6:11 am
all race 19 was the culmination of a remarkable comeback. the americans rallied twice from seven-point deficits to win the series 9-8. each one of those boats costs over $100 million to build. ridiculous. >> amazing. larry ellison pretty happy about the oracle wins. >> he spent a lot of dough. >> to get bragging rights and your name out on tv stations. it's exciting. weather wise, not much excitement thankfully. just gorgeous. need some rain. not probably going to get any until i think late next week, next weekend. if you have to water something, better do it. mother nature isn't going to help you out. seeing a little bit of light showing up with the breaks in the cloud cover. more sunshine as we head toward late this morning and midday. it's going to be another beautiful afternoon. high of 77. when you drive home, still 75 and sunny at 5:00. you have outdoor plans, want to take that walk, you might want to do it when you get home and
6:12 am
not wait too long because sunset is 6:58 p.m. a couple of showers down in southwestern virginia. a weak area of low pressure throwing some clouds our way but as far as the sprinkles, that's ground clutter here. we've seen them along interstate 64. it's weakening. no rain locally. it is warmer, though. with the cloud cover, we're about 5, 10 degrees up to 11 degrees warmer than yesterday morning in most locations. the actual readings now mostly in the 50s. we've got a couple of low 60s like annapolis and pax river naval air station. they're in the mid-40s with more breaks in the cloud cover. martinsburg, winchester down to 46 with 56 on the eastern shore. both southeastton and cambridge. outside on the michael & son weather camera, starting to see a couple of peeks of light through the breaks in the cloud cover here. we have temperature at reagan national of 60 degrees. cloudy skies officially. calm winds and the dew point not in the 40s anymore. they're in the 50s. still pretty nice but not as dry, not as crisp as it has
6:13 am
been. here's the storm system. you see it spinning in southwestern virginia. lots of rain, though, in the eastern areas of north and south carolina headed out toward the atlantic. behind it there's not much going on. so this guy was -- well, our best chance of rain i think this week is not going to do much for us. we do have high pressure through new york. that's not going to move much. we'll stay between the low and the high with a northeasterly to easterly wind the next few days. that will keep temperatures moderate, not too hot. at night not too cold. we'll be seeing some moisture trying to come in off the atlantic. we may wake up a few mornings with a little bit of cloud cover and burn that off. this is very much like we talked about earlier in the week san diego in a sense with the marine layer flirting with us. here's a look at the futurecast. we'll take you through midday. still some clouds around. into the afternoon more sunshine. if you're down in the northern neck or lower eastern shore, you may hang on to some of the clouds even through mid afternoon but it looks like we'll clear out tonight.
6:14 am
that will allow temperatures to get back in the 40s and 50s. northeasterly winds though coming off the atlantic so tomorrow not much change. sunshine, a couple of clouds here and there. temperatures moderate. highs in the 70s. there's going to be a storm system forming here. this could get a little strong even but it looks like it's going to head up toward nova scotia and new foundland and not be much of a problem for us at this point staying far enough off shore. here we are a saturday morning. there's the rain off shore. north army winds. so our weather pattern just not growing to be changing all that much. how about today? well, it's going to be in the mid- to upper 70s. tonight back in the upper 40s in the cool spots up toker 50s downtown. looking at -- spots up to upper 50s downtown. closer to 50 in the outer superbs tonight. 75 tomorrow, nice again with more upper 40s to 50s friday night. saturday looks fantastic. notice sunday, monday, tuesday and wednesday for that matter
6:15 am
with highs in the mid- to upper 70s. nighttime lows generally in the 50s. and monika is laughing but soon enough i'll have something to do. >> as many friends as you're making today is as many enemies as i'm making today. >> they love you. come on. >> this is why. northbound 95, this is the accident i've been telling but for over -- i'm going to say about 40 minutes near quantico. the two left lanes are blocked on the northbound side of 95. we don't laugh at what you have to deal w. it's very tough. northbound 95, the two left lanes again blocked here in the quantico area. you can see the single right lane getting through and, wow, the delays are terrible on the northbound side. in fact, let me show you on a map. all the red you have to deal with coming up toward the quantico and triangle area. northbound on 95, look at that. very, very tough. we've been trying to keep you posted an updated on the situation which means if you're just grabbing your keys, you want to choose your alternate
6:16 am
routes and know what you're going to have to deal with early, early this morning on 95 here in virginia. now, over on 270, pretty normal. all that yellow and orange forming out of frederick. it's going to be your heaviest stretch at 109 to 121. the lanes are open. incident free on 270. we'll take a live look one more time. here's the beltway in college park on the outer loop. that's the top side of your screen. you have delays closer to 95 as you head for georgia avenue in silver spring. back to you guys. >> thanks, monika. it is time for the question of the morning. according to a smart girls survey, which one of these activities did 52% of women say they'd prefer to do on a first date? is it a, go to a movie, b, go to dinner or c, watch a movie at home? >> our facebook friend toni said b, go out to dinner. you need to be able to talk and get to know a person. you can't do that in the movies and you don't want to take him home before you know him

