interruptions. funny notes that people posted on their door bells to deter visitors from ringing the doorbell. let's start with this one. doorbell is broken like your face if you ring it. look at this one. this is not a doorbell. it's a button that opens a trap door beneath you. here's another. this doorbell sporadically electrocutes you. final one. ring this doorbell and take home a prize, my scr >> that one is cute. >> i would also disagree. you want your kid to get used to interruptions and things like that. >> is that true? >> i thought for the first week baby came home, everybody go about your business. now i'm, like, be quiet. >> all right. carson, your "pop starts." >> let's do it, guys. >> okay. >> let's begin with vmas. the award show was a huge hit on

spotify and need a wedding singer? who do you call? bruno mars, of course, setting the bar high for wedding music. and sehowing up to celebrate, mark zuckerberg was there and other stars of silicon valley. who wouldn't want bruno mars to perform at their wedding? for more pop stories go, to "today's" facebook page. they are there for you. that's your pop start. >> carson, thank you. i moved over here. we're having a brand new series called cost cutting today. we'll try to help you cut your monthly expenses. on tap this morning, we'll start with student loans. 2016 college students will graduate with an average of $37,000 in student loan debt yet 2.7 billion in free federal student aid goes unclaimed every year. so here with simple strategies to help you tap into that and reduce those monthly payments, let's go to "today's" financial editor, jean chatzky.
student loans is a big piece of business. >> it is. a huge piece of business. kids come out of school with $37,000 in debt. >> you'll walk us through it before and after you borrow. what do we need to know? >> you have to act sooner than last year. the free application for federal student aid is coming out october 1st. "the new york times" is reporting that some schools may move up their aid deadlines. whether they do or not, get on it asap. because some aid once it's gone, it's gone. >> and what else? >> once you know that you are going to be borrowing, you want to go for federal loans first and private loans second and that's just because the interest rates on federal loans are generally lower and once you are going into repayment, there are a lot of programs that can make your life a lot easier. >> if you can borrow all federal, you should. >> absolutely. >> then check out commercial loans. >> if you're going commercial, there are new discounts to be aware of. wells fargo teamed up with amazon, giving half an interest point reduction. discover is giving a 1% rebate on the cost of your loan if you get decent grades.
sally mae is giving you a discount if you pay interest while in school but with private loans you may need a co-signer. >> potentially your parents. >> right. >> your next tip is get help before you borrow. >> if you're not sure and you're listening to this and i don't know what i should be doing, there's a website called nextgenvest.com. it hooks you up with kids who have already been through it as a money mentor. this girl from the university of michigan. it's free. and it's available in 20 states. really nice way to go. >> it's actually better to talk to someone who has been through it as opposed to someone that speaks your financial language, no offense to you. okay. fast forward. now it's after you borrow. >> after you borrow, know what's the cheapest, fastest way for me to pay back this money. gratify is a tool we like. you input your loan information, what you borrowed both federal and private. it tells you whether you should be going with income based repayment, whether you should
refinance, if you decide you're going to refinance your loans, you want to make sure you do your research. there are a lot of options out there. >> okay. finally, you want to make sure that you pick the right job or employer. >> does that mean the one that pays you the most? >> that certainly helps. there are some employers now like pwc and fidelity and common bond that have made student loan repayment an employee benefit. they're helping you pay back your loans. more employers will get into this in the coming years. that's something to look for. also, a quarter of kids in this country work in jobs where they qualify for public loan forgiveness. essentially this means you do this kind of a job for ten years, the rest of your loans will be wiped away. these are only federal loans. you want to make sure that if you're in this, you are registered. >> would it have to be ten consecutive years usually? >> it doesn't. it doesn't. for med students that work in not for profit hospitals, this is an amazing thing.
