what do you expect to see today? >> we're going to induce a rollover and we'll see how our technology will help a service member in a crash over a conventional three-point seat belt >> engineers rig the humvee with 30 cameras to capture every angle inside and outside the vehicle. inside the humvee, both test dummies are belted the passenger in the back is wearing a standard seat belt and the driver is wearing a four-point seat belt system that pulls the driver down to create space between their head and the ceiling. >> launching vehicle in three, two, one -- >> traveling at 25 miles per hour, the humvee hits a ramp designed to simulate what could happen in a real life rollover the humvee flips twice, almost jumping the barricade. and on the inside, chaos watch as this rider wearing just a standard seat belt is thrown from side to side. in slow motion, you can see the rider's head hit the ceiling with every roll.
7:44 am
but not the driver the air bag and the four-point seat belt protect the driver's head and neck. >> that was incredible to see in person we saw what happened on the outside. what happened on the inside? >> so everything worked just as planned. was pulled and then the entire seat was pulled to the floor, opening up? >> and that pro survivable space for the service member >> and that protects your head >> and that protects the head and neck from coming into contact with the roof. >> the army is exploring other safety solutions, including better driver training and the use of simulators to build driver experience. but for families who have lost service members, the changes are long overdue >> i never really realized it was a problem. but now that i'm, i guess you could say kind of living a nightmare, it is a problem and it is frustrating. >> so sad for that family. that demonstration was troubling just watching that so this is new to us, but it's not necessarily new to the military >> no, it's not, tom
7:45 am
this has been a known problem since at least 2014 when a milis fatal. some have been equipped with antilock military report found blunt force trauma in humvee crashes to be fatal. some have been equipped with antilock brakes. immi says installing that system will cost $4,000 to $5,000 per vehicle. a humveemaker says they do support the research to make their humvees safer. let's check in with mr. roker again. a busy day >> we're going to be looking at that severe system today this weekend, it's the strongest storm ever to have hit the west coast. the pressure dropped 46 millibars in 24 hours. that's almost double what it would normally take to make for a bomb cyclone we're going to see more of these because of climate change. warmer waters make these bomb cyclones more common
7:46 am
the warmer water and cold air masses as they move onshore. the heavy rain has ended on the west coast snow through the rockies but today, later today into the overnight period, that same system is going to cause severe whether for 12 million people. wind gusts, very large hail, 2 inches in diameter and several tornados possible. we move on into wednesday and look at this, 13 million people along the gulf coast up for severe weather from bay city all the way to mobile, alabama for strong wind gusts, a few tornados and isolated activity going on we're looking at heavy rain from the gulf coast all the way into the mid plains with anywhere from 1 to 3 inches of rain as this system moves to the east. that's what's going on around good morning. i am meteorologist, kari hall. we have one more chance of showers moving in from the north. it's mainly for the north bay, but still already spotty sprinkles out there as you get ready to head out the door, especially in san francisco near the coast. the rest of the forecast is

we are back, 8:10. >> this morning, the cleveland clinic announcing a major advance in research. anne thompson is here with more. >> reporter: the potential here is enormous. because of all the advances we've made in breast cancer treatment over the years, triple negative breast cancer remains the most challenging to treat, basically because chemotherapy is the mainstay of that treatment. now, a first step in the still long road to create a vaccine to prevent this deadly form of breast cancer. it is the most aggressive and lethal form of breast cancer triple negative. with none of the biological characteristics that typically respond to hormonal and targete the therapy. but this morning, new hope as the cleveland clinic tests an experimental vaccine >> how significant could this be >> well, if we could prevent 12%
8:12 am
to 15% of breast cancer and the most deadly type of breast cancer, it would be a major step >> reporter: the experimental vaccine is ten years in the making the study will involve 18 to 24 patients who have completed treatment for early stage triple negative breast cancer in the h risk for recurrence. each participant will receive past three years they are tumor free, but at high risk for recurrence. each participant will receive three vaccinations two weeks apart. the experimental vaccine is designed to target a lactation protein called alpha lactalbumin found in the majority of triple negative breast cancers. it should activate and expand the body's t-cells to attack the protein killing the cancer cells before they grow into tumors >> what we're trying to find out in this phase one trial is what dose we should use in feature studies. that dose will be determined on the basis of side effects and the immune response. >> reporter: who could benefit
8:13 am
the american cancer society says triple negative breast cancer accounts for 10% to 15% of all breast cancers it is more common in women under 40, african-american women and those with a brca 1 mutation >> i do want to see that we are aiming to help people. i don't want to raise false hopes, but we do have hope >> reporter: to prevent a deadly form of breast cancer. now, this is just the beginning of human trials. and a vaccine could take many years, perhaps even a decade to develop. and there is other research going on, as well, into other forms of breast cancer but all that work could represent some hope of the horizon for so many people >> hope is the key word here, anne thank you so much. we turn now to dr. maria white, director of breast radiation oncology at clinic medical center and a breast cancer survivor herself. dr. white, good morning to you >> good morning. thanks for having me with all the talk that this is
8:14 am
experimental and ten years away, it is hope >> it is hope. >> what are the implications of this >> this is very exciting i take care of these patients in the hospital this type of breast cancer is more deadly, more likely to happen in young women, people of color and people with a brca 1 mutation plus, it disproportionally affects all those people and it's their lives at stake. affe young families so we absolutely need new treatment options. it's the reality is it affects these young families so we absolutely need new treatment options it's going on be more promising for the future >> people may be looking at this and saying, great, breast cancer but it hits this targeted group tested have been through cancer and this is remission, right? >> that's right. >> this treatment follows the standard of care that is
8:15 am
