been a part of. that is it for "starting point." have a great weekend. i had not see you back on monday, but have a happy easter. "cnn newsroom" begins right now. >> all the best, soledad, and we'll miss you. we will cross bath palts again. a dentist office, described as a menace to public health. sickening discoveries and an hiv warning to thousands of patients. in the nfl, end day. one former player coming out of the closet after hiding his sexuality for years. >> you want to escape the turmoil and maybe your mind goes to dark places sometimes. but i would say that i -- i'm happy today. >> a cnn exclusive interview with duane harris. reports of ford cars, trucks, and suvs, suddenly speeding up on their own?
a newly -- nearly three dozen makes and models could be involved and owners want ford to pay up. and trail blazing newswoman. barbara walters about to retire? a new report says yes. some of her greatest moments. "cnn newsroom" starts right now. we begin this morning with a story that will shake the confidence anyone who sits in a dentist chair. up to 7,000 dental patients may have been exposed to hiv and hepatitis in this dental office. investigators were sickened by what they found. >> the thing that was most upsetting us, because we take a
ve very dim view of this, he was allowing unauthorized and unlicensed people to administer sedation. >> what are health officials doing there today? >> health officials are most importantly at this point trying to communicate with the 7,000 patients that have been treated over the klaas six years and urging them to get tested. offering free blood tests to see if they were infected with hepatitis or hiv. health officials say sanitation conditions in this building where scott harrington works as an oral surgeon were horrifying. >> when the health investigators left, we were physically kind of sick and i've seen a lot of bad stuff over the years. >> the health officials say as
many as 7,000 patients in the last six years might have been exposed to hiv, as well as hepatitis b and c. health officials say dr. harrington treated a higher population with those illnesses, but when investigators started inspecting the dental tools and equipment in the office in the last two weeks, what they discovered was disturbing and extremely unsanitary. >> the instruments that came out of the auto claif were horrible. i wouldn't let my nephews play with them in the dirt. they were horrible. they had rust on them. >> health officials believe one patient was infected with hepatitis c from treatments in this office, and the news has sparked a nerve-wracking sense of unease. patients are receiving letters urging them to get tested. >> the magnitude of these infractions in clinical practices and the unknown length of time that the practices may have occurred have prompted public health to begin systemic notification of dr. harrington's
patients and recommend testing for hiv, hepatitis b, and hepatitis c viruss, as many persons who may be infected with these blood-borne viruss may be ineffected for years without experiencing any signs of illness. >> state health officials say dr. harrington voluntarily stopped practices after the investigation of health and safety law violations started a few years ago. harrington is 64 years old, a veteran oral surgeon who started practicing more than 35 years ago. but it's not clear if the closure is permanent or temporary. we haven't been able to reach dr. harrington yet and this is the message callers to his office hear now. >> have you reached the office of dr. scott harrington. the office is currently closed. >> reporter: and as far as criminal charges, none have been filed so far against dr. harrington, but state health officials say they are in contact with the district
attorney's office in tulsa, and not only dr. harrington, but we're told it's the assistants that work with him could face criminal charges as well. >> frightening stuff. thank you very much, ed lavandera. stock markets closed this good friday. but before traders headed out, they pushed the s & p 500 higher, breaking through its all-time record high. zane asher in new york. has the economy turned the corner? >> we need more time, but signs are positive. s & p expected to keep moving higher as the fed keeps pumping billions into the economy, sending interest rates slow. people will continue to see good news for their retirement accounts. finally. wall street wins. >> we begin with breaking news on wall street.
>> s & p topping its peek six years ago. finishing a first quarter we are all waiting for. >> the u.s. is moving in the right direction. >> a lot of economists raised the forecast for first quarter gdp. the first quarter is looking like it will be stronger. >> down 11% since the start of the year. s & p up 10%, nasdaq charging ahead 8. have you opened up your 401(k) lately? one of the brightest spots in our economy, housing. prices are up. sales are up. mortgage rights are low, and we're buying. >> 2013 should be a good year for the housing market. we expect the spring selling season to be quite robust. we have historically low mortgage rates with a 30-year fixed being below 4%. >> it's all a sign things are getting better. people are more confident, buying more, investing more, investing in netflix.
