light, a flash of energy that wipes out the tattoo. why that's important is the granules are small so the smaller the granules the faster the pulse you need and until recently it was commercial available to give a pulse of light less than a billionth of a seconds. >> you're speaking as if you went to duke for engineering for your under grad. >> yes. >> which you d you mean it goes really fast. >> yeah, so fast the flash of light is less than a billionth of a seconds. >> what was a regular one? before what was it. >> five to 10 to a hundred billionths of a second. >> because it goes fast is it like a deeper strike. >> it's a more effective strike. so, it wipes out particles that the laser wouldn't see otherwise. it can see things, for example, we could never get out yellow ink. just looked at us and laughed at us. now we did a study with this laser and it just disappeared. we didn't expect that. we didn't know. it's really an innovation. >> his arm -- if you didn't know that that had some pretty disgusting tattoos on it --

but there have been changes. there have been three previous state takeovers, a christie created tourism district an state of emergency manager. but now there could be an even bigger change. state senate president steven sweeney wants the state to take over atlantic city's finances. he introduced legislation for a formal plan and is threatening the struggling town to declare bankruptcy if the legislature does not approve the measure. but this does not come without opposition. mayor don guardian this week compared the proposal to japan's attack on pearl harbor. he told new jersey advanced media "it caught us completely off guard. it was our pearl harbor here, certainly no one was lost or killed but it was that kind of a surprise to me. ." joining us live now from atlantic city we have mayor don guardian. good morning, mr. mayor. >> good morning fox philadelphia. >> well, thank you. so, comparing sweeney's proposal to the pearl harbor attack do you think that was a little extreme?
>> no, when i compared to it pearl harbor, what i meant is the ambassador to the united states from japan was sitting at a table talking about peace and harmony with the secretary of state of the united states while they were bombing pearl harbor. and this is not different here. we're sitting at the table with our state mon, to our state emergency manager following every recommendation that they've made as we cut our cost of municipal government and do our best to recruit new businesses, as we diversify our economy away from simply being gaming centric. so, it's a complete surprise. the state would want to take over atlantic city. >> is it really a surprise, though? i mean, you guys have been getting help, what, since 2010. 10,000 people are without jobs. four out of 12 casinos have closed. the state has been working with you guys but we haven't really seen good results so is it really a surprise? >> so, i have to technological you that it's the proliferation of the 30 gaming casinos on the east coast that
has proved to be more than there are gamblers that want to gamble and so four casinos did close two years ago but the eight remaining this year did well. we stabilized. so maybe right sizing atlantic city casinos is actually what happened. now we realize we put all our eggs in one basket. a casino as a solution for government problems is a bad idea. it's a bad idea in north jersey, too its a bad idea wherever you do. you need to diversify the economy and that's why yesterday i talked about the excitement this spring of breaking ground for a university right near in atlantic city, new corporate offices, new housing and the sale of the showboat and opening up that as another hotel. >> what town was diversifying and also having another strategy and having the state come in and help if that means it's going to put atlantic city in there right direction? >> well, atlantic city's doing everything. the state right now through a memo of understanding has to
approve every contract, every budget, all of our hiring, firing any changes in salary. they have all of that. we've complied. the concept of a takeover it seems to be way, way -- a poor decision on the state's part. we're south jersey. we're not the confederacy. sending down an occupational force is not the way you do government. people were elected to run this municipality because of home rule and we're trying to do a very good job all of us. nine members of city council and myself. >> i think the issue is the way things have been going the state has to come back in with a lot of taxpayer dollars and support you guys i mean, sweeney has said the state is not going to come in and bail you out anymore. you need to fix this, get your act together, flock offer the bs and start addressing what you need to address. >> so, that couldn't be more incorrect. here are the actual facts. in the last 30 years atlantic city has spent $21 billion to the state of new jersey. so the question should be
what's the state of new jersey doing with our $21 billion? why are they not trying to help us out at the same proportion they're helping out 35 other urban areas in the state of new jersey. they're working with the mayor of camden helping with economic development dollars to rebuild that city as they are in trenton and patterson and newark and jersey city and irvington. we're asking for the same type of support. we just want to be treated equally. >> okay, welling thank you so much mayor guardian. i guess we'll have to see how this goes over with the legislators. >> thank you very much. have a great day everyone. >> you, too. all right. 7:51. well, it is a big, big morning for the stars. and all the movie lovers out there. the oscar nominations are less than an hour away. the revenant a big favorite thing this morning. leonardo dicaprio is also a big favorite. we want him to win, a lot of people do. we'll take you live to hollywood as they announce the nominations. will sylvester stallone get a nomination? we'll see.
