from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie. >> welcome to "today." >> we're following that breaking news tied to the boston marathon attack. >> 19-year-old dzhokhar tsarnaev has been confined at fort devons after moved overnight. we want to go to more on this and the suspect's plans for an alleged attack here in times square. good morning. >> good morning to you. i want to begin with breaking news. as you mentioned, dzhokhar tsarnaev, who had been getting treated at beth israel medical center in boston. by the way, a lot of outcry about that, being treated in the same hospital as many of those attacks moved overnight.
he is going to fort devens in massachusetts, 40 miles west of boston. this is a specialized facility, specializes in inmates who need long-term medical care. it is located on a decommissioned military base. we will keep an eye on that. dzhokhar tsarnaev's home for the the next bit. the latest developments, we want to question get you up to date on the suspects plan to attack new york city. the suspects came up with it on the fly last thursday and planned to drive here to times square that night to explode six new bombs. officials say if not for this shootout last week with watertown police, tamerlan and dzhokhar tsarnaev may have gone through with it. they had just car jacked an suv. overnight the carjacking victim provided new details to "the boston globe " that he feared for his life in the car.
don't look at me he said tamerlan yelled at him. i don't remember anything the victim said. later tamerlan okay, you are chinese. i'm a muslim. chinese are friendly to muslims. the victim responded we are so friendly to vuz mims. the victim was able to get away but the victim says during that ride the brothers hatched a new plan, drive to new york's times square and set off their remaining explosives. >> one was a pressure cooker bomb, similar to the two that exploded at the marathon. the other five were pipe bombs. >> reporter: dzhokhar was in times square last year posing with friends in a photo. luckily he didn't make it back this time. >> they had built these additional explosives and know they had the capacity to carry out the attacks. >> reporter: new york city officials say they have new surveillance cameras designed to prevent attacks like this. the nypd showed us how they can
flag an abandoned package before it explodes. >> the system gives the officers an alert says it is an abandoned package. >> and gives you an image and circles the package for you. >> shows where it was left. >> reporter: a source familiar with the hearing says dzhokhar know showed no reaction when the prosecutor explained he could face the death penalty. his mother in russia is defending her boys. seen in a family photo apparently taken in 2007. >> protect us, our kids, going to be safe. take my kids away from me. >> reporter: important to note this morning the fbi says there's no credible threat to new york or times square at this time. we are also following more breaking news this morning.
within the past hour, we hav learned the suspect's father who is in dagestan russia and planning to fly to the u.s. as early as today cannot and will not travel the for the next few days because he has gotten very sick. back to you, lester and savannah. >> thank you. we are following new developments on the airport delays tied to the automatic budget cuts that have frustrated thousands of passengers. lawmakers are working out a potential deal. kelly o'donnell is the capitol hill correspondent and is on the hill for us. good morning to you. >> reporter: by washington standards, this is pretty fast action. after days of anger from air travelers stuck by delays and loud complaints from congress from hotel and tourism industry, furious the economy would be hard hit if gridlock in the skies continued. so the senate came up with a deal last late night that gives the secretary of transportation flexibility to keep the air traffic controllers on the job.
there's no extra money in the budget, but instead of the required across-the-board cuts th can prioritize spending and take money from airport improvements to keep controllers working. this is a band-aid fix. the white house had been against giving any agency special treatment hoping congress would roll back all of the spending cuts. so there's been a lot of blame game over the cuts but the move is expected to ease some hassles of flying. >> kelly o'donnell, thank you very much. we are learning more about the civil war raging in syria. how will the obama administration respond to intelligence reports that chemical weapons had been used. richard engel is the chief correspondent. this was the red line the administration talked about. >> this is serious. the u.k. called it a war crime. now the world is watching to see if this is enough to convince washington to change course. after more than two years and
70,000 dead, the white house strongly suggested al-assad's regime has used chemical weapons against syrian rebels, but did it with so many caveats as to make a u.s. military response highly unlikely just for now. defense secretary hagel repeated a message the white house delivered to members of congress. >> in talking to our intelligence people here the last couple of hours they have a reasonable amount of confidence that some amount of chemical weapons was used. >> reporter: u.s. intelligence officials believe traces of sarin were found in blood samples of victims. president obama warned syria that using chemical weapons would be a game changer. >> a red line for us is we start to see a bunch of chemical weapons being utilized or moving around. >> i think it is obvious the red line has been crossed.
