10:00 am
race of the weekend. napravnik will ride my loot on saturday. check out this video. snow in kansas city last night forced the royals to postpone their game with the rays, but it also gave the players a great chance to work on their tarp sliding skills. woo! this is "cnn newsroom." i'm jake tapper in washington, d.c. investors on wall street are celebrating and not just because it's friday and cinco de mayo is coming up, but better jobs report is pushing stocks higher. the economy added 165,000 jobs last month. the unemployment rate dipped to 7.5%. alison kosik is at the new york stock exchange. alison, the dow was above 15,000 at one point. how are the markets doing right now? >> it was at 15,000 and a little above that. it's right now bumping up against that 15,000 level.
10:01 am
look, it's still hitting that mark. it's making history. and so is the s&p 500 making history of its own at a level we haven't seen before. and we'd like to watch the s&p 500, jake, because even though it doesn't get all the headlines, the s&p 500 hitting this milestone is actually a bigger deal, believe it or not, because the s&p includes 500 stocks instead of just 30. and all of this happening because of what you said, that upbeat jobs report showing employers added 165,000 jobs in april. unemployment rate dipping to 7.5%. all of that is pushing investors to buy-in. kind of icing on the cake as well as the february and march numbers, those job numbers were revised higher. one analyst puts it this way saying it shows the economy is resilient, just not robust. so the jobs picture isn't quite bright enough to push the federal reserve out of the mix, which means its stimulus is expected to continue. that is helping to push the market even higher. jake. >> wall street likes the jobs report, but what does it mean
10:02 am
for you and your personal economy? ahead this hour christine romans will have the story behind the numbers including a look at where those 165,000 jobs were added in the economy. now to the boston bombings. authorities expect to file a death certificate today. we should soon learn exactly what killed suspected bomber tamerlan tsarnaev. the hearse you see here in this image is believed to have taken his body to a funeral home yesterday. so now the massachusetts medical examiner is allowed to release the official cause of death. a funeral for the 26-year-old suspect will be held in worcester, massachusetts, just outside boston. that's according to the worcester mayor's office. and we're hearing from a law enforcement official who says the bombs used in the attack were built in the apartment tamerlan tsarnaev shared with his wife and little girl. and that the marathon was not the original target of the terrorists plan. that law enforcement source who is regularly briefed on the
10:03 am
investigation says the suspects initially planned to carry out a suicide attack on the fourth of july. deborah feyerick joins us live from boston. deb, what more have we learned about this supposed plan to strike on independence day? and is there any evidence to support that? >> well, right now investigators are looking into this theory that in fact it may have been july 4th, but there's still sort of an absence of hard evidence to suggest that in fact that was their number one target. why they decided to change their plans. initially wi heard reports that they were building the bomb and they built it too quickly. they didn't realize how fast they would be able to build it. so they sort of moved up their plan to attack the boston marathon. people that i'm speaking to say they just don't believe that that's true because of the way they executed it in terms of what they call the trade craft, the way they sort of approached their target points, the time in between the detonations, the way that the whole thing was done pretty methodically suggested
10:04 am
that there was more training involved than, gee, hey, we're done, let's go bomb the marathon. investigators are tracking down hundreds of leads at this point. one just now, actually, jake just now we can tell you up at the university of massachusetts dartmouth, we have investigators on the scene, fbi, atf who are checking out a couple public areas we've just been told. there were reports of loud explosions that had been taking place over the course of a couple months. so they're going to check that out to see whether perhaps it may have been an area where they were detonating or testing the devices. so that's pretty much what we know in terms of the location and the targets. but the folks i'm talking to really do believe that the boston marathon was in fact their intended target, jake. >> deb, we've also learned new details about where law enforcement officials believe the bombs were made. what can you tell us about that? >> well, now they're looking at the possibility that in fact the bombs were built in the home
10:05 am
that tamerlan tsarnaev shared with his wife and their daughter, their young daughter. also dzhokhar tsarnaev spent a lot of time at that apartment as well. bomb residue i'm being told was found both at the kitchen table as well as the kitchen sink and bathtub. we were talking about this earlier, jake, you and i, and that is, look, the bombs -- the ingredients you need to build these bombs are rather crude. the technical to make them successful is a bit different. it's not for example you think of a bomb factory perhaps the attack on the first world trade center, the big vats of chemicals that were needed. these are pretty simple basic ingredients that you can fit in a couple bags, jake. >> all right. deborah feyerick, thank you so much. in california a dangerous situation is getting more dangerous by the minute. several big wildfires are still spreading as the winds pick up. one of them in ventura county near los angeles has burned more than 10,000 acres and threatens
