7:03 am
welcome to "cbs this morning." areas already swamped by rising flood waters in texas are facing more flooding. rescuers saved dozens of people after drenching rain. seven people died and several others are missing. >> more rain is forecast to fall today. overflowing it rivers will rise even more. manuel bojorquez is in houston with the dangerous outlook. manuel, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the homeowner here tells us yesterday afternoon you could see the front lawn. well, now it's nothing but water. several inches, in fact. the line on this stake in the ground shows where the water will rise, if it gets to the projected level. the brazos river is seven feet above flood stage and climbing. the deluge of rain that's pummelled southeastern texas has sent rivers surging to levels not seen in decades. the rising brazos river has forced the evacuation of hundreds from simonton to
7:04 am
richmond and is expected to hit a record 8 1/2 feet above flood stage. an area that's no stranger to flooding has still found itself overwhelmed. >> yeah, you're prepared, but you're not prepared for eight or nine feet of water. >> reporter: dozens of people in ft. bend county needed to be rescued after ignoring earlier warnings to evacuate. alice gracias was shocked after she returned to see the damage to her home. >> i get the sense you didn't expect it would be even worse than before. >> not even. not even. >> reporter: with no flood insurance, now she will have to rebuild the property, left to her by her father. >> it's really sad. 33 years, never, ever seen it like this. >> reporter: now with more rain on the way, water logged areas could see another round of flooding. >> that is a very disturbing prospect because the rivers are full, the ditches are full. if we get more rain on top of
7:05 am
it, that water's not going to have any place to go. >> reporter: the brazos river is expected to remain at major flood stage for the next several days. the good news is today is expected to be dry. but this area is expected to see up to two inches of rain between tomorrow and friday. gayle? >> oh, boy. thank you very much, manuel. several tornadoes swept through the great plains yesterday. an airport in northeastern colorado saw winds of 55 miles an hour. one tornado was reportedly on the ground for about 15 minutes. in nebraska, another twister touched down in the town of sidney. the tornadoes caused minimal damage. donald trump promises to clear up all questions this morning about his fundraising for veterans. he's scheduled to speak with reporters at his new york headquarters. trump has faced repeated calls to explain what happened to the money he says he collected. major garrett is here in studio 57 covering the trump campaign. major, good morning. >> good morning.
7:06 am
trump boasted about raising millions for veterans before the iowa caucuses. remember those? but for months, the specifics remained elusive, and the fundraising began to look more like marketing than actual generosity. well, today trump promises details to back up his of the repeated claim that no one in this campaign has done more for veterans than him. >> we just raised over $6 million for the vets. >> reporter: donald trump came to washington to washington to explain. >> we just cracked $6 million, right? >> reporter: trump staged a hastily organized fundraiser for veterans, his own counterprogramming to a fox iowa caucus debate that he boycotted. >> this is a special night for me. >> reporter: but the amount raised has been clouded for months in confusion and contradictory trump statements. >> the veterans money you raised, what's the status? >> we've given away much of it.
