welcome to "cbs this morning." good morning norah. >> good morning to you charlie. >> we begin with the nfl. first time miami dolphins players are talking about the bullying scandal rocking the football world. many players defending the veteran suspended after reportedly sending threatening messages to a mediumteammate. >> we hear from the father of the player that says he was the target. mark strassmann is at the practice facility. good morning. >> good morning norah and charlie and viewers in the west. the accounted attorney in this case has the power to follow the facts. his pointment is another sign of the black eye the bullying scandal has become for the nfl. >> nfl commissioner roger good el says tim wells has looked into the bullying allegations.
incognito sent threatening teks and voice mails that also contained racial slurs. >> if anything needs to be corrected we'll take all necessary measures to fix it to insure this doesn't happen again. >> there were more allegations of racism against incognito. nfl hall of famer sapp said it happened to him during a game. >> he's calling you the "n" word? >> yeah. he kicked me and called me weather. >> richie didn't use that kind of language. >> tannehill is the quarterback. he said incognito is not like that. >> he said he's like my little brother. he gave him a hard time and messed with him but he was the first to have his back. >> team officials would not address reports that dolphins coaches told incognito to
toughen you have martin. martin left the team and went to california to be with his family his father spoke with omg insider. >> he's a strong man. he's doing fine. >> sports illustrator says many around the league think martin mishandled the situation and now sees him as being soft. >> there's a culture when players have issues with other players, it's handled internally man to man. they feel this hurts the team and hurting the people who are involved. >> reporter: there's a new report that before martin left the team his agent called the dolphins general manager to complain about his bullying. the gm said he should stand up for himself and punch incognito. the dolphins had no comment zblmpt james brown is host of the nfl today on cbs sports.
good morning. let me begin with this. what's the significance of a special council and the significance of this leading trial lawyer ted wells? >> first of all, mr. wells, his track record and credentials are impeccable. it's an excellent move by the nfl to establish independent council to have complete free reign to investigate this so we will all have a complete establishment of what the the true facts thof situation is. as a matter of fact we know it's a multiple layered one. we haven't gotten to the core issue with a lot more still to come forward. a superb move. >> is this an isolated case? is nfl concerned bullying is much more wide pred and it wouldn't somebody like wells? >> that's a good question. i think in this particular case the reaction by the league is a proper one.
it's not my sense and i've got a good finger of what's going on around the league. this goes on to varying degrees but not crossing over like this case with particularly offensive language being used. i understand the locker room is not a chapel. nothing to this extreme. . this is one of the cases it's lard to get your hands around the facts. each day someone comes out in support of one idea or the other. you have veterans coming out saying about incognito it's not as if it seemed. he was supportive of this young player. at the other hand the young player clearly felt he was being intimidated. >> let me be clear as well. i need to be included in all of this and all of us exercise restraint until facts have come out. on one of the programs i was animated last night because i was asked my personal opinion. because there were black ballplayers that came in support of incognito and language he
used some how you that justified it. let me perfectly clear, the language about the young man and his mother by any stretch of the imagination is not to be condoned. it's shadowed because some players black balled that makes it right. language of that is not a standard. it's shadowed by black ballplayers and said it's the right thing to do. absolutely not. >> twitter is trading chirp for a bell. about 40 minutes ago the social media powerhouse rang in the start of the day at the new york stock exchange as twitter goes public. dow is up after opening another record high. that comes on news the economy grew by nearly 3% this summer faster than analysts expected.
