12:02 am

12:04 am
any difference at this point to their policies or for the global pressure make a difference and the saudi regime the saudi regime. looks highly to their international. image so that pressure is the only way to push this regime to take the right way now we have to be very clear this is an absolute monarchy and this court is the same as the general attorney who is in jail it's the same authorities that tortured them and put them and solidarity for a long time so. and so so so how do you get this this is. what's happening now is that happening after the pressure of the international community there's all these have no respect for a human rights or. some of the people and what we are
12:05 am
seeing as. jamal case and i am unsure and also the way that this all is how is true think this is a clear example that this regime how do we know. no consideration of our respect so only human life or any rights that people ask. but is is the international pressure that you're talking about making any difference at this point and we're reminded as well of course of the case of the saudi journalist. and his murder in the consulate in istanbul last year the saudis took took a lot of you know bad press if i can call it that way over that but it didn't seem to make it much of a difference and there are many countries that continue to make billion dollar deals with saudi arabia of everything from from from moms and investment and so on
12:06 am
. actually the pressure and specially after a. death i have met have made a lot of difference and situation now we've seen into the soul the saudi regime have asked change the courts just eight hours report that. the trial starts the ladies have no charges before they go and they're not allowed to have lawyers but they change it from the terrorism law tourism court the special court to a criminal court which is a good sign and down this this or do you you're right like they buy weapons saudi arabia is the biggest importer or buyer of what runs into war and there's a lot of lobbies that stunt with this and does street that try to. put the saudis above the international body but the fact as does all of these. and take their own
12:07 am
take their power from the international community and now the international community nobody can stand the fence anymore everything is clear and people and politicians are rules in gas of all it's because of because of standing down a solid euro jeepers this is a fascist regime this and they're standing with it abit limit so and sell x. easy money we don't have any element one minus one and signing checks so yes some politicians i would call them cheap all of this and zora and moral politicians would prefer our money and over our blood and over our our suffering but the fact is that. that the nations and the population. doesn't accept that so we are seeing a shift a big shift and the relation and we're seeing that the soldiers are getting this. so we're. the ones people like our easy money some politicians
12:08 am
dog but that's not that easy anymore especially with the mistakes that does all the regime is doing under mama and so much good to speak with you. in my thanks very much for being with us for more news on the trials of the saudi activists you can go to our website i just go to dot com there you find all you need to know about this story how teams of international experts are looking into why the ethiopian airlines plane went down near addus alabama on sunday the two black boxes of the boeing seven three seven max eight are being sent to europe for analysis several countries have now grounded the jet but boeing and the u.s. government say the plane is safe to fly reynolds reports from seattle. as investigators sifted through the wreckage outside addis ababa more and more of boeing's seven thirty seven max aircraft were being grounded in countries around
12:09 am
the world but not in the united states where aviation officials insist the aircraft is safe many u.s. airline passengers a flight attendants union and aircraft experts are calling for it to be grounded while in washington lawmakers planned hearings on aviation safety the seven thirty seven max. a should be grounded immediately. there is no reason for american fliers to be less safe than. china ethiopia argentina mexico and now apparently the united kingdom well i think out of an abundance of caution and frankly common sense it makes sense to ground aircraft that's been involved in two very tragic accidents and only six months speculation into the cause of the two separate crashes has
12:10 am
centered on flight control software several u.s. based airline pilots reported potentially dangerous behavior of the seven thirty seven maxes flight control system which they say plunged the plane into a steep dive before the crews disconnected the computer system and flew the aircraft manually. but boeing insists its best selling aircraft remain safe us the aviation agency requires the company to undertake a software enhanced meant that boeing says will be deployed on the max lead in the coming weeks boeing says the updates of maneuvering flight control and pilot display software would make quote an already safe aircraft even safer president donald trump spoke by phone with bo. knowing c.e.o. dennis mulan berg who has appeared with trump several times at events in recent years the call followed to trump tweets complaining that airplane said become too
12:11 am
complicated there is a precedent for a global ban in two thousand and thirteen u.s. officials ordered boeing to take its massive new dreamliner out of service to resolve a problem with batteries fires rather the entire worldwide fleet of all boeing's seven three seven max aircraft would cost the company somewhere between one and five billion dollars that's according to wall street analysts but that would be a cost that boeing would be well able to absorb the company just posted revenues of over one hundred billion dollars and that includes profits of more than ten billion dollars robert oulds al jazeera seattle. now one hundred fifty seven people from at least thirty five nationalities were killed in sunday's ethiopian jet crash thirty two of them were kenyan the highest number from any country catherine so reports on

