signatories including france germany the u.k. they say haven't done enough to protect it from america's financial penalties the tensions between the west and iran escalating is a quick look back at the troubled relationship in recent decades. iran's done with dialogue at least it seems when it comes to washington. the useless sanctions imposed by the desperate u.s. government on iran's supreme leader and foreign minister has the effect of blocking the path to diplomacy for years iran has attempted to rebuild relations with the u.s. without any tangible results in 1988 the u.s. military shot down a radium passenger plane that killed 290 civilians including 66 children and although the incident was considered an accident the pentagon never apologize if i believe that given the operating environment captain rogers acted reasonably and did what his nation expected of him. and it. was

little mermaid will stop black actress halle bailey in the lead role and the big debate in the week just gone. after an extensive search it was abundantly clear that halle possesses that rare combination of spirit heart youth innocence and substance plus a glorious singing voice all intrinsic qualities necessary to play this iconic role back in 1989 disney released instead of tradition of that famous fairy tale written by the initial for hans christian andersen in the version ariel was a blue eyed red head white girl as some argue the new version should stay true than to the 989 film but others know having a black lead is a win for diversity. the actress cast is areal can sing act dance and is beautiful but racists yes that extreme irritation you feel is racism or like mermaids can be black will crabs can talk so we're all stretching here shut up fat

box little mama lives on a tropical coral reef with a calypso signal with a strong jamaican accent when you think about it it's bizarre she was white the fust time around there goes my favorite princess can't believe the just 3 my favorite princess she has a beautiful voice but if she's playing ariel i'm going to be she doesn't fit the look at all could you imagine the uproar of the cast a white actress to play tiana in a live action remake i just don't understand why is this necessary well we continue the conversation here an obscene as well put it up for debate. well that what people are trying to do is trying to bring people back to a certain kind of reality that we live in a very diverse society and to try and present if you like to try and normalize 1st because what happened before was that we had a society which those people were excluded or if they were presented they were presented as before they were prevented of course in the translation which was derogatory to them we bring race to the forefront and make it an issue when it
2:19 am
really isn't an issue i think it's a very dangerous precedent and i think it is think it really is not i think it's really not about the inclusive idea that your other guest discussed discusses i think it's really a leftist agenda to divide us and keep us from working together and i think the people are overly concerned about his presentation are trying to as they said they want something they're used to but any challenge. challenge is if you challenge is what they think in the they think they think they should be like a princess can be black and what we want to do weird is not the line on that so every every single hollywood movie made from now on must have a gay person a jewish person a black person hispanic person and all we probably better represent all that you know population so let's say a puerto rican person a cuban person and i don't know there are people here from from our other countries too should we should we just make sure now that every single movie has every single

race religion color size socio economic level where do you draw the lying if you look at the history of hollywood with birth of a nation it started off really badly with the original 1st feature film been a racist film which used skin color in a negative way of course they should be a good story line but also a film can do multi faceted things and i think we have to move beyond being obsessed by the fact that we live in a society that is proud to support diversity we do live in a society that does have problems around racism in american society has that and i think that the people who are denying. our people are not willing to begin to really talk about challenging it we had some be called dylan roof to walk into a blood shot of the body i'm sorry there's been a number of shootings in on that basis these a tragic tragic things we had black president black billionaires all over the place all sorts of hispanic people and in positions of power i would hope that no one would not like this character based on that they might not like the idea of it
2:21 am
being imposed they might feel that it's a little bit racist to say oh well we have to have a princess be a certain color i don't think that makes them a racist i think that makes them somebody that just wants the best person for the job to be chosen whether it's a movie or a corporate venture i think the best person should always be chosen regardless of their skin color or anything else. in germany that we just going to remember charged in connection with the search should be use of more than 40 children with the defendants confessing to nearly all the charges brought against. the majority of the abuse was perpetrated by a single individual who lived at the campsite is accused of almost 300 sex crimes

