better understanding of one of the greatest mysteries of our time. the hearing comes on the heels of a u f o report that was released to congress last summer. it found that more than 140 incidents involving u f o's could not be explained by intelligence officials and were not the work of the military or the government. now, bay area baseball, the a's hosted the angels for a double header at the coliseum in game one. the a's got a 3 run homerun in the bottom of the 9th. oakland winds by a final of 4 to 3. but in game 2, the angels got their revenge. los angeles took the lead in the second inning and never looked back. the angels win game 2 by a double header of the double header final of 9 to one. the 2 teams play again this afternoon. first pitch is set for one. 0, 7, at the coliseum. as for the giants, they were in st. louis taking on the cardinals. the st. louis took the lead in the

8:43 am
8:44 am
>> welcome back. we have dave spahr standing by with our weather forecast. what should people expect from the step outdoors today? dave? >> first things first. a lot of talk going pretty good morning, everybody. much cooler today, too. even in the inland spots will see better clearing. there is a little bit of a minor warm-up happening. we get a shot of this from tahoe. lots of sunshine going on. but 67 69 tuesday, wednesday, 71 you get the idea there yet. warming trend will see that on the home front, too. speaking of which this is downtown san francisco, finally able to make out some of the skyline here going on here as the fog starts to lift off. but we're a little bit of a sandwich zone here as all this marine layer has been encouraged to spill across the bay. you know the infection fog somewhat typical. but this is going to be a nice, big broom tomorrow morning and kind of clear everything out because of the marine layer is coming back
8:45 am
again tonight. 72 for any off most readings in the 60's in london, the east bay, but along the east bay shoreline mid-fifties also mid to upper 50's up in the north bay there. 61 this hour in a bottle with chilly. 52 in san francisco going forward with future cast for clears out nicely this afternoon. and then overnight we have some scattered clouds coupled with the marine layer spilling back in again. but as this front drops south, it will clear everything out for us fairly early. excuse me for the early for your morning. on monday longer range forecast models don't really have much hope for us getting any rain with all of this. we get just pieces of clouds, of pieces of these fronts coming to our north, mostly even into early next week, we might get the invite of some scattered clouds going on here. but again, any real chance of rain. look at how just bypasses us as you can see. so it doesn't look very hopeful over the next 7 days of getting anything. 4 zone forecast coming into sunday. 66 san francisco might be a bit of a climb from where we stand right now. we have to do better with this clearing,
8:46 am
which will not be the case along the coast. a lot of 50's to be had. they're 66 burning again to the south. most readings in the lower to middle 70's in the south bay mid to upper 70 77 for san jose. lower 70's east bay shoreline, tri valley getting to the upper 70's with walnut creek at 80 82 for concord. 72 for berkeley, the layover, the cool 70 85 fairfield. 82 going on for now, but and also santa rosa. but chilly at the beaches. 70 forecast. a reminder it's still spring. yes away. we come back to the 80's by tuesday and wednesday. looking good on that all the way into next weekend. again, we'll get pieces of these fronts that will throw some scattered clouds our way. stephanie, thanks very much, dave. >> for your health this morning may is national blood pressure month. a time to raise awareness about hypertension, control and stroke prevention turns out there are several factors that can affect or readings in a big way. our health expert karen owoc is here to tell us how to avoid the most common errors when measuring your blood pressure. nice to see
8:47 am
you, karen. >> you say here i stephanie. so, you know, i just want to start with this question for you. we call high blood pressure, a silent killer. why is that? because there there are many symptoms. some people could have high blood pressure and they wouldn't even know it. >> and when you do have high blood pressure, it can be very of deadly. even get have a heart attack. heart failure stroke. so very, very serious disease is tied in with high blood pressure. so it's real important to monitor yourself and make sure that you are getting regular and what are some factors that can affect our ratings? so number one is the cuff size is not the right size. >> so when you when you get a blood pressure, it's essential that we compressed the artery so that it stops blood flow. so you have a bladder.
8:48 am
>> inside inside your blood pressure, cuff this, this all this air, it's what's compressing the arteries. so that's important to make sure. >> that blatter fits right. so here's an example of of of bladder a cuff that does not set. the paper tell is your arm. it's big okay. there we go. okay. so think of the blue blue line skews me as your break. you'll artery this arrow should line up along the the blue line that your break, he'll artery. but by having diff culty and and the and the blood pressure cuff has markings on it. so like, see like this. now, these markings should should cross over this. this arrow here and notice. so we have about 2 inches. it's too bad. 2 inches too small.
