4:18 pm
that although they have free halt care under the indian services, signing up for obamacare as a supplement will help the reservation. >> there is a legacy of horrible failed federal policy in this country that american indians justifybly have a considerable amount of mistrust. >> born and raised here, cooper is ceo of the reservation offering primary care and emergency services, pharmacist, dentist but services are limited. right now when patients need major surgery, mammograms or even cancer treatments they are referred to specialists outside of indian lands. >> in indian country a lot of services that are needed that do not meet the definition of immediate threat to life or malfunction do get denied. >> reporter: two-thirds of those referral claims are rejected putting native americans at risk of paying major medical bills

4:20 pm
carolina. >> joining me from anchorage, alaska, member of the shohonebannock tribes, professor, it's good to talk to you, thank you for your time. have navigators associated with the affordable care act, have they talked with members about the affordable care act. >> not yet. if you think about the history of the indian health system it's all about shortages, and too few resources to do the job. the affordable care act is potentially a game changer where for the first time those resources could be available. >> i'm wondering so would that go hand in hand with perhaps the tribal leaders not being armed
4:21 pm
with enough information about the affordable care act to adequately share with members? >> i think most tribal leaders are pretty aware. it's a matter of gearing up. it all doesn't have to happen at once. in fact, one of the interesting things is that american indians and alaskan natives have an opportunity to sign up beyond the normal deadline so there is not the same sort of time pressure to sign up right now. there is an opportunity to work through some of the difference great, that's what i want to get to. from your perspective why has it been difficult to get members to register and start browsing the site? is it something more than the problems that have been associated with the roll out of the site? >> the website is actually a separate issue. for american indians and alaskan natives. right now you have to go through the indian system and fill out
4:22 pm
paperwork. it will be the old fashion way. under the rules for the mandate there is an exemption for native americans, but that exemption has to be filed for manually. the website issues are not the same for us. >> how much of a delay in getting interest from members has to do with the general lack of trust with anything that has the government's fingerprints on it? >> i think the big issue is complexity. for example, half the indian health system is in states, and the rules are going to be different in all 50 states and resources available will be different in all 50 states. that is something that has to be worked out in th in the next sel months. >> do you think it will actually take years to get tribal members
4:23 pm
to sign up even though this could be very good for them? >> i hope not. to me the idea that the united states offers healthcare as part of treaties is really a solemn obligation. in the 200 year history of the united states plu it has never happened. all we have to do it fill out paperwork, that's a pretty remarkable opportunity. >> we appreciate your time. thank you for joining us. professor of the university of alaska in anchorage. president obama is in brooklyn, new york, fifthing pathways and technology early college high school. the president is there to talk about the importance of education among the middle class. he mentioned his school in the state of the union address as a stand out in education. roxana at p tech where the president just finished spea speaking. roxana, what did the president share with the students?

4:25 pm
we should be doing everything we can to keep your streets safe and protect from you gun violence. we should be doing everything we can to keep families from falling into poverty and build more ladders of opportunity to help people who are willing to work hard climb out of poverty. >> reporter: now the president's visit could be seen as a way to divert attention from criticism he has been facing over his affordable care act. but it also gives him an opportunity to focus on something he likes to talk about, which is education, and he is going to be calling for more funding for education which is a hot topic with this ongoing budget battle. it's important that the president is not only here to talk about education, he's also in new york for two important fundraising events for the democratic party. >> two important fundraisers, all right, tha.

i get it. we had a small funeral for my cat when she died when i was a child. i get it. >> and your pet felt like a member of the family, correct? >> yes, however, the coffin was a shoe box, tony. >> it was a shoe box. that didn't cost much. >> not at all. it was all love. >> it was all love. >> love. >> shoes box? richelle, thank you. pakistan has condemned u.s. drone strikes in its tribal areas, and says officials never had prior knowledge of the strikes. but media reports say there is strong evidence that senior military and intelligence officials approved of the strikes. we have more now from the united nations. >> we heard from the ambassadors at the united nations in the forum here at the united nations. he appeared to respond to recent media reports saying thinks government had, indeed, given consent to u.s. officials to launch strikes and negotiating
4:33 pm
targets and allowing the united states to use pakistani air transcript. he vehemently denied those reports and called for an end to future strikes. >> mr. chairman and pakistan, all drone strikes are a chilling reminder that the reprisal strikes of terrorists are around the corner. they put all pakistanis at risk. the psychological impact of the use of drones on the relatives and civilians killed in inhumane manner incites more behavior, and drone strikes are not productive. >> the issue of drones are being discussed here at the united nations. >> australian police say they have uncovered an international drug trafficking scam where elderly retiree retirees are beg
4:34 pm
mules. it came to light when a couple arrived in perth unaware they were carrying $7 million worth of methamphetamine. we have more. >> reporter: federal police in perth present the 3.5-kilos of methamphetamine worth almost $7 million. brought into australia by no ordinary means. >> the investigation has revealed the complex and highly organized scam in which older australians appear to be targeted by a tour company identified them as oz cam tours. >> this woman only wants to be known as sue, the trip of the lifetime winning an all ex-pen paid to canada with her husband. the return was another part of the prize. new luggage. arriving at cuss tomorrows the couple grew suspicious and turned their luggage in. the drugs were found in the lining. >> i could have ended up in jail for 25 years or whatever it is.
4:35 pm

