more dancing, matt. the "today" show is next. happy new year. year. with music and fireworks lighting up the night surrounded by family and friends, the world greets a new year today, friday, january 1st, 2016. ♪ good morning, everyone, welcome to today, a brand new year on this friday morning. happy new year guys. >> happy new year. >> good to see you. here we go again. we finished a period where we looked back at the stories in 2014 and now we gear up for what
lies ahead we already know one of the stories dominating that includes the presidential race. we'll break down where things are standing and we'll tell you what you can expect moving forward this year. >> also we will revisit the top stories for the year that was with a look at how we covered them here. >> an interesting look back. let's get the story of the moment. chanel jones is in this morning. good morning and happy new year. >> officials are still trying to figure out what caused a massive fire that engulfed a high-rise hotel on new year's eve. it's blocks away from the world's tallest building where they held a new year's eve fire celebration despite smoke from the fire. the 36 story hotel and apartment building caught fire a couple of hours before the midnight fireworks show. according to officials 14 people were injured in the fire.
>> the new year's eve party went on in germany after a threat. they received information about a concrete threat of an isis susz side attack. still thousands of people flooded the city streets at midnight to welcome in the new year. back home an alleged isis supporter is arrested and accused of planning an armed attack in upstate new york on new year's eve. he went to a walmart on tuesday to buy supplies for the operation. they bought ski knives, duct tape and ammonia. some communities are bracing for the peak of flooding that already damaged homes and businesses. miguel is in st. louis. >> good morning. the mississippi river has been cresting overnight. it is still slowly rising in this area. there's good news and bad news
here. let's start with the good news. there's not been catastrophic damage and most of the heavies in this area are holding however there's plenty of bad news as well. about 150 homes in this area have been damaged. nine levies have topped over. there's certainly considerable destruction here. death toll is at about 20 with four more people still missing. it will be another day when people are on edge up and down the mississippi here as this river crests. the big question will be will the river banks and levies hold in the days ahead. back to you. >> thank you. and then there were two. college football's national championship game is now set. alabama had no problem at all in it's cotton bowl match up against michigan state. jay coker threw a pair of touchdowns for the crimson tide in the 38-0 win and in the orange bowl it was top ranked clemson with a big victory over oklahoma. the tigers scored three touchdowns in the second half and went on to win 37-17. clemson and alabama will play for the national title on january 11th.
let's take a look at the weather. much of the nation will be dry for new year's day. it will be mainly sunny and cool in the west. areas in southern texas and new mexico will see clouds and rain mixed at times with sleet. parts of the southeast will also see rain from florida, the florida panhandle to the carolina coast. around the great lakes expect breezy and cold conditions with lake effect snow. we should also say some areas in northern new york could see one to two feet of snow. buffalo could see between 2 and 4 inches of
i'm first alert meteorologist brittney shipp. our temperatures 44 to 47 degree, mostly sunny, breezy and colder than what we saw yesterday. this is just the beginning. plus we'll see our wind speeds out of the west 20 miles per hour. we'll see a cold wind into saturday. we stay cold, with lots of sunshine on sunday. take a look at monday and tuesday. our day time highs do not make it out of the 30s. have a great day. that's a look at the weather on this new year's day. now back to savannah. >> chanel, thank you so much. we're getting 2016 started by looking ahead to the year in politics and the fight against terror as well as the economy. >> as we mentioned the marathon race to the white house is getting more intense with the iowa caucuses fast approaching.
chuck todd is nbc's political director and moderator of meet the press. happy new year. good to see you. >> finally. >> this is the election year. everybody is talking about it. it's still fluid. before we get to the individuals in the race, chuck, at what point in the coming year will things start to really take shape? >> actually i think it's going to take a long while. it may be until after the conventions. it may be finally in labor day it will take shape. this is the culmination of 15 years of voter anger and mistrust and it's all culminated in this career. this is why we have donald trump. >> let's get specific about that. by the way, last year at this time donald trump was not on your list of people that we would talk about. >> we didn't take it seriously. >> it's amazing to see how he dominated the political calendar. so the question is what is his path to nomination?
