>> yes, absolutely. the ability to understand the return on investment has gotten far more sophisticated over the past few years. 20 years ago, no. it was truly a wing and a prayer. now, it's absolutely scientific. they wouldn't be just dropping a $4 million bomb on their ceos lap if it didn't pay back. >> some of the biggest spenders will be in the stadium on game day, face val few for tickets is $850 to $1250. but on stubhub, prices start at $1600, enough to make you queasy, even if the 30 million pounds of snack food didn't already. i want to give you one last number. guess which sales will spike 20% the day after super bowl sunday? anti-acids. alison kosik, cnn, hew york. >> no matter how much you spend for the super bowl, you could be in a position to make it back if you're wisely invested. an old indicator says a win for a team from the national football league's nfc division, is the 49ers this year, is better for investors than a win

police are in constant communication with a man holding a 5-year-old in an underground bunker in midland city, alabama. george howell is there. police came out with new details what items the suspect jimmy lee dikes is giving the child. what are they? >> we just heard from the sheriff here, wally olson. he said a few interesting things. we learned that mr. dykes has electric heater and blankets. certainly it's cold in the bunker, about a constant 50 degrees in that bunker underground. they're still able to get the young boy medications he needs. he suffers from asperger's syndrome and dhd. also able to get him the crayons and coloring book. also toys. and there was another interesting thing that i noticed in this particular press conference. when the sheriff said that he wanted to thank mr. dykes, listen to this. >> he's told us that he has a lk
11:03 am
heater and blankets inside that he's taking care of him. he's also allowed us to provide coloring books, medication, toys, and i want to thank him for taking care of our child. that's very important. >> reporter: again, he wanted to thank him for taking care of their boy. you can tell this is a very personal, it's something that they're paying very close attention to, everything they're able to glean from communications with mr. dykes. miguel, remember, this all started back on tuesday when investigators say that mr. dykes boarded a school bus and allegedly shot and killed the bus driver, then abducted this 5-year-old boy taking had imback to this property here where he has an underground bunker and now in day five of the standoff. >> interesting that they thanked him. it clearly indicates they're trying to communicate with him in every way possible. what do we know about mr. dikes?
11:04 am
are police revealing anything about a possible motive here? >> not at this point. they are very tight-lipped about any communications except to tell us that the negotiations are still ongoing. remember, they say that the young boy is physically unharmed. that's all we've got to go with at this point, miguel. >> we hope this, would out for everyone in the most positive way. thank you very much for keeping tabs on it. new details today in the case of a lead prosecutor in texas who was gunned down in broad daylight thursday morning. a friend of prosecutor mark haas tells cnn he feared for his life and carried a gun with him to work. days before he was ambushed and shot multiple times walking from his car. he was killed in an employee parking lot a block from the cough man county courthouse. witnesses say one or two gunmen wearing masks jumped in a getaway car. authorities still have no leads. california's parole board is recommending freedom for one of
11:05 am
charles manson's convicted followers. 70-year-old bruce davis was sentenced to life in prison in 1972 for the murders of two men. he was not involved in the more infamous murder of actress sharon tate. jerry brown now has 30 days to decide whether to release david. if freed, he would be the first convicted manson family member to leave prison. a massive manhunt for a convicted murderer. mistakenly released from prison, it's over. illinois police captured stephen robbins last night 60 miles outside of chicago three days after he rent on the lam. is he serving time for a murder 11 years ago in indianapolis. it's still unclear how he went free tuesday following a court hearing. new allegations of doping against alex rodriguez. a-rod being accused of taking performance enhancing drugs from a florida clinic but this is not the first time. he admitted in the past to doping but says he's been clean since 2003.
