break down the best places to immerse yourself in the spirit of the season. we begin with this morning's top story. president-elect donald trump's controversial call with a break as one of its provinces. errol barnett is in our washington bureau with the latest. >> reporter: good morning. china's foreign minister today described this controversial call as a little trick by taiwan. the chinese government has already contacted the obama white house to file an official omplaint. meanwhile, the president-elect and his transition team are on defense, deflecting criticism and experiencing the delicacy of diplomacy.
no u.s. president-elect has head with taiwan since diplomatic ties were severed in 1979 until friday. mr. trump's transition team said the two discussed the close economic political and security ties between taiwan and the united states. and that president ying-wen congratulated the president-elect on his victory. after hearing criticisms, mr. trump tweeted the president of taiwan called me today, pointing out inconsistencies in u.s. dealings with taiwan. mr. trump continued, interesting how the u.s. sells billions of dollars of military equipment but i should not accept a congratulatory call? >> i think president-elect trump may not be fully aware of all the details of the history of our relations with taiwan. >> reporter: an expert on u.s./china relations, bonnie glazer said it exists because of the 1972 one china policy, a u.s. agreement to accept the island nation of taiwan as part
of china's territory and not a sovereign nation. >> the notion that the united states and incoming president of the u.s. might be supporting a pro-independence agenda will be very, very worry some. >> reporter: they say mr. trump intengs to intentionallily take the call. during the campaign, mr. trump accused china of waging economic war on the u.s. through currency manipulation. >> we can't continue to allow china to rape our can you not and that is what they are doing. >> reporter: but also promised better relations with the communist government. >> i have a great relationship with china. made a lot of money dealing with china. china is terrific. >> reporter: upon hearing of the call, the white house said there has been no change of their longstanding policy on cross-trade issues and they are firmly committed to the one
china policy. alex? >> errol barnett in washington, thank you. the president-elect finds himself on the receiving end of criticism from one of his biggest supporters. former alaska governor sarah palin took aim at the deal mr. trump announced on thursday, one that will keep hundreds of manufacturing jobs at a carrier air-conditioner plant in indiana. in an op-ed for the website young conservatives, palin hints that the deal is, quote, crony capitalism and she writes when the government steps in arbitrarily favoring one over another. >> carrier will receive $7 million in state tax incentives and the company will keep 800 people working at the plant that had planned to move the jobs to mexico. >> earlier this morning mr. trump tweeted rexnord is moving
to mexico and firing all of its 300 workers. this is happening all over our country. no more. are rexnord manufactures ball bearings. it said it would close the indianapolis plant and moving the jobs to mexico. >> for more we are joined by phillip bump. good morning. >> good morning, sir. >> let's talk about this controversial call as it's being called. is this a major breach of diplomatic protocol? >> yeah. it's a fairly huge one, right? for decade we have seen partisans on both sides that have worked with administrations that have advanced a very particular policy on this touchy issue of china and taiwan's relationship that essentially was thrown out the window by this call by donald trump. he says he took a call. they say they reached out to him and not clear what happens in situations like this. donald trump is new to government and new to these sorts of international relations.
there is some question if he is trying to make his stamp between the united states and china before restrained by part of the government. it's not clear. >> it's worth noting this is coming during a week mr. trump made several calls to the president of the philippines dutera, the prime minister of pakistan also. what does that signal about donald trump's foreign policy? >> this is the question. is this donald trump sort of freelancing and acting off the cuff and not understanding the ramifications of what he is doing or the -- i think is interesting is this him trying to reset how america stages itself in the world before he had his round as secretary of state nominee or by members of the state department. it's not clear which of those is happening but it's certainly, though, this is a break from where the united states has been not only for the administration of barack obama, but for administrations going back to decade. >> we are waiting for the secretary of state nominee and we have heard additional names this week. david petraeus joined the list
and rudy giuliani and bob corker and mitt romney. where does that stand. >> trump pledges he will have most of if not all of his nominees out next week so interesting to see where this goes. i think one of the key questions for all of these cabinet positions, for all of these nominees is the extent to which, yes, they will be managing the day-to-day administration of each of these branches of the executive branch. but to what extent will they guide what the administration is doing broadly. that is the question. if it's a mitt romney that becomes secretary of state can he change donald trump's mind on things like what the u.s. has always done in a relationship to china? not clear that he can. >> autonomy influence is a huge question. we know the president-elect announced his pick for the defense secretary of state general james mattis calling him the closest thing we have to general george patton. the armed forces is supposed to be led by a civilian. how much of a concern when it comes to general mattis?