against 23 children over the years he's reportedly been leering his victims with trips with parks and even used his foster child as bait well police now accused of an action over all this in the face of mounting evidence of abuse over many years and the authorities are also blamed for letting evidence disappear back in february they admitted losing almost a terabyte of evidence meantime one of the children's representatives say that the way the victims were questioned was inappropriate for their age and the authorities themselves acknowledge that there was a police fairly they say calling the situation at the region's interior minister says this was worse than negligence and it should never happen again we spoke to one of the victims lawyers about the mistakes that were made. if you look we have seen numerous flaws the most terrifying is the disappearance of $155.00 c.d.'s from a secure police station we're talking about the c.d.'s which were found at the campsite in the main suspects trial it turned out that the people we've probably

convictions for possession of child pornography were working at the police station and still law as for the interrogation of the children they were questioned at the police station but this is not what should have happened there are specific ways in which children can be questioned and it involves support from social services and the establishment of a trusting relationship it should not happen as an interviewer to police station that my opinion to escalate because of the callous approach to information on child pornography and paedophilia and the department's employees lack of awareness it is simply unacceptable for a department to react in this manner and then try to cover up its own negligence. just some of the world used to respond in the world run this is last 7 days as reported by us internationally far more. common of your saying to. me up to 24 minutes past not of the morning this sunday we had a great weekend and we'll continue to watching us this morning.

the problem of the financial system costs from austria throughout the rest of the world was so big that not just one central bank could make money cheap enough could create enough artificial money by itself and so the fed did clearly did work together with the european central bank with the bank of england with the people's bank of china later that was kind of separate story with the bank of japan and so forth to create enough money to put into the financial system to keep it safe for itself and all to mainly what that did is a transfer of all that money into the banks into financial assets into burgeoning stock markets like. ton of sort of crack into an attic up and up and never took it away and that someone else was going to pay on the other side and the people that paid on the other side as everyone else in.

well and welcome to worlds apart even though it happened this is one of the most funded subjects in philosophy in the current scientific consensus is not too far all from the conclusions of the 1st western scholar happened as dimmick created $2400.00 curious ago pronounced it was a case of it happened is indeed in the eyes or rather in the mind of the beholder
2:28 am
why are the governments around the world so preoccupied with it to discuss that i'm now joined by mike see all of the happiness research institute and bestselling author mike it's good to talk to you thank you very much for its time thanks for having now when the global interest in happened this week that few years ago with a high level meeting on this subject it was presented as and you can all make paradigm something that is more comprehensive than let's say g.d.p. you think the economic focus is really justified i think we should a new measure of progress i mean g.d.p. per capita. which is an important indicator for progress but i think a lot of people globally feeling that we have gotten. richer societies without necessarily getting happier and we need additional new measure of progress and wellbeing happiness quality of life might be one of those now but government's main
2:29 am
purpose by default is to make people's lives that are the greatest good for the greatest number so if they're doing their work correctly they would be taking care of all busy this institutional factor so well being why do you want them to be engaged in the subject if personal aspect of happiness. policies do influence people's lives i think policies the way we shape societies the way we build cities i think dose impact. well the quality of life and i think is also why we see some of the patterns we see for example in the world happiness report that looks at life satisfaction for people around the world we see things like healthy life expectancy we see things like the level of corruption we see things like freedom. social support or that does have an impact on both me and happiness so i think governments they have an ability to impact important aspects on our lives i heard you say in some of here perry has entered his that
2:30 am
interest institutional official interest in happiness was in part due to the realisation that while. convert into happiness in fact would argue that they may be an opposite correlation because in some developed countries you see the increase in the levels of depression self harm suicide do we really understand that these point a relationship that they can all make wellbeing and people's happiness or unhappiness matter i don't think we fully on distances and there's a lot of complexity in there but on average we see as group as groups the richer countries happier but there's a lot of variance with the in both the rich country group and the poor countries so i think in the beginning it makes a lot of sense for governments to focus on reducing poverty and lifting people out of poverty i think once we get to a certain income level i think it makes better sense to focus on.
