ten twenty or sometimes just five meters a day the progress here is painstaking no one can say with any certainty how long it will take to find all the mines that were laid in the chaos of the early stages of the war but left untouched these mines have the potential to maim and kill the people of this region for decades to go. thanks for watching then fizzling is up next with you this is headlines. every journey begins with the first step and every language but the first word published in the. code is in germany to learn german why not learn with them simple online on your mobile and free shop d w z e learning course nikos free german made easy. cheap. waste.

industry the island nation turns to imports for the first time. and the world council who found an unusual way of keeping their bookshop alive after retiring. leads to business the european parliament has voted through european union ban on cotton buds straws and other plastic disposables the idea is to protect marine life more and more plastic is ending up in our oceans and in the fish and other seafood that we'd like to eat ultimately it ends up in us easy user vironment committee wants to add even more products to the list including plastic bags and polystyrene takeaway boxes the plan also includes recycling quotas for plastic bottles and fishing nets it could come into force in twenty twenty one pending approval from the european commission and member states. max often has the story from stress but i was listening to the radio this morning in my bathroom with his story and was
using a cotton bud and thought what i'm not going to be able to use it anyway. while i hear paper clips work pretty well but i do not recommend that to anyone here this is not a postal recommendation but of course it's all about alternatives you know and already big companies have started moving even before the european parliament did this for example replacing plastic drinking straw is with paper versions of that and i understand that's probably going to happen to your to your utensils as well that you use but remember this is not over yet what we have at the moment is the european parliament haven't demanded aid going forward which is important there was an overwhelming majority for this legislative project but now it's up to the member states to negotiate their port and if everything goes as planned we'll have actually had this ready by the time the european elections start next may what we
do sense though is overwhelming support across the aisles so the sense really is that something is going to happen that we will have some kind of law but it's just not clear what exactly it will have written in there yet ok that's interesting but then not banning all disposables i mean will this plan actually make a difference. the number that many parliamentarians here in strasbourg are working with is that half of all the plastic garbage on european beaches is single use plastic so that does make a difference and even the greens that are really pushing for a comprehensive approach here say this is a very important for a step but it can't be the last step the goal as you know is to phase out single use plastic by two thousand and thirty in the european union for example to green say we shouldn't just focus on plastic garbage in the seas. but also micro plastic on land one important number here for example is that agricultural surfaces in the
european union you have about forty three thousand to sixty three thousand tons of micro plastic that are dumped in getting into into the system there which is harmful to humans as well so again important first but probably not the last step well it sounds like the e.u. has a lot of work ahead of it max hoffman is trust but for us. analysts say deutsche bank's new boss on saving is doing a great job saving reducing costs but he's not saving the bank yet another restructuring is failing to halt the revenue slide it ship price also slipping this wednesday posting a sixty five percent decline in your own unit profit for the third quarter all of the land is divisions recording low yields with revenues in its fixed income business government and company bones down significantly but in a letter to the banks employees the chief executive said is on track to a profitable year for the first time since twenty fourteen once one of europe's
a leading financial institutions has struggled since the financial crisis. economist and noted joins us from the university and both in in the past decade has shares have lost nearly ninety percent of their value is the bank beyond saving. yes it's going through a difficult period it's the trade and your loss and the fall of enron plan started by a c.e.o. in the beginning of this year zero chance to fall into a record low and placed the bond on the least off the banks saw at the moment is captured in a vicious cycle. decline off revenues. expenses and on the low operating and high off funding costs for the bank but do you think the bank can actually be saved can it be turned around. yes but they have to be
faster in reducing the costs and they have to develop a plan to earn money specially because investment banking off the edge bond lost its path to success against the company does in asia in america do you agree with analysts that the new c.e.o. is doing an excellent job yes he's a in the beginning he's like a new trainer of a pm so he needs i think one or two years to fulfill his plan and who show the success of the turnaround plan it's not a crucial period he's he shows the results off the former c.e.o. so so you reckon the coach needs a bit more time what what does he have to do to get his team up to speed. and he has become organized. specially the project which is called blue cloth and which
will offer our services from modern financial. institutions and current spin takes call will help the bank to earn money and to offer new kinds of services financial services to small and medium sized firms but even to bangs so to modernize the production of whole your client business is one of the main tasks and of course reducing expenses is. the fact elephant economists band baaja thank you very much for being on the. cuba used to be a world leader in sugar production it once accounted for seventy five percent of cuban exports but for the first time the communist nation is turning to imports from as far away as france hurrican erma ravaged the island and its harvest that was followed by an unusually long rainy season police you know borrow quickly noticed a curious turn of events when produced from cane as in cuba sugar tends to be
brownish but the french version comes from beets and is white yes in fact you know it is we will win this on the sugar that has now been arriving is good it's very sweet not very different from cuban sugar that the main difference is the colors of . cuba's sugar industry was once the flagship of the arms up of cultural exports fidel castro cutting sugar canes after the revolution illustrated the france importance to the nation the soviet union used to buy most of cuba's sugar after the fall of communism in europe trade figures dwindled as did investments in seeds and fertilisers. more recently last year's hurrican erma devastated large parts of the country the subsequent harvest was one eighth of the size of nine hundred ninety. yeah. there's a lack of resources and a lack of money but i believe that there are also structural and organizational
factors so the thought of whether what it. and most of what does get harvested has to be shipped abroad mostly to china due to long standing contracts to meet domestic demand forty thousand tons of french sugar were imported in the second quarter alone symbolizing a broader change sugar is no longer cuba's lifeline tourism and remittances from emigrants are now the major driving forces of the island's economy. and next story is about the owners of a bookshop in the small welsh town of cardigan they want to retire instead of simply selling or closing down their business they decided to do something rather different. the unusual prize was dreamed up by owners paul morris and his wife layla they wanted to give somebody the opportunity to realize their dream of running a book shop with customers simply had to make
a minimum purchase to be eligible for the raffle. we want to give everybody an equal opportunity to teach in the book shop so we thought it was such like a three month period. why if somebody was interested they would buy twenty pounds with books i had given the opportunity to go to the heart but if you want possum peeping in the basin has no wood he lost and that's because everybody left for the twenty pounds worth of books minimum we don't want to. from hadn't wasn't present at the prize drawing and was shocked when he heard the good news. yeah. you know you don't plan on winning something right. so i was out on a farm sitting out in the middle of nowhere and i can actually received a phone call so i just got a text saying you want to shop. so i. have a coffee and. yeah. i'm
a size five fan thought it would be too much to run the store by herself so he invited an icelandic friend to help them together meanwhile paul on layla morris are ready to turn the page and start a new chapter in their lives they're fulfilling a lifetime member of travelling the world. icelandic friends always coming and a nice doing business i think i'll see you again very soon. cut
