7:16 am
so we've had this unusually low volatility period. it's lulled us into thinking it's gone away. so, yes, get used to it. >> give us the framework for understanding the future volatility. is it because the economy is doing well? >> the reason they should think about it is the natural course of the market. and so up and down days are normal. we went through this period where literally every day the market was up. as that famous saying goes, trees do not grow to the sky. it does not work like that. the market gives, the market takes away. over the long term we see an upward march. >> how much are they impacting the market, do you think? >> they haven't. that is what has been so bizarre, i have to say. the market has just walked off the dysfunction in washington. it's walked off some of the dysfunction around the world. >> do you think we have to

it is wednesday, february 7th, 2018. welcome back to "cbs this morning." the vice president promises aggressive new sanctions on north korea. ahead, ian bremmer looks at the chances of the olympics. plus, a guide to avoid procrastination. we all need this. the two-minute rule that can help you do more things every single day. great. more things for us to do. first here's today's "eye opener" at 8:00. the u.s. says it will unveil its toughest sanction ever. this could dampen hopes that the two sides could meet at the
8:01 am
winter olympics. >> an exciting day for spectators that surpassed all expectations including elon musk. >> he's calling the accusations against him preposterous. if this plan falls through, there's no clear plan to keep the government open past midnight tomorrow. >> amtrak zbtss another train incident. two cars separated at high speed. >> we have this low volatility period. it's lulled us into thinking it's gone away, and now we're going to see more volatility, so, yes, get used to it. >> best buy and target are planning to stop selling cds in their stores to which i say best buy and target are still selling cds in their stores? >> it does make me nostalgic. i love cds, the thrill of digging through the crates, the excitement of going home to listen to it, the seven hours it
8:02 am
took to get it open. >> it is so true. even for a woman with fingernails. it was so hard to open up the wrapping around it. >> it had its own term "wrap rage." >> signs of aging times. welcome back to "cbs this morning." i'm norah o'donnell with john dickerson and gayle king. president is calls for a shutdown if lawmakers do not accept his immigration plan. >> we'll do a shutdown, and it's worth it for our country. i'd love to see a shutdown if we don't get this stuff taken care of. if we have to shut it down because the democrats don't want safety, then shut it down. we'll go with another shutdown. >> well, he made himself clear there. the president spoke during a white house round table on gang violence yesterday. he wants $25 billion for a border wall and new immigration limits. in exchange for a path to
8:03 am
citizenship for 1.8 million people brought to the u.s. as immigrants illegally. >> white house chief of staff john kelly said the other 1.1 million who didn't sign up for daca were, quote, lazy. he clarified that yesterday. >> some of them were perhaps a little bit concerned about signing up when many, many people in neighbored signed up three times, two or three times. i've got to say that some of 24e78 should have gotten off the couch and signed up, but that doesn't really matter now because president trump has given them the status. >> last year president trump ordered an end to the daca program but gave lawmakers until march 5th to find a compromise. in an effort to avoid a potential shutdown, the house approved another short-term measure last night to pay for six more weeks of funding. senators say they're closer to a budget deal. nancy cordes is on capitol hill. she's tracking those
8:04 am
negotiations. good morning. >> good morning. what was surprising about the president's shutdown comments came just as the senate leaders were telling us they were getting close to an agreement. in fact, ever since a bipartisan group helped to end the last shutdown a couple of weeks ago, compromise is suddenly back in vogue. >> going back in again. one more shot. >> reporter: the place to be on capitol hill these days is the house of moderate main republican susan collins. >> i think we've made some real progress. >> about two dozen senators, democrats, and republicans meet almost daily to try to hammer out a middle-of-the-road immigration plan. >> we're back in the ball game now. >> suddenly it's cool to be bipartisan. >> we're here for the same reason. we take the same oath. >> west virginia democrat joe manchin passed around a pledge tuesday unching senate colleagues not to run campaign ads against one another.
8:05 am
the only way was to compromise as a point of honor. >> that's still a national conversation whether the country wants that or not. >> oklahoma republican james lankford and delaware democrat chris coons lead a weekly prayer meeting in this room weekly. >> there's kind of a running joke that happens that it's much harder to stab someone in the back after you've prayed for them in the morning. >> they both say words matter. >> can we call that treason? why not. >> on monday mr. trump called democrats un-american for not applauding at the state of the union address. >> what do they say around here? >> they i don't take it as a joke. >> what's troubling is he actually thinks in his mind that we have an obligation to stand up and cheer when he speaks. that might be true for the leader of north korea.
