>> welcome back. the time is 7:11. beautiful sunrise in progress right now. there is going to be a little bit of cloud cover hanging around today. still i think you would call it a nice one. another cold start and 43 downtown. at the top of the hour, the winds were calm. it looks like things will be a little different than yesterday, in that there will be a touch of cloud cover around. the temperatures will quind up being almost the same. remember we started out close to freezing and wound up close to 60's in the afternoon. that will be the case again today. 39 in parkton.
it is 35 degrees in rising sun. satellite imaginary and that high thin cloud imaginary. you will notice as you step out this morning, there is rain showing up out of ohio and into west virginia at the present time. some showers could hold together and maybe move through here this evening or overnight tonight. we will put a slight chance for rain in the picture over that time stretch. there is still snow going on up in minnesota and parts of wisconsin where they picked up over a foot of snow over the last 12 hours. this front here that is coming across ohio at the present time looks like it is zipping through maryland. a chance for showers, and it will cool things off. we have been in the 60's the last several days and i think we will wind up in the 50's to start the workweek. today one more nice one. high temperatures will sneak into the low 60's. a mixture of sunshine and clouds. sunset this evening at 4:53. jove night tonight partly cloudy skies. a slight chance for a few rain
showers as the front comes through. temperatures drop to 37 and 46 degrees. the front will move off the coast in the afternoon, but more importantly, there will be an area of low pressure developing on this front that back delu the gulf coast states. that will ride up through the mid-atlantic region and give us a chance for rain. it will be chilly over that stretch as well. so a definite change coming up as we head into the workweek. 59 tomorrow, a 20% chance for a shower. a pretty good chance for rain tuesday, wednesday, and thursday. the high temperatures will drop into the low 50's over that stretch. we should clear up as we head into the beginning of friday and saturday with high temperatures rebounding back into the mid to upper 50's. >> in medical alert, alarming new projections for beats beats. americans can expect diabetes cases to double in the next 25 years from 23 million to 44 million in the year 2034. that translates into a tripling
cost associated with diabetes and that's without preff lens in the increase in obesity. joining us, a representative from the diabetes management center. >> why the huge projection? >> i think it has a lot to do with lifestyle factors and people really just making choices that aren't the healthyest ones. both in what they eat and how they eat and also in activity levels, taking opportunities to be active. >> more and more children are overweight, too? >> absolutely. that's one of the highest rates that is on the rise right now is in children. i think in part because they are doing more on-screens or in front of screens, watching a lot of screens and doing less physical activity. >> for parents, when they do those yearly check-ups for their children is to get their blood shotgunar tested? >> automatically. having lab tests and screening
at your doctors or if you see free screenings in the community, take advantage of those. i think that helping to improve the rates would be a family effort for the most part, because what children see is often what they do. >> type 2 diabetes factors into these projections greatly. what is type 2 diabetes? >> type 2 diabetes is a cluster of different types of symptoms that makes a body less sensitive to its own insulin. so it occurs when overweight is present over a long period of time, and often symptoms don't show up until it is really, really advanced. it is important to get regular screenings and also to be pro active with eating healthy. if you can. we've heard that before, but it is critical and important to do that. >> insulin does what? >> it is a hormone our body makes on its own out of our
pancreas that helps the glucose in our bloodstream get into the cell. when it can't into the cell because there is not enough insulin or the tissues aren't using it correctly, it circulates throughout our blood stream at high levels. >> there are a lot of people out there that think they have it and if they don't take their medicine. it is so expensive. but don't let that be something that stops you, because there are programs to help people, right? >> absolutely. we have fantastic pharmacy assistance programs. because it is really a public health crisis, a lot of companies are stepping up to the plate to help people who are in need. i know at our center we have free support groups that we can help link people up to resources any time that they come in, whether it is during our meetings or just to stop by and say "hi" and ask for help. >> you want people to reach out and if they know anything about this condition, because they are
-- there are inexpensive services to help them pay. >> absolutely. it is not just city and zate, but private industry has i lot of programs available as well. >> thank you so much for coming in. >> well, lifestyle changes including what you can eat can play a big role in helping to either not get diabetes or if you already have it to keep it under control. we'll have more on that coming up. plus, many people recycle them. cans, water bottles. do you ever wonder where it all goes? the surprising answer ahead. >> then, the world has changed for gift cards. for gift cards. find out what they are.he ♪

this is a serious problem. i don't know how much people have changed their diets to accommodate. >> it is true. it is not only about what we are eating, but how much we are eating, going back to portion size. a lot of the recommendations for portion size are basics. three balanced meals a day, maybe a healthy snack here and there. fruits and vegetables, whole grains. lean dairy as well as lean protein choices. >> is the whole sugar/artificial sugar a myth? >> people with diabetes can actually have foods foods with real sugar. it is about portion control. a lot of times when people come in to talk to me about diabetes and eating habits and things like that, i start talking about carbohydrates. it is about total quash hydrates in the diet and not just the added sugars.

outside the kitchen, we can recycle laundry deto your knowledge yensent bottles. again, recyclers want this material. by remembering to recycle we are doing something good for the environment. the last thing i will touch on -- >> bags. >> the important thing to remember is that in and around the baltimore area bring your bags and your wraps back to the grocery store, make major grocery chains offering recycling bins near check-out, and major retailers like target, wall mart, and lowes take back this material. >> what does that material become? >> i want you to feel this t-shirt. >> this is not yesterday's polyester. >> it feels like cotton. >> it wicks moisture.

