miles an hour and developed almost one month before the official start of the atlantic hurricane system. >> reporter: good morning. we're really beginning to see the effects of ana along the carolina coast. the wind is blowing with gusto. we have a light rain falling and the surf is really churning. a big concern this weekend, rip currents local officials are urging people to stay out of the water because of dangerous currents. we're expecting sustained winds around here at 30 miles an hour with gusts reaching 40 miles an hour or more certainly above tropical storm speeds. and as far as flooding goes local officials are not expecting widespread flooding. there could be localized flooding, 2 to 4 inches. one thing's for certain. it will be a windy rainy weekend
here on the carolina coast. for "cbs this morning." >> now let's get the latest on the forecast for today. here's ed curran from wbbm. good morning. >> good morning. we go from our tropical storm sitting off. throughout this entire area here. a slight chance. more enhanced chance in the orange areas that are through texas, oklahoma into western kansas into part of colorado. and a more moderate chance in this area. here in western kansas eastern colorado, into parts of oklahoma as well. that's a little more higher chance. a higher chance. through this region the largest chances in the enhanced area here this includes western
kansas parts of eastern colorado into oklahoma and down toward texas as well. the rest of the area at more of a slight risk for tornados. so severe weather today, a good day once again to stay in touch with the weather in your region. anthony? >> meteorologist ed curran at our chaugs staying wbbm. thanks ed. a 17-year-old was arrested in australia attempting to set off bottoms. three homemade bombs were found in the teenager's home on friday. police believe they were expected to be detonated tomorrow during a charity run. police don't believe there was any connection between this one and one last month in involving five teenagers. bases are now at force protection bravo defined by the pentagon as an increased and predictable threat of terrorism.
it's the defense department's third highest threat level. fbi director james comey says the islamists have sought to recruit hundreds if not thousands in the u.s. and hundreds are expected to go on attacks. juan zarate is in our washington bureau. good morning. >> good morning, anthony. >> the last time it was on a bravo level it was during the anniversary of 9/11. is there a threat? >> they are worried about the consistent serious and -- serious attempts by the islamic state to inspire and recruit for attacks. what is happening is the environment is ripe for radical individuals to attack in place. and what you see is that military targets have consistently been a target of choice to include information being put out by the islamic state about military officials and their families. so this is a concern about the
environment, a concern that the islamic state tries to inspire attacks and that's why you've seen this threat level increase. >> how then do you go about moderating and engaging what is a serious threat and what is something you have to have on the back burner? >> vip nita this has grown more dangerous and traverse. you've heard this from fbi director comey. they have investigations in all 50 states. first and foremost you have to look at those individuals who have traveled to places like syria and iraq and have contact with terrorist groups those who are communicating either directly or indirectly with terrorist groups or known terrorists and third those who are animated by the ideology. that's very difficult because you have those on the radar screen and those who may not be on law enforcement or intelligence community's radar yet. this is a difficult challenge for the counterterrorism community. >> social media is becoming a real problem here. the law enforcement keeps
talking about this. how is it's affectively changing the game? >> well quite dramatically, anthony. in three ways. they allow them to diversify the way they communicate, and so they don't have to do this from a central hub. they can have many people communicating in realtime. secondly they can do peer to peer recruitment. we sthau with somali americans being pulled into the battlefield in syria by a fellow peer. and then lastly and importantly for the threat we're talking about, perhaps peer to peer deployment. that is to say inspiring individualing to use social media to attack in place and this is changing the landscape. >> you mention inspiration. is it just inspiration or do you get the sense there's actual direction in these social media images? >> vinita i think it's a mix and i think that's what makes it a challenging part of our environment. what they've tried to do over time is inspire generally, get
people to attack in place in western areas in particular if they can't come and fight in seary or afghanistan. but they're also trying to where they can i think in spire particular individual and get them to attack in particular ways or particular times. so it's a mix of both broad inspiration and attempts to animate particular individuals to attack. >> all right. thanks, juan. juan zarate in our washington bureau this morning. >> an investigation is under way in atlanta where a single-engine plane crashed onto a freeway yesterday killing four people. they were flying a family celebration. as mark strassmann reports, the death toll could have been higher. >> reporter: the cell phone video shows the fireball moments before impact. the pilot radioed the tower right after takeoff. he was having trouble climbing. then he said going down. motorists saw the plane 25 feet in the air and struggling.
