a group of germans and britains planning to plot against european cities. bob orr is following this for us and joins us with the latest. bob, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, maggie. u.s. drone strikes inside pakistan apparently targeted operatives training for attacks against europe. sources believe a german terror cell at the center of the current threats and pakistani officials now say that some of those killed were german and u.s. officials caution it's unclear if thashl connected to the plots and say the threats remain active. security forces throughout europe remain on guard as intelligence officials work to stop attacks against major cities. sources say al qaeda and fill yated terror groups are plotting multiple attacks likely targeting transit systems, tourist attractions and popular not els and they fear some have been dispatched and the ill no
7:03 am
hard, specific information as to timing or targets. >> we're in the middle sequence of this plot where we know it's under way. we know it's directed by al qaeda but we don't know when it may be executed and we don't know who will perpetrate it. >> reporter: japan echoed alert from the u.s. state department warning travelers that much of europe could be a danger zone. german officials called the warnings alarmist. attorney general holder conceded the threat information is vague and added -- >> we have i think sufficient information to justify the issuing of the alert. >> reporter: tourists heard the warnings. >> trying to keep an open view and, you know, i keep my eye out. >> reporter: travelers are not canceling european trips. >> can't give into these threats. you have to stick to your plans. run your course. otherwise they win. don't they? >> reporter: now there is still no intelligence connecting the current european threats to any new plots against the united states. but officials say the long-term
7:04 am
desire of al qaeda to hit us again is undiminished. maggie? >> thank you, bob. now 7:03. here's harry. >> now to politics. the midterm elections, four weeks from today and the candidates are back home hitting the air waves with some feisty new campaign ads. congressional correspondent nancy cordes has the latest. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, harry. and there are a few recent developments that lead democrats to hope that their losses this election season may not be as bad as they had feared. >> this is barbara boxer's california. trillions in reckless wasteful spending. destroying small business. >> reporter: republicans are pouring $2 million into the california senate race. >> killing jobs. crushing hopes. >> reporter: after polls showed democratic senator barbara boxer reclaiming her lead. >> the pundits have already decided that the democrats are losers. we are going to lose lose,
7:05 am
lose. there's only one problem with that. the voters haven't voted yet. >> reporter: democratic senator pat ri murray has also seen a rebound in her numbers. as have democratic candidates for governor in illinois ohio and california. >> starting to see that around the country because a lot of democrats held their advertising money until the last couple of months of the election when people are paying attention the most. >> reporter: democrats use their fund raising advantage to dominate the air waves in september, mostly with negative personal ads. >> number appeared on the d.c. madame's phone list. >> reporter: at least one republican, tea party-backed delaware senate candidate christine o'donnell has a new ad that challenges the negative press. >> i'm not a witch. i'm nothing you have heard. i'm you. none of us are perfect. >> reporter: but now that october is here both sides are unleashing everything they've got. >> would you lie about serving in a war? >> we have learned something
7:06 am
very important since the days i served in vietnam. >> dick blumenthal did, again and again. >> reporter: even the president is entering the ad wars. >> new orleans needs senator richman in congress. >> reporter: he taped the first spot of the election season for a democratic congressional candidate in new orleans. and why did that candidate get the special treatment? because he's from one of only about eight districts around the country where democrats are a shot of winning a seat currently held by the gop. harry? >> nancy cordes, thank you very much. joining us is political analyst john dickerson. john, good morning. >> good morning, harry. >> let's talk about the senate races that are so tight, so important out there. especially this one in connecticut that nancy was just talking about. who are the people and what's at stake? >> richard blumenthal he's the attorney general. long-time politician in connecticut. quite popular. supposed to have the race in the bag.
7:07 am
linda mcmahon, ceo of world wrestling federation called him a liar. on tv we saw that ad. she is running on the business experience. blumenthal saying in government you can protect jobs too. that's what i have done. >> this was a seat supposed to be so safe. chris dodd held this an eternity almost. >> that's right. in this crazy year where things moved around nobody expected linda mcmahon. she spent a lot of her own money and saying i can make jobs and that's what people want to hear. >> really that makes the difference. hit nevada if you don't mind. this is a really really interesting race too. >> well, harry reid is the biggest target out there. right? incumbent, the leader of the democrats in the senate. he's in trouble. sharron angle at long time assemblywoman or six years, is a tea partynwchu candidate and she was recently caught on tape, there's another tea party candidate eating away at her vote and she had a private meeting saying get out of the race because if you're in the race, you take my
7:08 am
votes and give harry reid the win. >> also badmouthing the republican establishment which makes it so interesting. she is, you know a personification of this battle within the republican party. >> that's right. to behave in private the way you do outloud, that's what she said. the republicans have no principles slightly awkward she is in washington raising money with those republicans this week. >> all of these senate races i think particularly interesting. manchin, very popular figure as governor in the race of his life. >> democrats thought they would win. this is a red state, though. obama lost it by 13 states. john raese. the f you like business men, elect me. >> this is also robert byrd's seat which is the longest, you know, person to hold a senate seat in the history of the country and not quite a gimme but a gimme for the democrats. >> popular guy.
