6:00 am
one week after a deputy-involved shooting, protests continue in >>jennifer: one week after a deputy involved shooting, protests continue in hillsborough county. we're hearing from both the black lives matter movement. >>russell: a man is dead after an online deal goes bad. >>jennifer: and congress returns from a seven-week vacation and the zika virus is at the top of the agenda. hermine sets off a potential time bomb in florida. >>lindsay: we're waking up milder. it's not quite as muggy and rain chances extremely low this afternoon so fantastic news
6:01 am
dropped one degree in tampa. it's 75, below average. 70 in brooksville, 64 in ocala. upper 70s near the coast. mid 70s in frost proof and sebring so we're in the blue. one to five degrees milder but what you're really noticing is it's not as oppressive. it's not a huge change, a minor change but a change we'll take. upper 60s from tampa north meaning we dropped them enough it's not as oppressive and because of that limited rain today, at best a down south with highs in the lower 90s. we'll talk about how long it will last. >>vanessa: 6:01 is the time and we're really watching manatee county and sarasota for big road closures. complete blockage in myakka city. this is a possible fatality so some very serious injuries reported here. state road 64 to the north is your work around. meantime to sarasota county, emergency road work here.
6:02 am
east of myakka park and we're hearing it's going to be a seven-day project, weather permitting. drivers making long distance journeys. fdot is advising to you take state road 70. >>russell: today marks one week since a hillsborough county deputy shot and killed 22-year-old riggins. almost every day since then, protestors have taken to the streets. yesterday they even shut down traffic. they're comparing his death to the deaths of other unarmed black men at the hands of law en fortsment. deputies were conducting a drug related search of his home august 30. >>jennifer: i made a sudden move for his waist band but he was unarmed. >>russell: activists from driving from hours way to draw attention to his death.
6:03 am
without accountability and that we have to start resisting it and we should just be treated just like every other human being. >> we all out here to make sure the officer goes to jail and everything and that we destroy it. it's a tragedy. our whole family, we want answers. we don't understand what happened and we want to know. >> i've been with the sheriff's office 25 years. i grew up here and i take our investigations very >>russell: state attorney's office will determine whether the shooting was justified. meantime, deputy that shot riggins is on paid administrative leave. >>jennifer: support for the black lives matter movement is growing. according to a new poll, 51% of white adults between the ages of 18 and 30 now strongly or somewhat support black lives matter. that's a 10 point increase from june. majority of black hispanic and asian young adults also support
6:04 am
online sale ends with a polk county man dead and now deputies are searching for his killer. sunday night, 21-year-old man was with a friend selling an item he had posted online. a buyer planned to meet them in the parking lot of the lakeland family dollar. during the transaction, investigators say the buyer grabbed the item and ran. he chased after him. there were gunshots. seller called 911 but it was too late. morrow was pronounced dead at the hospital. they only have a vague description of the buyer. anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff's office. morrow had just recently moved to polk county from pennsylvania. >>jennifer: members of the local law enforcement community will say goodbye to one of their own. fred arnold's funeral is this morning at 11:00 a.m. officer arnold died while on
6:05 am
he was diving near the wreckage of a world war ii era bomber when he suffered a heart attack. he proudly served the community for 27 years and volunteered countless hours mentoring teens in the police explorer program. he was 48. >>russell: pasco county flood waters finally starting to recede but the imagine is already done. murky, brown water that filled the streets may be doing unseen damage. county officials say the lids on septic tanks have popped open and waste water is bubbling up. they're seeping into private wells and they're asking people to use bottled water in the near future. if you do plan to use well water, they say boil it and get it tested as soon as possible. >>jennifer: the county has released the preliminary damage assessment from hurricane hermine. nine more homes are destroyed, nearly 300 have major damage. nearly 200 have minor damage. in all, 322 structures were affected by the storm. >>russell: there's a power struggle happening in
6:06 am
hermine. as of yesterday, more than 26,000 customers in leon county were still without power. that contrasts other parts of the state where only a few thousand are still without electricity. governor scott openly questioned if city and county officials are doing enough. tallahassee mayor says the city is doing all it can. >>jennifer: the governor cancelled a trip to washington. >>russell: he was originally scheduled to meet with congress leaders about funding to combat the s >>jennifer: there's growing pressure to get the funding passed. shayla reaves is live in pasco county. while lawmakers debate over dollars and cents, there's plenty we can do in the meantime, right? >>reporter: you're right. there are communities right here in the bay area. they're waking up and can still see water flowing down the streets, in some cases their homes surrounded by water.