it burnt into flames as it struck the median. >> as i turned to get on 285, boom, impact. >> he saw the plane heading right for the semi as he was driving. >> it was like it was coming toward my windshield. by that time it came directly across my hood. >> it grazed his truck moments before crashing. >> i made my way out of the truck. by the time i got there it was blazed so bad there was nothing i could do. >> it's a piper that seats six. four people. they were heading to see another son's graduation tomorrow. fire captain eric jackson. >> right now faa and representatives of ntsb are here on the scene. they're tacking aking a look at the scene and all the parts. >> d briethe debris has been removed,
the highway reopened. what happened is unclear. for a pilot in trouble taking off, the highway is one of the only options. for "cbs this morning: saturday," mark strassmann atlanta. >> the notorious new york murder of a 6-year-old boy nearly 35 years ago in new york remains unsolved the morning. a judge declared a mistrial yesterday when jurors were deadlocked in the killing of etan pace. the suspect has confessed but there were doubts about his mental health. patz picture was featured on a milk carton. things got back in april and the latest jobs report is good. on friday the labor department said employers add 2ded 223,000 new jobs.
that pushed the unemployment rate down to 5.4% the lowest since may 2008. cbs business analyst jill schlesinger is here with the numbers. good morning. >> good morning. >> it's better than march, but the jobs market still has a lot of work to do, doesn't it? >> oh yes, absolutely. first of all, let's look at wages. we have not had wage growth in about 8 years. wages up 2.2% from a year ago. the last expansion we were going at 3% annualized clips so we need that number to really improvelet we still have a broad unemployment rate of 10.8%. this includes people who are called disgruntled, part-time workers. 10.8% historically high. sure, it's down but that's a lot of people. 6.6 million people working part-time. they want full-time help and we have people unemployed for over six months. good progress still work to do. >> let's talk about the interest rate.
it's been near zero since 2008. we get the sense the feds are going to move in june or september. when is it going to happen? >> i think it's going to happen in september. it's going to allow them to wait until september. they're very focused the wage component. they want to see people make more money and until that happens the fed is going to hold back. sorry for all the savers out there. you're still going to get stinky rates in your savings and checking account. >> we hear people moving to move wages but when does it kick in jill? >> i think it's in the next few months. last week we had interesting data. it's the one piece of economic data that actually has shown wage growth is starting to accelerate by about 2.6% from a year ago. that could be the telling point. economists are hopeful, but it's not going to be run away. we're going to get 2 1/2% year
over year. >> that's better than the rate of inflation. >> every time we see you i feel like baby steps. that's the key word. >> total employment up 11.7 million from the bottom. that's pretty good after having 9 million wiped out. we're making progress but still work to do. >> thank you so much. 70 years ago europe. yesterday a commemoration was held in washington with dozens of vintage planes flying over national mall. >> in england queen elizabeth lifted a series of bee cons 200 feet overnight. they symbolize the fire that went across the skies. they celebrate the end of nazis in germany and world war ii. charlie d'agata has more. good morning. >> good morning. the bells rang out across britain this morning, part of
three days of commemoration here and across much of europe but nothing comes more under way than in russia. about the only thing missing were the world war ii allies. a show of victory and for russia to show its military mite in one of its biggest military celebrations in decades. russia's military hardware rumbled across the square. 16,000 troops marshed in a lockstep parade. more than 100 military aircraft roared overhead. russia's allies that helped victory that day were nowhere to be seen boycotted by president obama and the leaders of britain and france in protest of moscow's meddling in ukraine. president vladimir putin was instead joined by chinese
president president. they lost 26 million soldiers and civilians in defeating the nazis, more than any other country. after more than six long years of bloodshed and hardship british prime minister winston churchill came on air in a historic speech announcing the end of the conflict. >> gentlemen, war is at an end. we may allow ourselves a brief period of rejoicing. >> rejoicing they did and it wasn't very brief. millions flooded the streets flooding piccadilly circus. a young princess there on the left joined churchill and her father the king on the balcony to greet thousands of well-wishers, and though the 70th anniversary of that day is a time to rejoice, it's also a time to reflect and remember
those lost. in paris they closed down to make way for the cavalry. they laid a wreath at the tomb of the unknown soldier. and here in britain this morning cathedrals and churches across the country rang out at precisely 11:00 a.m. signifying the end of the church bells that hung inilce during the war. now, there's a star-studded concert that will be held tonight not far from buckingham palace, and tomorrow a thousand veterans and their families will join the queen for thanksgiving service at westminster abbey. anthony? >> charlie d'agata in london. thach you, charlie. the "washington post" says a former energy department employee has been indicted for attempting to get nuclear secrets from a u.s. data base and then sell them. federal prosecutors say an undercover sting uncovered
e-mails the worker sent to current staffers. they were embedded with malicious software. charles ecclestone could face up to 50 years in prison if convicted. pro-russian separatists have rescued two. both were captured in an aid office in donnette. they're healthy and now in a safe location. the department of defense has paid the national football league almost $5.5 million to 14 teams. it's a so-called thank-you for the solder s eriersoldiers' service. the national guard defends the practice and says it's an effective tool for recruitment. the courier post says just in time for summer. a great white shark has surfaced along the coastline.