6:21 am
change. a calculus teacher in bethesda is showing us why parents need to be on board too. it has to do with youtube and a math course made for tv. >> i love the quote that benjamin franklin came back today, only thing he would recognize is schools. because things haven't changed that much in a long, long time. >> reporter: but calculus teacher jim is flipping that on its head embracing change not just for the students. he's taking parents along for the ride, too instead of the traditional meet and greet on back-to-school night, he sent parents a video. >> welcome back to school night. in this video what i hope to do you is show you how the class is structured, how it's different, what the flip classroom is all about. >> i'm going to get a positive. >> reporter: in his classroom, he puts his lectures on youtube. the students watch those at home and they do their homework in class. >> first thing i want to do is to have an opportunity to go over what you watched last
6:22 am
night on the continuity of functions. >> reporter: so why not run back-to-school night the same way? >> i watched the video, had a couple of questions. sent him annual e-mail and then at back to school night parents came in with questions. >> reporter: that way they don't just hear about the teaching technique. parents experience it and understand why his students like it. >> i struggled paying attention in class but with this system, i can just go home, look at a video. if i don't understand something, i can rewind the video rather than getting lost in the lesson or something. >> i don't have any math homework because i've already done it so i can focus on other things. >> i know the kids a lot better and get to know their strengths and weaknesses. i can see what they're doing on their paper. if they have a question about a problem, it's not me working the problem. i can look at their work and follow it through. >> reporter: that way he can give parents specific information on their student
6:23 am
and they like that they like the results, too. >> my son at the start, he was -- it was utterly new to him. he thought it was a little quirky but he has grown to love t. it's wonderful. >> we've had one quiz, like one major quiz. it was 44 points and -- i've done really well on all of them because these videos, they're informative. they get to the point. they help you understand what the quizzes are going to be on. >> reporter: maybe benjamin franklin might not recognize schools after all. at least mr. kuhn's class anyway. >> the videos are just 12 minutes long. that's it. so the kid can stop and rewind it and try and get everything done and you ask direct questions of the teacher in class. if you have a cool school, would love to hear fru. send an e-mail or follow me on twitter to see where we're going next. to see where you're going next, we'll toss it over to monika. you're not going anywhere
6:24 am

beautiful on saturday, 75. comfortable nights. i don't know if you'll need the heater or ac at all for a while. by next week still looks fantastic. temperatures in the mid- to upper 70s for highs. nighttime lows in the 50s. jessica over to you. >> thank you, howard. there are tons of people out there trying to shed a couple of pounds. according to marcus and marcus, the weight loss industry raked in $104 billion in profits last year and it's expected to bring in $139 billion by 2017. the centers for disease control say there are about 69% of the population right now considered to be on overweight or obese. but if you're throwing your money away because you might be making some common mistakes, that might sound like you. joining us now to avoid those mistakes, we have dietician maurice back with some good ideas. what is the one thing we're doing to sabotage our weight loss efforts? >> first not eating enough
6:47 am
protein. i hear people say -- [ inaudible ] when you're dieting and cutting calories, you need twie the recommended level -- twice the recommended levels of protein. this is the minimum. 30 grams of protein at breakfast, lunch and dinner. this is what 30 grams looks like. a little more than a deck of cards of chicken, roast beef. this is a peanut butter and jelly. you need something on the side. >> let me move your hair off the microphone so we can hear you better. >> 16 ounces of milk. tofu a great vegetarian protein but you need beans on the side to get the 30 grams. >> we're adding the protein. what is another thing we're doing wrong? >> skipping breakfast. people try to cut their calories early in the day but they end up hungry and punching late at night. so -- munching late at night. breakfast gives you the fuel you need to stay full for a
6:48 am
longer period of time and it gives you the energy so you work out harder and burn more calories in the gym. two breakfasts, that ordinary protein breakfast, five eggs. >> should we worry about cholesterol or do lots of egg whites. >> you can do egg whites. another is greek yogurt. very high in protein. this is higher in protein and it has the bone building calcium vitamin d. a lot of greek yogurts have half the level of calcium we need. i topped it with some kind granola which gives you the whole grains you need, lower in fat, sugar and calories. and this is huge. people overestimate how much they burn and underestimate what they eat. measure your food. use cups. use a food scale. use a food app like >> measurements can be a huge difference when you talk about white loss.

thanks so much for coming back in this morning. and we will be right i'm terry mcauliffe, candidate for governor, and i sponsored this ad. for 30 years i've worked as an obgyn, my job is to protect the health of women. so i'm particularly offended by ken cuccinelli. cuccinelli wants to make all abortion illegal ... ... even in cases of rape and incest. ... even to protect a woman's health. i want a governor who's focused on schools and creating jobs, not someone who wants to do my job. who's ken cuccinelli to interfere in the lives of women across virginia?
