tv   CNN Saturday Morning  CNN  April 13, 2013 5:00am-6:30am PDT

5:00 am
good morning, everyone. i'm alison kosik. >> i'm victor blackwell. breaking news out of indonesia a brand new audio just in to cnn, take a look. this is the scene of a plane crash at bali international airport. >> as to what happened the lion air flight missed the runway and landed in the water off the western edge of the airport. 108 passengers and crew members were on board. amazingly all survived. around 50 were hospitalized. listen to how he described it. >> shortly after 3:30 p.m. local time this incoming lion air domestic flight overshot the airway and landed off the indian
5:01 am
ocean and split in half. people somehow getting rescued from the inside of the aircraft. fires and engines, we're told there were some minor injuries but everyone survived, about 100 passengers and crew, everyone got off safely, no one killed at least in the impact of the landing although as we were told some people did go to the hospital with injuries. they tell us everyone is alive. it broken in half in the ocean and seems to be sinking now. the domestic jet holds about 100 people and sitting in the indian ocean just off the end of the runway with a big crack the forward third of the fuselage split in half and somehow they were able to get the people off the plane, i'm not sure how. we are old people jumped off the plane, i didn't see any rescue chutes but they were able to get people off. it's not far off the shore so
5:02 am
they didn't have to go too far to get to land. when we saw the wreckage we thought everyone here feared the worst and amazingly they seem to have rescued everyone alive. we're told some did suffer minor injuries. >> you look at the pictures and it is amazing that everybody survived. it brings back memories of miracle on the hudson. >> flock of geese the problem in the hudson crash. >> this one just sliding off the runway. >> we do know that there was a crack in the fuselage, the back half of the plane falling off. we'll bring you more details as we get them. let's go to north korea now and the reaction by the u.s. to missile threats. missile defense systems are being readied in the region in case north korea fires a missile.
5:03 am
now the u.s. has been pretty confident that a test firing is likely. >> secretary of state john kerry is in china right now talking to north korea's number one trade partner. our foreign affairs reporter elise labbott is in washington. what is the message secretary kerry is delivering to china? >> well a couple of things, alison. first of all he wants china to give a tough message to north korea to stop these belligerent threats, all of these provocative acts like getting its missiles ready and start finding a diplomatic way forward. he wants china to stop the illegal flow of arms and weapons that are helping fuel its nuclear program. >> why do they need china on board in order to keep north korea in check? is china that powerful to push north korea the other way? >> china is their main economic and political partner, really their one close ally not only in
5:04 am
the region but the world. china has an important role to play, it can have a lot of influence. what the chinese felt the united states our influence is limited. if you look, china is not having any effect. there have been many times over the last few years that china has given a tough message to north korea, don't do a nuclear test, don't do a missile test. stop these threats and north korea continues. so i think we might overestimate the leverage that the chinese have, but certainly there is a lot more they could do. all of a sudden fuel shipments could stop, aid shipments can stop. there is more china can do but i think north korea is on a course of its own. from our understanding they're not listening to the chinese that much. >> elise this is victor. fareed zakaria said this bluster from north korea in the previous administration of kim jong-il was just extortion. what is it now? what is the motive for launching
5:05 am
this test missile, this test fire? is it financial? >> well, there is a kind of pattern to north korea's actions that goes something like this, victor. first you make a lot of threats, you threaten to launch a missile, get the international community very excited, then there is some kind of missile test, some kind of nuclear test, and then you sit back and say, the north koreans sit back and say okay we won this round. what are you going to give us? there is a feeling that north korea does want aid, financial enumeration or stopping its acts and getting back to the table but no one really knows exactly what kim jong-un wants. officials say the north koreans want to be accepted as a nuclear power, they want to have arms talks with the united states. they don't want to talk about giving up their nuclear program but secretary kerry and others say that is never going to happen. there are some things they can give north korea that for years they've been looking for which is that aid, which is acceptance
5:06 am
in the international community, some kind of security guarantees and a peace treaty but no one knows what kim jong-il is looking for and since he cut off communications with the south koreans of the united states it's hard to ascertain. >> elise labott in washington thank you. john kerry is scheduled to speak in beijing later in the 9:00 a.m. eastern hour. we'll bring it to you live. now the retrial of ousted egyptian president hosni mubarak began as scheduled but did not last long because the judge took himself off the case. you'll hear the commotion there in the courtroom. mubarak watched in a cage in the courtroom, he's in a chair now. he has been in a hospital bed. his trial for the deaths of hundreds of protesters will now be moved to another court. with the senate poised to start debate on gun control the mother of a handy hook shooting victim makes her case.
