aircraft in tokyo after smoke came from its left engine. a pair of navy warplanes collided off coast of north carolina. four crew members ejected and were plucked out of the ocean. all that -- >> co-champions at the spelling bee. >> i can't say anything. i'm only in fifth grade.

[ applause ]
welcome to "cbs this morning." charlie rose is on assignment, so anthony mason is with us. >> hey. made it to memorial day weekend. >> we did. i know. >> welcome. >> nice to have you here. president obama made history a short time ago in japan at the site of the world's first nuclear attack. the president placed a wreath and bowed his head in hiroshima's peace memorial park. he is the first sitting american president to go there. >> a cbs news poll out shows americans are sharply divided about the use of atomic bombs in 1945. 43% approve, while 44% do not. support is way down from 2005. that's when 57% approved. margaret brennan is in hiroshima, traveling with the president and joins us now. good morning. >> reporter: emotions were just too raw to visit hiroshima for
more than 70 years. president obama came here, he said, to remind the world of the painful reality of the nuclear threat. more than 70 years after an atomic bomb decimated hiroshima, president obama paid his respects to the 140,000 lives lost. 1,200 feet from the epicenter, he laid a wreath and hugged survivors. flanked by prime minister abe, they gazed at the iconic dome that are withstood an explosion worth more than 20,000 tons of tnt. >> we stand here in this city and force ourselves to imagine the moment the bomb fell. we listened to a silent cry. >> reporter: the speech was remarkable for what it did not say. there was no apology for harry truman's decision to drop the bomb. >> when you have the weapon that will win the war, it would be
foolish if you didn't use it. >> reporter: 8:15, august 6th, 1945, a nearly five-ton bomb named little boy dropped from the enola gay. three days later, another struck nagasaki, killing more than 70,000. truman justified it as a necessary evil to end the war, but the bombings also triggered the dawn of a nuclear age. one that president obama has struggled to contain. he appealed to the next generation to ensure that a nuclear weapon is never used again. >> that is a future we can choose. a future in which hiroshima and nagasaki are known not as the dawn of atomic warfare but as the start of our own moral awakening. >> reporter: and president obama has brokered significant arms control agreements but admits only modest progress on nuclear security. anthony, pentagon delta shows that he -- data shows that he has released america's own
stockpile less than any post-war president. >> margaret brennan in japan. thanks. more than 38 million people are expected to travel this memorial day weekend. it will be a major test for the tsa. the agency is trying to avoid more scenes like this one. long screening lines have plagued airports across the country, leading to a sharp rise in frustration. >> more than 2.5 million people are expected to fly over the holiday weekend. here's a look at the flights currently in the air. look at that. we have correspondents keeping tabs on security lines at the busiest airports. we'll begin with kris van cleave at reagan, outside washington. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. we're learning the department of homeland security is going ask congress for per mission to use another $28 million essentially make nearly 3,000 screeners full-time employees. they say that will help screen an additional 80,000 flyers a
day. >> step on over. step on over. >> reporter: the first real test of the summer travel season is underway for the tsa. airports are bracing for record crowds as more than 231 million passengers fly from june through august. that's 95, 500 more flyers a day than last year. and the seasonal surge comes as the shorthanded tsa struggles to keep the security lines moving. >> year to date, more than 70,000 american airlines customers have missed flightstude excessive -- flights due to excessive wait times. >> reporter: on wednesday, kerry philipovitch told congress more than 3,000 have missed flights due to delays -- >> the tsa did not adjust its model after protocols were changed. >> reporter: as we saw last week at midway airport, patience is already running thin as wait times have at points surpassed two hours.
the nation's airport are worried it will get worse as travelers start taking summer vacations. >> passengers are frustrated, taking their frustrations out on tsa, airport, and airline employees. the anxiety caused by concern over missing a flight creates an environment that is already challenged and difficult. >> reporter: the summer surge means planes are going to be fuller, so if you miss your flight today, the airlines say it could be tomorrow, even sunday before they're able to find a seat to get you where you're trying to go. >> that's not good news considering it's a holiday weekend. thank you very much. chicago's o'hare airport has seen the worst lines, too. travelers who missed flights last week had to sleep on some cots. dean reynolds is there with how the tsa is being tested this weekend. dean, it is a test. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. you can see me, i've been through o'hare many times before, and i have never seen
anything quite like this. there are very, very long lines. the good news is, they are moving rather briskly. we've timed some people from the end of the line to getting through security, and they are getting through in about maybe an hour or more now. o'hare has been at the epicenter of the tsa mess, and there have been lawmakers who have called for the resignation of the tsa leadership if things were not improving. so they've added about 58 new security officers to the mix here along with bomb-sniffing k-9 units to help expedite the process. keep in mind that last year there were 77 million people who moved through o'hare. the problem is that at times recent three looks as if they've all come back at once. this is the first big test of the tsa to see if they can avoid another meltdown. gayle, you can see it's quite a
test. >> thank you very much. homeland security secretary jeh johnson who oversee the tsa will be here ahead. severe weather could disrupt travel this weekend. two people are missing in texas after flash flooding may have swept them away overnight. cars got stranded in high water, and thousands lost power. tornadoes stormed across the central plains. the violent weather has damaged or destroyed dozens of homes. omar villafranca is in silver lake, kansas, near topeka, which is under the threat of more storms. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this barn behind me used to have farming equipment. you see it's just a pile of broken wood and twisted metal now. weather officials are saying this wasn't even caused by a tornado but by strong winds, and there's more of this type of weather that can do this type of damage in today's forecast.
