6:03 pm
this city suffered and were implicated by the gun shot by one man. >> heidi, this is interesting because the bishop alluded to how much suffering the city of dallas has gone through in these 50 years. >> reporter: right, after that day, tony, dallas earned the reputation as the city of hate because it set the scene, it was the city that hosted the assassination of jfk, and now the city has been trying to redeem itself. that's exactly what it tried to do here. the ceremony put together made of people of dallas funded by private donation. we saw people here, some who had been here to witness that assassination on the day, others much younger folks, school children, the dallas school

oswald. she was 11 years old at the time. her grandmother ran a boarding house where oswald was staying six weeks before the assassination. papat hall now owns that house. she gave us a tour. >> he was just a regular guy. >> reporter: she knew him when she was 11. she and her brother saw lee harry oswald almost every day for six weeks at her grandparents. they ran a boarding house for 14 people. this house has not changed much in 50 years. the tv, piano, stove and most of the furniture is the same as when oswald stayed here for $8 a week. >> the table and all that is original. and this is his room. >> reporter: just 5 x 14. space for a twin bed, nightsta nightstand, wardrobe closet and a dresser. >> he played ball in the front
6:07 pm
yard with my brothers a lot. with me being a girl, we didn't play. but he was a quiet, soft-spoken man. >> reporter: a couple of weeks before the kennedy assassination hall said oswald did something she'll never forget. her brothers mike and howell had gotten into a physical fight in the front yard. >> lee got up off the porch, broke them up, sat them on the stairs, and sat down between them, and he looked at them and he says, i want to tell you two something, this is important. your brothers, you need to take care of each other, and you need to love each other. and never do anything that would harm another human being. >> after the assassination... >> well, my grandmother was
6:08 pm
ashamed that she had such a person living here. >> reporter: officers from the fbi came and took what he had at her grandparents. >> they took everything out of the drawer, the closet, anything that was in the nightstand. they dumped it on the bed, grabbed the corners of the sheets, folded it together and walked out the door. >> reporter: she was offered $500,000 for a home that would normally bring in $100,000. but she said, hey, i'm not selling a house. i'm selling history. so far no serious offers. just like the texas book depository that house is a hourist attraction. >> del walters spoke with mike
6:09 pm
moriel. he talked about kennedy's contribution to the american civil rights movement. >> there are lee against of full-page ads before john f. kennedy arrived in dallas telling him not to come, to go home. there is no doubt that his support for civil rights cost him political support and gained him the affection and important piece in history, let the word go forth on this day as we note the 50th anniversary of his untimely death that it was president kennedy who introduced civil rights legislation in congress. it was president kennedy who got the nation started on this very important journey in the sense of presidential leadership. i think what he also did was establish the idea that the presidency has an important responsibility and role when it comes to building a nation for
6:10 pm
all americans. >> in the president's honor a photo exhibit in new york city is open and it includes pictures from bystanders who were in dallas on this day in 1963. al jazeeral jazeera gives us a . >> reporter: their images taken by americans wishing to shake his hand or at the very least get close to the charismatic president. >> this sense of intimacy and desire to get close is what fueled all these kinds of personal photographs. pictures of john f. kennedy taken bye-bye standers adorn the walls in new york, taken at a time when cell phone cameras were not imagined. >> how is this different from iphones. >> i'm making the argument that this is pre-history of citizen journalists as we know them today. >> reporter: the most famous was
6:11 pm
taken by marianne, her picture of jfk's assassination circulated on wire services within hours. what is today known as going viral. >> this is the photograph that went out on united states press international. this photograph was in newspapers and television stations around the world. >> this is the only photograph that captures the exact moment of impact. >> to my knowledge, yes. it's the photograph that shows the unique look across the grassy knoll. if you look closely in the photograph you see shadowy figures. it has generated the most debate. and is pre-produced in all the conspiracy books related to the assassination. >> reporter: television stations went into continuous coverage in the aftermath of kennedy's dea death. >> the intersection of these two