>> it has been cited by gillibrand of new york. it will be run by a civilian which is commander in chief donald trump but this has been policy a long period of time in part to avoid the appearance of having a military run government. that said, i think that mattis is generally perceived by people who observe these sorts of things as a good pick, as someone who can do this job well and do it effectively and we have already seen that donald trump has cited mattis as having pushed back on him on the issue of torture, for example, which i think for people who are worried about trump's relationship with his cabinet is a good sign. >> mattis may, indeed, be an olive branch in a weird way. phillip bump, thank you for your time. tomorrow morning on "face the nation," the guests include republican national committee reince priebus and leon panetta and former speaker of the house newt gingrich and newly re-elected how democratic leader nancy pelosi. jury deliberations will resume monday in the murder
trial of a former south carolina police charged of shooting a black motorists to death two years ago. michael slagr is accused of shooting walter scott five times in the back when scott fled a traffic stop in north charleston. the jury appears deadlocked after deliberating 16 hours over three days. activists in new orleans are calling for an independent investigation intor why the gun was released without any charges being filed. omar villafranca reports. >> reporter: two people frantically tried and failed to save joe mcknight's life with cpr after he was shot three times in a busy intersection in suburban new orleans. 54-year-old ronald gasser waited
for police to show up and admitted shooting mcknight. jefferson parish sheriff norman. >> mr. gasser did not stand over mr. mcknight and fire shots into him. mr. gasser was in his vehicle when he fired three shots. >> reporter: gasser was questioned and released a few hours later without being charged. sheriff norman wouldn't say exactly why but said there were statutes that provide defenses for certain crimes. gasser's release outraged local activists, including local naacp president tailylor spiller. you think he should be in jail? >> he should be in jail now. he shouldn't be free. if he was a black man, a man of color, we all know that we see this every day on the news, he would not. >> reporter: gasser could have his day in court. the sheriff's office is still talking with the district attorney about possible charges. but for now, they are still
gathering more evidence. for "cbs this morning: saturday," omar villafranca, harvey, louisiana. victims displaced by a deadly wildfire in eastern tennessee this week are finally being allowed to return to their homes and businesses to assess the damage. the fire devastated the tour community of gatlinburg. at least 13 people were killed. this morning, anger is building towards local officials. some say they waited too long to order an evacuation. demarco morgan is in sevierville north of gatlin burg. >> reporter: a home leveled by those raging wildfires. as officials expect the death toll to rise. the lines were long and cars were backed up in traffic for hours as thousands of residents and business owners, for the first time, were allowed back into the small town of gatlinburg. they were in a rush to check on
their property after one of the state's worst wildfires left more than 1,000 homes and businesses destroyed and more than a dozen dead. here is one of the lucky ones who found his family cabin intact. >> we were lucky. i don't know how that could happen with the devastation all the around it. >> reporter: terry calhoun was not so fortunate. he and his family had just relocated from lakeland, florida, and had been living in the small one-room apartment for a year. >> this was our bed. >> reporter: the family had no other choice but to get out when wildfires took over their street. >> we found out late what was happening and the tv went down and phones went down. when we went outside, everything around us was on fire. >> reporter: at a friday news conference, the county mayor said whether the evacuation
calls should have been made sooner. >> we are not getting into that right now. we did the best and we are sorry for that but not get into monday morning quarterbacking now. >> reporter: calhoun's family yelled for their cat but couldn't find him. friday afternoon, calhoun would seen with his own eyes he lost everything, but to his surprise the cat appeared to be okay. he was hiding in the attic. >> i thought he was dead. i was in the bathroom back there and called his name and he started meow'ing at me. >> reporter: the family has no insurance and in need for a place to stay, but he still has his family and hope for a better tomorrow. >> pictures and the cat. i'll be happy. >> reporter: many of the businesses that were not heavily impacted have started to reopen their doors to customers. and the town of gatlinburg expects to be back open to the public by wednesday. alex? >> demarco morgan in tennessee, thanks for that. there is breaking news
