ticket into the 3,000-hit club. >> i share this moment with all my dominican people and all the latin americans who support my career. >> good morning, everyone. welcome to "cbs this morning: saturday." i'm dana jacobson. >> i'm vladimir duthiers in for anthony mason. we gave him the day off. >> we forced him to take a day off. >> he wants to work, but we have him locked up back there. >> all right, we begin this morning with new earthquakes and eruptions on the big island of hawaii. >> earthquake. >> all right, folks. i'm going to need you to come back. >> tourists at volcanoes national park feeling the jolt of a powerful earthquake friday.
the park is now closed and visitors evacuated as the seismic activity continues. >> days after the kilauea volcano began to erupt, nearly 2,000 nearby residents were ordered to leave. the threat of moeltden lava, faulten rocks and toxic fumes is disrupting life on the big island. carter evans is pahoa about 35 miles from the erupting volcano. >> good morning. police have blocked off all access to the communities where the lava is flowing. the eruptions are just too unpredictable right now. you may be able to see some of that smoke behind me. that's where all of the action is. in fact, just yesterday, a 6.9 magnitude earthquake struck this area. >> please, god. please make it stop. >> the huge earthquake rattled homes and forced people to evacuate hours after a 5.6 quake hit the same area. >> man, this is crazy. amazing. we didn't expect it to be here. >> on friday, pahoa resident
ikaika marzo was filming when lava began to splatter in their neighborhood. >> we saw some smoke, and sure enough, there was the eruption on the road. >> lava could be seen pushing through cracks in the ground in this drone footage. the eruptions started after hundreds of small earthquakes rocked the area earlier in the week. residents began documenting the growing cracks in the streets in front of their homes. a magnitude 5.0 earthquake hit on thursday and the volcano began to erupt shortly after, sending lava into the streets. at least two houses were burned and a red line of lava snaked through trees several miles away. time lapse video shows the continuous flow of the lava lake deep inside kilauea. a growing concern is the sulfur dioxide being released by the eruption. it can cause coughing and burning throats, especially in people with existing respiratory
problems. volcano expert paul davis. >> if you add sulfur dioxide to the mucus in your system, it can turn into sulfuric acid. it's one of the most potent acids there is, and it can cause asphyxiation. >> authorities aren't sure how long the eruptions could last, but they're urging everyone to follow the evacuation orders because when the lava is flowing, first responders may not be able to get to them. for cbs this morning saturday, carter evans, pahoa, hawaii. >> at least three people are dead after severe weather swept across the upper midwest and canada friday. wind gusts of more than 60 miles per hour sent the sky crane spinning in toronto. it's the latest bout of severe storms after a quiet start to the spring. >> oh, my god. >> high winds toppled trees. peeled back roof tops, and sent boxes flying across an airport
runway. the great lakes region, under an aerial assault for much of friday with deadly results. a man was killed northwest of detroit when part of a tree snapped and fell on him while he was working in a yard. >> who would have ever thought? i mean, we all have the big trees in the yard. no one would have ever thought that. it was very sad. very sad. >> a man in canada died after witnesses saw him trying to clear downed wires from a roadway. while another was killed by a falling tree. nearly half a million customers in the u.s. from the great lakes to new england lost power. another 100,000 in canada were blacked out as well. >> tracking all of this is meteorologist ed curran of our chicago station wwbmtv. ed, good morning. >> good morning. and vlad, it was a low pressure system moving off to the east in the air filling in that void that caused the high winds and all that damage yesterday. this morning, it moves off to the east, and we do have a wind
advisory that will be up until early afternoon with winds that can gust to 45-plus miles per hour up in the far northeast. now, as we take a look at the nation, we don't have any areas right now that we forecast to have severe storms, but this is where you'll see thunderstorms around the nation. one of the areas we're concerned about, of course, is louisville, kentucky, where the derby will happen later on today. futurecast shows you that there will be rain in the area of louisville at the time of the race, and there has been rain in the louisville area this morning. so that's where we're looking at as far as that's concerned. how about temperatures? unbelievable 102 degrees in phoenix for today. 85 in los angeles. 80 degrees in minneapolis. 75 in new york. and 85 degrees in orlando. dana. >> meteorologist ed curran of our chicago station wbbmtv. thanks, ed. >> now to the question surrounding comments by rudy giuliani. the attorney brought in weeks ago to defend president trump in
the russia investigation is now being defended by his client, president trump himself. mr. trump told reporters giuliani was, quote, misinformed when he spoke about the president's legal affairs this past week. >> giuliani is now walking back some of his statements. errol barnett joins us from the white house. errol, good morning. >> good morning. on a day when president trump could have easily just focused on good employment news, mr. trump said rudy giuliani did not have his facts straight. raising yet more questions about the president's changing story as it relates to payments connected to stormy daniels. >> we cannot get complacent. we have to win the midterms. >> president trump traveled to dallas, texas, yesterday for the nra's leadership forum. en route, he defended his legal team. >> when rudy made the statements, rudy is great, but he just started and he wasn't totally familiar with
everything. >> rudy giuliani told fox news the president paid back his personal lawyer michael cohen in 2016 for payments made to stormy daniels. giuliani recently joined trump's legal team to bring an end to the russia investigation. >> the president reimbursed that over a period of several months. >> but yesterday, giuliani walked back the statements he made earlier this week, saying, quote, there is no campaign violation. the payment was made to resolve a personal and false allegation in order to protect the president's family. and that his references to timing were not describing my understanding of the president's knowledge but instead my understanding of these matters. the president also addressed reports he may sit down with special counsel robert mueller. >> i would love to speak. i would love to. nobody want to speak more than me. in fact, against my lawyers because most lawyers say never speak on anything. >> in the midst of defending his legal team, the president hinted at his upcoming meeting with north korean leader kim jong-un,
telling reporters only that a date and location are set. >> we're in constant contact with the leadership. we are in constant contact with north korea. >> with the release of three american hostages held in north korea hanging in the balance. >> we're doing very well with the hostages. >> now, the president also addressed reports that the u.s. may pull troops out of south korea. the president saying that is not part of ongoing negotiations with north korea. and today, president trump heads to cleveland to attend a roundtable and discuss tax cuts. vlad. >> all right, errol barnett at the white house for us. thank you. president trump's former campaign manager is still facing charges filed by special counsel robert mueller. a federal judge did not dismiss the indictment of paul manafort, but he was skeptical of mueller's authority in the case. jeff pegues has more on the hearing in alexandria, virginia, and the president's reaction to it. >> i've been saying that for a long time. it's a witch hunt.
