4:13 pm
fight for you. i spoke to bonta shortly after his confirmation. he reiterated his first priority is holding police officers accountable for misconduct. this days after derek showman was found guilty of murdering george floyd, most law enforcement personnel do you want to build and maintain and foster and cultivate the trust that is needed? and accountability is very important to building that trust because there's no trust without accountability in the assembly bonta champion bill seeking to end cash bail and abolish the death penalty during his confirmation hearing, bonta faced questions from republican lawmakers about his support of gun laws and you being the tough law enforcement officer in the state of california. they're not. they're just gonna hurt or restrict la biting citizens. if you're going to save a life for you know, for a little more regulation, a little more registration, little more minutes administrative oversight. it's worth it. lawmakers ask bond to how he would differ from his predecessor. some question, but sarah's policies on police misconduct investigations and the state's backlog of seizing

4:15 pm
reported hate crimes in the past year. measure one overwhelming bipartisan approval with a 94 to 1 vote. it still does need to pass the house in order to reach president biden's desk. our special program, voices for change returns this sunday. ktvu is greg lee will be speaking with experts about the derrick show vin guilty verdict. and what this means for the future of public safety in this country, he'll be discussing police reform, systemic racism and what real change looks like sense of joy for justice. but there's also the feeling that this is just one case. this is just one tragedy. but there are so many others that deserve the same amount of justice aziz, george floyd and shopping. we. no, there is bias in the system we call criminal justice, and we know some of the ways to change that. why are we still having discussions about what we should do? for change
4:16 pm
airs right here on ktvu at 10 o'clock sunday morning, right after a special anniversary edition of fox news sunday. had a burial, whether some stubborn cloud cover today with today, of course, being earth day or 2021 with that we are talking about. of course, you want to do things to help the earth and healthy environment. so here's actually satellite images because spinning around closer to the west coast closer to california, and most of the stormy clouds remain offshore, but we're actually talking about some rain chances as we head into the weekend. here's a satellite right now. lots of fog hanging out toward our coastline and still some stuff. marin patches near the coast and right around the bay is you can't see up in the north bay and out toward the east bay closer to richmond and berkeley. solid overcast here over the bay bridge over san francisco, so not much in the way of sunshine for these neighborhoods this afternoon
4:17 pm
without the fog, carter and that is having a big impact on temperatures right now. it is only 52 degrees in san francisco. some sixties, though, in the sunshine out toward conquered in livermore and san jose, checking in 63 degrees, here's a live camera looking out toward sfo, where we do have the over. cast guys, so the cloud cover. it's already aroused. gonna ramp up in coverage once again overnight into your friday morning forecast models picking up on that idea first thing tomorrow morning and then we could have a few high clouds drifting throughout the afternoon hours. it is somewhat of a cool forecast coast side in the neighborhoods should be a little bit warmer than today. the warm spots will be approaching the seventies, so it's rather chilly, cool or miles. we're not talking about any heat in the forecast for tomorrow for your friday it is dry tomorrow. in fact, we're excited to talk about those rain chances and we do bring in the chance of some rain as we head into a sunday and we'll have the update coming up, all right, mark. thank you. and international math competition and a team from right here in
4:18 pm
the bay area is among the finalists coming up next. we're going to talk live with one of the math whizzes about the real world pandemic problem that he and
4:19 pm
breyers is always so delicious... i can tell that they used your milk, matilda. great job! [moo] you're welcome. breyers natural vanilla is made with 100% grade a milk and cream and only sustainably farmed vanilla. better starts with breyers. can you be free of hair breakage worries? we invited mahault to see for herself that new dove breakage remedy
4:20 pm
gives damaged hair the strength it needs. even with repeated combing hair treated with dove shows 97% less breakage. strong hair with new dove breakage remedy. the finals in a prestigious international math competition, and they got there by tackling a problem that has faced so many people during the pandemic. ah lack of connectivity for more on this. we're joined by elliot chin, a senior at the nuwave, a school in san matteo. elliot wonderful to have you on here today. so the first two rounds in what is called the math works, math modeling challenge it's put on by the system. body of industrial and applied mathematics s o, you're headed to the finals here and essentially the challenge for you and the team was to defeat the digital divide. you tried to figure out a way to get more
4:21 pm
