7:03 am
welcome to "cbs this morning." charlie rose is on assignment so vladimir duthiers is with us. good to have you here. >> good to be here. >> the impact shattered the plane and sent wreckage over a huge area of the french alps all 150 people aboard are believed dead. >> officials say they cannot rule out anything but it's very unlikely that terrorists brought down this jet. it was flying from barcelona, spain, to dusseldorf germany mark fill lipps is near the crash site in the french town of seyne-les-alpes. mark, good morning. >> reporter: if there can be a situation like this, the prae dikted weather, snow and rain that has happened today has held off and the emergency crews as you can hear and see are flying to and from the crash site. also the flight box recorder
7:04 am
has been recovered. but there's bad news too. the retrieval of victims won't be easy. the plane came down in the most inhospitable area imaginable. wreckage and strewn pieces down the deep mountainside. and as for the victims, of course, there are bodies, says the chief doctor of the local fire department, but identifying them will be hard. you see the state of the plane he said. so i'll let you imagine the state of the bodies. because of the force of the impact and the 60-degree slope the plane slammed into the wreckage has settled over a ten-acre area, and that's unstable alpine shale. it will take days to retrieve what's left of the victims. and on top of the grief there's the mystery of why this happened. the plane's cockpit voice recorder has been retrieved but it's damaged. investigators are trying to access its comments as for why this crash happened.
7:05 am
the plane which had climbed to its 38,000 feet cruising altitude after it left barcelona only staysed there for onement before beginning a deep descent. no call no distress call. air traffic control lost contact at 6,000 feet. unknown whether the passengers or crew were conscious during that time. a make shift morgue has been set up in this town for the emergency operation. it's about eight or so miles from the actual crash site. the prospect now is of getting mangled remains of the victims here. relatives of those victims are also expected. the identification of the victims, of course, will be a very gruesome job indeed and the only way in or out is by air. it will take days to clear the site. vlad? >> mark phillips in france thanks. what could have kept the
7:06 am
pilots from making a distress call. we spoke with captain sully sullenberger. >> one is they were so deeply engaged possibly trying to solve many problems simultaneously that they didn't have time to do things down there. and the other may be they were simply unable to communicate. this seemed to be a more controlled descent. i i can tell you that airlines pilots are trained to deal with a lot of reasons. one might be cabin depressure depressurization depressurization, electrical failures. we don't yet know what the first link in this causal chain of events was that started this crisis. >> captain sullenberger has a great deal of experience with the airbus a320. he famously landed one in the hudson river three years ago saving everyone on board. two are remembering the
7:07 am
victims. barcelona is the city where the flight yoreoriginated. the other is in germany. holly williams is outside dusseldorf which suffered a terrible loss of life. holly, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the crash is a national crisis here in germany. 18 of them came from this high school here in this small town of haltern. they were flying home to their families after a class trip to spain. there are no classes in the high school in haltern, just grief counseling. 16 of the dead were students here along with their teachers. when we first heard the plane had crashed, we hoped our students had missed the flight said the school principal at a
7:08 am
press conference this morning. spelled out in german a makeshift memorial simply asks the question why. the church bells tolled yesterday for haltern's lost sons and daughters in a town of just 35,000 people. nearly everyone knew somebody who isn't coming home. familyies gathered having heard the worst news possible. our thoughts and prayers are with those who lost their lives, said the german chancellor angela merkel who's visiting the crash site today but here in haltern, the grief is more personal. >> i can't believe it. very shocking situation. >> the town's mayor was told two
7:09 am
of those who died were family friends. like everyone else here he's stunned and deeply shaken. >> we've got enough people to take care of the pupils and speak with them and with the parents also if they want. >> we spoke to one of the students here just now. he said they held a special assembly today to mourn their friends. he told us some students were crying but others seemed to be in a state of shock because they still can't believe what's happened. gayle? >> nobody can. thank you, holly williams in haltern, germany. a little later we'll talk with peter greenberg about the black box discovery and everything involved in the crash. we'll dive deeper ahead on "cbs this morning." just in this half hour, two of the biggest brands in the supermarket i'll have formed the
7:10 am
hugest merger ever. craft and heinz will merge. the deal is worth $40 billion. cbs news analyst jill schlesinger says it may affect the way we shop and eat. this is huge. when you think of it. oscar mayer, philadelphia heinz, kraft, all in one company. >> they're american iconic brands, which is very interesting. we've got cracker bare el oscar myer, jell lowe all of these in one place. again, a 40$40 billion deal. they combined. at tend. 49% kraft, 51% heinz. >> i want to know why private equity is so interested. >> they love this. they consider it a bloated
7:11 am
industry that has not kept up with the times. look at specifically kraft has had a lot of problem as tastes have changed, consumers shifting to healthier kinds of food. they're going say let's take a look inside take and remove every possible expense, clean this company up run it more efficiently and run it for our shareholders. >> why did they merge? are they not doing well? >> no it's not doing well but there are so many great efficiencies merging companies already pretty much in the same business. think think is great deal for shareholders of kraft, by the way. >> how about the customers? >> i don't know that they're going to know the difference. the shareholders will not only get stocks but a special dividend. kraft up 16% in the market. again, i don't think you're going to find a difference from a consumer perspective. they may begin to skinny up some of these brands if they don't like the way they're run.

