6:06 am
appears to show the beheading of a british aide worker, david hawthorne haines. he's reading a statement and it looks like so many of the other videos that we've seen just like it. he's dressed in orange, a militant wearing a ski mask is standing next to him. the militants appear to be egging on the united states and great britain to get involved in this fight. the united states is currently trying to build a coalition against isis. and isis apparently feels it can survive air strikes, that there is not an effective ground force, and isis gave a lot of prestige by picking a fight with the united states, picking a fight with a superpower. just a few months ago, isis was a relatively small, not very well-known group. now it has a global brand. it attracts recruits. a few years ago, militants, aspiring terrorists wanted to associate themselves with al
6:07 am
qaeda. now, many of them have ditched al qaeda and they want to be like isis. richard engel, nbc news, erbil, iraq. >> the isis threat will be up for discussion this morning on nbc's "meet the press." chuck todd will talk with current and former white house officials. that comes your way this morning at 10:30 right here on nbc 10. today, people from eastern europe who live in the philadelphia region will come together for a demonstration against russian aggression in ukraine. the rally will happen at 2:00 this afternoon on independence mall next to the independence visitors center. the event will include speakers from the georgian, jewish, latvian, lithuanian and polish communities. cease-fire in eastern ukraine has mostly held since september 5th but there's been sporadic artillery fire. that's been the case this weekend in donetsk where heavy fire could be heard and plumes of smoke were visible over the airport, which is in the hands of the ukrainian government. most of the city of donetsk,
6:08 am
though, is controlled by pro-russian separatist rebels. next, there's new video out this morning from ferguson, missouri, and it could help prove that teenager michael brown had his hands up when a police officer shot him. plus, the ebola virus is showing no signs of slowing down. what medical experts say they need most to stop the deadly disease from spreading.
6:09 am
6:10 am
this is nbc 10 news. >> there's that sun we know and love. looking good out there. here's a live look over center city. a little bit breezy. temperatures are in the low to mid 50s in the city. they will warm up into the 70s, but looking at the seven-day forecast, we're not going to get into the 80s any time soon and we should be this time of year, so we'll definitely have to keep our eye on it and we'll give you more details in the forecast.
6:11 am
new cell phone video could back up claims that michael brown had his hands in the air when a police officer shot him to death last month. here's the video showing two landscapers working near the street where brown was shot. you can hear a man's voice in the video saying "he had his hands up." at the same moment, one of the workers raises his hands in the air. what other witnesses said about brown surrendering before he was killed. the u.s. justice department is now investigating this video. yesterday, family, friends, and suppers of michael brown demanded the arrest of the police officer who shot and killed him. dozens of demonstrators marched outside of a st. louis county jail. officer darren wilson was suspended from the force. he remains in hiding, though, because of threats against his life. to the ebola threat in africa. the world health organization is urging more international health workers to come to west africa to help contain the deadly virus. hundreds of medical experts and

back. our dad's a plumber. a business manager. and a stickler for homework. i'm john kane running for state senate. dad says the road to a good job starts in the classroom. [ lori ] he's a great dad who sees taxes going up but schools not getting the funding they need.
6:14 am
[ john ] so i'd put back the billion dollars corbett cut from education and make sure corporations and natural gas drillers paid their fair share. time to close the loopholes for the tax cheats. dad thinks a lot about education. i'm john kane and it's about time harrisburg did too.
6:15 am
i'm john kane now your nbc 10 first alert weather with meteorologist tedd florendo. >> no wet streets this morning, that is for sure, but it is a little chilly outside. at the art museum, it is quiet, tranquil this morning. it's still a little early this hour. the winds staying rather calm, but the temperatures are a different story, as we are starting off a little on the chilly side this morning, especially down in allentown. 51 degrees. cloudy skies for the lehigh valley. it's going to change a little later on today. northeast philly also at 51. 53 for millville. some other numbers to show you.
6:16 am
pottstown at 50. millville 53 degrees. 50 even for you in wilmington this morning. so if you step outside, some of you might need a light jacket this morning. others, maybe they like it, right? at least we're not into the mid 30s. at least not yet, right? relative humidity shows it's at 83%, but it's going to drop big-time for the day today. i'm seeing dew points down to 41 degrees this afternoon, so it looks like we're going to have a very comfortable day today. yeah, we'll be in the 70s, but at least the humidity will remain low, too. so yesterday we're at 72 degrees. the reason i'm showing you this is this is where we should be this time of the year. about 80 degrees. notice most of the week staying below 80 degrees. 76 is our surge for tomorrow. then we drop a little more on tuesday and wednesday, and still stay in the 70s later on in the week. so it's definitely going to be one of those weeks it's going to
6:17 am
feel a lot like fall. the rain out of here. that's pushed out to sea right now. now we've got dry conditions up and down the atlantic seaboard. this goes all the way up to new york, all the way to beantown, boston, the great lakes region. high pressure working its way in. basically what that is is sinking air and clears the skies, clears the atmosphere. that's why we're not going to see any rainfall for the day today. one place that is going to get the rain is down towards the desert southwest again. the atlantic seems quiet at this time, so we're still watching that. but the eastern pacific has been very active. this is hurricane odile now. it's going to lose its steam, but there's cabo san lucas down there. this is the gulf of california here and it's going to surge all its moisture up to the desert southwest. they're already battered with the flash flooding. they're going to get more of that midweek and also later on in the week. so they will definitely have to watch for more flash flooding
6:18 am
later in the week. 58 degrees at 8:00 a.m. sunny and cool this morning. noontime, still cool, 66 degrees. you'll see fewer clouds as the day progresses, and we've got plenty of sunshine. so nice later on for the day today. like i said, the humidity is going to stay real low for the day. another nice day for monday. tuesday is a little iffy because we've got some showers, especially in the morning and more clouds in the morning, but that's it, because after that, we're back to sunny, cool conditions. 72, 73 degrees. like i said, no 80s this week. we stay cool as we also head towards the end of the week. not a bad week at all, rosemary. >> only see one day with showers on there. i'll take it. thank you, tedd. pakistan's army is getting creative these days in their efforts to stop serious flood waters. they're using explosives. soldiers blasted a levy to redirect the flow of water that's threatening to cause even more damage in that country. recent rains and floods have