>> it's to keep winning. his is simple because there's so many forces trying to stop him. if he is at all short a party will do whatever it takes preventing him from getting the nomination. he's not ever going to be a compromise candidate. he's not going to see people rally around his side to say he's better than x. the decision has been made so he has to win despite the forces stopping him. >> if we talk about ted cruz then he is also a controversial figure even within the republican party. do you see him as some kind of a compromise? >> i don't. but trump made him look that way. if there was no donald trump we would be talking about the top ted cruz movement in the party and everything it would take to stop ted cruz from getting the nomination. which has the establishment panicked. we can't kill them both. people say i can't believe we might have to accept the idea of a cruz nomination. but here's what one republican said to me.
at least you know on any given day what cruz might say and you can prepare for it in advance. yes he may be too far to the right to win a general election but he'll at least be disciplined and they think -- trump you have no idea what he might say. >> early states are important. let's talk about marco rubio. perhaps he's the republican that hillary clinton's campaign fears the most. how long can he go without winning. >> it depends on how he finishes. look, he can make progress if it's 3rd in iowa. 2nd in new hampshire, and it looks like it is a movement. bill clinton did it this way. he didn't win either iowa or new hampshire. he made progress and 2nd was a victor for him but he has to win somewhere. eventually you have to start winning. i think he has made a mistake and we'll see if this month plays out differently. he made a mistake almost cedeing iowa to cruz. i don't know if anybody can stop him. >> fewer questions on the democratic side. i want to go to the last 12
months of the obama presidency. what might we expect to see from president obama that he would really want to be part of his legacy. >> well, it's funny, we're going to find out in less than two weeks. we'll have an earlier than ever state of the union and i have been promised that it will be unlike any state of the union we have ever seen. it's not going to be your typical laundry list of what he's going to try to do. it's going to be something different and something bigger, in some ways trying to set the table for what he thinks should be a bigger conversation for '16. we'll see if he can pull it off. i heard presidents before saying we're going to redo how the state of the union is done. but here's why it does matter. hillary clinton wins or loses based upon how voters feel about barrack obama on election day. if he's below 45% job approval she probably doesn't win. >> get comfortable in that chair. you'll be here a lot in the coming years, chuck. >> thank you. another big issue in the election and 2016 the threat from isis here at home and also
overseas. richard engle is nbc's chief foreign correspondent. richard, good morning to you. >> happy new year. it's good to be with you. >> happy new year with you. i wish there were happier news on the foreign policy front. let's talk about this fight against isis. what a consequential year we have just been through. from the military standpoint what do you think 2016 holds? >> well, i think 2015 was a tough year and we saw the u.s. military increasingly involved. very reluctantly but steadily involved in iraq and syria. it started out with a few advisors going to iraq. and then air strikes in iraq and then air strikes in syria and ultimately special forces being deployed to both countries and i think in the year ahead in 2016, we're going to see more u.s. involvement. that this steady encroachment is probably going to keep going. >> what do you think about this
coalition? i mean in 2015 we saw other countries pulled into this like never before. do you think the coalition has a fighting chance of really getting together and really making an impact? >> that's the one thing i am some what hopeful for. everyone now sort of accepts that isis is a universal threat. you have iran saying that. russia saying that. the united states believing that. yet there is no unified policy. i think going forward logic will somehow have to prevail and that even these rivals will have to agree, at least in principle, that they need to coordinate their efforts a little bit better to try to defeat this common enemy. i hope that logic prevails in 2016. we'll see if it does. >> but the thorniest part of that of course is what is going to happen to bashar al assad in syria and there's been this diplomatic track of talks on how to manage a political solution there. what do you think we can expect this year on that?
