8:02 am
would be their feet. we'll come up with a couple of cures if you really hate your feet. i'll not a foot person. >> we'll make them look better. not only that we're tackling the cottage cheese thigh. your cellulite, it's out of here. can you believe it's 50 years since the iconic photo of the beatles on abbey road. there it is. they're barefoot. >> the horror. can you make it? >> the connection. a top story. a positive sign for the nation's troubled economy. for the first time in 15 months the number of people losing their jobs slowed last month. president obama said friday the economy is headed in the right direction. so things are looking up, right? maybe not. more than 14 million people were out of work and some have just stopped looking. anthony mason reports. >> reporter: stocks surged as the unemployment rate dipped. the dow gained 113 points on the
8:03 am
promising job numbers. 240,000 jobs lost in july. still bad news but getting better. >> we're losing jobs at less than half the rate when i took office. >> reporter: more than a third of those unemployed, 5 million people, have been out of work for more than six months. that's a record. >> what industry are you? do you have a copy of your resume? >> reporter: 1,000 people turned out for a job fair in new york this week, sponsored by >> you would be responsible for relocation -- >> reporter: alice was recruiting for a small mortgage company. in the latest survey of job postings on the internet, is beginning to see a turn in some industries. retail, the energy sector and transportation all showed small growth last month. along with government hiring. >> i think we're hitting bottom. we're not bouncing up yet.
8:04 am
that's a little ways in the future. >> reporter: if the trend continues, the economy could begin to create jobs again by the end of the year. anthony mason, cbs news, new york. >> joining us to discuss the better than expected unemployment numbers and their affect on the economy is karen finerman, ceo of metropolin capital and contributor on cnbc's "fast money." people see the uptick and they want to know if the recession is over. >> i don't know if there's one single tiny data point that says the recession is over. i think there's a mosaic definitely building of pieces of data that are positive. you're starting to see manufacturing numbers improve. this is clearly a good number, the employment number. this is one people focus on and gets headlines. the thing that's important about that is that helps so much psychologically. when you hear things are getting better, when you see the unemployment rate actually go down. i think there's so much to the
8:05 am
economy that's psychological. so it is self-fulfilling in some ways. >> that's what i was getting at. people hear these numbers, they see the stock market on the rise, they think, now maybe we're making our move. the president says, the tough part is behind us now. does that play a huge factor in how the economy can make a comeback? >> if you look at where we were when the administration first came in, the financial world was on the edge of absolute collapse. we have solved that. that is really important so that we -- the banking system will not fail now. >> you know, that would -- on the front page of "the times," the economy turns, washington looks good. ben bernanke, timothy geithner, do you think they did the right thing? >> i saw what they did, i saw the financial edge we were on and they came up with this stress test plan and it worked. they addressed the situation and said, we have a plan to
8:06 am
capitalize banks that are undercapitalized. a one-shot plan that this is the way every bank will be dealt with. not the very sort of ad hoc way the prior administration had dealt with things. and they were able to get people to believe, all right, there's a plan here, private capital felt comfortable, coming in, buying bank stocks. that helped to support the banks. they are healthier now. >> let's talk about the unemployment numbers, though, a downtick but could there be an uptick next month? have we turned the corner or could things potentially get worse? >> i think a lot of things happened so that there was a lot of noise in the numbers, the auto sector and that has abated. it could tick up, certainly, but the trend, the rate of decline has dramatically turned. >> 400,000 people who just stopped looking. do we see a reflection in these numbers as well that not exactly what it seems? >> we don't see that in these
8:07 am
numbers. that's the shadow unemployed, if you will. but vb knows about that. economist have had that factored in already, right? so that to then pin the higher number -- the lower number, rather, the better unemployment number, on the idea of, well, you'reot counting everyone who was looking for work, they weren't doing that before anyway. so i think this is a very positive piece of data. >> great. that is the news everybody is waiting to hear and wanted to hear for so long. karen, thank you. erica, over to you now with more of this morning's news. >> i like ending on a positive note there. it is hard to believe but a lot of kids are heading back to school on monday. while parents may be busy shopping for notebooks and pencils, they're also concerned about keeping their kids safe from the h1n1 flu. now we have new recommendations for schools on the virus. joining us to talk about the new guidelines, pediatrician ivana lavigne.