6:07 am
pasco county and right now we're in the elfers community. much of the water that is in the neighborhood, it's receding but there are still areas where just down there in the darkness, you can still see the water flowing across the roadway. and the big concern when we talk about zika is the further and further you get away from that original storm and the longer the water is allowed to stand, the really, the concerns about mosquitos laying that reality becomes more prevalent and more concerning. today we know that congressional members are going to be meeting to talk about funding for zika again and right here in the bay area, just to give you an example, the cdc says when it comes to water, it takes only a teaspoon or a bottle cap amount of water for mosquitos to lay their eggs. that water standing for about a week can be a concern. if you live in an area where
6:08 am
dishes, tires, trash, trash containers, anything that might be able to collect water, you're encouraged to make sure you dump that water out. you make sure that you don't leave any areas where water can stand for long periods of time. in addition to that, if you're going to be outside for awhile, you're encouraged to wear long sleeved shirts and long pants, take some steps to control mosquitos inside and outside your home, including using screens on windows and repair holes on the screens and use air conditioning when available. a good tool is insect repellant. if you're going to be outside, make sure you use insect repellant. if you're going to be in those areas where mosquitos are concerned and that's an issue that worries you. so this is a big worry. we've been talking about it now for several months. we know there are dozens of cases of locally acquired zika here in florida since the summer
6:09 am
we're going to keep you posted, likely folks will begin waking up here and continuing to assess the damage, continuing to look at human need as we make our way through the week and emergency management officials also try to assess the damage in human need in communities like pasco county after hurricane hermine. back to you. >>russell: we'll talk again later. >>jennifer: donald trump and hillary clintonla parked on the same tarmac. >>russell: they were both in ohio. things got a little too close for comfort. clinton was showing off her boeing 747. until now she's travelled by private jet. this allows journalists to fly with the campaign. donald trump and pence were also in ohio. they were forced to the side of the road as clinton's motorcade drove by. well, then after seeing clinton's new plane, trump
6:10 am
tour of his private jet. >>jennifer: in recent weeks, clinton has brushed off rumors about her health. this video has people talking. while answering questions on the plane, clinton struggled to fight back a coughing fit. an aide offered her some water before taking a short break. her campaign attributed it to allergies. >>russell: clin clip and the new plane will be in florida today. event starts at 1:45. >>jennifer: we hope to reunite an american flag with its owner. >>russell: where the flag was found and why it could mean something very special to someone out there. and a new privacy concerns at disney world. some parents are outraged over a new fingerprinting policy. how the company plans to ease concerns. >>lindsay: if you maybe have a little extra vacation and can have a day today, go for it. it's not as muggy this morning.
6:11 am
school. the bus stop forecast is a good one. not as muggy areawide, more sun, too, around the state. look at that green. that's low 60s in gainesville. we're at 70 in brooksville this morning. beach day looks good but we talked about bacteria at the beach, too. breezy with highs near 90. a lot going on in the atlantic and pacific after the break. follow your own sense of style... because, you want to be confident. t.j.maxx really helped us express our creative side. that's the best part. you don't know what you're going to find. i always find great deals on shoes... purses... we're a team. yeah.
6:12 am
6:13 am
introducing dunkin's new cold brew coffee, steeped slowly in cold water for small batches with an ultra-smooth, full-bodied flavor. discover the craft of cold brew today and keep on.
6:14 am
a new storm is bearing >>jennifer: a new storm is bearing down on the pacific coast of mechanics cope. hurricane newton made landfall in newton could trigger flash floods. residents taking no chances, setting up sand bag barriers and protecting glass windows with plywood. >> we all look out for each other when things like this happen so i think everything is going to be fine, but like i said, just better to be prepared than not. >>jennifer: airlines have cancelled flights, stranding some 14,000 tourists. mexican government has set up dozens of shelters and are
6:15 am
>>russell: people in rhode island feeling the effects of hermine. it's creating big waves. high surf will remain at least the next few days. the storm that won't go away. >>lindsay: and i looked back to see how long we were talking about it. it was invest 99 and now it's post tropical storm hermine. >>russell: it's been at least two weeks, hn' >>lindsay: 20 days this existed from africa through the caribbean and the gulf and now the northeast but at least the rain is offshore for them. waves are brewing so i'll start with the atlantic and then talk pacific and then go to the atlantic because there's a lot going on. here is what we have this morning and across coastal new england. big time waves. not as impressive as yesterday, still packing 65 mile-per-hour winds but check out those wave heights near the cape.