11:06 am
national correspondent susan candiotti is live for us in new york. susan? >> hi, miguel. he is again trying to distance himself from this week's controversy involving peds and a miami clinic. now there's another report alleging alex rodriguez got home visits to his waterfront mansion from main who ran that clinic. espn quoting unidentified sources says that is man, anthony boscsh injected a-rod with performance enhancing drugs. once he was reportedly kicked out after bosh had trouble with finding a vein. similar drug claims were leveled earlier this week in the miami new times newspaper which says it has a diary containing notes from bosh detailing drugs including human growth hormone. cnn has been unable to see the documents in question. we did go to the clinic days ago, but it's been shut down. bosh denies all allegations, and through a spokesman he tells cnn he did not treat nor is he
11:07 am
associated with players including a-rod. earlier statement to cnn a-rod also says none of this is true and through his lawyers calls the documents about smim iglet." his lawyers add this, "in regards to the new allegations made in espn's outside the line story, we can say they are not true. alex is working diligently on his rehabilitation and is looking forward to getting back on the field as soon as possible." remember, a-rod has repeatedly said he stopped taking performance enhancing drugs back in 2003. >> susan, if major league baseball's investigation into this clinic goes anywhere, what impact might it have on a-rod's contract with the yankees? >> that's the big question. is this all going to go anywhere. think about this. under a collective bargaining agreement, teams cannot discipline players for this kind of thing. our cnn legal analyst paul cowen
11:08 am
tells us his main worry would be a suspension possibly from the baseball commissioner and that could affect his contract with the yankees. >> obviously, if he's not showing up to play baseball because of a suspension, they would have certain rights under the contract then to pay him nothing or considerably less money but it gets complicated because of the multiple agreements in question. >> we're a long way off from that. no idea, of course, where major league baseball's investigation is heading at this point. back to you, miguel. >> susan candiotti, thank you very much. it's groundhog day. the day where we find out if we'll ever, ever have an early string or six more weeks of miserable winter. who better to predict that than the legendary prognosticator punxsutawney phil. >> so you faithful, there is no shadow to see. an early spring for you and me.
11:09 am
>> i don't know if i buy it. you heard what he had to say though. but but what chuck the groundhog? he's the furry prognosticator at the staten island zoo. he also predicted an early spring. the super bowl isn't just about touch downs and penalty flags. there's controversy surrounding the big game. find out what deer apartmentlers, ray lewis and doping have in common.'d it go? well, dad, i spent my childhood living with monks learning the art of dealmaking. you've mastered monkey-style kung fu? no. priceline is different now. you don't even have to bid. master hahn taught you all that? oh, and he says to say (translated from cantonese) "you still owe him five bucks." your accent needs a little work.

peoppeoplep they got to th they do. cancan't bp can't be wican? r yeah, that's true r yeah, that's true r >> the>> they ! well. >> no.pno, you cu >> >> now the 49ers issued a statement saying the team stands by the lgbt community and cully ser apologized for the remarks. you're not buying it. why is that? >> well, i mean you can hear his vernacular in the interview. when you read the statement released by the 49ers he sounds like winston churchill. it seems as if he had a lot of coaching in order to do that apology. in my opinion, when you're being coached by other people to apologize, it's not coming from the heart. i'm happy to hear he's doing sensitivity training and going to volunteer with the trevor project because it works out of kids kicked out of their homes for being lgbt. we'll see if he's sincere with his apology. just in the statement alone, i'm not buying. >> talk about ray lewis. he will retire at the end of this season. do you believe it? if the ravens don't win the super bowl, will he still retire? >> it's hard to tell, right? is he brett favre? is he going to come back?
11:14 am
i don't know. one thing i will say is that his story line has been fantastic. when you think about the last time he was in the super bowl and all the different disappointments the team has had, fantastic historical defenses but totally anemic offenses unable to get enough points to get to the playoffs. here at the beginning of the season, it looked like they had a really strong chance. again the offense falls to pieces. they have to replace the offensive coordinator. all the things this team has been through has been fantastic over the course of the season and to see ray end on top, i think a lot of people would be happy to see it. if he doesn't get there, he's the last person from the '96 draft. his body hurts. >> he's been in hot water accusing of using deer antler spray to recover from injury. it contains a form of growth hormone. listen to his response. >> because i'm here to win the super bowl, not to entertain somebody that doesn't affect that one way or another.
