8:01 am
did her testimony and the man she was testifying against play a role? and oh, what a night. he's the marine who sent out a youtube invitation on a wing and a prayer. hoping his hollywood crush would join him at the ball. he got his wish. mila kunis joined him last night. we have the photos and their story. let's pull up that photo again. we have been talking about it all morning. mila kunis looked stunning. he's thrilled. to think this all resulted from a dare between justin timberlake and mila kunis. there he was last week. right, kelsey was on the show. they were both just beaming. he had a great time. he was dancing. >> other service members out
8:02 am
there this morning thinking, who should i invite to the ball? >> i have to say this, i think mila was probably the lucky one. very honorable man. more on l.a. sheriff's didn'ts reopening the mysterious case of natalie wood, the actress who drowned 30 years ago. we wanted to know how exactly do you crack a case this old? will today's high-tech tools be of any use here? something you have never seen before, why is this polar bear way up in the air? he was just released from bear jail, ever heard of that, dan? >> nope. >> and he was arrested prior to being released from bear jail, ron claiborne is going to give us the details coming up in the show. he had a great experience. beautiful, beautiful. >> that's coming up later in the show. but first, that controversy over the campus cop caught on tape pepper spraying occupy demonstrators during a
8:03 am
standoff at the university of california, davis, the video has now gone viral. and the school is investigating. speaking of ron claiborne, here's he to kick off on this story. >> in a little bit of more than 24, viewers have seen video on what happened on the davis campus of the university of california. when police moved in to move out the occupy protesters. what you're about to see in the school's chancellor "chilling." when protesters moved in to move out the occupy protesters. after disobeying police orders to remove their tents from campus the occupy ucd protesters linked arms. then a university police officer wielding a can of pepper spray orders the protesters to disperse and then he occasionally sprays the chemical irritant into their faces at close range. >> it felt like my face was peeling off. i didn't even know where i was at that point. >> reporter: some other students recorded it and posted it on
8:04 am
youtube where it has been a viral sensation. >> the police officer had no reason to spray those kids. >> reporter: police in several cities have been using chemical sprays against occupy movement protesters, from new york city to oakland, tear gas and pepper spray have been used to control crowds. and remove demonstrators. >> pepper spray is to keep the people from being able to mount an attack. >> reporter: here, the police officers are trying to disperse a crowd. why would you incaps tate them? they have been surrounded by the protesters and feared for their safety. they said they repeatedly warned them that force would be used if they did not leave. after viewing video of the incident the chancellor of uc davis called the police action against protesters chilling. she ordered an investigation. >> i personally feel really bad about what happened to students
8:05 am
and the whole incident. >> reporter: as protests erupted again on the uc davis campus last night, the school's faculty association said it was outraged by what it called police brutality and called on the chancellor to resign. and the school's chancellor had initially defended the campus police's action last night. she said, after reviewing the video, she finds it now sad. in her words. meanwhile, the occupy uc davis protests are still going on. dan? >> thanks, ron. we'll turn now to politics. your voice, your vote. in a big event in iowa this weekend, most of the republican candidates were there and one front-runner was noticeably absent -- mitt romney. many of his opponents saw that as an opportunity to take shots at him. something interesting is developing in the poll, four-way tie with one surprising candidate ron paul holding steady.
8:06 am
could he surprise everyone? david kerley joins us now. david, iowa is a pivotal state for ron paul. if he wins in iowa, he's likely to stay in the poll. >> reporter: this is an interesting year, bianna. just six weeks now until iowa voters go to their caucus. the first presidential contest. and at this point it's still a toss-up. in a megachurch -- >> i truly gave my life to christ. >> i actually gave my life over to the lord. >> reporter: the candidates put their christian conservative credentials on display. but also found ways to talk about war and the occupy wall street movement. >> that they took over a public park that they didn't pay for. to go nearby to use bathrooms they didn't pay for, go get a job right after you take a bath. >> reporter: and for herman cain, another long pause to a question.
