7:01 am
>> daddy, they found us. >> they found us, baby. >> they found us. i'm so happy. >> we are speaking to them about their ordeal and they're their happy homecoming this monday morning, november 1 tsz, 2010. captioning funded by cbs >> november is upon us. good morning everybody. hope you had a good weekend. welcome to "the early show." i'm maggie rodriguez. >> i'm harry smith. good morning. >> it's been six weeks since rutgers freshman tyler clementi committed suicide after two classmates posted videos of him. this gained so much interest and for the first time we're hearing from the two suspects, the two accused of spying on him who have until now kept quiet. we're hearing their version of the story and we'll bring it to you. >> let's get to the news then this morning.
7:02 am
it is now less than 24 hours before polls open for the crucial midterm elections. first lady michelle obama is out campaigning today, hoping the democrats can hold off what some are predicting could be a huge win for republicans. cbs news senior white house correspondent bill plante has the details. >> reporter: good morning. 24 hours and what many predict to be a huge republican blow-out. there is a new pew poll out which shows that republican voters remain far more enthusiastic than democrats. the president spent his last two days on the campaign trail trying to ignite a fire under democrats to get them to the polls. >> i can't hear you. did you say yes, we can? >> reporter: president obama spent the weekend in the last-ditch effort to stave off big losses in tuesday's midterm elections. he barnstormed through four
7:03 am
states in two days including illinois where his old senate seat is a toss-up. and ohio where democrats could lose both the senate seat and the governor's race. cleveland is a democrat stronghold but the president drew a less than capacity crowd. >> if everyone who fought for change in 2008 shows up to vote in 2010, we will win this election. i'm confident of that. >> sarah palin predicted tomorrow will be a political earthquake for democrats and the rebuke from voters for the president. >> they are going to say you blew it, president obama. we gave you the two years to fulfill your promise of making sure that our economy starts roaring back to life again. >> experts say it's now almost certain that the gop will pick up more than the 39 seats needed to regain control of the house, and could begin as many as 60. minnesota governor tim pawlenty, a possible republican candidate for president in 2012 told bob schieffer on face the nation the
7:04 am
voters are reacting to what he calls the overreach. >> people are angry, also worried about the future, and they are saying this is not what we thought we were getting when we elected president obama the democratic congress. now the pendulum is swinging back to the republicans. >> reporter: well, the pendulum may be swinging back but nobody wants to acknowledge that. they know that the house is lost, or very likely lost, they think they can hold on to the senate. and yesterday the democratic national committee said it was pumping an additional $3 million into key senate races in toss-up states. harry. >> bill plante, thank you. also in washington, for an exclusive interview is mississippi governor haley barbour, chairman of the republican governors association. good morning. >> good morning. >> so republicans predicted to win big in the house tomorrow. you going to go so far as to say they take the senate too? >> well, i hope it's as good as bill plante says. i think it is highly likely we will win a majority in the
7:05 am
house. but it's harder in the senate. it's more of a stretch. we have to win a net of ten. i think we'll make significant gains in the senate. but i don't know if we can make it to ten. you have to run the table. >> it's an interesting piece in "the wall street journal" editorial page today. it says that last -- the last election was a voting out the other party and that this election again will be the same thing. that american is going to vote out the party in power. what promise can you make that what americans are yearning for will be answered in the election tomorrow? >> i think it's very important observation, this is a referendum on obama's policies and the american people do not like obama's policies. they don't like all of this outrageous spending, they don't like running up the deficits, they don't like piling trillions of debt on our children and grand children and they don't think it works. they think it's been bad for the economy. that it has made it harder to
7:06 am
create jobs. we republicans we have to understand they aren't saying hey, we love you republicans. we're saying we're not satisfied. we want to give you a chance. >> that becomes interesting. if that's true now, and that was true two years ago what are the republicans understanding now that they didn't understand two years ago? >> i think very importantly what you're going to see is the republicans are going to respond to what the american people are saying. less spending. no tax -- >> the promise is that they are going to cut $100 billion out of the budget in this first year. is that possible? >> $100 billion is less than 3% of the federal budget. in mississippi our appropriations this year are 13.3% below where they were 2 years ago. i was on tv yesterday with tim kaine, the democratic national chairman, a very nice guy, by the way. in virginia, they have just cut their spending by billions of dollars. the idea that the federal government can't save 3%, the american people know better thaó
7:07 am
that. >> less but not least, a lot of people wonder, 1994 was important year for republicans and republicans swept in two years after bill clinton took office. some people would say that didn't end so well for the republicans, especially with the stalemated government. have you any concern that might happen again? >> well, i think it's very likely. it's going to be up to the president. i think the republicans are going to hear the people very plainly. cut out all of this spending. don't raise our taxes. focus on job creation. economic growth. what's the president going to hear? and i can't answer that. we'll have to hear from the president. >> are you going to run for president? >> well, after this election is over we'll see if there is anything to think about. i appreciate the idea. >> governor, always a pleasure. thanks for your time. >> thank you. >> take care. >> that is not a no. we'll watch that. now the latest on the mail bomb plot t. skies may still not be safe.
