am i doing all right? can you hear me? all right. back to -- back to the flooding video. we have seen almost a foot of rain so far this month in parts of minnesota and you can see the water is just creeping up to the roads, to some homes. and unfortunately it takes several days before these waters recede. so we are going to see scenes like this for quite some time. we also had funnel clouds spotted in southeastern minnesota. it was an ominous look to the sky. you can see the storms are now pushing east in buffalo and indianapolis. these are areas where we are going to see some of the most severe storms today. we are looking at heavier downpours. that's going to perhaps lead to flash flooding. buffalo, it will take until later on this evening before you see the showers and storms. in indianapolis more like this morning. because of this rain moving eastward through areas like
7:15 am
cleveland and erie, pennsylvania. that's where we have flash flood watches in effect. we could end up seeing them accumulate quite a bit. widespread, 1 to 2 inches of rain. we could end up with that and perhaps as much as 3 to 5 inches in some areas like scranton, pennsylvania. that's a look at the weather across the country. your local forecast coming up in just 30 seconds. running here. running there. running into things. running out of things. making runs. running out of more things. making more runs. running to. running from. running around in circles. sometimes you like running. but wouldn't it be nice if you didn't always have to? introducing target subscriptions. free scheduled delivery of your favorite essentials. now running out no longer requires running out.

7:17 am
this so-called possible arrangement with his former team. that would mean both the u.s. and germany could then advance. it of course goes against fifa rules and the coach fastly denies. the u.s. coach says there is no way that he and the german coach are working together fixing thursday's game with a tie that would advance both teams. i'm going to do everything to get to the round of 16, he said. there's no time to have friendship calls. it's about business now. after sunday's portugal match, he also criticized the tournaments organizers. >> they play in amazon, locations where they don't have to travel much. everything was done for the big favorite to go and move on. >> as a player, he helped germany win the world cup in 1990 and later he coached the german national team. but he isn't the only one with close ties to germany.
7:18 am
five members of team usa have german mothers and fathers. all these players were actively recruited by the coach. notable names were left off the roster including america's all time leading scorer, landon donovan, one of the biggest names in the game. he also took heat after saying, it is not possible for the u.s. to win the cup. >> even though people don't agree with his decisions, they're basically saying he knows something we don't and we're going to see if this thing's going to work. >> he studied to be a baker, hopes he's got the right recipe for viktsry and the represent butation his team has earned already tastes pretty sweet. >> there's a lot of respect now from our opponents. >> well, again, if there is a draw possibly between the u.s. and germany on thursday, both teams advance to the next roud.
7:19 am
this is going to be the david versus goliath of the world cup. remember, they did tie ghana. so i believe that we will win. >> i believe! >> can i just say, oh my god. >> it was so heartbreaking. >> it's great to watch you move through the stages. >> i'm not through them. i'm not even close. >> germany tied ghana. they beat portugal 4-0. we beat ghana. so thursday's the match. >> it is a match. >> would you take a tie? >> yes. >> i wouldn't rig a draw. >> right, no. >> i would take it absolutely. >> come in the original room. thursday's the big game. the coach had this to say yesterday just to put it all to rest. he says, we have that fighting spirit and we will give everything in every game. we will go to recife and we will
7:20 am
give everything to beat germany. that is our goal. don rights in, give me a tie all day. prevents injuries. michelle says, if you can't play with your whole heart for the whole tournament, then you don't deserve to win. coming up at 8 krok, this is the gift that keeps giving. the coach of mexico. you got to love this guy. every time they score, he tackles his own players. and it's even better in slow motion. more coming up, by go team isa. back to you. >> you should see him when he gets mad though. >> you're going down, right? >> yes, i'll be there thursday morning. >> all that begging for the assignment paid off. >> and carson, thank you very much. coming up the investigation into one woman's claim she was kicked out of kfc because of her granddaughter's scars. and we will check in with al who is on his way to 30 rock

