7:00 am
previous meeting. feeling the squeeze, think it's tight on planes now? just wait. they're planning to add more rows of seats by taking away even more of your leg room. doubling imagines. nigella lawson photographed at a restaurant during what appears to be a heated argument with her husband. at one point, his hands around her neck and police are getting involved today, monday, june 17th, 2013. from nbc news, this is today with matt lauer and savannah guthrie live from studio 1-a. welcome to today on a monday morning. >> good morning everyone. president obama touched down in northern ireland early this morning and stepped into yet another delicate diplomatic dance. >> that's right.
7:01 am
just as he is about to meet with fellow g-8 leaders and talk about trade and economy in syria comes the new revelation from edward snowden. it could make things awkward. >> let's get to andrea mitchell who is covering this for us. good morning to you. good morning. edward snowden has struck even. he is released documents on high level spying on foreign leaders including the then president of russia. >> reporter: yet another disclosure that great britain spied on world leaders at two london summit in 2009. one of them targeted the then russian president. protestors outside the u.s. kons lit in hong kong were demonstrating in support of snowden, the acknowledged nsa leaker. >> i think a great person is willing to expose this. >> reporter: china is encouraging support for snowden
7:02 am
ever since he told a chinese newspaper last week that the u.s. hacked into computers there for years. on fox, dick chaney who helped institute it and congress rejected the surveillance program. >> i think he's a traitor and committed crimes by violating agreements begin the position he had. >> reporter: snowden is still believed to be in hong kong although the white house can't find him. >> i don't know where he is right now. >> reporter: the debate of the secret programs escalates. >> it's important that the american people know what's being done in their name. >> it is protecting the united states from terrorists attacks. >> reporter: lawmakers want more privacy protection. >> once the fbi gets the information then the question is who can look at it, what can you do with information? >> reporter: while the administration assesses the damage, this warning from former cia and nsa chief.
7:03 am
what i fare they learn is not what we're about to do but they learn what we're not allowed to do and they learn the limits of the program. >> there are unconfirmed reports that edward snowden has applied for asylum. also british officials say they haven't seen enough of the new documents to comment one way or another. it would not be surprising, nbc news reports years ago that the clinton administration eves dropped in miami and he would not stay at the summit retreat not knowing who would be listening in. thank you. let's bring in nbc's chief white house correspondence chuck todd. this would add awkwardness if not tension as these leaders converge in the uk amid allegations that there was spying during the g-20 in 2009.
7:04 am
>> there will be real tension and we'll get to that in a minute but in talking to senior administration officials about this, they have their oh, nothing to see here and they're shocked that that's going on between countries. countries do this to each other all the time. this is what happens at summits, this is what happens at negotiations. but that said, given what has happened and these summits, particularly the 1-on-1 relation ships between leaders are about trust so to add a level of distrust, particularly between the russians and there's a light hearted story about putin stealing a super bowl ring but i'm sure he won't be happy to hear the u.s. was involved in eaves dropping on his predecessor. >> they talk about syria and that has to be some of the primary work of the summit as they go on these couple of days. >> it is. the dominant issue of the summit
7:05 am
will be syria. it's a g- 8 but it's really a g-7 and 1. it will have a cold war atmosphere when president obama and putin have their 1-on-1 because they have a big disagreement over what to do about syria. >> reporter: after touching down, the president's first order of business, a speech to a mostly younger audience for north ireland's future. >> every single one of you possess something your generation before you did not. that's an example to follow. when those that took a chance on peace got started they didn't have a successful model to emulate. they didn't know how it would work. >> reporter: but the real focus of the quick trip is the g-8 summit as the u.s. and most of it's western allies try to prop up the country's two year civil war. tensions could run high between g-7 and russia as putin stuck by
7:06 am
syria's leader. he met with david cameron and his comments after that meeting may foreshadow a cold war-like exchange over syria when they meet later today. >> supply weapons to the government in regards of who has the blood of the children and peaceful citizens of syria, i believe you will not deny that the hands are on both of the parties. president obama is a reluctant supporter of arming the opposition and getting plenty of heat from congress. >> this is about whether or not we exert american leadership with our allies abroad both in the gulf region and in europe. >> last year he was isolated. he had very few friends. he was hanging by a thread. this year he is entrenched
7:07 am
hezbollah, iran and russia. >> the economy is taking a rare backseat at the summit. partly a reflection of the slow and steady recovery but how they pay taxes to the big 8 countries is likely to be a big issue. matt. thank you. something else expected to get attention the results of iran's election. a moderate cleric is replacing mahmoud ahmadinejad. he won overwhelmingly, what do we know about him? >> he's been backed heavily by the reformist but he's not a reformist. on the inner circle of the conservative rulers of iran. he has a good relationship with the supreme leader and the reformists that came out heavily
7:08 am
backing him. if it wasn't for the country's leading reformist he wouldn't have become president. >> when you think of the list of things the united states and iran disagree on. the nuclear program is one of the things that jumps out. how might this new president impact the direction of that program, if at all. >> well, he was chief nuclear negotiator during the late 90s, early 2000 and that's when they saw a suspension of uranium enrichment. he came under heavy criticism for that. it will be interesting to see what course he takes the nuclear program in. since he left power and ahmadinejad came into power they took a much harder line on the nuclear program. we'll have to see if he tries to reverse that at all or if indeed he can. >> most of the power in iran lies there so is he just a
7:09 am
figure head or will he have real power? >> we'll have to see if he can make tangible changes or this is just a softening turn. the supreme leader is the most powerful man in the land, the constitution says the president is the second most powerful man. we'll see easier negotiating part but the ultimate decision lie with the supreme leader and we don't know what he's thinking right now, matt. ali, thank you very much. well, firefighters in colorado are making more progress against the costliest wild fire in that state's history. david is in colorado springs this morning. david, good morning. >> reporter: good morning savannah. it is 65% contained right now but that doesn't mean the fire is out. they're calling it the blast forest fire and as we learned through the weekend as we toured the area, that's exactly what it looks like. we're talking 20 square miles
7:10 am
burned through neighborhoods. more than 500 homes have been burned to the ground here. two people have died and it's very hard for the 1200 crews that are out there and going acre by acre trying to put the fire out. it's burning in the most unusual places right now. not on a hillside, a ridge of fire you would normally see. this is burning underneath the ground and inside the trees -- yes, inside these ponderosa pines. it's very difficult but they're doing that this morning. thank you very much. >> encouraging news this morning about the health of britain's prince phillip. >> good morning. prince phillip left a london hospital walking out and waving ten days after abdominal surgery.
7:11 am

