5:02 am
obama and vladimir putin talked briefly about the situation in ukraine, and he wasn't the only one. >> petro poroshenko, the new ukrainian president, also spoke with the russian president. it was their first meeting since russia annexed the crimean peninsula. chip reid is in our washington bureau with more. >> reporter: good morning. during the d-day ceremonies in normandy, it appeared that first that obama and putin were going out of their way to avoid even looking at each other. but after a ceremonial lunch, president obama initiated a conversation. it was brief and informal but the white house called it a positive development. in france to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the d-day invasion, president obama and russian president putin met informally friday for about 15 minutes. it was their first meeting since the violent conflict in eastern ukraine began. a senior white house official said president obama told putin that de-escalating tensions
5:03 am
depends upon russia ceasing support for separatists in eastern ukraine and stopping the provision of arms and materiel across the border. the president said this friday about his relationship with the russian leader. >> we generally have a businesslike relationship and are very candid and blunt with each other. there are areas where there has been great cooperation between the united states and russia. but on this particular issue of ukraine, we have a deep difference. >> reporter: putin also met with ukraine's president-elect petro poroshenko, a billionaire businessman who's accused putin of fomenting the violence by supporting the pro-russian insurge ens. after the meeting putin said he agreed with poroshenko's call for an immediate cease-fire. but he also denied any responsibility for the fighting claiming that the two sides during the negotiations should
5:04 am
not be russia and ukraine because russia is not a participant in this conflict a position that u.s. officials say is completely at odds with the facts. >> i think there is a great deal of hard evidence that russia is involved, deeply involved with the separatists. we have long seen credible reports of russian soldiers operating without insignia in ukraine. >> reporter: white house officials said president obama was more optimistic about ukraine than he had been before the meeting, but they also downplayed expectations noting that putin's words are often inconsistent with his actions. they said we'll learn more about his real intentions in the coming weeks. vinita? >> chip reid in washington this morning, thank you. and there simply could not have been a more dramatic backdrop for the meeting between obama and putin. the 70th anniversary of normandy's invasion brought more than a dozen leaders together alongside them the dwindling number of veterans that that momentous occasion.
5:05 am
>> reporter: if it's the sincerest form of flattery there was menplenty of it. squint a little and this could have been 70 years ago on utah beach except for the lack of incoming fire. but these weren't americans. they were french and dutch and spanish headed where the 82nd airborne held up for a month with roland daniel among them. >> we were in 35 days. so you can imagine the amount of people we lost. and i just never dealt with it. so this is helping me. >> reporter: it was a chance to be thanked for what they had done by some of the world's most famous people. the british queen. the american president. the german chancellor.
5:06 am
angela merkel was applauded. times have changed in 70 years. ♪ and some things like the camaraderie of combat have not changed. dan mccarthy was back on omaha beach at dawn. >> i'm so filled with joy right now now. >> reporter: jack schlagel was happy to be back too, probably for the last time. >> the president of the legion of honor society in america said we want you there for the 75th, but i don't know. my mind is here but i don't know if the rest of my body. >> reporter: this anniversary is a tribute, as they all are, to the greatest generation the one that fought in world war ii. but that generation is now pushing or into its 90s. the sad fact is that there will
5:07 am
be fewer and fewer around for the next big anniversaries. which is what made this one so special. mark phillips cbs news, on omaha beach. we're following breaking news this morning out of iraq where militants have stormed a university and are holding dozens of students hostage. the university is near ramadi in the troubled province of anbar west of baghdad. iraq is in the grip of some of the worst violence since the sectarian fighting of 2006 and 2007. sergeant bowe bergdahl remains in a german hospital said to be improving from his ordeal. he arrived there on sunday for treatment after being released in a prisoner swap for five taliban leaders. that has become a political firestorm. a congressional hearing on the release is scheduled for next week. the bergdahl story will of course be a topic tomorrow morning on "face the nation" including diane type steenne feinstein,

5:09 am
no reports of injuries or severe damage. investigators in north georgia are trying to determine why a man showed up for a court date yesterday with his car packed with guns ammunition and explosives. he started shooting the moment he arrived. mark strassmann picks up the story. >> reporter: the gunfight outside a county courthouse lasted three minutes. this video was taken by a construction worker across the street. if hacker began firing and detonated smoke bombs. one deputy was shot during the battle. the suspect identified as dennis marks was killed. sheriff duane piper says it took eight officers to bring him down. >> he had body armor on. he was throwing tear gas grenades, smoke grenades and pepper spray grenades. he also had a gas mask on. he came prepared to do this.