8:08 am
a few changes for parents. the first one, what to do if your child is sick and when to keep them home. >> right. that's a really good question because i think parents need to be educated in order to minimize the spread of h1n1 in the community. if your child has a fever over 100 or if your child is coughing, sneezing, just doesn't feel well, it's a good idea to keep them home until they're fever-free for 24 hours. >> before we were hearing seven days. now we're reducing it to hours and fever-free. >> right. we now have information from what happened in the spring of 2009. we have new guidelines made to minimize the spread of the virus and also enable people to go to school, go to work and really maintain their regular activity. >> which brings up the next piece of information that we're getting, which concerns school closures, which were really tough on a lot of families when they happened last spring. >> that's right. now we know that closing down the schools doesn't really help prevent the spread. we need to really do things that
8:09 am
will. and the things that will is teach children how to wash their hands properly. i tell children to either sing happy birthday twice or the a, b, cs so they get a full washing in. it's important to teach kids to cover their mouths and their noses when they sneeze. not with their hands, but with their sleeve or into a tissue. >> things that make a huge difference. >> in the spread of the infection, absolutely. >> that's part of the prevention. when it comes to the vaccine, there are also new guidelines about who should get the vaccine, but it's not available until october. >> the vaccine is currently in development. it's important people get the regular seasonal influenza vaccine as well as h1n1 vaccine. the target area are those from 6 months to 24 years old. >> can and pregnant women. that and the regular flu vaccine because this particular vaccine does not protect against the regular flu. >> that's exactly right. >> what about if your child end
8:10 am
up with the h1n1 flu, the tamiflu, is it okay to race to your doctor and say, i need tamiflu? >> most i saw was mild and kid got better within a few days. we're deciding whether or not to treat kids with tamiflu, based on underlying conditions, their age, exposure to newborns that are too young to get the vaccine. you have to take the whole picture in perspective. it's so important not to panic. >> doctor, great to have you with us. thanks. chris, over to you with our other top stories. >> thanks. a major victory on the war on terror. pakistan officials tell cbs news that the islamic militant group highest ranking official in the country was killed by a missile strike. while u.s. officials wait for dna confirmation the white house says pakistanis are safe if he is dead. terrorism expert neil
8:11 am
livingstone joins us from washington on what this means. good morning. >> good morning. >> are-s this statement true, is the world a safer place now that massoud dead? >> yes, head of the 13 taliban groups in pakistan, whose vision of what they wanted to do with the country was essentially to force it it back into the eighth century, these were people that burned down women's schools -- girls schools because they didn't feel women deserved an education. they were carrying out attacks that -- against western hototel and were behind the assassination of former prime minister benazir bhutto. >> i want to talk to you about that. how big of a blow is this to taliban? i've heard this is what bin laden is to al qaeda, the death of this man. >> this man was probably more important to the taliban than bin laden is. bin laden is symbolic today and
8:12 am
marginalized. massoud was the operational chief of the taliban. he was directing the war against the pakistani government. and he's going to be very, very hard to replace. >> how big a victory is this for the obama administration, do you think? >> well, i think it's a significant victory for the obama administration. at a time when they've come under attack from republicans as well as some democrats for, perhaps, too weak on the issue of terrorism and having a muddled policy. so i think in this case, the obama administration can take some credit. >> is the taliban the kind of organization -- will they have other leaders that will be ready to step in place and assume the same majt massoud did or will this take a while? i'm trying to figure out how big of a figure head this was and how it disturbed the hierarchy of the taliban. >> massoud is irreplaceable in
8:13 am
the short term. maybe one of his subcommanders can move up and take over that role and eventually have the same amount of power and the same effectiveness. but it's going to take some time. during that period of time, the taliban is going to be very vulnerable and, quite frankly, many of those guys who are next in line have to be wondering, do we really want to take this job if suddenly we're going to be attacked, you know, by a predator someplace. it may be a very short job tenure. >> let me ask about this. you were close with benazir bhutto. what led massoud to mastermind her assassination? >> benazir was western educated, she represented a modern vision of pakistan. she was very pro-western. everything she was massoud hated. and he saw her as probably the most serious enemy to his vision of what pakistan should be. and now, of course, her husband,
8:14 am
preside is in power. i'm sure for him this represent a great measure of closure. >> thank you for your expertise this morning. we do appreciate it. >> thank you. now it's time to turn to david with a look at other stories making headlines. priya, good morning. >> good morning to you. the health care reform debate has taken an ugly turn. north carolina congressman brad miller has receivequote, instigate town halls so they can show up and disrupt them. funerals are scheduled today for the three women gunned down by george sodini at a pittsburgh health club. the services follow a prayer vigil friday. nine others were injured in tuesday's attack when sodini

