anti-immigrant ideology. >> 49 people died in the attack. new zealand's deadliest shooting since 1990. dozens more victims are hospitalized. the patients are as young as 2 years old, the oldest in their 60. ben is near one of the mosques. he said the community is busy mourning the tragic losses at two mosques in the city. ben, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. you know, since we arrived here, we have already had so many people tell us they are honestly in shock that something this horrific could happen in what is generally a small and peaceful place. now, as for the suspected shooter in his lengthy manifesto, he says he plans to plead not guilty, even though he acknowledges what he has done is a terrorist attack. the suspected gunman, brenton tarrant, made his first appearance in a new zealand courtroom saturday. >> mr. tarrant, you are remanded without plea. >> with his hands in cuffs, he flashed what's believed to be a
4:05 am
white nationalist hand gesture as the judge charged him with murder. two other suspects are also in custody. >> my father was -- he looked for somebody to save their life. >> outside the court, omar nabi mourned the loss of his dad, daoud. >> entering a place of prayer to shoot someone is a coward act. >> farid ahmed made it out alive and described the piles of body. >> so many people, you know. some of them were screaming. >> abdul aziz survived the shooting at linwood mosque. he said he chased the gunman down with a weapon that was left behind. >> i'm choiasing with a gun, ani just got the gun and throw it at his window. >> more than 200iles south of

4:07 am
>> we were standing on a sidewalk not far from here earlier and saw a local man reach out to every muslim who walked by and looked at them and said stay strong. this is clearly a community that is planning to support each other. michelle. >> stay strong, indeed. ben tracy in christchurch, new zealand. thank you so much. around the world, there were tributes for the victims of the new zealand shooting massacre. in paris, the lights of the eiffel tower went dark saturday in memory of those who were killed. here in new york, this spire across one world trade center was lit and blue in red in solidarity with the victims. blue and red, of course, are the colors of the new zealand flag. >> in the wake of the attacks, security was stepped up friday at mosques and other houses of worship across the u.s. and around the world. coming up in our next half hour, we'll take a look at the rising threat of right-wing extremism. with the stroke of a pen, president trump vetoed the
4:08 am
bipartisan legislation that rejected his declaration to get funding for a border wall. but the unpopular measure is still facing resistance from lawmakers who sigh they will fight it. nikole killion has more from the white house. good morning. >> good morning to you, dana. for the first time in his presidency, president trump used his veto power to reject what he called a reckless resolution. >> congress has the freedom to pass this resolution. and i have the duty of veto it. >> surrounded by cabinet members, sheriffs, and relatives of those killed by undocumented immigrants, president trump rebuked lawmakers who overrode his emergency declaration. >> congress' vote to deny the crisis on the southern border is a vote against reality. it's against reality. it is a tremendous national emergency. it is a tremendous crisis. >> the ayes are 59, the nays are 41. >> a dozen republican senators
4:09 am
joined their democratic colleagues to reverse the president's declaration out of concern that he was exceeding his authority. >> the president can't overrule the decision of congress without becoming the ultimate power as opposed to balancing power. >> this check on the executive is a source of our freedom. in addition, this president or this declaration is a dangerous precedent. >> who is going to pay for the wall? 100%. >> it was an embarrassing blow to the president from his own party on an issue that was a key promise of his presidential campaign. yesterday, he minimized their actions. >> i could have gotten some of them to come along. i said i want you to vote your heart. do what you want to do. i'm not putting any pressure. >> mr. trump declared the emergency last month after congress authorized less than a quarter of the $5.7 billion he was seeking to build a wall
4:10 am
along the southern border. the move would allow the president to divert funds from the military to make up the difference. house speaker nancy pelosi says her chamber will volt to overreid the president's veto later this month. that would require a two thirds majority in the house and senate, which for now seems unlikely. >> thank you very much. philip bump joins us, a national correspondent for "the washington post." good morning. as nikole said there, it looks unlikely that an override will occur, right? >> yeah, two thirds majority in the house requires something like 100 republicans to come onboard, not quite that many, but it's unlikely to happen, another eight in the senate. it's an uphill climb. >> where does it go from here? >> to the courts. it's very likely it will face legal challenges potentially from congress, this idea of using the emergency declaration this way, it will face a challenge from people whose land will need to be seized in order
4:11 am
