protecting yourself. >> who is to blame for the death of james foley? i believe it is foreign policy. >> the man that put the knife in his neck, shorty. the thing you have to ask is why was this particular man chosen. it seems like he was chosen because he was an american citizen. >> reporter: it is so disturbing, so sickening to hear a group exercise first amendment rights by talking like that, but i did say to them, you do not represent even a fraction of muslims around the world. >> chuck todd, nbc's political director, chief white house correspondent and now meet the press moderator. they identified the militant responsible for james foley's death. in the past several days, we have seen the administration indicate it is open to u.s. air strikes. does it appear the president is leaning toward expanding u.s. air strikes?
7:14 am
>> they made decision to expand air strikes, the question is where, what kind of targeting and what legal authority. the tricky business for the administration is he had authority to deal with air strikes in iraq. you have long authority that they were given in 2001 and 2002 for both going after al qaeda and iraq. when you cross the border into syria, there are larger legal questions. do they have to go to congress, what exactly, do they need permission of the syrian government. they have the permission of the iraqi government to come in. do they need permission of the syrian government. that part of it is tricky. they're trying to decide, the targets in syria, how important are they and should it trigger debate in congress. >> to add to the trickiness, the optics, we know that. the president criticized, some say he is disengaged on vacation. james cameron ended his vacation earlier, british prime minister. does this matter or is it just

7:16 am
american public and also try to translate the american public frustration for out of touch washington people. so i think that part of the challenge, i think that's part of when things are going well in the political journalism world it is because we're playing that role of being the translater, interpreter between america and washington. hopefully i can do my best to get that going. >> certainly you will. congratulations. thank you very much. let's head to willie for the other top stories, including a volcano that's a major cause for concern. good morning. >> we will have more on the volcano in a minute. schools near the gold rush town of weaverville closed because of a fast moving wildfire threatening more than 600 homes. hundreds of residents evacuated. fire officials say the steep terrain, gusty winds, and dry conditions are making it tough to fight. officials are keeping a close eye on a volcano in

88 in washington, d.c. boston, you're going see a high of 85. more wet weather making its way into the southwest and in southern california we've got a hurricane off the pacific coast. rip currents will be a big problem. and high surf advisories, in 8:32. good monday morning to you. i'm meteorologist christina loren. happy to report some good news. it's going to be a really nice day. strong onshore flow extending into the tri-valley. it's mostly clear at this point down in the south bay. we will be one of the warm spots as a result. clearing already taking place here. gradually clearing at the immediate coast and around the inner bay with a nice, warm finish. 66 degrees in san francisco. 77 degrees on the peninsula and 80 in san jose. >> and that's your latest weather. matt? >> announcer: the emmys on "today" is brought to you by the
8:33 am
agile all new audi q-3. stray the course. >> thanks very much. now a look at tonight's 66th primetime emmy awards. who's going to walk away with those sought-after trophies? he there's going to be the poignant moment when billy crystal gets on stage and pays tribute to robin williams. >> that's the one sure thing we know. billy crystal and robin williams had a close relationship. they worked together in comic relief specials. they acted together in a movie. there's going to be the first words billy crystal will give about the situation. >> what strikes me about the categories, we're going to talk shows here but further on star power. huge. let's start out with category for best drama series. breaking bad, downton abbey, game of thrones, house of cards,
8:34 am
mad men. who goes away with it? >> the last time to award the mad men show. or will they go with true detective as a form of gainsmanship almost. and this is the only chance to reward this cast for their work. a lot wonder whether those two will be the combatants. >> listen to these names. claire danes, robin wright, liz lizzy caplan, kerry washington, and margulies. >> many believe because the good wife wasn't nominated, julian margulies might be able to walk away with it this time. but robin wright was phenomenal. entertainment weekly we're always looking out for great female roles. it's clear she had such a complex layered role.
8:35 am
so i think she'd be the leader for me. >> all right. outstanding lead actor in a drama series, bryan cranston, kevin spacey, jon hamm, jeff daniel daniels, woody harrelson, matthew mcconaughey. >> i think it's going towards breaking bad but matthew maccon hay is probably in the lead in that cast. when you like at bryan cranston, he's been rewarded before. this would be the last time to reward his portrayal of walter white. a lot of people loved that last arc in the season. he's the one to beat, but a lot believe matthew mcconaughey deserves a win. >> if he gets the win, he can put the trophy in his fanny pack. let's lighten it up. best comedy series, louie, modern family, orange is the new black, silicon valley, big bang theory, and veep.
