start with us. i'm christine romans. >> i'm laura jarrett. welcome to our viewers around the states and around the world. atlanta and johannesburg to get to. we start with breaking news. jon gruden resigning a's head coach of the las vegas raiders after "the new york times" reported he made homophobic and misogynistic comments in numerous emails over the course of 1e6seven years. our corey wire is here. how did all those emails come out after so long? >> good morning to you. the emails came out as part of a workplace misconduct legal case against the washington football team. the report says gruden denounced women as referees and drafting gay players when the rams drafted michael sam in 2012. player ache reed who kneeled during the national anthem should be fired. and used a homophobic slur when referring to roger goodell. the emails are from a seven-year
period that ended in 2018. gruden said, i love the raiders and do not want to be a distraction. thank you to all the players, coaches, staff and fans of raider nation. i'm sorry. i never meant to hurt anyone. on friday "the wall street journal" reported in 2011 gruden who was working for espn at the time used racially insensitive language to describe nfl players association executive director da morris smith. gruden apologized after the team's game sunday. >> all i can say is i'm not a racist. i don't -- i can't tell you how sick i am. i apologize again to d. smith. but i feel good about who i am and what i've done my entire life. and i apologize for the insensitive remarks. i had no, you know, i had no racial intentions with those remarks at all. >> reporter: smith tweeted in response, the email from jon gruden and some of the reaction to it confirms the fight against
racism racist tropes and intolerance is not over. this is not about an email as it is a pervasive belief by some that people who look like me can be treated as less. gruden signed a ten year $100 million contract in 2018 to be the head coach of the raiders. laura, christine, the raiders announced special teams coordinator rich will take over as the interim head coach. >> seems like this is just the first of other things to come. a lot of emails there, corey. thank you so much. trouble on the roads. the price of energy skyrocketing. oil prices crashed, remember, at the start of the pandemic as roads and airports were closed. they sat empty. now demand is ramping back up as the economy reopens, but supply just can't keep up. u.s. oil prices finished above 80 bucks a barrel monday. the highest in seven years. it means a pain at the pump for drivers. the average gallon of gas hit a seven year high. prices have doubled since bottoming the $1.77 at the
beginning of the pandemic. prices start cooling off in the fall but the sticker shock may last longer. what is a global energy crisis. >> we're in the midst of what is developing into a global energy crunch. in china they are trying to cut energy consumption because of a lack of coal inventories. in europe there is a shortage of natural gas that has caused natural gas prices in europe to explode to their highest level ever. prices in michigan fell, i think in some cases to $1.30 a gallon. it shut down production. they let tens of thousands of workers go, why they shutdown so much production. >> the ifferocity caught everyby by surprise. the cartel decided to gradually increase output. that means prices continue higher. and in the air, a fifth day
of trouble for southwest. the airline cancelling more than 2,000 flights and delayed nearly 40% of its flights monday. the cause of this whole mess is still unclear. some customers have taken matters into their own hands. one couple rented a u-haul and drove nine hours to get home to kansas. and with staffing shortages crushing this industry nationwide, passengers can expect moreh headaches get into the holiday season. cnn's pete muntean has more from the international airport. >> reporter: this is a mess for southwest airlines. it is not like flipping on a switch to get things back to normal. this is more akin to unplugging the operation and plugging it back in again. southwest says this all started with problems on friday. it pins the blame here on air traffic control and weather issues, which prompted a statement from the federal aviation administration saying that was not the case on saturday and sunday when southwest experienced the lion's share of these cancellations.
the bottom line here is that the airline is not out of the woods just yet. it says there was a ripple effect because of all these problems that left planes and their people in far-off places they weren't intended to be. in some cases flight crew were not able to get hotels. that all means tens of thousands of passengers were stranded. you're seeing the long lines at airports across the country. passengers report very long wait times to get on the phone with customer service, and they're not happy about this. >> normally it's the weather problem, it's across the board. all the airlines are impacted. i'm skeptical what the reasoning is behind that. >> if this doesn't correct by the holiday, the thanksgiving holiday season, it's going to be a nightmare in this country for the entire holiday season. >> there's no explanation for this problem, so i suspect that southwest isn't being totally honest with us.
