the special olympics and this is how they're getting the word out. welcome to "cbs this morning." charlie rose is off so jeff glor is with us. always good to have you. we we again with a dramatic turning point in the fight against isis. u.s. backed forces are celebrating the defeat of isis in its former strong hold of raqqa. >> there are multiple reports that the city has fallen. fighters from the syrian democratic forces are dancing and they are chanting in the streets. >> losing raqqa is a major blow for isis. the group once called the city its capital. holly williams is inside raqqa with the military and the challenge is still ahead. >> reporter: good morning. from the very heart of raqqa, this place used to be an ordinary traffic circle but then isis turned into a place where they carried out
7:04 am
executions. they posted the evidence of those horrific killings on the internet. now, the circle was retaken by these u.s. backed syrian forces last night and yesterday we witnessed them on the streets of raqqa celebrating. they were in a victorious mood after a full month long battle. it is a bizarre feeling to be here, because during the three plus years that isis was in control of raqqa, if i had somehow made it into isis territory i would almost certainly have been taken captive and very likely killed. now, there are thought to be isis fighters still lurking and building in buildings and in tunnels here in raqqa and it could take months until the city is finally cleared of explosives that were laid by isis. then they will somehow have to find a way to rebuild this shattered city. where there is hardly a building that is unscathed. some buildings like this one over here have been left pulverized by fighting. others like the one behind me have been fen
7:05 am
strikes. nearly all of the residents from raqqa, perhaps all of them have left the city and many are in refugee camps. it is a terrible irony that in order to retake raqqa from isis they've had to destroy it. >> that is ironic, but a very big day there. thank you very much. holly williams reporting. president trump is promising to take action against the opioid epidemic after an investigation by 60 minutes and the washington post. >> i did see the report. we're going to look into the report. we're going to take it very seriously because we're going to have a major announcement probably next week on the drug crisis and on the opioid massive problem. >> mr. trump is expected to declare the opioid epidemic a national emergency next week. the president also said he might consider replacing his drug czar nominee, pennsylvania congressman tom marino. he sponsored a new law that weakened the drug enforcement administration's control over

7:11 am
>> reporter: officials for presidents obama, george w. bush and clinton told cbs all three made call to families of the fallen. the attorney general tweeted stop the damn lying. you're the president. white house press secretary said last night the prt, quote, wasn't criticizing predecessors but stating a fact. sanders said they've used various methods and the point the president was trying to make is not every predecessor called every grieving military family. >> all right. thank you very much. senator john mccain is warning against american isolationism. the arizona republican made the remarks yesterday during his acceptance speech for the liberty award which honors a lifetime of service and sacrifice. former vice president joe biden presented the award in philadelphia. >> to fear the world we've organized and led the three quarters of

7:15 am

7:19 am
ford has been repairing the police cruisers at no cost, but the issues are separate from the complaints in civilian models and are due to modifications of the vehicles after they were purchased like responding emergency lights. responding to the call for recall ford says the company is confident in our current methods for quickly identifying and addressing potential vehicle issues so instead of a recall ford will be sending letters to owners of 2011 to 2014 ford explorers to bring their cars into dealerships for possible repairs. the wifi network in your home may have some dangerous curt problems. ahead the newly discovered flaw that opens almost every wifi

poierful men in television. what made you come forward? >> well, courage is a building process. it's not a light switch that you turn on overnight and i think that's really important especially with this issue because women are labeled drubl makers, the b word and nothing good. they're not believed when they come forward so it takes immense
8:13 am
courage. it's an excruciating choice, but i realized that my career, my american dream of 27 years of hard work was going to come to an end and it wasn't my choice and i decided that i had to speak up. if i didn't, who was going to do it and i didn't want my children to face the same indignities that i had faced. >> you also say that many women -- any woman who has spoken up and it's not just tv news, you said it crosses all kinds of businesses where there is an issue, but you point out in your book that any woman who has spoken up is no longer in her chosen career. i thought that was very interesting and surprising. >> isn't that shocking and horrifyi horrifying? it's an equal opportunity epidemic. i started hearing from thousands of women and they were waitresses, they were bankers, teachers, flight attendants, many of whom have thanked me over the last year because they have all faced this pervasive issue. this is a silent epidemic in our country. >> but the perpetrators are still in place. >> bau

