7:03 am
welcome to cbs news. a major new health scare this morning in southern california. a deadly superbug may have infected nearly 200 people at ronald reagan ucla medical center. seven people known to have been exposed since october. two of them died. this morning the hospital is offering a free at-home testing kit to people who may have been infected. carter evans is at the medical center in los angeles with how this bacteria started to spread. carter, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. and good morning to our viewers here in the west. as more people return their test kits, the concern is that the number of infections will increase. meanwhile, the cdc and the l.a. department of public health is investigating to determine exactly how so many people were exposed to this deadly bacteria. the drug-resistant superbug known at cre has been blamed for the death of two patients in ronald reagan ucla medical center. at least five others have been infected, and health officials are trying to determine just how much patients may be at risk are
7:04 am
exposure. the outbreak which was discovered last month is tied to a set of specialized endoscopic procedures which took place at the hospital between october of last year and january of 2015. officials are now in the process of notifying 179 patients who may have come in contact with the bacteria. the hospital cleaned the scopes according to guidelines established by the manufacturer but the type of endoscope used in the procedure, which some estimates say is performed half a million time as year in the u.s., can accumulate bacteria in spots that are difficult to disinfect. in a statement, the ucla health system said the two scopes involved with the infection were immediately removed and they're using a decontamination process going awe bov and beyond national standards. cre is resistant to commonly used antibiotics in the same family the e. coli. according to the cdc, once it enters the blood stream the bacteria can kill up to 50% of
7:05 am
infected patients. since 2012 superbug infections related to dirty endoscopes appeared in cities across the country, including chicago, pittsburgh, philadelphia and most recently seattle. we reached out to olympus medical systems the company that makes the endscope in question and haven't heard back. the fda is working to determine what more could be done to reduce infections but right now says the benefits of the endoscope outweigh risks. >> carter thanks. also in los angeles our dr. david. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> how serious and what should we be worried about? >> serious. the fifth major infection over of the last the two to three years and keeps happening. in this particular one, 179 patients exposed and what scares me they announced this happened end of january three weeks later notifying patients and sending them an at-home kit. sounds a little strange to me. >> why did it take them so long? >> i don't know. certainly that's worrisome,
7:06 am
because this is a bacteria that can be on your skin and not cause a problem until it gets in the blood stream but you can spread it. certainly identify individuals colonized, when on your skin early to get rid of it. >> how in the world has this happen at one of the best hospitals in the country? >> it's certainly an issue and i think goes back to this scope. this is a particular scope used predominantly in gallbladder and pancreatic procedures and has to curve to get around corners in the body. and those little corners, bacteria can accumulate and it either it wasn't cleaned well or the criteria for cleaning it are wrong and we need to certainly address that and there should be a red flag because this is several outbreaks that happened over the last several years and we have to have that red flag to make a change here. >> and doctor, a step back, too, and look at the larger issue of superbugs in hospitals and how we are going to change the way we treat patients and how we're going to deal with these. >> yeah. superbugs are a major problem that is growing. ke did a story together a few
7:07 am
months ago about for the first time now we have hope with new antibiotics that attack superbugs. until they're on the market it's a major issue. witness you have one of these particular bacteria it is very difficult to treat it. so we need to limit the antibiotics we use and obviously do simple things like washes the hands and washing these scopes and really taking caution so as not to spread it. >> all right, very scary stuff. thank you very much. much of the west can expect one more day of unusually high temperatures but the other two-thirds of the country is waking up this morning to brutally cold weather. overnight windchills hit single digits all the way down to atlanta. feels like it's below zero from minnesota to tennessee. international falls, minnesota, is earning its nickname today, ice box of the nation. the temperature there plunged below negative 30 this morning. wow. ashley roberts of cbs station wcco is in minneapolis where conditions are a bit better. good morning to you.