a conspiracy on an unprecedented scale the justice department arrested almost fifty people nationwide in a scheme they say involved cheating on exams bribing coaches and exaggerating athletic ability in return children of the rich and famous gained access to some of the most elite universities in the united states with some parents paying huge sums of money this is a keys where they flaunted their wealth sparing no expense. to cheat the system sue so they could set their children up for success with the best education money could buy literally some spent anywhere from two hundred thousand to six and a half million dollars for guaranteed emission their actions were without a doubt insidious selfish and shameful among those accused of racketeering a charge commonly used for mobsters or the act as lori laughlin and felicity

12:26 am
. now this is a case that's upset a lot of people on social media for a bunch of different reasons that have less to do with the celebrities involved but more to do with perceptions of systematic inequality in the u.s. educational system now the most popular post that we saw about this story is from a contributor for forward dot com he mentions a couple of things that this case brings up for a lot of people online look at it here he says america is a country that will jail black women for trying to send their kids to decent schools force working class kids into student debt they can never pay off and accuse black kids of being quote to recruits while letting rich white people cheat the system now one of the cases that he references here is you know it's something that appears in my twitter feed all the time back in twenty eleven this woman here kelly williams bowler she was convicted of felonies and jailed for several days in the state of ohio just for enrolling her kids in a safer school district where her father lives that's after her home had been
12:27 am
broken into now keep in mind that many public american schools are funded with local taxes is another issue people are bringing up today so mostly white school districts end up receiving twenty three billion dollars more funding than those serving students of color that's according to a recent report on this issue finally there's a separate strand of conversation here on the parenting choices that were made you know sarah here says if you get caught it's your kids a whole life is essentially something that becomes a joke no one will ever believe these kids hard work had merits so this is all some of the students at the university of southern california have responded. to be honest it's sort of a disrespect to my heart when better wouldn't be good i mean just because you're is doesn't mean you can do whatever you want right and there are people who you know there are people who vote harder than me to be here but it's all legit droid we were you know but off to be here we do a lot of preparations like. to get the admission to yes see parents pay
12:28 am
a lot of money for us so for our to be so. like if i heard just someone to not answer yes with only like perpetration all the fake. the fake grace is quite unfair thing so we've heard from them we'd also like to hear your thoughts on the story you can get in touch with us on twitter using the hash tag it in his grid thanks sandra this is a story that's got a lot of people talking wanted to discuss that more now with robert schaefer is the public education director of fair test the national center for fair and open testing he joins us via skype from sanibel in florida thanks very much for being with us so this is something the shock many people. outside of the united states but as we saw in the some of the social media posts there it has a surprised a lot of other people because it reinforces this belief that the people with money
12:29 am
and connections will do anything they can to get their kids into the the best schools what's your view on that. well this is both the worst case of corruption in the college admissions process ever seen in the us and just a natural extension of the kinds of manipulation that people with money have done to get their kids into selective college kids from eighth grade in on parents who have the means by the services that improve their kids' chance from college it's advisors for twenty five or fifty thousand dollars who help their kids frame their resumes who tell them which volunteer efforts to engage in which kind of course the take and even write their college application essays in this case goes beyond that an ethical behavior into actually illegal where test scores were faked is a disability conditions were fabricated and admissions sports recruiters were
12:30 am
bribed to get that with kids into college yes so what do you do to combat against things like this with things that you to the people in this case were charged with something that was clearly illegal how do you fight that. well the people who are involved the illegal behavior need to be crime prosecuted. and have their day in court but the college admissions process needs to be changed to reduce the emphasis or a limited aid factors that can be so easily game like test scores already more than one thousand u.s. colleges and universities are test optional so the gaming and test prep and steroids that people buy to boost their kids' cores on the a c p n s a t no longer matter in the admissions process and many of the finest schools more than half the top liberal arts college kids in the country are already test optional only one of the schools in this corruption scandal had
12:31 am
a test optional policy and there was only one case that it was involved in most of the other schools rely heavily on test scores and they're easily gamed both legally and illegally. i want to ask you about the legal means that many parents do to try to get their kids into the best colleges. and here you touched on some of it there what do you say to those parents who have the money who say i'm going to do whatever i can legally to to give my kids the best opportunity to get into the best colleges and if there was someone else who didn't have the money but did they would they would be doing the same thing what do you say to that. well indeed in a free market economy parents can buy the services that their kids mean right up need right up to the limit of their checkbook but to create a more level playing field families need to understand that the important thing for and a college admissions process is not the most prestigious college it's not an arms
12:32 am
race to get the best brand name peered your son or daughter but rather to get them into a school where they fit in where they're thrive and that may not be the school with the biggest name but beating that out and getting that out of the american system is going to be very difficult ranking its college rankings and other factors lead people to believe that if you don't go to a name brand college you've somehow failed your trial and that's just not true plenty of people have great careers great public lives without going to those kinds of college kids we just need to eliminate the factors that are encouraging parents to engage in this crazy arms race good to get your thoughts on this robert safe in florida thanks for most of you. thank you. now we want to hear from you on these stories you can send us your comments to any of our online platforms on twitter