7:08 am
that's the concession from white house officials who admit their concern there could be more bombs out there. bob is in washington this morning with the latest. bob, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, maggie. with the u.s. put a hold on shipments from yemen as law enforcement officials search for other possible cargo bombs. sources say there is no doubt the plot was hatched by al qaeda in the arabian peninsula. the bombs are pointing investigators to this man. an explosives mastermind who fashioned the underwear bomb used in the failed christmas day attack. a series shown here with his face partly covered built the body cavity bomb which is his brother used in a suicide attack against a terrorism official. now officials say the powerful cargo bombs hidden in printers and wired bear the hallmarks of his handy work. >> we're concerned about individuals in yemen with bomb making capabilities so i think that there are a number of
7:09 am
individuals who are responsible for putting this plot together. >> reporter: a woman arrested over the weekend for mailing the packages has been freed. authorities say someone stole her identity and used her name to ship the potentially deadly packages. the printer bomb were destined for chicago synagogues at least one of the devices spent time on two passenger jets. qatar shipped from yemen to dohah and on to dubuy. sources say about 15 other suspect packages maimed from yemen around the same time have been found and cleared. but officials worry there could be other explosive packages out there somewhere. in any case, al qaeda in the arabian peninsula present as long term threat. >> al qaeda's affiliate in yemen is the most dangerous of the branches or allies. they have hardened al qaeda
7:10 am
leaders from the old days. >> sources say the bombs wired to cell phone components were likely designed to explode in the air and not on the ground. but, with the pack knowledge as in a complicated network it's not clear if terrorists were trying to target passenger planes or cargo jets. >> thank you, bob. also in washington the head of the transportation security administration john pistole. good morning. >> good morning, maggie. >> president obama's chief counter terrorism adviser admits we can't presume there aren't more out there. what is the tsa doing to make sure they don't wind up on an airplane? >> maggie, we've taken a number of steps with our international colleagues and of course in the u.s. intelligence and law enforcement communities, but working with international partners to shore up the defenses that we have and terms of trying to identify where other suspect packages may be. >> it seems to me that these terror groups are looking for and finding these weaknesses in
7:11 am
our security. is this using cargo something the tsa planned for? >> we're aware that we're facing a determined enemy, obviously and looking for vulnerabilities we may have in our vast transportation system. so we're aware that the cargo has been a possible target from the standpoint of any opportunity that they may have, we go back to christmas day and the passenger and richard reid and of course 9/11. then we look at other venues that they may pose a threat to and so again, we worked with our both the private sector, the major cargo shippers to take affirmative steps to do everything possible to protect those shipments. >> you haven't been specific. you say you've taken steps. is that deliberate or can you share with us something that you're doing to make the skies safer? >> sure. we have done several things. for example, we're trying to be a risk-based intelligence driven
7:12 am
operation here, and so the focus of course is on yemen, any packages destined for the u.s., and so on friday issued an order which put a ground hold on any packages out of yemen, destined for the u.s. on any shipper, or on any passenger flights. we've also taken steps working with the yemen authorities to have a team of experts at the airport to provide additional screening, and training, and expertise with additional equipment to assure that any packages that come out of yemen once that ban is lifted will be more secure. >> can i ask you, because it's not just packages from yemen we need to worry about, it's not just cargo from yemten. as this potential attack illustrated even if cargo is scanned it doesn't mean it doesn't contain explosives. this was designed to beat security. how can we be sure that the cargo with us on our planes is safe? >> again, we use the risk based intelligence driven approach where we try to make sure that we have the latest intelligence
7:13 am
and then using the best technology we have here in the u.s., working with international allies, we designate 100% of high risk cargood on passenger planes as significant to have screened. the challenge is in the broader arena where we have over 7 billion pounds of cargo that is shipped every year, millions of pieces, how do we work with our international colleagues, bot in the aviation sector and governments to ensure that we are providing the best possible security for anything entering the u.s. >> hopefully that's a challenge that you're undertaking. john pistole, thank you very much. >> thank you, maggie. >> time for the rest of the news. erica hill is at the news desk. good morning. >> good morning. good morning to everyone at home. the deadly siege of a baghdad church ended this morning. al qaeda-linked gunmen stormed the church and took the