7:12 am

7:16 am
good morning. >> good morning. this is quite a story. they're made of gold and diamonds with a street value of tens of thousands. robert craft gifted his to the russian president, or did he? it seems odd two grown men disagreig over a ring but this is not an ordinary ring and these are not two ordinary men. the owner of the new england patriots and billionaire business man, vladimir putin, president of russia and self-described outdoors man. the story starts in 2005 when the patriots won the super bowl. the owner along with the entire team got a ring. not long afterwards he was part of a high profile business concert in st. petersburg russia where the ring exchanged hands. the russian president tried it on and kept it. craft said it was a gift. but now, 8 years later he told a
7:17 am
different story to a gala. he said i took out the ring and showed it to putin and he put it on and he goes i can kill someone with this ring. i put my handout and he put it in his pocket and three kgb guys got around him and walked out. according to the new york post he went on to say it was the bush administration that pressured him to call the ring a present for the sake of foreign relationships. bush officials wouldn't comment. he was a patriots fan his entire life. season tickets since '91, bought the team in '94. >> it means a lot more than the value of the ring and diamonds. you don't want to lose any ring from any championship and each one in it's own way is more important than the other. >> a spokesperson says thursday night's story was meant to be funny. it's a humorous story he retells
7:18 am
for laughs. he loves that his ring is there. >> on display for all the russian nfl fans. the u.s. russian relationship in 2005 wasn't strong. it sparked patriots fan clubs in russia. call it football diplomacy. >> what do we think happened? >> i think it's probably the original story, he said go ahead take it. >> he thought he'd get it back. tony blair stole my watch five years ago. >> did he really? ; think you'll get it back. ready for less leg room? major airlines push rows closer together. >> and the disappearance of madeline mccann, six years later, is there a chance the

