hi, i'm sara donchey. breaking news tonight after lagging behind during the vote count. it looks like sheng thao will, in fact, be the next mayor of oakland. alameda county put out new numbers tonight. thao has taken the lead against loren taylor thanks to rank choice voting. now while she's mathematically the winner right now, thao says she will not be declaring victory tonight at least. her campaign did tell us though it's been a long week and a half. we've been humbled to watch the results shift in our favor with each passing day. we are optimistic that our lead will hold and sheng thao will be the next mayor of oakland.
and new tonight, we do have a definitive winner in the alameda county district attorney's race. price has defeated wiley. price tweeted out tonight, "we knew this election was going to be an exclamation history point." it's a legacy of appointed unchallenged district attorneys. now to elizabeth holmes, once the pride of silicon valley. now she's facing down 11 years in prison for defrauding investors. anne makovec joins us with more from her message the sentence is sending to other start-ups in the future. >> reporter: well sara, elizabeth holmes founded theranos at the age of 19 and then dropped out of stanford university. the technology would have diagnosed a wide range of conditions with just a few drops of blood. it was a story that was just too good to be true. >> reporter: elizabeth holmes stood in court red faced and teary davila
handed down her sentence. they have deep pain. and to each of them, i am so, so sorry. i gave everything i to save the company. and john kerry, the wall street investigative reporter who first exposed theranos isn't buying that apology. >> she didn't acknowledge any wrong doing or apologize to patients or investors. she let people down, but only in the sense the company failed. >> reporter: it was in january when holmes was convicted on three counts of wire fraud and conspiracy to commit wire fraud for misleading investors. prosecutors urged the court to hand down a 15-year sentence. holmes pushed for 18 months of house arrest. russell hancock, the president and ceo of joint ventures in silicon valley feels the stiff sentence sends a clear message. >> i see it as the criminal
justice system at work. >> reporter: hancock has worked with numerous businesses in silicon valley, but says he has never seen one quite like theranos. >> what's so striking to me about this case is its exceptionalism. i don't know of other cases like this one. for some reason, this company stands out. it didn't have the same level of scrutiny. there was somehow a charisma affect, a celebrity affect with his holmes herself. >> reporter: hancock doesn't expect them to set up shop in silicon valley ever again especially now as the economy is showing signs of a slowdown. >> venture capital has a high bar. you must have done all of that due diligence. you must have a proven customer base. there has to be a very clear path to revenue. >> well holmes' attorney are expected to file an appeal and ask for the judge for her to remain free during t■he process
she does have a daughter and currently pregnant. at this point she's ordered to report to prison in april. >> andria, thank you so much. on the other side of the same story, elizabeth holmes' former business partner and ex-boyfriend is awaiting his fate. expected to be sentenced for his 12th fraud conviction come december 7. okay, paul is here with a look at our weather. a reminder of why we don't live in buffalo, new york. >> you know, i got contacted earlier in my career in buffalo, new york saying do you want to come work for us? i said heck no. i already worked down in the great lakes, and i know what that experience is. they're getting an incredible amount of snow in buffalo. it has been just been aimed directly at buffalo. this is the scene from that neck of the woods. it's one of those things it is very intense. but then you go 20, 30 miles out of the
way and the snow is much lighter. it pivots around a little bit. the thing is that snow has been aimed directly towards the bay area. and orchard park, new york picked up 66 inches of snow out of this system. i want to put that in perspective. that's where the buffalo bills play. their quarterback is josh allen. he's a very large human being. he's 6' six feet tall. it is still snowing there. it will be the big national story as we head through the weekend. our through the weekend, all the way through thanksgiving, near normal temperatures. a few passing clouds on sunday. but temperatures will remain pleasant throughout the entire weekend. the winds are noticeable especially in north bay and east bay. higher elevations, those gusts around 20 to 35 miles an hour. same thing right now. but the winds
will gradually die down as we head towards tomorrow morning. after some gusty conditions for the first half of the day, the winds will be much lighter by tomorrow afternoon. but what we really need though is additional rain to mitigate the fire threat. we don't have any rain in the extended forecast. some good signs, wetter than normal weather shaping up. early end of thanksgiving as we finish off the month of november and head into december. we could use additional rainfall. looking towards downtown, the embarcadero center. temperatures have dipped down into the low to mid-50s. livermore dropping down to the upper 40s. inland, temperatures will level off in the mid to upper 30s by tomorrow morning. and then the high temperatures tomorrow will reach up into the mid-60s around the bay. mid to upper 60s in spots further inland and the warmest locations around 70 degrees. the 125th playing of the big game in berkeley tomorrow. kick off at 2:30. temperatures, perfect. 65 degrees at kickoff.
the game goes long enough though and the game will go into the post seven hours, which means temperatures will drop off pretty quickly. be prepared for that. temperatures will return slightly normal levels by monday, tuesday, wednesday. warming up as we head into the thanksgiving holiday. looking good for thursday and friday and the temperatures running close to 70. maybe even above 70 degrees for inland parts of the bay area as we head into thanksgiving afternoon with similar temperatures for the big shopping day on friday. >> okay, we love that forecast and we are both never taking a job in buffalo, new york. no chance. well not today any way. thanks, paul. after more than a decade of construction, the long awaited muni central subway in san francisco is finally set to start this weekend. a lot of people have been waiting for this. the city officials, even transportation secretary pete buttigieg has praised this project. saying it will connect vital parts of the city more easily than ever before. but it is coming in 20% over budget. with the final price tag
estimated around $2 billion. not to mention it is four years behind schedule. so it all comes out to about $2 billion a mile for this extension of the t line adding a total of four stations. starting at 4th and brannan, going north, and then to union square and ending in chinatown. so for tomorrow's limited service, the first train is set for about 8:00 a.m. it will be free for now until full service starts on january 7. the t-line will eventually connect chinatown to bayview hunters point. another day, another bit of drama in the elon musk saga in twitter. reports of 2,500 people left working for twitter right now after musk issued an ultimatum. the company in san francisco's headquarters will stay closed until monday as us manying tries to figure out who is left at the company. twitter is probably not at the brink of
collapse like some have assumed, but it could see some glitches. >> there is a lot of information in twitter, right? it knows where you're logging in from, it kns wher to. maybe you're doing private tweets. all these different things. if the hacker got access to them could be pretty uncomfortable. >> tonight musk put out a poll asking if you'ders wanted to reinstate president trump onto the platform. bringing the sights and sounds to the bay area with a twist. an inside look at the new cyber punk exhibit on display. sports coming up shortly. good things happen when the golden state warriors are at home. they were at home and good things happen. that's what

seen the show cheers? it's like that, except strip tease, you know. so that is like a naked cheers. >> reporter: it means the condor will get money, a lot more than the dollar bills thrown on the stage. actual help from the city including parking and being the adult entertainment venue on the list. >> to feel it's an evaluation for me and for carol webster and the people who go, kids some kids from north beach that were trying to make good. it felt like a validation for all those guys, not just us. >> reporter: joseph is by no means the first owner of the condor nor the last. he isn't even well known. as for stewart, he is hoping the