8:06 am
it's never been true for the lead over the united states. >> those two senators will play a role in tomorrow morning's national prayer breakfast. what we're still waiting to see is if all this fellowship can lead a packet forwath forward o immigration. so far a lot of talk, a lot of good will, but so far, norah, no plan could pass the senate next week. >> fascinating. nancy, thank you so much. the u.s. will soon unveil what are called the toughest and most aggressive sanctions on north korea ever. mike pence made that announcement this morning in tokyo without details. he will lede the opening ceremonies in south korea. he said they'll continue their probe until they take concrete steps that are verifiable and complete denuclearization.
8:07 am
cbs news global affairs ian bremmer is president of the ur as euro asia group. let's talk about it what could that mean? >> well, first of all, the tougher sanctions he's promtsing, it's not like the united states is doing any business with north korea, so that means hitting the chinese, the banks working with the north koreans. we've talked about a much tougher trade stance. that's a big deal. but pence has not ruled out talking to the north koreans. now that he's played tough, the ability of the united states to also engage diplomatically and the way the south koreans already are, there's clearly an opening there. the north koreans are showing all of this diplomacy, sending officials as well as his sister. all of this is on the back of the pressure of the trump administration. there's an opportunity that's
8:08 am
been set up by trump. >> does it mean the trump's stand to the end of strategic implication is working? >> both of those are on the table right now and the question is do you like the uncertainty. >> so if this means more pressure on china, these sanctions that the vice president's talked about but hasn't detailed, does that mean china is not doing its job in pressuring north korea, bus there have been conflicting signals whether they're being helpful or not helpful. >> the chinese are doing more than they have under either obama or trump administrations. they are cracking down on smuggling across the border. they've limited joint ventures with north korea that was leading to money with north korea, but they're not prepared to cut thome off because they're concerned with what would happen if the north korean regime implo
8:09 am
implodes. now that is going to prevent trump from saying they're doing enough. he is pointing the finger. he's also pointing the finger at the chinese because we're expanding our trade deficit with them. we're not getting access to their economy. a lot of things the that are playing out, north korea is only one of those pieces. >> how much is theater? we've heard about the bloody % nose strike, the possible strike against north korea. how much of this is actually being thought of, these big sanctions and how much is a part of kind of threatening in order to pull back or as part of the negotiating? >> i think that as part of the pullout because he had private ly been pushing the white house saying this isn't going to work and mcmaster was like, that's it. you're done. that's not good because trump wants a viable military
8:10 am
operati operation. we've got the signal intelligence, satellite imagery. there's no one out there that believes that they have a beat on how one of the most brutal leaders would respond. >> i want to go back for a second. i heard you say it's his sister's first trip. what's the significance? i think most people don't've about know h had a sister and number two, he's like a lone wolf. what is her relationship? >> she's known. she's occupying the role her aunt used to, be now one knows what that means in terms of decision-making. i think what we can say with a fair amount of certainty is the fact that she's going implies there's a direct message from kim jong-un going to the south korean government and it really is an effort to say, never mind these americans. we can work together, which the south korean president is interested in. the whole idea of good cop/bad
8:11 am
cop would be useful if the south koreans and americans were working on this together. but they're not. the south koreans pushed back on the joint exercises with the americans to make sure everything was fine. secretary mattis wasn't aware of it. >> and they're marching together in the opening ceremony in south korea. that says something. >> yes. >> thank you very much. this red tesla roadster with star man has launched into outer space. >> millions of viewers online made it the second biggest live stream in youtube history. ceylon musk called the launch silly and fun but important. >> i think the imagery of it is something that's going to get people excited around the world. it's still tripping me out. it gives me a lot of faith for our next architecture. >> amazon's ceo jeff bezos who

