>> a couple weeks ago, it was less than one percent. so it's increasing. he says in some other countries it's become the dominant strain. >> and that's because experts believe it's more contagious. then its parent variant omicron also known as ba one. i think there's a scientific consensus now that is somewhere between 30 and 50%. >> more transmissible. then one doctor swartzberg says there's new studies coming out about the subvariant all the time. >> and one came out wednesday saying you can also be more severe, suggested ba 2 might be able to evade immunity. we have from vaccines or previous infection. >> better than omicron. that same group had some evidence to suggest perhaps it might make them sicker than omicron debts. more like delta. he believes local leaders may have removed masking requirements in shared spaces. >> too soon i would.

for black americans to read and write these institutions were the first to do it on a large scale. there was this. >> period. call segregation where african-americans were not allowed access into mainstream majority institutions p predominately white institutions. so that's how these institutions were found. hbc use came to be in several ways. some the federal government established some white religious leaders or segregationists started. but livingstone. >> was a product of african-american ministers members, an ame zion church, descendants of freed slaves gave birth to this on the idea. >> starting the school think about that were found in 18, 79. so that shortly after. the emancipation proclamation is shortly after juneteenth and they have a sneaky suspicion. the education would be the true emancipate or in that document. the president lincoln signed before was livingstone. it was i in
wesley institute in concord. the school was moved to salisbury on a plot of land that was once a slave plantation. a common story for hbcu campuses. so the land that we walk on every and that was cultivated. >> by ancestors, an institution, livingstone with the site of the first black collegiate football game, december 18. 92 on the school's front line. they didn't have a football. so the pool their resources to buy the football didn't have uniforms. the uniforms were made by. industrial department on campus. he took the shoes, the dress, shoes roll and males are nails through the soles of your shoes so he would have cleats. >> so they can play this game. what it does is it speaks to the self reliance and the termination of each piece. now, 100 year-old tradition called the commemorative classic the game location. alternates between salisbury
and charlotte based hbcu johnson c smith university generates a lot of revenue. people come from far and wide to witness these 2 institutions still playing each other. on the one >> and so from the tourist perspective, in a destination perspective, we bring in a lot of resources. >> and this just history, history history. when visitors arrive to the campus is almost like walking around a museum. you'll find the mazzilli and where joseph price. the university's first president is buried. what history. what a legacy. another spot. the horseshoe, the meeting place of the divine 9 sororities and fraternities on campus. these building owned and by squirrels and pigeons. another thing you'll notice crumbling buildings like this tower which was once the main power source on the land. >> a report by the government accountability office found
nationwide. each hbcu is in need of at least 46 million dollars in repairs. on average. we have to make this season's do we? >> use the resources that we have to try to make sure we can keep the class is going in. keep up with the equipment and pay the light bills and things of that nature do we try to figure out ways to? we the buildings and so, you know, it's it's it's a halt toss to make once the only option for black students is now the first choice for many graduates. >> livingstone college president doctor jimmy jenkins says resources remain scarce across many hbc use data from the american council of education says over a 12 year period. >> public and private hbc use experienced the steepest declines in federal funding per full-time student. >> performing the way above our means. but we could think of what we could do. we had
the resources to be able to, in fact. take up the burden bad. it's to resources for extra work, an extra support. congress recognizes the underfunding of hbc use. lawmakers introduced the ignite hbcu excellence act in may of 2021 to provide financial resources for long-term improvements. what we found. >> over the past few years is that the more we focus on hbc use, the more likely we are to see success throughout our country and every corridor ignite does is gives us another opportunity to focus on funding our hbcu senator tim scott from south carolina co sponsors the bill. he's hoping for a vote in early 2022, the future is really bright for our nation because we're putting more emphasis on our historically black colleges and universities hbcu graduates. some of the nation's top doctors, lawyers, engineers, and more.
>> students like ingram lead with more than just a degree. it's a blessing that they can, you know, put >> education for their students and still be here at the so many years. so it's just a blessing to graduate from historical place in charlotte. casey jones reporting. and join kron 4 as we continue to celebrate black history with a special called mind body soul. >> and it's anchored by kron four's pam moore. and it's this thursday,
>> it's 9.25. and bart is going to run its weekend service today because it's presidents day and that means the trains are going to run through midnight. the system as a whole is now running back to normal. it's expanded service. >> and now that we're beyond the pandemic and people are starting to get back to work, they're offering more trains and transfer points along their lines. and in addition, bart is now offering a midnight train 7 days a week. >> francisco's most iconic hotel getting a new name and there is a reason behind you the new name coming up with a lot.
