what you can do to protect your pe and best boss ever? the ceo slashing his own salary to give his employees a huge raise. everyone in that company making at least $70,000 a year. he'll tell you where you can send your resume when he joins us live, today wednesday, april 15, 2015. from nbc news this is "today "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. and good morning. welcome to "today" on this wednesday morning. savannah taking some family time this week. she'll be back next week and i have hoda kotb here. a lot of stories that people will be talking about today. the story of dan price, that ceo is one of them. >> and the other one is the people out in the plaza who are looking to pickle you. i'm sorry.
7:02 am
i saw the signs. ellen has made her mark and today it's going to be a very -- >> remind me to thank her for that. >> yeah. >> we'll talk about that and we'll talk about dan price in a second, but let's talk about a top story. a new wave of protests across the country condemning police brutality even as officials in arizona defend the actions of an officer who used his patrol car. you're looking at the video right now to take down an armed suspect. nbc's miguel almaguer has a closer look at the dramatic dash cam video. miguel, good morning. >> reporter: matt, good morning. that video was taken back in february, but it was just released by police. the officer involved won't face any criminal charges. this morning many are saying that violent takedown was excessive force while others say it may have saved lives. >> i'm staying back at a distance. >> reporter: dash cam shows the suspect on foot when a second police cruiser speeds in, making the violent collision.
7:03 am
>> oh! >> man down! >> the direct view from officer michael ripico's squad car. >> the violent video. the suspect, mario valencia is seriously injured, but survives. police say his crime spree began when he committed theft at this 7-eleven, later starting a church fire, carrying out a home invasion, then driving a stolen car to walmart where authorities say he steals a high-powered rifle. miranda police officer dan rowan spots the suspect nearby, reportedly holding the stolen rifle to his chin. rowan radios dispatch. >> he's got the gun to his neck. valencia ignores the man to drop the rifle. >> a single shot fired by the suspect. officers are warned. >> the gun is loaded. >> this is one of those things that elevates the situation. >> moments later, quickly
7:04 am
speeding up, officer michael ripico slams into the suspect. a violent and dramatic ending. >> i think it's clearly excessive police force. the suspect's attorney, michelle metzge my hope is that there will be some kind of an internal investigation into the actions of this officer. >> i think that the decision to put an end to it as quickly as you can was a good decision. >> oh! >> hospitalized for two days, the suspect faces 11 felony charges and remains in jail. as for the officer behind the wheel he was cleared of criminal wrongdoing in three days though he's still under administrative review, he could face disciplinary actions, but police saying he did the right thing. matt? >> miguel almaguer. >> i think if you just see the video and knew nothing about the story you immediately jump to one conclusion, but when you hear more of the details of what happened before that takedown, it's much more nuance.
7:05 am
>> once you see a man firing a gun and who knows who he's going to hit, there will be a investigation on that. >> hillary clinton is campaigning in iowa, but she is facing new questions about the email controversy during her time as secretary of state. kristin welker is in iowa. what can you tell us? >> reporter: hillary clinton arrived in nor kwauk for a business roundtable in just a few hours. it's sparked a media stampede and sharp jabs from her republican opponents as the email controversy has resurfaced. as hillary clinton looks for political redemption in iowa she's still facing questions about her use of personal emails. the new york times reporting this morning that in 2012 congressional investigators asked clinton in a letter whether she'd used a private email account while serving as secretary of state. mrs. clinton did not reply to
7:06 am
the letter and when she answered in march 2013 nearly two months after she left office it ignored the question and provided no response for it. her first public event that was open to all press sparked a media frenzy with camera crews racing to get a shot of her at a local community college. >> the guy in the orange pants is pretty quick. >> talking to students inside, clinton sharpened her message on the economy, trying to rally critics who say she isn't progressive enough. >> there's something wrong when ceos make 300 times more than the typical worker. >> i caught up with clinton tuesday and asked what she'd learned from losing here in 2008. >> reporter: how do you win this time? what's the strategy? >> i'm having a great time. i can't look forward any more than i am. >> they're watching closely including new jersey governor chris christie w hampshire this week. >> anyone running for president should have the chance to do it and we'll see how she does.
