Good morning 11 AM on the West Coast to appeal of course saudis to that this week's tech tape we have people from all over the country talking about today -- a number of different topics everything from the presidential debate how your children weighed in -- Well something a little more serious threat to start with right now thundering go straight to a -- to Elizabeth prime Fran our correspondent in Atlanta talking about how.
Iphones and apps are helping with people -- dealing with PT EST of course is an issue Elizabeth we've covered this story overseas ourselves so many of us -- -- to -- -- differ war zones.
Coming back here we've met and stay in touch with many of those who we met overseas we know this issue is something it's this address the needs to be addressed to so many different.
People -- military dealing with this on -- continue the everyday basis tell us about what you -- Yeah I think this is a story that you're going to be very find out because it's thousands of military men and women come home they're using their Smartphones really.
As a lifeline for a lot of that there he's dealing specifically with posttraumatic stress disorder and this new app and then be speaking about was sponsored by the department of defense and you may be familiar with this out of it's called -- Prolonged expose -- therapy it's called PE.
Coach its application that was just launched over the summer and now there's about.
5000 service men and women using it but basically this is -- first time that this specific type of therapy is being used with technology.
Prolonged exposure is not necessarily a new therapy it's been used for decades and -- backed.
I spoke with doctor -- -- he's a clinical psychologist with the Department of Defense he says -- treatment.
Goes anywhere between eight to twelve sessions and it lasts about five weeks but.
This design has never been used -- -- -- it's created to work with patients.
And therapist together so basically this is not like it's self help program that we've seen before the point is really.
So that the soldier never really feels like he or she is alone during the recovery process.
It simply streamline the professional work done by doctors.
And it works with folks so they can work on their own terms now the timing is essential just like you said in fact the Pentagon.
Reported this summer that the military suicide rate has surpassed that of last year the army report in July.
Very startling statistic that one soldier was committing suicide every day something that we certainly don't want to hear.
From those brave young women who are protecting our nation sergeant first class Michael splits talked about the issue he was burned over 85% of his body in an -- -- he says he wants to see.
More young men and women using this -- here's what he told.
We have to do -- -- to bring those numbers down.
Mean every suicide to me every time -- -- when the newspaper I think you very personal.
Now when I spoke with doctor -- he said there are other tool that you can use online that aren't necessarily quite as interactive so you're just looking for information one of them being.
Deployment -- award.
PT EST -- application which is all just informed then it's not necessarily interacted and if you want more information included www.
PT SD got V8 dot gov.
-- -- -- question you know the military we -- -- story -- -- giving a lot of these out of our soldiers and -- airmen and Marines that are overseas.
They're giving him in our iphones are our iPods and -- they haven't done number of different apps that can be used.
In the course of battle.
This is something obvious -- they can be used as a part of that right I mean this -- -- just for when you come home but even before you go.
Another thing that doctor -- -- really -- bring my attention he said listen we are there for you.
Before your deployed it during your deployment and then after -- -- he also sent big issue was involving the family and we see now with a lot of folks that are involving their and their families.
In the recovery process which is exactly why they're also using technology because.
Listen we all have a Smartphone.
At our fingertips.
So they're using that tool to their advantage -- leverage really and now they're able to help these folks recuperate from obviously a very.
To stressful time in their lives.
-- It would hurt yeah we heard from obviously people in your interview -- the Stanley said would have what are they said about the the this opportunity for there.
Loved ones to be able to how to set the fingertip.
Well I think their families are just so grateful because we didn't necessarily have this type of technology ten years ago.
We only had asked folks that work or having to go to therapy sessions and a lot and that was.
Depending on when they could get into the appointments but now they can go home and with this with this heat coach.
You can see I know it's really difficult -- -- you have -- -- sessions here you can record your session you can play it back perhaps you can share that with your family members at home.
And then you have assessments and you can go to these assessments you have to be alone like I said he could do with a family member perhaps your wife or your spouse.
See how you're doing and then -- appointment and reminders so let's say I have a spouse is coming home from more I download this -- keep solid information my phone.
Elliott can keep an account right now.
So all this technology is really helping the recovery process.
-- minus for people that are watching this online right now are maybe following -- people watching it later although we're not live.
If if they want to use this that they want their loved ones to have this working they find it how can -- get involved with with this new.
This -- ability to be able to carry this on your on your iPhone -- or your android.