her name is mary lee. she's been wearing a tracker since a nonprofit put it on her in 2012. 16 feet long and 35,000 pounlsd. beachgoers can follow her movements on twitter where anthony mason is following her. >> one of 22,000 mary lee has. "forbes" magazine says they have compiled the most popular names. noah and emma are the respective winners. mason, very good choice was the third most popular boys' name and charlotte as in the new princess born last saturday. >> if only your parents had done mason mason. >> i'm glad they didn't do that. it's about 22 after the hour. now here's a look at the weather for your weekend.
coming up concerns about whether cell phone towers could survive the next big earthquake. we'll show you how los angeles is now trying to be the first to secure service in case of emergency. travelers beware. bogus websites are stealing reservation deposits and leaving millions of people with no hotels. we'll tell you,000 avoid the scammers. you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday."
is this a new form of piracy? >> it is. it was a little unexpected and a big deal. >> isn't the picture wobbly and shaky? i can't imagine it's great picture. >> yes. what people are doing is taking images of their tv screen and blasting it out to the world. of course, it's going to be a little shaky, a little wobbly. but this is a world where we're used to watching shaky and wobbly. >> what action can they take? >> it is a copyright violation. if you film tv and make a copy, that's a problem. that do it consistently. then it's a violation of what
you agreed to but it's not as clear it's a copyright violation. >> it's been happening in movie theaters for a while. they take a movie camera and sell it as a dvd. >> this is a little different. this is the real threat. you would take your cell phone in, film it on opening night and everyone would watch it sigh simultaneously simultaneously. >> how do they stop it? >> well the best way to stop it is to work with the company and say, look pair schoop this can't happen. you need to stop this develop algorithms. what usually happens with social media platforms like this. in the beginning they're kind of cavalier, they let it happen because it lets the system grow. presumably that will happen with meerkat and periscope. >> and ahead, twitter said and the winner is periscope. what do you think of that? >> that was the most insane thing about the whole thing. the ceo of twitter, a mature company, they're trying to make deals with these people he was out there praising this. that was nuts.
