but they cannot give the quality care -- customer care that we give. at great healthworks, when a customer calls, you're calling a customer-care person at great healthworks. they're knowledgeable. but that way, we control the experience of the product. >> announcer: hundreds of thousands of people around the world are enjoying better health today because of the difference omega xl has made in their lives. this natural anti-inflammatory comes from the green-lipped mussel, grown in the marlborough sound of new zealand, the cleanest waters in the world. >> the key to the wathat we process things is we manage the temperature, we manage the storage chain, we know the chemistry we're looking for, and we make really sure that we're getting the right chemistry to the consumer. i cannot say that any of the people who are selling seafood mussels are gonna be concerned about the same thing. you may cook it in a way or deal with it in a way that simply destroys that bioactivity, so not only are you taking a dozen mussels, you may be getting no benefit. so, the certain way of getting the benefit is to take a
capsule, and that's so convenient. it's a tiny, little capsule. it's dead easy to take, and you can be sure about what the outcome will be. so, there's no doubt at all in my mind that taking omega-3 every day is a very good way of ensuring that, for well people, that they stay well, and for people who aren't well, that they get better. there's so much evidence that that's the case. and if you're gonna do that, why not take the best? omega xl is the best. >> announcer: omega xl is a one-of-a-kind, powerful omega-3 oil that helps to reduce inflammation associated with joint pain, arthritis, bronchial tightness, and more. omega xl is the ultimate natural solution in great health and well-being. >> i was ready to pretty much try anything 'cause i was sore. i was real sore. i didn't want to be weighed down by pain. i didn't want to -- i didn't want to accept it that i was getting older and that pain was starting to take over. so, with omega xl -- i fully believe in omega xl.
it allows me to sleep better. it allows me to be more a part of each and every day. i have clarity and focus like i haven't had before. >> i'm on my feet 10 hours a day at least. i had knee surgery like four years ago. there was a lot of inflammation after the surgery. i was in so much pain, tears were coming to my eyes. that's how much pain i was in. and, well, you know, my knee is bending so much better now, and that inflammation is going away, and that is because of omega xl. >> so, inflammation's the culprit? >> it's the culprit, and then it makes the joint unstable, and then that makes it worse. and it's like a snowball rolling downhill. all of a sudden, the condition just gets worse and worse. so, if we can control inflammation -- and omega xl has been shown to be 100 times more powerful than other fish oils in controlling the inflammation -- we can control the pain and the disability and actually help maintain a healthier joint. >> it's everyday life. people that drive trucks, firemen, people that stand on
their feet all day, women who are hair dressers -- whatever you do, we're overusing our bodies. we're living longer, and we're wearing our joints out faster because we're more involved with sports at a later age -- golfing, lower-back inflammation, so it's part of our lives that is causing these problems. >> can you tell me from your experience how omega xl has improved people's lives? >> by the hundreds of thousands. i'll start with you. when we started to talk about you doing this program, you said, "i want to send it to family and friends." >> correct. >> and how did that work out? >> worked out terrific. i used to -- when i got up in the morning to put on my socks, to bend over to put them on, i used to have -- it was really pain. i dot have it anymore. >> now, this is not a music show. this is not a sports show. this is a show about pain care, so when someone watches this program, either they have pain or someone they know has pain. and here's a very powerful and frightening statistic. today, there are 60 million women between 40 and 60 who are
acting as caregivers to their mothers. and the daughter, from 40 to 60, is using their body up, having more pain prematurely, at a younger age than ever before. you have 100 million people in the u.s. today over 50 years old. and in a few short years, you'll have 70 million people over 65. inflammation is going to play a devastating role in our society unless you can control it. >> announcer: if you've been living in pain and you're tired of trying products that just don't work, you are not alone. today, 1.5 billion people worldwide are living in chronic pain. don't let pain deny you the life you deserve. join hundreds of thousands of omega xl users that have chosen to fight inflammation and get rid of pain. now they're living life to the fullest, thanks to omega xl -- the all-natural anti-inflammatory that has more available omega-3s than regular fish oil. >> i would not go without omega xl, because it's made a huge impact in my daily life. >> i want to tell everybody.
