7:02 am
california are talking about an apparent meteor that lit up the night sky. >> was it flashes? >> it was bigger than that. it lit up the sky. i think it was a meteor. >> records are being set high above the earth. >> the olympic torch is in outer space for the first time. >> talk about being thrown into the deep end. two tiger cubs were given a swim test. >> look at that? >> somebody has a souvenir. >> that's a great. >> i love barbara walters. the rest can go -- >> and all that matters. >> kevin ware he is back. >> the tragic injury during the ncaa tournament last year. >> are you kidding me? who says there are no storybooks? >> -- on "cbs this morning." >> the new mayor of new york city is a progressive democrat with an african-american wife who used to be a lesbian.
7:03 am
as fox news reports, the apocalypse is upon us. this morning's "eye opener" presented by toyota. let's go places. captioning funded by cbs welcome to "cbs this morning." good morning norah. >> hey, good morning to you, charlie. >> we begin with the nfl. for your the first time the miami dolphins players are talking about the bullying scandal rocking the football world. a player is suspended after threatening messages to a fellow teammate. >> meanwhile a special council is looking into the allegations of bullying and we look at the father of the player who says he was the target. mark good morning. >> good morning, norah and charlie. ted wells is the one who will lead it. his employment understand scores what a black eye this controversy has become for the dolphins and for the league.
7:04 am
nfl commissioner roger goodell says ted wells has already begun looking into the bullying accusations. richie incognito repeatedly sent his teammate martin text, voice, and e-mails that contained racial slurs. >> we will take all necessary measures to fix it to ensure that this doesn't happen again. >> there were more allegations of racism against incognito. nfl hall of famer warren sapp said it happened to him during a game. >> so he's calling you the "n" word. >> yeah. he kicked me. one time i said really? >> richie didn't use that type of language. >> ryan tannehill is the team's quarterback, the man he and incognito work side be side to depict. >> he gave him a hard time, messed with him, but he was the first one there to have his back
7:05 am
in any situation. >> yesterday team officials would not address reports that dolphin officials told incognito to toughen up martin. after he left the team abruptly last week he left for california to be with his family. his father spoke to" insider." >> he's a strong man. he's doing fine. >> but many around the league thought he mishandled the situation and now see him as being soft. >> there's a culture that when a player has an issue with another player, they deal with it internally man to man and they feel that by jonathan doing what he did and it goes public, it ends up hurting the team and hurting the people who are involved. >> there was a new report this morning that before martin left the team his agent called jeff ireland to complain about incognito's bullying. hi allegedly responded by saying
7:06 am
martin should stand up for each other and should punch incognito. the dolphins had no comment. >> thank you. james brown has more on the report. j.b., let me ask you this. what's the significance of a special council and the significance of this leading trial lawyer ted wells? >> first of all, mr. wells, his track record his credentials are impeccable. it's the proper move and an excellent move by the nfl to establish an independent council who will have complete free rein to get this so we will all have complete establishment of what the true facts of this situation is. as a matter of fact, we know that it is a multiple-layered one and we haven't gotten to the court issue yet with a lot more still to come forward but a superb move with someone of mr.
7:07 am
wells wells wells' caliber. >> is it widespread or just with regard to him. >> it's not my sense. i've got to a pretty good finger on the pulse with what's going on around the league. it goes on to varying degrees but certainly not crossing over like this case as particularly with the extremely offensive language that's being used. i understand that the locker room is not a chapel. i get that as well too, but nothing to this extreme. >> it's one of those cases where it's hard to get your hands around the facts because each day someone comes out in support of one idea or another. now you have the veterans coming out and saying maybe it's not as if it seems, that he was supportive of this young player. on the other hand clearly the young player felt he was being intimidated. >> you know what charlie and norah? let me be clear too. i need to be clear on this. exercise a little restraint until all the facts come out. i know on one of the cbs
7:08 am
programs, showtime, i was prts animated because i was asked a personal opinion. because of the people who came out in support of him and the language that was used that somehow justified it. let me be clear. the use of epithets derogatory comments and racial comments is not to be condoned. i don't think that is to suggest that because somebody says it was, that it's correct. it's not justified because of a shallow statement by some players that it's the right thing do. absolutely not. >> thank you. and the dow jones industrial average will once again open. wednesday it helped push the indention more than 60 point ace above its last historic finish in october. the dow picked up nearly 129 points ending at 15,747. it is the 33rd record closed
7:09 am
just this year. also on wall street twitter breaks out of its shell this morning. the social media powerhouse is going public on the new york stock exchange. the opening price, $26 a share. that puts the company's value at about $18 billion. we have the managing editor here. welcome. >> hang on. i'm tweeting what you said here. >> of course. you're addicted. >> some of us are, that's right, charlie. >> so what might we expect today? >> i think the stock, norah, as you were saying the stock market is strong. the twitter folks have learned from the mistakes of the facebook ipo a year and a half ago, so i would look for the ipo, this initial public offering to do well this morning. i expect the tradestock to trade up. >> why is there a margin there for growth? >> that's an excellent question. if you're taking stock, you're taking a flyer.
