we'll hear from him early this thursday morning, october 7th, 2010. captioning funded by cbs nice crowd outside on a beautiful fall day. good morning, everybody. i'm harry smith. >> i'm maggie rodriguez. it's been a week since that american couple was ambushed while jet skiing in the lake along the u.s.-mexico border. he was killed and now starting to see both sides begin to search in earnest for his body an seeing more questions about the widow's story of how this happened. we'll talk to her and his mother ahead. first, though, we want to head to the news desk this morning we ri cahill. >> good morning. we begin with wild weather in the west. in northern arizona, priya david clemens with the latest.
7:02 am
good morning. >> reporter: good morning. we're at an rv sales lot just outside flagstaff where the first of several tornadoes touched down. look at the devastation. the wind tossed the rvs like toys. ripped some apart entirely. not a scene they're used to in the arizona desert. a swarm of tornadoes derailed dozens of train cars and tossed rvs in the air, tearing a destructive path through neighborhoods, ripping off roofs. >> this is the worst i've ever seen. >> reporter: blowing out windows. >> all of a sudden, i see our sliding door just all of the glass exploded. >> reporter: this amateur video captured a twister in bellemont where winds reached 110 miles per hour. >> anybody's heart beating hard right now? >> reporter: in nearby flagstaff -- >> record amount of tornado warnings issued from the national weather service. >> reporter: 22 tornado warnings in one day. typically, there are just four in an entire year. when it was over, 200 homes were
7:03 am
damaged. 33 destroyed. >> just can't believe it. it's gone. it's just gone. >> reporter: it's been a week of extreme weather across the west. snow in the sierra closed a highway pass. heavy rains snarled traffic in los angeles. flooded streets and grounded flights in phoenix. hail in arizona stunned even this veteran weatherman. >> falling like bullets now. this is painful to be out here. >> reporter: that hail left 20,000 phoenix residents without power. and this morning, hundreds are still in the dark. in bellemont, arizona, priya clemens, cbs news. the world's worst offshore oil spill, the revolution from a report come biled by an independent commission. bill plante has the details.
7:04 am
good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the commission report alleges what people believed all along, that is that the government lowballed the estimates of the amount of oil escaping into the gulf and blocked government scientists. the commission charges the government quote created the impression that it was not fully competent to handle the spill or not fully candid with the american people about the scope of the problem. besides faulting the administration for its early estimates, the panel singles out senior energy adviser carol browner for the public response to the unfolding disaster. >> i think we are getting good news. >> reporter: in august, browner said a federal analysis showed most of the spill had already been taken care of. >> scientists telling us the vast majority of the oil is contained. almost three quarters of the oil was actually captured, cleaned and skimmed. >> reporter: but in fact, the analysis actually showed the oil could still be there. the report also reveals that in
7:05 am
late april the white house denied a request of the government scientists to make public the leak's worst-case scenario. for more than a month after the deep ocean rig exploded government officials telling the public the well was leaking 210,000 gallons of oil a day but in early august the government acknowledged it was gushing 2.6 billion gallons every day, close to the worst-case predictions. the administration disputes the commission's findings and says senior government officials were, quote, clear with the public what the worst-case flow would be, unquote. the white house says that differences over the size of the spill did not keep the government from responding with everything it had. and another government official says that these differences were the result of modeling and assumptions that were made which were later corrected. this is a draft report. you may expect to see some changes when it's in the final form. erica? >> perhaps.
7:06 am
thanks. in hungary today, another disaster spill. a flood of toxic waste which has emergency crews scrambling to keep it from spreading after it reached a branch of europe's second largest river, the danube. it burst from a reservoir on monday. you can see it there. inundated three towns. today's hungary's prime minister said it's so polluted it doesn't make sense to rebuild. the war in afghanistan, entering the tenth year today, in kabul, afghan president karzai hosting the first session of a new counsel charged with guiding peace efforts with the taliban. karzai spokesman says there have been talks but no official negotiations. rescue crews in chile said they'll begin practicing tomorrow to rescue the workers. the miners have been trapped half a mile underground for just over two months now. it was initially thought they might remain there until
7:07 am
christmas. and in sports, talk about a philadelphia story. authored in this case by phillies' ace pitcher roy halladay, only the second no-hitter in post season baseball history, striking out cincinnati reds in a 4-0 victory to open the national league playoff series. >> to be able to go out and have a game like that, you know, it's dream come true. >> and incidentally, tomorrow, the anniversary of the only other post season no-hitter. larson's perfect game in the 1956 world series. always a fun way to start with baseball trivia. harry, over to you. >> thank you. now to politics and the tea party's impact in this year's vote. a new cbs news poll shows that less than a month before the midterm elections there's a lot of voter uncertainty about the tea party movement. cbs news correspondent ben tracy has more on the poll and the hottest battleground for perspective tea party votes. >> i'm joe miller.
