watches until tomorrow. the storm is being blamed for at least one death. >> in the west the cause for concern is the high heat. dangerously hot temperatures are expected again today from new mexico to california and all the way up to seattle. searing winds and high hind are fueling the fiefrmt firefighters try to get a handle on more than a dozen wildfires. meteorologist ed curran of our chicago station of wbbm-tv has the latest. ed, good morning. >> good morning, anthony. we take a look at midday. what's left of cindy is moving up the east coast. this is a cold front sweeping in behind it, bringing in much cooler temperatures for much of the country, while out west we have na heat that you talked about. now, we're concerned about an area of excessive rain stretching through the south where they've already seen too thch rain as cindy came through
a risk for severe storms. a marginal risk to the southeast and also up to the northeast. damaging winds and perhaps an isolated tornado can't be ruled out. but look at the excessive heat that we have all up and down the west here. we have excessive heat that stretches all the way from the south here into nevada and up into the pacific northwest with excessive heat warnings and heat advisories. how hot will it be? 116 in phoenix to as high as 90 in seattle. 98 in portland. anthony? >> meteorologist ed curran from our chicago station wbbm with a very baking country. thanks, ed. the senate could vote as early as next week to vote on the repeal of the obamacare. republican dean heller became the fifth gop senator to declare his opposition. that's enough to singer the measure unless majority l
mitch mcconnell can turn some of them around. president trump supports the bill, but investigations around the white house continue to bog down his errol barnett is at the white house with the latest. good morning. >> good morning. as questions swirl around the investigation, the white house is letting president trump do what he does best, speak for himself. and in an interview friday, the president made clear his opinions on the fbi director he fired and the special counsel he's worried about. >> i don't have any tape and i didn't tape. >> president trump directly denied recording his conversations with former fbi director james comey. the president suggested his may 12th tweet, which first mentioned potential tapes, sent a message to the ousted fbi director. >> when he found out that i did -- you know, that there may be taped out there, whether it's governmental tapes or anything else, and who knows, i think his story may have changed. >> when asked if special counsel ro
himself from the ongoing investigation, the president offered concerns. >> well, he's very, very good friends with comey, which is very bothersome. i can say that the people that have been hired are all hillary clinton supporters. >> lately, mr. trump has been acting as his own spokesperson while white house press briefings have become more restricted. friday's was audio only. >> i don't think the be all and end all is whether it's on television or not. i'd rather sit here and have a very enjoyable conversation with you on issues on a friday afternoon .let the president's comments stand. >> the white house wants more attention paid to its product ifrty, hold ago signing ceremony, showing president trump strengthening accountability measures at the b.a. ask work to go repeal and replace obamacare. but that effort may be in jeopardy as a fifth republican senator announced public oppositiri
senate's current version. >> this bill, this bill is currently in front of the united states senate. not the answer. it's simply not the answer. >> the white house says the president is very supportive of the current bill, that mr. trump is in contact with senate majority leader mitch mcconnell and mr. trump may be in contact with concerned gop members in the next few days to shore up those all important votes. >> time is ticking. thank you. white house. thank you. for the first time the president seems to be acknowledging russian interference in the 2016 election. in a tweet last night he shifted blame onto the obama administration saying it did nothing about the meddling. jeff pe gaze has new details on what exactly the white house did and why the administration officials felt they couldn't do more. >> reporter: by early august, u.s. intelligence had evidence that vladimir putin had approved the operation.
