3:09 pm
the man who was russia's 1st patient came off a flight from milan we now know that the virus is in russia and an epidemic may have started the effects of which are difficult to predict at the view. is a very interesting if the cells into thinking that it contains something beneficial and the cells accept it from earth if you feel unwell but it's difficult to breathe should you go to a hospital you know you need to go all 3 or one or 3 medics will come and assess the situation if they find out that the patient has a serious risk or infection and has been in risk areas then the bishop will be taken into quarantine. i went to competition in italy where there was no app demick at the time a few days after i arrived back home to russia i started to feel well now in a new municipal hospital while originally started from the initial infection and from. the moment as if in moments when i understood the situation was
3:10 pm
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 limit true had been closed but those 8 year i tried entering the metro but it was shot everything was closed to me in the 144 people were evacuated to 2 men from 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. 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 be washing hands. the main recommendations for avoiding infection 1st of all good care of the nose and throat this means rinsing and don't be lazy rinse until you feel your

airways are clear. after billionaires michael bloomberg and tom starr quit the u.s. presidential race critics have suggested they're focused on spending money rather than discussing their policies played a part of has more. russians are at it again and of plotting to purchase another 4 years of presidency for trump or at least this is the reality tom styer is living in donald everyone knows that in 2060 russia bought 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 who tom styer is or what so great about him don't worry many americans don't know either he is a failed run 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
3:12 pm
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. confused somebody recently that actually with the money he spent on every american in dollars i think ratable way of putting it it's true it's just irving well it's a lot less disturbing if you get the math right quick arithmetic lesson guys 500000000 divided by 327000000 is roughly 1.51.5 well dollars not 1000000 this aside though style and bloomberg combined spent more than $750000000.00 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
3:13 pm
cost back in 2016 including primaries and the had to had with the trump yet all these guys zillions failed to secure even one delegate for stare while bloomberg got 61 and in case anyone from amazon. the sea is watching it's math's time again and that's more than $8000000.00 the delegates 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 not going to get you very far the democratic party which is already of billionaires and corporatists and and large banks and what have you joe biden being that a credit card bank in canada 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
3:14 pm
while joe biden is excited to have these wallets now the poor ng money into his campaign it's difficult to say why according to the mother reports russia spent an unbelievable $100000.00 on online ads remember in tom stylez world 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 a $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. thousands of spanish students have rallied in

madrid against sex education plans by the right wing fox party demonstrators tended feminist slogans and carried banners denouncing the so-called parental veto under boxes proposal parents would have to give permission for children to. in school workshops perceived as ideological that would include classes on education gender and other issues like climate change so far only one region has introduced the plans it's been condemned by the national government but local authorities are refusing to repeal the move 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. and in the u.k. l g b t education has also sparked a furious backlash starting from september classes covering the issue it will
3:16 pm
become compulsory there and that has triggered protests among parents particularly from religious communities who put the issues up for debate. 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 be doing extremely well for thousands of years is just simply it's not good 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 they're happy and content for that and if you look around the world in every country where there. anti sex wars and low cost sex and leisure bridge occasion the levels of teenage pregnancies and abortions are much much
3:17 pm
higher michael as long as he's close is a thoughtfully and they're 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 a long time ago abandoned sex education and went for abstinence only to discourage young people having sex the end result was increased teenage pregnancies and rocketing levels of a child. he pairing what happens in this country uganda is comparing apples and pears completely inappropriate comparison i would suggest ever since we have seen the introduction of such hedge occasion 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 as

t.v.'s and teenagers and young people go out to see the bush and grow up we've seen all social indicators of things that happen to young people have risen elation to sexual matters it is proven throughout the world that early good quality age appropriate relationships extrication 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 for the most healthy which lead to the best and most prosperous society and what ultimately what's the best interest of every child. but the craze of rebooting traditional cartoons continuing disney is back in the spotlight for giving me a me too friendly make up or are takes a look and her weekly diary. dear diary you know me i'm generally a patient understanding person but really bear only so many injustices one can

suffer one percent the live action remake of everyone's childhood favorite sleeping beauty dropped i thought i'll give it a chance imagine my shock when a war is awoken from her sleep not by prince philip no not you but by molestus and herself no one comes. and. apparently it was problematic because a war didn't consent and maybe the prince wasn't how one true love a knife in the back of my childhood and then the little time classic cinder. well really actually it makes me so anxious just thinking about it but naively i still thought that disney could possibly destroy it well it turns out i was wrong just how many injustices in 100 minutes fosli the mice don't get to speak only they

regional council in the u.k. has been accused of spreading transphobia over international women's day celebrations with more on the story here shoddy edward started to. 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 sefton council in liverpool has been pressurised into removing flags being flown outside its town hall is simply red woman noun i don't feel well and while that might be the definition in the oxford english dictionary it's been deemed transphobia the flag flying at the moment is a hostile trans phobic dog whistle 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
3:24 pm
a potential issue regarding the messaging on the flag and southport town halls and have taken them down we have a proud history of supporting l g b t q plus riots across the borough we continue to support all members of all communities and want it looked like international women's day had been cancelled 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 if you like. 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 probably needs 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 genders all religions or anything but the problem i have is with the
3:25 pm
word transfer. the word phobic means that one has a fear of something i don't think that's the case and i don't i think the word is being brandished around as if it's. you know too with the. sense of other agendas well what the time to build on it seems like you cause on the bridge 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 or you call it flag offensive on a tweet because it use the dictionary definition of 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 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
3:26 pm
a cause or shut down any kind of truth or opinion that they don't agree with it's 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 record zina phobic or racist or homophobic or whatever it is. for this hour news wise but if you're looking for more head on over to our web site r.t. dot com for countless articles and interviews and all of our shows. as the great american boxer mama dolly once said he who is not courageous enough to

take risks will accomplish nothing in life risk averse is one thing that she want to coach is not from being a key member of the mit blackjack team to investing in promising migrant into print . but what is a risk and how do you know if it's worth taking the. time of the time corporations repeat the same mantra sustainability it's very important to excel or a transition to sustainable transport sustainability stay number man or a more equitable and sustainable world. they claim their production is completely harmless followed. us. companies want us to feel good about buying their products while the damage is being done far away and this is something else this must be going to mean and i
3:28 pm
mean look. this is the moon and knew this and we didn't want anyone and einstein theme then we understood superman and. max kaiser this is 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 of just retired recently with big bags of cash and they're disappearing. stacey max we're still in los
3:29 pm
angeles we're riding out the pandemic this week here then we're heading home but of course you can't have 10 demick 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 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
3:30 pm
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 so. and we've really seen since back in the great depression days and and world war 2 days yeah we're going to go to rationing remember world war 2 rationing became the standard way of dealing with supply shortages and in the case of medicine and food probably rationing tickets to buy j.p. morgan and jamie diamond that's no good prices they won't be able to make money and they're the ones behind the electronic food stamps right those are all jamie diamond so now that's going to go wide jamie diamond food rationing coupons of course the supply shock is being met with a supply of more cash everywhere you look hong kong was giving citizen.
