8:00 am
where men drove up in two trucks, and drove off with the girls ages 12-15, and now we are learning new details of the kidnapping of over 300 schoolgirls three weeks ago by boko haram, the islamic extremist group. they were abducted by a midnight raid at their boarding school. one girl who escaped that night was told by them that we are soldiers and nobody is going to hurt you, and they started to shouting allahhu akhbar, and allah is great, and we knew. and now more from the white house press secretary jay car y
8:01 am
carney. >> and there is a request would the president consider sending troops? >> well, it is speculation, and i have not heard that. >> and joining me is a u.s.-based british-born nigerian writer and commentator and broadcaster, lola, and thank you for joining me. >> thank you for having me. >> and heartbreaking news that reuters is reporting, and we are working to get more confirmation, but they have now again attacked a village and taken eight girls, with all of the international pressure on the group right now to be more brazen to go in to take more girls is stunning. >> yeah, i mean, in some ways i am thinking that it might empower them that there is so much attention on them right now, and it seems that is the case. >> and also, we are hearing from the white house saying that the nigerian government has not requested assistance, and we are not sure what assistance the administration would provide, but that there is not a request at this point.
8:02 am
and also a development that is unsettling to so many. >> yeah, it is unsettling, because i mean that the nigerian president said that he had spoken to president obama a couple of times, and we don't know the exact nature of that conversation, but it took him three weeks to issue a general statement to the pub lek anyway, and that is going to tell you a little bit of where nigeria is in terms of moving this forward and it and it is a concern, and we can only hope that with all of this international attention now and with the world economic forum going to nigeria in the next few days, it is going to put pressure on the nigerian president to act. >> and in relation to the world forum happening at the nigerian capital, what are you anticipating to come out of that meeting? >> well, african is placed as a continue nent on the national s as economic power, and nigeria
8:03 am
is going to want to move it forward and there is a sense that people do want to invest in nigeria, and interested in the opportunities, but only if are there is economic and political stability, and this terrorist threat is a real areally big potential, and it is a spanner in the works of that, and there is going to be some pressure from all attending saying, listen, we need to get the house in order, otherwise the country's future is in jeopardy. >> and the timing is interesting, because the world's eyes are on nigeria, and to your point this pre-planned huge economic meeting happening, and now much of the attention of the meeting will be placed on the girls, which may speed up the process here. if there is an option to safely get them back to their families. thank you very much, lola. let me bring in jennifer who is from maryland university, and she helped to organize the rally in washington, d.c., and thank you for joining me, jennifer. obviously, the rallies are spreading through the weekend and we saw a tremendous turnout
8:04 am
from new york and washington, d.c. and coast to coast, and what is the next level, or does the drum beet continue on the social media? and in hopes that the pressure somehow does work? >> well, yeah we hope that the pressure does work, and also, for people to actually see it is not just about the social media activism, but taking the next step to go out to do more steps. it is not just protesting, but writing the senators to ask what america is doing for nigeria is important. >> and we have heard from the press secretary for president obama jay carney that the nigerian government has not made a request for assistance, and so it would appear logically that the administration even your congressmen nor senators can't do much until the nigerian government asks for that requests, is there a way to pressure the president of nigeria and his cabinet, a nd what is happening on that front? >> well, we need more masses to go out to pressure the nigerian
8:05 am
governments and older statesmen and tycoons, and they are all stakeholders and we have to have the nigerian youth and masses to push for the economy we want to see, and we have to bring the change that we want to see, and i feel like us more in america and abroad are doing more than the people back home in nigeria, and if we can all come together in a joint effort, we can have a not only drum beebeat, but acti. >> and to your point, the economy of nigeria has been strong, and so when laws were discussed there unfavorably seen in the united states, nigeria has not buckled, because it has a tremendous e kconomy of its o, and it does not demand aid from the united states and other parts of the country, and so with that said, what type of pressure is placed on businesses who are placed in the united states and do business as well
8:06 am
in nigeria. >> and the oil corporations, and you won't do business if this situation keeps going on, and other oil corporations, and other others are stakeholders and so if they plan to have more business in the country, your progress will not go through, so it is a joint effort of having the businesses push and call for this action that we are all trying to see, because even with the world economic forum going on right now, hopefully the people who are there, and the countries who are there who actually listened to the whole issue going on right now. i am hoping that the businesses will start to ask the same questions that we are. >> and we are looking at the live picture right now of the rally going on, and are you expecting daily rallies and for the rallies to spend to d different cities? >> yes, i am hoping that it is going to spread day by day in different cities there. is one in 4:00 p.m. in houston,
8:07 am
texas, and more around the cities and other countries as well, aed a not just the u.s. and canada, but other countries where there is a number of nigerian youths but like ukraine and dubai. >> thank you so much. >> absolutely. >> and we are also looking at the dire changes of climate change on the earth this morning. today, the obama administration released a most comprehensive report ever compiled on the effects of climate change across every region of the country. this sentence in that report perhaps says it all -- climate change once considered an issue for the distant future has moved fi firmly into the present. among the key findings the average temperature in the u.s. has increased from from 1.3 to 1.9. and also the hottest on record in 2012 in the continental u.s.
