tv Today NBC March 23, 2016 2:07am-3:00am EDT
from nbc news, this is "today" with hoda kotb and kathie lee gifford. live from studio 1-a in rockefeller plaza. hello, everybody. it's tuesday, march 22. we have lou with us with live changers to help you out around the house. then we have ryan scott, one of our favorite chefs. what is he going to be cooking up for us? >> we're going to figure that out.
your trip to israel. obviously, one of the most spiritual places on earth. i cannot wait to see this. at a time we could all use a little more faith with what's going on in brussels, belgium. >> a lot of people who i was, you wake up in the morning and often, you go through a morning thing and whenever you wake up and you turn on the tv, it was around 4:20 that i broke here in new york. and we saw the terrorist attacks in brussels that happened around 8:00 a.m. during the height of morning rush. there was explosions at the airport, on subway systems, and the casualty number is fluid. when you look at the pictures of that, that's the departure area at the airport. those are ceiling tiles that have fallen down after a couple of bombs detonated there. that's the kind of place, as we've been saying, where you wheel your luggage in to the ticket counter, think of like,
i think that's why you look at these pictures, how horrific this is. anyone who's been to an airport can imagine what that fear must feel like when you're walking into an airport. these two blasts came four days after the capture to have main suspect in the paris attacks. >> europe's most wanted man for four months. >> people have been searching for this guy. and people couldn't figure out this guy and whether these attacks were ordered or inspired by isis or whatever. it's all connected to the exact same thing. >> certainly doesn't matter to the victims, does it? >> no, it doesn't. you wake up and you feel weirdly afraid, just in your normal life. >> have you noticed on the times you've been to europe in the
changing for a long time? i noticed it in paris and london. i don't go that much. i do travel quite a bit. just even something as simple as the concierge saying you know what, where are you going? you'll say and say, don't go down that way. ways that concierges, just give you a map and say, have a nice day. it's been happening for a long time. and for whatever reason, now, they're finally saying, as the prime minister of france said, we are at war. yes, we are. we have been for a long, long time. >> and i think when you see right now, they're still counting how many of the injured, how many have perished in this. sometimes it's one image. a woman walking with her baby in the airport, and for some reason, an isolated image of this scared woman with her child made everything completely crystal clear for every mom who's held her baby and then someone on the road.
belgium's foreign minister said the suspect has been planning to restart something in brussels. not 100% sure whether it was in the works already or in reaction to the capture. >> but i thought they had been on high alert in brussels since the paris attacks. >> they were. they shut down the subways, remember, for the first time and people are like, what are they doing? why are they shutting the subways down? >> now it's back again. anyway, it's a hard thing to do a show like ours. world's problems. so we'll segue this today. you might have reached the saturation point. this is a nice story. it is world water day today and that's why we're drinking water. >> for the first time since the show's inception, pretty much. >> it's about appreciating what we take for granted here. that's the water we drink in and bathe in and we have exchanged
water. to bring awareness to those who do not access to clean water. and right here to say, i want to just pay a little bit of homage to a wonderful group called jars of clay. hunger.org said 2 billion people worldwide drink unsafe water and every day, over 1,000 children die from illnesses caused by dirty water. this is supposed to make us happy. >> no, when you think about the number of people who die from that. it doesn't get attention every day. >> those friends of mine, jars of clay, have started something called blood water. can you go to that? please. jars of clay raises funds to stop the hiv/aids virus and water crisis in africa. they're doing amazing things. the leader of the group was in africa and saw the people there leaning down with their faces in, like, just the dirt. and said, what are those people doing?
>> looking for water. trying to find water. >> it changed his life. he started bloodwater.org. >> it's good for him doing that. the first time i saw the group was at your house. you were raising money for the i got to tell you something. when they sang, they sound like angels. who are these guys, jars of clay. them? and they have, do we have a bit of that song? >> that's called music, hoda. >> i've heard it. just spectacular. it's a big day for the gifford family in the fact that my first born, cody newton, is 26 years old today. that's going to make a lot of people out there feel very, very old. there he is a couple years ago.
