Elizabeth Warren stands by account of being pushed out of her first teaching job because of pregnancy

Elizabeth Warren stands by account of being pushed out of her first teaching job because of pregnancy

On the campaign trail, Elizabeth Warren often tells the story of how she was fired from her first teaching job in 1971 because she was pregnant, a pivotal moment that ultimately put her on a path to Harvard, the United States Senate, and quite possibly the presidency. But recently, several media outlets have questioned the veracity of these claims. In an exclusive interview with CBS News on Monday evening, Warren said she stands by her characterizations of why she left the job. "All I know is I was 22 years old, I was 6 months pregnant, and the job that I had been promised for the next year...

U.S. cancer death rate sees largest-ever single-year drop

U.S. cancer death rate sees largest-ever single-year drop

The death rate from cancer in the United States saw the largest ever single-year decline between 2016 and 2017 since rates began declining in 1992, according to a new report from the American Cancer Society.

Lung cancer is the leading cause of death from cancer in the United States, accounting for about 27% of all cancer deaths — more than breast, prostate, colorectal,...

UFOs regularly spotted in restricted U.S. airspace, report on the phenomena due next month

We have tackled many strange stories on 60 Minutes, but perhaps none like this. It's the story of the U.S. government's grudging acknowledgment of unidentified aerial phenomena— UAP—more commonly known as UFOs. After decades of public denial the Pentagon now admits there's something out there, and the U.S. Senate wants to know what it is. The intelligence committee has ordered the director of national intelligence and the secretary of defense to deliver a report on the mysterious sightings by next month.Bill Whitaker: So what you are telling me is that UFOs, unidentified flying objects, are...

Guns and public health: Applying preventive medicine to a national epidemic

Guns and public health: Applying preventive medicine to a national epidemic

It happened again … twice in less than twenty-four hours. Are any of us surprised? And can anybody help? When a panel of seven doctors was asked how many had seen a gunshot victim within the past week, three hands went up. "I think people think that if their loved one gets to the hospital, that there's magic there. But sometimes it's just too much for us," said Dr. Stephanie Bonne. If there was ever a time for preventive medicine, it's now, says a group of doctors. "A grandfather was shot yesterday," said Dr. Roger Mitchell. "A son was shot yesterday. Yesterday – a mother was shot...

Here's why the Trump administration says it's not required to give migrant children soap

Here's why the Trump administration says it's not required to give migrant children soap

As a Trump administration lawyer made her argument in favor of reversing a ruling that found the government had violated standards for detaining migrant children set forth by a 1990s court settlement, the judges on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals were visibly stunned. "You're really going stand up and tell us that being able to sleep isn't a question of safe and sanitary conditions?" Judge Marsha Berzon asked Sarah Fabian, the career Justice Department attorney representing the administration. "I find that inconceivable that the government would say that that is safe and sanitary,"...

Cashless trend worries lawmakers: "If it's not discrimination, it's elitism"

Cash is no longer king at many businesses in Philadelphia.

He said he sees an upside to going cashless. "Because places that handle cash are less safe than those that don't have cash on hand. Everything is reported directly into the accounting system, taxes are paid. Whereas in a cash...