>> i think it goes back to agreeing at least to fight isis. if everyone, iran, russia and the united states and saudi arabia and other countries can agree that is a principle that they all need to do that together, by accepting that they'll also be accepting that the question of bashar al assad does need to be dealt with. but probably needs to be dealt with later on in the year. we won't hear a lot of talk about bashar al assad. instead they'll talk about fighting isis. fighting isis together. but the assumption will be once isis starts to get weakened then you'll have to address one of the root causes of isis which is bashar al assad's continued presence and if isis is weakened and there is progress made on that front then you might see more international consensus to off ramp bashar al assad. >> so much to talk to you about. we'll be speaking to you a lot this year of course. thank you for your time. and matt, over to you.
>> savannah, thanks very much. what does the new year have in store for your bottom line? from interest rates to technology, gas prices, olivia stearns is here with the financial forecast for the coming year. happy new year to you. >> happy new year. >> can we say the end of 2015 got swallowed up in politics and the economy took a backseat so before we move forward what was your economic headline for the past year? >> i would say the headlines was more jobs, cheap gas. unemployment finally came back down to 5%. more and more people started getting a raise and gas fell to $2 a gallon. that's good news. solid year for main street. >> i want to get back to gas prices in a second but the other elephant in the room is interest rates up slightly higher for the first time in a decade. why was this the time to do it? how will it impact us? >> so the fed is basically saying that we're finally ready to take the training wheels off the economy. these 0% interest rates they put
in place in the depths of the crisis, it was an emergency measure and after 7 years they're saying the economy improved enough. gdp is growing at 2.5%. they think we're read do do away with ultra low rates and they're raising them a bit. >> but a lot of people say that could stall the economy. it's a middle ground. >> for sure. that's why they waited so long to do this. it's going to be incremental. the big risk is they raise them too far, too fast and overturn the apple cart. >> you brought up gas prices a second go. let's go back there because they're at incredible lows compared to the past decade or so. how long is that going to last? >> good news is experts say you can get used to $2 gas. oil is hovering around $40 barrel. 18 months ago it was $80. so it has come down really far, really fast and economists say because we're producing more and more oil here at home and demand globally slowing down and china is slowing down we can get used
to cheap gas. it's a big win for american shoppers and american manufacturers and good news for the car companies. one risk though energy jobs. that's been a big driver of job growth here in the u.s. if gas prices stay low we could see job losses in texas and north dakota. >> technology is an important part of the economy. what's the technology headline going to be? >> all the buzz is about these unicorns. that's what we call start up companies valued at more than a billion dollars and i'm thinking of companies such as airbnb and uber, these have these astronomical evaluations. a all of them come out of the sharing economy. the thing is there's a lot of legal questions around their business models so nobody can really say what they're worth. so stay tuned to those companies. >> so big question mark on those. >> big question mark. >> this is more specific when it comes to technology. everybody is walk around with these -- i don't want to use brand names but these wearables. these pieces of technology on your wrist. to they have a big future?
>> seems so. 2015 the year that they went mainstream. so fitbit that company is growing gang busters. they went public and 2015 was the year that apple finally came out with the watch. it's had mixed reviews but it's the first iteration. people expect more. look out for a lot more wearables. look out for smart glasses and smart clothes. clothes with threads that can track your workout and monitor your heart beat and your fitness. >> something to look forward to in a lot of different areas. thank you so much. happy new year again. >> matt, thanks. how are you feeling this morning? celebrations to welcome in 2016 raged well into the night across the u.s. and around the world. keir simmons has the wrap up of the hottest parties. >> the world celebrated overnight after what was, for many, a tough year. >> 3, 2, 1. [ cheers ] >> new zealand's countdown setting off fireworks around the
globe like a wave of good will. japan, releasing white balloons. hong kong's fireworks designed to look like smiling faces and the skies lit up across the middle east where 2015 brought little to smile about. the threat of terrorism meant celebrations were cancelled in belgium. a shame many said. >> there's no point in run agoway from it. so yeah, i think they should have gone ahead with it. >> tourists still piled into bronchusel city center to enjoy the lights and treats. in munich, german police evacuated and shutdown two main train stations after receiving terror threats. berlin tightened security. and partied on. but in paris, still scarred by october's isis massacre, they put on a show of defiance.
