fan himself friday, september 14th, 2012. from nbc news this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. and good morning. welcome to "today" on a friday morning. i'm savannah guthrie and david, as they say in korean -- >> how you doing? >> what language is that? >> i'm david gregory. matt has the morning off. >> you didn't say it. >> probably a good thing. take a look at this crowd. we knew psy's song was popular. this is unbelievable. every day is a philosophy of life, dancing, that's it. >> sunday it's "meet the press" and friday it's invisible horse dance by david gregory. people started camping out on the plaza last night.
by 5:00 a.m. that line was down fifth avenue and this morning you'll see what the fuss is about. the korean superstar psy will take to the stage to perform that. we'll try to keep up with the wild dance moves and see what "gangnam style" is all about. everybody is doing their horse dance today. can't stop. >> i was in the dressing room, you know, like practicing this morning. >> you were? >> you'd be right. >> meanwhile, another thing people are excited about, pre-orders start today for the new iphone 5. the hitch for many users is that it comes with a new charger. was that really necessary? we're going to get into that and find out what you're supposed to do with your now obsolete old connectors. people everywhere saying what are we going to do. >> you do sound a little bitter. the horse dance will cheer you up. serious news beginning in the middle east and the ongoing violence there. arrests have been made in connection with tuesday's deadly attacks on the u.s. consulate in
benghazi. more from tripoli this morning. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. officials have arrested suspects and they have several more under surveillance across the eastern part of the country, but they are not shedding any light as to who these individuals are and what role they may have played in the deadly atta. what we do know is according to libyan officials some of these individuals have been taken into custody after footage emerged at the protest which officials here say was essentially the cover that was exploited by militant groups. they are convinced so far that this was not simple police an outburst or a spontaneous outburst of anger against an anti-islamic film that appeared in the u.s., but rather a coordinated planned attack that way exploited by militant groups perhaps affiliated with al qaeda in the eastern part of libya. >> all right. that report from tripoli this morning with the latest.
thank you. it's 7:03. here's david. thank you. the violent anti-american demonstrations are not letting up in cairo this morning. nbc correspondent richard engel is there. richard, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, david. big protests that had been called for here in tahrir square this morning have been cancelled. instead, islamic parties say they are only holding symbolic demonstrations against that film that was just being talked about, the film that's caused so much controversy. you can see behind me very small crowds here in tahrir square but the situation right in front of the u.s. embassy just off this square remains tense. for a third straight day the u.s. embassy in cairo is under siege. morning, protesters threw stones and molotov cocktails at riot police who struggled to keep them back with tear gas and stones of their own. the demonstrations are small,
but violent and determined. since yesterday they haven't left the streets around the embassy for a minute, retreating and then charging back. throughout the afternoon, middle of the night and into this morning. the protesters are, by now, a mix of islamic hardliners and soaker hooligans, both with a goal of taking vengeance on the embassy for an anti-islam internet movie made in the united states that washington has publicly and repeatedly denounced. >> the united states government had absolutely nothing to do with this video. we absolutely reject its content and message. >> reporter: the protesters aren't listening to that. authorities in cairo are erecting n walls around the embassy to prevent mobs from getting close, evidence in concrete of the growing divide between washington, cairo and
beyond. there have been demonstrations against the offensive video in 11 countries so far. half of them in places where washington supported arab spring uprisings that toppled strong men who had formerly been u.s. allies. the arab spring has taken a dark turn. in yemen on thursday, protesters managed to break into the parking lot of the embassy in sanaa, destroying vehicles, smashing windows and even using a forklift to do more damage. no embassy staff was hurt. entering this volatile region now, the pope, leaving rome today for a previously scheduled visit to lebanon. so far there hasn't been any violence there. but today is friday, the muslim holy day of prayer. more protests have been called for. you do get a sense, david, that the egyptian people and the egyptian government are growing increasingly intolerant of these
small violent clashes in front of the u.s. embassy. the egyptian president again and perhaps in his strongest terms yet called on people to protect all diplomatic facilities in this country. david? >> richard engel in cairo this morning, richard, thanks very much. 7:06 and here again is savannah. thank you. the bodies of four americans killed in benghazi are being flown back to the u.s. as some of their relatives speak out about the victims for the first time. 52-year-old ambassador chris stevens died as extremists attacked the u.s. consulate in benghazi. stevens will be remembered not just for his courage but also for his hope for lippia, his passion for the region so strong, his family said it outweighed any fear he had of being there. >> he's been in these countries for so long that i haven't really reflected about how dangerous the work that he was doing actually was. he was so focused on, you know, the joyous times on his diplomatic mission. he didn't even go in to really
talking too much about how afraid he was, you know, for his life. >> while senator john mccain praised stevens as a dedicated diplomat hillary stevens remembers her big brother in a more personal way. >> he had a great sense of humor. always a jokester. >> sean smith, an air force veteran joined the state department a decade ago with assignments in baghdad, pre-toria, montreal and the hague, he was on temporary duty in libya working as an information management officer. he leaves behind his wife heather and two young children. the attacks also killed two former navy s.e.a.l.s, tyrone woods and glen doherty, both working as contract workers. thursday mourners filed in all day at his mother's home in massachusetts. his sister kate quigley remembered glen. >> he lived life to the fullest, and if you asked his friends he was their brother as well. >> for two decades tyrone roads
