7:09 am
acknowledged they failed to diagnose ebola on him. they blamed it on a technical flaw, claiming electronic records of the nurse did not link up with the doctors who treated him. late last night the hospital issued a statement saying there was no technical flaw and those records were available to the doctor but did not explain why duncan was allowed to go home, potentially exposing others to ebola. there are also questions why relatives in the apartment with duncan were not immediately kwarp teened allowing them to have contact with others. this team has been monitored all those potentially exposed to duncan. stephanie shrack is their supervisor. >> are these people scared? >> i would say that the community is going through probably one of the most difficult times in their lives and i would encourage a lot of sympathy for the community. they are scared.

7:12 am
>> reporter: u.s. health officials maintain the immediate focus should be on the source of the outbreak containing and stemming the virus in west africa where the death toll has reached 3,439 people. on friday they say as many a 4,000 military personnel could be sent to the region. >> we're not going in the treatment business. >> reporter: spokesman john carly said at this time those servicemembers will not be dealing with those in contact with ebola. >> they're going to establish it so health care workers can do what i what they can do. >> reporter: so far they set up two testing labs. they broke ground on friday with the foist 17 treatment units which will each be able to hold. all military personnel will be constantly teflted for symptoms and undergo training for deployment on what to watch for. on friday the house energy and

7:14 am
africa in places that have essentially no health care system. we do. so for instance we can treat fever. if your have trouble breathing. if your kidneys fail we can give dialysis. our system is in a much better position to help people who have the virus. >> one thing we keep hearing from pundits is we're going to see more cases being imported into the u.s. do you think that's a reality? >> i do. i don't think we're going to see a large-scale outbreak here but the more cases we see in west africa, the more cases we will see here. you know, screening isn't perfect. people leaving west africa are screened. we look for fever. >> and as you mentioned there's an eight to ten-day period or even 21 days before they show symptoms. >> absolutely. there's a very long period of incubation with ebola. the good news is it can't be
7:15 am
transmitted unless you have symptoms. so during your incubation period, you are not con teenagers. >> the screening process relies on people leaving west africa filling out exit forms, correct? we're relying on information we might not always get. >> clearly the screening process is not perfect. on the other hand tens of thousands have traveled to west africa since this virus took hold and we've seen one case in the u.s. that's one case too many but in the grand scheme of things we're not seeing too many. >> thanks so much. are you going to stick around for "morning rounds? sround?" >> yes. you can hear more tomorrow on ""face the nation."" israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu on developments in the middle east. the national parks service is assessing the damage this morning after a fire that damaged three buildings at the flight 93 national memorial in
7:16 am
shanksville, pennsylvania. the cause of the fire remains unclear unclear. there were no injuries. there's concern some of the artifacts may have been damaged. the flight went down killing all passengers and crew when they fought back against hijackers. >> highs in southern california will be in triple digits with 90s reaching all the way to the san francisco bay area. some areas could hit 104. there's also a red flag warning for wildfires as hot dry winds blow across the state. president obama says the u.s. economy is on a roll during a visit to an indiana steel plant on friday. the president said his economic policies are making a difference. he said thatcited the latest department report showing 210,000 jobs added in september. >> the unemployment rate it fell from 6.1 to 5.9
7:17 am
. what that means is that the up employment rate is below 6% for the first time in six years and we're on pace for the strongest job growth since the 1990s. >> the president says u.s. job creation is outpacing the combined job creation in other major nations and he again called for an increase in the minimum wage. for more on jobs and the health of the u.s. economy let's talk to senior columnist for yahoo! michael santilli. good morning. >> good morning. we're at 5.9%. it feels awfully close. are we at a strong place? >> we're getting stronger. things have gotten better, somewhat more quickly than anticipated. and the number of jobs 248,000 last month. that's good to hear. really for the last 12 months the monthly average has been
7:18 am
220,000 new jobs. that's very healthy. >> michael, there's one sign in the report. hourly wage is not going up. why aren't wages increasing? >> that's related to the other part of the job report which isn't as encouraging, which is the sheer number of idle underemployed workers. so we still have 7 million people working part time who would prefer a full-time job. that's a 2 million-person kind of pool working all the time. that shows the employers have more bargaining power. they're not bidding up wages at least not yet. what we need to see, we need to see that slack in the market taken up by a more extended job recovery which really should bring wage as i long with it. >> you mentioned this labor market. where are we seeing it? >> in the latest report it wu professional and business services which was a broad
7:19 am
category of white collar workers. one of the areas we're not really seeing it as a driver is construction. so that housing market haas kind of stalled out a little bit or at least not improved at a very past pace. it's a relatively broad improvement but it's mostly now in the sort of office worker part of the economy. also teachers was a bright spot. >> i think a lot of people look alt these numbers and say, well maybe it's getting better but i don't feel it. when will they start to feel it? >> when they say they don't feel it, it means the income is not improving. it's not lifted to the extent we would hope six or five years into the recovery. so i do think it's matter of trying to prolong the recovery. it should bring wages and income higher. only then will people feel it. >> thank you for being with us this morning. time to show you some of this morning's headlines.