7:09 am
long time serving. the byrd coat tails don't exist anymore. >> all right. let's look at the senate then. talk about how many seats are really up for grabs and you can see here are the democrats in charge. here are the republicans in the minority. how many are we talking about? magic number is ten. there are no republican senate seats really in danger but 13 democratic seats in danger so republicans have to take ten of those. they have about six or seven kind of that they can count on. those last three quite tough. some of these democratic senate seats looking better for democrats. >> then let's look at the house then, too. this is -- here undo my drawing. sorry. how many seats? here's the big, blue democratic majority. and the republicans in the minority. what kind of numbers are we talking about here? >> magic number in the house is 39 seats republicans have to take away from the democrats. they've got about 20 25 in the
7:10 am
bag because of history and because democrats really have seats -- very good 39. have seats in republican districts shouldn't have democratic representatives. that leaves about 15 to 20 that republican haves to take away from democrats. >> here's what's interesting ate. nancy talked about it in her piece this morning. republicans wanted this election to happen today. yesterday. two weeks ago. because there really does seem to be some of the mojo they had built up over the last month or two seems to be eroding a little bit. >> that's right. democrats are coming home. even republicans admit this. democrats usually break late in the campaigns and congress is off the tv. no longer bickering about legislation. congress is quite unpopular. the leaders republican and democrat are unpopular. to the extent they're off the tv, that helps democrats because people aren't reminded of what they don't like. >> that's a plus 39 by the way. all right. i really appreciate it. erica hill is here at the news
7:11 am
desk. >> i could tell that's a 39. don't worry. good morning. good morning to everyone at home. we begin in the southwest where more severe weather is expected today. yesterday, strong winds and heavy rains hit parts of new mexico arizona and nevada. that rain causing flooding in area east of las vegas. and in phoenix, severe thunderstorms forced more than 30 airline flights to divert from sky harbor airport. lightning struck a house in mesa, arizona. this young man was inside. >> and then you went outside and these big houses were falling down on fire. we were like huh oh. the roof is on fire. >> an accurate assessment there. the lightning sparked a fire. no one was hurt. the federal government is taking a swipe at credit card companies. the justice department suing visa, mastercard and american express yesterday for alleged anti-competitive practices. justice officials say the companies prevented merchants from offering discounts or rebates for using a particular
7:12 am
card. american express is fighting the suit. visa and mastercard have already settled. in paris, a court found jerome curbielle in one of the biggest market frauds sentenced to three years in prison and repay the staggering $6.7 billion his bank lost. the federal government this morning out with new and tougher crash test ratings for 2011 model cars. the stringent tests include new technologies and a side crash pole for a collision with a tree or telephone pole. of the 34 vehicles tested only 2, four-door bmw 5 series and hyundai sonata got the highest ratings. the lowest to nissan versa. a footage of a woman that survived a horrifying accident. see here on this video, walking in the street. watch now as she gets hit by a speeding car. she was thrown into the air. lands at least 25 feet down the
7:13 am
street. incredibly, she suffered only minor injuries. and some more video of a daredevil that got very close to a fiery volcano. the video is viral online and shows extreme climber bristol wearing a protective suit just yards from a lake of lava. see him there on the left side of the screen. it's a lake of lava on an island near australia in the south pacific. there are plenty of warnings to tell visitors to keep the distance. he wanted the thrill of venturing inside the volcano. we do not recommend you ever try that. finally, new optimism this morning that the 33 miners trapped deep underground in chile may soon be rescued. seth doane has more. >> reporter: the trapped miners may be freed much sooner than expected. so says chile's president. in a radio address broadcast in chile, he said he hopes they're
7:14 am
out by mid-october. that could mean the rescue would come two months earlier than originally predicted. at the drill site though, that suggestion was downplayed by the rescue operation's technical chief who said -- i understand that everyone's wish, myself included, is to get them out as soon as possible. however, we cannot afford to run any risks. trapped below 700,000 tons of rock, the miners are reportedly getting laundry service, three hot meals a day, sometimes with ice cream for dessert and believe it or not they can watch tv on a tiny projector. comforts of home lowered through a narrow shaft. they're on regular work shifts half a mile to clear debris from the three rescue tunnels being drilled toward them. exercising to prepare for their rescue and even reportedly getting media training too.
