forced or ordered by the court to thaw and destroy those frozen embryos. >> people saying that's a precedent setting case. >> it's such an emotional story but i think in the end we learned a contract is a contract. we'll be talking with a fertility doctor on the 9 this morning about the decision and how men and women can go about protecting themselves. first we begin this morning, more developments continue to unfold about the paris attacks, the french government has determined the architect of the plot has been killed. in the meantime isis has released a new video threatening an attack against new york city and on capitol hill, lawmakers are voting on a plan filled with new hurdles for syrian and iraqi refugees trying to enter the united states. >> we're sharing this amazing video from a surveillance camera
inside a paris cafe at the time of the attack. take a look at the top left of your screen. that's where we have circled in red an image of one of the gunmen, black and white footage that captures the chaos during the shooting. >> and this sounds like something that might happen in my family. it was his mother's tears that convinced a california lutheran university student who is studying abroad in paris to come home. he flew back yesterday after cutting short his time in paris as an exchange student by a month. he wanted to stay the entire time but when his family learned he was at the soccer match when the terror attacks occurred, they pleaded with him to come home. >> we didn't know something very big was occurring until i believe the third explosion ended upcoming off, and that was when everyone just started to disperse and running for their lives. >> so scary. >> you
see the relief in mom clinging to her son. he plans to finish his foreign exchange program. he stopped at in n out burger before going home. >> you guys, the big news obviously this morning is the fact that french officials are confirming that the isis militant believed to have plotted the attacks is now dead. 27-year-old abdelhamid abaaoud is a man who authority say often bragged about being able to outsmart western intelligence officials but french prosecutors say he was in fact killed during a violent standoff outside paris yesterday. he was identified using skin samples collected at that scene. you might remember s.w.a.t. officers stormed an apartment. they were acting on a tip that the belgium national was hiding out there. abaaoud's cousin also died during the confrontation. she was wearing
an explosive vest and blew herself up. the french interior minister said today the isis militant who was taken out in this raid was already the subject of an international manhunt and he's thought to be responsible for four other foiled attacks in france just this year. >> abdelhamid abaaoud was under an international search warrant by belgium and has been condemned for 20 years. for several months, intelligence services in france that establish his responsibility in several attempts of attack against france. >> this morning france remains on heightened alert. the french prime minister today warned islamic extremists might next try to use chemical or biological weapons and he urged lawmakers to extend a national state of emergency by three months. that means broader police powers, also limits to public gatherings as well. there also are security concerns here in the u.s. an isis video
surfaced suggesting the extremist group plans to target new york city. mayor bill de blasio and the police chief, they held a news conference last night. you can well imagine they're trying to ease the fears of new yorkers and tourists. also speaking of the issue of security, here at home congress later today, they are expected to vote on a bill that would put in place stricter requirements for syrian refugees who are seeking asylum right now here in the u.s. there's a plan for about 10,000 refugees to make their way here to the u.s. republicans are pushing for stricter rules, pushing for changes here and they're going to be voting on a bill later on today. it all comes in response to the news that we brought folks yesterday that one of the paris attackers potentially slipped in to europe in a wave of syrian refugees and that's set off a political debate here in congress in the u.s. >> if the bill gets the green light, the president of the united states has the power to veto it. >> he absolutely does and he is promising to do so.