tornadoes, damaging winds, and powerful strikes of lightning continued to punish the central u.s. thursday. >> highway 6, under water. >> reporter: this tornado plowed through bryant, texas, tearing through power lines and ripping the roof off this home. >> very scary, thankful to be alive. >> reporter: more than 60 homes suffered damage. the ponzio family house is barely standing. >> everything is wiped out. boxing some up, you try to figure what do i take and what happen do i leave. 29 years gone in a flash. >> reporter: more than 14 inches of rain in parts of the state triggered flash flooding prompting dozens of rescues. >> my gosh. look at them. >> reporter: cars were submerged as highways overflowed with water. >> we were going to turn and go back that direction, and it looks like more of the same that way. we're back here. >> reporter: here in kansas, at least five more tornadoes were
reported thursday. the devastating storms have damaged or destroyed dozens of homes here and left thousands without power. >> you could hear it ripping things apart. honestly didn't think it would be this bad. >> reporter: kansas governor sam brownback toured the damage west of here in dickinson county where more than a dozen homes were destroyed. while people here are going to start cleaning up once the sun comes up, they're also going to have to keep an eye on the sky because there could be more severe weather on the way. gayle? >> thank you. this morning, donald trump has enough delegates to clench the republican presidential nomination. cbs news estimates that trump has reached the 1,237 needed to win on the first convention ballot. the support of more uncommitted delegates put him over the top. donald trump posted this picture of him celebrating with a big mac and fries on his private plane. you got to love that shot. chip reid has more reaction as donald trump looks ahead.
chip, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. donald trump holds two events in california today ahead of that state's primary on june 7th. now that he's locked up the gop nomination, truk trump's eager to remind skeptics it's not too late to jump aboard the trump train. >> today was the day we hit the 1,237. >> reporter: on the stump and in a new campaign video -- >> donald trump is not going to be the republican nominee. >> donald trump is not getting the 1,237. >> reporter: donald trump gloated about proving his doubters wrong. >> you had our president saying he will not be the nominee. really? >> reporter: already settling his sights on a post-presidential legacy -- >> i want a statue in washington, d.c. maybe share it with jefferson or something. >> reporter: preparing for the political fight ahead, trump offered a preview of a 15-state general election strategy. >> i want my energy to be put in states where it could go either way. we're going to focus on new
york. i was in the state of washington. we'll play heavy as an example in california. >> reporter: those states haven't backed a republican in more than 20 years. trump's counting on his unconventional style to change that. >> it's a choice between sharing in this great energy wealth or in the poverty promise ed by hillary clinton. >> reporter: trump took aim at hillary clinton and pledged more support for the fossil fuel industry. >> a total untapped oil and gas recorded votes federal lands equal an estimate d $50 trillio. we're loaded. we didn't know it. we're loaded. >> reporter: trump's energy speech in north dakota was also politically strategic. he began the day 33 delegates shy of the 1,237 necessary to secure the nomination. but before his speech, a number of unpledged delegates in north dakota declared support for trump, helping him cross the threshold.
