one of the oldest beauty schools in the country... was forced to permanently shut down. ((kirsten joyce)) this follows an investigation by the department of education... which uncovered "serious violations" at marinello school of beauty campuses across the u-s... including three right here in nevada. the allegations include the school requesting federal aid for students... based on invalid high school diplomas. now hundreds of students don't know what the future holds for them: (( gary landry/nv board of cosmetology: "they are going to take more hours and whether they are funded for that or pay out of pocket that's going to be another thing they are going to face.")) ((kirsten joyce)) landry says the students who are the students who are hurting the most... are those midway through the program. /// ((brian loftus)) > the downtown community came together... to fill back up the love locket statue... in downtown container park. a few weeks ago... several thieves stole a piece of the sculpture. people bought 10-dollar metal hearts, putting love messages on them... and locked them up on the giant heart. the money raised will be given

4:35 am
club international convention is in town... and 20,000 members and vendors are meeting to talk about the business of trophy hunting. ((brian loftus)) while they're here, they will auction the rights to hunt hundreds of animals on several continents. in this edition of street talk commentary... george knapp looks into the safari club's posted agenda. ((george knapp)) >the safari club is in las vegas this week, offering fun for the whole family, that is, if your whole family likes to kill animals. mostly, it seems, the fun is reserved for dads....dads with wads of money to spend. the annual convention is a huge money maker for the safari club because they auction off the chance to kill all kinds of animals all over the world.
4:36 am
as the average joe with a hunting license. based on the costs, i'd guess a lot of them are bankers, ceo's, lawyers, and physicians. a trip to kill deer in texas is valued at 52,000 dollars...if you want to kill deer in new zealand, that will run you about 90,000... a cape buffalo in tanzania costs about the same as a sable in south africa...right around 58 grand....and if you'd like to gun down bears in alaska...both brown and black, that's worth a cool 80 g's. chump change to a wall street guy who wants a fierce head on his wall. oh, you can also bid on a 100,000 dollar pair of mammoth tusks, but what's the fun in that? the mammoth is already dead. the highlight of the convention is the seminars where studly alpha males learn all about the beauty and majesty of killing all kinds of critters...there s one on how to bag more on gutless gutting....and one on why shooting elephants is really good for the elephants. let's see a show of tusks.
4:37 am
anyone? the title of this one mentions "complete penetration". i wondered if maybe it was designed to help hunters cope with those long lonely nights on the serengeti, but it's about how to make sure your arrow goes all the way through the body of a lion or leopard. there are daily sessions on how to encourage more women to pull the trigger. made me wonder if the organizers have thought this through because the women who've told me what they think of safari club might aim at something other than wild game..... this is an excellent course...what wine to pair with your dead prey. . say you're a dentist who's just poached and beheaded a beloved and protected lion. you don't want to drink white or rose when you toast your conquest. that calls for a bold red. the most interesting seminar is one that teaches how to answer the critics of trophy hunting. trophy hunting is moral, virtuous, and honorable the instructor says. the instructor is a lawyer, and if he can convince people that
4:38 am
and virtuous, he should be working for bill cosby, not teaching a seminar. i get the idea of hunting for food. and also to prevent disease or overpopulation. but i dont get the thrill of traveling to the other side of the planet to shoot a lion or a rhino or an elephant just so you can put its head on your wall and prove to your buddies what a studly dude you must be. trophy hunters will argue that they support conservation and local economies. but studies show that in the long run eco- tourists will spend a lot more to see animals that are alive than dead. and i'm not convinced that these hunters are spending this much dough because they really care about the economic well being of africans. one other seminar caught my attention,,,how scent stimulates the reproductive cycle....trophy hunters should pay attention because when the women in their lives realize what they're up to, this seminar might be the last time they get anywhere near the reproductive cycle.

police officer is going viral... for a very sweet reason. a security camera captured him babysitting a busy toddler... while her father was in traffic court. as daniel woodruff reports... it was just like any day with his kids. this little girl is on the move. "she's active - let's just say that. she was very active." a familiar sight to officer kevin norris sitting nearby. (officer kevin norris, orem police department) "i've got kids myself...boy i know what it is to have rambunctious kids, ya know and it's hard to take them

anywhere was traffic court last wednesday. norris was waiting to testify and 2yr old abi was with her father. (officer kevin norris, orem police department) "i could see the father corralling that little girl a little bit and trying to keep her quiet. she's just obviously a little wild one." when it was time for her father to go in the courtroom, the little girl couldn't go in. (officer kevin norris, orem police department)"yeah, absolutely i felt bad for him." so officer norris volunteered to baby-sit. (officer kevin norris, orem police department) "he didn't know what to do so i took the girl by the hand and walked around and we went and got a drink and took giant steps - baby steps. kind of the same thing i do with my own kids." then, the 6-foot-6 police officer pulled out some magic. (officer kevin norris, orem police department)"kids love videos. they love movies so we just watched cartoons on my phone and she was out before we knew it." sleeping soundly until dad came out to pick her up. jose moncayo was pleasantly surprised. (jose moncayo, father) "i don't know what he's doing - the office,r but he's good job. good job." i told officer norris

like most 22-year- olds anitha (uh- neeth-uh) benjamin spends a fair amount of time on social media. (anitha benjamin/22- years-old) "i use my linkdin, i use facebook, i use instagram, all that stuff." but when the college graduate started looking for a job last year she was careful about what she posted. (anitha benjamin/22- years-old) "i was thinking that i should definitely keep it professional because it's all online and everyone can see everything that you are posting." and new research shows that's a good idea because businesses are looking. a report from the society for human resource management finds one third of companies have disqualified a job candidate in the past year because of information found on their social media accounts. in another survey, officeteam asked hiring managers the most common social media mistakes job applicants make. 45 percent said posting negative or inappropriate comments 35 percent said posting or being tagged in inappropriate photos. (dawn fey/district pres., officeteam) "if you are too

could really come off to some individuals that you could be a problem in the workplace." (hena daniels/cbs news/new york) and if you think staying offline is the answer.. think again. 17 percent of hiring managers questioned job applicants who didn't post regularly or didn't have a social media profile at all. (anitha benjamin/22- years-old) "the way people perceive us is very important." having a professional presence online worked for benjamin. she recently got a corporate job.. her first out of college. hena daniels, for cbs news, new york.