took on america's toughest military tasks as a navy s.e.a.l. with multiple assignments in iraq and afghanistan. 41 years old, woods was a father to due teenage boys, his family described him as someone who loved life, loved adrenaline. all four were killed in the line of duty and in duty to their nation. >> this led to fresh jabs on the presidential campaign trail. nbc's peter alexander is here with that part of the story. this is for the first time becoming a major flashpoint between the president and governor romney. >> a largely dormant campaign issue. with the ongoing turmoil in the middle east and the political fallout at home, poet president barack obama and mitt romney are trying to project strength on national security, but less than eight weeks till election day romney, who by the way authored a book titled "no apologies" is making no apologies for his sharp cricism of the president's foreign policy. while in virginia mitt romney
toned down his attacks on president obama seeking to project strength in more subtle terms, arguing the president is a weak leader. >> sometimes it seems that we're at the mercy of events instead of shaping events. the world needs american leadership. the middle east needs american leadership. >> reporter: demonstrating the bitterness on both sides, romney was briefly interrupted by a heckler. >> why are you politicizing libya? >> reporter: >> reporter: campaigning in colorado president obama took a firm stance reminding voters of his power as commander in chief. >> i want people around me to hear me, to all those who would do us harm. no act of terror will go unpunished. it will not dim the light of the values that we proudly present to the rest of the world. >> reporter: on tuesday romney blasted the administration for a statement from the u.s. embassy in cairo that romney said was akin to an apology showing
sympathy for the attackers prompting this from the president in a telemundo interview about his opponent. >> i have observed that there's a tendency to shoot before you aim, as i've pointed out. >> reporter: on thursday romney responded on abc news. >> what i said was exactly the same conclusion the white house reached which was that the statement was inappropriate. that's why they backed away from it. >> reporter: romney, who has been trailing in the polls among women, made them a major focus on thursday surrounded by women on stage. he hammered away at what he calls the president's economic failures. >> we talked about where he wants to get but not how to get there. we've watched him for the last four years, and what he has done has not helped. >> reporter: meanwhile, the president tried to gently contrast his background from his opponent. >> let's face it. you know, a mixed kid from hawaii born to a single mom is not likely to become president of the united states, but in america it can happen. >> it's not hard to figure out
which states these campaigns think will decide the election. romney in florida wednesday, virginia thursday and today he heads back to the battleground of ohio. it's familiar territory for both romney and the president. david, they have been there a combined 14 times since june, seven for romney, seven for the president. >> this is all important ohio. peter alexander, thanks very much. chuck todd is nbc's political director and chief white house correspondent, joins from us our newsroom in washington. chuck, good morning. >> good morning, david. >> let's start with foreign policy. look, how does this play? governor romney goes on attack in the middle of this crisis. was it political opportunism that is to his detriment or an appropriate opportunity to really separate himself from the president on foreign policy? >> well, i think at this point whether they can't have the timing issue back, right, this question did they go too soon, did they criticize too soon, there's certainly a debate inside, amongst some romney supporters about whether it was appropriate or not, but it
doesn't matter now. the romney campaign believes there is an opportunity here, and there's a couple of things to keep an eye on here. first of all, if you saw this morning in the "washington post," a whole bunch of romney foreign policy advisers who drew a bright line this morning, david, and they said this would not have happened on a president romney's watch which, of course, you've got the obama campaign pretty fired up and pretty upset about that, but one thing to look for in the next couple of weeks, a major foreign policy speech from romney. i think they feel like it's an opportunity, and at this point they do need to flesh this out and that they will get a lot of attention for it when they do it. >> a lot is about the context of the race. new polling out from the battleground states, take us through this including advantage the president when it comes to ohio. >> the big three states, ohio, virginia, florida. we've got new data. all of the polls were conducted sunday through tuesday before the flare-ups in the middle east, before all of that, but look at these advantages for the president. he hits 49% or 50 in all three
states. in ohio his lead is up to seven points. hits the 50% mark, both in florida and virginia, 49-44. the bigticaway is the right track, wrong track numbers in these states. all of the right track numbers went over 40% for the first time that we've been tracking, right direction, wrong direction, where is the country headed, lingering in the low 30s. i've talked to some democrats. they think this is the bill clinton bump. that convention speech he made which was the whole idea that, hey, this is where the country is. maybe it's more on the right track than you think, that may be the most northern bump from the convention. >> and that right track, wrong track, the big indicator where independent voters are. we'll keep a close eye on that. chuck todd, thank you very much. much more on this polling and the flashpoint over foreign policy when we join you for "meet the press" on sunday. we'll have a special hour on that. >> david, thanks. let's get a check of the top stories. natalie morales over at the news desk. good morning. >> thank you.