7:07 am
>> they made fun of clinton in iowa which produced this infamous photo. >> we have a hillary sighting and she's been found en route to iowa. >> one aide tells nbc news clinton wasn't aware of the letter because it went directly to the state department. another aide tells "the new york times" her usage was widely known to colleagues she emailed. clinton's next stop on the campaign trail, new hampshire which hosts the nation's first primary. matt? >> kristen welker. chuck todd, moderator of "meet the press" is here with an early campaign report card. good morning to you. you'll be giving us your grades for people who rolled out the campaigns and a couple who haven't yet declared and let's start with hillary clinton. she dodged kristen's question. >> yeah. >> it's very clear she wants to appear differently this time around than she did in 2008. talk about it. >> her first day she certainly sent that message. this whole idea of saying i'm
7:08 am
not going to be presumptuous about this. not inevitable. >> not a foregone conclusion. >> the irony here is you have a whole bunch of republicans who are trying to look presidential and she's desperately trying to not look presidential. the first days are outstanding. >> they've been satisfactory for this reason for the announcement. she's had all this time to say something and yesterday the first thing she says attitude, she had no message yet. until she has the why you can't give her an outstanding grade. >> slightly overshadowed by hillary clinton was marco rubio. big contrast. he held a big rally and tried to get away from his liabilities of youth and inexperience and he says they're benefits because i'm the leader of a new generation. >> he could have turned a lemon of a situation and hillary clinton overshadowing. i thought his speech was very good andee he created a contrast
7:09 am
that was interesting making the youthful contrast with hillary clinton which is a contrast to jeb bush. he did two for the price of one and one reason it's not getting an outstanding grade for the announcement and only satisfactory, no follow through this week. >> he went back to washington. >> he's not in iowa and new hampshire. if you look at ted cruz and rand paul they will stretch out their announcement for a week. >> a couple of guys who appear to be running, but have not declared. jeb bush is part of a political dynasty, but wants everyone to know he's his own plan. how is his pre-campaign going? >> financially it's great. he'll raise a ton of money and message wise and look at this week, this week shows you how high the hurdle is. you have one dynasty candidate announcing on the democratic side and then you have your protege marco rubio in your home state and your hometown announcing, making the case against you by making the case against
7:10 am
against hillary clinton. how is he going to deal with the bush question? >> also a lot of work to do, chris christie. he's up in new hampshire trying to bownunce back from a dip in the polls. we could see indictments for aides of his as early as this week and he's telling voters i'm willing to take on very difficult issues like entitlement. that's what you do when you are in a desperation mode, hail mary mode and he's watching jeb bush spoof up money and conservatives don't trust him. you brought up the issues in new jersey and we didn't talk about his economic record which is frankly shaky. i understand the decision to say i'll be the brave guy. i'll be the tough guy. guess what? there's never a con spike wensy in a primary for that kind of talk. primary voters want to fall in love and that's not a message to get people to fall in love with you. >> chuck, we appreciate it. we'll head to new hampshire right after the show for an exclusive interview with governor christie.
