are at war. >> paris is no longer the same city it is. there are sections that the police refuse to go to, they're petrified. they refuse to do in there. >> reporter: he got a standing ovation when he announced it to the supporters at a rally in south carolina last night. he said it's only temporary and he said it would not apply to muslim americans looking to return home from abroad. natalie? >> okay, thank you, peter. the fbi now says that the couple who carried out the terror attack in san bernardino, california, has been radicalized for quite some time. and just two days before the shooting gunman syed farook spent hours at a southern california shooting range practicing for the massacre that left 14 people and 21 wounded. on earlier visits he was joined by his his wife at the range. last year, farook's coworksers held an active shooting training drill in the same conference room where he and his wife
8:04 am
opened fire last week. now the latest on the disappearance of michael cavallari, the brother of kristin cavallari. he has been missing for 11 days and new information this morning is adding to the mystery. these are the last known images of michael cavallari on november 27, at a convenience store in utah gassing up his car. 12 hours later, the car was found 100 miles away. >> 911, what is your emergency? >> there's a black car that is ran off the road. >> reporter: it was found in a ditch, the motor running, the air bag deployed but no sign of michael. the case is drawing national attention because michael's sister is reality star kristin cavallari married to jay cutler. on instagram, kristin wrote we remain copeful. the week before michael went missing, he had a bizarre run-in with the law in the town of dana
8:05 am
point, california, not far from where he lives. a woman told deputies she and michael had a verbal dispute. and now, several weeks after the incident, he was outside her door with a shotgun. the report says at about the same time that michael notified he had a shotgun and he was going to the city hall. and police intercepted him there. he was arrested for making criminal threats. the police report says michael denied doing anything or saying anything to the woman. he was not formally charged and he was released on bail. authorities say michael's disappearance is being investigated as a missing persons case but at this point nothing is being ruled out. and michael cavallari's laptop and cell phone were found in his abandoned car. police have been examining them for possible clues. a school bus driver is under arrest after a rollover accident monday near boulder, colorado. five of the students on board were injured, two of them seriously.
8:06 am
state police say the bus veered off the right side of the road, then flipped over when the driver tried to maneuver back on to the highway. the driver was charged with suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs. a driver and a passenger are lucky to be alive after a train crash was caught on tape. their car got stuck on the tracks in orlando, florida, when they couldn't move it, they just got out. they got out just as that train plowed right into it. the train operator says he saw the car, but apparently didn't have enough time to stop. a special moment at the vatican this morning as pope francis greeted his predecessor, pope emeritus, benedict xvi. he was elected after benedict stepped down. he marked a special jubilee year for the church this morning. good to see that there. you're up to date. matt? >> natalie, thank you. let's talk about a revolution in cancer treatment now. credited with erasing former
8:07 am
carter's advanced melanoma. he underwent what's known as immunotherapy. dr. natalie azar is here with the five things you need to know about the treatment. good morning to you. start with the most basic. what is immunotherapy? >> in the simplest form it's a kind of cancer therapy that employs your body's own immune system to fight off cancer cells. very different than traditional chemo which tends to wipe out a lot of things including cancer cells this is very directed therapy. >> let's get more specific. it blocks the check points on cells. what does that mean? >> little lesson in your immune system. we have in our bodies t-cells that are natural he supposed to go out and try to kill the cells that aren't good including cancer cells. some cancers like some melanomas are sneaky and they start to put things on the surface that blocks the t-cells so it can't
8:08 am
kill it. what happens with the therapies it blocks that interaction and the t-cell can do the job and kill the cancer cell. >> former president carter had advanced melanoma. what is a good candidate and who is not? also called biologics or bio therapy. >> right. the approval is for advanced stage melanoma and nonsmall cell lung cancer and it also recently just ironically yesterday in the news, there was a phase one trial on multiple mile loma and there are currently 30 different kinds of cancers that are in clinical trials like this. >> when i heard that the former president's cancer was erased, that was highly successful. how successful is it generally? >> it is considered on the highly successful and it depends on the stage of cancer at the time of diagnosis. i know that's in the press, that his cancer is gone.
8:09 am
right now it is undetectable. you know, because of the stage of the cancer that he was diagnosed it is possible that he still is going to have a tumor recurrence and he still is going to be getting continued therapy. but in terms of response rates and early survival rates looks quite promising. >> when you compare this to other forms of therapy, how do the costs compare? >> it's exorbitant for all bio therapies because it's an infusion you have to get every few weeks so there's usually a facility fee involved. but i want to point out, the cost might be $150,000 per year that's not out of pocket for the patients that's also the infusion center. merck, the maker of this drug, does have patience assistance for the indicated cancer it is approved for, most commercial insurances will reimburse a lot if not most of that. >> i would imagine a lot of people are fascinated by this subject. dr. natalie azar, thank you.

