8:10 am
at meineke i have options... like oil changes starting at $19.95. my money. my choice. my meineke. mega millions, isn't that mitt romney's secret service code name? what is the jackpot? $640 million? that's a lot. even the greek government was over herebying lottery tickets. give me a bunch of those tickets. >> very funny. well, a few lucky winners of the mega millions jackpot will be laughing all the way to the bank, you can count on that. here's a look at the winning numbers, 2, 4, 23, 38, 46, and the mega ball is 23.
8:11 am
the winning tickets were sold in maryland, illinois, and kansas. earlier i spoke with clyde anderson about what the lucky winners zhould with their new-found fortune. >> don't go out there and say it's me, it's me. don't rush out and do it, take your time, breathe for a moment you've got to have a plan. plans is essential to what i'm going to do. in order to have flan, you've got to have the right team. you need a good accountant, one to manage the funds a and attorney. then together you can put that plan in place. >> don't rush and get a team together. >> yes, yes. >> what do you advise them? do you advise that or -- >> yes, i do. you want to make money off of my money. you know, use your own money to make money off of it instead of having them control it and keep it somewhere. you can make so much money off
8:12 am
the interest. get the lump sum payment and go ahead and earn interest off it. i think it's $270 million. even if you got a municipal bond, you could make $10 million a year on interest. >> i think the lump sum is $470 million. >> make sure you give uncle sam his piece of it as well. but that's a huge amount of money that you can live off the interest. >> if you can live off the interest and you make all this money, why is it so many lottery winners end up bankrupt? >> you have to realize, when people are buying and all this frenzy, people are buying in hope. it's hope of having something different or a different life. as soon as they get that opportunity to have a different life, a lot of people have never experience order had that type of money. as soon as they get it, they go buy it. theres ee this needs or wants thing. they get counsel who's not reliable or people they can't trust. they have all these new people that come in hair thai mind and
8:13 am
they mismanage funds. they really squander a lot of it so it comes down to mismanagement of the money and at the end of the day, they end up without any money. >> yeah, i'm sure. what about buying a lottery ticket in general? i mean there's so much debt these days. there's student loans, just trying to fill your gas tank, credit card debt. do you -- i mean is buying a lottery ticket a good idea or a waste of money? i ask myself that all the time. >> it was like $176 million. you had a better chance of being struck by lightning. so when you look at it from that standpoint, there's probably smarter thing you can do with your money. if you've got high interest rates money and credit cards, that could be an issue. we have people that were spending hundreds and hundreds of dollarses out here, standing in line to buy lottery tickets where they could use the money to pay something else or take care of other responsibilities we have. >> we'll let you in on our show
8:14 am
pool. >> they're feeling bad because they didn't win. all right. so we asked some of our team member as what they would do if they had won the $640 million and here's what they had to say. one of our writers for the show sailed she would buy an island and then anonymousmy will send family, friends and charities for money. >> our copy editor says that she would buy a giant house in the mountains and a huge house at the beach and give lots of money to family and homeless clarities. and then, of course, buy her own island. our associate produszer said she would take a vacation to france and relax and then figure it out all. we can all dream. i wa to hear from you as well. you can tweet me @randikaye. you're looking live at the ncaapmoncaa

8:17 am
now, news-making headlines. a los angeles school district changed its policy on reporting case of sexual misconduct on parents. parents will now be notified within 72 hours when a teacher at their child's school is accused of sexual misconduct. many parents at the miramonte school said they weren't
8:18 am
notified for months about this, former miramonte teacher mark berndt is facing 23 counts of loo lewd acts on a child. they're speaking now, decades later, hoping to keep doug bow gar from every coaching again. they described cigarette burns. the physical abuse then led to sexual abuse. >> one time i recall so clearly we didn't end up at the fro fi store but ended up in his apartment, and that was the first time that he disrobed me and forced himself inside of me. >> bow gar has. responded to our request for comment. but in an interview he said that the women are lying. in henryville, indiana, new video showing a school bus driver saving group of kids. it's a little bit disturbing but
8:19 am
the children are all fine. take a look here. you're looking aet surveillance video from inside the school bus being lifted by this ef-4 tornado. nearly a dozen kidding were on that bus, but the bus driver angel perry got the kids to safety minutes before the bus was hit. in the video recording you can actually hear her taking charge. >> everybody stay together. go, go, go, go, go, go. >> she outran the tornado, quickly rushing the kids out of the bus and to safety. amazing. >> now back to the trayvon martin case. the naacp is holding a rally in sanford, florida. it's one of several events happening today. they expect to hold a rally in d.c. if the next hour and his football team will hold a candlelight vigil in his honor in miramar, florida, at 6:15 eastern time. last night our soledad o'brien held a special investigation regarding trayvon.
