and welcome to the weekend. and for this holiday weekend we have quite a lineup with the smartest man in the world, a top chef, and the best band in america. that's right. comedian greg you may know him from "whose line is it any way" and one of the smartest men in the world. we're going to talk to him. >> plus mike mendelsohn has made a name for himself as a fan favorite on "top chef" and now as a hugely successful chef and owner of a res strunlt. you'll see why on "the dish." >> the band who is named the best rock band in america. the indy band wassy. yes, that's their name. the verdict aquisted mubarak of ordering the killing of than 900 anti-government protesters
three years ago. >> mubarak was convicted and sentenced to life in prisonen in 2012 but the verdict was overturned on appeal. alex ortiz is in cairo with the layest. alex good morning. >> reporter: good morning. well, this wasn't the outcome that egypt's young revolutionaries had been hoping for. the judge found mubarak and his top aides not guilty of corruption and on legal technicalities dismissed the most serious charge of presiding over the deaths of protesters in 2011. when the sentence was read out, the courtroom erupted into raucous cheers. meanwhile he's been taken back to the military hospital where he's been held for months. it's unclear if today's ruling means he'll be immediately release order serve time on a separate conviction. meanwhile egypt's prosecutor has announced he'll appeal the
state's verdict so it could drag on even further. it's stunningly dramatic how egypt has changed since 2011 when over 800 people died over protests against mubarak, deaths that until now no one has been held responsible for. >> thanks alex. new questions this morning about the future of baltimore ravens running back ray riechls rice has won his fight against the nfl to be reinstated. the league initially sus spenled him for two games for dragging his fiancee, now wife out of an elevator at a casino in new jersey. once the video leaked out showing the actual punch nfl commissioner roger goodell took rice off the field indefinitely. now an arbitrator has sided with rice. mark albert is in our washington bureau with more. good morning. >> good morning. rice is now free to sign with
any team and resume playing after missing an entire season so far. a former judge found the nfl could not punish ray rice twice for the same set of facts. u.s. judge barbara jones found public outrage over a leaked video was not enough to punish a truthful ray rice. quote, because rice did not mislead the commissioner and because there were no new facts on which they could -- >> kept the continuing initially ordered by the nfl. in a brief statement the nfl said we respect judge joan's decision. ray rice is a free agent and he will be eligible to play upon signing a new contract. the head of the players union told our james brown in september they would not shy
away. >> the union has the obligation to defend the rights of its members: on friday he said it's fair and he called for a neutral ash trader in all future cases. that would curtail roger goodell's power to decide cases by himself, a move the commissioner seemed to be willing to consider when he announced in september a comprehensive review of nfl policies. >> they should also continue the current schl for deterring violation including my role in the process. there will be changes to our personal conduct policy. i know this because we will make it happen. nothing is off the table. >> goodell pledged that review would be completed by the super bowl, which is feptbruary 1st. ray rice said, quote, i made an inecusable mistake and will
accept full sfonlt for my actions. i will continue working hard to improve myself and be the best husband, father and friend and give back to the community to help others learn from my mistakes. for more on this we're joined by geoff foster sports editor for "the wall street journal." good morning. >> good morning. >> we sort of consistently heard ray rice say he femts like he was pin ishd for the same event. did this ruling surprise you or was it expected? >> i thing it was expected. it was sort of double jeopardy. he did give a truthful depiction of what happened in the elevator and they would need to prove new information came from that video, which it didn't. so essentially the two-game suspension was wrong. it should have been more severe and to suspend him again because a video emerged wasn't fair. >> what exactly is rice's status now in the nfl?he's active. he could play sunday if a team wanted him. >> i would think it would be a
p.r. nightmare for any team. is there a chance he's been so tainted nobody would take him? >> you see in the nfl you do get a lot of chances. michael vick got another chant. stallworth got another chance. >> are there any teams that come to mind? >> there are a couple. i think the indianapolis colts makes sense. chuck pagano was with the ravens a while ago, he knows rice maybe he's a good clubhouse guy and maybe he can help. at the same time he hasn't been on the field in three months. who knows what kind of shape he's in. >> you don't think at this point his career is over. >> i think next year a team will certainly take a chance on him. >> you do. >> just because it's the nfl. a lot of players get multiple
