9:04 am
cameroon has never been greater in the south west northwest in particular we have witnessed the emergence of a new crisis characterized by numerous abuses and violations of human rights but all of these problems have roots that reach far into cameron's past a former german colony france and the u.k. were given the mandate to look after the area following the 1st world war then in the 1960 s. france and the british finally gave the territories that independence to former colonies which had been ruled in very different ways became a single state that haven't quite got the gist of it or is losing ground and. the blue powers are aware of but there is no real effort to want to. shout over this doubt they come to this independent country and should be. no more from my foo keep close tabs on it. to be honest.
9:05 am
with you there was collusion between. government. the french government to ensure that. people remain in the country. in. which. i think. the. country. whether it's a month earlier but it's coming. through as the world what she saw and what some already describing as a civil war in central africa is cameroon is becoming more entrenched the nub of the issue may lie in the country's kowloon you'll post but it's today citizens are suffering the consequences. police brutality is the 6th most common cause of death among young men in the u.s. that's according to a recent study it comes as california's governor signed
9:06 am
a new law limiting the use of force by police officers when making arrests officers will only be able to use lethal force if they believe there is an immediate threat of death or injury the new law also makes it easier to prosecute police officers who abuse their power they could face criminal charges civil liability or disciplinary action with more details here is killed martin and just warn you you might find some of his report upsetting. the killing of unarmed african americans at the hands of law enforcement has been an issue that dominated headlines in the united states for years names like michael brown eric garner and tamir rice bring back memories of mass protest movements and rising anger from the black community and concerned citizens. be a part of. the latest statistics reveal just how systemic the problem of police violence could be
9:07 am
police for this is a leading cause of death for young men in the united states over the lot of course about one in every 1000 black men can expect to be killed by police risk of being killed by police peaks between the age of 20 years and 35 years for men and women and for all racial and ethnic groups in fact dying at the hands of law enforcement is the 6th leading cause of death think about it american police officers take more young lives than diabetes influenza and most diseases only car accidents suicide homicide heart disease and cancer kill more young americans than police officers it's almost like interactions with the police or becoming a public health crisis or a drug epidemic the study reinforces calls to treat police violence as a public health issue racially unequal exposure to the risk of seat violence has profound consequences for public health democracy and racial stratification of course police authorities maintain that they do everything in their power to
9:08 am
exercise restraint take the case of tony tampa a 32 year old living in dallas texas he called the police himself to say that he was off his medication for schizophrenia and then he needed help after the police arrived responding to his own call they restrained him they laughed at his pleas and he eventually stopped breathing. both. of them don't like the i don't know nothing about rolled and rolled code only 3 lunatics got. in new york city the subways and billboards warn the public about dangerous diseases like diabetes there was even a controversial subway ad campaign warning about the results of teen pregnancy so with police being the 6th leading cause of death for young men in the united states should a similar public awareness campaign be waged we decided to ask people here in new york city i don't thing that i would help i thing with proper training would help
9:09 am
maybe you know train these police like to understand how to take care of lives you know that's what is needed i think more. a more useful public service announcement would probably be about advocating for knowing all your rights and knowing how to talk to police in an encounter knowing that it's legal to record it record them doing their job in all states those kind of public service announcements might might be more useful in my book issue with with people being killed at the hands of police officers in the usa yeah i think it's 5050 to be honest even playing 5050 meaning like place officers pass away as well as perpetrators and that's just a shame that's our society the us public seems pretty aware that the country has a problem with police violence these statistics weren't really shocking to the people we spoke to they will mop and r.t. new york. we also spoke with a former police officer dominic is a he says there's a need for broader cooperation between the police and the public. one of the things that these studies which are constantly putting out they don't take into
9:10 am
consideration is you'll never seen you'll never see the level of resistance that the subject of the police used force with initiated or dardar or just in erected with you never see the level of impairment you never see the crime that was at hand there are countless contributing factors that are never put into play in these studies and these studies simply come out with gender race and then survival rate in doing law enforcement and the onus on that responsibility is always put at the feet of law enforcement ness not responsible but i would also like to see the public more held accountable i'm all for the demands of law enforcement being more ruthless it is a job that requires a more critical eye and a more critical watch but you have to have the public being willing to do their fair share too because some robert peels 7 principle 9 principles of policing is the police of the public in the public or the police so therefore part of the same cohesive unit and they have to start working together. and hongkong mass demonstrations have turned violent again the protesters threw bricks and gasoline