in california cross drivers at railroad crossing. cell phone videos shows a train stop at the intersection with one of the workers inside a restaurant buying lunch. >> all that was recorded by an angry driver who had to wait a couple of minutes for the worker to get back on. i'm glad there was no audio. they promised to take disciplinary action against the employee. a big one will strike los angeles in the next 30 years. many retro buildings will survive a big quake but how about cell phone towers. >> they're the first in the
nation to take effect. >> reporter: cell phone towers are as popular as palm trees. sometimes they're disguised to look like palm trees. they want to make sure mobile phones still work in l.a. when the next massive earthquake comes calling. >> why is that important? >> it's super important. it's not a question of if. it's when. we know that communication is reooe essential for recovery and resiliency. >> reporter: when an earthquake shook japan in 2011 people were left without an effective way to communicate. that same year an earthquake shook washington, d.c. and overwhelming its mobile network. that's why they're requiring new cell phone towers not only to survive but to keep functioning. >> back in '94 when we had the
north ridge earthquake cell phones were just beginning. now people have cut their landlines loose and their only means is cell phones. >> reporter: public buildings are already retrofitted to withstand a big jolt. bloomfield wants to make sure they can communicate with each other after the earthquake. >> they going to be fortified. ire going have a stronger foundation. they're going to be, you know, better connected to the ground. >> the ordinance could be enacted as soon as this month without much pushback from kel cellular

innovation and you. philips sonicare. time now for "morning rounds" with dr. jon lapook and cbs contributor dr. holly phillips. first up with more than 100,000 americans waiting for a kidney transplant many people are joining donor chains to get their loved ones new organs. five members recently came together for an emotional
reunion in mt. sinai, new york. >> i went in to help my mom and to be able to help someone else is just amazing. >> holly we everybody been've been hearing about those donor chains. how does it work? >> you know how some of those genius ideas is simple at its core? i think this is one of those cases. the way it works, let's say you needed a kidney and your brother said i will give you one of mine. even though he's your brother, he might not be a good match as a donor for you. a couple of things have to line up including blood type and certain genes call hla. if those genes don't match perfectly, you're at risk for rejecting the organ or kidney. the way the chain works, your brother would still donate a kidney on your behalf but it would go to a complete stranger. in return you would receive a kidney from a complete stranger that's a better match for you and the chain keeps going.
>> i read they have hospitals that have computer algorithms that set these things up. how important is that? >> that's part of the national kidney registry which is making this work so well. they have data on all the people who need kidneys and on a lot of the donors but this is really important because sadly there are many more people in need of an organ than there are donors, so this is really broadening out the pool as people who can potentially donate and it's also making matches better. so even if you have someone who's willing to give you a kidney, this helps you get the kidney that's the right match for you and it's a really big bat >> you mentioned there are people waiting for hearts, liver livers, and lungs. how do you get more people to donate? >> this is huge. 21,000 people die every day waiting for a transplant. there's a bunch of things that have been proposed. right now you have a driver's license. i signed the back of mine and i went online and got this organ
donation signup sheet. it takes five minutes to do. in israel they have app idea. if you want to donate you'll move up to list to receive one. the most important example is this opt-in opt-out. right now we have opt-in. you have to specifically say want to be a donor. >> you think it should be reverse. >> well, opting out basically saying you assume that you do want to be a donor unless you say you don't want to. and i can say from a personal experience with a patient, i have the patient's permission to tell this story. he was in italy. hi had a heart attack. he was brought to a local hospital and he was in desperate condition. he was really in danger of dying and he needed a heart transplant. at his age in the united states it would have taken 275 days on average for him to get a heart. in italy he got a new heart in 12 days.
12 days because they have opt-out. and when a 25-year-old man had an accident he got that heart. i think it's something to think of. we have a lot of ingenious people, clever people and we should figure out a way to just get this done. well, a new cdc report finds many americans are not getting recommended cancer screening testing. according to reports, 20% of women are not up to date with their cervical cancer screenings. nearly 25% say they haven't had a mammogram on schedule and nearly 40% of adults have not been recently screened for colorectal cancer. they found adults without insurance or health care had the lowest screening tests. spring is in full bloom meaning runny noses and itchy eyes for millions of americas. experts call this year a pollen tsunami. it's been especially bad in new york, i've noticed. why a pollen tsunami.
