his opponents and so was president trump. democrats brought a united message about re-electing president trump. he has to be a single-term president. >> the best impeachment i beating him in the election of 2020. >> the candidates turned on each other, and kamala harris w. >> you are dipping into the kool-aid and you don't even know the flavor. >> we cannot work this out. the time is up and our house is on fire? >> >> mr. vice president, it looks like one of us has learned lessons from the past and one hasn't. >> on working women -- >> what did you mean when you said when a woman works outside

traffic delays in through meridian avenue, and chp is reporting another crash along 680, northbound 680, it could be a semi versus a car situation. they are not reporting any major injuries and i am not noticing big delays in terms of the speed sensors, and so people tend to slow down to see what is going on. a live look in san jose along 101, both sides moving along just fine. back to you. >> thank you. a new meaning this morning for the saying sleeping with the fishes. >> president trump says that big interest rate cut is not enough, and wall street not happy either. we will take a look when "today in the bay" continues. - hey, mike.

powell to lead the federal reserve. president trump was pushing for a rate cut and he got one but it was not enough. the fed is suppose to cut rates because the inflation was not high enough. let's go to that age-old question, what does it mean for me? the answer is little to nothing. you may have way higher interest rates on your credit cards, and mortgage rates are not directly related, and after all it's only a quarter percent. and all those people that signed up for money to get money from equifax may not get as much as they hoped. you can get free credit monitoring or $125, and most took the money, and the key phrase is "up to," and so the more people that asked for money
means less for each person. 147 million people were hurt, and that's 1 out of every 2 americans. >> i was one of them. >> me, too. >> i wasn't. i was kind of surprised. >> but for those of us, and i d. you know, i typed in i deserve something out of this as well, and if everybody does that, if every person affected does that, it ends up to about 21 cents per person. >> thank you. new this morning, sweet dreams are made of seaweed if you love visiting the monterey bay aquarium. mark your calendars for this one. there's an adult sleepover to honor the aquariums 35th anniversary. the event will include games, sunday bar, games, a photo booth and tickets start at $150.
you have to be 21 years old. they have a lot of kid camp sleepovers there, which is always fun for the kids, but interesting. >> an adult sleepover. >> being 21, that steps up the situation. >> keep it clean. let's look at what we can expect outside, because it's going to be a nice one? >> yeah, great today, and still nice and cool. as we go into the weekend it will start to heat up. let's get a look out there at our cool and refreshing shot of san francisco on this first day of fogust. we will have a wide range of temperatures from san francisco and the coast and all the way to the bay area. dublin, starting out in the 50s and mostly clear skies and then into the 70s by the early afternoon. check out the 7-day forecast at the bottom of the screen as we

at the border. many were issued several warnings to remove their equipment, and some were cited but one adult is still in custody and booked on one count of resisting arrest. i want to show you a video from last year. we were there back on july 8th after police cleared out an encampment in the same area when they were speaking out on the issue of family separation, and that lasted a week before the police cleared it out. the incident is still an active investigation. we're live in san francisco, pete suratos for "today in the bay." >> thank you. 6:32 right now. happening today, expect added security measures when the santa clara county fair begins following the deadly rampage in

>> yeah, i think what is important to know is that this is just part of the process, and these vigils occur for different reasons for different people, and it's part of what we are doing tonight, and the theme is that we need to be here together. we are hoping people will come out. for some this will be the beginning of the healing process, and for others they just need to be with people, and for some others it's a matter of trying to process what happened this past sunday and figure out where we go from here. i think the thing about it is what we are seeing is that the community is indeed coming together, and people are encouraging one another and lifting one another up and praying for one another and assisting one another. we are getting calls every day about what can i do? how can i contribute? what can i give to the cause, especially to help the families and victims, not to mention the vendors, and there are so many vendors stranded that need help.

making shirts and selling them and donating that, and one of the main areas people can donate is the gilroy foundation that is collecting money to help the families and the victims, and business leaders and restaurants, they are finding some way to give back and be a help to the community. the business community has responded well to this as have so many residents. >> thank you very much, mark. remain strong down there. i know it's a tough time. just to recap, tonight's vigil is open to the public. it starts at 7:00 p.m. downtown gilroy, right off of fifth street and monterey road. it's easy to get to. they will sell the gilroy strong t-shirts for $20 and all the proceeds go to the victims and their families. going to something like that, it helps in the healing for a lot of people and it's a sense of community. >> yeah, people going through the same thing and going through
