the internet contribute to this problem? >> it was a huge contribution. >> experts say the collection, the privacy and convenience of the internet combined with the powerful chemicals that form in the brain from watching porn has created a whole new gin ration of addicts, people with no history of addiction before. >> we're seeing, again, millions of people that never would have had a problem back in the -- the magazine days. >> dr. e lain brady has opened the bay area's first treatment center dedicated to so-called internet adeks. along with porn it also includes online gaming and social media, which can be just as addictive. long-term porn addiction can cause problems in the bedroom. >> and they can't perform normally in relational sex because their brains are so conditioned to these really intense very specific images and sounds that they're used to seeing. >> as for danny, he's attending

own proposal to extend the debt ceiling for six weeks. the white house rejected it. >> we cannot have a situation where the debt ceiling is extended as part of a budge oat negotiation process for only six weeks, which would put us right back in the same position we're in now. >> talks between both houses of congress and the white house will continue through the weekend. danielle nottingham cbs news capitol hill. >> tomorrow will be the 12th day of the government shutdown, and we're six days away from the government running out of money to pay its bills. that could result in an unprecedented default. well, the government may be closed, but it's not going to stop lady liberty from welcoming her visitors. the statue of liberty will reopen to the public tomorrow. new york state will pay more than $61,000 a day to reopen the landmark. san diego will pay just over $15,000 a day to open mount rushmore for a 10-day period starting on monday. also tonight people on twitter are fired up against air canada after a mixup at sfo that

>> this is where larry was last seen a few blocks from the terminal. crews say instead of going to the bathroom, larry took off toward the employee parking and 101 freeway. >> we received one call. by the time we arrived, the dog was gone. it's a scary situation. >> what's worse than the case of a missing dog, air canada's response to this man in an e-mail about the american media accidentally sent to the american media. he wrote, "i think i would just ignore it. it's local news on a lost dog. their entire government is shut down and about to default, and this is how the u.s. media spends its time. for duncan white of british columbia who is about to give larry a new home, it's all a dog gone shame. >> i was totally shocked and very very upset. you look at their web siechlt they say they take great care in shipping animals and obviously
it's not true. >> what the airline hasn't said is how this happened, how the dog got away and why it was in that open area when they were warned he might try to run. leave at sfo bryan webb. >> today the air canada spokesperson behind that e-mail told toronto star newspaper, quote, i guess i'm the poster child now for be careful with your e-mail. we mailed him asking for an interview, but we did not get a response. elsewhere, a pilot flying a private jet was midair when he noticed something pretty important was missing, the door to the airplane. you think? the beach king airlines jet took off yesterday afternoon. wasn't long before the pilot noticed door was missing, and turned around see if he could find it. as for the 75-pound door, well, it literally dropped out of the sky and landed on the roof of a motel. nobody in the motel was injured. the ntsb will be investigating how the door fell off.
shelling out millions, what facebook's founder is buying up to protect his privacy. foster farms under the microscope for a salmonella outbreak, but you may want to check other brands of chicken, too. 's south san francisco location is pullin and weir starting out with some low clouds around the bay area tonight. we'll be greeted by low clouds tomorrow morning and then a ,,ttle bit of warming trend for
that may be contaminated with salmonella, this after the usda found foster farms responsible for distributing contaminated chicken that may have sickened as many as 300 people. foster farms isn't the only brand associated with the outbreak. we found other chicken on store shelves with the same lot number as the contaminated meat. be sure to check the eating right, o organics and value best brands, as well. mark suker burg went on shopping spree for houses. the facebook found you are brought four homes that surround his current five bedroom pad in palo alto's pricey crescent park neighborhood. as kpix 5 shows us, the billionaire isn't afraid to pay a premium for privacy. >> today was a pretty normal day in upscale suburbia on palo alto's edgewood drive. it was trash day. cindy walked dogs in the neighborhood. with one look at facebook founder mark zuckerberg's
estate, she knows he treasures privacy. >> it really does show. there's, like, a lot of bushes that cover the toorway and a big gate. >> it seems the multibillionaire is taking that to a new level. he recently spent about 30 million bucks buying up neighboring houses. he bought one for 14 million. that's half the size of his house for double the price. >> this is probably an a typical situation when it comes to real estate transaction. >> realtor james says this probably won't affect the crescent park's neighborhood home prices. he says the median palo alto home price is heading up already. it's a seller's market, and in this case it's true even if you're not looking to sell. >> if you're interested in a very particular piece of property that maybe isn't on the market then, you know, going up and knocking on somebody's door and saying, you know, what do you want for your property, that's very different than a seller that has a reason to sell. >> the mercury news reported zuckerberg heard a developer wanted to build a mansion and
marketed as being near the ceo. the paper also says the billionaire does not have plans to build a larger pad and the families he bought them from are still living there. >> they did a really good job keepg the wraps on everything. >> it's not uncommon for sellers to have nondisclosure agreements. that was evident when this former homeowner who told his house to zuckerberg told us he better keep quiet. what else would you expect when privacy is at a premium? the realtor added the median home price in this neighborhood is about 3 million bucks so it seems the sellers got a good deal, and they can stay in the homes for now. in palo alto, ryan qpix 5. people trying to ride cable cars in san francisco today were out of luck when the hide street line had to be shut down. the cable cars themselves were being pulled by tow truks this afternoon after a mechanical problem forced the closure. char trolley cars were down for about three hours. that would be cable cars.
it was enough to disappoint eager tourists. >> the trolley experience is what we came here for. we rhode one down and wanted to ride another one up. >> they're cable cars. some people had to resort to riding buses or just walking the steep hills. an offshore earthquake jolted parts of northern california today. the magnitude 4.9 quake struck just after 4:00 this afternoon. the epicenter was off the coast about 32 miles northwest of eureka. we talked to the editor of the tribune who said people reported items falling off their shelves, but there was no serious damage or injury. it's feeling more like fall outside these days, but changes are coming. >> here's bryan hackney in for paul with our forecast. bryan. >> well, we got a little bit of warming trend on track for the bay area. tomorrow we'll have highs in the mid 70s. i promise there's a bit of a bite in the air today. we'll start out pretty much the
same as we did today with low clouds, but by the afternoon we'll be near 70 degrees right around the bay. here's what's happening that low pressure that plagued the southland and the desert southwest and us a little bit has moved completely out of the state. high pressure begins to build in until we get a warming weekend. a warming weekend doesn't mean it's going to be warm everywhere. the numbers will be a little bit better than we had them today. the high pressure builds in. we get northwesterly winds. that's drying direction. we'll still have a few low clouds along the shore line. we've got temperatures sinking into the 40s in the coolest locations. it'll warm up a little bit tomorrow, near 80 greece inland by monday. we'll look at mid 70s at sacramento. 80 degrees fresno, 63 down at monterey. if you're heading out of the bay area weal be looking at sunny skies and westerly 25 miles an hour. los angeles southland looks good but chicago has got thunderstorms. back in the bay area tonight, santa rosa 46. san francisco 64.