11:15 am
it shows you how people really plan things and try to attack people from the outside. it's just foolish. >> so two things real quick. is this a common performance enhancing drug, and do you believe the denial? >> is it common? i can tell you that i've spoken to a number of colleagues and you know, a month ago, we had no idea what this deer antler spray was. no, i don't think it's common. and you know, do we believe his denials? unfortunately we're now living in the age in which an athlete is guilty until proven innocent. after the baseball scandal for the '90s, after lance armstrong. you know, it's really difficult to believe an athlete no matter how popular he or she may be whether he they tell you they did not engage in performance-enhancing drugs. and when you've got deer antler spray that nobody's heard of, it is becomes skeptical. >> thank you very much. have a great time down in new
11:16 am
orleans. >> thanks. talk to you later. >> see you. do you want to know how to eat healthy at the super bowl or at the super bowl party. >> do you need a preview of some of the best commercials this year? if so, has it covered for you. jarrett bellini explains. >> i know there's nothing more exciting than a guy sitting at his desk pointing at things on a monitor but bear with me and i'm going to show you great content we bowl. first of all, a great story about healthy foods you can eat at a super bowl party which mind you, is a terrible idea because the super bowl is all about calories, about chicken wings and pizza and other horrible things you can put in your body. if you want to go healthy, we've got a great article about that. of course, for some of you, the game doesn't matter. you really don't care. but there is the halftime show, and that sort of matters, beyonce will be performing this year and we also have a gallery of the best and worst halftime
11:17 am
performances, and of course, the other big nonfootball thing that everybody loves is the commercials bowl we have some of those to preview. you can check them out before they go on tv on sunday. so we've covered commercials, the halftime show, we've covered food. there's one other thing that most people will probably watch, too. it's the puppy bowl. we've got a little thing on here where you can preview the puppies that will be competing this year. don't miss that because it's puppies. it's puppies and you know what in if you're not into that and not into all the other aspects of the game but still being dragged out to this party, we also have an article that will tell you how not to be a jerk at somebody's house just because you don't like things that are fun doesn't mean you have to ruin everybody else's fun. all of that can be fou bowl. we'll have ingame analysis from our friends at bleacher report. check it out. enjoy the game. back to you, miguel.
11:18 am
>> thank you, jarrett bellini. i hope his mother doesn't let him sit like that at home. cnn is live in new orleans with our take on the super bowl. we welcome rachel nichols to kick off in new orleans a cnn bleacher special in afternoon, 4:00 p.m. eastern. hillary clinton has said her good-byes as secretary of state. but now the speculation really starts about her next move. what polls are showing about support for a white house run. oil changes at meineke are always a great deal.

willing to hold direct talks with iran. >> we would be prepared to meet bilaterally with the iranian leadership. we would not make it a secret that we are doing that.
11:22 am
we would let our partners know if that occasion presented itself. that offer stands, but it must be real and tangible. and there las to be an agenda that they're prepared to speak to. >> the vice president was speaking at a security conference in munich. meanwhile the iranian foreign minister said he hopes a new secretary of state john kerry will work toward softening washington's policies toward iran. hillary clinton has said good-byes to colleagues at the state department. >> i am so grateful that we've had a chance top contribute in each of our ways to making our country and our world stronger, safer, fairer, and better. >> john kerry was sworn in yesterday and brings in the doughnuts for his new job monday morning. good mof. but a cnn political ed other tore paul steinhauser explains the hot topic is what could
11:23 am
happen in four years. >> hey, miguel. it's the biggest question in presidential politics. will she run? the she, of course, is now former secretary of state hillary clinton. when asked in a global town hall a few days ago if she was thinking of making another bid for the white house, this was her answer. >> i am not thinking about anything like that right now. >> here's what she said the same day in an interview with cnn. >> have you decided that you absolutely will not run? >> well, i have absolutely no plans to run. >> no plans, but she isn't closing the door. clinton's returning to private life with poll numbers any politician would love. nearly seven in ten in a recent poll said they approved of the job she was doing as america's top dip low mat. and two-thirds said they had a favorable impression of her. but two things there was a partisan divide in both polls with only a minority of republicans giving her a thumbs up. if she becomes a politician again, we could see the numbers
11:24 am
come down a bit. she.shouldn't be in a rush to make it up her mind says paul begala who was a top political advisor to president clinton. >> she's not going to commit to running. there's no need to rush into 20816. >> if she does run, our own cnn/orc poll indicates she would be the front-runner for the democratic presidential nomination. but we're getting ahead of ourselves. let's let clinton enjoy some down time, at least for a month or two. miguel? >> at least a month or two. john kerry told the bloston globe he was offered the job a full week before susan rice with drew her mind for consideration. he's one of the biggest nfl stars of all time. but it's a scandal that has people talking about dan marino, even as he prepares to work the super bowl for cbs. but first, we all know we're going to watch the super bowl for the big plays and big hits, but those hits can have a lifelong impact on players after they walk off the field.