anthony? >> thanks. hillary clinton is on the defensive after fallout from a critical state department report on her private e-mail server. editorials argue the continuing scandal will make it harder for clinton to win the white house. her primary opponent, bernie sanders, is now pushing to debate donald trump after clinton said no to sanders. julianna goldman looks at clinton's response to the newest e-mail criticism. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. hillary clinton has said she's willing to cooperate with ongoing investigations, but she did not with the state department audit and she says neither that nor the pending fbi investigation will influence her campaign, she admit as she has before that her e-mail server was a mistake. >> my e-mail use was widely known in the government throughout the department. >> reporter: hillary clinton played defense thursday following the state department inspector general's support which concluded diplomatic security officials did not and would not approve her exclusive
reliance on a personal e-mail account. >> everything i did was permitted. >> reporter: clinton previously sounded confident the state department was on board. yesterday she wasn't so clear. >> i thought it was allowed. i knew past secretaries of state used personal e-mail. >> this was bad judgment. ♪ >> reporter: the republicans' presumptive nominee, donald trump, seized on the report citing it as proof clinton isn't honest or transparent. >> it's devastating the report. you look at her history, and this is her history. >> reporter: trump also tried to capitalize on the ongoing race between clinton and bernie sanders. >> i'd love to debate bernie. he's a dream. if we can raise $10 or $15 million for charity, which would be an appropriate amount. >> reporter: senator sanders seemed delighted by the idea after being denied a debate with clinton in california. >> i think it might be one of the highest rated events in television history. >> i think it -- the goal would
be to have it in some big stadium here in california. >> reporter: clinton and sanders have not met on a debate stage since april. it's clear this time clinton isn't playing. >> i understood they said that was a joke, and i'm going to look forward to debating donald trump. >> reporter: trump's campaign insists he was just joke being a debate with sanders. whether we asked one official -- when we asked one official on scale of one to ten if tell happen with ten being it will definitely happen, they gave the idea a zero. >> thank you. >> no ambiguity there. >> not at all. federal health officials are sounding an alarm after a startling discovery. defense department researchers announced the arrival of a nightmare bacteria in the u.s. they say the supersuggest about resistant to one of our strongest antibiotics. the head of the cdc says "it is the end of the road for antibiotics unless we act urgently." let's ask our dr. david agus how much to worry.
good morning. >> good morning. >> david, is this our worst fears coming true? >> well, this is more of a wake-up call than an alarm call. this is a woman in pennsylvania who somehow related to the military, who had a urinary tract infection that had strange resistance to antibiotics. they sent it to the walter reed army medical center. they found that it had the dna to be resistant to one of the last-resort antibiotics. it's the last last resort antibiotic to show resistance in the united states. it had happened to china, but here it's the first case. she's going to be fine, but it mean the last piece to the puzzle is here on our homeland in the united states. we have to be aware. it's a wake-up call for all of us to question whether we need antibiotics, and also for the government to really push these new things in the pipeline to help us. >> now the word is she didn't travel, so to raises two questions -- how did she get it and how contagious is it?
>> you're right. we don't know how she got it. whether it came from food or she picked it up from somebody else. she clearly didn't travel over the last several months. is it contagious? well, this kind of restones bacteria is a -- resistance to bacteria is a piece of dna separate from chromosomes and can spread to other bacteria. we are worried about it. they have tested many other samples, and they haven't found it yet. so the testing will keep going, and obviously they're going to test all the family members and acquaintances she had in pennsylvania. >> all right. scary stuff. thank you very much, dr. agus. is silicon valley showing an iron fist? ahead, how a tech billionaire's fight with gawker could be a sign of online giants influencing the information that you receive.

[ siren ] >> i remember that. >> i know. incredible. >> anthony, did you recognize the voice of norah o'donnell on stephen colbert last night? >> i thought it was very familiar. >> i like whether that happens. >> cameo appearance there. >> we like that show, "colbert," don't we? >> we like it very much and the people there, too.