much else. >> my sister and i have been best friends for as long as i can remember. we have done everything together. >> reporter: even cancer. marissa got her first diagnosis last year, just 23, the chemo claimed her hair. >> the hardest thing is not what i'm going through but it's having to watch the heart break of the ones that i love. >> reporter: melanie had just beaten cervical cancer. to show her love, she shaved her head. >> it meant more than i think she even knows. >> reporter: two weeks ago, more bad news, marissa's cancer can come back. >> they told her chemo and i found my clippers. >> reporter: but this time a reaction she didn't expect. the salon where she worked said her bald head could make guests
8:15 am
uncomfortable and she couldn't market hair products without hair and she had to wear a wig. >> i decided i can't support her 50% of the time. that's not why i did it. >> reporter: she felt she had no choice and re-signed. >> i consider, myself, my sister and every bald woman out there to be strong and beautiful. >> reporter: she posted the letter on facebook. it was liked, shared and eventually picked up by local news. melanie's description of events does not fit their culture or values and they're now investigating to sort out what happened. >> we have no policy that prohibits this and if there was a violation of any of our policies, then we will take the appropriate action. >> reporter: melanie's job they say is there if she wants it. the sisters say they're focussing on the future. >> when it comes down to it, you have your family and you have your faith. and if you can't stick up for those two things, then what really in this world are we

willing to stick up for? >> reporter: a bond they'll now rely on for marissa's battle ahead. let's get perspective on this. star jones is a former prosecutor and representative for the national association of professional women. good morning to you. >> good morning savannah. >> there seems to be a disagreement about exactly what happened here. melanie says she was asked to wear a wig and because of that she re-signed. the salon says -- well, the owners say they're not sure she even got the paperwork. she is free to come back and the job is hers if you want it. what do you think happened here. >> this is a failure of process and procedure at that particular and salon and not a failure of core values or policy of the company as a whole. the owner said we have supported our team members and i like the fact that they call them team members in all aspects of their community service or their
8:17 am
personal lives or families lives. they have actually supported this kind of incident in the past in one of the other salons so i think what happened was the salon manager and then the human resources and or director, they just didn't follow what the normal policy would have been. >> i mean, could an employer legally say to on employee you are not permitted to be bald? in the air salon setting? if it was not sick but voluntary. >> well, if it was sick, we'd have a problem but if there is a dress code or uniform you need to wear and you know that going into your employment, that's one thing. if you're in the hair salon and it's about being creative and funky and it may generate conversation with the guests or with a client. so i'm not sure that a salon manager can say, well, you know, we want everybody to have long hair, especially if you have a guy cutting hair next to you and that guy is bald.
8:18 am
so what is good for the goose is good for the gander. >> interesting discussion to have. star jones, appreciate it. now over to matt. thank you. now our monday medical round up. sibling rivalry and daddy brain. nancy snyder is nbc's chief medical editor. get right to it. new study released overnight on sibling aggression. >> right. >> 32% of children said they were bullied by one of their own siblings so when we talk about bullying, what kinds of behavior are we talking about here? >> this is a landmark study, it's verbal, physical abuse or taunting. it's also destruction of property. a sibling stealing stuff or wrecking it. over 3500 kids, this is in the journal of pediatrics and it shows while you and i talking about peer bullying, especially in the school setting, family bullying, sibling to sibling can
8:19 am
have the same fall out. >> a lot of kids bullied by a sibling are also bullied by peers in school but what stuck out to me in the study is even if they are only bullied at home it can have the same kind of devastating effect emotionally. >> it can even be mild. so, a sibling stealing stuff out of your room, wrecking it, taunting you and they followed kids from 11 months all the way up to 17 and they found that whether mild or severe, the fall out of anxiety, depression, feeling more vulnerable in school, that mattered. so i would say the parents, if you wouldn't take certain behavior from a neighbor you don't take it from one sibling to another. >> i have three kids and sometimes it drives you crazy to see how they treat each other. rarely physical in my house but it does get emotional and this say great warning to say enough is enough. >> it's a good story. >> thank you very much. >> you bet, matt. a tough topic is being taken

