question donald trump emerged from the white house to address supporters it's the u.s. president's 1st official appearance since contracting coded 90. times physicians will say when trump last tested negative. for covert 19 only that he's been cleared to resume campaigning and while the white house insisted saturday's event wasn't a campaign rally it sure seemed like one attacking his opponent former vice president joe biden multiple times sleepy joe biden has betrayed black and latino americans if you think you can run this country you're wrong track was addressing black and latino conservatives who are part of a movement known as blacks it or black exit the movement believes the democratic party has betrayed communities of color and is encouraging them to vote republican if the left gains power they'll launch a nationwide crusade against law enforcement and they've already done that. trump
7:03 am
is playing on voter fears of the sometimes violent unrest that gripped several u.s. cities for months this past summer following protests over the death of george floyd a black man killed while in police custody. trump hopes his law and order message will help him win over white suburban voters in addition to minority communities hurt by the violence but time is running out for a president currently trailing joe biden in the polls right now american jews are actually voting their early voting either in person or their mailing in their ballots so there's not much time for the president if he's going to turn this around to do so prior to cope with 19 trump had built on historically low unemployment for minorities but since covert 19 those jobs have been wiped out and once again communities of color are suffering economically in greater numbers than
7:04 am

7:05 am
as normal but you know you certainly have a better idea if he was more closely interacting with people and i think that will get that once he regains the campaign trail and has more interaction with the press reporters they will get a much better idea of exactly how he's doing and how he's feeling but from today it's certainly he's trying to project the image of that he's returned to normal just less than 3 weeks left of the election now up to you know $50000.00 cases per day still around. today in the message he's trying to project is kind of business as normal we need to return to the economy as soon as possible we don't want to shut down the economy again and so that certainly with these events with the rallies the large rallies that airplane hangars and things like that he would like the subject to be anything but coronavirus so close to election day and it's kind of a mixed message not just whether he's you know could infect people or as a risk to them because exactly you know if you still positive and you know

7:14 am
is looking to winter temperatures if you like which are in the thirty's and sometimes the high twenty's there is not all that low yes admittedly we're still talking about middle thirty's for the most part is still quite warm in quite a few places and because of the recent dry and hot weather the fire risk is realized in syria jordan parts of lemons fastow burnings foreigner the weather and stop them of course the weather remains draw nothing changes very much the next couple of days the monsoon trough which appears in the middle of tropical after it was just again the rainy season is with us so even though it's there in south sudan the showers still in ethiopian somalia concentrations bit further south dale congo for example like the tour follows the rift valley run down as well they are in centers where the heavy rain is forecast to be always in the form of thunderstorms and that stretches right way down as through zambia to botswana zimbabwe and south africa not in the satellite picture this is the frequent repeat but every now and

7:18 am
a previous ceasefire lasted more than 26 years but the status of nagorno karabakh went on resolved a ceasefire allows both sides to assess the capabilities of each other and for the armenians there must be a new appreciation of the technically advanced and destructive weaponry that the adversary hands. what has surprised armenians in karabakh is turkey's open support for azerbaijan if one of the results were a direct involvement of told keep and i don't see that told his going to pull out from the region it means that we have to somehow you know change some geopolitical approaches so far with state strengths and. for the string should strengthen our relations with brows of countries but i shot united states iran and china. in the is very town of tartar these buildings were hit by armenian artillery
7:19 am
before the ceasefire we don't support the ceasefire our enemy shall face what they deserve maybe 10 times more than what they did to us before. these were homes built for some of the 10s of thousands of his areas displaced from territory next to karabakh that armenia talk in the 190124 war now they're on the move again i would issue is that an international community or a serious group or chairs should take responsibility and transforms that current moment to a change in momentum of status quo into the durable peace is a particular focus on israel of the armenian friends are quite that if there is a president. russia says armenia and azerbaijan have agreed to substantiate if peace talks for them to work both sides will have to make the sort of compromises on territorial sovereignty that they've never been willing to make before. we live in bern it's meant. to panic nagorno-karabakh. the former president of

7:23 am
president mohamed a body called for swift investigation and punishment a policeman responsible for the killing that led to the current round of violence. but many protesters say the only action that will keep them off the streets is the government doing what it's feel to do so far. is bending this pressure and to rope rescored for good. protests says it is rather defied coated 19 restrictions to demand prime minister benjamin netanyahu resign this is the 16th straight weekend of demonstrations as netanyahu faces corruption charges they're also angry about his handling of the pandemic last month israel imposed a nationwide lockdown ahead of religious holidays the netherlands now has one of the worst crime effect across the virus infection rates in europe as case numbers
7:24 am
and hospital admissions bloomed but that hasn't yet led to a tightening of restrictions for government anxious not to restrict people's liberty so the. only people with flu like symptoms can be freely tested for cope with 19 in the netherlands if they're lucky enough some say they had to wait up to 4 days to get an appointment at one of the testing centers infection rates have gone up dramatically and have reached an international high in the past week hospitals are struggling to treat patients and have had to cancel operations the situation is very serious in the netherlands particularly in amsterdam duhigg on the road 2 of them were short of hospital births were still have some ice you capacity there with the rapidly increasing number of corona patients we also very concerned says we will run out of i.c.u. capacity. after the 1st wave the authorities implemented a test and trace policy in an effort to contain new infections but due to recent
7:25 am
explosive numbers contact tracing of infected people has become impossible not of hope none since its 1st instructions the level and still struggling to class people with covert symptoms every day thousands can be tested due to a lack of capacities in laboratories somehow as well say this is one of the reasons the government covert response was failing dramatically and you need strong leadership that's the other thing lacking according to a team of experts given input to the government. who worked on the sars epidemic in singapore and in my point of view this is absent in the netherlands and i think this has led basically to collect off an adequate and clear coordinated response but the governments are this is a democratic country we can't apply the same rules as they're applied in china and singapore this is a crisis in a crisis he will need leadership. so i think that argument falls short in the case
7:26 am
of an emergency she blames the government for putting the responsibility solidly on individuals about whether to wear a face mask in shops the government made a turnaround last week after months of saying mass don't protect against the virus it's now advising people to wear one and i think some situations is better because now it's like in some places you do have to wear them in some places you don't so confuse a lot of people and for example in a supermarket you don't think about bring your face mask i think it's good that in the netherlands we have freedom of. choice you know we are smart people you know and. not people with the highest cold with infection in the world i know i know despite the rapidly rising numbers the government doesn't want to impose stricter measures as of yet prime minister it is called the dutch public childish and even and i guess stick for not following social distancing guidance but if infection rates continue to go up you may just might be announced soon step

7:29 am
surveillance by the employer the psychological effect on employees could be greedy and significant now the work course of the home office is the laptop which is also a very effective spying toll yes you can put tape over the camera try to muffle the microphone and scan it for hidden spyware but in the large majority of cases employers will actually be doing their monitoring in plain sight. that is certainly the view of security expert ben marks but i think that now as a matter of course people taking new jobs are going to have to give away this right that if they working from home and using a work computer they are going to have to give their employer commit permission. to monitor their work product on their work computer but even with employee consent ethical questions remain like what's that consent worth if it's a requisite for keeping your job and this academic has more maybe you have 2 or 3