and the people who are being tested have been through cancer and this is remission, right >> that's right. >> this treatment follows the standard of care that is currently in place chemo, surgery, radiation. and the goal is to risk the recurrence of these people who are at a high risk of having breast cancer come back. >> it's been a difficult time to get to this point for this particular trial which is now going to start in humans, but it why does it take could be ten years why does it take so long now we've seen a covid vaccine develop overnight, which was pretty rare itself >> absolutely. we've been spoiled by the covid vaccine. and we have a vaccine against cervical cancer. it's time for a vaccine for people with breast cancer, right? but it can take years for an early study like this to turn into a treatment that's available for the public that's why it's so important to do these clinical trials if you are someone out there who is dealing with cancer and making treatment decisions, ask your doctor if there's a
8:16 am
clinical trial that is right for you. >> can we say time frame for us, we have young daughters. do you think this something our young daughters will see in their lifetime >> i sure hope so. and i have a young daughter, too. five to ten years for maybe something like this to come along, but who knows, maybe we can accelerate the availability of these treatments when we really give more attention to clinical trials and aim higher to save more lives >> we were just saying the science is amazing you said it's dazzling >> it is dazzling. it's exciting to be a doctor right now. i've seen a lot of miracles and we need another one for women with triple negative breast cancer >> thank you for your perspective. >> thank you for having me 16 minutes past the weather. let's get a check of the weather with mr. roker >> as we take a look across the country, more wet weather for the pacific northwest, but nothing quite like what they saw earlier in the week and over the weekend. some snow in the rockies, but as we get back towards the east where all the action is right now, we will be watching more develop during the day temperaturewise, it will be chilly from the northern plains

welcome back chrissy teigen, already a best chrissy teigen, already a best selling author, is out with her most personal cookbook yet it's called cravings altogether. this is your very first television interview since the summer there was a big cyberbullying scandal thent that
8:47 am
stuff. >> of course, yeah >> you were accused of bullying some p here you are i'm figuring since you're here, let's just talk about that stuff. >> of course, yeah >> you were accused of bullying some people online on twitter. a lot of people took it personally they talked about how painful it was. one person said that you said something to her, as to this person saying, quote, i can't wait for you to die. and you apologized and you apologized profusely there were plenty of things where you said i was mortified, i was insecure, i was an attention seeking troll. i'm ashamed. i figure now we've had time to reflect, time to do the work did you ever get to the bottom of where did i do that stuff >> i feel like there was honestly so much -- having this periods of time to digest it all and to look back and to realize that honestly, there is always so much time to grow and to learn and to become more empathetic and to just -- i look at my kids and i look at what i want their values to be and how
8:48 am
i want them to treat people and to see that in myself, that i wasn't doing that, you know, was i think the hardest part for me was realizing that, my goodness, like this really had an effect on people. i think i used to kind of live in the internet phase. i would honestly -- you felt like you weren't talking to anybody. you threw things out there you didn't feel like anyone was going to read it and i kind of became the person that was that person that people thought the messages weren't going to. you just kind of throw things out there and you don't really think about the impact and the person on the other side i think about how much i've changed just in the past year and how much i've grown and learned. and then to think on of that in the term of a lifetime, how much room there is to always know more and be better >> i think we're all different than we were ten years ago i mean, if everyone dug back in everyone's hour and thought about these are the things i said and have done -- >> it's just -- >> you did talk about apologizing. you said i've apologized
8:49 am
publicly to one person but there are others i need to say i'm sorry for. i'm in the process of that have you been able to do that? and how was that received? >> yeah. definitely i wanted to make sure first of all that they were okay with me contacting them. so, of course, like some people, you know, maybe they didn't -- they don't want to be in contact with me or they just had gotten past it or moved past it themselves but, yeah, it was nice to be able to have everybody's contact information and be able to reach out on my end. if they accepted it, that's great, but they didn't have to, either you let people process things their own way. >> and i want to get to the cookbook and we're going to take a whole segment to cook right after this but you were talking about the cancel culture and that was when things got canceled, endorsements or tv gigs. is it back in place for you now? >> i mean, the thing that was important to me was realizing, you know, you don't really realize -- you know, i think you learn so much in the moments
8:50 am
where you do lose so much. you lose it all, your world is kind of turned upside down for me, it was a big moment of, wow, i need to find out how i can be better, how i can grow f from this, learn from this, and honestly, i think -- you know, you don't want to say there's that old cliche like i'm glad it happened, but truly, it made me a stronger person, a better person i realized that, you know, i -- like that's when i went sober, i went clean i'm 100 days sober today i'm so excited >> wow >> so i feel so good i feel very clearheaded. i feel very -- i don't know. i just -- i feel like i have done the work and i just hope these people can, you know, forgive and be able to, you know, welcome the fact that hopefully they've seen me be better >> well, a hundred days sober, that's a congratulations in order. >> thank you >> we're going to get to your cookbook right after this commercial, but you dedicate it to jack. >> yeah. it was quite a year, huh
8:51 am
yeah >> to lose a child it is a difficult moment >> and to not have really processed that, you know, to really -- to explain that to your children, what happened, and to have to explain it to yourself because i threw myself into the cookbook instead of processing it. so, yeah, it took a lot of therapy, a lot of, you know -- i needed to be clear that's why honestly going sober was so important i needed to be clearheaded i needed to be able to understand what i was taking in in therapy and absorb it instead of just hiding behind alcohol. >> it seems like there's a brighter new you sitting here before me. >> i really feel good, i do. >> i want to say congratulations on the cookbook. >> thank you >> and these are comfort food recipes. we're going to learn about them. we are going to take a quick commercial break, we are going to come back we're going to get to the bottom of whether john is a fan of a
