this viral video is still smoking today, friday, november this viral video is still smoking today, friday, november 5th, 2010. captions paid for by nbc-universal television and good morning, everyone. welcome to "today" on a friday morning. i'm matt lauer. >> and i'm meredith vieira. literally, the calm before the storm in port-au-prince, haiti, as now hurricane tomas bears down. >> the big, big concern this morning is the safety of the 1.3 million people who are still living in tent cities following january's earthquake there. up to 10 inches of rain is expected in some areas of that n nation. emergency crewsear that combined with high winds could produce dangerous mud slides. we're going to go live to haiti for the very latest in just a couple of minutes. then to politics. the latest fallout over that big win for republicans in tuesday. they picked up at least 60 seats
7:02 am
in the house and at least six in the senate, but could that number of republican gains in the senate been even higher? this woman, christine o'donnell, lost in delaware. a lot of people say the people she beat in the primary could have won. we'll talk to her a little later. and an up close and personal look at the world's most expensive. it's valued at a billion -- that's with a "b," $1 billion. now let's take a look at that hurricane taking at aim at haiti. >> reporter: the winds are calm, but the rains have been falling steadily since last night. southwestern haiti, though, is much closer to that hurricane. the fear is the rains could cause mud slides and flash floods, which is why yesterday the haitian government tried to evacuate one of the big tent camps here, but ran into trouble trying to do that. with the storm approaching, the
7:03 am
haitian government had hoped to clear out one of its most vulnerable tent camps, filled with 6,000 earthquake victims. but when u.n. workers offered to move the children, disabled, and elderly to a hospital for safety, they met with loud resistance from residents. the confrontation became so heated some of the aid workers had to leave the camp. >> there have been some security incidents, so our registration teams had to pull out. it's very difficult to rye to conduct these type of operations without registration. >> reporter: the residents say they're worried about losing their possessions here and are concerned about where they'll be taken and if they can come back here after the storm passes. the camp sits at the base of a mountain outside port-au-prince and is especially vulnerable to wind and flooding rains. as the hours pass, u.n. officials worried about the evacuations being delayed and assured the residents they could return here. finally, tempers cooled and the first few hundred residents lined up to be evacuated, saying
7:04 am
they feared mud slides and flash flooding participate they were loaded by peacekeeping forces on to united nations trucks headed to shelter. they're now among the relatively few tent camp residents across the country to be evacuated. with 1.3 million haitians now living under tarps and tents, most have nowhere to go, despite the urging of the haitian government to seek shelter with family and friends in safe housing, most of these earthquake victims now ride out the storm in rickety tents. now, health officials worry that the rain could also worsen the cholera epidemic by spreading the contaminated water, which has already killed more than 400 people here. meredith, back to you. >> mark potter, thank you very much. mr. roker, where's this storm headed, how bad is it going to be? >> the bad news is it doesn't look like it's going to get over land, so it's going to stay over the warm waters and probably continue to strengthen. it's 175 miles west of port-au-prince, haiti, 85 miles
7:05 am
per hour winds, moving north-northeast at 9 miles per hour. the hurricane-force winds, tropical storm-force winds extend well out into much of haiti, towards the eastern ends of haiti. you can see eastern cuba, western haiti bear the brunt of those winds and on into the turks and caicos and southeastern bahamas as well. that's going to be a big problem. rainfall amounts, we're talking the anywhere from 5 to 10 inches of rain over haiti, and of course, with the mountainous terrain, and much of it deforested, they've estimated up to 80% of the forest has been cut down for people to use for firewood, that's going to exacerbate the mud slide problems. the path of the storm continues on into the atlantic by early saturday morning and continues on as a category 1 storm. the big problem, not so much the winds, but really the rains. 10 to 15 inches of rain is going to cause massive mud slides and flooding. >> mr. roker, thank you very much. we appreciate it. let's turn to politics now, where the top republicans in
