hot streak. amy schneider third all-time in "jeopardy!" history, winning 34 straight games. what's behind her history making run? good morning, america. great to be here with janai and george. also great to have you join us on this busy tuesday morning. >> very busy, maybe the only woman waking up in america with more luck than me this morning, amy is not here, the "jeopardy!" champ is on a roll. we'll have a lot more on that coming up. >> be careful what you wish for. we'll begin with top airline executives warning of a potential aviation catastrophe when at&t at&t at&t at&t at&t at 5g technology tomorrow. it could make some aircraft unstable. our transportation correspondent gio benitez is at newark airport with the latest. good morning, gio.
7:03 am
>> reporter: hey, george, good morning to you. unless changes are made, the ceos say we will see a slew of cancellations starting tomorrow and we're not just talking about passenger flights but also cargo flights including those carrying vaccines. this morning, the major airlines warning of a possible catastrophic aviation crisis beginning in less than 24 hours when at&t and verizon are set to launch new stronger 5g technology which would give faster wireless service. the concern, whether 5g signals could interfere with radio altimeters, a device pilots use telling them how far they are from the ground and helping them land in poor visibility. >> the frequencies being used in 5g are very close to the frequencies that are used in this radio altimeter. >> reporter: so experts worry the devices might fail because of potential confusion of the 5g signals. >> this is unsafe. let us be clear. this is unsafe. the manufacturers have said so.
7:04 am
our airlines are saying so. the faa is saying so and so are pilot groups. >> reporter: executives from american, delta, united and southwest urging officials to keep new, stronger 5g signals at least two miles away from u.s. airports saying in a letter, immediate intervention is needed to avoid significant operational disruption. to be blunt, the nation's commerce will grind to a halt. the ceos adding that certain larger planes can't be used and could potentially strand tens of thousands of americans overseas. one union saying its pilots are prepared to ground their planes if the faa doesn't act. >> we're not going to fly the airplane unless it's safe. we're going to yell from the rooftops that we need to stop this. take pause. we can get this done. >> reporter: other countries have successfully launched similar 5g signals but the faa says the 5g in america will be twice as powerful. the faa saying overnight it continues to work with the aviation industry and wireless companies to try to limit
7:05 am
5g-related flight delays and cancellations. meanwhile, at&t and verizon have not commented on this latest warning but they've said in the past this technology is safe with planes saying, quote, the question of whether 5g operations can safely co-exist with aviation has long been settled. michael, we will be following this one. >> i know we absolutely will, gio, thank you so much for that. now to the omicron battle. the covid variant showing signs of slowing down in at least 12 states and washington, d.c., but the rest of the nation is seeing at least a 10% increase. kaylee hartung joins us now from burbank, california, where cases are spiking. good morning, kaylee. >> reporter: hey, good morning, michael. right now, cases in los angeles county are up ten times from just a month ago. now health officials here warn that the unvaccinated are 22 times more likely to die from covid compared with those who are fully vaccinated.
7:06 am
so hospitals like this one are now prepared for the number of deaths here to continue to rise in the coming weeks. this morning in the hard-hit northeast where omicron first started to surge, the first hopeful signs of a slowdown. five states reporting a 10% decrease in new cases. new york state seeing a 12% drop in new cases the last six days while hospital admissions have gone down more than 5%. but health officials warn we're not out of the woods saying the latest covid surge has yet to peak across much of the country. 99% of counties in the u.s. are reporting high transmission. one of those counties now reeling, los angeles. over the past week reporting a ten-month high of an average of 40 covid deaths a day. >> not taking precautions is leading right now to sort of an untenable situation. lots of people out sick, lots of people in the hospital and now tragically more people dying. please don't think it's okay to do nothing and just take your chances at getting infected.