people internet access. what was the solution? you came up with. that's right. so the challenge of the math works math modeling challenge this year was about talking with the digital divide and specifically about assessing how internet prices. will evolve over the next decade, as well as looking at how different demographics used the internet on well, we found was that when you look at how internet prices will evolve as technology evolves and in the coming years. uhcities likee i'm at right now will experience the great growth in technology. um that will come with technological improvements but more rural areas without as much infrastructure politics your experience that same boom. at the same time, something that's very relevant right now with covid was everybody is going online, whether it be for work or for school for just hanging out with friends is that oftentimes internet right
4:22 pm
now it doesn't have the capacity to keep up for many households of which is why it's very important that we enact policy that allows for equitable distribution of internet. not just among those who can afford it and in industrialized areas, but in rural areas as well in areas without this much infrastructure and for people who may they're on their schools. maybe we are not ready yet to go back. its zaveri important that we still provide you net equitably to everybody. stressful yes, certainly. i made a sense of urgency. it seems like for you and your team to try to address this issue that you know so many of your fellow students across the country have have had to deal with here. it seems like a competition like this is really a reminder of how important mathematics are to solving real world issues here. models that you and your team used to come up with a solution to this problem. that's right. and i'd say it's a testament both to
4:23 pm
how important math modeling is in our increasingly complex world as well as writing, so the models were used. we used what's called monte carlo simulations. now montecarlo simulation is a simulation where you simulate some of that so in our case, the event was how internet prices will change over time. and then you simulated 1000 more times they with slightly change variables to get a sense at the whole range of what will happen on what this allows us to do is even if we can't predict exactly what will happen in the future, because we've simulated it so many times in so many different ways. it allows us to get a revenge in the perspective on what the different possibilities. for internet in the future. are s o. that's that's really a testament to the importance of math modeling because in our world where everything is so complex and unexpected on, i'm, which are increasingly important nowadays, there's all sorts of applications for math
4:24 pm
modeling to decode our our world because otherwise it's very hard to predict the trajectory of things like internet. or covid infections in the future, all right s a let's talk about what? what happens with the work that you and your your fellow high school students that have put in here on this competition. i mean, obviously you want to you want to win the competition, and there's a lot of scholarship money that zaun the line here, but is your hope also that the hard work that you've put in here? can be applied in a real way to try to address this problem down the road. yeah, i mean, it would be great if some of the work that we do, as well as the many other math works, many other teams competing in this math works complication did if it could be applied because the foreman of this competition is actually it's a 14 hour sprint during which we address the address the problem challenge and then we write a 20 page paper on it. so the depth of
4:25 pm
the research in the math modeling is not necessarily to a point where we could immediately apply it. but when you have so many talented high schoolers from across the nation w which are applicable to the real world, and with just perhaps a little bit more work. they could definitely be applied to increase internet equity on bandwidth for the future. all right, so you've made it past the first two rounds. you and your team have here. one final hurdle to clear and that comes this monday. i understand when a panel of professional mathematicians. they're going to review all of your work and then ultimately make a decision on who the champion is in this competition, and there is quite a bit of scholarship money on the line. you feeling about this? what one of the models say about your likelihood of winning. well we're feeling pretty great to be honest, we
4:26 pm
think one it was just a great experience, no matter how it how it goes in the files. getting together and beinghat wo the real world was just we had a really fantastic time doing, you is the fact that we think our model is very unique and how it models internet prices in the future, as well as one of the other questions, which was distributing a cell towers over a certain geography. we think that we have we have created a model that does does a really great job of that. and between the time when we competed in the first round in this upcoming round on monday, we've also been able to refine our model a little bit. tackle a few of its weaknesses and make it even more accurate tour. we're excited to present on monday. so what i hear is you got a good shot at taking this thing. i'm wishing wishing you and your team the best of luck come monday. really appreciate you coming on to talk about the work you've been doing, elliot change a senior with a new way of a ol in san matteo elliot.
