7:05 am
costello, who covers aviation for us you've covered a lot of accidents, but where will investigators start with this one? >> they have a lot of directions to go in, but they'll look at whether this plane suffered an engine failure with the remaining good engine pulling the plane into an uncontrollable roll also, what kind of fuel was loaded on this plane it uses jet engines to power the propellers, and it requires jet fuel they'll want to make sure the proper fuel was used and it wasn't contaminated fuel they'll look at the experience of the pilots. how much time did they have in that type of plane, and how qualified were they? did they follow emergency procedures, especially if they did lose an engine what was the maintenance record of the plane was it well maintained and how recently wases i serviced? and the loading of the plane eight passengers with bags could have meant a lot of weight they'll be looking at whether that played a role >> also, we know this wasn't a commercial plane, obviously. were there black boxes do they have black boxes on this one?
7:06 am
>> it should have had a cvr, a cockpit voice recorder, but probably not a flight data recorder they'll listen to the cvr to see whether the pilots discussed any problem they were having they'll be listening closely to the sound signatures of the engines. they'll probably be able to hear whether the propellers were running at the right rpm or maybe one of the engines was off. one of the engines had shut down, so the propellers were out of balance that should tell them a lot about what was happening. >> you'll continue to track it tom costello, thank you. another major story this morning. new fallout from president trump's meeting with kim jong-un at the dmz on sunday, setting off a media frenzy, as mr. trump became the first sitting u.s. president to cross into north korea. this morning, a new video from north korea celebrating that visit. we have it all covered, starting with nbc's chief white house correspondent hallie jackson good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. we are talking about this made

7:10 am
sort of underscores the risk here, right? how big of a risk was this move for president trump, and could it actually be dangerous, jeremy >> kristen, this is symbolism over substance i mean, north korea has nuclear fuel for about 50 nuclear bombs worth. they have an intercontinental ballistic missile. they test fired it two years ago, the week of july 4th. as time goes by, they're increasing their program if they're delivering us photo ops as opposed to dismantlement, i think it is potentially dangerous for the united states. >> jeremy, you were at the cia and the pentagon during the obama years. president trump asserted over the weekend that president obama had been begging kim jong-un for a meeting. is that true >> i never heard that, craig i was at the pentagon when kim jong-un came to power. i don't think that's accurate at all. in fact, in three summits, singapore, hanoi, and now the dmz, the president has put kim
7:11 am
jong-un on the world stage. he's delivered a major propaganda victory. if it's harmless, okay. it could be harmful if they don't deliver a result. >> another fact check here. the president's own intelligence community has said kim jong-un has no intention of giving up his nuclear weapons program. why will this third meeting be any different? could it make a difference, jeremy? >> i don't think it will, kristen, unless north korea gives us a full list of all their undisclosed sites. that's the key. if we don't get a plan for dismantlement, all of these photo ops, all of this pageantry doesn't actual make us safer. >> what would the incentive be for kim jong-un to do that? >> well, he'd ultimately want sanctions released. he wants his economy to improve, and he wants to be embraced by the world community. of course, on the heels of the g20, the global gathering of all of the leaders of the major industrialized nation, he's there with a big story out of the weekend. >> jeremy, the president's supporters will say, look, bottom line, it is better to talk, better to come to the table than to not try at all.
7:12 am
do they have a point there? >> churchill said, jaw, jaw, not war, war. diplomacy is always good. the north koreans are developing capabilities, and we're giving them the time to do so. >> jeremy bash, thank you. let's turn to a shakeup among the 2020 presidential candidates after last week's debates with kamala harris rising in the polls after her attacks on former vice president joe biden over race. nbc's andrea mitchell is following the campaigns. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, craig. kamala harris is indeed moving up in one post-debate poll, while joe biden, still a front runner, is facing more criticism for his comments on race, as that issue is front and center in the campaign today. including a re-tweet, since deleted, from donald trump jr. kamala harris is building on her breakout debate performance, campaigning sunday in san francisco's pride parade.
7:13 am
the california senator is on the rise, after taking on former vice president joe biden, over his past opposition to desegregate schools. following his controversial comments about working with two segregationist democratic senators in the 1970s. >> that conversation was about, frankly, one, me sharing a personal experience, and hopefully explaining then why i felt the way i did about the comments about segregationists and about the issue of bussing in america and the history of that. >> reporter: a poll shows biden still leading the democratic field with 33%. that's a five-point drop from the previous week. the same poll shows harris surging, now tied with elizabeth warren for third place at 12%. up six points since the debate. biden now facing even more criticism from his rivals after
7:14 am
these comments about black teenagers friday. >> we have to recognize, we have that recognize to kid wearing a hoodie may not be a gang banger. >> as a young black guy in america who was followed and surveilled, this is just another example of just conversations that are lessons that biden shouldn't have to learn. >> reporter: rivals are leaping to her defense after donald trump jr. tweeted and then deleted a tweet about her race. mayor pete buttigieg tweet, it is long past time to end the birther style attacks. >> we have a president who is a racist and, apparently, based on a statement yesterday, his son is following in his footsteps. >> a spokesman for trump junior says he was asking about harris' ethnicity and deleted the tweet when his intent was misconstrued. a trump campaign advisers and former spokeswoman was tweeting racial vibes at harris. nbc news reached out. no one had any comment. craig and kristen.

