8:08 am
is getting kind of fun or at least interesting. republican presidential candidate ted cruz is apologizing sort of for comments that he made during thursday night's debate. but everyone understands that the values in new york city are socially liberal or pro abortion or pro gay marriage focused around money and the media. now that statement set off a whirlwind in new york and it led to a controversial new york daily news cover telling gop candidates to go back to canada. he doesn't like new york. take a look at that. now cruz is apologizing to new yorkers, but he's in the apologizing for his statement. instead al post office apologized for their elected officials. well, you're right, donald trump clinton and andrew was owe have all demanded an apologize. i'm happy to apologize. i apologize to the millions of new yorkers that have been let

8:11 am
8:12 am
8:13 am
for the loved ones we've all lost. for the families that we can still safe, let's make america the country that cures cancer once and for all. > a loft i goal set by president obama, a desire to rid the world of cancer. that initiative came during tuesday night's state of the union address, but it's not just anyone leading the charge. the president tasked joe biden. you should remember that the vice-president lost his cancer just last year. he announced some of his proposals at the university of pennsylvania hospital in philadelphia yesterday. > when you are engaged with someone you love who is fighting for their life, you become acquainted with at least the parameters of what they're
8:14 am
dealing with and you, as dad will tell you, you do everything in your power, to be able to learn as much about the fight that is underway as you can. biden says the goal is to find an absolute cure to all cancers, but in the meantime at least get tot point that cancers can be managed and become chronic diseases. joining us live and to talk a little bit more about this, dr. karen newton and she is chair of sidney chemical cancer school. > good morning. >> good morning, thank you for having me. > good names in the news, david bowie, alan rick man, the celebrities kind of getting the high prohill, but is that pushing us toward this type of initiative? >> i think what's pushing us toward this initiative is the greater awareness on the part of
8:15 am
the americans, patients and the scientific community about the importance and impact of cancer. right now we have 14 million americans living with the history of cancer in this country and in part due to advances that are allowing people to either be curd of or live longer with their kiss disease. we still know that one in four americans die of their cancer. so we have some work to do. > you listen to the president, obviously very loft i goals. is it real ballistic to have that cure for understand contactor the at any point in the near future? >> i think that's an excellent question. i think there is no one uniform answer. what we need to take into account is that cancer is really more than 200 different diseases. in some of those we've made remarkable gains and cures. in others we're really starting to learn what the basis of the disease is and how we might treat it better. do i think it's a realistic
8:16 am
goal, yes? i think some of those will come in the short term and others will take a little longer. we're activitily looking at this. it takes a partnership between the scientific and the clinical community. here in philadelphia we have of the 69 cancer centers that have been designated by the national cancer institute as these night is areas where discoveries are fast tracked into the clinics. i look to philadelphia to continue to lead in this area. with all the progress we've made shall what's interesting is cancer that is not one of those diseases that have a shortage of funding. we always need more funding, but we're certain all on top of this and the need for it. if it's not money what needs to change to find the cure? or is it more money and research. >> i think it's both. certainly more research is going to be required. again, we have these 14 and a half million americans living with cancer because of the gains that we've had already. just in the last fiscal year we've had nine new cancer therapeutics approved.
8:17 am
six previously identified agents approved for cancer therapy. and over 800 new medicines and vaccines currently in clinical trial. so we're at this cusp where discoveries are starting to come to fruition in the clinic. we're running those clinical trials allowing access for patients around the country to those clinical trials is a major endeavor. these are things even beyond the funding that needç to happen. in addition what i think we're looking for, especially in this era of precision medicine are standardizations for the way that we look genome include at tumors and try to understand their basis and treat the patient's tumor more precisely. we need to develop standards across the us, hopefully funded tests so that we can treat a patient's tumor in a more individual fashion. and also to set up mechanisms for sharing. i think we heard the vice-president talk about this, about the importance of breaking down silos.
8:18 am
as director of the cancer center i would certainly endorse that endeavor. and so looking at national databases so that we can share information. we have an exceptional responder here in philadelphia, a patient that did exceptionally well on a particular regimen. we'd like to be able to share that type of information across the us. of course protecting the patient's confidential, but just this is the kind of tumor that they had, they really responded well to this type of intervention, are you seeing that, too. that sort of discovery will help us fast track nationwide. it is encouraging that those loft i goals. it sounds like we're taking realistic steps towards ehem. > thanks for spending time with us this morning. >> my pleasure. > let's get a check of our forecast. dave, i got this which comes from diana. i am waiting for you to tell us what to do today, she has three
8:19 am
kids, 17, 13 and 8, what should we do. >> a lot happening around the city for the martin luther king long weekend here. check them out. they should be pretty good today, because rain was the key many it's gone. it's cleared out. that's what we have right now. a little bit of sunshine through those clouds and a few people are out this morning, just a little chilly, though. it's all above freezing, so the roadways are when the. nothing got down below freezing. visibility is at 6 miles. still a little low. it's cold in mount pocono, a few smoke flakes tried to fall there, 35. right now it's into the 40s but with that season we could push the temperatures up post the 50-degrees. wheretoing about the cold air. happy birthday bill, how soon will the cold come in i need to ride sunday night. it will be windy sunday night, but this is not the cold artic blast that we're talking about. the rain clears out. the wind will pick up sunday afternoon. it increases and becomes more