7:15 am
to deal with the hundreds of reporters expected to cover their rescue. seth doane, cbs news, new york. frito lay is bagging the new snack bag 18 months after it was introduced and unveiled with fan fare. the sun chips bag made of compostible plant material. the problem, though, as you may be able to hear too noisy. people said it sounded like breaking glass. they're working on a better version. the real issue is it made

7:31 am
that straddles the u.s./mexico border when she says they were ambushed by gunmen. erica hill is here now with the latest. good morning. >> good morning, maggie. there are new questions this morning as to exactly what happened. police in mexico want to know if what tiffany hartley says happened was actually what did happen. there is still no sign of american tourist david hartley. this, four days after he was reportedly shot in the head by suspected pirates. it happened on a lake along the mexican border. >> hello? >> ma'am. okay. are you sure that your husband got shot? >> yes. in his head. >> reporter: his wife tiffany made that desperate 911 call after reportedly racing to his aid. but says she was chased away by gunfire. >> did you see anybody? >> there were three boats. >> reporter: hartley is now presumed dead. his body though has not been recovered. and now mexican authorities are questioning whether the attack took place at all. saying, quote, we are not sure. we are not certain that the
7:32 am
incident happened the way that they are telling us. why hartley's body has not been found, especially after they were told he was wearing a life vest. and also why there's no sign of his jetski. in fact no physical evidence a crime was committed. security experts say americans traveling to mexico or other potentially dangerous regions should stay alert. >> be aware of what the local conditions are. what the threats are. what you need to know. >> reporter: meantime, in hartley's home town of loveland colorado amid the questions there is mourning. >> i assumed david had had an accident. because he likes to go fast. but, then he said no he was shot. >> reporter: what exactly happened to david hartley remains a mystery. >> tiffany hartley said they were about three miles in the mexican side of the lake when all of this happened. again, the investigation continues this morning. and there are further questions so we'll look for further updates. >> all right, erica, thank you. tiffany hartley joins us from
7:33 am
texas this morning along with david's mother and father pam and dennis, and his sister niki. my condolences to all of you. thank you so much for taking the time this morning. >> thank you. >> thank you for having us. >> you're welcome. first off, tiffany, i would like to give you the opportunity to respond to these new questions that the district attorney in mexico is raising. he's saying that he's not sure that things happened the way that you claim, because there's no evidence of a shooting and they would have found david by now because he was wearing a life vest. i know that must be very difficult for you to hear. but can you understand why they're asking these questions? >> i can understand why they would be asking the questions. but, they haven't been looking, either. as far as we know we don't think they have been looking. and there is -- we understand the possibility that the people who did this probably have him.
7:34 am
and that's why maybe they can't find him. >> pam and dennis as david's parents, what do you think about the direction that this investigation is taking? pam? >> we need to get on the mexican side to search for david. there's been no searching on that side much the lake. i mean, we're pleading to mexican president, to governor perry, to president obama, to hillary, help us bring our son tiffany's husband, home. it's like we need to get over there and hunt for him. if nobody's hunting, how can he be found? >> niki i see you holding your sister-in-law's hand. do you support her 100% this morning? >> 150% 1,000%. there's no doubt in our mind we
7:35 am
stand behind her. she's just not a sister-in-law, she's a sister. >> tiffany, you were returning from a day of sightseeing with david when this happened. i know that you had lived in mexico for three years before moving back to the u.s. a couple of months ago. did you know that there had been a spate of robberies on the lake? and did you have any concerns about going out that day? >>

i can do more of what matters to me.

