LOCATOR: LONDON


The guessing game is almost over.... in
one of Britain's most famous feuds.



Today - a judge is expected to break
the divorce deadlock -- deciding JUST
HOW MUCH of ex-Beatle Sir Paul
McCartney's fortune will go to his
ex-wife Heather Mills.


(cbs video)


PATRICIA HOLLINGS/DIVORCE LAWYER


I CAN TELL YOU QUITE CONFIDENTLY THAT
THIS PARTICULAR JUDGE, MR JUSTICE
BENNETT IS GOING TO WRAP THIS JUDGEMENT
UP SO WELL I WOULD FIND IT QUITE
INCREDULOUS THAT EITHER OF THEM HAVE
GROUNDS FOR APPEAL.


Headlines have put the pay-out at
anywhere from 20 to 120 million
dollars. It's believed the former model
will take away roughly 50 million from
their relatively short 4-year marriage.


The judge will let Sir Paul and Heather
decide how much of the settlement
should be REVEALED. Heather reportedly
wants the divorce details kept secret -
while McCartney is said to be happy to
have them made public.


(STANDUP BRIDGE) CHARLIE
D'AGATA/LONDON'S HIGH COURT


COURT CLASHES ASIDE -- THERE IS ONE
THING THE WARRING COUPLE HAS *AGREED*
ON SINCE THEIR SPLIT -- THAT THEIR
4-YEAR OLD DAUGHTER BEATRICE SHOULD BE
'FINANCIALLY SECURE' FOR THE REST OF
HER LIFE.


NEIL SEAN/SHOWBIZ WRITER


HE MAY RUE THE DAY HE EVER MET HEATHER
MILLS, BUT THE GOOD THING TO COME OUT
OF IT FROM HIS POINT OF VIEW IS OF
COURSE A BEAUTIFUL YOUNG DAUGHTER.


A daughter -- who with a billionaire
father and a millionaire mother - will
see a SUBSTANTIAL trust fund.


The ENTIRE settlement will be only add
up to a fraction of the former beatle's


estimated 1.6 BILLION dollar fortune.


In return - he buys his ex-wife's
SILENCE -- she agrees not to share any
SECRETS about their marriage.

(END SOT) The Fed's rare weekend rate cut is just


the latest effort to prevent the credit
crunch from triggering a full-blown
recession.



The central bank acted after a Wall
Street shocker....Cash-strapped Bear
Stearns forced to sell to JP Morgan
after drowning in a sea of bad debt. A
week ago, Bear stock opened at
60-dollars. JP Morgan paid only 2
dollars a share.



(SOT JORDAN GOODMAN/PERSONAL FINANCE


EXPERT): "BEAR STEARNS IS NOT ALONE BY
ANY MEANS IN THIS PARTICULAR SITUATION.
THESE SECURITIES ARE SPREAD THROUGHOUT
WALL STREET. THERE'S A LOT OF FEAR IN
WHO YOU TRADE WITH TODAY."



The housing collapse and credit crisis
have connected as a one-two punch.
Financial institutions are racking up
multi-BILLION dollar losses when
mortgage investments go down the drain.
And foreclosures have soared as home
prices slump. It's a vicious cycle that
shows little sign of slowing.



(SOT HENRY PAULSON/US TREASURY


SECRETARY courtesy "ABC This Week"):
"OUR MARKETS ARE RESILIENT, THEY'RE
FLEXIBLE. I'M QUITE CONFIDENT WE'RE
GOING TO WORK OUR WAY THROUGH THIS
SITUATION."



Government officials still SOUND
optimistic but they've become
increasingly aggressive. Still there's
only so much they can do. Rate cuts
take a while to have any effect and
some analysts say continuing them will
only fuel inflation and make matters


worse.



(JAMES AWAD\AWAD ASSET MANAGEMENT):
"WHAT YOU NEED TO DO IS LET THE FREE
MARKET WORK AND IT WILL DO IT QUICKLY
AND EFFICIENTLY AND IN A VICIOUSLY
EFFICIENT FASHION WHERE THOSE WHO
DESERVE TO LOSE MONEY WILL LOSE IT."



(oncam)


Despite inflation worries, yet ANOTHER
cut looks likely. The Fed meets again
tomorrow and is expected to slash rates
anywhere from a half to full percentage
point.

(END SOT) The Fed's rare weekend rate cut is just


the latest effort to prevent the credit
crunch from triggering a full-blown
recession.



The central bank acted after a Wall
Street shocker....Cash-strapped Bear
Stearns forced to sell to JP Morgan
after drowning in a sea of bad debt. A
week ago, Bear stock opened at
60-dollars. JP Morgan paid only 2
dollars a share.