chances. >> geoff foster, thanks for being with us this morning. tensions are running high in ferguson, missouri. more than a dozen people were arrested last night over protests during the grand jury decision not to indict the white police officer who killed teenager michael brown in august. there were all demonstrations in malls and in cities around the country as protesters disrupted black friday shopping. vladimir duthiers is in ferguson. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. protesters once again took to the streets right out here in front of the forget sochb police department and that followed several successful attempts to shut down stores on the busiest shopping day of the year. about 200 chanting proi testers demanding justice for michael brown marched past surprised shoppers in a st. louis mall friday. >> if justice is not done we can't shop in peace. if justice is not done we can't live in peace. they were out here to disrupt
black friday. >> do you plan to shut malls and stores down? >> absolutely. >> security had to briefly keep shoppers from entering the mall but stores never had to close. protests stretched from coast to coast. in new york hundreds rallied in times square. in chicago dozens denounced police brutality. and in oakland, a handful of activists disrupted commuter train traffic. one town hit by violence was reopened friday. the mayor reggie jones says the town needs federal and state aid in order to reburn. >> we had 20 businesses that were burned five that were looted, just to give you an idea of the impact. the amount of businesses burned and destroyed represents over 10% of dell woods business district. >> i didn't even get a call from the city. >> reporter: denise andrews is among those asking for help.
she lost her life savings when her antique store was burned to the ground. >> it's heartbreaking, so it's bittersweet. my dreams weren't taken away just these things. >> so you're not angry. >> no, not angry. i just want to say to the young people who did this would you please take your hurt and pain and put it in a positive place in memory of mike brown. >> reporter: now there's been some problem. the scene of some of the worst air areas is reopened. retailers are expecting the to be more active. americans will have an extra $40 billion to spend this weekend and that's due to falling gas prices. jericka duncan is here, good morning, jericka. >> good morning, vinita. the excitement and the fight to
get the best deals continues across the country and online. stores started their black friday sales earlier atlanta ever on thanksgiving day. >> we don't even go to sleep. we came out at 10:00 and haven't been to bed yet. >> reporter: as retailers are working on the busiest shopping day of the year. >> i'm going great. >> reporter: electronics were great draw. at this walmart they wrestled for tvs. >> most retailers are fighting for market share and it's a pretty ugly fight and they're doing it by discounting and by opening up sooner. >> reporter: electronics giant best buy slashed prices to compete. 13-inch mack book pro laptops are $899 dow from 1,099.
iphones are selling for $99 instead of $199. last year sales grew 0.9%. >> they're outpacing the brick and mortars. putting it the other way they're getting share every month the number is released or every quarter when e-commerce sales is released. >> reporter: whether they stand in line or go online shoppers are expected to spend $17 billion this holiday season and some retail analysts report that december 20th known as super saturday could be another big day. more people could hit that store on that day than people who shop on black friday. anthony? >> thanks jericka. with more on the forecast this weekend we're joined by vera gibbons. >> good morning. >> how did black friday go for the retailers?
>> it looks pretty good. as you know the early indicators is not necessarily indicative of how things are going to turn out. this could be the first time since 2011. the ten-year historical average, 2.9. >> i don't know why they call it black friday. it starts on thanksgiving. let's talk about last year because in 2013 i remember there was so much talk about weather and potential for the government shutdown. how do we fair versus that? >> right. i think people are feeling better about the economy in general, job situation, stock markets, gas prices are nice and low, under $3 the lowest in three or four years. that puts more money in our pockets. not to say you're going to blow it. you want to have a budget. you want to do a comparison shopping with deal hunter. compare all the deals. you've got to do this because there's so much out there, but a deal is a deal but not a deal if
it's a bad product. review consumer reviews. >> do your homework as your mother used to say. you talk about gas prices which are probably going to keep going lower. monday is cybermond and that's when you stay home and you don't go out supposedly and buy online. how is that going? >> this is a day when you see if storewide discounts, take 30%, 40% off everything. you see some carryover deals and new as well. >> will cyber monday start on sunday? >> yes. that's a good point. really it is cyber sunday. that's when you want to start your shopping if you want to nab those limited shopping items. a limited number say they actually plan to start their shopping on sunday and the deals sort of expend right on into tuesday. so really it's a three-day extravaganza. retailers will come up with fresh new deals. >> weird.
