those controversial trending stories. >> a lot of questions about what's the formula. >> there is a lot more humanity than facebook was letting on. facebook released the instructions it gives to news employees. the documents marked for internal use only show the process by which employees are supposed to pick the stories that show up as trending. the first culling is done by computers looking at the number of hits, the rest is the process as we reported, done by people. zuckerberg and facebook came under fire after a blogger said sometimes they quash stories favorable to conservatives. "wall street journal" says this morning zuckerberg plans to meet with conservatives to smooth things over. it's note clear who those conservatives are. uber is back in federal court in san francisco fighting a coalition of cab owners in los
angeles who claim cabs are safer than ride share. there is irony here in uber used to say uber was safer than cabs. uber has a particular problem with one cab company. uber says postal reviews online they are fake. one review the cab company featured on the cab's website from richard talking about how great l.a. city cabs are. this is the picture posted. if you're saying, i know that guy. that's tom from my space, you're right. score one for uber in federal court. >> last month uber agreed to stop saying it was the safest way to get a ride. >> to football news. electronic arts says the patriots ron gronkowski will be the cover of madden 17. there used to be a madden curse.

legitimate. our cameras were there when police returned the camera to the veterans' hall. >> i hollered to my wife, they found our gun. >> the one ton cannon has been sitting out of the veterans' hall since the 1940s. police are still looking for whoever stole it. >> history there, too. >> do i have to go through all my cannons? >> there's only one you've got to care about. >> that's true. >> we are not going to melt out there, temperatures are coming down. >> yes. it will be cooler today. for the most part, clouds will hover along the coast. as we take a live look san francisco, cloudy skies there
into the next couple of hours. those clouds will linger. also as we take a look at san francisco from castro, you see that same view looking gloomy to start off this friday morning. it will be a beautiful afternoon. a look at our microclimates. 56 in the peninsula. 7:00 in the south bay. as we drop in to get a closer look, 7:00 in morgan hill 58. temperatures will go from the 50s, more clearing by 10:00. 11:00 it's bright and sunny into the low 60s and upper 60s today. feeling very nice. there is a cold front on the way. that could give us a few changes in time for the weekend. as this starts to move in, we'll see the cloud cover increasing by early tomorrow morning. we could also have a few spotty showers for early morning showers. this will not ruin your saturday
plans. it quickly moves on through. it will be hit or miss and we will get afternoon sunshine. we'll do it all over sunday with morning clouds and clearing throughout the day. temperaturewise we are looking at 60s today. north bay in san francisco, 70s for tri-valley and south bay. beautiful weather for this weekend. for the bay to breakers sunday, race starts early in the morning. fog and drizzle. 55. cool to start then throughout the afternoon, the sun starts to come out and we'll have some low 60s for the high later that day. i'll have another look at the forecast. over to mike to give us a view of what's happening on roadways. >> we'll start out with our live look. much slowing because of that volume. northbound showing build up toward 680.
over toward the airport is the yellow. southbound side. yellow on the northbound side. yellow arrow on the southbound side. there we go. there is a crash report there. should clear from the roadway. maybe the flashing lights might be the distraction coming toward me. we are looking at another incident. a little slowing into hayward. north of there, there is an incident reported with debris 880 at washington. no slowing shows up there or castro valley. that is a great commute. we see the rest of the bay bridge approach. a crash still reported eastbound 80. no slowing there. no slowing for the north bay. a live look at the bay bridge shows you the backup. easing up here. metering lights are on. look at that.
went well and looking forward to working with the presumptive republican nominee. trump and ryan are still far apart on issues that concern the economy, planned parenthood and trade. >> from here we go deeper into the policy areas to see where that common ground is and make sure we are operating off the same core principles. >> hillary clinton did not comment on mr. trump's meetings with the republican leaders yesterday, but senator bernie sanders did he said the republicans are still very divided. >> they've got a serious problem, an extreme right wing party dealing with a guy who is changing his views every day. >> in the race for the democratic nomination, sanders still trails hillary clinton by hundreds of delegates. sanders promises to take his campaign all the way to the convention. 6:25. today the obama administration will direct every public school across the country to allow transgender students to use the rest room that matches their
gender identity. >> this as the battle is waging in north carolina over that issue. edward lawrence joining us live from washington, d.c. schools that don't comply could lose federal funding. >> we are talking about millions of dollars in federal funding. this affects not only public schools but also most colleges and universities. there will be a strongly worded language letter coming out today from the federal government telling those schools they have to comply. otherwise they will lose federal funding. this means schools will have to make accommodation for transgender students when it comes to locker rooms and bathrooms. this directive comes days after north carolina and theç federa government sued each other over north carolina's law regarding bathrooms. the white house says it will not stop funding to north carolina until the lawsuits are settled. historically states have backed off when the federal government says they are going to take
money away from them. this has not happened in north carolina's case. this guideline by the federal government for schools starts today. there is no word on if the funding will be cut off if there is a violation. that could happen. we might have that announcement later on today to see the timing of the federal funding that could be cut off if there is a violation. live in washington, edward lawrence. back to you. coming up next on today in the bay, we continue to track breaking news out of san jose. investigators shut down a shopping center looking for evidence in an early morning homicide. bob redell to take you back here live in concord to tell what you firefighters are saying about this fire that killed a man and his dog.

