goodbye, sugar. 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. ...better than a manual, and my hygienist says it does. but... ...they're not all the same. turns out, they're really... ...different. who knew? i had no idea. so, she said look for... ...one that's shaped like a dental tool with a round... ...brush head. go pro with oral-b.

characterize its severity of fracking on drinking waters but it does point to circumstances that can make groundwater vulnerable. it happens in seven zones three of them partially in texas. manuel bojorquez is in the dallas area to show us concerns of residents. >> reporter: good morning, this is elizabeth falconer's home. you may not notice anything about it until you walk into the garage. because this is where the family has installed a $30,000 water filtration system. the reason, falconer said she's had her water tested and it came back with chemical levels higher than the epa recommends. elizabeth falconer says the water in her waterford, texas, home is undrinkable, even with an expensive filter. how often do you have to get water? >> we probably go through two or three a week. >> reporter: after fracking
started in 2009, she claims her drinking water gave her heart papa operations and made her dizzy. is there a smoking gun, something that you can directly point to and say this is directly related to fracking? >> i'm not a scientist. i can only say this is a sequence in time compared with good water and bad water. >> reporter: in the report the epa complains how fracking can impact drinking water resources under some circumstances. but the agency can't say how severely. highly-pressurized water and chemicals are used in fracking to extract oil and gas from rock formations below the earth. chemically treated water is blasted down a wall. the process fractures the rock freeing the oil to move up to the surface. the government report notes concerns over well leaks and waste water aboveground. the agency didn't point to any damage related to the fracking itself. >> what we found is although the
overall incidence of impacts is low, that there are vulnerabilities. >> reporter: the epa is taking a tougher stance than ever before. the language in an earlier draft of the report downplaying fracking concerns was removed. it said, we did not find evidence that these mechanisms have led to widespread systemic impacts on drinking water resources." epa advisor tom burke explained. >> the gaps in information unfortunately do not allow us to say how much. what is the rate of the impact. so that sentence was removed. >> this is fearmongering at its worst. >> reporter: eric mollito says the report is disappointing. >> underlying data is strong and shows the technology is not creating widespread systemic impacts to the environment but the data is clear.
>> reporter: she is not anti-fracking, but wants it done properly. according to the energy information organization fracking accounts for 60% of this year's oil production. we have reached out to elizabeth lawyers but have not heard back. >> it's fascinating because fracking has led to our increased energy independence which is a good thing. 60% of domestic oil and gas production. with that, there are going to be more questions like this. >> worth looking into it. >> thank you. a notre dame basketball player gets the best christmas present ever. ahead, how his returning soldier brother pulled off the emotional surprise.,, good morning. it's definitely jacket weather again, but we don't have the freeze warnings like we had yesterday. we're reaching for the mid- to upper 50s, could see 50 degrees in the south bay. 56 for san rafael and san