5:10 am
>> reporter: and he may have been prepared to take hostages. >> he also had flex cuffs ready to apply to people. he had water supply and he had all kinds of ammunition on him. >> reporter: police say dennis marks was supposed to be in court to face drug and weapons charges. police described marks as a member of the sovereign citizens movement, an anti-government group that the fbi considers a top domestic terrorist threat. investigators believe marks' house may be booby-trapped with explosives. recent training for a similar attack for stopping the assault. police say by the type of explosives they found in marks' suv, he had been planning this attack for days. for "cbs this morning saturday," mark strassmann georgia. a hazardous material incident sent at least 27 people to hospitals in southern california. they were overcome by an odor from an unknown substance in a trailer last night in a trucking warehouse. authorities are trying to
5:11 am
determine what the substance was. one report says the location is a distribution center for walmart and sam's club. general motors is recalling more than 89,000 vehicles. the recall involves air bags that won't deploy and it's for the 2012 buick murano chevrolet camaro and cruze. one person was injured. the other part of the recall involves a warning system that tells the driver if a door is open or a seat belt isn't buckled. it affects 2014 chevrolet silverado and gmc sierra tahoes suburbans, sierra hds, yukons and yukon xls. a good if not great jobs report for may. employers added 217,000 jobs last month holding the unemployment rate steady at 6.3%. it was the first time since 1999 that we've added at least 200,000 jobs for four straight months.
5:12 am
so why aren't economists celebrating? joe doe is an economics analyst for good morning. >> good morning. thanks for having me. >> so we're back to where we were in 2008 which means we've socially had six lost years. right? >> right. we're back to all the jobs we lost in the great recession. but economists aren't cheering and most of middle america probably isn't either. wages went up by about 2.1% year over year from last may. but economists are saying the kind of wage growth that we want to see, that this would be a robust economic recovery or recovery at least in the jobs -- the jobs market is about 3% to 4%. so sure 200,000 jobs for the past four months looks great, first time since the clinton administration, but hey, right now people across america pretty much between the coasts are asking why haven't i gotten a raise? why am i not seeing bonuses? >> we're six years into this recovery. >> it's also fascinating because was bench mark was from six years ago, and yeltt we've had had
5:13 am
other factors change things. which sectors seem to have done the best? >> overall if you look at the grand scheme it is the private services sector. we have seen the biggest growth there which is a positive but where we didn't see really good growth in may and this is something that's recurring is in manufacturing and construction jobs. so construction jobs when you look and you compare to when we started adding jobs in october of 2010 construction came in, it was about the 26th best month we've seen in the recovery. that's in the 41st percentile right? and then if we're looking in the manufacturing sectors, the 23rd best which is the 48th percentile. okay sounds like it's decent but again, we're expecting in previous generations, we've seen recoveries where oh great, we're actually seeing meaningful improvement in our wages, and we're seeing far more jobs added that also didn't start at such a low level. i mean 2008 we're still feeling those effects. >> you mentioned wages and how they have barely moved upwards
5:14 am
which is obviously important because two-thirds of the economy is driven by consumer spending. if they don't have more money, they're not going to spend. but why are wages essentially stuck, and why have they been stuck for a while? >> there's a word the fed likes to use in talking about money velocity. everybody said we're pumping all of this money from the monetary system into basically the hands of the banks, and we're trying to improve money velocity. we're trying to get people to start spending more. the problem is that we're not seeing the kind of lending from the banks that we had expected. and a large part of this is people aren't going out and spending the money that they have. they still don't feel like they have enough expendable income that right after they pay the bills, right after they pay the rent, okay great, i'm going to go out and buy another ipod or another television set. and so when people aren't spending their money, it suggests that well businesses aren't seeing the demand. and so they're not going to be hiring more people because they're not seeing the demand from the consumer sector. >> what about the labor force participation rate that number that tells us who's actively
5:15 am
employed, who's fully looking. it was unchanged in may. what does that mean? >> unchanged in may, in this situation i think we're kind of happy to see that it didn't go lower, right. this could be cyclical. this could also be the situation we're facing right now in the united states. there are a number of baby boomers who continue to exit the labor force. and some of them may be a little bit earlier than they had expected to. they have been saying i'm looking for work. i was talking to a recruiter yesterday who said people sit around for two three years and finally they said i'm just going to take a job at home depot, but a lot of them aren't even doing that. they're just saying you know what? i'm getting out of this labor force. it's not even worth my time right now. >> well they're good numbers even though we're not celebrating. thank you so much. today is the 146th running of the belmont stakes. the third leg of the horse racing's triple crown. only 11 horses have ever won it. the last was affirmed back in 1978. but california chrome, the out-of-nowhere colt is favored
