[ music playing ]. >> all right. feeling good on a thursday morning. time to open up the 9:00 hour. socked in for a number of cities around the bay as we pan across san francisco bay from san francisco to the bay bridge
9:01 am
right there. welcome to "the 9", everybody. alongside sal castaneda, gasia mikaelian, i am mike mibach. the major league all-star soccer game is today in san jose, and a little dead at the top for you. they are going to be at the shoreline amphitheater on the weekend. we will talk soccer a little bit later. first we have to go back east to philadelphia. high-profile speakers at the dnc boosting hillary clinton while taking aim at donald trump as the first woman major party presidential nominee gets ready to address the nation on the last night of this. caroline shively has more from philadelphia. >> reporter: hillary clinton thrilled the crowd at the dnc ahead of the biggest political speech of her life. president obama passing the torch to his former secretary of state last night here in philadelphia. >> there has never been a man or a woman, not me, not bill, nobody more qualified than
9:02 am
hillary clinton to serve as president of the united states of america. >> reporter: hillary clinton making a surprise appearance on stage with the man who defeated her eight years ago, whose speech followed remarks from her vice presidential pick tim kaine. >> she is ready to fight. she is ready to win. she is ready to lead. >> reporter: the current second in command and clinton's one time potential rival vice president joe biden also speaking to the crowd. >> we all understand what it will mean for our daughters and granddaughters when hillary clinton walks into the oval office as president of the united states of america. it will change their lives. >> reporter: philadelphia adding to its historical significance tonight when clinton formally accepts the democratic nomination. >> in 2016, we are talking about how we are stronger together, and you will hear her flesh out not just what this means from a value standpoint,
9:03 am
but specific policies. >> reporter: hillary clinton expected to work on her speech through the day today drawing inspiration from her 1996 book, it takes a village. >> protests continue outside the democratic national convention there in philadelphia. >> they have just broken through the barriers, guys. >> one group of protesters broke through a fence. they were arrested. police say some of the protesters are bernie sanders supporters. the ones who broke through the fence were outside agitators. another group burned an american flag and a woman was burned on her leg when she tried to step on the burning flag. >> tonight hillary clinton will wrap up the democratic national convention with her acceptance speech. she will be introduced by her daughter chelsea. aides say hillary clinton will lay out her vision for the future tonight and talk about how she plans to improve the economy and ensure the country's security. >> the dnc has faced criticism
9:04 am
over its silence on both isis and terrorism in general. according to multiple reports and fact checkers, not one of monday's 61 speakers mentioned isis and there were five mentions on tuesday. last night president obama mentioned it saying, quote, he knows hillary will not relent until isil is destroyed. for the past few days we have been talking with joe thumann, professor of politics at san francisco state university. he is also a consultant to nato focusing on isis and use of social media to recruit and expand terror networks. joe is back with us again. i asked you about the terrorism and how little it was brought up yesterday over the convention. i mean, even pope francis yesterday had some strong words, saying, you know, there is a war going on in our world, although he cautioned that it wasn't a war in religion. as it goes further along with hillary clinton and the dnc. she was a former secretary of state, is it a bigger problem and will it last after the convention if it's not addressed tonight? >> well, i think for the democrats not to talk about it
9:05 am
is to ignore a global issue. but to this point, i have to say that the convention so far has been, as far as messaging is concerned, really very disciplined. they have made a concerted effort, as we talked about earlier this week, to sort of express these community values. we, not me. us, not i. that sort of thing. we are thinking about the group. and they have been very inclusive of a broad number of people, backgrounds including, by the way, republicans getting lots of prominent mention and independent voters and last night people who are progressives being singled out. in terms of issues now, the discussion and focus on terrorism has not been as front forward as it has been for the republicans, and you can bet going forward, given the proliferation of these signs of attacks, including the outrageous attack in a church and killing of a priest during the service, you know, one of the problems, by the way, with
9:06 am
terrorism, the terrorists learned that in order to generate news coverage, which they need, they have to progressively do more and more outrageous things. after a while, if you keep doing the same thing, we in news media stop paying attention. it goes from page 1 to 32 and sometimes we don't cover it. killing of a priest is the series in more outrageous things. the fact that it wasn't mentioned at the convention was newsworthy. it's as if inside the convention they were thinking about other things when the public is focused on that. >> do you think fear of terrorist attacks, fear of traveling, fear that americans and other people around the world have, but americans helped donald trump? he has been talking about it more, it seems. he talked about it a lot more in his convention. do you think that helps the republicans? >> the fact that they seem focused on that does. and the arguments that he is making specifically, i mean probably the best argument he has, because it's unfair, i think, to blame the existence
9:07 am
of isis on hillary clinton or something like that, but his argument with reference to the conditions in libya. libya, by the way, is a target now for daesh, as i prefer to call them, to develop. daesh exist and they prosper in nations with failed governments. >> did it exist in libya before gaddafi -- >> no, it came afterwards. the linkage to clinton, is made by publications like the "new york times." it was miss clinton who persuaded president obama so trust the libyan rebels to say they could fill the space after gaddafi was gone. they overpromised and underdelivered. he might not have gone along with that had she not recommended it. that's a legitimate criticism. but in terms of daesh specifically, as they are losing ground today in syria and iraq, they lose militarily in the face to face combat that's going on.
