down. snooping scandal. yahoo!'s ceo marissa mayer under fire for reportedly complying with the government's request to secretly search hundreds of millions of e-mail accounts, a massive invasion of privacy or an important tool in the war on terror? and "today" exclusive, it's behind these walls that one of the biggest pop stars lived and recorded many of his hits. only a select few have ever been inside, but this morning they're opening the doo paisley park just for us, and we're getting a first-ever live tour, today, wednesday, october 5th, 2016. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie. live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. and good morning, everyone, welcome to "today" on a wednesday morning. that map we've been watching of
7:02 am
more ominous for the united states. >> not to be all al roker about it, but it seems like those models have converged and it's headed this way. >> that is our top story. preparations are under way for matthew across the south as the storm cuts a path of destruction through the caribbean that will eventually bring it here to the u.s. we have it all covered beginning with dylan dreyer. she's in the orange room that we've turned into a hurricane center as the track of the storm gets cl. dylan. >> that's right, matt, we are keeping a close eye on hurricane matthew. after cuba it has downgraded to a category 3 hurricane with pi winds up to 125 miles an hour. that's still a major hurricane and we're still expecting some fluctuation in intensity over the next couple of days. so it's most likely going to regenerate back up into a category 4 storm as it takes nearly a day and a half to make its way into the bahamas. here we are friday 2:00 a.m.
7:03 am
hurricane and then it tracks right along the coast of florida as we go into the weekend. but now it's not looking like north carolina is going to get that landfall. instead even some models have this wrapped back around into the bahamas and then rehit southern florida, possibly as we go into next week. still way to early to determine that part of the forecast, but we have a lot to watch in the meantime. we could see a 10 to 15-foot storm surge in the southern bahamas starting today. we could end up with a totalf as it gets closer to florida, we'll see the outer bands begin to move in on thursday, closer enough to produce a 3 to 4-foot storm surge. if the storm goes a little further west, this could make possible landfall in florida so that's the situation we're running into. it's only 50 to 100 miles offshore. if it goes a little farther to the west, which the models have been trending to do with this storm, we could see greater impacts for florida.
7:04 am
gabe gutierrez is in port-au-prince, haiti, this morning. good morning. >> reporter: matt and savannah, good morning. we've seen more rain here in port-au-prince but a large swath of the southwestern part of the country remains cut off from communications so the full extent of damage is not yet known. this was a powerful hurricane, the strongest to hit haiti in more than 50 years. this morning hurricane matthew is on the move. the monster storm 90 packing winds of 140 miles an hour, matthew's eye sweeping across eastern cuba overnight and now targeting the bahamas. after slamming into haiti, the poorest country in the western hemisphere, still recovering from a massive earthquake, now reeling from yet another natural disaster. today the u.s. is sending several naval ships to help with ranslator: i've never seen
7:05 am
>> the hurricane now blamed for at least 11 deaths including four in the dominican republic where this tornado was caught on camera. torrential downpours and a devastating storm surge swamping parts of jamaica. the hardest hit, haiti's rural peninsula where many ignored evacuation warnings and a key bridge washed away cutting villages off from the capital. rivers rage. floods and mud slides threaten the strongest hurricane in haiti's recent memory now has the u.s. east coast on high alert. today a massive cleanup effort is under way in haiti as aid organizations scramble to reach the southwestern part of the country that so far remains cut off. matt and savannah? >> gabe gutierrez, thank you. >> millions up and down the east coast are preparing for matthew with states of emergency in florida, georgia, and the carolinas.
7:06 am
charleston, south carolina, where evacuations are under way. good morning to you. >> reporter: matt, good morning. that number is staggering, 1.1 million people along south carolina's coast asked to evacuate and asked to move 100 miles inland and the governor here ordering a state of emergency at grocery stores, shelves are running bare and water is running low and gas is on short supply. the governor has said everyone needs to have three days of food and water ready. it is an incredible numberf move even including lane reversals. later on today, some 280 school busses will be set up, ready to load and take people inland if they're not able to drive their own vehicles that way. schools have been canceled in half of the state here today, matt, and it's not just south carolina, but parts of florida who are bracing for $100 mile an hour winds and many are told to be on alert and to evacuate up
7:07 am
direction. >> thanks. >> we'll have more as we go on this morning and now to the battle for the white house and the state of the race today 34 days to go until election day and vice presidential candidate, mike pence and tim kaine sparred for 90 minutes last night and this was their one and only debate and the candidates used a lot of that time to attack hillary clinton and donald trump. >> how did they do? according to a cnn poll taken just after that debate, 48% of people felt pence won. donald trump will hold a rally in nevada. this is the first trip to that state since august. hillary clinton has no scheduled campaign events on her calendar. >> we have a lot to cover with the decision 2016 team. let's begin with hallie jackson. good morning to you. hi, matt. good morning. this morning both vice presidential candidates will get back out on the campaign trail after a debate that was defined by the top of the ticket. tim kaine interrupting often on
7:08 am
on defense to answer for his candidate's controversies, while the v.p. debate may not move the needle much with voters, it did reveal more about the strategy each side has to try to win come election day just a month away. >> finally their turn to talk and the vp nominees couldn't seem to stop. >> people at home cannot understand either one of you when you speak over each other. >> just trying to keep up with the insult-driven campaign on the other side -- >> your running mate, and i know you can't -- >> senator, please. >> that was part of mike pence's mission. counterbalance donald trump's controversies even as tim kaine pushed pence to directly defend his candidate like for trump's comments on women and mexicans. >> senator, you -- you whipped out that mexican thing again. >> #thatmexicanthingagain trending on twitter overnight.