the internet movie site is going gang busters and leading the s & p. if you invested in the company on january 1st, have you doubled your money. the stock is up almost 107%. >> we describe ourselves as an internet television network. we program netflix for our members. we know what our members like to watch so we license the content that our members love to watch. >> other big movers? big box store best buy you up 87%. hewlett-packard up 68%. what's next? big bank strategists at jpmorgan chase say enjoy the ride. stocks expect to return 6% to 8% per year for the next 5 years. i do have to mention, even though stocks appear to be good, unemployment in this country does remain stubbornly high at 7.7%. 12 million americans out of work and the economy is growing, but doing so ever so slowly, fred,
and forced budget cuts still on the horizon. >> zane asher, thank you so much. this morning, a remarkable story of heroism from a man who spent years battling addiction. the 32-year-old man saw a stranger, you will see it in the video here, tumble onto the tracks at the philadelphia subway station and rushed to his rescue. he stayed on the tracks with the man for 15 minutes until help arrived. there are bad scenarios that could have happened and didn't happen because a person unknown to our victim jumped into that track and saved his life. >> there have been people there for me when i needed somebody, you know, and these people, i can't pay back. so the next best thing would be to pay it forward. >> so the back story may make the heroism even more impressive according to the philadelphia enquirer. that monday struggles with addiction most of his life. even while studying neuroscience
at the university of pittsburgh. he has been clean and sober for the past two years now. and a few hours from now, pope francis will celebrate his first good friday service as leader of the catholic church. part of holy thursday mass, he washed the feet of juvenile niles at a youth detention center, the move mirrored jesus washing his disciples' feet and keeping with this pope's emphasis on humility. and the obama administration is expecting to unveil a plan calling for cleaner gasoline. the new rules would reduce sulf sulfur, gas, and cut back smog by 30%. critics say it would also drive up gas prices. this morning, north korea claims rockets are aimed at u.s. military bases in hawaii, guam, south korea and even the u.s. mainland. it is the most recent threat from north korea's kim jong-un.
this photo showing him meeting with the military and planning attacks. north korea says it's a response from the u.s. flying bomber planes over south korea yesterday as part of a joint military exercise. pentagon officials say they are not taking the north's threats lightly. jim walsh joining us from watertown, massachusetts. he joins from m.i.t., and has traveled to north korea before to discuss the nuclear issue. jim, is this a sign that north korea is likely to pull the trigger? what are they doing here? >> no, they are not going to pull the trigger. fundamentals have not changed. these are the core facts. north korea, the weaker of the two military powers. if there was a war, north korea would lose and lose badly. north korea doesn't want that to happen and that's not even counting the u.s. committing
20,000 troops on the peninsula to support our allies. the north koreans don't want a war, but clearly they want to provoke, maybe for domestic consumption for young new leader consolidating his position or winning the support of the military or it might be for purposes of trying to coerceively bargain, to try to win concessions out of south korea, in any case, we don't know why they are doing it, but it's still scary. this has a different feel about it than it has in past years. >> we know north korea cut off military communications with south korea, and we know reportedly that north korea moving missiles from mid range to long-range positions. a little scary. how wore i some is it? >> you know, i don't think -- no one wants war, so unless someone messes up, there won't be a war. that said, the pace of activity this week has been unbelievable. b-2s flying over, nuclear capable american b-2s, b-52s,
u.s. in south korea signed a secret defense pack, and it's classified, very much written about it. meanwhile, north koreans are cutting communication lines. a lot of rhetoric, a lot of activity. my concern is not a war by choice that, someone would deliberately enter. i worry about people messing up. that there is a mistake and this perception and accident, miscalculations and something small turns into something big. that's what i worry about right now, not a deliberate act of war by the north koreans. >> and those would be costly mistakes if it were indeed the case. thank you very much jim watch of m.i.t. the ground is still moving on whidbey island and one more house is at risk of falling. the slide is called a 1-100 or 1-200-year event. one home has been destroyed. some of the dirt may be 11,000
years old and it would take 40,000 dump trucks to remove all of that earth. we are near the landslide. good morning. pretty frightening there. >> especially for the people who live here and are working, and watching thick backyards slowly disappe disappearing. the sign over my shoulder tells the story, warning, danger, active landslide area and for the people who are watching it, they are hoping that no more earth moves. >> the view is breath taking until you look closer. the earth tumbling down hundreds of feet. the grass of this backyard, dangling on the edge above an impromptu cliffside. that took out one house and cut off 17 others. daniel garcia lives or lived, here. his house tagged yellow means it's possible it could go tumbling. >> it seems like the best
interest to go. >> you want to get out of here? >> i wouldn't say that. but the situation kind of dictates. >> despite a large landslide in washington state, a 1-100 or 200 event says geologist terry swanson. >> you don't want to get too close. the entire road, the whole section, 600 to 800 feet of it, has been completely rotated. >> reporter: swanson says knew scientists knew this was coming but couldn't predict when. >> the water pressure can push the sand grains apart and then there is no cohegs and the stuff moves. >> reporter: and this is an example of man vs. nature? rebuilt on stuff we didn't understand? >> absolutely. back in the 1930s, '40s, people weren't thinking about this. >> resident karen mccoy didn't think of it. >> i thought of it as a huge, huge wave crashing against a
cement wall and it was just really strong. >> reporter: it cut off the main road to her house. she finally climbed to a dirt trail at night to get to her cat. >> a little freaked out right now. a lot of anxiety about what's going to happen, will i be able to move back home? >> reporter: daniel garcia isn't anxious. he's made his choice. the man who moved into this house for the view is now leaving, because he has too much of it. now, not everyone is leaving many we were at a meeting last night with some residents, and the residents said they would be staying. why? some of them love it. their houses have been in their families for generations, but others are stuck. they don't have the insurance for this kind of a disaster, because of the geological problems, and fredericka, if they want to get out, they would have trouble selling their property now. >> my goodness. no kidding.
