but the anniversary doesn't come without problems. this morning, the man behind it, jack dorsey, opens up about his past, its present and its future. and cinderella stories. major upsets ruled day one of the ncaa tournament. >> for the bulldogs! >> so how smart is your bracking looking today, friday, march 18th, 2016. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. >> good morning, everyone, welcome to "today" on a friday morn. remember the godfather and the classic line, fraudo, you break my heart. my version is, seton hall, you broke my heart. >> how smart is my bracket? i think it was f-minus. >> you had one bad pick. >> go wildcats. >> we'll talk about the ncaa
tournament. our top story this morning, so much for spring. it's not going to feel that way, especially on the east coast. temperature about to plunge and a storm is brewing. and this could bury parts of the region in snow. oh, you broke my heart. >> just when i thought i was out, i pull you back in. >> exactly, what's going on? >> we're watching this low pressure system. it's going to be coming up out of the southeast. some severe weather saturday morning down there by saturday afternoon. by saturday afternoon, it's raining in washington, d.c. cold air starts to filter in as this low pressure system develops. rain/snow mix will start from washington, d.c. saturday evening. snow showers by sunday morning for new york city. now, we've got the american model and the european model. they're fairly close early on. as we get into sunday afternoon, sunday morning, you can see they start to diverge a little bit. the european model a little bit closer, the american model further away , the storm will intensify either way.
snow stretching from new york city to maine. heavy snow will continue into new england. gusty winds and it's going to be cold. so here's what we're look at as far as accumulations. current forecast, new york city, philadelphia, on up into northern new england about 2 to 4, maybe 5 inches of snow. heaviest snow around eastern massachusetts on up into eastern maine, anywhere from 10 to 12 inches. the american model, look at this, almost no snow whatsoever. northern maine hits the heaviest. we've also got some in the appalachians. here's what we think, look at all the models, putting them together, about 2 to 4 inches from washington, d.c., new york city and west of boston. boston will see about 4 to 6 inches. the heaviest snow will be eastern maine and eastern massachusetts. the storm hasn't formed yet. we're going to continue to watch it. it's the difference between the models. they're coming together. >> you've got a story on those
two models and how people come up with them a little bit later on. >> that's right. >> al, thank you. meantime, the presidential race being dominated by the so-called stop trump movement this morning. the republican front-runner now the target of conservative leaders. they're trying to block his potential nomination. he's also being targeted by the hacker group known as anonymous. nbc is on the trail for us with more on all of it. good morning. >> hey there, savannah, good morning. we're learning talks swirling at the highest levels about how to handle a possible trump nomination. paul ryan fresh off a dinner with influential donors. all of this as the hacker group takes aim over not just donald trump politics but his personal life. >> now, claiming credit for being thatting donald trump, the group anonymous calling him a would be dictator. >> we are very serious about
stopping any proposed fourth reich by donald trump. >> trump's campaign telling nbc law enforcement is investigating those who tried to illegally hack anonymous' accounts. trying to get attention for their so-called war on trump. in washington, a very different battle to try and stop him. less public, too, after a secret huddle of frustrated conservatives, reassessing how to slow trump down since attack ads like this new one haven't seemed to do much. their plan, first, call for a unity ticket. and if that doesn't work, plot out strategy for a contested convention. house speaker paul ryan acknowledging that scenario looks more likely. >> we're getting our minds around this idea this could become a reality. >> reporter: now taking aim at trump for warning what could happen at a convention if he leads in delegates but doesn't get the nomination. >> i think you'd have riots, you know, i'm representing a tremendous, many, many millions of people. >> nobody should say such things
in my opinion because to even address or hint to violence is unacceptable. >> reporter: while the stop trump movement wants unity, they're not saying who conservatives should unify behind. talk of ted cruz and marco rubio teaming up shot down. >> no, i'm not going to be anybody's vice president. >> reporter: rubio now praising cruz as conservative, as the texas senator faces morse attacks from donald trump. this new photo shopped poster of the movie "liar liar." but cruz may get the last laugh, backed by an unlikely former foe, senator lindsey graham raising money for cruz less than a month after making this joke. >> if you killed ted cruz on the floor of the senate and the trial was in the senate, nobody could convict you. >> reporter: and new this morning, a scare involving donald trump's son eric. suspicious mail sent to his
