the piece was legitimate journalism. it's a long piece goes into depth about his history but "rolling stone" is facing a problem here. it's a rock magazine at a time when people aren't listening to that much rock 'n' roll and aren't reading that many
4:36 am
magazines. they have to do something to reach out to people saying we're still here, we still matter and have something to say and they did it with this photo. what does a suspected criminal look like and does it have to look ugly, menacing or can he look seductive, can he look like he looks on the photo on the cover of "rolling stone"? it really challenges people's preconceptions of what a suspected terrorist looks like and that's part of the point of the story, too. they go into depth about how this guy allegedly fooled a lot of people around him into thinking he was just another guy. >> right. >> another all-american person, another all-american kid and couldn't have been capable of the things he's now alleged to have done. >> seems he fooled himself most of all believing he had some purpose behind these actions. isn't there a difference between showing what a terrorist might look like, let's change the stereotype as opposing to glam ri orizing this person.

what about that? >> i think that is right. the story of dzhokhar is fascinatin fascinating. i liked "rolling stone's" article. we like to believe it was the russians or chechens or islam. this was an american experience. it's not prevalent. it is not, we're not in a crisis mode. this isn't something that is happening all the time but there are people who become radicalized who are americans and that is what he is. so that's an important contribution. by putting the sort of, you know it really is a sexy, sultry picture of him on the front, they are portraying to the world that a sympathy, a grandeur about him that is neither in the article itself nor something that most people who experience what happened here a couple months ago feel. so i'm all for them trying to
4:38 am
push the envelope, this is not a first amendment debate. i'm all for people pushing back and that's exactly what they've done. the unfortunate thing is people should read the story. it is a very good, i don't agree with everything, it is a very good journalism piece. it's been all lost in what's really an immature move i think by "rolling stone." >> that's the point we want to end on here, chris, is look we get what's going on. you're being provocative. you gave them a very good cover for that provocation by the way by saying we have to re-understand to create a word what a terrorist can look like, but why play this way on something so hurtful to so many people? why be provocative on something like this? does the intention wind up being worth the insult? >> obviously there's good publicity and bad publicity and some people might think any publicity good for a magazine. you can go too far. cvs and walgreens pulling the magazine from their shelves, refusing to stock them before it comes in.
4:39 am
back in the '60s "time" put on the cover "is god dead" for a dry discussion about theology. magazines have to reach readers with whatever's in the pages of their magazine they want people to read what they have. this is a very good story. i'm sure the editors met and say how do we communicate to people there's something worth reading and they went with this very provocative cover. >> thank you very much for making the points for us this morning. we appreciate it, as always. what do you think? please come to us on twitter, come to us on facebook and you tell us whether or not you think this is glamourizing somebody that doesn't deserve that attention or a provocative way to get us into a discussion we need to have. coming up next on "new day" a strange political story that started with a tweet during the state of the union address. the congressman you see there the swimsuit model and the dna test that will finally answer the question, are they really related? it's a "new day" exclusive. we have another compelling story for you about a woman

4:44 am
stressful. >> reporter: that's how victoria brink describes her life the last few months. she's the woman who had a twitter conversation with tennessee congressman steve cohen. by the way that conversation was during this year's state of the union speech and also by the way it forced the congressman to admit this was no tawdry tet-a-tet. she was his daughter. the revelation forced their new relationship into the public. in a single tweet the then 23-year-old's life turned inside out. >> what was out on the internet was that me and steve cohen could have been lovers. >> you actually look beautiful. >> thank you. >> reporter: enter houston oil man john brink who always assumed victoria was his daughter. >> reporter: how tough has this been for you. >> holy [ bleep ]. excuse me. honestly the most difficult
4:45 am
thing i've ever done. >> reporter: victoria and the congressman kept their secret from everyone for three years. >> it was very hard to keep a secret like that from my family. >> reporter: from your father? >> yes. very hard. >> reporter: secret until state of the union tweetgate forced her to come clean. >> i told my dad and we cried and he said no matter what, i love you. you're my daughter. >> reporter: but amazingly enough congressman cohen had only ever deduced the relationship. >> well i knew her mother a long time ago and i googled her one night and saw that she had given birth to a beautiful young lady and i kind of went back to nine months before and that was t time when we were involved. >> reporter: victoria's mom took no part in this story but says she has a good relationship with victoria but there was never any hard proof like, say a dna test. until now. >> we're here to do a dna test. >> right.
