They’re called “super sniffers,” “super tasters” or “flavorists.” They are the scientists that make what you eat and drink taste so good.
This Sunday on 60 Minutes
, Morley Safer gets a look inside the factories where flavors are extracted, mimicked, mixed and made mouthwatering – a process that some critics say leads to a dependence on less-than-healthy foods. Preview “The Flavorists:” http://bit.ly/rNoday
Eight months ago, Scott Pelley reported on the unthinkable: a county in central Florida hit so hard by the recession that families were losing their homes and moving into tiny rooms in cheap highway motels.
This Sunday on 60 Minutes, Scott returns to Seminole County and finds that things have gotten worse. Many families have run out of money and, with shelters full, some have moved into their cars – a difficult and even dangerous choice.
And what about their kids? How is their spirit? On this day of Thanksgiving, we think you’ll be impressed and moved by the stoicism and hope of the children Scott met.
It's amazing to see a young lady have such a Positive Influence on so many teenagers!!! I hope Taylor continues to walk the straight line of good morals and values in her career and life style!!!

In his 40-plus years as a 60 Minutes
correspondent, Morley Safer has rarely been flustered in an interview – neither dictators nor druglords can shake his confidence.
And then, in March 1979, Morley interviewed the Muppets’ Miss Piggy for his piece “Backstage at the Muppets,” and suddenly he was not the commanding correspondent we’ve come to know. Watch it here: http://bit.ly/sdtpqU

60 Minutes on CBS News: Christine Lagarde: Facing down worldwide recession - Thrust into the breach during one of the worst economic crises in decades, Christine Lagarde, the new head of the International Monetary Fund, has become one of the world's most powerful women. Lara Logan reports.
If the Congressional supercommittee announces today that it has failed to reach a deal to cut $1.2 trillion from the budget deficit over ten years, some lawmakers will credit or blame anti-tax lobbyist Grover Norquist, whom Steve Kroft profiled last night on 60 Minutes.Norquist has gotten more than 270 members of Congress to pledge never to vote to raise taxes, including all the Republican membe...
60 Minutes on CBS News: The Pledge: Grover Norquist's hold on the GOP - Steve Kroft takes a look at Grover Norquist, the man many blame for holding up the deficit-reduction process because of the anti-tax pledges he has obtained from nearly all the Republican politicians in Washington.
Tonight on 60 Minutes, Taylor Swift explained just how seriously she takes her status as a role model to millions of teenage girls: “It would be really easy to say ‘I'm 21 now. I do what I want. You raise your kids.’ But…every singer out there with songs on the radio is raising the next generation.” Swift, since her debut five years ago, has stayed in the spotlight without a single public misstep – a welcome deviation from the all-too-familiar story of early success gone wrong. Do you think popular entertainers have a responsibility to be role models to their young fans? http://bit.ly/vxEt1c

Grover Norquist founded Americans for Tax Reform during the Ronald Reagan era, as part of Reagan’s Tax Reform Act of 1986. Since then, he has gotten virtually every Republican legislator to sign a pledge, promising never to vote to raise taxes.This Sunday on 60 Minutes, Norquist says it’s all part of branding the Republican party with a clear message: “I vote for the Republican. He or she will not raise my taxes,” he says. “You could…go into the voting booth dead drunk, vote for the 'R' – he or she will not raise your taxes.”Norquist will not yield, even with the possibility of a supercommittee stalemate. Watch a preview of “The Pledge:” http://bit.ly/s6Kbo7

At this stop on her 76-city tour, Taylor Swift
soars over a sold-out stadium in a floating balcony. She is Juliet in her best-selling song ‘Love Story,’ which Taylor wrote at age 17.
But Taylor Swift isn’t always high above the crowd. She loves walking through the audience, shaking hands and hugging her fans – she does it twice in every show, something the editorial director of Billboard says he’s never seen from any artist – ever.

After the other hard-hitting, enlightening stories of how bad things are, at least there's a little light at the end of the tunnel. TS is a national treasure and a truly talented role model for the next generation. Great story!

This Sunday, Steve Kroft profiles anti-tax lobbyist Grover Norquist. Norquist has gotten nearly every Republican politician in Washington, D.C., to sign a pledge not to raise taxes – ever. But as the deadline for the special joint Congressional committee on deficit reduction approaches, some legislators are reconsidering.
Watch 60 Minutes
this Sunday at 7 p.m. ET/PT to hear how Norquist holds them to “the pledge.”
Christine Lagarde is the first female head of the International Monetary Fund, a fact that becomes immediately apparent when she shows Lara Logan portraits of all the past directors of the Fund – all of them men.
Lagarde’s first assignment on day one of her new job: save the world’s economy. Tune in to 60 Minutes
this Sunday at 7 p.m. to learn more about the woman at the center of the battle to contain the European debt crisis.
What a breath of fresh air in very turbulent times.

The screaming, shouting, swooning enthusiasm of the audience at a Taylor Swift
concert reminds you of the Beatles – it’s almost as if she’s a spiritual leader to her young fans, whose parents appreciate Swift’s message: you can be a good girl and still have fun.
