any negative energy around that he certainly, um, you know would have every right almost so to speak to do that. >> reporter: how anxious are you to get an opportunity? >> um, you know, i'm just as anxious as the next guy, you know? whenever that phone rings down in the bullpen you know you're always anxious to see if it's going to be your name and you want to be prepared for that moment. >> reporter: one guy who can relate to tim lincecum is travis ishikawa. he is part of giants history after not being figured into anyone's plans. >> the giants won the pennant! the giants won the pennant! >> reporter: people mention you in the same sentence as bobby thompson for historical reasons. what kind of honor is that? >> it's humbling. you know? you grow up as a kid learning about that story and obviously, you know, any kid that loves baseball probably reimagine that story. i know i did it a bunch of times as a kid so for it to just happen, i'm just honored and humbled to just be in the same sentence. >> reporter: lincecum didn't

through the altamont pass. your travel times just minutes away. good morning, everyone. it's tuesday, october 21. i'm michelle griego. >> hi, everyone. i'm frank mallicoat. just turned 5:30. developing news on the fight against ebola. the cdc steps up guidelines for healthcare workers handling patients. and here in california, nurses are pushing governor brown to prepare hospitals. kiet do is live in san jose on exactly what nurses are asking for. kiet. >> reporter: good morning, ebola is top of mind for a lot of people in the industry. and these nurses unions are making sure that their voices will be heard. and so here at the santa clara county government building, the nurses unions will be meeting with county supervisors to get n update in a couple of hours. these unions will also be meeting with the governor in hopes he will back them in pushing to make the highest levels of safety protection mandatory. right now the cdc only recommends the safety protections, which the nurses say is inadequate to force the hospitals to do it. they started an online petition
to urge president obama to mandate the high standards. if california does it, we'll be the first in the name to do so. so what are these new recommended standards from the cdc? the agency announced yesterday that no skin or hair should be exposed and that workers should use a respirator. these new guidelines come after two nurses became infected after caring for the texas man who died from ebola. it is unclear how those nurses contracted the disease but the greatest risk lies in how they take the gear off. >> if there is some sort of fluid on the front of that gown and you take it off and come in contact with it, well, that could be a very deadly mistake. >> reporter: the cdc admits that the previous guidelines were outdated. back here live at the santa clara county building where the press conference is scheduled for 8:5this morning. >> kiet, so will santa clara county be implementing some of the cdc guidelines? >> that's the understanding we are going to be asking that question, how far is the county willing to take this? will they make the cdc
guidelines mandatory? we'll see. live in san jose, kiet do, kpix 5. 5:31 now. governor brown laying out his long-term strategy for shoring up california's water system. it includes a plan to tunnel underneath the delta to make it a little easier to pump water to the central valley and then down south to southern california. he is even spending his money to promote it. he pitched the plan at stanford university's water conference yesterday. let's check the weather. we are getting a little bit of water. >> a few showers yesterday. that was nice just to see. we have another storm headed our way that could affect the giants game when they come back to san francisco. let's hope the timing on that doesn't work out like that. but out the door today we have some chilly temperatures to begin with early on. skies mostly clear a few high clouds off the coastline. we'll see a few passing by as we head throughout the day. still a lot of sunshine in between. 70s in the bay, mid-70s in the warmest valleys and 60s along the coastline. looking nice and clear toward san jose right now. the temperatures are cool though in the valleys.
49 in livermore. 46 in santa rosa. and 50 degrees in san jose. but this afternoon, plenty of sunshine going to warm us up. let's plan on 60s and 70s. let's check the roads with elizabeth. thank you, lawrence. out to the bay bridge toll plaza, the cash lanes are quickly filling in. no metering lights yet. but, you know, they turned them on yesterday at 5:39 just a few minutes from now. so if you want to beat the rush leave now. roadwork is gone on the incline to yerba buena island. so overall it's a nice start over at the bay bridge toll plaza. typical stuff. here's a live look at our sensors coming through the altamont pass and the livermore valley. so we are getting word of this stall blocking one lane approaching grant line and westbound 580 so that usually means traffic stacks up quickly on 205 out of tracy. that appears to be the case so far. only 23 miles per hour. then it's sluggish past that all the way to airway. that's your latest "kcbs" drive
to work. for the second time in less than a month uber has suspended a driver for violence reported against a passenger in san francisco. this time, the driver is accused of throwing a woman out of his car. it happened when they were trying to pick up a friend of the woman but she did not know the friend's exact address. >> next thing i know, we're stopped and he is running to my side of the car, cussing, telling me to get the "f" out of his car. he grabs my arm, i take that hand and i hold it up with my phone to take a picture. he lets go and grabs the phone and throws it down the street. and at that moment, i'm like i need to call the cops but then my phone is nowhere. >> the driver was cited by san francisco police. uber says it will buy the woman a new phone. escort accused of injecting a google executive with a deadly dose of heroin was just doing what she was told, according to her lawyer. 26-year-old alix tichelman was in court yesterday. police say surveillance video shows her shooting up 51-year- old forrest hayes on his yacht
last year. then walking away. her attorney says it was an accident. >> alix tichelman did nothing that mr. hayes did not want her to do. two adults engaged in mutual and cooperative drug use. and it went wrong. >> tichelman now faces manslaughter and drug charges. new this morning, oscar pistorius will spend the next five years in prison for killing his girlfriend. alfonso van marsh has more on what the judge had to say before she sentenced the olympian today. >> mr. pistorius, please rise. >> reporter: oscar pistorius stared straight ahead as the judge sentenced him for killing his girlfriend. >> the sentence imposed is the minimum imprisonment of 5 years. >> reporter: the judge said the decision to send him to prison for five years for killing reeva steinkamp was hers and hers alone. >> it would be a sad day for this country if an impression
were to be created that there was one law for the poor and disadvantaged and another for the rich and famous. >> reporter: police immediately took pistorius from the courtroom to a holding cell. last month, the judge cleared the 27-year-old of murdering steenkamp but convicted him of manslaughter known as culpable homicide in south africa. the judge ruled pistorius acted negligently with excessive force when he shot the model through a bathroom door in his home on valentine's day last year. pistorius insisted he thought he was firing his pistol at an intruder when he shot four bullets hitting steenkamp in the hip, arm and head. defense attorneys say pistorius may serve just 10 months behind bars and the rest of his five- year sentence under house arrest. alfonso van marsh, cbs news. so will the giants potential dynasty or the royals date with destiny prevail in the next few weeks? >> we'll see. the world series starts tonight. >> kpix 5's ryan takeo joins us

