♪keep on the sunny side ♪always on the sunny side ♪keep on the sunny side of life♪ a cool water front brought in the first dusting of snow in the sierra earlier this week. this time lapse video shows the land -- so what will our winter actually look like. it's the big question. we had a lot of rain last year or more than we've been accustomed to. mark tamayo has the answers and the crystal ball. what should we look for?
>> everything clearing up sort of. last year we're talking about a strong el nino. last week, probably earlier this year you heard about lanina. that has changed. >> the dusting the snow this week in the sierra was a good reminder that winter isn't too far away. >> this is an exciting time. last year was october, this year is september for that first snow. >> what about this winter. remember last year at this time we had the strong el nino developing, all these bright colors showing water temperatures warmer than normal. the opposite of el nino is la nina. things have changed. the la nina watch cancelled earr this month. we have mutual conditions for the pacific and there's a high chance this will persist into the upcoming winter. what does that mean. here's a climate prediction's cr
, january, and february shows higher condition to the north and dryer conditions to the south and getting into southern california and approaching parts of the bay area. this is a very general forecast for a little more of a closer look, we talk to the national weather service. >> we're telling the national weather service, we're looking at a normal year for precipitation. nothing as stra astronomical. there's a chance could get - this dad swing west, could swing dry or hit in the middle and be normal. so the best thing to do since we're in this drought is we want to continue to conserve water. >> there's no storms on the horizon yet. any long range forecast is accompanied with certainty. what is certain is on going drought. you know what's interesting, last year
you heard so much about this godzilla el nino. thing was neutral, but don't let that fool you because we've had neutral weather that have been productive in term of rainfall and snow fall. there's a bit of uncertainty. as you heard from the wealth service, he's thinking we could be close to average as a high chance. an average for us is great. >> yeah. >> last year we have have above average. >> not too bad. we don't want too much rain at one point because that dad cause flooding. it's nice to see the show in the sierra. not a lot, but a change in the mountain. hopefully it's the first change to set up for winter. >> signs to come. >> thanks mark. >> thanks mark. trump's statement today comes after he spent several years panelling that conspiracy theater. >> president barack obama was
born in the united states period. >> donald trump putting an exclamation point on the birther controversy putting on his political opponent. >> clinton and her campaign of 2008 started the birther controversy. i finished it. >> the hot button issue reignity clinton. today the democratic nominee rem from the building reaped of bigotry. >> he's feeding into the bigotry that lurks in our country. >> speaking from a black woman's sim poedz yum, trump was blocks away where he countered her claim of racism, but not before
-- the latest campaign trail tension coming as a new fox news poll shows trump and clinton separated by one point nationally with just 53 days to go before election day. >> hillary clinton's number one challenge and problem is in getting the democratic activist bassen thosed about her. >> trump -- presentations) obama saying i'm confident about where i was born. there's going to be concussion research. we'll speak to a doctor about the issue and what can be done to protect you football players as well.
the nfl announce this week it will spend $100 million trying to improve player, health and safety when it comes to concussion. roger goodell announced the new an initiative today called play smart, play safe. the money will go towards medical research and improving technology with players helmets. the 49ers support the mission. >> so i think what the league is saying this is not an opportunity for us to go out and engage other experts outside of our own world to help us come up with better solutions, better practices for us to did a better job in protecting our players. >> the nfl plans to bring on an
independent scientist advisory board to help with this initiative. doctor around the country are stressing the importance of concussion research. i'm joined by dr. javier, director of bare concussion and brain injury center and doctor, here in the bay area, you and your colleagues have unveiled a plan this year, starting this year with high schools to help reduce the amounts of concussions and effects. explain quickly what you're doing. >> sure, so what we're doing is we're very lucky because at the nfl level, at the ncaa level, we have tools which we can put ourselves on the side line. we're using technology to provide side line coverage for athletes in the bay area. we've been successful at this program in arizona and we're replicating >> is this a data gathering or
are you implementing to help reduce the potential for concussions. >> so there's several elements to the program. the first is the basic and most fundamental with a program called bare brain. it's an education program designed for who this matters most and that's the high school athlete. the second component is based on testing and working with a company called in tact. we're kree kree -- we're creating testing. we are have athletic trainers in the field on the locker room or in the athletic training room consult with concussion specialist in the area. >> the nfl is just getting so fast that players are getting so big and so fast that every week we're seeing hits that are inducing concussions. last week cam newton was hit a few times in a game against the denver broncos that later brought out a
lot of criticism. there was a penalty flag thrown, but the fact was newton was hit with velocity and he felt because he's a fantastic they didn't want to take him out. what's your idea as to how they're handling the concussion dilemma as we see these hits. >> i can't speak to what happened in denver specifically, but what i can tell you as apart of the side line program, so i serve as an neuro traum cal -- and i work with the spotters that are in the video. they're called to the side line. they're ininstructed to call down to the referees and stop -- they're instructed to call down to the refugee and stop the game. when we see these hits, we remove the athletes and evaluate them to see if there's
a concussion at that time or at a later time because many of these things can evolve and it's something we take seriously week to week whether it's at the college level or high school level, these are important to implement and so are the rules to prevent these things from happening to begin with. >> some parents be concerned? should parents not have their kids play football? >> so, what we're trying to do is trying to make all sports as safe as possible. especially football. whether [indiscernible] in california we're changing the policies around football. we're changing the rules around football. we're reducing the amount of contact in practice. and we're creating a number of educational tools and if a parent see that is information and they decide that they want their child to play football, fantastic. if they choose not to play football, that is their decision. our job is to make it as safe as possible.