i'm telling you about it. i'm telling you about something that's gonna change your life if you'll try it. >> announcer: if you're living in pain, listen up. every day, people suffer from symptoms including back, neck, knee, and joint pain. studies have proven that inflammation is the culprit, but now you can fight it with omega xl. as part of the show, we are extending a special offer. call and we'll double your order. don't miss the opportunity to regain control of your life. there's no financial risk. omega xl offers a 90-day money-back guarantee. you have nothing to lose. time's running out. call now. >> how does it help, doctor, arthritis or chronic pain? >> it actually affects 53 different pathways that cause inflammation in your body, and in that regard, it's unique. i mean, osteoarthritis, which affects, currently, 50 million americans is the wear-and-tear arthritis, and as
we get older, we're gonna have more symptoms and more disability due to that condition. but it comes from a small injury in the joint or maybe a sports injury in the joint that creates inflammation. >> all right, how about people who are allergic to things like shellfish, yeah. >> they're actually allergic to the protein in the shellfish. we extract all the protein, all the carbohydrate, and all of the sodium. so this is an allergy-free omega-3. there's nothing like it. >> doctor, have you had any personal experience with your patients, results that they had with the product? >> i've had consistently great results with everyone that i've tried the product with. it is just unbelievable for back pain, back-pain relief. it's very effective in reducing the symptoms associated with arthritis, and we treat a lot of arthritis in our clinic. >> your patients are happy with it. >> my patients are happy with it, and it's easy for them to take. and i can honestly say, before i
knew about this product, i would recommend fish oil, but, i mean, they just couldn't take it, because of the side effects -- the dyspepsia and the size of the pill. so i'm hopeful that, really, everybody would try this product, and i think that it would improve the health of anyone who would take it. >> i'm 57 years old, and i've tried a lot of products. i've been in the fitness industry for over 36 years. before taking omega xl, i would have a really hard time with my elbows, and i thought that was just because of age. but after taking omega xl, it started to reduce the swelling, and now i feel no pain at all. my recovery period and my stamina has increased tenfold. >> i wish that they had omega xl 30 years ago when i first got arthritis. i've been now playing golf, and i noticed great effects from being able to do that, and i'm able to exercise after 25 years of not being able to exercise. >> what i had do was go out and buy every known bottle opener, jar opener.
never, never got this particular lingonberry jam open. and today... here you are. >> announcer: all these stories are from people that have experienced the benefits of omega xl. 25 years of clinical studies have proven that omega xl has far better benefits than ordinary fish oils. this is due to omega xl's source, the green-lipped mussel. this mussel is farmed in the purest waters in the world, the marlborough sound in new zealand. once harvested, it goes through a patented super-critical co2-extraction process. this unique process allows omega xl to have 22 times the fatty-acid availability and makes it more powerful than regular fish oils. therefore, omega xl is more effective at reducing inflammation, the cause of pain. you don't need to suffer anymore. omega xl will help you get rid of pain and live the life you deserve. >> and, you know, doctor, i'm
involved with cardiac health, having had the problems myself. i have my foundation. how can omega xl help reduce the risk of heart attacks? >> 30 years of studies that have shown the benefits of omega-3s for reducing plaque formation on the arteries, which actually clog the arteries and cause heart attacks and strokes. it actually helps to reduce triglyceride levels, which are an independent-risk factor, which put people at risk for heart disease. so i recommend omega xl to all of my patients to help protect their hearts, preserve their heart and vascular health. >> ken, omega xl seems to be a life-changing product. >> omega xl is a one-of-a-kind omega-3. there's nothing like it. we believe it's the most powerful omega-3 on the face of the planet, which offers tremendous anti-inflammatory benefits. you have hundreds of people, hundreds of family and, we call them employees, but associates at great healthworks today so proud that you're here to
help us with our message. >> oh, i'm very proud to be part of it, 'cause it is -- it's wonderful being associated with this and wonderful having you and wonderful meeting you. there's the number. >> announcer: hundreds of thousands of people around the world are enjoying better health today because of the difference omega xl has made in their lives. this natural anti-inflammatory comes from the green-lipped mussel, grown in the marlborough sound of new zealand, the cleanest waters in the world. due to its unique extraction process, omega xl gives us something called free fatty acids, which our body can utilize instantly, whereas regular fish oil comes in the triglyceride form that is bound and our body cannot utilize it readily. this is the reason why fish-oil pills have to be so big. omega xl is a small, safe, easy-to-swallow gel capsule that can go directly into your system and will effectively reduce your inflammation. >> the key to the way that we
process things is we manage the temperature, we manage the storage chain, we know the chemistry we're looking for, and we make really sure that we're getting the right chemistry to the consumer. i can't say that any of the people who are selling seafood mussels are gonna be concerned about the same thing. you may cook it in a way or deal with it in a way that simply destroys that bioactivity. so not only are you taking a dozen mussels, you may be getting no benefit. so the certain way of getting the benefit is to take a capsule, and that's so convenient. it's a tiny, little capsule, it's dead easy to take, and you can be sure about what the outcome will be. so there's no doubt at all, in my mind, that taking omega-3 every day is a very good way of ensuring that, for well people, that they stay well, and for people who aren't well, that they get better. there's so much evidence that that's the case. and if you're gonna do that, why not take the best? omega xl is the best. >> announcer: omega xl is a one-of-a-kind, powerful omega-3 oil that helps to reduce inflammation associated with joint pain, arthritis, bronchial tightness, and more.