12:35 am
water supplies a marcum web has just arrived at an evacuation center in bangalore in malawi some malcolm what are the conditions there like. conditions really aren't very good actually evacuation centers little more than a collection of tissue farm buildings since we've been here a few trucks to arrive that people here believe have some sacks of made on no sign of any food distribution or anything yet people here fled their homes in a rush and they hardly brought anything with them many of them well cup in the middle of the night to find rising floodwaters the differential here say aside from that food distribution they're hoping to get some water tanks installed here in the coming days we'll also travel to some other areas where people are having with the any assistant who told let's take a look at the story now. everyone from the village of mclean are
12:36 am
sheltering in this half built hospital. they wanted to show us what happened to their homes. after four days of heavy rain last week swathes of southern malawi were flooded dozens of people have been killed . thousands of homes were destroyed. this is all that remains of an does he own a car carnies by the name of and i learned about the rain started when we were sleeping when we woke up we found the water level was rising fast so we walked to higher ground and waited there until people came in both and rescued as. the water levels low and now more storms are forecast in the coming days the people here can't afford to wait and see if it will happen again. some people have already started rebuilding their homes and you can see they're made almost entirely out of
12:37 am
natural materials these sticks are stuck into the ground between them read like this woven on and in the gaps they put mud it's all people here can afford but if it floods it gets washed away instantly. louis two hours rebuilding his that he's wondering what he and his family are going to eat in the weeks ahead his entire crop of maize was destroyed. the go go go love women are the great says this happened nobody has come to help us in this area but we are hoping for is for somebody to wake up and come to our help because we are suffering elsewhere in malawi's president peter motor reka has been visiting many of the affected communities promising help roger martin. will try to get funding for cement and iron sheets so that everyone who has been affected will benefit it takes time. back at mccain or at sunset to make our way back to
12:38 am
higher ground the government and charities provided food and shelter to many of the affected communities but not here. so the hospital hospital remains home and now the people of mccain are wondering if anyone will come to help. so malcolm we can see that night this is forming there right now where you are so the big question is where are so many of these displaced people going to sleep. in the last couple of days the red cross put up six tents just over there but not a way for laying out equipped for all the people. who are soundly so people with small children will be given priority to sleep inside that the rest be sleeping in i don't know if it's light enough to even see it but behind me this is the remains
12:39 am
of a farm warehouse it doesn't have any walls it's just a roof and a concrete floor those people that were lucky enough to be able to bring much from their homes will be sleeping on mountains for the rest it will be on the back from create some of the water levels have receded since the flooding began three even for the people that could get back to their homes now could try and get back to their point of course with no home left to sleep in and crucially as we saw in the story just that people's crops are being destroyed as well most of the people here are subsistence farmers schools in the crops are destroyed with nothing to eat and the chance of some strewed being given out here not for people hoping will happen in the coming days and of course they're going to stick around so at least they have something to. mark a way of life for us there and thank goodness no. i once again for those of you watching us on facebook live you're about to see the story of how an american actress is trying to avoid