6:16 am
50 miles east of new jersey, 13 foot waves to churning this up, we'll watch some coastal erosion in the coming days. these are manageable wind gusts. near 30 in new york city. these are not damaging wind gusts as the brubt of the strongest winds are here. the brunt of the rain is offshore, too, just some patchy sprinkles in boston today. 65 mile-per-hour winds. the storm that doesn't give up, moving west at eight but here we go. wind shear just takes a toll on it and mile-per-hour winds but no longer what we call post tropical, if you will. we'll get that out of our hair. we have newton. category one hurricane made landfall about an hour ago near the southern tip of baja. the center and strongest winds near the core there so not only flash flooding a threat but the wind, the damage to some of the resorts quickly moving at least north-northwest at 17 and some of this moisture headed to drought stricken southwest. this will be into the mid to
6:17 am
no longer tropical by then but the moisture will be yanked northward. good news is the two other areas of disturbed weather that i'm tracking, they're not organized. likely not going to create a big deal. as this moves westward toward the yucatan, a 20% chance of development and another disturbance that has not formed yet but likely will west of the cape verde islands. this is going to move west-northwest. the long range models don't pose this as a big threat to us here in tampa bay but the peak of hurricane season four days away so can't let our guard down. a lot to watch in the coming weeks ahead. live look, mostly clear skies, 75 degrees. light winds. temperatures are mainly in the low 70s. we have mid 70s south. upper 60s in crystal river. the bigger thing is that the
6:18 am
so as we head through the day today, i think you'll notice very limited rain, a whole lot more sun, too. rain chances 10%. about 20% further south of tampa bay but even then, really a sprinkle or light shower at best. 91, still a hot day with sun but we're down to 74, a couple of nights that are enjoyable. a few clouds, nice and mild overnight and then for wednesday, we hit 91. rain chances 20% at best so the next couple of days are welcomed, much drier. a little near the coast. northeast winds at 10 to 15 knots today so a moderate chap for voters. moisture is back by late but a couple of days look drier with mild overnights as well so a little bonus for us. >>vanessa: thanks. 6:18 and we're starting to pick up here. howard frankland bridge, we have a live look for you right now and you can definitely see we're starting to get a little busier here, southbound lanes heading this way and northbound looking a little bit more with those
6:19 am
northbound coming from st. pete side of the howard frankland heading up to i-4 is in the green, still 13 minutes. two minutes actually, only, to get eastbound i-4 coming from the interchange to the area of the connector and give yourself 11 minutes heading out right now to travel southbound 75, 275 to i-4. >>russell: disney started scanning children's fingerprints in a push to crack down on ticket sharing. >>jennifer: the parents over the privacy implications. new rules apply to children from three to nine years old. when they enter the park, they'll get scanned just like older adults. disney says the new process will help block the use of stolen and shared tickets. parents who feel uncomfortable have the option to link passes to their own fingerprint instead. disney recently received a patent on another way to track guests in the parks. it uses foot recognition technology. that's also raised privacy
6:20 am
there are no immediate plans to use that technology. an american astronaut is coming home after setting a new record. >>russell: details on his homecoming and a look at the next mission in nasa's pipeline and check out this picture. looks like a toddler is chasing a cheetah. we'll explain why it is more than meets the eye. giving people options based on their budget is pretty edgy... kind of like this look. i'm calling it the "name your price tool" phase.
6:22 am
donald trump facing new criticism - he appeared to mock a reporter with a disability. "you gotta see this guy. 'uhhhh i don't know what i said, i don't remember.' he's going like 'i don't remember'." "putting a wife to work is a very dangerous thing. chauvinist." "you have to be wealthy in order to be great. i'm sorry to say it." "he's a war hero because he was captured. i like people that weren't captured."
6:23 am
it's time to see what's clicking on the web. vanessa is here with this >>russell: time to see what's clicking on the web. >>jennifer: vanessa is here with the hot clicks. >>vanessa: teacher trying over tricks to win over s the first day of school. the trend is singing popular songs. some teachers can pull it off and others, maybe stick to the day job? ? you've got to work, work, work, work, work, work?
