11:02 pm
an understaple, but we were whirps together. together--whips together, we revamped government together as whips. if we have political sciernts out there now, this is a class case of what political science is all about. we have had too little sitting down trying to work out problems. that's what we're doing now. >> what seems to be a pattern here, day 12 ended with a lot of call and very little action. john terrett are reports from capitol hill. >> it was a very are productive meeting with president obama and the white house. democrats are willing to negotiate on everything that the republicans want to discuss as soon as we reopen the government and pay our bills.

11:05 pm
impact this shutdown is having on the political landscape earlier i talked with thomas frank, he's a clo columnist with harpers magazine. i asked him who the perspective is like as the stalemate continues. >> things are plummeting in the polls, the republican party looks worse than it has ever looked. you know at the same time obamacare remains fairly unpopular, certain of the details about it. on the other hand certain parts of it are immensely popular. they have a theory that if they allow obamacare to get up and get going it will turn out to be very popular. and it will win people over and people will discover that they really like having guaranteed you know health insurance and you know i suspect they're right about that. i some people would really like
11:06 pm
that and they are determined to stop it before it gets going, that's why they're doing it. about a dozen iconic national parks are going to be allowed to reopen, despite the shutdown however states will have to foot the bill. how much tourist money they would lose. 401 parks are closed and the average tourists who go to them every day is 450,000, and the local communities have lost 76 million put together. take a look at these numbers, acadia national park in maine is losing more than $5 million the everglades, almost $4 million. and grand canyon is losing almost $10 million a day. mt. rushmore is one of the parks reopening.

11:08 pm
are already back to estes park, a relief to businesses that depend on tourism. >> that's the draw for people to come to estes. without the park estes park wouldn't be here. >> a month ago the devastating flood closed most of the roads leading here. >> it was hard to believe, it was too good to be true. >> to reopen the park taxpayers in colorado will pay $40,000 a day. some reopgd reopenings are moret symbolism. that's why taxpayers will pay $61,000 a day to reopen the statue of liberty. miss out on the tour irs dollars that could be flowing through natural attractions like this. jim hooley, estes park,

mudslides expected throughout the course of the day. it is not only phailin, but we have damage and flooding here, typhoon nari, equivalent of a category 2 hurricane, headed towards danang. about the same time we get a third storm coming in towards the coast of japan. you could see areas in the brightest red, that's where we've had rainfall well above normal and that's exactly where phailin is moving into india and that is also where we are tracking that typhoon nari to move in. as we get that area around japan we have concerns around fukushima heavy rain and flooding near mayor nuclear plant site. we'll have more on the weather coming up.
11:12 pm
feiz jalil, what is the platest there? >> well, actually late last night we were spared so we got heavy rains and then late in the middle of the night it just suddenly stopped. bright skies, daytime, half the clouds are gone, the electricity is still out in the region but what we are hearing is that most of the damage has been in the neighboring state of odisha, about 100 miles where i am. three people have died, many trees have been fallen over or flipped over. we're still not getting lots of reports because it is still hard to reach many of the communities in that area. >> we know half a million have been evacuated. do we know what's happened to those who chose to stay behind?
11:13 pm
>> what we're hearing is there's no casualties in this region. not everyone has been to every community so there's no confirmation yet. the neighboring state of odisha we are not getting reports. power has been out, even our generator has been going off and on. but we were hitting wind speeds of 140 miles an hour in the state of odisha. there is that state where we still can't get information from where we might have serious consequences. >> faiz what can you tell us about the government response? >> well, this time around it was much more in advance than it was
11:14 pm
in 1999. modern technology the government knew several days in advance and even on thursday they were evacuating people from the coast into inplanned shirlts. now al jazeera visited one of these communities and we found the fishermen were there and they didn't know about any government shelters. if they did they would go there because the people all along the coast that were most at risk even by a mild storm which might have happened here. and the thing is though there are hundreds of these communities all along the coast, hundreds of miles through to odisha so to find what happened to all of them will take at least a couple of dares. >> that raises the greater question, what are you hearing from the locals. are they satisfied with the emergency response or preparedness? >> well, many locals here weren't taking the storm that seriously. they weren't comparing this to
11:15 pm
1999. they were comparing to the storms they have had every few years. they said they weren't affected before. the crops, banana trees and rice, had been affected, we're not sure how extensive the damage is but even a mild amount of damage would have serious consequences, not only to the local economy but to the local food supply in this area. >> faiz jamil, certainly appreciate the update. we want to take you across the world if you will, we want to take you to chile where there are massive protests, violent protests in fact. take a look at this right here. police used water cannons among other tactics to force the breakup of the demonstration of the mapuche indians against the

11:19 pm
two countries have been bypassed here. the two major sticking points whether u.s. forces could carry out operations here independently has apparently been sofd in -- solved in that u.s. forces will ask for afghan permissions before they undertake any operations here and the other sticking point, president karzai had asked for security in the event it had problems with its neighbors. the two gentlemen have apparently come upon a definition of what attack means. secretary kerry says they have agreement where president karzai can take to the national simply of the country, people in disagreement that will take the relationship of the united states and afghanistan beyond 2014 when the nato mission ends. one thing that may be a sticking
11:20 pm
point when that durga meets, if a soldier commits a crime in that country, he is subject to be punished under the laws of the united states. that is what the ughts would like to happen -- united states would like to happen. in afghanistan that has not been decided yet. that will be decided with the durga but without that no security agreement, means no u.s. forces here beyond 2014. >> once again jennifer glasse in kabul. chicago marathon the first major race since the boston marathon bombing, an estimated 45,000 runners and 1.5 million spectators safe. asha kareshi reports. >> 45,000 people have signed up to run in this year's chicago marathon. police here are on high alert. >> we are going to have eyes on

