8:00 am
good morning, everyone. i'm jeff glor. >> i'm rebecca jarvis. these are a few of the stories we'll be bringing on you "cbs this morning: saturday." countdown to zero at cape ka nall nav ral but the rocket never left the launch pad. chen guangcheng has left china, on his way to u.s. after creating a diplomatic crisis for two countries. after weeks of hype facebook's stock fell flat on its first day of trading. the social networking site closed just 23 cents above its offering price. first graders in ohio are
8:01 am
learning to read write and tweet. should they learn to make friends on the playground before they meet online? captioning funded by cbs that music doesn't get you going, not sure what would. >> happy saturday everybody. we begin with this morning's failed attempt to launch the first private spacecraft to the international space station. it happened before dawn at cape canaveral in florida as the countdown reached zero. >> three, two, one, zero and lift-off. we've had a cutoff. lift-off did not occur. >> even the announcer was surprised. the falcon 9 rocket by spacex never got off the pad. it's a setback for nasa's plan to have private companies take over much of what's been an
8:02 am
exclusively government enterprise. joining us from the kennedy space center is cbs news space consultant bill harwood. good morning, bill. >> reporter: good morning. >> how many people there are saying this morning, you get what you pay for? >> reporter: well, you know, that occurs to people whenever they think about this commercial endeavor but that's not the case here. i think they accurately stated this this morning. the mistake had been if they launched with an engine problem. they didn't. the software caught the problem before takeoff. they aborted and they'll fix it and try again. in that sense it all worked as it's supposed to. rockets are complicated things. we always joke about things that are rocket science. in this case it really is. they'll get it right and make another try at it. >> that's a good point. their next try comes on tuesday, as i understand it. what are the chances they solve this problem by then? >> reporter: well, they don't really know what caused it. they got down to 0.5 second before the clamp released the rocket to go. one of the nine engines in the first stage, the center engine. a high pressure in its
8:03 am
combustion engine and that triggered the abort. it's not clear if they have to make a repair or even replace the engine. they think they can make repairs in time for a tuesday launch attempt. right now, they have to get in there and take a look to figure out what exactly went wrong. >> when nasa started this program, they ran into problems as well. how many more tries does spacex get before someone says, enough is enough? >> reporter: oh i think they'll get as many tries as they want. nasa spent about $400 million on the test program. an earlier flight in 2010 and to get to this point. spacex has a $1.6 billion contract to send 12 of these capsules up to the space station to keep it supplied. when nasa retired the space shuttle, they lost the ability to carry up tons of supplies and equipment the station needs to operate. they need the spacex capsule to work. there's also another company, orbital sciences is building a
8:04 am
cargo ship as well. nasa is funding two different programs here to make sure they can get supplies to the station. i think spacex will get all the time they need. these kind of problems happen from time to time with rockets. i'm pretty sure they'll resolve this one. >> you bring up an interesting point because spacex will be fulfilling a need for cargo at the station that foreign companies could also fill and have been fulfilling. how much longer is it before they need more supplies there and then would have to call in a foreign source again to do this? >> reporter: well right now there's russian progress supply ships, european agency has a hip and so does the japanese agency. the very last space shuttle mission nasa launched last year they left the station with really -- they're flush with supplies and equipment. there's not an immediate need to get these commercial ships up and running. i think if they didn't have it happening by the end of the year, they'll are to think of alternatives. they have months and months to
8:05 am
get this program up and running before they would run into a crunch on the supply supplywise. days, if it fails, goes back to the drawing board every three days, they'll have a number of options before then. bill harwood, thanks much. great reporting. we move to the case of chen guangcheng. he is bound for the u.s. this morning. he spent years in house arrest in beijing, escaped to the u.s. embassy and later asked to be allowed to come to america and now it looks like that is indeed happening. sky news correspondent holly williams is in beijing. good morning to you. what's the latest? >> reporter: chen guangcheng his wife and two children left china a few hours after they were notified they would be allowed to leave. i spoke to mr. chen by telephone as he was awaiting to board his flight. he said they were informed by the staff at the beijing hospital where he had been getting treatment for the last couple of weeks. when he and his family arrived
8:06 am
at beijing airport, they were given their long-awaited passport by u.s. diplomats. that this means is that mr. chen is now free to start a new life, studying more in new york city. >> holly, you said you spoke to him. what else did he say? was he concerned about family members who are still going to be staying in china? >> reporter: well, to quote him directly, mr. chen said that he was filled with thousands of mixed emotions that he just couldn't express. he told me that he is very worried about the family members that he's leaving behind. we understand that some of them are under house detention and that one of them has been arrested. he also reiterated something he has said time and time again. he said he is not seeking political asylum. he doesn't plan on staying in the u.s. in the long term and that he hopes that one day he will be allowed to return to china. >> any indication how long he does stay here?
