8:15 am
technology, ground penetrating radar that can see beneath the surface. the scientists call it hidden landscapes project and has revealed hidden landscapes. a perimeter of standing stones re-created here with computer imagery and many times the size of neighboring stonehenge. the stones it seems were erected of special significance, some sort of temple or public forum or both. the radar also reveals that the stones were knocked down and covered with an earthen mound. there is plenty here to occupy archeologists for the next several centuries and they want more. we met henry chapman, an ar on e last year. >> more information i want more. >> it's the more. >> reporter: scientists are
8:16 am
pretty sure they know what stonehenge was for. it is especially a large clock that tracks the seasons through the movement of the sun, a useful tool for a stone age agricultural society, but the point of the new discovery, they know it is probably important but haven't a clue really. archeologists -- >> it's one of the most important things discovered in the last 20 or 30 years anywhere. it was completely unsuspected. >> reporter: stonehenge has been drawing visitors since the dawn of time. the combination of scale and mystery has been irresistible even to some of the most powerful people in the world. president obama passed this way on a recent visit. science has provided more to ponder. other modern techniques, laser scanning can reveal more about a fascinating place we may never

car companies hoping this summer's strong auto sales will roll into the fall. august saw best numbers for a single month in a decade. seasonally adjusted annual rates. the new issue of the magazine hits the stands with the look at the future of car technology. joins us at the table to discuss. let's unpack this.
8:22 am
you talk about supercars. what does that mean sp what makes them so special? >> that's a big part of it. super cars are beautiful, fast cars but traditionally they have been hard to drive. they have been kind of perceived as cars that can go into a ditch quickly. we are seeing a new generation of super cars. to make them easier to drive and live with we are looking at the gt. the supercar will be about $400,000. that's not cheap. >> who is buying that? >> people with a lot of money obviously. the car is more efficient than some supercars. relatively small motor, very lightweight because it is made of carbon fiber. >> what about self-driving cars? >> you drive the car and have
8:23 am
fun. >> are they here to stay? >> absolutely. it's not going to be the thing that you wake up and your car is driving itself. we are seeing a gradual transition from traditional to self-driving car. things are moving. cruise control you get on the highway and the car can slow down and see the car ahead of it. if you are wandering -- these are features of cars that are percolating into current cars. >> the more digital we get the more chance someone can hack in and take a wrong turn. >> security is a huge question. the automotive industry has had the benefit of being a closed system for a long time. as we see more advanced technology more systems which makes them vulnerable. car manufacturers are trying to deal with these things.
8:24 am
bring them into the fold so they can be ahead of these things. it will be a continuing problem but something that will get better. >> new ways for parents to track teenagers considering that car accidents are the number one death of teenagers this sounds like a good thing. >> chevy in the new malibu implemented teen driver feature. what it allows you to do is you can program a specific key to your teen. when they get in the car the radio will be disabled until seat belts are on and annoying chime when someone goes too fast. we have seen this in higher end cars. on the malibu, the idea to make it safer and then something called teen report card which mom and dad can punch in the secret pin and see how the teen is driving. a doctor from a top medical

8:26 am
right now, can't finds cloud on this camera shot. that's going to be the trends into the afternoon. that sun really go to work and heat the temperatures up. low mid 70s right now, still few six's left, but that's quickly gone probably in the next half hour or so. lots of sunshine today, hot, humid, 92 degrees for the afternoon temperature, tonight warm, muggy, mostly clear, low of 74, the extended forecast once again 90 tomorrow, and then rain returns for thursday, then we cool down to the lower 80s for the start of the weekends, meisha, a how is the traffic looking? >> still busy, justin, you know, first the day back after the holiday weekend, everyone going back to work, back to school. certainly still busy. lingering on around 8:30, here is a look at the schuylkill near spring garden. looking okay right there. we do have accident pennsylvania turnpike eastbound near valley forge, the left lane blocked, and we are another accident, northeast extension northbound , past lansdale, right lane blocked, there just quick peak, your drive time,
8:27 am
12 on the schuylkill, ten on 95, 13 on the blue route northbound. erika, over to you. >> thank you, next update is at 8:55, ahead on cbs this morning, how farm remembers trapping into the craft beer it's gotten squarer. over the years. brighter. bigger. thinner. even curvier. but what's next? for all binge watchers. movie geeks. sports freaks. x1 from xfinity will change the way you experience tv.

