4:02 pm
completed. >> rob, no word from police about whether he was targeted or if this was random or fellow artists saying he had been in trouble recently with other individuals. >> yes. police say they don't know what precipitated the argument. it appears though in talking to some of the artists there, the give upman did target the artist shot -- gunman did target the artist shot. it was not necessarily a random shooting but the facts about what happened needs to be determined. >> and in broad bailout at that. >> right. >> all right. rob flu shot the newsroom. thank you. a video fight between a coach and high school football player has sparked a new conversation about abuse in athletics. >> yes. the video obtained by ktvu shows a coach shoving a football player during a road trip. it is hard to hear what the argument is about but by the end of the video it is very clear that people are saying that is enough.
4:03 pm
[audio difficulties -- interrupted or lost audio. please stand by] there are folks on the bus saying that is enough right there. this happened on september 19th as the team was headed home from an away game. late in the afternoon the video was given to ktvu. since then the coach has been identified as 39-year-old decarr lows anderson. the school -- decarr lows anderson. the district says he has been placed on administrative leave while the school investigates. >> decarlos anderson was such a
4:04 pm
good coach. even when we weren't doing that great he made us feel oo like we were doing good. >> anderson previously worked for alameda county as a youth development case manager, youth and family counselor and even a project manager for gang intervention and prevention. and erika carlson of erika carlson sports in carlton is a coach and she has more on coaches and the abuse of power. >> the video makes me a little sad to see players being treated that way. i don't think it is acceptable for a coach to ever put his hands on kids. i tonight though what led up to that moment but it is tough to watch. unfortunately we are seeing too much of that these days. >> let me ask you this in general term, not specifically about this case. a coach's abuse of power can do
4:05 pm
what to a student athlete? >> it can be psychologically really difficult for a kid. a coach is in an authoritative position, a position of power. it can be misused. kids are very motivated to perform, to play well, to earn a starting position and try to get in the next level of their sport. that create as lot of power issues. >> i played high school football for four years. i ran track for four years. i never had a coach the physically touch me but i have had coaches scream in my face, nose to nose, telling me to pick it up, telling me i was terrible, not doing my assignment. never for once did i think this guy is being a bully. it made me work harder. do you think the verbal technique is effective these days? >> it is an interesting question because, first of
4:06 pm
all, it depends on who you are and a little about your background, how you interpret that. you know, in these days one of the advantages that we have as athletes and as coaches is a lot more education about alternatives. so, as we were growing up there was a lot of that going on. and quite honestly coaches didn't know a lot about alternative, other ways to get to kids, to create more positive ways for motivation. a lot of us grew up with those old school coaches. there are still a few of them out there today. but certainly kids and parents alike have different expectations that there is a better way to get to a can i had. >> the more the coach says hey, great job, even though maybe i didn't do a good job, is it better to say that and kind of fib to give the positive reenforcement in hoping he or she will play better? >> absolutely not. >> no?
4:07 pm
>> absolutely not. what we know from research -- there is a lot of research that has bullpen done on this -- positive -- that has been done on this -- positive reenforcement can be effective in limited quantities. if coaches are constantly giving out positive reenforcement, it becomes quite meaningless to athletes. >> all right. thank you very much mental skills coach erika carlson right here in the bay area. i appreciate you taking the time, erika. >> all right. thank you. >> so, i also asked about social media and the role it plays today compared to 20 years ago when i was playing sports. she said it definitely create as lot more transparency. it has the coaches a little bit more on edge. they know they are being watched. it doesn't mean that they can get away with it anymore. >> okay. well, this video, speaking of social media, sparked a lot of conversation on our pages. take a look at some of these

4:17 pm
you can set this up and it will repeat the signal from the router and give you the range you are missing. >> okay. we check location. what about interfering signals like your neighbors? >> well, first, if your neighbors are jumping on your network, that will slow you down. you want to make sure you have a password connected on your network. when you are in those settings you can change your network. in my house it is the fbi surveillance plan. put a cool password on it. you don't have to remember it. make it long and complicated. write it on your router sticker so your friends and family can have it. >> and what about the bluetooth or other devices? >> yes. we have a baby monitor. we have a 3-year-old. we like to see her sleep because we think it is cute. if you have it in on the back bedroom, we don't get any signal at all so you want a dual band router.
4:18 pm
get the 5 gigahertz. it will give you a lot more range and it is not isocratted as a 3. >> what if all these -- and it is not as crowded as a 3. >> and what if you have done all those things and you are still having issues? >> well, if you are renting your router, ask your cable company for an upgrade. chances are they have one. or you can download firmware. when they get shipped out to the stores, the firmware is about a year old. >> updates? >> yes. just like your computer. >> ryan with nerds on call. thank you, ryan. >> and rosemary, i bet the wifi signal at this guy's place is unbelievable. >> yes, and the fbi, well, no one will tamper with that. >> yes! and you can't tamper with the weather today. i thought it was perfect today. a nice chill in the air,
