7:03 am
first acting oscars. >> it was host chris rock who stole the show. he took on the lack of racial diversity head on from the opening moments until its closing credits. entertainment tonight co-host kevin frazier is in los angeles. >> reporter: good morning. no way last night's broadcast could be just about the awards. leonardo dicaprio and brie larson took the acting honors and spotlight and surprise winner for best picture but the real spotlight was on the oscars lack of diversity and the show's host chris rock owned the night. >> well, i'm here at the academy awards, otherwise known as the white people's choice awards.
7:04 am
rock wasted actors were white. rock kept the jokes coming even out of a commercial break. >> we are black. >> reporter: the broadcast politically charged atmosphere included more the diversity issue. leonardo dicaprio took home the oscar for best actor and took the opportunity to deliver a message about the environment, a passion of his for more than a decade. >> climate change is real, it is happening right now. it is the most urgent threat facing our entire species. >> i'm the least qualified man here tonight. thank you. >> reporter: vice president joe biden walked on stage to a standing ovation and talked speaking out against sexual abuse. part of his introduction to lady gaga's song "until it happens to you." >> reporter: as the song ended victims of abuse filled the stage.
7:05 am
audience was clear. brie larson who played a sexual abuse victim in "room" hugged stage. "spotlight." >> reporter: tonight's top honor went to a film perhaps the strongest political message. it tells a true store of journalism in "the boston globe." >> this film gave a voice of survivors and this oscar amplifying that voice which we hope is a choir that will resonate all the way to the vatican. >> reporter: the first time a director has won back-to-back years p.m. the night's biggest upset, mark rylance of "bridget of spies."
7:06 am
act dress was alicia vikander. the real star of the show i thought was chris rock. i thought he hit it out of the ballpark. >> we will have much more from the oscars later on this morning. the presidential candidates making one last big push to super tuesday today. a new national poll this morning shows donald trump is supported by 49% of voters leading the republicans. marco leads ted cruz in second place. major garrett, good morning to you. >> reporter: for better or worse, marco rubio has discovered his inner donald trump. hurling personal insults. it is a successful model. for trump one potential downside procures another important conversation about trump, tolerance and the future of the republican party. >> he doesn't sweat because his
7:07 am
tan that he uses. >> reporter: last night at a rally in virginia, marco rubio got a lot more personal in his attacks against donald trump. >> he is always calling me little marco. i admit he is taller than me. he is 6'2" which is why i don't understand why his hands are the size of someone who is@ at 5'2". he has small hands. you know what they say about men with small hands? you can't trust them. >> reporter: trump referred to marco rubio. >> there is something wrong with marco. there is something with him. he is sweating. >> reporter: in the past, trump has retweeted support of messages from white supremacists and even retweeted a quote over the weekend from world war ii
7:08 am
he hesitated when asked about david duke's endorsement of the ku klux klan. >> i know nothing about david duke or white supremacist. i don't know what group you're talking about. you wouldn't want me to condemn a group i know nothing about. >> trump knew enough about duke to say this friday in ft. worth. >> i didn't know he endorsed me. david duke endorsed me? okay. i disavow, okay. >> reporter: marco rubio called trump dangerous to the gop. >> how are we going to grow our party with a noomminee who refuses to condemn the ku klux klan? >> donald trump refused to disassociate himself and condemn white supremacist. every day, it's another thing. >> reporter: ted cruz took to twitter. we should all agree racism is wrong and kkk is abhorrent. trump picked up the endorsement of alabama senator jeff sessions
7:09 am
a blow to cruz. trump invoked his name in the fight against rubio and comprehensive immigration reform. >> thank you, major. in the democratic race, hillary clinton carries the momentum. the latest tracker battleground poll shows clinton big lead in georgia, virginia and texas. clinton scored a decisive win this weekend. she beat bernie sanders by a landslide in saturday's south carolina primary. clinton will hold an event where nancy cordes is this morning. >> reporter: she is leading by 20 points here in virginia in our battleground tracker. it's one of two states a that she is visiting today. those poll numbers help to explain why increasingly clinton is turning her attention away from bernie sanders, training her fire, instead, on the republican candidates. >> i want to debate whoever they put up because here is what they are saying.
