7:03 am
7:04 am
7:05 am
sglnchts it's a day of celebration. it's a day of giving thanks. sgl they are thankingful that the the winds never materialized. some of the the wind gusts are high. 3.5 million people lining the
7:06 am
parade. route. they are excited that the balloons are included in the parade. >> thank you. parade coverage begins at k pacific time here on cbs. many stores are catering to customers who want to eat and then shop before the traditional black friday rush. and if you really can't wait, there's always kmart. this one in california opened at 6:00 this morning. however, not everyone is on board with thanksgiving shopping. >> reporter: this thanksgiving day more retailers plan to be open for business but this sears in new hampshire won't be one of them. >> it's just against everything i believe in. >> reporter: this owner is furious when she ze received a memo saying she was required to open at 7:00 p.m. tonight so she fired off a letter to her corporate bosses telling them her store would stay closed.
7:07 am
>> for us to bypass this and say that the dollar is more important than our families, it's unacceptable. >> sears defended itself in a statement saying we have encouraged all our dealers and franchisees to be open because we believe that is what many consumers want. according to a recent survey an estimated 33 million people plan to hit stores this holiday. still a handful of retailers including nordstrom costco and lowest are holding out. >> how many days do families come together and be thankful for something. >> reporter: she isn't the only one taking a stand. pizza hut manager tony says he lost his job after refusing to his employees work today. >> thanksgiving and christmas are the two days that they are
7:08 am
closed the whole year. there are only two days those people are guaranteed to have off to spend with their families. >> pizza hut says the decision is up to the independent franchises. the company is evaluating an unfortunate situation and in a statement said we respect an employee's decision not to work on a holiday if they so choose, which is why the vast majority of pizza huts are closed on thanksgiving. for cbs this morning, carter evans, los angeles. >> the national retail federation estimates up to 140 million people will shop this weekend. stores are banking on it. jill is here this morning. good morning to you. i find myself really upset because i feel like i'm already behind the curve. is the backlash worth opening the day before? >> it depends. it's estimated that 33 million people will be shopping today. we won't be one of them but that's okay. the key is retailers are trying to get us into the stores
7:09 am
earlier and earlier. the more we are in the stores or online, the higher the potential to spend money. i talked to retail analysts. they say this is silly. all we're doing is stretching the holiday season out this first weekend. doesn't matter. but the results will tell us that 33 million people spend a the lot of money today, it will be a good thing. >>. if they wouldn't be open if they weren't making money. overall from the holiday sales, what are you expecting? >> the national retail federation says we should say a rise of 3. 9% over last year. but there's something really interesting. six fewer shopping days between thanksgiving and christmas. as a result the stores are bringing out the bargains earlier and earlier. 40 to 50% discounts earlier this month. deals that would have been saved for next week. so some retailers think this is going to be a great season.
7:10 am
macy's said great season. other end of the spectrum best buy and walmart warned this is going to be a weak holiday season. >> what will make or break the season. >> it always comes down to confidence. two readings on confidence this week. they showed different things. on one survey people are feeling awful. another one they were feeling better. so if we feel confident about our own financial situations then we'll go out and shop. this confidence is tied to the job market. it's like a straight line. so if we find out that jobs are becoming more plentiful, people are getting wage increases, they will feel like they want to spend money. there has been something interesting. we see high end retailers seeing much better business than the lower end. i think that speaks to the jobs situation. people who have made money and continue to hold jobs and get wage increases are spending. the middle to e lower not so much. >> jill, thank you very much. have a good thanksgiving. >> happy thanksgiving to you.