10:06 am
4,000 homes. >> stay until i know that our house is still here. >> as long as our family and our dogs are safe, we can get through this. >> now we're getting those hot long days, winds and the low humidities. and this stuff is just ripe and ready to burn. >> cnn's stephanie elam is long the front lines in ventura county. and chad myers is keeping track of the fires in cnn weather center in atlanta. stephanie, i'm going to start with you. what's happening right now where you are? >> well, jake, right now we can tell you that it's starting to warm up. we're starting to feel the heat coming that is expected all the way up to the coastline here. as you can see we are right on the pacific ocean which makes this fire interesting. visually overnight it was stunning while we were here because as you look right here there's the pacific coast highway that runs along the ocean. you've got some fire trucks coming out right now. and then right off the edge of the hillside over here we watched it burn down and actually jump over the fire -- jump over the pch and towards the ocean. we also were able to see today
10:07 am
some firefighters out there fighting the brush. just around the corner actually we were looking at them making sure that they're putting out fires, and also ensuring that power lines also stay safe. so that was something that we see them doing throughout this region here, jake. >> and how does california make sure it has resources to cover all the fires that sprout up around the state? >> well, you know, it's interesting. just looking at some of these trucks going by right now, you would think that they were all ventura county or los angeles county because of the proximity, but they're not. they're coming from wide ranging areas of the state. some even coming from riverside county, which is pretty far east as well. the way they do this throughout california and it's pretty much a unique system, but they will move fire trucks, troops, bhavr they need to do to get people on the ground to fight a fire in one region. and if another fire sprouts up in their region where they just came from, somebody will move into that territory to help take care of their properties there. so they have a way of covering
10:08 am
each other because as one firefighter told me yesterday, it's always fire season in southern california. and with seven fires burning in california right now overall, they just want to make sure they have all the resources to make sure they can put those fires out, jake. >> chad, what's fueling these fires? and talk a little bit more about how unusual it is to have these kinds of weather conditions in southern california this time of year. >> yeah, lack of rain. what should have been a 29-inch rainfall over the past 24 months was 14 inches. that's less than 50% of what you should have. so that means trees are dead, shrubs are dead, ready to burn. these are live pictures from ktla. i think you don't understand how big these flames are, how hot these flames are until you get right to it. now, what i'm seeing here are shrubs burning, trees burning, that's the story of this fire, jake. we haven't lost homes. now, there are homes that are close to this fire break.
10:09 am
right here they are gets fosz check down, they are bringing helicopters in. they're going to keep going over here. there are homes over here to the left where this fire's trying to get to. so air assets on the way. here's where it all started. here's l.a. we're talking almost 50 miles away right here in camarillo. put this into motion and we'll show you what happened. yesterday, a spark, something right up here near the ventura highway. and as that came in, the sparks started, burned a bunch of these rvs near here. this is camarillo springs retirement area. look how steep this is. this is a mountainous area. wild land fire. an awful lot of just shrubbery out there. and it's all dry, half of it's dead. what we're seeing now where i was just showing you that fire is this area here where there are a few homes. most of it is all the wild land area. you're seeing trees and shrubs burning. i heard a couple reports it's getting close to malibu. let me tell you, it's miles up the coast from malibu. this has a long way to go to get to any real structures where you
10:10 am
see a lot of population. they will get it under control. we go from 90 degrees today to 75 tomorrow and showers and even rain possible on sunday. that's the good news, jake. >> all right, chad. thanks so much. here's what we're working on for this hour, the unemployment rate drops to 7.5%. that's the best rate since december 2008, but hold off on the celebration. it's not all good news. we'll explain. plus, stepping up security in the wake of the boston bombings. how officials at the kentucky derby plan to protect more than 100,000 people. here's a hint, one thing you'll have to leave at home, big purses. also, he called a foul on a soccer player and ended up in a coma. this referee's family is hoping for a miracle after a teenage player punched the ref in the head. that's coming up. 8% every 10 years. wow. wow. but you can help fight muscle loss with exercise and ensure muscle health. i've got revigor. what's revigor?

