7:47 am
direction and pick up all the dust in that square foot area. >> reporter: once those results come back, it's the ty's job to get the landlord or property owner to cooperate in getting rid of the lead hazard. >> we have 85% success ratio in working with the owners. cooperative compliance model that allows us to work with the property owners in a collaborative way to make sure that the homes are fixed. >> reporter: with the help of grants from hud, alameda county can offer the property owner $10,000 per unit to remedy the issue. they are looking to explore other options, too. >> there are discussions underway with oakland. as far as exploring the possibility of some type of universal testing requirement for high communities. >> reporter: right now pediatricians are only required to test at risk children at 12 and 24 months.

9:17 am
just shocking, stunning for many people in the bay area. the bay area tending toward more the democratic candidate. i think was a really interesting time to have an exhibition that's talking about these themes of equality and social justice and you know violent rhetoric and the things that were part of the whole iraq war experience. >> it keeps coming up and it keeps being in our discussion about moving ahead. in terms cure rating this as students. the bay area has this amazing art community. to see how that is displayed in order to increase the conversation. what feedback have you gotten since it opened? >> we've gotten great feedback on the show. in fact we created an interactive place at the end of an exhibition for people to weigh in with how they felt about the exhibition they just saw.

9:48 am
them. the couch dropped and rolled over and crashed through the top of this rv that was parked inside the warehouse. firefighters used power tools to cut into the rv. when they turned over the couch they found the two bodies. >> almost looked like they were -- that they knew they were going to die. so he was embracing her for some weird reason my mind goes right to my wife and that's what i would do in that situation with my wife is protect her. to the very end. that was a really hard one. that's exactly what he was doing. he was protecting her to the very en arm inm. one point lieutenant tate walkedo this room and shined his flashlight and for a brief moment he was horrified by the arms he saw hanging from the ceiling because in the dark >> all of a sudden i saw a hand