7:07 am
>> how much? >> i don't know. i can tell you -- you know, a lot of it is going from the people who made it directly to the veterans groups. i'd say millions have been given out already. >> reporter: cbs news has only been able to confirm where are there 2 million of the $6 million has gone. even the $6 million figure has been hard to pin down. trump's campaign manager corey lewandowski provided little clarity on "cbs this morning" last week. >> what's the current amount that has been donated to veterans? >> it's not less than that. what we said is by memorial day, all the money will be distributed. >> reporter: trump's attachment to veterans issues has at times been rocky. >> i was not a fan of the vietnam war, but i was entered into the draft. >> reporter: during vietnam, he received four student deferments and one medical dermt. and he had this comment last summer about arizona senator john mccain, who spent 5 1/2 years in captivity. >> he's a war hero because he
7:08 am
was captured. i like people that weren't captured, okay? >> trump's pronouncements today will not be the last word. new york veterans with strong democratic leanings will stage a protest after the conference to criticize trump's use of veterans as props and his overall agenda. >> there's this question in politics. bill crystal suggested in a tweet that perhaps there's a third-party candidate about ready to rise. >> said there's a real chance. there's definitely a chance. real subject to interpretation. there's no candidate. there's no money. filing deadlines are rapidly going away, which makes this a difficult proposition. just as a moment to compare things. in 1992 when ross perot, the most successful independent candidate do run, in mid-may, he qualified for 20 ballots. we have no candidate on any b l ballot right now. texas is already gone. the end of june, four more states with 51 electoral votes
7:09 am
will have their deadlines lapse with the requirement of 157,000 signatures. even if there is a candidate and money, the practical realities make this almost impossible. >> do you think bill kristol has a candidate in mind and he's not telling us? >> i can't conjure what bill kristol is thinking at this moment. >> there's talk about romney. >> thank you so much. hillary clinton is suddenly shaking up her schedule to keep up with bernie sanders in california. they're chasing 475 democratic delegates in the state's primary one week from today. sanders campaigned on memorial day in oakland, where protesters caused a scare when they tried to rush the stage. nancy cordes is following the story. >> good morning. hillary clinton was not planning on going back to california this week, but as the race tightens, she's shifted her schedule to arrive for an event on thursday. for sanders and his campaign, it's a sign that this game is still very much on.
7:10 am
>> reporter: with a soft spot for a comeback, senator bernie sanders took in game seven of the western conference finals. he and actor danny glover watched the golden state warriors beat long odds to clinch a spot in the championships. the symbolism wasn't lost on sanders. >> they turned it around. that is what our campaign is going to do as well. a very good omen for our campaign. >> reporter: a rally earlier in the day outside oakland city hall began with laughter. >> the first thing i need to know is do i have the right hat? >> reporter: but minutes later -- >> step away. >> reporter: secret service agents scrambled when several animal rights protesters jumped over the barricades. at least five people were walked out and carried out in handcuffs. >> we don't get intimidated easily. >> reporter: hillary clinton spent memorial day with former president bill clinton walking in a parade in their hometown of
7:11 am
chappaqua, new york. sanders insists the race isn't truly over until the convention. >> nobody will have enough pledged delegates to win the democratic nomination. either secretary clinton or myself will be dependent on super delegates. >> reporter: sanders points out many of clinton's super delegates came on board in the first month of her campaign back in early 2015 and could still change their minds. on the other hand, charlie, if they haven't changed their minds in all this time, they're unlikely to do so in the next couple of months. >> nancy, thanks. iraqi forces trying to retake fallujah from isis are running into stiff resistance. they faced a counterattack south of the city and some of the worst fighting in the
7:12 am
government's week-old offensive. fallujah has been under isis control for more than two years. charlie d'agata is following the battle from london. >> good morning. iraqi special forces say just before dawn, isis militants used tunnels to get snipers within range and sent six suicide car bombs toward the troops. they were all destroyed before they hit their target, but it's just a hint of the fight to come. >> reporter: their accuracy may be lacking, but the aim for iraqi forces and shiite militias is clear. tighten the noose on isis militants in fallujah. commanders say ground troops are closing in on three sides, led by elite iraqi counterterrorism forces, backed up by u.s.-led air strikes. but u.s. military officials in baghdad tell cbs news iraqi forces have yet to advance to the city itself, and that won't be easy. although a few hundred residents have managed to escape, tens of thousands more are thought to be