8:07 am
>> reporter: i think that's an interesting question. and it's going to come down to whether the chinese authorities are tolerant enough to allow a political dissident, who has embarrassed and angered them to come back to china. >> holly williams of sky news, thank you so much. and after all the hype and frenzy and great expectations facebook's first day of trading fell flat. its stock opened at $38 a share, shot up briefly, then it fell and finished just 23 cents higher. still the most valuable u.s. company to go public. many of its employees became instant millionaires as a result of the ipo. elaine quijano is outside nasdaq in times square. good morning. >> reporter: on opening day, 570 million shares of facebook traded hands. one of the busiest days ever for an initial public offering but for investors hoping to see a big price jump to make quick cash, that didn't happen.
8:08 am
for all the hype surrounding its debut. >> you get in on the ground floor like apple. >> reporter: facebook ended at $38.23, just 0.6% above where it began. its launch onto the nasdaq got off to a rocky start friday after technical glitches caused a 30-minute delay. shares began trading at just over $42 and reached a peak of $45. but that didn't last long. >> there's been a lot of shares traded. >> reporter: analyst nick of renaissance capital wasn't surprised by the volatility. he says facebook's ipo lured inestors big and small. >> certainly a lot of retail investors are buying facebook. it appealed to them because it's a company they know well. also i think a lot of big institutional investors will look at it as a core tech holding. >> reporter: as the hours passed the stock never fell below the initial public offering price of $38 a share.
8:09 am
that's because underwriters include morgan stanley, put in buy orders to prop up the price. the question now, what's next for the company and the people who bought into it? >> investors will be bullish on the company. we'll be looking at three, four five years out and trying to figure out what the company can become. >> reporter: now, some analysts say what happened yesterday should not be viewed as a failure. they say another way to look at it is that that ipo price set by facebook and the investment bank was just right. some perspective here. facebook now has a market value of some $105 billion. that's more than amazon and mcdonald's. rebecca? >> staggering numbers. elaine quijano in times square, thanks. joining us now with more about facebook is tech journalist david kirkpatrick, the author of "the facebook effect". good morning to you. >> thanks for having me. >> what's the reaction inside facebook today? they have to be happy.
8:10 am
they got paid at the top of the range but there's some trepidation about this falling flat. >> some did party last night, no question n a big way. for them it was a huge win. they achieved what they wanted to achieve, which was raise an awful lot of money to give liquidity to early investors and employees. as mark said right after the nasdaq bell rang he said let's get back to work. i can't wait to see what you're going to invent next.- that's the mindset at the company. a lot of people were posting on their facebook page on their status update they were putting the figure 1%. that's all they put. ma they meant by that we're only 1% of the way there. it's a way of saying we're just getting started. >> i thought they were saying we're part of the 1% now. >> well they certainly are part of the 1% as well but they didn't know it. >> here's the thing, they can say that but clearly growth for them in the future -- that's very good. >> that was really good. >> clearly, the growth for them in the future is going to look very different. they can say they're only 1% of the way there, but more than 50% of the people in this country
8:11 am
are on facebook. >> they don't think of it that way. 7 billion people on the planet. that's what they see. >> how many on facebook right now? >> 900 million. mark really believes he can get to the majority of the planet. in fact, if you look at the growth they've been experiencing in the last couple of years, it's been in indonesia brazil, south africa you know nigeria, these are the places they are targeting. the reality is those markets generally are not very lucrative, not a big internet advertising market in those countries. the point, they have a long-term view. that's where the disjump occurs. wall street has a really short-term view. it's an odd thing for a company with such a big picture, social mission as facebook, to kind of butt up against the very short-term money-oriented mindset of wall street. >> they can afford to have that long-term view because there may be individual shareholders but zuckerberg still controls the company. >> 57% of the voting power. i think it's a good thing sdmru think it's a good thing?
8:12 am
>> yeah. i think if he didn't have control, they would crash and burn. there are so many moving parts. global economies, privacy. >> everything comes from mark. >> for better or worse. >> thanks, david. >> thanks for having me. the jury in the john edwards trial will resume on monday. anna werner is outside the courthouse in greensboro, north carolina. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. the eight men and four women started deliberations just before 10:00 yesterday morning. they deliberated for some four to five hours. they've been hearing testimony and evidence in this case for the past four weeks. now they will decide whether john edwards will go home to his children or to prison. john edwards went from senator to presidential hopeful to a man simply fighting for his freedom. this is now running over to
8:13 am
monday. is that good news for john edwards? >> potentially. the longer the case goes it's an indication some jurors are having trouble finding guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. >> reporter: prosecutors say edwards belongs in prison. he de vized an elaborate scheme to use $1 million from donors to hide his affair from rielle hunter. everyone understood news of the affair would ruin his chances for president. prosecutor told the yir in closing arguments. edwards' defense attorney told jurors that edwards did commit many sins but did not break any laws. said lowell this is a case that should define the difference between somebody committing a wrong and committing a crime. lowell also attacked the credibility of the government's key witness, edwards' former campaign aide, andrew young, saying he and his wife plotted to keep much of the donated money to built their dream house.
