7:18 am
left two to the right. contributing to the delay westbound georgia avenue. university slowing down our ride, colesville road headed in the direction of college park. this is 395 northbound as you work past duke up to king. that is a check of your fox 5 on time traffic. all right julie thank you very much. day 2 of metro's rush plus program it aims to ease crowding and improve commuter experience ahead of the silver line opening next year. how is it working so far? dan is the director of communications for metro he joins us live this morning from the plaza thanks for joining us. overall how did day one go? >> most customers knew about it and what to expect. we didn't see a lot of confusion especially during the
7:19 am
pm commute yesterday morning and didn't get too tripped up with the new destinations and routings for trains. >> there were some issues as you would expect on the first day of something like this. thousands of people riding particularly the orange and blue lines orange line trains we understand were pretty full by the time they got to courthouse and rossland and it was hard for people at those stations to get on. why do you thing that happened and how can that be alleviated? >> well, i was out at courthouse yesterday morning and really, it was a noticeable improvement over what you would have seen if you were there last week or prior to this. you know conditions at courthouse, that section between courthouse and rossland prior to rush plus is the busiest place on our system nowhere else were trains more packed than that segment, times customers couldn't get on the trains they were so full. the fact customers got on and in many cases were able to get a seat were improvement. >> so it was an improvement
7:20 am
from what you are used to at that stop. >> that's right. rush plus is meant to alleviating some crowding we saw and has a name called orange crush and that again is that very very crowded condition between courthouse and rossland. we have alleviated that priding three additional -- providing three additional trains every rush hour and we have converted some blue line trains to yellow line operating them over the bridge. >> conversion to blue line to yellow line trains means for those who ride the blue line longer waits for some of those trains right? >> that's correct. the trains now run every 6 minutes and then every third train there is a 12 minute gap between blue line trains and during that 12 minutes you will see three yellow line trains. what we have done for blue line customers the trip planner has schedule information it may be a matter of simply adjusting
7:21 am
your morning routine by 6 minutes on either side. that can make all the difference or if you miss one of those blue line trains and faced with a 12 minute wait it may be to your advantage to get on the next yellow line arriving train and transfer downtown, to make your connection. >> you guys making any tweaks to the program today to address concerns from yesterday? >> not at this point. this is the service chain was well accepted yesterday and trains went where they are supposed to go. it is an nagas to when you make a traffic -- analogous when you make a traffic change on the highway it takes a few days for human behaviour to catch up. we will give it a few days continue to support customers with additional staff to help them find their way and get used to the new pattern and see where we are next week. >> more people out there again for the rest of this week and then re-evaluate for next week.
7:22 am
>> that's right. >> director of communications thank you for joining us we appreciate it. >> you bet. as we continue here on fox 5 morning news, u vas interim president joins us live on the phone. we have been talking about him all morning long. it is will thomas can you hear us? >> hi how you doing? >> good. thank you sir for joining us. where were you when you received news you would become the interim president? >> i was in my hotel room in london. >> what were you doing there? >> i was in london with we have a group of commerce students here studying, and i was going to spend the day with them, and go to some of our corporate contacts here, and then tomorrow night we have a uva alumna event i was planning to attend to represent the university.
