this morning, a lot of churches packed them in on easter sunday, particularly. but at one outdoor service in texas, 15,000 people showed up. the fact that quarterback tim tebow was the guest speaker may have had a little something to do with that. we're going to get you caught up on what he had to say at that event. >> he does draw a crowd. and what does it take to get your family ready for the day? well, savannah guthrie is spending the morning at the arkansas home of the duggars to find out just how jim bob and michelle make it work with 19 kids. and right now, as you can see, she's heading into one of the kids' bedrooms. where it looks like they're already dressed. well, one of them isn't. there she is. >> i have three kids and i mean, i feel totally inadequate when i complain about what goes on in my house in the morning. looking at that. >> i know. but they're pretty calm. >> look at that. >> yeah. >> anyway we're going to find out how it works for them and maybe it will inspire the rest of us. but let's begin this morning with police now investigating that deadly shooting rampage in tulsa, oklahoma, as a hate crime. nbc's gabe gutierrez is in tulsa this morning with more on this story.
7:03 am
hey, gabe, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, ann. the two suspects are being arraigned right now. police are now investigating what are some recent facebook posts might help reveal a motive behind this deadly shooting spree. ♪ >> reporter: mixed emotions on easter sunday in tulsa. >> this is an entire community that is being attacked right now. >> reporter: grief for the shooting victims, but relief that two suspects have been arrested after a shooting spree that left three people dead and two others wounded on good friday. according to the police, none of them knew each other. all of them, black men. >> it sickens me. it angers me. this is not what tulsa, oklahoma, is about. >> reporter: police say the suspects were roommates. 32-year-old alvin watts and 19-year-old jake england. both are charged with multiple counts of first-degree murder. >> we're going to let the evidence take us where we want to go.
7:04 am
there are other motivations than race sometimes in these kinds of incidents and we're going to look at all of it. >> reporter: including this, a facebook page appearing to belong to one of the suspects. a status update posted hours before the first shooting mentions the two-year anniversary of his father's murder. the post used a racial slur to describe the killer. another entry posted friday says, in part, if something does happen tonight, be ready for another funeral later. >> this is where we can't afford to make mistakes. it is very premature to talk about hate crimes. we have yet to analyze all the information. >> in my 23 years of law enforcement, i don't think i've ever seen any crime as heinous as this. >> reporter: a crime that's still being investigated. police arrested the pair early sunday following several dozens of tips from the public. those led investigators to a burnt pickup that belonged to
7:05 am
one of the suspects. that vehicle had reportedly been spotted at the crime scene. ann? >> such a troubling story. gabe gutierrez, thank you so much this morning. more news ahead here. we want to check in on the day's other top stories. natalie morales is back at the news desk. >> welcome back. >> thank you, ann and david. good morning to you guys once again. good morning, everyone. we begin in north korea where this morning south korean intelligence officials say pyongyang may be preparing for a thor a third nuclear test. this as the country gets ready for a rocket launch that has the u.s. concerned. nbc's chief foreign correspondent richard engel is in pyongyang with the latest. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, natalie. today, north korea began what will be two weeks of official celebrations here. it's all designed to reinforce the transition of power from the late kim jong il to his song, kim jong un. in one of pyongyang's main squares today, a sea of people expressed joy for their great leader and eternal president.
7:06 am
and praise for his descendants. what stirred their excitement was this. a giant mural unveiled today of the late kim jong il. and when the assembly was over, the thousands just walked away. orderly, no trash left behind, uniformed schoolchildren, families and workers, simply left. in a nearby park, accompanied by a government minder, kim wang yong says that everyone supports the state. you think it's a good system for north korea? >> everybody understands and they uphold the line of our party. >> reporter: this weekend, journalists were taken by train to a military base to see this. north korea says it's an observation satellite that will soon launch into orbit. officials say it will circle the earth for two years. controversially, it will be blasted off by a rocket.
