sanctions an act of war north korea's state news agency says the strengthening of its nuclear deterrent program is the only way to for straights the u.s. the u.n. impose extra measures on pyongyang on friday following its recent intercontinental ballistic missile test florence louis has more now from seoul. north korea called the latest round of un security council sanctions imposed on it as a threat as a violation of its sovereignty as well as an act that would violate peace and stability in the region it also seemed to direct much of its anger at the u.s. who led drafted and negotiated this latest round of sanctions now one interesting thing however is north korea seems to acknowledge that these latest sanctions are the toughest ever that it's faithing it called it tantamount to a complete economic blockade as not only a significant cap on petrol supplies the sanctions also call for the repatriation
of north korean foreign labor as within the next twenty four months hitting an important income source for the isolated country it also calls for an ban on north korean exports including machinery and lumber again hitting north korea's income source there isn't however any indication in the statement that north korea will change its behavior in fact the tone is one of defiance but this is very much in line with previous statements in reaction to past sanctions many analysts have come to believe that the world is running out of sanctions options when it comes to dealing with north korea now the hope however is that these sanctions will have the effect of making it more difficult for north korea to carry out further tests ok let's get some more on this for you joining us live now is young shit bomb he's a research fellow at the institute for most korean studies at your m'sawae university he joins us from seoul young is this just more talk from north korea.
i do believe so because a war does not happen unless the first bomb will be a drop either by the united states or north korea or the korean peninsula and north korea's person of nuclear weapons. is to serve only one goal which is survival of the regime if north korea starts a war that would be and of the regime and the regime does not want their result ok you're talking with some pretty scary language they're talking about who will drop the first bomb who do you think might make the first move here north korea will engage in kind of peace office starting a new year two thousand and eighteen because of it's a very important time for engaging in a different strategy is specially in the aftermath of thought graham government's
proposal of the postponing possible postponing of the joint military exercises between u.s. military and south korea and the korean military during the winter olympic games i guess the north korea is going to take advantage of the proposal and try to test the water before engaging another provocation what indicators have there been however in the past say two years that north korea is prepared to go with this different strategy that you talk about i mean arguably one could say there's been nothing in pyongyang's behavior to say that we are prepared to deescalate this highly negative relationship particularly with the united states and with the united states viewed through the prism of the united nations. well north korea is a very flexible in terms of taking advantage of all of whatever conditions are
given to a country because the goal is of unitary which is to complete here military nuclear and the entire continent mr technology including the re entry in our technology to be able to fire a missile to anywhere in the world including the main continent of the united states so north korea needs to are in some time to gather it's a breath and focus on correcting some our technological problems to move ahead toward the goal so in that regard it's a strategic call has not been changed but it the regime might feel some reason to change is the call approaches that a given situation ok we must leave the young shebang thank you very much. more than two thousand seven hundred people in turkey have been dismissed from their jobs as part of the country's least emergency rule decree soldiers teachers and bureaucrats
were sacked over alleged links to what is being called terror organizations in total one hundred fifty thousand people have been dismissed or suspended from the job since the failed coup in july of last year that's over alleged ties to the movement of the us based cleric for to the glenn turkey accused him of organizing the attempted coup letting go is a security analyst and a former turkish military officer he's also a columnist for the el mullets news website he joins us now from istanbul what is mr one trying to achieve with this. first i have to start with is there are two emergency rule in decrease issue today morning first one is the one that you are mentioning. two thousand seven hundred government employees and ammo perched we have around six hundred fifty military personnel from the army air force and they were and around three hundred fifty. personnel from gender
maria command and in this. degree say is that the projects are still going on and despite the fact that it has been almost eighteen months after the july fifteenth military our pricing the government is still inclined to prioritize diggler newfie cation of course critical cut dress down the operational effectiveness of the military so this is the first and the second one is. designing and restructuring the state used to do shows particularly in this second degree if there is an important point we said they're handing all were off to the military defense procurement system from the prime minister to the office of presidency saw in this second degree the president is going to be the last of tory to decide in the military and defense pretty clear a month you know and contracts into ok so in this decrease we see
overlapping corridor merging of these three important process is first one is the bigger than if occasion of the brokerage here and the second process is the. second message just to go back to my original point what is he trying to achieve here because some of the analysts that al-jazeera is talking to are saying look he's not even reacting to intelligence or information gathering that has been passed on to him and he's just reacting to a list of names up and across the country and also they're all. these unconfirmed reports that he's putting people who've been thrown out of their jobs they have to wear special uniforms i mean that speaks to an agenda of stripey pajamas that speaks to the second world war that speaks to constantly singling out and identifying people that only he perceives as a threat nobody else within the turkish government perhaps perceives them as
a threat and maybe their crime is primarily that they haven't gone far enough in praising mr won and everything he stands for. yes i think the issue of to decrease first one to one per you know two thousand seven hundred personnel and the second one trying to restructure the state used to to sion at the same time called this to decrease at the same time i think is the issue that we should criticize maybe because as i said before right now in this decrease on the one hand you are trying to do you know government personnel for to do. the good and if occasion efforts on those on the other hand you are trying to ask for executive power from the prime minister to the office of presidency i think this process is as i said before the leg little while there do. little vacation after and their
technical capacity building within the state institution and last year politics will want to ask for of executive power from prime minister to the office of presidency. i mean in. all we're lapping of these three processes from then and now there i think this is not. this is not good and at the end of today all those efforts will be is there. thank you very much. israel has closed the northern entrance to ramallah and all better in the occupied west bank that's the main point used by palestinians crossing into israel if all those weeks of palestinian demonstrations over the us decision to recognize to receive them as the israeli capital at least fourteen protesters have been killed in the palestinian territories since that decision was made there was also outrage around the world in the days following that announcement from the trumpet ministration hundreds of thousands of people rallied in countries across the middle
