another disaster in need of answers. last month's deadly mine explosion, committees will be held today. the state's governor will testify as well as family members of those killed. investigators still haven't pin pointed a cause but there is said to have been a build up of methane gas. 22-year-old yeardley love was remembered at yesterday's commencement ceremonies at university of virginia. her degree was received by her cousin. she was found murdered in her apartment on may 3rd. police charged her ex boyfriend george haguely. uva president wants police to tell colleges and universities if the students are arrested. >> many students will be turn add way from college campuses
9:05 am
because of a suspicion. don't forget arrests are not convictions. >> if someone is deemed to be a threat to the community, we would want to know about that. but in terms of what impact that might have on our willingness to allow them to continue to go to school here is another matter and that's going -- that would be taken on a case by case basis. >> if this push works, virginia would be the first state to require law enforcement to notify colleges when a student has -- arrested. investigators are trying to figure out what killed a 6- month-old anne arundel county boy. he was found in laurel on saturday. police say there was no sign of trauma on the body but the home was in disarray. they say the child was with a woman but she was not his mother. they believe his death is suspicious. u.s. park police are investigating after a gunman
9:06 am
targeted a car along the baltimore-washington parkway around 11:30 last night. officers found a car on the shoulder and a person had been shot. victim was taken to the hospital and expected to survive. another person inside the car was not hurt. it appears the shot came from outside of the vehicle but no word on a suspect nor -- nor a motive. the construction project for the chain bridge that was supposed to be finished this weekend is delayed. the rain over the weekend caused problems for the resealing of the roadway and that means only one lane is open in each direction across the bridge. project will likely run through the middle of the week. students at fairfax high school are heading back to school this morning without one of their classmates. the 18-year-old was struck and killed by a car on friday at lee highway and form drive. the driver was also killed in the wreck. sarah simmons is live in fairfax with more. good morning, sarah. >> reporter: good morning, tony. by all accounts people we
9:07 am
talked with here, parents and students, they say 18-year-old abdelouahid chadli was well- known and well loved by his classmates here. he was part of the wrestling team and from what we hear from his family over the weekend that he was hoping to attend george mason university after he graduated and had plans to become a veterinarian. those plans were cut short friday afternoon. she was riding on a bike path along lee highway when an suv veer add cross the highway and crossed several lanes of traffic. the suv was driven by 31-year- old gary thorne who ran into the boy, barely missing a friend with him as well. we talked with students today who say they are devastated and shock by the loss. we also talked with parents trying to help their children through such a difficult time. >> everybody is hurting today. you're supposed to wear back in remembrance of him.
9:08 am
so these are nice people at fairfax. >> it's very sad. they had lost another senior earlier in the year and the circumstances are different but it's still really devastating and they're sorry for emma and not sure how to comfort her. >> reporter: now emma happens to be emma duke, who fox 5 also talked with over the weekend. she was the girlfriend of abduhl who was with him and witnessed that accident. she was uninjured thankfully in the crash. at this point fairfax police are still conducting a full investigation. we're waiting to hear what an autopsy may show on the driver of the suv. they're trying to look at all options and figuring out if it was a medical condition that caused him to swerve or some other factor possibly in the crash. at this point they are still asking people to come forward that may have witnessed this crash. any little piece of information could possibly help police solve this puzzle. we're live here in fairfax
9:09 am
county, sarah simmons, fox 5 news. back to you. 500,000 pounds when you can to me, open doors. >> a new royal scandal. the duchess of york is finding herself in hot water over the release of that undercover video. the news of the world said the duchess tried to sell a reporter access to her ex husband prince andrew. >> gurvir joins us with more on this strange story. >> reporter: i think it's kind of disturbing to see her in that light. the duchess of york, sarah ferguson, was just starting to repair a rocky relationship with bucking ham palace and now she is apologizing for what she called a lapse in judgment. this undercover video captures the duchess of work offering access to her ex-husband prince
9:10 am
andrew in exchange for money. >> 500 pounds when you can to me, open door. >> with prince andrew? >> yes. >> is that our deal? >> yes. >> reporter: the tabloid news of the world posted the video on its website. the newspaper said ferguson spoke to an undercover reporter posing as a business man. she even took $40,000 from the undercover reporter. >> then if you want to go to -- and if you want to do a big deal then we'll do a big deal. >> okay. the cost. >> reporter: andrew is a international british trade ambassador. she goes on to say the prince didn't know anything about the meeting and he is, quote, whiter than white. >> what made her think it could happen. here he is denying that he knows anything about it, and he wouldn't. and then she's saying well give me a lot of money and i'll do
9:11 am
this for you. i find it a bit delusional, actually, as well as disgraceful. >> reporter: ferguson married prince andrew in 1986. they have two children. princes beatrice and eugenia. and since then she's made television appearances, wrote books and appears for weight watchers. and she has struggled and claimed that her divorce settlement was stinky. the report is embarrassing for the duchess but there is no suggestion they did anything illegal. the bucking ham pal he is said she's no longer part of the royal family so there is no comment. those close to the situation said that the relationship that was rebuilding is now perma-
9:12 am
frost. >> you have to say what are you thinking? when someone puts a pile of cash on a table in front of you, do you not get a little bit suspicious. >> poor furgie. >> it's not funny. what did you laugh for? >> because you're so -- oh, fergie. i never liked her that much. >> i like the royal family. it's been a while, do you remember this sound? [ dialing ] >> it was exciting because you were about to get connected. we're talking to one of the pioneers. aol turns 25 years old now and we'll look back at how it's changed our lives. we'll talk about museums opening doors to special free and it's all free. we're back in a moment. right now it's 9:12.