5:07 am
francine wheeler delivered this address, you see online and on the radio. her son was killed and here is some of what she says. >> our younger son, ben, age 6, was murdered in his first grade classroom on december 14th, exactly four months ago this weekend. i've heard people say that the tidal wave of anguish our country felt on 12/14 has receded but not for us. it was, it feels as if it happened just yesterday and in the four months since we lost our loved ones, thousands of other americans have died at the end of a gun. thousands of other families across the united states are also drowning in our grief. please help us do something before our tragedy becomes your tragedy. when i packed for washington on monday, it looked like the
5:08 am
senate might not act at all. then after the president spoke in hartford and a dozen of us met with senators to share our stories, more than two-thirds of the senate voted to move forward. but that's only the start. they haven't yet passed any bills that will help keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people. and a lot of people are fighting to make sure they never do. now is the time to act. please, join us. >> francine wheeler, the first person other than the president or vice president to deliver the weekly address since president obama took office. now to texas, gun control supporters across the country are outraged to see the nra supporting tonight's nascar sprint cup called the nra 500. some people say it's just too soon after newtown and interferes with the gun violence debate. one connecticut senator is
5:09 am
asking for fox not to broadcast it. susan candiotti is at the texas motor speedway in ft. worth. good morning to you. there's a lot of mixed reaction to this at this point, isn't there? >> reporter: oh, there's a lot of it. good morning, alison. yes, the race doesn't start until tonight and in a matter of hours, this parking lot will be packed, but questions over the nra's sponsorship of this event, negotiated by the texas motor speedway right here and approved by sanctioned by nascar, that's what's grabbing the headlines right now. it really comes down to timing, because of the debate going on over gun control legislation in washington right now, and senator chris murphy of connecticut, who has been outspoken in support of the newtown families, who lost so many loved ones at the sandy hook school, he really wishes, he says, that nascar would intervene in this and that fox would decide not to broadcast
5:10 am
this event. >> give the impression that fox and nascar endo,,ing the nra's position. i know it's not nascar for fox sports' intent to suggest that they are taking sides in this gun debate but when they flash their name up on the screen this weekend with the nra, i think it's just really insensitive to a lot of the families that are on the other side of this debate. >> reporter: now fox has no comment on all of this. source with knowledge of the event tonight says that fox is contractually bound to broadcast this event, but here at the texas motor speedway, race officials say this is just about a race, not about politics. >> susan, i hope you can talk about something that is going to happen after the race. it's a celebration of sorts. tell us about what's going to happen and what the reaction has been in anticipation. >> reporter: well, what normally
5:11 am
happens at the end, what always happens at the end of this particular race is that the winner is given a couple of revolvers and they fire off blanks. it's tradition. we're in texas, and where a lot of people appreciate owning guns as they do in a lot of other places in the country but especially here, and so this is what people normally do. that, of course, has also raised some concerns on the parts of gun control advocates and senator chris murphy and newtown families is this the right time to be doing that this particular year? >> any indication, susan, that tradition may be halted at least for this one race? >> reporter: no, it's scheduled to go on. the race officials say we're not changing anything about what we're doing here. this is all about sports fans who are coming here to attend a nascar race and for the most part they said they have had very few complaints from people who are coming here, very few.
5:12 am

>> reporter: james holmes in colorado, jared loughner, all with mental health problems and all able to buy guns to kill. would proposed new background checks stop them? >> the common ground rests on a simple proposition that is criminals and the dangerous by mentally ill shouldn't have guns. >> reporter: it's not simple as all. who is considered dangerously mentally ill? under federal law if someone found by a judge to be "a mental defective or someone committed to any mental institution" but state standards vary widely and mental health records often don't make it into the data base used to make federal background checks. among the concerned privacy protection. the senate bill makes it clear sharing these records won't violate federal law. >> what we need to do is get all the records from the states into the federal system.

joe carter is here with the bleacher report. big headlines coming out of augusta and l.a. >> good story this is morning. jason day the australian is in the lead at the masters but of course the talk about what happened to tiger woods on hole 15 yesterday. he was tied for the lead at this point, sharp as ever, perhaps too sharp, because as you'll see in the video the ball hits the flagpole and ricochets back into the water. he had missed the flagpole it would have set him up for birdie and the outright lead. instead he loses a stroke and has to hit the shot again. he sticks the shot, bogeys the hole but drops him into second place where he would start today. he's not at the top of the leaderboard but he is playing well enough to be there on sunday. there is some dispute about where he dropped that ball, perhaps he could be disqualified. there's some saying that. we'll get into it with rachel nichols who is in augusta, at the top of the hour. the best story going into masters will continue into the

5:32 am
now listen to this. >> genetics, what can it mean, the ability to perfect the physical and mental characteristics of every unborn child. >> that was a clip from the 1997 sici-fi movie "gatica" to ensur only the best traits are handed down from generation to generation. dna becomes the passport to better careers and lifestyles but could a person's genetics be exploited for commercial gain in real life? on monday the supreme court is going to be hearing arguments to determine if companies can patent human genes and the decision could have a major impact on cancer research here in the u.s.. of the nearly 28,000 genes in the human genome more than a third are patented by universities and pharmaceutical companies including brca-1 and brca-2, increased risk of breast and ovarian cancer.
