more that we can do to prevent infections. are all the health care workers washing their hands? is the environment clean? are the various pieces of equipment being changed as they should be? very, very important point. infection prevention is really at the foundation of preventing antibiotic resistance. >> let's talk about some of the areas where there has been -- this has been a problem. farming is an issue where we give antibiotics to the flocks or the herds to make sure that what we're getting the most out of food how much does that contribute? how much of this is antibiotic misuse or doctors who are prescribing things or patients not using their antibiotics correctly? >> overuse and misuse of antibiotics whether in health care, with doctors or on the farm with animals is the major driver of antibiotic resistance, and there are many strategies that we're using in health care to improve antibiotic use.
3:31 am
right conditions. >> not to mention that people a lot of times don't finish their dosages. >> right. >> so you may not be feeling sick, but you haven't killed the bug. >> right, right. >> people and patients themselves have a really important role in playing in improving antibiotic use. you know, first of all, you want to realize that taking an antibiotic is not a risk-free thing to do. there are side effects from antibiotics, and make sure and talk to your doctor to make sure that you really antibiotic that's being proposed. we've done some studies recently that suggest that the 47 million unnecessary antibiotic prescriptions are given every year in the united states. >> wow. >> and then if in fact you do need the antibiotic, you're right. it's very important to take the antibiotic as prescribed, and even if you're feeling a little bit better you should finish the antibiotic, according to how the doctor tells you to take it. >> we keep talking about how the germs have continued to evolve.
3:32 am
years. why is that? >> you know, it's a very complicated question is why there are not the number of antibiotics in the pipeline that we would hope. things are improving a little bit there, and there are some of antibiotics that are currently being developed and new policies and new strategies and for not only antibiotics but other kinds of products that might help to prevent infections and resistant infections in the first place, so there are some things being developed. we have a lot more to do in that area. importantly though as we've been talking about these bacteria are going to keep changing, and so they are going to keep developing ways to -- to develop resistance against even the new antibiotics, and so that's why prevention is such an important component of fighting antibiotic resistance. >> great. dr. bell, i want to thank you very much for your time today. >> sure. it's really been a pleasure talking with you. >> thank you. again, beth bell from the cdc. now, here's a look at what's

new week "on the money." america's economy is a little stronger than last thought. the final reading of last quart r gross domestic product came in above the briefing reading 16.1%. the gdp is the broadest measure of the u.s. scope and economy. investors and u.s. businesses were in part responsible for the number. the dow swung triple digits every day by thursday, two up and two down and falling nearly 200 points later in the week on deutsche bank. that's a large european bank. the nasdaq and the s&p 500 pretty much followed suits. stocks were higher though on friday. pending home sales fell in august to their lowest level since january. those are contracts to buy previously owned homes, and that decline largely came because there just aren't enough homes to sell. tight inventory is an issue across all parts of the housing market, and it's not exactly a swan song, but the production. once iconic blackberry

if you've ever taken an uber, you know that your rating for your driver is important, but what if there was no driver the next time you order a car. well, that is what some users in pittsburgh are finding out where the ride-sharing giant is testing out autonomous driving cars. phil lebeau has more. >> is this the future of
3:37 am
that's why it's operating a handful of self-driving cars in pittsburgh. >> i think the public is going to be delighted. i expect that there's going to be kind of an interesting experience, you know. you call an uber and are used to a specific experience, and now you have kind of the future coming to you a little bit early. >> customers who order an uniner this city will be offered a chance to ride in a self-driving car for free. uber will have a driver and engineer in the front seat monitoring the car's performance and standing by to t something goes wrong. meanwhile, there's a jean in the back seat so customers can track their ride and see what the car sees. like other autonomous-drive vehicles, the uber autonomous drive vehicle lets you know or the driver know when the car is ready to take over. hit this button, and now the car will control itself, and we're going to turn at this intersection here. that was the car entirely.
3:38 am
xe-90s with 20 cameras and 7 lasers when the company already dominates the ride-share business in the u.s. by paying real people to drive their own cars? because several automakers and tech firms are testing or plan to roll out their own self-driving ride share programs, so when the day comes that autonomous drive cars start to take off, uber will have a fleet ready to roll. >> there's a within uber to drive these first to market because the -- the business opportunity is pretty strong for them. >> reporter: but are people in pittsburgh ready for self-driven uber cars? >> i would definitely feel comfortable riding in a self-driving car. i trust it over human drivers. i just took an uber, and they were asking me if i would take one and i said no. >> i don't think the average person would be okay with no one behind the wheel, you know what
3:39 am
something good for the city. >> reporter: pittsburgh will soon find out if these strange-looking cars become a normal part of getting around the steel city. for now, pittsburgh is the only place where you can get in an uber driverless car or autonomous drive vehicle and eventually they expect to continue to develop this autonomous drive program and expand into other cities. >> how long for those of us not li actually see this, phil? >> reporter: a while and further out into the future, probably well into the next decade before you see an uber pull up to your place and there's no driver behind the steering wheel and you get in and you drive off. >> so you drove that car like i would. you never really took your hands too far away from the wheel. you were a little nervous, weren't you? >> you're not supposed to. >> you did more than the actual uber guy sitting there who was just a passenger. >> it takes a while to get used to. eventually you become more
3:40 am
a couple of times that we saw vehicles cut in front of us, called a pittsburgh left, very common in pittsburgh where people don't wait. no, i'm serious and will h that happen a couple of times. the vehicle stopped us, but you're there to grab that wheel just in case. >> i don't know. i'm still skeptical. like the guy who said i don't know if most people would feel comfort basketball this. >> you're not alone. >> glad to see you driving the way i was. good job. phil, thank you. up next still swing? it's been a year since the chip card was introduced, so why is it taking so long for everybody to get on board? and later, you can drive my