>> white house officials say they have too many questions about the origin of the weapons and how they were used and want a u.n. investigation. but syria so far hasn't been cooperating with other inspectors or u.n. teams. and syrian rebels say bashar al-assad will take inaction from washington as approval. qatar, which funds and arms the rebels agrees. >> if he wants to try your reaction, no reaction you escalate. >> reporter: france, britain and israel have accused the syrian government of using small amounts of chemical weapons, but this time, unlike during the runup to the iraq war, washington is stressing the need for caution. the syrian opposition, to be clear, dunn want u.s. troops on the ground. they want access to more weapons and no-fly zone but to achieve that would likely require sustained bombings from the air by nato and the u.s. >> richard engel, thank you.
now following the story in bangladesh. the deadly building collapse. >> reporter: rioting has broken out in bangladesh as people are outraged over the worst industrial accident in that country's history. the death toll is still on the rise there with more than 300 people confirmed dead so far and police say the building's owner is on the run. there's some hope amid the rubble this morning as rescuers have pulled 62 people alive from the debris where they have been awaiting help for more than 40 hours. the building housed garment factories that made clothing for u.s. and european brands. lawmakers are investigating whether people living and working near the country's 6,000 fertilizer plants are at risk. this on the heels of the april 17th fire and explosion that killed 14 people in west texas and injured hundreds of others as it lay waste to much of that town. on thursday, president obama traveled to nearby waco, texas, to speak at a memorial service
for those lost in the explosion the fda is halting cucumber imports from a company in mexico after the vegetables were linked to 73 cases of salmonella in 18 states. no one has died from the outbreak. 27% of those sickens have had to be hospitalized. for more information, head to our website, today.com. mary thompson is at the new york stock exchange. how's it looking for closing out the week here, mary? >> we could close the week with a gain. that's the good news. in other news, the senate takes a step closer to ending tax-free internet shopping. a procedure clearing the way to allow states to tax on-line purchases. then the house will have to pass a bill. fred omarosa stepping down after one year at the job at the struggling internet giant and ten years ago apple launched itunes. they have continued to sell
songs at a rate of 15,000 per minute. the nfl draft kicked off last night and a rare year where a quarterback was not the first pick. eric fisher was the first to be snapped up chosen by kansas city, but a name that wasn't called in the first round, notre dame star manti te'o. he also became tabloid fodder after it was revealed his girlfriend, who he claimed had died was a hoax. we will have to wait until tonight, perhaps when second and third round drafts will be held. an amazing video from mexico. check out what happens when a pod of killer whales decide to tag along with a boat tour, jumping along in the waves, giving sightseers an amazing view and priceless photos. >> no doubt. >> and a heart attack. >> depends how close you are. >> that's a whale watching expedition. >> very cool.

