♪ and here comes the bride. a very first look at angelina jolie's wedding dress and the heartwarming story of the artwork sewn into it today. today, september 2nd, 2014. >> announcer: from nbc news this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. >> and good morning. welcome to "today" on a tuesday morning. i'm matt lauer along with natalie morales, al roker, and willie geist. savannah remains on maternity leave. we knew she would look beautiful in the dress, angelina jolie. that's a given. but now there's a sentimental story part of the very fabric of the dress. i'm over these two. done. they're too perfect. >> clearly a family affair. everybody involved.
really just a special moment there. meanwhile, the summer is winding down. the summer concert series still in full swing. we have a great concert for you today. counting crows on the plaza. this following a spectacular week which started with maroon 5 yesterday. and usher we have later on in the week. let's get to our top story on a tuesday morning. the u.s. responds to growing terror threats around the world as the military carries out an air strike aimed at leaders in a key group in somalia. jim miklaszewski is nbc's chief pentagon correspondent. mik, good morning. what can you tell us? >> reporter: good morning, matt. u.s. officials tell nbc news the air strikes were aimed at the top leader in al shabaab, a terrorist group in somalia. they're currently digging through all the after action intelligence to make sure they got their man. the attacks occurred just in south of mogadishu in a remote area of somalia. the u.s. military drones fired
hellfire missiles and destroyed at least two of the al shabaab vehicles. but the target was axmed godane who is the top leader of al shabaab. also known as abu zubair. he is on the top wanted list for terrorists worldwide. godane is accused of being the mastermind behind the terrorist attack against the westgate shopping mall in nairobi, kenya nearly two year ago killing 67 and wounding 172. now almost a year ago, u.s. navy s.e.a.l.s went ashore in somalia to try to capture godane, but they got engaged in a fierce firefight and were forced to leave empty handed. if it's confirmed that godane was indeed taken out, this would be a huge but probably only temporary victory in what now appears to be a seemingly endless war against terrorists. matt. >> all right. jim miklaszewski at the pentagon on this story. mik, thank you very much. meantime, the president is
facing mounting pressure to take stronger military action against another terror group. this time isis. this as the president gets set to travel overseas for crucial nato meetings. nbc's national correspondent peter alexander is at the white house. peter, good morning. >> reporter: matt, good morning. president obama will leave here from the white house this afternoon for meetings with allies in europe about a unified strategy to try to contain isis's aggressive moves for both terror and territory. even as that extremist group continues this well funded media savvy effort to recruit westerners including americans. president obama now faces foreign policy challenges on several fronts. the threat from isis, this latest propaganda video just released, a russian invasion in ukraine, and libya diving back into chaos. with critics from both parties attacking the president's handling of isis, some calling him too cautious, others saying blasting his foreign policy for being in absolute freefall. the u.s. unleashed another round
of air strikes in iraq this weekend. and humanitarian air drops. the president's next stop? estonia to show support for baltic leaders in vladimir putin's backyard. then a meeting with nato leaders in wales, great britain where isis fears led the british government to raise its terror threat level. warning citizens a terrorist attack is highly likely. >> mr. speaker, passports are not an automatic right. >> reporter: on monday, prime minister david cameron announced top anti-terror tactics proposing new rules to seize the passports of british nationals who become radicalized and join islamic militant groups. >> it is abhorrent that people who declare allegiance elsewhere are able to return to the united kingdom and pose a threat to our national security. >> reporter: a threat across europe where hundreds are suspected to have already joined isis and other extremists groups. u.s. officials estimate as many as 100 americans have done the same. >> the u.s. government is not even sure that we know where these people are or how many
have gone. there remains a serious threat that these people will return to the united states and carry out terrorist attacks here. >> reporter: and this morning the international rights group amnesty international is accusing isis of carrying out a systemic campaign of what it calls ethnic cleansing in northern iraq. the united nations is sending a team there to investigate war crimes by isis that it calls acts of inhumanity on an unimaginable scale. matt, natalie. >> all right. peter alexander at the white house. peter, thanks. meanwhile, al is tracking the threat of more severe weather in the wake of those storms in the midwest yesterday causing major damage. >> that's right. look at this tornado. it's almost like a scene out of a movie. this is dexter, kansas. and you can see it just barely illuminated by this lightning here. that's kind of frightening. it's a huge tornado. luckily it was in a fairly rural area. no problems, but we then move into parts of iowa, denison, iowa. you can see a lot of lightning and strong storms making their way through that area.
