9:09 am
be made more upon the bid itself as opposed to the people backing the bid. some of this is dialogue that has said just because we are members of the press, but this is what the cities have been working years on the day of drama is building. the anticipation is building and the international olympic committee kicks off its opening ceremonies later this evening here in copenhagen. back to you. jeff, one quick question for you. in south america. en an does that make rio the front runner in this? >> in the eyes of many, it does. rio is positioning it bid on the fact that no games have been held in south america. what this comes down to is will

9:15 am

9:16 am
work. rolling out across different states. we are expecting the folks will be able to get their shot maybe as early as next week. -- the new york health department is saying their workers must get the shot. do you see this as a trend or state ise or the military required to get the shot. >> it's evolving. i wouldn't call it a trend. when you are going into a case and you're sick, you're one of those folks that does have under lying respiratory issues. those folks more at risk -- you want to feel more comfortable that you're not going into an area where you're going to be infected. that is the rational behind healthcare workers being asked to get the flu
9:17 am
>> we lose over 30,000 from seasonal flu. it's not reported or a big deal. we accept that it's horrible and every death is important. but we're talking about children at higher risk. it's the different population. kids who don't have under lying illnesses getting the swine flu and dying. this is scary. you have people saying "we don't want our employees making anyone sick." we're seeing it now with healthcare workers. easily understandable. we may see it other places as different states have different labor laws. it becomes more of a legal question about what something.
9:18 am
>> 30,000 people die from seasonal flu. i'm wondering if this is in the news and what we are talking about is there a push to do this when tens of thousands already die from the seasonal flu? was it mandatory for them to get the seasonal flu shot? i'm not sure. perhaps you can answer that. >> in some places it is. in some hospitals they will mandate that their employees get seasonal flu shots. it's work place by work place. what is different is the population it's targeting. the younger folks we don't expect to get sick or children. when you begin having someone do that plus the fact it's spreading so rapidly around the world. there is a pandemic.
9:19 am
who is going to pay for these shots? >> we're going to ask the people who mandate you get the shot that question. the military folks are not going to get billed. if you are a hospital worker is your hospital paying for it? those are the kinds of questions i think are entirely reasonable along wth why are you doing this to me? when people come here we don't want them to risk getting sick. a loot of times mandates with explanation allow people to say you know what? i agree with your logic. let me go ahead and do. this >> sometimes stories like that the case involves no under

9:25 am
>> kids should be aware of homeless stuff and what's going on with the economy the way it is but i don't think it's a good thing. i think a 7 or 8 or 9-year-old was kind of scared by it. >> reporter: gwen is part of american girl's 2009 girl of the year line. these are depression era, victorian area. she comes with a back story and a book. gwen's dad walked out and mom and daughter started living out of their car and gwen was bullied by the out. >> reporter: parens say
9:26 am
homeless families don't need a constant reminder. but at this price, homeless families won't be buying them. >> i, for one, love that idea. eight or nine, there are homeless kids out there. it is a problem. why not talk about it. and if you don't like the idea, don't buy the doll. interesting. >> right. don buy it. it's actually photos of the president and his smile appears to be unchanging. is the commander in chief really that consistent? it's amazing. >> this is a good story. we'll be right back.

9:36 am
case. >> as depends on how fast. >> in indonesia. >> werght quakes the numbers of deaths can rise significantly over a few days. right now we have confirmed numbers from the government. 500 deaths, serl several hundred injuries. those numbers could rise over the next several days. several buildings have collapsed. people are trapped. it was a major earthquake. those numbers are going to change. right now confirms a few hundred deaths. >> does the fact they have significant aftershocks. does that slow the response? >> it certainly can. indonesia has earthquakes much more frequently in a very significant magnitude than we
