[ laughter ] welcome to the weekend, everyone. a bitter later we'll take you on a roadtrip with a good-old paper map. i know is sounds absurd in the age of gps, right? you'd be surprised at how map making is more popular than it's been in years. mark albert will show us how one of the oldest navigation tools is seeing a boom. plus, his journey began as a guitarist in china of china's first metal bands. it landed him as one of the hottest chefs in new york. hear chef brian tsao's incredible story in "the dish." the tribute took 60 artists and more than four years to make. deal inside an epic album honoring the grateful dead and more on "the national" in our saturday session. breaking news in the crash of egyptair flight 804. the egyptian government claims searchers have located the
plane's flight data recorders, the black boxes which may provide key clues about the crash of the airbus 320. all 66 people on board were killed. >> the flight data recorders were located in the same location where debris from the plane was found. these are the first image of that debris. in another development, french investigators confirm that the aircraft data did report smoke in the cabin before the plane disappeared. holly williams is in cairo with more. >> reporter: good morning. u.s. government sources have told us that the information they have indicates that there was smoke on the plane before it crashed and that it may have come from one of the engine. it is the flight recorders or so-called black boxes that could explain what went wrong. the wreckage was found 180 miles north of the egyptian coastline. the same area where flight 804 swerved wildly, swinging 90 degrees to the left and then spinning in a circle to the
right, all while plummeting and then falling off the radar and into the water. data published by "av herald," an aviation website, appears to list automated transmissions from the airplanes in the minutes before -- in the airplane in the minutes before it disappeared off radar screens. first, it shows smoke in the bathroom and avionics bay, then alerts from the plane's flight control systems. search teams from egypt, the u.s., and european countries are still hunting for more wreckage. egyptair has emphasized the experience of the pilot and co-pilot, with over 9,000 flying hours between them, seeming to cast doubt on the possibility of human error. though there have been no credible claims of responsibility for the crash, according to u.s. investigators, the downing of a russian plane in egypt in october by a suspected bomb for which isis
claimed responsibility has many believing that terrorism is still the most likely explanation. >> we can handle it. >> reporter: like his government, retired egyptian general mahmoud halaft plays down the threat posed by islamic militants here despite an isis affiliate in egypt that's killed hundreds of police officers and soldiers. >> not a big inme -- >> reporter: it's not a big enme? >> no. no, no, no. >> reporter: mechanical failure, human error, and terrorism all possible causes. so far none have been ruled out. anthony? >> holly williams in cairo. thanks. for more on the egyptair disaster, we're joined by cbs news senior national security analyst juan zerrate from our washington bureau. good morning. >> good morning, anthony. >> location of the black box, obviously a big break. >> critically important. you not only have more flight
data but voice recordings that may indicate what caused the smoke as well as any potential explosion or activity that brought the plane down. that's a major data point, major moment in the investigation. >> when you heard about smoke, that the message was transmitted, what was your first thought? what potentially could have happened? >> well, it raises more questions i think than it answers because that certainly raises the specter of an explosion. maybe some activity in the lavatory by a passenger, a suspect. also the potential of an electrical failure. i think that's a potential problem in this case. >> early on, egypt's aviation minister said this was likely caused by a terrorist attack. were you surprised the egyptians said this given that they've been reluctant to point terrorism in the past? >> yes. it was an early jump to conclusion by the egyptians and
