brain cancer. fire chief jim miguel says it's been a wake-up call. >> he was a friend to call, a beautiful young family. the organization has had a hard time with this. >> miguel says new preventative practices like air monitoring after a fire is out have made a big difference. >> it's not just about the fire being out now. it's about the products of combustion being eliminated before we take off our masks and breathe. >> his firefighters now wash equipment and gear after every fire, and when an engine gears up to leave the fire house, cancer-causing diesel fumes are exhausted through a hose. for now, though, it's all about captain. >> we carry him through livermore. there were probably 40 to 50 emergency vehicles in the procession. we had 2,000 people along the procession route that were there with american flags. it certainly brought us together as a family. >> now, the cancer study is in the second phase. researchers are gathering employment records from three fire departments to piece

and effective. tuesday, wednesday, thursday and then black friday, but tonight sharon chin tells us watch out if you shop online. what you don't know about google searches that can cost you a lot. >> if you do a google search for a product, the top results are showcased in a special panel. it is not inside the yellow advertisement box, but the panel is an ad since companies paid google to get the top spot. >> it's a marketing tool. >> online shopper sarah also didn't know buying showcased panel items can cost you more. matthew ong, senior retail on list with finance web site nerdwallet.com. >> i would say not to trust those product panel imajs. they're not necessarily the lowest price. >> in fact, if you bought google's panel products instead of digging deeper into your search results for a cheaper price, you would pay an average 34% more for five out of six items, for example, that would
cost 128% more for a plantronics blue tooth headset, 54% more for a brand of oakley brand women's pole arized sunglasses and 27% more for a canon power shot digital camera. instead of relying on the google panels, ong says shoppers could find the same items for less just clicking on google's shopping. google says price isn't the only factor when deciding what the showcase. it also considers things like free shipping and retailer preferences. >> amazon also gives merchants preference based on an item's price and availability, but unlike google, they toent require companies to pay for it. by the way, google reached a tentative anti-trust settlement in europe over similar issues. >> really interesting. keep clicking in different spots, huh? >> keep digging. paul, a lot of people coming