7:14 am
congregation about 120 people hostage. four hours later iraqi forced moved in. at least 52 people were killed in the battle that followed including one priest. indonesia's largest volcano erupted again spewing smoke and debris high in the air. mount merapi has been erupting for a week. at least 38 people are dead. there are 22 volcanos in indonesia, all increasingly active. 30 dor theodore sorensen has died >> ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country. >> ted sorensen wrote those words and many of kennedy's speeches. he was a close policy strategist and adviser to president kennedy. their styles merged. he knew what kennedy wanted to say and how. sorensen died of complications of a stroke. he was 82. a history-making game 4 for
7:15 am
the world series. george herbert walker bush watched as his son threw out the ceremonial first pitch in texas and that marks the first time two former presidents attended a world series game, that's according to major league baseball. there was of course also a game itself. san francisco's aubrey huff hit a two-run homer. san francisco now leads the series three games to one and could wrap it up in game five tonight in texas. tiger woods said this morning he's not surprised he's now ranked as the second best golfer in the world. after more than five years at number one, woods dropped to second behind lee westwood of england. woods is hoping for a better 2011. tomorrow the international space station marks the tenth birthday. we have some pictures to show you. nighttime pictures taken by the astronauts on board. you can see italy there, egypt river and the nile river, rather

to survive under such harsh conditions but first, new developments in the cyber bullying case of tyler clementi. he committed suicide after two classmates allegedly used a videocam to spy on him while having a sexual encounter another man. good morning, jeff oonz. >> reporter: good morning to you. the two students you mentioned in this case have remained large lg si lents up until now but now their lawyers are out with their strongest statements yet. they are charged with invasion of privacy, accuse of using a webcam to spy on classmaim tyler clementi during his sexual encounter with another man on september 19th. but their lawyers tell this newspaper their clients did see anything sexual. the statute of defining sexual contact refers to nudity and private parts and, to my knowledge, nothing like that was seen. the lawyers also contend their
7:32 am
clients did nothing with the small amount of video they did see. ravi's attorney, nothing was transmitted beyond one computer and what was seen was only viewed for a matter of seconds. ravi did use his twitter account followed by 150 people to say wei had, quote, seen clementi making out with a dude. but no matter who saw it, legal experts say it may only matter whether or not clemente believe sdthd the video made it to the internet. >> this question whether, in fact the video was disseminated on the internet is of very limited legal relevance. what i think we have to think about is whether the victim thought this film was being put on the internet. because, that may have been why he killed himself. >> reporter: on september 22nd, clementi jumped to his death off the george washington bridge. >> it's not just a prank. it's not a joke. people do do things like kill themselves when you invade their privacy for their most important secrets. >> i don't know if any amount of time's enough to make up for
7:33 am
what they've done. >> reporter: ravi and wei, both 18, have withdrawn from rutgers and are now facing up to five years in prison. but, prosecutors are still considering whether to upgrade the charges to bias, so-called hate crimes. ravi and wei were friends in high school before they both got to rutgers. both are out now, ravi on $25,000 bail. >> thank you, jeff. joining is our legal analyst jack ford. good morning. >> morning maggie. >> the attorney for the two students are making two points, number one they only viewed the video for a few seconds. does that matter snamplsts technically doesn't matter. time is not a specific element of these crimes. you know, the statute in new jersey has a couple different levels. the lowest level, fourth degree crime, first being the highest, fourth the lowest, says it is a crime for somebody to observe without another person's permission them in a situation where they may engage in sexual conduct or may expose intimate
7:34 am
parts. classic illustration, drill a hole in a wall into a bathroom or bedroom, all right. that right then and there when you start looking regardless of what happens in the room you have committed a fourth degree crime, the lowist. it goes up a notch if you capture an image in any fashion, a photo ca smdz in or webcam of someone engaging in sexual conduct or exposes intimate parts. so time really is not an element of these things. >> neither is, then, if they witness something sexual or not he, right? because the other point. >> that only has to do with the level, exactly. >> why rer they being so deliberate making that point. >> the point they are making has to do with the higher level crime, the third degree where you actually capture an image of someone being caught in sexual contact. >> so, they are just trying to lessen -- >> exactly. if they are observing, in a place you shouldn't be. >> what is the penalty fourth degree. >> fourth degree, 18 months maximum in jail. third degree five years maximum
