4:20 pm
along among lawmakers for a bipartisan gun bill have gone nowhere. more on the all this, we are joined by both them and in studio political analyst at san francisco state university. always good for you to come in. why do you think we are seeing the precedent shift his stance on gun control and in particular, stronger background checks? >> i think the first is there is an election looming not too far off in the distance and he is mindful about that. the initial -- of this which is something he has done on other occasions including the las vegas shootings, we had someone who allegedly -- that was probably if the person who was -- >> we need to do something more . >> we have the bump stock band . >> and nothing else. why wasn't anybody paying attention that the fact that
4:21 pm
this guy was loading all these guns at the hotel room? >> do you think the president was ever serious or is still serious, let me put it that way. is he still serious about tightening background checks for gun sales in this country? >> that is a good question but before he was president, donald trump was a man about town in new york. he actually had a position that was different than the one he has right now. don't actually see, there has been enough time now since el paso, what happened in ohio in gilroy for -- to have talked to the president about what kind of support he's not going to get from the election. his appetite for that in the center, i doubt that the blessed is the president is behind it and even then i'm not sure he would allow that to happen so here's the other thing, -- when we
4:22 pm
talk about mitch mcconnell, there has been a lot of finger- pointing back and forth. the president says congress needs to take action and congresses, the president has got to push things forward. >> if he really wants tougher background checks on gun control but brothers the truth lie? is it somewhere in the middle? >> here's the reality. the reality is that if donald trump does not grow his base of voters somewhere in the lie hurt high 30s or low 40s, he will lose the election. no question about that and the only way he can do that at this point because he is very much beloved by republicans is the blessed get democrats to vote. >> right now, gun control and background checks, numbers in the 80s and low 90s -- >> and the polls also show -- mac and the polling also shows many republicans are becoming -- wanting the same thing . >> universal background checks so why do you think the
4:23 pm
president believes it is a risky strategy to push forward on gun control? >> i think you believe the other polls about his own personal approval with the public -- republican party thinking -- overall so i think he is betting on that but the point i'm trying to make is if he's going to win the reelection he has to get more than 50% of the vote and is not going to do that if he doesn't force something that most people in this country have asked for which is background checks in a whole range of things we have to do that are common sense measures -- don't do -- >> do we ever see gun control legislation like this go around? >> it is about as close as we are going to get at this point and maybe we won't get meaningful gun control but will get a change in the election. then we will see if the democratic candidates on the other side of the issue will
4:24 pm
control the senate perhaps next time around and we will push something through . >> that would change the dynamic of all of it. we appreciate your insight, joe thurman, political analyst and professor at san francisco state pick the search continues for two missing voters -- boaters for off the coast of florida picked the piece of evidence keeping hope alive pick be sure to tune in tonight for the residents at 8:00 followed by an all-new episode of first responders live coming up in 9:00 and we hope you stick around for the 10:00 and 11:00 news all right here on ktvu. we are here to discuss jessie's online time. and out of respect, we will let you make the first offer. thirty minutes. thirty minutes? objection! overruled. one hour. sweeten the deal by doing the dishes and i'll consider it. i wouldn't do it. i hate the dishes. one hour with the tablet, you walk the dog and do the dishes. if you insist. congratulations. only xfinity xfi lets you take control of your family's online time. that's simple, easy, awesome. xfinity xfi gives you the speed,

for a lot of people, wisdom teeth are an annoyance that eventually need to be removed but a bay area oral surgeon sees something more. a valuable reservoir of stem cells. dr. scott joins us live. scott, you say it is important not to discard wisdom tooth? >> that is correct. wisdom teeth have a valuable source of stem tell cells. you can discard them as medical ways and some patients prefer to take them with them but we have another option where we could actually of the teeth saved cryogenically and the stem cells harvested for future use for their patients, for the
4:32 pm
patient in the future . >> so doctor, what might these stem cells be used for one day? >> i think the field is wide open. we are just kind of on the very cusp of what has become. stem cell third therapies will be useful for autoimmune processes to perhaps cancer therapies to a multitude of things. we are again just starting to see and unlock the stem cell possibilities for people and as we move forward into the future, we are going to see many things that are going be fantastic for our own health . >> a lot of people have their wisdom teeth pulled at a young age. explain why it is important to preserve stem cells especially in young patients? >> -- >> it seems as though we may have lost our connection. with dr. scott frost. we were discussing the
4:33 pm
importance of preserving send stem cells found in wisdom to you. perhaps we can continue the conversation later on in the newscast. will move along here, planned parenthood is putting its money where its mouth is. they are pulling out of federal family planning programs. as lauren green reports, the organization says they would rather lose the funding then abide by a new trump administration rule prohibiting participants from referring patients for abortions. >> reporter: in a major decision, planned parenthood announced it is abandoning $6 million in federal funding to avoid a new trump administration rule. the roll bars federally funded clinics from referring people to abortion providers. the 2019 role put forth by that trumpet ministration had been locked up in the court system but it just came forth essentially saying they are no longer allowing planned parenthood to direct directly refer pregnant patients for abortion . >> planned parenthood says the trump administration force them out of the funding.

