today, you can still come up and spend some laps out on the hill. but at 80 gets packed starting early afternoon hours from the bay area. let's talk about you know, we got some decent rain on this past sunday and monday here in the bay area. what did it do for you up in the sierra when it comes to new snow? we did get a little bit of snow here and boreal and i know that it did go a little bit further south as well. so some of the further southern resorts definitely got a little bit more than us, but we are not done yet. we're hoping to april 17th this year, and we will be spinning everything all the way until that date. okay so almost three more full weeks. then you know, as i look at what's happening behind you to me this is my perfect ski day because i know like serious skiers and boarders want to get there and get that fresh powder. but when our boys were really little, they learned to ski over at soda springs. and i wanted sunshine i wanted, you know comfortable temperatures. it really didn't matter. at that point with the snow was like, are you seeing a lot of beginner families heading up on days like today? oh yeah, absolutely. these are prime learning
conditions and we give some of the best lessons here. boreal we've got some great beginner terrain, a wonderful chairlift that services that terrain, even the magic carpet over there and like you said, our sister resort around the corner soda springs. that's another great place to do all things winter. i mean, they've got tubing. they've got snowman land. they've even got stuck chewing available, so even if you don't want strap on some skis, there's some great opportunity to get up. and get this end of the winter into your books. have you guys had boreal started looking back on the season yet because i know we talked earlier about the fact that you know there's no more masking, you know, a lot of things are back to normal. now. has this been the booming season? you'd hope for? i imagine there was a lot of pent up demand. oh yeah, absolutely. i mean, people have been itching to get up here and we did drop the mask mandate with the guidelines that have been put forward with the california and our county guidelines and being able to open up we've seen people coming up all the time, and it's really wonderful because i mean, even though we
haven't seen those big winter storms that come through in march, the roads have been open. which means it's easy to get up here. you can fly on up the hill and you can get on the lift and just a couple minutes from our parking lot, so it's really cool to see families coming back. getting the whole family out there grabbing their rentals, and the rental shop joined some hot cocoa on colder days and nice beverage during the warmer days up here, and it's really amazing to see the flocking of people coming back to the mountain. are there any housekeeping things for people? maybe who haven't gone up? yet? for the past couple of years, they still have to buy their tickets in advance, right? that is correct. and that's the easiest way you buy your tickets at ride boreal dot com and you can walk up with your barcode. you just scan the barcode pops it out for you and you're out on the slopes. okay i love your enthusiasm. and the pretty picture behind you will tucker north of boreal mountain ski resort. thank you for joining us have a great next week is spring break. i'm sure you'll see a lot of barrier families up there. thank you. of course, tucker. excited man. looks good. good.

issue is going to be when we start going back indoors and fall. i think in in summer, we can be outside, right. see that for the summer season, october november, when it starts getting too cold to dine outside, and you worried. i don't know. not really. i think by then we'll know more. but some are you know , outside is sitting outside at faction out of here in alameda. let's go get it. love it. let's go, 11, all right. the cdc is warning of a rising mental health crisis as we switch to a more serious topic on this crisis is among high school students. the new data comes as health officials warn of another spike in covid cases. jonathan siri has the latest from atlanta. as the pandemic drags on, younger americans could be facing a growing mental health crisis. a new survey published by the cdc finds in 2021 more than a third of high school students said their mental health suffered during the pandemic. about 44% said. they feel persistently sad or hopeless. the agency attributed the high numbers a time of
isolation, economic turmoil and grief.king to address the crisis. we've invested $5.5 billion in programs that support mental health and well being, including tens of millions for programs that specifically address youth mental health. public health officials say concerns about mental health were present even before the pandemic. in december, surgeon general vivek murthy issued an advisory calling for swift action to respond to the growing crisis. we've been working already from the launch of our advisory with community partners with parent groups with other community organizations, cleaning faith organizations. the data come as medical experts warn of another covid surge within the next few weeks, according to the cdc. the um macron sub variant b a two now accounts for about 55% of covid infections in the us but health experts say they do not expect another spike to be as severe as previous surges. it certainly
doesn't look like it's going to be anything on the order of what we've seen with prior spikes, the cdc says. masks testing and vaccinations remain the best way to protect yourself against new variants in atlanta, jonathan serrie ktvu fox two news. thousands of californians struggling to pay their rent and facing possible eviction now have three more months to get help. just hours before california's eviction moratorium was due to expire. the bill was signed into law granting an extension through june. the new law provides tenant protections for people who apply to the states rent relief program by midnight last night, and those still waiting for an answer. thousands continue to wait for relief while their applications are pending. it would be cruel, wasteful and unfair to subject californians to eviction the loss of rental income now when they've done everything, asked of them by filing and completing their application. ted it's rights groups want the state to extend the deadline for struggling renters to apply for assistance. and with the bill
signing, lieutenant governor lenny kamala harris made history she is the first woman to ever signed a bill into law in the entirety of california's 171 year history. governor newsom is out of the country on vacation. this means the lieutenant governor is in charge until his return. she spoke with our sister station in los angeles about this history making moment. well i can't help it feeling the weight of history. certainly generations of women all the way back to native american women pioneers and the many women who have served in the legislature people have been involved in making history in our state and the governance of our state of it. never before has a woman's signed a bill into law. and so i felt a little bit of the weight of history, but i felt the presencestory there with me today. yesterday also the last day of women's history month near this morning, the latest monthly jobs report shows that the american economy is recovering from the pandemic . the latest numbers from the labor department showed that 431,000 jobs were added in march. that is a drop from 678,000 jobs added in february.