welcome back to "cbs this morning." coming up in this half hour, airport security is put to the test this holiday weekend. travel editor peter greenberg is in studio 57. we'll ask if the tsa pre-check spring paying off, and if there are shortcuts to avoid long lines. the silicon valley targeting the u.s. media. new developments in a high-profile feud and how it may be the latest sign of tech titans using their money as muscle. that's ahead. time to show some of the headlines. "the new york times" says animal lift think north korea -- analysts think north korea may be the first country to carry out digital attacks for financial gain. analysts found a rare code that was used to steal more than $81 million from the bangladesh central bank and attack two other asian banks. the code was seen previously in two attacks blamed on the north including the sony pictures hack in 2014. "the "waco tribune-herald"" in texas has a shakeup at bayer
university. school administrators mishandled allegations of sexual assaults involving the football team. bayer fired the football coach, art blouse, and demoted ken starr from his job as president. starr is a former special prosecutor that investigated the bill clinton/monica lewinsky scandal. new york's "daily news" says a rapper faces charges in a deadly shooting. surveillance video shows roland collins opening fewer during a t.i. concert. one person was killed, two others wounded. collins was shot and faces attempted murder and illegal weapons counts and a murder charge is expected. there are cameras everywhere. nashville's "tennesseean" has the final message by a woman who got lost and died hiking the appalachian trail in 2013. 66-year-old jaralene largays' body was found in maine. her journal shows she wanted her husband and daughter to know
where her body of found. her notes indicate she starved to death nearly three weeks after authorities stopped looking for her. >> tough for her family. >> yeah. terrible story. >> very hard. the "washington post" shows a moving tribute to america's war dead. soldiers placed nearly a quarter million u.s. flags yesterday at grave markers in arlington national cemetery. this tradition is known as flags, and it began 68 years ago. they will be removed after memorial day, before the cemetery opens to the public. >> important reminder on this memorial day weekend as people are celebrating the holiday to think about our men and women who have served. we're keeping an eye on airports this morning as holiday travel gets underway. one innovation in atlanta could help the tsa solve its problem with long security lines. the experiment involves new conveyor belts and larger bins. david begnaud is at hartsfield jackson atlanta national airport. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. no nightmares here in atlanta
from the tsa checkpoint to the end of the line. it's nearly 200 feet, but look at how well the line is moving. the wait time as of this moment, about 15 to 20 minutes. the tsa is expecting to check 82,000 people through security here in atlanta. the near record is 88,000. that was set last year at thanksgiving. they'll come close to that record. now more that new technology. here's how it works. imagine walking up to the checkpoint where you put your bags in, and instead of having to wait to get your bag through the machine and push it yourself, you put it in the bin, you put the bin on an automated conveyor belt, and it goes, it's on the way. if somebody in front of you is taking too long, maybe distracted by their child, you're on your way. you go through, you get your body scan or the metal detector, your bag is on the way. on the other end, if your bag gets flagged for further screening, it gets kicked left. there is a second conveyor belt so that your bag is sidelined. if you're good to go and your bag is fine, you pick it up, you're on your way, you get on your flight. anyone who needs further
screening steps to the side so as not to hold up the line. this is being used in london, amsterdam. the results, we're told, good. depending on how it goes in atlanta over the summer, they may fast track this around the country. anthony, new york and los angeles may be bigger cities, but atlanta is the world's busiest airport. more business comes through here than any other airport in the world. >> david begnaud, thanks. here's a look at the security line at another airport, o'hare in chicago. passengers are seeing delays on this start of the holiday weekend. air travel's expected to hit an all-time high this year with the tsa preparing to screen some 740 million people. that's nearly 100 million more than in 2013. cbs news travel editor peter greenberg is here. good morning. >> good morning. >> when is this going to get better? when are the tsa improvements going to kick in? >> i wouldn't hold my breath.
training takes six to eight to ten weeks. >> what about the efforts by american, delta, united to spend up to $4 million on additional workers? will that help? >> it's triage for the airlines. they need get people on the line. they can't speed the line up. they're not insuspecting you. they're trying to figure out how many passengers are late for a flight to figure out which planes will release and which will hold based on how they connect. >> the numbers are staggering. there's a big difference as we saw between the chicago airport and what's happening in atlanta. the numbers are 70,000 missed flights for american airlines waiting in lines. what do you think needs to happen? >> first of all, people are applying in record numbers to become members of the tsa pre-check program. 15,000 per day. >> does it work? >> no, it doesn't. i was live frommi inming -- i w flying out of jfk earlier, i've had pre-check since the day started. i took a photograph. look at me, empty, closed. there it is. the bottom line is if you're
joining the program, in they're at the's supposed to work, but you have to have people to man it and open the lines. >> gayle asked an interesting question yesterday to the jetblue ceo about waiving the checked baggage fees. an interesting piece by gayle collins in "the new york times" about how much airlines make from fees, $3.8 billion. they're also making money when people reschedule flights. where is -- is there a scam here? >> yeah. it's the tipping point. a survey came out with the fact that they estimate $4.3 billion hit to the u.s. economy based on security wait times. at the point where that begins to exceed in a large way the amount of money the airlines make, maybe that's when they'll -- >> the airlines are making record profits. >> they are. >> you changed the times on when people could fly. you used to see first flight out -- >> go at 11:00 in the morning. there's nobody there. >> thank you very much. we'll go straight to the top and get more answers. homeland security -- ahead, jeh johnson in studio 57 ahead only