8:14 am
shortly after the start of deliberations friday jurors sent a note to the judge asking to view government exhibits concerning the money that came from one of edwards' two wealthy donor, rachel "bunny" mellon. they're taking their time. they're coming back monday morning. so, when you're talking about the jury the evidence they asked for, you know if experts like shanahan will tell you it's a bit like trying to read the tea leaves. the exhibits they asked for from the government relate to the first two counts that he is charged with of the six felony counts. so, that seems to make sense that they would want those exhibits first. but if they take that for all these accounts they could be here for some time next week. >> anna werner in greensboro thankyou very much. joining us in studio "48 hours" correspondent, erin moriarty. you can see she sits up in her seat and watches every detail in
8:15 am
this case. you're an attorney as well. do we get a verdict on monday? >> oh, i don't think so. i think anna is right. i think it could take a while. this is a very very difficult deliberation for them. when you read the jury instructions, they're told they have to look at the intent of the donor. bunny mellon and fred baron. the problem is neither one of them testified. fred baron died in 2008 and bunny mellon is almost 102. so, now they have to go back to the hard evidence and try to figure out what was in their minds? did they intend these to be gifts, that they would have helped john edwards no matter what or was it definitely to affect the election? what's tough is you know all the evidence kind of goes both ways. >> who's been the strongest witness in defining that intent? >> well you know it's andrew young. i really think it's ultimately going to come down to whether the jury believes andrew young or not. there are a lot of reasons not to. he got full immunity. there are a lot of reasons for him not to be entirely truthful.
8:16 am
he took so much of the money for his house. i think it really does come down with him being key witness. if they believe him, i think john edwards has a real chance of being convicted. the word willfully because the way it's defined in the jury instructions is that he had to know what he was doing was against the law. and from the times i sat in the courtroom, i did not hear a lot of evidence about that. willfully may be the word that saves them. >> we talk about how this trial was sensational regardless but is this a story of the people who didn't testify in this trial? you mentioned bunny mellon isn't testifying, fred baron died, rielle hunter didn't testify, john edwards didn't testify, so essentially it comes down to andrew young. >> it does. there are so many credibility problems with andrew young. everybody has a lot at stake here. i think the government has as much at stake here as the senator does.
8:17 am
>> as an attorney what's your sense of where the jury's mind is right now and what they're following and what pieces of information have been the best pieces of information to persuade them? >> clearly, anna was right. i think they are definitely going count by count and right now taking a look at the evidence that would indicate what bunny mellon was thinking when she gave the money. they seem to be very methodical. but trust me i've watched so many trials i will never try to read the mind of jurors. one time i was at a trial and it was divided, half and half white and black. eight days. we thought, oh my gosh, they're divided on racial issues. they said no we're being very careful. i don't even try to guess what a jury does anymore. >> if they deliberate the whole saturday as well. >> they'll be there all week you're right. >> erin moriarty thank you very much. in other news at least one

. ♪ every morning she makes me a cup of coffee ♪ >> i heard that song last time. i downloaded it. >> i like that song. welcome back to "cbs this morning: saturday." i'm jeff glor. >> i'm rebecca jarvis. you know what this weekend is? >> what? >> graduation to a lot of people. congratulations to the class of 2012. write a passage, you all know that. but it is getting tougher out there. people aren't finding jobs as easily as they used to there aren't enough jobs out there, 2 million grads, and they all know this, i don't have to say it deeply in debt. we're offering helps on the best way to handle both of those problems, find yourself a job
8:31 am
and find a way to pay off the debt. >> it's not just the debt on the books from current grads, it's those from graduated 15 0 years ago. >> it's a ballooning problem. >> maybe some good news this morning. coffee, it's the latest study on coffee. there's a lot to come out but this one we noticed in particular because it has some -- we think some good news. >> because we like coffee so much so that i have two cups every morning. >> we love coffee. by the way this says it may not make a difference in terms of health effect decaf or regular. >> that's interesting. also the eight high school seniors who pulled off an unforgettable yearbook stunt. we'll tell you all about it when we go "behind the headlines". first we begin with the latest in the shooting death of trayvon martin. lawyers for the man who shot him, george zimmerman, are pouring over 200 pages of evidence. >> it has detailed information about what happened that rainy nice in florida, but as mark
