2:06 pm
against his long time friend us president donald trump as i have said previously there is no circumstance whatsoever under which i will bear false witness against the president nor will i make up lies to ease the pressure on myself i look forward to her to call me and indicate a special counsel robert mueller says stone was talking to both the trunk campaign and julian assange founder of wiki leaks about hacked e-mails from hillary clinton's campaign when asked about it by a congressional committee stole her allegedly lie we had a very frank exchange and then when a person promised to tell the committee the truth the indictment says stone sent an e-mail to him saying he should prepare to die and his dog would be killed as well it's very interesting to see the kinds of people that the president of united states have surrounded himself with in this connection to the integrity of our
2:07 pm
elections is obviously something we have to get the truth about wiki leaks has denied doing anything wrong and the president reacted in a tweet again calling it a witch hunt and that there was no collusion but this is the first indictment to clearly link the hacked e-mails with the trump campaign and bruce fein says more charges are still possible you can issue what's called superseding indictment and add counts that aren't there necessarily in the first grand jury allegations so this will be. you can say you hold it to ratchet it up say all right if you don't cooperate we're going to bring in more indictments against you so that's certainly a possibility roger stone has been known for decades as a man who revels in police dirty political tricks who doesn't back down sending the message by tattooing nixon's face on his back netflix even made a documentary about him i revel in your trigger because if it were ineffective you would need me he's about to find out if he's crossed the line from controversial to

2:15 pm
a long way from the champagne and canopies that define the tao of austerity. but even some of the world's most powerful people have been humbled by this experience of life as a refugee. when a soldier is yelling at you and there is no one else around you you become like everyone else you are just human why are we here at the world economic forum it's the same goals to prove it's committed to improving the state of this world and our world and each changing sixty eight million displaced people. who sits in this forum they are the people who can shape this world now living a very different experience of reality is real life refugee muhammad her son muhammad here with the world economic forum's young global leaders program mohammed is a citizen of nowhere having spent twenty years living in kakuma camp outside nairobi

2:21 pm
the headlines on al-jazeera coming up next here it's science in a golden age to stay with us. between the eighth and fourteenth centuries there was a golden age of science when scholars from the islamic world introduced the rigorous experimental approach that laid the foundations of the modern scientific method they transformed the superstition of alchemy into the science of chemistry the chemical industry has of course reshaped the modern world giving us new fuel drugs and new materials but the methodology and principles of chemistry go back over a thousand years. and i've been researching the contributions of the scientists of
2:22 pm
the golden age i'll be tracing back the roots of modern chemistry to the scholars of the world. this is doha the capital of qatar two decades ago none of this existed all this development has only been possible because of a huge investment of revenue from oil and gas in other words the chemical industry .
2:23 pm
oil is responsible for much that we take for granted the daily life from fuel. to plastics the medicines even the tarmac road i'm driving on the chemical plants over there is processing the gas and crude oil that exists in such abundance in the middle east. oil in its raw state is a mixture of many different chemicals and these are separated out through a process called fractional distillation. the crude oil is heated until it becomes a vapor the vapor rises up the distillation towers and separate sensors different components as it cleans the fractionating tower in a modern oil refinery is a high tech version of a piece of apparatus called an eleven pick used by the golden age scientists as a distillation tool over a thousand years ago. one early pioneer of distillation was the ninth
2:24 pm
century physician and chemist arathi amongst his many writings are the earliest known accounts of using distillation to produce substances like kerosene sulfuric acid and pure alcohol this wasn't for drinking but the use as a medical disinfect. here in istanbul to piece a star studies the work of the scholars of the golden egg has brought with him and still to show me how the early chemists used it for distillation. this one is made of copper and there were others made of of glass or a world glossy yes yes the important thing about a still is that there's a hot and cold and so the whole turned is where the steam is produced it's been condenses. and is received into the receiver here. what we would need would be
2:25 pm
