a initial infection we are from to spread to all provinces here at the moment of the specific moment when i understood that the situation with serious it took one or 2 days on the 22nd of december i was out with friends the next day i wanted to go to the city center of my friend told me the metro had been closed but those 8 year i tried entering the. true but it was shot everything was closed to me and the 144 people were evacuated to 2 men from new one on their arrival they rule examined by specialists. how is it that so many people who spend so much time at the center of an epidemic have not been infected 144 people were evacuated and not one of them was infected why. all the probability of infection from this new coronavirus was high but restrictive measures have been taken firstly limited movement around the city secondly wearing masks can frequently washing hands much of the main

recommendations for avoiding infection 1st of all good care of the nose and throat this means rinsing and don't be lazy it rinse until you feel your airways are clear . thousands of spanish students have rallied in central madrid against sex education plans by the right wing vox party demonstrators chanted feminist slogans and carried banners denouncing the so-called parental veto when the proposal parents would have to give permission for children to join school workshops perceived as ideological and that would include classes on sex education gender and other issues like climate change so far though only the region of mercy has introduced the plans although it has been condemned by the national government local authorities are refusing to repeal the. we will not do it because it says the government does not believe in the world we believe in namely the freedom of fathers and mothers. a homophobic family does not have the right to make their children harmful because well parental authority cannot be confused with property
7:11 am
in the u.k. to education has sparked a furious backlash from september classes covering the issue of become compulsory there and that has triggered protests among parents particularly from religious communities we put up the debate with the christian concern member michael phillips and also with the human rights campaign a piece that actually i think is absolutely right that parents do have a right to teach their own children according to their beliefs but the education system has a responsibility to give children a comprehensive education and to give them information to safeguard their health and welfare to say that the state must come in and muscle in into an area which parents are we doing extremely well for thousands of years is just simply it's not good for the primary responsibility in fact rest for the parents and parents do have the right to opt out of of sex education a majority of parents think it is the responsibility of the schools to do that
7:12 am
they're happy and content for that and if you look around the world in every country where there. are anti sex wars and low cost sex and leisure bridge occasion the levels of teenage pregnancies and abortions are much much higher michel as long as these classes of thoughtfully and the not indoctrinating children what what's the problem here are the programs which encourage more knowledge and more explicit knowledge were completely and utterly counterproductive whereas those which encourage abstinence people waiting so that they you know they gauge and sexual activity when they're ready and mature those were the ones those were the programs which were seen to be the best for teenagers uganda quite a long time ago are banned and sex education and went for abstinence only to discourage young people having sex the endless. with increased teenage pregnancies and rocketing levels of hiv pairing what happens in this country uganda is
7:13 am
comparing apples and pears completely inappropriate comparison i would suggest ever since we have seen the introduction of sex education in this country as something which is compulsory since 1983 unfortunately there has been a number to go to disaster which has happened in this country we have seen s.t.d. teenagers and young people go up to see abortion go up we've seen all social indicators of things that happen to young people have risen in relation to sexual matters it is proven throughout the world that early good quality age appropriate relationships that indication does actually work what the educated the people who know what they're talking about and they've studied this going back for decades that really the. waiting and respecting yourself these are these are the programs which work best are the most healthy which lead to the best and most prosperous society and what ultimately what's in the best interest of every child. has been as michael bloomberg and tom style the us presidential race critics are suggesting
7:14 am
they're spending money rather than discussing their policies was a factor i think you could have done reports russians are at it again and of plotting to purchase another 4 years of presidency for trump or at least this is the reality star is living in. donald everyone knows that in 2060 russia before the election for you we're not going to let the happen again i'm all in to defeat you in 2020 if you don't know hold on style is or what so great about him don't worry many americans don't know either he's a failed runner for the democratic nomination and outrageous spend on his own campaign style as bid to topple donald trump is backed by his fellow loser mike bloomberg who spent even more trying to buy his way into the hearts of voters the sum is so offensively large in fact it even had emerson b.c.
7:15 am
confused you see it as a possibility if you want to spend a $1000000000.00 beating this guy he could do it absolutely and somebody tweeted recently that actually with the money he's spending on every american in dollars well it's a lot less disturbing if you get the math right quick arithmetic lesson guys $500000000.00 divided by $327000000.00 is roughly $1.00 well dollars not 1000000 this aside though and bloomberg combined spent more than the 750000000 dollars on their campaigns before super tuesday that's more than all other democratic candidates combined and as much as the entire hillary clinton campaign officially cost back in 2016 including primaries and the had to had with the trump yet
7:16 am
all these good zillions failed to secure even one delegate for styler while bloomberg got 61 and in case anyone from emerson b. c. is watching it's math time again and that's more than 8000000. well as the delegate you clearly can't buy the election to be some rich guy but if you're completely out of touch with the american people if you are so arrogant to spend this amount of money it's it's not going to get you very far the democratic party which is party of billionaires and corporatists and and large banks and what have you joe biden being that a credit card or banking candidate they like don't like their their followers their voters to notice because they try to present themselves as the party of the people obviously they're not but so they would probably like to keep that under wraps and while joe biden is excited to have these wallets now the poor ng money into his
7:17 am
campaign it's difficult to say why according to the mother reports russia spent an unbelievable $100000.00 on online ads remember in dumb stuff as well that was enough to buy trump presidency his hundreds of millions of dollars didn't even get him a single delegate not even a nomination so either that's some one hell of a money management skill or maybe just maybe someone's policies just aren't worth a penny some invisible mysterious russians who spent a $100000.00 on facebook ads of $26.00 team which somehow got the president elected well now we've got mike bloomberg who spent half a $1000000000.00 on ads that look at everybody going to spend that money and he could have paid donald trump to leave office not i think the president would he could have bought american samoa. so the company decided to sneak us