omega xl is the ultimate natural solution in great health and well-being. >> omega xl not only helped my hand, it helped my whole body. i can walk around. i can move around. my hand -- i can make fists. i can stretch my fingers. i can turn my hands around without extreme pain. it all has come together because of omega xl. >> well, i had two compressed disks. i went to see a very renowned back specialist here in miami and was told there was really nothing i could do for it -- not even surgery. but i started taking the omega xl, and in about 72 hours, i started noticing a significant difference in my back, and the swelling was a lot less. it was really an answer to prayer. i didn't know what i was gonna do. i have children down to a very young age, and i want to be active with them as long as i can. it's allowed me to keep up with
them and experience good things. and that's thanks to omega xl. no doubt about it. >> announcer: if you're living in pain, listen up. every day, people suffer from symptoms including back, neck, knee, and joint pain. studies have proven that inflammation is the culprit, but now you can fight it with omega xl. as part of the show, we are extending a special offer. call and we'll double your order. don't miss the opportunity to regain control of your life. there's no financial risk. omega xl offers a 90-day money-back guarantee. you have nothing to lose. time's running out. call now. >> we want to tell you about the larry king cardiac foundation. i started it 25 years ago, and shawn is our chair. our mission? to save hearts. why? because cardiovascular disease is the number-one killer of american men. >> it's also the number-one cause of death in american women, costing us 400,000 moms, sisters, and daughters each
year. >> it's the cause of 1 in 4 deaths for men, but regardless of your gender, certain lifestyle behaviors impact your chance of developing heart disease in the first place. now, there's nothing you can do about family history or age, but you can take control and drastically minimize risks by doing simple things. >> exercise regularly and eat a healthy diet, including heart-healthy supplements. prevention is the key. >> that's right. so our foundation is dedicated not only to helping those who have heart disease, we are actively fighting to bring those numbers down by pushing prevention. >> "exercise and good nutrition" -- we're casting that message far and wide. please join us. help spread the word. together we can build a heart-healthy future. >> join the movement. find us on facebook or www.lkcf.org. >> announcer: the preceding has been a paid advertisement for been a paid advertisement for omega xl.