we'll check in in just a moment. meantime we're looking at headlines on a tuesday morning. the irs commissioner is back to capitol hill today to continue his testimony about the problems plaguing that agency. last night's hearing was extremely contentious. the commissioner answered questions about how thousands of e-mails suddenly went missing. three months after the malaysian airline flight 370 disappeared, searchers are about to begin looking at a new part of the indian ocean. that plane once again, the search zone is shifting hundreds of miles to the southwest. and could your kids be getting too much of a good thing from their morning bowl of cereal? it's what a new report is suggesting. children could be getting unhealthy amounts of vitamins. more on this in the next half hour. also the dirty truth. if you're doing flying like we are, not going to want to hear this. this report might make you think twice about using a tray table or reading the magazines on the
7:32 am
next airplane you fly on. also ahead, a little more than nine months ago we did a series called born today. one couple was generous enough to share their moment of conception through ivf. we'll talk to them live about their big news. >> that's good news. first let's begin with an update on a story we told you about last week. an investigation is now underway into a woman's claims that she and her granddaughter were kicked out of a kfc restaurant because of the little girl's facial scars. katy tur is following this one for us. katy, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, matt. the family of victoria wilcher says she was asked to leave a kfc because of her physical appearance. but this morning a local newspaper is claiming it was all a hoax to raise money. 3-year-old victoria wilcher gained national attention after reports a kfc in mississippi asked her to leave because the scars on her face was disturbing customers. >> i say it's one bad decision. one person in that store and kfc
7:33 am
would never condone that. >> look at that little girl. she's beautiful to me. she's not scaring me. >> reporter: according to the mississippi-based leader-call newspaper, sources close to the investigation told the paper it was an elaborate publicity stunt to gain money. saying security footage does not put victoria or her grandmother who claimed to be with her in the kfc or another kfc the day it supposedly occurred. this morning a spokesperson for kfc tells nbc news we have taken this report very seriously from the beginning. since our franchisee was unable to verify the incident in the investigation, they hire add third-party consultant to help resolve the matter. we hope to have the findings soon and are committed to the $30,000 donation to assist with victoria's medical bills no matter the outcome. victoria's family is denying the hoax.
7:34 am
a posting on the victoria's victories page had the post, i promise it's not a hoax. i never thought this would blow up the way it has. the article circling the web calling this a hoax is untrue. please do not believe untrue media. i personally watched this family go without to provide for victoria. they have not and would not do anything to hurt victoria in any way. certainly a sad situation for that little girl. it's unclear what would happen with the rest of the money the family was able to raise. matt? >> all right. thank you very much. terrible if that's a hoax. >> yeah. let's get a check of the weather now from dylan dreyer. >> "today's" weather is brought to you by new nexium 24 hours for frequent heartburn. now available without a prescription. >> and now that we're racing through june, let's look at july. here's a prediction coming out from noaa. below normal temperatures in the northern plains, which is what
7:35 am
we are seeing today. down in the southeast, above normal temperatures. and out west including areas like seattle down into california, it is going to stay above normal. as for precipitation, most of the country looks normal. drier than normal across the gulf coast states and wetter than normal through the rockies. we'll keep an eye out for all that. we are looking at the chance for some strong storms through the panhandle of oklahoma and into texas. that's where we could see some hail and damaging wind gusts. but further east through the ohio river valley and the tennessee river valley. that's where we could see isolated torrential downpours. we could end up with 3 to 5 inches in some areas. as for severe weather, you could get stronger thunderstorms. but we're not looking at a widespread outbreak. up through the northeast, and the mid-atlantic, temperatures look really nice just like yesterday. we should top out in the 80s with low humidity. enjoy it. that's a look at the weather
7:36 am
hey thank you dylan, 7:35 now, we have some gusty wind in the forecast, but temperature wise, really hard to beat numbers like we're expecting today. mid-70s on the way to the peninsula. you'll hit the upper 60s here in san francisco. we'll see a comfortable day, little fog rolling over san bruno right now, enough there to keep your temperatures for today. but just at the coast and around the bay, you'll hit about 67 degrees in the san francisco within 82 degrees in the south bay, rare chance for some summer rain. we'll tell you when, coming up. >> and that is the latest forecast. >> thank you. as we've been telling you all morning, tomorrow is a big day for us. that is when "today" will start its simulcast on sirius xm radio. >> if you have to head out to work before you finish watching our show, we have great news for you. now you can take us with you on yor commute. we think that's good news. it's called "today" show radio on sirius xm.