11:25 am
in today's human factor, chief medical correspondent dr. sanjay gupta introduces us to former detroit line la ma campbell ta talks about the invisible wounds of football and what he's doing now to make the sport safer. >> lamar campbell has achieved what many young men only dream of, after four years starting for the university of wisconsin, he made it to the pros. >> i got offered to come to camp for the detroit lions as a free agent in '98. i made the team and played with them for five years. >> injuries ended his nfl career but campbell successfully found a new life after the game. >> yeah, great. >> as a real estate broker. >> welcome back to life after the game. >> and radio talk show host on the voice america sports network. a platform he uses to educate other players about transitioning to life after football. as well as the dangers of injuries you cannot really see. repeated hits to the head. >> the perception of what a concussion was was different. i don't think we thought that you had a concussion until you
11:26 am
were new yorked out on the field. and we looked at it as beige of honor. >> as a player he didn't know that concussions can cause serious injury to the brain. now campbell says playing football takes years off a player's life. >> cramps all over my body and headaches and migraines. >> he says he's also suffered some memory loss. >> there were situations where i don't remember a certain series. like i would be out there and not realize exactly what was going on. >> while he was never diagnosed, looking back, campbell believes he's had over ten concussions in his football career. and he believes players today need to recognize the symptoms and be willing to let their brains heal. a year ago, he considered donating his brain for research in chronic traumatic encephalopathy or cte, a degenerative brain disorder found in athletes with repetitive brain trauma and most recently linked to the suicides of junior say au and dave duerson. >> i wrapped my brain around it for a long time.

police in alabama say they're in constant communication with a man holding a 5-year-old boy hostage in an underground bunker. the standoff in in its fifth day. negotiators are talking with 65-year-old jimmy lee dykes through aventlation pipe. police say the boy has an electric blanket and dykes allowed officials to send down medication and toys. he killed the driver of a school bus and police aren't speculating on the motive. and now to a murder trial that really has people talking. the victim travis alexander was found shot, stabbed 27 times in his throat was slit from ear to
11:39 am
ear. prosecutors say it was the work of a jealous lover, jodi arias, but arias says it was self-defense in that alexander was a sex maniac who threatened her with bodily harm. hln's alexis weed takes a look at what will happen if she's convicted of murder and gets the death penalty. >> jodi arias could join three other women currently sitting on arizona's death row if a jury finds her guilty as charged. a first-degree murder con vikds could land arias in line for what's recently become one of the nation's busiest death chambers. the state carries out all post 1992 convictions by lethal injection and now permits witnesses to watch prisoners put to death. its courts recently gave the green light for witnesses to observe the entire execution process, including insertion of the lethal iv. arizona courts further okayed a one-drug dose of pent totebarbital as the meth odd for
11:40 am
death but the state is said to have only another supply of the drug to carry out one more execution before it's forced to find an alternative. convicted rapist and double murderer dale stokely was put to death last month by prison officials who delivered his lethal injection by cutting into his groin area. this in efforts to find an artery suitable for delivering the drug. the femoral catheter procedure is standard alternative when officials run into trouble with inserting iv lines into a prison's arm. arizona has carried out 34 executions since readopting capital punishment in 1992. yet, none of those were carried out against a woman. the only woman to be executed in the state's history eva duggan, was put to death by hanging more than 0 years ago. a death sentence would mean arias would spend the rest of her days in a maximum custody 12 x 7 foot cell. >> next week, the trial will enter its sixth week.

