an effort to prepare for the worst. it involved ems, regional medical centers and volunteers with these fake injuries. the scenario was a bomb exploded at a hospital. >> this is all about unified command. all about being able to talk with each other. being on the same page. be able to respond to emergency situations in an organized fashion. >> it helps agencies better coordinate with each other during real emergencies so everyone can pool resources and deal with mass casualties like with these volunteers that are pretending to be ill at a more efficient pace. mechanics on bikes to fix your car. since the streets are congested, instead of dispatching a huge tow truck, aaa will send out mechanics on bikes. it coincides with bike safety month. aaa says 60% of the calls in san francisco don't require the

art and hollywood memorabilia was to be housed at chicago's lake front. after he was rejected by the police sido. now the site is locked up in a legal battle. the mayor has reached out to him to propose putting his displays on treasure island. >> that island is only connected by a highly congested bridge but if we could have enough draw, we could get a robust ferry service that would be a boon to all the residents of the island as well as visitors. >> talks between the mayor's office and george lucas described as being extremely preliminary. los angeles is also trying to secure a site for his selection. how about a dim sum date night? you can now make a reservation. the restaurant has changed its long-standing no reservations policy. the popular dim sum chain opened