[ male announcer ] don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis you may bruise more easily and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop.

seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. those three important reasons are why i'm shooting for something better. eliquis.

biggest risk is hail and strong winds. also down pours near cleveland and pennsylvania. and scattered showers and storms stretching into the southeast. then tomorrow that slight risk expands a little bit. we're looking at some strong storms from montana down into the rockies again. we'll keep a close eye on that. and those showers and storms will spread into the northeast. we could end up with some isolated locations picking up about 3 to 5 inches of rain. hey, thank you, dylan. 8:34 now. the weather story of the day is that we have some very gusty wind on the way. really, as we head throughout the afternoon hours and into tonight, you can see from this live picture, the golden gate bridge, that wind is keeping our sky nice and clear. i want to show you what it looks like over downtown oakland, a little hazy here. but you can actually make out the bay bridge, off in the distance. it's that clear out there right now. so as we head throughout the day today, a lack of those low clouds, temperatures are going to be warmer. we'll hit 89 in the north bay,
8:35 am
82 for the south bay, and as we get into the rest of the week, temperatures stay comfortable. forecast. >> all right. let's turn it over to matt. >> all right. thank you very much. this morning we have more of our special series shine a light. issues that are important to us. carson focuses on getting kids to eat healthy. >> i'm doing what i can to help in childhood hunger and obesity. along the way i've met several people who were truly devoted to the cause, but the coolest has got to be ron finley. take a look. ron finley of south-central los angeles had a little trouble with the law. >> i want to flip the script, flip the paradigm on what we consider gangster. i think taking care of your neighborhood is gangster. i think growing your own food, to me that's gangster. >> he started with a patch of burned out grass in the front of his house.
8:36 am
>> nobody said anything about the dead grass and the weeds, but you put a carrot in the ground, and all hell breaks loose. it's like they want to call s.w.a.t. we got a situation. somebody planted a carrot in the ground. it was against the law to plant edibles in our parkway. why don't you try putting healthy food in this neighborhood? okay, everybody in the garden. don't step on the corn. don't step on the strawberries. >> he ignored the citations, the threats of legal action. by planting any green space he could find. >> there's 26.5 million other americans. i live in a food desert. south-central los angeles. home of the drive-thru and the drive by. funny thing is drive-thrus are killing more than drive byes. we have grade school kids have been heart attacks. obesity is off the charts compared to, you know, other areas.
8:37 am
>> i don't see many markets with fresh vegetables around. >> and you won't for miles. that's what's terrible. but there's always a liquor store. they're real convenient. you can't get fresh food. >> i decided to visit his renegade oasis for a few tips how to help my school garden back in brooklyn. what else is down the row? >> bananas, kale, rosemary, collard greens. you in the hood, got to have collard greens. represent. >> what's with the sun flowers? >> it's almost like people can't look at them without smiling. >> people have the thought it can't grow in the concrete jungle. >> you can grow on concrete. just put soil on top. this is a mop bucket. >> what's this? it can grow anywhere. >> it shows you can grow anywhere.
8:38 am
okay. there you go. you a pro. >> it is that easy. >> really it is. >> how do i get kids excited about vegetables? >> i think if they grow it. >> having them do it with their own hands in the dirt. then it becomes their project. and they're saving their own lives. >> exactly. for them we need to keep it as simple as possible. and make it fun. >> because it is fun. >> thank you, man. appreciate it. >> honored. go build your garden. >> can i take a shovel with me? >> yeah, yeah. >> thank you. >> ron finley of south-central los angeles had a little trouble with the law. so he fought the law and ron finley won. >> i got the laws changed. now you're able in l.a. to grow food on your parkway. so it's a win. i want people just to plant. >> ron's a great guy. appreciate his time. he says you can expose kids at an early age and they'll be hooked for life.
