7:07 am
communicate and police officers law enforcement community must stay constantly in contact with its citizens, be responsive and be able to monitor trends within the communities. so it's certainly changed the way law enforcement works with and responds to crimes. >> sean mark albert mentioned there were seven arrests for threats to police in new york this week. three of those apparently came out of information from social media. how do police actually track this stuff? >> that's right. so law enforcement looks at aggregate data. they can use social media to monitor trends and to follow developments within a community. they've got the ability using certain applications to look for key words or identifiers that might alert them to some ongoing threat or some act of violence. >> you mentioned those techniques. i read about an algorithm. how exactly do you mine through
7:08 am
it? is there a way? >> it's somewhat complex. you talk about algorithms. there are computer codes that enable users to search just the way citizens use to search for things via google or other types of applications. but, again, the ability for law enforcement to look at large swaths of data there are billions of postings through dozens of popular social media platforms that law enforce management may look at. >> sean obviously there's a lot of infamiliar of familiar torrey social dialogue. how do you determine which is a threat? >> you have to be cautious because you can infringe upon people's first amendment rights. there's constantly a balance between the types of threats you see here versus people's legitimate rights to speak
7:09 am
freely and language that is protected by the constitution. law enforcement balances that. they look at whether somebody has the means or the motives, perhaps somebody who's actually gone out and purchased weapons or something of that nature indicating they're moving beyond just a statement to some stonewall actual act of violence. >> very interesting investigation. sean, thank you so much. >> thank you. >> tomorrow on "face the nation" bob schieffer's guests will inclooul clud police commission er commissioner and former mayor rudy giuliani. both were hacked this week ruining christmas for users. carter evans joins our los angeles bureau with the latest. >> good morning. a shadowy group had threatened to shut down for playstation and

7:11 am
attack. they taunted twitter users saying i wonder how h people tried to return their new console thinking it was broken. t.j. and his brother's brand-new xbox was one of those knocked offline. >> kind of like blowing my mind. >> reporter: the hackers claimed to have ended the attack after they were e engaged a deal. >> that means they can do it again any time they want. >> the attacks on microsoft and sony don't appear to have any connection to the recent hack against sony entertainment or the controversy over the release of the film "the interview." vinita? >> carter evans in los angeles, thank you. it looks like sony's decision to let viewers download "the interview" paid off. it got enormous solacety.

7:13 am
but the others will all be dealing with some tough weather we had a system moveing across the country and it's drawing a lot of moisture from the gulf of mexico especially once it crosses the mississippi river. those will be moving onshore, so really flooding will a big issue from lake charles to baton rouge, even jackson and birmingham. a flood watch is on. on the north side of the system, cold air has moved in. there's a winter weather advisory for this area in purple and that is running until noon. snow forecast totals will probably be 1 to 5 inches in the purple area as the cold air part of the system moves in. we see that intrusion of cold air, highs today only in the 20s for billings and denver and fargo. so that cold air is feeding into the moisture as that system moves across the country. so the eastern seaboard is looking mild. 51 in new york 55 in d.c. and
7:14 am
super warm down in florida with high temperatures in the low 80s. anthony? >> thank you so much. wall street's so-called santa claus rally delivered more presents than the day after christmas. also oil prices continue to fall. all that has some economists hoping americans will spend more now that they don't have topay as much at the pump. >> as the u.s. economy strengths the russian economy is in dire straits. it's causing a sharp recession and could cause double digit inflation next year. debora patta is in our london office. good morning. >> good morning. the worst phase of the currency crisis is over but financial analysts paint a very different picture saying the shock lav or the collapse of the russian ruble will connell to be felt
7:15 am
for some time to come. it's going to be a cold weekend in russia. the plunging oil price has pushed the russian economy to the brink of collapse. russian president vladimir putin has now scrapped his government's new year's holidays to deal with the crisis. we even habed a long and depressing winter, he said but our government cannot afford a holiday, at least this year. putin has bet almost his entire economy on oil and gas. on the oil price collapse, he's starved his country of major economic paths. if the oil stace below $60 a barrel the russian economy will contract by more than a staringing 4% next year. at midnight a hike in interest rates has not been enough and it's ordinary russians who will feel it the most. >> their situation is going to
