supply line from earth. you have to be resourceful. >> this honeycomb like structure was built by a robotic picture. they added water and salt turping it into concrete. they say it could be done on the mon and form the base. >> reporter: the team say using a robotic vehicle to mix and smooth into place the concrete would be faster, cheeper and safer than using astronauts. if you build it with normal technology technolo technology, you have to bring it all to the moon. in this case you send a 3d printer and you use the dust to build the moon base around the
8:25 am
machine. >> reporter: the concrete shield will protect the mission were meetior impacts and block radiation. >> on certain parts of moon and mars water exists. that makes resupply easier for future astronauts. if the resources are there, take along the technology. >> we will not set up manned bases on other planets or the moon for tech aids. when we do, new and innovative ways of building will be substantial if we turn science fiction into fact interesting lay that moon base is not the first attempt to apply 3d printing it the united states. the international space station welcomed a 3d printer sent up by n.a.s.a. >> it's a tiny line item.
8:26 am
on page 616 of the massive federal spending bill. it's important to the bigger bangs, that cop of morgan chase rang congress asking them to pass it. that and more in weekend politics. and and miss world to be crowned in london. does anyone care. why it is a shell of what it was in its heyday, and the push to bring back a bigown era. >> japanese prime minister is speaking now, shark. polls showed a few short hours ago. it looks like shinzo abe may have gotten the victory that he was aiming for. stay tuned. madoff's secretary. >> an unimaginable story of betrayal. >> they lived this incredible life. it just never occurred to me that they were living on the dime of the clients. >> greed... >> bernie was stealing every nickel but he wasn't trading anything.
8:27 am
>> ... and entitlement. >> you took my grandchildren's future away from them.
8:28 am
>> a deal went against they're own government >> egypt mismanaged it's gas industry >> taking the country to the brink of economic ruin >> this is because of a corrupt deal to an assigned to basically support two dodgy businessmen an israeli one, and an egyptian one... >> al jazeera exposes those who made a fortune betraying an entire nation >> you don't feel you owe an explanation to the egyptian people? >> >> al jazeera investigates egypt's lost power on al jazeera america good morning to you, welcome back to al jazeera america.
8:29 am
thank you for joining us this sunday morning, i'm morgan radford and these are the top stories - determined voices filled the face's capitals and cities across the country. they are demonstrating racial profiling. the march was the largest we have seen in weeks. that is since the grand jury decision involving the police use of deadly force against unarmed black men. an american in north korea had choice words. it benefits the wealthy. it's not clear whether it's been used by propaganda. his mother says he suffers bipolar. a sigh of relief as government agrees on a bill to stop the shutdown. most of the government will be funded through september. it received strong push back from democrats.
8:30 am
we take a close look at the deal with the banks. >> reporter: it's an item in the spending bill, so important to the nations big banks, jpmorgan she have. he personally telephoned lawmakers. buried on page 616 of the bill is a bombshell, a profession repealing. it will prevent banks from leaving tax payers on the book. drafted reports with language coming from the lobbyists, had opponents in the senate firing foul. >> wall street and the work of other companies can continue to be engaged. der rif tifs on the future
8:31 am
health of the mark. the twitt meltdown. it was designed to make sure the banks do not put taxpayers at risk. >> if they have action to the bailt out money. they are likely. the white house does not support rolling back protection. it is willing to live with it to get a spending bill passed. on balance. the president is pleased with what is offend in the proposal. >> banks lobby congress to repeal elections. with taxpayers bristling. provisions that could invite a wall street excess is a bitter pill for many to follow all right. so the spending bill is first up in the weekend politics segment. joining me is basil olympical, foler aid to hillary clinton and
8:32 am