7:10 am
they're not making money right now. they say they can. they're probably can. the company's definitely growing in terms of revenues but they have to believe there's a way to make a lot of money in the same way facebook did. they haven't really indicated how they're going to do that. we've seen sponsored tweets and that sort of thing but really it's a bit of a flyer. >> you and other people have said twitter has the possibility of being bigger than facebook. in what context bigger? >> well, i think in terms of the number of users. i think it can be successful. right now it's a lot smaller. it's about 230 million versus a billion plus for facebook. there's a lot of potential in terms of people using this service overseas. three quarters of the number of people who use twitter are from outside the united states. so it's a global network. >> i read something interesting. twitter has 32 million monthly users. facebook was growing much faster than twitter at this same point in their growth and a lot of people say instagram is growing
7:11 am
a lot faster than twitter. so, again, why should we think it's a hot property -- not that it's not a good one but how's potential. >> when you listen to them they'll tell you privately and publicly as well to shareholders they have a lot of plans to make this service be a part of say, news gathering, to make this be a part of advertising campaigns for companies, to make it part of the social discourse, to make it part of what's going on in d.c. but you're absolutely right. if you go back and look corner by corner it's kind of mod you lating, going up and down. >> andy thank you. >> thanks a lot, guys. >> and this morning the top technology officer overseeing healthcare.gov is on his way out. they say the chief financial
7:12 am
officer is moving to the private sector. he's the first official to leave since the botched rollout of the webb site. meanwhile others are saying how frustrated they are by the problems. good morning. >> good morning. they were told they summoned them here so they could vent and back home they gave the president a piece of their mind. one of them described it as opening a political pressure valve and letting off some steam. on the road yesterday president obama tried to do the same. trapped in the reality of his own health care law, president obama flew to dallas to escape beltway's scrutiny and offer this promise of a better time. >> we're going to get it done. when we get this done -- not if when we do -- yu erie going to have families all across this great state of texas who are going to have the security and the well being of high quality
7:13 am
affordable health insurance. >> that guarantee came afternoon another rough day for congress's health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius. >> access to healthcare.gov has been a missably frustrating experience. it is not acceptable. i am know wassed or fixing it. >> even a friendly group want it to work. >> it's a two-way street. you have to tell us candidly what's going on. >> yes. >> ignoring questionsing the potential website problems and the possibility of insurance policy cancellations were more blunt. >> the only thing i can conclude is that it's impossible to do something in this administration that gets you fired. >> i want you to burn their fingers and make them pay for not being responsible. >> but most of team obama care
7:14 am
remains in place. the president's approval rating now hovers in the low 40s and rivals george w. bush's at the same stage of his presidency and right after her hurricane katrina. >> i think i need to see a doctor. >> hey, you do have that obama care? >> obama care? what's that that oh it's great. >> still, carrie underwood and brad paisley at the country music awards mocked on care to the tune of "amarillo valley ♪ ♪ oh this is getting on my last nerve ♪ ♪ obama care by morning over six people served ♪ >> in other developments insurer humana said it expects the white house to extend its six-month enrollment peopled you by six
7:15 am
months. it's not currently under consideration the white house told us. norah and charlie? >> major, thank you. and this morning a new report rates the safety of child booster seats. it finds the more expensive models aren't always the safest. jeff pegues is at the national institute of highway safety in arlington, virginia. jeff, a lot of people are interested in these results. >> reporter: good morning, norah. it all falls on where the seat belt falls on your child. it should lie flat on the upper thigh of your child and the shoulder belt should fall right in the middle of the shoulder and the chest. according to research if your child is in a booster seat like this, that is the best way to keep them safe. this crash is an example of what can happen if a child between the ages of 4 and 8 isn't strapped into a booster seat.