>> on friday, president trump seized on the judge's words as evidence that the special counsel's investigation had gone too far. >> the judge questions mueller's authority to prosecute manafort. >> former trump campaign chairman paul manafort was indicted by the special counsel on bank fraud charges in connection to his alleged activities predating the 2016 election. during a court hearing friday, u.s. district judge t.s. ellis wondered whether in pursuing the case against manafort, special counsel robert mueller had exceeded his mandate to investigate russian election interference. ellis said the special counsel was trying to tighten the screws on manafort in order to force him to testify against the president. you don't really care about mr. manafort's bank fraud. what you really care about is what information mr. manafort can give you that would reflect on mr. trump or lead to his prosecution or impeachment.
but deputy solicitor general michael dreeban responded, we take very seriously the primary mission that was assigned to us. while the president praised the judge and used his comments to rally supporters against the russia investigation, it is unclear what kind of effect the judge's comments will actually have on the special counsel's investigation and the special counsel's case against paul manafort. attorneys who have faced judge ellis in the past say that his comments are not always a reflection of how he will actually rule. for "cbs this morning: saturday," jeff pegues, washington. >> for some perspective on these and other developments, we turn to bob cusack, editor and chief of "the hill." we were joking, there's always a lot to get to. let's get to it. let's start with jeff was. the judge in the paul manafort case is known for being combative, but came out sounding like he was very against some of what the prosecutors were saying. what's the likelihood that we'll
see some of the charges in this indictment dropped? >> i think it's unlikely. he's also facing charges in d.c. this was a rare bit of good news for the manafort legal team. the judge pressing mueller on do you just want to get manafort to sing about trump? and of course, mueller's team is saying hey, this is -- relates to collusion because he was the campaign manager. so a lot more to go here, but without a doubt, manafort has pled not guilty to all of the charges, but i think mueller does want him to talk. >> isn't that somewhat of the idea? you want to get to him so you can learn more. >> he's gotten a lot of people to talk, but not manafort, not yet. >> i saw a lot of people celebrating on twitter. the hashtag #judgeellis was trending. let's talk about ruda giuliani. did rudy giuliani harm the president more than he helped him? >> i think it hurt the president and the white house. you have this good economic news
that came out yesterday. the possible release of americans from north korea. that's a big deal. what are we talking about? rudy giuliani. he put out a clarifying statement yesterday. didn't clarify anything. there's a lot more questions. i think he has to answer more questions. now the question is whether he's going to stop the media blitz. we don't know what happened. did the president know about it, was he reimbursed or not. i think it was a big distraction. >> there's also a "new york times" report that is saying the president knew a while before. >> before he said to reporters on air force one. >> when you think about it, the story to begin with was not quite believable. michael cohen just paid stormy daniels $130,000 out of his own pocket and the president didn't know, and glun was saying he did know about it, did reimburse, and that's when you had the whole controversy once again reignite. >> some trump supporters are saying why does it all matter? why does it matter? >> they think it's a witch hunt. his base is very strong with him. i think that trump could do a lot of different things, even on
immigration, his base is going to stick with him. it doesn't hurt him with his base, but with nmeindependents,d it gins up the democratic base. >> given this president's history, is it not conceivable he could just say, look, this happened. i have apologized to my family. let's move on. north korea, economic news. and his base, as you say, would be, sure, they would be fine with that? >> yeah, because his base doesn't care about this story. but the president doesn't apologize. he just doesn't do it. that would make the story go away. we would be able to move on. what are the details, what actually happened? and the thing is, maybe mueller already knows because of the michael cohen raid, of the financial transactions. that was some people saying, okay, giuliani is going to get it out there because he knows mueller knows about the payments. >> as far as the president sitting down with robert mueller, we sort of have heard two things. we heard him say he will but only if he's guaranteed it will be fair. i don't know if you could ever
guarantee at least in his mind that it's fair. what's the likelihood that we see it? >> i dont think it's going to happen. i thought it was before the michael cohen raid. now i don't think so. the legal team around trump, even though it's been shifting a lot and different members have told him don't do this, mueller could try to subpoena him in force, but that could be a battle. all the way to the supreme court could take months, but mueller wants to interview the president. i think it's less than 50/50. >> iran deal, the may 12th deadline is fast approaching. what are your sources telling you about which way the president is leaning? >> he's not going to continue the deal. what happens with the rest of our allies? u.s. sanctions are not enough for iran to get nervous about, but it's with france and with germany and other allies that the sanctions actually could snap back and hurt iran. so i think this is trump going back to his campaign promise, and he has been -- he doesn't like to certify this deal.
