7:14 am
legalization. i am a strong believer that we have to think more about drugs as a public health problem. >> reporter: and when he was asked about the toughest thing about being president, mr. obama gave the same answer that most previous presidents have given and that is that he lives in a bubble. he's not free to take a walk or leave the house. chris? >> one of the downsides of the office. cbs's bill plante at the white house for us thank you. we want to turn our attention now to the economy. the dow jones industrials average is up around 12,000 for the first time in three years. jobless claims however jumped unexpectedly last week. so when you look at these two sides does it mean the economy is getting any better for the average american? to help give us the bullet points here is cbs news business and economics correspondent rebecca jarvis. we spoke yesterday about the dow coming up about 12,000 a little bit and you told us we should
7:15 am
expect it to come back down a little bit. >> here is the thing. the jobs numbers as you mentioned are not great. and they continue to be not great. there is that culprit as well as housing not being in a great place but having some forward momentum. the issue right now on wall street is how far we have come in a very short period of time. if you look at where the dow was just two months ago, it was actually a thousand points lower than where it is right now. that thousand-point jump typically, speaking is a thing you'll see and then you'll see a pullback in the market. traders will tell you, listen i've seen stocks go a long way. i'm going to take what is known as some profits which means i'm going to sell some stocks and i'm going to get back in the market once things come down a little bit. so for the average investor what that basically means we could see a bit of a pull-back here in the near term. it's one of the reasons why we may not have seen a big surpass that 12,000. >> ts not a bad sign if you're looking at this or if you're watching for your 401(k). it means traders are being a little bit more cautious which, at the end of the day, is good for all of us right?
7:16 am
>> well, that's what you would like to believe. >> right! >> that it is good for all of us. i think what it ultimately means you're 401(k) it could go down in the near term but people need to be -- the average investor should be thinking about investing for the long term not i'm getting in and make thousands of dollars tomorrow. has is what traders try and do but the average person has to think about it over the long haul. >> for the next few decades. it's also corporate earnings season. the report cards as they call them. there's some interesting news coming out from some of america's major companies. >> there are. it's interesting because it's what it means for us as consumers in the future. proctor proctor&gamble say commodity prize are rising. the maker of tide may have to increase its prices to pass the costs along to consumers and make money for itself. netflicks is a great example of a company has 20 million scribers now and showing the american consumer is willing to spend money on decisionary
7:17 am
things like movies because they are looking for a little bit of that. they are willing to spend a little bit of money, but on the flip side of that microsoft sees softness for the market for personal computerses. amazon the world's largest retailer online is showing thot all retailers are created equal. they didn't do as well with their online sales this holiday season as many were expecting. >> we did see ebooks are outselling paper back books and perhaps spending more -- >> it's just amazing to think about a sign of the time that ebooks on amazon can outsell paperbacks. 105 ebooks to every 100 paperbacks sell online. still head this morning on "the early show," charlie sheen is back in the hospital. this time people say it's only a hernia. we will have the latest on his

s in this morning's "healthwatch" can your term that the make you fat? a new study says yes, it can. dr. jennifer ashton is here with that story. good morning. >> good morning. the theory when it's cold we tend to stay inside and crank unthe thermostat and make it warmer and we exercise less. we eat more. in fact, this british study suggests that that is true. we do ten to stay inside and our metabolism goes down. we don't burn as many calories and the number on the scale goes up. >> the theory it's so comfortable in this nice warm environment i don't want to do anything else but eat? >> couple of theories. yes, you're sitting on a sofa and not as active if it's not as cold outside and you can get out and move more. >> the study looks at something called brown fat which is a fat that is not necessarily that bad? >> it's a hot topic, pardon the pun.
7:39 am
we are born with brown fat and because babies can't shiver so it burns a lot of calories and keeps us warm. when you're not exposed to cold if you don't use it the brown fat, you will lose it. you will make less brown fat, burn fewer cal isories at rest. >> if i'm sitting at home and want to lose weight do i freeze myself out of my apartment? >> i probably won't be able to stand it. they have done research where dressed people in light clothing in 63 to 66 degrees fahrenheit temperature and found that over time, they burned about 100 to 200 extra calories a day. might not sound like much but over a couple of weeks that adds up to 3,500 calories which can actual a pound. if you can handle mild cold temperatures your body can generate more heat. basic metabolism and burn more calories. >> a little shivering is not bad if you turn blue.
7:40 am
other tips you have? >> the temperature, it is an exciting area of research but not the whole picture. number one, obviously, you want to stay active. even though it's cold outside, when it's safe, as long as it's not too icy, move, go for a walk and even do some jogging. during the winter, you're not exposed to sun. your mood can suffer. that can cause you to turn on to more comfort foods and more impulsive eating and try to avoid that. the other interesting thing, chris, which is really funny is that people who tend to wear baggy or loose clothing during the winter just because they don't feel great, it's cold they tend to eat more. then when it gets to spring summer, you need to put on the bathing suits or more body revealing clothing you have a lot of extra pounds you have to deal with. >> don't warm up with too much food and watch out with the big baggy clothing because you're cheating yourself and the whole active thing. i think that is where i find a lot of people i know they don't want to work out because it's so many layers to get there and it becomes -- >> that's right. the temperature is an area of