look at that lightning strike. it was right near a storm chaser. he was very fortunate. he was slightly injured and is expected to recover completely. let's show you what's happening right now. very active line of storms along the kansas/oklahoma border stretching into southern missouri and on into central ohio. and with these storms, we've got the risk of strong storms along the front that's pushing east from utica all the way to lexington, kentucky. we could be looking at damaging winds, hail and a lot of strong storms out of this thing with a lot of flooding rain. and we've got a big area of high pressure pumping up warm, humid air. look at this. it's going to feel like 97 in atlanta today. 102 in charleston. charlotte, 100. all the way up here to the northeast, where the kids are starting school, you don't want to sit in a classroom where it feels like the upper 90s. it will be less humid tomorrow, then, matt, the humidity returns back on thursday. >> all right, al. thank you very much. now to the ebola crisis and what's being done to stop the deadly virus from spreading
further. so far 1,500 people have died across west africa and the world health organization says up to 20,000 may contract ebola in the next six months. dr. tom frieden is the head of the centers for disease control. he just returned from africa. dr. frieden, good morning to you. >> good morning. >> i know you track all kinds of outbreaks and i know you're also usually very careful not to spread panic when it's unnecessary. but when you come back from africa and you say the situation there is worse than you expected, it gets attention. so what surprised you? >> well, unfortunately, first off, we have the world's first epidemic of ebola and it's spiraling out of control. the situation is bad and it looks like it's going to get worse quickly. there is still a window of opportunity to tamp it down, but that window is closing and we need to act now. >> why is this particular outbreak -- there have been outbreaks in the past and they tend to come under control in a few months.
why is this out-pacing the efforts to control it? >> this is different from every other ebola situation we've ever had. it's spreading widely throughout entire countries, multiple countries, cities, and it's very fast. it's spiraling out of control. what we have to do is begin to reverse the process by acting now. immediately sending in resources, specialized people, people to help. and ensuring we are all collaborating and working together to get the maximum impact. >> you say sending people in. and unfortunately as you well know many of these poor countries where the outbreak is occurring, they've had years of war and conflict. that's one of the problems. they have fewer resources than they need, and health care workers who are already there are contracting the virus and are either withdrawing or dying. how do you convince people to go into the front lines? >> the united states government is leaning forward. we are running fast. cdc has had hundreds of people
working on this response. we have 70 in the region now. the whole u.s. government is looking at this and working hard. but really the people within the countries are willing. they say very clearly, we're willing to do whatever we can but there are certain things we need help on, we need resources on. if you look at the ebola treatment units, they're 90% staffed by local folks. if you look at the burial teams working sometimes until 10:00 at night and often being ostracized by their families and communities and having to sleep on the ground and going back the next day, they're made of local folks. so there is a willingness there to confront it, but they need the world to support them. >> cdc director dr. tom frieden, thank you very much. all right. and willie's here now with some scary moments for passengers on a flight to florida. >> another one of these reclining seat situations. unbelievable. an unruly passenger in a fight over a reclining seat caused big problems again monday night. the delta flight took off from
new york's laguardia and was headed for west palm beach. passengers say a woman tried to recline her seat, but the woman behind her became irate, started screaming and swearing. demanding that the plane land. the pilot diverted the plane to jacksonville where it landed safely. police removed the passenger and the flight continued on to west palm beach. a huge search is underway this morning after a mass breakout from a youth detention center in nashville, tennessee. a spokesman said about 30 teens escaped overnight by squeezing through a weak spot in a fence. a dozen inmates have been captured. officials don't know yet if the escape was planned or spontaneous. good news out of the middle east this morning. all 25 people on board a u.s. marine helicopter rescued monday after the chopper crashed at sea. a helicopter like this one was attempting to land on the "uss mesa verde" when it went down.
17 marines and 8 sailors went down and were recovered. the crash was not the result of hostile activity. family and friends of joan rivers are holding out hope this morning the comedienne will make a recovery. nbc's stephanie gosk is outside mt. sinai hospital with the latest on her condition. stephanie, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. family and friends and well wishers continue to come here to show their love and support for joan rivers. but there's been very little new information out there since we heard on thursday that she stopped breathing during a surgical procedure on her throat. she was rushed here to mt. sinai. her daughter melissa rivers and grandson cooper came here to be be her side. the latest family statement from melissa reads released on sunday, thank you for your continued love and support. we are keeping our fingers crossed. meanwhile, the celebrity twitter-sphere continues to
light up. it shows not how much joan rivers is loved, but it shows how far reaching herrin influence continues to be. tweets from ellen degeneres, sarah silverman, andy cohen. expect those to keep coming in as people pull for her recovery. >> we are rooting for you, joan rivers. thank you so much. we are looking at eruptions of lava from an icelandic volcano. plumes of magma shot 200 feet in the air. ash and smoke can be seen for miles. scientists warn this latest eruption could signal an even bigger one in the coming days. >> you've got to say it for al. >> that's your line. >> magma. >> austin powers. >> al was doing that peripherally while i was reading the story. >> dr. evil. >> i saw the finger go up.
