organizations. hackers could mess with information sent to the "associated press" and that could lead to the states being called for the wrong candidates. fourth, we are talking about internet disruption. that could make it hard for voters to look up their polling places. they are listed on the voter registration card, but some people use their id instead. and the last possible one that we need to talk about is tinkering with voting machines. they are not easy to hack since voters differ from state to state and voting is not connected a sexist tradition has cost the harvard men's soccer team the rest of the season. north korea the school found the men continually participated in sexually explicit reports where they raided the incoming women freshmen players. they will not play the rest of the season or be allowed to

five. >> in my opinion, he took himself out of our lives, and i can't even think about him in my life. there is anger there. i mean, anyone would have anger for a person who was supposed to do nothing but protect his children. >> now, her anger isn't just limited to her ex-husband. she is suing subway for negligence. she claims three different occasions dating back to 2004. a family in texas, their newborn baby came into the world in a big hurry in the middle of a highway. >> he is out right now. i am trying to figure out where i am at. >> that was the father calling 911 from a busy highway in fort worth. his wife had just given birth in the car while they were racing to the hospital.

why are out-of-state billionaires attacking amendment 1? because amendment 1... stops. their. subsidies. with amendment 1, you don't pay a historic day in chicago- the cubs celebrating their than a century. a huge parade. that got us thinking, what was tampa bay like the last time the cubs won a title? 10news reporter phil buck takes you back in time. >> reporter: tampa 1908. a sleepy town of about 15,000 people. st. pete had less than 10,000. kind of puts it in perspective how much it's changed since the cubs last won the world series. here is a little perspective for you. the last time the cubs won the
population of tampa would fit inside amalie arena. wait. what? that's right. amalie arena seats just over 20,000, and to go even further, the entire population of hillsborough and pinellas counties combined was about 70,000 people. about what it takes to fill raymond james stadium. but hold on. check that. >> one of the things that people don't think about is pinellas county didn't exist in 1908. >> reporter: he expert on tampa bay history. it's not just how much it changed since the cubs' last championship parade. how much tampa bay has changed since our last championship parade. 2004. jeb was the governor. charlie crist still had never lost an election, and no one had even heard of hurricane's charlie, francis, or ivan. it takes the same time to take
the drive has gotten better. back then from tampa to st. pete took around three hours. from memory lane, phil buck, 10news wtsp. >> can you imagine a horse and buggy? give me a break. one other thing to put on how long that cubs drought lasted. the last time they won the world series downtown tampa hosted a veterans convention for confederate veterans of civil war. wow. it was a beautiful, picture perfect day to celebrate a world series win. >> and a lot warmer than historically chicago is at that time. >> 54 is their average high temperature. they were in the upper 50s to low 60s curing the -- during the ceremony today. you were saying earlier at least two million because that's what the blackhawks had. there are some estimates close to five million people. >> oh, my goodness.
>> there is joe maddon right there. ben zobrist was up on the stage, obviously, as well, too. they all drove through the streets before they got up and were able to talk and show off the trophy there. just bittersweet to see joe up there. >> let's move on. >> okay. we got this going for us. sky 10 right now showing a beautiful sunset from the don cesar hotel camera. i wanted to show this because we have a little bit more of onshore wind. our winds have been east- northeast for a week and a half at least. they switched around a little bit today, and that's brought us back into some cooler temperatures for the immediate coast just because the water is cooler. there is a beautiful shot of downtown st. petersburg. this is looking off towards the north and the east. this is on the north side of the pier, if you will, behind the museum. 82 degrees right now, and dew points in the mid-and-upper 60s. so it is a little bit on the muggy side, but that's what's going to change slowly during
that's one little shower that's trying to form here. this has been falling apart. i am not too worried about this. if you are in the fulcrum area, this may hold together for a quick sprinkle. i don't think most of us will see it. more rain is going to be coming from the north. i think that's gonna end up staying on the east coast, especially down through brevard county. temperature-wise look at the difference. see the color shading on the coast? that's the onshore wind with the water at 77 degrees. w 77. same thing in clearwater. we have been between 77 and 79 right on the beach, which is cooler than what we have been. 79 in bradenton now, but 83 in sarasota. it's 82 right now in lakeland. new tampa checking in the low 80s from thonotosassa to temple terrace. there is the wind now. it's not a lot. it is a different direction, of course. tonight and into tomorrow that wind will pick up a little bit. it's gonna get a little bit on the breezy side and i think a
might not want to take the bar boat out in downtown tampa tomorrow unless you are in real good shape. there you go with your forecast. takes you through saturday and into sunday. kind of mixed it all together right there because it's actually gonna be fairly quiet. small rain chance around midnight tonight mainly north of i-4. i mean a small chance. just a sprinkle. and then really less than 10% chance through the weekend. we start sunny. we will see a few extra clouds. it will be slightly tomorrow morning not a huge difference. mid-60s to get your day started. tomorrow afternoon a little bit of a difference. with el about go about 80, 81 degrees. we have been 85, 86, 87. yes, there is a small difference there. more than anything else it will feel so much better as the dew points drop down into the 50s. there is that small craft advisory going up. that's the reason why you probably want to keep the boat in. at least hug the coast because it will be out of the north and northeast. a little bumpy.
in the afternoon. saturday evening it may look a little better. two to three foot seas and choppy on the bay. small craft advisory should come down saturday night. tides on your saturday. high tide around 12:51, around 1:00 in the afternoon. low tide around 7:00 in the evening. look at the dry air. that's what this front's packing more than anything else. we are only gonna get a taste of that. certainly some low dew points up north. for our dew points, watch this change. this is tomorrow morning, into tomorrow afternoon. yeah. that's what i think we will get more than anything out of this. as a result, very small rain chance. going all the way through next week and most of next week will be closer to normal for this time of year, which is 80 to 81 degrees. deputies say a driver left a bar before hitting two people and taking off. i am dion lim, and new at 6:00 tonight we are digging deeper
