good morning, i'm meteorologist bill henley. a cold start but temperatures in the 40s with the wind picking up to 18 miles per hour. clouds and sunshine today. clouds take over for tomorrow. wintery mix to start with north and west. then just rain with temperatures in the 40s on saturday. rain and 60s for sunday. the temperatures come right back down starting monday. cold tuesday and wednesday. then into the teens thursday morning. have a great day. >> and that's your latest weather. savannah? >> thank you so much. only two days into 2015 and flu
7:13 am
outbreak concern. 15 children have died as the especially dem epidemic spreads to 36 states and it could get a lot worse before the season is over. let's go to dr. natalie azar with that. wish there were happier news on the flu front. in 36 states. that's more than there were last week. we're really seeing a severe epidemic. tell us about it. >> we are. one thing that's important for people to understand we do see a flu epidemic every year. it's just when in the season it occur. >> it's earlier this year. >> a few years ago, it was determined in october that we had an didepidemic. at least we're ahead of that. one thing that makes this particularly concerning is the strain is the h3n2 strain which always historically is more virulent violent. >> so it's severe in terms of how soon we're seeing it the quality of the illness.
7:14 am
>> correct. >> also adding to it we've got a vaccine that the doctors are saying is not a perfect match. >> not a perfect match. >> for this strain. >> correct. roughly 50% of the h3n2 strain that is circulating right now is a variant of the strain that was made for the vaccine. that means if you got vaccinated and you get the h3n2 you have a 50% chance of being covered. i want to point out -- this is really important to reinforce. even though it may not be a perfect match you're still going to get partial protection. and half of you who do get it are still probably going to be protected and having the vaccine should reduce the severity and duration of your flu illness. >> which leads me to my last question. is it too late? if you have not gotten your flu shot yet, is it worth getting it now? >> 100%. you develop immunity in two weeks. the flu season has not peaked yet. january and february is probably more severe than now. it's not too late.
7:15 am

7:16 am
swords. they've been moved behind the palace gates or are now accompanied by armed police protection for the guards who traditionally protect the queen. the fear is that a lone wolf jihadist may seize an opportunity to target them. in 2013 a british soldier was killed with a knife in just such an attack on london's streets. >> obviously, it's been taken to protect particularly vulnerable individuals who are close to the public and close to tourists. >> reporter: there have been a string of terrorist arrests across the uk and intelligence sources say a number of plots have been stopped. >> what isis is particularly good at is making sure they get the maximum publicity. and what better way, of course to do that than to attack the establishment, the monarchy? >> reporter: but the royals have continued to appear in public. william and kate meeting crowds outside church after the family's traditional christmas service. a family with a long history of

8:23 am
and running was such a positive thing. it was such a challenging thing for me. and i could see myself reaching -- setting and reaching goals every time i went out there to run. i wasn't really thinking i've got to lose this weight. it was more i've got to change my life. and it really led to a whole period of personal discovery for me. >> and new year's is a good time to do it. not that long ago you decided to pick up rowing another new year's resolution. and now you have a sport. >> yeah. five years ago on new year's day, i sent an e-mail to the national rowing club and said i need to learn how to row this year. i've always wanted to do it. i started rowing and i rowed in the head of the charles, the biggest regatta in the world, competed in masters national. it's a great sport. it's been such a gift to me. >> we're sufficiently inspired. let's go through some of the tips that all of us gave. my do in the new year practice gratitude and don't lose sight of what's important. >> that's such a great

8:25 am
do take time for yourself and don't be so hard on yourself. >> and natalie talks a lot about the pressure that moms have to be the perfect mom. and i think just remembering to take care of yourself first and to not leave yourself off of your to do list is such a key thing. >> lisa delaney from "parade" magazine thank you so much. today's takeover of parade is out this sunday. we're kicking off a special month-long series we're calling #start today. if it includes making tomorrow better for yourself tune in. we'll get advice on what we're calling the four j's, joy bauer, jenna wolfe, jill martin and jean chatzky, how you can start and stay on track to lose weight get fit, declutter your life and save some money this year. if you want joy to personally help you lose weight come down to our plaza monday morning and be part of her choose it to lose it challenge.

