these cars can whip around at nearly 170 miles an hour. the season finale for formula e this weekend in new york. we'll show you how the sport is gaining new traction and ruffling the feathers of a tradition. >> and jeff will tell us all about it. plus, we'll also take you to rome for a tour of a roman ruin that is larger than the coliseum. the grounds have long been a tourist attraction, but now the sites vast underground tunnel system is open to the public and they have added some special effects. you'll go on a tour. then we'll take a trip to the world's largest music festival, summerfest in milwaukee is a two-week-long showcase with more than 1,000 bands, many of whom have moved from the openers to headliners. we'll have a look at the stal's halfry we'lle from the killers right from the festival's main stage.
just your average saturday. >> drop the mic. >> that is all ahead. we begin this morning bracing for barry. the edges of the tropical storm are lashing the louisiana coast with heavy rain. roads are flooded, tens of thousands are without power forcing some evacuations. the storm's powerful winds have toppled trees and blown aluminum siding around in coastal communities, especially in shovin. barry is expected to make landfall about 85 miles southwest of new orleans in morgan city, louisiana. right now the storm is about 55 miles southwest of morgan city with maximum sustained winds of 65 miles per hour. lights are flickering in morgan city as the rain moves in right now. while forecasters have described barry as being more of a rain event coming on the heels of another deluge earlier this week, there are concerns about the strong winds and dangerous life-threatening storm surge. david begnaud begins our coverage in morgan city. david, good morning. >> reporter: jeff, good morning.
we lost power here at the hotel and throughout the city you have thousands of people that don't have power. what we are feeling right now are the winds that are really starting to pick up. no rain. but again, we are in the bull's-eye of what's expected to be the heaviest rain bands that could drop up to 20 inches of rain. let me tell you, this storm is crawling. i mean it is just inching, 5 miles an hour on so. they thought landfall was going to be at 7:00 a.m. this morning. now forecasters have backed that up to around noon. jeff berardelli will have more shortly. as we stand in morgan city, we're talking about this area north toward baton rouge being the one that could get some of the heaviest rainfall. within the last couple of years baton rouge had a devastating flood, and so people there are waking up this morning, watching the news and worrying about what's heading their way. towards the west is where we're thinking the eye of the storm could pass, where i am proud to say i grew up. on the eastern side in new
orleans, i just talked to a meteorologist at our affiliate wwl who said, david, i have lowered our rain chance. i think we'll get 8 to 10 inches, not up to 20 as we thought we may have had. but again the real concern here and forecasters have said it's not necessarily the winds, even though they expect barry to become a hurricane before landfall, it is the devastating rain. but michelle, as i come on the air this morning, we are not seeing much rain and the reports we do have from social media, from our crews that are in the area, the flooding is very minor so far. minor storm surge. not much to speak of this morning other than the high winds that are whipping right now as we wait for barry. again, we're talking about a midday landfall as it looks right now. >> the silver lining we hope continues, david. thank you. barry has new orleans on high alert for potentially dangerous flooding. the city is below sea level and the storm will test the
safeguards of new orleans they have put in place following the devastation from hurricane katrina some 14 years ago. omar villafranca is in the crescent city with the part of that story. omar, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. we are here on the south shore of lake pontchartrain, the west end area. the wind is starting to pick up over here. we're in between rain right now. the rain bands are to our east in the mobile area but people are getting ready. people in new orleans are breathing a sigh of relief because the mississippi river is expected to crest at about 17 feet, not the originally predicted 19 feet. keep in mind, the barriers around the city's levees are around 20 to 25 feet. officials expect those to do their job. but still people here in new orleans have learned their lesson, so people and businesses are doing everything they can t. we'll do whatever it takes. >> reporter: ray peters says he and his family are preparing for the worst. we spoke to him as he loaded
several sandbags into his pickup to place around his new orleans home. >> the generator is ready. i have my lights, my food, et cetera. >> reporter: peters is not alone. he is one of many locals who survived hurricane katrina. though forecasters say it is unlikely barry will become a ferocious hurricane, no one is taking any chances. >> i was here for katrina and we had 23 foot of water here. >> you had 23 feet of water for katrina? >> yeah, yeah. >> you learned that lesson? >> yeah, i learned that lesson the hard way. >> reporter: no mandatory evacuations were ordered in new orleans. officials instead urged residents to shelter in place, while tourists have been instructed to take shelter in hotels. many businesses in the city's popular french quarter are boarded up and closed. rolling stones lead singer mick jagger tweeted that the band will be spendingheht in the city after their concert was pushed to monday. there was a video of sdbags prepared in the facility for
flooding throughout the weekend. the louisiana governor says officials are preparing for a major rain event across much of the state. >> it is noteworthy that we are in our 260th day of a flood fight on the mississippi river, the longest in history, and that this is the first time in history a hurricane will strike the state of louisiana while the mississippi river has been in flood stage. >> reporter: the roads here in new orleans are pretty clear. there was no major rain overnight, so they're really lucky for that. but officials are warning people to not let their guard down because the rain is coming. we're just going to have to wait a little bit longer. dana. >> omar, obviously wise advice and also no matter how much, as you mentioned there, already rain soaked. we're going to get more on barry rardelli. to meteogist jeff in not quite arriving yet. that's because this is a lopsided system.
