"early" february 4th, 2011. captioning funded by cbs a good friday morning to you. i'm erica hill to a live west coast edition of "the early show." >> good morning to you, erica. i'm chris wragge. we talk about the protests going in egypt the last few days. you're looking at close to 100,000 people and some reports have more than 100,000 people descending upon liberation square there. the reports the protests are somewhat orderly where the last few days it's been violate mob-like protesters. >> we want to begin in egypt. cbs news correspondents elizabeth palmer is in cairo with the latest and a front row seat to all of this. liz, good morning. >> reporter: you can see for
yourselves these enormous crowds in tahrir square. the biggest i've seen yet. we are reporting to you from inside because the army has said we're not allowed to film from any of the vantage points overlooking the square. however, i've just been down there in the crowd and it's very -- it's a very good scene. it's relaxed. ill would say even jubilant. once again core anti-mubarak demonstrators spent the night in tahrir square and little or no violence and set up orderly checkpoints behind a barrier of wire to filter people in one by one. egyptian state television has announced the defense minister himself visited troops and the crowds in the square and the army has said once again soldiers would not fire a single bullet. the anti-mubarak opposition billed this as the day of departure.
hoping mubarak would step down but no clear sign he is indicating to do that. live pictures of the square are no longer being broadcast to the arab world 24/7 but still massive coverage of this important story and with the internet back up social networking sites are humming. as the sometimes violent upheaval continues and with services like banks and schools completely shut down americans who live and work in cairo are either keeping a low profile or leaving. >> any u.s. citizens. >> reporter: the u.s. embassy have a charter of flights to evacuate tour and residents. >> prepared to get up 1,500 people today and adding planes on as-needed basis. >> reporter: the opposition hopes this day will bring a resolution to the crisis which will be hammered out now in political back rooms, not on the street. now, the crowds -- there is something going on down there. they are cheering like mad.
we don't know whether it's because they are altogether and they have managed to pull off a piece of demonstration or whether they have heard some news. the question though, if mubarak doesn't step down the day of departure, what happens next. erica? >> that is the big question. we know you will be watching it for us there. elizabeth palmer, thanks. this morning the obama administration is working with egypt's government on a series of options. one of them calls for mubarak to resign immediately and turn over the power to a transitional government. >> reporter: the obama administration is urging the egyptian military and government to find a way for president mubarak to step down immediately and then begin a peaceful transition. officials here say that there is no one u.s. plan but there is considerable pressure, both in private and in public, from secretary of state clinton.
>> i urge the government and a broad and credible representation of egypt's opposition, civil society, and political factions to begin immediately, serious negotiations on a peaceful and orderly transition. >> reporter: there are ongoing conversations between washington and egypt's military and its new vice president omar suleiman but not directly with president mubarak. the obama administration has moved in ten days from embracing mubarak as a longtime ally to deciding that it's now absolutely necessary for him to go. but they want the egyptians to be the one who figure out how to do it. bill plante, cbs news the white house. >> bill, thank you. now here is erica. we want to take a look now at what is next for egypt and, in turn, for the region. joining bus a look at the possible scenarios is bobby ghosh, deputy international
editor for "time" magazine and the story you're working on for the next issue of the magazine. good to have you with us as always. we have heard a little bit about the possible plans and the involvement of the united states. does this u.s. risk anything by at least appearing to be so involved in this move to force mubarak out? >> well, the obama administration has been behind the curve on egypt for about ten days now and it looks like they are trying to get ahead of it. you're right. it seems -- it won't go down well in the street if washington is seen to be pushing the levers here. probably a better idea >> which has been the focal point and things erupting in tunisia not long ago. a number of demonstrations planned throughout the region today. what are you looking at most closely? >> we are looking particularly at yemen. i was just there. it's a country in many ways similar to egypt and very very
poor, very very corrupt. you have essentially a dictator who has been there 32 years and the people who want to see him go. protests already leading up to this. today is a friday big protest. both pro and anti-government peaceful so far but things are combustible. >> a lot of people in the u.s. think of yemen and think al qaeda and the middle east and a hot bed of terrorists. as we look at egypt and what has to happen between now and september, if mubarak steps down, who is leading this government? somebody like mohamed elbaradei? >> he has a nobel prize and national credibility. he seems likely to be a transitional figure. he doesn't have a lot of political experience in egypt. also noore stood against mubarak five years ago and thrown in jail but he has a lot of credibility because he has been
in opposition for mubarak. or omar suleiman. again, a transitional figure possibly. >> what do you see happening in that transitional period? it seems unlikely mubarak can hold on until the elections in september. >> it's going to be messy. for 32 years this man has kept his opposition down. no logical leader and no natural figure. so there is going to be a lot of negotiations among the opposition groups. they are going to have to come up with a new constitution or reform the existing constitution. it's going to be quite complex. >> what does this do to the u.s. in terms of diplomacy in terms of the relations? is this a good or bad thing? >> i think very difficult because egypt is so central to the u.s. middle eastern policy. i think in the long term a good
thing. i think the united states is more comfortable when it deals with diagrammatic countries and leaders who have the credibility with their own people. >> we will continue to watch and we will be looking for that article coming up as well. bobby ghosh, thank you for coming in. are. jeff glor is standing by with a look at other headlines this morning. >> this morning, cbs news has confirmed that astronaut mark kelly will go into orbit in april as scheduled. kelly is married to congresswoman gabby giffords who was shot in the head last month in tucson arizona. he is due to command the final mission of the space shuttle "endeavour." kelly will hold a news conference this afternoon to officially announce that decision. a new senate report characterizes the ft. hood shooting as a tragedy of errors that could have and should have been prevented. report blames the fbi and the defense department. there was ample evidence according to the senate report that the gunman malik hassan was