7:06 am
congress bolstered by tuesday's election results are promising big changes in washington. nbc's kelly o'donnell is on capitol hill. good morning to you. >> reporter: hi, matt. it's been a very rough go for democrats since tuesday night, but they do have some good news this morning. washington state, the senate race there that we've been waiting for a result, it goes to democrats. senator patty murray wins a fourth term and she beat dino rossi, who was selected by national republicans, to try to challenge her. it was one of those mail-in ballot states, so it took a little longer. and now president obama has at least one more democrat he can look to. she certainly defended all of his policies on the campaign trail. that stood out. but now mr. obama has less power and fewer votes in congress. >> people are still catching their breath from the election, the dust is still settling. >> reporter: but republicans do not appear winded. taking their aim at the top. >> i don't want the president to fail, i want him to change. >> reporter: the leading republican in the house, john boehner, also firing back in an interview with abc news. >> there seems to be some denial
7:07 am
on the part of the president, and other democrat leaders, the message that was sent by the american people. >> i think it's clear that the voters sent a message. which is, they want us to focus on the economy and jobs and moving this country forward. >> reporter: but boehner says it's more than that. >> when you have the most historic election in over 60, 70 years, you would think that the other party would understand that the american people have clearly repudiated the policy that they've put forward in the last two years. >> reporter: something to talk about when the president has congressional leaders over to the white house later this month. >> it's not just going to be a photo op. hopefully, it may spill over into dinner. >> some have said it was indelicate of me to suggest that our top political priority over the next two years should be to deny president obama a second term. >> reporter: speaking to a conservative audience, senate minority leader mitch mcconnell
7:08 am
did acknowledge that republicans still can't repeal health care reform, cut spending, and end bailouts on their own. but his solution, defeating president obama in 2012. >> the only way to do all of those things is put someone in the white house who won't veto all of these things. >> it may take some renegades going rogue to get us there. it may take folks shaking it up to get there. >> reporter: and 2012 speculation always takes off when sarah palin's political action committee launches a new video. this time with glossy images of the winning candidates she endorsed and a touch of ronald reagan. >> this is our moment, this is our morning in america. >> reporter: and it is sarah palin's home state, alaska, which is still the question mark for who wins in the senate. now, the democrat there has already conceded, but lisa murkowski, the incumbent who has been running as a write-in, she's still holding on as well as joe miller. they've got a long way to go
7:09 am
before they count all of those write-in ballots. and it will be a long time, a couple of weeks before the president sits down with members of congress. that's because he heads overseas today. matt? >> kelly o'donnell on capitol hill this morning, kelly, thanks, as always. karl rove served as senior adviser to president george w. bush and his book, "courage and conscious: my life as a conservative in the fight" is now out on paperback. good to have you back. >> good to be back. >> i know you worked closely with outside republicans in this election. 2004, george bush said you were the architect. were you an architect of this big win for republicans on tuesday? >> well, i don't -- look, others can apply the labels, i just had a lot of fun being involved in american crossroads and crossroads gps and our efforts to help elect more republicans. >> it was a thumping for democrats, no question about it, on tuesday, in the house, in the senate, in some governors' races across the country. i thought it was interesting what you wrote in an op-ed yesterday. let me read some of that.
