8:03 am
40,000 people live here and almost none of them knew that one of their own had been held captive by isis. but now they know she's not coming home. >> kayla has touched the heart of the world. the world grieves with us. the world mourns with us. the world wants to be more like kayla and if that is her legacy and the footprint that she leaves on the world, then that is a wonderful thing. >> reporter: family and friends of kayla mueller gathered outside the courthouse in prescott to remember her far too short 26 years. >> she has done more in her incredible 26 years than many people can ever imagine doing in their lifetime. >> reporter: this town in the arizona mountains is where kayla first became a voracious volunteer. she worked with aids patients at a women's shelter and eventually left home to do humanitarian work in india, israel and then syria. >> what was so extraordinary about kayla, is she did ordinary
8:04 am
things to extraordinary measures. >> reporter: such as trying to teach her isis captors how to make crafts and finding more than a sliver of light in so much darkness. in a letter to her parents last year kayla wrote, even if prison one can be free i am grateful. i have come to see there is good in every situation, sometimes we just have to look for it." that optimism is harder to find among the pain in prescott. this is a town still recovering from the yarnell fire a year and a half ago. 19 firefighters members of the hot shots were killed. now kayla mueller. aaron street was her best friend. >> i'm not yet sure how to live in a world without kayla. but i do know that we're all living in a better world because of her. >> reporter: now, kayla mueller's parents have not spoken publicly but in a statement they did say they are heartbroken by the loss of their only daughter. they say they will spend the rest of their lives trying to honor hers.

>> all right, ben. it is it's a heartbreaking story. we've been talking about this all morning. thank you, ben. two big names are shaking up the world of television jon stewart stunned his fans last night announcing he is going to give up "the daily show" later this year because he said it's time for a change. and brian williams is going off the air under very different circumstances. nbc news suspended him for six months after he reported falsely that his iraq war helicopter was hit by a grenade. "new york times" media columnist david jones joins us. >> good morning. >> his actions are inexcusable and this suspension is severe and appropriate. >> i think what he did was a huge problem, hurt the network and the people around him. he bungled his attempt to apologize and i think, to begin with, everyone including brian
8:06 am
thought he was maybe too big to fail. number one anchor almost 10 million viewers. turns out he's not the most important thing, credibility of the news division had to be protected. under all circumstances. and his path back to that chair is uncertain as you might guess. >> but it's possible? >> it's possible. i think it's good to leave that door open. i mean this is an incredibly likable person. nobody is rooting against him. he made some very very dumb decisions but let's see what he can do with working from here. >> that's what everybody says he's so well liked, so well respected in this industry and many people still can't believe this has happened to him. if we don't see him for six months, how can he redeem himself? how should he redeem himself? what can he do? >> this is without precedent in american broadcast history. we've never seen a suspension of an anchor like this.
8:07 am
we don't know what a comeback looks like. there's no playbook for what's under way. they're going to have to make it up as they go along. they may well decide we can't get there from here. but who knows what they'll come up with. >> so much has happened in six days. how does so much more not happen in six months? >> it's just -- well number one, you'll see the full expanse of what he did and will there be a drip drip drip or will at a certain point, it will pivot to the other things he's done? i think the tragedy here is he was the number one anchor in the nation. everybody loved his work. but he -- somehow that wasn't enough. he had to go and do all these other things. >> and how ironic is it that we're talking about jon stewart who is stepping down?
8:08 am
you have brian williams on one end of the spectrum jon stewart on the other. >> two boys from new jersey made very, very good. they both accomplished enormous things. jon stewart changed the way we look at politics the way we cover politics. he made a dent in the universe, never mind all the other people he unleashed on the world. he did it through so-called fake news annotating real news. for a lot of young people that was the news. they're going to miss it. >> what does he do other than have dinner with his family? what he said he was looking forward to. >> he made a wonderful film obviously. but he's not a classic talk show guy, that isn't really his thing. he's a comic from get-go. everybody would like to get a piece of him. there are people who say please walk over take over brian williams job. he doesn't want that job. he admires and respects
8:09 am
journalism. he's never wanted to -- >> i heard people crack jokes, brian williams could take jon stewart's job. >> twitter is going nuts with that right now. >> twitter can be mean. >> is that a possibility? >> dave should change jobs and be done with it. >> david letterman once said in a conversation that was unrecorded that brian would have been a great successor to him. >> of course brian had the same idea and wanted to be -- take over for jay leno and that did not sit well with his colleagues in the news division that he wanted to cross over. his skills in those -- in that regard are very, very significant. he's not a sort of funny guy, he's incredibly gifted. >> if you had to name one name to replace jon stewart? then we have to go. >> i don't -- i don't see that as specifically replaceable. i really don't. maybe if charlie wants to change things give it a whirl. >> why is everybody trying to