-- -- android you can get it it's available you can download like I said on and on your iPhone at an apple or -- available on your android if you're looking for more information on just the program you can go to Debbie Debbie got TTS -- got -- Dot gov but like I said this particular -- he -- I looked it up I don't let downloaded on my iPhone those accessible for people who have a Smartphone.
Great that's awesome little -- and appreciate -- report very good information and we'll make sure we get it out there and get -- -- for everybody it's not watching live right now thanks Elizabeth.
This stuff and thank you may have -- are reports -- here at fox on the big channel Fox News Channel.
I in the last few six at a much as -- -- -- a couple reports but I don't my phones or someplace where they go courts against by an -- they are.
About how the military are using Smartphones in this case have a Blackberry and I have an iPhone.
But how they're using these phones and number to the situations overseas everything from just playing music on them.
To be able to give our troops entertainment because it happens but to be a difficult situation for so many of our troops -- overseas and someplace where they have to pass the time.
To being able to communicate with their families back home and at the same time they can still even control things like drones and -- video in real time.
By using their iphones or some cases -- iPods or similar types devices so it's good to see that they're having this PT SD.
App also now available and I'm sure there's more coming down the pipeline.
-- -- afford to break notice a couple of things around here and -- -- get a chance very often show a lot of gadgets that we stack are set with.
On the today did a great job -- some of the things out here wanna be able to show you in fact right now we're actually lied because of -- hot spot.
You know I tell people all the time is something simple as a hot but actually explain this believe it or not.
To my friends more than probably any other gadget I have but what does -- -- go live from a number of different devices have had one for probably three years right now.
And because they're having some issues with our wireless down here in the studio.
It's keeping me -- on the air right now -- to be able to monitor and talked to people on the Internet as you guys away and with interactions mom from watching the show so that's a really important thing to have and if you're gasoline if -- like Lisa -- tonight iPad for example.
Adding to the three G version.
I got one of these so I can actually go.
From here to here and maybe even take my phone to same time it's the same service price and actually -- hundred dollars cheaper because you don't pay for the extra price on a three G iPad.
We also hear a front -- This is for a while that -- -- -- little love is an -- with Stewart is an Apollo tool set with both high tech facility is stuff we show but we get a chance.
The -- that as you can see this pink.
And inside has everything connected -- actually my grandma bought me one of these in and just black not pink.
And we use it all the time -- keep it in the house a man -- outside the garage and got.
The big till seven it's nice to have around a policy of this out for -- show you and obviously it's something that we think is is pretty cool and maybe not as high tech as we normally show on the air.
Well other -- so throughout the hour.
Appreciative to have of course Elizabeth on Atalanta were going to New York next.
After this break we'll talk a little bit about how your kids reacted to watching the presidential debate and he wasn't surprised.
With some of the numbers out there.
-- -- Nine past the hour right now 1109 here on the West Coast.
And we're gonna go back to New York now and talk about the presidential debate in the campaign you know something that we hear about.
Are how kids are involved.
And what they say -- what day.
Feel about different debates and how these how -- a 2012 campaigns going crystal -- hear from Ed -- -- the CLO and crystal we have some really for listing information about presidents have been weighing in.
On the president's debate we want to welcome from new York -- thanks for joining us.
Thanks Adam for having me appreciate it so -- moto really hurt you -- -- good good.
The guys -- -- -- -- -- that thirteen million users as you mentioned is is the largest K12.
Social learning platform and it's really the place where teachers go dad said to really change and inspired -- way that they're students are learning today.
And leveraging the best of social mobile and really -- -- -- and digital contents.
We -- edgy -- teachers together and -- truly global community of educators where they can service the best.
Topics idea says and -- -- and really.
The way that teachers are are -- -- 2012 presidential elections into the curriculum and the things that they're doing and able to do it there.
They're students now with the -- not a platform.
Has been has been really neat to see a for instance we have.
We have the students in Minnesota.
Watching the debates and really -- -- of what the candidates are saying.
And reporting back in there and -- groups.
On on what they've learned we have.
Students and and that Leonardo New Jersey who are connecting with students in Iowa and -- really comparing and contrasting the different experience from.
From being one state vs.
-- swing state for instance.
So a lot of really exciting activity on -- moto around the debates we see.
Teachers really integrating it and went there.
With their curriculum as well.
I'm also an and in Iowa teachers who work for teaching about the farm bill for instance leveraging the democratic process.
You know crystal -- -- -- in -- long ago I was in high school my teacher was a member I still remember like it was yesterday -- talking about the upcoming election which was.