welcome back to "cbs this morning." coming up in this half hour, high tech gear originally developed for computer games could transform football. virtual reality head sets may give college and pro teams the right moves. 60 minutes sports gets the first look and we have a sneak peek. >> beer at the barns. see how hops are helping farmers become successful brewers. time to show you some of this morning's headlines. usa today says yale is ranked best college in the country. that is according to college factual. it's followed by the university of pennsylvania, duke, stanford and harvard. the rankings looked at other
8:31 am
factors. reports on virginia tech's running back. j.c. coleman roar a jinorm s gold watch. apparently the watch was plastic. there is no rule against that. it didn't apparently help them on the field. the buckeyes beat the hokeys. does the giant watch help your game? >> i don't know. >> seems a little extra to me. >> and chicago tribune reports on a serious shortage of psychiatrists. 59% are 55 or older. many could retire. the number of psychiatrists rose only 12% from 1995 to 2013. during that same period the u.s. population increased by 37%. millions more americans are eligible for mental health
8:32 am
coverage under the affordable care act. in the field of medicine there is a shortage of black practitioners making up more than 13% of the u.s. population but only 4% of the nation's doctors. in the new book called "black man in a little coat" now everybody can navigate the health care system regardless of skin color. assistant professor of psychiatry at duke. charlie says hello because he loves all things duke. i read this book and i thought i better get my butt on the treadmill. you said race is a big deal when it comes to health and when it comes to blacks it is worse for minorities. why is that? you said being black is bad for your health. >> there are statistics and study that highlight this. my book takes a personal approach to it. i think the example is early medical school i was out in the
8:33 am
community and rotated to this community about 90 minutes away. the patients were all blacks and it was clear from the beginning that we couldn't provide the adequate care to them. they couldn't afford medications, lab tests and other treatments. i was in an emergency room clinic and saw the same problems. we went out into this community, really isolated horrible housing project and you saw obesity and you saw addiction and violence. >> high blood pressure. >> illustrates in a personal way this problem we have. >> how about your own experience? the title is "black man in a white coat." how have you been treated? >> the first one really stands out.
8:34 am
beginning of medical school a professor mistakes me for the handyman. >> what did you say? >> he asked me are you here to fix the lights. i asked you to do this last week. it was a horrible case of mistaken identity. another example when i was a brand new doctor. a patient came into the ward and he used racial slurs to indicate he did not want a black doctor. i try to highlight how i learn from these experiences and tapped into an inner resilience that i didn't think i had. in the case of the patient i was able to connect with him and his family. >> you had both black and white patients that didn't want a black doctor. >> same year. great point. i had a black patient who was under the mindset.
8:35 am
whatever was black was less than adequate. he came in with that. at first i was taken aback. i was taken aback but i really had to dig deep and show him that i can do this. at the end he gave me the -- he said i'm sorry about this and i would like for you to be my doctor. >> we have a black doctor running for president in ben carson. >> no doubt that ben carson is a role model to a generation of african-american physicians. as far as the political side of things i think it's really important to have positions in the political process. health care is important to all of us. the idea we are in a place where we are front and center. we see people in the real world. it is a valuable perspective to add to the political dialogue. >> you have gone from insecure
8:36 am
medical student to faculty at duke. >> and author. >> and the changes you have seen do you feel better about when you started? >> i think there has been a lot of progress but there is still a lot to do. the book talks about how all of us have a role to play. health care system. doctors have to work hard to connect with patients. all those things have to happen. >> we need more good mental health professionals like you. thank you so much. football season did you notice is here and virtual reality is coming off the bench. v.r. is quickly changing the way the game is played. take a look at college quarterback kevin hogan. an inside look at the technology at work for tonight's edition of "60 minutes sports." >> virtual reality has been tried before in football and never worked until now. it was developed in the heart of
8:37 am
silicon valley where it began as a teaching tool in a mind altering testing lab. >> reporter: most nubenewbies l me are first exposed. >> you see video of the room except you are not seeing the room because here i am. you are seeing most people believe they are seeing video is a 3-d model of the room. you see that piece of wood? look down more? >> there is the woe. you had a great response. feeling all right? >> yeah. >> one in three adults will be asked to be taken out because it is hard to see it on camera but it feels really intense. what i'm going to ask you to do is walk across the plank.
