7:14 am
they said the crowds in it were too white. polls show clinton's biggest struggle is with young voters. >> i don't think there is a woman more confident than hillary clinton. >> reporter: so she hit iowa city with singer demi lavoto and campaigned with katy perry and clinton visit two college campuses on thursday including this college where trey logan got a selfie and plans to go door-to-for for her in his dorm. why do you think so many here in iowa college students are a big fan of hillary clinton? >> i think they see eye-to-eye with him but some people aren't as realistic as others. >> reporter: part of the problem, the clinton camp argues, is that iowa democrats are looking for the same kind of thrill they got in 2008 when barack obama swept in and stole their hearts.
7:15 am
closest thing to a fresh face this time around. >> all right, nancy. very well said. thank you. >> we believe that 74 can be a fresh face all time. >> absolutely. we believe that absolutely and how. the motion picture academy is planning what it calls dramatic steps to increase the diversity of oscar nominees and may be announced next week after backlash over this week's nominee and changes could include best picture nominees and actor mayhave use it or lose it voting. kevin frazier is here with the latest on this ongoing story. >> reporter: you remember that it was jada pinkett-smith's facebook post on monday that jump-started this conversation on diversity and the fact she said she doesn't plan on attending or watching the academy awards. now with her husband will smith joining in on the boycott, it has put new pressures on actors
7:16 am

7:17 am
is something about inclusion that is not happening in the hollywood community is a huge deal. >> reporter: the academy has been handing out oscars since 1929 and in all of that time, it has only given 15 of them to black actors. a 2013 study puts academy membership at 93% white. the controversy has sparked conversation and in the acting community, including oscar nominated members of the motion picture academy. >> i think if you look at the statistic that came out the makeup of the academy, i think is very telling. i have a lot of sympathy for it to be honest with you. i ask about it quite a bit. >> the problem is not with the oscars. the problem is with the hollywood movie making system. >> reporter: the spotlight on diversity is expected to continue through the oscar ceremony itself with outspoken comedian chris rock as host. >> and let's be clear. chris rock is not the kind person who is known for holding
7:18 am
he is a culturealealeal critic at his best so we expect him to shine a light on this issue. >> reporter: jada said this isn't about her husband and will smith didn't get a nomination for his work in "concussion." she said this is an industry-wide problem. >> she started it and she is giving people a lot to think about. thank you, kevin.

>> at denver, two-day rental of a car costs you about $270 when you layer on taxes and fees and parking at your hotel, versus if you're on uberx and you do a round trip to your hotel, it will cost you about $85. this is not an apples to apples comparison unless you're going to that hotel and staying. that might be the case if it's a conference. if you have many stops along the way, these numbers, obviously, could look very, very different if you're in an uber on and off throughout day. >> we had a story on the news this week, that millennials are not getting their driver's license in the numbers they used to. is that affecting the rental car sales? not enough young people to representative the cars. >> that study you're talking about looked at 20 to 24. generally you need to be 25 years old to rent a car so it's not directly affecting the rental car companies. interestingly, zip car allows you to rent a car under the age of 25 and as young as 18 if

[ screaming ] come on in pop pop. happy birthday. i just had a heart attack... and now i have a choice. for her. for them. and him. a choice to take brilinta. a prescription for people who've been hospitalized for a heart attack. i take brilinta with a baby aspirin more than 100 mg. as it affects how well it works. it's such an important thing to do to help protect against another heart attack. brilinta worked better than plavix. and even reduced the chances of dying from another one. don't stop taking brilinta without talking to doctor. since stopping it too soon increases your risk of clots in your stent, heart attack, stroke, and even death. brilinta may cause bruising or bleeding more easily or serious, sometimes fatal bleeding. don't take brilinta if you have bleeding, like stomach ulcers. a history of bleeding in the brain, or severe liver problems. tell your doctor about bleeding,
7:50 am
any planned surgery and all medicines you take. i will take brilinta today. tomorrow. and every day for as long as my doctor tells me. don't miss a day of brilinta. hello, nice to meet you. melda. i'm john. we invited you here today to get your honest opinion about this new car. to keep things unbiased, we removed all the badging and logos. so, what do you think it is? i would say lexus. maybe acura. feels like a bmw. let's look at the interior. reminds me of the inside of my friend's lexus. so, this car supports apple carplay siri, open maps. nice. wow. she gets me. someone really took their time laying this out. yeah. this car also has teen driver technology. it even mutes the radio until the seatbelts are buckled. wow. my husband could use that. i'm very curious what it is. what price range would you put this car in? fifty to sixty-five. the eighty-thousand dollar bracket. well, what if i told you this is the 2016 chevy malibu? this is a malibu?

