9:18 am
and to be able to work, i was looking forward to it. >> we're seeing some clips of it right now 'cause we're going to introduce to your character as the boyfriend at the time. so tell us more about your character in the film. >> my character, dr. ryan, we kind of joked, didn't have a last name. but he's on the perfect path. he's going to take over his father's medical practice of the he's got the perfect girl. going to propose. things might change his course. you get to see him react to the fact that his girlfriend may have been with another guy. it was interesting. it's fun to play a character who doesn't get the girl and then to see how he reacts and how he makes choices for his life going forward. >> kind of how love works. after you're already in a relationship and kind of wondering what if.
9:19 am
looking in a little bit on this one. >> yeah. it's funny. we wanted to make it very hard for trace, for her character to make this choice between the two because her character is so great that she would never be with a bad guy to begin with. and for my character, it reay comes down do you really want to be with someone who doesn't want to be with you? how do you react? how do you respect their choice for ha they want in their life? those are all sort of themes i wanted to explore through this character. >> tell us about your co-stars. who else is in the film with you? >> theresa palmer, she's fantastic. electric. she jumps right off the screen. ben is fantastic. very talented. very different as far as -- we play very different characters, who both probably don't understand why trace would be with either of them. and then ross, our director, was a very big influence. he really helped create an environment where we could really support each other.

9:24 am
within the state as nevada tries to diversify, the realization is you need a skilled work force in order to do that, which is where wgu nevada comes into play. >> you are also here to talk about the scholarships that are available. >> that's right. last legislative session, the legislature passed an initiative designed to get more teachers into the profession and the state board of nevada, education board, just awarded wgu nevada $240,000 in scholarship funding. so we have 20 scholarships designed for individuals who have a bachelor or masters degree, not in the education field. these are individuals who want to change their career and get into the classroom. so this is an alternative route to license sure. this is an accelerated pathway classroom as soon as possible, given the teacher shortage that we have here. >> absolutely. a lot of movement as far as the teacher are concerned.
9:25 am
i'm not great at math. so could you help m legislative -- >> it covers your full ride at wgu? fantastic six instboard of education awarded these dollars to. so wgu nevada is working with five other institutions throughout scholarship? >> very easy process. that stand to licenseure. in order to be eligible, oneedto be officially admitted to wgu nevada. >> what's an alternate route. >> an alternate route to license
9:26 am
entire four years just for teaching. you have that degree and this kind of attaches to that degree? >> that's right. there are several ways to get into the classroom. there is the traditional route, degree program. and then there is alternative route where let's education degree. degree. classroom. i w track program where one can get licensed and typically that takes anywhere from one to three years. >> and this person already has a b.a. degree? >> that's right. >> they already have their four-year degree. so then they can just fast track and get that teaching certificate. >> that's right. >> and the costs of going to school can get expensive. so this scholarship would be fantastic for so many people. >> it is. wgu nevada already has a low price point. so for a full academic year at wgu nevada, it's $6,000. that's a flat fee. that actually covers your textbooks as well.
9:27 am
>> it does. >> usually it's not including the textbooks. so that's like another two grand. >> wow. >> what's interesting about wgu nevada is because we're a competency-based provider, one is able to accelerate through their course work if they can demonstrate mastery. so the average time for a four-year degree with us is about 2 1/2 years because people as students can accelerate through at their own pace. so at the end of the day, for a four-year degree, this is without the scholarship, but for a four-year degree, you're looking at $18,000, which is incredible. >> absolutely. less than one semester at some of the other schools that are out there. >> that's right. >> what are the other programs and courses that wgu offers? really a myriad? >> that's right. we have four academic colleges. business college, teachers college, our college of i.t., and our college of health professions. so across these four academic colleges, we have 50 bachelors and masters degrees.
9:28 am
you hit, these are all areas of high need areas in nevada. >> that's right. that's why nevada invited with, gu into the state because these are areas we certainly want to grow. >> and you can do this but at your leisure online, too, if you already have a job, but you want to get your certificate? >> that's right the primary market for wgu nevada is the adult learner because this is a self-paced curriculum. they can learn anywhere, any time. comfort their home or after hours working. it really is up to them to advance themselves. >> you can keep your job and go to school at the same time. >> that's right. >> it's really a phenomenal opportunity for some aspiring teachers out there. great having this. >> thank you. happy to be here. >> thank you so much. depend, if you're an aspiring teacher, this is for you. wgu nevada is offering up to 20 full-ride scholarships to help you achieve your goals while pursuing a career in elementary or secondary education. if you would like to learn more, head to t t web site right there on your screen. still to come, he was a wild man inside the ring and he's equally wild in front of a