7:11 am
so much. and happy thanksgiving. >> and happy thanksgiving to you. >> this morning we're two months from to start running. the web hosting duties are being switched from verizon to hewlett-pa a delay in how small businesses can purchase health insurance online. as he toured the country pitching the benefits of the affordable care act, president noted the perks in the law for small businesses. >> if you're a small business that's providing health insurance to your employees, you can get a better deal through these skbanchs. >> reporter: just like individuals, small business owners were supposed to purchase plans through on so-called shop exchanges. the ability to use it has
7:12 am
already been delayed once. >> we will institute the shop component at the end of november. >> reporter: now it's being delayed again, this time till the end of next year. it's working to get the individual users working by this saturday. the administration says that has [ their focus. >> it was important for them to prioritize their functionality. that would enable consumers individually to shop and enroll online in coverage. >> reporter: republicans were quick to pounce on the news. speaker john boehner said it was important for us. they're concerned about what it might mean for them. >> we've had
7:13 am
small business owners have to go to insurance or insurance agents. jeff vinita. >> jeff, thank you. this morning this morning the "uss georgia" took part in a drill. the u.s. navy said the exercises were planned before china's decision. the growing tension now involves ambassador caroline kennedy. >> the united states established its priority over the new zone when it through two b-52 bombers through it. they were outlined by the chinese government over the weekend. it touches airspace claimed by south korea and taiwan and
7:14 am
overlaps with an air defense zone controlled by its rival jachlt at the center of all this is a cluster of tiny islands believed to sit above rich mineral sources. they're call eded senkaku by japan and diaoyu by china. the controversy has thrust caroline kennedy, the new u.s. ambassador to japan into the middle of this dispute just about two weeks into her ambassadorship. >> interlateral actions taken by china undermine security and constitute to change the status quo in the east china sea. this only serves to increase tensions in the region. >> reporter: a spokesman said china allowed the u.s. to fly
7:15 am
through the zone for more than two hours earlier this week and defended its zone. it's the right of self-defense, the spokesman said. it targets no particular country. therefore we hope the relevant countries need not be alarmed or take it personally. the fallout around the zone will likely become the focus of vice president joe biden's trip to japan, china, and south korea next week. for "cbs this morning," seth doane, beijing. we have dramatic new images of this month's devastating midwest tornadoes. now, security cameras at an indiana school show a scene inside look at that as one of the twisters hit. the walls of the gym are ripped open at the middle school in lafayette. debris flew around light fixtures ripped down. no one was at the school. it happened on a sunday.

7:44 am
i'm irish. >> reporter: he's irish but he's been there longer than that dub lick lynn dublin lilt sulgs. so why harwich? >> because it it is birthplace that brought pilgrims to america. >> point blank. >> point blank. it was only a twist of history that put those brave souls there at all. the story goes the mayflower set off from plymouth on england's southwest coast in 1660 on its journey to the new world but sporters say sim harwich was the mayflower's original home port the journey began there. the pilgrims boarded in london, made a couple of stops on the
7:45 am
south coast and returned briefly to pick up people because the sister ship sprang a leak. mayflower was a popular name with more than two dozen sailing the seas back then but there's no doubt its captain christopher jones came from harwich and it was his mayflower. we were shown the town charter dating back four centuries. >> >> it was a twit who married -- >> reporter: twits? >> twits. they connected him. >> in a manner of speaking. >> yes. >> they're pretty serious about staking harwich's claim. >> no mayflower, no thereaftering. >> absolutely. turkeys would be safe. >> reporter: they're hoping to
7:46 am
be put on the map if they can fupt $4 million to turn this pile of oak into a 100-foot vessel in the next three years. they plan to sell places on the voyage maybe to direct descendants of the original pilgrims. >> the question, are you going to be on the maiden voyage? >> definitely not. it's going to feel way too rough. >> reporter: it's a good thing they didn't feel that way or the original may flower might have never set sail. for "cbs this morning," i'm charlie d'agata. >> their claim to fame before this was an oak tree. maybe they need this. >> maybe there could be a happy thanksgiving. a few clouds making their way across our skies right now. but looks like we have a decent day ahead. over the bay, yup, we have some clouds there and that low spinning off the coastline going to continue to track southward so we'll see some occasional clouds and a mixture of sunshine today and the temperatures going to be mild