7:07 am
north carolina calls this the unha 3. it is a powerful, three-stage rocket, liquid fueled as far as we know with enough lifting force to carry a 1,000-pound payload. u.s. officials worry it could easily be converted into an intercontinental ballistic missile, a rocket that could reach the continental united states. the site's director says the united states has nothing to fear. >> no. it cannot be used for military use. >> reporter: back on the train, nbc space analyst jim oberg gave us his assessment. >> the design has weapons potential, serious weapons potential. probably it's already 98% of a weapon. >> reporter: if successful, north korea says the satellite will monitor the weather and track forest fires. but it could also advance this nation's long-range rocket capability. despite international condemnation, north korea says it will go ahead with its satellite launch sometime between the 12th and the 16th of this month. natalie? >> richard engel, fascinating reporting there inside pyongyang. thanks so much.
7:08 am
the u.s. has handed over authority to carry out military raids in afghan homes to afghanistan with the u.s. now only in a supporting role. the nighttime raids to root out insurgents are widely resented by afghans. a new study finds women who are obese during pregnancy are 67% more likely to have an autistic child and double their risk of having children with other developmental delays. experts say more research needs to be done, but it could be one of several contributing factors to autism. and bubba watson is seeing a lot of green this morning after an amazing shot out of a bed of needles at augusta nationals winning the masters in a sudden death playoff. watson donned the champion green jacket and took home about $1.4 million. he says he doesn't know how he did it, doesn't even remember the last nine holes, and that he was nervous at every shot. it's always the perfect fit. that's what's amazing. 7:08 right now. back to ann and david. custom made for them. >> i know. right after that playoff, they
7:09 am
turn it right around. >> can you imagine, though, doing all of that measuring ahead of time, and you don't know whether you can wear it? >> great finish. great finish. let's get a check of the weather. and, al, by the way, is still celebrating easter at the white house this morning. hey, al. >> that's right. in just about half an hour, they'll start the 134th annual white house easter egg roll. the first family will be celebrating and hosting that. we'll give you a little more details on that. we have some of our friends, the official easter bunnies and easter eggs behind us right now. of course, we've got some severe weather to worry about in the southern plains. we've got a lot of moisture flowing up into texas, oklahoma, mississippi, and into arkansas. a strong upper level jet coming across. and that means we have a risk of strong storms from oklahoma city into abilene, and a strong risk in parts of central oklahoma as well. look for isolated tornadoes possible later this afternoon on into this evening. that's what's going on around the country. here's what's happening in your neck of the woods.
7:10 am
well, it's a cool and partly cloudy start to the workweek. good morning, i'm christina loren, we are slated to hit the 70s later on especially in the south bay where we're going to see the most sunshine. 71 in san jose, about 71 in livermore today and bayside, 65 degrees in san francisco. we've got rain on the way as of late afternoon in the north bay. many showers start to push to the south as we head through the overnight hours with greater bay area seeing those showers as of tomorrow morning. >> that's your latest weather. that's your latest weather. what's wrong with this picture? i'm in washington, and david's in new york. what's up with that? >> i think we crossed, al. thanks very much. it is expected to be a big week in the investigation into the shooting death of trayvon martin. a special prosecutor could present her findings to the grand jury as early as tomorrow. nbc's kerry sanders is in sanford, florida, with the latest this morning. good morning, kerry. >> reporter: good morning, david. there are few public records to review in this case, and now there are none on government websites because the special
7:11 am
prosecutor ordered the city of sanford to take all of the public records associated with the trayvon martin case down. those marching to keep attention on the trayvon martin shooting death asked why did the initial investigation conclude so quickly? 45 days ago, it took just seven hours and 50 minutes for sanford police and the state attorney to let george zimmerman go home. and within the week, the state attorney had ruled gunman george zimmerman feared for his own life and should not be charged in the shooting death of trayvon martin. >> we expect it to be a just and fair and equal investigation, the way that all victims should be treated. and all investigations should be treated. >> reporter: several veteran florida homicide detectives interviewed by nbc news say they believe that timetable appears unusually quick. among the standards analyzed in a fatal shooting investigation, a complete autopsy report with toxicology tests. but experts consulted by nbc
7:12 am
