two countries. we are currently negotiating a bilateral trade agreement to benefit both of our economies. our goal is to reduce our trade deficit with japan. we move trade barriers and barriers of all kinds so u.s. exports will really have a fair and very profound footing. the president also made an unexpected announcement about a new partnership with japan. a'jaen ma will join our mission to send u.s. astronauts going to space. we will be going to the moon, we will be going to mars and from a military standpoint, there is nothing more important right now than space. he did not give any details of how japan will be involved with the u.s. space program. tonight president donald trump is the guest of honor at the banquet at the palace hosted by
the emperor. this memorial day could be another long day of contract talks for striking teachers. they negotiated for ten hours yesterday, but there is still no deal. talks will resume this morning at 9 a. m. teachers in union city and south hayward have been on strike since last monday. they want a 10% pay raise over two years, but the school district is offering a 1% pay raise with a 3% bonus. >> the community members have been going directly to the school board members in the last couple of days and saying you need to get this done, this is on you. now the teachers claim $26 million is just sitting in the school district's reserves but the school district says as teachers demands cost as much as $30 billion over three years. the school district said budget cuts are needed to meet the teacher's demands and it could mean closing schools, increasing class sizes and any
increase beyond the district's last, best and final offer would require serious and significant cuts above the already required cuts and it would jeopardize students safety and threaten the school district's financial solvency. >> >> it is open again after a d.u.i. related crash. the highway was closed after a driver slammed into a power pole yesterday. that crash knocked down power lines across both sides of the road and damaged two power poles and broke open one transformer which put hazardous materials onto the road. they replaced the poles. most of the highway reopened but one lane was closed until late last night until pg&e finished replacing that power pole. close call for people when

there were two gunshots. everyone ran in all directions. the park wasn't crowded thank goodness so it wasn't a danger for people. police say the victim's injuries are not life- threatening. so so far no arrests have been made. they found a stun gun, home married pipe bomb. he was spot the in the parking lot of a pet food store yesterday afternoon. he was arrested after officers searched his belongings and made the discovery. the bomb squad was called in. he is a transients who was wanted on a felony warrant. >> the trial is about to start the second month tomorrow. the jury has now heard from prosecutors as well as defense lawyers for the defendants. they have heard from several
witnesses. we talked to legal analyst who said both legal team haves given points of views that could sway the jury starting with the prosecuting. you have family members of the victims and they are putting on the people, some of the people that were at the fire, some who suffered because of the fire. it has been very moving and very emotional the defense is cross examining to show a lot of people felt safe there. why should they be responsible for this? >> now the defendants each face 36 counts of involve terry manslaughter. legal experts say this trial could go on until the end of august. the presidents and vice presidents of the police commission are standing behind him this morning. this comes one e officers demanded he resign. chief since apologized for the raid on
was part of an investigation into a detailed report surrounding jeff adachi's death. in a statement yesterday, robert hurst invites the president taylor and that scott's apology was the mark of allier d. they would like to see him continue the reform work he started. they released a statement that read in part, "chief scott made it clear that transparency and accountability are paramount in this criminal investigation. that is why we're seeking an independent impartial third party to take over the case." they are facing burglary and other charges after speeding away from authorities in a car filled with stolen goods. on friday sheriff's deputies stopped a driver for driving erratically on highway 1 and 2nd street. authorities say the deputy was
getting out of his car when that bmw took off. he quickly tracked down the car after it plowed the teens were hurt, but everyone is expected to be okay. police would only be allowed to use deadly force if it is necessary to prevent death or serious harm to themselves or other. that is a change from the current standard that left officers kill someone if they reasonably fear they are in danger. happening today, there are many events marking memorial day, one of the largest at the golden gate. local boy scouts and volunteers have been placing flags and flowers on the graves in preparation for today's