apartment. sources say it was nothing harmful. and not uncommon for high-profile personalities to receive this kind of thing, but it does show how much attention trump's family is getting, guys. >> all right, hallie jackson, thank you. >> nicole wallace, good morning. >> good morning. >> we keep talking about this stop trump entity as if it's a rething, as if it has a ceo and headquarters. the fact of the matter is, it's still very fractured. while it's trying to get itself together, hasn't it almost missed its moment? >> here was the moment. everyone agreed that after new hampshire, the only way to derail trump was to put him in a one-on-one race, to have everybody but him coalesce behind one candidate. they were all in the race at that point. that never happened. the essential weakness of the stop trump movement is never had
a horse, it never had a strategy and never built a consensus around an alternative. >> we saw lindsey graham who didn't endorse ted cruz but he'll have a fund-raiser for him. i asked the question, what's the temperature in hell, because he himself said hell will freeze over before i support ted cruz but that's where they are in this party, these hard choices. what does it say about ted cruz that actually he may be the person best positioned to stop trump but he can't get the party behind him totally? >> it would have said something much better about ted cruz if he not lost all five contests tuesday night. if he had won, if he had a stronger showing this week, you might have seen more people get behind him. here's the truth about the anti-trump movement. it objects three things about trump. one, his temperament. makes people very nervous. two, the substance, he's not a conservative in the minds of the conservative movement. and, three, they're worried about him filling that vital commander in chief role. hillary clinton, if she were smart, would be wise to go after the first group, people worried
about his temperament, and maybe the third group, people who don't think he is competent to be commander in chief. the stop trump's only hope is if he doesn't reach 1,237. >> you're saying hillary clinton should reach out to the stop trump movement. do you think republicans fear donald trump or dislike him more than they dislike hillary clinton? >> nobody in the elite establishment would admit to being open to hillary clinton but as we've seen time and time again, there's not the deciders. the voters are the deciders. and there are a lot them who want to vote republican. who want to see change. but who are simply uncomfortable with the idea of both trump and cruz at this point. >> all right, nicolle, thank you very much, good to see you. something else on the president's plate, an historic trip to cuba. nbc "nightly news" anchor lester holt will be live in havana and he will have complete coverage. now the fight for the president's pick for the supreme court. nbc justice correspondent pete williams is at the court for us
this morning, pete, good morning to you. >> reporter: savannah, good morning. senators have left town for the easter break, giving merrick garland a break from making the rounds. but republicans insist his nomination isn't going anywhere. it's a supreme court nominee's ordeal, meeting senators one on one, hoping to win them over for a confirmation vote. but so far, the welcome mat is out only at the offices of democrats like vermont's patrick leahy and nevada's harry reid, the majority leader. continuing to insist there won't be any hearing or vote because the next president should choose the nominee. the democrats say under normal rules the nominee would be up for a vote by memorial day. >> people in my state are some of the most conservatives and most liberals say, hey, do your job, give him a hearing, ask him questions. >> reporter: some republicans say they are at least willing to meet with garland, though nothing's been set up yet. arizona's jeff flake even suggested voting on garland while president obama is still
in office if a democrat is elected president. >> i would rather have a less liberal nominee like merrick garland then a nominee that hillary clinton, if she were president, would put forward. >> reporter: the republican leadership put out the word that such an idea is not an option and most in the party are following along. >> i don't think we should be moving forward on a nominee in the last year of this president's term. i would say that if it were a republican president. >> reporter: the white house released this photo of obama meeting with garland and said mr. obama told supporters in a conference call on thursday to make themselves heard and demand confirmation hearings. the supreme court's remaining eight justices are back in the courtroom next week and white house supporters are launching a website to push for garland's confirmation. we need nine.org. matt, savannah. this morning, we're hearing a little more from the alleged american isis fighter captured in iraq, still being held there, and what he's saying about how he ended up with the terror
group may surprise you. nbc's chief foreign correspondent richard engel has that story. richard, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, matt. he says he joined isis but then had a change of heart. a u.s. official told us this morning that because of the american's alleged time with the organization, he does have intelligence. he's the first alleged american isis fighter to surrender to kurdish troops in iraq. >> my name is mohammed. i'm from the united states. i studied criminal justice in college in virginia. >> reporter: in a taped confessional aired on kurdistan 24 tv, the virginian described how he traveled through turkey, linked up with isis in syria and was transferred to the iraqi city of mosul, an isis stronghold. >> my message to the american people is life in mosul, it's really, really bad.