7:21 am
know what such might suspect i mean you're basically a little slaves. then prince charming got a very on regal dressing down and got renamed kit heaven forbid we have any magic romance of gallantry left in the world also you'd think that with 65 years to come up with a new name they'd have done it a bit better as a side note not sure why prince charming gets a make over but it's still ok for cinderella to be stitched into a course. in the blue dress it was particularly tight when i was trying to dance i didn't have the capacity to breathe to support the physicality and so i had to keep taking breaks and loosen in the corset then a latin materialized flying carpet and a genie in a cave yes please i was still clinging to the hope that the cinderella saga is just a teething problem no now princess jasmine it always been

transphobia over the international women's day celebrations with more on the story at woodstock. international women's day is coming up it's a day to mark the struggle for the right to vote and the fight for equal rights but this year the run up to march the 8th has been inadvertently embroiled in a trance rao certain council liverpool has been pressurised into removing flags being flown outside its town hall is simply red woman noun adult female and while that might be the definition in the oxford english dictionary it's been deemed transphobia the flag you flying at the moment is a hostile transphobia dog recognizes a symbol and brand of one of britain's most outspoken and visible trans antagonists and leader of the trans phobic hate group moments later the flags were removed but the council saying it didn't realize the controversial messaging they were being asked to display we have been made aware of the potential issue regarding the messaging on the. town halls and have taken them down we have
7:25 am
a proud history of supporting l g b t q plus riots across the borough we continued to support all members of all communities and while it looked like international women's day had been canceled later they decided to reinstate the celebration replacing the old flag with a different one we went to find out if people really find the statement on the flag offensive why would it be offensive. just because you have a flag that represents women and doesn't insult anyone else it just empowers women i think it's a woman decision. definition of. i know it. we need to. take a lot of political things to talk about a woman i don't think there should be a label and i don't think there should be a definition of genders all religions or anything but the problem i have is with the word transphobia coming to the word for means that one has to feel to it
7:26 am
something i don't think that's necessarily the case and i don't think the word is being brandished around to say this if it's you know to. the sense of other agendas well what the times have been and on it seems like you can send a very anything without offending people or at least having opinions polls apart this is a very subjective a very relative issue it's an opinion based where you call it flag offensive on a tweet because it used the dictionary definition the problem when you give in because of anonymous or angry tweets when you give in you give that platform power nobody should be giving it power to any voice that is meant to silence for wrongful reasons and so we don't want to give those voices any more justification just because they don't like something because then it's going to cause everybody who wants to shut down a company shut down a cause or shut down any kind of truth or opinion that they don't agree with it's
7:27 am
going to give them more power to continue lambaste in these defamatory slanderous remarks on twitter and social media which has been very very harmful to people we have now been entrenched in this culture of fear where everybody wants us to be afraid where we cannot say anything and what that does when there is such a pervasive culture of fear we're going to be labeled transpo records enough or racist or homophobic or whatever it is your snot international stuff new things you company would buy again with the headlines are more stories in 30 minutes. well it's all they all. fell.

a report the question is what do you do with the global economy that relies on just in time delivery of parts and services mostly from china is interrupted by a global pandemic and can't be overcome with more money printing that's the big question jail free card like jamie diamond are you going to be able to run away to a secret island like all the elites like all the c.e.o.'s that just retired recently with big bags of cash and they're disappearing. stacey max we're still in los angeles we're riding out the pandemic this week here then we're heading home but of course you can't have endemic without arts and that's why behind me you see wells fargo on fire of course that means we're going to be speaking in the 2nd half to alex schaefer of burning bank fame so that's one of his works that he's working on right now but in terms of this pandemic and the day globalization that we see about it of course this is something that kaiser report has been warning essential
7:30 am
a about this crisis for the past 10 years we've said all of this just in time globalization would basically cause us to be very fragile when one thing goes wrong it all falls apart and we've seen that we've seen that with now the medical supplies all those masks are made in china antibiotics are made in china vitamin c. is made in china all sorts of pharmaceuticals are made in china and they have the monopoly on it so fears of a supply shock are rattling stocks and global markets as well outbreak continues investors are more used to dealing with the occasional threat of negative demand shocks an unexpected hit to demand for goods and services but the potential for a negative supply shock and unexpected change in the supply of a product or commodity is more unnerving this is not something we've really seen since back in the great depression days and and world war 2 days you know we're going to go to rationing.
