5:03 am
people, a dozen people in an icu in even some of the worst food-borne illness cases. >> reporter: that attorney should know. he represented 16 families who got sick from shigella back in 2000. one person died in that outbreak and more than 100 other people got sick. the redwood city restaurant where they ate is now closed for good. the shigella bacteria is very con table ous. the health director says not all 80 people who got sick had dinner at that restaurant. some of these infections may be secondary infections where people got sick at the restaurant, took it home and passed it on. make sure you check the health records for the restaurants where you dine and if you have any symptoms, do call the public health department or your own doctor. in san jose, kris sanchez, "today in the bay." beware of shoulder surfing, especially in san leandro.

5:06 am
the two most popular forms are robitussin and core see den. ccc, poor man's pcp or velvet. it's referred to as decksing, robo tripping and skittaling. an e-mail went out to parents warning taking too much of dxm can produce a high that produces hallucinatio hallucinations, dizziness vomiting, seizures, coma and in rare cases even death. the dea says dxm abuse is on the rise because they're easier to hide. they're asking parents to keep a close eye on this. she wrote in part, quote, please start a dpie log with your students about ccc. if concerns arise that your students or his or her friends are experimenting, consider working collaboratively with the school. this is also accessible online, on amazon. you can get a pack of 50 tablets

5:08 am
so the fast track lanes are moving just as smoothly as the cash lanes which cleared up a few minutes ago. expect more traffic for highway 4, slowing through antioch. that will increase the volume building toward the toll plaza and the may. we have slowing registering on our sensors after the road crew is scheduled to clear. as the road crew clears, we have a little slowing there. no incidents, peninsula or south bay. the run up to the democratic nomination hardly incident free. coming up next, still no answers from vice president joe biden. but that has not stopped him from taking some shots at former secretary hillary clinton. plus we're taking you "back to the future." we'll take a look back at the movie that was truly ahead of its time.

5:11 am
this morning vice president . you see the banner there, decision 2016, or is it really more like indecision 2016. this morning vice president joe biden still has not made up his mind if he's going to run for president. now he is taking some shots at hillary clinton. "today in the bay's" tracie potts joining us from washington, d.c. this morning. tracie, biden is starting to sound a lot like a presidential candidate, but he hasn't made any sort of declaration yet? >> reporter: no, he hasn't. at least he hasn't told us if he's made a decision. could today be the day? we were told two days ago 48 hours. that ends today. he might announce his decision,
5:12 am
he is out there sounding a lot like a candidate. hillary clinton calls herself an enemy of republicans. joe biden calls them friends. >> i really respect the members up there and i still have a lot of republican friends. i don't think my chief enemy is the republican party. this is a matter of, you know, making things work. >> reporter: not yet a candidate, but drawing distinctions between himself and the democratic front-runner and clarifying the record. in 2012 biden advised president obama to go slow against osama bin laden. today -- >> i told him my opinion, he should go. >> reporter: will he run or won't he? >> it makes him look indecisive. >> it's time for a decision one way or the other. >> reporter: meantime, clinton is deciding to testify on the deadly benghazi attack, what she knew, her e-mails. >> this has been a very fact
5:13 am
focused investigation. >> reporter: democrats call it a witch hunt. >> our nbc "wall street journal" poll finds more americans than not. 44% is not satisfied with her answers. just over 1 in 4 in that poll saying they consider her honest. >> a lot of attention on that. thank you very much, tracie. also in d.c., there is a hearing at the nation's capital, the house homeland security committee will be examining the threat from isis and the possible impact of europe's refugee crisis, what impact it might have on u.s. security. secretary of homeland security, jeh johnson and fbi director james comey are set to testify. in the meantime, more details on how the cia director's e-mail was hacked.
5:14 am
>> scott mcgrew, hack saturday a generous term in this case. >> that would honestly be fairly comical if it weren't so alarming. the bad guys who describe themselves as pot smoking 20-somethings. that's their words, didn't hack the account at all. they convinced people at american online to change the cia director's password. yes, you heard me correctly, the director of the cia has american online. the hackers were able to convince verizon-owned aol they were john brennan and got the company to reset the account and apparently got into the e-mail. "the new york times" says none of the e-mails were classified. apparently some social security numbers were there in the e-mails because they're part of the washington party guest list. social security numbers, often part of the inside the beltway security clearances. you saw ahmed mohamed got to visit the president, the kid from texas who alarmed people in texas by building a clock.
5:15 am
now he's moving to qatar. the family issued a statement saying ahmed had been offered a number of scholarship. they have chosen one from the country of qatar. dohar is home to even american universities like texas a&m. landon dowdy is live at cnbc world headquarters. good morning. >> there good morning to you. features are higher after a rough day of trading on wall street are all three major averages closing lower and the dow snapping a three-day winning streak. no real economic data out this morning. we have a slew of earnings from boeing, coke, general motors, american express, ebay and many more. the nasdaq down 25 to 4880. scott, back over to you. >> thanks, landon. remember the segue scooter was going to change the world and it didn't. the company was bought a few years ago by a chinese company, this morning showing off what you might call segue 2.0.
5:16 am
they call it the 9 bot mini. this is the company's video. you can't get a good look at it. it appears to be the bad guys from "pitch perfect 2." but you can kind of see -- there's no handle. there's this thing that goes between your knees. here is the important thing, guys. 315 bucks. not available yet, but still, 315 for what is fundamentally a segue. i'm still not going to be riding it. >> it's the common man's segue. >> got to learn the dance. kind of like voguing. >> that looks like something that might have been in "back to the future." here we are. "the movie bark to the future 2 msh made predictions about what 2015 would look like. featuring a teenager who travels to october 21st, 2015. some of the movie's
5:17 am
predictions actually became reality. >> reporter: laura and sam, obviously this fashion trend took off. who hasn't seen anyone wearing the double neck tie from back when they predicted that 30 years ago, or didn't take off. maybe not. one thing we see in that movie that's very predominant, especially when marty enters the village square are all the hover boards. yes, the technology exists, but does it exist in the free form we saw in "back to the future 2?" not exactly. the only hitch is you have to be on a copper floor. it's electromagnetic. it's not free floating like you see in the movie. the movie predicts the cubs win the world series. that's totally going to happen because right now they're only 0-3 and they play the mets later today, and i'm sure the mets are
5:18 am
not going to sweep them. it's most likely that the cubs will come back and wichb the world series. in all fairness, if you come back live, we have delorians out and about, not as many as they used to be. of course, they're not flying kind. we are here at san diego state university talking about time travel. time travel, at least jumping ahead in time is possible according to one physicist here, professor at the university, a minor engineering problem which you probably are or are not familiar with. we'll have that coming up within the next half hour. also, bob, i like your optimism about the cubs. you think they're going to pull it out, despite the fact they have their backs against the wall. it would be the perfect story. >> reporter: much to your chagrin. >> lifelong mets fan.
5:19 am
i don't doubt they'll break my heart again. thank you for bringing that up, bob. >> interesting to think -- if people would want to go into the future or back into the past, maybe to see a loved one or something. >> true. >> going back to your roots. >> that's true. that's a good point. but we're in the present. the into is a gift. isn't that what someone said? i saw it as a plaque in someone's kitchen. >> good philosophy on a wednesday morning. we'll also get into a little forecasting of the future. >> yes, the near future. we'll go way ahead to 2:00 this afternoon. i'll tell you it will be in the 80s today. as we take a live look, we'll bring it back to the present, everyone getting this day started. mostly clear skies across the bay. it is going to be warmer this afternoon. it's 56 in livermore, 57 in sunnyvale. san jose at 54 degrees. let's go hour by hour in