york stock exchange. good morning, mandy. >> reporter: good morning. not so much pain for your 401(k) these works. u.s. stock markets are sitting at multi-year highs after the central bank unleashed another move to help the economy. the u.s. dollar has fallen back a number of currencies and a bit more expensive to take the overseas trip. and gasoline prices in terms of the national average more expensive than a week ago and month ago at 3.87 and we hope in future weeks will come down. >> mandy drury at the new york stock exchange, thanks. a brazen burglary caught on tape at a california apple store where a group of suspected robbers slam a bmw through the store's glass doors. a man then jumps from the car and begins scooping up as many devised as he can before the car makes its getaway. unfortunately for the would-be robbers the car's license plate fell off, not a smart move, remained there at the scene leading police right to one
suspect. the 22-year-old pleaded not guilty to multiple felony charges on wednesday. not every day that a whole new species of monkey is discovered. take a look at this face. hard to believe that no one noticed this guy before. locals in central africa know him as lasoula and scientists say he looks like the owl-faced monkey, not the same species. only the first time in 28 years that a new species of monkey have been discovered for those keeping track. 7:17. back over to savannah, david and al. >> what a face. >> hear about the new apple connector? very upset about the new iphone. >> thanks, natalie. mr. roker, have a check of the weather. >> let's see what we've got for you. we're looking for a big cold front that' cold front that's causing showers from detroit all the way down to san antonio. a lot of rain with this system. anywhere from three to four inches of rain from san antonio up to springfield, missouri.
we have big changes as far as the temperature is concerned. we'll look at that in a bit. look at the temperatures in the pacific northwest, 80s with sunshine. a beautiful day here in the northeast. we have toasty weather in southern california as well. that's what's going on around the country, here's what's happening in your neck of the woods. >> good morning, i'm tom kierein. another chilly morning on this friday morning. under partly cloudy skies. more humid. temperatures low to mid-50s in most of the ea. reagan national 64, patchy fog. later around 80. a slight chance of a sprinkle tonight. a gorgeous weekend. saturday and sunday, lots of sun. afternoon highs near 80. might get rain monday afternoon into latest weather. >> all right, al, thanks. planning a trip to new york city get ready to say good-bye to your bill gulp. new york become the first in the u.s. to limit the sale of large surgeriy drinks, a move being praised by some and criticized
by others. nbc's craig melvin has the latest on this story. craig, good morning to you. >> reporter: savannah, good morning to you. barring some sort of last-ditch legal effort this will essentially be contraband here in new york city. that's because the board of health has approved that controversial plan by the mayor to ban the sale of large sugary drinks. they claim it will save lives. others say they want the government to keep its hands off its big sodas. now the whole thing could get settled by a lawsuit. in his ongoing battle against the bulge, mayor michael bloomberg has landed another blow. >> we've taken bold action in new york city because obesity is a national epidemic that's getting worse, and we're not just going to wring our hands about it. >> reporter: in an 8-0 vote the city council approved the mayor's proposed plan prohibiting 16-ounce drinks or larger. this ban affects restaurants, food carts, delis, stadiums,
arenas, broadway and movie thesers. >> it's about choice. it's about your right to make a decision in your life. >> reporter: many consider bloomberg's war on waistlines an assault on personal freedom. his may announcement about the plan prompted summer protests. >> i'm here to tell mayor bloomberg to mind his own business. >> reporter: and late-night mockery. >> i think this is less than 16 ounces, better safe than sorry. >> reporter: public opinion seems to be strongly against the ban. 68% who responded to this today.com survey think it's a bad idea. >> i think it's stupid. i really honestly do. i think it's completely unnecessary. >> i know that they are trying to say it's going to cut back on obesity, but honestly, people can make their own decisions. >> i don't think it's the mayor's place to make decisions for people about what they are going to ingest. >> reporter: but the mayor and many health experts don't think it's a coincidence our guts have grown as available drink sizes have gone from 6.5 ounces in the '20s to this.
while bloomberg insists the ban will prevent roughly 6,000 obesity-related deaths in the city alone health experts also say it's to make people think. >> it's a way for people to be mindful and see and pay attention to what they are drinking. >> like do i need all of this because i'm not going to drink all of this, does anybody really drink all of, this one person? i mean, if you do, that's a lot of soda >> reporter: ban is set to take place in march but the restaurants and soft drink industry are considering legal action to stop it. >> you can't go to your loved ones to the movie theater to buy a soda, no impact on obesity, won't impact public health at all, lessen the lines at the theaters and not the wastelines of our patrons. >> reporter: the ban here could have national implications, savannah. over the past ten years new york city has banned the use of art fashl trans fats and banned smoking in bars and restaurant and also forced chain restaurants to put calories on
the menu. it happened here, and then all of a sudden it started happening all over america. back to you. >> yeah, as new york goes, so goes the nation. craig melvin, thank you. just ahead, topless sunbathing pictures of the duchess of cambridge published by a french magazine overnight. the palace angry and invoking the name of princess diana. we'll tell you about that, but first, this is "today" on nbc.