i don't think he's going to continue on. and then the question is what next. >> all right, bob cusack from "the hill." thank you very much. tomorrow morning on "face the nation" on cbs, margaret brennan's guest will include michael hayden and michael avenatti, the attorney for adult film star stormy daniels. the nation's job report for april reached an impressive milestone. the labor department said friday employers added 164,000 jobs last month. that meant the unemployment rate fell from 4.1% in march to 3.9% in april. that is the lowest level since december 2000. >> former president george h.w. bush is home this morning after he was released from a houston hospital last night. the 41st president was treated for an infection for the past two weeks. he was admitted shortly after attending the funeral of his wife barbara. they were married for 73 years. mr. bush is 93 years old. >> a tweet from a family
spokesperson said -- >> we don't have that. >> sorry. >> we'll bring it to you soon. let's talk about this. police in terre haute, indiana, are mourning the loss of one of their officers shot and killed in the line of duty. a suspect in a homicide opened fire when he was approached by four investigators friday evening. he was wounded in a shootout with police and later barricaded himself inside an apartment complex. the suspect later died from his injuries. >> a lawsuit has been filed in the charlie rose sexual harassment case. "the washington post" reported thursday that 27 more women had come forward to accuse rose of sexually harassing them while they were working at cbs or elsewhere. >> three of them are now suing rose and cbs news saying they were subjected to, quote, repeated, ongoing, and unlawful physical and verbal sexual harassment by rose. and that cbs unlawfully retaliated against one of them and that the company failed to investigate the matter. in a response, cbs news said, quote, we will vigorously defend
against the allegations pertaining to cbs news. cbs fired rose last fall. we reached out to hill friday for a comment on the suit but we have not heard back. >> time to show you some of this morning's headlines. usa today reporting there were more active shootings in 2017 than in any other year. the fbi findings also reveal more people were killed in shootings last year than since the year 2000 when the agency first started keeping records. officials say the high death toll follows the las vegas shooting massacre and the shooting at a church in sutherland springs, texas. one agents attributes the increase in shootings to several factors including video games, gun accessibility, even news coverage. >> the des moines register reports iowa now has the strictest abortion law in the country. governor kim reynolds signed what many are calling the fetal heartbeat bill. it prevents physicians from performing an abortion after a fetal heartbeat is detected, which is around six weeks. >> reuters reporting the
national security agency collected 534 million calls and texts from americans last year. that's more than triple from 2016. still, the total is a fraction of what was collected before former contractor edward snowden revealed the practice in 2013. the records collected by the nsa include the numbers and time of a call or text message but not their content. >> the new york post reports keith raniere joined allison mack in entering a not guilty plea friday for allegedly treating women as sex slaves at his cult in new york. raniere is facing sex trafficking, forced label, and conspiracy charges. mack is free on bail after pleading not guilty to sex trafficking charges last month. both are being tried together and could face up to 15 years behind bars if convicted. >> and the arizona republic reports a self-driving van owned by google was involved in a crash in chandler, arizona, friday. but as indicated by the van's
front-end camera, it was not the van's fault. another car swerved across the median and struck the van. a person in the van was treated for minor injuries. self-driving vehicles have been involved in several crashes in chanldler since the project began, but all were determined to be caused by humans. >> yeah. that's not good. >> well, the one reason i think so many people are cautious about the idea of self-driving vans. in this case, again, it was a person driving that had a problem. >> i feel like in america, people love driving. so giving that up is kind of tough. >> two hours back and forth between connecticut and new york, i stopped loving driving. depends where you're driving all the time. >> it's 22 minutes after the hour. now here's a look at the weather for your weekend.
yet another twist in the legal drama involving a kennedy family cousin. still ahead, the court decision that reversed the conviction of michael skakel in the death of a young neighbor more than 40 years ago. >> plus, cracking the code of economic transformation. we'll visit africa's most populous nation in a program turning young people with few opportunities into skilled computer coders. you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday." the boys in the band on broadway. listen for the trumpet. >> sunday, adventure into >> sunday, adventure into inhospitable pla ♪
when i first came to ocean bay, what i saw was despair. i knew something had to be done. hurricane sandy really woke people up, to showing that we need to invest in this community. i knew having the right partner we could turn this place around. it was only one bank that could finance a project this difficult and this large, and that was citi. preserving affordable housing preserves communities. so we are doing their kitchens and their flooring and their lobbies and the grounds. and the beautification of their homes, giving them pride in where they live, will make this a thriving community once again. ♪
still to come, a retail chain that caters to crafters. hear how hobby lobby obtained ancient artifacts and why they're now being returned. >> plus, art collectors are ready to pay for riches once owned by the rockefellers. we'll look at what could be the first billion dollar estate auction and see where all that money will go. we'll be right back. this is "cbs this morning: saturday."