9:11 am
bombs at police who responded with tear gas. the protest movement in hong kong started back in june over draft legislation allowing the extradition of suspects to mainland china the demonstrations have since brought into other political issues over the last 12 weeks rallies have frequently turned violent a chinese foreign ministry spokesperson this week stressed the government would assist hong kong authorities to restore order in accordance with the law. france's elvis protest movement is back on the streets of paris right now as the country hosts the g. 7 summit the summit is taking place in the south west of france and the resort town of beer it's a part of protesters were also out in force on friday evening. all
9:12 am
right. there. as you can see a police used tear gas to deter anti g 7 protesters in the seaside town authorities say a number of demonstrators were arrested security services are on high alert now and the town is currently on lockdown. and australia in 1000 month old baby girl ended up in hospital was severely malnourished meant after being fed a big and died from birth in mostly oats and sparse she weighed less than 5 kilograms suffered major problems with her bones and was hardly able to move dr said she had only developed as much as a 3 month old and had no teeth because of a lack of the necessary vitamins the parents of ordered jail time after a judge handed them 300 hours community service instead. one putting fact that you
9:13 am
did there is no greater responsibility than that of a bio parent to use them to cancel the child to nurture the child and to protect the child from any or injury caring for the go was caring for a very young baby she couldn't sit up she couldn't speak any woods she couldn't feed his so hold both she couldn't play was to spend the dean who called trolling back and forth she couldn't roll over all the way. unfortunately it's not the only such case and made a swedish couple was jailed after their 18 month old child almost starved to death on a big and diet and also emerged that the parents hadn't registered their previous birth and the child had never been examined by a doctor or vaccinated and in another case parents in the us were arrested for similar reasons they ignored a doctor's advice on what supplements to take when raising a child as you can now with veganism on the rise the question of whether it's ok to raise children on the beacon diet is attracting more attention the american academy
9:14 am
of pediatrics says it can be safe without any developmental risks however not everyone agrees with that we discussed the issue with judy moore a registered dietitian and attrition us and patrick holden the founding director of the sustainable food trust. the contact between health as it is now with our health services is quite poor. and children aren't seeing nearly as regularly or as often as they used to base say 10 or 15 years a care and i think that's one of the problems that house physicists just can't keep keep an eye on the on the number of children that they've got in that case larry and we need to keep a vigilant eye on people who for the probably the best reasons are misguided late feeding their children unhealthy diet it's possible to keep the child health a batch they do need supplements you can't just rely on a begin diet yes we need to eat less meat but don't give up put together the right
9:15 am
kind of meat and that's good for your health even if you do all that and you help and somebody helps you plan the very last you're channeling greg to the heights. genetically potential height because we believe that milk protein and meat processing also are trying to an important factor in growth probably very challenging if you have to be an expert in this to get it right and i would argue that perhaps it's not necessary to be quite so extreme as i have seen several reagan parents who come to me and say they want to bring up their challenge the gann and once we talk it through and i explain the implications of it and have plans for right to be in the planning of the doc most of them decide against it but i would say that most of them that i've seen race in a while either the last 2 or 3 years and not getting the going because of their environmental concerns there's a lot of worry at the moment about what the dart that is correct for addressing
9:16 am
climate change and all the other problems with racing is what we would argue that it is possible to eat sustainably to include a whole range of sustainably produced livestock robots in the diet without feeling a little guilty about it and probably your ready children would be better off with a void of age and not have. very young children and let the children decide when they're old enough maybe after their grades fetches finished whether they want to i begin dosh or not and in the mean time allow them to eat a full of diet sort of old. and grapes we couldn't address climate change but he she will sustainably we can also vote or it goes russia celebrating national flag day our correspondent joined the festivities here in moscow they tell after the break. heard.
9:17 am
seems wrong. but old rules just don't hold. any old belief yet to shape out just to become educated and in gains from it equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. this is the poseidon adventure mixed with the titanic in one colossal all sinking of the global economy right now we've got donald trump starring with the ghost of paul newman on the bridge of the titanic watching as they engineer colazal failure of the global economy.