>> you say don't defer life even if you have that student loan debt. what do you mean? >> make sure you put money into your 401(k) and pay down high interest rate credit card debt. return on your money you get from doing these things rather than rushing to pay off student loans faster is better. >> pay off credit card debt because interest rates are so much higher, right? >> exactly. the 401(k) you get the match. >> pay the commercial loans first. >> highest interest rate first. >> okay. thank you so much. you can find all of jean's advice on today.com and we'll head outside to al. >> thank you so much, savannah. you know, we got our garden on the go. we'll put the fruits of our labor onto the plaza and cook up a fantastic meal for you. it's all coming up. first, your local news and weather. i love this truck! i'm ...

come on, captain. >> my gosh. if i make this, i want to be one of your captain's picks. >> come on! >> come on. >> i came out and i'm prepared. i practiced and you didn't get to practice. >> is this the stanley cup now? >> like the stanley cup we'll tour the ryder cup around the country and take it a lot of places. university of texas has it. i'm taking it to north carolina/georgia game next weekend. a lot of fun. let the fans see the cup before we go win it back. >> that's awesome. good luck to you. we're counting on you. >> thank you very much. september 30th on the golf channel and of course right here on nbc. coming up next, is it worth splurging on high tech beauty products? we'll put them all to the test. first, this is "today" on nbc.
i am extremely proud of jackie, gaby and stephanie. we worked with pg&e to save energy because we wanted to help the school. they would put these signs on the door to let the teacher know you didn't cut off the light. the teachers, they would call us the energy patrol. so they would be like, here they come, turn off your lights! those three young ladies were teaching the whole school about energy efficiency. we actually saved $50,000. and that's just one school, two semesters, three girls. together, we're building a better california.
>> we're back. it's 8:38. high tech beauty innovations when you hear the word technology might think of computers instead of compacts but these new developments are changing the face of beauty product. how do you know what's worth splurging on? instyle magazine put some products to the test. this is my shopping segment. i have a bag and take the stuff. >> it's worth it. you have to shop. you have to do it. >> you tested and editors found these kind of met the guarantees. >> we asked editors and testers and expert in every feel. a makeup artist, doctor, something like that. >> let's start with this lip stain. >> yes.
this is a new trend. a new formula. it promises to deliver ten hours of bold color. what you do is apply it. you leave it on for ten minutes. and then you peel it off. >> have you peeled it yet? >> i haven't peeled it yet. >> once you peel it off, the color that you get is meant to last for ten hours. >> does it hurt to peel off? >> it's really easy. it feels off and stains a little bit. >> it gives you that pufl colbe color. it's a really bold color. >> i like it. cool. >> it's really nice. >> i'll take one in every color. next mascara. what's innovation here? >> you don't necessarily think you need technology for your mascara but this uses magnetic forces so they are positively charged in the formula that attaches to negative charged
hairs, eyelashes. apply it in one swipe and you don't get clumps and dreaded clumps you get separated, lengthened and beautiful lashes and that works really well. people think it's a great mascara. >> i'm both intrigued and intimidated by this. this is at home filler. >> that sounds extreme. if you are maybe not ready to use a filler, you don't necessarily have to go to a doctor's office for it. this is an option for you. this is not a needle. it's a syringe. it's not going to do anything that you would do with a needle. it's a syringe and two-step process. fill it into lines and you use the film to seal it in. and then you apply it to lines and adds fullness and volume. >> sounds like you should know what you're doing if you're going to use this. >> it's tricky. that's what testers felt. it will help you in between doctor's visits if you get fillers. if you're not comfortable with
it, you need to get used to it. >> i'll try it. it's more expensive i would say. more of an investment. tell me about this dirt toothpaste here. >> you wouldn't think dirt could get you clean but actually this is a green product that's meant to -- organic clay toothbrushing powder. you dip it in powder. it's meant to not kill bacteria that harms enamel when you brush your teeth. there's baking soda in here for stains. cinnamon for that minty feel. none of the bad chemicals. our dentist expert thought that it's fine but you should probably keep going to the dentist to make sure that you're not having bad effects from not having fluoride. >> last but certainly not least, a gorgeous model. what are we showing here?