in your book, you call the landscape the most complex security environment in modern history. how have those political risks evolved since you were secretary of state, and has president trump made it better or worse? >> there's no doubt that the sources of political risk are multiplying. who would have thought that one of the vigorous would be the use of social media platforms for a great power behaving badly, the russians, to interfere in our elections. that's one of the new ways in which technology matters. when you think about the risk that comes from somebody simply having a cell phone and seeing a bad incident in your store, when you think about long supply chains and what trade wars or tariffs could do to supply chains that, for instance, are in canada or in mexico.
the day after 9/11, we closed the border with canada. within three days, nobody could make a car because the supply chain was in canada. when you start threatening trade wars, you threaten things like supply chains. so i think the sources of political risk are multiplying anyway. but anything that adds to that uncertainty, like talk around tariffs and trade wars, certainly increases that uncertainty for businesses. >> i wonder as someone who has been in the war room, how critical is it for a president to be surrounded with or have access to advisers who have opposing points of view? >> it's absolutely critical that the president hear opposing points of view. it can be very easy in that room, the situation room, for everyone to start re-enforcing each other. so the president needs to be able to hear no, mr. president, that's not right.
all right, talk about lucky to be alive. a utah man facing drug charges and wearing handcuffs tried to make a run for it the other day. he raced out of the courtroom and made a head-first leap over the railing. and down a 20-foot scarecase. again, in case you missed it. unbelievable. he was taken back into custody mms immediately after an officer attempted to catch him. the suspect is being treated for his injuries. can't run from the law. >> not using his head, i suppose. >> welcome back to "cbs this morning: saturday." we begin this half hour with another twist in the notorious
murder case involving a member of the kennedy case. >> in a stunning reversal friday, connecticut supreme court threw out the conviction of michael skakel in the murder of a neighborhood. skakel is the nephew of ethel kennedy. >> 43 years ago, 16 geerld martha moxley, a popular teenager in greenwich, connecticut, was found beaten to death from someone wielding a golf club. her then 15-year-old neighbor michael skakel was found guilty of murder but a court vacated the conviction. because of allegedly shoddy work by skakel's lawyer, mickey sherman. >> skakel and his supporters claim sherman ignored a possible witness in his original trial 15 years ago. a witness who would have confirmed his alibi. skakel's cousin bobby kennedy jr. has stood by him through the years. >> he's innocent. i know he's innocent. >> skakel was originally convicted in 2002 and served ten years before a lower court vacated the sentence in 2013. just 16 months ago, the
connecticut supreme court reinstated the conviction and in a rare move reversed itself. dorothy moxley told the hartford current she was shocked by the decision. >> martha was one of these children that was just so easy. she just was so easy to raise, to do things with. >> and it's now up to state prosecutors to decide whether to retry skakel, who is free in the meantime. in a scathing dissent, one judge accused her colleagues of giving skakel special treatment because of his wealth, his race, and his connections to the kennedy family. for "cbs this morning: saturday," tony dokoupil, new york. >> this is a story that's captivated the country for so many years. when you see mrs. moxley there talking about her daughter martha, it is a moment to pause and think about the family's loss, and then when you have his cousin saying he thinks he's
innocent, it's hard to know. >> two families for 40 years have been dealing with this. >> martha moxley's father died a couple years after she was killed. he sort of -- a lot of people think he died because of the stress of trying to find out who killed his daughter. >> never supposed to bury a child. >> hobby lobby is one of the biggest arts and craft stores in the country. now the federal government has forced the company to return thousands of ancient artifacts to iraq. an intriguing story about international smuggling. we'll have that later. >> first, here's a look at the weather for your weekend. along with smoking and obesity, should chronic loneliness be considered a public health threat? up next in our morning rounds,

time now for morning rounds, oub look at the medical news of the week. this morning, a condition that's so common, you actually may not think of it as a mental health problem. we're talking about loneliness. previously published research suggests there could be a link between being lonely and your overall health. >> a new survey released by cigna tried to gauge the extent of loneliness in america. a little over 20,000 adults were surveyed using the ucla lone loneliness scale. designed to evaluate the level of loneliness and the level of social isolation people may feel. we're joined by dr. gail saltz, welcome back, doctor. >> thank you for having me. >> let's talk about this.
when you look at some of the results that cigna published, did anything surprise you? >> as a mental health professional, no. probably to the general public, yes. because really, the numbers are quite high. many, many of us are at least sometimes feeling quite lonely. and many people actually are always feeling quite lonely, which is really important. it has physical health ramifications, mental health ramifications. you could say it rises to the level of true public health concern. >> was there sort of a generational difference, like an age difference and more so in one category? >> that's what might surprise people the most. i'm not surprised, but in the 18 to 22-year-old category, that was -- those people scored the highest in terms of loneliness. we tend to think of loneliness as an older person's problem. but actually, the scores were highest for the youngest group, 18 to 22. and remained high and dropped very slowly until the oldest group. you would be like -- >> is there any indication as to why? >> i think that there is,
actually. the study didn't look at that specifically, but if you think about it, people are marrying later than ever. marriage is actually and partnership is a big antidote to loneliness. human beings evolutionary are social creatures. we need to bond. it was a method of survival. when you don't have someone or people you're bonded to, that creates real problems. so later marriage, less marriage, people moving farther apart from each other than ever before. think about it, older generations, families stayed together. now, people spread out all over. and a lot of feeling that you don't agree with other people. we're very divided. and that creates a sense of lack of intimacy, lack of being included, which leads to loneliness. >> the later marriage thing, my mom is watching. she's going to be calling me after the show. >> mine as well. >> get on it. >> the reason i say that -- yeah, get on it, right? because there are some real physical health issues that are linked to this phenomena.