7:40 am
tiger woods was in wales, playing for the ryder cup this weekend, even though the americans did not win, he made some amazing shots over the course of the tournament. this one was yesterday. wow. take a look at that ball runs right in the cup. he played extraordinarily well. but it's one bizarre shot that has a lot of people talking. take a look at this. a miscue i mean he chunks this ball leads to tiger's shot heading directly at the photographer. and luckily, the photographer survived the encounter and joins us now to tell us about it in an exclusive interview. and mark pain is that photographer. good morning, sir. >> hi harry. >> so this was saturday right? and tiger was in a foursome? >> yes. this was saturday. the middle day of what is the ryder cup, and he's played his
7:41 am
second shot and there is a lot of water on the 18th at celteric manor. he landed on the side. a big place was made cleared to have the shot and us photographers, we knelt down by the spectator seats, and were just waiting for him to normally chip in within two or three inches, but not this time. >> right. and we should explain because of the way that he was shooting, you know to the green, and was what we would call a chip shot. it was a short shot. and something that was -- the ball, the trajectory of the ball, was to go up like high up in the air, and instead of going high up in the air and over your head, what happened? >> he sort of normally you know, 99 times out of 100 or probably with tiger 999 times out of 1,000 he would chip that within two or three inches of the hole. and when we're working with tiger, we've never had any
7:42 am
problems getting that near to him, because we know there's never going to be an issue. but, all the grass had been trampled by the spectators and he just seemed to catch it really wrong, and it digs out to his right, and it just headed straight towards me hit my camera, then hit me and landed at my feet. >> wow. >> and tiger's face he couldn't believe it. i think he couldn't believe he'd taken that shot really. >> there's the second shot. the shot after the ball hits the camera, he's looking like this is not the way i planned this. yeah. >> his face looks like thunder, doesn't it? he's not happy. >> let me ask you this because as you were setting up you're kneeling down in front of him, did tiger or his caddie steve williams say anything to you like, you're really too close or you need to move back a little bit? >> they did for a little while, then we all moved back. tiger's caddie steve, he's got a reputation for being very very strict with us photographers. you know. but we were all in a perfect
7:43 am
passion. the marshals had agreed where we were and everyone was absolutely fine. there was a very wide angle for him to play a shot in towards the green. so, you know didn't work out. >> how did you have the presence of mind or did you have the presence or was it just instinct that made you click the shot? >> it's pretty much instinct. because as a photographer it's a great moment there to see tiger amongst the fans so close, and it's great for them as well, to see it. but you're totally focusing on tiger, his expressions because, once the ball goes past you you still have moments to capture. he can cut away. do whatever he normally does. but you just focus totally on tiger. >> and the camera is okay? you have the camera with you? it didn't break the lens? >> the camera's fine. nikon d3s. it's taken a bit of a knock but it's absolutely perfect. >> and what a story to tell. mark pain thank you very very much for sharing your story and showing that spectacular picture. we do appreciate it. >> thank you very much.

when asked if their partner climaxed during sex believed that they had. but only 64% of women actually had. which means -- >> or said they had. >> right, said they had. 21% of men have been misled. >> isn't this the whole thing about lying we were talking about the other day. >> does this surprise, anybody? >> no. no. in all honesty, if you think about in popular culture how often this particular subject is brought up and this is always sort of the punch line to the joke. oh, she was faking it. >> right. >> well as they say, sometimes stereotypes joke they're based in reality. >> why would women lie? >> that's the bigger question? >> why would women -- >> to make the man feel good. because the man feels like a man. >> right. >> if the woman says that. >> i don't -- >> but i think it does highlight a problem in marriages. why don't you feel comfortable enough in your marriage to just say, that's not really working
7:49 am
for me. >> you're inadequate darling. >> no! see that's the way -- >> something you could address more in a marriage than you could, perhaps, in a relationship where you're not quite at that point yet. >> yes, true. anyway. 6,000 people were surveyed and the reason they included 14-year-olds is because they also studied condom use, and teenagers who are having sex are having safe sex, the majority of them. so parents, now you're aware. >> don't lie. we'll be right back. you're watching "the early show" on cbs.

state budget cuts are crippling my classroom so i can't believe the sacramento politicians cut a backroom deal that will give our state's wealthiest corporations a new billion dollar tax give-away, a new handout that can only mean larger class sizes and even more teacher layoffs. but passing prop 24 can change all that. prop 24 repeals the unfair corporate give-away and puts our priorities first. vote yes on prop 24, because it's time to give our schools a break, not the big corporations.