>> this has three technologies in it. it's microneedling, infrared light therapy, anti-inflammatory and then stimulation through vibration. so you just apply it. you turn it on. you apply it. it goes over your face and wrinkles and it kind of just gives you those three therapies. it's meant to build collagen. your skin gets a tiny wound and it heels to boost that collagen. in studies people said it works and improves the look of brightening and tightening your face. >> can you do it if your pregnant? >> yeah. >> thank you. all of these products are interesting. we appreciate it. if you want more information, go to our website, today.com. coming up next, a great seasonal recipe from our garden on the go. first, this is "today" on nbc.

>> it has so much flavor. i love integrating herbs there. eggplant is an alternative. >> really in abundance right now. easy to grow. when you do your eggplant, do you salt it first? >> i salt the eggplant a little bit and i let it sit. that liquid and bitterness come out and cook it until tender. a fun idea instead of steaks, eggplant or both. >> you could do both. eggplant is a meaty vegetable as far as health is concerned. >> you can get it from that garden on the go. >> these are the same vegetables and herbs that are grown in the white house kitchen garden and we're taking it all over. now, you're going to start to slice up the hanger steak. meantime, our group here, tasting. >> garden on the go, phenomenal. >> i would take salsa on everything. >> you want to make sure that

this morning on "today's take," beyonce's big night. the epic 15-minute performance that brought down the house at vmas and dr. oz will join us and a summer dish you can make tonight. all that and more coming up now. >> announcer: from n news, this is "today's take" with al roker, tamron hall, and billy bush live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. >> welcome to "today" for a monday morning, august 29th, 2016. i'm al alongside tamron. we are missing our pal, billy, who got caught up in the chaos at l.a.x. after reports of a
shooter turned out to be false. we can't have him here. this is the best way to have billy bush. where you put him in a tv monitor. >> it's virtual billy. >> that's right. >> just bring him over. >> it's like we can move you anywhere we want. do you feel dizzy from the movement? >> i smell a lot better this way too. it's been a long night, folks. >> what happened? tell us about it. >> so i'm at l.a.x. last night. i went to take the redeye last night. i get to the airport. i think this is one of those things where we've seen for a lot of people you see it on tv, you see it in the news, and you think this will never happen to me. i won't be caught up in this. all of a sudden i'm in terminal 4 american airlines. i was watching espn. had time for a fast beer at that bar right there. i sat down. all of a sudden i paid and i'm walking out and a stampede of people are running in shear
terror at me. a bomb is going to go off. something is happening. didn't immediately think gunshots. i'm asking everybody and this woman says someone has a gun. i turned around. i ran right back into that restaurant. i went straight back into their kitchen. there's a woman holding her baby. there's people in tears. shear panic. and then they come over the overhead and we find out that -- we found out way later that there was not actually a shooter. they had a guy dressed as zoro that they apprehended but he was just a wacky guy. >> lester holt was there as well. he was landing. >> how long did this go on, billy? >> it went on for hours. they had to take everybody, every passenger had to be emptied out of the terminals and then they had to go through tsa screening again. at that point i said it doesn't matter. i'll never make it to the show on time. i got back in a cab and hopped
in bed with my wife and my little one who has her first day of school today. >> worked out anyway. >> i understand you got a tattoo. >> i did. this is controversial parenting here. i'll have to -- tamron you told me that -- >> i have tattoos. yeah. >> my daughter, josie, turned 18 on friday. why i came back to l.a. she said, look, i want to get a tattoo. what kind? she said right on the wrist a little cross. the beautiful part, you, me and mom, that's the little cross. very small. this is the most painful process in the world. >> that's one of the most -- that wrist area and your ankle are two of the roughest spots that you can get as well. you have some other ones but those are on the list. so the whole crew got it. >> there it is.
