starbucks c.e.o. howard schultz has announced he is retiring from the coffee company thirty seventy as he has transformed starbucks from a single coffee shop in seattle into a global brand most recently aligning the company with political issues like race and jobs and the privilege to use schultz says he's considering going into the public sector some people expecting a presidential run in twenty twenty shorts is an outspoken critic of us president donald trump and he might run against him as a democrat not have any stores and the german chemicals group by its very close to finishing its takeover of u.s. seeds dried monsanto the sixty three billion dollars buyout is set to close on thursday by is ditching the name monsanto though it's been a target of protest lawsuits for idiots that months on top. products will keep their names like roundup which contains the controversial herbicide life percent by insists that monsanto is crop protection technology and genetically modified seeds
10:14 am
are vital to feeding a growing global population. that's a lot to talk about with a man of the frankfurt stock exchange only the fire monsanto deal is worth sixty three billion dollars it's the largest ever foreign takeover by a german company our investors are following the final finishing touches right to the end. yes they sure are especially as it's involved with a capital raising issue buyer has of course incurred great debt low interest rates that seem as it seems is a favorable time to aid in the financing of this huge sum that it has to shoulder for the takeover but it also is issuing new shares and that's a relatively new piece of news this week and the new shares to the tune of seven billion dollars and that means of course that the value of the existing shares gets
10:15 am
watered down at the same earnings get spread out now to additional shares along with the old shares that's a slight negative reaction you see here but it sure is a big deal that everybody's talking about and people are of two minds about this having put monsanto into the into the mix putting at stake basically the good household the bayer name with this company which many see as reckless and. environmentally and health hazard people don't like that but analysts who study the industry say it's a very good fit good for the future for a buyer now you already mentioned the controversial months until name certainly i mean bio will drop that name. for image reasons presumably but you do think that will make a difference. no i don't think it'll make a difference other companies drop other companies names to when they when they take over deutsche bank for example took over bankers trust bankers trust the name was
10:16 am
never heard from again they took the people in this case you can see it is a gesture that monsanto will disappear we hear that the americans don't like that but it won't raise the issues that surround what monsanto did so far and what is still doing with the products an analyst i talked to said he'll be interested to see if there are any suits that might incur expensive legal costs in. to to that in the future all right and only just briefly your take on starbucks c.e.o. schultz and his possible political ambitions. it's a pretty spectacular move he's an attractive personality a very successful entrepreneur starbucks thrived under his leadership it's a company had some bad news recently but with a very good story and it multiplied the share price for its shareholders if he moves into the political realm it won't be easy business men moving without office experience into the presidency while donald trump that without holding public
10:17 am
office previously but he did it on a populist message childes having endorsed the democratic side it will be a stretch but it will be interesting to see how he builds us up in the next few years it will be a first if he makes it on a moderate message on an conventional message into the white house and then it could certainly be an exciting election campaign that would leave us in frankly i think is a much right. well the city of palma on the spanish island of majorca has decided that from july the first residential apartments can no longer be rented out to tourists aims to fight mass tourism in the summer and stop rising rents but travel as enjoys staying in apartments instead of hotels and some of the island fear the measure could end up harming the tourism industry there the last guest has just left and asked to her about is getting her vacation home ready for the next
10:18 am
holiday makers the me you can exit is allowed to rent a house that belonged to her grandparents even off to the first of july or to nominate their fortunately this is a detached house and although it still belongs to palma i was able to get a license. here. the ban doesn't apply to esther because it only affects apartments. she should be pleased because the scarce supply means there's more demand for her house but she shakes her head i think they're going their country i think the terrorists are freed you've heard that a lot is changing here and i think that scares them off this is not me your car is just beginning and the capital palma there's no sign of tourists it's quiet but the island government's chief tourist officer defends the new rules and points out the mood in society. and a best vantage vos a young turk quite a few voices in the lyric islands who agree that we can no longer grow in summer.
