6:06 pm
pressing for the move. it's the first time they have been recognized for immigration relief but the decision to grant reprieves would still be considered on a case by case basis. well, it's nearly october but tomorrow is a spare the air day and it's going to feel like summer. jeff ranieri joins me in the weather center with a look at this. it's going to be a little sizzler. >> that's right. for the next few days we have a multi-layered heat event. we're going to start by putting this in perspective. when san francisco starts to get warm, then we definitely have hot weather inland. today it was not warm. it was 65. this time last year we had 90. no doubt, september is, as many of you know, can get very warm. what we're expecting by this sunday is temperatures in the mid-to upper 70s. so above average near record setting for parts of the coastline but definitely not super hot. we're not expecting 90s to 100s at the coastline. but overall, what we're also
6:07 pm
looking at here is high pressure building in that will produce plenty of hot weather inland. that's where it's going to be most crucial, especially into sunday and monday with increased fire danger, a slight offshore wind, a few 100s possible and then if you are headed out to the beach, more milder weather and dangerous rip currents. let's get a look at our biggest concern as we head throughout the weekend. we're going to have unhealthy levels of the ozone and if you have allergies it's going to be tough. again, this saturday, sunday, even into monday. excessive heat watch already been issued for sunday and monday. that looks like the hottest stretch of weather for us. this includes the north bay, south bay, and also for the east bay and this does seem like commonsense information but we all need to remember when it gets this hot, drink plenty of water. take frequent breaks with your kids and also remember those pets. so, again, sunday and monday,
6:08 pm
some of the hottest weather. we'll detail these temperatures coming up throughout the show. >> jeff, thank you. see you shortly. smoke in a willow glen home is being credited of saving the lives of a mother and daughter this morning. the house went up in flames just before 7:00 a.m. the house is located on mull berry lane near meridian. the fire had burned through the attic. the smoke detector jolted the mother and daughter out of their sleep. both women were able to escape along with the family dog. the husband had already left for work. no word yet on what caused the fire. b.a.r.t. coming to the south bay. steel beams are in place as crews are on the job. this is the scene in fremont. huge beams are stacked up for this massive construction project. before the trains can travel, workers will have to widen mission boulevard between 880 and warm springs boulevard. they will also build on and off ramps because warren avenue will be routed underneath the tracks. >> we either have b.a.r.t. going
6:09 pm
under or over so in this case we were depressing warren avenue underneath the future b.a.r.t. operations and a significant added benefit it is will be depressed underneath the current railroad operations. >> this is what warren avenue will look like when the work is finished by 2018th is a joint project shared by the city of fremont, alameda county and the vta. closing two campus in the hope of avoiding a possible shutdown, san francisco city college will shut the castro campus instructional site. the classes held there will be relocated. they are hoping to save money and rent on operating costs. cool trustees made the decision last night as part of a plan to keep the school from losing its accreditation last year. the acrediting team blamed the school for going beyond its
6:10 pm
means. >> no doubt about it, it looks scary and violent. but it was just a drill. specialists in response training put on masks and carried prop guns as san jose city college, students, and staff rehearsed where to go and what to do under threat. the exercise would have been unthinkable just over a decade ago but now it's become a common safety measure. >> this is one of many different kind of training sessions we've had to prepare the students and faculty for any kind of an emergency situation. today's training is focused on the active shooting training. so it's very important that we have these regularly and that we encourage all faculty and staff to participate. >> most of today's training focused on what to do in the first few minutes before law enforcement arrives. well, still ahead tonight, a dramatic scene in downtown oakland after a crash involving the city truck sent several

a massive critical mass right during rush hour in san francisco. thousands upon thousands of cyclists from all over the country are gathering in the plaza to celebrate the 20th anniversary of that ride. even people from out of the country. organizers say there's no planned route. it's a movement literally on the move. san francisco police say expert patrols, including officers on bicycles will be on duty in case of any trouble. drivers, though, will likely experience the biggest inconvenience in all of these
6:14 pm
years. if not, be patient because cyclists are going to be all around here. >> it is a rolling bike ride, if you will, through the city. so there are no set plans, there are no set routes. basically we just kind of follow them and just essentially monitor this event to make sure that everyone's rights are being respected and that there are no violent confrontations. >> critical mass is held every month but this is the mother of all rides. san francisco event has inspired similar rides across other cities and many have changed their policies regarding bicycling commuting. it's really taken off, from 60% in 2006. is your iphone flawed? a lot of people say yes and today apple's ceo apologized. the new map application, not up to apple standards. but here is the twist.