8:22 am
deployed but it's talked about less aufb. >> i don't want people to know about my dad. >> reporter: which is why he is talking about it with his friends on sesame street as part of a new tool kit for families and schools. for the folks here where 2-thirds of the inmates are parents, making that connection is essential. >> we want to make sure that the kids understand that what has happened has nothing to do with them. >> reporter: a message they cheerfully share with kids and parents alike. and alex, the new muppet won't be part of the regular cast. he's only part of that tool kit which is available online. >> tough conversation to have but makes it easier when it's with the friendly little faces. thank you and now over to matt. you may have heard there's one more kardashian to keep up with this morning. kim kardashian and kanye west became proud parents to a baby girl over the weekend.

8:39 am
makes me laugh all day and i'm like you're not as good as howie mandell. >> mel b. >> strict but fair. >> howard stern. >> i would say stern. >> stern with you or the contestants. >> he's a lamb behind the scenes but when the red light is on and they're recording he gets quite stern. >> one of the things that's different about this show than other talent shows is children are allowed to participate. you're the mom of four. do you get nervous when you have to be brutally honest with a child on stage. do you think about what would it will like if your own children were up there. >> of course i kid comes on to the stage and i always root for them and hope they're going to be good. especially when they sing and you're like it's my turn and i have to tell the kid the truth. i have to though. i'm a judge. i can't say they sounded amazing if they didn't but i always
8:40 am
think as a parent you also have to be kind of honest with your child's talent and maybe you should think about it if you put them up for something like that. >> we all tell our kids they're great at everything which does them a disservice in the end. >> yeah. >> so you're judging other people's talent. they're standing up there. what is your biggest talent. please demonstrate it right now. can you sing. >> oh goodness. >> your an actress. >> i'm giving you a zoolander look. >> are you dr. evil? >> i couldn't think of anything. >> do you have a talent we don't know. >> probably not. i was always good at modeling. that worked out for me i guess. >> not too bad. we have someone in the audience, beth, that wants to ask you a question. >> hey beth. >> hi heidi. >> how are you. >> what's your question. >> i was wondering what your best beauty secret is for women
8:41 am

8:45 am
before. >> reporter: meet california painter tom everhart who has taken the peanuts comic strip and transformed it into this. pop culture has become pop art. colorful, vibrant, unexpected. the paintings are so popular they have been shown in exhibits around the world, even in paris at the louvre and recently in new york city. but everhart admits he never imagined his career would be linked to snoopy and friends. >> it was the last thing i expected. >> because. >> i had no education in cartooning. even as a child i wasn't interested in cartoons. i was interested in coloring books. >> reporter: in 1980 he met the peanut's creator charles schulz and the two became fast friends. >> we did nothing but drawing lines for hours. thin lines, fat lines.
8:46 am
>> is he a good artist? >> phenomenal. >> he became so adept at drawing the characters he did commercial projects for schulz and schulz kept encouraging the artist to explore the comic strip in his own work but the painter wasn't ready. >> you were scared. >> yes. absolutely scared. >> then in 1988 everhart was diagnosed with stage four colon and liver county and he had an aidea. >> i realized what does it matter if the art world excepts what i'm doing. this is for me. >> reporter: he was intimidated. he would only incorporate iconic things from the strip. first the piano and then woodstocks nest and then lucy's hair do. >> maybe this is the start of something big. >> reporter: one day it
8:47 am
happened, a character pigpen, finally slipped on to the canvas. >> what got you over that. >> him. >> he pushed you. >> he kept pushing and pushing. he said come on. >> what are you scared of? >> yes, exactly. >> hundred of paintings later the art still celebrates peanuts but as charles schulz demanded, everhart made the work his own. >> mr. schulz wanted me to create something in his language but with my own thinking and things from my own life. >> some are inspired by rap. >> o.g. dog stands for original gangster dog. >> reporter: and others inspired by artists like monet. and just as schulz's writing and humor were critical, everhart's titles add his unique twist. >> does this make me look fat. if you look, probably 4 to 500
8:48 am
woodstocks in black and white. >> do you ever worry anymore about what people think? >> no, i don't. i actually enjoy it. >> reporter: and while charles schulz died in 2000, everhart says he is always looking over his shoulder. >> what do you think he would say if he was here? >> he would be smiling. when he came to our studio several times he would say these look like my children. i can't believe i didn't draw these. >> how much do you miss him? >> i miss him every day. >> reporter: and the price tag, not peanuts guys. some of these paintings go for $150,000. it is a real testament to tom that schulz gave him his blessing to use the characters and if you hurry you can still see the paintings for a couple of more days in soho at the gallery in new york but they are gorgeous. >> you just made one guy very happy.
8:49 am
tell them what happened. >> a few years ago there was an auction at our kid's school and i got one for like $500. >> and it's in the landing going up to the kid's room. >> and the code on the alarm at al's house is -- >> wow, good for use. >> put museum glass on it. >> what is in yours? >> it's snoopy but it's very close up and all kinds of geometric shapes around him. >> so cool. >> hey guys, that is why al is this morning doing the snoopy dance. >> you got it. >> jamie, thank you so much. coming up next, meals on wheels, where to find the country's best food trucks. we'll try some out ourselves. but first, this is "today" on nbc.

