5:28 am
polls, is it in your judgment more rhetoric and bomb past than it is policy than it is specific public positions? >> yes. and i think what he's tapped into is that 90% of people are unhappy with washington. that's why i ran for office. i'm a position, i had never been involved in politics, i was able to beat an establishment politician because i ran against the machine. i still intend to do so. because 90% of people are unhappy. i think we need term limits, i would wash the whole place out. the whole place needs to be clean-swept and start over again. i've met almost every leader on the stage in washington, and there is no monopoly of knowledge up there. we need new people and one of the big proponents and one of the things i'll propose is we have term limits, i think we ought to send them all home, myself included. >> why has donald trump tapped into this rather than you according to the polls. >> he had a little bit of help. y'all covered him with about a

5:38 am
from and how it's contaminating so many people. >> do you have a sense they have it under control? >> not really. no, not really. >> city officials have linked the bacteria to five water cooling towers which are outdoor units used for air conditioning in large buildings. bronx councilwoman vanessa gibson is pushing for improved regulation of those towers. the outbreak has drawn scrutiny of public health oversight here in new york city's poorest borough. >> why do you think it is concentrated here? >> i think when you look at communities like mine in the south bronx where you have many residents that do notav form of primary care, many of these reported cases are individuals that have severe health problems already. >> so john, what's the latest? >> the cdc has actually sent a team of investigators here to new york city to figure out what exactly is going on. in the bronx they have cleaned those five cooling towers and they're warning people, especially the elderly, people with underlying immune problems or medical conditions, to be especially on the lookout. if you have a flu-like symptom.
5:39 am
if you have fever, cough, get help right away. it is treatable with antibiotics. a >> a new government effort aims to slow the spread of antibiotic resistant super bugs. the new approach against these could prevent 619,000 infections and save thousands of lives. >> this is a really interesting report. the cdc used this elaborate mathematical model to figure out how many would have infections and deaths related to super bugs the next five years but then took it a step furtherment and figured out how just a couple of simple steps could cut down on infections by 70%. really, the approach hinges on two things. the first is better reporting and tracking of super bug infections. the second which is most important really has to do with communication between health care facilities and local and state health organizations. so for instance, right now a person might be admitted to the
5:40 am
hospital exposed to a super bug, and then after their hospitalization they are transferred to a rehab or a nursing home or hospice care center where they are exposing others along the way. if we can improve communication between these centers, we can cut down on all of that. sop it really makes sense. >> the cdc said that doctors need to be careful about overprescribing antibiotics. why is this so important? >> we heard about this over and over. its overuse not just medically but in the farming community. we say this over and over. if you have a cold, caused by a virus don't push your doctor to give you an antibiotic. that's not going to help. tough it out, because what happens is the bugs get used to it and mutate and become resistant. so it's important not to overuse antibiotics. >> new research might make your running shoe purchase easier.

disease. what's going on with this? >> so this was actually a medical mystery that happened to me. a young woman came in years ago, and she had thrash on her thigh. she had been on vacation, in the sun, and she said other doctors said it was herpes or something else. it didn't look like it to me. but i did notice that the rash looked like it was in the shape of a hand. so what i did was i took pictures and i spoke to an absolutely brilliant dermatologist, dr. mark grossman. he said this is probably -- i said what is that? he explained to me that what can happen is that exposure to lime or lemon and other things, parsenips, parsley, can be the opposite of sun skron. so it can photo sensitize. where you have this you get a sun burn. ask her if she had lime on her hand. i called her up.