rounds." joining us is dr. jon lapook and cbs contributor dr. holly phillips. there's a new recommendation for teen contraceptives. jon? >> every year women under the age of 17 become pregnant most unintentionally. they put out new recommendations to prevent unwanted pregnancies. when kaniesha hans was in high school and wanted birth control, her doctor offered her the pill. but it caused bad side effects
7:38 am
so she got the iud. >> i think the great thing is you go in and have it inserted by any sort of professional and then you don't have to thing about it for three or five or ten years. >> they're now saying the first line contraceptive choice for adolescents is iuds. dr. rebecca o'brien is a member of the recommending committee. >> the research shows that they're just as safe in adolescents and young adults as they are in older women, that they really do not have any long-term risks associated with them. >> condoms and the pill are currently the most common forms of contraception, but mistakes are often made. for example, the pill is 99.7% effective if used perfectly but only 91% effective with typical use. condoms are only 80%. iuds are more than 99% effective
7:39 am
with use. >> most add lengths take the pill. what is wrong with that? >> it requires a lot from the user. and adolescents like the rest of us have a lot of their pill and it's hard to take a pill every day. it's har hard to it's hard to get to the pharmacy every month to get your birth control. >> they're kind of like sperm sides. the pill works by preventing ovulation, so the egg doesn't actually get released from the ovary and also does set up a hostile environmental for sperm too. some iuds have hormones in it and make it difficult for sperm to enter the uterus. >> in the '70s iuds got a bad rap. they caused infections or increased infections. what's changed. >> you're right. it was the dalkon shield that
7:40 am
was linked with infections but since then we have research that shows they're incredibly safe and the likelihood of getting an infection is really, really low. so these are quite ideal for teens in that they can stay in place -- well iuds can stay in place for three, five or ten years and some of the implantable birth control that can go under the arms or rods can stay there as well. it's 100% effective and teens can't forget to take it. >> jon, when you think of teenagers and birth control, you usually think of condoms. is the academy saying forget that? >> definitely they're not saying forget that. they're encouraging the use of condoms for those kids who are sexually active. the iud, the birth control pill does nothing. so it's important to use that in addition to those. >> the enterovirus has taken a dangerous new turn. it's spread from 12 to 40 states
7:41 am
in just three weeks. now the doctors worry that the virus is linked to the deaths of four patients including a girl in rhode island. how does this spread? >> very easy like the common code. it is a cause of the common code and there are many different varieties of the virus. this one enterovirus d68 has been relatively rare. we think of coughing sneezing. you touch something that a sick person has touched and touch your nose and your mouth. that's how it's spread. >> what's the link between end row virus and paralysis? >> now we're seeing cases of kids having weakness in arms and legs after having an infection with d68. and it's not clear whether this is cause and effect. there are ten kids in denver. i spoke to somebody from the cdc who said even though the virus was present in the respiratory secretions, it wasn't present in the spinal fluid. is it unrelated?