>> sorry. i didn't know what to do. >> what were you thinking? >> please, just help me get through this. help me get through this. >> wake up. this trip doesn't end when you get back home. you never get off this train. >> this weekend "the hunger games: catching fire" will try to keep its hot streak going. the film brought in more than $161 million in the u.s. alone. $307 million around the globe. but the competition could be heating up as the holidays begin. with us now, tony scott, film critic for "the new york times." tony, good to see you. happy thanksgiving. >> nice to see you. happy thanksgiving to you. >> you receive it. >> it's got better critics. it's a better movie. they switched out directionerors. it's tighter, moves faster and gives you a more satisfying and moving experience. think fans would have gone to see it anyway. this is quite a phenomenon noncoming off of the books and
8:21 am
their popularity and really building and i think driven by the star dom of jennifer lawrence who is really, i think one of the great movie stars of our moment. i mean she's terrific when she goes out and publicizes these moves. she's a great interview guest. and she plays a great heroine that i think they can relate to and identify. >> are you recommending "nebraska" instead because you can't get into "hunger games"? >> i wouldn't say bring your 12-year-olds to see "nebraska" which is a black-and-white move a little bittersweet melancholy about an older guy played by bruce stern. he's an older guy who thinks he's won a million dollars. he got a sweepstakes letter. he's a little out of it and he drink taos much and he thinks
8:22 am
he's won. he convinces his son to drive him to nebraska to pick up his money. they get stalled in his hometown which is this little town in nebraska, and it's this wonderful, very complex, very rich, very funny and also very touching kind of look at small town life. it's about fathers and sons it's about family about aging, about whether you can or can't go home whether you should even bother trying to go home. really good movie directed by alexander payne who i think is one of our best filmmakers. >> so spielberg had that criticism a while back. everyone's making blockbusters and cg and everything else. is that changing at all now >> well, i don't know if it's changing. it's hard to figure out what's going on in the movie business but it does seem to happen that every spring and summer, people are complaining about the blockbusters and sequels and all the action movies and grown-up
8:23 am
people are just more curious audience members do a lot to go and see. but then in the fall -- this happened last year you know when there was spielberg's own "lincoln" and "django" and "argo." this fall we have a ton of really interesting, good movies of all different kinds to see, from "gravity" to "12 years a slave" to "nebraska." so, it does seem like it's possible. i think it's hard sometimes for these movies to find a big enough audience. i think that's really the challenge. they do seem to get made. >> i surrender that i'll ever see a romantic comedy in the theater any time soon, but i want to ask you about three other movies getting a lot of buzz. "the wolf of wall street," "saving mr. banks" and "american hustle." >> yes, these are all movies coming up. we're getting ready for the onslaught of december, you know sort of oscar-aspiring movies and these three are definitely in that category. "wolf of wall street," martin scorsese sort of doing
8:24 am
"goodfellas" on wall street in the financial industry with leo dicaprio. "american hustle" is david o. russell's follow-up to "silver linings playbook" with an amazing cast bradley cooper jennifer lawrence, again, amy adams and a lot of '70s hairstyles. >> amazing outfits. >> and then "saving mr. banks" looks like it's trying to be the kind of family feel-good movie. it's a disney movie about the making of a disney movie with tom hanks as walt disney and emma thompson as the author of the mary poppins book. >> quickly, five seconds, best picture front-runner right now. >> right now, i would say "12 years of slave" is probably still in there, but these movies coming out in december could change it all. >> all right, thank you very much. the dallas cowboys' record this year is no masterpiece, but that doesn't mean fans can't appreciate the finer things. >> in texas, they talk a lot about the art of football, but here at the home of the dallas cowboys, they talk a lot about art. i'm jan crawford. coming up on "cbs this morning,"

8:32 am