7:10 am
republicans must not delude themselves. the voters didn't throw out the democrats because they're enraptured with the gop. the polling data suggests that many voters still remain nervous about it. republicans are on probation and whether they get off it depends on whether they do what they said they would do on the campaign trail. what do they need to do? >> they need to attack obamacare everywhere they can. they need to ratchet down the spending and attack the deficit, st extend the tax cuts and have a pro-growth agenda. it's not simply enough to say, we're going to stop doing the bad thing the american people clearly want to have stopped, but they need to lay out an agenda. >> can they attack obamacare without personally attacking obama, or do they go hand in hand? i think people vending a message, they're tired of the visit vitri vitriol. can they accomplish that? >> people talked about the facts and specifics of it, and it was
7:11 am
the president out there saying, we need to punish our enemies and reward our friends. of the negative ads done this year, the vast majority of the republican ads were either devoted exclusively to policy questions or policy and personnel -- personal questions, where has most of the democrat ads were aimed personally at the republicans. >> you talk about the president's indelicate use of the word "enemy," but both sides have been guilty of these things. mitch mcconnell just admitted, he should not have said, our priority number one is to make obama a one-term president. we understand what he meant. but do republicans have to send a different sign, that it's not about president obama, it's about changing course. >> it's about president obama's policies. absolutely, it's about president obama's policies. and look, there's no moral quiflty between what president obama did for months and months and months during this campaign, excoriating the republicans, and the republicans having a very focused attack on his policies. it was president obama who said, oh, we're welcome to have those republicans come along with us, but they ought to be riding in the back. anyone who says there's one
7:12 am
person in america who's keenly aware about a metaphor saying people should be riding in the back, that's this president of the united states. >> let me ask you a question i asked senator-elect rand paul wednesday morning. i said, the relationship between the republican party and the tea party, is it a marriage of convenience? will the honeymoon soon end? or are you guys so s soul mates? >> we'll see. there's the tea party movement, which are groups. there's an even larger tea party sentiment. the tea party sentiment has given rise to the tea party groups. if you take a look at that sentiment, it is broad. it's why 55% of independents voted for republicans, an 11-point shift from two years ago and a nearly 20-point shift from four years ago. it is why we have a lot of people who have not been republicans before who nonetheless came out and -- >> you mentioned those independents. we've learned a lot about them. they don't want to be fenced in. they'll move in either direction and they'll move rapidly. do you think they would move to the right for the foreseeable future, or for 2012, could they
7:13 am
move back to the center or left? >> they could move back, but it would require the republicans to fail at their task and for president to move to the middle. they were not prepared for all the spending, for the failed stimulus bill, for all the additions to the deficit. they were not prepared for obamacare. when the president ran the second most widely shown add, it said, quote, government extreme health care. >> you said christine o'donnell's loss in delaware was a lesson for republicans. what's telephonhe lesson? does she have a future? >> she had a lot of issues that came up in the local press, she handled them one way in the spring and handled them a different way in the fall. in the spring, she said, for example, that she lost her condominium in a foreclosure because of a technical error in the bank. in the fall, she did the right thing by shooting straight with people and said, i lost it because i didn't pay my mortgage. >> does she have a future? >> it's up to her and it's up to the voters of delaware. >> real quickly, at the end
7:14 am
here, your former boss, george. with bush, has been silent for two years since leaving the white house. he's now out with a new book. we're going to be hearing a lot about him and from him over the next couple of days and weeks. you've read his book. what do you think will surprise people most about what he's put in there? and this isn't a plug for us, by the way. >> he's shown a very personal side of his decisions and of how they affected him. and it's a very frank book. it's a very revealing book. people will be surprised how difficult and complicated and nuanced some of these situations were about which he had to make a decision. but they will be struck, i think, by the personal tone of it. >> karl rove, karl, always good to have you here. >> thanks for having me. it's 14 minutes after the hour. once again, here's meredith. >> matt, thank you. as kelly o'donnell mentioned, alaska's still undecided senate race is getting more interesting. incumbent lisa murkowski ran as a write-in and appeared on track to win, but now challenger joe miller is saying, it isn't over yet.
7:15 am
kristen welker has the latest. >> this race is not done until the ballots are counted. >> reporter: tea party candidate joe miller has a message for write-in candidate, lisa murkowski. >> her little victory speech that she gave several days ago may actually be premature. >> reporter: miller's hired a legal team to do battle in the alaska recount where he trails the the write-in ballots by 13,000 votes. >> frankly, i think we're going to pull ahead, at least not ahead in the 13,000 votes, but we're going to pull ahead of where we are now when those absentee ballots get counted. >> reporter: we spoke with the gop hopeful at a coffee shop in wasilla, alaska, the hometown of one of his biggest supporters, sarah palin. >> i'm excited because there are people that have been awakened, you know, obviously by sarah palin. but they've also been awakened just by common sense. >> do you think she would be a good presidential candidate? >> i think she would be. there's no doubt about it. look at who's in office right now. you do a comparison between the two, there is no comparison.
