this is news coming to you live from berlin the dangers of being a journalist in me and my increasing numbers of reporters in the country are being locked up simply for doing their job is the de facto leader aung sun suu cheat determined to silence the critics we have a special report coming up. on that america and her cabinet meet the polish
counterparts at the time the strained relations with walsall immigration recriminations for world war two and a gas pipeline between germany and russia are just some of the issues putting a strain on their ties. and you could make it a cheese maker wants to improve the taste of his a. plane heavy metal and ship to his truck loads of jeans. celebrating hundred deals of the martin drum kits one kick drum set and abs on the hot seat of the music really good marriage from desperate at a small. kind of a very warm welcome to you i'm. do journalists and men module in connection with their
reporting of the rohingya crisis are expected to file a piece this week the reuters report is valon and trolls who was sentenced to seven years in prison while investigating the alleged massacre of a hang up muslims during a military crackdown last year there was widespread international condemnation of the trial detail views southeast asia correspond boston hotting reports say appears to be a wider push by them in my government to stifle freedom of the press. a worker strike on the outskirts of yangon. things get heated when protesters confront the police. lying pits and why is right in the middle reporting it live on facebook. but situations like these are not the dangers journalists like him fear most it's criticizing the powerful which has once again become a present danger in me and mark
a risk blanket's in why has to weigh up carefully whenever i have to publish a news and story i need to think. that this story heart my security of this story can love me in the deal in many kids that i thought he went to when to hide the real situation the true information so. so they also already are also a threat to as a threat alone and just only too well the two reuters journalists were sentenced to seven years in prison after investigating the involvement of me and maher security forces in mass killings in rakhine state these are the walls of yangon's notorious insein prison back in the days of military rule that housed many a political prisoner nowadays more and more journalists have to do time here not
only alone enjoy whose case to international attention there are many more just recently three journalists were arrested and brought here because they reported on shady business deals by the yangon regional government and its head of human tame a close confidant of state counselor and nobel peace prize laureate aung san suu chiefs three journalists have been released on bail but the incitement charges so far have not been dropped if convicted they face up to two years in prison. de facto leader on sense to achieve was once the figurehead of the democracy movement in her country a symbol of resistance against the decades long oppression by me and mars' military rulers now she heads a party and a government that alongside that same military patel's press freedom and intimidates critical voices. they are lying runs me in march first investigative magazine he says the laws like the official secrets act the two reuters journalists
were charged under need urgent reform as things stand he says journalist remain under threat. even when we use in our phone we very nervous who are sent which if a mission to my for everyone can sense so if a mission for to me if some official. fall some secret to finish. it will be valid into the say secrecy so very we are very nervous not only me but also my family also they're worried about that the last threatening journalists like they are lying are currently under review a spokesperson for city's party told us but it's not only the interests of the media the civilian leaders are considering they are also careful to avoid confrontation with the country's powerful military that. joins me for most of the two launches journalists are to appeal against prison
sentences this week what other chances. well it is a bit early to speculate on the outcome of a potential second trial but if it should come to that been a lot of it will of course depend on how the judges weigh the evidence and weigh the testimonies of the witnesses in the first trial for example there was one witness a police officer who admitted that the police basically set a trap for these two journalists they gave them documents that allegedly contained secrets state secrets and then directly afterwards these two journalists were arrested for possessing exactly these documents and that's only possible because of a law that dates back to the colonial era and that criminalizes the possession the mere possession of the secret information you don't even have to do anything with it you don't have to publish it or anything like that just possessing it is enough
so you can be charged under that law and there are many other laws like that the defamation laws for example telecommunication laws that are very broad and very vague and that easily lend themselves to silencing and intimidating critics still a lot of observers are saying that these laws have to be changed and amended because as long as that doesn't happen it's hard to see how the situation can improve in myanmar emerita and us in what about. building all of this the full look toward democracy activists is described as mean must de facto leader but some say press freedom has declined since she took office she is really in charge what does she defer to the military. well the military of course in myanmar holds a lot of power and they have a long track record of cracking down hard on on critics on critics and on on dissidents but i think blaming it all on the military even though they play