but he who protects everything protects nothing. >> russia and turkey say the assassination was an attempt to disrupt their relationship, but it looks like an act of retribution for russia's air campaign in syria. >> donald trump won the electoral college. he suffered fewer defections than hillary clinton. there were scattered protests, but the result was never really in doubt. >> she's putting to rest some finality any prospects of a candidacy come 2020. >> john mccain criticized president obama yesterday, saying he had no strategy in dealing with russia's hacking. he has a strategy, all right. it is called running out the clock. let me see. i guess that would be your problem. >> i'm norah o'donnell with anthony mason and alex wagner. charlie and gayle are enjoying
some time off. police in berlin, germany, say they're not sure if they have the right man in custody after yesterday's terror attack. berlin's police chief says it is not clear if he was the one driving the truck. >> the tractor trailer rammed into a christmas market in berlin, killing 12 people and injuring dozens. eyewitnesses describe the scene of horror as the truck hit the packed market place. there is a suspect in custody, but he denies any involvement. charlie dagget is in berlin with the latest. good morning. >> good morning. it appears to be a major setback to the investigation of what happened here last night as you said. police quoted as saying the suspect they arrested may not be the driver of the truck. we're unable to confirm the man is the main us is picture. of course, that raises the question as to whether the person they're looking for may still be on the run. what we do know is around 8:00 last night, at this packed christmas fair, this truck came barreling in, down this road, veered off into the right, and
about 40 miles an hour, witnesses say, flattened some of the market stalls there. it was finally came to a stop, 12 people were killed, 50 more injured, the truck had polish license plated, trice etraced t the driver of the truck was found shot dead, but, again, the main headline at this hour is police are unable to confirm that the suspect they have in custody was the driver of the truck. alex? >> charlie dagget in berlin, thanks. the deadly attack came just hours after russia's ambassador to turkey was assassinated as he spoke at an art gallery in turkey's capital city ankara. a 22-year-old turkish police officer shot the ambassador in the back. he then waved his gun and shouted remember aleppo, remember syria. he apparently wanted revenge for russia's military and political support for the assad regime.
soon after, turkish security forces shot and killed the assassin. an ap photographer in the room took these photos. he said he only went there because the event was on the way home from his office. he said that after the shots, people screamed, hid behind columns and under tables and lay on the floor. i was afraid and confused but found partial cover behind a wall and did my job taking photographs. the assassination comes a week after thousands rallied in turkey protesting moscow's support for the syrian regime. russian air strikes helped government regain control of the city of aleppo at a heavy humanitarian cost. fran townsend is a former homeland security adviser to president george w. bush. good morning. >> good morning. >> what do you make of the platest development in berlin that the man they had in custody who they thought was a suspect may now not be involved. >> it is important we remind viewers, this is not an isolated incide incident. we saw the threat warning from the state department, we have
seen an increase in security in brussels, in london, in paris. and so this comes on the heels of just last week, christmas market in southwest germany. a 12-year-old boy planted a nail bomb. there has been a history, you know, just this year of these sorts of attacks. this is reminiscent of the nice attack, but germany, since they had refugees come in, have seen increase in the last year of a 17-year-old afghan girl with an ax attack on a train, 27-year-old syrian with a backpack bomb in germany. all this year. so i think it is going to put enormous pressure on the merkel government to get to the bottom of this. we understand from investigators that just this morning at an airport refugee camp they did some searches in an effort to further the investigation. >> fran, in terms of lone wolf attacks, those in and of themselves hard to prevent, but lone wolf attacks as a weapon,
it is a common item like a vehicle. how difficult is this for security services? >> near impossible. you're not focused on sort of disrupting it via finding the weapon or taking the weapon away from the individual, you focus your intelligence efforts on identifying the individuals. where it is a lone wolf, there are very few indicators. as investigators say the flash to bang, from the moment the individual decides until they commit the attack is very short. look at the germany christmas market. we believe from investigators he stole the lori, killed the driver, and then just used the truck to plow it into this christmas market. that very short window is near impossible for investigators to get in the middle of. >> what is fascinating to me is the intelligence. the state department last month issues a warning about potential attacks at christmas related events. does this suggest that there could be an uptick of this in many different places? >> i think that's right.
look at that very threat warning you referred to, it is clear that there is some intelligence driving the state department's warning that particularly in europe during this christmas period, and so we ought to remind people as they travel for the holidays and these christmas markets are quite beautiful and they're a real tourist attraction to be very careful about their surroundings, to understand where they are, where would you exit, if you had to leave in a hurry, where would you meet your other -- those travelers that you're with? >> what about here at home? >> you know, we had john miller on this morning. we're not hearing there is specific intelligence here in the united states. but as always, we have -- it seems we have this conversation in a post 9/11 world every holiday season where there are large public gatherings, a particular vulnerability. >> what do cities do? >> look at new york. at new year's eve. they have the most extraordinary perimeter security where there are layers upon layers and each one of those layers as you -- as revelers enter is another
opportunity for law enforcement to disrupt an attack. >> be vigilant. >> exactly. >> fran townsend, always good to see you, thank you so much. no terror group has taken responsibility for the attack in berlin, but president-elect trump blamed islamic terrorists. he said, isis and other islamic terrorists continually slaughter christians in their communities in places of worship, as part of their global jihad. these terrorists must be eradicated from the face of the earth. mr. trump was officially elected president of the united states yesterday. members of the electoral college cast their ballots in all 50 states and the district of columbia. despiteed protests, he received 304 electoral votes. the fashion world is remembering legendary model gina machado. she died on long island. she broke fashion barriers. she was first noncaucasian model featured in a major american

so means maybe some of the sex hormones is helping the brain shape. >> it's not complicated by stress or sleep deprivation, or do we know? >> we don't really know. there are others that play into, dietary and other stress. and it's a couple months after birth so there is a window of time that could affect the brain. but they did not see the changes in the men. >> what are the long-range implications of this, do you think? >> it opens up the door. this is a first of its kind first-time study. and may be able to predict which women may be at risk for postpartum depression which is really important if you suffer from that. >> interesting. >> i'm glad the men did so well. >> yeah, right. >> maybe your brain would be different. >> i think not. prince harry gets emotional as he talks about the death of his mother, princess diana. ahead, why he said he feels an