columnist at the hill. and strategist and cole some unfortunate bill o'reilly. before we do anything, of course, i have to take you to ted cruz and mitch mcconnell on the senate floor, take a listen. >> if you believe president obama's amnesty is unconstitutional, vote yes. if you believe president obama's amnesty is consistent with the constitution, vote no. >> attacking the pending legislation on the grounds, the protect acted unconstitutionally. the junior senate is wrong, wrong, wrong. >> as i read the tea leaves here, is ted cruz giving mitch mcconnell a dose of what he has to face in 2016. it is important there's a ted cruz in america, someone na plants the flag and puts the edge down saying this is right,
8:33 am
this is wrong. a lot agree with the tactics. he makes good points. john boehner and others disagree on how to get there. they may, you know, have learnt to keep the pattern dry. they may want to rate for the senate to come in. cruz is here to stay. he'll say what he wants to stay. it is important for them to be out here. >> by planting the flag in the ground, does it make it endearing to hard-line conservatives. or does it make it an annoyance. >> if you look at the spending bill, it's a bill that favors the moderates. there are democrats on the far left that don't like the bill. i think he's planting the flag. he is trying to govern from the far right. the right need a champion that is true, as you see rand paul move to the middle. i don't agree with a lot of
8:34 am
things that he says, but i agree with my colleague that there needs to be a voice on the right. i don't know how successful he'll be that voice. >> and whether he puts his hat into the ring. >> as there needs to be an elizabeth warren on the left. >> let's listen to what elizabeth warren had to say. she had strong thoughts on the issue. >> the provision was flipped in at the last minute it benefit wall street. it was written by lobbyist for city corp. that provision means big money for a few big banks. >> how embarrassing is that for the white house, that the democrats broke ranks? >> it is embarrassing. and i tell you if she runs for president, this will be her moment. she is seen as the champion on the issue in terms of income and equality and the progressive movement we see on the left. you saw former obama staffers
8:35 am
leave to create a campaign going forward. >> will it be a moment to hurt her, the first attack that the republicans will use. >> they'll attack her. that's fine. she wants the attack. it gets her out there talking about the issue further. i think she is right on this issue. i don't think it hurts democrats going forward. i think the far left has enough ammunition to make more noise. >> what do you think. i don't think it's right, it doesn't hurt the democrats. you have liberals, conservatives and the populist theme. that is what elizabeth warren is striking and ted cruz. both sides want the populist middle. crony capitalism is unfavourable in america. polling terribly. republicans oppose it, as do democrats. it's a potent force to move.
8:36 am
i think that is what warren is going after. she's smart to do it. republicans will go after it as well. >> quickly, to the point you made, it's about senate democrats not the populist language, we are talking about senate democrats. elizabeth warren is not talking to them, but the democratic view. >> mitch mcconnell walked away on friday. a deal is on the table. how embarrassing that ted cruz pulls it in. that is what he's reacting to. ted cruz will pull it from under the sleeve. it's the way... >> that's when we expect the unexpected. >> i don't think mitch mcconnell was surprised. he may have gone away and thought he would have a nice weekend. i am sure he was looking over the area. >> we talked about warren, and what it means for her in 2016.
8:37 am
what about the contenders. he was talking to a florida tv station, he plans to release an e-book. does that put him past the point of dipping his toe in. >> a little bit. it's clearly an indication that he is serious about moving forward. i don't think he gets a coronation like his brother, people moved out the way for george w. bush. conservatives are upset with him over common core. but i think he's clearly taking a step forward. that's a fairly bold step to take. >> what about mitt romney. mitt romney came out and said they came for me. they are going to come for him. does that make his dis vulnerable seems like he might be thinking that. i believe he's thinking about it
8:38 am
when romney ran it was after the financial collapse, there was a lot of attention, how much money he made, the dog on top of the car. i think that was a little bit. he is vulnerable there. presidential campaigns are about movement. i don't see jed bush or mitt romney creating a movement. george w bush created a government. i don't see any of the candidates creating the movement. >> i think the two poaching each other's constituencies, they are going after the same voters. whether both jump in or if they do, whether they'll remain. >> are you past the point where democrats will be comfortable. >> i don't think wall street can condemn democrat.