9:08 am
they are likely to expand their messaging through social messages, to singular actors around the planet, as you have seen. frankly, that's as effective as taking that territory in the middle east. it scares a lot of people. >> if i could ask, you make a point of using the daesh, as i think secretary kerry does. president obama uses isil. most people use isis. talk to me about the choice of terms. >> sure. so for me, as i learned actually at the last nato conference i attended for which there were lots of islamic military people from our alleyed countries, they took great offense to anything having isis or isil. islamic state in lef aunt, by the way, is what that means for isil. they don't like the words islamic state because they say allowing a group to call themselves that presumes they speak for all muslims. the number of muslims on the planet is 1.6 to 2 billion people. daesh is actually just an abbreviation, which in arabic
9:09 am
is offensive to an islam -- it's offensive to abbreviate words. they say call them daesh. it's the least respectful way of saying it. >> i see. i will ask you real quick, they were showing pictures of terror attacks overseas. people have said pretty soon someone is going to come into the u.s. to cause harm here. we heard a of a number of attacks where people may have been inspired by isil, isis or daesh. talk to me about the difference. >> well, in many ways, there is not a lot of difference. the common thread for both was that daesh, when they recruit these people, do so through social media. they target millennials. we are thinking about voters. the same kind of voters bernie sanders is going after. 18 to 29-year-olds. these people as muslims are living in societies where they
9:10 am
are marginalized, ostracized as being different. they go after them for the same reason our military goes after young people. they are less likely to be married, have children. they are more easily manipulated. >> more likely to give up their own lives? >> yes. frankly, by the way, on that front, these people in these attacks go in armed with a vest or whatever. they have handlers who have a remote detonation device. they have a last-minute change of heart, it's still gonna happen. this is the danger. those people can come from outside, but they can also be recruited from inside. >> weather terrorism is addressed tonight, surely in the debates we will see it. >> it's going to be the issue. and the question, of course -- see, this is a group that is fighting an asymmetric war. it's not our troops against their troops. we don't know where they are. so fighting them is kind of like whack a mole. it's hard to know where they are. and it takes very little effort on their part to scare people. it's not about the people that they kill or the people that
9:11 am
they attack in that church. it's the message that sends to the greater global community, which is what terrorism is all about. it's scary. >> professor, thank you again for joining us. >> . coming up on "mornings on 2: the 9", a large fire continues to burn in monterey county. an update on the effort to contain it. plus, we catch up with the local crews on the ground. myhearts gone sayonara.

9:14 am
about be given to the police commission in september before any potential candidates are interviewed. this morning we talked to one of the san francisco police commissioners about the process. >> we just want the best person. he know there are pros and cons. in the end we will be looking for the next person. the department is changing. a lot of tough incidents have shaped what the san francisco pd is. we want somebody to continue the new policing, the new way of policing we are going to be doing in san francisco moving forward. >> and if you want to give your input on san francisco's next police chief we posted a link to the survey at ktvu.com. look for it in the web links section. our question today is do you think the next san francisco police chief should come from within the department or outside and why. gasia, you have received a number of responses? >> we have been talking about it through the morning.