7:42 am
is the virus now attacking the nervous system or is it not the virus attacking the nervous system but your immune response to the virus gets refused, sets up anti-body reactions that attacks your own nervous system by mistake. there's a new concern about living by a highway. it reports women that live one 100 meet iss of a highway or major road that's about 330 feet increase their hypertension risk by 22%. that's compared to men who luv a thousand meters away ten times as far. americans have a new way of checking up on their doctor. a financial base lists medical doctors and drug companies. it's part of the affordable care act. it certainly feels like in every realm people want more transparency and that's what this will offer. >> sure. in many ways this is a good
7:43 am
thing. basically this is so patients have access to understanding the relationship their doctors might have with drug companies, equipment manufacturers, medical device manufacturers, and these things actually have been monitored in the past. teaching hospitals are very closely monitored. whether or not their doctors relationships with these drug companies. but this is the next step where patients will have easy access to that information as well. >> jon, how big a problem is it? how much do we need to be concerned when the doctor prescribes a medication or some kind of medical device? >> i think it certainly is a problem in terms of the scope. i think we're going to find out more and more as it becomes transparent. i should say i went online last night and didn't find it the easiest thing to do, i mean surprise, surprise. the government website that's trying to reach out to doctors. it took me a long time to download the list of doctors. i wasn't on it i was happy to see, but in trying to do a search of one doctor at a timer
7:44 am
very clunky. they need to do more work on their website. >> is it money? is that why some of the doctors have ties to big pharma? >> doctors are in a unique position to advocate with the patient and the drug companies so they can develop and create new drugs that will serve patient needs, but also the drug companies can't sell medications unless the doctors distribute it. so i think more transparency is good. it will make sure that everybody is focusing on the patient rather than the financial bottom line. finally this week do you like a big breakfast? here's an 8,000 calorie one. it comes from a british cafe chef who says no one has finished it yet. you need to sign a disclaimer. eight pieces of sa bacon, eight pieces of sausage, beans, tomatoes eggs hash browns

you have probably heard about the man here in new york who allegedly kicked a stray cat hard and posted the video online. that drew a debate over animal abuse and the u.s. just us the system. the defenders say if he had kicked a person he would have walked away with plea bargain but punishment for an animal abuser is often harsher and some say disproportionate to the crime. let's talk to analyst rickykki
7:49 am
klieman man. it's unbelievable how many are talking about this. >> they published 1, 600 comments overnight, 7,700 comments on facebook. this is the kind of thing, in the old days if we ever had a case involving the abuse of an animal, the ratings went skyrocketing up. this is a case that makes people's blood boil. >> what's interesting in this case is the man involve here in new york city has not receive add plea bargain, which is pretty unusual, isn't it? >> i think it's extraordinarily unusual. this is a guess, baseded on mile position as a defense lawyer and covering cases. it's covered so much plus you have animal rights activists who have come to his court dates. so my guess is probably the government has said look, we may have to give you some jail time. this guy has a prior record, by the way. not involved with animal abuse but he is not simply a
7:50 am
first-time offender. and on the other side of it his lawyer's saying, hey wait a minute, this case is usually disposed of by a probation. well things have changed. not only here. we can go far and wide around the country and find out what's happened in other states and, by the way, with the fbi. the fbi has taken cases of animal abuse, elevated them to a felony. you have cases, massachusetts has upped its animal cruelty punishment up to seven years. a case in virginia where a man was sentenced to a full year. a case in texas, man was sentenced for five years for dragging a donkey. not much different than kicking a cat. so the ante has gone up. this is what i say to you and to our viewers. i thunk that punishment should fit the crime. if you kick a cat something should happen to you.
7:51 am

it was 87 years ago today that a rock face situated in south dakota got a new identity, four to be exact. mt. rushmore national memorial features 60 foot stone faces of washington jefferson, roosevelt, and lincoln. at just under 1.3 acres it's one of the largest monuments on the face of the earth, bigger than both the statue of liberty and the great stakes of egypt. on october 4th 1927 400 workers started out carving the head of george washington using jackhammers and dynamite. after 14 arduous years and 500,000 tons of blasted granite, the four sculptures were completed in 1941.
