7:39 am
potential vulnerability here? >> that's exactly it. when you think about things being run on the national level, you have at least one, you know, system of hardware and and i.t. practices to follow. some will do it better than others and then you have tons of officials who have log-in information, you know, e-mail, password, user names that could get compromised in other ways that they just click on the simple phishing e-mail which is about the lowest hack you can possibly do. >> thank you so much. good to see you. and new concerns about panic in crowded places in an era of heightened security ahead how to prevent crowds flu 'll be right .

% good morning to our viewers in the west. it's tuesday august 30, 2016. welcome back to "cbs this morning." more real news ahead including two judges who share much more than just a profession. he lives every saving gift. but first, here's today's eye opener at 8:00. >> a close friend of abedin's tell me this separation had been brewing for a while and the two had been living separate lives. >> what do you make of donald trump suggesting national security could be at risk? >> i don't personally see it. people will be watching this and think the democratic nominee's top aide is married to someone who, you know, does some pervy things on the internet.

hillary clinton's lead is shrinking. the weekly survey out this morning shows clinton six points ahead of donald trump 48-42. she led by eight points a week ago. >> clinton's long-time aide huma abedin says she is separating from her husband, former congressman anthony weiner, after another reported case of his sexting. now, his first sexting scandal forced him to resign from congress more than five years ago. the "new york post" published this photo yesterday that weiner reportedly sent to a sexting in his underwear with his toddler lying next to him in bed. nancy cordes has covered the clinton campaign since it began and rejoins us this morning. nancy, at this point, at this hour, how is the clinton campaign responding? >> well, hillary clinton herself has had no response at all. they view this as a personal matter. certainly there's a lot of sympathy for abedin and everything she's gone through not just the past couple days
8:03 am
years. they are pushing back at this notion of donald trump that perhaps abedin may have shared classified information with her husband. they say there's no indication that she or any other top clinton aides gave information to their spouses. >> nancy, huma also is in the middle of clinton's e-mail troubles. what do you make of her future? >> well, i think as far as hillary clinton is concerned she can have any future that she wants. she's extremely close and loyal to the clintons. she has been at hillary clinton's side for 20 years. she ul headwinds if clinton tried for example to appoint her to a position that required congressional approval. there are many republicans in congress who are concerned about abedin's position when she was at the state department when she was getting paid at one point simultaneously by the state department, the clinton foundation and a consulting firm tied to the clintons. they say that while that was allowed that it blurred ethical lines when there really should have been a bright line between
8:04 am
>> nancy, there is a front page story in "new york times" today about how hillary clinton and donald trump are preparing for the first debate on september 26th, with hillary clinton's campaign consulting psychologists about how to get under donald trump's skin. what else have we learned about debate prep? >> well, one thing we know is that they are trying to figure out who can best play donald trump in debate prep. he's a pretty unusual character. and ironically the person who might posy play a brash, outspoken, unpredictable new yorker, is anthony weiner. though i don't think he's going to be invited to any debate prep sessions any time soon. beyond that she's boning up on policy. we saw back in 2012 even president obama who should have had all this information at his fingertips suffered a little bit in the first debate because he didn't prepare enough. >> all right. nancy, thank you. well, donald trump is advertising tomorrow's immigration speech this morning.
8:05 am
i said that i was going to build a great wall on the southern border. and much more. end quote. his campaign is targeting hillary clinton's immigration plans while his policy has become unclear. in an interview last night trump's campaign manager kellyanne conway refused to clear things up. >> he will talk about the 11 million as he said on a different network last week could be 30 million, could be 2 million, we don't know, but look, we don't know what actually happens when you enforce a law because nobody does in washington. they just n >> why can't anyone in the campaign answer whether he's still in favor of deportation or not. >> i've said many times. he hasn't talked about that in a very long time. >> so is he in favor or against it? >> he's not talked about that for a very long time. we'll have to wait until wednesday. >> you're not answering the question -- >> but here's the thing. you never have -- the reason you don't invite robbie mook on the show, hillary clinton's campaign manager, is because they don't talk about issues, they talk about us.
8:06 am
kellyanne conway said hillary clinton's immigration plan would lead to total open borders. a trump campaign released an ad hitting her on the same issue. >> getting to stay collecting social security benefits, skipping the line. our border open, it's more of the same but worse. donald trump's america -- >> writes that the ad, quote, creates a misleading comparison saying that under hillary clinton illegal immigrants convicted of committing crimes get to stay. in fact,nt would deport violent criminals, terrorists and anyone who threatens our safety. well, facebook has taken down a fake news story in trending section days after removing cuban editors from that department. the false headline says fox news exposes traitor megyn kelly, kicks her out for backing hillary. the company announced friday it would no longer require people to write descriptions for trending topics. earlier this year facebook's