>> magma. >> now a check of the weather. >> want to get a sharknado with a laser mounted on its freaking head. let's show you what's happening today. a strong risk of storms as we told you. also high surf advisories along the texas coast. that's due to tropical storm dolly. we'll look at this in the next half hour. look at showers moving in the pacific northwest. the heat in the plains. a gorgeous day in minneapolis with sunshine at 79 degrees. we'll get to your forecast coming up in the next 30 seconds. makes it so hard to get a seat using your miles. that's their game. the flights you want are blacked out. or they ask for some ridiculous number of miles. honestly, it's time to switch to the venture card from capital one. with venture, use your miles on any airline, any flight, any time. no blackout dates. and with every purchase, you'll earn unlimited double miles. from now on, no one's taking your seat away. what's in your wallet?
good tuesday morning, i'm christina loren looking live at a foggy sky over bodaga bay. we have a lot of cloud cover this morning. you can see that clearly here. with that on shore flow, temperatures will drop to ten degrees. what a cool down in store, and yesterday was hot. enjoy the upper 70s today on the peninsula. 82 degrees for the south bay, 72 degrees on the east shore. hot day in the tri-valley, but down by about ten degrees, 86 degrees out thereto for you today. >> and that's your latest weather. natalie? >> all right. thank you, al. two new diet studies are making headlines this morning for their interesting take on weight loss. one explores a possibility of being able to rewire your brain to crave healthier foods while the other aims to settle the long-standing low carb versus low fat diet debate. and with us is dr. nancy snyderman. good morning. let's get to this first one. could we cure our sugar addictions by rewiring or retraining the brain?
>> we used to think no. this is a small study from tufts. 13 people. but what they showed was when people made healthy choices, that is whole wheat pasta and the white stuff and started to eat what they liked with healthy substitutions they could rewire their brain and in some cases the pleasure center started to light up when they made healthy choices within two weeks. so actual confidence that yes, if you start to make smart choices you can rewire your brain to tell yourself i like this better. >> as you mentioned it's a small study. they looked at the mris of these 13 individuals. what's the takeaway? how do you condition yourself? >> make smart choices and then make substitutions slowly. if you love pasta, that's okay. or meatloaf, that's okay. just pick lower fat meat. use whole wheat pasta. you without an mri, can rewire
your brain with that pasta. that can rewire your brain to say i like this better. >> the next one found that a low carb diet is more effective for weight loss than a low fat diet. >> this is the ongoing debate. low carb, low fat. what do you do? and this was out of tulane. they took people ages from 70 down to 20, mixed race. and they found people who had lower carb intake, higher protein intake had better weight loss and more sustained weight loss and it even shocked them. now, i just want to say that does not mean throw out your bread. it means stay away from processed foods. white pasta, potatoes that won't give you nutrients especially if you take off the skin, and processed bread. interestingly, what's back in? the incredible edible egg. people who had eggs for breakfast, a phenomenal source of protein. and people who embraced good fats not only kept the weight off but has made a 30% decreased risk of heart attack and stroke. fat matters. >> the good fats.
