5:00 am
g@ i'm vinita nair. >> and i'm anthony mason. here are a few of the stories we'll be looking at on "cbs this morning saturday." another big travel weekend and another storm brewing. how an area already dealing with ice and power problems is about to get hit again. in sight but out of reach. a research ship trapped in the antarctic ice was close to being rescued. we'll talk with someone on board and talk about what went wrong. a & e reinstates the popular "duck dynasty." and there's a revolution
5:01 am
brewing inside this machine. see how a robot can make a better cup of coffee than a barista, all that and much more on "cbs this morning saturday," december 28th, 2013. captioning funded by cbs and welcome to the weekend. we also have some great guests for you here in studio 57 this morning. some consider him the greatest chef, daniel. >> and he's also in the food business. you probably won't recognize this machblt ed curry broke the record for creating the hottest pepper known to man. anthony's going to sample it. >> so are you. but a storm is brugge and could put a chill on new year's celebration. >> this latest winter wallop comes just one week after major ice storm struck from the midwest all the way to new england. in vermont crews are working to
5:02 am
restore electricity after ice packed power lines came down. about 100,000 customers are still struggling with no power. most of them are in michigan and maine. here's meteorologist danielle niles of our boston station wbz-tv. snow showers in the northern plains but our areas of rain are coming out of the southeast, heavy at times. spreads to the carolinas by the time by the time we get to overnight. heavy rain from jacksonville back up to d.c. the rain will fall heavy at times in southern new england. snow falls heavily in northern new england tomorrow evening and night before the whole storm pulls way from the northeast on monday. so how much rain are we talking? a widespread 1 to 2 inches up and down the eastern seaboard. heaviest amounts through georgia down to alabama where two more inches could be possible. snowfall is a different story. it's definitely a coating to
5:03 am
an-inch. minneapolis to chicago, a little more in the upper great lakes. it's 6 to 12 in parts of central and eastern canada, stretching back into northern new england where, of course they were hit very hard with the ice storm last weekend and there may be 12 or more inches that falls away from the coastline in maine where they're still dealing with several thousand outages. after that the story is the art tick air. it's going to return and dive in here as we head into new year's eve and new year's day. that means dangerous cold as we head into the ball drop. midnight temperatures teens in boston new york city dangerously cold below zero in minneapolis back up to bismarck. anthony and vinita back over to you. >> danielle miles of wbz-tv in boston. thanks. the ship is still stuck in ice. the ship is about 1,700 miles south of tasmania. it's been trapped in the ice
5:04 am
since christmas eve. bill whitaker explains what went wrong with the first rescue effort and what's happening now. >> reporter: this is working. you have to be flexible. >> reporter: lead scientist chris turney is putting a best face on a bad situation. stuck in ice on christmas eve and their first rescue attempt failed. the snow dragon from china was forced back by weather. people were pointing to the ship and everyone had smiles on their faces. it must be a letdown of sorts. >> that's right. absolutely. it's still there. it's staying there in case of any problems. >> reporter: an australian breaker is steaming to the rescue. the problem is the aunt art tick weather. fierce winds have blown a shelf of ice around the ship. there's now 13 miles. >> that's why we've got to this phenomenal not just expansion of
5:05 am
sea ice but a far greater thickness than anticipate. >> reporter: more than 9 feet thick. thicker than an ice breaker. >> individually that's correct. working together they can break it away. >> reporter: so in the best case scenario, when do you see yourself breaking out of the ice? >> if we're fortunate, in the next three or four days that would be absolutely fantastic but that's an optimistic view. who knows after, that it's still changeable. >> reporter: for today researchers are hoping for change in the weather and a change in their luck. for "cbs this morning saturday," bill whitaker los angeles. members of the u.s. military are free this morning after they were detained briefly in libya following an altercation at a checkpoint. the state department says the incident happened 40 miles west of tripoli on friday. no one was injured. the four were believed to be special forces.