7:23 am
>> were you surprised, sir, they did name you as interim president? did your see this coming? >> um, they had asked me about it, last week, and we discussed it briefly when i was at home. >> let's talk about the campus now. many have described the uva campus currently, as a campus in chaos. what would you do now as interim president to turn things around there? >> well, the most important thing i can do is first i am going to fly home, and i am going to spend the next couple days meeting with as many people as i can. i understand the feelings that people are having, i have nothing but tremendous respect for president sullivan, i understand people are upset and have different views on the resignation but there is a mission to fulfill and the mission is we have to teach
7:24 am
students, conduct research, take care of patients, do all the things that made uva great. my goal is to meal with as many people as i can -- meet with as many people as i can i want to hear their concerns everything on their mind and then try to move through this, try to you know heal as much as i possibly can, the problems and rifts that have been created, and then frankly, i need everybody to pull together and help me, to move the university forward. we do face a lot of challenges. president sullivan knows that, the board knows that i know that we need to figure out the best way to move the university on so it will be not just a great but pre-eminent. >> but with all due respect the uva board of visitors ousted her after just two years on the job are you confident you will get the time to do what you need to do, to turn thingses
7:25 am
around? >> well, i am an interim president i am not a president and i am going to attack the job, with all the enthusiasm and determination and commitment that i can, but i think that the things that i will attempt to do are going to be involved primarily on the academic side of the house. we've got actually some very exciting plans under way i will work very closely with pro vest, john simon and we are going to proceed with ideas and plans we already have in the works and work closely with michael strine and people on the business finance side of the house to understand all the issues there and all i can do is work as hard as possible. >> sure. >> and the board will obviously, be looking for a permanent president. you know i hope they do so quickly and i expect they will
7:26 am
find an outstanding person, to take over you know hopefully, within a short period of time. >> my final question we often see boards donor fall searches in cases like this -- do national searches in cases like this. but do you not want to apply for the job? >> the job i have dean of the school of commerce is the job i love i am stepping in, to try to help the faculty and students and staff get through a tough time. but, i really hope that the university will conduct a thorough search and find some body t that will as i said earlier, really gain the confidence of everybody and lead the university to pre- eminence. >> uva interim president, you were kind to join us this morning safe travels as you make your way back to campus.
7:27 am
>> thank you very much. >> fox 5 morning news will continue after this  i'm drinking dunkin'. medium iced, cream and sugar. dunkin' iced all day long. dunkin' keeps me going. it gives me the boost i need. dunkin' iced keeps me moving and grooving.

"planned parenthood we'res gonna get rid of that." romney is saying he'll deny women the birth control and cancer screenings they depend on. when romney says "do i believe the supreme court should overturn roe v. wade? yes." he's saying he'll deny women the right to make their own medical decisions and when his campaign can't say whether he'd support equal pay protections. "and we'll get back to you on that." romney's putting your paycheck at risk. planned parenthood action fund is responsible for the content of this advertising because mitt romney is out of touch and wrong for women.

[ male announcer ] it started like this... i speak the language of business. i know how jobs are created. [ male announcer ] but it ended like this. one of the worst economic records in the country.
7:37 am
when mitt romney was governor, massachusetts lost 40,000 manufacturing jobs. a rate twice the national average. and fell to forty-seventh in job creation. fourth from the bottom. instead of hiring workers from his own state, romney outsourced call center jobs to india. he cut taxes for millionaires like himself... while raising them on the middle class... and left the state two point six billion deeper in debt. so now, when mitt romney talks about what he'd do as president... i know what it takes to create jobs. [ male announcer ] remember, we've heard it all before. i know how jobs are created. [ male announcer ] romney economics. it didn't work then, and it won't work now.
7:38 am
the cold war supposedly ended decades ago but russia is playing a role in the moody conflict in syria -- bloody conflict in syria. just one of the troubled spots in the middle east, jay jay green is keeping his eyes on the conflict he is a national security correspondent with wttop radio. thank you for joining us. news out this morning, u.s. and
7:39 am
russia,. well, what happened the president putin, sat down and talked about the violence thisn syria and president obama and russian prime minister putin said okay, look, we agree the violence has to stop but they didn't talk about what they disagreed, russia has been sending advicers to syria they are on the ground training syrians to use weapons including attack helicopters that have been sent there. and they have also been there, supposedly helping them to plan strategically what they will do as time presses forward and pressure on them gets more intense and this is what they didn't talk about. >> you would agree, that these weapons, helicopters are being used to attack civilians, women, children, children used as shields we have seen many
7:40 am
reports on this. >> no doubt about it. images, video bears it out and monitors from the un have seen it and in fact, have been victims of that pressure and intensity, that has been brought to bare on the syrian people from the air and on the ground as well. there is no doubt about it, the syrians are using this training and russia's help to oppress. as we go to video these are residential areas being devastated by the floody conflict, let me -- bloody conflict let me show you the g 20 summit in mexico president obama president putin if you read their body language jay jay look at this, it is icy at best. >> look the thing about this relationship the u.s. and russia are not on the same page on a lot of different things. and not the least of which is the u.s. is a super power russia is not a super power and some years ago before he died,