leaders. all five living presidents at the dedication of the george w. bush presidential center. >> when all of the living former presidents are together, it's also a special day for our democracy. we have been called the world's most exclusive club, and we do have a pretty nice clubhouse. >> reporter: joined by the first lady, they took the day off. barack obama and barbara bush talking up a storm and bill clinton joking about being a member of the bush family. >> my mother told me not to talk too long today and barbara, i will not let you down. and you beat me to be a grandfather. i congratulate you and laura for it. >> reporter: laura bush spoke of compassion. >> i remember his quiet visits with the families of the fallen sharing their stories and tears. >> reporter: for the first president bush seriously ill
last year it was something of a coming out. >> this is very special for barbara and me. >> reporter: mr. bush stood and waved to a crowd already on its feet. the elder bush, sporting his classic socks. bill clinton even tweeting out a behind-the-scenes moment. on a day set aside to honor george w. bush. >> there was a time in my life when i wasn't likely to be found in a library, must less found one. >> reporter: reflecting on turbulent terms the president and his family watching from the front row became choked with emotion. >> whatever challenges come before us, i will always believe our nations best days lie ahead. god bless. emotion, there was humor today. president clinton gently teasing that these libraries are a way for former presidents to rewrite their history. lester, back to you. before the ceremony, matt
sat down with three generations of bush women and barbara bush made news when matt asked if son jeb should run for president in 2016? >> she's by far the best qualified man, but no. really don't. i think it is a great country. there are a lot of great families and it's not just for families or whatever. there are other people out there that are very qualified and we have had enough bushes. >> how's that playing in washington? david gregory moderator of "meet the press." good to see you. >> good morning. >> i think an endearing thing about mrs. bush is she speaks her mind. what is the read in political circles about what she said. >> if you wonder where w got it, you know he comes from his mother in dg disarmingly candid or direct as president clinton said yesterday. i think the effect is potential ly chilling on her son jeb bush but it can be intrerpted as a
shot to hillary clinton as well. saying there is more than the clintons and the bushes who can run america. i think this is a mother's prerogative. i think she is an astute political observer. look at the humanity in this. this is someone who has seen her husband go through the riggers of the presidency and policy and watched her son be vilified after two terms in the white house. you can understand a mother who doesn't want her other son to go through that. >> what position does this put that clip will be played over and over again if he decides to run? >> my sense is that former governor bush has some irritation with the political class. we got some glimpse of that as he came out with his book on immigration. that said he is a hot pros pekt in the republican party as someone that can redefine conservatism and expand the base of the party. i think he is looked at seriously. he will be able to raise a great deal of money and another concern is that jeb bush's son
george p. is someone who is quite politically ambitious, running for land commissioner in texas and he wants to raise a lot of money as well and has a bright political future. never know if dad will step out of the way to clear the path for his son. >> david gregory, thank you very much. there is one other moment at the bush library dedication to highlight. it came from the former president himself. >> i am really happy that mila's mother and father, jenna and henry could make it here today. thank you all for coming. so if you don't have anything you are doing in the morning, tune in to the "today" show. jenna is a krrnt. thereby continuing the warm relationships the bush family has with the press. >> jenna as we have seen her with tears streaming down. so cute. >> if you don't have anything
else to do, the operative line. >> a ringing endorsement. >> if you are busy, move on but leave the tv on if you would, thank you. coming up, conrad murray, michael jackson's former doctor is speaking out in an exclusive live interview. and martha stewart stuns matt. revealing something about her personal life that you would never x. it might stun you, too.
♪ coming en minutos hablamos sobre coming up in a few minutes, we will talk about an ad that shocked a lot of people. hyundai had to pull the ade ad and apologize because apparently the premises is that somebody tries to commit suicide. as i understand it, this automaker's way of saying the car doesn't have emissions that are dangerous. nevertheless it was insensitive. >> i can't imagine the story meeting where they are like this
last night. those hotspots there, they are out but now crews are worried that the wooden building which was built way back in 1884 could eventually collapse, because of all that damage. we are happy to report nobody was hurt during the fire. the man accused in a drunken driving crash that kills three members of a dailicy city family is expected in court. police say dennis demecedo had alcohol in his system when he crashed into a car killing a woman and both sons. he will be in court to set a preliminary hearing date. this shut down the streets in oakland at about 3:00 this morning. somebody noticed this grenade on 48th avenue and international boulevard that is near the fruitdale border. it took investigators an hour and a half to determine the grenade was not a threat to the public. scary scene there. happy ending.
let's dhcheck in with meteorologist, christina loren, telling us about a smoking hot weekend. >> you are right on, as usual, mr. kelly. today, we are going to get a little bit of a break. take advantage of it. temps are so getting into the weekend. we have onshore winds showing you they are coming out of the west. that will keep your temperatures in the upper 70s in places like livermore, 80, in gilroy, 74 in san jose. we lose that natural coolant tomorrow. as a result, temperatures are going to soar. 84, inland saturday, up to 90 on sunday. let's check that drive. good morning. much better now. north bound 880 through oakland. past the coliseum. after the earlier crash took a while to clear. it has been a half hour since that cleared. we are looking at a slower drive heading up into the area. 880 southbound, still slow into milpedis is it wrong to buy an entire outfit
noochlt >> who can forget that moment? it was pandemonium on the plaza where psy had us all dancing to his hit "gangnam style." there is the david gregory dancing video. we can get off of that video right now. >> it is fun when it is david but when it is a vanna. >> it is friday morning, 26th of april, 2013 as we say hello to our crowd. >> coming up, martha stewart. i think she will surprise you. certainly surprised matt.