news say scientifically, that full report could not have been completed in such a short period of time. >> when a man with a gun kills someone who is unarmed it certainly should take a lot more than seven hours to reach the bottom line as to whether there's a crime. >> reporter: sanford police and the state attorney would not comment about the timing, and anything else associated with this case. sanford's major crimes division has five detectives. two years ago, in the next door town of lake mary, that city's five-member homicide unit investigated another shooting. no charges were filed against the gunman in that case. but lake mary police called in the county sheriff's department with its fully-staffed crime lab to assist in the investigation that lasted 16 days. in trayvon martin's death, sanford's homicide detectives asked for no help at all. a special prosecutor involved in this case could present her findings to a grand jury as
7:13 am
early as tomorrow. david? >> kerry sanders, thank you. we have george zimmerman's attorneys here this morning. good morning to both of you. nice to have you both here. >> good morning. >> when do you expect to meet with mr. zimmerman face-to-face? and are you getting closer to the point where you think it would be beneficial to have him tell his story publicly? >> well, two things. number one, we expect to meet with him very soon, perhaps this week. in terms of the timing for when he's going to be able to tell his story, we're constrained. we've got a special prosecutor still in the process of completing an investigation. the last thing we want to do is good sideways with her or do anything that would compromise her decision making process. so we've got a little problem with that. as soon as he is either dismissed or they decide not to charge him or eventually he is vindicated, it will come out. if he's charged, you won't hear from him until it's over. >> where is the real focus of
7:14 am
the investigation? will it be on this stand your ground law and whether it's applicable here? >> i think that's going to be one of the main things they are looking at, was it self defense. was the use of force lawful. and they are going back through all of the investigation. i think there are forensic reports, different articles of evidence that they are going to review, as well as statements made by the different witnesses as well as george zimmerman. >> one of the issues here is whether there was a rush to judgment, a rush to not arrest. is that going to be a factor here? why in such a short period of time did they make a decision that none of these factors being what they were would warrant additional questioning or even apprehension? could they make a decision that quickly that he was within the bounds of stand your ground? >> if you understand the law, you understand the rush to judgment was the rush to afterwards complain that he wasn't arrested. the florida statute actually prohibits law enforcement from making an arrest under circumstances where self defense is claimed, and it's not absolutely clear that the use of
7:15 am
force was unlawful. if you claim self defense, and some of the forensics support that, it will be improper to make a defense. we heard one of the attorneys for the family say, well, they should arrest him and let him prove in court he's innocent. it doesn't really work that way in this country. >> what is it that you think we're going to learn from the actual face-to-face encounter? >> that's going to be part of the investigation. and, again, we're not going to go into that part until it's released. people have jumped to conclusions. wrongful conclusions, i believe. and i think once the investigation comes out, i think the country will see why the sanford police department made the decision they did at the time. >> does mr. zimmerman regret, feel remorse, for what happened? >> he is remorseful for the unintended consequences for what happened out of this incident. he is distraught over the fact that a life was taken. he recognizes and we recognize that the martin family are going through excruciating pain and grief. we feel for them. we pray for them. we pray also for the zimmerman
7:16 am
family, that has been destroyed by this incident as well. >> more to come on this. thank you both very much. and once again, here's ann. on a lighter note, is this a tim tebow world and we're just living in it? you might think so judging from the size of the crowd he drew when he spoke at an easter service in texas over the weekend. natalie is now joining us with this story. good morning. >> 15,000 people showed up when he took to the stage at a church service in texas. and he talked about the two most important things in his life, football and faith. >> so do you guys love tim? come on, austin. let's hear it! >> reporter: tim tebow, known as much for his faith as his football, took center stage sunday in georgetown, texas. >> this is actually a first. but it's good, i'm excited to be here. >> reporter: the nfl quarterback was a guest speaker at celebration church's easter service. >> win or lose, i think it's still most important that regardless of what happens that
7:17 am
i still honor my lord and saviour, jesus christ. >> reporter: the outdoor event attracted a stadium sized crowd. >> it's great. >> once in a lifetime to see tebow. >> tim tebow is definitely someone who registers with the christian community. i think that it makes perfect sense if he's going to give a talk, you know, he's going to do it on easter. >> reporter: sunday's appearance is just the latest example of tebow's outspoken devotion. as a college star, he literally wore his faith on his face. and while the heisman can't do that in the nfl, he could still take a knee for a prayer as did the rest of the country, his ever-present field position became an internet craze as tebowing became part of the public lexicon. >> i'm pretty sure i'm not the first athlete that has gotten on a knee and prayed, but somehow it's known as tebowing. ♪ tim tebow >> jimmy fallon even got in on the craze on his late-night talk show.