7:13 am
trapped in the city, held hostage by isis militants intent on using them as human shields. iraqi officials estimate more than a thousand isis fighters remain in the city that was the first to fall to isis more than two years ago. it took eight months to recapture nearby ramadi, and this is what it looked like when it was over. iraqi forces have discovered networks of tunnels left behind by isis militants and entire neighborhoods booby trapped. soldiers told us they were worried the closer they got to the city, the more vulnerable they would be to suicide car bombs trying to pierce their fragile front lines. even as forces push into fallujah, isis has struck back elsewhere, unleashing a wave of suicide bombings in the capital that have left more than a hundred people dead. and counting. this morning the u.n. announced that 3700 people have fled since
7:14 am
the offensive began, but they're risking their lives to even try. isis had controlled all the roads leading out of the city, and they've been known to execute anybody attempting to leave. gayle? >> thank you, charlie. video shows an emotional rescue overnight after a wave of deadly air strikes in syria. crews pulled a young boy alive from the rubble. he's handed from one rus kescue the next. new details in the deadly shooting of a gorilla at the cincinnati zoo and botanical garden. the gorilla was killed after a 4-year-old boy ended up in its enclosure. the boy is okay. the zoo's director argues these pictures do not show all the danger. jamie yuccas is here with how the zoo is answering critics. >> good morning, norah. zoo officials told reporters that the two other female g gorillas in harambe's exhibit have been looking for him. they call his death a big loss
7:15 am
but insists the young boy's safety was paramount and the animal was so strong, he could crush a coco out in with one hand. if faced with the same decision, zoo officials said they'd make it again. cincinnati zoo officials say harambe was agitated and disoriented after he encountered a child. >> we did not take the shooting lightly, but that child's life was in danger. >> reporter: on monday, zoo director thane maynard doubled down on the decision to shoot the gorilla after a 4-year-old boy climbed over a public barrier into the gorilla's habitat. >> people who question that don't understand that you can't take a risk with a silverback gorilla. they're very big. three times bigger than a man, six times stronger. >> reporter: the woman who took this video said she heard the boy and his mother arguing shortly before the incident. >> i'm going to go in. >> no, you're not. >> harambe's death is under heavy scrutiny. more than 300,000 people have
7:16 am
signed a petition calling for the boy's parents to be held accountable. >> the zoo isn't a babysitter. >> reporter: wild life biologist jeff corwin isn't playing blame but said the public needs to be more attentive. >> a lot of times we get lost on our cell phone or texting and we're not keeping an eye on what's going on with our own children. also, these are wild animals. >> reporter: the boy made his way past a three-foot fence and through an additional four feet of plants and shrubs before dropping 15 feet into the moat below. although the cincinnati zoo is standing by its decision, they, too, are mourning the gorilla, along with jerry stones, who tyke care of harambe for the first 15 years of his life. >> he was not mean. he was a gentle little guy. an unforeseen circumstance was born, and he had to lose. >> despite the outcry over the responsibility of the boy's parents, cbs has not confirmed whether his father was present
7:17 am
at the zoo. zoo officials say they have drilled to prepare them for these types of situations and had practiced a week before the incident. charlie? >> thank you, jamie. florida police this morning are investigating a disturbing case of road rage captured on video. it shows a driver running over a motorcycle after a heated exchange. the two people on the bike are okay. police arrested the driver accused of hitting them. demarco morgan shows us what led to this violent confrontation. >> good morning. the dramatic cell phone video was taken by another driver who says he saw the man in the gray pontiac run the motorcyclists off the road. that's when he began filming. that's what a half ton of automobile crunching up over a motorcycle in the middle of a florida freeway. >> we were on our way to dinner, and there was a driver on the road that was driving very erratically. >> he says he was out enjoying a
7:18 am
memorial day ride with friends. >> we just ended up pulling up next to him and started letting him know that we were not pleased with his driving skills. that's when he decided to put the car in reverse, backed up about two feet, turned the wheel, and just ran us over. >> he escaped with only a broken leg. his friend melody was hospitalized overnight with cuts, scrapes, and an injured ankle. >> just one of those i can't believe this just happened. >> cops arrested the driver of the car and charged him with leaving the scene of an accident and aggravated battery. these days, road rage isn't so rare. since 2010, deaths linked to road rage have increased by more than 30%, causing more than 1700 fatalities between 2010 and 2014. police say the driver of the gray sedan has been previously cited for multiple traffic violations in the past. they say he did admit to hitting
