north of philadelphia injured seven children and two adults yesterday. don dahler is at the dolphins swim club in pennsylvania. how are the injured folks doing? >> reporter: good morning. nine people in total went to the hospital two with head injuries and one with a back injury. and as you said, it all happened here yesterday at this swim club near philadelphia when part of a tree fell on a tent. the nine people injured were taking cover under a pavilion tent when lightning hit a large trae nearby sending it crashing down on top of them. >> the severe weather came through the park. numerous trees are down. >> reporter: life guards helped get people out from under the tent before emergency responders arrived minutes later. firefighters cut the tree apart to make sure no one else was trapped underneath. rubin diaz's girlfriend was carrying his 1-year-old son when she was hit by the branches and fell to the ground. >> he's been crying. i can tell it hurts.

7:06 am
he says it is just a miracle no one was more seriously injured. tony? >> miracle indeed. thank you very much. meteorologist megan glaros of our chicago station wbbmtv is tracking more storms. are you telling us penvania could have to watch out for more severe weather? >> good morning. maybe calm across parts of pennsylvania right now but storms could rev up a little bit later today so through the overnight we've managed to lose some of the intensity but the heat, the humidity bubbling up in the eastern half of the united states is going to make the potential for more storms later on tonight. washington, d.c. will feel like 100 degrees today. new york city feels like 97 degrees. it is going to be about 111 for the heat index value in corp us christie, texas. washington, d.c. feeling like 102 tomorrow. while it is 50 million people suffering in the east about 10 million in the west. a lot of intensity there as

well. publo could hit a new record at 101 today. looking at 113 degrees in phoenix for tomorrow. while that bubbles up storms fire. that's later on this afternoon across portions of the east coast working into the midwest tomorrow there is the potential once again for some strong storms to bubble up. it's going to be another active day. gayle? >> we got it. thank you very much, megan. an avowed white nationalist is expected to be arraigned later today in ohio after allegedly plotting a mass shooting against jews. his name is james reardon. he is 20 years old. at least two more alleged shooting plots in other states have been broken up in the past week. tristan wix was arrested in florida and brandon wagshol was picked up in connecticut. meg oliver is here with a look at how social media played a role. >> authorities say all of the suspects shared their plans either online or with other people. their conversations and social media posts eventually got to the police.
7:08 am
according to the fbi as these types of threats rise they are not always reported in time. james reardon allegedly posted this disturbing video on instagram in july showing him firing a semiautomatic rifle over the sound of people screaming. the caption appeared to foreshadow plans to attack a local jewish community center. after an investigation by ohio police, fbi agents raided reardon's home on friday uncovering semiautomatic weapons, ammunition, a gas mask, and bullet proof armor. a day later police arrested him. >> do you have any weapons we need to know about? >> reporter: several states away police on friday arrested 25-year-old tristan wix in a florida grocery store parking lot reportedly after a tip from his ex-girlfriend. in an august 11th text message to her, wix allegedly wrote, a school is a weak target. i'd be more likely to open fire on a large crowd of people from over three miles away. a good 100 kills would be nice.
7:09 am
i already have a location. in connecticut, friday, brandon wagshol appeared in court after his arrest for illegal possession of large capacity magazines. police claim wagshol expressed interest in committing mass shootings on facebook but his lawyer says that is not wagshol's intention. an fbi study shows more than 50% of active shooters share their plans beforehand but those critical warning signs are reported to law enforcement less than half the time. >> are copy cat crimes becoming a competitive sport? >> actually they are. >> cbs news security analyst paul viollis is urging people to speak up if they see threats online. >> we can turn this around with respect to active shooters but if we don't we'll be back here probably in the next week or so if not less. >> james reardon's arraignment hearing is expected in an ohio court later this morning. he is in jail on a $250,000 bond
7:10 am
as the connecticut suspect brandon wagshol. tristan wix is in a florida jail without bond. anthony? >> thank you. president trump is back at the white house after a more than week-long vacation. he and his advisers are pushing back against the idea that a recession could be coming and they're also watching china's response to protesters in hong kong. chip reid is at the white house. the president is trying to give beijing some advice. >> reporter: indeed, he is. he is suggesting that the chinese government handle those protesters in hong kong carefully. as for the economy, he said he's ready for anything but at the same time he said he does not expect a recession. >> i think it would be very hard to deal if they do violence. >> reporter: sending a signal to chinese president xi jinping on sunday president trump warned government retaliation against protesters in hong kong could threaten a potential trade deal with the u.s. >> president xi obviously has
7:11 am
this in mind because he probably would have acted faster. >> reporter: even so the president suggested he might not pull back on tariffs against china any time soon. >> i'm just not ready to make a deal yet. >> reporter: the u.s. economy has been a bright spot for donald trump's presidency. he has overseen a flourishing job market with a nearly 50-year low unemployment rate and a generally strong stock market. but last week the dow plunged 800 points in one day. >> the biggest single day drop of the year as investors forecast concerns with the global economy. the white house is now working to project calm. >> i sure don't see a recession. >> reporter: even mr. trump conceded his trade war with china is affecting the markets. >> if i wanted to make a bad deal and settle on china, the market would go up. >> reporter: last week mr. trump announced a delay on some tariffs against china as studies show the tariffs would have cost americans an average of $270 a year, potential impacts mr. trump's advisers are brushing off. >> the tariffs are working.
