7:00 am
good morning. breaking news. there are reports this morning that moammar gadhafi is dead. rebels claim this is a cell phone picture of the fallen libyan leader. we'll have the very latest in a live report. carnage in ohio. disturbing new images from the roundup of dangerous animals, all of them now accounted for, most of them unfortunately killed. why was a man convicted of cruelty to animals allowed to run a private zoo out of his own home? and thanks for nothing. the seattle waitress whose only tip from a customer was a note to lose a few pounds. she speaks out about it for the first time today, thursday, october 20th, 2011. captions paid for by nbc-universal television and welcome to "today" on
7:01 am
this thursday morning 6:00 on the west coast. >> i'm matt lauer. moammar gadhafi's more than 40-year rule came to an end back in august. it appears his life came to an end near his hometown of sirte. >> the region was seen as his last vestige of control. >> let us get right to the story. nbc's chief foreign affairs correspondent andrea mitchell has been following it. andrea, good morning to you. we know the rebels had been coordinating with yay t coordinating with nato officials trying to rid their country of gadhafi for a while. do we have any indication that nato or u.s. forces were involved? >> it appears nato forces may indeed have been involved. u.s. forces have not been involved in those actions at this stage. they were, of course, originally. u.s. officials, intelligence, state department, white house officials say while they have no official confirmation that they are prepared to announce, that
7:02 am
it does look promising that, in fact, moammar gadhafi is ted. they're not officially willing to say it. they want the libyans to say it first. they don't want to take the lead on this. they're not going to wait for dna evidence from the field, but they are waiting for a reliable source in the field in a position to know. and that is, of course, they have intelligence officials imbedded over there as well, matt. >> andrea mitchell on this story for us this morning. andrea, thank you very much. >> we've got nbc's adrian long on the ground in libya just outside of sirte. do we have clarity on what people are saying about how gadhafi would have died? in other words, did he die possibly in captivity if this report is confirmed? >> reporter: not much is clear here, actually, ann. what we do know is that the militiamen who stopped to talk to us have said gadhafi was killed while he was being captured. he was shot either in the neck or in the head. a number of these forces have had cell phone video that they've showed us, footage
7:03 am
clearly showing a man sometimes shirtless with a white sheet wrapped around his head, quite bloody, being put into a vehicle of some sort. we haven't been able to confirm, of course, as andrea mitchell said, whether or not this is actually moammar gadhafi. >> that was adrian long. we're losing our signal. to jim miklaszewski at the pentagon. you've got new information. >> there are serious questions about exactly how moammar gadhafi was killed if, indeed, he was. all appearances now are that, in fact, the former libyan leader is dead. now, nato did acknowledge that they did launch an airstrike today against a convoy that was fleeing sirte. but in the latest video of what is purported to be gadhafi's body that appeared on al jazeera tv, you see rebels roll a body over, that of moammar gadhafi, they claim, and there are clearly gunshot wounds to the back of the head.
7:04 am
there are also reports from some of the rebels that he was hiding in a large drainage ditch and that he had to be dragged out of it. it appears that he was summarily executed by the rebels themselves. all of this, of course, is still not confirmed by the u.s. although u.s. officials say it's looking pretty good that gadhafi is, in fact, dead. >> jim miklaszewski, thank you so much. here's matt. >> nbc's chief foreign correspondent richard engel spent a lot of time in libya during the initial uprising. he's in new york this morning. you've been getting reports, confirmation from inside the rebel camp. do you go with what mick is telling us now? >> i'm hearing a similar version of events from multiple rebel sources inside libya. they are saying that gadhafi was captured. he was captured initially alive. he was hiding in a drainage ditch. that, yes, there was a nato airstrike on vehicles that were in the sirte area this morning,
7:05 am
but that wasn't the airstrike that killed him. there are now photographs and video that show what appears to be gadhafi's body. >> all right. but we've been hearing from rebel leaders that all along they intended to give moammar gadhafi a fair trial in their country. if this course of events holds up, what's the reaction going to be around the world is this. >> well, it doesn't appear that that is what happened. that they didn't -- they didn't capture him and keep him alive. i've seen the video as well. in this video, a body is rolled over. there are what seem to be gunshot wounds to the back of the head. also indicating execution. the reaction internationally will probably be one of, well, the rebels got emotional and they killed him on the ground. this wasn't a premeditated execution. that the people who found him couldn't really contain themselves. i don't know if there's going to be a big international outcry. >> you look at the circumstances not of the if, in fact, he was executed but in where he was found. you think back to when saddam
7:06 am
hussein was found cowering in a hole not far from his hometown. these are people accused of brutalizing their own. they came to very difficult ends. >> amazingly, both returned to their hometowns. gadhafi went back to sirte. saddam hussein went back to his home village, was living in a very humble farmhouse. was inside that farmhouse in iraq. it was very basic. this is a person who lived in palaces. gadhafi, the same way. his palaces now been destroyed by rebels in tripoli and hiding in some sort of drainage ditch and executed by the people who were in the opposition. >> quickly if you will, secretary of state clinton was in libya not long ago pledging support for the liberation of that country. what's the path forward now between our countries? >> the relations between the rebel movement and the united states are very close. the rebels are probably the most pro-american group in the entire middle east. they want to have business deals with the united states.