7:35 am
in yale but the important thing is, if you are a first offendr oer, both of these are as we know first offenders there is a presumption in the law you are not going to go to jail some, other type of structuring. it is just a presumption. it can be overwhelmed by certain circumstances if a sentencing judge, if they ever get to that stage, if a sentencing judge has a reason to say that deal is off and i'm going to put you in jail for some period of i'm. >> is there anything you can see in this case that would lean the judge that direction. >> couple things. this would be an interesting issue. the fact you could argue, a prosecutor could argue the death happened because of all of these things. that's a bit of a tenuous link strictly legally speaking. i'm sure people looking at this are saying this has to have driven this poor young noon commit suicide, take his own life but legally if they are not charged with his murder, a prosecutor might say, judge, at the time of sintsing you can take into consideration what happened to this man afterwards. it would be an interesting legal issue but could allow a judge to

this this morning's health watch feeling stressed out. a recent survey found that nearly 30% of workers called in sick in the past year when they actually were not. the increase in bogus sick days may be linked to burn-out and stress caused by the weak economy. "early show" contributor dr. jennifer hartstein, psychologist, is here to help us handle the pressure looking whether looking for a job or -- >> currently in one. >> exactly. and afraid you are going to lose yours. good morning good. >> morning. >> what are the signs your stress levels are going out of
7:41 am
control. >> well, we want to start with simple things, there will be a mood change. you might start to feel more irritable, anxious, more depr s depress depressed. you want to take note of that and notice if you are feeling more tense in your muscles, in your body, are you getting headaches, clenching your teeth, things to take notice of. how about sleep problems when you have a hard time sleep wlg it's never been a problem before. leading to a sense of apathy, you start to just not care, you don't care about your job or anything. it could really end into that bigger problem of using drugs and alcohol excessively, potentially leading to a violent episode either at home with your kids or at the job. so it kind is on a thermometer, exactly. >> you look at that graphic, you're in the red zone. you have all that going on you are in the red zone. how do you avoid or keep from all of those things really starting to affect your life? >> it is really hard. you want to know them early. if you notice your mood is off, getting stressed in your body you want to reach out for help and talk to people. you want to check in and do
7:42 am
things that will be relaxing to you and that you enjoy to help balance out. the more positive stuff you can do, it does balance out the negative, even though it is really hard to put that into your schedule. >> i think that's a harder order -- i think it is easier said than done. >> it is always easier said than done t. doesn't make any less pont but more of a priority to make happen. >> what are the biggest mistakes then people in that total stress level that we, you know, put in the graphics there at the beginning of the segment, the biggest mistakes folks who are totally stressed out, what are the biggest mistakes? >> some of the things they do they totally dwell only focusing on their job or lack of job and get really stuff in that little bit of focus and don't see anything outside of that. they don't check in with themselves or their partner or friends on how they're doing, how they are feeling. they don't kind of have open communication, lastly as we just mentioned, they avoid kind of non-job activities. they feel they don't have the time for anything enjoyable or
7:43 am
fun. >> in the final analysis, what's the best thing you can do to alleviate stress? >> find things that bring you some enjoyment and relaxation to balance out the stress. >> all right. small as it is. >> as small as it is, it is so important. >> d. jennifer hartstein, thank you so much. >> thanks. >> up next some luck y "early show" viewers told bus their dream job wishes and we're going to tell you how we helped make that dreams come true. it's fun. this is "the early show" on cbs. >> announcer: cbs healthwatch sponsored by restasis, talk to your doctor about restasis cyclosporine opthalmic emulsion 0.05%

8:20 am
machine of the gas pump. what it does, when you swipe your debit card or credit card it skims the information, takes your information from you, and then steals money from your account. the important thing to do if you want to try and stay away from these and keep yourself less at risk is to, a, work in cash or, b, if you can't work in cash, use credit cards instead and, also, avoid using the non-bank atms. they are much more ad risk for this than the actual bank atms. >> it is so important. i don't use my debit card for any expense because if he they have that information they have your bank account. a credit card you can cancel or say don't charge me for this. >> much more likely if you get scammed on a credit card you will not be charged. out of your account it is heart to get it back. >> what is smishing. >> smishing is on the newer side. ul assisi a text on your cell phone, a mobile device and tell you to call a number that.