7:16 am
received is an anonymous e-mail. it reads in part were both extremely intoxicated and that uniformed division officers were going to arrest both of them but the commander said not to. >> the fact that i did not learn about this allegation until five days it is said to have occurred infuriates me. i am resolved to holding people accountable for their actions. >> a lot of people got this e-mail. a lot of them got it. but you didn't. that is a problem. >> reporter: clancey took a lot of heat for not addressing the two agents. they beerch suspended pending the outcome of the investigation. they want to know how come he didn't happen. >> he told them the law requires that any problem be referred to the inspector general of homeland security. >> thanks. this morning a new study

7:32 am
7:33 am
but they don think it's that important. pilots are trained to control the plane first and try to communicate. they may not have had time to communicate. >> one other question is the eight-minute descent. normally you hear if the plane
7:34 am
had gone in distress, it would have gone out of its route. but it was on route. >> were the pilots in control or the plane actually in control with its own computers? when the plane got up to 38,000 feef, it was only up there for a minute. they're looking now at the flight data recorder. once they look at it it's going to tell them everything about icing, wind, temperature, performance, and with there speed sensors and were there angle-of-attack sensors meaning the actual pitch of the plane frozen and did not give a false reading to the computer to tell the plane it was going to staal. now the pilots are actually fighting the computer and that's what causes that controlled descent. >> that worried me that eight-minute descent. i keep thinking of the passengers and the terror they may have been going through. >> why? >> it's a controlled descent
7:35 am
about 400 feet a second which is not catastrophic. >> you would feel you're going down. >> yes, but they would not know the reason why. the bottom line is the speed stayed the same, but once you get below that 3,000 feet 400 knots is lethal. that's why you see the debris field. the plane hit at 400 knots. >> is it a surprise there was no mayday called? eight minutes seems like a long time. >> it does. but going back to the old john wayne movie, oh my god, i have time to say good-bye to my wife no it doesn't work at all. very rarely do you hear that. >> what will investigators be looking for. >> >> it's the flight data recorder. it gives you at least 15 didn't parameters. they're going to look at engine performance. were the engines surging or seizing intermittently. >> the voice recording that the
7:36 am
pilots made that would not tell you the story. >> oh it's more than the voices. it's everything in the cockpit. you'd hear it in realtime. so once they get both recorders, they'll actual will do a real-time analysis second by second to match up what they hear in the cockpit. >> peter greenberg thanks so much. >> you've about got it. for the fourth time an italian court will determine the fate of amanda knox. they'll decide whether to uphold the seattle woman's murder conviction. it could spark a fierce extradition fight. correspondent peter van sant has covered this story from the beginning. good morning. >> good morning. amanda knox's italian attorney says amanda is worried and has had a sleepless night. a close friend said she is having a very hard time as she await as decision from italy's supreme court in a case that never seems to end. the absence of amanda knox