7:58 am
what the target is. the downside of that is that everybody has been watching russians, the chinese, and they know how much the u.s. military depends on space and they know that if you take out american satellites, you will cripple american military power. >> so they are trying to do it? >> they are trying to develop the means to do it. >> yeah. >> this is so brilliant. this is the future of war fare is space and there have been people like done rumsfeld talking about this. >> what is also fascinating a great correspondent who has been covering this beat a while knows the pentagon up one side and down the other. said it's a place that has great access. much more you have at the white house and other places. you would know that. david is such a great correspondent. this is part of, as you know, a series i'm doing about how great

8:14 am
type of guy that was if football fell through he wouldn't know what the heck he was going to do. he wants to change the world for the better. so i think football is a platform he has been given. >> reporter: a platform for a mission that now reaches far beyond the gridiron to east africa. long wanted boyer to work with his nonprofit group water boys after visiting tanzania in 2012 long found the organization to build desperately clean water wells in the region. not really the kind of thing that tends to get an nfl player in the headlines. >> what makes that life day-to-day so tough there is the lack of clean water. there is a lot of people who aren't thinking about east africa but there are a lot of people that when they hear about a hero like nate boyer, their mind says whatever this guy is interested in, i'm interested in, because nate vouches for it. >> good luck today, brother. >> that service, we have given to our country, more than anything, we end up serving those people in the third world and for me, this was a way to

different manner, you know, without picking up a gun. >> reporter: to raise money for water boys, boyer is climbing africa's highest peak, mt. kilimanjaro along with former veteran blake watson who lost his leg in an ied explosion in afghanistan. at a recent rams game, the two got a standing ovation for their mission work. you air green beret, a pro football player and now want to climb mt. kilimanjaro? >> i want to keep pushing the limits and see how far i can go. at the end of the day i failed technically as an nfl player. if i don't always reach a pin pinnacle or reach that shining star it's okay with me as long as there is good reason and good coming out of it for others and most important to me because that makes me feel good. you look so much bigger in pads! >> reporter: but make no mistake, boyer doesn't give up
8:16 am
are your football dreams over? >> no. my football dreams probably never be over. i'm still snapping and working out. i'm not exactly as young as the average undrafted free agent, but it doesn't mean i don't have as big of a heart. >> reporter: it certainly is in the right place. for "cbs this morning," adriana diaz, st. louis. >> big heart, indeed. >> looks like an interesting guy. >> cheer him on, nate boyer. >> we are counting down to super bowl 50 on cbs. jim nantz and phil simms will bring you all of the action from santa clara, california o sunday! february 7th. right before the game, watch gayle's interview with president obama and first lady michelle obama that will be live from the white house. that is all here on cbs. >> i can't wait! i can't wait.

8:26 am
mercury is the fastest planet in the solar system. as mercury bypasses and swings by the edge is appears to be backwards. let's say you're in a car in the fast lane and overtake a car in the slow lane and you look at the car. it seems to be backwards. it's an illusion. >> our chris licht cam didn't work and twist went down and some people didn't get the date they were expecting. stuff seems to go wrong. how do you explain that? >> stuff goes wrong all the time! what can i say? >> my answer too! >> we remember it during the mercury retrograte and said, i knew it all the time! but things happen like that all the time. you pick up the phone and it's somebody you were thinking about at that moment. you say, i'm psychic! but millions of times you think about somebody and they are not on the phone and you forget about them! you only remember the hits, you don't remember the misses. >> okay. >> so good to have you. >> yeah.

8:30 am
and then the not so small matter of government censorship. i imagine the government here wanted to know what you were going to shoot and what you were saying about cuba. how much hands-on do they get on a script on a show like this? >> you just don't come to cuba and shoot whatever you want and they are very protective of a culture they have here and a system they have here, so in order to be here today, we submitted a script and an outline months ago. it was reviewed by the cuban government and we were given approval at various stages. >> action! >> reporter: the producers also had to get permission from the u.s. government. ambassador jeffrey de la ren day is in charge of this. what is the significance of a u.s. television show filming in cuba? >> culture is a very important bridge builder as we forward this new relationship, and so, personally, i think it's very important that we are receiving a lot of calls and a lot of visitors from different elements

[ speaking in foreign language ] >> reporter: i asked this woman what she thought of it all. she said she likes it because of relations between the u.s. and cuba and is glad the show came to her town. and cubans weren't just watching. they were hired as extras and
8:32 am
and the cast took their jobs as u.s. cultural ambassador quite seriously. we found actors ben schwartz and josh larson working on their spanish speaking skills. very good. [ speaking in foreign language ] >> that kind of stuff. >> we nailed it. >> reporter: and you know the words for rum and cigar? >> i think i do. >> reporter: kidding aside, the cast and crew seem to be aware of the show they were shooting was much more significant. >> there are many ways to bridge that culture divide so on it's an honor we have been here with that. >> reporter: for "cbs this morning," ben tracy, havana, cuba. >> i really want to go now. ben tracy breaking out the
