7:00 am
ukraine and pro russian rebels have signed a cease-fire agreement and it's scheduled to take hold one hour from now. the ukrainian president says we must do everything possible and impossible to stop the blood shed. united nations says more than 2,000 people have died in the four-month fight. cnn international correspondent matthew chant is in moscow, and diane is outside of maripol in eastern ukraine. what do we know about the cease-fire deal? >> it's my understanding that the cease-fire is coming into effect on this hour but maybe diana will be able to clarify that situation. that's certainly the word we got here in moscow. details are sketchy. the main point obviously being the hostilities supposedly coming to an end. there's also a stipulation in the announcement that's been put
7:01 am
out by the ukrainian president that the international control will be handed over essentially to the osce. they will provide an international monitor presence to make sure the cease-fire isn't violated. also, president por row shonco -- poroshenko mentioned the liberation of hostages. talking about an exchange of prison evers -- prisoners on both sides. that certainly seems to tally with the seven-point peace plan that was issued by vladimir putin a few days ago, the russian president. we put down those seven points as saying this is the pathway to a peace deal or at least a pathway to a cease-fire in eastern ukraine. he had a telephone conversation with petro poroshenko on wednesday. they both ended that conversation saying that agreed
7:02 am
to that outline for a peace, or cease-fire agreement. one important thing to look out for is one of the terms of the 7-point putin plan was that the ukrainian military move back to positions outside of the firing range. missile range of population centers to prevent missiles and rocket launches being fired on densely populated area that's caused so much suffering and blood shed over the course of the past several months. if that happens, it could of course leave the pro russian rebels with vast swaths of territory that they would control and not the central government of kiev to control. that would give moscow a great deal of sway across large areas of ukraine. >> let's talk more that now. what are the pro russian rebels saying to you about this cease-fire? >> well, carol, most of the
7:03 am
time, we've been tracking the constant shelling that's been going on pretty much all day between the city and mariopol and the city of novoazovsk in russia. the explosions seem to be coming both from the pro russian rebel side and the ukrainian side and it would appear as though yesterday the rebels advanced really quite close to mariopol has been pushed out somewhat. at the outskirts of the city today, there were significant ukrainian reinforcements, not just these battalions that have been called in to assist the national guard and army, but also the army themselves. we have driven around this whole area, above the fighting really,
7:04 am
and it is a maze of checkpoints, ukrainian and then pro russian rebel, of course, none of them completely prevent you from filming those checkpoints, it's difficult really to illustrate what's going on. there was a 10-kilometer stretch between them, no man's land. it seems to be quiet for now. we believe that the cease-fire is meant to go into effect in an hour's time. well, we'll have to see it to believe it. it certain looks as if the rebels were trying to consolidate their gains and certainly to put pressure on the krawns -- ukrainians. >> thanks to both of you. president obama is schedule to speak from the nato summit soon. we're expecting him to comment on the the cease-fire in ukraine as well as efforts to stop isis. and at any minute we're
7:05 am
expecting statements from david cameron, fran sois hollande, and anders rasmussen. reuters reports nine other countries besides the united states are involved in talks for that coalition. they include, britain, france, germany, turkey, canada, australia, denmark. kerry said this, we have the technology, know how, what we need is obviously the will power to make sure we are steady and stay at this and he continued saying obviously i think that's a red line for everybody here. no boots on the ground. but reports say that some leaders like britain's prime minister and france's president have privately told mr. obama that washington needs to do more than order air strikes, it needs an overall strategy. cnn's michelle kosinksi joins us
7:06 am
from wales. >> what we've heard is very tough talk from the u.s. and u.k. action is a little elusive. when asked directly are you any closer to air strikes, the prime minister says vaguely we are closer to doing everything we can to squeeze isis out of existence and every country has its own political and financial constraints, but the u.s. is emphasizing that europe is willing to form a coalition, that they see isis as a great enough threat, especially with those foreign fighters that could return home and today we saw that coalition building in action really up close for the first time, ten nations meeting, forming goals, and the u.s. has said that each nation will have its own commitment. some might want to contribute only humanitarian aid or equipment, but for some others it will be military.