7:07 am
they want to engage in oil contracts. so that i don't see being a snag. >> richard engel, thanks very much. we now apparently have some cell phone video that has just come out to us. this is from the scene in sirte where apparentlyoammar gadhafi waar killed. we're going to watch this now. i'm seeing this for the first time with you. richard and ann, don't be afraid to chime in here. it appears to be after he was killed. we're looking at the body being carried by rebels and, perhaps, put into that truck. >> it gets more graphic after that. that is exactly the same video that is circulating that adrian was talking about. that's the video that apparently shows gadhafi's body in rebel hands. >> the spokesman for the interim government has said, quote, a new libya is born today. this is a day of new liberation. we were serious about giving him a fair trial. it seems god has some other
7:08 am
wish. thank you, richard, for your reporting on this. much more. let's turn to the news at home. police in ohio have now completed their roundup of the dozens o f dangerous animals freed from a preserve on tuesday. nearly all of them were killed. nbc's stephanie gosk has this story in zanesville, this morning. >> the sheriff here just completed a press conference. he confirmed terry thompson, the results of his autopsy, that he was killed by a self-inflicted shotgun wound to the head. he also said that moments afterwards, he was bitten by one of the large cats. they say all 56 animals have been accounted for. 50 of those animals are dead. you know, there was shock in this town that there were so many animals being kept on that compound. but exotic pets are on the rise across the country. just a bit of a warning, there are some graphic images in this piece. the warnings went out early. big, wild animals that have no business roaming rural ohio were
7:09 am
on the loose. >> that is a bear. >> reporter: the 911 dispatch in zanesville started getting some unusual calls. >> yeah, there's a lion on mount perry road. >> i'm pretty sure i just saw a wolf. >> we live next to terry thompson, and there is a bear and a lion out. >> reporter: police say just before he took his own life, terry thompson set more than 50 animals from his private zoo free. to protect the small town, the sheriff and his deputies, armed with assault rifles, killed almost all of them, leaving behind disturbing images of carnage. >> mountain lions and african lions and, i think, three bears. one of the bears charged a deputy and the deputy shot it. >> we don't go to the academy and get trained on how to deal with 300-pound bengal tigers. >> reporter: the dead animals are all being buried at the farm. only six were tranquilized and brought to the local zoo. >> because it's a tragedy for the animal world. it's what it is. it could have been a bigger tragedy for the human world. that's what we tried to avoid here. >> reporter: bengal tigers,
7:10 am
lions, bears, exotic animals like these are easier to get than ever before. most can be bought online for very little money. this website lists 600 different animals for sale. >> in the united states today there are thousands of people who keep exotic animals as pets. globally the market trade of creatures is a $20 billion a year industry. >> reporter: most states either ban or heavily regulate exotic pets, but the humane society says 12 states have almost no regulations at all, including ohio. a new documentary shot in ohio takes a look at the lure of exotic pets, and the danger. >> you can buy a tiger but you can't buy common sense. >> reporter: the film profiles a police officer whose friend was mauled by a pet bear and a lion owner struggling to handle his beloved cats. >> when you look at both of those, when it comes to raising exotic animals as pets,
7:11 am
especially with people who have very limited experience with it, you get the overall feeling that this isn't going to work out well. >> reporter: in zanesville it didn't. the police prevented a human tragedy, but at a very high price. later on today, ohio governor john kasich is going to give a press conference. he is under intense pressure to change the law here in ohio. his office has been re-evaluating a proposed ban on exotic pets that would have prevented this incident. ann? >> stephanie gosk this morning, stephanie, thank you. >> as we preserve your voice, let's head over to the news desk. natalie's standing by with all the headlines. secretary of state hillary clinton is taking a tough stance in kabul this morning as part of what she's calling a, quote, reality check. clinton met with afghan president hamid ka zi this morning and urged him to strengthen anti-terrorism ties with pakistan and press forward
7:12 am
with talks. clinton told karzai about a gaffe from gop presidential hopeful herman cain. >> one of the republican candidates. i think it was herman cain. former pizza company executive. >> is he that? >> he started something called godfather's pizza. the president was saying he saw a news clip of mr. cain, i don't know the names of all these presidents of all these countries. whatever places. >> secretary clinton heads to pakistan tonight. meantime, many americans who plan on voting republican in 2012 haven't found a candidate they prefer over our current president. that's according to to a new poll from the associated press. even without a clear preference for an opponent, about half of all voters surveyed say president obama does not deserve to be re-elected next year. now let's head to wall street.
7:13 am
melissa francis at cnbc's world headquarters for us. >> we've got a slew of economic data in the last few minutes giving the market a little bit of a bounce here. watching events in europe really closely as well. the misery index, though, rising to a 28-year high. you get that by calculating unemployment and adding it to inflation. also, we saw medium incomes fall back to the same level they were at in 1999 on an inflation-adjusted basis, this according to the social security administration. half of americans made less than $27,000 last year. natalie, it's tough out there. back to you. >> pretty miserable. thank you so much, melissa francis. it was a chilly night at the old ball game as the st. louis cardinals won on their home turf, beating the texas rangers, 3-2, in the world series opener. american idol winner scotty mccreary sang "the national anthem" and first lady michelle obama was there and said she was making her husband jealous by getting to attend the game. lucky her. it's a girl for french president nicolas sarkozy and
7:14 am
karla bruni. sarkozy was seen entering the private clinic where the first lady of france gave birth on wednesday. sarkozy says his wife and child are doing well and that they feel a very profound happiness. but he did not reveal the baby's name. it is the first time in modern french history that the child has been born to a sitting president. congratulations to them. it is 7:14 pacific time. back over to matt, ann and al. i guess he wants to wait for carla bruni to announce the name officially. >> she went through the labor. let her say the name. right? >> right. >> yes. i was thinking lauren bacall. >> let's show you what's happening out west. we've got just gorgeous weather. a few showers in seattle. 60 degrees where kathie lee and hoda will be later on this morning. we're looking at medford, oregon, plenty of sunshine. 71 in l.a. morning fog will burn off to a
7:15 am
lovely day. 66 in denver. should say in salt lake. let's take a look at the rest of the country. wet, windy day around chicago on into new england. plenty of sunshine along the mid-atlantic and southeastern atlantic states. breezy there as well. plenty of sunshine from texas all the good thursday morning toyou. we have thick fog in the north bay. less than a quarter mile visibility in portions of santa rosa. we'll see a nice second half of the day. full sunshine in san jose. 75. 67 in san francisco. if that's too cool for you, the good news is the gradual warmup continues well into your weekend. a couple of nice beach days. 83 on monday. that's your latest weather. matt? >> thank you very much. lindsay lohan is out on bail this morning after being led
7:16 am
away from court in handcuffs on wednesday. >> reporter: lindsay lohan wasn't in custody long. in a matter of minutes she was able to make bail set at $100,000. as a matter of fact, she's expected to show up here at the l.a. county coroner's office at any moment to perform community service. her court appearance here will follow a testy one yesterday. lindsay lohan led away in handcuffs yet again president another mugshot to accompany a growing portfolio. >> probation is a gift. it's a gift. it's not a right. >> reporter: before the starlet was carted away, a tongue lashing that lasted nearly an hour. >> she failed to show for nine appointments. >> reporter: lindsay lohan blasted by the judge for being terminated from community service at a los angeles women's center because of excessive absences.
