6:00 pm
>> live from new york city. i'm tony harris. this is al jazeera america. coming up the government released new enrollment numbers for healthcare.gov , and the results underwhelm. almost a few week as survivors of typhoon haiyan need survival relief. >> it is another setback for president obama's signature
6:01 pm
legislative achievement. the numbers are not good. mike viqueira joins us from the white house, mike, you were telling us that the numbers were likely to be bad. how bad is it? >> it's worse than it was yesterday. it seems to be less than that. if you're counting the people who were trying to enroll through that healthcare.gov website. only 26,794 people, we'll call it 27,000, were able to register through those states. there were 36 states who declined to do this themselves. they're relying on the federal government to get them enrolled. all told, the rest of the states, had now who have their own website, the total is 106,185. when you consider the fact that ththe congressional budget offie
6:02 pm
project the number that would be enrolled in the first month, they're certainly falling short, and there is more trouble on the horizon. do you remember the president assigned a technology czar to straighten this whole thing out. they said the website would be up and running by the end of the month. they're slightly changing their pro direction on that. there is still trouble with these website and the figures lower than the administration, which has been lowering expectations for weeks. >> and mike, politically speaking, how is this being kicked around in washington? >> well, as you might imagine republicans have seized on this. there were a series of hearings today and more tomorrow. john boehner has called this a catastrophe and calling on the
6:03 pm
administration to scrap the whole thing. obviously that's not going to happen, and the promise that the president made repeatedly if you like your plan you can keep it, there is legislation pending on both sides of the capitol both house and senate calling for those, one estimate has 3.5 million people have been kicked off their plans because they don't measure up to the standards of the affordable care act. even democrats now joining in some of this legislation to have those people's plans reinstated. the white house is opposed to that, too. top white house officials will talk to all senate behind closed doors to explain it. >> the healthcare.gov website. the people in charge of fixing the website facing difficult questions from the house committee. we're joined with more, lisa, would you describe the mood of that hearing room, and how
6:04 pm
heated did some of the exchanges get there? >> it got a little testy at times. i have to say. not that they were questioning the witnesses but the republican and democratic lawmakers. the tone was set right off the bat. darrell isis saying that the bungle roll out was a monumental mistake. there were two technology officials on the stand today, and they were asked repeatedly after hundreds of millions of dollars and years of effort this launch was such a disaster? here is representative assa. >> only six people got to the end. i think for the american people understanding whatever the capacity is today, the capacity was insufficient on day one. isn't that correct? >> sir, just for accurate testimony. >> i just want to know on day one was the capacity sufficient. >> i can't speak to the numbers you were talking about, but clearly on day one, clearly on
6:05 pm
day one the system was overwhelmed by volume. >> reporter: that was todd park, the chief technology officer. he continued to insist today that around the clock efforts to fix this website are making a difference. park said that at this point about 20 to 25,000 people at a time should be able to use the website, and he insisted they're continuing to make gains every day. tony? >> so lisa, one of the other big issues as you know raised is the security of the website. what did is the administration saying about how secure the website is? >> reporter: there were reports today from the department of homeland security that there was at least one successful attempt to break into this website. of course there will be a lot of personal information there as people shop for their healthcare plans. the administration today up on capitol hill said that it does have security teams. they're testing the website fo r vulnerability, and they continue
6:06 pm
to do so on an on going base. >> we have breaking news out of southern california, four u.s. marines were killed at camp pendleton a short time ago. they died visit during an accident of training. they did not offer specifics. their identities have yet to be released, and we'll share it with you as soon as possible. the sun is rising on another day in the philippines, six days since typhoon haiyan hit. they're still without power and other essentials. we're joined now from cebu, one of the hardest hit areas, and craig, if you would, take a moment and describe the kind of international relief efforts you're witnessing there. >> well, the could go versus just gun to turn.
6:07 pm
>> it is good to talk to you. can i just ask you to describe you're on the ground there in cebu. you've heard some of the stories i'm sure of what the situation is like in tacloban. can you describe what you're hearing from your teams on the ground, and what the effort is like ahead of you? >> yes, we have teams across the area. we've been able to district resources.