an inkridible loss for so many people on such a scale. when will there be an all clear given. for folks to return to retrieve more, figure out what to do with their properties next? >> reporter: well, it's not quite so simple, we would really like there to be a simple all clear, but what geologists are saying is that you have to kind of watch the land and after a certain period of time, then determine, okay, one house that really is precarious and the other four that are sort of in the middle, they have to wait for this period of time. the question is, what is this period of time? they are trying to figure out exactly how long that is. >> incredible. an incredible view there. thank you so much, we appreciate it. still ahead, after years of hiding his sexuality in the nfl, one player out of the closet. see the emotional exclusive interview with former san francisco 49er, duane harris.

be glued to their sets tonight for four big games. florida gulf coast university has shocked the sports world and busted brackets with two upset wins. our joe carter is on the campus in ft. meyers, florida. people are going bananas and the basketball fooefer is very high there. they are over the top excited, aren't they? >> they were going bananas and they were. the party started at 5:00 a.m. this morning. but it is official over. the kids have to get their rest. recharge. some 13 hours from tip time. very cool morning. 500, 600 fans showed up on the campus of florida gulf coast university. the "today" show putting on a spirit competition between this school and the university of florida and they did award florida gulf coast university as the spirit award winner, so congratulations to them. obviously this team is really
up, the excitement level, they have become the tournament darlings, this is really their moment. but before last week, not a lot of people outside the state of florida had really heard this university. only around since 1991. as a matter of fact, one player on the team, fredricka, older than the university. the basketball team has earned right to play in the sweet 16. beat georgia state, then beat san diego state in the second round and a mighty challenge whether they play third seeded florida. this team not only enjoying the run, they are enjoying the attention and everyone getting know these players a little more personally. >> first news conference, they didn't know what to ask us. they looked at us with blank stares and the week has come, where now they are asking us to prepare for number three team, they have questions for us personally, know a lot more about our school, come a long
way. the recognition of our players and school. they asked a lot of great questions and know us almost on a personal level. >> reporter: now, campus is only 265 miles that separate the two, but as far as basketball reputations go, couldn't be further apart. florida the much more dominant and tradition rich program, having won two national championships before. they'll be back in the elite eight, david vs. goliath. florida 11.5 point favorite. as the kidsly to me, maybe be a quarter of size in terms of student body, but they have twice the spirit. tip-off time, generous 13 hours away. >> exciting stuff. counting the minutes. much more from the "newsroom" right after this. ♪
harris, recently outed in the media the nfl is not necessarily known for its acceptance of gays. not one player in the nfl is openly gay. good to see you. >> good to see you too. >> you played with kwame at stanford. >> i did. >> he revealed to you in a personal way why he decided now was the time to reveal he is gay, not while he was an active nfl player, but as a former player. >> the thing about this, kwame is -- he's such an impressive guy. not only one of the best football players at stanford, but playing masterpieces on the piano, on the violin. none of us knew for certain he was gay. he would could have assumed as much, but we didn't really care. i went back to the college field where we played football together and learned about the fear and mental torment that kwame experienced when he was
hiding his true identity. >> on the field, huh? >> reporter: kwame harris a standout football player from high school to stanford university to first round pick in the nfl draft. he played six seasons in the pros. five with san francisco and one with the raiders. >> i loved football. it provided me with experiences and opportunities that i wouldn't trade with anything else. but at the same time, the cost was great in asking me to not be candidly or open about myself in this complete manner. >> reporter: harris is gay. he's always known this but concealed it until recently. >> i wasn't publicly out until about, i don't know, the beginning of the super bowl, when it was publicized. >> it was publicized after an altercation with an exboyfriend outside a restaurant in los angeles. and then this comment on artie lang's radio show.
>> no gay people on the team. they have to get out of here if they do. >> culver apologized, but the sentiment not uncommon. a gay slur written in spanish in the grease under his eyes caused a suspension for three games. no player in any of the four major male professional sports in the u.s. has ever come out while playing. did you ever consider coming out while you were a player? >> no. not while i was playing. i didn't see those two things as being compatible, now when i look back in hindsight, if i could do it differently, i would like to think i would find the fortitude to make the hard decision. >> reporter: the last closet is an organization to encourage the end of homophobia in male pro sports. >> look back to jackie
robinson's days when he came into baseball. he some trouble, but the management took care of him and made it okay. >> reporter: for many players it's a nonissue. >> we'll support him and treat him like every other player with love, fairness, kindness, ask compassion, it's a tough burden on that person. >> for harris, the burden almost became too much to bear. >> you want to escape the fear, the turmoil and your mind goes to dark places sometimes, i would just say that i -- i'm happy today. and didn't actually work on any of those things. and that, you know, it does get better in the end. >> reporter: haven't spoken to any media about this. why now? >> i want athletes still in the closet or youth who aren't quite sure what their sexuality is to realizes that.