8:08 am
and temperatures are projected to rise two to three more deg e degrees in this country in the next decade. and there is will also an alarming report showing the intensity and the frequency and duration of the hurricanes that have been increasing since the '80s and more winter storms, around tornados and hail and downpours. joining me now is brenda who is a climate scientist, with the climate and energy programt the union of concerned scientists, and brenda, thank you so much for your time. >> thank you for having me. >> and the scientists who are behind the report have compiled the data, and say essentially, this is a game-changer, and the report which is a lengthy one, and one that people won't read from top to bottom, but somehow, it is going to have an impact, and seep into us here what is happen i happening, and do you believe it to be the case? >> i do. congress asked for the report. it is an assessment of the climate change impact in the
8:09 am
united states, and the president is delivering this report today. it essentially confirms what americans are seeing with their own eyes. the seas are rising, and the heaviest rains are becoming heavier. the heat waves are punishing, and droughts are more severe. >> and again, back to the report. the scientists say that this is less abstract to many americans, and i completely understand what you are saying that it was can commissioned by members of congress, but we know that we have members of congress who don't believe in climate change. >> naturally, the focus has been on the politicized debate in congress, and however, the coverage of people in the states, in the local communities who are already dealing with the climate change, that is where the focus needs to be, and in this report, it really presents clear evidence. it is climate change that is happening now, and the primary cause is burning a fossil fuels,
8:10 am
and that is really important. because that means that it is actionable science. >> and let me put up a map of observations, and the climate impact impacts according to the report. the northeast for example, coastal flooding and the sea levels will rise, and extreme precipitation, and storm surge and going to the south, and the midwest, extreme events such as heat waves and droughts, and the list is on and on here. what is needing to be the action? again, i mean, while this report is significant, but i think that for anyone who has been reasonably engaged and if you live anywhere in this country, and watch a waeather report at any time, you have witnessed and seen these events play out. you don't need a report to know that. what is the action though that jennifer, that we need at this poi point? >> we severely need more actions to reduce emissions of heat trapping gases that are causing this to happen in the first place. what we are seeing is the
8:11 am
administration is taking steps to reduce emissions, and to slow the pace of climate change that americans are contributing to. what we see is looking to as you mentioned, looking to those who are living in the southeast florida who are dealing with the high tides that are flooding the streets and making it dangerous to drive. and also, farmers and ranchers are confronting the drought which is more costly for us to put food on the plates. >> and let me play more of what the senior adviser said about "daily rundown" with chuck about what the president could do with the emissions without congress, and this is what he had to say. >> we are looking at the rules from the existing power plants to have health benefit s fs for public across the country, and that is coming forward, and a proposal coming forward in june, and we are doubling thement amount of renewable energy on public lands, and increasing the
8:12 am
efficiency of appliances both in the commercial sector and the home appliance sector through reaction of the department of energy. we have had the biggest expansion of renewable energy in really on record. >> so we saw the laundry list there, and back to reality, jennifer, the politics of climate change, and while the weather is changing around us, it seems that some are dug in with their belief that it does not exist or that these decisions, the president could make without congress would impact the businesses, and what makes you optimistic that you will see a forward potential game-changing situation as the scientists are pointing out? >> well, for the first time, we are seeing the serious momentum of the administration to reduce the administration from the power plant sector, and the forms of the transportation that emits the heat-trapping gases, and the power of the administration is quite strong, and we need leadership in
8:13 am
congress the make a dent in these emissions to slow the pace of climate change so that we can reduce the consequences that americans are facing. we need to protect our communities, and this report really provides clear information for those who are doing the best to protect their communities from the consequences of the climate change, and that is most exciting aspect of the day, and it is actionable science. >> thank you is much, and we appreciate your time, and thank you again. >> thank you. >> and right now a lobbying blitz is on the way from the white house. and also, our senior political editor mark murray will tell us why straight ahead. and we don't want people going on their own in a sketchy neighborhood or sketchy house or apartment to try to find a phone that really only worth a couple of hundred bucks. >> a warning from the police, when you use those apps like track my iphone if somebody has
8:14 am