5:06 am
now to the debate over the national security agent size collections of millions of americans' phone records. on friday a federal judge here in new york said the massive collection of data is legal but the matter may not end there. chip reid is with the president in hawaii. chip good morning. >> reporter: well, good morning, anthony. we now have two decisions from two different federal judges and they are directly contradictory. both decisions are being appeal and it's looking increasingly likely that this issue could wind up before the united states stream court. in a 54-page ruling federal - judge pauley says it does not violate a constitutional ban on reasonable searches and seizures. there is no evidence the judge wrote, that the government has used any data for any purpose other than to obstruct terrorist attack attacks. he cites terrorist plots that
5:07 am
were obstructed. he added, as the september 11th attacks demonstrate, the cost of missing such a thread can be horrific. the opinion acknowledges former nsa contractor edward snowden's unauthorized disclosure of the data collection and adds that despite the public debate and litigation, such a program if unchecked imperils the civil liberties of every citizen. but the judge noted in this case it is not uncollected. it's overseen by the department of justice, the intelligence community, special court and congress. the decision made friday dismisses the law brought by the american civil liberties union and judge leon ruled against the government earlier this month calling the government surveillance program almost orwellian and what once would have been considering the stuff of science fiction. it makes it more likely that the
5:08 am
supreme court will eventually decide this issue. the white house had no comment on the rule bug earlier this month the presidential panel recommended changes to the program and, anthony and vinita a senior white house official here in hawaii told me when the president returns to washington in january, he'll propose a specific set of reforms. >> chip reid traveling with president obama in hawaii. thanks, chip. and tomorrow morning on "face the nation," bop schieffer talks with michael hayden. you can see "face the nation" right here on cbs. today alone 1rks.3 million americans out of work for more than 26 weeks lost their extended benefits because there's no more money to pay for them. joining us now is peter schrader writing for "the hill." we said it's for people without
5:09 am
work for more than 26 weeks. but is there anyone else? >> there are others who have been looking for work even longer. they used to be able to go up to 73 weeks. now anybody in that window is going to be looking at a loss of benefits. you're going to see more and more people maxing out the 26-week window and they're going to lose benefits they would have had under this program. >> we know the recession has greatly inflated the long-term unemployed. the white house has said it will impact 9.4 million. why the change now? what happened in congress? >> the change now is congress didn't extend the program. it was due to expire today and it didn't get around to extending it. there was a budget passed. it didn't include this despite the push for some democrats on the hill who wanted to see it included. they're saying they want to revisit it in the new year early on. >> so there are interesting arguments to me on both sides of the aisle for why they want it
5:10 am
extended. what are they saying? >> democrats say there's an issue with the long-term unemployment. we still need to have the safety net with them. that's because there's a significantly larger amount of unemployed. the republicans point to the economy and say, look this was an emergency program. the economy is getting better. when do we have the conversation about no longer continuing the program? giving these benefits out to millions of americans cost money. where are we going to find the spending cuts elsewhere. >> so if this gets put back on the table in the new year by the democrats, what are the chances it could pass. >> the question is what's going to happen. harry readid said it's going to come back. the white house has been aggressive saying we want to see it extended. it's very important. the question is what are republicans going to be looking for if they want exceptions.
5:11 am
there are very few republicans who say they want it extend. we're looking at proposals but we're seeing how it will cover the costs, how to find jobs as opposed to receiving unemployment benefits so trying to find the compliments become as central question. >> why do we get the sense that this issue has float under the radar. while we've been reporting on it a while, people haven't been talking about it. >> when you talk about 1.3 million losing their benefits that's an eye-popping number but it's been under the drawer for washington. they had to deal with the government shutdown a come of months ago fight over the debt limits and push toward the budget. they took up time took up energy. the white house put out a report at the beginning of the month talking about how important it would be to get this extended. it didn't quite rise to getting extended including the last chance at the end of the year to get it done so just kind of
5:12 am
slipped through the cracks. >> peter schrader thank you for joining us this morning. they got the p.i.n. numbers. that's what target says about the hackers. target says the numbers are encrypted so the number is small. but the haerks did get names, debit and credit card codes and all the information em wedbedded on the strips. ups and fedex are playing catchup. ups said it will issue refunds to customers who paid for holiday delivery but did not receive their packages in time. the surge created the backlog. the trouble comes as the next part of the shipment season begins after-christmas exchanges and, of course all the returns. >> the investigation into the massacre of the sandy hook elementary school massacre is finally over. state police released the final
5:13 am
