Tony Harris, cnn anchor: Good morning, everyone.
I'm Tony Harris.
CNN anchor fredricka whitfield: I'm Fredricka Whitfield from Heidi Collins.
On the last Wednesday of April, the CNN newsroom continued to develop.
The following is about the defeat.
WHITFIELD: cut or take it?
A few hours later, the Fed's bankers announced their decision on key interest rates.
Harris: fighting near Baghdad.
Young people and innocent people are caught in the middle.
Austrian police are investigating every corner of the man's life.
No one knows what's going on with his other family in the cellar?
Incest investigation in newsroom
Two main stories about "Question 1, economy", one is about the decision on interest rates, which may go deep into your pocket, and the other is about new developments in recession.
We are here to discuss GDP with CNN senior business reporter Ali Velshi and our currency team.
Let's start with GDP. Ali, .
6%. if you give me a raise.
6% I would say keep it.
Ali Wahi, CNN senior business correspondent: That's right.
The only thing is if I can't give you a raise.
6% I gave you a raise.
6% last year you will be very angry because you will think I give you less.
It is the same.
So the number of GDP.
6%, this is the same as in early 2008 and the same as at the end of 2007.
On the one hand, this is good news.
The economy, measured by GDP, is not shrinking.
Let me tell you what GDP is.
GDP is the total market value of goods and services produced by specific countries in a specific period of time.
This is a very broad measure of the economy.
What we know is that the first three months of this year are not negative.
What does this have to do with the recession?
We usually use GDP to measure whether we are in recession or not.
The National Bureau of Economic Research is an organization that tells you when you are in recession or not, I don't know what they are doing between the two, NBER did not define recession as two consecutive quarters of real GDP decline.
We talk about two quarters.
Rather, they say, the recession is a significant decline in economic activity throughout the economy for more than a few months.
Tony, this is the kimchi we eat.
GDP is still above zero.
We know we lost our job.
We know house prices have fallen.
We know that oil prices have risen.
We know about inflation.
Are we or are we not?
Harris: Let me tell you, look at this new definition. it sounds like we are.
We're talking about a mortgage crash.
We're talking about the credit crunch.
We are talking about unemployment.
It sounds like we are.
That's what most Americans think.
We leave technical problems to experts.
The Fed, the people who are meeting today, are making decisions about interest rates.
A few hours later, the decision was announced at 2: 15 Eastern time.
Are they sitting there now and saying we will cut rates again?
If we lower interest rates, it will bring more money, and maybe some businesses will expand and hire more people.
Consumers will have more money.
This will stimulate the economy.
This is usually considered a good thing if your economy is slow.
Except that you know what happens to people who have more money and spend it, it can lead to inflation.
We know Tony, we talked a lot between gas prices, corn, wheat, chicks. Yes, all of this, we are already inflation.
This is a difficult situation.
I think it's smarter to be with this man. I just feel -
Nice to meet you, Ali.
Thank you for your help this morning.
WHITFIELD: Okay.
Another day, another record, the pain of the president of the pump.
The price of gasoline has reached a new high, AAA said. Almost $3.

Hillary Clinton (D-NY)
Presidential candidate: I will reduce gas prices immediately by temporarily suspending gas taxes on consumers and businesses.
We will pay this by imposing an unexpected profit tax on big oil companies.
They can certainly afford it. SEN. BARACK OBAMA (D-IL)
Presidential candidate: Let me tell you something.
This is not an idea for you to spend the summer.
This is an idea designed to get them through the election. (END VIDEO CLIP)
WHITFIELD: most Democrats want time to tax oil companies' unexpected profits.
Although costs may eventually be passed on to consumers.
Earlier, on CNN's "American Morning" program, an oil executive said it was time for lawmakers to consider increasing domestic production. (