7:07 am
>> reporter: at a virtual event for the world economic forum, dr. anthony fauci says that we'll never be able to completely eliminate covid. >> but hopefully it will be at such a low level that it doesn't disrupt our normal social, economic and other interactions with each other. to me that's what the new normal is. >> reporter: and at that same event moderna's ceo says the pharmaceutical giant could have a combined covid-19 and flu booster shot ready as early as fall of next year. janai? >> so many will be looking ahead to that. kaylee, thank you so much. starting tomorrow, americans will be able to order those free at home covid tests president biden has promised us. you can place an order online at www.covidtests.gov. they're free. you won't have to pay shipping costs or provide any credit card information. there are limits. at this point you can order four per household and we're told they'll ship within 7 to 12 days of ordering. it's about a week to week and a
7:08 am
half. so let's say you go online and tomorrow place an order on wednesday, the 19th. they should be on their way to you by the end of the month. not everyone has internet at home and the administration says it's working on a call line where anyone without access to the website can place an order. george? >> janai, thanks. as officials trace the movements and motives of the hostage-taker who was killed. mireya villarreal is in colleyville, texas, with the latest. good morning, mireya. >> reporter: hey, good morning, george. abc sources tell us that the suspect in this case initially told police he was not associated with any domestic or foreign terrorist group, but was willing to die if his demands weren't met. the fbi and department of homeland security have issued a new warning to faith-based communities telling them to stay vigilant right
7:09 am
♪ overnight an unwanted pain uniting families of different faiths. >> while very few of us are doing okay right now, we'll get through this. >> reporter: the colleyville community targeted by the nearly 12-hour hostage situation gathering with an even greater strength to help heal. >> look for ways to share that love as we live, really strive to live that value. human decency is something that each of us are entitled to. >> reporter: this as we learn new details into what officials are calling a terrorism-related event at congregation beth israel's synagogue just outside fort worth, texas. this video captured by wfaa photographer josh stevens shows the moment three hostages escape from a side door to safety.
7:10 am
the group held at gunpoint allegedly by this man, malik faisal akram. at 10:45 saturday morning authorities received a 911 call reporting an intruder confronting rabbi charlie cytron-walker. akram had knocked on a synagogue window and shared tea with him before services and when he turned his back during prayer, the suspect pulled a gun threatening to kill all four hostages if his demands were not met. father michael higgins was watching a livestream of the service with members of the congregation. >> the families seemed to be very calm about it, but you can tell internally there was a tremendous amount of fear and anxiety. >> reporter: authorities monitoring the situation through the synagogue's video surveillance system. at 12:30 an fbi hostage negotiation team from quantico was called in. just after 5:00, the first hostage was released unharmed. about four hours later rabbi
7:11 am
charlie cytron-walker says they planned their escape after seeing the gunman become more erratic, throwing a chair at the suspect and fleeing out the side door. >> everything was just total silence, total silence. you couldn't -- you could hear a pin drop. >> reporter: the suspect was killed when authorities entered the house of worship. multiple law enforcement sources tell abc news the handgun recovered at the scene had been bought by the suspect from someone he met while staying at a local homeless shelter. authorities say akram who was not featured on any watch lists entered the country more than two weeks before traveling to texas listing a new york address on the visa forms. both family and friends continue to bring up when they talk about the suspect that he had mental health issues. yesterday we mentioned two teenagers were brought in in connection with this investigation. we've been able to confirm those two teenagers are actually the children of the suspect.
7:12 am
>> mireya, what more do we know about this threat to faith-based communities? >> reporter: it's worth repeating. the department of homeland security is reminding everyone to stay vigilant because of this volatile environment we're in. they're reminding faith-based groups we're in a heightened terror alert. if you're having big events, take a hard look at what your security systems are in place. that's just not talking about the video cameras. remind people of their training, what they're learning in these extreme group training sessions with law enforcement. if you see something out of the ordinary, say something. >> thank you very much. michael? >> thank you, george. to the showdown on capitol hill over voting rights. the senate getting ready to debate a measure that is a key part of the biden agenda but the bill's chances looking slim to none at this hour because two democrats are breaking ranks.
7:13 am
our congressional correspondent rachel scott is tracking the latest for us. good morning, rachel. >> reporter: michael, good morning. morning. yes, democrats are pressing forward with this vote but the odds are certainly stacked against them. in just a few hours the senate is expected to debate voting rights legislation for the first time this congress. this measure is sweeping. it would make election day a federal holiday, expand early voting and mail-in voting. democrats need the support of at least ten republicans to get it passed. right now they do not have a single one. they have scrambled for weeks to try and figure out another pathway forward suggesting they should change the senate rules in order to pass this without any republican support. but two moderates in their own party, senator joe manchin and senator kyrsten sinema, are not on board with that plan. so the bottom line, voting rights legislation is expected to fail for the fifth time and this will be a major setback for president biden and his administration. democrats say the stakes could not be higher. pointing to 19 states that have already passed laws making it harder for people to vote.