aol is marking a milestone. a quarter century. back in 19 5-the company was called quantum computer services. within ten years it was america online. it had a million members. it was once the leading internet service provider but stiff competition and a failed merger with time warner has taken a toll. in joking us now from aol head quarters in virginia to talk about aol at 25, is company chairman and ceo tim armstrong. good morning. >> hi, allison, how are you? >> i'm doing well. so aol is 25 years old. what is the headline here? success story? what is the headline? >> yeah. i think the headline is in ovation, game changing event for the world, and i think we have steve case on campus, ted leon is back. 3,000 employees on campus, so we are very excited about today
9:17 am
for a couple of different reasons. one is its celebrated last 25 years of -- aol history. and i've try traveled -- traveled all over the world for aol and i think today is a big celebration for us. >> what do we see behind us? is that party? >> we have a giant tent outside of the dulles campus today. we have multiple stations set up outside to have employees interact with alumni. and we will be doing a formal program today where we dedicate three buildings to steve case. one to ted leonsis and this is a chance for the community to react and let people see each
9:18 am
other who haven't seen each other in you'res. >> and the you've got mail and aol became a example of this new phase we are in when aol popped up on the internet in 1985. now you are not alone in this market. how do you stay relevant? a lot of talk about revenue down, how do you fight that? >> sure. well first aol is in a turn around situation. we're continuing to execute the turnaround. we have positioned the company to where we think the future of the internet is going. first phase which was about access and we were a dominant player. and the second access is dominance which is facebook, googles of the world. and now we're focused on bringing content to the platforms. the contents need platform to be successful and we're positioning ourselves in that direction. and as far as the competition goes, competition is what breeds innovation so we love being in a competitive space
9:19 am
and i believe it will make us sharper and have a much brighter future. >> some of the o come out of the company recently, we're talking about the separation from time warner and also quite sadly the human toll, at the peak it was some 19,000 folks and now down to 5,000 employees. and what is the steam lining? >> aol as a company is focused on making sure we have the right level of tal.and focus to be able to compete. when you talk about the competitive landscape and the reason aol has had a lot of challenges is based on what the turn around has been and where there have been layoffs in the past is because it comes down to products and services and the reason aol ramped up is because they were doing a great job bringing products and services to the world. and i think our turn around and the employee base and what we
9:20 am
do in the future comes down to us pioneering and in ovating and doing things that are great for future. so we're hiring a lot of talent right now in the dulles area, in new york, in california and india and dublin and all of the maces across the globe. so i think although we've had to reduce some employees, the employee count here, we are in the process right now of really reengaging with a lot of talent across the globe. >> we have to leave it there. tim armstrong is the aol chairman and ceo live from dulles. thank you very much and happy anniversary. >> thanks, allison. >> if you are looking for a job you can check out the fox 5 job shop. just go to and click on the link on the top of the home page. military nationwide can take advantage of a new deal. more than 600 museums across the country are offering them free admission for the summer. it's a partnership for the

9:31 am
here and there. >> today will be a day of transition we've been talking about where we will see some improvement. maybe one or two peeks of sunshine but tomorrow will be better and then great improvement around here for the middle of the week. hd radar, been watching showers all morning. at last look they were toward sterling and toward dulles airport, leesberg. you can see the showers have fallen apart so that's good news. still one or two spots out of 66; a little light shower. and it's possible you might see a couple of rain showers or drizzle as the clouds will be low and over cast. a little muggy too. temperatures in the 60s but dew point hanging out in the 60s and we continue to be under the influence of the slow from the south to the east. i'll show you the satellite radar. we're not expecting much in the way of shower activity. but look at the cloud cover continuing across the washington area and it's pushing in off the ocean. that's why we're keeping temperatures on the cool side today. off to the south and east, there is our area of
9:32 am
storminess. kind of a subtropical low. but you can see the shower activity is heavy here across the eastern portions of the carolinas and we'll very slowly watch this storm system continue to drift off to the east. so general improvement in the forecast. but not today. more like tuesday or wednesday before we get in on the clearing across the ohio valley. once it gets here it will be summery. i think wednesday's highs will be back into the mid-80s with sunshine. so nice looking forecast here toward the middle of the week. 67 now in washington. 67 at quantico. 69 in fredericksberg. 66 in manassas. and 64 in leonardtown. our highs will only be in the low to mid-70s with the cloud cover holding tight throughout the day. mostly cloudy skies, a few showers possible. 74 for the afternoon high. winds out of the east at about 5 miles per hour. and then remaining cloudy and mild overnight. 63 for the overnight low. let's look at the five-day forecast. a little better tomorrow. more in the way of sunshine tomorrow. 82 degrees and then wednesday and thursday look great.
