7:09 am
and looking at the figures, travel is up 60%. what should people know now as we're leaving this very packed holiday weekend? >> good morning, youjericka. so nice to see you. a year ago i sat in this same chair and i said we're going to have rising cases a few weeks from now and i was really worried about the crowd memorial day. we saw them at the beaches and all over. this year, totally different story. more than half the adults in the country vaccinated and many more with immunity from being exposed to the virus, i think we're going to be in a very good situation going forward. this memorial day will not pose a significant harm or rise in cases. so we got there. we got there by working together with the vaccines. but we're not done yet. we need to continue to get towards herd immunity and we're getting close. i'm so, so praying we will get there. >> a lot of parents are worried about camps coming up, kids will be coming out of school soon. the cdc says that children who
7:10 am
have been vaccinated no longer need to wear a mask. what advice do you have for parents? what should parents know right now? >> this is a big, big deal, right, is that now children should go to camp 12 and over to be vaccinated, hopefully most of them, and they don't need to wear masks. children who are unvaccinated don't need to wear masks outdoors and in play situations. in last groups they do. but this is going to be a very different summer. kids will be able to celebrate and be social compared to last year and i'm so excited for that. camps for very young kids will do testing beforehand and put them in pods to stay together and stay safe. i think the strategy the cdc set forward for camps make sense and we have a month to hopefully get more kids vaccinated and ready for camp. >> we've been talking about a series of variants that cropped up around the world, the latest in vietnam. we successfully fought off other
7:11 am
ones. do you worry about this one that came up in vietnam? >> this has two mutations, uk and indian variant together. it looks more infectious and divides more rapidly. i think all of the data points to the fact it will be susceptible to the vaccines, which is very, very positive. the real truth is we don't know that much about the variant until we have a month or two to follow what happened. there's no test to show us the behavior of the variants. but i twhier going hink we're g okay in the short run. the more the world gets vaccines, the fewer variants will be going forward. >> dr. david degas, thank you very much. president biden returns to mark memorial day at arlington national cemetery. yesterday the president paid tribute to fallen service men and women in their families at delaware's war memorial plaza. i can't thank you enough for your continued service for the country and your sons and daughters, they live on in your hearts and their children as
7:12 am
well. and we have to carry on without them but i know how hard it is for you. >> before the speech, mr. biden visited the grave of his son beau on the sixth anniversary of his death. police are trying to identify a suspect who shot more than 20 people outside a florida banquet hall yesterday morning. two people were killed and 20 others wounded as they left a concert there. we're outside jackson hospital, where some of the victims are being treated. manny, what else have we learned about this? >> good morning. a law enforcement source tells our miami station wfor, the gunman laid in wait outside of that facility about 40 minutes before opening fire and there's concern this morning the death toll could rise. 3 of the more than 20 people injured are listed in extremely critical condition. erupted out

7:14 am
definitely not random. >> reporter: sunday's incident happened barely a dayrts distri. on "face the nation," miami police chief art acevedo expressed frustration over america's persistent gun violence, urging lawmakers to take action. >> without legislation, without certainty as it relates to holding these criminals accountable, we're never going to get through the summer. >> reporter: police have reviewed the social media accounts of two rappers who performed that night to see if they were involved in any feuds or had any threats against them. for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the men involved in the attack, one philanthropist is offering a $100,000 reward, and with other rewards out there, the total is now $130,000. michelle? >> we hope it yields some results. thank you. benjamin netanyahu's future as israel's prime minister is hanging in the balance this
7:15 am