>> hello 2016. >> and in london, the river was the stage of a new year's extravagan extravaganza. while 2016 began in rio with 2 million people filling the beach to ring in the new year with laughter and love. >> i love brazil. >> the spotlight will be on brazil in the year ahead when it hosts the summer olympics. last night, the world looked forward with hope. a truly happy new year. for today, keir simmons, nbc news london. >> and if you were one of the people who were kind of indulging if those parties last night, we'll speak quitely. >> why are you looking at me? >> coming up the people and moments that the world couldn't stop talking about in 2015. >> and who will walk away with a

what about my family? my li'l buddy? and what if this happened again? i was given warfarin in the hospital but i wondered if this was the right treatment for me. then my doctor told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots, but eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. knowing eliquis had both... turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots.
plus had less major bleeding. both made switching to eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if it's right for you. after trying brookside chocolate, people talk about it online. love at first taste. i would liquefy it and bathe in it. curse you, brookside! your nefarious plans have succeeded. nefarious? are we still talking about chocolate? brookside. talk about delicious.

there's a lot to look forward to in the year of entertainment. >> here to preview the music shows and movies we should be watching for is the deputy editor. happy new year. >> happy new year. >> we have the golden globes around the corner. let's start with the best movie in a drama. what are you going for? >> spotlight on this one. it tells the story of a team of reporters at the boston globe investigating child abuse. it's a really tough story to tell and there aren't a lot of bells and whistles on this one. it's not like you have cgi and big car chases. it's a stripped down story and tells it so well. all about the story and the acting. phenomen if he nomin
if he nominal. >> a lot of people are looking at leo dicaprio. >> that's right. he's struggling for survival. this could be his year. >> let's look at the best actress side of things. brie larson is getting a lot of buzz for room. >> she is an actress from the indy film world and room is about a woman that is held captive in a room for most of her adult life. ends up having a child by her captor. it's all about the casting and they nailed it. >> i like the golden globes because they have best drama and best comedy category. what do you think might win in the best comedy category? >> we're looking at the martian. interesting that it was nominated as a comedy. but didn't it make you laugh? it's about an astronaut that left on mars, struggling for
survival. unless you're that astronaut. but the dialogue is really funny. the character matt damon plays has a great sense of humor. we think it's tipped to win. >> what are the highlights when it comes to looking at television? >> one of the big highlights is mr. robot. that was an interesting show that came out of nowhere. it's about a hacker turned activist. and you know it stars an unknown going into the first season and just captures critics attention. >> and you look at him as possibly best actor for tv as well. >> that's right. he is definitely leading the pack. john hamm is also up there. >> can i jump ahead to music. >> sure. >> the end of 2015 was all about adele and selling a billion copies of 25. what are we looking for in terms of releasing new music in 2016? >> we'll be see ago deing adele out. but david bowie will be back
with his 25th album. >> getting good buzz too. >> yes. the music staff loves the first single off of it. sia will be out with a new album. >> isn't kanye west possibly going to bring new music out? >> we're hoping for it. the big thing now is to drop albums as a surprise. he hasn't had one out since 2013. we have our fingers crossed. >> happy new year to you. >> coming up next, let's get personal. we're answering the questions you submitted to us on instagram. ♪ ♪ ♪ only kraft natural cheese has a touch of philadelphia cream cheese, so whatever you make, is creamier than ever. ♪ ♪

after a dvt blood clot.mind when i got out of the hospital what about my family? my li'l buddy? and what if this happened again? i was given warfarin in the hospital but i wondered if this was the right treatment for me. then my doctor told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots, but eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. knowing eliquis had both... turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising.
eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made switching to eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if it's right for you. protect your clothes fromout in tstretching, fading, and fuzz.. ...with downy fabric conditioner... it helps protect clothes from the damage of the wash. so your favorite clothes stay your favorite clothes. downy fabric conditioner. wash in the wow. what if the sweet stevia leaf was discovered... ...before the sugarcane. and everything had fewer calories. truvia. life with less sugar is just as sweet.