>> that's correct. as i mentioned earlier, because of evolutionarily, we're meant to bond. when we don't, it creates a sense of danger for us because it was long ago dangerous. and that makes us release the hormone cortisol. causes cardiovascular problems, hardening of arteries, decrease in immunity, more likely to get infections. decreased immunity also leads to higher rates of cancer. there are lots of actual physical health problems that and occur as a results of prolonged feelings of loneliness. in addition to that, depression is a big result of loneliness. it's the number one source of disability in this country. it's a very common illness, and loneliness could be a big precursor. >> i would have thought social media impacted this. but it didn't have as big of an impact as we think. >> it's a little misleading. it says it doesn't have an
impact, but we're talking about a bimodell group. the group that uses social media to add to their in-person contacts and keep the relationship better, so to speak, that group, it did not impact, not surprisingly. but there are many people who don't have in-person contacts, who are only on social media sort of looking, looking at what other people are doing, looking at how other people are not alone or it seems like other people are not alone. >> you present what you want. >> that group, it really does enhance those feelings of loneliness. we know that social media leads to more depression, more anxiety. that may be another factor for the young group. >> there was a "new york times" report that came out a few weeks ago that suggested that boys are more at risk for factors that including increased alienation. did the study look at it by gender? >> it did not. actually, i take it back. it did in a broad way and found both males and females really suffer from this. they may handle it different, and that may be something that the other study looked at. so men tend to get more angry
when they're isolated, et cetera. women more cry in the shower, as we were speaking about. so there may be differences in reaction, but it does affect both men and women. i would say we have to consider this as a public health issue. and what can we do? there are things we can do to encourage people to have more in-person contacts like, you know, your mother will do later. >> open a conversation as well with people. >> and get people to join you. >> not too much conversation. not too much conversation, mom. >> dr. gail saltz, we're out of time for this conversation, but thank you. coming up, why the hottest tech jobs are out of africa. we'll go to nigeria where u.s. investors are training a new generation of software engineers. the program is even getting some high-profile visitors. you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday." this morning's round segment

illegally will be returning home to iraq. the items include rare tablets that acted as administrative and legal documents along with clay bullae, a sort of legal seal. >> in 2010, hobby lobby was building a collection of biblical artifacts. the company at that time was offered a trove of tablets, cylinder seals, and clay bullae. the deal, however, was fraught with red flags. >> hobby lobby, the national arts and contracts chain, agreed to pay $1.6 million eight years ago for over 5,000 artifacts from sellers based in the united arab emirates and israel. u.s. customs and border protections intercepted the artifacts that were falsely labelled as ceramic and clay tiles. hobby lobby paid dh 3 million in a 2017 settlement. in a statement after the settlement, hobby lobby's
president acknowledged we should have exercised more oversight and carefully questioned how the acquisitions were handled. the formal transfer of the art fblths took place this week in the washington, d.c. backyard of iraqi ambassador fareed yasseen. acting i.c.e. director thomas homan acknowledged how priceless the artifacts are. >> the culture and symbolic worth of these iraqi treasures is greater than any monetary value to the people of iraq. >> it's so simply said. these are cultural treasures from a company that is where they belong. it's that simple. >> it has been the case in a lot of countries because of colonialism that they have appropriated or taken outright things that belong to other cultures and many instances they're trying to get them back. >> it's making sure they find a way to get them back, as they did in this case. >> for sure. >> cultural riches of another kind are going up for auction this week. ahead, we'll preview the incredible collection of david and peggy rockefeller and a sale that could bring in a billion

dignity. but she maintains hers. >> this is a case where you can't make lemonade out of lemons. >> that's true. there's no bright side to this, no bright side to alzheimer's. although there's hope around the corner for drugs, but in the moment, there's no bright side. you can only repurpose your pain into something positive. >> in part because of alzheimer's, you wrote this book. >> that was the repurposing of the pain to something positive. >> was there something you discovered in the intentional act of writing that was a revelation? >> i think it was the opportunity to reflect on who my mother was and therefore who i am. and there was one passage in it where i talk about my mother's what i assume passivity. as i got older, i thought, that wasn't passivity. that's called reserve. sometimes you don't need to throw your negative opinion out and correct all the wrongs. you should speak truth to power, but sometimes there's a way of speaking truth to power.

