arizona, and maine. it's not clear that move is going to sway these no-votes like john mccain who said the process is already too rushed or rand paul who says he believes the bill is already too expensive. ted cruz of texas and susan collins of maine are also leaning no. she said she's worried about those on medicaid and those with pre-existing republicans. right there they have enough to sink the bill. but graham/cassidy are still going for a hearing today and they hope for a vote later this week on this bill that takes most of the obamacare funding and hands it over to the states that would come up with their own plan, a move that would give states more flexibility. but the time is really running out because if republicans want to pass a health care bill in the senate majority. they only have until saturday.

like i said, i just want to support my teammates. >> cbs news special correspondent james brown is host on nfl on james, good morning. >> goo good morning to you, charlie, norah, and gayle. >> what did you see? >> what i saw was togetherness. i saw owners, the commissioner, nflpa, directors and players all in unison, not necessarily agreed with the method that the players are tay seaying but hearing what they're saying and it is not anti-flag but more pro the issues that have been longstanding and trying to find a solution together. >> i think that's what's concerning to people is they're missing the message about how this started. it didn't start against the
country or patriotism. >> gayle, not at all. we talked about the kind of issues that are systemic and lonld standing and weekend documented in terms of community and color and racial inequal tell and these players aren't just making a statement. most of these players have been actively engaged in trying to um prove the fabric of those communities with their actions and with their dollars, so certain hi they're to be commended in that regard. >> this started with colin kaepernick over a year ago and many people didn't support him at that time publicly. why do you think now is different after president trump's word? >> i have yet to talk to colin kaepernick, so let me be clear about that. what he said in the early days in 2016 is he wanted to raise the level of awareness and engage civil dialogue among not a homogeneous group but
all-inclusive. it's in the public consciousness and people are having conversations across different strata if you will to try to find out what the solution is. >> some fans say they appreciate the players' rights to protest but it shouldn't come during the "national anthem." what do you make of that? >> you know, norah, and i truly and completely understand how many people only see the flag and what it stands for and think that it is an affront to those in law enforcement and military. it's not anti- any of those things. it's more pro what the issues are. i think to the degree, the old expression, can we reason together, sit down and hear one another. that's what we're seeing when we see arthur blank, ownership like arthur blank and pete of the seattle seahawks. they're at least engaged in dialogue. they're hearing the players. you can agree to disagree without being disagreeable is the manner in which they're going about it, norah.
>> where's colin kaepernick a year later? >> a year later? still from a visible standpoint unemployed as far as the nfl is concerned, and that's another whole issue. one thing i have to give him credit for, although i might have chosen a different position myself, he's donated money to be a bridge builder. he's not one sitting up living comfortably off his money and talking about the issue. he's out there on the front lines and he's involved. >> many people would still like to see him play again. thank you very much, james brown. >> thank you, guys. airbnb has changed the way people stay. the company owner and co-founder brian chesky -- there's brian and his mom and sister. they're all there. hi, mom. ahead how they're trying to

airbnb transformed the travel industry in less than ten years. it provides a worldwide online platform to find rentals. founded in 2008, the company is now valued at more than $30 billion. it features more than 3 million listings around the world. it's now expanding to include online restaurant reservations and online experiences. they're posting over 100,000 new experiences today. brian chesky is co-founder and ceo of airbnb. good to have you again. >> thanks for having me again. we realize when people travel they want to have a great experience. we realize what if we can empower new yorkers through a
guided activity from bee keeping, a concert on the roof. if you have a passioning you can share it with another person. we think when you travel rather than going to see a site, you can have a new experience. >> first of all, who knew there was horseback riding. >> you weren't sat feed, mr. chis skiing with having a hugely successful company. you wanted to take it to the next level. >> our company took us here. our community. they were offering their homes but they would come to us and say we'd like to offer more. we said more like what. they said, i would give people a tour of the city or make them dinner and before we knew it, their imaginations kind of showed us a path forward. >> so they provided all the experiences? in other words you didn't go out seeking the experiences? >> no, no. primarily people came to us. we have tens of thousands o people who came to us and applied and said we want to offer experiences to people.
