This Morning from CBS News, April 13, 2015

Going small

Hillary Clinton is very deliberately going small in Iowa, her first stop since announcing in an online video yesterday that she’s running for president again. First, she’ll do a roundtable with some community college students, and then she’ll visit a local fruit business, reports CBS News correspondent Nancy Cordes. Her campaign is trying to convey that she’s not expecting a coronation — that she plans to work for every vote — which was clearly the idea behind her announcement video.

Next hat

He’ll become the third Republican and the third senator to enter the race for president in 2016, following his colleagues Ted Cruz of Texas and Rand Paul of Kentucky. Here are five things to know about Senator Marco Rubio.

Body-camera shooting

There has been another fatal shooting of an African-American suspect by a white police officer. In this case, the officer was a 73-year-old Tusla, Oklahoma insurance executive moonlighting as a reserve deputy. The county sheriff’s office has asked the FBI to conduct an independent assessment, which could put civil rights violations on the table, reports CBS News correspondent Elaine Quijano.

More charges?

South Carolina officials are considering more charges in the deadly police shooting of Walter Scott. A disturbing video captured the moment Scott was gunned down after a routine traffic stop. Despite quick action in charging Slager, there are stilllingering questions about whether other officers on the scene did everything they could to save Scott’s life. CBS News correspondent Vicente Arenas reports from the Charleston County Detention Center, where former officer Michael Slager, who fired the gun, is being held.

Spring break rape

Sheriff’s deputies in Panama City Beach, Florida, are searching for two men accused in a gang rape on a crowded beach. Two other suspects have already been charged. A group assaulted an apparently unconscious woman in the middle of the day during spring break last month, but no one intervened. It was caught on cell phone video. CBS News correspondent Anna Werner reports on new details.

Focusing on fairness

Jen Psaki is back at the White House, this time as communications director. Psaki, who had the deputy’s job when she left the White House four years ago, wrote a note to the White House press corps to reintroduce herself, noting that some things have changed (she left a White House that ran on BlackBerries – staffers have largely since converted to iPhones), and some things haven’t – the administration is focused on fairness in the U.S. economy — as her glimpse at the events on the president’s schedule this week shows.

Market change?

American investors have been sort of left out of the stock market party so far this year, watching from afar as equities in China, Japan and Europe have soared, thanks to currency effects and the impact of cheap money stimuli. the NYSE Composite Index remains mired in a trading range going all the way back to July. That’s right: nearly a year of churning, turbulent action without much to show for it. But that could be set to change.

Myspace evolves

Though you might have thought Myspace was gone, the social media pioneer never went away. It just faded into the background. But now it’s bringing itself back to the fore, with massive growth numbers and a new persona.

“Instagram for doctors”

Figure 1, a sort of Instagram for the medical set, is one of the many digital tools helping to shape the way doctors communicate, develop their skills, deepen their understanding of medicine and help treat patients.

Asymmetrical attack

There was an absurd quality to the whole episode of the cyber-attack on Sony, reports “60 Minutes” correspondent Steve Kroft, which was over an ill-advised movie comedy about the assassination of North Korea’s leader, which the North Koreans did not find funny. The weirdness of it all has obscured a much more significant point: that an impoverished foreign country had launched a devastating attack against a major company on U.S. soil and that not much can be done about it.

Biracial Miss Japan

Newly crowned Miss Universe Japan Ariana Miyamoto is sparking controversy as the first biracial winner of the pageant. Japan is one of the most homogeneous countries on earth, and the newest beauty queen is prompting a debate about what it means to be Japanese. As CBS News correspondent Seth Doane reports, the 20-year-old says she wants to represent the new face of Japan.

Young choreographer

Ballets dreamed up by Justin Peck feel at once classical and new, an energy that has become distinct to the young choreographer’s work. In just a few years, Peck has become one of the most sought-after choreographers in the world of ballet. At 27, he is both a soloist dancer and the resident choreographer for the New York City Ballet – the second person in history to hold the position.