not only is that not unique, but those feelings are -- are common feelings. those feel incredibly alone in having those questions. secondly, i'm gay, i'm a former athlete and i think i'm a pretty normal guy. >> wow. very candid, very revealing conversation with kwame harris and you. you know, you revealed he didn't ever consider coming out while he was playing, but now he's reflecting on it. is he kind of exhibiting almost how instrumental or instructive it might have been, had he come out while he was an active player? >> i think so. this process cathartic for him. he wished that he were able to come out while he was playing, that he had the fortitude, the grace, the strength to be able to do that. the thing he wanted to get across is any gay athlete who is out there, even the youth, especially the youth, he wanted them to know, look, you are not alone, the feelings of pressure, strain, torment, completely
normal, but it does get better. >> now what for him? how does he convey this message, assist or help a lot of young people or other athletes who might be grappling with the same thing he felt tormented by? keeping it quiet? >> his purpose is to raise ksh ness andawareness to close the piece that he's a normal guy. this is not an issue that should be treated the way it's been treated in the past. this is a matter of equality. much like marriage equality for interracial couples. it wasn't until 1967 that was completely acceptable and legal in every state here in the u.s. alone. so this is another one of the instances of inequality that continues to exist in our country. >> does he say what it feels like to hear the ravens current player really wrap his arms around him and say we need to be embracing everyone? >> the guys who are enpowering
guys like kwame, and giving them the peace to talk openly and will help the youth, that's what's important to have people embracing the gay community, and saying he equality is necessary. >> coy wire, very touching. thank you. >> thank you. coming up next, employees in one of the nation's biggest cities can now afford to get sick after a deal is reached following a face-off between politicians and unions. we'll tell you where, next. [ male announcer ] this is bob,
a regular guy with an irregular heartbeat. the usual, bob? not today. [ male announcer ] bob has afib: atrial fibrillation not caused by a heart valve problem, a condition that puts him at greater risk for a stroke. [ gps ] turn left. i don't think so. [ male announcer ] for years, bob took warfarin, and made a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but not anymore. bob's doctor recommended a different option: once-a-day xarelto®. xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem, that doesn't require routine blood monitoring. like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective
to reduce the risk of an afib-related stroke. there is limited data on how these drugs compare when warfarin is well managed. no routine blood monitoring means bob can spend his extra time however he likes. new zealand! xarelto® is just one pill a day, taken with the evening meal. and with no dietary restrictions, bob can eat the healthy foods he likes. do not stop taking xarelto® rivaroxaban without talking to the doctor who prescribes it for you. stopping may increase your risk of having a stroke. get medical help right away if you develop any signs or symptoms of bleeding, like unusual bruising or tingling. you may have a higher risk of bleeding if you take xarelto® with aspirin products, nsaids or blood thinners. talk to your doctor before taking xarelto® if you currently have abnormal bleeding. xarelto® can cause bleeding, which can be serious, and rarely may lead to death. you are likely to bruise more easily on xarelto®, and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. tell your doctors you are taking xarelto® before any planned medical or dental procedures.
before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems. ready to change your routine? ask your doctor about once-a-day xarelto®. for more information including cost support options, call 1-888-xarelto or visit goxarelto.com. in new york city, a battle over paid sick leave may be over, according to "the new york times," which reports a new bill would force companies with at least 15 employees to give full-time workers five compensated sick days a year, mayor bloomberg is expected to veto the bill, but there is enough support in the city
council to actually override him. the sick leave bill was the result of a deal being reached between new york city politicians and a coalition of labor unions and activists. joining me now, jason johnson, chief political correspondent for politics 365 and political science professor at hiram college. good to see you. and cnn contributor and political columnist for newsweek and the daily beast, john avlon. thank you for being here. christine quinn, does his compromise say anything about the strength of unions which have been the target of high-profile political fights in the past few years? >> it says it's common sense. look if workers are losing benefits, it's difficult to retain workers, so she was just realizing the political reality, something necessary. i don't think it's union's busting muscle, people recognizing if you don't provide a healthy or worthwhile
workplace, people don't want to work there. >> this is political. christine quinn tried to avoid a bill on this for years now. they don't want it to move forward. absolutely a reflection of the strength of the unions in new york. this is all politics much more than policy. >> how will this not have a ripple effect? the largest city in this country, new york city? >> they are not the first too do this. have you connecticut doing it, oregon doing, washington state doing it a lot of places. i think to a small state like ohio, where a lot of instances, paid sick leave already standard. the only way you can attract people to unattractive parts of the country. the reality, a necessary evil for many businesses to pay for. >> hard to argue not to have it. >> it is hard to argue not to have it from the simple question. the real question is that is this something businesses should