welcome back to "today" on this monday morning, june 17th, 2013. i'm willie geist along with al and natalie. coming up this half hour, are you friends with your exs on
9:30 am
facebook? how would you feel if your spouse friended an ex? we'll get into those situations and more with a panel of experts. >> and as we often do around here, we'll be going to the dogs asking the vet for common pet problems and then we'll talk about the dogs. and we're also paying a visit to our class of 2020 because the kids we have been following it since kindergarten, they're on their way to middle school. they caught up with them as they mark a huge milestone, their 5th grade graduation. >> this is a really great little round up to see how they have evolved and grown over the last six years. >> off to middle school. we'll catch up with them but first al has a look at the weather. >> we'll show you what we have going on. as far as today is concerned, wet weather, mid-atlantic states into the gulf. slight risk of strong sto northern texas up into ten tral plains. beautiful out west. toasty in the southwest. rain in the pacific northwest. tomorrow expands in the interior
9:31 am
of pacific northwest. sunny, hot and interior southwestern states. looking for heat to continue through the gulf coast. more wet weather moving into the northeast in parts of southern new england, mid-atlantic coast on into the lower mississippi river valley. that's what's going on around the country. here's what's happening in your neck of the woods. good morning. a few showers north st. mary's county, lower part of the eastern shore. storm team 4 next several days forecast showing afternoon highs today in the mid-80s. passing thundershowers possible, no the severe. more of the same tuesday. then wednesday with a northeast persistent wind, a lot of clouds around, maybe passing showers or after thundershowers. after that lower humidity for thursday, friday. more humid for saturday and and that's your latest weather. thanks. have you ever snooped through your partner's e-mails or texts or asked them to defriend an ex on facebook.
9:32 am
what if your boss was sending inappropriate messages. what would you do? >> those questions were asked by good and in conjunction with mens and womens health magazine and the results were surprising. >> ian is an expert and contributor to men's health and she is featured editor for women's health. >> good to see you guys. >> this is a nationwide survey. let's start with the first question. what to do if your partner is facebook friends with his or her ex. 56% say it's not a threat. 17% would ask their friend to defriend their ex, 6% would friend the ex themselves. >> which i love. i think people are too cavalier and they're saying it's not a big deal but we see it all the time. people rekindle these relationships. their relationships with their partners are getting stress tested and they reach out to an ex. i like that 6.5% said if you want to be a friend with my boyfriend or girlfriend, you're
9:33 am
going to be a friend of the relationship. >> that's a great point and i think that we find at women's health that people that spend a lot of time on social media, especially facebook have higher levels of jealousy in their relationship. a little bit, okay. but things can get rocky and you don't want to be obsessively checking out who they're friends with. >> i don't friend anybody on my facebook. >> nice guy. >> yeah, okay, what to do if your boss sends you inappropriate sexual text messages. a majority of participants said they would send a message back to their boss saying that's inappropriate. larger numbers said they would go directly to human resources to report it or ignore it completely. this is a tricky situation. a lot of people, if you report you could face consequences. if you don't report you're going to be dealing with an even worse situation. >> absolutely.
9:34 am
the number one thing to do is do not text or if there is more of them, save it. you want that record. we agree you want to go to hr. confronting the boss directly as you said could get a little sticky so you want to go to hr with the record so it doesn't become a he said, she said thing and make sure you understand your company's sexual harassment policy. could be a firing offense so you want to protect yourself. >> 7.6% said they would use it to climb the corporate ladder. >> yeah. >> wow. >> and more men said they would do that than women. >> oh. >> next question, what to do if you find out your partner snooped through your personal messages like texts, e-mails or facebook. 56% would want to get to the root of why their partner was snooping but 41% expressed genuine concern for their partner's distress. what do you think? >> this is an all too common
9:35 am
situation. we're all on our smartphones. we're texting, we're e-mailing. it's natural to want to know who are you talking to or writing with and if your response is not revealing that can breed suspicion which leads to snooping. this happens very often. >> how should it be handled? >> it's interesting, a small but significant percentage said i'll give my partner my password. i think in a loving, trusting, committed relationship you should have nothing to hide and the concept of snooping shouldn't even exist in the first place. >> right. >> and here's another one, what to do if you discover that your partner is sexting with someone else. 68% would confront their partner about. 32% wouldn't. 20% said they would just flat out leave their partner. that seems like a high number. >> well look. look at what we're seeing in the news with folks like anthony wiener.
9:36 am
in some ways, the whole thing is out of control. it's interesting that a lot of people said they wouldn't do anything which tells me that a lot of the texts are probably not as graphic but more in that middle zone of flirtation. and i think in the end we have to get some control of technology. i think it's really just advancing at such a rapid pace that it's really ahead of our relationships. >> but yet very much a part of it as we know so i would say, you know, what is the text? is it a little flirtatious or is it more x-rated. we want to talk about what is a sext and what is more harmless. >> and flirtation too. how much are you going to allow in your relationship. >> throughout this study we saw in any flirting scenario people are willing to allow a degree of flirtation. whether it's with a partner's best friend. >> the survey said 45% would confront their friend if their friend was flirting with their
9:37 am
boyfriend or girlfriend. 34% said they would let it go. >> yeah. >> thank you so much. >> thank you. >> coming up next, they're your best friends but do you really know what's going on with your dog? we'll ask the vet about common problems with your pooch. right after this.