8:21 am
>> the airline card. that's really hot. unless you are going to use that card over and over with the same airline or the same hotel it's probably not worth it. what does everyone use. >> i like the cash back card. some cards pay you up to 2 percent back believe it or not on all your purchases. >> every time. > spend a thousand bucks, get two percent back. hey, jen,ive that you ever gone through a checkout line and they open you a discount if you open up a credit card. >> my husband says i'm not allowed. very smart man. you're better off with another type of cashed. did you just say my husband is right. >> he's right in this one. > you'll really be proud of me because i only have a couple of cards in my wallet that i use. the others are just on the shelf. i never touch them. they're in my husband's closet. maybe not so good. you want to close those old. >> i have to break up with them.

9:05 am
learn as much about the fight that is underway as you can. biden says, the goal, of course is to cure cancer, but at least while working towards that get to the point that all cancers can be managed and become chronic diseases. this is just a heart breaking story. there is a family from new jersey dealing with late stage leukemia of their four year old son. they wanted to bring him home but then a pipe burst in their homemaking their home unlivable. in the last several weeks oncologists cold his parents the cancer had spread throughout his body and they're not able to continue treatment. the plan was to bring him home with hospice care, but that same day a pipe burst in the family's cape may county trailer home. logan's toys, his toys, his bed and the family's belongings were all destroyed. but there is hopefully a light at the end of the tunnel. through social media, neighbors

9:13 am
the sands in betula hem, the pass, and valley forge casino. all saw gains. > it's 2016 and we'll be hearing a lot politics. but we have some major political stories in our other areas. as bruce gordon explains, these are the types of things that happen only in philly. i'm bruce gordon, the january inaugeration of elected officials following the victory in november reminds me that president obama's quote that, quote, elections have consequences, what the president meant is that the in wither in many election gets to set the agenda. here in philadelphia we've turned that expression on itself its ear. elections have consequences you say, how about the reelection of city commissioner of randy clark. he's responsible for running elects in the city of philadelphia. numerous reports shows that clark, a democratic seems to
9:14 am
have a hard time finding his place to vote, an even bigger problem going to work. with the help of a fellow commissioner, a republican, no less, clark keeps his commission as the head of that three-member panel. then there's wilson good jr. back in may they decided they had enough from the long time at large councilman and kicked him out of the office. his last day on the job was january 4. he wasn't without paycheck for long, because four days later city council president darryl clark hired him at a salary several thousand dollars a year higher than what he made as councilman. that's a good gig. finally there's josh shapiro, another democrat. back in november voters in montgomery county voted shapiro to another term as county commissioner, a hugely important commissioner helping to run pennsylvania's third most popular county. what happened? about five
9:15 am
minutes after he took the oath of office he announced formally he wants another job, that of state attorney general. he joined a crowded field looking to replace the embattled kathleen cane. perhaps you heard about her legal battles. so to review, voters in our area return to office a man who rarely shows up for work. they voted out a councilman who friends immediately hired him back with a raise in salary and they voted a man who run their county only to find out he's no longer interested in the job. elections may have consequences, but around here it's hard to figure out what they are. bruce gordon. > there you go, only in philly and around the area. > taking a look out in allentown, look, a little foggy, but generally a pretty nice day, a little chilly. is it going to hold up? >> it's improving compared to what we had last night p. the heavy rain, you may have slept through it or it woke you

