debate on the hill right now, it's like they're trying to stop a freight train with a piece of kleenex. >> the bills all need 60 votes to pass. that means for anything to change here in washington, savannah, it's going to have to be bipartisan. >> donald trump actually did weigh in on this, and it seems like he might be willing to take on the nra and side with this notion of no fly, no buy. >> i think that's right. this weekend he focused his remarks on how to keep the country safe, but he found himself at odds with the nra. trump argued that if more people at that orlando nightclub were armed with guns strapped to their waist and if they fired back at the shooter, the carnage would have been much less. but even the nra pushed back against that, insisting it does not believe people should be carrying guns in drinking establishments. trump has said he would meet with the nra suggesting he was on board with the law to try to keep guns out of the hands of people already banned from flying because they're suspended or they are known terrorists. savannah? >> a lot of moving pieces in politics today. peter, thank you.
speaking of guns, a connecticut judge will hear arguments on whether a lawsuit can continue against the semiautomatic rifle used in the sandy hook shooting. families of victims are suing remington arms which made the ar-15 style rifle used in that attack. the plaintiffs say the company knew the rifle was meant for the military and too dangerous to sell to civilians. remington's lawyers argue the lawsuit is barred by federal law that shields gun manufacturers from most lawsuits over criminal use of their products. a funeral will be held tomorrow for the two-year-old boy who was killed by an alligator at disney world. this as more changes with being made at the park with this tragedy. kerry is following that for us in new york. kerry, good morning. >> reporter: savannah, it's been almost a week since two-year-old lane graves was killed and attacked by an alligator here at disney world. this morning his parents and four-year-old sister are back in nebraska, preparing to lay him

never touched the ball. still, later in the round while he was still playing and trying to win the u.s. open, he was told that he may later be penalized for it. that created a firestorm on social media against the usga who told johnson that. despite the debate, johnson finished four strokes ahead of the field, so the one-stroke penalty in the end proved to be irrelevant. he won the $1.8 million prize. he is one of those never to win a major and he finally got it yesterday. >> was the controversy under a cloud that he had to be potentially distracted by the penalty? >> at a major on a sunday, you get that in your head that you have to be one stroke better. >> a fly around his head. >> never let 'em see you sweat, right? he won by four. let's get to the forecast. it's hot pretty much everywhere around the count, except for the northeast and the northwest where the temperatures

desperate race against time. antarctica's unrelenting winter, a dangerous rescue operation. one, perhaps two, workers sick and stranded at the south pole station. a medical evacuation attempted only twice since 1957 when the isolated station opened. and this time of year, the sun never rises, the conditions so cold jet fuel freezes. during the 2001 rescue, a sick physician, the plane's flaps froze, thankfully freed by an engineer. >> otherwise the plane would have been stuck there for the rest of the winter. >> reporter: to avoid medical evacuation, workers on the research stations sometimes take extreme measures to treat themselves. in 1989 after jeri nielsen diagnosed herself with breast cancer, she administered her own chemotherapy for almost six months after continuing to serve as the nation's doctor.

inappropriately. the girl's mother, who asked us to withhold her name, is furious. >> we're angry at him, we're angry at the airlines, we're angry that this happened to our child. >> reporter: the unaccompanied teen was flying home from her father's house in texas. according to an affidavit filed by an fbi agent who investigated the case, the girl said camp sat down and began to lean against her, first brushing his arm with hers and later allegedly placing his hand on her upper thigh. the affidavit goes on to say an attendant saw the girl, who was crying. he was then moved to the back of the plane, citing misbehavior conduct. they said in a statement, we are committed to our passengers' safety. we take these matters very seriously and have cooperated fully and immediately with law enforcement officials in their investigation of the suspect.
their policy is that unaccompanied minors are introduced to the staff and introduced to the appropriate person when they arrive. it costs $150 for unaccompanied minors to fly. >> when family members are paying these fees, i think unequivocally, they're going to have their children watched and protected. >> reporter: american airlines was sued last year when another underage girl flying alone reported being inappropriately touched by a man. the airline denied any wrongdoing. the u.s. department of transportation said while the airlines tried to make the child's trip safe and comfortable, unaccompanied minor services do not include constant supervision on the flight. >> if we can get this process fixed or improved or changed so this doesn't happen to somebody else's child, then we want to do it. >> your sympathies are with the family, obviously, and the
parents, but it's not round the clock supervision so interesting case there. let's get a check of the weather from dillon who is in for al. >> we have a chance of storms today. especially through the interior northeast extending back to the ohio river valley. it doesn't look like much, a couple cloud. des moines is about to see a little thunderstorm activity, but as we go into the afternoon from upstate new york stretching to kansas city, missouri, we have the threat of large hail and damaging wind gusts. no real tornado threat with these storms today, but still, the lightning is dangerous and you could get brief heavy downpours. these start at 4:00 or so this afternoon. on tuesday you see it shift to the south as the cold front shift. we're still looking at damaging wind gusts stretching to the atlantic. it's all about the heat. temperatures well above average across most of the country and we'll still be looking at temperatures well above 115 degrees in the desert southwest. that's a look at weather a