7:18 am
recently traded to the new york jets, tebow will take a back seat to jets starting quarterback mark sanchez next season. new yorkers are mixed on the newest addition. >> right now, the verdict is out as to whether tebow is a better football player or a better christian. >> reporter: he has already embraced the metrosexual here side of manhattan, seen here getting a manicure last week. one thing is for sure, tebow's religious connection will remain forefront to who he is. >> whatever happens in life, good or bad, whether you're the hero or the goat, whether you like it or not, you know that someone has a plan for your life. >> and tebow told the crowd that it's ok to be outspoken about your faith. he also took a shot at his fellow professional athletes who insist they are not role models. yes, you are, he said. you're just not a good one. >> hey, there you go. ouch. >> and he's got a good message there. ism thanks so much, natalie. david? well, friends and colleagues are paying tribute to longtime cbs correspondent mike wallace
7:19 am
this morning. the award-winning journalist died on saturday at the age of 93, and nbc's tom brokaw is here with his thoughts. good morning. >> david, we all know that mine was a very tough, smart, and relentless interviewer. but as a friend and as a competitor, he was equally loyal. he was mischievous. and he was great company. he set the bar very high, very early, at "60 minute" and kept it there. for a long time, the most feared words in america were, mike wallace is on the phone, and he wants to talk to you. >> why would brian mcnamee want to betray you? >> that's not very nice. >> he was fearless. >> why are you so reluctant? >> even with friends. >> now you really didn't need that question. >> and unrelenting. >> i have no intention of leaving until you tell me what's on your mind. >> mike wallace did not retreat. >> i even asked eleanor roosevelt difficult questions, and she loved it.
7:20 am
>> i think that you will agree that a good many people hated your husband. they even hated you. >> well, a great many do still. >> his interview with the ayatollah was classic mike wallace. >> and he calls you, imam, forgive me, his words, not mine, a lunatic. >> myron leon wallace was born in brookline, massachusetts. a graduate of the university of massachusetts, he became an entertainer. but he became the wallace we knew on a different kind of television show where he developed his style. a style that he then brought to cbs news. >> good evening. this is "60 minutes." >> the wallace interviews were wide-ranging. >> you haven't answered the question, mr. president. >> you would love to control this piece. >> absolutely. are you kidding? >> wallace was not afraid to open up about his own life,
7:21 am
discussing his battle with depression, prompted in part by a $120 million liable suit that eventually was settled. >> what happened with me is that a marriage broke up. i had to move out of my house where i had lived for 22 years. and i was on trial for libel simultaneously. >> reporter: he stepped down in 2006, but continued to ask the tough questions. >> may i ask my questions, please, sir? >> reporter: in 2005, mike told nbc news that he'd like to be remembered by three simple words. >> tough but fair. and that really -- i mean, for a reporter, tough but fair. >> david, for the past three years, mike has been living in a facility in connecticut. he has been suffering from dementia. his family said he was very happy that chris, his son, who is with fox news, says that his dad remembered him and family
7:22 am
members not so much as work, and members of -- colleagues of his from "60 minutes" stopped going because mike just didn't remember who they were. >> difficult end. but you talked about the depression and what an important impact he had on the country talking so openly about it. >> he is very close friends with art buckwald and a novelist who were all suffering depression at the same time. they would go for long walks on the beaches of martha's vineyard and talk about it, and then they went public. and i think that they brought it out into the open. of course, it was funny because there was a book about it, and buckwald and wallace all complained, you made money off yours. >> i loved morley safer said that mike wallace took to heart the comfort the afflicted and afflict the comforted. >> he would do it anywhere. at a dinner party or anywhere else. what's going on, brokaw? >> we are back in just a moment.