the expectation he will change a little bit. >> and he also pledged to slash the budget and bring the deficit down. alan greenspan will be one of your guests. what insight do you expect to hear from him. >> i think bell get a broader economic outlook from him and get a sense of where the jobs are and where the housing market is. he's been part of this slashed deficit. one of the things i expect him to say is an across-the-board program to cut the deficit is what is necessary, that you can't do it in a piecemale way. -- piecemeal way. the proponents of this debt proposal are hard, and do the republicans have the guts to stand up and do this. >> and can they get things done. is there a sense they can bridge
this divide? >> this is a sense among republicans they have to deliver. if they have been successful heretoforeit is because they have been united on opposition. the republicans want to reign in government. that's the mandate, if there is any, for republicans, to bring down government spending. the question is, where and how are you going to do it? >> david, thanks for your time. we appreciate your being here. >> sure. >> you can watch "meet the press" this morning on wbal-tv following 11 news at 9:00. >> the humane society joins us with a pet looking for a home. >> is a gift card on your shopping list? new rules to protect consumers. why the better business bureau sadse you need to read the fine
>> the time is coming up on 7:37. it is 33 degrees at the airport at this hour. a chilly start for us. like yesterday it should warm up quickly and we'll see a little cloud cover on that shot. high, thin clouds have moved in this morning. all and all, i expect a nice close to the weekend. 38 in catonsville. 35 in tawneytown. yesterday we were in this neighborhood as far as temperatures went and then it jumped. it will be a more gradual jump during the day today.
we had showers coming out of ohio in west virginia today. eventually this front will come through, probably tomorrow morning. if the front comes through in the morning, i think there is a 20% or 30% chance for a shower, but not a big deal. we'll get by with dry conditions during the day today. a mixture of sunshine and clouds. the high temperatures this afternoon. after the chilly start, we'll sneak into the low 60's. overnight, starting this evening, there is a slight chance for rain showers. those hold together coming out of the mountains, we could see a pass by this evening. temperatures drop back into the low 40's. during the day tomorrow, the front will move off the coast. an area of low pressure will very well off the tail end of this front. this area of low pressure will track off the coast and into the mid-atlantic region with a good chance for rain during the week on tuesday, wednesday, and thursday.
and the temperatures are going to drop off significantly. in the 60's again today, but 69 tomorrow. low to mid 50's. if we're lucky tuesday, wednesday, and thursday, with rain showers around, it won't be a steady rain, but good chance for all three of those days to see rain showers. it should clear up by the time we get to the beginning of the week on saturday. >> the national retail federation says gift cards will be the most requested gift in holiday season. before you buy a girt card, know the rules. andy barnett from the better business bureau is here to tell us what the rules are. >> good morning. >> so gift cards increasingly more popular. >> they are going to be one of the most requested items for this holiday season. we wanted to talk about on august 22nd, the regulations around gift cards changed, and mostly to our benefit. >> so let's talk about the new -- >> first thing we got to go, gift cards, they will not be
able to expire for five years. that's the good thing. remember, in some cases, if you get a gift card, particularly from a bank, that card might expire. not the balance. not the money, but the card itself, just like your credit card. just like your credit card has an expiration date. >> what happens if it expires? >> you have to get another one, and you won't be able to use that until you do. it's -- >> that's a pain. >> yeah. the other thing you want to remember is full disclosure. when you buy a dst gift card, they have to tell you every term and condition. is it replaceable if it is lost or stolen? they will give you all the information about that card, critical full closure. most importantly, they cannot charge you anything. if that gift card is inactive, the first year, but after the first year they can start charging you a monthly fee. one time a month, they get charged a fee. they will begin to chip away at that balance that's remaining on
that card to the tune of $2.50 or $3 a month every time you don't use it. my advice to you is use them. when you get them, read the fine print and use them. >> they are already charging some of them a fee off the top. >> you think it is $100 even and then the next thing you know, it is $105. >> when you buy them, that is oftentimes that fee. there are activation fees, all kinds of fees. so these new regulations are dined to protect us and let us know what we're getting into. >> other things we should keep in mind with gift cards? >> you have to be careful when you buy them off the rack make sure you save the receipt for activation. when they activate it, give that receipt so you can prove that you actually bought it and you paid for it. and the other thing to remember, knees changes in regulations that are designed to protect the consumer are not applicable for the cards that are the reloadable gift cards or
reloadable cards, i deps phone cards, things like that. so, you know, you have to be careful of which cards you get. not all are apliccable. >> read the fine print. >> before we go, the better business bureau has been slammed nationally for charging fees for ratings. >> right. >> the bottom line is, the better business bureau they focused on, and they really focused on getting out and buying a rating. buying a rating. you can't do that. for a business to be accredited by b.b.b. it is invitation only and you must have a b rating. so if a business has an f rating that is a direct response because they didn't answer a complaint made by a customer. they have a pattern of complaints. there is some kind of behavior directly related to that cub. -- to that consumer. you can't be acredited if you are an f-rated business.
so it is a reminder to businesses to answer your customer's disputes. take care of your customers. act responsibly. that helps with your rating. in in addition, give the better business bureau background information. let us know about your business. who owns your business. how long has your business been in business. that full disclosure will also assist in your ratings. they didn't tell that side of the store -- story. >> business do train you to be -- >> they absolutely do. we accredit only those that meet our standards. they sign an agreement to those standards, and not every business can meet those standards because of their own performance with their customers. >> thank you. if you have any questions about whether a biss belongs to you they can call you at www.bbb.org. >> the humane society up next