11:28 pm
>> welcome back to al jazeera america. i'm thomas drayton. the headlines, the focus has shifted to end the impasse.
11:29 pm
talks came after senate democrats rejected a republican bill to end the government shutdown and extend the nation's debt limit. the senate will resume talks tomorrow. despite the government shutdown some national parks including the statue of liberty, mount rushmore and yellowstone national park are reopening. a bill to reimburse the states is under consideration. a powerful cyclone packing heavy rains and destructive winds struck india's eastern coastline. at least three people are dead. according to the typhoon center the storm is packing winds of 115 miles per hour. drones are being used in a variety of ways from reconnaissance and combat to research. the number of uses of doans
11:30 pm
grows. a big focus of drone research these days is autonomy, enabling the drone to operate on its own. researchers are making strides in two areas, path planning and task organization. path planning, determining the shortest route between two points or the possibility of detection by a adversary. task allocation, allowing the drone decide by itself what it needs to do to accomplish its task. earlier i spoke to missy cummings who has been researching the drones since she was a female fighter pilot in the late 1980s. i asked her if she was surprised by all the negative attention that droangs have -- drones have received. >> i'm not really surprised. there's an innate fear that humans have that somehow the world is changing rapidly by
11:31 pm
machines. i think it's important to recognize that people feel uncomfortable as technology starts to push forward in ways we've not seen before. but there's no argument that drones in lots of applications like crop dusting they are far superior and can beat human capabilities. and so for those applications we absolutely should replace human pilots. >> what do you think drives that fear? do you think it's a concern that these drones will spy on americans? do they have a misunderstanding what these drones can actually do? >> i think we do in america particularly as opposed to other countries. i do think we value our autonomy more and we don't like like like the idea of being on camera all the time. particularly in europe where people are used to being on camera all the time. it's not that big a deal. we're still very conservative and we don't like the idea of being on camera all the time but what i think people don't really realize is it's very -- your
11:32 pm
odds of being captured on the camera is very minimal. it's like looking through a soda straw, you have to know what you're looking for to see anything. >> do you think its use has reached the peak? >> i think i do, i think the military has plateaued and we will see the true innovation in the future happen in the commercial world. >> where do you think the drone program is headed? >> i think commercial agriculture is the next area. farmers need this desperately to find out just how well their crops are doing. i think cargo missions, i think one day fedex and ups will use drones, and needy people in the third world, very rural areas in america. >> once again mit professor mi missy cummings. we should point out she was in
11:33 pm
town to attend the aerial conference of drones at nyu. san francisco bay area, three months ago union members walked off the job, the five day strike stranded hundreds of thousands of commuters. workers say they'll walk out again monday morning if transit and union negotiate oorts can't reach a deal. in oil rich, said to be the state's largest around 20,000 barrels. a wheat farmer first found the leak 11 days ago about nine miles northeast of tioga, north dakota. the pipeline is owned by texas based tessoro. area residents are furious. they say they should have been told about the spill sooner. state officials say they believe

11:35 pm
power plant site. limestone won't let the radio activity to contaminate laboring and water. >> our studies show there is no risk to lake huron. we don't see any impact at all. >> storing radioactive waste anywhere is controversial but putting it next to a lake that's shared with the united states and provides drinking water to tens of millions of people is another level of challenge entirely.. at public hearings into the waste storage issue u.s. legislators came from flaibing michigan to express their option, neighboring people have also objected. interthey matter to us in michigan as much as if not more than anybody. we are as a state defined literally by the great lakes. >> polls show support of the
11:36 pm
plant, thousands of plant employees live here and the community actively sought the construction of a waste storage facility. >> we wanted to be proactive and take a leadership position as opposed to, you know, taking the easy way and just saying no we wouldn't consider it. >> this is canada's first real attempt to deal with decades of accumulated waste and making a decision that satisfies all sides of the debate is probably going to be impossible. daniel lack, al jazeera, k ing cardon. >> general v vu nguyen died last week, aa grand procession will eescort the general's body to

and because they bought it secondhand back in 1995 and she's been here in--with her two friends ever since, they are the last of kigale's street typists. there used to be a clattering rank of nearly a dozen lined up here, internet cafes are lined up along here. but there are still some willing to pay for this. >> i have someone looking for another job and i use these typists because they know how to write it quickly. if i had to do it myself i wouldn't do it well. >> but the three old friends know their days are numbered. they only have to look to a neighbor on that. that's why the government is sending them on a course for information technology.
11:39 pm
>> i'm looking forward to it. i'm lucky to be giving these skills, 1st i graduate i can give up this really old machine. >> still there will be premium who are sad to see them go. >> of course in the age of the internet and the smartphone this is a dying art. there are people who bring their document here because the old fashioned look they feel makes their document look a little more persuasive. >> across town the keyboard is the only thing that is familiar. none of the typists have worked with computers until a month and a half ago. now they're developing skills in the government run program, to drag r rwanda into the informatn age. this isn't just about career development though, this is about survival. al jazeera kigale. >> it was a big night for the
