years ago. you can still hear them. last night at 11:30, it sounded like two planes flew right over my house. >> the faa says all flights into and out of reagan national need to avoid restricted air space to the east over washington. but don't believe air traffic controllers are letting pilots veer out of the noise of baitment zone early. >> generally we don't find that to be the case. our circumstances that require it, thunderstorms, weather avoidance, traffic, other aircraft trying to to sequence. >> it's those occasions wake him up most mornings. >> is there anything at all that you know of that can be done? >> in fact, there is. starting in february, most flight departures will be guided by a new gps navigation system. >> and there is a slight variation. these are fly by points. a quarter mile variance that they have.

disciplined for gross mismanagement. three whistle blowers tipped off air force investigators. one case involved a piece of human tissue. an inch or two in length that belonged to a soldier killed in afghanistan. the bag containing that tissue was found empty with a slit in its side. the piece never found. a total of four families are affected by all of this and they are aware of the investigation. the air force inspector general concluded the leadership failed to respond to weakness in accounting for human remains, but no laws have been violated. an independent investigation argues that saying laws were violated. they say the air force failed to take responsibility for its mistakes and quote, in these instances, the report demonstrates a pattern of air force's failure to acknowledge cope ability for wrong doing relating to the treatment of remains of service members and their families. two of the three officials disciplined in this still do work at dover. no one has been fired.
defense secretary is asking for a separate investigation. officials do not suspect foul play or any criminal intent here, but this does bring up recent problems at arlington national cemetery. however, air force chief of staff is discounting any parallel. they are still investigating this one. >> laura, attorney general, eric holder was grilled on capitol hill today on the failed gun trafficking investigation. using charteds, pictures, and memos, john cornine and charles grassley tried to pin down exact exactly when holder knew about the operation. >> i first learned about the tactics and the operation in the beginning of this year when it became a matter of public controversy. in my testimony before the house committee did say a few weeks, i probably could have said a couple of months.
>> this is not over yet. investigators say they still have not received e-mails from holder's staff. while it appears the assistant attorney general who withheld investigation information in the case. >> the supreme court is hearing arguments on whether police are allowed to track cars using gps without a warrant. all stems from a case in which a federal appeals court threw out a drug conspiracy conviction. the fbi and local police used gps to track a drug suspect for months. the justices expressed deep reservations about the practice, but also seem to have no clear view on how to regulate the use of the devices. >> all right, so you want the high end names, but not the high end price tag. tonight, we're making sure you're getting a good deal. how to spot a fake coming up. also ahead tonight, some of hollywood's hottest stars turn out for the latest premier right here in d.c. in fact, we're going to take you right to the red carpet.

2010, that class never met. letters sent by three graduates of the program to university, steven lerman confirm the students were never taught the evidence based medicine courses. never received communication course materials or instruction and in the final meeting of all members of the graduating class several days before getting their diploma. they were told all students would be scribed a grade of a. all three signers of the letter enclosed copies of their transcript, presumably showing the a's as evidence. one of the letters is dated september 30. the others are dated october 12. six days after the first letter was sent. dr. orchid offers a letter of resignation. the university confirms the resignation and says the gwu officials are investigating the allegations that led to the resignation of the head of the physician assistant program.

used a canvas lining. >> then, the bag on the right. >> they had the logo where it's supposed to be. they have a good quality of the leather handles and a heavier zipper. everything looks really good. >> but it's this bag on the right that is the fake. >> this is probably one of the best knockoffs that we've had. >> even though there's a serial code on the inside, cheap lining and a poorly attached inside tag are the give aways. next, check out these classic shannelle bags. -identical, but only the lilac one is the real thing. >> does it have a left turner lining in it? does it have a fabric lining? where is the serial number? >> the black bag has a plastic lining. both of these gucci bags are bogus. before you fall for a rock bottom price, be ready to play
detective. inspect stitching carefully. red flags are uneven edges or loose threads. the logos should line up and never be cut off. check the hardware. does it have good weight? is it fastened instead of glued? then, try the zipper. it should open and close smoothly. and of course, trust your instinct. while it may be tempting to buy a knockoff, there's a much bigger cost. >> this hurts americans. americans lose jobs because people are counterfeiting merchandise. u.s. industries lose revenue and hire people. hard economic impact on the u.s. >> quite a price to pay for a cheap bag. melanie, fox 5 news. >> ice officials also say the counterfeit goods fund child labor and human trafficking. also a large online market. they want shoppers to trust their instinct. check to see if there's a return policy and buy from