9:30 am
philadelphia at fifth and park streets friday around 3:00. a 45 year old man was found unconscious on the sidewalk with critical injuries to his head, hips and legs. he was transported to em t many university hospital where he remains this morning. last night we talk to a local cab driver who says he knows the victim personally. he's a nice guy, he's a, woulding hard guy. he used to go and play domino with me when he got a day of on. you know, he's a nice guy. > that man says fifth and hunting park streets is very busy and unfortunately he sees accidents all too often. at this point police don't have a description because again there were no live witnesses, but they are going through surveillance video to get some more information. reporting live in philadelphia, i'm jennifer joyce, fox 29 news. > of all the days of this holiday weekend this is probably
9:31 am
the best one to go for a walk outside and that's exactly what weekend wendy is going to didment the mural arts promise sponsoring a walking tour around our city. it will take about an hour and it's all centered around the martin luther king holiday and the great mural around our subtleties that center around the civil rights movement. it begins at the african american museum and it all starts at 1:00 this afternoon. dave, things are looking a whole lot better for the afternoon. better for the afternoon compared to what we had this morning. here's our scale, around 11, pretty good, about 1:00, but then it goes down to bill's favorite category, blah, but the wind picks up, 30 miles an hour, late this afternoon. not bad tomorrow morning, but after that we are getting cold, another blast of wind coming in. it looks pretty good out there. i got to go see my dad tomorrow. every dad has a birthday this weekend it looks like.

ultimate doppler showed heavy rain, south jersey, right around the coast in del, it's gone. look at the temperatures, just above freezing, climbing up into the upper 40s and then it will start to drop overnight tonight. we're dropping into the mid-40s, the wind picks up. so it will feel a lot colder. tomorrow night is the second blast of the artic air. thank you, dave. > now, i'm getting tired of sayingç this, the playoffs have begun without our eagles, but the birds are still the talk of philadelphia sports. two new developments this week, first it looks as if former eagles quarterback doug peterson will be our new head coach and second, chip kelly has been fired by the 49s. it didn't take very long. but what does all this mean to our football in philadelphia. good morning, how are we doing? >> good. what do you think? let's start
9:33 am
off with doug, do you think he's a right choice. >> i think it was an interesting search and i use that term loosely because if you look at it jeffrey lori, back to the comfortable choice and that was doug peterson. he knew from his time with andy read and you look at the other candidates that were out there that the eagles refused to interview and that's my biggest problem and that's eagles fans problem as well as he didn't open it up. one that turned him down, tom coughlin, adams gates, the hot hand, everybody wanted him and henned up with miami and here we are with doug peterson, the safe choice. should it scare us, you went back, i don't want to call him a company man because he's not here yet, but you went back to the old school making no waves choice. >> it scarce me. you're going do have calm eagle l fans, believe me they exist as well that say let's let the guy
9:34 am
coach a game before we fire him in 2017. for me i don't know too much about doug peterson to really go crazy right now. that's why i like him because this guy knows how to deal with philadelphia fans. we want some reaction, we want some passion. knows what it's like. i think that's what they looked at. they don't want some outsider from california. jeffrey laurie wanted somebody that was nice to the secretary. that's what he wanted. > he wanted someone enough that is tough enough to deal with us because we care. > who was better? >> like i said there were candidates out there that i would have interviewed josh mack daniels. especially when tom coughlin stepped out. it seemed like it was a panic higher, we got to higher somebody right now. you can't interview him until the playoffs are over. let's not take a step back and see what else is out there.
9:35 am
the quick shot, i'm talking about chip kelly am he gets the job. he also gets column in chap knack possibly. did we give up on chip kelly too quickly. >> it's interesting because was you're theory on how it was going to play out next year? was there a chance that chip kelly was going to start the season two and five and two and six then i'm okay with jeff laurie then i'm all right with him pulling the plug on chip kelly because eventually he was going to get fired next year. the link was empty how many times this season. so chip kelly was not going to make it through the course of 16 games. but with that being said there were some pretty good coaches that have been fired. they've already done it sometimes. you bring in an andy read that was an offensive coordinator, you come in and you can establish your own -- >> sure. > i love your optimism. >> she's positive. > we want to know what you think about this one. are you happy with our head