people of flints, michigan are in a crisis with contaminated drinking water of the a new campaign is underway right now to help those affected.
9:31 am
>> here with more is ceo of zerowater, joe ceeb and doug kellam. good morning to both of you. good morning. >> thanks for having us. >> this has been in the news. everyone is so upset about this water contamination. can you tell us a little bit more about it? >> our first reaction, we first started hearing about this back in october of last year. what came out was about the heightened levels of some elementary schools and also some increase -- significant increase in lead poisoning among young, young children. we got involved with the united way and i've got four young kids myself in elementary school, so i took it personally. we've got a product, hopefully we'll have a chance to talk about the product. we've got a product that happens to be the easiest to way to remove lead from drinking water. so we started distributing them to the schools through united way and they've done a fantastic job. >> phenomenal. obviously lead in children is terrible. life long repercussions. >> exactly.
9:32 am
issue of water quality. it's not just in flint. this is something that all communities should be aware of because our infrastructure, what flint has, we may very well have as well. >> that's exactly right. there is probably millions of homes throughout the u.s. that are just like those in flint with lead products that are distributing their water. if the chemistry changes in the system water quality or you disturb the pipes, you can slough off or dissolve off that lead into the drinking water. it could happen anywhere. it's a lurking problem that could happen in millions of homes that have lead, especially older homes. i say older, but could be 30 years old. or not even that old. >> let's talk about ways that we can protect ourselves. >> sure. well, actually joe generally i would say testing. wouldn't you? there is one option is to make sure that you know, that you're aware of what's in your water.
9:33 am
, because -- they can't monitor every home all the time. >> because every faucet may have a different reading because it's within their home. >> we've done tests where we monitor like 12 different times during the day and it fluctuates widely during those times. epa can't catch all of that. >> you worked with the epa in the midwest. >> i ran the u.s. epa safe drinking water program in the midwest region which covers michigan for 20 years in my past life. >> this is a product here that helps us in our homes? >> this is actually the simplest and cheapest way to really remove lead from your water. and it's a short-term solution for a place like flint. it's a fantast thing to use. that's why we felt such an obligation to get our products down there. so you can see the products are similar to the typical picture, simple, easy to use, pour
9:34 am
are out there. ours is the only one that's certified to remove lead. so it removes lead to the safe levels that's declared by the epa and the reason for that is it's the filter. it's a very, very different filter technology. it's a superior patented, five-stage system versus typical two-stage systems which removes essentially all of the stuff dissolved in your water, versus others remove roughly half of the dissolved stuff. so mostly what people get out of that is fantastic tasting water. but in the case of somewhere like flint, it's a very, very simple way to remove lead. >> you just pop it into one of these devices? >> yeah. >> you can see this one has one already installed. you can see the filter in there. you can see the filter is much, much larger than your typical filter. so it doesn't necessarily fix more water. it does a much more complete job at filtering. >> absolutely.
9:35 am
>> exactly. >> you actually provide a test with the zerowater. what i did at home was we had one of the other brands and we put it in. it was getting a number like around 110. >> yep. >> then we ran it through zerowater and got all zeros on this. and you can't fake that. >> no, you can't. we don't make this. this is made by an independent company. it's a typical lab instrument. it's not to be used to measure lead because it can't discern lead versus other things. but it will tell you how many things are in your water and it will predict how good your water is going to taste. we get it down to 000 all the time. >> you got 000 of all things, then you got 000 of lead, too. >> yeah. >> again, this is available right now in stores so people can get it. >> yes. available in most major retailers. >> how many did you give away. >> we just introduced -- i'd
9:36 am
filters for flint program. it's joint program with the united way of genesee county, located. we realized that this issue is going to last quite some time. they're going to need a lot of filters and we can't continue to provide. we asked our donors to provide and we'll watch. we've expanded this to anybody that wants to match. this morning i found out one of the major retailers around the country -- i can't mention names yet -- will join us in this program. so it will be bigger and bigger. so so far i believe we're up to about 10,000 or so filters. so it's a good chunk of filters. >> no question. >> thank you so much. >> thank you so much for coming in with this piece of technology >> thanks for having this. get the clean water to residents of flint, michigan, with zerowater filters for flint campaign. they'll match every donation to the families of flint. >> to learn more about this and

9:40 am
>> you're an honorary elfish. >> i actually bring the document declaring me an ambassador so the kids don't get confused. >> then you take the turn in comedy. how long you been doing this now? >> for about six years. after my first book was published in 1999, i'm not sure if you knew this or not, but it was a towering "new york times" number one best seller. >> of course. >> actually two of those. >> now you're bragging. >> humble brag. >> i found the same type of stories that would make people laugh out loud. one of the greatest things you get is a spit take. that's a badge of honor. i would hear about these business people like get in certain first class, opening their briefcase, out comes one of my books. next thing you know, they're spitting their coffee in the guy in front of them. and i thought, why can't i do that in a live setting? it's work. you find out that it's work. >> oh, yeah. >> if you're lucky, you find a guy like bob levy who will
9:41 am
freelandser. if it was not for him, i would not be on any show. he caught up with me after the worst show i ever had. he said dude, it's not as bad as you think. ordinarily, dude, if someone goes 4 1/2 minutes without a single laugh, they're done. >> okay. so those who don't know, 1998, you were tossed off -- >> okay. >> means something different in different parts of the world. >> thrown off the stage, and then you're like what the heck. let's do it again. >> i wasn't like ah, what the heck. >> you get slammed into the ring like 15, 20 feet below. >> just giving away most of my show, by the way. >> that or having a five-minute set. >> i got to tell you, i realized
9:42 am
volunteer for rain, it's easier to compartmentalize or understand the physical pain. you understand why this hurts. when you are in pain mentally -- and i'm not trying to tie in like, well, i hate this criminal act to the way you feel when you're on stage, but it's really hard to understand why something hurts that bad, which is why no matter how bad someone is doing on stage or in life, i'm the guy who is going to reach down and give them a hand. i don't care how bad a comic is. i'm not saying that young mason who is here in vegas for the first time, brother of my great rival, randy ortono oh, my goodness. >> and son of cowboy bob orton junior who i tag teamed with in 1990. kid, no matter how bad you do, i'm going to be clapping for you. okay? the kind of guy i am. >> it's great having you.
