7:14 am
pennsylvania. pennsylvania is at the forefront of this. uber is releasing these cars in downtown pittsburgh. there hopefully will be about a hundred at the end of this month and people can request can them. they still are going to have drivers, professionally trained engineers, but these will be automated self-driving cars. things change every single l day on the streets. there's potholes, road hazards, how do they take that into account. >> these are special suvs. they're equipped with sensors, lasers that are detecting what's around them. they actually have very detailed specialized maps that not only track as you said, traffic lights and fire hydrants, but they're tracking potholes, they're tracking trees, stray animals. these are systems that are getting updated every minute of every day. they're constantly evolving. i talked to bill anderson at the beginning of the show and he said there's no way knowhow he's going to get in the car that's self driving.
7:15 am
how are they enticing people to do this. >> i'm excited about it. humanerror is still a major cause of accidents. when you think about it if you have a car that's automated with the robotic technology that's able to update the detailed maps, the potential for more safety and efficiency is there. i think people are excited about the technology and the technology. it could be a safer alternative to human drivers. we have seen other competitors roling out self-driving. there have been some accidents. >> there has. google l has been testing this technology for a little while. their cars are actually limited to 25 miles per hour and that's a point of contention that we're seeing in the news rate now. uber is not saying they have a speed limit on their cars. tesla has had a major accident. they have been testing the cars since may. they've not had any accidents yet, but that's not to athey
7:16 am
won't. they're going to make it free to get people to do it. it's going to be free right now and later on we'll see if they pick it up and the technology getsing going. one group of people that cannot be happy about this at all is the uber drivers or the regular taxi cab drivers. we're looking at a jettison's kind of situation. uber is very bold to come out with this first. they're the first ones to make this available to the public. we'll see what happens and sure, uber drivers, taxi drivers are most likely not excite bad this idea, but for passengers it takes away not only the humanerror for accidents, but there have been uber drivers that have attacked a their passengers. >> michigan. it removes that element. so there is a safety issue as well. i got one more thing. hackers. >> yes. they could get into the technology and all of a united states sen i was driving to grandma's house and wind he over there to mr. badville.
7:17 am
>> h is what i'm especially interested in. there have been good old cars that have been hacked. last year there was a jeep hacked people doing an experiment. they cut an transmission buy of that by phi issue within the car chrysler actually recalled 1.4 million of these jeeps. cars have been hacked before. the problem with self-driving cars is they have so am other points of vulnerable. there can let each other know when there's an accident. hackers may take advantage of that. lots to be discovered. but it's all happening right here. > thank you. > we areally appreciate it. > bill, over to you. we have a jettison's, we have a mr. badville. is that what you said? >> mr. badville's house. >> yes. > scott, we're getting a little relief today, yes. >> the heat wave, it's officially over. but we're still talking about a

thanks sean bell. my son has meningitis b. but how did we end up here? his mom thought he had the flu and that he was covered by the meningococcal meningitis vaccine he had received. until 2014 there were no vaccines for meningitis b in the u.s. now there are.

7:37 am
consistent with some of the things he said as a candidate, i would be very frightened. gillian turner: he's been talking about the option of using a nuclear weapon against our western european allies. max boot: this is not somebody frightened. charles krauthammer: you have to ask yourself, do i want a person of that temperament controlling the nuclear codes? and as of now, i'd have to say no. [bill o'reilly sighs] and as of now, i'd have to say no. wow, she's sure making a splash in that designer dress!