8:14 am
receive an e-mail every morning with an image of the snail mail you'll have delivered to your home later on that day. >> why? >> service is free. only available in certain parts of the country and the postal service says it won't be opened. >> you have to sign up apparently. >> i don't understand it. why do you need a picture of a letter you're going to get later in the day? >> i don't understand it. i guess it's because if you're not -- if you're expecting a package you know when it's coming, it's finally here. >> but that's one more thing in your e-mail. i have 70,000 unread e-mails. you have thousands. this adds to the junk. >> yeah. >> i don't like it. >> they are taking a picture of your mail all the time. yeah. >> separately. >> i think u.p.s. already does this by the way. >> tracking. >> that's what you said, i'm sorry. how about this, last week we settled the debate, an important debate, who is better at assembling ikea furniture? >> men. >> women are better at reading

8:18 am
ellen tweeted no word yet on what he's the patron saint of, but my guess is instagram. she had a complicated birth and the name saint is a reflection of the difficult time that she had conceiving and having -- it is. it's a beautiful story. >> we can't make fun of the name. >> right. >> you can still do it. >> but we still love her. she's the queen of instagram. next to gwyneth paltrow and her luxury store here in new york, the scene of a high stakes robbery. police say three men forced their way into the goops pop-up shop on saturday and made off with more than $173,000 worth of merchandise. all of this while other shoppers were in the store. pretty scary. staffers spotted the thieves and call called police. but they got away. no comment from gwyneth paltrow on that one. and to the hottest christmas gift this season, a barbie doll in the likeness of ava duvernay.

back into the 50s. this afternoon, we will see sunshine. we are talking temps in the mid 60s for the south bay. san francisco today going to manage 59. it's chilly at the coastline. storm system arrives by thursday. friday, we clear out. saturday dry day but more rain pushes back into the bay area by sunday night into monday. have a good one. >> and that's your latest weather. matt? >> all right, thank you very much. we're launching a new series this morning called "women of silicon valley." >> and natalie has a look at the push for more diversity in the tech world. >> that's right. guys, it's estimated by the year 2020 there will be 1.4 million engineering jobs available in the u.s. but only 20% are expected to be filled and women will make up less than half of that group. now, with numbers like that it's no surprise that people are starting to demand change.
8:22 am
tracy ciao was a software engineer at pinterest and is a growing voice calling for change in silicon valley. >> this is something that was brewing for a long time. going through school and i had a lot of internships at various tech companies. there weren't that many women in engineering. >> in 2013, the then 26-year-old programmer wrote a blog post that went viral. it was a call to action. asking tech companies to be transparent about the number of women in engineering roles. >> everything we do if we're going to launch a new product or a feature, we launch it. we experiment with everything. everything is entirely numbers driven. so no numbers on women in engineering or diversity at all in our tech companies. >> as she wrote, every company has some way of hiding or muddling the data on women actually in engineering roles. >> yeah. i talked to people at the different companies. oh, yeah, we have lots of women in engineering/other roles that are close to engineering.