morning. former ally natally bennett announced his right-wing party is willing to form a national unity government this week with netanyahu's opponents. the action would end the cycle of deadlock that has plunged the country into four inconclusive elections over the past two years. it's also a major step toward ousting the israeli leader from his job for the first time in more than 12 years. netanyahu lashed out in a televised address calling the latest plan a danger for the security of israel. divers have found human remains in the search for seven people presumed dead after a small jet crashed into a tennessee lake. the victims include joe lara, an actor who played tarzan in the 1990s television series, and his wife, renowned religious diet guru gwen chamblin lara. every member was a member of the church that lara founded in

welcome back to "cbs this morning." almost 40% of traffic deaths over memorial day weekend involve alcohol. now a technology supported by big automakers promises to help create what developers call a world without drunk driving. erroll barnett is testing it out in a car with the high-tech tool in virginia. good morning. >> reporter: hey there, good morning. let me show you, these orange sensors around me are the driver's alcohol detection system for safety. this is for demo purposes, and there's a green line showing how much alcohol has been detected in my breath. it's at zero right now. the mission critical here is to stop drunk driving before it
7:31 am
begins and prevent families from experiencing unimaginable pain. >> never took another breath. >> reporter: patricia kimmel recalling the moment her son steven died. >> we watched all of his veins turn blue because of lack of oxygen in his body, and my hands were on his chest. just because i wanted to feel his heart until it stopped altogether. >> reporter: t-boned in 2018 by a drunk driving, steven kimmel's car flipped three times before ejecting him. it was the other driver's third drunk driving arrest. kimmel says it's unacceptable that this continues to happen. >> it's beyond belief because again it's 100% preventable. >> no alcohol detected -- >> reporter: a promising technology more than hay decade and $100 million in the making is aimed at preventing such accidents. >>. >> reporter: this is the next seat belt. >> reporter: fits if your hand. >> right now it fits in my hand because the available space in a modern car is about the size of
7:32 am
a baseball. >> the sensors here as we're talking, they are picking up our breath. >> reporter: robert strausberger leads a group of over a dozen car makers joining forces with mothers against drunk driving to back the driver alcohol detection system for safety or d.a.d.s. >> verify me -- >> warning, alcohol detected. >> reporter: here's how it works -- the sensor can detect the blood alcohol content your breath all in a matter of seconds. if it's above the legal limit, .08, the ignition won't turn. joe belvidere hoping to test the system just had two shots of alcohol. >> car not started. >> reporter: the keys electronically taken away. but when i took the driver's seat sober -- >> please provide breath sample to sensor. no alcohol detected. >> reporter: the screen turns green, and i'm on my way. since each of us processes alcohol differently, the makers are calibrating in technology to account for differing driver weights, weather conditions, mask wearing, and attempts to
7:33 am
trick the system. >> you're sitting much farther away from the sensor. if you leaned over, you would rule that reasonable doubting -- >> reporter: for transportation businesses, the manufacturer says this ensures the driver is 100% safe. >> we really look at technology to help safety. and i think that's a huge benefit for the traveling public. >> reporter: james river transportation in richmond has been on the road testing this technology for two years. >> this technology actually provides us that extra benefit of knowing our driver's going to be safe with no alcohol in their system. >> reporter: a peace of mind patri patricia sums up -- >> why not have technology to prevent anyone from driving drunk? >> reporter: a very good point. the big news is that this technology is being made available for open-source licensing this fall for commercial companies. so you could see it installed in fleets and trucks any time soon. they're constantly improving the
7:34 am
sensitivity of its system. the hope is this could be an added safety feature in your car in the near future. parents, for example, could add this to their vehicle to make sure their teens don't drive with any alcohol in their system. anthony? >> yeah. that would certainly provide a lot of comfort to a lot of people. i mean, i don't know how much further they need to develop this technology. but it's -- it literally will save lives. >> yeah. >> i know there's no test for that other drug called marijuana, but other drugs would be also key because, you know, in many states it's now legal. >> yeah. >> it's just sad that with so much educations that we've had about not drinking and driving that you have thousands every year that die from that. >> and get behind the wheel. >> yep. all right. you can always get the morning's news by subscribing to the "cbs this morning" podcast. hear today's top stories in less than 20 minutes. coming up, tennis champion naomi osaka is slammed with a massive fine for not speaking to