>> ♪ >> 7:55. >> little stevie wonder. >> yeah. >> ♪ >> over here in trenton. >> there you go. that's what i'm looking for right there. >> ♪ >> this looks like fun. >> it does look like a lot of fun. they have a lot of fun at the african-american museum and you can go there, too, this weekend to have some fun. >> the museum has a lot going on there. interactive things planned in honor of this weekend martin luther king holiday of course is monday. lauren, you're over there right now. hi. >> reporter: i am. hello mike and alex. yeah, this is not an ordinary
museum where it's all quiet and you have to whisper and walk around like a party unside. here to tell us all about raki reynolds friend of the family at fox. how are you. >> i'm so excited about this weekend and i wanted to introduce you guys to the president and ceo of the african-american museum who will kick us off and tell us about the weekend. >> patti tells about it. >> good morning every unw a four day celebration of mlk's legacy. we have been working in partnership with citizens bank anand through their generosity we have programming friday through monday family friendly activities hands on. it's going to be a wonderful celebration. >> rakia is give us a sneak peek, right. what are we starting with. >> we're going to have antonio mcill wayne he's called the arm picasso. he'll do live painting a part of the inspire series. we'll have a local influence talk about economic empowerment among the millennial population and this is happening at a museum. a nontraditional place to talk
about economic empowerment but it's all about mlk. >> i love inside the museum there's music. >> we have music dancing hip hop culture jazz, you name it. it's going to be happening. it's family friendly. all ages. so no matter if you're eight or 80 you can come out this weekend and learn your favorite dances because you're going to have roger lee teaching you hip hop, culture, jazz and all the new dances as part of this great celebration. >> reporter: the kids can just jump in and join in when they want. >> we have one little girl just jumping in this morning. she was like i want to learn the nae nae. roger lee was i'm going teach you. he's teaching kids, teaching grand parents people of all ages how to dance and embrace our culture and celebrate this weekend. >> reporter: tell me about the other side of the dancers. >> we have a reenactment by a local actor who is portraying dr. martin luther king. so he's going to be going over some of his famous speeches. he's going to be doing poetry, he's going to be doing reading and again it gives you the culture, it brings you here
and it's lively and really brings you back to that moment in history and time. >> reporter: you guys are doing something very different than the traditional museum. you're like sort of bringing this all back to life. >> and that's what it is. it's an intra active visit filled with so many different things. family fun. and we wanted it to be exciting. we wanted to bring book the essence of it. part of the live paintings. people will come here not only to be educated but they'll be entertained and that's how you learn. you have to be entertained as well. >> reporter: you reference the millennials. you have to grab their attention and let people know the importance because so many times we think of mlk day as a day off but it really slob as we always hear a day on. >> it's a day of service. you're not supposed to be at home watching tv. you're supposed to be doing something with the community so as patti said earlier we're going so have citizens bank sponsors 1250 tickets so community organizations and people that normally don't get access to tickets, they will be able to be here so the under served communities.
it's about economic empowerment and bringing the community together. miss patty your last chance at a big invite for everyone at home. >> we hope everyone will come to the african-american museum in philadelphia 701 arch street friday saturday sunday and monday. tickets are two dollars saturday through monday and we have all those free tickets for outreach organizations. >> reporter: miss patti, rakia thank you so much. we appreciate you. mike and alex don't wait until monday. you can come and start partying tomorrow. >> tomorrow. >> come on down. >> you got a great job. hi, rakia. >> coming up on 8 o'clock here good day thursday january 14th 2016. >> the fox 29 studio. this is "good day" philadelphia. >> jackpot. we have three winners in the historic powerball drawing: bad news. nobody around here. one in california, one in

recognize him, he has died. >> what. >> the star was known for his roles in harry potter. also, oh, one of his most iconic roles was hans gruber the villian in the original die hard movie. he played the sheriff of nottinghamly in robin hood prince of thieves. >> according to his family the star was suffering from cancer. he was 69 years old. >> wow, what a character. oh, yeah, harry potter. >> yes professor. >> he was in love actually. >> that's right. >> lot of people were just watching last christmas season because they watch it every year. >> that's so true. >> law so good. that's too bad. one minute past 8 o'clock on this thursday morning. should we check in on one chris murphy?? >> we should. >> two hours ago 6 o'clock in the morning his goal was to eat the same amount of wings that the winner of the wing bowl last year won. >> say that three times. >> which was 440 wings.