someone might be a kk and said i want to create food in a home. dave in seattle has a wolf conservation. he said i would like to give people a tour of these wolves and i have wolves and you can hike with the wolves. he's making $200,000 a year hiking with wolves. this is an amazing opportunity economically. >> don't you think this is fascinating people want to do more. when i did airbnb in st. bart's the owner left champagne and all of these instructions and i was amazed at the hospitality. >> it proved people were wrong. people thought, this will never work. they'll net let strangers stay in their home. 200 million people, i think it's clear they want to connect with others and share their home and great experiences. >> let's talk about the expansion of airbnb.
how are you doing in china? how are you doing in terms of international expansion? >> china is dog really whelm we're the largest home-sharing company in china. we've had millions of people in china use airbnbal over the world. >> do you have chinese competitors? >> we had a couple. >> uber had a difficult experience. >> a lot of american companies have struggled in china. one difference with airbnb is we're a travel company. if someone in china wants to travel around the world, you would not use a china website. our international global company gives a leg up. >> there was a little bit of kerfuffle about airbnb. when white supremacists wanted to rent, you stepped in about that.
talk about that. >> a rear and a half ago we started noticing discrimination on our platform, which is in opposition. we hired eric holder, and he helped us create a nondiscrimination policy and now when you sign up for airbnb, you have to sign a community dmitment that says you will not discriminate again people, including letting all people inside your home. we noticed a group using our site and we prevented them from using our site and that created a backlash but we have to stand up that another republican your mom and dad who are here are very proud. they thought it was off the wall when they heard the idea. your dad was praising you for the guts to do it. they thought you were going to work in art and here you are. >> exactly 60 years ago little
rock nine made history. in the classroom it's caught the attention of a director, that would be ava duvernay. she talked to our degree ga about that. >> ahead. why they say there's still very intense seg grigation in schools. you're watching "cbs this morning." we appreciate that. we'll be right back.

are high and i'm not willing to walk away from the field with anything less than goal. >> reporter: sebastiana lopez arellano is also looking for gold. >> i don't care what those boys do. what are they going to do. flip me? >> she flipped her motorcycle. she lost her right leg. >> i was in a coma for 36 days or something. when i woke up, i was so happy. we us like, oh, cool. i'm alive, because i thought i died. >> so many come from literally off the couch. >> reporter: aaron moffett is their coach. >> we don't want them to be active one day a year but active 365 days a year. >> reporter: we're standing at a square in front of city hall

temperatures? >> definitely, see very significant warmth, another day should heat 90 degrees at least here in philly. twenty-seven already outside palmyra cove nature park, little haze you but off in the distance barely make out the center city skyline. meanwhile elsewhere around the region at least mid to upper 60s, even mount pocono, started off on pretty warm note. we all warm up efficiently as result, nice day in the poconos, here in the city just hot, again, notice the humidity climbing tomorrow, wednesday, more clouds build in here, maybe even see sprinkle, maria, however, bypasses our area, thankfully, but will children up the surf and mean dangerous rip countries being the next few days, meisha. >> all right, katie, thank you so much for. that will still busy out there, still talking about some accidents. so accident leer record 95 north the ramp to the vine. actually giving you kind of a clear picture of the back up view, as you move toward that area. plus, tanker truck is leaking oil. still lower state road, county

butter. >> we like when people eat the stuff that hello, jim parsons. less m les moonves says it's the fastest yes. politico says they're looking at price's use of planes. on saturday price said he would stop using private aircraft penlding a review. an indiana university freshman was left behind on a school trip and accidentally locked in a cave for 60 hours. 19-year-old lucas was on a spelunking trip. they didn't know he was in the cave when they pad locked the entrance. club members realized he was
missing. >> but, norah, it took a couple of days. if we all went out and you were suddenly missing, i would notice right away. >> that's kind of sad. it raises the prospect of shortages. many pharmaceutical plants on the island are not working. last year pharmaceuticals made up 72% of the exports. the success tore accounted for 25% of total u.s. pharmaceutical exports. >> "usa today" reports on the study. it's based on graduates' income. it includes engineering, pharmaceutical sciences and topping the list, petroleum engineering. the least, composition and rhetor rhetoric. miscellaneous, fine arts and clen cal psychology snow i was a
philosophy major. i wonder where that is on the list. >> i was psychology. that always comes in handy. always. the "washington post" reports on a study that says if you want to stay strong as you age, you should find a purpose. researchers say older adults with a stronger sense of purpose tend to maintain strong hand grips and walking and they're less likely to suffer from heart attacks and strokes. they're likely to live longer. 60 years ago today nine black students entered an all-white school in little rock, arkansas that they will not act as segregationists or integrationists. >> the new movie tea"teach us a is about the little rock nine. bianna golodryga is here with the movie and influential backer. >> still such an important issue facing this country.