be offered to attract workers? or something that the state should be mandating? will it hurt economic competitiveness and make some businesses move out? the fragile economy right now, that's a legitimate concern, especially for small and mid-sized businesses. >> this won't take affect until next year. who is this impacting the most? >> this is impacting single mothers. this is the thing. most people who are using sick leave, it's not for themselves, it's for their children. and if you don't give people the opportunity to step out of work, look, my son, daughter has the sniffles, they will step out anyway. the businesses will lose this money anyway. might as well make it beneficial and productive for your employees. >> that's the argument as to why it's not political. >> but it is basically political. everything is political, when the labor unions will determine who gets the nomination. look, this is a big thing for families at home and there is a sense for businesses to offer it. and when it gets imposed by
government, at times of a fragile economy, this isn't the late 199 0z. workers can't say, fine if i don't like the health benefits package, i'm out of here this is a philosophical debate. where the rubber meets the road when it comes to a still recovering committee. >> most workers don't feel like they have the strength to hold workplace accountable. but government has the upper hand. >> they have to in this particular instance, we have been using the excuse, it's a bad economy for way too long. >> it's been a bad economy, but we don't need to lose the basics of how we keep a worthwhile business. companies saying hey, whether you are losing productivity in march madness, we'll put a tv in the room. there are things you can do to keep it practical and functional. >> i love that from a worker standpoint. a strange new man date. government says you have to put the ncaa on, you may have a problem. >> something tells me no one

and we left, we were just physically kind of sick. i mean, that's how bad -- i've seen a lot of bad stuff over the years. >> the dental office closed, the doctor facing several investigations. ♪ and i will always love you and he's credited for the rise of the career in whitney houston, bruce springsteen and many others. clyde davis joining us live. cnn newsroom starts right now. good morning again, everyone. i'm frederica winfield. the ground is still moving on whidbey island and at least one more house is at risk of falling. the slide has already destroyed at least one home. experts are calling this a bon in 100 or 200 year event. they say some of the dirt may be 11,000 years old and it would
take 40,000 dump trucks to remove all of that earth. good morning. are people given any reasons to be optimistic? >> reporter: well, they're crossing their fingers and waiting for this unknown period about of time before they're being allowed to actually know to those at risk homes and say whether or not they will be able to live there. in the meantime, it is awaiting game. so what the county is doing for some of the residents who can't get to their homes is to make it a little easier to walk there. you see this big dirt pile over here. this is gravel that will be laid over a hiking trail so that those residents can go to those homes that have been cut off because of this huge landslide. the view is breath taking. until you look closer. the earth is still tumbling down hundreds of feet. the grass of this backyard
dangling on the edge above an impromptu cliff side that took out one house and cut off 17 others. daniel garcia lives -- or lived -- here. his house tagged yellow means it's possible it could go tumbling. >> kind of seems like the best interest to go. >> so you want to get out of here. >> i'd rather not, but the situation kind of dictates. >> reporter: this sort of large landslide in washington state is a one in 100 or 200 year event says geologist terry swan son. >> just beyond the cliff here, don't want to get too close, so the entire road, this whole section here about 600 to 800 feet of it, has been completely rotated. >> reporter: swan son says scientists knew this was coming, but couldn't predict exactly when. >> when you get lots of water, the water pressure can push it apart and there is no cohesion and the stuff moves. >> and is this an example of man versus nature, that we built on
stuff we just didn't understand? >> yes, absolutely. back in the 1930s and 40s, even the 1960s, people weren't thinking about this. >> reporter: this recent department wasn't she moved in a few months ago. >> i thought of it as like a huge wave crashing against a cement wall. and it was just really strong. >> reporter: it cut off the main road to her house. she finally climbed through a dirt trail at night to get her cat. >> she's a little freaked out right now. there is just a lot of anxiety about like what's going to happen, will i be able to move back home. >> reporter: daniel garcia isn't anxious. he's made his choice. the man who moved into this house for the view is now leaving because he has too much of one. so the big question, will anymore homes be lost. according to the geologists, there is one house that's really at risk, that's considered the
red house, the one that they're not letting anyone into. there are four houses like mr. garcia's house that are yellow, people can step in, but they have to leave fairly quickly. and when we were standing in the backyard of one of those yellow houses, i asked the geologist, so would you live here? and frederica, he was saying maybe for a short period of time, but nothing long term. >> so you and that geologist were standing on the edge there. did the ground feel soft? was there any reason except for looking down below any reason for you to think or feel uneasy about the fact that that ground could give at any point? >> reporter: you get that sort of sick feeling in your stomach when you're looking down at a cliff. yeah, definitely had that. the ground didn't feel particularly soft. he said where we were standing was probably okay, but he wouldn't get too much closer to the edge. the key is to see whether or not there is any shearing, any breakage in that ground. and he didn't see any. but, again, they just have to
wait a little bit longer, see what's going to happen to that earth. >> i'm sure that's what they thought when they built those houses there, too. all right. thanks so much. be careful out there. the epa today expected to announce it's proposing new rules for cleaner gas. supporters say it will cut smog by a third and prevent more 2,000 pollution related deaths per year. but oil refiners warn the proposal could boost prices as much as ten cents a gallon. dan lothian, who would the new rules mean? >> reporter: the epa will be looking to cut the amount of sulfur allowed in gasoline. this would be similar to what you have in the environmentally sensitive state of california. and what this would mean for refiners is that they would have to have some upgrades getting new equipment or new technologies. i talked to an administration official who told me that of the 111 refine i ares out there, only 16 would have to have