killed nearly 300 people in pakistan and injured hundreds more. flood waters have washed away many villages, affecting more than two million people in the country. now to health news. researchers say they have found a link between down syndrome and alzheimer's disease. as kyle dyer reports, their studies are pointing them to a possible cure, even a way to prevent alzheimer's in most adults. >> among the most exciting time in biomedical research there has ever been. >> reporter: top scientists have discovered a definite link between down syndrome and alzheimer's disease. >> as people with down syndrome got older and they didn't used to get older, but they do now. they got old enough to get alzheimer's disease. >> reporter: tom blumenthal and hunt potter are overseeing ground breaking research. among their inspiration, the faces of children they see in
6:20 am
photographs in the hallways. >> the best thing we could possibly do for them is to eliminate alzheimer's disease. >> reporter: blumenthal and potter will tell lawmakers in washington that to find a cure for alzheimer's, more research needs to be done into down syndrome, which is caused by an extra copy of the 21st chromosome and they say that extra copy has the gene that causes alzheimer's. >> we could add a drug[ that would prevent the -- what looks like a chain of events from starting and ending in dementia. >> reporter: how close are they to finding that drug? well, it appears pretty close. >> we discovered that people with rheumatoid arthritis make a protein, release it into the blood that seems to protect them. so the mice that are given this protein don't get alzheimer's disease and now we're starting a clinical trial to see if this protein can prevent alzheimer's disease in typical people. >> reporter: they're testing a
6:21 am
drug which is currently taken by people after bone marrow transplants. >> that was kyle dyer reporting. not everybody who wants to be part of this trial is going to qualify. right now, scientists are looking for those who have no other medical issues aside from the alzheimer's disease. it may take up to five years for some solid results from these studies. technically, the summer season isn't even over yet, but in some places, it's beginning to look a lot like christmas. many stores have their holiday displays up and they say it's all because of you.

6:25 am
retailers like k-mart, wal-mart, and hobby lobby say the reason holiday displays are up is simply a response to customer demand. >> i love christmas. >> reporter: donna is already out buying for her grandson and this is for christmas? >> along with his check. >> reporter: and this goes on the tree? >> the tree. >> reporter: 20% of all americans have already started their christmas shopping, and by halloween, that number is expected to double. >> $600 billion is on the line, so if you're a retailer and you are in the holiday space, you want to get in front of 40% of americans who are ready to shop right now. >> it's too early for christmas. so just to be clear, this is not a christmas commercial. >> reporter: in a nod to those who groan, this gets earlier every year. >> merry birthday, everyone. >> reporter: this year, americans are carrying more debt on their credit cards than they have in six years. $28 billion. one reason why major retailers
6:26 am
have started holiday layaway plans earlier. the national retail federation says the average american will spend $536 on gifts this year. >> i think the iphone 6 is beginning to be on the list. >> reporter: for adults, there are 104 shopping days left. but for kids -- is today christmas? >> yeah. >> reporter: today? >> yeah. >> reporter: christmas is always just around the corner. >> reporter: christmas is in four minutes? >> yep. >> reporter: four minutes from now? >> yep. >> reporter: and gifts are always in season. >> i want a dress. >> i want a little pony. >> reporter: what do you want for christmas? >> reporter: those kids are adorable. so when i asked them individually what they wanted, the boys want legos and the girls, aside from the one who
6:27 am
told me she wanted a pony, they all seemed to say they wanted something from "frozen." so getting the elsa doll from "frozen" right now, easy. as you get closer to christmas, well, you're on your own. kerry sanders, nbc news, clearwater, florida. this is nbc 10 news.
