7:01 am
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 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
just continues to get more and 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 pin 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 total of 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
very much. 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 is churning towards the u.s. 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 the relief effort.
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 hitting parts of jamaica. hardest hit, haiti's rural southern peninsula where many ignored evacuation warnings and rode out the storm in a shack, a key bridge washed away. floods and homes. 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. as we said, here at home millions up and down the east coast are preparing for matthew with states of emergency in
7:06 am
carolin carolinas. nbc's miguel almaguer is in charleston, south carolina, where evacuations 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, asked to move 100 miles inland. the governor here ordering a state of emergency as grocery stores' shelves are running low, gas is running low, the governor has said everyone needs three days of food and water ready. it is an people that should be on the move, even including lane reversals. later on today some 280 school buses 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 cancelled in half of the state here today, matt, and it's not just south carolina, but parts of florida that are bracing for 100-mile-an-hour winds. many told to be on the alert and also to evacuate up and down the eastern seaboard as matthew
7:07 am
back to you guys. >> thanks. >> we are watching this storm and have more as we go on this morning. 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 candidates mike pence and tim kaine sparred for 90 minutes last night. this was their one and only debate and the candidates used a lot of that time to attack hillary clinton and donald trump. >> so how did they do? according to a cnn poll taken just after that debate 48% felt pence won, 42% said t donald trump will hold rallies in nevada today. this is his first trip to that state since august. hillary clinton has no scheduled campaign event on her calendar. we have a lot to cover with our decision 2016 team. let's begin with hallie jackson and talk about last night's debate. hallie, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. the vice presidential candidates are back out on the campaign trail today after a debate here in virginia that was really more about the top of the ticket.
7:08 am
mike pence on defense, attacking frequently, as pence tried to play it cool and show he's a steady hand. while this debate may not move the needle for voters come november, it did reveal more about the strategy each side is hoping to show to win come election day. finally their turn to talk and the vp nominees couldn't seem to stop. >> the people at home cannot understand either one of you when you speak over each other. >> i'm just trying to keep up with the insult-driven >> you know what, i'm just saying facts about your running mate and i know you can't defend them. >> reporter: 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 trump's comments on women and mexicans. >> senator, you've ripped out that mexican thing again. >> reporter: #thatmexicanthingagain trending
7:09 am
>> don't put words in my mouth. >> and yet he is asking everybody to vote for somebody that he cannot defend. >> reporter: 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'sni who president reagan warned us about. >> senator, that was even beneath you and hillary clinton, and that's pretty low. >> reporter: on substance, a split on russia. pence, unlike trump, suggesting strikes against the russian-backed syrian regime. also unlike trump, slamming president vladimir putin. >> the small and bullying leader of russia. >> reporter: less than a month ago. >> i think it's inarguable that vladimir putin has been a
7:10 am
than barack obama has been in this country. >> donald trump and mike pence have said he's a great leader. and donald trump -- >> no, we haven't. >> reporter: pence hitting hillary clinton's e-mail and the clinton foundation controversies. answering questions about his running mate's nearly billion dollar loss in 1995 revealed in tax documents leaked to "the new york times." >> but he used the tax code just the way it's supposed to be used and he did it brilliantly. >> reporter: this morning a new interview with trump's former accountant who prepared those >> he knew that we would produce the lowest possible tax to him within the law. he never went into the details. >> reporter: donald trump's taxes likely to remain in the spotlight. but as for the debate here at longwood university, hillary clinton watched it from her home in new york, donald trump from the campaign trail out west, live tweeting and, no surprise, declaring mike pence the winner. but it's the republican national committee that apparently got ahead of itself posting its
7:11 am
you can see it on the screen, praising mike pence for certain talking points like in their words hitting hillary clinton's scandals. matt, savannah. >> all right, thank you very much. >> let's bring in chuck todd and nicolle wallace. good morning. last night you were asked what are we going to be talking about tomorrow morning and you said the next debate on sunday night. >> i left out matthew. that i am serious about. >> the storm, absolutely. but seriously what's the headline from this vp te how mike pence did mike pence a lot of good. the question is going to be did he, while he gave the trump campaign a positive headline after eight days of a debacle, did he do enough to defend trump. are we talking -- or are we going to be talking about too many areas where the two of them disagree. >> actually on that point, tim kaine went after him on taxes, on temperament, on some of the insulting comments trump has made about different groups over
7:12 am
that he had made those comments, even though they exist on tape. what's that strategy? >> yeah, i think this is where it was pence won the 90 minutes and didn't engage in the back and forth, but in the way that the clinton campaign will say, well, wait a minute, he said this, but you were 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 substance but style and tim 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
and he was picked to address 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 wt' 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 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
police say harris was pacing and 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 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
7:16 am
with the fact that he forgot 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 claims inter 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 g to court. 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