number when you call it will prompt for you account information and ask you for information about yourself, information about all of your bank accounts and they're posing, in many cases, as your bank. what you want to do is never, ever call these numbers. if you get a text or even if you get an e-mail telling you to call your bank, make sure that you actually call the customer service number on your card, on your bank statement. >> make sure it's legit. >> exactly. make sure it's legit. >> okay. sometimes when i'm shopping online things pop up asking me to join membership programs. what are those? i never know. >> in many cases after you've made a purchase you've already given out your credit card information all of a sudden an ad pops up and says join our club for a special discount or new product we are offering today for free in many cases. the reality is they are likely not free. they are trying to get you to jump into this membership program that is going to end up charging you lots and lots of money down the road. so, don sign up for these deals.
8:22 am
in many cases, they are scams and, instead, always read the fine print. make sure that anything you're making as far as purchases go online, you know what you're purchasing beforehand and you'll likely get an e-mail if you have made the purchase opt out if you feel uncomfortable with it. >> we should not assume all fraudulent charges on our cards will huge amounts, right. >> yes, because the scam artists are getting more and more sarve v, small, 10 to 20-cent charges and last year a group did this to the tune of $10 million scamming so many over the course of time the 10 to 20 cent charges on their card was turning out to be much bigger so watch for those. >> be vigilant. i get that takeaway. thank you. a problem some women have in their lives we'll hear why so many females are unhappy about their bodies and what they can do about it. you are watching "the early show" on cbs. ,,,,

8:34 am
schwarzenegger author of "rock what you've got" and plus-size model crystal renn. ladies, good morning to all of you. >> i want to talk first about the body image survey bla mour did. 70% of women feel they are too fat versus 46% actually overweight. what does that stat tell you about our society? >> there's a lot of body snarking going on right now, happening in the tabloids, on myspace, facebook pages really like there is a great weight watch happening in the country and it's very hard for women not to internalize that message. i think that's what stat reflects. >> when you look at these magazines, a lot of them show these skinny, unattainable bodies. no one knows that better than you, crystal. when you started out in your career, you were one of those perfect bodies, a size 0 and were actually told you were too heavy. you took a break from modeling and came back as a plus-size model and now they are criticizing you for being too thin as a plus-size model. what message is all that sending to you and to society. >> i think the most important
8:35 am
thing which i've discovered, you know, through this entire process, it's about finding you, your medium. you know, about being who you are. i think that, you know, i will never be thin enough or big enough for anybody. so i think through this whole thing i had to just really be happy being who i am, when i found health. i starved myself down to a 00 then in my recovery, got even up to a size 14 and i found that, you know, through the years, i settled at a 12 then in the past year, i really discovered exercise because i was finally able to do it. you know, after eight years, you know, i think i was ready after, you know, suffering with exercise bulimia seven years ago to finally do it again. >> in a healthy way. >> healthy way right. >> healthy what you have been, katherine, you come from a healthy family your father, of course, known for his body, "the terminator" former mr. universe, arnold schwarzenegger, your mom maria sh riv a successful
8:36 am
journalist so you grew up healthy and fit and tell us in your book you still had these body issue and tells us it is not only the outside but the inside. >> we as women we look in front of the mirror and automatically jump to everything we hate about ourselves, wish we could change, so overly critical of ourselves. i think that statistic really shows and i think women think if you look beautiful on the outside you are totally fine and have the most perfect life but i think the reality is you have to be beautiful both on the inside and out. that's what i talk a lot about in my book. >> you credit your mom getting you through the awkward times. >> yeah. >> what did your mom do for you i can go for my daughter when she inevitably has issues with her bodies. >> i think just being there. my mom was so amazing with me growing up and still is today, my best friend i talk to six times a day. i have such an honest and open relationship with her and she was always able to talk about
8:37 am