6:08 pm
there has been a security incident, and things have really drawn down because of that insecurity. which is unfortunate. here on the island of cebu, in the northern tip of cebu, the damage hathedamage is not findie or relief. >> anand if you would, there has been a security incident. can you give us a sense of what has taken place. we know that desperation is really starting to set in here. we're talking about six days now, and people are in need of the bear essentials. we know at a certain point waiting for help is not good enough. so what is the isn't that you mentioned ago, what can you tell
6:09 pm
us about it? >> i understand that some prisoners have apparently escaped from a facility in tacloban, and created threats and created a security incident around the town. this, of course, extremely frightening for aid workers. i went to a place yesterday, and unfortunately going through stages of grief, but you know, i didn't feel threatened at all and it was quite possible to be doing work. so what i'm saying to you in different parts you have different situations. >> and if you would, describe what the challenges are in terms
6:10 pm
of logistics, and in terms of distribution of the supplies as they actually arrive in the ar area. >> i think logistics are largely the biggest challenge. many with pre-deployed in advance of the typhoon, it's sore whimmed with supplies. they're distributing or are distributing those. now they have to deal with large quantities. the port is only operating at minimal capacity, and their' still up loading effectively, and roots are extremely slow. it's just a huge challenge at
6:11 pm
the moment, and i really hope that the airport will be open for for all air traffic. >> ian, the ceo of plan international australia. i think we're going to try to get back to craig once again. we lost him. i thought we would give it a go. my apologies. as we learn more about the problems in the philippines americans have been opening up their wallets. >> reporter: at this recent fundraiser at a new york bar the money was flowing as freely as the drinks. the owner felt compelled to help the typhoon victims. he is from the philippines and he became homeless.
6:12 pm
>> i became homeless a year ago, and i know the deal. >> you want to donate something. you want to make sure that it's really going to be in good news. >> ultimately he chose the american red cross. after disasters donations typically swell and few are as generous as americans. in 2010 americans sent more than $1 billion to help haiti after the earthquake. >> hopefully this will help the people that really need the help. >> they took in less money than they sent. >> reporter: cautioning against some charities. his organization, charity navigator helps to weed out the good non-profitprofits from the. >> rightly, the public is concerned about leaders making too much money, and there are cases we've seen where it seems that the organization is more focused onlining the pockets of the leadership rather than doing public good. >> reporter: his website lists
6:13 pm
charities that promise to give 100% donations to victims. >> don't just use your heart and jump in. using your head and using data that will navigate you away from bad groups. >> reporter: having unrestricted funds, having people who donate to the organization allows us to be able to be responsive to such crises as the philippines, pakistan, and haiti. >> reporter: the philippines poses it's own challenges with charities. it's been long plagued with corruption. >> we do not trust the government. >> reporter: chris collected supplies in 2009 after a massive typhoon hit manila, but their shipping container of relief never got beyond the court. >> it was never handed out. all of those relief goods are stuck there because they charge us with fines, so we're not able to pay it. it's still stuck in the port. >> reporter: now her group, nafcon a filipino grassroots
6:14 pm
alliance now only sends money to groups she trusts. she said it was a hard lesson learning who to trust when you're focused on helping. >> reporter: jonathan betz, al jazeera, new york. >> good afternoon, i'm meteorologist kvin corriveau. we're looking at a lake-effect snow from yesterday, and it can an very particular thing. i put a pause on this because i wanted to explain it a little bit. you can see the streaks of know that is coming off lake eerie, and lake ontario. if it comes in this direction for too long we can get a significant accumulation like we saw in pennsylvania with nine inches of snow with these little trails coming in. what has happened over the last 4 hours, it's ended no more lake-effect snow for many people
6:15 pm
here. we're going to see really nice weather. what we're dealing with now is very cold temperatures in the southeast. atlanta right now at 59 degrees. very cold temperatures. that is the high pretty much the high for today. we are not far behind is birmingham, memphis is at 49 degrees as well. this means as we go to the overnight hours we're going to see freeze warnings across the coastal regions we're talking louisiana, arkansas, mississippi, alabama, georgia, carolinas, florida, and temperatures are going to get down around 24 degrees in some locations. i'll bring you more a little bit on in the show. >> still ahead on al jazeera america, a $142 million record payout for a single painting at auction, and it's a painting that one expert says isn't even a major work of art. >> reporter: i'm diane estherbrook in boston where a
6:16 pm
legendary mob boss got a dressing down from family members of his victims.