it's dry on the north end, wet on the southeast end. now it's getting a little bit better organized as it starts to wrap that rain in. it's good news that it's happening late, otherwise this could have been a much stronger system. you can see that heavy rain and those bands beginning to rotate in to places like new orleans and biloxi. let's take a look at your weather headlines. the big story is the rain, because some places will get stuck under heavy rain bands. and because of that, 15 to 20 inches of rain is possible. wind gusts will be strong, not necessarily strong for a hurricane, but still strong enough. 80 miles an hour at least knocking down trees. we already have power outages there. maximum storm surge 3 to 6 feet, isolated tornados are possible, especially on the eastern side of the system. rre cent.e ol forecm th natiol the's the storm50ff thecoast. makes landfall this afternoon. notice how slow it moves. by late tonight it's still in central louisiana. then it weakens to a depression tomorrow, moves up to the north through the mississippi valley.
the whole way it's dumping very heavy rain and that runoff is going into the mississippi river, so you can see the progression of this system. now wind gusts, we are going to see wind gusts that get past 60, at times 70 miles an hour. as we head through the day we'll see wind gusts go up to 72 miles an hour in places like baton rouge so bordering on hurricane-force winds that could knock down trees. let's show you the future radar and take it through the next 24 to 48 hours. notice once the heavy rain sets up in places like morgan city and baton rouge, it is there to stay for at least 24 hours. rain rates, 2 to 3 inches an hour possible. morgan city, baton rouge and then everything lifts to the north and moves up the mississippi river valley. how much rain are we likely to see? we'll see a bull's-eye of heavy rain that looks to be in the white of a foot. some places probably close to 20 inches of rain possible. we see that black shading right there. so that is the big problem, rain
rates 2 to 3 inches an hour, flash flooding is the big concern. >> tons of wind but here's the interesting thing. somebody said you could actually outwalk this storm, it's moving so slowly overall. >> and backwards. >> and the potential to dump all that rain. any chance that the levees could be topped? >> it's conceivable. they have made the system better, but storms can be tricky. if you get a lot of rain in a short period of time over the same place and all that water running into the mississippi river, it can happen, so be cautious. >> thanks a lot. vice president mike pence says it's up to house democrats to take action on the overcrowding at migrant detention centers. pence made those comments friday after visiting a new detention center near mcallen, texas. inside cameras spotted several hundred adult men being held in cage-like fences. many of them told reporters they were hungry and wanted to brush their teeth. friday night demonstrations and vigils protesting the conditions in those centers were held in
cities across the country, outside the white house and even on the doorstep of some of those detention facilities. mireya villarreal has the story where the vice president visited. >> reporter: the vice president spent hours touring border patrol cities, including the donna tent facility where he and his entourage saw migrants sleeping on the floor. >> boy, i'm the vice president. this is mrs. pence. >> reporter: cbs news is blurring the faces of minor children in custody. >> are you comfortable? are you being well taken care of? >> reporter: in the second holding facility the vice president was faced with a much different scene. nearly 400 men crammed behind caged fences with not enough room for them all to lie down. the men telling reporters they had been held there nearly 40 days and that they were hungry. the room was hot and the smell was strong. the press was pulled out within 90 seconds of the visit with the vice president. >> we are not a terrorist. >> reporter: seven republican senators were with him but not a
single democrat accepted the invitation to come along. >> each and every one of the children, each and every one of the parents that i spoke to told me they were being treated well. >> reporter: pence's visit comes on the heels of a scathing report from the office of inspector general, where one manager called the situation at border patrol facilities in june a ticking time bomb. at least five migrant children have died in government custody since september. in washington the house oversight committee released a report saying at least 18 children under 2 years old were separated from their parents for 20 days to half a year. at a hearing, members debated the conditions at migrant detention centers. >> children being separated from their parents in front of an american flag. when these women tell me that they were put into a cell and that their sink was not working and we tested the sink ourselves and the sink was not working and they were toelds to drink out of a toilet bowl, i believe them.
