quality, it is good to moderate, but it is worse errani somebody near the fire -- worse near yosemite. now, you look at the smoke forecasts, and the upper parts of the atmosphere you will see the smoke get pushed away, then returned back to the bay area. we are looking at an increase in the smoke. here is a view from yosemite. you see how thick the smoke is there. we are not expecting this, but a bit of haze. i will be back with a full look at the forecast. ama you can track wildfires burning right now in california by using our online interactive wildfire tracker. it shows current air quality in the same map. dan: let's move on. the reward for information leading to an arrest in the fatal shooting of an oakland ride-share driver has increased to $20,000. patrick fung was shot and killed near little saigon neighborhood two weeks ago while getting ready for work.

for those students in the black and brown communities. she has apologized, referring to her comments as a teachable moment. she will not be endorsed by the united educators of san francisco. when it comes to winning a seat on the school board, endorsements matter, especially if it comes from them, the teachers union. what you may not know is a few years ago, the teachers union created cope. which stands for committee on political education. it is the political arm of the union, what they say as many times followed by voters. in 2020, cope endorsed at jenny, mark sanchez, and matt alexander, all 41 that year and are still on the board. the pandemic brought more awareness of who now occupies the seats. >> coming out of the pandemic, with distance learning, more people in the city are paying more attention to our schools and the board of education, more so than any other time in history. reporter: out of the pandemic

the historical murals, the admissions controversy, keeping students at home, learning on zoom. everyone has something to say about those issues. that is when people here in san francisco started to pay attention. ama: make sense. thank you so much. dan: you at 6:00, 7 on your side michael finney joins us live about the new zelle money transfer app and how scammers are using it to steal your money. plus. >> i identify as someone with an invisible disability. i think it is accurate for how the world treats me. ama: in honor of july's disability pride month, here how this artist expands his life, her struggles and triumphs. >> the naacp demanding answers after a confederate flag was in after a confederate flag was in th oh ms. flores, what would we do without you? leader of many, and pet wrangler too. you report to your boss, every afternoon.