7:33 am
trip, sarah is playful. and giving. flying to iraq last year to see the troops. apparently they liked her. but prosecutors say this is the same woman, the same bengals cheerleader, who got into a sexual relationship with a teenage boy. one of her own students, when she was a high school english teacher. now charged with first degree sexual abuse -- >> i'm cheryl jones. >> reporter: her mother charged with covering it up, both pled not guilty. >> we're family. she's kind of like a baby sister to me. >> reporter: lindsay vaughn has been close to sarah for cheer years, both on the field cheerleading together, and off, where the bonds grew even stronger. people see the skimpy cheerleading outfit, they hear the sex crime allegations against her and people jump to conclusions. >> yeah. >> about who she is. >> yes. well, that's -- that's the world that we live in. >> what don't we know about sarah jones?
7:34 am
>> smart. christian girl. she doesn't drink. doesn't party. probably totally opposite of what you think of when you think of an nfl, glamorous, hot cheerleader. >> especially the one we've seen in the news. >> yes, very much so. very down-to-earth. very much so. loves her students. loves teaching. loves the bengals. just a good girl. >> when you see these headlines, first degree sexual abuse, seducing a child with e-mails, prosecutors say they have evidence, e-mails, phones, texts. what goes through your mind? >> our team was like a family. and we support each other. we don't know -- i don't know anything about that. i don't want to know. i don't need to know. i know her. and it's terribly shocking. being a bengal is not just about the cheerleading outfit. i know you may see that and that's something that you're going to hang onto in the news because it makes good headlines. but she's a real person.
7:35 am
i mean, we're real people. we have families. we have careers. we represent ourselves in this community. >> lindsay is nine months pregnant, no longer cheerleading, but wanted to come forward to support her. sarah's been battling rumors about her sex life for years. back in 2009, someone posted nasty communities on this website, sarah sued the site and defended herself on local radio. >> posted that i had had two stds given to me by a cheating boyfriend. and that i had sex with him in the classroom at my school. clearly, obviously, knowing myself that it was false information, i was devastated. >> it spiraled out of control very, very quickly. and i think that's where her whole life has basically been turned around and changed. >> reporter: today, it's not just her reputation at stake, it's her freedom. if convicted sarah faces up to ten years in prison. >> i mean, she's 26 years old.
7:36 am
and i can't imagine as a 26-year-old trying to recover from a situation like this. >> reporter: all that depends on the next chapter of this story. and that all sits in that building, the courthouse here in coffinton, kentucky, behind me. the trial date for sarah jones set for late june, june 27th, to be exact. right now sarah and her mother both on home confinement. sarah's wearing an ankle bracelet, not allowed to tex anybody. the judge said that in court. and she also can't have any contact with her alleged victim or his family. david? >> jeff rossen, thank you very much. now we want to get a check of the weather from al. who is reporting from the people's house this morning in washington. the white house. with all of his friends. hey, al. >> hey, in fact, david, these are some of our friends here. the power rangers, the chipmunks, penguins. hey, but we're going to -- this is the biggest event in the white house social calendar. 30,000 folks will come through here between now and 6:30. 14,500 hard boiled eggs given

divers had to anchor it in a rage of whirlpools and riptides. workers had to stack towers taller than four statues of liberty. fog made the iron slick as ice. no one had ever done anything like this before. but the golden gate bridge was completed in just four years. on time. and on budget. people who lived around san francisco bet big on the business the bridge would bring. at the start of the great depression they mortgaged their homes to get a private loan for one of the largest public works projects ever built. it linked the poverty around them to the world of hope. >> people risked their -- their homes, their properties, their ranches. >> reporter: for their families, futures. >> what do you see? >> reporter: lisa grew up four miles from the golden gate. graduating college on money she made moving lane markers on the bridge.

9:07 am
a tiny bag and a giant bill. shop smart magazine sent out secret shoppers to find the best deals. lisa is the editor and she's here with the results. secret shoppers scouting for personal care products and the prices. what did they find? they went to all kinds of stores. >> we had them look at everything from shampoo to deodorant to mouthwash and they checked all kinds of stores, walmart and target, drugstores, supermarkets, we even had them check online at, and >> and what did they find when it came to best pricing overall? >> you could easily save 25% to 50% or more depending on where you shop. the store with the best prices was walmart. by a long shot. >> hmm. >> target and actually did pretty well, as well. they were the runners up. the drugstores were the most expensive. >> oh, interesting. and when it comes to convenience, and i think a lot of people are shopping for these things on the fly, so they're maybe not planning where they're going to go, are there other ways that you can save, as well?
