6:00 am
hospitalized. we'll have the story coming up in a live report. >> and a woman is stabbed to death in san jose overnight. we'll have very latest on this developing story. it's friday, august 5th, taking a live look outside. good news, the numbers when it comes to the temperature, this is "today in the bay." >> good friday morning. thanks for joining us. it's 6:00 right now. i'm laura garcia-cannon. time to check in with meteorologist christina loren. a good looking forecast? >> a great looking forecast, perfect for sleeping in. outdoor activities. it's the weekend. temperatures are going to be comfortable. we're talking about the upper 70s and low 80s. gorgeous weather. a little bit after change as we head into next week. we'll talk that and we're watching a foggy commute. let's check that drive right now with mike. >> we do have an accident, red
6:01 am
light flashing in my head. 580 at north flynn. it's eastbound. that's opposite the main commute. you see the slowing. may be looky who slowing. a typical slowdown for a friday but we'll watch to see if it affects it coming up. >> thank you very much, mike. a lot of people waking up with money on their mind. the federal government released its latest jobs report last hour. how could it affect the markets after yesterday's 512-point drop on wall street? scott mcgrew is in the newsroom with a look at the report. >> first jobs, then wall street. the jobs, okay. here are the numbers, 117,000 to the positive, for the july jobs report that gives our unemployment rate at 9.1%. that's better than it's been. it's down .1% but i want to call your attention to the 117, that's not good enough.
6:02 am
you need 125,000 jobs just to cover the 18-year-olds that enter the economy every month. so, not particularly of a positive number. how will wall street react? that is a tough question. as we look at some of the laborers out there. wall street will have to look at the negative number, the negative net number and not be happy with it. as far as if it had been a worse number it might have been better on wall street. the immediate may have jumped in and given us action. these are the numbers we've got. they are muddy numbers at best. these are nationwide numbers. as far as local, santa clara county, as far as silicon valley, the numbers are much better. bob has been covering that for us. good morning, bob. >> reporter: good morning. some tell the business journal that the hiring that they are
6:03 am
seeing ensilicon valley reminds them of what it was like during the dotcom boom. you look at companies like emay it seems that way. the online augs near had 600 openings. apple is looking to hire 600. the unemployment rate for tech professionals is just 3.3%. that's a drop of two points from where it was in january. the white house is impressed so much so that the council on job flew out to silicon valley to pick the brains of the leaders, to figure out how they can spread that job growth throughout the country. the growth in tech is fueling hiring. you got to remember those new computer engineers who got a new job, they have to eat, need a place to lish, et cetera, which is why restaurants and construction added thousands of jobs. however, in spite of what i told you, the unemployment rate itself in the south bay, you
6:04 am
take into account all of the industries is not so good. in june it was 10.5%. that's up from 9.9% in may. this seems counter intuitive. i told you they added thousands of jobs. labor experts believe this is a reflect of more unemployed people getting back in the job search. now is that -- that businesses are riring. not everyone is hiring. i remind you of a report we told you about a few weeks ago. cisco systems, announcing it will lay off soon 6500 employees. worldwide. a huge chunk of those from here in the south bay. reporting live, bob redell, "today in the bay." >> many will be out looking as well. 6:04. if there is a silver lining to the bad economy it's mortgage rates. they are dropping to new historic lows. 15-year fixed and 5-year adju

6:06 am
>> we're also following a developing story out of san francisco. a 9-year-old boy is in the hospital right now fighting for his life. he was hit by a wrong way driver while christie smithing the street and the driver never stopped. it happened after 10:30 at mission and new montgomery near the art museum. christie smith is live in hayward where police say they dropped the truck matching the description from san francisco and took that driver into custo custody. >> reporter: witnesses describe a horrible scene of a driver going the wrong way down the street in san francisco, and slamming into a 9-year-old boy trying to cross the street. san francisco police put out a : bulletin. about 90 minutes later hayward police spot add damaged pickup truck on motion and industrial. witnesses believe it was the with severe front end
6:07 am
damage. some witnesses were brought to the scene. police tell me they believe that the driver may have been under the influence. here's what we know. investigator s know that he was crossing mission near new montgomery when a truck came the wrong way and plowed into the boy. the driver kept on going, witnesses couldn't believe their eyes. >> i believe he was speeding, heading somewhere. maybe he had hit some fares on you mention it. he was trying to make a right on third and hit cab on third and mission. made a right on third and was trying to get away. >> reporter: as he mentioned the driver hit cars and then got on the freeway. the scene so bad that even san francisco police chief greg, the
6:08 am
boy was from philly and had gone to see a giants game last night. he's now at san francisco general where critical injuries we're told. that's the latest. live in hayward, today in the bay. >> let's hope he makes a speedy recovery. 6:08. san leandro police are looking into a string of recent robberies that appear related. five have been robbed in three weeks. you see the locations of the robbery on the screen. in each instance they were walking alone when they say a group of two to four approached them. the victim was pushed to the ground and robbed of their wallet or purse. no one was serious hi injured. a los gatos mother will have to register as a sex offender the rest of her life. in a well pub sized trial a jury