7:19 am
the victim and the vehicle and leaving the scene. he's expected to make his first appearance in court today. gayle? >> thank you very much, demarco. we told you earlier about golden state's big victory in the nba western conference finals last night. league mvp steph curry and his warriors last night completed their dramatic comeback, and it was dramatic. they defeated oklahoma city 96-88. golden state overcame a 3-1 deficit with a chance to repeat as champions. the finals will be a rematch with king james, also known as lebron james, and the cleveland cavaliers. the first game is thursday in oakland. that was worth staying up for. >> oh, my god. was it not? i've never seen somebody come back so well. >> that never happens. >> lebron will be ready too. it will be a great series. >> all right. we'll take you to a california beach closed after a suspected great white shark

7:32 am
2014 s maybe not, but it was reckless. 2015, still, technically, it was unlawful. 2016, it was a public service. snowden suggests what will happen in 2017 is unknown. he is in russia to avoid prosecution. "the wall street journal" reports on north korea's attempt to launch another missile today. south korea says it likely failed. the missile was reportedly fired from north korea's east coast. it was said to be a powerful mid range missile that could reach american bases in asia and the pacific. this was the fourth attempt at a successful launch since april. and "the houston krolg" says the gunman who opened fire in an auto shop an army veteran who served in afghanistan. a customer was killed and several people were wounded in the shooting on sunday. responding officers killed the gunman. friends of the shooter say that he suffered from post-traumatic stress syndrome. gawker media ceo nick denton is here for his first network interview since challenging silicon valley billionaire peter
7:33 am
thiel. >> this dispute began in 2007 when a gawker website outed the paypal cofounder as a gay man. thiel told "the new york times" gawker is a terrible bully. he called the lawsuit one of the quote, greater philanthropic things i've ever done. denton has hired an investment banker to avoid possible sale of his company. he founded gawker media in 2002. it is reportedly worth at least $250 million. nick denton is in studio 57 with us for his first interview. >> i think it maybe was worth $250 million before this lawsuit. >> maybe very well be true. just to clear it up, is it for sale? >> we have to look at everything. when you have an angry billionaire against you, i think it's quite right to look at
7:34 am
every single contingency. >> okay. hulk hogan won the lawsuit against you or peter thiel helped him? >> this is a complicated story. it began as a story about a sex tape that hulk hogan had himself been talking about. it turned out his motives for pursuing the lawsuit weren't to do with that but were to do with racist remarks on another tape. now it seems that there's a story behind even that story. a billionaire on a ten-year mission to actually bankrupt a media company. >> i've read that open letter you wrote to peter thiel where you said there have been occasions where we overstep the line. where have you overstepped it? >> this is a story i don't particularly want to talk about that much because it was bad enough at the time for the person involved, but there was a story last year about an executive's personal life that i regret we published.
7:35 am
i said to, and we took it down. >> you published a story this person had contacted a male escort. >> the story was along those lines. >> so i think this is important because, also, the question about the hulk hogan sex tape. what is the news value in publishing a sex tape? >> well, first of all, we didn't publish a sex tape. we published snippets of a sex tape to accompany a story about this famous, famous wrestler, who had talked a lot about his sex life, had made it a matter of public interest, and the relationship he has with his best friend and his best friend's wife. we thought it was a valid story. we still think it is. a federal judge deemed it newsworthy. we believe the appeals court will find the same. >> you have no regrets about publishing the snippets of it? just because he talks about it i'm thinking doesn't mean he wants everybody to see it. >> no, absolutely. but when somebody actually does make somebody a topic of public
7:36 am
discussion, they can't be that surprised when others jump in, and the narrative goes in a direction they don't necessarily want. >> did you know peter thiel was involved in this case? when you found out, what did you think? >> we had some suspicions, but it seemed crazy. the idea that there would be somebody behind this, that there would be some long-standing plan that somebody would be spending $10 million, maybe more, funding a hole looking for cases, funding a whole series of cases against a media company because they didn't like critical coverage. i think we should -- >> you said some innocent people were rationale. >> he said friends of his had been hurt by our publicpublicat. he has many friends among the silicon valley elite. but look at the stories about him. criticism of the performance of his hedge fund.
