what is clear is that trees do indeed appear to rust at certain times of the day. if outlet is read write up but only very few pages. do you have a science question that you've always wanted answered it we're happy to help out and send it to us as a video text ovoid smell if we answer it on the show will send you a little surprise as a thank you can i just ask. do you find as i did of you dot com slash science or drop us a line at e w underscore site tech on facebook d w dot science. green leaves don't only produce oxygen they also provide us with food to eat and we're not the only ones feeding off the insects chomp on them to. better the plants below that. scientists have bred an ingenious plan to help answer that question.
2:31 pm
how does a plant react when it gets better and by hungry caterpillar. plants have a kind of signaling system researchers have found that when and if it's damaged it can warn distant leaves. how does that work. when the leaf is wounded it releases an amino acid which triggers an intercellular cascade of calcium ions when calcium levels spike a special molecular sensor glows revealing how the plant activates it is fence mechanism interest and leaves. now back to outer space our milky way is just one of countless galaxies. the chance of there being life and at least one of them is pretty good. huh. only
2:32 pm
know if we know someone in the universe this. new technology allows us to listen for radio signals from deep space but we have to keep noise on earth from interfering. the journey from washington d.c. takes four hours we're heading to a place in pocahontas county in west virginia called green bank it's located within the national radio quiet zone cell service and why fire band here when the radio breaks up we know we've arrived in the only inhabited region in the world where radio transmissions are restricted by law. and that's why what looks like a u.f.o. perched in the hills is in fact the green bank telescope the world's largest fully steerable radio telescope it's used to study far flung galaxies and fundamental questions of physics. portable electronic devices are banned and close to the
2:33 pm
telescope even gasoline engines are prohibited because of their spark plugs. nothing is allowed to interfere with the study of the universe. well it has to do with the incredible sensitivity of the telescope that's behind us. a cell phone like you are single cell phone if it were on standby placed on the planet mars it would be the brightest radio object to us in the sky and would could completely overwhelm what the astronomers trying to do. the radio astronomers at the greenbank observatory listen in on the remote whispers of the universe in order to discover answers to profound cosmological questions astonishingly what they're recording now actually took place billions of years ago. so that telescope it is to some extent a time machine we can see why. it happened at that period in the development. and
2:34 pm
as we move forward we take snapshots along time lines to determine how a star. is born how it lives our guys. in the control room the electronics are shielded by copper walls to prevent electromagnetic radiation from causing interference. the steps microwave oven is kept inside an aluminum cabinet. that's hella scopus steered from here it can rotate three hundred sixty degrees and see eighty five percent of the heavens it also keeps an ear out for possible signs of extraterrestrial life we don't know necessarily if we're talking about a carbon based life form like we're used to could be a silicon based life form that still has some means of communication all we can do is use the technology that we have on hand. and try to guess
2:35 pm
what their communication would look like so that we could intercept it and decode it. join up awesome on belongs to the radio frequency interference police in green banks this is he patrols the area on the lookout for ban cell phones microwave ovens and wireless devices so this is actually some audio coming from the main problems used to be radios and t.v. remote controls but nowadays jonah has a lot more to contend with. the technology advances have better job security. in a lot of ways i mean this is a technology that is exploding wireless technology. yeah i think it's a very busy. anyone who. as the quiet zone rules faces
2:36 pm
a fifty dollar fine. despite their proximity to the ultra high tech observatory one hundred fifty residents of green bank lead lives that seem stuck in a time warp. the connectivity ban even extends to the local high school. the students agree that has its disadvantages but it definitely has plus points to say that i think our social skills maybe have risen because of it i feel like i'm more comfortable just sitting down having a conversation rather than texting to be more connected to the people around me and to to be more involved in the community and not constantly through device. they are building teams they are building these connections with other individuals that i think strengthens their ability to relate to others. for some people green bank is a veritable refuge a place where they can enjoy
2:37 pm
a digital detox time and shoes says that back home in iowa electromagnetic fields were making her sick she had permanent headaches and rashes her husband built her a farraday cage an enclosure to block electromagnetic fields but still she fled here to escape the waves but being without exposure is has healed me or has me better so i can be function and more as a normal person and i can do some things instead of living in the ferrety cage and also helps other so-called electra sensitives she has a little cabin on her property and that's where carmen sharers living for now she moved here from virginia beach where she says she also suffers from electromagnetic hyper sensitivity and used to wear a warning sign around her neck when ever she went out. no way in that people don't carry cell phones and i can approach them and i believe in isolation when i'm
2:38 pm
leaving in virginia beach and i am not sick over here i am a healthy person and i am full of life. so it all goes to prove you can be happy without a smartphone or internet. and the people of greenbank also find it pretty cool to be living in a place that some touch with the cosmos. greenbank observatory has picked up mysterious radio pulses from a source that's been denoted f. or b twelve eleven o two. it's about three billion light years from the astronomers use artificial intelligence to signal which they hope are coming from an alien civilization. talking about messages from space picked up by the greenback of symmetry check this out. looks like