the 6th inning. >> they have been lights out. eight straight. homegrown talent the giants have a guy playing shortstop who grew up here. >> brandon crawford. we checked in with his mom yesterday. he is a pleasanton product. and there is her fifth grade class at vintage elementary school in pleasanton. lynn crawford teaches her students to dream big. >> miss crawford tells us about brandon and how he wanted to be a major league baseball player and nobody ever thought he would. >> reporter: so mom lynn is going to game three when the series shifts back to at&t. by the way, brandon's dad is in kansas city. >> he is in kansas city? >> yeah. >> they have been spoiled. you know? 3 world series in 5 years. >> he was part of the 2012 team and so that was the one that was kind of his coming out party for then so he has been part of one championship, hopefully he is going to get a second one. >> i have to say he has the

point falloff in one day to equate the damage of 1987. >> goodness. what is driving the recent drop in stocks? >> about a month ago investors were starting to worry about global growth stalling especially in europe and china. the fear is that just as the u.s. recovery has found more solid footing, the rest of the world might drag down the economy and corporate earnings. add to that the accumulated worries about geo-political events and the potential spread of ebola, you have an old- fashioned stock market route. but even at the worst levels last week, we didn't even qualify for a correction. that's defined as a 10% sell- off. it's been over three years since the s&p 500 corrected. we usually get them every year and a half or so. so we are overdue for a 10% drop. >> okay. so what can we learn from that crash and how can investors protect themselves today, jill? >> reporter: you know, you have heard me say this before. cash is king. if you keep an adequate
emergency fund, it can actually reduce the urge to panic and sell at the bottom. we saw that certainly in 2008 and 2009. planning, though, that's your queen of thorough financial planning that contemplates both good and bad markets, it can help you navigate a crash, a falloff, a correction and its aftermath. diversification and rebalancing, that's going to round out your royals family. remember, you have to understand your risk tolerance in order to build a diversified as set allocation plan, and you have to stick to that plan by rebalancing two to four times a year. for more on how the current stock market sell-off is not even close to the crash of 1987, go to jillonmoney.com. >> all right the. jill schlesinger, thank you. 5:41 now. legendary fashion designer oscar de laurenta has died after a long battle with cancer. he was a favorite of first ladies and "a" list celebrities. his final high-profile creation the wedding gown for george

sunny skies, a couple of high clouds cruising overhead today. so it should be a slightly warmer day. not a real strong ridge of high pressure building in but enough to keep us dry and bring us mild temperatures and then more rain could factor in the game this week on friday. high pressure you can see it often the coastline just a weak ridge but enough to hold these storms just enough to the north so sunshine returns, a lot of high clouds will roll over the top of the ridge especially into tomorrow and thursday. temperatures in the central valley into the 70s there. you will see 60 lake tahoe. be careful if you plan to head to the coastline. you will see lots of sunshine there, but the swells are running large about 9 to 11 feet so big breakers at the coastline and strong rip currentses, too. temperatures in the -- strong rip currents, too. temperatures in the 60s and 70s this afternoon. 7:25 sunrise. 6:24 sunset. very nice weather although clouding up late thursday. friday, the timing of that storm does not look good right now.