>> very dramatic. i'm not sure we're at the tsunami level yet because it's really the first week. i don't need a tsunami label to tell me it's a bad week. i found myself walking my very cute dog ash. my wife kate usually does, but this week, no way. she walked into the park itchy eyes watty nose and itchy mouth. this is what people are seeing. what's happening is we had a very cold long winter. plenty of water so the trees are now issued. the tree pollen has been delayed. instead of coming out a little bit and increasing it's just hitting us. >> a pollen dump. >> i get the sense then are we at the beginning then or at the worst already, did it all come out at once? where are we? >> it seems it may, in fact get worse because as john was saying, the tree pollen was delayed, so it's sort of all coming out at once and a little bit later in the season than
usual some of in the summer, early summer grass pollen starts to amp up followed by weeds. ragweed. so it might be this year that we see the tree pollen overlapping with the weeds and the grass pollen, which, you know if you're sensitive to all of them could be marks in fact a tsunami. maybe then we'll use that term. >> there's an app you can get. i want to plug one in a few seconds. it tells you what the various counts are. so the tree pollen count is moderately high in new york city but the grass hasn't started yet. >> what are you supposed to do when the counts get this high? >> commonsense things. when outside cover your head with a hat, wear sunglasses if you have that. when you come inside the very first thing you should do after you get inside is to take off your hat, take off your clothes, jump in the shower. you come inside figuring i'm away from the shower. no, you're just showering yourself with it. get into a real somehow jeer
finally users of online dating apps and sites are accustomed to seeing profile pictures that are, shall we say, enhanced. but a new study finds men and women have very different reactions to these spruced up photos. they've shown 300 participants both normal and beautiful feed. both men and women say it increased attractiveness, but the men say they decreased trustworthiness. for women it was quite the opposite. >> so interesting. >> have you seen these? i was toying around with one of these apps the other day. they are so powerful you can start out -- they peel back the years. you can start out looking like betty white and in a few clicks you're miley cyrus. it's unbelievable. very very powerful. >> the author explained what may be going on is the guys see it and they're faking the images so i trust them less. but at the same time it makes them want to date them more.
emotional intelligence of men. they're cognitively thinking one thing but they're making decisions in a different part of their anatomy. >> for me it says it's time to change my profile. >> dr. jon lapook, dr. holly phillips next. up next, travel editor peter greenberg. 000 protect yourself from bogus travel websites that are looking more and more legit. this is "cbs this morning: saturday." ♪ ♪ you and me, we could be bare footin' ♪ ♪ we'll certainly get around, ohh ♪ the ultimate do-over for wood and concrete. don't replace, resurface. behr premium deckover. exclusively at the home depot. moms know their family's mouths often need a helping hand. after brushing listerine® total care helps prevent cavities strengthens teeth

hotel. they affect 2.5 million travelers every year. congress has asked the attorney general to investigate. peter greenberg joins us now with more. good morning. >> good morning. >> it's interesting. most of us have gotten a little bit smarter. it seems the scam artists have gotten smarter. >> any time you're on line. expedient is not always the best idea. americans are booking 480 hotel rooms a minute online. we are talking about revenue that will cost 220 million dollars that is somewhat questionable because the sites use the same logos as the regular chains. they may use the same photographs. they may use the same urls. but they are not the same website. >> on a smartphone it is so hard. you see the logo and you just assume. >> it comes up on search. if you are looking for a particular hotel, they come up
with paid ads, and it takes you to an inspect third-party website. >> not in terms of the kind of bed they wanted, amenities they wanted. how about their mileage programs. also may not be included. let me show you about a website. this is a website for hilton. the garden inn in bethesda. this is their real website. when we went online someone used the same photograph, same logo and same information in general. you have to make sure it doesn't take you to an independent reservation center. the second is the phone number. on the bogus website, the phone number was 644 or 844, not affiliated at all with hilton. >> this is illegal.
it has to be right? >> no these are not illegal web sites. but they are misleading and you have to be aware of them. >> you should look for what peter, when you're doing this? >> look for the logo with an actual website. the other thing you need to do have a conversation. it's okay to research a website online or research your hotel online but pick up the phone and call directly and say are you aware of this website. is this a legitimate service. am i going to get all the amenities amenities. >> is it just hotel? >> no. the next one is more insidious. the airline scam. you get a letter that says you have been selected to receive two tickets free in the continental united states. have you hear of american airways? these airlines do not exist. so when you call that 800 number
or toll free number you're routed to say, oh in order to get your tickets there's a service charge. we need your credit card. any time you're told you won something and it sounds too good to be true don't walk run. >> the rule is be careful and double-check everything. >> and have that conversation. >> peter, thanks so much for being with us this morning. >> you bet. >> coming up everyone knows the british music invasion was launched by the beatles. it turns out there are lots more surprises. that's next on "cbs this morning saturday". this portion sponsored by new flonase allergy relief. you are greater than your allergies. allergy relief. you are greater than your allergies.