>> the good fats, good protein, good carbs. >> all right. dr. nancy, thank you. >> thanks very much. meanwhile there is more fallout this morning over that massive hacking of celebrity photos. carson's in the orange room with more on that. >> i'm here deleting photos off my phone. the fbi is involved now. it's the biggest hacking case ever. it's leading a lot of questions. we figure people at home are wondering what is the icloud? is it safe? how much of my information is on the icloud? we have lance ulanoff here who is a chief correspondent and tech expert. good to have you here. you're busy on twitter helping our viewers out write your question and hash tag it orange room. we'll break it down for you. what's in the cloud. how you can turn stuff on and off. guys, back to you. >> all right, carson. thank you very much. we're going to have more on the fallout from that including how the stars who were targeted are now reacting. plus the dramatic rise in

buildings in mogadishu. president obama stops in estonia before heading to a key nato summit in wales a little bit later in the week. and dolly, the fourth tropical storm of the atlantic hurricane season, it is expected to make landfall in mexico and bring rough surf and strong rip currents to beaches in south texas. coming up this morning, they say the apple does not fall far from the tree. that holds true for clint eastwood's son scott. he's about to star in a major movie. this morning he's sitting down with jenna bush hager for his first interview. >> not a bad assignment. let's start with the investigation into a massive celebrity photo hacking scandal. this targeted everyone from an oscar winner to music superstars and models. and it has people concerned about their safety of their personal photos. jacob rascon has the latest on
this. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning to you. many are calling this the biggest celebrity hacking ever. apple and the fbi now investigating personal sometimes provocative photos of the stars taken from online storage used by almost anybody with an iphone. this morning the fbi has joined the investigation into how more than 100 celebrity accounts may have been hacked. including that of academy award winner jennifer lawrence. the star of "the hunger games" franchise is dealing with a different kind of spotlight. dozens of nude and risque photos posted on an anonymous online image sharing site now shared countless times. other reported victims include supermodel kate upton, ariana grande, kim kardashian, and hope solo. the unidentified hacker claims what he stole was stored on the
apple icloud which is a collection of servers like these used by hundreds of people. it's a scenario like in the comedy "sex tape" in which a private video goes viral. >> it went up to the cloud. >> and you can't get it down? >> nobody understands the cloud. >> if a hacker wants to hack into a cloud-based system, at some point they're going to get through to some degree. >> reporter: apple which operates icloud released this statement. we take user privacy very seriously and are actively investigating this report. several tech websites are reporting apple fixed within the find my iphone function which may have been exploited by the hackers. publicists for lawrence and upton all but confirm the photos and call for prosecution. others say their leaked photos are fake. >> this is a wakeup call for hollywood but all of us. our information is going to be on a cloud at some point. now is the time to say how safe
is my information there? >> reporter: and experts we talked to are quick to point out that intrusions in the icloud and other cloud storage systems are extremely rare, but they say this is a new reality. we put what is personal on shared storage, there is always going to be some risk. back to you. >> jacob rascon, thank you very much. the celebrity side of this is getting the attention. the fact is everyone should have questions about what is being shared. >> brought in the big guns. a tech expert. what is the cloud? >> it's not magic. it's just servers that you have internet access to wherever you are in the world. when your stuff is on somebody else's servers, you access it or store stuff there. >> in this case the icloud, how vulnerable is it? >> as vulnerable or invulnerable as any other cloud-based service. they all have encryption. they all work hard to protect your stuff but it goes down to how good is your password?
>> this find your iphone app, does that make you less vulnerable having that turned on? >> not necessarily. there were questions that if you keep hitting with pass words it might not be vulnerable. >> how about photo share? >> it's a shame to do that. photo share is a great thing to do because it stores your photos in the cloud. so if something goes wrong in your phone, you have the chance to get them back. that means unique passwords, whatever you can do. >> when apps close quickly, is that a sign you've been hacked? >> no. not at all. that's usually just a glitch in the application. a lot of times you don't even know, right? you don't know you're being attacked. they have a phishing attempt. something official. you respond and sign in. >> it asks you to verify a password. meanwhile you're just giving
that information out. >> exactly. usually you're in a world of trouble there. >> keep the questions coming in. he'll stick around and answer them. just #orangeroom so we can see them. >> good stuff. thank you very much. >> lots of questions out there. let's get a check of the weather once again. al? >> we've got tropical storm dolly right now. 45 mile-per-hour winds. it's moving west at 13 miles per hour. and so as it comes on shore, we have the danger of rip currents and high surf from houston down to brownsville, texas. and even though the bulk of the rain is going to stay in mexico, we're looking at a decent amount of rainmaking its way into southern texas from brownsville into corpus christi, one to two or three inches of rain locally. rest of the country showers in the pacific northwest. 68 in seattle. beautiful day in los angeles, 76. and look for showers and thunderstorms moving into the

but genetics makes comparison to his father unavoidable. what is abundantly clear is scott eastwood adores his dad. >> he grew up in an era where men were sort of men and i can't thank him enough for sort of teaching me just, you know, go out there. he didn't care what i did. he didn't care if i was a plumber, or if i was anabilitier. whatever you do, just do it well, and be humble about it, and be a good guy. and tell the truth. >> come on. >> he almost didn't go into the family business. >> scott had a front row seat to the good, the bad, and the ugly, at making movies. >> you grew up on the set of your dad's movies. you were in several of them. what was that like? >> it's just been great. it's been great to see a master at work and be a part of it. i think when i was in high school i thought maybe i was a little too cool for it or maybe girls got more important or i don't know then i realized, this is a great life. i want to do this. so i better figure it out.