7:56 am
today mt. rushmore is still one of the nation's top tourist designations. every year 2.5 million visitors travel to see this manmade wonder that cost less than $1 million to carve. for the first time in 20 years, the lights will go off on a mon mum for three consecutive nights starting this monday. the national park service is installing a more modern and efficient lighting system. it's expected to illuminate the presidential faces like we've never seen them before proof you can change some things, even if they're carved in stone. >> wow that's going to look fantastic, i think. >> you know what's interesting? people are always polling. do you think there should be a fifth president? apparently they couldn't add one if they wanted to. the rocks couldn't support it. >> very interesting. coming up, a bizarre incident in argentina. the host of a show "top gear"

8:01 am
islamic terrorist group known as isis. >> he was held captive since he was captured last december. charlie d'agata is in our london bureau with more. good morning. >> good morning to you. this morning prime minister david cameron condemned the beheading of alan henning. he described it as ruthless senseless, and barbaric. the 47-year-old who was working delivering aid. he was described as a regular guy, taxi driver father of two, who went to syria to help muslims in need. there was hope he would be spared leaving muss lethbridges here to direct his release. the apparent executioner, he said the blood is on the hands of the british government. the british have begun air strikes in iraq along with other u.s. allies. the video ended with yet another captive who's been identified at
8:02 am
26-year-old peter kassig from indianapolis with the threat he, too, would be executed unless the u.s. and its allies stop bombing isis. >> thank you. in syria this morning president bashar al assad made a rare appearance. he attended prayers for the beginning of an important muslim holiday. assad has seldom appeared in public since the start of the syrian war three years ago. the outbreak of the deadly ebola disease is the worst in history. the world health organization reports that the death toll is now more than 3,400, of just under 7,500 cases. nearly all in west africa. here in the u.s. the federal government says it is ready to deal with the ebola threat. >> there may be another case, but the reason that we feel confident is that our structure, our ability to do those things
8:03 am
would preclude an outbreak. >> the government announced tougher screenings for passengers arriving on international flights and stricter guidelines for expanded training for local health professionals. in texas officials are ramping up efforts to stop ebola from spreading. after the nation's first diagnosis there. they have taken steps to sanitize thomas duncan's apartment and monitor people who came into contact with him. manuel bojorquez is in dallas. good morning, manuel. >> reporter: good morning. duncan's condition has not changed in several days. he is still listed as serious here at texas health presbyterian hospital. officials have narrowed down the list of people who have been exposed to him of 150 but only ten of those are considered to be at higher risk. all of those people are being closely monitored. that includes at least four family members who were quarantined in the apartment they share with duncan. they have now been moved to an
8:04 am
undisclosed location and a hazmat crew was brought in to deacon tam nate that apartment. there have been several missteps in the way this case has been handled, but officials are confident it will not spread here and they point out that so far no one else has shown symptoms. anthony? >> manuel bojorquez in dallas. thank you, manuel. the british tv show "top gear gear" is no stranger to controversy. there was a riot and it all started over a license plate. the host and crew of "topgear" a show about car culture were forced to leave argentina under a police escort. dozens of angry locals threw rocks and shouted insults as the globe-trotting documentary members bolted for the border. they made it safely to chile but
8:05 am
they had to abandon their badly damaged cars that were confiscated by the police. what caused the roadside rage? this license plate. some argentines took that as a reference to the 1982 faulklklands war. they invaded the faulkland islands from the shore trying but ultimately failing to take it from britain. the hosts of "topgear" are no strangers to controversy. in 2011 the bbc apologized to mexico over comments that characterized mexicans as lazy. and earlier this year clarkson was accuse of making a racial slur while filming on location in burma. but "topgear" producers are
8:06 am
issuing no apologies for this allegedly provocative plate. a bbc executive denied any intent to insight argentines or steer up decades-old war memories. >> jeremy clarkson and his crew returned to london safely this morning. it may still sound like science fiction but asteroids are a real threat to earth. some thing old but still functional nuclear weapons could be used to destroy a big one on a collision course with the earth. nasa has revealed its plans to capture an asteroid and board it for study. jeffrey kluger is here. good morning. >> good morning. >> some of these plans sound like real science fiction. >> they do. they sound out like they're a little over the edge. >> let's start out with the asteroid. this plan of using nuclear weapons has a lot of detractors. >> it does. take a nuclear weapon put it on
