7:11 am
i'm for it, man, it's fun. >> don't mock these people, folks. they made an error. >> but others came to offer support to campy's followers. >> what we're here to do is provide them hope and to give them an opportunity to work through that disappointment. and to realize that you know, christianity is not associated with this time of extreme interpretation of the word of god. >> they say according to the bible, there's no way to predict the date of rapture. they claim campy has made a mock of christianity and is profiting financially from it. >> i think it's sad, based on the theological positions of mr. camping. their erroneous, counterfeit, it's not the gospel of jesus christ. >> he's got followers that are distraught right now. he has given true christianity, true biblical christianity a black eye and has given those who disagree with christianity another opportunity to mock it. and we still have more ahead

7:15 am
14 miles per hour. low clouds, misty skies around the east bay, currently 51 degrees and there's the shark tank as we watch the game here on nbc bay area. coming up at noon. 50 right now. and around game time, if you're lucky enough to have tickets like someone in the studio is, as we're about to find out, you'll see temperatures probably in the mid 60s around noon today, southeast wind currently at 3 miles per hour. we've got patchy low clouds around the area and we also have some high clouds streaming in. we'll be watching this as we get through the afternoon. it is hockey weather, 60s to low 70s. not going to find any 80s around the bay area today. patchy low clouds will linger and we shu see some clearing heading into the evening tomorrow morning, another morning we could see some misty skies in a few spots. in the next few days we'll continue to watch systems that will brush by to the north. one of the changes we'll see in the forecast is a chance of showers possibly dropping down by the time we roll towards wednesday. so we're going to have to hold off on the warmup a little bit. you see over my shoulder, the
7:16 am
chances for showers on the increase as we get into right around midday wednesday and temperatures will rebound nicely as we approach the upcoming weekend. today around the bay area, great day for the sharks, we'll see temperatures in the upper 60s, 61 in san francisco, low 70s inland out towards the tri-valley. you'll see 72 in healdsburg. mid 70s out towards sacramento and chico. 62 degrees around truckee. the seven-day forecast shows the chances of showers as we head towards the middle part of the week. warmest days of the week should be thursday and friday. mid 70s coming back to the bay area. and we'll see ha happens next weekend. some cooling as we head to memorial day weekend. a nice weekend forecast. hockey weather, yes, go sharks, right here on nbc bay area. back to you. love to see you in the spirit, rob. spacewalking astronauts ran in a a bit of trouble this morning. they had a tough time lubricating a critical joint in the international space station's power system. and then a bolt got stuck in a crevice as well. before that, crew members
7:17 am
successfully recharged a leaky ammonia line. meantime, trouble for the california budget as well. still $10 billion in the red and that could mean 15 to 20 fewer school days next year. and it is a very real possibility. nbc bay area's political analyst larry gerston joins us this morning. it is shocking. i think people even with kids in school, they know how bad it's been and they're surprised to hear how bad it could get. >> the bell is not going to be rung for a lot of people until they learn just a few days perhaps, ahead of time. that there aren't going to be the teachers there. there aren't going to be the schools open the way they thought. the classes are going to be more crowded and the days will be shorter. it's a bad combination that people just aren't getting yet, because it seems so far away, but it's not as far as we think. >> when the governor presented his may version of his budgets. there was an additional income tax kind of windfall of $6 billion 6 billion or so. so doesn't that mean that schools are going to get more
7:18 am
money? isn't that enough to help the situation? >> here's the story on that, chris. $6.6 billion is welcome, there's no question about it, okay? obviously, but we still have a $10 billion gap -- still, even with the $6 billion. now public education accounts for 40%, 40% of the state budget. so if we're, if we're $10 billion short, let's say, round numbers, okay? public education gets 40%. that's $4 billion that she'll be short-changed. $4 billion, and do you the math and it's about $1 billion a week. $1 billion is ha it costs to educate k-12 in california. that means three or four weeks. that's an awful lot to take away. it's amazing. it's amazing. >> we know that the per-pupil spending in california, we rank at the bottom in the nation. what does it look like in terms of how many school days we have to length of the school year, the length of the school day? >> not so many years ago, the
7:19 am
school year in some districts was up to 190. the legislature had a minimum of 180. last year they shortened it to 175 and allowed some districts to go down to 170. we now rank 48th in per-pupil spending. we're spending about $7,000 a year per student. but put this in perspective. texas, we always mock texas, right? texas spends $11,000 a year. go to places like new york, massachusetts, rhode island, kr9 contra connecticut, they spend upwards of $13,000 a year. you put it together and we've got a cataclysmic situation. only four states have shorter school-day years. we're likely to be the shortest school-day year state in the nation, no question about it. >> it doesn't look like parents, they do a lot of fundraising, you know, they work really hard with the five k's and the -- 5
