the difficulty for a show such as the giants. is to create scenarios that reflect the history of the city where it's playing. in a word and that was not so hot the people in this region have always had to battle the north sea and keep the water at bay so koku concocted a story and watch in chile and comes to help the one hundred fifty thousand humans came to watch the story unfold as the giant divers dog for a look for him accompanied by her playful puppy. philippine shoes have their work cut out for them two teams take turns jumping off a platform while clinging to cables to raise the feet of a giant human chains a speed of one kilometer per hour. others have to move the sounds.

the people remove the feet they have to make sure that they don't jump into the audience because it's quite a problem sometimes because the audience is quite close and you don't want to knock people. also something like that so it's very challenging to make sure that each drum straightforward. and that you don't run into people. like me take the girl and the dog take a rest in front of the old or her from the famous leaning tower of labor. or they're there now don't lose their people and that's a story thing about roads that's why people love them because they stop being puppets they stop being marionettes and you just look at the munich at their face you look at their emotions and their movements you watch and take in their story.

12:41 pm
i'd better do now. you know that might get them to feel. once a month patrick meyer gives courses in wheelchair skating even those who don't want to enter competitive sport find the wheelchair training helps increase their independence. it's a form of self determination because it's what makes a real difference if you can get up onto a sidewalk yourself without help from others. that's something that skating does for you it gives you confidence. everybody needs to be able to move around movement is everything. in the lead up to a tournament you're in patrick meyer is out on the halfpipe every day he trains for up to six hours a day skating is clearly much more than a hobby for him. to skate me. but if i didn't have skating i wouldn't be able to get out of bed it inspires me to keep going. and that doesn't only apply to skating but also two other day to day problems i have to face i take the same approach

action the energy proved infectious and you know the audience abandoned their seats and started to jump around. frankie has come a long way. when thinking about our carbon footprint you probably don't consider that the food you eat also contributes greatly to it in fact by some estimates food production including growing farming processing transporting cooking and so on accounts for at least one fifth of global carbon emissions so how can we reduce our so called food print one company cafeteria in sweden has an interesting idea.
12:48 pm
from a hearty meal to deep fried foods to a healthy salad most campaigns offer a range of dishes but here in golf and or every meal comes with information on its carbon footprint head chef care law says it's more appetising than it might sound i mean we don't change so much but we try to when we were buying our meat to try to buy meat and food it makes motive for a minute like. beef and more fish more shrieking and more small these are. the production of food generates a considerable amount of c o two. dogs would bring those on advises campaigns in restaurants on how to make their menu more climate friendly. but it's that you should be able to find private information where you find food basically and to make a dent in the climate so a mission to cross your hopefully the one. just opting for more fruit and
12:49 pm
vegetables and occasionally for going meat can help but does the extra information really change diners eating habits and usually take this favorite dish i think you can. be said to show you from a same time how can you. help me to shoot. for something basically. i tend to go for the vegetarian option anyway and knowing that it's better for the environment as well means it makes sense to choose that more off as i take my notes are you seeing this it will probably give me remind me one more time. it's about the numbers and sometimes he would effect. so these small reminders could help consumers lean towards a healthier and more climate friendly choice. and finally it's time to take a trip and today we're going to explore the italian island of elba thanks to a viewer request from guatemala daniel wrote in to us wanting to know more about

12:52 pm
the island has about two hundred beaches no two of them alike if you are lucky you might find one just feel selfish. if you arrive after a long hike you have the feeling of having truly accomplished something. like climbing a mountain peak but of course it's very nice in a canoe or on a ship. if you are looking for a comfortable but nevertheless thrilling way to reach the top of the elvis highest mountains take the cable car in mary qana in the northwest of the island in just twenty minutes it will take you to the peak of money take up on e one thousand nine hundred meters the highest point on alba. it has a view over the entire twenty seven kilometer long island. from here you can see the italian mainland to raney or coast with. the town closest to elba. where the ferry set off for puerto rico i continue on from here. from