7:11 am
you can catch part of that conversation tonight on "nightly news" and tomorrow morning on "today." let's go over to hoda. a harsh prison sentences handed out to a group of educators in atlanta for their roles in a massive cheating scandal we've been following. erica hill is here with more. good morning, erica. >> good morning. the judge called this a scandal, the quote, sickest thing that's ever happened in atlanta. this morning the eight people who received the most severe punishment are out of jail, expected to appeal, but not after they have the book thrown at them. >> i'm going to put you in jail. if you yell at he and point at me. >> a fiery sentencing hearing capped off one of the largest cheating scandals in history involving atlanta public schools or atl. >> everybody in the education system at ats knew this cheating was going on and your client
7:12 am
promoted it. >> three former educators were sentenced to seven years in prison. others getting jail time as well for changing student scores on standardized exams to meet imposed standards. >> there were thousands of children that were harmed in this thing. this is not a victimless crime. >> the atlanta scandal dates back as early as 2005, but the debate over standardized testing rages on. with many challenging the efficacy and emphasis of tests which impacts both students and the teachers responsible for educating them. >> i think that there is a consensus that while atlanta might be an outliar, there is a lot of bad behavior and undesirable consequences and schools are pulled away from students when education experts want to see. >> reporter: much of this latest debate centers on standardized tests designed to measure the implemented standards of the common core curriculum. they emphasize critical thinking
7:13 am
and analysis and we want to help them think and analyze. >> this week's standardized tests are in protests in florida and new york where some parents are having their kids opt out of taking the tests. full of errors, overly long, stressful and provide them with no useful information. >> now in georgia these new standardized tests have been rolling out this spring and those results will come in the fall. >> this is a very big deal in schools all over the place. my daughter told me there were a lot of kids who did not show up in her class. >> wow! >> i used to cover courts that cover crime, it seems like a lot to me. >> the judge gives them opportunities and says look, i'm offering you this opportunity to apologize, agree to a plea and they did not. so -- thanks, erica. >> natalie is here with overnight news on those intense talks involving the u.s. and iran.
7:14 am
>> good morning, everyone. once again, today iran's president said its country will not expect a nuclear deal with the u.s. and other major powers unless all sanctions on iran are lifted. the deputy accused of manslaughter and 73-year-old baits turned himself in in tulsa where he was booked and then freed on bond. he is due in court next week. the sheriff's office says baits accidentally shot and killed eric harris after confusing his gun with his stun gun. it took three months to do it, but a jury's been picked in the colorado trial of james holmes charged with killing 12 people and wounding 70 in a movie theater attack three years ago.

amazing video to show you. take a look. this was in utah. i-80 closed down. several semis at least 25 cars, several people injured, one person killed when the dust storm blew off the salt flats and caused zero visibility and just a nightmare there. let's take a look at what happened near eugene oregon near a local community college. they normally don't see this, but this was a tornado and ef-0 tornado that flipped several cars in the parking lot including one with two people already in it. the good news is nobody got hurt, thankfully, for that and remember that big ef-4 tornado that hit northern illinois. take a listen to the sound. we just got this video in. this is,a mazing stuff. >> this is a tornado and i cannot tell which way it is going so i don't know how to get away from it. i would say it's going to come right over me. see if i can back up here a little bit and get under the
7:18 am
bridge. the truck feels like it's about to lift up off the ground. >> this guy is about as calm. >> you would have had to bleep a lot of that if i'd been shooting that. luckily, he wasn't hurt, but look at the damage at how the trees were stripped in the background. we're not talking about tornadoes right now. we're talking about snow, big upper level low in the rockies. temperatures 25 to 35 degrees colder in the base of the rockies than yesterday with winter storm warnings. rain and winter mountain snow is expected as the low dips down tonight into tomorrow and look for snow in the rockies including just to the west of denver, tomorrow ahead of us we have severe weather. damaging wind, risk of tornados and we're looking at snowfall amounts. look at this, upwards of 18 inches of snow north and west of denver and then rainfall wise in the gulf we're looking at anywhere from 3 to 5, upwards of six inches of rain along some sections where we're going to be

7:21 am
of his dog who had so many followers on facebook it might shame all of us. it was the response to how many hours he works a week that caught most of the attention. he responded. if you count the time that i'm in the office it's probably no more than 50 to 60 hours a week, but if you count all of the time i'm focused on our mission, that's basically my whole life. we asked on facebook if you're a full-time employee how many hours a week do you work, and here's the answer. 72% say they work 40 to 50 hours a week there. so keep the conversation going on our facebook page, but how many hours people are putting each and every week. >> i think he's right. i don't know anybody who is massively successful who works 40 hours a week. they all tend to work much more than that. >> right. exactly. all right. >> tamron, thank you very much. coming up, did you get a flu shot, not for yourself, but for your dog?