5:21 am
average. as you can see, it stays here and slowly starts to back off with the heat. let's see if you have problems with the commute. >> i'm glad you said that, back off from the heat. we're looking here at the commute. this is the span of course. the live shot showing the smooth stream westbound. no back up at the bay bridge, just starting for the cash lanes. oakland coming up 880 past the coliseum, past high street, a typical flow for the nimitz. a nice smooth flow of traffic. slowing for antioch, a slowdown still as the road crew cleared. we have all lanes northbound 288 cleared off the castro valley y. that might be what's causing the lower sensor read. here is the south bay with no drama. back to you. >> no drama, good thing. we'll be right back. an unruly passenger forced an

5:23 am
5:24 am
american airlines jet out of san jose to make an emergency . an unruly passenger forces an american airlines jet out of san jose to make an emergency landing in phoenix. one san jose man said the passenger would not listen to the flight crew making everyone on board nervous. the plane hadn't even taken off for dallas when roberts schultz say it is man next to him was drunk and rowdy, saying the man demanded drinks and would not stay in his seat. once they were in the air, the situation got worse. that's when schultz helped restrained the man. >> people were definitely
5:25 am
nervous. when he would go up and go to the bathroom, people around us were giving us looks, as if saying, i wonder what he's up to. i hope people are doing something about this kind of thing. >> after making the emergency landing in phoenix, the man was taken off the plane. you may recall just on sunday a southwest flight from los angeles to san francisco turned around for an emergency landing after a passenger reportedly choked the woman in front of him for reclining her seat. from weird things in the air to trying to get to the air weirdly. infamous airplane stow away is currently on trial in chicago for her latest attempt to board a plane without a ticket. hartman has been arrested so many times for sneaking onto planes all across the country that she's already spent two months behind bars for her past stowaway incidents. the evaluation could determine if she spends a full year in

5:32 am
would be severely ill from shigella. >> you don't generally see 12 people, a dozen people in an icu, even in some of the worst food-borne illness cases. >> reporter: the attorney also represented 16 families who got sick in a shigella outbreak back in 2000 in redwood city. in that case more than 100 people got sick and one person died from the bacteria. that redwood city restaurant, by the way, is shut down for good. shigella bacteria is very contagious. what we are seeing now as the number is approaching 80 and beyond is some of the folks who are now sick are secondary infections. that is, the person who got sick from eating at that restaurant friday and saturday night has passed it on. it's highly contagious. >> that's an important thing for people to know. thanks a lot, kris. at 5:32, drug concerns at a local high school has a principal taking action.