8:07 am
>> phase four -- >> reporter: about being diagnosed with cancer. >> before my wife and i were about to get in a car, i said, i could do this. she said, we can do this. >> reporter: missing from this iowa christian chat, mitt romney, he was in new hampshire. but his name did come up. >> if only mitt romney were here to respond. >> reporter: romney has not blanketed iowa. voters seem unimpressed, uncommitted. and they're looking for another anti-mitt romney that might be ron paul. >> are you prouder of your medical profession? >> doctors are still rated a lot higher in pollings than the politician. >> reporter: there is talk that paul now has a chance to win, yes, win, iowa. >> he has the combination of a grassroots organization as well as the financial resources to be able to go up on television and he has a committed core of voters.
8:08 am
>> reporter: now, here's the situation in iowa, voters there like to meet the candidates. so, look for december to be all about iowa. iowa, iowa, iowa. as we get down to that first contest, dan. >> david kerley, thank you. tomorrow in washington, a big day and for many americans possibly an infuriating one. over the summer, when the government nearly shut down because the two parties couldn't couldn't agree on raising the debt ceiling, a huge fight resulted in the stock market tanking and america's credit rating being downgraded. lawmakers and the white house cut a last-minute deal. they agreed to create something called a super committee. bipartisan committee of lawmakers that was to come up with a plan to get the deficit under control. but the members of this super committee appeared to be grid lock. their deadline is tomorrow.
8:09 am
let's go straight now to abc's christiane amanpour. lot of americans are going to conclude tomorrow if this deadline is not meant, our government is incapable of getting anything done. is that unfair conclusion to draw? >> well, dan, not really, because as you point out, this super committee was to be failproof. a real authority to get things done. failing to come one those vital cuts they have identified to get that deficit under control. >> assuming if they miss the deadline, what does it mean for the rest of us? that's a good question. they enshrined an automatic cut if they didn't meet their deadlines. cuts in the military but now, people are talking about politicians trying to figure out whether they can avoid those cuts and do the job in another
8:10 am
way. it's divot to know exactly how it's going to turn out. >> as you say, kicking the can down the road. christiane, always such a pleasure to have you on sunday mornings. be sure to join christiane later on this morning on "this week" when she talks presidential politics with chicago mayor rahm emanuel. ron claiborne with a look at the other stories developing this morning. firefighters in nevada have mostly contained that huge wind-whipped fire that tore through reno friday morning. most of those who had evacuated returned home. but not everyone. >> reporter: they had no idea what their homes would look like. many feared the worse. >> anxious to get back home? >> i want to see if i have a home. >> reporter: when the nearly 10,000 people forced to evacuate, let back in for the first time saturday, most breathed a sigh of relief. of the thousands threatened only 32 homes and structures were
8:11 am
destroyed. >> there's a stove top along that wall there. sink and counter area there. >> reporter: jim hammers and jerry mcknight are among that unlikely group. you lived here 18 years? >> yes. it's a total loss. >> reporter: the only possession they could save, these salt and pepper shakers. like many of their neighbors, they awoke early friday morning with flames inching towards their backyard. winds gusting over 70 miles an hour. kicked the fire into overdrove. it torched more than 2,000 acres. this fire is now mostly contained. only a handful of hot spots still remain. they believe that the cause is likely a downed power line. for "good morning america," cecilia vega. potential security nightmare was avoided during president obama's visit to australia this

and a woman tailgating before the annual harvard-yale football game in connecticut was killed yesterday when she was hit by an out of control u-haul truck. two other people were injured. the driver was a yale student. and penn state university won its first game, football game, since its longtime coach joe paterno was fired. the nittany lions beat ohio state, 20-14, in columbus, ohio. the last time penn state won a game without joe paterno as head coach or assistant coach was back in 1949. it looks like penn state will be heading toward a bowl game. >> those players i spent some time with them, they're still hoping to pull out the rose bowl. >> it looks good right now. ron, dan, you recovered from our lunch yesterday. >> we had lunch with the newest member of our team. >> ginger. and dan bought, right?