we, the people were controlling mosul don't represent the religion. >> reporter: these statements were made as he was held in captivity. >> i didn't really support their idoly and that's -- at that point, that's when i decided i needed to escape. >> reporter: to escape from isis, he said he crossed battle lines in search of kurdish fighters, knowing they are close allies of the united states. >> at the time, i made a decision to go because i wasn't thinking straight and on the way there, i regretted -- i didn't see myself living in that environment. i would -- you know, i wanted to go back to, to america. >> reporter: a u.s. official
told nbc news isis is facing a growing problem of desertions as the group comes under mounting military pressure and, now, a rare accusation of genocide by the united states. but the charge is mainly a moral condemnation. and because the u.s. is already fighting isis, it's unclear if the rhetoric will change u.s. policy. a u.s. official told nbc news that american personnel have not yet met with quaise in custody but the kurds are debriefing him and passing that information along to the americans. matt, savannah, back to you. >> richard engel in istanbul, thanks. tense on capitol hill at the hearing over the flint, michigan, water crisis. calling for the resignations of the chief of the epa. >> people who put dollars over the fundamental safety of the people do not belong in government and you need to resign, governor snyder. >> this was a failure of got at
all levels, local, state and federal officials. we all failed the families of flint. >> governor rick snyder testified that michigan's department of environmental quality repeatedly assured him that the water from the flint river was safe when, in fact, it was contaminated with dangerous levels of lead. both the governor and epa administrator gina mccarthy expressed remorse over the crisis but mccarthy said because it happened under a state-appointed emergency manager it prevented federal officials from being able to, quote, jump to the rescue. there were some scary moments for passengers thursday on a flight from north carolina to new york city. take a listen. >> just got hit by lightning. >> roger, everything okay. >> yeah, don't send us through there again, it's pretty bad. >> the american airlines flight was preparing to land at la guardia airport here in new york when it flew into some very turbulent skies and then was hit by lightning. the plane was diverted to jfk airport just a few miles away. airline official also say it
landed safely. 55 passengers on board. the faa says it will investigate that incident. a hearing is set on a request to revoke bail for the new hampshire prep school graduate convicted of assaulting a classmate. >> another unexpected twist this morning. he is now admitting he did miss his curfew but says it was for a good reason. a judge must determine, a, what happened and, b, what's the punishment. owen's future on the line once again. >> guilty or not guilty? >> guilty. >> a judge will decide if the prep schooler convicted of misdemeanor sexual assault against a 15-year-old classmate, should be put behind bars for allegedly violating conditions of his bail. it all started after this reporter bumped into him on a boston subway last month around 1:00 p.m. and then tweeted their conversation.
>> he has to take a bus to da dartmouth and be home by 5:00 p.m. >> reporter: a source tells nbc news he thought the conversation was off the record. prosecutors saw the exchange and filed a motion in court saying he violated the conditions of his $15,000 bail. he's supposed to be his mother's vermont home between 5:00 p.m. and 8:00 a.m. prosecutors say he traveled between a nearby bus station in new hampshire to boston at least eight times since october. the question facing the court today isn't where he went, but when he made it home. >> most judges will look at that and say tough, you knew what the rules are, you've been convicted of a crime, follow the rules for your bail. >> reporter: his lawyers say yes, he did travel to boston, and admitted to violating his morning curfew on these occasions, but only to see his lawyers and take classes, classes he wanted to keep private since he's been accosted, insulted and threatened in public. the intense interest in him began last year.
the country captivated by the elite prep school setting where his accuser says the unthinkable happened. >> i was raped. >> reporter: here, her voice disguised, her face hidden. >> you were excited to see her because you wanted to have sex with her. >> no. >> reporter: since that trial, he spoke out for the first time, telling "newsweek," i walked out of the courthouse with my chin up. today, back in the same courtroom where it all began. we reached out to the prosecutor and his accuser but haven't sketched a response. if the judge decides that he did violate his curfew, he could be carried out in handcuffs from the same courtroom where he first pled his case. >> let's get another check of the weather from al. >> all right, we're also going to be watching an area of heavy showers and thunderstorms down through the gulf coast today. slight risk of strong storms from texas to louisiana. plenty of sunshine along the pacific northwest coast. sunny and chilly, making its way from the plains on into the great lakes.