8:36 am
>> if modern family walked away with it this year, it would tie frazier with five in the comedy series pitch would be a record. but veep has been surging with the popularity. julia louis-dreyfus was on a cover of ours recently. that's another one i think you have to watch come tonight. >> best actress in a comedy series. lena dunham, melissa mccarthy, eddie falco, amy poehler, or julia louis-dreyfus for veep. >> julia louis-dreyfus is the front runner. her portrayal of the politician in veep has everyone cracking up. i mentioned it's a fan favorite in our entertainment weekly. orange is the new black released its new seen on streaming precisely when the emmy deciders were working. >> matt leblanc, don cheadle,
8:37 am
william macy, jim parsons. >> jim parsons has been cleaning up in this category. he's on the largest show on tv right now in the big bang theory. but i think this is a battle of mass versus critically acclaimed. louis c.k., he covered deep scenes in addition to comedy. >> best reality competition program. we've got a local favorite here in "the voice." what do you think is going to happen in that category? >> the amazing race has won 10 out of 12 opportunities here. but "the voice" was the first and only singing competition to unseat it. i think they have a good chance. >> i like when you give us the inside track of what's happening. thank you. and you can catch the 66th primetime emmy awards live at 8:00 eastern/5:00 pacific here on nbc. and al and carson will be live from los angeles tomorrow on "today" with all the winners, the fashions, the afterparties, and a lot more. up next, could you do it? we'll check in on our 30-day
8:38 am
detox challenge and see if jill martin can handle vacation without e-mail or the internet. but first this is "today" on nbc.
8:39 am
8:40 am
we're back now. 8:40 with our 30-day detox challenge to give up a bad habit or vice. "today" contributor jill martin has led the charge with going without e-mail, text, or the internet. >> so how is she doing? and our viewers detoxing along with us. take a look. >> so i'm on vacation. every year i take my vacation at the end of august. and this year i'm on a cruise. i'm going on a european tour. i'm with my best friend who will be shooting all this. say hi. >> hi! >> obviously i have no iphone and no wi-fi. i have a situation. they handed us the menu and it's
8:41 am
on an ipad. i feel guilty ordering from it. i don't normally send postcard so i'm doing it now. i would match rurt have a friend send me this than an e-mail. i'm here in berlin. i'm with my best friend sherri. and sherri has something about how this is going. >> i travel with jill extensively. we've known each other wince serp 5. this is the first time i've seen her so relaxed, so present, so focused. she's not working 24/7. it's been delightful. >> it's monday, august 18th. my husband's out of town on business. i'm on the honor system this week. all i want is to drink a coke and i easily could. no one would know. can mommy have pop, kenkennedy? >> yeah. >> yeah? but i can't lie. i'm anxious for this to be over.
8:42 am
i looked down at my garbage can and you can see what used to be filled with coke bottles is now filled with gatorade bottles. >> i wanted to let you know since the last update i kicked things into high gear and i can proudly say that i've gone almost full whole weeks without saying one negative thing about the way that i look. my family went on a long weekend trip and i forgot my makeup. i didn't stress over it. went to the beach. wore my bathing suit without woes. i've had a lot of support from the local community. newspaper covered the story. i hope this will last beyond the detox and my daughter and my son for that matter will both see only the confident mother and grow up with that same confidence. >> morning, everyone. just giving you my three-week check in. so far so good. once again, i have withstood some really strong temptations but with the trip coming to new york, i can't even deal. my anxiety levels are off the
8:43 am
chart. my girlfriends are talking about going shopping, buying new shoes and that's just what i need to add to my 398 pairs in my closet. but so far so strong. i have my will power. i'm going to pull through this. >> by default it's no longer in your awarness. and we find 30 days is the average amount of time when you have replaced this behavior perhaps with something different or more positive, after 30 days we will see that people often stick to this new habit. >> a lot of stars on that calendar. let's check in with how we're doing. your bout was to give up sweets for 30 days. how are you doing? >> i'm out of the challenge. i cashed out. i should have narrowed it down to ice cream or cookies. we do cooking segments. we did s'mores the first day of the detox. >> that's cruel. >> i was at 200 bucks.