[ applause ] >> naomi osaka lets her racket do the talking. >> reporter: shortly after this first round win at the french open, number two-ranked naomi osaka skipped the post-match press conference. the world's highest earning woman athlete was soon slapped with a $15,000 fine and a warning. a statement from the heads of the four grand slam tournaments says if osaka continues to ignore her media obligations, she could be subject to other sanctions such as default from the tournament, more substantial fines, and future grand slam suspensions. osaka announced via twitter last week she would opt out of press during the french open saying she's not going to subject herself to people that doubt her. osaka's sister shed more light on the 23-year-old's reasoning
7:41 am
in a now-deleted reddit post verified by "the new york times." naomi's confidence was completely shattered after losing in the italian open on a clay court, she wrote, adding at every press conference naomi's told she has a bad record on clay. john murray is a clinical and sports psychologist. >> i understand that she might not want to be facing the scrutiny of the media. having said that, she has to understand that when she bought into this whole idea of playing professional tennis, part of that is to agree to do these interviews, to make the sport more vibrant. >> reporter: athletes competing in grand slam tournaments are required to make appearances as part of their contract. tournament officials said their decision was a matter of fairness. rules are in place to ensure all players are treated exactly the same. no matter their stature, beliefs, or achievement. fellow players like rafael nadal say they see press as part of

the job. osaka has not commented civil on the fine, but she is scheduled to play in the second round this week. and we should note that rafael nadal did say that he understands her on, the other hand he said, quote, i have my point of view that the media is a very important part of our sport. >> yeah. >> she has support, as well. zina gary garrison, serena williams, formula 1 racer nico rosburg. she is someone who suffers from anxiety. >> i understand both sides of this, and i love naomi osaka. i nthink she's been incredibly brave. sports say if everybody were to take this attitude wye wouldn't be able to publicize our sport. >> the key is everyone can't afford to take this stance. the key, too, in the piece, the highest earning female athlete. she can afford to i guess. >> we'll see -- >> the debate that goes back and

and it's time for "what to watch" with jamie yuccas joining us from los angeles. good morning, jamie. >> good morning, how y'all doing at the table? looking good this morning. >> great. hey. you're looking good. we're matching today. >> i like it. you and i do that -- >> we do. >> here are a few of the stories you're going to be talking about today -- not just our clothes -- china announced a major change in family policy saying married couples will be allowed to have three children. the communist party created a one-child-per-family policy in 19 0 to control population -- 1980 to control population growth.
7:48 am
it worked too well. the population is ageing rapidly and is going to get smaller. there was a policy change in 2015 to allow two children per family. many families have not chosen to do so, though, because childcare in cities can be so expensive. on chinese social media that's what everybody was talking about -- how would you have more children. most saying they could only afford one at this point. >> that will be interesting. that's a big leap to three kids in china. >> i know. population explosion. >> yeah. if they can't afford them, they're not -- they don't want to have them. >> right. >> it takes the young people to take care of the older people. >> exactly. if you're looking to invest in stocks this morning, they're saying in china things like strollers, that kind of thing, are through the roof this morning. we'll have to watch that, too. the nba, by the way, dealing with another crowd incident after last night's playoff game in boston between the celtics and the brooklyn nets. yeah, it's messy. take a look here. a fan threw a water bottle at
7:49 am
nets star kyree irving as he was leaving the court. not nice. >> why? >> it barely missed him. why, that's a good question. >> i don't understand this. >> no. the man was later spotted being escorted out of the arena in handcuffs. it's just the latest in a series of fans lashing out at nba players. there were two incidents, you guys remember, last week. a philadelphia 76ers fan poured popcorn on the washington wizards russell westbrook as he left the court. that man's season tickets were taken away. the new york knicks banned another man from madison square garden after he spit on trey young of the atlanta hawks. i don't get this either. you guys questioning it -- you know -- >> so ignorant. >> grow up. >> throwing a water bottle at somebody is basically assault. i mean, you know, that could seriously hurt someone. i mean, i hope they do more than just ban them from season tickets. i hope they indict some of them. this is really crossing the line. i don't know what these people think they're doing. >> it seems to be worse now post