9:08 am
>> well, actually, the supermarkets are not a terrible place. they don't have the highest prices, they don't have the lowest prices, so if you're kind of in a rush -- >> might as well buy your deodorant at the same time. >> if you're dropping in at the convenience store or the drugstore, if you have your loyalty card, you get a good sale, you bring your coupons, you combine all those things, you can actually get a really good deal at a drugstore, if you shop smart. so you just have to be prepared. >> so loyalty cards are key. >> yes. >> you're going to save money using that. you also say to stock up during sales. now how is this helping you save money if you're buying a lot of product at the same time? >> well, you know, a lot of the times people wait until they're out of their toothpaste or wait until they're out of their hair dye and pick it up when they need it. that's the worst time to buy it. when it goes on sale, stock up. and if you're not brand loyal, and you see an amazing deal, that's another great way to save. and these things, they last a year or two years or more. >> right. >> so it's a great thing to stock up on. >> hopefully have a lot of room at home that you can store everything away.
9:09 am
because that can be a problem. that is the key. next thing you say coupons, you say max out coupons not just the store coupons, as well, but go online, as well. >> websites like, go to manufacturer websites of things that you buy frequently. and then combine all those coupons. that's called stacking. and if you can use multiple coupons on an item you can get it practically for free. >> i've seen people walk out of drugstores paying nothing. >> drugstores, supermarkets. >> you also say try store brands. if you're not brand loyal. >> we've been testing store brands versus big brands for years and years. and with toiletries we found they can be just as good or better than the big brands. we tested sunscreens, and we found that cvs, walgreens and target store brands were just as good as the big brands and walmart's equate brand, which is their star brand's body lotion was one of the best body lotions we tested. >> that's great to know. you also say price match. how does that work? >> target and walmart actually will price match. which means if you see a lower
9:10 am
advertised price somewhere, a really great price, bring the advertised price with you to the register and they'll match the price. >> you just have to do your research always. >> come prepared. >> and any other last-minute tips? >> buy larger sizes if you can. >> in bulk? >> we did find in bulk, if you belong to costco or a place like that, that's a great way to save. but also we checked a bunch of items in larger sides and we found the average savings was 29%. but you do have to check unit prices because that's not always the case. >> that's like going to costco or going to sam's club. >> or even just at the supermarket or drugstore, larger-sized items, check the unit prices because you really can save by buying larger sizes. >> always great to have you, lisa. you always save us some money and save us some work, too, so thanks so much. coming up next, the eyes have it. what you need to do to take care of your peepers. plus later, the stars of the new reality show, they're grown men, and still living with mom? what's that about? ♪

9:15 am
our eyes may be the window to the soul but allergies, makeup or even air conditioning may lead to problems. dr. roshini raj is a "today" contributor. >> good morning, tamron. >> a lot of people talk about their eyes this time of the year. mostly allergies but there are a longer list of other issues. >> they are. our eyes are so important but we really take them for granted. we didn't notice them until something goes wrong. we came up with a big roundup of the most common problems. >> one of the most common, itchy eyes. i mention allergies because i suffer from them severely. >> particularly this year has been a bad allergy season and we often see it in the eyes. so this itchy, watery eyes can be a sign of histamine release. that's the chemical that's at play during allergy season and what can you do about it? you can try over-the-counter antihistamine drops for your eyes. you can try steroid drops. but the other key is to avoid the trigger. when you're in your house, keep your windows closed. when you're in the car, keep the car windows up and closed and
9:16 am
you want to wash your hair when you come in from a day outside. because otherwise you're sleeping with that pollen in your hair, which will then get, you know, eye exposure as well. >> all right, burning eyes. you say this could be dry eye syndrome. what is that? >> well, many people suffer from dry eyes. meaning they don't produce enough tears to keep their eyes well lube rickated. that can lead to a burning sensation, gritty feeling in your eye. this can happen if you're in a surrounding with a lot of air conditioning, too much heat. if you're a contact lens wearer. if you smoke for example. if you're staring at the computer screen too long without blinking all this could lead to dry eyes. >> what do you do? >> well, the main solution number one is artificial tears. you can buy over-the-counter tears and they can either be the very thin ones or a thick more gel-like substance. talk to your doctor about prescription strength if you need it. and try to keep the air around you humid, a humidifier. if you're at work you want to take a break from staring at the screen every ten minutes. bat your eyelashes. it's not flirting with anyone.