the opening ceremonies of the 2016 summer olympics are a week from tomorrow. athletes from all over the world are heading for brazil. here is have a of jamacian superstar usain bolt arriving at the airport yesterday.
9:20 am
he has six olympic gold medals from the beijing and london olympics. >> the russian olympic team preparing to board a flight yesterday. taking pictures and waiting with each other at the airport in moscow. controversy has surrounded the russian delegation and all of the track and field athletes were banned from competing over doping allegations. >> brad brooks is a brazil chief correspondent for reuters. he has been living in brazil for eight years. >> he joins us live via skype this morning. brad, good morning to you. >> good morning. >> so let's talk about, first, i am curious about the super bacteria. you have been all over this story. does that super bacteria still exist, and to what extent right now off the beaches? >> there is no question that it still exists. the study that our report was based on was using water samples from 2013-2014 and the scientists themselves, she tells me she continues to carry
9:21 am
out water samples and she continues to find that super bacteria. >> in the past, the olympic games have always had problems leading up to it. i remember in china and then sochi and all these games have had concerns, and then the games start and everything seems okay and all of it fades into the background. do you think that's going to happen this time? >> i do to a certain extent. we saw that during the 2014 world cup in brazil where there were all sorts of concerns and problems leading up to the cup. the difference is, and what journalists on the ground try to distinguish, is the problems with the legacy, with the money spent, with the misuse of how that money is spent, and then the actual sporting events themselves. and we saw that in the world cup, and i think we will see that in the olympics. i think that the olympics will be a spectacular sporting event, but at what cost and who is paying that cost? that's the big question.
9:22 am
>> brad, let's talk about the infrastructure, if you will, inside the olympic village, inside some of the venues. i am reading reports that essentially i can't flush the toilet while my roommate is in the shower. tell me what's happening in that respect. >> yeah. we did see, similar to the winter olympics in russia, which i think was a little worse situation, you know, basically this athletes village is the largest that has ever been built for an olympics. i have seen it myself. it's amazing. i think 30 some towers. it's huge. and they clearly did not do the proper testing before having some athletes move in, and so they had to send in a crew of about 500 workers to work 24 hours a day to try to get these apartments in shape. it seems that most of those problems have been resolved. >> brad, the mayor of rio has
9:23 am
been getting slammed on social media, on twitter especially. and he is kind of engaged with those critics. just to read one for our viewers. he said in response, stop being so grumpy, go play some soccer. go to church. go hang out with your girlfriend. tell me a little bit about this mayor, and does a lot of this responsibility and these accusations fall on him, or more so the bigger picture of the olympic committee? >> mayor eduardo baez is a figure. he is quite a figure. he is kind of a rudy giuliani of brazil, if you will, in some respects. a lot of it does fall on him, to be perfectly honest. for instance, the big issue of water pollution, he has nothing to do with that. that is the responsibility of the state, and it's a complete failure of the state utility to
9:24 am
clean up rio's waters for the olympics. so he has no blame for that. he does have some blame storm of the problems with the infrastructure, with the legacy, with the urban mobility and transportation issues. but those, to be perfectly honest, those are turning out to be kind of the high points of the olympics. >> brad, i guess what a lot of people are wondering is, this is not a surprise. these games didn't just roll up out of the blue. they have had plenty of time to prepare for them and now it seems like everything is being done at the last minute. what kind of -- what problems did they have? what happened that it is going down this way? >> well, i have to be careful here because i am married to a brazilian. i have lived from this country for eight years. if you know brazil, it's no big surprise that things are kind of done at the last minute. but it should also be emphasized that rio de janeiro, you know, it's a fascinating
9:25 am
city. it's a beautiful city. and every year they host massive events like the new year's eve party, the carnival celebration that they are famous for, and they somehow always pull it off. i think that will be the case here. there will be problems. we may see breakdowns in some sort of transportation. there could be problems with the venues. but i think by and large we are going to see the sporting event itself is going to be a pretty interesting spectacle, you know. the legacy of the games. the promises that were made by the local olympic committee in terms of cleaning up the water, cleaning up the air. they totally failed on that. they missed the boat. they are not gonna be able do that. >> before we let you go, we are expecting to hear from health officials with an update on the zika virus. what are you concerned about there in rio whether it comes to zika? >> you know, i got to be honest with you. one of my colleagues is really
