salvador's magnet school. they are using art to better understand how earthquakes happen. pictures of the 1906 quake are superimposed over present day shots of san francisco. the idea here is to promote questions, discussion and reflection. it's all part of salvador arts integration program a method they use to teach all their subjects. >> they take arts based skills and strategies and that's the way they teach science and social studies. so not only are kids learning the content, but they also gain artistic fluency at the same time. >> reporter: and it's working. students are more alert, engaged, and eager to learn and communicate. >> helps me to focus when things don't really interest me. so i like art a lot so this helps me focus better. >> so you believe that this could be downtown somewhere? >> reporter: the teacher is in her fourth year at salvadore. she says the transformation from fall to spring is incredible.

kind of explain exactly what they learned. >> neat. that would be fun. >> and they're polite. well mannered. it trickles down. it's pretty cool. >> it is cool. well, what is cool about your school? email your nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org. we may come and feature your school on the show. you can get a new iphone 6 before it goes on sale. verizon offering a free iphone 6 to customers who turn in their current iphone and sign a new two-year contract. t-mobile and sprint are also advertising trade-in deals. it's unusual to see such early discounts on apple products. iphone 6 will be officially released to the public next week. there it is again! >> seriously! >> i can't imagine the chaos in the news studio. all new at 5:30, a news team is greeted by an unexpected guest during her morning broadcast. and i'm dennis o'donnell. coming up, intense baseball pennant race?

gets this hot because all kinds of stuff happens. you start seeing the air that you can breathe and that's not a good thing. so we have a "spare the air" day today. good morning, everyone. heading out, plan on hot weather inland. right now it is mild but it is foggy along the coast. upper 50s in half moon bay. currently 59 degrees in san francisco. low 60s across the santa clara valley. to the north of the golden gate bridge, 50 apiece. san rafael and novato. it is currently 60 degrees to the east in concord where today's high 96 degrees. okay, these numbers east of the bay averaging at least a good 10 degrees above normal. we should be in the low 80s in san jose. but instead, 91 degrees. low 80s in san francisco when typically we should be at 70. it will be 72 in pacifica. check this out. 103 degrees. you're sailing, where? well, that's gilroy to the south. and to the east, brentwood tracy oakley also discovery bay. we hang on to this weather pattern at least all the way through the weekend. elizabeth, what do you suggest today, bikes or transit or
what? oh, for commuters, i thought you meant for me. no biking for me. i'll be sitting down once this newscast is over. all right. let's go outside. so, yeah, roberta mention the "spare the air." so you are encouraged to use mass transit. avoid the roads. if you do have to hit the roads, you will start to see more company out there especially on the nimitz freeway. there is report of an accident now northbound 880 at 7th. it sounds like it's already off to the right-hand shoulder and the delay is minimal. 16 minutes now between 238 and the maze. roberta mentioned some of that coastal fog. you can really see it across our golden gate bridge cam. so visibility a little difficult for drivers coming out of sausalito. they did pick up the overnight roadwork near the toll plaza a while ago so drive time is clear from san rafael. that is "kcbs traffic." frank and michelle, back to you guys,. >> all right. thank you, elizabeth. 5:34 now. some developing news. football star ray rice is not the only one under scrutiny in connection with his domestic violence case now. kpix 5's anne makovec live in the newsroom to explain why the
nfl commissioner and some others are now feeling a little heat. anne. >> reporter: the fallout from the case has now spread to the 49ers. the 49ers have susexpended knbr radio broadcaster ted robinson, suspended for comments he made. cbs sports says monday during a segment on knbr robinson said, how does she marry him after that? how does she go in front of goodell? that's pathetic to me. in a statement the 49ers called his comments offensive and said our organization stands strongly against domestic violence and will not tolerate comments such as these. in the meantime the nfl commissioner is digging in his heels sticking by his statement that that videotape was just too difficult to obtain. reporter: according to the "associated press," a law enforcement official sent this video of former ravens star ray rice knocking out his then fiancee to the nfl five months ago. the ap claims it even heard a voicemail recording acknowledging receipt. earlier this week, the nfl suspended rice indefinitely following the release of the
tmz sports video showing the february incident at an atlantic city casino. in a memo to the league's owners and team presidents last night, nfl commissioner roger goodell maintained the league did not see the video until monday but had requested it on multiple occasions. >> as the company that got the videotape can tell, it was gettable. and he didn't get it. >> reporter: as the ravens prepare to play this evening, cbs sports anchor james brown says the rice controversy shouldn't overshadow the game. >> it's part of life. you deal with it. put it in perspective and then let's get to the game. >> reporter: jets quarterback michael vick, who served almost two years in prison on dogfighting charges, thinks rice deserves a second chance. >> because somebody made a mistake, you just can't abandon them. >> reporter: and former fbi director robert mueller is now going to lead an independent investigation into the nfl's handling of the video reporting. live in the newsroom, anne makovec, kpix 5. >> thank you, anne. rice's former team the
baltimore ravens will play tonight in a game broadcast here on cbs against pittsburg. kickoff set for 5:25. the mountain lion officials believe attacked a child last weekend has been tracked and killed. kiet do reports from cupertino near where the boy was attacked sunday. >> reporter: crews had been working long hot days in the sun and came up empty-handed and then yesterday, they had paydirt. reporter: these dogs picked up the scent of a mountain lion trackers had been looking for after it attacked a little boy three days ago. the pack took off after the cat after the search crew came across these fresh paw prints wednesday morning. an hour and a half later, the mountain lion was trapped in a tree about 65 feet high. >> it would not have been possible to tranquilize it. it would have died in the fall at that height. so it displayed some extremely aggressive behavior. it crouched down and acted like it was going to jump at the
ward deny. >> reporter: the cat was shot and killed high in the tree. the remains were sent to sacramento for rabies testing. and dna testing will prove whether or not this was the same 65-pound male cat that left puncture wounds and scratches on the boy's head and neck. >> cats simply do not attack people with any regularity. these are so uncommon, and even beyond that, the fact that it attacked a person in a group of people, that's practically unheard of. >> reporter: two families were hiking on this marked trail on sunday when the mountain lion attacked the boy. the 6-year-old was just 10 feet ahead of the group when the cat jumped out from a hidden spot. the california department of fish and wildlife says it had no choice but to kill the animal. >> especially disconcerting realizing how close this is to a winery and these are marked walking trails where people are out all the time and this was a cat that was not going to change its behavior. it was definitely an ongoing public safety threat. >> reporter: so the cougar that was killed yesterday was a 65-
pound juvenile male. relatively small animal, but still powerful enough to be a danger to humans. michelle? >> well, kiet, are the trails still closed? >> reporter: yes, they are. they still have the red warning signs up. they have the warning tape blocking off the entrance to the trail. presumably they're going to keep them closed until they absolutely confirm that this was the same mountain lion that attacked that child on sunday. we're live just near cupertino, kiet do, kpix 5. starbucks might soon give barista the right to bear ink. they are reconsidering its no tattoo policy. starbucks coasted the question, how do you suggest we strike the right balance between self- expression and professionalism on a facebook page for employees? an online petition asking starbucks to change its tattoo policy has 21,000 signatures. after dutifully paying down outstanding balances, consumers are borrowing again. in july credit card debt was up 7.4% from june, the second
largest monthly increase since early 2008. now, before you fall into some bad habits, cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger has some tips to help you better manage plastic. you're not the one money type who says only cash, right? we have to use credit cards too a little bit, right? >> reporter: yeah. i think. unless you have enough money to make not just your day-to-day purchases but to get a big one like a car or a house, you probably are going to need credit. though trick with credit card is -- the trick with credit cards is you have to make the payments on time no exceptions and you cannot run up big balances because credit card debt is likely the most expensive debt you will ever carry. industry average is 15% right now. >> jill, lots of people they prefer debit cards so what's your opinion of debit versus credit? >> the kids love the debit cards. that pulls your funds directly from the bank account. and you know what, it's true, debit cards help you keep track of your money. unfortunately, they don't help
you establish a credit history. and they may expose account owners to bigger headaches if there's some sort of data breach like the one we just had at home depot. if you're starting out and nervous about the credit card idea, maybe consider a secured credit card that requires to you make a deposit with a bake before you get the card. sort of -- with the bank before you get the card. and it actually is cool is because most banks report your activity on secured cards to the credit bureaus so it helps build your score. >> okay what else should we do to better manage the cards. >> reporter: let's leverage technology, okay? sign up for auto pay so you never miss a payment or get hit with a finance charge. now, maybe your cash flow is erratic or you're nervous about the credit card company having a blank check to your account. if that's the case, just establish a monthly amount of cash, just automatically do it from your bank account. maybe 50 bucks. send it to the card company so you can make at least a minimum payment. that will help avoid some of
the fees. another idea, set your own due date. you want to align your payments with your payday. i got to give a big shoutout to the ftc. they have a really good website, consumer.ftc.gov. great information and security tips if you think you have been compromised. >> credit card 101 from jill schlesinger on this thursday morning. thank you, jill. have a great day. >> reporter: okay, you, too. 5:42 right now. drivers overcharged by the dmv. after the break, who paid too much and what some claim is a simple fix that's not being done. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