one year ago credit and debit cards that are embedded with computer chips came to the united states. those chip cards are supposed to make shopping safer, but they have hardly made it easier. got complaints of long wait this point only a third of merchants are actually chip card ready which raises the question has this really helped fight against frau right now is financial journalist stacey tisdale and thanks for joining us. >> it's a pleasure, becky. >> we know that the chip card technology isn't new. it's been in europe for a long time. why did it take so long for us to adopt it? >> i think in the united states there wasn't a sense of urgency because we have really good
3:44 am
happen until the target breach in 2013. >> right. >> hand that's when the chip card associations really took the lead and created the rules of the game before the government could come in and regulate it. >> it's supposed to be the chip card technology that prevents the fraud. how does it work and why is it better? >> every one of your purchases, there's a unique code. it's like you get a new code every time you buy something and the mag stripes when you swipe, those can be duplicated your vvc code, your expiration date and technology can be lifted and that's not the case with the chip cards. it's very cool. >> it is better at doing this, but there's been a lot of complaints for consumers. one of them. stuck in the lines and you feel like it's taking forever. are we imagining it's taking longer for these cards to be used? >> glad you just got stuck because i've lost cards twice. i would say the average

seconds and stuff. i think a lot of the technology has improved and visa is coming out with something that will make it take just a few seconds. quick check. a lot of it was human behavior. when the things were new, we were fumbling around with them. the cashier would be like can you put that in again, can you do that again, can you swib again so we're getting used to it, too. >> it's a learning curve. i admit, operator error on some of these issues. i know the chip cards a used for both credit cards and debit cards and you see the credit card is better. if this is so much safer why do i need to worry aboutow debit card? >> if your money gets stolen that money is on your account right away. you can't use it for other expenses and can throw things in turmoil and there's a rigorous process. can take up to two weeks to get your money back.

your p.i.n. number on any of these places because if it gets picked up there. i had $1,800 out of my account once. >> never use it again. >> hard to get back. a credit card it would have been a phone call. i have these fraudulent charges. >> thanks so much for coming in. >> pleasure, thanks. >> up next "on the money," a look at the news for the week ahead. >> and how a few small tweaks to toys can make a big difference in the lives of some spe kids. >> it's a game changer for the kids. >> go baby go. >> i can get over 60 sheets of dry wall into my mercedes-benz mattress. the (new) mercedes-benz metris worker. hauls more. stows more. and, at $25,995, saves more. add a low overall cost of ownership, and the metris worker can handle any business. starting at $25,995. mercedes-benz. vans. born to run.

almost always on my mind. thinking about what to avoid, where to go... and how to deal with my uc. to me, that was normal. until i talked to my doctor. she told me that humira helps people like me get uc under control and keep it under control when certain medications haven't worked well enough. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. raise your expectations. ask your gastroenterologist about humira.