carrying out cyber attacks and had orchestrated stolen e-mails to hurt hillary clinton and help candidate trump. >> wouldn't it be nice if we actually got along with russian. >> reporter: there was a debate how can we punish the russians and not have it appear like we're trying to help hillary. ultima ultimately the administration decided to shore up against further attack rather than have the president public speak out. instead homeland security issued a statement warning obama. >> i felt that the most effective way to ensure that that didn't happen was to talk to him directly and tell him to cut it out. >> reporter: in december the white house announced sanctions and that it had dispelled 35 russian operatives from the u.s. and seized compounds in maryland
cbs news julianna goldman has been following this. >> reporter: when u.s. officials entered the compound, they found a trove of missing and damaging materials that could have been useful in the ongoing investigation. also some of the diplomats were kicked out because they were suspected of election operations. >> reporter: former cia deputy michael morell says it should have been worse. >> the actions by vladimir putin was only a slap on the wrist. they didn't hurt him politically in any way. >> reporter: the obama administration did consider a cyber attack in retaliation. multiple sources say there was no precedent for that and it could have made the situation much worse. for "cbs this morning: saturday," jeff pegues, washington. for more now, we're joined by amber phillips, staff writer for the "washington post." amber, good morning. >> good morning. >> we heard the president say in effect why didn't president obama do mor
election. do these latest reports kind of bolster his claim? >> absolutely. the president has been saying for a while now, you know, as the russian investigation under him intensifies, why aren't we talking about hillary clinton's e-mails or why they didn't cooperate with the fbi, kind of suggesting this stuff. he's just outright saying it. he's outright saying, oh, you think i'm too nice to russia? look at the obamaed a administration. it's kind of i know what i am, but whau are you argument here. >> are we going to look at that? >> it's certainly possible and i say that because the special counsel that the department of justice appointed has wide latitude to investigate whatever he wants under the umbrella of russia. congress in addition to that is running their parallel investigations. they can look at whatever they want too. they don't have p
whatever they want. republicans in congress just last week have already kind of started looking back to the obama years. they're going to be looking at weather obama's attorney general tried to like turn the dial in favor for hillary clinton and the fbi's e-mail investigation. >> this week, amber, we also heard the president effectively in the guessing game over tapes. >> yep. >> saying he didn't have any tapes and he hadn't made any tapes. does that put this all to rest? >> i wouldn't bet on it. two reasons. every time he talks about, oh, there are no tapes, he leaves himself wiggle room where he says maybe there are tapes somewhere, which is kind of a fancy full argument to say maybe someone else was recording the president of the united states in the oval office, but he left himself that argument. secondly, you could argue that that one tweet threatening james comey about tapes has led to this obstruction of justice charge because the way james comey tells
director, he woke up in the mid of the night and he said, don't have tapes but i have memos. testified before congress about the memos and now here we are, the special counsel getting president. >> and president trump suggesting that maybe comey changed what he was going to say based on that idea that there were tapes out there. >> right. he's kind of giving himself credit for that. >> we also saw this week the senate health care bill come out and we hear now there are five republicans not on board. where do we stand with theyed we may see a vote next week? >> i think senate majority leader mitch mcconnell is determined to have a vote next week if the nonpartisan budget office can sort of review the bill and say how many people could lose or gain health care, how much it will cost the federal government. that being said, the vote could fail. this is a real possibility because the magic number here is two. no democrat's going to vote for this, whi
republicans can only afford two defections. right now they have five likely defections, and they're not all just conservative or just >> yeah. >> you have an array of them, like senator dean heller we saw yesterday say he can't support it. >> the house didn't way for the congressional budget office number. the senate will? >> the senate has to. because they want to pass in this in a way that they can avoid any senate democratic filibuster, which you know they would try to filibuster an attempted roll back of obamacare. it's not a repeal. so it's a budget rule called reconciliation that essentially means you have to know how much it's going affect the budget before you can vote on it. >> amber phillip webs thanks so much for being with us this morning. thank you. tomorrow morning on "face the nation," john dickerson's guests will include senator pat toomey and senator bill cassidy, republican of louisiana. >> louisiana congressman steve scalise is out of the intensi
care unit at a washington hospital. he was shot in the hip more than a week ago when a gunman opened fire on republican lawmakers and others practicing for a baseball charity game with democrats. scalise had several surgeries and is getting rehabilitation. he remains in fair condition. one of the other victims, lobbyist matt macca was released from the hospital last night. >> good news on both fronts there. at least 120 people are are reported buried in a massive landslide in southwestern china this morning. huge boulderes and a mass identify earth buried at least 62 homes and a hotel. one mile of road is unpassable. the landslide is blocking more than a mile stretch of a river. a rescue official estimates 282 million cubic feet of earth .rock slid down the mountain, enough to fill 3,000 had olympic of-sized swimming pools. >> wow. police in saudi arabia foiled a suicide bomber plot to grow up

