and washington, d.c. presidents trumlks with china continue in a very congenial manner, there is absolutely no need to rush. the talks wrapped up just hours after the white house raised tariffs from 10% to 25% on $200 billion of chinese goods. they today officials said the ministration is preparing for 25% tariffs on all other chinese imports that are not already subject to taxes worth about $300 billion. the trump administration says it's trade policies are boosting the economy.>> it's also been because we have been fighting for the free and fair trade that frankly has been missing from our country into many relationships.>> the two sides have some wriggle room since the tariffs don't apply to goods shipped before today, but that give negotiators about three weeks to reach a settlement before new shipments start to arrive in the u.s.
the cost of import taxes are often passed on to consumers, some imports that could be affected include furniture, luggage and seafood. also items like refrigerators, freezers and air-conditioners. auto-parts, lumber and stone products could also cost more and despite the tensions the rocky week on wall street ended with a late rally. the dow rose 114 points, the nasdaq was up six and the s&p was up 20 points. the global impact of the escalating war is being felt at the local level here and we found out the hiking tariffs will hit local bike shops. >> we have recently gotten emails from our vendors notifying us that with this tariff increase everything in the industry is going to go up. >> reporter: downtown bicycle express is a five out of six
products sold in their store are imported from china. the label made in china might better read cost more because it's from china. a strategic management professor.>> that means the prices for many different products rise dramatically, products from china become uncompetitive with products from other countries and companies that do everything from semiconductors to bicycles wind up paying a huge premium on stuff that they really need.>> reporter: in total there are 194 pages of products impacted by higher tariffs on chinese goods. some such as toddler highchairs or infant walkers are exempted but others from luggage to auto- parts to furniture will cost more. for bicycle express rising costs will be passed on to customers.>> i know we will end up having to charge more for bike parts because the products will cost us more.
>> consumers say with bay area costs driven by housing continuing to climb and increase to maintain their bicycles could push them to the brink.>> i'm already paying for everything. i really don't have too much money to spare.>> reporter: experts say of consumers don't start to change their spending habits the result could be a slowing economy and less opportunity for existing businesses and new businesses hoping to get in while things are good. >> it can do terrible things for the economy but it won't do terrible things for the economy if it lasts a couple weeks, it will do that if it lasts months and months.>> reporter: businesses and consumers hope shared pain will lead to de- escalation and a removal of all tariffs. shares for uber stalled on wall street to the closing below there $45 shipping price.
still the right healing company raised more than $8.1 billion giving the company an estimate of market value of $82 billion, that's five times more than its rival which went public six weeks ago. some analysts doubt whether ridesharing services will ever make money but others are looking for the future.>> we believe that uber will be the amazon of transportation.>> it is usually a good time to be cautioned. >> the expected ipo follows a turbulent week for the company including a driver strike in the bay area and elsewhere over demands for better pay. still joining us our financial expert from morgan stanley, ridesharing companies are a big business these days. however these stocks have stumbled out of the gate. what is your thought on this because uber is a much bigger company than lyft.>> this month
alone we have had 20 ipos, all disruptive technologies. so when does everybody want to get in these companies and sometimes they get disappointed if they come out at a price that goes down like we saw today, people go into it because they have a perception that they can capture markets globally and a lot of these technologies have the opportunity to do that. anybody who is investing in those, if you are looking for a quick return it might not happen. you have to be looking at long- term vision of the company. that's why they are trying to get money to enact that law.>> we see that the company is losing a lot of money i think they lost in the billions but they also made money, plus uber is around the world. is this one of those things that you go and long term, is that what people should look at when you look at investing? >> this is the year of the unicorn, they don't exist it's
a fantasy so a lot of these disruptive technology companies that are coming out have really good business models but are not profitable. kind of like what amazon was at facebook. but you make an investment because you have a vision they are going to do well out in the future.>> we see the ridesharing vehicles all the time it looks like it's at some point going to make some money. just how many people are participating.>> it's a very scalable model. i was in moscow about 20 years ago and i saw a young person raised their hand on the street, a car pulled up they had a discussion and they got up and went away and i asked my friend what that was all about. they said very few people have cars and if they do they can make some extra money right after the fall of the economy. here it is fast-forward today and it is very scalable because of the apps that we have, it enables the business model to be expanded to anybody.>>
scaling is when they have people taking to places, they have uber eats now, these delivery services. let's talk about the chinese terrace now this will affect anyone if you want to buy anything, were already paying more because of a 10% increase on tariffs and now we are going to get hit with more, what you make of all this? >> china is a little scary because when we drew a line in the sand today and said the next 200 billion of imports were going to attach to 25% tariffs, when i look at the list of imports they are all things that we use in manufacturing, there are ball bearings. mechanical equipment, the cars and refrigerators you talked about. they are all things we don't produce here so regardless of a tariff we are going to be paying 25% more for these items because we need them. so that's going to increase our cost and that is pretty much guaranteed based on the list of items subject to tariffs.>> how long do you think this can
continue going?>> we want to dance with them and they wanted to dance with us. these are the two largest economies, china and the united states. china has a huge middle class and will probably supersede us in the next couple years. it's in everybody's best interest we get along. it's a global economy, this is disruptive even though we have to address the tariff issue. this goes back to the 1700s. this has been an ongoing debate with countries over the years but we have been on the wrong side of it. it's creating disruption.>> we are both powerful economies here. something will be worked out in the long run i suppose.>> that's what the market trends at up to. because we are still engaging in talks. until china comes out how they're going to respond, then we see what happens.>> thank you for your insight in this
big topic. another laptop theft in berkeley today but this time the suspect did not get far. we were there as police detained four suspects all high school students. >> reporter: our cameras captured for teenagers being detained by police suspected of robbing a woman of her laptop. police say the woman was inside people's cafe when the laptop was stolen. >> she was saying that all of her work and travel documents are on the computer and she just needs it back. they were shoving her away and saying that they did not have the laptop but her behavior suggested that.>> reporter: they ran through the downtown berkeley station and back onto the street before police arrived. >> they tried to threaten me to