7:16 am
deteriorate over the next six months. it is going to be a very tough winter. >> reporter: but it is not just bad for russia. the country is facing a sharm recession that could have global political repercussions if putin becomes desperate. it's felt that any additional u.s. sanctions may provoke a response. >> we don't like to be pushed. the more we push the more we -- >> it was what earned him the love of western governments. if squeezed too hard, it is feared he could step up hostilities in the region and consider additional retaliatory sanctions against the west. >> thank you. pro-russian rebelss are

7:18 am
that required him to use a wheelchair. this is the last weekend of the nfl season. there are still some must-win games. here with a preview of what to expect is nfl insider jason lacken fora of c b sbs sports. what's at stake? >> some playoff titles and seeds and more importantly, the buy. two teams get a weekend off and for a game that's this physical and demanding, that's vital. >> detroit lions plays the packers at green bay. they haven't won them in more than 20 years. can its happen? >> i think it can happen. right now green bay is having trouble protecting their quarterback aaron rodgers. he's kind of dinged up. detroit to me is one team who can go to seattle and beat seattle. >> we've got to two teams that
7:19 am
are under 500 here. carolina versus atlanta. >> yeah, we do. and they're not going to be able to get to .500 but someone is going to host a playoff game at home. we've got this game at cbs. right now carolina cam newton, if you recall their star quarterback was in an auto accident a few weeks ago. he's going to come back. he's obviously survived that and is thriving. can atlanta finally stop the run because they've had teams grinding at them. >> let's talk about this bengals in pittsburgh. this is a night game and that could affect something. >> this is the final game of the regular season. it will set thal division the afc north. whoever wins that game wins the division. for cincinnati it's a bit of a statement game. people are looking at their young quarterback andy dalton and saying can he put his team on their back or can he come along for the ride? pittsburgh is certainly the favorite here. if denver managed to lose to
7:20 am
oakland, cincinnati can get a chance to get the second seed which means they get a weekend off. >> the san diego chargers are going up against the kansas city chiefs. what do we expect there? >> it's an nushlg game because it's the second time they've met in week 17 and both times because of sort of a freaky injury, the chiefs have to go back to their quarterback. alex smith is out. san diego knows if they win they're in. and san francisco can get in. it will be very interesting to see what this young backup can do. sometimes you keach people off guard. they don't game plan for them the same way they would. maybe in a weird way that works to kansas city's advantage. >> we could have a wild weekend. of course, you can catch all the, a tomorrow on "the nhe nfl today" starting right here on cbs. marty walsh wants to add
7:21 am
more time to the school day in boston. the goal is to expand learning time by 40 minutes and to give teachers chance to bring creative elements into the classroom. the proposal comes with extra pay for teachers. they'll vote on it next month. if approved the new schedule will begin in the fall. the u.s. army is putting giant balloons in the air. they're designed to detect cruise missiles from hundreds of miles away. officials say there are no cameras on board and no plans to zoom in on anyone on the ground but prievgcy advocates are concerned that could change. the "washington post" says tesla is giving drivers of its electrical convertible better mileage. a battery running on 400 miles. brace yourself for the sticker price. it started at $100,000. >> yikes. you have to wonder how dropping

7:33 am
morning rounds. dr. jon lapook and holly phillips on what medical developments we should look for in the new year. and why medical apps could be just what the doctor ordered. you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday." >> announcer: this portion sponsored by the discover it card, the card that treats you like you treat you. nice. i'm looking into some suspicious activity myself. madame that is not a changing table. at discover, we treat you like you'd treat you. get the it card at discover.com i'm caridee. i've had moderate to severe plaque psoriasis most my life. but that hasn't stopped me from modeling. my doctor told me about stelara®. it helps keep my skin clearer. with only 4 doses a year after 2 starter doses... ... stelara® helps me be in season. stelara® may lower your ability to fight infections and increase your risk of infections. some serious infections require hospitalization.