7:09 am
>> and yet he is asking everybody to vote for someone that he cannot defend. >> on style, kaine coming under fire for sounding too rehearsed and too pushy. >> ronald reagan said something really interesting about nuclear proliferation back in the 1980s. he said the problem with nuclear proliferation is that some fool or maniac could trigger a catastrophic event, and i think that's who governor pence's runninge president reagan warned us about. >> senator, that was even beneath you and hillary clinton and that's pretty low. >> on substance, a split on russia. pence, unlike trump, suggesting strikes against the russian-backed syrian regime and also unlike trump, slamming president vladimir putin. >> a small and bullying leader of russia. >> less than a month ago. >> i think it's inarguable that vladimir putin has been a
7:10 am
this country. >> donald trump and mike pence have said he's a great leader and donald trump -- >> you know -- >> pence hitting hillary clinton's email and the clinton foundation controversies, and answering questions about his running mate's nearly billion-dollar loss in 1995 revealed in tax documents leaked to "the new york times". >> he used the tax code just the way it was supposed to be used and he did it brilliantly. >> this morning a new interview with trump's former accountant who prepared those the lowest possible tax for him within the law and he never went into the details. >> trump's taxes likely to stay in the spotlight. as for the vp debate in virginia, we are told hillary clinton watched it from her home in new york. donald trump from the campaign trail where he live tweeted it and no surprise, declared mike pence the winner, but it's the republican national committee that apparently got ahead of itself in declaring a victor last night. the rnc accidentally putting up
7:11 am
spin hours before the debate even happened praising mike pence for his attacks on hillary clinton. matt? savannah? >> halle, thank you very much. >> good morning. last night you asked what are we going to be talking about tomorrow morning and you said the next debate on sunday night. >> i left out matthew and that i am serious about. >> seriously, what's the headline from this vp debate. what will we take mike pence a lot of good and did he, while he gave the trump campaign a positive headline after days of of a debacle. did he do enough to defend trump? or are we going to be talking about too many areas where the two of them disagreed. >> on that point, tim kaine went after him on taxes, temperament and some of the insulting comments that trump has made over different groups over the
7:12 am
mike pence denied he made those comments even though they exist on tape. what's that strategy? >> i think this is where pence won the 90 minutes and didn't engage back and forth and in the way that the clinton campaign said wait, he said wrong, trump did say x and trump did say y. it's all up to the moment, but who's watching and who wins. the post-spin could matter. >> it's not just a mat kaine did take a lot of criticism for his style being overly amped up, aggressive, interrupting too much. do you think that will matter? >> if you were watching, it matters. i mean he talked all over a female moderator, which is tricky and doesn't go over well among any viewer.
7:13 am
some of her diplomacy issues where she's weak. i don't think he was a very good ambassador for her last night. when you're up six, you don't have to deliver the kind of performance that he delivered last night. >> there's another aspect of this. in addition to attacking the top of the other ticket and going on the offensive, did either of them present themselves as ready to be commander in chief should that situation occur? did they seem presidential? >> you know what's funny that question is i think there are people in both parties that would have preferred to have seen either man at the top of the ticket. they both passed that test. they both passed that test when they took it to the table, which is what makes kaine's performance all the more inexplicable. trump is already on the defensive because of his own poor performance in his own debate. so for kaine to have squandered the opportunity to further hillary clinton's cause and spend the whole time interrupting, filibustering and
7:14 am
sort of a mind-boggling strategic decision. >> real quickly, perhaps it won't change the outcome of the actual election, but did pence manage to swing the momentum back in trump's favor? >> i don't know. i think a lot matters on whether they could have done something today. i think part of it is i don't think they get much out of this debate after really this morning, to be honest. >> all right, chuck and nicolle, go get some rest. thank you. i want to turn to a closely watched trial of a georgia his son died inside of a hot suv. for the first time, dash cam video from the scene has been released. nbc's janet shamlian has more. >> reporter: never-before-seen dash cam video played for the jury in the ross harris trial. it shows the moments when police first arrived on a horrific scene. a spot where harris said he found his son, cooper, dead in
7:15 am
on the phone and became argumentative when they approached him. once in cuffs and in a cruiser, police testified harris was unemotional and complained about the heat. in opening statements tuesday, harris' attorney defending his reaction. >> we expect that you're going to hear lots of state's witnesses come in and suggest he didn't act right, he didn't cry enough. none of them knew ross. none of them know his coping mechanism for trauma. >> reporter: harris' defense team also addressed accusations of lewd sexual behavior but said it didn't amount to murder. >> ross's sex life, no matter how perverse and nasty and wrong that we think it is, it doesn't
7:16 am
that little boy. >> reporter: adding that harris' ex-wife will testify on his behalf. >> the woman who's got every reason in the world to despise his guts, she's going to say the truth. she's going to tell you they got it wrong. >> reporter: that's for the jury to decide. for "today," janet shamlian, nbc news. and now to a new report and it's raising questions about privacy online. it claimsnt at the government's request secretly searched its users' incoming e-mails. pete williams is following that for us. pete, good morning. >> reporter: savannah, good morning. the company isn't saying much, but tellingly no one familiar with the report is denying it and it comes at a time when yahoo! is already under fire for the massive data breach that it recently revealed. according to a report from the reuters news agency, yahoo!'s
7:17 am
obey rather than fight a u.s. government directive to have its own computers scan all incoming e-mail messages last year, looking for a specific term that had intelligence agencies on the lookout. the company says just this, yahoo! is a law-abiding company and complies with the laws of the united states. ceo mayer said at a tech conference in 2013 that yahoo! does fight some government demands. >> on each request we review it, scrutinize it, push >> privacy matters. >> reporter: three years ago edward snowden's leak said its computers searched for specific terms to investigate potential terrorists. but last year yahoo! began encrypting its e-mails making it impossible for the government to scan him. reuters said yahoo! was doing the searching last year on realtime on millions of incoming messages looking for a term supplied by the government.