on "cbs this morning." new video shows a scary moment when a korean air jet's engine burst into flames. the boeing 777 was about to take off this morning from tokyo's busiest airport. firefighters rushed to the runway and sprayed the engine with foam. there were more than 300 passengers on board. they escaped down emergency slides. everybody on board is safe, and the airline says it's investigating the cause of that fire. >> can you imagine looking out the window and seeing that? >> no, but at least you're on the ground before you lift up. i'm thinking, i'm going to get out of this window some kind of way. those windows are little. i'm getting out. >> i can see gayle -- where is my bag, my golf clubs? >> making a new door. is silicon valley trying to chip away at critics? who gets a final say? if you're heading out, take us with us. you can watch live through the cbs all-access app on your

surprised when a company like gawker does the tabloid-oriented expose reporting that's taken for granted in new york. i think that's partly what's going on. >> reporter: perhaps above all else, silicon valey values privacy, made plain when apple refused to decrypt a phone belonging to the san bernardino shooters. the valley also exists to facilitate the flow of information. one reason why facebook was criticized for allegedly sensoring conservative news on its -- censoring conservative news on its trending page. >> facebook's entire business is premised on the idea that people should be much more open and should be sharing more information. it does fly in the face of kind of radically transparent ideal that a lot of companies profess. >> reporter: "wire's" jason taz believes the magnitude of power the valley has amassed has inspired an equal degree of scrutiny. amazon founder jeff bezos bought the "washington post" in 2013 while apple reportedly
considered buying time-warner, parent company of cnn and hbo. >> this started as a bunch of true believers in a garage somewhere with crazy ideals. what has happened is they won. now they are the new power structure. that is a very different relationship. i'm not sure that everybody within silicon valley and the tech industry appreciates that people look at you as the big guys and sometimes the bad guys. >> reporter: with regard to the fight, gawker is valued at more than $250 million. nick denton, its owner, had to bring in an outside investor in order to raise the found fight the lawsuits here in question. peter thiel, on the other hand, is worth some $2.7 billion according to "forbes." >> he said where's my wall. ♪ >> yeah. he also says i'm a victim. this a rightful crusade. and important to note many agree with him. >> it's easy to see both sides. a fifth grader just

it is friday, may 27th, 2016, on a holiday weekend. happy memorial day. welcome back to "cbs this morning." there is more real news ahead including the tsa's biggest test on this holiday weekend. only on "cbs this morning," we went straight to the top, homeland security secretary jeh johnson is here to talk about shortening those lines. first, here's today's "eye opener" at 8:00. president obama came here, he said, to remind the world of the painful reality of the nuclear threat. weather officials are saying this wasn't even caused by a tornado but by strong winds, and there's more in today's forecast. the department of homeland security will ask congress to take nearly 3 -- to make 3,000 screeners full-time employees.
this is the first big test of the tsa to see if they can avoid another meltdown, and it's quite a test. >> nightmares in atlanta from the tsa checkpoint to the end of the line, nearly 200 feet. look at how well the line is moving. >> when are the tsa improvements going to kick in? >> i wouldn't hold my breath. they have to train them, six to eight to ten-week period. we're talking labor day. the summer's spoken for. hillary clinton said she's willing to cooperate with ongoing investigations and acknowledged that the e-mail server was a mistake. trump's eager to remind skeptics it's not too late to jump aboard the trump train. >> donald trump today officially clinched the republican nomination which he's meese one step closer to moving into the smallest house he's ever lived in. he's a nice guy. good morning to you i'm gayle king with norah o'donnell and anthony mason.
good to have you, anthony. charlie on -- charlie's on assignment. president obama is the first president to visit hiroshima, the city wiped out by the nuclear bombs in 1945. the explosion and after management killed 140,000 people. >> he laid a wreath and hugged one of the few remaining survivors and called for a future free of nuclear weapons. >> we may not be able to eliminate man's capacity to do evil, so nations and the alliances that we formed must possess the means to defend ourselves. we must have the courage to escape the logic of fear and pursue a world without them. >> reporter: the president did not apologize for president harry truman's decision to drop the bombs. this morning our eyes are on the tsa's handling of holiday crowds. we're watching airport delays closely because an estimated $2.6 million travelers are
flying over the long weekend. the tsa plans to add hundreds of workers, but relief may not come fast enough. chicago's o'hare airport has been a hotbed of frustration with long security lines. patience is also running thin at midway airport. many passengers had to wait more than two hours last week. atlanta's airport is experimenting with a process to speed up the process. homeland security secretary jeh johnson is here at the table. he's in charge as you know of the tsa. we welcome you. always good to have you. >> good morning. thanks for having me. >> this is your flifirst time. don't be a stranger. everybody traveling this weekend is looking to hear what you have to say. i know you don't like the long lines either. >> correct. >> how are you feeling this weekend as people head to the airport? confident? worried, concerned? >> first of all, in the face of increased travel volume, we are not going to compromise aviation security.