7:50 am
pandemic or not post but certainly coming out of the last year. i don't understand it. i don't think any of us do. >> they're not true fans. >> no. >> get them out of there. let's talk about honoring the life of gavin mccleod. the actor who shot to fame playing murray slaughter on "the mary tyler moore show." >> it frosts me when you read it over the air like you did last night. [ laughter ] mississippi river rises. thousands flee homes. take off glasses, look concerned. [ laughter ] >> he was great, wasn't he? macleod was supposed to test for lou grant but asked if he could try out for murray instead. i think it worked out. he was also known for his decade-long run on "the love boat." he earned 108 onscreen credit in film and tv between 1957 and
7:51 am
2014. in 2013, he published a memoir, "this is your captain speaking." he revealed his birth name was alan sea and he changed that confusing name after taking advice from an acting coach. he died saturday at his home in california. he was 90 years old. on social media, you guys, ed asner said he'll see him soon, ed asner and betty white, the last two characters remaining from "the mary tyler moore show." asner 91 and white, 99. >> hard enough being in one successful tv series -- he was in two huge series, from 1970 to 1986. 16 years he was in two giants of tv. >> yeah. i want to get to this before we go -- students at a historically black university in ohio got the best graduation gift ever. listen -- >> you represent the best of your generation. we wish to give you a fresh start. so therefore, the university board of trustees has authorized me to forgive any debt --
7:52 am
[ cheers ] >> can you imagine that? those students are entering the work force without student loan debt. the president of wilbur force university broke the news at the end of saturday's graduation ceremony. it applies to the classes of both 2020 and 2021. wilbur force, one of the country's oldest black universities says it cleared more than $375,000 in debt. the school was able to pul i off -- >> best present ever. thanks. coming up, cillian murphy of "a quiet place part ii," very scary movie. stay with us. advanced non-small cell lulung cancer can change everything. but your first treatmentnt could d be a chemo-free combination of two immunotherapies that works differently. it could mean a chance to live longer.. opopdivo plus s yervoy is for adudults newly y diagnod with n non-small c cell lulung cancerr ththat has sprpread, teststs positiveve for pd-l1 and does n not have anan abnormrmal egfr oror alk gen. opdidivo plus s yervoy is the onlnly fda-a-approved c combination of twowo immunotheherapies

8:16 am
this bell was present at pearl harbor. >> how can you not be motivated or inspired to do what you can to take care of it? >> reporter: the emotional heart of the collection might be this small captain's boat from the shipwrecked "uss saginaw." immortalized with the names of the few desperate volunteers who ran a rescue mission. >> there are no words, especially when i look at an object like this. it's my duty to make certain that their stories are told forever. so it really is an honor to be able to work with the collection that does that. >> reporter: the navy plans to break ground on the new museum in about two years. so in the meantime, if you need a fix of navy history, come on down to this museum, reserve your tickets on line. michelle, it's anchors away. >> anchors away -- i'm going to google a lot of history. there was so much that you hit on, and i want to learn so much more. chip, thank you so much. coming up, cocktails in a can. how the growing popularity of

the manager of a public library in university heights, ohio, got a surprise in the mail when someone returned an overdue item. it was 48 years overdue. sarah phillips, the manager, opened the package. in it she found bob dylan's 1973 album "self-portrait." it was returned by howard simon who checked it out as an eighth grader in 19737 when he was at wiley middle school in cleveland heights, ohio. he wrote in the letter that he sent with it as a recent retiree i am taking the opportunity to turn my attention to some of the many vignettes of life that by career and family have been neglected these many years. in that context, i am returning an overdue item by my count approximately 17,480 days overdue as of this writing. he included a check for $175 and apologizing for what he called the -- this transgression of my youth.
