7:02 am
>> a parade in new york in a few hours. if you're in the area, be careful of that. let's get to today's top story. this is the concern over ebola. after the infectionative woman who was treating dallas victim thomas eric duncan. nbc national correspondent kate know is here with the latest on that. kate, good morning to you. >> good morning to you, matt. screening began this weekend at jfk airport in new york. with so much concern about ebola all over the country, there are scares, at least three of them in the past 24 hours in los angeles, boston and you mentioned overnight, a flight that originated in dallas and flew to nashville. the hospital worker, meantime, who is infected, is in dallas. the apartment of a dallas health care worker now on full lockdown after she tested positive for the ebola virus over the weekend. other residents in the building have returned home after hazmat teams decontaminated common areas in the complex. the worker is being treated in
7:03 am
an isolation yount at tunit whe works. >> there were those in contact with mr. duncan before he pass add way last week. >> reporter: going door to door, passing out fliers. and trying to answer questions. >> can i talk to you. >> reporter: the hospital worker did come in contact with one person when she was exhibiting symptoms. that person is also in quarantine. the cdc says the worker had extensive contact with duncan and blames a breach of protocol for this infection. >> the two areas where we will be looking particularly closely is the performance of kidney dialysis and respiratory intubation. both of those procedures may spread contaminated materials and are considered high-risk procedures. >> reporter: a nurses' union voiced their concerns.
7:04 am
>> hospitals are not providing the training we need, nor are they providing the personal protection we need to keep our patients, ourselves, our families and our communities safe. >> the texas hospital worker is the owner of a dog. authorities say they plan to eventually reunite the dog with its owner. meantime in nebraska, the family of ashoka mukpo got some good news over the weekend. doctors say their son is turning a corner. the family deeply relieved. matt? >> dr. ezekiel emmanuel is the chair of medical health ethics and policy at the university of pennsylvania, and served as a special adviser to the white house for health policy under president obama. dr. emmanuel, good morning. good to see you. here is the part that have that jumps out to me. our hospitals are not providing the training that we need, nor are they providing the personal
7:05 am
protection that we need to keep our patients, ourselves, our families and our communities safe. we've been talking about this ebola virus for months now. how could that be? >> well, i think there is a lot of training needed and, you know, the case obviously focuses a lot of attention especially on the degowning and other high-risk procedures. and we do have to step up training. this is one of those things where you need constant attention and people need to go to the next level here. >> do we have the right facilities? when dr. brantly and nancy writebol were brought to this country, they were brought to one of four special units in this country. mr. duncan did not go to one of those special units. i'm not trying to cast aspergss on that facility but he pass add way and a worker now contracted the virus. does the facility matter? >> it's not the facility.
7:06 am
it's the training. there's nothing special about the rooms. >> but if you have a special isolation center -- >> it's really about -- it's really about how the health care workers gown, degown. it's about the standard processes of care. and i do think you're pointing out to the issue of training and the standard processes of care and that's what we need to focus on. and, remember, the two workers who went to nebraska and emery were identified in west africa, sent there. he showed up in dallas. moving him around was probably not on the top of the list. we do know that that hospital has had other mistakes in the management of that patient. >> would you like to see regional facilities set up right now to deal with wherever this virus goes? >> given the fact that we aren't going to have a big outbreak, the idea of specializing it in a few places is right. the moment you specialize and focus a few workers on a few patients, you do increase their risk. >> as a medical ethicist,
7:07 am
volunteers were treating those patients at emory university hospital. they said if you don't want to be here, you don't have to do this. >> correct. >> is that the way to go in the future? only the people who volunteer for the assignments should be given the assignments? >> that depends on the issue. if you have very few patients, you can do it with volunteers. that is preferable, that people consent to it. everyone in the medical profession knows you have to treat patients and the system has the responsibility to keep the risk to those health care workers as low as possible, equipment and procedures. but doctors and nurses have the responsibility to take care of sick people. that's why we signed up for the job. >> we've been told time and time again the only way to transmit the ebola virus is person-to-person contact with body fluids. here is a scene outside the health care worker's home in dallas.
