the fifty six year old suspect in a manhattan court among the charges threats against former presidents assaults against former and present federal officials and mailing explosives across state lines the prosecutor's not talking much about motives at this particular stage it tourney general jeff sessions saying that it does appear that the suspect was partners and in his approach so motive is one of the things being investigated president trump has distanced himself from any engagement with the suspect insisting that the urge to be at fault and are using this event to pursue him and the republican party but prosecutors note that is one common trend among all those who receive the pipe bombs and that is that they have been the subject of disparaging tweets by president trump in recent months. still ahead on al-jazeera

1:05 pm
more heavy rains as we head through the next few days i think for saturday will be stretching its way down through parts of iran and it will be around the caspian sea and towards the northern parts of the gulf where we see the wettest of the weather here in fact this system here looks particularly know if that will then think its way southwards breaking up a bit as it does say but still for some of us around the arabian peninsula there's going to be some fairly lifea showers as we head through the day on sunday so a bit closer then here is that very wet weather just to the southwest in parts of iran but since its way southwards and then it's line here as we head through sunday so doha is likely to see more thunderstorms and perhaps we'll see some in riyadh as well meanwhile towards the southern parts of africa largely fine and dry for many of us here on ten and a revokes getting away with a warm day about twenty seven degrees and further west they should also be plenty of warm sunshine to enjoy as well cape town should get away with a nice day twenty eight. the waiver sponsored by qatar and greece.

them seeing those the headlines talked engineer is next. michael the. world is going on the. sea. is it real. the design of online games have reached a new level of sophistication appealing to a lot of people according to the world health organization
1:22 pm
a new disease has occurred as a result it's called gaming disorder it's defined as quote a pattern of behavior characterized by impaired control over gaming with increasing priority given to gaming over other activities and goals and it says it comes after the development of treatment programs but what does the disease really mean and how could it actually be treated. today on talk to al-jazeera a conversation with dr richard graham as a car interest who treats people addicted to online games. graham thank you very much for talking to al-jazeera can you start by describing what happens inside the brain the kind of mental chemical process that goes on when you are immersed in a video game what happens when we're immersed in
1:23 pm
a video game is that the brain starts to activate the sort of exciting reward systems neurological pathways that are associated with excitement impressionable activities and of course it makes us want to keep doing that more more and so game designers and perhaps social media platforms have learned how to activate those systems to keep us in an on screen for as long as possible and obviously all cases . confidential but just give us some idea where all of the patients that you treat and how they are affected by excessive gaming or just obsessive behavior with technology the most common type of problems that are found to my work is we're usually a parent sometimes a school makes contact a young man usually run fourteen to fifteen years is starting to attend school
1:24 pm
less and perhaps do less well in subjects. they've often products of that point being very able and on the whole find my work that most of the young people i work with are extremely bright and offer with quarter good few arguments to bring to their appointments to about why i'm wrong but it's that sort of concern that starts to kick in around the mid teens where of course we're also seeing that time in life where perhaps for the first time you're going to be assessed with say g.c.s.e. exams and then later a levels in a much more public way and we know from other studies that young people are feeling really stressed by school and one of the ways they cope is through technology but of course that can become a really sort of unhelpfully positive escape that means they keep going back to it when perhaps attending to some of the offline challenges would also be helpful but
1:25 pm
doesn't that show that gaming isn't perhaps an addiction or disorder in and of itself that it is coping met mechanism used to deal with an underlying problem whether it be depression or anxiety or stress and something else that might be happening in in life the results of ways that we can start to do something that in a sense originally is a coping strategy to help with what might be the ordinary pressures of life sometimes more extreme maybe bullying or family pressures conflicts between parents that can be all sorts of reasons. but then i think where we start to move into the territory of addiction is what much of what one point being almost a healthy way of trying to cope with some stresses starts to have a grip of it so and that person is no longer able to have quite the control over their use that they feel compelled to keep increasing the amount of whatever it is again a substance or gaming so this is about the loss of control the loss of control is