7:34 am
before starting stelara®... ...your doctor should test for tuberculosis. stelara® may increase your risk of cancer. always tell your doctor if you have any sign of infection, have had cancer, or if you develop any new skin growths. do not take stelara® if you are allergic to stelara® or any of its ingredients. alert your doctor of new or worsening problems including headaches, seizures, confusion and vision problems- these may be signs of a rare, potentially fatal brain condition. serious allergic reactions can occur. tell your doctor if you or anyone in your house needs or has recently received a vaccine. in a medical study most stelara® patients saw at least 75% clearer skin... ...and the majority were rated as cleared or minimal at 12 weeks. stelara® helps keep my skin clearer. ask your doctor about stelara®. these little angels build in softness. and these little angels build in strength. and that little angel says "weeeeeeeee!" 60% more sheets than charmin. everything you want and the value you love. angel soft. suffering from the flu is a really
7:35 am
big deal. with aches, fever and chills- there's no such thing as a little flu. so why treat it like it's a little cold? there's something that works differently than over-the-counter remedies. attack the flu virus at its source with prescription tamiflu. and call your doctor right away. tamiflu is fda approved to treat the flu in people 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. ask your doctor about tamiflu and attack the flu virus at its source.
7:36 am
time now for "morning rounds" with cbs news chief medical correspondent dr. jon lapook and contributor dr. holly phillips. we've looked at stories that doctors feel will be the most important this year and will affect us in the coming year. first up alzheimer's. 5 million are diagnosed with the disease and cases are on the rise. jon, what do we know about what actually causes alzheimer's? >> the person who answers that question, anthony, wins the nobel prize. so here it is.
7:37 am
a lot is known, but we don't know for sure what causes it. we know that what is there in people who have alzheimer's. so there's abnormal protein call called beta norma lean and tau proteins. we know there are physical changes. what is the first event or series, we don't know. it looks now that inflammation plays an important role. >> what is the difference between dementia and alzheimer's? >> i love that question because there's such confusion about this. up above broad category is dementia. under the broad category there are lots of things that can cause it, by far, the most common is alzheimer's. a third have it by vascular dementia which means tiny little mini strokes or not enough supply to the brain. problem thinking low thyroid,
7:38 am
all sorts of other violot min deficiencies can do it. parkinson's and other neurological conditions that are associated with dementia. so dementia is the big category and there are other things under that. >> holly, we are seeing promising research aren't we? >> in my opinion the most breakthrough had to do with early detection. two studies. one from the national institute of aging, they actually discovered a protein in the blood called irs-1 which can be screened for ten years before symptoms of alzheimer's start and it has in thee 100% accuracy. this hasn't been done on a large scale yet, but it seems very promising. the other in involves a retina scan also looking for a protein, beta norm lynn protein for the eye which opens up the idea of picking up alzheimer's before symptoms start.
7:39 am
that's so important because all intervention, whether it's diet medications, they all work best early. this year we've seen an explosion of health apps and devices that measure our vital signs. i want to ask both of you. how much do you think these apps could potentially change the way we function, live? >> i think they could have a tremendous impact. virtual doctors' apps are exploding. they're so popular. these are the apps where you can either type in symptoms to get doctors on the other end -- you can get their advice about what to do. some of the apps you actually pay for on a monthly basis or per appointment basis, and then you have a video conference with doctors. now, this has been fairly criticized in that's not the right way to practice medicine. on the other hand, they're here to stay and have some benefit to giving access to care. that's something on the horizon that continues to explode. >> i do love all the new
7:40 am
technology that allows us as physicians to physician out what's going on in your body at home. their and to measure your pulse, blood pressure cardio gram. having palpitations -- beam me over what your cardio gram is showing. you can actually do that now. we know your blood pressure can go up in the office doctor/white coat. >> finally, we can't leave without talking about the biggest medical story of the year. ebola was the outbreak heard around the world. the infect us disease defined 2014 as the most widely covered medical story even landing on "time's" cover. what did we learn about this outbreak? >> it's a terrifying disease. it seems like all i was talking about for several months and you can understand why it was terrifying. 70% mortality reported in west
7:41 am
africa, no obvious way of treating it. then suddenly it appears in the united states. initially there had been reassurance, we've got this under control, we know how to handle it there was missteps at the beginning, misdiagnosis. then suddenly people lost faith. maybe we don't have this under control. we learned some lessons there. protocols needed to be readjusted and how much your body should be covered by all of the protective equipment. and the fact we needed to be able to rehearse. we saw the hospitals throughout the country. they were having drills where they had fake patients coming in people who were secret shoppers who came in with symptoms they didn't know they were coming in to see if they could pick them up. i mean really going through the measures to see are you truly able to handle this. >> you know one other thing i find interesting is that the strong media coverage has been criticized in part fairly