7:10 am
oil, trickle down economics. >> reporter: clinton changed her focus after her south carolina blowout. >> tomorrow, this campaign goes national! >> reporter: she won the state's african-american vote by a staggering 72 points. on "face the nation," sanders didn't sugar-coat it. >> we did really, really, really badly with older african-americans voters. we got decimate. >> reporter: tomorrow, he must compete in seven more southern states. the latest cbs news battleground tracker shows him trailing clinton by 24 points in texas and 28 points in georgia. voters there said clinton is more qualified, but they viewed sanders as more principle and hon honest. >> secretary clinton does it a little bit differently. >> reporter: a distinction he tried to draw in oklahoma city. >> if you're going to get paid $200,000 for a speech, must be a
7:11 am
and if it's such a good speech, you got to release the transcript! let everybody see it! >> reporter: clinton campaigned in nashville, a camera caught her can dit reaction when he told her about the latest trump controversy. sanders shared that sentiment tweeting america's first black president cannot and will not be succeeded by a hatemonger who refuses to condemn the kkk. clinton retweeted it. >> some of his supporters say we like mr. trump because he tells it like it is. bigotry is not telling it like it is! >> reporter: sanders is heading to minnesota today, one of a few states where he thinks he can notch a win tomorrow. ironically, even as clinton pulls ahead in the delegate count he is poised to notch his
7:12 am
pulling in $36 million in february. >> nancy, thanks. cbs news political director and "face the nation" moderator john dickerson is in washington. here we have all of this trading of insults and more aggressive campaign against trump. but the question remains -- will the race change until people stop dropping out? >> well, right or, you know, one of the things we saw in our battleground tracker even if the other candidates who are not donald trump start dropping out, whoever is left doesn't get that much more of the vote to really overtake trump. so we are going to have to see what happens when the voters get in the booth and start deciding what they are going to do to see if there is anything to stop trump. at the moment, this race to the bottom in the back and forth between the candidates hasn't seemed to have hurt him. >> rather than a campaign of ideas has become a campaign about mussolini and kkk and the size of a candidate's hands. what is going on in the national
7:13 am
may affect the party's future and electoral chances in other races? >> once you're talking about mussolini you're in dangerous territory than makeup. these are repugnant ideas that the republican party stands very far apart of and the difficulty for donald trump even though he dissed about david duke on friday when he was asked by jake tapper on cnn about this, he seemed to be sort of unable to immediately denounce the kkk and white supremacist. this should not be difficult and gives support to those saying he is playing footsy with the ugliest ideas out there. >> a debate on thursday, a lot of people thought marco rubio did very well in. what is chris christie looking for? do you see this possible vp ticket for donald?
7:14 am
i think it was a chance for chris christie to get back in the story a little bit after his poor showing in new hampshire and dropping out of the race, because he really ran on things, chris christie, that donald trump doesn't believe in and said things about trump and his lack of experience that are contradicted by what he said in supporting him ultimately in the end. so it's helpful as you mentioned for donald trump to have an endorsement from somebody like that in a blue state. so it was good for the news cycle but i think other than that, donald trump is off on his own and got his own thing going. whether a place for christie in a trump administration there probably is in some possible way. >> john, thanks. our team will bring you super tuesday results in prime time and our coverage begins at 10:00/9:00 central on cbs. a soldier accused of killing his wife and a police officer is expected to face a judge today.