6:17 pm
6:18 pm
>> secretary of state john kerry was on capitol hill trying to convince senators not to impose new sanctions on iran during a closed door meeting kerry urged lawmakers to give more time to pursue diplomacy with iran. three students were shot at a local high school. no one was injurily injured and it might be related to a drug dispute that took place at the school a month ago. shots from outside of the school in the pittsburgh beach view area. he's one of the most talked about figures of all time. james whitey bulger chose not to
6:19 pm
speak at his sentencing hearing, but he did get an earful from families members of victims. diane estherbrook, tell us what happened today. >> reporter: it was very dramatic. you had these family members take on what had been the legendary the most feared monster in boston's history. he is now an 84-year-old elderly man. 13 people spoke, most of them were the children of his victims, and also very eloquently about what their lives have been like over the last 30 or 40 years without their parents. they were hoping to hear from whitey bulger. he had an opportunity to address the court. they were hoping to hear an apology or some sort of an explanation but they heard nothing. he declined to speak. and his attorney offered this explanation. >> from his perspective he did not receive a fair trial because he was not able to put forward
6:20 pm
everything that he could have told about the corruption and about the immunity agreement he had reached with the federal prosecutor. the trial became a sham in his mind as a result. he did not want to validate the trial by participating directly or indirectly through us in the sensing process. >> and the judge will hand down bulger's sentence tomorrow. >> diane, bulger is 84 years old. how much might that impact the sentence he receives? >> reporter: well, the mandatory sentence under federal guidelines is two consecutive life sentences plus five years. he's 84 years old, so the likelihood of him surviving in prison more than a decade is probably pretty slim.
6:21 pm
>> talk to us about the impact statements we know the family spoke, tell us more about that in the courtroom, those can be milehighly emotive. >> reporter: some of them were emotional, and some of them weren't. these crimes have occurred 30 and 40 years ago, so the loss has dissipated some, but there were emotional remarks made. there was one woman who was waiting for her father to take her to dinner when she was 11 years old. he called to say that he would be delayed, he was murdered that evening, and she never saw him again. there was one man talking about losing a father who he had never met. his father was killed right before he was born. very poignant, and very direct stay in the courtroom. >> diane, appreciate it. diane estherbrook for news
6:22 pm
boston, thank you. another confession from toronto's embattled mayor, he said that he bought illegal drugs. he admitted to smoking crack cocaine but only when a video surfaced showing him doing it. >> i'm not an alcoholic. i'm not a drug addict. have i drank? have i done drugs? yes, i have. i'll stay here and attend every executive meeting. i have not missed day down here and i have one of the best attendance record ever. i'll put my record against any else's. >> mayor ford said that he'll also run for re-election next year. it looks like there is no stopping stock. another record high. the third in the last four days.
6:23 pm
ali velshi will talk about that and other things. >> reporter: can we talk about my mayor instead? >> i was going to ask you. >> reporter: let me tell you, tony, i think you know i'm canadian. i'm from front. >> toronto. >> yes, i do. >> reporter: when i was younger you could not get a drink on a sunday, and now the mayor--more has changed there than any other place, and he is a representation of all that has changed. what has not changed are stock market records. there are some sign that says when tony and ali talk about the stock market every day one should be concerned. i talked about it yesterday on my show. i talked to you about it, and there are all sorts of people watching who are thinking, what am i supposed to do? that chubby bald guy is telling me not to buy stock, what am i supposed to do? we're going to talk about how to get into your 401k, and make
6:24 pm
changes so you're not a sucker and you get all this run up and when the market decides to turn south, you don't get caught holding an empty bag. that's the issue. what do you do? there is not enough to know that the stock market goes up every day. >> i'm assuming the advice isn't going to be take all of the money in the savings account, and find an account, a mutual funds somewhere--i'm assuming that's not going to be the advice. >> reporter: this is the important thing. for regular folks we tend to think of these things as on and off, sell or buy, but when in fact the best behavior is to be invested all the time. put it in a balanced base. if you have money to take out, take it out gradually. it's all about the pie chart, the portfolio. it's probably out of whack if you don't look at it very often. the number one piece of advice, one thing that people want to change in their 401ks and
6:25 pm
don't know how to do. log on. people don't even know what their password is. look. before you make changes just look. >> ali, i appreciate it, and i'm sure you've given that advice in five books that you've written now? >> reporter: two, but yes. >> oh, okay, we'll see you at the top of the hour. michael eaves is here with a look at the look at the sports headlines. >> reporter: there was a possibility of missing out on the first world cup since 1990. that was the possibility today for mexico. they hosted a match against new zealand and more than rose to the occasion. they'll go into next week's matchup with the team with the most total goals advanced to the world cup in 2014 in brazil.

