7:06 am
have not, getting iran to negotiate. >> andrea mitchell, thanks so much. the man that shot an anti-islam video that sparked deadly protest around the world is behind bars. california officials say nakoula basseley nakoula was in violation for a 2010 check fraud conviction. he is held without bail as the judge says he poses a flight risk. a bizarre, shocking end for arising actor in los angeles. police say former sons of anarchy actor johnny lewis beat his 81-year-old landlady to death, attacked, bit two other men nearby, then fell or jumped to his own death from the roof. officials say he also savagely killed his landlady's cat in the strange rampage. lewis had been arrested three times this year and a probation report in may shows police feared the 28-year-old suffered from serious chemical dependency or mental health problems. nasa's curiosity rover is beaming back clues about the
7:07 am
ancient, watery past. these images suggest a waist deep stream once rushed through this spot on mars. the most convincing proof of water on mars to date, scientists say the rounded pebbles likely shaped by fast moving water are truly an exciting find. and love is in the air, but would you say yes to a proposal like this? pilot ryan thompson tricked his girlfriend into believing the plane was about to crash as they flew over chicago. as co-pilot, he asked her to read the emergency procedure.3 1 so ryan initiated the ring engagement procedure by pulling the ring from his pocket and popping the question. she said yes, but then she did
7:08 am
have a question of her own. was there really an emergency? and even when she learned it was all a stunt, she didn't take back her yes. wish them a long, long, happy life together! >> back to savannah and willie. she has to have a sense of humor. >> why do we see we won't see a flood of marriage proposals like that. >> proposal on the scoreboard was the worst way to do it. we have a new winner. let's check the weather. al is in los angeles. good morning. >> he is lucky she didn't pull the ejector seat procedure. good morning, everybody. we have wet weather to talk about in different parts of the country. first of all, we start in texas where we have flash flood watches. that's because we got heavy rain as low pressure makes its way through northern texas. talking about anywhere from three to five inches of rain. we have flood warnings, flash
7:09 am
flood warnings and flood watches in effect for much of southern texas with the heavy rainfall amounts. up to 5" in some areas. in the northeast, more wet weather making it to the northeast and new england. look for airport delays anywhere good friday morning to you. temperatures today are going to be a touch cooler than yesterday, just about as warm but with more low clouds to start. you'll hit about 69 degrees in san francisco, 77 in los gatos and down from 95 in livermore to 90 today. temperatures spike as we head through your saturday and look where we're headed this weekend. 102 degrees inland by sunday. hope you have a great day. >> and that's your latest weather. savannah? president obama is campaigning close to home in washington, d.c. today as mitt romney courts donors and voters in pennsylvania.
7:10 am
both men gearing up for next week's crucial first debate. we have our esteemed panel of nbc news political experts here raring to go. first, let's get to peter alexander in philadelphia. good morning. >> reporter: savannah, good morning to you. all week long, president obama and mitt romney have largely been chasing one another's shadow first to new york, then ohio, finally in virginia. this weekend they will head their own direction as they prepare for the critical first head to head show down, the first in the presidential debate next wednesday. virginia, the old dominion. >> we have to win in virginia. >> reporter: could be the must win state this november. >> we will win virginia. >> reporter: with duelling events, they're appealing to voters that have been to battle. veterans. >> nobody that fights for this country should have to fight for a job or a roof over their heads
7:11 am
when they come home. >> reporter: romney pointed to another round of weak economic numbers, warned an american legion audience of devastating job losses if moves for defense spending cuts goes through. >> impacts will be immediate and significant in virginia. 136,000 jobs will be lost in virginia as a result of this move. >> reporter: with less than 40 days to go, both men are speaking directly to voters. the president's team releasing this new ad that feels like a campaign closing argument. >> if i could sit down with you in your living room or around the kitchen table, here is what i'd say. >> reporter: voters are weighing in. 30 states in all are casting ballots. you can't overestimate the importance of early voting this go around. in 2008, it would nearly a third of all voters, savannah, that cast ballots before election day. this year, that number is expected to rise to as much as 40%.