with odor free aspercreme. powerful medicine relieves pain fast, with no odor. so all you notice is relief. aspercreme. welcome back. we're watching a history making day on wall street. the dow has been bouncing around 15,000. it's the first time it's ever reached that high. the s&p 500 is also in record territory. the markets are reacting to a solid jobs report for april. the economy added 165,000 jobs
10:14 am
last month, that's about 25,000 more than expected. the unemployment rate dipped from 7.6% to 7.5%. good news, right? let's take a closer look. and let's examine what does this all mean for you and your personal economy. christine romans has the story behind the numbers. >> there's probably nothing more important to your money than your job whether you have one, whether you're moving up at it, and whether it's paying well, well enough to buy a house and send a kid to college. this is what we know about jobs today. 165,000 jobs created in the month of april. that is better than expected. and when you put it in perspective, you can see that things have been stronger this year than economists initially thought. something was going on in february. 300,000 plus jobs created in february. and more created in march than we thought. when you average over the past year, 173,000 jobs created on average each month. but, again, it's about your job, right? and whether you have a job that's paying well and that you're moving up at. so let's talk about where the jobs are. retail jobs, 29,000 jobs created
10:15 am
there. wholesale trade and employment, 29,000 jobs. professional and business services, 73,000 jobs. those tend to be the higher paid jobs. we want to continue to see those jobs increase. when you look overall at leisure and hospitality, 43,000 jobs created there. and also in health care, 19,000 jobs, that is a consistent performer for the economy. health care jobs every month. but, again, be careful about wages. there are a lot of health care jobs that pay $19,000 or $20,000 a year, home care aides. there are other health care jobs that pay six figures on hospital doctors, and very highly skilled nurses. there's big differentiation there. overall this is a strong report. this report says that the economy is slowly healing. the labor market is slowly healing. those worries about a spring swoon may have been overblown. you want to see a lot more months like this. 7.5% unemployment, before the recession it was 4.5%. we have a long way to go.
10:16 am
>> all right. christine romans. we have detailed maps for our roads, so why not map the human brain? we'll show you how scientists are looking inside our minds to find the secrets to our brains. at a dry cleaner, we replaced people with a machine. what? customers didn't like it. so why do banks do it? hello? hello?! if your bank doesn't let you talk to a real person 24/7, you need an ally. hello? ally bank. your money needs an ally.
10:17 am
10:18 am
10:19 am
president obama is wrapping up a trip to mexico. he's leaving as we speak. you see those images live of mexico city of air force one. in mexico he met with president enrique pena nieto. president obama touched on business opportunities in his remarks fighting the war on drugs, gun control and comprehensive immigration reform. >> it is critical that the united states recognize the need to reform our immigration system. because we are a nation of laws, but we are also a nation of immigrants. like every nation, we have a responsibility to ensure that our laws are upheld. we also know as a nation of immigrants, the immigration system we have in the united states right now doesn't reflect our values. it separates families when we should be reuniting them.