if you dig your bones, protect them. all: cbs cares! law enforcement is blind to the plans of some terrorists because their communications are encrypted. here's nancy cordes. >> reporter: this is where terrorists turn these days when they want to talk undetected, a messaging app, called "telegram," available for free on any smartphone. >> it's the go-to application for terrorist communication. >> reporter: elliot zweig is deputy director at the middle east media research institute. >> "telegram" has set it up that even they themselves don't retain the information. they cannot monitor the content. >> reporter: and there are dozens of other apps just like it, featuring powerful encryption law enforcement can't crack. >> that is a big problem. we have to grapple with it. >> reporter: fbi director james comey revealed wednesday that
one of the two men who tried to attack a garland, texas, conference center in may communicated with an overseas terrorist 109 times that morning. >> and to this day, i can't tell you what he said with that terrorist, 109 times the morning of that attack. >> reporter: so congress is considering legislation that would compel tech companies to unscramble and hand over suspicious and encrypted messages, but many of these companies operate outside of the u.s. "telegram" was founded by a russian and is based in germany, and experts warn that isis is testing out its own encrypted android app, so it won't have to rely on outside companies at all. even u.s. tech companies have balked at the notion of new laws. they say encryption is there to protect all kinds of personal data and if they give law enforcement a way in, scott, eventually, hackers will find their way in, too. >> nancy cordes on capitol hill. thank you, nancy. connecticut is about to
become the first state to ban anyone on a government watch list from buying a firearm. that is something that congress has not done, despite a request from the president. governor dan malloy announced today he'll do it by executive order. supreme court justice antonin scalia is under fire tonight for comments he made during oral arguments yesterday. the court was hearing a challenge to affirmative action at the university of texas. here's our chief legal correspondent, jan crawford. >> reporter: justice scalia was describing an argument made in court papers by opponents of affirmative action. "there are those who contend it does not benefit african americans to get them into the university of texas where they do not do well," says scalia, "as opposed to a slower tracked school where they do." scalia was referring to the mismatched theory that minorities admitted through
affirmative action, often from disadvantaged communities, tend to enter at the bottom of the class. then they have trouble competing. with that in mind, scalia continued, "i don't think it stands to reason that it's a good thing for the university of texas to admit as many blacks as possible." but outside the court, no one cared about the legal arguments. scalia was deemed racist. minority leader harry reid even took to the senate floor. >> but it is deeply disturbing to hear a supreme court justice endorse racist ideas from the bench. >> it's not the least bit racist. >> reporter: stuart taylor co-authored the book that pioneered the mismatch theory. >> justice scalia used rather awkward words, but the point he was making was absolutely correct that when you dramatically lower academic standards to let in a racial group into a college who wouldn't get in otherwise, they're going to have trouble competing with the people who got in the old-fashioned way. >> reporter: now supporters of affirmative action say the mismatched theory understates the real advantages that minority students get by attending these highly selective schools. and, scott, they point out that
the graduation rates for minorities at u.t. austin, well, they're the highest of any public college in the state. >> jan crawford in the washington newsroom. thanks, jan. army sergeant bowe bergdahl is speaking for the first time since he was released in a prisoner swap last year. bergdahl was captured by the taliban in 2009 after he wandered from his post in afghanistan. his first interviews are now on the podcast "serial," and david martin is at the pentagon. >> reporter: the army's investigation of bergdahl portrayed him as a cockeyed idealist, an image he seemed to confirm with his own words. the soldier the army has charged with desertion, and some have branded a traitor, told an interviewer he abandoned his post in an effort to draw attention to problems within his own unit.
>> reporter: bergdahl said it wasn't long after he walked away that he realized how stupid. >> reporter: it took the taliban about a day to find him. >> reporter: bergdahl spent the next five years as a prisoner of the taliban. much of it was in a pitch-black room. >> reporter: bergdahl's stunt backfired not only on himself but also on his fellow soldiers.
their lives were put in greater jeopardy by having to spend several weeks hunting for him. the army still has not decided what to do with bergdahl. he faces charges that could bring a life sentence, but investigators have recommended he not spend any more time in prison. scott. >> david martin at the pentagon. david, thanks. tornadoes are rare in the pacific northwest, but people who live in the town of battleground, washington, near the oregon border, think their town was hit by one today, and david begnaud is there. >> there really is a tordo. >> reporter: it looked like a tornado to people living in battleground, washington. >> we got multiple calls. trees down all over. >> reporter: the unusual weather came amid four days of fast-moving pacific storms that left much of oregon and washington a mess. andrew says his neighbor's shingles were hitting his home like knives. what did it look like outside? >> it looked like "the wizard of oz" out here. there was debris flying
everywhere, trees flying down the road, people's sheds, pools, trampolines. >> reporter: since monday, as much as 18 inches of rain has swelled northwest rivers and saturated the ground, toppling trees. a landslide closed the interstate connecting oregon and washington most of today. >> i was told the department of transportation has hopes, this is hopes at the moment, to reopen at least one lane. >> reporter: governor jay islee declared a state of emergency. two people died, including a 72-year-old woman who drowned overnight her car in clactskani, oregon. her husband was able to crawl out of the sunroof. back here in battleground, the witnesss say what looked like a tornado lasted only 30 seconds. scott, no one was hurt. >> david, thanks. coming up, more people become ill after eating at chipotle. i absolutely love my new but the rent is outrageous. good thing geico offers affordable renters insurance. with great coverage it protects my personal belongings should they get damaged, stolen or destroyed.
