7:10 am
criticism. am people say he insights some of this violence. encouraging people in his crowd when it comes to some of the protestors, but this is the most recent example. we'll examine to stay on top of this. it's not going away any time soon. we all want to lose a few pounds r now and then, but there are some people who seemingly always need to take off ten pounds. >> that is me. > no, it's not. coming up, who is most likely to be on what we call a permanent diet? i feel like i've been on a diet since i was 1 years old. first, we have a new law that's taking affect monday, it will prevent employers from asking about criminal histories in job interviews. it's controversial. is it protecting rights or is it bad for business. we'll discuss it coming up. > share with us, show us your irish. use your fox tag fox 29 irish. i know a lot of you have

7:13 am
controversial new piece of legs goes into affect in philadelphia
7:14 am
on monday. this has been sparking some pretty heated debate out the city. the legislation is referred to as ban the box. it makes it illegal for employers to do a criminal background check on potential employees until they decide to offer them a job. some say it create needed opportunities for ex offenders, but others think it's an unfair burden on employers. people have been debating it, discussing it and so we wanted to bring that discussion to you. joining us life this morning, philly.com colonies john feather land who opposes ban the box. and professor of criminal justice jennifer taylor. good p morning. >> you have an opposition to this. the two of you were going back and forth on twitter. tell me why you have strong oppositions. first let me tell you that i'd like to thank professor taylor on this. there are two sides.
7:15 am
i actually did a lot. i did a followup piece that went on air yesterday. i learned quite a about it from her. we would like to see people coming out of prisons have a second chance because if they can't get a job they're not going to be able to stay out of prison. however shall the issue is that ban the box has been in effect in philly a couple of years now. the issue is that there is a new revision of ban the box. they're essentially three differences between the updated version and the new one. the new one you can no longer inquire about the criminal history until after you've made a conditional offer to them. the second is you can only go back seven years in the criminal history. the third is it used to apply to employers that had ten or more people. now it is regardless of the size of the company. > now e, i got to say i appreciate the back and forth you guys had and the fact that you're learning from each other. and professor, you said that he learned from you, you've kind of
7:16 am
opened his eyes, but in that back and forth you said that there are two misconceptions that people justin to go forward with. explain them to us. the first major misconception is that employers function under a lot of assumptions and store types about returning citizens. there are absolutely a lot of people who come home who still have vocational social needs that make employment really challenging for them but there are also lots of people who come home with a strong work ethic, a level of resiliency and a sincere desire to support their families through legitimate employment and if ban the box goes in affect and could help reduce resituateddism rates this gives the community a better chance at hole. they expect ex offender to be reoffending. we know the longer somebody is out, the more likely it is t@ex're going to stay clean if
7:17 am
they are employed. the risk they hire, the risk of reoffending goes down the longer the period of time that they've been home. this is something that we need to continue expanding on. we're up against the clock. i want to thank both of you for spending sometime with us. let's get the twitter battle going back and forth. let us know what you think. we appreciate it. you can tell us what you think. just make sure you use our hashtag, fox 29 good day. let's look at immediate poconos. they still have snow. a lot of the resorts are still open. people are thinking about going into spring break. maybe they'll be getting away up there, dave warren. the warming weather will make it difficult to keep the snow. but it is fun to go up there. >> they can make some snow today, but it's been so warm recently where they've had some problems here trying to make the snow. we do have a lot happening here this weekend. here is one event happening
7:18 am
right here in philadelphia. what a great day for a run. the 2016 run benefiting special olympics is starting soon. what's the weather going to be like for the raise. a perfect weather for the run. 56 to 62 by 1:00. the clouds will continue to increase. there's sunshine out here. 44-degrees. light breeze about seven miles. relative humidity at 49 percent. 50s, maybe just above 60 degrees. we will climb above 60. not nearly as warm as it's been. dropping into the 40s overnight. clouds will increase and it will keep the temperature from dropping too much. if you're traveling maybe a little cooler north and west. only into the mid to 40s. the question is the rain, though.
7:19 am
we have a big parade tomorrow. here's what to expect. we'll have some clouds increasing and the warmer air is trying to move back in and that brings in the clouds. we have to say a few showers tomorrow and it's ice it lated. 12:00 is the kickoff for the parade. the showers begin to move in, maybe one or two rain drops coming down. they really become a about it more widespread by about 4 or 5:00 and that's in the western suburbs. we do have to put some rain in the forecast. rain or show is the parade. look for a few showers coming in with the temperature in the mid to low 60s. 70s coming a lit later. > it better not rain on our parade. we'll keep marching right on through it. it will be fine. as we said, tomorrow is the big day, st. patrick's day parade. you know this started -- you know because you can did a story on this 1771. this his the fun part about this
7:20 am
year's parade. you're going to hear rebel songs, rebel dances, why, because this year's theme honors the heros who fought for irish independent. villanova is back. coming up we have reaction from coach jay wright following last night's game at madison square garden. here's your winning lottery numbers, hope you have them. good luck.