>> 9.29. right now we're checking out the weather and i were the big boy this morning. i don't know if it's warmed up since then, but is pretty chilly out this morning. yeah, definitely. still cold from vote as cold as it was. when you're out this morning, though, daria sunshine is starting to help us out a little bit. but as you can see those joggers out there, they're still in the >> jackets and the sweat pants because it's not shorts and t-shirts weather anymore. we do have snow up in the sierra nevada. the heaviest of it is still expected to head on into tonight and tomorrow. really welcome to see that would love
to see some more rain than we're going to get here in the bay. really, just a few sprinkles tomorrow. and today, a dry but breezy and cool. one current temperatures may be out of the 30's, but we're still down in the 40's. san jose at 48 degrees. san francisco at forty-seven. same numbers for concord and santa rosa. talk of an afternoon in the 50's with those breezy conditions. so definitely don't forget the jackets, reyna what we need the extra few minutes. you know what today's been a day where you should get things done because >> traffic has been really great. it's been really nice and light. >> we knew that because today was a holiday. lot of folks are still out of town. let's check on the south. they want to one 85 in menlo park about 27 minutes for you. there. the bay bridge here at 9.30, just 8 minutes. and it really has just been 8 minutes. >> all morning long. san mateo bridge, 13 headed across towards the peninsula. highway 4 were typically backed up only 14 minutes as you're traveling towards conquered. and we'll check on crockett to as you can see, traffic is at the limit. 15 minutes for you
dry, daria. >> thank you, ray. 9.30, right now. the big story in san francisco, the famous sir francis drake hotel is no more. and when it comes back again because you'll say where to go, it's going to have a new name. so it's really gone for good. a kron four's will tran is live with the explanation on why they're doing this. i will. >> because they that their history and then they realize that sir francis drake, well, he has a tie to slavery. he's the famous british british sailor back in the 15, 100's that hotel has been in san francisco for 94 years and will continue to be in san francisco, albeit burbank forward after april. it will be called the beacon grand. hotel has greeted millions of people throughout the decades since perhaps the most famous hotel and all of san francisco. and think about all the people that has ever gone through our wonderful city. don't tell will be. there are
some parts of what you remember suppresses straight to people still remains. so they're still in the out. but because of renovations, they will through our things as well. so there's a new feel to it. this is not the first time his name has been removed. this actually happened as recently as last year in county where a high school for years was named sir francis drake. high school. we talked about it for 9 months. a lot of back and forth. should we should we not do it? i mean, he was alive in the 15, 100's, not the 21st century, but then they decided as they needed to go down and you can they removed it. the change to that high school state to archie williams, famous olympian in 1936. born in oakland and i want i'm actually work at that high school. so it's our hugh williams and then this or francis drake statue that stood by the larkspur ferry terminal for a long time that went down in the overnight hours 2 years ago after much debate as well. so that's
gone. the name sir francis drake boulevard that still remains mostly the reason i say mostly it's because it stretches for 43 miles. there are many areas, many cities and counties. so they left it up each city to the side and the city of fairfax. they decided to take that name down. change your still be walking trail on in people live there hundreds of years ago. for the most part, presser, fresh district boulevard to tracked for now, as far as daria, you and i were talking about this so little bit earlier this morning. will there door open right at the front to greet you. and that's almost synonymous with oppressive, striking all the hospitality. answer is i don't know that still have talk about think about it. but more than likely you and i've been around us and many times more than likely when read of a of things go away. >> i like the way you put
that. we've been around the sun many times. i like it. all right. thank you. will. happening now in the north bay. chp is looking for a truck that was involved in hit run crash. it happened last thursday on highway one o one south of healdsburg. and it was a silver ram pickup truck. it ran into a woman who was standing outside her car because and run out of gas struck and killed her and then took off. they're looking for that pick up and the driver. they think it has front end damage. san francisco police are investigating the death of a 16 year-old girl. she was found dead in the south of market neighborhood friday morning. investigators are looking into whether it was an overdose. that's a possibility. the medical examiner's office ruled the death suspicious, but we don't have any other details about that. 16 year-old staff. its 9.34 in a california lawmaker is looking to eliminate pay inequality with a bill that would disclose workers salaries. the bill would force companies with 100 workers to