7:37 am
criticism and mockery of his views on whether american democracy suffered after -- >> that shows he doesn't mind being criticized, but at some point he thinks it goes over the line. you've said gawker goes over the line. help us understand where you come down on that. >> the other irony here is he is, as we are, a beneficiary of free speech and free press in this country. he has very controversial views on whether women should have the vote on immortality, on sea steading, and we've written stories which are critical. we take our position seriously as the independent alternative press, and we've written stories that have absolutely upset both celebrities like hulk hogan and silicon valley elite. >> he describes gawker as a
7:38 am
bully. how do you describe what you do? what is the audience you're trying to reach? >> i think it's a little rich for somebody worth $2.7 billion who spent a fortune of their fortune. >> let me get specific. peter thiel has argued some of the stories were painful and paralyzing for people who were targeted and that most of these people cannot afford to fight back. we have a couple of the headlines that you've had on gawker in the past. a lot of these stories focus on people's sexuality. specifically whether they're gare or not. does he have a point? >> we've published about a million posts over the company's existence. most are reviews of video games, new cars that have come out, stories like gizmodo's story about the facebook news headline. >> did gawker out peter thiel in 2007? >> i don't believe we did. he told the new yorker in 2003
7:39 am
he was already open with friends. if you actually read the piece, the piece written by a gay writer, i'm gay myself, was a piece celebrating the fact that the most talented venture capitalist in silicon valley was gay in a largely straight male world. i think that's as worthy of note as whether carly fiorina was the first powerful female executive in silicon valley. it's not something to be ashamed of. i think it's weird for people to behave like it is. >> two quick points. if, in fact, you knew peter thiel would come after gawker, if you knew that, would you have not
7:40 am
there are other examples of why people spend their money to help people in lawsuits. >> and in this case, peter thiel is -- well, peter thiel's lawyer is working on behalf of two people we know of. peter thiel hasn't confirmed which lawsuit he's behind. one is someone who claims he invented e-mail about ten years after e-mail was invented. the other person is a journalist who was collecting a dirt file on two co-founders of tinder who are in a fight with each other. anybody who actually looks at those stories would say, what's this about? >> if the verdict stands, can you stay in business, and will you change the way you operate? >> we don't believe the verdict will stand. in terms of hulk hogan verdict, we don't believe it will stand. >> in terms of the money though. >> yes. >> not in terms of the decision. >> i think in terms of the
7:41 am
decision too. a federal judge already determined that the story was newsworthy. the appeals court has on several occasions ruled in our favor. >> will you change the way you operate, nick, because of this? >> i think society has already changed and the media has already changed. there's less demand now amongst our readers, amongst our 4 million each weekday reader. there's less demand for the kind of highly critical journalism that there was maybe five or ten years ago. >> nick denton, thank you for being here. >> thank you. swimmers are getting high-tech help to lower the risk of shark attacks. ahead, how new tools and drones are letting beach goers know when danger lurks in the water. you're watching "cbs this morning." omen worldwide i trust tena. and with new tena overnight underwear i can now sleep worry free all night. the unique secure barrier system gives me triple protection from leaks, odor and moisture

shark attacks on both coasts are raising new concerns about beach safety this summer. new technologies like drones could make swimming less risky, despite reports of a growing shark population. carter evans is in newport beach, california, where some areas are still closed after a shark attack on sunday. carter, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. that woman is still recovering in a hospital not far from here,
7:46 am
but part of the problem is it's hard to tell if a shark is in the water unless you actually see a fin. well, now researchers are working with new surveillance technology that would essentially give you an early warning if you're swimming with sharks. this may look like an ordinary jet ski trip, but it's really an example of high tech on the high seas. shark researcher chris low and his team are diving into the ocean off southern california. tagging sharks with transmitters near popular beaches, they're tracking shark movements to find out why the population of young great white sharks is growing so close to crowded shores. >> they come in because there's lots of abundant food like sting rays, and the water is warmer. >> reporter: a female swimmer was hospitalized sunday after receiving multiple bite wounds to her upper body from a suspected great white. last year there were 98 unprovoked shark attacks worldwide, the highest on record, resulting in six n