7:16 am
you got one person who wants to grow government, another person who wants to shrink it. to me, it's a no-brainer. >> reporter: and while palin has become a headliner for the tea party, miller is not sure if the movement has completely arrived just yet. >> we'll have to wait and see. really, i think that after these people take office, hopefully me included, depending on the outcome here, the end result will be then seen as to whether or not the gop decides to basically embrace the movement. >> reporter: but right now he's focused on his own future, as alaska waits to see which candidate actually did win this race. kristen welker, nbc news, wasilla, alaska. and now let's get a check of the rest of the morning's top stories. >> we've got ann curry waiting at the news desk. good morning to you. >> good morning, matt and meredith. good morning, everybody. in the wake of this week's election, attention is now turning today to the economy and specifically the nation's unemployment rate. cnbc's melissa francis has more on this, joining us from the new york stock exchange. >> good morning, ann. the unemployment number is front and center as the market tries

to continue this monster rally from yesterday, five stocks up for every one that fell. this is on the back of the fed's plan to inject $500 billion into treasuries. but what has moved stocks higher has crushed the dollar, down 14% since june. oil jumped another 2% and gold surging to 1382 an ounce. a new record. back to you. and president obama is speaking about the economy this morning at the white house. >> the fact is, an encouraging jobs report doesn't make a difference if you're still one of the millions of people who are looking for work. and i won't be satisfied until everybody who is looking far job can find one. >> this morning in northwest pakistan, the suicide bombing demolished a mosque during friday prayers, killing at least 50 people. a plane crash in central cuba late thursday killed all 68 people on board. the state airliner went down in a mountainous area after declaring an emergency. the head of qantas airline says the midair engine blowout on thursday was most likely caused by a material failure or

7:20 am
it's billed as the world's most expensive home ever, 27 floors of it, soaring above india's financial capital. >> it's a really cool house. it's got a feeder that seats 60 people. >> reporter: six floors of parking, nine elevators, a health club, grand ballroom, swimming pool, hanging gardens and all topped by three helipads. the richest man will move in with his wife and three children with an estimated 600 staff now making final preparations. >> it's sort of his castle. it's a way to hold court. it's a reminder i have this and you have not. >> reporter: the home named antilia after a mythical island is astonishing, even by standards of india's new rich which likes to show off its new wealth. all that money from one family

but she lost leaving many wondering what's next for her. from the republican primary on, many republicans seemed to turn against you, they said you couldn't be elected dogcatcher, they predicted you were going to cost them the senate seat. were you the spoiler that they said you were going to be? >> these were excuses, rather than saying we were wrong, rather than admitting that we should have united. what's interesting is that before the primary, karl rove came to delaware and met with the policy council and said no matter what the outcome, we have got to unite around the winner of the primary, but when it came to for him to do what he was encouraging others to do, he wouldn't do it. they just couldn't stomach it to
8:12 am
say i was wrong. >> you were at the top of the ticket and one delaware gop strategist put it this way, she didn't just crash her own plane, there's collateral damage because of what happened at the top. in other words they're blaming you for the entire loss. >> again that sounds like bruised egos because in the six weeks we had after the primary, when the party did not come out to lend their support, we had to rebuild the establishment. >> why didn't they come out for you? >> again, it's bruised egos. we put the political process back into the hands of the people. the voters of delaware chose me as opposed to the party anointed and for decades it's all about who's been groomed by the party. >> you raised twice as much money than your opponent and you had the backing of the tea party and the big guns, sarah palin and jim demint, why wasn't that
8:13 am
enough? >> in just the six weeks that we had. if we didn't have that network, that machine, mechanism to plug into like other candidates did, we had to spend the time rebuilding that, establishing the grass roots network to get out the vote and also defending the accusation that even my own party was putting out. so it was too heavy of a lift for one entity. to think about, you know, it was the white house t democrat senatorial committee, the democratic national committee and my opponent, you know, the whole democratic establishment came out and if we had -- >> why didn't sarah palin come out for you? she endorsed you but she never came to the state. >> she did what a lot of other republican leadership should have. she did what cornyn and even karl rove should have, in that when the accusations, the mischaracterizations started to fling, she helped to deflect some of that in the media. she said that wasn't right.