we will have a preview of their very candid conversation coming up. and six men drifting thousands of miles across the pacific ocean on a small wooden raft. later, survivors of the boston bombings, a mom and daughter, who are now recovering in the same hospital room share their emotional story with natalie. >> we want to begin this half hour with a "today" exclusive. in a moment, dr. conrad murray convicted of involuntary manslaughter in the death of michael jackson speaks from his jail cell but first new details on dr. murray's attempt to have his conviction overturned. mike, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. at this point dr. murray's appeal will likely be released early by the fall he concludes the trial was unfair and as michael jackson's personal physician he did nothing wrong. >> before dr. murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter and sentenced to
four years, the max, he told savannah that michael jackson's death had nothing to do with the care he provided. >> do you feel guilty he provided? >> i don't feel guilty, because i didn't do anything wrong. >> reporter: in his appeal, murray said his trial was fundamentally unfair, the trial judge was biased an the jury should have been sequestered because of the media frenzy around the case. his goal not to get out of jail early but to get his life back. >> you wouldn't be a convicted felon for one thing. it may effect his ability to practice medicine in the future. >> reporter: murray could be a turning point witness in the jackson family's suit against the promoters of the king of pop's doomed concert tour. if it led to the fatal dose of proep follow, what is the role of the promoter who aeg believed would pay his fee.
>> the jackson family will argue, look aeg is responsible for everything that conrad murray did wrong because they put the pressure on him. they reminded him they are the ones in charge. >> reporter: murray said so far he has not been subpoenaed to testify in the suit against aeg but is on the witness list for both sides. aeg says the company didn't hire murray and had nothing to do with jackson's medical care. murray says he might be called to testify but will likely plead the fifth if he is called. savannah? >> all right. thank you so much. dr. conrad murray is with us on the phone from the men's central jail in los angeles. his attorney valerie watts is also here and she's handling the appeal. good morning to both of you. >> good morning, savannah. >> as we heard from our correspt shortening your sentence. you are expected to be out in a few months. as i understand it, this is a chance to clear your name.
do you think it will be sufficient to do that? and do you expect you should be able to practice medicine again? >> well, i hope that -- i think my attorney has done an excellent job in her brief. i hope that the courts will see that an injustice has occurred this occasion and if that is the case i will have my license and be able to continue to practice medicine to give services to all of those seek it, but especially to the unserved. >> in your appeal you blame michael jackson, the jury, the judge and your lawyers. i wonder if having reflected on these faks now you take any personal responsibility for what happened to michael jackson? >> not any responsibility as it relates to his death. i'm sorry that i have lost michael as a friend and as a patient. being a doctor is such a huge impact on our lives, when you
have to tell a family member somebody has passed away and we couldn't save them. it is a tremendous loss. it's so much pain and i have lost a very dear friend and a very dear person to me. it's going remain with me the rest of my life but i'm not going to accept responsibility for anything i did not do. >> let me push back on that a little bit. he died from this powerful an necessary at the timic called propofol as you know. i know your theory he injected himself with propofol. however, are you not responsible for bringing the drug in the room and leaving him unattended? >> i'm not. i met michael jackson when he had his own stash of medication. i tried to get propofol from michael jackson.