7:12 am
they're an important part of the strategy to bring the chinese to the negotiating table. >> reporter: white house chief economic adviser larry kudlow said if talks with the chinese go well over the next ten days then chinese officials will come here to the united states to continue those talks. tony? >> all right, chip. thank you very much. china lashed out at taiwan this morning over its offer of political asylum to supporters of hong kong's pro democracy movement. yesterday hundreds of thousands of protesters marched through the streets of the former british colony despite heavy rain. organizers said at least 1.7 million people took part overall and police said the demonstration was mostly peaceful. this morning britain's prince andrew is responding to sexual abuse allegations against jeffrey epstein for the first time since his long-time friend hanged himself in jail. queen elizabeth's middle son says in a statement through buckingham palace that he is appalled by epstein's alleged crimes. that follows newly released video showing andrew inside epstein's new york mansion back
7:13 am
in 2010. charlie d'agata is outside buckingham palace with more on this. is this statement unusual? unusual and the very fact the palace decided to release the statement at all just shows you how seriously they're taking this situation. here's why. it was in response to this video allegedly showing prince andrew waving good-bye to a young woman at epstein's manhattan mansion purportedly shot in 2010 and taken less than an hour after epstein left the house with another young woman. the prince even appears to check that no one was looking but cameras were, which has forced buckingham palace to state, his royal highness deplores the exploitation of any human being and the suggestion he would condone, participate in, or encourage any such behavior is abhorrent. abhorrent but the accusations go back to at least 2001 in this picture showing prince andrew with alleged victim virginia
7:14 am
gufray who is only 15 at the time and the british socialite ghislain maxwell. she says maxwell acted as a madame passing her around to epstein's friends. >> it started with one and trickled to two and so on and before you know it i'm being lent out to politicians and academics and to people that -- royalty. >> reporter: unsealed court documents allege she was trafficked to prince andrew, a claim that was previously dismissed by a judge and struck from the record. the royal correspondent says the palace finally had too react. >> ever since jeffrey epstein died there has been speculation about what further evidence could come out about the duke of york. with this statement the palace had to be pretty confident no further evidence is going to come forward further implicating the duke of york and his connection with jeffrey epstein. >> reporter: it is important to note this happened in 2010. this is two years after epstein was charged and found guilty of sex crimes.
7:15 am
critics say prince andrew should have cut off the relationship there and then. anthony? >> all right. charlie d'agata in london. thanks. an interesting piece in the "new york times" over the weekend on epstein's last days in prison. 750 prisoners in the metropolitan correctional center and only 18 guards staffed, ten working overtime. >> you see why they are overworked there when you look at the numbers. >> very interesting reporting. iran is warning the u.s. not to retake a seized super tanker released overnight. j gibraltar rejected an american appeal to retain the tanker longer. it is allegedly carrying sanctioned oil and heading toward greece. imitiaz tyab is entrepreneur iran with a look at this. >> reporter: iran is still holding a british oil tanker and reportedly trying to get around u.s. sanctions. in the first ever interview with an american tv network a top member of iran's elite
7:16 am
revolutionary guard bluntly criticizes u.s. actions. >> translator: he says the u.s. is behaving like pirates and called president trump a gangster. tough talk from iran's powerful revolutionary guard. but there is another sanctions battle being fought in iran, this time at a children's hospital. where it is every parent's worst nightmare. learning your child's cancer has come back, adding to the agony the cocktail of drugs the 4-year-old needs to stay alive simply isn't available. his mom tells me he is her only child. the most doctors can do for him now is keep him comfortable. iran produces most of its own pharmaceuticals but when it comes to the most advanced medicines it relies heavily on imports and that's how sanctions can have an effect. technically, medicines are exempt from u.s. sanctions but the financial transactions to purchase them on the global
7:17 am
