In Depth: Man's best friend looks to take a bite out of bullying

They say that compassion and empathy are the keys to combating bullies.  If that's the case, what better weapon to fight them than man's best friend? 

Under the unique "Mutt-i-grees" Curriculum, dogs are used to help kids learn to stand up for themselves – and for others.

This morning on American Morning, Misty Ginicola, a representative of the "Mutt-I-Grees" curriculum, joins Christine Romans on American Morning with Maya Gant and Mike Lazarre, two student participants in the program at the Saint Martin de Porres Academy in Connecticut.

Winner of Wendy Schmidt Oil Cleanup X Challenge talks about plan to remove oil from water

In the wake of the disastrous BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico last summer, an idea was hatched. Wendy Schmidt, wife of Google CEO Eric Schmidt, and Peter Diamandis of the X PRIZE Foundation decided to challenge scientists and engineers around the world to come up with a better way to clean crude oil off an ocean surface. They decided to call it the Wendy Schmidt Oil Cleanup X Challenge.

They received over 350 submissions, and on Tuesday they named their winner: Donnie Wilson, a member of Elastec/American Marine team from Illinois.

Ali Velshi sits down with Donnie Wilson and Peter Diamandis, who explain the winning submission and discuss the future of American ingenuity.