twitter opening price appears above the estimated price. welcome. >> i'm tweeting here on the set. of course. >> you're addicted. >> some of us are. that's right. >> what might we expect today sn. >> i think the stock market is strong. the twitter folks have learn ed from the mistakes that the facebook ipo a year and a half ago. i look for this ipo, initial public offering to do well. stock will probably triedade up. >> twitter is barely marketable. why should we think there's a growth? >> if you're invested in the stock you're taking a flier. the company is not making money. they say they can. the company is growing in terms of number of users and revenues. ouf to believe they're going to figure out a way to make a lot
of money same way facebook has. we've seen sponsored tweets and that sort of thing. it's a bit of a flier. >> you and other people say it has the possibility of being bigger than facebook? in what context? >> in terms of number of users. right now you it's a lot smaller than facebook. 230 billion versus a billion plus for facebook. there's a lot of potential in terms of people using the service overseas. three quarters of number of people that use twitter are from outside the united states. >> twitter has 230 monthly users up 6 prsz from the last quarter. facebook was growing faster at this point in their growth. a lot of people say instagram is growing faster than twitter. again, why should we think twitter a hot property. not that it's good but how strong for potential growth? >> when you look to the ceo and
other people who are at the company, jack dorsey of course, the non executive chairman. they'll tell you privately and publicly as well to shareholders they have a lot of plans to make this service be a part of news gathering. to be a part of advertising campaigning for companies, to make it a part of social discourse, to make it part of what's going on in washington d.c. they have a lot of plans. you're absolutely rights they're not specific now. growth has slowed. if you look back quarter by quarter it's modulated gone and down. >> kinds of people that use it is growing. >> that's right. >> thanks a lot. major health news in the last few minutes. food and drug administration plans to ban transfat. they require the the agency to ban it. the move could prevent 20,000 heart attacks and 7,000 deaths each year. no time line is announced.
the top technology advisor oversees the healthcare.gov is on his way out. he's the first official to leave since the bomped roll out of the website. 16 sold the president how frustrated they are with the problems. major garrett is at the white house. >> reporter: good morning. president barack obama came here so the senators the could vent. one described it opening a pressure valve and letting off speed. on the road yesterday, president barack obama tried to do the same thing. >> president barack obama flew to dallas to escape belt way scrutiny and offer this promise of a better time. >> we are going to get this done. when we do not if when we do you're going to have families all across this great state of
texas who are going to have the security and the well being of high quality affordable health insurance. >> that guarantee came after another rough day for health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius. >> access to healthcare.gov has miserably frustrating experience. i'm focused on fixing it. >> even democrats focused on a new website before month's end. >> it's a two way street. tell us what's going on fully. >> senate republicans siting months of ignored questions about potential problems and the possibility of insurance policy cancellations were more blunt. >> the only thing i can conclude is that it's impossible to do something in this administration is that gets you fired. >> democrat bill nelson demanded sebelius punish website
designers. >> i want you to burn their fingers and make them pay for not being responsible. >> but most of team obama care remains in place. the president's approval rating hovers in the low 40s. rivals george w. bush at the same stage of his presidency and right after hurricane katrina that. >> i need to be a doctor. >> hey do you have that obama care? >> oh what's that? >> it's great. >> carrie underwood and brad paisley at the country music a wards mocked obama care care to the tune of amarillo by morning. ♪ oh this is getting on my last nerve. obama care by morning over six people served ♪ >> reporter: the insurance

the ableges of four and eight isn't strapped into the booster seat. children in boosters are 45% less likely to sustain injuries and crashes than kids restrained by seat belts alone. some booster seats perform better than others. jessica is the iihs spokesperson. >> boosters weren't doing a great job properly placing belts on kids. >> the test began five years ago and found that lap belts and shoulder straps on some seats did not properly fit children. this year a record number of new models received the highest possible rating. 19 out of 31. mofb among them evenflo chase. high end models fell a little short. >> one surprise was britax. he missed the top rating for three seats.