report along with hundreds of photos. the photos describe in graphic detail what happen ded. 20 first graders and 6 adults died and then adam lanza killed himself. the spacewalk began by place high-resolution cameras outside the station. the goal was to beam it back to earth. when nothing transmitted the astronauts were told to take down the cameras and bring them back for inspection. it's been an interesting week in russia with the government releasing several high-profile prisoners ranging from greenpeace activists to punk band members. holly williams joins us now with more on what some think is a public relations campaign. good morning. >> good morning, vinita and anthony. they're looking at this as a
5:14 am
white wash ahead of the sochi winter olympics. but if that's true it doesn't seem to be working. members of the band pussy riot were arrested for staging this protest in a moscow cathedral two years ago. two members of the band were still in prison before the amnesty. now they've been freed a year before they were due to be release, but they're not grateful to president putin. yesterday they said they want him removed from power and were only released because of political pressure outside russia ahead of the sochi olympics. several world leaders have announced they won't be attending the games. that's being seen as a protest against russia's new law banning what it calls homosexual propaganda as well as a crackdown on political demonstrations. this drilling land 26 foreign greenpeace activists in court
5:15 am
where they were facing lengthy prison terms. instead they've been freed under the amnesty, and five british member of the group arrived home last night to be reunited with their families. but they're not grateful either and hope the olympics will focus the world's attention on russia's political system. >> it's a big issue, a big human rights issue and i hope that sochi coming out will allow the world's media to shine the light and we'll keep talking about these things. >> reporter: one man who will keep talking is mikhail khordokovsky a former oil tycoon who was convicted of oil and tax evasion after he financed some of putin's political opponents. after ten years behind bars he was given a presidential pardon and is now in germany. he said he won't get directly involved in politics again but will fight for the release of other prisoners. this amnesty was approved
5:16 am
unanimously by the russian parliament. it's thought that more than 20,000 prisoners, many of them convicted of political crimes lrks be released. vinita and anthony. >> holly williams in london thank you. "duck dynasty's" star fill robertson and a & e have made up. he was suspended after making a comment about homosexuals and blacks. they made a statement why they were bringing back their number one program. it said "duck dynasty" is not a show about one man's views. it resonates with many because it talks about family. they come together to reflektd and pray for tolerance and forgiveness. g.l.a.g. said if challenges with phil is not part of next steps
5:17 am
-- "the times in india" says a train caught on fire. it started and quickly spread. many passengers were asleep at the time. others jumping to safety. the "los angeles times" says many refbler errevelers want to make sure there are new additions. they'll include checks for marijuana, cocaine and, other drugs. >> the "washington post" say as white-tailed deer was no match for two cheetahs at the national zoo in washington. it's unclear why the deer jump into the cheetahs' enclosure. the cheetahs acted as they normally would. "the new york times" says the state could drop to fourth place behind florida when they release their latest population
5:18 am
numbers next week. california and text are one and two respectfully. and "the detroit news" says the detroit lions are taking a chance on speed. they assign eded him for one year to see if the fastest rugby player can play football. he said he was doubted his whole life. he hopes he can prove him well. tomorrow there are two do-or-die games. some have some playoff implications. here to break it all down, kevin clark, reporter for "the wall street journal." good morning, kevin. >> good morning, anthony. >> how is it? >> i spoke with one and he said they feel like they're sitting around studying for the s.a.t. they don't know if they could
5:19 am
get in at 9-8 or 9-7 oshr 8- 8. >> of the six spots five are locked up.- how many have a chance for the wild card? >> four. there could be a front way tie, 8-8. anything could happen. you're going to need nine tv screens to breakthrough all down. borrow a tv from your neighbor. there's going to be so much going on you really have to have a guide in front of you to figure it all out. >> that's an amazing graphic there. i love it. the nfc has three spots. you like the green bay packer over the chicago bears. >> aaron rodgers for green bay is coming back to health. jay cutler is back to help for the bears. that may be bad news for the bears. jay cutler is 1-8 all time for the bears. really i think it's gnaw team in green bay with aaron rodgers at
5:20 am
the helm and think they're getting in the may-offs at the right time. you saw the ravens getting hot at the right time. >> you mentioned it so we have to talk about dallas. so many are looking at kitna and saying can he do it for them? >> kitna was teaching high school in taco na washington and now he's going to be a backup. kitna will be an insurance policy. orton has never started for the dallas cowboys. and he's 34-24. that needs tony romo number. he would have a good chance of winning the game. it all come downs to him usually in the fourth quarter. he doesn't have that opportunity now. he's out. the philadelphia eagles are going to run rough shot. the only way they can do it the cowboys, if demarco murray runs 200 yards. the eagles have a good rushing defense. there's no way without romo
5:21 am
unfortunately that this will be a game sunday night. the arizona cardinals and new orleans saints. who stays, who goes home? >> they always win at home. cardinals will finish with a really great record but there are too many great teams. the saints as a six seed it's really going to be a dine moot couple of weeks there. >> when is the last time we had playoffs this exciting? >> i was talking with people inside the league who don't remember. it's like march madness where you watch every game. so much has to do with the other game. people don't know what to watch really. and so like we said you know get nine tv screens and figure it out from there. >> my husband's going to make me watch every one of those games, i can already feel. it the nfl today will have coverage starting at noon eastern today right here.