7:18 am
government, what you're doing is exposing your users to criminal investigation. >> reporter: yahoo! itself has been scanning user e-mail content for years, looking for terms it can use to tailor ads to individual users. the website's user policy is explicit. quote, yahoo! analyzes and stores content from incoming and outgoing e-mail. both google, the world's largest e-mail provider, and microsoft, say they have never performed such scans of e-mail traffic for the government. twitter says that if it ever got such a matt, savannah. >> pete williams in our washington newsroom, thank you. let us go back over to dylan for the rest of her forecast. >> we are watching matthew but the rain we're going to see, scattered storms and showers in florida not related to hurricane matthew just yet. that will change as we got to the end of the week. we have a chance of strong storms today right through the middle of the country including indiana and illinois. we also have some rain making its way into the pacific

8:10 am
8:10. ben stiller revealing his fight with cancer diagnosed with prostate cancer friday, june 13th, 2014. on september 17th of that same year i got the test back telling me i was cancer-free. the three months in between were a crazy roller coaster ride with which about 180,000 men a year in america can identify. stiller also talked about his diagnosis in an interview with howard stern. >> at first i didn't know what was going to happen so i was scared. you know, i was scared.
8:11 am
just stops everything in your life. one of the main things i felt was i was really lucky as i learned more about prostate cancer. i learned that i was someone who had a case that could be treated. there are a lot of people who can't. >> stiller credits a diagnostic test known as the psa with his life but the guidance is a little mixed, both on just how valuable that test is and when men should start screening. we asked dr. oz to stop by and take us through it. no history, no symptoms. is he the kind of guy to get a psa test? >> there's a reason that all the major medical societies agree that it should not be part of a routine screening. for every thousand men who get screened for the psa, you only save one life. so identifying who that one person is becomes a bit of a challenge. >> so you're saying it's a double-edged sword? because in addition to the one person, and he says that test saved his life, you get a lot of other false positives and people
8:12 am
>> it may have saved ben stiller's life but just to be clear, he didn't jump into surgery when he was diagnosed. he took a while to figure out if he could do things to reduce his psa number. that's the big problem. a lot of men panic when they have an elevated psa. psa stands for prostate-specific antigen. it doesn't mean you have cancer, it means there's something wrong with your prostate. it could be an infection, irritation, or it could be cancer. t panicked if your spouse has an elevated psa so you go to the doctor and get it whacked out. so that causes problems with impotence, inkacontinence and sometimes people die. >> so you don't treat the number, you treat the entirety of the patient. >> just like ben stiller did. you go to the best experts out there that you think might make sense for you. for example, if you have an infection, treat the infection
8:13 am
you'll have biopsies done. >> but the message is a little bit mixed. what would you say to the guys sitting out there with no history and no symptoms. should he or should he not get the psa screening? >> i would follow the government guidelines. here's the catch what would mehmet oz do, i'd say get the test. information is power. if i have an elevated psa, i can can start doing things that might reverse the chances of my developing advanced prostate cancer. we now have data on how powerful lifestyle is. detecting whether you might have elevated psa and prostate cancer is not the same as acting differently in your own life. the things that work, for example, to prevent heart disease from killing you also work for prostate cancer. so fruits and vegetables, making sure you have oily fish in your
8:14 am
the chance of dying from prostate cancer. that may be the biggest takeaway and the ben stiller effect. the aware of how powerful this is. we're coming back in two weeks, men's health on the "today" show. there's a whole opportunity there. >> dr. oz, always good to see you. thank you very much. of course you can see more of him weekdays. check your local listings. let's turn to dylan now for a check of the weather. >> thanks, matt. we had just gotten the latest update on hurricane wi winds are still keeping it as a major category 3 hurricane and it is moving to the north. there will be some fluctuations in intensity as it moves through the bahamas. there's still the possibility it could strengthen up to a category 4 hurricane as we go into thursday, possibly even as a category 4 hurricane just off the coast of florida. again, this is the track we're watching because now it's a little bit closer to the eastern coast of florida than it was
8:15 am
like it's going to make landfall in north carolina, it will wrap its way around. we could see a storm surge 3 and that's your latest forecast. >> thank you so much. now let's get to what's trending today. apparently shoulders are not trending, if you look at dylan and hoda. >> and one of our producers