7:16 am
they're less likely to sustain injuries in crashes than with kids by seat belts alone but some seats perform better than others. jessica jermakian has done more research. >> lap belts and shoulder straps on some booster seats did not properly fit children, but this year a record number of new models received the highest possible rating. 19 out of 31. among them the evenflo chase and the graco nautilus elite. >> in a statement they say their products undergo rigorous testing. they're ensuring all seats can

7:38 am
going to occur and has been occurring. what do we do with the ambulance people who aren't use goingd into a zone where there's a zone with hot gunfire. are we going have to get army medics? but the question is what's driving it. is it the medial coverage? is it the fact when the assaults weapons ban expired in 2004 you start to see the decline, is it the defunding that has left some of these people off medication and not managed. but nobody mass the research yet to say which or what combination. and, of course there's that other question which is how much do we have to do with it. >> we, the media. >> yeah. >> okay. you know all the people who do all the profiles of all the people who commit these kinds of crimes. do they have any answers to this kind of denominator? >> that they have the answers that there is no specific -- no profile of the active shooter. >> but they were always troubled

>> we were able to show on the map if the conditions are right it's only a few hours before you crazy, crazy temperatures. >> and the most basic question how did the teenage king die in the first place? skrienl tifts have speculated for decades it was malaria that killed him or a head wound or leg infection. certainly the skeleton showed he had broken bones up the left side of the body and that suggested a new explanation, a chariot accident. the team that reconstructs accidents for the british court system modeled what might have happened. did he topple out as he was driving or get run over? and they concluded that he was hit while kneeling for some reason, in the way of the chariot. >> i think strangely enough that he seems to have a fairly undignified end if indeed he did

winners. first, here's a look at your "eye opener" at 8:00. >> reporter: it underscore as what black eye it's become for the dolphins and the league. >> is this an isolated case or is the nl concerned that bullying is much more widespread? >> i understand that the locker room is not a chapel. i get that as well but nothing to this extreme. >> the twitter folks have learned from mistakes that the facebook ipo did a year ago so i would look for this initial public offering to do well this morning. they'll probably trade up. >> there was a surprising recommendation in the research that shows that your child should remain in a booster seat. believe this. until the age of 12. >> a group of marines returning home from afghanistan received a heart-warming surprise. several passengers gave up first-class seats. >> they're enjoying a much longer life than the poor old king himself did. >> he thinks he had a very dignified end.

8:03 am
re-election to show their voters that they're holding the president's feet to the fire. in fact, a few of them released statements right after that two-hour meeting saying the problem with the obama care website are frustrating and unacceptable. yesterday the secretary of health and human services kathleen sebelius testified before the senate committee and tried to address some of those democratic concerns. >> while we don't have the fully functioning system yet that consumers need and deserve, we do have a plan in place to identify, pryorioritizeprioritize and manage the remaining fixes across the system. >> what we've receive the past week or so with more and more democrats coming out and trying to distance themselves not from the health care law itself which they all by and large still support, but from the way the website was rolled out and the way that the administration has handled the fallout from that. here's why democrats have concern. if you look at cbs exit polling from the virginia governor's race on tuesday, 53% of voters
8:04 am
in that state said that they oppose the health care law and ken cuccinelli the republican won 81% of those voters. now, he still lost the race norah, charlie, and gayle, but not by as much as everyone expected. just two points. >> nancy cordes thank you. and vice president joe biden got his telephone lines crossed the week but it turned into a good joke. on election night tuesday biden called to congratulation boston's mayor of elect marty walsh. the problem is he called the wrong marty walsh. he called up a political consul tent with the same name. then he congratulated -- he said, you son of a gun, you did it and the political consultant said, sorry, you've about got the wrong guy. >> but a lot of people did it so it wasn't just joe biden. he wasn't the only one who had the duh moment. >> parentally are a dozen marty

8:06 am
movie. you're allowed one "f." it's the gentst wonderful story filled with humor and joy. putz pg-13, strong language and makeing it. >> why not change your movie. >> i thought it made a lot of sense. i had to figure out where the second one was. harvey, i'm wondering. why fight this? the truth of the matter is you have to be over 17 to see it. the chances are that most people who will go see this movie will be 30 years and older, don't you think? you're not going to have younger people seeing the movie. >> our research shows down south and the middle west, the pg-13 is very important for adults. there are certain people who don't want to see an r-rated movie, usually a church family. this is a movie a church family
8:07 am
would profit by seeing. it's very entertaining. why should they give it a -- why should they give it an "r" and restrict it? i don't think that makes sense. i feel like i'm in here every six months when they do it like this, they seem to do it to us every time. >> you can't use the title for one of your movies. >> exactly. >> i'm having a butler flashback. >> 11 minutes, a short film made in 1916. there is some absurdity to this. we're handling it differently this time. >> co-stars judi dench and steve kogan have made a video. so let's take a look at that. >> just when you thought i was dead. i have an important mission for you. are you familiar with mpaa?
