7:04 am
city of boston. the only silver lining is that it's on the weekend. so, hopefully folks can hunker down. >> february is not fooling around. >> here we go again. thank you so much. breaking overnight a major offensive launched by isis, the terror group carrying out raids and attacks in iraq west of ramadi. and near a u.s. base there. this morning the u.s.-led coalition is striking back. nbc's andrea mitchell is in washington with the developments. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. the u.s. is hitting isis with more air strikes order as the terror group advances toward the iraqi base used by u.s. military visors. this is the parents of americans held by isis saying that the u.s. is not doing enough to find their children including paying ransom if needed. the last known american hostage in steeria award winning journalist austin tyes. a lawsuit, a former marine
7:05 am
kidnapped 2 1/2 years ago. officials and his parents believe not held by isis. parents want the administration to do more to find him. >> what we really want our government to do is to engage in a dialogue with the syrian government. you know, how can we have this fantastic state department and global diplomacy if if we're not speaking? >> there needs to be someone made accountable directly for the safe return of hostages. we think someone reporting directly to the president. >> reporter: there has been no ransom demand from austin's captors but his parents' frustration echoes other hostage families. after diane and john foley's son james was beheaded they said the government said it would be illegal to pay ransom. president obama told buzzfeed he will not change that policy. >> what we don't want to do is make other american citizens
7:06 am
riper targets for the actions of organizations like this. >> reporter: the white house refused a prisoner trade for kayla mueller. her parents wanted the president to trade a convicted terrorist known as lady al qaeda for their daughter. the white house wouldn't. mueller's boyfriend even went back into syria to try to rescue her but failed. now he has posted a picture of her on his face book page writing i'm sorry i didn't hold onto you with so much strength even god couldn't take you away. the president ordered a review of the policy but paying ransom would encourage more hostage taking, a tough message for the grieving families. >> absolutely. thank you so much. >> we have new developments on a story we've been following for a couple years now. the u.s. army is now approving hormone therapy, treatment for chelsea manning. the former intelligence analyst serving a 35-year sentence for sending classified documents to the wikileaks website.
7:07 am
jim miklaszewski is at the pentagon. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. this is a huge breakthrough, bigger step for the army. there were few in the pentagon or military who thought they'd ever see this day when the army would not only permit but pay for treatment for bradley manning's transition. when sentenced to 35 years in prison for leaking thousands of secret documents to wikileaks, he was private first class bradley manning. the very next morning in a statement read by savannah here on "today" manning dropped a bombshell. >> i want everyone to know the real me. i am chelsea man, i am a female. >> reporter: manning's lawyer revealed chelsea wanted to begin hormone therapy immediately. >> i think the ultimate goal is to be comfortable in her skin and be the person she never had an opportunity to be. >> reporter: for a year and a half army officials at fort leavenworth prison denied chelsea the hormone therapy needed to transition to a woman.
7:08 am
she sued the federal government and last week the commander approved the treatment. as an army private in iraq manning passed 700,000 u.s. secrets to wikileaks including gun camera video of a u.s. helicopter attack in baghdad that killed innocent civilians. but even then, manning had a secret of his own, seen here on leave in a woman's wig and lipstick, manning was dealing with gender identity disorder. manning could be pardoned from leavenworth in six years, her hormone therapy could begin any day. as far as we know chelsea manning is not seeking sex reassignment surgery. and to be clear here, the army didn't do this willingly, they were pretty much forced into it. and at the same time, there is slow but growing pressure on the military and pentagon to allow transgenders to openly serve in the military. nobody thinks that's going to happen any time soon. >> jim, thank you very much.
7:09 am
>> anger is mounting over another deadly police-involved shooting, this the in washington state. the suspect allegedly was hurling rocks at cars and officers and video of the incident apparently shows the man running away as he was then shot and killed. hallie jackson has this story. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. we've learned the fbi is now monitoring the situation here where overnight a few more signs were placed that the memorial at the site of the shooting, all of this has sparked angry protests already with more on the way. first, gun shots, then the chase caught on camera by a witness who posted the video on line. you can see pasco police running after a man who raises his arms above his head, then turned around. that's when three officers opened fire a second time, killing antonio. >> anybody that downloads this on youtube they will see it, that it wasn't justified.