was a surprise given that in the metrojet case when the russian airliner was taken down, the egyptians were quite reluctant to come to any conclusion even after there were facts indicating that there was a terrorist involvement. >> the other big question everyone is wonder, will someone step forward? will there be a group that claims responsibility if this is, in fact, a terrorism alert? were there any pending threats, anything on your radar now that could be the potential answer to that? >> authorities in the u.s. and europe and egypt had not seen any pending threats to this particular airline, to this route. that was a major vacuum in terms of the activity and information around this attack. one of the things that officials are looking for is any information coming out of the groups of interest, isis, al qaeda, that may have been targeting this airline. they have not seen any
information to date, and that's curious. >> juan jara zarate in washing. thank you. the egyptair crash is prompting a closer look at airport security here at home. kris van kleave with that part of the story. >> reporter: at los angeles nation airport, police are eliminating or restricting airport employee access at more than 150 doors within passenger terminals. they are also adding more police officers to focus on potential eventually abilities -- v vulnerabilities. this as the obama administration is urging tsa to investigate longer lines. >> we need to increase security at tsa to meet the growing demands of the travel population and as we learn more in what my mae have happened in the crash of egyptair. >> reporter: last year, tsa screeners failed to catch 95% of mock explosives or banned
weapons brought through security checkpoints. since then, at least two aircraft overseas have been bombed. what's your comfort level with your officers' ability to spot some of the types of explosives we've seen that targeted aircraft this year, bombs inside of soda cans, bombs inside of laptops? >> i'm very confident that we have dramatically improved our ability to do that. we focus specifically on the types of devices that have both been talked about in the news, as well as things that we see coming. >> reporter: critics say the tsa should have also seen the historically long lines coming and acted before tens of thousands missed flights. illinois senator dick durbin. >> it is unfair to the traveling public. it is unsafe in terms of the management of airports, and it has to be changed. >> reporter: the tsa is moving k-9 teams and more officers to the airports in the chicago area to deal with the long lines here. the agency reports signups for tsa when pre-check, vetted scre,
have topped 15,000 a day. compare that to this time last year. that's nearly four times as many daily enrollments. for "cbs this morning saturday," kris van kleave, which is. the man shot by a secret service officer outside the white house remains in critical condition. the alleged gunman is identified as jesse oliveri of pennsylvania. police found ammunition in a car believed to be his. more from chip reid. >> reporter: the incident set off a flurry of activity by secret service officers and agents with guns drawn, even on the white house roof. the grounds and nearby streets were locked down for more than an hour. the shooting happened outside a secret service points on the southwest side of the white house compound. a man walked to the gate and raised a weapon, according to the secret service. uniform division officers gave numerous verbal demands for the subject to stop and drop the
firearm. when the subject failed to comply, he was shot once by a secret service agent and taken to custody. a source tells cbs news the man suggested he wanted to die. a so-called suicide by cop. police recovered his weapon. the president was golfing at a nearby military base at the time, but the vice president was safe inside the white house complex. a white house statement says no one within or associated in the white house was injured, and everyone in the white house is safe and accounted forment the latest in a string of security incidents at the white house in recent years. in 2011, a man fired eight rounds from his car into the building, and a number of jumpers have scaled the fence including a man in 2014 who made it all the way inside the mansion before being arrested, eluding eight secret service members. a followup report cited communications snafus and severe understaffing of uniformed officers. a plan to almost double the height of the perimeter fence is in the works.