Two years away at that time which is like 44 years ago it seemed like.
There's a long time ago for me and talking about the upcoming election two years and that was when George Bush won was elected.
And there were integrating him back there but it's so what's different nowadays as you mentioned -- somewhat different things people can do.
And I don't have always been polls that have been taken in fact there are numbered about -- scholastic I think does one and a few others that have been around for generations.
We you guys have won as well you have a couple the fact I want to show some of the the numbers out there right now for the first one is.
Student -- of the first presidential debate.
-- what the thought about President Obama and the governor Romney.
And after the your poll showed -- possibly 6000 students polls show that Romney won that first base 6436.
-- on the same lines of we saw the general population.
It's it's it's really interesting to see how -- students come time come out along that very similar lines but the rest of that the population.
One additional interest in staff that we've seen as last month Obama.
I carried about 60% of the mentions on -- -- and today it's it's -- really neck and -- it's 5050 between Obama and -- Romney in terms of percentage of mentions.
Do you think parents do have an influence so -- kids do go home even with all the high tech.
That's out there in the ability to be on ipads and computers and iphones and everything else I mean they still go home and invariably they sit down talk them on the data they -- -- -- talking about what's going on politics.
Yeah I'm sure that that is part of it in one of the things that we're really -- knowing what teachers are trying to encourage students on on a platform is actually.
Start -- think about the logic and and that different aspects end of the candidates stances and add their approach to debates and really help students think about them how to come to their own conclusions on.
On different topics and I think that's been a really interesting part of that and the learning experience on -- night out.
-- also poll done after the vice presidential debate when I go to those numbers as well little bit different here.
I'm back a little bit more in favor of Vice President Biden and the general population sixty -- 37 whereas.
If you look at most pulls up the vice presidential debate it was a lot closer than that but the -- seem to be impressed by Vice President Biden.
And now pretty overwhelmingly.
In their opinion of the 3000 students as compared to 6000 in the presidential one.
-- polled in this.
October 11 and twelfth they came -- 6337.
That's right I think some of the into -- I anecdotes that came from the vice president and -- debates I comments on -- -- was really a focus on.
That day their approach of the candidates in terms of the way.
They look the way they interacted with one another.
What they wore.
There was really interesting comments from students at about.
What it took to actually have a debate in the impact that -- on people's impressions.
You know ask you also picked people home and parents don't know about it moto explain basically what is it we talking about -- like Facebook for kids -- me.
Can -- be accessed from home.
How do you know the kids are only.
And and age groups you talked about in the -- you talked about.
Yes we've had at about 85% of bad the -- the top.
A larger schools in the US have rolled by the -- -- we have users and every country in the world.
And -- moto is really a way for teachers to safely and securely engage their students online and -- had.
Delivered digital contents assignments -- quizzes.
It's also the place that teachers come together and I mention this.
Global community that teachers are part of and they can start to surface these really.
Great ideas and discussions that they can then deliver to their students on -- nada.
So it's if it's.
They can be -- from home and at school in in it and kind of the split and obviously secure.
Yeah I can be accessed from.
From anywhere in from any device so we have.
-- of course the the browser web version of that not but also.
-- mobile web version and iPhone and android apps and so no matter what device you have access to.
You can interact with your your fellow classmates in your teachers on a -- -- missing the increase in participation as this presidential bait marches on as we get so much closer to -- Election Day.
Absolutely I think.
And there's -- -- particularly it right after the first -- debate we really saw.
Spike in in discussions and comments around.
The elections in the debate and an all the different ideas that that teachers have -- around.
Integrate this -- and -- into every aspect of the curriculum that they're teaching.
And what fun of course -- -- for somebody at home who wants to maybe get involved with that moto.
It sounds like you do have open source of people can go in and create apps for the programs and maybe get involved if they have an idea I mean obviously the presidential polls in the presidential.
Races -- brought a lot of people out and and got a lot of participation.
But as we know once the presidential race is over there's a lot more going on as well.
That's right of course.
What -- your parents an administrator of course a teacher to student.
You can the bad there's a role for you on midnight and we have a lot of information about -- on at night -- dot com.
And how many people again -- involved roughly we have thirteen million users.
From all over the world from every country in the world.
Are you guys -- do any final polls of who they think -- that you think's gonna win the presidency.
We well we have I'm continuing.
Discussions and and pulls in data that that -- Will be sharing all the way through the elections and an even after his election to get.
A -- some -- and today's students are really interested in what they're talking about.