thank. you have. if that find out what people are talking about in sport today his pizza american football is the answer has in one of the n.f.l. zz biggest stars adela bacon jr has been traded the league's highest paid receiver is living the new york giants and is on his way to the cleveland browns the deal
12:42 am
will be made official later on wednesday when the leads that business begins become will be reunited with fellow wide receiver java celebrity who played end on swift during his college days at louisiana state n.f.l. broadcast the michael calls and says of the browns a building an exciting team that can challenge for on its potentially is the best receiver in the league he certainly being the most spectacular but his his last couple of years with new york giants have been rather in and out with a little bit of controversy on the team quite a few injury absences and the question is how will he bear down to basically when he joins the browns now he joins of team that's really designed to break through to the top echelons of the n.f.l. this year he's got a quarterback at baker mayfield in his second year who had a very wide rookie season and ought to get better and he rejoins jarvis landry they were teammates in college and the two receivers will give cleveland a a layout
12:43 am
a layered approach to receiving in other words landry is great on the mid mid range passes across the middle of the old and back and has great going date and mayfield is the kind of quarterback who can make time for him soaked up throw balls and it's going to be very difficult for defenses not deal with the two of them but when you factor in as well they have a very good receiving tight end and david in-joke who they have a third receiver who's potentially very good in antonio callaway what he does is if you try to stop those two big threats and there are two it's. stablished crass receivers then you read something open you know for somebody else and given as well that nick chubb who like maybe it was a rookie last year had a great season running the ball for cleveland auckland simply i really think things are jelling for them their only real question will be in the line they traded one of their starting barge to the giants just a few days ago for
12:44 am

to try and get as many people out of that building out of the children in there but it's as if that is very tragic. unfortunately these sorts of collapses are nothing new in nigeria i think it was just two thousand and sixteen so not that long ago when more than a hundred people died in the church in the southeast of the country when that collapse just explain to us why that seems to be especially in a place like lagos which is obviously a very highly populated yes. and indeed just not the building impulse. the fact is there are no building regulations maintained in many of these places and people tend to agitation just or they simply as i said maintain the buildings and the areas that i am in at the moment where this happened this could like a file and it really is a warren of three some this lots of small shops and build things and move it she said all around ferry traffic. people say they will tell you very simply that

well let's turn to the break said crisis here in the u.k. now where there is still no consensus in parliament on how britain will depart the e.u. and that's with just sixteen days left until the u.k. is due to leave on tuesday britain's parliament overwhelmingly rejected prime minister to resign may's e.u. withdrawal deal for a second time two hundred forty two were for her proposal three hundred and ninety one against it politicians will vote again in three hours time this time on a motion which includes rejecting britain leaving the e.u. without a deal most members of parliament are expected to support that now if that passes on thursday they will then vote again this time on whether to extend the date for the u.k. leaving the e.u. which is currently sixteen days away that's the twenty ninth of march but that would need the approval of all the e.u. member states and the e.u. leaders say that the reason is withdrawal deal is the only one on the table get

good renewal of. the united kingdom still wants to leave the european union and wants to do so in an orderly fashion if that is still the intention of the united kingdom then this treaty which we negotiated with the government of theresa may for a year and a half this treaty is and will remain the only available treaty so crucial days and despite her failing voice to reason may has already been back in parliament discussing bracks it at prime minister's questions. i have a i may not have my own voice but i do understand the voice of the country they want. that is people want to leave the e.u. they want to entry movement they want to have our own trade policy they want to ensure laws are made in this country and judged in our core that's what the children of those that's what i continue to work to deliver. good deal has been
12:59 am
hotly rejected twice by this house by own precedented majorities and even the smalling the c.b.i. has said that no deal would be and i quote a sledgehammer to the economy. and went on to say there has been no consultation with business adding this is no way to run a country the reason her deal is now dead is because every step of the way the prime minister has refused to listen well lawrence lee joins us live now from westminster so lawrence on tuesday they voted not to go for to resign means the l. it seems that today they're going to vote not to leave without a deal so it almost seems like the u.k. parliament is backing itself up into a corner. it's it's a bit like watching parliament pull its own toenails out one by one without really explaining why it's whites doing it and then the absurdity of what's happening
1:00 am
today having as you said ruled out series amazed a lesbian acceptable for the hardcore policy is that it's a day they will almost inevitably rule out leaving the european union without a deal but it won't mean anything because they will still leave without a deal unless they can think of something else to do instead in the next fortnight will just over and they can't think of what else that thing is and so it's just absolutely absurd and you can hear m.p.'s on the radio in places like that describing themselves as being in a failing parliaments it is a flat crisis now for democracy in this country let's talk to i mean but it's who's head of politics at c.c.a. and newspaper fighting parliaments you think so absolutely i mean i think your analogy about them putting their time in i was out and i wonder why has to walk racially because the thing with these no you do votes they can no you know at the table they called deed i missed the e.u. agreed to the other.
