6:08 am
on the next lifting capability. the next spacecraft to put astronauts and equipment into space. >> the fact there isn't something there to launch there's going to be a gap. from an educators point of view, is it a lost opportunity for a kid to get interested? there's got to be a few that make a career out science when they see that. >> definitely. but there's plenty of science going on with robotic missions, relatively inexpensive probes throughout the solar system. there's plenty of opportunity in the science program. >> later in the exhibit beyond blast off, you can see the capsule behind me. a capsule just like this is attached to the space station right now. if there's a problem, this is

6:40 am
a little bit there, mike. sun is coming up. we are at jack london square live this morning at the tour across the bay continues. we are going to talk to and ma she just returned from a trip from asia.yo
6:41 am
bob redell is live at the chabot
6:42 am
space and science museum. stick arnold. good monday morning to you,
6:43 am
i'm laura garcia-cannon. we are coming to you live all morning long from jack london square in oakland. a city that is bustling and a city with a brand-new mayor, just back from a tour of asia. we are joined by oakland mayor. doing great, how are you? >> i'm a little cold. >> that's okay. a lot going on in your city. i was just mentioning, you returned from a trip to asia. i understand you took some of our wine. >> you know, oakland has six wineries and the "huffington post" proclaims oakland is wine country because many good wines are made in urban areas. oakland has at least six. they are serving wines from other wineries. yes, we took at least four of the six wineries products to china with us. we gave them as gifts. we joined them at the hong kong
6:44 am
expo, which is the big food expo in asia. we served them in a reception at the california vintage bar in hong kong. >> very nice. hoping to improve relations there as well and get money coming in. the city itself had budgetary problems. you had to close libraries. >> not yet. >> are you going to? >> i'm hoping under the worst case scenario, if we don't get contributions from employees, i'm hoping we will, the unions are negotiating including police and fire whose contracts are up. they did not contribute to their pension last time were all at the table. if this city council puts a partial tax on the ballot, we could come through this with relatively lesser and less harmful cuts. >> you are trying to work with the unions. are we going to face a lot of
6:45 am
unpaid days off for city workers? >> that would be up to the unions. what we need back from everyone is 10%. it's more difficult to do with some employees than others. we would like to do it in a way they be treated like vacation days so we don't have to close down the city and they will choose their own furlough days. >> it's a tough economy. oakland had rising crime rates as well. >> we haven't had rising crime rates. >> had is what i said. >> they have been going down. >> that's what i mean, had. you are making a difference. how do you keep inching away at that. >> obviously, with the economy getting worse, there's an unemployment rate of 20% in some neighborhoods. with less programs that deal with young people, a lot of programs that deal with young people are being cut in the schools. these are probably the worst budgets schools faced in several
6:46 am
decades. i used to be a school board member. oakland, like other cities in the states laid off hundreds of teachers. that means the programs that go with the teachers are cut. >> it's tough. the youth have to direct them as well. >> we are doing our best. we try a balance. i just came back last month from detroit. in detroit, instead of putting kids in prison, they turn them over to community agencies. the community agencies are motivated to keep the kids from having to be locked up. locking up a kid costs a lot of money. in california, sending someone to cyi costs the same as an ivy league school. what impressed me about what was happening in michigan is it's 18%. here in california it is 80%. 80% of our kids are in trouble with the law again.
6:47 am
many michigan 18%. we need to look at that. >> are you happy you took the job? it's a big one to tackle? >> i say it's rewarding. you know, i have wanted to make certain kinds of changing an to be able to make the decisions that make the changes. being mayor has been challenging but rewarding. >> good for you. good for you. congratulations to you. thanks for joining us out here early this morning. >> enjoying our beautiful jack london square. >> you can't beat it. hoping for a warm up. the rain is on the way. >> it will still be nice enough to ride. >> such the mayor. such the mayor. thank you very much. we know she loves the city here as well. where are we headed next? a lot more coming up here on today in the bay. right now, i want to check the rest of the day's news with
