7:04 am
anything like this in their careers. a wildfire growing so fast with such ferocity. there are 1,500 on the scene here and 178 engines and ten air tankers but despite this massive wildfiring effort it is grog behind me. one look at the huge wall of fire and it becomes clear. >> we had to continually retreat against that advancing wall of fire and something i haven't witnessed in this section ever. we have strike teams here and, remember, our priorities are life, property, and infrastructure. and lives also include firefighters' lives. we can't stand in front of that wall of fire. that is self-defeating. >> reporter: the fire raced through here late wednesday afternoon and scorching almost everything in its past, but the spot fires that remain that are still endangering homes. on tuesday, the fire tore

7:07 am
this surveillance video obtained by daily mail.com apparently shows ryan lochte and three other american swimmers returning to the olympic village around 7:00 a.m. sunday morning. brazilian authorities note the men do not appear shaken and even joke around and point to conflicting accounts of the alleged mugging and why two of the swimmers gunnar bentz and jack conger were retained at rio's airport wednesday night for further questioning. initially lochte told nbc a dramatic tale of being robbed by men posing as police while riding in a taxi with his teammates. >> they pulled us over and they pulled out their guns and they told the other swimmers to get down on the ground and the guy pulled out his gun. he cockeed it. >> reporter: ryan lochte said a single gunman held them up and.
7:08 am
wednesday night, lochte's version changed again. he reportedly told nbc there were exactly two gunmen and that the gun was just pointed generally in his direction. he also said the swimmers' taxi was not pull over, but instead was at a gas station when they were held up. lochte says the mugging took place after a night during much all four swimmers went out partying and questions about the robbery from the very beginning. olympic officials denied it had taken place but later backtracked. >> they had it wasn't true, so this -- i guess the story may change. >> reporter: lochte, a member of the men's relay team that took gold in rio, had stood by his story all week. his attorney says brazilian official are just trying to deflect criticism of problems at the rio games. now the two swimmers who were detained here in rio have now been released, but they are not allowed to leave brazil until they testify about the robbery and they are expected to speak

to police later today. charlie? >> ben tracy in rio, thanks. the new top executives at donald trump's campaign promised to highlight their candidate's strength in the weeks ahead. they were front and center yesterday at a meeting with trump before he got his first national security briefing at the republican nominee. after the staff, they say they plan to run more ads this week and pay more attention to attracting new voters. major garrett looks at the public debut of trump's new campaign team. >> reporter: yesterday's meeting looked a bit like a presidential campaign session. reporters were ushered in and hurried out as donald trump discussed national security. former retired general and defense intelligence chief michael flynn was the marquee adviser but trump, we are told, tapped former new york city mayor rudy giuliani to organize task forces on ideas discussed to defeat isis. of course, the spotlight was also on the two newest people in the room.
7:10 am
donald trump quietly listening held a national security round table giving a first glimpse into his campaign under new management. his third campaign manager kellyanne conway sat next to his second, paul manafort. to their left, steve bannon who was named the campaign's new chief executive. >> you need to add talent and more people. it's a busy time getting to the last 12 weeks of the campaign. >> reporter: her key role is to travel with trump and providing a voice on politic he respects. something missing since trump sacked his first campaign manager corey lewandowski. several sources say manafort's role is diminished and acknowledges trump has lost ground since the gop convention. conway denied those claims. >> paul has the exact same title today he had yesterday and many of those responsibilities. >> reporter: in a memo to staff obtained by cbs news, manafort said he will continue to provide the big picture, long-range campaign vision. but cbs news has learned trump's
7:11 am
state organizations are only now developing and many lack the resources and guidance to compete in the fall. despite the corporate sounding title bannon was once called the most dangerous political operative in america. bannon's expertise, his brass knuckl knuckl knuckled advocacy. he will provide attacks on hillary clinton and this june interview with trump is just one example. >> over the weekend, she would not say radical islam. do you believe she could stand up with scrutiny with what her track record is? >> i don't think she is. she is very weak and i think a person doesn't have what it takes. >> reporter: we are told that all three spoke freely during the national security conversation and no awkwardness was present. hours late, trump received his first classified intelligence briefing as the gop nominee. >> major, thanks. trump's campaign manager
7:12 am
kellyanne conway will be with us the next hour. she talks about her role and the expectations for the candidate. that is ahead on "cbs this morning." in the latest polls in three important swing states show that hillary clinton is ahead. the quinnipiac poll finds she has double-digit advantages in colorado and virginia. clinton lead in iowa by three points. a different poll gives donald trump an 11-point edge in indiana. nancy cordes reports on how clinton is trying to downplay her recent surge. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. so let's face it. it's not the worst problem in the world. but leading by a lot in the polls does come with its own set of challenges. first and foremost, how do you keep your supporters and volunteers and donors from assuming the race is over? >> don't be complacent, my friend. >> reporter: one way to do is by insisting that the race is a lot closer than they think. >> i'm the underdog until they call me the winner. >> reporter: it's a tough case to make now that clinton is leading in most of the battleground states.
7:13 am
recent polls show her up by 12 points in virginia and 11 in pennsylvania. >> ask everybody you know to register. >> reporter: that didn't stop clinton to try to enlist new volunteers in philadelphia this week. >> we have packets for you at the door so you can also canvass. >> reporter: it is true that anything can happen. in 1988 one poll showed michael dukakis leading then president george h.w. bush by 17 points in late july. by election day, bush won by 12 points. >> there are just 83 days left in this election. >> reporter: as clinton counts down the days, her campaign strategy is to play it safe. she has not had an official press conference in 258 days. her last network interview was nearly three weeks ago where she got tripped up again answering questions about her e-mails. >> director comey said my answers were truthful. >> reporter: her running mate is doing a series of interviews and yesterday was asked about his
7:14 am
assertion in 2002 that president clinton should have resigned after the lewinsky scandal. >> i was disappointed like a lot of folks but no reason to reiterate problems 20 years ago and what americans want to talk about what do we do today and tomorrow. >> reporter: clinton has seen firsthand that voter complacency can have confidence. she ended up losing early because some of her supporters felt she didn't need that to come out and vote. her campaign wants to prevent that from happening in november. historic flooding in louisiana could lead to the state's biggest housing crisis since hurricane katrina. the disaster has led to at least 13 deaths, tens of thousands of homes are affected, forcing many people to stay in shelters. 20 louisiana parish have been declared disaster areas. many of them are still under flash flood warnings today. omar villafranca is in sorrento

