what i'm witnessing in my life. >> we both have been in situation like that before and they can be terrifying. >> very scary. earlier in the day the talks surrounding trump was about unity as he picked up the endorsement of his onetime campaign rival ben carson. a news conference in florida on friday, carson said he and trump have buried the hatchet and the gop front-runner has been misjudged. >> there are two different donald trump's. the one you see on the stage and cerebral. >> major garrett asked trump about carson's comments. >> do you agree with that characterization? >> i think there are two donald trump's. there is the public version and people see that. it's probably different, i think, than the personal donald trump. >> carson also warned that a failure to rally behind quote would, quote, fracture the party in an irreparable way. >> reporter: another round of relentless rain is expected to

8:17 am
lights below are her jewels. the moon and stars will endlessly turn overhead and here they will stay, as they always wished it to be, resting in each other's arms, only each other's arms until the end of time. >> reporter: it was president reagan's request that the burial site face west toward the pacific ocean, which on a clear day, you can normally see on this hilltop. for "cbs this morning: saturday," ben tracy, simi valley, california. >> what a nice service. >> beautiful service. lovely. >> she will be missed. russia is pressing washington police for details about the mysterious murder of a former aide to vladimir putin authorities do not have any suspects and what is being described as a brutal attack. here is jeff pegues. >> reporter: when lesson's body was found inside this washington, d.c. hotel back in november, within hours, russian media reported that the former putin aide had died of a heart attack.

8:32 am
government sets the standards for car seat strength. the audi seat that injured jesse met or exceeded that federal standard, which is so low, even a banquet chair could pass. so that passes? >> that passes the standard. >> reporter: internal documents show carmakers and the nhtsa have known about the potential for seatback collapses for decades. the cost to fix the problem could be on the operated of a dollar or so. >> shame on them. my boy wouldn't be hurt if they had done their job. >> reporter: of the 107 people we found who have been injured or killed by apparent seatback failure the majority are children and 17 died the past 15 years alone. nhtsa insists it has looked into the issue but says it is very challenging to upgrade the are so rare. >> if you don't write your legislator and tell him to do something about this thing, nothing is going to be done. and more children are going to get hurt and it could be your

8:38 am
time for "morning rounds" with holly phillips and samantha. we are talking how much processed food americans eat. a new study finds ultra processed foods make up more than half of all the calories in the u.s. diet. i know that sounds scary. i don't even know why. >> ultra. >> it's the ultra. what is ultra processed food? >> it is a term that sort of emerging the past couple of years. to acknowledge different degrees of processing with food. anything that has an ingredients list can be considered processed. i use an example of, say, whole grain bread where the ingredients are whole grain, salt, sunflower oil and maybe baking soda.
8:39 am
it processed but there is real food and real ingredients in them. in them at all. the corn is reconinstituted down to nothing and additives are put back in to make that food taste real. additives like preservatives, coloring, flavoring, multipliers and transfats. everything you need to give food that basically doesn't exist flavor and that is what ultra processed foods are. foods, i think most people think of junk food. what impact are they having on our health? >> one of the most striking things about this study was not only that half of our calories come from these foods, right? think about it. half of the calories in the american diet you could buy at 7-eleven. but even more striking, 90% of the added sugar we get in our diet comes from this type of food. we know added sugar directly causes weight gain and obesity.
8:40 am
problems that come from overweight and obesity from there. the top problems that affect us today -- heart disease, diabetes, cancer, high blood pressure, high cholesterol. when we focus on these ultra processed foods just by cutting down on those, we can make a tremendous difference to our overall health. >> how do we do that and break away from this stuff, samantha? >> what is interesting, ing interesting, not only is it difficult to break away from these foods because we are used to them and they are convenient but formulated by the food companies to make us crave them. the chemicals in our brain light up and make us eat those foods. to get off that treadmill of chemically processed foods, we have to cook more at home from scratch. if you bought a french bread frozen pizza with 21 grams of fat and it had transfat but you made your own at home you could get a baguette and put your own
8:41 am
chemicals in the frozen one and put in 15 ingredients like tomatoes and mushrooms and things like that, you'd slash the sodium and the fat and you wouldn't have any added sugars. cooking home at scratch doesn't take a whole lot more time is the way we need to go to reduce our intake of these ultra processed food. >> not fair the chemicals are tricking us. >> they are tricking us and we don't realize that. >> so samantha's point, you would never go out and if you're making something at home, purchase methyl -- some of these things on the ingredients list we can't even pronounce or spell. >> you know what your family and kids are eating if you fix food at home from scratch. >> a group of foods can have big benefits for your health. they are called pulses. what are they? >> it's a pulse and not a heartbeat. they are in the legume and bean family.
8:42 am
chickpeas and beans and lentils. they help fix nitrogen in the health care. they are affordable and incredibly versatile. internationally they are a wonderful food to be adding and encouraging people to grow and consume. also locally as well because they are highly available and we can buy them anywhere. >> they are called super food and what makes them so good for you, holly? >> one of the very good things about the pulses, they are zero cholesterol but more importantly they are high in soluble fiber and that helps control the cholesterol levels in our body and keep our blood sugar levels steady which helps to prevent diabetes, ultimately. they are very nutrient rich. high in vitamins and minerals and especially iron, iron is one of the top deficiencies worldwide. what i like about emphasizing the pulses or this group of foods is that we talk a lot
8:43 am
and that sort of seems abstract. when we say actually you can replace meat, you know, once a day, once a week with these high protein foods, that's a really clear way to do it and something that can make a big difference for our health. >> it's so easy. you can have hummus and throw it in soups and make dips and sauces and tacos and can make cookies so beans are great. >> forget the cross word puzzles puzzles. a bit of chocolate could help keep your brain sharp! a thousand individuals were surveyed and they found people who eat chocolate once a week tend to perform better cog navety nave cognitively. >> the bad news and i'll defer to samantha. >> no bad news about chocolate! >> is more better? >> the thing is more is not better.
8:44 am
amounts of chocolate. in these studies a group they examined and we don't know how much each study the participants were consuming. the bitter, the darker, the better. you'll get the healthy flavonoids that holly mentioned and it can boost cognitive performance. >> thank you both for coming on. up next, the case of the disappearing ticket. whether you resell them or give them away or keep them for mementos. we may tell you why the move may be costing you money. you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday." waiting so long i' m jess. and we are the bug chicks. we're a nano-business. windows 10 really helps us get the word out about how awesome bugs are. i've got two tickets to paradise language of bug.