water. first of all usually distilled water you could use rainwater the. flue and then we'll need whatever we're going to distill for example if you want perfect roses would be excellent rose petals up i'm sure the restaurant of mind. and so the water with the rose petals will be heated up here as the steam given off it takes the scent of the rose as it reaches the bit queer it condenses back to a liquid and drips down here into this other container who are the people who are carrying out these things the chemistry i think there are two main names which stand out above all the others above all jabbering hyena. but also other drowsy jobber but high on a particular is very early on in the golden age and he is regarded by many as the first scientist of the golden age and all sorts of things as he doing many of his chemical procedures are those which may still be used today. for example motion or
2:26 pm
precipitation or distillation job or about how young was a polymath who grew up in modern day iraq and vast work covers medicine music chemistry and much more there were thousands of manuscripts attributed to far more than a single man could actually have written it's believed that many later scholars wrote under his name because he was held in such high regard whatever the truth he's credited with applying an experimental based approach to chemistry. the scholars of the golden age began applying the scientific method to chemistry by which i mean they were conducting experiments in a way that was a big leap from the pure philosophical thinking of the eight weeks but to conduct
2:27 pm
careful experiments they. operates much of which hadn't even been invented at the time and for chemistry in particular they need to hone their skills at the last blowing and glass making and so i'm going to meet a man who's going to show me just how difficult or easy it is to actually carry out that skill. so i want a. smiley. the kind of to start the. ball. some looks for. making sure. they have a name in a awful. lot of this is. the
2:28 pm
wrong one. of the. left as. the number. on the mount although. if joe was making it back in the eighth century he certainly would have been doing it this way the sort of gloss they would have used one thousand years ago would have been very different they would have put this and they did all the other ingredients into these options and just cooked them a bake them until they melted so although they did have glass blowing to shake the molten glass they didn't have something with such high temperature like this. jetta
2:29 pm
of gas here. should clinch. well that's pretty remarkable my own a little bit. although job i'm highly on and those like him are performing experiments and perfecting apparatus the work they were doing was very much a mixture of chemistry and alchemy indeed the arabic word for chemistry is l. kenya from which the word alchemy is derived but whereas modern chemistry is a rigorous exact science alchemy is associated with superstition a magic the l. commis main goal was to turn other metals into gold to his followers job in high yarn was known as. the mystic because they believed his work was no different from
2:30 pm
sorcery even today some chemistry can seem like magic of those or chemistry student and she's going to help me with some demonstrations that i guess could be used as part of a magic show i'm going to turn these callous liquids black simply with the power of my mom. writes i think. and. we go. so this is a chemical reaction to. these
2:31 pm
reactions we know there's a chemical explanation for what's going on but what we call chemistry has its roots in the alchemy of the golden age. so. to what extent was their real flaw and it's being done in amongst all this mr mysticism and alchemy. jim i don't see a contradiction between science and alchemy. rather i see a synergy the one feeds on the other quite often and that you could say about every period great period of scientific breakthroughs you said of the greeks you could surgically lots of lots of middle ages you could sew to burn a sauce or leave it was that newton was was involved in alchemy that's my sigs on the real thing.
2:32 pm
the early alchemy school obsessed with turning common less valuable metals into precious gold job out of an eye on a particular was obsessed with trying to dissolve metals and that led him to research all different kinds of suits but gold is notoriously difficult to dissolve so i'm going to buy a small amount of it and see if it's possible. i just didn't make can we do them at that. job and nothing they can. and is there nothing political emilius the dozen or so we have how to live the head. of more just to have the next you know center men who are. not that hot on the end . and i'm loving this but it has a commission you didn't. ever complain about and you have been there kind of if you
2:33 pm
want to on in the. last one job and keep going. and live in the head it's ok to. run the government so elect a disco lead. figure which i'll tell you what i mean it's a lot and i figure i shall look at it it is shallow and so bizarre let. me through my experiment to dissolve is professor house about. what the hell i need your chemistry expertise here i've got this gold coin and i wonder is it possible to dissolve gold berry very difficult i don't like all noble metals is relatively unreactive but the act of towards acids is only one assets that can really do the job which is this one. which means kingly water and it's called can you.