7:20 am
k's an bake sales, it will take more than that. >> it is, chris. and it sets up another problem that some people haven't thought out. some districts will be okay no matter what. we know around here in cupertino, a few months ago, they raised in a short time, $2 million or $3 million to preserve positions for school teachers. beverly hills a couple of weeks ago inside of a week raised almost $1 million. you can do that in beverly hills, can you do it in cupertino. what do you do in places where you don't have a lot of room or money or houses that are well to do? that's the difference between have's and have not's growing by the day. >> and it's going to be difficult for families as well as they try to figure out their child care situation as well. >> child care -- >> and we also, we know that of all the things that children get to set them up for success, it's education. and as that school year goes down and down, we're not only losing our competitive edge with other states, we're certainly
7:21 am
losing it with other nations. and that translates into jobs down the road. and that's why this thing has consequences. that could go on for generations. >> thank you vy much, larry, and don't forget, you can get larry's political insight any time, anywhere, nbc bay we still have more ahead for you on "today in the bay." including the best burger in the bay area. good morning, i'm mike inouye, and there's lots to do today in lthe bai. d-o-o-f, is doo dpmpbpalooza. it is the third year for this free family food festival for kids of all ages, you could learn about all parts of the food journey, from source to table top and fun things about the process in between. there's even something called the great shakoff where you can make butter while dancing. and an event that's got me dancing with excitement, is the sixth annual maker fair in san
7:22 am
mateo, practical, whimsical, experimental, original. the maker fair is where arts and crafts bridges over with science and engineering. now if coke zero and mentos, milk jug igloo. a spaceship tree house piques your interest, this is the fair for you. the maker fair, where the slogan is, if you think it, you can build it and then make it shoot fire. come to camel for a rocking good time in silent fashion. a very vocal reminder about the silent auction to raise money for st. jude's hospital. this honors the memory of little julian fargen, you can see autographed guitars by legends and more items by john mayer, sammy hagar and even joan baez. helping out kids and families in the name of one very special an that' s

all burgers are not created equal. we put a celebrity chef in the hot seat and tasked him with finding the best one. hi, i'm scott howard, with all the burger joints popping up all over the bay area and nation, we wanted it take a chance to see how five local favorites stack up against each other. obviously there's a lot more out there, but these are five that have locations here that we can all enjo i. they're all plain. just a hamburger, bun, with cheese. i don't know what they are. >> a straight cheeseburger by far the best seller off the whole menu. >> it's out of this world. to me, a little too much bread, but a nice quality. >> the way we prepare it, you're going to get a taste in every bite. >> our bun is kind of a sweet taste to it. >> it's a little bit on the dry
7:26 am
side. nice sesame seed bun, but i'll pass. >> we pride ourselves og vn the best burger in san jose, maybe the state of california and maybe the entire world. fresh, juicy, great burger. >> this has a great, artisan-looking bun. good quality, a a nice sized patty. >> if you like the way hamburgers were cooked 50 years ago, you're going to love ours. >> they kind of speak for themselves. >> the patty tastes great this may be like a really good quality meat. >> this is a really small patty. i think it's way too much bread for that. so let's see who produces my favorite burger, and that would be -- the counter. i like the quality of the products. really good buns. really good meat. >> i'm not shocked. >> my runner-up is for jeffreys. >> a little bit of extra hard work does make a difference. >> i think this one here is just -- not a lot of burger. while i really like the quality
7:27 am
of the meat on this one, i didn't think much about the bun. and the same with this one here. i love burgers, it's the american classic and i think to me these are the two stand-outs that we have here today. >> i guess we know where we're going for lunch. and the san jose sharks try to even the western conference series with the vancouver canucks, the looking live at the shark tank where they meet at noon. if you don't have tickets, like larry gerston, you can watch the game with us here on nbc bay area. then we host a wrap-up show immediately after the game. hockey weather? yes, it is. >> we're in the spirit here. >> i'm liking it and it's nice and cool. >> not cool enough to play hockey outdoors, but comfortable enough to wear the hockey sweater this morning and temperatures 60s and 70s today, maybe a little bit warmer come thursday an friday, we'll wait for spring to come back to the bay area. but for now, go sharks. thank you very much and