8:39 am
>> i agree. mike, good to see you. >> mike and his organization does this all across the country, putting gardens in schools. you're helping me in brooklyn. what's at stake? >> our children's lives are at stake. we just heard a few moments ago less than 20% of children and adolescents right now are eating the daily recommended requirements for fruits, vegetables, and grains. less than 20%. so we're growing a population of children who are not well nourished. coupled with that we have obesity. it's out of control. it's tripled in three decades. and on top of that, you're dealing with food deserts. right now we have probably 6.5 million children living in a food desert. and we're dealing with populations of food insecurity as well. so we have this kind of stagnation going on here. you have kids becoming
8:40 am
overweight. they're not overweight because they're eating well. but poorly. >> we'd like to have gardens in every school. we have a time lapse of us building the garden in brooklyn. we're going there in a couple of weeks to see it. how's it going there so far? this is part of the kid's playground in concrete and you built this beautiful garden. >> we did with a lot of help from the community. and we also got a lot of help from the teachers. and what's really wonderful about what's happening here is that the community got really excited. this garden's going to feed children's families and homes and also encourage the community to get involved and perhaps start additional community garden. whap do what does that do? it reduces the number of food deserts. it teaches children how to eat properly and what good food is. >> we love the fact you're helping carson out. appreciate it very much. >> pleasure. >> and we need your help. if you want to help the cause,
8:41 am
go to crowd we've got big incentive to help in this. donate or raise $50 between now and july 2nd and you'll be entered to win a chance to see "the voice" season seven. thank you to mike. we appreciate it. >> thank you very much. coming up, jenna bush hager learns how to run from dinosaurs on the set of "jurassic world." then we'll speak to

9:02 am
managing work, life balance. the summit on working families. he spoke about the importance about his own family, the importance of having that balance in his own life and how much michelle has had to pinch hit for him. and vice versa. take a listen. >> you look at something like workplace flexibility. this is so important to our family. this was so important to our family when i was away, because if malia or sasha got sick or the babysitter did not show up, it was michelle who got the call. and fortunately she had an employer who understood if she needed to leave work in the middle of the day or change her schedule suddenly. in fact, actually, when she applied for the job, she brought sasha who was then about six months in her car seat into the interview. just to kind of explain, this is what you will be dealing with if you hire me.
9:03 am
so they signed up for that. and that flexibility made all the difference to our family. but a lot of working moms and dads can't do that. >> it's so trut. >> it is. >> we've been lucky in this job. we get called away very quickly. >> and we have supportive spouses who can do what they need to do to help fill in when we're not around. i love the part where he said she shows up in a job interview with sasha or malia in the car seat. i was thinking, jeez, that's a tough thing. >> with a baby. >> yeah. i don't know how the employer necessarily is going to take that. >> you're hiring both of us. when you think about the president, he's got the greatest gig going in a sense in that he works above the store. his commute is shorter. he can check in. hold this security briefing, i got to check on the kids. >> yeah. a lot of important issues that came up during this summit. of course the u.s. the only developed country to not offer
9:04 am
paid maternity leave which is pretty remarkable. other countries on that list. papua new guinea and oman. so time. it's way past time. >> when you're the president, you do get some perks though. >> there are a lot of perks. >> for example, take a look. >> you get to reach over the sneeze guard at the chipotle. >> you are not allowed to do that. i did that once and got my hand slapped. literally. >> where did you do it? >> on third avenue. >> it was at a chipotle too? >> i said can i -- and they went. sorry. >> you learned the lesson. >> i did. >> it's there for a reason. >> that's why it's there. it's not a suggestion. >> the funny thing is, i'm always like not that one, i want the other topping. it's really hard to tell them what they want. not those peppers, those peppers. >> leader of the freed world can lean over. >> you can lean in. but a lot of people saying that's overreach. >> literally the overreach.