violence, hoping to see changes with the event. the downtown, so has considered charging at mission but so far dhaept free to the public. >> nice to get out and about in the gay area. we'll have great temperatures for today and this weekend. >> you know, when we have nice weather it always makes for more free fun because you can take anything that you wanted to do inside, bring it outside and hence you get a little more fun. if you want a picnic, in the beginning of august it's going to be comfortable. temperatures running about with 10 to 15 degrees below seasonal charges. we have good possibility. it is starting to drop in the north bay. looking good. our san a rosa number has come down to three miles of visibility. watch out. also we do have a little bit of that drizzle generated about i a deep marine layer.

6:16 am
would like to see it but any news is good news at this point on the jobs front. so wall street is expected to open higher. the question is whether that advance will hold. it is a friday, a lot of traders don't like to hold big stock positions over the weekend. so we may have a higher opening but that's no guarantee we won't see the markets sell off a little into the close. >> hopefully not like yesterday. we'll be monitoring it. thank you. >> right. >> today in the bay's kimberly tere joins us in san francisco's financial district getting reaction finding out what investors are planning next. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, laura. traders are arriving here at work hoping for a better day than they had yesterday. but at the same time they say they have been in this business long enough to know there are ups and downs and this is a bump in the road. tell that to consumers. people are concerned about high unemployment numbers, concerned about the prospect of a
6:17 am
prolonged recession and of course they are worried that the government doesn't have a viable plan to stimulate the economy. because of all of this financial analysts say consumers are keeping their cash close. however, traders we talked to say people should not panic and also should not be so concerned with the numbers. they say prudence is the most reliable way to navigate this market. >> it's good to diversify and reallocate and take a look at basically what your investments are. you should do that constantly. at the same time don't have a knee-jerk reaction. it doesn't make sense. >> reporter: traders say you can still make money in this market. that's despite the doom and gloom. we have to mention the new numberscc1: are out which could impact trading.cc1: the federal government is reporting employers added 117,000 jobs last month, that brings the unemployment rate to 9.1%. that is down from 9.2% in june.

6:19 am
today, tomorrow into sunday. we have coastal drizzle. slick conditions over the bridges. you want the take it easy out there. nothing we're not accustomed to. high pressure is going to warm us up a little. we're going to have to wait until monday, tuesday, wednesday and not going to warm that much. maybe to mid-80s in the warmest spots. we eliminate the 90s. 57 in livermore, we're mild. 55 san mateo up to santa rosa. watch out for the fog, though, uniform temperatures because we have mostly cloudy conditions, a pretty thick marine layer. it's going to take a while to get out of your area. i think you'll see the sun shine through by about 12:30. 79 in fremont today, in the heat of the day should be comfortable in fremont. and 66, cool and cloudy in san francisco for today. trying to make the weekend plans, good at the beach, pretty

>> welcome back everyone. 6:23 right now. realizing many of you have to get out the door this morning. here to help with the morning commute, mike. >> laura, things are relatively easy going around the bay. but there's some reports, this one specifically in sunol. there is a fire reported southbound 680 at vargas.
6:24 am
we have a camera north of there. he did find this. let's get the live shot. he found smoke. the bottom of the screen, just off sunol by the golf course. in the distance over the ridge there is smoke. it's white. sometimes we see smoke coming out of exhaust out of some of the factories or businesses. so we're checking. it was reported as smoke on maybe a telephone pole. if this is not a fire, this is just off 680. no major problems reported. we've got our eyes on this. we'll follow this as well. the south bay moving smoothly. check our maps, we'll end with this, the bay bridge toll plaza not a major issue but we'll show it to you. >> good news it didn't look like dark smoke. 6:24. another reality show talking about running for president. >> my announcement is that i am running for president of the united states. >> wow.