5:33 am
myriad genetics incorporated and the american civil liberties union, the case, let's talk about this, bring in paul callan, cnn legal contributor. good morning. >> good morning. >> a district attorney agreed with the aclu but later overturned twice by a federal appeals court. what happens if the supreme court upholds the ruling and says myriad genetics can patent these genes? >> this is a fascinating case and a fascinating field and i'll tell you why. think alexander graham bell and the telephone, think thomas edison and the light bulb, american inventors. the reason their inventions were protected under u.s. law under in fact the united states constitution is because of patent law. you invent something, you could profit from the invention at least for about 20 years and then it falls into the public domain. now, in the area of genes and medical devices, a lot of companies are going in, studying
5:34 am
parts of the human body and designing tests and that's exactly what myriad did in this case. they looked at a long stretch of human dna, about six feet in length. they isolated a small segment of it the size of a pinhead and that segment suggests that's the area where you can figure out if a woman is going to get breast cancer or ovarian cancer and they're saying they want to be able to patent the ability to kind of isolate, snip that gene for testing purposes. they spent $500 million inventing the process, and now they want to make money on it and that's what the supreme court is looking at. the reason i say it's fascinating is because the people who support myriad say if the supreme court says you can't patent this, these companies aren't going to spend money on medical research and we won't have these great advances in medical technology. other people say, like the american medical association, hey, you can't patent the human body. it's just wrong.
5:35 am
so that's sort of what the supreme court is looking at at this point, alison. >> can the supreme court really consider sort of that economic portion of this or the research portion of this? can they get into that as part of their decision making? >> it's certainly something that they look at but ultimately they're looking at the way patent law is written, and there's always been a rule that you cannot patent a sort of naturally occurring physical fact, so for instance, thomas edison might be able to patent the light bulb, but the invention of how to make the light bulb work but he couldn't patent electricity, so using that same concept, when you look at these genes, people who are opposing myriad say hey, this is a natural occurring process in the human body, when this mutation occurs that causes breast cancer. you can't have a private company patent that portion of the human body. so the supreme court looks at the wording of the law but
5:36 am
they're also going to look at the economic impact on this. for instance, we already allow patenting of seeds when there's a gene that is looked at with respect to plant life and other things. they've already said companies can patent resistant feeds and it's already taking place. it will have a big impact on commercial development of the new ideas in the united states. >> how soon are we going to have a decision? i want to hear your prediction on how you think the court is going to rule on this? >> we might have a decision as soon as june. i think that the court in the end will throw out a mixed decision. i think that they're going to try to uphold portions of the myriad patent, and maybe throw out some other aspects of it, maybe they could patent a smaller portion because you have
5:37 am
to encourage invention in the united states and it's very important to medical science. i mean, believe it or not, even michael jackson has a patent or had a patent on "smooth criminal anti-gravity" shoes, how they lean when they do the dances on stage, patented by michael jackson so we certainly wouldn't want to lose that for american society, would we? >> no, we wouldn't paul callan. thank you for your insight. >> nice being with you. >> same here. >> there was a time when i thought i really could lean like that. >> you can. >> you can't. >> sure you can. >> i just hit my forehead on the ground many times. crime in 60, a her mitt is out of hiding, a clerk brings a baseball bat to a gun fight, his here's crime in 60 seconds. four firefighters were held hostage with a man by a gun when they responded to a fake emergency call. laurent brown had financial

5:50 am
wage. we have the co-founders, david roddenberry and jim fleming join us now. thank you for joining us. we have brian next to us a participant in a program. let's start in new york. tell us how this works. >> well a healthy wage makes weight loss more effective by making it fun so it gives you a chance to win up to $10,000 by participating in our challenges and all you have to do is lose weight. >> easy enough, right? for some to say. >> brian, you are in a program and you said it's like a 10% program. explain what this is. >> up front i paid $150, weigh in and what i'm going to do 10%, within six months if i lose 10% i double my money and give me $300 for losing that weight. >> do you feel that's sort of the heat of the competition from your co-workers, is that a driver for to you lose weight? >> it is. the money, too, just think being it.