the metering lights. this is kind of on the later side. if you commute the bay bridge every morning, you probably know at 5:45 on the nose that's often when they switch on the lights and we start to see the delays filling in, in the fastrak lanes quickly after that. look, right now the middle lanes are still getting by okay. it's just these outer lanes, the cash ones that are pushing back to the overcrossings. they now extend beyond the parking lot but again fastrak users are still okay at 5:49 this morning. let's get a check out the door on your forecast figure out what we all have to wear today. here's roberta with that. it is going to be a scorcher inland. but just a sneak peek right now out towards the golden gate bridge again. we have fog lining the coast and into the bay but otherwise, that's going to wipe away very quickly today. number-wise, 52 in santa rosa to 62 degrees at this time in oakland. here's what you need to know on this 11th day of the month. we have patchy fog along the coast today for the opening hours of this day. that's about it. but it's going to move out very quickly. scorching temperatures inland. it's going to be warm across the bay.
it's a "spare the air" day everywhere. here's the scene satellite- radar, this is the bank of patchy fog lining the coast. again, it will dissipate very rapidly as that area of high pressure continues to traverse in easterly direction. it's expanding and strengthening, as well. we'll see cooler temperatures next week. until then, triple digits from redding through the state capital all the way into fresno. ukiah 100 degrees. 82 on the south shore. 89 in half dome. and 74 degrees in monterey bay. sun-up officially at 6:48. by the time it sets tonight at 7:24, 103 degrees. that will be in brentwood, tracy, oakley, discovery bay and also to the south in gilroy. mid-80s in redwood city. 82 in san francisco when the average high this time of the year is 70. we will see a string of 70s along the coast from pacifica back through the avenues into sunset district, as well. okay, here's how we're playing
this out. 100 degrees continues again on friday. so more than likely we'll have yet another "spare the air" day. over the weekend, gradual temperatures trend downward but for the most part, we are seeing unseasonably warm weather. it's baseball today. yup. 2.5 up on the dreadful dodgers. 82 degrees. dodgers come to town tomorrow night. >> oh, boy. >> yeah. peavey on the mound for the good guys. should be a good game. >> thanks, roberta. >> watch.