10:20 am
>> next stop is costa rica where mr. obama's expected to meet with u.s. embassy staff and costa rican president laura chinchilla. president obama's investing $100 million in taxpayer money to map the human brain, but what exactly are scientists looking for? our dr. sanjay gupta takes a tour of a brain map lab at ucla run by dr. arthur toga. >> how much progress in neuroimaging over the last ten years? >> i think it's been amazing. the technology to acquire detailed images of structure and function is unprecedented. we can look at very small lesions, smaller than a millimeter or even smaller in a living human individual and we can relate not only what we see in terms of that person's
10:21 am
anatomy but how it works. >> the function. >> the function. how those cells are interacting with other regions in the brain to allow that person to be -- >> this is pretty spectacular. what are we looking at? >> you're looking at tracks. you're looking at the fibers themselves that connect to a region. it allows us to see what region is connected to where and how much of a connection is there. so when we talk about function like movements and sensation, we generally understand that, but what about the things a little more nebulous, self-awareness, happiness, pain. is this going to help better identify those areas of the brain? >> i hope so. obviously one has to start with a cruder map initially. it's just liking a map of the earth. we create a coordinate system, we find where the continents are. but now with our gps systems we can find specific roads, we can even look up the amount of traffic on those roads. that's a very good analogy
10:22 am
because it holds when we're studying the human brain as well. we have to first create the big map that show us the overall picture of how the brain is wired. then we go down and look at the finer detail. >> what does this mean for the average person? >> i think it's very important for us to undertake a challenge like this because we suffer from a number of neurological disorders, the population is getting older, increased percentage of people with alzheimer's for example. this kind of science lays the foundation for us to look for targeted therapy, and really is instructive in terms of improving the health and well-being of everyone. >> and dr. sanjay gupta joins me now. sanjay, welcome. this reminds me of the human genome project. can we expect similar results? similar successes? >> you know, i think that was a much more discreet sort of project. you remember, jake, it took ten years, it cost several billion dollars and there was a specific goal at the end to map the human
10:23 am
genome. when you talk about mapping the human genome, you're talking about matching 3 billion base pairs, for example. here you have $100 million, so far less money. and there's trillions of neurons in the brain, jake. so this whole idea of mapping the brain, it's in some ways a much more audacious thing. and i think less well-defined. mapping the brain to what end is what a lot of scientists still want to know. we don't really know what some of the specific goals are. >> what do they expect to find? >> well, you know, i would liken this in some ways to when we think about putting a man on the moon, there was an event of putting a man on the moon, but all the other sort of ancillary things we learned from that, how satellite technology works, some of the things we were showing in the piece, those things came about. they weren't necessarily the goal of the program at the time that it was started. and i think you could say similar thing here. they may learn more about how to diagnose alzheimer's disease or things you can detect earlier. they may come up with new treatments as a result of those things. but right now it's about developing new technologies to better image and map the brain.
10:24 am
that's where they're starting. going to see where it goes from there. >> dr. sanjay gupta, thanks so much. >> you got it, jake. if you're heading to the kentucky derby this weekend, big hats, yes. big purses? no. leave your camcorders and coolers at home. there will be heavy security in the wake of boston bombings. that's coming up next. ♪ [ agent smith ] i've found software that intrigues me. it appears it's an agent of good. ♪ [ agent smith ] ge software connects patients to nurses to the right machines while dramatically reducing waiting time.

10:28 am
boston. that's according to the worcester mayor. an uncle claimed the body yesterday. that act allowed the massachusetts medical examiner to release the official cause of death. we expect that will happen some time soon. meanwhile, a law enforcement official tells cnn the pressure cooker bombs used in the attacks were built in the small apartment in cambridge that the dead suspect shared with his wife and child in cambridge, massachusetts. the official also says captured suspect dzhokhar tsarnaev has told investigators that he and his brother decided to attack the boston marathon only a day or two before the event. he says the initial plan was to carry out a suicide bomb attack at boston's massive fourth of july fireworks celebration, but their bombs were ready earlier than expected so they moved up the date. again, that's what dzhokhar is claiming. there will be some changes at the kentucky derby tomorrow because of the boston terror attack. our pam brown looks at what authorities are doing to step up security and keep people safe at the run for the roses.