>> so what have you learned from your dad? >> just be humble and work hard, and, you know, be a man. show up, and do the job. >> his current job may be a game changer for scott. nicolas sparks movies have a well established track record at the box office. his co-star is brett robertson. nicolas sparks movies are known for romance. you guys got the chemistry? >> that's what they say. they're like you guys have great chemistry. i think we bicker like an old married couple. >> which is good chemistry. >> that's true, i guess. he has all these sisters and stuff so he claims he can take it. >> has he? >> and he has. he's touch a trouper i'll give him crap all the time and he just takes it and takes it and takes it. it's impressive. >> nicolas spashs the producer on the film is on set most days. do you think these two are new hollywood royalty? >> i think from what i've seen and the way they've wrked and just the level of skill they bring to their profession, yeah, and let's be honest. they're both people you like to

>> we'll eat less popcorn. >> perfect. >> jenna, thank you. >> still to come this morning we have a live concert from the counting crows. we're back in 30 seconds. back now at 8:18 with a tragedy that we reported on far too often this summer. children dying after being left in sweltering cars. in a moment we're going to talk to a mother who lost her son less than two months ago and hopes her personal tragedy can become a public turning point.
it's every parents' nightmare. on july 7th, kyle was supposed to drop his son benjamin at day care but instead he drove to work accidentally leaving his 15-month-old in the car for several hours. it wasn't until that afternoon when he went to pick him back up that kyle discovered his son was still in the back seat. he rushed the boy to the hospital, but it was too late. young benjamin died of hypothermia or overheating. it's a tragedy that benjamin's mother is seeking to prevent from happening again in the form of technological safeguards by automakers and government regulations. the story of her crusade is featured in this week's "time" magazine. >> the loss of a loved one is always difficult. the loss of a child is almost incomprehensible. she has been channelling her grief and traumatic experience to inquire into why there aren't regulations governing this kind of thing. >> reporter: toddler hot car deaths like benjamin's have been
grabbing headlines this summer. after the death of cooper harris in georgia. his father has pleaded not guilty to murder. 24 children have died in hot cars so far this year. with over 500 such deaths since 2000, it's demanding attention and action. and lindsey rogers is with us now. good morning. my condolences. you're brave to be here this morning. >> thank you, matt. >> everybody says this can't happen to me. it won't happen to my family. and you say you thought the exact same thing. >> absolutely. every summer you see this in the news. and it's so easy. in the past i've said it can never happen to me. unfortunately we are proof it can happen to any american. i mean, we could be -- to all the listeners we could be you, your best friend, your parent, the neighbor down the street. >> i know you don't want to talk about the specifics of what happened on the day that benjamin died, because there is
an ongoing investigation. the outcome is unclear. but how did you deal with the enormous grief and the questions you must have had in your own mind? >> yeah. well, how we dealt with the grief, we miss him profoundly every day. we really came together as a family honestly. we love each other so much and we hold onto each other every day. but then as an attorney and just as a mother trying to understand how this can happen, i honestly just began researching and looking into the truth and the facts of how this happens every year. >> about your husband kyle who must be dealing with incredible grief and guilt as well, you said this. even the moment i found out, there was never a moment i questioned him or my love for him. it was just how do we deal with this new reality. >> yeah. never once. i think that's the hardest part for some people to understand. when you have a solid foundation in your life and we're christians and we just have a wonderful family. i always love him and i know
this would hurt him more than anybody else. >> you want to raise awareness. you want other people to find out about this and realize it can happen to them. you've done a lot of research. you know, we think about this. we report on this far too often. and i've always thought isn't there a piece of technology, something that can be built into a car when a temperature in a car that's turned off gets to a certain level, an alarm goes off. what have you found? >> what i've found is that some car manufacturers have known about this serious safety problem since 2001 and gm in particular said they were going to install devices in 2004 and nothing has happened. since then there have been over 520 deaths. we know the government is aware of this and they have been working on potential legislation that could be put out there and it hasn't happened yet. i feel like we need expert panels put together to find a good solution for this. >> are you finding that perhaps this isn't being built into new cars right now because of cost? or is this a situation where the
companies are leery of doing this because if that device or technology doesn't work, then they're going to be held accountable? >> you know, i'm a lawyer. think of all the things right now that are in cars that could potentially have liability? that's why they have good legal counsel. that may be part of it, but i don't think it's an excuse because kids are dying. i mean, i think a lot of it is right now we can sit back and most americans can just blame parents, try to think you're different. and if a car manufacturer doesn't want to act, they're not forced to act right now. >> you talk about people blaming other parents. i have to tell you when we cover tragedies like this and have in the past, i'm always surprised when you go online and you look at some of the comments -- >> i don't read those, matt. >> i wouldn't if i were you. because you always see people pointing the finger saying i would never leave my child in a car. i know it couldn't happen. this parent must have "x," "y," or "z."