4:46 am
>> reporter: cnn obtained cnn from victoria and john brink the man who raised her and from congressman steve cohen who didn't want to appear on the story. >> the results show steve cohen is not my father. >> reporter: all the tension and emotion for nothing. steve cohen has zero percent chance of being her father. but you never doubted? >> no, no, i changed her first diaper. i cut her umbilical cord, no. i couldn't doubt that. >> reporter: in a statement the congressman said "i was stunned and dismayed at the result. i still love victoria, hold dear the time i have shared with her and hope to continue to be part of her life." is there a lesson out of all of this for you? >> maybe do a dna test first? >> reporter: all this drama based on a google search and a couple of tweets. miguel marquez, cnn, houston. >> i had an opportunity to meet with victoria, she's a sweet, young woman. this was very innocent on her and it was very tough for her
4:47 am
with her father, that's the man who raised her and she's so close to him so it was really complicated but a weird twist. >> a weird twist and so difficult for any private family matter like that to be forced into the public spotlight. >> i wonder for the congressman because of the test does it go back to the fact he was tweeting someone and it was kind of creepy? >> not at all. it does not. he thought he was tweeting his daughter. it was very sweet. >> it is a weird one, never seen one like it. >> it's a weird twist. >> age of twitter. let's move on now it is money time. christine romans is here with all the business news you need to know this morning. >> what is the twist? >> ben bernanke would never be part of that story. the ben bernanke double take, today he'll be at the senate after telling the house the fed's time line for pulling back on the stimulus not set in stone and said the housing market is strong and contributing to a rebound in the economy. stronger economy means higher mortgage rates, watch for that.

4:49 am

welcome back to "new day." once upon a time, seems like
4:53 am
everyone has a story to tell. the 50-year-old has been called america's nastiest neighbor. her antics attracting news crews from as far away as, wait for it, australia. pamela brown is here to tell us the saga continues. this is not ordinary neighbor stuff going on. >> certainly not. i talked to her at length last night and basically she's unapologetic. if she had to do it over again, she would have moved out of the neighborhood earlier. having two restraining orders issued against you would be enough of a deterrent, not for lori. the taunting of her neighbors cost her home, her job and now part of her freedom. she is giving her side of the story. she's been dubbed the neighbor from hell. all stemming from complaints that laurie christenson has been anything but neighborly. are you the neighbor from hell? >> i would not think so. >> reporter: they say she has been harassing them for years
4:54 am
after an argument between their young daughters. >> that's the way we learned to live and that's the way we raise the kids. >> reporter: they started filming christenson's antics showing her provocatively dancing in her driveway and drinking out of an oversize beer bottle, as a way to taunt kim kauffman, a recovering alcoholic. >> it doesn't allow you to heal completely because it's putting it in your face every day. >> reporter: they filed a restraining order, but didn't stop her from posting these signs on her garage door. shortly after she was sent to the slammer after a month for ignoring the judge's orders. >> mommy kissing a breathalyzer. that wasn't targeted at her? >> i just don't think agree with people drinking and driving. >> reporter: the one you put up
4:55 am
get a life, guilty talk the loudest. who was that directed at? >> you know, i was a bartender for years. i have people that follow me, drive by, maybe it was, maybe i was a little guilty on that one. greg standing in his driveway videotaping me, that's creepy. >> reporter: on monday night she pleaded guilty to violating her restraining order, once again. this time for filming the hoffman at their home. are you done with the hoffmans? >> no. i never had a problem with them. i just chose not to hang out with them or have them at my house any more. >> reporter: she lost her job and now plans to sell her house in this quiet minnesota cul-de-sac because she's forbidden to return there. >> they had an obsession. they wanted to make my life miserable. >> in addition to ten years probation, she has been ordered to avoid all contact with the hoffmans for a decade and she's been put on four and a half
4:56 am
years probation because of this. let's not forget, this all started between a fight between her daughter and the hoffman's daughter. it all happened over a nail polish dispute years ago. like we said, she lost her home and her job and so much fall out and like i said earlier, she is really unapologetic about it. >> got to learn to let it go sometimes in life. >> much better way to deal with it than they have. coming up next on "new day" for the first time trayvon martin's parents are speaking out about the not guilty verdict for george zimmerman. we'll hear from them in their own words and talk to their attorney coming up ahead. this could be the hottest day yet in that sweltering heat wave. so, what are sanjay and i doing working out outside? put it this way, you want to be the guy in the blue shirt, not the guy in the black shirt for a lot of reasons. ♪ norfolk southern what's your function? ♪

5:02 am
zimmerman trial. we have been talking about the heat, it is dangerous. but many of us choose to exercise anyway. there are rules you need to know. dr. sanjay gupta gives us what you need to pay attention to. and hollywood in the house on "new day." actor rob lowe is here talking about his new passion project and some of his biggest roles. really great ones, too. we're also going to talk to him on cory monteith's death and the struggle to stay sober in hollywood. >> his takes on political comebacks. made one on his own career. what does he think? if you thought the last couple of days were hot, well, get ready. forecasters say today is going to be even worse. 47 states feeling 90 degree temperatures or hotter. and the oppressive humidity will make you feel like 110 degrees in some places. indra peterson is live in new york central park with the latest on the heat. how are you holding up out there? >> not so bad.