6:12 pm
types of photographs where people took photographs of their own television sets to remember the moment as they witnessed it on television. >> reporter: the presumer shoo shooting of lee harry oswald. >> they put them into scrapbooks. they saved them. they saved the magazines, newspapers, so there was a very personal relationship to this event. people trying to understand the news in their own lives. >> now pieced together history. >> and you are looking at a live picture of the eternal flame burning for jfk at arlington cemetery. literal in the program we'll walk you moment to moment through this day 50 years ago. we'll have much more coverage on the death of john f. kennedy. if you would like to see it it's there on the website at
6:13 pm there is much more to report on this day. secretary of state john kerry is traveling to geneva to join the negotiations of iran's nuclear program. optimism on this deal is very high. phil ittner is in geneva for the latest. >> reporter: the mood here in geneva is no longer a question. it is no longer cautious optimism. there is a real sense of anticipation that a deal is imminent. the news that secretary of state john kerry is expected to fly in, expected here in the morning saturday morning has are the t atmosphere that there is a deal ready. and it is the wording of the agreement, not the substance,
6:14 pm
that has been gone ove over and over. the question whether or not iran will get sanction relief on some sort of agreement on two primary issues seems to be afoot. those two primary issues include the iraq nuclear heavy water plant that produces plutonium as a by-product. the other major issue that has been outstanding is the surplus of enriched uranium. we are on the first step, a six-month trial period that would ultimately lead to a final and complete resolution of this issue. nobody is saying that this is the last, they're saying this the first step, but this important first step looks as though it's about to happen.
6:15 pm
>> afghan president ha hamid kai is rejecting the u.s. security agreement to take place by the end of this year. tribal leaders are reviewing the agreement. karzai wants to delay designing of the deal until after afghanistan's elections early next year. >> we have negotiated in good faith. we provided the assurances that president karzai has sought. and we believe the text before the loya jirga represents a strong agreement. >> in egypt thousands of muslim brotherhood supporters took to the streets again. protests turn violent when security forces cracked down using tear gas. the protest marks 100 days since the bloody days since the pro morsi sit-ins. more bodies have been found in
6:16 pm
the republic of a partially collapsed supermarket in latvia. at least 50 people died when the roof caved in. it was in the capitol riga. the supermarket was hurt when shoppers and several firefighters were trapped when another part of the roof collapsed. three of them were killed. they have declared three days of mourning. >> meteorologist: snow, icy wet roadways across much of the southern roadways. we look for sleet, snow in matters of oklahoma and texas. we'll have tough travel conditions as we go to the south. it looks like a big rainmaker for southern california. but you go to the mountains and that's where we have so much snow coming down. we've got winter weather warnings across the board. this is from parts of albuquerque. now not in albuquerque proper, that's where we're getting a
6:17 pm
rain-snow mix but we're getting a lot of snow in the mountains. arizona to colorado, and we work our way into the valleys where they're concerned about winter weather there as well. especially as we go through thanksgiving, we have big problems when it comes to winds, too. the winds we're focusing on are in california, sacramento and the sierra nevada. this is where we're getting those wind gusts at 50 and 60 mph, sometimes higher than that. the basic weather make up is high pressure that is building up to the basin and it is just channeling those winds through the valleys, this is what we call locally. it's a down hill wind that comes out of the northeast. they call it mono winds. you'vyou havewe'lltell you mores specific about the way it snows coming up. >> i don't think i've heard of that, just saying, when we
6:18 pm
return we'll tell you why your next flight could be really chatty. the anniversary of jfk continues with a detailed look at the day he died.