we're going to keep passengers moving this weekend, but we're also going keep them safe. that is our principal responsibility. that's the principal responsibility of tsa. >> i heard one of your people say speed is not going to replace security. we all get that and appreciate that. >> yes. that's correct. >> this is not acceptable either to you, though. >> we have just in the last several weeks converted a lot of part-time to full-time. we are authorized to pay overtime to deal with the increased travel volume. i just yesterday sent to congress a request for what we refer to as reprogramming so we can convert 2,700 tsos from part-tipar parttime to full time. on average it is the case that for 90% of travelers, the wait sometime 30 minutes or less. it's clear that at the busyist airports, the hubs like chicago, l.a.x., newark, we are experiencing longer wait times. that's one of the reasons why we're encouraging people to join
t tsapre. now we have something like 16,000 people a day. nationwide, if you're in ts tsa pre, your average wait time is around five minutes. >> our travel editor, peter greenberg, said yes, there will be more tsa. but the training time will mean that effectively things won't get better until the end of the summer. is that true? >> we're bringing people on as quickly as we can and expect them to be on board by mid-june. the more immediate need is converting people from part time to full time. i asked congress for authorization to do that yesterday. we've already begun the process. there's a lot more we can do. >> i saw you having words with peter greenberg in the green room because you disagree with his assessment that pre tsa isn't working. >> he points out an observation at one airport at 6:00 a.m. in the morning. the reality is that if are you a member of tsap pre, your averag
is five minutes or less. that's why we're encouraging team join tsa pre-check. >> can you address the criticism? this is not unexpected. travel's going to go up. it's the summer season y. didn't the tsa anticipate this? why weren't changes made in advance of the problem? why be reactive as opposed to proactive? >> a year ago, we focused and dedicated ourselves to aviation security based on world events, based on the findings of our inspector general which really was significant. and so a year ago i told tsa to refocus on aviation security. and a year ago, i said this would lead to more wait times at airports. couple that with the fact that we've seen record numbers of air travelers, and that has led to longer unexpected wait times at some of the nation's busiest airports at certain times of the day. we are now surging resources to
get people in place to accommodate that -- >> as a journalist, i was trying to figure out what really is the problem. i was stunned to learn the profits that the airlines are making. that's great. we want them to make a lot of money. that's great. at the same time, they've made $3.8 billion on checked baggage fees. should they -- we consider that -- have free checked baggage, would that help with the lines? >> several senators have called on to spend the checked baggage fee. i have asked the airlines to consider it. there are a number of things the airlines can do and are doing to assist in moving passengers through airports faster. airlines have dedicated some of their employees to the non-security aspects at checkpoints, a good thing. you talked about innovation lines, and innovation lanes in atlanta airport, we think that's a good thing. we all need invest in it. it's like the e-zpass at airports. that's not a short-term fix that's going to help this
weekend. we encourage passengers this weekend to, first of all, pack carefully. think about prohibited items. limit the size of your carry-on to what the airlines expect. when there are prohibited items, an oversized piece of luggage, that slows things down. and plan to get to the airport around two hours early. >> and passage curse do it, too. you get -- passengers can do it, too. you get to line, didn't you know you have to take your belt off? >> we're guilty, too. you're adding 768 screeners by june. the tsa union saying we need 6,000. that's a pretty big gap. i mean, next year's budget -- >> next year's budget request, we've made a request to add thousands more to the work force. in the short term, the key is converting part-time tsos to full time. i've called on congress to do that. >> well if you don't get 6,000 people, what happens? >> i've got to continue. i think congress understands the need for more tsos, and i
believe we will have congressional support for that. congress obviously is hearing from their constituents on this. i think we've worked well with congress so far to address the immediate situation. i think that's going to continue. >> while we still have you, what's the latest that we know about the crash of egyptair? any terrorism involved? >> well, it's barely a week, and we still don't know a lot. the investigation continues. the u.s. has offered our assistance. at this point we do not rule out something nefarious. we can't rule out somethingy in fivious. i -- something nefarious. i think it is relevant that no terrorist organization has claimed credit for it. the investigation continues. we did a lot to enhance aviation security at airports in the region with flights directly to the u.s. last year after sharm el sheikh. we continue to evaluate whether more is necessary. >> secretary jeh johnson, j-e-h jed of j-a-y. when you were a little kid, were you frustrated?