5:51 am
the last thing i want to do is lose $150 so if i can win $300 it's great but to not lose $150 that's even better. >> is it the competition you found or the money that really is the prime motivator here for the weight loss? >> they're two completely separate tools and both super effective. when you're on a team and you know that other people's prize hangs in what you're doing, that's a powerful motivator because the other people on your team aren't going to be too happy with you if you let them down so that's one tool, and then a completely separate tool is your own desire to as brian was saying avoid losing the money that you invested and also you want to try to win money so you have all sorts of things pushing you along which is one of the things that makes it so effective and also one of the things that makes it so much fun. >> david or jim, obesity is a big issue in this country. what kind of effect does it have on the workplace? are we really less productive when we're overweight? >> absolutely. you know, i think that what we
5:52 am
hear from people who have lost the weight after succeeding and winning money, they've gone off their medications, they're more productive, more active, more successful personally and professionally, the self-confidence you get when you make a positive life change. we're all about putting money in your pocket. >> who is putting the money up, the company or your company. >> we have a mix of revenue sources. employers pay to us help their employees get healthy, participants like bray an put in the $150 because they're more motivated and health systems that are interested in creative solutions to obesity and this seems to be a promising avenue to reverse our nation's obesity epidemic. >> it's important to be clear that everyone's eligible to participate, not just people who work at companies that are doing healthy wage. anyone can go to
5:53 am
and try to lose up to $10,000. >> do you have any tips to get everybody started on losing weight? >> it's figuring out the program that's going to work best for you. we have a bmi challenge, one year long for folks who are obese and looking to make that significant life change, get to a healthy weight and six-month challenge, which is more manageable, 10% of your weight which is basically a pound a week and you double your money if you're successful. if you're looking at a temporary change that might be a fit and we also have a team challenge you compete for a $10,000 grand prize. family members or co-workers, just a group that you think that accountability of losing weight would be a group would be a fit we'd encourage to you sign up to are that one. >> let's talk about success. is it working for you? >> i'm a little over two months in and already lost 16 pounds. >> puts you at what percentage? >> i need to lose a total of 25 so a little over seven. >> how much more time do you have? >> about four more months. >> think you can do it? >> i think so.
5:54 am
>> last question to new york, there are studies that have come out in the journal of american medicine that yes these programs work to get people to lose the weight but so many, if not the lion's share of the participants gain the weight back, so what then is the benefit for the individuals who participate in the companies who thought they were going to save money by reducing the health care cost? >> well the problem of weight loss and weight maintenance is a different problem and the type of financial incentive solution that works for weight loss is different for weight maintenance so in a weight loss paradigm, 10% weight loss over six months helps you lock in and be successful, whereas in a maintenance type of phase you don't have a goal. your goal is like every day you just want to eat healthy and be successful as keeping your weight off. we pile it in maintenance schemes that have been successful, you know, with different types of financial incentive programs instead of like a bet, it's a different
5:55 am
type of program. so we see promise with financial incentives both on the weight loss side and on the weight m t maintenance side. >> maintenance is the hardest part. >> it is, keeping it up. >> thank you so much. brian, good luck with the competition. >> and congratulations on what you've lost so far. >> thanks. he first brought us "gangnam style" and psy is out with a new single. >> we'll play some of the song for you. you want to hear it. ♪

6:01 am
>> reports earlier from indonesian officials said as many as 50 people were hospitali hospitalized. we don't know the cause of the plane to have missed this runway but a huge crack there near the rear of the plane. with learned from the airline they've only been flying the plane for less than a month so that begs the question if there are mechanical problems. the questions there we don't yet have the answer. of course there will be an investigation and we'll stay on top of it. let's go to north korea and the tensions over possible missile firing from the north. >> secretary of state johner cancy in china where he met with counterparts to talk about north korea. cnn's ana koren is in south korea. and elise labott in washington. what is john kerry hoping to get from china? >> in a word, wants china to get
6:02 am
tough on north korea. china is north korea's most important economic and political backer and they want them to use that influence to not only tell north korea to stop these acts, to stop these threats, and get back to the table talking about denuclearization but it also wants china to be a little more stringent about stopping the illegal flow of money and weapons that are helping build up its nuclear program. >> anna, what is the reaction in south korea to the threats? do they think the north will really fire a missile? >> alison, that was certainly the thinking by the south koreans and also the u.s., that's what the intelligence is pointing out, there would be a missile launch, they are positioned on the east coast of north korea and then there was this information there would be multiple rocket launches. it's important to note north korea has never once said it
6:03 am