444. >> in 26 minutes. >> how many on your bowl there. >> i've eaten about 14. >> that's it? >> i've had a few and i threw them in there to help him out. >> i got a few. >> here's what we got. you got to pick up the pace brother. >> that's disgusting. >> keep going. you have two more hours. >> two more hours of this. >> while we watch that gluttony, oh, i asked sue to suegle how did we come up the term jackpot for things like the lottery. >> it comes from poker. goes back to the 18 70's, you know the game jacks or better. >> yeah. >> if you won jacks or better you won the pot, you won the jackpot. it caught on to this very day. >> you two look like little playing cards. [laughter] >> we think alike, sue. >> speaking of, what is the number i already forgot. seven. >> i picked seven today.
which is better than yesterday. it's cold but not as windy as bus stop buddy shows you. wear your mittens, wear your jacket but temperatures are at least feel like they're in the 20's. yesterday at this time we had single digit wind chills. so, little bit of flurry activity. we were watching in the pocono mountains. seems to have dissipated. we'll see if any of that holds together. 28 degrees feels like 19 with a little bit of a wind but generally milder than yesterday when we only got to 29 degrees. today's high 42. so, bob kelly, plenty of sunshine out there but not as bitter as yesterday. >> here's a live look at the blue route 476 the on-ramp from route one disabled off to the shoulder there. couple of folks have had a rough go. i should say the cars are having a rough go in the cold temperatures the last couple of days. looking good on the benny. sun splashed, maybe warming us up just a little bit but still it's cold if you're out on the bus stop this morning. speaking of bus stop got a
disabled bus on the boulevard right at the oxford circle and then south on 95 slow going from approaching cottman down through girard about 9 miles an hour and there's the leftover from yesterday in mount laurel that sewer main break they're still working on it hartford at 38. they're asking everyone in mount laurel refrain from using a lot of water. take the shower make it quick and make sure you brush your teeth quick as well and hopefully they'll have that repaired by the afternoon. schuylkill expressway as we go for a ride little sun glare at conshy and westbound leaving town heavy from the boulevard up the hill into gladwyne. mike and alex, back over to you. >> okay. i guess you know by now you're in the a billionaire. you're going have to go to work today. >> yeah, we're already here and if we can do it, you can do it. >> hey dave kinchen. i see the numbers right there. i don't know that i have any of them. >> but someone in our area does. >> millionaire. >> yes. >> reporter: i think one of the numbers -- i had one of those numbers in terms how
many tickets i bought but that's about it. you know it's a fact that here at the 7-eleven in bridesburg a lot of people came out here last night hoping they might be millionaires or billionaires but it's also a fact that there are no billionaires at least in relation to this latest contest in this area but here is what we do know. look at this. a massive crowd outside of a 7-eleven in suburban l.a. actually just outside of anaheim where a california lottery officials say a winning ticket for that powerball jackpot was in fact sold and the win are might even be in that crowd. you never know. we do know that store is going to get a pretty good cut. officials say there were winning tickets sold in tennessee and florida. that means there are at least three winners for the $1.5 billion jackpot. powerball does say, get this, that there was a 2 million-dollar match by power play winner sold somewhere in new jersey. we don't know that exact location. also two 1 million-dollar match five winners in jersey and pa but of course those
locations are unknown and those folks are millionaires until uncle sam of course takes his cut as well at least. it is a historic jackpot and good for pennsylvania, the pennsylvania lottery says that ticket sales brought in more than $60 million for programs that benefit older pennsylvania residents and that's based on sales for this whole jackpot that dates back really november 15th if you can believe it. >> that 7-eleven in california probably a thousand people showed up. if i had the winning ticket i would not tell anybody that that crowd. >> i wouldn't. >> i have a powerball ticket worth $1.6 billion. i'd be running home. >> reporter: and the person is probably going to see who is going to help them get their big chunk. millions going to that store. >> that's the way it works any movement i thought it was a set sum not a percentage any movement we'll have to look it up. >> they sure did look excited in california at the store there. >> i'd be nervous. >> dave thanks a lot. real quickly here, too,
