new questions about the safety of the rods on the new span of the bay bridge. caltrans says tiny new cracks were found in some of the rods that connect the bridge's tower to the base. almost 407 of the rods passed the test but the bases are immersed in salty water. caltrans says there's enough evidence of cracks on a few rods for them to believe there are cracks from all of them.
7:45 am
the chief engineer says he will do whatever is necessary to fix the problem, including replacing all of the rods. it depends on the results of a deeper analysis by a group of experts that report is expected by september. 7:44. in san jose, they are still counting the votes from the special election to fill a city council seat. 80% of the votes have been counted in the race for the district 4 council seat and candidate man nguyen is leading tim oroscoe by more than 13%. that's a smaller lead than last night. district 4 represents north san jose. final vote is expected by friday night. last april, there were ten candidates in the election. none of them received the 50% of the vote needed to to win. the two candidates received the most votes. the eventual winner will fill the seat vacated by chu. most people think they

7:47 am
money. 6% say they would rather be audited by the irs. >> i think you have to think about when you look at your total reward in terms of why urcareer, you know, you probably in this market, if you -- the right type of background and skillset you can probably find another job that would pay you a little more money, but is that necessarily what you are looking for? so again, bebe informed, coming to the table educated and thinking about what you are really looking for. i think that guides the discussion better. >> analysts say self-confidence is the foundation of a successful career. your professional growth and earning potential depend on not just how good you are on your job but your ability to negotiate. next hour, some advice from the staffing firm on how you can better prepare yourself to ask for the raise. >> it's so hard to do but this
7:48 am
is how you put food on the table. i have to psyche myself up and give myself a pep talk. it's hard. >> not as hard as the irs. i don't believe that one. >> right. right. >> we'll be watching next hour. >> it. 7:47. let's get you moving so you can make some money. sal is watchth roads -- watching the roads. how does it look? >> we have a problem. it just came in. there is a person reported underneath a b.a.r.t. train at the west dublin station. this is the last station on the blue line here. i'm gonna circle it. this is the -- the train was going east out to dublin/pleasanton but that means they can't turn around and go back. this entire dublin/pleasanton into san francisco line will be affected. we're trying to get more information from b.a.r.t. but they are expecting major delays. they are describing this as
