7:34 am
latest news threatens to derail france's reputation for efficient management. the latest model of french passenger train is sleek, it's fast and as it turns out, it's too fat. in fact, as explained, several inches too fat to fit into hundreds of railway stations built before 1930. he's with the train operate cher apparently gave the wrong measurements to the company that built the new trains and no one noticed until it was too late. a screwup for the train network. it still holds the record for track speed. 357 miles an hour. it also oversaw one of the most complex engineering projects in history, the channel tunnel which carries 56,000 train passengers between britain and europe every single day.
7:35 am

7:37 am
behind it? >> it was an interesting decision charlie. the statute out in idaho talked in terms of making distinctions between games of skill and games of chance. and they listed games that were prohibited but they said if it's typically a game of skill, that that's okay. in the prohibited list were things such as roulette and kraps craps and poker. so the judge was saying, wait a minute we're saying it is a game of skill. they brought in experts, an array of statisticians and professionals and they convinced the judge that poker when played well was a game of skill rather than purely a game of chance that you don't know what cards you're getting jack. >> it's not completely clear. the judge made a distinction between roulette where you spin and don't know where the ball's going to drop. the interesting thing was the lead investigator on the stand said, yeah, i play poker and i play with some other cops and
7:38 am
yes, indeed it's a game of skill. the judge said, okay, case dismissed. >> what are the larger implications? >> that's a good question. this decision is not binding on anybody because it's a trial level decision. people need to understand that. that to get binding precedent, it had has to be upheld by an appeal court. >> is it going to be -- >> it doesn't look like the prosecution is concerned about it. >> why should we care about this case? snienk what it does norah, it creates a legal buzz. it's not a precedent. the judge next door could deseenlt differently next week but it creates a legal buzz it. gets lawyers and judges talking about it and there's less of a taboo that we seem to be attaching. >> doesn't it do something in terms of the internet gambling going on? isn't there an implication there in. >> there are all sorts of laws and rules that are starting to evolve because of the internet gambling. this may well come into play. 20 some states banned playing

new breast cancer controversy. women having a mastectomy or choosing to remove both. >> the new study may have more to do with fear than survival. dr. lisa port is with us. good morning, doctor. >> good morning. >> so tell us what's at stake here. >> i think the most important point to make is that when women have breast cancer in one side they tend to dramatically overestimate what their rink is of getting a new cancer on the other side. and understand it's a very, very charged -- emotionally charged time when they're diagnosed and so forth. but our job is to clarify what that risk actually is. importantly breast cancer can come back after someone's been treated and cured. but usually it does not come back to the other breast. it comes back to the body and it can spread to other organs in
7:46 am
the body not the other breast. >> what's the danger with somebody who has breast cancer? i don't want breast cancer again. >> better to be safe than sorry. >> better to be safe than sorry. we're going to be in there. let's take both breasts. >> the important thing for them to understand and it is for most women, it's truly their choice. the important thing is when they make their decision they have to know what they're getting and what they're not getting. they're not getting any improvement in survival from the cancer they already have but here are the things they are having. there's a slightly lower risk or developing a new cancer on the other side when you remove that breast. some women obviously remove the other breast for other reasons unrelated to the fear. for example, they do it to get a more sim it trick cosmetic result. when you're reconstructing one breast, it doesn't always perfectly match the other side and so is some women choose to do it for that reason. the other really compelling reason and that was in the study is that a lot of women are now
7:47 am
getting breast mris and breast mris do show a lot of what we call false positives and that sends off a lot of anxiety, bells and whistles. so women turn around when they're diagnosed and say if i don't remove the other breast the roast my lifetime a year from now is getting another mammogram and mri and they show things. >> thank you so much. good to have you here. >> nice to see you. >> we're starting out with some clouds, fog even a little drizzle around the bay area. some breezes blowing onshore now to 30 miles per hour in spots and through the delta. area of clouds inland today so we are starting out with fog over san jose and much of the bay area this morning. but lots of sunshine by the afternoon. and the temperatures going to be heating up today. some 80s maybe some mid-80s in the warmest spots well inland. lots of 70s inside the bay. 60s along the coastline. even warmer temperatures for the holiday weekend.

8:15 am
pop sik popsicles. the cold was killing the fat cells in their teeth. now doctors are applying that to other parts of the body. if you've ever seen before and after pictures these are not that surprising. when you hear the fat was removed after just four treatments without using a knife or a needle these results are unprecedented. >> i so badly want to believe this works. >> well, i think it's the most proven technology. >> reporter: this doctor says the procedure is called cool sculpting. it was created by two harvard doctors and has been cleared by the fda for treating thighs, love handles and belly. >> i feel a major vacuum. >> reporter: alice is a allerton was being treated while we watched. does it feel like ice? >> yeah, it does. like a thin sheet of ice.
8:16 am
>> reporter: the process of cool sculpting feels like ice because this device is freezing the fat cells directly below it. once they're frozen the fat cells drain naturally from the body. it can take 6 to 12 weeks to see the results but a patient could lose half an inch from their waistline after one half-hour treatment. doctors say the first treatment is usually the most effective. >> these techniques are not substitutes for liposuction, for people that have large amounts of fat the that need to be removed. >> reporter: are there any side effects? >> the only real side effect, you can occasionally get a little bit of bruising redness. >> reporter: the latest report by the international society of plastic surgeons shows the u.s. is the leading country for surgical cosmetic procedures with more than 1 million performed every year that includes about 110,000 tummy tucks and 220,000 liposuctions. worldwide 425,000 cool sculpting treatments were performed last
8:17 am
year alone. what are your hopes after this? >> that i'll be able to have a four pack this year and not a two pack. >> reporter: allerton says she was drawn to the procedure because it's so minimal she can teach a yoga class later today. other doctors we spoke to that had no financial relationship to the product say there is still no magic pill for weight loss but all agree for the right patient cool sculpting works. while the fat cells that are treated drain from the body there are still other surrounding fat cells that can expand so a patient has to maintain a healthy diet as well as exercise. as for the cost one abdominal treatment is about $1,300 and each love handle about $800. >> tell dr. rose you're ready. >> dr. rose i am ready. i'm going to put some popsicles on my butt. i would so, so, so do that. i'm not kidding. i'm not trying to be funny. i would do that. you don't have to have surgery, i'm in. i'm in.

8:34 am
doctor said 80. where it hit some trouble is when i had an accelerated heart rate. most of these devices you need to be completely stopped in order to get your heart rate. so at an accelerated heart rate this said 73. the ekg said 178 so it couldn't keep up with that. >> wow that's interesting. >> then we have the basis, carbon steel. this also does step tracking, pedometer. it also uses the optical sensor that the gear fit does. like that one. at rest it was close with 73 on the band and 08 on the ekg, but once i hit 138 on the ekg, it only read 78. it wasn't accurate. the accuracy was 40 to 50%. >> so what about are the garmin veno fit? >> it's interesting. it's chift drop.

8:36 am
>> i did. by the time it takes it it might not be in line whereas the vessel in your finger tripp is arterial. it's a direct line to your heart. if you hold your finger up to this part you can feel your heartbeat. >>'re's an interesting question. lots of wearable devices. how many want their heart rate as a wearable device. is that going to be necessary? >> what we know is these devices need a way to differentiate themselves. there are so many devices that do the same thing that when it comes down to it if all of them do the same thing and this one device does heart rate it's likely this a customer will choose that device, will favor it over the others. >> sharon, thank you. >> thank you. this morning in honor of memorial day we bring you a special edition of our emmy nominated series "note to self." scott is a veteran, one of millions of troops who come home with post-traumatic stress. his advice of coming home is