6:24 am
>>vanessa: their faces, right? a for effort? i don't know what grade we would give it for execution. it's not clear where the school is, but apparently the teacher really likes rihanna. that's not rean a. that's another group who does that song. who is it? we'll get the google machine on it. it's a different -- >>jennifer: isn't it >>russell: featuring drake. >>jennifer: it's her version. >>vanessa: it's quite a version. the song sets up basic class rules. this video has gotten more than 200,000 views in the last week. at least she tried. put herself out there. >>jennifer: it's fifth harmony.
6:25 am
that version. i'm getting them confused. there we go. next, this picture appears to show a toddler chasing a cheetah. now, before you get alarmed, this was taken at an animal park in england. the little girl's name is leila and she's perfectly safe. this is not photo shopped but it's actually a clever reflection. you can see she's on the other side of the glass. >>jennifer: really? it got me. looks like she's we're fortunate. she's on the other side. and finally, we'll get to this. who wants to take a trip to the love shack? pet groomer does not just wash the pets. he pampers them while dancing to the b52's. >>jennifer: dog is like, what is happening to me? >>vanessa: he finds stray dogs and places them in new homes. this video has nearly five
6:26 am
>>russell: i like it. >>vanessa: i'm going to like use a double negative. you can't not chance when you hear love shack. >>russell: you can't. we were supposed to eat up to mean in hot clicks and i think we pulled it off. still ahead this morning on "good day," the president of the philippines uses how can we say, some colorful language to deri he's dealing with the fallout. >>jennifer: ken has more on returning a flight to its rightful owner. >>reporter: it has to belong to someone. who that is, we're trying to find out. we'll talk to the gentleman who found this in clearwater over
6:27 am
6:28 am
6:29 am
i'm hillary clinton and i approve this message. he wears it like a crown. "make america great again". but trump made his shirts in bangladesh. his ties in china. and his suits in mexico. in fact, the real donald trump outsourced his products and jobs to 12 different countries. so don't believe the hat.
6:30 am
good morning i'm russell rhodes and i'm jen epstein in for laura moody. >>russell: welcome. i'm russell rhodes. >>jennifer: and i'm jennifer epstein. >>russell: let me say this about this. you're right. i took the dogs out early this morning. it's nice. >>jennifer: i want to use the word cool. >>russell: this isn't going to last. >>lindsay: it will last a few mornings, >>russell: the dogs were loving it. >>lindsay: further south of tampa bay, it's not quite as comfy but manageable humidity this morning. and temperatures are in check, too. let's just get outside. it's going to be a beautiful morning, a great day, a few clouds, good visibility and most of us are in the low to mid 70s. no 80s. can you believe it? 77 in st. pete. i have 70 in brooksville. lakeland at 72. frost proof and sebring in the mid 70s this morning.
6:31 am
darker green south, it's not as comfy but a lot of sun on the deck today. slim rain chances specially south but even then it's a light shower at best so the next few mornings will be very mild but by thursday afternoon, storms making a comeback with a 30% chance. >>vanessa: right now we have an update here on the forced detours. these are the detours that authorities are forcing drivers due to the fat intersection with betts road. we're learning now eastbound traffic is going to be diverted onto verna bethany and westbound traffic diverted to betts road. there's a way to get around this locally but you'll have to plan extra time. otherwise, you'll want to head to state road 64 to get around that. lane blockages prove throughout the morning. we'll check in on the veterans expressway. very, very slightly under speed. 59 miles per hour southbound
6:32 am
highway. 12 minutes northbound, also 12. >>russell: almost 6:32. philippines president is expressing deep regret over controversial comments he made about president obama. let's just say he used very explicit language. he made the comments before flying to a regional summit where she was scheduled to meet with the president. well, that meeting is now postponed. >>jennifer: today congress returns to washington a zika virus is at the top of the agenda. in february president obama requested $1.9 billion in emergency funds to develop a vaccine and control mosquitos that carry the virus. lawmakers went on vacation without approving the money. now the head of cdc says if vong fails to act again, the country won't have the necessary resources to fight the virus. senate republicans are expected to vote on a funding bill as
6:33 am
patrol officer fred arnold is today. officer arnold died late last month while on vacatin in nevada. he was diving near the wreckage of a world war ii era bomber when he suffered a heart attack. proudly served this community for 27 years, volunteered countless hours mentoring teens in the police explorer program. he was 48 years old. >>jennifer: get ready for a big change at tampa international airport. the airport is closing the blue side f departures. that affects flights from american, delta, jet blue and united. closing will be every day between 8:00 p.m. and 4:00 a.m. during that time, all pickups and dropoffs will need to go to the short-term parking. these changes will be in effect until next year. >>russell: this morning a pinellas county man is searching for the owner of an american flag. he found it on the side of the road. >>jennifer: it could hold a very special meaning for someone out there.