7:07 am
here's what secretary of state kerry said. there is no contained policy for isis. they are an ambitious avowed genocide al, territorial grabbing caliphate desiring qawsi state within a regular army, and leaving them in some capacity intact anywhere would leave a cancer in place that will ultimately come back to haunt us. so there is no issue in our minds about our determination to build this coalition go after this. he and the other nations involved now want to form a task force that would try to stop those foreign fighters from traveling and also tract their movements but this is still in the planning stalk and kerry said this is let's look at a couple of weeks from now when we want to firm up the plans for this coalition. >> stay with cnn. we'll have special coverage next
7:08 am
hour when president obama is expected to speak at 11:30 a.m. eastern time. there is a new snapshot of the economy taking shape no morning and it's not altogether pretty. we've learned that 142,000 jobs were created last month. that's a big disappointment from the 200,000 plus that most experts had predicted yet the unemployment rate inches down just a bit from 6.2% to 6.1%. let's break down the numbers with christine romans and we're join by monica metta. what is the big picture? >> the big picture is you had a slow down in job creation. that was a disappointment. a lot of people expected you would have another month of 200,000 plus. and you didn't get it. 142,000 jobs created shows a little more trepidation from employers in the month of august. it breaks that very nice streak of six months of job gains. you talked about unemployment.
7:09 am
6.1% is still pretty good. 6.1% has been coming down pretty dramatically over the past couple of years. right here, when you look at that number, 6.1% one of the reasons is people were dropping out of the labor market. people were discouraged and started to give up working and that's one of reasons why the jobless rate fell a little bit. what we want to know is this one month a blip or is it going to continue? a lot of economists are telling me don't worry yet. august is a funny month for hiring anyway. this is something i think is really important, a broadening out of some of the jobs created. professional business services, these tend to pay more. a lot of growth, energy happening in health care, but 8,000 retail jobs lost. so closely watching how we're broadening out those job seconders, carol. >> the economy is getting a bit better, growing sluggishly. it's hard to believe the
7:10 am
recession ended more than five years ago because for many americans it doesn't feel like it. >> you are precisely right. it's a very different economy whether you are employed or under employed in america. for the people who have been employed, they are probably working more than they were five years ago. they are probably in line forays. they are seeing their stock portfolio and their housing prices depreciate. for the people who have had a hard time finding a job, it's a very different story. you actually can see through census data, time and use studies, it shows people who were unemployed actually aren't giving up looking for a job. they are spending more time on average than the short term unemployed. the difference is they are just not getting the interviews, and so you are having a large group of america, be swath that with 6 million five years ago, it's three million now, these folks are falling through the cracks and we're just not finding a way to bring them back in. >> let's get a little more
7:11 am
specific and look at a couple of disconcerting numbers. part-time jobs still remain much higher than in a normal economy. more than 7 million americans want full-time jobs but they have to settle for part-time work. freelancers make up 37% of the u.s. workforce. that's a 1/3 of all jobs in our economy. chis teen, are these trends? is that the new normal? >> sometimes economists say companies are more likely to hire a freelancer, or hire somebody part-time until the company feels more confident and starts to add workers but we do know companies have been had record corporate profits without having to add a lot of labor and that is something that they will do as long as they can. they are not going to add people if you can make money without hiring more workers, but at some point, if the economy gets more steam, if you get more confidence as more time passes from the great recession and the crash of 2008, you may start to
7:12 am
see hiring pick up again. one thing i will say is really a two-speed recovery. there are ceos who complain to me every day they can't find the workers they need, skilled technical workers, engineering, hard sciences, anything with computer programming. they say they are not getting the people they need in that area but there is an abundance of people who can work low-wage jobs in retail and hospitality, at fast food restaurants. so these two extremes in the market, even within health care where i showed you job creation, home health aides, huge demand for those jobs. there's also a lot of demand on the top end, physical therapists, occupational therapy, things like that. for workers you have to try to do whatever you can to put yourself in the place that's growing but also paying more. >> all right, christine romans, monica metta thanks so much. i appreciate it. if you have questions about the

report, christine is hosting a facebook chat. joan rivers reached far and wide, including the countless female comedians who hoped to follow in her footsteps. how the stars are paying tribute next. hi there!