40s. yes, i say, we can do this again tomorrow. if you felt like you got ripped off today, i know at my polling place, everybody had been inside all day and they said please tell us it's going to be nice again tomorrow so we can get outside and yes, you can. thanks for all of you who work the polls today in maryland. it is going to be a wonderful wednesday. it might not be quite as warm today. as high pressure slips off the coast. you may get a southeast wind, but it will be nice. then we change things up a bit for thursday. i'll give you a preview of what thursday is going to bring. a cool front is going to come through the area. it will produce showers. behind it, temperatures will tumble into the 50s and it will be breezy late thursday and on into friday. so, that's how things are looking. let's give you a picture of the next three days so you can plan accordingly. again, wednesday looking good for tomorrow at 68 degrees. if it's a few degrees cooler, it would be from the wind direction. thursday, lots of clouds and some off and on showers.
57 degrees. friday, we're certainly cooler than we have been the last three days. down to 53 degrees. a lot more november like. but this was not. this was lovely. more of the weather we should have had in september and early october. temperatures in the upper 60s to 71 degrees at bwi marshall and again, temperatures really tank very quickly. it doesn't take us long to get into the 30s. we're there at culpeper. hagerstown 52 degrees. i'm not sure why that is. maybe their thermometer is off. d.c. at 49 degrees. hagerstown apparently the warm spot right now. but you won't be for long, dropping into the low 30s. 35 for front royal. germantown about 34. d.c. will drop to 43 and even fredericksburg dropping to 39 degrees tonight. so, want to show you the rain that is being produced. high pressure still hanging on. about 8 or 9 tornadoes produced tonight across east texas into louisiana and a small portion of oklahoma.
so the severe weather threat has been big out here and we've had a little bit of snow around the wichita area and that extends into iowa. not tomorrow. we hold it one more day and that moisture will get stretched out. so your future cast showing you, we have the sunshine tomorrow. i'm pausing this tomorrow night at 10:00. because a little indication that some kind of on shore moisture might try to develop for those of you at the beaches. we'll watch that. our frontal system out to the west. maybe some showers though as early as thursday morning. so that actually moved the timing up a little bit from what we thought yesterday. morning showers possible thursday. maybe another slug in the afternoon as this moves over to the eastern shore along with the front. we'll begin to see clearing out to our west. might see left over snow showers late thursday and friday. but friday clears on out. it will be blustery and it will be cooler. so we'll enjoy what is on tap for tomorrow.
tropical storm shawn has developed out in the atlantic and we are keeping an eye on this. we think probably not. a couple computer models get him closer. certainly going to get big swells and have to watch it in bermuda, because it will pass by closely. this is the storm system that passed off the southeastern united states this weekend. but it has been taking a while and now it has some tropical characteristics. it's going to move to the northeast and pass bermuda with winds of 60 miles per hour. if you are heading to the beaches, watch for those big swells. meanwhile, your five-day forecast, it's swell for another reason here in d.c. because tomorrow looks just as nice as today. even though it is cooler, we're in bargain territory. showers for thursday. that's the only rain i have on the five-day forecast. veterans day on friday, and moderate a bit for the weekend and we keep it sunny. >> like the sound of that. >> thank you. >> 19 kids and counting.
and yes, they are still counting because baby number 20 is on the way. >> oh my goodness. >> reality show stars jim bob and michelle dugger announced they are expecting another bundle of joy. their kids range in age from 23 months to 23 years. dugger says she was surprised to discover that she was pregnant again at the age of 45. the couple leaves their family planning up to god. >> i don't think she was surprised. well, it is now down to the final 11 on the x factor and the remaining competitors are feeling the heat. before they can perfect their performances, they have to select the perfect song. something that can be a challenge. >> it's a different style for me. everyone has seen me sing and dance, but this week i get to show everybody i get to sing for you. >> my selection was difficult. we were back and forth between what kind of song we should do and what fit well with our voices and what could get the audience going. we are going more country.
>> you can watch the final 11 perform right here on fox 5. it all starts tomorrow night at 8:00. we're in the web center with sarah frazier talking about tonight's glee episode which stirred up controversy. you were chatting all night with folks for the glee chat. what's the buzz? >> okay, so tonight's episode is about firsts. tonight was supposed to feature curt and blaine going all the way, let's say, and rachel and skin, parent teacher came out. i mean, online it was such positive reaction. people that love glee know it. they know it's part of the controversy. this is all about, the show is breaking barriers. it's about bringing up topics that are uncomfortable to talk about and putting their own spin on it. that's what they did tonight. >> what was the talk on the chat?
were people saying hey, we thought this was a good episode? >> people were -- yeah, they loved it. they thought it was really well done. i don't think it was over the top at all. it was conservative. you saw a lit and will it certainly a lot of innuendo, but in the end, it wasn't this racy -- i think a will the of people on chat were saying really? that's it? we expected a lot more. where is all this action? so anyway, the chat was positive. >> more positive news for glee. nominated for a couple people's choice awards? >> yes, chris, corey montif, people's choice awards happen in january. both of those fellows got nominations and the show overall got several nominations. we'll find out if they are winners in january. that was huge. and also if you are a fan of glee music, which we all are. their christmas album, they did a second one and you can stream already at aol music. so aol will carry that and next tuesday they will release the christmas album to itunes.