taken it, and some of the confrontations are violent, and the latest of what is happening there. plus -- >> look at me. >> sure. >> look at me. >> sure. >> i'm the captain now. >> that is of course, the actor in the award winning film "captain phillips," but now he is using the star power to shed light on the native somalia and how he wants to improve the struggling situation of so many there live. and join me on the conversation of twitter, and you can find me and my team right at "newsnation." ups is a global company, but most of our employees
8:15 am
live in the same communities that we serve. people here know that our operations have an impact locally. we're using more natural gas vehicles than ever before. the trucks are reliable, that's good for business. but they also reduce emissions, and that's good for everyone. it makes me feel very good about the future of our company. ♪

8:17 am
welcome back. "consumer reports" says that thieves snatched more than 3
8:18 am
million phones and most police departments say they are too busy to track them down, so now more and more people are taking matters into their own hands and one woman in los angeles tracked her own phone down using the popular find my iphone app, and she went 30 miles away and after a short confrontation, she got the man to hand over the phone. >> you think that you made a good decision? >> i think that my dad would say differently. >> do you think that you are lucky? >> i do think i'm lucky, definitely. >> and the police say it is a disturbing trend, and people are getting hurt. and joining me is "the new york times" writer ian lovett wrote when hitting "find my iphone" takes you a thief's door. thank you, ian for coming to join usare reading this article, and after reading your article, you know that it does not always end with a good ending and it has been ugly out
8:19 am
there. >> well, when i started the story, i was shocked how many people have been doing this, and it is not all young men. i talk to women into their 40s and 50s and mothers whose children's phones were stolen and using the apps like track my iphone to a specific house, and went often by themselves, and knocked on the door and said, i think that you have my phone and i want it back. >> and in the case of sarah mcguire she got the phone back, but in the article, you talk about a construction worker in a fistfight and a man in new jersey who ended up in custody himself who used gps technology the find his iphone. >> and part of the problem is that, a lot of the people are successful doing this, but it can be dangerous. i spoke to a number of people who brought some kind of home cooked weapon with them, be it a hammer or baseball bat or cane and luckily none of those people who i spoke to used the weapons, but there are stories of physical violence that the police had to braeak up, and
8:20 am
every police department was saying that somebody could be hurt or potentially killed do g doing, this and you should really, as alluring as it is when you see the phone's location blinking on that app, you should call the police and let them handle it. >> but isn't that part of the problem, because the people have called the police and they are told, listen, your iphone is not a priority, and to you it may seem like the end of the world, but they cannot go to reclaim every missing phone? is. >> yeah, and some departments have been devoting more resources towards recover iing e stolen phone, because it is so rampant, but they have limited resourc resources, and they can't chase every phone, and in the case of miss mcguire, her phone was 30 minutes away, and it had not been taken in an armed robbery, but at some point in the previous night and she was not sure when. so they can't chase down every one, and these are personal devices to people, and it is not just an expensive item they own, but it has their photos, their friends' addresses and text
8:21 am
messages, and people are desperate to get them back sometimes, and that is part of the problem. >> and you are seeing more police departments get on board and understand, and listen, it wasn't an armed robbery and not something that is necessarily the people see as a great value, but when you look at the dollar figure, and $500 or $400, that is significant. >> yes, it is. it certainly is, and that is what motivates the people to go after them a lot of the time, and again, the departments are doing more in some cases to try to go after them, including using the same devices that the people use on their own and i spoke to a police officer in denver who for example said that when somebody calls him and the case of the stolen iphone, he opens up his own iphone and tries to track it down with the victim. >> all right. ian, thank you so much. this is all a part of the technology in the value and what people are willing to do to get it back. thank you so much, and a great report. >> thank you, tamron. right now sh, a mother wanto

around the corner, one writer says that the term "stay-at-home mom" should be a thing of the past. ester bloom says it is time to ditch the phrase in favor of a word that your mother may have used "homemaker" and the term stay-at-home mom has been weighted down and warped by 100 parenting philosophies and homemaker is a parent who is prioritizing the home rather than the house, and the family is a whole rather than merely the children. the writer of those words, the contributor of the billfoldester bloom joins us. take me into the home when you decided to put these words on paper, and what was going on in your life? >> well, i'm a mother of a 19-month-old baby girl, and she is wonderful, but i am a person who has worked full time and i'm a writer and my husband works full time, and i started to reading about mommy wars and it seemed that everybody was so incredibly unhappy, and stressed out and looking for some kind of answer, and some new way to be.