even though i don't take part it's weirdly nervous. it's all happening. >> i know. all the people and deals. >> buy. >> buy, buy, buy. >> thanks so much. >> thanks. all right. arctic air will move into the northern rockies and northern plains today bringing a big drop in temperatures. in new hampshire more than 40,000 are without power. for more on the weekend weather across the country with we go to meteorologist ed curran of our cbs station, nnbc. good morning. >> good morning. as the cold air starts to come in, we see snow we see rain in the pacific northwest and also in northern california. take a look at what's going on here. we have snow at the hire elevations, rain streaming in and we have some snow advisories and warnings that are up for those areas. now, what's going to happen is a lot of the country will see a real warmup today, a push of warm air that brings temperatures to 65 in denver 63 in kansas city and 63 degrees
in st. louis, 71 degrees for little rock but as this warm air continues moving to the east colder air drops in from the north and continues dropping into the country, lowering the temperatures. sunday afternoon into monday. and anything that melts because of the warm temps is going to freeze up. so watch for some icy conditions as we head into monday. cyber monday will feel a little bit like siberia, i think, with 9 degrees for fargo and 7 degrees for minneapolis, 22 for chicago. so first a warmup today and then a real drop in temps as we head to the end of the weekend and monday watch for icing out there. anthony? >> ooh, i'm sorry for minneapolis. egg curran of our chicago station wbbm. thanks, ed. pope francis returns to turkey. a muslim nation that has been at a crossroads for religious faith and sometimes a conflict for the millenia.
this is a rare visit. francis is only the fourth pope to make the trip. allen pizzey is traveling with him and has the latest from istanbul. >> reporter: francis was visited at the istanbul airport. they feel increasingly under pressure in a country that is 98% muslim. the first event of the day, a visit to the famous blue mosque served to undercut some of the pressure the pope is feeling from his host who they're seeing as a growing phobia. the theme of the trip is religious freedom. the pope defined it as an eloquent sign of peace. up to was the 1,500-year-old church which was a museum and
then a mosque. francis made no such mistake. by and large the pope's visit has made little interest. the lack of crowds is why he's not been traveling in his preferred popemobile. being that he's been declaring publicly about fighting in the states. security detail is no doubt relieved. it is time now to show you some of this morning'shead lines. "the wall street journal" says two of the nation's largest mortgage lenders will start on monday. freddie mac and fannie mae will relax standards. >> the "sydney morning herald" says the australian police have

"usa today" reports mickey rourke has still got game. the 62-year-old actor caught many by surprise when he decided to turn to the ring. he certainly turned elliott seymour by surprise. >> he was 1-9. so it wasn't exactly muhammad ali he was going up against. >> still, 62 against 33. >> yeah t
coming up, it is the world's singet largest water project. this $80 billion solution to the water crisis isn't just costing money. and later, a responsible vacation -- sounds like an oxymoron -- but that's exactly what the creators of sustainable travel are selling. we'll look at that with travel editor peter greenberg. you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday."

tree has arrived at 1600 pennsylvania avenue. a horse drawn wagon hauled the 20-foot white fir up the driveway for inspection friday morning. >> first lady michelle obama, daughters and the family dog circled and approved it. it will be displayed in the blue room. it's that time of year. everyone is decorating. in china, they have the biggest water diversion project. >> next month they'll turn on the tachlt the tap. seth doane went to the source of the problem. >> reporter: this was once the river. it ran dry along with 27,000 other rivers in china.