7:47 am
fatalities. low says he's not surprised to see a shark attack so early in the season. >> i think the rate of shark attack is going to continue to go up. there are more and more people using the ocean than ever before. the other thing, in some places like the u.s., we're seeing recovery of our shark populations. so you put those two things together, you will see more shark attacks. >> reporter: shark trackers are also using drones to give them an eye in the sky. scientists are also using underwater cameras to count the number and the types of sharks swimming by. this is a wave glider, a versatile research tool that uses solar and wave power to propel itself. stanford researchers are using it along with floating buoys. >> new technology is actually changing the game. it's giving us insight into how these big sharks make decisions. >> reporter: and hopefully by learning more about how sharks make decisions, beach goers can make better decisions about

more flooding threatens areas in texas already swamped with water. rescuers saved around 40 people from flood waters sparked by days of rain. flooding in the state has killed at least seven people and several others are missing. rivers in southeastern texas surged to levels not seen in decades. >> the brazos river is expected to hit a record 8 1/2 feet above flood stage. the rising waters forced hundreds to evacuate. flood warnings are in place with more rain expected today and through the week. oh, no. some locations across northern and central texas could see between 3 and 5 inches. a new poll out this morning shows donald trump and hillary clinton in a virtual tie. clinton leads their potential november matchup by two points just over the margin of error. the same poll shows bernie sanders leading trump by 12 points. gayle? one week before california's primary, sanders is causing clinton to suddenly change course. clinton will return to california on thursday, four days earlier than planned.
8:03 am
she wants to avoid losing the state, even though she will likely clinch the nomination either way. sanders finished a day of campaigning in oakland by going to game seven of the nba western conference finals. the golden state warriors, have you heard, they won. they're now heading to the finals after being down three games to one. that hasn't happened since 1981. that was so fun. >> i saw him shoot it in a way i've never seen before. everything. >> great tv. sanders tweeted this after the game. they finished off a great comeback in california, and i like comebacks. >> donald trump will hold a news conference in a few hours. he says it will clear up questions over the money he raised for veterans earlier this year. trump boasted about raising $6 million in january, but ever since, the specifics have been hard to pin down. cbs news has confirmed that veterans groups received just over $2 million. we do not know exactly how much money trump raised and where it
8:04 am
all went. you can see donald trump's news conference on our streaming news network, cbsn, starting around 11:00 a.m. eastern, 10:00 central. you can watch at, on the cbs news app, and devices like roku and apple tv. cbs news contributor frank luntz is here. he's listened to more than 30 focus groups to talk about what he calls the election from hell. frank, good morning. wow. we're going to talk about that in a second. let's hit donald trump for a second. this news conference he's having later today, do you think this will have a negative impact on his campaign? >> nothing has a negative impact. no matter what you say, no matter what he says, no matter any of the analysis. i've never seen anything like it in the 25 years i've been doing this. >> doesn't he have some hard questions to answer today? >> obviously. but the issue here is particularly with veterans, who are the most supported group of any segment in the american population. even more than teachers. a normal candidate would be under intense fire, but for
8:05 am
donald trump, this is just a single day story. >> and the reason you suggest is because they like him because he has an attitude rather than a specific -- >> it's about his character traits. it's about his attributes, not about the issues. we've identified a segment. it's called none of the above. it's going to be out in the "l.a. times" tomorrow. it talks and focuses on those people who do not like hillary clinton, who do not like donald trump, reject both individuals equally, and very harshly, but they're definitely going to vote. we've never had a segment that is this high in the population. by the way, they're not anti-political. they've got a 20-point favorability ratio for bernie sanders. it's just hillary clinton and donald trump, they dislike intensely. the number one attribute they're looking for is trust and integrity. >> you think they'll determine the outcome of this? >> absolutely. it's not soccer moms. it's not nascar dads. it's this 11%. they believe that neither candidate has the honestly and