9:05 am
>> and germs and all of that. >> but they're presidential germs. >> still. you know, i certainly hope this is not true, but remember that story we told you about last week that young girl, the family of a badly scarred 3-year-old girl who claimed when they went to a kentucky fried chicken in mississippi that her appearance, some of the workers complained that the girl's appearance was scaring some of the other diners. >> asked her to leave. >> apparently the young girl had been attacked by a pit bull. and they asked the girl to leave. well, there is a new report out this morning. the laural leader-call newspaper says the security footage does not put victoria or her grandmother who claimed to be with her at the time in that kentucky fried chicken at the time or any other kentucky fried chicken, for that matter, the
9:06 am
day the incident supposedly occurred. there are questions whether this is a fabricated story. >> the newspaper are citing sources that have knowledge of the situation. we haven't independently corroborated that. they're not seen in the security foot j in that kfc or any other kfc. but last week kfc publicly apologized. >> they did. they also donated $30,000 worth of money to help with the cost of surgery and other medical help she would need. and other people also stepped up and raised a lot of money. over $70,000 was raised for this young girl. kfc said in a new statement, we have taken this report seriously from the beginning since our franchisee was unable to verify into thinker internal investigation, they hired a third party consultant to help resolve the matter. we expect to have the findings of that investigation soon. but here's the great part of this. we are committed to the $30,000 donation to assist with victoria's medical bills no
9:07 am
matter the outcome. so even if this story was a huge hoax, they're still sticking by and helping this young girl out. >> yeah. >> why a family would do something like this, maybe desperation. we don't know. we don't know if it's a hoax. >> there are supporters on their facebook page victoria's victories, they deny it. we'll wait to see what happens. my phone is on. >> who's calling you? >> my friend john harris. >> hey, john. john knows you're on the air at this time. >> he's in central time. we were in the car. i had my phone on. >> john, he'll call you later. >> speaking of the car, how many times have you actually threatened your kids with, i will turn this car around. don't make the stop this car. >> my kids are pretty good. nowadays they're playing their games. my parents did it. and you wrote the book on this. >> literally it's called "don't make me stop this car." and my dad would stop the car. he used to threaten, you know
9:08 am
what i'm going to start to do? drop you off one by one. i got a brother i haven't seen in 23 years. i last saw him on exit 22. >> that's a horrible story. >> it is but there was more room in the car. >> we used to fight so bad, they threatened to put tape down the middle. then go like that purposely over the line to see. >> stop touching me. stop touching me. >> i hated that. >> well the survey, boredom bothering others and nonstop talking are the most common causes of road trip meltdown. kids are the first to lose it on long car trips. then followed by the wives and then husbands. so dads are the last to lose it. >> they're usually the ones driving, i suppose. they have to keep a level head. >> and the other causes, somebody touching. back in the day before we all had iphones or ipods, disagreement over the radio station. >> set things off there. i want this station.
9:09 am
i want sirius "today" show channel 108. that's what i want. >> you know the kids want to listen to that. >> they want the take. >> i can listen to hits 1. no i want to listen to "today." i want to listen to what hoda and kathie lee are drinking. that's what the kids want to know. >> we hope not. here is an incredible story. a pet dog survived two winters on her own after she disappeared. the family was on a trip. they were camping in the sierra nevada mountains in 2012. for two years the kids just about lost hope. they would go back weekend after weekend. they put missing fliers all over the place trying to find their dog murphy. the family says apparently a gunshot spooked the dog. but they never gave up hope. two weeks ago and two years later they went back to that same campground, the manager said he'd recently noticed a dog
9:10 am
hanging around. murphy apparently lost her collar while she was missing. now they found her. they were able to find her two years later. they did say at first the kids didn't recognize murphy because her pare her appearance had changed so much. but they finally saw her. she was rolling around with the kids and happy. so they knew this certainly is murphy again. >> so they implanted a microchip now. new collar. >> i've got to do that with my dog. smart to do. check of the weather for us. >> it would have been great if there was a little boy taking care of her all this time would have made it perfect. >> perfect story. >> let's show you what's going on as far as our weather's concerned. we got this slow-moving cold front coming on in here. it's bringing some showers. as we look, hello cleveland.

