sauces live in oakland with a breakdown of what the companies think the governor can do, zachy it all comes down to the tax framework for legalized cannabis products taxes that are making those products so expensive. it's crippling sales. but it is an emergency. david goldman, who sits on the board of the san francisco dispensary green cross , adding his name to the hundreds of signatures already supporting this letter to governor, gavin newsom meant leaders in the state legislature posted to change .org the document stating, quote we need you to understand that we have been pushed to a breaking point . it's not just our dispensary. it's every dispensary. is facing this exact problem a problem, goldman and industry leaders behind the letter say, is directly tied to how the industry is being regulated and taxed in the state, leaving those playing by the rules unable to compete with prices being offered by the illegal underground market if we don't

around the world are scrambling to close a gap in software used by nearly every computer around the world amidst frantic warnings from top national security cyber officials who fear a cyber armageddon. if companies don't act fast to patch the problem, an employee at the chinese tech company alibaba discovered the vulnerability that would allow anyone to use log four j. a widely used software tool to remotely hack into any computer in the world and take over the entire server. the log four j vulnerability. it's the most serious vulnerability that i have seen. in my decades long career, everyone should assume that they are exposed and vulnerable and to check and make sure that they're not vulnerable . the nsa u. s cyber command and cisa are taking urgent action to detect threat activity. since the vulnerability was discovered late last week. cyber experts
say the us is already under attack checkpoint software reported 800,000 attempted attacks in 72 hours, a pandemic like spread about 100 hacks on the nation's computers and infrastructure every minute as bad actors like china, russia and iran. try to exploit the vulnerability, which some experts say could give them the ability to shut down the internet and critical u s infrastructure. i think everybody wants to tell you there's going to be like a cyber pearl harbor. that's not how this works. what's going to happen is they want to believe us out through cuts? they don't want to have some sort of cyber 9 11 to unify us. rather they want to do lots of small things . this former navy cybersecurity expert compares the latest vulnerability to finding out the salt in your house is poisoned. then you realize you have salt in almost every product in your kitchen. not just the salt shaker fox news has learned. the israelis have already reported that iranian hackers tried to exploit the log four j vulnerability. to get into its

they do all sorts of things. so it's kind of hard to really pinpoint exactly the amount of rain will see the exact timing. so we're just going to go day by day, and tomorrow is a day like today. we'll see valley fog. when you wake up, you'll see cool daytime highs. obviously cool overnight lows, too. but cool daytime highs like today we had mid mid number forty's and some of the cool spots because of the valley fog. tomorrow will be slightly warmer. tomorrow we'll see low fifties where there were upper forties. we're going to see a little clearing as that low that pinwheel gets closer to the coast and that releases the inversion. so one day eight inches over the course of weekend. yeah, i guess i think we could see last we could see more just depends without that. what comes around the horn here so each day we'll take a look at the systems as they come. in up over by the gulf and then back down into this, and as they do, they'll kind of form and they'll make more sense. the models get a better handle on i'm okay. this is what we got. but suffice to say we're not looking at an atmospheric river. we're looking at more. typical funnel systems and kind of extra
tropical winter or early winter storms. current temperatures and i guess the point where i was trying to make there is so i don't we're not anticipating a foot of rain in any one of these dumps were expecting half inch an inch and a half and then the next one comes through. he's a half inch. next one comes through these a quarter inch. next one come through these a half inch something like that, so it's going to be variable. precipitation forecast overnight lows and there's all that fog. it was cold man, if you're in the central valley today, it's going to go that way again. so these are the dew point right over here. those are the temperatures senators is 44 dew point 41. right at least three degrees and you get fog. four degrees here and you get to that dew point temperature. get fog. i'm just doing that to show you that. yes. fog is back in the equation for this evening. here's the model. there is. tomorrow morning. nearest tomorrow night. that's your day. here comes the rain tuesday morning. tuesday afternoon. wednesday morning. right it's going now wednesday afternoon, and that's going to that's going to change around a little bit
