because there is great excitement about the new president. there is also great opposition. that is a big part of this story. we've been speaking today with a number of people from the bay area who have come to washington to make their voices heard, whether for or against. but also we've run into some officials from the bay area, including the mayor of san jose who is not here because of the inauguration. he joined mayor ed lee and a number of other bay area mayors. i spoke to him a while ago and spoke about where we are as a nation and what he's witnessing here in washington. >> as a region, we can show the country that ideological differences don't mean that we have to have divided communities, that we can tackle challenges together. >> would you like to see more of that at the national level? >> we certainly would. i know there's a different dynamic that works inside the beltway than at home. frankly, i'm in love with local government. i feel very blessed.

well, this has been a rough week for oakland sports fans. first, the raiders officially filed relocation papers to move to las vegas. they need the votes of 34 of 42 league owners to make the move. meanwhile, ronnie lott and the fortress group released this statement that said, "we are in this game and we are playing to win." virtually all of the media reports about the raiders relocation seemed to indicate this is a foregone conclusion, vegas is gone and this is going to be their home. conspicuous in all of this has been ronnie lott. we asked why and the answer is lott's group has been advised to stay quiet, let the vegas group
f fizz out on its own. there are a number of red flags in that vegas proposal. among them, projections that over 20,000 fans would fly into vegas for a three-night stay for each and every home. think about this. 20,000 fans are going to fly in to watch the raiders play in jacksonville or tennessee or buffalo or detroit? for the next 30 years? other issues, the involvement of casino owner may still be in the deal when nfl ratings are declining as we speak and the idea that oakland is a better market to be in and another relocation on top of rams and chargers is a bad idea. when you put this all together, will it work out in the favor of the die hards in oakland? we'll never know. we'll find out a lot more in march. pizza hut is hiring ahead of
next month's super bowl. the pizza chain will put 11,000 people to work just in time for super bowl sunday. super bowl sunday has been big for takeout and delivery. sales racked up $12 million in sales. all right. this is president obama's final full day in office and there are a lot of good-byes to be said. >> yes, kristen sze is here with a look at social media posts before the changing of the guard. >> ama and larry, let's start with this by the h.u.d. secretary julio castro. >> it's moving out day here. >> indeed. all pictures of the obama families have been taken off the wall in the west wing. michelle obama says good-bye with this tweet. "being your first lady has been the honor of a lifetime. from the bottom of my heart,
thank you." and the white house tweeted about the 330 pardons and about his legacy, including the unemployment rate cut in half during his years in office. as for mr. obama, he posted on facebook a letter to the american people. the last paragraph, take a look. "remember, america's not the project of any one person. the single most powerful word in our democracy is the word we. we the people, we shall overcome, yes we can." and i also want to show you president obama said if you want to keep in touch, you can connect with him via the barack obama's foundation website. larry and ama? >> kristen, thank you. well, sandhya

still provide them. but for now, those are the benefits that are on the chopping block. the consumer financial protection bureau is continuing its crackdown on illegal overdraft fees. by law, banks may not charge for overdraft protection unless a customer specifically opts in for the overdraft protection. overdraft purchases are simply declined. the agency filed a complaint against tcf financial of minnesota claiming it led customers to believe overdraft protection was mandatory. customers were charged a $35 fee if they had more than in their accounts. the bank has stopped offering bonuses to employees who get customers to opt in for the service. now the bureau wants the refund for those who paid the excessive fees. the bureau spearheaded the law requiring the opt-in claiming banks were raking in excessive fees from unwary customers. for the second year in a row,

preventing cervical cancer in women. but infection with human papiloma virus can affect men, too. and now new research points to how common this is in men. more than 1500 men in a large national survey, testing them for the presence of the virus. they found that nearly half were infected with hpv and a quarter were infected with a form of the virus known to cause cancer in men. young men who were vaccinated were the least likely to be infected but though hpv vaccination is available to men, only one in ten in this study said they had received it. not surprising since only recently have medical organizations begun to spread the word that men, too, can benefit from the hpv shot. all the more reason to make sure that teen anded a le adolescenc get the same protection.