8:39 am
they give more money to the democratic party, and they got a big concession. i don't think the democrats can take the swipe. do you think what we saw that wall street was the winner here? >> i think wall street was a big winner. even though the spending did allow for some spending into next year, we see that obama care will be funded. there was no roll back of immigration which in the short term is good for the president. >> it gives the immigration reform a breather to move to february. i think the real fight will come on that. that's what john boehner is explaining, his tactics are different, he wants to have both sides of the capital. >> body cameras, that was not
8:40 am
funded. it's interesting the bill has so many pay offs in the months to come. the map that got 11 nods in the primaries, rick santoro. i think he can do well. he did well last time. from what i understand, what rick is looking to do is to move into that populist territory, move into the ground that sarah palin owned for a long time. that can't be good for the republicans. >> that's important. i think that - his plan, if i understand it right. it is to move beyond that and not harp on the issues. which is locking him in too tight a box. he's a tall sented guys, he's a good spark. the republican primaries are
8:41 am
looking at the rodeos. what do you think, are we looking at the 2012 remake. that it can prolong things. >> it seems like it. what is interesting is it is more conservative than a good chunk of the other candidates. i think the republicans have a great opportunity to grow the party and put strong immigration parties ahead. i would be interested if santiago is trying to pull them back. >> is santor um the area where the government has to go. >> no, he's sort of a relic of the past. but similar to ted cruz, he represents a good chunk of the constituency. i don't know if he gets out of the primary. >> thank you so much. well, the world's most beautiful women competing for the title in miss world.
8:42 am
whether the competition is relevant, or sending a message to people across the globe, if they look for a debate. it's the world's biggest pageant. with more than 120 nations competing for the crown. c >> reporter: it began 64 years ago, and over the years underwent a series of make overs. nowadays it's as much about raising millions for charity as it is about perfect civils and swim suits. participates have to face tough questions from journalists. >> there's a lot of pressure on young women to look good. do you think it adds to the pressure? >> i think it's important for young women to be themselves, really. i think, you know, if girls want to dress up or if they want to put on make-up and do their hair.
8:43 am
that's fine. >> the core essence of miss world is beauty with a purpose. i would like if people in india appreciate it and encourage girls. >> miz lebanon, do you think that the competition has relevance today, internationally. >> yes, sure, of course because it let's all the nation meet together, they are united to show beauty and peace all over the world. >> thank you for your time. i know you have to go back to rehearsals. it's down to the judges to work out who will be the fairest of them all. the event faced criticism in recent years, and some question wh it has a place at all. >> there's never been a miss world winner over 20 stone, or in a wheelchair, or who didn't fit an incredibly narrow dress and definition of 21st century
8:44 am
beauty. >> miss world's been called exploitive and degrading to women and has a global audience. some want the contest to be confined to history. many remain under its spell the first compete illegals in 1951 saw 26 women compete for the crown. today there are 125 contested. speaking of contestants, the big et cetera award in college football was presented last night. ross shimabuku has more. >> i'm smiling from ear to here. fellow hawaii islander. >> you are from hawaii. >> first heisman trophy winner from the 50th state. >> praud day. >> first from the university of oregon to win the coveted trophy. >> the winner of the 2014 heisman memorial trophy is markus mariota from the
8:45 am
university of oregon. >> he took the biggest honour, capturing the heisman in a land slide. he put up riddic use louse numbers, he was emotional when he accepted the reward, thanking his team-mate, coaches and parents. >> mum, dad, family, thank you. thank you for sacrificing and providing me and matt every opportunity. words cannot express what it means. >> i talked to my buddy who trained him in hawaii, and said the kid is respectful, humble, signed autographs for all the kids and a great ambassador. >> a proud member. congratulations to hawaii. thank you ross.

8:47 am
8:48 am
hook. two years ago today a gunman walked into the sandy hook elementary school and shot 20 children and six teachers. the parties are getting ready to sue the gun manufacturer bush master and are expect to announce the lawsuit tomorrow. across the country there's a kak af one of voices calling for app end to gun violence, many are taking the guns and making them into a powerful exhibit in this new orleans art gallery visitors are greeted by
8:49 am
guns. some pointed towards them. in one a jar filled with ammunition and a back wall. each designed to tell a story or make a statement. >> there's 33 individual artists and 33 different perspectives on the issue of gun and violence. new orleans ranked as one of america's deadly cities and is a reason the gallery owner created guns in the hands of artist. >> reporter: we have conversations about the second amendment, murder, and the solutions, and about who cares. the rtist from around the countrized decommissioned firearms around the streets. he had to work closely. we walked in. you want to do what with the guns. i met with officers from the evidence det and went and
8:50 am
collected 186 guns. >> the chain is made from slices of the barrel of a shotgun. snow more than 20 years ago. she found strength creating spawns of correspondent. if you ask the question. there's another person on the other side. another piece, one hot month using guns superimposed over faces, representing where someone was murdered every day. >> you see the guns and the people. then you realise these are habit u air yeas and taken as a whole piece, it's a month of death. i'm not trying to give you an answer. i'm trying to encourage you to look for your own answers. >> some messages are clear. there's a map of new orleans featuring the names in red, and on bullets...