7:08 am
and they seem to be disinfecting a sidewalk. why would they need to be doing that if the only way you can get ebola is person-to-person transfer of bodily fluids? >> i can't exactly answer that. in the case of this nurse, it looks like they were removing gear that got in contact with bodily fluid. the sidewalk does not seem to be the right place. but i'm not an expert. decontamination. >> maybe to rest the fears of people. >> and, again, a lot of that is about fears, checking temperatures when people come into the country is probably not going to be our best use but it does reassure people. panic is something we can't afford in this. that also can lead to a lot of mistakes of people. and we do have to keep people more rational about this. we've had two cases in this country. we have not had a big outbreak and we need to be very clear about that. >> keeping it in perspective.
7:09 am
zeke emmanuel, thank you very much. >> thanks for having me. >> let's go over to natalie. millions of americans are being threatened by a massive storm system slowly moving east. dylan is in for al. what are we looking at? >> the severe weather started last night and will become a really bad outbreak as we go through the day today for straight line wind damage in excess of 70 miles per hour. that causes a lot of damage. warm, moist air from the south. temperatures running in the mid 80s. cool, dry air back behind this front. temperatures in the 50s and 60s. it's that clash of air mass that will cause this severe weather to break out. we've seen it back through dallas. we've had tornado warnings in the dallas area overnight. you can see still some pockets of heavier rain. going through texarkana and the midwest, that's where we're starting to see our torrential downpours. this is our tornado watch. it includes shreveport,
7:10 am
louisiana. we have severe thunderstorm warnings. and that's going to be the setup as we go through the day today. this area in red will see strong storms. we're looking at our best chance of wind gusts in excess of 80 miles per hour and also perhaps hail as large as two inches in diameter. we have to watch it today. it will continue into tomorrow, too. >> dylan, thank you very much. turkey is now granting coalition jets access to its air bases. this, as the parents of an american aid worker being held by the terror group make an emotional new plea for their son's safe return. nbc national correspondent peter alexander sat down with them. peter, good morning to you. >> matt, as you can imagine, ed and paula kassig are heart broken, desperate. their son was kidnapped one month ago. when his picture surfaced on tv
7:11 am
days ago they decided to speak out in hopes that he will hear their words. >> we haven't forgotten, we haven't abandoned him and we certainly do love him. >> reporter: he changed his name to abdul rahman. >> he was taken with the religion as he was with the people. >> reporter: his extraordinary selflessness that inspired the former u.s. army ranger to go to syria to aid that country's refugees. isis released this clip of kassig days ago, the first time his parents had seen their son since he left home and was kidnapped. >> can you describe that feeling when you found out that your son had been taken? >> tell the people watching right now to ask that question and they'll have all the answer
7:12 am
they need. >> reporter: a recording from their son, the last time they heard from him. >> he described that his time is running out and he was made to tell what he was supposed to tell. >> reporter: they also shared portions of a handwritten letter from abdul rahman. >> if i go down, i won't go down thinking anything but what i know to be true, that you and mom love me more than the moon. >> he knows this is bigger than being just about him. and we do, too. >> terribly difficult time for that family. the kassigs tell me they've had very little contact with abdul rahman's captors, only some demands and every demand has
7:13 am
been unmeetable. oscar pistorius could be sent to prison for up to 15 years at the sentencing phase of his trial is under way in south africa. he was convicted of culpable homicide last month. the double amputee admitted firing shots into the bathroom of his home, killing his girlfriend in february 2013. protests boiled over in st. louis again sunday night. 17 people were arrested in a convenience store parking lot amid a four-day summit to protest the august police shooting death of 18-year-old michael brown. st. louis police said -- the chief actually said on twitter that protesters were attempting to storm the business. those protests reignited this weekend after the shooting death of another black teenager by a white police officer last week. and in hong kong today, hundreds of young men, some wearing masks, attacked
7:14 am
protesters. earlier in the day, hong kong police began removing barricade that is protesters had erected over the past two weeks. they said they want to relieve traffic congestion in the central business district. they began occupying hong kong streets last month after beijing said it would choose candidates for hong kong's top leadership position in the next election. today the faa reopens that control center severely damaged by an intentionally set fire. the facility in aurora, illinois, was closed for two weeks. a contract employee cut cables and set fire to a basement telecommunications room. that disruption forced the cancellation of thousands of flight. the contract worker, brian howard, is facing numerous charges. two young boys were injured, one critically, when the bouncy house they were in went airborne. we reported on thing like this before. it happened at a fund-raising event in new hampshire. the 2 and 4-year-old boys were