7:15 am
ronald hamilton shot and killed officer ashley guindon on saturday. it was her first day with the prince william county police department in virginia. jeff pegues is at the court where hamilton's arraignment is scheduled to take place. jeff, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. ron hamilton will be in a courtroom today. not working at his job in i.t. at the pentagon joint staff services center. on saturday, investigators say he got into a heated argument with his wife and first to roll up was a rookie officer and military veteran. ashley guindon was just sworn in and on her first official shift, that's what happened. with bagpipes ringing and hundreds gathered on sunday to celebrate fallen police officer ashley guindon. >> recognize that we will continue one step at a time in honor of ashley. >> reporter: some covered a police car in flowers, while
7:16 am
where she died. >> she had been through so much with the marines and to have this happen over something so stupid. it's so sad. >> reporter: guind don was serving her first shift died. a day earlier she was sworn in at the prince william police department where she had once interned. the department tweeted out this picture with the message, be safe. according to reports before deciding to become a police officer in 2015, guindon spent nearly eight years in the marine corps reserves. police say ashley, along with two other officers, arrived at ronald hamilton's woodbridge home saturday night on a domestic disturbance call. >> they approached the front door of the home and the subject inside the home opened fire, striking three officers. >> reporter: the pentagon staff sergeant allegedly shot and killed 28-year-old guindon and
7:17 am
david mccown and 31-year-old jesse hampton before surrendering to police. during the search of the home, police found the body of hamilton's wife crystal. authorities also discovered the couple's 11-year-old son unharmed. >> the wife was able to contact the police officer, however, before our arrival, she was shot and killed allegedly by the accused. >> it's always been a peaceful neighborhood where everybody get along with everybody. >> reporter: neighbors of hamilton say they are shocked by his violent behavior. >> he was a good guy, like a gentle giant. >> reporter: hamilton, who had been working at the pentagon since 2011, faces capital murder charges. if convicted, could spend the rest of his life behind bars. as for the two injured officers, they have a combined 19 years on the force and they are both expected to make full recoveries. charlie? >> thanks, jeff. the temporary cease-fire in syria appears to be holding largely but the united nations
7:18 am
have died from starvation during the civil war. elizabeth palmer is in holmes, where residents halt in fighting will bring a lasting peace. elizabeth, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. well, this partial cease-fire is holding. it has to be said pretty long odds. the position has officially complained to the united nations of numerous violations by the syrian army and 26 russian air strikes. but for civilians in areas that are quiet, this patchwork truce offers relief and a glimmer of hope it might grow into a broader and more lasting arrangement with monitors and designated safe zones. especially in neighborhoods like the old city here thoroughly destroyed by years of fighting but now back in government hands and quiet. life is starting to return to the ruins.
7:19 am
the partial truce is also a rare bit of good news to the thousands of homeless syrians who were forced out of their towns and villages by fighting and who know want nothing more than to return. the united nations now wants to take advantage of this pause in the fighting to deliver aid to 150,000 people in various parts of syria. and they have also announced a new round of peace talks starting a week today. >> elizabeth palmer, thank you. a cyberbreach targeting taxpayers is far worse than thought. ahead a good morning to you, 49 degrees right now and not a cloud in sight as we look towards downtown raleigh. now, temperatures elsewhere 50 in durham, 49 in littleton, also 49 in fayetteville while raeford and pinehurst at 48 degrees.

if you have moderate to severe ulcerative colitis or crohn's, and your symptoms have left you with the same view, it may be time for a different perspective. if other treatments haven't worked well enough, ask your doctor about entyvio, the only biologic developed and approved just for uc and crohn's. entyvio works by focusing right in the gi-tract to help control damaging inflammation and is clinically proven to begin helping many patients achieve both symptom relief as well as remission. infusion and serious allergic reactions can happen during or after treatment. entyvio may increase risk of infection, which can be serious. while not reported with entyvio, pml, a rare, serious brain infection caused by a virus may be possible. tell your doctor if you have an infection, experience frequent infections, or have flu-like symptoms, or sores. liver problems can occur with entyvio. if your uc or crohn's medication isn't working for you, ask your gastroenterologist about entyvio.

>> reporter: smith beat out lady gaga's nominated song from a documentary called "the hunting ground" about alleged sexual assaults on college campuses. the performance brought some to tears and touched the revenant director. >> i have a 20-year-old girl in college and, ultimately, i think about that. as a father to see that crisis that still happening in colleges and the pain it creates and how powerless than they can be, i think that song was very, very moving. >> reporter: it was a magical moment. leonardo dicaprio has a record to brag about. when he collected his statue it collected over 300 tweets and. beat that one that selfie that ellen degeneres took.
