>> a new fema memo obtained by abc news shows that according to the white house task force more than a quarter of the states have a ppe supply that will run out in under 30 days. now nearly two dozen states are putting their re-opening plans on hold or reversing them altogether. the most dramatic rollback in california, robin. >> that's right, whit. the mayor of l.a. is saying they're now on the verge of a red threat level. matt gutman starts us off there in los angeles. he has the latest for us. good morning, matt. >> reporter: hey, good morning, robin. basically what we're seeing is the governor of the state of california throwing the state in reverse, going back about six or seven weeks in terms of re-opening. you mentioned l.a. the superintendents of the l.a. school district and the san diego school districts canceling school for the fall in person. that means 850,000 students will be learning remotely. now, that l.a. school superintendent said he did not want his schools to become a giant petri dish.
this morning, california closing back down. >> effective today requiring all counties to close their indoor activities. restaurants, wineries, tasting rooms, movie theaters, family entertainment centers, zoos, museums, card rooms and the shuttering of all bars. this is in every county in the state of california. >> reporter: with deaths from covid rising and current hospitalizations now reaching record numbers, governor gavin newsom also announcing that 29 counties, accounting for 80% of california's population, will also be required to close fitness centers, places of worship, noncritical offices, salons and indoor shopping malls. >> this virus is not going away any time soon. >> reporter: the l.a. school district, the second biggest in the country, announcing that schools will not return to in-person learning this august. >> we have never had as many people infected or infectious and we've never had as many people in the hospital as there are tonight.
>> reporter: president trump criticizing that decision just hours later. >> schools should be opened. kids want to go to school. you're losing a lot of lives by keeping things closed. >> reporter: around the country some parents and teachers torn about whether to open schools this fall. two arizona teachers who shared a classroom this summer with kimberly bird, a teacher who died from covid, urging arizona lawmakers to reconsider re-opening schools. >> opening up is not feasible and it's not safe for the people in our community. >> we don't want to open schools right now and have to learn from the mistakes that we opened too soon. this is human life we're talking about. >> reporter: dr. anthony fauci warning this once in a century pandemic is nowhere near over. >> it's happened, you know, your worst nightmare, the perfect storm. this is a really serious problem. it is truly historic. we haven't even begun to see the
end of it yet. >> reporter: florida has more new cases of coronavirus daily than most countries in the world. >> miami is now the epicenter of the pandemic. what we were seeing in wuhan six months ago, five months ago, now we are there. >> reporter: one frustrated floridian heckling governor ron desantis during his press conference monday. >> you are an embarrassment. we're getting record-breaking cases every day and you are doing nothing. >> reporter: but while experts say a vaccine is a ways off, dr. fauci believes we could see more treatments for covid in the near future. >> sometime in the fall, i think we could conceivably have a couple more good anti-virals and anti-inflammatories. >> reporter: alreayd doctors discovering new ways of treatment for the seriously ill helping to lower the death rate in places like california. >> if you roll back the clock and look at where we were at in march or even early april on the way that we managed these patients in the hospital, we are
managing them a little differently. >> reporter: and while local leaders in miami are declaring essentially the covid capital of the world right now, governor desantis still resistant to shutting down parts of the state and he is also resistant to issuing a statewide mask wearing law defying public health officials. whit? >> all right, matt gutman, for us, thank you. new york meantime, taking tough measures to avoid a resurgence of the virus. governor andrew cuomo putting a new order into effect this morning requiring air travelers from hot-spot states to provide their contact information or face a heavy fine. gio benitez is at laguardia airport with more on that. gio, good morning. >> reporter: hey, whit, good morning. yeah, we are talking about thousands of dollars in fines. now, those travelers were already expected to self-quarantine but now starting today enforcement teams are going to be meeting planes at the gate at new york area airports and they're going to ask for proof that people have filled out the traveler form from the state's department of health.