have been forced to evacuate on the big island of hawaii because of the erupting of kilauea volcano. the island is on high alert as streams of hot lava pour through the neighborhoods in the southern part of the island. compounding the problem, a series of powerful earthquakes. >> residents were also warned to watch out for dangerous levels of sulfur dioxide gas. carter evans is in pahoa, about 35 miles from the volcano. carter, good morning. >> good morning. you can see where police have pretty much blocked off all access to the communities where the lava is flowing. the eruptions are just too unpredictable. you can see that smoke behind me. that's where all the action is right now. in fact, just yesterday, a magnitude 6.9 earthquake struck this area. the eruptions started after hundreds of small earthquakes rocked the community earlier in the week. residents began documenting the growing cracks on the streets in front of their homes.
the eruption began after a large earthquake struck on thursday. lava could be seen spewing from the streets in at least two homes have already burned. one of the big concerns out here is the high level of sulfur diox aid being released by the eruption. it can cause respiratory problems. officials aren't sure how long the eruptions could last but they're averasking everyone to listen to the eruption evacuations because when lava is flowing, it may not be possible to get to people. >> at least three people were killed after severe weather swept across the upper midwest and parts of canada. wind gusts of more than 60 miles per hour sent this crane spinning in toronto friday. high winds sent boxes flying across an airport runway. one man in canada died after trying to clear downed wires while another was killed by a falling tree. nearly half a million customers in the united states lost electrical power. >> investigators in houston are

washed up on shore. war's grim tide overwhelmed the tiny island as residents scrambled to find survivors. bob's father was among them. >> it was a scottish farmer who ultimately found him, my father, alive. >> more than 700 men died and were buried in temporary graves. islay resident even sewed handmade american flag for their funerals. yesterday, 100 years later, american, british, and german war ships honored those men lost. they also paid tribute to the men and women who never set out for war but still found themselves surrounded by it. 1918, the year scottish policemen, farmers, and even seamstresses became american war heroes. for "cbs this morning: saturday," jonathan big
leoughty, london. >> always amazing in such tragedy how so many different people can come together. brings worlds together. >> so true. we're working on a story. the military has been actively looking to bring home members of all of the services who have been lost to wars and to identify their remains and reunite them with their families. >> having done a story on a p.o.w. before, and the family finally getting the remains, it is the final resting place where they need to be. again, an important thing for their families as well for closure. >> for sure. >> we're going to move on to some history on the baseball diamond. and a lighter note. albert pujols entered perhaps the most elite club in mlb history. >> there's a flair out to right field, and there it is, hit number 3,000 for albert pujols. >> the los angeles angels first baseman became the 32 ngd major leaguer to collect 3,000 career hits, but he's just the fourth player to reach that milestone and the 600 home run mark.
he joins greats hank aaron, willie mays, and alex rodriguez as the only members of the 3,000-hit, 600-home run club. >> so it's a big deal? >> it's a big deal. when you're top five, big deal, big deal. >> willie mays and hank aaron, that's incredible. >> all right, so here's a look at the weather for your weekend. removing confederate monuments has been a controversial issue, but one mayor's handling of the issue may earn him a spot on the national stage. we're traveling to new orleans to speak to mitch landrieu as he

presidential run. are you out of politics after may 7th? >> i hope to be. i do hope to be. people say, well, you're a riser star. i say, yeah, it took me 30 years to become an overnight sensation. >> it may have taken mitch landrieu 30 years to build a name for himself across the country, but he's also been a household name in new orleans. >> all right, you guys. >> his father moon landrieu led the city for eight years in the 1970s. >> i wanted to be a professional actor. that was my first dream and my first love. >> but landrieu hedged his bets in college, double majoring in theater and political science at catholic university of america. >> people misunderstand what theater school is really about. it's about stripping down so that you can be authentic. you look at shakespeare, rogers and hammer stein. you look at the script that was written for hamilton and their essential truths in history, all of those skills helped me when i eventually after law school decided to go into politics. >> this position i'm running for is a key position.
>> in between unsuccessful runs for mayor, landrieu would serve as louisiana's lieutenant governor. he was elected the city's mayor in 2010. >> these monuments sell bralt a fictional sanitized confederacy, ignoring the death. >> seven years later, landrieu's speech on the removal of the four confederate monuments caught the country and even himself by surprise. >> the title of the speech is "truth. kwaelts it was the truth as i saw it. it was not meant to be a speech to a national audience,it evidently spoke to people. >> if we don't change to become a more open and inclusive society, then all of this would have been in vain. >> the speech became the impetus for his book "in the shadow of statues, a white southerner confronts history. kwaelts he writes about his inability to get contractors or equipment from in-state, even after approval by the
legislative, judicial, branches of government. >> they threatened the lives of people that worked for the government, contracted with the government, and said if you take that down, we'll ruin your life, or we'll hurt you. >> what about the criticism that there's an empty column in the >> landrieu's father warned him about the risks of removing the monuments. even though it was a rogue moon landrieu, a pioneering civil rights advocate in the city helped paved. >> there's a great moment in the book where you talk about your father in the campaign. tells you to go to every corner bar. >> many of these at that time were white bars. my father was credited with working with the african-american community and the white community really never forgave him for that. but he was remembering what they were back then.
so he bothered me about it so much, he really aggravated me. i finally went into one of the bars and saddled up to a guy and said i'm mitch landrieu. >> i do remember lying to him when i got home that night. how did you do? oh, they love you. it's not a problem. >> all of the family's political experience hasn't shielded landrieu from some issues that have traditionally plagued new orleans. the murder and incarceration rates for young african-american men have remained among the highest in the country under his tenure. >> you think the removal of these statues is a direct corollary to the issue. >> the message the statues are sending is a message that's been sent since slavery has been here. these monuments in a real way are death. they're not things that are enabling people to do better. they're destroying people's souls. >> just last year, he seemed caught off guard when a number of the city's emergency drainage pumps stopped working after a
storm. causing massive flooding and forcing the res nashzs of top city officials. >> when you look back at that, do you have a different perspective about the situation? >> look, when i took the city over, the city was completely broken. the infrastructure relating to pumping in the city is olding than calvin coolidge. we have spent almost every waking moment in eight years trying to fix the system, but you can't fix it overnight. the city has been wet more times than you can count. you can't fix what you don't have money for. why a lot of mayors are frustrated that the infrastructure bill is stuck in congress. it takes billions and billions and billions of dollars to do this. you see it in flint, michigan, all over the place. you see it in new york right now, with the subway. and so mayors have been really raising their voices. >> landrieu boasts about new business investment in new orleans, including construction of a new $1 billion airline terminal. along with the record 11 million visitors last year and more than 50,000 new residents. >> we've created 20,000 jobs.