(SOT JORDAN GOODMAN/PERSONAL FINANCE


EXPERT): "BEAR STEARNS IS NOT ALONE BY
ANY MEANS IN THIS PARTICULAR SITUATION.
THESE SECURITIES ARE SPREAD THROUGHOUT
WALL STREET. THERE'S A LOT OF FEAR IN
WHO YOU TRADE WITH TODAY."



The housing collapse and credit crisis
have connected as a one-two punch.
Financial institutions are racking up


multi-BILLION dollar losses when
mortgage investments go down the drain.
And foreclosures have soared as home
prices slump. It's a vicious cycle that
shows little sign of slowing.



(SOT HENRY PAULSON/US TREASURY


SECRETARY courtesy "ABC This Week"):
"OUR MARKETS ARE RESILIENT, THEY'RE
FLEXIBLE. I'M QUITE CONFIDENT WE'RE
GOING TO WORK OUR WAY THROUGH THIS
SITUATION."



Government officials still SOUND
optimistic but they've become
increasingly aggressive. Still there's
only so much they can do. Rate cuts
take a while to have any effect and
some analysts say continuing them will
only fuel inflation and make matters
worse.



(JAMES AWAD\AWAD ASSET MANAGEMENT):
"WHAT YOU NEED TO DO IS LET THE FREE
MARKET WORK AND IT WILL DO IT QUICKLY
AND EFFICIENTLY AND IN A VICIOUSLY
EFFICIENT FASHION WHERE THOSE WHO
DESERVE TO LOSE MONEY WILL LOSE IT."



(oncam)


Despite inflation worries, yet ANOTHER
cut looks likely. The Fed meets again
tomorrow and is expected to slash rates
anywhere from a half to full percentage
point.

The obesity epidemic among America's

just don't see the problem.

A lot of parents of overweight children
don't think their kids are dangerously
heavy, and many think they're about the
right weight.


Experts say if the parent fails to
recognize the problem, odds are the
child will too.

A new report finds nearly a third of
antidepressant drug studies are never
published, and nearly all just happen
to show the drug being tested didn't
work.


Even if it's not deliberate, experts
say this is bad news for patients, as
it may lead doctors to make bad
prescription decisions.



(wipevo)


Pregnant women who eat a Mediterranean
diet rich in fruits and vegetables tend
to have children less likely to develop
asthma or allergies later in life.


Eating more than 8 servings of
vegetables and fish more than three
times a week seems to boost the
protection even more.

LOCATOR: LONDON


The guessing game is almost over.... in
one of Britain's most famous feuds.



Today - a judge is expected to break
the divorce deadlock -- deciding JUST
HOW MUCH of ex-Beatle Sir Paul
McCartney's fortune will go to his
ex-wife Heather Mills.


(cbs video)


PATRICIA HOLLINGS/DIVORCE LAWYER


I CAN TELL YOU QUITE CONFIDENTLY THAT
THIS PARTICULAR JUDGE, MR JUSTICE
BENNETT IS GOING TO WRAP THIS JUDGEMENT
UP SO WELL I WOULD FIND IT QUITE
INCREDULOUS THAT EITHER OF THEM HAVE
GROUNDS FOR APPEAL.


Headlines have put the pay-out at
anywhere from 20 to 120 million
dollars. It's believed the former model


will take away roughly 50 million from
their relatively short 4-year marriage.


The judge will let Sir Paul and Heather
decide how much of the settlement
should be REVEALED. Heather reportedly
wants the divorce details kept secret -
while McCartney is said to be happy to
have them made public.


(STANDUP BRIDGE) CHARLIE
D'AGATA/LONDON'S HIGH COURT


COURT CLASHES ASIDE -- THERE IS ONE
THING THE WARRING COUPLE HAS *AGREED*
ON SINCE THEIR SPLIT -- THAT THEIR
4-YEAR OLD DAUGHTER BEATRICE SHOULD BE
'FINANCIALLY SECURE' FOR THE REST OF
HER LIFE.


NEIL SEAN/SHOWBIZ WRITER


HE MAY RUE THE DAY HE EVER MET HEATHER
MILLS, BUT THE GOOD THING TO COME OUT
OF IT FROM HIS POINT OF VIEW IS OF
COURSE A BEAUTIFUL YOUNG DAUGHTER.


A daughter -- who with a billionaire
father and a millionaire mother - will
see a SUBSTANTIAL trust fund.


The ENTIRE settlement will be only add
up to a fraction of the former beatle's
estimated 1.6 BILLION dollar fortune.


In return - he buys his ex-wife's
SILENCE -- she agrees not to share any


SECRETS about their marriage.