7:08 am
the true conservative choice for the u.s. senate in alaska. >> reporter: joe miller may be the tea party's biggest success so far, knocking off the incumbent murkowski in alaska's republican primary. >> nobody was more disappointed than i was. >> reporter: a new poll shows most americans haven't made their up their minds about the growing tea party movement. the rest are evenly split. >> i don't want any of them in charge. >> i think that we need to give more control back to the states and to the individual communities. >> reporter: the tea party express has already spent $5 million, mostly on tv ads, trying to get its candidates elected from delaware to nevada, all the way up to alaska. >> how liberal is lisa murkowski? >> reporter: their ads blasted murkowski now running as a write-in candidate. >> they assassinatedly is a murkowski politically. she never fought back. >> reporter: this race isn't just about the candidates but who's supporting them, namely the tea party express and the
7:09 am
mama grizzly herself, sarah palin. >> the tea party express joins governor sarah palin -- >> reporter: the endorsement of miller helped him win the primary and when asked to endorse her, his answer was len than enthusiastic. >> we have a constitutional requirement for somebody that's going to run for president. of course, she's qualified. >> reporter: she hasn't won over the country either. when asked if palin would make an effective president, only 22% say, yes. 64%, no. including nearly half of republicans. president obama is facing similar problems in the polls. 66% of americans view him as an advantage or poor president. while another 31% say his backing of a candidate running for office will actually be a detriment. meaning that two biggest names in the respective parties may be something to avoid come election day. ben tracy, cbs news, anchorage, alaska. and joining us now from st. louis, dana loesch, a radio talk show host and blogger, also an
7:10 am
early and enthusiastic supporter of the tea party movement. dana, good morning. >> good morning to you. >> for our viewer who is may not be familiar, i'm going to describe something written about you, a sweet, midwest goth version of laura ingram. >> is that accurate? >> i guess i'm more rock n roll than the typical conservative type. >> welcome to the broadcast. >> thank you. >> let's talk about alaska. joe miller versus the palins. is this so much noise or is this actually a fizz your between the tea party candidate and the first family of the tea party? >> i think it's really -- it's just something typical to see in my political cycle and i think it was kind of an odd question that was posed to joe miller because it's so incredibly early to start talking about 2012 candidates. it is early and same time it is not early to start speculating. joe miller i think was put in a difficult position asked to
7:11 am
essentially endorse a candidate that hasn't declared and a little bit of a weird place for him to be in and i think the answer was fine. and -- sarah palin, she did come out and endorsed him. people know joe miller because she helped put him on the map. >> not exactly a positive feedback but i want the move on because this poll is so interesting. because you find that while people are certainly aware of the tea party, the vast middle in america is not exactly running toward it. they seem to be moving away from the president and not running toward the tea party. they're still sitting on the fence. why do you think that is? >> i'm not sure. i'm watching polling data from the last year, independents and moderates and trending toward the right. especially with the special elections that took place in virginia and in new jersey. virginia was a bellweather state. if you remember when president
7:12 am
obama took virginia, david axelrod called it a bell weather state but then went red and that was because of the independents, the same people who are really -- these people are deciding midterms and these are the people who are trending gop, the exact same people who said that they closely -- more identify with the grass roots movement than with the democrat congressional agenda so they're definitely the voting block at play here. >> the middle is definitely fickle. last but not least, the thing i want to focus in on is the tea party had a dramatic effect on the primaries. as it holds as much power as it does now, does the larger party, does the republican party as an entity, does it get what it's dealing with here? >> i think it does now. in the beginning, it was a weird sort of adversarial dance we watched between the grass roots movement and the republican party and i think that lot of
7:13 am
people in the gop have come around. i think newt gingrich came around because everyone remembers new york 23. that wasn't a battle of democrats against republicans. that was grass roots versus republican establishment and we all remember that the republican establishment did not win that particular race. i think after that, i think looking at massachusetts, what we had were a series of flukes. we had christine o'donnell in delaware. sharron angle winning the primary in nevada. joe miller and scott brown. new jersey and virginia. after a while the flukes add up to become a trend and so now i think the gop realizes what it's dealing with and getting back to the base. >> dana, we'll be watching with interest in the weeks to come. thanks for being on the broadcast. >> thank you. >> maggie? >> thank you. unemployment is sure to be a big issue for voters next month and a report says private emp y employers cut 39,000 jobs last month and they expect the unemployment rate will go up in tomorrow's monthly jobs report
