7:01 am
♪♪ ♪♪ and this magnificent estate we're calling home is named "el fureidis," or "tropical paradise." and it truly is that. it's cozy by today's mega-mansion standards: a mere 10,000 square feet, situated on ten acres, surrounded by with lush gardens and towering palms, all in the shadow of the santa ynez mountains. a century ago, when this home was built, life was simpler. no laptops, smart phones, or internet. now, all that tech tracks our every move and monitors every heartbeat. a mixed blessing, to be sure, but, as david pogue discovers,
7:02 am
more and more of us see all this high tech as highly convenient. >> fitness trackers have come a long way since they just counted steps. >> we can pick up people's illness at or before symptoms, from a simple smartwatch. we're 98% accurate in detecting atrial fibrillation 99% accurate in detecting sinus rhythm. >> has this feature saved any lives? >> almost every day. >> later on "sunday morning:" the new world of disease detection, on your wrist. >> pauley: this is home to many high-profile people, looking to live the quiet life in style. lee cowan catches up with one of the locals: singer/songwriter kenny loggins. >> what musician could write a song for a gopher dance, and still keep his credibility?

i joined the district attorney's office to pursue justice for everyone. but like so many of my colleagues, i resigned in protest because chesa boudin interfered in every single case and failed to do his job. the office is absolutely in disarray right now. chesa dissolved my unit prosecuting car break-ins. now criminals flock to san francisco because there are no consequences. we can't wait. recall chesa boudin now.
7:07 am
out-of-state corporations wrote an online sports webetting plan they call "solutions for the homeless". really? the corporations take 90 percent of the profits. and using loopholes they wrote, they'd take even more. the corporations' own promotional costs, like free bets, taken from the homeless funds. and they'd get a refund on their $100 million license fee, taken from homeless funds, too. these guys didn't write a plan for the homeless. they wrote it for themselves.

ba el is is estled in the oasis of tranquility and class. designed by famed architect bertram goodhue for new york real estate tycoon james waldron gillespie, the home was completed in 1906. gillespie fell in love with the 10-acre property because the climate reminded him of the mediterranean sea. the mediterranean inspired the design, too, with roman, middle eastern and european influences all around. lights with swarovski crystals
7:09 am
are recent additions, alongside custom furniture replicating originals seen in buckingham palace. outside, the lush landscape features more than 100 different types of trees, including one of montecito's largest fig trees. a perfect setting, no doubt, for the silver screen-- as al pacino's florida mansion in the 1983 gangster film, "scarface." other familiar faces-- albert einstein, winston churchill and john f. kennedy-- have all paid visits to el fureidis. and this morning, so do we. it's called the conversation room. guests chatted here, while it's rumored, the original owner listened in from a secret passage. of course, these days, david pogue tells us, we've got plenty of devices already doing
7:10 am
just that. >> when you were growing up, your idea of a medical data-collection device was probably, this. or possibly that. but these days, health trackers are a lot more sophisticated. and a lot more wearable. these smartwatches from companies like fitbit and apple are teeming with tiny sensors that display their findings on your smartphone. so, this looks like a list of all of the things that the watch can detect-- >> exactly. >> low heart rate, high heart rate, irregular heart-- >> right, and-- >> --blood oxygen-- >> blood oxygen, walking steadiness, headphone notifications, noise notifications, and even hand washing, which we can detect. >> and, of course, your pulse rate. >> 94. >> 94. >> that's high, isn't it? >> it's on the higher side. so, either you haven't drank enough water, or you might be really stressed. >> i might be on national television, for example. >> and that could be a reason. >> sumbul desai is a physician,
7:11 am
