isis. saudi arabia and iran both middle east power housz would be to cooperate to need to stop the war in syria and, therefore, stop isis. but in the middle east now there seems more will to squabble with each other than to fight against a common enemy. iran's president today called the execution of the shiite cleric a crime. the white house would like nothing more than to put this crisis behind the two countries and get all sides focused on fighting isis. but that's not happening. richard engel, nbc news, istanbul. >> michelle: back here at home. i'm sure if you walked outside early enough you probably saw it. what a sight. soggy and misty conditions blanketing las vegas. the second wave in this front that we've been telling you about that's coming our way. and this morning you couldn't even see the top of the stratosphere. for more on that we bring in kelly curran. it fell like sleepy hollow--esque.

their male counterparts were at least two times more likely to suffer from major depression and more than four times more likely to suffer from anxiety. so experts say some of the burden from these disparities could be relieved by putting certain policies into place such as paid parental leave, affordable child care and flexible work schedules. mark zuckerberg has issued a new year's challenge. you might say he is stepping up his game. the facebook founder challenging himself and others to run 365 miles in 2016. he says that might sound like a lot but really it's just one mile a day. last year the 31-year-old zuckerberg, well his challenge was to read one book every other week in 2015. that might be easy for him because he is mark zuckerberg. he is a gazillionaire and probably has the time. but for those who don't have time keeping resolutions is tough. a lot people try to quit smoking

she referred to the person on her post as a junkie and complained that the staff didn't care about her incorrect bill. the owner of the restaurant had a harsh response. saying in part the so-called junkys who an elderly woman who suffered a heart attack and she didn't understand why a human life took priority over her bill. the elderly woman who suffered that heart attack survived and is recovering at a hospital. but that woman is not recovering from the backlash she is getting online. >> michelle: i saw this on facebook. i read about this when it was trending when it first started. and the woman actually removed her facebook page because she was receiving so much backlash. she was mad because they weren't paying attention to her bill when a woman on the table next to her was having a heart attack and she was mad because they were tending to the woman and not her bill. >> jeff: pretty bad. >> michelle: yes. all right actress ann hathaway has confirmed that she is prego.
it. she sort of out smarted or i guess you could say out did the paparazzi. didn't you hear the paparazzi was there trying to take pictures of her. she posted this one. >> jeff: she posted that picture. >> michelle: on her instagram and said i got it there first. there she is looking adorable in a swimsuit. looking fabulous. and you can see there's an obvious baby bump. we're trying to figure out how far along she is. maybe seven months? five? i said five earlier and somebody said no way. let's say five to seven. we're guessing. she looks fabulous. that image has racked up more than 270,000 likes and thousands of comments. here's some of the other topics people are talking about online right now. oh johnny. reports that quarterback johnny manziel wore a mustache and wig to hide his identity while partying in vegas this weekend. people said they saw him but then he posted on facebook and tagged himself in ohio. well i just want people to know i could tag myself in ohio if i wanted to. >> jeff: you can pull a file picture and say it was any time. >> michelle: exactly. does that doesn't do much.

"star wars" film in 1977. that is topping fandango.com survey's of this year's most anticipated movies. it's expect to be released december 16th this year. then yo have the other one being released to year after, 2017. that's the sequel to the one just released. i know you are confused. it's just, you know, disney acquired this and they're just going crazy with it. and trying to rake in the profits. and they are. >> michelle: yeah. well, you know, the one that just was released made over a billion dollars and hasn't even been released in china yet. i don't know if you are aware of this, kelly, but china apparently is the second biggest viewing market when it comes to movies and films. so without that they've already set a world record. so it's going to be out of the
>> kelly: it's going be a record that will be hard to break. that's for sure. it is definitely confusing because all he movies are out of order. you need somebody to explain what order i'm supposed to watch them right. we're taking a look the rain showers starting to make their way that the area. this is round two. we had round one yesterday. now starting to see the showers approaching the nevada border just outside of pahrump and primm. we're already got showers moving in to laughlin, bullhead city. these showers all moving east northeast and look what's back behind this. a lot more. most of the state of california seeing rain and/or snow right now. los angeles, that's what's heading our way. we're going to see light showers to get things startd. they're going pick up more as we get later into the afternoon. especially into the evening hours. because of this system, we have a winter storm warning in effect. the areas shaded in pink that includes the sheep mountains and the spring mountains. this goes through 4:00 tomorrow morning as we're looking at two to three inches of snow above 5500 feet. above 8,000 feet, six to 12 inches of the white stuff. winter weather advisories for lincoln and nye counties. looking at about three to eight inches of snow. definitely want to be careful on area roadways. if you can avoid travel through
hours that's probably best. wait until it gets cleaned up and settled before heading on those highways. as far as what we're expecting for the rest of the day, again, here's this wave, this round two. it's going to make its way through. that will end though as we get into the early morning hours of tomorrow. we're going to get a little bit of a break tomorrow morning maybe even a little bit of breaks in the clouds as well. but will be short lived. round three for wednesday afternoon. that will continue throughout the night on wednesday. we're going see lingering showers and mountain snow into thursday with maybe even a few showers lingering into friday is a well. here is a live look at aliante camera. very overcast conditions. the showers starting to move their way in right now. temperature wise sandy valley right now at 55 degrees. laughlin 54. boulder city 49 degrees for a current temperature. highs today, not much different. mesquite 53. pahrump 51.

we're there. >> michelle: that's where i first saw you. i want to start with talking about what creative grooming is. i know some people look down and frown upon it. there's misconceptions. >> whenever we deal with creative grooming my first thing that i do is i do a full evaluation. do they mind having their feet messed with? do they mind having their ears played with? if they don't mind there is no reason not to try creative grooming. there is nothing that distinguishes it different from regular grooming. same way we're brushing we're painting on color. >> michelle: is that dye? is it safe? >> oh yeah. completely tested. >> michelle: you do all kinds of stuff. one of your dogs has a mullet. >> he has a mullet. a bright blonde mullet. >> jeff: she even has her nails done. >> absolutely.
you can get your dog's nails done. >> michelle: you also do, you know, the original, breed standard grooming. >> it's very important that every day leave looking like a show dog. i keep up on the recent trends. >> michelle: really small cute place. >> we're on norman rockwell lane in northwest las vegas. the far northwest. >> michelle: if you are familiar with the mexican food, a great strount there, they are in the same center. you can do this but also do basic grooming. >> regular standard grooming. we focus on making it a positive experience for every pet every time. >> michelle: you told me you do not use those drying machines. >> no. good lord no. we use a handheld blow dryer. i find not only is it safer it's also you get a much better result. the dogs look prettier and fluffier. >> jeff: what a beautiful dog. great meeting you. can you shake? can you shake. >> bonsai paw. >> jeff: bonsai paw. there you go.

make sure you let someone know where you are going and when you are expected to be there. >> michelle: that way if you looking for you. >> jeff: let's hope it doesn't come to that. an atlanta teacher showing off his student's moves in a video that's gone viral. take a look. [music] that is ron clark and kids doing a version of the whip, the rock. i know the nae nae. the rock. >> michelle: i don't know what that is. >> jeff: he is doing good. >> michelle: they're really good. he's obviously the focal point. and he gets it done. >> jeff: yeah. >> kelly: tell you my favorite part. right here. this part. >> jeff: with the head. >> kelly: yes that's my favorite part all day long. >> jeff: take a look at this. clean up efforts underway along