8:18 am
out would be upset? >> i think that is the issue and i think the issue is that if you're saying to one spouse, look, if we have to actually disclose after $500 we're going to talk about it that's oak or under $100 whatever that limit s it's really important. >> i'm asking for charlie now. are there specific issues in second marriages? >> absolutely. you may want to talk about pre-nups and talk to lawyer. especially when you have children invo hashtag #beready and go to to join in on the conversation. >> if we win powerball, we don't have to worry about that. >> a short nap can get you through the day and that's not all. how it might also help you stay healthy, ahead on "cbs this morning." >> announcer: this morning's "eye con-on-yieeye on money" sponsored by voya.

8:33 am
next day. what they found is after such extreme slep deprivation, there were change in markers of the immune system and also norah pin efren. but after they took the nap both of the markers went back to norm achlt it suggests there's a restorative of protective effect to the nap. this study showed these two specific 30-minute naps and we also know that short names 20 to 30 minutes boost our memory our attention span our performance. longer than that may have those benefits as well but you're moreinertia, the dwrogyness after a longer nap. >> the question is different whether you're getting a normal night of sleep and trying to nap or -- by the way, an then there's talk about potentially introducing this in some high schools? >> right. jeff, you brought up a really important point. these only pertain to the
8:34 am
occasional very extreme case of deprivation wlrks you pull an all nighter or only get one to two hours. they may not work for those of us who has krobic sleep deprivation, which is many of us. many of us go in under six. the nap may make you feel better, but we're not sure it will have the same health benefits. >> what are the people who are chronically sleep deprived? if this study is for the one person, what about people? >> i think they do need to focus on sort of overhauling our approach to sleep and really pryor tighting it. with respect to teens, they are what's considered our at risk group for the negative effects of sleep deprivation. they go to sleep later and we're not allowing them to sleep in in the morning because school starts so early. >> if there's one thing i can say that helps people get through the day, it's the power of naps. >> charlie does it well.