8:17 am
by her side. she says because i caught this early and have excellent doctors and because i got a second opinion. wilson is the second big name to come forward recently. last month jolie revealed she elected to remove her fallopian tubes to prevent ovarian cancer. it came after she found out she was genetically predisposed to cancer. chrissy chris christy funk treated jolie. >> it's great when a star will be vulnerable and transparent enough to reveal a diagnosis. it's powerful. because they have a voice that gets heard louder than your neighbor telling you her story about breast cancer. >> reporter: overnight support poured in on social media. wilson has been monitored for years by doctors after past tests put her at high risk for breast cancer. two biopsies came back negative. but when a friend encouraged her to get a second opinion, she listened. >> second opinions can be
8:18 am
incredibly important when an entire treatment strategy gets altered by a change in diagnosis. >> reporter: for wilson she says going with her gut may have saved her life and urges others to do the same writing, i hope this will encourage others to get a second opinion and to trust their instincts if something doesn't feel right. >> here to talk about the importance of second opinions is nbc's medical contributor dr. natalie azar. i thought when you had a biopsy like rita did, it's black or white. good news or bad news. but that's not the case. >> that's what a lot of people think. this comes on the heels of an important study a few weeks ago that concluded that one out of every four breast biopsies that's read is read incorrectly. the take home message there was at the extremes if you have obvious cancer or benign lesion they were usually correct. but in the middle the precancerous legions, there was a lot of room for error. >> that's shocking. i think a lot of the reasons people don't go get second opinions is number one, they're
8:19 am
not sure their insurance will cover it. and number two, they've been with their doctor forever and they think he or she knows best. that's not the best advice though. >> not necessarily. t to state from the outset everybody is entitled to a second opinion. it can be as mundane as you have arthritis in your knee to cancer. seek a second opinion. >> let's go through some things. you get a scan. is that something -- a breast scan or whatever. should you get a second opinion on that? >> not necessarily all the time. but a few things to remember here. number one and i don't want to take anything away from radiologists. they do a tremendous job training to read these things. if you're reading mammograms all day for 20 years, for example, you're going to have more expertise. so certain cases like mris and x-rays and cat scans and mammograms there are certain criteria the radiologist has to look for. but there is some subjectivity. it is read by a human at the end of the day. >> biopsies you say, always second opinion? >> i would. i really would. again, for the reason that with
8:20 am
these middle lesions as we call them there are -- you can see in the monitor, left we have a normal breast biopsy. and on the right we have the cancerous one. certainly at first blush they look a little bit difference. but if you get in there closely, there are so many specific things that pathologists have to look for and count and measure and everything like that. at the end of the day, there is a lot of interweavability. >> let's talk about other second opinions. let's say you need medicine for hypertension or blood pressure those kind of things. side effects of the meds is that something to check with a second doctor about? >> i like to recommend especially if it's a chronic maintenance medicine. you want to know are there other alternatives? are they monitoring for them? this is not we're not talking about a quick course of antibiotics but something the doctor anticipates you will be on for a long period of time. if you have a gut feeling, get a second opinion. and for surgery, you say
8:21 am
always -- if it's elective surgery, should you always get a second opinion? >> i always recommend this. one will say you need a knee replacement. the other will say you don't. and sometimes if there's a differing opinion, you get a tie breaker. what rita wilson did, she had two different readings. initial which was normal. one pathologist who read it as invasist. she had a third confirm it was invasive and she had surgery. >> that was great for her. stand by. tamron's in the orange room where people are sharing their concerns. >> some compelling stories on our page. jenni said she went complaining of shortness of breath he shrugged it off. then i went to the er where they told me i had a pullmonary em embolism .