residents ordered to leave this north london high-rise over mounting concerns about exposed gas pipes and combustible exterior siding known as cladding in the uk. >> i had a fire safety check done today. why have they left it to half past 8:00 at night to start getting residents out. where do they think we're going. >> reporter: government officials are scrambling to remove fire hasards in at least ten other buildings in the wake of the gren fel tower that police say the fire may have been fueled by a refrigeratoref. the cladding encases a polyethylene core that's highly flammable. police are looking at why and how it was installed. >> we're looking at every criminal offense from
we are looking at every health and safety and fire safety offenses, and we are looking at every company in the moment involved in the building and refurbushment of grenfell tower. >> one company said they should never be used on buildings in over 32 feet high. but in a statement to reuters, ar conic said they had known the panels would be used in grenfell tower, but it was not its role in decide as what was or was not in compliance with local building regulations. and officials are now dealing with what has grown into a health and safety crisis. one resident who i spoke with who was understandably frustrated was never told when it would be safe for him to return back home. dana. >> jonathan vigliotti in london. thank you, jonathan. ohio prosecutors will decide whether to

time now for "morning rounds." our look at the medical news of the week. no matter wherewhere people work there's also the possibility of a health emergency suddenly occurring but how prepared are we to handle it? ? >> two new commissions looked at the issue. one asked employees from multiple fields about their level of first aid and cpr training. more than 85% thought that this type of training is important to keep the work environment safe, however, 33% said they'd never received 1u67 training from a work environment or any other source. cbs news contributor dr. tara narula is here to tell us more about the survey. good morning. >> good morning, dana. >> so multiple industries when they were looking at this training, what did the results show? >> this is so important because one of the worst things you can feel is that helpless sense that
know what to do. in fact, there are about 10,000 cardiovascular arrests this occur every year in the workplace, so this is really a big gap that can be filled by employers to improve workplace safety. cpr can double or triple survival rates when done effectively. so when they looked across industries, what they found is there are big variations. so education. 63% of the workers in education say they got training from their current employer. that is as opposed to about 19%, for instance n the hospitality and service industry. again, big variations. and also 55% of those who said they got trained, it was not from their current employer. a lot of room for improvement. >> tara, if employers offer that training does the survey say employees would want it? >> they do want it. they felt it would improve their ability to deal with an emergency and not many of them expressed hesitation about getting training. abt
no hesitation and if there were those who did express hesitation, it's because they would have to come to work early or leave late or they felt uncomfortable practicing in front of colleagues or had lack of management support. >> is there a way to get it online? >> you would think online. that would be easier. but the majority want to get it hands-on in a classroom-type setting. one of the other things they found is employees said if their job offered it, they would feel mores toive about their employer and trust them and more likely to stay with them longer hchl is a great opportunity for employers. what you tomato want is something happens that's bad and somebody dies or suffers cardiac arrest and then suddenly something changes. >> we move on to our next topic which is childhood obesity. according to the centers for disease control, from 2011 to 2014 around 17% of
adolescents age 2 to 19 were considered obese. that equates to about 12.7 million children nationwide. >> this week the u.s. preventive services task force released its updated recommendations on screening children for obesity. tara, what did the force recommend? >> they're similar to those in 2010. children 6 and older should be screened for obesity and if found to be obese, the doctors should refer them for comprehensive intensive behavioral interventions and that's been shown to help to improve the maintenance of weight loss. it's so important. we know that 80% of those children who are obese will go on to become obese adults. they're at risk for depression, sleep apnea, card voe caution cue lar issues, teasing, bullying. >> i linked this, so i know very well. when you talk about
interventions, what does that mean? what does that encompass? >> they talked about parents and the child alone and together, supervised settings, educating them on nutrition and diet. reading nutrition labels, which i do with my 5-year-old daughter. she knows how to read the label and limiting screen time, limiting access to tempting foods and goal setting. you know, kids are really sponges. they want to learn, they can learn, and there's no reason we shouldn't be targeting them. this is one of the best tools and skills we can give our kids. it will help them the rest of their life. >> there's no doubt about it. finally we're going to walk into the future. years from now if you ever needed help getting around, it could be from an exoskeleton. research shows a personalized ex-oh skeletal system. it can adapt the way you walk and use the energy you expend. >> wearing it on one ankle reduceer
that i hope in the future this can help improve the mobility for a range of people from those suffering strokes to injured athletes. this is really remarkable. >> it's not just about creating a bionic human but help with those who have had injuries or accidents. what's nice about this is they tailor it to the person. they can cause you to increase your energy expenditure. this works with your body and decreases the amount of energy you're expending. >> great information. dr. tara na rule la, thank you. it's a chance for teens to earn money and gain work experience but the once common summer job is far less common these days. we'll see what's behind the trend. you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday." beyond is a natural pet food that goes beyond assuming ingredients are safe... to knowing they are. going beyond expectations...