8:32 am
strassmann reports, it doesn't answer one of the most important questions -- who threw the first punch? >> reporter: surveillance video shows trayvon martin buying skittles and a can of iced tea. he thought he was about to watch the nba all-star game. 20 minutes later, he was dead. >> 911. do you need police, fire or medical. >> reporter: in the file his unnamed girlfriend recalled talking to him on his cell phone. he remembers seeing someone following him. >> he told me the guy was getting close -- like he told me the guy was getting real close to him. >> reporter: no witness saw how the confrontation began or ended. one witness describes seeing martin thrash zimmerman like a mixed martial arts expert. >> the one guy in the top black hood di was throwing blows. >> reporter: zimmerman shot martin once in the heart no less than 18 inches away. sanford police concluded the confrontation was ultimately
8:33 am
avoidable by zimmerman if zimmerman remained in his vehicle and awaited law enforcement. nothing jumped out as the a-ha moment, the smoking gun? >> i've not seen anything like that. >> reporter: mark o'mara zimmerman's lawyer says prosecutors have only seen the entire case. >> i've only gotten half no more than half. the public has gotten well less than half. >> reporter: o'mara will now depose dozens of his own witnesses preparing for a pretrial hearing later this summer. >> joining us from orlando is been gentlemanja benjamin crump, attorney for trayvon martin's parents. >> good morning. >> will we ever know who threw the first punch? >> we don't think that's completely relevant when you think about the fact we know who pursued in this matter. we know it was george zimmerman who got out of his car on that
8:34 am
rainy night and profiled pursued and confronted trayvon martin. and the police concluded, if he simply would have stood down and not disregarded the police instructions none of this would have happened. he wouldn't be in jail and trayvon martin would be living. >> and yet you have these reports from the hospital about the bruises, the cuts on trayvon martin's hands and then the eyewitness accounts of a mixed martial arts type beating that ensued. is that going to make it harder for you to prosecute zimmerman under second-degree murder? >> we don't think so. we're happy that all the evidence is out so it could be fully vetted and looked at by everybody, interpreted for themselves and not have an interpreter. when you look at autopsy reports, trayvon martin had one little cut less than one-eighth of an inch on his hand. the injuries to george zimmerman. not substantial enough for him to have to go to the hospital
8:35 am
that night. we know trayvon martin's injuries were. that particular witness, please look at that report very carefully, and you will see a lot of different thing. one thing just as of yesterday, he has now changed his testimony to say he could not tell who was crying for help. before he said it was george zimmerman. so all the evidence needs to come out. it needs to be a fair and impartial trial. the most important thing is what the police said. if he doesn't get out of his car and profile trayvon martin trayvon martin isn't dead and his mother and father are not crying every time they see that surveillance video, knowing this is the last time they will see their son moving. >> you don't think it's significant that trayvon martin had chp in his system indicating he could have used marijuana in the last few days before that? >> not at all. all the experts have said that's insignificant. we just fear that is an assault on his character.
8:36 am
we hear tales of people going down to his classroom, offering money to see if they can get negative video or anything on trayvon martin. it's so wrong and it has no relevance in this trial. we just want to get the truth out of why george zimmerman shot trayvon martin in the heart. >> benjamin crump, appreciate your time. thank you, sir. >> thank you. now here's lonnie with another check of our weather at 36 minutes past the hour. good morning to you. >> you're getting good at that. >> i'm working on it. >> good enough. you can tell we have a beautiful sky over new york city. nice looking skyline shot. i want to talk to you about the elements in our atmosphere. this is what mother nature serves up today. a couple low pressure systems around the plains which means wet weather. low pressure off the southeast coast which means wet weather. what you don't see on the map, just to the west of that cold front and low pressure systems, you see that rain around fargo.
8:37 am
this. doesn't look like too much of anything, right? weak upper level disturbance. what it means for places like cheyenne and casper scottsbluff, denver just persist in cloud cover. you'll have temperatures about 10 degrees cooler than you would typically experience this time of the year. that's one quick look at a portion of the country. here is a closer look, a better look at the weather for your weekend. whatever the weather serves up, make it a great day. >> you know what it's like to graduate. you've graduated a couple times in your life. well, guess what the new crop is graduating. so now what? the class of 2012 faces a perfect storm -- no jobs big debt.