4:36 pm
discuss this. the nsa spied on 35 world leaders, let's bring in jim walsh, who is with us now. jim is a research associate in security studies at m.i.t. jim, good to have you on the program. you've probably seen this from former secretary of state madeleine albright. she says let me just say this is not a surprise, countries all spy on each other. albright said this at the center for american progress. this was in washington. then she went on to say, i will very much remember when i was at the united nations the french ambassador coming up to me saying, why did you say that to somebody about why do you want women in the government? she follows by saying, excuse me? to what extent is the domestic politics driving the
4:37 pm
conversation, and frankly, look, the outrage over this issue? >> yeah, yeah, tony, i think you're right. spy something as old as foreign policy. you're playing those board games, there were always spice. it happens. it's to be expected. i think part of it is domestic politics. look, it makes these folks look weak and compromised. if the president obama, if it was found out that china was eavesdropping on his calls it would make him look pretty bad. that resonates with voters who already don't like the spying scandal. you saw reports earlier this week that there may have been as many as millions of french phones, individuals whose lines were being surveyed. it's unpoplar in europe. but i think it's more than that, tony. if you live to angela merkel's comment, it sounds like this isn't posturing. she's mad. she's ticked. frankly, you know, you can
4:38 pm
understand that. yes, it's to go expected, but personal international politics depends on national interests, of course, but it depends on personal relationships, trust, and i think these folks are mad at us even though they would do it. >> jim, that gets to the next point i want to get at here. look, these revelations are in black and white. they are on paper, documents leaked by edward snowden and other sources. isn't the problem here that methods and practices are getting out. albright went on to say that this will make it harder for secretary kerry to do his job, do you agree? >> that's a great question, and it's the right question to ask, and it's the perennial question. what is the nature of the compromise, the balance between us finding this out for the first time and then the consequences. and frankly i think it's hard to judge, tony. we always hear the sources and methods are being compromised, that always comes up. the question does it apply in this case? it seems to me that the bad guys
4:39 pm
know we're coming after them. the bad guys know we're listening in on the calls. they know that and it's a cat and mouse game. we'll have to see the damage, and i frankly worry, you and i talked about this at the beginning of the story. i worry that this was a big, big program without scope without limits, kept in the dark that we didn't know about. and you know, that troubles yes. >> let me pick up on that, without scope and without limits. if you were a world leader who has been spied on. if you're angela merkel and your cell phone has been eavesdropped on, don't you really want to know what america has? how many phone calls, and of what nature if you know what i'm getting at here? >> absolutely. i would think you would want to know precisely what it is that the u.s. has been collecting. jay carney said we're not doing it.
4:40 pm
we won't oh do it in the future. he declined to say whether they had done it in the past. you absolutely want that. let me make a point on the other side of the ledger. germany and france both have big intel agencies, and they come to the u.s. asking-- >> if i don't cut you off your window is going to die, and there it is. all right, jim walsh, my apologies. sharks, they're frightening, mysterious and among the most misunderstood creatures of the sea. until now you're about to meet the shark robot that will explore the undersea world without interfering with that world. to get that story we had to do a little diving ourselves. here is "techknow." >> this is going to change our we study animals i in the ocean. this is going to change how we do it. >> reporter: chris low among the
4:41 pm
shark lab getting to know him and his work means getting your feet wet. obviously here a day at the office requires a different attire and provides a different view of the world. it takes only a few moments underwater to understand chris lowe's passion for the ocean. >> how do we find a way of studying them where we don't have to be right there? with. >> reporter: the answer he believes is this. >> this might look like a torpedo, but this is the robot we've been talking about. chris clark, you're the plan behind this. tell me about this. >> we have this autonomous underwater vehicle, you deploy it in the ocean to collect data. on this project we want to collect data about sharks. it uses sensors compass. >> what are the sensors. >> we attached sensors that listen for sharks, and we put
4:42 pm
this thing in the water. it listens for the tags attached to the sharks. it follows the sharks as they move. what we have here are some dummy plugs. these will attach to what we call hydrophones which is like a microphone, but it goes underwater. this project in particular those hydrophones are listening for some acoustic tags. these are things about this big that we will attach to fish or shark. every two seconds it will ping, ping. >> what is the end game? how do you see this technology changing the way you do marine science and the way we understand the bios here. >> i envision a day where robot also enable us to do things that we've never been able to do before. measure aspects of behavior that we've never been able to measure before. we're going to build a database of the ocean that has never been
4:43 pm
created at this scale. i think this will change our future. >> so cool. "techknow," maria joins us from los angeles. that looks like a lot of fun. i want to get to swimming with the sharks and the dive in just a moment. but what kind of information do you think the scientists are learning from this research? >> well, so they're really interested in studying shark behavior. sharks as you mentioned are fairly mysterious. it's been hard to get a grasp on what they do, what their ecology is like. they're trying to understand what sharks are doing. what are they eating, what are their different environmental conditions that might predict when a shark will go to certain place, and really understand what is happening in the sharks' environment in realtime. so they're really getting a glimpse of realtime window of what is happening under the
4:44 pm
water with organisms that are poorly understood in many cases. >> what was that dive like? it looked pretty cool doing it, what was it like? >> i'm a biologist, and i've been in a lot of places, i've done really cool things with cool organisms, but this was one of the most extraordinary experiences with wildlife hands down. it was a beautiful place. the catalina island setting is extraordinarily beautiful. but swimming with the sharks, i had a little bit of a fear factor going in there, almost anyone would, but they're extremely peaceful. they're very docile. these are leopard sharks so they're not harmful to humans in any way. but it was a serene experience to swim with these elegant, graceful creatures. >> come on, share that fun. marie y i appreciate it.
4:45 pm
thank you. and you have more. that is sunday 7:30 eastern. we're getting a new look at just how powerful and unpredictable the sun can be. nasa released this video showing the sun's most recent mass ejection. does that make sense? coronal mass ejection. the magnetic filament erupted from the surface that they call the canyon of fire. it is giving us a magnificent view that is holding it all in place. we have more in sports when we return. >> meteorologist: coming up i'll tell you what restaurant are doing to bring more customers in through the door. on inside story, we bring together unexpected voices closest to the story, invite hard-hitting debate and