>> reporter: republican representative debbie lescoe says they are exaggerating. >> they are not drinking out of toilets. >> reporter: mireya villarreal, mcallen, texas. beginning tomorrow federal agents will begin a nationwide effort to arrest immigrants who have been issued final deportation orders. the raids will be targeted in ten major cities and will focus mainly on central american families that cross the u.s. border with mexico. president trump says the crackdown is meant to remove criminals from the country, but the leaders in some of these cities are pushing back against the effort. laura podesta is here in more. laura, good morning. >> good morning. that includes the mayor here in new york city along with the spervisor of los angeles county, the mayor of san francisco as well as the governor of california. now, this sweep is similar in scope to those carried out by immigration and customs enforcement or i.c.e. since 2003, but this one is different because it's part of president trump's plan to eventually
deport millions of people here illegally. >> they're going to take people out and they're going to bring them back to their countries, or they're going to take criminals out, put them in prison, or put them in prison in the countries they came from. >> reporter: president trump describing how he envisions i.c.e. agents will carry out the nationwide deportation action set to begin tomorrow. >> we're focused on criminals as much as we can. >> reporter: administration officials say the operation is targeting about 2,000 people, and in many cases entire families. previous crackdowns of the same size have resulted in an arrest rate of about 10%. but as immigration enforcement has become a central focus of the trump administration, it's creating a pushback in some communities with large immigration populations. new york city mayor and presidential candidate bill de blasio has said the city will not help i.c.e. in making arrests. san francisco mayor london breed reminded residents of her city of their rights. >> everyone is guaranteed
certain rights under the constitution, whether they are in this country illegally or not. >> reporter: california governor gavin newsom did the same on twitter. >> when we talk about knowing your rights -- without a warrant, you don't have to open the door. >> reporter: some local law enforcement officers say the raids could impact more than just illegal immigrants and their families. >> the fear alone, there's been studies that show that fear goes all the way to u.s. citizens already, that presence of i.c.e., so the impact is very, very damaging. >> reporter: friday night dozens of protests were held nationwide against both the proposed raids and the conditions at facilities where immigrants are being detained. hundreds gathered at this one outside the white house including undocumented immigrant harrison conteros. >> i don't know what to do but i know with my community i'm in strength and i actually feel stronger. i feel safe with my community. i feel protected by my
community. >> washington, d.c. is another city that has said it won't be assisting i.c.e. in making arrests. two leading hotel chains, marriott and choice have said they do not want i.c.e. to use their hotels to hold any detainees. dana. >> laura, very interesting. thank you very much. we'll continue to watch. president trump will be looking for a new labor secretary following the resignation of alex acosta. the decision comes amid fallout from his handling of multimillionaire and convicted sex offender jeffrey epstein's case. acosta tried to defend his actions when he was a federal prosecutors in florida 11 years ago. mr. trump said acosta's decision to resign was his own. nikole killion is at the white house with more. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, dana. president trump said he didn't ask for secretary acosta to resign. he called him a great secretary and said acosta chose to step down because he didn't want to be a distraction. appearing alongside president trump, labor secretary alex
acosta announced his resignation. it came amid the growing furor over his plea deal when he was a federal prosecutor in florida. >> it would be selfish for me to stay in this position and continue talking about a case that's 12 years old rather than about the amazing economy we have right now. >> reporter: the renewed scrutiny involves the decade-old deal with one-time trump acquaintance and multimillionaire jeffrey epst n epstein. he is now facing new federal sex trafficking charges in new york involving minors. the president sought to distance himself. >> i was not a fan of jeffrey epstein, and you watched people yesterday saying that i threw him out of a club. i didn't want anything to do with him. that was many, many years ago. >> reporter: democrats applauded acosta's resignation. >> secretary acosta did the right thing. >> reporter: yesterday in response to a requesty eps ays e eir client on bail pending his
trial, new york prosecutors accuse epstein of witness tampering. in court documents, they allege that late last year he wired $350,000 to two people close to him around the time he was allegedly abusing young women, witnesses who could testify against him. hoping to put the controversy behind him, the president turned to trade, traveling to battleground states wisconsin and ohio to tout his trade deal with mexico and canada. >> i don't want people leaving this country, meaning companies. i don't want to incentivize companies to leave, build product, sell their product and no tax whatsoever so we have no jobs, no factories, no taxes, no nothing. >> reporter: acosta will be on the job one more week and then his deputy, patrick pizzella, will take over. that will make him the third
acting secretary to head a department in recent months. jeff, a white house official wouldn't say when or if the president could name a permanent replacement. >> okay, thank you very much. at least 26 people, including two americans, were killed during a long siege at a hotel in somalia. the attack happened last night in the southern port city. lawmakers were meeting to discuss upcoming regional elections when al shabab militants used a car bomb to blast the entrance. four militants stormed the hotel with guns. the 14-hour siege ended when somali troops shot the attackers dead. it is about 22 minutes after the hour. now here's a look at the weather for your weekend.