>> joining us on the phone, gill torres, a former special agent with the fbi whose experience contains national security and terrorist investigation. >> thank you for having me. >> thank you for joining us. let's start first with what alex reported, the threat against the united states, specifically new york city. how seriously should we be taking this? >> i think authorities always take these things seriously. i think the citizens should also be cautious. new york is an icon city in our country and certainly terrorists want to promote their propaganda and their fear agenda so yes, i'm not surprised that they would announce something like this. >> mr. torrez, what is the one single thing you'd recommend to us as citizens who want to help
out by maybe seeing something suspicious? what are we looking for? and what can we do to help the government stop these attacks? >> that's a great question. i've been asked several times the same question. i have to tell you that most of us understand or know our environments rather well. we know who parks near our homes. we know the people that walk the dogs by our houses and things like that. i think when a citizen sees something that is somewhat certainly strange or sketchy, unusual, that gets their, if you will, their spider senses, their gut feeling going in a different direction, then it's probably time to pick up the phone and let the local authorities know they've noticed something. i'm going to tell you that it's a two-edged sword to do that because obviously it
does consume resources. it does burden police and technicians and analysts because then they have to check this out. but we're living in an environment, in a climate that is better to be safe than sorry. >> let me ask you something, i feel like this willingness to commit suicide, we were watching video of the isis fighters training. to me this willingness to commit suicide really puts isis on a different level than any american has seen in an enemy before, or maybe a global enemy. would you agree to that? >> i agree to some point but i'm from the vietnam area and it's tough. when you have a predominantly christian society and you have professional police and military and you go up against fighters of this category, it makes the fight and the effort that much more
difficult when you're fighting someone who has already committed to take their own life and take as many of us with them, it is a force to be reckoned with. so yes, i think the approach, the mindset, the psychology is a little different, but if you think about it, it isn't anything new. our military has certainly faced this kind of enemy before. >> let me ask you here, the man who was taken out in the raid yesterday outside of paris, he's thought to have plotted the paris attacks and also have been responsible for four other foiled plots. how significant do you think his death really is in the grand scheme of things or is it really sort of next man up when it comes to isis? >> i do have definite feelings about it. my first one is i'm
very grateful, kudos to the french and belgians for doing this quickly. their police work, their intelligence work has been phenomenal and the fact that they got to this guy and found him quickly is just a great feather in their cap. i think they did a phenomenal job. the flip side to this is there will probably be somebody who will step in his shoes. now the hunt is for the replacement terrorist, the leader who's going to take the charge here but i tell you what, you've got to kill this thing by cutting off its head. we've got to go after whoever the next mastermind or leader of the pablg is. -- of the pack is. >> gill -- gil torrez, thank you for
your time. coming up on mornings on 2 the 9:00, a major ruling by a san francisco judge surrounding a fight over frozen embryos. we're live with a fertility specialist for more on the ruling. >> understanding how el nino affects the sierra snow pack. how much additional snowfall one expert is predicting. i have asthma... ...one of many pieces in my life. so when my asthma symptoms kept coming back on my long-term control medicine, i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece
in my asthma treatment. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. breo won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems. breo opens up airways to help improve breathing for a full 24 hours. breo contains a type of medicine that increases the risk of death from asthma problems and may increase the risk of hospitalization in children and adolescents. breo is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. once your asthma is well controlled, your doctor will decide if you can stop breo and prescribe a different asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. do not take breo more than prescribed. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse. ask your doctor if 24-hour breo could be a missing piece for you. see if you're eligible for 12 months free at mybreo.com. with a 100% electric nissan what will you do?
how far will you go? how much will you see? electrify the world. now with a class-leading 107 miles on a charge, the nissan leaf is the best selling electric car in america. welcome back to mornings on 2 the 9:00. a story that's making headlines around the country. a judge has ruled frozen embryos at the middle of a divorce case should be destroyed. >> they created the embryos after she found out she had breast cancer. they filed for divorce in 2013. >> the couple signed an agreement with ucsf that the
embryos would be destroy ed. she argued the embryos are her only path to biological motherhood. joining us is fertility specialist. to clarify, dr. lee's argument, the agreement she signed with ucsf was not binding and that it violated her right to procreate and the judge said no. >> i think it's really a tough case. it's a sad situation. no one gets married and then suffers and is cured basically from her breast cancer to have her own biological chance of having a pregnancy taken away from her. but doing ivf is a very serious decision. so when you're making a serious decision to create precious cells that have the potential for life, you need to really sit down and talk to your partner ahead of time and treat those ivf consent forms as a legal and binding document. >> the judge didn't buy that this woman, dr. lee, she's a