>> yep. it's called the fundamentalal attribution error. i ask parents the question have you ever driven to work and forgotten how you got there? have you ever walked from the living room to the bedroom and forgot what you were going to get? it can happen in a second and your life is changed forever. >> you mentioned your life changed forever. it is still possible charges could be filed against your husband. how would that change your life even further? >> we'll get through. i mean, really, we fought about that. we hold onto each other. and we will get through no matter what and we're doing this for ben. >> i think you're brave to be here and talk about this. so hopefully other families don't have to go through it. >> me too. >> thank you so much. our condolences again. >> thank you so much. >> and we're back after your local news.

>> we can drop it into the open. >> i'm watching tv last night. put the kids to bed about 8:45, something like that. i'm flipping around as i'm reading my e-mails. as soon as i put on my tv it comes to nbc automatically. i see tamron hall doing this. ripping the guts out of a squirrel. >> don't say it like that. >> what were you doing with bear grylls? >> i was trying to survive. >> did you eat that? >> i, indeed, ate it. >> raw or cooked? >> cooked. we the great people of utah is like that's not it. >> does it taste like chicken? >> it absolutely does not. >> what does it taste like? >> a funky, pungent taste and smell. bear grylls said, you know, pull -- we found the squirrel. it was there and so he said -- >> it was already dead. >> he said in the wild, though,
you get fresh meat. it's not whole foods. so you got to take advantage of the situation. so we also had crickets. which we ate those. but the squirrel needed to be cleaned. and so i kept pulling at the little -- >> with your bare hands? >> with my bare hands. i know. well, i didn't kill him. he held it up. >> and he said tamron pull. just getting the innards out of there. >> i hope you've had your breakfast. it's 9:00, you should have. >> did you take power bars with you? >> no. when you are in the situation in the wild, you got to -- i did say, can we have a vegan diet? but he said you need protein in the wild. you've got to survive. so i did survive and we had a live tweet thing last night. yeah. that booty though was repeated. you were aware when ariana grande was here. that's what she referred to it as. >> not really code.
>> and now you nominate willie geist to try it. >> i would love to. >> all of you would be phenomenal. >> i don't think i could eat squirrel. >> you'd starve. you guys would be great. al would be amazing. he would make bear grylls laugh the whole time and they'd end up somewhere fun. natalie's super athletic. but willie has the longest legs of any human being i've ever seen. i want to see him rappel with his 6'5" frame. >> he wouldn't have to. he'd just jump. >> take two steps and he's down. >> he could grasshopper crawl and he could crawl over your legs. i want to see willie out there. >> bear, did you hear that? >> that's a fun show. >> we learned a lot watching it. >> we started a fire. >> did they have those mounted on the trees?
