7:13 am
being defined by california's present. >> reporter: in his victory speech tuesday night, democrat gavin newsom, front-runner for governor, highlighted the role the governor will play. the house needed 23 to gain control. with the results still coming in, it looks like the democrats made it on the ballot in all of california's potential swing districts. that will help the party as it looks for pickup opportunities nationwide. inner parts of the country it was a good night for female candidates. a win would make her the state's second latina executive but she faces a tough fight against gop congressman steve pearce. in minnesota they hope to make kristi noem the first, pitting her against billie sutton. but in alabama four term congresswoman martha robey was
7:14 am
challenged in the republican primary and forced into a runoff election. robey was the first gop person of congress to take back her endorsement of then candidate donald trump following the release of that now infamous "hollywood access" tape. more signs of how women are doing. some can make even more history. in new mexico, democrat deb haaland is seeking to become the first native-american women elected to congress. and in california, yonge kim hopes to be the first american korean woman elected to congress. >> how are the results shaping up to you? >> we at cbs say they're at a toss-up. >> thanks. good to have you at the table. guatemala's disaster agency ordered new evacuations after a sign of volcanic activity. at least 75 people are dead from the explosion in the volcan de
7:15 am
fuego. 192 people are listed as missing. the volcano sits about 30 miles from the capital of guatemala city, home to about 3 million people. manuel bojorquez is near hard hit el rodeo. manuel, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. torrential downpours overnight caused new toxic flows to seep on to the streets. it's part of the reason roads like this have been blocked. and get this, eight to ten moderate explosions per hour hampering rescue efforts. on tuesday, the mini eruptions tempered a new wave of moderate ruptures per hour, hampering rescue efforts. on tuesday the mini eruptions triggered a new wave of evacuations, a reminder of the volcano's wrath. but the sudden eruptions didn't stop courageous rescue crews, even though in some areas teams had to run from toxic ash to safety. this is the military bringing more and more people in. and this is the town, one of the

hardet hit, and we see police and fire, paramedics, as well as everyday people trying to figure out how they can help. colonel oscar perez figueroa. >> have you ever seen destruction like this? >> no, this is the first time in history. >> reporter: to get a better sense of the devastation, we went up in a helicopter with the guatemalaen military. we spotted a team of rescuers working through the dangerous conditions. from up here you can see the flow of lava went for miles. what we're told is you cannot travel the usual route. as the chance for finding survivors fades many are still hope tell to reunite with their loved ones. we spoke with martina perez calderon, a mother desperately searching for her daughter. no bun knows how they are doing saysf they are still alive, she the is no pain like having to
7:17 am
look for your child. the deadly flow can reach more than 700 degrees in some areas making search and rescue efforts nearly impossible. and with the rain mixing with knee-deep ash in some areas the search for survivors is that much more difficult. >> manuel bojorquez doing incredible reporting there in guatemala. thank you. the kilauea volcano in hawaii destroyed hundreds more homes in two oceanfront communities. draur ma'am dramatic aerial video shows rivers of lava spewing from the volcano. the flows wiped out communities. all 490 homes are believed to have been lost. these two pictures were taken two days apart. the lava filled in all of kapoho bay extending nearly a mile from the coastline. lonnie quinn shows how the volcano compares to the one in guatemala.
7:18 am
lonny, good morning. >> well, volcan de fuego and kilauea are very different. volcan de fuego is nay rower. when it breaks through the earth at a number of different openings, composite volcanos will erupt violently. most of the eruptions have traveled 30 miles underground and it breaks through the earth. composite volcanos will erupt violently and primarily out of that one main event. and the lava causing all the damage is maybe 250 feet in the air. that's because all of that pressure is spread out through a number of different openings. it's got a consistency of like thick maple syrup. it only moves half a mile per hour. the eruption in volcan de fuego entirely different, it reached 47,000 feet in the air.