7:17 am
>> she needed to get off the stick, start doing that community service. >> reporter: prosecutors wanted lohan behind bars. >> we are requesting that jail time be imposed for her actions. >> reporter: after the judge revoked lohan's probation, she was led away by bailiffs. but the actress posted bail before she could be taken to county jail. her bail bondsman waiting at the courthouse. the judge's reaction? what a surprise. in april, lohan was given one year to complete 480 hours of community service. probation for a 2007 drunk driving case, and misdemeanor theft case from earlier this year. but the judge said the actress has been a no show at the women's center. in court the judge read from lohan's probation report. >> ms. lohan indicates that at the women's center she wasn't interacting with anyone so the service was not fulfilling. her words. the service -- is that what a sentence is about? >> reporter: the judge pointed out lohan somehow found time to go to europe where she was seen partying in paris and modeled
7:18 am
for a photo shoot in italy. >> her opportunities are not in this country. >> reporter: lohan's lawyer fired back saying lindsay cleared her time away from the women's center first. >> and her traveling to europe was not to have fun. it was to make money, to support herself and support her family. >> reporter: known for making a fashion statement in court, on wednesday lohan was also hammered online for her makeup choice. >> she sort of had clown red circles on her cheeks that made her face look puffy and misshapen. >> reporter: while the starlet has been cuffed and avoided jail her next stop is the county morgue. out on bail, lohan is expected to show up here at the coroner's office by 8:00 a.m. she'll be back in court for that probation hearing in two weeks. even the judge admits it's highly unlikely for lohan to do any jail time because california jails and prisons are so overcrowded. matt? >> all right. miguel almaguer, thanks so much. it's now 18 after the hour out
7:19 am
on the pacific coast. here's ann. >> thank you. kate middleton may be heeding a hectic schedule. it didn't keep her from delivering a very personal message to one young fan. nbc's michelle kosinski is in london to explain. good morning. >> hi there, ann. we recently saw the duke and duchess of cambridge visit a cancer hospital for children, literally following in the footsteps of princess diana. they seemed to try to make this more than an appearance, spending a lot of tile. kate told one child if you ever need anything, contact us directly which made the little boy laugh. now in what may be her first personal act of public kindness at princess, she's written a heartfelt letter to a 9-year-old boy there. if you ever thought william and kate simply show up and do their duty at these packed events this visit to a children's cancer hospital last month showed something else. >> make sure you get it, all right? >> reporter: talking to each child at length.
7:20 am
the look on kate's face seemed to say what words could not. here with 9-year-old fabian bates, diagnosed with lieu keeu at age 5, and just relapsed. >> it's very encouraging for us that we had that focus. it just took our minds off of everything else. interesting that week we had just heard about his need for a bone marrow transplant. >> i gave her one of these. it's like a bookmark which has my website on the back. she said she promised that she'd go on my blog. >> reporter: and then another surprise. >> the royal postmark so we knew it was a genuine thing. and this is the letter. >> reporter: addressed to fabian on the duchess's stationary. >> i very much enjoyed meeting you.
7:21 am
i was so touched by your strength. i will keep my fingers crossed. i will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers. >> reporter: signed simply catherine. >> she really is beautiful but it was really her character and it showed through her eyes. i think, you know, she genuinely was moved. >> reporter: kate is making charity her hallmark. this past weekend at st. james palace in glowing red she and william helped raise a million dollars for a child bereavement fund and fabian got some more good news recently. both of his sisters are bone marrow matches for him. they say they have kate's thoughtful words of hope to hold on to. >> reporter: lately william and catherine have been described as
7:22 am
genuine, compassionate, approachable, which is basically a dream come true for the royal family moving forward. ann? >> our best wishes to fab yan, meantime. just ahead, why did police take x-rays during an extensive day-long search of the home of that missing kansas city baby? a private investigator working with the family speaks out. but first, this is "today" on nbc.

7:30 am
7:30 on a thursday morning, the 20th of october, 2011. the month flying by. a bit of an overcast start to the day here in the northeast. al says, here's the good news though. it should clear up nicely just in time for a big concert on the plaza tomorrow morning. one of the hottest acts in music, cold play, taking over our 8:30 half hour tomorrow. we look forward to that. if you're in the area come on down and get a seat early or standing place early. inside the studio i'm matt lauer alongside ann curry. just ahead, if you've ever waited tables, you know it can be a very difficult job. you also know how aggravating it can be to get a bad tip. well, someone in a seattle restaurant gave a waitress nothing more than a note. on the note it said, "lose a few pounds." she didn't find that funny at all. we're going to hear from her, coming up. >> she's got a lot to say. also coming up this morning a pregnant woman diagnosed with terminal cancer was faced with an agonizing choice -- chemo to
7:31 am
save her own life or forego treatment so that her unborn child could survive. coming up, that woman's family speaking out. very emotional decision, matt. on a much, much different note could you imagine visiting a real life jurrasaic park? wait until you hear just how close scientists think they are to cloning the long extinct woolly mammoth. that would be cool. >> no kidding. we begin now with the search warrant executed at the home of missing kansas city baby lisa irwin. in a moment we'll talk to the private investigator now working with the irwin family, but first nbc's peter alexander is in kansas city with the details. peter, good morning. >> reporter: ann, good morning to you. investigators returned to the same play where they started, the home of baby lisa irwin. this was an exhaustive serge. it didn't end until just before 1:00 in the morning. 6 ho 16 hours they were on site.
7:32 am
their marathon search lasted late into the night. crime scene investigators dressed in sterile white suits testing, analyzing, combing every inch of the irwin family home for any sign of baby lisa. technicians carried away what appeared to be x-ray film to be examined inside bomb and arson trucks on site. all day long with shovels and rakes, crews scoured the property. at times seen digging and prodding behind a shed in the backyard. nearby, detectives searched the roof and gutters, even the bird feeder for hidden clues. investigators collected bags of potential evidence. they've been here before at least seven separate times, to the house where lisa's parents say their baby daughter disappeared october 4th. so why now and why this time armed with a search warrant? >> law enforcement is responding i think in part to the fact that the family now is represented by counsel. so i think that they're matching
7:33 am
strategies with the family. >> reporter: neither the fbi nor kansas city police would reveal exactly what they were looking for. still, it seems clear authorities suspect the irwin family home holds secrets to this baffling mystery. now more than two and a half weeks old. >> these investigators have developed new information, new leads that tell them there is evidence inside that home that they had not looked for or found on prior searches. >> reporter: baby lisa's parents deborah bradley and jeremy irwin insist their child was abducted and told nbc news on sunday they fear someone was scouting out their home. what do you guys think happened to lisa? >> somebody watched us. somebody waited. i don't know for how long. >> reporter: for now deborah and jeremy are staying with relatives and say they're praying for their daughter's safe return. will you ever move back into the home?