5:03 am
not running in the park, chris. a little bit better for me and probably a little early in the morning. regardless, still 82 degrees and you just mentioned today is expected to be hotter. we are looking at five days of this heat wave and, unfortunately, spreading to even wider and affecting a huge chunk of the country today. the hottest weather of the summer with the heat wave scorching a huge chunk of the nation. officials are blaming this heat wave for at least two deaths. an elderly woman in maryland and in new york last week, a staten island man died because of the sizzling temperatures. >> very hot. >> reporter: in indiana a senior center lost power. hundreds had to be evacuated as it was too dangerous to stay inside. >> it's all old folks. so, you have to take care of them. >> reporter: on average, more than 650 people die each year from the heat. the blistering heat inside a vehicle has already claimed the lives of 21 children this year. a meteorologist from maryland shows us how hot it can get inside your car. >> i'm completely miserable and
5:04 am
i'm drenched with sweat. you can see my shirt. >> reporter: working outside can be unbearable. >> by the end of the day, you're sluggish and you don't think as well. >> reporter: in california, a farm was shut down. >> real hot. >> reporter: the culprit, a large zone of high pressure parked over the ohio valley and the northeast. 2:00 p.m., the hottest time of the day. 94 degrees, but feels like 100 with the humidity and the ground itself over 130 degrees. okay, it's almost 5:00 in the morning. coolest time of the day and still 82 degrees outside and the ground's even hotter. currently 88 degrees. >> this morning when i woke up and went outside i couldn't believe how warm it already was. >> and we talk about heat advisories and we don't talk about how warm it is or how hot the temperature is. but we factor in how many days we have these advisories. look at this. heat waves now in new york the fifth day and in d.c. our fourth day. temperatures expected to be warmer than yesterday.
5:05 am
we talk about ten degree above normal temperatures now combining with this high humidity. it is going to feel like 105 degrees. here we go, we're talking about southern new england down to d.c. and hartford, connecticut, looking for 105 and philly 105 and new york 103 and spread it all the way now towards minneapolis and even farther than yesterday, even in through the dakotas and not going to see relief until the weekend. the streak is going to last even longer and that means talking about severe weather here in 48 hours or so. >> as we have been telling everybody, indra. good time to be a neighbor. check in on your neighbors. also, look, people will exercise when it's hot out. when i asked sanjay, what about exercising in the heat. he said, don't do it. i know people will. we'll show you how to do it the right way and we went outside and did it and i got a little shamed in the process. >> how quickly it can become dangerous. >> for me, especially. >> no, no, no, you're very in shape. all right, another, speaking of heat, another story we're
5:06 am
following. a fast moving wildfire in the mountains of southern california has burned through 20,000 acres. the mountain fire has forced authorities to issue evacuation orders for about 6,000 people. that's where miguel marquez is live in idyllwild, california. how is it looking this morning, miguel? >> it's smoky here, i can tell you, kate. this is downtown and everybody is out of here except for us and the firefighters that you can see who are doing structure protection here. the biggest problem for them right now in this fire is the shifting winds. the flames have already burned through more than 30 square miles. in this fire raging out of control through the california towns of idyllwild and fern valley is no where close to being under control. residents fearing the worst is making safety their first priority. 6,000 of them ordered to be evacuated overnight. >> that is our house right there, we had to say our
5:07 am
good-byes, just in case we don't come back. >> reporter: at this hour, the blaze only 15% contained, according to forest service officials. at least seven structures damaged or destroyed. as many as 4,000 more are under threat. the response by officials has been massive, 3,000 fire personnel have been dispatched to the scene and three firefighters have already suffered minor injuries battling this inferno. in the meantime, residents are simply hoping for the best. >> i'm just keeping my fingers crossed that, that it's okay and it looked far worse today because now it's circling around the ridge. >> now, we know that firefighters were able to get up into the hills overnight. those guys that work overnight here and they did make progress. how much progress is still a question. the winds have not been great tonight, so, that's another good sign. we expect that in an hour or so we'll hear that containment has gone up some, but still a great concern over what those winds
5:08 am