a skull doesn't it. it's the asteroid twenty fifteen t v one forty five which is just passed by at a distance of around fourteen million kilometers. the asteroid measured six hundred meters across. the ice a one hundred metre wide craters. its next flyby will be in twenty twenty one but not as close so give it away before it's gone. the solar wind that streams plasma from the sun is responsible for polar lights here on. the flashes and this also is generated by plasma. that's most often called the fourth state of matter it makes up much of the material in star. like things storms generate cast. the atmosphere causing it to glow now plasma spawning an application much closer to home.
2:40 pm
the plasma lamp was invented more than one hundred years ago in the one nine hundred eighty s. it was a popular novelty item. today yon venter and. i working on a novel application of plasma or ionized gas as a gentle disinfectant. the physicists produce a plasma and use it to generate active substances in water. the i think outsourced and if the fundamental states of matter are solids and liquids and gases and then when we pour more energy into a gas we create a plasma plasma has special characteristics that we can exploit like. we can use it to split the air particles and put them back together again and in such a way that we can get these particles into the liquid for bucky the liquid then becomes anti-bacterial but only for two minutes so the possum and water have to be
2:41 pm
brought together right before us it's a strong disinfectant that can even kill spore forming bacteria that no other approved hand disinfected can touch these bacterial spores can be extremely dangerous they kill many people every year. are active substances the first want to act against certain spores in particular against close study and spores and not only is it highly effective the product we end up with is water based. so it doesn't draw your hands out in the same way that alcohol based products do it's also very environmentally friendly pointlessness. in fact after the two minutes are up the water is so clean you could drink it. the two physicists have tested their product at the university of austin and proved how effective it is they've applied for. patent so now they want to set up a company and launch their product onto the market. they already know what they
2:42 pm
want to dispenser for the disinfectant to look like. they want to create it themselves using the plasma institute's three d. printer. it needs to be practical and versatile and that's you our first target clients will be hospitals nursing homes and doctor's offices these places use more than twenty million liters of disinfectant a year we want to start with this market so we hope that we'll be able to help a lot of patients and before the cycle. the researchers say it will likely be another five years before their plasma disinfection device is ready but it's already won them and innovation award. the boy. that soulful now next time will be lifting off with still. some of them a place of fly as. scientists have found that stalks flying skills determine how

overnight and into monday morning let's go right to journalist michael while he's standing by for us in santa rosa in northern california hi mike while fires are pretty common in california so what has made this wildfire so deadly. obviously as you mentioned wildfires we have a lot of experience with them over the past few years but there's a lot of things at play in paradise that are that different the community it is. it's a it's fairly remote it's a vacation community a quarter of the population is seniors in a situation where people need to get out quickly it's tough for people to move quickly so i think as you see these numbers rise a lot of the people that you see are going to be seniors that get caught up in this . it's been common in a lot of the different fires we've seen and. those are the populations that are
3:51 pm
most affected in these fires my power firefighters coping with. it we're seeing a lot of fire fatigue it's been as you mentioned the the new normal here in the state. is really throwing everything they can at it whether it's a bulldozer lines or building fire lines throwing air attacks at it one of the interesting things when you see these fires even using california prison inmates to help fight the fires out over two thousand of them i think are helping just clear brush and move anything that might make these fires grow more. if they're being paid less than two dollars a day so it won't really help any where they can get it what else are authorities doing to deal with the situation. really just throwing anything they can at it it's going to be the air attack that a lot of different agencies are helping from different states. you see as these
3:52 pm
fires go on you start seeing emergency crews coming from farther and farther away and you're seeing that with these fires with the new crews arriving hoping that the weather wealth along the way and mike is there really any relief in sight in terms of the weather. that's what crews are looking out right now in this week's going to be really important that we're seeing red flag conditions across the state over the next couple days seeing high winds temperatures rising really the conditions that are not favorable to firefighters so the earliest. chance of rain and more easter receding it's not until next weekend so the developments over this next week are going to be really important firefighters helping. families flames a little bit all right journalist michael wald for us the center rose in northern california thank you very much for that update my pleasure. let's catch up now on some other stories making headlines around the world in yemen fresh