as the couple made their first ever visit to a mosque, word that a french magazine had published topless photos of kate from the couple's recent holiday at a private home in the south of france. the palace spokesman describes the pair as, quote, hugely saddened, to have their privacy invaded in such a grotesque and totally unjustifiable manner, end quote. friday's official response from st. james palace says, quote, the incident is reminiscent of the worst excesses of the press and paparazzi during the life of diana, princess of wales, and all the more upsetting to the duke and duchess for being so. a clear aleutiillusion of the df princess diana. while the driver of the car found later to be intoxicated, the death incensed the world. prince william devastated by his mother's death and troubled by
the intensity of media scrutiny reportedly hoped to shield his wife from the darker side of life lived in public. >> you have to remember, he was 15 years old sadly when his mother died. even though this is a long lens photo opportunity, as they call, it it's still real invasion of privacy, and for him, of course, will bring back and trigger memories of his late mother, princess diana. >> the spotlight also shown recently on william's brother, prince harry, caught frolicking in a las vegas hotel room, but news of these photos comes as kate had been basking in the glow of rave reviews for her sterling performance during this, only her second overseas tour as a duchess, and just 24 hours after her heralded first speech on the international stage. >> thank you. >> a somber farewell to kuala lumpur as the duke and duchess headed to the rain forests of borneo. those at the palace say the couple had every expectation of
privacy at the remote house where they were staying and saying officials are considering what the couple's legal options might be. meantime, they say the duke and duchess have their focus firmly on the tour. david? >> thank you very much this morning. martin bashir is the host of "the martin bashir show." good morning. >> good morning, david. >> 15 years after the death of princess diana. were you surprised that this has happened? >> no, not at all. it's a terribly abysmal echo of what happened to william's mother. she was pursued relentlessly, as you know. william maintains that the paparazzi played a role in his mother's death. though nobody was actually prosecuted for that, and i think that this is inevitable because people have assumed that it's the british press who pursue the royal family with the greatest aggression, but in fact it's press all around the world that cover the royal family, and that's the issue. >> the expectation of privacy is also the issue and whether that
is at some level naive for any royal in this media environment, in this case she was at a private villa that was pretty remote. >> and the french have far more strict privacy laws than the british or the americans do. so they assume that, but you can't assume anything if you're a member of the royal family. >> it was striking to hear the royal family laid down such a very strong statement in reaction. >> unprecedented. >> unprecedented. do you think they might take legal action. is there some precedent for that? >> i don't think they will, because i think the issue is that it's in a different jurisdiction, not in the united kingdom, as i've said, and it will only in some ways make the situation play out longer than it needs to. i think the statement was aggressive because they want to assert the privacy of this couple. they were, after all, on holiday. it was just before this important world tour. princess catherine was delivering her first public speech and they had every reason to believe they would be given
prif >> i there's context of this, where prince harry most recently caught up in las vegas where he was photographed, pictures partially nude. is there a level of damage control going on now within the royal family to sort of deal with this and at least caution this new generation? >> i think that they have already worked very, very hard with each member of the royal family. i think the wedding of william and catherine was in some ways as late as it was because everybody knew that they had a relationship that was ongoing, partly because they were being prepared for this kind of onslaught. it's also a very different situation. remember, harry is the second in line, not the heir to the throne, and he's a single man. it's a totally different set of circumstances. this was a gross invasion of privacy, everybody agrees, and i think that's what has prompted the palace and the palace spokespeople to come out so aggressively against the magazine. >> all right. martin bashir, thanks very much. good to see you. >> now we'll head outside to
savannah and al. >> i've got a question. hey, sexy lady. >> how are you? >> almost fine, thanks. >> i hope my dancing is better than my korean. >> people are starting to do the dance. look at this. yeah. this is going to be bigger than denny theriault's dance party. look out. >> the weather. >> oh, ther. >> yeah, yeah. let's do the weather. whoo! we have an omega block of psy coming in here. above normal temperatures out west and the east coast. we are talking ten to 20 degrees below normal in the central plains. out west, 10 to 15 to 20

back new at 7:42. the feature on the new iphone a lot of people are upset about, the new charger. it means millions of people will have to spend a little more to make it work with their older devices and accuraciesries. nbc's kristen dahlgren is live in los angeles with that story. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. this is what we're talking about. this is the old iphone plug. it has a whole new look on the new iphone 5, so if you want your old devices to work with this, you're going to have to pay a little more. the iphone 5, thinner, faster, 4g, new features, new plug. >> so a lot's changed, and it's time for the connectors it evolve. >> reporter: the 5 will have a new eight-pin connector, different than the 30-pin version that's been standard since 2003. apple calls the power and dock connector the lightning and it is quite a shock >> i think they do it on purpose to buy new stuff.