you can keep the conversation going on on our facebook page. >> that trust your gut is very important. >> rita wilson said it herself. she didn't feel comfortable with that diagnosis. >> all right. thank you so much. matt? >> hoda, thanks. dr. azar thank you. changing subjects now, the elimination rounds are underway on nbc's hit show "the voice." naturally carson has the inside story. take a look. >> give it up for your top 12. >> reporter: as last night's competition between the season eight singers played out on stage, the backstage battle between the coaches picked up right where it left off. with blake shelton taunting adam levine about last season's come from behind win. >> that will go down in history as one of the most epic fails in television history. >> reporter: wasting no time the coaches recruit reba to help

8:47 am
use one ingredient to make three different dishes. here i've got olive oil and some garlic. >> and when you're cooking for big batches, you need a dip, dip skillet. >> and a big one. another trick is you know when you go to people's homes and it smells so good when you're cooking garlic put salt on top of it that what makes it come out. mind grabbing that meat for me? i'm going to do some onions and tomatoes. put that meat in there for me. get in there. there we go. and this is a lot of meat. remember it's bulk cooking. >> how much is that? >> three and a half. i've got a lot in there. now, at trick is when you're cooking ground beef how it's getting chunky. use a whisk to break it apart. >> and saute a bit. you want to cook it just until you have a bit of liquid like this. once you have this this is ready for your first set. you're going to split this in three. do it right in the skillet.
8:48 am
that way you know you have the right amount. >> take part of that throw it in the freezer. >> get some for me. one-third. put knit the freezer. then you go back to the beans. beans, rice beef. that's one. then another third. we're making one-third over here. can you put it here for me? >> it's taking me time camilla. >> chop chop. here i'm going to put corn carrots -- >> you gave me a puny spoon here. >> put it in there. give me the tomato sauce. chop chop. we're on live tv. >> do you order matthew around like this? >> basil. >> uh-huh. >> get your happened innd in there. honey. let it sit for a bit. that's your second dish. my thing is put it in the freezer. when you're in a crunch meal to go. >> you've got a third left and you're making tacos. >> we make taco tuesday at home.
8:49 am
today's wednesday, wednesday taco. >> it's heavenly by the way. >> the taco bar you can basically put anything you want on it. have fun. get the kids involved. they can make their own tacos. and the trick to that is get refried beans and scrape it in the shell so the kids don't know they're eating them. >> i learned you're bossy in the kitchen. >> well you're slow. >> thank you very much. good to have you here. she's sticking around to talk with hoda and kathie lee. and you can get all of this week's skillet recipes on today.com. up next shut up and dance. walk the moon performs their hit song live in the studio. first this is "today" on nbc.

this morning on "today's take," lucy lawless from warrior princess to salem which. and we'll cozy up to some weird wild, and deadly animals. all that and more coming up now. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today's take" with al roker, natalie morales, willie geist, and tamron hall live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. >> welcome to "today" on a wednesday morning. it's april 15th 2015. news flash. it's tax day. got a few hours left to get those babies in. i'm willie along with al, natalie, and tamron.
9:01 am
have you caught your breath from walk the moon? >> i can't remember the last time a band rocked it like that. >> when al does his overbite and he's jumping up and down. >> that's not an overbite. he's got soul. >> that's a contender for song of the summer. >> yeah. >> first nominee? >> first nominee for song of the summer. never too early to talk about summer. >> i do like "bills." >> we've got two on the list. let us know your early contenders. >> #song of the summer. >> but you have to does now because by the summer it's got to be full boil. we're at a simmer right now. >> did you see the overbite? >> i think you have an overbite. >> it was fantastic. >> that's very cool. >> they have another really good song. the first song that i down loaded from them was from the
9:02 am
