of men the majority of whom were of pakistani origin preyed on mostly white girls aged from eleven to fifteen many of the victims thought they were in relationships with their abusers when the crimes were uncovered local authorities in yorkshire were accused of failing to tackle the problem partly through fear of being branded racist on the part of the authorities in their cases they were actually saying that these girls made a lifestyle choice it's about the fact that the authorities didn't want to be branded racist the ringleaders of the rod the room grooming going last year i think yeah the distant relatives of mine but you know what it doesn't change the responsibility that people like me have on tackling this particular issue so i've been campaigning against child sexual exploitation and street gang grooming gangs who are predominantly of a pakistani origin for over ten years the investigation into rather abuses has cost
ten million pounds so far four individuals have been convicted eighteen have been charged and thirty eight have been arrested no one senior has been held to account and with just seventeen percent of the victims interviewed so far all this may just be the tip of the iceberg. no one likes having a slow computer and having to replace the old ones certainly can be expensive a californian electronics recyclers to thought he had the perfect solution in selling it to look at him into big trouble with one tech giant microsoft has accused eric lundgren of creating thousands of illegal copies of its software he argues he was only using it to extend the lifespan of all p.c.'s in our faces up to fifteen months in prison and a possible fifty thousand dollars fine. insists he was acting within the law. the microsoft software itself gets missing d.l.l.
files and below where and viruses that over time will break down the software so that it doesn't operate and function as intended you might have seen that before if you ever use a computer and it just seems to slow down over time and it needs a every fresh which is what the purpose of a restore cd is so you have a license with your computer and that follows your computer in perpetuity until your computer's no longer working and that computer can be used by hundreds of people thousands of people and the license follows the hardware so the hardware itself over time might get missing d.l.l. files or it might get viruses in bloatware and what you'll end up doing is you want to refresh your re-install your valid copy of license on your computer and to do that you need three things you need to see a way you need a license and you need to restore media restore cd the restore cd is free you can download it anywhere online but the c.e.o. and license have to come from microsoft they're the only ones that can provide you with that microsoft claims it missed out on sales of his licensed products accusing
him of piracy prosecutors allege she made twenty eight thousand illegal copies of microsoft's operating system last year that was convicted but no appeal is court allowed him to walk use case one small he says his main purpose was to encourage people to use refurbished computers instead of posting new ones. i know that if you were to make top these of their license or their seal ways you're directly stealing from microsoft and you deserve to go to prison but if you are providing the restore cd which is the free thing that you can download for free or that's given to you with your computer if you provide that to consumers you're giving them the ability to repair their legally own property and i see no problem with that i believe in extending the life cycle of electronics and i believe that it helps us
be more efficient in society if we're able to use these computers as long as they last i was very surprised when microsoft put me in that same circle with the people that are out there hacking or stealing their licenses or seal ways i mean that is a crime crime that deserves to be punished because you directly stealing from somebody all i was attempting to do was help consumers use what they legally own i've been a recycler for sixteen years and all i care about is the environment i want to make sure the things that work continue to work for the benefit of mankind. the russian presidential election has already started at least in northwest siberia which became the first region to cast ballots an early polling now this was organized due to the remoteness of the polling stations there and of course the severe winter weather conditions election officials are using all possible means of transport ranging from helicopters to snowmobiles.
when something find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. apply for many clubs over the years so i know the game inside guides. the ball isn't only about what happens on the pitch for the final school it's about the passion from the fans it's the age of the superman each kill the narrowness and spending to get to the twenty million a bomb fly a. book it's an experience like nothing else not to because i want to share what i think of what i know about the beautiful guy a great so well paul chimes with. and thinks it's going to.