>> reporter: while the new phone will come with the new charger, the problem is all of those old apple products, ipods, ipads, docking stations, car chargers won't be compatible without a $29 adapter. >> the short run, yeah, there's a little bit of a hit you might have to take if you want to use your old products with the new new phone. >> reporter: for apple and aftermarket vendors that could mean big bucks. think about it, 40 million iphone 5s are expected to be order by the end of the year. 29 buck adapter for each is almost 1.2 billion. >> any way they can get some extra money out of you, they will. >> reporter: and while experts say the technology upgrade was long overdue, it begs the question what do you do with all of those old chargers. >> reporter: we're fa >> we're facing a new era of little random white cords we find in a drawer or something. >> reporter: outdated power sources, admit it, you probably have more than a few lying around. >> i can't keep track of all the
cords. they sit in a pile. >> really frustrating. nice that i could have something to plug everything into. >> reporter: in europe they do, european union law mandates cell phone manufacturers all use micro usb chargers, even a micro adapter for european iphones but not here in the u.s. >> it's an absolute jewel. >> reporter: as for the new lightning, apple said the smaller connector was necessary for a thinner device, and judging from pre-order projections millions don't seem to mind paying the price. so those pre-orders start today. shipping on the iphone 5 starts on september 21st. savannah, something tells me that apple isn't too worried about stopping people from buying. >> i guess not. kristen dahlgren, thanks. mario, good morning. >> good morning. >> let's start right there. a lot of people are a little mad at apple. >> right. >> they will still go out and buy it. >> absolutely. >> and apple knows this. >> like the nfl team that
constantly wins the super bowl, and you actually want another team to win so it is a good device, and a lot of people will pay the money for the device and will suck it up and pay for the adapter. in this economy it's not a smart publicity move, really not smart for people's pockets, but really they had to make it smaller because the phone needed to be thinner, so the 30-pin port that they have here now goes to eight pins. >> okay. a lot of people are saying why couldn't you have used that micro usb that works on the blackberry. >> that's right, and that's where it has a rub with me. holding different devices that all would use the same micro usb adapter. the micro usbs, used on e-readers and digital cameras and many of us have these ports and in europe you can't sell a phone there without a usb connection because there's a standard so why not make that adopter sold in europe available in the u.s. >> the phone comes with the chargers but accessories that we've accumulated over the years that won't necessarily work. you see them in hotel rooms. >> talking to a hotel manager. what are you going to do with
your 450 rooms with the alarm clocks, what are you going to do with an adapter that sits between here and the phone? will it work? on some devices i've been told by apple it won't, others will and there are others that don't look as elegant as they are supposed to, buy the cord, plug it into the back of the dock. >> but it's not as pretty. >> and it won't charge. still won't charge. >> real quick, do you think the iphone 5 is worth getting? is it a must or is it a call me maybe. >> if you're at a 4s i would hold. iphone 4 or older or never seen an iphone, this is perfect for you and if you're a business professional absolutely you should do it. as that said, i will probably do it because it's my job. >> you're that guy. >> you have a 4s. you're not making the leap. >> i'm going to hold. >> plus the accessories may be cheaper and all of these things will change and you'll have other options. i think waiting is a smart thing to do. >> mario, good advice, thank you. >> thank you. coming up next, "america's got talent" goes to the dogs, the winners of last night's

and brothers and -- >> there's always something happening, bro. better than do you know the new kind of flavored coffee i have? do you like this coffee? >> jake, good to see you. >> we were laughing here because you were wondering why i was sweating profusely and really it's because i get really nervous around movie stars. and a little bit of the dancing. >> a little uncomfortable with me. >> a little dancing with dogs. >> and with psy as well. i haven't had this much fun since my bar mitzvah so it's been a good morning. the best way to describe this is raw. this is a raw and intense film. >> yes. >> talk a little bit about it. that clip belies a little bit of the intensity of the film. >> yeah. there's tons of action. once we get out of that car, we meet a lot of different scenarios like police officers do, but in any good action movie, you know, there's a ton of action and, yeah, we spent a lot of time preparing for the movie. we spent five months preparing
for this move are and we shot it in 22 days. >> wow. >> the shortest movie shoot that i've done for the longest amount of preparation. we spent two or three times a week, on the streets with police officers on ride-alongs from 4:00 p.m. to 4:00 a.m. in the movie and did tactical training with live ammunition and we did fight training every morning, so there was a lot of preparation that went into this. >> from your point of view as an actor, why did you feel the need for that kind of intense preparation? >> well, the way the movie is shot is all from the point of view of the police officers. >> right. >> and sort of feels like a ride-along where you are in the car with them and when you go into a scenario with them, you are actually from their point of view. the whole movie was shot like that, and in order for us to get the reality of that situation, we had to prepare like that. you know, there was no other way. >> there's also the other part of the reality here that frankly a lot of communities are going through is an intense level of crime that does take it to a level of drug cartels, which is what's at play here, and is incredibly dangerous for the police and federal authorities. >> yeah. well, i think the police are the first responders. >> yeah. >> so, you know, unfortunately or fortunately, you know, for
them they are dealing with a situation that is in this case, you know, beyond their jurisdiction. they keep running into the cartel houses that they don't even know exists and, you know, get into a lot of trouble, unfortunately, and end up having to -- having to deal with the cartel as a result. >> it's also a really interesting story. you have these two realities, you know, the great night scape shots that sort of takes you, transitions you into the drama of the night, but then it's really about the bonding with your partner, and that's a real relationship that really comes through on the screen. it's funny and a real personal bond. >> thank you. >> that was also what the five months was about, me and michael pena who did the movie together, that we actually had a real friendship. the heart is inside this car. we shot all the scenes in the car in a day and a half, you know, and that's like 30% of the movie, so when you're making a move like this, you know, that i think -- the reason why i gravitate to any movie is the heart in it. >> right. >> and what it's really trying to say and it's all about friendship, what the movie is about. >> also a lot of physical training. you were pretty big for this part. did you want to keep all that
muscle? >> i spent almost every morning five days a week fighting these kids in echo park. and i got basically beaten up by, you know, 14 to 20-year-old kids every morning which is -- >> doing a video about that, which people can do that workout at home, too. >> get beat up now. >> you're going to be off broadway as well in a debut. >> yeah. >> why off broadway? tell me about this project. >> i just fell in love with this play, and it's sort of perfect size for off broadway and the story is a story about a family. it's a wonderful, beautiful story about the family and off broadway seems like a nice place to start. >> jake gyllenhaal, congratulations on both. good luck with the movie. >> thank you, man. thank you. >> looks fantastic. >> and maybe you should dab your forehead a little bit. >> i've been withering under my own questioning. >> don't dance with dogs, you know what i mean? just hang with them, have a good time, because dancing with them might not be the right way.