overnight from oakland, california. firefighters are battling a large warehouse fire and unclear whether people may be trapped inside the building. an official says a party was being held there. no word on the cause of the blaze. five-year civil war in syria that left 500,000 dead may be reaching a turning point. this morning, russia's foreign minister said russia is ready for talks with the u.s. on a rebel pullout from the besieged city of alepaleppo. they say groups with the help of russia have captured 60% of the syria that was held by the rebels but it comes with a staggering cost. debora patta is in aleppo. >> reporter: good morning. we are here in ahanono which recently was held by rebels. just five days ago, it was taken by government forces. for the most part, people who were living here throughout the war have now fled to make-shift
shelters in government-controlled areas. there's not much left here. mostly bombed-out buildings. some families seek shelter there, huddling around fires for warmth. after days of bombing, it was retaken by the syrian military and provides a measure of safety, now that the shelling has stopped. these children have grown up with this war. 13-year-old amalwas telling me how she stopped going to school two years ago. when a shell landed in the distance, she barely flinches. did you hear that explosion? does it bother you? it's all too familiar to even worry about. on a bus bound for another newly reclaimed neighborhood wisha told her 2-year-old that she held her tightly and who is scared in the rebel territory,
she told us. we had only rice every two days, she said. and now i need to get warm clothes. after five days in the shelter, everyone is desperate to get back home. but the neighborhood is a waste land. with the rebels gone, at least the residents won't suffer the daily bombings from the syrian and russian forces but that relief has come at a terrible cost. over the next feud, it's hoped that many civilians will return here to pick up the broken pieces of their lives. debora patta, cbs news, aleppo. time to show you some of the morning's headlines from around the globe. the "los angeles times" reports a male student at the university of southern california campus is under arrest in connection with the fatal stabbing of a psychology professor. police identified the victim in friday's attack as bosco jan. the name of the suspect has not been released. police describe the attack as a personal dispute.

and, you know, so what world would you see a drug dealer teaching a boy how to swim? >> that's right. >> our playwright who wrote the source material, rob mccrany, shared the story several times about the drug dealer, the person who this character was based on, teaching him how to ride a bike. and those are the stories, those are the moments that those qualities, those things are some of the things that people need to hear about and know about some of these people. >> as a mother, it was very painful to watch this young boy whose mother was on drugs and he was alone. >> yes. >> except for the character you play kind of mentors him a bit. really painful to see what he went through. bullied at school. >> yes. you know, we definitely touch on persecution and some of these hings that make it so much more difficult.
struggling with sexuality, so some of these things that make it that much more difficult for people to accept and embrace who they are and live life on their terms. one of the things we do hope the film does is, by the end of it, it creates a opening, a short of shaft of light for empathy so when you see other people who you believe that, at first, you can't identify with, that perhaps because of this movie that it would kind of help people see the commonalities of us all. >> did house of cards and your performance have anything to do with getting this role? >> it sort of helps as a hinderance for me getting this role. i worked with the director on another project. i played a character on another project of from a similar role and barry knew me from "house of cards." when she pitched me in the idea of the role, he said he is a little too straight-laced. >> that's why it's called acting! ,,

correspondent dr. jon lapook and cbs news contributor dr. tara narula. we get closer to winter, many americans might think zika is slowing down. however, in texas this week that appears not to be the case. the texas department of health announced they are dealing what might be the first clas of loas locally transmitted of zika. every state in the continental u.s. has had travel associated case. what do we think the response to this is going to be? >> this does not come as a surprise. we expected this. it's the area of the country where this mosquito can still breed. the type of weather is warm. it's also in close proximity to mexico where there is travel across the border. we know mexico has active cases. what the plan is basically for cdc, local, state health officials to figure out are there any other cases beds this female case that they found. how and where did she get it?