7:14 am
george? >> rachel, thanks very much. we go overseas to the crisis with russia over ukraine. russian forcing have been amassing near the border for weeks and the latest movements are sparking more concern about a possible invasion. ian pannell is on the scene in ukraine. good morning, ian. >> reporter: yeah, good morning, george. that's right. increasing u.s. diplomatic activity we're seeing here on the ground. we've just been meeting with a group of senior u.s. lawmakers here to show solidarity with the ukrainian government and it's just been announced secretary of state blinken is also heading this way. but there are grave concerns that the space for talking may be limited as russia moves yet more troops up into the border areas. this morning, tensions in ukraine amid concerns that russia could soon launch military action. a bipartisan delegation of u.s. senators sounding the alarm arriving in ukraine to meet with president zelensky and offering strong congressional support. >> we will give the people of
7:15 am
ukraine the arms, lethal arms they need to defend their lives and livelihoods. >> it's up to putin now to decide what he's going to do. >> reporter: in addition to the 100,000 troops moscow currently has along ukraine's border more troops and equipment arriving in belarus as part of planned war games. the white house and ukraine claiming in recent days that russia's already positioned operatives inside ukraine for a possible operation that could be used to justify an invasion. >> we all need to be on the lookout for what may be a russian-instigated attempt to try to start a hot war very soon. >> reporter: russia denying the allegation calling it complete disinformation. russian president vladimir putin continuing to demand guarantees including that ukraine won't join nato. the u.s. and its allies consistently rejecting that in a series of high-stakes diplomatic talks last week. but if he doesn't get his demands there are fears that putin will resort to force.
7:16 am
these russian war games are now taking place less than 200 miles north of here and they're part of this ongoing campaign of pressure and intimidation that we've been seeing but if putin really is planning a military offensive it also gives him far more firepower. in the words of one analyst we've been speaking to, the buildup we're seeing right now is unprecedented since the fall of the soviet union. this is serious, george. >> it certainly is. ian, thanks very much. janai? turning to a mom running into the record books. keira d'amato finished the houston marathon in just a mere 2:19:12. that is the fastest marathon time for an american woman crushing the previous record set 16 years ago and by a full 30 seconds. keira was a four-time all-american runner in college. she ran her first marathon back in 2017, just seven months after giving birth to her second child. the 37-year-old mother of two tweeting, after setting the american record in the marathon,

♪ level up ♪ time to level up your dietary goal with strategies and apps that encourage better eating habits. becky worley checked them out for us. hey, becky. >> reporter: good morning, michael. log it to lose it or right it when you bite it. the act of writing down what you eat has been shown to improve success hitting healthy eating goals and there are apps to make the task much easier but there's another key component to this strategy that can help you stay on track.

bridget shin was a lifelong yo-yo dieter. >> i had been on all the diets that were deprivation diets. it was focused on what i could not have. >> reporter: then she saw her daughter hillary try a different strategy. >> i just started logging my food and so that was really the foundation. >> reporter: using an app called lose it, mom joined in and this mother/daughter duo dropped around 100 pounds each. the pair profiled in "people" magazine's half their size series. >> what food logging is is just a tool to help you gain awareness and have accountability when you are going through, you know, your journey. so just being aware that, yes, eating nutritious healthy foods is important but also knowing, you know, how much portion-wise to have is also key. >> reporter: a 2019 study in the journal "obesity" showed those who logged their food were more likely to lose weight. they stressed the acu accuracy
8:23 am
the log in was not as important as the frequency of doing it. registered dietician and nutritionist maya feller says it's about mindfulness. >> it's actually being aware of eating. so many times when we sit down to have a meal or a drink we're doing it in tandem or in conjunction with other activity and don't even realize we've eaten or consumed whatever beverage it is. >> reporter: while feller has clients log in to the notes section, there are apps like noom, weight watchers, my fitness pal that offer logging and can make understanding and portion size easier. there are caveats. >> some of the apps inadvertently recommend restrictive food behaviors that can be a barrier to successful logging and still feel good about what you're consuming. >> reporter: she adds mindfulness about healthy choices applies to times when you veer off track. >> perfection should be thrown out the window. you have to find the pattern of
8:24 am