one of the tickets was sold just outside of memphis, tennessee. in a town called mumford. it only has 6,000 people in that town. >> oh. >> can you imagine. >> everyone is going to be knocking on that door. let's say three people take in it a lump sum. after taxes they'll have to split 500,000,003 ways. that is about 160 million a piece n a town of 6,000 people this dude or woman has $165 million. >> wow. >> can't imagine. >> do you stay in town. >> yeah, really. i'd leave town. >> here's something weird. this is out of the state of florida. we now know there's that winning powerball ticket in florida. what we don't know is who got it yet. we heard yesterday about a mega pool in tampa. so, two guys you saw there set up a huge group that all started with a simple facebook post only to attract a couple friends but ended up with
almost 300 people in the pool. so, the minimum buy in for these guys. >> how much. >> 500 bucks. >> what. >> to play. and the group printed 72,500 tickets. >> wait a minute, wait a minute. there was somebody who won in florida. >> i know. so. >> so it could be them. >> it could be them. but if it's them, you'd have to split up your $160,000,000.300 ways. >> oh. >> staff? my math is bad. what would that be. >> 1.6 million divided by. >> no. >> 500 -- 500 million divided by 290. >> 1.7. >> our producer says. >> aid each get 1.7 million. >> more than i have now. >> 500 million divided by. >> before taxes. >> no, no, i think that's all the taxs are gone. >> yeah, yeah. >> okay. >> so, they would get $1.7 million all 290 of them. >> what a way to do it though to have all those possible come together and $500 just to buy in. >> still not bad.
>> probably didn't increase their odds by much. is there a bigger show than "empire" on fox television. >> nope. >> well, "empire" has been such a huge hit here for us at fox the show making millions and millions of dollars. >> but a local man says -- and we're also proud of the fact that there's a lot of philly ties, the lyon family in the show they're from philly, some of the actors are from philly,. >> lee daniels. >> lee daniels he's from filly. >> terrence. >> we're very proud of it but there's a local man who says all the money and all the attention and everything it's getting it should be his. >> why. >> he says he created the show and now he's suing. >> let's learn more about this guy his name is clayton prince. >> he's a philly guy who says he pitched the idea for the hit show back in 2008. so he filed a lawsuit in federal court and he says that he pitched the show to producer lee daniels at an event sponsored by the greater philadelphia film office. >> ooh. >> his show it was called cream was about a family from philadelphia involved in the
recording industry. now fox is not commenting on this lawsuit but he says hey, this was my idea. >> i'll be darned. this is from his web site. prince himself was a drama major at the high school for the performing -- creative and performing arts and attended temple university for a year before landing a professional acting job appearing in the movie hair spray and it was he was on an episode of "the cosby show" back in the day. >> this is not the first time "empire" has gotten flak. last january 50-cent he said the empire copied his marketing series. that's not it. then diddy he said the show is ripped off of his life story. >> kind of his life. >> but the show's cree creator danny strong says no that's not the case. he says if anything it was
jay-z who served as inspiration for lucious lyon especially given the fact that jay-z -- >> he was young. >> he's fast in now. >> well, if agave i would sue now. he just admitted it's about me. >> i don't know. it's interesting though 'cause i was reading more about it about the gentleman who claims -- >> clayton. >> yes. >> cream, can you imagine if "empire" was called cream. >> that's okay. >> cream rises to the top. >> that's true. i didn't look at it that way. >> this is the bizarre photo -- let's just put it out. let's put it out. no, no, no, go t to the wide shot. come on. >> what is it? >> that's it. what does that look like chris murphy. >> carrots. >> carrots in the back of pickups. >> what's wrong with that. >> that's an all gender restroom and that's a man eating chicken wings. >> what is going on.