4:39 pm
facebook snow clear history feature is being rolled out in 3 countries. users in ireland, south korea and spain will be able to use the new tool that aims to give users more control over there data privacy. users in those countries will see a new section called off of facebook activity when users click it they will see apps and websites tracking activity and send the reports back to facebook for ad targeting purposes. tapping the clear history but will erase the data from a facebook account. joining us to talk more about this is our check expert, brian eldridge. brian, always good to talk with you. this sounds a little scary.
4:40 pm
i'm going to see all of the data that has been passed along from apps and websites to facebook, my user history, what exactly am i going to see when i use this new feature? >> so when it is available to us in the u.s., hopefully later on this year, essentially you will see a list of apps and websites that have reported back to faceok yo activity while on the web. to start from the beginning, every website you go to, everywhere on the planet, is reporting information back to facebook if they have something called a facebook pixel installed on the website which almost all of them do. facebook knows inordinate amount of information about you. when you look at the feature you will see a list of things and you can turn them off and say i don't want to be associated with this tall content. whatever the reason is, you can turn them off and also block them from tracking you in the future which is kind of nice . >> okay, i was going to say
4:41 pm
this is not just deleting data from the past come you can also say you don't want these companies to do this in the future. can you put out a blanket statement that says i don't want to be tracked at all by any website? >> wouldn't that be nice? unfortunately, you cannot. they may come out with something in the future that allows you to do that but for now you have to pick and choose and interestingly they were a few research studies earlier this year that asked people how do you think of a privacy setting on statement and most of those people had no idea how to either navigate to the privacy settings, how to use them or what they were for. so facebook is essentially rolling this out and it is going to hurt their -- platform if people adopted in droves. most people will not know what is there. essentially they are just getting a pr win by coming up with this interesting feature
4:42 pm
but if facebook is going to be straight and honest with users and say, we are going to stop using you as a product, they would make an opt out or an opt in feature rather than an opt out feature so that would be that privacy was default . >> if you going click and use this clear history feature saying my data is taken care of, the data is not actually being deleted by facebook, is a? it? >> no, they are just disassociating it from your account and it can take up to 48 hours for that to happen. during that time, facebook will continue to use the data for whatever they want. after that 48 hours, they will still use it in their ad products and in the sense of like targeting females between 18 and 49 and targeting people of a certain demographic, things that you do with your on facebook rather than what you are on off facebook . >> and they hang onto the data in case they needed down the road. is there a downside, brian, to clear my data and disassociating
4:43 pm
my history with my facebook account? >> well, on the consumer side there is not really much of a downside. if you are a big fan of making sure the ads are more relevant to you so you have been on amazon and the last few weeks, looked at certain things and all the sudden you see that in your facebook feed and you kind of like those reminders and that personalized experience then don't do anything but if you think that is creepy, i was just talking about my friend about that weird pillow and all of a sudden it is showing up in my newsfeed. something is where. if that bothers you, turn it off . >> i say that all the time . >> and they can't crack that code. it doesn't mean it will be perfect. google still does this stuff. google just has a much larger, broader platform so people can still use the data from google rather than their own to do the exact same stuff . >> so there is always the potential work around. why the slow rollout? is this new feature only being rolled out now in 3 countries, why is facebook sort of doing this at such a slow pace?
4:44 pm
>> the department of engineering at the company posted a release saying that it is taking so long because it is a new product they have never had to do before and no other website in the world is doing it so they had no framework to work with. they had to build it from the ground up but ice i kind of suspect them doing a slower rollout so they can mitigate the amount of folks that take advantage of it. if you only rollout at 12%, they are not hurting their bank account in the u.s. and europe where their dominant . >> not necessarily a feature they want a whole lot of users to actually use and again, brian, how long do you think before users in the u.s. will be able to use the feature? >> there is no 100% guarantee that it will end up happening anytime this year but that would move i guess because i think they are going to wait for a nice slow new cycle probably sometime around christmas time and roll it out
4:45 pm
to the rest of us and they will use it as we will but i think it will change because it is it only in 3 countries i would consider this a beta test. there may be a lot of changes and facebook is known for hiding these kinds of features deep into the privacy menu so you may have trouble finding it once it comes out . >> brian eldridge from nerds on call. appreciate talking to you, thank you. >> you're welcome. all right, let's take a look outside as we take a look at the beautiful golden gate bridge and blue skies and clouds out there, rosemary? >> we have another beautiful day around the bay area. temperatures warming a little bit over yesterday and this is a trend we will see moving forward over the next couple of days. perhaps some of the warmest weather of the week. here's a look over the bay as we look at san francisco through the clouds there on the backside. we see a mostly cloudy sky along the coastline. we have a trough and low pressure that continue to maintain control of our weather
