season kicking off in less than a month the pats will begin their regular season on september 8th against the pittsburgh steelers but decorated quarterback tom brady is warning against lofty expectations after their star titan rob gronkowski retired i think so much is him expect in the ball to be a certain place and be expecting him to be a certain place and i think the chemistry between a quarterback and receiver a porter back and a tight end is so important because you know it's all the anticipation and if you're waiting for things to happen in the n.f.l. you're too late australia are on top after the 2nd day of play at lord's in the 2nd ashes test against england the australians won the toss and asked the english to bat they were all out for $258.00 the aussies were $3041.00 at the close of play spin bowler nathan lyon took 3 wickets on the day and ominously for england thinks he and his team mates have much to improve upon if you look at today i don't think we've had the best. thing. is will be exceptional

8:45 am
a bird you have no engine just you and the wind and it's very quiet and actually. it's literally flying like a bird and who doesn't want to fly like a bird you have to have a pair of. harness you sit in a reserve parachute it's a good head that of course some solid shoes so it's a cumulative little bit with the course together it's a few $1000.00 where a lot of people shy away from that expense but then you can once you have your you can use it for many many years still the nice thing about paragliding i mean you need to be strong a little bit in the arms but it's not a huge difference between men and women in these sports except maybe for the weight difference at all times we're small and every spot to fly smaller wings is a little bit of a disadvantage because they're not as efficient but otherwise it's really a level playing ground so it's other women c.e.o.'s competing on the podium than there hopefully get inspired to us participate well that's all your sports for now

a gun a controversial a witness documentary on al-jazeera. oh ok they are very very jewish and they're very erudite israel. president donald trump welcomes israel's unprecedented decision to block the entry of 2 u.s. congresswoman. example robin your geologist ever live my headquarters here in doha coming up in the next 30 minutes cleared to sail gibraltar releases an iranian oil tanker and
8:49 am
the u.s. isn't happy. also no freedom no money for food or fuel zimbabweans prepare to protest saying nothing has changed since the mccarthy era and russian pilots hailed as heroes after a flock of birds forces them to make an emergency landing. welcome to the program israel has banned 2 prominent u.s. democratic congresswoman from entering the country because of what's described as that boycott activities against israel. that they had planned to visit israel and the occupied palestinian territories this weekend both have supported the boycott movement against israel under israeli law supporters of the campaign can be denied entry now the ban comes after donald trump tweeted it would show great weakness if israel allowed representative omar representative to visit they hate israel and all jewish people and there is nothing that can be said or done to change their minds
8:50 am
minnesota and michigan will have a hard time putting them back in office they are a disgrace and a short time ago donald trump also reiterated his stand. they are very anti jewish and they're very anti israel i think it's disgraceful the things they've said you have lists of this isn't just a one line mistake what they've said about israel and jewish people is a horrible thing and they've become the face of the democratic party so i did absolutely put out a very strong statement i think if you look at their language if you look at what they've said if i ever said it it would be it would be off horrible it would be a horrible month. to put it mildly so the things that they've said oh my are really what they've said is disgraceful so i can't imagine why israel would let them in but if they want to let them in they can but i can't imagine why they would do it
8:51 am
well just 100 post poll from washington d.c. . president donald trump's dispute with democratic members of congress is just crossed international boundaries omar and rashida to leave to democratic muslim members of the house of representatives were both planning a trip to israel and the occupied west bank trump had tweeted on thursday that they should not be allowed into israel however the israeli ambassador to the u.s. had said weeks earlier that they would be allowed entry on thursday the prime minister of israel benjamin netanyahu contradicted that statement saying that they would not be allowed because of their stance on boycotting israel in favor of that stance and israel has a new law that allows them to keep people out under those circumstances that was widely condemned across the u.s. political spectrum democrats some republicans even a pro israeli lobbying organization the american israeli political action committee
8:52 am
said that that was a mistake that u.s. representatives should be allowed into israel president trump is facing election in 2020 netanyahu faces reelection in september and apparently the opportunity to combine against a common adversary was just too much for them both to resist. will president trump is by can new hampshire the state that handed him his 1st 2016 presidential primary victory and this is his 9th campaign rally this year a white house correspondent it is long for us in manchester new hampshire. event and of course we are expecting him to comment again we think the congresswoman that he's been so vocal about in the past few hours but what has he been to. walking about in the hall father he's been on stage. yes so far he has not commented on that controversy we expected that he might have we also remember one of his rallies early last month where the crowd began to chant against
8:53 am
the congresswoman omar send her back sent her back given the fact that she's foreign born as one of the members and the only foreign board member of the so-called squad on capitol hill the president got a lot of pushback for that because he did not discourage the crowd he later said he wasn't happy about it but we have not heard any of that from this crowd here in new hampshire in fact it's been much more measured in terms of its response to what the president's been talking about and as expected he's talking about the economy because he believes he has a very strong record here on the economy the unemployment rate here in his one of the lowest it has been in the state in its history so many people are celebrating that as well as the fact that the campaign is boasting of 20000 jobs created here so one of the strongest lines from the president so far has been because there are protesters here too there are many people who do not like donald trump also in the state so one of the lines to be at the most applause so far is from donald trump he
8:54 am
said whether you love me or you hate me you have to vote for me because wages are rising you're doing better in your families that more people have jobs and so there seemed to be this big a lot of tension but it seemed at moment were almost every when i smiled a little bit with that because donald trump doesn't know how to work a crowd and he's working it right now and it seems that what he's selling is his message of a strong economy in a state that will be very competitive for him when he tries to win reelection in 2020 and indeed it may be something that pleases his base certainly that is appealing to kimberly but one of the other big issues that he may be addressing a we expect him to is obviously this is the 1st rally that he's been out since those shootings in el paso and dates in ohio and there's always a solution or a possible common to changes in gun laws and he might broach the subject deceiving . yeah and so far he has not and that
8:55 am
might be because there are many people in this state that are particularly protective of what's known as the 2nd amendment or the right to bear arms in the u.s. constitution and this is a state that is made up not just of people who live in the smaller cities but also in rural parts and very protective of their hunting rights the president has sent conflicting messages on what he wants to do since the shooting that on 2 weekends not just in dayton but also possible left more than 30 americans dead he's been holding beatings at the white house trying to find some compromise signaling there may be room for a good person background checks trying to even take guns out of the hands of mentally ill people but perhaps because he has not talked about this so far in his speech he's either waiting to talk about at the end or considers that it may be too politically sensitive which are rather new hampshire voters and given the fact again that he so narrowly lost the state back in 2016 less than 3000 votes allowed
8:56 am
it to go for hillary clinton he may be calculating that is just so sensitive you can't afford to bring it up for fear of risking even one single voter of course we'll continue to monitor that event with you from manchester new hampshire thanks very much can be counted. down iranian oil tankers seas of the coast of british mission marines has been cleared to sail again the u.s. state department has asked for the detention to be extended but the grace one was seized last month after being accused of violating e.u. sanctions by shipping oil to syria iran has denied those allegations calling the seizure an act of piracy untrue simmons home small from gibraltar. the grace warner and co off gibraltar its panamanian registration changed yet the iranian flag still not in place it's thursday the start of the 43rd and final day of its detention but a major legal twist on shore in the gibraltar supreme court had a judge seeming somewhat baffled and the crew on board wondering if they'd ever get