doctor, she didn't know what she was doing because she's actually working in the business, the medical field, so the judge in her 83-page decision said i don't buy the fact that this woman did not know what she was signing. >> i imagine she never thought she was going to get divorced and men always make sperm cells. in her case, she did her ivf at the age of 41. now she's over 45. her chance to have a child without those embryos, that opportunity is gone. >> are you telling women out there to protect themselves? in this case is there anything that they could have done differently or she could have done separately, maybe just saving her own eggs and then choosing? maybe it's still your husband. maybe it's not. you still have those eggs. >> very good point. absolutely. if you're in that situation where you're signing the consent forms and your partner has decided that if in
the case of a divorce those embryos will be discarded, make take pause and say, you know what, maybe i should do an egg freeze or set aside eggs for myself within this ivf cycle. but again, no one expects to get divorced. no one expects to get married then say i can't wait to see dr. amy so i can do ivf. >> as a doctor, do you feel like you have to bring that conversation up to the couple? >> it is part of our discussions. the ivf consent forms are lengthy and there are a number of things couples have to consider but they sign on the dotted line. >> in this case i do understand, you're in this haze of medical panic, your mind is not in the same place as if my husband and i took six months to discuss this step and went forward without a ticking clock. >> right. she had breast cancer. that is a fertility emergency. there are very few
fertility emergencies, or emergencies at all in my field. cancer is one of them. >> another thing that's come up is consent forms is usually a one-person document. for example, do not resuscitate. you sign it. you're the only person affected. you can change your mind. in this case there are two people affected. >> in this case a man is telling a woman she cannot have children but he can go on and have children. that's what makes it so unfair. but at the end of the day people have to understand how important those consent forms are and agreements up front. >> i have to challenge you on that because the court said, and a lot of people believe that she should not be able to force that man in to fatherhood against his will. >> you can't enforce parenthood on someone who doesn't want to be a parent. >> exactly. you can't force procreation so these embryos are precious cells. they're not children but there is a difference. >> it's heartbreaking all the way around. thank you for joining us on the 9:00. it's something we've been talking
about since the decision came out. we'd like to hear what you have to think about the decision. is it fair or not? tweet us use ing #ktvuthe9. coming up on mornings on 2 the 9, san francisco's processor square went public. we talk about the opening numbers and what this could forecast for the bay area economy. >> the search is underway again this morning for a missing woman in the napa river. coming up, details on that search and what we have just learned from the sheriff's department.
changes could be coming. you might be wondering why i'm doing your 5-day. steve is out there horsing around. in about 15 minutes we're going to go live to him at golden gate field. >> i want to see you standing in front of the green screen. >> weather in the area where you live. >> oh, my goodness. i think steve should be concerned. not really. >> for skiers and snowboarders the season is already off to a great start. >> there's more snow to come, maybe a lot more. >> mark tamayo takes us to donner summit to find out what the snow season will bring. >> reporter: the sierra has been robbed of moments like these over the past four years. moving through fall the restart button has been pressed. the sunny october days have already shifted to snow on the slopes in november. a promising sign for
the season ahead. from tahoe to the bay area, skiers and riders are gearing up for what could be a very different snow season. the difference now, el nino. >> it's a pretty new fleet and we've tested them. >> reporter: the sports basement in san francisco has been in transition, changing over from a full supply of like rentals to snow gear. >> we've seen 3x more ski leases at this point compared to last year so people aren't scared of the season this year. i think they're pretty excited about it. >> reporter: the warm water in the equatorial pacific is the trademark of elnen -- el nino. it may send a storm barreling to southern california. john has watched this mountain transform over the last few weeks. this was october. this is november. sugar bowl is prepping for an early opening day. the resort is hoping a new season will erase the memories of four challenging years.
>> when you don't see a lot of the skiers and riders turning out and you're not getting big visitation numbers, you do have to really put control measures on a lot of your operations. >> this lift was powered down last march, wrapping up another very disappointing snow year in the sierra. now we have an extreme el nino to talk about and there's building hope this winter will be way more productive. >> we're very hopeful in the industry that this el nino season is going to flip the script. we'll start seeing storms line up like they historically do. >> reporter: the link between sierra snow and el nino is studied here. the desert research institute in reno. >> the great basin ends at the crest of the sierra up here. >> reporter: kelly redmond is a regional climatologist. he's been researching el nino since the 80s. computer models have come a long way since then and he studies all of them. >> this is a new experimental approach that's been taken by
noaa coordinating a set of seven models from different parts of north america. >> reporter: a guaranteed forecast will never come out of this research office but redmond is leaning toward an optimistic outlook. >> normally i'd be kind of with el nino. i'd be pretty cautious. i'm slightly less cautious this year in my thinking that we could be in for a pretty decent winter. >> reporter: this footage is from the 1983 el nino, a great snow year. the snowfall at donner summit crested above the average of nearly 400 inches. same story for the el nino of the '90s. what about this season? the nearby casinos remind us there are no guarantees, only probabilities. >> if you had to bet over, under? >> i'd bet on the over this time around. the donner summit, i might be willing to bet on an extra hundred inches or so if i had a few bucks to play with. >> above average?