8:41 am
it is graduation time so now what? 2 million college grads are facing -- it's kind of a dire situation. in addition to enjoying the moment, they're in debt and finding a job is very tough. >> very tough situation. here with advice on how to pay off loans while searching for work at the same time is host of yahoo's financially fit, good
8:42 am
morning. >> good morning. >> i guess we have to establish priorities. priority one should be what? >> have a road map. ask fundamental questions, will i dive nose deep into job market or apply to graduate school? are you working part time? are you living with mom and dad? a lot of college students graduate and live with mom and dad at least temporarily. you have to have a strategy and stick to it. >> given the tough jobs market how flexible should people be with their job market. >> 2 million competitors at least out of the class of 2012 so stay flexible which means don't be so hung up on what you studied in. we have transferable skills that can be applied to any workplace. don't try to hold off for the perfect, full-time dream job. chances are that first job won't be your dream job. you may have to piece together a couple of jobs in this market a couple of part-time gigs. learn how to hustle. it will pay off the older you
8:43 am
get. i can vouch for that. >> i'm a huge fan of twitter, but you should keep in mind if you're sending out 17,000 twitter messages a day, your potential employer will look at social media sites and what you're doing there. >> your social networking profile is an integral part of your professional profile, your resume and all of those other things. speaking of twitter, i think it can be a useful way to network. you have to be strategic. don't be tweeting about what you ate for lunch but, rather, what you're reading, follow the leaders in the industry you want to work in and they'll notice you. i know people have been connecting and actually finding jobs on twitter but you have to be smart about it. >> it's not just twitter. there are other social networks out there. what do you think is the best for landing yourself a job? >> obviously, linkedin, have have to be on linkedin. in terms of communicating twitter is getting up there. rather than just facebook. facebook is still kind of
8:44 am
private whereas twitter is a public networking marketplace. it's almost like going into a job fair and introducing yourself to random people. >> paying off those loans, i mean how do we make the decision if loans are paid off versus credit card? is it evaluating which is the higher interest rate or more to it? >> here's the thing. student loans, they're really tough to pay off, but flexible payments for students especially federal loans. while the credit card has a higher interest rate i would say address the student loans first and foremost because when you don't, they balloon. the interest rates skyrocket. and they're with you till death do you part in most cases. even in bankruptcy. it's very, very hard to dismiss student loans. you call them good debt but often it ends up being bad debt if you don't address it early and often. talk to your student loan officer as soon as possible if you're having any difficulties. there's income base for payment options with those with federal
8:45 am

9:06 am
tears during testimony about a confrontation between her cancer-stricken mother and her father. >> she's not the only famous daughter to stand by her dad. here's a look at other children and their scandalous parents, doug weed, author of "all the president's children" and lee woodruff. good to see you. doug, you've been looking at this for so many years, so many generations of power and struggle s this a common thing with kate standing by her father? >> yes, recurring, almost like an act of nature. there's loyalty and then something beyond loyalty, and that's love. in the edwards case we saw loyalty to the extreme. i mean, one of the aides accepted the paternity of the child. that's as far as it gets in loyalty. but when loyalty passes and it's become state's evidence then all that's left is love. here's kate. this is a moment -- precious moment for her, bittersweet
9:07 am
moment, because she's needed maybe for the first time in her life, he needs her. and she has to sense that. >> we shouldn't be shocked by that, lee? >> no. you look at history and parents who have abused their children in all different ways that bond is so strong. blood really is thicker than almost anything. and it's your parents. that is a connection that's hard to explain. i think you have to do something egregious probably for that to happen. even in the short term children who don't speak to their parents because of some transgression, they always seem to come around. >> what other parallels stand out to you? >> well chelsea clinton, that great moment where she's walking across the lawn with her mom and dad and her back -- their backs are to the camera and she reaches out and grabs his hand her hand. that's something all the presidents men and women could not do. that was a message to the country, hey we're a family. leave us alone. and that's another example of a young lady standing up for her father and her mother.
9:08 am
>> of course -- >> privacy. >> nixon's daughters stood up for him throughout the watergate scandal. the bernard madoff scandal, there's a different story there with his sons. they did not stand by their father. and i wonder for both of you and lee maybe you first, why is that? is it because they were boys or is there something else there? >> because men just aren't as loyal. >> well, men are like dogs right? bad dogs. >> kidding, fkt. >> they were adults at the time. >> they were adults. doug and i were talking about this a little earlier. there is a gender difference which he can speak to better than i but i also think when i look at that case there's a mother/son thing happening there, so the mother was completely lied to but also to me those boys' lives, careers and reputations were tied up in what he did in a lifetime of deceit. that's egregious. >> that's very good. psychologists would say that a
9:09 am
man is task-oriented and a woman is also -- has a social dimension to her that a man can't rival. so, with the case -- the edwards case, the nixons case, the dream is dead. and madoff the boy takes his life, but for the young lady the dream is dead but the person is still here. and most dramatic example of that in history, you look at chelsea clinton and the impeachment of clinton. you go back to the last impeachment, there was a son and daughter working in the white house. the son took his life. that's under andrew johnson, his son robert. the daughter martha marched capitol hill and said we need money to run the white house. i don't care whether you like my dad or not. with the nixon girls, julie was spit on at campus as she walked across campus but chief watergate prosecutor said there's got to be something good about richard nixon because of his daughters. >> i like the way you dance around the gender differences there. >> no, let's go there.