8:05 am
not inclusive, what about the show? >> reporter: you know, i got to tell you, i thought that chris rock and also producer hudland did a fantastic job from survivors of sexual violence to the lgbt community and racial diversity. the show covered a lot of ground and there really wasn't a wasted moment. there were skits about black history month celebrating jack black and lots of jokes. even the music that was played seemed to have a message. carrie washington walked out to the theme from mahogany which starred diana ross. there was shack. even a section. paul mccartney wrote the songs in the '60s and he liked to for beautiful black woman. and clear!

women made up 61% of democratic primary voters in
8:13 am
according to cbs exit polling. unmarried women compromised a bigger percentage of female voters than their married peers. new york magazine writer rebecca traisster has a new book "all of the single ladies." but writes the following. the book is published by simon and schuster, a division of cbs and we will talk to rebecca in a moment. first we wanted to see her findings in action and so we spoke to unmarried women on their views on dating and their complete. >> i'm single. not married now. so i roll with it. >> very single right now. >> i'm in a four-year relationship. >> i am single. >> i'm single. >> another thing, i've been
8:14 am
talking big plans right now. >> every single person asks do are you dating? right one. >> i'm not thinking about married. i don't think i really want to. >> i think i would be devastated if any get married. >> thinking about career goals first. >> i want to have enough time for both, like, for home life and a work life. >> i will always choose my of the day. >> my career is really important. then i can't have a father if i can't support them. >> pushing myself professional as much as i can is way more of a priority. >> i don't think thebiological clock has hit. >> five years i plan to marry. i plan to marry rich, actually! >> the key to feeling complete is being my truest and most confidence person. >> you have to love yourself to be able to be married and love
8:15 am
>> rebecca traisster, good morning. wow! i know you spent five year researches and putting this book together. what is interesting you found women choosing to be independent, unmarried before they are married. you say it's a mast behavior. what does that mean? >> even though it leads to a unprecedented economic it's not a politicized action. one said we want to prioritize career. some we think of that liberating and revolutionary but mostly the pattern. it used to be between 1890 and 1980 the marry age was 20 and 22 and now it's 27. it's a new pattern for adult female life that marriages happen later and maybe not at all. >> in 1970, here it was 23 and
8:16 am
>> how is that changing us, meaning the general society? >> changes everything the way the nation works. it changes. our government and our social policy and civic institutions are built with one kind of sort of citizenry pattern in mind and the hetero marriage. not the way the works any more. tax policies and housing policies and schools let out at 3:00 in the afternoon and have big summer vacations! the assumption there is some number of our population going to be home to take care of those children! the assumption they are always women. >> does it change opportunity and pay equity? >> absolutely. if you have a longer period and women are earning on their own, they are less likely to pay as big a toll as they have historically when they have entered marriages at the beginning of their lives and become sort of automatically dependent on their husband.
8:17 am
>> right. >> charlie asked how it changes us. election right now. >> yes. well, in 2012 unmarried women were 23% of the electorate. >> huge! >> a quarter of the electorate. they vote very left. they vote consistently left. they voted for barack obama 67-31 over mitt romney. so -- because they require a new set of social policies, they are going to have a tremendous so far they have been voting left for bernie by some number, especially in the predominantly white early states but almost certainly going to vote for a democratic candidate in the general election. >> seeing that in states across the country? >> absolutely, absolutely. >> not the presidential level? >> yes, unmarried women vote democratic. they require a whole new set of social policies that democrats are more likely to be behind. >> so what about men too? men are, at the same time, marrying late? >> yes, they are. and the population of single men is growing. one of the differences is that historically men have always
8:18 am
independent lives. they have been more easily able to earn their own livings and be economic independent. that is relatively new for women. as far as being able to have that kind of social independence and have it be a norm rather than a scandalous or pitiable sight. >> i like you said this is not the first time women have had a huge impact on our society. >> in the 19th century so many men went west for exploration and killed during the civil war men on the east coast and huge population of unmarried women. a lot of these women whose lives suddenly weren't given over to the lives of wifeliness and motherhood put their effort toward the suffrage and teaching.