7:15 am
playing in that bouncy house when a gust of wind picked it up and carried it 50 feet before it crashed to the ground. the 2-year-old was air lifted to the hospital. the 4-year-old was taken by ambulance. the nature of their injuries is not known. it's 7:15. we've talked about this. and the association -- there's an association that oversees these bouncy houses. when these incidents have happened in the past, make sure you're tethering them down properly and pivoted to the responsibility of those operating the bouncy houses. it's scary. >> it's scary. >> tamron, thank you so much. we should mention, al is off today. that's why we're -- >> that's why i'm here. >> happy to have dylan here. what's going on? >> midwest, stretching down into eastern texas, including the western panhandle of florida. that will be over the course of the day today. it's in red, right across arkansas, into western tennessee, into northern mississippi and alabama. that's where we could see wind gusts up to 70 to 80 miles an
7:16 am
hour. also flash flooding is possible with two to three inches of rain falling in a short period of time. that's a look at the weather time. that's a look at the weather across thmaking coffee? yeah, enough for two. gosh. try four, buddy. hmm, i'll take a dark roast. chai tea, please. honey, text the man what you want. french vanilla, make it strong! the all new keurig 2.0 is here. brew for one, brew for all. good morning. i'm meteorologist bill henley. clouds have moved in and will be with us most of the day. a few breaks of sunshine, but spotty light showers. highs in the upper 60s, typical for this time of year, but more summerlike starting tomorrow. partly sunny skies.
7:17 am
82 degrees after a morning low of 60 and back up to 80 again on wednesday. there's a chance of showers later wednesday, possibly some early storms on thursday. and we will be clearing out as we go towards the weekend. have a great day. >> and that's your latest forecast. >> dylan, thank you very much. if you use snap chat to share photos, listen up. carson is here with another problem that hundreds or thousands apparently may be at risk now. >> we've been hearing a lot about the hacking of the celebrity nude photos online. now that's reaching the noncelebrity field called snappening. 200,000 videos and images have been leaked and here is what snap chat is saying, we can confirm that snap chat's servers
7:18 am
were never breached and were not the source of the leaks. 60 million users, 400 millions snaps per day is the volume. a lot of those users are under the age of 18. the irony of the fact that snap chat has been developed so that things can disappear online is not lost on social media. the snappening, there is no internet privacy. this is a big story, guys. >> they don't just disappear then. >> i never thought they did, though. >> they had to go somewhere, right? >> was it an isolated incident? rally held for the victims of alleged hazing at the hands of high school football players. seven students now arrested. where is hannah graham? police are now changing their strategy. what investigators are focusing on now. first this is "today" on nbc.

good morning, everyone. 7:26. i'm chris cato. it's time to get your first alert forecast with meteorologist bill henley. and bill, it should be a very october-like monday out there. >> yes, cool and cloudy for now, but there are some breaks of sunshine. over center city, it's just cloudy skies, but look at cape may. skies are starting to brighten there, but there still may be passing showers. in fact, we're watching showers move through delaware, delaware bay, headed for cape may right now. temperatures are headed for the 60s, but right now 58 degrees in philadelphia. and it's been an active morning on the roads with several accidents. let's get an update with katy zachry now. >> we'll get to one of our biggest accidents in a minute, but first, the volume that's building on 95 right at cottman avenue. this is the northbound lane. a penndot truck just pulled up

with an accident involving two vehicles. it's been in the right-hand lane. there is no shoulder because of long-term construction projects. so, you can see cars are trying to snake around that. and for drivers in new jersey on the new jersey turnpike southbound, there's still an issue between exits 4 and exits 2 because of an overturned truck. those lanes are off limits. here's what else we're following. a firefighter was hurt while battling a fire at a dance studio in bensalem early this morning. the fire broke out around 4:30 a.m. at the bucks county dance center on street road in bensal bensalem. officials tell us that firefighter's injury was minor. no one else was injured. no one was inside the building at the time the fire started. no word on the cause. eagles fans celebrating the birds' first shutout in 18 years this morning. the eagles demolished the new york giants 27-0 in "sunday night football." birds are 5-1 now. we'll have another update in about 25 minutes.