flat out, women are nurturers, caregivers. women stick by their men and men jump ship. >> you see it throughout history, unfortunately. >> on that note -- >> right. >> -- it's a pleasure -- >> does anybody want to redeem themselves here? >> i'm going to work it the rest of the weekend. i'll be cleaning all weekend long. thank you. >> thanks so much. and coming up next reading, writing and tweeting? well, we'll take you to a school where first graders are using social media in the classroom. should they be making friends online instead of on the playground? you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday." but there are foods that i had no idea had so much acid in them. my dentist said that the acid in fruit, or fruit juice or fruit teas softens the enamel so that then it can potentially erode. once that enamel is gone it's gone. my dentist recommended that i use pronamel to help harden that enamel so that it's not brushed away. pronamel protects your teeth from the effects

9:15 am
yes? >> my mother tweets. >> reporter: what are you learning from other people? >> about their country. >> reporter: do you notice a change in the children's abilities based off the introduction of twitter into the education? >> it helps them to see just the opportunities for learning that are out there. >> reporter: it stretches them? >> uh-huh absolutely. there's something else i want to show you. >> miss simmons always checks the tweet before we're allowed to see them. >> i know our messages today are safe. >> reporter: mrs. simmons controls the account. for safety she only follows other classrooms and reads all the tweets in advance. like this one there a school in australia. >> we like to tweet with people from other countries. they have different -- >> that's a big word. >> if you use each sound, you might be able to get it.
9:16 am
>> per -- >> perspective. >> that just means they might learn things differently than we do. >> reporter: what do you prefer, books or ipad? >> ipad. >> ipad. >> ipad. >> i love books and i love the ipad. >> reporter: but for 6 and 7-year-olds, still developing is social media social enough? so what makes twitter an easier place to make friends than the playground? >> you can -- you can make friends all over the world. at the playground you can only make friends at this school. >> reporter: what do you think this all does for the normal socialization of children? >> i know a lot of people are concerned about that because they have a vision of children off in a corner but at least in the classroom environment, that's not the way it's organized. these kids are really social. we take advantage of the fact that first graders are a social group. >> reporter: mrs. simmons says
9:17 am
social media is just one tool for teachers, and it's not going away. >> and i think it's so important we take advantage of it because we have so much to learn from each other. >> reporter: how does that sound? >> great. love it. >> joining us is child psychologist jennifer hartstein. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> interesting because, i mean listen, this stuff is clearly happening, so i think rebecca made good points in the piece. do we just have to find a way to accommodate it somehow? seems like the teacher is doing a reasonable job with it. >> right. she is. she's on top of making sure everything's appropriate. we're a much more connected socially through twitter, facebook, text message, e-mail as adults we have to assume kids will be much more connected. teaching them how to do it early is important. monitoring is the key. >> from what perspective can parents and teachers do a better job at that? >> it's really hard. we need to teach kids early what's okay and not okay. this teacher is doing a nice job of weeding out things that might be inappropriate for these
9:18 am
children. but we want the kids to learn what's inappropriate also so that they can see the red flags. . we want parents to understand. we may have to educate them as much as children. >> in this case in the story of columbus academy, the teacher is doing, i think from seeing it a great job of that, and the parents are also engaged and said they are monitoring it as well. >> the difference between twitter, though and facebook so the study here, 4% of kids on facebook are 6 years old or younger. >> uh-huh. >> that is a stunning number. >> it's stunning and actually really scary. twitter is 140 characters maybe pictures, can be inappropriate links on there. facebook is really a wider amount of information being presented. so a kid can click on something they don't realize and it's an inappropriate picture. you can take it down quickly, they've still seen it. we don't know how they process it how that goes through for them, so facebook has way too much. also open for predators, open for all sorts of other problems
9:19 am
parents may not be thinking through. >> you raise an interesting point 37 we're also seeing so much more technology imbedded into education to try to help students and help grow their knowledge of the world. what do you think we need to do in terms of directing the future of that to make it accessible and the right thing for kids to help them learn? >> it's really a good question and something we need to think about. technology is the way we're going. we're moving away from books to reading things on computers. we want to be able to bring costs down of course but also people are developing all sorts of applications for ipads and iphones and computers that are aimed at teaching numbers, teaching reading, teaching math in a way that teachers can actually be more enter active in the classroom because they can track some of the progress online or on another program and get individualized attention, which makes it more fun and that makes everybody more active learning. we also need to teach them how to be passive learners. >> yes. and parent need to be vigilant. >> you need to be so involved

9:34 am