8:12 am
waistline goes. recent study out of mayo clinic was interesting. they compares where people gained weight where they gained fat and found those who gained fat on lower body specifically thighs, talking men and women, may, get ready, may actually have some protective factors against those obesity complications. we're not trying to imply that you want -- >> that fats a good thing. >> -- that you want to gain fat around your legs but an area we'll be seeing more research in. stay away from gaining weight in your midsection. >> isn't it true the more belly fat you have the greater chance it's between your organs. >> exactly. when we do c.a.t. scans, you can see fat between those organ. it's called visserceral fat, and that's dangerous for your health. >> question two, fact or fiction, you can spot-reduce fat. absolutely not, i've been trying to get rid of this post-pregnancy pooch. >> most people know this, but in
8:13 am
the past people did think you could spot reduce that was the term. but most people know that everyone is individual where they lose weight tends to be characteristic for them. a lot of people lose it in their face first, and the saying is we're not doing crunches or face exercises. bottom line lose weight gradually throughout your body with individual differences taken into account. some people may gain it or lose it faster in their legs but definitely cannot spot-reduce. >> fact or fiction, number three, sleep loss can limit fat loss. well this one i confess, i saw the study out today which confirms that i already knew because we live it on the schedule, absolutely true. >> exactly. we have been hearing more about this because not only does america have an obese didity problem, america has a sleep problem. this study looked at people who dot more or less than 8 1/2 hours of sleep, their cartarget number. those who got less than 8 1/2
8:14 am
during night were hungrier during the day and they lost 40% muscle mass. which is a problem, you want to keep lean muscle mass. it works two ways. you'll be hungrier during the day and limit your fat loss and lose muscle. big problem. >> does anyone realistically get eight hours of sleep anymore? >> i do. >> you do? >> but that's because i go to bed at 9:00. everything's a trade-off. sleep is critically important. it does stimulate the hunger hormone during the day. when dieting, diet exercise and sleep. >> yeah. a perfect world. >> exactly. >> let's get to the next question. fact or fiction, you can work off a month of bad eating. a lot of people with the holidays coming up are going to be eating poorly around thanksgiving and christmas. i'm going to say fact. >> you actually cannot work off a month of bad eat, sorry. very important, i want to emphasize, it's never too late to reverse bad habits or damage from say, a month or two months
8:15 am
of bad eating and no exercise. this study found that the damage done in our bodies in our fat cells, persists even up to months or years after you have that bad month. so really it's day-to-day hour-to-hour meal-to-meal you want good habits in place for all of the time. >> dr. jennifer ashton really good stuff. >> the deadly danger facing your kids on the soccer field. important information that all parents need to know, when we come back. this is "the early show" on cbs. cbs "health watch" sponsored by prevacid 24 hour.

more than 14 million kids of all ages play organized soccer in this country. but there is a serious safety hazard on the field that could be putting them at risk. "early" show consumer correspondent susan koeppen is here with an important warning for parents. >> good morning, harry. the problem is with portable goals. there are half a million of them being used today. they can weigh up to 400 pounds. and if they aren't secured properly, they can tip over. >> he loved soccer. he was awesome on the field. >> reporter: 10-year-old hayden ellias was a star soccer player. but during a game playing goalie, something went terribly wrong. >> we could see him laying lieless on the ground with the goal on top of him. >> yes, my son is in a goal down at millbrook high school and he is down. >> what's wrong with him? >> a goal has fallen on him. >> what fell on him?
8:19 am
>> a goal. >> i knew it was bad. >> reporter: somehow, the goal had tipped over crushing hayden. he was pronounced dead at the hospital. >> i really at the time thought it was a freak accident. i was calling it a freak accident. but it's not a freak accident. >> reporter: according to the consumer product safety commission, 34 children have been killed by soccer goal tipovers since 1979. 200 kids are injured every year. >> it's something that can happen -- >> in an instant. >> reporter: kevin kaye is a certified soccer referee. he showed me just how easily a soccer goal can tip. >> you think i can be able to push this over? >> absolutely. >> oh, yeah, there it goes. wow. and i didn't push that very hard at all. soccer goals, which are heaviest in the front, can sometimes tip over without warning. in other cases, they tip when kids swing on them. these are videos we found on youtube. of teens doing just that.
8:20 am
to protect players, goals are supposed to be weighted down. with sandbags or held down with stakes. so the bags are on it's weighted down. you can actually hang from this and it won't tip over? >> that's correct. and if i put weight on the front of this goal you'll see it's not going to go. it's not going to swing. >> reporter: kaye says referees are required to check goals before every game. >> check the goal for sturdyness. >> reporter: to make sure they're properly secured. so if you don't see any of these things holding down a goal. what should happen? >> either find an option to weight that goal down or no game. >> reporter: as for mary ellias after her son died in 2007 she started a website called hayden's goal. to educate parents on how they can keep their kids safe on the field. >> i promised hayden his death would not be in vain. because nobody else should have horrible memories. >> and mary has other children who play soccer.