upgrades. and so they would have to get this new technology. the big question, though, for consumers out there is what all of this will mean for them and there are some estimates as you pointed out that this could add another 6 to 10 cents on to a gallon of gasoline. but an administration official telling me that an epa analysis and also independent analysis, as well, shows that that would be closer to one creent a gallo. >> and how soon could this become law? >> reporter: we're talking about long term here. there is a period of public comment which would lost roughly a year or so. and then officials saying that this would be implemented beginning in 2017. so sort of a slow implementation. and then it would be about a decade for the full implementation to take place. so we're talking long term here before you will see any real impact of this beginning in 2017. >> all right. dan lothian at the white house,
thanks so much. here is another political story generating a local the lot of buzz this morning. congressman who has represented alaska for 340 years now is trying to blunt the anger of his use of a word that's widely viewed as an ethnic slur. listen to don young in a radio interview earlier this week. >> i used to -- my father had a ranch. we used to hire 50 to 60 wetbacks to pick tomatoes. you know, it takes two people to pick the same tomatoes now. >> he stopped short of issuing an apology for his choice of words. he said he meant no disrespect and said the term was even used by the government in the 1950s when he was growing up. the nonapology will not sit well with some republican leaders who say the party needs to more effectively reach out to minority voters. so listen to what rising gop star bobby jindal said just two
months ago. >> we've got to stop being stupid party. and i'm serious. it's time for a new republican party that talks like adults. it's time for us to articulate our plans and visions for america in real terms. no secret we had a number of republicans take that damaged the brand with defensive and bizarre comments. we've had enough of that. >> and that was before young's comments. so jindal raised eyebrows at that moment when he made the remarks at a gathering of republican national committee members. so a group of ford owners have a big concern. they say their cars can randomly speed up. and now they're seeing nord to f ford to fix it. they want a judge to give them class action status. zain asher is in new york with more on this lawsuit. >> yeah, cars randomly speeding occupy their own. but about 20 consumers banded
together for this class action lawsuit. it involves ford vehicles made between 2002 and 2010 specifically the ford lincoln and mercury brands. here's what the complaint says. it says that the electronic throttle control system in these cars can basically take control of the accelerator making it it so that drivers cannot stop their vehicles. these cars apparently just speed up on their own as you mentioned, pretty dangerous stuff. here's what people are saying. they're saying ford knew about the defect and hidden in it from customers. also saying that ford put profit ahead of customer safety. in terms of dollar amount, we're not sure the exact amount, but in terms of compensation, they certainly want to be compensated for the loss of value on the defected car, they also want ford to fix the problem. the cars now have brake override systems in place so that if the brake and accelerator are pressed at the same time, the car should stop.
>> and ford's response? >> so far we haven't heard back yet, but ford has been quoted as saying that the national highway traffic safety administration has investigated the being a accept races over the years and concluded that in most cases any unintended increased speed is actually the driver's fault and only in rare occasions are mechanical issues to r. to blachl. and it has been a pretty bad week for ford. also in the spotlight when some ford india ads were leaked showing three women tied and gaga bagged in the back of a car. so bad week for ford. >> thanks so much, zain asher. appreciate it. coming up, a priest, rabbi and reverends coming together for easter and protecting america's drone -- protesting, rather, america's drone warfare. why they say the obama administration needs to stop playing god. when you have diabetes... your doctor will say get smart about your weight. i tried weight loss plans... but their shakes aren't always made for people with diabetes.

americans will be thinking about someone long ago who said those who live by the sword will parish by the sword. now, or opposition to drones is just about two things. first, we believe that remote control targeted assassinations is completely counter to the teachings of christ. and it's also never been a policy that and government has been part of -- i sometimes don't recognize my own country that it would prosecute remote controlled assassination. and the second humane point that we're trying to make is that when you kill someone through a remote controlled drone on a screen, thousands of miles away, you completely objectify or dehumanize this person. and we believe that even our sworn enemy remains a child of
god. and to execute, to try, to judge, and to kill a person without even the chance of surrender is completely contrary to the great humane ideas. >> is this a statement on modern warfare as a whole? because drones aren't the only i guess type of military apparatus where remote controls are used. >> yes, we see all these technologies that digitize and turn warfare and combat which is a grievous thing into a kind of technique, a video game as one of my colleagues as said it, we see these as running completely contrary to the i/thou character of any real engagement and they to us are a kind of total attack and re few tags of the fact that all human beings deserve a chance and deserve -- stand in
need of being regarded as brothers and sisters. martin luther king once said, he said our enemy, our brother he said, our brother and sister whom we regard as an enemy. and that's the kind of idea about humans and love that we're attempting at good friday and easter to bring into the conversation. >> reverend, thanks so much for your time. still ahead in the cnn newsroom, a dentist's office described as a menace to public health. rusty equipment, sickening discoveries. and now an hiv warning to thousands of patients. the new guy is loaded with protein! i'll believe it when i--- [ both ] oooooh...