5:16 am
at number 12. later, we'll take a closer look at how this remarkable horse has done it and his chances today. we're just five days away from the start of the months-long extravaganza that captive taitates most of our soccer-crazy planet called the world cup. it's in brazil. joshua robinson is a london-based sports editor. he departs for rio de janeiro on monday. i'm envious. today he's here with a tournament preview. good morning. >> good morning. thanks for having me. >> this is absolutely how long in the huge in the rest of the world, isn't it? >> lots of places in going to grind to a halt especially the beginning of the tournament where you've got 48 games in 15 days. we're talking about the ncaa tournament for two weeks. >> it's fascinating to watch the headlines including that this is a billion-dollar industry for
5:17 am
fifa. what are the headlines you're seeing especially in brazil right now? >> well, you've got a country that's very divided about hosting this tournament. the approval rating for the tournament keeps dropping. fifa badly overreached, and brazil badly overreached. you only need eight venues to host the world cup, but brazil at this time it won the bid, was doing well. said look, we're a huge country. we're the home of soccer. we're going to build 12 stadiums. what you've got now is up to three that aren't fully ready for the tournament. >> this surprises me because first of all, there's $500 million in prize money for the world cup. but brazil spent something like $14 billion. and you know how much brazil -- we know how much brazil loves soccer. you thought they'd embrace this. >> the problem is you know there's still major gaps in social programs and things like that in brazil. and especially if brazil goes out early, i think we'll see a lot of problems of hey, we put up with all of this for seven years for the rest of the world to come party. >> well speaking of who goes
5:18 am
out early, spain won the world cup in south africa four years ago. what do you think? is there a possibility there could be a repeat for them? >> it would be historic. the last country to repeat was brazil in 1962. we haven't seen this in half a century. but they are far and away the best technical team out there. but they have huge competition from other european teams, especially germany. plus we've never had a european team win a world cup in south america in four times that it's happened. >> that's really interestin. let's talk about the usa here. it's never a good sign when you're in a bracket that's called the group of death. >> it's a little ominous. >> so it looks like an uphill battle. we're in with germany, portugal and ghana. >> 2006 and 2010 ghana knocked out the u.s. now we're having to face germany and portugal which has a guy you may have heard of named kris edd
5:19 am
christiano ron nall ronaldo. he won the world cup in 1990 but he's pretty americanized. he's been in the u.s. for over 15 years. he even dropped the umlat from his first name. >> i was in a restaurant where there were people from all over the world, and everybody was focused on the television. and there was, you know just constant screaming and shouting. what's the scene we're going to expect over the next couple of weeks in europe? >> in europe the timing of the world cup is perfect for europe because we're talking about games at 5:00 at night, 7:00 at night, even 11:00 and midnight. a lot of pubs in england had to request special permission to stay open later past 12:30 so they could show the games, have people partying watching the games and rooting for england. >> it really is fascinating. i even read google is doing street-view tours. so a lot of people have a chance to see it from a lot of

5:31 am
the list. they show no signs of slowing down. >> reporter: california is a state known for its woodlands. and while the majestic redwoods along the northern coast tend to get most of the attention, it's the trees in the southern part of the state that are now under attack. >> we have lost. jim folsom is is the director of the gardens outside pasadena california. >> on property in this 200 acres, we have over 700 species of large trees. fully one-third, over 200 different kinds, different species of trees, have proven to be invaded or impacted by this borer. >> reporter: that borer is a tiny beetle first discovered in the area two years ago. it drills a hole into the heart of the tree and deposits a fungus that it carries in its mouth. that blocks water and nutrients
5:32 am
and in many cases kills the tree. >> you can see the beetle and then this is the discoloration caused by the fungus that they are carrying. >> reporter: they first discovered the pests in avocado trees. they have since spread to 280 different species in southern california. and he fears could be unstoppable. >> the main problem is this is an invasive exotic beetle which means we don't have any established natural enemies that could keep this population down in southern california. >> reporter: he and his colleagues tracked the bug to southeast asia but are still unsure how it got to the u.s. >> here this is the beetle. >> we have no known treatment. we have no capacity to fend it off. >> reporter: while the infestation is a concern at huntington gardens, it has the potential to create a nationwide crisis as the beetles spread
5:33 am