9:26 am
focused on that. reuters has put out, i think, quite a bit of like silver stories on this. it's less of a concern here than it seems to be in the united states. i hear from my own family in the united states. there are reports. it's been cold here for brazil standards, for rio standards. it's been dry. that means from the mosquito population is going to be from what it would be at the height of the zika season. so i think it's going to be less of a concern, less of a problem than people are -- have made it out to be. >> all right. brad, nice reporting down there. now i know someone who lives in rio. if i swing down for carnival, i will give you a buzz. >> come on down. >> i will seriously consider that. thank you. cup next on "mornings on 2: the 9" -- coming up next on "mornings on 2: the 9", the conflicting reports as to what a bright light racing across
9:27 am
the sky was. the sky was. i love you so much. that's why i bought six of you... for when you stretch out. i want you to stay this bright blue forever... that's why you will stay in this drawer... forever. i can't live without you. and that's why i will never, ever wash you. protect your clothes from the damage of the wash with downy fabric conditioner. it not only softens and freshens... it helps protect clothes... from stretching, fading and fuzz... so your favorite clothes stay your favorite clothes. downy fabric conditioner wash in the wow.
9:28 am
9:29 am
checking twitter as we do this time every day in response to your responses. the question. day. today it was this. do you think the next san francisco police chief should come from within the department or should it be an outsider? we talked with one of the members of the f police commission earlier on "mornings on 2: the 9" the more responses now. >> a message from keith. he said yes. as someone originally from outside california, the police departments are too incest uous. >> nick washington says the next police chief should be an outsider. also should be a minority, black, or hispanic and a female. >> okay. >> let's see. there is one more.
9:30 am
>> i have one more. you bring the most qualified candidate from in or out as long as they pass the standards of citizens. that is la la. >> that's what the commissioner was emphasizing that. meanwhile, this is the fourth and final day of the democratic convention in philadelphia. live pictures of what's happening inside. doesn't appear to be much from this long shot inside the wells fargo center. last night we saw vice presidential nominee tim kaine and vice president joe biden and president obama take the stage. tonight hillary clinton will be giving her speech. >> joining us now, joe, we made it. final day of all these conventions. >> final day. we are not through it yet. >> who is more articulate? bill clinton or president obama? >> wow, what a question.
9:31 am
i think for the time and place, obama is sort of the zeitgeist at this point. >> did his speech last night, does this help hillary clinton at all? >> oh, absolutely. to have a president whose approval rate something in the positive, more than 51% of the country does trust him and approve of his work as president, that was a huge endorsement and absolutely full throated endorsement last night and done arguably one of the top five or six obama speeches ever. he definitely helped her. who does he help her with, is the question. he helps her with, you know, the people who like obama. but he needs to sort of -- she needs that to sort of make sure that she captures the obama base that elected him. >> joe, i notice a lot of the speakers last night mentioned things. they mentioned republicans. president obama also mentioned
9:32 am
some very conservative values. he was talking about his ancestors working hard and not liking braggarts. not liking bullies. that stuck out to me. are these people trying to make a play for disaffected republicans? >> absolutely. and the best ambassadors for that, maybe not necessarily obama, but a couple of guys named joe and mike, who wrote about in "the chronicle" today, and that would be joe biden -- sorry, joe and tim. tim kaine. these are blue-collar white catholic guys who grew up in working class families, and those are the folks who are most mistrustful of hillary clinton right now. you will see them on the road in ohio and pennsylvania. places that i have been touring in the last couple of weeks, talking to the voters who are really dubious about hillary clinton. those two guys are her ambassadors there. >> during president obama's speech last night we saw shots of people in the crowd crying,
9:33 am
getting very emotional. it was sort of a big sweeping emotional speech. not the kind of speech hillary clinton is known for giving. when it comes to the importance of tonight's speech do you think she needs to do something completely different than essentially stand at the microphone and say what we have heard her say so many times before? >> right. i was talking to a speech expert who has written about hillary, written about female candidates in general, and as she -- a very bold idea posted in "the chronicle" just now was get away from the podium. walk around. be like, you know, phil donahue. remember he used to walk around the audience? get around and show that she does care. a week of people talking about how much she cares about people, how much she cares about the issues. maybe mix in the audience with them. it may be radical.