8:44 am
>> so you're not even attempting anymore. >> i can't lie to myself. dylan? >> i'm not in it, but i just came back from vacation and went to a creamery. and i had the best ice cream cone ever. just to rub that in. >> in a related story. >> thanks for share ppg. >> you? you gave up what? >> bread. bread, pizza, pasta. i've given up those things but there are all these cookies and crackers. i'm still getting in on those. >> you haven't had one cheat? >> i think crackers are bread based. >> i gave ice cream. i was set back one day early. then saturday i opened the freezer to get ice and a pint of haagen-dazs ice cream hit me in the head. so i had another fallback. i'll be back on track though.
8:45 am
>> love that. so we'll see. maybe i'll launch back in. >> no. you're done. you're out. >> all right. up next, someone who's not done with us. guess who's paying a visit to studio 1a? oscar winner adrien brody is here. his new series -- >> how are you? >> adrien will join us. but first this is "today" on nbc.
8:46 am
8:47 am
back now at 8:47 with a look at the life of one of the greatest magicians of all time. adrien brody stars at harry houdini on history. take a look. >> put an ad in the paper and tell people you're going to do something crazy and a thousand people will show up. throw in a chance of me getting
8:48 am
killed, and you have to beat them back with a stick. it was the wrong moment to start thinking. if i started to think, i might forget who i was. the great houdini. >> and adrien brody is with us. good to see you. so i was watching and multitasking. the minute that clip starts and i stopped doing everything and spent the rest of my afternoon with you watching this. it's tremendous. congratulations. >> thank you. it's exciting. >> it is exciting. what drew you to this project? you're such an intriguing person on so many levels. i wondered what was it about harry houdini that caught you? >> i had a real fascination with magic at a very young age. and he is one of the people that
8:49 am
inspired me on a pretty profound level for a young person. i didn't understand the complexity of his life at that time. but what he symbolizes still resonated with me as a boy. >> when you say what he symbolized, what is that? >> you know, he is -- first of all, in doing the research i understand him better. he's the epitome of the american dream. he is someone who's not only escaped the confines of the physical shackles, but the shackles that keep down the impoverished people. >> he's an underdog. >> he was an eastern european immigrant. he overcame all these things and he escaped that. he represented that to people that is possible. and that's a very heroic thing beyond the other aspects of the amazing stunts he performed.
8:50 am
what he represented i think resonated especially at that time, at the turn of the century there was -- we still have a lot of poverty, but there was a w k working class that identified with him. >> and looking for the one way to escape that poverty. we can use the word escape in this way. and he did just that. and what i thought was amazing as well about this miniseries is it dug into his life and what motivated him and the challenges. not to give too much away, there was a scene where he looks down in the audience and no one is there and he's got to step his game up. what was that like pushing the limits? >> he's very driven. he's probably more driven than anybody i've met or knew without the exception of roman polanski. but he was such a driven human being. and he was an inventor.
8:51 am
he created all of these things. he understood marketing more than anybody. at that time in history this man was making an announcement and what they reference in that clip was he's making an announcement and everyone would show up to check him out. then he developed all these new fans and awareness. say i'm going to jump off a bridge and there he was. >> seei inin ining twitter an a stuff today -- >> oh, yeah. he would be a sensation. he still is. it's him and charlie chaplin and that's about it. >> you pointed out you were a magician as a kid and someone told me you were willing to try a trick for me. are you ready? >> my goodness. you know what? someone handed me a pencil so that i could do one of my childhood magic tricks. >> let's see it. >> we live in a new world today.
8:52 am
nobody has a pencil. >> here we go. drum roll. >> you ready to be my trusty assistant? >> will i lose a limb? >> not if you're careful dean what i tell you. you have to told this very tightly. angle it so people can see it. i will -- >> matt lauer is trying to copy. so make sure this is legit. >> this is an ordinary dollar bill and ordinary pencil. i will now attempt to break this pencil with a dollar bill. >> have you done this? >> i haven't done this since i was 11. don't move. i'm not as accurate. >> here we go. >> okay. okay. you have to focus. >> focus. come on. >> really. it has to be -- ready? focus, focus, focus. >> we're all getting sucked in.
8:53 am
>> we're getting sucked in. tries o try one more time. oh. this is "today" on nbc. go, adrien.