8:07 am
top of a rocket. what could go wrong. they would use this only for a rock that was very big and very close to earth that we couldn't get rid of in any other shut ler ways, and there are better ways to do it. the fact is nasa is tracking about 600,000 asteroids and about 11,000 of them are quite close to earth although none of them have hit it. so we think we know where they are but we got blind-sided when the russians got hit in 2013. there are all kinds of dangers out there. >> i'm still intrigued by bringing an asteroid in to study it. what exactly are they considering doing? >> the plan is to go to the asteroid belt between mars and jupiter, find a rock that is 30 feet across. that's very important because it's 30 feet and if they
8:08 am
misplaced it and it barreled to earth it was be less. they want to come back periodically to study the campo composition of it. they're considered the bones of the old solar system. the good news is the gravity is so low you can land on it very easily and jump back off so you don't need big engines and a lot of fuel. >> how does that work? it sounds like there's a robotic arm. >> it sounds like an idea people came up with when they didn't have enough sleep. it involves a robotic arm or putting it in a bag and then using an ion propulsion engine. all you do is slightly excel accelerate very very slowly but over time that slow acceleration becomes big acceleration and then you can steer it toward the moon and put it in a stable lunar orbit. >> what's the benefit of doing this jeffrey? >> there are a couple of pos benefits. one is, again, that asteroids
8:09 am
are the very earliest parts of the solar system. it's like finding an old artifact buried in the sand in the desert. it's a way to study the ancient era of the solar system. the other idea is we can practice home study. we can practice what it's like to live on an alien world where the conditions are harsh and forbidding and use this as sort of a way to learn how to live on a long-term basis on mars. >> how far off is this if they can do it? >> well nasa schedules tend to slip. they're talking about doing this by as early as the oepd testify decade, 2020 which isn't crazily far away. ielt is close enough to be realistic but close enough to see the schedule
8:10 am

8:15 am
what people don't realize is until about 1870 in the united states states, every town was on its own kind of unique time zone. so you'd be in new york city it wows be 8:15. in new haven it would be 8:22 and in boston it would be 8:13. this was a problem nobody noticed because you didn't have to coordinate your schedules or call anybody at the same time and then railroads came along and suddenly people were confused about what time it was. they would go from one place to the other and travel for 0 minutes and it would be 45 minutes later, except the railroad they were on was actually on baltimore time so they were catching a train that was on a completely different time. it was a mess. so we had to invent standardized time zones to solve this problem which hadn't been a problem before. and that made in the next century media, national media possible. you can only say tune in at 8:15 eastern standard time because we
8:16 am
have standard times. >> let's talk about one of the hopscotches you make. you basically say it was a journalist who changed the face urban poverty. how do you get there? >> the famous muckraker at the end of the 19th century, jacob reads who was very much involved in championing the life of the urban poor but he was having a hard time getting people excited about this cause. he wanted to take pictures of them and show what life was like in slums like five points here in new york and it was simply too dark to photograph these conditions. they didn't have flash photography at this point. but he gets word about this german invention. it's like setting off a small explosion basically and he goes off and storms into people's houses in these tiny little slum apartments and basically sets off small explosions in their room but he captures these photographs for the first time and he puts it into a book called "how the other half lives," goes on a magic lantern
8:17 am
trip around the country. it was made possible by flash photography. you also make a connection between refrigeration to ronald reagan. how does that start. >> air conditioning actually. it started in brooklyn. there's a printing shop where ink is running during the summer months. they hire a guy to come in and dehued my fie hu mied fiehumidify the shop almost by accident. some say i'm going to have my lunch in there it's really nice. >> 20 seconds left. >> 50 years later, everyone goes mainstream. everyone moves to the sun belt. that's essential to ronald reagan's electoral race. >> thanks a lot. up next the music of "gone girl." >> they already relieved me. >> finally.

that's music from "gone girl," the new suspense thriller about a husband blamed for the disappearance of his wife. the score was co-written by trent reznor, lead singer of nine inch nails. he and his cowriter add i was ross won an oscar for best original movie on the social network and grammy the next year for "the girl with the dragon tattoo." trent rez nor, good morning. >> good morning.