thanks for joining us here on r.t. russian trolls in the spotlight again this time u.s. politicians in the media are accusing them of spreading discord with an american society this now being connected to the recent florida school shooting. when informing us about the alleged danger of russian bots and internet trolls american politicians have been very clear about the intent behind russian conspiracies and sinister operations they want to sow division among the american people and one issue they've latched onto is the second amendment gun control debate apparently the russians are very big fans of our second amendment they don't particularly want to second members of their own but the really glad that we have one the russians would be thrilled if we were doing nothing but killing each other every day and sadly we are according to facebook's security chief the russians don't favor gun control or oppose it they just want to fight americans against each
other and make sure that we don't see eye to eye the ads in accounts appeared to focus on apple of fine divisive social and political messages across the illogical spectrum touching on topics from l g p t matters to race issues to immigration to gun rights so russian trolls are inflaming emotions over any sensitive issue guns included but it looks like we can locate some russian bots not only on facebook but who else is inflaming sentiments over that oh so sensitive second amendment will take away your second amendment which we will never allow to happen don't take away five for some people that might be obvious but trump isn't the only one selling division many in legacy media love mass shootings. you guys are loving. others threatening messages against gun owners
a billboard in kentucky has been vandalized with the words kill the n.r.a. that must be the work of russian trolls also if you follow the premise it seems like the mainstream american media is also working for the russians and left leaning media outlets immediately calling for more gun can. rolled right leaning outlets focusing on mental health connecticut governor dan malloy says president trump and republicans have blood on their hands after the deadly massacre in florida they call it gun control but it's not it's people control when any organization spends ten of millions of dollars promoting the interests of gun corporations to influence what happens in our elections then yes our democracy is a little broken. americans on both sides of the issue are now screaming at the top of their lungs from the highest levels of government to child survivors of mass murder accusations are flying everywhere now if this is all just some big plot from
moscow we really have a big problem here in america i have been a doing this professionally in terms of you know this type of comedy for thirty years now and in thirty years i think before the russian bots came along they've been saying the same thing every single time in my native florida so i know something about that so if the russians are claiming to take credit for involving themselves and insinuating themselves in this particular argument they're too late because this has been going on for thirty years and nothing's changed. a u.n. security council resolution regarding yemen that was proposed by russia has been adopted unanimously on monday russia vetoed a draft resolution tabled by the u.k. that condemned iran actions in yemen some are calling reports. russia's draft
resolution has passed unanimously in the security council today they met to discuss the ongoing situation in yemen and to vote on two rival draft resolutions one proposed by the u.k. and the other by russia of a u.k. draft resolution called for quote additional measures against iran over accusations that it violated an arms embargo now this came after u.n. experts said in january that iranian military equipment was brought in to yemen after the arms embargo was imposed but also stated that they were unable to verify the supplier and russia's draft resolution called for the renewal of sanctions until february twenty nine hundred but did not mention iran the russian ambassador called for political dialogue and expressed the need for the u.n. to come closer he also explained the reasoning behind the veto let's take a quick look i will be frank the wording advanced in the british draft is liable to have dangerous destabilizing ramifications and this is not only applicable to the situation in yemen but also to the region overall this will inevitably escalate
regional tensions and lead to conflict among key regional players instead of antagonizing relations in the middle east what we need are measures to seek consensus through a mutually respectful dialogue. in contrast the u.s. and u.k. feel that iran should be condemned and that russia china bolivia and kazakhstan shielded iran from responsibility let's check out what the u.s. had to say russia bolivia china kazakhstan sent an opposite equally clear message instead of demanding accountability from iran they decided to shelter ron from responsibility instead of insisting that iran live up to its international obligations they have invited iran to continue promoting chaos in the middle east their actions will not be forgotten and we will not stop until toran is stopped and peace is once more possible for the people of the middle east for some context the crisis in yemen started in twenty fifteen when saudi arabia led
a military campaign against the who things and since then the campaign has led to the deaths of thousands and reduced its infrastructure to almost nothing the conflict has been described as the world's worst humanitarian crisis as saudi arabia has imposed a blockade preventing any humanitarian assistance or food from coming into the country. i think the regime was looking for them. but. with. the help of course is this taking place in the province of solder is unprecedented keeping in mind that it was already bad even before the aggression the offensive the brigade were initiated and we were hit with this catastrophe which saw volatile infectious diseases spread like wildfire if you.