8:23 am
relatively quickly after you were released from the hospital? were you able to go up to david and say, hey, thanks? >> as soon as i got out of the car in the driveway, i made a beeline for their back deck and thanked them all. gave his father a big hug. >> david, let me ask you, did you get anything for your birthday that stand out? any rewhat ard for a job well d? >> i had a big didn'ter and i got a lot of presents i wanted to. >> did i hear correctly, did you get a puppy? >> on the day of my birthday we ent up to northwestern mass and picked out the puppy we wanted. it's going to come home in the end of august. >> you deserve it. take care of that puppy. take care of yourself, too. thank you for taking the time in joining us. we appreciate it. >> thank you very much. erica, over to you. >> what a great story. quite the kid. we are calling this a weapon of mass reduction. a new cellulite treatment that

money here and there? >> the zoos worked with us on the project. they gave us free admission. the gas prices went down from $4 to $2. but, yeah, that was the big part. we traveled -- i mean, that cut a lot, a few hundred dollars -- thousands of dollars off the budget. >> we didn't buy anything we didn't need. we packed our lunches. zoos, if you have a membership to your local zoo you can get into pretty much every other zoo in the country for 50% off and sometimes free. so it's really a great deal if you're going to travel a lot. >> and just kind of packed everybody in the car and just made it a big old road trip, huh? >> yeah. >> yeah. they've been great. we took them in between holiday breaks, spring break, you know, in between christmas and new year's we went down to florida. as soon as school was over, they hopped off the bus into the van and we headed up to new york. >> let me ask you, kids. did you have a favorite zoo or favorite animal? i'll start with you, olivia. >> i liked the san diego zoo and the st. louis zoo. and i liked giraffes, elephants
8:49 am
and dolphins. >> there you go. >> i liked the st. louis zoo. i like all of the animals. >> yeah. did you have any experiences with the giraffes getting a little too close or the lions getting too close to the car? anything scare you? >> no. >> pretty fearless, huh? >> and the little one over there, did she are a favorite? did you have a favorite animal? >> do you have a favorite animal? >> puffin. >> she likes the puffins. >> no troubles, no aunt edna, no christie brinkley, no red ferrari, anything like that? >> no. one flat tire in texas but we got that taken care of. >> the pictures look great. looks like a wonderful time. thank you very much. >> thank you. >> thank you so much as well. coming up, the son of a pop icon is singing his own tune now. you'll love our "second cup cafe" with crosby loggins coming up next on cbs. take it away, guys. ♪

and cheered by the nation's better than expected unemployment picture, president obama says the economy is headed in the right direction. at the white house friday, mr. obama said, quote, the worst may be behind us. a number of economists agree. now, what the 9.4 unemployment picture doesn't show is the large number of people who have stopped looking for work and no longer consider themselves unemploy unemployed. almost 15 million people were out of work last month. and it was 40 years ago today the beatles were photographed walking across a london street named abbey road. cbs news correspondent elizabeth palmer is in london. where i'm sure a huge crowd is gathering. >> reporter: they've dissipated. the traffic jam was unbelievable. i'm standing on abbey road almost where that famous picture was shot. you can see the crosswalk with

9:07 am
there's weights and pilates mats in the back of the room. it's ununusual for men to grab weights or a mat and exit. after a while he was shuffle through his bag and there was -- we were facing the front of the classroom and then the lights went out. as soon as the lights went out, it was uncommon and our instructor was in the front of the room. i turned to look and that's when i noticed he had two guns in his hand and you could see the fire. from there i just ran glue ran, got down on the floor. i know because of the position you were in, that's short of why -- you were shot on your right side, is that correct? >> yes, that's correct. >> so take us through that moment. all of a sudden you realize there's a man in your class shooting at you. you run for cover. i mean, it must have seemed like that lasted for hours on end. it's probably just a few seconds. >> oh, yeah, it was -- i mean, it was only two minutes the whole ordeal. you know, i ran to the front of the room near the exit. i don't really think i knew i was running toward the emergency exit. but i laid down and i laid on my
9:08 am
stomach. i thought, that's the best way to go, if i'm going to get shot, you know, your back is going to save you more than the front of you. just played dead. i think we all did the same thing. >> were you worried that you wouldn't make it out of that classroom? >> of course. that's what you thought. you know, i couldn't shut my eyes or anything. i had to keep conscience, keep my mind on other things besides the fact that i'm shot to survive. >> had you ever seen this man at your gym before? did he look familiar to you at all? >> no, i never saw him. at the same time, i just usually go to classes and run and keep to myself. it's me and my three friends we do it every week -- or every day. >> you sound -- i have to say, jackquilyne, you sound upbeat. i can't imagine a few days after, shot. i know you have a bullet wound and days of recovery. you're so intent onnen, a victim. >> you can't. he's not around anymore. there's nothing to be scared of.