anna sun album. >> we've got a great story to start you off with today. a ceo in seattle has taken a pay cut. he was making a million bucks a year at the company he founded. dropped himself down to $70,000 a year so he could raise the salaries of his employees. take a look at his announcement a surprise announcement at a staff meeting. >> okay. so we have a really exciting situation here. and we're going to have a minimum $70,000 pay rate for everyone that works here. >> that is dan price. he's the ceo of gravity payments a credit card payment processing company he started out of his dorm room in college when he was 19 years old. has been very successful. here's how his employees reacted to that announcement yesterday. >> i can move out of my mom's house. >> i have this goal of being a 21-year-old homeowner. and i'm going to reach that now. and i'm stoked. >> i heard from some of your employee who is said i can move
9:03 am
out from living with my mom i can buy my own house. what do you think when you hear that? >> just gratitude. you know? i mean, i think that this is a responsibility. it's one that i really appreciate. >> should point out this isn't a massive company with a lot of cash laying around. where there's a mountain of money out there. this was a real sacrifice by him. especially went from a million dollars personally down to 70 grand a year. it came off an article saying money doesn't make you happy, but there is a baseline where you can get the most basic things. >> like move out of your parents' house. >> $70000 is the point people aren't stressed out about money as much. it's amazing. i love it. it was great to get to know him earlier here. it really makes you think. you wonder if other ceos will have to take a look around and say hey could i be doing something like this too? think about the motivation it
9:04 am
gives your employees as well. who's going to leave a company that their boss is making the same as you and -- >> i think of ben and jerry. they were early proponents of that. i believe they still do that. >> good for dan price. another ceo story that jumped out at us, facebook's march zuckerberg did a q & a on facebook yesterday. he was asked how many hours he works. he said probably no more than 50 or 60 hours a week. that surprised some people. >> but he did say if you talk about the mission, it's probably -- he does it all the time. >> 24/7. yeah. >> we were talking about it and we said it is a brick and mortar but it isn't. it's technology based. so he can work from anywhere. so time spent in the office versus as he pointed out overall time spent. >> and 60 hours isn't anything to shake your head at either. >> no, it's not. that's a lot of hours. >> we asked you in the orange
9:05 am
room if you're a full-time employee, how many hours a week do you work? most said 40 to 50 hours a week. that's what we expect. 50 to 60 hours a week, 22%. 60 to 70, 5% of you. and more than 70 hours a week, 4%. >> we heard from a lot of teachers who like so many others take their work home with them. so you can't tally up those hours spent and just thinking about work. you know you just cannot unplug. you're thinking about the next day, checking grades, the kids. >> leila's high school uses a software called people path. i get updates on her grades and tests. and these teachers are filing that all the time. i get them at all times of the day and night. they're constantly working. >> working around the clock then. >> you can't disconnect anymore. >> so we talked about this yesterday. the mystery continues but i think it's getting solved pretty quickly here. okay. so yesterday we showed you what
9:06 am
was referred to as a meltdown and that is putting it mildly from actor dennis quaid. a lot of conversation. was it a real meltdown? a fake freakout? just to remind you, here's a snippet. >> you're not even watching anymore! >> dennis. >> don't [ bleep ] dennis me! i am doing my job here! i'm a pro! this is the most unprofessional set i have ever been on! this is [ bleep ]! >> keep in mind, that's the safe for work version of it. there's a version -- this is the cleanest part of this. so some people thought maybe it might be part of a prank. jimmy kimmel is known for his pranks. here's what jimmy said last night. >> when i woke up this morning, i was being blamed for it. there are two dozen articles online, thousands of comments suggesting that this is a prank video and i'm responsible for it. i have to say, it's disappointing. you play 50 pranks and all of a sudden people don't trust you anymore. did anyone ever consider that
9:07 am
maybe dennis was doing voiceover for a new cartoon? >> what the [ bleep ]! and this [ bleep ] head wanders onto my set. i can't even get a line out -- don't [ bleep ] that you were here. you're not even watching anymore. >> okay. that is hilarious. but the question still remains because there's been no word from dennis quaid or his representatives. i hope it's not real because the thought of someone talking to other people like that just horrifies me. but we think it's real. or have you changed your mind? >> by now you would expect -- >> unless this is an elaborate prank to be revealed later. but it's so mean. >> christian bale had that freakout and they turned it into a spectacular bit on "family guy." they used the actual tape. so i'm hoping that seth macfarlane will take this and run with it.
