5:00 am
it's just after 5:00 in the morning in washington and this is the view from capitol hill. things may be quiet at this hour but it is going to be tense later today when chinese president hu jintao faces tough criticism from the u.s. congress. it's 5:00 a.m. in washington, 6:00 p.m. in beijing, hi, i'm zain vergee.
5:01 am
watching "world one" live from london. also ahead, listen to this sound. imagine what it feels like to be hit by a wave of fast-flowing mud as the ground gives way. that's what many brazilians have just been through. and listen to those cheers for jean-claude duvalier. but how long will they last? state prosecutors charge the former haitian dictator with theft and misappropriation of funds during his period in power. and "the devil may wear prdad" but the star of the movie is about to change her slinky gown for a bat suit as bat-man sweeps anne hathaway off her feet. on the agenda today for hu jintao, a trip toll capitol to meet with congressional leaders.
5:02 am
it's going to be a much chillier reception than the one mr. hu got last night at the white house at the state dinner hosted by president barack obama. both leaders focus on promise and common ground. >> translator: in recent years, china/u.s. relations have made strong headway thanks to the joint efforts of both sides. >> it's easy to focus on our differences of culture and perspective. let us never forget the values that our people share, a reverence for family, the belief that with education and hard work and with sacrifice, the future is what we make it. and most of all, the desire to give our children a better life. >> u.s. congressional leaders won't be focused on shared val use when they meet with mr. hu
5:03 am
today. they're angry over what they see is china's deliberate policy of undervaluing its currency which they believe is taking away american jobs. cnn's stan grant joins me from beijing to talk a little bit more about today. stan, president hu has been called a dictator, a gangster. congress is not happy and currency is their top problem today, right? >> reporter: yes. the niceties are out of the way, aren't they, now down tat bare knuckles if you like. currency is number one. this has been something many in the u.s. congress have been banging on about for some time now. basically it's this, they believe china keeps its currency low to give it an export advantage and that takes away from manufacturing jobs in the united states. there's more ammunition for that argument today coming out of here in beijing, in china, they've released the latest economic figures. the economy continues to pouer ahead, growing at 10.3% for the
5:04 am
past year, 9.8% in the last quarter. let's contrast that with the united states, third quarter growth was just under 3%. so a big gap differential there. yes, there is criticism, a lot of rhetoric. they're going to beat up on china. they're beating a path to china's door, this economy continues to grow and there are 1 billion customers here if the u.s. can get access to them. zain? >> there is so much tension between the two countries behind the smiles and the toasts and all the photo-ops that we've been seeing. how are the u.s. and china going to find real common ground? >> reporter: they have to make this work. there's a lot of mutual interest at stake here. china needs a mark tote sell into. at the moment here, consumption is only about 30% or so of gdp. so the consumers here are still growing. they need to sell into a market what better market than the united states, still the world's biggest economy for miles. now, that, of course, means that
5:05 am
they need to be able to keep this relationship on an even keel. the united states needs to bring itself out of its hole that it's been in, 10% unemployment, economic growth. they want a mark tote sell into as well. what better than china with 1 billion potential customers? over the past 20 years, exports from the u.s. to china have multiplied by 12%. there's a lot they have in common. there is a lot that divides them. we've been through so much of that, human rights, of course, china's military buildup and so on. money potentially unites them. zain? >> as we listen to the press conferences, as we read the press releases and listen to the political spin, both sides are going to have here, what's important, though, is the average person, you and me and how all of this affects us. >> reporter: the average person, let's just start right here in china. 10% growth, exports, that means jobs. you know, there are tens of millions of people flocking to the cities like beijing every
5:06 am
year in china and they need work. that's why china needs to keep growing. what do they manufacture? they work in the factories, manufacture flat screen televisions, microwave ovens, fridges and clothes and the shoes that we wear. we're all able to buy those things a lot cheaper than we were ten years ago precisely because of market here, the manufacturers here that are able to produce these things with 70% of the u.s. gdp made up from consumers that be that's been good news for the u.s. in the past. now they want to get a bigger share of this pie here in china as well. >> cnn's stan grant reporting from beijing. thanks a lot, stan. thousands of miles from washington there's a young boy bridging the divide between the u.s. and china in his own personal way. coming up, we'll introduce you to an american teenager who's studying in beijing and living with a local family, embracing the culture as well. he's going to tell us what he likes about china and what he's learned. that's a little bit later in our

neighbor neighbors. let's take a look at what's next for brazil amid all that devastation. meteorologist jen delgado is joining us. >> i have to point out to you, i have been looking over the satellite graphics and the rain is shifting a bit more down towards the south. that's better news but the problem is we still have instability in the region. that means we still see the potential for storms to pop up across the region. we're talking it's the summer, that's the rainy season across brazil. you notice we have a few clouds and isolated storms pop up just to the north of sao paulo. that low is moving more down towards the south. as i show you on the graphic, this is the airy that's going to be of concern. when you add more rainfall to a region that's already dealing
5:18 am
with mudslides and landslides, the grounded is so null verbal. this is going to be a dangerous situation because the grounded is so weak. if you add a bit more rainfall, we could see bad things happening across that region. the low will be shifting to the south. the bulk of the rainfall will be mainly down toward this area. roughly about an inch of rainfall as we go throughout next several days. that is the bright news. from south america, we go to north america. for california, we have a big wind event as the winds go down the canyons they'll be intensifies. what this means is we'll be dealing with wind gusts up to 150 kilometers per hour. that's hurricane strength winds. we're talking 85 miles per hour. for all the areas that you're seeing from los angeles as well as into long beach. these are the areas that will be under the gun. the potential today for downed