9:02 am
motions like the video. and even jay z is surprised. he has that proud parent thing and he watched the camera to catch her again. he had that parent moment. it was so cute. >> he feels her bouncing on his knee and goes with it. >> hey, guys. there was a big thing also. nicki minaj did that song "anaconda," they had to change it up. because during the dress rehearsal the night before, one of her dancers was actually bitten by a snake. >> is that true? i saw that and i wasn't sure if that was a rumor. >> it's true. so they got rid of the snakes. cut them out. >> well, they kept everything else. >> yes, they did. yes, they did. >> lucy came down for the beginning of the show and we got through arianna grande. then the opening bar of "anaconda," all right, upstairs sweetie. >> run, run. yeah, it's a very sexy show
9:03 am
throughout. i mean, there were -- >> it was a very cheeky show. >> that's the word i was looking for. >> come on. >> it was very cheeky. >> no buts about it. >> but they performed your song "bang bang." that was one of the highlights for me from home. i was like, yes, they're doing al's song. >> the dress came undone. do you think that was intentional? >> i don't think she could get changed in time. it was a pretty quick change. >> so you think she didn't have time to zip the front of her dress? >> i don't know. she was clutching that thing for dear life. >> yeah. they said she had a wardrobe malfunction. occasionally a zipper will break. i've had it happen many times. but not on stage with millions of people watching. but zippers do break and it looks like -- but here's the one thing someone pointed out. everyone else has a stick mic. she has one of those janet jackson ear mics. so some people thought it may have been planned. i don't think it was planned. i think that's one of those moments the zipper gives. >> that was the mic she had from the "anaconda." and i have a feeling they were
9:04 am
trying to change -- she was trying to change very rapidly and it just didn't work. earlier on the red carpet i ran into jessi j. she's obviously a big fan of our show -- >> she's a fan of yours. >> no, i think of our show because she had seen us talking about "bang bang." take a listen. >> hello. >> you are the man. >> i'm the man. >> i saw your video like a thousand times. >> so you saw me dancing to "bang bang." ♪ bang bang into the room >> gosh, she can sing. >> even that right there. just that one note. >> and by the way, i was the oldest person on the red carpet. >> that's not true. >> oh, my gosh. every other interviewer was like 26 years old. >> no. was madonna there? that was a joke. >> i don't know. my man snoop was there. >> oh, boy. >> he asked you to the, quote, green room. did you go to the green room with him? >> i did not go to the green

9:06 am
debra? do you coordinate with your wives? >> no. i'm not allowed. >> i could think of nothing worse. >> al said he's tried. >> when we've gone out to certain events, i'll maybe wear a tie that's an accent to a color in her gown but that's about it. i have threatened to get matching hawaiian shirts for everybody in the family. they literally threw my phone out the window. i was actually ordering them from l.l. bean and they grabbed the phone and the kids were like stomping on it. but i thought it would be so much fun. like "the goldbergs." >> he trolls his own children to try to get them mad. >> just to see their reaction. it was a fun show. i can't wait for the emmys tonight to see all the red carpet fashion and fun you'll have there too. >> and carson is going to be joining me tomorrow morning from here. it's going to be a long night. this is my marathon. i'll do the red carpet.
9:07 am
i've got the one-on-one interviews with the winners and then i go out to the parties. >> stay hydrated. lots of water. avoid sugar. sugar makes you crash. >> no, no sugar. lot of water. >> lots of water. >> all right, al. we'll check in with you for your forecast in a couple minutes. some other stories making news today. this is a crazy one. yesterday an american airlines flight from dallas to san diego was diverted to phoenix after a bomb threat that may have targeted the sony executive on the plane. a group of hackers going by the lizard squad tweeted at american airlines saying we've been receiving reports that j smedley's plane has explosives on board. please look into this. that's the tweet. that is john smedley. he's the president of sony online entertainment. he was one of the 179 passengers on board. he tweeted yes my plane was diverted. not going to discuss more than that. justice will find these guys.
9:08 am
thankfully the plane landed without incident. the fbi says the investigation is still ongoing. by the way lizard squad claimed responsibility for hacking the sony playstation network over the weekend. you can see the theme here. going after sony. >> why are they upset? did something happen? >> they haven't said explicitly why. but when you put these pieces together, obviously they're going after sony. >> crazy. another story over the weekend that's continuing to develop, the worst quake in california in 25 years hit early yesterday morning. the epicenter six miles out of napa. in fact, it was the 6.0 magnitude and lasted 10 to 20 seconds. was felt across a 200-mile span. dozens of homes were damaged by the violent shaking you see captured in videos released. a lot of gas and water mains were ruptured. 200 people treated at hospitals. most for cuts and bruises. when i woke up yesterday morning i saw there was a quake and it was down played for a little bit
9:09 am
of the early reporting. and then i went back in and you start to see the images once daylight arrived. and this video is terrible. ten seconds before the quake, an experimental early warning system at uc berkeley did issue an alert. it was the first time it was used. dylan, we were talking about it with her earlier today. but this is ground breaking in addition to -- this technology is revolutionary in the way that it can inform people and alert people. >> and it looked like it worked in this case. in this isolated case. now they're hoping it's something they can use. even if you can get ten seconds. get somewhere safe. get your kids somewhere safe. that's a big deal. the damage was bad in napa, but luckily the injuries were not terribly severe. >> our thoughts are with those families where homes and businesses were destroyed. >> germ story. germ story of the day. >> where's matt lauer? >> oh, boy. here we go.