(vo) and follow it no matter where it leads, all the way to you. al jazeera america. take a new look at news.
4:47 pm
there's more to financial news than the ups and downs of the dow. for instance, can fracking change what you pay for water each month? have you thought about how climate change can affect your grocery bill? can rare minerals in china affect your cell phone bill? or how a hospital in texas could drive up your healthcare premium? i'll make the connections from the news to your money real.
4:48 pm
>> michael eaves here with a day on sports. we have the world series here now. >> reporter: yes, it's even and that's all you can ask for. when you get to the playoffs, winning the series can sometimes hinge on that elusive intangib intangible: momentum. one moment things are going the team's way and the next nothing can go right. momentum has having a problem final a permanent home. game one was the cardinals' mistakes that derailed.
4:49 pm
and the red sox in game two. the cards go on to post a victory and even the series at 1-1, now the game shifts to bush stadium in game three tomorrow night. >> looking forward to game three and continue our pace in the mound. i thought with the exceptio excl inning we continue to throw the ball from the mound. we'll lose one of the bats and that's understood going in. but still david is in a pretty good place offensively. >> excited to get home. i know everybody is. being able to take the world series back to st. louis and have our home fan base supporting us. you know, it's been--these last couple of days meant a lot to come here at fenway. it's a pretty unique experience for a lot of guys who have never played here before to be able to do it on this stage. there is no place like home. not a doubt about it. >> joining us now wallace
4:50 pm
matthews or these teams are pretty good defensively during the regular season what are you making of miscued in game one and two. >> on game one you have to put down the opening night legitimators, but i can't explain what the red sox were doing on that play. it was an aggressive play in st. which put pressure on the defense and a bad pressure to throw that ball to third base. >> that's the thing. we talk about nerves not being necessarily an issue for experienced teams. but you know, we get deeper in the playoffs and we start to see the tight anything of the grip as it relates to nerves and stress. >> aggressive baserunning puts pressure on the defense, and you know, third base sent the runner home which was smart play and obvious lead. they weren't sure if the runner at second was going to run as well. i think they've admitted that it
4:51 pm