8:21 am
she and her family they always which sandbags with them to games, in case they encounter unanchored goals. harry? >> i would say, especially at practices, parents, how can they get involved and make sure their kids stay safe? >> if you're taking your child to the field, and whether it's a practice scrimmage game whatever, do your own survey. walk around the goal and take a look. you may feel like you're being dramatic, but your kid's safety is at risk here. and you're a certified soccer referee. i know that you do that. you walk around. >> any time you get ready to ref a game you survey the entire field. the most important thing to do is go to those goals, and as the ref in your piece said if that is not secured properly, you don't start the game. >> we found the videos on youtube of the kids hanging on the goals and they're laughing as they tip over. but i've seen cases where, in hayden's case, he died. i've seen kids with broken legs have had serious contusions. so it's a really serious matter. >> it looked like just as a point of fact especially with those more portable types of
8:22 am
goals, just how easy was it? >> it was not hard at all. i mean, i was actually surprised how easy it was to tip over that goal. i used two fingers, and just one gentle push, and the thing tipped over. and that was a pretty substantial goal. for an indoor soccer field, but it was pretty big. >> all right. these are things that parents really need to keep in mind. and you know there's not always a ref. and there's not necessarily always a certified coach out there. when i got my ref certification, the most important part, along with the laws of the game was safety certification, and we're not allowed to go out there without certification. >> take matters as a parent into your own hands. you're putting your kids out on the field. you want to make sure they're safe. do a quick survey. >> susan koeppen as always thank you so much. for more on soccer safety all you need to do is go to our website, that's earlyshow.cbsnews.com. and still ahead on "the early show," the social network is already becoming the must-see movie of the year.

for both of you -- >> that's a compliment. >> well it seemed to be the truth to me. both of you guys play real people. how do you prepare to play mark zuckerberg? >> a few ways. the first is to go off this wonderful script that aaron sorkin wrote this incredible script and created these amazing characters who like you said are based on real people. in addition to using his scripts there's countless videos and interviews with mark zuckerberg. he's a very public person. >> so you looked at that? >> i watched everything i could find of course. >> you play sean parker who famously or infamously created napster and had a very interesting life thereafter. >> sure. >> is that him or is that an amalgam of people you've met in an interesting business life? >> you mean in performance of the character? >> yeah. >> i -- i kind of boringly mirror what jesse had to say about how this kind of played out. i think it's important to point

out that aaron sorkin who is not only dazzles you with his dialogue, his research on these people was overwhelmingly accurate. and he spent a lot of time -- >> there's a certain sort of smarm factor to your character. >> i don't want to pretend that i know who this person really is. because i've never spent time with him. >> right. >> that would be irresponsible as a human being to assume. >> sure. >> i can tell you that what i found in the film was a lot of tasty things to play with in the character for sure. >> you do smarm well. >> i will -- >> take that as a compliment. >> my mother will be very proud that you said that on national television. >> on and off-screen, really. >> it is all the same. >> as you exhibited, as you looked at so much that's been written about it just in the last couple of weeks and even months what is it like to be in the middle of -- of this
8:37 am
phenomenon? >> i feel like any time you work on a movie you kind of think it's the greatest thing in the world. and then it comes out and the audience tells you otherwise. you know. this has been kind of the next experience where you feel pride doing it is kind of shared by the audience. that's really a nice experience. >> do either of you know really anything about a social network, or i can't imagine either of you are actually on facebook? >> we don't personally. >> have you looked over somebody's shoulder to see what it's like? >> yeah but they were like hunched over and i couldn't see. >> yeah. >> literally this close. >> you also have going back to aaron sorkin this script is like kind of on fire brilliant and some of the great, the lines that both of you get to deliver, you don't get to deliver them in very many movies very often. >> forever. >> as the case may be. >> yeah. >> the other thing that is
8:38 am
along with this being such an important sort of conversation that it's engendered in the culture, is, you know it's created this sort of deafening oscar buzz. what is it like to try to think in the midst of the deafening oscar buzz? >> very awkward and uncomfortable. >> well, i don't know if it's possible to like speculate, you know, what awards it might, you know, kind of receive. but we're just happy that the reaction is really nice to the movie. >> yeah, yeah. it is -- it's what i said at the very beginning. it's like an almost like a gangster film but it takes place -- i mean there's so much energy in it i guess. >> i think it helps. i think it helps that you have such a masterful filmmaker, you know behind it and sort of pulling the strings on it.