is someone lying to you? in a minute, we'll meet someone who teach you the three things you need to know if someone isn't being honest and he'll help us figure out who is telling the truth in the manti te'o hoax.
11:42 am
11:43 am
11:44 am
as lies go, this one was a whopper. you've heard is the story by now, notre dame football player manti te'o was duped by another man pretending to be a woman. they had an online percentage that ended when a fictional girlfriend named lennay died. this week the man who perpetrated the hoax said he did it because he was in love with te'o. is he citying the truth. >> steve is an expert in interviewing and detecting deception, trained by the fbi. he's worked with cops around the
11:45 am
world, training them in lie detection and human behavior. i want to let folks take a look at the interview first. >> me, it i was hurting. i was like whoa, like, you know, i've given so much into this and i realized right then in that moment that i poured so much into lennay that i myself wasn't getting nothing and look what i was left with. i was crying. i was hurt emotionally. just all kinds of things just took over. so right then and there, i made the decision, i can't do this lennay thing anymore. >> looking at this interview, is this someone generally telling the truth or not and how can you tell? >> firstly i look at how people take ownership or possession of the story and also look for the emotions being in the correct places. and also how people answer questions. i believe he is telling the truth in fact in relation to these issues because the emotions are in the right place.
11:46 am
i might be able to think of a lie but can i communicate it with believability and that's what lies have to consider when they're telling a story. in this case, the emotions were in the right place. >> so the bigger the lie gets, does it get harder or easier to lie and does the lie get harder to for someoneton detect? >> we're not very good at spotting a lie research shows when faces with a lie. but bear in mind, for every one lie a person tells, they have to invent two or three to protect themselves from the first one and secondly have to have a great memory. they don't want to contradict what they've said and that becomes a problem because ala bill clinton he got deeper and deeper till there was no escape exit. they do get more difficult and we're not very good at picking lies. >> interesting. if you had to give me three things for those of us who aren't trained that we should look for if someone is lying in an important conversation, what would they be? >> well, firstly, is the person
11:47 am
answering the question or are they being evasive, dismissive or do they deflect or answer the question with another question. that's a dead giveaway. number two, is does their body language weflect what they're saying? is there conflict between what they're saying, what their body language is expressing. body language is often more overt and thirdly, are they taking ownership. usually you'll find in homicide cases i've worked on, truthful people take ownership and possession. not only will they tell you if they're relaying a truthful story what occurred, but how they felt. whereas deceptive people don't do that. they'll create distance, disassociation and separation. so they're very robotic because they don't want to trip themselves up. >> mr. van alpern, thank you very much for joining us. it's super bowl weekend and we're thinking about our favorite football movies. our critic will tell us which ones rank highest on her list. six people sharing one

11:54 am
football player, i mean he was amazing. show me the money is in the consciousness for a reason. we all want money and people to show it to us. and cameron crowe is responsible for this film and made it truly memorable and deserving of an oscar. >> show me the money. we do love that film. >> that's right. miguel, show it to me. >> i'll be out in l.a. soon. so i will show you some money then. what about some of the older films? what about, what was the old burt reynolds film? the longest yard." >> yes. this movie is fantastic because burt reynolds is in jail. so he is in a football game which is prisoners versus the guards which is a fantastic setup right there. this movie is funny and burt reynolds is obviously a complete master at both acting and as it turns out, he made me believe he was a football player. so this one is great. it's a super, super funny one, and when he tells the warden to
11:55 am
shove this in his trophy case, i was like yes, i will do that exact thing. i wish i had a trophy and a trophy case. >> i loved that movie. the one that always makes me cry no matter how many times i say it won't is "brian's song." >> "brian's song," get out your kleenex seen saying those two words makes most people weep. the story of brian piccolo and gale sayers and their friendship together. this was just a made for tv movie actually but it lives on in everybody's consciousness because it's so strong and really human elements like friendship and building a team together. and when brian comes down with cancer, it's just so crushing. it's devastating. and the end of this movie is -- there will be not a dry eye in the house. >> yeah. brutal. all right. now everybody's favorite. it's almost cheese ball anymore. rudy, rudy, rudy. >> i love sean aston and i love
