7:03 am
welcome to "cbs this morning." as you wake up in the west, paris police are investigating what might be a new attempt at terror. officers shot and killed a man with a knife outside a police station. cellphone video shows police quickly backing away from the suspect when they saw what appeared to be an explosives vest. >> investigators say he was carrying a picture of an isis flag. this happened exactly one year after the attack on the "charlie hebdo" newspaper. charlie d'agata is in london. charlie? >> reporter: good morning. police say a man armed with a five tried to enter a police station in paris before being shot dead by police. at first it appeared he was wearing a suicide belt. sources say he had wires sticking out of his clothing. now police sources say that was a fake. there is a bomb squad onsite
7:04 am
just in case. this comes at a time when paris is on edge and high alert. it was a year ago today that two men, brothers, attacked the offices of "challenrlie hebdo." the whole place is now cordoned off. and at the moment police are treating this as a potential terrorist incident. norah? >> charlie, thanks. more breaking news, rescuers just wrapped up a complicated operation to save a group of miners trapped deep underground in upstate new york. 17 mine workers spent hours stuck overnight in lansing. the drama unfolded in one of the deepest salt mines in north america. demarco morgan has more. >> reporter: good morning. the crane arrived on scene overnight to help in the rescue effort. it took emergency responders ten hours to bring the miners up. they were brought up 14 at a time. they're now safely above ground and rescuers say they're in good
7:05 am
position. they got stuck in an elevator, trapped roughly 775 feet underground according to the ithaca fire department. that's about half the size of the empire state building. this all happened in lansing, new york, an hour south of syracuse. the mine is one of the deepest salt mines in the country. first responders sent down food, water, and blankets while the miners were trapped. the rescue operation wrapped up less than two hours ago. >> demarco, thanks. stock prices on wall street are dropping this morning.