10:19 am
this is a serious issue because our primary objective is sustainability and that's why we can't take more people in the summer so we can distribute them better throughout the year but not in summer than in my skin timid and so what is the point of the ban it's not that private rentals and palma only for britain and some of my dear has perhaps represents five hundred landlords and strongly criticizes the ban the body without it it was the first time in history that the profits of tourism were whitely distributed in society the middle class benefited from it and with the new restrictive rules with these bans they managed to get profits back into the hands of the big hoteliers. and that's what the little. as expected spanish hotel chain really hotel supports the new rules. if some more cautiously. might have it it was this business that demanded an after this first
10:20 am
summer we will see what the new measures will bring we believe that this is fair that the number of private rental should be controlled as well as the quality and taxation of this tourist spend. it with it that is to come that's what many think in palm itself the boston restaurants are already complaining that gas numbers are decreasing maybe the holiday apartment is have been scared away. terry is here now with some worrying news about plastics that's right monica very worrying indeed it's world environment day today but it's not necessarily a day to celebrate the u.n. is using the occasion to raise the alarm about plastic pollution calling it a planetary crisis plastic is cheap lightweight and durable but it's generally not biodegradable meaning more and more plastic waste is piling up on our planet the main culprits are single use plastic items which make up half of all the plastic we
10:21 am
use in particular plastic bottles and plastic bags around the world some one million plastic drinking bottles and one million plastic bags are purchased every minute and it's our oceans that suffer most from this plastic epidemic altogether up to thirteen million tons of plastic are washed into the sea every year smothering coral reefs and threatening vulnerable marine wildlife only last week a pilot whale that died in thailand was found to have eight kilos of plastic waste in its stomach including eighty plastic bags. well that whale is only the latest victim of our throw away society let's go now to the head of d.w. environment team sonya dean she joins us from boston hi see you saw you there just getting wired up can you hear me. yeah i can hear you fine great ok well let's go with this the u.n. says that plastic pollution as you heard now report this there has become
10:22 am
a planetary crisis what sort of solutions are being developed need to address this problem well i think the solution begins really from the bottom up so in that friends just people being aware of their plastic usage is really important so obviously reduce reuse recycle the same thing that we've been hearing for ages but at some point that needs to come to a policy level so the governments need to take action against plastics and develop policies which in some places are really happening we see in parts of africa or wanda kenya bans on plastic bags that are being very strictly enforced and in the e.u. for example the european union as well that they're looking at in fact planning to ban single use plastic the whole array of them so i think it starts from the bottom and moves through policy and hopefully can reach success not so we've got some
10:23 am
policymakers waking up to this problem all their bio degradable since we're talking about plastics or other bio degradable environmentally sustainable sustainable alternatives to the plastics that we use every day. well yeah absolutely and in fact one sector i didn't mention just there was business in the business sector i think that market is really ripe i think two thousand eight hundred is kind of a breakthrough year for awareness around this plastic pollution problem this massive global problem and i think that a lot of businesses are also waking up to that and they're coming to coming up with a lot of new solutions i mean there's all kinds of really just an explosion of possibilities with biodegradable straws biodegradable kind of plastic bags or alternatives that are based on other economic models like the sharing economy you have this scheme including in berlin and other places in germany where folks who had to the cafes can take
10:24 am
a reusable cup to go and then to pick it up at one place and drop it off at another these kinds of schemes are really taking off in a lot of parts of the world so absolutely there are alternatives including biodegradable ok so that's moving along to we've seen some movement on the business front and the technical part of that but ultimately it's a behavioral thing you mentioned this to earlier world environment day this year has the tagline if you can't reuse it refuse it if societies like ours are totally geared toward convenience are people really going to follow that maxim. well i don't know if they'll follow it right from the get go but it's a good place to start thinking about it and i think that's really the most important is to as a first step become aware as a consumer of your behavior and the impacts that your behavior has for example you know like myself i try to reduce my think plastic so i can eliminate everything i buy toilet paper in a plastic bag i'm not going to skip the toilet paper but what i do is i then reuse
10:25 am
the plastic bags with the twenty comes in as the liner for my rubbish bin in my bathroom so that's just one small step in that kind of beginning to become aware and that's really the first time so thanks for that advice thanks for your analysis on you dean head of d.w.m. byron and team joining us there from balts. now moving on to sports doctors say two huge mistakes by liverpool goalkeeper louis colliers and their champions league final defeat to real madrid could have been because of concussion the german was caught on the head by real captain sergio ramos minutes before it is his first blunder which allowed to spend years to take the lead in european soccer showpiece last month he later made another error which gabriel a three one victory now he was distraught afterwards and underwent medical checks