11:56 am
"rudy," because who hasn't worked really, really hard for something and just wanted the fruits of their labors to be an entire football stadium yelling your name when you finally get to take the field? when you're finally a player at the college that you wanted to go to? this movie is spectacular. and is a lesson for anybody who thinks that maybe working hard is for suckers. i say it isn't. be like sean astin and get thousands of people chanting your name and celebrating you. this is one of my fantasies. i guess i'm revealing too much. >> we always like you because you reveal too much. what exactly is your hair color this week? wasn't it pink last week? >> it is pink. you know, it's still the exact same as it was. i've styled it differently. i'm a woman of mystery in celebration of the super bowl, i'm thinking about hair. >> grae drake, woman of mystery, rotten thank you very much. >> bye, miguel. cnn will be live in new

12:01 pm
is just moments away. california's parole board is recommending freedom for one of charles manson's convicted followers. bruce davis was sentenced to life in prison in '72 for the murder of two men. he was not involved in the more infamous murder of actress sharon tate. california governor jerry brown has 30 days now to decide whether to release davis. if freed, he would be the first convicted manson family member to leave prison solely on good behavior. at a florida gun swap today, they took in more than rifles and pistols. hisboro county sheriff's deputies say two rocket launchers were dropped off. more than 1200 guns were also swapped for $75 in cash each with so many guns, they ran out of cash and had to hand out vouch ares. if you have a witter account, the social media website says it's been hacked and about 250,000 accounts are compromised. the company says it discovered the breach earlier in the week. now back to one of our top
12:02 pm
stories, that standoff in alabama. police say there's an open line of communication between negotiators and man holding a 5-year-old boy in an underground bunker for five days. it the crisis is all happening in midland city in the southeastern corner of alabama. george horell is there. police came out with new details what the suspect 658-year-old jimmy lee dikes is giving the child. what is he giving him? >> we got new insight into exactly how he is treating this young boy. we know that mr. dikes now has an electric heater and blankets, keep in mind it's cold there underground about a constant 50 degrees underground. that is good that the young boy has blankets. also know that they are able to get medications to this child. he suffers from aspergers syndrome and adhd. the crayons and coloring books we learned about a few days ago. investigators are able to give the boy toys.
12:03 pm
that's all good news. but here's one thing. i want you to listen to how the sheriff relayed this information to us, the personal appeal really he made to mr. dikes. watch this. >> he's also allowed us to provide coloring books, medication, toys, and i want to thank him for taking care of our child. that's very important. >> reporter: so you know, you listen to that and it raises the question, you know, does eshave a television or a radio? how would he hear that personal appeal? but clearly it was a direct personal appeal to mr. dykes, miguel. >> clearly very, very sensitive. whatever is going on over there. they really want to communicate with him in every way possible. what do we know about the suspect? are police revealing anything about a possible motive here? >> not at this point. we've not heard anything about the motive as to why this child was abducted. investigators are very tight-lipped about anything they released to us, even the
12:04 pm
visuals, the things that we're able to show where we are now. they're very, very sensitive about those things as this investigation continues. now, miguel in, day five but they say the negotiations are still ongoing. >> horrific. are they saying anything about any demands coming from the suspect? >> reporter: no, not at this point. you know, they're not releasing any information about the communications, but they are about hopeful this thing gets resolved peacefully. >> oh, dear. thanks for keeping up with it down there for us. hope it gets done possibly. >> of course >> thanks. now to some new allegations of doping against new york yankees star alex rodriguez. a-rod accused of taking performance enhancing drugs from a florida clinic but this is not the first time the 37-year-old admitted in the past to doping, but says he's been clean since 2003. national correspondent susan candiotti is live for us in new york. susan? >> hi, miguel. allegations of performance
12:05 pm
enhancing drugs and more denials from a-rod. this time a report alleges the yankees slugger alex rodriguez got personal visits to his waterfront miami mansion from a man who ran a clique. espn quoting unidentified sources says that man anthony bosh injected a-rod. on one occasion bosh was reportedly kicked out of the third baseman's home after bosh allegedly had trouble with finding a claim. similar claims were leveled earlier this week in the miami new times newspaper which says it has a diary containing notes from bosh detailing drugs including human growth hormone giventon several athletes. cnn has been unable to see those documents in question. we did go to the clinic earlier this week but it's been shut down. bosh denies all allegations. through a spokesman he tells cnn he did not treat nor is he associated with players inclu including a-rod. in an earlier statement to cnn