9:33 am
a lot of sunshine and temperatures in the mid-80s. cooler toward the end of the week. right now, the start of weekend, on friday it looks great. tony, back to you at the desk. so your child is headed off to college or just graduating and isn't sure where the next step should be. job placement professionals have some thought out predictions. joining us is sharia harrington from armstrong franklin career consultants and is a recruiter. and you have been doing this for years, i have been doing recruiting for many years, around 16 right now. and as an off-shoot, i've become fascinated -- i'm very, very interested in the multi generational work force. so how do veterans and baby boomers and generation x get along in the workplace. but i have a strong interest in
9:34 am
my heart for the millennium generation and generation y and where are they going. >> and that's what we want to talk about with this being graduation season and kids look at colleges. and we advertise this as jobs of the future. what are the areas that look most promising over the next 8- 10 years. >> well i know you have statistics from the college board. and those center around i.t., health care and teaching. and we have a shortage in all three areas. a lot of our jobs right now are being outsourced to foreign countries, particularly to india and other parts of asia. and so we have a real dearth of talent, particularly in the science and technology area right here. so we need to home grow that for the future. health care is something that is certainly on top of everyone's mind and we feed to be focused on cultivating that from within. and certainly teachers.
9:35 am
we know there is a huge shortage of teachers. but i think beyond that there are three areas to emphasize to young people when they think about what college majors they should go into and the three areas are foreign language jobs, green jobs, and jobs in the federal government. and i'll tell you what i mean by all of that. so we talk about joshes foreign language based, we are an increasing competitive country. s like russia, india and china, known as the brick countries, are developing at rapid rates and in order for us to be competitive we need individuals who are very strong, have very strong foreign language skills and also the mindset around how these countries do business. so we need to have people who are fluently in chinese, arabic, russian, spanish, even portuguese. >> i don't want to interrupt. but i want to point out, this is very concrete advice that you're giving here.
9:36 am
and it's very specific. and if you want to help yourself get a job in the future, this is something you might look at. >> absolutely. >> and we've shortchanged ourselves in this country in not focusing on those areas. >> that's absolutely right. and there is a book out by charlene shell called managing across cultures and it's called global leadership and they talk about ways to engage with foreign countries. and with the war on terror increasing, the skills in arabic are going to be important. with the hispanic population growing, that is important as well. and we have green jobs. that should go without saying. and we seek solar, wind, nuclear, power, we need environmental scientists and engineers. again the science and technology is important. and also that should be appealing for a lot of generation y who want to sort of save the planet. that's a real criteria for them, a value for them.
9:37 am
and then thirdly and finally would be the federal government. number one, the government is expanding. we though that. >> like it or not. yes, it is. >> and in addition to that, it is predicted by 2012 we are going to have a shortage of 600,000 federal jobs because of the mass exodus of retiring baby -- baby boomers who are walking out the door. so they are trying to back fill those positions. and the nice thing for some people is that it's very stable and also you can use those degrees in so many different areas. whether you want to work for the department of agriculture or c.i.a. or health and human services, your degree will be relevant. >> we'll post some of this information on our website at again, very specific, very good information for people. and if they want to find more information, what should they do? >> for more information, again
9:38 am
i would go to managing across cultures, culture is the name and there is another book to read called the world is flat by thomas freedman and it talks about indispensable jobs of the future. >> i've read that one. yeah, that's good. thank you. the delate over maryland slot machines heading to court today. plus another death in britney murphy's family just months after the actress' death. we have details coming up later.