marketplace are not. imports have dropped by 80%. are people losing their lives because they can't get this drug? >> yes. >> reporter: what do you say to a parent whose child has cancer that the drug is available outside of iran but you can't bring it into iran? what do you say to them? >> i just tell them to pray and be sure that we are with we know your pain. >> reporter: doctors don't know exactly how many children have died because of this inability to bring in medicine. but as the ceo of the charity told us, with 80% fewer drugs coming in, you only have to do the math. anthony? >> thanks. tomorrow gayle talks with secretary of state mike pompeo about iran, china, hong kong, and other important issues. that's tomorrow right here on "cbs this morning." >> a lot to discuss with him. a new series of bombings hit
7:18 am
restaurants and public squares in afghanistan this morning. it happened in the city of jalalabad as the country marked its 100th anniversary of independence. officials say at least 72 people were hurt and it follows a suicide bombing at a wedding in kabul on saturday. at least 53 people were killed there and nearly 200 wounded. a local isis affiliate has claimed responsibility for that. this morning we're remembering a long-time member of the cbs family, jack whitaker, a legendary sportscaster, died yesterday of natural causes in his sleep at his pennsylvania home. during his 22 years at this network he called some of the greatest sports moments in history including the first super bowl and the 1973 triple crown victory. he was also a decorated world war ii veteran. jack whitaker was 95 dwreeyears. >> did you know him? >> i remember seeing jack whitaker as a kid. i was working in a political

massachusetts senator elizabeth warren. she faced back larn last year for releasing a dna test. polls show she is now in second place here in iowa and voters in native american activists we have spoken to say that dna flap is much ado about nothing even though the president occasionally makes light of it. they say a slight increase in the turnout of 5.2 million native americans across the country could help tip the scales in states like arizona, michigan, and north carolina. and while much of the focus from democratic presidential candidates these days is here in iowa and new hampshire, states with pro dominantly white voters, on friday several were at a forum in atlanta with black church leaders and four of them spent the weekend in south carolina, the early primary state, with the largest block of african-american voters. gayle. >> thank you very much. there is a new push to make sure that every eligible ballot is counted in 2020. it's led by stacey abrams, the

8:06 am
the laws of the 1960s that forbade voting for of african-americans. what we're talking about is whether you can register and stay on the rolls, whether you can cast your ballot and whether your ballot is counted. we have to think about that because over the last 20 years we have seen numerous laws propagated that have eroded your ability to do those things especially if you are in a community of color or a skmunt seen as less valuable to the republican party. >> you say it's no longer hoses? >> it isn't. >> it's no longer hoses in the streets? it's much more insidious. these laws look racially and facially neutral. you realize that, for example, in north dakota they passed a law saying you have to have a residential address on your driver's license. most native americans don't have those because they live on reservations. therefore, they disenfranchised
8:07 am
thousands of native americans. we have to think about what the law does. >> what do you say to people who say voter i.d. laws or exact match policies are protecting the election process? >> voter fraud is a myth. it does not exist. people aren't putting on fake mustaches trying to vote twice. voter suppression is real. voter i.d. laws seem perfectly normal. if yiv in abama when they passed that law, they shut down two-thirds ever the dmvs in black communities so the people who needed the i.d.s would not be able to get them. if you live in indiana where they move your polling place in hamilton county outside of the bounds of the city, if you didn't have a car, you couldn't get to vote. you have to recognize these laws seem very basic, but the application and the implication is that your vote doesn't matter. that's why fair fight is designed to go beyond registration. we focus on voter protection. get you on the rolls, making

sure you stay on the rolls, and making sure your ballot is cast and kourchted. >> you have said that elections are rigged, which is a word that president trump has used. in using a word like rigged, it's a frightening word. does it contribute to a possible scenario where people on either side of an election outcome don't accept the results? >> there is a lot made of the fact that i didn't concede my election. trump refuses to acknowledge the legal sufficiency or threatens not to. my point is that the laws are wrong. we have to fix the laws because as long as we have eligible american citizens who cannot cast a ballot, the game is rigged. in a democracy, you should be allowed make injury voiyour voi. if there are rules that should not exist, that's a problem for america. >> you mentioned not conceding the achair of the rnc.