mcdavid, who was also charged in the coverup, pleaded not guilty. according to the indictment in 2001, kelly and mcdavid learned that multiple videos were missing from kelly's collection. worried that the tapes would get out, court records say that kelly, mcdavid and others agreed to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars to victims, witnesses and others to ensure that they would not cooperate with law enforcement. even after getting those tapes back, court documents state that kelly and mcdavid directed people who returned the tapes to take polygraph tests to determine if they had made copies. kelly also paid an alleged victim and her parents to travel to foreign countries to avoid investigators. the new york federal charges kelly faces include racketeering, kidnapping and interstate transportation of victims for illegal sex acts. the three-rammyinner enterpriset included managers, bodyguards and drivers, all of whom

american public needs to be given a chance to weigh in. >> that was representative bennie thompson during a hearing by the house homeland security committee that he chairs on the use of facial recognition technology by the department of homeland security. that technology is increasingly used by law enforcement even as serious questions remain. >> here to discuss the topic is derrick thompson, a writer at the atlantic and host of the crazy genius podcast where he addressed artificial intelligence and its intersection with the justice system in an episode just last month, derrick. welcome. >> good to be here. >> before we get to that, i want to dig into what that is. not all facial recognition is created equal. >> no, that's true. it's reasonable to think about three categories of facial recognition technology. the first category is that which seems to be utterly private. the facial recognition technology that exists on advanced iphones. you look at it, it opens up and
that is within a closed network. >> you and the phone. >> then there's facial recognition technology that you clearly opt into, say the clear program for passing through security lines. >> you pay for it too. >> right. there are, for example, also kiosks for burger joints or other restaurants that have facial recognition technology that you can choose to use. but then there's a third category of facial recognition technology, and that is that that you do not necessarily choose to enter and don't give explicit permission to join. when the city of detroit or i.c.e. or another law enforcement agency is surveilling a group of people and using their faces that they have checked against photo i.d.s without those people's permission or understanding to rout out potential criminals, that is the category experts are concerned about. >> there's a "washington post" report about i.c.e. officials using or requesting that information from three states.
why do we need to care about and the national understanding of that technology isn't. so as a result you have a situation where there isn't a legal national standard for these sort of behaviors, for i.c.e. and other law enforcement agencies, but at the same time they're already progressing. they're using the technology against various people, against undocumented workers, against people who might be criminals walking in a crowd. we don't have any national standard. as a result, the cities and states are having to make up their own minds and balance two different constituencies. do we listen to the law enforcement agencies, the police who are telling us we need these tools, they're helpful, or listen to the public that's saying, whoa, whoa, whoa, wait, we're not ready for this. >> there's a balance somewhere but no one is setting that balance on the national level at least. two u.s. cities have band the use of facial recognition technology by city agencies. does that continue? >> i think it's absolutely going to continue. i think it is extremely important and telling that one technology isies that band
san francisco, the hub, the mecca of modern technology advancement. and i think what you see there, it really is unbelievably ironic. i think what you're seeing there, it isn't ironic that the city that should understand the implications of facial technology the most was the first major city to ban it. i think that should give cities a little pause to say that the more you understand this thing, the more you fear it. >> there's still some glitches in it too. the technology in and of itself isn't perfect. it has civil rights implications. >> yes. severe civil rights implications because lots of different tests of facial recognition technologies have found that they consistently misrepresent or misidentify nonwhite faces. that's a very serious problem when you consider that i.c.e. is looking for undocumented workers who might have come from central america or the city of detroit is using surveillance technology
against a population that has an enormous black population. so i think it's really important to understand that not only do you need laws on the books, you also need third-party validaters to say this technology works, this technology doesn't. let's make sure if we're going to use this tech, it's being used so that it identifies people's faces equally. >> technology ahead of the laws. >> indeed. >> derrick thompson, thanks once again. he was one of america's greatest architects. now the work of frank lloyd wright has earned unique global honors. we'll visit some of the special places he designed, now on a very special list. and if you're heading out the door, don't forget to set your dvr to record "cbs this morning saturday." coming up in our next hour, it's the sport electrifying fans around the world and now in this country. we'll explore the sport of e racing featuring high-performance cars that never need to gas up. plus put on your indiana jones hat as we explore age-old