12:06 pm
a-rod also says none of this is true and calls the documents about him illegitimate. in a new statement issued friday night, his lawyers add this. in regard to the new allegations made in espn's outside the line story, we can say they are not true. alex is working diligently on his rehabilitation and is looking forward to getting back on the field as soon as possible. as you may know, he's recovering from hip surgery. now, a-rod has repeatedly said he stopped taking performance-enhancing drugs in 2003. miguel in. >> susan, are the authorities looking at this question in major league baseball says it's aware of the situation? >> that's right. they are investigating. now, dea won't comment on it. cnn's legal analyst paul callen says there is plenty for authorities to look into. >> the dea would be looking to see if the players are using banned controlled substances. the federal code has a whole list of substances that are banned that a prescription is
12:07 pm
required for their use, and if someone is importing these substances into the u.s. and then redistributing those distance substances, there could be a variety of federal drug crimes involved. >> now, callan says a-rod's first concern should be a potential suspension from major league baseball. that could still be a long way off. >> thank you very much. >> you're welcome. it's groundhog day. the day when we find out if we'll have an early spring or six more miserable weeks of winter. it all depends on the legend drid prognosticate are punxsutawney phil. did he see his slad doe this morning? >> so you faithful, there is no shadow to see. an early spring for you and me. >> i'll believe it when i see it. you heard phil what he had to say. what about chuck the groundhog? he's staten island zoo's prognosticator. he also predicted an early spring.

claiming responsibility for the suicide bombing of the u.s. embassy in turkey. and new security camera footage from moments before the attack in ankara shows the man identified as the bomber just before he blew himself up. the revolutionary people's liberation party calls him a martyr. friday's blast killed a turkish guard and wounded a television journalist. egypt's football season kicked off today about the matches were the first since the deadly riot broke out a year ago in port said. today's game were played in security military stadiums with no fans present. meanwhile, professors anger at the pace of democratic reform clashed with police in front of the presidential palace this weekend. one person was killed. nuclear weapons in the hands of rogue countries is a threat that world leaders are watching closely. and north korea in particular is getting a lot of close attention over fears it could launch at
12:12 pm
any moment. cnn international anchor jon mann has more on that. >> do you want the good news or the pad news first? the a bangs of what we know, north korea can set off nuclear explosions. it has done that twice before in 2006 near the town pugggyeri and in 2009 not far away. now they plan to do it again. also, they can put a rocket into space and did that last december and says it will send up more, but do a nuclear program and a rocket program together give them a weapon? no, not yet. first, there is the missile to deliver the weapon. keep in mind the missile doesn't have to just go up, it has to come down, as well in one piece. north korea has never managed to do that. and it has to come down down near or at a target. there's no indication that north korea is anywhere close to the kind of guidance system that
12:13 pm
would enable it to do that. then there's the matter of what the missile will be carrying. it needs to have a nuclear device small enough to fit inside of a warhead. there's no indication that they're close to anything small enough to be at the top of a rocket or any rocket big enough to carry what they'd have to carry up top. and any weapon sitting inside a rocket warhead would still have to be tough enough to survive heat, vibration and the other rigors of a space trip. >> so their nuclear devices are dangerous. if you took one of these test devices and set it off on wall street, it would destroy most of lower manhattan but it's not deliverable. they can't really bring it any place. so it doesn't yet represent a threat to any country outside of north korea. >> there is every reason to be impressed that a desperately poor corrupt like north korea has gotten as far as it has. every reason to be worried that it is still at work. but right now, north korea is still working with trouble
12:14 pm
withsome technology doing the bakes. and luckily for its neighbors, the basics do not equal a working deliverable nuclear weapon. back to you. >> that was jonathan mann, thank you very much for that. your 401(k) probably made some money this week. the dow hit 14,000. the market hasn't seen in more than five years. we'll look at what's behind the rise just ahead.