3:54 pm
being given the right to vote along with the more famous suffragettes in britain the german women campaigned for years to be allowed to vote yes the efforts of activists like a clear as that can and helen along have largely been forgotten their names are no longer remembered today germany is led by a woman and sometimes that means one hundred years on women here enjoy equality but as it is going to kettle's reports the reality is different. here in germany we have i'm going to america gender equality is happening in our country's politics right that sounds people how they see things and compare that to reality. can you guess how many made us out of ten in germany a man and female and if you could maybe. put your and so on to the board. four out of ten a female and six out of ten a mile. twenty eight all manner line to all female you're actually wrong actually
3:55 pm
it's nine men and one woman only there's a lot of even. in the bonus act there are four hundred and one thousand men and only two hundred and nineteen women that's sixty nine point one percent to thirteen point nine percent less than a thought of parliamentarians at women that's the smallest proportion of women the bonus track has seen in twenty years because there are more male parliamentarians they have a higher percentage of speeches and courts and even america's cabinet men make up the majority photos like this made headlines recently these are their coalition negotiations out their reach new elections and bev area and he is the leadership team in the interior ministry find the female. so why are there so few women in politics this is a question gender politics experts vital for has been researching. the
3:56 pm
topic of compatibility plays a major role balancing the burdens of family public service and politics self-confidence is also an issue it's not always easy getting ahead in this male dominated world at the local level only one in four politicians is female when i teach in a city council and the berlin district of the only woman in an office with four men . i have already experienced in different places i personally and also with others that all women are looked at more critically especially political candidates people always ask questions like can she manage that party the s.p.d. already has a few teacher ones that for all parties he's got a look around at the situation in german politics time after consider. in current developments i have come to the conclusion that we will only be able to achieve gender balance if we institute binding regulations in germany women have been allowed to vote for one hundred years but gender equality in politics doesn't end
3:57 pm
there as long as those in government continue to be mostly men john used to fall for the mark when it comes to gender equality all right for more on the story let's bring in our political correspondent. so there are too few women in the german parliament in the bundestag as we just saw there some parties in germany have special quotas to introduce more women into the party other parties have rejected that strategy after quote has been effective in establishing more balance well certainly quotas in the parties where there have been introduced have led to the fact that half of the representatives of those parties are in fact women about the what voting rights for women has always been in some sense a project of left wing parties rather than conservative parties so it's the left parties that have these quotas at the moment and fulfill those quotas for parties on the right who are in fact at the moment on the rise with the rise of the populist alternative for germany party have much fewer women in their ranks on the
3:58 pm
other hand it's ironic that especially the party such as the conservative party led by i'm going to america is in fact led by a woman that the prime minister of this country is a woman at the moment so it's a very mixed picture in the end quotas are being introduced also invoke on so to see is at the moment i'm going to america herself has our story has proposed that there should be quotas for instance in top leadership of companies in germany so i think quotas are something that we will see more of in times to come are and we mentioned that chancellor merkel is attending a ceremony today marking one hundred years of the vote for women in germany just briefly what is expected there how significant is this ceremony. well i think it's very significant i'm going to michael as a woman as a woman prime minister one hundred years after the voting rights for women was introduced actually marx's occasion with a major speech she's also published a video in which she promotes the rights of women so it's very significant that she
3:59 pm

4:04 pm
mr i said that this comes the disappointment because as you said there was talk of easing the gaza blockade and also a cease fire where do you think this raid leaves those talks will they be abandoned i hope not because there. really are. so i think the silver figures are called into the twenty twentieth's and. much as possible to do our best to avoid any. with any dishes to ease the blockade and to give to be. transformed into a future but if this is continuing to work there goes on i think. we can expect an employee from goes against this aggression ok past the name of the hamas international relations arrow thank you very much for joining us sir.