will do once the sun comes up and whether or not that fire blows back on itself. kate? >> thank you so much. another story we have been talking about all morning. trayvon martin's parents breaking their silence for the first time since george zimmerman was found not guilty of murdering their son. i want to bring in mr. parks to talk more about this. let's listen to the interviews that sybrina and tracy did. they were asked, just their initial reaction, the trial and the verdict as they're speaking out for the first time. let's take a listen. >> i want america to know that trayvon was a fun loving child. he was our child. we miss him dearly. >> i was in a bit of shock. i thought surely that he would
5:09 am
be found guilty of second degree murder, manslaughter at the least. but i just knew that they would see that this was a teenager just trying to get home. this was no burglar. this was somebody, somebody's son that was trying to get home. >> now, we know that it's clearly very painful for them still and also that they were not in the courtroom when the verdict was read. why do they want to speak out now? what do they want to say? >> first of all, you have to realize they went through four weeks of trial in this situation. they were extremely tired and they heard that 911 tape and then in the closing, as sybrina was sitting next to me she saw the picture of his face. hasn't seen that face. the same picture that tracy martin used to identify trayvon. they are extremely tired. it was a long, long road that trial. >> a long road ahead. do they feel there is a misconception out there of their
5:10 am
son or their son is misunderstood throughout the trial? why come forward and why talk about it? they put out some very touching statements right after the verdict, but what do they want people to know now? >> it's rather clear. just the one juror that has spoken out. they didn't know trayvon. maybe trayvon's human as in the course of the case didn't come out as much. as you listen to that juror, she humanizes george zimmerman when in this case, trayvon was the victim. >> one thing we heard from them and their tweets and speaking out on social media is that they both called for peace and calm in the aftermath. have you spoken to them? what are they saying about the response that has been out there? protests, a lot of support for them and also some clashes with police and some arrests. are they disappointed in that? >> let's be very clear. from the time we first spoke out right after the verdict, we called for peace and calm on their behalf of the legal team. so, that maintains. and they don't want trayvon's
5:11 am
legacy to be tainted by violence or anyone who would go after any type of violence. to maintain trayvon's dignity is what we expect. >> let's listen to more of the interview that both sybrina and trace tracy did this morning. let's listen to a little bit from sybrina. >> at least investigate what happened. at least go through it with a fine tooth comb and make sure all the ts were crossed and all the is were dotted because this is settinding a terrible messag sending out a terrible message to young teenagers. trayvon was walking too slow. so should they be walking too fast? you know, so, i don't think teenagers in whole know exactly what to do now. >> she talks about dotting the is and crossing the ts and also looking at all the legal
5:12 am
possibilities. i heard both benjamin crump, they talked about that. does that include at this point, do they know what their legal possibilities are and what they decided on? are they looking to a wrongful death lawsuit? >> that's a possibility and that's been a possibility from the very beginning. we considered george zimmerman even in the initial lawsuits we had. we will make an appropriate decision at the right time. >> is there a time table that they're looking at and when they make that decision or let things cool off from the verdict first? >> certainly. the verdict just came down. so, you just don't go straight from a verdict to suing monday morning. that's not how we operate. we'll sit back and we'll analyze george zimmerman and determine when, how we should do it. and then at the appropriate time, we will engage. >> and, also, the justice department is looking into this, as well. investigating if there is reason for federal civil rights charges to be brought against george
5:13 am
zimmerman. everyone we talked to said it is a big challenge to meet the threshold for those charges to be brought. what do trayvon martin's family, what do they want? are they confident that the justice department will find reason to bring charges against george zimmerman? >> well, i think she said it right in the interview that you just aired. she wants the justice department to explore fully and then make their decision. that's all we can expect. in terms of how that decision is made, i'm sure they have adequate resources to determine whether or not any applicable federal law that is warranted in this situation. >> has there been any conversation with the justice department? any conversations with the attorney general? >> well, no. early on in the case, the federal government sent various resources to central florida. we did meet with them during that time and we're very confident that all the possible people, whether it's the civil rights division in d.c. or whether the fbi in central florida or whether it's the u.s. attorney for the middle district of florida. all of them were engaged in this
5:14 am