their value to humanity. >> he's one of america's first great cultural experts. and so this inscription on the world heritage list is really a regnition tt wright made. simple ly put, our buildings, o homes, our landscapes and our cities might not be the same without frank lloyd wright's work. >> in addition to falling water, the other sites to make the list include unity temple in oak park, illinois, designed by wright in 1905 and still in use today. >> it's a beautiful example from his early period of how he could take an industrial material, structural concrete, and render a sacred space with it. >> and two of wright's personal homes, one built in wisconsin using native materials and one in scottsdale, arizona, a structure that seamlessly blends into its desert setting. >> his might be the most personal expressions of his work
because he wasn't setting out to meet the requirements of a client. in fact, as his own homes, they also served as his studios, as the place where he would educate apprentices. >> the other sites include l.a.'s hoyhk house, herbert and katherine jacobs' house, an intentionally low-cost residence built during the great depression. and city's frederick c. roby house. and perhaps wright's most well-known building, new york's revolutionary guggenheim museum, designed by wright in 1943 and finished in 1959, six months after his death. >> when we look at buildings that were built a hundred years ago or even a shorter time, we tend to think of those buildings as maybe less important than they actually are. so this, i think, will help the cause of preserving not only these eight buildings and the west of frank lloyd wright's work, but a lot of other buildings that are part of our
modern cultural heritage. >> simply gorgeous. >> yeah. i want to live there. >> modern and just -- he was so ahead of his time. go on with your bad self, frank lloyd wright. >> all right, there you go, michelle. coming up here, keeping an eye on barry. we'll check in on the storm that is taking aim at part of the gulf coast. for some of you, your local news is next. the rest stick around, you're watching "cbs this morning saturday." x/ #

welcome to "cbs this morning saturday." mhelle miller. coming up in this hour we'll take you for a ride in a whole new kind of racer. these incredible vehicles rival formula 1 cars but never fill up on gasoline. a look at the e-prix taking over part of new york city this weekend. plus we head to rome and go beneath it. that's where these ancient tunnels are open once again, part of an incredible bath complex that was once the health club of its day. >> and later there's no music festival bigger than milwaukee's summerfest. we'll look back at its half century history and hear a
special performance by one of this year's headliners. i hear their name rhymes with miller. who would that be? it's in our saturday session. >> the killers! >> there it is, all ahead. first, our top story this hour. tropical storm barry is getting stronger as it heads for the louisiana gulf coast. barry has maximum sustained winds of 70 miles an hour. it's expected to make landfall as a hurricane later today near morgan city, about 85 miles southwest of new orleans. the slow-moving storm is bringing heavy rain and high winds. several roads are flooded, power is out for tens of thousands of people. trees have been knocked down. dangerous storm surges are possible. david begnaud is in morgan city. david, good morning. what can you tell us? >> reporter: michelle, good morning. since we last saw you at 7:00, we left the hotel which has lost street in morgan city because i
wanted to show you the levee,th morgan city because of this. some white caps on the river this morning. this flows into the gulf of mexico. the flooding you see where the river has swollen beyond its banks, that is not due to anything related to barry. that had already happened. louisiana has been dealing with more than 270 days of flooding on the mississippi river, and so you have swollen bayous and creeks and rivers that predate barry. all right, let's get to barry. it's expected to become a hurricane later today, about lunchtime we're told could be landfall along the louisiana gulf coast. listen, this storm is crawling. it is moving incredibly slow. right before we came on the air, the hurricanes center said barry had strengthened just a little bit, expected to be a category 1 storm when it makes landfall. of the video elements that we have to show you this morning, there's nothing major. there's minor flooding in the coastal areas that you would expect. around the new orleans area. but i was talking to our meteorologist at wwl in new
orleans, a cbs affiliate, and he said, david, because the storm keeps tracking westward, i've actually lowered my rain expectations to 8 to 10 inches. but places like baton rouge, lafayette and morgan city where we are right now could get walloped with 20 inches of rain. jeff, i was talking to the mayor yesterday. he said, day-to-day, thvid, the could get 20 to 30 inches of rain. i don't have enough pumps to get the water out of here. it could be major flooding. that's what they're setting up for here in morgan city. >> david, thank you very much. barry does have new orleans on high alert for potentially dangerous flooding. the city is below sea level and the storm will test flood prevention efforts they put in place following hurricane katrina 14 years ago. the mississippi river is not expected to crest as much as expected, as david just mentioned. we get more now from omar villafranca who is in new orleans. omar, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. we are here on the south shore
