argue facebook is part of the government. claiming in the lawsuit, facebook status rises beyond that of a private company to that of a state actor. the lawsuit goes on to ask for relief, including the end of legal protections called section 230. the whole lawsuit depends, it hangs on this idea that facebook is part of the u.s. government the way that nasa or the fbi are, and it's not. now, going up against big tech is popular and perhaps profitable. trump's office sent out a fundraiser appeal shortly after filing the lawsuit. this does not appear to be an appeal for political donations.

direction, and it includes all the routes here which are not showing sliding. contra costa county, and even out of the altamont, things moving nicely. over to you. >> we're moving nicely here but headed towards hotter temperatures today. as we get a look outside at walnut creek, things not cooling off, and then look at the south county where we reach into the 90s this afternoon. heading over towards the east bay, expect the temperatures in the upper 90s in a few of these spots, and even reaching 101 in antioch, and danville will reach 96. fremont, 83. there will be some spots where temperatures will be much milder, especially near the coast and on the peninsula. 82 in palo alto, but 62 in the outer sunset. in the north bay highs reaching
into the low 90s, and sonoma 90s and 104 in ukiah. we are getting more arizona-type of heat as we go into the weekend. this high is not going anywhere, and it will take a while before the heat backs off. this will be different from the weather we have seen recently with the spikes in the temperatures because this one will last several days. look at our forecast and how hot it will be in brentwood. yeah, brutal on saturday. 111 degrees. we will see more days like that with the really hot temperatures, but saturday looks to be the hottest and then a cooldown by early next week, especially on tuesday, wednesday and thursday. it will feel so much better. we do have to make it through the next few days, and you want to make sure you are staying hydrated and taking care of your pets and none of the walks on the pavement during the middle of the day.

drought, it could mean an earlier fire season. and then over to the glacier. according to the experts, a reflective layer reflects solar radiation. the glaciers have seen a big reduction over the years, illustrating the ongoing threat of global warming. if you want more stories like this, head over to nbcbayarea.com. next here on "today in the bay," nbc bay area responds. >> i am consumer investigator,

little slowing here for west 80, and the typical pattern, those are the first areas we see. coming up, just 15 days away from the start of the summer olympics, but there's big time new concerns this morning in tokyo. we will tell you what prompted a new state of emergency. and then the president will be briefed on the situation in afghanistan, but what we do know is we are leaving much faster than anybody expected. there are still plenty of obstacles in store. the new signs that the team is getting more serious about leaving town altogether.

to convince putin they are serious about anything in the future. and then afghanistan, the president wants troops out by september. looks like we are leaving much, much faster than that. talks between the taliban and u.s. government began back in the 2020. talks of kabul falling after the last american soldier leaves. the president will speak on that issue today. voting rights, many states moving to curtail voting, and he'll deal with that today. four is covid, and the w.h.o. and oacd, the organization for economic development, warning this morning covid is getting worse, the delta variant is

could likely be none. >> i don't like the sound of this. >> not you. >> this is according to a report, and it shows 1 in 6 men friend. poor guys. hey, we can be friends. it gets worse if you are a single man. the pandemic is the most obvious reason contributing to that decline, and long work hours and children are also contributing factors in this. >> the pandemic didn't make me lose friends. i just was not able to see them in person. >> yeah, you would think you would call or text, something, right? >> interesting. >> i texted you a few times during the pandemic. >> yeah, sorry about not answering. >> that's your problem right there. >> yeah. >> get out of that box! come back. we're just kidding. we're team, that's for sure.

ozone levels. still looking good right there along the immediate coastline, so if you have breathing problems you want to limit your time outside. we're also limiting our time outside because of the heat. take a look at the temperatures. where we are headed today, mid to upper 90s in the east bay down to the south county. for the inner bay, 70s and 80s. 60s near the coast. the heat continues to add up each day. tomorrow slightly hotter temperatures. saturday will be the peak of the heat as we will see some of the inland temperatures reaching over 100 degrees from fairfield, concord and livermore. the seven-day forecast, this will be different from the past blasts of heat we have had. this is more of a heat wave as we get several days of the highs over 100 degrees. we will see that extend into sunday. monday is when it starts to come back down. tuesday, we're really feeling
the cooldown in the forecast in san francisco, as well as the immediate coastline, we will see temperatures in the 60s and 70s. a lot more sunshine. that fog just rolls back a little further away from the coast. still going to be fairly comfortable here. we have to watch our inland areas and take care of each other during this heat. i'll have another update in a few minutes. mike, what is the update now on the morning commute. >> a live camera in san jose does have slowing. it was about five minutes where we saw folks just pausing for just a second and then moving again. somebody, again, rushing to the roadway and then somebody else hitting the brakes will cause the slowing and it typically happens about now, every day between 5:40 and 5:55. these speed sensors are going back from orange to yellow in the same stretch from old oakland road exit, and no surprises up there. pretty clear, the tri-valley, no major concerns. highway 37 and the bay bridge on
