--'s rent control doesn't work. >> city after city, it has proven to backfire. you see declining housing stock , you see less new construction, and you see property owners less willing to invest in their properties. >> my pay never matched the increases that rent is. so yeah, i think it's great for everyone. >> now though there is concern about potential rent spikes as san jose finalizes new rules. the city plans to discuss ways to prevent that next month. along with ways to control the conversion of rent-controlled apartments into condominiums. and possibly a bond measure to build more affordable housing in san jose. the u.s. treasury department has selected harriet tubman to be the new face of the $20 bill. tubman was an abolitionist during the civil war. ktvu's cristina rendon tells us new designs are also on the way for five dollars and $10 bills. >> reporter: the face of the $20 bill is changing. andrew jackson is moving to the

taken their show on the road, but the headliner remains a big question mark for tomorrow. the curry cat and mouse game before -- staff, the only player not to walk by the media to the toyota center court, he did however find his way onto the floor and practiced in full but the prognosis is less than promising. >> based on how i feel right now, i probably couldn't play. but tomorrow, that could be different. might have to trust both ways of reporting how i feel and things the doctors and the training staff see and how to get me right and better. >> it's funny because people say, give him two weeks off. and his ankle will be fine. what about his shooting? what about his handle? players want to play. they want to feel the game, they want to feel the rhythm. got to have condition. so there's always a rest versus rhythm equation in there somewhere that we have to factor in.
>> on to houston for thursday night. they win without the mvp. >> reporter: warriors won game two without curry by a comfortable margin though there was some rumbling that the doves were a little too purposeful on a few screens. draymond green not a fan of excuses after a loss. >> end of the day, however they're going to stop us from winning, they need to figure that out as opposed to trying out -- trying to figure out whether we are a jump shooting team. how about figure out how to beat us? >> reporter: if it weren't for curry, the physicality would be a much your storyline heading into game three but it's all about staff. he does feel better now than he did before game two but still can't do everything that he needs to do at full speed. the drama will therefore continue probably right until tipoff tomorrow night. in houston, scott reese, ktvu fox 2 news. the houston area has been dealing with severe flooding for several days now, life-and- death issues that pretty much

thomas mann, senior fellow at brookings institution says he was the one who proposed superdelegates. >> sequential primaries and caucuses produce small turnouts and odd outcomes often times. and it's good to have elected officials and party officials play some role in the process. >> in the early 1980s because they saw that the initial system was allowing candidates like george mcgovern and jimmy carter who didn't really have close ties to the party to win the nomination. >> reporter: the question moving forward is whether anything will change after this primary season. such as having national standards for presidential primaries. >> i think there will be a lot of pressure on the party to revisit its rules and try to create a process that's more transparent. >> reporter: that transparency and credibility is something which experts say both parties are struggling with right now, and scholars say california's system will come under a lot of scrutiny june 7 because this
race is so tight on both sides. >> when you think about it, wasn't that long ago that this whole process changed. >> that is what surprised me. really more of a modern phenomenon of people get a vote in who the primary nominee is. >> jana, thank you. a bay area tech mobile who took a plea deal at a high profile domestic violence case in 2013 is set to appear in court on friday after san francisco prosecutors say he violated his probation. he founded the digital ad company radium one. he was arrested in 2013 after prosecutors say he punched and kicked his then girlfriend more than 100 times during a half- hour rampage in his penthouse. home security video report of the incident but a judge ruled it was not admissible because it was illegally seized. he pleaded guilty to two misdemeanors and was placed on provision for three years. in 2014, gurbaksh chahal was arrested again for attacking another woman he was dating.

with everybody else, all four games decided by one goal. tonight, no exception although it looked for a while like the sharks might walk away with this as they lead 3-0. you could make the case that the game in some ways was won in the first period. because of the job that both goaltenders did, jonathan quick for los angeles, martin jones for the sharks, both teams had their opportunities and jones was able to keep the kings of the board. i talked to him a few months ago about just that, keeping his team in it and then building momentum later in the game. >> they are a desperate team, down to-1. we knew they were going to push. we did a really good job managing it, playing well in the zone and was not called on to do anything spectacular. >> you always want that. any chance you get, you want to find ways to win. the fourth win is always tough. your desperation has to keep improving each game. they're going to come out and play a good game.
so are we. >> reporter: the other thing the sharks talked about was being rewarded for their execution. all three of their goals came on power plays, they had the same type of opportunities in game three, didn't get the puck to go in. tonight, it did. they felt like they were rewarded for their efforts and now as we know, the sharks up 3- 1, they've been in this situation before, they had a 3- 0 lead the last time these teams met two years ago, we know how that turned out so the sharks taking nothing for granted but very much would like to wrap things up friday night in los angeles. >> yeah. we don't want to be reminded of that. for sure. thanks a lot, joe. the next game will be in l.a. where the sharks have actually played their best hockey. moving along, the san francisco giants are lucky the spotlight is not on them right now. while the a's, definitely enjoying bright lights, big city. yankee stadium.

workout, which was far longer than the other day when he shut it down quickly. actually be 14 two, he seemed to be moving freely but they don't expect him in there tomorrow night for game three. that is if you take him at his own word. >> not in jeopardy of hurting myself even more. balancing that with the time, a great time right now for us to keep doing what we're doing and take advantage of this playoff run. so we're in good shape either way i think. and i'm going to get out there as soon as i can. >> nice to be up 2-0 and say, all right, we'll give him rest or whatever but it really isn't about that. it's about whether he's okay or not. and if he's not quite okay and there's a risk of him injuring himself or making it worse, then we won't play him.
>> all right. the road is apparently where the a's feel most at home, still haven't lost a single game away from the coliseum, only five games, but sounds good to say, yankee stadium not an easy place to have it your way but they have. and even if they don't have a whole lot of support, anyway, it's the fourth inning, josh reddick didn't hit it hard but hit it just right. softserve into left field, chris coghlan will make it to the plate because brian mccann didn't hang onto the ball for the yankees. 2-1 lead. 3-1 in the eighth. chris davis struggling, comes through with a two-run single, billy butler, stephen volk score, 5-2 lead. 6 1/3 and the victory. giants and a's, madison but gartner outdueled again tonight. zack greinke beat him to-1 and the giants have lost four in a row. and seven out of eight. that's the sporting life. more on that tomorrow. >> thanks for joining us tonight. good night.
oh, phil, honey, you're still up. okay. (clears throat) how does this sound? "mitchell, i love you very much. "i not only love you, but i admire you, and someday i hope to..." are you firing him or proposing to him? honey, this was supposed to be a part-time job. he was gonna be done in the summer anyway. just be direct. i should have warned him. how do you tell someone they have a reputation for being lazy? mitchell? lazy? yeah. yeah. he handed in a couple of contracts late, but i didn't want to say anything because he's practically doing this for free. i can't do this! this isn't the face of a cold-blooded hatchet man. (chuckles) will you do it? (footsteps descending) hey. (sighs) oh, i'm sorry. did we wake you up? no, i was up. (kisses) i'm worried about tomorrow. my art teacher acts like i don't exist, but i have one last chance to impress him at our year-end art fair. a few students are doing living versions of famous paintings. i've chosen this one, and i'm using my own family. brilliant, right? when i told him, he said, "that's nice, alice."