8:16 am
>> carson has no shoulders on his shirt. >> here is an update to a story we first told you about late last year. a creative way to expand airlines, recruiting people who have little experience and then turning them into pilots. bloomberg reports the program has now kicked off. it costs $125,000 in training fees to join. among the six participants, a supermarket clerk, a baggage handler and an equipment operator. they have already spent three weeks aerodynamics and aircraft systems. next week the recruits start seven months of actual flight training. the goal is to turn them into full-fledged pilots by 2020. >> is that a reality show? >> i don't think so, no. >> it's like up withw upward to. a hospital just charged a
8:17 am
this is what the parents got in the mail. look at the highlight. skin-to-skin charge for contact with the baby, $39.95. now, online people were outraged and confused, what does this all mean? well, this morning the hospital tells us the charge is not for actually holding your baby, it's actually for the cost of bringing an additional caregiver into the o.r. after the c-section. the hospital says this ensures the highest level of patient safety. but i mean it is kind of amusing. >> even skin-to-skin doesn't sound right. >> but holding your baby for $39.95, good price. >> i was looking at the total cost. is it really that expensive. >> whatever it was, yes, yes. all right, carson. >> oh, this one's for you, hoda. let's start with the first couple of country music. faith hill and tim mcgraw had their 20th wedding anniversary
8:18 am
>> all right, okay, so we are going back on the road on tour. >> pretty cool. for the first time in a decade, faith and tim will go next april but you're not going to have to wait that long to see them because faith and tim are joining our family at "the voice." this month they will be the key advisers who will work with all four of our coaches and we are thrilled about two of the greatest people, forget in music but in general. >> can i come? >> please. we're going to move on to lin manuel miranda, the show of "hamilton." he's hosting snl this weekend. and this cast member learned something strange about him. >> i just saw "hamilton." >> you've seen it? i'm so jealous. >> you haven't seen it?
8:19 am
i can't get tickets. >> i'm just worried we're not going to get along. >> why is that? >> well, i'm -- i'm more of a lin manuel samantha. >> i thought about what samantha said that week. i thought new york is -- >> lin, you're not the carry. please sign my "hamilton" -- >> a little "sex and the city" humor at snl. we're going parton. she's collaborated with a lot of stars, but guess who she might like to work with next. any guesses? that's right, snoop dogg. she said that her husband not only loves him but can relate to him. so that got us thinking what would a dolly parton/snoop sound like? ?
8:20 am
hot/jolene special there. >> things you learn. all right, carson, thanks. let's send it over to matt. >> thank you, savannah. back in march, maria sharapova was wanted from tennis for two years for failing a drug test at the australian open. sharapova claimed she was unaware that the substance she had been using had bee banned. here's part of what she had to say at the time. >> i take great responsibility and professionalism in my job every single day, and i made a huge mistake. i know that with this i face consequences and i've -- i don't want to end my career this way, and i really hope that i will be given another chance to play this game. >> on tuesday sharapova's
8:21 am
months, meaning she can return to tennis in april. she's joining us now. maria, it's nice to see you. >> nice to see you. >> i want to take you back to that press conference. you said "i made a huge mistake." but in your mind it was an honest mistake, is that a fair assessment? >> yes, absolutely. when i got the e-mail that i made this violation back in march, my first instinct was i need to go to the world and tell the truth in what actually happened and i'm actually proud of the moment because what i said from the first day is the same thing that i'm saying today. >> and so when the punishment was handed down and it was a two-year suspension, which i understand the itf, the international tennis federation, had actually wanted a longer ban, did you think that the punishment fit the crime? >> for an honest mistake, a two-year ban i don't think was correct. i had admitted my mistake. i also knew that there was a
8:22 am
other organizations had in order to notify me of new prohibitive substances, especially when someone was taking a substance that was completely legal for ten years and from one day to the next it becomes illegal and you have no notices, no e-mails, no direct communications that other fed raising did. >> so here comes the court of arbitration for sport and they basically agree with you. they say they found no deliberate attempt to dope. they found noib they say it's an honest mistake and that raises a question. so why didn't they just release the suspension today? why do you think you have to continue through 15 months? >> well, the least i could have received was one year based on the current rules. the itf rule book. so i received 15 months because i didn't delegate the job to my agent well enough. i didn't check with him at the end of 2015 and make sure that he was checking that list.