7:08 am
>> reporter: good morning. cold weather continues. the midwest is dealing with extreme bitter temperatures here in minnesota it's much of the same and in minneapolis, the temperature plummeted to well below vere oh. later today, it's not expected to climb over 6 degrees. >> whyout conditions. >> reporter: the dangerous mixture of snow and bone-chilling temperatures are creating treacherous conditions in the midwest. slicked over roads in southern michigan left drivers struggling to stay on track went. >> i've been sliding a lot in my van. no matter how much you've driven in it you can't prepare for it. >> reporter: subzero windchills are raising concerns about hypothermia and frostbite prompting chicago public schools to cancel. their fourth regular scheduled class cancelled this season. >> probably go into july or something. >> reporter: the blast of arctic air is pushing deep into the south plunging temperatures up to 40 degrees below normal and
7:09 am
freezing over streets. >> you hit a patch of ice especially on a bridge and you lose control of your vehicle. so i'm always concerned in weather like this. >> reporter: this transportation worker in knoxville had to jump out of the way of a pickup that lost control over an ice-covered section of interstate 40. >> what's crazy is first snow we get and we got to deal with something like this. >> reporter: in north carolina firefighters were able to rescue a teenager who had fallen through a partially frozen pond. >> a bunch of screaming, yelling. really bad. crying. i mean, stuck out there on top of the water like that was pretty rough. >> reporter: and at least six people have died in tennessee, where the extreme cold is threatening to push power grids to the brink. officials are asking everyone to conserve electricity as utility crews troush restore power to more than 30,000 people on wednesday. now, the coldest it's ever been here in minnesota is negative 60 degrees. that was back in february of 1996. it's not expected to get that bad this time around but in the
7:10 am
meantime, people are making sure to bundle up before they step outside. this current system may last through next week. >> ashley thanks. the massive snow pileup around boston trapped two people in nearby cambridge. five feet of snow fell off the roof of a skating rink last night and landed on them. a passerby started to dig them out. work crews finished the rescue. one rescuer calmed it five minutes of terror. the victims injured but not badly. earlier, the roof of this shopping center in central massachusetts collapsed under the snow. a post office and several stores are closed this morning, but roofs at harvard university of still okay. this drone video proves it. a harvard lab is using a drone to keep track of the snow. meteorologist danielle niles of our boston station wbz is tracking the forecast. danielle, good morning. >> good morning, everybody and to viewers in the west. talking about a weekend storm that may significantly impact the roof collapse concern in the northeast with milder air coming in this time around. changing from snow a wintry mix.
7:11 am
icing potential and then a change overto rain too. record lows in jeopardy again friday morning up and down the eastern seaboard from boston to southern florida. high temperatures today, though in the 60s and 70s, even 80s on the map for highs in phoenix, back down tucson today. 75 in redding and 60s in last this afternoon. >> thank you. this morning a white house summit on fighting violent extremism enters its third and final day. yesterday president obama addressed dignitaries from 60 countries. he calmed on muslim leaders in particular to confront twisted ideologies that groups like isis use to radicalize young people. >> we are not at war with islam. [ applause ] we are at war with people who have perverted islam. no religion is responsible for terrorism. people are responsible for violence and terrorism. >> a new cbs news poll shows isis as a major threat.
7:12 am
6a 65% now compared to 58% in october. most americans favor sending ground troops to iraq and syria to fight isis. that snub at 57% versus 47% four months ago. senior contributor michael morale in washington good morning. >> good morning. >> you heard people faulting president obama for failing to identify this as islamic extremism. do you think this is a pseudocontroversy over semantics or is this a failure to properly identify the enemy? >> norah, i understand what the president is saying and i agree with it. we do not want to create the perception that we are at war with a religion. but the reality is that al qaeda and isis believe they are religious warriors. they believe that they are fighting on behalf of their religion, for their religion. it's not rhetoric on their part. they really believe it. >> for the first time as norah just pointed out, the poll says the majority of americans are
7:13 am
now in favor of ground troops. you've said we really can't succeed without them. how likely is that to happen? >> i think we need ground troops fighting isis in both iraq and syria. the best outcome would be that the iraqi military would be that ground force. the second best outcome would than it would be a regional force of arab countries, and only as a last resort i think should we put american ground troops in, but we need ground troops. >> in the meantime how significant are isis gains in solidifying their position? >> so they've solidified charlie, their position in two places. one is in iraq and syria. their spread has been stopped but they've solidified their position in the areas that they coal. there were some cities they did not control early on they control them now and the second is the spread of their brand across a number of countries now. algeria, libya, egypt, yemen, afghanistan. and that's scary, because it
7:14 am
makes those groups more dangerous. the group we saw in tripoli that killed an american. the group we saw in -- in eastern libya that did those terrible beheadings. it makes those groups more dangerous. >> is it possible they could win the allegiance of all of these groups and therefore have a united front? >> i think that's one of the things we have to worry about and i think that's why we have to do two things here. we've done a very very good job at defending ourselves against terrorist trying to kill us. we have not done a good job at the president's talked about, not done a good job at stopping the creation of new terrorists. we have to deal with that much bigger problem. >> michael morale thank you so much. an american victim of isis remembered in her home town. hundreds gathered by kandcandlelight to honor kayla mueller. family, friends and strangers wore pink ribbons and listened to speakers reflect on her life and work. eric mueller became emotional