7:42 am
because it theoretically made people panic or cause unnecessary worry. on the other hand it does have a silver lining. it really raised awareness. we appointed an ebola czar in our government. on the international level it shored up resources. i think it's prepared us for other outbreaks going forward and it's helping ebola right now. >> i do want to say something about cdc, the centers for disease control. they took it on the chin at the beginning. i think about this. they were responsible for all the follow-up, tracing contacted who had been exposed. you think about what happened just in dallas. they meticulously found out who was out there, who had been exposed, and they were able to follow them up for 21 days and they arranged for that to be done throughout the country with local authorities and local and health state officials. because of that, we were able to say the 21 days is up nobody's gotten it and sort of go, like
7:43 am
that. whereas in west africa we had no idea who was out there. there was no moment where we could say, okay we're out of the woods. that was a hood credit. the other thing i would leave you with is this is a lesson we cannot leave it to the last moment. cut research for years and years and years and say where's the vaccine, where's the treatment. right now there's no doubt there will be another one of these. very small world. lots of fever. >> it all matters. >> it's all -- somehow it's going to happen again. there will be another outbreak and at that point we shouldn't be saying where's the vaccine, where's the treatment. let's start working on it now. >> we want to thank you and caret it you both for a wonderful year of medical advice. thank you both. ahead, why you should put your credit cards on ice literally, yes, we said lid rally. that and other great financial advice for the year next on "cbs this morning: saturday."

no matter your age or where you are financially, there are some key monetary goals for you to think about as we think about. >> it discovered a clear u-curve. 20-somethings are totally confident. but that confident takes a big dip in their 30s and 40s. why is that? let's ask alexis and author of "the new york times" bestseller financially fearless." good morning to you. >> good morning. >> talk about this u-curve. it's interesting. >> it's fascinating. what we find is in your 20s when you're not thinking about it you feel grade and then you have duo incomes and your money building up and then you have kids and then your money dissipates and
7:48 am
you're in a position where you're financially strapped we want to help people think about 2015 resolutions. >> whatever age you are, what should you do in this coming year? >> in this coming year you want to sit down and have a complete game plan. not willy nilly here and there. you want a plan. so we start with things like retirement. right now we know about 53% of americans are only contributing to their retirement plan at work. not enough. and so some of the key tips there we try to thing about are, one, you want to make sure in 2015 you can contribute the full 18,000 to your 401(k) plan, 5,500 to your ira and 20,000. you want to be working toward your retirement. >> i think one of the resolutions for the new year is to own a new home. >> we know it's still the american dream, the thing we're all committed to. it's their numb bur one purchase they're working for so in 2015
7:49 am
we expect home prices to go up between 5% and 10% across the country and mortgage potentially go up. recent legislation, we thought and hoped you would have to put down 20% to really protect the individual. it didn't go through but at best we recommend a 20% as a proxy toward yo you can really afford. >> credit card dead isbt is what a lot of people are working toward. >> one in five don't believe they're going to be able to pay off their credit card debt in their lifetime. the average household is 9,000. if you're carrying credit card, make two payments a month. so if you actually make two payments you'll save yourself a little bit of extra interest and then on the flip side if you're really struggling if you really know you have a spending problem, go on cash. i actually recommend you put your credit cards in the freezer. it's crazy but do it. put them on ice literally so you

8:11 am
so why treat it like it's a little cold? there's something that works differently than over-the-counter remedies. attack the flu virus at its source with prescription tamiflu. and call your doctor right away. tamiflu is fda approved to treat the flu in people 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. ask your doctor about tamiflu and attack the flu virus at its source. discover brookside and discover an exciting combination of tastes. rich, dark chocolate covering soft centers. flavored with exotic fruit juices.

8:14 am
we've all done it. we've logged onto a new website and come upon the terms of agreement and instead of reading it we click on agree. >> who has time to read all that stuff even if it is a legally binding contract. the answer is effectively no one since one study found it would take the average person 250 working hours every year to read them all. >> seth wrote about the crazy end user aagreements. good morning. >> thanks for having me on. >> what is the effect of this?