>> the company says they undergo rigorous testing and working with vehicle manufactures to insure all seats can be properly installed and used correctly lyly each and every time. >> some britax models that performed well. for the ones that didn't the company tell us they'll make a fix to allow seat belts on booster seats to fit better. there was another surprising recommendation that children should remain in booster seating up until the age of 12. >> jeff thank you. >> and you can see the entire report with ratings on all booster seats by going to "cbs this morning".com. time to show you headings from around the globe. talks of the nuclear program kicked off this morning. iran's foreign minister thinks a deal could be within reach. evidence that former

with hot gunfire. are we going have to get army medics? but the question is what's driving it. is it the medial coverage? is it the fact when the assaults weapons ban expired in 2004 you start to see the decline, is it the defunding that has left some of these people off medication and not managed. but nobody mass the research yet to say which or what combination. and, of course there's that other question which is how much do we have to do with it. >> we, the media. >> yeah. >> okay. you know all the people who do all the profiles of all the people who commit these kinds of crimes. do they have any answers to this kind of denominator? >> that they have the answers that there is no specific -- no profile of the active shooter. >> but they were always troubled individuals who are loaners who have -- >> there are common denominators but not one common to all of
them. some of the people are psychotic psychotic. some are not. some of them are angry. you know that's another thing that they're going to look at is triggering events. >> a quick question. is it true in other -- i mean is this unique to the united states or is it happening at large? >> charlie, we have the guy from the british police sitting on the other side of table and we said how many people in your city. he said 6 million. i said how many murdered by gunfire last year. he said six. >> unbelievable. that says something. >> yeah. >> john miller thank you. and new revelations about the death of king tut. what they're saying now about the young he died.

>> is this an isolated case sore the nfl concerned that bullying is much more widespread? >> understand that the locker room is not a chapel. i get that. but nothing should be this extreme. >> the twitter folks have learned from the mistakes of the facebook ipo a year and a half ago. i would look for this to do well this morning. the stock will probably trade up. >> there was another surprising recommendation that children should remain in booster seats up until the age of 12. >> a group of marines returning home from afghanistan received a heartwarming surprise. police firefighters and uso volunteers gathered on short notice to honor the troops. >> they're enjoying a much longer life than the poor old king himself did. >> he seems to have a very undignified end. >> the sky lights up across southern california. >> is that a firework at first? then i realized that that couldn't be that big.

with the obamacare website are frustrating and unacceptable. yesterday the secretary of health and human services kathleen sebelius testified before a senate committee and tried to address some of those democratic concerns. >> while we don't have the fully functioning system yet that consumers need and deserve, we do have a plan in place to identify prioritize and manage the remaining fixes across the system. >> reporter: what we've seen over the past week or so is more and more democrats coming out and trying to distance themselves not from the health care law itself which they all by and large still support, but from the way that the website was rolled out and the way that the administration has handled the fallout from that. here's why democrats have some concerns. if you look at cbs exit polling from the virginia governor's race on tuesday, 53% of voters in that state say they oppose the health care law. ken cuccinelli the republican won 81% of those voters.
now, he still lost the race norah, charlie and gayle, but not by as much as everyone expected, just two points. vice president joe biden got his telephone lines crossed this week but it turned into a good joke. on election night biden called to congratulate boston's mayor-elect marty walsh. he called the wrong marty walsh. biden dialed up a political consult went the same name. realizing his mistake, biden congratulated the other walsh on not becoming mayor. he called him up and said you son of a gun, you did it. then the political consultant named marty walsh said sore se you got the wrong guy. >> a lot of people did it. it was not just joe biden who had the duh moment. >> apparently there are dozens of martyr walshes in boston. the new movie "philomena" stars judi dench as a mother
looking for her long lost son. >> philomena, how are you? >> i had a hip replacement last year martin. it's much better than the old one i had before. and it's titanium. >> good job, otherwise we'd have to oil you like the tin man. >> is that right? >> no i mean like the "wizard of oz." >> he's just joking mom. >> the film received an r rating because of strong language. the weinstein company the producer is fighting the decision. that would be the one and only harvey weinstein who joins us at the table. you are ready to go to battle again. they're talking about hip replacements and titanium. that doesn't seem like r rating. >> there's two f-words in the movie. you're allowed one f. and this was like the king's speech. the movie is the gentlest wonderful, true story filled with humor and joy. they should just put pg-13,