7:12 am
today, when michelle obama goes out to university of northern iowa, she will be giving a speech, not just a speech, she will be asking supporters there to cast their votes nearly on the spot. there's a polling place a few steps away. >> all right, peter alexander, thank you. for more on this week's events on the campaign trail and look to next week's debate, special correspondent tom brokaw is here, david gregory, moderator from "meet the press," chuck todd, so many titles, we are out of time. let's talk about the president's closing argument. a two minute ad so early in the campaign. a chance to intimidate or early voting begins. >> their strategy is early voting. we did some of our own polling the last couple weeks. among people that say they're voting before election day, president wins 2-1. that's their organizing principle. that's why they do this. it is about early voting. half the battleground states,
7:13 am
50% or more voters vote early, florida, colorado, nevada, north carolina. >> david, is there a risk in those that the obama campaign gets ahead of itself? some of the polls showed widening margins in ohio, a little in florida. it is tight in many swing states. five and a half weeks to election day, and a debate coming in five days. >> i think they fully recognize the pitfalls of getting cocky, i think in part to fill a vacuum to say he has detail, mitt romney doesn't, compare and contrast, not a referendum on his time in office. he knows incumbents likely stumble going into the debates. it is a relentless campaign on the president's side. they recognize the pit falls. >> talk about romney's soft sell. the president has an ad, romney has an ad outlooks to the camera, that i am talking to you, i care about everybody. tom, how much damage to repair from the 47% remark? >> what's so striking to me is
7:14 am
the number of conservative commentators lining up against him. charles krauthammer in "the washington post" talks about he needs to go big, be more defined in policies especially about the middle east. romney gave the president air cover. there are serious questions what happened in libya and absence of security and what's our middle east policy. but romney's missteps have given the president more camouflage than he would have expected. we will learn more next week when we have the rumble in the rocky mountains. >> that column, a conservative column asking for more details has been written every week by somebody about mitt romney the last six months. >> also says a leadership vacuum, republicans i talk to say this is no longer about keeping score on policy, not about ideology, this is about can you see this person being president for another four years or for the first time. that's what they're facing. >> on the question of empathy, isn't it too late for mitt romney to change the way people view him? he began the campaign june 2nd, 2011.
7:15 am
the country knows who he is for the most part. by sending ann romney out, talking about the health care plan in massachusetts, how that covered more people than not, can he change the way people look at him? >> i don't know. i think it depends on the debate and what happens in the debate will depend on how president obama performs against him and how he comes after him. i think the president is lucky to have the unemployment numbers come out next week, after that first debate, rather than this week, before the debate, because that would give him an opening. we have seen the debates take unusual turns in the past. president ford liberated poland when debating, you remember, and jimmy carter said he talked about nuclear policy with amy, and ronald reagan said there you go again, and it changed it for ronald reagan. >> talk about that fight night. many think because of where romney is it is a make or break moment for him. i love to hear the commentators fall over themselves to compliment each other for once on the campaign trail. you have mitt romney saying the
7:16 am
president is obviously a very eloquent, gifted speaker, david axelrod says i think the invasion of normandy took less preparation than romney putting into the debates. let's get real for a moment. who is the better debater really? >> they're both mediocre debaiters. barack obama didn't win debates, joe biden won. actual debates, harvard and yale coaches enjoy will be paul ryan and joe biden. they'll be better. romney is good in a group setting, hasn't done a lot of one on one. the president, john mccain wasn't the best debater either. >> i talked to nathan sproul, how much ground romney has to gain, could be as much as seven points, that's a lot to gain through a debate performance. two guys can be well prepared, one sitting president. >> he did against bush. >> it is not the debate, what is it for mitt romney in the last
7:17 am
five weeks of the campaign to change it. >> i think he has to go big, has to have a couple of really big ideas that connect with the american people and where they are. the economy is slowly getting better. there are real doubts about the medicare plan paul ryan put in place, it is beginning to hurt them in battleground states. i don't think there's one thing that can turn it around for him except the ufo theory which i keep coming back to. just had it again with the terrorist attack on the libyan embassy. things like that can change the elections very quickly. you remember when john kerry ran against george bush on the friday before the election, osama bin laden came out with a screen against america, and people were sticking with what they know on national security. >> thank you so much. good to talk to you. to michigan now and the enduring mystery of jimmy
7:18 am
hoffa's disappearance. they will search for remains. john yang is there. >> reporter: good morning. this is the latest stop on the twisted path searching for jimmy hoffa. investigators are in that shed, gathering a soil sample to see if the mystery of jimmy hoffa rests here. more than 37 years after jimmy hoffa vanished without a trace, the trail led to this suburban home. an informant claims he saw a body buried here around the time hoffa went missing. first told the author of "the hoffa wars." >> he is adamant that he is buried at this location. >> reporter: he directed him to the local police. >> we believe the witness did observe something and we felt credible enough to take the investigation to this point. >> reporter: using ground penetrating radar, authorities found signs of something about
7:19 am
two feet under the driveway. today, they'll take a soil sample to look for evidence of human remains. hoffa was last seen outside a detroit restaurant in 1975, apparently lured by two mob figures. since then, the search has taken investigators to northern michigan, to giants stadium in new jersey, and to a farm outside detroit where in 2006 the fbi raised a 3,000 foot barn and dug under it. once the leader of the teamsters, the nash's largest union, his connection with organized crime kept him in hot water. >> i believe the stories that hoffa was in a power struggle. i believe hoffa was killed by organized crime figures. >> reporter: that possibility could explain the informant's long silence. >> i mean, he is terrified. i could hear his voice tremble yesterday when i talked to him. >> reporter: could this be where the search for hoffa ends?