8:19 am
many of those pioneers and reformers were unmarried women or unconventionally married women. >> concentration of the major institutions in america? >> absolutely. it's happening. you see unmarried women rising in politics. we have so few women and so few women of color in politics and you see unmarried women and donna edwards running for senate in maryland and others. another one running for california in the senate. you see single women rising and they will be representing a population that is changed from everything we have ever seen before. >> rebecca, it's really fascinating! thank you on the book. >> thank you. >> all of the single ladies goes on sale tomorrow and rebecca will answer your questions now on our facebook page of "cbs this morning." alternative to the academy awards sends a message. ahead, the winners of the all

expressed concern about high suspension rates for african american students versus white students. the superintendent says they'll be aimed at rewarded students with positive behavior rather than focussing on punishing misbehavior. things shaping up to be quite beautiful today. >> good morning to you at home. let's go ahead and start off with a live picture out at the airport some of the first planes getting ready to taxi down to the runway this morning. 52 degrees and not a cloud in sight as we start off our monday morning. and we were watching this pretty distinct lines of showers back to our west but over the past three hours it's frizzled out and that's good news up to our north. here we are going to stay on the dry side. so let's talk temperatures 52 in durham, raleigh and louisburg, 53 already in clinton. so that's an indicator that the afternoon will be well above where we should be 68 our high today and tomorrow.

is going to sneak in on wednesday and our second chance for rain this week is going to arrive on friday. that's the latest look at your 7-day forecast. good morning, everyone. a few incidents to tell you about this morning but overall not a whole lot going on on your traffic map. we do have a couple of wrecks that i want to make you aware of one on western boulevard at varies sit tee drive that's tying up traffic another one on i-40 eastbound at wade avenue so traffic along wade avenue rolling at about 30 miles per hour. so a little slow going. keep that in mind as you make your way into work and also on the fortify construction zone we have an accident on 40 eastbound and 299. other than that we've got okay looking conditions going on around the area at the current moment. u.s. 64 on 540 we're looking at about a 16-minute drive.
8:28 am
boulevard, 440 will take you ten minutes. if you're heading into the westbound loops that's where you are going to see some of your slow downs i-540 to u.s. 64 to glenwood avenue it will take this morning. and then the clayton bypass to u.s. 1 on 40 will take you about 16 minutes this morning. have a safe drive into work this morning. let's take a look outside right now at the fortify construction zone normal traffic volumes right now, be sxafrl we'll have more updates come up in about
8:29 am
they do have a time-out and decide not to use it. curry on top! bang!
8:30 am
with 0.6 remaining! >> these type of spectacular shots from golden state's steph curry are becoming commonplace. less than a second left in oklahoma, this shot, warriors night. >> i saw about the tweets on saturday night and said tune in. the thunder up big. i thought they would never win this game but the comeback was unreal! the shot! >> steph curry broke his own nba reason for threes a season. he has now 288. >> with more than 20 games left in the season! extraordinary! he's on a different plane right now. this half hour, did chris rock's oscar jokes go too far? we will ask "the new york times" wesley morris about his social comedy and whether it's basing a backlash. a woman is celebrating her
8:31 am
we will see how scientists uncovered the astronomical analogy. time to show you some of the morning's headlines from around the globe. buzz aldrin saying we will get to mars by 2040. he believes a staging base on the moon would be needed. the seattle times reports that starbucks plans to open its first shop in italy next year. starbucks hasn't been as self successful in italy than other nations. a man busted for allegedly selling fake hamilton tickets. he is accused of selling two bogus tickets to the hit musical for $175 apiece to a craigslist. he was arrested when the woman's boyfriend set up a sting with
8:32 am
same tickets to him. jada pinkett-smith and will smith boycotted last night's ceremony after the nominations were introduced. rock took a jab at them. >> jalen boycotting the oscars is like me boycotting rihanna's panties! i wasn't invited! oh, that's not an invitation i would turn down. but i understand -- i'm not hating. i understand you're mad. jalen is mad and her man will was not nominated for "concussion." i get it, i get it. i get it, i get it. you get mad. it's not fair that will was this good and didn't get nominated! you're right! it's also not fair that will was paid $20 million for "wild, wild west" okay?