1:26 pm
absolutely key to an addiction but also when they do try to stop they do get that withdrawal reaction which is quite hard to understand from a behavior but it's very real for any games out to a gambling addict that they just feel so terrible when they try to stop but it kind of nurtures them again to go back to where they were before you mentioning drugs and alcohol that that those are very different types of addictions and they with gaming it it's it's something that is based around an activity it's not as though you are injecting anything it's not as though you are drinking any toxic substances i think is really important to remember that when we do ingest a drug or take some outhaul that is modifying our brain chemistry and there are behaviors that will also modify brain chemistry somebody might go for a long run because they release endorphins
1:27 pm
a sort of stress hormones that again can give a bit of a high some some euphoric feelings that make them want to keep going now there's nothing injected during that but the impact on the brain may not be so different from somebody who is using drugs so we have to remember that all processes whether it's something you do or something you take will have some impact on brain chemistry is it just about environment or a particular set of circumstances in life or might there also be a biological underpinning to. the sort of person that might be more susceptible to extreme behavior i think we can certainly see that there might be certain personality characteristics somebody who's more impulsive might struggle to control themselves more than others but i have to say in my work i have yet to see such a clear personality profiles that might have a genetic basis to them that i can say definitely pre-tape predispose someone to an
1:28 pm
addiction but then what about the other factors at play because of course it is the job of software developers game make is to keep you hooked on on what it is that they are producing how do they suggest the player into into staying with it. i think if i knew all the mechanisms that would keep people in the game i could probably make more money than i do as a psychiatrist however there are some fundamental things the sort of principle of persuasive design. is i think both unhelpful for the digital economy in the long term because it's a sort of race to get people more moral screen to the point where it will affect everyone's health more day to just simple factors like the game that you're not allowed to pause and save where you've got to live for young people it's incredibly
1:29 pm
distressing to get to a certain point in the game and then their parents say it's time to eat and they just don't want to stop because it want to lose all of that on the simple piece of functionality would actually make a huge difference if they could pause i think the fact that they can't pause the game means that they're kind of stuck there but it's a feature that sounds as though it's deliberately designed to stop you from well you know taking a break into the toilet getting something to that something is going to keep you that but. i was also going to ask about the concern over video game addiction has been around for years hasn't it been intended and thinks it's been around since the eighty's space invaders this then but then has something changed in recent years that perhaps makes it more addictive now than it used to be i think when we're thinking about videogames addiction now what we have to remember is that we're seeing a convergence of many different desires and rewards that come together in the experience of game play and for me there was
1:30 pm
a real step change when i was working with young people and they started moving from multiplayer games which they could now play online with people around the world gives a halo i think one of the first ones that came to my attention and that was kind of exciting and buzzy but when they started playing the massive multiplayer games one then gets into a large group for crowd experiences that i think amplified those trends even more on the bars of being part of something that's massive and online. i think is a significant part of what goes on one only has to look at the phenomenon of fortnight which train digital global level in the most massive way and it to the point where one might be more worried about someone who wasn't playing it for the young people that were because they were all swept along and some astonishing crowd like process to be online in the game for as much of the times they could i suppose
1:31 pm
the other factor. the other point is that you don't need an expensive computer or a console to play games we carry screens around in our pockets. you know a lot of these video games start out for free so really you can play anytime anywhere does that build addiction by stealth i think there's a principle the lore accessible something is. the more possibilities for problematic use an addiction to occur we see it say without the whole around the pricing of the alcohol all around licensing laws and when you can get hold of it. now when we migrate to the world of technology we're now in a world of internet everywhere it's possible for a young person to move through their environment without have a been disconnected they certainly wouldn't switch their phone off and devices are becoming cheaper it's possible to buy