8:20 am
out. >> reporter: complicated because food sachbty regulations require banquet food to be delivered immediately for safe consumpt n consumption, but mgm resorts has found a way to keep their food safe for much longer. as soon as banquet is finished, food that has been prepared but not served is transferred and loaded onto a truck from three square, a las vegas food bank. once it arrives there, it's flash frozen in a high-tech refridge iter called a blast chiller and moved to the freezer. the food can be saved for up to three months, sent when needed to places like the catholic charity dining room. >> this program is going to help reduce food insecurity in this city. >> reporter: they hope other hotels will follow their example. >> what's in it for mgm? ? >> this program is one we believe in. it's anable to tell our major
8:21 am
convention clients we are doing this. >> reporter: they're saying the program could help divert 1 million pounds of food by 2020 to feed the hungry. when life turned back for andy, he arrived at the dining room with $6. >> were kwloun gri then? >> oh, boy, was i. i hadn't eaten in to days. i hadn't been hungry in my life. i come in here, i got a hot meal, a bunk, i got a shower. excuse me. but like i say i got involved in the program and as they say, the rest is history. >> what isn't needed in a hotel banquet room can help change lives when it's served to someone who does need it. for "cbs this morning," john blackstone, las vegas. >> very nice. you see the difference it makes. you can see by the emotion on that man. it geesd that somebo it's good that somebody's eating the food.

8:26 am
philly.com. lets get a check of the forecast. good thing parade is tomorrow because today it is a mess out there. >> i can't imagine that weather didn't have some role in their decision to make this parade on thursday, but yeah you still do have, a mixed bag rolling through with the rain/ snow line right over i-95 basically so those temperatures are still very close or right around freezing , allowing for this mixing to take place, you still have winter weather advisories across all of southeastern pennsylvania into parts of the west central new jersey and then also new castle county. these will expire at different times, as the rain/snow line lifts north and there is a turn over from snow to rain. looking at your location, you do have just a location based forecast out of this and it depends where you are and what you see. in the city and i-95, rain snow mix initially starting off certainly with rain freezing on contact and just posted a video of what i saw on our own cbs-3 sky deck and twitter, and you really need
8:27 am
to just expect it is slick even though it looks like it is just ring. looking forward why tomorrow it is long gone i worry about icing refreezing in the wake of is what happening today for early tomorrow morning and for those coming in, to this city for the parade but at lee sun will shine, make sure you are bundling up equate to it how would you be if you are were out at times square at new years, and very cold and out for hours at a stretch. just come f shower upcoming weekend we have got a new system moving inuts is a heck of a lot more clear cut just rain out of this one temperatures too warm for meisha.g else. >> yes, nice to see 50's popping up again, we have to wait until weekend but thanks, katie. we are looking outside and it is affecting your commute this morning. wintry mix that katie's been talking about all morning long , and we will have a spin out on 309 north at bethlehem pike but right lane is block by penndot right now you can see squad car and also looks like someone outside their vehicle take it very, very, easy out there, especially when you don't know if you are

8:34 am
microtime. what's a way to start that? >> i like to talk about the two-minute rule. you want to downscale your habit until it only takes two minutes to do. so for example going for a run may be tying your running shoes or foeding laundry, fold socks. >> start it. don't feel like you have to finish. >> optimize for the result, but instead we should optimize for the starting line, not at the finish line. >> don't look at the big picture of success. you should concentrate on just do something. >> well, if you -- when you achieve a result, you only change your life for a moment. achieving your goal -- if you have a goal to clean your room, for example, then your room is cleerch now, but if you don't change the habits, you're going to have a messy room two weeks from now. >> why are habits important, james? >> habits give us the results they want. they can help us earn more money or lose weight or be productive, but the real reason habits

>> it was performing at open mike that helped launch chance's career. he remains an independent artist with no plans to sign a recording label. his mixed tape "coloring book" escaped boundaries. it topped billboard charts with streaming plays only. >> my thought procession was if i'm give the music away for ee there's a strong chance they'll take it, a slight chance they'll listen to it. if i sell it to them and they have a choice between my music and a happy meal, they're going to choose a happy meal. they're going to spend money on something they know they can consume. i needed consumers but i wanted people to notice there was something being created that no oneover than the face of it had control over it.

the title "coloring book" came to me because i felt like i was relearning a lot of things through her. >> you describe kanye and dave chappelle as mentors of yours. >> those are my two guys. those are the two guys i call first. kanye has all the confidence i always wanted to have. he always knew who he was and what he wanted to do. and dave is just all the things that my parents instilled in me is what he exemplifies at all times. he is integrity personified. he is, i don't care how much money you have, you can't have me, personified. >> i want to talk about your mom for a second. is there something that she says to you that makes you the person that you are today? >> i remember my mom used to -- she still asks me all the time if i'm a good person. >> did you know the answer?