7:19 am
you got to think of this as a flash flood filled with rocks and ash and just speeds down the mountain at 50 miles an hour. outrunning something like this is an impossibility. people die when they escape it at 1,000 degrees. it's going to burn or destroy everything in its path. eventually this turns into dense mud. one thing that they both have in common, the danger is not done yet. in volcan de fuego if it rains it going to cause landslides. scientists think they could continue for another month if not two months more. john? >> i feel like i went to my favorite science class. >> great explanation. former president clinton is mad at himself for the way he answered questions about monica lewinsky. ahead, how he tried to clear up

8:09 am
app. the headspace co-founder andy puddicombe and megan jones join us at the table. you started this in 2012, andy. why now does there need to be a prescription for this? >> so, i think on the science part, megan can talk best to it, but i think it's reflective of how we think about mental health. it's changed enormously over the past decade. in the past meditation was seen as a lifestyle choice. now we're starting to see a shift towards this more clinical lens. >> yeah, one of the things we found in our research is that meditation can impact mental and physical health in a profound way. the american heart association recommends meditation for heart disease. and so what we've shown -- what we've found in our research has led us to the formation of headspace health because we know there can be both a mentalnd physical health benefit.
8:10 am
>> this is not anecdotal. this is scientific evidencef this, right? >> exactly. >> and results showed that it worked. lately i've noticed doctors are saying, do you meditate. that to only recently i think they're bringing the question up. there are a lot of people that i think you'd be surprised at the number of people who meditate but yet still a lot of closet meditators. why? why do you think that is? >> i think it -- to say that we meditate normally implies that sometimes we struggle with our mind. and the truth is, it's part of the human condition. sometimes life is difficult and we all need a way to cope with it. the exciting thing for me and we talked right off camera about just kind of how headspace is about 50/50 in terms of men and women who use it. and i think that's a real shift in the past. it was maybe seen as something women would do. and with it being on the phone, men i think often feel there's something private they can do. they don't need to necessarily discuss with anybody or tell anyone. they can still be vulnerable but
8:11 am
maybe not tell people about it. >> and the fact it's on the phone. break it down. the graphics are so welcoming and friendly. you have it divided in categories. different meditations for different things going on. for instance -- >> the most popular since we began, sleep, stress, anxiety. i think more recently grief has been kind of a really popular one on the app. productivity and as we've started to partner with the mba and nike and doing more sports stuff as well, we started to see a lot more popularity in those plans. >> connect what's the app with the science. the amount of time you have to spend, the number of days, so people know the relationship between the two. >> it does seem daunting, too. it seems daunting. oh, gosh, how do i find the time? >> that's unique about the research we're doing. it's it our actual product. what we show is that using our product which is typically in
8:12 am
studies about ten minutes a day, we see an effect after ten days. we see an effect after 30 days. >> how do you measure the effect? >> using typical psychological measures of perceived stress, of sleep. all of our current studies include much more robust measures where we're actually measuring blood samples of cortisol or using connected devices. so we've moved into much more rigorous, multisite high caliber research so that we can advance our understanding but advance the science around meditation. >> as a clinical psychologist, explain what this fda approval, why you want that sort of appro? >> it's imptant because what we're going to be developing with headspace health is clinically validated content. it's going to be a separate product that's developed in collaboration with patients, physicians, patient advocacy groups. and it will be designed as a prevention and treatment intervention which means that it
8:13 am
really should be done under the doctor's supervision. and that's why fda clearance is necessary. >> and that's so interesting that you could actually have -- we get prescriptions for pills. prescriptions for lots of things. we don't get prescriptions for mindfulness or to go to an app for something. that can transform technology. >> to be clear, like i think it's amazing but we shouldn't wait to get to a point where the doctor needs to prescribe it. i'm a big fan of preventative. so if we have the opportunity and the inclination, i'd strongly advise people, whatever they use to learn meditation and use it as a preventative. >> we don't want to say whatever they use. we want them to use headspace. >> ideally it would be nice. >> i think of you as the oprah winfrey of meditation. oprah is the only cover girl that we've had at "oprah" magazine. you are the voice of headspace. do you see that changing? are you -- do you have the