>> very nice. >> a family bond. i like it. >> now the other ones, we have a 15 year old and 11 year old and when they're 18, they can decide if they want to join us. >> what if your 15 year old says i want a body piercing. let's all get a body piercing. when she turns 18. >> when she turns -- i guess there's nothing i can do. i won't pay for it. >> you have to do it. >> what's the difference between a tattoo and body piercing? i'm just saying. >> has to be within your own comfort zone. i'm comfortable as a body piercing as of yet. that may change. >> i can see you with a belly button thing. >> i cannot see that nor do we -- >> you won't actually lay eyes on it. tamron, u.s. open, you played tennis with andy murray. i'm jealous about that. did you beat him? >> of course i did.
you know me. you were out at adventure land with me. >> it was not on a tennis court. >> andy murray is the sweetest guy. i was out friday. they work hard to bring tennis to girls. the numbers are still very low when it comes to girls being exposed to tennis programs. they invited me out. why are you laughing, billy? >> the outfit is on point. >> our wardrobe department -- it had a nike logo. so they covered it "today" show logo because we can't endorse. andy was so sweet. he brought out two kids. we played partners. so my partner, this really sweet boy. i turned to him and said are you excited that i'm your partner? he froze. no. look of fear like why did i get
you and not andy murray? i tried my best. i can at least say that. >> that's all that matters. >> as two dads, i would think that certainly that's the advice you give the girls, right? try your best. >> do your best. that's why we're so excited about the success of the roker burger. shake shack and i did our best. we did our best. and in fact, all across the country the roker burger sold out. they ran out of roker burgers. >> i single handedly shut down the one in battery park. i shutdown one location. >> we're thrilled. it helped no kid hungry, which is great charity that helps fight childhood hunger. the folks at shake shack could not have been nicer and folks tweeting that they ran out were very understanding and some folks said they drove 25 miles to get their roker burger and they couldn't get it. >> any chance this can come back for a limited time?
it's like the mcrib. if the demand is high, can't we do that? >> that's a good idea. >> this is funny i'm looking back at you, without your man spread i feel like i'm half you. >> very much alive but in hiding. >> it's much more comfortable here. >> i got to tell you, i like waist up. >> i think we send top half of you back here and leave bottom half back in l.a. >> you're like that character from the '80s. you're all head. >> leave the man spread at home. the genius of the roker burger often times is a terrible tossup for me whether i want to have pulled barbecue or if i want to have a burger. the fact that you combined the two for an ingenious creation for a fabulous cause means it must come back. i searched in the airport for it. i'm one of the people that did not get a roker burger. it needs to come back. >> some folks have said it's like a backyard barbecue in your
mouth. you have the grill. you have the hamburger. barbecue. pulled pork. everything. cheese. >> the cheese was amazing. but bottom line is, billy, you're right we need to campaign. shake shack has been so wonderful and thrilled to team up with you. >> we'll find out how many we sold. >> we had one serious night last night, guys, at the vmas. i know we all watched. lots to talk about coming up from beyonce's stunning ensem e ensemble. i wonder if tamron will agree about if britney spears delivered. >> what about dr. oz? we have dr. oz. >> dr. oz will be making a house call. >> he's going to take our waist see me. see me. don't stare at me. see me. see me. see me to know that psoriasis is just something that i have. i'm not contagious.

her manager, we would be talking today about how did this happen to me? how did you let me follow beyonce? 16 minutes of "lemonade." >> the beef between beyonce and rihanna over them getting in the elevator and whatever happened there, rihanna had four performances that were fantastic but at the end of the day beyonce stole the night from absolutely everybody. and sang every word of it sweating, performing, making giant statements with the female gender symbol at the end. >> after she performed, i actually thought the show was over. and then i was, like, no, address britney. >> how about my man drake presenting -- >> proposing. >> either presenting or proposing to rihanna.

