We are kicking off the show today in snowy England, where extreme winter weather conditions are paralyzing large parts of the country.
We will take you to other parts of Europe where conditions have forced the delay or cancellation of flights.
Also today, Errol Barnett will tell us about the launch of Google's push to enter the mobile phone market. Could Nexus One be the next iPhone? Or even threaten the iPhone's market share?
And- we will speak with our Nic Robertson about reports that the man who killed seven CIA agents and a Jordanian military officer was a Jordanian double agent. What does this say about the Al Qaeda's infiltration into intelligence agencies in the Middle East?
In sports, we will bring you the latest on the a French court's reversal of Flavio Briatore's lifetime Formula One ban. What will this mean for the sport?
Plus, on the lighter side of life, a controversial website is in the news today. The dating site beautifulpeople.com, which claims to only match good-looking singles, has removed thousands of members from its database because they gained weight over the holidays. Too fat for internet dating? I thought the internet was the one place you didn't have to worry about your weight. What is the world coming to, I ask.
We'll also have all the latest from the world of business and more winter weather forecasts with Guillermo.