>> you're not going on. >> he has the pooh chills. >> oh, right. oh, my gosh. it took a second for that to like -- wow. he's been eating chicken wings for two hours. he's sick. listen to this. so back to the picture of the stinking trucks. those are not carrots. >> what? >> supposed to look like carrots and it does. inside each one of those carrots it's not a carrot at all, that's marijuana. >> oh. >> 2 truckloads of marijuana disguised as carrots. this is in mexico. how about that. so, a dog was able to help discover -- they started sniffing around the trucks and said these aren't carrots. that's grass. >> my gosh. >> last month police were able to uncover more than $1 million in drugs that were disguised as cucumbers and carrots. >> i'm no expert. >> on what. >> carrots or marijuana. >> bringing in stuff like that. but it seems like would you want to put it in open
flatbeds. wouldn't you want to put it in a bag or grocery bag or something like a box and then if they want to open it then they'll take a quick look. >> i disagree completely. >> why. >> if it's covered it's suspicious. >> that's not how they transport carrots. they usually in like bags or something. >> how do you know how they transport carrots. you're a carrot expert. >> i like eating carrots and i don't think they're all out in the open air. >> hold on. i would think out in the fields carrots grow -- yeah they grow out of the ground right. >> you don't know how carrots grow. >> your harvesting carrots in a field. wouldn't you just yank them out of the ground and throw them in the back of a truck. >> i'm thinking transporting them to the grocery store. >> no, this is from a field. >> okay. >> then you go wash them, bag them and send them to the grocery store. >> i was thinking of the part they've already been warned. so this is fresh out the ground. >> yeah. >> soil on it and everything. >> wasn't any soil. looks like it was made of, what, plastic or rub are. >> seems kind of obvious.
all right we cleared that up. >> where is bugs bunny when you need him. that's all folks. >> what's up doc. >> what's up doc. >> at some point we're going see sue serio. >> that's all folks. get our phrases state. we're watching some snow in the pocono mountains. still some snow to the north of us but it's kind of dissipating. watching an area to our west. this looks to be losing some strength. 28 degrees in philadelphia right now. 16 mount pocono. 23 reading. 34 in wildwood and 33 in atlantic city. some milder air moving in out of the southwest and the winds are not nearly the issue they were yesterday with those single digit wind chills that we had all morning long. average high is 40. we were way below average yesterday with a high of only 29 degrees. remember sunday when we got to 65. the rollercoaster ride continues 'cause it's 42 degrees for today. not as bitter as yesterday. 50 tomorrow and then, ooh, i did a little i dream of
jeannie there. 47 degrees on saturday with some rain friday night into saturday and then another round of rain sunday night which means with a cold front that it will be bitter cold once again for the martin luther king holiday but it will not be raining so hopefully your service project will be indoors, bob kelly because it's cold for monday. >> indoor project day. good morning. getting ready to step outside this morning. live look at 202 northbound an accident at 401 in the construction zone as soon as you come out of the squeeze here so we're backed up from the west chester pike on up. we're throwing some sun glare in there this morning. i-95 southbound out of the northeast heavy in cottman down through girard. and an accident on actually it's a disabled bus on the roosevelt boulevard right at the oxford circle right there in front of sain saint martin parish. marlton diner load up the news van we do it every thursday different spot from nine until 10:00 a.m. i'll be at the
marlton diner. bring the kids i'll bring the tv cameras and we'll put them on television later on this morning around 9 o'clock. north on 95. >> bob. >> are you going to take chris murphy with you? he's hungry. >> i don't know. i'm afraid he's going to get sick in the news van. >> he doesn't look well. [laughter] >> i said if we had a different type of beverage other than coffee sitting next to him. >> a beer. >> things would go down much easier. >> thanks bob. >> keep going. >> we'll see you in marlton. >> you got it. >> 8:16. let's get into this story here the prestigious all girls school agnes irwin school in rosemont has put together a task force to look into future school policy regarding trance center student. this is after a student in the school identified as transgender. i believe a junior. the student made the news public to classmates just last friday: in the meantime the
clerical board of education expected to adopt a policy that allows transgender students to use restrooms based on the gender they identify with. joining us once again nellie fitzpatrick, the city director of the lgbt affairs. good to see you. >> good to see you. >> did i set that up right. >> you sure did. and personally i applaud agnes irwin for setting up a task force. >> the school. >> looking at policy and seeing what they can do now that they have a child that that has come forward and said to them that they are transgender. >> so we should now treat this junior as a boy. >> correct. this kid's a boy. so, he's a boy. he goes by male pronouns and whatever his preferred name s i heard that they have an assembly where they sat the students down, all of his fellow classmates and said, look, here's this kid's name. he uses male pronouns. it's that simple. he's now a boy. >> we encourage you to now treat him as a boy and use his