and with a thicker, more fabulous formula, she's not splashing. you can wear anything and pour bleach. and her whiter whites, just dazzling. clorox splash-less bleach. also try crystals and packs. > and trending now, in arkansas a school's message to both parents and students, karen, it's gone vie l recall. because they're telling the grownups that they need to be more responsible as well as their kids. scott explains. here's the scenario, the catholic high school for boys in little rock posted this photo on facebook and school officials are urging parents to not bring in their child's lunch, books or homework if if they left it at em who. they want the students to deal with the sequences and the sign has created a debate on just how
7:39 am
harsh is too harsh and should school officials give the kids a break. we posted this story on our fox 29 facebook page and so am of you commented. christie wrote i don't care what grade children are in it's not their job to do anyone to do their as parents. if i or my husband wish to bring something in my child we can do that. that choice is totally okay and shouldn't be judged. there you go, christie. it's high school, stop enabling your child. they really will be okay. and also another person writes, amanda here, i agree with this except for forgotten lunches they have mow right to tell my child he or she cannot eat. i would absolutely pull my daughter from l school that day if they didn't allow me to bring the living that she forgot. school officials take a deep breath, relax. you forgot lunch. you can't bring your child's lunch in? i think there are two
7:40 am
things apply, parents have become so helicoptered, the parents are too involved. that could be one of the problems there. i can understand that. i hate when schools push people away. i think parents should have as much an open door where the community can be involved. i like when it's all be one community. they're trying to teach them a lesson or sort of responsibility. what's the lesson as you become an adult? if i forget my lunch, don't come to workday? >> relax. no one is going to do it. you forget your homework your mommy is not going to bring that. that's your fault. if i have dietary needs or restrictions, or maybe some medicines in that lunch kit. you never know. i'm driving mommy's car today. mine is in the shop. this may be personal. the zika virus is a major medical concern right now. people are taking precautions to avoid being infected. we're warning you not to go to parts of miami.
7:41 am
why are people voluntarily saying i want to get it. i'll do it. why scientists are asking volunteers to help battle psych a. who do you think drinks more, married couples or people who are single. when we come back we'll show you how being in a relationship will effect when you ask for that next round of beers. this should be interesting. the answers is parents. the answer is parents.
7:42 am
7:44 am
> in your health this morning, a job posting that may be a little bit tough to fill. scientists are looking for people willing to be infected with the zika virus. they're launching a study this winter when mosquitoes aren't biting to speed up development of a vaccine. researchers would inject paid volunteers with different amounts of zika. they would then study that information when they're ready to a test vaccine. a potential vaccine for general use isn't expected any time soon. you may know a little something about this. people who are married or live together actually drink less than single people. that's what researchers say. they found those who are married drank less alcohol and drank less often than those who were single l or divorced. i think because you're out there trying to meet people and out there socializing.
7:45 am
scientists haven't tried to figure out why the kegs exists. this appears in the journal of psychology. if you break it down, single people are out in the club scene more. it makes more sense that you're out there. unless you're in a bad depressed marriage and then you're coming home dripping all the tile time. unless you have drinker. a well deserved drink of wine is the soak receipt to a happy family. > they're watching their own shows. > 7:45 is the time right now of. a beautiful picture right there of the ben franklin bridge, scott williams. beautiful this morning. temperatures not that bad, either, also waking up to some 50s believe it or not in the pocono mountains. as we talk about the numbers on a scale of one to ten i'm going to give it an 8. high temperatures will top out near 80 and the humidity will start to creep back up during the day. ultimate doppler, it is dry.
7:46 am
we do have showers and thunderstorms for tomorrow tomorrow. temperatures across the region, look at those upper 50s in the pocono mountains this morning. mid 60s north and west. 74 philadelphia, 70 will ming and and atlantic city. temperatures in wildwood, the boardwalk already up to 77-degrees. hour by hour, a warm morning for your sat errands. 80-degrees at 1:00 a.m. a steamy afternoon by 4:00 once again, highs right around 90. look off to the west there is a cold front that's moving through the great lakes. that will bring us the scattered showers and thunderstorms as we go hour by hour into your sunday. so today is dry, but look at the clock. by tomorrow morning the clouds start to role in and especially by tomorrow afternoon and evening right around dinnertime we're looking at the front that will bring a round of showers and storms. some of those storms could be a
7:47 am
little l ambiguous time down the shore today we're looking at low 80s, storms once again by tomorrow afternoon and evening. temperatures top out around 84 on sunday. as we move toward the poconos, the sat, 84-degrees and then sunday stormy temperatures top out in the low 80s. the weather authority seven day forecast showing you you a big change in temperatures as we go from upper 80s on sunday to look at the refreshing air, monday, tuesday, high temperatures philadelphia in the low 80s on. but we're looking at high temperatures in the suburbs, north and west in the 70s early next week. so it is going to be very refreshing, get outdoors, especially early next week and enjoy. guys, back over to you. > it looks like cat's me oh there, scott. it sounds like purfect. > the pennsylvania spca is hosting a cat adoption event this weekend. we want to talk a little bit more about it.