>> of course, not. he and mrs. clinton remind informed. the world is in danger and even though she has been secretary of state the fact this changes every day and there are things that you and i will never know that now secretary clinton and mr. trump are learning and i think we should applaud that in a very nonpartisan way. >> you were formerly with the ted cruz campaign and super pact. he said what he had to say at the convention. what did you know about donald trump that ted cruz doesn't know? >> that he is very gracious, that he promotes women. i'm told. i'm the first male republican campaign manager in presidential plig history and that tells you a lot about donald trump and it also tells you a great deal about him he never said that to me. hey, we would like a woman, are you available? i'm there based -- i think it's symptomatic of who donald trump has been in his own corporation and elevating and promoting women. the other thing about donald trump to learn he doesn't look at things through a political lens. i think senators and congressmen and governors tend to and they

cardiovascular disease and overall mortality. we were not designed to be sitting and our modern technology has us we can go through our day without getting up. you need to think about your day and how you change your normal pattern. >> do you have a ratio of you should sit x amount and move x amount? >> 150 minutes of moderate or 65 minutes a week of vigorous exercise. unfortunately, we don't have the research there to give us health recommendations about sitting. the statement basically says in simple terms, sit less, move more. >> do we all need standing desks? >> that is one answer. apps on your phone. >> somebody at the table has a standing desk. >> who is that? charlie? of course. you're healthy. >> what you just said, 75 minutes a week and ten minutes a day. only ten minutes a day! >> it's not a lot.
8:36 am
i tell my patients 30 minutes, five days a week, there is your 1506 minut 150 minutes. just changing from sitting to standing an hour a day you're decreasing your metabolism. you change the health of the blood vessels and how your body process fat. when you look at somebody smoking you say you know they are doing something to damage their health. look at all of us. it's a silent sneaky thing. you never think it's harming us slowly. >> so many of those bands say you should go 10,000 steps and we did that test. i think charlie had 13 by noon and i looked like 1,200. do you give any validity to 10,000 steps and a number everybody should hit? >> i think it's a great number. i think 10,000 is a good start and i think that anything you can do, like, standing up while you're talking on the phone and having your meeting, walking while you're having a meeting or parking your car farther away so you have to walk and getting appears on your phone that buzz to stand up.

>> do you practice what you preach? >> i try. i do. >> great to have you. >> but she attenuates! got that. thank you, dr. tara. always good to see you. the world's longest aircraft dubbed the flying bum takes its maiden flight and when you see it, you get it. it is more than 30 feet long and more than 50 feet longer than the passenger plane. its creator say the spacecraft can stay in the sky for days. johnathan vigliotti went to see it. >> reporter: on an air field just north of london, the world's longest aircraft spread its tiny wings and takes to the sky. measuring it around the width and length of a football field, the airlander 10 is not what you'd call conventional. up close, it looks even stranger. >> this is the flight death. >> reporter: but david burns,
8:38 am
chief test pilot, who was at the control for the airlander's maiden flight, you need to look behind the shape of the hull which has been, you could say, a "butt" of some folks to appreciate this very modern flying machine. >> a normally flight deck. any pilot would feel at home coming in here. >> reporter: the helium airlander is technology taking the shape and lift benefits of a blimp and combining them with the maneuverability of a helicopter and load capacity of a small cargo plane. its creator hybrid air vehicles, claim the aircraft is super efficient. 'essentially the engines of four suvs propel this thing? >> essentially. >> it's not a lot. >> but all we need. >> reporter: it could spend days in the air without refueling but can't compete with planes or helicopters when it comes to speed. how fast can you go? >> i go top speed in this 65 knots but 73 miles per hour. >> you really see that sleek

aerodynamic shape. >> reporter: chris daniels said it could be used to drop supplies in disaster areas. >> it can land on water and lakes and desert, you name it. even ice. >> reporter: it doesn't need an airport or to be tethered to the ground like other airships and benefits undoubtedly appealed to the u.s. army for whom the technology was originally developed, before the program was cancelled due to the troop draw-down in afghanistan and budget cuts. daniel says this allowed the company to buy it back and develop the aircraft for civilian uses. the airlander's biggest challenge, however, has been overcoming its troubled family history. say the word airship and people usually think of the hindenburg disaster of 1937. >> it's going down! >> reporter: even modern blimps occasionally get a bad wrap. in october, this unmanned military blimp came loose from his moorings and drifted across
8:40 am
central pennsylvania, tearing power lines and causing chaos. daniel says there are many misconceptions. >> we get people say surely it pops like a balloon. no, it doesn't. we can riddle that hole with bullets and the helium is under such low pressure and we can see power with the airlander which is one of the safest boards of transports. >> reporter: it's a bold statement but there is competition already in the industry. lockheed martin is already developing its own industry. >> i think it's big. the industry is big enough for two people to be in there competing. >> reporter: despite the airlander's considerable size, the skies are big enough too. johnathan vigliotti, cbs news, london. up next, ben tracy learns what it takes to put legends like michael johnson and modern