8:09 am
if stacey abrams cared about integrity of election she would concede the georgia governor's race she lost by 55,000 votes. instead she is on national tv today still thinking she's won. why haven't you conceded? >> because that means to say that the process was fair. but when i run an organization that in ten days between election night and the night i refused to concede we received more than 50,000 phone calls of people who were denied the right to vote. i am complicit if i say that system is fair. i did not deny the legal sufficiency of the election. i am not claiming to be the governor of governor. what i said is that we won the battle of making sure more voices were heard because we had the highest record turnout in georgia for democrats. >> and your opponent was -- >> was in charge of the process. the other thing to remember, look, because there are more people in the water that doesn't mean there are fewer sharks. yocan have higher turnout. that doesn't diminish the fact that voter suppression is real. >> you are not running for

and janet hampton, who have been coming to the fair sincethyigate married half a century ago. >> i have a lot of friends who are republicans. they're saying the same thing, we have to worth together now. >> whoever democrats nominate, it's got to be someone willing to work with republicans? both hamptons are concerned about climate change and turned off by the president's approach to immigration. >> we're all immigrations. bar none. >> your state has a reputation of being nice. you see all this fighting that goes on in washington. >> i don't like it. sit down and talk about it. communication. don't say republican, democrat. >> keep your mouth shut. >> yeah. >> most eating at the fair happens on the go. >> this is going to be good. >> with more than 80 food items available on a stick. but the fair is also a display of iowa's farming. and one of the most popular sites is the famous butter cow, attracting tens of thousands of people each day. about 85% of iowa tfs land is used for agriculture. it exports about $10 billion in output each year, but that's
8:36 am
been on the decline because of the fight over trade and tariffs. >> can i get a jumbo brisket. >> for lunch, we visited the rib shack, where we caught up with a farmer and her friend, jane ackerman. >> one thing i have heard said every time the president sends out one of those tweets about china or trade, a farmer is potentially losing thousands if not hundreds of thousands of dollars. >> yeah. tens of thousands of dollars can be lost if you're looking out for the country, if you're looking out for the family farmer, we don't need to have controversy like that. >> it affects us. small businesses, big time. they don't have a good year, they're not going to be buying a $10,000 mower in the spring. >> ackerman and her family sell golf carts and lawn mowers in eastern iowa. while business is good, they're feeling the impact of the president's policies. >> right now, we're having huge problems getting parts to fix mowers. we can't fix it because we can't
8:37 am
get the parts. and that's hard. very hard. >> gent, a democrat, likes former vice president joe biden and massachusetts senator elizabeth warren, but she's keeping an open mind. >> before the election, i want to see everybody that i am interested in. >> i am a registered republican. >> okay. >> and i'm just ready for change. >> you voted for him four years ago? >> yes, i did. >> and he hasn't delivered necessarily. >> i don't feel like he has. >> amid the throngs of people who come to this fair every year, about two dozen people who want to be president. were you here for any of the presidential candidates? you see any of them? >> i saw some, but i don't stop and listen to them. >> are you participating in the caucus in february? >> yeah. >> have you picked a candidate yet? >> no. >> any of the blue ones. >> from one food stand, we followed max and his girlfriend brett, young democrats who support medicare for all. >> you both have health care? >> yeah. >> through work? >> yeah. >> you're willing to part ways with that.
8:38 am
>> absolutely. through my job, i still have a $to,000 deductible. i would rather pay some in taxes up front and know that i can go to the doctor whenever i feel like i need to. >> she recently moved to des moines from dayton, ohio, and was shook by the recent mass shooting there. >> that was 15 minutes away from my house. there's even a level of i will lie awake today and be like, ork, we're going to the fair later. >> something could happen here? >> yeah, it's really terrifying. i'm fairly firmly pro gun control. at the end of the day, i think we have to try something, though, because doing nothing has just made it worse and worse and worse. >> fun at the fair continues well after dark with rides, live music, and beer. we grabbed a drink at this craft beer tent where we met a voter president trump will have to keep if he wants to keep iowa in november. >> i want somebody who is going to tell it like it is, and you may not like what he tells, but he tells it the way he sees it. >> one voter the president may need to win back, soybean farmer
8:39 am
amy stout, who says she supports the administration's tariffs strategy. >> he's rocking boats right now, trump is. and i don't know if it's a bad thing. so i'm going to sit back and wait. >> you're open to voting for a democrat even though you're a president trump supporter? >> absolutely. i want to see someone who changes what happens in our farm commute, our small business community, our health insurance. >> boy, do i love coming to iowa. and not only important to come here because it's an early primary state, but because it's also a swing state in the general election. barack obama won here in 2008 and 2012 before president trump defeated hillary clinton here in 2016. so it's an enticing target. for whoever the democrat is in a close election, those could tip the scales. >> your trusted anchor team wants to take a field trip to iowa. >> i saw very few people of color. i think i saw a black guy in the background. you and i need to go to the fair
8:40 am
together. >> gayle, i will tell you this. we couldn't walk 50 yards through that fair without people saying they watch us every morning. if the four of us showed up, we would get mobbed. >> 80 food items on the stick did you try, ed? >> only about three of them, anthony. >> many elections still to cover. >> bacon. >> i'm game. >> still recovering here. >> thank you, ed o'keefe. >> we appreciate it. we'll be there soon, i hope. >> millions of kids are going back to school after the year's summer vacations.

