limit of their local roads caused liability and safety concerns and the owner said they tried to find solutions but couldn't find a way to change the parking or those really narrow roads. the historic names of several yosemite national parkland marks are being restored after a settlement of a long lawsuit over naming rights. the landmarks had to be renamed back in 2015 after the park service awarded its concession contract to a new operator. and the old operator sued saying it owned the names. but a $12 million settlement reached yesterday would allow yosemite to restore the historic names. so the awani hotel will be the awani again after being called the majestic hotel. they'll go back to their original names. this morning, on today's health check, sleep trackers are really
7:54 am
popular now. people are using wrist sensors and smartphone apps to see how much sleep you're getting, but the sleep apps can be tricker especially if you focus too much on getting the perfect night sleep like i do. beth galvin of fox's medical team is here. beth, it's good to see you. for those who get up early, we don't always get a good night sleep. what kinds of things do these sleep trackers really measure? >> they measure different things, but it varies. it tracks movement during why i sleep to see if you toss or turn or if you're one of those still deeper sleepers and it can look at things like your heart rate, your breathing, the room temperature, the light in the room. so they can tell you a lot of things generally overall and how you're doing when it comes to sleep. >> what can these sleep trackers really tell us?
7:55 am
>> so i think that they can tell us how we're doing overall in our sleep habits. are we getting enough sleep? are we in a good sleep routine? do we need to cut back on alcohol or step up our exercise? those kinds of things to improve the quality of our sleep, and i think they're helpful for people who are already probably, you know, maybe like you dave, getting a good night sleep, but you like to do better. they like to get more. it can give you a bigger picture, one of these sleep trackers. >> i know it's really important. the experts warn sleep trackers may make sleep problems worse for some people, how? >> that's because, i think some people we get competitive and we start fix ating on the numbers and the sleep draft and think we're having sleep issues when we're not. it can back fire on you and keep you up because you're anxious about it. the best thing for
7:56 am
figuring that out, how do you feel when you wake up in the morning and how do you feel during the evening time. if you're slacking in the energy department, those are signs you have a bigger issue. you're not getting good quality sleep and you probably don't need an app or a sensor to tell you that. dave. >> you know for yourself. good advice. good information. beth galvin, of fox medical team. always good to hear from you. >> thank you. >> have a good day. time now 7:56. still ahead, as temperatures keep rising across the bay area, so does that risk of fires. coming up, there's power shut offs. we'll tell you what they're doing to make sure water service is not affected. plus we're going to tell you what caused a data center to shutdown at san francisco state university. it affected students and the

8:17 am
people in collisions is speed. we want to get those speeders off the road or get people to realize hey, the 20 extra miles you're going over the speed limit is not worth it. >> take a look at this photo. it's a dummy in the passenger seat of a car. the chp pulled somebody over last week right here on highway 4 if are this and the driver admitted to the officer they had been getting away with that dummy in the passenger seat in the carpool lane for two years and the person was cited. again, you heard the officer talking about speeding and they want to crackdown on speeders as well. highway 4 has an issue with people going above 100 miles an hour from brentwood down to concord. they're not sure why that happens. it happens once the morning and evening commute clears out. they're going to be looking for speeders, and carpool cheaters. they say think about the decisions you make behind the wheel. it does affect everyone on the road, not just