disabilities often have a very different toy story and are often on the outside looking in and can't access or use toys like most guys and that's why go baby go is helping kids mobilize. >> reporter: kads playing with toy cars may not seem like anything out of the ordinary. >> go baby go. >> reporter: but for most of these kids and their parents it's extraordinary. for some it represents the first time they will be able t 6-year-old paxton. >> my hope is that they will be able to adapt it so that he can be able to -- with his limitations in mobility be able to get around. >> reporter: that opportunity comes because of this man. dr. cole galloway and his go baby go project. he takes kids' toys like these power wheels jeeps and then rebuilds them in a way that even kids with the most severe mobility issues can use. >> yes! >> reporter: we make either
3:51 am
you sit stably and let you dry and/or electrical modifications where we give you big switch where even if you can't moving anything but your head we'll put it behind you and you will see on their faces what their brain is going through which is hell, yes. yes, yes, yes, i want more of this. >> reporter: these workshops are held in cities across the country teach parents how to modify distinct toys and helping them to create vehicles for their child's specific mobility needs. it's a of the center for medical rehab research at the national institute of health is getting behind as well. >> what he's trying to do is help children with these disabilities interact with their world so it's a game-changer for these kids because he rigs them in such a way that kids with problems using them with the way you usually use them could use them so can you have children lean back so it's both therapeutic and strengthens their torso and also they can control a car. >> and yet another game-changer.
3:52 am
fisher-price, parent company mattel is actually encouraging cole to continue to do this. >> about two and a half years ago i got a call from fisher-price, and my first thought was, all right, this has been cool. this is the cease and desist. stop hacking our car. >> reporter: what he found though was quite the onit. >> we donate vehicles to cole when we can including a lot of our jeeps and platforms that work best for what he does to these vehicles. cole also will make suggestions to us during our design process, and if there' opportunity for us to basically work in some of cole's insight into the design of our product we do that, and what that does is allow him to make modifications down the road that would more benefit these children. >> ever since he was born we've been trying to figure out ways to make his life as best as it can be, and so this is a great opportunity. >> people have told you about your child and what your child can't do. today it's only about what your
3:53 am
[ applause ] >> reporter: one of the go baby go requirements is that the vehicles are always free for families. other businesses and oralizations support their local go baby go chapters in order to keep cars free. >> i love this story, dina. so amazing. how did cole first get involved with doing this? >> reporter: >> he did a stud we robotics and saw how it created a bump in cognition for kids with mobility issues, right, mobile robotics and took that and thought about what about creating something that, again, looks like everything else. he's literally rigging the cars and taking them apart and what's also interesting is that it helps with their rehabilitation. in a physical therapy setting it's hard enough to get an adult to get them to do what you want them to do. it's not pleasurable. >> the kids must love this. >> the kids love it because the physical therapists are getting what they want the kids to do. they are getting them to do it and they are having so much fun in the proses. >> if you want to check it out. i guess you can google go baby
3:54 am
and sign up and figure up how to modify your own car. dina, thanks so much. that's the show for today. i'm becky quick. thanks so much for joining us. next week, ordering your lunch by touch screen make fast food faster or cost jobs? each week keep it right here "on the money." have a great one, and i'll see

we already mentioned iowa's deluge of rain last week. it sparked john's commentary this week. as you can see, we are adding more drainage to our farm. my experience on our heavy soils is drainage pays back in a big way, but not all that fast. just like most of my career was dependent on drainage installed over a century ago, somebody decades from now will benefit from this work. the recent downpours in iowa reinforce my worry that big rain events will affect all the corn belt more often, but on our farm wet years have a disproportionately large negative impact. the problem is the considerable initial cost.
3:57 am
ummet, fewer owners and operators will be able to make this type of investment. that said, i don't think there has been a moment in my career when any needed investment looked like a bargain. there is another issue as well. system drainage like we're installing changes how our farm adds to nutrient runoff. environmentally, it works both ways. well drained soil can absorb and more slowly release runoff water after a big rain by acting more like a sponge than a parking lot. our hope is we will decrease our soil losses this way, which in turn directly determines the amount of phosphate that leaves the farm. on the other hand, better drainage can make our farm more sensitive to nitrogen runoff if the timing and nature
3:58 am
act as mini-wetlands to delay and decrease the nitrogen entering watersheds. there is research underway to try to balance these two objectives. cultural practices like cover crops and split applications seem to help but don't currently look like the whole answer. if i had to guess, i would say aaron may be working with neighbors to create man-made wetlands at our tile outlets in the future in order to preserve downstream water quality. with larger and more frequent rain events, drainage will become a bigger farming headache for more farmers. at the same time, we cannot ignore our obligations to those downstream. thanks, john. we've all heard where trump stands on

agriculture is making their case for why trade talk needs action. it's a battle made famous by a popular song in the 1950s. and could autonomous equipment cause the fall of family farms? that's customer support. now for the headlines, 2016 net farm income could top what illinois farmers saw in 2015. the university of illinois rleasing their updated 2016 outlook this week. record-setting yields many are seeing, that could lead to higher soybean returns. and when you take into consideration that non land costs and cash rents have fallen, the econmists think the higher soybean returns could cause improved net farm incomes this year. but the u of i economists warn that crop budgtes suggest very low returns and net incomes in 2017. iowa farmland values are on the decline. a new survey from the iowa chapter of realtors land

around 6 thousand 486 dollars. that's an 8 point 7 percent drop from september of last year, and a 25 percent decline from the peak in 2013. landowner editor mike walsten expects that rapid decline in iowa to slow this year.

