7:05 am
a number of mistakes on companion trail but here in houston texas he mostly stayed on message and defended he's records and for many democratic voters he is considered to be most likely to be able to beat donald trump so you have your correspondent alex out of phenomena in houston texas for us thank you so much. moving now to the bahamas where authorities say 1300 people are unaccounted for in the wake of hurricane dorian down from the previous estimate of 2500 officials say the largest figure probably included some people who are now staying at shelters but 50 people are now confirmed dead the storm devastated the bahamas at the beginning of september. which is breathtaking in its brutality. hurricane dorian has transformed this kind of being part of the east into

7:12 am
military gear to the vox vokoun car nazis created a tightly regulated set of symbols that reinforced hitler's structure as the supreme leader of the german reiss. the fox and the people's receiver was sold to germans as a way to choose into hitler's speech is the model number one is a reference to the 30th of january the day hitler was sworn in as chancellor of germany in 1933 the nazis rejected communist and modernist in theory but appropriated both walk creating little new. there is no such thing as nazi design of the it's compiled of 3 or more different kinds of of design is you know the classical. vary from and it's also modern and it's adopted from you know from ideas of the zone that already existed and the nazis go their own meaning to it and that's of course very important and that's why you have to explain what it was all about in the thirty's and forty's. often used architecture to impress the 136