7:14 am
and good news to report this morning and cbs news business and economics correspondent rebecca jarvis is here with that. good morning. >> good morning, maggie. >> there's several reports out now that predict that the jobs numbers uglier than everyone expects. >> the jobs report that comes out tomorrow obviously looking backwards and looking at the month of september but the important thing to take away from it is that, again, we are not creating enough jobs in this economy. it's not the kind of recovery that anyone wants to see. right now, the expectation is that unemployment will actually tick higher from 9.6% to 9.7% as more people enter the work force and try to find work, but also, as fewer private employers create jobs like you said in the introduction to this segment, they're not creating jobs and some jobs lost and that is impacting the numbers and sen k sus workers we talk about and takes away from the jobs number
7:15 am
overall. >> all we have to do is look online. i talked about this earlier this week and monster worldwide with the employment index showing a 1% increase in online job postings and 1% but a 16% growth from last year. it's consistently growing. >> that's the good news and what you want to look at for future job growth is surveys like this. the monster worldwide survey is showing positive growth into the future for online job listings and that portends positively to an extent. >> to an extent. job opportunities in the holidays. we'll tell people where those are to be found in the next hour. >> exactly. thank you. right now 7:15 and we want to check in with dave for the first look at the weather. good morning. >> good morning to you, maggie. let's go to the maps right now. in all three sections of the country, if you divide it west, east and middle and bismark, north dakota, the area around the northern plains, we're going to see temperatures 10 to 20 degrees above the average. nice sunshining skies.
7:16 am
peaceful and calm but we are watching some real trouble, what

in this morning's "healthwatch." crash diets. people desperate to lose weight have latched on to various fad diets but if even if they work they come with risks and dr. jennifer ashton is here to take us through some of the most popular. >> good morning, harry. >> this -- i like this one. i mean i like it for a half a day at least because there's nothing better than ruby red grapefruit. >> disclaimer on all crash diets. they do work in the short term. >> okay. >> because they are all very low calorie and, in fact, dangerously low calorie. they are not sustainable. they can be dangerous for some people so we're just going to dedunk some of the myths about them but really this is not the best way to lose weight in the long term. >> so you're going to tell me i can't live on red grapefruit alone? >> no, you cannot, i'm sorry to break that to you but this was a diet popular since way back to the 1930s.
8:11 am
the thinking there was some magic enzyme that revved up your metabolism. it's not true. it's just a really low-calorie diet, medium protein, low carb. >> all the fiber and stuff fills you up. >> it's good for you. yep, absolutely good for you but no magic there. >> yeah. >> now, cabbage soup diet. everyone has heard of this. this is unlimited volumes of cabbage soup towards the end of the week you can add some protein, again, this is about an 800 to 1200-calorie a day diet. that's how it works but this might not be very appetizing to some and it can give you some gas. >> well, the smell of the sulfur and the cabbage to kind of the cooking and then there are the residual effects as you say. >> exactly but not that much sodium in there so it's effective but not that nutritious. >> man cannot live on grapefruit or cabbage alone. >> these are the juice cleanses or master cleanse or juice detox, very popular with celebrities. you can actually get these
8:12 am
juices delivered to your door for about three days and can be about $60 and, again, for a shored period of time, okay, that's fine but it is not sustainable. it's not -- >> if you're looking to lose a couple of pounds in a couple of days this sort of works. >> any of these things can work but they are not that healthy in the long term. >> in the long term and i was not -- now what is this one. >> this is the baby food diet because if you think chewing is really just too much work when you're trying to lose weight people eat 10 to 15 jars of baby food a day and can have anywhere from 15 to 100 calories per jar and it's calorie restrict. that's how it works, remember, adults are not babies so the nutrients in here is really not what an adult needs. i have a confession. i actually like the fruit baby food. >> do you? >> that's probably chicken. >> yummy. >> yeah. look, if you need to lose weight in the long term you've heard it here before it's good habits. we want to encourage health from the inside out. you want to obviously be active and everyone knows what are the
8:13 am
big offenders to avoid. >> right. thanks a lot. >> yeah, i'll have the baby food fruit. >> didn't know about that. dr. jennifer ashton. do appreciate it. for tips on rapid and safe weight loss methods go to our partner in health and search "lose weight fast." up next, here come the brides. we'll meet three sisters who are all going to say "i do," "i do" and "i do" this weekend when we come back. >> announcer: cbs healthwatch sponsored by dove deep moisture body wash with nutrient moisture.