9:18 am

9:19 am
now the tricolor russian flag itself has been through a lot over hundreds of years the tricolor flag itself was made during the russian empire only adopted years later by tsar alexander the 3rd during the soviet union the flag was changed for the hammer and sickle over a red background and again he had done it in the 9091 after the fall of the soviet union we actually talked to a lot of russians here about what the flag means to them and why this holiday so important. to them when you know we simply couldn't soon the sidelines of it all that's why me and my friends came from our town this commemorative day to be closer to our homeland. we came here to sure we saw on the heart of our homeland our flag

back so more carbone use the normal flight which makes your journey pointless. former white house press secretary sara sanders is joining fox news known for its pro trump coverage. excited to join fox news as a contributor looking forward to being with the fox and france team for my 1st hit on september 6th how should acts white house officials be treated when they spend months misleading the public then seek positions of fame and privilege that's all there from the top by a president who lies even about the weather in the time of day that i think is why this does deserve outrage and backlash meanwhile at the opposite end of the political spectrum former deputy f.b.i. director enter mccabe has joined the ranks of c.n.n. his appointment has also drawn criticism as mccabe was fired for leaking information to the media and lying about it including under oath the guy who department of justice inspector general found committed federal crimes and is
9:23 am
a serial liar could work soon and live to sue the commitment to serious journalism m g mccabe fired for lying to the f.b.i. caught by the inspector general for unauthorized media leaks and worst of all one of the ringleaders in spreading the debunked and disastrous russian collusion conspiracy theory his reward a paid c.n.n. contract comical andrew mckinney and c.n.n. are truly a match made in fake news heaven sanders is now the 3rd white house official to join fox following a stent in the trump administration obamacare politicians from a former director of national intelligence to axe white house communications officials are enjoying being pundits on c.n.n. political commentator dave perkins thinks former politicians joining partisan media outlets is a bad idea. i think it's a bad development for media that more and more political people are winding up in front of the cameras it's just not good news media is changing from the watchdog of government for the branch as they are called to a member of government
9:24 am
a participant of government end moreover a member largely on one side and against the other and when the media participates politically mostly on one side the public doesn't demand for them to stop it the public demands for other media to participate on the other side to balance them out because it's unfair because of all this easy motion between government and media it should not be allowed to happen but i'm not sure there's a way to stop it because i don't want government to be in charge of who gets what job either i'd rather it be free and people just know what it is they're seeing and who they're listening to when they get their information from the media better to know transparency is better than government supervision but i still don't like the direction that it's going that's or go with his wrap up for now but i'll be back at the top of the hour with the latest thanks for tuning it.
9:25 am
join me every thursday on the alex salmond show and i'll be speaking to guest of the world of politics sport this list i'm showbusiness i'll see you then. why a paradise with some around turned into a round experimentation field but agricultural chemicals we know that these
9:26 am
chemicals have consequences they are major irritants there's no question otherwise why would that the chemical company workers themselves be good often in day you have many of these people one foot into the biotech pharma and the other foot in the government regulatory bodies this kind of collusion is reprehensible while the battle goes on the chemicals continue to poison hawaii and its people so one has to ask the question whether there is a form of environmental research going on in hawaii whether these companies feel they can get away with this because the people have less political power. the and you're watching going underground while we're away we're going to be

9:28 am
renowned economist professor mary on them as a college or university college london and founder of the u.c.l.a. institute for innovation and public purpose a new paperback is the value of everything making and taking in the global economy welcome to the show marianna why apart from say jeremy corbyn is the every little skepticism about value in the 1st place in modern society which is the main issue on the front of the book so the word value has become a very fuzzy kind of flaky word that you know anyone can use you can call yourself a wealth creator lloyd blankfein the c.e.o. of goldman sachs one year after the crisis said that goldman sachs workers were the most productive in the world we as economists use to really debate and contest that word there's different theories of value and actually 1st we debated value and then that turned into a theory of price today we have basically an approach to the economy which is all about prices supply demand curves that determines price and that determines what. we value so the logic actually got reversed think of it the chain's shareholder value shared value and goldman sachs calling goldman sachs workers the most
9:29 am
valuable but what does that actually mean and so when we don't actually have a way to distinguish value creation from value extraction it becomes much easier just to throw the word around in fact the reason i wrote the book believe it or not is that in the 2015 election when the labor party lost the analysis by labor members themselves by leaders in the labor party the next day was we lost because we didn't embrace the wealth creators the value creators and by that they meant business and i thought to myself how can it be that we've gotten to the point where even the labor party which is about work labor doesn't you know doesn't actually have a narrative a way to talk about value that's collectively created and they confuse the word wealth creation with business because in the book you talk about lloyd blankfein fully of goldman sachs saying value all productiveness comes from organizations like goldman sachs it's like we're always told the city of london's a little wall street you know it's creates value yeah but what do you know what's
9:30 am
interesting is that up until the 1970 s. the financial sector wasn't even included in g.d.p. it was actually seen as just a transfer of the existing value from one place to another kind of like you would include social security payments it's just a transfer and before that in fact the way we would talk about finance was also in terms of rent so the classical economist talked about in terms of unearned income it literally just moving stuff around which of course isn't true of all the finance but anyway there is this kind of skepticism of what is finance actually doing and so in the 1970 s. which is when with deregulation and some other changes the size of the financial sector started to become larger what you had was that the people who were doing the systems of the national accounts s.n.a. inside the united nations started to say i got this thing that's growing larger and larger in the economy isn't even being accounted for so instead of pausing and saying oh dear why is that what is this thing this.
