ons. these are my priorities, why i approve this message... and why i respectfully ask for your vote. massachusetts' newspapers rarely agree, but they do on question 2. they agree opponents have run a "campaign of misinformation" to spread "fear through white, affluent neighborhoods." they agree in the suburbs question 2 will have "no impact on their schools and their children." they agree it will provide vital "choices for urban parents" question 2 is "a kid's civil right." join leading newspapers and governor baker

doug: welcome back. to your health now. it doesn't matter how fit or strong you are. fighting through a muscle cramp can be a struggle. antoinette: you may think more water, bananas or electrolytes, but local researchers found that may not be the answer. emily riemer tell us they created their own solution. >> i always would drink a lot of water, always eating bananas. emily: training for her first marathon, tracy worried about cramps slowing her down. >> i particularly get it a lot in my feet. emily: diagnosed with multiple didn't need an extra challenge. she looked for a solution and found hot shot, a small spicy drink designed specifically to treat muscle cramps. >> you feel that sigh of relief like, oh, it's gone away. reporter: a harvard professor developed the recipe with his friend, nobel prize winner dr. rod mckinnon. >> hot pepper, radishes, wasabi, a whole list of things. emily: the spicy flavors target cramps at the source.
8:45 am
now we know it starts in the nerve, and the way to treat it is through the nervous system. emily: that discovery a total turnaround from what doctors learn in medical school and how trainers usually treat helpless athletes in agony on the field or sidelines. >> it's actually like a mini seizure of the neuron that controls the muscle. emily: those neurons have receptors and the scientists discovered how certain spices can overload those receptors, creating a numbing effect. ultimately damps down the hyperexcitability of the motor neurons. emily: that process can take only minutes. >> you feel the glow simultaneously with the cramp diminishing. it's a really cool sensation. emily: already placing orders, an olympic marathoner from marblehead and more than half of the teams in the nfl. >> it contains no caffeine, it contains no ephedrine, it contains absolutely nothing
8:46 am
emily: scientists hope they can use the same research to develop treatments targeting other cramps. on the short list, patients suffering from a.l.s. and m.s. so far tracy says hot shot is working for her. >> it kind of perks you up a little bit, just feeling that spiciness, and you're ready to jump out the door and hit the pavement. reporter: right now a six-pack sells online for $35. as for tracy, she completed the cape cod marathon on sunday. emily riemer, wcvb newscenter 5. antoinette: you fee you feel the cramp going away. ooh. we want to try it now if you want to send some our way. doug: pickle juice i heard was a good one, too. kelly ann: if you can get it down, though. antoinette: i know. anyhow, moving on -- kelly ann: we're talking about the weather today. it's a mixed bag. we can't gloss it over with one word. we have some of us getting in on showers. some of us completely dry. in worcester, we're getting reports of sun breaking through.
8:47 am
sunday. here's a look at what's going on. we have that rain that's mainly lingering on the cape. so outside of that, things are relatively dry. cape ann, you can see very light rain moving through gloucester. far eastern portions of cape cod and the islands getting in on that drizzle as well. that's going to continue to push south and east making its way into the atlantic. we're watching what's next. there's a lot of dry air behind that. we have a further up the line. that will keep us in that spot drizzle chance throughout the afternoon and evening. more so along the coast where this northerly wind will produce clouds and drizzle. so really along the coastline today, that's where that best rain chance will lie. temperatures right now mainly in the 40's. 44 in worcester. downtown boston at 46 degrees. although it's a milder start to the morning, we are going to see a very cool afternoon as our
8:48 am
budge very much from what we're seeing right now. we see highs today in the upper 40's to lower 50's with lawrence at a 50-degree high in the height of the afternoon. spot drizzle chances with that northerly wind blowing in around 5 to 15 miles per hour. now, as far as where it's best for today, really, it's out toward worcester county where we see sun breaking through already for this morning. that will be the case this afternoon. we'll see a mostly sunny sky. temperatures in the 40's with 4n height of the afternoon. as we progress into the days ahead, temperatures day in the lower end of the scale tomorrow. by tuesday, we're inching toward 60 while that sunshine in place looking to be a beautiful election day forecast. moving southward, highs near 50. that's the case as you move through much of the south shore and down toward the south coast as well. new bedford at 52-degree high. bridgewater at 50 degrees. moving onto the cape and islands, this is where shower chances will be best for today.
8:49 am
we'll see temperatures stay near 50 before jumping into the upper 50's by tuesday afternoon. gusts of 20 miles per hour possible. that's with that northerly wind in place. that will stay in place throughout the forecast today. we're watching the high pressure. that will bring some sunshine for your forecast tomorrow and into much of the kickoff of the workweek ahead. here's that seven-day forecast. clouds and drizzle for the eastern portions of our region today. staying near 50 to include a bit of a warm-up. no excuse to not head out and vote weatherwise. later in the week, clouds return, temperatures cool down. we're even talking about highs in the 40's by next saturday. doug: grab the sweaters. all right, kelly ann, thank you. training is underway for a future mission to mars. scientists will be hiking around a volcano in hawaii to practice collecting rock samples.
8:50 am
preserve the samples they'll pick up on the red planet. they say the ultimate mission is to see if there's life on the red plant and want to come up with a protocol of collection so they can it out before they get there. antoinette: no sense having all those rocks and not knowing what to do. frightening moments at a donald trump rally. doug: the candidate was rushed off the stage. the new information about what that set that incident off. we're following two breaking storie and hillary clinton: i'm hillary clinton and i approve this message. vo: in times of crisis america depends on steady leadership. donald trump: "knock the crap out of them, would you? seriously..."vo: clear thinking... donald trump: "i know more about isis than the generals do, believe me." vo: and calm judgment. donald trump: "and you can tell them to

wisdom of early voting, so far that question is being answered yes by an overwhelming record margin of 2-1 over 2012's presidential contest. elected officials and watchdog groups alike share the same complaint. america's voting process is broken. tuesdays are inconvenient and the number one difficulty and reason americans cite for not voting. tuesday elections had their origin during the agriculture-driven economy of the 1800's. weekends were eliminated for religious reasons, aon was a day of horse-and-buggy travel to the polls. it is beyond time to encourage some new thinking if not a complete overhaul of old standards. early voting allows more flexibility for those with inflexible work schedules, it also eliminates the need to stay in line for hours, sometimes during inclement weather, factors which also lower turnout. there is a risk early voting cuts short the vetting process and late developments in a campaign may impact our choice
8:57 am
on clinton and trump's views on the important issues or are we inundated to the very end on their personal failings? considering the record negatives dogging both candidates, any vote, early or on election day, is a considered risk for the majority of americans. record early voting is a strong indicator of acceptance for change. let's hope the discussion on increased reforms occurs before the first candidate announces for 2020. ? our neighborhood public schools. they are the bedrock of our communities. the place where 96% of our kids are educated. but even now, these local schools are losing more than 400 million dollars a year to privately-run charter schools. and if question 2 passes, it will only get worse. we can't let that happen.
8:58 am
all our kids to a quality education, vote no on question 2. massachusetts has many great public schools, and we took it for granted that our kids would go to great public schools. but some kids aren't so lucky. where they live, they don't go to a great school, and they have no choice. imagine if your kids were trapped in a failing school. public charter schools give parents a choice and are a pathway to success for these kids. if you like your school, question 2 won't affect you.