we're actually helping build the rocket that's going to go to mars. so the city of new orleans, although people think about it as mardi gras and fun, we have a knowledge-based economy now. as washington continues to get stuck, cities are getting a lot smarter, a lot faster, a lot more entrepreneurial. they try to fix things and get them done. >> last month, mitch landrieu helped celebrate the city's 300th anniversary. >> here's to the next 300 years. happy birthday, new orleans. i love you so very much. >> and the mayor says he's proud of his eight years leading the city he loves. >> you know, there's an adage that you have to walk by faith, not by sight. that duoesn't mean by ignorance but you get an intuition about the right pathway. if you're not making mistakes, you're not trying. i think we got it pretty right most of the time. >> whatever his future plans, when he leaves office on monday, history will again be made with the swearing in of his successor, latoya cantrell, the first woman and first
african-american woman ever to be elected mayor of new orleans. >> did you believe him? i have to ask you, did you believe he's done with politics? >> he's a trained actor, as he said. but i think he's got some plans he's not ready to talk about yet. personally. and i actually do think he's ready to not be mayor for a bit. >> was he popular in new orleans? >> i mean, it's a mixed bag. new orleans, we love to complain about everything, i should say. >> you're from new orleans. >> new orleans has infrastructural issues. there is a lot of crime there. there are tough roads. there's educational and affordable housing issues. there's flooding issues. and so it's always a mixed bag. >> jamie wax, great report. thank you. it's an estate sale like no other. of art and objects usually seen in the world's great museums. up next, we're going to preview this week's rockefeller auction and see where the expected billion dollar postings will go. you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday."

gertrude stein. >> even here, he surrounded himself with the masters of modern art. >> is collecting for you a compulsion? >> it's a pleasure. >> a pleasure he could indulge in as a member of what many considered america's most powerful family. >> was the name ever a burden for you? >> i don't feel so. i was certainly conscious of it. there were moments i may have felt awkward or embarrassed. but even early on, it was obvious there were advantages as well as disadvantages. >> the name and the fortune behind it helped david and his wife peggy accumulate one of the 20th century's great art collections. >> how significant a collection is this? >> it's the most important collection of paintings and sculpture that's ever been sold. >> the rockefellers were crazy about ceramics. >> marc porter is chairman of christie's americas, which will next week. the sale includes this monet,
estimate $50 million. matisse's odalisque with magnolias. >> this matisse painted in 1924 is the greatest matisse to come to market in 50 years. >> estimate, $70 million. and arguably the crown jewel of the collection -- >> she looks pretty good. >> the 1905 painting, young girl with a flower basket, from picasso's rose period. >> the estimate on this picture is what? >> we are giving guidance of about $100 million. >> $100 million? >> yes. >> the picasso, which hung in the family's new york library, had belonged to american writer gertrude stein. one of 47 works bought in 1968 by a syndicate that included david rockefeller, his brother new york governor nelson rockefeller, and cbs founder william paley. they chose lots out of a felt hat to get first pick.
>> and as luck would have it, david rockefeller got choice number one. >> the building you're in now is the original time life building. >> yes. >> the auction, which will be held in rockefeller center, was arranged by david rockefeller jr., after his father died last year at 101. >> what was it like growing up with all of that around you? >> it limited the amount of ball play in the house. that was the negative part, but it did train us to appreciate beautiful things. >> the rockefeller kids were also given an early lesson in philanthropy. >> usually allowance was given on sunday morning and church was next. >> so you're parting with the allowance. >> you lost 10% in the first hour. >> all the proceeds from this go to charity, all. >> by some estimates, it could bring a billion dollars to the beneficiaries which include harvard and rockefeller universities. the museum of modern art, and
the council on foreign relations. there are 1600 lots in the sale. >> everything in the family houses. >> everything from three or four houses. >> including furniture, prized porcelain. >> this is napoleon's ice cream bowl, basically, dispenser anyway. >> it is his ice cream bowl. you would put ice underneath and ice cream on the top and go to town. >> and the family jewelry. >> this may be my favorite thing in the auction. >> along with many other people, i think. >> this ais a rockefeller cente money clip. >> what better to hold a stack of bills. >> it also includes some of the collection of rockefeller carriages. how far back in family history would some of these go? >> certainly 100 years because my grandfather was driving carriages both before and after cars were invented. >> will you be at the auction? >> yes, i will. >> and rooting it on in effect? >> oh, darned right. >> we're going to see the
dispersal in effect of one of the great art collections of all time. i mean, is that in any sense difficult for you to watch? >> maybe it will be that night, but i'm thinking the better it goes, the happier i will be. i think, yeah, that matisse, if it goes into hands where i think i'll never see it again, that will be hard for me. other than that, this is a game and i'm on the same side as christie's on this one because we're both trying to create a huge success for the benefit of wonderful institutions. >> like you get a piece of history and then a piece of history on top of it. >> these are some of the most beautiful art pieces i have ever seen in my life, that i will ever see. but i probably, you know, i'll go for a thimble. >> cannot afford any of it between the two of us maybe. >> all right, the surf's up, as they say, even though the ocean is nowhere in sight. up next, some of the world's best surfers will compete today on waves about 100 miles from