8:23 am
oh, that's fine. but let's talk about what the numbers actually are. >> since ciao's post, 250 companies have contributed to the database and while google and facebook and apple have released their own diversity reports, acknowledging the need for change. the number of women holding leadership jobs still hovers around 20%. were you at all worried about the reaction that you might have, even here at pinterest that you wouldn't have the support that you necessarily ended up getting? >> when i brought the draft of my blog post around and i asked people what they thought, everyone was uniformly supportive and signed off immediately. >> tracy's initiative really did push us to be more on top of our game. in terms of hiring in diversity. >> in july, pinterest went on record with their goals and within the next year they hope to hire 30% female and 8% underrepresented ethnic backgrounds into full-time
8:24 am
engineering jobs. do you see pinterest as leading the way in silicon valley in this effort? >> i feel like we're just getting started. i'm proud we're doing this and i'm proud our team is making so much progress. but if we're the leader i think there's something much bigger going on than pinterest that needs to talk about. >> ciao grew up in a family of engineers. she took a computer science course in college and tested out. >> i didn't see others like me. >> she kept going and fell in love with it. >> you see the problem here in silicon valley as twofold. >> there is part of it which is education system and not enough girls who are interested in math and science, but the second part of the problem is actually once you do get to industry, the environment not always as friendly as it can be. >> issues being addressed with organizations geared toward
8:25 am
young girls. immersive adult programs like half wright academy that teach women how to code and #change the ratio and i look like an engineer are part of the chorus for change. >> i'm happy to see there are more people talking about just diversity in tech generally. there are more women who are speaking out about their experiences here. it makes it easier for younger women to look up and see people that they could be like in a few years. >> such an impressive young lady. she's really leading the change in silicon valley for more diversity and hiring. we'll have a lot more from the women behind the movement. we have them on the website at >> by the way, tomorrow we'll catch up with cheryl sandberg. up to 79% off, the perfect present for the host of your next holiday party. steals and deals, smellivision after your local news and weather. thank you. thank you. first christmas gift. nice. i'm ... ==anim== a follow-up -
8:26 am
and an all clear - ==topvo== good tuesday morning. it's 8:26. a follow-up and an all clear for the air france flight that left sfo for paris to land in montreal last night after being diverted for a bomb threat. right now, flight 83 is back in the air on its way to paris. security teams in montreal came on board to search the plane with all 231 passengers still on board. they figured there was no credible threat there. this morning air france released a statement apologize for the delay is saying the priority is to ensure the safety of the passengers. they are scheduled to arrive in paris in 30 minutes, a little bit before 9:00 a.m. our time. let's get a check of the traffic. >> over here, there's a camera over here in the north bay
8:27 am
showing southbound 101. it's a little slow here at the curves and also we see the low clouds and some fog here in the shot as well. as we look at your map, the same thing. we see the fog registering north of the camera shot. and all throughout the north bay, creeping down in toward the east bay and walnut creek. that's the issue. a lighter volume overall for traffic. we do have the bay bridge metering lights and slower drive on the approach. a lighter overall volume to keep things moving. >> thank you very much. that's going to do it for us right now. we will see you in 25 minutes for another update. come on in pop pop.
8:28 am
happy birthday. i just had a heart attack... and now i have a choice. for her. for them. and him. a choice to take brilinta.
8:29 am
a prescription for people who've been hospitalized for a heart attack. i take brilinta with a baby aspirin more than 100 mg. as it affects how well it works. it's such an important thing to do to help protect against another heart attack. brilinta worked better than plavix. and even reduced the chances of dying from another one. don't stop taking brilinta without talking to doctor. since stopping it too soon increases your risk of clots in your stent, heart attack, stroke, and even death. brilinta may cause bruising or bleeding more easily or serious, sometimes fatal bleeding. don't take brilinta if you have bleeding, like stomach ulcers. a history of bleeding in the brain, or severe liver problems. tell your doctor about bleeding, new or unexpected shortness of breath, any planned surgery and all medicines you take. i will take brilinta today. tomorrow. and every day for as long as my doctor tells me. don't miss a day of brilinta.
8:30 am

8:33 am
what they put the three of you together. what is it like to shoot a movie together? >> it's so much fun. i mean, we know each other so well in this way. so while we were all doing stuff our friend who wrote it was putting things on post-its for us to say. then jason would fly them in and we knew another joke was coming. it was like giddy. it was so fun. >> thank you, by the way. i do know what post-its are. i appreciate that. thank you. >> thank you. >> call me in text mail. >> all right. >> by the way, "sisters" from our sister company universal opens december 18. >> thank you. we love it. al has a check of the weather. >> i have done some calculations on my abacus -- >> he will never live this down. >> the weather we've got, let's show you the maps so you can see, we have wet weather in pacific north west. heavy winds.