8:51 am
>> under six years old. what a happening in this country that this happened on a regular basis. >> this has become the most popular to date. jonathan stresses this is not an antigun exhibit designed to push discussions surrounding guns outside the arena. he says the conversations could happen in a room filled with art. and that's a step in the right direction eric's son and daughter survived the shooting at sandy hook. and is a speaksman for the newtown action alliance. thank you for joining us. first off. have you a 12-year-old and a nine-year-old there, how is four family coping. >> at the time things have gotten better. it's changed a lot of things about what we consider entertainment. it was closer.
8:52 am
it was a first crayeder. and people would remember the tragedy. she was in the first classroom. she was fortunate enough that her teacher had the presence of mind to give the children a tiny bathroom and they were spared. >> we saw and heard things that seasoned responders, many of them could never could back to work. imagine what it does to a choold in first grade. >> how is she doing. >> she's doing better. both had to have extensive psychological counselling. after about a year lawyer n was released. we'll keep an eye on her. the psychologist says that she's doing about as well as can be expected. >> you said your son, dalton, was siding in the gymnasium.
8:53 am
>> that's correct, he had to hide in an electrical closet with an aide and one of the other students. like i say at the time, anyone who had a child at school that day was at risk because had the gunman instead of going left decided to go right, he would have went into an empty cafeteria, and the gymnasium where my son was located. there's a terrible feeling as a parent that you do all the things you can to keep your children safe and something like this is out of your control. >> it seems beyond a parents worst nightmare. speaking of parents, have you spoken to the parents that did lose children. >> we have spoken to some. out of respect for their feelings, they handle it a different way. the one thing they share in common is the need to tell their own story, and to, you know, keep the details of their perspectives and experiences as private as possible, and
8:54 am
released on their terms when they feel it is appropriate. >> what about the community as a whole. how has that conversation changed two years from the shooting. that's a delicate conversation about violence and shooting. how has it changed. >> i'll saying it controversial, there has been a lot of talk in the media about how strong sandy hook is and how what does not kill us makes us stronger. sometimes it leaves you broken. there's a lot of strife in the community, with something of this magnitude happens, no one knows how to deal with it. the locals did the best they could, state officials did the best they could. everyone is coping in their own way. i have social media connections with some parents. we knew them before the
8:55 am
shooting, some after. a lot of the children were at our home. there's a lot of debate. when we go on and do a programme like this i try to be respective of everyone. since the shooting, we have become a vocal advocate. you were and are a lift gun owner. >> i want to correct something that you said. i don't consider myself a drug control advocate. i'm not trying to mince words. i consider myself a gun violence advocate. i don't think taking guns is feasible. when you look at the level in the united states and compare it to other countries, where the only country that has the levels
8:56 am
of violence, there is a better way. it will require us to have a frank discussion. >> discussion that continues. thank you for joining us. our best for the families of newtown and for your family. >> there's serious precipitation headed to the midwest. meteorologist kevin corriveau has the latest. >> that's right. the storm system that came across california moved across iraqis. down here to the south, parts of oklahoma. kansas and texas, they'll be thunder storms later on today. that's one thing that we'll be watching. we have aerial pressure. it's dominating, acting as a bit of a buffer. making the showers and thunder storms every day coming in. you are waking up in omaha, at 55 degrees, it's causing a
8:57 am
problem in terms of fog, this area, and bringing down visibilities. we talk about a mile, half a mile visibility, and that will stay into effect all the way into noon today. >> thank you so much. >> and a meeting of argentina's red head for the red head club conadvantages. look at that the country has the most redheads, that's because of the many europeans that mying rates. >> it gives them an opportunity to share. that will do it. thank you for joining us. in two minutes, live from doha, the latest on parliamentary elections in japan. see you back here tomorrow at 7am eastern, and here is an image we leave you with of secretary of state john kerry arising in italy a few minutes ago as he prepares to meet with the counterpart. you can follow us online at or twitter.