process and we believe that they will take the necessary action needed. >> we'll be watching for that, as well. daryl parks, thank you for joining us this morning. >> thank you for having me. >> we want to remind viewers tonight on "ac 360" anderson cooper will interview trayvon martin's parents himself. you do not want to miss that. >> more must-see tv from anderson. switch gears and talk something of a very different type of concern. student loans. we now know that there is a push, a bipartisan push of senators to try to fix this problem where the interest rate for loans popped. are they going to be able to do it? are they going to give the priority that it needs? well, we don't know yet, but we're going to try and get the answer. let's bring in brianna keilar joining us from washington this morning. so, the question is simple, the answer is hard. what is going on right now and do we believe they're going to get this done? >> it is a tentative agreement, chris, that is what we're hearing from sources on both sides of the aisle on capitol
5:15 am
hill. if the white house has anything to do with it, they want senate democrats to certainly accept this and to kind of just move along. initially what you had were senate democrats like tom harkin, who has really been leading the charge here for them, who didn't, they wanted a fixed rate on these loans, these federally subsidized stafford loans and then realizing they weren't going to get that, they wanted a cap and make sure that you didn't see deficit reduction, as they would put it, on the backs of students trying to get, trying to make college affordable. i think, ultimately, the white house sort of forced senate democrats to finally go along here with the deal that the white house felt they'd be able to get through a divided congress. >> what am i missing? why do we need a deal? why aren't college students and loans and helping these families get this needed education a priority? why am i hearing things like, well, the loans will go back up in the future and what the caps
5:16 am
are so high for parents and 8.5% for kids. why aren't these treated like mortgages and given that kind of importance? >> leading up to july 1st 3.8% and then 6.4 and now 8.25% here in a couple of years, potentially, since it will be a floating rate. certainly that is an issue. if you were to ask politicians, chris, democrats would tell you, we wanted to keep this low and wanted to make college affordable. so do we, but we're keeping an eye on deficit spending and the white house looking what they can get through congress here. >> thank you for the reporting. i put the question to all of you. yes, we have to keep the deficit down and deal with our debt, although we never do. is this the way to do it? is this the time the politicians say we should draw the line opstudent loans for college? what do you think? let us know. another issue going on in washington, we'll go to michaela

welcome back. the jorgeorge zimmerman's trial brought stand your ground law into sharp focus. now we're looking beyond that case at examples of what this law can and cannot do. melissa alexander sentenced to 25 years behind bars to fire a warning shot into the wall after her husband threatened to kill her. her shot injured no one. she spoke exclusively with cnn about her ordeal. how is he going to kill you if you're the one with the gun? >> i agree. i thought it was crazy, too. >> why didn't you run out the door at that point? >> no other way to get out of the door. he was right there threatening to kill me. >> your life would have been easier today if you did that. >> but the law states that i don't have to. >> all right, alexander was arrested. her stand your ground defense
5:25 am
rejected. after 12 minutes of deliberations, a jury found her guilty. joining me now from davy, florida, is mr. bruce zimt. thank you for being here, bruce. let's hit all the hot points here. okay. first one, why wasn't stand your ground allowed by the judge in this case? >> well, first of all, i was not marissa's trial attorney. she had an attorney from jacksonville that tried the case. two things happened. number one, prior to trial, she had a hearing in which she tried to get the judge to order that she would have what's called stand your ground immunity and be free from prosecution. the judge made a finding that she did not qualify for that that should not have met her burden to establish stand your ground criteria. >> why not? >> the judge said that she had an obligation to flee and that she had not been severely injured enough to justify her standing her ground. and, obviously, that's a point
5:26 am
that we disagree with and that's the point which is on appeal right now. >> let's go through it. i don't understand. my understanding of stand your ground is that you don't have to flee. you get to stand your ground and that it's fear of what might happen to you, not that you are actually being injured at the time. where am i off? >> you're not off. you nailed it, chris. that's what we're arguing on appeal. that's where we say the judge errored and she should have been granted that motion and should not have even had a trial. >> then it goes to trial. i know you weren't the attorney of record at that time. in making the case, were you allowed to argue it there or completely denied so she was only allowed to use self-defense. >> she was allowed to use self-defense but standing your ground within your own house is part of the self-defense and she argued that. the problem with the self-defense at trial is that the judge gave a jury instruction, which neither the defense nor the state argued or disagreed with, which