9:10 am
cheerios in the car seat. that's always ugly. >> i love getting in parents' cars. i'm like, oh, look. cheerio. i don't mind if i do. >> ours are goldfish. sometimes they're soggy somehow. there's this study out there because there's always a study about germs you'll find. it found children's car seats have twice as many germs than the average toilet. so get rid of the car seats. burn them and get rid of your children as well. >> that's terrible. >> scientists took swabs from car seats discovered an average of bacteria and fungi in a small sample. a toilet found half that number. car seats are dirty. news flash. >> i'm always fascinated with the fact that car seats are cloth. why don't they make them -- >> you want to make leather seats? >> no. highchairs, the ones i remember, maybe they've changed. i'm not often around babies. remember they had vinyl. why don't they make the car seats kind of like a vinyl,
9:11 am
easier to wash. because when they're cloth you then have you take it off and then wash it. if it's cloth you can just wipe it down. >> maybe it's a comfort thing. kids spend a lot of time in those. i don't know. >> here's your choice. germs on your tushie or a clean seat. >> here's the deal, they have germs on their tushie already. you're not going to change that with a material. >> i thought i had a million-dollar idea. >> al, what's going on with the weather? >> i'm concerned for lucy and george because they just heard daddy say burn the car seats and get rid of the kids. >> well, they're not in car seats anymore so they're okay. >> but the get rid of the kids part. >> this guy means business. when we interrupt his vma awards, he holds a grudge. that's what happens. >> i'm just saying. anyway, let's take a look and show you. we've got a lot of heat to talk about. this is dangerous heat affecting millions from the south all the way into the northeast by the time this thing is over. so for today we have heat advisories, excessive heat

9:18 am
gain. that's what we've all heard. >> right. and a lot of people say don't eat after 8:00, don't eat after 7:00. people think their digestion slows down. the truth is there's no signs to back that up. whether you gain weight or not is based on how many calories you take in and how many you burn. one caveat to this is we tend to snack on unhealthy foods late at night. i've never craved carrots at 11:00 p.m. if you do that, cut yourself off. but in terms of metabolism, doesn't matter what time of day. >> there goes the tub of ice cream before bed. the next one, 30 minutes of moderate exercise five days a week. that's been drilled in our heads. >> now research suggests a high intensity workout for maybe just a few minutes can give the same
9:19 am
cardiovascular benefit. that is good news for those of us that have a hard time getting the 30 minutes. very high intensity. a high sprint on the treadmill, jumping jacks. but do it for a minute or two minutes, take a rest. and maybe continue for ten minutes three times a week. we're not talking about weight loss. if you're doing the exercise to lose weight, then yes the longer you do it the better. but just for your heart's protective effect, short intensity workouts are great. >> seven to eight hours of sleep at night. not true? >> well, i'm a big believer in sleep. i've said this all the time. try to get the seven to eight hours. if you skip a few nights of that, you can make it up. you can make it up if it's just a couple nights a week. but the way you do it is important. i'm not saying sleep in the next day. go to bed earlier. >> are you okay with a nap in the middle of the day?
9:20 am
>> only 30 minutes. any more than that it affects your sleep at night. >> i thought it was 45. i've been sleeping too much. >> wake up. >> let's get another one in here. limit your egg intake if you have high cholesterol. >> eggs have been vilified for decades because of the cholesterol. we're now learning there are different types of the bad cholesterol. it seems eggs may actually raise not just the ldl that's bad for you but the type that may not be harmful. they also are a great source of protein. they have things great for your neurological development. overall, egg not so bad. i will say for diabetes they may be dangerous. general healthy population an egg a day not a big problem. >> good stuff. good information. thank you so much. coming up, we've got all the news you need before you walk out the door. >> and later on, which of your favorite shows will be tonight's [ jeremy ] i get to spend all day, every day, visiting with dentists,