overnight. we woke up this morning. most of the dallas area has 6 inches of snow on the ground now and it is still snowing. as you can imagine, that is causing havoc out on the roads. they are not equipped to deal with this kind of snowstorm here. they happen occasionally but they just only have a few trucks and a few sanders so they are out there doing what they can but strask massively backed up on the interstates and causing problems at the airport. things have slowed down to a crawl at dfw airport. love field we are told is closed right now. we don't know when they are going to open. but, obviously, the snow while they were expecting a little bit of snow they weren't expecting a lot. the fourth day schools have been closed here in much of texas and this event is happening across texas. there is freezing rain there is ice, there's sleet. it's just a mess here. speaking of texans jeff i can tell we've had about enough but i don't think we're out of the woods just yet! >> i'm sure the parents are
thrilled about school being canceled four days in a row. >> reporter: my neighbor called it teacher appreciation day. he never knew how much he loved sending his kids to school until he had them with him all day. >> don teague, thank you so much. you may want to shield your eyes, don. a picture from santa monica. take a look at this. it's supposed to be 69 degrees in santa monica, california today. this is son take monday -- this is santa monica. we were looking at miami before. balmy enniceand nice. we take a look at the national picture. in the wake of that monster storm, we have some showers rain showers in the southeast and a little bit of snow in portions of texas. look at the radar. you can see further north, not a whole lot but cold temperatures. of course, that snow that is expected to travel across the country later on today.

eagerly anticipated jobs report is out and it's a surprise. a small increase in jobs but big drop in the unemployment rate. rebecca jarvis is here with the latest. these job numbers come out and it's a surprise to say the least. what happened here? >> lately the predictions have been way off as far as what analysts expect and what they get. this month we learned in january jobs increased in the country by 36,000. the unemployment rate in the meantime, dipped all the way down to 9%. no one expected to see something like that. you look beyond the number and you see that maybe it's not as good as people thought. >> how does this happen? allow do you get so few jobs added this month but you see such a fall in the unemployment number like that? >> a couple of things. first off, weather. weather can be a factor here because people don't go to work and don't necessarily get counted in the employment numbers. another big factor and one the economists point to when they say this number is really more negative than it is positive is
the fact that people drop out of looking for work. when they stay out unemployed for months after months some people lose hope they lose faith and they stop their job search. as a result, they don't get counted in that unemployment number and, as a result it dips down. >> so what you're saying is with this unemployment number being so low to the laymen it might look great news, but don't get too worked on this yet? >> right. we need to see in motion going downward as opposed to fluctuating going down and up and down and up. >> how many jobs would the government like to see added on? >> you take a step back and look at the number of jobs lost. more than 8 million jobs lost as a result of the recession. ben bernanke chairman of the federal reserve, says we need to see 200,000 jobs created the next six months to significantly decrease the unemployment rate and keep it low. >> let me ask you your thoughts on this because we mention the defendant a few moments ago.
through court documents that were released yesterday, we come to find out jpmorgan chase with was aware of some of the fuzzy math with bernie madoff. at least 18 months before his ponzi scheme went bust. what does this say? >> if these allegations play out to be true and jm morgan says they are false they increase the distrust on wall street. >> rebecca jarvis thank you. danger and drama in oklahoma as suv lands in icy river. a story of the rescue crews who worked hard to save five others. check out the most anticipated commercials for the super bowl. a preview coming up here on "the early show" on cbs. ever wish vegetables didn't taste so vegetably?