inhalation. one of the challenges for firefighters was a power line down across this driveway in front of you. the fire appears to have started in the garage and spread to a portion of the rest of the house. the garage was so involved when they arrived, once they sprayed water on it, the roof collapsed. the wife told them her husband might still be inside. firefighters made entry into the house that at this point was full of smoke. sometimes the rescuers had to get down on their hands and knees. took about ten minutes before they finally found the man. pulled him out. transported him to the hospital where he was declared dead. >> that's our job. our job is to save people's lives, do what we can, enter
structures if necessary to try and find them and rescue them if that's possible. >> the fire department doesn't think they could have gotten to the man in time even if they weren't delayed by downed power lines. a family dog was killed in the fire. smoke detectors are inside. the fire department said it wasn't clear whether they are working or no you see a restoration company out here boarding up this home. front part destroyed. there is a lot in the back that wasn't i asked the fire inspector if it was suspicious. only thing he would tell us, it was under investigation. >> bob, thank you very much. 6:34 on your friday. a bay area man missing for ten years has been found but it was not the news his family was
hoping for. investigators identified 24-year-old jack dupuis' remains. a body found four years ago is dupuis. workers discovered that body in an orchard. ten years later dna testing led to an identification. >> it was like getting hit with it all at once all over again. literally getting punched in the stomach. >> investigators do not know who killed him or why. 6:35. the sierra lamar murder case could move forward today. torres is accused of killing the morgan hill teenager. it's not clear if a trial date will be set today. sierra lamar disappeared on her way to school in morgan hill four years ago. dna evidence links torres to that crime. community alert about the

redmond knew the victims and no information about a motive has been released. we know the name of the man san jose police officer shot while he allegedly attacked his mother with an axe. he's been identified as 26-year-old daniel ronezuski. attacked his mother. they opened fire because they were worried the suspect would kill his mother. both are expected to survive. the son suffers from mental illness. a transgender san francisco high school catholic teacher is going to keep his job. mercy high school teacher was allowed to stay by theered of the nuns that run the school. the nuns say they support the dignity of each person regardless of race, religion or gender identification. 6:37. a student is facing expulsion and teacher on administrative leave after a violent on campus confrontation. cell phone video caught 30