6:34 am
story. >>reporter: good morning. our theory is the more we talk about this, the more we put it on television and the better our chance of finding the owner of this flag. we've been talking to ted all morning long. before we were talking about how you have a special connection to a flag because a flag in your life meant something to you. tell us that story. >> it did. when i was 11 years old, my father passed away and i recall vividly the funeral service and sitting next to my mother and after the casket draped flag, the flailing was removed and foaled -- folded up in a triangle and that went to my mother. she passed away 10 years later and i held on to that flag and i still have it. but yeah, whenever i see a flag folded like this, it remind me of that incident. it's engrained in my memory. >>reporter: could there be something inside like a little note or that kind of thing?
6:35 am
and see if there is? >> there could be and several people have told me, just unfold it and i just -- i don't know. i feel hesitant to do that because, you know, people -- some people could get very, very attached to this and i feel like i might be violating some personal property of theirs emotionally they might not want me to do that so -- and i don't know how to refold it so i don't want to do that. if we don't hear from anybody, you know, in a week or to see if there's something inside. >>reporter: russell gave us a thumbnail sketch but give us a background and where you were going and how you saw this. >> i was coming home from my granddaughter's birthday party on u.s. 19 in clearwater and i was in an overpass, in the right-hand lane and on the service lane on the outside shoulder, i passed this object and i didn't know what it was at
6:36 am
caught my eye and i saw white stars on a blue field and i thought, that's a flag laying on the pavement there. so i pulled off as soon as i got on the overpass, pulled over to the median, got out of the car, jogged back up the overpass and sure enough, it was a flag. i wasn't sure if it was a flag or an actual flag. it could have been packaging material, box or something that was designed to look like a flag, you know. i passed by >>reporter: so you've had a couple of leads. two people have called and said i know that's my flag. you were going to contact a lady a little bit later so we'll see. we might be able to do that live on the air to find out if this -- wouldn't that be cool if that happened and we could make a reconnection for someone? so that will probably be coming up in an hour or so. back to you in the meantime. >>russell: let's hope so. thanks. good to see you. talk soon. >>jennifer: a youtube video
6:37 am
exploding on a roadway near disney's hollywood studios. the poster says they were riding on a disney bus and as they passed a park, the fireworks show was going on. disney has not commented on the incident. >>russell: new video reveals the fate of a u boat that sank off north carolina during world war ii. july 1942, u-576 sank battle off cape hatteras. in response, u.s. sank the german submarine. two years ago both vessels were discovered resting 200 yards apart and just 35 miles from the coast. it wasn't until this past week archeologists had a chance to get a closer look. and look at this. most of this u-boat is still intact. researchers hope to get a better idea of what happened in that battle. >>jennifer: three international space station crew members are
6:38 am
tonight. they include expedition 48 commander jeff williams who completed a pair of space walks. he and two russian cosmonauts will land in kazakhstan about 3 1/2 hours later. williams will return to earth after racking up 534 days in space. the most for any u.s. astronaut in history. >>russell: first u.s. mission to travel to an asteroid and return with samples is set to blast off on thursday. it's near earth asteroid, map its surface and return with souvenirs. won't reach the asteroid until july of 2020. there's a mission briefing this afternoon and the launch comes days after a space x rocket exploded on the pad at the cape. officials say that will not impact thursday's launch. >>jennifer: nearly two years ago, european space agency made
6:39 am
landing of a spacecraft on a comet. the lander sent back date for three days before its battery ran out. scientists gave up hope of restoring contact with the probe. now the images reveal its fate. it seems the lander got wedged in a crack on the comet's surface. the spacecraft that took these pictures is set to crash into the comet later this month. >>russell: asteroid has been named after freddie it was discovered in 1971, the year he died. he says the newly named asteroid is just a dot of light but it's a very special dot of light. nice. what a voice. >>jennifer: we're enjoying the weather this morning, right? >>russell: yes. >>jennifer: not quite as warm, a little less humid as you walk out the door today.