7:10 am
>> reporter: but police point to the moments before the video begin, when they say montez was throwing rocks at cars, hitting two officers and ignoring commands to surrender even after being tasered. the chief is promising a full investigation. >> we're here trying to make sure we get the right information. >> reporter: his officers are now meeting with protesters to help them prepare for the hundreds of people expected saturday. the second demonstration in pasco since tuesday's shooting which the state aclu calls disturbing. >> we have a situation here in this little town that doesn't justify a scene like that. you don't have to go as far as they did. >> reporter: it's the fourth deadly officer-involved shooting in six months in this small farming town, where montez was arrested last year for try to grab a police man's gun. even with this video the investigation into the officers' use of force may not be easy.
7:11 am
>> when i look at a flat one dimensional picture, i am acutely aware that reality may differ. >> reporter: still a lot of questions about this shooting, though. the questions about the victim's mental state when it happened. meanwhile, nbc news learned the coroner's office may open a separate investigation similar to calling up a jury to look at the facts of this case. matt, savannah. >> natalie has the latest on the shooting in north carolina. >> now the fbi is joining in the investigation and the murders of three young muslims killed allegedly by a neighbor in chapel hill, north carolina. craig steven hicks a self described gun-toting atheist is facing first-degree murder charges. police say tuesday's killings may have been over a parking dispute but they are also investigating what religious or ethnic hatred motivated hicks in any way. >> u.s. senate has approved president obama's pick to lead the pentagon.

7:13 am
called him the finest media reporter of his generation. david carr was 58. well known to all of us here at "today." we are sending condolences to his family. >> incredible video to show you of the moment a snowmobiler in wyoming is buried by an avalanche. this happened a week ago. you can see the man riding up the side of the mountain when a wave of snow comes crashing down on top of him. initially his friends sped off on the snowmobiles to get out of harm aels way, then they quickly turned up the mountain to go back to save him. they found the rider with only as you see, the top of hifls head sticking out of the snow and franltically able to dig him out. thankfully, he is okay and thanks to the heroics of his snowmobiling friends. >> and more proof this morning love this, of the unbreakable bond between a dog and its owner. ible cedar rapids, iowa, a schnauzer walks nearly 20 blocks on her own right into a local
7:14 am
hospital lobby. it happened to be where her owner nancy frank was recovering from surgery. eventually hospital workers tracked down nancy's husband at home. cissy was able to visit nancy for a while in-er room before going back home. that is just the sweetest story. >> amazing. >> really is. >> thank you, natalie. do we all feel warm and futzy. >> need to we'll farm and fuzzy with what's going on. a quick look at our map. this is a calm before the storm. not much going on on the map. temperatures nice and warm out through the southwest in southern california, really in florida the only warm spot in southern florida, miami, a temperature of 76. let's get to your local forecast in the next 30 seconds. and set out on their own. they believed in more, than the assembly line. they believed driving was a holy endeavor. a hundred years later,

10:32 am
make me make you now care about this day. >> he doesn't have to care about it. >> moving on. we have another lovely lady. >> hi i'm jackie from yonkers. my question would be how do you spice things up when we have two blending families. total of five kids in the house. what are some ideas on how to spice things up without making it seem like a lot of work? >> a lot of people have that feeling. they want to spice it up in the bedroom and there are so many kids wandering around. >> she said without it being a lot of work. like -- i don't like -- people should never feel entitled to excitement in a relationship. like that's just a right. i'm in a relationship so i'm going to make it happen. nobody is entitled. you have to invest and create that. send them to the movies and have time with them. invest in them in the same way you did during the romantic period of your relationship. >> there are things she can do to make herself feel sexy.

your integrity and what's in the relationship. >> i think people need to get back being a team. any time you are focused on being right and people don't team up and say how can we help each other. there is a great quote, you can be right or you can be happy. sometimes it is less focus on being right and more focus on being happy as a team with your partner. >> you see francesca's earrings? by the way, your earrings are hearts. do you see them? they're little hearts. how cute are you? >> thanks everybody. if you have a relationship question for the other view log on to klg and hoda.com and click on the connect tab. >> speaking of connecting have you ever thought you could read your dog's mind? or that it could read yours? we have proof of that. plus working out without feeling like you are working out. >> fun, fitness. right after this. >> come on, girls. . to severe plaque psoriasis-... the frustration...covering up. so i talked with my doctor. he prescribed enbrel.