else wearing the cape? >> well, i don't like it. first of all, it's terrible. no, i think it's great. i mean, i think he -- henry did a great job. those guys were fantastic filmmakers. ed snider and christopher nolan. they did a great job. it's a real different incarnation of the man of steel. not as much lovy dovy stof which we like. >> i like that. >> of course you did. >> i saw you on "kimmel" the other night. he had a little fun with you when it came to the new superman movie coming out. let's take a look. >> i didn't hear about the movie. i didn't hear they were doing it. >> there's a movie called "man of steel." >> thank you. nobody. >> there's someone else. there's a new superman. >> but -- i'm superman. who is he? >> well, i don't think we need to -- >> does he have to wear the red

10:04 am
to figure out how to create jobs right now. that is the biggest problem. and i think especially the men are seen as the leaders of this and so we need to figure out how to create education better so that we can solve this problem. thank you. >> thank you utah. thank you sweetheart. >> what was awkward about that? she was so pretty. did you see her? she was gorgeous. she smiled right in the middle of that. it was fine with me. >> every guy thought she was hot. >> i was fine with that. >> have you ever been in that situation? this happens to me sometimes even here on our show. i'm midsentence. i'm talking and honest to god, i can't remember what -- and i try so desperately to find it again. you know how you're trying to find the words. i think if i talk long enough will come back to me. >> you are a professional. if it happens to you. there's a lot of heat to step

10:07 am
money but the kid will have it when they turn 18 and could do something with it. >> there's a weird, gross disgusting trend out there. >> i thought it was something i just did. >> this is called -- it's gross -- eyeball licking. the story broke this weekend in japan. kids are licking each other's eyeballs. it's formally known as -- can you read that? >> worming? >> no. >> occulolincist. >> second base is something completely different. >> licking. that is so -- i guess a japanese band was doing it for a music video and kids watched it and thought how cool that is. >> i guess. that doesn't -- come here. >> this is your first brush with eyeball licking? >> ripley's believe it or not we