of lake pontchartrain. the wind is starting to pick up and we're getting a rain band coming in. some of the major rain bands are staying east in mobile. now, you can see behind me the wind is intermittent. pontchartrain doesn't look too choppy right now. if there's any silver lining, you mentioned it, jeff, it's the fact that they're expecting to -- >> obviously we're having some difficulty there with omar's microphone. i think the good news we heard from him earlier is that in new orleans things look like they are under control, a little better than expected as far as the weather there. >> still with the 60 or 70-mile-an-hour winds, though. >> it really is the rain. as long as the rain isn't dumping the volume, the pumps can handle it. >> right. and that's where they are right now. we'll get more from the experts on this. we bring in meteorologist jeff berardelli. good morning. >> good morning, everyone. so what we are talking about is a system that is far enough away from new orleans so it looks like the heaviest rain will be further away. that also means it's on top of
places like morgan city and eventually into baton rouge, louisiana. notice what's happening right now. things are about to go downhill of the most of the rain has been to the south side of the storm. you'll notice it's now beginning to wrap into the east and north side of the storm and also you'll also notice that as of the 8:00 advisory, the storm has started to lift a little more to the northwest, which means soon it will be making landfall. right now it's about 50 miles away from morgan city. here's a look at your weather headlines. flooding is the main threat, maybe as much as 15 to 20 inches in really the heaviest band. wind gusts every once in a while up to 80 miles an hour. trees down, power outages are possible. maximum storm surge around 3 to 6 feet. this is the official forecast track from the national hurricane center. you can see it weakens to a tropical storm by tomorrow but it moves very slowly. because it's moving so slowly, take a look at all the heavy rain that's going to be dumping into the mississippi river basin. we're talking about some places picking up as much as a foot of rain, maybe some places as high
as 20 in isolated areas. this is just the first significant storm of the season. be careful this weekend, folks. >> our eyes are wide open. thank you, jeff. a place that could use some rain is hawaii. hot, dry and windy conditions in maui could worsen a massive wildfire that's ravaging the island's former sugar cane fields. hawaii's governor has declared maui a disaster area. the fire has burned about 9,000 acres since thursday. about 20% is contained. firefighters are using water engines and helicopter water drops. some airline passengers waited for up to five hours to fly out of the fire zone. the cause of that fire has not been determined. it is about six minutes past the hour. now here's a look at the weather for your weekend.
e-racing takes the thrill of the grand prix and literally electrifies it. up next we'll take you along as the tour takes over part of an american city this weekend. you are watching "cbs this morning saturday." i didn't have to call 911.help. and i didn't have to come get you. because you didn't have another heart attack. not today. you took our conversation about your chronic coronary artery disease to heart. even with a stent procedure, your condition can get worse over time, and keep you at risk of blood clots. so you added xarelto®, to help keep you protected. xarelto®, when taken with low-dose aspirin, is proven to further reduce the risk of blood clots that can cause heart attack,
stroke, or cardiovascular death in people with chronic cad. that's because while aspirin can help, it may not be enough to manage your risk of blood clots. in a clinical trial, almost 96% of people taking xarelto® did not have a cardiovascular event. don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of heart attack, stroke, or cardiovascular death. while taking, a spinal injection increases the risk of blood clots which may cause paralysis- the inability to move. you may bruise more easily, or take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. it may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. get help right away for unexpected bleeding or unusual bruising. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. before starting, tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures and any kidney or liver problems. enjoy every moment-and help protect yourself from an unexpected one, like a cardiovascular event. are you doing enough? ask your doctor if it's time for xarelto®. to learn more about cost and how janssen can help, visit xarelto.com.

including brooklyn, new york, this weekend. it has similar thrills to formula 1 but is missing one important element, gasoline. that's because these are e-racers, high performance cars that run on electric power. >> the unmiss trtakable whir of formula e car is far from a roar on a racetrack. but what formula e lacks in volume, it makes up for in intensity. >> everything -- it's like a huge ballet. >> the men in charge is al hahn dr -- alejandro agag. we first met him in england in 2014. >> here we are, five years later. >> yeah, we're still alive. we're still here. >> think about that. >> i didn't know the cars were going to work. you were there with us at the first-ever test.