John Hofmeister of PRES
Shell Oil: The presidential candidate should say in the post, let's increase domestic oil production by 2 million to 3 million barrels a day.
This will put the money back in the country, put jobs back in the country, and bring more supply to the Americans who need it. (END VIDEO CLIP)
WHITFIELD: Shell Oil's John Hofmeister says Washington needs to drill fast on the Alaska coast and the state's Arctic National Wildlife Sanctuary.
These efforts have been bogged down by environmental problems.
Harris: political prescription about your health care.
John McCain is promoting his plan again today.
How about the Democratic proposal?
CNN's election correspondent Dan Lothian reports.
Nice to meet you, Dan.
Sir, please let us know these plans if you like.
Dan lothian, cnn correspondent: Yes.
The plans are clearly aimed at both Republicans and Democrats, who are on two different pages, but they are all talking about health care, and the reason they do so is because it's very critical.
This is important.
Voters have expressed this and said it is very important for them, so all candidates are providing solutions. (Start Video)
LOTHIAN: from doing it yourself to having the federal government do it for you.
All three presidential candidates are prescribing the health care system in the United States.
Senator John McCain wants you to choose to buy cheaper health insurance so he can provide a tax credit ---
$2,500 for individuals and $5,000 for families. SEN. JOHN MCCAIN (R-AZ)
Presidential candidate: Insurance companies can no longer take your business for granted, they offer narrow plans for rising costs.
This will help to change the overall dynamics of the current system of bringing individuals and families back to power.
LOTHIAN: But critics say thousands of dollars of credit will only cover a fraction of the actual medical expenses.
For example, the average plan for a family of four is more than $12,000.
And pre-people
Insurance may be blocked from existing conditions.
Democrats are on a completely different path.
Both support some sort of federal-mandated universal health insurance, but make a difference in who should be covered.
Senator Clinton says all Americans
Clinton: When it comes to health care, I believe with all my heart that health care is a right, not a privilege.
Everyone should get high quality, affordable health care.
LOTHIAN: Senator Obama supports a plan to cover only children.
Make insurance affordable for everyone else.
Obama: I don't think the problem is that people don't want health care.
Because they can't afford it. (END VIDEOTAPE)
LOTHIAN: both Democratic candidates are running in Indiana today.
They will have four activities each.
Of course, they will talk about health care, but more importantly, they will focus on economic issues.
Senator Clinton pointed out that jobs, jobs, jobs-Tony.
Harris: Okay.

Good morning, Jackie.
Jacqui jeras, ams meteorologist: Hey guys.
Yes, wind. there is such a problem here today.
We're talking about a gust of 60 miles per hour.
When you throw in the already burning fire, you blow the wind so big, you get what you call burning, in this case, xiao Yu fire may blow down from a brush or a tree and push the line further.
Then you'll find these little fire spots all over the place, which really makes it harder for you to deal with it.

Look at the relative humidity, 4% to 8%
We think about 30% is dry.

Phil, give us an update if you like.
What did the authorities say about the case this morning?
Phil black, cnn correspondent: We just heard a police briefing.
We know more about the progress of the investigation and investigation.
It is worth noting that the key suspect, Joseph Fritzl, is no longer working with the authorities.
He won't answer any of their questions.
He will not make further statements to them, which means that it is their responsibility to basically rebuild his life for the past 24 years, and the life he has so closely controlled, the people he has locked in the house below, and the people he is very tightly controlled on the surface.
We also learned more about the mental and physical condition of this family that has been reunited.
Many of them met for the first time.
Basically the news there is good.
They did a good job.
They are learning to adapt to life in the sun.
They even had a spontaneous birthday party for the youngest.
Psychiatric treatment is considered by the authorities as a whole.
They talked about measures that would make their lives as comfortable as possible and allow them to re-learn about social life.
We listen to them now. DR.
Berthold kepplinger, chief physician at maul Health Clinic: The whole family can live in a fairly reasonable living area.
They can stay together, together.
They are not disturbed in this area.
They have their own personal belongings around them.
They have 10 clinic members who are ready to provide them with the assistance they need.
We ate very little and we were able to arrange a temporary birthday party.

This is a preliminary diagnosis of these family members, if you wish.
They still have a long way to go.
Harris: There's a new Fritzl video in Thailand if you can.
Maybe you can help us in this regard.
Apparently they are on vacation.
It's kind of creepy from what we know about him.
What can you tell us about this?
Black: The picture is very special.
They showed us Josef Fritzl while on holiday in Thailand and we believe there are about 1998 people.
If you put this within the time frame of his keeping his daughter captive, she was imprisoned on 1984. 14-year --
Been imprisoned for 14 years.
You can see him basking in the sun on the beach and hanging around in a swimsuit.
This is what he often does.
He is reported to be on a regular holiday to Thailand.
So the question is, how did he take care of his second secret hidden family during that time?
How do they take care of and provide?
These are the questions that the police have to answer now, because they have rebuilt the pain of the past 24 years, which seems to be the responsibility of this person.
HARRIS: It's a story.
There have been new developments.

This morning, the Rockefeller family took a stern public stand against Exxon Mobile, which traced its roots back to Standard Oil and John D, the father of the oil and gas boom. Rockefeller.
Miles O'Brien attended this extraordinary press conference in Midtown Manhattan.
Miles, what happened?
What's the problem?
Miles O'Brien, CNN's chief technology and environment correspondent: Good morning, Fred.
The problem is alternatives to fossil fuels, and the Rockefeller family believes that Exxon's management is underinvested in finding new ways to provide energy to the world.
They are worried about climate change, but they are also worried that in the long run, the bottom line of the profit-making company will change adversely.
They point out that the great, great, or dependent grandfather made his amazing fortune by providing alternative fuel.
The box for 1870 seconds is kerosene on whale oil.
This led to the establishment of Fortune Oil.
Exxon's wealth has shrunk.
Exxon has been reluctant to invest in alternatives and the Rockefeller family these days.
Long-term shareholders are pushing some shareholder resolutions and moving the company in a new direction.
They hope to set up a panel to study global warming and its impact on poor economies.
They want companies to set targets for producing greenhouse gas emissions.
They want companies to adopt renewable energy policies. (