7:49 am
everybody wants to adopt a kent, but great cats like pepper, those are the once you have the most need to adopt out. >> definitely. a lot of times senior animals have a lot of things that younger cats don't. pepper is not going to have the destructive face. he's actually lived in his whole life until recently. his owners moved and for whatever reason his owners didn't take him with them. that happens a lot during the summer, do you feel like you get a lot more annual. >> so many other shelters see that throughout the summer months. people go on vacation and instead of boarding their animals they take them to the shelter. we hope people are looking for animals to give loving homes to, not just for our shelter, but for any of the shelters in the if you're looking for pets now would be a great time to get out there. it's a good opportunity to do that, to kind of hammer home that message that as much as a
7:50 am
doing or pet seems cute at the moment, recognize that you're making a life-time commitment we're for people who are doing to have animals forever. > forever home. > julian, thank you. pepper thank you so much. > we have so am people that absolutely love their pets. this is the information on the fur. free cat adoption. our favorite price. it is free. a the look of you have been sending in your cat pictures on this catheter day. we have so am people that love them. this one is feeble bee. that's scott's cat buster just laid back. that is a hysterical shot. look the at this giant yawn there. lexington woke up just for fox 29 today. thank you. here's another present christine my baby boys, dexter and ziggy, just there chilling. when we come right back we're going to be talking about apple

8:15 am
it appears that's going to be the case with the new version. apple hasn't commented on the rumors. of course they want the rumors to continue to go on. we'll keep you posted as more information comes out. but now let's cash in. watching the olympics is such an inspiration you want on go out and get those medals for yourself. it requires a the look of dedication, and a lot of training. how about a few medals when it comes to your money? the good news is just a few little changes to your every day routine you can bring home some gold. here's how to do it. for the bronze medal here's what i want you to do. you've got that high interest rate credit card, you know the one i'm talking about. if you're holding a $5,000 balance, transfer that balance over to a lower interest rate card. if you have a good credit history, easy to do. you can slash that right in half. save 450 bucks every year. pretty smart. and for the silver medal how about this tip, everybody wants to safe a few extra bucks.
8:16 am
the answer is in the president obama of your hand, using your smartphone check out an app called acorns. here's how it works. every time you use your debit card it rounds up the purchase to the next dollar amount, 5.99 round it up to 6 the. the extra change goes into your account. save 25-cents each time. at the end of the year your investment account will have nearly 500 bucks. pretty simple. silver medal you can go for the gold when it comes to retirement that is. here's how it works. say you're making 50,000, spend half of it, the other half put it in your 401(k) plan. if you do that each year for the next 30 years you'll have an extra $55,000 when you retire. that could be the difference between cat food, calf jar. there you go. with just a few little changes to your every day routine you can bring home the medals when it comes to managing your money.

that's why i'm a big fan of dead lifts it burns the most categories in a single movement if you're right. it's also one of the ones where you need instruction because you can hurt yourself if you don't know what you're doing. the main issue with the dead lift is the rounding of the back. a loft times we see this kind of curvative and a few tips to kind of avoid that. let's try it. i gotcha. you hold it. here we go. you're going to walk up to your bar leaving about an inch or so of space so your bar is right at the half point of your foot. listen, you're still talking. do it appropriately. exactly. shoulders back, keep the back down. i had no idea this wasn't that heavy. these are bumper plates, 10 pounds appease. what are the details on the party. >> i'm so excited. we're parterring up with