i drive to the hoop. i drive a racecar. i have a driver. his name is carl. but that's not what we all have in common. we talked to our doctors about treatment with xarelto®. xarelto® is proven to treat and help reduce the risk of dvt and pe blood clots. xarelto® is also proven to reduce the risk of stroke in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. you know, taking warfarin, i had to deal with that blood testing routine. i couldn't have a healthy salad whenever i wanted. i found another way. yeah, treatment with xarelto®. hey, safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while
9:38 am
on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® is the number one prescribed blood thinner in its class. well that calls for a round of kevin nealons. make mine an arnold palmer. same here. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®.

9:52 am
showing us that we can go from old to new. > correct. i messed up with the color. it's purple. i thought it was blue when i bought it in the can. but this cabinet originated -- i did all this stuff last night. it was a black cabinet first. the cabinet was basically 50 bucks. it's kind of an inexpensive cabinet. i'll show you the inside. it was kind of crummy, falling apart. it was black and it kind of blended into all the rest of the furniture. there it is last night in my shop. it's the same exact cab n. all i did was use one can of spray paint. there's all suits of new finishes. you can hear it's empty. this is the actual can i used. it's a chalk i finish. so it's kind of a newer finish, almost like a milk paint. it's not pristine. tot touch it has a little bit of a softer feel to it. it looks brand new. one can of spray paint. you can see furniture from your attic and you can actually repurpose it simply with one can
9:53 am
of spray paint and some new handles. and you changed the hardware. >> and i changed the hardware. so basically new nobody. the hardware i had in my house in the drawer. one can, this is five dollars and it took me 30 minutes to do this. h cabinet over here, same thing, what that one was an older white cabinet. this is actually, physically from my attic. this is a favorite cabinet of mine. it was white when i started. you can open it up and see how crummy it is on the inside. that's sort of what it was on the outside. it was really junk i. i did the same thing. i like the chalk i finish, but again you can make your cabinets look whatever you want. this wit settle l into the old school rustic design. > rustickish. >> you definitely did learn it from my show. that's how i talk. this the distressed look, the pottery barn look isç very in. people like the character in it.
9:54 am
it's very simple to apply the paint, sand it off where you want to sand it off and then use a glaze. this is not a stain. it's a glaze. think of it like years of tobacco smoke wiped on top of it. it gives you instantaneous age and it darkens it a little bit. i love it. i'm going home and i'm going to do some work. i'm leaving here and going right to the home show. the property brothers are going to be there presenting today as well as chip wade. it's going to be a great time and i'll be at the philly home show on february 13. >> and i'm coming. you can check out the philly home and garden show in oaks. the show runs from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. tomorrow. tickets are 10-dollars at the door. jeff will be there. the alex holly room has been designed and i'm coming there as well. > i'll see you there. >> pleasure. we'll be right back.