a big role playing in blaming it all on the military is only one part of the story because the government has its part to play as well if you look at examples for example at that case of those three journalists that we saw in the report as well who were arrested for criticizing the yang on regional government that is led by the end of the by a member of our party and they're the ones pressing these charges now they don't have to do that they could have chosen a different path they could have said ok we'll try mediation through the press council for example they chose not to do that and that quite frankly does not only surprise a lot of people and it has over the last three years but but also it disappoints many in me and maher every day do you have these southeast asia correspondent boston thank you very much. let me now bring you up to some other stories making news around the wild it streamlines in egypt ambush two buses carrying christians
on a pilgrimage killing at least seven on their way to the city of minya that's the whole offers a very coptic long history it to hike is the most serious assault on the coptic christian minority in more than a year. the man known as the father of the of gone taliban has been killed the muslim cleric malata samuel hock was known for teaching some of the top leaders in afghanistan's radical movement unknown attackers killed him reportedly at a madrassa an islamic school he ran in northwestern pakistan. fierce winds and rain this week have killed at least eighteen people in italy including two who died when a free fell on their car the storms have felt thousands of trees all but strip some mountain sides of the tree cover emergency workers are scrambling to clear a partially blocked roads as thousands remain without electricity. russia's vladimir putin hosted talks with cuba's president miguel connell today and the two
called on the united states to reconsider its intention to redraw from a nuclear arms treaty cuba on the subject union record for allies and putin says russia still feels solidarity with communist cuba. putin's prime minister says it is very likely his country will stay out of for united nations pact promoting safe and orderly migration now this comes after similar statements from austria hungary and the united states migration was one of the several thorny issues on the table at a meeting with top german officials including chancellor angela merkel in warsaw still the country's leaders did their best to put on a united front. down the ages poland and germany have been at times friends at times enemies and of late the relationship has been tense but the two leaders were determined to stress how much they have in common. fear business we are aware of
the current difficult history that makes it all the more in part and that we germans and poles are good partners in today's complex and i. think that in fact the economic relationship is very healthy trade between the two neighbors is worth one hundred billion euros with real strains of surface to specially since the conservative nationalist law and justice party or peace for short came to power in poland their reforms of the justice system of alarm the european union warsaw has also refused to commit to taking in more refugees the polish prime minister said he was skeptical about a un plan to improve how governments deal with migrants and refugees. misc. here in poland we're very determined that no doubt in the same way that austria and
the czech republic and the united states are that we do not support this global compact bigger un migration pact. and that of scale go but give us of us i'm as we think that the rules that protect our external borders and enable us to control migration zones should have absolute priority. song. there's also disagreement over the planned nord stream to pipeline which will carry gas from russia through the baltic sea to germany. poland feels its interests have been ignored. but in spite of the differences merkel and jointly laid a wreath at warsaw's team of the unknown soldier a reminder of the need to ensure peaceful relations in the future. and for more let me bring in bottles to decades the head of the police department
welcome back to this difficult time for german and polish relations first again if put this in context for us. well german polish relations has become worse and worse since the national conservative law and justice party piece took power in two thousand and fifteen or so has been particularly critical of america's. liberal policies on immigration and has repeatedly refused to accept refuges from other parts of the u. tensions have also been stopped by judicial reforms in poland there are also strong differences between warsaw and belly referring to the energy politics that's right that times are rough and some observers see and eyes iraq calming in the german polish relations so a lot of difficult issues between the two countries as you mentioned poland's a judicial reforms are still. undermining democracy there's also the issue of
a hard done position towards refugees how is the government of uncle america reacting to these controversial policies by its neighbor. my impression is marco is running at the escalation strategy through and through she is apparently a void being the great criticizing of the kolisch government you could see it again today at the press conference in also both america and polish prime minister more obvious keep tried to show a harmony and the stress the pollens both were agreeing with. energy security is another issue that's causing friction between the two you mention the gas pipeline tell us more about that well this is called north stream two pipeline that has been strongly and repeatedly criticized by the polish government this sea bottom pipeline connects directly iran and germany up to now most of russian