kissing outside the courtroom. they were acquitted on appeal in 2011. amanda knox has been found not guilty in the murder of meredith kirchner. >> knox returns to her hometown of seattle a free woman. >> thank you to everyone. >> reporter: last january italy's highest appeal court found the pair guilty again. if the court decides to uphold its conviction, they could ask the u.s. to extradite knox from seattle. >> if the italians make an extradition request, they're setting up a diplomatic showdown. >> reporter: knox who is working as a freelance writer said she will never return to italy, at least not willingly. >> they'll have to catch me kicking and screaming into a prison i don't deserve to be in.

8:33 am
conversation, and then you and each recall it so very differently. when i know that i was right. women everywhere are having this conversation today. >> why. >> why do we remember it so differently, that's the question. >> what are we trying to get out of an argument is the question and i think for men, many men are cult rated to win and women are cult rated to take care of the relationship and be heard. they're not out to win it necessarily. maybe they're out to be heard and to be understood. >> could they be lying? >> no. i really think in the moment of an argument or relationship event -- >> i do like that. >> -- i do think the intent is to get to some sort of agreement and understanding. i don't think people are lying on purpose. >> i think it was interesting to talk about the reliance of mood and purpose. if it's negative it's more likely to be something you remember. >> right. because it has an intensity to
8:34 am
it. it's marker in your awareness. i have a lot of couples who talk about sort of lines in the sand of their relationship, and they do recall it differently. but it had a lot of emotion -- high emotion and sometimes sadness or anger about it. >> now, the other interesting thing about the study, it remembers who remembered more accurately. what does the study find? women tend to remember more accurately. why do you think that's true? >> i think women are the caretakers of the relationship or they're cult rated to be so and so they're really intend on making sure that things go well and that they remember it. i think men tend to remember in bullet points. >> so what can people do to find common ground since clearly i can't remember where i met my girlfriend. so what can i do to change that out? >> one of the things i ask couples to do is instead of thinking of themselves on opposite sides of a table to really think of themselves on
8:35 am
the same side and their team. and i ask people, you know do you want to be right or you do want to be in relationship or do you -- >> or do you want to be right or be at peace. studies show men tend to win the arguments more by almost 3:1. why do you think that is? do you think that's a real figure or women tent to compromise and say, never mind. >> it's an old study. i wonder what it would be like today. i do think the idea of winning, i think, from a very early age, men are told, you know win at all costs and they're also taught to keep their emotions many emotions at bay. so i think women are not really in it to win it. i think they're in it to be heard and to be in relationship. >> vlad, to your question, i thought one of the interesting things is focus on one of the positive things you remember. one is called collaborative memories so create positive
8:36 am
shared memories you can draw upon and that's hall mark of a good relationship. >> the first thing i ask a couple coming into my office on something a's going to be challenging, tell me about your courtship days, tell me how you met, how you fell in love. i want them to feel like a team. we're going to be here as a team together and we're going to feel loving and connected before we launch into some difficult stuff. >> that is good. you must be a very good therapist. >> thank you so much. for generations a milestone has meant a driver's license. some kids are gaining independence, even younger. jan crawford is in washington with a trend favored by parents and their kids. >> reporter: for a lot of working families families are just trying to hold it together the best we can. when you throw in those long commutes these days for your

8:39 am
up number one, and i don't think anyone's ever asked you your age. >> uber's brand and lyft's brand have hem roijed very rapidly and have taken on the sheen of -- you know, this is a big company, i can trust this company. >> reporter: this business professor said it's one of the top examples of today's new sharing economy that still comes with risks. >> until we understand what exactly the risks associated with this are and that can only come with time i would be cautious about you know engaging in behaviors like sending kids alone in an uber or lyft. >> reporter: uber conducted back dwround checks but clearly states it has. >> liability if something goes wrong. that's between you and your driver. that's led to more kids using transportation services, offering increased security and rides for younger children.