8:23 am
>> but there's nothing else we don't know. so when you say you made a huge mistake, there's nothing as to why this court of arbitration may have continued with 15 months? >> nothing at all. the last things itf has made has been overturned by c.a.s.t. >> you know this created an uproar when it was announced. there were other players that said you cheated. you're a cheater. what kind of response orel to get to the sport from your peers? let's start with your peers first. >> i think i've been respected as an athlete ever since i came on tour. i'm tenacious, i'm a fighter, i show a lot of spirit out on the court and i think a lot of players and a lot of fans really respect that. the impact that i've had on millions of lives, i really recognize in these last seven months and the people that have
8:24 am
i can't wait to see you back. it's been pretty incredible. >> and yet for all the supportive people, there are probably people on the other side of the fence. might you face some boos? are you prepared for that? >> i faced boos before. i'm sure i'll face boos in the future for different reasons. but that's part of sport. that's what makes it exciting, that adds that extra pressure and i love it. >> what about getting back to the sport and getting back to the top of the sport. you're going to turn 30 just again. >> yes. >> can you get back into top form? >> that's my goal and that's what i asked for. i feel that ever since i received that e-mail in march, i started my comeback. i knew i would be out for a year at least and i knew i had to put my mind in the right -- be in the right frame of mind to start my comeback. and i've had that in my mind and i can't wait. >> is there an impact in not using that substance that you
8:25 am
said perhaps increased your lung capacity. can you have the endurance you once had without using that substance? >> well, i will look with my medical team for a substitute, for something that is legal and okay to take. >> what's the takeaway from all of this? what's the lesson? >> i think the biggest lesson for me is that i don't think anything is handed to you in life that you can't hands. as an athlete it's probably one of the toughest thing i've had to handle. i had shoulder surgery after my third major that i won nowhere. i've had to face this in the last seven months. everything -- you think why is this happening, what is the real core message. but at the end of the day it makes you stronger. i'm 29 years old. i have an incredible future ahead of me and i just can't wait to get back on the court. >> woe appreciate you taking the time to stop by and talk about it so openly, maria, thanks very much. let's head over to carson. >> come on, guys, we're on the air. get ready.

adoption today. why is adoption a good idea? >> first of all, you're saving a dog's life. when you go to a rescue or a shelter, they have such a wide variety of animals of all ages, all breeds, mixes, and they're really well equipped to guide you to finding a good match for your family. >> i'm holding mabel here. mabel is a 12-year-old shih tzu. a little problem being diabetic and some eyesight issues. this can be a difficult adoption experience for some. >> she's actually been up for adoption for a year. she's a special needs dog. but for empty nesters or they're retired, mabel could be a perfect match because she does require a little extra time. she does need shots to treat her diabetes. but other than that, she's a lovely dog. >> she's adorable. >> really sweet. >> i've got little baylor here. now, baylor is 5, a schnauzer but you said a lot of people might be tempted to get a puppy but you might try a dog like this guy.
8:47 am
raising a puppy with children is the way to go, but puppies can be very challenging for children. they're very mouthy, very jumpy, very energetic. adopting an adult dog, you see what you get. you get to know if they're good with kids. oftentimes they're house trained and a lot calmer than a puppy. >> i've got grayson here. grayson is a great dane. and this guy is okay for an apartment? >> you would think he w but a lot of times the very large breeds like graeat danes r greyhounds are suitable for smaller spaces because they tend to be couch potatoes. they need lots of exercise but when they're inside it's not like they romp around. this is molly, a blue heeler. this is an example and you can't tell right now because she's so chill of a very energetic dog. so if you like to go camping or hiking, this could be a very
8:48 am
right now, are there other ways you can help? >> shelters and rescues across the country need us to donate money but also donate products. whether it be towels for bedding or toys for the dogs and the cats. and there's other ways you can help too. you can donate your time, you can volunteer. and probably one of the easiest ways to help is just by pressing a share button, sharing a picture of a dog or cat that's up for adoption. it makes a difference. thank you so much. >> thank you. >> let's go to carson in the orange room with more. >> some great dogs out there, guys, thanks. speaking of october, it is subaru loves pets month. they're going to be hosting pet adoptions, toy drives and so much more over the next couple of weeks. we're working with subaru and their #makeadogsday to celebrate all the way people are making a difference with animals. we'll start with al roker and
8:49 am
people are sharing pictures of their adopted pups. we've got another one from renee. this is my rescue, penny, adopted two and a half years ago. she's my princess and my heart. she definitely lives the good life now. this is a nice sentiment coming in from kate. this is bailey. he rescued me just about a year ago. i can't imagine my life without him. now to keep sharing your pictures and we're going to be supporting this cause, use this hash tag, #makeadogsday. coming up next, we are baking with mark abobitman. his key for making the perfect sugar cookie. coming up first, this is "today"
8:50 am
8:51 am
we are back now with today food. we're about to master the art of perfect cooking with our help of mark bitman and his new book "how to bake everything." great >> you tackle all kinds of baking. you keep it simple. >> as usual, and the idea is not only is there margin for error, you can improvise, you can play around. once you learn a few basic techniques, you're in business. it's not any harder than cooking. >> as i mention you cover all things but we are doing cookies today, sugar cookies. >> we're doing cookies like 12 ways. so we cream butter and sugar like this.