6:19 pm
6:20 pm
>> say it ain't so. the peace and quiet of the skies could soon be a thing of the pass. the government is considering easing restrictions of using cellphones on planes, are you kidding me? john terrett is here to explain. >> reporter: this is aimed at you. >> yeah, yeah, that's good. that's good. >> reporter: the fcc banned cellphones on commercial flights back on 199 is because of concerns jamming ground stations. they considered lifting the ban in 2004 but they didn't because the technology then was still
6:21 pm
not quite in place. also it was too soon after 9/11. but today technology is improved, and the cell phone power will be attached to the plane to transmit and receive cell phone calls. cell phones are used on planes for calls and data. but here the whole idea has created a bash las a backlash ag passengers who want a quiet flight without being stuck in a seat next to a babbling passengerrer. >> most of my travel is work, so it's very difficult to unplug. >> passengers do not want that. passengers do not want cellphones, and i can promise you flight attends don't either. >> the idea was floated today, and tradition there was already a petition on the white
6:22 pm website. and fcc chairman tom wheeler said he looks forward to working with his colleagues, the faa and the airline industry in review of new mobile opportunities for consumers. the fcc is going to vote on weather to allow public consultation. after that, the public comment period will go through, then they could vote to move this plan quite quickly. it is thought maybe it less than a year. of course, airlines won't be obligated to deer equipment to allow cell phone calls, but once one does, probably they all will. and here comes the friday pun, a quick 40 in 40 winks at 30,000 t may be a thing of the past.
6:23 pm
this was posted on twitter, while i don't think phones interfere with the plane i don't want to hear people yammering away on the flight. and brian wrote on facebook, i could not imagine being on a long flight with someone talking about pointless stuff. tony mitchell had this to say a bit of advice, then put on some headphones and listen to whatever you want. some snark from social media. >> another record for the dow. it's 41st so far this year. let's get to ali velshi with all of this. ali is the host of "real money" coming up at the top of the hour, and a lot of this i understand may have been driven by some encouraging jobs information, is that correct? >> reporter: i couldn't tell you every day there is a new record on stock market i just run the tape from yesterday's conversation. this is not live. so i can't tell pup we just run you.we just run a tape.
6:24 pm
we never talk about this. we've known each other for many years, and we never talked about jolt. jolt is a measure that is used to job openings, and overall hires. it stand for job openings and labor turn over. it's in an official report, and it shows employers before september were enthusiastic about hiring and job openings. it was 8-point% higher than last september. the number of hires in america, 4.6 million in september, that's 7-point higher than a year before. we get the regular unemployment rate and these take a little longer. we just got this information for september. and it shows employers were actually pretty robust for september. >> then we have october, the shutdown, ugh.
6:25 pm
don't get me started. we just heard this jc penny being kicked out of the s&p 500. >> this company has had trouble for a very long time. it was a troubled company already. the board hired ron johnson who was in charge of apple's retail strategy. apple has a good retail strategy, jc penny is not apple. it didn't make sense. they alienated their core consumer. they got rid of ron johnson, and they have not been--they have improved a little bit since then, but the stock has been thrown out of the s&p 500 which is worse for the stock. if you're in the s&p 500 people have to buy your stock if they buy index funds. that's going to hurt the stock even more. >> i can't wait to see your program. "real money," with ali velshi right here on al jazeera america.
6:26 pm
>> michael eaves is here with a preview of sports headlines. and this is another story from the police. >> reporter: it's starting to become too frequent. charged with third-degree assault after allegedly kidnapping his girlfriend and kicking her in the chest in an n altercation. the kidnapping charge has since dropped. he's expected in court decembe december 2nd. avalanche have yet to make any public statement about today's news. in the nfl, richie incognito met with the league's investigators into the dolphin's hazing scandal for the second straight day today. incognito's grievance against the team over his four-game suspension has been postponed until after the informal

germans in the midst cold war. john f. kennedy and the first lady flew to texas. the two-day five-city tour was a campaign trip of sorts, and the first lady was to make her first extended public appearance since the loss of their baby son patrick months before. but the next day would change history. randall pinkston reports. >> we are still the keystone-- >> reporter: at a breakfast john f. kennedy spoke of the future for his country. >> i think we'll continue to do as we have done in our past, our duty. >> reporter: 30 miles away 19-year-old bue ll frazier drove lee harry oswald to work. oswald placed a package in the backseat. curtain rods, he said.