8:15 am
>> they hide it in tiny -- in tiny fine print where you have to click three times. it's to protect them. >> what i found most fascinating is you don't have to necessarily click. if you're scrolling through someone's website you might have by default accepted the terms and agreements. >> exactly. if it says click to agree and click, for sure you have agreed according to the court. but've sometime even sometimes if you're looking at the page, you may be bound by being on it. the courts have found you still have to hold toed what. >> i don't know anybody who actually read this stuff so what's actually in there? >> it depends. it could be crazy stuff. there was an in-car navigation service that said they could in effect spy on you and report to law enforcement agency where you were.
8:16 am
some said they could show up at your house in the middle of the night and audit your possessions. they're absolutely insane. they throw everything including kitchen sink to make sure they're covered in any eventual alt. >> are they legally binding? >> that's the problem. you have these clauses designed to prevent you from sueing the company. they prevent you from starting a class action suit. basically they try to make that impossible to do. >> since they're shaving offer some of their costs do we get anything that costs less? >> sure. there's all sortses of services you use like facebook and google google map, they're free services that people enjoy and if companies had more legal liability and had to pay more, the services might not be free.
8:17 am
so there is an argument to be made that you would prefore have a service -- you'd prefer to have a website with terrible terms of service but it's great service you enjoy using and free as opposed to a horrible prokt that has terrific terms of service. >> some of these agreements are ridiculously long. the am contract, 55 pages. 30 feet when you splice it together. do they expect you to read these things and do the courts expect you to uphold them? >> nobody reads them even the lawyers who craft them. if you deed read them you wouldn't understand them because they're in legalese. >> they're legally binding? >> that i sore legally binding. no one could see their way out of. >> it we have to ask you about the one guy who did read this and it had a reward tucked inside. >> yes. one of these software companies hid a little clause that says the first person who sees this write to us and we're going give

8:23 am
immigrant" starring joaquin phoenix and jeremy remy. why did it didsappear? >> it's all about timing. it opened on may 16 against a little movie called "godzilla." i don't think it's unfair to say it got tramped by "godzilla." it really is a throwback to an old schoolkoolchool mellow drama. she's sort of forced into a life of prostitution. it's a beautiful movie. the performances are amazing. i have to think if it was released six weeks ago instead of six months ago it could have been a big oscar contender. >> let's talk about scarlett johansson's movie. the movie is called "under the skin." >> that's about an alien who's sort of hunting men for a mysterious purpose in scotland.
8:24 am
>> is she actually sexy in this one? we never see that? >> yes. i think there's going to be a shot of her in her ujds wear in this sort of montage. that will distract people for whatever i'm saying. it's an interesting movie. all the guys she's finding, they're not actors. they're real guys that the movies found in scotland so it's all shot with hidden cameras. it's sci-fi horror and an instructional video for aliens how to invade our planet. next you chose the comedy drama called "frank." tell us about that. >> it's a movie about a movie star. michael fassbender. there he is playing with a giant papier-mache head. it's amazing. he gives the most amazing performance. it's funny, it's sad. this is about a band. i really enjoyed this movie
8:25 am
quite a bit. instead, it's weird. he's wearing this head the whole movie. don't expect to see michael fassbender but it's really an interesting movie. what about "blue ruin." >> it's a familiar genre of the usual "revenge" movie usually a liam neeson type. this is more of a matt singer type movie. very flappable. that's what makes it so great. what would somebody like us do in a situation like this. would you screw up repeatedly over and over again. it's fascinating to watch. >> is this a film a director funded with using kickstarter? >> it was. it's one of those starters jeremy sonnier.
8:26 am
he put his house up and maxed out his cards at got $30,000 in kickstarter. >> that make mess want to see the movie even more. >> this is a swedish movie and we should warn people it's got subtitles. they're all about heroism, right? this movie is about cowardis. here you see this avalanche. it seems terrifying and the father runs away and panics instead of protecting his family and everyone turns out to be fine but the fact that he abandons his wife and child, it that doesn't play well. excellent date movie. >> i like how they all relate to you. >> it's all about me. >> matt singer thanks. coming up how to ring in the new year with style.