would conduct a missile test. this is from intelligence that you would have thought it would have happened by now. it hasn't. there's a big day coming up on the 15th of april the anniversary of the birth of north korea's founder kim il-sung, the grandfather of kim jong-un. perhaps things are escalating here on the korean peninsula. >> secretary kerry was there in seoul and the unknown kim jong-un but the new president park in south korea, what was his message for her and for their government and the people of south korea? >> as you say, john kerry was here yesterday and the united states is a very good friend of south korea, so who is basically pledging his support to this country and said if there is any provocation from the north, the u.s. will be standing right beside it, supporting it and obviously japan. so his message was one of, you know, tough words to north korea, to not go ahead with the
6:04 am
missile test and basically to, you know, come to the table and talk. the u.s. would be interested in talking, in entering diplomating talks with north korea if they were serious about denuclearization but this is the problem because we know that north korea is gung ho on developing its nuclear progrwea program. the door for diplomacy has been opened. >> elise let me ask you one more question about china, if china isn't on board with us can the u.s. hope to get north korea to back down on the rhetoric? >> u.s. officials, alison, all admit and analysts say all roads lead to china. china is so important here. they see china as key because china has the pocketbook. china can all of a sudden stop aid to north korea, be a little bit tougher, say listen those fuel shipments are running a little bit late but i think we might be overestimating china's
6:05 am
influence here. you've seen china over recent years talk to the north koreans, warning them to not make a nuclear test, not to do a missile test and north korea goes ahead anyway. there is a big debate in china from senior officials up to president saying we're not getting much bang for our buck with north korea so it remains to be seen over the coming weeks and months how cozy china remains with north korea. the u.s. has tried to get china to crack down in the past, hasn't had too much success but china might be reaching its end point. >> elise labott, anna coren thank you. some of kim jong-un's most passionate supporters the young people because they're taught at a young age to pay homage to their new leader and hate america. brian todd met one man who went

6:10 am
flagstick, once in a very many rounds chance, went into the water and he has to figure out where to drop the ball. golf rules say he actually has three different options, and the option that he chose was to take it close as possible to the original spot of his spot. now, close as possible is something that is of course up for interpretation. when tiger was talking after his round yesterday, he said in two separate interviews that he took that drop about two yards away from the original spot. if you look at replays, it's a little bit closer that be that, looks more like a few feet, hard to tell, depends on the angle but it's up to the rules committee to decide is that as near as possible? it's of course a matter of opinion and that is where things become murky because the people have questions, are you going to show favoritism to a four-time masters champion? was he actually doing what's within the rules? remember, tiger was disqualified from a tournament just a couple
6:11 am
months ago, first time it's ever happened to him in his career because of a rules violation. we'll have to see what happens here, masters officials are huddling up right now. >> rachel, what about the play of fred couples, the 1992 masters champ, proving he's still got it? >> reporter: yes, absolutely. certainly refreshing to see him and he loves this course. you can tell. golfers play well at courses that they love and enis of course the '92 champion. he has a real affection for playing here. he talks about it quite often and you can see that in his play. we have to see if it stands up through the weekend, but certainly he is having a good time here and one of the nice heartwarming stories of the tournament so far. >> rachel nichols live from augusta, thank you. let's not forget the 14-year-old who keeps making headlines at the masters. tianlang guan is the youngest player ever to make the cut at a major championship but it's not going completely smoothly. guan was penalized one stroke

6:28 am
trying to let's say push, encourage china to do as much as it can to put pressure on north korea. after all, the united states and secretary kerry believe that china really is, because of its tight relationship economically and in many other ways, with north korea, that it is the country that can do the most. so in somewhat diplomatic terms, but very strong terms, secretary kerry met with senior leadership of china and in every message he brought that home, that we have to, we china and the united states have to work together to resolve this peacefully and the way he would argue you resolve it peacefully is for china to exercise whatever influence it has. one thing we were hoping to hear was some specificity in terms of what china would do. one of the top officials right
6:29 am
after the latest meeting that the secretary had did say that china is committed to resolving this peacefully but there really were no, i think you'd have to say, specifics. so at the press series that will be coming up very shortly, we want to find out what is china committing to, if anything specific, certainly the rhetoric is there, and the intent to work together is there, and they say that they are going to be holding more talks, more meetings to try to put some flesh on the bones, but we will hope that we will hear a little bit more this evening. >> let's listen to what secretary kerry said a little earlier today. >> i bring you the president's greetings and his hopes that these meetings will do exactly what you describe, that we can provide a road map, as you've talked about, that we can raise the dialogue to a higher level, and over t