want. >> you go into a restaurant and get a book like this and you think what do i do? >> two categories. wine by the glass is where most wine is sold, and people think that if you order wine by the glass, they can bring you anything. you don't want that. you want to stand up for your rights. >> um-hum. >> so what are the best wines to order? >> pinot george washington bridgio, sauvignon blanc. >> show me the bottle, pour the wine, let me taste the wine and if i don't like it, give me another one. >> shouldn't be afraid to send back the glass. >> if the white wine is too warm, if you don't like it, on to the next one. it's your right and dude i as a diner to get a glass of wine that you're going to enjoy. >> true or false, most expensive glass of wine is the best wine. >> false. definitely go for something -- i wouldn't say the cheapest.
stay away from the cheapest. find something in the middle. find something more different, a little bit out of the realm. >> what do you like? >> i like zinfandel, very well made and less expensive than like a cabernet sauvignon, a little more unusual. i like rose, a little pink. they leave the skins, red skins on a little bit and rose is where you can find value and quality. >> now we move on. >> by the bottle. >> right. >> you walk into the restaurant and the waiter comes to you and puts the wine list on the table and you're like oh, my god. >> what do i do? >> what do i do? >> communicate and find someone in the restaurant who loves wine. ask the waiter who buys the wine, the manager, is the owner here, because if you can find someone who cares about wine, that's the person that's going
to deliver the best wine experience to you. >> and, again, cost, anything to do with -- >> cost has a lot to do with it. you can spend -- and the relative cost of wine is almost irrelevant. >> mm-hmm. >> so you can spend $50, $100, $200, but my rule of thumb is that a responsible restaurant should be able to provide you a good bottle of wine for about the price of an entre and the great bottle of wine at two times the cost of an entre. another tip. go to a steakhouse, stay away from napa valley, cabernet or sauvignon and go for something more obscure, this is a rich zinfandel, something off the beaten track and same thing in a fancy french restaurant or special occasion. instead of a red burgundy, go for an argentinian malbec from argentina, delicious, full-bodied, great wine. >> finish up. >> a little bit esoteric, off the entry level, in our business, the restaurant
sharing their thoughts in the "new york times" blog "the choice." >> hey, everybody. i'm will walker. i'm kind to talk over and explain a little bit about myself. i'm primarily interested in the humanities and not so much science or math. extracurricularly i'm actually the captain of the debate team this year. i'm one of the editors of this school's literary magazine. in terms of college that's going to translate into me wanting to find a place where these kinds of interests that i have are really going to be cultivated. >> hi. my name is bryan stromer. i grew up in new york city, so when i go to college, i'm really looking for a different environment. growing up with cerebral palsy, i've had to advocate for myself a lot and in the process i've also begun advocating for others. that's something that i really enjoy and i want to build upon
during my college career. >> hey, guys, i'm thanh-trinh, i want to help develop technology for the video industry or biomedical engineering. i think i'm a rather ordinary kid. oh, but i do have a lot of luck. this is my luck binder. i guess thanks to think could actually find out whether this huge college process takes luck, skill or some convoluted mixture of the two. >> jacques steinberg is the senior editor of "the choice" and author of "the gatekeepers, inside the college admissions process of a premiere college out in tenth anniversary edition. josh, welcome to you. >> thank you. >> the bloggers are incredible. lots of competition and the web applications have made it even more competitive, right? >> easier than ever to apply, electronically through the common application which makes it easier in some ways to push that button but also harder because more kids can push the
button and apply to more colleges. >> going more global, too, people all over the world. >> colleges are recruiting very heavily overseas, but it's important for kids to remember there's 2,000 four-year colleges in this country, and almost all of them accept the majority of kids who apply so the perception that it's competitive is that only a few dozen or so colleges, they are the ones that are often the best known. >> what do you remember in terms of the number of applications? how many schools should you apply to? >> guidance counselors say there's no reason to apply to more than ten colleges, some kids apply to 15 or 20. >> a lot of work. >> and if you have a balanced list no reason to apply to that many colleges. >> okay. also a lot of people looking for information or counseling online as well, and there's some places that actually do this for hire. is it good to go with something like that? >> i think you have to be very, very careful. >> right. >> you have to understand where are the qualifications of this person who is giving you advice, and the best thing is to really talk to students and parents who have come before you. who are the people that they have found helpful? >> one of the things that's
changed certainly since you wrote "the guidelines" book ten years ago is standardized scores, schools take the s.a.t.s or a.c.t. and some don't care and rely on the test scores. >> s.a.t. and a.c.t. very, very comparable in terms of what kids will accept. there's a website which lists several hundred schools that don't require either standardized tests, at least for some applicants. >> affordability playing a role now. are colleges being more or less generation? >> a combination. some schools have had to cut back on financial aid and are paying more attention to students' ability to pay and some of the elite schools are offering phenomenal packages where there are no loans for the most needy students, so you really have to be very discerning and aggressive as sort of a researcher. >> jacques steinberg, more on the website on the college applications process. thank you. earlier this week we asked you this message. experiences classrooms. sizes don't matter... by 20%. teaching to some test... he personally cannot relate to. education, children.