strong language on this, and there can be exceptions. so it's under appeal. >> why don't you take the f-word out the second time? >> again like asking a director to change the intention. i think you've seen -- >> i've seen it. >> it is not gratuitous. >> i had to figure out where was it. i'm sitting here trying to remember. you have to be over 17 to see it. the chances are that most people will go see this movie will be 30 years and older. don't you think? you're not going to have young people going to see the movie. >> our research shows that especially down south and in the middle west the pg-13 rating is very important for adults. >> they use it as a guide. >> there are certain people that do not want to go see an r-rated movie. usually they're church families. this is a movie that a church family would profit from seeing. they'll love the movie. it's very entertaining. on the reverse hand why should they give it an r and restrict
it? i don't think that makes sense. i feel like i'm here every six months when they do something like this, but they seem to do it to us more than anybody else. >> the title you want for one of your movies. >> i'm having "butler" flashbacks here. >> there is an absurdity to this. we're handling it differently this time. >> it co-stars judi dench. and let's take a look at that. ♪ >> just when you thought i was dead -- i have an important mission for you. are you familiar with mpaa? >> are you at war? are you at war with the mpa? >> with the blessing of barbara

butler" became a giant hit. it opened in england without any of this problem. >> what was it rated in england? >> general audience. kids could go see the movie without any parental supervision. am i having fun with the mpaa? of course, sending james bond. >> what is there yet to come out and what does it look like to you are the early front-runners? >> i think that a marvelous movie "12 years a slave" is terrific "the butler" is getting tremendous response. movies to come out, my own, i'm screening "mandela long walk to freedom" tonight at the white house for the president and other screenings, "august osage county." david r. russell has a movie. this has been an outstanding year for film. >> he bass great, too, bob redford and bruce dern may get

hummingbird flying in canada. as i let it go it hovered and then disappeared. i thought, boy, that would be a great way to get to school. i thought if i could imitate the hummingbird, my life would change. >> reporter: celebrated on television and films for decades the flying car remained an illusive dream for many but paul moller has dreamed longer than most. >> a big metal one. >> reporter: we first met 25 years ago. back then he showed us a flying saucer-like model he'd been working on since 1967. do you ever get discouraged in this quest? >> no. i think we have enough periodic successes that we keep going. >> reporter: all these years later moller's sky car has flown, but at the end of a texter for safety. he's now waiting for the faa to
categorize unique aircraft before he can test it with a pilot. this has been an expensive venture for you. how much money has gone into this development so far? >> we've taken -- we have spent $2.5 million a year for 40 years. that comes out to around $100 million. much of it was created by businesses. moehler made millions selling mufflers but he's spent most of it trying to become the henry ford of flying cars. >> at some point in time certainly, the next ten years you'll be able to buy this vehicle for the price of a good automobile. >> you're talking $70,000 to $100,000? >> i think less than that. again, we think we can build the engine for about $30 per horsepower. 30,000 horsepower. $30,000. so $60,000, yes. >> you're saying it really -- it doesn't take any skill to fly it. >> no. the computers are there to do that work.
>> reporter: what's more moehler said his fully automated sky car will do the driving for you and without distraction like travgs stop signs and pedestrians will be a safer way to travel. >> you're going to be delivered. you can sleep, you can read. you can play computer games. you can work on the way. >> reporter: the average person has a similar dream. >> it's surprising how many people have the dream i have. i'm not the only guy who wanted to imitate the hummingbird. there's a very larjd part of the population aside from the idea of getting out of the damn traffic jams out there. the mobility. that's more than getting out of traffic. it's getting out of life. >> reporter: but it's been so elusive. >> it's been so elusive because it's got a fair amount of money attached to it to make it happen. but we've had clever people patience, and time to make it

"the new york times" reports sexual assaults in the u.s. military are up smartly. there were more than 3,500
complaints from october to last june. that's a nearly 50% increase over the same period a year earlier. "the wall street journal" says walmart suffered a website glitch that touched off a shopping frenzy. walmart says it will not honor the accidental discounts. instead it will send customers $10 gift certificates. >> you can't expect to get a treadmill for $20. >> yeah, but they made a mistake. >> yeah, they did. and it's a big one. >> it's corporate image. >> it's a big one. the "los angeles times" says autism can be found in children much younger. they start making contact between the age of 2 and 6 years old. early detection leads to more effective treatment. the dallas news says dallas cowboys legend tony dorset has
been diagnosed with a degenerative condition tied to depression and dementia. >> i'm very short-tempered. it gets worse. >> reporter: dorsett is or . >> dorsett is among 4,500 nfl players sugar for concussions. the courier journal says kevin ware finished as his team won. >> good to see him back on the court. and the orange county register looks at workers who brought their parents to the office. it's meant to give moms and dads a better understanding of what their grown children do for a liveing living. if my parjts were alive i think this is a great idea.