little purell pump? as soon as you walk. . you can tap it for sap or get some purell. >> the squirrel was there for the take sog was the purell. >> they gave me a backpack and said bring what you want from home that fits in. i brought purell thinking i would wash my hands. >> i would have brought a power bar. would have been my suggestion. >> i did bring chocolate. yeah. i did have a piece of chocolate. it was a fun show. thank you so everybody who watched. >> good show. let's talk about the story a lot of people are talking about this morning. certainly if it applies to you now. fbi and apple are investigating the hacking of celebrity accounts including those of jennifer lawrence and kate upton. they're calling for prosecution. the unidentified hacker claims he stored pictures stored in the apple icloud. used by hundreds of millions of
people and probably used by you at home. apple released this statement. we take user privacy very seriously and are actively investigating this report. this story brought up a lot of questions about the cloud. >> what is the cloud, right? >> no one quite understands it as in this recent movie. >> it went up to the cloud. >> and you can't get it down from the cloud? >> nobody understands the cloud. >> see. they don't. >> so it's a big storage space. the icloud is just one cloud-based server. >> google. google drive. >> stores your photos, video. in one poll 90% of people polled said they were aware of the cloud. only 29% said they used it but they probably had it and didn't know about it. >> or netflix. any time you download a movie off of netflix, the reason they can instantly stream is because they're getting it off the cloud. >> so this has opened a lot of people's eyes to, my gosh, what
i thought was private is now up in the cloud and accessible. >> and you can't delete. even if you delete a message or photo, they still live on in the cloud. >> which is what happened to celebrities with these. we all have iphones. i get a message saying your storage is full. it pushes you into getting into one of the icloud or drop box, whatever it may be. because how many pictures do you have or video on your phone these days? and pictures you want keep. before we had polaroids or you get them printed out at the drugstore. you'd have a box of them. now this is your box and all of the pictures are here. >> if it's connected to your computer, sometimes that can be hacked. but today it's amazing. you can get a terabyte or two terabytes of storage for under a hundred bucks. >> what's that?
what's a trerabyte? >> it's a backup drive basically. you can store all your photos and movies on this hard drive that aren't that much bigger than this. that way it's there. and you're not on the cloud. >> but what's interesting, most people -- if you have a new iphone, it comes with the cloud built in and you're sort of automatically already on it. you can disable it. >> if you use icloud or you use the apple service, then yes, you're on the cloud. >> androids have it too. >> they all have it. but you can limit what you put on there. ricky gervais got into some hot water. he tweeted something out basically if you don't put stuff on there, celebrities, it won't get on there. and lena dunham said don't blame the victim which is true. but he does raise a point. if you don't put it out there, it won't be out there. >> i don't think everyone has nude, naked pictures like myself
and willie. but -- >> we do? >> a little humor here. unique humor in this world. but what i'm saying is you do have pictures of your children and vacations. no, it's not an issue of whether or not i have inappropriate -- whatever that definition is. you do what you want to do. but i don't want our pictures that i maybe haven't shown of your children, that's the issue. >> and it's not just photos and it's not just this. think of the time you go onto your bank accounts online. if you think that information is living up there too. so it's not just -- >> the new world. >> it's the new world. >> you click on this -- >> now it's the cloud you have to worry about. >> probably one of my favorite stories of the day, we're getting more details about angelina jolie and brad pitt's wedding.
there are some exclusive photos being shown and details of the big day that happened in france on august 23rd. angelina wore this beautiful white gown. on the back it's even more perfect and gorgeous. because hand embroidered into the dress were doodles and drawings that her children had all drawn and messages as well. so the kids helped write the couple's vows. brad apparently even borrowed a tie from one of the sons because he forgot his own. so he borrowed something. something borrowed, something new, right? pax apparently baked the cake. >> wow. that impresses me more than anything. >> wow. >> it was a very small wedding. like 20 people? >> it was a family event. >> did the 20 include the six kids, i wonder. >> well, they participated. but i said earlier what i like about this couple, you don't see them with an entourage. their posse consists of their children. he's got george clooney and matt damon are his close friends, but
they are their unit. which is so sweet in many ways. so probably included the kids, the 20. >> i loved the drawings. we all have framed finger painting of our children and nieces and nephews. it may be so special to us and not anybody else. >> this could start a trend of people including stuff that's important to the children or family and friends within the wedding gown. what a great idea. i'm surprised nobody's done that before. >> it is fantastic. >> i was looking for a new place recent aand i'm going into an apartment where there's kids and you see the collages on the door. it is the ever-continuing challenge of what to do with all of your doodling and all of the little things the kids give you. i think it's adorable. >> put it on the wedding dress. >> so you guys can show up with your suits all -- >> inner lined. yeah. >> what's so sweet is they have said in the past they would get married because their kids wanted it. so it's clear that it was the
kids who wanted to be part of this. >> we all know it's all about our kids. let's show you what we've got going on as far as our weather is concerned. we are looking at some strong storms that have been firing up from cleveland all the way into missouri, parts of arkansas on into central oklahoma. this is part of a frontal system pushing to the south. as it does, we are looking for the risk of strong storms moving into central new york, much of pennsylvania, parts of ohio, on into kentucky. some of these may have damaging winds. a lot of rain with it. and we've got heat to talk about. first day of school for a lot of kids. and look at this in the southeast it's going to feel like 97 in atlanta. charlotte's going to feel like a hundred. here in the northeast as well, boston it's going to feel like 94. 96 in new york city. 101 in richmond. hot and humid today. less humid tomorrow. then that humidity gets back here thursday night into that's what's going on aroun

discovered cigarettes, drugs, alcohol, music, and women really early. just stayed on that track. it's a lot of fun. it's fun to play a character like that. a guy who's got no boundaries. but essentially is a good hearted person. just eats and drinks and romances women. >> anything like your real life? >> my real life? no. i'm happy married. >> nice. >> he's a career indulger. >> yes. he has indulges in multiple vocations. we saw you playing drums in that scene there. any drums in your background? did you know how to play coming in? >> not really. my friend breckin taught me when we were 17, but i didn't practice. when i took this movie i had a coach. this guy that was in the movie taught me to play the songs i needed to play. i focused on playing the songs.