7:34 am
>> i don't want to move back unless i have her. it's not the same. >> reporter: rereached out to the attorney for layby lisa's parents in new york who gave us this statement, staying i don't know why a warrant is needed. they can go in and out as any time. they have had unfettered access because we want answers. we asked investigators exactly what they found, ann, and they wouldn't tell us. we're still waiting for those answers as well. >> peter alexander, thank you. bill stanton is a private investigatorend of lisa's family. good morning. >> good morning. >> why the x-rays? are they possibly not just looking for evidence but possibly for baby lisa herself? >> absolutely. they are probably looking for multiple things -- dna, potentially if she was buried under the house, etcetera. >> and this idea that a bomb and arson truck were brought in even though there is no evidence of explosives in the house, what is your response to that? what is your assessment of that? >> i'll just take a guess. maybe there is a component of that bomb truck where they could search for vapors maybe of a deceased body.
7:35 am
>> are they show boating, the police? >> i would never say that against a police department. >> are they doing a good job? >> from my optic, yes, they are. >> so if they're doing such a good job why are your services required? >> because i'm putting a different set of eyes on it. i'm not going over their homework. i'm doing a parallel but different course. >> you're saying you're an independent investigator and as i just mentioned you're hired by a friend of lisa's family. can you tell us something about who hired you so we understand whether you are in fact truly independent? >> absolutely. it is important to note, and an important distinction to make. while i'm working with the family i'm not working for the family. this benefactor, the directive we spoke of was find the baby and take the truth wherever it goes. if that truth leads me to their guilt, so be it. >> okay. so then this person who is paying your bills, does that person have power over when and whether you release information? >> oh, no. absolutely not. any and all information that i get is a one way street. i give it directly to the kansas
7:36 am
city police department. i don't ask for anything in return. i give it over good, bad, or ugly. remember, i do have access to the family. when i went to them and i told them if you're guilty i will look to have you arrested, they said, no problem. they said, whatever you need. that did impress me. >> if you do have information, that they are either guilty or if you have information that a kidnapper took this baby, then you have a -- do you feel you have a moral obligation not to talk to -- not to wait but rather go directly to the police? >> we're not waiting at all. who are you going to go to? the police or the person who pays your salary? >> yes. we have a pipeline. there is a contact number. i have news for you. we are giving all the information -- we're not even necessarily giving the family the information that we get. >> so meantime what is your current theory? >> my current theory is at this time i am looking outside the home because everybody is saying the family did it and i am absolutely looking at them but then you tell me how they did
7:37 am
it. did she drive? did he do it? did she do it? did she walk and take the baby and dispose of the baby? that's the tough question. so when you eliminate those, then you have to entertain the idea that someone came from outside the home. look at the phone records. get blood hounds to follow her scent in case she took that baby and hid it somewhere by foot. go over all of those variables. look at that real hard. then if it's not coming up, that is they did it, then you have to look outside the home. >> right. exactly. you seem to be indicating that they would have to be very good criminals if the parents actual di it. >> you make a good point. they would have to be master criminals. >> why? >> because it's virtually a perfect crime. there is nothing leading you. look at the timeline. you look at what happened. she was sleeping in the bed with her boy. so now you can't wake up the kids. you have to i would assume this was done by accident if she did, let's say she shook the baby or over medicated the baby. she had the timeline between let's say 10:30 and 3:45.
7:38 am

waitress understandably upset over a customer's tip. someone left her not money but unwanted advice to, quote, lose a few pounds. now that woman is speaking out. nbc's amy robach is in seattle with the details. good morning. >> reporter: good morning you to. when i caught up with victoria liss she was on a day off from her waitressing and bartending job at a popular seattle restaurant and with all the furor the story has created over the past few days that day off couldn't have come soon enough. the late night crowd at biomedical bowbimbo's can sometimes be demanding but according to victoria liss the couple sitting at her table on a bus fredi night was downright rude. >> him and his girlfriend were eating their food and they picked up this taco they ordered and it had an extra layer of beans on it and they were just pointing and waving in my face like this taco is carb hell. >> you were considering kicking them out of the bar. >> yeah, i was. >> reporter: after the couple closed their tab with a credit card, victoria looked at the
7:44 am
receipt. the man had left a terrible tip, no money, just some handwritten advice about losing weight. >> reporter: what did it say? >> it said, "you could stand to lose a few pounds" and "lose" was spelled incorrectly just to prove how intelligent they were. >> reporter: and to prove how angry she was over being insulted and stiffed victoria went on facebook and tried to give the male customer a piece of her mind. >> as a feminist i think it's completely uncalled for for a man to, when he's mad at a woman just pick her apart physically. >> reporter: bloggers picked up on the incident and the story went viral. they're even talking about it in taiwan. >> it is never appropriate to write something unkind on the bottom of the credit card slip. >> reporter: days after all the attention about victoria's terrible tip an online review from an unidentified person certainly seemed to describe the night in question. he wrote in part, "my girlfriend
7:45 am
and i had without question the worst restaurant/bar experience of our lives. the woman who was supposed to be serving us seemingly ignored us for 25 minutes." according to the reviewer they were served double decker tacos which they didn't order. when they asked for regular tacos, the reviewer says the waitress countered with some snarky comment about, you could use a little weight. for her part, victoria claims that's not what happened. >> i didn't do anything to offend this person and i don't know why they had to pick apart my physical appearance for it. >> reporter: now, victoria goes back to work tonight. in fact, she's been back to work since this all unfolded and she says it's created some tension among her co-workers, some who believe she should have not have taken this to facebook. that, unfortunately, rude behavior from customers is all in a day's work. matt, back to you. >> amy robach out in seattle for us this morning, thank you very much. coming up next, how would you like to walk alongside a woolly mammoth?