>> we've been worrying about it the past 24 hours. literally couldn't sleep last night really because we didn't know what was going to happen. >> looking through, there's just nothing, nothing, nothing, for the next few days. very anxious to get home now. >> reporter: southwest airlines has issued a new statement in which it says it is offering a tremendous apology to its customers. it is also underscoring that these problems were not the result of employee protests over its new vaccine mandate. christine, laura? >> all right, pete muntean, thank you for that. growing challenges on the roads and in the air bring president biden's economic agenda into sharper focus now. the house still hasn't passed the president's $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill, the one on roads, trains and airports. >> also a new report says a quarter of critical infrastructure in the u.s. is at substantial risk of failure due to flooding. that includes roads, airports, hospitals, police and fire stations and waste water plants. this is only going to get worse as the climate crisis grows.

it runs up against president biden's vaccine requirement for large businesses and federal workers and federal contractors. but it is the republican governor's latest attempt to play politics with public health as he faces pressure from those on the right and his primary challengers. let's bring in cnn legal analyst jennifer rodgers. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> can the governor do this legally? i can think about three different reasons why this might get challenged. what do you think? >> you're absolutely right, laura. the primary reason it's a legal problem for the governor is the supremacy clause of the federal constitution which says effect you havely when there is a conflict between federal laws and orders and those of a state, the federal law will prevail as long as it's constitutional. here we have a biden executive order telling businesses they can either require a vaccine or they can test. that is a constitutional order. and so the state of texas' contrary order is not going to
survive a court challenge. >> it seems like that is certainly what animated this. southwest airlines, american airlines are headquartered in texas. they recently instituted a vaccine mandate for their federal workers. this seems like a motivation for this. >> jennifer, 65% of texans in an august poll supported a vaccine mandate. republicans are supposed to be, right, the party that's pro business. keep the government's hands off our business. don't tell us what to do. here he is telling businesses what they can and can't do. so what's the motive here? >> well, that's been puzzling to a lot of people. all i can think of is he's a politician. he wants to have it both ways. we know that the governor is vaccinated himself. we know that even in this executive order he makes clear to say that he thinks the vaccine is the best way to get us out of the pandemic. it's safe, et cetera, so all i can think is he's trying to appeal to both sides. the people who believe in the vaccine and the people who believe in freedom for texans. >> but he's not doing this obviously for all vaccines. he's doing this for the covid
vaccine and he's taking it a step further. he had already banned vaccine mandates for schools and for any government agency. he's now forcing private business owners as we said to do this. so i wonder, jennifer, who is likely to have the strongest case in court to get some of these executive orders struck down? is it a parent who wants to get their kid vaccinated? is it a business, a small business owner perhaps who wants to make sure he or she can protect all of its workers? who is going to have the best chance in court? >> i think at this point, laura, the best chance is a business owner because we do have that biden executive order that's very clear about certain categories of businesses. >> yeah. >> so you take that and you take the governor's order, they're directly contrary. you bring in the supremacy clause and i think that's game over for that business in texas. >> yep, thanks for getting up early this morning. 9% t nice to see you. >> good to see you. thanks.
>> a teacher shortage is only getting worse. classroom vacancies have now surged to 5100, up 67% from last year with another 4,000 openings for bus drivers. cafeteria, woulders -- workers other staff jobs. the stress of the pandemic is what's behind the shortages. it says the problem is being driven by florida's low teacher pay. teacher pay in florida 49th in the country. >> yikes. in wisconsin two school districts are now being sued in federal court by saying their kids caught covid in the classroom because their schools don't require masks. one mom said a classmate sat next to her son who was sick leading to an outbreak in the class. >> they threw students into a covid-19 snake pit. they have an unusual ben factor helping their cause. the owner of a small wisconsin brewery. >> these plaintiffs were in the health care industry, so they
were particularly upset that they had, you know, been through covid, helping other people recover from covid. now that their school district wasn't protecting their kids, their kids brought covid to their home. >> so that brewery is funding the lawsuits against the fall creek districts and looking to have the suits certified for class action to take on all wisconsin districts that don't follow cdc guidelines. that must be very honestly very frustrating to go through the whole health care disaster of a year and a half, kids go back to school and they bring home covid. all right. so you think you need a college degree for a good job? well, a growing number of employers say no degree, no problem. tell you why. i brought in ensure max protein, with thirty grams of protein. those who tried me felt more energy in just two weeks!

