impossible to say for sure when the next earthquake will hit, dr. mooney believes that there will probably be few if any aftershocks from this quake.sotthis kind of an earthquake typically has a low number of aftershocks. we expect aftershocks but nowhere near as many as would occur if the quake were closer to the surface. sotwe would expect the next one to be more of a typical earthquake.

(james) after the latest crime on bart.. an attempted robbery involving a thief handing a threatning note to a passenger demanding her phone and wallet... we decided to look into ways to protect yourself and your family from violent crime. (anny) kron4's spencer blake spoke to a self-defense expert in san francisco about what you should... and shouldn't... do if you're ever in a similar situation. (yelling)kids learning martial arts at untied studios of self- defense in san francisco are already learning, among other things, what their best options are if someone ever tries to rob them.kron four told you about the weekend incident when a bart rider got this note from another rider, threatening her life over her
4:18 am
wallet and phone."it sounds serious. it sounds like someone should be careful about their next steps."the step she decided to takewas to fake a seizure, which grabbed people's attention. "actually a pretty wise idea." at that point the alleged note-writer got off the train. sensei j-t collins says he would've done something very similar if he had gotten the noteand the people we talked to at bart stationswere on the right track."i'd probably scream.""loud voices makes everyone else pay attention, maybe get out their phones." "what would you have done? handed 'em my stuff, because i'm chicken."don't feel like a chicken - collins also stand behind that idea, generally.he points out your life isn't worth the contents of your wallet, nor the price of your phone.other options are to ignore the note, or pretend like you didn't understand it. collins' best tactical advice when there are lots of people around, is to head to an exit -- put as much distance and as many objects as possible between you and the potential robber."never ever go with them to somewhere else. never ever leave the area."collins has been teaching these kinds of defenses and tactics for a couple decadesbut you'll only have seconds to make a decision if a dangerous person targets you. "i encourage adults to think about the decision and think about it
4:19 am
for their family as well as themselves, their friends and try to think of the decision; make a decision beforehand of what they would do."perhaps the victim in this case already had her plan in mind, too.bart police, by the way, are still looking for this woman as a potential suspect.

but if it is force to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy north korea .">(james) president trump also made headlines by once again referring to north korean leader kim jong un as "rocket man." (anny) we've been honoring some of the bay area's outstanding teachers.. today - it's sam rivera of leland high school.. he's a south bay science teacher who knows that not all learning has to happen between four walls. catherine heenan has our 'teacher of the week.' leland high school in san jose's almaden valley - with an enrollment of roughly 1800. "how are you all doing? good? are you?"that includes sam rivera's 9th grade biology class....where they'll be doing something a little different today.sam has nothing against laptops and books - but likes the idea of occasionally getting everyone
4:50 am
to get up - and get outside.so today - along with two guests from the children's discovery museum, they're of on a little field trip.(creek sounds)lots of students don't realize that this pretty creek - the los alamitos - is only a 2 minute walk from campus.and as their teacher suspects - these city kids have lots to learn, including what 'downstream' means.teacher "really? the wind is gonna direct the river? we'll see. we have a lot of learning to do here." the learning includes being part of the 'biosite' program today. sam wants them to learn how to monitor the health of the creek water.volunteers take samples...and get to splash around in a different kind of classroom.student "i actually never heard of this trail. i'm normally behind my computer or doing something. (cover some) this is actually really nice. i did one of the experiments to measure the water. i just liked the feel of outside."teacher "pour that in there. there you go. it didn't work. hey - you tried something observed it didn't work. (laughs)sam believes in
4:51 am
making his students observe things first hand before experimenting. and never forgets to add a little humor. student "he had like this child-like but teacher self. he taught us but at the same time he understood how we felt so i thought that was amazing." and he likes to bring the teaching full circle..sam knows that what's being learned here will be shared later -- when his kids eventually mentor fourth graders....like these past biosite students.he wants everyone to know that science lives and breathes outdoors. "because they're gonna get to college and think that all of science is only in a book or only on tv or a documentary. and it's not. it's outside. it's out there. and what you observe out there you can bring into your lab and then study."from taking a closer look at water.....to designing their own experiments...sam rivera's students are a reflection of what he calls "hands-on, minds-on" education.