concerns that regard the process. it's false to claim that the university requires students to take leaves without regard to their you anemic circumstances. >> none of that is true. there was no compassion. there was no fairness. my experience is it's actually the opposite. >> after 13 months of pleading, jasmine finally got the news this month that she'll be able to go back to the university of chicago. she's overjoyed, but says that lost year is a price students like her shouldn't have to pay. >> throwing away students like they did me is not the answer to helping someone. >> one study shows 40% of college students dealing with mental health issues never seek help. we spoke with expert who is said this is something that could make that problem worse. >> a complicated situation. >> there are genuine good intents. the question is are they overreacting sometimes. >> you hate to think a student wouldn't seek help because of

before. it was pristine and amazing, and the rest was basically in a giant swimming pool. >> it was an amazingly grueling thing to watch. i can't imagine having to actually do it yourself. is this something you fear in your own life, sharks, or are you kind of -- >> no, i actually had an amazing experience. i went diving with great white sharks and a conservationist. being in the water amongst them, it suddenly takes away that fear because you see them in movies and they're villainized, but when you see them in their habitat and you realize they're not actually hunting you, they're in their land. >> nancy is your character. she's brave, she's a medical student, so we know she's resource ful. >> yes. >> she kind of gets stuck literally on a rock. you can see the beach, but she can't get there because there is a shark between you. >> that's what's so frightening, hence the name "the shallows," because of global warming, sharks are pushed closer to shore. she's attacked, and you think of a shark attack being in the deep
ocean, but it's almost scarier when shore is right there, and it's so close. but it comes in handy that she's a medical student, definitely. >> i was impressed with the way she figured out how to survive. i figure i would be the kind of person that would sit on the rock and cry. >> that's the thing, she's not the most resource ful person to start, but it just shows the human's ability to survive when you're faced with life or death. >> this is a little different for a type of project for you, and i heard your hubby was kind of your inspiration because he had done a rather grueling and difficult shoot as well. >> he did a film called "buried" where he's in a coffin the entire time. i think that would be harder to do because you have to carry a movie in a box. at least i had all these beautiful settings and sharks that helped me. i hope you like it. >> you have a little girl. i have a little girl that i think they're about three months
apart. is she doing anything fun and exciting these days? >> she's always doing something fun and exciting. she's the most fun human being i've ever been around in my life. >> you come from a big family. you said you want to have a big family. is that still the plan? >> oh, gosh, yeah. i'm one of five kids, my husband is one of four, so we are officially breeders. you can go on our website and we will give you some of our children. >> the more the merrier. blake lively.