into residential neighborhoods. tinder-dry forest land and most worrisome, agricultural plants. >> if you cannot stop it it can go as far as the beetle and fungus can survive. >> reporter: for cbs this morning saturday danielle nottingham, los angeles. >> they're so small but they do so much damage. they say when they get inside the tree they're actually protected from the insecticides and that's how they avoid it. >> you say small. i think i read it was the size of a sesame seed. that makes you realize how much destruction, even worse than a termite. now here is a look at the weather for your weekend. up next, medical news in our

it's time now for "morning rounds." joining us cbs news chief medical correspondent dr. john lapook and cbs news contributor dr. holly phillips. first up there was encouraging news this week about the fight against cancer. john? >> vinita one promising new approach doesn't use drugs or radiation. it uses the patient's own body to attack cancer cells. >> reporter: at 35 erica wallace learned she had advances cervical cancer that had spread to her lymph nodes. >> it just kind of became all
5:38 am
right, just deal with it. tell me what i need to do because i'm a mom and i need to be here for my boys. >> reporter: intensive chemotherapy did not work. the wallaces were told erica had about a year to live. >> i had to discuss what if i'm not here you know what's going to happen with the boys because i could feel i was getting weaker. and so i was pretty rock bottom at that moment. >> reporter: just two months later, she became patient number two in a small trial using the body's immune system to seek out and destroy metastatic conserveervical cancer. >> we completely rearrange the immune system. >> reporter: doctors take a piece of the tumor and extract specialized white blood cells or t-cells. those are tumor-fighting cells sent by the body's immune system to target the cancer. the t-cells most potent against cervical cancer are selected and grown in the lab. billions of these cells are then infused into the patient's bloodstream
5:39 am
bloodstream. >> the idea is to give a single treatment and have the cells wipe out the tumor the same way that they would clear an infection. >> reporter: six of nine patients in the study had no response, and one had a partial response. two had complete remission. >> hi. >> reporter: wallace was one of those two. this is a scan from her checkup last week. nearly two years after treatment, there is no sign of cancer. earlier this year her younger son, marcus had a chance to meet the research team. >> he looked at them and said thanks for saving my mom. and that's what it's done is saved me. >> what a great story. i mean this seems groundbreaking. >> yeah. and it's exciting for the future because this is -- cervical cancer is a so-called solid tumor, and we've traditionally not had a lot of luck treating widespread solid tumors. and the hope is to use this same technique for tumors of the
5:40 am
lung, breast and coallon. also promising news for men with advanced prostate cancer. a new study shows an older chemotherapy drug can significantly lengthen lives. holly, tell us about this study. >> anthony, this was a very long-term study. it went over ten years. and you know it really sort of turned our understanding of how to treat prostate cancer on its head. up till now, in fact for the last 75 years, the standard of treatment with metastatic prostate cancer has been to use a hormonal therapy. and then we only add chemotherapy if that doesn't work. this study showed if you add the chemotherapy earlier along with the hormoneal therapy, you can increase men's lives by almost 14 months. that's an incredibly long time. it's very impactful. >> i think most people hear the word "cancer" and they immediately think chemo. why was it not being used in the past? >> basically because we didn't have this data you know. it took a long time to get the data in part because men aren't enrolled in as many clinical
5:41 am
trials as women are. so our understanding of prostate cancer lags behind our understanding of say, breast cancer or some other conditions. but also the chemotherapy has side effects. so no one wanted to use it unless we knew for sure that it works. and now we know that. >> well, there's also some good news about preventing cancer this week. researchers at yale cancer center estimate that from 1976 to 2009 screening tests like colonoscopies prevented mother half a million cases of colorectal cancer in the u.s. a separate report says that worldwide the number of survivors of all kinds of cancer were increased by 30% over the next decade. a new report in the journal "pediatrics" raises troubling issues about kids and ads for e-cigarettes. the new study says that from 2011 to 2013 ads for the smokeless devices aimed at kids from 12 to 17 years old jumped more than 250%. during that same period e-cigarette ads targeting young adults from 18 to 24 spiked more than 320%.
5:42 am
the brand advertised most often is called blu. take a look. >> you know i love being single, but here's what i don't love. a kiss that tastes like an ashtray. bleck. i'm jenny mccarthy. i found an alternative to cigarettes. blu. i get to have a blu without the guilt because it's only vapor, not tobacco smoke. >> john where are kids seeing these ads? >> everywhere. they're all over the internet. they're on television. and they're on stations you'd expect with kids 12 to 17. so comedy music, events or shows. it's everywhere you look. >> what can a parent really do in this battle when they seem to be targeting these young kids? >> it's a major concern for parents really because the big question is are e-cigarettes a gateway drug into using regular cigarettes? and if you really don't have data to show whether they are or are not yet. but what we do know is nicotine is, of course, one of the most addictive substances that's out
