this is what you're waking up to this morning. temperatures in the teens across the northeast and we'll end up seeing things, you know, moderate a bit today. that means our temperatures just a degree or two above freezing across the new york city area. if you're out at central park, it's going to be crisp. you definitely need your gloves and your coat and your hat. things will get nasty into the overnight hours. warming across the nation's midsection. there is a little relief once we get a couple days out as that air moves to the east. in the meantime, nasty, wintry weather across the midwest, including the threat of some freezing rain in the chicago area today. we could see around a tenth of an inch. watch for slick surfaces and bridges, they tend to freeze first before the regular surface, the road surface does. watch for that and a wintry mix all the way from minneapolis into green bay today and into the beginning of the workweek. that's going to be a problem here if you have any traveling

3:09 am
conducting background checks as required by federal law and also private sales taking place between individuals which do not require a background check and that was a concern for some of the vendors with a federal firearms license. >> if you go to a license ffl, you have to do a background check where you sit down, we get your i.d. and we call you in. if you're a felon or crazy, you don't get a gun. but in the state of georgia if an individual sells you a gun, no one does a background check. >> what the gun vendors are telling us is the one thing all this debate of gun control legislation has been is good for business. randi? >> catherine callaway, thank you very much. the price of sending a letter at the post office goes up today by just one penny. it will now cost you 46 cents to send grandma a letter or 33 cents to send her a postcard. the postal service faces a budget crisis and desperate need

it is final's day down under. i'm talking about the australian open and the men's final under way right now. number one in the world djokovic taking on murray. amanda, i have to say i was heart broken when federer lost to murray in the semis, but this could be the new rivalry, right? we have djokovic and murray today. >> yeah. that's certainly the case. i can put your mind at rest, randi. we saw roger federer out at a nightclub last night, behaving himself, i have to say, but he was with his family and not too down in the dumps having not made the final here. i don't know if you remember the great u.s. open encounter between pete sampras and andre
3:21 am
auga agassi from 2001. that is what seems to be happening here this evening. it was always going to be a great encounter, as you said. people billing it as the great rivalry that we're going to see for years to come in tennis. and the two players are slugging it out. blow for blow. the most fantastic rallies that we're seeing here. the majority of the break points in the first set and couldn't convert any of them. it went to a tiebreak and andy murray took that 7-6 and then the second set. that one blow for blow. neither could break down the other serve. djokovic won that one. andy murray had a bit of a medical time-out and took his shoe off and suffering from serious blisters. it's been really hot here over the last couple of weeks and the courts here are very hard. a little bit of a concern for andy murray fans. if you go back to the u.s. open
3:22 am
final that one went the distance, over five hours and that seems to be what is going to happen today. what's at stake, what is djokovic looking for a third straight title here? that would give him a little piece of history. murray is looking for his first australian open title. he has been in the final here twice before, but never quite got his hands on the trophy. frankly, i'm not going to be brave enough to put my hand up and say who i think is going to win because at this point i think it's anybody's game. it's been great, andre agassi who is sitting in the stands waiting to present these guys with the trophy, whoever it is, whatever time it will be. we're approaching 1 1:00 in the evening here. so, yeah, we're settling in, expecting a late evening. >> no question about that. but, i mean, andy murray showing some real confidence since winning the gold and certainly since winning the u.s. open. what is the history, amanda, between these two guys. do they know each other well?
3:23 am
>> yeah. it's really interesting rivalry that has developed between these two. novak djokovic from serbia and murray from a little village in scotland. you wouldn't think there was much to bring them together, but they were born just a week apart and first crossed paths some 14 years ago as juniors on the boy's circuit. that's when they first played at the age of 12. and since then, their paths have crisscrossed throughout the tennis world and throughout the tennis calendar. they practice together quite often on tour and they have been known to play doubles together and now it is the big rivalry. it seems for years to come. djokovic blossomed earlier without doubt. he is looking for his fifth grand slam title here today. andy murray's second. but andy murray has definitely stepped up in the last six months with the olympic gold and with the u.s. open victory. of course, he now has lendal in
3:24 am
his corner and that makes the difference. many people suggesting whatever the rankings say, djokovic is number one and murray is number three. whatever the rankings say, people saying whoever wins this match really does have a right to say that they're the best player in the world. >> we'll be watching it along with you. amanda davis, thank you very much. a quick reminder, the super bowl is next weekend and that's when we'll welcome the newest member to our sports team. rachel nickels will be reporting live from new orleans. president obama says he expects football to gradually become less violent. he tells the republic i'm a big football fan, but if i had a son i would have to think long and hard before i'd let him play football. mr. obama says he's particularly concerned about college players who suffer concussions and other injuries. he's less worried about the nfl where they are grown men that are paid well. less violence may make the game a little bit less exciting, but
3:25 am
it will be a whole lot better for the players and those of us that are fans maybe won't have to examine our consciouses quite as much. the interview appears in the february 11th issue and in the runp to next sunday's super bowl. cnn will look all week at violence in football. south korean pop icon psy may not be in the half-time show, but you may see him during the game. ♪ >> maybe not so much like that, but it could be something similar. psy has his own, his very own super bowl ad and it's for wonderful putashios. this morning a behind the scenes look from that commercial shoot. earlier i spoke with one of the men who helped put it together and i asked him what it was like working with psy. >> well, randi, it was great to work with psy. really professional and an amazing performer and he really
3:26 am
turned it on. as soon as we started shooting the commercial and delivered a true psy performance, he got along really well with our grammy award winning director matthew cullen. they collaborated and created a really great commercial. >> now, i understand this commercial is really supposed to be nuts and, yes, the pun is intended there. but there is also a bit of a big reveal, from what i understand. can you give us the school on that? >> every one of our get wonderful has opening up pistachios in their own way. as you can imagine, psy with all his dprat mogreat moves. he will open a pitashstachio asy psy can. >> what more can you tell us about the ad and why you think
3:27 am
it will be memorable for the viewers. >> well, we know so many people will tune into the super bowl. largest tv event of the year, every year. we combined that with the largest celebrity on the planet. psy video has well over 1.1 million views and his popularity continues to grow. people will see it and smile and they're going to dance. everything they like about psy, they'll like about the commercial. it is going to be a lot of fun. >> what made him a good fit for this? >> well, our campaign brings in a lot of celebrities and psy has a great personality. he's very visually fun with his video and, of course, he's in the social space. he's so popular. so, for us, we were able to reach out to his fans all over the world via the social media and facebook and, you know, we leverage psy celebrity and he
3:28 am