8:06 am
integrity they're looking for. therefore, it's the candidate they distrust the least will end up with their vote. >> at election time. >> is it too late for an independent candidate to get in? >> it's not too late. mike bloomberg could jump back in again. i believe he'd start with over 20% of the vote. if bernie sanders decided he was mistreated by the democratic party, he would start with over 20% of the vote. this is not just an angry and frustrated election. i want to give you a specific word. betrayal. these are people who feel that wall street betrayed them economically, that washington betrayed them politically, and they have no place to turn. they're in their 50s and 60s. they look towards the future with tremendous pessimism. they don't believe that america is going to be the greatest country down the road. and they feel like they're suffering. >> major garrett said in the previous hour that, in fact, it would be to late to file in texas and other places, so therefore, it's a fool's errand. >> except that texas is going to go republican no matter who files there, no matter who is running there. the key states, the states that are decided by less than 5% of
8:07 am
the vote, those filing deadlines are not until august or september. i want to make one more point. this negativity, this pessimism, it's so deep and it concerns me because these two conventions -- and we've talked about this on the show. i'm afraid of the violence that could happen outside the conventions. i'm afraid that people -- >> at both conventions? >> both conventions. people no longer know that line of where to stop, that they feel justified not just in voicing their opposition to the candidates but doing so physically and even violently. >> just one quick yes or no. it's 15% in the polls that get you into the debates. >> that's correct. >> thanks, frank. >> always good to see you. i can't decide whose tennis shoes i like better. >> i don't know if these made it on. >> between who? >> between you and frank. there is no question. i like charlie's better. bye, frank. ahead, why some companies reportedly spend $40,000 an hour to learn about millennials. first, it is 8:07.
8:08 am
what was i thinking? >> they know everything. >> it's 8:07.

a chaotic commute this morning in rome, a city almost as famous for its traffic as its landmarks. the effort to ease congestion on the ground hit an unexpected obstacle from almost 2,000 years ago. seth doan is at rome's iconic coliseum with how work on the subway system discovered ancient ruins. >> reporter: good morning. when expanding the subway line in rome, there's extra time built into the schedule for what they call archaeological risk, finding something they'd never expect. it's a city with subway stops near places like the famed spanish steps, or this stop called coliseum. so expanding the metro here
8:14 am
presents challenges and rather spectacular discoveries. we were invited to this construction site where the line "c" subway is being built. it looks more like an archaeological dig, but this is rome. >> was it a surprise to find this? >> yes, absolutely. >> reporter: rome's head of archaeology in this area showed us what they uncovered when digging down several stories to build this subway station. >> now we are nine meters deep. >> wow. >> reporter: around 2,000 years ago, these were military barracks for the emperor's army. >> they were decorated with mosaics and frescos. >> reporter: the 39 rooms were used as weapons storage and sleeping areas for troops of ancient rome. 13 adult skeletons were also uncovered. >> if we hadn't built this station, we'd never have found
8:15 am
these roman remains. >> reporter: instead of stopping work or relocating the find, the plan is to have an architect design a way to incorporate this discovery into the metro stop itself. it'll become rome's first archaeological station and likely be along the lines of metro museums in places like athens, greece, where travelers at a number of subway stops can peruse ancient artifacts. >> the problem is not the archaeology. most of the problems are the delays in construction of metropolitan are due to finance problems. >> not having enough money? >> not having enough money. >> reporter: yes, another very roman issue, not enough money. the line "c" subway system is not scheduled to be completed
8:16 am
until 2021, and there have been plenty of delays, many for a far less visual, though just as ancient problem, corruption. gayle? >> thank you, seth doan. doesn't the coliseum look good on set? >> seth has just moved from beijing to rome. >> a lot of fun places. ibm's watson mastered the art of trivitrivia, but can it conquer song? >> so it listens to this piece, and it deconstructs this piece of music, learns from it, and gets inspired by it. >> wow. ahead, is this the future of music? you're watching "cbs this morning." padvil pm gives you the healingu at nsleep you need, it. helping you fall asleep and stay asleep so your body can heal as you rest. advil pm. for a healing night's sleep.