8:14 am
>> but she never came to the state to coampaign. >> it's a scheduling issue. >> she went all over this country for candidates. >> and she spoke a lot on my behalf in media, she defended those accusations when it should have been the big boys in the party. >> so you don't feel she was avoiding standing next to you? >> not at all. otherwise she wouldn't have come to my defense so often. but again, what could have happened, you know, this election should have been about the issues important to the delaware voters. instead, they tried to make it personal and the leadership could have helped. that's one of the loads that they could have lifted and governor palin certainly did. >> one of the things you said many years ago, obviously with bill maher on politically incorrect when you said you dabbled in witchcraft and evolution being a myth. you're blaming a lot of other people, but does any of it fall
8:15 am
on you? >> the democrats can't stand on their record because nobody can afford these tax hikes. but a lot of good did come out of my candidacy, for example, the democrats are pushing for these tax hikes saying that it's only on the top 2%. but we helped to raise awareness that it's the small business owners who fall under that top 2% category and many of them in delaware have told me that if their taxes are raised, they'll be forced to close their doors. >> that i am not a witch ad, how did it get through? >> you rely on the experts and this is where the advice of the leadership comes into play, we didn't have that. there are a lot of things that we could have done but i'm very proud of what we did do. >> and what's coming next for you? everybody's wondering, are you running again? you almost hinted at it. >> i don't know if i'll say that again, but in the short-term, there's a lot of destructive
8:16 am
policy coming up in the lame duck session. >> how are you going to stop that? >> we have created a platform and we have been able to get a lot of issues out there, and i would like to do that at least in the short-term. real people with real stories who are genuinely concerned about what's going to happen in january. >> so in two years when the other seat comes up, is it likely we'll see you out there? >> i honestly have no clue. i'm looking at the short-term, we have a lot of opportunities from book deals that i'm exploring, but like i said, for now, i would like to continue to be an advocate for those in delaware, the farmers who have never had a voice in washington, i would like to see what i can do to help bring their issues to the spotlight. >> thank you so much for joining us. we appreciate it. up next, they call him bubba bu -- baba booey.

the new standard of the world. ♪ if you could read my mind love ♪ ♪ what a tale my thoughts would tell ♪ >> what's on your mind today, following tuesday's election results, no matter where you stand on the political spectrum, we're a nation with a lot to say. here to share what's on his mind is actor, writer, commentator and talk show host charles grodin. it was 1980 when the reagan administration first came out, i was friends with a man named donald kendall, he was the ceo of pepsico, he was also the chairman of the united states chamber of commerce which is a lobbying group for business, a pro lobbying group. he wanted me to meet the new people with the reagan administration to help get the
8:41 am
word out for what the reagan administration stood for. this was 1980, 30 years ago. i had a meeting with newt gingrich, he was dazzling, i had no idea what he was talking about, but i could see that he did. so that was impressive. jack kemp walked by me and says we're aware of what you're doing, keep up the good work, i had no idea what he meant about keep up the good work. eventually i got to meet with about four different staff people that were going to be in the reagan administration. i said i understand you want to cut programs, you want to have smaller government, and that's fine, but just keep in mind the first time somebody, because there's not a safety net kills themselves, it's going to really backfire on you because you have to have a safety net for people who can't protect themselves. i said this to about four groups of people. i went to the elevator with don kendall and he said it's very important that you're saying that because no one is saying that about the safety net for
8:42 am
people. as we were leaving, somebody came over to me, he said i need to ask you this, i really need to know this, what's it like to work with miss piggy, it's a true story. i thought i was going to be ask to join the administration. >> the interesting thing about that is that you said that 30 years ago. >> we want less programs, but you know -- >> sarah palin said something not long ago, she said how is all that hopey changey stuff doing for you? do you think there's still a chance for hope and change? >> i think part of the problem with the reporting is that nobody knows what anybody's talking about. i was watching it last night with my wife. hope, change, i'll fight for you. these are catch phrases. but nobody really knows -- like could you explain the stimulus package? could you explain the health
8:43 am
care plan? in other words, they're like insiders talking at a bar over drinks and you have to speak more plainly. >> i was reading a little bit about your background last night and the easy question to ask you is, you've got extraordinarily strong political views, why not run for public office? >> because i have a -- my iq is in triple figures. i'm not qualified. i don't think anybody is qualified to be president of the united states. maybe three people in my lifetime. i don't want to insult anyone, i thought eisenhower was qualified. which means i'm not qualified. i always felt that whoever was president, there should be somebody in the basement that you would go to who is really, really smart and it was a man years ago named clark clifford and he served a few administrations, and i said itds good to have clark clifford in the basement. and one day i picked up the
8:44 am
paper and he was indicted. you have to go out and ask people for money, i don't like to do that. you would have to travel, you would have to sit in a lot of boring meetings, you would have to want to run for office. >> we ran a segment on our show that's called is civility dead? i. >> i don't want to say what was missing from the dialogue in this election was the discussion of the two wars. people just went talking about it, but people should understand that the war in iraq and afghanistan drained the economy and that's one of the major reasons why we're in this trouble, we have spent a fortune on these two wars. all across america you have brain cancer patients who can't get treatment. i'm part of an organization children's cancer and blood foundation, they cut the children's cancer because of the wars. the shock and awe, we made so many enemies with that.
