5:16 am
the retail giant is telling produce suppliers to use a blockchain to track shipments tracking vegetables from the farm to the store revealing the source of any potential outbreak in seconds rather than in days. eventually in the future you could scan a bag and use the technology to find out where your lettuce came from. snapchat is testing a new camera feature to let users easily buy items from amazon. you scan a physical object or a bar code with that camera which brings up a card showing the item with its price and availability. when you tap on that you'll be sent to amazon's app or website to make the purchase. the feature is currently available to a small number of users in the united states but if it works they'll probably roll it out to the rest of us. marcus and laura, back to you. >> it's really interesting. >> a lot of people like that. >> i like your tie. click. >> and you can buy it. >> you buy it. >> buy me two more. >> thanks a lot. there say majnl is a major

silicon valley. the two co-founders of instagram are stepping down. no word on why they're leaving, but they say they plan to build something new. it is another setback for facebook, which has taken heat in the last two years for its handling of user data, not cracking down on the spread of fake news. it's now unclear who will run instagram. the company's c.o.o. also left earlier this month. if you ever wanted to own a piece of high-tech history, today is your day, but first you'll need a six-figure bank roll. fully functional apple 1 computer made by steve jobs and steve wozniak goes up for bid. there are only about 60 apple ones still there and really a lot of buzz about this morning's auction. many believe that it will sell for more than $300,000. it sold for $666 back in the m '70s when it was made. this one is for fashion lovers could stiletto heels, american

5:19 am
there, and it's going to be gusty at times. winds picking up to about 35 miles per hour. check out the seven-day forecast. it's already up at the bottom of the screen, as we look at our current temperatures, getting you out the door with what to expect. it's only 46 degrees in santa rosa, and it's 55 in oakland and in san jose. 50 degrees now in morgan hill. it's a cool start, and with it being a spare the air alert day we advise you to catch public tranceit to reduce the ozone emissions especially in the tri valley and the santa clara valley and as you head to the b.a.r.t. station in dublin, it will be only at 52 degrees. look at how quickly we warm up. 62 at 9:00, 82 at noon, so you know it's going to be a hot day when it heats up that fast. i wanted to show you a live look outside in san francisco, with these low clouds. we have them now but it will clear out fairly quickly. as you're styling your hair this morning, the coastal fog and the we should have a good hair day. i think once you hit it with the flat iron, you'll be good, and it will be a smooth hair day,
5:20 am
and it's going to be really dry especially for the inland areas. our temperatures reach up to 92 degrees in morgan hill, 82 degrees -- 87 degrees rather in cupertino and inland valleys and even hotter tomorrow. so we're just getting used to this right now our temperatures in the mission district reaching 73 and looking at santa rosa reaching 89 degrees today. we have some changes on the way. high pressure building and it's keeping us hot, but there will be a trough and an area of low pressure developing. that's going to give us more of an onshore flow, cooler temperatures and it causes the air to rise and also will bring in a chance of rain farther to the north, but this will also tap into the possibility of some tropical moisture way out in the western pacific that could move into the bay area early next week. so i'll be watching that and keeping tabs on our rain chances for monday into tuesday. as of right now, we're just
5:21 am
dealing with some extreme heat, highs reaching into the upper 90s tomorrow, and then coming down from that, it's going to be a nice cool weekend with highs in the upper 70s in the valleys and san francisco looking at some mid-60s. mike, you have a delay on transit to report? >> just one delay and it is for b.a.r.t. and this may have a ripple effect because this is in the oakland area, bay fair station is where there's a report we just got from b.a.r.t. regarding some sort of police activity. minor delay right now we'll track this. this could be a fare jumper to more, so we'll see what we can share with you as well. we're tracking that delay out of bay fare, the only system with any problems and not much of one right now. the roadways are an option for you. little build here for highway 4 over at bay point, typical. coming down through the rest of contra costa county a smooth drive. the caldecott at speed through the tunnel in both directions. the bay bridge starts to show the build now. the metering lights turning on any second and we have that build and the slowing for the incline. over here, a little slowing out
5:22 am
of the altamont as is typical as well and look, the rest of the bay shows a nice, easy drive. no problems for the south bay, the peninsula. highway 1 is closed for the one section around the bridge replacement, francisco or oceania are your options. looking at the south bay, northbound 10 is right there. southbound flashing lights not a concern, escorting a larger vehicle. so far the traffic looks standard there and 101 continues up the peninsula northbound with the headlights passing university. back to you. >> thanks a lot, mike. 5:22 right now. coming up it's a big premiere night with "this is us" kicking off its third season. we have a sneak peek coming up next. it's really bad, man. >> how would you rate the cleanliness of san francisco? how about a near perfect score? seriously, that's what one report found and it turns out you're footing the bill. i'm begat shaaban in san francisco. we investigate, next.

5:26 am
the streets. >> reporter: guys, good morning. san francisco averages 180 complaints per day about trash. 67 complaints about human feces, which is why you might think it's strange that someone would give the city a near perfect score when it comes to cleanliness but it turns out a public relations firm did just that, and you may have footed the bill. that's because the city actually paid the company for that research. public works department hired the firm so we sat down with the director to find out why. >> that data is being used to make decisions for the city around cleanliness of sidewalks in neighborhoods. know now, should jbr lose at this contract? >> it obviously sounds like there are concerns from various sectors in the city there are around the contract and i think we need to go and have that, you know, discussion. >> reporter: so what do you think about all this? we want to hear from you.

the squeeze on a lot of silicon valley companies that depend on the h1b visas to bring in talent to work here in the silicon valley. i want to show you what that proposed ban is. look at the proposal by the department of homeland security. this could be a ban on h4 employment authorization visas, which are now available to spouses of h1b visa holders and their children under the age of 21. there are about 125 people affected by this last year. homeland security cites unfair competition for u.s. jobs and a court filing wrote the ban could come within the next three months. now unlike h1b visas which tech skilled worker, there is no requirement regarding the education or where these folks can work under that h4eab visa and no cap on the number of visas that could be issued. if thousands can't earn their
5:34 am
income here it's hard to make a living in the silicon valley on just one income. according to one tech ceo those h1b workers are critical in silicon valley. >> h1b really helps us in terms ofl of resources. >> reporter: now there is supposed to be a public comment period not just for those visa holders but also for tech companies and their representatives to have their say, but this seems to be in motion. i'm going to try to find out what that public comment period is, and where it's going to happen and when it's going to happen and i'll let you know at 6:30 or i'll post it on social media, if it takes me a little bit longer to get to the bottom of this. in menlo park, countries sanchez, "today in the bay." >> 5:34 right now. new video of a car crash in the south bay, we spotted this an overturned car just off of 808 at first street in san jose. chp telling us someone got out