all right. more pressure on the white house this morning after another round of provocations from china against taiwan. the chinese military carrying out drills in a province directly across the sea from taiwan. taiwan, of course, is democratically ruled, but beijing is stepping up pressure to force it to accept chinese control. the u.s. caught in the middle here. david culver is live from shanghai. david, we've seen air force incursions into air force defense zone. they are making a push to change the status quo here. >> reporter: if we go back to that video, christine, you were showing, this was put out yesterday which was the day after taiwan celebrated its national day. and it was clear propaganda. but as you pointed out, the geography of where this was taking place cannot be
overlooked. it's the province directly across the strait from taiwan. it shows military officials going onto the beach, troops training to go up into a terrain that is very similar to what you would see in taiwan. so, what is that? is it a flexing of military muscle? sure, in part. is it also possible training for these troops and an actual logistical work through they're trying to understand should they need to actually put it into practice? that, too, is a likelihood. and you mentioned those incursions. we saw record incursions this month. fighter and bomber jets, they were above taiwan going into their air defense identification zone. now china looks at this and says, that's our sovereignty. this is not a not incurring. this is doing what we believe part of our territorial right. taiwan has a different take on this. their president saying over the weekend china's approach on this is threatening democracies around the world. that is what brings the u.s. into all this. folks in the u.s. may look at
this and say why should we care what's playing out here. they should very much care because taiwan relies heavily on the u.s., not only for many of the military supplies and some of the training and some of the missiles and jets, arsenal that have been demonstrated as recently as this past weekend, but also just from a overall approach of democracy and how they are relying heavily on the u.s. support. going forward, the question is going to be is beijing going to put enough pressure on the global community, in particularly in their conversations because there is now communication with the biden administration to eventually take over taiwan, and that seems to be exactly where they're headed because president xi has said here it's not a matter, essentially, of if, but when. he says it must and it will be done. those words coming from the president here as recently as this past weekend. chris
christine, let's put in context beijing 2022 olympics. that's where the world stage is coming back here to the people republic of china. it puts on the pressure of showing a unified china, more powerful china, certainly more powerful than 2008 the last time they hosted an olympics. you also have next year the congress party. that is traditionally, christine, the transition of power, but we know that president xi is very likely to move forward with continuing on as the leader here as he abolished the term limits. and so it's likely that he'll want to continue to build up his legacy. what better way to do that than by reunifying taiwan and the mainland. >> david, this is an incredibly important story with implications around the world, no question. and a challenge for this white house. thank you so much. david culler from shanghai this morning. coming up for you a mental health crisis. college students facing enormous pressure, enormous anxiety during this pandemic. what one major university is

vaccination rate. only a third of pregnant women are fully vaccinated. studies show covid-19 worsens pregnancy complications, and this new data shows that almost one in five of england's most critically ill covid patients, one in five are unvaccinated pregnant women. let's bring in dr. tamika augusty. thank you so much for joining us this morning. laura and i have been looking at these numbers for sometime and they've been stubbornly low, the vaccination rates of women. quite honestly, there wasn't clear guidance for women until maybe july or earlier in the summer. is that why too few pregnant women have the shot? and what's your message for pregnant women right now? >> good morning. thank you for having me. yes, i think that the reason is there wasn't very clear data in the beginning. but since we've had the studies done and we are learning more, the message has changed. and we know now that pregnant
women should be vaccinated against covid-19 at any stage in pregnancy or when lactating. >> what are you hearing in your practice from women? what is the concern? women get flu shots. women get all kinds of things. obviously pregnancy is terrifying, even on a good day. but what are you hearing as the concern? >> so, women are concerned, and rightfully so, about the impact of the vaccine on their unborn child and themselves during pregnancy. so here's the thing. we now know, we have hundreds and thousands of women who have -- who were pregnant and received the vaccine in all different stages during pregnancy. so it's now up to us to share that information. we have good outcomes. and that is what the messaging needs to be and what we need to share with all of our pregnant women. >> yes. so much of the conversation among pregnant women, though, is the flip side of that. they're worried about getting their nails done and the chemicals in the nail polish and getting their hair dyed and the chemicals in the hair dye.