and vice president of health at apple. at the company's california headquarters, she demonstrated how an apple watch can warn you about dangerous sound levels-- >> this is flight 37, now leaving for san francisco! >> there you go. >> there it is! --measure your cardio fitness... >> yours is 28.6. and it is a little below average. >> clearly i've been very laz-- busy. busy. >> and even perform an electrocardiogram. >> you're going to put your finger on that digital crown. >> that's real, right now? >> that is real-- of what your heart rhythm is doing. and if you want to choose to share this with your doctor, you can hit "export to pdf." >> but the most life-changing talent of modern smartwatches is brand-new: they can give you early warning of medical problems. for example, if you're sleeping more or sleeping less than you used to, if your heart rate is at a different baseline heart rate than it was? >> those are early signs of things that may be going on. >> without my having to check
7:12 am
anything, it will actually tell tell me if it discovers something alarming? >> another one is walking steadiness, which is, if we notice changes in your gait we can actually give you an early notification where you can do something about it. >> then there's atrial fibrillation, when your heart quivers instead of beating, as many as six million americans have it. it often leads to stroke. trouble is, the episodes are intermittent, so a doctor might miss it at your checkup. but the watch? >> the watch is with you all the time. our watch can detect if your-- if your heart is beating out of rhythm, and will surface up a notification. >> has this feature saved any lives? >> almost every day. their physicians are actually telling them, "i'm so glad you showed up when you did, because this really could've ended much differently." >> you don't drive your car around without a dashboard. yet, here we are, as people. we're more important than cars, but we're running around without any sensors, most people.
7:13 am
and we should be wearing these things, in my opinion, because they can alert you to early things. >> stanford school of medicine professor michael snyder is conducting several studies to see how far wearables can go in detecting disease. what's the complete list of conditions that a smartwatch might be able to one day detect? >> infectious disease, anemia, even type ii diabetes. and then in the future, for sure, heart conditions. we're working to see if we can detect cancer right now. >> snyder got a taste of his own smartwatch medicine last month. on the day of a cross-country flight, he felt congested. his own research app alerted him of sudden changes in his breathing and heart rates. >> so i did a covid test, and it turns out i was negative. so i went ahead and got on the plane. >> big mistake. he did have covid. >> i listened to my covid tests, and i should've listened my smartwatch. >> and sure enough: in a fitbit
7:14 am
study involving 100,000 people, those metabolic changes predicted covid three days before any symptoms appeared. now, at the moment, snyder's app can't tell what is causing your vital signs to go screwy. >> right now, we can't tell the difference between certain kinds of stressors like workplace stress and mental stress vs. a covid. but in the future, we will. >> i am here to say that these data are great. people who self-track are more likely to be connected to other people. and when they're connected to other people, they're more likely to be happier. >> university of cambridge professor gina neff is the author of a book about self-tracking. overall, she's a fan, but she does worry about who gets to see our medical data. >> imagine devices that are being used in warehouses, being used to determine if someone is moving fast enough. imagine devices that are-- that you sign up for, to help
7:15 am
train you to be a safer driver, but it's instead used to raise your insurance premiums. these are scenarios that are-- that are used in companies today. >> at least apple and fitbit say that they can't see your data. >> i want to be completely clear that apple does not have access to any health information for a user. it is on-device, encrypted, and in the user's control. >> you don't have some engineer that could look up david pogue's blood oxygen level? >> absolutely not. >> for stanford's michael snyder, the promise of disease detection on your wrist easil is a goal well worth pursuing. >> 3.8 billion people on the planet have a smartphone, but if you can pair that with a $50 smartwatch, you'd have a health monitoring system for 3.8 billion people. i think we're just at the tip of the iceberg on what's possible.
7:16 am
7:17 am
>> pauley: the old santa barbara mission was founded by spanish franciscans in 1786, and it's just one of the picturesque sights, that help put santa barbara on the map. ( bells ringing ) the bells have been ringingathen two centuries, but the first residents of this area date back thousands of years, to the chumash people. the town was named by the spanish explorer, sebastian vizcaino, in 1602, for saint barbara, the third-century christian martyr.