there he is at 2 years old, reading to him. it's just hard to believe he's 6'4" now. and there he was wearing his dad's jersey. so he is in oxford right now in england studying. i love you and can't wait until you're home. >> it must be hard. >> it's a big house, empty most of the time now. >> he'll be home soon. >> very soon. very soon! >> i like when you yell. we have a couple of tennis controversies too. they both make us mad. should we talk about the one from california first? or do you want to do this? >> let's do them in order. >> novak djokovic is in trouble. he says the way prize money distributed at matches should be changed he says. he thinks male tennis players should get more prize money than women tennis players. >> likike they did for decades and decades? >> because the matches attract more spectators.
that. because a serena williams match i'm sure packs it as much. he's saying that if you have more of a box office, you deserve more money. no. you'd think for some, they probably do make less because they don't fill the stands. since 2007, there's been this equal prize money thing. that means that the australian open and wimbledon. everybody gets an equal purse. men and women. >> it took a long, long time. he's not the only person to get in trouble in the tennis world. >> this guy, the indian tournament director. was. was, remember was. he was asked a question. i don't know what the question was, but he was accused of making sexist comments this week. let's look at what he told the
>> bye. >> never met an australian that i didn't like. i think i just did. >> until today. >> what was he doing? >> i don't know. >> everybody responded. serena responded saying we as women have come a long way. we shouldn't have to drop to our knees at any point. >> he later apologized and said i made comments in extremely poor taste and erroneous and
>> then he said it was taken out of contest. there's lots of stuff. you can always tell by tone. >> man up. you said it and it was a mistake. maybe he needs to get down on his knees and beg for forgiveness. >> you know what i like about you? >> i think about that. >> what? >> he's south african. >> okay, australia is safe. he's south african. >> we knew he couldn't have been an aussie. battlegrounds last night on "the voice." it was a 34-year-old allison porter. i actually met her years ago when she was on "star search." >> you know her as curly sue. >> she was up against an 18-year-old lacey mandigo. who do you think christina kept? california dreaming on such a winter day
and the sky is gray i went for a walk on a winter's day >> curly, give it to the old lady. all of 34. curly sue. >> let's watch this. >> tough decision. but who is the winner of the battle? you're a strong girl. strong voice. but the winner of this battle is allison. [ applause ] >> allison, congratulations. >> allison's natural ability and her vocals range, incredible.
>> whoa! no one saw that coming! >> good for her. it's interesting, when they got the song "california dreaming" she had never heard of the song and she never heard of the mamas and the papas. >> she's young. you didn't know people in the 1900s who were singers. [ laughter ] >> nobody did, okay? not even frank. don't forget, we're giving it away. hoda did a long time ago. and we could use some spirituality, more of my visit to the holy land after this, everybody. don' t let dust and allergies get betwn you and life' s beautiful moments. with flonase allergy relief, they wont. when we breathe in allergens, our bodies react by over producing six key inflammatory substances that cause our symptoms. most allergy pills only control one substance. flonase controls six. and six is greater than one. flonase outperforms the #1p non-drowsy allergy pill. so you can seize those moments,rwherever you find them.

this week is known around the world as holy week. and on a day like today with the tragedy oversees, so many people are turning to their faith. so we thought it would be fitting to share more of when kathie lee went to the holy land. >> i went to attend the there. i was fascinated what the bible had to say. i went with david who collaborated on new gospel songs
as we hiked this ancient land. israel has been important to me since i was 12 years old when i came to faith in jeshua, jesus. it's a love letter to god's people. glory to jehovah elohim in 07 a.d., there was a huge rebellion in israel. this was one of the last places where the jews made a stance in sedona. it's unbelievable. this is one of my favorite places in all of land. not just because of the massiveness of it, but period was considered one of the greatest est est architects of all time. and he had seven palaces in the north all the way down to here.
now we're right here at mesada. mesada is the second most visited place in all of israel. >> mesada is the greatest symbol of jew wish heroism. >> 967 jews appear either deciding to fight the romans or -- one of the most amazing things being here was my family. this is my son cody. you've probably heard about him. what do you think? >> unbelievable. like no place on earth. >> it really is. is cool, love you. strengthens my heart lengthens my days >> it means spring. it was a natural oasis and still is. of course, david would come here to, first of all, be refreshed from the judean wilderness.