7:32 am
scandal that's hit sayreville, new jersey, and had seven students arrested. instead stephanie gosk has the story. >> reporter: they canceled homecoming. they're usually celebrating their local faheroes in the pau and now they're left wondering how seven of them can be facing these allegations. >> we ask your blessings on this community. >> reporter: sayreville memorial high school, the emphasis not on the game but a message of anti-bullying. >> a lot of hurt. a lot of things going on. we need to come together as a community. we need to support the victims. >> it could have been their children. it could have been anybody's child. >> very upset about it. >> reporter: rally in response to a hazing scandal in sayreville's celebrated football program, alleged abuse attacks
7:33 am
by upper classmates. 15 to 17-year-olds were arrested over the weekend on numerous charges including aggravated sexual assault and criminal restraint. exclusive reports in new jersey advance media claim the assault took place last month and involved the pinning down of a freshman before sexually assaulting him. because the accused players are juvenile, the criminal complaint, including their names, is not part of the public record. concerned parents and friends worry the crimes will leave a lifelong mark on the victims. >> the football season is a very small issue compared to what happened. i mean, kids were violated. and the football season is nothing compared to the pain and hurt that they probably will have to go through for the rest of their life. >> reporter: the criminal charges, along with the superintendent's decision to end the season, has created a rift in this town. everyone agrees that these alleged hazing charges are wrong
7:34 am
but there are still some people in had community that think a majority of the team not involved is now suffering the consequences. natalie? >> stephanie gosk in sayreville, new jersey. thank you, stephanie. kevin sayek and dr. lavie is the superintendent of the school. the allegations are absolutely horrific. what was your reaction when you first learned of the actions allegedly done by these seven players? >> it's been a wild ride for us. you know, i will say this. you know, we have received limited information, naturally, due to the fact that the middlesex county prosecutor has a very difficult job in terms of investigating this. so, we've been given limited information from the beginning. but enough information to make the very difficult decisions
7:35 am
that we've had to make. you know, moving ahead, we decided to cancel our season based upon information that was provided to us, that there were acts of harassment, intimidation and bullying the a widescale level that was tolerated by the student athletes in that program. we're now reading the accounts in the papers and we're seeing the charges and we're as horrified as everyone else is. >> the prosecutors indicated that the hazing may have actually extended beyond this season and may be pervasive. could more students now, in fact, be charged? >> that piece we're leaving to the middlesex county prosecutors office. the board of education and the administration has not had an opportunity to begin our investigation. we're waiting for the prosecutors office to conclude theirs. >> dr. labbe, how is it that the coaching staff was not aware of
7:36 am
what was going on? >> that's a question that we're, you know, certainly going to be asking. we have already launched a holistic harassment and bullying investigation. we started it last monday on our entire athletic program as well as our extracurricular activities. we're fo first and foremost focusing on the level of supervision we provide our students within those programs and investigating if there's any other forms of harassment, intimidation or bullying in our athletic programs or extracurricular activities. as soon as we get the green light from the middlesection county prosecutor to begin to investigate the program, we will, and we'll begin with interviews of our coaches. >> to those parents who are angry, because they say all the students on the football team are being punished for the actions of the few, for these seven players, what would you like to say to those parents, particularly to the parents of the victims here? >> first of all, it's important
7:37 am
to note that when we look at these events and you look at the parent reaction, certainly i understand the concern of the parents. because they're looking out for their children. but when you look at the sayreville community, that reaction is not reflective of the entire community. we're a close-knit community. volunteer fire department, volunteer rescue squad. we come together to raise funds for a family who has a child who has a brain injury. we help our most vulnerable. you look at the sayreville community, we will help and assist the victims of these tragic events in any way that we possibly can. you have seen that last night with the actions of maureen jenkins, organizing the rally in support of the victims of these events. >> school board president and superintendent richard labbe, we appreciate your time with us this morning. thank you. >> thank you, natalie. >> new, natalie. let's swing over to dylan

who is in for al with a check of the weather. >> the tropics decided to get active. tropical storm faye, which also battered bermuda, with winds up to 80 miles per hour. that will continue to move up to the north and east. we're watching tropical storm gonzolo. it's moving into a very favorable environment in the leeward islands. as it gets closer to puerto rico, there's a chance it could strengthen to nearly a hurricane. either way after it crosses over puerto rico, that's when we'll see hurricane force winds. over the course of the next 24 hours, it's fairly fast moving. we have hurricane watches in effect for puerto rico, the u.s., british virgin islands and we have tropical storm warnings for antigua. it will take a turn to the west and then a sharp turn to the north and east. bermuda could start to see some of the effects. by the time we go into saturday