[doorbell] uh, excuse me. delivery. hey. lo mein, szechwan chicken, chopsticks, soy sauce and you got some fortune cookies. have a good one. ah, these small new york apartments... protect your belongings. let geico help you with renters insurance. coughing disrupts everyone's life. that's why there's delsym. delsym's advanced time release formula helps silence coughs for a full 12 hours. all night... or all day.
the ceo of chipotle apologized today as more people reported getting ill after eating in a restaurant in boston. there are now 141 suspected cases of norovirus at boston college. here's anna werner. >> reporter: the shutdown of this chipotle in boston is the fifth health-related crisis for the restaurant chain in six months. boston college says students who
ate there came down with norovirus, which causes nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. tim fox is a senior. >> severe stomach pain, like, really sharp pain, something i never really felt before. >> reporter: city health officials believe this outbreak may have begun with a sick employee who contaminated the food. health inspectors cited the restaurant for allowing that sick employee to work and for having meat that was below safe temperatures. chipotle's health-related issues began last july with a small e. coli outbreak in seattle. in august, 100 people were sickened by norovirus in california. then starting in october, dozens of customers in chipotle restaurants across nine states came down with e-coli infections. the chain temporarily closed 43 of its restaurants. data shows chipotle is the fastest expanding restaurant chain in the u.s., opening 799 restaurants since 2009. sales have more than doubled to $4 billion. >> i'm sorry for the people who got sick. >> reporter: ceo steve ells pledged to overhaul food safety protocols in an interview with
nbc news. the stock has rebounded today but is still down almost 25% since august. and just a short time ago, authorities in seattle announced they have closed a chipotle because of repeated violations. it is one of the 43 restaurants that were shut down voluntarily during the e-coli outbreak. the company says it will address the problem. scott. >> anna werner, thanks. who builds the safest cars? that's next.

this is the "cbs overnight news." >> welcome to the "overnight news." i'm don dahler. republican presidential front-runner donald trump says he's postponing his scheduled trip to israel. trump planned to meet israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu after christmas, but his comments about barring muslims from entering the united states have caused an uproar in israel. trump now says he'll travel to israel after he's elected president. the latest cbs news/"new york times" poll shows him surging. he now has the support of 35% of likely republican primary voters. what's more, two-thirds of his supporters say they'll vote for trump, even if he runs as an independent. major garrett reports. >> reporter: donald trump taunted republicans with a recycled threat to run as an independent candidate and under
intense criticism, scaled back his scope to ban all muslims from america. some republicans are reconsidering endorsing trump if he is the nominee, and president obama took on trump while celebrating the end of slavery in america. donald trump says he needs from the republican party what he rarely displays on the campaign trail, decorum. >> if they don't treat me with a certain amount of decorum and respect, if they don't treat me as the front-runner, if the playing field is not level, certainly all options are open. >> reporter: other than quitting, there's only one other option, running as a third party candidate. history says that's a path to defeat for trump. top republicans fear it could hand the election to the democrats. but trump says he wants the gop nomination. >> i will beat hillary. the one person that they don't want to run against is me. >> reporter: trump is sticking with the proposed ban on muslims
that legal experts brand unconstitutional, republicans have called un-american, and the white house labels disqualifying. >> it's a temporary ban on not everybody, but many. people have to be vetted. >> reporter: it's all becoming too much for some republicans. gop presidential candidate john kasich said for the first time he might not endorse trump if he's the nominee. >> i hope he changes his rhetoric and becomes a unifier. but if he doesn't, and the divisions and the extremism continues, i've got to take another look. >> reporter: at an event marking the 150th anniversary of the 13th amendment that abolished slavery, president obama drew sustained applause with this indirect response to trump. >> our freedom is bound up with the freedom of others. regardless of what they look like or where they come from or what their last name is or what faith they practice -- [ applause ] >> reporter: in israel, prime minister benjamin netanyahu said
he "rejects trump's muslim ban," adding israel respects all religions. in a demonstration of his faith, boxing legend muhammad ali said, i'm a muslim. and that's nothing islamic about killing innocent people. muslims have to stand up to those who use islam to advance their own personal agenda. the first funeral was held yesterday for the victim of the san bernardino massacre. en 27-year-old yvette velasco died along with 13 others in that attack. survivors and family members were allowed to return to the scene of the shooting, the inland regional center. carter evans is there. >> reporter: we're now getting a clearer picture of the relationship between farook and malik. the fbi says it's clear they shared extremist views long before they shared wedding vows. >> they were radicalized before they started courting. >> reporter: fbi director james comey on capitol hill wednesday gave chilling details about the
