we talked to our doctors about treatment with xarelto . xarelto is proven to treat and help reduce the risk of dvt and pe blood clots. xarelto is also proven to reduce the risk of stroke in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. you know, taking warfarin, i had to deal with that blood testing routine. i couldn't have a healthy salad whenever i wanted. i found another way. yeah, treatment with xarelto . hey, safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto can cause serious and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto , watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding.
7:54 am
or dental procedures. before starting xarelto , tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto is the number one prescribed blood thinner in its class. well that calls for a round of kevin nealons. make mine an arnold palmer. same here. with xarelto there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto . on average, it takes three hundred americans working for a solid year, to make as much money as one top ceo. it's called the wage gap. and the republicans will make it worse by lowering taxes for those at the top and letting corporations write their own rules. hillary clinton will work to close the wage gap. equal pay for women to raise incomes for families, a higher minimum wage, lower taxes for the middle class. she gets the job done for us.

7:58 am
governments around the world are reacting with alarm and skepticism skepticism. the test registered overnight as a magnitude 5.1 earthquake centered at a site where nuclear tests were carried out in 2006, 2009 and 2013. north korea's announcement on state-run television took aim at the united states. it said the test was a self-defense measure. >> now, people across the border in south korea watched very nervously, but south korea's military says that it doubts that the explosion was big enough to be a hydrogen bomb. united nations security council plans an emergency meeting later today. president obama surrounded himself with relatives of shooting victims as he announced new federal rules for gun sales. the executive actions require all gun dealers to be licensed and conduct background checks. the government will hire 200 more investigators to make those checks more effective. there are also plans to increase mental health treatment and improve reporting the background check system.

string of mass shootings during his term and he spoke about them during his remarks tuesday. his responses have evolved from grief and empathy to frustration and anger. the president shared a new level of that emotion tuesday talking about balancing the right to bear arms with other rights. >> our unalienable right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, those rights were stripped from college kids in blacksburg and santa barbara, and from high schoolers at columbine. and from first graders in newtown. every time i think about those kids, it gets me mad. and by the way, it happens on the streets of chicago every day. >> the president also said that if you pass a background check,
8:00 am
and he said his plan was not a plot to take anybody's weapons away, but republicans campaigning for the president called the move an abuse of power. >> because, you know, you can't get your way in congress, you can't take your toys and go home. you can't do things that the constitution doesn't allow you to do. >> what he's basically doing, he's issuing things and ignoring the legality of it. >> president obama came out with yet another set of laws, executive actions trying to go after our right to keep and bear arms. >> i just think this is a liberal agenda on his part that makes no sense. >> just wants to sign executive orders all the time. no good. it's no good. it's no good. it's no fair and they're not going to screw around with the second amendment, okay. it's not going to happen. >> comments from people campaigning for the presidency.

8:02 am
parent acquires u.s. citizenship at birth. since cruz is born to an american mother, he has natural born citizenship. >> this was also an issue as i recall with senator mccain who was born overseas because his father was serving in the navy, so it has been discussed before. >> it's very clear. a san diego man says that the tsa overreacted in the search of his 10-year-old daughter. agents at raleigh-durham international airport patted her down last week for about two minutes. it's all because she had a juice box in her carry-on luggage. the father said all that extra screening took nearly an hour. the tsa says in this case agents followed approved procedures. only on "cbs this morning," you're seeing one of the hottest new drones for the first time on tv buzzing around. the consumer electronics show in las vegas. here's a view from the drone itself.

8:10 am
that's outrageous. >> gabe foo is a board member for santa clara youth soccer. he's concerned the nfl will damage the fields. >> we have yet to see anything on paper from the nfl or the city that proves that they're going to return it in the same condition. >> sophia mendoza hopes to play soccer in college. she says closing the complex could hurt her chances of being recruited. >> it's way easier to play and show off and showcase yourself on a good field than it is on a high school field or just a park with some grass. without those fields, then we don't get the same exposure. >> the nfl says it will minimize any impact on the fields and is protect the grass. a spokesman also said, quote, the nfl and 49ers have already committed to replace at no cost to the city of santa clara the two natural grass fields.
8:11 am

8:19 am
but easier. put all of your clothes in once. there is no second trip to have to change them into the dryer! what is fascinating is it can tell if you left your phone in your clothes and send you a message that you need to come and get it! >> how? >> it better not be because my phone is already in the washer, right, so it better not be a text message. >> before the water starts? >> let's hope it starts before the water flows. how about driverless cars? >> seeing a lot of those here tonight and next is the detroit auto show. the thing here we are even seeing a car that was a drone and prototype car that takes selfies of you driving it. >> brian cooley, thanks so much and have a fun time in vegas.

