8:04 am
with the omicron variant is highest for those who are up to date with their vaccination, meaning those who are boosted when they are eligible. >> reporter: but many of those eligible still haven't gotten the vaccine. the u.s. recording over 18 million new cases in the last month alone, more than a quarter of the nation's total number of confirmed covid-19 cases reported since the beginning of the pandemic. with covid-19 tests still in short supply, testing processing labs like this one in north carolina slammed trying to meet demands. but some places like san francisco are starting to plateau when it comes to cases. >> the light at the end of the tunnel is here. >> reporter: nationwide a 10% decrease in cases. the cdc acknowledging that drop while also issuing a stark warning. >> let me just say cases are coming down. we still are at extraordinarily high levels of disease. >> reporter: in wisconsin, hospitals overrun. >> we're finding we've had to put patients sitting on a cot in

8:06 am
if an invasion happens, that will be ground zero. russia has repeatedly denied it will attack ukraine but it is continuing to amass troops with more arriving daily. a senior ukrainian commander telling us there are now 127,000 russian soldiers near the borders. the u.s. and european countries trying to increase support for ukraine. germany saying it will send a field hospital. the question now is what russia will do next week when the u.s. sends these written responses to its demands. whit. >> patrick reevell there in ukraine, thank you. turning to new findings on the effects of cannabis use in the body. according to a new study that observed more than 40,000 people, the drug's impact may last longer than the high. this study found that verbal learning and memory were most affected during and after intoxication especially for chronic and heavy users and those who use at a younger age, the study offers an important link between cannabis and lasting effects.

8:40 am
starting with the peanut butter, what should we be looking for on the nutrition label, and how should we store what we buy to make sure it lasts? >> for some of us on that nutrition facts label we'll want to look at the added sugars, added salt and added fats. that's something that you really want to pay attention to. now, when we're thinking about storage, natural peanut butters and peanut butters without preservatives, those need to be stored in a cool, dry place, and they can last up to 30 days. if you put it into the refrigerator it will last even longer. >> what about the jelly part of the pb & j, you can get carried away with the sugar on that. how do we make nutritious choices on all of this? >> absolutely. an excellent question. so for some people there are going to be able to tolerate and found palatable natural fruit. you can puree it or chop it in place of jam or jelly. now, i want to remind you when
8:41 am
it says sugar-free or no added sugar, there may be some preservatives or stabilizers that have been put in to, you know, boost that mouth feel so that's when i say look for something that's 100% fruit and maybe it's just done with fruit and fruit juice and that's quite tasty. >> so, maya, let's turn to the nut aisle. nuts are not cheap. how do we pick the nuts that will give us the most bang for our buck? >> yeah, nuts are very expensive in many places. so here you'll notice that i have nuts that are in their shell. those tend to last longer, a little more work for you but last longer. also depends on how the nut is packaged and also its fat content. the higher the fat content of the nut, the more likely it is to spoil. so i always say you want to think about where you're storing your nuts. those two can go into the refrigerator. now, if you're thinking about ones that are allergy friendly i like to lean into sunflower seeds because they make a great spreadable butter, and for people who can't tolerate tree nuts, that's an excellent choice. when you're thinking about your
8:42 am
favorites, my favorite is cashews. they're incredible when you cook them and if you eat them raw. i love all nuts but cashews do double duty, so good in food and just eating. >> i'm right there with you. we have to keep cashews at our house to snack on and for dishes we use them for. thank you so much, maya, for joining us this morning. all right, now let's turn back to rob for another check of the weather. hey, rob. >> what is happening, guys? baby ella doing her thing on the zamboni. check this -- this is -- i've never seen anything like this. boise, idaho, we got this video of this cute kid doing her thing to help smooth the ice out there in boise. no ice here in this part at least of lake superior but getting there. the sea smoke sent in. southwestern side of the lake to indicate how cold it is coming over the relatively warm waters of the great lakes. nothing warm about the frozen tundra tonight, big games

parts. which vendors are couples willing to splurge on. >> thanks so much for having me today. i'm really excited to be here. a wedding does have so many moving pieces and vendors are such an important part of the puzzle and at zola we're seeing 2022 will be such a huge year and couples are willing to stretch a little bit so at number one, vendor splurge, photographers. you know, it makes sense, couples want to capture the moments and memories they're having together. and then at number two we have an open bar. i think that guests can really expect to have a super fun wedding season, get down with a little extra champagne, a few specialty cocktails. and at number three we have venue. venue sets the vibe and the tone for the entire wedding and at zola we have a new part where you can search for venues across the country and book whatever kind of venue they're looking for. >> i never had to think about any of this because i had 14 people at my wedding so i had the luxury of that but for those who are considering --
8:45 am
especially this year, because people are trying to get back to their wedding plans, some had to be canceled or delayed but let's talk about design. are couples opting for certain color schemes for their wedding decor? is that a thing? >> yeah, you know, i think specificity is the name of the game in 2022. weddings are going to be super personal and couples are planning with so much intent so 31% of couples actually did not just check a color box but they said i'm planning with a very specific color hue in mind so at number one we do have traditional wedding white. that's a little unexpected. two, we have -- yeah, number two we have green and, you know, it's not just plain old green, it's sage, eucalyptus, hunter green, olive green, very specific shades and then number three, something borrowed, something blue, you can expect to see shades of navy, turquoise, teal and a nice top of dusty blue my personal favorite. >> the other thing a lot of couples are talking about especially these days with covid
8:46 am
and the pandemic, the debate about the role technology should play in these festivities. what are you hearing? >> i think a debate over technology is so interesting considering so many couples are meeting and dating online and then 100% of couples are planning their weddings online with zola's mobile app. but in terms of should i have an unplugged wedding or not, it can be polarizing. 40% of couples are actually voting for no phones at weddings. i'm personally with these couples because i think we've all been so connected online, i'm on zoom right now, that it's so nice to disconnect on that day. but in terms of technology that's a real do we see hashtags so in our community hashtag help is the number one question and couples create their own hashtags and finally we see virtual weddings and see streaming of weddings considering not everybody will be able to make it. guest lists are still getting longer. >> okay, great tips and all the trends, emily, thank you so much. we appreciate it.