just making its debut on tv, the third spiderman movie was the box office champ. and the dow jones was hovering around 14,000. fast forward five years, and that spiderman is just a distant memory but the dow has come roaring back. allison cossack explains.
12:18 pm
>> well, miguel, party like it's 2007. on friday, the dow closed above 14,000. it's a milestone we haven't seen since 2007. but here at the nyse, we hardly heard a peep from traders when it happened. no hooting like in years past. maybe it's the been there, done that attitude. still the dow lit the mark thanks to upbeat economic data. wall street saw the january jobs report as good enough even though investors really expected better. also consumer confidence and manufacturing rose and that pushed stocks over the edge. but the momentum has been there for a while. the dow has been powering higher ever since it hit rock bottom in 2009, it fell as low as 6,500. so hitting 14,000 is a reminder of the comeback, but most analysts we talk to say it doesn't mean much. instead, they've got their eyes on the next big one. >> these are certainly nice round numbers. i mean i personally think it will be more of an event once we
12:19 pm
break through that october 2007 all-time high, that that is more of a milestone than just going through a thousand marker, which we, again, have done before. >> and it's that all-time high of 14,164 that we're watching for now. miguel, back to you. >> well, tomorrow at 5:00 p.m. eastern i'm going to talk with our wall street guy about this big jump in the markets. he'll tell us why some people are worried we're headed for what could be a big drop tomorrow at 5:00 eastern. it's official. canada will be penniless by monday. no, they're not going broke, just not issuing coins at the penny coins anymore. over time they'll disappear from cash registers. what happens if you have something that costs let's say $1.03, it gets rounded down to a dollar. ditching the penny is nothing new. australia did it back in 1966. in canada can go penniless, could you go a whole day without

12:28 pm
>> you made this commercial for doritos. tell us about this commercial. >> it was a fun experience. ben and i i were eating lunch one day and i said ben, it's really funny how my goat it's chips. it's just funny. we were sitting there eating lunch and benny decided we would start looking up goats. i owned moose for a year now. we say this is funny. i mean, it's just funny. they're screaming and you look up goats and they're crunching. >> he's cute and adorable but he is a killer goat in this commercial. >> he is. >> how did you get this goat to be so ominous. >> that was ben's direction i think more than anything. >> your goat whisperer though. but honestly, it was a lot of patience and it was a lot of good fortune i guess. we kind of lucked out in that moose was kind of in the mood to do what we wanted him to do. so i honestly don't have an answer. we were just really -- we used his brother kudzu who is also a

12:31 pm
mustard, thy curry wings. this sunday more than 1.2 billion wings are headed on their last flight. while americans want wings, the players want rings, super bowl rings. bands of gold and diamonds worth several thousand dollars apiece. if a player wanted to sell it though, he would get a helping hand from collectors who would likely pay thousands more to get their fingers on one. speaking of thousands, you would need about two grand just to get in the door of the superdome. that's the price of the cheapest seats. you'll need tissue for when your nose starts bleeding. the cost of commercials will bleed some businesses of profit. the price of a 30-second spot, nearly $4 million but with exposure like that the benefits could add up. carl an zuz, cnn atlanta. >> all right. it's crunch time. time for the players to get ready and the fans to get nervous. we're bringing in all the action live at 4:00 p.m. eastern today. rachel nichols and ernie johnson junior have a special of our special kickoff in new orleans.
