6:42 am
or during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy since one of its ingredients may harm your unborn baby. your doctor should do a pregnancy test before starting dovato. use effective birth control while taking dovato. the most common side effects are headache, diarrhea, nausea, trouble sleeping, and tiredness. so much goes into who i am and hope to be. ask your doctor if starting hiv treatment with dovato is right for you.

many people think of the bay area as just san francisco, oakland, and san jose. but there's so much more. like all this. it's where we work, live, and love. all of our cities big and small are facing the same problems and everyone is looking for solutions. that's why abc 7 is looking for answers and inspiration in communities throughout the region and revealing how they're tackling the same big problems. how is fremont working to build a better bay area. for the last month abc 7 news has been embedded in the city of fremont. this week we'll bring you the stories about community solutions about problems we're all facing. abc7 news reporter liz kreutz has a closer look at fremont itself and it's fascinating history. >> reporter: olet's ta a. if you're not from there, maybe
6:44 am
you don't know that much about it. maybe you're like, wait, where is it again? fremont, east bay or south bay? >> east. >> east bay. >> oh! >> it's south. >> to me, it's always been south. >> but you say -- >> east bay. >> why? >> reporter: fremont is here. yes. in the east bay at the end of the b.a.r.t. line in south alameda county nestled around silicon valley. it's actually a pretty cool place with some fascinating history, which, spoiler alert, has to do with hollywood, but we'll get to that in a minute. the first thing to know about fremont, it's huge. nearly 92 square miles. almost twice the square footage of san francisco and in terms of population, the fourth largest city in the bay area. it's also relatively new, it wasn't officially formed until 1956, more than 100 years after san jose. when five separate towns, centerville, niles, mission san jose, warm springs and irvington merged into one. that said, life has been there for years. seriously.
6:45 am
fremont made headlines a few years back when a trove of ice age fossils and extinct years os unearthed by a construction crew working in the city. decades earlier, in the 1940s, a group of young boys found similar fossils. today, fremont is known for a few reasons. one, it's extraordinarily diverse. it has the country's largest afghan population, and, second, it is the hub for tech manufacturing. it's where apple made its first mac commuters and where tesla has its main factory. but as some film buffs might tell you, it's known for something else. several silent movies were al filmed in fremont in the early 1900s, including five charlie chaplain films. remember "the tramp?" yep, filmed in fremont. chaplain didn't li ing. history says he didn't like it but he left his mark. the city has a museum dedicated to the history of silent films and an annual charlie chaplain celebration. a cool claim to fame, even now in modern times.
6:46 am
>> we'll be holding a live town hall this evening talking to fremont leaders about the issues that the city is facing. it includes housing, job creation and diversity. we'll be streaming the town hall on our website, as well as facebook and youtube. that starts at 5:00 this evening. it is a star-studded week in san francisco. >> thousands are here in the city for salesforce's dreamforce conference including president obama and david beckham. liz kreutz is live at moscone center. hi, liz. >> hi. i promise, i'm not in two place at once. we're here outside the moscone center. dreamforce is back this week. they mean business. the theme is trail blazers this year. hence this national park imagery around. dreamforce is the world's largest software conference. salesforce says they have more than 171,000 registered attendees this year. many of us know it can cause congestion around here. if you're traveling through the city be prepared.