patients in the last six years might have been exposed to hiv as well as hepatitis b and c. health officials say dr. harrington treated a higher population of patients with those illnesses, but when investigators started inspecting the dental tools and equipment in the office in the last two weeks, what they discovered was disturbing and extremely unsanitary. >> the instruments that came out of the autoclave were horrible. i wouldn't let my nephews play with them out in the dirt. they had rust on them. >> reporter: so far health officials believe at least one patient was infected with hepatitis c from treatments in this office. the news has sparked a nerve. patients are receiving letters urging them to get tested. >> the magnitude of these infractions in clinical practices and the unknown length of time that the practices may have occurred have prompted public health to begin systemic notification of dr. harrington's
patients and recommend testing for hiv, hepatitis b and hepatitis c viruses as many persons who may be infected with these blood-born viruses may be inspected for years without experiencing any signs of illne illness. >> reporter: state health officials say dr. harrington vol untake yourly stopped practicing after the investigation of health and safety law violations started a few weeks ago. harrington is 64 years old, a veteran oral surgeon, who started practicing more than 35 years ago. but it's not clear if the closure is permanent or temporary. we haven't been able to reach dr. harrington yet and this is the message callers to his office hear now. >> you have reached the office of dr. scott harrington. the office is currently closed. >> reporter: criminal charges have now benot been filed yet, t they are in touch with the district attorney's office and prosecutors here in tulsa. and it's not just dr. harrington

in jail charged with hindering that investigation. james henry brooks who you see in red is accused of influencing a witness and obstructing law enforcement. let's get the latest now from our jackson affiliate. so erica, what more specifically do we know about what he's accused of, the mayor? >> reporter: good morning. just moments before we went on air, i had the chance to speak with the attorney representing commissioner james brooke. his name is alan tucker. he's a local attorney and he handed me a copy of james brooke's bond order and a written apology from the commissioner. he is being held on $8,000 bond for the two counts he's charged with. obstruction of law enforcement and influencing a witness. he will be released from jail within the hour according to his attorney. now, we understand james brooks turned himself into the detention center last night.
we understand his wife drove him there. on these two charge, his attorney says he turned himself in because it's always better to bring yourself in than have police arrest you. check out this video that we shot here at the courthouse monday afternoon. his attorney says that this could have led to the charges that he is now facing. this is monday as 17-year-old demarquise elkins' family walked out of court here. they were leaving elkins' first appearance where a judge told him he's charged with felony murder for the toddler's death. walking with the teen's mother is city commissioner james brooks. and at one point in our video you can see james brooks' attorney -- james brooks put his arm around the mother. now, this teen's family has also been arrested on charges connected to the death of 13-year-old antonio santiago that happened here last week. his mother and sister lied to them about the case.

man whose name is synonymous with the music industry? >> just to correct the record, i had nothing to do with jimi hendrix. i'll lay climb to springsteen and joplin. my parents died when i was a late teenager. he had no money. i studied law to become a lawyer. luck was on my way and the firm i went to work for represented columbia records. i became their general counsel for five years. and then of the company. so i was thrust into it. and never knowing that i either had a natural ear and gift for music or that it would become the passion of my life. >> so this natural ear for music and this real knack for, you know, discovering talent or recognizing talent, what do you suppose that quality is? and what is it that you look for when you tap into those kind of,
you know, keen interests that you have? >> well, my first signing really showed -- you hear about the tingle that goes up your spine. i saw the first artist, janis joplin and big brother and the holding company at the monterey pop festival. it changed my life. if the word epiphany has any meaning, that's what happened. i knew i had to step forward and make my first creative musical signing move. so that's what i it. and i signed big brother. she was so care rcharismatic. i don't think anyone had seen the likes of her before. and i trusted my ears after that as we launched janis joplin and. i don't think anyone had seen the likes of her before. and i trusted my ears after that as we launched janis joplin and. i don't think anyone had seen the likes of her before. and i trusted my ears after that as we launched janis joplin and.
i don't think anyone had seen the likes of her before. and i trusted my ears after that as we launched janis joplin and. i don't think anyone had seen the likes of her before. and i trusted my ears after that as we launched janis joplin and blood sweat and tears and santana and bruce springsteen. after a while, you're looking for the headliner, you're looking for someone who can take an audience out of its seat. and if it's a singer/song write are like springsteen who has become with bob dylan the musical potential either laureates of america, you're looking for that imagery to distinguish them. and so it's a combination and it depends on the artist that you're really appraising. >> so it was one thing, a very big thing, to have that knack to be able to identify that musician, that artist has that it thing. and it's another for that artist to entrust their career in you. what was it that you either promised or what could you exude to those artists that they said, you know, what yep, sign me up, i want to be with you clive davis. >> well, the first one that you have to cross that bridge.