6:28 pm
6:29 pm
>> welcome back to al jazeera america. here's a look at your top stories. we have some new information about those four marines who were killed at camp pendleton. according to the pentagon it happened as they took part of a drill at 11:00 a.m. pacific time. it happened in part of the base that is used for arrest til arty training. the pentagon said that they died because of an accident but did not release specifics. we'll have more on this story as information becomes available. the obama information has released new enrollment numbers for the online health insurance exchanges, and they're far off target. 106,000 poem signed up and fewer than 27,000 people managed to get insurance on the federal exchange. the white house expected 500,000
6:30 pm
enrollees by now. convicted crime convict, his job will announce his sentence tomorrow morning and at 84 years old he's likely to spend the rest of his life in prison. rescue workers are still trying to get clean water and food to isolated yours. the official death toll from the typhoon is now 2300. now while aid is slowly trying to trickle in, the government is truly to go deal with another problem. police and soldiers have been deployed around the disaster zone. they're trying to keep people from looting and digging up water pipes but as its reported now, another major crisis could be there.
6:31 pm
>> tired doctors and nurses take a rare break in the fresh air. most have been working long hours since the typhoon struck. inside there is no electricity and it's extremely hot. the storm destroy it's any power generator. >> the first floor is flooded so we have to bring the patients on the second floor. but the roof are all destroyed, when it rains it leaks, but it's the only available space to keep the patient dry and safe. >> reporter: a small donated generator is enough to power one light bullible in the operating theater which is in desperate need of clean. and tetanus shots are needed. despite the many challenges the hospital has not stopped taking patients. all things considered this small hospital is coping remarkably
6:32 pm
well. the concern is that the health situation could be about to get a lot worse. in many areas a clean up is far from beginning. debris lines the streets and in some cases the only place for a wash is the water in the harbor which is more polluted than ever. adding to that problem the many bodies floating in the ocean. the proper search mission to find the missing has only just started. survivors aren't getting the basic needs to stay healthy like food and water. >> for the next week we're expecting influx of patients with pneumonia. >> reporter: with the pain and misery there are good stories. babies born in the aftermath of haiyan are crammed into the hospital's chapel which has been transformed into a nursery. exhausted mothers and fathers reflect on their ordeal of liv living through the storm.
6:33 pm
>> but survive they did, and a few days later their baby was born. >> the white house brought together thousands of american indian leaders and federal officials, tribes have often been let down by the u.s. government through broken treaties and broken promises, frankly. but problem has set out to change that. libby casey was at the meet negotiation washington. showdowns us live. libby, why is this so significant? >> reporter: tony, it may sound simple. president obama hosts a tribal nations meeting every year, but it's revolutionary to what past administration asks. tribal leaders would feel ignored or harmed by the federal government. this is a chance for the leaders not just to hear from the president but to sit in the room with his cabinet, and discuss
6:34 pm
amendments that affect their lives. >> they came from as far away as alaska and hawai'i to not only be talked to, but to be heard. >> a lot ofs these policymakers don't know how we live, and what we have to live with. we live in third world conditions. as a tribal leader i wish to address those things. >> he said washington policies and outdated regulations often stand in the way of america's $5.2 million american defensive and alaskan natives, 29% live in poverty, nearly double the national rate. president obama promised to keep improving the lives of american indians. >> we need to expand opportunity for native americans. we created jobs, building new roads, high speed superintendent
6:35 pm
to connect communities to the broader economy. we made investment in tribal universities and but the fact is that native americans face poverty rates that are higher by far than the national average. we got to do better. >> reporter: even though the obama administration has spent five years trying to support indian country the across the board budget cuts known as sequestration hit tribes in many ways. they left alone medicaid and medicare but major overexcite it didn't exempt the departments that help american independence. >> for indian country these cuts mean 3,000 fewer inpatient admissions, and unconsciousbly 804,000 fewer outpatient visits for ihs patients. 804,000 trips that should be to the doctor or to see a nurse or to keep people healthy have been cut. we need your help to talk to
6:36 pm
congress. it's congress who have to take action on a realistic budget and getting rid of sequestration and avoid the next set of cuts having the same impact. >> the sequester should not affect indian country. we should be fully funded in this land. >> today we declare that we must never forget, we must never deny the injust that for decades upon decades was inflicted on native peoples, and we affirm that this painful past has informed and given rise to a sustained period of corporation and self determination. >> reporter: unless congress approves the funding for indian country for the federally
6:37 pm
recognized tribes all the plans may become further broken promises. president obama announced he'll take his first trip to indian country as commander in chief. did he visit the crow nation back when he was running for president. he was adopted by the nation and given the name as one who helps people across the land. tribal leaders say it's not just words or symbolism that is important, but it's action, and that's what they'll be watching for. >> libby casey for us in washington, d.c. libby thank you. one of the tribes not present was the upper madipani of virginia. that's because the federal government does not federally recognize it, but the tribes' leaders want to change that. >> the chief ken adams has disbelief as far as the federal government is concerned his
6:38 pm
tribe doesn't exist. >> the first people who met the british and the first colonies were established right in this area. they're not recognized by the federal government. it's sort of ironic that the people that came here and actually were supported by the native people to help the colony along initially, those people are not recognized by the federal government. and that's where the federal government actually began. >> reporter: in the 17th century the british acknowledged in maps and treaties, but chief adams has not been invited to the white house tribal nation's conference just 130 kilometers north of here at the white house. it's a matter of historical record that the ancestors inhabited this land between herring creek and the river for centuries. and yet up to this point it's proven impossible for the tribe to achieve federal recognition. federal recognition of the
6:39 pm
tribes' historical connection to the land and sovereign status is not a matter of receiving the financial assistance and protection that follows, it's a matter of principle. they were the last triba tribe o receive recognition. >> it's humiliating, it's de grading. it tears you apart. we pre-dated even the records here in this country. >> reporter: much of the ancestral land is no longer owned by the tribe. some 600 members are scattered throughout the state and the country. but chief adams, federal recognition is a way to holding onto the past and the future. >> people have a tendency to sort of drift away from the tribal focus, and drift into other areas of life. i think federal recognition would bring back a stronger sense of cohesion.
