what strike capabilities do we have? >> north korea has been testing recently some launch ballistic missiles and they have been trying to develop other ba ballistic capabilities. analysts don't think they have reached the stage of being a successful missile program but they are advancing and not just there, but advancing with a nuclear program. whether or not it was a hydrogen bomb, this is an advancement in their nuclear program. >> juan, why would they do it and what can you tell us about the leads kim jong-un? >> well, gayle, we don't know much about the leader. he is erratic and inexperienced. the most contact we have had with him is through dennis rodman, and so this is a regime and a kim dynasty about its strength. both internally an sternal externally.

signs or symptoms. r do not take xarelto if you have an artificial t heart valve or abnormal bleeding. r tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. p before starting xarelto , tell your doctor about r any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto is the number onerprescribed blood thinner t in its class. well that calls for ar round of kevin nealons. make mine an arnold palmer. same here. p with xarelto there is no regular blood monitoring r and no known dietary restrictions. r treatment with xarelto was the right move for us. v ask yourr do ctor about xarelto

i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. north korea claims this morning it successfully tested its first hide hydrogen bomb. governments around the world are acting with alarm and conceptism skepticism. it was centered at a site where nuclear tests were carried out. state-run television took aim at the united states. it said that tests were a self-defense measure. >> people across the border in south korea watched very nervously. the south korea's military said it doubts that explosion was big united nations security council today. president obama surrounded himself with relatives of shooting victims as he announced new federal rules for gun sales. executive actions all gun dealers to be licensed and
the government will hire additional 200 investigates to effective. the president has seen a his term. he spoke about hem during his remarks on 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 rights to happy and those rights were stripped from college kids in blacksburg and indonesia and high schoolers in columbine and from first graders in newtown. every time i think about those kids, it gets me mad.
the streets of chicago every day. >> the president also said if you pass a background check, you can buy a gun. 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 -- you can't by an executive order do things that the constitution doesn't allow you to do. >> using a executive order what he is basically doing is issuing legality. >> president obama came out with yet another set of laws, executive actions on our second amendment right to keep and bear arms. >> i just think this is a -- agenda on his part that makes no sense. >> he wants to sign executive orders. no good. it's no good. it's no good! it's no fair. and they are not going to screw around with the second amendment. okay? it's not going to happen.

the kids to hand over the park to the nfl and not be accountable to making sure that the kids have a place to play, that's outrageous. >> reporter: gabe foo is a board member for santa clara youth soccer. he is concerned the nfl will damage the field. >> we have yet to see anything on paper from the nfl or the city to prove they are going to return it in the same condition. >> reporter: 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, we don't get the same exposure. >> reporter: the nfl says it will minimize any impact on the field and is installing plastic flooring to protect the grass. a spokesman also said, quote, the nfl and 49ers have already

this one has a full vented instructions and means it's a real dryer and really work. this is a fast and new idea saying, look. it's not about it being smaller 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 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.

nearly 14 million americans are cancer survivors. and there are exciting new ways to fight this disease. dr. david agus and two of his fellow cancer specialists dr. jude gasher on the right and dash anna parker are in our green hoomroom room. >> actor damian lewis on his new role as a hedge fund manager in the drama "billions." the "homeland" star is in our exciting. that is ahead as well. morning's headlines from around the globe. u.s. news and world report shows two new dog breeds recognized by the american kennel club. this is reserved and graceful and noble sloghi and a medium-sized dog. the american hairless terrier is alert and curious and energetic and small.
compete in the westminster kennel club show next year. >> i love dogs. "usa today" reports "american idol" kicks off 15th and final season tonight. the show launched the career of kelly clarkson who won the first eye idol." and others who had big, big careers carrie underwood and jennifer hudson who, believe it or not came in seventh and william hung who provided shall we say -- there is jennifer hudson. there he is. one of the more memorable moments on "the idol" show. two experts compared online ratings of 800 books and founds books are rated higher 74% of the time and movies higher 4% of the time. only about 1% are ranked much better than books.
with our look at the brave new world of health. that includes promising new ways to prevent and treat cancer. our dr. david agus, his new book is called "the lucky years." he writes one day cancer will be a manageable condition much in the way people can live with arges and type 1 diabetes. >> he is here along with dr. judy gasher and also anna barker, former deputy director at the national director of the cancer institute. pleased to have you all here. 44 years ago, president nixon declared a war on cancer. where are we in that war? >> you know, i don't think we have won at all and i think we are actually just at the beginning of the war. for the first time ever, i can walk into a patient's room and have optimism.
optimism i can make them live longer and better with than horrible disease. >> what has changed? >> we have two kinds of therapy. 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. durable responses in patients we have never seen before. >> how does it work? >> it's pretty exciting.
it can work by turning on your lympho cites or taking things off cancer cells called checkpoint inhibitors are 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 ankle gelina 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
when you can understand part of the biology driving that tumor and those genes that are making it
different and target those. >> but it's still such a scary thing. 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
cells can be different within an individually and the cancers 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 reproductive 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
>> you offer an anecdote about steve jobs' kansas city. >> he was safe on a lily pad but once the cancer progressed he 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%.
then you're left with all of those -- and in trying to stay ahead. 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 aspinner as 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
new england's energy comes from a pool of energy producers. eversource buys it at a set market price and delivers it to you. but that pool is shrinking, causing energy supply rates to go up and down. so we're working with partners across the region to increase our natural gas supply and bring in affordable, clean hydropower from canada. we're leading the way toward the solution... because more energy means lower energy supply rates for you. ever new england. eversource. this epidemic of gun violence knows no boundaries. hillary clinton has what it takes
republicans and the gun lobby. we need to close the loopholes and support universal background checks. how many people have to die before we actually act... before we come together as a nation? i'm hillary clinton and i approve this message. dear fellow citizen, i know what it' s like to buy a house. i know how it feels to be stressed about money. i understand what a scary word "retirement" is, and i can help. because i' m not just a fellow dad, fellow mom, fellow saver, i' m a fellow citizen. who gets up every day and tries her best. just like you. sincerely, elizabeth trackler samantha parke robert kennedy deanna morrison jared duemling
into a million piece. did you tell him that? >> i didn't wear a bomb! >> damian lewis became a star as brodie on "homeland." and now to star in "billions." he plays a powerful hedge fund manager in his success and 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.
damian lewis! good morning. >> you're in trouble! >> you know? >> let's just say this is not objective because we are all 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
>> 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 bit between the u.s. attorney 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.
to do to retain that power? and also, you know, it is an entertaining piece. >> it is. >> it is about these two guys 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. my turf. scene. >> i knew you were going to watch the show. >> i'm not getting hooked on another drama. said, there you go. accent.
york accent you were going to do? >> generous of you. as long as i have some kind of new york accent. >> you do. >> we wanted it to be -- look. 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?
>> andrew is a cocreator of the show and coexecutive producer. he gave access because of his journalists and "the new york times." guys. so it allowed brian and david to go and sit down with these guys and talk with them and create