that's going to give the state background information about the traveler and how to reach them. now just recently delta said three passengers on a flight from atlanta to albany tested positive for the virus. we don't know where or when they were infected. but it's just one example of how this virus can get around through travel. by the way, we should tell you that you could fill out that form now on your phone through the state's website. if you don't fill that out, you're looking at a $2,000 fine. if you break self-quarantine, that's another $2,000. so we are talking a lot of money. the state wants you to take this very seriously. >> all right. gio, thank you so much. connecticut and new jersey teaming up with new york for that quarantine order affecting 19 states. and joining us now is the governor of new jersey, phil murphy. governor murphy, thanks for being with us. we heard gio outline andrew cuomo's new order. is new jersey considering a similar order to put in place for travelers coming in from those hot spots? >> good to be with you. we'll do it our own way, but we're deadly serious about this. this is a travel advisory
demanding 14-day self-quarantining, testing for many hot spot states. right now there are 19 states in the country that meet that criteria. we knew when we opened our state up, we would take on more risk of transmission of the virus but there's an added element from folks coming in from out of state from hot spots and we'll take that very seriously. >> speaking to that, new jersey numbers looking pretty good, but how concerned are you about those numbers changing or it being affected by these other states seeing surges? >> very concerned. i mean, we've lived through hell and lost over 13,000 confirmed fatalities to covid-19 in our state, over 15,000 if you include probable deaths. we don't want to have to go through that again so we're very concerned. again, if we could control everything within our four walls that would be one thing but we are the united states of america and we have to look with very -- with great concern on the surges elsewhere.
>> within the state of new jersey, you and i both know you have very beautiful beaches, very popular beaches, and we've seen the images coming out of the jersey shore, people not social distancing or wearing masks and you've expressed concern. how are you addressing this? >> you know, we've worked with the shore counties and shore municipalities and it's worked really well. we've laid out the broad parameters and they've executed it had, so it depends on the town. we all know the virus is a lot less lethal outside than inside but we can't let our hair down completely so we work with the local authorities and we do have the jersey shores, an american jewel and a lot of folks there not traveling elsewhere so the demand is higher than probably ever before and we got to keep on top of it. >> governor murphy, you know los angeles, san diego, both deciding not to re-open schools, to just do them virtually in the fall. where are you in new jersey on the opening, re-opening of schools? >> yeah, we still hope to be
back to school but we've got to do it responsibly. we've got to do it right. our department of education put out parameters about three weeks ago. we're then asking our districts to come up with their back to school plan because no two districts are the same. but we're watching that very closely. the biggest concern is the passing of the virus from an asymptomatic healthy young person to an older educator, administrator, someone with underlying health issues and that's the thing we got to watch the most. >> governor murphy, you mentioned in your briefing yesterday you had demonstrators outside of your home over the weekend chanting, "burn your mask." what do you say to people who are frustrated with the policies in place in your state? >> listen, i mean, everyone has a right to protest but we have to make the decisions based on science, the data, on facts, social distancing, wearing face coverings, washing your hands with soap and water, staying home if you don't feel well.
that's all we've got. we don't have the therapeutic yet or that vaccine yet. so i would say to folks with all due respect i don't like wearing a mask either but it's the smart thing to do right now. >> new jersey governor, phil murphy, thank you for your time. we appreciate it today. >> thanks for having me. >> whit? to the latest on president trump taking on the nation's top health officials including dr. anthony fauci and the cdc. now some former cdc directors are firing back. our senior white house correspondent cecilia vega has more. cecilia, good morning. >> reporter: whit, good morning to you. this is unheard of. four former cdc directors sounding the alarm and while they say it is not too late to give the cdc a proper role in this pandemic, they say the clock is ticking. this morning, four former cdc directors who served in both republican and democratic administrations taking the extraordinary step of publicly blasting the president for what they say has been a, quote, tragic indictment of science. they didn't mention president trump by name but their message was clear.
