we had almost 90 cases of primary and secondary syphilis, when it's kquite infectious to other compared to a handful a decade ago. >> reporter: more than half affected with syphilis have been diagnosed with hiv. one reason for increase, many hiv patients are living longer and getting lax about safe sex. but internet has played a role, too. >> the internet has facilitated meeting partners and fa ticilitd meeting anone muss partners. more sex with more partners means more transmission of sexually transmitted diseases. >> reporter: these health care workers are dedicated to finding new ways to spread the word about prevention. while there is still no cure for aids, patients are living much longer than they did 30 years ago. some of them have been able to get their medications down to one or two pills a day.
but aids activists tell me that now teenagers view this as a manageable disease and they're no longer taking necessary precautions to prevent hiv infection. reporting live from sans jose, mary ann favro, nbc bay area news. still ahead at 6:00, could increasing a child's intake of cholesterol be a good thing? the serious condition that could combat. i'm scott budman at the google developer conference where music is the star. we'll show you how it works and how you can take it with you. plus, from the bay area to the white house, a group of local students getting a personal meeting tomorrow with the first lady. and if you're in the south bay today, it was stunning outside. temperatures in the 0s and a lot of sun. for the coastline, cooler in san francisco.ogng i adylreteang we'll talk all about the fog and even still that rain in my

so two major story lines. joined by our political analyst, larry gershwin. power to the people locally, but it could be dangerous in terms of school districts like palo alto, more affluent districts might outraise. >> it can establish great differences between cities and counties and school districts, no question about it. look, his office by the way i called his office. what's the story with the bill you want to raise $13 billion, which is the amount that governor brown wants. is there a coincidence here? no, we're just keeping options open. here's the trick with the bill. only takes a majority, a majority, ladies and gentlemen, to pass this bill in each house. that has to have republicans in a tizzy, knowing that all of these taxes might be raised at local levels. >> republicans also want that, bringing power to the state and county level? >> they'd rather see power at the local level, they'd rather see no taxes at all at least in terms of increases. so they're kind of caught here. to use a football analogy, looks
like the democrats may be trying an end around. >> extra $6 billion in revenue that comes with california. things fluctuate. does it take the wind our of jerry brown's sails? >> it puts the governor in a tough spot, between a rock and a hard spot. on the one hand you see $6 billion come in, wow, that's terrific. but does it take away from the argument? some would say it does. brown would say, we have vagaries when it comes to collecting revenues we have to come out with some way to stabilize this, let me extend temporary taxes until we get your tax system straightened out. >> two possible game changers. thank you. still ahead at 6:00, high cholesterol levels are not typically considered a good thing but they may help some children dealing with autism. also ahead, the story that parents might not look. the surprising report on how many children are on facebook