cleaned up with only a couple seconds left. however, the apparent soda strategy fizzled. the nets lost. >> that was creative. >> yes, and probably illegal. there's a shortage of pecans depending where you live. the reason, record drought. there's more demand from china which consumes one third of the u.s. crop. the pecan prices are 30% higher at the grocery store. the astronauts do have turkey. it is sliced irradiated, and warmed in a pouch. they also have green bean casserole and freeze dried cornbread dressing. it's all prepared for the mission. it's almost time for the thanksgiving day parade on cbs. kevin frazier and thea andrews of "omz insider" are this year's
8:33 am
hosts and they join us from the front seats. i'm so happy you're both bundled. welcome to you both. >> we're here and ready and like the balloons we're ready to fly. the thanksgiving day parade is a go, and here's the thing. there is concern because if the wind was gusting past 23 miles an hour or there were gusts over 34 miles per hour the balloons wouldn't fly but snoopy is ready to rock and roll with his buddy woodstock on his back and the crowds are out here. we're on sixth avenue avenue of americas, and already big crowds excited to see all these balloons. of course, remember, it's not just about the balloons. there are so many floats and marching bands and performers in this parade. that's what makes it the premier parade on all of thanksgiving day. >> and we're going to have special performances right here on cbs. we have a holiday serenade from the country group lady antebellum. they're heading out on tour but
8:34 am
you're going to see them here first live exclusive with us and also some broadway plays. "cinderella," "first date," and, of course, some special guests. we're going to be really busy at the corner of 53rd and 6th. >> it's a little gusty in. >> a little wind. the balloons are going to look fantastic, they're going fly high, it's going to be a great day and you can see it only on cbs right here. >> i have to ask you. i see all the crowds behind you. when they made the announcement did people go nuts also what are the balloons that people are lining up to see? >> every year there are new balloons. when came to work at 5:00 in this morning there were people already on the street. that's how excite they'd are. it was the happiest group of people i receive at 5:00 in the morning at the temp we've seen. it's really cold out here. we've got about six layers of clothing. snoopy is a big one.
8:35 am
spongebob square pants. >> by the way, that snoopy is the sichbeventh version of snoopy, it's a little different. he ditched the aviator glasses and the doghouse. it's now two guys snoopy and woodstock rolling down the road. >> old school. >> kevin frazier and thea. thea, your hair looks great but i'm sure you're going to need a hat at some point. >> there's a lot of hair sprail holding it, i promise you. >> you can watch it at 9:00 a.m. eastern, 8:00 a.m. central right after "cbs this morning." >> afterward you can watch the dallas cowboys right here on cbs. but their city home is more than just football. also a gallery. jan crawford shows us how the family is inspiring a whole new group of fans. >> reporter: this is what you expect from the nfl. power and finesse.
8:36 am
football, you could say, like an art form. but at the home of the dallas cowboys, here's what you also get. real art by world-renowned artist even on the massive video board. >> disappointing. you yourself. >> reporter: that's called a truism. more than a dozen pop up during a any cowboys game. cutting-edge modern art in a football stadium is the inspiration of jean jones, wife of cowboys owner jerry jones and their daughter charlotte. >> for me, it's the ultimate. >> reporter: you, of course have to say it. only in dallas. whose idea was this? >> i really was passionate about doing this. i wanted to have more than a football stadium. i wanted it to be a great architectural and wonderful gift to the community. >> you realize this is really a
8:37 am
wow kind of venue and we have the opportunity to do something very unique and to blend culture with sports and entertainment, that we should make that leap. and when mother suggested it it was like that's the missing piece. >> reporter: some of the art has a football theme even if you don't realize it. >> this is an incredibly unique piece because these are individual l.e.d.s, and this is an individual expression of art and what he did was actually film our art. he took the live game and translated it into art. if you step back you can actually see the play evolving. >> reporter: and sure enough, there's number 22 emmitt smith, charging down the field just like in the glory days. the newest piece is also one of the biggest statements. it's called "sky mirror," the artist who's known for the beam. sky mirror stands for unlimited possibilities. not a bad message when you're
8:38 am