i'm chris bosh. when i was sidelined with blood clots in my lung, it was serious. fortunately, my doctor had a game plan. treatment with xarelto®. hey guys! hey, finally, somebody i can look up to... ...besides arnie. xarelto® is proven to treat
7:52 am
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's limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. you know, i tried warfarin, but the blood testing and dietary restrictions... don't get me started on that. i didn't have to. we started on xarelto®. nice pass. 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 sk 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 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®,
7:53 am
tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. you know xarelto® is the #1 prescribed blood thinner in its class. that's a big win. it is for me. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary strictions. treatment with xarelto®. ...was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®. time now to introduce you to one off our regions spectacular high school athlete. this week we are showcasing a wrestler. rowan university student and fox 29 junior reporter it in a contend owe introduces us to our athlete of the week. buena high school, he's senior a and captain of the wrestling team. he works day in and day out. every minute of practice he sets an example. he sets an example here, in the classroom and just the way he carries himself in h life. coast mass could he has had the
7:54 am
opportunity to coach breast toll before his career. it took him a few years to perform up to the level he performs at today. wrestling has always been a california evening. it builds a lot of character and helps you develop as a person. the sport didn't come natural to him and he had to keep at it. it wasn't until seventh grade that i said this kid could be someone great. it's more mental than physical. it's hard work and determination rather than the skills. i'd rather win at the end of of the match by just being tougher than the other guy. he's willing to win matches in over time. he's willing to take him down to the very end. that's because how tough he is. he placed second in district 31 this year which qualified him to wrestle at the region 8 tournament. after batting through regions he qualified to compete in states.

welcome back. we need to get your opinion about this one. there's a new service that will allow you to watch movies at home the same day they come out into the theaters. >> it's called screening room. it's the brainstorm of shawn parker and napster fame. for $150 you'd buy a special set top box. >> after paying $50 to watch the movie, people familiar with the idea say several major studios are interested in the service, but there are no firm deals just yet. $50 is about what it cost to go to the movies. >> that's a good point. initially i was thinking it was so expensive. if you have a family with kids. withç popcorn. it's just to walk in the door. forget the candy and the popcorn. >> i'll deny this if i wasn't saying it on tv. there's a guy on 52nd street who has them for five dollars.
8:42 am
that would be wrong. the whole point of paying to go out, is you go out. i'm not going to pay $50 to watch in my own house. >> if you have kids, to pay a babysitter. >> this is for the whole family. i'm too cheap, i wouldn't pay $50. i can wait a couple weeks. 1.49 on red box. >> no movie i want to see that bad. > we want to get your opinion on this. we're cheap stakes so we wouldn't actually do this. would you pay to see movies in your own living room? h these are the ones right the same day they come out. i'll pay to watch them just because it's keeper than going out. 50 bucks. this is your instant reaction poll. you can vote on fox 29.com or fox 29 yes or fox 29 no. > it only has to be one no.