gas is running through ukraine and poland germany and other western european countries poland baltic states and ukraine are afraid russia could use this new pipeline as a kind of political weapon and cut off the got supplies for these countries and others we heard in our report that under the sea of poland was making calls for reparations from butlins for the german occupation during the second world war is that issue still on the table. well why didn't hear anything about it during the press conference but it is a complicated matter polish officials in past months have sat germany zero spolin for invading and occupying their country during the second world war eight hundred fifty billion dollars germany insists poland has no legal baz's for the claim. for their ruling party in poland this is an important issue of domestic
politics and the national council of the voters like it but in my opinion it is a poison for the german polish relations so then lot of things that the two neighbors don't agree on good relations have been prickly for a long time what do poland and germany agree on then bought to wash. they agree on the cape cape talks and on this stage. it's a good thing. right keeping the channels of communication open that is important between the two and it was poland and germany to dick the head of the police department thank you very much for your analysis thank you. time now for some business is and christoph is here sizing up the u.s. economy before next week's midterms kristoff that's right i'm ready to and the
final u.s. jobs report before tuesday's vote once again underlined the current strength of the u.s. economy two hundred fifty thousand new jobs were created in october according to the u.s. department of labor now the unemployment rate is steady at three point seven percent meaning the u.s. labor market is considered to be near full employment g.d.p. growth in the third quarter came in at three and a half percent sleeveless slightly down from the previous quarter but still strong and on financial markets president trump has happily taken credit for a steady rise in stocks particularly throughout the sec third second and third quarter that is however market turbulence in recent weeks almost wiped out this year's gains now will the state of the u.s. economy impact today's mid-term elections and if so how let's bring in our financial correspondent yes korda in new york and w.'s washington correspondent of
a solid although let me start with you now the data shows that the u.s. economy is firing on all cylinders unemployment is down give us an idea of how people in the u.s. view their situation have they been benefiting. well christopher dong trump has fueled the u.s. economy and of course people have been benefiting from that you've just mentioned the numbers two hundred fifty fifty thousand jobs were created in october alone exceeding all expectations really wages also have gone up more than three percent and that's the fastest growth in a decade so a lot of people are finding their way back into the labor market right now that's the good news the bad news is this is a regional phenomena in many rural areas are excluded from this current economic boom and also this is a boom and has been especially when it comes to the tax cuts imposed by by the u.s. administration that are moralists beneficial for people on the top floors of
businesses and certain there's a certain sentiment here in the united states that only rich people benefit from this current economic boom and rather poor people also there are risks involved many economists call this boom a sugar rush so we might see an economic boom right now but the outlook is not so great next year the growth of the economic growth might go down from three point five percent right now to only zero point eight and there are some predictions that even see the u.s. economy running into a recession so it's great news for now but it's not for everyone and once this boom is over it will come at a high price according to many u.s. economists yes over to you on wall street donald trump has been taking credit for rising u.s. stocks now almost all of this year's gains have been wiped out how much of that is linked to the president and his policies. well i mean since election day pretty
much two years ago chips are still up by about forty percent and the economy for now is still red hot but the big question is if the price for this growth has been too high and we just mentioned the tax cuts what the tax cuts also do is that they make chili pump up the debt load in the united states and also when the u.s. economy is running too hard so that could also lead to inflation that could lead the federal reserve to increase interest rates more rapidly and then if we talk about the policies of u.s. president donald trump another threat old so is the trade dispute with china just today the economic advisor larry kudlow was saying in an interview that he is less convinced that there will be a trade deal with china any time soon. all of our back to you the economy fundamentals are very solid why doesn't donald trump focus more of them instead of stoking fear about immigrants as he has been doing recently. well that's
right the economy is not such a big topic in the election campaign and that's surprisingly because the economy is so strong that you might think this would have to be the centerpiece basically of the republican campaign that instead of donald trump is focusing on fear mongering about his key issue migration there was this very controversial ad that was published yesterday showing thousands of migrants crossing in a caravan crossing mexico right now and showing them basically as nothing but a bunch of murderous and rapists and that the donald trump of course delivering his solutions for this problem he wants to deploy thousands of soldiers to the southern border he wants to stop granting citizenship for children off migrants so those are the points he's making right now and this is how he wants to convince his voter of eight days to go out and vote in four days from now in an atmosphere of fear that