7:39 am
morning at 2:00 am, there's a strength it could strengthen into a category 2 hurricane. hopefully, it will continue this path as good morning. i'm meteorologist bill henley. clouds have moved in and they're going to stay with us for most of the day. a few breaks of sunshine, but also some spotty, light showers. high temperatures in the middle to upper 60s, typical for this time of year, but more summerlike starting tomorrow. partly sunny skies, 80 degrees the high after a morning low of 60 and back up to 80 again on wednesday. there's a chance of showers later wednesday, possibly some early storms on thursday and we'll be clearing out as we go towards the weekend. have a great day. >> and that's your latest forecast. >> dylan, thanks. why police are taking a new approach in the search for college student hannah graham. >> are you selfie obsessed? the woman who just showed the

8:17 am
we are kicking off a new series this morning called "put it to the test" with a consumer alert for drivers. sheneille joins our weekend team. good morning. >> good morning, natalie. you're driving with your family when, without warning, your car spins out of control. there's a big mistake drivers make when buying new tires that can cause you to crash when it
8:18 am
rains. we're about to show you firsthand the danger. when you buy new tires for your car, could you unknowingly be putting your family at risk of this? >> oh, my gosh! oh, my goodness. >> experts say in this kind of weather, good tread on your tires is critical for control. most family vehicles come with front wheel drive, meaning without regular location, the front tires can wear out faster than the rears. many drivers simply replace them with two new ones. >> purchase two new tires and put them on the front, believing they're doing the best and most safe thing for their situation. what that really does is leads to an unsafe situation in the wet. >> to show the danger, we came here to michelin tires test track in south carolina. test car, this popular family sedan. we rigged it with nine cameras to capture every gechlt on the
8:19 am
front wheels, michelin installed brand new tires. on the rears, half worn tires, still with plenty of tread. >> here we are at one of our wet test tracks. >> then with sarah robnson by my side -- >> you are ready for testing. >> -- i pulled on to the track where they simulate aid recent rainstorm. >> we're approaching about 50 miles an hour. the front tires feel like they're hanging on really well. >> yeah, they do. but then, without warning, my rear tires lost grip, the car spinning out of control. >> one moment you're driving. everything is fine. and then, in an instant, everything changes. >> everything changes. look, we crossed about four lanes of traffic there. that could have been catastrophic. >> that could have been deadly. >> yeah. >> so why does this happen? experts say the tire with his the lowest tread will lose grip
8:20 am
first. in this case, that's the rear wheel. >> once they get to the point where they can't move any more water, they literally lift up. so when they let go, the car spins out. >> so what would happen if we put the new tires on the rear wheel? on a front wheel drive car, it defies common sense. but back on our wet road at the same speed -- >> you're at 55 right now. >> -- the difference was amazing. this time i could feel when the tires started slipping and immediately slow down. >> now i feel it and i'm responding before i start spinning. >> because you're losing it in the front first, you're feeling it in the steering wheel. >> and i'm pulling back a little bit. this makes such a difference i wish everybody could feel what i feel. experts say if you're going to buy two new tires always have then installed on the rear wheels to help stop this from happening to you. this simple step could prevent a
8:21 am
fatality. it really could. >> it doesn't matter if you're driving front wheel drive, rear wheel drive or all rear drive. if you lose traction in the rear first, the car is going to spin. physics always wins. >> another way to avoid this hazard, rotate your tires every 5,000 to 7,000 miles that. will help them to wear at the same time. all new cars had to have stability control, which can certainly help to stop a spin. it's no guarantee. >> you handled that spinout well. >> it was scary. >> good information. thank you. here's matt. >> natalie, thank you. you know neil patrick harris from his roles on tv, film and broadway. now he is out with his auto biography. you start the book with a warning. this self-serving celebrity autobiography is derch from other self-serving celebrity autobiographies. this is a choose your own
8:22 am
autobiography meaning you and you alone and me, and me alone, will be responsible for living the life of neil patrick harris. >> making choices as if you were me. if you want to have babies go to page 164. if you would rather go hang out with elton john in his amazing place in nice you can. by the way, it's nice. >> not nice. you will end up happy, successful and married to the man of your dreams. choose poorly, you'll end up fat, balding and slicing turkey behind the shlotzke's. >> been there. good sandwiches. >> were you good at it? >> ish. >> good-ish? since you want people to choose your autobiography and navigate
8:23 am
through your life, let me let you navigate through this interview. >> great. >> would you like to start with de do doogie houser, doogie houser or doogie houser? >> look at that picture. >> you will remain so for four years and unoechings'ifficially some extent for the rest of your life. >> i thought it was fun to talk about the minutia of that chapter. it was a pivotal point in my life. it's a stephen botchko show. the writing was really good on it. and the work ethic was really strong. >> i would think because you became a household name after that show that when it was over every door in hollywood was open and you say that's not necessarily the case. >> it was in early '90s it was done. there was a big divide between tv and movie people.