the biggest change from then to now on twitter? >> i think how people use the service. it is the easiest way to see what's happening in the world right now. live. it breaks news for so many people. a lot of people just use it to see what's breaking and what's new in the world. >> it's grown up. has it grown up to be a great kid or, at times, can it be a bratty kid? >> it's grown up to be a great kid. but it reflects what's happening right now and what people want to talk about it with it. >> i should mention, you're not only the ceo of twitter but also the ceo of square, that helps me use my credit card on devices everywhere. >> small businesses. >> how do you manage both of these big tech ceo jobs, which i understand can lead up to a 15 or 18-hour day? >> we have great teams in both companies. i do what i'm good at, which is making sure we're building the right product that serves people in the right way. >> you have been compared to steve jobs.
just shake your head. do you like the comparison? >> he was a true original. i'm a student of his work, life-long student. there is no comparison. >> you know, we look at the anniversary of twitter and we say, congratulations on that, but it has not come without difficulty. the company went public back in 2013. the stock has had a real difficult time. you've lost key employees. it's hard to attract new people to the platform. you've seen the headlines, jack, that say the end of twitter is near. how true is it? on the 15th anniversary, will you be here talking about twitter? >> absolutely, on the 15th, 20th and 30th. it's a fundamental service. we have a lot of heart in the company, a lot of purpose. we understand what we are and what we stand for. we just see this amazing usage globally. >> i asked you, has it become, at times, a bratty kid. there are a certain percentage of people on twitter who seem,

tesla. the american model, it has to provide information for all different kinds of forecasts. like gm makes one platform for 1e several cars. there is more agreement as we go forward. >> if you had to choose one model on a desert island, would bit the american model or the european model? >> i'd have to have an american model. usa! >> usa! >> let's get to your forecast, show you what we're looking for right now. so we are expecting this storm to really start dropping. rain saturday night. by sunday morning, we're seeing a rain/snow mix for washington, d.c. the model diverges a bit. both storms will be intensifying, both models. the european model has it closer to the coast and, therefore, more snow. here's what we look for, as far as the snowfall totals. 2 to 4 inches for new york city. boston, much more. then the current forecast for the american model, almost no
snow in new york city and boston. who will be right? we'll continue to track good morning, i'm meteorologist kari hall. we're seeing some clouds across the bay area, but a live look from sunol, low clouds this morning, also some patchy fog and it's 52 degrees now in san carlos, 55 degrees in san jose, low 50s as you head out the door and 72 degrees will be the high today. a little bit cooler than yesterday but still very comfortable with mostly sunny skies later on this afternoon. the embarrack dare row today up to 63 degrees and 73 degrees today in concord. plaza is sponsored by miracle-g miracle-gro. life starts here. as we said with the chance of snow on the first day of spring, we decided to do mother nature's work for her and bring the new season to the plaza today. check it out. our production team worked all night long, turning our plaza

all the space. >> know where the sunlight is. >> exactly. >> plant bulbs in this area here. is there a right way and a wrong way to plant bulbs? >> absolutely. >> probably planted 1,000 bulbs at our house and they're just starting to come up. >> this is a dalia, i believe. get the growth going. when you get a package, it shows you how deep they go. usually three to four inches. put it down there, cover it up. just like you would a regular plant, water it. >> don't pack it down or anything? >> you don't have to. >> okay. >> the rains will come and pack it itself. >> do you like planting seeds? >> they're great. put it into an old eggshell container. >> start it out there? >> yeah. >> cool. what's here? >> tricks to keep things easy around the house. we travel a lot and don't have people at the house to water our plants you can take a wine bottle, make
sure you clean it out, rinse it out, and then you want to take your cork, throw a hole in it, and dump it upside down. leave it in and it will slowly water your plant. >> you just jam that up in the soil. >> yes. >> it slowly trickles out. >> it'll leak enough water to do the job? >> slowly trickles out. if you're gone for a week, few days, or you forget to water, this is a good trick. >> great trick. >> also, label what your plants are with the cork and stick them right in so you know what your vegetables and herbs are. >> something tells me you go through a lot of wine bottles at home. >> you know -- >> i'm not judging. >> how do you know us that well already? >> not judging. why eggshells? >> they're a natural fertilizer. keep them after you make your breakfast in the morning. crush them up, i just use my hand, put them around. >> why is it good fertilizer? >> it's one of those all-natural things that keeps the soil nice and rich. >> you know how she crushes up and throws it down there, i
taught her all that. >> keep your hands nice and dirty. >> people want to keep pests and weeds away from the garden. you like to go all natural on this. >> exactly. chemicals can get a little dangerous. if you keep all natural, garlic, cayenne pepper, vinegar, mix it together. that will keep the bugs away. wear gloves. with the cayenne pepper, touching your face is dangerous. for the weeds, do the white vinegar and dish soap. spray it just on the weed. if you get it on the grass or the plant, it can kill that. be careful. >> i mentioned at the beginning of the segment, if you're not going to see snow this weekend, it might be good. you have to get past the frost you have to make sure you get past the frost problems before you start doing this. >> if you're in the northeast, don't plant this weekend. snow is good for the garden. it's a natural fertilizer, so it will help out your garden. but, yeah, don't plant this weekend. >> don't rush the process. >> wait to see what al has to say. >> all right. thank you very much. nice to have you here. just ahead, the hottest

things in the right way and not be mistaken. >> you seem to have a fountain of youth inside of you. what's your secret? >> i'm happy. i live a wonderful life. >> she's going around the country doing this, "an evening with sophia loren," and the fans have just flocked to her. all ages are there watching this woman. >> i like how she said, are you a fan? you're like, yes, ma'am. absolutely. >> is this a trick question? >> come on, really? coming up next, break out your overalls and slip dresses. this spring's biggest fashion trends, including, i'm happy, throwbacks to the '90s. yes! first, this is "today" on nbc.