at a store near you. california this morning is considering an historic change in the workplace. a new bill called the fair scheduling act would require food and retail businesses with 500 more more workers to give at least two weeks notice when making staff schedules. employers would be forced to pay
8:12 am
for last-minute changes or cancellations. california would be the first state with such a law. "new york times" reporter jodi kantor drew national attention by shedding impact on last-minute scheduling. her coverage led starbucks to change its policies for 130,000 workers. good morning. >> good morning. >> interesting, california has the highest percentage of hourly workers. what does this bill hope to accomplish? >> the thing to remember workers scheduling has totally changed since the days you and i had high school jobs at the local mall. it's run by these incredibly powerful pieces of software that from a business point of view can do incredible things they can anticipate weather changes, say we need more workers in three hours. business is slow so we're going to send people home. what they really do is schedule people in realtime. now for the business that's great. for the workers, it is miserable because they never know when their hours are going to be. when you don't know when you'll
8:13 am
need to work you can't get a second job. you can't enroll in a community college class. if you're a parent the consequences are especially harsh. committing to something as basic as a school dropoff time is really hard if you have no idea when you're going to work. >> don't companies have the right to decide what works best for them as a company? >> that is exactly what they say. they say for us doing our workers scheduling a month ahead of time, two weeks ahead of time would be as crazy as this show doing its lineup two weeks ahead of time. we want to see what's going on before we commit to a schedule. >> then the san francisco chamber of commerce complained that requiring businesses to provide schedules two weeks in advance is a one size fits all. >> that's how they're going to push back. no business wants to have any restrictions put on how they schedule people. and this is especially tough, because the scheduling system is tied into every other computer system that runs the business. the question is one of basic
8:14 am
fairness. for example, a lot of workers are sent home now after even an hour or two after business -- if business is slow. so if i'm a low-income mom, making $9 an hour i've managed to arrange child care for the day which is not easy when you make that little money and then i'm sent home an hour after my shift begins even though i was scheduled for eight hours, is that really fair? >> i'm not paid. >> do you think this idea will spread? >> that's the question. legislation has been introduced in congress but as we often see with democratic legislation in a republican-controlled congress it is unlikely to move. i think the question with the california bill is where the negotiation ends at. if you look at the language of the bill it's pretty fuzzy. it leaves a lot of room. employers will have to pay penalties for changing schedules. what kind of penalties are we really talking about? >> explain what you exposed at starbucks and how they changed to try and find a compromise in the situation. >> they are giving workers more
8:15 am
notice now. i documented the life of one worker, a single mom, and what i was able to see unfortunately is the ripple effect of not knowing your schedule. she basically lost two homes, because the stress of not knowing her schedule was really hard on the other people she lived with. she couldn't continue her community college education. she had a 4-year-old son, the impact on him was enormous. >> how did starbucks change that? >> starbucks is now giving workers a little bit more notice. when i reported the story, people were getting three or four day's notice which is not really enough to even plan something like a doctor's appointment. >> what made you take it on? what did you see? you've written a lot about it. what did you see? >> i was fascinated by all of our lives are being affected more and more by algorithms and software and computers, right? these low-income workers are paying the highest prices. i was also fascinated by the fact that stores and restaurants are so different than we realize, when we go in as consumers, you know, i would say
8:16 am
to viewers, next time you're even in your local supermarket, mall store, ask the workers about their scheduling. because what we don't realize is that there are really sophisticated pieces of software that are determining everything that goes on in the store. >> really important subject. >> thank you. >> thank you jodi. a doctor wants to give up everything to go to mars on a one-way trip. it might just happen. >> i couldn't think of a single thing that would make me change your mined. >> if they want you, you're going? >> i'm going. and i'm not coming back. >> free coffee for jodi at starbucks. a finalist with a chance of making history. that's next on "cbs this morning." hi there! new colgate optic white express white. wait, don't you mean me? new colgate optic white express white

>> yeah, and if i don't go and someone else goes, fantastic. but i'm petrified that we won't go. >> she sees the contestants as pioneers and says she's ready to fill that role. >> i couldn't think of a single thing that would make me change my mind. i'm going. and i'm not coming back. >> zucker tells me if she is selected, there are two things she will really miss about earth. her husband of 22 years and her favorite food hamburgers. >> how long would it take them to get there? >> it takes about eight months. it's a a long journey. there are a lot of challenges in getting there. the radiation issues and there are the issues of the effects of space on the human body on bones and various on the eyes. there are a lot of challenges here. it's going to be awhile before this happens, if it happens at all. >> pick somebody who is enthusiastic. >> she sure is. >> i have people i could suggest