8:49 am
each year in this country. >> in 2003 a federal law was put in place to protect them, but our investigation with reuters found that most states, 41, ignore it and children are dying as a result. some dedicated and compassionate health professionals in west virginia are trying to change it. here's nbc's chief nbc correspondent cynthia mcfadden. >> katie gooding 26 years old and mother of two may look like the girl next door but she's also the new face of heroin addiction in america. last year six months pregnant and the trying to stay sober she relapsd back into heroin. her baby kennedy was born premature and hooked on drugs. >> i felt like i was a terrible mother for putting her through that. >> born at cabell huntington hospital in west virginia they placed kennedy in a new unit just for babies going through withdrawal. >> 14% of all babies delivered at our hospital in the year 2014
8:50 am
were exposed to drugs. it's an astronomical number. >> reporter: they are the most innocent victims our country's opiate epidemic. it's hard to watch, but for too long we have looked away. >> it can be frustrating because you do everything and they are still uncomfortable. >> reporter: so recently they created lily's place to wean the babies off drugs and help monitor and educate their mothers. they offered katie gooding entry to lily's place if she signed kennedy over to state cut dishes at least temporarily. if she and kennedy successfully completed the program katie would get her daughter back. >> it was hard. it was really hard to deal with. i cried for a long time. >> hi. >> hi. >> reporter: it's a tough love approach that lacey fraser wishes she had gone through four years ago when her daughter jaycee was born. >> sometimes when i wake up in the morning, i think she's way inside me and it takes me a little bit to realize it's my

being enforced. >> we have an epidemic and the system is failing us as every level and it doesn't need to be that way. >> reporter: west virginia is proving that. the west virginia system works. kate sebak on her feet and has regained custody of kennedy who is now a healthy 1-year-old. as for why the federal law is not being enforced, neither the secretary or health and human services or the white house drug czar would agree to an interview. guys, back to you? >> all right. cynthia mcfadden, thank you. hard to watch. >> yeah, very hard. >> but important to watch. >> drawing attention to it. we're back in a moment. this is "today" on nbc.

9:01 am
natal natalie. al had to leave early and john cena with "at last". >> and a young lady that i haven't seen in a while and after i talk to you guys, this is only song i dance to and i'm saving a dance for her. >> love in your life. >> hanks for letting me play it. >> every guy put on alert that this is what you're supposed to do. >> i miss her so. i'm looking forward to this being done and for all the right reasons. >> you won't tell us who the lucky lady is. >> if you don't know, it's my nicole, she's across town and been away from her for too long. >> she's so sweet. >> usually here when you co-host. such a sweet person, perfect match. >> when you do stuff like that the rest of us guys don't have a charges man. it's not good for the average. >> what advice do you have for willie because he's going to leave here soon, too. >> honey, i miss you and here's
9:02 am
a song. >> you can't play your song. >> try "thunderstruck" by ac/dc. >> sabotaging my relationship. there's the other side. >> eta james, ac/dc. one in the same. >> mice. >> we'll talk about your movie in a lot. can't wait to hear more about that. the big headline this morning comes from the political world. republican presidential front-runner donald trump has capped for what he says is a temporary ban on muslims entering the united states. he shared more of his plan monday night at a rally on the uss "yorktown" in the mt. pleasant, south carolina. >> donald j. trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of muslims entering the united states until our countries' representatives can figure out what the hell is going on. [ applause ] >> we have no choice. you're going to have more world
9:03 am
trade centers. it's going to get worse and worse, folks. yes, we have to look at mosques and we have to respect mosques, but, yes, we have to look at mosques. we have no choice. we have to see what's happening because something is happening in there. man, there's anger. >> so his plan as he announced that he was actually reading his statement there and what the plan is to not let muslims in for what he says is a period of time. whatever that means. got a standing ovation inside the hall at that the real on the ship. did cause a lot of backlash from critics and also republicans run against him who now almost universally have come out against this idea. donald trump called into my other job, the other show "morning joe" and my co-host joe scarborough tried to get specifics about the new proposal and donald trump was defiant. >> you should be afraid of the other side, not my side. i want to get our hands around a very difficult situation. >> all right, all right, donald. >> joe, one other thing. >> no, no, donald. >> you get to let us ask
9:04 am
questions. you can't just talk. let us actually ask questions. you're still talking. >> i'm not just talking. >> donald, donald, donald. >> joe, i'm not just talking. >> if you keep talking we will go to break. >> go to break then, joe. all i'm doing -- >> you don't want to heart facts. >> we'll go to break and we'll be right back with more "morning joe." >> did go to break there on "morning joe" and took a brief break, two minutes and in that break we said if you want to answer the questions and let us ask them first and you're invited to come back on. donald to his credit came back on for 45 minutes and answered everything we asked him. we wanted to about this plan. who is he talking about exactly? he said it does not apply to muslim-americans, u.s. citizens would be able to come back into the country. i wanted to know some more specifics though about practically how this would work. how do you keep the borders closed to members of one religion? >> donald, want to go back to what you called temporary shutdown of muslims entering the unit .