7:15 am
that's the way i look at life. looking for something better. especially now that i live with a higher risk of stroke due to afib, a type of irregular heartbeat, not caused by a heart valve problem. i was taking warfarin, but wondered if i kept digging, could i come up with something better. my doctor told me about eliquis... for three important reasons. one, in a clinical trial, eliquis was proven to reduce the risk of stroke better than warfarin. two, eliquis had less major bleeding than warfarin. and three, unlike warfarin, there's no routine blood testing. don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding,
7:16 am
like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. those three important reasons are why eliquis is a better find for me. ask your doctor today if eliquis is right for you. joan rivers never one to pull any punches was adored by
7:17 am
fans worldwide and her take no prisoners approach left us wanting more. >> can we talk? my hot flashes are so bad, i was hit by a heat seeking missile. you don't know. if i want to see three people who make tons of money and have no talent. i will not watch you guys, i will watch the kardashians. >> it's no big deal to have a woman in the white house. john f. ken did -- kennedy had a thousand. >> she's awesome. she was also known as a trailblazer, though, paving the way for many female comedians. sar va silver man olympiad paid tribute. >> i know if she was here, she
7:18 am
would want us to be here and be funny, she would like to have me say, nice tie, who made it, calvin clown? i like that shirt. does it come in men's? oh, jimmy, i love your hair. i have to ask you where you bought it. >> that was perfect. e.t. brooke anderson joins me now. nice to see you. as joan's daughter melissa said, joan would want us to be laughing. >> she was a trailblazer, a pioneer for women like sarah silverman, kathy griffin, she was always on. ready for a joke, but at the same time there was a vulnerability to joan. i remember one of last times i interviewed her, i said joan what is the biggest challenge you've had to overcome and --
7:19 am
she pawds, she got serious and she said age. she said this is a business that's getting younger and younger and you have to keep with that and that's hard. >> i watched the documentary about joan rivers, she talked about why she had so many plastic surgeries. no one wants to look at an old woman. >> i asked her why do you work so hard? she said i love what i do. that's why. >> because we're stunned joan is gone, it's a testament of how hard she worked. i saw her on a flight that landed at 1:00 a.m., a few days
7:20 am
before she passed away. >> you never thought of her as 81 years old. >> no, she did not seem 81 years old. we're learning that her funeral will be here in new york on sunday at the temple emanuel. >> she joked that she wanted this glamorous funeral. >> publicists and katerers. she wants a fan in the casket so her hair is blowing like beyonce. she will be taken back to l.a. for her final resting place. there are also two investigations surrounding joan rivers' death. the new york health department is investigating the outpatient clinic where she was undergoing
7:21 am
the elective procedure and went into cardiac arrest. >> two separate dwagses going on at the same time. the medical examiners office is going to be focusing on the cause and the manner of joan rivers' death but the new york state department of health is going to be looking at the clinic where it happened. the state health department says that its investigators inspected the clinic, no complaints regarding the facility or violations, but investigators have now been back on site. they are going to be looking at different documents, medical records, interviewing staff and physicians. what they want to do is see is that this clinic was operating in cliens with all the state's regulations. they want to see if there was any deficiencies in the operation. it was supposed to be a relatively simple procedure on her throat. we know there were complications, the cardiac and
7:22 am
respiratory arrest. >> thanks so much. still to come in the "newsroom," virginia's former first couple tries and fails a unique legal defense. their marriage was simply too icy for them to agree on anything, much less breaking the law. we'll take a closer look at the jury's verdict and the politics of divorce, the court of public opinion next.