i would love for them to come and see. >> the greatest thing you can give to your parents is it all turned out. >> yeah. >> did you know there's a simple genetic test that could show you whether you're likely to get a serious disease, and the price is just $99. it is the brainchild of anne wojcicki. she's the founder of "23 and me." she's featured on the cover of "fast company" and they call her the most daring ceo in america. "23 and me" has a powerful idea that genetic testing can make us all healthier. by spitting into a cup and sending it in for sample users can find out about 250 health conditions and traits. the results cover everything from lactose intolerance to alzheimer's disease. >> the "23 and me" test is one of a whole new generation of tests that can look at huge amounts of your dna and tell you
a lot more about what's in your genes that we could ever know before. >> reporter: in may it made headlines when angelina jolie had a double ma textmy after doctors told her she tested positive for the same gene mutation that killed her mother. >> the more you know about dna -- >> 23 and me has more than 470,000 customers. but the goal is tens of millions. the company wants users to be able to share their genetic information with researchers. the idea is that medical research can then be crowd sourced. the potentially large amount of genetic data could lead to rapid advances in curing multiple dae ceases but there are also concerns about privacy and the possible downside of have too much information about your genetic fate. >> people need to approach this with their eyes wide open, understanding the risk but willing to learn because this is the direction medicine is going
to go in the future. >> anne wojcicki good morning. >> good morning. thanks for having me. >> you wanted tens of millions. you did it yourself. how did it change your behavior? >> i learned i'm high risk for breast cancer and my mother has it so it really changed my behavior in that i actually stopped drinking alcohol casually and so for me it was really empowering to get information where i can actually make lifestyle changes to decrease my risk. >> and it all comes from spitting in a cup. i remember doing this two years ago. it's a whole lot of spit but you can get a lot of information that can be life-changing. what do you say to people who say too much information i don't want to know and go with fate? >> for everyone it's a personal choice for everybody. but i think for all of us we all want to live to be as healthy as possible so one of the goals that i have is to be able to say healthy at a hundred. i don't want to be effective will i managed at 100. i don't want to be well treated.
i want to be healthy. what your genome does is it's actually a roadmap to understand what can you potentially do to be as healthy as possible. >> and it's doable to be healthy to a hundred, isn't it? >> i totally believe in this world it's possible. >> how much data do you need? with enough data you can change health care. >> yes i totally believe that. if you think about every time you go into a grocery store or target they're collecting data on you. you walk in and they can effectively target you. there was a 17-year-old girl identified as being pregnant. that's what we want you to do. go to the doctor's office and say, charlie, you're three years away from being diabetic based on all these behaviors. >> what's the tipping point? you hope to have with "23 and me" at least a million people by the end of 2013. >> a million people walking
around with their genomes is disruptive to the health care system. they're going to walk in knowing information about their jean gnome and that's going to be catalyst to have people start thinking about their prevention and getting genetics into the mainstream of health care sniet just gets increasingly what you can do. >> yeah. i think it's again, more and more information. the goal of having more and more information is to better be able to predict what is your health outcome going to be. it's a frustrating experience for everyone when they walk into the dock door's office and they say, try this. it may work. >> i don't want to walk in and say, try this and it may work. i want to know. >> even the name of the company "23 and me" has to do with the number of chromosomes that make us up. what do the doctors say? >> any time it's new technology for physicians it's a challenge. we partnered with udacity and created a course about
jeannettics and everyone can learn about it. we need everyone and society to get educated about genetics and what does that mean? what does a genetic risk actually mean? >> i want to ask you about it because there was a story that caught my eye. your company was awarded a patent for gamy donor selection which leads to the question of designer babies. you could have a drop-down menu at fertility clinics where you can choose eye color, hair color. do you think that's the future of fertility clinics and that type of having babies in the future? >> i think the reason we put that out it's one of the common questions out. i see your blue eyes. if your partner has blue eyes are your children going to have blue eyes? one of our goals is to get people to understand what does that mean? we all here oh my mother's father was bald therefore, my children might be bald. those are old wives taels. we want to bring that credibility of how genetics gets
passed down to the next generation. >> i don't think people understand. you can take an embryo now and take several celling out of it and you can tell not only the gender of the baby hair color, eye color. you tell a lot. >> hair color eye color, yes. when i had my child, i knew for certain, yes my child's going to have brown eyes. so i think that is the direction we're going to be going. it's definitely incredibly helpful for people to be able to know. go into a pregnancy knowing, yes, my child is likely to have this condition and be aware and informed parent. >> all right. an wojcicki. can i just ask you? do you feel as good as you look? >> i feel great. you know it's been an interesting six months or so but i feel really good. >> we love the most daring ceo in america. >> we're out to do some more. >> the most daring ceo. a badass on the cover.