9:15 am
whether it's on your cars or your homes, understanding what is covered and what is not in your insurance is complicated. here with the truth behind some of the myths is a finance
9:16 am
contributor for the good morning. >> good morning, natalie. >> we've got a lot of good information to get to. first piece of advice about insurance is to read the fine print. are we looking for? >> it's all about peace of mind but you need to know the details so what you're paying for is what you'll get if you ever need to use your insurance. >> let's start with the first insurance myth. this has to do with auto insurance. you hear this about the red car premium. the color of the car can affect or impact your insurance premium. is there truth to this? >> absolutely not true. we hear this all the time. there are aspects if it's new or old or has safety features, that can impact your premium. really your credit score and marital status, these are more important. >> age, driving experience, all that factors in. >> true. >> let's move to health insurance and that myth. plans with higher coverage are
9:17 am
always a better is choice. that's not true. >> no. people with a lot of medical issues this is a good decision. but for younger people who don't visit the doctor, taking with the lower premium and out of pocket costs can be a financially better decision. >> so the rule of thumb, pay lower premiums when you're young, higher when you're older. that makes sense. >> exactly. for most people, right. >> all right. next one is at home. your homeowners, renters insurance. you assume your stuff is covered when something happens in your home or apartment. is that always the case? >> right. so we assume let's say your 3-year-old laptop gets stolen. think the insurance company will buy you a new laptop. they will give you the cash value for the 3-year-old laptop. if that's important to you, get an additional rider on your insurance for the full cost value. one thing to keep in mind, though, filing claims can drive up your premiums over time and
9:18 am
cause you to lose insurance. so don't rush to file the claim. >> a lot of people assume when it comes to storm damage when it comes to superstorm sandy, you think they're covered. that's not the case. you want to look for flood insurance. >> exactly. hail, hurricane, tornadoes, those things are covered. earthquakes and floods, if you're in an area at risk for that, look for additional insurance to make sure you're covered. >> next pet insurance. now, i thought it was a myth, and that it wasn't really necessary, but it is necessary. >> you don't really need it for just annual care. that should be part of your budget for your pet. but for those people who will do anything for their pet, you're much better off paying a little bit each month to make sure you have pet insurance rather than racking up a huge credit card bill at the end of the day if a big injury or illness happens. >> how much does it typically cost a year? >> you can get plans as little as $10 a month. and over the course of the life
9:19 am
of the family, between $2,000 to $6,000. >> let's talk about long-term insurance as well. people assume medicare or medicaid is going to cover the costs of aging. important to know that's not the case. >> medicare is just there for health insurance. so if you have a stroke or something that lands you in the hospital, medicare will pay for your recovery. for the rehab center after the fact. but just the regular aging where we can't take care of ourselves, that's where you need long-term care insurance. be sure to look for the qualifications in your state. >> very important advice there. lauren again, thanks so much. appreciate it. coming up next, i'm going to get you caught up on all the news you need this morning. and can you guess what's wrong with this pick which you are? it may be the reason you're perhaps not losing weight. we'll talk about w what if he breaks his arm? or what if he wants a fish? or a dog? or an iguana? what if that iguana breaks his arm? what if he wants to study abroad?

welcome back now. i'm meteorologist christina loren. we have some cloud cover out there, but not a lot. and as a result, our temperatures are going to end up much warmer. we have some wind increasing in your forecast for today as well. we're going to see some really strong winds, gusty at times. later on this evening at the immediate coast, temperature in san francisco today, 67 degrees. not too hot, even in the east bay at 86 degrees. we'll hit 82 degrees, meanwhile,
9:29 am
right here in the south bay. today at 11:00, i'll tell you about a chance for rain, very rare, but we do have one. here's mike and your drive. >> folks, we're shifting away from the morning commute towards the midday. the bay bridge, getting a lighter look at the maps as we travel westbound out of 24. it's eastbound that's now starting to slow past highway 14 to warren freeway. that's the typical pattern as we get later in the day. the rest of your bay moving much more smoothly. a slower drive across the san mateo bridge. and look at 101, 280, and 85, not so bad. 87 still slow into downtown. we'll get you back to the "today" show.
9:30 am
. welcome back to "today," tuesday morning, june 24th, 2014. i'm al with natalie. tamron and willie got the day off. question. when's your birthday? >> june. and august? >> august. now, there's a british research study out that says children born in october and november perform up to 15% better on physical fitness tests than their peers. which i -- i mean, you are in terrific shape. >> thank you. i wouldn't put me as a professional athlete. >> not a professional, but you're a good amateur athlete. you're like a gazelle when you run. >> i think there's a lot of people out there who would disprove this theory.