6:15 pm
apple's old map system was doing just fine. so what now? let's talk to scott budman. >> apple took a risk, pushing aside the more established google maps for it its own newer map app. apple maps have been flawed and today apple's ceo tim cook apologized to its users. he and apple are, quote, extremely sorry, unquote, for the mapping mistakes. while apple fixes the problem, users should use competing maps to get around. and blogging about a security breach in android phones that compete with the iphone, when opened it can clear all of the data off of samsung htc, motorola, and sony ericson phones.
6:16 pm
a secure update has been put into place. if all of this makes you want to get away from it all and go on vacation, scuba diving from the deep on your computer. >> reporter: as the divers swim smoothly through the great barrier reef, his cameras snaps thousands of pictures. soon to become this, an interactive underwater map brought to you by the google street view team. >> this is just like street view in that you can navigate around, look all over the place and really experience it for yourself. >> reporter: a great idea, says the owner of diver dan's. >> 90% of the population doesn't dive. >> reporter: after all, if more people see these videos, they might be tempted to take the plunge. >> maybe in the great barrier
6:17 pm
reef of australia, hawaiian reefs, just the spectacular things that i see underwater, hopefully we can share that with the whole world. >> we went to google headquarters to see how the street view team is taking its act off the road and underwater, heading to hawaii. here's a peak of what you'll find. >> capturing turtles and mantra rays, you can see those just like you do in street view. >> reporter: diving for data to help you find your way. >> google street view has seen six underwater spots so far. >> i'll take it from here. thanks, scott. high-powered racing yachts will be back on the water for next summer's america cup. the field of international racing teams were on the bay
6:18 pm
today practicing. they are going to have plenty of company on the water next week. they will be sharing the bay with fleet week. you have boats, jets, everything. fleet week, of course, features the air show and a parade of military ship. race organizers say that the events will give them a chance to introduce the regatta to a whole new audience. >> with the concert going on and everything, it's a really big weekend in san francisco and there's a huge opportunity for us to show people what the america's cup is all about. >> should be a lot of fun. fleet week taking up the marina green, they are setting up their space. the races run from october 4th to the 7th. we know it's going to be warm inland but let's ask jeff ranieri how it is going to be in the city? >> well, we're going to get a gradual warmup through part of san francisco. livermore will see temperatures near 100 degrees this weekend. it will usually eke out warmth for the headlines.
6:19 pm
we're not going to be close to that all-time hottest temperature in september for livermore. 115 degrees but it's definitely going to be h-o-t for a lot of you out there. so warm that an excessive heat watch has been issued. it's going to be peaking out for us with slight offshore winds. this includes the north bay, south bay, and east bay. in the zone from 95 to 101-degree heat. here are heat tips. we brought them to you earlier. it seems commonsense but definitely great advice. drink plenty of water, take frequent breaks if you're outside and don't forget the pets. let's bring you outside to the hd camera. some of the haze has been pushed out from fog in san francisco. it's been cloudy. it's been cool. but as a lot of you know, even when you have a picture like this, it changes very rapidly. that's what we're expecting over
6:20 pm
the next 48 hours. marine layer is extensive. the key component in getting all of this out of here right now exists with the winds. we've seen it shift more out of the north in a northwesterly direction and you get the hot air building on top of this and that should be a good enough equation as we head throughout the weekend to get us our warming. the only hitch here in not getting super hot temperatures is the area of low pressure across the south and it will keep things cool. not only hot weather but also increased fire danger. for all of you heading out to the event tonight that i'm going to be emceeing, it's called paint the town. here's your personal forecast in the 60s. if you're not familiar with rebuilding together in the silicon valley, they provided very needy and necessary upgrades for people who can't afford it and also accessibility modifications to people's homes. rebuilding together in silicon valley, search them and find a
6:21 pm
lot of information. i'll see all of you out there tonight. for tomorrow, near 80 by the bay and low to mid-90s for the interior valley. saturday is not the hottest day. as we head into sunday and monday, upper 90s to near 100 with an excessive heat watch in effect. raj and jess, there's your warming at the beach. it's not -- i guess you could be in a bikini and shorts. it's not going to be super hot right now. >> thank you, jeff. speaking out after a gruesome injury. brandon mccarthy gives an interview after being hit in the head earlier this month. hackers demanding cash if you want your files back. we look at our your computer could be at risk. back in a moment.