8:08 am
>> are you at war with the mpaa? >> i've enlisted them. that's all i can tell you with the blessing of barbara broccoli and the bond team "m" has returned from the dead to fight this battle and an agent and you'll see it. there'll be a premiere on "funnyordie." but you're the first to see it. >> we like to be the first. >> it's appearing on wednesday and "m" has risen from the dead. >> doesn't a part of you do the hula when it happens. you say, okay i'm going to come back. isn't there a part of you that's going do afternoon instagram going to do a hula? >> i'm going instagram you a hula. a jewish hula. >> chris said it's not a judgment value but an indication to a parent that it's no different than any other film.
8:09 am
>> he's absolutely wrong just like they were on that title. protecting a -- look what happened. it became a giant hit. this movie opened in england last week with none of the controversy. >> what was it rated in england? >> general audience for anybody. in other words kids could go see the movie with no parental supervision whatsoever. so am i having fun with the mmpa? 100%. sending james bond to sort this out, yes. >> you know something about the oscars. what is there yet to come out and what does it look like to you the early front-runners are? >> i think that a marvelous movie, "12 years of slave," "the butler" is getting tremendous result. my own. "mandela:long loss to freedom" at the white house for the president. "philomena" is being talked about but also martin scorsese
8:10 am
has a move coming out at christmas. >> "the wolf of wall street." it's been an outstanding year. >> robert redford and bruce stern may get nominated? >> yes. and robert redford is fantastic in his movie too. it's beyond. they should have 20 films for best picture this year. actually what i thought was maybe we should split the awards into two. part i. march 2nd part ii, more winners, more awards more ratings. >> cbs is getting into the movie business, have you heard? >> cbs had a hit with "last vegas vegas." it was very well done too. >> nice to see you. >> i would like to see the jewish hula. >> i'm instagramming you today, whatever that means. >> i'll

healthy as possible so one of the goals that i have is to be able to say healthy at a hundred. i don't want to be effective will i managed at 100. i don't want to be well treated. i want to be healthy. what your genome does is it's actually a roadmap to understand what can you potentially do to be as healthy as possible. >> and it's doable to be healthy to a hundred, isn't it? >> i totally believe in this world it's possible. >> how much data do you need? with enough data you can change health care. >> yes i totally believe that. if you think about every time you go into a grocery store or target they're collecting data on you. you walk in and they can effectively target you. there was a 17-year-old girl identified as being pregnant. that's what we want you to do. go to the doctor's office and say, charlie, you're three years away from being diabetic based on all these behaviors. >> what's the tipping point? you hope to have with "23 and
8:37 am
me" at least a million people by the end of 2013. >> a million people walking around with their genomes is disruptive to the health care system. they're going to walk in knowing information about their jean gnome and that's going to be catalyst to have people start thinking about their prevention and getting genetics into the mainstream of health care sniet just gets increasingly what you can do. >> yeah. i think it's again, more and more information. the goal of having more and more information is to better be able to predict what is your health outcome going to be. it's a frustrating experience for everyone when they walk into the dock door's office and they say, try this. it may work. >> i don't want to walk in and say, try this and it may work. i want to know. >> even the name of the company "23 and me" has to do with the number of chromosomes that make us up. what do the doctors say?