8:27 am
and i remember when i read about jennifer senior's book, all joy and no fun, and it seemed that the time was ripe for a new change, and a change of description, and a new title. >> and so stay-at-home mom is not a good title why? >> so, the history of the stay-at-home mom is interesting, because it came about in the early 1990s, and the women of the 1990s were coming into the workplace in new numbers and flooding in and women and men going to college in equal numbers for first time, and a time of exciting opportunity, and women were ambitious, and educate and the ones who chose to stay home, they wanted to differentiate themselves from the grandmothers and the mothers who raised them and they wanted a new word so they went with the stay-at-home mom, and 1992 which is the year of the woman, that is the first time in "the new york times" used the phrase stay-at-home mom which is to describe cheryl leach who had a
8:28 am
mas ters degree, and she chose to stay home, and before actually going back to work to co-found the tv phenomenon "barney and friends" and so she was an exceptional woman, but the term was coined around women like her, and women who chose to make parenting the domestic career of the career woman age. >> but it sounds like a powerful person, and a person who puts the family first and all good things, and why is homemaker a better word? >> absolute ly. it sounds like a wonderful term. >> right. >> and what it does unfortunately is to make parenting a profession, and over the last 20-some years. >> isn't it a job? >> well, it is more than a job, and unfortunately job in america has the kind of capitalist connotation which means that it is work, and it is not supposed to be fun. >> and some people love their work. >> and i'm lucky enough to come in to work everyday that i love 99% of the time. >> i am, too. >> and most of the stay at home
8:29 am
moms are not that way. >> tland not happy -- and they are not happy? >> no, most of them have not been choosing parenting as a profession, because they have not been able to earn enough to offset child care or can't find a job at all. >> and i was with someone who said they wanted to ban the word working mom, because we don't say working dad. >> absolutely. >> and does this speak to some of the self-inflicted pain that we put on ourselves as women, and i deal with it being a woman who does not have a child, and you deal with it being a working mom, but do we focus too much as women as putting each other in a category, and i guess continuing to have this what club are you in or team are you on, when the word does not matter. >> absolutely, and making it much more of a competition than it needs to be. yes, i would like to have everyone relax for a little bit and to the degree possible, put sel
8:30 am
self-fulfillment back on the table. >> and how do we do that, because i feel like there is a hierarchy that you v and moms at home, and versus the working moms and then those moms against people like me who have no children and assume that you put your career over a child, and the i whirlwind of things that are never true, and so how do we as women move forward? >> and the key is to stop thinking of parenthood as a job. it is not a job. and if people want to concentrate on the home front instead of the office front, fabulo fabulous, and it should be encouraged and women and men who choose to stay home with children or without, and who concentrate on the domestic sphere should be praised about it, and should not be confronted with a choice between working mom and state at home moms. >> thank you so much. interesting. and coming up a tweet from the nsa has been decode, and it is one thing that you should know. and the viral video of the day a vine clip showing a high school senior throwing a 50-yard

in washington today, the raging debate over the keystone pipeline is probing and splitting the parties of what is going to be a close vote on the authorization of the construction of that project. the legislation in motion today is going to be start the pipeli pipeline, and sponsored by mary landrieu and other democrats who are facing tough campaigns. and in fact, the oil industry top lobby group has stepped up the pressure on all of the democrats and launching a new ad campaign in five states in support of the controversial pipeline. >> bill clinton and george bush
8:35 am
both said build the keystone xl and warren buffett, too the, and 78% of americans. senators you dal and bennett -- udall and bennett do support it. >> and here to talk about it more is our senior political editor mark murray, and the blitz that is going on is a lob lobbying campaign, and we are learn learning more. >> yes, the senator controlling the group, katy wall, she is saying that she is not sure that there is going to be a vote on the keystone xl today, and there is a broader issue that the senate is debating and some procedural hiccups and the fighting on whether the keystone thing is going to be popped in, but tam ron, you mentioned the politics, and grow are mary landrieu or mark begich in