backing a football team. jerry jones says it's his favorite piece. >> i know enough about it to say it. jones, quit worrying about the art and how about a good blocking offensive line. i know exactly what you're thinking. >> reporter: okay. we weren't going to say that. well, not out loud but when you walk through the stadium, the combination of art and football starts to make sense, especially when you hear about school field trips, children expecting to see tony romo and instead get an introduction to art. >> they see the art on these big walls and then they'll have them go back and duplicate that. then they'll say now let's see your version of what you think the solar system is. >> reporter: one of the first pieces to be installed is called "blue field explosion" by artist gary simmons who painted it just before the stadium opened. >> he came in on the scaffolding, he's scared of heights. as he does it he puts his hands in the paint and throws it on
8:39 am
the medium. he's doing this incredible work while he's chained to this whole construction piece and the music is blaring. i think it's what he felt, you know happens on a field. >> reporter: and that maybe is where for cowboy fans art and football can come together, "an explosion of blue," blowing up a team's offense. for "cbs this morning," jan crawford, dallas. >> it really is some beautiful art. and 1-800-cool piece of information, you can actually get an audio tour through the stadium on mondays and wednesdays so you can see. >> you're dallas native. >> i am. >> very cool. aisle i'll check it out. finding the right line can be child's play. one of the top wine experts richard betts is here in studio 57 around he'll show u house

8:45 am
it fun that's where the scratch and sniff part comes in. >> tells about your background. you were original going to become a lawyer. you were on your way to law school. how did this come about in your life? >> yeah. i was finishing grad school on my way to law school and one afternoon after a very long day in a hot dark roon with a scan electron microscope, i thought, you know what? i need a glass of wine. i went across the street to a friend's wine shop. i didn't know anything about wine but i kind of recognized it. picked it up all ten bucks in my pocket, took it home, poured the glass, and the first sniff -- i have a big nose. that first sniff told me back to milan almost four years ago. i remember where i sat where my friend sat. i said, beth that was really compelling compelling. i think i don't want to go to
8:46 am
law school. i said i want to do food and wine and my friend bobby said you should. so i did. >> grow to school or train yourself? >> you can train yourself. it was important. it was compelling. you needed to stay alive and we don't depend on it as much today as we much did but my dad's great example. he says, gosh i can't smell anything. now he's an expert. he's gone from wine in a box to having a real habit. >> what you do is basically break down red and white wines into major groups. wood, fruit, earth, and other. >> yes. >> how does recognizing or understanding those help you pick a good wine? >> the idea is that alweins can be broken down. if it's a red wine it's going to have predominantly red fruits and predominantly black fruits and what's a good wine? it's the wine you look. it's not the one i tell you. it's the wine that makes you smile. you work through the book and say i lied red fruit, not black so much. i do like oak, not so much when
8:47 am
it's not there. i like thor think thing. if you figure out your preferences, you know what a strawberry smells like and a blackberry. so by saying this is what i like, then we have this really interesting chart that says choose euro intervention. i want the red fruit and the earth. then drink this. >> how do you know what to pair with the food? >> well, that's totally -- my only rule with that is there's really no rules. pair what you like. eat what you like drink what you like. as long as you're smiling that's all that matters. >> vinita has been scratching all morning. the smells are wafting through the studios. it's a very cool idea we haven't seen before. how you do come down on screw caps? >> when we were younger the only thing that came with a screw cap was those big jugs that weren't associated with paz activity in the wine world. today they're okay. you don't need a wine opener. >> as you mentioned your goal
8:48 am
was to change the way americans think about wine. i love that you said wine is a grocery, not at a luxury. as people today are sitting around trying to plan what they're going to have with their turkey. it sounds like you're saying go with what you like. >> absolutely. if it's cheeseburgers and chardonnay, knock it out. >> do cheeseburgers work with chardonnay? >> whatever makes you happy. >> the scratch n' sniff guide is on sale now. tomorrow on "cbs this morning" meet the food scientists behind a new kind of steak. it's called the vegas strip. why it could be called a cash cow for the industry. that's tomorrow. you're watching "cbs this morning."