to build the wall. tons of eminent domain fights. in 2006, they passed a bill to expand the wall. there's still eminent domain fights going on from that. >> one of the things we have seen this week, beto o'rourke got in the race, as far as the presidential race, on the democratic side. before we talk about beto, why are we seeing so many in the race so early? >> if you look at four years ago, there were literally no major party candidates in the race at this point four years ago. part is simply because everyone else is jumping in. people want to get in the conversation. sort of a herd mentality. part of it too is the democrats set the standard. if you can get 65,000 contributions before the debate, you can get in the debate. for some candidates, that's going to take some work and time. >> we have to add, though, what's taking joe biden so long? >> that's a fair question. i think one of the things biden has is the advantage of being a front-runner coming out of the gate. he doesn't need to build that same sort of name identity, the same sort of base supporting him. he has that advantage, and i
4:12 am
think he also likes the fact we're sitting here talking about him because he's not in the race. >> is there a deadline for him in which he doesn't want to go past in terms of making the decision? >> i don't really think so. i think the first debate is in june. he wants to be on the debate stage, but donald trump didn't enter the race until mid-june either. >> beto o'rourke comes with a more centrist message, but there are also questions about his experience right now. >> yeah, yeah, exactly right. i think that the message he's sort of leading with is the message of am i a fresh face in this field. that's something we have seen be advantageous in the past. in the past, he's had a centrist record. he's also offering a lot of progressive messages you're hearing from other candidates. people say i like him because x, even if x isn't really describing him that way. >> let's turn to the mueller investigation. the justin department has said they're ready or signaled
4:13 am
they're ready to release what they know on this deadline. what are we seeing here? what do you think is going to come out? >> well, we're not clear on when it's actually going to happen. i heard rumors for a while. technically, robert mueller when he's done with his work, he has to turn it over to the justice department, the findings, the rationale behind the actions he took and didn't. then all the justice department has to do is tell congress here's the things we kept him from investigating. that's the bare minimum of what they have to report politically. there's a lot more pressure to release more than that. >> the house voted 420-0 this week, not binding, we should say, to release this report. lindsey graham blocked this in the senate, but i mean, as you say, there's political pressure. what do you think we will see? >> i think it depends on what's in the report. if, for example, there are indications in the report that donald trump is more culpable in some way than he would like to admit, he's going to put a lot of pressure on attorney general
4:14 am
barr and the department of justice to keep it close to the chest. the more he withholds the more it's going to look like they're hiding something. it also is politically beneficial to the president to put out there everything he can to say look, i'm not hiding anything. there's nothing to suspect here. >> we heard from mike pompeo with news kim jong-un is looking to start again nuclear and missile testing. what do we know. >> it's tricky. the north koreans are in advantageous position here, which is they had worked to build an intercontinental ballistic missile and a miniature weapon that can fit on the missile. it seems as if they have done that and now they hold that card. the united states wants them to give up the weapons, but north korea realizes this is their bargaining chip. they're not going to do that in the short term. secretary of state pompeo knows more about this than i do, but that said, it's hard to see how north korea is going to give up their only playing card in this game. >> thank you very much.
4:15 am
tomorrow morning on face the nation here, margaret brennan's guest will include acting white house chief of staff mick mulvaney and senator tim kaine, democrat of virginia. >> in boston, fire crews are still checking for hot spots after a massive nine-alarm fire destrowed a casket company and forced hundreds of evacuations from nearby homes on friday. more than 100 firefighters battled the thick smoke in the two-story building for nearly eight hours. the city's fire commissioner says the fire started above the building's sprinkler system but there were challenges trying to get water. >> it's an awfully big fire, for sure. our issue is water. we need pumps. we had us going to a relay operation to get water to the building. it takes a number of pumps along the circuit to get water moving. that's part of it, but it's a large fire, without a doubt. >> two firefighters and two police officers suffered minor injuries. the cause of the fire is under investigation. residents in at least five
4:16 am
midwestern states are trying to dry out from what's being described as an historic flooding episode. high water in nebraska forced the national guard to rescue people by helicopter friday. heavy rain and melting snow pushed streams and rivers over their banks. homes and highways were flooded in parts of missouri and south dakota. a state of emergency was declared in wisconsin. temperatures are expected to drop into the 20s this weekend, setting the stage for the floodwaters to freeze and for the cycle to repeat itself. >> thousands of students in more than 100 countries walked out of their classes friday. demanding action on climate change. word of the so-called school strikes spread on social media and in city after city from here in new york to hong kong, demonstrators called on lawmakers to make an effort to lower the planet's temperature. scientists have warned the levels of heat trapping gases need to drop sharply to prevent what they say are dangerous
4:17 am