8:49 am
>> right here. it's not. it's not crossing over. so when your when your blood pressure cuff is not not. >> it's too big. that means it's going to take a lot of pressure to fill that blatter with with with air. so now that just the opposite, it's to see your blood pressure is going to be artificially high. now here is in this instance, this cost is too large. so the markings are crossing over the that they're your artery here. it's crossing way over. so the the blatter is actually wrapping around itself. so it's got going to actually compress the artery very quickly. and that means that your your blood pressure is going to be artificially low. so really important to make sure that those cuffs fit right properly. and i i believe the arm position also has a lot to do with it as well. that is huge. and i always see this done incorrectly. so your arms should be at hart high kind of
8:50 am
mid sternum and it should be supported with the palm up. and the sometimes i see people take their blood pressure when they're sitting in the chair, there to right ankle. you need to have that arm outstretched. the artery is is not king and make sure that it's not too high and not to go it gets too high. the bloods going to float added the arm. you're going to have an artificially low blood pressure and is down here. you're going to have more blood flow into the are is going to be artificially. hi. some thing that some people asked me. they asked me about the risk to it. the wrist monitor. i i only use it in certain circumstances, but it's real in general. they're not the most accurate because there's so many different positions that position your arm position of your wrist all have an effect. so this not that i'm promoting but and the particular brand. but the on
8:51 am
ron actually has a light that will tell you if it's in the wrong position, right position. you really need that. it's orange. if it's in the wrong position and it's blue when it's it's in the right position. so if you're going to get something like this is really important to have that type of indicator and how do factors like the resting period in the posture. >> play into affecting your readings. very important to sit down and and resting calm down for about 5 minutes before you take that first resting blood pressure often times. when you go to the doctor, you. >> yeah. you get up your running to the doctor. you get your blood pressure. it's usually if if that's the case you want to make sure you're resting and positioning is really important. you want to be support it because you don't want muscle tension dislike. you don't want your your arm 10 step when it it's an support. it so feet are flat on the floor. and your back is support it. and really
8:52 am
important because otherwise, if you're sitting on a doctors on the table, generally your feet are dangling. your bag doesn't support it. so you're 10 step trying to hold that position. that's going to raise your blood pressure in our last. you know, 30 seconds here now does what you're wearing affect your readings. >> you want to take you want your blood pressure taken against your skin. if you have clothing. >> don't just push up your yours your sleeve because sometimes that could also be constricting. so try and take your shirt off. make sure you when you go to the doctor, you have something that you can take off. it's going to affect it. if it's less than 2 millimeters, it's okay. so we're talking really thinned t-shirt. otherwise, it really needs to be on your skin. >> all reght. thank you, karen owoc, our local health health expert. pleasure to have you again with us. the are. you're

9:16 am
about his plans to tackle the problem is the new san francisco police commissioner kevin who took over the position in april. thank you so much for joining us today. kevin, thank you so much for having me. so, you know, how are things going to be different under your watch and how can we expect to see changes in policing in the city? >> i hope so. a% i'm really excited to join my fellow commissioners as a member of the commission, i have a couple of clear goals. i want to accomplish one. as for the commission, the department to be accessible and available to the community to to regain san francisco's leadership on police reform and criminal justice reform and 3 to everything i can to help asian american community feel safer in what is really an unprecedented time he give us some it specific examples on how you're planning to make some adjustments. >> sure. so i a big priority of mine is commune of ala bility inaccessibility into that includes having had the police commission have meetings, the community really focusing on community
9:17 am
policing, ensuring that there's transparency in those areas when it comes to a police reforms. i'm excited to work with my fellow commissioner max car over a stone we this week introduce a new policy and a racially biased traffic stops in 7 to scold most going to be working on reforming the search warrant policy of the staff to school police department to make sure that also touches are being carried within the confines of the law. >> how soon can we see some of these measures implemented? i think very soon. so i think with the example of pretext stops, there's data that show that. >> black san franciscans are between 6 and 10 times more likely to be stopped and searched. and this new policy we started the introduction of justice last wednesday i think is going to help address that. we're working with a coalition of over 60 community organizations. there's going to be 30 days of public comment. and i the plan is to pass a pause in the summer and hopefully can such as c with tangible impacts from that new
9:18 am
policy on >> and we know that the san francisco police force you're facing this historic staffing shortage and that's the case with a lot of law enforcement agencies across the country. so are there any plans on your end to recruit more officers and is recruiting more officers, the solution to addressing crime in the city. >> i think that it's important to remember, first of all, that the staffing shortages, like you said, a calm across departments but also common across the entire economy in the public and private sector. we're seeing employers struggling to find workers. i think it's imp rtant to see that in that broader context. i think a lot of the policies i propose are designed to help rebuild trust within the department and the community. and i think that will help with staffing because if you have a community that trust the department, more people from that community are going to want to become officers. i also think that it's important for us as san franciscans to remember that the police department isn't the only solution to a lot of the issues out of the mayor's office has been working