9:17 am
lubricating your eyes. >> pink and puffy eyes. >> is a sign of inflammation of your eyelid. and it can be caused by oil or some dirt getting clogged in the oil ducts right around where the eyelashes come out. sometimes wearing too much makeup or not taking eye makeup off at night can lead to this. this will go away on its own if you find some warm compresses two or three times a day, keeping the area clean. avoiding the inside of the eye eyeliner is usually a good idea. but hygiene is the key here. >> and people seeing spots. what would cause that? and is that something serious? >> well, it can be. but often it's not. we call them floaters, those little spots that kind of float in and out of your vision. occasionally this is normal. basically the gel-like substance of our eyes, call your vitreous humor as it tends to shink you can get slumping of cells. they cast a shadow on your retina, this is what you're seeing. however if you get frequent floaters or it's associated with any flashing lights or loss of vision that could be a sign of retinal tear or detachment that needs to be treated immediately.

you need to take it seriously if it happens often or with any of those symptoms. >> a lot of people can identify with having trouble suddenly being able to read the menu at a restaurant or reading the teleprompter. >> it is pretty much a normal part of the aging process. as we age our lens becomes less flexible, it's harder to focus on those things. so if you can get glasses, of course, talk to your optometrist. but you can also, there's a great app out there called maglight which uses your smart phone as a magnifying glass, you can use the technology to help you. but this is one of those things that does happen to most of us. >> you want to draw attention to yourself with your mag in light that's okay because then you can see the menu. >> exactly. >> thank you dr. raj. great pleasure. coming up easy ways to bring in extra cash for stay at home moms. but first these messages. the capital one cash rewards card gives you a 50% annual bonus. and who doesn't want 50% more cash? ugh, the baby. huh! and then the baby bear said, "i want 50% more cash in my bed!"

9:53 am
meat you use in this? >> my philosophy with slow cooking is the fattier the better. but fatty also means cheaper, so beef chuck is really cheap, inexpensive cut of meat. so that's some beef in there. and we have some onions and garlic and bay leafs. >> okay. >> and this isn't too bad to put together in the morning. >> no. >> this is a nice size, you could feet the entire family. >> yes. >> this is a giant professional slow cooker. >> exactly. >> and then this is what gives the flavor. this is chipotle chilies which you buy in a can. they're smoky. they give a lot of heat and color and smokiness to this. >> salt? >> and oregano. >> perfect. >> no other base to it, no other liquid? >> the slow cooker is magical. liquid just appears. >> it's the fatty beef. >> yes. it really isn't liquid. but, yes. >> but it's good fat. >> exactly. >> so you cook that for four hours on high or eight hours on low. >> you work all day and you come home and it smells amazing. >> exactly. and you strain the liquid.

we had just a fabulous time. he says -- typical rege. "i got a job." i said, great, what are you going do? he said i'm going to be on "hot in cleveland." i said, rege, i suggested you get that job. anyway, it is a very funny premise. he's going to be on. he's going to play betty's hair dresser whom she assumed all along was gay and ends up not being and is interested in her. so it should be fun. >> i like it. >> but she said, kath, i forgot to give you something. this is from the late 1980s. that's rege and myself and that is -- perry co-mow. rege was in love with perry co-mow. we had a place down in florida that was really close to where perry lived. one day i said, rege, go to florida, stay in our house, use our boat and go looking for perry co-mow. one day he did. he went out -- perry. he went all through the inlets looking for perry co-mow. one of the nicest men ever.