9:31 am
you've got great fall birthdays. brett favre, dennis eckersley, david ortiz, colin kaepernick. some december babies, you get lebron james, tiger woods, gabby douglas. then on the other hand, summer -- >> you've got venus williams. serena williams. venus has 27 grand slam titles. serena 18. then june birthdays. michael phelps, derek jeter, and phil mickelson. again, like any of these studies that come out of britain, they are worthless. >> we basically disproved that theory. worthless. >> those brits. come on. >> how about you give us a check of the weather? and it's always accurate. and at least 100% of the time. >> and it's american. so let's show you what we've
9:32 am
got. eastern colorado into northern texas. into the great lakes some showers. tomorrow we're going move that further into the northern plains. look for wet weather continuing into the pacific northwest. showers central gulf coast into the central plai hey, good tuesday morning. i'm meteorologist christina loren. kind of blown away at how rapidly your temperatures are warming up at this hour. we're at 72 degrees for example in santa rosa and concord. meanwhile, we're in the 70s as well out in livermore. it's going to be a warm day today, as that breeze builds, 77 for the peninsula, 82 in the south bay, 72 for the east shore. sunny and hot, meanwhile, out in the north bay. but the good news is, we have good to moderate air quality for the entire bay area. >> and that's your latest weather. okay. so if you're a healthy eater but you're finding the scale isn't
9:33 am
budging or you're low on energy, maybe we need to tweak your diet a bit. >> it is all about the right diet. here to show us what's wrong with this picture is editor for prevention magazine. let's get right to it. what are the most important things to get right when planning your meal? >> everything at the base is clean eating. what we want you to do is have food that is sound of nature and eat that. when we go beyond that, what we're talking about is nutrient balance. think about where the calories are coming from. >> let's start with breakfast. we've got a picture we're going to show you. >> see what's wrong with it. >> oatmeal and strawberries. >> we had actually a bunch of employees who publish prevention, we had them tweet in what they were eating in the morning. if you look at this, tell me what's wrong. >> i guess she could use more milk in there. i don't know.
9:34 am
>> we've got the green tea. there's nothing wrong here in terms of the food, but you're right on the nutrient balance. green tea gives you this burst of energy. it's got caffeine. oatmeal is the same thing with the fiber. and the fruit does the same thing. but we've got a lot of spiking. and the question is where's that protein? where's that healthy balance? we want your breakfast to last. here we actually added in some peanut butter for some protein and some healthy fat. and we added cinnamon. there is brown sugar on this one. >> but that was a good breakfast. for me, that's a home run. >> what happens an hour later, people are dropping off. and that's the problem there. >> that's natalie. she's on the ground. >> all right. next meal of the day, let's talk lunch. let's take a look at a picture
9:35 am
here. salads. lots of toppings. i can see what's wrong with this already. unfortunately the salad bar is a big trap for fat. there's bacon, the creamy dressing. >> right. and also what are the drinking there? that's a diet soda. you're exactly right. just too much in this plate. but interestingly, too much and not enough of. so when we were talking about breakfast, we talked about the carbs for the quick energy. here you have none of it. you're not even getting sugar in your soda. not that we want you to have. so let's see how we can make it over to give us a better nutrient balance. you've got to pick your fat. so i happen to love avocado. we did avocados here. protein. added beans to give you a bit of fiber. and we said if you're looking for -- some people really want the satisfaction. chocolate will give you that. a little bit. key tip here, if you're having
9:36 am
the fat on your salad, don't have the fat as your dressing. so we actually added salsa here which gets you more vegetables in. then a water with lemon. you could do an iced tea or something on that part. >> let's talk snack choices. that looks pretty healthy. hummus and the carrots and celery. let's see how we make this over. >> al, anything wrong here? >> it's a little too much hummus and you've got the bread. >> exactly. it's kind of difficult to tell there, but that's eating it from the tub. what we know about anything is when you eat it from the tub, it ends up way more. so pre-portion your hummus. instead of having the pita which is also a carbohydrate, add more vegetables. bulk up on the veggies. and the crunchy is great for you in the middle of the afternoon. >> let's get to dinner quickly
9:37 am
here. wow. that's a lot of carbs. >> and this is a vegetarian meal. so a lot of times my vegetarians are saying it's vegetarian, so i can eat it all. let's bring out and show you how to change it other. one of the things we have to be conscious of is too much car sh going on there. we got rid of the carbohydrates. we added tofu. it's actually a carbohydrate and a protein. if you have that sweet tooth, have some fruit for dinner. that's a better way to get your carbohydrate there than from the rice and all of the extra carbs. the other part, way too much sodium. that's what you're getting when you're out. here make it and i assembled this from frozen vegetables and my own tofu. >> i thought i was eating so healthy all along. >> little tips for a little bit better energy. you'll see the results happen. >> good stuff. thanks so much. coming up next, it's not too late to book that fourth of july

[ male announcer ] don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis you may bruise more easily and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care
9:40 am
for sudden signs of bleeding like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. those three important reasons are why i'm shooting for something better. eliquis.