proximity of the victims. >> chief reeves, given the extreme weather conditions did you kind of have that clock going on in the back of your mind, knowing that time was of the essence to get to these survivors survivors? >> yeah, without a doubt. any time we're dealing with that type of temperature and then the location of the patients time is always something that is in the back of your head. also knowing the trauma that they probably had suffered due to the fall. >> did you have a plan or did it take a few minutes to kind of survey the landscape and then decide what to do? how long did it take to figure out how you were going to get to these people? >> well, you know, first when we were the fire department took command on the scene, we were supplying mutual aid to them. so once we arrived on the scene, just a short -- few minutes later than they did, we got with them and deviced a plan and they stayed up on the interstate bridge and we sent our personnel

a whole. anti-government protesters have gathered for a mass rally demanding the immediate resignation of president hosni mubarak. it's scheduled to include a march on the presidential palace and cbs news correspondent elizabeth palmer is in cairo this morning. liz, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. it's a real shift of mood here this morning jeff. the army has thrown its support, it appears, behind this demonstration and the soldiers set up real proper barricades with wire. in order to allow people to come into the square peacefully, show their ids and then come in. they have promised there will be no violence. at least from the army. in the move that would have been unthinkable even a week ago, the defense minister himself, according to state television came down into the crowds. it looked me like there was about several tens of thousands of people in the square at the moment. the internet is back up. so all those things are peaceful.
now, some of the images of violence are circulating on-line. we thought we would show you this one bit of video. probably from earlier in the week. it appears to show a police van careening through a crowd of peaceful marchers. now, the police are gone gone. the army has made it clear it's very much in charge. they are so far anyway keeping very good order. there is no sign at all that this is going to be violent, although we hope it will be decisive. at least by the end of the day. jeff. >> liz palmer in cairo this morning. liz, thank you. the january jobs report is out this morning. the labor department says employers added 36,000 jobs but the jobless rates are up sharply at 9%. the lowest since april 2009. this afternoon astronaut mark kelly will confirm that he is returning to space in april. an official says kelly will lead the shuttle endevour's final

in t in this morning's hlt in this morning's health watch, what singles want. there are about 100 million single people in this country, and a new survey asks 5 2shgs00 of them what they're looking for when it comes to love, and the results are very surprising. early show contributor and psychologist dr. jennifer hartstein has, well the numbers for us this morning.
these are really i think going to surprise a lot of people. they really flipped things upside down. >> they absolutely did flip things upside down surprisingly. the male mind, what is the male thinking in the whole single world thing? >> what they found was that amongst the 21 to 24-year-old and 50 and older, there's a greater desire to marry. there is that age in the middle where women probably want to be married more especially because of their kids, but they have that, but men across the board want to have kids more than women do. >> that is a little surprising. what about -- let's turn it on the other side and talk about women. what do they want? i think most people think, well the women were the ones that really p the kids. >> and historically that's been true, but what they actually found was that women, surprisingly want more personal space, they want to have their own interests and hobbies and built-in girls night out as often as they can get them. >> why are the roles now reversed? if you took away the colors of those backgrounds, i think could you probably sit back and say, well, that sounds like the guy and that sounds like the gal. >> it is really turning
everything we've known on its ear, and i think a lot of it is that women are in a different position now than they were 30 40, 50 years ago. they really don't have to be married to be happy. they don't have to worry about a man to provide on for them. they can do a lot of that themselves. >> was this a shift shift over the past couple of days before wr things started to turn? was it five years ago, ten years ago? >> it looks leak it's been a gradual change but it's definitely been happening over time. stoo another thing that we often talk about and love at first sight, it sounds so great, the numbers there are a little bit surprising as well. >> they are. what they found was that 54% of men believe in love at first sight. they believe that it can happen. whereas, only 44% of women believe in love at first sight. >> why is that? because, again, you often hear about women talking about this more than men. >> right. i was discuss this actually with my husband about it, and we were really talking about, like what's the definition of love? is it really love is it not? we both came to the conclusion that maybe it's men are more impulsive on that first meeting, where women are more logical
about where it's going to go. >> hook-ups one night stands. has the playing field changed? has the landscape changed there, or can you have a successful relationship? >> they found that 35% of people have a one nightstand and actually turns into a long-term relationship. >> really? >> really. it is very different than what we used to think. >> does that surprise you? >> yes, that actually did surprise me although i do know some people where that has been true. >> let's talk about valentine's day. it's ten days away. there are, like we said hundreds of millions of single people out there so do you have any tips for them as valentine's day does fast approach and how they can meet that other person? >> i do. the first thing is you want to give second chances. one of the other thing that study said is three-quarters of the people didn't like the person the first time they met them and gave them a second chance. you want to pursue interests, do things you like, maybe you'll meet people at that cooking class, maybe you'll meet them at the sports bar. be open-minded and take care of yourself and be confident and you'll meet someone that's confident and recognizes your own confidence. >> be comfortable with yourself
and go to spots you maybe wouldn't normally go to. >> absolutely. it brings people to you, the more confident you are. i don't know. >> do they sound like great tepz? they sound like great tips. good to see you this morning. >> you too. up next marysol goes under the sea in the final chapter of our "i've always wanted to" series. this is "the early show" on cbs. cbs health watch sponsored by slim fast. slim fast, who has time to slim slowly? nth, and i figured i would take these...

