7:02 am
we're told they've managed to get several of the miners out. they're lowering the basket and lifting them out two or three at a time. they became trapped at about 10:20 last night when they were headed down to the mine floor about 2,300 feet below ground to begin their overnight shift. despite overnight temps in the teens the at the surface of the mine, the mine operator cargo says none of the trapped miners is injured and rescue workers have been able to lower down water, heat packs, and blankets to keep them all warm. unclear how long this operation might take to lift all of them out, but, again, we're hearing some of them already up. sash na, savannah, guys, back to you. >> tom costello, thank you. bad news for those waking up hoping to be a powerball winner. there were no winners. that means it rolls over until saturday night.

7:04 am
going to be $550 million, they were selling more than 1,300 tickets a second. so a tremendous number of tickets being sold at $675 million. consider this, guys. that is more than the budgets of some tiny nations. that's a lot of money. >> it's well put, kerry. it's a lot of money. thank you very much. let's do politics now. donald trump is escalating his attacks on ted cruz reillterateingreiterating. another republican is suggesting it's worth looking into. peter alexander. peter, good morning to you. he praised him on twitter for announcing his canadian citizen ship 18 months ago but cruz is pushing back accusing trump of

7:06 am
>> while trump dominates nationally, a former republican party chairman tells nbc news right now the hawkeye state cruz is set to lose. this provocative news ad just hit the air. >> the politics of it would be very, very different if a bunch of lawyers or bankers were crossing the rio brand. we will build a wall that works. we will secure the border. >> now he's taking my idea for a wall. i'll build a wall. >> meanwhile marco rubio is reminding people of boots on the ground. carly fiorina kaling them out, yeah, but can you rock these? >> speaks of shoes, thousands of trump supporters may be left cooling their heels tonight. his next rally is next to the

7:08 am
me and i plan on staying deeply involved. we've got two good candidates. >> that decision was made with his head, not his heart following the death of his son beau. he concluded it was simply too late to mount a serious challenge against hillary clinton and bernie sanders. at 73 this,, this would have been his last shot at his lifelong dream. he says now, it's what i expected. matt, savannah? >> chris, thank you very much. speaking of president obama, he's giving us a rare sneak preview of what we can expect to hear during his final state of theionion address next tuesday. >> what i want to focus on this tuesday in the state of theionion address, not just the remarkable progress we made, not just what i want to get done in the year ahead, but what we all need to do together in the years to come, the big things that will guarantee an even stronger, better, more prosperous america for our kids.

8:15 am
u.p.>> and that's your latest weather. savannah? >> al, thank you so much. now to our special series start. we're helping you hit the reset button on food, fitness, fashion and finances in 2016. on today's agenda, earning more. according to career, 56% of people never asked for a raise. 49% of new employees accept the first offer they're given and do not negotiate. how do you make sure you're erp earning what you're worth and when should you ask for more? 56% never asked for a raise, even negotiated. >> it's amazing. and the reason they haven't asked is because they are afraid. did a piece of research and found that about half of all people say, they're too scared to ask. 15% said that they're afraid they're going to be fired if they ask.
8:16 am
do you know what percent of employers said they'd fire people for asking for a raise? zero. if you don't ask, you don't get. >> there is a right way and a wrong way to go about it. >> absolutely right. the right way to ask is to know what you're worth before you go in and ask the question. go to a website called glass, where you can figure out what somebody with your skills, your experience, should be paid, and then go in with a list. on paper, not your phone. on paper, these are the things i've done for the company. these are the doors i've opened. this is the business i've brought in. this is the money that i've saved you. i deserve it is not a reason to get a raise. you have to actually list what you've done for them. leave it behind so they can review it. and if they tell you the timing isn't right or that they can't give you money, know what you want instead. >> that was our next point. timing is kind of everything. sometimes, an employer says, look, you are a great employee, but there is nothing i can do.
8:17 am
>> right. in that case, say, okay, how about letting me work from home one day a week? i'll save on commuting, on gas. it puts money in your pocket. or whatever else you want. maybe additional vacation or a title bump. >> if you can't get a raise by asking, you have a couple other tips. >> switch jobs. i know, people like where they're working, but the fact is, average raises are 3% a year. you switch, you're looking at a 10% to 20% raise. that is significant. if you want to stay ahead of the salary curve, or at least on top of it, you want to be switching every three to four years. >> what about the idea of going and getting another offer, not because you want to leave, but because you think maybe that will mean you'll get a raise? >> it works. it absolutely works. but you have to be willing to go. if you're not willing to go, don't play this game. you can only play it one time with each employer. you play it once, likelihood you get money if you're valued, is good. play it a second time, your
8:18 am
>> you could be fearful of a backlash. the thought you've been out there moonlighting or trying to find another deal. >> women in particular are fearful of that backlash, which is why it's so important to ask for the raise in the right way. >> other idea you have, can't get the raise, can't get the other job, you call it the side hustle. >> a gig on the side. 1/3 of all employees are working this way. they've got an additional job. think of it as selling your free time. maybe you like watching kids. you put yourself on maybe you like walking dogs. put yourself on dog the internet is pull of opportunities like this for people who just want to make a little additional money. >> bottom line? >> our take away for today, know what you're worth, but be sure that you go out and you ask for it. again, if you don't ask, the answer is always no. be ready to explorecludeing working for other companies. when it comes to the side hustle, think about what you
8:19 am
>> selling your free time. you're the best. see you next thursday. carson, over to you. chugging the water, rachel. ready to go? >> yup. >> live performance from the great rachel platten. so excited to hear it. we'll get to that. you'll be singing -- you have more water going. did you do your warmups? me, me, me, me, me.