10:35 am
enbrel is clinically proven to provide clearer skin. many people saw 75% clearance in 3 months. and enbrel helped keep skin clearer at 6 months. enbrel may lower your ability to fight infections. serious, sometimes fatal events including infections, tuberculosis,lymphoma, other cancers, nervous system and blood disorders, and allergic reactions have occurred. before starting enbrel, your doctor should test you for tuberculosis and discuss whether you've been to a region where certain fungal infections are common. you should not start enbrel if you have an infection like the flu. tell your doctor if you're prone to infections, have cuts or sores, have had hepatitis b, have been treated for heart failure, or if you have symptoms such as persistent fever, bruising bleeding, or paleness. finally, clearer skin for more than a few days, weeks or months. enbrel works for me. ask your dermatologist if you can have clearer skin with enbrel

if you've ever been a dog owner, like we are, then you know or at least you suspected, that dogs can tell how you're feeling just by looking at you. >> now there may be proof. >> there is proof! >> a study released on thursday found that dogs do in fact have the ability to read emotion and expressions on human faces. >> happy. happy. >> yes. here to tell us what that means for you and your pet, veterinarian heather lenzer and david donnenfeld.
10:49 am
>> i brought pablo along with me who is my own dog. he is a rescue border collie. then i have little zipper here. she's a friend of mine. she lives with five kids. >> wow. so dogs see joy, sadness and all of those things in our faces? >> as pet owners i think we can all agree that yes, we do. there was a really neat study where dogs were trained to look at pictures of people and they were designed to pick out happy and angry. but they were just given half the face. so they were given the eyes or the mouth. and they were able to pick out -- like in this video -- watch this dog. he's been trained to pick out happy faces. but look at only half of the face. and he can tell between happy and angry people. >> that's without the sound of a voice. >> absolutely. there's been some studies showing that dogs have a special place in their brain that actually detects emotion. we knew that. we didn't know they could detect these really subtle clues in our
10:50 am
faces. >> i've been involved at times in my life in really terrible things. they will come up and snuggle and not leave you and just burrow. >> they absolutely do. definitely it happens when we're stressed but people also suffer from ptsd where they will go into a flashback. some of these dogs need to be specially trained to kind of get them out of that flashback. >> tell us about the training. knowing that they have this ability, how does that help us when it comes to training our dogs? >> dog training got turned on its head not that long ago where suddenly everyone went against this whole idea of reinforcement being on the negative side. i want to get my dog to stop doing this so i'm going to punish it so it doesn't. dogs are reward seekingance. they're constantly looking after a good times. they even have something called a left side bias. they study the left side of our face. that's how they read our emotions. if you think about it going all the way back to evolution, if they were looking for a piece of food scrap food an angry
10:51 am
looking caveman isn't going to be as likely to give up his food as someone who's a little more welcoming. in dog training terms, that means positive reinforcement is the way to go. you want to play marco polo hot, hot, hot, warm. constantly guide them toward the reward. that's what they're wired to do. they're looking for a good time. >> and one of the other things i really liked about that study is the subtleties again of picking up just half the face. i think dogs are also designed to pick up other subtle medical issues. like we heard about service dogs that can pick up high blood sugar and low blood sugar. that they can pick up seizures. then i also heard about some dogs that -- >> he's picking up something right now. >> they actually can pick up when someone's starting to scratch, say ocd, the dog will pick up their brush, bring it to the person who is having that ocd episode and they'll stop it. >> remember with the young kids with autism?
10:52 am
it just showed how these kids were opening up. it is amazing what dogs can read in us. >> well you guys thank you very very much. >> we really appreciate it. >> i'm not going to try to bluff my dog at the card table anymore. >> he's on to you, baby. we'll be right back with a valentine's surprise you won't want to miss. >> but first, this is "today" on nbc.