cher investigating that by looking at her home and testing urine samples from neighbors and also capturing sqooee ining sqos and testing them and telling people how to prevent the disease and remove possible breeding grounds for the mosquitoes. >> jon, we are hearing about new research that details brain abnormal its that may develop after birth. what can you tell us about that? >> we were told by the public health officials expect the microcephaly with the severelily small head to be the tip of the iceberg and in fact, that has turned out to be true. there is a report from the cdc of 13 infants who were born. they seem to have normal-sized heads at birth and then over time, the heads stop growing normally. then also as they look more closely, they see problems with their vision, with their hearing and other problems. it is the tip of the iceberg. it's an evolving situation and we have to keep watching very closely to see what will this turn into. >> the world health organization
said recently that zika is no longer classified as a public health emergency of international concern. what are we supposed to take from that? >> we are supposed to take this as a change in language and definition. but this is not a downgrading of the importance or seriousness of this problem. and the world health organization is basically saying they need to change their strategy at this point. make a technical plan how to deal with this on a long-term basis. in february when they made that declaration, that was at a time when we were seeing cases of zika and microcephaly and we didn't know if they were related. the olympics on the horizon and now a better understanding bottom line we still need more research funding aggressive approach towards this. the problem is that a lot of public health experts say that by changing this definition, may have a psychological impact so governments and donors may not put as much funding in and people may not take as many precautions they need to against this disease at a time when we are seeing expanding cases in asia and americas we don't have
a vaccine and it's also about to be summer in the southern hemisphere. >> continue to it seriously. moving on to the next topic. a remarkable new study on the use of hallucinogenic drugs in medicine. published this week in an article, it looked at the impact of the mind altering compound psilocybin on cancer patients and dealing with anxiety and depress. psilocybin is found what is commonly known as psychedelic mushrooms. jon took a look. >> reporter: after diana was treated for owe vvarian cancer next two years were filled with dread. >> all i felt is the cancer could come back and i would die with it. >> reporter: how severe was the anxiety? were you able to go on with your life? >> i felt it was destroying my life. >> reporter: in 2012, she entered a study to treat anxiety of cancer patients using a h hallucinogenic drug known as
psilocybin. this doctor led the study. >> the idea was that drugs which are known to induce spiritual or these unusual mystical stages of consciousness might help people who were having this domain of distress. >> reporter: basser took the medication in this treatment room with therapists present for support. during the session, she saw her fear. inside her body. >> and as soon as i visualized the fear, i became furious! in my mind, i screamed, who the hell do you think you are? i won't be eaten alive. from that moment, the fear was gone. >> reporter: you took control? >> i took control and it was gone. >> reporter: the nyu study and the second one that johns hopkins followed a total of 80 patients for six months after a single dose of psilocybin. there was lasting reduction of anxiety and depression in 60% to 80% of the patients. >> i began to feel the most
amazing love i have ever felt. i think my brain was rewired a little bit and that love that i felt has done very well, very good things for me. >> jon, that is fascinating stuff. there seems to be a huge field of research? >> yes. there are so many drugs that were banned as part of the war on drugs. now we are seeing research into the use of marijuana for various conditions. the fda just approved ecstasy a trial to look for ptsd and now the use of psilocybin. good we can have careful studies for years. we have had our arms hand cuffed behind our back and say we can do research and now the arms in front and do careful research and these have risks and benefits. >> it's not easing the mental suffering but we know how important your mindset is to treating the physical aspects of disease so to offer patients another option is great. >> talking to her was remarkable. >> the story is incredible. >> you can see it in her face.