husband and wife terrorist, syed farook and tashfeen malik. >> as early as the end of 2013, they were talking about jihad and martyrdom before they were engaged. >> reporter: that would have been months before he brought here from saudi arabia using a fiance visa. >> was the woman shooter radicalized before she came to america? >> it looks like she was. >> reporter: lawmakers are questioning how thoroughly she was vetted before being granted the visa and whether her marriage to farook could have been part of a terrorist plan all along. >> do you agree with me if it was arranged by a terrorist operative or organization, that is a game changer? >> that would be a very, very important thing to know. >> reporter: the fbi is also zeroing in on enrique marquez, who investigators say purchased the rifles the couple used in their attack. cbs news learned that marquez told investigators that he and farook were planning an attack in 2012, but they didn't follow
through. the role marquez might have played in the san bernardino attacks, if any, remains unclear. he has not been arrested. meanwhile, the fbi was able to recover photos from farook's cell phone, which contained exterior photos of carter high school in realto. according to school officials, as a county health inspector, farook inspected schools, but it was unusual for him to keep photos of the school exterior. as the fbi continues to comb through evidence in the san bernardino shooting, it has an estimated 900 active investigations involving isis sympathizers and other extremists nationwide. >> what would be your greatest fear after last week's terrorist attacksome >> what don't we know? what can't we see? >> reporter: marquez has not been arrested because he provided some of the weapons in the attack. we're learning federal authorities are now considering charging him with material support of terrorism. protesters continue to take to the streets of chicago
demanding mayor rahm emanuel resign. dean reynolds has the latest. >> reporter: rahm emanuel is known as a political tough guy, but weeks of protests have taken their toll and exposed the mayor's vulnerable side. >> rahm emanuel's got to go! >> reporter: protests continued into the night wednesday after echoing through the heart of chicago all day. >> rahm emanuel needs to stop playing games with people's lives. >> reporter: hundreds of protesters descended on city hall. skeptical of the embattled mayor's public mea culpa. >> we're going to begin the healing process. the first step in that journey is my step, and i'm sorry. >> reporter: an emotional emanuel acknowledged black chicagoans were treated differently by the police. >> and this is wrong. and that has to change in this city. that has to come to an end and end now.
>> reporter: the crisis was sparked by the release of police dash cam video showing a white policeman shooting black teenager laquan mcdonald 16 times. for over a year, rahm emanuel's administration fought to keep the video under wraps. >> every day we held onto the video contributed to the public's distrust, and that needs to change. >> shut it down! >> reporter: other police killings have reawakened the stark complaints of police brutality, prompting rahm emanuel to force his police superintendent and the head of the board overseeing policemen's conduct to resign. after initially imposing a federal investigation of chicago's police department, he now welcomes it. now, a bill was introduced into the illinois legislature on wednesday that would allow the legislature to recall mayor emanuel, but the chances of passage are rather slim, and
fbi director james comey is pressing tech companies to allow law enforcement a back door into their hardware. he told congress powerful encryption is standing in the way of terror investigations. nancy cordes reports from capitol hill. >> reporter: he had a very ominous warning for lawmakers. he said the government's ability to track terrorist communications is not keeping pace with their ability to evade detection. >> increasingly we are unable to see what they say. >> reporter: fbi director james comey provided a chilling example wednesday. he said the two men who attempted to attack a garland, texas conference center in may communicated with an overseas terrorist 109 times that very morning, using powerful encryption the fbi can't crack.
>> to this day, i can't tell you what he said with that terrorist 109 times the morning of that attack. that is a big problem. we have to grapple with it. >> reporter: encrypted apps, he said, are now standard tools for terrorists. the paris attackers likely used them to plan secretly, conspirators in france, belgium, and syria. now top lawmakers are considering legislation that would compel tech giants like apple, google and facebook to hand over encrypted data to law enforcement. along with tools to crack the code. >> even simple commercial products that you can buy encrypt the conversation. and some of them encrypted in a way that even with a court order, you can't break into it. >> reporter: tech companies say their products are designed that way for a reason, to protect personal information like bank account and credit card data. sometimes even the tech companies themselves can't crack them. industry representative michael beckerman.