Rockefeller: I would like to stress that all the resolutions of the Rockefeller family members reinforce the different aspects of the same issue.
Exxon needs to identify energy-related opportunities and strengths to complement the strengths and skills of the industry, which will soon look very different from when many of Exxon's managers start their careers. (END VIDEO CLIP)
O'Brien: specifically, they talked about Rex Tillerson, CEO and chairman.
Another resolution is to call for the division of the role, with a separate chair and a separate CEO.
Fred, 66 of John D's 78 immediate descendants
Rockefeller signed these resolutions.
They are non-binding resolutions, but they want other shareholders to hear how the Rockefeller family feels about it and push for some change in the big company.
Obviously, there are some vested interests here.
Rockefeller emphasized that.
How many shares do you have in the Rockefeller family, and how exactly do you determine the number of shares held?
We asked them this question.
The Rockefeller family says they don't know how many stocks they have.
I guess Fredricka, you're really not rich if you know how much you have, right?
WHITFIELD: That's right.
If you ask how much money you can afford.
That kind of thing.
O'Brien: Exactly right, girl.
WHITFIELD: Okay, Miles.
Thanks so much. Appreciate it.
Nice to meet you.

Sanjay Gupta, CNN's chief medical correspondent: packed with waiting rooms.
Fewer patients were selected.
Three years after Hurricane Katrina, hospitals in the city were in critical condition.
We were sitting in an ambulance and it was a special appeal to a woman who complained about her headache.
We need to check and see what happens.
These special caregivers receive 15 calls a day.
Which is a lot.
Every phone call has a challenge.

Tell me what a typical day looks like in this hospital here. DR.
James mois from Tulane Medical Center: when I walk into the emergency department at any time, there may be 10 to 15 patients waiting to see.
Because the hospital is full, the emergency department is full.
There are many patients and few hospitals.
A survey last year found that nine out of ten New Orleans residents felt the hospital was not enough to take care of them.
Half of New Orleans's hospitals have opened since Hurricane Katrina.
Think about it.
Labor costs are rising.
The cost of public utilities rose and the cost of insurance rose.
Not enough help.
When we looked into it, we had something that never happened before.
Five hospitals have combined 90% of the patients here, and they are working together to sustain their lives. DR.
Mark Peters at East Jefferson General Hospital: We're all together.
In the old pre-
In the Katrina era, it can be a good thing when your competitors don't perform well.
But if someone has to cut service now, it will have a negative impact on the rest of us.
Gupta: even with support, all five hospitals are on the verge of cutting mental health and pediatric programs.
Before the storm, the two hospitals made a total profit of $12 million.
They lost a total of $0. 135 billion last year.
Peters: The loss is unsustainable.
Gupta: It's an effect from the bottom line to the front line.
I asked the medical staff how bad the situation was with Davis lenoa.
New Orleans caregiver Davis lenowa: The worst thing that happened was that I waited five hours for a stroke.
Gupta: They said you can get to the hospital in 90 minutes, right?
Yes, sir.
Back to our emergency call.
Do you remember the woman with a numb face?
She is going to the hospital now.
From today's point of view, at least two.
Waited an hour before seeing her at the pier, even though she was taken away by an ambulance.

Often hidden in trucks are dozens of men from Central America who are heading to the last stop in the United States.
Riding the "Beast" is just one of the many obstacles facing immigrants, just like Gerson Reyes in Honduras.

But a suburb of Mexico City offers a shelter to get out of trouble.
Along the Ecatepec railroad, the White House is a place to rest and be safe.
This was built by the mayor's office.
Immigrants can stay here for a few days, take a hot bath, eat something, put on a clean shirt and take a break.
"The police told us that there is a house on this road where we can take a break," he said . ".
"When we came last Saturday.
We slept all day.
"Ecatepec knows a lot about the hardships of immigration.
Many people came here from the poor countryside of Mexico.
The city's mayor, Jose Luiz Gutierrez, said 100,000 of residents had traveled to the United States.
Providing help to others is a way of wishing their people better treatment at the border, he said.
"We saw our own son in the young people who passed here.
We see our parents and our wives and daughters in those who come all the way.
All we can do is treat them like we do with America.
Gutierrez said that the most difficult part of building a shelter is to persuade the police to stop robbing immigrants.
On last December, he officially declared Ecatepec a safe haven.
Since then, about 40 migrants have gone through the White House by rail for a few hours before reboarding the "Beast" every day.