>> dr. javier, i appreciate your time and insight. >> across the world, and here in the bay area, people lined up early to be among the first to get their hands on well, what else am i talking about, apple's newest iphone. apple ceo tim cook stood by to welcome customers. he's there in this shot. we see the new phone and talk to those customers who have lined up at the store in san francisco's union scare who spent all day checking out of product. >>reporter: iphone fans checking out the door. fans flood it had inside. the first -- we were over at&t and got to preview the iphone.
i can tell you from personal experience, it has a fast processer and it has a call up screen in an instant. that phone expected to be popular. some models have sold out. fans say they think the new phone will live up to the hype. >> i got the iphone 7. i waited 12 hours to get this and i have the smart case for it too. >> you don't want to drop that phone and break it the first day. >> definitely not. >> we talked with iphone fans about the fact this model doesn't have a standard head phone jack. they say that doesn't matter. they say getting rid of the jack allows apple to pack this device with the latest tech. in san francisco, christian cappen, ktvu fox news. one in two san francisco firefighters will develop some sort of job related cancer. it is an astounding statistic. one that prompted firefighter to raise awareness starting together through a photo exit. dozens of photographers of san
francisco firefighters on the job are on display at the harvey milk center. the exhibit is free. it's apart of the cancer foundation. the public can view images of rescues and burning buildings and walls of fire and smoke. you're seeing the faces of the people who fight fires and your seeing the jobs of the firefighters. you can see how difficult the job can be at times but the human side of it. >> those behind the exhibit home hope it will draw interest and sponsors in san francisco to raise money for cancer prevention and treatments. >> when we look at the picture, it drives home the fact how dangerous the job is. >> staggering. still to come, we're going go back to our breaking news. we want to speak to a legal analyst about charge and what it mean to officers and others
honey, is the internet back yet? yes!! i need to let her know that i like this! i like, like, like, like... i haven't seen a movie based on a comic book in so long. i know. we're over here internet people! get high speed internet from at&t. with over 99% reliability. at an everyday price with no extra monthly fees. keep calm, you internet's on.
unconvention nal step where letters are stoent those suspected of soliciting sex. we have sharon. a coordinator of human trafficking. i want to start with you. this lunch is tomorrow. can you explain how this will work. >>reporter: sure. so the system has been around for a little bit while before if someone sees traffic occurring near them, they could fill out a paper form, which will get sent to opd and opd will send a letter letting someone know that their vehicle was seen around an area, and sort of to effect and scare folks a little bit. i was at a conference, i'm a resident, i'm a tech information and i serve as a commissioner here in oakland, i was at a conference and robin from the seize network spoke up and said they're looking for ways to digitalize. there's a website that allows you to up load a picture and
fill out information about the issue. you can see it right now. and it will submit that digitally as well to opd. by doing this, we're putting the power in the hands of the people. >> opd gets this image and they'll decide whether it's worth sending to that individual? >> i can't speak to this affirmatively. if they receive a report, they'll send a letter. >> cheryl, i want to speak to you because you're involved with stopping sex trafficking, what do you think of this program? >> it's a different way to shift -- that's the demand to purchase commercial sex. so what's been great is that ebasi thought of this organization and having community have the pour to report potential buyers of sex.