levels of warming within the next 20 years. we'll have more on the protests in our 8:00 hour. >> boeing says it plans to release upgraded software for its 737 max fleet in the next ten days. the company says the change is needed for what it calls an anti-stall system and pilot displays which may have been contributing factors in the recent deadly and disasters in ethiopia and indonesia. chris van cleef says the decision emerged in the what caused the plane crash. >> they recovered the boeing 737 max's jackscrew, which helps raise or lower the nose. it was set to dive. investigators are getting a clearer picture that ethiopian airlines flight 302 was in trouble almost from the beginning of its brief final flight with the pilots locked in a battle for control of the aircraft as it climbed and dropped by hundreds of feet. this oscillating flight track is similar to the lion air crash in
4:18 am
october. >> the similarity is in both accidents you do have this pitching up and down of the nose. it's just in the ethiopian case, it occurred right after takeoff and continued. >> air traffic controllers were aware of the plane's flight path, and three minutes after takeoff, the pilot made his distress call, according to the airline's ceo. >> pilot reported flight control problems. >> investigators hope the blax boxes tell them whether the plane's sensors malfunctioned similar to lion air. that could explain data showing the plane was flying unusually fast after taking off. in washington, lawmakers are calling for a investigation into the faa's approval process of the 737 max and its relationship with boeing. >> they're there to protect the flying public and the people on the ground. they're not there to protect any company or any airline or anybody else. and i'm going to be scrutinizing to make sure that there wasn't any undo influence. >> the faa stands behind the process, which relies heavily on
4:19 am
boeing. for cbs this morning saturday, kris van cleave, washington. >> time to show you some of the other stories making news this morning. plit co reports the staff of bernie sanders' push for 2020 is about to become the first presidential campaign staff to join a junior. democratic party activists support the move which they say matches sanders' progressive platform. the staff designated the united food and commercial workers to represent them. a union official says the decision will allow for equal treatment of every worker as well as play parity, no gender bias or harassment. >> "the new york times" reports astrophysicist neal degrass tyson will be back on television after being off the air for sexual misconduct allegations. box broadcasting and national geographic offered no specifics about their investigations other than saying it was complete. star talk will return to the air next month. both companies say they are
4:20 am
committed to finding an air date for cosmos. two women accuse him of acting inappropriately in december. tyson denied the accusations. >> the hollywood reporter says disney is back tracking and rehiring james gunn to direct the next guardians of the galaxy movie. he was fired in july, but stars of guardians of the galaxy signed an open letter asking for gunn to be reinstated. in response to the news he tweeted for the first time since being fired, thanking disney for the second chance. with gunn at the helm, the first two guardians of the galaxy movies have grossed more than $1.6 billion worldwide. >> usa today reports a new study reveals eggs are not so heart healthy. the journal of the american medical association says eggs are a major source of cholesterol. i thought we knew that. and warn frequent consumption can learn to cardiovascular disease and early death. the study finds most americans
4:21 am
eat half an egg per day. they say risk factors go up with the number rises to three to four eggs per week. >> uh-oh. >> guilty as charged. >> me too. >> reuters reveals a secret recipe to giving cheese more flavor. expose it to music. a swiss study matched wheels of cheese to different kinds of music 24 hours a day. researchers found hip-hop had the biggest effect on cheese, enhancing its texture, taste, and appearance. the test was repeated a second time, and the results were more or less the same. i know what's on my playlist this weekend. >> they say it irks on babies. why not on cheese? >> the new orleans times-picayune reports a movie with a controversial ending to the saints playoff game. now an independent film company
4:22 am
is planning a comedy called "get the ref." it would star the hangover's ed helms and feature danny devito as a cajun sheriff. they're also trying to get roger goodell to make a cameo. >> i'll go on record to say that will not happen. >> word on the street is that script is hilarious. >> it's about 22 after the hour. here's a look at the weather for your weekend. as we have reported, extreme violence has taken a heavy toll on the other side of the world. up next, more on the new zealand mosque shootings and a look at the rising tide of white
4:23 am
supremacist violence in this country. >> plus, troubling admission. this week pchs college admission scandal showed how wealthy parents resorted to cheating to get their kids into elite cleeblgs, but one author said the rich have long been gaming the system to buy their way in to top tier schools. >> a whole new rocky mountain high. colorado is a state where cannabis-infused beer is for sale. we'll see the impact on markets and the drinker. you're watching cbs this morning saturday. when you're inspired
4:24 am
to make your house look good, you make the neighborhood look good. with the home depot, everyone looks great. today is the day for doing. right now, get vigoro mulch, 4 bags for $10. the home depot. more saving. more doing.