culture to silence the victims either with settlements where you're gagged from ever saying what happened to you or enforced arbitration which is a part of employment contracts now and here's the key, it's secret. so these are the ways in which we've chosen to resolve sexual harassment in our country and we need to understand that. >> explain that for those of us that don't know about these arbitrations. >> so contracts now a clause that means that you're giving up your 7th amendment right when you sign it to go to an open jury process. listen, when we start new jobs none of us expect to get into disputes. i know i didn't, but if you do it's going to be resolved through arbitration but here's the key. it's secret. you can never tell anyone what you're doing. no one will ever know about it. 20% of the time only the employee wins that much. >> you say silence is the most powerful weapon of the harasser. >> guess what happens then? the woman gets fired. she never goes back to her
8:15 am
is left in the work place to continue harassing. >> which is the case with your settlement. >> the case with my settlement is that i can continue to talk about this issue which i've been doing so much work on it for 15 months. i just can't dell you the nitty-gritty details but you can look at it online what my complaint is. >> when you spoke out some of your colleagues publicly doubted your stories and they defended roger ales at the time. this guy is doing 8 million things a day. you really think he's chasing her around? i know you can't speak about specifics but were you prepared for the reaction from even women that you worked with? >> yes. >> you were? >> yes. because look at how we react when women have the courage to come forward. we need to change this and we are. look at what's happening with the harvey weinstein story. >> you call that a tipping point. you call that a watershed moment. why? >> because women are putting their names and their f
8:16 am
it's not just anonymity anymore. i really believe it's horrifying as those revelations were that i'm optimistic that the hard work i've been doing for the last 15 months is paying off and the gift of courage is contagio contagious. it passes along one woman at a time and look where we are. the #metoo trending for the last two days and now men are putting out their own hash tags to say, they want to be on board. and we need men to help us. >> that -- that is very important that they're part of this conversation. there's a great article in the hollywood reporter by crista vernoff. she said this entire culture is come police sit. we make this all about harvey we've already lost and i've heard many people say we're focusing on that but please look at the bigger picture of what is happening in all industries. do you agree with that? >> i agree with that because the thousands of women who reached out to me, those stories were r
8:17 am
for them in being able to publicly tell my story. i hope all those women will find the courage to also tell their stories and that we will tell them for them to eradicate this problem. >> what are the places in the work place to tell your stories, human resources. but in the book you say they're like the kgb. >> my lawyer actually called them that and i want to reach out to all the human resource people who do want to help. but i advocate in the book that there are maybe better ways to solve this issue. hire an independent person who's not getting their paycheck from possibly the harasser and also, we need to encourage more bystander strainintraining. >> do you think for the 30 years going on with the allegations of harvey weinstein and other stories, people knew about it. there were enablers and the company covered it up. we need
8:18 am
to also come forward. >> i've heard people say we knew he might have been a brute or a bully when it came about his movies. we might have known he was a philanderer but we didn't know that. i've heard many people say we didn't know it was that extreme. >> i'm sure that other people knew that. i'm sure that they did because this is the way in which it works and this is how we cover it up. >> you watched when the billy bush cape tape came out during the campaign. you watched this with your kids. >> the first time i didn't watch it with my kids. i felt it was imperative that i showed my 12 and 14-year-old kids that this is not how you treat human beings and i think it was a teaching moment for millions of parents across america. at least i hope it was that they could show their children that this is not how you respect women because look, its starts with our kids young. this is why i have an entire
8:19 am
should parent our kids in an equal fashion because it's really more about our sons. how are we raising them? to respect women when they eventually get into the work place and that video tape, i don't care what your politics are, sexual harassment is apolitical and everyone should care about it. they don't say are you a republican or a democrat? they just do it. and this is why we should all care about it and human decency supersedes any policy in my mind. >> you went through a rough time. was it all worth it when you look back at it? you didn't hear from people you expected to hear from. you felt alone many times. as you sit here today, was it all worth it iffer you to go through this sf. >> it was, gayle, because if there's one constant thing about me, i always take on a challenge head on and i never give up. and i know that i have been a voice for so many women who never had one. and now i'm seeing that something good is

maybe even more valuable than gold sitting underneath the homes and streets. the gaping hole in the middle of lead, south dakota is a reminder of the golden age that the mayor can't ignore. >> when we look at this enormous hole in the ground, what story does that tell us about lead? >> well, this is what -- what you can see from the mining activity for 130 years. there's 300 miles of underground workings down there. >> reporter: the home state gold mine was the largest and deepest gold mine in north america producing more than 40 million ounces of gold. at its peak it employed 2,200 people and supported a vibrant community with virtually no unemployment. >> the guys put a little heater on their deck. >> the city commissioner was a geologist. >> lead was the economic engine of south dakota. these arehe

salaries in south dakota. we drove all of the economy in the local area. gold was booming 44 years ago. when cbs last visited the mine in lead. but after years of increasing production costs and declining prices, the mine shut down in the early 2,000s. hundreds of people lost their jobs. including luke scott. >> so when you heard home stake was closing, how did you process that? >> it's pretty hard to process that. i mean, it was -- it was tough. because then you got to try to find another job, you know, but there isn't a lot of jobs for miners in this area. >> another mining town with a shutdown mine. lead could have taken a dive. but it
8:35 am
taking a dive. nearly a mile beneath the surface. after suiting up in protective clothes, boots and hard hats, we crowded into an elevator like cage. and descended 4,850 feet below the surface. along for the ride, david and luke scott who both got new jobs at the old mine. >> in this country, when the good jobs go away in a place like a mine, they usually don't come back. >> yep, it's very lucky. i'm just fortunate that i get to come back here and do what i like to do. i like to be underground. >> reporter: here a new kind of mining is taking place in the deepest clean room in the world. where once again, we changed. this time into special sterile