and whatever is in the vaccine, they're not worried about the virus, they're worried about the vaccine. how do we change that narrative? >> so, first thing is listen to them. let's listen to the concerns that they have. have a conversation with your health care provider, with your obstetrical provider. talk to them about what are their concerns. let's review what the studies show. let's review what we've seen. and through that hopefully we'll be able to turn it around. also one of the biggest things is that we know that the vaccine does not reach the unborn child. the vaccine reaches -- the vaccine causes antibodies and those antibodies cross the placenta to the fetus and to the unborn child. that's what we need to focus on. by getting the vaccine, pregnant women are protecting their child against covid-19. >> again, this data out of the uk is really scary. i mean, one in five of the most critically ill patients, i mean, these are really, really ill people, pregnant women. that should be a wake up call,
right? >> it should. we need to let everyone know what we're seeing. we are definitely seeing that pregnant women who are getting symptomatic covid are becoming very, very sick. we are seeing those patients end up in the i.c.u. on advance life support, and some of them dying. we see that. we have to talk about that. we need to let people know that's what we're seeing now. so i think it's very important messaging to give the entire picture of what's going on. >> that is the reality of what is going on. thank you so much for all of your work, dr. tamika augusty, board member of american college of obstetricians gynecologists. >> appreciate so much, doctor. >> thank you. >> all right. the university of north carolina at chapel hill cancelling classes today to observe what it is calling a wellness day. the school is reeling from two students who died by suicide in just the past month. cnn's jacqueline howard has more on this. >> reporter: christina and
laura, the university's chancellor kevin guskowitz a neuroscientist says there is a mental health crisis on the campus and across the entire united states. in making his announcement about the university's wellness day, he writes this. quote: as a chancellor, a professor and a parent, my heart breaks for all those whose suffering goes unnoticed. now, the chancellor made this announcement on sunday. here's how students responded. >> i think it's good that they're recognizing that something's going on, there have been two suicides in two days. >> we're a bit confused. why on tuesday as opposed to tomorrow? why are we waiting? i just don't think it's coincidence that the wellness day is the same day as university day. or the second half of the day was supposed to be crisis anyway. >> i've had so many conversations with people i'm not close with. they're like, yeah, it was a
phase. it was something i had to go through. >> i think that they're trying, but it kind of seems like a bare minimum response. >> several studies have found links between the covid-19 pandemic and mental health challenges. one report last year from the cdc finds that almost 41% of adults report mental health challenges stemming from the pandemic. christine and laura? >> so important there. jacqueline, thank you so much. if you or anyone you know needs help, please call the national suicide prevention lifeline at 1-800-273 talk. 273-8255. you might think you can't get a job without a degree. employers don't care. tech companies like google, amazon, salesforce, for years they've been trying to solve

welcome back. a significant shift for the world health organization now. its vaccines advisers are recommending an additional dose of covid vaccine for people who are immunocompromised and they are careful to characterize it as an extra dose, and not a booster shot. david mackenzie joins us live from johannesburg with the latest on this. so, david, this is something of a change. why the shift? >> reporter: well, laura, it's really semantics, but it is important. in one case they say no booster shots, but in another case an advisory panel to the w.h.o. is saying immunocompromised people should get a third shot for
well-known vaccines in the u.s. or second shot for johnson & johnson. and specifically for the chinese-manufactured vaccines, anyone over 60, they're saying, should get a third shot. and it's really about what the booster or the third shot does. it's both to get boosting immunity in people. it's who it's for. so they're suggesting for people who might have hiv/aids or type 1 diabetes or lupus, immune, autoimmune diseases as well, that limit their body's ability to create a long-term response to covid-19 when they get vaccinations. but they do say that booster shots, which are just general more available to the population, are a big no-no. here's one of the leaders of the w.h.o. >> this time and as the director jen has called for, a moratorium on booster doses for the jen population because giving those
booster doses to individuals who already have had the benefit of a primary response is as has been explained before, like putting two life jackets on somebody and leaving other people without any life jacket. >> reporter: well, the u.s. is obviously one of those countries giving booster shots. very fascinating, this as well, a coalition working to solve the issues. it's giving $25 million to research whether less vaccine can be used for those booster shots. they call it fractionization. that is a real word, i promise. and that is to try and see if less dosage can be used to give effective booster shot to allow more vaccines to come to places like here in africa, which is desperately needing vaccines. >> that would be a huge boost for sure, david. thank you so much for your reporting this morning. police in georgia arresting a man accused of fatally shooting an officer. an officer who was working his