on this unofficial start of summer, we're kicking ought "america the beautiful." the national parks service celebrating 100 years of protecting and promoting america's most awe-inspiring natural resources. when you think of national parks, you probably picture the grand canyon or soaring trees of redwood national park. not aunl the getaway spots are that ancient. peter greenberg is here after exploring one of our newer national parks. good morning. >> good morning. in all, there are 59 national parks across the united states. while it might not surprise you to learn that california is home to more than any other state, you'll find some parks in the most unlikely places by cobbling together the most unlikely pieces of land. in the middle of cuyahoga valley national park where the brandywine falls cascade and natural rock ledges carve through trails lies beaver marsh. looking at the butty that surtround, it's hard to -- looking at the butty that surrounds it, it's hard to imagine this as a garbage dump.
all this, this wasn't really here, was it? >> right. i can vaguely remember it was an open field where things had been >> reporter: the covells remember the spot as a neglected landscape all too common in the industrial region known as the rust belt. >> we always joked about this. >> reporter: the national parks service bought the property in the 1980s, and a radical transformation began. >> then the beaver came in. >> reporter: they joined a team of volunteers who cleared the growing wetlands of the remaining trash. >> we had three our four canoes they were hauling around, pulling up junk. there was old car parts and toilets, everything you could imagine. >> reporter: it's amazing that once they did the first move, the natural cycle takes over. >> exactly. >> reporter: years later, rob would return as the park's civil near, and build this boardwalk that spans the marsh he helped
clear. reclamation is one of the central themes of this national park. 33,000 acres nestled between two ohio cities, cleveland to the north and akron to the south. an area once so polluted the cuyahoga river caught fire. what's the message here? >> there's always hope for reclamation and nature. >> reporter: we saw what looked like an ordinary meadow. 17 years ago, the ridgefield coliseum, stood here, abandoned, after the nba's cleveland cavaliers had moved out. >> if you look at lower and development, you tear down a stadium and build another stadium. >> and grassland. >> reporter: the biggest reclamation project has to be the former dump site. >> where you're standing now was a toxic waste dump, it probably would have been surrounded by 55-gallon drums leaking blue and orange stuff and who knows what.
as far as the eye can see to the back of the woods. >> reporter: crews worked 20 years to restore the site. >> this is a work in progress. >> reporter: today its recovery is robust. >> walk out there now, we'll find thousands of tadpoles swimming in this wetland right here. >> reporter: cuyahoga valley isn't entirely about reclamation. there are plenty of areas where natural beauty has been left virtualy untouched. what we've come to expect from our national treasures. this park is unique in another respect -- one of the biggest surprises is that inside the park, there are nine sustainable farms producing everything from eggs, livestock, even growing blueberries, try finding that inside another national park. you won't. daniel greenfield and his wife michelle run greenfield berry farm on land they lease. >> we're growing natural berries and honey i am a beekeeper and get honey. the blueberries are blooming. soon there will be ripe fruit in
the middle of a national park. >> reporter: when the harvest season starts in five weeks, the cool thing about this park is they invite team come and pick their own -- invite people to come and pick their own blueberries. >> another example of how cool the country is. >> it spent 20 years to clean it up. >> they did it. >> we can go maybe when we're at the convention. take train to the park. >> that's right. >> in all your spare time. good luck with that. >> anthony, are you so right. we can carve out something. lots to see. thanks. did you enjoy your conversation with the -- he was looking forward to talking to you. >> i had to take it for secondary screening. it's over now. >> the tsa pre-check doesn't work anymore. >> a fast check. >> he's on the new watch list. thank you. adele proves she can laugh at her own mistakes. her priceless reaction when she forgot her own lyrics. i always wonder how i do that -- ahead on "cbs this morning."

one of the harvard men was a young john f. kennedy. their lives gave researchers evidence that our relationships with others keep us happy and healthy. dr. robert waldinger was part of the study that is tracking the roughly 60 surviving members. good morning. >> good morning. >> this is fascinating to me. when you all started way back when, 75 years ago, started with adult development. then you wanted to look at happiness. why? >> what we realized was that we had an amazing resource, we could look at their work lives and health, and it added up to how happy they were in their lives. we looked at the package, and we've done it over 75 years. >> you were looking at the size of their skulls, shape and size. at one point, scrotum and hanging length. i don't know what that has to do with happiness. you looked at different things to determine what makes a man
happy. >> the things we think are important change so much over time. in the 1930s, they thought some of those things made a big difference in who you were, what your personality was like, what your happiness levels were. turns out, they don't make much of a difference. now we study different things. >> the truth is what? what leads to happiness? >> our man found that good, close relationships, predicted not just that they would stay happier but that they would stay physically healthier. and that's the amazing thing. >> this is as important or more important than, say, avoiding cigarettes, drinking too much -- >> as important. as important. the chronic stress of being lonely, of being unhappy gets into the body and breaks it down over time. >> i've heard you say people talk about leaning in to work, really we should be talking about leaning in to our relationships. by that you mean what? how do we do that? >> one way, as a zen teacher i think about the importance of how we pay attention.