1:32 pm
a tablet almost for less than it would take to cost to take a family out for a day and so of course with free games and low priced technology. public why fight all sorts of factors we're making it possible to keep home with those experiences whether it's mobile gaming or something more sort of extensive in fact in a city like london i've known gamers just living in parts of the city where they can whole county public wife i don't even need a broadband connection in the home and that's quite a challenge than to do with it then again now is gaming any different to the other parts of our modern interconnected lives facebook instagram tweets have a number of friends a number of like the notifications all this is just as addictive isn't it i think we can see the similar sort of processes of addiction with social media in the way you describe it. but there is something i think about the competitiveness that
1:33 pm
particularly comes with gaming that it can maybe one of those additional drivers to just give it a try on social media in terms of. keeping you wanting to go back to improve your rank how then do you treat this type of addiction when we started out. at night and go to hospital and the approach to treating a young person was often to start with a digital detox. i think the level of immersion was so great that it was very difficult for that young person to even think about a world beyond the game because there was so inside it and so compelled to keep playing when we tried to do the offline as outpatients. there were sometimes extreme reactions sometimes such as the station aggression the police could be called violence could erupt this is if it stopped gaming it stopped altogether you got caltech and the cold turkey was extremely difficult for families
1:34 pm
to bear the young person themselves modules would become because distressed and panic and sometimes place themselves at risk of harm to themselves and that was scary and so the service was set up to provide a safe space to support people but i was also learning from the families i was working with that sometimes they would do something spontaneous that might involve the family members almost have an intervention where they talked about how they were going to stop the access to the cave or even the internet which is often easier and they would do something sometimes they would go for a holiday somewhere without internet. sometimes they would go camping something where the old person with them be immersed in all sorts of activities and sort of interesting things to do that didn't involve. blood did it work or that was the problem it did. what i found was that. the patients i was working with or their
1:35 pm
families are often coming back from those times but you can't be on holiday all the time oh maybe you can i think well the interesting thing is that once you take that step you sort of wake up to the fact that something else is going on around you and they're actually might be some impact on your life props you're missing friends no longer come and knock to see whether you want to join them in a trip to the cinema or whatever or that you realise that you're going to have to repeat your year at school because you've missed so much and those sorts of impacts of course can drive you back into the game as if being aware of what you've lost is too painful but with the right support readjustment enables a different conversation to start about how you might strike a different balance maybe for a while you can't game you've just got too much to do it's too risky but you were just describing some very good stream forms of behavior when it is when the
1:36 pm
player is separated from being able to do as they wish is that have you seen a role then for pharmaceutical intervention is that something that could happen do you have a prescribed drugs for this back in the early days of my work i did think gaming at times seemed to be associated with depression of mood and on a few occasions prescribed antidepressants. i think somewhat to my shame later i thought the digital detox had a more powerful and beneficial impact on someone's mood for those that can and to take prolonged periods of perhaps even a month the sort of recovery of the brain and improvement of the mood was so fish better than anything i had been able to achieve before that it made me think as we can see if someone's abusing stimulant drugs into the brain just becomes exhausted and if they take a break from that the mood in the brain recover quite naturally what the nice
1:37 pm
eighty. one who might be watching this who has a family member spending too much time in front of a screen or a video game i think walks any from issue to is firstly not take a church mental position one of the first steps over take to do is just try and reduce the conflicts about the game because it's that level of heated argument and sometimes physical aggression that it can often leads the young person to feel under certain circumstances or they stop that activity and so you sort of tap into the rebelliousness that might also be a driver and they came in. let's turn to the question of responsibility as artificial intelligence virtual reality technology becomes more pervasive what role do social media and gaming companies play in prevention of unhealthy behavior is.