this environmentalist says they're facing a water crisis. >> some of the cities in the large china plain are suffering from a severe water shortage. >> reporter: to try to solve the problem, china's government is planning to spend nearly $80 billion to build around 2,700 miles of waterways almost enough to stretch from new york to los angeles. four-fifth of china's water lies in the south and the idea is to move some of that water to the parched and popular north by connecting existing water. that's relocate 3g 50,000 people to settlements like this one. did you want to come to this place? >> it does not matter whether
you're willing to move or not. the government told us we'd have to move. if we didn't our home would be under water. she used to sell jade. now she scrapes by selling whatever she can from this small shop in her relocation village dubbed harmony by the local government. so you live just right above the shop here. >> she shows us her new home but she misses her old one. still she says her suffering is worth it for more people to have water. >> are you really being serious or is that just the right thing to say to me? as a chinese citizen we ought to all be like this she says. we can survive anywhere. back in beijing majun feels it's a short-term emergency measure. >> it will help to buy some time. i wouldn't call it a final solution because the current

2 weeks and older whose flu symptoms started within the last two days. before taking tamiflu tell your doctor if you're pregnant, nursing, have serious health conditions, or take other medicines. if you develop an allergic reaction, a severe rash, or signs of unusual behavior, stop taking tamiflu and call your doctor immediately. children and adolescents in particular may be at an increased risk of seizures confusion or abnormal behavior. the most common side effects are mild to moderate nausea and vomiting. so don't wait. attack the flu virus at its source. ask your doctor about tamiflu. prescription for flu. yoplait light is now better than ever. it still melts in your mouth. with 90 calories. and is now aspartame free. yoplait light. it is so good; it's better than ever.

rounds" with cbs news chief medical correspondent dr. jon lapook and contributor dr. holly phillips. this week we're looking back at the top medical stories of the year. >> 2014 brought about changes of the way doctors look at routine exams for men and women. recommended that women not have routine pelvic exams. even though elderly men and women continue to be checked for others. those procedures are unlikely to benefit them. so, jon, why do these rules keep changing? >> i know when we do a story about changing guidelines people want to take a brick and throw it through the television set, but do not do that. there is a reason there is a rb for the change in guidelines. there's no question that doing screening helps save lives for all of these different
categories. last month i did a screening colonoscopy on somebody in their earl 50s who had a polyp just about to turn into cancer. we took it out. that's where the emotion comes in because people say you've got do all these on everybody all the time. the question is how do you interpret it because there are a lot of people who get positive results, so-called, abnormal screening tests and the question is what do you do with this. i think perfect example is prostate cancer. we do this psa test. it turns out that in somebody's lifetime 15% of men will get prostate cancer in their lifetime but only 3% men of all time die from prostate cancer. so most of the people who end up having it don't die from it and the real problem and this is where the research is figuring out when you get these abnormal tests, what do you do next. >> holly, recommendations for pap tests, mammography and
pelvic tests. >> i hope that they can be beneficial in some way by just opening up more of a discussion more of a dialogue around individualized screening. one thing we know for sure is screening does work best when it's individualized against a person's belief system, their underlying health risks, their family history and the way that they live. that's when you can really decide whether the screening test is good or bad for a person. women and anyone getting screening, they need to know what they're getting out of the screening and what they might not get. breakthrough research found that your belly might be upsetting your brain. a changing bacteria in our intestines could alter our mood and behavior. this research could transform the way we understand and treat a variety of mental health issues. holly, what is the connection? >> you know, this is an amazing, exploding area of research. so in medicine we've long called
our gut, we call it our second grain and that's because the intestine has millions of neurons and many of these neurons make a neurotransmitter called serotonin, and serotonin affects our moon. access works, you know if you're upset emotionally. if your mind is upset, you feel it in your gut. you might feel butterflies, nausea, upset stomach. we're now learning it works the other way as well. if your gut is upset, say the bacterial imbalance is wrong, you may very well feel it in your brain. it may affect your mood and put you at risk for other illnesses. in 1964 the jirn general released first report linking smoking to cancer. estimated sales have hit $2.5 billion and there are now 250 brands on the market cigarette smoking is down in the u.s. but vaporized nicotine use doubles from 2012 to 2013.