4:25 am
it's been compared to the emerald city and to live and shop there takes plenty of green. hear why some are calling this a thrilling addition to new york while others are calling it a corporate refuge for the rich. >> also, from sacred space to marketplace. we'll see how some financially troubled churches are bringing in much needed revenue in otherwise empty hours. you're watching "cbs this
4:26 am
morning: saturday."
4:27 am
in the lawsuit, attorneys for the women point out if both the men's and women's teams were to win 20 non-tournament matches, the men would win a little more than $13,000 per game. while the average women's team player would earn a maximum of $99,000, which equals a little less than $5,000 per game. the u.s. soccer federation said in the past that part of the reason for the pay discrepancies is that the men bring in more revenue and tv ratings. do you believe, alex, that the women's team has been undermarketed and that has had a huge effect? >> yes, i think there's no
4:28 am
question. that's one of our -- that's one of the cases that we have in our fight. and that's a very important thing moving forward. i don't think that's only us. i think that's women's sports all around. >> frustration on the u.s. women's team has been building for years. five players filed a complaint in 2016 with the equal employment opportunity commission, alleging wage discrimination. last month, the women received permission from the eeoc to sue. in 2016, i spoke to members of the women's team on "60 minutes." >> this is a social movement, i think. this is about gender discrimination. and i don't think that positive change occurs in the world unless it has to. >> do you think you should be paid more than the men's team? >> yeah, absolutely. >> why? >> we win. we're successful. should get what we deserve. >> the women's team has held number one world ranking for 10 of the last 11 years.
4:29 am
the men's team is currently ranked 25th.
4:30 am
that's an australian senator taking issue with a teenager's form of protest yesterday. frazeranning took a swing at the 17-year-old boy saturday as he was offering comments about the new zealand mosque shootings. the boy was arrested but was then released without charge pending further investigation. >> hours after the shootings, he said the real cause of the bloodshed was the immigration program, which allowed muslim fanatics to migrate to new zealand. those heated remarks led to an online petition demanding his
4:31 am
ouster. it already has a quarter of a million signatures. >> the attack at the two mosques in new zealand was deeply shocking to residents of that country, but in some ways, such violence is all too familiar to americans. in recent years, we have seen a killing at a white nationalist rally in virginia, murders of congregants in a church in charleston, south carolina, and in a synagogue in pittsburgh. they are among many recent incidents blamed on a rising tide of right-wing and white supremacist violence. here's jeff pegues. >> in new york, heavily armed police officers stood watch outside a mosque, even though u.s. law enforcement officials are not aware of any imminent threat. what investigators have seen is a steady rise in right-wing extremism. john miller is deputy police commissioner at the new york police department. >> we're seeing an increase in the propaganda, again, when we look at their propaganda, they
4:32 am
are borrowing propaganda techniques from other terrorist groups. >> isis-inspired followers online and now white supremacists are doing the same. far right attacks in europe jumped 43% between 2016 and 2017. in the u.s., right-wing extremists were linked to at least 50 murders last year. that's a 35% increase over 2017. >> i would say the majority of it is propagated online. in fact, this morning, after the attacks, i was seeing celebrations of the attacks online. on the anti-muslim hate sites. it's really disgusting. >> just last month, coast guard lieutenant christopher hassan was arrested after prosecutors say he was stockpiling weapons for an attack to fuel a race war. in october, robert bowers killed 11 in a pittsburgh synagogue. he had posted anti-semitic messages online leading up to the attack. the alleged shooter in new zealand mentioned him in his
4:33 am
74-page manifesto, as well as charleston church killer dylann roof. he livestreamed his attack in an effort to keep the cycle of violence going. >> all of these guys watch the reaction, they watch the tactics of those who went before them. and we ought to acknowledge that there is a rise in sort of nationalism around the world. >> at the white house, president trump disagreed. >> i think it's a small group of people that have very, very serious problems. >> currently, the fbi has about 900 active domestic terrorism cases, and that includes cases involving white supremacists. for "cbs this morning: saturday," jeff pegues, washington. >> yeah, it may be a small group of people, but they're doing a lot of harm. >> and with the way we can communicate now, that small group of people can reach so many. and that harm -- >> they can all talk to each other. >> there is a rise. there is a rise. does that mean more people are just people moving forward with violent acts?