-- crystal -- from -- moto we appreciate your time we'll check back with you definitely before this election is up some.
Curious to see how those polls go especially after Monday's.
Big debate between the two candidates as well the president of course and the governor so we'll stick we'll stay in touch with you and get back with you for sure sounds good thanks -- But -- crystal hunter joining us from New York -- we come back we have a live in studio guest talking about some more social network stuff.
Some things about the incident I'm also curious about how we social networks you might be involved in so waving to us on Twitter at -- -- and -- live of course right here.
Yeltsin his up on FaceBook -- the FaceBook page.
And we'll answer your questions to stay with us -- to get quick commercial break.
And will be back from live near Los Angeles.
Welcome back this -- it past the hour eleven toy here on the West Coast toward a course on the East Coast again you can follow us on FaceBook as well -- Shalit is here on Twitter of course but also on faced with the FaceBook pages FaceBook dot com slash fox news live.
Joined there is a good place also throw in some comments will be able to.
To weigh in and see what -- saying in that location as well and make sure respond.
So -- -- good we also heard from somebody BB up from Twitter the doctor says.
It's amazing what you can do with an iPhone and an iPhone -- anymore that is -- the obvious comment to make because I can't tell yet.
Seen some of the things that the military can do with the iphones and and and the -- is unbelievable.
And of course we use them it brings it to our nest next guest we use them is -- -- Clemens joins us the founder and CEO of the marketing distillery.
Perfect Segway because we use these phones and for that matter our computers and.
And and tablets.
For social networking.
I mean there's so many amazing things you can do with them but social networking a lot of people -- really help people with job hunting.
Tell people reconnect.
You know siblings in some cases long lost friends -- -- there's so many positive things that come along with this.
And you know.
Even having said that we're using our full potential -- Yeah we're not you know we actually are connecting online to a tremendous extent you know FaceBook numbers you know by them billion active users -- last month.
You know 40% Obama she I excess fees fees will go off of her cell phones and Smartphones.
But you know it we're not -- -- what's going on in the online social space to what's happening in our real lives.
And we did a survey.
We were -- -- -- in a project.
With a sort of in the social local mobile space which you know and it's going to be Jordan Jordanian but you know you've probably heard about that.
And we do we what we had a hunch that that was -- case and so what we do we wanted to look at the facts and so we've defeated big survey of about 900 people across the country.
To figure out what the connections were -- you're online social.
Behavior and you're all flights.
Behavior in but we have some of those numbers you have some pull up right now it's also dangerous interactions.
How -- -- -- social networks to most people blow to.
In a surprise me a little bit -- you know 37% say one point 5% -- tune in 1413.
And then -- -- good on the list -- you know five or -- 6%.
What surprised -- years with FaceBook with Twitter with pictures of all these different ones out there I expect that number -- have been a lot higher -- thought people.
Between what it would have found -- they -- it seems -- what is still the most popular number.
Yeah actually submit your visual and point eight soda scoreless going to cook which is still -- -- -- -- -- -- of surprises as well but you know we realize that we -- in the business -- -- microcosm of social -- -- -- probably.
You use five or six or seven -- towards.
Right do is -- they do own personal basis.
The -- -- word it would not representative of the population in general anyway.
No so we saw Louise -- -- -- -- -- of almost 900 people should have pretty good sample and the average was about to.
So we noticed a party FaceBook and maybe maintain or maybe Twitter.
And you know we're like in the real slice of the 6%.
-- -- -- -- What you know it's funny image next time economic member of six but only really use him tonight is to -- and almost I really really.
-- used to because -- -- just -- aspect of all things -- CNN I think the answer to that question pointed to that as well to do with the question was phrased it probably -- people -- thought about the -- the ones I use of the wanna be too -- to -- active -- -- in -- -- known to auction the five or six by the only use probably about -- the chicken into what exactly -- -- more numbers are too.
And that is with those kind of distinct.
Have you ever had an in person meeting with someone you met on a social networking he's seen the movies out there you've heard the stories and some of the horror stories that involves but also some positives of it as well.
Today according to within your guys research.
Said -- had.
And in person meeting with someone and that a social network -- 85% said they had that that's surprising about the number would be a lot higher than that.
Well this kind of forward what we thought the and so we -- we beyond the ideal -- the survey was that.
We would look of these attractions and the fact is that people use online social networks.
To connect online.
It's a way to fly to connect with people were not geographic.
Next to you and so what's we're not the -- surprise -- some of it there was little bit high but.