7:18 am
when spanish settlers arrived in the 18th century, they built, along with the chamush "el presidio," a fort to protect the california coast from foreign invasion. the nearby mission was built soon after, setting a spanish architectural-style that endures to this day. when an earthquake nearly destroyed the mission, and much of the city, in 1925 local visionaries insured that santa barbara would rebuild and rebound in the same design. and did it ever. soon, this oceanfront jewel two hours from los angeles, became known as "hollywood to the north." silent film pioneer charlie chaplin built california's first major movie studio here, flying "a" studios, producing hundreds of movies.
7:19 am
in the coming years, this once-sleepy seaside town became a place for folks from all over to escfo childhood and retiremen he e today, with its outdoor lifestyle, fresh seafood, and beautiful homes, santa barbara is the epitome of the california dream.
7:20 am
okay, snacks and popcorn are gonna be expensive. let's just accept that. going to the movies can be a lot for young homeowners turning into their parents. bathrooms -- even if you don't have to go, you should try. we all know where the bathroom is and how to us it, okay? you know, the stevensons told me they saved money bundling their boat insurance with progressive. no one knows who those people are. -it can be painful. -hand me your coats. there's an extra seat right here. no, no, no, no, no. we don't need a coat wrangler. progressive can't save you from becoming your parents, but we can save you money when you bundle home, auto, and more with us. no one who made the movie is here. from prom dresses when yo to workoutse, auto, and more with us. and new adventures you hope the more you give the less they'll miss. but even if your teen was vaccinated against meningitis in the past they may be missing vaccination for meningitis b. although uncommon, up to 1 in 5 survivors of meningitis will have long term consequences. now as you're thinking about all the vaccines your teen might need make sure you ask your doctor if your teen is missing meningitis b vaccination.
7:21 am
>> pauley: the beach is a way of life to the people of santa barbara. seth doane takes us to wales, where a talented artist is turning sand and stone into fascinating, if fleeting, works >> the windswein wal in the itk: rocks, and a receding tide. >> the low tide kind of reveals this canvas, in a way. do you know what you're going to do before you hit the beach? >> i haven't drawn it out or anything, and i've just got an idea, and it can change as i work. >> land artist jon foreman finds inspiration in what's already there. >> what i love about stone is it's shapeable. when you use enough of them, you can create a form.
7:22 am
>> those forms can be mesmerizing. he plays with perspective, patterns... >> this beach has these beautiful colors, purples and blues and violets. >> a lot of people don't believe it's real. a lot of people ask if i paint the stones, or if i buy them in and carry them all in. could you imagine me carrying all these from my car? >> sometimes he uses the sand itself, which allows him to work on a much bigger scale, raking and combing it into spectacular designs. what was your first introduction to land art as a practice, as an art? >> it wahebablthe most prolific, most well-known land artist in the world, i'd say. >> about 20 years ago, cbs "sunday morning" profiled the pioneering english sculptor. >> i need to touch, i need to feel things to understand them.
7:23 am
>> who's medium ranged from twigs and snow, to the most delicate: ice. >> it's a tough thing to work with the land because, you know, the next second, the next day, is not going to be there. >> has land art evolved? >> i think it has. yeah, partially because of social media, because it's so easy to share your work, and that's the kind of the best way with land art, because it's kind of immediate. and you have time limits you know, because of weather and tide. >> forman sells prints, and occasionally does commissions, this one for burberry. he admits "land art" is not the most lucrative, but social media has allowed him to share his work with people around the world. >> it's difficult because social media is the opposite to where i am, in a way. you know, you scroll past it and then, that's it, you've seen it. that's it. you know, you spend, you know, three or four seconds looking at it. that's all, you know. >> you're like, come on, that
7:24 am
took me hours! >> yeah, yeah, i mean, that's the way social media is. >> i've seen always seen his work online, facebook, instagram, and it's just absolutely phenomenal to see an artist use all the local materials, local space, and just create something so just visually stunning. >> huw owen was passing by at just the right moment. >> it's so beautiful, but it will be washed away. >> i mean, it's kind of poetic, really, isn't it? i really enjoy the fact that's it's only here for a short amount of time-- like we are, essentially. >> you have how many minutes to enjoy this piece of art? >> 20, maybe, if we're lucky. >> does a little bit of you feel frustrated or defeated or, like, "oh, i really liked that one?" >> not at all. not at all. that's what makes it special, is that it's short-lived. that moment when the sea hits it, it's a special moment, you know, and that's when it gets destroyed. that's the last second that it
7:25 am
exists. oh! you're doing it wrong, man. what's wrong with action figures? nothing. capital one shopping instantly searches for available coupon codes and automatically applies them. whoa! i look good in miniature. capital one shopping. (in s.l.j. voice) what's in your wallet? what could one strand of mrna do? it could change the future of medicine. it could change the lives of millions. see what mrna could do.
