News Panel: Truvada HIV Drug, Challenges For Mayor Ed Lee, and more

Just a week before the International AIDS Conference takes place in Washington, DC -- the first time in 22 years that it will be held in the U.S. -- the drug Truvada has been approved for HIV prevention by the Food and Drug Administration. The news brings hope to those in high risk categories, but there are also concerns that it could lead to a return of risky behaviors. Can Yahoo's new CEO Marissa Mayer balance running the high-profile tech company with being a new mother? Mayer has proven to be innovative as a former lead engineer and vice president at Google, but there's speculation over whether the 37-year-old Silicon Valley star can save the faltering Internet giant. As embattled San Francisco Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi's misconduct trial continues this week with testimony from his wife, Eliana Lopez, Mayor Ed Lee himself is the subject of an investigation for possible perjury by the Ethics Commission. This comes as a vote on Lee's major development deal with the California Pacific Medical Center is put on hold for two weeks and he encounters a backlash by the Board of Supervisors and the public to his push for a stop-and-frisk policy.
