heenan reports. the north koreans are doing their best to keep everyone on edge. >> catherine: this is the most powerful missile in north korea's arsenal. at least on paper. the musu=dan was first unveiled at a military parade three years ago and has never been tested. now two of them have been moved to launch sites on the east coast. >> north korea may be making preparations to launch a missile. we are monitoring this situation closely and we would not be surprised to see them take such an action. >> catherine: north korea has been the subject of increasingly frequent meetings in the situation room. >> i think they are watching very carefully the situation. i think they are watching if there are military maneuvers or a higher level of military alert on >> the ground in rhetoric. >> catherine: today north korean tv broadcast scenes of patriotic rallies and warned foreign embassies that it will be quote "unable to after april 10th. the wild card is north korea's young leader. >> you see he's out in photos almost every day with military units. that was unlike his father who was more reclusive. so that's

distances i mention here... are estimates at best. now, the north has several short range missiles. one can fly about 186 miles and another a little 300 miles. these two weapons can reach nearly all of south korea. the north also has an operational missle with a range of about 800 miles, that means it could reach most of japan. beyond that the north has tested a ballistic missle that is believed to have a range of 1500 miles and they have another operational missle with a range of 1800 miles. both of these weapons, in theory, could reach guam, which is a u.s. territory. that leaves one long range ballistic missle in the north's arsenal. the question becomes could that missle reach the u.s. well in 2006, north korea test fired a taepodong2 missle which failed about 30
seconds after launch but it's believed an operational version of this weapon could travel more than 4 thousand miles. at that distance, north korea could, in theory, target the states of hawaii and alaska as well as western canada. but that missle is not believed to be able to reach the mainland united states. here in the bay area, san francisco is about 55 hundred miles away f rom north korea. hopefully, well out of range. in the newsroom, charles clifford kron 4 news. >> jacqueline: we can see that this tale of this offshore will sweep through northern california tonight. possibly towards the north bay. take a look at futurecast north bay. with

down all the numbers. and explains what they mean. a disappointing jobs report for march. only 88,000 jobs created and the unemployment rate fell, it did fall, to 7.6%, but that's because so many people dropped out of the labor market. a half a million people just gave up looking, showing there was some weakness in the labor market in the month. when you look at the trend, also, repeating what we saw last year. in 2012 strength in the beginning of the year and it faded into the spring. again, strength at the beginning of the year, fading a little bit into the spring, making some people wonder if first quarter economic growth is going to be as strong as they wanted. where were the jobs? health care: we continue to see growth in healthcare jobs, another 23,000 there. we also saw some jobs growth in leisure and hospitality but not as many as we have been seeing. and we saw jobs lost in retail. 24,000 jobs lost in retail. some economists are speculating because of the loss of the payroll tax cut holiday, a little added tax
burden for many pay checks. that's actually hurting the retail stocks. and finally we saw over all, when you look at the private sector vs the public sector, some 7000 private sector jobs lost. a lot of people saying those are directly related to postal service job cuts. i'm christine romans today a federal judge ruled that the government 'must' make the most common morning-after pill available over the counter to women of all ages. right now. girls under 17 now need a prescription. but that's about to change. the judge says there's no reason not to make the safe and effective drug available to all ages. birth control advocacy groups are happy.saying this may help bring down teen pregnancy rates. however - social conservatives argue the ruling could put the health of young girls at risk. since it eliminates the involvement of parents and medical professionals. there's still a chance the ruling will be appealed. if not - the drug could be available to all ages in about a month.