ch chip reid, the white house. second amendment rights are again an issue in the presidential race after the national rifle association endorsed donald trump on friday. julianna goldman has more on that. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. donald trump may have won the endorsement of the national rifle association, but the group's leaders had more to say about hillary clinton at their annual convention, and that's because some of trump's earlier held positions are vigorously opposed by the nra, so trump took a similar tactic and tore into the democratic front-runner. >> ladies and gentlemen, the next president of the united states, donald trump. >> reporter: armed with his nra endorsement, donald trump said the second amendment is on the line this november. >> crooked hillary clinton is the most anti-gun, anti-second amendment candidate ever to run for office. the only way to save our second amendment is to vote for a person that you all know named
donald trump, okay. >> reporter: hillary clinton has not said the second amendment should be abolished. she has called for stricter gun laws, including universal background checks and gun-free zones for schools and public facilities which trump now opposes. >> gun-free zones. we're getting rid of gun-free zones, okay. i can tell you. >> reporter: today trump says americans should be able to carry guns for self-protection, and he does not believe in an assault weapons ban or that background check should be expanded. after the sandy hook elementary school massacre, trump applauded president obama's speech calling for stricter gun laws, tweeting, "president obama spoke for me and every american." in his 2000 book, "the america we deserve," trump wrote, "republicans walk the nra line and refuse even limited restrictions." he also wrote, "i support the ban on assault weapons and a slightly longer waiting period to purchase a gun." >> we have to unite, and we have to unite right now. >> reporter: instead of addressing trump's past and
present views, nra executive director chris cox said the group's goal was defeating the democratic front-runner. >> the damage that would be done by her policies and supreme court picks will destroy individual freedom and, therefore, destroy the america we all love. >> reporter: one recent poll showed that 86% of americans say gun policy is important in this election. this is a fight hillary clinton's campaign wants to have. today she'll keynote an event promotie ining stricter gun law appearing with the mother of trayvon martin and other parents who have lost children to gun violence. >> thank you. for more on campaign 2016, "washington post" political reporter phillip bump joins us. it tells us how much the nra hates hillary clinton if they'll back someone that's flip-flopped on gun control like donald trump has. >> very few things centralize the republican party's interest in this race more than their dislike of hillary clinton. that's across the board. i think the nra endorsement is
evidence of that. >> the newest cbs news/"new york times" poll show people are now uniting behind trump. what's the change? >> there was some question after he won indiana, ted cruz dropped out, john kasich. the people who didn't like trump were trying to come to terms with that. i think they've come to terms with it. they are centralizing in part because of the dislike of hillary clinton. we have two very unpopular candidates. i think one of the mobilizing factors for republicans is they don't want hillary clinton. they may not like donald trump, but they really don't want president hillary clinton. >> the same poll shows trump gaining ground against hillary clinton, the race tightening. what do you see? >> he's gaining ground against both democrats which indicates this is republicans coming home. his favorability numbers have generally been lower than hillary clinton's. but because republicans view him slightly better, they're about even at this point. that's what that's about. >> when you look at the demographics, female voters are obviously very important. how are both candidates doing
with them? >> right. they are doing differently. one of the things we've seen is a lot of -- >> politically smart move there -- >> i've got to be judicious. it's early in the morning. you know, donald trump is disliked by women, by people of color. mil is disliked very much by white men. they each have groups who dislike them very much. i don't think either is prohibitive. i don't think either means, well, this candidate is doomed. i think that it is tougher for donald trump because the electorate is growing more and more diverse, and that's a group of people who really don't like him. >> 60% of women polled have an unfavorable view of donald trump k. he turn it around? >> it's hard to say. a year ago, he had terrible numbers with republicans. he was doing very badly. everyone looked at him negatively. he turned it around. but that was a republican electorate, a lot more favorable to him than the broader general electorate. can he? sure, will he, i'm not sure. >> give us insight into bernie sanders' strategy. people are wondering is he wounding the eventual nominee by
staying in the race. >> i think it's important to remember, and i think a lot of democrats once they step back remember that in 2008 the race was much, much more contentious at this point. hillary clinton was a lot closer than is bernie sanders. she was fighting for, v focusin inequality. i think he sees it as his best time to do that. >> thank you very much. tomorrow on "face the nation," john dickerson's guests will include presidential candidate bernie sanders. it's shaping up to be a wet and stormy weekend for millions of americans. heavy rain in the southeast washed out nascar track activity at the charlotte motor speedway on friday. let's find out more about what kind of weather we can expect across the nation.