8:20 am
it included racial profiling and the start your ground law. the teen's final phone call to the girlfriend is key. >> and at 7:12 was our last call to him. the phone call lasted for four minutes. at 7:17 according to the police recor records, they got to the scene and trayvon was shot and killed on the ground, and that tells us a lot. it tells us that she heard some part of the conversation that happened between george zimmerman and trayvon martin. and what she heard was not him coming to identify himself as any neighborhood association carp or anything like that. he said what are you doing around here, as to if suggest he didn't have a right to be here. when you listen to the 911 tapes so we can glean what his
8:21 am
mentality is when he got out of the car. >> does it potentially compromise the case that the young woman who's an ear witness ands that phone records could be so critical to the place if she's not talked to the police but she's talked to her first. >> her parents don't want her involved in this but she has to by law talk and she fwoings to talk. it's hard but she's going to go ahead and do it. >> zimmerman's family and friends have come forward insisting he's not a racist. they say he was protecting his community which was dealing with a rash of burglaries. george howell is there. george, what's the scene like there so far? >> reporter: randi, i'm sure you can hear the helicopter overhead and the gospel musical in the background. you see a lot of people showing up for this rally that was set to begin at 11:00. just a few minutes ago, we heard from a press conference with the head of the naacp with reverend
8:22 am
al sharpton. they made two points very clear, really the focus of this rally. first they want to see george zimmermon arrest and go through due process. and secondly they also said the police chief who has temporarily step add i side he should resign all together or be fired. they were putting pressure on the city manager to take action on this. a lot of people expected today. thousands of people, we're told. thousands bussed in to be part of this rally, randi. >> i know you spoke with ben jell lis earlier this morning from ncaa knaacp. what is the mission? >> it's to put pressure on state leaders to see that this case goes through due process and he is arrested. again, zimmerman has not been charged with anything in this case, but a lot of people, at least in this rally, want to see
8:23 am
him arrested for the killing of trayvon martin. >> and are officials at all concerned that this rally could get out of hand? do they have extra security? >> that's one thing that stood out in this press conference. we heard the rev reverend al sharpton make the point they have been non-violent protests, no report of violence. and as you remember, there have been several marches and rallies here over the last several days, so that is their intent, and you also see a lot of police officers blocking off streets, providing protection for thousands of people that come to this town it seems every other day, randi. >> george howell, thank you very much, live for us in sanford, florida you. can watch the replay of the special townal "bee beyond trayvon" hosted by soledad o'brien at 2:00 p.m. today right here on cnn. a chemical link has been found in me of your basic household products, things from

8:26 am
all right. take a second and think about what you've been up to today. did you shower, shave, put on
8:27 am
some perfume, lotion, take the clothes you're wearing out of the dryer? if you've done anything of that, scientists from the silent spring institute say you've probably been exposed to bpa. it's a chemical linked to breast and prostate cancer and heart disease. earlier i spoke with the doctor about it. >> it's farmed in a lot of household things like you mention. it makes plastic sort of firm but flexible. >> i know it's been banned in other countries but it's perfectly legal to put it in the products here in the youth. >> the most common places are going to be the plastic fool containers, the lining of cans. it's in a lot of canned food, water bottles. but it is banned in other countries, but in the u.s. there's been a constant effort to decrease our exposure, so most baby bottles don't have it after 2009. sippy cups have had the bpa removes from it. but it is a pretty universal
8:28 am
chemical. >> yesterday they decided against a ban on food and drink containers. say it's been studies and continues to study the effects of bpa and will make any necessary changes base oddtown science but it says it's in hundreds, maybe thousands of the products here. how do we know? do we look for a label or how do we know it's in the product we might be using? i never thought it might be in kitty litter small one of the main polices that people are exposed to is going to be plastic food containers, maybe when you bring leftovers home from a restaurant. one way to look for it if you flip it over. the recycle triangle, anything that has a number 3 or 7 could have bpa in it. some things to try to do to avoid the exposure are going to be don't heat those containers. if you've ever microwaved a plastic container, it starts to collapse and buckles, it's telling you the chemical is denaturing. don't try to reuse water
8:29 am
bottles, things like that. but don't heat up cans in the can. dutch the stuff out. there are ways to limit our exposure, and most of the danger says it could be harmless in animal bus they're continuing to look at it in humans. right now in the small amounts that they seem to find we consume, it seems to be safe. >> what about the side effects in terms of children? are the younger kids more at risk or is it more at risk for them? >> that's exactly right. that's why they're worried about children and unborn babies. pregnant women and kids is where yu want to be careful. which is why a lot of manufacturers have removed it from sippy cups and baby bottles to avoid that because infants don't process things the way adults do. they're much more conservative. even there it's been a small amount found and the only danger seems to be in animal studies. >> are there side effects? would we know? >> it wouldn't be noticeable.
8:30 am
it's mike row scopic. there's no test you can do voluntarily to go find out. the smart thing is this could be a problem. just try to limit your exposure. >> all right. that is extent vice and great information. doctor redi. thank you. both mitt romney and rick santorum throwing support behind scott walker but could it hurt the gop candidates in the polls come tuesday? plus mitt romney already sounding like he's the nominee. a countdown to the wisconsin primary next. no matter where you go. no matter what you do. when you're living with moderate to severe crohn's disease, there are times it feels like your life...