8:14 am
>> they all pitched in. >> did we scare you away? >> not at all. i'm so, so happy to be here. even after having lunch with the three of you. it went well. >> we were telling our deep, darkest secrets at lunch yesterday. glad you're back. >> in the meantime the upper plains, the northern plains had their first significant snow of the season and it was not nice. they had accidents, even one death. lots of folks off the road. the first one is always a problem. but when you get 3 to 12 inches of snow, just north of st. cloud, it's going to be an issue. that video was from st. cloud. where they got 6 inches. so behind it, cold air. in it comes, you see 18 in minneapolis. minot, a nice 5. single digits and teens. there's another storm that's about to hit california, it's actually begun already. los angeles, here, showing some rainfall. that energy is going to kick ahead and severe storms going to
8:15 am
pop up, anywhere from eastern texas through the southeast, exactly where they were hit. i'll talk much more about the travel weather within the half-hour. for now that's the big picture. >> so it's not going to be perfection as far as travel goes. but we had some very nice photos coming in facebook or twitter. rapid city,
8:16 am
one of the areas that had snow, they're now seeing drifting and wind. it's pulling away. that beautiful picture from hoboken, though. >> right here in our backyard. >> i just got word from ron he's going to play for dinner, he's got dinner the next time around. >> all right, thank you, ginger. now to that 30-year-old hollywood mystery that has everyone fascinated. police in los angeles have reopened the investigation into natalie wood's death. with so much time having passed since the actress drown, how exactly are they open hoping to crack this case? >> good morning. l.a. county sheriff's detectives are releasing specifics on how they're going to pursue it. this high-profile hollywood mystery case. the victim natalie wood. age 43. hollywood beauty. found dead in the water november 29th, 1981. her death, declared an
8:17 am
accidental drowning. 30 years later, investigators say they have new information. >> they haven't subsubstantiated that information. they have assigned two seasoned detectives to take a look at this case. >> reporter: they'll start with existing evidence. reviewing pictures and notes from the scene near catalina island, the yacht that she was on, the dingy that she may have been trying to board. the autopsy report. >> you could have medical examiners today review the l.a. examiner's report to see if there are any inconsistencies. >> reporter: next up, the key witnesses. the three other people on the boat, robert wagner, wood's husband, also a famous actor, claims that he saw and heard nothing about his wife's drowning that night. christopher walken, wood's friend and handsome co-star. he has not talked publicly since the case was reopened. dennis davern the captain on the boat, he said that he heard a vicious fight before wood
8:18 am
disappeared and that wagner asked him not to look for her. >> perhaps there are additional allegations. but allegations take you nowhere unless you can prove them. >> reporter: could that proof come from new evidence, maybe from high-tech search and testing techniques like we see in today's tv crime dramas. our experts say not likely. >> talking about going to a boat 30 years later, it would be unrealistic to swab anything. >> dna evidence, the type of evidence that usually changes the case. we don't have that here. we just have a change of testimony. short of that, it's going to be very difficult to for them to reclassify this case. >> now the experts we spoke expect the review of the natalie wood case will be done relatively soon. again, robert wagner said that he supports this new investigation. dan and bianna, he's not a suspect at this time and this case is still ruled an accident. >> thank you. appreciate it. now to a happier hollywood

animals can wander into areas where people live. imagine if that wildlife for polar bears, that's what's happening in a city of manitoba, canada, where scientists say global warming is driving those beautiful, but potentially dangerous animals right into town. they're magnificent. captivating. somehow, even magical. to see them in the wild. was amazing. churchill, manitoba, calls itself the polar bear capital of the world.