if you think about it, giving people our full, undivided attention is probably the most valuable thing we have to offer. it's really hard to do. our attention is always being pulled away and fragmented. these electronic devices that we're so attached to, they're hijacking our attention. we can look at this in each moment and noticing whether we're giving our full attention to the important people in our lives over time can really make a difference in those relationships. >> found that looking at relationships of men with their mothers was important. but also something i found interesting was it was about siblings, as well. that's not something a lot of people looked at. >> we found having a close relationship with even one of your siblings made a big difference in your happiness level across adulthood. >> well what about the mothers? >> siblings certainly but why the mothers? >> we spent more time with the siblings than most of us think about. >> than anybody on earth. >> exactly. exactly. >> your sibling has known you
longer than anybody you will meet in your life. >> exactly. those are some of the earliest training grounds for how we are in relationships with each other. >> is it about the number of relationships or the -- about the quality and depth of the relationship relationships? >> it's not the number of facebook friends you have. it's the quality and depth of friends that matter. >> you are a zen priest. >> yes. >> what advice do you have for identifying and cultivating these close relationships that you say are so key to our lifelong happiness? >> simply watch what you're doing each day and who you're with. and seeing if you can pay nature and more careful attention to the -- pay mother nature and more careful attention to the people you're with. put aside preconceptions and just be with somebody. it makes a huge difference. >> this study was exclusively on men. what about women? >> don't we want to be happy? i'll go first.
we want to be happy. anthony does, too. >> we're studying the second generation, the almost 2,000 children of these men we followed for 75 years. the children are all baby-boomers. all in their 50s, 60s, 70s. we're studying their childhoods and how it predicts what their aging will be like. it turns out that if you grew up in a particularly stressful environment, your health breaks down sooner. what we'll do is figure out how that works and whether there are ways we can help people figuring with difficult childhoods. >> i'm thinking you're very happy today because you brought mrs. waldinger with you -- >> waldinger -- >> it rhymes with humdinger. how long have you been married, you kids? >> 32 years yesterday. >> that's great. >> congratulations. thank you. >> doctor, thank you very much. >> a pleasure. the biggest crowd for a single-day sporting event will gather sunday to watch the 100th indy 500.

the thrill from the back seat isn't too bad either. when you take a lap, do the memories still come back? >> sure. there is my element. i've done so many miles, but i love it. >> reporter: recognized as one of the sport's greatest drivers, andretti won his only race at the indy 500 in 1969. >> the crowd beginning to pay tribute to andretti. >> reporter: this track is the definition of anything can happen, isn't it. >> yes, this is right. that is for sure. it can be love/hate relationship. the end of the rainbow, however, the surprise worth the effort. >> reporter: speeds barely topped 75 miles per hour in the inaugural race. the danger of driving the brick oval in the early days earned the track a deadly reputation. >> i think we're very lucky to be in this era. if you look at '50s, '60s, '70s, drivers were losing best friends every other week. >> reporter: scott dixon is the reigning indy series champion. >> it's still evolving.
motor racing always evolves. >> reporter: many of the features in today's cars made their debut at indy. side view mirrors, front and all-wheel drive. and perhaps most importantly seat belts. >> the vehicles matter and can actually shape the automotive industry. >> reporter: marshall prewitt is a former race engineer and automotive journalist. in a recent article for "road & track," he criticizes the race in indianapolis for relying on nostalgia instead of innovation. >> if it wants to matter, to have its 110th race, 120th race, it needs to look to the future and figure out how to to be part of the solution. >> reporter: you go over 200 miles per hour, and we're riding in a golf cart? dixon says driver safety will remain a priority, but not necessarily faster cars. >> with speed comes a lot of danger and safety factors. so the 220 to 230-mile-an-hour phase has been somewhere where
everybody feels most comfortable. >> reporter: how much different is the game now compared to when you raced, especially with all the regulations to improve safety? >> well, i raced until the computer era. so that's the idea is to try to keep as much as possible in the hands of the driver. today, you can make them almost drive themselves. as far as what is necessary for a driver to do today or 50 years ago is the same. basically to take whatever they have to the limit. >> reporter: reigning champion scott dixon will be behind the wheel of this car on sunday. if he wins, heel get to partake -- he wins, he will get to partake in a tradition, drinking the milk out of the milk jug. it's not the most refreshing, but when it's the drink of champions, you just do it. >> drinking the milk out of the jug. you used to get in trouble for doing that as a kid. it tastes better, i think.
