9:20 am
before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any conditions such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® is not for patients with artificial heart valves. jim changed his routine. ask your doctor about xarelto®. once a day xarelto® means no regular blood monitoring -- no known dietary restrictions. for more information and savings options, call 1-888-xarelto or visit [ male announcer ] even well-planned holidays can wind up at the corner of "stockings are stuffed" and "quick -- duck!" luckily, walgreens is always nearby, so it's easy to get in and out for extra stocking stuffers... or anything else you might suddenly need. stop by walgreens anytime for hershey's kisses chocolates, gift cards, and more. plus get up to 20 dollars in jingle cash on next week's purchase of 30 dollars or more. here at the corner of happy and healthy.

10:01 am
we wanted to rethink that whole industry, so we go and put out these sensors in each parking spot and then there's a mesh network that takes this information sends it over the internet so you can go find exactly where those open parking spots are. the collaboration with citi was important for providing us the necessary financing; allow this small start-up to go provide a service to municipalities. citi has been an incredible source of advice, how to engage with municipalities, how to structure deals, and as we think about internationally, citi is there every step of the way. so the end result is you reduce congestion, you reduce pollution and you provide a service to merchants, and that certainly is huge.

10:07 am
he moved on to other dastardly deeds. in "black sunday" he tried to below up the super bowl using the goodyear blimp. even his recent emmy nominated role in hbo's "big love" was less than favorite. >> i don't believe in second chances. >> did you ever get tired of playing the whacko, psycho, terrorist? >> no, because they're just guys that live just beyond where the buses run. that's the way i've always looked at it. who knows who is out there. i just know that they're out there. >> the under belly of society is exactly the opposite of his high society upbringing. bruce dern was born in to old money. in winnetka, illinois, his grandfather, george dern was
10:08 am
governor of utah. his great uncle was prize winning poet. when dern dropped out of the university of pennsylvania to pursue acting, his family largely disowned him. >> when i decided to become an actor i was going to make a living pretending. >> that's what they thought. >> they thought that that's what acting was. pretending. if you're not going to pretend then you'd bet are be jimmy stuart. >> just didn't really get it, did they? >> no. they never got it. >> but others did. soon he was working with legendary directors like alfred hitchcock. >> remember when we were kids? >> and he was playing opposite his best friend, jack nicholson and robert redford just to name a soon. >> i understand that you're an oxford man. >> not exactly. >> dern was definitely getting noticed. but still wasn't getting top billing. as all of your contemporaries
10:09 am
were doing these big movies and getting lead roles you said you were never jealous, you were just worried about when your time was going to come. >> i was worried if my time would ever come where i would get a chancea shot at those kind of roles. and then came "coming home." >> what are you saying that you're not going to make the effort? >> what i'm saying is -- i do not belong in this house. >> his role at returning vietnam vet opposite jane fonda earned him an oscar nomination. yet something still didn't feel right. >> the difficulty for me was, i started getting a lot of congratulations. for the performance and the movie. and i never served myself. i felt bad about the fact that i hadn't done that and i was being somebody who haddon that. >> one, two, three. >> the buzz surrounding his
10:10 am
current role fortunately no such guilty. >> the bruce dern! >> in fact special screening of "nebraska" in nebraska last monday. dern was treated as state's newly adopted son. >> there's a pioneer spirit in every community here. >> it's more than just the attention. ever since he finished shooting the movie says he's been carrying a piece of the heartland with him. >> you can go any place in the world and see is a sunset. beat that. you know what i'm saying? there's appreciation for everything here and that's what made me like it more than any place i'd done a movie before. >> it's finally all coming together. his daughter, ross cover nominated actress in her own right, laura dern, says, it's about time. >> people come up to me now like they're family members.

10:16 am
word cancer. >> huh huh. >> what did you decide to use instead. >> michigan. >> that's right. the kid named his cancer, michigan. insists everyone in his life refer to it as such. >> like, why do you have to call it that? because ohio state always beats michigan. that was something he could understand to make it in to a competition. he was going to beat this disease. >> it's now been more than a year since grant issued that pronouncement. >> this is his brain. >> if you look at his scans dr. randall at nationwide children's you can see a change. where the tumor was before compared to where it's not now. >> there's nothing there. >> it's a big space but there's no tumor. >> grant is trouncing michigan. although much of the credit has to go to science, his parents say, don't discount the sim man particulars. >> substituting a word can make a difference? >> absolutely. >> you have to do something to make it a disease you can fight. for grant that was naming it
10:17 am