a lucky person to catch the sight of humpback whales, but a warning to people about getting too close. i want to show you some cutting edge technology. this is a vhs tape. push that tape in and hit play. this is a flip phone. have you seen these before? it's called a compact disc. oh. looks like we're getting a facsimile. what year is ito you? it's old. you'd rather use newer technology? definitely. well, i've got something to show you. this is the 2016 chevy volt. it uses extended range electric technology. the prius hybrid uses battery technology developed 15 years ago.
pumpbacks. they are a whale watching favorite they breach, jump out of the water or slap the water with their fin or tail. i spoke with a woman hiking here and she just saw that happen. the message, keep your distance. the message comes after we saw some of that behavior getting too close yesterday. our chopper captured on camera the two humpback whales swimming by the bridge. we saw a wind surfer and kite boarder getting too close. anything inside of 100 yards is too close. according to the endangered species act, you cannot do8m> do not approach them at a quick rate of speed. we can run parallel with them. if they start changing course a
lot, that means we are bothering them. >> he says the humpback whales coming into the bay this time of year is unusual. linking this to el nino and climate change. it's unclear how long the whales will be here in the bay. the law is clear what you face if you don't stay 100 yards away. you could face fines ranging $10,000 to $100,000. on the more serious side, you could spend time in jail. that is extreme. enjoy the show, they seem to be here in the bay, but do it from at least 100 yards away. >> stay safe and watch it here on nbc today in the bay. moments ago, honda said it would add another 21 million cars to its recall list over takata air bags. >> this is coming on top of last week's massive recall
announcement. >> may 4, u.s. regulators announced a recall of 30 million cars of all kinds of makes and models. we don't know which will be added to this recall. the defecti ivive takata air ba caused a staggers 60 million cars to be added to the recall. this is acia out of massachusetts. it is priced above expectations. the markets are mildly higher. we are watching apple up a nickel. it's been suffering lately. an analyst says he thinks shares in amazon could hit $1,000. macy's had disastrous numbers. many looking at amazon as more innovative than apple. donald trump tells fox news if he becomes president, he'll direct the justice department to investigate amazon as a monopoly. this comes as he becomes more and more frustrated with "the
washington post." jeff bezos also owns "the washington post." >> every hour we are getting calls from reporters from "the washington post" asking ridiculous questions. i will tell you, this is owned as a toy by jeff bezos who controls controls amazon. he is using "the washington post" for power so politicians in washington don't tax amazon like they should be taxed. >> trump says if he becomes president, he will open up libel rules so people like him can sue reporters if they write purposefully negative articles. we'll continue to watch this. >> reporters shouldn't be writing purposefully negative articles. an op-ed is one thing. >> right. he says they are out to get him in their coverage. >> that is what he is saying. jeff bezos says i own "the washington post" separately. i'm a large shareholder in
amazon. we should watch when big capitalists own media, as well. that is something worth watching. >> a glimpse at the trump president. thank you very much. >> if there will be one. we'll see. let's talk baseball and it's going to the cats. >> into the arms of a fan there. made that big dash across. fans followed that cat into his arms. they do have claws. funny thing. we've seen a lot of cats on the ice recently. go to your local shelter. >> it was bold to scoop the cat
up. >> it's a feral cat. >> he might have been afraid, too. >> we start out with clouds. we will have sunshine. nothing to worry about. take a look at this shot. beautiful start to our friday morning. we are also going to see more of the sun peeking through as we go through today. look at some of these temperatures now. 7:00 in the east bay and south bay. 56 in the peps la and san francisco. as we drop in on the north bay, petaluma 49. novato at 51. vallejo at 60. in berkeley there will be clouds 10:00 or 11:00 this morning. the sun starts to come out. temperatures warming up to the 60s by 2:00. it will be into the mid 60s there later on today. a look at the microclimates and
seven-day first at the bottom of the screen. you see temperatures will come down from where we were the past couple of days. we had low 80s. wide range in temperatures. yesterday we had 50s along the coast and 90s inland. we are looking at something a little bit more even all across the board. 71 in los gatos. 74 in san ramon. tomorrow there will be this area of low pressure moving in that will bring us minor changes for the weekend. an increase in cloud cover early tomorrow morning starts out with sprinkles. then we'll see that all clearing out as we go through the day. this is what it looks like with splotches of green there. nothing to cancel outdoor plans. looking at gray skies to start out the day. the weekend forecast shows temperatures will be in the 60s and low 70s today. then the weekend pretty much no
changes. temperatures in the mid 50s. peeks of sun once again from many west. is it still looking great on the roadways, mike? >> looking great except one key spot. this is a critical factor. behind me here you see this is the westbound direction jamming up on the san mateo bridge. the sign hidden by that railing talks about how you need to share the road. motorcyclists are out there. there is reports of a motorcycle down on the span itself. >> there may be that motorcycle crash. i'm watching and i saw the slowing happen westbound toward that highrise.
watching both directions on the map right now. we see the commute shows the slowing. waiting for chp to let us know which direction has one lane blocked by the motorcycle crash. dunbarton picks up the volume. these two bridges are slow compared to the rest of the bay's commute. a smoother drive for the rest of the area. 101 shows we are starting to see that slowdown 101 up to mckey. earlier crash took a couple of minutes to clear and causing slowing. the rest of silicon valley shows a slight build. 6:53. an update to breaking news we've been following all morning long. homicide investigators wrapping up a scene at a south bay shopping center. as the search continues for whoever stabbed a man to death in san jose. a live report from the scene next.

before you head out the door, here are the top stories on the nbc bay area. >> kris sanchez on the scene of a deadly stabbing in san jose. we understand police just cleared that area? >> the police patrol car just left the area. we know that now they gathered all the evidence here, they can turn their focus to secure any surveillance video that might be available. there could be quite helpful video because there are so many businesses in this plaza. that could reveal what led up to the moment where that man was stabbed once and died here at the tropicana plaza.
homicide and crime scene investigators were here gathering clues. without knowing what the motive was, whether it was related to gang activity or robbery, hard to say whether the public is at risk. >> there is a killer at large and we are working diligently to identify and apprehend that person. >> kris sanchez, today in the bay. thank you. she mentioned that was the 17th homicide victim of the year. thanks for that report. lanes of interstate 80 were shut down overnight. all eastbound lanes of hercules because of police activity. we are working to find outer who from the chp. here is what we do know. there was a crash at 10:30 last night. one person was taken to a hospital. investigators are not releasing that person's condition.