8:34 am
650,000 temporary jobs for the holidays and right now is the time to apply. so, cbs news business and economics correspondent reb ja jarvis is back to tell us where the jobs are. good morning. >> hey, maggie. >> this is going to prop up the economy and help so many people, these are so important. >> these are significant jobs. when you think about it, 14.9 million people in this country are counted as unemployed. millions of those people have been unemployed for more than six months. so, this is an opportunity for those individuals, in particular, to get back on that horse, to start working again. that 650,000 number is above where we are last year. last year the economy added about 501,000 temporary jobs this time of year. because, in part, of that but also because they were adding temporary jobs. of course, it tends to be the time where retailers hire, the time retailers make money. >> need more money. >> 3% of their sales come from this time of year. this is when the opportunities are to get them. >> what retailers specifically are looking for people? >> i want to make this clear.
8:35 am
all retailers this time of year are looking for people, but some of the big names to watch out for, ups, adding 50,000 drivers in the next couple of months here with package handlers, toys r us is doubling their workforce. 45,000 new people. a lot of those folks will be looking at pop-up stores, the new stores and kohl's yesterday announcing 40,000 new-hires for the holiday season. 35 ploy he yees for every single one of their more than thousand stores. also best buy 29,000 employees added there. the number one electronics retailer, trying to sell flat-screens. if you get a job at best buy, you will probably be pushing flat-screens. >> there you go. are these the types of jobs that pay pretty well or low-paying jobs? >> well, it's a mixture. for the most part, you are not going to get rich with these jobs, you will get about $8 to $12 per hour for the less experienced positions. for the more experienced positions, you could makes a much as 25 to 40. but, the important thing is what
8:36 am
you do with the job when you have it. you want to make a great impression. like i said, so many millions of people have been out of work for so long in this country, if you can get a job at this point in the year, it just increases your chance of getting a job and having something longer term on your resume. >> shouldn't you, in fact, go out looking for a permanent job while employed. aren't you mo attractive as a can dit. >> you are, when you are employed. one of the first things you want to do when you land that seasonal work, send your resume out elsewhere for long-term work and also a number of these seasonal employers are looking for talent for the rest of the year. i talked to up syed, great story from the individual i spoke to there. he's been working at the company for 32 years. he started out at 17 years old as an ploy we could who worked over the christmas holiday. two weeks after his temporary work came to an end they called him up and said, come on board we want you as a long-term employ employee. that's what you want to try to do with tease opportunities. >> do you think this is a chance
8:37 am
it will make any dent in the unemployment rate? >> the reality is probably slim. it may move the unemployment rate temporarily but the important thing what it will do in terms of allowing consumers to feel a bit better and for those people looking for relief for a long time, maggie, it will make obviously an impact in their own lives. >> especially during the holidays when they want to be able to buy gifts for i their families. >> exactly. it give them something hopefully more to celebrate this year. >> thank you so much. we'll look for the unemployment numbers tomorrow. i'm sure you'll be back with that. thanks. >> thank you. >> harry? in a film career spanning more than three decades diane lane starred in such diverse films as "the perfect storm" under the tuscan sun" and "unfaithful" now back on the big screen as a housewife who realizes the racehorse she owns will be the greatest there ever was in "secretariat." >> you are guaranteeing this horse is going to win the triple
8:38 am
crown, the derby, preakness and belmont, three raedz, three states in just five weeks. hasn't been done in 25 years. >> that is exactly what i'm saying. >> you're that stubborn? >> i'm that right. >> good line, diane lane is with us this morning. good morning. great seeing you in the movie. >> thank you for having me. >> you've played real people before, right? >> true. >> right? but had you ever played someone you've met? >> well, spending time with the person you're representing on screen is -- it's surreal, for both parties. >> sure. >> but, i have to admit that, first of all, you know, penny is and historic figure for a reason. she is a great lady. and i've come out of this with a friend. we never foresaw any of this. >> how great. >> it's lovely. >> it is an extraordinary story, the family has a stable down in