8:38 am
very good. so what you just did a lot of adults won't do that. in this case fear of heights by having them approach and then the next time get over the plank. >> i want you to rotate this way. i want you to stop when you are half way across. >> come on. >> you don't have to do it if you don't want to. you know there is not a physical hole in the floor. >> i do know, but you know it but you don't know it. >> i want you to go half way across and stop when you are half way across. >> stop. rotate 90 degrees to your left. those are great reactions. >> i can feel my legs trembling. >> you are typical. i want you to look down, lean forward. >> no. so you don't have to do more.
8:39 am
typically we ask people to take a step off the plank. if you are willing to do that. >> he's shaking. very good. >> a tweaked version of the technology and software you just saw has been developed by a former student. he is a former stanford player. six nfl teams and seven division one college teams are paying big money to use virtual reality this year. we will have more on all of that tonight. >> how is that going to help the football? that's what i'm trying to figure out? >> backups typically don't get reps in practice. so this time when they are using virtual reality they can get as many reps. there are limits on how much time players can spend on the field but no limits on how much time they can spend alone with virtual reality head set.
8:40 am
>> that walking the plank, i felt for you. >> how do you know we're real? >> because he's real. >> real news here. and you can see jeff's full report tonight on "60 minutes sports" on show time, a division of cbs. america's growing thirst for craft beer -- >> we made a beer with this two weeks ago using these freshly picked from our farm. >> smells great. what does that smell like to you? >> heaven. >> absolutel

8:44 am
cracked open a cold one this holiday weekend it may have been a craft beer. a record number of brewerys have opened. the main ingredient is the hops flower. for almost a century the pacific northwest dominated the hops market. farmers in the east are trying to jump on board and strike it
8:45 am
rich. >> keep going. >> reporter: a hops farmer. >> these hops are cascades, a little past their prime but should be pretty intense. >> reporter: the hop is the flower. the oil gives beer its tangy taste and aroma. reaching up 18 feet high harvest time can be an adventure. after the plants come down each flower is stripped from the leaves. you can do it by hand but he does it with machines he designed and built with his own hands. he was once a lawyer and then a high school teacher but he finally discovered his true passion. >> i don't like to leave the farm if i don't have to. it's like being on vacation every day. >> reporter: he started growing hops eight years ago and sold to local brewerys. in 2012 he helped persuade the maryland legislature to pass a
8:46 am
law allowing farmers to make and sell their own beer so long as some ingredients are grown on the farm. he opened a small brewery and business went wild. moneywise the brurery is profit center. >> how much of your profit is beer-related? >> i think the farm grossed about 320,000 last year and about 300 of that was beer. >> reporter: that money helps his small farm survive and allows him to continue with less profitable operations. george washington had this kind -- like raising his prized and spoiled sheep for their wool. >> i might have to go back to teaching. >> or lawyering. >> reporter: what makes his
8:47 am
business so profitable is the quality of his hops. smells great. what does that smell like to you? >> heaven. absolutely heaven. >> reporter: and take it from me the beer is pretty darn good, too. this is my favorite. >> if it wasn't so strong i could drink that all day. >> reporter: how do you have time to farm? >> it takes a lot of beer to farm. it is hard work. >> reporter: last year 16 states had their first documented harvests in almost 100 years. new york passed a law that requires a farm brew to use at least 20% new york grown hops. in 2024 it jumps to 90%. farmers are scrambling to spread their expertise. >> i think we can keep up with the supply and demand but we
8:48 am
have to keep it going and by educating the farmers that they can grow hops. >> reporter: in the 1800s new york was the number one producer of hops in the country and number two in the world. today it has just 250 acres. that history gives hope to farmers. >> i think we can do something here. i think we will be all right and back where we were 100 years ago. >> reporter: back in maryland bars tolls us he prefers the intimacy of a small family farm. >> we have a specialty cash crop that can help a farmer increase his income, help support the family farm, get a few thousand dollars extra to put in his pocket so he can buy that pig. >> reporter: or the alpaca. >> i love that model. i think that is the model that will allow us to be successful
8:49 am
in the east. >> reporter: a model that allows him to stay close to the land and the new crop. >> you treat them like friends. >> they are my babies. >> you have to look his enthusiasm. it is infectious. >> the non-pacific northwest is expected to be up 41% this year. i think that is fantastic. >> feels like being on vacation like here. grumpy cat seeks perfection. that's next.
