11:07 am
field. there is kind of this mad rush to get this done because you have president trump with a self-imposed deadline of thanksgiving to get all of this done. we can expect to hear more from both sides in the coming weeks. we're live in san francisco. pete suratos, nbc bay area news. >> pete, we certainly will be listening for that one. now to president trump, who is actually overseas. he actually arrived in vietnam today for the fourth stop of his five-nation tour of asia. he's in vietnam to attend an asian pacific economic corporation or apec summit. nbc's peter alexander reports da nam where mr. trump is expected to hold a formal meeting with russian president vladimir putin on the sidelines of that summit. >> reporter: president trump at dinner this evening. the first time the that president trump and vladimir putin will be in the same place at the same time in four months. their last meeting taking place in germany. on his way over to asia, just a matter of days ago aboard air force one, president trump hinted at the idea that the two leaders would meet, but today sarah huckabee sanders, his

11:13 am
over their heads. that survey is conducted by apartment list. 25% of renters are making half of what they make on rent and half of those renters are spending a third of the income. the san jose city council will vote to amend the rent ordnance. it would cap rent increases to 5% per year. overnight we looked at other rents for two-bedroom apartments across the bay area and beyond. on average, you will spend $2,500 in san jose, $2,200 in -- the afternoon ranl rent in san francisco is around $1,700. on average, new york city, renters pay about 2,500 a month for a two-bedroom. the 49ers will try to break their 30-9 losing streak when they take on the new york giants. you probably notice add low lot of empty seats and how its looked during recent games. it got us thinking, just how bad is attendance these days.
11:14 am
the 49ers claim it's not as low as you might think. that's about an 85% attendance rate when you consider there are 65,000 sellable tickets per game. the 49ers believe the shots of the empty stands are actually misleading, given the number of fans pay to enjoy the game from some of the internal cb areas. a lot of people have been talking about it and we got our first look at the senate version of the republicans' tax plan. >> it's very different than what they're talking about actually in the house. scott mcgrew, lots of work ahead. >> yeah, good morning. he's are early drafts that we're talking ou s it will be up to lawmakers to take the version from the house, the version from the senate, get them together and get them to agree. the senate version was just revealed. we've been able to watch the house version for quite some time and i know you're not following every twist and turn, so bottom line as of this friday morning is the house version as it stands adds too much to the deficit. that means senators when they get that bill can't pass it
11:15 am
under reconciliation president senate version solves that problem but delays cuts to corporate taxes. and cutting corporate taxes is the primary reason for the whole tax cut. speaker of the house paul ryan has said over and over everybody's going to get a cut, everyone, but the latest analysis shows between a third and half of middle class would actually see their taxes go up. the quick math for republicans is this, if you cut taxes anywhere, you have to raise them up somewhere else or come up with some really creative math. if you're -- otherwise you're going to add to the deficit. if you add to the deficit, the rules change and then the democrats get a change. other news, the girl scouts just committed millions of dollars to teach kids s.t.e.m., science, technology, engineering and math. there are new s.t.e.m. badges as well. you may remember that the boy scouts are going to allow girls. the girl scouts are very angry about that. this week on "press here" i asked the head of girl scouts

>> facebook is cool. that's what its got going for it. >> reporter: in the movie "the social network," justin timberlake plays sean parker. now the real sean parker is speaking out in an eye-opening interview of the site he helped create. >> it probably interferes with the productivity in weird ways. god only knows what it's doing to our children's brains. >> reporter: speaking to the news site axios says facebook and its sister a.p. instagram were purposefully designed to hook users in. >> that thought process was all about how do we consume as much of your time and conscious attention as possible? the inventors, creators understood this consciously, and we did it anyway. >> reporter: today, over 80% of americans connect on social media, but surveys show overuse can be harmful, especially to kids. negatively impacting their relationships, school

showing some wet weather for a few days here in this seven-day forecast. the rain is coming down now in san francisco, mostly some light showers and then as we look at the east bay moving over towards berkeley as well as emeryville and parts of oakland seeing the rain and moving up a little bit farther north, you're seeing some of the showers coming down. it just moved out of vallejo. you're starting to get some clearing there. we will have times of rain moving through. it won't be until this afternoon we start to see that rain make its way into the south bay for maybe 1:00 or 2:00 this afternoon, but very hit or miss activity. may we raining on one side of the town, but the other side is completely dried. we will still see this moisture streaming through with the remnants of this disturbance until about 6:00 or 7:00 this evening and then we're in the clear. for the rest of the weekend, we will have some mostly sunny skies for the most part. so we're looking at temperatures today in san francisco reaching the low 60s, mid-60s for spots like livermore, inland valleys
11:22 am
are going to have temperatures reaching into the upper 60s. once again, as we talked about the rain clearing for today, tomorrow looks beautiful and our temperatures will be comfortable, but then the clouds start to move in on sunday out ahead of the next storm system set to move in. this will start out in the north bay for sunday evening. and then start to bring some rain for the rest of the bay area early friday morning into the afternoon. rather, monday morning into the afternoon. looking at some of the events going on, the san jose veterans day parade happening tomorrow and the temperatures will start out in the upper 50s as you line the parade route and get out there to enjoy the sunshine. our temperatures will help warm things up. the sunshine will help warm things up and it will feel much more comfortable. in castro valley, we have the light parade kicking off the holiday season. it's going to be in the low 60s, but cooling off quickly, so make sure you're wearing something nice and warm. we'll talk about some other things going on or some places you may be headed.