91,000 acres of land. it started because of an illegal campfire left burning in state park. there's been one death during a fire. a bulldozer operator who died when his vehicle rolled over. firefighters hope they will have this at full containment by september. cal fire says 12,000 firefighters are battling 13 large fires across the state. we have a look at weather and traffic coming up after the break.
welcome back, 9:28. waiting for the skies to clear in san jose. 61 degrees ap a high that should get closer to 80. mid-60s staying cool around san francisco. mostly upper 70s from mill valley and napa. highs in the mid-80s around the trivalley. one thing to watch towards tonight and tomorrow, this system combining with mid-level moisture may top the north bay and a stray shower or two.
breezy around san francisco. >> we're looking for stray chances. we're also looking for stray traffic. we have a crash and slowing in haywa hayward. but look farther down here. this is the big concern southbound 88 through fremont. very slow past mission and down towards 237. just got word all lanes have cleared on the southbound side. look at the live camera we have and you still see the slow drive jammed up. back to you. >> that's a mess. we'll have more local news for you in just a half hour. you have a great morning.

your blood pressure checked? >> i've not been to the doctor in two years. okay. let's not judge. i'm going to be honest. i have insurance of course. i'm one of those people i made a point of going to get my annual female exam. i've not been to the doctor in two years. i know, i know, i know. >> easy to get at home these devices. simple. here's why it's so important. number one cause of ageing is your blood pressure. this is what your artery looks like. i want you to pretend for example that you have a little diabetes, which is like glass shards. scrape that. you start to actually dig gashes in there. you see that hole you made there. this is what happens. once you get cracks in there, the body gets upset and blood pressure is a hammer. take this hammer if you don't mind. hit it right about there. >> that was a good hit.
if you hit it here, i guess not. i had this fixed up. there it is. there. it's really bad blood pressure. once you have a hole in your artery, you have to fix it. what's the best way to fix a hole? you use plaster. unfortunately the body's plaster is something called cholesterol. you take cholesterol and slather this on there and you get not appealing material and over time it begins to look like plaque. >> that's lining your blood vessel. >> we need to cut out salt. >> pressure, stress, number one problem we find in our surveys is probably the biggest driver. being short-term stressful environment like doing the show here or exercising raises your blood pressure but long-term stress you can't get away from it doesn't cause this plaque buildup. don't want that inside of you. >> waist line and why is waist measurement so important? >> the other way of dropping your blood pressure is to drop
your waist. hold on. there's a lot of stuff including squeezing of your kidneys which is responsible for regulating your blood pressure. your body will raise the blood pressure. men don't weigh themselves and women weigh too much. your waist size is the most accurate technique. everyone at home listen carefully. men over the age of 40, we take the belt and put it down there. >> still wearing a size 32. >> 28 over here, baby. >> the sweet spot is take a simple measuring tape around your hips. up to your belly button there. suck it in now. you're 27. 27 inches is the number you have to remember. it needs to be less than half your height. just to put numbers on it. for men it should be less than 40 inches. for women less than 35 inches. that's the rule of thumb. easy to follow. it works for kids.
for young women, they get caught up in weight. causing eating issues. use a measuring tape. >> next up -- >> please have a seat. >> the quiz is important here. i'm going to try to figure out whether you have something to worry about with your memory or not. you put five words up there before we went to break. you need to be able to remember those words for at least five to ten minutes. it's been about that long now. so you guys -- stand, if you don't mind. i put a memory quiz here. there's your chalk. write down those five words. do not look at each other's cards. do it yourself. don't lock at what they're writing here. you should be able to remember those for that short period of time and recall them. if you can't get it right, i'll help you out by showing you a list of words which you should be able to recognize. we have face. >> velvet. >> church, daisy, red.
>> you got them right but in the wrong order. >> he has church twice. what does that mean? >> it means i'm a skipping record. >> if you can put up the list for everybody, the real issue is you should remember five. four is close. but if you can't pick them out of that list, that's behind al right now, that's a separate issue. don't panic. if you can't pick it up, observe yourself over the day. do you remember phone numbers anymore? we have smartphones. don't remember numbers anymore. exercise your brain a little bit. if you don't think it's normal, see somebody. we can do things to help you. it works. >> thank you, dr. oz. >> two years is a long time. >> i'm going to correct it. you can see "dr. oz show" this fall september 12th. check your local listings. >> you know what else keeps you healthy? fresh tomatoes from the garden. our good friend chef scott is