we are witnessing here and yet back to you briefly if you can which outcome would investors prefer on tuesday well if history is any guide it doesn't to matter so far since world war two we hit eighteen mid-term elections and each time the stock market went up twelve months past the election the s. and p. five hundred on average was up by an astonishing seventeen percent no matter what the outcome is the only question is that the stock market overall already sold some of those gains prior but as i said if history is any guide each time after the midterm election since world war two the market has been trading to the upside and scored in new york and all over solid in washington thanks to both of you. now british and german banks were among the poorest performers in the latest stress test by europe's top a banking regulators overall europe's banks are showing much better resilience and
capacity to withstand finance or start following the two thousand and eight global financial crisis the regulator said european banking authority tested almost fifty lenders and thirty three came through a similarly the recession and market crash following regulatory reviews the e.c.b. is likely to ask weaker banks to strengthen their finances. and specter i'm reading now and the human caravan trapped between violence at home and furious rhetoric at their destination that's right we return to the us where president dollar trump has ramped up his attacks on a human caravan traveling to the country that trump says he could sign an executive order to detain the migrants and deny them the right to apply for asylum both could be really do legally do dubious moves he also hinted that any migrants who might throw a stone or a rock at would have troops could risk being shot at but the desperate center americans fleeing violence atoll i'm not giving up. these are the four thousand or
so people that make up what is being called the migrant caravan central americans mostly hondurans seeking a better life in the u.s. it's an arduous journey especially for those that come with it. people a fatigued. president from campaigning ahead of the midterm elections says they're a threat he hopes to galvanize republican voters who worry about immigration. but those in this group who have just crossed the border from guatemala into mexico say they're fleeing violence and poverty seeking asylum in the u.s. . forces the problem militaries were looking for us they went to our house looking for us they entered our home two days after we left everything behind we had to run away from the country. and he was just you know we have to face. trump says he's
ready to send fifteen thousand troops to the border and preparations have already started although the group is still weeks away he's labeled this an invasion and wants the military to treat anyone throwing stones he says as if it were gunfire. but the u.n. says that this sort of thing isn't abnormal another group although smaller is about two hundred miles further south. it's a difficult journey earlier this week there were around seven thousand people traveling together it's now what four thousand many of applied for asylum in mexico many more have had to stop on routes those that remain keep walking. you know this is what's happening ahead of me tell me lections in the u.s. politicians are pulling out the stops to win over voters ahead of that next week's critical midterm elections they're a singing of one group of special attention the young most agreed that youth turnout for play a key role in the outcome of next week's election in the past million years have been difficult to motivate but as d.d.
abuse my us radio reports that may be about to change. alexander violence is one thousand years old a first year university student and she's from new jersey a rather blue democratic state her vote is a prime target for both the republicans and the democrats but for young americans like alexandra who are gripped by politics the motivation to vote is low i really don't know if i'm going to vote yeah i want to vote it's just there's nothing pushing me there's no one there my parents tell me to vote but i feel like i don't have anything around me saying oh you should know this is the registration this is everything polls show that young people go for democrats over republicans by a wide margin and largely disapprove of president john will trump that's good news for democrats if they can convince those voters to show up and in the last midterm elections only sixteen percent of eligible voters from ages eighteen to twenty nine voted new york needs and deserves a new vision republicans also know it's to their advantage to convince first time
voters that their party is young and engaged but it won't stop me from working hard america is an exceptional place and it's still a young country bridget the president of george washington university student democrats says her group has been running big get out the vote campaigns on campus since the first day of the semester their goal is to convince young undecided students to vote this huge voting bloc i think the largest voting bloc just the most under-represented in terms of whether or not we shop to the polls so i think that if we end up showing that we'll have a large impact recent polling suggested young voters may defy expectations and show up to vote in significant numbers this year if so that might tip the balance of power in congress. you're watching the news still to come the organization digitalize a sacred texts from timbuktu after five years of painstaking hard work their

mali now and an impressive feat of conservation for five years the organization solid d.c.i. has been working to did its digitalize and preserve ancient islamic tests texts which fell in the hands of extremists in timbuktu with the help of german funding and much painstaking effort they're now ninety percent through with their mission is small this isn't their last trip to timbuktu but these ancient manuscripts are being transported out of the sivana d.c.i. storage facilities the ngo wants to preserve about three hundred thousand priceless documents from the twelfth and thirteenth centuries they were carefully dusted off conserved catalogued and packed in special archive boxes a paramedic prejudice prolongs the life of the manuscripts and protects them from the. due to dust mold or even natural disasters even if a library burned down these manuscripts would still survive.