publicly say how much you make where they pay people be broken down, not by your name, but by gender and ethnicity. the author, the bill says it builds on previous legislation. in addition to ensuring workers have waged transparency, the bill also covers contracted employees. the nonprofit equal rights advocates supports that effort. >> sometimes those contract workers outnumber the direct employees of the other company and they often receive less pay worse benefits. so it's almost this kind of subclass of workers who are being treated differently than the direct employees and having this kind of pay data being reported and having and companies have report this pay data will ensure that we have oversight over these contract workers to ensure that they are being paid fairly. >> the bill stuff to go several different legislative review process as before making its way to the governor's desk. the thinking by august 31st. and there's a
bill of rights for your pets. that's in the work in california. it would provide new protections and this is a bill the state assembly is looking at. it's called dog and cat bill of rights. the author says that a record number of animals were adopted during the pandemic. you probably know somebody who adopted a dog. i do many of these pets, though, are now being taken back to the shelters. people are going back to work and they go now on the home enough. and the author this bill says animals deserve safety and security. and so if approved this bill for dogs and cats would grant of 7 fundamental rights, including freedom from exploitation and abuse. access to food, water and shelter and daily mental and physical stimulation. could be? it's 9.36, right now. and still ahead on the kron, 4 morning news, we're celebrating black history. and this morning we're going to hear. >> from a sports agent about breaking barriers. nobody knows that rate varies like steph curry. oh, my gosh. what

shot in the final score was one 63 to one 60 seth to the heavy lifting. and in the end, he was named the all star mvp for the first time in his career. what an honor he says, especially now that the trophy is named after kobe bryant. >> this is definitely special. the first you've got to honor kobe and his life and his legacy with this trophy. you know, the thought that went into i can't spinoffs out my head, but i know everything on this trophy means something in terms of. his life and what he represented. congressman is on the cordon. want to have been all-star mvp trophy and no for it to be the first one definite makes u.s. special. >> steph was also honored last night as a member of an nba 75th anniversary team. he's hoisting the trophy. they're not have to get back to work here in the bay area because he also race going to be over this weekend. words are back in action on thursday playing the portland trail blazers
late i mean, everybody, know want >> make it holiday they could use a full holiday week because i think the best skiing will actually be on wednesday. tomorrow is going to be the heaviest of snow fall, which means tomorrow is going to be the worst travel day. but after that, finally getting a good dose of snow in the sierra, sure. we saw some last week, but this time around, it's really going to start piling up to over a foot in many spots, not stopping some people from heading up to 80 this morning. skies in the bay area there. nice and clear. it feels more like winter today, but it just doesn't look like it with that sunshine up about the sierra nevada, on the other hand, has seen a nice dose of snow and it's really only going to kick into gear further tonight into tomorrow, really starting to pile up across the sierra and falling as low in elevation of us around 1000 feet. tonight. well, over 18 inches in some of those upper elevations bay area tonight into tomorrow, seeing a couple of isolated showers. many of us won't happen to any of this while others of us will see some
brief shower activity, especially up in the santa cruz mountains. the blows and mountains down in monterey and san benito counties actually looking at the potential of one to 3 inches of snowfall. so right along the central coast and even south bay seeing some areas of snowfall in those upper elevations. nice to see looking a little bit more like winter after so much summer weather recently. now today is going to be a dry one, but a brisk one with winds gusting to 20 to 30 miles per hour across the bay. that's going make those 50's that we have for daytime highs feel all the cooler. so sweaters, light jackets, anything that you were yesterday? good idea to pull all that stuff back out today and really over the next several days as it is not going to be a warm week. but one of the cooler weeks we've had in a minute, san jose fremont pleasanton in oakland among spots at 57 for your highs. only one, 60 on the map. that's for you in antioch today. tomorrow's daytime highs are actually set to be a little cooler. we do have showers possible for the bay area and snowfall really heavy