today in our early line, the parkway tragedy in new york, where a mom drove the wrong way on the parkway killing herself and others. autopsy reports on drug and alcohol in her system and now another probe has begun. >> reporter: from tragic loss to criminal investigation, authorities are looking into the family of diane schuler, what was known about her drinking and drug abuse when she drove the
9:15 am
wrong way on a new york highway that led to the crash that killed eight people, including diane herself, four children in her van and three men in an oncoming suv, her 5-year-old son was the only survivor. toxicology reports found the equivalent of ten shots of vodka in her body. police say she was high on marijuana. her family vigorously denies she abused alcohol. >> she is not an alcoholic. my heart knows something medically had to have happened. >> there's no way she would have jeopardy the children. >> they say she was a diabetic and may have had a stroke. but there was an empty bottle of vodka in the minimummy van. investigators will focus on her husband, daniel schuler. what did he know about the substance abuse and could he have stopped her from the deadly crash? cbs news, new york. >> so our question for this morning's early line, who is legally to blame for the
9:16 am
tragedy? should diane schuler's husband or brother be responsible? joining us in los angeles is lisa bloom, cbs news legal analyst, from washington wendy murphy and author of "injustice for some" and thomas ruskins, the lead investigator for the schuler family. >> good morning. >> good morning. >> we understand y i'm going to start you off. child protective services announced they're looking into daniel schuler here. where does this come from? how does this affect, i guess, this case? >> that's a good question. was he a neglectful parent for allowing his children to get into that car. child protective services has jurisdiction to ask that question. they have a reason to be concerned if, indeed, he knew his wife either was drinking, was drunk, was high at the time she drove away with his children in the car, or that she had a propensity, a problem, if you will, with alcohol and he knew about it.
9:17 am
then he could be held reckless under child protective services standards and potentially lose custody of the remaining 5-year-old child who survived if, indeed, that's the finding they make. >> we did hear daniel say in that piece, he's been saying it all week, his wife was not an alcoholic and he never saw his wife take a drink or be drunk in his presence. >> the lawyers representing the three adults that were killed in the suv that diane schuler's car had hit, they're looking at a civil lawsuit here. do they have a case? >> they certainly have a case against the mother's estate, if there is one. if there's any money in that estate. there may be insurance money from her car insurance. i don't see a case against the husband or against the brother. under american law individuals are not necessarily wrong for the conduct of another unless they contribute to it in some meaningful and significant way. from everything we've heard, mom got in the car at the campsite that morning completely sober. she was sober at about 10:30 a.m. when she went to
9:18 am
mcdonald's. sow sober at 11:30 a.m. when she was on a phone call. if, indeed, she ingested alcohol and drugs it was between 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 a.m. when this crash occurred. it's hard for me to see how the brother or husband would be legally responsible for that. >> wendy, how does the family then have to make this case? daniel schuler was not in the car. by all accounts, did not facilitate this accent in any way. where is this case? what do they have to do? >> we don't know. we need to know more before we can answer the question. we would have to speculate about what he knew or should have known. the fact she could have drank as much as she drank leads me to believe she had a history. if he knew about the history there could be some liability because he was aware she had a drinking problem and he should have prevented her from driving, period. the family, especially through their lawyer, has had this protest too much quality about how she wasn't the type, she never would have done this, there's no way we knew anything. i mean, it's almost too much to
9:19 am
hear what they're saying. so it's raising questions for me. are they covering for what they knew because they're so firm in saying that they knew nothing. >> let's ask tom, he's investigating every aspect of the case for the schuler family. what new evidence have you uncovered? what is her background. we're hearing two different size of the story. the toxicology reports she blew a 1.9 and that doesn't include some alcohol left in her stomach. >> first of all, she didn't blow a 1.9. the tox rolling court comes back from an autopsy and the autopsy is always subject from questioning. as far as wendy's point, she's not an alcoholic. this is not a woman who drank, drank regularly. she was an irregular drinker. had had she drank, she drank half a drink. as far as what lisa said, her leaving the campground, people saw her, her husband kissed her good-bye, kissed the kids good-bye and put her in the car.