the director of that film sonia lowman. the director is ava duvernay. i sat down with them in harlem, new york. >> we're one of the few countries in the world that systematically and deliberately spends less money to help less affluent children. >> it's not true things are equal. there's still segregation happening in all forms all over the country. what i love about the film and what she did and it spoke to my film "thirteenth" in a way that what's supposed to be truths are actually falsehoods, veils that are pulled over ugliness that
america hasn't dealt with. >> reporter: "teach us all" talks about schools all over the country. the film says children living in poverty continue to suffer. >> my mom makes about $9,000 a year. there's five of us. you can kind of malk what we have to go to to survive. >> reporter: what you see in the segregated schools is they tend to get far less resources and more importantly less experienced teachers. >> everyone knows teachers are most influential in a child's development. why do you think this country isn't doing more to promote good teachers, to promote and give them better raises? >> if we were really serious about social progress in this country, teachers would be paid like lawyers and doctors and we
wouldn't be just peaing lip service to teachers. what we're seeing is a widespread disinfranchisement. >> you see kids who say, i just have a quarter, is that enough to buy a book at the buyer fare and i want to cry. you dig in your pocketbook and give them $10 because you want them to have a book. >> is it racial inequality or -- >> i think they go hand in hand. class in this country has been conflated with race, you know, with brown versus the board of education, race is protected. it's a loop hole. race is protected. the class was never protected. you know black people and brown people are poor in this country. you say race doesn't happen. you know they tear poor and you don't have to serve that part of it. you think it's a given kids should go to school and get an education wherever they live. >> it's not an environment a kid should be raised in. it's not a pretty good safe
environmental. >> what is the solution? that the idea, again, that we were -- you know, a lot of people said, oh, we're not racist. now we're at a point where you can't say, i'm not racist. you have to say i'm anti-racist. for me it's going to come back to those students from the little rock nine who were teenagers who showed such unbelievable courage. >> such important film and the film is available on netflix today. you talk about hypersegregated schools. the average income is $15,000 versus $50,000 in the more integrated schools. it started at a young age and affected children so greatly. >> ava duvernay is on a roll. >> sonia said she won the lottery. >> i think she's right. thanks, bianna. fans of the big bang theory
leonard does? >> all right. leonard is attempting to learn why sub atomic particles move the way they do. >> really? that's it? that doesn't sound so complicated. >> it's not. that's why leonard does it. >> that is a beloved and brutally honest sheldon from "the big bang theory." now he's also behind the camera's executive producer and narrator of a new show. it's called "young sheldon." the series introduces us to the eccentric scientist as a child. iain armitage stars as the boy genius. in the prequel 9-year-old sheldon goes on his first day of high school. >> oh, dear. >> yeah. >> that boy has an exposed tattoo. >> he does. >> i wonder if he knows that's
in violation of the dress code. >> speaking of which, how about we lose the bow tie? >> why? >> look around, honey. known else is wearing one. >> perhaps i'll start a fad. >> no, you won't. please trust mommy. i'm tell you what. you take it off and this weekend i'll take you to radioshack. >> the kid wants to go to radioshack. we're pleased to welcome jim parsons and iain armitage. what were you going to say, iain? >> i was going to say you asked me to think of three words i thought were funny, three lines. >> from the pilot. go ahead. >> actually i have four. >> thank goodness. >> give me four. go ahead. >> first of all. that girl's blouse is diaphanous, which means i can see her brassiere. second of all we have, mom, when should i be expecting my test
tackles, your favorite one. >> yes, that is my france. >> third. perhaps i'll start a fad. >> we saw that one. >> and fourth -- let me think -- >> we'll go to jim and you think. >> i had it in my head. >> jim, this was your idea. you said wouldn't it be fun to show sheldon before? why did you think you were on to something? >> the first thing we were trying to think of, me and my production company, anything we could take a show about. we were going with my nephew who was 10. he's 11 now in texas. he's very smart. i thought, this is describing a young sheldon. i checked in with chuck first of all. >> chuck lorre. >> i thought if he has any interest, i should talk to him about it. i thought, they would have thought of it before. they've been building it for a decade, anecdote after anecdote.