we're increasing technology to combat trafficking and it's not just in oakland to make it regional. >> this is just -- does it work? >> i think it goes beyond shaming. the letter that the license or registered owner will receive provides information regarding human trafficking. we know in oakland, people use the term prostitution and sex trafficking is a monday mussily, but there's a difference. those being exploited and underage, they're being exploited. that's human trafficking. we want to bring that to the attention of individuals looking to purchase sex. >> great, what about those who are in a neighborhood, they think they've seen something suspicious, and really it turns out to be something innocent. what happens to that particular individual or that case? >> sure sue. in the program that's established, the letter
that's sent out is not -- it's not necessarily penalizing someone. it's really again like you said, very aggressive shaming and in that letter it's explicit. you can call pd and discuss it. historically there hasn't been a lot of cases of abuse. >> what if there's a repeat person. someone -- is there any ramifications? >> opd takes that into account. >> sharan, the hope is this will continue bay area wide, but just describe the impact. i mean, if a person gets a letter, they already know they're doing something wrong. i guess for some of the sceptics out there, you believe this will work. >> i think it's an important first step, right. i mean think as people became more aware of this, as there's more of a -- we'll have more honest
conversations about a culture that is complacent to sex trafficking >> you're bringing more attention to it. by people getting the letter, they know there's attention being drawn to their activity just like when you do stories here, you bring attention to topics and that drives conversations. >> thank you for coming in. interesting program. i'm interesting to see how it works. >> it will be great to see those at the music festival. >> great, thank you. new information about the cases that locked iphone in last december, san bernardino -- the association press and two other news organization filed a lawsuit against the fbi to learn who it paid and how much it spent to hack into that locked phone. now the fbi says getting into that phone was necessary to
investigate the deadly shooting. the suit was filed under the freedom of information act and the fbi said that it paid more than 100-0000 to a third party to break into the iphone of one of the -- they paid $1 million to a third party to break into the iphone of the sarn shooter. the top spokesperson for isis known as dr. lile was in charge of providing propaganda. his death follows the group's most prominent members. he was killed last month. he was a close -- served as the group most senior recruiter. coming up next, here on the 4 on 2, the latest on the police sex scandal that rocked the bay area have several months including the first official charges filed in the case. most of the bay area warming up today, and the trend will continue into the weekend. coming up, the hottest day of
afoot and light-hearted i take to the open road. healthy, free, the world before me, the long brown path before me leading wherever i choose. the east and the west are mine. the north and the south are mine. all seems beautiful to me. i we worked with pg&eof to save energy because wenie. wanted to help the school. they would put these signs on the door to let the teacher know you didn't cut off the light. the teachers, they would call us the energy patrol. so they would be like, here they come, turn off your lights! those three young ladies were teaching the whole school about energy efficiency. we actually saved $50,000. and that's just one school, two semesters, three girls.
2nd district attorneys says there's seven more and we expect four more. >> they filed five counts against officer black, and two against mr. johnson. keep in mind, ted, these are all misdemeanors. no felonies here. i assume there were no felonies committed by these two police officers, felonies command at most 1 year in the county jail. >> misdemeanors. >> yes. >> stakes are low and these are the first two. i found interesting is one of the indictments had to do with not reporting something and there was digital evidence. it seems as though celeste kept of a record of what was going on during this entire episode or some of the episode with photo and dinners and et cetera, and screen shots. that i would assume for the district attorney is going to be paramount in proving not only the first 2 cases but others >> when you have direct evidence
like that, and some cases circumstantial, but that really will effect the defense in the case, and that's, for officer johnson. apparently jasmine slash celeste was in puerto rico with her mother at the time and she was telling officer johnson, here's what's going on. and he said okay. i'll keep it a secret. well, you know, doesn't that go to what police officers do at time is cover each other. and isn't that what the public complains about a lot when we see a police officer who covers for other police officers. but yet it's a misdemeanor. is it tough? that's what they charged. >> you mentioned her mother. she was with her father at the press conference in florida after she was released from jail. we haven't much from the parents. >> i'm going to tell you. i think that's interesting because here's a young woman from what
13 -- 14 years of age and she's in the streets and going with bliss officers. where were the parents at that time. i would love to hear from them. i would love for them to come on the verdict and talk to us and say here's what was going on at the time. i'm not blaming them. i'm not saying that they're at fault for this, but it certainly would be nice to know what role they took in this. why didn't they prevent it. where are you? who are you going out with? so there's questions a lot of us would like answers but you know what's interesting to me, the father shows up at the press conference. what do they talk about at the press conference? suing its police department. >> mrs. price representing jasmine said that it started at the age of 12. so that's a very young age and you're right, that's something that is concerning a lot of people. last question here, what do we
expect moving forward? there have been allegations that there could be more kids, more officers involved. what do you see in the next few weeks, months. >> certainly i expect in the next few months, they'll be other officers and those officers will be charged with felonies in some cases and they'll move through the judicial system. the one -- they have a loss of their jobs and i think that's a paramount importance. >> okay. michael cordova saturday, thank you. that's this week edition of the verdict, mark. the weather with verdict is heating up the temperatures inland. back up to the mid-to upper 90s flirting with 100 degrees. on the satellite, this looks like a typical summertime weather pattern out there we have the low cloud and fog near the california coastline, and come in closer. we have rain showers way to our north toward the pacific northwest and we're seeing activity to the north. jet