7:20 am
>> we are investigating it as a cold case homicide. that's been our focus since the beginning. if it somehow happens to be mr. hoffa, great, it will end a major mystery. >> reporter: police say the work here will take about two hours. they're going to take that core soil sample, send it to a forensic anthropologist at michigan state university. if the examination of that soil sample turns up evidence of remains, then they'll start digging. willie? >> john yang, thanks so much. 7:20. here is savannah. >> thanks. harmony and peace are restored to the nfl over the replacement officials. the regular referees back on the field last night to the delight of players and fans. stephanie gosk is in b this morning. morning. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. well, standing ovations at the game are usually reserved for the home team, the baltimore
7:21 am
ravens. fans are crazy about their team. last night, other pros they were happier to see. >> the appreciative fans. >> reporter: the refs are used to boos and abuse. they definitely aren't used to standing ovations. thursday night in baltimore, that's exactly what they got. >> we are excited to have the real refs back. >> reporter: the first nfl game of the season to be refereed by full time, experienced officials. >> i think the players know, i think the coaches know, and we can all get back to concentrating on football. >> reporter: the season began with the lockout imposed by the league and a team of less experienced replacement refs. >> i am sure the replacement refs are nice people and tried their best, but they're in way over their head. >> oh, baby! and the patriots are saying no. >> reporter: the games were marked by controversial calls and chaos.
7:22 am
coaches grabbing refs. >> oh, boy, that's a few bucks. >> reporter: culminating in monday's final play labeled a disgrace. >> i don't like the way this game finished. i have a bad taste in my mouth. >> reporter: a tentative deal struck late wednesday. even though they don't vote on it until saturday, the lockout was lifted for the ravens, browns game. fans are relieved. >> thank god it's over. >> reporter: players and coaches are relieved. >> there will be calls we will be griping about, we will know these are the best in the world. >> reporter: the commissioner is apologetic. >> sorry to bring the fans to that, sorry to bring the general public to that. >> reporter: coaches, players fans want everything to go back to normal. three minutes into thursday's game, there was a sign, normalcy might not be far off. >> holding, offense, number 74, penalty -- >> reporter: the call against the ravens. >> you hear the noise. >> just a little.
7:23 am
>> reporter: the crowd booed the only briefly heroic refs and balance was once again restored. it isn't the end of controversial calls, the calls are part of football. at least now faith has been restored that those most qualified to make them are finally back on the field. savannah? >> stephanie gosk in baltimore, thank you. just ahead, coaches of the youth football team accused of offering incentives to kids, including cash, for hard hits on the field. we're going to hear from both sides. first, this is "today" on nbc.

under an incentive system. 10 and 11-year-olds given cash, between $20 and $50, to knock opposing players out of the game. punishing blows that are often part of the sport. >> we were targeting the best players mostly. anybody could get hit, but like the focus was on their best players? and you were trying to take them out of the game? >> yes. >> reporter: the allegations were first reported by the "o.c. register," john zanelli, a former coach and parent who blew the whistle when the season was over. >> initially it started off that it was cash for the biggest hit, and then over time they started introducing other concepts, like, you know, bonuses for targeted players, extra money if you knock the kid out of the game, even if you hurt a kid. you can get extra money. >> reporter: zanelli is not without his own problems from the league, band from pop warner for life. that decision was because of his misconduct, but zanelli and
7:35 am
several other parents stand behind the allegations that an incentives system was in place, and zanelli says cash was paid for hits like this one. >> big hit. >> reporter: a helmet-to-helmet collision that left one 11-year-old sidelined with a concussion. reggie scales now fears his son may have been the target of a bounty. >> clearly it's head-to-head contact. you know, i was very angry. it was concerning. i felt that there needs to be some account ability if these allegations are true. >> reporter: the men accused of offering cash for hits deny any such program ever existed. assistant coach richard bowman says the claims are nothing but parents seeking revenge over a long-standing dispute. have you ever paid your players for making great plays? >> absolutely not. >> reporter: have you ever paid them for making big hits? >> absolutely not, no way. >> reporter: have you ever coached them or toll them to go after specific players and try to knock them out of the game? >> no.