10:08 am
this guy is a specialty in security issues. he breaks down stories about kind of how especially women have socialized their gut instinct because it is rude to assume someone walking down the street is going to hurt you? and he breaks down as these victims tell their stories how someone will say, you know, like i don't know why it happened. he's like, no, i think you do. let's go through that again. then he'll pinpoint. >> that's interesting. >> it's fascinating! my one thing is -- this book's going to hoda. is that hoda hands it to some other woman after she's done and we just keep passing it on. >> especially sending off your girls to colleges and stuff in the fall, it is a great gift. >> i hope you guys had a good easter. >> had a beautiful easter. >> you went to the service? >> went to our service. we got home early enough to take a quick little nap because i can't sleep on planes. then go to our service and cass and i served communion which is one thing to take communion, i always really appreciate that, but when you serve it, and you look in each person's eye as you
10:09 am
give the eucharist, it's pretty overwhelming. yeah. and i was balling anyway. this time both of my eyes were very, very moving. >> a lot of kids woke up -- >> look at your cards. read this one. >> hoda, what's this note say? >> this way. >> yeah. >> so a lot of kids get visited by the easter bunny and some get freaked out when they meet him in real life. >> excuse me! >> i'm sorry. if i'm in, you're in. so here are some pictures of kids greeting the easter bunny. >> he's scary! i'm sorry. >> little freaky. >> he's a bunny on steroids. they're not supposed to be that large. >> no, no. oh, no! no one thinks this is a good idea. the laughing bunny and the
10:10 am
blubbering child. >> just wrong on many levels. >> one of our facebook fans sent in a picture of her dog who she dresses up like an easter bunny. >> that's just cruel. >> how about that bubba watson though? rege and joy had just got done our house and frank rudely says, do you mind if i watch? because they were in sudden death. >> even if you're not into golf, here's what's interesting for all of us. bubba watson won. >> his very first majors win. >> his father passed away a year ago. he was very, very, very emotional. there's his mom. it was one of those moments you just watched him. you don't see men break down like that publicly all that often. >> but bubba did. you got to love a man that is that comfortable with himself to express his emotions that beautifully. i don't think any of us unless we've ever been in an arena like that, that pressure. look at tiger. everybody thought he was on the march again and he melted down
10:11 am
again completely. >> we've seen men cry. we were wondering what you guys think. obviously in a situation which is maybe a once in a lifetime event, or we've seen john boehn boehner. >> never see nancy pelosi cry though. >> anyway, there's -- so what do you guys think of when your man cries and is it something that you embrace and say isn't that sweet or does it make you feel -- i don't know -- >> have you ever seen jay cry? >> a little. a little teary eyed, yeah. >> when frank's mom -- i don't think he'll mind my saying this. when his mom died, she had a box of her jewelry that we hadn't gone through and we put it -- sat on the bed and opened up the little box of jewelry that had meant so much to her and he started to -- tears just -- not sobbing because the things that were in this box were so inexpensive. there was nothing of overt value at all.
10:12 am
they had grown up very, very poor. but everything had a memory to it and i think the fact that there wasn't anything of overt value made it all the more poignant. you know. >> so i think it is sweet when a man cries or touches. but sometimes like in movies and things, i don't like that, when they -- i don't like it. it's not for me. >> if you're strong 99% of the time, go ahead and cry once in a while. if it's blubber be -- all the time -- go home to mommy or get a shrink. >> should we bring bob up? where's bob. bob, please come up. he feels terrible. >> what happened, bob, after all? >> where is bob? >> he left. >> he left. bob went to see his mama. come here, bob. bob accidentally spilled the wine. it was not his fault. >> i don't know. didn't look like an accident to me. >> bob, please give us a play by play. >> here it is -- >> oh, my gosh.
10:13 am

10:17 am
let's linger on this one -- in "mildred pierce." >> stop talking. >> but his latest project takes him far from period pierces and into the future. >> in lockout, pierce plays a falsely convicted ex-government agent whose only chance for redemption lies in rescuing the president's daughter from a maximum security prison in outer space. >> it's just a little bit of pressure. >> it sounds completely realistic, doesn't it? >> it could happen. >> the thing is, it could happen in the future. who knows? prisons in outer space? >> how much in the future does this take us? >> it's like 2079. it's just around the corner. >> i've seen some parts of this. it's very physical. i mean you seem to get knocked around quite a bit, thrown around quite a bit. did you sustain any real-time injuries? >> well, not for any great length of time but every weekdy manage to do something to myself. so it became a bit of a joke, i would either pull a muscle in my leg. i fired a gun at one point and
10:18 am