the doctors saying sound science is being challenged with partisan pot shots, sowing confusion and mistrust at a time when the american people need leadership, expertise and clarity. the consequence they say, willful disregard for public health guidelines is unsurprisingly leading to a sharp rise in infections and deaths. it comes after president trump retweeted former game show host turned conservative commentator chuck woolery accusing the cdc doctors and others of lying to the public about the coronavirus in order to keep the president from winning re-election. and after the administration sidelined dr. anthony fauci, he hasn't briefed president trump in more than two months and administration officials made the remarkable move of sending reporters information criticizing the nation's top infectious disease expert as if he was a political rival rather than a member of the president's team. and president trump also publicly accusing fauci of making a lot of mistakes, but
now -- >> i have a very good relationship with dr. fauci. i have had for a long time, right from the beginning. i find him to be a very nice person. >> reporter: but from dr. fauci himself a steady drumbeat delivering a dire warning. >> we haven't even begun to see the end of it yet. >> reporter: take a look at this. it's a facebook post by a high ranking west wing staffer, the assistant to the president, the deputy chief of staff communication calls fauci dr. faucet. the cartoon depicts him as a faucet delivering bad news as the economy goes down the drain. robin, this as the press secretary just yesterday said there is no behind the scenes campaign to treat fauci as a political rival. >> all right, cecilia, thank you very much. well, as global cases of coronavirus pass 13 million, the world health organization is issuing a new warning saying too many countries are heading in the wrong direction. this as some u.s. military bases in japan face outbreaks and hong kong tightens restrictions as another wave of the virus hits
there. our senior foreign correspondent ian pannell has the latest. good morning, ian. >> reporter: yeah, good morning, robin. that's right. more than 100 cases reported amongst u.s. servicemen stationed on okinawa. so several american bases are on lockdown with almost no one allowed off. okinawa had seen just 148 cases since the pandemic began. the local governor unhappy calling this outbreak extremely regrettable, saying he has strong doubts that the u.s. military has been taking adequate prevention measures. meanwhile, hong kong as you say which has had relatively few cases now reporting more than 200 new cases in the last week. that is the most since last march. the government jumping into action putting back into place strict social distancing measures and, remember, the fanfare over the re-opening of hong kong disneyland only just re-opened last month, now temporarily that will close again from tonight.
amy? >> all right, ian pannell, thank you. well now to that big decision from washington's nfl team finally agreeing to drop its controversial name and logo after decades of pressure. rachel scott joins us from fedex field in maryland with all the reaction this morning. good morning, rachel. >> reporter: hey, amy. good morning. yes, and fans are on the edge of their seats waiting to learn what the new name will be. some suggestions already floating around out there -- the red tails, the red wolves, the warriors but still no official word yet from the franchise. never say never. the nfl owner who famously said he would never, in all caps, change his team's name this morning is searching for a new name that will inspire sponsors, fans and community for the next 100 years. the news met with both relief -- >> it's still my team no matter what name they have. >> reporter: -- and resistance. >> i spent over $700 in less than probably a month ago redoing all this and the feeling i'm having right now is -- it's a sad day.
>> reporter: owner dan snyder finally caving in after some of the team's biggest sponsors, fedex, nike and pepsi, demanded a change. >> when you're talking about nike taking merchandise of your team off its shelves, that's a disaster that's coming that you cannot avoid as an owner and you cannot have as a franchise. >> reporter: washington hall of famer and former all pro cornerback darryl green signaling he's more than ready to make room for a new jersey. >> i'm ready to throw them away. give me the new helmet. we can win for a society, for our people, for our nation. >> reporter: and while the name is still up in the air, two things that we do appear to know, sources tell espn that the franchise does plan to lose all native american imagery but wants to keep the team's colors. amy? >> we'll have to wait and see. rachel, thank you so much. we are following a lot of other headlines. ghislaine maxwell facing a judge today, the new details about her arrest.
the device authorities say they found wrapped in tin foil. and what "glee" star naya rivera's son is now revealing, but first to ginger for a check of the weather. ginger, good morning. >> good morning, whit. more than a thousand homes evacuated just west of evergreen, colorado because of that have wildfire. no containment yet. erratic winds today. back to utah where more fires will be burning. san antonio, texas, del rio both under the heat dome had their hottest july temperatures on record, 107 and 112 respectively. roswell, new mexico hit their all-time july record, three days in a row of 111. still very hot and those heat advisories go from florida to kansas city. it's all going to spread east as we go into the weekend. let's get the tuesday trivia sponsored by the ups store.