7:41 am
sergei t rechikov who defected, from the kgb said to me the russians, the cold war never ended they just lost their footing their platform their perch and they were looking for another way to assert themselves internationally. >> do you agree? that was my next question jay jay did the cold war really ever end? has russia just been quiet? >> i believe what sergei said and if you look at what you just asked, that body language look at what is going on in syria, look at the other areas around the world where the u.s. and russia disagree, yes, you know, there is some evidence that you know that kind of stance never changed but if you ask some experts today they will tell you, it is not the same kind of cold war. russia doesn't have the platform it used to have. it doesn't have the money it used to have and doesn't have
7:42 am
positioning but, it still has the capability to be obstructive and insert itself in parts of the world that it is not expedient for the u.s. for russia to be in the middle. >> based on your coverage do you think the u.s. will engage in military action or be forced to. secretary of defense, leon panetta said the u.s. would not send troops there unless the rest of the world, europe and nato were involved we don't see europe in that position having the resources or the disposition to get involved in syria at least in near term. >> we saw it in libya but apparently not in syria. thanks for coming in. >> thank you. >> tony over to you. picasso painting vandalized inside a gallery, caught on camera. how it was ruined ahead. >> before you apply for a new credit card how well does the company treat its customers up next the new website that will

8:16 am
interim president named at the university as some members to have governing board call for the former president theresa sullivan to stay on. he is the university's new leader, served four teams as dean of mcintyre school of commerce. we spoke with him this morning. >> and that people are upset and that people have different views on the resignation but there is you know a mission to fulfill and the mission is that we have to teach students, conduct research, take care of patients do all the things that made uva great. anita kumar one of several washington post reporters covering this story she joins us live via skype from richmond thanks for talking to us. hopefully you heard that clip there, with carl. he has been named the interim president already, a lot of people are coming out in
8:17 am
support of president sullivan, the fact that they have now moved on to an interim president does that suggest sullivan is out it is done or might she be able to come back? >> it is still unclear but obviously if they appoint a new president it seems unlikely at this point the board met for 12 hours yesterday obviously they were undecided about what to do there were members who wanted her to come back but did not have the votes. prior to this meeting we heard they had up to 8 members supporting her return, but she needed 9 and i think she would have wanted more to have that support before she would stay. >> can you put this in some perspective for us. what is going on there? she has not been accused of any wrong doing, any malfeasance or anything, i get the sense that you know, some people just feel like she wasn't moving fast enough to make some changes at uva is that what this is all about. >> exactly it.
8:18 am
when the ousting happened a week ago people were sure there was one incident or one scandal we would hear about but haven't and it does not sound like that is it. the board merely wanted her to move faster, make cuts to save money, to treat uva more like a business, than an academic institution and she had resisted that. why did she resign? i mean i understand, that one member of the board there had conservations with the other members and found out that okay, we can -- i've got enough votes here to get her out of here but why not go through the process, and see if they have enough to get her out. >> president sullivan gave a statement yesterday she mostly talked about her record at the university one can assume when the director, chairman of the board, approaches you and says i have 15 of 16 members who want to remove you she thought
8:19 am
for the institution and maybe herself why go through the public spectacle. no one could predict what would have happened over the last week because there was a public spectacle >> i want to ask, if college campuses are very political. are there any politics at play here whether it is campus politics with the board there has been some talk about half the board was appointed by bob mcdonald although the other half was appointed by tim cain any politics going on on campus there that resulted in all of this? >> i don't see anything thatis republican democratic politics the board was equally split but what we are seeing is sort of a greater issue happening across the united states which is you know, the problem with universities is they still want to be universities but all this financial pressure money is cut
8:20 am
back and so it is more of a business model versus academic model. >> now you mention the money is being cut back, some donors have said well, we might not give any more money or we will withhold money unless this is addressed and she is reinstated or looked at further, that is a lot of money could that have an impact. >> it could. i talked to several donors in the last few days we are talking multi million dollar donors, they have buildings named after them. a couple said they were very very concerned one who has given $60 million, she and her husband, said she would not -- she would withhold her money until changes are made on the board. >> we will see how it develops, anita reporting from richmond with the washington post thanks for joining us. >> thanks so much. >> 8:20 a.m. on tuesday, still ahead, microsoft looking to take a bite out of apples ipad success. a little later some of the best chefs in the district will

promotional video. the company ceo says it is part of a new family of devices they are creating less than a half inch thick and a kick stand to hold it up if you want to plus a key board built into the cover. the tablet should be available some time in the fall. we will talk more about it in the 9:00 a.m. hour. when they get so thin like that i am afraid i will break it easily. >> we will see. >> recent ad blitz to stop people from lighting up caught a lot of heat but appears those aggressive ads may be paying off. the fox medical team is here to explain just ahead. >> not guilty in roger clemens purgery trial. his defense lawyer joins us live this hour. time now 8:25 a.m. [ male announcer ] this was how my day began.