anything and allow me to ask questions where she doesn't have any judgment to me. she was just the most amazing mother. >> one thing i like one day when were you 10 years old she maetd you list you what like about yourself and what you don't like about yourself. alt first you say you couldn't find anything you like about yourself but at the end found plenty of things. >> yeah at the end of the list, it started and i said i had nothing i like about my body and moy mom kind of worked with me through it and i realized how i liked in my likes column and dislikes column and i think that shows again how critical we are of ourselves as women. i think it is an amazing exercise to do whenever you don't feel great about your body. >> i like that. something else i love your dad did in "glamour" magazine a picture famous of a plus-size model lizzie miller and shows her sitting down. when any woman sits down she has a little roll in her belly as she does here. tell me, wendy, about the reaction you've gotten though this photograph. >> the reaction has been astounding. we published this because we thought she looked great and
8:38 am
happy. we didn't think that much of it then the letters and e-mails and comments started pouring in and women were telling us they saw it, they cried, they felt like they finally had seen someone who looks just like them in the magazine. >> thank you so much for petting that in the magazine and all of you guys for being here today. appreciate it. now over to you, harry. >> announcer: this portion of "the early show" sponsored by v8. get three of your five vegetable servi servings today. v8 what's your number. >> herbs and spices add great flavors to recipes but scientists have proven they have have great health benefits to your diet. elley krooig is a registered dietitian, author of "so easy" to share her healthiest spi kredzests and is here to share. i'm not sure i know the difference between an herb and spice. >> this is the her being, the leafy part where spices generally the seed or
8:39 am
ground bark or root. generally herbs are the leaf, think about it like this. >> we have examples of spic sdedzs with healthful benefits in an old-fashioned use and maybe new fangeled way. >> xaengt. these are these warm fall spices, typically used in fall food but the power in aifnt oxidants is amazing, i think shocking when you learn about it. rosemary for example. >> smells so delicious. >> fresh and dried both have health benefits, either one. here is a traditional use like with chicken and vegetables, also, i like to put it, steep it in honey. >> right. >> and just put it over some oranges with some almonds and then you have a beautiful healthy dessert, getting so much antioxidant poump. rosemary has actually been shown to be cancer prevention, for example. >> really? this is a very such smart food because, not talking about all kinds of sugarss and all this other stuff. >> right. >> it smells so good. >> exactly. >> now cinnamon. >> cinnamon, also, this --
8:40 am
cinnamon, o on this table is king in antioxidant power, incredibly potent, has -- a teaspoon has more antioxidant power than a half cup of broccoli, for example. >> how about that, did you know that? nobody knew that. >> right. that's what i'm here for to tell you. >> put away the broccoli. >> you can use it in sweet things like desserts apple cobbler type of thing called an apple brown betty. i also use it in savory food. this stew with butter not squash, you put this in and suddenly get this wonderful like moran can flavor. cinnamon, it is shown to help lower and help control blood sugar. especially great for people with blood sugar issues. >> hypo glycemic, that kind of thing? >> who knew. we have thyme, a similar benefit, similar benefits to rosemary, high in antioxidant power. i make these great little
8:41 am
chicken pot pies typically used with chicken, very easy to use. >> like a fhyloo dough. >> makes it really nice. >> that's smart. >> thanks for noticing, harry. >> that's all right. >> i love to steep a bit in my water for tea. it adds so much. maybe you wouldn't ordinarily think to put fresh thyme in your tea but it is an easy thing to do and you'll get the antioxidant. >> with regular tea. >> i like it with chamomille for example. >> smells good. >> really lovely. >> what's this? >> curry powder. which is a mix of different spices and herbs but the more yellow it is actually the more potent because tomb rick makes it powerful and gives it the aints oxidant power, shown to an anti-inflammatory typically of course used in curry. i made this for "fine cooking" magazine, i have a whole spice story this month in the
8:42 am
magazine. also besides for that you can use it in every day. you don't have to use it on a big dish. no, not for you. >> scrambled eggs. you've got to try it. >> let's move to ginger. >> try. this you may use it in a taraki, that's another thing, put some in your hot cocoa. >> i like that. >> like chocolate shavings, as well. but you get this extra warm sort of zing and incredible potent antioxidant power of ginger, which is also good for your tummy, so. >> very good. >> you can have the gingerbread cookie, too. >> thank you very much. ellie krieger for these recipes and more. all you have to do is go to our website don't bite the head off the gingerbread cookie when you are about to finish a segment. erica? >> and don't talk with food in your mouth, irharry smith, even with a delicious cookie. >> i'm sorry. >> on the fast-track to success
