i'm glad you brought this up because the past doesn't need to be mroengd >> i agree the point i made earlier there so many assets but i found over the years there's not enough time spent among the various cities talking abouts regional assets. now we're not saying there are not enough regional agencies but there are and their full of brilliant people but not enough authority but trying to collaborate what those cities iowa they wish to do but perhaps there's a challenge for the region is to really think about how we can begin to think about
3:01 pm
regional think tanks with top developmental agencies should be forced to meet open a regional basis and think about the regional resources they hadn't to be located in their particular jewish regions but it makes more sense because of their economic dynamics to satisfy a particular need for the region and that particular location shouldn't suffer as some economic consequence for the fact that that regional asset is located there >> let's get mayor lee to speak open that. mayor lee >> i'm telling you bruce and cfo i didn't i'm using more and more time to participate in the regional entities like the bay
3:02 pm
entrepreneurship form have gone to give us the opportunities to talk about regional on topics we all care about and transportation is always going to be to one because we need the bay transportation system that works. and i always speak not only of san francisco but as the bay region when i going to those national cities to compete ultimately i don't necessarily care that a km company might be floekd another part of the bay area we're going to by the people from that upkeep so as a bay area we've got to keep this system that we have very strong so working on transportation
3:03 pm
issues those things bring us together and we'll share resources >> thank you, ma'am. >> so many of our realties have changed we have gear engineering helping with climate congressman and quantum commuting which is all about reducing the humans needs to participate in the workplace we see robotic machines across china and the future is really about replacing humans with machinery. we see that in the economy so i want to talk with you before bruce because the institute has been supportive of that research that is replacing humans with
3:04 pm
machinery >> thank you bruce cats. >> well, we've about that here before there are disrush active technologies in the past where it will dmich employment so i don't want to by any stretch want to talk about rofbdz for certain kinds of work but if we focus as the mayor and a connie has focused about a very different kind of committee that's productive and innovative that's resilient; right? and we begin to talk about some of those issues like the shift to 0 lower carbon economy as giving cities and metz the first
3:05 pm
advantage i don't think we should be overly worried or concerned about this technical innovation and we went off course for a very long time by this is our wake up call this is the moment we need to understand what assets and advantages we have in the world and we need to max maximum misses their opportunity. if we can stay on that focus i think we can make up the jobs deficit about 10 million jobs in the country we can have quality jobs that can help a large portion of our youth make their way. let's embrace this technology

doing a special series about staying safe. let's look at issues of water and sewer. we are here at the san francisco urban center on mission street in san francisco and i'm joined today by marrielen from puc and talk about water and sewer issues. what are things we should be concerned about water. >> you want to be prepared for that scenario and the recommendation is to have
3:27 pm
stored 1 gallon per person per day that you are out of water. we recommend that you have at least 3-5 days for each person and also keep in consideration storage needs for your pets and think about the size of your pets and how much water they consume. >> the storage which is using tap water which you are going to encourage. >> right. of course at the puc we recommend that you store our wonderful delicious tap water. it's free. it comes out of the tap and you can store it in any plastic container, a clean plastic container for up to 6 months. so find a container, fill it with water and label it and rotate it out. i use it to water my garden. >> of course everyone has plastic bottles which we are not really promoting but it is a common way to store it. >> yes. it's an easy way to pick up bottles to store it. just make sure you check the label. this one says june 2013.
3:28 pm
so convenient you have an end date on it. >> and there are other places where people have water stored in their houses. >> sure. if you have a water heater or access to the water heater to your house, you can drink that water and you can also drink the water that the in the tank of your toilet. ; not the bowl but in your tank. in any case if you are not totally sure about the age of your water or if you are not sure about it being totally clean, you can treat your water at home. there is two ways that you can treat your water at home and one is to use basic household bleach. the recommendation is 8 drops of bleach for ever gallon of water. you add 8 drops of
3:29 pm
bleach into the water and it needs to sit for 30 minutes. the other option is to boil water. you need to boil water for 5-10 minutes. after an earthquake that may not be an option as gas maybe turned off and we may not have power. the other thing is that puc will provide information as quickly as possible about recommendations about whether the water is okay to drink or need to treat it. we have a number of twice get information from the puc through twitter and facebook and our website sf >> people should not drink water from pools or spas. but they could use it to flush their toilets if their source are not broken. let's look at those issues. >> sanitation is another issue and something people don't
3:30 pm
usually or like to think about it but it's the reality. very likely that without water you can't flush and the sewer system can be impeded or affected during an earthquake. you need to think about sanitation. the options are simple. we recommend a set up if you are able to stay in your building or house to make sure that you have heavy duty trash bags available. you can set this up within your existing toilet bowl and once it's used. you take a little bit of our bleach. we talked about it earlier from the water. you seal the bag completely. you make sure you mark the bag as human waste and set it aside and wait for instruction about how to dispose of it. be very