great. thank you both. this week, president-elect trump announced he would be leaving his business empire to focus on the white house. but that simple statement leads to complex questions for a business tycoon with projects and deals the world over. we will take a deeper look at the conflicts between the trump brand and the trump presidency next. you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday." there is no typical day. there is nothing typical about making movies. i'm victoria alonso and i'm an executive producer... ...at marvel studios. we are very much hands-on producers. if my office... ...becomes a plane or an airport the surface pro's perfect. fast and portable but also light. you don't do this 14 hours a day, 7 days a week for... ...decades if you don't feel it in your heart. listen, i know my super power is to not ever sleep. that's it. that's the only super power i have.

the nation and the presidency have never seen anything like. . a president-elect with massive deals and ongoing business interests all across the globe. >> now many are concerned about donald trump's potential conflicts of interest. something trump says he'll address in a news conference later this month. cbs news senior business analyst jill schlesinger joins for us a look what is at stake and what can be done to reassure the president. jill, the president-elect says he knows it's visually important to avoid conflicts of interest.
what can be done? we are hearing about a blind trust? do you think that might happen? >> here is the best case scenario. if he could, he would sell his interests in every single thing he has ownership in. so that would mean not just the actual physical hotels but all of the llcs that own the property or the licensing rights and the proceeds of that sale would be put in something called a blind trust where you have a third-party basically managing your money and can only have certain kind of investments in there, usually government bond or preapproved mutual fund and the best case scenario that it could literally shield him from any impropriety. he says that is a tough thing. he says i own physical structures and my name is on these buildings and virtually impossible. i think the next best thing is maybe a monitor, a third-party ethics monitor to be watching to see how he is doing business to really make sure that there is
no appearance of a conflict or an actual conflict. >> under u.s. law he is exempt from conflict of interest rules essentially, right? so, i mean, he is not mandated to do anything or is he? >> he is not mandated but there is this weird clause in the constitution, a clause which essentially was put in place to try to prevent the president from being bought by a foreign leader. and in that case, which what you're really trying to say if a foreign leader or someone associated with a foreign leader is giving you money for a good or a service, even if it's at arm's length, if you profit from it, you actually shouldn't take it. so this is squishy, okay, guys? a lot of people who say you have to go a long way before you got to that place. but i think, again, because we could see a case where, hey, a foreign leader would maybe approve a deal for a trump apartment complex somewhere. that could start to seem like you're profiting from that.
are you now in direct conflict with that clause? >> well, this is grossly complicated by the fact his name is on the building. his children have been thus far very involved in all of his business dealings. we don't know what role they will play going forward and the fact that donald trump still has not released his tax returns so we are unclear how the web of finances work. >> i think that is really important because here is what we know. we know he had conversations with, say, 29 world leaders since the election, right? and 8 of those leader, he had direct business in those places. we know he has business connections in at least 20 countries but it's opec. we don't have the tax returns. we have a filing with the fec which he made in the spring is really what a lot of journalists are using now to track this really weird web of business but, frankly, we don't know how far it extend. you mentioned the kids. i know he has said i'm just going to let my kid run this but think about your own family.
anyone who has been in a family business says, you know, i don't work in the business but everyone talks about the business and if he is talking about the business and they are talking about the business, it's hard to see where the lines are not getting blurred. i think that is why there is a lot of ethics professionals from both sides of the aisle, from previous presidencies who are saying, this is just not good. we have got to figure out something here to at least mitigate the problem. >> all eyes will be on donald trump december 15th to find out exactly what the plan is. jill, thanks for coming on board. >> thank you. some of the most influential women of our time captured on film by a photographer who is a legend in her own right. ahead a new exhibition of intimate photographs from annie leibovitz, where even the gallery space has special meaning. you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday." ♪ >> announcer: this portion sponsored by toyota.