6:24 pm
a notice that says your computer has been frozen and also you pay up, you will be prosecuted. >> it's called ransomware and hackers are making a fortune from it. how you can keep your computer from being hacked. >> it's the modern ransom note and your computer is the hostage. hackers get into your computer, freeze your files and change your passwords. you probably picked up the malware from a risky internet site. once you get it, there are a few things you should definitely not do. it's not the grind their used to at demosport in san rafael. owner steve maryfield worked hard to build his business 27 years ago. >> oh, this doesn't look good. this doesn't look good. >> he's rebuilding it. >> a screen came up that says, you have no access to your server. >> reporter: steve says a hacker
6:25 pm
took over his computer, freezing two programs he uses to track sales and special orders. >> we have hijacked the files, change your file extensions, we've changed your passwords. there's no possibility of accessing this data. >> reporter: but the crooks were kind enough to offer him two options. either spend years trying to decode their hack or regain control for a price. >> you can pay us this ransom starting with $3,000 immediately and $1,000 for every week seven days that you fail to comply. >> we're seeing a dramatic increase in ransomware. >> reporter: why is that? is it profitable? >> yes. they can make 50, $60,000 a day from hitting a couple of countries. >> reporter: the scheme is successful because often the ransom note often likes like an official notice accusing you of a crime. >> you have inappropriate contact, you've stolen content,
6:26 pm
you have child pornography on your machine, even though they've never done t. still that the fbi has said, we found child porn nothingraphy on your screen so we've locked it, that scares people to the core. >> you should never pay a ransom, even if you do regain access to your computer, the hackers have probably dropped other viruses on to your system. the best way to avoid ransomware is to avoid sites that you're not familiar with. we'll show you a program tonight at 11:00. plus, more on the fbi's latest warning on ransomware. >> if you have a tip, call us at 888-996-tips or send an e-mail directly to the unit at president obama's up coming fund-raiser, the musicians and

6:31 pm
walked along a sidewalk in walnut creek. they are scenes that have police sending out warningings. >> watching your speed, paying attention to your surroundings and not being distracted by your electronic devices. the bottom line is, paying attention. >> reporter: the cause of today's crash is still under investigation and while the victims are expected to recover, those who witnessed it are rattled. they say drivers need to be more careful. >> just drive slowly. just take it easy. >> reporter: and you are looking at some of the damage that remains tonight. you can see this parked car was hit as well as a nail salon and an art gallery here on the corner which remained bordered up tonight. i can tell you five of the six victims received minor injuries while one of the victims, a female pedestrian, received serious injuries. again, the cause of the crash is still under investigation. in downtown oakland, i'm jodi

6:35 pm
get an nfl franchise in l.a. the city council in los angeles today unanimously approved plans to develop a 72,000 seat stadium in downtown l.a. it's not a done deal, though. the league still has to approve the deal and as of right now there's no franchise to play in the stadium. they helped to open the stadium by 2017. well, hollywood loves sequels but this one not so much. in less than half an hour from now, carmaggedon 2 gets under way. this is one of the busiest stretches in the country shut down for the entire weekend for repairs and construction and los angeles will apparently survive the carmeggedon. >> the fda is warning people to not buy drugs online. they are selling counterfeit drugs that could actually hurt

free at least, a hawk took off and circled the area several times before saying bye. it took nearly a year to reach this milestone. he had singed feathers on his chest and just couldn't fly. >> he was really stressed out and exhausted i'm sure from the

a few months ago we launched a series profiling the bay area's most dynamic people. are the subject came to us two months ago because of the way he was changing education. since then, almost everyone from the "new york times" to 60 minutes has shared his story. success continues but now there is some criticism. tonight, the interview with salmon con. in the heart of the silicon valley, just down the road from google, is an unmarked maroon door. upstairs, perhaps the most talked about educator in the world. >> the first thing i want to do to complete this square --
6:44 pm
>> with his outdated pc and pen tablet, sal has recorded more than 3400 instructional videos. >> if it does not intersect the x axis, it will have no solutions. >> it's what you are seeing around the world for free. most recently, his khan academy has expanded to a hands-on approach. >> and the collaboration you're doing with los altos, how did that come about? >> san jose just a few cities that are testing this high-tech approach. on approach, it's heavily funded. >> 20% of my brain was in the conversation and the other 80% was saying, you're talking to bill gates right now. do you realize that's bill gates right across the table? bill gates. i'd have to keep suppressing that part. >> do you consider yourself someone that is revolutioning education in a modern way? >> i am excited.