evade detection from law enforcement trying to trace her phone. prosecutors are asking a federal judge to keep maxwell, the former girlfriend and alleged co-conspirator of convicted sex offender jeffrey epstein, behind bars saying in court documents she played an essential role in sexual exploitation of minors that caused deep and lasting harm to victims. maxwell vigorously denies the charges and intends to fight them. maxwell is also being sued by three women who allege she and epstein worked together to abuse them including annie farmer whose lawsuit alleges she was 16 when she met epstein and maxwell through her older sister maria. >> they were master manipulators. i think that it's a particular type of sickness that they displayed in taking advantage of, you know, the love you have for a sibling. >> reporter: epstein killed himself while in federal custody. maxwell has repeated renounced any knowledge of sexual abuse
even claiming in court files that she had no contact with epstein for more than a decade. but this morning abc news finding in court documents that epstein and maxwell exchanged seven emails in a month's time regarding a civil suit just four years ago. >> so it remains to be seen how much information maxwell has and how much she's willing to divulge at this stage of her case. >> reporter: while the british socialite claims they were not in contact, she says epstein did promise to always support her financially. her lawyers writing in a letter regarding receiving money from his estate, mr. epstein's oral promise is evidenced by the fact that among other things he covered her legal fees and settlement costs when they were incurred. and prosecutors saying this is still very much an active investigation, noting more witnesses have come forward since maxwell's arrest. amy? >> all right, eva pilgrim, thank you. we have the latest now on

aid package. you just have to know how. when david vogel's son ryan was accepted to the university of pittsburgh first came the excitement and then the uncertainty. >> he's really looking forward to this next chapter in his life and going to college and he had been in july right now and my son is supposed to go to school in august. we still don't know what that will look like. >> reporter: he's not alone. across the country as universities grapple with how and if to re-open this fall, about the only thing that's clear is the hefty price tag. the average cost of tuition for a four-year degree at a public school over $41,000 in-state and over $107,000 out. but that doesn't necessarily mean you'll have to pay it. >> i think families are in a particularly good position to negotiate the amount of their tuition for this upcoming school year because colleges are anxious about filling their seats for the upcoming school
year. >> reporter: it's exactly what david vogel did. after multiple zoom calls with the school's financial aid department explaining changes in his financial situation and explaining his son's value to the university -- >> i was able to save over $8,000 over the four years of his college education. >> reporter: so how could you cut your own tuition bill? first up, talk to the right person. >> if you have received need-based financial aid and have experienced a change in circumstances, you want to address your letter to the financial aid office. if you received a merit scholarship, then you generally want to address your letter to the admissions office. >> reporter: next make it personal. >> tell them why you're excited about attending but that it is just the money that is holding you back. >> reporter: finally keep it reasonable. >> if you can convey in your request that a small amount of give on their end will make a big difference to your enrollment decision, that is
when colleges are most likely to be willing to work with you and increase your funding levels. >> reporter: and, remember -- >> if you don't ask, the answer is no. so what do you have to lose by reaching out and investing a little time if it saves you $8,000, it saves you $20,000? it's a great return on investment. >> reporter: it never hurts to ask. just make sure you are asking the right person. you want to look for the director of financial aid, the director of admissions and it also helps to have a personal letter from the student saying what they're going to do inside of the college community, what they plan to do with their education in the long run. amy? >> great advice, rebecca. coming up next we have "crazy rich asians" author, big surprise.

it's not just entertaining, it makes you think. from his crazy successful "crazy rich asians" trilogy to his global box office smash with 240 mill -- >> we've been dating for over a year and i think it's time people met my beautiful girlfriend. >> reporter: it seems everything kevin kwan touches turns to gold. kevin, what is it that gives you the midas touch? >> i feel like everything i do is all about this little post-it right here on my computer and it's joy. >> that's amazing. >> i'm all about bringing joy to the world. >> reporter: his latest novel "sex and vanity" debuting as a "new york times" best-seller. sony pictures already snagged the highly coveted film rights. the book transporting readers to the island of capri as a summer romance sizzles. >> it's a story of food, fashion, love on an island and what happens when lucy
churchill, who is a biracial asian-american wasp, goes to capri and meets a boy named george and she's trying her best not to fall in love. >> lucy is biracial and throughout the book, she encounters racism, both overt and subtle. >> i think there is a through line that runs through my books. in the case of lucy there are so many micro aggressions she's grown up with. i call it a thousand little paper cuts that she collects over the years that sort of help her form that hard outer shell and i think part of what happens in the book is that she breaks through that shell and becomes proud of her identity. >> i think what makes so many of your stories resonate is that we have this sort of love/hate relationship with the super wealthy. >> these people are so posh and snobby, they're snoshy. >> we unfortunately live in a