7:06 am
stocks fell this morning in japan, britain, and germany. cbs news's business analyst jill schlesinger is with us to talk about what's causing all of this. good morning, jill. >> good morning. >> what's the fear here? and do you create more fear by shutting down your stock market? >> the big fear here is that the chinese government is actually seeing much worse growth than we know, and therefore they decided to devalue their currency today. that makes their exports cheaper overseas. the fear is if they're slowing down, the world slows down, bad for stocks. i believe these new trading triggers they put in effect have really exacerbated the problem. what we know from these triggers, at least in the u.s. markets, is that when you put them in place for a short period of time, you let there be a breather, then markets can resume trading, that's good. but when you shut them down after just 30 minutes, it can really get the anxiety level pretty high. >> and the u.s. stocks took a little bit of a tumble in part due to what's happening in china.
7:07 am
what do you expect today? >> i think it will be a bad day. on monday we started off with a horrible day, it looked like we were on the road to a 3% loss. so whatever happens today, hang in there, chill out, don't make too many big moves. right now the u.s. economy is actually in pretty decent shape. we have no evidence of a slowdown, at least at this point. >> jill schlesinger, thank you so much. as the presidential race heats up, vice president joe biden says he still thinks about what might have been. biden said on wednesday, "i regret it every day," when asked b an interviewer about his decision not to run. julianna goldman is in washington with more. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the vice president did a round of interviews to talk about president obama's executive actions on gun control. but just months after announcing he wouldn't challenge hillary clinton for the democratic nomination, he made clear it's still something he thinks about daily. >> i regret it every day.
7:08 am
but it was the right decision for my family and for me. >> reporter: vice president joe biden conceded he's still conflicted about his decision not to run for president. >> i plan on staying deeply involved. we've got two good candidates. there's real robust debate between hillary and bernie, as there would have been if i had gotten in the raises. >> reporter: biden's remarks come three months after announcing he would not run for president. >> i believe we're out of time necessary to mount a winning campaign for the nomination. >> reporter: the vice president always said it was the grief over his son beau from brain cancer that made the decision so difficult. >> i landed in a military base and met a whole group of military families. and a guy in the back yells, major beau biden, bronze star, sir, served with him in iraq. and all of a sudden, i lost it. how could you --
7:09 am
>> reporter: days after he announced he wouldn't seek the white house, biden told norah o'donnell how his son felt about his running. >> some people have written that beau on his death bed said, dad, you've got to run, and there was this sort of hollywood moment. nothing like that ever happened. as a matter of fact, it was almost the opposite. it was almost, dad, you've got to stay strong because the family is going to look to you, dad. >> reporter: biden made a point of praising bernie sanders and hillary clinton for debating the issues and not attacking each other personally, a not so subtle dig at the republican candidates. he made clear he's intent on staying relevant throughout this campaign. >> julianna, thank you. donald trump says ted cruz should ask a judge if he can be president. this is the latest twist in trump's new challenge to the canadian-born texas snoenator. major garrett is in pocahontas,
7:10 am
iowa, where ted cruz will make his first campaign stop of the day. major, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. ted cruz graduated with honors from harvard law school and was once a national collegiate debate champion. none of that has prepared him for the raging birther debate going on with donald trump or for trump'sen so eunsolicited advice. against all evidence, donald trump claims an aversion to birtherism. >> i'm doing this for the good of ted, because i like him, and he likes me. >> reporter: but for cruz, born in calgary, canada, to an american mother, the issue is a distraction. the real estate mogul offered cruz, a harvard-trained lawyer, some legal advice. >> you go to federal court to ask for what's called a declaratory judgment. >> reporter: cruz denied having a canadian passport and said the legal question is moot. >> as a legal matter it's quite
7:11 am
straightforward. i would note it has occurred many times in history. john mccain was born in panama but was a natural born citizen because his parents were u.s. citizens. >> reporter: but mccain offered no help. mccain faced similar questions during his 2008 white house run due to his birth on a u.s. military base overseas. >> that's different from being born on foreign soil. so i think there is a question. i am not a constitutional scholar on that. but i think it's worth looking into. >> reporter: in new hampshire, jeb bush called the issue phony. >> this is donald trump trying to put everybody into his own reality tv show. i'm not going to play it. >> reporter: rand paul says one thing is for certain. >> he is qualified and eligible to be the prime minister of canada. >> reporter: cruz is on a week-long bus tour of iowa, helpless to avoid the seeds of doubt trump is trying to plant here. cruz's strategy is simple.
7:12 am
harvest votes wherever he can find them. in pocahontas county, 7,000 people live. in 2012, rick santorum carried this county is 101 votes. >> thank you, major, well done. the west coast is bracing for more rain had to morning. record rain flooded roads, created mudslides and damaged homes. el niño is expected to bring more scattered showers and lower temperatures today to southern california. ben tracy is in california at a mobile home park covered in mud. ben, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. relentless rainstorms have caused mud to flow down from this canyon. they've had to bring in heavy machinery to stop the mudslides and clear it all out. the reason they're doing that is because this is a mobile home park. this mud comes down from the canyon, washes across here, and basically ends up in people's front yards. this has become such a problem here that firefighters decided
7:13 am
to evacuate ten mobile homes just last night. record breaking rainstorms are now creating serious problems in southern california. firefighters scrambled to pump 8 inches of water out of this orange county driveway, while those in other flood-prone neighborhoods hope retaining walls hold up the hill sides behind their homes. >> we're up to about 6,000 tons. >> reporter: across the region, emergency crews are a lifeline. in arizona they pulled a man and his young grandson from their hummer after they were swept up in raging floodwaters. >> unbelievable. i thank god a thousand times. >> reporter: in the los angeles area, a utility worker was killed while responding to a service call during the storm. neighbors say he appeared to slip, falling onto live electrical wires. further north, powerful storms downed power lines and toppled trees. a lightning strike last night
7:14 am
set this garage on fire. the storms have brought with them some much-needed relief after four years of drought. >> this is a good chance we'll see more snow this week than we did all last season. >> reporter: skiers are taking to the slopes in the mountains, while l.a. county is collecting below zero of gallons of stormwater to replenish groundwater supplies. in an average year how much water are you capturing in these places? >> on average we capture about 65 billion gallons of water. in wetter years such as this el niño, we can capture easily two to three times that amount. >> reporter: the heaviest rain has moved out of the area, and much of southern california will start drying out over the next two days. but forecasters warn this is just the beginning of a very wet el niño winter. >> ben, thank you so much. south korea vows this morning to retaliate against north korea's nuclear test. it says it will resume propaganda broadcasts across the
7:15 am
board. pyongyang faces growing doubt about its claim that it detonated a hydrogen bomb. margaret brennan is at the white house. margaret, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. president obama told the leaders of south korea and japan that the u.s. response will be strong. but short of military action, it isn't clear how to stop north korea's expanding nuclear program. the nuclear blast sparked cheers in north korea. >> ic condemn it unequivocally. >> reporter: and condemnation around the world. u.s. officials made a flurry of calls to reassure allies. the u.n. held an emergency meeting to plan how to punish leader kim jong un for exploding an atomic device, a powerful addition to north korea's arsenal. the u.s. is skeptical of those claims.
7:16 am
>> that initial analysis is not consistent with the claims that were made by the north koreans that they had successfully conducted a test of a hydrogen bomb. we have determined that they conducted a nuclear test last night. >> reporter: u.s. aircraft flying out of japan will now test for radiation to determine exactly what type of device north korea exploded at a site used for its past three nuclear tests. president obama continued a decades-long policy of slapping punishing financial sanctions on pyongyang to stop weapons development. he's also pressured china to rein him in. nothing has worked. financial sanctions are the likely option, but north korea is already the most severely sanctioned country in the world. >> margaret brennan at the white house, thanks. the restaurant chain
7:17 am
chipotle is promising to cooperate with a federal criminal investigation into food safety. the probe looks into a norovirus outbreak last year. chipotle's stock fell 5% wednesday, dropping $21 to close at $426. its shares have plunged more than $300 since october. michelle miller is here with what the investigation could uncover. michelle, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. recent norovirus and e coli outbreaks have taken a bite out of chipotle's earnings. sales were down in the last quarter of 2015. now the department of justice is investigating the chain. exactly what it's looking for is still unknown. >> chipotle subpoenaed. >> news of the criminal investigation. along with disappointing earnings sent chipotle's stock plunging wednesday. in a federal subpoena issued, chipotle was ordered to hand
7:18 am
over paperwork from their restaurant in simi valley, california. an alleged norovirus made 200 people were sickened there in august. >> they tend to stem from a series of problems without adequate protections being put in place. >> reporter: several of these incidents have plagued the popular chain. december sales fell 30% when more than a hundred students in boston became sick with norovirus after eating at one chipotle's restaurants. earlier in the fall, an e coli outbreak linked to the chain sickened people in nine states. >> consumers expect companies to be responsible, not perfect. >> reporter: the department of justice wouldn't comment on the current investigation. in a statement on wednesday, chipotle said, "we do not discuss details surrounding pending legal action. we will cooperate fully as the investigation moves forward."