9:20 am
at mcdonald the police and us have both verified when she left mcdonald's around 10:30 a.m., she was totally sober. she made a phone call at 11:37, again, seemed sober. she was running a little late, she told her brother she would be home in time for her niece's -- >> dance retitle. >> yeah. that afternoon. >> the problem is the toxicology results. toxicology puts alcohol and thc in her system. marijuana could have been smoked 30 days prior and that test would come back positive. tom, you've got to get around the toxicology. huge amounts of vodka, alcohol in her system at the time of the crash. >> and a broken bottle of vodka in the car. this is a car that daniel drove, too. so whether he knew about that bottle in the car is going to raise liability questions as well. >> well, wendy, again you're incorrect in your statement. daniel didn't drive that car. he drove a separate car.
9:21 am
that's why daniel wasn't with her that day. he drove ahead with the dog in a truck. the car belongs to her brother. so any civil suit, even though i'm not an attorney, would be against that insurance policy or that person. it wasn't -- >> there was a statement made yesterday on behalf of the family that they had a habit of transporting open bottles of vodka back and forth. that was one of the ways they showed responsibility with how they brought alcohol to and from the campsite and back to their home. if he had a habit of that, he might have known he had had an open bottle of booze in the car. the a factor that that will hurt their defense. >> i have to leave it there. thanks to the three of you. thank you to the three of you again this morning for talking about this. >> absolutely. >> have a good day. more to come. this is "the early show" here on cbs. thursday, finally! dinner with the girls tonight. mmm... mexican, or italian? i really want dessert tonight. i better skip breakfast. yep, this is all i need.

9:47 am
much juice, this just gives it a little accent. there it is. >> you're talking about great for the season, too. >> a little fresh pep othper on that? . the meat loaf. i had a restaurant in new york city and i developed this. meat loaf is traditionally meat and pork and we wanted it to be healthy. >> it comes -- it sounds a little heavy. >> but not boring. so we sauteed some onions and mushrooms and put it in the dark meat turkey. it's moister, more flavorful. low in fat, low in cholesterol. you can eat more of it. >> these are your onions, mushrooms. >> we sauteed them in vegetable oil. you want to kind of cook it ahead of time and let them cool. you don't want to put the hot mixture into the cold turkey. this is just like my mom's old recipe. we have a couple of old -- some bread crumbs.

we'll switch. >> i'm kneading here. >> seasoning is very important so you don't want to forget the salt and pepper. >> erica, i'll get awe scoop when you come over. we have a minute left. >> i like to form it into a loaf like this. we're in a restaurant, meat loaf, we have a little presentation to it. underneath i am my own secret, caul fat is a lining but disappears. similar to bacon -- >> looks like webbing. it's incredible. >> you can do that "silence of the lambs" thing. so i've shaped the meatloaf. you want to put it in -- i have three slices of bacon to give it more flavor. >> of course. >> you roll it up in the fat and bay c bacon. make a nice package. i'm from texas we cook slow and low. once you make your package, put it on a baking sheet, put it in the oven at 250 until it's golden brown. this is what it should look like in the end. >> you are a weapon of mass
9:50 am
production. >> now, i have an italian background. i like meatloaf and a little tomato sauce, highlights the ketchup. there's a special twist to it. i heat up my oil first. then i take my onions, carrots, the garlic would be peeled but we're not going to throw it in there. you heat up the oil. then you throw in rosemary and thyme. as the oil heats up, all of that slowly fries. rather than have chunks in your tomato sauce, when you're done, you take the flavored oil and pour it into the tomato sauce. >> look at that. >> you let that sit, simmer, is salt and pepper, for about 20 minutes. all that oil will come up to the top. you skim it off and serve it. we have a finished oil right here. >> looks great. grab a spoon right there, because we need to check your prices here. let's check your prices right now. >> because we need to eat. >> we want to see exactly where you rank with everyone. you get $33.24. does it make it into -- oh, look