8:36 am
63-175. >> gabby lee is a successful volleyball player. she met and fall in love with and their commonalities started to drive them apart. >> we're both strong willed opinionated, bossy. when you have two strong personalities, it can be challenging but let's face it co-habitation in general is a dance. >> a dance that reece in her 2013 autobiography almost ended in divorce so she made a shift. strong willed at work less so at home. to be truly feminine she wrote, means being sovgts receptive, and look out, here it comes, submissive. >> started to learn, well, you know, maybe if i leave some of that alphaness outside and leave that for the world and then maybe develop and cultivate this other female side it brought out also a very positive side of
8:37 am
my husband that made things better. >> candice cameron beret got her big break when she was just 11 years old. at 20 she married hockey player val beret and left acting to raise a family. it was her home life that would thrust her back into the spotlight when she also used the world submissive in her second book. >> why that term? >> i used the word because i was quoting the bible. the word got taken out of context. my husband takes the role seriously as the leader of the family and i take the role seriously as nurturer of the family. it's not that one role is more important than the other. i'm not talking about submissive in an oppressed way. that's not the definition of it. >> it may not be the definition but this is how submissive is now playing out in pop culture.
8:38 am
men totally in control, women insubordinate. it makes it instantly controversial. >> i think whenever you have a society in which power has not been shared equally, it sets off like a traumatic reaction. you know we're only a few decades away from the women's movement. >> both say embracing a word like submissive might just help push women forward. >> you strike me as somebody very sure of what she wants and how she's going to get it. >> i would not be an author, an actress, a producer a mother of three, a career woman if i was a weak or oppressed woman. there's nothing weak about me in my marriage. >> even both of these women have totally different views on what it means to be submissive. so it likely won't stop any time soon. >> i was watching gayle watch
8:39 am
this piece. >> i know. >> for the last few minutes, and, oh my goodness. >> me no speak english. i think the world has a lot of different connotations for a lot of different people. i think in a really good relationship, the power shifts in both couples. sometimes it's you, sometimes it's me sometimes it's me, sometimes it's you. i don't think itmate makes either one of us less. >> i think it's a divisive point. charlie, do you like to be sub miss nieve your relationship. >> here we go, here we go. >> that's what makes a relationship work. charlie is going to go see the movie. >> we're all going together. >> i want to hear charlie's answer to this question. >> i think that we have a variety of selves than we ought to use all of them. >> i do too. >> in order to promote the best possible relationship. >> i like that answer. >> i do too. perfectly said. >> we always have to ask charlie. >> lee, thank you very much.

8:45 am
a certain way in your work life as they were saying, there's a separation between work and life, if you go home and you kind of have to act a little it seems a little odd to me a little uncome dportable. shouldn't you be able to be whoever you are wherever you are. you shouldlet have to go home and act. that's my opinion. submission is a very specific word i think it's called compromise or understanding to let someone else pay the bill. you know to give in a little bit doesn't mean you have to be sub miss sniev lucy didn't submit this week. she dominated. she directed this episode. your second time directed. why did you want to do it and what did you learn? >> the second time around i learned more. this script was a little more procedural. so we actually had a case i had to work on which involved zebras which made it very difficult because it's winter
8:46 am
and zebras are warm weather animals. so we had to bring the see bras out from down south and at one point we discussed palkt little ponies black and white, which we have done before. we went through every possible list of things we needed to do and that was one of them. >> were you doing this because it's something you might want to do in the future of your own professional life? >> that's a great question and i do. i want to continue doing it. i really love it and i think it's just a natural progression from where i started over 20 years ago. it's funny because you learn from the people that you work with around you, not just the crew and the directors, but just as a whole. you see how everything is work. you think about your role, your lines, what you're wearing and as you progress you start thinking about absolutely everything. the props, the production how
8:47 am
much time it's taking. your concern grows. it's nice to have the microcosm to break out into that bigger view. >> is it a shift for you or the cast when you take the director's chair? >> it's a little bit of a schist because i have to -- yeah i was in that actual scene and i was in the episode and that kind of takes a little while. sometimes i'll have to run back to the video village area panhandling & make sure the camera was in the right direction and then we can move on. but i think because i'm so inty mat with the cast and they feel comfortable with me, it makes it easy. i think the thing about being a director is listening. hearing what the actors are saying, what they're doing and just trusting that everyone is doing what they were hired to do and you guide them. we forgot, you know we're shooting it backward and we have to make sure we remember these little bread crumbs that we plant in the beginning. >> where's "elementary" going?

i'd ever see you two together in bed. >> i can honestly say i haven't seen you naked. >> we'll need five minutes after the show to discuss all this. we want to stay true to something that's in the literature, they had a partnership and friendship. even though it's a modern-day twist we don't want to mix it up too much. plus fans are getting used to the fact that there's a woman playing watson. >> the ratings are great. the paintingspaintsing, how that influences your life? >> i think it's a more private thing i get to do without having 200 crew memberers relying on you. you can doet on your own. nobody's telling you. >> speaking of time i have to let you go. >> great being here. >> 8:00