8:24 am
when you were acting on television it didn't have the same kind of -- didn't flow into movies the same way that it does now. >> you write about a lot of the roles you've taken on over the years. you also write about your childhood and describe it as pretty normal. were you the kid in all the class plays at a young age? >> i was. i grew up in a small ski resort town, born albuquerque, then moved there. one high school, one elementary school. no one locked their doors. it wasn't a real art centric place. >> did you get the lead in all the plays? >> i was a precocious little kid, for sure. >> your career doesn't surprise anyone that went to school with you? >> no, not really. i was -- yeah, i liked being an extrovert. it was fun. >> because it's your autobiography, you are a gay man and you talk about that. >> how dare you, matt lauer.
8:25 am
>> i'm sorry. did i just out you on national television? you talk about the pressures of coming out. >> yeah. >> obviously it worked out well for you. there was no impact on your career. if you were advising some other high-profile person right now who is thinking about it, what advice would you give him? >> wow! that's a really loaded question in many ways. i think that process of coming out publicly is a super individual one. i don't think that there's any one way to do it or any one person to tell you when to do it. it's little baby steps. it's acceptance. once that happened, i met david. he was a super great guy and it seemed like being together, wherever we went, as opposed to only being together in certain places seemed like it needed to happen and for me the timing happened sort of in weird circumstances, which i talk about a bit in the book. but it worked out great. i've been working more than ever and no complaint. >> you deal with a lot of serious issues but there's humor
8:26 am
in almost any situatio at 8:26 sky force 10 is over this breaking news and this is impacting a lot of people on the new jersey turnpike. a dump trunk is turned over there. the driver was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. let's get to the first alert traffic reporter on how this is affecting traffic. we've had a lot of issues for drivers this morning on the new jersey turnpike. so we have a overturned dump truck taking out the right-hand
8:27 am
lane. the right lane is blocked as you approach. moving down a little south on the turnpike between exits four and two, those lanes are closed off because of a overturned vehicle and there is an active investigation for that. >> let's get your forecast now with bill henley. no rain in the picture, right? >> not for most of the area, that's true. we saw a little sunshine to begin with but the clouds filled back in. now an hour and 20 minutes or there abo thereabouts. more are lining up in the west in maryland. 61 right now in dover. and eagles fans are celebrating the first shut out in years and they could not have picked a better team to do it against, the giants last night in sunday night football.

we're back now 8:30 on a monday morning, 13th day of october, 2014. columbus day. and a huge crowd on the plaza. did you ever have somebody on the plaza say something to you that is intended to be really sweet but comes out funny? a lovely lady just said to me i'm 84 years old. i watch the show every morning. you have been in my home for 65 years. >> you, matt lauer. >> not quite you. >> i think that's a compliment.

guess who stopped by to visit us, russell brand, out with a new book called funny and, as always, thought provoking. russell will tell us all about it in russell fashion, which is a compliment. >> "revolution." can you believe today marks the reopening of the rockefeller rink? a special performance from olympic greats davis and white. >> beautiful. look at that. >> nice. we're going to do a little cooking with the scottos who are here. main course and desserts with wine, kathie lee and hoed qda w have that. >> i just walked by the kitchen. it smells delicious. >> i'm sure it does. perfect for columbus day. tornado watches are in effect. we'll see a risk of very strong storms in arkansas through western tennessee down into mississippi and northern louisiana. we could end up with wind gusts 70 to 80 miles per hour.