in fact, one in five adults have tried. in june senators asked if manufacturers a flavored vaporized nick teen focused children. we know at this point it's not regulated by the fda but what do we know about the long-term problem? >> we don't know a lot. that's the great concern. the fda has shown a small study showing the chemicals may be cars know jencar i know genic. we know it can have effects on the young population to which this is being marketed. what happens over the long term, that's something that the fda has a lot of concerns about. i think you're going to see the fda get control here and get some authority to control it. >> holly, jon mentioned the fact that these cigarettes are being aggressively marketed to kids young adults. how easy is it for kids to get cigarettes? >> incredibly easy.
there are only 36 states that restrict the sales to kids under 18. that leaves 14 where kids can walk right into the store and buy it. but also a huge portion of e-cigarette sales happens over the internet which is also very easy for kids to access. and advertising is always about kids. you know it's gone up 300% targeting kids between, you know, the ages of 18 and 24 in just two years. and you know there's these flavors like bubble gum and cotton candy and things that appeal to younger people. so there needs to be some sort of focus on cutting this down in kids. >> reporter: in october we learned about brittany maynard, a 29-year-old newly wed with stage 4 brain cancer. she moved to oregon where doctors are allowed to help patients end their lives. maynard's decision launched a nationwide campaign supporting so-called death with dignity. on november 2nd she took a deadly dose of prescribed drugs.
a worldwide discussion continues about aid in dying. holly, there are currently only five states where aid in dying is legal. so what kind of options do people have? >> you know arguably they don't have enough options, and i think this is one failing of our medical system right now. there are medications and procedures that can help parents at the end of their life with pain or with some symptoms for the terminally ill, but for many people they don't feel that those options leave their dignity or even their belief systems intact. so i think brittany maynard's situation really sparked a much much needed and much overdue discussion about how we handle the end of life. well, the ebola outbreak is one of the year's most widely covered medical story. the world health organization says over 14,000 cases have been reported in west africa. and this is really to both of you guys. what can we learn from an epidemic like this? >> to me this was a clear reminder we live in a global
community. we might think this is incredibly far away a part of the world that we never visit is actually our backyard and to control it there has to be a worldwide unified response. i really think to me that was the biggest take-home in learning about this epidemic. >> also there was criticism about the way it happened in dallas. you know something? it could have happened anywhere. it was the first time we learned about it in the united states. i think we learned we have to be better prepared figuring out the protocols, figuring out if they're correct and practicing those. and also i would say this. it happens every time there's some sort of an outbreak whether it's sars mers n 1 h 1, you name it. bird flu. we cut our research. when something like ebola comes along, where is the vaccine, where is the treatment, where's the funding? >> right. >> if the funding had been there, the research to do it had been there all along and the
will to do it right along, there would have been a fantastic tool. >> fascinating research. thank you both. up next environmental-friendly vacations are more than just camping in the woods. we'll show you some travel locations that go above eco-sustainability. travel editor peter greenberg is up next. you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday."

they're green. these are the places resorts and destinations that go above and beyond. >> i know anthony is going to be excited to see a ritz-carlton. i'm just teasing him. the first one on your list is a ritz-carlton. it's in north carolina. >> it's in charlotte, north carolina. to find out what they've done here you've got to go up to the roof. they've planted 18,000 plants that provides insulation captures rainwater. they save 35% of their water use. that's 700 gallons a year. they have a bike rack. >> i like that. next we head to young ville california, in the beautiful napa valley where we find the beautiful barestona hotel? >> yes. lots of glass. it gives you light, insulation you're not expecting and motion sensors handle the actual air conditioning and solar power in this hotel provides one half of the energy that's used here.
it's pretty cool. >> i love that idea of that much list. the next is in las vegas, nevada and this is the palato. >> they have the largest green building in the world. it's unbelievable. what they've done here was solar power to heat the pool all sorts of water conversation which in las vegas is extreme, which is drought. they save enough water there to provide each citizen of nevada with 266 glasses of water a year and enough energy to light bullens for 12,000. so it's pretty amazing stuff, especially in a city like las vegas. >> they do things ss big in las vegas. next is in syracuse new york. they provide heating from wells. it really really works. what's good about this is they've been able to do it at cost. they're actually saving money and saving the environmental.
