for men anymore. under a plan making its way through congress, the house committee just approved a measure requiring women to register for the draft just like men. bay area congresswoman jackie speier voted in favor of the amendment. senate lawmakers still need to sign off on the plan. the chancellor of uc-davis may have a different job title coming up. linda katehi has just been put on administrative leave. she was heading the university when outside consultants were hired to help clear the internet of video showing campus police pepper spraying student protestors. an investigators is under way to see how the chancellor was involved in hiring family members for campus positions. the warriors put on quite a show last night at oracle arena without the mvp. the fireworks went on, on and off the court last night. they dominated from start to finish and fans were not disappointed. >> we are all-around team. lets the team build chemistry without him so when they bring

[ laughter ] >> the warriors are going to take on the clippers or the portland trail blazers in round 2 of the play-offs. go, "dubs." >> better to be with steph than without. >> yeah, that's true but they did a great job. many in fact bay area still can't believe prince is gone. there is one big money question his family members just can't ignore. he didn't leave a will. cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger tells just this awkward subject is one we have to face. now, jim, prince died without a will. what happens now and what lessons can we learn, jill? >> reporter: this is called dying intestate. when you don't have a will, the state, in this case minnesota, determines what happens and who should get what. you can imagine giving the size and complexity of this estate that this is going to be a mess
5:40 am
that will take years to sort out. but there's a lesson here for all of us. don't let your fear of dealing with the estate process stop you from taking control and reducing the potential for future controversy. you know what? at the very least, write down an outline of what you would want to happen to your assets in the event of your death. i would much prefer hiring an estate attorney to do it the right way in accordance with state laws. but having something basic in place is certainly better than nothing. >> okay. so explain to us what exactly a will is and are there other documents that we need? >> well, a will is a legal document and ensures that your assets are passed to your designated beneficiaries in accordance with your wishes. in the drafting process, you name an executor, that's the person or the institution that oversees the distribution of your estate. if you have minor children, you need to name a guardian for them. that's usually the stumbling point especially for young
5:41 am
parents. two other important documents that i recommend. a healthcare proxy. that allows you to appoint someone to make healthcare decisions on your behalf if you lose the ability to do so, and a durable power of attorney. now, that allows you to appoint someone to act as your agent. so maybe someone who could withdraw money from a bank, pay bills, respond to a tax inquiry. the only other documents that people might contemplate especially wealthier ones are various trust instruments to help your estate planning process i have a bunch of estate planning checklists at i know it's a weird topic, but gosh,you know, imagine the mess you could leave behind without a will. >> it's still shocking that prince didn't have one. but. all right, jill schlesinger, thank you. parents are getting a chance to spend more time with their kids today. it's national take your son and daughter to work day. gives kids a chance to indulge their curiosity and see what mom and dad do all day long. 37million americans are expected to participate in more than 3 million workplaces. it is 5:41 right now.
5:42 am

most fast food places use formulas to create their combos. but all that math, doesn't always equal something tasty. at my place, you can get a mouthwatering sourdough bacon ranch combo. with a full size beef patty, bacon, and creamy ranch sauce, on toasted sourdough bread. plus hot & salty fries and a freestyle drink for just $4.99. because flavor always beats formulas. the sourdough bacon ranch combo, just $4.99 for a limited time. combos done my way. look, i know you're a cow and all. and you may not know what i'm talking about, but, uh. the yogurt made from your milk, is delicious.

or bury it. it had cost $30,000 to remove it to the landfill. a tense encounter in the sky when birds flew into the path of a plane. here's what the american airlines plane looked like after the bird strike. the jet was carrying 150 people and 6 crew from seattle to dallas. but after the birds blocked its way, the plane turned around quickly and landed safely on the seattle tarmac. the airline promised everybody would get to dallas as soon as possible. a spacecraft can land on mars in a few years. spacex announced they plan to send an unmanned spacecraft to the red planet in 2018. elon musk said he wanted to send humans to mars around 2025. nasa said today they are behind the plan. spacex hopes to send a modified version of the dragon spacecraft called red dragon to survey the terrain and collect soil samples from the planet. >> who is going to get that cool assignment to cover that?

5:48 am
it fixed. all other mass transit on time. westbound 580 accident on the right shoulder so slow past the scene. typical from tracy to greenville. slower towards 680 but once you connected traffic is good. 880 northbound near the coliseum no delays. southbound okay through this portion. but you are going to see brake lights as you work your way into hayward this morning. if you are heading across the san mateo bridge no troubles here. 880 to 101, still a really nice ride. it's been 13 minutes for your drive time so far all morning long. so you can use that instead of the bay bridge this morning. north 101 out of san jose looks like we are starting to see a backup. 280/680 is really where it starts to fill in. northbound stays slow at least almost to 880 and then you get a break into the peninsula. 280 looks good as well as guadalupe parkway.