that. >> i bet she is. i'm sure you're very busy tending to her. she described you as her rock. but it's really hard to watch someone you love go through cancer. and there is a toll on you even though you're the one trying to take care of the person who's suffering. the emotions must be pretty tough here for you. >> well, you know, juliana has had a tough year and a half. i just, between the ibf attempts and now with this. for me i wish i could carry some of the load, take some of the pain away and watching the ivs go in her arm and getting, watching her being wheeled into that operating room was heart breaking for me. so i'm just doing everything i can to support her and make sure she's comfortable and try to make her laugh as often as possible. >> the doctors, what are they saying was the prognosis? you did catch it early. >> yeah. we're viewing this as a gift. it was caught accidently, very, very early. and we're going back tomorrow to the doctor to make sure that the

lymph nodes, they had to remove a couple lymph nodes and we hope we get a good report tomorrow, god willing, and then it's radiation and then we kick off 2012 with a new outlook on life and we're ready to take on the world. she's excited. she's going to go back to work next week, god willing, and she's really viewing life a little bit differently. it's funny when you go through a situation like this it kind of turns the volume down on the things that aren't really that important. >> that's absolutely right. i know that you mentioned earlier the response online on twitter, so many people wishing her well and i know that you're going to have a lot to say to this baby that you're going to have eventually. >> well, indeed. that baby not only will have saved juliana's life but the amount of tweets we've been getting from women and men saying they've scheduled their first mammogram or their wife has scheduled her first mammogram is really remarkable. that was the goal of this. >> all right. bill, thyou sohe good mornin

8:39 am
>> i love that music. we're back at 8:39. this morning on today's consumer how good is your dish washing detergent? consumer correspondent janice lieberman is here with details. >> good morning. if you've noticed your dishes are dull and your glasses cloudy it may not be the fault of your dish washer because about a year ago detergent makers removed phosphates from their products to help save the environment. so the ingredients changed and so may have their performance. good housekeeping magazine is out with their top picks of soaps that sparkle. we decided to see how they tackle that dirty job. who doesn't want their dishes to sparkle?
8:40 am
finding the best soap to do the job isn't all that easy since phosphates have been removed from dish detergents. some experts say cleaning dishes has not been the same. caroline forte, director of the home and cleaning lab at the good housekeeping research institute took us behind the scenes as they tested 35 dishwasher detergents. >> yes. >> you have some really nasty looking stuff here. >> we do. >> reporter: they came up with their top five picks. but before we reveal them, you need to see how tough it is to become a clean winner. >> we want to make sure our tests are really tough so we can discriminate between the different brands we're testing. >> reporter: most of us wouldn't dream of loading our dishwashers covered with food. baked on egg yolk. burnt milk. mac and cheese. caked on oatmeal. fried burger residue and greasy margarine.
8:41 am
>> what's on this? >> this is our, what we call our spinach smear. it is a combination of spinach, green beans, crisco and mayonnaise. when we finish soiling everything we let it sit or bake on for two hours. after that two-hour period we load up the dishwasher and run the cycle. >> she asked me to plant a wet one. >> most of the detergents really struggled with the lip stick. >> okay. >> fill the cups with coffee to put the stain on and then blot each rim with a paper towel. that's how we get it on and make it very precise. >> here is how i would do it. there you go. >> give us a hand. >> the kiss test. >> reporter: they used hard water which contains minerals to up the ante for the test. and surprisingly did not rinse any dishes at all. before long, we were ready to start. caroline chose the pots and pans cycle. >> it's generally a longer cycle. the water temperature gets up to a higher temperature and also you get a much stronger wash action. so you want to make sure you choose the right cycle. it really does make a difference. >> reporter: after a few hours of washing and a heated dry, we were ready for the result.
8:42 am
>> look. >> reporter: very clean. lip stick gone. >> it did a great job. >> reporter: just two items had minimal soil on them. >> none of the 35 detergents we tested got everything absolutely clean. >> reporter: really impressive. and finally the winners. among the best in tablets? finish quantum. cascade's complete pack. and mrs. meyer's clean day pack. lovely. >> they have basil, lavender and even lemon. >> reporter: cascade complete gel was a glass and flatware favorite and the best bargain for your buck at ten cents a wash, walmart's great value powder. and here are some other tips that may help get your load cleaner. make sure your tap water is hot before you turn on your dishwasher. use more soap if you have hard water and the key is to loading the dishwasher correctly. >> okay. how do you load it correctly? >> let me show you. first of all, don't overload. >> and also no -- open the dishwasher. >> and have everything face the jets, the water jets coming in
8:43 am
which i didn't know which makes a lot of sense. if you're not sure where that is read the manual. >> also a simple trick if you've got film on your dishes, i always think it's some of the chemicals that you're washing with, the dishwasher material. >> i don't know where it's from but to clean it all out use a little vinegar in the cycle with water. it'll clean them and make your glasses sparkly clean. if you have hard water use a little borax to help clean it out. these are great tips. >> janice, thanks so much. now here's al. >> ann, thanks so much. this morning on today's kitchen step by step we're cooking with squash. here with warm and flavorful dishes is the chef and owner of kelly leichen's restaurant in vail, colorado. >> squash not only looks good and tastes good, it's good for you. >> it's good for you. winter squash is the perfect way to get health in there.
8:44 am
use it all winter long. >> start with an acorn squash? >> start with an acorn squash. we'll make a rum spiked -- this may be tough to cut. rum spiked acorn squash soup. cut our acorn squash in half. take out all the seeds. drizzle it with a little bit of oil, salt and pepper. we're simply going to roast it as you see we've done here. 350 degrees for about 30 minutes. >> watwater? >> absolutely not. face up. when it comes out, onion, garlic, carrots. nice aeromatics with fresh thyme. so easy. a perfect hearty soup. a great entree for a warm, winter night. if you want to help me out we can scoop a little of that right into the pan. i have some already scooped here. you can see just how easy this is. >> just like that.
8:45 am
>> just like that. get this all nice and hot. once we have that sort of cooking down just for three or four minutes, here comes the fun part. a little spiced rum. let that reduce until it's just about gone. you can smell that, right? we just put vegetable stock. we're going to let it simmer 30 to 40 minutes although you could go longer. then we're just about finished. that's how easy it is. we'll season it -- put it into our blender here. another blender will do. season with a little cayenne. a little kick. a little salt and pepper. the soup is hot. make sure your lid is on nice and tight. we're just going to blend it up a little. just blend it until it's nice and smooth. if you feel like it's a little thick we can always add a little more vegetable stock. just keep it a nice consistency.