The the idea is that people don't three C.
Those on -- couldn't connections the same way they see their personal ones and the rest of the serving a sure you're gonna get to that being in the second prove that fact.
Yet that's what's going to next -- right now -- which was I how many social networks do you use for professional slash business purposes.
This -- really shocked me because of all what he showed 67%.
I mean that is that is.
Those -- customers that you are not connecting with.
One what -- we get up really only with eighty some 87%.
Of the people surveyed use one or not.
On the social networks and to connect for business purposes.
I've asked for business for purposes so we know the idea here is it's probably the -- they use is Linkedin is more for more likely you know they've grown -- tremendously to over 150 million users.
And you know we're we're not a surprise either -- -- very few people outside of your circle in my circle of -- -- about people we were equipped use social networks -- for.
-- do you do you think that people are missing an opportunity because he endorses a little people know how I mean.
Maybe two years ago when -- phones and an -- we're still kind of -- -- cutting edge a little bit I mean nowadays are the common -- -- you -- Mike my father was to go to the store is his cell phones are meaningless to get a foot bomb because he wants something old that -- simplest -- you know pocket now somebody.
You can't fight flip phones hardly anymore he's having -- battle define what I mean.
To get a Smartphone is pretty common for any phone you get these days very hard not get a Smartphone.
It is very common right fifty plus percent of phones sold two days mobile phones -- Smartphones -- -- this was a start treaties yesterday that.
More than one billion cell phones or Smartphones for an active which is -- -- striking.
But forget -- the it's a different the other big miss on suspicion owned businesses -- and all professionals who want to connect for personal reasons.
Such as you know interviews.
Finding new jobs beginning to clients in getting new.
He leads Andy you know but says the success of thinking has been predicted -- upon people actually using the professional right networks and they've been working -- while.
But I think the average user issue of social networks it'll be behind -- While no -- I -- -- oldest story on you guys.
I mean obviously Facebook's what -- talks about the social -- -- in the course you talked about Linkedin -- interest you've got.
Even yesterday -- was just moto so I mean.
Do you think it.
I guess the question I have -- if you have all these historic place you can go to you can I -- But you try to -- nobody had a -- -- losing or sort of assuming a FaceBook social on Twitter and vice Versa but is there is there.
Portal out there a place out there where you can taken really combined mean -- and obviously I hope we can all the -- and monitor all the don't want time.
Yet very few that try to FriendFeed if you remember she -- yes my friends I got that was pretty successful in the required by I can't remember who missed points one of the -- on.
But there are few places you can use pre deck for -- -- can control your Twitter feed the right -- a FaceBook feed and a few things into into as well.
You can use things like.
Season because -- used to be what's appropriate healthful.
But it really you know there's not really one place that you can go to manage all the solutions -- which I think was back to -- thing we talked about -- -- -- you know of the segment which is.
That's why probably people only use about two networks on draw because it becomes very overwhelming as you can tedious you just an overwhelming -- if I do and sincerity into -- there's also one software or system that.
We use that we think is genius called I FT TT dot com -- that this band that's.
Which is really great it's basically the -- would have made the Greek connection between all of your difference with little -- -- -- vehicles.
I have TT dot com politics do you think if this then that -- -- -- -- TTT dot com.
Any final thoughts -- I mean I did at the I think people maybe -- -- in the business I think -- -- -- a little bit.
They are missing and you know that's what Snowe RDH because it doesn't help businesses that we really use and maximizing the use of social media.
For business purposes -- and they were also very introducing this connection between online social and offline social.
And so we are going to do a series of surveys and hopefully you know more beautiful graphics and and hopefully national will be just kind enough to to put to control.
I didn't want to can relate to yeah the government that click on people we were referenced in the numbers we had weapons of course will live -- -- -- -- -- -- while -- -- -- will be -- -- Going -- a follow up -- that will follow with you those numbers.
RJP Clement thanks so much founder and CG AO of the marketing distillery.
And you can follow him at and are -- at at and -- isms so it's -- in a L Weiss TI CI SMS.
To follow that I hope so well on their it is probably would probably under is under him on his name when we were -- showing them -- they face an entity thank you.
All right let's this week's -- take from here Los Angeles of course we're gonna go back to New York where we have fox 401 Laura -- my colleague sitting there ready to talk about Hollywood right.
That's right we've got some musicians to talk to and an actress -- well and thank you very much Adam -- I've been listening to your show it's very dead and not the watching -- a lot on TV lately.