7:26 am
moderna this changes everything. >> pauley: with a gilded, hand-painted depiction of alexander the great, and solid brass doors, the dining room at "el fureidis" spares no design detail. but small can be beautiful, too, as susan spencer will be showing us throughout the morning. >> ah. >> oh, yeah. see, that clamps on very nicely. we're cruising, now.
7:27 am
>> give emily johnson a few cans and she'll do a great opening act. there we go. you spend a lot of time thinking about can openers >> believe it or not, i do. >> her uncanny knowledge of all things can opener comes from her job as senior editor at the food publication, "epicurious," where she's tested dozens of them. what does testing day look like? >> it looks like me surrounded by an obscene number of can openers. >> and you just sit there and open cans? >> yeah. cans and cans of chickpeas, white beans -- >> pauley: doesn't matter what. >> cranking, cranking, cranking, cranking. >> this is one that you rather like. >> yeah, this is my favorite. >> after all that cranking she has come to love the classic design, with the little saw-toothed gear. she gets almost philosophical about it. can you envision a kitchen without a can opener? >> no. i can't. the can opener is delightfully
7:28 am
analog. it is a single-use item that people can't get out of owning. >> americans have owned can openers for more than a century. the design evolving ever since the original model in 1858. >> i think the most interesting part of the can opener's history is that it was not invented until around 50 years after the invention of actual canning. >> wait a minute. what? >> cans were so thick, lik 3/16-inch sometimes. people had to use a hammer and chisel to-- >> literally? >> yes. >> i'm surprised they just didn't give up on the cans completely. >> i know. >> pauley: if they'd tried, johnson might if they'd tried, johnson might have told them to-- well-- can it! >> you can take these foods that will last forever in your pantry and make a whole meal out of them. >> not without a can opener, you can't. >> yeah, exactly. you need a can opener to get there.
7:29 am
7:30 am
i'm dan o'dowd and i approved this message. tesla's full self- driving technology. the washington post reported on "owners of teslas fighting contr "i'm trying..." watch this tesla "slam into a bike lane bollard..." "oh [bleeped f***]" this one "fails to stop for a pedestrian in a crosswalk." "experts see deep flaws." "that was the worst thing i've ever seen in my life." to stop tesla's full self-driving software... vote dan o'dowd for u.s. senate.
7:31 am
>> it's "a sunday morning by design." from santa barbara, here again is jane pauley. >> pauley: this is lotusland, one of the most famous public gardens in the world. kelefa sanneh has a story about gardening that's virtually art. >> hi, it's me! >> a lot of their life has been spent in front of this wall, whether it's putting on little plays, or just laying underneath it and reading a book or playing a game. so they've kind of grown with the wall. >> seven years ago, stephanie
7:32 am
joshi decided the family room of her new york city townhouse wasn't quite wild enough. you decided to put a jungle on your wall. >> yes. >> why? >> kind of to bring outside in. >> plant walls are living art. >> this isn't going to replace a farm, but it could replace a photograph or a painting? >> absolutely. >> stacy colman owns plant wall design. her company built and maintains joshi's wall. >> she brought nature in, and now it's-- it's here to stay. >> having plants growing out of the walls seems to violate the laws of both gravity and nature. >> where is the dirt? >> we clean the soil off the roots of the plant. and we plant the plant in between the two growing mediums. the back is where the irrigation goes. >> this particular hydroponic system, which has absorbent, felt-like material in front of and behind each plant, is patented in europe by the so-called father of green walls, patrick blanc.