ed curran of our chicago station wbbm joins us. good morning. good morning. more rain for the east coast as we have an active day. that includes charlotte with thunderstorms peaking in the late afternoon, early evening hours. severe storms in the southeast, north carolina through the eastern part of florida. a marginal chance for severe storms. a better chance throughout the heart of the country with marginal in the green and slight. that's a higher level of severe or chance for severe with damaging wind, hail, isolated tornadoes in wyoming and montana. also down here in kansas and oklahoma, and into texas. again, damaging wind, hail, and perhaps the isolated tornado or two. vinita? >> meteorologist ed occur an of wbb mtv. thank you. it is time to show some of the headlines. the "oklahoman" reports governor fallon has vetoed legislation that would have effectively outlawed abortion in oklahoma. fallon says the measure is vague
and would not withstand a legal challenge. it would have made it a felony for doctors to perform abortions. the governor says the bill does not make clear what medical circumstances would be considered necessary to preserve the life of the mother. legislators are considering a move to override her veto. "the boston globe" reports camille cosby testified that she had no knowledge that her husband allegedly gave women drugs and had sex with them. federal court documents released friday show mrs. cosby repeatedly sparred with an attorney representing a group of women accusing bill cosby of defamation. transcript was from an eight-hour deposition conducted in february. "the hollywood reporter" says actor alan young, better known as wilbur -- >> wilbur! >> you working on that? he's passed. young hosted a variety show on cbs before landing the part of the straight man playing opposite a talking horse on the 1960s sitcom. young also voiced characters on the cartoon series "duck tales."
>> a horse is a horse, of course, of course, and no one can talk to a horse, of course, unless, of course, the horse is the famous mr. ed. >> i like that but the whole thing. >> thanks. the "los angeles times" reports an 83-year-old illinois woman has tracked down her birth mother who was forced to give her up for adoption in 1933. 99-year-old eileen wagner could not believe her ears when the phone rang earlier this month and she heard the voice of her long-lost daughter. adoption advocates say this is the longest span of time between adoption and reconnection they have ever heard of. >> wouldn't you love to hear what they talked about? >> can't imagine the conversation. "the defense news" reports the navy has taken ownership of a futuristic new warship and found just the right captain to man it. the "uss zumwalt" is part of a $22 billion new class of warship. it will be commissioned in october. captain james a. kirk will be the ship's commander, not to be confused with "star trek's"
captain james t. kirk. do you have an imitation there? >> no. i can do my wilbur again. that's all i got. 21 after the hour. here's the weather for your weekend. coming up, the red planet is in sight. we'll show the newest plan tote put humans within -- planet to put humans within reach of mars in the next dozen years. plus -- >> reporter: with gps on our smartphones, who even needs paper maps anymore? i'm mark albert. coming up on "cbs this morning saturday," we'll introduce you to the mapmakers of the future and find out why demand for them is greater than ever. ,,,,,,,,,,,

we have a daughter who's 3. i'll pregnant with our second child. a sorority moves in next door. we get -- we're also trying to sell our house. we get very confronted with the fact that these girls are rowdy and worse than the fraternity. we have this young daughter and another on the way. we're like, is our little girl going to turn out like these young women -- >> they're selling weed. >> yes. doing everything under the sun. it's a confronting experience for them. are they good parents, are they bad parents, yeah. >> continuing on the indelicate theme, i guess a scene includes a greasy meat and your shirtless co-star zac efron. why was that hard to get through? >> gosh. it's a -- there's a sequence in the film where they try and distract the sorority. so we had to -- yeah. there was this piece of meat that was seasoned in like thyme
and rosemary. and they injected it with baby oil. it was disgusting. it took a few hours to get it off my hand. poor zac. >> who is the audience for the fil film? >> charlie, clearly. >> you know charlie rose. >> i'll be there. >> i can tell. no, it's really for the young kids. but it's very funny. we haven't done our job if you're not leaving the cinema laughing. >> you don't allow yourself to be a nagging wife? >> no. unfortunately, sometimes? comedies, traditionally the wife is the buzzkill. kind of like, don't go out and whatever. i was not interested in that. we sat down with the director early on in the first film and said, let's make her as irresponsible and stupid as him. let's reverse the stereotypes that's been ingrained. ,,,,,,,,
it might be the most vivid portrait of mars we've ever seen, and it's stunning. nasa released this image of the red planet taken by the hubble space telescope. it comes as mars is about to make its closest approach to earth in 11 years. the heavens are growing our -- drawing our planet closer to mars, lockheed martin is bringing us closer to circling than in years. >> and we spoke about the plan to have a manned laboratory orbiting mars by 2028. editor sophie bush will be joins us. it will be orbiting the planet. what tell do? >> the idea is this is called mars base camp. it will be made up of the orion crew capsule which will take astronauts into deep space.