8:48 am
now more changes could put an end to another tradition. saving and treasuring those old-fashioned ticket stubs. so in the digital age, are we closing in on the death of the paper ticket? to answer that we turn to ashley roged, rodriguez. if it's not paper, how are we getting our tickets now? >> the whole process is moving online. it started off buying your tickets online through ticketmaster or stub hub and then pay for the tickets at home so you didn't have to wait in line to get them. now you don't need a paper ticket. a lot of times all you knee is your mobile phone. some venues you might be able to pull up a pdf or the e-mail confirmation showing your ticket. other times an app you yon load
8:49 am
you scan that and go right in at the gate. other instances you bring your credit card or i.d. and swipe that and you go in. >> is it easier or better for xurms consumers? >> it makes the line move quicker. you have copies of your ticket and don't have to worry about losing them so much or shuffling around and finding that paper and cuts down fraud a little bit as well because you don't have counterfitters counterfit counterfitters counterfit counterfeiters. most important to have the photo of yourself and friends you can share on social media or instagram than to have the paper ticket forever. >> we are seeing an example with the minnesota timberwolves and now they are sued over it. the more you learn about the case, this notion whoever is selling is going to get more profit from it. why are people upset in the
8:50 am
go paperless? >> the timberwolves have a company called flash speed. in addition to flash sheets offering this technology they are a market face you can buy, sell and transfer ticket. however, in this case, you can only buy and sell an transfer transtickets through flash seats and i think what upset a lot of fans on those who are season tickets before they knew this was the case is that they don't have the openness to go to different places, go to stub hub or ticketmaster and move those tickets. flash seat sets a minimum for resell that you can charge. >> in the case of like the timberwolves which has a horrible record this year, it means they may not be able to sell those tickets. >> exactly. exactly. there are fees on both the buyer and seller side you have to consider. >> you can't give it to someone? >> you can transfer but it has to be done through flash seats and has to be another flash seat user. if i bought tickets for me and a
8:51 am
transfer it to their name, i would have for them to enter the venue, they need to sign up for a flash seat account. >> getting very complicated to give away your tickets! >> somebody seems to be making money. >> now it's the team. ashley, thank you. rocking the vote. 25 years ago today r.e.m.'s classic album "out of time" was released. it changed the way we go to polls. unique piece of american history ahead. you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday."

release of an album that altered the music scene and our current voting system. r.e.m.'s 1991 album "out of time," was one of the early mainstream successes of the alternative music scene, but it was its packaging that helped bring about real change in the country. at the time, most cds were released in cardboard long boxes. this packaging helped with sales. but was seen as environmental wasteful by bands, including r.e.m. so when it came time for the release of their new album, the band and label came up with a compromise. they decided to use the back of the big box as a petition. the cause? a law that had failed to pass for decade, the motor voter bill, which would allow people to register to vote when they got their licenses at the dmv. >> dear senator. i support the motor voter bill. >> reporter: the result is history. the album flew off the shelves