7:33 am
plant wall design holds the united states' patent. behind the growing medium is that where all the roots of these different plants would be connected? >> yes, exactly. you would never do this, but if you took the front layer off, you would basically see this gigantic, complicated web of roots. >> when some of these plants start getting really big, is the growing medium strong enough to support them? could they just tip over and fall off? >> we've never had that happen. sometimes we think of plants as being very heavy. but what's heavy is the soil. >> this technique was developed in the '90s, but coleman says, today, plant walls are more popular than ever. >> it is so exciting. in the last year and a half, corporations have sort of twigged on the idea that it's healthy and it's going to bring employees back in because when they look up from their desk, they're going to see essentially a forest in front of them.
7:34 am
>> stacy coleman says green walls don't just look good. >> they regulate humidity. they attenuate sound. because of the density of the plants per square foot, they release oxygen into the air. and it's a carbon reducer. >> of course, a green wall costs more than a potted plant. stephanie joshi's 8x13-foot wall cost $18,000 to install. and the wall's maintenance, supplied by coleman's company, runs about $400 per month. >> i do not have a green thumb. and they said, no, we'll do everything. we'll come in once a month. we'll trim it up. the plant wall waters itself. i just get to sit back and enjoy it. >> pauley: once again, we're going for the green. martha teichner has the story of a very different sort of garden that towers above the rest.
7:35 am
>> what is it glowing in the dark at an office building? an art installation? no. those are rotisserie lettuce plants, going around and around inside. it's a vertical farm in the middle of downtown jackson, wyoming. jackson has a four-month growing season, and so we really wanted to extend that. what we had was this plot of land. it was 30 feet wide by 150 feet long. >> that's not very big for a farm! >> architect nona yehia is one of the founders of vertical harvest, which opened in 2016. >> so, we decided, well, what if we go up? could we make more food? >> this little tenth-of-an-acre plot produces 100,000 pounds of produce a year. and not just lettuce. >> there's snow outside still on the mountain, and we're still producing tomatoes for our community. all kinds of microgreens. this is our edible flower program. this is kind of our willy wonka part of the tour.
7:36 am
you never know what you're going to get. >> mmmm! those are really good. >> peppery, right? >> ooh, i like those! vertical farming is possible, because l.e.d. lighting has gotten cheaper and more efficient. >> the plants need very little water. they don't live in soil. they're fed solutions of nutrients, but practically no pesticides. >> what is the potential for vertical farms? >> i think they can achieve 100% food coverage for urban populations. >> in 2010, when now-retired columbia university professor dickson despommier wrote this book and coined the phrase, vertical farms were all but non-existent. by 2026, vertical farming is expected to be a $10 billion a year industry worldwide. can vertical farms answer the need in food deserts?
7:37 am
>> oh, yes, absolutely. i mean, if there's no vertical farm there, put one there. >> vertical harvest has just broken ground on a much larger facility near portland, maine, the first of ten in the planning stages for cities around the country. >> we're never going to replace traditional agriculture, but we sure can innovate to supplement it. and then back to the idea of what "local" means-- from farm to fork, we deliver our product within 24 hours. >> so, instead of being trucked a thousand miles or so from mexico or california, in jackson, wyoming, produce takes a two-mile van ride to whole foods, where it gets pride of place. vertical harvest has also redefined jackson's notion of who can be a farmer. 19 of its 43 employees have mental or physical disabilities.