spectacular fashion for more than half a century. >> is it fair to say that your first inspiration comes from the instrument or some sound you hear somewhere and not the story you want to tell to the sound? you match the story to the sound? >> absolutely. i don't have a story or a point when i begin a song. >> has it always been that way for you? >> for a long time. at least since graceland. >> simon can't quite explain how the story comes to him from the sound, it just does, he says. and it has been since the early days of simon & garfunkel. the pair that first started singing together as kids in queens, new york and made hits that have spanned generations. ♪ like a bridge over troubled water. >> is it still satisfying to you to stand on a stage and sing a song you've been singing for 50 years or whatever it is, "mrs. robinson" or "the boxer" or "me
and julio," one of the classics, and see someone in the audience connecting? >> yeah, it can be. >> simon recorded four grammy hits, sold over 100 million albums worldwide. >> i'm listening all the time but that's sort of a habit or something i was born with. >> reporter: his latest release, "strange to her stranr to stran latest blend. it includes modern dance music, believe it or not, all mixed with simon's acoustics. >> rhethe reviews for this albu have been incredible. i know you say you don't listen to reviews, but does the reception to it mean something to you? >> i'm pleased, of course. i'm interested to know what people think, but in general, reviews have a certain amount of misinformation, whether they're positive or negative, that you
really don't need. >> so this is your laboratory. >> well, in a sense. >> stranger to stranger was recorded mainly here in his studio, filled with an eclectic array of instruments from around the world. >> they usually play them with spoons, you know. >> i love these. who was the artist that people would be most surprised that you listen to as you go through your music? >> oh, there are a lot. most of them go back to when i was a kid. "mystery train" by elvis presley. i could listen to it every day. fats domino, hank williams. >> reporter: at 74, simon is loyal to the music of his youth. but he's always looking forward. he continues to experiment, to write and to sing.
and then he leaves the rest to us. >> i do think that the completion of the song belongs to the listener. the song is either i don't like that or i like it. and i like it because, and then they have their reason why they like it. so they complete the songs. >> a lot of people wondering if simon & garfunkel will ever reunite again. simon says he loves playing the hits but a reunion is out of the question. simon is now picking up new sounds and you hear it on the new album. what a treat to be inside the studio with this mad genius. it was amazing. >>. coming up next, joy bower puts a healthy spin on a chinese food
food? unfortunately, one of the favorites, general tsao's chicken, has a lot of sodium. try this at home. marinate the chicken. mix egg white, reduced salt soy sauce, mix and add to chicken. marinate for at least 30 minutes. make sauce. bring pineapple juice to a boil. reduce heat, simmer until thickened for about 7 minutes. cool. once cooled mix in soy sauce, rice and wine vinegar, sesame seed oil, cornstarch. whisk together. spray skill let with non-stick cooking spray. cook chicken for about 7 minutes.

documentaries, was also involved in a movie called "rush" about formula 1 racing. he saw a documentary i did about jay-zee's music festival and he invited me into this process, and i had the opportunity to meet and interview, you know, ringo, paul, worked closely with the families. it's been great to get to know them. we focused on the touring years, so about '62-ish to '66 which is their final big tour, but it's such a dramatic and dynamic, exciting period. >> you remember the british invasion. what did you think at that time? >> i was so excited to get my beatle wave, and i see my wave looks a lot like george's. i tried to capture this period and make it as revealing and intimate about the band. through it all, there was a kind of brotherhood, a relationship. i didn't quite expect the power of that. i find that kind of emotional.
while all this was going on, their lives were changing, our lives were changing. they were creating and working on the road, and yet their artistry kept evolving in ways that's truly profound. >> is there a beatle you most identify with? >> i think paul mccartney and his sort of showmanship, his love of the audience and wanting to connect and tell a story is something that i probably relate to best, but they're all geniuses. their music speaks to all generations. it still does. it's remarkable. >> my kids love their music as much as i do. >> it's because of the genius of the writing and the execution, so as a storyteller, always looking for something that might surprise audiences. it's been really a pleasure. >> you've got "inferno" coming out, the latest adaptation of the dan brown book. it's been a while. >> it has been a while. and we don't look at this as a series we have to service. we look at them as individual stories written by dan brown.
they're great cinematic opportunities. when the script comes around, and we really believe the movie can be strong, then we go. it's a great acting opportunity for tom hanks. he knows what he's -- >> this goes way back, back to your "splash" days when you directed him. you must have great stories about tom. >> he's a pleasure, he has a great sense of humor, and it never really stops until you roll cameras, and then he locks in with such focus and intelligence. of course, when the lead actor or actress in a film carries that sort of creative ambition and that work ethic, it's a pleasure for the director. >> ron howard again and the beatles' "eight days a week, the touring years" on september 16. coming up next, we know he's good at hunting and fishing, but let's see how luke bryan does let's see how luke bryan does when he g technology is useful. let's see how luke bryan does when he g i just bought a book. and while i was telling you about the book,