4:27 pm
thank you so much. appreciate it. thanks for having me. all right, okay. smart kid with amazing ideas, all right, we'll still had an effort to get younger people vaccinated, the incentives being rolled out. just stop the spread of the virus. and it's more people here in the bay area head back to work. will they choose to hop on bart up next? we'll talk with the bard official about how the agency is planning to get riders to return. chevy is america's fastest-growing full-line brand. and people are taking it everywhere. taking trailblazer outdoors. confidently taking on new places with equinox. and taking on more with silverado. whatever you do, there's a perfect chevy to take you anywhere. find your perfect chevy and get up to 17% of msrp

4:30 pm
the sooner you sign up the more you save. states will now the focus is shifting on young people as fox's david lee miller explains. this comes as a new covid-19 surge is accelerating in several states about 135 million americans have gotten at least one covid vaccine dose, and the program is still expanding. we hit our 200 million shot this week and 80% of seniors, teachers and health care workers are at least partially vaccinated. now the focus turns to young people thought to be the main drivers of a new spike in cases in many areas. health care officials are winding down operations at big vaccination sites in favor of more targeted outreach. we are going to potentially downsized them because while we're trying to shift towards is vaccines in the community that we're also doing at home, it vaccinations. they were offp motivate the public, including special vaccine only sections of some major league ballparks. the los angeles dodgers are
4:31 pm
introducing the program at their home game this weekend and vaccinated fans say they're looking forward to enjoying the game. without social distancing. they want to get everybody vaccinated. you know, they want to get back to real opening everything you know, and we basically just want to get back to normal. but there are still concerns about supply. the johnson and johnson vaccine remains on hold in the u. s as investigators look into a series of rare blood clots but oversees the vaccine is being rolled out quickly after european regulators. gave the green light. it should not have a major impact on the vaccine pushed. they are relatively easy vaccines to use, and for that reason they will be used worldwide cdc advisory committee is scheduled to meet on friday for a vote on the johnson and johnson vaccine in new york. david lee miller, ktvu fox two news now, according to the now has the lot rate 30 cases per 100,000
4:32 pm
people. now the state is averaging about 2000 new cases each day test positivity is down to 1.5% and hospitalizations or down to just over 2100 people. hawaii is the only state with a lower in fact. back now to that developing news that we told you about at the top of the newscast. pleasant hill police now searching for a 10 year old girl who's been missing. emma was last seen near vesting road and gary road around 12 30 this afternoon and as we take a live picture of that neighborhood here, this is where we're being told that police are searching for the little girl. she is four ft nine and weighs £80. she was last seen wearing great camouflage jogger pants had a great long sleep shirt. again. we're being told that police in pleasant hill searching an area for a little girl 10 years old. her name is emma, who has now been reported missing. as we take a look at these live pictures. you can see a few
4:33 pm
police vehicles in this neighborhood again where this little girl has been reported missing. will continue to stay on top of this story and bring you any developments as they become available. well, bart passengers are slowly returning to the system, but ridership is still down more than eight. the 5% from where it was before the pandemic. today bart's board met to discuss the financial future of the transit agency with a focus on safety and ramping up service for more. we're joined now by bart board member janice li jen. it's good to have you on today. appreciate your time. obviously an important meeting held today, but you know you, you obviously understand. they're they're still our ah lot of people who might be hesitant about about using bart once again. even folks who used to regularly in the past. so what is the agency doing to try to convince people to use the system? once again? it convinced them that it's safe to ride. absolutely thank you
4:34 pm
