and i'm frank mallicoa good morning. it is friday, april 8. take a look at this shot. this is from our photographer joseph cousins from treasure island. a beautiful shot of the san francisco skyline. >> it's beautiful. what a view. good morning, i'm michelle griego. >> hi, everyone. i'm frank mallicoat. time now is 5:00 on your friday. and new this morning, after a long struggle for a comeback, yahoo may be up for grabs at last. some of the biggest names in tech are reportedly placing their bids, as well. kpix 5's kiet do is live outside yahoo's sunnyvale headquarters on who is ready to buy. get in line, i guess, right, kiet? >> reporter: topping the list of potential buyers is verizon. verizon has reportedly hired several banks which means they are serious about this. now, according to a report by
recode, a leak shows the revenue forecast falling by 15% to $3.5 billion with earnings falling by 20% this year. now, verizon is said to value yahoo's core business at $8 billion. the financial situation at yahoo is dire. now, ceo marissa mayer's efforts to reboot the company into a content provider by launching a video web service portal fell flat and stock was down 20% this year. if the acquisition by verizon goes through, verizon would replace mayer with top executives from aol. and if mayer is ousted, she could end up with a severance package worth $110 million. google was reportedly also interested but only mainly as a way to gobble up the audience and block out any rivals. after all this reporting about yahoo's potential sale, the stock police fell by .49, dropping 1.34% and ending the day at 36.17. first round bids for yahoo ar
due on monday. we'll learn how csa officials and unions reached a deal. they will announce the terms of the salary agreement. the pay increase they settled on will affect 26,000 professors, coaches and other staff across 23 different csu campuses. initially the union pushed for 5% increase the university willing to give 2%. book retailer barnes & noble will lay off nearly 100 workers as it hands off management of its nook electronic reader to a contractor that would allow barnes & noble to close a santa clara office where 80 people will now lose their jobs. the rest of the job cuts will be in taiwan. the company says it's still committed to the nook node despite falling sales. it's a fact that if you are going to live in san francisco, it's going to cost you. and many residents are racking in cash through temporary sites
like airbnb. the city wants to regulate that. jackie ward is live in san francisco with more reporter: we're in pacific heights, a neighborhood that has a lot of airbnb rentals listed on the website. but we don't know obviously which properties are registered with the city after a report discussed by the board of supervisors last night, it may be safe to say that a lot of these properties may not be registered. so of course, if you want to rent any part of your home, people know that they have to let the city know. it's a law that's been in effect for two years now. but here's the problem. just last month, airbnb says it had over 7,000 unique hosts in san francisco. the city has received a little more than 1600 registration applications. the proposition would have required airbnb to crack down on unregistered rentals but it was rejected by san francisco voters in november after the company launched an $8 million ad campaign. >> we tried to deal with the
proposition is give airbnb and other companies some skin in the game. we say to them, if you list a unit that isn't registered or that is illegal, you can be fined. >> reporter: supervisor david campos is vocal about finding a remedy. he said this report makes it clear that businesses like airbnb can't self-regulate and that the law needs to be amended. both the city and airbnb have agreed that they are really trying to help out the middle class renters. those who rent their properties about 48 days out of the year. in pacific heights, jackie ward, kpix 5. the beverage association and the california retailers association are taking on the city of san francisco. they are challenging the city's proposal to have warning labels on all the sugary drinks. the labels warning the sodas in sugary drinks increase risk of obesity, diabetes and tooth decay. the association and beverage companies say they are being unfairly singled out and that the labels are misleading. all right. let's get a check on weather

more than 7,000 properties were listed as unique hosts as of last march. so this lack of regulation is exactly what prop f supporters wanted to correct. last fall before the election david chiu said the current short-term rental law was enough regulation. >> to allow this to go into effect, the measure that was in front of voters today prop f was frankly just too extreme. >> reporter: another problem this report says, since february 2015 just over a quarter of unhosted entire home listings appear to have been rented for more than 90 days. that's a violation of city law. so now, the board of supervisors will attempt to modify the current law in place but details on that are being kept quiet. in pacific heights, jackie ward, kpix 5. >> how does airbnb feel about this new report? >> reporter: actually, just last week, they have already come out and said that they too want to crack down on this sort of thing. they want to remove the people who have multiple listings and who are renting for longer than