9:49 am
my kid. upload it to facebook. there you go. is cute a problem? >> that's an interesting way of putting it. >> being too cute, maybe. >> this is a weakness of mine. i post pictures of my kid all the time on facebook. for awhile it's because i'm so proud of him or you want your family to know about it. eventually you learn there's no better way of getting likes and comments or retweets or faves than posting pictures of your kids. as soon as it becomes getting approval for yourself, that's not good. we spoke to an expert in child actors. we said it's actually sort of the same thing. the -- like a stage mom will rely on their kid for their own self-validation. you find a similar thing on social media. >> was it working for you? >> i have yet to really cure myself of this addiction. but i'm working on it. >> i know this has happened to natalie. she's watching an r-rated movie on her device -- like this. >> should she keep it strictly
9:50 am
pg because her seat mate might see it? >> we spoke to a flight attendant who keeps a blog of airline etiquette. watching an r-rated movie on a plane is not a big deal. someone would have to actively look over your shoulder to see it. the bigger problem is audio. that's something somebody can't prevent themselves from overhearing. keep the volume down. if there is a butt on the screen for 15 seconds, don't worry about it too much. >> but if it's porn. >> yes. >> then move. >> exactly. >> next, your bragging rights. what's a humble brag and why is it bad? for example, job promotion. is that necessarily a bad thing? >> i don't know if you're familiar with the humble brag, the theory is you're too self-conscious to openly brag. you say i'm so humbled and honored, i'm not worthy of it. and our advice is just don't
9:51 am
bother with the false humility. if you're going to brag, just own it. it's better to be narcissistic an narcissistic and deceitful. >> like taylor swift. that moment when your cat casually walked up then abruptly attacks your oscar de la renta gown. >> or the tradition and history of wimbledon is truly special. federer listed seven times by the way on that plaque. >> and again, a big problem for all of us. what about emoji? all these emoji going on? >> you know you love them. >> you may remember this used to be emoticons. and there was something about the idea of putting winky smiling faces. like you didn't care enough to write what you feel. but actually i think emoji and e
9:52 am
emoticon emoticons, useful. you don't have the visual cues to tell you how to interpret something in text. i could be being sarcastic and it doesn't come across as sarcastic unless you use an emoji. so these are some that are available. 250 more are about to come online in july. so you can be even more precise in your communication. >> more time cracking code to figure out what people are saying. >> right. >> you also say forget google glass for now. why? >> you may recall in the mid-80s when cell phones first came online. wall street traders or whatever would whip them out and being loudly gesticulating. right now that's kind of what google glass is like. it's not that many people have access to it. it's very expensive and hits this marker of class consciousness. and our rule of thumb is don't
9:53 am
use it unless you're at a place where the technology is about to replace are widely in use. if you're at a conference or convention where 75% of people are on their phones or laptops, okay. but if you're in a dive bar, no. >> thanks. we're back in a moment. this is "today" on nbc.

9:57 am
audrie's bill last week so it could be worked on. it would require a minimum two-year sentence for minors found guilty of sexually assaulting someone who is developmentally disabled or unconscious. the bill is named for audrie pott, a girl sexually assaulted by her own classmates while unconscious. she later took her own life. today, santa clara county supervisors could keep more pot shops from popping up. county leaders are worried pot shops will open up en masse after san jose passed strict new rules within city limits. the ordinances would give supervisors time to develop laws and regulate them. let's check weather with christina. good morning. >> good morning, scott. we have some gusty wind in the forecast for today. otherwise, a really comfortable day shaping up. temperatures work like this. we'll hit 86 for the east bay, 82 in the south bay, and 67 in san francisco today.