that's the copy in there. that's right the ocean has always inspired me soothed me and actually intrigued me. so when i was told that i could pick anything to explore for our "i always wanted to" series i knew right away i wanted to swim with some sea creatures. and since the water temperature in new york is currently a balmy 34 degrees, i decided to go to the georgia aquarium and use that as my test lab. >> good call. nearly three quarters of the earth's surface is covered by water. yet we know very little about our oceans and many of their extraordinary inhabitants. some mimic things we see in the air, while others seem to come from another world. some are just giants. others not so much. i've always felt a certain pull towards understanding all things aquatic. and dreamed of swimming alongside the ocean's most majestic animals. where better to make the dream come true than the georgia aquarium? it's home to tens of thousands
of creatures. including the biggest fish in the sea, the whale shark. curator chris coco supervises animal care, including that of a certain two-ton lady i'd soon be getting close to. >> that is alice. >> hi alice. so cool. >> alice is great. you're going to enjoy working with her. >> i'm looking forward to it. does she eat a lot? >> about 20 pounds her day. >> what kind of chomping are we talking about? >> they have thousands of tiny little teeth in the front. >> we're not talking great white? >> no, no. no great white action. >> our first order of business. >> you've got some krill, some squid. >> prepare alice's lunch. >> what are we weighing up first? >> go ahead with the squid. >> at least it doesn't feel slimy. completely natural. krill eyeballs. alice, i'm making this with love for you.
and away. >> there you go. >> upstairs. we boarded a small boat on the surface of the 6 million gallon tank. >> oh, my god it's coming right at us. alice appeared right away and ready to eat. >> there you go. there you go. you're doing a great job. there you go. >> sorry, alice. balancing the boat and spoon feeding this larger than life creature is a lesson in choreography. >> here you go. >> oh, oh, oh. >> beautiful. she's done. >> can i -- >> the only way to get any closer would be to get in the tank. i'll be your dive master today. >> all right. >> which is exactly what i was about to do. >> you'll be fine.
the second my head finds the water, the noise of the outside world quiets. almost immediately, i am greeted by a whale shark and in this overwhelming moment, i feel a sense of calm. seeing so many amazing creatures up close and personal my respect and awe is only enhanced. my passion reinforced. and i am humbled by an experience that will be impossible to forget. i am lucky. one day i'm hoping to get a real job. because if i get paid to do something like that, i am a very lucky person. so, 22 feet long alice is. and she's still growing. >> wow.
>> being -- even if you're in an aquarium there's really just a sense of calm. you can't be claustrophobic because you can't run away from the water. you can't swim away from the water. i would do it again in a second. i would love to do it in a real ocean. >> it was so calming. >> it was. all along, i was asked are you nervous, are you nervous? and i wasn't. there wasn't a single moment when i was nervous because, you know, a whale shark is very docile and i wanted to bring you guys back a whale shark but we couldn't fit it on the set. >> you didn't feel like bait at any point? >> no, i did not. >> did it even notice you? because it seems that in addition to the whale shark everything else in the tank is just sort of oh, yeah it's another person. >> exactly. it's very pavlovian. when you go into the water those whale sharks they're like dogs. it's like oh, it's feeding time. so you all brought back something wonderful. i obviously could not bring you back a whale shark. however, whale sharks have been adopted in your names. >> oh. >> so erica hill you will help
support the research of whale sharks at the georgia aquarium. i adopted one for myself. so if you get a chance go down there, use my name and alice will try to wave to you. >> and it's great. i was in atlanta when they built the aquarium. it's an incredible facility. >> absolutely beautiful. so there you have it. the georgia aquarium is the largest aquarium outside of asia. and it's the only -- actually the only aquarium outside of asia to house a whale shark. they have four. they're studying them. there's so much they don't know about them. >> i want to go. >> go. >> it's a great -- >> it looks beautiful. if you are in the area we highly recommend popping in and spending some time with them. and it's just -- >> and go find your whale shark. >> we have mini sharks here? >> i have a feeling that -- >> the kids will love it. >> our boys are all watching on tv right now and thinking oh, are you bringing me home a new pet? >> from the georgia aquarium.