5:27 am
essentially qualified her defense or made her defense unbearable. in other words, the judge said that the jury had to first find that the alleged victim was injured before shed and utilize self-defense. and there's been three cases in florida that have found that instruction to be what's known as fundamental error and convices for those three cases that have been thrown out of court. those three cases we are relying on for that point that the judge aired in the jury instructions. the defense not got presented to the jury. >> little bit of a twist here. the george zimmerman trial has raised attention whether you should have a stand your ground law. here it was like one was needed in this case. do you believe this is an example of why you need this law? >> i'm not into the social issues, but at the time of this case, stand your ground was a law in florida and this should be a classic case where stand your ground should work for marissa. >> 20 years in jail for not
5:28 am
hitting somebody with a bullet. because of the laws on the books to punish gun crime. could something else have been done here? >> well, certainly, there are decisions that are made by prosecutors every day as to how to exercise the discretion and charging an individual. in this case, the prosecutor in jacksonville made a decision that this should be the charge and this should be the penalty, if she was convicted. >> she was offered a plea deal early on, though. three years or go to trial and she chose to go to trial. >> right. that's one of the problems with these mandatory minimum penalties. a person who doesn't think they're guilty has to decide should i take a three-year imprison penalty or take the risk of going to trial and getting a mandatory minimum sentence. >> you say you're not involved in the social issues, but one question addressed in the wake of the george zimmerman trial. do believe her race played a
5:29 am
role in how she was treated by the system? >> i'm not getting involved in that issue. what we're dealing with are the specific issues. did she get a fair trial in jacksonville? that's what our team is appealing and that's what we think we're ultimately going to be successful getting her back to a courtroom in jacksonville and having a fair trial where all these issues litigated and be found not guilty when that happens. >> bruce, thank you very much. stay in touch with us, we want to follow this. let us know how we can stay involved. >> absolutely. >> kate, over to you. coming up next on "new day" beat the heat when you head out for your workout. what you need to know before you break out in a sweat. he's done drama in the west wing and comedy on "parks and recs." rob lowe is joining us straight ahead. ♪

5:36 am
chug. >> don't chug, take it with you when you run. >> cheers. >> thank you very much. >> just take a second, kind of count to ten and measure your heart rate. >> tell me when. >> go. stop. >> what did you get? >> 20. >> your heart rate is 88. that was 15 seconds. 88 beats per minute. that's actually pretty good. here's something, a little tidbit, for every increase of 1 degree celsius of your body temperature increase your heart rate by about 30 beats. even if you can't take your temperature, check your heart rate and get an idea in terps of your body temperature. they always say if you are feeling thirsty, you may be already behind in terms of your drinking. >> i can't keep up. you're going too fast.
5:37 am
>> time for the moment of truth. wow. exactly three degrees higher than it was. >> thank you very much, doc. i couldn't have done it without you. >> i mean, does your back hurt? >> the mri turned out fine. >> you are not a short man. this man is just a massive human being. >> 6'3", 215 pounds. good workout for you. >> what did you learn? >> that, first, you don't work out with sanjay. rule number one. that you have to be careful when you're out there. the heat gets you. can be a little sneaky and too many people go into it unprepared. >> you have to acclimate ahead of time. you almost have to hydrate the day before. even without the heat, you have to plan beforehand. people walk around in this country chronically dehydrated.

so then they say, i need to take some electrolytes. if you're getting enough water ahead of time. again 110 ounces for chris on a normal day, another five to seven day every 15 to 20 minutes while you're exercising. >> hit the treadmill inside. >> certainly between 10:00 and 4:00. the hottest times of the day, but people still want to be outside. we were out there early in the morning to avoid the worst part of the day, but if you do it, you have to be prepared. within 15 minutes you can raise your body temperature. >> it happens fast. >> people kept stopping us when we were jogging asking me if i was okay and asking sanjay for autographs. >> hang on, i'm treating chris cuomo. >> do you know how to sweat? >> i was sweating. >> you were? >> that's the body's mechanism. >> he was sweating more worried what would happen to me.
5:39 am