world where there's such a stark inequali inequality. i really wanted to show that and in some ways satirize that world. >> reporter: we decided to surprise these kevin kwan super fans with a meet and greet they never saw coming. >> how quickly did we read this book, ladies? >> in a day. >> one day. >> quickly. >> what do you love about kevin kwan's writing? but before you answer, why don't we ask somebody to join us. >> oh. >> hello. >> hello. >> wow! >> hello. >> my gosh. >> kevin. >> hi. >> oh, my gosh. >> oh, my gosh. >> reporter: these women say "sex and vanity" gave them the escape they all needed. >> i thought this book was so smart, so witty, i laughed the whole way through. >> i felt like taking a vacation. it felt like i was there living this lavish life but never in a million years would i get to live. >> i hope one day you and all of
you can experience capri. >> we're planning a trip together. >> we're planning a trip together. >> i'll make you a guide of where to go and where to eat. >> awesome. >> reporter: the book striking a deeply personal note for melody who is half japanese. >> i really truly related to lucy in this book and i'm just so grateful to you, kevin. i finally have this protagonist i can relate to on such a personal level. >> were you surprised when kevin came on this call? >> yes. >> yes. >> you know how some people get excited they met beyonce? this is like my beyonce. >> kevin, you're like beyonce basically. beyonce of the book world. >> can't sing or dance like her, but thank you. >> reporter: and you heard it here, kevin kwan is beyonce level superstar. his new book takes place on the beaches of capri and the hamptons and island of manhattan. it's the perfect summer escape fantasy but somehow also manages to make you think twice about what's important in life. lara? >> reporter: oh, it sounds so
good, juju. i am in. thank you very much. everybody, "sex and vanity" is out right now. you can head over to our instagram "gma" book club and watch kevin and juju answer your questions about the book. thank you, kevin kwan. and coming up, how some chefs are cooking up business starting food companies in their own kitchens. great ideas coming at you on "good morning america."
we are back now with "gma's" open for business. with many professional cooks out of work, during the pandemic, some are getting creative. many are getting creative. they're finding new ways to make ends meet while feeding others. becky worley joins us now from san francisco, has more on this story for us. good morning, becky. good to see you, as always. >> reporter: good morning, robin. great to see you. they say necessity is the mother of invention. well, for some chefs who were laid off during the pandemic, they needed income so they invented businesses and they say you can do it too. all you need is a kitchen. mm-mm. what do you get when you mix hungry people stuck at people with out of work chefs eager to keep working? victor laid off from his head chef job at a san francisco restaurant has started a food prep and delivery business in his home kitchen. >> i've always wanted to bring food to san francisco.
>> reporter: he's one of a growing army of entrepreneurial chefs starting a food business in the pandemic. >> kind of crazy when you put your mind to it, you can do whatever you want. >> reporter: emerson lost his job early in the pandemic, but pushed himself to fulfill his dream opening a barbecue pop-up in racine, wisconsin. >> it's been awesome. just the love for barbecue and i think it's something new, the whole situation making people get out of their houses. >> reporter: even the nontrained chefs. upenn student was supposed to be interning at 11 madison park. instead she's selling breads on instagram and beyond instagram apps like wood spoon make it possible for chefs and home cooks to safely sell their tasty bites. >> we help local cooks and they just need to cook amazing food and share it. >> reporter: michael symon has tips for getting started and staying afloat. first get the proper permits and licenses. >> make sure you're doing things
the right way. the last thing you want to do is open something up without the correct permit. >> reporter: vary your menu. >> it's all about making customers happy. don't fall in love with maybe an entire menu. change it up. make it interesting for people. >> reporter: and grow slow. >> sometimes people grow too quickly. really focus on making that business or whatever it is spectacular, successful, both from a quality standpoint and from a financial standpoint before you do the next project. >> reporter: our chef victor is learning all of this on the go even getting his workouts in as he takes me on a delivery run via bike. >> you a fan? >> i am definitely a fan. >> enjoy your food. >> enjoy everything. thank you again. >> thank you so much. >> reporter: all the chefs we spoke with say be sure to check with the public health department in your area before you get started. you want to make sure you have the right permits or licenses and you know all the rules and regulations.
but the good news, robin, is many of those are loosening up now that more people are cooking out of their home and selling to others. >> that's right. so, becky, how do these great chefs good the word out about their businesses? >> reporter: yeah, it's a whole new world. you're not advertising or, you know, running around in food trucks. you really need to use social media here, all the chefs say instagram and facebook are great. you want to post pictures of your food every day. you want to vary your menu and post that on instagram. you also really want to encourage your family and friends to repost and share and you are trying to create this momentum getting repeat customers and maybe even encourage them to share for a discount on their next order. you see this is momentum. we can do this, robin. >> yeah, we can do this. hey, becky, before we go, how are you and the family? we know in california going back to phase 1. so how are you guys doing?
