fall, how was this put together here? >> well, it came in the concept of representing different types of water in the islands and the color of the blue going to one shade to another going down. if you think of a water fall, dark, light and white. >> i love it. the last thing, what does it mean to be part of this, and what are you hoping that people take away from the celebration every year? >> well, what i hope is that people come to realize that carnival is not just fun and think fun and games, it is a representation of our culture as a whole and showing our history and one thing, one day, it is giving us a chance to let the people see us as we see ourselves. >> reporter: something like a million people will be lining

this is child obesity awareness month and we spoke about getting the kids involved in a different sports. >> children should be active in the sports and the usta has been leading getting the families active with their children. we have epidemics in childhood obesity and september is awareness month and the usta is hosting events to get the kids out and active. duke: now that i'm a parent, you can see that your child emulates you and what do you say to other parents out there? >> it is important to live by example. i think that getting kids involved in sports at a young early age is important. it is not important about being great at the game, it is about
being active. >> multiple sports. we see kids focussed on just one sport now, play tennis, play soccer, play baseball, football. >> tennis is funny, i played tennis growing up and i was never great about it. what i love now, there are smaller rackets and shorter courts and bigger balls. i just want to mention, yes, it is more fun. they are doing events all over the country. go to youth tennis.com and find out where to play. duke: just a lot going on here at the united states tennis center. that is the story from outside
of the united states national tennis center. ben: duke, thank you. kerry: it is a ut a beautiful day out there. another thing, take mike up on right? mike: please. it is a great day to do something outside. have someone grill for you. it is a beautiful day coming up. now. it is nice and quiet. get out and enjoy the time out there with the family. dew points 63 at central park. 75 degrees is the actual temperature at newark. 67 is the temperature in allentown. 74 bridgeport. 75 montauk. temperatures are above normal. normally this time of the year 79 degrees. dew point, this number dropped
down just a hair at 62 central park. 64 newark. 63 belmar. the dew points are hanging in the range of getting sticky outside. it is worse as the days are to come and a southerly wind and bringing in the clouds and the moisture and the heat and humidity building up. ahead of the cold front that is dropping into the town and that takes two and a half days to get here. for now good. high pressure is in control. nothing is going on here for the next 24 hours or 48 hours. a southerly wind and clouds are returning here headed to wednesday. not too much is happening in terms of rain for us until we get to later on wednesday and thursday when the cold front and more of the moisture is feeding up to the northeast and the tristate. some showers at that time. leading up to it, nice and dry,
especially today. weekend. if you are going to the beach or boating, it is a great day for it. the only challenge, a moderate risk of the rip current. we have had issues, and end it on a safe note. if you are seeing someone out there in trouble, watch out for them. often times the life guards are backing down it is because it is coming to the end of the season. sunny skies and up to 84 midday, up to 88. we could use the rainfall, but it is not happening. we can looking at the 7 day, 88 today. 90 tomorrow. sticky tomorrow as well. staying sticky tuesday through thursday and the best chance of rain on thursday. not looking like it is taking us
out of the deficit. cooler headed to sunday this upcoming weekend. happy birthday to tina. you are checking us out this morning. and happy labor day to you as well. ben: thank you, mike. we are honored to be joined by voices in comp temporary art. author. >> the first novel in 7 years. thank you for being us here on "good day new york." such an honor to meet you. >> thank you. >> tell us about the book and what inspired you to write it? >> it is a like a fairy tale of new york. it is about the monsters.
no, i thought, i arrived here 16 years ago, and when you come you bring in the baggage, like a bunch of stories and literary, stuff of where you come from and that was india and there is a wonderful tradition of fairy tale and fables and let me see if i unpack the bags and let it loose on manhattan what would happen. it is kind of a sort of war of the world story. it is suggesting another world where the genies live. >> you add up the knights and this, you start by saying much of what is written about the genies is wrong.
>> well, they are not like barbara eden. they are terrifying creatures and powerful, and they are ancient stories. sort of pry mortal tales of terrible creatures. ben: you have the characters with unique powers, it is almost like a super hero franchise in the making. >> i hope so. hollywood, are you listening? it is also, the thing is, at the heart of it, a heroin rather than a hero. i have a female character at the heart of the book and princess who is one of the good guys, she's not liking the fact that her colleagues are devastating
the earth and she actually comes to the defense and falls in love with earth people on the way. >> there is a character in the book, a 12th philosopher and that has special meaning in your family. >> he was a very interesting figure and lived in spain, he tried to change the philosophy of his time away from what we call fundamentalism towards a much more rational logic based moderate kind of philosophy and my father was so impressed with his thought and he channinged the family name. my grandfather changed the family name out of respect for him.
then i found that out and dad was right. >> there are a lot of under currents in the plot about what is going on in the modern world today, the battle between societies of reason and fundamentalism and science, i want to ask you about a couple of current events, a lot of in the news about the deal with iran and the possibility that the u.s. could open and normalize the sanctions, you were a subject of a faya and called for your murder and what do you think about opening up iran? >> i have a some what complicated view of that. what i think, we have tried war, it is almost the 14th anniversary of 9/11 and we have tried war and it is not working so well for us.
the world is not a safer place because of the ventures. so i think, you know, try peace. the test is really that is only the test in doing of it if the iranians keep to their side of the agreement, then it is a good agreement but the question is how much will they and will they be transparent and allow the inspections and do all of that. i don't know. >> nobody knows. >> something i want to ask you about, you were active on social media and you have a million followers on twitter and what is that like interacting in that way? >> it is kind of fun. a million sounds a lot. i was on tv last week with justin bieber. i like it because if you are a
writer, it is not like being a performer and seeing the audience. if you are a writer you don't have a lot of moments interacting with the readers. twitter is a self-selecting group. it is nice to talk to them. ben: one more question, do you have a concern that free speech is threatened in the world today? you spoke out after the shootings in paris and saying that these people had nothing to apologize for and some saying they should apologize because of offending. > put it like this, what would a respectful cartoon look like? no such thing. if we are such things in the world just deal with it. i do think that there, it is a bad moment for free speech. it is being attacked around the
world. violence. here is the problem is political correctness. trigger warnings and books and universities, that is a dangerous way to go. if you are, you know, i can't do my job unless i have freedom of speech and one of the reasons we came to live in america is because of the first amendment, it is the most valuable thing about america in the world and that is the great guarantee of the freedom of speech. >> the book is out tomorrow. thank you for coming in. off couple of signings, tomorrow night 7:30-9:30 in brooklyn. next week... upper west side. nice to have you here. >> thank you.
ben: he's one of the hottest dj's of the caribbean music. he's joining us in the studio this morning. dj norrie. >> >> right now he's here on "good day." so you are from east flat bush jing? >> i grew up in west indian community. >> what is the pa rated and the celebration mean to you? >> it is all jen res. everyone is coming together with a big festival. showing the creativity from your island. it is like crazy, all fun though.