8:32 am
tomorrow that threat will spread a little further to the east. especially across eastern tennessee and western carolinas down into most of georgia where we could still see damaging wind gusts. flash flooding today. some of these storms could produce torrential downpours and the water piles up quickly on the roads. temperatures will be below average. highs tomorrow are only in the lower 60s, back through the plain states. we should only be in the low to mid 70s down across good morning i'm bill henley. clouds moved in and they will stay with us most of the day. a few breaks of shade but also spotty light showers. high temperatures in the middle to upper 60s. more summer like starting tomorrow. 80 degrees after a morning low of 60. back up to 80 again on wednesday. possibly early storms on thursday. clearing out as we go towards the weekend. have a great day.
8:33 am
>> and that's your latest forecast. matt? >> dylan, thank you very much. comedian, actor, best-selling author russelle brand is out with a new book. this one is called "revolution" from drug laws, redistribution of the wealth around the world. welcome. >> thank you very much. >> some may think comedy, some may think katy perry for whatever reason. >> i was married to katy, so make that association there. >> through go. >> i think people will be surprise by some of the topics you talk about, anything but funny topics. why did you write this now? >> recently i went back to the place i'm from. it's a bit like camden, new jersey. the people are good, the place sucks. when i was back there, i realized that ordinary people are getting shafted and they're not represented by the current political system. i thought who is the best person to do that? me. i would write a funny book expressing my opinions so a conversation can become about change, matt.
8:34 am
>> and you do combine serious topics with humor, no question about it. one of the subjects you talk about is drugs. you've been open and candid about the fact that you faced addictions in the past and yet you say you think all drugs should be oel. explain your stance on that and why you think it would work. >> drugs can be strongly regulated and they can't be strongly regulated if they're in the hand of the criminal economy. as a recovering addict myself, i want to make sure these people get the help athey need. >> are there stores people can go like some states in the country now where pot is legalized and go buy crack or heroin or something like that? >> i would imagine very toxic and dangerous substances that they would be farm suitically controlled by trustworthy people, not big farm suitical companies who pump drugs into people everywhere? how many people are on rittalin

8:42 am
it would just be me and ben, who plays marcus, and that wouldn't be as fun. >> he does such a good job, too. such a good actor. your other passion, music. you have your third album coming out as well. >> yes. >> congrats. >> thank you. >> it took a long time for this one, about seven years of a break. >> i didn't ever stop writing or recording. but have iing a child, i just - you can't go and promote and tour and -- i don't know. i could only do one thing at a time, when i had that baby. >> throw everything into motherhood, right? >> you really do and you can only pick one of your other jobs to carry on for a minute. so i carried on acting and making films. >> and your son, henry, by the way, i hear "ask me to dance" though is a personal story there. you apparently weren't asked to dance until you were 17 years old. is that right? >> i was very tall and looked a bit like slash when i was a teenager. and no one wanted to ask me to
8:43 am
dance. so i used to mutter under my breath at school dances, ask me to dance. ask me to dance, you know. it was really slow dances. young, short teenage boys don't want to ask gangly tall -- >> awkward? >> like you would be like that and if they were little, they would literally be eye level with my boobs and it would be quite uncomfortable for everybody. >> i think they liked that. you'll be here wednesday to sing from the new album. >> we are going to come and play on the show. >> really ecclectic mix of music from sinasm tra to the cure. >> yes. >> mini drivunie driver, thank being here. you can catch the season premiere of "about a boy" 9:30, 8:30 central time right here on nbc. you can an italian feast without the appetizers.

8:47 am
restaurant. i call it the devil's dish. >> it's our potato and zucchini chips. these are baking potatoes. you cut them very thin. you fry them, dry them off with a paper towel. the zucchini is cut very thin. floured and then fried. >> that's not the problem that's the devil's dish part. >> then the gorgonzola cheese and bake it in the oven. this is how it looks when it comes out of the oven. you fold it together. >> make a chip volcano with it. >> yes. >> let's move on to the rice ball. >> my mom has been playing with this and making it the best she possibly can for years. i've added a little egg to risotto we make with this. i make that egg mixture and risotto mixture a little bit al dente. the eggs are not cooked. we'll add to this a little proscuitto, cheese. >> keep mixing.