one and carry the fun. are you guys getting this? >> uh-huh. oh, and mommy, don't forget there's more on the back. and show your work. >> show your work. >> millions of children head back to school, some parents like tracee ellis ross's character in black-ish might need help getting their kids to focus on their studies. researchers have found the typical student is distracted for 5 out of every 15 minutes they set aside to study, and i think they're underestimated. james clear is author of "the new york times" best seller atomic habits, a proven way to make good habits and break bad
8:45 am
ones. he's here to help parents get their kids back into a routine for the school year. i'm take agkid back to college next week who is going to be clinging to summer, i know, with the tips of his fingernails. how do you get a kid to shift their focus? >> good question. well, first, i think we should say there's going to be a wide difference in study habits for say a second grader versus say a junior in college. >> are you sure? >> so different strategies work in different stages i guess is my point. one thing i think does apply across all stages is an idea in the book that i talk about called habit stacking. you take whatever habits you currently do, so let's say for example, at the end of dinner, you -- one habit we have is we clean our plate and then put it in the dishwasher. you could stack the study habit on top. after you put your plate in the dishwasher, you immediately open your book on the table. especially as you get into school again, you're really trying to build that routine. whether it's after dinner or as soon as you walk in from school or whatever, building a habit
8:46 am
stack that's reliable and consistent is a good way to get started. >> does environment matter? >> of course. if you walk in, if you walk home and you open up the door and you kid sees a video game controller on the floor and the tv is on, that's an environment where it's easy to be distracted. versus walking in and like the table is clean, there's a space to put their books, the tv is behind the cabinet or a wall unit, the video game controller is tucked away. that's an environment that much more prime for studying. i think that's one role parents can play, to try to prime the environment to make it easy to get into studying. >> in a small apartment, it can be difficult. we mentioned for every 15 minutes a kid is studying, for 5 minutes, he's probably distracted. how do you change that ratio? >> that's a good question. a lot of times we get distracted because of phones. as students get older, they start to get their own phones and they're creeping in and distracting. some of that is personal, like
8:47 am
digital habit hygiene, turning off notifications or putting it on silent. there's a device called a kitchen safe. you can lock it, so you can program it to lock for like an hour. you could when you start the study session, put your phone in the tupperware, lock it, and set it aside. >> you were showing me your phone. i have never seen a hope screen like this. >> i don't know if you can see it, but the home screen of my phone doesn't have apps on the main screen. i just have the bar down here. if i want to get to the apps, they're there. i can swipe over and they're inside folders and what not. >> just one step. >> when i wanted to build a reading habit, i put audible for audio books and pocket in the bottom. the first thing i saw were apps that prompted me to read. you can think about this for both a digital environment and physical. you're trying to reduce the number of steps between you and the productive behaviors and increase the number of steps between you and the -- >> should you ever incentivize kids, even pay them to do their homework? >> you know, external rewards
8:48 am
sometimes get criticized. you don't want to pay them and they only get good grades because they're getting paid to to it. but the truth is we use external rewards all the time. like you get paid every two weeks for your job, and that's an external reward that helps to get you to show up. the key is you want to reward the process and not the outcome. there's two very different things between saying hey, you're rewarded for studying vocab every night or doing flash cards versus you're rewarded for getting a good grade on a test. >> when the question was phrased should they get paid for doing your homework, i didn't like it, but paid for getting an "a" that's not so bad. >> you're trying to build an identity of being a lifelong learner, someone who is curious, who takes responsibility for their studying and learning. if you can say we really care about this in this household, being a lifelong learner is the most important thing, and in fact, we care about it so much that we're going to reward for it, the signal you should get when you get paid to study or paid to get a good grade is not
8:49 am
that you should only study when you get paid. it's that we're re-enforcing being a lifelong learner. >> all these habits can work for parents, too. >> all these can work for parents, too. >> you're going to tell us how to focus and succeed. >> i hope i was able to help. >> i want to know how to succeed. one sentence. >> you do not rise to the level of your goals, you fall to the level of your systems. success isn't about the goal, but the system that you follow. >> say hello to your lovely wife. >> thank you. before we go, the career move that led a young man to it's time for the biggest sale of the year on the