rite of passage for american teenagers for almost as long as anyone can remember. but fewer and fewer young people are drawing a paycheck these days. >> according to a study, summer employment of 16 to 19-year-olds fell from 45% in 1986 to 30% last year. for some it's due to the lack of opportunities while others are just choosing to spend their time differently. here to discuss this is lauren lions cole, the "your money" editor for "business insider." good morning. >> good morning. it's two separate things happening right now. kids and parents are proo or advertising getting into the best college they possibly can. that requires doing all kinds of extracurriculars, getting into summer school. then you have older americans transitioning into retirement who want or need to keep working. if you're an employer, those are pretty appealing employees to hi
planner with, lauren. what's the long-term value for kids, you know, having a summer job? >> you know, i work with the smartest people in new york city and some of them went to the very best schools. so i can appreciate going into a good college. but just earning a high salary isn't enough to be financially independent. you really need to understand the value of a dollar ask how to manage your money, how to save your money. having a summer job, working really hard for 50 bucks a day or making minimum wage will teach you those sorts of lessons. >> isn't it more, though, than just financial tools? aren't there other things? i remember learning more than that. >> like how to work with a boss or your coworkers, show up on time. all these sorts of things you can learn in a low stakes environment as a teenager rather than your first job out of college. >> i'm going through this with my daughter and my son. sometimes you get these -- learning, you know, what it takes to make a buck is an extremely valuable thing. and then, you know, how much hours a week it takes to get money you can
>> if you're working before you go to college and then when you're taking out student loans to go to college, you may not understand what $20,000 or $30,000 in student loans means. but if yiek making $50 a day, you'll be a little more cautious before you do that. >> you mentioned in some cases it's people hiring older americans. what about some of the retail closures that we've seen lately, does that have an impact, as well. >> absolutely. the top two industries that teenagers are working in are restaurants and the service industry and second is retail. as we see more and more closure necessary that way, there are just fewer jobs to be had. an older employee who could work year-round would be appealing. >> teenage employment is up slightly from the great recession, but will we ever get back to when it was 46%, do you think? >> there is a lot of hiring happening right now, so of course it's going to on tick up slightly. but we're not going to go back to the days
of teenagers to work in and fold sweaters in. i don't think it will get back to the same level. but for those who can get those jobs, it's a really good way to learn a lot of life lessons. >> we're also seeing internships have taken over some of these spots, too, that used to be jobs that are now internships. >> that's true. i think with internships, you can learn a lot about a specific career path, so there's a lot to be said for that, too. but i would recommend prioritizing a paid internship if you can find one. >> good luck with that. >> good luck for that one. i've been down that road. it's not easy. all right. lauren lions coal. thank you so much for being with us. >> thank you. the tech world took off when steve jobs first showed the iphone. we'll look at the evolution after itself first release. you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday."