8:49 am
white bread that we use here, like regular simple bread. >> and this is soaked and then squeezed. so there's not too much milk in it. >> what kind of meat do you use? combination? >> i use chuck, which is 80% beef, 20% fat. >> you're really going to roll those out, matt. >> slices. >> yeah. >> what is that about? >> go ahead, mom. >> you mean the new york food festival? we're doing meatballs. >> that's what you're going to make? >> of course. and there, i stop my sons from touching a meatball. >> there you go. >> we finish it here with fresh ricotta cheese. >> that's just appetizer course? >> that's the appetizer course. >> and next hour you're getting to the main course. >> matt, one thing. with the meatballs there's one

9:04 am
really. snap chat actually went out and acknowledged it. they're blaming it on a third party app saying it had been collecting their data. so many levels of concern here. first of all how was a third party able to collect their data? >> separate apps. if you like something, a picture, you can click on it quickly and then store it. i'm not a snap chat user. >> store it is the problem. and, you know, last week or the last couple of weeks we were talking about celebrities and people were saying that's why you shouldn't take naughty pictures of yourself. a swimsuit picture, to some people -- i don't want my swim suit picture floating around. forget if you take it to level. do you want your neighbor or angry ex having anything from your phone or your computer that belongs to you? >> the problem is, as you said, third party apps, in response to snap chat, they developed these apps to keep the image. those apps are holding the data. that's where the breach came
9:05 am
out. >> there's no privacy. anything you put out there, assume it's out there. >> but that means pictures of your kids. >> yeah. anything. >> we escalated to the naughty pictures but we were talking earlier. we both use this -- i won't name the company. we upload our pictures and get them printed out. well, i don't know if they're storing my pictures. i love the calendar that i'm able to print out for the holidays. i mean, it's super fun but there are some holiday pictures of me in my swim suit, with the kids, with my mom that i don't necessarily want their employee having. >> even harmless photos as parents taking my pictures of my kids in the bath tub, you know, bubble bath. you worry about those pictures. half the time i don't develop them anyway. >> the only way you can truly have privacy is go polaroid, a new one is out, or have a printer at your home. that's expensive, time consuming
9:06 am
and we're about quick, fast and in a hurry. >> never take off my suit i sleep in a suit and tie. always right there. >> always ready? >> hello, sir. >> i go to the beach in a suit. perfect for me. >> you're just perfect. >> the willie approach. >> the perfect willie. so, have you heard this -- >> that sounds so strange. >> i'm going to move on. black friday apparently getting even earlier. just when you thought it wasn't early enough. it seems like you just finished your thanksgiving dinner, pull out the pie and everybody is getting up from the table and rushing off to the stores? macy's perhaps is opening even earlier now at 6:00 pm on thanksgiving, two hours earlier than last year. i guess they started 8:00 pm nationwide. we don't have this confirmed but a leaked e-mail went out apparently, sent to employees. they did say, though, last year was their best -- most walmart
9:07 am
stores open 24 hours. you're starting to see this black friday creep even earlier and earlier. it seems there's demand for that. people are pretty much putting away the pie. >> you don't have to go, you know. if you're offended don't get up from your table and go to macy's. if you want to go and think it's a good time to shop and you eat early, then good for you. >> make better pie. put your pie game on. >> the employees were asked and they really can't say no. >> that's tha happen happens i >> we'll be working thanksgiving. >> i won't but you will. i'll be working christmas. >> you have to call your agent. >> we do the switch off here. >> you're working thanksgiving, i'm working christmas. the bottom line is -- we do have that valid conversation about companies and what they make
9:08 am
people do. let's face it, pretty much any job will ask you to work on a day that you don't. somebody has to work on the holiday. >> you hope at least they're getting time and a half. are they being fairly compensated? >> especially when the numbers show that these stores are making money off opening earlier. >> then they can do their own shopping. >> take care of those employees. simone biles on the podium during national gymnastics championship where she won. they gave her the flowers. with flowers comes bees. she's like i'm not getting on that podium until the bee is gone and then kyla ross gets chased by the bee, puts her flowers down and everybody is happy at long last. no stings reported.