4:34 am
>> it's certainly a loud message from them right now. many were shocked by the length wealthy parents went to get their kids into elite colleges, but not pulitzer prize winning author daniel golden. he's written a book on how the college admissions process is anything but a level playing field. but first, here's a look at your weather for the weekend. brian wilson and ringo starr are just some of the music legends remembering a fellow performer who had a far lower profile but was a key to their success. that's still to come. you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday."

bribery, cheating on entrance exams, and faking athletic achievements. those are some of the methods wealthy parents use to try to get their children into some of the nation's top colleges. detailed in the scandal that came to light this week. >> but our next guest says there's an ongoing scandal as the rich use a variety of other tools to gain admissions advantage for their children. daniel golden is the author of "the price of admission, how
4:39 am
america's ruling class buys its way into elite colleges, and who gets left outside the gates." daniel, welcome. >> thank you. >> this has really struck a nerve. parents are simply insensed. i think there is this notion, people knew that wealth could buy influence. you certainly pointed it out back in 2006. so why does this come as such a shock? >> well, i think since i wrote my book, colleges have become even harder to get into it, even more selective. so what this suggests that maybe the wealthy are worried that even with a big donation, their kids may not get into college. what the independent counsel who masterminded this scheme, this fellow singer, what he seems to be selling with certainty, his message was if i get your kid an inflated fake test score and bogus status as a recruited athlete, your admission -- the admission will be guaranteed.
4:40 am
it's even better than a donation. so they ratchet it up to another level. here's what you need now. >> when you published your book in 2006, it was interesting the reaction you got wasn't so much that people were appalled. it's people contacted you to try to figure out how to get their kid into college through this system, right? >> that's right. every month or two, somebody would call me and said i read your book. my son or daughter would like to go to harvard or yale or princeton r i would like to hire you as an admissions consultant. i said i don't think you got my point. >> parents want to help their kids get ahead. there are ways you do help them with test prep courses and things along the legal lines, but giving them an advantage over others. in this case, there were ethical lines that were crossed, legal lines that were crossed. which are more concerning, i guess? >> well, this went a lot farther. i think maybe the biggest concern to me is the rise of these independent counselors like singer who are paid immense
4:41 am
sums to get their kids into college. when i wreet my book, it was just starting, but now it's a completely unregulated industry. they get around the traditional guidance counselor at the high school whose job is to find the best fit for each student and instead they're only beholden to the wealthy parents. some are very nice and responsible people, but the incentives are wrongly arranged and that's ripe for abuse as in this case. >> what does it means for kids who don't have a parent who can help them with resources, with money like that? >> it's kind of a slap in the face to these kids who are trying to get in on their own, legitimately, on hard work and achievement. and it's also a reminder of the point in my book that so many students benefit from preferences for the wealthy. what i call the preferences of privilege. like legacy preference for children of alumni. development preference for candidates recommended by the fund-raising office and so on. >> yufrtss have been saying they're victims too. are they, or are they part of a
4:42 am
system that's got a real problem? >> i don't see them as victims. i mean, they may have been deceived in this case. but overall, they developed and they perpetuate a system that's tilted toward the wealthy and made this kind of corruption possible. >> you mentioned evening the playing fields and for a long time, what is taking place is actually what affirmative action programs have been charged as doing. how does that play out with what the critics have said in the past about those? >> people have criticized affirmative action as if it was the only exception to a merit-based system. in reality, it's far outweighed by the cumulative preferences for the rich and the famous and the powerful. so you know, what people often call white affirm tsk action. this puts it in perspective. >> you think this is going to change anything alt all? >> not fundamentally.
4:43 am
colleges are too scared to offend people with big money. i do anticipate tweaks to the system. for example, one thing this case exposed is when a college coach goes to the admissions committee and says i want you to admit this recruited athlete, the committee rubber stamps it. they don't look at all. now i think, because in this case, the coaches were bribed so the people they were touting weren't actually athletes. i think that will change and admissions committees will take a closer look, and maybe these independent counselors, the kids they recommend will come under more scrutiny, but those kinds of minor changes i would anticipate. >> more transparency possibly. >> dan golden, thank you very much. we appreciate it. some financials troubled churches are looking far beyond the collection plate to a whole new source of revenue. just ahead, we'll see the mid-weak solution they have found so they can keep their doors wide open on sunday. you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday." hey maya. hey! you still thinking about opening your own shop?