8:45 am
like with dresden in world war ii, we made so many enemies with that. senator web of virginia said we represent 5% of the world's population, 25% of the world's prison population. he said there's either something wrong with -- we're either the most evil people in the world or there's something wrong with our justice system. i'm telling you there's something wrong with our justice system. >> charles grodin wheith what'sn his mind today. we're going to have much more but first this is "today" on nbc. our real national pastime -- saving money.
8:46 am
and like baseball people love their stats. i started bringing my lunch to work. 50 bucks a week in my pocket. here's a good one -- state farm insures 40 million drivers. more than geico and progressive combined. i save because i'm accident-free. of course, with so many ways to save, including discounts of up to 40%, having that many customers shouldn't be a surprise. so ask a neighbor about state farm. then call an agent at 1-800-state-farm, or go online. breakfast? in this house? in the morning i can use all the help i can get. that's why i love nutella, a delicious hazelnut spread

9:03 am
the confrontation became so heated, some of the aid workers had to leave the camp. >> there have been some security incidents so our registration team had to pull out. >> they're worried about losing their possessions here, and are uncertain about where they'll be taken and whether they can come back here after the storm passes. >> the camp sits at the base of a mountain outside port-au-prince and is especially vulnerable to wind and flooding rains. as the hours passed, u.s. officials worried about the evacuations being delayed and assured the residents they could return here. finally temperatures cooled and the first few hundred residents lined up to be evacuated saying they feared mudslides and flash flooding. they were loaded on to peacekeeping trucks to be taken to shelter. with 1.3 million haitians now

9:08 am
we have got a lot to get to so let's go through them one by one. something that can help you detect alzheimer's disease? >> currently the treatments for alzheimer's disease don't work very well because once you have symptoms of memory loss it's really too late. this can detect alzheimer's about ten years before any memory loss. >> it's a scanning device? >> it's a pet scan for the brain, but it's a new compound that's going to latch on to those plaques for alzheimer's. >> for people who have this in their family? >> it may get to the point where everyone's screened for it. >> melanoma. >> it's one of the cancers that's actually rising in incidence ant it's more deadly. any new treatment for melanoma is very welcome. it helps your own body's immune system fight the cancer.
9:09 am
it's very exciting for late stage melanoma. >> for prostate cancer sufferers, there's a therapeutic cancer vaccine that can help you if you're a survive? >> this is to fight off prostate cancer. it's the second leading cause of death in men for cancer deaths. so this is very important. again, once prostate cancer spreads it's very tough to treat and this is a vaccine where it takes the patient's own cells, puts them back in a boosted way. >> so that's exiting. there's a study that helps with heart disease? >> yes. >> so there's a study that shows that stattens, the cholesterol lowering drugs can actually help people in terms of prevention of heart attacks even if they have normal cholesterol. if they have an increased marker of inflammation that's called high sensitivity crp, they should talk to their doctor about getting one one of these cholesterol lowering medicines.
