7:32 am
this is all coming out publicly after an investigation by the colorado-based newspaper the gazette. according to the report west point investigated in march but punishment never included the players or coaches suspended and this morning the pentagon is weighing in. according to a report in the gazette members of west point's army black knights football team treated recruits to an alcohol fueled party, a dinner date with female cadets, cash from boosters and v.i.p. treatment on a party bus complete with cheerleaders and a police escort. school officials while acknowledging some misconduct dispute the report. arguing that individual cadet hosts are to blame for violating ncaa rules and not the team at large. a statement from the superintendent robert cathlin jr. indicate that 20 cadets were disciplined after an internal investigation quote found several violations of the cadet disciplinary code and ncaa rules.
7:33 am
the specifically those were underage drinking, inappropriate use of a police escort, misuse of ncaa recruiting funds, cadet participation without class privileges, and failure to maintain proper cadet accountability. the cadets did not face expulsion or court-martial. cathlin fired back at the report adding no booster moneys were involved. at no time did west point arrange a dinner date with female cadets and there was no cover-up. >> it's really quite shocking. you don't expect to the happen because you know how disciplined everybody is. and the way to deal with is it the way the superintendent has dealt with it. very, very quickly and decisively. >> though the gazette writes that west point self reported to the ncaa the report is putting the spotlight back on recruiting practices at military academies across the nation. in august, the air force academy launched an internal
7:34 am
investigation into its athletic department. after the gazette reported allegations of drug abuse, drinking, sexual assault and academic cheating by a group of football players. >> we have very high expectations for military institutions so we're surprised when this happens at service academy. but i think we need to hold civilian colleges and universities to exactly the same standard. >> reporter: now as for that pentagon statement, it reads in part the defense department holds our men and women to high standarded and we expect leaders to hold offenders accountable. >> kristin, thanks so much. >> let us get a check of the weather from this gentleman here. >> well, it seems like the end of october but guess what, it's going to be feeling a lot more like summertime, a good portion of the southeast and on into the midwest. big dome of high pressure dominating, jet stream is up to the north. look at these highs. chicago, you're going to be 75. that's 15 degrees above average.
7:35 am
15 above average in kansas city, atlanta is going to get up to mid-80s, then as we get to the east coast, roanoke, 82, norfolk 81, d.c. 15 degrees above normal as well. it's going to be toasty in the east by tomorrow. big changes coming with the front wet weather stretching from the great lakes back into oklahoma, and more rain moves into the pacific northwest, again with r in the south bay, 67 in san francisco, a lot of sunshine coming your way. s a you head to the mid section of your week, temperatures jump to 81 degrees and then we have rain coming in as we head throughout friday. more coming at 11:00.
7:36 am
>> and that's your latest weather. >> all right, al. thanks so much. have you avoided a colon cancer screening because they can be invasive and uncomfortable? starting today you could potentially get a new breakthrough test that you can take in your own home. clinical professor of medicine is here with more g. morning. this is one of those things a lot of people dread, obviously you have to drink that liquid beforehand, the test is invasive, sometimes you good under. is this a viable alternative? >> let's do facts first. colon cancer second leading cause of cancer deaths, fourth leading cause of cancer deaths worldwide. the screening test we have available is called a fecal occult blood test, you test for blood or do a colonoscopy. what this new test is doing you can actually send in a stool sample, you send it to a company, they are going to test
7:37 am
your stool for genetic mutations. it's it new risk meaning your risk is so and so, it's checking for mutations and it's finding that you can pick up up to 92% of cancers this way as roughly 42% of precancerous legses. >> if you were to grade it, i'm thinking about doing this insteds of all of that stuff for the colon 0 scopy is that a good idea? >> i can't give it a grade until i find out how it performs as a screening test. the value of a screening test is whether it reduces death from colon cancer. this is too preliminary. it's only available right now at the mayo clinic via prescription. >> it is fda approved. >> it is but i want to highlight that this is only recommended for men and women over 50 who have what we call an average risk of colon cancer. this is not for people who have a family history of colon cancer or who may have themselves some clinical conditions that increase their risk for colon cancer. in that scenario a colonoscopy is still the recommended
7:38 am
screening tool. >> for those who don't get colonoscopies is this better than nothing? >> yes. i'm going to go on record and say for people who are truly terrified of doing the colonoscopy and who will not do it, it's better than nothing but remember, a positive test on the screening test you will still need to get a colon 0 scope tee confirm that. >> thank you so much. coming up next, how is life treating ted williams? he will fill us in and on trending, the guys from ok go to premier their amazing video. it's bigger and bolder than the ones that made them stars on utube. we'll see it all. first these messages. chase. but there's a new card in town. introducing the citi® double cash card. it lets you earn cash back when you buy and again as you pay. that's cash back twice. it's cash back with a side of cash back. the citi double cash card. the only card that lets you earn cash back twice on every purchase