8:14 am
incredible friendship that started without any judgment. >> oh. >> oh. >> reporter: there were plenty of hugs here to greet 46-year-old judge derek mosley. >> it's good to be back. let's do some business. >> reporter: as he retook the bench. >> all rise. >> reporter: he has one person to thank, 58-year-old judge joann in me, i can feel, i can actually touch inside me that keeps me alive. >> reporter: in 2014 it became clear mosley's kidneys were failing. doctors diagnosed him with instage renal disease. >> i was on daily dialysis. >> reporter: what did the doctors tell you in terms of the likelihood of you getting a kidney soon? >> yeah, well, soon was five to six years. >> reporter: since 1991, the number of people waiting for
8:15 am
number of donors is only up 117%. the need is especially great among african-americans who make up 13% of the population but account for more than a third of all patients waiting for kidneys. eiring didn't want her friend to wait, so she stepped up to see if she was a match. >> i would like to think that people would do whatever they can for their friends. and i don't feel like i'm a hero. this i up. >> reporter: turns out eiring, who is half mosley's size, had kidneys that were a perfect fit. a reminder that it's not about what's on the outside but on the inside. >> i had joked all along to the doctors, don't be fooled by my size, i have big feet, big bones, pretty sure i have big organs too. it was kind of a joke we all had. >> and it was a huge kidney. >> hands inside the moving
8:16 am
transplanted that huge kidney last month. >> all right. go get em. >> reporter: it's already allowing mosley to spend more time with his two daughters and life, while deepening his friendship with his fellow judge. i'd go one step further, sounds like you're family. >> we're family, yeah. and i think that's people know we get caught up in the fact that some people don't associate with other people because of their race or what have you, but when it comes down to it inside we're all the same. one hear kidneys. the smore you interact with people that are different the more you learn and grow as a person. that's the diversity that makes us great. i just think people need to embrace that more. >> reporter: judge mosley says he expects judge eiring to keep a close eye on his diet while here at work because he said she wants to make sure he keeps her kidney -- well now his kidney, healthy. josh. >> seems fair.
8:17 am
she is a hero. that's a beautiful, beautiful thing. >> i got to tell you there's no other city that deserves a story like this more than milwaukee. we just did a story on it a couple weeks ago a study out shows it is still america's most segregated city. >> milwaukee is? >> so when you see a story like this, there's hope. >> bonds. one kidney at a time. >> great story. ahead, amazon's new 30-hour workweek, good or pr move? that's next. we'll ask melody hobbs. lly hops.