8:33 am
he also included -- he's a musician and included his own album called "western reserve." there he is. which came out a couple of years ago. the library says they don't charge for overdue items anymore. right. isn't that nice to hear? they consider this matter settled. >> okay. >> unbelievable. >> surprised it was only $175. >> he calculated he would have oprah win owed over $1,000, but he couldn't afford that. the replacement area is lower. he came up with a generous contribution to the library. >> fair enough. i don't know how he found the book -- >> the mean the record? >> record -- >> he's a musician, he's been traveling with it his whole life. keeps his collection. it's very important to some, vinyl record collections. >> is it important to you? >> it might be. the queen of hip-hop soul, mary j. blige, yeah, she has joined an elite club. she was inducted into the apollo theater's walk of fame in new york city. the nine-time grammy winner
8:34 am
thanked her fans at the ceremony. she says she first performed there at the apollo as a background singer for jeff redd, and the rest as we know is history. other big names on the walk of fame include louie armstrong, aretha franklin, stevie wonder, and lewis armstrong, and i got the opportunity to dedicate that plaque back in -- >> look at that. >> in 2014. >> wow. >> you know, janelle prokope, ceo of the apollo. i spoke to blige about her career back in 2018 for "sunday morning." when she was up for an oscar in 2017 for "mud bound." just -- she's so incredibly talented, is now into acting, and i have to say still one of the most humble people i have ever met. i just adored her. >> yeah. she looked -- >> you don't realize how hits she has until you see her in
8:35 am
concert. nonstop. >> and she looks fabulous. so great. >> those guns. all about the guns with mary j. all right. the highly anticipated sequel "a quiet place part ii" opened in theaters last week raking in about $50 million between friday and sunday. it's the biggest box office debut since the start of the pandemic. the thriller about mysterious creatures that hunt by sound is expected to earn close to $60 million by the end of the holiday weekend. actor cillian murphy joined the cast of the sequel as emmett, an old friend of the abbott family from the first "quiet place" movie. take a look. >> did you ever think to come for us? >> no. the people that are left, what
8:36 am
they've become, you don't know, do you? i do. they're not the kind of people worth saving. >> a scary good film. cillian murphy joins us now from dublin, ireland. good morning. thanks so much for being with us. i loved the first film. i loved this one just as much. i know you were a big fan of the first film and actually wrote an email to john krasinski that you didn't end up sending. but what did you say? >> well, i just said exactly that. that i loved the movie so much. it was my favorite movie of 2018, i think it was, the first one came out. >> yeah. >> and i just said, congratulations, you know, i was a fan of his work beforehand. and i just -- i wrote congratulations -- i got too nervous, and i never -- never sent it. >> how did you end up getting this part? >> well, at the same time, it
8:37 am
seems that himself and emily were watching "peaky blinders" at the same time and he was writing the script and thought of me for that role. he reached out to me about a year later. >> is it -- one of the things that -- i know it's acting and you have to act under any circumstance, but in a lot of cases here you're dealing with essentially cgi monsters who are terrifying on the screen, but you don't actually see them in person. how challenging is that? >> well, i guess that's our job really as actors to use our imagination. that's what we do. and it was quite liberating in that there was no green screen ever. it was all -- you know, relocations and -- just john saying they're behind you, they're coming, look this way, was pretty basic really. >> i have to say one of the most poignant moments in the movie was seeing you on that boat dock. and it was a reference to milicent's character. and i don't want to give it
8:38 am
away, but the fact that you had opened up and tried to get to know this character a little bit better earlier on, i'm curious for milicent, that experience working with her, she is deaf -- >> yeah -- >> was it challenging, and how did it challenge you to move beyond? >> i got to say it was an education working with her. she's phenomenal. you know, incredible performer, incredible presence which i think is something that you can't learn as an actor, you just have it. and she has that. and we got on brilliantly throughout the shoot. i -- what i always see in young performers is this sort of instinct. you know, which as an older actor you tend to -- you're always reaching for a pure instinct. and younger pe er performers ha. she is phenomenal. it's kind of her movie i think. >> it is her movie. i have to ask -- is there going to be a sequel?
8:39 am
>> i believe -- i believe so. i'm not the guy to ask. >> jericka duncan here. thank you again for joining us. what a transformation you've made to see you like this and see you in the movie. it's completely different. but one of the things that you brought up is that your performance in "peaky blinders" is what sort of led you or connected you to "a quiet place part ii." we knw you're taping the sixth season. what can we expect? what can you tell us? >> we just actually wrapped on friday. so it's done, done now. again, you know, i'm sure you guys are the same as me, i'm not into spoilers. and i'm -- i'm loathe to give anything away. but it will -- it will conclude the tv series. i think it will be very, very big things we're exploring. and i think -- the word i've been using is gothic.