8:40 am
it's here on this tundra, that hundreds of polar bears come out of their summer-long torper and head to the shores of hudson bay, waiting for the water to freeze over so they can go out on to the ice to hunt seal. but, as you see from these warning signs in town, sometimes a polar bear will come right into churchill. >> you don't want to fight with a polar bear? >> you're not going to win. even a small one. >> there's a bear right here. there are a couple of bears here. >> reporter: wayward bears who wander into town, get arrested, captured and taken here to bear jail. after several days they're taken out, tranquilized and blindfolded in case they wake up too soon. and they're air lifted away. we followed in an another helicopter as this bear was
8:41 am
carried about 40 miles north of churchill. out into the wilderness. this bear is about 400 pounds. he was kept in the bear jail for a week or so. it will take about three hours for this tranquilizer to wear off. hopefully, he'll wander off in another direction in the search of food. soon the bear began to wake up. the ranger marked his back in green dye. if he shows up in churchill again, they'll know that he's a repeat offender. >> bears are coming ashore earlier and in poor conditions. >> reporter: jeff york is a polar bear expert. head of arctic species conservation, for world wildlife fun, which is leading research into bear's habits. york said that earth's warming climate means that it's taking longer for ice on hudson bay to
8:42 am
form and it is thawing earlier. >> polar bears are definitely threatened. and thairt threatened by habitat loss threatened by climate change. >> reporter: jeff would be our guide on our polar bear expedition. go out into polar bear country and hopefully get up close and personal with a bunch of polar bears. in our trip on the round ra, we saw a bunch of polar bears. we got a female bear right next to our buggy. she's coming over to check us out. looks very curious. changed her mind. the bears we saw were on the move. but in no particular hurry. they're hungry because they haven't had anything to eat since coming off the ice last july. and once again this year, the ice has been late forming. we're late getting them to their meal this year.
8:43 am
>> late getting them to their meal this year, and they were early getting off. so that window without food is growing at both ends. >> reporter: on our last day the weather turned bitterly cold. far below zero and with a fierce numbing wind. i'm cold. i don't know about you. but the bears, no problem. but cold enough for the ice to begin forming on hudson bay. we watched as some of the polar bears seemed to test the ice and they seemed to sense, too, finally, they'll be able to hunt for food. at the current rate of ice loss, it's predicted that there will be no ice forming any longer on the hudson bay. by 2080. there's an effort going on to create kind of a permanent habitat in the northern latitudes. for some of the 20,000-plus arctic polar bears that exist. it would involve preserving this area in the northern latitudes. this would resist global warming longer. coca-cola are putting up money
8:44 am
to support this research and effort. and matching up to 1 million bucks. >> that image of them testing that ice. >> you looked at climate change, what is the trend line from your perspective? >> whatever it is, we know that it's warming, we know that there's less ice, and without ice, the ocean has a more difficult time getting back and eating back at carbons. so, our air gets worse. there have been studies by different canadian agencies that has been proven. >> you want to try to help the polar bears, you can contribute by going to on yahoo!. >> great story, ron. coming up -- remember jubjub the amazing balancing dog. he has other skills coming up after the break. what makes a dollop of daisy so creamy and delicious?

over time, my lashes thinned. after 40, i didn't have enough lashes. i'd heard of latisse® but had questions. my doctor said... latisse® is the only fda approved prescription treatment for inadequate or not enough lashes. now with latisse® my lashes are longer, darker, with more than double the fullness in 16 weeks. if you are using or have used, prescription products for eye pressure problems, use latisse® under close doctor care. latisse® use may cause increased brown pigmentation of the colored part of the eye which is likely permanent. eyelid skin darkening may occur which may be reversible. if you experience eye problems or have eye surgery, consult your doctor. common side effects include itchy eyes and eye redness. i trust latisse® and i use it too. my lashes changed as i got older. now i use latisse®. more than double the fullness in 16 weeks. are your lashes thinning as you get older?