the latest experiment on amazon has nothing to do with the way your packages delivered. the company is rolling out a pilot program for a ou workweek. as we showed yesterday, only a handful of the online giants, more than 240,000 employees were will participate at first, but the program could have implications for workers far beyond amazon. cbs news financial contributor melody hobson joins us from chicago, good morning. >> good morning. >> so what type of employees would be available for this pilot program? >> so initially it's a few dozen. technical workers, interestingly in the hr department at amazon.
8:22 am
they'll work a 30-hour week, 10:00 to 2:00 four days a week so they have 16 hours of overlap with their colleagues. >> now these employees will receive 75% of full-time pay, is it a cost-cutting measure? >> no. it does not look like a cost-cutting measure, one way to tell, they're going to receive full benefits. usually when people have part-time workers, they don't paz full benefits, they've also to the extent they want to transition to be a full-time worker, they can. again, suggesting this is not about cost. the ceo of amazon, his own work says it's about creating a diverse work environment as well as he recognized that a traditional work schedule may not be one size fits all. and to that point of diversity, maybe bringing in more women since reportedly 76% of their managerial positions are held by men, and women obviously make a huge percentage of their customer base. and maybe more flexibility when
8:23 am
work there. >> melody, last time the new york times published a scathing piece, expose about the work culture at amazon. how much of this is perhaps a pr response to that? >> i'm not sure that's the case. now, it is well telegraphed that that story got underneath the skin of amazon's ceo, and you could tell bethe responses they sent out afterwards that it really bothered him. he said so, but i think this will have more about the fact that they need to attract the one additional issue right now that many people don't consider, which is that we're nearing full employment in the united states with a 5% unemployment rate. it is getting hard to find really qualified people, and then you're competing against other great companies. so they need to be innovative just like they are on all sorts of aspects of their business. >> amazon had a pretty big work force for a tech company, it's twice that of apple, four times
8:24 am
and follow this lead? and the 30 hours too, lst also implications for the affordable care act, right? >> some people are ahead of them. the two big accounts firms offer 30-hour workweeks to salaried employees. i think we will see more and more companies follow, but one of my sources said, i reached out yesterday in seattle and they made it clear, this was another big company and hr representative. see a wholesale change and known for i it's striving culture, don't even think about it. we're not going to wake up one day and have a population that works 30 hours. it's not going to happen. in terms of the affordable care act, no effect, full benefits. >> fascinating to watch the impact. melody hobson, we appreciate the time today. >> thanks melody. we are here in studio 57, we're going to find out how his

8:36 am
duck moose, my kids have used the same thing. wanted to be acquired by the biggest tech companies, no, we're going to hand it to you for free. >> yes. this is unbelievable. >> burr rig the leaves here. >> this doesn't typically happen. they came to us and they had other possibilities, but it turns out that the founders of this company, it's a husband and wife, and they started very similar to me. they started making these things for their family and they decided they would rather their legacy being being free to the world, and eventually internationalize them. >> so, we've had experts here, several of them in the last just few weeks come to discuss the potential pitfalls of screen time for young children. particularly two and three-year-olds. how do you reconcile the use of screen, social media for teens and your mission?
8:37 am
full answer of the right amount of screen time, et cetera. what i tend to do for my own children and my youngest is almost two right now is i care more about what he gets to do versus what he doesn't get to do. so if he spends a good amount of time playing with his siblings, going outside, playing with blocks, doing tactile things, if he spends half hour or day or so on a tablet, and i see my oldest learned his alphabet and numbers threw duck, duck moose apps. so i think there's a nice >> why now? what was the inspiration? >> you know, i think it's just a lot of folks in education have been thinking about what to do in early learns. it's part of our mission for anyone anywhere. we've always wanted to do it. and it was just this great connection with this duck, duck moose team which has always made the best apps out there, and for them to say they want to make them free and to make them part of a not for profit effort. what a better time. >> saul, a couple of years ago,

khan lab school, my two are very interested, no summer break, no grades, more active for the kids in picking their own subjects, how would you rate the progress then as good old fashion brick and mortar. >> it's been a great experiment. and, you know, we started it to show that khan academy and things like that, we didn't they purely online is how education should be. it should be a mixture of the two. the school, it's mixed age, t work at their own pace. if they need to spend time on more basic subjects, they can remediate there. if they wanted to race ahead, they can. they can work on project ts, and it's incredible. cousins, they're progressing faster than we expected. we measure how fast they're learning. >> you require standardized test, three times a year. >> duo. there are no traditional grades, but three times a year we do benchmark the students, but the conversation around the

8:40 am
whether you're able to have dinner with your family and full night of sleep. any time that homework or anything else competes with those things, it's a negative. obviously the more time you can learn, the better. you should have dinner with your family. >> you think there's good research? that homework correlates with success? >> between the quantity of homework, and that's because we know, there's different types of homework. you can memorizing words or something that's actually more valuable, but, they do know that -- or we know that not having dinner with your family or not getting full night's sleep and to some degree common sense is correlated with some optimal outcome. >> khan has just become the most popular man among kids. >> i know. learning, learning is good. but sleep. >> two little girls who are in. >> thank you, best of luck to you. >> and the names of some of the apps they can find them.
