for us and she caught up with germany's economy minister. she asked him how worried he was about trade tensions and rising economic nationalism. why we have to be very cautious and concerned about some protectionist tendencies crowing in different countries worldwide but i found in this. conference wide consensus that we have to preserve a free and open market economy rolled wide that is rule based a respect for w t o rules because open and free market access means optimized our location of resources it means more drops better us and higher standard of living for millions of people worldwide germany is seen as part of the solution not us part of the problem and therefore there is an increasing interest

philosophy that is so important as. a loss of. lives that europe's banks are waiting with bated breath for the results of the latest. stress test on the financial sector the reports tests the resistance of the banking sector in the eventuality of a heavy crash the london based european banking authority and the european central bank put forty eight european lenders under the microscope together those accounts for more than seventy percent of bank assets across the eurozone among. eight german banks including the country's biggest lender dortch and six french lenders for each from italy and from the u.k. . let's bring in a man who's stress tested on a daily basis by me and my colleagues here in the studio down here in france with that what is this stress test good for and what exactly is being tested there.
2:24 pm
that was a good one garrett finally somebody was understanding me. but anyway let's talk about the lenders and their stress tests and investor compares that a little bit earlier and said this is like a yearly doctor's appointment for the lenders around the e.u. and also in norway from a starting point off their financial positions at the end of two thousand and seventeen the banks were confronted with a scenario where the european union's g.d.p. plunged by two point seven percent between two thousand and eighteen and twenty twenty on top of that the tests also simulated that unemployment would be rising by more than three per cent to a level that we saw the last time during the financial crisis in two thousand and nine the interesting thing is that this could be a potential scenario off the heart grex that the banks of course know that but nobody is really saying this officially i don't know what are you hearing there from the central bank other any candidate is likely to fail this stressed just.

an unconventional question could cheese be sensitive to music and importantly could it improve the flavor. but i'm convinced that humidity temperature and nutrients are not the only things that influence taste sounds ultrasounds and music can also have a physical effect or they seek since september the cheeses have been blasted with sonic masterpieces under supervision of the nearby university to test the effect. in this experiment it's a question of pairing different cheeses with different types of music here we have a rock we just took a very famous song from that zeppelin and. other cheeses are being mature to techno and one to mozart's magic flute. player has a favorite. i hope that hip hop cheese will turn out to have the most flavor.
2:27 pm