4:45 am
well, i'm managing my a1c, so i should be all set. right. actually, you're still at risk for a fatal heart attack or stroke. even if i'm taking heart medicine, like statins or blood thinners? yep! that's why i asked my doctor what else i could do... she told me about jardiance. that's right. jardiance significantly reduces the risk of dying from a cardiovascular event for adults who have type 2 diabetes and heart disease. that's why the american diabetes association recommends the active ingredient in jardiance. and it lowers a1c? yeah- with diet and exercise. jardiance can cause serious side effects including dehydration. this may cause you to feel dizzy, faint, or lightheaded, or weak upon standing. ketoacidosis is a serious side effect that may be fatal. symptoms include nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, tiredness, and trouble breathing. a rare, but life-threatening, bacterial infection in the skin of the genital area could also occur. stop taking jardiance and call your doctor right away if you have symptoms of this bacterial infection, ketoacidosis, or an allergic reaction. symptoms of an allergic reaction include rash, swelling, and difficulty breathing or swallowing.
4:46 am
do not take jardiance if you are on dialysis or have severe kidney problems. other side effects are sudden kidney problems, genital yeast infections, increased bad cholesterol, and urinary tract infections, which may be serious. taking jardiance with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. tell your doctor about all the medicines you take and if you have any medical conditions. so, what do you think? now i feel i can do more to go beyond lowering a1c. ask your doctor about jardiance today. declining attendance as america's churches has been a

tarrant, he appeared in court yesterday afternoon in handcuffs. he was charged with one count of murder, though the judge said more charges may be on the way. his face is blurred in compliance with new zealand law. tarrant was silent during the hearing, but at one point, he appeared to use his hands to make what is believed to be a white nationalist symbol. the shootings have shaken a small nation of 5 million people which prides itself on being a peaceful and inclusive place. the prime minister visited leaders in christchurch. she promised to insure their safety. she said the shooter is licensed gun owner and bought the five guns he used in the shooting legally. she added new zealand's gun laws would change as a result of this. in addition to the shooter, there are two other people in custody. and police plan to say today what if anything those people had to do with this horrific event. anthony. >> ben tracy in christchurch, thanks. president trump used his first veto in office, overruling congress to protect his

the largest private real estate development in u.s. history opened its doors on friday. hudson yards on manhattan's far west side is a commercial and residential wonderland featuring some of the city's tallest buildings and most expensive restaurants and condos. some see the project as a welcome addition to the nation's largest city. but others think it's exclusive offerings mean exclusion for too many. tony dokoupil is at the hudson yards. what can you tell us? >> good morning. i can tell you that we're a long way from the new york of subway rats and hotdog vendors, but let me give you a tour around. that thing behind me is called the vessel. it's basically a $150 million skruptture. below me, there's a mall where there are about five places where you can buy a $1,000 watch, and if you actually want
5:13 am
to live here, well, a penthouse will run you about $30 million. but here's the thing. before you dismiss hudson yards as just a billionaire's playground, consider for the east coast and definitely for new york, it's also kind of a final frontier. ambition is always limitless, but land like this is not. you're looking at the largest private development project in american history. built on one of the rarest things in midtown manhattan, underdeveloped land. >> we're looking at 28 acres overall. >> 28 acres. >> bruce beal is the president of related companies, a partner in the project known as hudson yards because of the vast rail yards still rumbling beneath us. >> how do you build huge buildings on top of hollow tubes that trains go through? >> carefully. a lot of planning. great engineering. we had to put columns down and bring in steel and actually create the platform.