sugar intake. now, excess sugars have always been discouraged. but this year, the guidelines took it a step further and they actually put an upper limit on how much excess sugar we should have which is less than 10% of our daily calories. that translates into ruffle 10 to 12 teaspoons of added sugar a day. when you put it in context one soda or sports drink has more than 10 to 12 teaspoons sugar a day and takes those things off the table. >> this is big because they have never gone specifically after sugar in this way. >> right. they have always said limit added sugar but now they said limited to exactly this amount or under. >> i think that is fascinating, because if you think about it, we have known the war on sugar exists but the idea that one can of soda or one sports drink could put you over the edge. i think that rings a bell for

morning." there's more there's more real news ahead. john dickerson looks at why donald trump is saying this now. but first, here's today's eye opener at 8:00. french officials say a man brandishing a knife tried to enter a plolice station in pari was arrested by police. the big fear is that the chinese government is actually
8:01 am
seeing much worse growth than we know. just months after announcing he wouldn't challenge hillary clinton, the vice president made clear it's still something he thinks about daily. >> he says he's a natural born citizen because his mother is a u.s. citizen. i hope he's right. >> forecasters warn this is just the beginning of a very wet el nino winter. overnight, president obama told the leaders of south korea and japan that the u.s. response will be strong. the outlet mall is where the spring of robberies began last april. the pair of jewelry thieves have a plan and they stick to it. american idol begins it's final season. >> now if you want to see mentally ill people sing, you'll have to go to the bus station. i'm charlie rose with gail king and norah o'donnell, paris police stopped what may have been a new terror attack. a man with a knife attempted to enter a police station in northern france, officers shot
8:02 am
and killed him. >> paris was already on edge because it was one year to the day of the attack on the "charlie hebdo" newspaper. >> a man was shouting allah akbar before police shot him dead. two sources said he had wires sticking out of his clothes. but police say that belt appears to be a fake. the bomb squad has been called in and the neighborhood is on lockdown. some of the city's transport services have been closed as a precautionary measure, this comes a year to the day after the attack on the newspaper "charlie hebdo." police say today's incident is more likely terrorism than a criminal act. the first votes in iowa aif will be cast in 25 days and a dispute between the two top republican candidates is heating up. donald trump says questions over ted cruz's citizenship could put
8:03 am
the gop in jeopardy. cruz who was born in canada says there's no question he's a thal born u.s. citizen because his mother is american. >> the child of a u.s. citizen born abroad is a natural born citizen. people will continue to make political noise about it. but as a legal matter, it's quite straight forward. >> donald trump was asked if he's doing to ted cruz what he did to president obama. the republican front-runner consistently questioned the president's birthplace. >> i have my own theory on obama. someday i'll write a book and it will be very successful. but ted should ask for a declaratory judgment because that will clear it all up. i'm doing this for the good of ted, because i like him, he likes me, we have a good relationship. >> cruz is probably saying please don't do me any favors.
8:04 am
>> john dickerson is in washington. good morning, sir. >> good morning, charlie. john, what does donald trump think he's doing and accomplishing here? >> he's just doing this for the good of ted krz, his friend. he mentioned this once before during the summer about this question of ted cruz's birthplace. i mentioned this a month ago and i said will you bring it up again, and he said only if he becomes in the time two. congratulations ted cruz, you're in the final two, which is the prize. so he's close enough that donald trump wants to raise doubts about him, wants to create issues, he's usually a counterpuncher e, in this case he's going after cruz without being provoked. >> and you see mccain weigh in, and is this essentially taking the knife in cruz's back and twisting it a little bit? >> mccain, you never know which
8:05 am
of those two he would go after. but you're right, he's not a fan of ted cruz, so he's happy in this case to pile on a little here. >> okay, but, john, is there any evidence that this will work? and how does it work? >> here's to the way it would work, there's no evidence there's a real burning question among conservatives about the citizenship requirement for the president. the concern is if they are a stalking horse for some other set of concerns, so if people start to furrow their brow about this issue. but ted cruz doesn't seem to have that problem among conservatives. so if it were to grow into some big issue it would be because people have some other concern that they can't articulate outloud and he doesn't have some sort of excuse for it. >> ted cruz is certainly not -- with the jumping the shark reference. >> he hasn't taken the bait on any of these needless that
8:06 am
donald trump has done. usually candidates have to respond, you don't want to be defined by your opponent, that's kind of in the playbook. but he's done the opposite and ted cruz has stayed away. it's interesting because if he were to engage and make this a big back and forth fight, there is the view among some that it actually gt le start to hear th attacks, the underlying attacks, even if it's being debunk ed and start to believe the underlying attacks even when it's being debunked. so for right now he's going to stay away from these fights. >> what about the momentum in iowa? >> cruz has the momentum, because he has the support ideological and he has a very good ground game. he's doing very well there now. and his opponents are saying he's going to win in a landslide, they're trying to set the expectations super high, because if he doesn't win by a

