schedule, you're going to be delayed, be late and really upset. >> the frustration may be amplified when linkedin moves 3,000 employees into its now campus at 555 north matilda avenue. the 560,000 square foot property is only about a half mile from highway 101. not far away is headquarters in menlo park off the 101. while the city of sun of sunnyv looking forward to the revenue it will bring commuters have a different take on the situation. >> there is another 15 minutes to the commute. so yeah, every time a new building opens it slows it down further. >> wow. that's kind of -- you got to find some other way to go a little faster than 101. >> we've got real serious problems with congestion and no one's addressing it. >> linked in has its name on a building that is basically next

[ female announcer ] wells fargo. together we'll go far.
>> decision 2012, likability, credibility and empathy. can mitt romney reshape his image tonight. a very important night, perhaps his most important speech and he is taking center stage in the next hour. >> steve continues our coverage from the republican convention in tampa. romney needs to deliver but the question is, is dirty harry going to be making mitt romney's day? >> you know, i think raj nailed it before the break when he
called this mitt's moment. no question about it. the party is counting on him. in the run-up, in the approximately one hour before mr. romney comes out a lot of his friends from his church, from the business world, one after another attesting to how caring and how great a guy he is. the republican insiders here say when it's romney's turn to talk about romney, don't look for him to try to remake his personalities or change his message. they say you shouldn't, instead what they want to hear from him, more importantly, what they want undecided voters to see is what some call true mitt. he looked relaxed this afternoon appearing with paul ryan for a photo with gop staffers at the stage where he will speak tonight. but the pressure is on mitt romney. after seven years of running for president, winning the gop
nomination, mitt romney reluctant to talk about his life, his finances or his faith, still has to introduce himself to many americans tonight. >> i think that this is an extraordinary opportunity right now for the governor to reach voters who say i heard a lot about this guy and some of the policy debates but i don't know much about him personally. i want to learn what makes this guy tick. >> romney trails president obama in what pollsters call likability and empathy. many feeling he doesn't care about them. romney running mate 42-year-old paul ryan joked last night, 65-year-old romney is not cool. >> there are the songs in his ipod which i heard on the campaign bus and i heard it on many hotel elevators. >> ryan insisted romney is caring and competent despite what democrats claim. >> you see, some people cannot be dragged down by the usual
cheap tactics because their character, ability, and plain decency are so obvious, and ladies and gentlemen, that is mitt romney. >> convention planners reconfigured the stage, lowering the podium, bringing it closer to the delegates, to help mitt romney better personalize himself with voters watching. so far most voters are not watching this convention. about 20 million on average so far this week on all the broadcasts and cable channels. taylor hicks is singing tonight. this place is rocking but this isn't being broadcast to most american homes. what these republicans hope is that at 10:00 eastern, 7:00 pacific, millions of americans say hey, let's take a look which for many will abfirst look at mitt romney and the folks here
think that voters will like what they see and hear. reporting live from the rnc in tampa, steve handelsman, nbc bay area news. back to you. >> thank you very much, steve. this convention ends with as you heard with romney's acceptance speech tonight but will it go out with a bang or with a whimper. >> let's bring in our political analyst. larry, your thoughts. we'll talk about how this will change in the next 60 minutes. so far what's the take away? >> first, unity. the elgats have come together, they mended fences, made their common goal the replacement of democratic president barack obama more important than anything else. second, purpose. the speakers have been given to delegates key messaging why they must win and third, publicity. the convention has served as a huge infomercial like the democrat counterpart will with the intent of broadening these
themes to viewers particularly in the critical swing states. >> let's talk about the speakers. ann romney, condoleezza rice, paul ryan, obviously each one of them is there to highlight something specific about romney. >> this whole thing is choreographed so well. each speaker has put with the specific person. ann romney speaking to her husband's attributes. part of her logic was to reach women, a lagging area for republicans. look at condoleezza rice there to remind delegates of the public policy successes. she's a woman also helps. then we have paul ryan. he had two roles. one to introduce himself to the nation and two, to put barack obama and the viewers on notice that the president's policies have failed and republicans had workable alternatives. >> in the next 30 or 40 minutes mitt romney will take the stage,
running for about seven years now. why don't we know him and what can he do tonight specifically? >> it's his moment. part of his speech will be somewhat autobiographical. romney will attempt to define himself. first of his speech, a sense of his vision for the country, where he wants to take us, and why he's the better choice. a comparison between failed policies and new choices. more than themes, more than policies, romney must appear genuine and caring to the public, something many americans haven't according to the polls. more than anything tonight is his opportunity to create that comfort level and that's a must do. whether he does it we'll have to wait and see. >> larry, thank you. >> moving on we go to the tropical depression, that's what it is, isaac left its mark on the gulf coast in several towns, the only way residents can reach their homes is by boat.