even so, the u. s economy has added more than 400,000 jobs every month now for nearly a year. economists also intrigued by near record numbers of people quitting their job and what's being called. great resignation . another labor department report earlier this week shows that 4.4 million people quit their jobs in february. but how long will the job market's day? advantageous to workers. joining us now is daniel zhao is senior economist at glassdoor. what's going on, daniel? thanks for being with us. thanks for having me. of course. well, you heard me. say it 431,000 jobs at it. i will say that the unemployment rate also dipped down to 3.6% what's your read on those new numbers? i think those numbers indicate that the labor market has red hot. we're seeing very healthy job gains down a little bit from the previous month, but still very healthy and on top of that, that unemployment rate 3.6% is just 0.1% points above the pre pandemic level of 3.5% which was also a 50 or low.
that's the lowest since 1969. so of course if we can hit that benchmark again that really indicates there are that our job market is very healthy going the right direction. i get that employees alright, should say employers are hiring, but at the same time i also talked about this great resignation right millions quitting their jobs. in february. what's the effect of this moving forward? daniel? specifically i mean, i guess you could say for both the employee and for companies well, the effect comes from the cause in this case, so we really what we believe is that much of this great resignation is actually being driven by the increasing demand for workers, the increasing competition that employers are facing and thus the increasing wages that they're offering. because of how many job openings there are available today. that means that workers have more power than have more negotiating leverage to let them find a better opportunity. that is a better fit for them. whether that means better wages, better benefits, or just simply a better fit was going to say. is this a larger
opportunity for four wage gains? yes i think that that's part of the reason why we're seeing wage growth up over 5% right now. of course, that's not quite enought certainly is much higher than what we were saying before the pandemic. i mean, what if there's an influx of new workers ? let's say later this year in the third quarter, maybe the fourth quarter even maybe 2023 with this drastically reversed the wage gain opportunity or the trajectory. well, i would say that if we do have more workers continuing to enter the labor force that might slow down, reach growth a little bit might tamp it down. but fundamentally because demand for workers is so high. i do expect that wage growth will continue to remain strong for much of the year. that being said. that's not a guarantee, right? and so my advice for workers, generally speaking is that now is a good time to ask for a raise or even to look for a new job. and if there's no better time to strike the iron because it's hot right now. are there a lot of employees out there when they
are looking for work, who are saying to themselves and saying to the potential company that they're applying to? i want to work from home like that. that means more to me than maybe even the rays. absolutely we've seen that interest in remote work on glassdoor from jobseekers themselves has increased 360% over the course of the first year and a half of the pandemic , and that's really something that is reflected in what employees are telling employers . that's something that we've seen over the course of pandemic because employees know that employers have figured out these processes. they know that they can offer it and employers understand that they have to actually meet employees in the middle and meet jobseekers demands in the middle because of how tight the labor market is right now. i want to ask you something about burnout here. we reported earlier this morning about a new study that said people who are not quitting right that they're just burned out because you know there is a lack of labor shortage right now. ah and they're working more may be doing more in the office.