8:39 am
virginia. the patriarch of the family falls ill. and she ends up sort of having to carry the ball for the family. >> you know, honestly, if disney could have written this story for the screen, they would have. >> they would have written it exactly -- >> the story is just off the charts, magical for everybody. i think that this has been trying to get to the screen for decades. and i'm grateful it took this long so i could be the one to standing next to and pretend i'm standing next to secretariat in his glory. >> are you a horse person? >> you know, i am but i don't know my jargon, my far left, this, that and the other. >> there are a lot of scenes you are kind of nose to those with this horse who plays -- >> absolutely. >> one horse or a lot of horses? >> we had five to cover all the ground that was asked of these horses in the time we were filming but there were two that i really spent nuzzle time with
8:40 am
and it was great. i loved them. >> there's an important relationship between you and this horse. >> well, that's true. >> this horse inspires you to basically say to your family and to your husband, this is the work i was meant to do, was to do this work. and the time this is happening, in the early 1970s, women weren't really doing that. >> well, as a mother, i think it served her to trust herself and her gut about what it takes to call forth the greatness of another family member. and she was born into the horse-breeding industry and she grew up with that. and people wanted to forget, i think, and it was a really no vel media way of packaging her to say, you're a housewife, you have no business being here. maybe her hair-do distracted everybody. her hair was enough, you know, to live up to that. >> what was that like? the look of the film is really having -- i graduated from college in 1973. i know it looked like back then. and it is very -- it is
8:41 am
absolutely authentic. >> thank you. i -- you know, teams of professionals make sure of all. >> that sometimes it's like when you go on location or something like that, when you pult on that, it's almost like having a costume. >> the costume designer who worked from just my character, julie weiss, she's amazing a stickler for authenticity. i don't know. i think we are single handedly going to bring back -- we've covered the '70s from what do they call the riff-raff and those kids today. you know, but the establishment and the way jackie bouvier dressed before she became jackie kennedy, jackie o., before that transition for women. >> you said one of the hardest lines for you to deliver in the movie the family in this dispute because your husband is clearly conservative, the kids are involved in a protest movement. i mean, it is sort of really real-life american family in the early '70s. you try to sort of stop things
8:42 am
by saying, does anyone like pie. >> would anyone like pie? that's how it was. you can't actually go down the path arguing with your children about politics with the father in the middle of it all. there is a skill set being the peacekeeper in the family while you acknowledge everybody's point of view. >> the thing most interesting about this, here is this horse, phenomenal horse that brings all the generations together because everybody loves secretariat. >> i think everybody stopped on its axis, stopped for a moment and dropped their negativism and cynicism. this film, if anything is anti-cynical, a breath of fresh air. >> there you go. great to see you congratulations. >> thank you. >> thanks for coming. >> nice to be back. thanks for having me. >> here's erica and cody as furry friends. october is adopt a shelter dog months. our correspondent dr. debbye turner bell is here to help us find the perfect pet for our families. good to have you with us this
8:43 am
morning. >> good morning. >> you have friends that need a home. >> let me introduce them to you, over on your left rocky a poodle mix, two years old, i believe. is that right? cody right here a pomeranian, pure-bread, you can get pure-reds at shelters. i have mr. flops, the ear gifls it away, ten years old really needs a home, as well as nick, the boxer mix who is five months old a puppy. we have a wide variety of dogs here, as you will find, at your local shelter. >> i love you brought this up a point makes people say i need a pure-breed sometimes you do there is a rescue group or you can find one at a shelter. how do you know you are at reputable or good shelter when you ready to find a pet. >> before i answer this, let me say this every animal at a shelter no matter its condition need a home. however you have a better result if you go to a shelter that really pays attention what they are doing and knows what they are doing.