our bodies react by over-producing six key inflammatory substances that cause our symptoms. most allergy pills only control one substance, flonase controls six. and six is greater than one. so roll down your windows, hug your pet dust off some memories, make new ones. new flonase. six is greather than one. this changes everything. across america, people are taking charge of their type 2 diabetes... ...with non-insulin victoza. for a while, i took a pill to lower my blood sugar
but it didn't get me to my goal. so i asked my doctor about victoza. he said victoza works differently than pills and comes in a pen. victoza is proven to lower blood sugar and a1c. it's taken once a day, any time. and the needle is thin. victoza is not for weight loss but it may help you lose some weight. victoza is an injectable prescription medicine that may improve blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes when used with diet and exercise. it is not recommended as the first medication to treat diabetes and should not be used in people with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. victoza has not been studied with mealtime insulin. victoza is not insulin. do not take victoza if you have a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2, or if you are allergic to victoza or any of its ingredients. symptoms of a serious allergic reaction may include swelling of face lips, tongue or throat fainting or dizziness,

phillip jan rim shah won the rights of finishing editing the film. good morning. >> good morning. >> the negative for the film was locked up in paris for years. you describe the welles' estate as a complete mess. how did you finally get your hands on it? >> i didn't describe it as a complete mess. he was a businessman and he left it in a state of disarray and there were some warring parties so it was a process of getting everybody focused on the task at hand. everybody wanted to see the film finished but everybody had a different idea how to do it. >> the topic of the film is interesting. is it art imitating life or life imitating art? how did it start out? >> it's both. semibographical. it's orson's take on filmmaking. it's a fascinating subject, his view on it. >> why ultimately did it get
tied up? one of the backers of the film was the brother-in-law of the shaw of iran who may have ended up controlling the negative. >> orson was self-financing so it was a long period. he would take acting jobs in between and then put more money into it. eventually he got a backer who was the brother-in-law of the shaw of iran and during the persian revolution his assets were seized and they tried to seize the negative. it was very convoluted and he had to go through a lot of obstacles to try to complete it. >> he finished editing 40 minutes of it. >> correct. he shot the entire film. he edited 40. he didn't have access to the negatives so he didn't have that at his proposal. the last ten years were to try to buy out the shaw and regain total control of the film so he would have access to all of the film and edit it his way. >> from what you've seen how good is the film? >> it's brilliant.
it's a fantastic script. >> it's about a director making a comeback? >> correct. that's where it's life imitating art and viers versa and the director dies in the film before finishing it. again, it's looking into the mirror. >> there's footage that you haven't even seen yet. >> correct. there's footage that orson himself hadn't seen which was part of the negative locked up in paris and so that's the process for us now is to scan everything in and to be able to look at the complete picture the way it was show and put it together using the 40 minutes and notes and screenplay of the blue print. >> you know how many people are so excited that this movie is going to be put out. were you able to look to any of the casts or any of them still around? >> absolutely. there are people who vn be around for all 45 years of it. peter big don vich and greg marshal and peter and marshall had a close relationship. peter was editing it in the '70s
in pete 'eers house. there were a lot of people around when he was working so that's of great help to us. >> you need $2 million to finish this. >> correct. >> you went to crowd funding. >> correct. he always wanted to retain control and of course we want to release it through traditional means of distribution, but if we're able to finish it ourselves and bring the public and appeal to orson's fans to do it i this think the product is going to be even stronger. >> do you have a tentative air date? >> we want to do it this year. it wasn't by design. it just happened that -- i've been on this for six years and when i started i never set my sights on 2015. it just happened they. and it was orson's 100th birthday on wednesday, the 6th so it's all very special that it worked out this way. we're appealing to everybody out
there to help us reach our $2 million goal. >> thank you so much for be withing. up next meet greg proos, the smartest man in the world who just wrote "the smartest book in the world." you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday." >> announcer: this portion sponsored by toyota. let's go places. camry. we just came from a birthday party. ohh, let me get you a new one. camrys are so reliable. yeah... and you gotta love that bold new styling. here you go. whoa! wow. those balloon towers don't make themselves. during toyota time, get 0% apr financing for 60 months on a bold 2015 camry. offer ends june 1st. for great deals on other toyotas, visit toyota.com. thanks jan. thanks jan. now you both have camrys. yeah! toyota. let's go places.