6:26 am
again the more vulnerable the company the bigger the hit you take in these tough times. apple shares were down as well, but yesterday's action put apple within reach of becoming the world's most valuable company. exxon-mobil was hit harder, so apple needs $16 billion in additional value till we get to say the most important company in the history of mankind is in cupertino. not everything is positive for apple. google either. this is national public radio reporter who did a report for this american life looking at how patents are killing business. she is one of the reporters on press here this week and we're going to look at this phenomenon. just this week microsoft hit going to well a lawsuit over the android system that could be huge damage for the android system. so we'll take a look at that at 9:00 a.m. sunday morning.

6:32 am
everything that you and i and all americans make each quarter, grow by just .4%. borderline recession. then this morning we got the jobs numbers. let's look at those. in july, the american economy added 117,000 jobs. that is better than expected but not enough to cover the 18-year-olds who enter the job force everyñr month. you could say good news but i would ignore that for now. that's nationwide. here in the bay area, and in the south bay in particular, things are much better assuming that you have skills and education. bob redell is out live in front of ebay. ebay is hiring, bob. >> reporter: yeah, they are hiring big time. good morning to you, scott. hiring like it's 1999. that's how one headline labels the job situation in silicon valley. if you look at ebay it seems
6:33 am
that way. the online auctioneer has 600 openings, apple 600, google 580. the the unemployment rate for tech professionals is just 3.3%. that's a drop of two points from january. the white house is impressed, so much so that the president's council on jobs flew out to silicon valley to pick the brains of leaders to figure out how they can spread that kind of job growth throughout the country. the growth in tech in fueling hiring in other industries. the computer engineers, they need a place to live, a place to eat, that's why you see thousands of jobs added in businesses like restaurants and construction, talking about here in the south bay. however, in spite of what i told you, the unemployment rate itself in the south bay is not so good. in june it was 10.5%, that was up from 9.9% in may.

6:35 am
truck. one was so damaged that it was easy to spot hear at mission and industrial in hayward. the driver was arrested here and san francisco police route witnesses over from san francisco who believe that this was the truck that hit a 9-year-old boy, the arrest happening about 90 minutes afterwards here in the east bay. police say that the boy was walking ahead of his family, crossing mission street. it was around 10:30 last night when a driver hit him. didn't bother to stop and was going the wrong way. the boy is from philly and had just come from enjoying a giants game. we spoke with witnesses. >> that's very tough. especially being that they were coming from the game, trying to have a good evening. something that unfortunate to happen. >> the driver we're told hit several other cars, both parked and cars in the street.

6:37 am
was picked up. silva and cardenas are considered armed and dangerous. it's 6:37. let's check the forecast with christina loren. >> good morning to you. a friday, we've got a great looking weekend on tap. a little drizzle this morning provided by a really deep marine layer so watch for that but overall, all of that cloud cover will clear out. i'm thinking by about 9:30 and then probably 12 and 1:30 at the coast. mostly cloudy start for most of the bay area. sunny later. bring the shades with you. we'll have full sunshine by about 4:00 p.m. by the weekend, warm inland. cool and choudy at the coast. you can get by with a fly fan and save on the ac bill. 55 in san francisco. 56 in oakland and 57 in napa

6:43 am
think they make a difference at all? >> reporter: looks like at least so far they may be making things better. this jobs report from july was way better than economists predicted and quite a bit better than we saw last month. five times as many jobs created in july. 117,000 in all. that drove the unemployment rate down ever so slightly to 9.1%. 154,000 private jobs, many of them in retail and health care but that was balanced by a big loss in government jobs, a lot of that had to do with the government shutdown in minnesota last month. earnings are up, it's a better report than expected but it's still not quite what we need to see to keep this recovery going. later today president obama expected to announce a new plan to get businesses to hire military veterans. there are a million looking for work. if we give tax breaks to