from nbc news, this is "today" with kathie lee gifford and hoda kotb, from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. >> never thought we would get here. it's friday, september 14th. we're so glad you're with us. this is a very big day around here. >> it certainly is. it's the last day of our college competiti competition. we really want you to take part in it. we're holding the competition to find out what school really catches our eye with a lot of school spirit. we've been getting great tweets and videos and stuff. and then we're going to narrow it down. >> first we're going to look at
a video from the university of mississippi, i believe. >> hey, hoda. hey, kathie lee. we love you here in mississippi. we really need you to come experience the true spirit of the game day grove. i have cocktail for you and your wine. you'll be all set to enjoy ole miss. >> she's the only girl there. >> that's oxford, mississippi. that's where my friend sam was like king of the jungle. no, it's a beautiful town. all right. you guys are in the running. >> we also have a photo and tweet from laura brooks at the university of tennessee. she says even peytonmanni imanns a jersey waiting for you. we like to talk about our friends over at "the new york times," and he always gets some really tricky questions. and so there's this lady -- >> this is a good one. >> -- who wrote in saying her sister-in-law and her family, this gets tric, had stayed in her house almost two months
while she was away. >> she didn't charge him. >> it was totally free. they could use the cars. and while they were there, the garbage disposal broke. okay. now what would you do? you're staying in someone's house for free, for a few months. >> you fix the garbage disposal. >> they fixed it, and the bill came, and it was $600. so the person who was staying there decided to say to the owner, here's the bill for the garbage disposal. why don't we split it? and the homeowner said, what the what? anyway. so the question is what should have happened? should she have said something to the sister-in-law. i usually agree with phillip. i don't agree with him. phil says you should split it. he agrees. >> here's the use of a new disposal. but lord only knows what those people were eating to break it in the first place. you know what i'm saying? >> it could have been a timing thing. it could have broken weeks before or weeks after. i would have paid for it.
you're on a free ride. you're on a gravy train. >> this has happened to me. you come to your place to appreciate it and someone has not cared for it at all the way you would have expected them to. i think that's extraordinarily rude. >> what if by chance it broke. it's time. it's old. it was going to kick. >> in two months staying there, they would have spent a lot more than $600 anywhere else. and out of gratitude -- which is an unused word too often, they should have paid for it to say thank you for letting u stay here two months. of course, i'm always wrong. >> you were wrong about the granny. >> granny panties. >> you guys remember? she got yanked out of the car by the cop. anyway, it's national play-dough day. >> celebrating 50. >> i'm older than play-doh. 55 years. >> now that hurts.
this was hurt manufactured not as play-doh but as a wall paper cleaner. and kids started playing with it. they're like, oh my god. you can make things out of it. they started using it in the classroom. >> so we're going to make a face today. it's in the national toy hall of fame. no joking around. i have an unfinished hoda. >> now, we have different parts that we're supposed to add to make it. so we'll do it right now. >> let me look at your nose. >> okay. that looks like the big one. i'm just telling you. >> just saying. >> don't do that with the hair. i'm already onto you. look at your lid. your lid is bad, too. >> we're going to hold it up. you are disgusting. >> okay.
i'm done. as usual, early and perfect. >> that's close. >> i got to put the nose up a little higher. >> careful with the nose. >> it's just a little bulbous. but it's good. >> i look like a freak. >> since when did i get my mouth like that. >> well, you know. >> go ahead. do the reveal. >> sometimes after drinking. here's hoda woman. >> that's terrible. i'm bummed it's their anniversary. >> i'm bummed i'm older than that. warm and fuzzy. there was a guy who owned a car dre dealership. he was retiring. 83-year-old howard cooper decided he was going to give every employee $1,000 for every year they worked. there were 89 employees in all. a lot of them worked there more than 20 years.