9:10 am
>> hepatitis c virus. >> right now this is a silent killer because often it doesn't produce any symptoms until it leads to really liver failure. the treatments right now are okay, but they definitely do not work for everyone. it's about a 50% effectiveness rate. there's a new drug that will be added to the conventional therapy and really boost the response to it. >> there's also some new devices when it comes to heart failure. >> heart failure can be really debilitating and often requires many hospitalizations. now there's a device that directly measures pressures in one of the major arteries that lead into the heart. it will allow the doctors to receive that information and taylor their therapy so they don't have to be readmitted every two weeks to the hospital. >> there's now a break through for a weight loss procedure? >> this is really exciting because as we know obesity is a huge problem in this country.

there are bare yack trick surgeries available. through the mouth instruments are placed, they actually create a very small touch in your stomach. so you're going to lose weight. it will eventually become a outpatient procedure. >> there's now a new way to diagnose asthma? >> right, so asthma involves as we know breathing difficulties, resistance in the airways but also inflammation, but until now we didn't have a good way of detecting that information. it will allow your doctor to really tell if you're going to have an asthma attack in the next few days and really taylor your therapy before it happens. >> there's also now an oral treatment for people with multiple sclerosis? >> multiple sclerosis is a very debilitating disease and right now it requires injectable medicines or an iv medication.
9:12 am
this has shown in studies to have very good results. >> and lastly, it's amazing we're getting through all of them. there's a now a capsule forring thes gastrointestinal disorders? >> with children, we never want to be sticking tubes in them, either way because it's very traumatic for them and their families. now there's a pill that's about this big, it takes pictures of their small intestine. it allows doctors to get pictures of the intestine without any pain or discomfort. >> this is great information, exciting to hear about them and thank you so much. and coming up next, stress and your skin. we're going to show you how to relax for younger looking you. and after that, if you don't shop at consignment stores, you may be missing out on some great deals, we're going to show you

9:17 am
dryness, it's going to get worse. you can get hives, eczema, everything will worsen. >> premature wrinkling, i imagine. >> stress will actually aggravate anything that you dislike, so wrinkles are always out there. >> and skin irritations that can come from external and also internal factors as well, right? >> people will forget that the external factors like smoking, pollution, the environment or just a chain in environment, going away on vacation and being in a place that's very humid or has a high intense sunlight will affect your skin, as will the stress of every day life. >> what happens to your skin when you are stressed out. >> stress causes the brain to release signals that increase the levels of cortisol and adrenaline, and these two hormones can wreak havoc on your body for many different reasons. the adrenaline will increase
9:18 am
that fight or flight response. and then the cortisol will increase the levels of oil in your skin and can cause your pores to get clogged up. what are some of the common irritations? >> i think the most common thing that people come in complaining about is acne and then hives. those are the two things that happen most commonly with stress. when the acne occurs it's that high level of cortisol that increases the seb bay shous plans increase of oil. the other thing is that people tend to stop doing all the things they normally do so they're not using the appropriate creams, their lotions, their prescribes medications when they're under stress. >> so treatments, what are some solution ises then that people, especially when it it comes to

things like acne. >> acne, you want to go back to the routine that you were doing, you want to add in a prescription brand salylic acid, you really want to start taking care of your skin so that the acne will disappear. >> hives is that something you can treat? >> hives can be treated as well. often we will prescribe anti-histamines for people. but you have to take a deep breath and try to eliminate some of the stress because the hives will often persist if the stress persists. >> hair and nails too can be affected by stress, right? >> hair is actually one of those things that is very alarming to people. the hair loss will occur somewhere between six and 12 weeks after the initial stressor. and the stressor can be anything from a recent surgery, a death in the family, anything that
9:20 am
causes an acute stress. the hair starts to fall out six to 12 weeks later because the hair goes into the resting phase and it's when those resting phase hair follicles start to fall out. people don't know what's causing it. they get really nervous. if that starts to happen, you need to see a doctor because the hair loss can be quite significant and the shedding can be quite significant. you want to make sure that you don't have a thyroid abnormality. >> it's always great to have you, good information. and coming up next, katherine jackson tells oprah winfrey what happened when she confronted michael about his drug addiction.