6:33 pm
air force one landed in dallas. >> the usual welcoming committee presented mrs. kennedy with a bouquet of red roses. >> they would come right up to the fence. >> reporter: mrs. kennedy dressed in a favorite of hers, a pink suit that would soon become a symbol of her quiet courage and profound grief. the motorcade headed fo out. it was a sunny day so the secret service removed the car's top. before cheering spectators craning for a look at the president and the first lady traveling towards an intersection of tragedy. no secret service agent agents n their car at the request of president kennedy who told his detail. >> if i didn't get and shake hands with people i wouldn't get

[ gunfire ] >> there appears as though something has happened. >> reporter: agent hill jumped on the trunk of the presidential limousine as the car accelerated in a desperate rush to the memorial hospital. 30 minutes later the doctors at parkland conceded they could not save the president. >> the flash apparently offici official, president kennedy died at 1:00 p.m. central standard time. 2:00 eastern standard time some 38 minutes ago. >> reporter: the death of president kennedy seemed to be the first dramatic news event to be recorded on television nonstop. for four days the networks
6:35 pm
suspended regular programming to cover the tragedy and a traumatized nation watched. >> he said he saw the rifle being pulled back in. >> reporter: the police quickly found the rifle in this depository. after lee harry oswald left the depository he made his way home and grabbed a pistol. he crossed paths with officer j.d. p tippit. several witnesses saw oswald fire four times, killing the officer before running away. nearly 90 minutes after president kennedy was shot, oswald, a former marine marksmen, was arrested for murdering officer tippitt. then he was accused of shooting the president. >> reporter: flying back to washington with her husband's body mrs. kennedy with vice president lyndon johnson assumed leadership of the nation. >> this is a sad time for all
6:36 pm
people. we have suffered a loss that cannot be believed. >> reporter: then another shock, on live television nightclub owner jack ruby shot and killed oswald as he was being moved from the jail. in washington memorial services began. and americans mourned their slain commander in chief. randall pinkston, al jazeera. >> it is one of the most enduring images of that day that iconic pink suit jacqueline kennedy was wearing on the day the president was shot. the truth is it won't be seen for decades because the pink suit worn by the first lady is being held at the national archives out of public view. it is still bearing the dark stains of jfk's blood and at the kennedy family's request it won't be seen in public until the year 2103, and only then
6:37 pm
with their approval. later i spoke with professor mary francis berry. she is also the former chair woman of the u.s. commission on civil rights. i asked her about kennedy's evolving views on civil rights during his presidency and his complicated relationship with martin luther king. >> what happened with kennedy, with jfk, was that he was made to pay attention to civil rights. the freedom rides, when they happened, everything was so bloody and the justice department, you know, had to do something. and the sit ins, and then old miss and all that violence that took place, the justice department had to do something. he was forced, and that's what happens in social change, you have to force presidents and public officials to do things. so he traveled the road from that beginning, and thinking
6:38 pm
things wouldn't work out. and sort of dissing as we say these days martin luther king every time you try to get him to do something. to a point whenever the letter from birmingham jail and all that happened in birmingham he gave the speech about the civil rights issue being a moral issue, and then deciding to do something. yes, he was reluctant to get involved but then eventually he was made to get involved. >> how do you characterize that relationship with martin luther king. you touched on it just briefly. expand on it if you will. >> martin was in the early years disgusted with jfk, if i might say that. he was disgusted with him in a sense because he couldn't get him to pay attention. martin didn't think the movement would die out. the troubles were too great, the treasurpressure and the things y
6:39 pm
were doing. he saw it as a moral issue from the beginning. one of the things that sticks in my mind was when martin tried to get the president to make an announcement on the anniversary of the emancipation proclamation of 1963, that he was going to introduce the civil rights bill. and in the white house they thought that was laughable. they had a ceremony. they had a big party. they had someone write something that was celebrate tore, but martin luther king didn't even go because he was so disgusted. after a while as events transpired, and the president paid more and more attention martin felt a lot better about it, but it was an uneasy relationship in the beginning. >> why is president kennedy such an icon in so many of the homes
6:40 pm
of african-americans in this country? and to what extent does that point to that speech in june of 1963, the race speech? >> what black people saw jfk as, what the black people saw jfk as, and they should see him that way, they see him as the embodiment of leadership from that turning point when he started to show real leadership. they saw some of it when he sent troops to ole miss. then they saw it in this speech. they saw it in this speech, but black people saw him, and i saw him at that time as somebody who was then crucified, as it were, since he was assassinated, for his beliefs. here was this young vibrant leader, and most black people did not know all the details of what actually happened. they saw him as this young, vibrant leader struck down like martin was struck down.