the nearest coastline. we'll see how it's possible just ahead. you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday." what part of the current times you live in, you talk about refugee, canada, what part of the current times do you bring to a fiction show and fictional character? >> it's really everywhere in the show. the parallels between even what the scripts make you feel. but i think for me, specifically for the storyline this season, it's the refugee story. and trying to, you know, the show talked a lot with the u.n., trying to make that experience authentic. so yeah. >> i can tell you this. i reached out to lizzy, also known as elisabeth moss, told her you would be on. she said she has amazing things this year. oh, man, one of her scenes later on, i burst into tears when i
watched it. it's been such an inspiration to watch her this year give it everything she has every time, and you can quote me. that's what she said about you. >> she's amazing. that's so, so sweet. >> what does this role mean to you? when you compare it to that, two totally different characters. >> to be able see the reach this show has, and to be able to understand that the platform that we have been given. we suddenly have an audience, people who are listening to us. >> does that change things for you? >> it's an incredible amount of responsibility. it feels like i need to step up to the plate. you know what i mean? but who knew how far reaching this show would be? >> you have stepped up to the plate and hit a home run. i tell everybody, it's the best show on tv. >> yes, she does. >> everybody. the way it's written, the acting. it's amazing. >> thanks so much for being with us. season 2 of the handmaid's tale season 2 of the handmaid's tale is streaming now on hulu.

25 of the world's best professional surfers are converging on an unusual surf spot later today for a competition called the founders cup. the contest takes place on a manmade lagoon in central california. that's about 150 miles from the nearest natural wave. >> the technology was involdeve by a surfing legend, and carter evans got to try it out. >> it's just another day at work for 11-time world champion surfer kelly slater. at first glance, this could be any one of slater's favorite waves around the world. from australia's gold coast to south africa's turbulent indian ocean shores, to the famed north
shore of oahu, but today, slater's riding the surf of lemoore, california, more than 100 miles inland from the nearest coastline, smack dab in the middle of the state's agricultural heartland. >> if this same exact reef and wave was in the ocean, i know it would be really, really crowded every day. >> every wave is the wave of the day out here. >> it's all possible thanks to a decade long quest by slater and his team to build a machine that can produce seven-foot-tall professional grade artificial waves at the push of a button. >> wave is launched. >> the key component is this 100-ton mechanism that looks like a locomotive riding alongside this half-mile-long pool. >> basically, a foil that pushes through the water. all the energy is transmitted into a swell. >> then the wave sets back up. >> because the hydrofoil settings are adjustable and the
contours of the pool's bottom are constant, this wave introduces something new to surfing, predictability. >> given everyone an equal opportunity to demonstrate their talents and skills, it seems more fair. >> because the wave is exactly the same every time. >> almost exactly the same. >> as a result, slater's waves seem tailor made for professional competition, and this weekend, it will host its first official world surf league event. but slater's ambitions don't end there. >> 2020, we have surfing in the olympics for the first time. >> surfing is so dependent on the conditions. it would be really hard to work it into an event like the olympics. but with this, now surfing is an arena sport. >> potentially, it could be. >> sophie goldschmidt is the ceo of the world surf lead which bought the technology two years ago. the upcoming tokyo olympics were very much on the league's mind. >> there are events to host it in the oegdz, but we're building a facility in tokyo. if it's built and tested in
time, we hope they'll consider using it. >> plans are under way to build more of these facilities all over the world, and not just for pro athletes on the coast. do you see this technology drawing other people in? perhaps a kid from iowa wants to be a surfer. in a few years, he can, because there's one of these nearby. >> exactly, now it makes dreams a reality. >> is that your vision, to allow more people to experience? >> i have no problem with more people experiencing it. i don't necessarily want my favorite waves around the world to get more crowded. >> how long have you been surfing? >> about 25 years. >> on this day, i was the one crowding his new favorite wave. >> surfers ready. >> surfers are ready. >> despite my experience, i was nervous to surf kelly slater's personal wave. >> we're going to make this one work. >> seconds later, the massive hydrofoil was slicing through 15 million gallons of water, and it was time to take the plunge.
i do know what everyone feels. that's why i enjoy when people get nervous and blow their first wave. i actually like it. afterwards, i got to tell them, i did the same thing. they're like, no, really? >> you tackle some of the most dangerous waves in the world, yet you still have nerves on this one. >> it's strange, it doesn't make sense. >> neither does building a surf break in the middle of a farmer's field. >> we're moving. later. >> that didn't stop kelly slater from making it a reality. for "cbs this morning: saturday," carter evans, lemoore, california. >> just another day of work for carter evans, too. he said that about kelly slater. not bad. >> it's great. well done, carter. >> and cbs sports will broadcast the world surf league's competition later today at 2:00 p.m. eastern. now here's a look at your weather for your weekend.