9:05 am
ho does it work at border. let's say a man and his family. >> willie. >> what happens at customs? >> there's certainly going to be exceptions made, for instance, sporting events and other things, hopefully this wouldn't take very long, but you know what, by doing this what we really need help from are the muslims that do know what's going on. the neighbors of people that are looking to do harm. they have to call the police. >> donald, i understand that, and you've made that point, but i want to know how it works. religion doesn't appear on 5%port. questioning at a border in europe before they got to the united states? would it happen here in america, how does it work? >> it could happen at the site, happen in many different forms, willie. it would have to be worked out and i don't think it would be for an an extended period of time. >> a customs agent would then ask the person his or her religion? >> that would be probably -- they would say are you a muslim? >> and if they said yes, they
9:06 am
would not be allowed in the country. >> that's correct. >> so that's how he says it would work. other thing i wasn't quite clear on is how long this goes on. he says it's temporary until we figure out what's going on. i don't know what that means exactly or how would you know when the coast is clear for muslims to come into this country. >> i don't think he knows exactly what that means either, how long that period of time would be. >> and it remains to be seen how this impacts his presidential campaign. we know in the past that statements like this, inflammatory have not hurt him, in fact have helped him so we'll see about this time. >> i was going to say it's interesting that he said, you know, we need to rely on muslims to help us, but how do you get that trust and that relationship if you don't embrace them as shawn henry said earlier. we need to make sure that we know who is in our communities and we embrace people all around us and they are the ones who -- they are going tonight eyes and ears and what's going upon in their neighborhood. >> what's interesting for people to note that remark got a standing ovation at that rally
9:07 am
as if to say just because something gets a standing ovation that it is something that deserves this kind of attention it, and what i mean by that is there were segregationists, we know that in this country, people who didn't .. ng to be people who support not something that's just not popular but dick cheney even said in this case not american, not in line with our values, so just because you have some people in a rally who stand up and applaud it. >> right. >> that does not mean that it's in line with the values of this country. >> no, no. >> the only reason i point that out is to say this is appalling and who would ever support this. people who support donald trump do like what he says. >> i'm not speaking of you. in general. >> this is bold and this is brash, i'm with you. i don't know how it works out. the last time we did anything like this is in world war ii, and that was one of the more reprehensible acts by the united states of america. we are the melting pot, except for you. that does not go along with our
9:08 am
down. a trump is being trump. there's no other way to say it. >> hate begets hate. >> and the constitution and what that says, what that document who many of those very people in that real, our american brothers and sisters who were in that real works say they want to protect the constitution and some would even call them like ted cruz constitutionists don't acknowledge that this is completely counter to our constitution. so, i mean, this is a conversation that could go on and on and on and may play a part in "time" magazine's person of the year. tomorrow on the "today" show "time" magazine will announce that individual who for better or worse has really had a major impact on the year's news cycle, again, for better or worse. they put out this short list that we've been talking about on this show and in the original room, and it contains eight finalists. black lives activists, angela merkel, caitlyn johnson, travis
9:09 am
kalanick, the founder of uber and abu bakr al baghdadi and vladimir putin and hassan rouhani the president of iran and i said vladimir putin just based on the news cycle of this year, the role that he has to play, not only in this coalition to defeat isis but role he has to play with negotiations with north korea and china. that doesn't mean he's necessarily all powerful but you cannot ignore the necessity of russia and vladimir putin. if anything to work against isis as he's now supporting bashar al assad. >> and the iran deal. >> and with the iran deal so it is across the board. john, your pick? >> i feel like somebody picking their fantasy. i like the kolinick guy and names from rockefeller up to oppenheimer and to gates and jobs, that when they change the
9:10 am
way we live as human beings, like this app has essentially made owning a car potentially obsolete. you just don't need to do it anymore so that's huge. >> it is. >> and it is getting bigger and bigger and more commonplace and i just any that's being overlooked. elon musk will be on the list next year for the tesla power wall because he's dealing with the way we deal with electricity. >> revolutionary. >> nat mo. >> i did pick trump. you know, for better or worse i think the change that we talk about with these changing the world, i think he's certainly changed the conversation for better or worse in this country and certainly he's pretty much hog all the headlines in this country, too. i think he's been a headline stealer. >> and i think he's been a headline around the country. this news yesterday reverberated all around the world, middle east and europe so i'm with you. i think maybe it's trump. >> interesting to see tomorrow on the "today" show. we're going to reveal. >> all right.

i didn't have to. we started on xarelto®. nice pass. safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. you know xarelto® is the #1 prescribed blood thinner in its class. that's a big win. it is for me. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto®... ...was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®. ♪