cars on the grid on a test to see if the thing was going to even move. here we are five years later in new york and it's probably the fastest growing motor sport in the world. >> many people thought you were going to fail. >> everyone thought we were going to fail. i think only i thought maybe we had a chance. >> formula e races are short, only about 45 minutes, and take place on tight tracks in city centers. speeds can hit 175 miles an hour. contrast that to formula 1, the most popular racing league in the world. these classic combustion engines race on wider, far longer courses and are still more powerful. but jean eric vergne who once drove formula 1 and is formula e's top rated driver says it's not so simple. >> frankly, i'm more scared in the qualifying lap in formula e than i was in formula 1. you know, the track is so narrow, it is a heavy car, very
difficult to brake. the handling is not as good as in f-1 so driving is more difficult and mistakes happen quicker. >> he had nowhere to go. >> reporter: andre lotterer is his teammate. he showed us inside a formula e vehicle. >> the battery takes the engine space so the battery is inside this safety shell. it's pretty impressive. >> reporter: each costs a million dollars and weighs 1500 pounds. more than half that is battery weight. >> you have to look at formula e like we're at the beginning of a new chapter in automobile industry, in racing. >> reporter: in previous seasons drivers had to switch cars because batteries couldn't last the whole race. this year that is no longer the case. battery power has improved dramatically. the logistics of moving those batteries and everything else from city to city is mind boggling. in brooklyn, nearly 700 people have been working nonstop this week to build a track from
scratch. the cars were unpacked on wednesday, testing was friday. racing on saturday and sunday. the whole event will cost formula e between $10 and $15 million. >> we build everything and in four days be dismount everything so it's a huge operation. >> reporter: but is it all worth it? agag said investing in the future and losing money for now is, as his league aims to become not just the number one electric race series but the number one race series, period. it's tricky, though, because both formula 1 and formula e are regulated by the same organization. an older brother and younger sibling battling for attention. >> there's no other way to say it. it's a contentious relationship. has it gotten any better, do you think, or worse? >> i don't have any problem with formula 1. i love formula 1, i think it's great. but as the industry shifts towards electric, formula 1 finds more and more itself without an industry to relate
to. >> so formula 1 goes away? >> i don't know. >> how long does all this take? are we talk about five years from now, 20 years from now? >> i think 10 years from now. >> this was seen when it started as a novelty. is it still a novelty? >> it's not still a novelty to manufacturers. >> travis okulski is the editor of road and track. >> it's interesting to think about because they have been around five years but it's still in its infancy. >> formula 1 has been around since 1950. we have almost 70 years of history with this one sport to develop to become the pinnacle of motor sport. formula e comes in with new technology and it's their first time trying to make an impression. it's going to take time to become the pinnacle of motor sports, sports. >> if it does. >> that's a big if. >> formula e has developed gimmicks people scoff at. a fan boost which lets users of social media give their own
boost. this year attack mode which lets drivers get more power by steering through a special zone. not unlike in the video game mario kart. >> so the future is electric and it's video games? >> the future is electric and it's a combination between real life and video games. combination between real and virtual. that's the future. >> for an american audience watching this weekend, what do you think they'll take away? >> we try to go to the american public and show them electric cars. if you see this race, you're one step closer to buying an electric car. that's why we do it. that's why people come in here and we get more and more people coming here in brooklyn closer to buying an electric car. that's our objective. >> it's so interesting to see these courses in city centers and just built from scratch in whi are used to seeing formula 1 cases often in rural areas. >> i love the virtual gimmick. that got me like -- >> right away. >> yeah. >> think about kids that grow
up. they're on their screen time all the time. this is part of what they live. i don't know if it's a fair comparison. it's like boxing for an older generation to mma. >> and racing leagues now, whether it's formula e or formula 1 are pulling kids from a video game back ground and not just a racing backgrounds. >> i like that story. she stirred the pot as a stand-up comic. now she's doing the same thing at her chain of soup restaurants. up next on "the dish," we'll meet sara polon, also known as supergirl, and hear all about her journey from the comedy club to the kitchen. you're watching "cbs this morning saturday." >> whoa, a double. oh! oh! oh!

career in comedy. when she tired of the grind, she went back home and ended up starting a business. >> recalling her mother's excellent soups she created souper girl. they now have their own stores and a thriving delivery business and a growing list of retail partners including whole foods and costco. sara polon, good morning and welcome to "the dish." >> a fabulous spread. what are we having here? >> not too shabby here. we have a basically summer is on the table. >> it looks like it. >> so we have lentil corn dill salad with fennel and pepper and cucumbers. we have a basil salad with mozzarella. this is gorgeous. this is the main course. this is whole wheat pasta and white beans with a homemade summer tomato sauce. we are we have quinoa.
