1:06 pm
lawns they also protest inside the capitol even though congress wants to pretend that there's no crisis out there and re president obama wants to pretend that he's solved it the fact of the matter is it's just as bad and it's not getting better deborah phillips told her daughters it was president obama they were here for they think they're here for the white house that's all they've been talking about saying obama but. a struggle shared by everyone here in varying degrees. you can hear. family members passed away. started a last hope in an economy still in peril reporting in washington christine for sound r t. filmmaker and blogger danny shushed of relieved thousands of simply

rejected from president obama's program because the banks have too much say in who qualifies. i was in atlanta with the naacp. for closure effort there to try to help people and you know twenty five thousand people showed up there they've been showing up around the country precisely because the government programs are not working something like five hundred thousand people have been thrown off the government program because they don't meet various criteria as a consequence only a small relatively small percentage of those facing foreclosure are being helped at all and when we say helped means that their mortgages are modified either the interest level is reduced or the in some way the terms of payment are made more affordable for people but by and large the services the so-called mortgage servicers who work with the banks are really controlling the process the government is not imposing rules here they're not really offering debt relief to people as

1:09 pm
a meager pay packet just as it is thirty three degrees celsius in their work shop but our employers don't care if you try to stand up for your rights they'll point you to the door if you don't like it here you're free to leave it's very hard to find a job here in a store and you therefore put up with working in slave like conditions dystonia has one of europe's worst pay gaps between men and women studies say women get paid seventeen percent less than men on average but in a stone year it's as much as thirty percent people think that we don't have the problem is that there is there where ness of the problem and. and the problem that people don't have their gender lenses how to say. when there is an equality going on. it goes much further than wages so-called segregation in the economy means women often remain in lower paid jobs like health care and education while

men dominate the more lucrative private sector experts say that's not just infer that it's bad for business if for example a concrete to a woman feels that she can i do 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 corner there also appears to be an ethnic dimension with a stone as large russian minority receiving low pay the nearest early in counterparts and ethnic russian women come out bottom of the list it is 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 where of course increase. the pay gap even more whether it's over at the city or gender stereotypes that have been identified as one of the root causes of inequality in green latitudes of what to see as the

proper roles mon 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 would submit. the problems there is no point of. hiding the problems that your country faces it is a lengthy process and. and the certitude of people to not change overnight are all good though it's simply a case of double standards. i think if our prime minister was peed myself even if he didn't have to pay the utilities i don't think it would last him a 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. estonia. is relations between russia and iran and rapidly heading to help president
1:12 pm
mahmoud ahmadinejad's accused me to medvedev of being a spokesman for the enemies of iran and we did as he had insisted to wants to continue its friendship with moscow but he claimed russia's recent statements on iran's nuclear program were quote an advert for america's problem ganda drama russia and iran have long been political and economic partners however recently moscow backed u.s. proposed sanctions against iran the west fears the country's working on nuclear weapons but insists it's only pursuing peaceful energy you know do so from the moscow state university of international relations believes with these latest statement the arabian president simply trying to score points among the medical population of the country. to move through i think that behind such aggressive rhetoric there is a 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 doesn't reject any tools to reach his goals he blames western countries
1:13 pm
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 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 because. more thoughts about the story of the dimmest son nicholas from the institute of world economy international relations in moscow he 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 we still have a very big economic ration with a wider audience. the bush era tomic power project is going to be completed. probably next month for northam so i don't think that there will be drastic was
1:14 pm
ending all very economic relations as well as political relations between iran and the russian federation i don't suppose that there will be the very strong reaction on behalf of moscow towards iranian statements because moscow is still thinking that iran will actually be negotiating the iranian nuclear program and the hospital still holding that iran we'll all be listening to the voices of reason and that's why i don't think that the reaction to have a mosque will be very strong. it may be the stuff of horror movies but returning from the dead is also a dream for a clinic now in russia or is offering clients the chance to put their brains and bodies on ice until science advances them vance's enough to let them out smart the grim reaper the stakes of even visited was the only person he was type side when you weigh.