covering this important trip. the south china morning post says the u.s. and china really need to work on changing how they see each other. this is the headline, "setting the right tone for dialogue." the editorial itself says this -- america's elite should change their stair row typical impression of china while the chinese must also not allow widespread and narrow-mind nationalistic sentiment to prevail. such efforts are especially important at a time when balance of powertown the two is changing. "the washington post" has this headline today about yesterday's press conference. hu jintao meets the free press. hu had to put up with a news conference for a repressive ruler facing a free press is about as pleasant a prospect as attending the nobel peace prize ceremo ceremony, it says. take a look at "the new york times" today. it's focusing on the hard-liners that exist on both sides. its headline says the rise of chinese cheneys.
5:38 am
the article itself says that americans really should not exaggerate the impact of china's currency manipulation. it goes on to say, chinese goods, mostly compete with products from mexico, south korea and other countries. it's stealing jobs from those countries more than from america. finally, take a look at what the moscow times is saying. u.s. democracy has little it can teach china. they say many chinese see their weathering of a financial kris as vindication of their own system and the beginning of an era in which u.s.-style liberal ideas will no longer be dominant. one issue, many views, your world papers today. there's a new twist in the tale of jean-claude "baby doc" duvalier. it's looking as haiti could get some of the money back thanks to a new swiss law designed to get back that stolen money.

5:44 am
prostitution scannedle is threatening to plunge silvio berlusconi's government into a whole new crisis. italy's prime minister says he has nothing to be ashamed of. magistrates in milan are investigating two charges against him, abuse of power and paying a minor for sex. at the center of all these allegation is this woman, a moroccan-born dancer, ruby rubacuori. she's claiming she was 17 years old when she met the prime minister but told him she was 24. ruby denies ever having sex with him. mr. berlusconi does not deny knowing her or that she came to his property. let's start with berlusconi himself and how he's defending himself from the allegations and
5:45 am
those wiretap conversations. >> reporter: he came out on tv last night, zain, angrily, denying everything, coming out fighting, really, to the nation. a ten-minute address which was full of rebuttals and angry accusations at the prosecutors who he claimed were politically motivated, that they hadn't followed the correct procedure, that the investigation was unconstitutional. he talks about the 150 agents that had been involved with this operation, tapping the phone conversations of his dinner guests, he said, and really implying that this was completely unfair and the kind of action that would normally be warranted on a mafia boss and completely unacceptable for the prime minister of italy. so a very aggressive attack on those milan prosecutors who were attempting to prove these two allegations as you say, one of
5:46 am
paying a minor for sex and the other of abuse of power, both centering around this moroccan belly dancer called ruby. theabuse of power -- berlusconi, according to those witnesses who were taped was seen fondling. he's angrily denied saying this is part of a political smear campaign to bring him down. >> could this sex scandal bring him down? he was a pretty popular prime minister. how badly is this going to hurt him? >> reporter: well, there are two issues here. firstly, can the prosecutors prove these charges that are
5:47 am
being built up against him? that will come down to, you know, very difficult to prove whether or not he did sleep with this woman. she says on tv last night that she did not sleep with him. he is insisting that he did not sleep with her either. and also insisting that he didn't know she was a minor. but the wider political implications for this are that all this dirty laundry is being washed very publicly, day after day, new allegations, new evidence is coming into the papers here. and even his supporters are beginning to say here, look, this is pretty strong stuff. whether or not it's true, just the idea of being associated with any of this is incredibly damaging for him. nevertheless, he's shored up his majority in parliament bigger than it was at the time of the confidence vote last year. here's the arch survivor and many feel that if there's one man who can get through this, where any other politician would
5:48 am
have resigned months ago, it's silvio berlusconi. >> cnn's dan rivers in rome. ricky gervais is speaking out again. the british comic has been defending the controversial routine at the golden globes that has so many people reacting. people are saying that his jokes were not so much funny as just plain nasty. gervais sat down with cnn's piers morguen to talk about the fuss. >> they hired me for a job. if they didn't want me, they shouldn't have hired me. >> it's a bit like inviting a hammerhead to shark for dinner and when he eats all the guests, you start complaining. >> i don't think i did anything wrong. i honestly, you know, those were like jibes at these people. i'm sure they have a sense of humor. >> ricky went on to tell piers
5:49 am
he's only confronting the elephant in the room. let's get an update with don ro riddell. >> kim clijsters and veer va zvonareva make it through to the third round in the australian open. jankovic was beaten in straight sets by china's peng. no such problems for the men's number one, rafael nadal, the spaniard remains on course for a fourth consecutive grand slam title thanks to an easy win over ryan sweeting. it only took nadal an hour and 30 minutes to set up a third
5:50 am
round clash. safe to say, nadal is not stressing too much about the preparation for his next match. >> what can i do different? rest in the hotel? maybe going to go to -- >> tomic says he may prepare by going bungee jumping. and how the mavs are enjoying having their star man, dirk nowitzki, back from a knee injury. xoed 14 points in dallas, making a big three-point play right at the end. the team's owner, mark cuban certainly enjoyed it. 109-100, the score. the stats make it clear how
5:51 am
important nowitzki is to the mavericks. with him in their sight this season, they've won 78% of his game. when they've been absent, nine games of the season so far, they've lost 78%. they better keep him fit for the rest of the season. >> they had better. don riddell, thank you. the devil may wear prada but the star of the movie is about to change her slinky gown for a bat suit. will batman fall for anne hathaway? ordinary rubs don't always work on my arthritis.