5:22 am
it is 7:21 and now here's a look at the weather for your weekend. coming up from health care to ted cruz, a look ahead at the big economic and political stories of next year. and later a trend is brewing. >> i'm lee woodruff. baristas beware. this robotic kiosk claims to brew the perfect cup of cove. this story coming up on "cbs this morning saturday."

'sup girl. mom never questioned bobby again. two can play at this game. [ female announcer ] swap one snack a week for a yoplait. and everybody wins. yoplait. it is so good.
5:25 am
something from a sci-fi flick. it was sent out it's twice the size he thought it was. >> we'll be right back. this is "cbs this morning saturday."
5:26 am
5:27 am
i didn't know for euros you and warren beatty were brother and sister. >> yeah. we were very different. >> i know i know. you said thank god he was a boy. you didn't have to compete with a girl. >> i looked at a lot of other women who had sisters and went through that. with him i felt more of a protection because he is -- >> he's your younger brother. >> yeah. >> does he ever call you up and say, why did you say that or why did you do that? >> yeah he does. and i do the same with him. >> we have watched shirley maclaine on the big screen for close to 60 years now. she's won many awards and been paired with silver screen heavyweights including jack nicholson. >> do you think you can possibly
5:28 am
put the top up? >> the top's at home in the garage. >> frank sinatra. >> marry me now, today. >> i love that you said you were the mascot for the rat pack and everybody just assumed that maybe you were involved with somebody in the rat pack but that's absolutely not true. >> absolutely not true. wasn't even interested. had a bit of a crush on dean. frank was not my type. too little too skinny, too short. i like mysterious, you know complicated very macho mitchum type. and i had a relationship with him. >> you had a long relationship with him. >> i'm thinking it's fun to be the mascot for lack of a better word for the mascot. >> absolute. it was wonderful. that time will never come again. everybody cares too much about having to present themselves.
5:29 am
5:30 am
ball in new york that will welcome in the new year. all crystals shining greatly. >> the preparations for dropping the ball will be given a run threw. > and on tuesday we ring in the new year. welcome to "cbs this morning saturday." i'm anthony mason. >> and i'm vinita nair. the top story of this hour is future. we know the headlines for this year but what will they be in the new year? >> john buss ise looks at the new year. good morning. >> good morning. >> the economy continues to be a big story and will be for next year, you think? >> the good news is there is. you're seeing economic growth in
5:31 am
the country. revisions are being sort of raised at this point. i think we probably all know people are looking for work and we know companies that are still streaming, down-sizing, moving divisions around and cutting costs. on the whole they're cutting consumer spending. >> this is something economists have been predicting for years. they've been saying for the last couple of years, this is the year we're going break out. do you think you might? >> i think it's happening. it's been happening now for a couple of years. you're seeing economic growth continuing. you're seeing employment getting stronger. companies are hiring again. all of that's really positive. but there's this feeling of great caution about the process as well. the u.s. has been through so many knocks and there's so many questions still overseas about how that's going to affect economic growth in the united states. the companies are really very very careful. >> you mentioned oversea. you're talking china, japan, and europe. you are talking they're
5:32 am
struggling. could bit to our benefit or detriment? >> probably u.s. growth 2% 3% it's going to be a huge positive for economies overseas. all these other areas of the world are in and of themselves engines of growth, china, japan, europe. all of them are going through their own restructuring at this point. they are going to be looking to the united states to kind of create a tailwind for them to draft behind and that's probably what's going to be happening. >> let's look at politics now because we're coming into a year for midterm elections. what kind of impact do you think that's going to have on a washington that's already dysfunctional? >> we're already looking forward to 2014. you are witnessing in washington a slow but sure improvement in the gridlock and we have a budget deal. that hasn't happened in a lot of years. that's a big positive for washington. at the same time the big issues, how to deal with the
5:33 am
deficit, how to deal with the debt have not been resolved yet. the republicans are looking at what happened during the government shutdown. they don't want that to happen again. they know that they took a huge reputational hit for that. so 2014 you're probably going to see more of boehner in the house, particularly trying to consolidate power for republicans and to isolate those who are on the conservative french. >> it's also interesting to see what happened with the tea party. we want to move on to big international stories in 2014. china is going to be big. china versus the u.s., china versus asia. where does china stand right now? >> china is in the midst of restructuring its own economy. it's going to benefit the u.s. and more than foreign companies. it's going to be pushed aside. the biggest thing for asia how is japan and asia how is it going to get along.