7:45 am
the end of january. >> you're probably already seeing some. i've actually received a couple of those in the mail already from my bank account, credit card companies, and i'm getting the stuff for tax time. people want to make sure they're putting it together. but they do have three extra days to file. that's not an excuse to basically backtrack, but april 18th is the tax filing day this year, and that's because april 15th is emancipation day, it's a federal holiday, and so and then comes the weekend, so they have three extra days. >> for folks in massachusetts, it's also patriots day. >> there you go. >> so let's take a look then, as we talk about some of these changes that came in at the end of the year. what are some of the biggest changes to filing and things we need to know about? >> well for nonitemizers who took the standard deductions there's three of them in 2010 that you're not going to be able to take anymore, this year. one of them is real estate. real estate tax deductions, that standardized deduction for
7:46 am
non-itemizers is gone. new car deduction, that is also gone. as are disaster loss deductions. so these are the things that, if you filed as a non-itemizer in 2009, you would have just gotten a standard deduction and you would have received some back. you're not going to get that this year. >> another important thing to know for anybody who took advantage of the home buyer tax credit in 2010 this is going to dictate how you have to file your taxes. >> yeah. it's a really important point, erica. because if you took the tax credit which is $8,000 up to $8,000 for new buyers $6,500 for people who have already purchased homes who purchased a new home in 2010 they have to file by snail mail. they cannot e-file. so make sure if you want that deduction, that you be pretty significant, make sure that you do it by snail mail. >> there you go. and do it early so you're not waiting in line with all those people at midnight. >> exactly. april 18th. we'll be there to cover you. >> for a lot of people the next big thing to worry about is not just what's changed but how am i going to do my taxes.
7:47 am
you do them yourself or do you get some help? >> well, this year has been a year of many changes for lots of people. i mean the standard changes are, if your employment status changed. if your child status changed and you're claiming more dependents. if your marital status changed. these are all reasons why taxes can get more complicated. we're going to be here on "the early show" holding your hand. you can do this on your own. i file my taxes on my own every year. so we'll hold your hand. you can do it on your own. but if you feel overwhelmed it's also good to turn to somebody you can trust, an accountant or a website. there's a number of them out there you can use. >> and you also say it's important to look on the irs' own website. >> the irs will allow you to e-file if you want to e-file directly through them. about 95 million people last year filed their taxes online. that's a pretty seamless way to do it. assuming you're not going for that tax credit for the home buyer. >> there you go. we'll look at alled things as you said, you are going to be here throughout the tax season. >> we're going to hold your hand. >> helping all of us get this done. we'll look forward to that. i'll be calling you, as well. >> absolutely. >> just ahead, what makes for an

no one likes an awkward silence. no one. but now, get this there's a psychologist who tells us why these moments when that conversation comes to a halt are so uncomfortable. and here's what's fascinating to me, that someone actually studied this, and then came up with these findings. they're groundbreaking. >> awkward pauses. >> awkward pauses feel awkward because we need to feel like we're part of something. we have social needs. that a flowing conversation will bring to us. the need to belong. for self-esteem, for self-validation. i never would have guessed that's what made it awkward is that you wanted to belong.
7:52 am
>> not at all. what a genius. disruptions to the natural flow of conversation trigger a primal fear of rejection causing people to feel emotions like distress anger, hurt and fear and they say that happens within four seconds. >> the magic time is four seconds. if a pause is four seconds or longer, that's when it becomes really awkward. >> have you guys ever noticed someone you're interviewing, when you stop sometimes, you ask someone a question and then you just kind of wait for their answer. >> they talk more. >> because they want to fill the void. >> that's right. >> you know what i would give for a pause? >> in life or in -- >> that's your cue to -- >> oh, stop. extremely awkward. >> right. >> it's funny, though i was at an event last night, gentleman comes over and starts talking to myself and two other people that i was with and literally was a conversation stopper and i just had an uncomfortable moment of looking to the gentleman i was with and going, you know move the shoulders, please talk. it's a little unnerving.