1:38 pm
i think for all developers of technology you know they need to embrace the possibility of unintended consequences. not to acknowledge for the purposes of litigation the need to sort of defend themselves against inappropriate. complaints that the games or whatever technology has had adverse effects but that we need to move towards a world of transparency in ethical design which i know everyone's going to be anxious about. because of course all game designers all producers of technology themselves are in a highly competitive arms race with each other trying to produce those products that are going to be added to the fortnight of the next season this is exactly it the these companies design and build business models applications software
1:39 pm
to keep you there and to keep you there for as long as possible that's not going to change i think if we continue to mine the business model that we perhaps drifted into some ten years ago when the social media companies were looking at how to sustain businesses. we have ended up in a world of persuasive design by keeping people on screen for as long as possible so they see those advertisement so they make those in a purchases that it can sustain the businesses it's going to be exhausting of of us all but also of the business model and so at some point there needs to be a reappraisal of how we sustain the good aspects of technology maintaining the ethics that keep person able to think and able to live well apple and google recently came out with some new tools and managing screen time you can check how often you looked at your phone off to bed time or how long you've spent on
1:40 pm
instagram and these sort of technological change is a positive thing or will they really not make much difference unless you sell. regulate i think we need to go further i think we need to embrace a model of digital world being where we're starting to be a bit more precise about how we can use the technology in a way that enhances our health and wellbeing or at least doesn't damage it so that we can actually not just say it's fine to game or it's not find a game or use social media or not social media but how to use it and in that sense i still think the research that facebook commissioned from i think michigan university about the use of social media last year was really helpful so people who were just passively scrolling and kind of not deciding how they were using the social media good friend of just going with the flow seem to have a more negative impact on their mood than those people that used it meaningfully to
1:41 pm
connect with the people that they wanted to respond by posting and of course you could argue that facebook is still saying. you're using facebook and that's a good thing but i do think if we use it well we could avoid a lot of these problems but. would you say that there might be a need to go one step further is that government intervention or legislation needed here i think you fully seriously consider the industry is struggling in its ability to understand the unintended consequences of a business model that may once have been quite reasonable of a level of global competition that is making everyone anxious and driven to to keep going and at this point i think it's worth remembering that even a company like netflix where there's a subscription model. the c.e.o. last year was still able to say that his competitor was asleep. so being the
1:42 pm
biggest the trillion dollar company whatever it is that is driving these companies does need to be recognized for what it is and if the users of services are paying the price for unbridled competition and regulation to step in an issue of this sort of well being of uses the safety of. happiness and future health i think that's a good try to but that isn't something many of these companies are taking into consideration now or about schools what about education what can be done that to raise awareness about the way we relate and interact with technology to mean to say that it should be it should happen in a in a smart and balanced way. i think schools can do a great deal in terms of helping this have a positive relationship with technology establishing healthy habits early in life is a fantastic way of being able to support their maintenance later on so getting it right
1:43 pm
as early as possible is a really good idea and that's why i don't necessarily go along with the idea of no screen time under two years because i think learning how to be on screen but also step off screen as early as possible learning good habits and being able to manage that self-control is great schools can do a great deal they can teach us about well being i know some schools teach their pupils now about sleep and about it sort of almost miraculous quality of being able to refresh and replenish the body and support happiness and all sorts of cognitive developments i mean i recently learned and i feel ashamed that when you sleep well you release growth hormone you're actually literally grow better when you sleep well and so then looking at how social media will gaming can disrupt your sleep i think in people who are always interested in neuroscience start to understand the
1:44 pm
why where they get frustrated is being told don't do something without having an explanation. had teachers in this country are also starting to support parents in setting good bed time sort of habits of no screen after a certain time and they say to children when they start at the schools they expect them to. manage that some schools are running token systems where you have to earn the number of tokens to get time to play games like fortnight so there are lots and lots of ways that school starting to embrace that looking to the future and the way video games might we shape our lives you have realistic depictions of life in virtual reality you have these in massive complex three dimensional experiences going on will it be possible for those that choose to do so to live their life completely in a virtual reality without it being seen as negative or addictive but something that
1:45 pm