6:40 am
chevy chase checks into rehab for, quoting here, a tuneup. we dance on the salsa team together, and it's like a lot of power in what we wear. when we're practicing if i don't feel good in what i'm wearing i don't look good. t.j.maxx has that variety. i can get a lot for my money. it's like "yay t.j.maxx!" if you're feeling it, just go for it, don't wait.
6:42 am
6:43 am
>>lindsay: it's 6:43. a welcome change of pace this morning. first of all, not as many clouds but more importantly, not as warm and a little less muggy. boating includes a slight northeast breeze to hop over to lakeland. remember the low clouds from yesterday? none of the sorts thanks to some a couple of clouds this morning, sunrise coming up at 7:11 and that will feature plenty of low 70s on the map this morning thanks to that drier push of air from the north. so ocala is 64 but brooksville is 70 feels great and so does the 72 in lakeland. we're in the mid 70s from sebring and frost proof. it's not as comfortable for you but feels decent in tampa and even st. pete where it's 77 degrees. a little bit of blue, meaning we're a little cooler from 24 hours ago.
6:44 am
nine in ocala but more importantly, dew points dropped five degrees. any time they're near 70 or shy of 70, it's not as oppressive. how about some weather headlines? dry air aloft settling in not just for today but i think tomorrow will feel decent in the morning hours. only an outside chance of a shower today and tomorrow. by thursday, a little bit more in the rain department. low rain chances overall with mild mornings and scattered storms building west late in the a chance to deal with the aftermath of hermine. we're still dealing with river flooding. no rain today. that river near alfers is at minor flood stage and rain chances down to 20% well south of the bay thanks to high pressure to the north. a bunch of sunshine this morning, lots of sunshine this afternoon and with that red color, that's the drier cue of air, believe it or not, on the
6:45 am
winds not as oppressive today but it's impressive this time of year for us to hold that moisture aloft. highs today warm because of more sun. we're at 91 for an afternoon high. 90 in venice. 91 in bartow. upper 80s at the beach. enjoyably warm and slightly less humid today on future cast. look at the rain, very limited. if you see a shower, it's likely a shower, not a big booming storm. 6:00 to or two for the ride home. only a few showers, a 20% rain chance and even wednesday and thursday, take some time with that east winds and a couple of days of it while the storms will be building on the west coast. today, though, a 10% rain chance. 91. sunrise beautiful, coming up at 7:11. 74 is below average. nice and mild overnight. for wednesday, warm in the afternoon but slim rain chances
6:46 am
a little breezy today so keep that in mind if you have boating plans. moderate chop, northeast winds at 10 to 15. next tide to share is a low tide at 11:53. if you have plans this weekend, storms creeping in with a 40% rain chance. i don't even remember the last time i did not put a rain chance on the forecast. rainy season hangs on a few more weeks. how is the commute doing? >>vanessa: overall, not too bad. as far as the not seeing anything new. we're starting to see congestion i-4 westbound, starting to build in eastern hillsborough county. this is near macintosh road and here we have the most backup is going to be westbound direction. already up to 16 minutes westbound i-4 buchman highway to 75. up to 15 minutes here now southbound 275, bearss avenue heading into the downtown interchange. looks like we're still in the clear. only taking five minutes to get
6:47 am
over. it is back to work for wall street. >>jennifer: there's some excite many. coming up, details on a multi billion dollar deal in the works and warner brothers files a copyright complaint against itself.
6:48 am
presents appetites. even a small one can throw you off your game. they can happen anywhere. and they only get bigger as time goes on. serve foster farms corn dogs, a delicious plump frank wrapped in a honey crunchy coating. a corn dog with 7 grams of protein makes a big appetite go away. foster farms corn dogs.
6:49 am
this morning traders are
6:50 am
>>jennifer: traders are returning to work after the long weekend. >>russell: so is lauren simonetti. she joins us from the fox business network studios. did you have a nice weekend? >> i went apple picking yesterday. a little early but we decided to do it. in our shorts and flip-flops. >>russell: will you share a picture, please? >> i have one on instagram. >>russell: i'll look for it. >> i'll send you some better ones. let's get down to business, right? >>russell: jobs. not so great, huh? >> yeah. no, 151,000 jobs were created in august. we were expecting 180,000. we also expected a jobless rate to move down. that didn't happen. 4.9% is the rate. markets went up. dow rose more than 70 points on friday. head scratcher. why? because a bad jobs report means a crummy economy, means the fed is going to stay on their hands and do nothing.