8:34 am
are hot. if they're hot, repeat the process until it's not. >> nice moves. for 75, smokey, you're moving good >> people might not realize this, but cars can be hazardous. >> that's right. the undercarriage of the car and exhaust pipe get really hot. if you park on tall, dry grass, you can start a fire this weekend, if you're going boating, camping, pulling something with a trailer, the chains are a problem you need to twist those chains, and make sure they're not dragging so they don't throw sparks and cause roadside wildfires. >> what kind of impact do you think our friend smokey has had over the past three quarters of a century? >> i'm glad you asked. we've been working hard on looking at the numbers since 1944, we've had a reduction in about 60% of wildfires. >> wow, incredible >> nice, smokey. >> the main problem is nine out of ten fires nationally are caused by humans it is still true, though we have a reduction of wildfires. >> important information gwen and smokey, thank you.

now to more of our now to more of our summer sleep survival guide
8:42 am
the season brings longer days, more activity, and a break from routine. add it all up, and it can really impact the quality of our sleep. here with some strategies to help us all get a good night's rest, sleep specialist dr. michael bruce. this is important here >> oh, yeah. >> here we are, beginning of summer, dog days of summer. >> absolutely. >> schedules change. >> right. >> no school >> right. >> longer days let's dig in here and look at some of the strategies let's start with school. no school, no schedule >> right what ends up happening is parents say, you know what you no longer have to wake up at the crack of dawn for school any longer let's let you sleep as long as you want a lot of teenagers definitely need to sleep a little bit more, but don't let them sleep until 11:00 every day. what's going to happen is their body is going to become so entrenched in the schedule it'll be heck to pay when school starts again keeping them on a very consistent schedule is also very good from a health perspective from their rhythms. >> you made teenagers very
8:43 am
angry. >> i have two at home. >> small kids, we go on vacation a couple times every year. >> i know what's coming. >> it's the travel jet lag. >> right. >> what can we do about that, if anything >> there's a lot of things we can do of course, summer is a great time to be going on vacations. sometimes, we go into different time zones our body doesn't realize that because we got in an airplane and flew 3,000 miles, our body clock is where we started. the direction of travel is very big, especially when dealing with children. east is least, and west is best. when you're going in a westward direction, you're asking your body to stay up later, and that is easier than if you are going eastward, where you're asking your body to go to bed earlier since you have to wake up at some crazy hour, you can probably go to bed at 8:00 most people can't. >> right. >> that's what happens when you travel east. other things to think about, when you're traveling from a jet lag perspective, is getting sunlight i ask people to arrive in the destination in the fairly early morning or afternoon
8:44 am
walk outside immediately and get the sunlight sunlight resets your circadian clock and stops the melatonin production in your head, making jet lag much easier. using light and a little caffeine not for the kids but definitely for the adults, a little caffeine while getting the bright light exposure can help wake you up. >> okay. very useful. let's talk about the heat and humidity that a lot of folks are dealing with throughout the summer. >> yes. >> what sleeping environment should we aim for? >> so cooler is always better. >> tell me wife that. >> i just did. >> yes. >> sweetie, i hope you're listening. >> she needs to know, for sure here's what happens, your core body temperature and sleep cycle are one. they follow each other when your core body temperature rises, about 10:30 it hits a peak and then it falls in order to fall, that's when melatonin is produced. in a hot room, your temperature can't fall the warmer it is, there's no melatonin being produced
8:45 am
that's why it is so hard to be able to fall asleep. cooler is better between 65 and 75 degrees, that's awesome trust me, i get it i used to live in scottsdale, arizona, and you couldn't cool your house 20 to 25 degrees off the daily high. >> summer, of course, means longer days, but you say that can pose some unique challenges. >> again, from a consistency standpoint, right? sometimes, people will stay up later. well into the summer evening if you keep your wake-up time consistent, you're going to be in much better shape the circadian rhythm, love the consistency. some patients, with a consistent sleep schedule, they don't need 7 1/2 or 8 hours they need less sleep because their body is more efficient. >> we can use the longer days to our advantage. >> absolutely. for some people, it can be a good time to catch up on sleep if you've been dragging it for a long time, summer, if you have a little more flexibility in your schedule at work, or for kids in camp, you might be able to catch a few extra zs, or go to bed earlier. >> i want to ask you something
8:46 am
else while i have you here pitch black. should the room be pitch black when trying to go to sleep >> this is a controversy the answer is any light will affect your ability to produce melatonin and sleep. pitch black is perfect however, many people have a problem waking up in a pitch black room falling asleep is great, but trying to wake up when you can't see your hand in front of your face, that's hard to do. what a lot of people do, i have them wear eye masks. it gives the darkness there, but a little light can peek in they can remove the mask in the morning when the alarm goes off. >> summer sleep survival guide very useful. >> thanks for having me. >> dr. bruce, thank you. kristen? >> great tips, craig coming up, we have summer freebies to share with you, from free fitness classes to food, and maybe a free trip to europe. you'll definitely want to stick around for that. elizabeth mayhue is here cheers first, this is "today" on nbc.
