it was ten years ago today w the worlds well, believe it or not, traders are at work today because money never sleeps and the dow is up 56 and change to leave the dow at this point at 18,086. anne? it was 10 years ago today that we witnessed one of the world's worst natural disasters when the tsunami devastated southeast asia. indonesia, thailand and others had moments of silence to mark the time the tsunami hit. it was triggered by a 9.1 magnitude earthquake. it sent waves roaring across the indian ocean at jetliner
speeds. almost 228,000 people died in 14 countries. survivors lived in fear for a long time after. >> every time those children felt that shock, they were fearful that another wave was coming. no one knew if another tsunami was going to be triggered. >> that 9.1 earthquake was the region's most powerful in nearly half a century. you know, we had that damage all the way across the pacific in -- remember that video of the waves rolling into santa cruz harbor and some of the boats getting beaten up down there. so that was an unbelievable day. you know, if you look towards the golden gate bridge you would think traffic would be light but the northbound lanes are beginning to jam up a little bit. you know why? anne, any guesses? >> no. >> because this is the day, you know, in all of these weekend days you've got hundreds of thousands heading to the viewpoint at the north end of the golden gate bridge and it always jams up and backs up almost some days on to lombard with so many people going to the viewpoint but i'll tell you what, they picked a
pretty good day for it because it's beautiful visibility today in excess of 50 miles in parts of the bay area. so as a result, we are looking at just a gorgeous day for the bay area and for sightseeing and backing up traffic on the golden gate bridge. 59 in concord, oakland, livermore 56. san francisco 53. san jose 55. santa rosa 56. for us, we are looking at readings that will mostly stay in the 50s today. as we have a little chill air over the bay area, some frost overnight expected. and then dry weather ahead. as far as 2015 all the way into next year which is of course just next week. the ridge remains in place over the west coast. that's going to give us somewhat breezy conditions today not a big deal sandwiched in between two lows on either side of it. as a result we'll have a cool, dry weekend with plenty of sunshine. crackling clear visibilities for the next couple of days. sunset tonight at 4:57 p.m.
sun rising tomorrow at 7:24 a.m. and tomorrow is going to be about as chilly as it will be today. we think anything under 60 is a reason to call 911. 56 in san mateo. and 54 at pacifica today. 57 for hayward. and 55 in morgan hill. about the same for los gatos. 57 pleasant hill. 57 walnut creek. 56 pleasanton. 55 livermore. 54 today at brentwood. up in the north bay nice day for a trip to the wine country. napa hits 58 degrees. 58 for sonoma. and 59 degrees at petaluma. 59 for santa rosa. by the way, if you are heading to the central valley, have a care because this is the time of the year when they do have that dense fog forming and that is nasty stuff. sometimes zero visibility forms about 9:00 at night hangs in until about 9:00 in the morning. oh, the 9ers are playing this weekend 1:25 p.m. if you are headed to the game
it will be mostly sunny and 58 degrees at game time. extended forecast we'll be looking for plenty of sunshine as we head into the weekend. numbers remain as far as highs are concerned the upper 50s. overnight lows though will get near frosty readings tonight in the cooler inland valleys. next week there's a little system coming in on tuesday. and stay tuned on that. paul will have more to talk about at 5:00 tonight. there might be a shower or two associated with that on tuesday. wednesday, thursday, into 2015 it looks nice. look at that traffic cleared up now on the golden gate bridge. i guess the view has gone away. anne? here's one of the biggest challenges after christmas. what to do with all of the leftovers. experts say be careful. you can get sick. danielle nottingham lets us know what to avoid. reporter: 'tis the season for turkey, trimmings and pie. we often end up with enough leftovers for weeks but that doesn't mean you should eat them that long. a registered dietician warns bacteria can grow on foods and can make you sick. >> the general rule of thumb is
if something has been in your refrigerator for longer than three to four days, you want to toss it. >> reporter: also on the toss list, anything that's self- serve like chips, crackers, dip and nuts and anything left sitting out. >> so that longer than two-hour period, bacteria is growing. and it doubles just about every 20 minutes. >> reporter: when it comes to reheating holiday leftovers, experts say the microwave is not the best option. warming food in the oven is recommended because it heats more evenly and thoroughly. >> you want to make sure that you're reheating them them to an internal temperature to about 165 degrees so what that's going to do is it's going to kill some of the bacteria that could have had an opportunity to grow when it was sitting out on your table or in the cooling-off period. >> reporter: and just because the leftovers still look good or smell good, doesn't mean it can't make you sick. if bacteria is lingering, you won't be able to see it, smell it or taste it. danielle nottingham, cbs news, los angeles.