what do employers need to do to eliminate this this burnout and really flip it around here, you know, other than again talking about racist. well i would say that raises generally aren't necessarily the solution to burnout because for many people there in situations where they are doing the jobs of multiple people, because they might have had a coworker leave, and now they're doing the jobs of that person as well and so sure it would feel great to be compensated for doing two jobs at once. but at the same time that doesn't actually address the problem, which is that you have too much work to do. and so what employers are trying to do is to hire more people, which, of course, is very challenging right now. but also they can think about how to restructure the work that actually needs to be done to make workers more productive and help them get that work under control so that people don't feel like they're overwhelmed. daniel jiao, senior economist with glass door, daniel. appreciate your time. have a great weekend coming up here. thanks. all right. well in case you missed it last night.
so was sports director market bonuses last time that he signed off i couldn't ask for more dreamlike career. we take a look back at his incredible career in various sports and san francisco restaurant week kicks off today, the chef from one of the city's most popular peruvian restaurants joins us right here. live in studio. stay with us.
lamar and had anita as well as thomas medal, the director of operations for those restaurants , and you're also general manager of lamar welcome, san francisco restaurant week. i'm glad it's here. and i'm glad that people can step inside and not worry so much. yes and we are very excited that that that that program continues with the city, right, so it's been always a really, really good week for us, and i think for every restaurant in the bay area, it's you know, it's kind of like this reminder to everybody that we're still here. we have special ideas for that week, right? we have a beautiful three course menu and both of the restaurants for lunch and dinner. so it's really, really nice to have people come back and check those out now, victoriano oh, i know that you're going to be preparing some ceviche for us. the first time i had ceviche, i went to el salvador. i had never had it before, and it changed my life. right so ceviches, just basically fish that's cooked in acid. yes. so is a 31 ingredient is very, very, very fresh, which
, in this case we use here that we use it to hollywood, local hollywood. okay, so you can use other vision problems, so is fish. lime years. okay so onion , onion and. habanero okay. jalapeno in peru were using the , um alima. okay and also we have the recorder that this is the we were frozen and we try that. okay okay, so i want you to do your thing and cut it up and played it for us. and i'm going to ask you a few more questions thomas about the restaurants in general, not you're just you're restaurants but also the restaurants in san francisco and everywhere. whatever they had to do to get people back. i think you know, like i mean, it was different stages during during this pandemic, but we had to first initial lockdown where you really had everybody was pivoting and trying to take out and reinventing themselves so that it better and then i think you've got to the stage where it was really important that you got your message across right,
so strong social media presence and reconnecting with the local communities such as say right because they're like tourism died completely away. there was no more convention business, especially like the restaurants. but we had and in downtown areas, it was really important. to the reconnect with the locals and really saw what do we have? what can we offer? and then i think that the neighborhood restaurant state they just needed to build my loyalty right? so it was kind of like a mixed approach. what we saw in those restaurants. you find that people when they come back are very grateful to have you there. ah yes, i think so. and i think it really showed us on during those initial months. when we were really locked down, you could see that people were calling people will supporting us. let's take out orders and that stuff, so i think i think, you know, like, especially with llama. this restaurant has been around now for almost 14 years, right? so we have we have a good following in the city and i think it really shows with everybody that that we can survive that way. so do you. i know that you are the general
manager. but you eat here to ryan. what do you think about this particular dishes making? uh you know, it's you know, it was funny. like last week, i took a week off and i spent some time with the family. and by friday, i was like, oh, my god, i'm craving ceviches so much again, so i need to go back to lama and have some. it's one of my favorite dish. it is so simple. yet so complex right at the structures. what you get from a test field. you have to asset you have a little bit of spiciness from the have a narrow you have to refreshing stuff from the from the from the less genetically what has made with ginger to, um, so it's just a really, really complex it and then when you look at the ingredients must go. also visit right chocolate and the country what is fried and boiled corn and sweet potatoes on you get all these amazing flavors out of the states. what is trust? it never gets old. victoriano you serve this at both restaurants are just at lamar, both restaurants. okay because i've been too hard to before. and i really like the rotisserie