6:41 pm
it was after he was assassinated that his picture started to show up on the wall with martin and with jesus. and that was the way they saw him. we should see him that way because it was his death, his assassination, which some call crucifixion, that made it possible for lyndon johnson to use that, as use his position as a way to get the civil rights laws passed, which are so important and so crucial to us. so in the end kennedy, who was the reluctant warrior, was absolutely essential to the cause. >> let me just remind you again if you want more of al jazeera's coverage of the 50th anniversary of the assassination of jfk, head over to our website. there it is for you. detroit is the heart of the american auto industry, but the future of hybrid vehicles may be
6:42 pm
converging elsewhere. san francisco has become the hip new hub of experimentation for start up companies hoping to bring excitement to the road. melissa chan has the report. >> reporter: welcome to silicon valley. sure you've got google and facebook but you also have this, a different type of tech start up. they begin production on the first thousand motorcycles next year. >> right now it's a really exciting moment in hardware because there is a new hardware start up revolution going on in the bay area. >> reporter: the company caught the attention of investors including a former executive from chrysler. warehouse, engineers and designers are challenging convention in design and electric battery development. start ups just three years old have come up with high tech innovation that will have real applications for the entire
6:43 pm
automotive industry. it's an exciting time as san francisco takes the lead in the electric vehicle development. tesla has led the electric pack, sales have skyrocketed but it's innovations have come along with unexpected issues including reported battery fires and federal safety probe. still there is no doubt the company is energizing electric entrepreneurs. >> tesla proved that electric vehicles did have a place. >> reporter: motor heads here have come up with crazy creations. >> we are a start up vehicle cop. we're creating self balancing, two-wheel car. >> reporter: the c-1 drives like a traditional car, but the nimbleness of a motorcycle with a normal steering wheel.
6:44 pm
it's creators hope to have the c-1 recognized as an operate vehicle class. such innovations have not only caught the attention of detroit, detroit has come out west. ford lab opened last year. >> we needed to be in silicon valley to get access to the talent base and in particular software. but also to be able to partner with companies, and really just experience i would say work in a very different way than we traditionally work in dearborn. >> reporter: the prototype would hardly appear to challenge traditional automakers but younger drivers prefer alternative transportation rather than bumper to bumper commutes. >> i really feel that technologically san francisco is going to be the next detroit.
6:45 pm
>> for now companies here have more modest designs but if the future is electric, it looks bright in silicon valley. melissa chan, al jazeera san francisco. >> coming up on al jazeera america, an end of an era in the cress world. and michael eaves will be here with a look at the college football weekend. it will be a hot one. every night on my show i break down confusing financial speak and make it real.