"shameless," you are the definition of it. >> i know. i should write a parenting book by franc gallagher. >> that could be in your future. >> it's a good idea actually. because i think franc gallagher has some things to say that would probably make a difference. in one of the episodes he says, the best things you can give your kid is neglect. it prepares them for later traumatic experiences. >> and do you believe that? >> well no but i've got two kids. one of the ongoing discussions in my family is the whole idea of helicopter parenting and when to back off. the first argument felicity and i this is when it came to child proofing the whole house, making sure there were no right-angled corners. i said these kids are smart. if they fall down the stairs they're not going to do it
9:35 am
twice. let them learn. >> you're around a lot of children in "shameless," you're the adult in the room. >> a frightening thought. >> yeah. the adult in the room who behaves like the youngest kid in the room. >> right. >> what is it like to work in a cast where you're really -- i mean, you're kind of a mentor, it looks like? >> i do adore my cast. and they are -- a lot of them are young. we're watching them learn how to act right in front of america. they are astounding. >> is there that sense in hollywood, the frustration of there's this new generation of children and they have talent and is there fear of that? is there embracing of that? what's the sense? >> i personally hate anyone younger than me that's talented. i just don't like them. i don't like people that are better looking than me. i don't like anybody very much. i think acting is getting better and better. >> you do? >> i do. i do. >> you've played so many memorable characters. "boogie nights," "fargo,"
9:36 am
"shameless." is there a type of person you would love to embody you haven't yet? >> i would like to play the intellectual sometimes, the guy smarter than anybody else in the room. the killer that leaves the house and everything's dead, including the pet. yeah, there are a lot of different roles. >> is there always going to be a dark comedic side to everything you do? >> i hope so. it seems to be the way i lean. our show suffers under this a little bit. is it a comedy or a drama? and my favorite -- what i like to watch personally always falls into that split category because it's an old mike nichols rule. if you want to get people laughing, make them sad first and then pop the joke. if you want to make them sad, do it in the middle of a funny scene. >> well william h. macy great meeting you. i'm glad you were able to join

9:39 am
now, during toro days. i was living with this all-over pain. a deep, throbbing, persistent ache. my doctor diagnosed it as fibromyalgia, thought to be the result of overactive nerves that cause chronic widespread pain. lyrica is believed to calm these nerves. i learned lyrica can provide significant relief from fibromyalgia pain. and for some people, it can work in as early as the first week of treatment. so now i can do more of the things that i enjoy. lyrica is not for everyone. lyrica may cause serious allergic reactions or suicidal thoughts or actions. tell your doctor right away if you have these new or worsening depression, or unusual changes in mood or behavior, or any swelling or affected breathing or skin, or changes in eyesight including blurry vision or muscle pain with fever or tired feeling. common side effects are dizziness, sleepiness weight gain, and swelling of hands, legs and feet. don't drink alcohol while taking lyrica. don't drive or use machinery until you know how lyrica affects you. with less pain i'm feeling better now that
9:40 am
i've found lyrica. ask your doctor if lyrica is right for your fibromyalgia pain. i'm not listening anymore -- >> doo, dah, doo, dah -- >> oh franc -- >> why aren't you dressed. they're going to come pick us up like now. >> the game's almost over. it will take me five minutes to throw on my tux. >> doug, i've seen you spend a day on a shoe horn. >> mike, i have two surprises for you. the first, i got these blisters while i was trying to learn how to play golf. >> you're kidding? >> i figured if you ever needed a partner, i'd be ready. >> these couples illustrate how very different marriages can be. one fights like cats and dogs the other interact like parents and children. >> what does that mean in terms of surviveabilitysurvivability? here to describe five types of
9:41 am
marriage, relationship expert ian and heidi. let's begin with relationship cat and dog, fight constantly make up just as passionately turbulent relationship. survivability? >> i don't think so great. i think it is important for couples to be able to argue constructively and communicate emp theticily but when you're fighting like cats and dogs it's all about that drama. and the issues keep coming up but you're not necessarily moving forward. i sort of say 50/50. >> heidi? >> whoa, whoa, whoa. first of all, i think there's an aspect of every marriage in every one of these types. if you're static in any one of these, just walk out the door right now. say bye, see you monday. but the truth of it is in a marriage where at least there's fighting, it means there's passion. at least there's passion, it means something can come of it. so, i would give it higher than a 50/50. this is one i would say has a very good chance of surviving if
9:42 am
they could just learn some communication skills. >> up next is parent and child. clearly one plays the parent and child. usually a lack of intimatecy in that relationship. does it work? >> i actually think it does. i know a lot of couples in which one person is dominant the other is submissive and the submissive person doesn't mind having the roost run and being bossed around and someone having all the rules. i've seen those maernls actually really last. >> they can last. they can last but there's nothing going on in the bedroom --. >> i disagree with that. >> here's the problem with that. if you're in a marriage for the right reason to grow and learn and learn how to love more love yourself even more. if you're stuck in this role of parent and child, you'll never grow. you'll never grow. it's a decision -- it's a contract to really stay stuck. >> i know a lot of guys who love their wives and they pick out his tie in the morning -- >> let's move on. >> the idol/fan relationship.