the precious manuscripts will not only be restored and preserved the ngo also aims to make them permanently accessible restoration work has now been completed and the next step is digits ization around one hundred twenty thousand manuscripts have already been scanned but there are still another one hundred and eighty thousand documents to go. of course we're trying to digitize all manuscripts because we've seen what can happen when the jihadists arrived in timbuktu they started destroying these documents but once we've digitized them they cannot be completely obliterated even if the originals are stolen or destroyed. the head of the aid organization thanks his partners without him this documentation of african history couldn't have been preserved the manuscripts are part of world heritage legacy in two thousand and twelve radical islamic groups threatened to destroy them. i'm very
satisfied with what has been achieved since two thousand and thirteen. this is thanks to our international partners who have helped us along the way. first and foremost the german foreign ministry and the german gadda hankel foundation but also the university of hamburg. the. german partners have covered more than seventy percent of the costs. but we are also grateful to our other partners such as you know. the manuscripts have to stay in to moscow a bit longer before they can return to timbuktu as eighteen libraries must be renovated and equipped with technology then researchers from all over the world will be able to beauty's historical artifacts. not just something that's not uncommon to hear on a plane the pilot asking if there are any doctors i'm bored to have a sick passenger up in the u.s.
one african-american physician is accusing an airline of risk isn't saying cut to dentures were repeatedly questioned when she came to assist someone who'd fallen she lived a shared watch took place on social media and it seems to have struck a chord with many docked is now a social media editor janet read is with me to tell us more welcome jacki let us move firstly as to what exactly happened on the flight right so this incident took place earlier this week on a delta flight and a woman sitting next to dr cody stanford started to convulsion needed medical attention and like a trained medical professional dr stanford came to her and after that some flight attendants came up and asked if she was a doctor i guess that's a fair enough question but what they then asked was to show her medical license not once but twice and then she was asked where the license actually belonged to her and dr stanford said she this line of questioning was racial profiling and she
tweeted about it she said delta my experience last night when a fellow passenger needed help shows that a harvard medical doctor does not shield from racism and she tweeted i look like a doctor and later on black women doctors do exist and dr stanford is an accomplished doctor and she is also an expert on obesity and she was trained at harvard medical school so there are lots of questions is why she was she subjected to this line of questioning when she proved she was a doctor and also why would a doctor carry someone else's medical license that just doesn't seem to do this what is dentist saying about all of this delta has apologized both to dr stanford and publicly but dr stanford is since written on twitter that she isn't completely happy with what delta. said publicly and that's because there was a very similar incident aboard a delta flight two years ago involving another african american fame out doctor and
in response to that incident delta removed the requirement for flight attendants to the proof so if a doctor presents themselves as needing to help the flight attendants don't have to ask them for proof about but this incident still happened nonetheless two years later and so people are asking well is delta training at stuff efficiently and what lessons did it actually learn from and other doctors how other docs reacted to doctors. so basically doctors are coming out on social media just to remind us all basically that just like the communities they serve doctors are diverse medical professionals on instagram and doctors have been posting their photos and experiences of themselves at work on to various hashtags like what a doctor looks like i look like a doctor i look like a surgeon and highlighting i guess some of the bias that might exist in the wider community. is a disease specialist in washington d.c.
she tweeted what century is this that someone would doubt that a woman is a physician based on gender and. caring physicians and this is from pediatric surgeon. in massachusetts he tweeted i am a fifty something white male surgeon over the past twenty five years i've responded to several in-flight emergencies and i've never been. my license it's pretty shameful i guess many people in the medical community rallying together defending one of their own and just giving us all a much needed lesson on diversity i guess absolutely thank you very much for being that story on diversity for us on. german economics minister piddled meyer has taken business leaders to jakarta today for the asia pacific conference of german business it's a key event in the region for business leaders and government representatives to
discuss economic relations between germany and asia and of course the traits that between washington and china is on everyone's minds. modern cosmopolitan an economically growing this is how the indonesian capital is portraying itself at the asia pacific conference almost one thousand top managers and politicians came to jakarta a representative of the indian nation government spoke in german to the crowd. many people know that i'm the only german speaking member of president we don't as cabinet. of this but the friendly words couldn't dispel the misgivings german economy minister peter out of meyer spoke plainly the. protection is. a step back to me we have to be. back to. foreign investors are welcome in indonesia astra one of the largest industrial
companies in the country even introduced a german dual study system still german companies have to make a little bit of effort if they want to do business here they probably have more prevalence is in. china for ends but don't forget indonesia we grew at five percentile is growing at six percent is probably a bit time probably for germany also a little shift some of the investment in an asia. minister out meyer called for more cooperation introducing germany's dual study system to jakarta was the first step. now with the pacific region playing a greater role in the global economy. which spoke to casa norman head of s a p laughs the asia pacific region has strongly gained in economic importance over the last year do you think it can continue to be an engine of economic growth. i
believe asia pacific bill indeed continue to be a growth engine for the whole world and why. it has a very good demographic situation here with us. huge young people a huge amount of young people joining the workforce then we also see if the stability and diversity of economic and political systems in the region which also enable companies to operate in the region very valid and certainly also we have a lot of innovation power coming in the last ten years specifically from here which we also see to rather extend going forward how does this affect your business particularly when i want business is growing in asia pacific beyond or more than in the rest of the world so that means the region becomes more important for s.h.p. overall secondly we also use this region specifically for r. and d. that means lots of our global r. and d.