7:26 am
by now you know the former governor of virginia is facing prison time, the blame the wife because she's a nut bag strategy did not sway the jury. it found bob mcdonnell and his wife guilty. the couple was charge with illegally accepting gifts. mcdonnell sobbed in court since the verdict was read out. we have more for you. >> the disgraced former governor bob mcdonnell fought his way through the crowd. the jury found the mcdonnells misuse ds the power of the governor's office by accepting lavish gifts and loans from johnny williams. >> when public officials turn to
7:27 am
financial gain in exchange for official acts, we have little choice but to prosecute the case. >> the evidence a treasure trove of gifts and loans, including expensive golf outings, vacations with yachts and spas for the couple. a $19,000 new york city shopping spree, $15,000 in catering for their daughter's wedding, a $6,000 rolex watch for the government -- governor. all for promoting williams company star scientific. mcdonnell told the jury he didn't need williams' money and he didn't give him any special favors. while mcdonnell in front of the cameras professed his life for his wife, his attorneys presented evidence of a relationship so troubled they could not have conspired together. in this email to his wife in
7:28 am
2011, the governor wrote i am completely at a loss to handle the fiery anger and hate from you that has become more and more frequent. i did try to hide and deceive anyone. >> it's kind of a risky strategy, because even if the jury thinks they did have a broken marriage, that doesn't necessarily mean they weren't conspiring to receive these gifts. >> the emails showed the couple were in regular contact and even vacationed together, all things the jury used in handing down their verdict. the couple's defense strategy to trash their marriage clearly didn't work. during the pretrial hearing, the couple arrived holding hands, and during the trial, they arrived in separate vehicles. he's moved out of the home and now living with his priest. he's now headed to prison.
7:29 am
what struck me about this trial is the mcdonnell sham of a marriage. mcdonnell ran as a family man in love of his wife. he carried her over the threshold when he was elected governor. she played along publicly. but every minute, apparently, she hated every moment of it. as the university of virginia's larry sab ato tweeted, no first lady has been treated so badly since mary todd lincoln was committed to an asylum by her own son. my question is why didn't she just divorced? it sounds like an episode of scandal. why didn't they get divorced? >> because they didn't want to. i think the response to larry would be i think maureen mcdonnell helped jump herself in front of the bus. the jury thawing this was a sham
7:30 am
break up. it was a lie for legal purposes, not political purposes. they were trying to say our marriage is so broken, we could never have conspired for corruption. instead, maureen was doing this on her own and she doesn't have any power. the goal for both of them was to stay out of jail. they were lying. they just weren't lying about having a good marriage. they were lying about having a bad marriage. >> i do believe they had a really bad marriage, though. >> maybe they stopped talking over lunch or they stopped doing whatever married couples do. i've never been married so i don't even want to figure that out right now, but here's the problem, no one is above the law. the governor, when you look at the indictment against the governor and now the charges that -- the felony charges, he basically lent the prestige of his office to this guy as star scientific, mr. williams, that's what he's been indicted and
7:31 am
convicted of. that was the real case. not the marriage. i think their threw their marriage under the bus as a legal strategy. it didn't work. it back fired. >> you think they had a good marriage? >> how could any of us ever know what the true nature of their -- >> he's living with a priest now, not with her. >> that's when it starts. when you leave with your priest, if i have to live with my priest, i guarantee you, if i lived with my priest, it would be because i want to drink more wine. the bottom line is he's not above the law and now virginia officials must really go back and design strong ethics law so this will never occur again and being from louisiana maybe we can give them some ideas. i want to talk about how be divorced and a republican and be elected to office? ronald reagan was divorced so why is it such a big deal to say i'm having problems in my
7:32 am
marriage, people. >> many argue it's not such a big deal right now. you have several governors right now, andrew cuomo and john hick hickenlooper are both divorced. the question is how far in the past have you been divorced? i think during the campaign phase or political wind-up phase that would be hurtful to your campaign. having had a divorce, ronald reagan got divorced in 1949 and got elected in 1980. >> i just want to ask you a hypothetical question. i know hillary clinton and bill clinton love each other. if they were to get a divorce, do you think it would affect a possible run for president for hillary clinton? >> no, i don't think so. look, people know bill clinton because he's been a champion for middle class families. they know hillary clinton because she's also been a