greg proops is an improv comic and podcaster and now an author. he's called the smartest man in the world so naturally his book is called "the smartest book in the world." published by simon and schuster, a division of cbs. good morning. >> good morning. >> you are now officially more inquisitive than all your bored friends. >> we try to inpune curiosity in people. you have to be curious. it's full of art and music and movies around all the stuff i like and talk about on my podcast. >> it's an interesting education. your background. >> well i didn't really finish college so that's probably the most interesting part. i'm from the bay area and i'm a
touring comedian all the time. so basically my education has been on the fly. >> you tell a lot of -- i mean this book is kind of all over. as you mention, you talk about film you talk about -- you talk about dictators, you talk about all kinds of stuff. what were you trying to do here? >> well i think people view it with a sense that you don't have to stick to the narrow parameters of your life and there's poetry in everything. there's a lot post officetry in the book and people go to their jobs and they kind of want to exist and survival is very hard and they have to work all day. i'm always here to remind people there's more to life than that. there's the moon and the stars. that's why i put in movies that i like and books that i like and how to steal artwork and how to steal vodka and all the fun things in life. >> people love your podcast, and by people i mean a lot of people. it's so high octane. how did you translate that into a book? was it hard? >> of course it was an onerous responsibility. being the kind of amazing genius that i am it was kind of
difficult for me in my humility to try to do that. i was trying to get my voice onto the page and kind of get that sense of fun and like you say, the high octane, high station stakes. it's much more fun if you care and i think that's what the book is about. caring about stuff. >> you talk about baseball and you care about baseball a lot. you sort of chapter it with a quote from the former yankees and mets manager. it's not that the managers have sex the night before game. it's that they stay out all night looking for it. where did your fascination from baseball come from? >> my dad took me to lots of games when i was little. we didn't have a lot in common but we had baseball and we didn't argue, you know what i mean? my task in the book as i say, was to try to make baseball interesting for people who aren't middle-aged guys. >> you talk a lot about satchel paige, who's not a white guy. >> no.
he pitched in the negro leagues when ball was segregated. he's one of the funniest people. we had a fact check never the book and the book was heavily fact checked. i said he pitched for a million years. the fact checker came back and said he did not pitch for a million years. said it's a joke. no one actually pitches for a million years. >> i want to hear about your relationship with women and weed. you say they are the future. >> yes, they are. >> it's an interesting discourse. they say you're a strong feminist wrchlt does all that come from and why do you see that in the future? >> it comes from my wife she's bled it into me. this country could use a woman leader desperately. i feel like if you cake care of women's economic parity and health care, everything follows after that. others see it the other way. it needs to be this way and that and arms race. i don't see it that way. i see respectingwomen as the
most important in the world. >> where does weed play into it? >> if they're going to make alcohol and cigarettes legal, why not make weed legal. i think it's critical and hypocritical. i think after colorado and washington and oregon and other states see what a giant money maker it is the decision will be do i want bridges and lights and road or do i want weed. that's one of the things of the future. >> one of the things you do in the book which i love is you make baseball teams to everything from movie bombshells to emperors. you've got tie beerians playing second base. >> people on the show would say who's your all-time roman emperor on the team so i make it on the spot. i put that down in the book. e feeling like everything could
be broken down. how do you make tyrannical deboll cal dictators funny. on the co-ligual behind the plate because that teenage mad man could handle ka hoenys. >> next could be the smartest movie. >> if they make it in hollywood i'd have to audition for myself. i'd be willing to do that but i'll settle for stephen colbert. >> sounds like a lot of fun. coming up card sharks versus a bluffing robot. >> computers have defeated the best chess player and jeopardy champion but can it bluff its way to victory over the best poker minds in the world? i'll have that story coming up on "cbs this morning: saturday."
