the news at noon... starts now. news at noon front door open good afternoon, i'm megan reuther. thanks for joining us. the u-s will send a small number of u-s special operation forces into syria. a senior administration official confirmed that president barack obama has authorized to deploy less than 50 special operation forces into northern syria. more is expected from white house today ali arouzi has the international talks on ending the syrian conflict that are underway in the austrian capital. for better or for worse iran has always been considered the missing part in these talks. now they have been invited to these talks, partly because of the influence of russia, partly because iran wields so much influence over the assad regime and also because iran and russia are the only two countries providing military assistance to assad. now for the first time since the

beginning of this four-year conflict, the main players involved in syria are sitting around the negotiating table, trying to talk, trying to resolve the situation in syria. and also involves regional rivals iran and saudi arabia discussing syria. but the two countries have very, very different interests in the countries that we have to see how that relationship plays out here in the talks. now iran's involvement in these talks are surely gonna complicate the removal of assad, but it is hope that iran being involved in these talks will de-escalate the violence in syria that's ripped through this country over the last four years, has cost about 250- thousand lives and displaced millions. s/ ali arouzi/ nbc news/ vienna, austria 1:03-1:14 "while these talks continue, we have to see if some sort of conclusion can be reached here but it's going to be very difficult as secretary kerry said. ali arouzi, nbc news,

jeb bush was a very strong governor, probably the strongest governor in the history of the state of florida. he was a young guy and i think there were some folks in the legislature that thought they might be able to run over him. that didn't happen. one tax cut wasn't enough- he had to do more. it wasn't enough to have 15,000 kids with school choice in florida, he wanted to have 100,000 kids. if he didn't like a project, it was going to be vetoed. it didn't matter if you were a republican.
12:19 pm
he said: 'this is where we're going, this is how we're going to reform state government...' every politician comes in talking about making change, and generally there's not much change. but governor bush made a lot of changes. he got the nickname veto corleone. if he saw something in the budget that he thought violated his conservative principles, you could guarantee it was gonna get whacked. he vetoed a bunch of my stuff and i was the senate president. the message to washington, d.c., is 'get ready...' because there will be change.

12:30 pm
geiger. the last positive case of the highly pathogenic avian influenza was announced on june 16th.. after that high temperatures and less bird migration are thought to have subdued the virus. but the toll was high.. more than 70 iowa sites.. and 31 million birds were affected.. and put into quarantine zones.. half of the egg laying industry here was affected by the outbreak.. that's clear in the iowa chickens and eggs report.. this time last year.. there
12:31 pm
was one point three billion eggs produced.. now it's just over seven hundred million. but there were worries that when fall migration began.. bird flu could crop up again.. now at the end of october, there have been no new cases. there's no clear reason for that.. but for the iowa department of agriculture.. that's let them focus on biosecurity.. and cleanup. "all of the sites that have, were scheduled to go through cleaning and disinfecting, have completed that work and that's good news. we're very close to lifting the last of the quarantines on the affected sites, so that's great news as well. but the repopulation process is going to take some time. it could be 12, 18 months before some of our larger producers are able to get fully restocked." naig says they're waiting to see how the fall plays out.. and even if there is no new case.. producers are still looking at the spring migration.. he says the industry needs to stay vigilant. harvest is estimated at 92 percent done in beans and 86
12:32 pm
percent in corn.. so market analysts are looking at.. how much is being stored. "got some green on the board here this morning. corn a couple higher, beans three to four higher. just been a choppy week, coming into today, corn was up a penny on the week roughly." "beans are around 12 cents on the week. and wheat up around 27 cents. exports were decent this week. the key here, from here on out, i think through the end of the year is demand. can china stay in buying beans consistently and keep this market propped up over nine dollars or not. and also too with corn, how fast can we go through these piles laying all over the midwest on the ground." "there's not a whole lot of fresh news out there. cash has been done for over a day or so this week, and hopefully can get pushed up into that better level next week. but it's the end of the month, last day of the week, so just kind of seeing some long liquidation here right now in the cattle trade." "it's just end of the month, last day of the week profit taking is all. see product a little bit slow yet right now despite the market being terribly, terribly oversold. but the balances i think will be sold into short term. just fundamentally there's not much out there but we will see a day, or hopefully more than a day of some relief here just based off of charts." and that's the show for today..