labs has been also put to asia pacific like india and china also do software development in korea in vietnam or singapore so this kind of partnerships off innovation between asia pacific and germany. they become more and more important on the one hand side we see start ups from the region also working together with startups or companies like s a p on a global scale so we help startups from the region also to globalize and to scale that business but we also see more and more technology for emerging from the region not only japanese and korea like in the past but also china so we have also going into strategic partnership with chinese companies in the technology field and we believe this is definitely a good way forward sharing knowledge benefiting from each other and then also grow together thank you very much. plus the amount of as if you left speaking to the
w.'s money customer claridge the. farmers have tried it and so have gardeners playing music to your cows all roses can improve milk eels and plant growth now a cheese maker in switzerland wants to improve the quality of his m. and tyler with some selected tunes topping the playlist heavy metal and some fine hip hop. in this traditional nineteenth century cellar where swiss emtala maturing beyond is exploring a very unconventional question could cheese be sensitive to music he hopes to show that the power of music can influence the characteristics and flavor of the cheese . think that bacteria are responsible for the formation of the taste of cheese with the enzymes that influence its maturity i'm convinced that you miltie temperature and nutrients are not the only things that influence taste sounds ultrasounds and music can also have a physical effect. or they would think. since september the cheeses have been
blasted with sonic masterpieces under supervision of the nearby university to test the effect. but in this experiment it's a question of pairing different cheeses with different types of music here we have rock we just took a very famous song from led zeppelin from that. other cheeses armature to techno and one is getting mozart's magic flute but the advanta already has a favorite. i hope that hip hop cheese bill turned out to have the most flavor. it would give us an opportunity to get in touch with the young people and tell them come and see when we treat the cheese well we can even have a delicious hip hop cheese. fight in a van full of hopes his hipper cheese is a sound investment next march experts will taste the cheese and decide if musical
cheese strikes a note. and that trailer we just saw comes from the german magazine der spiegel which today announced a new series of revelations from what it described as their rotten was a footboard shedding light on corruption and criminal activity the latest wave of revelations of part of the footballer leaks project joining me now from their spiegel sports desk in hamburg is christoph venter but one of the reporters who broke the stories welcome to stuff and you reported that bind munich spend months working on plans to create an elite league along with six of the world's top clubs
what more can you tell us about that yes first of all thanks for having me by munich was a very vital part of these negotiations taken two thousand and sixteen together with a couple of the biggest richest and most powerful clubs and european football and they considered breaking away from the champions league and thought of breaking away from the owners it was there it was centered on making more revenues and it's pretty much the most globalized and most capitalistic approach we've seen in european football that could shape the future of the sport now another claim of focus is on johnny infantino the current president and former u.s. president what have you uncovered about his boston discounts dealings. jenny infants you know became president of running on a couple of promises he said fifo would become more moral in the future and he said
there would be no more back room deals our new revelations actually show that gen infantino in my eyes is this principle of secret negotiations and one very striking example of how it works is that he interfered with drafting of the code of ethics he actually interfere and said that he wanted the officials to be investigated much less than they used to be and so you all wanted to be in the hands of the chairwoman of the investigative chambre at fifa who is a very weak in her investigations and who isn't doing much work since jennifer teano appointed her and when he was the secretary general of few if i actually helped measures the city and perry sends him out to a very favorable terms on settlement agreements that were closed with those clips because they were a mess of breach of the financial fair play regulations. meant to set in pharisaism
else a mention in your report what giant clamps are owned by the would be joint family what have you uncovered about their financial fair play dealings. so mentions the city is actually owned by the ruling family of abu dhabi while very century man is in the hands of qatar and they have been pumping billions of euro into the collapse of the past years and this is a very lopsided competition in european football and they are actually rules and you have that tell the club snuffs to invest too much and not to spend too much because they should be a balance of income and spending but mentions the city of pervy central not didn't adhere to those rules and weren't preach systematically through the system and they were actually facing huge sanctions they could actually have been excluded from the champions league according to the groups of you if but then jenny in france you know as the acting secretary general at you if i help them to negotiate