this is something that nasa has been working on for a while, and they're planning to launch it without humans in 2018 and put it through its paces. it will link with a habitat and landing module that would give astronauts more room to move. and there would be a secondary capsule for backup and traveling. the idea is that nasa would launch the components including solar panels on the srs, space launch system, the heavy rocket, and launch these into space and assemble them in space. put them around the moon and assemble them around the moon. astronauts would take these to mars, a six to nine-month journey. >> wow. why are they stressing an orbiting lab as opposed to landing on mars? >> there are a lot of obstacles to landing on mars. when nasa landed the curiosity, they what they called seven minutes of terror. the seven minutes it takes for the rover to enter the atmosphere and land. it's a complicated maneuver.
there's lots of chances to go wrong. the contents of the landing capsule are subject to a lot of g force. there is hard for a robot. it's harder when you've got squishy humans in the ship. you've got obstacles to landing humans that you don't have if you're just putting it into orbit. >> we often hear about plans. but does the technology already exist, or is this a plan that will require them to also build technology make it happen? >> a lot of technology does already exist. they don't have to invent any suspended animation. they don't have to use warp drive. they can actually use the orion cap suls which is already being developed, the space launch system, and lockheed is already working on creating the laboratory module and habitat modules that they'll need to be part of the system. >> what are the biggest benefits of having them working in orbit doing this? >> right now we've got rovers on the surface of mars. people on earth steer them. the problem is, mars is a long
way away. takes a signal 15, 20 minutes to get from mars to the earth. if you're driving a rover and a a bump, you won't know for 15 minutes. if there's an interesting feature, you'll be past it by the time it's on the screen. by putting people there, they can steer the rovers better than on earth. they developing flying drones to explore mars' surface and have people at base camp controlling those. they could take scoops and samples from the surface and send it to base camp to test it. >> if i learned anything from "the martian," they need a botanist. thank you very much:a stunning look inside a crumbling campaign. the makers of a new documentary about disgraced former congressman anthony weiner. first, here's the weather for your weekend.

far have been in people who traveled from latin america. health officials expect mosquito-borne infections will occur here soon. there's a big battle in washington, as we've talked about before, about funding to fight zika. where do things stand right now? >> well, there's still no money that's been allocated. i spoke to tom frieden, head of the cdc, and he told me it's mind-boggling, this is no way to fight an epidemic. we're basically nickelling and diming the response when we know there are urgent needs that aren't getting met. the latest cdc numbers show there are hundreds of women who have pregnant and have zika infection. the ones in the united states, there's no evidence as you point out that they got it from a mosquito in the united states that was infected with zika. these are felt to be travel related. what the public health official i'm talking to are saying is, look, we've had all winter to think about this, to prepare. there is like watching an accident happening in slow motion. we don't know how big the accident is going to be, but do we really have to wait for the
first case of mosquito that's infected with zika being in the united states, then turning around and biting somebody? now you have local transmission. do we have to wait before we go go high gear and give public health officials the funds they say they desperately need? >> what would the funding help do? >> sure. there are three main areas where funds are urgently needed, even though more than that. first and foremost would be for vaccine development. regardless of whatever epidemic we're fighting, if it involves infectious disease, getting vaccines out, protecting the community, that's really the foundation of how we fight it best. we know that to encourage researchers to focus on it and prioritize it, that takes funding. you know, the second area has to do with making testing for zika faster, more accurate, and more widely available. if that one mosquito in the u.s. gets -- con contracts the zika virus and is able to pass it on, we'll be able to test people immediately and get them results
immediately. especially men and women who may be trying to have babies. finally, just about controlling the local mosquito population. if there are mosquitoes carrying zika, communities, small communities need to be able to respond immediately. they need to be able to spray, get rid of water standing around, and educate the community how to protect themselves. >> moving on, more than 15,000 americans suffer a spinal cord injury ever year. one treatment is offering new hope for patients and their families. here's jon with more. >> there's nothing we could have done to change that night. >> on april 9th, 2013, james mason was an accident waiting to happen. he had been drinking, and his stepfather, bob, tried to stop him from driving. >> he grabbed on to me. i grabbed him. he pulled my leg out, we fell back. >> i remember hitting the ground. i remember the whole way with the stretcher. >> the most devastating part of the process was the first day they lifted him out of the bed and nothing moved.