hour, damaging weather on both sides of the nation. the remnants of tropical storm cindy were causing big problems overnight from the gulf coast to the midwest. in western pennsylvania, wind and rain sparked flooding and a tornado. the southeast was hit by heavy rain. flood watches are in effect for tomorrow for parts of alabama, mississippi, and florida. >> in utah severe heat and high winds are fuelling a wildfire that's destroyed more than a hundred homes. meteorologist ed curran of our boston station wbbm-tv has the study. good morning, ed. >> we have two stories across the country. first of all we have a cold front sinking down across the country bringing us an area of excessive rain that's seen too much of cindy which is moving up on the east coast, dragging in the cool air behind it that is cooling off this part of the country, whereas, out west we have very, very hot temperatures. there's a chance for severe weather in several spots around
just a marginal chance but damaging wind and isolated tornado can't be ruled out up here in the northeast. look at these temperatures out west. 116 in phoenix today. 98 in portland. 90 zrees in seattle. anthony? >> meteorologist ed curran of our boston station wbbm-tv. thank you, ed. five republican senators say they will not support the bill to overhaul obamacare. on friday dean heller became the most recent to announce his opposition with those five republicans in opposition the bill would not pass in its current form. >> this bill is currently in front of the united states senate. not the answer. it's simply not the answer. i'm announcing today in this forum,ly not support it. >> heller did not rule out backing a version of the bill if changes are made. the senate build could come up for a vote next week. >> let's get more
correspondent for "the new york times." tom, good morning. >> good morning. >> we've had a few days to digest 140 pages. how does this senate bill compare to the house bill? >> in broad strokes it's similar. it ends the requirement that we have cuts. it treefts pre-existing conditions a little differently. that was a big issue in the health bill. having said that generally we're talking about the same kind of approach that we saw in the house. >> five senators are opposed. five republican senators oppose it at this point. what are their objections? >> so it varies a little bit. when the bill came out at first, a group of four senators, mostly conservative, some of the most conservative in the senate came out against it. their big objection at least for most of them is the idea that this bill doesn't go far in uf to repeal obamacare. that's an issue that is kind of tough to resolve because m
repeal all of obamacare. for instance, there are elements there that are popular with consumers. >> and if they go further, they may lose the moderates on the other side. >> exactly. that's sort of the box. you have other people such as dean hellner nevada. that's a state that expanded medicate under the law. more than 200,000 people in nevada have health coverage because of that provision. it's a big political risk for him if he's going to support getting rid of that. >> one of the things they have to get is the cbo score, which the house did not wait for. as far as the senate, do we have any idea what that cbo score might look like? >> it's hard to gain this out in advance, but it's probably going to be somewhat similar just because the bills are somewhat similar. the cbo scores for the house, it was a pretty tough thing to defend. more people who would not have health coverage. we don't really know what the senate report will show, but
questions, how many people would lose coverage. also, premiums. does it bring down premiums. >> they keep saying is it affordable? that's the ultimate question. does it actually do that? >> there are big questions, what would this do to the insurance market. for instance, would people be forced into high-deductible plans? >> so the overall cost ends up being more even though e the premium is less. >> senate majority leader mitch mcconnell wants a vote before the july 4th recess. is he going to be able to get this bill in a position to get the bill to pass in that amount of time? >> there's not a lot of time. right now it would not pass. a lot of things need to be changed. if you make changes to please some of most conservative members, how do you then avoid losing some of the more moderate members, includesing those who have raised concerns such as susan collins in min who could end up being opposed to this who are not out there r
>> there could be more negative scores. >> we'll see what the cbo score says. if it comes back saying 20 million people would be without coverage, that's an issue that the senate has to wait for that scoring. all right. thomas kaplan, thanks so much for being with us. >> thank you. there's a new addition of the los angeles skyline and it comes with bragging rights. the wilshire grand is now the tallest west of the mississippi. >> reporter: from the streets to the spire, the wilshire grand reaches sky-high 73 stories. do you feel like you have bragging rights in downtown los angeles like look at us? >> yeah, we do. >> reporter: chris martin is the architect and development manager. >> built into the skin of this building up the spines are high density l.e.d. lights, so many that if we turn them all on, it will stop traffic. >> reporter: featuring restaurants, retail, and an