5:34 am
is the friction developing regionally because of territorial disputes going spin out of control? i think that's a huge question mark. there's a lot of nationalism in both countries, a lot of pride. that can be a real positive for growth, and a real negative. >> thank you for joining us this morning. >> pleasure. now here's a look at the weather for your weekend. up next medical news in our morning rounds from concussions to obesity. a look back at some of this year's top medical stories. >> including surprising effect of when superstars open up about their health. our doctors are in the house. this is "cbs this morning saturday." >> announcer: this portion sponsored by brookside

5:38 am
it's time now for "morning rounds," and joining us is cbs medical correspondent dr. jon lapook and dr. holly phillips. first up earlier this month the food and drug administration announced what will be a major change in the neigh's food supply. farmers of beef, pork, and poultry will have to reduce the use of antibiotics in the animals they raise. jon, why did the fda take this step? >> this is a huge problem in america. there are more than 2 million with infections 20,000 deaths. it's a big deal. just in the last month i've had two patients with life-threatening super bugs. >> what are the rules. >> they're saying you can't give antibiotis just to make them fat. they have to be given to treat
5:39 am
illness and given by a veterinarian. >> how is the industry reacting to it. >> they say they're on board. there's a lot of skepticism. they're saying let's see if they're really on board. it's voluntary. in three years they're going to take a look at it and take steps if the industry is not falling in line. >> such a big change. the u.s. obesity epidemic continued this year. more than 1/3 of american adults and 17% of schirn are obese. they made a controversial decision and officially declared obesity a disease. so holly, why do you think the ama really took this step? it seems really far. >> really obesity has become an insurmountable burden not only on our society but also on our health care system because in addition to causing diseases like heart disease, diabetes, cancer, stroke obesity in and of itself is now the fifth leading cause of death worldwide and it accounts for 20% of our
5:40 am
medical spending. so i think by pushing the definition we're also hoping to push people being aggressive about treating it and preventing it. >> what actually changes, holly, if you classify obesity as a disease? >> the hope is it will cause insurance carriers to cover obesity, whether it's treatments, surgery, or whether it's even nutritional coverage. really we're trying to get the insurance carriers to recognize it's a disease like anything else and that it needs treatment. >> all right. angelina jolie and tom hanchs both surprised people this year about major announcements about their health. angelina jolie talked about breast reduction to reduce her chances of breast cancer and tom hanks announce edd his. >> i went to the doctor and he said, you know those high blood sugar numbers you've been dealing with since you were 36
5:41 am
well you graduated. you've got type 2 diabetes young man. >> jon, what actually happens when celebrities reveal health information like this. >> people care about celebrities. there were blips in the google after stuff like this. there's good and there's bad. just because the celebrity comes out and says to do something, it doesn't mean anything -- it's not often necessarily the best advice. in the case of angelina jolie, there was a lot of interest about doing mastectomies. maybe people are being too aggressive and they're doing them even though they don't need to and it hasn't shown it prolongs life. >> obviously the benefit is that you're raising awareness, but does it also scare some people? >> you know vinita, i think it can be a mix of both. after angelina came out and talked about her double
5:42 am
mastectomy, i had patients who said what was my breast cancer risk? do i need to have a double mastectomy. i was happy we were able to sit at the table. on the other hand you have to take what the actors say with a grain of salt. they're actors and actresses. >> when it comes to mastectomy for some it probably makes sense to do it profill lackicly. >> there was a long-term discussion on concussions in those who play sports. >> they say they have repeated brain concussions. it shows 250,000 athletes age 19 and younger were treated in emergency rooms for concussions. that is up almost 60% since 2001. so the sports themselves haven't changed, jon but obviously
5:43 am
