along the terminal curbs. natsto relieve the congestions, the airport is considering implementing a two tiered pricing system for ride share services like lyft and uber. users would pay a premium to be dropped off or picked up curbside at the terminals and a pay lower rate to be picked up or dropped off further away in the garage. the airport would convert the top level of the main parking garage into a ride share zone. friday afternoon, travellers at the airport seemed to like the idea of reducing congestion but some where skeptical of the new pricing plan.soti think it's ok. if it saves congestion that fine. if the people coming in get easier access to the airport that ok.sotif i'm already paying for uber they should drop me off where i want to be dropped off. i shouldn't have to pay twice or extra just to be dropped off closer.soti don't think it's a terrible idea if congestion is really that bad. if uber customers are being singled out when i'm not sure if there is an actual increase on the account of uber seems like a covert way to punich uber users.the airport says that exactly how
much people would pay for the premium drop off or pick up is still under discussion. a final plan would still need to be approved by the airport commission, which is scheduled to discuss the issue next week. if the plan is approved, the new could go into effect as soon as july 1st. at sfo, charles clifford kron 4 news.

(hermela aregawi)they will have an additional 1 to five seconds .. depending on how wide the street is. advocates tell me.. it may not seem significant to some people... but it can be the difference between someone crossing the street and almost crossing the street and potentially getting hit by a driver. pedestrians in san francsico will soon have a little more time to cross the street.. at many intersections.the change is part of a new city plan that was driven largely by senior and disability advocacy groups... who say that.. at some cross walks there is just not enough time. alice chiu/san francsicoyou know if you are not steady on your foot, it's scary, it's definitely scary and you know, car turning right in front of you and left in front of you, all those are concerns. and so knowing that we will have more time to cross, it's definitely a comfort joseph huller/san franciscoi've had some close calls and seen some other people have close calls and seen some other people have some close calls. and if a couple of extra seconds on a crosswalk means saving someone's life. i think that's a pretty easy sell.pedestrians at a total of 1200 crosswalks in the city will get an additional one to five seconds to cross the street.. depending on how wide it is.
seniors and people with disabilities say.. that can make all the difference. joseph huller/pedestriani don't go right away. i wait. and sometimes people pedestrians go, oh green light. i say don't tell me. i know when to go. so i usually wait for a few seconds because i need to assess if it's safe for me to go or not. giving us more time to cross, that allows me to feel like ok, i'm safe now. i can go we also asked people.. how they think it will affect traffic. joseph huller/pedestriani think that the congestion problems with traffic have less to do with the number of seconds that are on the cross and more to do with a larger infrastructre problemi hate to jump on the bandwagon but as someone who used to drive for uber. i think that i can say that is a part of the problem. the sort of milieu of different things that are happening, you know like the bikes, and scooters and everything is part of the problem (hermela aregawi) sfmta tells us they have already started implementing the.. and will finish most of the crosswalks in the next 2 to 3 years. and all of them in 10 years... reporting live in san francisco hermela aregawi kron 4 news.

you know, it's interesting. i think philosophically sometimes your destiny chooses you."he started practicing twelve years ago...girling sot- "this event happened and i found mindfulness in it and it changed my life."...then partnered with a local instructor to create mindfulness based resilience training. and by 2014, was teaching other cops. girling interview- "for me, its this quest to constantly improve." he got certified the next year. and this month, published research with pacific university."michael christopher (professor) interview; "this is the first thing that we're aware of where we can actually demonstrate a reduction in aggressive tendencies in police officers."professor michael christopher and girling studied forty-three police officers and their spit; which contains cortisol. the body's main stress hormone. christopher interview- "it's something that helps the body, but too much of a good thing becomes a bad thing." christopher studied the cops' cortisol levels before and after they practiced mindfulness everyday for eight weeks.christopher interview- "so exciting as we saw a quicker return back to baseline which is indicative of better health."cops are twice as likely to be depressed, forty percent of them are obese and they're more likely to die by suicide than in the line of duty. christopher interview- "we've had officers come up to us at the end of the training and say, 'i was about ready to leave this profession', or 'i don't think i was going to be able to make it. i was about ready to end my marriage. i just couldn't do it. and you guys have given me some hope." christopher hopes the new found science will help shift
those statistics, while the lieutenant thinks mindfulness can cultivate more compassionate cops to cut down on excessive force. girling interview- "we need fear, we need anger, we need anxiety. we need ego. but we need to regulate them in ways that allow us to show up from a place of grounded compassion and skillful equity. and that will impact how we use force out in the field. and i would argue that when we're trained i nthis way, combined with some other good tactical training, we'll make better decisions."the cops in this class and other first responders voluntarily signed up for the session.reporter- "what was the hardest part so far?"unknown- "sitting in one place for thirty minutes at a time.it's new to a lot of them, but in some cultures, mindfulness has been around for thousands of years. unknown- "if i feel better at the end of the day or better tomorrow, maybe do it the next day and kind of build from last year alone, lieutenant trained at least six-hundred first that rate, what was just a fringe idea...which point you can open your eyes and join the ...is gaining a whole lot of girling interview- "it's important to where they are, and where people are here, they're suffering they're heroes, they're doing amazing work and in the most extreme cases, they're interested in a life line. and i have to throw that."
