7:16 pm
ministrations harsh rhetoric against pakistan since the. german chancellor angela merkel says she's optimistic of for me a coalition government almost four months off to the country's general election talks have resumed in berlin between her christian democrat party and the social democrats form a coalition partners a potential sticking point is the refugee crisis and whether to allow the relatives of immigrants to join them in germany. it's come it's coming. i think we can do it we will work very quickly very intensively that's what we set out to do and you always think about what people in germany are expecting all of us always hope that politics will solve problems and create the framework for people to live well in our country i am optimistic about these talks but i also know that there is a lot of work ahead of us in the coming days we are willing to take on the work well for as we go straight. in the capital berlin and david what are the chances of
7:17 pm
success over the next five days. well there was very optimistic going in the the social democrat leader martin shultz was saying there will be no red lines and so i think everyone is realizing that if they don't get some sort of policy agreement between the parties then they will face either a minority government which angela merkel has ruled out or another election and everybody fears the instability that that could bring and the results it could bring so i think there is a real concentration of minds at the moment they realize they have to find something and these are only nick talks about talks because when we get a result there will still have to be passed through the social democrats meeting on general the twenty first so modern shows realizes that he's got his own supporters his own base to convince as well and that means that these are going to be very
7:18 pm
tough talks and there's going to be essentially a bit of a media blackout to make sure that we don't see a repeat of the last coalition talks where people were giving interviews and that was feeding into the actual coalition talks and damaging those talks so they'll just be prepared statements at the end of each day they were not expecting one at the beginning of the talks today so it's a very tough five days of course says and it's going to be very worrying because the people of germany are worried about the fact that they've now almost gone four months under a caretaker government that's the first time in post-war german political history right as we go for a long time is that some political observers say that this is the turning point for merkel what will this mean. well it certainly is a turning point mick because the polls are showing a drop
7:19 pm
a pretty significant drop in support for angela merkel so the tide seems to be changing in her political career it's moving away from her so they must take this opportunity this is the five days where they really have to concentrate but for angela merkel of course she's been seen as the main stateswoman of the european union and the woman that could give the most support to president. plans in france to try and start reforming the european union so this is at a point really if she fails to get the coalition to to form around that even germany will be in a weak position to try and combat the populism that leaves seen rising throughout europe apart from france and of course in the united states so this is a crucial time for her she knows that support is ebbing away from her and they need to make sure that they can hold a coalition together because she will refuse to do minority government all right to

channel even blue whales are no match for giant cargo ships when ships hit whales whales die there are about eighty endangered whales that are killed every year ago along the coast of north western north america and that's a lot of whales for some of these whales that are quite rare in these populations we really think that that road kill is inhibiting the recovery of slowing down the recovery of these whales commercial whaling reduced blue whales to about one percent of their or original number before killing them was banned by an international agreement in one nine hundred sixty six the whales population is increasing worldwide but given their slow reproductive cycle scientists and government officials are concerned about their survival we're at a point now where we have a chance to bring blue whales back from the brink of extinction we need to find the ways to slow ships down along the california coast researchers with the university