he may not have liked the approach i took but the circumstances were to get him away from the agent. >> speaking of the night he died and just those actions, you left the room. you left him unattended when propofol on the package label says it requires constant monitoring. >> i left the room, yes but no propofol in his way that he should have used. i didn't leave propofol that was available to michael to take on his own actions and cause his own demise. i did not do that. >> let me let valerie in on this. >> michael was not on a propofol drip when dr. murray left he room. he was on a saline drip. the effect was out of his system. >> that's dr. murray's contention. there was a larger amount found in michael jackson's body at autopsy and you don't dispute the fact that propofol was prescribed by dr. murray and under your own theory, michael
jackson gained access to it when many dr. murray left the room. >> he gained access but whether it came from dr. murray or other sources is not established. >> what has life been like in jail for you? >> it has been one of my most horrendous experience. i have only survived because of the loving hope and the support that i get from various individuals and especially would like to say my girlfriend nicole alverez has been tremendous. never missed a visitation or failed to not call on a daily basis and let me know i'm not being forgotten. it is those things that keeps me going, my children and a bunch of other people who have written from all over the world who encourage me. >> do you regret not taking the stand in your own defense? i don't know. >> i don't know. i didn't think that the
prosecution had solved, or proved their case. i did not -- i i don't know if i would have taken the stand i would have added anything more. the problem is my attorneys the case was not handled well. there was an on obstruction of justice when the prosecutor himself destroyed the evidence in the open courtroom. that was obstruction of justice and that was unbelievable. almost something impossible to live. >> appreciate you getting up early, calling us from your jail cell. we appreciate it. and valerie, thank you. appreciate that. and now a check of the weather from al. >> thank you so much. we have friends. the parkinsons walk coming up. beautiful weather for that. you will enjoy that. for the weekend ahead we have a slight risk of strong storms stretching from texas in to the mississippi river valley. rain in the pacific northwest. sunny and hot through the

>> i wanted to find him and meet him and thank him. he was just holding my gaze the entire time. he was getting right up in my face. he kept saying, i was going to be okay. and just to stay with him and keep my eyes open. it was really difficult just feeling so tired, because all of the blood was leaving my body, like i turned white, my lips turned blue. so everything was tingly. i just felt like i was fading. >> reporter: what was that reunion like when he came here and you got to meet him for the first time? >> the moment i saw him walk through that door and just -- i just looked at him, and i knew it was him. i just started crying. and he got teary-eyed and he came over and hugged me, grabbing my hand. >> so many people have been so supportive and have come to, you know, offer their support. other fellow amputees, a couple of marines. one of the gentleman, i believe is gabriel, he has the same
exact injury as mine. and he came in here with his legs. and i was just amazed. he goes rock climbing. sounds like there's nothing he can't do. granted, a few years younger than i am. but sounds like if you have the spirit and you know that you want to do it, i can absolutely achieve it. >> reporter: and you mentioned, of course, the most important thing, you have your daughter here celebrating her 18th birthday. >> yes, today. >> reporter: today. >> the marines, when they were here, gabriel was saying they like to say they now have two birthdays. their original birthday and then the day that they got injured, because you start a new life. >> i mean, it is difficult sometimes. like, sometimes it really just hits you. but other times you're, like, wow. you just look and, wow, that was my life, that happened. >> there's times when everything just kind of overwhelms you, but i just have to really -- i know in my heart that i'm going to be
okay. as long as i'm strong enough or want it enough, i will have a different life, a different reality. >> reporter: and you've got your whole family around you helping you all the way. >> i do. i do. they're wonderful. i just want to see everything in their lives. i'm not ready to leave. so, yeah. if it's with new legs, it's with new legs. >> and celeste and sydney are getting stronger each and every day. but, as you know, savannah, with their injuries, it's going to be a long road physically and emotionally. but they have such an incredible support system. in fact, their whole family said they're not just boston strong but corkran strong. >> well, they're proving that. it's wonderful the gentleman came and said i had the same injury as you and -- >> gabriel ramirez, exactly. a wounded veteran who came in and just lifted their spirits when they needed it the most. >> he personified hope for sure. natalie, thank you. i know you'll have a lot more on this story with "rock center

>> four to be exact. robin williams, diane keaton, and topher grace, katherine heigl. it's a very cute movie. i was surprised at how naughty it is. a lot of sexual humor. a lot of bed-hopping in the film. kind of a fun, mindless comedy. >> matthew mcconaughey has one, an independent film called "mud." >> it's the best movie of the weekend. it's not playing everywhere, but it's worth your time to seek it out. it's a guy living on the run, living on an island in the mississippi river. these two young boys happen upon him and develop a friendship with him. reese witherspoon is also in the film. you see her there in a smaller role. she's had to cancel some of her talk show appearances. >> she had a rough week. >> following her arrest. she's not doing much pr for it. >> and quickly, the musical acts, kenny chesney has a new album? >> yes, "life on a rock." it's album number 16 for him. another album where it combines his love for island life and country life. a duet with willie nelson on there.