8:36 am
to the wilmette valley festival. >> it's a really up and coming wine region. 30 minutes outside portland. known in particular for hits pinot noirs, a harvest trail which costs $79. take in three wineries, learn about the wine-making process, tastings along the way and culminates with a grand tasting at the end of the day, really good fun. >> get to do it all in one fun? >> exactly. >> fall foliage, best places to be perhaps, in the adirondacks. >> at ron damage park is the largest park in the entire country, believe it or not. that means they have a very long leaf-turning season from mid-september all the way until the end of october so there's plenty of time to have a look at those leaves. also 1980 olympic winters were there so there's a ski jumping competition >> you don't have to participate on the ski jump. you can look at the leaves.
8:37 am
>> i'll just look at the leaves. i think that's a better idea. octoberfest, have to talk about that one. >> i don't always think about oklahoma might i do. >> might think germany. tulsa, oklahoma, the best in the country. there's barrel rolling and wonderful bavarian food, and your beer, of course, press ernie els and oom papa bands. >> the next best thing to munich. >> only governments $6. >> and a great music festival in new orleans. know about mardi gras and some of the other music festivals but a great one this time of year. >> the voodoo music experience. absolutely love new orleans. a great time to go there. bands like jack white and green day are playing there. lasts three days in city park. because this is new orleans, wonderful food, gumbo, oyster poor boys and you get a lot there. >> your favorite of these if i put you on the spot, laid out

8:39 am
8:40 am
back now at 840, and this morning on "today's style" it's all about helms. changing from mini to maxies, hard to keep up. contributing style editor is here with the lange and short of it, shall we say. good morning to you. >> good morning, savannah. >> what are the rules on hem, and what's in this year had. >> in fashion you have to think of the trends on a spectrum, and you have to sort of calibrate what's right for you. so, you know, regardless of age, there are two tests that you can
8:41 am
do. you can do the seat test, if you can't sit down in a skirt and still maintain your dignity, it's probably too short. you're fine. you passed. >> fingertip rule, both of your arms down by your sides. you don't want the hemline to be above where your fingertips are so really easy. >> all right. what if you have really long arms? >> there's always exceptions to the rule, savannah, but, you know, even if you're in a bind with pants or something like that, wearing a different shoe and the hem is grazing the floor. a very easy fix, for under $10, hemming tape. >> what does this mean? >> instead of going to the tailor and fussing around with all the helms, do it yourself at home. stick it under the cuff and roll it up and voila. >> why did it take so long -- >> should have thought of that. >> let's bring out the models. the first look we're doing is the pencil skirt. >> pencil skirts are huge this fall, and they will always be a staple. this is frederica and the rule of thumb is to leave about three inches between the bottom hem of
8:42 am
the pencil skirt and the top of the boot. it is a classic fall look. that skirt is $50 at hsn. savannah, what's universally flattering on all women is for that hemline to just graze the top of the knee. >> not above the knee, sort of grazing the top of it. >> you'll hear me say that, grazing and skimming, sort of the theme of the hem. >> frederica, that looks great. >> great for date night. >> ankle late jeans this. can be a little bit tricky, whether you should wear flats or heels. >> this is particularly tricky if you had someone petite like our model stacy. you want to make sure if you're purchasing a pair of jeans and you are petite. look for a cropped pair because those go to 29-inch inseam as opposed to 32 or 33-inch inseam. anybody, wearing a jean with a flat, you want to make sure that the bottom hem length skims the back of the heel. >> okay. >> so it should just go underneath your ankle bone. >> if you take these to the tailor to get hemmed, do you bring two different kinds of
8:43 am
shoes. >> a pair of jeans that are your casual flat pair and a pair you wear with heels because in that case the hem would be longer. don't want to splurge on the two pairs, invest in themming tape, under $10. that's the way to do it. >>es blah is showing us trousers. >> isabella is going to work, very popular work trouser, and a lot of women don't know how exactly to do this. what you want to remember is that the back of the trouser should conceal most of the back of the shoe and let the heel pick out. you don't want it to be tripping length. you don't want to skim the floor, skim the heel. not trying to sweep the floor with our hemline. the front pleat of the pant should hit right around the middle of the foot. those pants are under $50 from limited. >> i love how you do the two prints together. >> try to keep trending. >> that's a whole other look. >> and the last model indira,
8:44 am
call it the boho chic look. >> i like to call this the mullet skirt, all party in the front and business in the back. what you want to look for with the hem length is something that's very gradual and that graduates into a longer hemline as opposed to something that's a hard edge, okay. the other thing you want to remember is to carry it with something like an ankle boot. sometimes matching the aesthetics of the skirt or pant with shoe is just as matching the proportion. pay close attention to that. put her in a little ankle booty from target. under $40, and the skirt's from h & m. >> let's bring the models out. didn't show a very long skirt. some people like to wear those, is there a rule over how long is too long? >> it shouldn't sweep the floor. skim or graze the back of your feet. unless you're going to an event in a ball gown, the only time it's sweeping the floor. >> if you think it might be too
8:45 am
short, it probably is. >> exactly. >> thank you. >> thanks, savannah. >> coming up next, spanning the world with len berman, but first this is "today" on nbc.