8:52 am
and just egg, sugar, salt, flour, vanilla extract, butter. let's turn this off. >> go ahead. we're going to lift this up a little bit. >> yeah, go ahead. >> add an egg. >> perfect. some vanilla. >> and our flour. >> we go back at it now? >> if we're doing it, we might as well do >> okay. >> salt and baking powder. and then you can just let this go. you want it combined. you don't want to overwork the dough because then cookies get tougher. >> how long should the dough take you? >> five minutes. and in a food processor, no time at all. >> all right, perfect. here's what it looks like when you're finished. >> now you have three or four options. one is -- if you have time and you can refrigerate it in between then and now, it makes
8:53 am
options. one is to roll it out. and you take a floured board or saran wrap or parchment paper and you just roll it out and you want to get it to the place where it looks like that. >> and that's because you're going to use i cookie cutter? >> there are two options. you have it rolled out, you can do a cookie cutter. and obviously all kinds of fun shapes for kids, it's halloween and hs everybody knows this, when you cut them all up, you recombine the dough and start over again. the thing that's actually the easiest is to roll it into a log. saran wrap really helps. this could be refrigerated for an hour or two or frozen forever. then when you're ready to cook, you just start cutting slices and that's the easiest thing. before we run over there -- >> you can make little balls out
8:54 am
>> all right. now let's talk about what we do after we bake them? >> they bake at 375 for less than 10 minutes. these are fast. and this is pure really good ingredients and simple as can be. now you can drizzle, this is a white frosting or a caramel or some jam or chocolate, just drizzle or decorate. >> guys downstairs, how are these going? >> oh, they're going. going, going, gone. >> we like them. >> you've got a little frost >> this is an improvised pastry bag. take a plastic bag, fill it with frosting, cut the tip off and squeeze it out. >> i like the way you tip in chocolate over here. basically the same and they are pure goodness. mark, thank you very much. good to see you. again, the book is "how to bake everything." you can get this recipe at
8:55 am
celebrate a few birthdays. >> i've got jelly and frosting all over my hands. speaking of jelly, let's get right to the smucker's jar and see who we're celebrating today. first up, happy 100th birthday to glen bru baker. he is from frederick, maryland and still volunteers for the local fire department. lorraine mcmertry is 104 years old. when she was 100 she served as the grand marshal in her hometown happy 100th birthday to ak el du jay. he's a retired fireman and loves to go on daily walks. evelyn atkinson is 100 years old and enjoys cooking and spending time with her family. janet kelly is also 100. she's a retired math teacher and holds a ph.d. in education. and a happy 100th birthday to
8:56 am
store and didn't retire until he was 93 years old. you can keep the celebration going at >> when i say you've got to be careful you don't spill on yourself, savannah. >> she has a smucker's segment on her dress. >> i have jelly all over.
8:57 am
this is 9news. >> hi, everyone, i'm gary shapiro with this 9news update. one. key suspects from the big 4-20 week sex trafficking sting will be in court today. here are a long list of charges against him. pedro davalos was arrested along with 34 other adults back in april. nine adults were arrested for trafficking, 26 for prostitution. law enforcement officers say they rescued five children during hundreds of evacuees will be able to head back home as the beulah hill fire near pueblo continues to spread. so far it has burned eight homes, 400 firefighters are already there. federal teams moved in today. a federal command team is going to bring more resources and more money to help with that firefight. marty joins us now with the weather forecast. the wind dying down a little bit today. that should help them out. >> it will help them a bit and cooler air tomorrow will also help.
8:58 am
tonight as the front goes through but that will be during midnight to about 5:00 a.m. so that's a little bit of an advantage for them. late this afternoon we will start to see showers reform in central and northwesterly and western colorado. gets cloudy around here this afternoon and this evening, though i think it will stay dry in the front range. we may have a few showers over the extreme northeastern plains and a lot of that moisture you see that's forecast for the mountains will fall in the form of snow above 8000 feet it looks like all snow with the heaviest snow in the flat area. for us clouds thicken, temperatures stay nice, cloudy. today a few very, very light rain showers here but gary, tomorrow during the day from morning to mid-afternoon we will actually see wet snow in the foothills and i think folks will get excited about that. but as you can see from the weekend that's going to melt
9:00 am
this morning, cynthia nixon back on the small screen with an exciting new role. also check out all the hot new gadgets we have ponied up for fall and we'll take you inside prince's paisley park es. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today's take" with al roker, tamron hall and billy bush. live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. >> welcome to "today" on this wednesday morning, october 5th, 2016. al is at paisley park in minnesota. tamron is here. she is freezing. >> i'm freezing. it's that time of the year.
9:01 am
warm where you feel this transition outside. but whenever you're inside your office, they don't realize it. we did a story last year on men versus women and the temperature difference, how we process the work environment. some people say put a jacket on. you run hot? >> can we get a wrap? do we have a wrap? >> yo, i'm here. i just rapped. okay. what did you do yesterday? i saw video. >> i had my blind date stranger. >> should we call it a blind date? clarify what you mean by that. >> check this out. so last week i'm walking across the plaza after the show is over, i've got my sneakers in hand and going to the gym to work out. kind of a standard routine. i saw this woman, hi, how are you doing, we take a selfie, which is standard. we're chitchatting and she said i'm starting to work out too. i'm kicking it in on my health. i said that's great, good for you. she said it's my 30th birthday
9:02 am
burpies on my 30th birthday. >> they're tough. >> i said that's fabulous. i tell you what, stranger, you and i, next tuesday is your birthday, how about 30 burpies in front of 30 rock on your 30th birthday and i'll join you, 10:05 a.m. tuesday, see you there. i thought for sure -- >> she wouldn't show up. >> she's a fan but you're a stranger. maybe she didn't want to do 30 on 30 birthday. >> like it was nice to meet you, let's take a selfie, but i'm n sure i need to do jumping jacks out in front of the building with you. i never thought she'd show. she never thought that i would show. >> there was doubt, there was doubt. >> nobody had faith in the other one. well, i walked out there, looked around. at first i didn't see her and then there she is. >> now, you didn't even know her name yesterday. >> no. >> when i asked you her name, you said i don't know.