eating that works for you and one that supports your health and nutrition-related goals. >> it's important to be gentle with yourself when you're going through a journey like this and give yourself grace. you're undoing habits you may have developed a long time ago and that you've been developing your entire life. >> reporter: really true. if you want to hear more about their story about go to people.com. i want to mention this is not for people who have eating disorders. but for those that are it can help, we're not talking about a huge time burden here. the study i referenced showed people spent 23 minutes a day logging their food in the first month of trying this technique and by month six it took roughly 15 minutes and was still really effective, michael. >> take a little time away from social media and make sure you're getting healthy is the way i look at it. we hear about mindfulness and a big proponent of that is our friend dan harris who talks
8:25 am
about something called the anti-diet. we covered that on "gma" and it's where you incorporate indfulness into your healthy eating practices. so how does it come into play with food logging? >> reporter: well, it could definitely dove tail because mindfulness is a part of being present with what you're doing in the moment. and if i'm logging my food i'm not mindlessly eating until i feel sick but another tenet of what dan talks about is kindness and compassion for yourself. tracking your food is great but sometimes i eat six doughnuts and a whole bag of cookies. this has a philosophy, oh, well, tomorrow is a new day. it's agebout progress, not perfection. >> six doughnuts and a bag of cookies? >> i mean, sometimes. >> i gained weight listening to you say that i just want you to know. all right, becky, thank you as always. we appreciate you. coming up, a big surprise for a special teacher helping to bridge the tech divide and changing lives as she does it. we'll be right back.

8:41 am
>> yes, yes. so when we are talking about getting centered we talk about dropping into our true self. past the mind chatter and fear and it's an often dormant part of our personality because we're so identified with the fear. when we get centered we have more clarity, more focus, so we can create our best day possible. so, remember that fear can't really take a hold of you if you're fully present in this moment. so what we want to do is drop out of the chatter of our mind, get into your body. first thing is feel the bottoms of your feet. it sounds basic but sometimes we're not where we are in the moment. we're just in our heads all sfe t bottoms of your feet and get present where you are. and then put one hand on your heart, one on your belly an by tuning into your energy you can re-regulate your heartbeat, your breath. you want to make sure breath is coming into your belly and taking nice full breaths. if not, you can pay attention to it and do it. it will give you more energy as you go into the day.

8:43 am
the true self which will allow you to unleash your full power into the day. again, it will give you access to your creativity, to your stillness inside of you so make the best decisions and come from this place of power. so first need to understand the motivation so want to do it and secondly, i would just say consistency. it's a practice. we're not going to be amazing at anything the first time we do it but show up every day even if it's just five minutes in the morning. we tune our energy inward and then we go into our day and create our full potential. we're out of the chatter, distraction, the fear. we come from this deep centered place of power. >> that message is so powerful. kimberly, thanks for getting our day started with a glowing green smoothie.

so how do you make a cheesy sauce? >> so with the help of beautiful cashews, i'm a huge fan of cashews, you can make this as a savory dish and i can easily turn this into an actual cheesecake as well. >> what? well, you got our attention on that too. this looks great the way it is now for kids but you had a little something extra to make it more adult. what is that? >> so that is the help of truffles. so i push those flavors forward by using -- starting off using a truffle salt and then i finish the product by adding some really good high quality truffle oil when it's done and the trick to truffle oil is you don't want to put it on when you're baking because it's a very delicate oil and it loses its flavor quickly with heat so you're going to put that on to finish a product when it's completely finished. >> well, let's see the finished product. what you got?
8:52 am
>> okay. so this we have is the truffle. however, in my book i have several flavors. these are all fan favorites that started off with just truffle, but my clients and all the teammates liked this so much that i grew my recipes into a buffalo flavor and then a bacon one, as well. >> oh. charity, that is like charity to me to offer those two up. i'm all in. i got to say, this is absolutely delicious. so thank you for making this for us this morning. >> thank you so much. >> say hello to derrick for me and everybody out there -- >> he's around here somewhere. >> he's around here somewhere. he's lucky. he gets to eat the rest of the food. hey, derrick, good to see you, man. >> he said good to see you. >> you too.