5:14 am
>> that platform spans four city blocks above an active train operation that never shut down. >> when we started this process, every was like, are you crazy? you're going to build over active trains. the answer was, we're never going to stop the trains. >> the site includes office, residential, and retail space. along with a public park. >> welcome to the neighborhood. >> and it officially opened friday. ♪ i'll rise up >> after six years of development and more than a decade of dreaming by this man. >> it will be a really great urban space. >> stephen ross, billionaire developer, detailed down to the roots. >> thank you. >> i heard you drove around picking trees. >> to me, everybody talks about ideas. to be successful, you really have to be involved in the execution. it's the details and putting the details together that makes great projects. >> seven months ago, we suited up with safety gear and rode to the top of the project's tallest building. >> nerve-racking. >> with a view of the empire

5:17 am
tax incentives and a new subway. >> amazon was given about $3 billion in subsidies, and the pitch forks came out. what were you thinking watching that saga unfold with amazon? >> they weren't given a subsidy. they were paying for something themselves over a longer period of time. the city was certainly benefitting from the jobs, by the amount of revenue created. >> which is also true here, you think? >> absolutely. nobody wrote us a check, say here's a subsidy, go build it. the reason we got the tax benefit, here you're in the middle of nowhere, in essence, in the city of new york. you had to attract corporations to come here. what we're receiving are incentives to make sure it happened. >> he said the work that happened here could happen in any city. >> i think creating these live, work, play kind of nodes or environments, this is where people want to be. and it can work everywhere. >> and guys, as for whether it can work here, stephen ross, the
5:18 am
developer, estimates that the city will get about $500 million in revenue a year and 50,000 jobs. as we said, this is now open, but open is relative. the vessel behind me, if you want to walk on it, fair warning, you're advised to make your reservation about two weeks in advance. >> let's start. why don't you give us a clue in? write it down for us. >> i will. you're on the list. >> going up that high that tony was way up there, i couldn't do that. that glass floor terrifies me. >> i'll do it for all of us. >> i'll do it with you. >> take a picture. >> you're going to get a very different kind of cheer from this bottle of beer. instead of alcohol, it's infused with cannabis. we'll take a look at the brewing trend next. you're watching cbs this morning saturday. i landed.

i saw my leg did not look right. i was just finishing a ride. i felt this awful pain in my chest. i had a pe blood clot in my lung. i was scared. i had a dvt blood clot. having one really puts you in danger of having another. my doctor and i chose xarelto®. xarelto®. to help keep me protected. xarelto® is a latest-generation blood thinner that's... proven to treat and reduce the risk of dvt or pe blood clots from happening again. in clinical studies, almost 98% of patients on xarelto® did not experience another dvt or pe. xarelto® works differently. warfarin interferes with at least 6 of your body's natural blood-clotting factors. xarelto® is selective, targeting just one critical factor. don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor, as this may increase risk of blood clots. while taking, you may bruise more easily, or take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. it may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. get help right away for unexpected
5:20 am
bleeding or unusual bruising. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. before starting, tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures and any kidney or liver problems. learn all you can... to help protect yourself from another dvt or pe. talk to your doctor about xarelto®. what they eat and drink ise is likely acidic and then what's happening is the weakening of enamel. now is the perfect time for a toothpaste like the new pronamel repair. this toothpaste takes it to the next level. it takes minerals and it drives it deep into the tooth surface so that we can actively help repair weakened enamel. i do think dentists are going to want to recommend the new pronamel repair toothpaste. it's such an easy answer and it will do exactly what their patients need.

seven years ago, washington and colorado became the first states to legalize recreational marijuana. since then, that list of states and the size of the market has only grown. estimates say the legal marijuana industry in the u.s. will hit $13.1 billion in total value this year. in three years, that number is projected to climb to $22.2 billion. >> the growing market includes product options such as cannabis candy, but now there's brewing interest in something new. cannabis-infused beer. cbs news correspondent barry petersen took a closer look. inate the answer my friend is blowing in the wind ♪ >> when it's the clydesdales, it's about budweiser. >> whatever your mountain, climb on. >> when it's the rockies, it's about coors. famous beers available in a grocery store, mini mart, or nearby bar.