suits. to see where a team of world class scientists mining for the secrets of the universe. >> it's not enough to just glove up. if you're going to work in here, you've got to actually then go through these rubber arms? >> yes, and then put another pair of gloves on. >> gloves on top of the gloves? >> yes, gloves on top of the gloves. >> welcome to the sanford underground research facility, so far under the earth that all the radiation and noise from the sun is filters out, creating a place where researchers can work in an ultrapure environment. here a chemist grows the world's purest copper to use in experiments. >> in this room you are wrestling with the most fundamental questions of humanity. >> correct. of why matter exists in the universe. if at the time of the
8:37 am
you had equal knots of matter and anti matter they should have met and annihilated each other, so why are we here? >> rather than shrinking, lead is now growing. all on account of some masterful repurposing. >> the next stage of the underground lab, exploring these concepts will be conducted here where we're heading. >> exactly. >> over the next decade a new billion dollar international physics project will be built half a mile from the first lab. in another part of the old home stakes mine. >> the next phase of this cutting edge research will actually unfold on the other side. >> correct. >> just about 200 feet away. >> reporter: and another influx of scientists and visitors will be expected in lead, which is still trying to fill empty store fronts and revive
8:38 am
>> we hope that this starts to become a business district again around science. home stake was here for a long time. they provided jobs, security, the lab is going to be here for a long time. there already jobs, there already security. what those jobs are, i don't know. >> but there's still some gold in these hills. >> yes. >> reporter: now, scientists just knew home stake would be perfect for this kind of research because half a century ago, a chemist named ray davis convinced the mine owners to let him build a small lab underground and the work he did there later won him a nobel prize. >> fascinating stuff. >> glad to be back up here though. >> you didn't feel claustrophobic down there? >> a little bit but i knew i was coming back

8:45 am
shoouser. >> it's so great to see the history that crosses all genres but let's talk about leonardo because you describe him as a man of eye catching brewteauty a genius, but a different kind of genius. >> a wonderful drawing. you said that was his self-portrait. >> it fits his description totally and it is an icon of connecting art and science. this is a drawing in which you get every proportion exactly right. 230 measurements to get it right but he also does something of unnecessary beauty as he's standing there naked in the earth and in the universe figuring how do we fit in. >> how is this genius different from other geniuses though? >> some people like mozart say great genius but in a particular field. what's interesting is when you can cross
8:46 am
engineer, a scientist, somebody who loved geology. his notebooks are filled with all of his love of math and science and nature, but also art. and so i think real creativity comes when you can see the cross currents of nature as opposed to getting all siloed. >> testifies an expert in so many things and yet he had no formal education. >> i think it was lucky he was lucky to be out of wedlock which meant he couldn't go to the university so he became a self-taught person. he became a disciple of experiments and experience. this is the beginning of the scientific method in a way where people say well, let me test the wisdom i've been given. so the printing press comes about and he just reads everything and he's a person in history, he wanted to know the most about everything you could possibly know. >> it's the method in some ways, but you write about
8:47 am
lists. sometimes my husband makes fun of my to do list. he wrote about what is this, figure out this. >> why is the sky blue, what does the tongue of a woodpecker look like? every day we get a list of the things he wants to learn and it's inspiring. >> and the book is based on more than 7,000 pages of notebooks. what did you learn in the course of this that we didn't know before. >> the cool thing about the notebooks is that after 500 years we can still flip through them and say day by day what he was doing and paper was slightly expensive so on any particular page he's maybe drawing a sketch of the last supper, but then he's doing a math experiment and then mountains and then the swirls and curls until you see how his mind leaps across. >> that paper is jam packed. i loved the mona lisa story. >> the fetus in the womb. >> it's very detailed too. >> beautiful. >> when you
8:48 am
lisa, you said he used to bring in musicians to make her smile but he would go to the morgue and see the formation of a smile. >> what do you find in the notebook, we have page after page of him dissecting the human face showing every muscle, every nerve, whether the nerve comes from the brain or the spinal cord and then after a few pages of it, the first slight sketch of mona lisa's smile. so we see how the science connects to the artnd it's inspiring. >> part of it's eerie. >> it is, but you know, he just had this passionate curiosity for curiosity's sake and so he's doing anatomy dissections but he realizes that the beauty of the human body -- >> where does that driver come from? it was just innate for him? >> i don't think so. i think there's certain innate geniuses. einstein is one of them, but i think with