meant something to someone, but with texting and tablets and smart phones, is it the beginning of the end for typing as we know it? ♪ once upon a time, it was the unmistakable sound of work getting done. >> typewriters were an amazing invention. these machines were in every office, on everybody's desk. it really was a big deal with the comparison like now of having the latest gadget. >> reporter: remember typing class, where getting an "a" "b" or "c" depended on how fast you could type them out on a keyboard? and if you made a mistake -- corrections was a few ways, backspace to the mistake they made. write over the mistake, a typewriter eraser. put the sheet in the machine, type over the mistake. >> reporter: in retrospect, a technological oversight. so we moved on to the computer where unlike the typewriter,
your fingers could dance across the keyboard with reckless abandon, because at least you had this guy. but fast forward to today, and the computer has grown up -- or down, as in size. suddenly, instead of 10 fingers to type, you only need two. and who needs delete when you've got auto correct? because that never gets you in trouble. in the palm of our hands, typing became texting, and texting took off. americans sent an estimated 6 billion texts every single day. the average teen sends 60 texts a day. 60 texts a day! who are these kids? we went to a technology class at a middle school in queens to see if typing really is losing out to texting. what are you better at? >> i would say i'm better at texting. >> reporter: really? >> yes. >> reporter: have you ever written long sentences, paragraphs, pages, anything over texts? >> papers. >> reporter: what do you mean paper?
>> i did my book report. >> reporter: you did a whole book report on your phone? >> yes. >> reporter: and it can be a struggle for today's teachers to help kids rediscover the lost art of typing. >> it's the arrogance of youth. the arrogance that i know everything there is to know. i text all the time. i can text quickly, why do i need this typing skill? we take a little while to crack them out of that notion, disabuse them of the idea that every problem can be solved with a smartphone. >> reporter: just as this generation has gotten comfortable with tapping two fingers to text, the latest technology has us down to one. >> now you can kind of slide and glide to type words and phrases and sentences. so some companies like swift key, swipe, and others are making it so that as you're gliding, it's automatically starting to learn what you're trying to write. it will appear up on the screen and you can choose that. >> reporter: now if only someone could find a way to dial with your -- [ buzzer ] that's technology i could get -- well, behind. you'd be surprised how fast these kids are typing. and we were talking about it, to
put this to the test, i would type a paragraph with 10 fingers. you text the same one with two. hands down, three out of three, they beat me. >> you're kidding. >> reporter: these kids are so good. they are just typing at such a fast rate with their foeps. you sit them down, they don't know what they're doing. >> well, really -- >> you know, every office in america has the keyboards so you're better off -- >> that's why they're trying to get these kids -- >> i use three fingers. i never actually learned to type. >> you're a pecker. >> we're so obsolete. >> -- and i would type letters to my parents and my -- >> yeah, and no fingers soon. we'll just be talking and -- >> hold on, a fax is coming in. .

loans or anything like that. >> reporter: no woodworking or table saws here. that dusty shop class from a by-gone era? it has turned into a high-tech training ground that's churning out well-paid workers. >> just walk me through what we're doing here. >> what i'm doing is fly-cutting the part. it makes a nice clean finish on it. >> reporter: as part of massachusetts's new amp it up program, students use state-of-the-art machines, computers, even robots to learn how to code, program, and design. >> it's better than sitting in a classroom to me. >> reporter: pathfinder regional vocational school has become wildly popular. >> there is a waiting list for the shop right now for kids that want to get into it. >> reporter: and mary jane says her students have little trouble once they're out. in 2011, every pathfinder graduate landed a job in their field. >> the machine shops are clamoring for people right now. they can't expand, because they don't have highly skilled people. >> reporter: demand is only going to increase over the next decade. massachusetts expects 100,000
new advanced manufacturing jobs, the most growth of any sector. many of the new jobs will be in biotechnology and involve creating medical components. >> the question is, how do we make sure that the opportunity is there to get the skills levels across the need in our economy. >> reporter: governor deval patrick's answer involves changing perceptions. >> colleges right for many, but not for everybody. >> i can break down a machine and set up a brand-new job. >> reporter: did you think about college? >> i did when i was younger. i knew from a very early age i didn't want to do it. it's not for me. >> reporter: but michael rhodes says he loves his job not only because he's just 19 and can afford his new car and save for a house. there's something else. >> it is easily the hardest thing i've done in my life. >> reporter: on the floor and back in the 21st century classroom, part of the draw for manufacturing's newest faces is they won't be working in their grandfather's factory. >> my father was, like, working on asomably lines assembling
things, doing the same thing, repetitive motion. it's not. >> so officials are rolling this program out nationally, because it will become very popular. and manufacturing employers are so desperate to fill the open jobs and they wanted me to give you something. when they're not making medical devices and things of that nature, they make cool games. >> wow. >> so make sure savannah and matt get this game they designed. you can play this at home. >> i will. >> take it home. >> it's heavy, too. >> yes. >> amazing, and i love to see them at that very skilled work. great to see the manufacturing sector doing so well. i don't know if i -- it's a two-hander. help me, craig melvin. great story. thank you so much. coming up next, a live performance from sarah burrellis.