in prison. and ultimately sparks a conversation about rich restorative justice measures for teens. a suspected arsonist is in custody facing a number of charges right now. michaelis brown is accused of starting two fires in dublin before leaving eight chase and livermore. officers were called to report a suspicious vehicle, that's where police said rounds at cars and a building on fire. the man who owns a business on sierra court says one of his employees was there as firefighters worked to put out the flames. >> they told me you should be very thankful because another 1520 minutes this whole building across the roof could have been engulfed and this could have been a serious disaster. >> reporter: when officer tried to pull the driver over he refused to stop, the pursuit eventually came to an end but not before officials say the
suspect rammed a chp cruiser but then crashed into a gas pump. you can already see the fire danger increasing in the east bay hills, the less green hillsides turning brown already. still to come the crucial fire prevention project about to begin. it was like god opens the doors for me, here's your job, take it. and i took it.>> that woman's son was killed in the line of duty, she's explaining how she has used her son's death to make positive change. kickoff from houston is less than an hour from now, james harden is warming up there, probably practicing that deadly step back, game six and the warriors have a chance to win this series tonight but they will have to do it without

second ago, he just went and so he has finished his warm-ups. steph curry was out here a moment ago but you said it. harden and durand have been the big stars of this series so far. they will have to do it without durrant over that pain he suffered from both how many teams can say one of our all- stars go down and we have three other all-stars that we can rely on? it's a different formula for the warriors when the rent is not in. the defense got a bit tighter and the offense which is what the tradition was for the warriors everything pretty much went through curry. he got hot in the fourth quarter, some key baskets down the stretch he ended up with 25 points. clay thompson the other half went let's not forget they made it
finals and got one champ before they ever got here. also the role players are getting more and more minutes but it's something they're familiar with and something they feel they can do.>> trust your teammates, have fun and let it slide. go out there and fly around.>> we have to play well we have to be aggressive. i would like to shoot the ball better. confidence stays the same i'm display my game. i did not wake up today with extra weight on my shoulders or anything. >> one thing about these playoff games, you know everybody knows has a different personality, it will take a different personality for the warriors tonight there's no question about it. they feel like they have the
players that can get it done. they have the luxury of a seventh game if necessary. you can count on that as you hear the folks starting to get cranked up behind me it will be loud here, very partisan, the officials will be under the microscope and they will have to come out here and play the best game they can. they have the luxury of game seven if necessary.>> it seems like the roles have reversed, last year chris paul went out and game five when he had home- court advantage, now this year we have kevin durant out and game five, the warriors really need to take this one.>> the warriors have been pretty fortunate throughout this s and that first championship, the situation in san antonio where got hurt.
they have been the team that have been the one fortunate enough to stay healthy for the series and now we have to see what they can do with one of their star players down.>> check out what was in our studio this morning. visiting the set during mornings, the san jose sharks one step closer to winning the cup for the first time. then one of the western conference finals is tomorrow, that's when the sharks host the st. louis blues for game one and game two as well. good luck to them, hopefully they can pull it off. a gorgeous day in the bay today and i good day to get people to stay inside and watch sports.>> we are overwhelmed with options here.