about to face her toughest challenge not only must she take on the atlantic ocean alone she was do it's against her part of. the jew are among over one hundred so those sailors taking part in the four yearly divorce and the couple see living together as being a help rather than an endurance. when you're preparing a race in a single handed race especially and it's not like not many people here really understand what's going on to talk to so i guess we're in a large position in that way where we can exchange quite a lot of our ideas and it's easy to tell that. to get better together. the worst part is leaving their son in the care of grandparents while their boats battle the waves on route from brittany to guadalupe. mail us at the school when i go to see i do so because it's my job and sam too and we feel no guilt.
but we have a seven year old boy and every time we prepare our departure the most important person is him. so you need a more present but then also. the pair are getting used to their new quarters for the next week or so but there is always a reminder of home. from back in the nineteen forties who is generally considered one of the greatest. ever lived the kids is a hundred years old to say and here to tell us more about it is a man. who's got rhythm we all been married for
a lot to school at the robin has been many years on the road with the bad so how important is the drama the dramas the hop the i mean he's obviously keeps the beat keeps rhythm but he also has the groove that's highly important i mean i want to have the experience of having to go on stage with the band i was with without the drummer because he was taken ill just before comes and it was a disaster. experience with a substitute drama members of the band were trying to tell him how to play the stuff and he got a bit fed up and so in a slow number he just bashed it ruin the number he never what was again i have to say you need proof of this by the way all you have to do is watch animal in the month from the muppet show anyway as you said drums have been drums have been around for thousands of years but as you said the drum kit strange enough was only invented one hundred years ago in one thousand nine hundred by the ludwig
corporation in america his mill. even though dramas are generally tucked away at the back of the stage they play a vital role in any band. if you've got a good drama and a band and you garcia you're always walk or i worked so shabby it was with that rock it there if you go and say goodbye i would have your come a white guy there and i would say that and you don't really pay attention to the blazing guitar player. the first complete drum kit went on sale a hundred years ago it allowed event organizers to save money they previously had to hire several musicians to play put the question now is one person who could do everything a few dramas have become major international stars ringo starr from the beatles. or the late john boehner who played led zeppelin.
but even the best drummers need a decent set of drums promised my rank or takes around nine months to make one set the shell is usually made of maple would be. the way the drums are made hasn't changed much in the past one hundred years. the level of precision is changed for the individual parts jus to technological progress we used to work within half a centimeter now it's my crew millimeters but as for the drum generally nothing's really changed. that hasn't changed is the relationship that all drivers develop with their instruments. these days of course computers can generate beats but that's not the real deal one hundred years on the interaction between
human dramas and their kits just can't be. be. wonderful but the advent of this drum machines are real life drama is going to be an endangered species i think they're having a bit of did at the moment because if you look at the charts the charts are dominated by hip hop music and i mean ninety maybe even one hundred percent of hip hop music uses drum machines however drum machines will never groove this is important and there are certain aspects of human created rhythm there are imperfections and scientific research has found that these tiny affections are exactly what we humans need and it makes as makes this. is fun enough so large dramas going to not going anywhere anytime soon and i think also some female dramas but still yeah i mean the now days are a lot more female musicians actually i mean in fantasy rock bands in the sixty's
and seventy's were mainly male i mean the then the with the runaways in the seventy's and and the bangles in the eighty's but they were the exceptions the robot the great dramas we've got time now we have a. story she's a great german drama who goes all over the world nowadays and there are lots of great female musicians i have a soft spot for dramas and for you robin metro thank you very much for being that story for us. more coming up shortly.