"cnet." this is either the scariest or safest place on the earth. you have all of these high-level hackers and all of these people who say we have information that needs to be protected. >> it's a combination of both. it's people talking about cybersecurity. the smartest minds in the business. at the same time everyone is aware of their own security because they're surrounded by other security professionals, there's a lot of pen-and-paper messaging going on. not everyone on the open network on their laptop. >> it's summer camp for hackers? >> yes, and they go to a lot of ppresentations and stage shows. >> tell us about the topics, you've been here talking about car hacking. now it seems like there's a whole new world in terms of what can be hacked. >> we've seen it in the last couple of weeks, the jeep hack, the android vulnerability where somebody can send you a text message with a video file and it can infect your phone without you even opening it. and the reason you've heard
5:49 am
about them is because people were getting attention for their presentations at the black hat conference. >> were you talking about car hacking at the end of last year. now it's looking like it could really happen. >> we've seen more demonstrations now. a lot of times because the entertainment systems in the cars are internet-connected or have bluetooth connections and they're not firewalled from the actual control systems of the cars, which now everyone realizes not the best idea. >> traditionally there's been some distrust. like a trust deficit between government agencies and the private hackers. what's changing in that relationship? it would seem like they have to start sharing information at some point to try to figure out what's the next turn that these hack e hackers. >> that's what the government is trying to do. i think a lot of the security professionals are dubious of that especially because of all the government hacks, the big opm hack. they feel the if they share the information with the government, the government may not be able to keep it secure.
5:50 am
the government says we're much more secure. >> it's interesting the conversation is going on. on thursday the deputy secretary of homeland security was there. he said we need to build trust. is this a group that will ever trust the government? >> i think it will continue to evolve. we'll have to continue to see if we see these big government hacks. every time it happens, it reduces their ability to go to the hacker community and say you should work with us and trust us and share potentially sensitive information with us. you have to trust that they would be able to secure that information. >> what about -- now more and more often as you pointed out, car hacking, has only been successfully done in these test demos. now you're hearing about things like medical devices and you know security -- different levels of security. >> they're bluetooth-connected. >> is everything bluetooth connected? >> we're entering the internet of things. a lot of devices are now internet connected or connected to each other and they provide vulnerabilities at entry points,
5:51 am
it's less the refrigerate that are someone wants to hack. but maybe they can hack it to get into your home network. >> you're telling us if there's something that's bluetooth connected, someone will try to hack it at least. >> that's not new. we just have more things now that were connected devices. >> i hope they make some headroads into this conference. >> move to an island, leave everything behind. >> thank you so much. coming up, the sign of change is up at the ed sullivan theater. stephen colbert is getting ready to take over the late show at cbs next month. we'll show you how he's ramping things up with just a month to go. you're watching "cbs this morning saturday." at subway, we bring layers of enticingly tender turkey, irresistibly crispy bacon, and deliciously rich guacamole

it is still fairly leisurely, 10 miles per hour, that's a six-minute mile. people can sprint or bicycle ride at the speed at which you're leisurely rolling down the ride. >> it's more than 100 years old. >> this is more than 100 years old this is still made before the airplane, before the model t. this is the structure. >> the second one on your list is in upper marlborough, maryland. built in 1917? >> yeah, upper marlborough, maryland. >> this is the one that might be the first roller coaster that we recognize as having a modern thrill. this you have a 70-foot drop. an 88-foot drop. about 50 miles per hour. now you're really moving at the speed of an accelerating car. the ride itself is about two minutes entirely and yeah, this is, the wild one is one that i've definitely been on and again, you do sort of feel the
6:33 am
meta-danger. on the one hand it is a total thrill. but at the same time look, you're talking about what looks from a far like a bunch of matchsticks. >> there tends to be a jerk fact nrt gopro video that i don't think i would enjoy. >> they've moved beyond the science fiction technology, which means there's not wheels under the track. you still get some air time. >> let's move on to kennywood park near pittsburgh in west mifflin, pennsylvania. >> there's a trio of lovely old roller coasters here, we'll start with the thunder bolt. which in many ways is considered one of the great roller coasters, one of the great faster roller coasters you have a 90-foot drop here. accelerating at 55 miles per hour. you're starting with a drop and the interesting thing about it is you start with the drop. in the middle of the ride that you begin to have a lift that picks you up towards the second one. that's one of the things that makes it distinctive, it's still
6:34 am
listed as one of the 20 best roller coasters in existence. >> even though it was created in 1924. >> very much the golden age of these sort of roller coasters, a lot of these wooden roller coasters built in the 1920s, different parts of the country were trying to outdo each other in terms of speed and drop. >> let's move away from the east coast. utah has one, lagoon park, it's called the roller coaster. >> called the roller coaster. >> not the most creative name. but as you come out of the first turn you begin to see mountains in the background. which is different than pennsylvania. here you have, it's 2500 feet long. the top speed, 45 miles per hour. so again, this is very much like the roller coasters that we understand today. it is the only wooden roller coaster in utah. and you can see the sort of the vast expanse that you have at the top of the first drop. which i think makes it sort of special. >> pretty cool looking. >> we should mention the cyclone
6:35 am
here at new york's coney island. which you've ridden this one. >> many of us have. >> no, not yet. maybe our floor crew. >> many of it think of it as the oldest coast anywhere existence. >> yes. because it's in coney island where the first roller coasters in the united states were built but in fact it's the youngest roller coaster on our list. with the upkeep that you have, it looks fairly modern. this is the fastest roller coaster that we have here, over 60 miles per hour. overlooking the beach and the boardwalk, iconic in lots of ways and clearly the most famous roller coaster in the united states today. >> thank you for the morning nausea. appreciate it. >> i'm ill now, thank you, derrick thompson. now here's a look at the weather for your weekend.