9:08 am
>> there's still a possibility it's a prank yet to be revealed. >> i think it was so intense to be fake it went so far with it, some of the things he said. >> some of the words he used. >> he was all in. >> do you think he knew he was being recorded as well? because you're not listening to me and it looked like whoever it was -- it just seemed like he was playing to the phone and then the phone slowly drops down. >> again, dennis if you're watching give us a call. >> break the news here. >> if it's real, call us because we're scared. if it's a prank, come in. >> either one. >> that was a frightening meltdown. >> i like that. >> you like it? >> i like it. he was all in. >> he was. >> if that was real -- it was epic in its intensity. >> is it worse than christian bale? >> oh yeah. yeah. >> he really talked to other people like that that he was working with -- >> yeah. i still think it's a jimmy
9:09 am
kimmel thing. he's going to reveal the big thing. >> i hope you're right. >> speaking of news. >> i thought this was going to be huge. abba had created this website. i'm a huge abba fan. >> we know. >> i even went to the museum. >> we remember. >> you remember that? but anyway -- >> roll the video. >> no. let's -- >> yeah. >> yeah. >> i thought there was going to be this huge abba announcement because bjorn said tune in for something coming up. >> like a reunion? >> well, everybody was thinking reunion. he said i've got an exciting experiment to announce. so everybody was thinking reunion. all right? because it's been decades and everybody's been wanting it. but it's not a reunion. >> what is it? >> it's not a reunion. >> what is it? >> what they are doing instead is they are announcing they're
9:10 am
coming out with a theme restaurant. it's a mamma mia style restaurant. it's only in stockholm, but it could be -- >> i wonder what dennis quaid would say about that. oh. oh, my gosh. >> you're not listening to me al! >> are you serious? >> you don't like the idea? i think it would be fun. >> greek style tavern. >> greek style? aren't they swedish? >> well, because mamma mia. >> i'd rather just go to ikea and have the meat ball. those are good meat balls. they have vegetarian ones. >> yeah. >> if you want go to stockholm, it's opening in january. sadly the broadway musical you know is closing here after 14 years. 5,765 performances. >> come on. that would be fun. >> the reunion is not happening. >> what's your favorite theme restaurant? do you not have one? dave & busters.
9:11 am
>> the kids like dave & busters. >> do you have a favorite? >> ed bedeviks in chicago. >> that's iconic. >> speaking of iconic, of course we all -- april 15th tax day. death and taxes. good news. there are some freebies and special deals to help you celebrate filing your taxes. for example, great american cookie the franchise, they're giving one free sugar cookie per customer. that's nice. hard rock cafe if you sing karaoke you get a free legendary burger between 5:00 and -- >> i'm in. >> are you? all right. how about "dancing queen"? >> there you go. >> and i get a free burger for this? i didn't know this was happening. >> all from the hard rock cafe. >> thank you. awesome. >> what's that burger called? >> that's our legendary burger.
9:12 am
>> onion rings. ooh. who wants those? >> lettuce, tomato. >> fries. >> thank you. >> you're welcome. >> thank you. >> thanks. >> happy tax day, everybody. isn't that an oxymoron? we've got a couple of these out west. we've got this upper level low spinning bringing snow to the rockies. temperatures 35 degrees colder than usual, winter storm warnings. and as this moves out to the east and south on tonight into thursday, severe weather pops up ahead of it. so large hail damaging winds, risk of tornadoes from dallas, houston, del rio all the way up into omaha. so really a lot going on. snowfall amounts, some places picking up 18 inches of snow. right now lots of sunshine in san francisco. 59 degrees. upper 50s right now in san jose with hazy skies on our way today

10:14 am
kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® has been prescribed more than 11 million times in the u.s. and that number's growing. like your guys' scores. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring, and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®. you may be able to get up to 12 months at no cost. i get out of work, and i go to the store, and somebody says, smellin' around, "i smell cookies." i said, "oh no you just smell me, i just got out of work that's honey bunches of oats, that's all." i said "don't eat me now." ♪ smile, kevin. it's spring. flowers are for girls. come on.
