7:57 am
close that those candidates were trying to pick off the reporters. >> it's tied here in iowa which means a victory here could make an improbable bid hard to stop. >> the grand jury does the opposite of what is expecting. >> all three men are facing federal charges. authorities say they could still be in this area and are considering armed and dangerous. >> her physical injuries are well on the mend, but as you can see, the emotional wounds are still very fresh. >> two of them came back and saw us and -- >> it's basically a giant ipad that lets you order your meal exactly as you would like it. >> sausage mcmuffin with cheese and hash browns and you can three in the pancakes too. they're light and fluffy. >> how many points is that on weight watchers?
7:58 am
>> yes, i did check. >> announcer: today's "eye opener" at 8:00 is presented by prudential. i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. the two top presidential democrat is candidates are intensifying their battle for caucuses. the race have very close but a new poll shows hillary clinton with a 14-point nationwide lead over bernie sanders. >> a poll also shows that those between 18 and 24 years old overwhelmingly go for bernie sanders. one young voter asked clinton at the town hall last night why more are not committed to her? >> it feels like a lot of young people like myself who are very passionate supporters of bernie sanders and i don't see the same enthusiasm for younger people for you. in fact, i've heard from quite a few people my age that they think you're dishonest, but i'd
7:59 am
feel the enthusiasm isn't there. >> well, i think it really depends upon who you're seeing and talking to. i'm totally happy to see young people involved in any way. that's what we want. we want to have a good primary to pick a nominee, and then we want to have everybody join together to make sure we win in november, which after all is the purpose of this whole campaign. you have to have somebody who is a proven, proven fighter, somebody who has taken them on and won and kept going and will do that as president. that's why i hope you'll reconsider. >> all right. in new hampshire a voter asked chris christie why he was campaigning instead of managing the storm cleanup in new jersey. he spent the weekend in his home state where there was significant flooding. >> it's already done. >> okay.
8:00 am
>> i have friends, family calling sending me videos, pictures. >> all over the state. >> all over the state. >> there's been one county that's flooded in the state. i don't know what you expect me to do. do you want me to go down there with a mop? >> christie then offered to check personally with the woman's friends and family. we're tracking two cities recovering from the mass ichb blizzard. federal government and schools are still closed three days after the storm while in new york city most cities have returned back to normal. kris van cleave is in washington and david begnaud is in new york to show why there's such a contrast between the two cities. let's start with david. good morning. >> reporter: charlie, good morning.
8:01 am
response of the city. most people are doing this. you wouldn't want to be that guy trying to get out. that's the average for the year and they got it all at once. sleeps. it barely flinches in a blizzard. before there was even a dusting, city officials tapped into the $77.5 million annual snow budget and deployed 579 salt spreaders. at the heart of the storm saturday, new york banned travel and shut down some trains but that didn't stop some new yorkers from finding creative ways to get around. by sunday most main streets were clear, and monday it was back to work with people ignoring the snow and each other as usual. >> i know other cities struggled and a lot of them are not blessed with the kind of public employees, the number and the quality and the highly trained public employees that we have.
8:02 am
tl mayor was talking, here may kris van cleave, anything back to normal there yet? >> reporter: well, it depends on where you are. right here is not back to normal. federal workers are not working today. that's not normal. it's a good thing they're not on the roads because those who are finding it slow going because of the snow removal process. look. there's a lot of snow on the ground but d.c. officials say you have to keep in mind they haven't dealt with this much snow in a single going since 1922. >> when you look at manhattan got more snow than d.c. and they in much quicker order were back to schools in session, roads being clear, is it an unfair comparison? >> it's totally unfair. >> reporter: it's because these two cities couldn't be more dissimilar. d.c. is significantly smaller than the 8.5 million people who live in new york.
8:03 am
big apple's cash. washington, d.c., has a budget of one-twelve of what new york can spend. the metro was closed and people had to find their cars before they could even start digging them out. schools have been closed and novice sledders became capitol ground hazards. but at least one d.c. lawn was clean and its resident politician back at work. >> mr. president what did you think of the snowpocalypse? boston's mayor that's certainly no stranger to snow says he feels bad for the district and offered to send some snow plows. there's some pavement right here but you can't get the car out because of the snow bank here. one thing i can tell you, in april we do get cherry blossoms, gayle. >> all right. we know they're working around the clock.

8:11 am
the cliffs take a beating, and that's left these buildings teetering on the edge. two of the apartment buildings along the cliff have been sitting empty in 2010 when they were deemed dangerously uninhabitable. but since then, four years of drought in california meant few storms and the cliffs remained stable until the storms returned. in 1998, the last big el nino year washed away the cliffs leaving several houses hanging on edge. one collapsed onto the beach below. othered eded had to be torn down. bard willoughby knew where he was living would one day meet the same fate. it was criticized by the building's owner at a city council meeting last night. >> to throw all the residents

8:18 am
will never be out of business. . but were you surprised it's number one? >> these move around. it's really health care in general. this is the year of health care. so all of those health care jobs moved up over the health care jobs. dentist was near the top last year. so it's a horse race, but a minor one in the sense of competition. it really is a whole category of jobs that are moving forward. >> other than health care, what? >> technology. dominant. 60% of the jobs on our list were health care related. technology is the big winner the last five years. it hasn't gone away. it's still there but health care has come up relatively speaking. computer science, information tech, all of those jobs that relate to the digital world. >> if you're a parent looking at this and you want to steer your child into a good paying job, what are one of the things you learn, science, right? >> science and math.

you have to do your math homework. that's one of the things that comes through every single job in the top 20 is science-related. you can't be an occupational therapist without a background in statistics and computers. today. we're taking a look at a longer term horizon. it's not just a job. it's a career? when you do that, what stands out to you? let's go bath to math. they want you to think math and science is a good thing. >> well, it's important. it's the building block. you have to say it. it doesn't have to necessarily be calculus. but algebra 2 is critical. if you don't take it early in high school, you're in big trouble. every one of these jobs that you point to, you have to have that foundation, that's sort of a separate thing we talk about at u.s. news.
8:20 am
when you look ahead, what do you see? >> you see the jobs that aren't going to be there. one of the reasons these jobs endure is they're hands-on. they're people who need to work with the elderly, which is going to be a booming population. >> your best paying cities. >> the best paying cities are the most expensive cities. they relate to the technology. >> and the best paying jobs. >> you say san jose and san francisco. >> right. >> best paying jobs? >> surgeon is the best paying. anesthesiologist is number one, surgeon, dental surgeon. all of those are right up the top and next down would be the jobs. >> brian kelly, thank you so much. >> learn to code. >> right. super bowl ads that quench your thirst for entertainment. >> it was one of those commercials that had everything.

8:23 am
right now very mild and feels comfortable for january. already above normal. 39 is the normal. we're at 41. sayville is up to 47. madison just 14, 13 in franklin. so the concern is there's some moisture in the atmosphere. now, just west of our area it's a little bit of freezing rain, drizzle and some snow. it's more of an element of ice. you know it's weakening as it heads our way. there's another secondary impulse a front here but the time that makes it into our area it's warmed up. it's icy north and west but with this system coming in 43 would turn it to rain. another mild day for your wednesday. there's going to be some significant melting the next few days. >> thank you so much. we'll be back with another local update in about 25 minutes. i'm mary calvi.