8:26 am
precision medicine and immunotherapy that is offering a staggering hope in this disease and both of them is actually in practice. >> i know you agree on that. how did immunotherapy works? it's helped president jimmy carter. >> it has looked in way of treating cancer. in years past what we have done is target the cancer and cut it out and treat with a tox cal chem. now immunotherapy is looking us to change the immune system and entirely different way of treating cancer. it's 40 years in the making but we are there and we are seeing a lot of responses. have never seen before. >> how does it work? >> it's pretty exciting. >> how does it work? >> it can work in many ways. it can work by turning on your lympho cites or taking things off cancer cells called
8:27 am
popular now. >> the cancer -- this block that don't eat me signal to allow the cells to come in and eat them. >> we want that. judy, you talk about the genetics. angelina jolie brought a lot to the braach regime. >> not very many people have a strong gene like anklegelina jolie. we save lives for those people. for the rest of us who don't have those genes, all of our genes have a role in balancing what we are exposed to and how we fight them off ourselves. so our genes are still important. finally, our cancers have their own versions of our genes and that is where targeted therapies and physician medicines come when you can understand part of the biology driving that tumor and those genes that are making it different and target those.
8:28 am
i'm going to get a mammogram on friday and it's always a very nerve wracking thing. you look at the statistics where it says every three minutes, two people in the u.s. die from cancer. when you hear the "c" word you think, oh, no, it's over. i don't understand, david with, all of the brains we have working on it and all of the technology, that we still can't say we can cure it. >> listen. i'm with you. we have to approach it in a different way. historically we target the cancer cell but more we are trying to change the system. my job is to target that cancer and kill the cell and to change you where the doesn't want to grow and a new way of approaching and i hope we yield from it but you're right, we failed. my business has not done as well as we could have. >> david, what we underestimate is this disease. every disease, there are similarities, but the cancer cells can be different within an
8:29 am
between individuals canning dwight -- can be quite different. the challenge is to target each individual and their genes that get translated. it's a huge challenge. we don't underestimate the challenge. >> are we looking at the possibility that some of the new therapies can attack a number of different cancers, not just a specific cancer? >> correct. we are seeing what we call signatures. changes in the genes that look reproducible from one type of cancer to the other. your risk of kidney cancer is what for lung cancer what you receive from kidney cancer. we are just understanding the changes to let us target that particular individually. >> you offer an anecdote about steve jobs' kansas city. >> he was safe on a lily pad but
8:30 am
was swimming again in the pond. what is true that anna said. 1840s we started to characterize cancer by body parts and it hasn't changed since. we will categorize them by on switches and a new way you'll not have lung cancer but something of the kind. >> let's talk about prevention. the thing that most people should start focusing on. you say in your book what you do early on in life affects what you do later in life. what can we do when we think about prevention? >> i think there is a lot we can do. >> yes. >> unfortunately, much of it is the basic things we have already known. >> yes. >> we would prevent cancer if we could get rid of cigarettes. >> environmental factors? >> the environmental factors and lifestyle factors. the things you can control. if you can heat a healthy diet and exercise and try to take good care of yourself and not smoke, you can reduce cancer risks by 40%. 40% is huge. then you're left with all of
8:31 am
so that is what we talked about genetics genetics. some people will learn they can prevent. others have to play the healthy lifestyle game all their lives. we talked about early detection. that is still important. we do beat some cancers when we find them early. >> do you think -- do you agree with dr. agus about baby aspinner every day? >> yes, 100%. >> 100%? >> yes! >> and for heart disease too. it's a two-fer. >> prostate cancer, baby as aspinneras aspirin. damian lewis has a new role. you'll love to hate this guy. we will ask him about that. what about those james bond rumors that keep bubbling up