9:03 am
she was here for a week with her mother. >> so this is her vaca. >> the last day of her vacation and it's her 30th birthday and she's kicking off the best decade of her life. and she's a sweetheart. i told her, by the way, next week is my birthday, i'm turning 45 on october 13th. so i said, hey, if you want to come back, 45 burpies in front of 45 rock on my 45th if you want to join i don't think she's going to come. something tells me it was a one and done. >> listen, andrea, 30 burpies, i can do five -- i can do two. >> let me see it. >> absolutely not. you'll never see that on tv but congratulations to her. awesome. i love that. >> i like it, just a random human interaction. it was fun, it was sweet, it happened and it's gone. i'd like to see more of those. >> i love it. that's why i love the plaza.
9:04 am
i love our plaza because people can come down and you just -- you have no idea. we've talked about wanting a live audience for the show because it's nice to talk to you through this thing, but to get a hug from you guys or say hi, it's so major. i love it. >> i've got to tell you, sometimes i leave here, you have to go do a political show on msnbc as soon as we're done here. sometimes i casually stroll back to the office and i photo tourist photographs. i just pop into people's frames. >> i love that. >> it's a nice head clearer. >> i like that. i like that idea. >> so we have new details on kim kardashian's investigation. monday around 2:30 a.m., five masked burglars wearing police jackets entered the building. no security on duty, just an overnight receptionist. they bound him, so i guess he's
9:05 am
two of them up to kardashian's suite on the second floor. they gagged her, bound her, put her in the tub, as you know. according to e! news, her close friend and hairstylist was also inside the suite but in a different bedroom. she heard the commotion. she runs to a different bathroom. she can't call 911, she tried. so she texts the bodyguard and said this is what is going on. >> some peoplav you text and not call. in my home, i have blind spots where i can text but a call won't go through. >> really? >> absolutely. i have two spots in my home. i didn't have a land line. i now have a land line because you can have these blind spots. i know when i reported on it earlier, a lot of people zeroed in, how can you text and not call? well, that can happen, firsthand here. >> text isn't going to do, right? >> now we're talking about can you text 911 and neither of us
9:06 am
bodyguard. she was in duct tape around her legs. she broke through, ran into her friend, simone, and this is terrifying, told her to jump off the balcony to get free. >> but what story were they at? >> the second floor. >> could be a stress fracture. >> that's still terrifying. "people" magazine reported the members of the paparazzi assigned to follow kim during paris fashion week recalled two hanging out there. >> that's odd, though. these are the guys, there's like 17 15 to 17 photographers that follow kim. they're on kim kardashian detail so they know everybody in the detail. they notice these two other guys. this is the paparazzi working with her security. wouldn't it be odd if the paparazzi, who we assume are these pesky, you know, rodents that follow kim wherever she goes and make her life so difficult, all of a sudden there
9:07 am
who these burglars are. they notice the two guys, they're working with police right now to identify them. there was a gray fiaf at -- fiat at an event and later on it was there again. >> that's krcrazy. for those of you who are probably tweeting we talk about kim kardashian so much and celebrities so much, the supreme court, justice stephen breyer, me robbery during arguments in a bank fraud case yesterday. basically he was giving a comparison about stealing something and he said, you know, if the robbery had happened with kim kardashian and the robbers took the jewels, that's a justice on the supreme court yesterday invoked the name of kim kardashian during a conversation. so there you have it. it was good enough for a justice of the supreme court, it's good enough for our four minutes we gave it. >> maybe she didn't come into the debate last night. did you watch the vp debate?
9:08 am
i watched the debate. they called it the interruptionfest. >> bland combat. >> thrilla in vanilla. but let me tell you, the first three minutes -- here i am. i have a little debate ritual so you can watch twitter and i can take notes. i settle in and three minutes in tim kaine is like swinging. he was interrupting. >> he couldn't help himself. >> he was just on fire. mike pence, governor pence stayed calm throughout the debate. he's getting high pr versus fact. pence denied some of the things that trump said, blah blah blah, but the bottom line is it was not blanda bland combat. >> and people say that vice president -- i would assume if both presidential candidates are as unpopular as the polls show, then you would think that this would matter a lot. in donald's case, i think his campaign manager, paul manafort, the old one, said a long time
9:09 am
states and he's going to have pence be the quarterback and run the ceo kind of role. chairman of the united states, i didn't know you could run for that. so i was looking at pence to see, okay, if this guy is calling some shots, what's he like. he was definitely under control. i think kaine, my impression was, there's so many things that donald has said that he wants to call him out on and i get it. he was like -- he was so hard to keep in. we've all been in that situation where it's like -- yeah, but -- that. but you know what's interesting, katy tur, our campaign embed who's with donald trump, now says because of the insiders that donald trump is now bothered by the fact that governor pence is getting high praise. that's what katy tur is reporting now. so it's like you're darned if you do, darned if you don't. so according to the late-night polls he did better, like 48-46 or something, pence won the debate.