8:36 am
alaska and you can say, look, i disagree with the president of the united states, and i'm not a republican or democrat on all of the issues, but it is good politics for them, but i'm not shure if this comes to the vote and it passes whether it amounts to anything, because this is something that president obama could easily veto and the ball is going to be in the white house court on this. >> and what about the critics who say that the white house has a, mishandled this in the estimate, and this morning in the conservation on "morning joe" where joe and other c conservatives believe that the people who do not want to see this pipeline are big money d donors who vote on the single issues. >> well, it is a tricky situation for the white house, and we have been talking about since 2011 and 2012, because it was precisely an issue that divides the democrats. you have organized labor groups who want approval and the red states who wanted it approved and then liberals and environmentalists who don't, and it is never good to see when your party is divided an issue
8:37 am
like republicants and immigration. but it is not that hyped up, because there are environmental regulations that the obama administration is coming out with in june regarding the hazardous emissions in june that than is a bigger thing than this keystone debate that we are talking about right now. >> all right. mark murray, thank you. we will speak with you tomorrow. >> thank you, tam ron. a plane crashes into a colorado home, and what the pilot did next is one of the stories that we are following around the "newsnation" today. and we are going to be joined from the actor of "captain phillips" who is helping families transfer money to desperate family members in somalia at a time when the banks will not. how he is restoring the only lifeline for millions. he will join us live. enopausal . the problem isn't likely to go away... ...on its own. so it's time we do something about it. and there's help. premarin vaginal cream.

operation of the south korean ferry operation tops the stories of "newsnation" today. rescue officials said they lost communication with the diver five minutes after he went underwater to repair an area. they brought him up, and he was pronounced dead late ear at the hospital. and a pilot walking away with minor injuries after crashing his plane into a home yesterday afternoon. thankfully, nobody was home at this time, and the crash did ignite a small fire, and the plane was toting a small banner, and nsa investigators are look into what happened there. and this is viral. this is showing a texas high school football player who has a 50-yard pass to himself. he is throwing and running and catching and then catching and some people don't believe it is real, so we are trying to get him on the show, and because he is a texan, i am inclined the believe it is real. thank you. and most of you will instantly

8:43 am
conflict, and what do you want us to know? >> well, you know, somalia, it is a lot of the really bad stories and part of it is this remittance that we are trying to speak about today. and more than 2/3 of the kun coy have been on this money transferring companies that i debated on my life and it is very important for somalis. >> tell me about the struggle to get money to the family members or organizations that are trying to help the people of somalia, and what is the challenge there? >> you know, the organizations that help the humanitarians cannot cover all of the people that are in need. so, like a lot of the families and relatives and friends all over the world help parts of the people, you know, in somalia, and they send money back home, and that money, it is a big part of the economy of somalia, because there is no government,
8:44 am
and because of there is no banks, and that is why these western, like, transfer. money transfers, yes. >> and as you point out, 20 years omore of k-- 20 years or more of chaos and war and of the incidents of piracy and one of the reasons that i love captain fi phillips is that you understand what is happening in the country to make someone believe that it is the right choice, but when you look at the home and your country, and you see where it is in now, how difficult is it to look at all of the success that you have been able to attain here in the united states? >> well, it is really very difficult. it's not -- now i try to do what i can, and you know, help out the people, and like, doing what ever i can. a lot of the people are trying to do good job and they are
