10:34 pm
much says it's in the government's interest to act but we see. none healthy message to the community here because we make them know that education is not the solution for this country the government sector is much bigger than the private it's tripled in size since 2003 and now employs more than 4000000 people. yet new government jobs are scarce iraq's all minister admits the country's 2019 budget didn't make sufficient provision for employing large numbers of graduates in the ministry but he says iraqi leaders are working call to create jobs in public companies the planning ministry says the government needs to focus attention on and coverage in the private sector to now the government has to find alternative solutions the ministry of planning is focused on our 2030 vision which will also create space for the private sector it needs empowerment supported by lords it is vital for the

country's development of them off the decades of conflict and political instability iraq has yet to win the confidence of foreign investors. many graduates say foreign companies often bring their own employees from abroad and demand years of work experience from iraqis before offering them jobs they hate in baghdad in the song even at night is almost unbearable but in recent weeks graduates like the have been sleeping on the pavements in areas opposite ministries across the city and it shows just how determined these young iraqis are that the government listen and respond to their demands. we are all determined. and we will not leave this place until we get our rights in recent years iraq's population has been increasing annually by about a 1000000 young graduates like one might have studied most of their lives with the aim of ensuring a better future for themselves and their country but without jobs they say that

alexander didn't fully realize what she was up against when her mother 1st began to exhibit symptoms of alzheimer's disease even though she had seen similar symptoms in her aunts they had the same kind of symptoms they were forget they would get confused disoriented and repeat just like mom now a member of the family is always with the 96 year old the one time that cause us the greatest concern is when she walked out of the apartment at my in her nightgown . it was a rapid decline for a woman who had raised 2 children been active in her church and worked outside the home a factor now known to help stave off memory loss one new study shows the average memory performance for non-working women between 60 and 70 years old declined twice as fast as women who were working outside the home 2 thirds of people living with alzheimer's in the united states are women experts used to attribute that to the
10:39 pm
fact that women tend to live longer than men do but new evidence suggests that's not the entire story and in fact women's brains are different. the latest research on the subject presented by the alzheimer's association shows that women with the disease have higher levels of brain metabolism compared with men which may account for their superior verbal memory performance what they found was that the top protein is much more likely to accumulate in these areas in women and this is important because this area is really prone to spreading the disease though a protein related to the disease tends to spread more quickly contributing to what appears to be a faster decline in women but there is an impact on detection knowing that the disease can present differently and progressed differently in men and women the medical community doctors need to recognize that in part maybe be more sensitive to the differences between how women present with early disease versus men it's useful
10:40 pm
information for families too but it's reassuring to have that information because without that information you don't know what to do as those with a parent or sibling without timers oh say i got are themselves more likely to develop the disease christian salumi al-jazeera. let's get all the sport now here's joe pass thank you so much rafael nadal has blasted his way into the u.s. open semifinals for the 8th time with another straight sets victory one in the win straw andrea s.k. became the 1st teenager in a decade to reach the last 4 david stokes reports. you know about your conviction roger federer gone the door was open for rafa nadal of new york just one set dropped all week the 2nd seed was up against argentina's diego schwartzman the shortest man on top at 5 foot 7 but also one of the fastest i was