we have beet gazpacho and for dessert we have our peach crisp topped with vegan ice cream. and of course gauzpacho bloody mary. >> oh, my gosh, the tomatoes are so in season, i just have to say. i read your bio. the stand-up comedian transferring to soup maker, that just had me at hello. what were you thinking? >> i don't know. i think my mother is wondering that as well. no one should ask of their mother what i asked of mine. basically i had veered away from comedy and was a little lost. i wanted to start my own business. at the same time, i was very fortunate to have this aha moment. i read "the aomnivore's dilemma" i was one of those people who went to farmers markets and i thought farmers were cute and it was adorable. i didn't realize the impact of
our food choices on our bodies, on the health of the planet, on our communities, and so i wanted to get involved. i didn't know where to start. a friend of mine said, you know what, your mom makes really good soups. so she and i got into the kitchen. she taught me everything i know about cooking. and we just started cooking. and it grew from there. >> were there things from comedy, the ad libbing or shift on the fly that transferred? there must be things that transferred to the kitchen, right? >> well, to the brand and to the kitchen. first of all, when you're cooking soup, i kind of feel like a mad scientist. i am not a wonderful baker, i learned to. but like with soup, you go to the market, look at what's in your kitchen and just start creating, i don't say spices and have fun and make a mess. it's really fun. and then in the brand i try to infuse humor and approachability, because food can be daunting. food can be intimidating. but when you add a touch of
humor, it becomes fun. >> you even have humor, i would say, i hope, in your mom's title, chief anxiety officer. i think everybody's mother could be that, right? >> she takes that role very seriously. she's supermom, aka chief anxiety officer. if anybody has anything they need somebody to worry about -- >> she'll take care of it. >> yes. being a small business owner, there's plenty of worry with so she takes care of that and i keep on working. >> what makes a good soup? >> soup is more than food. it's memory, it's like a hug from your mom. soup has been given a bit of a bad rep over the past couple of years because a lot of companies put a lot of salt, a lot of additives. but if you didn't find an ingredient in my mother's kitchen, you're not going to find it in our soups. if your grandmother can't pronounce an ingredient, why are you eating it? and so that's the essence of our soups and a well made bowl of
soup is the perfect food. you can get plant-based protein and fiber and hydration and hopefully a ton of flavor with no chemicals or salt or low chemicals or salt. >> but if you couldn't make it 150 years ago, don't make it or eat it today, right, a little bit? >> food is -- i might get destroyed on social media for this, but food is, i think, very objective. you're going to be hard-pressed to find a doctor that says you really shouldn't be eating a lot of plant-based protein and fiber and vegetables, you should really stay away from that and go for the processed food. why do we have this notion of indulging in processed food, ice cream and pizza. indulge in this and you'll feel great. >> speaking of indulging, ifwitg "the that be?
>> so i think i have -- i should say alice waters, because she founded like -- >> we went to her restaurant in san francisco. >> really? >> she's amazing. but i kind of want to say madonna. >> why not? >> have them both! >> sara polon, thank you so much. >> thank you. this is a blast, guys. >> for more on sara and "the dish" head to our website at cbsthismorning.com. it was the health club of ancient times featuring baths, gyms and even swimming pools. now much more of this incredible complex in the city of rome is open to visitors for the first time in centuries. we'll take a tour just ahead. and next week on "cbs this morning saturday," we'll mark the golden anniversary of one of the country's greatest achievements, the 1969 moon landing. we'll have a look at the past, present and future of space travel. you're watching "cbs this morning saturday."
former first lady michelle obama is discussing the hurtful and racist stereotypes that she confronted during her time in the white house and when he was on the campaign trail. the best-selling author, this book is selling close to 12 million copies, sat down with me for an exclusive wide-ranging interview at the essence festival in new orleans on saturday night. now, the expos celebrates black music and culture. mrs. obama talked about how both republicans and democrats targeted her for being a powerful black woman, an experience that she also crane cul -- chronicles in her popular memoir "becoming." >> i know there are a lot of young kids out there who see me and barack now, they see us as the former first, they see us walking out of the white house,
but they don't remember houcw my punches we took to get there. now i'm michelle obama and beloved, but for a minute there i was an angry black woman who was emasculating her husband, who was somebody to be feared, because that was part of the political game was that as i got more popular and started being more of an asset to my husband, it was interesting that that's when people of all sides, and i stop to say people from all sides, democrats and republicans, tried to take me out by the knees. but the reason i share that story is because i want people to, especially young people, to know that we all go through those moments where people try to define us before we have an opportunity to define ourselves what i had to do when i went into the white house as first lady.

in the tunnels, they projected video artwork dreamed up by a contemporary artist as a way to evoke feelings and help visitors understand the past. down here was where the work happened, with slaves moving wood and lighting fires to heat the pool and saunas above for the up to 8,000 daily guests. >> i think that the technology inside the baths is very, very complicated and very rare. >> reporter: francesco is the superintendent of archaeology in rome, no small job. he's taken us deep into the once forgotten palace where they introduced virtual reality to help recreate the past. then after rome's subway excavation turned up so many artifacts, he turned a metro station into a museum. and now this.

first excavated in the 1920s. each summer rome's opera moves outside here, mixing art and archaeology above ground too with the baths providing a magnificent backdrop, millenia in the making. for "cbs this morning saturday," seth doane, rome. >> i can't wait. >> count me in. >> let's go back to rome, it's that simple. time now for a check of the weather for your weekend. their debut album went multi platinum and earned five grammy