they're just getting a lot more attention now. >> yeah, they are, and we're learning a lot more. it turns out that you can have life-long permanent problems traumatic brain injury, from just having a concussion when you're younger. it's the opposite of what you think. when you get older, you get injured, you take a longer time to heal. it turns out when you're younger if you get a brain injury it's worse then. there are a lot of potential side effects for that. >> holly, what are the worst sports to play? >> what's frightening is it's the big ones and normal ones. for boys football ice hockey lacrosse wrestling. and for girls it's soccer and ice hockey. so these are things we see in many, many schools. i'm sort of saying to myself i think i'll have my girls only join the bridge club. but it's the everyday sports. >> bridge can be dangerous depending on how you play it. >> do helmets actually protect kids, jon? >> it turns out they protect you
5:44 am
from getting a skull fracture and cutting up your face but there's no proof that it prevents you from getting a concussion. if we took a vote in the new room on what was the medical favorite story of the year this next one might be the winner. take a look. >> this is grayson hearing his dad's voice for the very first time. >> daddy loves you. daddy loves you. >> reporter: grayson was born without the nerve that helps connect the ear to the hearing center in the brain. in april he became the first child in the u.s. to receive an auditory brain stem implant as part of a clinical trial. the device on the ear transmits sounds and wires threaded through the skull. they go to a planted electrode that sits in the brain stem. this is zbrason now with his mother nicole. >> reporter: five months have gone by since the operation kchlt you describe what grayson's development has been like? >> it's like a little miracle
5:45 am
every time he hears something. but he's starting to develop speech. >> reporter: grayson's teachers say he spontaneously says a few words like up go and bye-bye. he also just learned one new world. >> ball. i know that because i told him to go get the ball and he went and got it. >> reporter: despite this kind of progress, grayson has a lot of catching up to do. since he was a toddler, he's been communicating with hand gestures. >> you want to make him go up. >> up. >> now he has to link sounds with their meaning one word at a time. you want him to be a normal kid and young man like every parent wants for their kid. >> no, i don't want him to be normal actually. i want him to be extraordinary. >> reporter: to anyone who's met grayson, he already is. >> jon, that's probably your best story too. >> definitely. you've got to love little

reporting for "60 minutes" on the growing problem of electronic waste back in 2008. since then the problem has only become larger. according to the report ewaste will probably grow by 30% in three years. >> joining us to talk ewaste and how to minimize it is cnet's dan ackerman. good morning. why has this become such a big problem? >> everybody has so many devices, a phone, a tablet laptop. we turn them over more quickly. you don't keep them as long as you used to. >> scott was obviously overseas in that report. who's the biggest culprit? >> a lot of it is industrial waste and a lot of it is consumers in the u.s. everyone gets new stuff. what do you do with your old stuff? a lot of people throw it right in the garbage. a lot of mercury, a lot of lead.
5:51 am
especially in your phones. >> in 25 states it's actually illegal to discard your old used electronics. is that henning? >> >> what you need to do is find somewhere to recycle the stuff. it makes it ease to take stuff and put it in a recycling area. the mercury and the lead will be taken out. that's what -- in new york we have a couple of time as year where you drop stuff off. >> there are interesting solution. one says we pay a little more when we get the phone and when we return it regret money back. is that the only way to get people to do it? >> i almost think that's not even necessary because there are so many places where you can recycle electronic stuff. you need do a little research but a lot of stores like best buy will take it back. a lot of companies like dell and apple, they'll take their own stuff back. i was in whole foods and they

news is next. for the rest of you, stick around. this is "cbs this morning saturday." so when did the modern version of christmas how we celebrate it's merge? >> it really begins in the 19th century and two literary events are really important. "a night before christmas" was published in 1823 and really introduces the idea of santa claus as we know him. it's significant. that was in new york. that was a german/dutch colony and all those traditions were allowed. christmas is celebrated in different ways in early parts of america. a little later on of course 1843, charles dickens writes "a christmas carol" and then it's really commented that it's family event. before that it was really kind of an event, a holiday where there was a lot of riotous drinking. kind of like santacon.