8:39 am
obviously thrilled us with filming that he put out. he has a way of filming in a very, very smart way. >> really fun stuff. really fun stuff. you ever going to make a record again? >> i don't know. i -- >> come on. >> i'm sure at some point i'll make a record. i don't know what capacity -- i obviously love making music. >> yeah well it's been several years now and people want to know. >> well i can tell you that when i know, you'll definitely know. >> we'll take that as a maybe. >> it's a strong maybe, though. >> all right, very good. great to see you both. and congratulations. >> thank you. >> phenomenal movie. >> thank you. >> all right. now here's maggie. >> all right, harry, thank you. on our top ten list of dates on the calendar this sunday's could just be number one. it's 10-10-10 october 10th, 2010 and that is sparking some travel promotions that could save you a whole lot more than ten bucks. cbs news travel editor peter greenberg is here with the details. good morning. >> good morning, maggie.
8:40 am
>> so these deals are a perfect ten, would you say? >> but you've got to put them in some historical perspective. let's go back to july 7th of '07, 7-7-7, that was a lucky day. and more people get married or engaged on that day. the travel industry took note of that. three times more than on a normal day and there were a lot of wedding promotions around that. so now 10-10-10 a wonderful opportunity move unsold inventory. it's a nice gimmick. >> ah. that's what i'm going to say. who cares if it's a gimmick if i'm really going to save money. >> that's right. >> is there one, i know you've been doing a lot of these. the number one deal to be had? >> well, it's actually in the turks and caicos. it's a hotel called the tuscan. >> what day of the week is that? >> sunday. you can book it between now and then but it's good for a long period of time until about december 23rd. they'll give you an airfare credit of up to $1,010.10 for whatever you paid to get down there. that's a great deal. >> that is a great deal. you also found some great hotel
8:41 am
deals that don't include the travel. just accommodations. >> that's right. if you stay at a number of marriott or renaissance hotels in the caribbean or mexico you pay the regular rate for one night, each succeeding night, ten bucks. not bad. if you're in the renaissance -- >> are they jacking up the first night's price? >> no it's the regular rate. but you advertise it the regular rate is $215 plus $10, now it's just $108 so not bad. right here in new jersey they've got a deal called triple tens. this is for people who are really feeling lucky. >> it's a casino. >> you stay on the tenth floor, and they give you about $310.10 deals with discounts on manicures and pedicures. but your gaming losses are your gaming losses. >> right. >> and then in belize, there's an interesti i one there $110 a night for the room there. but that's also good through next year to march 31st. you've got to book it now. but it extends. >> that's smart. >> if you want to upgrade that is $1,10.10.
8:42 am
that number just keeps coming back. and the coolest one, though is on the website cheapcaribbean.com. they've got a deal in the dominican republic $10 a night all-inclusive. >> have you seen this place? >> it's really nice. it includes the room. >> okay. fantastic. a lot of people are jump on that. all right you created a sort of a grab bag of the best deals out there. there's one in st. martin 10% discounts. there's a crazy one -- >> this is a 10% discount on the wedding package? >> it's good until november 10th. so if you think fast. >> all right. >> i said it was a gimmick. hotel victor they're doing a facebook deal right, they're going to try to get 10,000 fans. when they get to the 10,000th fan, if you're that person, you get ten free nights. but this is the one, you want a silly one? >> yeah. >> coco key water parks. if you're celebrating your 10th birthday or your 100th birthday they give you free admission. if i live to be 100, i'm not
8:43 am
going to a water park i'm sorry. >> why not, peter? >> it will be the final slide. that's it good-bye, done. >> perhaps. >> but the 10-year-olds will -- >> exactly. >> will take advantage of that one. are there deals to be had every time of year? things that you should be asking for regardless of the date? >> regardless of the date here's what you need to do. advertising point is only a departure point. ask, can my kids stay free. can my kids eat free? and in urban hotels or resorts will they throw in free parking. it's a huge deal. remember an unsold room is revenue they'll never recoup when the sun rises. ask and guaranteed. can my kids stay free eat free and throw in free parking. >> awesome. thank you, peter. thanks maggie. the american kitchen was a very different place back in the 1890s when fannie farmer wrote the best-selling cookbook of that period. now christopher kimball has explored her work in his new book, "fannie's last supper."
