command ls -la in git

Last Modified: 2015-02-26
I am following a tutorial video on git fundamentals. I am working in Windows 7 powershell (version 1.9.5.msysgit.0).

After executing >git init ,apparently it creates a .git directory which contains the repository and all its meta data.

The video displays the meta data by executing >ls -la as you can see on the image below.

I am expecting the same but I am getting the message also on the image below.

Question: How can I see the similar information as this demo video?

Also, the video display <master> at the command line area which I do not see on mine. FYI, I have started PS as admin.