>> when macarthur arrived in australia in 1942 he did not land as a hero. he was forced to flee the philippines with his family and issuing his famous promise, "i shall return." but not for two years. was he sort of licking his wounds? >> he was definitely licking his wounds. >> reporter: walt wrote this just released book "macarthur at war." how does a general on a losing streak and end of world war ii someone extremely popular throughout the country? >> macarthur fills the need in american psyche to a hero. to macarthur's credit by the time 1944 comes along, he is doing a lot of island hopping and he is really bought into the whole concept of air power. he is doing miraculous amphibious landings all over. he doesn't evolve as military commander. >> reporter: three-quarters of a century later, marines are deployed into the northern australia city of darwin for
training. a sign that adele cats tells "cbs this morning: saturday" of an enduring partnership. >> i think that the collaboration that occurred with u.s. troops in world war ii under general macarthur certainly has laid the groundwork for the u.s. and australian joint operations that exist now. >> reporter: today, macarthur's legacy lives on here in other ways. his old headquarters building has been named after him. there is an apple store on the ground floor next to macarthur central, a mall. in greater brisbane, streets, roads, drives and circles and bus stops named after the general who still touches 84-year-old resident dale hicks. >> that is arthur. you can just see me over there. and this is me. >> reporter: hicks played with arthur macarthur, the general's son, while the family lived in brisbane. >> dear dale. arthur wants me to send you this little note to tell you how much he misses you.
>> reporter: general macarthur's wife sent the hicks family a letter after they left. she has kept it 71 years. >> i think mrs. macarthur was a charming woman. i always remember the general had lovely soft hand, because one day, he took arthur's hand and my hand and we went down the hall singing little songs. >> reporter: how many letters did you exchange with macarthur? ron reed says macarthur gave him this lieutenant's pen when he was just 6 years old and this letter, after a chance reunion in new york over tea 20 years later. reese is now a volunteer at the macarthur museum. >> some small manner of repaying the united states and our allies and what they did for me. >> reporter: despite that and his status one of the most famous generals in u.s. history, macarthur apparently never let go of certain insecurities. >> instead he has josh.
>> reporter: as john mcwright tells us back in his office. >> you expect the u.s. president of the day franklin roosevelt up there. he made the comment he wasn't going to have a republican looking down on him. >> he was a republican? >> he was a republican probably with ambitions to the 1944 presidential nomination. >> on december 2nd, 1945, he accepted japan's surrender on on the deck of the "uss missouri." he told people in a radio address. >> we must go forward to preserve in peace what we won in war. >> for "cbs this morning: saturday," mark albert, brisbane, australia. >> wow. i love that the woman said he had lovely, soft hands! >> i don't think the general would have been happy about that little piece of trivia. >> from down under, we kind of

t-shirt on? >> i was so excited and showing my wife how it doesn't come off and doesn't come undone. >> reporter: tom patterson and his wife erin launched the company eight years ago. to get the shirts into the department stores, patterson turned his technique to underwear. it's a plot twist that earned him a very influential customer. >> so we had an employee come up to me, tom, tom, kevin hart is dancing around in our underwear on instagram. she shows me on my phone. that is pretty school use you're a customer and bought the product at a department store? ." on the road and we are in the store. and i'm like, man, i just need some underwear. i'm out. last thing you want on the road is a dirty dude and flip your underwear inside/out. i put these on and said these are so soft! no, they are soft. i'm going to get them. >> with 95 million social media
followers and upwards of 87 million dollars in earnings last year from movies and stand-up, hart has become one of the most influential people in the world. but the self-described authentic comedian wanted to be less show and more business. >> some people can just be nascar, nascar. i mean, you got stickers all over you. or at some point in time people can see through that. >> these are the '90s. >> reporter: celebrity endorsement made men's underwear trendy in the early '90s but hart wanted to be an investor, not just an ad man. at first, patterson wasn't sold on the idea. did you like that, that they weren't really looking for you? >> i had to convince them. i had to convince them that i was a good idea which made me mad because i was a big deal at the time. i was a real big deal at the time so i didn't like the fact i had to convince him this is the way to go. i had to explain to him i just want to be a part of what i love. i honestly love your brand and that's when i said, let me put
