the job or cannot take up the career that she would lie and she she has a talent for that and of course this is some human resource loss to their cause there also appears to be an ethnic dimension but as soon as a large russian minority receiving low pay the nearest early in counterparts and ethnic russian women come out bottom of the list it's a structural a show in the labor market. that. russian speaking we mean the they are perhaps working in the sectors where the pages where the wages are especially low and this. of course increase. their pay gap even more whether it's over it's in the city or gender it's stereotypes that have been identified as one of the root causes of inequality in green latitudes of what to seen as the proper roles men and women should perform a passed down through generations the government says it's trying to weed them out

but it's going to take time. i want to meet. the problems there is no point of. hiding the problems that your country faces it is a lengthy process and. and they started to show people change overnight for all good though it's simply a case of double standards. at the international i think it's our prime minister with speed myself even if he didn't have to pay the utilities i don't think it would last a few more week children and parents are enjoying the summer sun behind me but for many estonian women it's a rare luxury and with gender stereotypes dying hard it could be years before stoning women catch up with their male counterparts tom barton r.t. to live in a stone near. well it seems that the relations between russia and iran are rapidly heading downhill president mahmoud ahmadinejad has accused dimitri but we're there
11:11 am
for being a spokesman for the enemies of iran are we going to try to insisted that iran wants to continue its friendship with moscow but he claimed russia is recent statements on iran's nuclear program were quote america's propaganda drama russia and iran have long been political economic partners recently in moscow back u.s. proposed sanctions against iran the west fears the country is working on nuclear weapons but iran insists it's only pursuing peaceful energy. from the moscow state university of international relations believes that with his latest statement the iranian president is simply trying to score points among the radical population of the country. if. you had to move. i think that behind such aggressive rhetoric there is a dinner judd's desire to unite the section of the iranian society he relies on this section is not conservative but rather militaristic and i'm a dinner john doesn't reject any tools to reach his goals he blames western
11:12 am
countries russia c blame some arabic countries for conspiring against the islamic republic but the next time he could say that everything's fine in relations with his partners. for several years i'm a degenerate who has been using the same tactics of aggressive rhetoric and despite all the protests on the streets of tehran he is still in power but the methods he uses in foreign policy help him to stay in office across the. mean time. from the institute of world economy and international relations in moscow believes despite the harsh comments towards russia the kremlin will still insist on dialogue i don't think that the russian reality on the relations will deteriorate significantly because so we still have a very big economic cooperation with our wider audience. will shout atomic power project is going to be completed. probably next landfall in the north and so
11:13 am
i don't think that there will be drastic sending all the economic relations as well as political relations between iran and the russian federation i don't see it suppose that there will be a very strong reaction will be hard for moscow to watch it on and say this is because moscow is still thinking that iran will actually be negotiating the iranian nuclear program and moscow is still hoping that the round we'll be listening to the voices of reason. that's why i don't think that the reaction they have the most will be very strong. it is nearly quarter past the hour here in the russian capital you are with r.t. and it may be the stuff of horror movies but returning from the dead is also the hope of a few with cash to spare a clinic in russia is offering clients the chance to put their brains and bodies on ice science advances enough to let them outsmart the grim reaper stacy peterson's

nitrogen fills that cracker with says it can't make any promises but this might just be a way to get a take to find life if science catches up with imagination will be transferred to new bodies the cost of a simple brain freeze is ten thousand dollars even if we can't. spend it animation right now if we can preserve the structure of the information about the course and then we can still put pressure revive him in the future while some in a scientific community support investing in cloud gen x. they believe major advances in the field are a long way off controlling the fine process is a major challenge but nothing compared to bring someone back to life. the problem at hand is resuscitation it's biological death and irreversible derangement. but if the future can bring this lad's result the icebox back to life what does he hope to do that my immediate goal is to fly somewhere to