>> reporter: yeah, i mean, all this uncertainty around school is definitely stressful. we're trying to be in the moment and do what we can. we went backpacking last weekend. it was just food for the soul. >> yeah, good for you. all right. always thinking of you, becky, and the family. thanks so much. appreciate it. great advice you gave to those new chefs out there and cooks. back now to ginger. ginger? >> reporter: robin, good morning. time now for a "gma" moment sponsored by verizon. and it's so hot, even the chicken needs the slip and slide. yep. that is 5-year-old aaron with his chicken and you know what, if you got to do it, you got to do it. this weekend you'll be close to 104, the feels like in chicago so keep that slip and slide around for the chicken, aaron.
well, we have all been dealing with a lot of change over the past few months and our next guest has unique insight that can help us get through it. bruce feiler is a best-selling author and has a new book out called "life is in the transition:mastering change at any age." bruce, thank you for being with us. it's important to know you actually started this all way before the pandemic started. you traveled the country and you talk to people who had gone through what you call lifequakes. tell us what a lifequake is. >> well, it's great to see you again, amy. thank you guys for having me. as you heard robin talking about, we're all wondering, am i going to be okay and this, you know, how am i going to handle my family? do i need a career change? where do i want to live? this was me a few years ago as you said.
i just got walloped by life. i got cancer. i nearly went bankrupt. my dad who has parkinson's tried to take his own life and i was scared and i realized that everybody was in this situation in one way or another. and i thought with a can i learn from everyone else that can help me be happier? so i set out on this journey and collected life stories in all 50 state, people lost home, lost limbs, changes careers and religion, got sober, got out of bad marriages. i had 6,000 pages of transcripts and i spent a year digging through it looking for patterns that could help all of us. and so what i'm unveiling here on this show is the first new model for how to navigate life transitions in 50 years. so what i have in this book is a practical tool kit that can help you with whatever you're struggling with and as you said i call them lifequakes. massive changes that hit us and aftershocks can last for years. >> bruce, obviously you talked
to many different people, hundreds and got individual story, but you alluded to this earlier. we are all in this massive lifequake right now. what are some of the takeaways, some of the lessons that can be learned for the rest of us? >> well, i think the number one lesson, the first lesson is the lifequake you go through may be voluntary. you may want to change or a fresh start. it could be involuntary. you could have gotten bad news or have an emergency but the transition that comes out of it must be voluntary. you have to choose to take the steps, to go through the road map that i lay out for you in "life is in the transitions." >> once you choose the transition, once you lean into the transition, what's the next step, bruce? >> well, you know, when you first get into a transition you're scared, you're overwhelmed and think i'm the only one going through it. look at enough of them as i have done and it turns out there is a clear pattern. it turns out transitions have three phases. there's the long good-bye where
you say good-bye to the old you. there's the messy middle where you shed certain habits and create new habits. then there's this new beginning where you unveil your new self so it turns out each is good at one phase, our transition superpower and get bogged down in another which is our kryptonite so what i have in the book is a way to walk you through the process to figure out what stage you're best at. my advice is start there. >> what about those who are really struggling right now? obviously it's an extremely painful time. is there one additional takeaway that people should really focus on in this moment? >> well, i think that one thing i would say, i ask people what was the biggest emotion they struggled with? fear was the number one answer followed by sadness and shame and people tend to turn to rituals to contain and tame those. you know, they jump out of airplanes and have ceremonies and get tattoos and gather people together and that's sort of a signal to say to people i'm saying good-bye to the old self and welcoming the new self. i would say -- the answer to the
question i would say is the biggest single lesson i learned is transitions work. 90% of the people i talk to said they got through there so whatever you're struggling with, if you come on this journey with me you'll meet these people. you'll find in this book something you can do tonight, something tomorrow, next week, a whole road map that will take you. whatever you're struggling with, whatever transition you're going through you can do it better and get through it more effectively. we can get through this together. >> yeah, bruce, i love ending on that hopeful note because that is what we need, hope. great to see you again, bruce. "life is in the transitions" is available now. perfect timing for a book like that. >> absolutely. coming up, a thrill for all of you adventure seekers out there. we have the first live look at the new ford bronco.