chicken, which is a delicacy or , you know staple of that restaurant. lamar is a little different. so you have similar items on both menus. but they're different. yes, i mean, llamas are very seafood. driven concept right and had anita. we really showcase our custom rotisserie gretel. what we have is the track horse labors. it really brings out different different dimensions. when you grill on that thing, right, so this is really hard. anita's is but yes, we have some crossovers with us of each day and colors us. and, yes, all right. so how anita is in the marina district, and lamar is on the embarcadero. right next. okay oh, okay. so here we are. we're just about to go away. better go. you're pleading it for us. we're going to taste it. at least i hope we're going to taste it before we go to commercial break. etc. okay, chef, will you. can be one of those sure it is not
important, she says. not ready yet, but they didn't already second to dust. like this. ah! this little chocolate, okay, so garnish. and there we go. oh, my goodness. this is simple. okay? and if you want a more spicy, we can have a o or or the other papers. it is that classic peruvian dish. and so we just as beautiful look at this. look at this. cameraman's mouth is wandering over there. thank you, robert. we would like to try. it smells i would. i would like to try tonight. i'm going to eat on television because two years ago before the pandemic i used to do this and now i'm going to do it again. perfect and dry. i'm coming to your restaurant, the weekend sell. thank by the way, the two of you. thank you for joining us. mike and garcia. thank you for having us over here for you. okay, we'll be
right there. we'll be there in like you seven minutes. beautiful what a beautiful table. all right, let's talk a little hoops here because we know happening today. stanford's hoping to advance to the to women's basketball finals. stanford's taken on the university of connecticut 6 30 pacific time tip off in the women's final four. in minneapolis, both schools, longtime rivals here and perennial powerhouses when it comes to college basketball, they have a combined 14 national championships. stanford, though looking to win back to back titles, just having an extra year with the same group of girls and then the additions that we made, i think we have more of an even cohesive unit this year than we did last year. and so that adds to our want to continue to stay together as long as we can. stanford is 13 women's national titles, and if they beat uconn tonight, they're going to play in the championship game against the winner of the other semifinal between south carolina and louisville. good luck to the cardinal. absolutely right, mike . you and i were so lucky to be able to grow up here in the bay

presence and everything that that you've meant to my career. it's been my life here at ktvu, and i can't thank you enough and to the viewers, you know, i think i summed it up. but just thanks for putting up with me and thanks for being patient because i've said it before i was in way over my head when i started here and i appreciate it, and i feel like i grew into the job. now for the 49ers dynasty in the eighties to the giants and a swirled series wins and the warriors championship. ron mark is really i guess you could say covered it all here in bay area sports. well he has made plenty of long lasting relationships along the way to joe fonzi takes a look back. the same year, the 49ers drafted a quarterback by the name of montana ktvu television, dipped into the sacramento market and hired a youngster that the bay area watched practice his passion for 43 years. how's it going, everybody? how's it going , everybody? i've been going, everybody, how's it going? everybody going, everybody,
how's it going, everybody when your career spans parts of six decades in a major market, you can expect to rub elbows with some high profile personalities. and experienced some changes in attitudes, fashion and grooming styles. marks 43 years of covering bay area sports wasn't confined to north america. in his 49 are travels. he's been to london once the media question let up a little bit. there was some work to be done on the field and the tokyo he's been known to brave cold weather. 49ers come to chicago conquer the cold vaporized. the bears enjoy that indian summer back in california because here in boston, they're not only getting ready for game one of the playoffs. they're also getting ready for winter. but before you start to think it was all about that gritty correspondent defying the elements consider some of mark's other assignments. who wants to talk to sweaty baseball players when you could spend a little time with miss usa, why are you for
the dodgers? as i was saying before? i really think the underdog, you know, they said, they're the underdog and going into miss usa. i was the underdog. and what would a southern california world series assignment b? without a stop on rodeo drive in beverly hills. there must be some baseball experts there. i don't know anything about sport too much into myself from miami. i'm marky baniyas for the 10 o'clock news. that good. all right. they had to buy that, huh? alright julie haener baby area was buying it for 43 years. that means you watch athletes come up , retire and make the hall of fame. and you watch the same kind of evolution with your co workers while you're still working on your look from berkeley. i'm mark cuban is for ktvu. channel two news and your sign off that sports clyde. thank you, mark, but that is boxing, sometimes on that sports during mark's tenure in the bay