10:29 am
>> it's one of horse racing's biggest events, the first of the triple crown races, a place to see and be seen. but this year's kentucky derby is happening just weeks after the boston bombings. security at churchill downs now understandably tightened. >> marathon bombing occurred and we were on the phone immediately with our law enforcement partners and had meetings the next day. we had to move pretty quickly because we were going to make any changes, if changes were warranted, we had to get the word out pretty quickly. >> changes were made. in addition to the ban on backpacks in place since 9/11, the new security restrictions include no camcorders, cans or coolers of any size. and women with purses larger than 12 inches will have to leave them at home for the big races. and the estimated 160,000 people going through the gates can expect to have more thorough bag inspections and magnetic wand
10:30 am
searches. >> we hope not a single person that gets through the gate is surprised and trying to bring in something not allowed. >> 1,200 federal, state and local officers will also be out in force, an increase of about 100 since the bombings. >> basically just areas of command. >> but major kelly jones says they're relying on alert spectators to report anything suspicious. >> we get to used things, sometimes. so what we've learned is our folks have to be vigilant, we've got to be vigilant, people have to be the eyes and ears of this community. >> that message seems to be getting through. >> i know if i see something, i'm going to say something. probably more so now than ever before. >> for others, it's still all about the derby. >> this is an event everybody wants to experience, that they look forward to every year and just to come out and have a good time, i don't think it's going to be a concern at all. >> and pam brown joins us now live from louisville. pam, first of all, where's your
10:31 am
hat? i don't see a hat. >> that's a good question. you know, i didn't have enough time to go shopping for a hat unfortunately, jake. >> i would think somebody from -- >> i know. i let a lot of my fellow kentucky down. >> i'm disappointed there's no big hat. more seriously, what is security like there today having been at many of these events, i imagine, is it significantly increased? >> yeah, jake. i grew up in kentucky and coming to the kentucky derby, security's always been tight here especially since 9/11, but this year it definitely feels like security has been stepped up. there is a very large presence of authorities. we see national guard troops, local, state, federal authorities here. there's more bomb sniffing dogs here this year in the wake of what happened in boston just a few weeks ago. you can probably see behind me there's a large crowd here today, around 150,000 people. this is the oaks race, which for
10:32 am
people that don't know it's the race for the fillies, female horses, leading up to the derby tomorrow. this is a trial run with all these new security measures put in place in just the last few weeks. i'll tell you, jake, what sparked the most discussion in talking to spectators here today is the fact that the purse sizes are limited. 12 inches or less. in fact, department stores have rulers on the counters all over available for those women who have had to go back and buy new purses in light of these new measures. >> but no limits on hats, right? that's still okay. it can be as big as the state itself. >> no limit on hats. you've seen quite the array of hat sizes today. >> i'll bet. have you talked to anyone at all who has doubts about going to the event because of these renewed fears post boston? >> yeah, you know, talking to people today, jake, it's definitely top of mind what happened in boston a few weeks ago.
10:33 am
cnn, time and orc did a poll about how people were feeling in the wake of the boston bombings and their feelings about terrorism, there was a slight increase, but overall about a quarter of the people polled said they were less likely to go to a public event like the derby, boston marathon, because of terrorism concerns. so even though people we spoke with say, yes, you know, we were a little bit scared coming to be such a large crowd like today. but overall people weren't letting that fear hold them back. >> all right. pamela brown in louisville, kentucky, thanks so much for joining. a soccer referee is fighting for his life after being punched over a foul. that's what happened. he called a foul and he got punched and now he's in a coma. unbelievable. up next, we'll speak live to the referee's daughter, she says her family is just hoping for a miracle. hoo-hoo. hoo-hoo...hoo-hoo. hoo-hoo hoo.

[ male announcer ] for years, bob took warfarin, and made a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but not anymore. bob's doctor recommended a different option: once-a-day xarelto®. xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem, that doesn't require routine blood monitoring. like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective to reduce the risk of an afib-related stroke. there is limited data on how these drugs compare when warfarin is well managed. no routine blood monitoring means bob can spend his extra time however he likes. new zealand! xarelto® is just one pill a day, taken with the evening meal. and with no dietary restrictions, bob can eat the healthy foods he likes. do not stop taking xarelto® rivaroxaban
10:41 am
without talking to the doctor who prescribes it for you. stopping may increase your risk of having a stroke. get medical help right away if you develop any signs or symptoms of bleeding, like unusual bruising or tingling. you may have a higher risk of bleeding if you take xarelto® with aspirin products, nsaids or blood thinners. talk to your doctor before taking xarelto® if you currently have abnormal bleeding. xarelto® can cause bleeding, which can be serious, and rarely may lead to death. you are likely to bruise more easily on xarelto®, and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. tell your doctors you are taking xarelto® before any planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems. ready to change your routine? ask your doctor about once-a-day xarelto®. for more information including cost support options, call 1-888-xarelto or visit