will. of the six children that come in need hospitalization there are dozens of cases most of them are due to malnutrition and it's consequences like seizures and pneumonia for example due to the crisis even is now facing cases of money are skyrocketing. in december the u.k. provided an extra fifty million pounds in aid for yemen making two hundred five million in total for twenty seventeen however since the start of the saudi
incursion london has sold riyadh four point six billion pounds worth of weapons a former adviser to iran's nuclear negotiating team says the u.k. has rejected a u.n. draft resolution ultimately missed the whole point. this is a very devious to resume lucian put forth by the you'll carried that essentially got into this blame game is there situation the diet you money therion catastrophically to asia in yemen do we really need to have the end of these double standards and the poor critical approach by by the un toward the saudis who have gotten away with murder in yemen i think that russia was very sensible and rational and it was the wind with deciders aleutian and russia drafted on extending the route so there's a sanction regime and an yemen so i really think that the un. save guided it so they're wrong wrong there would have never had to do situations that up helping it
sort of those sorts of this is r.t. international thanks for joining us on this tuesday more of a worldwide news headlines with my colleague andrew farmer in about half an hour. about your sudden passing i have only just learnt your yourself and taken your last bang turn. here at us we all know it but i tell you i'm sorry. so i write these last words it helps to put to rest these things that i never got off my chest. i remember when we first met my life turned on each day. but then my feeling started change you talked about war like it was a kid still some are fond of you those that didn't like to question our arc and i
secretly promised to never be like it's one does not leave the funeral the same as one enters the mind gets consumed with this one. speak to me because there are no other takers. to the claim that mainstream media has met its make. everybody i'm stephen ball. task hollywood guy yell suspects every proud american first of all i'm just george bush and r.v. i'm going to suggest this is my buddy max famous financial guru and well just a little bit different i've thought of going to one of the well you know windows up with all the drama happening in our country i'm shooting the road have some fun meet everyday americans. and closely start to bridge the gap this
is the great american people which. banks geysers financial survival they say money the bellatrix clipless it is it is a central bank support diagram is going to call them right now say stop the. this is boom bust broadcasting around the world from washington d.c. i'm part sheltie coming up we ask danielle de martino both to give us her view ahead of the new federal reserve chairman jay powell testimony before congress and
she helps us examine inflation and tells us just when she thinks interest rates will rise plus crypto currencies are increasing we check in with jeffrey tucker on what's going on and what to expect all of that in our near term future but first let's get some headlines a proposal to allow chinese president jiang jinping to remain in power past twenty twenty three is being considered the chinese constitution currently prohibits presidents from serving more than two terms of five years each the proposal by the communist party's central committee comprised of two hundred members is holding a three day meeting these days meeting to approve the presidential cabinet the central committee's recommendations are usually rubber stamped and approved by. the u.k. opposition leader jeremy corbyn of labor has come out in favor of remaining in the customs union that's a cooperative trading relationship with members of the european union however
corbett insisted that the u.k. still be allowed to negotiate its own deals with other nations and trade blocks a deregulates free rice the bottom would damage people's jobs and living standards and labor would negotiate a new and strong relationship with a single market that includes full tariff free access and a full on the existing rights standards and protections. corbin's position has been rejected in the past by e.u. officials when proposed by prime minister theresa may though corbin's more flexible stance on immigration and his pledge to immediately guarantee the rights of all u.s. you e.u. citizens living in the u.k. could earn him more space to maneuver if labor were to take over power the leftist leaders said trade deals with the united states or china would not be likely to
compensate for the significant loss of trade with our trading neighbors in the e.u. and pointed out that forty four percent of u.k. exports are purchased by consumers while fifty percent of the u.k.'s imports come from the e.u. corben statement increases pressure on the prime minister as the labor bloc members of parliament could now vote with euro skeptics from the conservative party to defeat expected legislation on the issue possibly leading to a vote of no confidence and new elections corben so-called soft bracks at position represents an evolution for the labor leader who has long been regarded as a skeptic of e.u. it also ordered him some praise rare praise that is from business groups including the confederation of british industry and the british chamber of commerce. and sticking with the united kingdom retail sales for january in the u.k. were lower than expected growing only point one percent when expectations were for
half a percent year over year u.k. retail sales were up one point six percent also far below expectations for two point six percent yearly increase the outliers in retail show that food sales took a large drop while sporting equipment sportswear toys and games all increased by eleven percent. the seventh round of talks to renegotiate the north american free trade agreement or nafta have begun but the latest news in the us mexico relationship there are more likely to make not much progress and recent months mexico and u.s. diplomats had worked behind the scenes to lower tensions that had been stoked by president donald trump's campaign pledge to complete a wall along the us mexico border and his demand that mexico pay the cost trump demands scuttled a trip from the mexican president and repay pena nieto who had planned to come here