5:58 am
that happened a long time ago. there was a riot in 1806 called the christmas riot in new york city. >> vinita was trying to introduce that this morning just before the broadcast and we nixed that. the modern version of santa claus, how did he come to be? >> a lot of things we love and cherish today goes bake to an ancient tradition before christianity. there was a scott named oden who rode across the country on a horse. that got merged together with the name st. nicholas. the dutch call him sinter clause.clause klaus. eventually he becomes santa claus. they all come together.

welcome to "cbs this morning saturday." i'm anthony mason. >> and i'm vinita nair. coming up this half hour yellowstone national park experiences 2,000 earthquakes a year. there's a reason. it's sitting on a super volcano. there's a reason. it's bigger than previously thought. we'll talk with an expert what will happen when it finally erupts. >> then a south carolina man develop add pepper that's so hot it can be used as a weapon. we'll tell you how hot it is. and a great meal to ring in a new year compliments of award-winning chef daniel boulud. a big winter weather
6:01 am
warning. in maine crews are still cutting through broken branches to reconnect power lines brought down by last weekend's major ice storm. at the height of the storm more than a million customers from michigan to new england lost power. meteorologist danielle niles of our boston station wbz-tv joins us. danielle? >> we're tracking this storm from last season 2013. snow showers in the northern plains and heavy rain down along the gulf coast are going to be the weathermakers here. heavy downpours across the southeast will expand northward in through the carolinas and mid-atlantic. at the same time snow will continue to fly through the great lakes, stretching back up into eastern canada. that rain will fall hard over the mid-atlantic and move into new england heading into tomorrow afternoon. lit fall hard in southern new england tomorrow night and snow will fall heavily at times before the whole storm pulls away from the northeast as we head into monday. rainfall amounts will be one to two inches widespread up and
6:02 am
down the eastern seaboard. locally higher amounts heaviest when you get through central georgia down through alabama and snowfall amounts not that bad when you get to chicago and minneapolis. look at the strip, 6 to 12 inches hit hard. it could be more than a foot in portions of maine away from the coastline where they're, of course dealing with like you said thousands of outages. lesser amounts in southern new england. after that the big story is the arctic cold. jet streams are going to dip to the south and a lot of chilly air is going to dip in. for new year's eve for the ball drop it's going to be well below zero. 15 in boston on new year's eve. >> cold way to ring in the new year. danielle niles of our boston station wbz-tv. thank you. rescuers are on their way to
6:03 am
rescue a crew on a ship. it's 100 miles south of tasmania. one of them a chinese ship is expected to arrive tomorrow after being forced to turn around yesterday. the russian ship has been stuck in ice since christmas eve. it seems the fate of the national security agency's national collection of america's telephone data could use a tiebreaker. >> that's because two recent court decisions have given contrast deeg sigss about the surveillance program. the white house says it's needed for the war on terror. chip reid is with the president in hawaii and said the rulings propose a challenge for the obama administration as they announce measures. >> reporter: good morning, anthony and vinita. a federal judge ruled friday that the nsa's massive data collection system is legal. he rejected a challenge to the law by the american civil
6:04 am
liberties union. judge richard pauley cited specific examples of terrorist plots that have been foiled by the nsa program and said quote, as the september 11th adaejs straight, the cot of missing such a thread can be horrific. judge pauley said the nsa program is overseen by all three branchs of government including congress, the justice department, and a special federal court. this opinion directly contradicts a decision early this month by judge leon who called the surveillance program almost orwellian and said once we would have thought this was the stuff of science fiction. the white house had no comment on friday's ruling but a presidential panel earlier this month recommended major changes to the nsa surveillance program and anthony and vinita, a senior white house official here in hawaii told me that when the president returns in january, he will offer a specific set of reforms to the nsa program.
6:05 am
>> chip reid. chip reid traveling with the president in hawaii. thanks. more than 1 million americans will lose their federal unemployment benefits today. president obama is already pushing the get the checks reinstated. he took time off from his vacation in hawaii to call two senators pushing them to get congress to renew the benefits. mr. obama said the cuts will hurt the naks's economic growth and jobs. >> they got the p.i.n. numbers. that is what target said about the hackers who stole financial information from 40 million of its customers. the retailer said the numbers are encrypted so the risk to customers is small but the haerks did get names. debit and credit card numbers and all the codes embedded on the magnetic strip. yellowstone national park could be sitting on a time bomb. there is a super volcano underneath the national treasure that's more than twice the size of the park itself. the u.s. geological survey itself said the volcano last erupted 630,000 years ago.