8:21 am
we're back now with a look at the relationship between john f. kennedy jr. and his mother, jackie. "the good son," raising a son under the constant scrutiny of the public. he would have turned 54 next month. you look at this relationship. was her relationship with john different than her relationship with caroline? >> very much so. john was his mother's son. i think she felt that she at any time want him inhaled by the rest of the kennedy clan. she didn't want him to grow up with a sense of entitlement that the rest of the kennedys had. we're also looking at the 1960s, but he was his father's namesake and if there was a political future, it was embodied in john, not caroline. >> shielding him from two things, one was those of us in the press and the other was, as you just mentioned, the kennedys
8:22 am
themselves. what was her fear other than entitlement? >> they were getting in trouble all the time. making unfortunate headlines around the world constantly. she didn't want her husband's name tarnished in that way. it wasn't that she squashed him, that she tried to, in any way, keep them from enjoying his life. she wanted him to encourage his adventurous spirit, sent him around the world on amazing adventures. >> she wanted him to push the envelope. >> right. >> however, she had one fear with him. she never wanted him to learn to fly. >> right. >> why? >> look at the track record of the kennedys. john's record, joe, perished in a plane crash, aunt kathleen, stepbrother, alexander onassis, teddy kennedy, eth el kennedy's parents were killed in one plane crash, her brother in another plane crash. she didn't like the track record. >> it wasn't until after she pass add way that he went out and got his pilots license.
8:23 am
>> she had this premonition that she shared with the last important man in her life that he would die in a plane crash and he promised her he would not get his pilot's license during her lifetime. >> she knew from an early age or felt from an early age with john that he would carry on the kennedy legacy. >> right. >> do you get a sense talking to his friends that he felt enormous pressure? i remember, 15 years ago, we were all still trying to figure out what his impact would be, what path he would take. of course, we will never know. did he feel enormous pressure from that? >> i thenk he did. he was this man in motion, constantly roller blading, kayaking, a man in motion and that's because he couldn't stop. he said if i ever sat down, i would crumble. i would fall apart if i ever thought about all the things that were expected of me and all the things that happened to my family. >> at some point in their lives he's a young adult and she, of course, is his mother. their lives were similar. neither of them could do anything without making headlines. >> exactly. >> yet there was a double standard between the two of
8:24 am
them. >> right. >> she would go out and date somebody new and she would get -- >> all sorts of flack for it. >> yet he would go out and be thought of the great bachelor. >> relationships with madonna, sarah jessica parker, long relationship with daryl hannah. >> did she weigh in on those relationships? >> she was careful not to impose herself on his romantic life but would let him know in subtle lives. when daryl hannah came to visit, she would eat dinner in another room on a tray. there's no doubt about how jackie felt about the woman in his life. the political landscape today would be very different, had he survived. we know now that john did intend to run for the new york senate seat in 2000 that hillary clinton ran for. he might have ended her political career before it even got off the ground. >> 15 years past his death and you find more to write books about. is it because you're learning more through your research or more of his friends are willing to talk?
8:25 am
>> both. numbers of people i spoke with, these interviews were published during their lifetimes as well, peter salinger and the names we all associate with the kennedys. arthur schlesinger jr. and so on. these people asked me not to divulge everything that they told me and now that they've passed, i'm allowed to do that. i've gone back to those interviews. >> the book is called "the good son." christopher anderson, always good to have you here. >> thanks, matt. >> we'll be right back. let's go over to tamron. >> yes. coming up, matt, one of the youngest oscar nominees ever, all grown up. come on in. you know the face. haley joel osment making a big return to the big screen. we're going to catch up with him. first, your local news and weather. good to see you!

9:04 am
>> she wasn't on the show. >> people go on oprah show, you get a car. lori gets a selfie? >> what should she have done? >> i have one better. the story also reveals that oprah, i follow her on instagram. she is obsessed with truffles. she has been truffle hunting. this is her new fancy thing to do. at the restaurant, oprah ordered a burger and said let me go in my purse and give you my truffle, which are like 300 zillion dollar. >> i don't like truffles. >> i don't either, but she could have given lori a truffle. >> on the other hand, her -- she said that oprah couldn't have been nicer. >> oh, yeah, yeah. oprah is always good. not just because she's the most powerful person in the world. she is a wonderfully nice, has been nice to me since the day i met her. but if oprah had run over my