just his head. that really hit hard. at that point, i wanted to jump off a bridge. >> mason was left a quadriplegic with just the slightest ability to move his arms. doctors said he'd never walk again. gambutti, a retired cop, became his full-time caregiver and found an experimental trial at new york's mt. sinai hospital. we spoke with mason just before he underwent delicate neck surgery to try to repair the damaged portion of his spinal cord by injecting stem cells. >> what's going on in your head? what are you hoping for? >> i'm super excited, ready to just get it done and go back to rehab and start proving the doctors wrong even more. >> reporter: the surgery performed by dr. arthur jenkins took four hours. researchers have followed james and five other patients all with severe spinal cord injuries. squeeze as hard as you can.
we met three months after the surgery. notice any change? >> my wrist has gotten a lot stronger. i'm able to grasp a lot of things. >> reporter: after another three months -- >> i think it's almost doubled with how much i've gotten better and sensation in my feet. i can feel pressure on to them throughout my legs. they've noticed that i have a little movement into my hips now. >> the company sponsoring the trial reported four of six patients found improvement in muscle strength and function. dr. jenkins, not affiliated with the company, has continued to monitor mason. >> my two cents is that it worked. this changed his neurologic recovery and function, that his actual functional improvement is from the stem cells that were injected. >> reporter: mason does not blame his stepfather for the accident. in fact, he's grateful. >> if i had gotten in my car, i could have killed someone else, someone's mother, someone's father, someone's child. if i would have survived through that, i wouldn't have been able
to live with myself for that. >> it's tough when people say, i'm sorry. don't be sorry. i still have him here. >> wow. >> i spoke to mason's dad who feels that he's getting stronger in terms of his upper extremities. not moving his legs but having more sensation. and mason absolutely believes the stem cells have helped him in his recovery. it's impossible to know exactly what happened there. were the stem cells responsible for rebuilding his neural connections. we'll have to have more study here before we can say widespread. but it is encouraging to see. finally, it's probably happened to many of you. while looking right at someone you knoll, call them the wrong -- you know well, you call them the wrong name. it's called misnaming. there are new studies in patterns on why it occurred. mixed up names usually come from the same social categories. you might call a good friend by another friend's name or a family member by another family

>> it obviously didn't work the way he wanted it to. you know, of course when he got into the campaign, it was a genuine effort to get back into politics and to be in public service again. which i think is a place where he's comfortable and feels he belongs. didn't go the way he opened, of course. >> but wonderful reviews. what has the couple said? have they seen it? >> they haven't seen it yet. we offered to show it to them a number of months ago. we offered a number of times. they don't. to see it. they haven't wanted to see it. anthony says he's not eager to relive it. which of course we can understand. >> tells you a lot right there. jonh kriegman and elyse steinberg, a riveting film. tells you a lot about where you are in this country.