6:06 am
joining us now is derrick pitts. he's the chief astronomer at the institute and science museum in philadelphia. good morning. >> good morning. >> you're here to scare us. >> absolutely. >> 2 1/2 times the size we thought. >> yes. >> how significant is that? >> it's really significant. the claimer below yellowstone measures about 50 miles wide 20rks miles in legislate, and it's 6 miles below the surface. this chachl ber is absolutely packed full of magma and an eruption from this could cause widespread destruction all across the region. >> as if that was not scary enough experts say they have no idea when this eruption could take place. >> yeah. there are plenty of earthquakes that happen out there as you said earlier, but those earthquakes are indicative of the tivts going on below ground. some of it may be caused by water intrusion and other things like that but the fact of the matter is there were three ee
6:07 am
recommendations in this region before. there's defer it in going to be another one in the future. scientists don't know when. >> this could be like 40,000 years, right? >> we have no idea but there will always be adjusting earthquakes in that region so that region will remain seismically active and will be volcanically active. it's just the big one that people have to really be concerned about, and if we can get the science a little more refined, we'll have a better idea of when we might have some ballpark idea when to expect something might happen. >> now you're starting to comfort me a bit. i was going to ask you, are we going to get a warning, maybe a century or so that this is coming? >> the really cool thing is that scientists can really mod tl area well because there are seismic detectors, 40 of them all around the region measuring in different ways and essentially taking an extra if you -- x-ray if you will and having a better grip on how to say when
6:08 am
something could possibly be come coming coming. >> how are the earlier estimates so undervalued? how come scientists didn't realize how big the well was? >> it's duff to know what's underground. we're looking at something 6 to 9 mile bess low the earth. it's enormous. we didn't know the parameters. but now that there are so many more sensors coming to the site to be used you know, the advances in technology and model making and things like that help scientists to get a better picture, more accurate than in the past. >> you hinted at this before but what would an eruption really mean? >> well this is so big that previous eruptions, the last eruption that happened 630,000 years ago was measured to be about 200,000 times greater than the mount st. helens eruption. 200,000 times bigger. that's enormous.
6:09 am
the last eruption spread 10 feet of ash in regions miles away. >> yellowstone national park is located a seismically active region, isn't it? >> you have to think the whole region is the basin of an ancient volcano under which is this enormous magna chamber. it going to be seismically active for a very long time to come. >> but 40,000 years, right, derek? i'm okay. >> at least not tomorrow. >> let us know when the predictions get more solid. >> thanks so much. >> my pleasure. it is about 9 minutes after the hour and here's a look at the weather for your weekend.

6:15 am
tunnel of light. >> she's been taking pictures since she was a kid, growing up in michigan and florida. >> it's almost like i have to do that to breathe. >> what made you pick up a camera? >> my father was a very serious amateur photographer and like any little girl who wants to connect with her dad, you want to do what he's doing and be part of it. >> the camera offered something else. >> freedom. >> freedom? >> yeah. freedom. the camera is a passpot into people's lives, and i learned so much through other people. >> goldsmith has covered sports and worked for the "national geographic," but she's always had a way with musicians. >> that's it. yep. and so i would sit in the position that i wanted them to be in or stand or jump or do whatever and i would have them

6:17 am
films. i wanted to try it not unlike whoo i tried with daryl hall. >> this is bruce -- >> this is bruce in 1978 in new jersey, and this is an example of finding a location that suit as what the artists and what they're writing about. >> you ended up having a relationship with bruce. >> yes. >> it started in the '70s but ended when bruce's shadow grew to big. >> listen. i was with bruce when they spelled his name wrong on the marquee, when in israel they thought he was jewish. but as bruce became more well known, someone becomes relegated to the identity of somebody's girlfriend and i wouldn't have even liked somebody's wife. >> lynn goldsmith wanted to make her own mark and she has. i don't take pictures she likes to say. i make them. >> i understand the language of certain musicians, and they will