pronoun. >> correct. >> that's a good idea have an assembly just put it out on the table. >> sure in this case that was best. i hope that the child had some input into whether or not that is how this child wantd that to come out. >> right. >> there are many schools in philadelphia where we have transgendered children that nobody knows that they're transgendered, they're just a kid going school. so every school is different. this is an all girls school. >> it was important to him to let everybody know seems like it. >> he kind of will to. unless he wanted to stay in the closet and hiding who he is. he's at an all girls school and he's a boy so that maxis that different. the thing that's interesting though is this actually is nothing new even for these single gendered schools. >> why does seem new to me? i'm just unaware. >> you just haven't heard about it. and quite frankly these
efforts to protect kids like this and people talking about things like this in the media just haven't happened before. i was doing a little research and i'm not sure if you're familiar with her but professor jennifer finney boylan you might recognize her from i am kate the tv show caitlin jenner. >> yeah. >> she's a graduate. she graduated excuse me i have a little bit of a cold. she graduated in the 70's from the haverford school which is an all boys preparatory school. >> i didn't know that. >> it's about less than 3 miles down the road from agnes irwin. >> nelly can i hit you up with some stupid questions now. >> sure. >> i'm trying to figure this out and use the right words and stuff. >> right. >> okay. so, this junior identifies as a boy. >> correct. >> but this boy is in an all girls school. should he leave the school? what are the rules? don't you have to be a girl to go to the school? but he's boy. >> he's a boy. >> so what do we do about that? he wants to stay with the school and i think he
should. >> he should. >> been there his whole high school career but stay. i get the idea. you know it's going come up. i bet i already have a tweet about it. >> i'm sure you do. this particular student my understanding is that he's in the 11th grade. you know, these are going to be new places there we venture into and i think that's students themselves especially the particular individual who is trans identified needs to have a lot of input about where they can be safely. >> next dumb question. hold on. i've got a couple of them here and i got this on twitter already this morning. you knew it was coming. i don't know why when we bring up these different cases, we immediately think of the past room and restroom. chaos will ensue. >> right. that's where everybody immediately goes. and i suppose that's just part of our nature to worry about bathrooms. however, i'm really not sure, you know, maybe the men's room is slightly different but i don't go to the bathroom to look at other people's genitalia. i just don't see this as being
a problem. here in philadelphia -- >> i don't either. >> you use the bathroom that matches your gender. they do the same things in the school. clerical is working on it. >> as you know the city of philadelphia we have these all gender bathrooms. it's like going to star us. >> right. >> still men and women, it's just a restroom. >> all of the single occupancy bathrooms here in philadelphia are as of january 18th that's our effective date, 33 must be gender neutral and what that means is that there needs to be a sign on any single occupancy bathroom that labels it as what it is. a bathroom. >> it's a bathroom. >> a restroom a water closet whatever you wants to call it. not men or women or some other gendered space. >> good to see you. >> always good to see you. >> some hotty in the green room. >> i'm going look for that. no chicken wings. >> you don't want any wings? we got plenty. in about 91 minutes we'll take you live to hollywood. we'll see -- i'm on sly watch. will sylvester stallone get an
oscar for what do you call it. >> "creed." >> "creed" but what do they call it. >> supporting. >> best supporting actor. this is going to get an oscar i have a feeling this evans and leo will probablref --ref v. >> if you're going to the oscars you want to look tiptop. good morning. >> good morning. >> we've shown you how to suck the fat off but what about get rid of that double chin freezing it off. we're going to sit this guy up with a little situation and dr. bruce is going to tell us how that works. we'll be back in a few minutes. you're going look great i suspect.
the republicans in harrisburg were fighting each other over the state budget. that's right. each other. the republican state senate passed a responsible budget that "begins" to fund education but the republican house of representatives has insisted on a budget that fails to fund education and balloons the deficit. call your legislator, tell them to pass a budget that's right for pennsylvania.