migration, saying there can be no exceptions. < we will work with famrer sand rancehrs to make sure we have hte best possible process in place that satisfies both the notion of having a useable and workable workforce in this country, at the same time people are here legally, so we can establish the rule of law in this country> and on the topic of epa overreach, clovis says the trump campaign plans to appoint a farmer or rancher as head of hte environmental protection agency. agency will take a look at the rules written in the last 5 years, immediately eliminating 20 percent of those. more than half a million farmers can now join the lawsuit against syngenta after a kansas federal judge says the class action lawsuit against the company may move forward. the plaintiffs allege syngenta prematurely sold its agrisure viptera and duracade corn products leading china to stop importing the corn. which in turn caused

news...meteorologist mike hoffman joins us again, this week with his 90 day. mike, how's moisture looking. thanks, tyne, as you'll see in my outlook for the next ninety days some northern areas i'm still expecting above normal precipitation southern sections least parts of the area expected to be below a normal now as far as the jet stream that slow moving storm system still in the eastern great lakes and finally gets completely out of here by wednesday as a ridge builds into the northeast look at that, another cut off coming into the southwestern plains south eastern rockies and as we head through the week our model is showing that kind of cutting off into the southern mississippi valley that will be producing a least some shower activity down that way with a trough farther north it does finally get rid of that then in tennessee a zonal flow was ripples through it as we head into sunday now let's go ninety days or months by month october temperatures above normal in much of the country
4:05 am
well with the northern and central plains near normal then onto december looks like old a rare start to come into the northern plains and the great lakes, as far as precipitation is concerned around the great lakes and the pacific northwest expected to be above normal over the next ninety days time thanks, mike. the leading presidential candidates have made one thing clear-- they aren't in favor of trade deals like the trans pacific partnership. this week, sam clovis told mike adams that tpp isn't transparent, and flooded mention problems with wto compliance. but as i explain in this farm journal report, that's not the popular opinion from agriculture. as the two presidential hopefuls went head to head in their first debate, trade was caught in the middle, the facts are i did say i hoped it would be a good deal but when it was negotiated, which i was not responsible for i concluded it wasn't. i wrote about it
4:06 am
differ on the campaign trail, to many in agriculture, trade is a main lifeline for agricultural goods. and as more products are shipped, american farm bureau says it's haing a direct inpmact on the u-s economy. today, trade may be a buzzword, but for corn growers, it's you look at the world, there's hudnredds of trade agreements and the u.s. is in about 20. and so we have very few trade agreemetns> < we're very focused on tpp. it would be huge for the us pork industry. >
4:07 am
is japan, which is already our fourth largest export market. bu thtere's a lot of room to grow. japan has a lot of high tariffs on a number of products that the u-s specializes in... she says the united states currently faces a 39 percent tax on beef exports to japan. through t-p-p, that would drop to 9 percent. meanwhile, as wheat prices hit a 10 year low, wheat growers say t-p-p could help give prices some life. but it's more than just trade with the 11 other tpp coutnires that's attractive to agriculture.... we need more demand. we have supply, ample supply, we have ample quality supply, we don't have the demand we need. and that's hurting us> today, mexico and central america are the top buyers uf u-s rice. sullivan says if china
4:08 am
monster of a market. teh facts are based on cosnumption rates of rice in china that if the short version, in a 14 day period, they could eat the entire u-s crop> it's more than just rice looking to china to pick up demand.
4:09 am
of pork product a year. that would not compensate for the amount of pork we will have on the market. < at one time we were growing exports by 10 or 20 percent some years. that just isn't happening anymore. > but not everyone in agriculture is a fan of trade, saying it's a double edged sword. we're not exporting any sugar. so for us, we would just assume temper all of these agreemtns and if youw ant to trade somehting with someone lse that's fine, but you could leave us out, we'd be happy with that> sugarbeet growers say they aren't against current trade deals, knowing many areas of ag benefit. but when other countries subsidize production, undercutting the u-s price, that's when groups like sugar and rice say some deals are unjust. we want to create a level playing field and if another country is allowed to subsixize and export, we know that's not fair for our growers next week, we'll tackle another