we'r >> all right, we're back, with a look ahead to this season's spring fashion trends. here to break them down is megan, you know her as the always fashionable rachel on usa's "suits." she also runs her own fashion and lifestyle blog. good morning. >> good to see you. >> so excited for spring, we have the whole setting here. >> it looks beautiful. >> all our modes are hagging around in the park, like you do in the summertime. let's start with the dramatic sleeves. that's our first trend. >> yes, this is huge for spring.
look at how amazing. what's fantastic is you can really see. you can play this two separate ways. if you want to dress it down and put on a denim skirt, a heel which is great for spring, or be more dressed up for a nice date night. i life you can have a flare or something more trumpeted. >> should you do something like a little more fitted? >> a little more streamlined, right. >> even with the silhouette of that dress, it's not an a-line at the bottom, it's still more streamlined and straight. so let the sleeve do all the talking. >> the flared jeans are in as well. would you do the flare? >> you could. it's a strong look. you can pull it off. >> all right, ladies, thank you so much. you look beautiful. >> they look great. >> our next is the cutout trend. tell me about it. >> completely. so it's really great. it's like you can take a typical spring floral dress and you have the cutout in the back. at the same time, this open
shoulder is called the cold shoulder detail. a great way to play up work wear that's still conservative. >> plus everyone's shoulders are gorgeous. >> yes, everyone feels comfortable with a little bit of that. with a pencil skirt or something a-line. it's a great way to show skin without being too revealing. >> and did you tell us about this floral dress? >> it's the same sort of spring idea we see in floral trends. iically. then you have a nice cutout detail in the back. it's a little bit open. has two little ties. just taking a basic classic silhouette and modernizing it a little bit. >> all right, ladies, thank you. our next trick. it might intimidate some but you can tell us. it's mixing prints. >> yes. oh, don't they look great. so my rule of thumb with mixing prints, especially if you're feeling nervous about it at first, stick with the same color, right, so we see the stripes have a little bit of navy and white.
the blues in it as well. that's an easy way to mix trends. the same sort of idea happening with this two-piece. like a great floral print. and you know what, leopard, it's another print as well, but it feels like a nice neutral. a great way to mix it up and have fun with it. >> do you have any tips? staying in this same kind of a color story is one way. do you have any other tips? >> yes, absolutely, even though the big full length a-line skirt has more texture that in itself feels like a print. i think also if you do one bold big print, you can do another one that's more classic like the stripe here with a big paisley floral. >> it makes me want to put things i wouldn't necessarily put together. all right, ladies, thank you so much. and finally, be still my heart, i'm so happy, the '90s are kind of my fashion era. >> okay. >> i was into the grunge rock and the whole thing. tell me about this. we have the backpack. >> the '90s are done. your inner donna martin from
"90210." slip dresses are huge and the choker's back. i haven't gotten myself there yet. >> i have two chokers. they're just ready to come out. >> that's amazing. a great cropped leather jacket. of course a pop of a really strong neon like the yellow. this look is quint esen chsenti '90s. overall, a grown-up version of that. a great silk blouse. it's really modernizing a trend that you love so much. >> i did. i had a real baggy pair of overalls in the '90s i never took off. i didn't think overalls would be back. can we have all our models come out one more time so we can take a look at this beautiful spring setting? megan, thank you so much. ladies, you look fabulous. by the way, you can look forward to a new season of "suits" on usa with megan when it returns this summer, al, over to you. >> thank you so much. birthday time. we'll introduce you to some amazing folks from all across