9:43 am
one idolizes the other, hero worship. >> that's tough one. part of every relationship has to be i love my husband this way or i love my wife. if you're stuck in that role saying, my husband is the greatest and not looking at other aspects of who he is it's not going to work. it's going to fall apart after about eight years. >> i think this is -- i think this is terrible because you have somebody being idolized but for the person doing all the worshipping, they usually lose their self-esteem, they're not being seen they're not being heard. >> that is not going to work. another is babes in the woods, known as best friends, couple shares everything the two become one hard to break through collective exterior. they don't have a lot of friends, just hang out together. >> they wear the same clothes after a while. they're like honey, what are we eating? it's the same food. >> does or doesn't work? >> i don't think it works at all. i think if you're a great couple, you have to be a strong individual and have your own life. >> exactly. >> you can't be living through a relationship. you have to be living with a person. >> i call that one the cult of
9:44 am
two. t's like, you agree on everything, so you never really get to experience a full life. >> lastly we have the grownup, people acting like adults. >> acting like adults acting. again, no sex going on in those marriages. those are the ones where you've just become the best friend, you know, how you doing? how you doing? it's not -- there's this lack of passion and i think that's very important in any long-term relationship. by the way they could stay together 50 years if that's the kind of relationship they want. it's that relationship. >> i have to say, i was chatting before the segment, me and my wife, we were talking about this and we didn't fit into any of these. maybe the key is you try to break the mold a little bit. >> there's a little from each that you can sometimes take in a healthy way. >> the good news is you don't fit into any of these. if it did, it would mean you would be static. people think you outgrow a marriage. you out grow the roles you've taken on. in a healthy individual a healthy relationship, those
9:45 am
roles evolve. that's what we're looking at. >> this is idol/fan by the way. such a huge fan of her. >> oh i thought i was the fan. >> not at all. thank you, guys. >> thanks. coming up next, eric dishes about the latest edition to his blue ribbon restaurant and his ultimate dish northern fried chicken. you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday." ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] they were born to climb... born to leap, born to stalk and born to pounce. to understand why, we journeyed to africa where their wild ancestor was born. there we discovered that cats, no matter where they are... are born to be cats. and shouldn't your cat be who he was born to be? discover your cat's true nature. purina one. i want healthy skin for life.

hand in hand. >> i do. every minute of every day. >> and you plan all of this out with him? >> we do absolutely everything together. >> how did that relationship first develop into the business relationship? and is that complicated? >> i think it's mentally complicated but we've had 45 years to work on it. and the first 15 or 20 were filled with some good brawls, but certainly since we started business together it's been the best thing in our lives. >> how long did it take to you come up with this amazing fried chicken recipe? how many fries? >> and whose idea was it? >> you know, i would say both of ours. >> good move. >> it's one of those things that we didn't really know how to make southern fried chicken, we're from new jersey so we've eaten fried chicken but it wasn't a family tradition or anything like that. so we didn't know how to make it properly so we made it up on our
9:50 am
own and came out one magical night and that was it. >> by the way, are we proper using utensils or -- >> i think there's sort of no rules involved. i'd say hands are totally cool. the most important thing is we have our blue ribbon mexican honey. we have a honey farm in mexico. and we have -- the seasoning is a little salty, spicy, and then the honey is magical sweetness that really makes it the greatest chicken every. >> what is the secret to making the chicken the greatest ever? >> first of all, you have to have good chicken to start with. like anything you need the best ingredient you can get. you need to dry your chicken, clean your chicken and then we use mozza meal in our crust. we were making matza balls one day and we said, let's try it with fried chicken and it provides an amazing crunch without being oily and greasy.
9:51 am
>> i like that you're not afraid to push boundaries and try new foods and areas. two jersey guys you wouldn't think -- >> exactly. both of us trained in paris at le cordon blue. we really learned structure and tradition there and basic cooking techniques. when we had the opportunity to open our own restaurant we just loved the opportunity to live outside of the rules and not follow any program. and people say what kind of restaurant are you going to make? what are you going to make? the only answer we've come up with is a good restaurant. and we made it for us really. we made it for our taste. and luckily we seem to have universal tastes. >> you're not focus group testing this stuff -- >> if we want to make it we feel good about making it we think we can do a good job with it we make anything. nothing it off bounds. >> would you go it separately, go it alone? >> not even a consideration.