>> experts say people who are more susceptible like the elderly and young children should take care when it comes to eating leftovers. now time to check your bay area job market report. cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger is here with more. >> reporter: 2014 is on pace to be the best year for total and private sector job growth since 1999 but which sectors did santa shower with gifts and which got a lump of coal. >> overall, employment has risen by 2.9% this year in the bay area. but they were five industries that led the way nationally. mining jumped by 6%. construction up 3.9%. professional business services up 3.8%. transportation added 3.1% and food services increased by 2.8%. now, other industries didn't fare, as well. the five slowest growing sectors for employment this year were education, which was
up by 1.6%; manufacturing ahead by 1.3; finance up by 1.1%; and information, which only grew by .6%. the worst sector of all was government, which was hit hard by sequestration. santa's favorite sector since the great recession began six years ago has been healthcare which has seen employment increase by 2.1% annually. here's hoping st. nick spreads out his gift-giving across more sectors in 2015. i'm jill schlesinger for kpix 5. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
pore- white gold days there's nothing better than bacon and collard greens. it's comfort food and simple to prepare. you started with the bacon and cooked it with -- >> nothing. you let the bacon render out the fat and add in a little garlic and mincep minced onion and they cook in the bacon fat. quick blanche and saute. salted water gets the colors and flavors to get going. you notice the bi leaves, into strips not cubes. it's nicer when you have some of that big chunks of bacon, you can cut it with a fork if you want but if you want to cook this if you want the collard greens more crispy cook it for 10 minutes but i just
want that nice coating. >> look at this. this is beautiful. plenty of bacon. plenty of color. one more piece right there. that's it. beautiful. that's hearty. >> it is. >> bacon and collard greens. thank you, bella. bye-bye. it is friday and we're answering your pet questions with our pet expert dr. jill chase. that's for being here with your friend. >> tell us about some of the new year's resolutions that pet owners should be thinking about right now. >> oh, yeah. so we were thinking that it would be great today's show to talk about what would be a good resolution for your pets. and certainly i was thinking along the lines of dental hygiene and brushing teeth daily. >> that is something that pet owners forget about or don't want to deal with. >> it's easy. we did a segment and we'll probably do another one showing how to do that. it's easy. that would be great. weight reduction is another one. i think anybody who has a pet who needs to lose some weight maybe that could be a
resolution to try to get weight down. >> also sometimes sounds a little more intimidating than it is. how do you deal with the begging? >> the short answer would be just feed a little bit less literally each time you feed and over time, eventually, the weight will come down slowly. >> hopefully they won't notice. exercise, also very important. >> yes. that would be great for those people who are not exercising their pets that would be a new year's resolution. >> anything for cat owners when it comes to exercise? >> cats love to be played with. people forget about that so play with your cat, right? get those toys and, you know, have a good time with them. >> very good. and the other is regular veterinary exams. >> yeah. try to remember that every year your pet should be examined every year. and when they are older sometimes it's twice a year sometimes four times a year. depends on how old. >> a lot of people think the
pet is healthy should i go through the hassle of taking it in. >> yes, animals don't always show that they're ill so we often times can tell that they're ill and at a certain age we start doing blood and urine, so yeah. >> well, dr. jill chase and skylar, thanks for coming in. we want to invite all you pet lovers send us your questions about their health and well- being. just email firstname.lastname@example.org or on our facebook page, and we'll have our pet expert give you an answer every friday right here at noon. we'll be right back. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