9:10 am
can't make it up. >> i think it's -- i would expect donald to say he won the vice presidential debate. sir, you won't there. no, but i won. all the online polls, snap polls say. up next, two stars who have been making headlines. brad pitt and mary ann coutillard. smoking with chantix. smoking's a monkey on my back. it was, it was always controlling your time, your actions, your money. it had me. it had me. i would not be a non-smoker today if it wasn't for chantix. along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. chantix reduced my urge to smoke some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. some had seizures while taking chantix. if you have any of these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history
9:11 am
don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you have these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you have heart or blood vessel problems, or develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery. most common side effect is nausea. it's me in control now. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you. ? ? ? and off you go, ? ? ? and off you go, ? ? ? and off you go, ? for every step, every stride, every start, begin strong with the lasting energy of 100% whole grain quaker oats... and off you go. gary, gary, gary...

9:13 am
back now with more of "today's take." at 9:00 eastern, just about 12 minutes ago, the trailer for "allied" starring brad pitt and marion cotillard is out. we're trying to turn this around so in minutes you'll be able to see is there any chemistry between -- >> oh, don't say that. you know how i feel about that. >> don't tell me you're not going to look a little extra close to see maybe. >> no. because i feel sad for mayoron -- marion cotillard. she's pregnant with her boyfriend's baby. >> i'm still watching the "fifty shades of grey" trailer. chrissy teigen and john legend moved into a new hollywood pad, they're obviously doing really well, owned
9:14 am
about the former owner. >> did she leave anything behind? >> trust me, i looked. the one fun thing that does happen every once in a while is i get a bill of hers and i really want to somehow give it back to her. so i tried to bring it to the grammys and john said, no, that doesn't look cool, please don't, you're embarrassing me. rihanna, you owe $18 to begotti, i think. >> you're opening her mail? >> i think that's the number, yeah, maybe, okay. she gets a lot of fan mail. >> you open the fan mail? >> i don't get it to the house, i don't get my own to the house. >> you know that's illegal, right? >> is it? >> you can't open people's mail? >> really? but it's my house now. >> no. you cannot open other people's mail. >> really? >> yes. >> okay. has this ever happened to you? that's the question. >> yeah.
9:15 am
was there for ten years before and, yeah, i got her mail for a long time. >> did you open it? >> no, i threw it away. >> see, i've moved lots of times. i move a lot. and my last place i do shutterfly. i sent pictures from my vacation to my old home by mistake, so the people who live there now got my pictures. >> oh, nice. >> and they never gave them back to me. was with. and it's like i am mortified that these pictures were opened. >> there aren't any news or anything, right? >> no! who does news and prints them on shutterfly. >> i mean with dolphins. >> those are all in the cloud where they get stolen. no. i just wonder the people who live in my house, why haven't you sent me my pictures?
9:16 am
wait no more. your first look at the new trailer for brat pit and marion cotillard in the new film "allied." >> when the war is open, i don't know where i am. >> we found each other. >> you were different with me last night. >> different? >> like you were angry. >> she's the mother of my chil >> you were late. >> when the war is over, you won't know where i am. >> hey, what happened to my kiss? >> whoa.
9:17 am
movie. the action scenes, i love it. you see the guy with the scarred face in there? who was that guy, what happened to him? >> so the scarred face guy is what you saw? >> that's what i saw. i saw a thriller. >> what i saw is undeniable heat. >> they're actors. they're actors, that's what actors do. i'm still -- the plane, why was that plane flying through there like that. >> could you completely compartmentalize a heart passiona lap and put that aside? that's a heavy line of work right there. >> but that's what they do for a living. i couldn't do it. i watch some films and i say well, how -- is your spouse sitting there watching you make out? i don't think i could do that. >> i think there's some heat. there's some heat in that movie. >> dylan, i know you've got important weather. you're tracking the storm and a lot of evacuations. >> yes. through florida, up into georgia, south carolina, and north carolina, all under alert
9:18 am
hurricane matthew getting closer and closer. its winds have dropped to 115 miles an hour. the mountains of cuba ripped the storm apart a little bit but it is forecast to perhaps strengthen back into a category 4 storm as it moves through the bahamas. this is where our concern is really for the united states. friday morning at 2:00 a.m., 130-mile-per-hour winds just off the coast of southern florida. and then as we go into saturday morning, it's just off the coast of jacksonville, florida. if this shifts a little farther to the west, we could see in the meantime we're looking for as much as 7 to 10 inches of rain. also a storm surge of 3 to 5 feet, coastal flooding as well. we'll keep an eye on it as it continues to move closer to the carolinas. that's a look at the weather across the country, now here's a

9:32 am
