this is the guidance for shutdown furloughs. we are going to put a link to io at our website at myfoxdc.com. it's answers to all kinds of questions. people can get answers to thethe questions. we found a couple of these that we thought were interestingsting would apply to a lot of people. first on take another job, workers are still employees of the federal govern. while they're on furlough. and the rules on outside employment continues to applyins for this.for that means they can't take another job, but it depends on n which agency they work for. there's specific supplemental rules that require prior approval for outside jobs and some prohibit it.om ofe course, check with your agency rules, it's going to depend agency to agencies. now on getting unemployment benefits. some states require a one week waiting period for furloughed workers to be eligible as for unemployment, and one expert
7:35 am
told fox 5 news, it really depends on the state that youta are in. take a listen. >> should you apply for unemployment? absolutely. the rules of unemployment is the furlough has to last at leastt seven days and then you canu start applying. i would recommend you start looking into the process now figuring out how to do it. unemployment is state specific. it's a federal program, but it is defined in the rules and thee rules are defined by the state. i would check with your local state. >> that was financial analysts,l she took your questions lastons night on fox 5 news at 5:00. her entire report is full of all kinds of great information, than isfo posted at our website at myfoxdc.com as well.. just search unemployment. bottom line here, while furloughed workers probably cannot take an extra job, they should be able to get unemployment compensation. so they will be able to compensated in someway, instead, of just being feeling as though their hands are tied and they have to sit at home which isn't

8:50 am
as i'm reading it realize that z lot ofe it is parallel with t.v industry in general. it's ain very cutthroat busines. specifically looking back at what is arguably the biggest star starring network, emril agassi. talk about how he was let go. >> it wasn't easy. >> first of all the book is is mauler than smallerthan a bread. >> i know as somebody who is on t.v. it's a brutal business.nes. emril had a ten year run that was first show that put the food network on the map when it started in '97.'97. and as his demographics, as his viewers got older, the network started losing little interest,e and also that show was on every night at prime time and scriptst the corporate owner is not the biggest fan of a lot of spendin on programming.
8:51 am
so with half the budget going t hibus show, even though he was man who put the network on the map, and spam and let's take ita up a notch, they knew his time was coming to a close. as they explained that to him, he refused to believe it. in the scene i have to open thee book. night when on the the show was over, still thinking he was about to be rescued. it's kind of like benching an ancient quarter bafnlg it was b. it was difficult to watch, and he deserved better. >> you could feel the tension reading the book and as i read those passages you could feel that.th >> most of the chefs spoke for this book.. >> sandra lee who the governor of new york girlfriend only gav me a little bit. the prim a donna's of the network didn't give me, but most people gave me long, honest interviews. there's a confusion betweension
8:52 am
chefs and cooks, because the network in the 90s was about chefs, and that is what emril used to be and people like bobby flay and mario batali came from that tradition. basically 9/11 created a hunger for comfort food that you got g more cooks, more professional amateurs. >> which brought about the rachael rays, i was reading tha portion of the book, how she came along after 9/11 and looking behind the scenes at what was going on. she was really a natural that came on board and really is very business savvy, just that kind of her second nature. that is just the way she is. >> she is also a real hard worker. she seems really sweet on television, but she is a fierce worker. there was a time in new yorkew when she had to leave the city because she endured two brutal muggings, and it's when she left
8:53 am
the city and went back to live with her mother that she once overturned a car on her way to work and was covered in gasolin and showed up to work. she found her way on to locall television, quick meals and people recipes and finally wasly discovered basically on a radio show, and then di did a quick st on the "today" show and found her way back to new york. it focus fierce little stories and touching things of peopleof like that. >> i wanted to make sure to re touch on this, the paula deen controversy that occurred backe in june and food network having to let her go.. i'm assuming that book went to print before this all happened, or did it? is there portions of it that ar in there that you get the back story here. >> luckily i'm such a slow writer and typical journalist that i didn't get the book done in time which alleyed m allowed
8:54 am
a good portion of it stuff. i had a week as that was going on. i had a stuff there.ff the back story is her show wasws getting less ratings, the network was not taking a cut of her profits because she had a sharp agent. and the the diabetes deal she had, the queen of butter and sugar was taking $6 million toi endorse a diabetes drug. which she had never made publici that she had a diabetes. that made the food network of not being thrilled of being in business with her. when the network controversy happened, it was time.as the biggest surprise peoplel who think are the network fans will find out of this? >> some of the best shows of the network were developed -- were developed before the script -- the company who bought it. it's sad to see, but hopefully they will find some new formulas that we can fall in love again
8:55 am
with this network which so many people love. >> absolutely. >> as someone who watches as well. i will continue to watch and continue to read this book. it's very interesting so far.g o >> the author from scratch inside of the food network. thank you for talking with us today. we appreciate it. >> thanks, sarah. sanctionthanks for loving the b.