there i had a connection with joplin, whether it was trust, whether it was integrity. we had an instant connection. but then when you start building that track record and when you find that each of the artists as i said blood sweat and tears and santana and when they start becoming successful, he start building your track record, he you start building your expertise. and i do want to emfor a size i take none of this ever for granted for this day. so that i keep my ear fresh. i'm afraid of going over the hill. so i make sure peers of mine did go over the hill. i make sure that i listen to every new record as it hits the chart so that it takes vigilance and yyou build in xerpexpertise
the artist feels trust with you. >> so another artist proud to attach her name to you, a rethat frank will i be, you didn't necessarily discover her, she was already aretha, but she did come to you because she felt like she needed her career to be reviv revived. what is it that you were able to do that, you know, you can be credited as helping aretha? >> well, she's the greatest natural singing resource we've ever had in history. we say put aretha in one side. but artists need songs. if they don't write, the importance of signature songs to be a part of their career. so after columbia where i signed all self contained rock artists that have got me in the rock and roll hall of fame and arista, when i founded arista, i was
honing my ear for the hit song. and trying to see those like barry manilow wrote but needed additional material for his signature songs, with the success of mandy and write the songs, can't smile without you, weekend in new england, and then dionne warwick i'll never love this way again, day gentlem dej wanted that creative partnership that she had when she did respect and natural woman. gl >> unbelievable. we look at the pictures of all the people associated with clive davis. so much more ahead with clive davis. missing on there is the picture of whitney houston. his very special relationship with her on the other side of the break.

♪ and i will always love you late superstar whitney houston singing the classic i will always love you. we continue our conversation with the man who helped discover her. clive davis helped shape her career. author of the sound track of my life. a best seller. you say this chapter about whitney houston really was one of the most difficult, maybe the most difficult for you to write. is that because of her death or
the span of her career, tconten of her life or what? >> for the record, i never worked with jon bon jovi, but did with all others. regarding whitney, i was there when her career began, i discovered her when she was 19. and we embarked breaking every record in the record book, seven number ones, $22 million for the first album. she was a workhorse. she went all over the world to every country, just continued -- bodyguard still the best selling sound track. so when you realize the magnitude of her talent and i know her as a person, it was sad and tragic that she couldn't deal with the lethal issue of drugs. so it's too recent to really
hch-i did the best. i have apextended chapter in this book about, a, our relationship, b, the sides of her the public did not know, and then the few days right before she died, what she was looking forward to. so, yes, it's painful. we were more than just an artist that i signed in my administration. we were creative partners. and i worked with them to find every song she ever really word recorded that's become a standard today. >> i didn't know her, but hearing this song gives me chills. so to know her so well, to be so engrained in her life, what hearing her music does to you. >> you know, it rips your heart out is what it does. because she was full of life and contrary to the tabloidal reports, she loved music.
it permeated her soul. when she and i were together, which was 48 hours before she passed away, she was playing me the mud sic from her new movie, sparkle. i was working with jennifer hudson and so that whether in the industry, all of us, alicia keys, those that wrote, produced, arranged for that glorious voice, we knew there was no one like her. and it is very, very painful that this this tragic, tragic talent came to an early demise. >> your book is beautiful because of the words you speak and subpoenas you open the book, that jacket, there's a photograph and it is a remarkable photo. and i wonder the story behind this photo when you look at the talents of alicia keys, you, rod stewart, carrie underwood, and
there is whitney front and center. what was the evolution of this picture? who had the wherewithal to take this photo when it was taken? >> every year i throw a party the night before the grammys. we all celebrate music. it really has become the party each year. and the picture we've taken for "people" magazine every year became a tradition. and that year, alicia and whitney and in's rod stewart and carrie, they gathered before the evening and we took this picture and "people" gave us a two page photo every single year and that was the year that part of the book, i think that's the inside cover, of the biography.

properties abandoned or in the sometimes neglectful hands of banks. >> when i say that investors don't care the same way as homeowners, you can see that they don't. >> reporter: the goal, keep the neighborhood liveable until better times come. reverend savage. >> banks only listen to other people who have power and organization. >> reporter: by pooling the efforts of many, voice effectively pushed banks to help pay for financial counseling, more afford r affordable homes and help rewrite the loans for those families who have stayed through all the turmoil. >> most aren't having trouble with the income anymore. but they are having trouble now that they've regained their footing of getting the banks to work with them so that they can keep this community a homeowner occupied community instead of a rental community. >> reporter: it has been a long and lonely struggle and the housing rebound still seems far away. but in this corner of virginia, the battle of the home front goes on. tom foreman, cnn, washington.