sometimes it's just because the athletes are often eager to just get back in the game. doctors are exploring ways to speed up the recovery. >> reporter: the basketball court is just one of the places where doctors have seen an increase this concussions among young people. at the moment, there is no specific treatment for concussions, but researchers at the university of buffalo are looking into weather prescribing exercise might just be that magic pill. >> is it giving you any symptoms? >> no. >> reporter: at the jacobs school of medicine in biomedical sciences, doctors interviews 15-year-old cameron for concussion symptoms. she got that concussion, her first, playing basketball. >> i was going to take a charge and a girl went up for the lay-up and pushed as she went and i fell back and slammed my head against the ground. >> does that hurt?
8:14 am
>> the doctor examined cameron and invited her to join a my clinical trial on acute concussions among teens between 13 and 17, the allege group that takes the longest to recover. unlike most con cussed patients, most are prescribed exercise days after the concussion, instead of just rest. >> in one study we showed that the exercise actually changed their brain from abnormal to normal. >> so cameron walked on a treadmill, every day for 20 minutes at a gentle pace while monitoring her heart rate. >> reporter: how could this be a game changer? >> we don't have a treatment for concussion right now, there's no pill you can take. right now all you can do is sort of wait until the symptoms go away. >> but in this case? >> in this case, we're studying

8:17 am
remember, this is a study that they're conducting and it will be at least another eight months to a year before the results are in. >> that's really important information. >> we both shook at the same time, because that mother said, the more information you have, the better for your kid. there's a new year's resolution you might want to put on hold. we'll look at the% time of the year to join a gym an how you can work out for free. that's next on "cbs this morning."

8:22 am
>> absolutely. you know what? it makes sense because we are human beings and what do we do? we get say we are going to the gym new year's resolution and we sign up for the annual membership and project we will do that throughout the year. when most people blow it off after the first few weeks. the real issue is here you've got to be clear with yourself. how much are you going to use this gym? does that annual membership really make sense? maybe doing a monthly membership and testing it out for a few months is a better idea and then do the annual membership. >> monday is the busiest day? >> monday is the busiest day. january, of course, the busiest month. so if you have not signed that paper work yet, i would advise you to wait because in february, when the gym empties out, you might be able to get a better in fact, many gyms offer the best discounts in the dead of summer when everybody is hanging out outside. so you want to check around and try to get a deal that is good for you. >> can you get some rider to

8:35 am
day long to pull off some very crucial and hard-to-do shots and hour and a half of live shots and natural theater and this propensity that we needed to keep up with. but worse than that was for all of us, it was just about allowing ourselves to put our trust in somebody else's unique process, and that is what this was for us as actors, because a lot of this was thought about beforehand in great detail, but we needed to give ourselves over completely to something entirely new, and, you know, it created a great camaraderie between the entire cast and crew and director. >> but also the most demanding and toughest experience you've had as an actor? >> well -- >> by nature or physical? >> by nature of doing a movie, yeah. this was certainly the toughest film i've ever been a part of. >> the interesting thing about