farm progress show this year, even causing john to cover it in john's world. and it drew a lot of questions and comments from many of you. my comments about autonomous tractors started many of you thinking. these thoughts from paul seehaver in virginia: "interesting report on driverless technology - it would seem inevitable yet concerning. it could hasten the demise of the family farm ... picture larger conglomerates that buy or lease larger tracts of land then have a control room full of tractor operators plowing, planting, and picking - much like a railroad dispatch center - at farms across the nation." thanks for writing - send me an address. this harvest, out on
4:13 am
could impact our own farm. first, i am always suspicious about predictions of doom for family farms. they seem remarkably adaptable, and i think land ownership patterns override many factors pushing greater consolidation. despite fears for my entire career, family farms have slowly gotten bigger, rather than abruptly disappearing. second, autonomous tractors would seem to be most adaptable to large contiguous tracts of land. remember the video showed a wheat field that appeared to be in the part of the country where farmers talk about quarters rather than acres. but this technology is scale-neutral. there is no reason there could not be 150 horsepower autonomous tractors, especially because of the familiar price curve for technology. while the first units may be pricey, recent history suggests a rapid decline as competition and other innovation comes to bear. there
4:14 am
autonomous tractors the land right next to your farm becomes even more valuable to rent or own. autonomous tractors could help multi-county operations less than more compact farms. the uneven demand for labor on grain farms is one of the biggest hurdles for smaller operators. just one modestly-sized autonomous tractor could be more of a competitive breakthrough than a threat. this technology looks to me to be size-neutral or even small-farmer friendly if other electronic advances are any guide. thanks john. and don't forget, if you have questions or comments, you can email john or send us a note on facebook or twitter. when we come back, we have the story about a popular hit from the 1950s. american countryside is nexxt.

om the 1950s. in fact, you can argue it's what made a battle from the 1800s so famous. andrew mccrea tells the story in this week's american countryside. t was december of 1814 and the british were closing in on the city of new orleans, forcing a battle with the young united states. the southern city was a mix of nationalities and loyalties melting pot that might support either nation. that was the challenge facing a now famous general when he arrived to defend the local citizens. andrew jackson gave ing the citizens of new orleans to let go of their cultural differences and to united in a national emergency. and to his surprise and the governors surprise, they did :15) 3:18 on screen: "patricia corral, interpretive park ranger, jean laffite national historical park and preserve jackson assembled a truly multicultural force. free men of color, made up a third of the city's population and were a vital part of his group, along with those of a variety of other backgrounds. (he reached out to
4:18 am
he creek wars and the war of 1812. he reached out to the french and spanish in the city of new orleans and a large irish contingent. and he brought in jean laffite and the barbiary pirates as 1814 turned to 1815, the british assembled south of city, preparing for attack. but if not for a teacher named jimmy driftwood, the average american would perhaps know little about the battle that took place here. in 1936 driftwood wrote a song about the event to help his students learn more about it. johnny horton later recorded it into a hit. "in 1814 we took a little trip, along with colonel jackson, down the mississip." andrew jackson knew the british were on their way north from the gulf of mexico. he picked his spot to make a stand at chalmette plantation just outside the city. (he really liked this spot because it was a narrow spot between the mississippi river right over there and the swamps right over there and he felt if he had this narrow point he could build a
4:19 am
" we fired our guns and the british kept a-comin' there wasn't nigh as many as there was a while ago we fired once more and they began to runnin' on down the mississippi to the gulf of mexico although the americans were outnumbered two to one, jackson's met stood their ground. the battle lasted but two hours and the young nation won the last major battle of the war of 1812. jimmy horton's song hit number 1 in 1959. the details of the battle, put to music, are still catchy lyrics today. ("the briars and the brambles are really something that factored into the battle when you think about the british coming here they didn't expect the landscape or the wetscape to be like it was yeah they ran through the briers and they ran through the brambles and they ran through the bushes where a rabbit couldn't go they ran so fast that the hounds couldn't catch 'em on down the mississippi to the gulf of mexico hile it's not the birthplace of the nation it may just be another beginning in the nation's history. (a lot of historians believe this is the birthplace of the american

and defended the city of new orleans although the event of this batthfield is now more than 2 centuries old, it's still aplace america knows, wehter through our generaol or the gneeral who lead the armed forcues, it's a battle that still resignates with american's today. travelign the countrysid,e i'm andrew mccrea. thanks, andrew. you can hear