area, he's covered seven super bowls. seven world series five nba championships. anna stanley cup finals. he was there for everything from the catch to january's nfc title game in los angeles. he saw the raiders moved to l. a back to oakland. go to a super bowl and then move again to las vegas. he saw billy ball, the bash brothers and an earthquake world series. he covered three championships and three parades for both the giants and the warriors and that sign off. the people around him changed. but if you were a ktvu viewer, you knew it was time to turn in. when you heard that's for sporting line, that is the sporting life that is the sporting life for a tuesday night cool, that's the sporting life to get personal. there's another veteran ktvu sportscaster who's grateful for a 27 year partnership. and we'll miss the person who understands the kind of trivia music and
sports moments unique to baby boomers. you know, giant fans a little spoiled. oh man, we just got blasted, directed from the siegels. thank you very much. a little more than two years ago, the covid pandemic changed everything for bay area viewers it met. we got to see something that rivals sports as one of mark's life. passions from steely dan to stealers wheel. we got a daily dose of the average changing vinyl room how they got everybody. marquee body is coming to you from the vinyl room tonight. quirky. bonnie is back with you in the final room tonight. marquee body is with you from the vinyl room tonight. back in 1967. my mom waited two hours in line. that little record store in downtown standard fell to get me that, but i love all music. he and al exports to mark, continuing to tell the stories
of all the great bay area news and sports history, you always a part of that so congratulations. enjoy the next chapter. your dear friend. i've always admired your class.dignity and your grace. the unique ability. to respect boundaries and get the job done. market bonnie is my partner. how you doing, man? congratulations on retirement 43 years now, nowhere this time is gone, but people are gonna miss you. i miss you. you'll always be my partner. ktvu is going to miss you. so you have a great life. take care of the take care of the family. and we all love you, mark. you've been a great friend. you've been an inspiration and it's been great playing tennis with you have a beautiful, prosperous and happy retirement. mark. i can't tell you how much i enjoyed and revered working with you for the last 140. oh, no, just 43 years.
it's wonderful working with you really miss you. i just can't explain to you how important you are to me and my wife. and our future. good luck, buddy. mark will now have more time to add to his final room collection and enjoy his grandkids. i know that he has a place as one of the most iconic sportscasters in bay area history. don't tell anybody. i don't wear a whole suit. you were real pants last night. you know, sometimes it's shorts. i think mark's watching because i just kind of woke him up. he probably had a big banner light. so there was a time when someone confused me for mark. your market bunions and i like marks so much i said, yes, i am . you betcha where the giants going to do, and i just made stuff up. so mark, sorry, but with someone confuses you with me, it's a compliment to me and
i just roll with it, buddy. yeah i know. mark told me that you know, he's referred himself as a sports fanatic from when he was very, very young. he said that his mother didn't know anything about sports didn't care about sports until her little boy got into it. and he said, that's the only reason my mother's into sports, and now i find myself in that same situation. so i think mark for opening my eyes to the fact that sports is family sports, his passion. i didn't grow up in sports household. but man, he just the stories that he was able to tell and share. for 40, plus years got me they're brilliant. so i can think of your brilliant career and a and a great friend and love the conversations and the laughter in the newsroom more than anything, especially when i was working nights. um and like, mark said, you know his first giants game, you know, candlestick park sixth grade. i was in sixth grade from my first giants game after my oldest sister heidi got married and i know exactly where you were talking about in the in the light shines, so i've been a sports fan ever since then. i loved watching you love working with you go enjoy this next. bet
you he hates it. when people say this mark. i grew up watching you, buddy. i surely appreciate class act for watching everybody. i'll see you back here at noon. ♪ ♪ ♪ feel, feel, feel it ♪ [cheers and applause] >> announcer: live from new york city, it's "the wendy williams show!" ♪ ♪ ♪ oh, yeah ♪ ♪ feel, feel, feel it ♪ ♪ feel, feel it, it, feel it ♪ ♪ tell me how you're feeling ♪ ♪ when we're feeling how we're feeling ♪ ♪ and we're feeling what we're feeling ♪ ♪ here we go ♪ ♪ feel it, and feel it ♪ ♪ and feel it like this ♪ ♪ how you doin', wendy? ♪ ♪ let's go ♪ >> announcer: now, here's >> carson kressley and vivica a. fox. >> audience: whoop, whoop! whoop, whoop! whoop, whoop! whoop, whoop! whoop, whoop! whoop, whoop! >> carson: i love it i love