8:44 am
using the ingredients and techniques of the victorian age to recreate the finest dushs of that time. he's here to share some of his favorite recipes from the book. chris, good to see you, man. >> pleasure to see you. >> talk a little bit about fannie farmer and what a giant figure looming figure she was in the cooking world of her time. >> she took over the boston cooking school in the early 1890s. she never went to college. that was the only thing she could do as a profession. and she took mary lincoln's boston cooking cool cookbook revised it updated it in 1896 said i'll put up $3,000 i'll fund the book, so she retained the rights. and it took off. >> it was best-seller year ap year. >> 400,000 copies by her death. >> so what gave you the idea to go back 100 years in time or more and say let's try and make a meal a great meal out of her cookbook? >> well the concept of the time was she traveled back in time.
8:45 am
you can read the newspapers like the boston globe cookbook. you just read a cookbook you don't get it. you've got to cook it. her house in boston we got a big old coal cook stove, 57 inch stove, we cooked everything on a coal cook stove. >> just as you would have cooked it back in the day. >> we made our own gel itten. >> that's why they call it mock turtle. >> right. so we did everything from scratch. made our own puff pastry. these go back to roman times. >> i've read the book and i think you may have struggled with the rizoles more than anything trying to find the exact way to do it. >> if you've actually done puff pastry from scratch in a hot kitchen with a big stove. it takes a long time. to get them to fry up right and serve them. we had 12 people come to dinner. we had to serve dozens and dozens and get them at the right time. it was really a challenge. here's the deal with fannie farmer. she was a business woman first. very smart. she realized that wealthy bostonians would pay a lot of money to get fancy recipes.
8:46 am
so she stepped up the food. it was like french cooking. but our culinary history is really english. they did soups, jellies. that's what she was good at. vegetable sauces. you know. >> what is this? >> this is a vinaigrette. one of the things we did was salmon. salmon at the time came from oregon. they had refrigerated rail cars. people liked salmon. also this was a time of convenience. people were eating canned foods, as well. they canned fruits canned vegetables. victorians spent seven hours a day cooking and cleaning. >> amazing to think about. >> they loved convenience. aunt jemima pancake mix came around jars and canned foods came around victorians go this is great. everything you see today started back in the 1890s. we converted from scratch to praep. >> regular old vinaigrette right? >> with some capers. we had salmon fillets here which we'll start. we did this on the cook stove. we had to grill. we cooked them inside.
8:47 am
>> right. >> i've been in your house. and i know that you've turned this book into a pbs special, which will air on a lot of pbs stations in november. and what was the impetus, you filled this stove with wood what was the temperature in the stove? >> we had an air conditioner, one air conditioner. it was 95 degrees by the air conditioners, about 120, to 130. you can see the faces were red. >> oh, my gosh. >> we overcooked. we got the stove up to 800 degrees at one time. >> can you imagine? >> we had a little problem. >> well we were trying to recreate this real-life episode of the times. >> meares what's interesting. back in that time a 12 course meal was not unusual. the middle class had money, the industrial revolution. women wanted to be creative in their homes. it wasn't just for the rich. so they actually sat down for three or four hours and ate 12 course meals. as you did. >> just every single night of my life. so the salmon get done. what do they end up like? >> they end up like this. we have the vinaigrette on top of it. again they're cooked very quickly. this is actually something, you
8:48 am
know about the 1900 fannie farmer, when he did fish he would do it like this with a vinaigrette. we borrowed a little bit from him. >> right, right. the other thing that's interesting about the book is it really took you a year to go through and test all of these recipes, and in order to get them edible for common -- >> well i've got to be honest. some 6 those recipes from the original 1890s, they need a little help. a lot of help. so we had to go in and make them 30 or 40 times. it was rough. >> okay. >> going to try this. >> this is orange. we did a lot of day-to-day recipes. they did a lot of these jellies. orange juice, sugar, a little hot water, gelatin, and told egg whites into the mixture and let it set up. >> there's a whole section about punch in all these different -- >> they love punch. you like punch, too, as i remember. harry loves punch, everybody. i just want you to know. >> hmm. >> and so they love jellies, they did a lot of very elaborate
8:49 am
jellies, different colors different flavors. so it was extremely elaborate. >> i'll tell you what the cookbook is a great read because it's almost like a mystery. it's about time travel and it's also phenomenal history. you are a scholar and then some. it's a great read and a great writer. >> can you say gentleman, too? >> we thought we'd leave that out for the time being. christopher kimball, as always, a pleasure to see you. for these recipes and more go to our website at earlyshow.cbsnews.com. we'll be right back. you're watching "the early show" on cbs.