7:33 am
champion. they are going to judge hillary clinton on her own merits not just simply she's married to a former president of the united states. >> awful close to a presidential election, you are talking about star lives, like brad and angelina. >> the only thing we can anticipate is they are waiting for their grandchild. >> by all accounts, they are very happy together. thanks so much. i appreciate it. >> kind of an interesting topic. i'll be right back. and low blood sugar. januvia (sitagliptin) is a once-daily pill that, along with diet and exercise, helps lower blood sugar. januvia works when your blood sugar is high and works less when your blood sugar is low, because it works by enhancing your body's own ability to lower blood sugar. plus januvia, by itself, is not likely to cause weight gain or low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). januvia should not be used in patients with type 1 diabetes

a memorial service for steven sotloff will be held at a miami temple this afternoon. the dwofer has ordered all flags to be at half staff today to honor the jurmt killed by isis. isis seems to be taking a page out of the hollywood playbook. >> it's a slick horrifying video, with hollywood-like production techniques. this is the opening of that video p created by isis, showing steven sotloff's execution. >> we will be vigilant and we will be relentless. >> look familiar. this is the clip from the opening of showtime's trauma
7:38 am
"homeland." similar phrase, similar grainy video effect. >> there's no coincidence here. this is western media production personnel for isis drawing on their knowledge of western popular culture to not only get our attention but kind of stick it to america. >> one isis video has a scene similar to one in the film the hurt locker. an isis drone video looks early like a scene from 0 dark 30, but strankly enough these productions could harm isis. in this video showing syrian soldiers being led to the desert to their executions. a man holding a camera and another driving. >> western intelligence looks at this frame like this is someone's face. you can see that it's
7:39 am
right-handed but given there are so many western easy involved in the slick isis propaganda machine on social and digital media, one of the things to be looking at is this is one of the westerners. >> cnn has learned that an american from boston who is on the most wanted list has now joined isis and whether he may be behind some of its social media campaign. >> these groups themselves understand that you need to get somebody who understands the vernacular, if you like, you need somebody who knows what images are going to appeal. >> how effective has the campaign been? effective enough that the u.s. has countered. a new video told they can learn new skills, much of the rest of the video is too graphic to show you. all right. i believe we have a statement
7:40 am

back to that breaking news we told you about at the top of the hour, that ukraine and pro russian rebels have agreed to a cease-fire and we believe it's the real deal. in fact the ukrainian president talked about it a short time ago. here's what he had to say. >> we expect in the very near future to release the hostages. most troibl should -- probably should happen tomorrow and we are ready to provide significant steps including the decentralization of power, and including donetsk and luhansk region, guaranteed their right to use any languages in, and including amnesty, which

7:46 am
he walked on to the plane. >> he walk on to the plane. cnn chief medical correspondent dr. sanjay gupta joins me now. does chef reason to be positive? >> i think, so. i mean, obviously walking on the plane, the fact that you can simply walk on the plane is a very encouraging sign more like dr. kent brantly than nancy write bs bol. they both recovered. we know he's in nebraska. he's in this isolation unit there. he's been able to community using cell phones and intercom system. it's obviously a very favorable sign. >> could he be treated with that special serum that the other doctors were treated or the doctor and the aid worker were treated with? >> zimapp and the answer is no
7:47 am
because there's no more of it left. remember, it was unusual, it had never been used before. it was a little bit of a hail mary about trying to get it out to the people. about seven people were out to receive the medications. there's no more of it left. there are other medications out there that may be available to him and we know that the doctors in nebraska are looking into that as well. i should point out that there's a lot of people who survive and do very well without any of those experimental therapies, 50% or so, and we don't know just how much these therapies do yet in humans because they haven't been studies so he's going to have other options besides just something experimental. >> all right. thanks so much. we appreciate it. you can watch dr. gupta on cnn over the weekend. soops