8:44 am
you want to look for a shelter that is clean and the people are friendly and knowledgeable. they are going to ask you more questions, almost, than you will ask them. you -- also it's good to find a shelter, if you can with a staff veterinarian or at least a veterinarian there on a regular basis in a staff behaviorist, all the better. 60% of animals that end up in shelters, most cases end up there because of behavior problems. it is great if they have a behavist that can temper test the animals and properly place them with the right family. >> you can understand, too, what that behavioral issue was. let's start off when you go in, all these things you need to know. the questions we need to ask when we found a pet you love. >> you need to do your homework and know the background of the dog. sometimes dogs end up shelters and don't know their background but sometimes they do. you want to know where the dog came from, how long they've been in shelter, their living situation before they got there and ask about the medical history of this dog. does the dog have a chronic disease, diabetes, heart disease, something ongoing you
8:45 am
need to be prepared for. >> do you need to worry about medication. >> you need to worry about medication and make sure the dog is vaccinated, dewormed, spayed and new turred and ask about the behavior of the dog since at the shelter, outgoing or friendly with other dogs or act fearful and hide in the back of the cage and ask the shelter for their follow-up services. do they offer behavior training classes? will they do consultations if you run into something in the future and finally you want to ask the shelter about their return policy. many good shelters do have a return policy because they want that dog to be in a good home and they don't want to end up abandoned. for instance, the humane society of new york, who graciously brought all these dogs, will take the dog back if it doesn't work out. in fact, mr. flops here was adopted out ten years ago. the family was not able to care for him now in their present situation. the humane society took them back. you want to know about that. >> mr. flops we'll find you another good home. i wish i had room for another dog.
8:46 am
what should you do when you go in, be prepared for in terms of questions they will ask and documentation you may need to have. you ngt just necessarily walk out the door with a dauk. >> these days you almost need your blood type and fingerprints. it is an extensive process. they will ask burr living conditions and make sure you can financially handle the animal, they swl for references and a good shelter will check them and ask you a lot of questions about your expectations, who else lives there, do you have small kids or older kids. >> plans for taking care of the dog. >> that's correct. >> you can expect some shelters to do a home visit. do you have a fenced-in yard so the animal has a place to run. expect to have an adoption fee, usually covers the cost the shelter had to incur to take in the animal and care for them. this can be anywhere from $50 to $150 or more. >> some of that cost, though, correct me if i'm wrong, sometimes it will include your spaying or nurturing, also
8:47 am
something shelters and rescue groups are doing to help keep the pet population down. >> that is absolutely right. a good shelter, you bring up a good point will have spayed or neutered the animal in case they are too young, in many cases they make preparations with you to bring them back when it's time. >> when we adopted our dog at three and a half months they did that with us. they also made us sign a form whether or not we had any intention of big life changes, i than hadn't thought, about will you move, have a child, get married. that all impacts your pet. >> there are 8 to 12 million homeless pets here in the united states, half of them, think about that, four million, five million are euthanized every year because there are not enough good homes. shelters don't want to see these animals abandoned again and are going to go to great lengths to make sure you have as the prospective pet owner knows what they are getting into. also some shelters will follow-ups and call you a month or two later and say how is it
8:48 am
going, how are things, can we help you anyway, another hallmark of a great shelter. >> and the great pet parent, what's the most important thing we can do when we bring the dog home. >> most important, prepare for what you are actually getting and do your homework. of course you want to match the dog to your family and lifestyle make sure you have the right dog and breed. more than anything make sure you are prepared for the commitment so it is a lifetime, happy, forever home. >> because they are sweet, sweet little souls who need a lot of love. >> that's right. >> great to have you there and so nice to have all our friends, as well, who need a home. if you interested in adopting any of these dogs again they are right now at the humane society of new york log onto our website and you will find all the information you need right there to bring one of these friends home for you or perhaps another one in your area. >> that's right. >> stay with us. we'll be right back. you are watching "the early show" on cbs.