senate took action to end this so we'll get a vote in the house, probably go through to get basically move some money around inside the faa to get people back in the control towers and alleviate some of the problems. i think we agree that's good news, get commerce back, get people moving through the airports. people are pointing out this morning that it came about because of the outcry of people who use planes and left alone some of the other things, head start, preschool. >> meals on wheels. >> for low-income families. >> those cuts remain in place by the white house's account, 70,000 preschoolers will not have head start because of what's happening due to sequestration. so a little imbalance. >> the whole point of the sequester was that these cuts would be so traumatic for both parties, for the republicans and the democrats, that they would get together and come up with a deal, but now we're seeing this piecemeal where like you said air travelers, many business folks. >> squeaky wheel. >> the squeaky wheel gets the most attention and results and do we want our country to run
that way? it's crazy. >> i think it goes without saying, too, so many people are hurting from the sequestration. lot of people are losing hours, losing their jobs in the process as well. there has to be some resolution fairly quickly. >> they're the silent victims. we're hearing about the air travelers because you have pilots getting on the planes saying that one hour delay, blame the u.s. government. but the head start mom i saw one story on a head start mom in ohio who is like i don't know what to do. >> not to mention seniors who need meals on wheels. take two, a beautiful magazine cover, boston magazine one week after the events tributes pouring in around the country. the new issue of "boston" magazine a tribute. all running shoes in the shape of a heart, i think there are 120 of them, that they worked together to make that, those are all shoes that ran in the boston marathon, beautiful piece of art. >> such a simple statement.
>> gorgeous. >> the headline reads "we will finish the race." >> they should put that in a museum. it is just amazing. it's like an art installation. >> when i clicked on the link you see beautiful tribute to boston runners, don't know what to expect and i clicked on it and you have that swell. i started tearing up but they're tears of joy because you know so many of those people will finish the race. there was a woman yesterday from rhode island, she had her leg amputated from the knee down and talked about how friends and family helped her persevere, heather albott and she said i'm going to finish that race. you're just like yes, this is what it is about. >> natalie, some people you talked to who have lost legs and said they're going to give me new legs and i'll make it across the finish line next year with my new legs. >> just to see you heard so much the boston strong but you're really seeing it among the victims who they have a long way to go still emotionally, physically. >> financially as well. >> financially. this is just the beginning of what they have to face. the insurance won't cover a lot
of the things that they're going to need. >> we can't forget them. this will fade into memory and we have to keep remembering them because this is going to be something as we said something they're going to be dealing with for years. >> a new reality. absolutely a new reality. but to hear the positive message and in fact the mother and daughter who i interviewed you're going to see that again tonight on "rock center" to hear what they have to say, inspirational message and really they don't hate the bombers who did this. they say i believe you know that young man, those two young men were sick and that's really it. they don't hate them though. >> pretty graceful. hopefully that iconic cover of "boston" magazine will help people remember. let's move to our take three a little bit lighter. if you want to feel old i'm about to give you a birthday. sunday marks the tenth anniversary of itunes. >> wow. >> it's been ten years -- >> i was 8 when they started that? >> so you were a baby and you didn't know how to do math.