8:32 am
sticking in their minds. they are seeing relatively young people with consequences of smoking when you see that you remember it and they believe that keeps coming back and getting them to call the quit line. >> real quick, let's switch gears we all hate catching a cold this has been cold season a lot of people have been sick recently. these viruses may be helping us fight cancer how so? >> well, you know this is not the same virus that causes those symptoms, sneezing and coughing this is part of something called a rio virus, and row at that virus something that causes diarrhea symptoms is part of that family. these rye owe viruses don't cause symptoms or problems in adults however they some how selectively attack cancer cells they took ten people and infused them into their veins with this virus. these people went on to have surgery, they had colorectal
8:33 am
cancer, they looked at the cancer in the liver and they found, that actually the viruses had taken hold and they were replicating within the cells we know that what happens with viruses once they get into a cell they take it over make it into a little factory once they make enough viral cells it bursts open and kills the cell i believe the hope is these viruses will hunt down those cancer cells and kill them. >> what is next where are we at, in that stage? >> you know the good news it has already been used in humans we know it will probably get into more clinical trials who knows maybe they will be able to combine that virus with something else and give it a one two punch. i think long term the hope is, to treat cancer it may be something we do with multiple drugs multiple modalities and some day it will be like diabetes something we can treat and control. we can always hope. >> we can certainly hope that
8:34 am
is a good goal to have. dr. jo in florida thank you so much >> thank you. sarah that is fascinating. i know because as we know, cancer is such a major problem around the world, so anything they can do would be great. >> coming up roger clemens acquitted on all charges his lawyer joins us to talk about yesterday's decision. >> next hour rapper ice t will be here he has a new documentary hitting theatres. coming up 8:34 a.m. p 8:34 a.m.q

8:43 am
enough to the jury they would conclude the same thing. we talked to three of the 12 jurors they didn't believe him. >> can you tell us more. >> they said they didn't think he was worthy of belief they couldn't believe his stories collection of physical evidence, totally disregarded that, thought it was fabricated. >> why do you think mcnamee would go after clemens. >> we never had a good answer for that and i still don't, but, we can't always figure out, what makes some people, who are pathological liars, pathological liars. >> he is not here to defend himself you are the afence attorney. jason if you push back a minute let me show you what courtroom observers said when that was read, rusty harden went like this, sigh of relief? surprised at the verdict? maybe a little of both? >> big sigh of relief. you are always nervous, even though you think you know, it has come out the right way you thing the jury has been
8:44 am
convinced but you don't know until 12 people tell you. it is a big sigh of relief when it came back as quickly as it did they only deliberated 3.5 hours last wednesday and yesterday, 4. >> about 10 hours. >> even less than 10 hours that's right. so we didn't think that jury was going the find us guilty so we isn't lex which you wily thought he was going to be found not guilty but scared to death. >> you would agree, fierce as a pitcher outside the courthouse he was emotional. let me roll some of that sound now. >> all you media guys that know me and followed my career i put a lot of hard work into that career, and i appreciate my teammates that came in and all the e-mails and phone calls. what did he say to you? >> thank you. a million times, i love you, listen, the guy outside the courtroom that is who he is off the field.
8:45 am
on the field he is the fiercest competitor you will find but off the field he is a teddy bear. people don't believe it that was him. why he was so emotional, for four and a half years people believed he cheated. >> in the court of public opinion some say he is still at a loss he said himself when he testified to congress clemens said no matter whether we discuss here i am never going to get my name restored will he end up in the hall of fame? >> no idea. interesting thing about it, that has been more the media and sports question, roger has never talked about the hall of fame he never said privately he hoped to be there. if they put him in that is fine he deserves to be there but he will not lose sleep over that he wanted his reputation back how the public reacts to that, will depend on time. >> rusty harden, thanks for being our guest. >> sure. >> sarah to you. all right thank you so much will. well, the healthy baby project in the district, if you have not heard of it it works with