economy, what is going on in my group, what my day-to-day routine is. >> in 2012 prokhorov ran for president of russia. to no one's surprise he lost to extraman vladimir putin. >> give me your strongest assess mnlts of vladimir putin. what makesing him tick? we awe know he's a former kgb agent. >> i think my feeling, he's the strongest politician guy on the planet for the time being. >> should the u.s. trust him? >> when you're talking politics it's very vulnerable. what we need now in the first stage is to have very good casual relation. that's why i'm here. culture unites nations. >> prokhorov recently formed his own political party. as a businessman who made his fortune from the collapse of the soviet union, he believes russia
needs evolution, not revolution. >> it's only maximum percent of it for the time being but in the near future my goal to address them, my ideas. so it's a long-term problem. >> but your ideas are what? entrepreneurship. >> market economy. n monopolies a lot of competition. >> political freedom. >> and to be part of a european union. >> so russia in your mind is european. >> yeah, sure. >> can you do it? >> i hope so but i think it will take maybe 10 15rks years. >> one clear line he differs from russia's political leadership is his take on edward snowden. >> would you have given asylum to edouard snowden? >> i think for me it's a great testimony that the two countries are far from adequate. russia, they really think he was a traitor. >> the majority of russians in
your judgment think edward snowden was a traitor. >> was a traitor. and because we have very special history, russian history, and where we have a very strong belief about loyalty if you're working in a position, especially there. then you don't go auto and steal all the secrets. >> so you would not have granted him asylum. >> i think, yes. my position never. >> for now he knows his political goals are a long shot. >> how dlong you think putin will stay in power? >> he's the most popular politician in russia by far. >> his basketball team looked more poised for a championship a feat that the consummate bachelor has a lot riding on. >> you have said if you don't win a championship in five years you will punish yourself and get married. >> it was a joke. >> so you're backing away from
it. >> no. just for the time being i'm not looking for the wife. >> but the wife is looking for you. >> maybe. >> there's also this. if you're going to run for president of almost any country, you can't be a bachelor, you know? you have to have a wife children. you have to be like most people. >> you know believe in the global world. it's completely different. maybe i'll be the first bachelor in the world. >> that was tongue in cheek. he said the right thing. you don't have to necessarily be anything. you can be a global bachelor. >> what was that like being there? >> it was fascinating. we were sitting in his presidential box above the court. all these russians are talking in russian. you're thinking what a smart thing. here i'm watching an nb a team and they're talking within my
it's estimated that 30% of the traffic in a city is caused by people looking for parking. that's remarkable that so much energy is, is wasted. streetline has looked at the problem of parking which has not been looked at for the last 30, 40 years, we wanted to rethink that whole industry so we go and put out these sensors in each parking spot and then there's a mesh network that takes this information sends it over the internet so you can go find exactly where those open parking spots are. the collaboration with citi was important for providing us the necessary financing; allow this small start-up to go provide a service to municipalities.
citi has been an incredible source of advice how to engage with municipalities how to structure deals and as we think about internationally, citi is there every step of the way. so the end result is you reduce congestion you reduce pollution and you provide a service to merchants and that certainly is huge. when our little girl was born, we got a subaru. it's where she said her first word.