8:46 am
>> nice toppings here. >> absolutely. i'll let you garnish your own. a little blue cheese. a little pecans. i like a little pecans there. always a little green is good. >> this is pretty healthy. >> very healthy. really the only fat in this is the cheese. >> a little pumpkin seed oil? >> a little pumpkin seed oil on there for you. >> oh, nice. that's terrific. what do we have back here? >> back here we have more of an an tray. winter squash lasagna. we have roasted acorn just like we did previously. then raw butternut there. we'll layer it with pasta, ricotta cheese. a white sauce. a little sage in. scented with some sage. >> a layer of the noodles, the pasta. >> absolutely. we have a little ricotta. a little truffle oil in there. we'll dot that on there. >> how long does that bake for? >> that bakes about an hour at 350 degrees.

so if you start with that and no support system, then she's a train wreck and there is no one in her immediate life to take care of her and then she has an alcoholism and drug problem. it's the last place you want to put people is in prison because there is sort of no fix it. now this defiance of the law i think takes it one step further. >> why are we still talking about her? i can't even remember the last thing she actually did on a professional level. >> i'm going to contrast her with another young actress from long island natalie portman. is it more interesting for the new york post or any media outthroat cover today that natalie portman took her baby daughter to the park or a young woman is crashing and burning? we don't report the planes that land on time. unfortunately we report the planes that crash. it's twofold. number one my life is not that bad. look at this gorgeous celebrity. she is crashing and burning. on the flip side the charlie sheen factor there is something primal. she's acting out, snubbing the law. it's that combination. we are a society blafg badly. >> star, do you think the judge is too tough? she said you have to do these
9:09 am
360 hours or 480 hours of community service but she has until april to do them. yes, she is being slow about it but she is not in violation in terms of the hours yet. >> i don't think she can actually be violated ultimately at the end of the hearing. i think she is being punished more for her attitude than her actions which she should be but the way you punish her for attitude is not jail. that's not where -- >> pile on more community service? the fact that she didn't show up to help a woman's shelter, i mean that is just disgusting. by the way, you have a drug problem, all this stuff. but you're given a shot and you -- >> donny, this is one paycheck away from being in a shelter. >> this happens all the time. if we were in brooklyn you wouldn't know about it. because it does happen. >> she said to her probation officer she didn't find the work fulfilling which really set the judge off. >> yes. >> single sex schools, there is a report in science magazine that looks into whether the single sex schools are beneficial, educationally,
9:10 am
whether they're even legal. >> i thought we put this one to bed. single sex education does make a differences specially for girls. if you look at the women's college. >> you going to do the whole thing they raise their hand versus with boys they don't raise their hand? >> excuse me. a couple days ago we talked about the difference between mentoring and having an advocate. you and i in the middle of the class i'm raising my hand, teacher, pick me. boys absolutely get attention. >> i don't want to date any of us. i think that might have been true 20 or 30 years ago but today's young girls when in the media they see as many powerful women as men i wonder if that's true. >> they don't see as many. >> they were earning 67 cents to the dollar. >> a different discussion. >> let me ask you a question. why would you take, by the way, parents should do whatever they want to do. my daughters are in coed school. i'm sending them to same sex camp. why set up a synthetic environment? like this coed. why set it up? >> it's not synthetic. >> i don't believe in single sex education because i don't believe that that's the way the world operates. >> exactly. >> i believe that when you get -- i don't even like all
9:11 am
black environments, all white environments, all girl or all boy environments. >> even if it was beneficial, shown to be beneficial for young women, do you think because it's artificial you still would prefer to have an integrated school? >> you know, it may be better for young women at that age but when you get to college age i think you got to get ready. you got to get ready for the world. >> as a guy with three girls it's a forbidden fruit. i don't want my girls all contained with girls so they're all of a sudden boy crazy and deprived of it. >> that is not part of the education. >> my whole point is that is part of everything. >> i'm separating you two. next week you're going to sit over there. >> i just want to apologize. i touched her leg. >> that's okay. it happened in the republican debate the other day right? okay. now we digress. next question, when should you remove the ring? watching demi moore and ashton kutcher, demi is still wearing her ring and nobody knows what is going on in that relationship but it raises the question when you're having troubles in your relationship or separated when is the right time to remove the
9:12 am
ring? >> when you're over it. when the ring no longer means anything to you. then you remove it and take it to your favorite jeweler and they put it on a little chain and you wear it around your neck. >> you told us you did that. you said you never wore rings. >> never. neither of my parents ever wore rings and so i can't tell who's mayor antidepressant who is not. >> i didn't wear it because it was uncomfortable. there are people who are separated but still want to work it out. that's when the ring is on. when you're over it, take it off. >> is the ring like the old fashioned way of the facebook status? you know, single, divorced or complicated? >> if any women are concerned that men are not wearing rings, a ring for a man is attractive to women. so that's not a sign of fidelity or infidelity. >> that is a whole other story for another time. >> doesn't it make you disgusted? >> don't shoot the messenger. >> i suspect she is wearing the ring as a way to say to the media leave me alone. >> right. not ready to talk about it. >> how about i'm not ready to be dwone my husband? >> there is that possibility as well. let's get to our next topic.
9:13 am
i like it. can you spot a liar? there is actual science behind it. some of the indicators are repeating questions before answering. too much eye contact. fake smiles. forgetting details. dr. nancy, you're our doctor. is there really science behind it? >> there was a show on television called "lie to me" which has since been canceled because it was too good to be on television and it looked at micro expressions of a face. whether you and i keep contact. whether we bite our lip. whether we look down. there are all these little micro expressions. you can absolutely tell. in one's family i bet there are hints when you look at people. >> do you have tell tale signs you look for? >> my major sign is lies don't have details. it's always easy when you can question them about something just very innocuous. we tell the story of us sitting here. you ask, where was donny seated? just out of the blue, has nothing to do with the substance. if you can ask those kinds of questions you can tell. >> okay. not saying whether this is true or false. i am a great dancer. i am a great dancer.