8:33 am
everything. >> so the truth. >> the truth? you came this close to blowing into a million piece. did you tell him that? >> i didn't wear a bomb! >> damian lewis became a star as
8:34 am
and now to star in "billions." he plays a powerful hedge fund manager in his success and expensive real estate gets the attention of the u.s. attorney who thinks the hedge fund isn't trading above board. >> you're sending me messages. i'm here. >> well, in my office thought you might buy that house. i told them you have big -- but not that big. >> yeah, right. i'll probably pass. it's so nice, though, you know? feels like you're part of the beach and ocean and all that air out there? you know about it. your daddy has got a little place out there. he must let you use a bedroom some weekends if you say please. >> walk away. >> wow! damian lewis! good morning. >> you're in trouble! >> you know? >> let's just say this is not
8:35 am
huge fans of you. we loved "homeland" and this. is it fun playing a billionaire? >> great fun playing a billionaire. i'd like to know what it's like to be a billionaire. it was good fun. in terms of production value on the show, you know, we were moments in a yacht and helicopter and fast cars and all of that kind of stuff and using the beautiful new york -- >> did you talk to hedge fund guys who make so much money every year? >> i did. they were all fascinating. all with a compelling defense for being billionaires, being hedge fund titans. >> i don't know if you've seen it. a piece in "wall street journal" today in the business section about how the writers met with a u.s. attorney here in new york to also get a sense for this whole thing. so it's not so far-fetched and not so fictional. >> no. and i'm not going to mention any names but in recent history, i think there has been this relationship played out a little
8:36 am
and the financial titans here in new york. >> investigation continues. >> so we hope -- we hope that much -- in fact, you led with that clip of "homeland" much of the way "homeland" dovetailed in a enout of the news. >> tell us what that conflict is between the u.s. attorney played by giomadi and you playing the businessman. >> you're playing the role of who is bigger. just saying. >> there is only one winner! you're right. you're right to say that it's kings in their kingdoms. it's chiefs and this is about power. it's power politics. it's about wealth. political power and financial power. and what are these guys prepared to do to retain that power? and also, you know, it is an entertaining piece. >> it is.
8:37 am
slugging it out, two heavyweights slugging it out. it's also, you know, carefully just threaded in there, a little argument, a little discourse on libertarian versus regulation, new money versus old money. i'm a blue collar guy, come up from not very much humble beginning and made a lot of money and in some ways he represents the american idea. giamad ericks's character is ivy league and decided to took very little money to fight in the public's name. so he believes i'm doing wrong things. i think he should state out of my turf. >> it opens with a kinky sex scene. >> i knew you were going to watch the show. >> i'm not getting hooked on another drama. it started with that, and he said, there you go. i want to talk about your accent. how did you decide which new york accent you were going to do? >> generous of you. as long as i have some kind of new york accent. >> you do.
8:38 am
when i first took it, i thought, great i can do my job and bada, bada boom and it would be raunchy and fantastic and doing this the whole time using my hands a lot. and i did try that for about half a day and brian and david, the show's creators, took me to one side and said, this is fine, but it's not our show. so this guy is from yonkers, okay? so in the end, i decided the rhythms and the emphasis the way new york speaks with that and emphatic quality with pace and was the most important thing to latch on to, so i hope i've found that. >> andrew ross is a friend of a lot of people on this show. he did what? he wrote? >> andrew is a cocreator of the show and coexecutive producer. he gave access because of his ties with the financial
8:39 am
he had access to all of these guys. so it allowed brian and david to go and sit down with these guys and talk with them and create friendships, and use them as source material. >> are you going to be the next james bond? >> no. i could tell you but i'd have to kill you. >> would you like to? would you like that job? i think you would be great at it. >> james bond? >> yes. >> that is the multimillion dollar question. >> no. come on. you'd love to be james bond. >> look. when you're growing up as a kid, you know, if someone said to you would you like to be james bond? you would love to say you'd love for it to happen and would i ruin one of my heroes by playing it? >> i guess we will have to stay tuned. >> we and i think he is here to stay.