8:38 am
>> any time it's new technology for physicians it's a challenge. we partnered with udacity and created a course about jeannettics and everyone can learn about it. we need everyone and society to get educated about genetics and what does that mean? what does a genetic risk actually mean? >> i want to ask you about it because there was a story that caught my eye. your company was awarded a patent for gamy donor selection which leads to the question of designer babies. you could have a drop-down menu at fertility clinics where you can choose eye color, hair color. do you think that's the future of fertility clinics and that type of having babies in the future? >> i think the reason we put that out it's one of the common questions out. i see your blue eyes. if your partner has blue eyes are your children going to have blue eyes? one of our goals is to get people to understand what does that mean? we all here oh my mother's
8:39 am
father was bald therefore, my children might be bald. those are old wives taels. we want to bring that credibility of how genetics gets passed down to the next generation. >> i don't think people understand. you can take an embryo now and take several celling out of it and you can tell not only the gender of the baby hair color, eye color. you tell a lot. >> hair color eye color, yes. when i had my child, i knew for certain, yes my child's going to have brown eyes. so i think that is the direction we're going to be going. it's definitely incredibly helpful for people to be able to know. go into a pregnancy knowing, yes, my child is likely to have this condition and be aware and informed parent. >> all right. an wojcicki. can i just ask you? do you feel as good as you look? >> i feel great. you know it's been an interesting six months or so but i feel really good. >> we love the most daring ceo

8:45 am
money to develop your franchise. >> if money can buy a championship, the towering 6'8" 48-year-old is well on his way. with new blockbuster hires like paul pierce and kevin garnett, the nets' payroll is over $100 million, a league high. that including the new hire of head coach jason kidd. this is kidd's first coaching job. he was playing basketball just a few months ago. >> i know that older players, they respect him a lot. he's a real leader. i think jason can do it? >> but despite the glamor of owning a professional basketball team and the thrills of being an adventure-seeking billionaire, prokhorov said he's completely devoted to politics. >> you think of yourself as a politician now. >> i'm only in politics now.
8:46 am
>> that's right? >> yeah. >> that's all you care about is politics? >> from time to time i keep an eye on what is going on in the economy, what is going on in my group, what my day-to-day routine is. >> in 2012 prokhorov ran for president of russia. to no one's surprise he lost to extraman vladimir putin. >> give me your strongest assess mnlts of vladimir putin. what makesing him tick? we awe know he's a former kgb agent. >> i think my feeling, he's the strongest politician guy on the planet for the time being. >> should the u.s. trust him? >> when you're talking politics it's very vulnerable. what we need now in the first stage is to have very good casual relation. that's why i'm here. culture unites nations.
8:47 am
>> prokhorov recently formed his own political party. as a businessman who made his fortune from the collapse of the soviet union, he believes russia needs evolution, not revolution. >> it's only maximum percent of it for the time being but in the near future my goal to address them, my ideas. so it's a long-term problem. >> but your ideas are what? entrepreneurship. >> market economy. n monopolies a lot of competition. >> political freedom. >> and to be part of a european union. >> so russia in your mind is european. >> yeah, sure. >> can you do it? >> i hope so but i think it will take maybe 10 15rks years. >> one clear line he differs from russia's political leadership is his take on edward snowden. >> would you have given asylum to edouard snowden?
8:48 am
>> i think for me it's a great testimony that the two countries are far from adequate. russia, they really think he was a traitor. >> the majority of russians in your judgment think edward snowden was a traitor. >> was a traitor. and because we have very special history, russian history, and where we have a very strong belief about loyalty if you're working in a position, especially there. then you don't go auto and steal all the secrets. >> so you would not have granted him asylum. >> i think, yes. my position never. >> for now he knows his political goals are a long shot. >> how dlong you think putin will stay in power? >> he's the most popular politician in russia by far. >> his basketball team looked more poised for a championship a feat that the consummate bachelor has a lot riding on. >> you have said if you don't
8:49 am
win a championship in five years you will punish yourself and get married. >> it was a joke. >> so you're backing away from it. >> no. just for the time being i'm not looking for the wife. >> but the wife is looking for you. >> maybe. >> there's also this. if you're going to run for president of almost any country, you can't be a bachelor, you know? you have to have a wife children. you have to be like most people. >> you know believe in the global world. it's completely different. maybe i'll be the first bachelor in the world. >> that was tongue in cheek. he said the right thing. you don't have to necessarily be anything. you can be a global bachelor. >> what was that like being there? >> it was fascinating. we were sitting in his presidential box above the court. all these russians are talking in russian. you're thinking what a smart thing. here i'm watching an nb a team and they're talking within my