9:14 am
>> you're lying. >> i can tell he is telling the truth because a corner of his mouth went up because he is daring me to say you're wrong. he is a great dancer. >> in your opinion. >> okay. i knew it wasn't true. instinctively. next topic sexy halloween costumes for kids. they're just getting sexier and sexier. >> while you're under my roof and i am paying for school or food or whatever, the answer is no. you want to go to college and do stuff at a frat party i can't stop you but this, i think, the manufacturers are pushing this more and more and more. >> slutty is the new black. it is amazing. every costume. not a nurse a sexy nurse. you have to draw a distinction. at home i have a 4-year-old and 8-year-old. that speaks for itself. when a girl is 16 or 13 not 13, 16 and wearing short skirts to school they are at an age where they are going to dress a little sexier.
9:15 am
it is hard at that point to pull it back. >> but your 8-year-old -- >> you know when it's wrong. >> your 8-year-old should not be dressing like a hooker. >> duh. >> no matter what. >> thank you for telling me. that's what she was planning for halloween. >> excuse me. i'm at the costume store just the other day. that is for the 18-year-old. i mean for the 8-year-old. for the 4-year-old she can dress as jasmine with the tummy out. >> my 8-year-old two years ago was in a cheerleader thing and it has a little -- i just didn't like it. it was wrong. >> our last topic is cute. granny does nascar. 92-year-old woman went driving in a nascar race because it was on her bucket list so we thought we'd ask you guys what's on your bucket list. star? >> i want to take a ride down the nile like the great queens of africa used to do. i don't know why. i've always wanted to be cleopatra. that's mine. >> that's the weirdest thing. i've always wanted to be cleopatra also. it wasn't nile. it was a whole other setup. so bizarre. >> i always wanted to go into space. i would go into space tomorrow if i were, if i could be part of
9:16 am
any nasa program. >> wait a minute, donny dodged. what is on your bucket list? >> okay. i would love to play in a tennis match in arthur ashe stadium against a great tennis player. >> but who? >> that's cool. >> you had all night tongue about this? you are lame. >> i didn't think about that. >> that's lame. >> pretty lame. >> mine too. >> okay. your life must be so full there is nothing left to put in the bucket. >> okay. >> okay. the architect of world peace. >> all right. star jones, donny deutsch, dr. nancy, thank you. still ahead, the secret to looking your best in the morning. one hint it all starts at night. up next mastering the art of negotiation. we have tips to help you seal the deal right after this.

this morning the art of negotiation. it is a skill that's important in our daily lives. cnbc's courtney reagan is here with the tools you need to become a master negotiator. good to see you. >> nice to be here. >> when you think about negotiation, we think about the ceos. >> yes. >> and all the labor negotiators but the fact is it is something we all need every day. >> we do. it goes way beyond the boardroom. if you think about it most people negotiate or bargain in some aspect of every day life. i mean, whether it's buying a house you negotiate the terms and the price or even calling your cable operator seeing if you can squeak out a couple extra channels for paying that same fee. think about kids at night, negotiating bed time and play time. we do it all the time. really being a better negotiator will help you get that better deal every time without compromising too much. >> there are five styles you talk about. there is competitive, accommodating, collaborating, avoiding, and compromising. why is it good to know what kind of negotiator you are? >> yes. like anything you're sort of predisposed to fall into a certain category and once you know where you lay in that five
9:20 am
bargaining styles you can sort of leverage your strengths and minimize or maybe even improve on your weaknesses. >> some people negotiate and let emotions get involved. how do you take emotion out of the negotiation? >> it is really hard especially when the stakes are high or you're negotiating with friends or family. that's why people hire divorce attorneys because they can keep their eye on the prize without getting emotionally involved. so what you really want to do is prepare ahead of time. literally write down your goals on a piece of paper so you don't lose sight of it. maybe even more important, al, you want to consider the other side's possible reaction so you're prepared emotionally. you know how you'll feel when the question comes back at you. >> who are better negotiators, men or women? >> it actually depends. women are much more in tune with the other party so for a relationship at stake women can be better but men can be a bit more aggressive so sometimes that helps them. it's so situation dependent. >> we see right now the nba lockout. i mean, what's going on?
9:21 am
they are supposedly in a room. i say they get them out of these hotels. put them someplace uncomfortable and make them negotiate until they come out with something. >> exactly. sometimes that atmosphere can have a lot to do with it. think about how high the stakes are. it is a very public battle. i would say most of these folks lie in that competitive bargaining style so it is hard to find that middle ground. i would say the egos are probably pretty high, too. there's a ton of people involved. there are two sides. each side has lawyers and agents and consultants and player representatives and team representatives. there's just a lot going on there. it's going to take a while. >> in any negotiation how important is it to be able to compromise? >> it is actually very important. that's why you kind of want to set up ahead of time. your lowest possible point of acceptance and then the highest point, your aspiration point. you need to know that's your bargaining zone and you can really compromise anywhere within there because you're going to have to make concessions more than likely. but as long as you don't go below that reservation point really the deal should be better

we've all heard of a fear of snakes but what about butterflies or even puppies? on the new animal planet series "my extreme animal phobias" this psychologist works with people to overcome their fear of animals and pets using exposure therapy. robin is here with katy who overcame a spider phobia and jackie who overcame her fear of butterflies. good morning. >> katy, i think a lot of us are afraid of spiders but you actually had to go to a spider exhibit and feed it a cricket. a lot of us can relate to that fear but for you it is a phobia. how did that start? >> there is no specific time where i was initially scared of spiders. i've always been terrified. but i'm at the point where i
9:39 am
cannot be in the same room with them and so i -- >> what did you think they would do to you? >> i had no idea. i just thought i'd be in a room filled with spiders and i'd die. >> you thought the spiders would kill you. >> i did. >> jackie, for you, butterflies, beautiful creeutte fly creature. where did the fear come from? >> a butterfly flew on my shirt when i was a little girl and i thought it was a big huge wasp and since then i've been terrified but dr. z saved my life. >> this is really about the idea of exposure therapy. what was it that you -- how does this work in terms of getting them to relate and be able to do things they weren't able to do before? this is really about being able to allow them to go out in their environment once again, right? >> right. everybody who has participated in this project was so terrified that their lives were really becoming limited. i mean, in katy's case if she walked into a room and saw a spider she would have to run
9:40 am