6:46 pm

6:48 pm
but his hometown may not be out of the game. >> the game of chess and a cup of tea are the perfect way to start the day in this household. and it's little wonder why. this husband and wife duo is india's first grand master chess couple. they have devoted theirs lives to one of the most intellectually challenging games in the world. >> this is one that is serious business, even for children because some of them come from very poor background, and they don't--they prefer the chess to going to school. so for them it's making a life out of chess. >> through their academy they're trying to nurture the next generation of chess prodigies. india has 34 chess grand masters, and 12 of them come
6:49 pm
from the southern state. >> it will be interesting. >> very few if any of these young chess enthusiasts will go on to compete at a global level, but to get there they not only need to master the right moves but also build the mental stamina that is often needed to outdo the competition. >> reporter: match 10 ended in a draw giving 22-year-old norwegian enough points to win the world championship. but despite the hometown disappointment this tournament has put them on the global chess map. >> more and more players want to
6:50 pm
be like them. >> reporter: when it comes to chess india seems to be making all the right moves, and many here are hoping that it's a matter of time before the country produces another world champion. >> checkmate. >> reporter: al jazeera. >> michael eaves is here with a day in sports. you've got quite a bit of litigation going on. >> reporter: a lot of it has been football but the holy ghost world as well. three weeks after his girlfriend accused him of kidnapping her and kicking her in the chess, the hockey player has been charged with third-degree assault. he was originally arrested for second-degree kidnapping and third-degree assault but the kidnapping has since been dropped. the sentence could be two years
6:51 pm
in county jail. the avalanche have yet to make a statement about today's news. they play the kings in los angeles tomorrow night. the florida prosecutor leading the investigation innage alleged sexual assault involving jameis winston, since there is no timetable for a decision to be made, state attorney william meggs said four or five things still need to be done before any conclusions arconclusions are d. now the decision could come tuesday at the earliest. instead of presenting this to a grand jury, he's expected to decide himself whether enough evidence exist to pursue charges against winston who is expected to start tomorrow's game against idaho. florida state holds the number two ranking behind alabama. with both teams playing out of conference games against over matched opponents it opens the door for other marquee teams to battle for the spotlight this year including lsu and texas
6:52 pm
a&m. john henry smith asked graham watson about lsu's attempt to slow down quarterback johnny manziel. >> no one has been able to slow down johnny manziel. at texas a&m, averages 500-yard a game. close to 50 points a game. this is a team that is built to score. i don't know that lsu can stop it. they may be able to control him a little bit. i think their defense is fast enough. i think they can get into the back field but i think they thought they could control alabama. they did for a half, but then in the second half they disappeared. i don't know what to expect. i think lsu is going to be geeked up because they're at home. i think playing johnny manziel is going to be a great challenge for them. i think they'll be very excited about that. but manziel is going to do what manziel does, and he's going to throw for a lot of yards. that's just who he is. >> let's talk about the match up of big 12 heavyweights, bail ba,
6:53 pm
what will it mean for bailer. >> that's a great game. the game of the weekend. baylor wins, and they're going to leapfrog over ohio state. they're going to be third in the bcs and they'll wait to see what happens. alabama and florida state play cupcakes this weekend. you're not going to expect a loss. but with the stuff going on with florida state off the field. that is interesting and could impact them going into florida, the fc scc title games. auburn is playing really well, so there are chances for one of those two to slip up. if baylor can continue to play the way it's been playing, i think baylor could cosy up to the top two teams in the bcs standing. >> let's talk about the best team nobody is talking about, 9 and 0 fresno state.
6:54 pm
is this the team to beat this year? >> absolutely. this is the team that could continue undefeated. sitting at number 15 right now. i don't see the winner of the aac, which is probably going to be central florida catching up to fresno state. that's going to mean that fresno state will get a bid to the bcs game. whether they'll win that game, it will depend on the match up. this is a team to watch. it's a very strong team both offensively and defensively and it could make some waves in the bcs. >> now to baseball, every fan should expect to go through a met detecter. john skinner said all 30 teams plan to screen every fan in all ball parks although some aspects of the screening will be left up to the individual teams. defending champion st. louis cardinals and david frieze to the los angeles angels in exchange peter bo rgous.