on you because it's not -- you're not so much part of an ensemble right now. it's a little bit the movie is more on your shoulders. >> i guess so. it doesn't feel like that though. it really doesn't. i just really felt i was partners with leyton and every day was its own experience, and we really didn't think about the pressure or what comes with what we're doing. it was just we were so excited to have the opportunity to have our first real you know, starring role until a feature film together because we were friends. >> was it a nice relief when you finally heard, okay that's a wrap? >> well, yeah. you know we also were able to just let off so much steam because we shot that fight scene. that was the last scene we shot. it was a huge tension releaser. >> i want to recommend to people, it is quite a -- it's a good fight scene. as far as fight scenes go, it's a good one. >> well, yeah. i mean we googled girl fights on youtube and, you know we made sure it looked real.

number danger. >> reporter: these kids have not yet studied grenada, and that's by design. soon they'll learn how history unfolded, but for now they're on their own. they assume their roles in realistic settings. journalists must decide what to report from the white house press room. generals head to the military command center aboard an aircraft carrier. some head to the oval office. >> you are all the president's trusted advisors. >> reporter: and kendall wilkerson becomes the most powerful 11-year-old on the planet. >> i am president reagan the commander in chief and the leader of the free world. >> reporter: like the former president, kendall must choose whether to invade grenada to rescue the medical students or negotiate with the rebel leaders. >> i'm kind of thinking a because if i discuss with them then we can make a deal. >> the point really isn't to get all of the answers correct. there are no right or wrong answers, but we do give them what happened true to history.
>> the president of the united states. >> reporter: then as reagan had done 28 years before kendall addresses the nation. >> the last few days have been difficult for our country. >> i concluded the united states had no choice but to act strongly and decisively. >> reporter: the u.s. won a military victory in grenada and the 800 medical students were saved. 18 service members were killed in action. >> it is a lot of weight. it is like having this whole building on top of you. >> reporter: after a day of experiencing the oval office, commanding shifts even taking the controls of air force one, learning firsthand how our government functions is a lesson that can't be beat. >> it's just something that you know is going to be a memory that they have for the rest of their life. >> more than 20,000 kids have taken part so far from fifth grade, like the group we just saw, all the way up through high school. erica. >> what a great way to live history.

i know that. >> i thought, oh heavens, no idea what they're doing to themselves with all that -- >> it's not even -- you can't even find pepperoni in italy. it's totally italian-american. i love it. we've got provalone and i'm using banana peppers. they're just pickled, and they add a really nice balance to all that spicy meat in there. >> i have never even heard of -- i tried one a few moments ago. it was really great. you can never have enough cheese. >> never have enough cheese. now we're going to roll it into a cylinder just like this. roll it up. doesn't that look good? >> one big fajita. >> let's seal the edges like that. i have one in the oven already

let it get nice and melty and put in the salsa. the cheese sauce by itself you can just use for anything but adding the salsa makes it nice and spicy. >> gives a nice consistency in there too. it's easier to mix. >> you stir that for me. >> yep. >> here are nachos. i'm using two different kinds of beans. we have black beans and refried beans. i put that in the oven for about ten minutes so they get nice and hot, and just until the cheese melts, and then just pour that on top. go for it chris. >> ready? >> doesn't that look delicious? >> good. >> can you top it with all your favorite nacho toppings like tomatoes. i like some sour cream. some fat on there. >> you cannot have enough cheese on there. jalapenos. >> many a late night in college i was eating nachos just like this. kind of reminds me of it. we hadn't been drinking at all. >> people are saying how can you eat these fattining foods and look how you do? >> xer sides. >> next up buffalo chicken
salad. i love buffalo sauce but making wings at home can get really messy. >> so? >> so just take a rotisserie chicken, shred it up. just one. toss it with buffalo sauce. put it on a big bowl of lettuce, and then we're going to add some scallions, bacon tomatoes. this looks so yummy. some celery. >> yep. >> you have to have blue cheese. >> lots of it too. >> that kind of balances the spiciness. i can hear you over there really getting into it. >> you put your hands right in there. you don't even have to use any utensils? >> i don't know. >> i wanted to see how far you would take this. >> some auf kaudo. that looks good. put that in there. you toss it and i'm going to put the dressing on it. we can enjoy this. it looks great. with a nice cold beer. it's a delicious menu where are.