7:38 am
>> i found my dream job. >> meet tim mclaurin, here with this proud dad. >> we are champions here at the warehouse. >> tim's dad has watched his son thrive at vertical harvest. why was it important for you to have this job? it was so that i could feel appreciated. >> amanda mcfarlane suffered a brain injury. >> vertical harvest is like a family. >> here, a new kind of family farm-- feeding a community. who are positive for acetylcholine receptor antibodies, it may feel like the world is moving without you. but the picture is changing, with vyvgart. in a clinical trial, participants achieved improved daily abilities with vyvgart added to their current treatment. and vyvgart helped clinical trial participants achieve reduced muscle weakness.
7:39 am
vyvgart may increase the risk of infection. in a clinical study, the most common infections were urinary tract and respiratory tract infections. tell your doctor if you have a history of infections or if you have symptoms of an infection. vyvgart can cause allergic reactions. the most common side effects include respiratory tract infection, headache, and urinary tract infection. picture your life in motion with vyvgart. a treatment designed using a fragment of an antibody. ask your neurologist if vyvgart could be right for you.

>> pauley: it's believed the very first surfboards date back to peru some 5,000 years ago. as tracy smith tells us, surfboard design as come a long way. ♪♪ ♪♪ nope, we're not in kansas anymore. surfing off the california coast is as popular as it's ever been, from the party wave riders at malibu, to the folks chillin' at dohehy, where you can sit for hours in the lineup just waiting for that perfect wave. and for that, you need the right board.
7:42 am
this one is big and wide and made out of foam. it's perfect for little waves like these. in fact, just about anyone could ride it. but in surfing, it wasn't always that way. surfing was once a sport reserved for hawaiian royalty, who rode the waves on boards of solid wood that were long, narrow, and majestically heavy. >> it's 140 pounds. >> 140 pounds? so how did they even-- >> but-- >> get it out to the beach? >> if you're royalty, they carry it for you. >> patti paniccia used to surf for a living: one of the few female pro surfers back in the 1970s, when the surfing world was mostly a boys club. here she was at a contest in hawaii, cranking a perfect bottom turn on a big wave, and-- well she had to be a good swimmer, too. >> this board would be about the
7:43 am
1940s. >> today, she's a trustee of the surfing heritage and culture center in san clemente. >> it's got a little shape, a little more shape than the-- than the older ones, right? >> yes, it does. >> and this looks like it's heavy, too. >> oh, it's not as heavy. i think this is about 55 pounds. >> still. >> yeah. >> by the late '50s, boards got shorter, and lighter, and surfing had taken its place in the popular culture. ♪♪ ♪♪ surfboard maker hobie alter-- who started making boards with lightweight balsa wood-- switched to polyurethane foam, and helped take the sport to the next level. hobie's dana point store is still thriving, and his namesake, hobie surfboards, are still made the old-school way. shaper gary larson starts with a blank piece of foam and custom-carves it for a surfer's specific needs. he'll angle the sides-- or rails-- to help a board stay put on a steep wave face, sharpen the nose for high performance
7:44 am
turns, or carve a wider tail for stability. >> so, this is redwood. these are stringers. >> some boards have thin strips of wood-- called stringers-- running down the middle for added stiffness and style: this model runs around $1,800. but each surfboard is different. >> i've had boards that i've tried to duplicate for myself, and each board has its own characteristics. >> it's like snowflakes? no two are alike when they're-- >> i agree. >> --hand-shaped? >> yeah, it's a good analogy. >> don't get me wrong-- you can buy a machine-made board, too, like the one i'm paddling here: they're often cheaper and easier to ride. but they'll never have that certain something that a shaper puts into a board when they're making one just for you. i'm going to ask you a hippie-dippy question, though. do these boards speak to you? >> that's a common question. yeah, i guess i do feel like there's a little more soul in a hand-shaped board.
7:45 am
♪♪ ♪♪ >> of course, noatte a rfboard's design, it's only good as the surfer, and that day. every one of those is different, too.