turn it into a legitimate industry that no longer has that stigma associated with it. >> it starts at this denver facility with bags of marijuana. if i walked into a pot shop, i would probably buy something that looks a lot like this. >> very similar. >> the pot is crushed to dust, then liquefied under the watchful eye of eric, ceo of the production company can corps. from the liquid, they extract the thc, that's what creates a high. finally, in the vats, the thc is infused into the non-alcohol beer. when you close your eyes and imagine, who's buying that? who is your audience? >> the first place i look is right here. it's a perfect product for myself. this gives you an alternative to drinking alcohol. >> but the complicated chemistry may be the easiest part. much harder is marketing it. under colorado law, they can only be sold at a pot shop. and only consumed in private, like inside a home. but even so, says stephanie
5:25 am
wilson, editor in chief of sensi magazine, it's a product colorado may like a lot. are people going to really buy it? >> oh, god, i see it working like gangbusters in colorado, a, because we have such a strong craft beer market. a lot of people who are connoisseurs of beer. i believe there is definitely a market for it, and it's new and it's novel. >> ten states and the district of columbia have legalized recreational marijuana with varying restrictions, and that has encouraged other companies to get in to the cannabis beer market. the first was two roots in california. but since pot is still illegal under federal law, the products cannot be shipped across state lines. not so in canada, where pot is now legal across the nation. brewers like mollson cures are investing big time to make pot beer there and expecting sales in the billions of dollars. >> what we want is the effect of

the cannabis. >> keith via sees a day when cannabis beer will be the best way to get high. >> it's different to say i'm having a marijuana cigarette as opposed to having a beer with the guys. >> yeah. any more, any kind of smoking is really not socially acceptable, and having a beer with cannabis is socially acceptable. you can even toast people with our beers because in the cannabis world, there are gummies and chocolates, but let's face it. when people are getting married, you can't toast the bride and groom with a gummy bear. >> there may even be wine and whiskey with marijuana instead of alcohol, which could make cannabis the new way to say cheers. for "cbs this morning: saturday," barry petersen, denver. >> all right, i'm really curious to taste this stuff. >> what does it taste like? >> plus no scent, which is a big plus for a lot of people. she earned top honors at dance competitions before a rare infection struck. now a young girl is back to her

5:28 am
people recognize all of that genius that you just described or you don't have to push as hard as you would have 20 years ago? what do you think the difference is now? >> good question. >> the great thing is i never, maybe because i didn't consider my beauty or my prettiness, i never was the pretty leading lady. i never defined my life by my beauty or my youth. that wasn't my commodity. what i had was, you know, a level of talent and ambition and ability to work very hard. i just kept doing it. so i would say to young women, don't think of, you know, don't think of your life in terms of your youth or how am i going to hold on to it for dear life? don't think of that as your commodity. what is most valuable is the cultivation of good work. your character, your life experience, the people whose relationships you are comfortable with, who are worth knowing. and i have all that in my life. >> well said. >> so i have --

5:32 am
>> no. >> never? >> no. >> you just do what you have to do. >> yeah. >> she already knows what she wants to do when she grows up. >> be a dance teacher. >> a dance teacher. >> yeah. >> on the dance floor in her living room where she practices every day, even she struggled to teach someone with two left feet. >> pull back that way. like this? >> mm-hmm. >> pretty bad, aren't i? >> tessa is competing again. recently, she did her first solo performance since her illness. what do you say to young people who are going through difficult times? >> never give up. >> words to live by from an 8-year-old who is living her dream. for "cbs this morning: saturday," chip reid, northfield, ohio. >> that's a formidable kid. >> lesson for all of us. >> 8 years old. amazing. >> lesson to chip reid. >> yes. >> no flossing. no flossing.

5:38 am
pot pie, which is amazing, totally vegetarian. smoke the mushrooms and people think sometimes we snuck bacon in, but it's entirely vegetarian. finishing with a little strawberry and rhubarb crisp, crossing our fingers and hoping summer comes sooner. >> you say you went from tuba to tenderloin. you had this idea you were going to have music as a career. why did that not happen for you? >> i think i just got to a point where i really enjoyed the work of it, i enjoyed going in and achieving something. but i'm not sure that i really enjoyed the music part of it. and there were people who just loved going in, sitting in the music library, and listening to classical music. that wasn't me. >> you almost got a job in a symphony, then changing gears, you faced your real adult decision. >> first real adult decision for sure. i knew i didn't love it. i knew i had to do something else. and being in my 20s, something else was i'm not sure what
5:39 am
that's going to be. >> i remember that. >> scary. that had to be terrifying for you. >> both of my parents are teachers. and so i went back to school and thought i'm just going to be a teacher too, do the family business. in order to pay for that, i started to work in restaurants. there's this great sense of community and teamwork in restaurants. and being a musician, i was already working nights. i was working weekends and holidays, so the pace and the timing of it all worked out well for me. >> that led you to the c.i.a. >> it did, and that's where i knew that it was something where not only did i enjoy the work, but i had a passion for it. in music school, when people were listening to all the classical music, i was watching videos of the chefs coming to c.i.a., to the point of i even took some of the videos and put them in my backpack and thought i really want to take these to my place. >> what brought you to nashville? >> the job. i was looking around. nashville is hot these days. >> it sure is.