>> when you're asking for a back door encryption or special key, you're asking to have an engineered vulnerability in the system that can be used by law enforcement or governments, but also that can be exploited by hackers or state-sponsored terrorists. >> reporter: after the san bernardino shooters posted their allegiance to isis on facebook, lawmakers introduced a bill that would require tech companies to alert law enforcement when users post terrorist activity, such as attack planning or recruitment on their sites. lorenzo is an expert on extremism at george washington university. is this essentially turning social media sites into watch dogs? >> that's obviously very complicated, and i'm not sure that social media has the ability, the expertise and the manpower to do that. think about companies like facebook and twitter that billions of users, can they be checking what everybody is saying. >> reporter: the fbi director
says he thinks by and large, tech companies do the best that they can. snap chat and twitter, in statements yesterday, both said they do work to comply with law enforcement and facebook said it has zero tolerance for terrorists and said the company works aggressively to remove content and inform law enforcement of any threat. high technology has already arrived at the kennel. for the first time researchers at cornell university used in vitro fertilization on a dog. the result -- seven healthy puppies. jim axelrod reports. >> reporter: five months old. >> they're so cute. >> reporter: these two colorfully named beagle puppies, red and green, owe their lives to their master, alex travis. >> i love them very much. they just need a little more house breaking, though. >> reporter: not owe their lives as in feeding and caring for them or he rescued them from the pound. no, red and green are among the very first test tube puppies.
a process this professor at cornell university's vet school helped pioneer. >> we hope to be able to use this as a launching point for curing genetic disease or trying to remove it from the populations of different breeds. >> reporter: in vitro fertilization, in which an egg is fertilized by a sperm in a lab and implanted in a surrogate has been an option for humans since the late 1970s. but dog reproduction is different from just about every other mammal. scientists just figured it out. but the birth of these seven puppies signals a new era for dog breeding. not just that champion lines will have a better chance to reproduce, even when a mother dog has trouble carrying to term, but scientists can address genetic issues, eye defects in collies or urinary stones in dalmatians. >> we can use that to fix those
defects and prevent the disease before it starts. >> reporter: which would be one high tech way which man would be dog's best friend. jim axelrod in new york. on my long-term control medicine, i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece in my asthma treatment. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. breo won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems. breo opens up airways to help improve breathing for a full 24 hours. breo contains a type of medicine that increases the risk of death from asthma problems and may increase the risk of hospitalization in children and adolescents. breo is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. once your asthma is well controlled, your doctor will decide if you can stop breo and prescribe a different asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. do not take breo more than prescribed. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse. ask your doctor if 24-hour breo

if you're tired of climbing on the roof to hang your holiday lights, you now have an alternative -- laser lights. they sit on the ground and point up at the house. one trouble, though, if you don't aim them right, they shine into the sky, and that can be dangerous for passing aircraft. mireya villarreal reports. >> whoa! >> reporter: believe it or not, this is a christmas decoration. but from the air. last week, one just like it 22 miles away from dallas-ft. worth international airport put a passenger plane in harm's way. there was a similar complaint last month in michigan. >> it's like pointing -- oh! >> reporter: it's a federal crime to shine a laser at a plane. while no one was charged in those cases, several so-called laser strikes are being blamed on the holiday laser displays.

shoot straight up into an aircraft's cockpit, causing potential problems, as we saw for ourselves. >> that's pretty bright right there. >> if the box is aimed a little high, some of the laser light will not hit the roof of the house, it will just keep going off into space. >> reporter: laser strikes, often intentional, have become a growing problem for pilots. in 2014, the federal aviation administration investigated more than 3800 laser light complaints. this year, that number has nearly doubled. >> i don't think it's hitting the house at all. >> reporter: the faa is asking homeowners to make sure their decorations aren't pointed toward the sky or to pull the plug on them all together. mireya villarreal, los angeles. >> and that's the "overnight news" for this friday. for some of you, the news continues. for others, check back with us a little later for the morning news and "cbs this morning." from the broadcast center in new york center, i'm don dahler.