6:40 pm
>> reporter: among the first to be devastated by the bloodshed and disease that accompanied the european settlers yet here its members still stand no matter the opinion of the u.s. government. al jazeera, king william county, virginia. >> have a look, the art world has set a new record. the auction world has a record of the most expensive piece ever sold by an artist named francis bacon, who died in 1992. the piece went for $142 million at auction yet, tuesday, maria has our report. >> reporter: in just six minutes francis bacon's three studies of lucian freud became the most expensive art ever to be auctioned. >> solid at $142 million. >> reporter: it sold at just over $142 million including commission. >> this is incredibly rare.
6:41 pm
the previous record for a work of art was just over $100 million. for us to say $142 million is extraordinary. >> reporter: the three panel paint he is shows the dublin artist's friend lucian freud. it was never sold at action before. it's sale exceeded edward munch's the scream which went for $120 million last year, a hefty piece for whomever bought the piece. >> i don't think anybody would say that this particularly francis bacon from 1969 is a major important work of art, as one of the most important works ever. it's a very nice picture. it's big, splashy, golden looking. it's a perfect thing for a collect for have on their wall. >> reporter: the balloon dog fetched $58.4 million, a record for any work of a living artist.
6:42 pm
the jaw-dropping prices are evidence of the strong art market despite the weak economy. >> these objects are going for way more than they're worth culturally. but as far as we can see that public is still inflating and doesn't show any signs of stopping. >> reporter: the most expensive auction in history, al jazeera new york. >> all right, david shuster is here with a look at other stories making headlines. >> reporter: tony there were stunning images from iraq today and they don't involve car bombings or sectarian violence. via muslims are participating in a commemoration. they mark the ceremony where most pilgrims wear black, they chant and hit themselves. it's a traditional practice they carry out to symbolize
6:43 pm

6:44 pm
yes her underwear. prosecutors are not buying her story of being threatened, and are now threatening her with the death penalty. the sentencing phase could come in two weeks. >> this is crazy. we were talking about a story earlier, how does the mind work? it got us to breaking bad, didn't it? >> we were talking about this incredible show on tv that glamorized a crystal meth dealer. and then the next series of breaking bad maybe walt goes to indonesia and figures out a way to get out of the death penalty. >> this is where the mind takes you sometimes. thanksgiving, appreciate it, sir. sports is up next, and can you imagine a world cup without mexico? and saudi arabia's first female filmmaker.

6:46 pm
6:47 pm
>> i want to get this story in the last news hour but here it is. an iceberg at the southern tip of the world could cause headaches for some international shippers. british scientists say a giant chunk of ice that recently broke off from antarctica could pose a risk to cargo ships. it's bigger than the city of chicago. it broke off a glacier back in july and started floating out to the open ocean. one of the researchers say that the iceberg could drift between antarctica and south america which is a very busy area for shipping. and a ship hitting the iceberg would be an unusual incident.

6:50 pm
while it may seem foreign to many western viewers, they will see universal themes in her character's lives. >> i didn't want to make a film that complains about the situation as much as a film about how people can be happy, embrace a dream and change small things that add a lot of value to their lives. >> the film will not be watched in saudi cinemas because there are none. but the saudi government has shown support for wadja. it's been chosen as best foreign language film at the next academy awards. al jazeera, new york.