>> you took this -- identical twins who were separated at birth. you said it's got a positive message to it. >> it's a story about nature versus nurture. it's these twins that are separated and raised by different parents. and this one boy, his parents are a preacher. they believe this kid is a gift that was given to them. so they raise it as they believe it's supposed to be raised. and the boy has different instinc instincts. it's about what people tell you you're supposed to be versus what you feel in your heart. that's what i like about it. >> great message. >> one thing people may not know about you and i use this term as a lovable one. you're a space geek. and you got to do a panel at comic-con with buzz aldrin? >> i did. it was awesome. i'm a space enthusiast. i think it's a mistake that we culturally stop doing things like televising launches. because i think that stunts the awareness in a young generation. when i was young i saw ships going up all the time.

the cleveland clinic. welcome to you both. kristen, let me start with you. it may be possible to retrain your brain to stop liking junk food? first thing to point out, this is a very small study. what's the take-away on this? >> there were two groups, an intervention group and control group. the intervention group actually had a diet that was lower on the glycemic index, higher in fiber, 40 grams per day and higher in protein. the control group ate the regular diet. both had brain scans and then at six months. >> in the end, dr. sampson, they learned how to eat healthier? >> what happens with the part of the brain, this area shows the brain responded favorably to the low calorie diet, which goes against what we usually think. that the brain sometimes doesn't like this kind of food that's lower in calories. but the brain shows a positive reaction at a six-month time frame to low calories. so you can retrain your brain to sort of have favorable outcomes
towards low calorie diet. >> we have heard from time to time junk food can be addictive like drugs. is that true? >> that is absolutely true. we have seen several studies that look at foods, especially at high in sugar and refined carbohydrates that light up the areas of the brain that make it difficult to get off those foods. this was a fascinating study that showed that behavioral management actually did this. >> so if you can just program your brain at home to like the your brain at home to like the healthy stuff instead of the sweet stuff. >> yeah. eat the right foods. that's the takeaway. >> get onto the next study here. talking about the difference between low carb and low fat diets. researchers took a look at two different groups of 150 people. they gave them different diets. the study didn't necessarily focus on the participants, what they ate, but tell us more about what the results showed when it came to weight loss and cardiovascular risk. >> it showed that individuals in the low carb group actually
faired better in weight loss and reducing weight factors that predicted whether or not you would develop coronary artery disease. >> what's the distinction here between low carb and low fat? >> with the low carb diet, some had each. there was a favorable response in weight loss as well as improvement in overall heart risk. and what they measured was the good cholesterol. an increase when you follow a low carb diet. von overall a healthier heart was the outcome. but with the weight loss, they noticed on average the individual lost 12 pounds at one year versus 4 pounds at the low fat diet. >> so does this give you a license to eat butter, bacon, steak. no? >> no. >> that's not the takeaway. >> balanced diet is the key and exercise. >> everything is moderation. >> everything is moderation. in this particular study as
well, they also did education on avoidance of fats such as transfat and saturated fat that we know does increase heart risk. so focusing on unsaturated fats is the key and balanced diet is always the right way. >> thanks so much. always the right way. >>snack time takes mercy on no one. it can be an unforgiving foe of rational thought. an adversary of better judgement. and when it has it's sights set on you, it isn't about to play nice. but snack time has finally met it's match. sargento cheese snacks a natural source of protein and calcium. wholesome and full of fresh flavor. sargento cheese snacks are the smart way to tame snack time. choose our family's wholesome, natural cheese snacks. sargento taste the real difference. basic moisturization isn't enough. you need healing. the only lotion with healing micro-droplets of vaseline jelly, new vaseline intensive care deeply moisturizes dry skin from the first application