9:06 am
>> by the way, they're good friends. >> best friends. >> she's just mad at the racket. it was the racket's fault. come on. anybody who has played tennis, you know it's always the racket's fault. >> it's never you. never to blame. >> she ends up -- she goes on to win. even more impressive, she used that racket. she did. >> now, that would have been something. >> she did. people were stunned. >> she probably could. >> for a minute i believed you, for that one -- >> you believed that? >> because i believe in him. >> oh, my gosh! get over that. you haven't been here long enough. >> that was worth its weight in gold. >> i was like, really? >> oh, my gosh. jeez! >> you would have been the perfect little sister. you really would have been. >> because i believe in you, you exploit it. >> all the time. here is an interesting idea. what do you dow guys think of an u bech uber -- sort of uber like service for kids?
9:07 am
that car service, it's an app. you download the app, say where you are, where you want to be picked up. the driver picks you up. you can watch the car come, all of that. you agree on a rate and it takes you wherever you want to go. so there's an idea now, actually a service already being offered in san francisco. it's called shuttle. they are allowing this service now to hire drivers for parents who want to have their kids be transported somewhere. say they have ten soccer games. sounds like my weekend. >> you can't make it. >> hopefully you would make the kid's soccer game. >> but if you can't -- >> they do a lot of background checks, look for two references and also hire people who have experience working with children. in case you're saying never, ever, ever would i let a stranger drive my child somewhere. >> right. >> they do all the work upfront, pass the background checks and
9:08 am
requirements. most of the drivers say -- all their drivers are female drivers and they are nannies, teachers or child care providers looking to make some extra money on the side. it sounds like an interesting idea. you pay $9 a month to get started. you download the app and, of course, whatever the additional cost is of the actual drive itself. would you do something like this? >> i might if, if -- and it depends on the age, too. if i had exhausted all possibilities. >> right. >> babysitter, my brother, family friend, something like that. if you're in a desperate situation then, yeah, i would say. >> someone you -- >> hiring a driver. >> going to a daycare, for example, that you haven't used before. some people have emergency daycares. >> that's what i mean. >> sometimes you put your -- leyla is going in a cab already. >> she's almost 16. but i think if you need it, it's
9:09 am
good and people make their choice. >> certainly in urban environments. i live in a town and we only have one car. my kids are at that age, they're playing lots of soccer games. when you can't carpool, you are desperate. and sometimes you can't find a ride. >> i think the market will figure it out. >> another thing that jumps out to me, all female drivers. there are, i'm hoping, some safe male drivers. >> of course there are. i think right now -- >> when they say all female, you have to go through the background check no matter -- >> no matter what. and i'm sure -- >> catering to families and thinking they would be -- >> have you ever had a male babysitter or anything like that? >> yeah, my dad. >> not for you, for your kid. >> for my kids. >> but other than that -- >> yeah, i would. absolutely. it would be a great idea. >> especially for boys, it would be fun for them, big brother. >> joe gets a little break. >> here is a funny video on its
9:10 am
own. >> okay. >> a guy gets stung by a wasp. the best part is his wife thinks this is hilarious. >> uh-oh. >> oh, my god! >> writhing in pain, throwing himself on to a hill. >> it was the way he was so animated. >> and his wife thinks this is hilariou hilarious. >> i thought it was good. i give him a ten there. perfect ten. >> but where is the -- >> her laugh. >> where is the concern? >> it's a wasp, al. he's fine. >> she knows her husband --
9:11 am
>> as long as he's not allergic, he's good. >> if he's not allergic, he's good. >> this happens when you're married a lot of times. >> let's reverse it. the wife got stung and the guy sits there laughing while his wife writihes in pain, throws herself on the ground. he would be voted husband of the year, wouldn't he? >> but that's not what happened. >> no. >> funniest video material. listen, today, our monday moment all has to do with pumpkins, halloween, as we move our way closer to friday. a lot of you spent the weekend carving some creations. erica jones might have won the monday moment. this is eric's carving of al roker, complete with umbrella, rain drops, everything. >> that's insane. >> that's crazy. >> that's amazing.

universal. good morning to both of you. this at-home test for colon cancer. dr. azar? >> who is this for? men and women over the age of 50 who have an average risk of colon cancer. they do not have a family history of colon cancer. they don't have a personal medical history that would raise their risk for colon cancer. this is indicated for them as a noninvasive test to screen for colon cancer. a few very important points to take home. one, it is currently not widely available yet. it still requires a prescription from your doctor. it's not like you can pick it up at a drug sto r and take care of your own health. the results have to be interpreted by your doctor. it's not meant to be a replacement for a true colonoscopy in people who are at high risk for colon cancer. some people are obviously uncomfortable with the prep and procedure. maybe we might be catching sort of more people this way. if you have a positive test on the screening test you still have to go through the colonoscopy to determine if this is a true positive or not.

>> important, as you said, if you have a family history, you want to go the regular route. >> the sensitivity is quite high, roughly picking up 92% of cancers, a few percentage points below what a colonoscopy can pick up. >> only about 60% of people who need colon cancer screening actually receive it. this test may be another way to increase that pull and get the screening tests up higher. special cocoa drink that seems to turn back the clock for memory. what is this? >> interesting study showing that cocoa beans have a compound called flavenoids and it's been shown to have health benefits. individuals had high concentrations of drink with cacoa in it. mri tests actually showed that areas of the brain associated with memory were enhanced. so i think that's very important. >> is this a license for us to drink lots of hot chocolate?
9:20 am
>> absolutely not. that's the total opposite of the message we're going to send. flavenoid-rich foods, it's a plant product. fruits and vegetables, wine. purely memory, not a lower risk of dementia but most of us will take what we can get. >> coffee drinking is a benefit against liver cirrhosis. >> caffeine particularly has a breakdown product that can reduce inflammation. liver cirrhosis begins with fibrosis, scarring, promoted by this process called inflammat n inflammation. three cups a day, this study in particular followed liver enzymes and found they were decreased by 25%. maybe offset some alcohol drinking with coffee drinking. that's my take-home message. >> thank you, both, dr. azar and