8:22 am
>> what brought you back for "gone girl?" >> it's been such a rewarding experience for me personally. it was very challenging. it with us flattering to be asked to work in a different medium than we're used to film that is. it was sump a fun rewarding, creative experience that, you know, when we fin irritabled "social network," i said if it's appropriate call me for the next one. that led to "dragon tattoo," and here we are, "gone girl." >> how does the process work? do you read the book, see scenes, or start with a blank slate? >> what i learned working in film, my job is to be in service to the picture, and if i'm writing for nine inch nails, my end result is turning it and making that connection. in film, we adopted this strategy of really trying to get inside his head. he has a very clear idea of what he's looking for and the role of
8:23 am
music and film. in this case read the book, read the script spent a lot of time with david asking him about what he was looking for. what was the role of music and how man lapive can we get with music and then atticus and myself would just sit in a room usually without picture thinking about the picture, the characters, and thinking about what we learned from david and just generate some backdrops. >> well, it's interesting too because this is set not only during some economic turmoil but within this couple. they're going through a lot of transitions as you follow them in the middle of the book. how did all that landscape play into what you wanted the music to be like? >> david and i talked a lot about the concept of appearances and facades and this -- if we could create sonically something that might appear to be perfect and pleasant on the outside but have it sort of rot inside. the more it depose on, you start
8:24 am
to realize all is not what it appears which comes up later in the film. >> you were telling us with "dragon tattoo" you wrote a half how of music before fincher had picked up a camera. >> that's just a result of i don't know what i'm doing. i think there's a benefit sometimes of not knowing the process, so, you know david asked me to work on social network, which is the first film i ever scored. i watched a lot of films, i loved his work, but i didn't know the actual process of it. do you wait till it's finisheded? i didn't know the mechanics behind the process. so we adopted a strategy that worked out pretty well that kind of worked from an almost impressionistic place, learn the material, thing about what might fit in that space, almost like set design and run it by david to see how he feels. and that yielded some pretty
8:25 am
great results and strategy that ends up being a lot more work for us as composers because we aren't just composing the 42 minutes of music that's in a film. we're kind of designing a world that pieces can be extracted into what can be the film. so with dragon tattoo. we had taken a whole year to set it aside and just think about that. and as we got to know the editors and the process that dave goes through, we thought maybe it would be interesting to give music before things are actually filmed as it might influence the performance of some of the directorial decisions. and there were pros and cons to that approach but it was an interesting experiment to try. we ended up righting three hours of music. >> so many people think of you and they think of nine inch nails. how different is it to do a score for a movie than it is making an album?
8:26 am
>> with nine inch nails i real loo is my strategy in making a pop song isn't to start with a hoom and make a product that's catchy. it's more a feeling or visual and then i try to address that visual with sound and a song comes out the other end. that's probably why my songs aren't that catchy. with filmwork it's replacing that vision i've come up with with looking aet the vision these guys have come up with it. a lot of it is deploying the same strategy. so it's not completely dissimilar. it's interestingly as challenging as well. >> in the theater could you feel people responding to the music? >> in my head i could. >> i was certainly turning away scared a lot and i know the music had a lot to do with that. trent res nor, thanks so much. coming up, you might find a nontraditional route cheaper and more fun. we'll tell you the secret. you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday."

if you're flying nonstop to london, you say go through istanbul. >> he's still trying to get over the hotel. the bottom line is turkish air with a big surprise. it flies to more destinations in the world than any other airline. so you're going to go to istanbul anyway, guess what? you stop there, they throw in a hotel and a layover, a tour of the city. why wouldn't you do that? >> istanbul is a stunning place. >> it is. it's amazing. and it's all right there. you don't have to travel very far to see the whole city. if you're making a long flight to mumbai india, you suggest stopping near qatar. >> you're going to have to stop in doha, so why not take advantage. they given you a hotel and a two-delayover. they've beefed up the culture. you've got museums, art, music, and an amazing museum of islamic art and they're adding museum after museum after museum.