last year shortly after trump's inauguration and diplomats on both sides had hoped to revive the plan for a trip this year however a phone call in recent days between the two presidents meant to firm up planned meeting for march ended a mutual frustration over the exact same issues as a can president trump to stop insists and that mexico would pay before the latest debacle diplomats and trade experts are already saying that nafta negotiation process is behind schedule now even that slow progress seems to be losing steam issues which have been seemingly unsurmountable somebody blocks include u.s. demands to significantly alter rules related to automobile imports and the imposition of a cause that would automatically kill nafta after five years canadian prime minister justin trudeau also weighed in recently on nafta warning that quote canada is willing to walk away from nafta if the united states proposes a bad deal. we're
joined by daniele de martino booth the founder of money strong and the author of fed up an insider's take on why the federal reserve is bad for america and daniel recently penned an opinion editorial that was for bloomberg view a super interesting danielle thanks for being with us again you think that most folks weren't actually as they were so consumed by the market moves in the last few weeks that maybe not enough of pent attention was paid to the inflation data that and some other things tell us about. well you know the real the real irony here is that what got people set off in terms of inflation fears was really not not real. the labor report that came out that showed two point nine percent year over year increase in earnings was largely offset by
a shrinking of the workweek so they really they really viewed the wage inflation problem in a silo and didn't take the whole picture into account if you're working fewer hours and you're getting paid more for the hour again they largely offset themselves they have been disregarding and this is what's stressing me out they've been disregarding news that we've seen of late on input prices raw materials the producer price index recently had a six year high and index of eighteen and dust real inputs hit a three year high and we've seen that wholesale inventories have been depleted they've been they've been they've been taken down to the bone and that implies not just that producer prices input prices for companies are high today but that they're going to keep rising investors really need to be aware of this so i want to go back to the century years saying that the people conflated the
data related to inflation related to inflate her so. i wondered when we saw that because that's a gear gently right that's how it was reported that there was a wage growth that was a little higher than people expected and i wondered whether or not you know some on the streets wait a minute we're not going to make as much money because it's going to workers i know it's a cynical view but as you say you know that wasn't even the full picture so when we when we look at inflation how does that impact things like bond prices down you know. well let's just say for example that the work week it was just a one month just one month aberration and that the next time we get the labor report out in a few weeks that we say that rate wages have continued to rise and that the workweek has expanded and on top of that the corporations are having to deal with higher input prices so you've got a margin squeeze right there you add insult to injury in the form of higher
interest rates and all of a sudden corporations are not only spending more for their workers meaning making less for their shareholders their input prices are squeezing them six ways to sunday and their interest expense is going up when they're when they're over ridden with more debt than corporate america has ever held before i mean this is that sounds like a triple storm to me that's building and again i don't necessarily know that investors are paying attention to the to the to the height of interest rates to the fact that more recently we saw that the flip side of the weak dollar which benefits our manufacturers is that import prices are rising at a surprisingly high rate we're not going to buy as many mercedes and b.m.w.'s as we were before if we were that fortunate to begin with right and you know one of the things you didn't mention there was that the tax hit that some companies took you know from from the new tax bill now that will work out to their advantage this year two thousand and eighteen two of the taxable year two thousand and eighteen
but they did have some tax hit still for last year and you're seeing that reflected in some of the earnings reports so combine that with what you're talking about the wage growth the input cost and the tax hit even though it's temporary all those are going into it i hate the perfect storm analogy but all of those are coming together and that's really what concerns you isn't it. it is and on top of that for all of the excitement that's been generated about the tax bill you know in order to accommodate that tax bill we know that the deficit. that treasury issuance bills and bonds over the next twelve months is going to be double what it was before that and that you know and that also incorporates the latest budgetary numbers that we've seen but again you can't have rising supply have the fed stepping back as a buyer little by little by little every quarter and not expect bond prices to rise
and i think once all of this once all of this craziness with short volatility and respect i think once the market has worked through that and the big downs and the big ups it's going to turn its attention back to interest rates back to what's driving interest rates and you know we're not that far away from the recent cycle high of three point zero three percent on the ten year treasury if we surpassed that which is maybe twelve hundreds of a percentage point if we pass that line of demarcation i can't tell you what's going to happen to the stock market but it won't be pretty. i can get the theory here and it is a little troubling as you're explaining it do you think. it's likely that we will see another market correction before the poem so you mean it's march right. march the twenty first and i think the odds are you know don't don't hold me to
this because there's one thing you can never do and that's time to market but i suspect that january was possibly the cycle high for the stock market and the we're going to continue to have one's the volatility genie is out of her bottle after the markets being as complacent as they've been on all of record keeping that we have on hand once that volatility is introduced you typically see the top of the market for stocks so now we're in the bumpy ride part of the transition that typically precedes a bear market is this going to happen before the march the twenty first i couldn't tell you i can tell you that the focus is going to be on jay powell when he puts in his initial testimony to congress on top of the twenty eight well let me ask you about him and about the poem she meeting and i know that it would be unfair to there's so many variables between now and the meeting but. just say things were