but they jumped at it. and what they even done with it is really miraculous in my opinion. it's its own show, its own memory play, origin show. what were you going to say? >> i love how you don't refer to yourself as old sheldon. >> what do i call myself? >> big sheldon. >> big sheldon. >> it would make sense -- >> that's the nicest thing i'll say about myself, just big, not old. >> also thought of the fourth one. i think, monkey, think. >> iain, what did you -- you started "big little lies" a lot of people know of you, but what did you think when you got this character? >> oh, my goodness. i was so happy and excited that it was like i was just -- it came sort of as a total shock because i thought, oh, yay, i get to do another audition.
i was at my grandma's over christmas, i had just barely mem orrized it, and i was just like -- my mom filming it was probably the best thing about it. like -- and then i got a call back, so i was like, oh, that's pretty good. so i went in, i did it, and now -- i met mr. jim. >> who's responsible for you being an actor? you or your mom? >> well, you see, it doesn't exactly run in the family because my mom's not an actress, but my dad is an actor. >> you just saw him this weekend. >> yes, i didn't i saw him in "hamilton." the only difference is he's a theater actor and i act in tv shows. i did actually do a thing, it was called "millions." i'm blanking. a workshop. >> this is the thing that's so cool about this role, jim. for iain's character, you're not
putting sheldon's words in his mouth. >> no. it really is its own character in the same way that -- what you're seeing is sheldon how he became what we see in the adult show, and so this is kind of its own creature that he's portraying here, and there are overlaps, but there are also -- we watch him discover things like comic books and his clothes are going to change style as he goes through this. i don't know. it's like all the things that you associate with sheldon now, you see how they got there through him. >> yeah. >> and what's it like, jim? because we're used to seeing you in front of the camera to now have this additional role as a producer? >> i'm very mediocre at it. i'm very mediocre. >> that's what they say about you, jim. >> not true. >> that's not true, is it? >> not true. >> it's very strange and it's taken a lot to get used to even
talking to another actor, in this case, iain. >> giving direction? >> sort of. i'm not comfortable in giving another direction. i don't want to break it or him. but he's -- iain's -- >> i'm not that fragile. i'm fragile but not that fragile. >> flexible and resilient. >> pliable. >> goodian. but iain's so easy to talk to. >> this takes place in 1989. and you were not alive in 1989. >> i was not alive. >> we were all alive. what were some of the funny things you learned from the '80s about doing the show? >> first of all, the clothing sort of took me by surprise because you have a lot of things that would be considered totally outdated and really weird today, and stuff like that -- that no
cell phones. >> yeah. no cell phones. there are these huge thing, whatever they are. >> and "big bang's" coming backham you ended up proposing. >> that's right. >> did she say yes? >> you'll find out tonight. >> you got married. >> i did. >> what did it take for you to become honest people or honest men, you and ted? it took a long time? >> i thought when we first got together we knew it was a real thing it was long lasting and marriage wasn't a possibility. we went on for so long we thought, we're happy. then we said, what the hell, let's have a party. >> congratulations sth thank you very much. >> have a great show. >> jim parsons and iain armitage. you can see this. children pick up everybody, jim.