8:24 am
>> or fun. >> right. >> reporter: in his new film, leonardo dicaprio plays hugh glass, an explorer across the wilderness and his quest for revenge against a fellow explorer. he endures sub zero temperatures, unforgiving elements. in one of the film's most talked about scenes, a vicious bear attack. it was shot on location far from the comforts of a hollywood studio. what you see on screen is raw and, oftentimes, real. >> was there ever a moment when you thought, why did i do this? why did i sign up for this? >> literally, everyone felt that a few times a week, yes. i'm not going to lie, it was one of the -- it was probably the hardest, you know, films, professional things, i've ever done, for sure. >> one of the things you do in the film is actually eat a real
8:25 am
i wanted to believe that that was a prop, but it was real. why did you push yourself to do that? it's not like anybody would think, boy, what a lazy performance. you take that extra step. why? >> the native american actor that i was working with, hisarthur, and he was eating raw bison flesh during rehearsal. they gave me this pancake thing to eat but it didn't look authentic to me. i wanted the real thing. it was this giant liver that was incredibly disgusting. my reaction is very much up on screen, which is a nauseating one. >> fair to say, you've had your last bison liver? >> i'll never do that again. never do that again. >> there's another scene where you crawl inside the carcass of a horse. i just kept thinking about the theme of will to live. watching this film, there were ten times i would have just
8:26 am
i'll lay down and give up. how did you tap into that in your character, that absolute relentless will to live? >> when i watched this movie for the first time, i said, my god, the perseverance of the human species, our adaptability, the ability of life to keep pushing forward in all adversity is amazing. it's kind of displayed in this movie in a way i haven't seen in a while. because we were trying our closest to emulate these people's journeys. >> did you actually crawl inside the horse carcass, or please tell me there was a set piece. >> yeah, there was a set pete. >> thank you. i don't think i could take it. >> reporter: something that wasn't a set piece, dicaprio's beard. >> how long did it take to grow? >> four months or five months. but then i kept it for like a year and a half. i lived with that thing for a long time. >> seems to take on a life of
8:27 am
>> it became like a partner, like a life partner. >> reporter: now, all eyes are on dicaprio's chances during this year's award season. >> got to get off this boat. >> reporter: at this weekend's golden globes, he's nominated for best performance by an actor in a motion picture drama, a category he won in 2005 for "the aviator." for the elusive oscar statue, this year, he's considered a front runner. >> i'm very proud that a movie like this got made. it's very, very, very rare to see films that are this ambitious coming out of the hollywood studio system. so i'm sort of on a tirade, trying to promote this because i want to see more films like this out there, as a fan of movies. but as far as awards are concerned, the truth is, there's a lot of peace of mind in it because you really realize that you ultimately have no control over these things. >> is it something you hope for
8:28 am
>> like i said, you know, honestly, i do these movies because i really love movies and i want to make great movies. all that is totally, totally beyond your control. it really is. >> i'll see you at the golden globes. do you have your outfit? >> i have no idea what i'm wearing. probably the same boring black suit, as always. >> me, too. boring black dress. see you there. >> all right. >> we did the deep conversation and then i'm like, what are you wearing? >> they did the bison eating liver just once. >> one taker. >> it's incredible. don't you agree? >> riveting. he throws himself 110% into the role. >> all of them did. >> unbelievable. >> it is gory. a lot of, particularly, women, i was not looking forward to watching it, but i'm glad i did. >> a lot of guys, too, by the way. >> it was incredible. >> more impressive is another film from leonardo where he is absolutely incredible.