saul. the power of your word >> we are here in what they call the caves of kumeron right off the dead sea. this is where the first parchments were sound on what we now call the dead sea scrolls. every time i come here, i say to myself, this is my favorite place. right now, it's the valley and the region standing on the mt. carmel. it's just a beautiful agricultural spot. i have never been to the actual beach called the beach of the seven springs where jesus actually stood and called out to some fishermen in their boats right over here, not far from shore. that they should come and join
it was peter and andrew, and he same some very famous words. come, follow me, and i will make you fishers of men. and they came and followed jesus. somewhere out there on the sea of galilee during a terrible storm, jesus walked on water. guide me toward the better choice so much of what happened with jesus and the disciples happened along this shore all the way over. lead me on to home love you. i've been coming to israel for 45 years and it never gets, quote, old, you know what i mean? it's a spectacular place.
three of the world's most important faiths. the muslims, the christians, and the jews. it's a place you can't describe. you have to experience it for yourself. so i say to you what they say all around the world. next year. >> how beautiful. >> thanks to our producer and everyone in israel so, so gracious to me. and i ended up spending 11 hours in hadasa hospital. i was so dehydrated. i want to say a special thank you to the arabs, the palestinians and the jews working side by side. saving my life. i am so grateful to them. it's a world class hospital and they're world class people. >> it's as if we were with you. often you do stories and it looks like you're watching a story. that felt like we were with you along the journey. that was really beautiful. >> we're going to have the music
available to you. so check i tunes. it will be coming up soon. >> i liked "lead me." coming up, easter brunch is waiting for us in the kitchen. show us how it's done right after this. yeah, i was just talking about your emergency roadside service and how it's available 24/7 and then our car overheated... what are the chances? can you send a tow truck please? uh, the location? you're not going to believe this but it's um... it's in a tree. i wish i was joking, mate, but it's literally stuck in a tree. (car horn honking) a chainsaw? is a tow truck. day or night, geico's emergency roadside service is there for you. if you run everyday, or if you're young or old. no matter who you are a heart attack can happen without warning. heart attack, a bayer aspirin regimen can help prevent another one. be sure to talk to your doctor before you begin an aspirin regimen.

look at these good bits here. this is called fond. very fond of all of that great stuff. >> what's that? all the burnt stuff? >> it's not burnt. it's juices and deliciousness. >> looks burnt to me. >> if it looks burnt, cover it with these herbs. then nobody knows. >> what i have here is thyme, parsley, and sage. why i add that now, it smells like thanksgiving, right? rosemary and thyme >> i don't know what just happened. so you brown this deliciousness here. >> why do i care? i don't know why i care. >> you take the ground chicken and what i did next to kathie lee, i took the potatoes and diced them. when i dice them, i want to make sure they're cooked all the way through.

40-year-old son -- >> still not going to happen in my house, buddy. it's your house, your rules. if it's something you're not abide by that. if they need to, go to a hotel. >> that's why god made ramada >> if a child is being greedy, are you allowed to discipline? >> if you're hosting an easter egg hunt and someone else's child is being greedy, can you discipline them? >> i cautious against disciplining anyone else's children. but with an easter egg hunt, i would set ground rules up front. maybe set eggs the children can find to help the other children. this is an opportunity to teach your kids about sharing and being fair. if that doesn't happen, nonetheless, do a second hunt for the really little kids and have the bigger kids help the little kids find the eggs.
you're a wonderful person. >> if you're hosting an easter party or seder, can you say -- can you invite only some neighbors and others, and if you get left over, can you say something the >> this doesn't have to be a block party. frankly, people have their own plans most likely. if there's someone you know going to be alone, i'd make a point to invite that person for sure. other people have plans and not likely to be offended. >> it is weird though. if you knew your neighbors were getting together, and you're the other one on the other side. >> just invite them over. >> don't let there be one odd man out. if there's a few you're not inviting, that should be fine. >> please read that. if you're hosting easter dinner
guests overstay their welcome, how can you tell them it's time to leave? >> for sure, you're going to put the end time of the party on the invitation. so we all put the start time but we forget the end time. time. that's fine. but when it's not happening, you offer them a goody bag to leave. >> frank and i just went to bed. you're on your own. >> that works too. >> are we out of time? oh, good, one more. >> this is exciting. if you dislike some of the traditional food served, can you say something or do you have to eat it? >> this is going to be, so the
principle for you to not eat something or you're a life long vegetarian vegetarian, you're not going to violate. but the host is aware why you're not eating it but don't make a fuss. or a special dish just for you. >> bring your own. >> that's a lifesaver.