so much for having me here today s o at today's bart board meeting. we had an update around our budget as we get ready to pass our next year's budget. numbers in the rough, you know, we were just presented with numbers that show that starting fiscal year 2020 and over that, you know these three years we're coming to a one billion under revenue loss based on pre covid numbers, so the last was really huge, but we know that our writers want to come back. i hear so much from so many people how much they miss bart and how is part of people's normal routine? and we know that we need to bring our writers back ? we have been doing a really great job. our frontline workers have been doing such a great job in the future. our system is safe for writers return. we're running really good, high quality service so that there's not room for people socially distance. and the numbers, you know, come to bear. right? we've we've had zero covid does and only about 150 positive cases amongst our employees, and we're using the
4:35 pm
best the you know the top level science to make sure our system is safer. you are writers are employees and the general public. all right, so as we slowly emerged from the pandemic, you know, i understand that bart is going to want to look to increase service put potentially by by later on this year in the fall, you want to get some more trains back out there. what are some of the options for increasing service that the board is considering? yeah. great question. so at our last bark word beating, we received a presentation about future service scenarios. the great news is levels of service where we're coming upon almost 100% service restoration. will you be back to our 15 minute headways? that pete commute time. we're gonna be running more transferring the weekends s o. whether you're you know, going back to work a couple days a week or you're trying to catch his game. bart is going
4:36 pm
to be there for you. and we want you back and we've got great service for you. all right. you know you you just talked about bart's budget, and despite that, that steep drop in ridership that obviously you experienced during the pandemic, you've been able to balance the budget for the upcoming fiscal year. thanks of course, in large part to the stimulus funds from from the federal government that have come down, but but what happens if not enough, bart riders returned to using the system and you don't get that that revenue from those writers. yeah. so you know, even up until now, bart has been been doing a lot to really be thoughtful about taxpayer dollars, right? like we are public. good we're public service, where public transit agency. so we've been really aggressive our cost cutting measures. we had a hiring freeze rightd less fall,a retirement incentive program. this is allowing bar to save millions of dollars in expenses without having to push for any layoffs. on dis is important so
4:37 pm
that we can run service to bring a writer's back s o were really, you know, betting big that running good service and running. more training is going to bring our riders back. um and we know that we are being boosted by a lot of federal dollars. they're coming in to allow us to balance our budget. we obviously have to make really tough choices ahead if we're not able to bring back that ridership, but i know that people are getting vaccinated. we just heard those numbers. we know that people are eager to spend time and go to ball games and go events to spend time with her family and their friends. on. we want bart to be there for you on. we want you to come back to ride. well, yeah, it certainly you're seeing a lot more traffic on the freeway so that you know that's one way that folks folks decide. maybe they want to get on get on bart instead to get where they need to go. finally here before i let you go. i know that bart had a fare hike scheduled to take effect does have a fare hike that's scheduled to take effect in january of next year in 2022.
4:38 pm
what's the likelihood that that is going to get pushed back? yes o. r is already playing on postponing any kind of fare hike. um these fair high expectations that we've already decided as part of an inflation based fare increases but recognizing the situation, you know the fact that folks are really trying to save every dollar they can. we know that transportation costs are part of that. we want to be very writer centered art, and so we're looking at postponing that fare hike on dwyer. also looking at, you know, doing some promotional discounts, another things to really bring our writers back. and you know, on the bar chord. that's something that i absolutely and pushing for, because we want you to come back to bar and we know we have to incentivize that. yeah absolutely have to entice folks to come back, but certainly it's a great way to get around the bay area really appreciate you coming on and having the conversation that's bart board member janice lee. thanks for doing it. thank you so much. sonoma. these and
4:39 pm
other pollinators are in trouble. a look at the declining populations in ways that you can help this dwindling resource. it's all coming up, but are giving day drive on this earth day, and bury whether we will be tracking another round of fog tonight. it's um mild temperatures cooled a mild temperatures in your friday forecast, but the weekend finally, some rain. we'll have more on those rain chances coming up.