east as well as muslim majority nations in indonesia malaysia and pakistan to name but three now on thursday the un general assembly voted overwhelmingly for a non-binding resolution declaring trumps decision quote null and void but trump is not backing down he insists the u.s. embassy in israel will be moved from tel aviv to jerusalem breaking with fifty years of diplomatic convention let's get the latest now live from bethlehem and our correspondent hoda abdel-hamid what's the atmosphere like there today this christmas eve. well certainly there's an atmosphere of the fines that was earlier speaking to the mayor of bethlehem and he said we're going to go ahead with celebrations despite the fact there's been many tourists cancellations and this is really the peak season for this city said well we're going to go ahead with our celebrations we're going to show and he said specifically mr trump that we are able
to continue our allies that. are palestinian cities i wish to be intimidated by whatever is coming our way now or aimed if you turn out there's been the festive mood really since earlier this morning we had to have parade of boys and girls twenty one in total coming from bethlehem but also from ramallah from nazareth from occupied east jerusalem the one band could it make. here is the one coming from i didn't get permission by the israelis to cross into this part of the country the reaction today from palestinian leaders because they've had several weeks to jest this trump initiative and even today and yesterday the trump white house seems quite happy to continue. the embassy will be moved even though we know that mr trump will have to sign off on the keeping it
in tel aviv for at least a six six more signing. well certainly the. idea that. this embassy will move at some point it will take a few years for it to be built and everything to be done do the palestinians believe that in the middle there will be some miracle that will stop. but ministration going ahead with that move at this point no but they're certainly going ahead with their own plans which is try to get as much international backing as possible are strong of that as you said earlier nonbinding nevertheless resolution and they are now also quite strong about the fact that they can at least even though they publicly say that the u.s. has no more role in the peace process israel will not accept that but at least they will try to couldn't tame that role of the u.s.
and bring other players other mediators in that but ask anyone here and they will tell you. some point to restart oh well it's not going to be any time soon no one actually even believes that it could happen in two thousand despite the promises of president trump that he will come out with the ultimate plan well mahmoud the best answer to that was that he came up with the ultimate slap so far every speech among the palestinian. so far we hear about promises about the possibility of a peace plan that is we had together a couple together in washington but they haven't heard anything about it they would not ask their opinion and they have no idea whatsoever what that could could. do keep us posted in the meantime thanks very much and we'll have a special program for you a little later today on al-jazeera on the continuing tensions over the status of

parents we ben i'm putting new parenting content with sesame characters into home visits and ensure that the kinds of services that many proper textile workers health care workers were visitors are already providing but with very little support and in addition to this we've also i or see runs and supports preschools and center based services for children drought the region and we started to put into the. preschools and other center based service as the sesame contact with sesame characters from the region and starting to see how these kinds of stories and characters resonate with children and families and what kinds of stories children and their parents want to hear and will have resonates most with them toxics drafts is an hour and. scientific term
for the biological and physiological response that happens to children you experience as severe and forms of adversity and when i talk about the kinds of adversity that might cause toxic stress these are saying like experiencing violence prologue and poverty and the kinds of adversities associated with displacement losing what is known at trial and comforting to a child losing their home their school their neighbors their friends these kinds of adverse ease that are so common and for children who have experienced war and who are refugees these are exactly the kinds of adversity that are likely to
lead to toxic stress. a quiet revolution in the way we work is happening all around us but some leading thinkers say governments of failing to keep the public informed automation and ought to fishel intelligence are creating a new world where millions of jobs will simply disappear in the first of a five part series on a lower honestly examine the switch jobs could be most under threat and you play music who understand and. in the future is likely many people will have one of these in the. role it will sing songs and dance for your kids will tell you how to cook a meal. well teach math this could be a classroom assistant exactly but what interests business about these robots is that they can be put in the supermarkets and tell you whether your kitties will go
into the lobby of an office block and tell you where to meet your contact we're speaking to large blue chip companies who want to use them in their offices we're speaking to cab home providers we're speaking to hotels commonly factories to use in their showrooms. home variety financial organizations banks retail supermarkets quite a large sector businesses are extremely cagey about talking about their interest in artificial intelligence not surprising given that robots or algorithms could replace humans in any number of ways jobs insurance the law financial services other clerical roles are already being lost entire professions are projected to disappear. and if a robot can be designed to build a house in a couple of days and the movements of goods will be performed without humans then it's clear that in rich countries vast numbers of jobs in all pay grades could be
at risk in agriculture designers are working on a robot which can distinguish between leaves and storks to pick fruit very little appears outside the imagination some people are genuinely asking what jobs there might be less first humans actually to do and one answer seems to be things with our hands because robots don't have motor skills so things perhaps like working with food all cutting hair or gardening but clearly much of this is monotonous and it's not very well paid so who will give us money or pay for things if we no longer work or raise taxes increasingly it's being suggested that a so-called universal income may be the answer being paid not to work today suddenly universal basic in. time is a serious policy option there's lots of experiments going on as to how hard can be done what effect does it have it's moved much more into the mainstream and that i think is the consequence of all the changes that we have seen going on to provide
the united states of america every city states of america with a decent basic income one thing they're using it. would cost a quarter of a minute to spend so it's not unfeasible but the biggest question of all is whether it would make us happy or could it be that technology offers us the option of having almost all time to ourselves and if so is it a dream come true or would we get bored cautiously the world of business is asking where the boundaries are and what we are prepared to accept lawrence lee al-jazeera london and a restaurant in the indian city of chennai is now using robots to improve customer service diners order using an i pad robot waiters then bring the food to the table but only after a real person has cooked it similar restaurants have also been appearing in china and japan as well.