the weather will cooperate but here you can see the forecast for tomorrow, clouds will start out for saturday, skies becoming partly cloudy and sunday mother's day clearing skies to the coast and temperatures are up just a little bit. these are all just some very tiny changes. here is the satellite, what's interesting you can see showers and thunderstorms down toward southern california. showers and thunderstorms are moving in from the south and as you can see right now we have low clouds in the coastline, low clouds will gradually redevelop as you would expect later on tonight and into early tomorrow morning. kearns numbers, we have some 50s and 60s and 70s on the board, concorde 74 san jose 71 and san francisco and half moon bay have cooled off into the upper 50s. here is the live camera looking out toward san francisco bay where we have hazy skies, looks

officers will be laid off as part of the $22 million in budget cuts the district had to make as it works to give raises to teachers.>> they wants to pay the teachers to keep them in the district. it's going to be a mess when they lose most of the security guards.>> everybody has to take a certain hit when it comes to the layoff process and were not exempt.>> there under the leadership of a police chief of the school, five years when he took over the department he had more than 100 school security offices, that number dropped to 57 this coming school year. >> i'm pretty comfortable with the redeployment i don't think it's going to be a drastic w we to figure out what is most important and i don't know how they are figuring it but to me we should be the last ones.>> reporter: the majority of the
cuts at the elementary level with little to no change at high schools, the cuts are not something he wants, just the hands he is dealt. >> i would like to maintain those 24 but like everywhere else there are budget cuts. >> reporter: the chief has the authority to move offices around if there's a greater need for security at different campuses. he says four areas where there will be no security officers his police force are just a phone call away. the oakland police department is back again and this time in vallejo. what's the city has hired howard jordan today. the new waterfront ballpark, the group was in construction. only open for six weeks but has now been closed for eight months. repair work at the salesforce transit center is now done and there's finally word on when it might reopen. alright boys, time for bed.

u.s. officials now say korea launched three missiles not due as purposely thought. yesterday's log was the second in five days the pentagon's as the missiles were ballistic and that is a violation of the un resolutions and has prompted a call from some u.s. allies for more sanctions on the north. some experts say only an increase in military pressure can bring kim jong-un back to the marketing table.>> the real question is do we truly believe that we can demand that north korea agrees to complete a reversible verifiable destruction nuclear program berefowe do anything. >> the pentagon says all options are on the table when it comes to north korea but any military response would likely be complicated by the shifting strategic situation in east asia. the regional powers accused the u.s. of using the conflict with north korea as a pretense to build up forces in the area. so-called antivaxxers have used

winds. we have all those triple digits days and the peak of our fire season. take a look at the highs, thankfully not talking about extreme heat. 80s out toward concorde and fairfield, oakland 68, san francisco 63 and pacific in the 50s. on the satellite we actually have some rain down toward southern california as we come in closer to los angeles right around santa barbara, we were s was coming for us but it has focused on the south. right now low clouds trying to regroup, expand and coverage and low clouds will gradually push back into the bay as we head into your friday evening. current numbers, san francisco 58, 70 s. toward concorde and livermore, san jose checking in at 71 and here is the live camera looking out toward the golden gate bridge, in the clear for friday afternoon you can season patchy clouds, those