my money where my mouth is. let me invest in your products so you can see how serious i am. >> there is a lot of money being invested in men's undergarments these days. it's become a multibillion dollar industry with start-ups from coast-to-coast, including these in los angeles. >> every month we have new designs. >> reporter: jonathan launched his company as an online only subscription service for men in 2011. his undies from a beach tree in austria. the elastic fibers in italy. the company has sold more than 3 million pairs. >> i felt there was a disconnect what was deemed as premium wasn't, indeed, premium. i really wanted to set out to create a more affordable product that is extremely ghrvel acomfo and a brand that resonated with people. >> these days they offer al
carte. how does a guy from finance to underwear? >> i guess i had a mid-life crisis. >> reporter: he left a career in banking for boxers. >> to make it easier for the customer, we have really categorized all of our color. classic meaning bold, navy, gray. things you can wear every day. bold meaning purple, bright colors, pinks, greens, et cetera. and adventurous is where we go wild. i'm wearing all black and i wear simple on the outside out on inside, only i know today i'm wearing pink doughnuts! >> reporter: back at tommy john, they are celebrating their 2 million pair sold and they have 57 employees including a seven person design and development team solving problems like a more efficient fly and other touchy subjects. >> talking about a quick draw fly. a no wedgy guarantee. these are problems that guys have. every other brand has been scared to talk about or not comfortable talking about. >> reporter: do we not know that our underwear could be better and more comfortable?
do you have to teach the consumer that? >> that's a great question. when he says no wedgy guarantee, you don't think about things like that when you go through a day you didn't pick a wedgy one time. you're going, wait a minute! normally at 2:00, i'm taking wedgies! it's 3:30 i haven't picked a wedgy yet. what could i have on? >> that comes a cost with trunks averaging $30 and undershirts ho eds. >> you have to find sewing partners and fabric partners that can really bring this idea into a product and it's typically more expensive. >> reporter: what is the reaction you get from people when they see the pricing of your garments? >> i would say the most common reaction, wow that is expensive but once they put it on, price usually becomes an after-thought. over 60% of our customers come back and buy an item again once they purchase. >> reporter: according to patterson and hart, when the curtain comes down, it all comes
down to comfort. >> when you put on a different pair of underwear and you put them on, oh, man! i feel good in these! and not only do i feel good but i look good! i have a droop in the butt and waist band got a little loose after i put them on. this is different! is this how it's supposed to be? what if it is? you know what? i want to feel like this everyday. >> those are the most inspiring words i've ever heard about underwear. >> i was thinking the same thing. >> the amount of hart's investment hasn't been disclosed but the company says he has a meaningful equity stake which makes him a partner and co-owner of the company. >> jamie wax, thank y america t especially bright during the holiday season. just ahead, travel editor peter greenberg takes us to some of

i'm hall of famer jerry west and my life is basketball. but that doesn't stop my afib from leaving me at a higher risk of stroke. that'd be devastating. i took warfarin for over 15 years until i learned more about once-daily xarelto... a latest generation blood thinner. then i made the switch. xarelto® significantly lowers the risk of stroke in people with afib not caused by a heart valve problem. it has similar effectiveness to warfarin. warfarin interferes with vitamin k and at least six blood clotting factors. xarelto® is selective targeting one critical factor of your body's natural clotting function. 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. 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. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems. to help protect yourself from a stroke, ask your doctor about xarelto. there's more to know. xarelto.