3:39 am
forthcoming on this. the department of defense does not allow members of the joint chiefs to be fully candid about what's going on. >> let me just jump in here because you mentioned zoey and she's still with us. why don't you tell us what your reaction is to what elaine is saying? >> there's a couple thing. in regards to the marine test, two people does not recpresent the entire marine corps. they went to a grueling two month school when they came out they were not officers. so, i don't think you can generalize about all women everywhere from that situation. in regards to the physical standards, that's absolutely an issue. we're absolutely not asking for quotas for women, and not a set number of women in these roles. we don't want standards lowered. we just want a chance for women to compete to meet those standards. some women will be able to do it, just like some men can't do it. we just want woim to have a chance to try. again, regarding the sexual
3:40 am
assault. pulling women out of society because there is danger to them is the approach they've taken in iran or saudi arabia, and that's not where we want to go in america. >> elaine. >> the department of defense has called for quotas. they call them diversity metrics. promotions will be denied to male officers, if they don't support diversity metrics. so, regardless of your intent, zoey, or what is being said today. this is how it is going to play out. to have what is called a critical mass or what general dempsey described as significant women, large numbers. this is not about individual rights, it is about group rights and pushing the diversity agenda and using our military to promote a social agenda and put lives at greater risk. >> let me ask you, elaine, about these comments from senator john mccain. he thinks allowing women to
3:41 am
partake in this way is a great idea. they should be recognized for their service for the military. how is it? this is a man who speaks from a wealth of experience. what do you say to that? >> right. well, i agree with the last part. women are promoted to rates equal to or faster than men. surely he knows better. he talked about navy s.e.a.l.s. this is not a g.i. jane movie with demi moore. you can't say it will improve the community, no. it will just complicate matters. when you complicate matters in close combat, attacking the enemy. that's when lives are put at greater risk than they need to be. it's not fair to the women, it's not fair to the men. this is not just a gift to women for valentine's day. >> let me give zoey the last word here. >> regarding the promotion matter i think women have been treated very equally or not seeing quotas for women at the top because they're not doing a great job of filling them, even
3:42 am
if they are. women are serving in wider roles and promotion, the military is ultimately a society and that's what they're aiming for and the people who are the best will rise to the top. that wasn't happening under the old policy. those are some of the same arguments they made when they integrated racially. they repealed don't ask, don't tell. frankly when they opened other units to women. when women were allowed to fly in combat aircraft and those arguments have always proven to be with all the past situations. i think if we just keep ignoring the evidence and the fact that women are already serving on the ground, we're doing an injustice to the women who are serving and who have served and who will continue to serve well. >> hundreds of thousands of tourists are expected to converge on brazil for next year's world cup. we'll tell you about a group of professionals who are brushing up on some, i guess, critical skills just in time for the games. app to get a tow truck.