out, call someone before she could go back in the room. and certainly with jackie her life was limited because butterflies are unpredictable. you never know when they're going to come up. what we do is have them face and confront their fear by doing exposure to it. what happens is through what we call a systematic desensitization the brain begins to see the feared animal differently to where it overcomes the anxiety and they are no longer afraid. >> you had five days to work with them. five days. in fact, i want to show you the progress that katy has made. >> are you sure you can do this? you've done a couple other things. you've been able to sleep next to a room with spiders. >> i actually have a pet tarantula. her name is rosie. >> oh, gosh. >> this looks just like rosie. >> i may run out of the studio. oh, yeah. you're safe. >> far away from that. >> and they hang upside down. >> how are you able to do that? what was it that finally got you to realize that it's not going
9:41 am
to kill you as i'm sitting here thinking it may do that to me? >> exposure therapy and learning more about spiders and that they are very harmless especially this kind and knowing i'm bigger than the spider and more powerful. mind over matter. it is scary. they're daunting but, you know. >> jackie, for you with the butterflies you were able to go to a biosphere and slept there with the butterflies and now you say you actually just recently had another experience with butterflies. what is it, as i see you wearing your bling. >> i had to become more comfortable with these ugly, ugly butterfly necklaces and bracelets. i've bought a lot of butterfly stuff actually. but it's much better. i don't love them. i do not embrace them at all but i do feel like i can live with them. i can be around them and it's okay. they're just a part of nature. it's life. >> and, doctor, i guess the bigger question is, again, this
9:42 am
is about allowing them to then not have that fear of going outside and knowing that they can encounter anything in life, right? >> that's correct. and you see that she's holding a tarantula and it's very extreme. but the reason why we go to that level is because anything underneath it is going to be so much easier. >> right. >> so if she walks into a room and sees a daddy long legs she can handle that no problem. we take them as far as we go and in this case you can see katy has overcome her feared animal. >> it's working for you. >> sorry, sorry. >> i think i need the exposure. >> thank you. my real animal phobia premieres tomorrow night at 10:00 eastern and pacific on animal planet. up next everything you need to look like a million bucks the first these messages.orutng [ inner voice ] establish connection. give me voice control. applications up. check my email and text messages. hands in position.

♪ >> this morning on today's beauty looking good first thing in the morning is hard from puffy eyes to limp hair and lack luster skin, most of us don't wake up fresh as a daisy. how do you get that vibrant look right when you get out of bed? amy is the beauty director for "in style" magazine. good to see you. >> thank you for having me. >> there is no makeup on this table. the idea is these are things you can do the night before. >> exactly. everything we're doing here is stuff you do the night before so you wake up fresh faced and gorgeous. >> let's start with hair. your first tip has to do with this dry shampoo. >> this is for people who have fine hair that's prone to getting oily. you put this on before bed and it will absorb any toil that your scalp emits while you sleep. the great thing is by the time you wake up there will be no chalky residue. >> okay. if you have curly hair and you want to keep the curls in good shape what do you recommend? >> people who have curly hair have the opposite problem. they are worried about big hair that's frizzy. so just coat the curls with gel to the point where it almost feels crunchy and then by the time you wake up it has the
9:48 am
perfect texture. >> it won't feel like that crunchy gel feel? >> no. it softens overnight. if your hair is dry what you want to do is pile it on top of your head and use a piece of panty hose is actually the best way to do it because it won't break the hair. >> this is for hair that's, that gets frizzy. >> exactly. you want to preserve volume at the roots so this will give you a little lift. >> is it really a pony tail like you pull back? >> a tony tail on top of your head and this prevents you from breaking your hair because it is very soft fabric. >> okay. let's move on to skin care. you say we should wash our faces twice at night? >> this is especially true for people who wear a lot of makeup because we've all had the experience of washing our face. >> who are those people? >> and you wake up with raccoon eyes. >> yeah. >> what you want to do is start with a creamy or oil-based cleanser and then finish with a gel cleanser. this will remove any kind of residue and you'll wake up totally clean. >> you have these products here. but just looking for creamy and then the gel cleanser to finish off. >> exactly. >> then the undereye cream. we all got bags under the eyes when we wake up.
9:49 am
what do you recommend? >> this is the bane of everyone's existence. what you want to do is look for an eye cream with caffeine because it will constrict the blood vessels and also push the fluid out of your eyes. >> it won't keep you up at night? >> no. i don't think you're absorbing quite enough to keep you up but it will help your eyes. >> do most of the packages say caffeine right on the label? >> if you look on the ingredients it will say caffeine. >> let's move on to our next thing which is eliminating last-minute pimple. you find one at night. you can counteract it with the right steps? >> this is one of my favorite steps like a gorilla version of the cortizone shot. you take hydro cortizone. slather it on. don't be stingy. put a band-aid on top of it and it creates a barrier which drives the product deeper into your skin and prevents it from coming off. >> don't you end up with band-aid marks on your face? >> nope. especially not if you use one of the more gentle band-aids and also the hydro cortizone is reducing inflammation so any
9:50 am
kind of of that will be gone. you want a big glob. >> we all know the skin gets real dry overnight and you have an idea about a steamer. >> right. well actually what is cool about this is it's something you want to do as you go into winter months. your skin is going to get really dry. create a steam room out of your bathroom by closing the door. wait until your skin gets nice and dewey and then apply a ser umbrella or gel that contains hyleronic acid. >> this is something you do in your bathroom. >> you sleep with it because you apply that and it holds up to a thousand times its weight in water so it will grab onto the moisture. you go to sleep and if you have a humidifier it's even better because the hyleronic acid you've put on your skin will continue to draw moisture all night as you sleep into your skin. >> you can get this anywhere? >> right. what you want to look for is again the hyleronic acid. get it at the drug store. >> you have my favorite tip last
9:51 am
which is wake up more gently. that alarm that blares in your ear is not pleasant. >> we've all had the experience of being rudely awakened. like your fight or flight response. so you really want to greet the morning in a more gradual, gentle way. this great alarm clock basically tricks your body into thinking that it's day time. and, you know, during the day your body produces seratonin which is a neuro transmitter that makes you feel happier and more relaxed. this is a better way to enter the day. feeling in a good mood and nice and alert. >> you're basically thinking sunrise. still ahead we'll head totem he recalled city and check in with hoda and kathie lee broadcasting live from seattle today. there are the drinks too. this is "today" on nbc.