>> yeah, above average. >> reporter: whether we get rain or snow is the unknown. temperatures are forecasted to be above normal this winter and each storm is unique. so at this point there's no telling whether we'll get more cold or warm storms. the talk of el nino is adding to the excitement of the powder. >> really participant up demand for powder skiing in tahoe and we certainly hope to deliver it. >> reporter: that big season may or may not be in our future but the odds may be tilted in our favor this time around. mark tamayo, ktvu fox 2 news. the preparations many homeowners are already making here in the bay area for a wet winter ahead. meteorologist steve paulson will show us how much rain we can expect tonight at 10:00. this morning we're keeping an eye on san francisco-based square. it started publically trading this morning. stock is at about $12.50, up about 40% exactly already. joining us via skype, national business correspondent, brian van miller.
my first question to you, if i want to get rich, should i buy square right now? >> no, i wouldn't do it. i'm not a financial analyst myself but everybody i talk to says this is not the day to buy. you let all the high fliers try to take a crack at it to get in and out of the market today. it's the same thing when earnings come out for a company. you wait, some people have the three-day rule. give it three days to settle down so you see exactly where it's going. they originally prigesed this thing between $11 and $13. they lowered it to $9 before the open. they did that as a smart thing. better to start lower then have it go higher. >> the evaluation of square was $6 billion but then dropped a couple billion. do you think the evaluations of these start-ups are dropping? would you say they're hitting a bubble? >> that's the question that everybody in the bay area has been talking about for months now. that is are we really in a high tech bubble. what they're really talking about are not the
companies that are public because they're generating cash and making money. pre-ipo people like square, like uber, like airbnb, square was evaluated at $6 billion. today it's at $3 billion. that's a haircut of a lot. with the high tech bubble, it's these pre-ipo people with sky high evaluations. we call them you -- unicorns. the marketplace is what tells you what it's really worth. >> does jack dorsey being ceo of square raise concerns for people who are stockholders for twitter? do people believe he can be ceo effectively? >> obviously the board of directors does and obviously jack dorsey does. but i'm not so sure because i think they're very, very difficult businesses. jack says he can do both and perhaps he can. i think that's a lot of heavy lifting.
remember going back to twitter, twitter started, its ipo was at $25. it went up to $60. it's back to $25 right now. twitter has a way to go. by the way, square is not making any money yet. it still has to be truth be told, has a lot of competition. >> twitter is not making any money either, right? >> no. and that's why when you take a look at some of these, you say, okay, but their evaluations are not as bad as a bubble that burst in the year 2000. then it was absolutely crazy. now they're called growth stocks so they have the potential for growth. so i'm not as concerned about the tech bubble in those companies. my concern is the uber and the air bns taking money out of money in private equity that they're never going to go back when they go public. >> are we seeing more 24-year-old millionaires spending $3 million on condos in san francisco's mission district? >> you certainly know this, and
sal covering traffic knows, it's terrible. square, by the way, some of the money they're going to use is to hire more people. those people are going to need houses. those people are going to get on the highway. the good news is the bay area economy is booming. unemployment is down. they're making lots of money. the bad news is the middle class, home prices, the traffic. i just got back from a technology conference in dublin, ireland last week. they had the same problem. the house prices have doubled in dublin. traffic downtown dublin is terrible. it's mirroring us. as you have this growth, sal, you certainly know with traffic. it ain't easy. it's terrible in san francisco. >> right. i just checked twitter's stock. it's up 1% today so they got that going for them. >> a lot of people will wonder should i get in, should i get out? i'd advise, if you're a gambler, go to vegas instead. >> thanks, brian. >> good to see you guys.
coming up here on mornings on 2, some of us here at ktvu started the day with coffee and a flu shot. even sal got in on it. i couldn't feel a thing. pam cook is going to tell us more about the difference between the cold and the flu and when you need to take action. hey mom, i could use some basil. oh, sure thing, sweetie. life is eating out of a flower pot. wait where's the? right. it's being a food paparazzi. honey, your rump roast just broke the internet. as it should. and a takeout romantic. dessert! happy anniversary. life is mucho, and grande. life is eating, laughing, loving and a place to enjoy it together.