>> that's your latest weather. let's show all the people we've got over here. huge crowds! whoo! oh baby. now let's head inside to savannah. >> all right, al. thank you so much. we've been talking a lot this morning about new year's resolutions. here is another one to add to the list. how about getting rid of some of the clutter around your house? stephanie cisco is "real simple" magazine's assistant editor. good morning. >> good morning. happy new year. >> the thing about decluttering it can feel very overwhelming. >> absolutely. >> what do you suggest to tackle it in the first place? >> number one strategy is to take it room by room piece by piece. starting with the book shelf, just take what the book shelf -- stay within the confines of the book shelf and start from there. >> i can already hear people saying my books, they're part of my identity. they're who i m what if i read it again?
8:34 am
>> if it has sentimental value, keep it. otherwise it's time to go. somebody else could use it. local school or library doesn't accept used books have a few charities in mind that you can donate to operation paperback donates to troops. cookbook s cookbooks you may not use anymore, donate those as well. and then throw away any pamphlets, any loose, tattered books. throw those away. they should not be donated. make your book shelf visually appealing by color coding the remaining books, adding a few decorative objects as well. >> do you have to get rid of -- let's say you don't really have to get rid of them but are you saying get rid of them and put other things in there? >> exactly. it doesn't have to be filled up with just books completely. leave yourself some space to keep growing. >> as we move into the closet bedroom area what do you do if it's not your area that needs to be decluttered but your husband's or your kids? >> this will give you an
8:35 am
opportunity to get new items to add to your wardrobe. maybe take an hour this weekend and do it together. make it a team project. >> good luck with that. okay. >> again, take it piece by piece. drawer by drawer as you're organizing take out items, have a keep pile things you know you definitely want a donation pile things in great condition and then if you have items that are in limbo, you're really not ready to give up quite yet, store them in a box and if you go back to look for them they deserve a spot in your wardrobe. >> pergatory, put it in the attic, basement and if you're looking for it later you can bring them back out again? >> when you put them in your closet or dresser, organize them by use, casual formal business wear and then within those arrange it by color so it's visually appealing. >> do you have a rule how long it's been since you have worn it that tells you when you should throw it out? >> if you haven't worn something
8:36 am
within two years, it's time to say good-bye. >> some people say six months. >> i think two years is a good timeframe. >> what about bags and shoes? >> those can, again, kind of explode outside of their storage box. designate one spot whether it's a basket or one shelf that all your bags and shoes can live. anything else is really something you need to take into account and figure out if you are actually going to wear. take two weeks after you've organized. see if you're going to actually wear those items. organize it. take it for a test run. if you do wear them stuff it in there. otherwise, time to donate. >> what about if you have a pretty gown? you don't want to give it away. >> something sentimental. look for an acid free storage box. don't use your everyday wardrobe to store them. store it on a high shelf in another closet. keep this for your everyday items. >> moving on to the kitchen. collection of mug that is don't
8:37 am
match. >> that's always our problem. take it closet by closet and take out the items that you don't -- you normally reach past on a daily basis for the things that you actually do use. take out the things you don't use. put them on a table. those will be donated. when it comes to special kitchen appliances and things like that you know certain things you use on a monthly basis, that's fine to leave in the kitchen and store there. juicers and blenders that you may not use, store them in the basement and attic if you're actually going to be interested in using them you'll fetch them. otherwise they go in donation. >> tough love here stephanie. >> it really is. >> start eastern if it's just starting one room? >> start small. >> do it over the course of weekends or something? >> absolutely. no timeframe. no pressure. >> stephanie from "real simple," thank you so much. >> thank you. meet the young woman surprising everyone with her football skills and her commitment to helping others too. planning your next winter getaway. is it better to drive or fly?

9:31 am
>> "gremlins" and some people said "e.t." has a couple of moments. george my son, who is 5, loves ghost busters except the first ghost they encounter in the library, the old woman who turns and screams. we don't like her in our house. >> i forgot about that scene. and e.t. there's a scene where he dies. i forgot about e.t. >> lot going on there. for me "psycho." it wasn't so much for me. but they were showing it on tv for the first time. channel 7 here in new york and my parents were going out and my younger brother is like 3 years younger, and he said do not watch this movie, especially if your brother is in the room. so immediately, they're gone -- >> of course. >> we flipped it on. and they come home. he is in a semi state of
9:32 am
catatonia. he didn't speak for three weeks and my parents were furious. >> i chose "halloween." it was kind of halloween, friday the 13th, nightmare on elm street.

9:34 am
changed her life. >> louis, a moment of pain is worth a lifetime of glory. remember that! >> he is an extraordinary human being and reminds us to put our best foot forward, to think of others to see challenges and take them face on and try to find the best in life. and he wanted this film to be a reminder to others of what they're capable of. >> so you're waiting to hear his reaction. what -- how did he feel about it? >> when i found out he had gone into the hospital i was in the editing room and i brought the film to him and we watched it together on my laptop. i was watching somebody at the end of their life watch their life remember their friends who died remember their mother and how she made gnochi remembering when he crossed the finish lines and when he held that plank up. i think he was just -- he was preparing to pass away when he was watching the film. but before i left the hospital room he told me a really
9:35 am
inappropriate joke and i thought, what? and i left the room smiling. i came in here worried about him and i was going to leave crying and instead he wanted to put a smile on my face and he wanted me to know it was okay. and he took care of me. >> that's a gift. >> and that's who louis was. louis was greater than we could ever put on screen. >> 2014 you were one of two female directors who directed big studio movies. do you hope that the door gets opened for more female talent behind the camera as opposed to in front of it? >> yes. and i'm sure it will. i know many great, talented women who just need those breaks. i've seen their work on a smaller scale. they're coming. i personally get more out of directing. i love being with the film for years and i love shepherding every aspect of it. and i love shining a camera on somebody else. and i love seeing other actors work. and i love being in the editing
9:36 am
room and protecting their performances and i love being in the -- kind of more in the field with everybody. i like to be either with my boots on and doing work. >> if i can take it i can make it. >> overall, are you pleased with what's on the screen with "unbroken"? or do you watch it and say, i should have done this? i should have done that? >> i'm sure i'll always have a bit of that. i'm pretty good at backing away. i don't see my work. i see everybody's work when i watch a scene and i think we all really came together and we did our best and it's a beautiful memory. >> a lot of people were shocked it didn't get nominated for golden globe. >> we've had lovely responses and accolades, but nothing beats the audience responding to it you know. that's obviously -- when you make this kind of a film you know all the other stuff is wonderful. but it really means nothing if the audience doesn't connect to
9:37 am
it. because this film is made for them. that would have been heartbreaking for us if we didn't connect with the audience. so we're over the moon. >> i also asked angelina about the sony hacking incident the e-mails about her. and she declined comment. >> she did a great job with this movie. she had great material to work with. louis zamperini's life is unbelievable. >> it's a sports movie, movie about survival large chunks of it at sea. >> you can tell her heart is in it. >> yeah. up next looking for a new tv new home or a raise? the best time