lot you don't know about the great white north. here's a quick look. >> there's no place like montreal. it is uniquely wonderful in its own way. they insist on speaking french. it does get cold here. any visiting chef here crawls out of town bloated and begging for mercy. but they do things differently here. billions of people come and visit this place all the time, but it feels strangely unspoiled and unexploited. it's always a surprise. if anything truly original is happening in gastronomy right now in north america, a food culture doing things in a completely unique and original way that nobody else is doing. the chefs in montreal are really, really making a mark. but i suggest before you come here that you train for the experience and cut yourself some down time for recovery

it's the biggest weekend of the year for the national rifle association. the group's annual meeting begins today in houston, texas. the nra's theme this year -- stand and fight. more than 70,000 people are
10:51 am
expected to attend the convention. among them, among the most high profile speaking this afternoon include former alaska governor sarah palin, louisiana governor bobby jindal, texas governor rick perry, and former pennsylvania senator rick santorum. observers expect the national meeting to be something of a victory lap since last month the u.s. senate shot down a gun sales background check measure that the nra was firmly against even though it enjoyed widespread support among the public. the tough talk back and forth between the united states and north korea may have cooled off a bit, but the pentagon is still convinced that north korea wants a nuclear weapon, one that can reach targets in america. the u.s. military sent its annual report to congress yesterday describing north korea's nuclear program as ambitious. the polgt does not expect the current north korean leader to stray far from his father's strategy. u.s. leaders had initially hoped kim jong-un would be a reformer when he took control of the country in 2011.

one of the boston bombing suspects, tamerlan tsarnaev, spent mos in chechnya last year, and yet he was able to get back into the u.s. easily even though u.s. officials had been warned that he might be a problem. then there are those friends of the younger tsarnaev brother, now charged with helping one of the suspects, dzhokhar, after the bombing. at least one should not even be here in the u.s. he had visa issues. so what's going on with border protection and the immigration system? is anyone communicating?
10:57 am
>> reporter: more than a decade after the worst terrorist attack in our nation's history, it seems the u.s. immigration system that allowed the september 11th hijackers to enter the kunly legally is still very flawed. some lawmakers question whether tamerlan tsarnaev should have been so easily admitted back into the u.s. after his trip to russia, chechnya, and dagestan last year. after all, in 2011, the russian government warned both the fbi and the cia that they were worried that tamerlan had become an extremist and would be traveling to meet with underground groups. the fbi investigated and found nothing, but should immigration officials have been told more? now another concern. three friends of alleged bomber dzhokhar tsarnaev have now been arrested for their alleged involvement after the boston marathon attacks. 19-year-old dias kadyrbayev, azamat tazhayakov, and robel phillipos all went to school with tsarnaev at the university of massachusetts, dartmouth. two are accused of removing
10:58 am
evidence from tsarnaev's dorm room after the attacks including a backpack containing fireworks and a laptop. tazhayakov and kadyrbayev, both from kazakhstan, were staying in the u.s. on student visas. the only issue -- tazhayakov is no longer a student. tazhayakov returned to kazakhstan in december 2012, according to a u.s. government official, his status as a student at umass, dartmouth, was terminated the next month on january the 4th. and at this point, his student visa should have been invalidated. umass, dartmouth, took the proper steps and provided information into the appropriate system for foreign students that he was no longer registered there, officials say, but customs and border protection never got the message. when tazhayakov returned back to the united states on january 20th, he was granted entry. the department of homeland security says that it's reforming the student visa system to ensure that customs and border protection is provided with realtime updates on all relevant student visa information.
10:59 am
as of january 2012, more than 850,000 foreign students were in the united states enrolled at over 10,000 u.s. schools. tazhayakov, the dhs says, was not a threat at the time. lawmakers are now asking how is it that one of the tsarnaev brothers was allowed back in the united states even with that warning and why was one of their friends allowed to come in here on a bad visa. president obama has promised to find out exactly who knew and who missed what. a high-profile political figure was shot and killed today in pakistan. ali was a prosecutor who was trying a case related to benazir bhutto's assassination in 2007. he was killed, shot dead, in his car in islamabad. the death toll from a collapsed factory in bangladesh has now passed 500 and the recovery work is far from over. hundreds of people are still waiting near the site of the disaster, hoping for news about their missing relatives. the collapse of the nine-story building sparked days of