8:33 am
winners this morning who are trophies. mad max and spotlight and revenant took home of the most award last night. mad max led the pack with six. >> the oscars have been under fire since no minorities were nominated in the second straight year. chris rock didn't stop there. >> i'm here at the academy awards, otherwise known as the white people's choice awards. you realize if they nominated a host, i wouldn't even get this job! so y'all would be watching neil patrick harris right now. >> wesley morris and elena are here this morning. how did chris rock do? >> i thought he did great. we don't want him to be comfortable. we want him to push the boundary.
8:34 am
>> yeah. >> you don't hire him to just be nice to everybody. i think it's interesting that he managed to do a lot of things, like he went after the jada pinkett-smith and will smith boycott or their not attending. he really wanted to keep the focus on there not being nominees of color, while also pointing out the fact that the racism -- or the lack of inclusion is pervasive, like he wouldn't get the job irnl. >> heeither. he is providing a context when he gave a historical context for the idea of boycotting. >> both of you gave him straight a's? >> no. >> no. >> i just want to mention one more thing i thought he did was brilliant make the point about there being black oscars and why the gender categories are still in force. i've been saying this -- i wanted to write a story about
8:35 am
years, the grammys no longer have gender categories. i want to know what would happen -- i think it would change things a lot in terms of how we talk about these things if you eliminated the gender category. >> one of the reasons we continue to have them is women don't tend to lead movies in the same way men do. most of the oscar nominated movies are the story of a hero on a quest. >> i will bet you anything, stuff would change if you just made it support -- ten supporting actor nominees and ten best actor nominees. >> robert de niro says i don't need to slow down my acting because of merle streep. >> not at all. >> not at all. >> you would have a really interesting conversation when those nominations came out, you know, in january and it was 20. >> what did you like or not like about chris is my question. >> i thought something he did either repeated the same jock that he did when he hosted the
8:36 am
where he did a video bit where he went to a movie theater in a black neighborhood. the last time he hosted it was magic johnson theater in harlem. this year he went to compton. >> there is controversy he wasn't there. >> oh, really? >> yes. he asked movie-goers if they had seen some of the nominate films and the sort of broad answer was no. >> yes. >> it was funny when he did it the first time. >> it was brilliant the first timt. >> but coming back to it, it maybe was a little bit weak from a comedy point of view. >> let's talk about leonardo dicaprio. he used his speech to make a larger point about climate change. good thing? >> oh, absolutely. i think he has been such an actitist for environmental causes that would you be surprised if he didn't make that point. >> that is very, as i was saying last night, on brand for leo or leonardo dicaprio because i
8:37 am
>> did he it smartly? >> yeah. i would have been surprised if he hadn't done it. he has been trumpeting these issues for year. they are real. >> it was a night when a lot of people called out causes that were bigger than the show he themselves which i thought was interesting. it was a moment where people taking the time to use this platform to say this is not just about me winning an award. look at vice president biden and lady gaga putting a call out about stop sexual abuse or the diversity issue obviously. >> the production itself brought out these sexual survivors or these abuse survivors and i thought that was really powerful. >> that said, wesley, you worked in boston and i worked in boston as well. >> yes. >> i worked -- >> the globe. >> you worked at the "globe" which this story is about. "spotlight "spotlight" raced out to the early lead and backed off. this was a little bit of a
8:38 am
it wingcame down to three movies. this was -- i mean, when you think about it it's kind of a no-brainer. it's the most important of those, you know, quote, important of those three movies. it's really well made. >> great to see investigative journalism -- >> cheering at home. >> the least divisive between the revenant and that. >> but the narrative also was that sylvester stallone will win for "creed" as best supporting actor? >> people thought he had the edge. and mark rylance was a surprise of the night. even if you think it's a done deal, all of these, you know, front runners are going to win there is usually a surprise that often comes in the supporting categories and to see somebody like rylance honored for the theater actor, honored to