trolling. >> it's beautiful. makes me wish i was there. >> you can join our conversation here on ktvu by reaching us on #ktvuthe9. >> i've got a lot of people talking about flu shots. we're going to bring in pam cook in a minute. a couple people are saying i can't handle flu shots. jack nelson writes you're brave, i can't take flu shots. other people saying good thing you got one now. >> some people think the flu shot can get them sick so we'll clear all that up. we're following some of the top stories around the bay area. let's go to dave clark. >> minutes ago the napa county sheriff's department announced they recovered a body in the same area of the napa river where a woman went missing last night. the sheriff's department says they have not positively identified the body as that missing woman. not yet. friends say the woman went jet
skiing last night after 8:00 near the napa valley marina. the woman's jet ski was recovered near a bridge with major damage. it's consistent with a possible collision in to that bridge. the video you're looking at is from this morning. the coast guard and the helicopters out there helping out with that search. the crews started searching for her shortly after 10:00 last night. friends say she always wore a lifejacket when she was on the water. the coast guard confirmed with us the recovered body did have a lifejacket on it. we'll keep you posted. a homeless man is being charged in san francisco in connection with graffiti found in a french school in san francisco. 44-year-old edward vanwright is charged with vandalism, trespassing, and being a sex offender on school grounds. it's possible he may also face a hate crime charge. the graffiti found tuesday at the french american international school was an 8
pointed star with a crescent moon. the police believe that's the symbol of a group founded by a student of malcolm x. but they say there's no evidence meant to harm the school or connected to terrorism. students will be gathering today for a special discussion about a nationally published article focusing on teenage suicides. it's one of two palo alto schools in the cover story of this article in the atlantic. the centers for disease control said would be studying suicides and looking at prevention methods. since october last year four former or current palo alto school district students have committed suicide. we are also following developing news out of los angeles. a manhunt is going on after a police officer was found shot to death in the parking lot
of his own police station. authorities say it appears officer ricardo galvez was deliberately targeted just after getting off of work. he was sitting in his car at the parking lot at the downy police headquarters after 11:00 last night when two men came up and shot him. another officer tried to pursue the gunman. police have set up a perimeter around several apartments in the neighboring city of montebello looking for the suspects. a 5-year-old boy and his father still recovering after being wounded in the drive-by shooting in richmond. shots were fired from another car. witnesses reported seeing a white car speeding away from the scene of the shooting, possibly an oldsmobile, maybe early 2000s model. anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call richmond police. police in el cerrito are hoping selfies taken by a suspected thief will lead to her arrest. the woman in these photos reportedly punched and
robbed a 15-year-old girl who was on her way home from school earlier this month. the thief then took off with her phone and backpack. the victim later noticed selfies uploading to her cloud and recognized the woman as her attacker. police now hope someone will call with more information on the case. you can get your flu shot today without leaving your home. uber will be making house calls to san francisco and several other cities nationwide. from 11:00 to 4:00 you select the uber health section. you have to pay $10 for a wellness pack then request the option for a free flu shot. a registered nurse will come to your location and give the shots to you and up to 10 people. the program was launched last year and expected to be in high demand again this year. speaking of the flu, pam cook is here. >> i had my flu shot live on the air on mornings on 2 just to show everybody it's not a big
deal, just a little bit of a pin prick. some of the questions, should i get my flu shot? how do i know if my child or i have the flu or just a cold? i did get my flu shot live on the air, mornings on 2 to show it isn't a big deal. it's not painful. it's very fast . dr. mitch gave me a vaccine. he's the medical director at u.s. health works. he says there are clear ways to tell if you have the cold or flu and when you should see the doctor. >> if your spiking temperatures have been hit very hard, very fast and have a lot of muscle aches throughout your body those raise alarm bells for me as a physician. >> the flu does not usually come with a sore throat and runny nose. that's a cold. getting enough sleep
does strengthen your immune system. you need at least seven hours of sleep. i don't know about you guys, i'm not getting seven hours of sleep. [ laughter ] he says being in good overall health helps as well. some of the other things to build your immune system, i know mike was just alluding to the fact, we were talking about the nasal mist versus the flu shot. both very effective. one is more cost-effective. sometimes kids are afraid of a needle. it's the same. you got the nasal. >> i got manipulated by my children's pediatrician. we have this debate. it's either 50/50, i haven't gotten it this year and i don't know if i will. children will. >> a lot of parents, i'm really good about getting my kids their flu shot. it's important because you're around them as well.