the one thing that struck out to me, you said i want to write a truthful memoir. you talk about the women, the drugs, the stuff that didn't work. let's talk about marijuana. i never smoked marijuana so i'm curious what it does for you. you describe it as an old friend who has never betrayed you. >> i think you know it calms me down. i used to drink a lot. i used to smoke a lot of cigarettes. now i don't. >> mm-hmm. >> so i think substituting pot for cigarettes and alcohol, it was a smart choice. >> you say my love affair with pot became a long-term marriage. it was by far the smoothest of all my marriages. >> it's worked out so far. >> it's worked sought far. why be so open about your private life and your failed
marriages and everything? >> i don't know. i'm not ashamed of everything. i don't think my life has been that much better or worse than a lot of the other people i know. >> you said even as a little kid, music was always in your blood. you started out writing poetry and that sort of got you started. but music you said to this day, you're on the road i think 150 night as year. you don't see that as a burden. you see that as a blessing. >> i get so much out of playing music, there's a huge reward just playing music. and to be able to play for a big crowd who enjoy as what you're doing who would pay a lot of money to drive a lot of miles to come see you. so i think there's a great energy exchange that takes place with anybody, when anybody is performing for an audience. >> you also talk in the book about your battles with the irs. what happened? >> i had some bad advice and tomb the advice and wound up owing the irs a lot of money. >> 32 million. >> i think that's what it was.
in montana a wildlife visual. tourists with a mama bear and her three cubs. look at this. they're seen hustling away from mama bear and she's herding them. >> they sate's great to see animals like that. seeing them that close isn't. strategy games such as chess have long been waying to measure art fishlg intelligence. but researchers have shown a different and in some ways a more challenging game. poker. we're shown what happens when the chips are down.
>> now with the pockets 9, doug polk -- >> reporter: he's considered the best heads-up one-on-one no hold 'em player three on one. he bet his reputation he could beat carnegie melon's artificial intelligence super computer. >> have you had to change how you play? >> you're playing a cold-blooded killer. he's not scared. he's just computing. >> reporter: for the past two weeks polk and three other professional poker players each played 20,000 hands against cloudco at rivers casino in pittsburgh. >> this is like my little cubicle. every day punching into the computer. >> it's like a full-time job. >> i thought i didn't have a job. i'm a professional poker player. now i have a job. >> reporter: viewers from more than 100 countries watched
online. >> he raised 250. cloudco reraised more. >> is there bluffing going on with the computer? >> oh yes. the computer definitely bluffs and does all sorts of other tricks that human poker players know, but the key is we don't program in the bluffing so the algorithms themselves figures out the strategy how to bluff when to bluff, in what situations and so forth. >> are we missing something on the chessboard now? >> reporter: in 1997 the world watch and wondered when ibm's deep blue whose researcher originated at carnegie melon defeated the world's best chess player. bested "jeopardy" champion ken jennings. >> why is poker a better gauge of artificial intelligence than
say playing "jeopardy" or playing chess? >> in chess, it's a game of complete information. when it's your turn to movie, you know exactly what the state of the world is, what the state of the game is. in poker you don't. >> because people might say poker with a computer who cares. >> yes. so this is really -- to be able to assist humans and companies in interacting, let's say, in negotiation, wouldn't it be nice if you had an agent that's helped you strategizing the world when you need help buying a car or buying insurance. >> so i'm going to raise this up as usual and he reraises. >> he studied computer science in college before becoming an online poker pro. it turns out his education wasn't much of a help. >> you're the one human who is losing. >> i'm not going to hold that against you. >> i think i'm a winner. i've gone pretty unhappy. >> are you lucky you signed up
to play a computer? >> i'm happy that i came up here and i was able to be a part of the winning team. >> nice. got it through in the turn. >> reporter: well, not exactly. according to carnegie melon, the pros combined $732,000 lead makes it a statistical tie. the university plans to rewrite cloudco's algorithms. >> oh, he had the nuts. >> reporter: doug poke is aware that it's a mat ore time before the humans will have to fold. >> the sad end of the story is the robots take over and when the robot apocalypse comes, it will be a sad day. if now the humans lead and overall i think we're pretty strong. >> ooh, three of a kind. >> reporter: for "cbs this morning: saturday," suzanne koeppen, pittsburgh. we should mention those huge money bets were fake, but the players did get $100,000 to split. that's not bad. >> like the fact that the humans
still have the lead for now. >> for now, yeah. >> and now here's a look at the weather for your weekend. up next wheel meet chef george duran in our award-winning cooking segment "the dish." he has gone from radio and tv to his own show on the food network. stay tuned. you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday". now? can i at least put my shoes on? if your bladder is calling the shots ... you may have a medical condition called overactive bladder ... ...or oab you've got to be kidding me. i've had enough! it's time to talk to the doctor. ask your doctor how myrbetriq may help treat... ...oab symptoms of urgency frequency, and leakage.