one was with them 47 years. he had sold the company to another motor company last april. when he did that, he made sure each employee was repaid. >> we're starting the award on friday or whenever we decide to do it. whenever we hear of a nice person. nice guy or gal of the week. and we do have ideas about that. don't like. we'll find out. here's some weird thing they're doing with tombstone. you know the bar codes they have on clothes and groceries and you can scan it with your iphone and tell you how much it costs. they want to try to do something in graveyards where they have the same bar code on a tombstone. it's called a qr code. put it in the prompter. anyway.
you scan it in the bar code and it shows pictures and photos of the person who is deceased. so if you want to learn more about that person. >> it bothers me, and i don't know why. it looks like a desecration on the tombstone itself. move moving it to the modern era. you could scan it. and also, how do you know what information is on there? >> is it your facebook page? >> if it's wikipedia, anybody can put anything they want. it's time for our friday funny. two elderly women were fussing about their husbands over tea one day. i do wish my leroy would stop biting his nails. its me terribly nervous. the first one said.
mine used to do the same thing, the other woman commented. but i broke him of the habit real quick. how did you do it? well, i hit his teeth. it's time for bobbie's buzz. >> i didn't understand that. >> bobbie, we have missed you. where were you? >> i missed you, too. i went to hawaii for a short trip to celebrate fashion week. now it's fashion week in new york. >> look at you. >> remember when you, hoda, were talking about your favorite treatment at the spa which is like a scrub down and they strip your skin. >> like on a gurney. i think i have found your favorite new tool. this is not a razor. it's an exfoliating tool. feel it against your skin. it's not going to take off the hair. but if you get a close up it's going to literally take the dead layer of skin off. and look at my arm.
>> ow, ow. >> are you supposed to use water. >> they do say. but you said you like it rough. >> i do. i do. >> she's right. anyway. you can see the self tanner coming off. really exciting. this is helpful if you do have self tanner. a lot of women also have fallen in love with manicures. don't peel it off. it will take your nail with it. red carpet manicure will help you with the nail removal kit. and cameron diaz and j.lo have a secret. this will keep your teeth whiter. it will remove your film to wear the brighter, bolder lip colors for fall. so here you go. >> aren't we glad bobbie is back.

and that is a photo from auburn university in alabama. reminder to send us a tweet if you want us to send us your college campus. maybe we'll come see you. >> all right. switching gears. female sexuality has puzzled scientists, psychologists, men, women and perverts for generations, leaving many of us wondering is there a mind/body connection to having a happy sex life? >> best selling author naomi wolf talks about this in her new book "vagina: a female biography." >> you did it. you said it. >> a lot of us have a problem saying that word. what is the story with that? >> well, i mean very private, very personal, very intimate. on the other hand, there is some important new information that we have.
anyway. naomi wrote a very scholarly account of this. >> thank you. >> so we're having a little fun with you. tell us what you learned new in all of your research. >> you bet. like most of us, i felt like i knew the basics. i've been interested in sexuality my whole career and thought i followed it, thought i understood. it turns out our idea of what women need is really stuck from 40 years ago and there's all this amazing new science about female arousal and science and orgasms. there i said that, too. i'm blushing. but it should update how we understand women and help people help their lovers, help their wives, their partners and help them. >> you seem connected to creativity. your sexuality and what happens downstairs is connected to your mind. >> i'm interpreting the data that way. there's an amazing new
documentation that neuroscientists have established that there's a strong brain-vagina connection. we talk about the brain-vagina connection. there's no brain-penis connection. a disconnection. we'll wait for a man to write that book. there's understandably a brain-vagina connection such that when a woman is empowered to know about her desire, know what makes her happy, think about it and have the satisfying orgasm, she gets some really great neuro chemicals affecting her mood. she gets dopamine, and she gets opiaites, which is about joy. i've definitely interviewed a lot of women who realize when they see the signs, ost, that's w when i'm really feeling good about myself and my lover i can bring that o other aspects of my
life. >> we're all so different. every woman is completely different. as you were saying this, did you stick to any one, like a nun, who has never had sex her whole life and seems to enjoy a beautiful experience in life of service to mankind. >> oh, absolutely. >> how does that figure in? >> i'm so glad you asked that. let me stress the findings in this book. i have reader ls who are celibate, lesbian, bisexual, married. you don't have to be having sex with another person to be able to use this information to protect your own health and well being. you get it from nursing or holding a baby. you get dopamine from shopping. it's about knowing yourself better. you don't have to be in a relationship for that. you said everyone is different.
this is a huge important finding. in the '70s where all our information has stuck. they said men and women are basically the same. one of your producers called it the difference between the grid and the lace, which is the difference between men and women's wiring. this doesn't sound like a sexy subject, but it is. if you look at medical illustrations of the male's pelvic int-- the penis -- i sai that. >> go ahead and say erectile dysfunction. >> we're running out of time. i'm so sorry. this book is really fascinating. >> it's full of great information. it's gotten terrific reviews. gloria steinman from "time" magazine. thank you for coming. we really appreciate it. next up. from vagina to -- in 15 minutes or less. this message. experiences classrooms. sizes don't matter... by 20%. teaching to some test... he personally cannot relate to. education, children.