8:40 am
i think it's quite gothic, the last season. >> you spent almost a decade working on "peaky blinders." what was it like wrapping after all that? >> it was emotional for sure. for a variety of reasons. you know, it's been a big chunk of my life, and you know, i never expected to go on the journey with the character like this. and yeah, it was very big part of me, and the crew and the cast, we've become very, very close. so i don't think i've quite absorbed it all yet. >> i imagine it takes time to set in. obviously it hasn't come out yet, so you've got to promote it. so it's still part of your life. >> yeah. >> i mean, having just watched the "friends" anniversary and some of the film from when they all said good-bye, it gets very emotional. you become a family, as you say. >> yeah. for sure. >> there was a "peaky blinders" moment that kind of peeled over
8:41 am
into "a quiet place part ii." you want to tell us about that? it involves a bar and a bachelorette party. >> and emily blunt. >> yeah. emily saved me there. there tends to be -- it's become there kind of phenomenon where people have "peaky blinders" weddings and stag parties and you guys call them bachelorette parties, we call them hen parties. that stuff goes on. i should definitely not be involved in any of those. whisked me away. >> you would have been the star of the show. cillian murphy, thank you so much for joining us.

we're continuing our coverage this morning of the 100th anniversary of the tulsa massacre. hundreds of black people were killed or injured by a white mob during a two-day rampage which began on this day in 1921. more than 30 blocks of black-owned homes and businesses were destroyed. the violence was covered up for decades. now the greenwood art project is supporting a technology nonprofit to remember the businesses lost with a modern-day twist. omar villafranca joins us again from tulsa. what an honor for you to be there. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. it absolutely is. and there was an estimated 200
8:46 am
businesses that were part of black wall street who were destroyed during that massacre. today there's some tulsa students who are developing a modern way to honor that legacy but also learn some important tech skills. 100 years after it was burned to the ground, the legacy of black wall street will continue. this time digitally thanks to tech industry veteran and tulsa native mikel vaughn and his students the urban coders guild which keeps s.t.e.m. skills to kids in underserved communities. >> thises one of the crazy ideas that come to you at 2:00 a.m. there was a community of businesses that existed. the idea is if those businesses existed in 2021, they would most likely have a website, they would most likely have a mobile app and we're teaching kids to make websites and teaching kids to make mobile apps. so is made sense to do this. >> reporter: this is historic black --, for businesses including the
8:47 am
dreamland theater, the hotel alexander, and the red wing cafe. noted at the time for its swell electric piano. you're not only giving a computer science lesson, you're giving them a history lesson. >> absolutely. my kids are learning the web technolo technologies, the mobile technologies. but we partner with the tulsa community college. they're doing the research. there was another group of people from tulsa community college that were doing graphic sign and logos. so this is a collaborative effort. very much in the spirit of greenwood, very much in the spirit of black wall street. >> reporter: what do you want people who see this to get out of it? >> i want them to understand the importance of our history. >> reporter: brother and sister isaac and raven are two of 40 students in the urban coders guild. isaac researched vernon ame church, the only building that survived the massacre. what is it like creating something digitally but also physically seeing a piece of it? >> i think it's interesting that we're able to make it more
8:48 am
permanent in a way because physically it could be destroyed and all that, but when you make it digital, it basically lasts forever which i think is worth it. >> reporter: you can't burn that down. >> no, you can't. >> reporter: brenda nails alpert, a descendant of several survivors of the massacre, said she appreciates the work of students like the arterberys. it speaks volumes to the legacies that made black wall street. you all will carry on that legacy. >> reporter: for your young coders, do you think this is connecting them to a past that a lot of people didn't talk about it? >> it's connecting them to a past for sure, but we also want to focus on connecting them to a future that maybe they didn't imagine. a future working in tech. maybe being a coder. >> reporter: is this the next chapter of black wall street? >> i hope so. i would want it to be. >> reporter: so far there are only a handful of businesses in the directory, but they plan on adding more in the coming months. and this is not only just a tech
8:49 am
lesson for these kids, this is also a history lesson because a lot of them are just learning about what happened here 100 years ago. >> yeah. it was a history that was just wiped out. i mean -- in many cases just not talked about or ignored. >> this is such a great project because it actually -- those kids are making this current by doing what they're doing. they are -- they're learning history but also making it current. and as that one said, you know, you can't burn this down. it's -- and also it brings it back into the conversation. if those kids carry it forward, this story will not fade away again. >> and that's the key. >> no, it won't. >> thank you. >> tonight gayle king anchors a special "tulsa 1921: an american tragedy" at 10:00 eastern, 9:00 central here on cbs. we'll be right back. explore e floor and d decor your wayay, and comforortably shopop ovea millioion square f feet