6:45 pm
what is the role of technology, how can it be used to supercharge classrooms. should people be given lectures anymore? so in that way hopefully we have already moved the dial. but i think we're nowhere near our potential. >> are you surprised by the controversy that you have elicited in terms of you changing the way education is in a dangerous direction? >> i think most of the controversy comes from people misperceiving what we are. >> you said you don't really know what you're going to say before a video. if you need to refresh, you'll google for a couple of minutes. you've said that but you've insulted a lot of people by saying that. do you regret it? >> by no means is it an intent to notify anybody or to make it look easy. people should not equate me with the in the trenches work that real teachers have to do. >> why not make it a for-profit
6:46 pm
and make a bunch of money? >> if i were to be very successful as a for-profit, sure, grow fast, get a lot of revenue, maybe we ipo. i could become fairly well off, by some new clothing. and that would be nice. nothing wrong with that. that's great. but then the other opg, especially for this organization, was we could reach -- maybe we could reach a billion people in my lifetime and maybe after i'm gone, if this organization keeps pursing this mission, we could make it like clean drinking water, electricity, what people pekts to have. >> for the bolly wood fans, who is the most famous khan in the world? >> for the time it's not me. >> he's -- >> just like him, you reach a lot of people. >> so i'll take it back in. in the -- well, amongst nonsouth asians, i might be edging him
6:47 pm
out. >> a bright young man. you can find the segment on our website, including web extras with khan. also, his book comes out tuesday. if you're a parent, an educator of any age, it's a good read. so salman khan, bright young man. >> that he is. let's get to the weather. it was very foggy out here today from the north bay to the south bay. and on that low cloud cover we're going to and switching around in foster city, still with us, one of our brand-new sky cameras and getting punched up, we'll see the low cloud cover. there it is in foster city. it's starting to break. i know that's hard for some of the other coastline to really understand at this point.
6:48 pm
we are getting more of an onshore wind and it's kicking on out. in san francisco, you can see that we are fogged in at this moment and it's going to clear in as we head into parts of the weekend. here's the first indication of things starting to shift in the atmosphere and a dry, northerly wind. oakland, san mateo, livermore, down into sunnyvale, that should be good enough to bring us cool weather. by this sunday, and also monday, temperatures look to jump anywhere from 15 to about 25 degrees for parts of the coast, especially down near santa cruz. even record-setting highs as we head through monday's forecast. that said, we don't get any warming through the coastline and it's going to mean hot weather inland temperatures ranging from 95 to 101 degrees. and plenty of breaks here,
6:49 pm
especially on sunday, remember those pets and bring them indoors. high pressure moving in across the west. hot air inland but this area of low pressure offshore, that's what is keeping us from getting too hot. more of a mild situation setting up into sunday, monday, and tuesday. widespread temperatures on the weather board over the next 48 to 72 hours. let's get you into the fog forecast. we've been shouded in the north bay and also for the entire coastline, by 11:00 in the morning, by all indications it looks like the north wind will help to push all of this out, help to dry out the atmosphere and we should be left with sunny skies. 49 in napa and 55 in concord and 56 in livermore. and for saturday, the weekend is almost here. 86 in san jose. 85 in sunnyvale. 90 in gilroy. that's the hottest along with morgan hill.
6:50 pm
east bay, five to ten-degree warmup. 95 in livermore and 95 in walnut creek and for san francisco, looks like we'll do it, go above the 70-degree mark. three-day forecast, we have the hottest weather sunday and monday. monday is going to be a real scorcher for us. also, low to mid-70s remaining at the beaches. as we head throughout wednesday, thursday, and friday, temperatures start to cool on off and we look at a slight chance of a shower into the end of next week but not a big storm. plenty of time for that to change. focus on the weekend and enjoy all of the sunshine and hot air. >> i'm focused. >> i can tell. she's dialed in. >> let's get to sports. jim is here from our comcast sports newsroom. i know we have a big game for the as but more importantly, the pitcher, mccarthy is back.
6:51 pm
>> it's been three weeks since suffering a skull fracture after being hit in the head by a line drive. he spoke for the first time since the injury as the as host a playoff spot on the line. >> it really wasn't -- not like it's a surreal thing. when it happened, i was aware of what happened for the most part and everything after is not fun but i think me and amanda and my family handled it well. it was something we had to get through. more than anything, i was just really thirsty. i couldn't drink water or anything. that's really the one thing i remember from this whole time, being unbelievably thirsty for four days. >> boy, great to see brandon at the ballpark. how about the giants? already winning the title. the attention turns to the pozzi
6:52 pm