you see some of the video here more than a million people are said to be without power, and in some parts of louisiana isaac has done more damage than hurricane katrina. >> hard to fathom. i say i was prepared but i think i'm still numb. hasn't hit me yet. absolutely worse than katrina. >> a normal person can't concei conceive. probably kill them. >> officials are intending to breach a levee forcing evacuations of 60,000 people in southern louisiana and mississippi t storm is expected to hit central arkansas tomorrow morning. >> new information out about the suspect at the center of the colorado massacre. we're learning that james holmes tried calling his psychiatrist nine minutes before the fatal shooting took place. dr. lynn said she could be reached at the number but she was not aware that she called
before the attack. she said her doctor/patient relationship was limited to one meeting. today's court hearing focused on whether investigators can have access to a note book sent to her by homes believed to contain descriptions of the attack. the defense attorney says the book should be off limits because it's protected under doctor/patient laws. holmes is accused of killing 12 and injuring 58 others. a school district is giving itself an a. for the fifth year in a row the district has reduced the number of chronically absent students. the key to the success, a point program involving school officials tracking attendance and the d.a.'s office following up with parents. the d.a. stressed the significance of keeping kids in
school, that 94% of the young murder victimses were all high school drop-outs. >> pg&e is fending off criticism again. the new chairman announced that pg&e is spending $250 million on short-term improvements but the news comes as there are new revelations about what pg&e is paying the victims in the san bruno blast. let's bring in stephanie. >> 82-year-old wendy -- glenndell lived in a house that burned down. promises aren't enough and the utility progress on safety upgrades isn't enough as we approach the 2-year anniversary of the day she says will always haunt her. >> i saw this huge ball of fire. everything was ablaze, i'm shaking just thinking about it. >> linda was 80 years old when the pipe line blew right in front of her house. >> the young woman that was burned to death was on the other
corner. >> it's too much for her to return to. she has moved to foster city, one of hundreds of plaintiffs who sued over the blast. the company says it has settled seven of eight suits involving death and most of the serious injury suits, including one that was posted by a san mateo court on line. the times reports the settlement documents show that pg&e paid a teen victim $1.8 million. >> i don't think $1.8 million covered anything that this woman or young woman had to go through. >> but the pg&e chairman and ceo says his company is taking strides to improve safety. pg&e will spend $250 million on short-term improvement in addition to the 1.5 billion shareholders have already spent. >> the pressure testing in the
immediate aftermath of the tragedy, the company spent a lot of money to assist the victims, people who lost their houses and things like that. >> he says the utility will commit 5 billion to its pipe line safety enhancement plan. but rate payers may shoulder 85%. and stands to make a profit. pg&e says it's business. their investors need a return. it's not enough for karn he says the house she lived in was destroyed. adding she still has nightmares and has to undergo counseling indefinitely. >> there is a lot of recovery still for the people of san bruno. >> pg&e says it will likely spend $455 million on the san brun lawsuits. for the california public utilities commission, criminal investigation in san bruno.

the effects of the fog at the coast, it's going to hang out they think about the next two days. that will keep some of the fog in place and slightly cooler air that will push all of the warm air off to the south and east. so yes, you know the drill. this will mean more fog for the morning, temperatures in the 50s and 60s, even some areas of fog across the mountains and the peninsula. then back for the interior valleys instead of 90s, more with 70s and 80s. here's the good part. by saturday we'll have slight warming so looks like your labor day weekend is not going to be fogged in. we may get beach weather. fog and the coast, marin, also napa counties, low clouds back to the east bay, by the afternoon it could be one of those days we find areas of fog and also the north bay. overall we'll begin with temperatures in the mid-50s. if you're traveling we want to highlight that major rainfall