>> some people think the flu shot gets them sick. >> i asked the doctor that. it's not a live virus. you cannot get ill from the vaccine. you may have already had something in your system when you went in but you cannot get ill from the flu vaccine. >> if i can recycle what i said after your live report on mornings on 2, you bring new meaning to the word live shot. get it, live shot? [ laughter ] >> thank you for playing along. i was in the green room for a minute right before, i was joining mornings on 2 and i got my flu shot as well and so did sal castaneda. >> that's right. [ applause ] >> thank you very much. i tried to make it dramatic. >> look at gasia. [ laughter ] >> that's a flu shot.
>> we also had our executive producer brandon to jump in. he has a newborn baby at home. sal, your little one is 9 months old, 10 months old, but still little. those of us who have little ones at home need to be extra cautious. >> babies haven't had all their immunizations yet. >> and wash your hands. i asked him about the antibacterial wipes. he said soap and water, washing your hands, best defense. >> i got my flu shot, feeling good. coming up on mornings on 2 the 9, gearing up for the holiday season. the preparations underway for a san francisco tradition that girfbss animals the gift of a home.
it is 9:43. welcome back to mornings on 2, the 9. steve paulson has made his way over to berkeley's golden gate field where some of the horses are wrapping up their morning training. >> that is correct. we are out here, it's a beautiful morning at golden gate fields. that we'd come out here. you can see the beautiful scenery right here. the horses just finishing up their morning workouts. here comes one right here. what we want to talk to is the man who calls the races here, not only that, but also the surface which is unique to california and joining me now is the voice of the golden gate field track
announcer, how are you, sir? >> tremendous. great to have you here. >> do you have a photographic memory? >> that's a prerequisite for my job. >> you can't come here comes the 4, here comes the 7. word association or what? >> it's actually done with the what? >> it's the jockey's colors. i commit them to memory in the 10 minutes or so leading up to every race. it's the different color combinations i relate to. i probably say each horse's name 50 or 100 times before the race, drilling it in to my head in the form of a mantra. you have to forget as efficiently as you remember because you might have a horse in the following race with the same set of colors. >> so there in lies being able to differentiate between the two. >> it's very much a short-term memory. >> the track here is not dirt. it's called tipeta but madeute eat -- but
it's made out of what? >> the traditional dirt track will get sloppy or muddy and the horses or jockeys will get mud splattered. from a race calling standpoint, i love the synthetic surface because the horse can come from last on a wet track or a wet day and the silkerize still clean and i know who they are. >> some horses love it, some don't. there are those who like it, some who don't. >> the tipeta fits somewhere between dirt and turf as how horses adjust in the depth to it. now we have three different types of surfaces people have to consider when they're placing their bets. >> we want to talk about some video, this isn't the horse but there's a horse here, his name is shared belief. he's here. he's one of the best horses not only around but in the country when he's healthy. >> yes, and he made his first career start here at golden gate field. it was a jaw dropping
performance. everybody knew we had seen a horse with great potential. he went on to beat the champion 2-year-old of his field and had a fantastic season last year. we just got him back on the grounds and we're excited to have him back. >> if you come out to golden gate fields and you hear the man calling the races, this is him. name some of the big time trainers. >> jerry hollandorfer, steve sherman, who is the son of art sherman, the trainer of california chrome. steve actually has california chrome's little sister, a 3-year-old filly called hope's love. we're excited about her as well. it's a good collection of trainers and of course jockeys. >> and by the way, i should add, some of the best food around upstairs in that turf club. >> not to mention the view from the turf club out around the bay. >> so live from golden gate fields here, mr. michael rana. you can just bet $2 and have
fun. >> it's a blast. i always thought paulson would be the nice name of a horse. can you have michael belt out here comes paulson on the backstretch? >> oh, he can't hear us. >> we are all reporters. if you can't hear something, stay there until they clear you. for you youngsters out there, stay like this. >> thank you.