8:51 am
thought he was the first trash talker. a brash young man. they wanted to see him knocked on the canvas. he fights sonny liften. they think he is going to win. when liften doesn't get off the mat. >> in tennis we know about jackie robinson, don't talk enough about her. >> the female jackie robinson. grew up poor, one of the first to play at wimbledon and win the u.s. open, the first to win both and she won them twice. she was forced to ride the back of the bus in north carolina which upset her. she said what an honor to shake the hand of the queen of england after having to ride on the colored section of the bus. billy mills, grew up poor on an indian reservation. wins the gold medal in the 10,000 meters of the 1964 olympics in tokyo. he was unknown. when the vase over they asked the world record holder were you

10:03 am
>> i was in nantucket last summer. it -- it bugs me to this day. we went to try a new restaurant. and for whatever reason, i couldn't see or not, i left a tip on dinner and realized afterwards that i hadn't left enough at all. i was gone from nantucket. i can't remember the name of the restaurant much less -- >> it bugs you -- >> it bugs me that i didn't leave enough money. i'm very sorry. it was one of those days i was having a brain -- [ noise ] >> yeah. here's something they say, i disagree, but here's what some say -- modern men expect women to go on dutch dates. they expect women to go -- >> dutch on dates. >> what did i say? >> or go to amsterdam with them. i don't know. [ laughter ] >> which could be fun. amsterdam's a wild and crazy place. >> go dutch on dates, split the bill. >> when i was dating in the 1800s, never, never would have
10:04 am
occurred to a woman to pay for anything. ever. i miss the good old days. >> can i say i don't think it's right for a woman to pay on a date. >> that would make you old-fashioned and sexist. >> i don't care. if a guy asks you out or you ask the guy, it changes the whole dynamic of the relationship -- i'm not -- look, if the person can't afford the date, that's okay. i'd rather have an ice cream cone on the boardwalk or a glass of wine on the beach than sit there and do the who's paying what -- >> i know. >> i don't like it. i'd rather have -- i'd rather have a cook-in dinner than that. >> we wanted quality, hoda. we got it. >> no. it's the worst feeling in the world. every date after that date, that's when the game starts. oh, do you want to, should i -- exactly. >> but if the guy starts off saying, i pay for everything, he pays for everything. >> yes, right. >> should the woman say, listen, you've been paying for everything, let me treat? >> i think that's okay. >> even if the guy would let you, you know it would bother
10:05 am
you? >> yes. i would hope he would say no. if he said sure -- >> i have never seen frank let a woman pay for anything ever. i miss the gentlemanly -- you know -- >> a lot of the guys in the survey say they like it when it's splitsville like that, when they split the bill. the economy is terrible -- >> jimmy -- no? no. joe? >> never. >> never have? >> jim? >> once. >> one of our cameramen is asleep. anyway -- >> jimmy goes, what? >> huh? >> are you a charmer. here's a weird story out of india, okay. the question is -- should housewives earn a salary? and you know, we did something that talked about how much -- >> making $100,000, wasn't it? >> yeah. they're talking about passing a law, the government is talking about drafting a law in india that would require husbands to -- >> the husband to pay the salary of the wife. he might think it through before