there's a reason cnbc named new hampshire the most business friendly state in the nation: maggie hassan's approach to innovation and business development. controlling spending. smart investments in education. and hassan's balanced budget was a bi-partisan "compromise" the telegraph said "worked." cutting taxes for small businesses. targeting millions to fight the opioid crisis. all with no income or sales tax. working across party lines is how maggie hassan makes new hampshire work for us. i'm maggie hassan and i approved this message. >> this is 7news now. >> christa: good morning, everybody. 7:26. we're staying on top of breaking news this wednesday morning where traffic is slow going on 495 north in marlborough after a tractor-trailer flipped over
7:27 am
highway. the driver of the tractor-trailer was injured in that crash. so let's get the latest on the traffic impact. here's danielle gersh with fast track traffic. >> danielle: thanks, christa. good morning, everyone. this is 495 northbound at route 290. you can see the two left lanes are now getting by. the right lane is still blocked. traffic still slow from exit 24 to 25. and the ramp from route 290 eastbound to 495 northbound is still closed. also not helping the situation,e on 495 northbound at exit 24 leading up to that. so definitely a major delay here, an area you want to avoid. christa, back to you. >> christa: now to the forecast with chris lambert. >> chris: a little bit on the cool side. 49 in boston. scattered clouds working on in. overall seven-day forecast, matthew staying well south over the weekend. some showers likely late saturday. >> christa: all right. enjoy your day, every

7:32 am
hillary clinton wrote the number of times trump has tweeted about rosie o'donnell, 65. number of times he has tweeted in support of his running mate, 21. meanwhile he retweeted a post that said tim kaine looks like an evil crook out of a batman movie. let's get back to hurricane matthew and its potential impact on the u.s. nbc's miguel almaguer is in charleston, south carolina. miguel, good in those evacuation orders are in place here in south carolina. 1.1 million people asked to move 100 miles inland for those residents that live along the water line here in south carolina. the historic order was issued from the governor late yesterday. at 3:00 this afternoon they'll load up 280 school buses for anyone who can't drive their own vehicle out of this area. grocery store shelves are going bare. gas lines are long. many are making a run on other

7:34 am
north. now that this storm is expected to track closer and closer to florida, now is the time to prepare. so here is a look at our hurricane wind forecast. you can see the closer you get to the eye of the storm, that's where we have your hurricane force winds, but we are still looking at perhaps 50 to 60-mile-per-hour winds just offshore, so if this were to track a little farther to the west, which the models have been trending, then we would see those hurricane-force winds make their way onshore. it will skirt right looking like north carolina will not see a direct landfall as it starts to turn out to sea. we're still looking at some of our heaviest rainfall totals across the coast of south carolina with as much as 10 inches of rain and coastal >> chris: good wednesday morning. cool start. we have quit a bit of sunshine. a few clouds backing in off the ocean a possibility. sun winning out at many times throughout the day. the high pressure building in. we'll warm it up on thursday and

8:10. ben stiller revealing his fight wi 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 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's not necessary? >> 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 nc 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, inkaucontinence 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 i can look for a problem or i 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 win 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 before.
8:15 am
like it's going to make landfall in north carolina, it will wrap its way around. >> chris: good wednesday morning. cool start. we have quit a bit of sunshine. a few clouds backing in off the ocean a possibility. sun winning out at many times throughout the day. the high pressure building in. we'll warm it up on thursday and friday. enjoyable us. take a look at the seven-day forecast. there is some tropical moisture that may come in here and give us rain late saturday or saturday night. it does look like the brunt of 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 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 with yaerd wa u. a hospital just charged a
8:17 am
just look at the itemized bill. 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 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
made a big announcement. >> 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 teams. 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? >> no.
8:19 am
job, i can't wait to see it. 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. 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 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 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 no to cover up doping. 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 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 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 years old that came out of 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.

8:46 am
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

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 epnergetic. 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 wou 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. >> take me home. 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

8:52 am
this or do it by hand. 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

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 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 on some of these? >> 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