he's pleaded not guilty to the charges. he'll be in court today to set a preliminary hearing date. this shut down streets in oakland this morning. around 3:00 someone noticed a grenade on 40th avenue near national boulevard near the fruitvale border. no waters, it's inactive. it took investigators an hour and a half to determine the grenade was not a threat to the public. didn't want to take any chances there, though. we'll have a look at weather and traffic right after this.

break out summer greer. great beach weather sunday through thursday. hope have you a fantastic weekend. >> and that's your latest weather. willie? >> all right, thanks a lot. this morning on "today's health" lies we tell the doctor. we've been guilty of leaving out maybe part of the story when we talk to our doctors and that has turned out to be a big mistake. dr. carrie peterson is "today's" women's health contributor. >> good morning. >> why do we lie to the doctor when we are asked basic questions? >> some people are embarrassed to admit something they're doing, sometimes there's a stigma associated with it, sometimes people don't realize the issue may impact their health so it's multifactorial. >> let's run through scenarios, the first one what's new in your life, you say not much, same old same old. things are going poorly for you at work, you were passed off for a promotion or laid off. what is the health risk to these lives? >> the health risk is moderate. woman usually spends about
one-third of their time at work, and that can really take a toll on their medical health. first off the immediate thing you can see it can elevate the blood pressure. if a woman is coming on a lunch break and it's high, the first thing i'll ask is are you having a stressful day because it impacts that quickly and some other interesting statistics, if you're under extreme stress, you are 69% more likely to misuse your birth control which can lead to unplanned pregnancies and if you're unemployed and have newly lost your job that can raise your risk of having a heart attack, so it's a real problem. >> even the most basic question yields all that for a doctor. interesting. let's move on to the next one, this is about drinking, a familiar question for a doctor, how often do you drink? socially, only on weekends when the truth is you probably do a few happy hours throughout the week as well. what is the risk here? >> the risk here is a high risk and the problem is why are you misrepresenting yourself. is there an issue with
dependency or are you underestimating how much you're actually drinking. a woman should have no more than one drink a day. many will underestimate how much they're drinking because bartenders have big glasses, and overpour, one drink may be the equivalent of two drinks and there's immediate risks and long-term risks. the immediate risks if you have one night of drinking you're not going to have a good night's sleep, more prone to injuries, causes you to feel bloated and in the long-term it can cause breast cancer, heart disease among other problems. >> if you have a glass of wine with dinner seven nights in a week that's okay. >> that's okay but four alcoholic beverages per night that's a bingeing, a problem. >> let's move on to smoking, an uncomfortable conversation for some people. do you smoke, the doctor asks, you say not really, maybe once in a while when the truth is you puff at least once a day or several times a week. i think i know the answer to this but what is the risk? >> the risk is high here. many people don't want to tell
their doctors that they smoke because they don't want to hear the lecture, but let's just go over a few numbers here because it's really going to impact how your doctor cares for you. one cigarette exposes you to 40 carcinogens so because of the increased risk of cancer, lung, breast or cervical your doctor may screen aggressively so it's going to change your care. if you're a woman and take oral contraception, that can increase your risk of blood clots and strokes so your doctor may want to find other ways to help protect you against pregnancy so there are factors to take into account. another thing if you're having trouble getting pregnant and you smoke, smoking decreases your fertility so it's something you need to take into account. good news, though, if you quit smoking it cuts your rate of premature death by half. >> a really quick one in before we go, simple question, how you're doing. you're saying you're fine but you're sad inside. >> that leads to depression, social isolation, self-medication with drugs and alcohol and there can be
underlying medical causes your doctor can test you for and reverse the symptoms. >> tell the truth to the doctor. >> be forthcoming. >> thank you, dr. carrie peterson thank you so much. >> my pleasure. coming up next, beyonce to ben affleck, headlines from hollywood when we come back. ien. so here's a few reasons to choose university of phoenix. our average class size is only 14 students. our financial tools help you make smart choices about how to pay for school. our faculty have, on average, over 16 years of field experiene. we'll help you build a personal career plan. we build programs based on what employers are looking for. our football team, is always undefeated. and leading companies are interested in our graduates. we'll even help you decorate your new office. ok. let's get to work. in 14 hundred 92. nice!