so i asked about adding once-daily namenda xr to her current treatment for moderate to severe alzheimer's. it works differently. when added to another alzheimer's treatment, it may improve overall function and cognition. and may slow the worsening of symptoms for a while. (announcer) namenda xr doesn't change how the disease progresses. it shouldn't be taken by anyone allergic to memantine, or who's had a bad reaction to namenda xr or its ingredients. before starting treatment, tell their doctor if they have, or ever had a seizure disorder, difficulty passing urine, liver, kidney, or bladder problems, and about medications they're taking. certain medications, changes in diet, or medical conditions
8:20 am
may affect the amount of namenda xr in the body and may increase side effects. the most common side effects are headache, diarrhea, and dizziness. all my life, he's protected me. ask their doctor about once-daily namenda xr and learn about a free trial offer at many companies are hiring experts to teach them about young people. the self-proclaimed millennial experts are on the rise. last year u.s. organizations reportedly spent between $60 million and $70 million on so-called generational consulting. derek thompson is the senior editor for "the atlantic" and recently wrote about millenni s millennials. so "the wall street journal" reported they spend as much as $20,000 an hour for these consultants. who are these companies that are spending that amount of money? >> $20,000, right.
8:21 am
it's really across the board. you have fast food restaurants. you have tech companies like oracle. you have companies like hbo, who are spending money not to learn how to treat the millennials who are their own employees, but rather how to reach millennials in this age of media fragmentation. it really is across the board. >> when we were all 20-something, the age range of millennials, i don't recall anybody trying to figure out what do we need to do to figure out what you guys like. >> so therefore, why? >> yeah, what do they want to find out? and ask them, derek. >> i feel like this is one of those timeless problems. people have always been confused about young people. there are plato quotes about it. the bible has chapters about this. there are always a few people ready to monetize that timeless problem. how do i raise my child? how do i disagree productively with my spouse? you can understand where this is coming from. but then you look at the
8:22 am
solutions. find work that's meaningful. treat your employees with respect. this is rather obvious stuff for $20,000 an hour. >> common sense. >> just for the sake of me, what ages are millennials? >> typically you think of -- this is an 80 million person generation. it really is this group that sort of came into the work force around the great recession. the oldest would be in the mid-30s. >> are they spending more money? why the focus, the attention? >> for a couple reasons. first of all, on the one hand, you have people that don't understand them as employees. they're always on their phones. they have this new fleet of apps. so they kpot size them essentially and pay tens of thousands of dollars for a consultant to say, no, they're humans. then sometimes you have companies like hbo who are trying to reach a demographic that is not tapped into those legacy products like pay tv. the question becomes, how do we get a new consumer demographic
8:23 am
to buy our product? >> just stream it. >> they are the largest working demographic, are they not? >> they are. they're 80 million people, 50 million of them in the work force. this is an important point because 50 million people, right. this is 25% larger than the state of california. if i asked you, how do you get a person from california to work with you in the office? your first question is, well, are they northern california or southern? are they in the entertainment business or in retail? or in tech? you begin to break it down. this is not one big demographic blob. this is 50 million individuals, and they all have their own needs. >> do they have special needs that others don't? >> i don't think they do. i think a lot of what's happening is an older generation is seeing a younger group with smaller instruments in their hands, these little phones, and saying, we can't possibly understand them because they look so weird. they pay $20,000 to a person that tells them, these are just human beings, and then they possibly treat them more like the human beings they should have been treated like at the beginning of the session.
8:24 am
>> without stereotyping, do millennials work differently than baby boomers, for instance? >> i think absolutely young people who have access and have grown up in an environment of different media technology, absolutely communicate differently. you're talking about comparing a generation of, you know, landline phone users to digital natives who might never use a landline phone in their entire life, and they're constantly communicating with people via text and e-mail. so it is a different focus. it is a different way to communicate, but at the same time, it comes back to the same values. people want meaning from work. they want respect from their bosses. >> we want that at all ages. i want meaning from work. don't you? >> yes, darling. i do. i also want to know how they differ from 15-year-olds. >> that's a great question. 15-year-olds aren't working, so it's difficult to figure out what they'll be like in ten years. >> but thefr the same sources of information. >> even more so. >> you are one of those millennials you speak of. >> i am, indeed. i confess. >> thank you,