10:50 pm
a no deal exit from the european union so let's bring in our correspondent now who joins us from westminster in london so lawrence what bring us up to date with what's been happening this thursday after the dramatic developments on wednesday. well up there i mean at the moment boris johnson is from simply trying to get back on the front foot off this absolute torrents of bad news that he's had over the last 2 days since parliament came back he just met mike pence the american vice president at downing street there was a post of a news conference which was cancelled without any proper explanation mike pence said that the u.s. was ready to a trade deal with the u.k. straight off the brics it's sidestepping the leave the actual point that he can't say that because of the congress to decide in a trade and congress has already said that say we won't do that if there's a problem with the northern border. and boris johnson's office off noon to northern
10:51 pm
england way he's going to give an address to the nation at which he's going to say that jeremy colbert in the opposition which will obviously succeeding at the moment in trying to block bricks it's at least delay it's from the end of october are all cowards because they're in the process of deciding that they won't take part in a general election in the middle of october might even delay it until after that breaks it deadline is expired and the new extension begins so if you look back at this week it has been absolutely disastrous for johnson in the last 3 votes in the commons he's also a huge section of his own parliamentary party who he summarily dismissed after they refused to back him on his on his brakes of plan and he's now lost his brother as well as his education minister the people been saying usually when people resign is because they said they want to spend more time with the families joe johnson his brother said he's doing it because he want to spend less time with it with his family so it's just bad news all round and all the momentum and the impetus is now really with the opposition. and it does look at this point all of this deadlock
10:52 pm
that still the most likely scenario at this point is a snap election it's just a question of when. yeah and the calculation because all the power is now with the opposition the calculation of them making is house avoid boris johnson winning an election and coupled with that because he's basically simple taney us house avoid to happen at the end of october the thing that worried about is if they agree to an election the middle of october which will johnson once if johnson's party wins that which he could he might simply revoke the legislation to delay bracks at the end of october and simply go through to anyway and so based on that it seems to me from everything i've been hearing from m.p.'s this morning that there the talks they're having behind the scenes with the view when they come back on monday and have to make this decision to refuse to have the election october and wait until after the bracks a delay happens at the end of october with a view to having it at some point after that the question then arises as we've been
10:53 pm
asking is well if boris johnson the said out loud i will never ask the european union for an extension does he then resign if he's true to his words you would expect him to have to do that if that happens you'd have yet another conservative leadership contest which would put election back even further so these things are all going on behind the scenes and will continue to do so through the weekend parliament will sitting on friday but it'll be monday then when this comes back to the boil again all right for the common law asli life 1st there in westminster let's cross over now to charlie engineer who is at the high court in london where judges are hearing the legal challenge to the prime minister's decision to suspend parliament. this case is starting to focus on the question of power and whether the prime minister abused his in planning to suspend parliament for $23.00 days the longest period since the $930.00 s. now supported in this case by former conservative prime minister john major their
10:54 pm
lawyers are arguing that the prime minister misled the queen in justifying the need for such a lengthy suspension he claimed it was to get a handle on domestic issues to look at the n.h.s. to start tackling the violent crime but lawyers here argue the real reason was to run down the clock in parliament and basically squeeze out any opportunity for more debate on bricks it now on the other side arguing in defense of the prime minister noise saying it's also an issue of power the power of these courts and they're saying these courts do not have any power on this issue it is a constitutional matter they cannot intervene or undo the decision and that is what the judges are going to have to look into. iran's president says his country's energy program will now operate without limits in his words it's prepared to begin work on advanced centrifuges which would allow it to enrich uranium foster that would shorten the time iran needs to have enough material available to build
10:55 pm
a nuclear weapon if it chose to in july iran abandon 2 of its other nuclear commitments that raised its stockpiles of enriched uranium iran said it would step up uranium enrichment in may but denied wanting to build a nuclear weapon. t.j. in march as we didn't reach our desired result the atomic energy organization will now immediately start what he with the technical needs of the country in the field of nuclear research and development and we will put aside all commitments made in the field of research and development all kinds of new center fuses and everything we need for enrichment that. has been granted rare access to the only a nuclear research facility in the country where enrich uranium is being used those body has this exclusive report now from the tehran nuclear research reactor. this is the reason iran says its nuclear program needs 20 percent enriched uranium to
10:56 pm
keep its 1st nuclear reactor working. the center of the 5 megawatt reactor does all the work its source is a number of chemical elements which scientists here call a fuel assembly before it came into use in 2009 iran had to import 20 percent enriched uranium from argentina you know i go back to this reactor originally used 90 percent of fuel in the past produced by an american company that it was realized reactors likeness could work with 20 percent fuel as well so to change all reactors in a way to use 20 percent field including our reactor in 1903. but since iran began producing its own uranium rival powers have objected they're concerned that with that technology reaching those higher grades of enrich uranium above 90 percent would mean being able to produce a nuclear weapon would be achievable during this tightly supervised visit officials repeatedly state iran's government is only interested in nuclear energy and not
10:57 pm
arms several nuclear scientists have been assassinated and employees here hide their identity for safety the higher quality chemical elements or isotopes iran says it needs are made here they've arrived through an underground tunnel from the main reactor by the radioisotopes are produced here in these cells when they're sent back from the reactor it is cuts in seoul number one and sent to the episodes according to the type of radioisotopes and the process continues that in some cases we have to extract the main material from the original material the isotopes then come here for further purification they are all then packed in special containers and sent to medical facilities in iran and to other countries. these radioactive isotopes can be used to detect blood clots and to treat and kill cancer cells and officials here say they're used to treat more than a 1000000 patients in iran each year the international atomic energy organization
10:58 pm
regularly visits the site and says iran has been complying with the 2015 nuclear deal agreed with 6 world powers until now it stopped after the united states withdrew from the agreement last year and imposed additional sanctions on iran officials here say the european signatories have yet to uphold their commitments and say that's why iran is scaling back on its obligations but there's another reason to this reactor was built in the late 1960 s. but the nuclear agreement that was signed in vienna 4 years ago means that it's improvements were put on hold now its future could very well determine whether iran stays in the 2015 agreements the future for this nuclear program of growth or neglect and politics over the nuclear deal aside it's that that may determine what steps iran takes next door such a pari al-jazeera at the tehran nuclear research reactor nato says a u.s. service member and a remaining in soldiers have been killed in

11:00 pm
is not party to the talks but also from the european allies who are a bit concerned about what is being agreed some people believe that the americans are adopting a cut and run policy and want to get out as soon as possible and perhaps are promising too much some of those process promises include withdrawing $5400.00 american troops and closing bases within 5 months of the peace agreement being signed in return the taliban is being asked to stop foreign fighters using afghan soil to launch attacks and to comply and negotiate with the afghan government there are concerns here about where those talks will go what is being promised and are the americans promising too much too soon mr kills out who's the architect of this agreement is going backwards and forwards he said 9 rounds of talks to the taliban we understand there are probably a few sort of other things that he is being told to asked for by the afghan government and he's gone back to.
