5:43 pm
young athletes. >> reporter: a successful broadway producer is making a difference in the lives of inner city kids and she's doing it through basketball. kids from grades one through 12 are able to play basketball in a program on the upper west side thanks to rose, a tony award-winning broadway producer who has turned part of her attention to helping inner city children. in september, she started a basketball program called epic which stands for every player is crucial. 25 percent of the children who pay to participate in the program attend private schools in the city while the other 75 percent can play for free. their cost is covered in part through grants and donations. >> i want to create opportunities for inner city kids that don't have the capability to train and link it to an academic piece so they can get basketball training, they can get their studies done. >> reporter: she says the beauty is bringing children from
5:44 pm

5:45 pm
steve: what's the deal? >> what do you think? five years, the fda has been toying with the approval process. five years later, your government has told you you can eat genetically modified salmon. steve: what does that mean? >> basically this is a salmon from -- that has been genetically modified with a type of eel-like fish from the ocean. it's being grown in panama. you have a salmon that all of a sudden where it would take four months for it to grow full term, now it does it in 1-1/2 months. it has a lot of meat. it's huge. and, therefore, it's good for the industry of salmon, good for the consumer perhaps because the prices of salmon are going to go down. the big question is is it safe? according to the scientists and the government says yes, it is. a lot of people said it has not been vetted properly yet.
5:46 pm
also the big impact is what happens if the salmon escapes the farms and ends up in the ocean? they tell me, no, it's not going to happen. dari: because? this is interesting. >> what? dari: because they made it sterile. >> but that's not -- dari: so they can't reproduce. >> according to them. but a lot of scientists say that's not 100 percent accurate because biology -- you cannot contain biology. when nature wants to get out there -- steve: things evolve. dari: we're americans. >> things evolve. do you trust? nature? pick the salmon. steve: gotcha. well said. thank you. we're short on time. let's talk about the weather and the heavy rain is starting to move in. nick: moving through for the next one to three hours across the area. you can see ahead of the rain and with the rain has been mild temps ahead of the cold front. low 60s in the city for the highs for the day. and look at this. low to mid 60s and upper 60s at philly. 62 at albany.