8:39 am
performance than severlsylvester stallone did, i think is nice. >> one final thing to say it reminds me to watch the oscars, i mean, good actors, how many good arks we have and really are people out there who do what they do extraordinarily well. >> yes. no, it's great. one thing i will say about this so-called diversity issue is i don't know who was booking the guests or who said no, but all your actors of color came from tv. they were either abc employees or from some other realm of entertainment. very few of them were american. it was just an interesting optic. >> a subtext that other streams of entertainment are doing it better perhaps than movies. >> here they are to give movie awards to people who -- >> served -- >> yes. >> thank you for being here. >> thanks for having us. >> great to have you here. >> thank you both. you can consider today a gift
8:40 am
jamie wax explains why it's all a matter of time. >> coming up, ever wonder why we squeeze an extra day into february every four years? this leap day ahead on "cbs this morning." 52 degrees on this monday morning as we look towards downtown blue skies here in raleigh. 52 in louisburg, 54 in henderson, 55 in south hill. good morning pinehurst you're now at 54. so your 7-day forecast high today of 68 and just as warm tomorrow keep in
8:41 am
year is actually 59 degrees. first tuesday new scratch-off tickets from the north carolina education lottery it's crazy out here. monday, wednesday, thursday, friday, saturday, sunday. it's tuesday! tuesday! very first tuesday, tuesday t-t-t-tuesday, tuesday first tuesday
8:42 am
us-day! it's big news tuesday! it's scratch-off you tuesday! tuesday!
8:43 am
8:44 am
if you're waking up a little groggy from your oscars party, you may not have noticed that today is a leap day. but what exactly does that mean? jamie wax takes us through times loophole. >> reporter: good morning. that's right. every four year, we have to squeeze an extra day into february. except we don't add an extra day every four of that years, it's divisible by 100 unless it's divisible by 400. in that sounds, confusing it is! we started to dig into leap years and figure out what it's
8:45 am
special leap day birthday embrace the latter. but why does daisy's birthday only come around once every four years? >> reporter: do you know why we have a leap year? >> no. >> no. >> probably something about the sun? >> to do with the seasons and global warming. >> i don't know. el nino? >> reporter: we decided it might be best to consult an expert. here is theoretical futurist michio kaku. why do we have a leap year? >> you go around the sun is 365 days is what we learn in school, no? mother nature made it 365 hours plus five hours and 49 minutes
8:46 am
that means that every year, we have to compensate for one quarter of a day. so after four years, we have to add one more day. >> reporter: when did we figure out the need for this extra day? it was way back in 46 b.c. julius caesar realized the calendar they were going after wasn't working. together they realized what the egyptians had discovered we need an extra day every four years to stay on track, so he instituted the julien calendar. but even that wasn't quite right. see? the solar year is actually only .242 days longer than the calendar year and not an even.25. when we add a full day every four years, we are left with a surplus of roughly 11 minutes every year, and that can start to add up. so, finally, in 1582, pope gregory 17th fixed the glitch
8:47 am
still follow today. how is it different? i'll let michio kaku explain. >> 11 minutes difference in one year's rotation builds up. and that is why the pope had to intervene and say we have to tweak the julien calendar one more time. so, for example, in the year 1600, that is divisible by 400, there was a leap year, but in 1700 and 1800 and 1900, no, no leap year. then the year 2000 there was a leap year. >> yes. >> reporter: luckily, we have digital watches to account for all this. >> this particular watch has a wheel in it that turns run revolution every four years to accommodate the extra day. >> reporter: someone engineered a wheel that turns once every four years? >> yes. >> reporter: many of us have to adjust the date on our watches at the end of every everybody but this one does that for you.