9:34 am
but why not. the most relaxed on the trail is when she is striding around the stage. it would be -- why not? try something different because, you know, her behind the podium is not her at her best. >> joe, i know there has been discontent from bernie supporters. there was still shouting when leon panetta was speaking last night. do you think there will be yelling or chanting tonight when hillary clinton is speaking? >> absolutely, sal. there will be. the chanting and shouting, that's not going away. and there is going to be talk about her and her record as secretary of state in terms of getting involved in wars in the middle east. so that you will definitely, definitely hear that. people will continue to hold up signs that say no ttp, the trans-pacific partnership she was for and now against.
9:35 am
tim kaine is fast tracking it. now he is backing off of it. you are going to see that in the audience. and last night leon panetta, of all people, was shouted down many times by the people in the audience. of course, secretary of defense, long time congressman. so, yes, you will see that tonight. >> tim kaine went hard at trump regarding his tax returns. i wonder if hillary clinton will do the same. interesting idea about getting her away from the podium there. one of the first public speaking classes joe ever took was a teacher who took the podium away and said here you go. >> how did you do? >> here we are, right? >> he did okay. >> have a great night out there. we appreciate it. look forward to your article in "the chronicle" tomorrow. >> thanks, guys. >> 9:35. we sent our meteorologist mark tamayo to one of the warmest spots in the bay area. the far east bay. live from concord, what do you feel like outside right now,
9:36 am
mark? >> reporter: hi there. it's not extremely hot just yet. right now temperatures are in the 60s across -- actually, in concord right now. we are at the home depot. you can see we are in the garden section. look at these beautiful colors out here, guys. coming up in a few minutes after this weather update we will be talking to a gardening expert because, as you know, we are still in a drought. they have some great tips to help you have a beautiful garden and also use less water as well. that will be coming up in a few minutes after this weather segment. right now in concord it's warm, it's sunny. temperatures on track to reach the 90s today. let's look at the forecast highs across the bay area. low clouds and fog near the immediate coastline. hot numbers inland. today we will be a little bit cooler than yesterday. you can see a few triple digits out there for antioch and out towards livermore. concord we are going to put new the upper 90s. if this breeze continues, might trim that to the mid 90s later

9:39 am
have worked hard to build strong relationships with the community and to be transparent. a small girl scout troop from the north seattle area wanted to send a sweet message to the city's police department, but the four girls didn't offer up scout cookies. instead, they sent each officer an individual bag with candy and a note to decode the meetings. snickers to remind them to laugh, chocolate kisses because they are loved, and life savers because that's what police are. >> we felt bad like there were so many cops being killed. we felt so bad for them that we wanted to give them symbols to show that they are special. >> for the hug that you can't see. it's great. it's nice. >> it really does help you feel like you're doing a good job. >> the girls were all -- scorery. can't say that. developly delayed autistic. they hope this leaves a lastk impression. the officers were obviously impressed and featured a photo

9:47 am
just run drip irrigation to their plants. >> reporter: you are be leading the mini classes? >> exactly. >> reporter: here a concord -- and then -- >> between 12 and 2. >> reporter: again in san ramon on sunday. >> it's so simple. okay. in this kit what you're gonna have is you're gonna have a little pressure reducer, which you just put on your water hose. just like that. and it's connected to a little tube that runs to your plant. we have right here on a pepper plant, look at this little emitter. this is just at the end. it's a little red emitter that is just gonna drip the exact amount of water that your plant needs. and the fun thing is that it's not splashing all over the place. it goes right to the root. that's where the water needs to be. >> reporter: it's making the most out of the water? >> yes. so a kit like this, it's really