4:08 pm
a roller coaster week as the standoff between rome and brussels over its plan for twenty nine hundred comes to a head the european commission rejected the plan last month warning the government in rome to drastically reduce its budget deficit targets italy already has the second highest dates in the euro zone in relation to g.d.p. the commission gave rome until tuesday that's tomorrow to present a new budget or face disciplinary steps telling government insists any concession would betray italian voters and amount to political suicide. by two guy military for market strategist and head of macroeconomics and zurich insurance and i asked him well the short term impact would be if italy sticks to its guns and goes ahead with its budget plan they've got the ability to implement an excessive deficit procedure which we do increase the scrutiny of the italian spending but also has the potential to impose fines upon italy up into. point five percent of
4:09 pm
g.d.p. so that's a threat that's clearly at their disposal but realistically that's very hard to implement and we have no we are president of these of these fines being imposed to other and other countries as a problem they face especially i mean will fines actually be in the euro zone's interest given that italy has this huge amount of debt already and if the euro zone's third largest economy if worse came to worse and italy was the default how bad would the people the eurozone could tumble. you know as you say i think the fines is the least of the issues that i think there are unlikely to be to be implemented the real problem is how sustainable is tell you that and also from the budget perspective where is growth really going to be i mean my suspicion is that growth turns out to be a lot lower than the italian government suspect for two thousand and nineteen probably their zero point seven percent rather than the one point five percent or we speak about but the real concern that you hit the nail on the head is absolutely
4:10 pm
were italy to default this is a problem not just for italy but for the rest of the eurozone and potentially the world because it could of course. further growth slowdown that could potentially manifest itself into another global recession so a real problem not just for italy but for the euro zone and the rest of the world not just briefly if you would because government sources in rome say that it is economy minister might reduce the country's g.d.p. estimate for next year in order to convince brussels that italy can actually afford to take out what that is that a workable plan. well of course as you lower the g.d.p. part that means the the spending part of that as a percentage of that becomes becomes even greater so i think what's important is they find a way to acknowledge that girls will be lower it has to be realistic i think it has to be lower than they currently forecast but they also need to find a way of either reducing or pushing out their spending plans and i think that's potentially the most likely if you think about the two major initiatives universal
4:11 pm

4:30 pm
ologists ronnie michael cooney and robin cook have set up fifty beehives the colonies are positioned right next to the kruger national park for more than a year now the two conservationists have been testing whether honeybees can protect selected trees inside the park. believe it or not these bees can ward off the park's largest residence elephants just like people elephants don't like getting stung. they also have an acute sense of smell and hearing so one hint of a beehive and they're off and the reason we're doing that is that and protected areas here in south africa we've got a build up of elephant densities and concern over the impact that they may be having on a large tree species and so we're trying to find ways that we can mitigate the effects that infants have on trees and they have by placing honeybees in these trees we hoping that we can find a new method to actually protect the trees from elephant impact. while elsewhere in
4:31 pm
africa the elephant population is in decline in south africa their numbers are growing here nature reserves are fenced in and equipped with manmade watering holes . protected and well provided for the elephant population has flourished so much so that they've become a problem for the elephants strip trees and shrubs naked often uprooting them in the process cooks the project is a new approach in park management in the past a large number of elephants were simply cold nearly seventeen thousand or shot dead in kruger national park to keep the population stable and protect the vegetation. so when it comes to managing the effects that elephants have on launched cheese there's been a mindset shift from can try to get a fair number themselves as previously thought to to mitigating the effects that they actually have on the trees with the beehives this is just sort of hoping to
4:32 pm
control the elephants movements by keeping them moving if the animal stay in one place too long they can inflict extensive damage but above all the conservationists say bees are the perfect way of keeping elephants away from individual objects of particular importance like trees that have birds nesting in them. in the villages around the park people have little experience with bees many are afraid of them and attitude. is working to change he plans to start keeping bees in his village and to train some of the local residents as beekeepers. studying to be applied to these community we have. made. out of piece by. piece. producing honey about they can. back inside the park the conservationists have found another way of reducing
4:33 pm
elephant numbers and problem areas they've laid dry a number of watering holes that means the elephants have to keep moving to find fresh water relieving the pressure on the local eco system. but smaller parks don't have that option so there is growing interest in the results of cook's experiments with beads he believes it's a groundbreaking method with huge potential. but we would love to see it apply to new species particular. species which elephants are off to such as the bad species and then to see if it can be applied to other projects such as the vaults and this project to see if we can protect trees with faults in this in them using african honey bees and whether that relationship will not where. they should soon find out the first time or already in place. if it all works out that ves could in the future not only protect trees but also the birds and animals that depend on the

4:37 pm
evidence that they are willing to pay a little bit more for a sustainable product if. many seem eager to make this work eco friendly tourism appears to be growing more popular now all we need to do is learn how to forego little luxuries once in a while for the sake of the environment. some dainties a go getter when it comes to protecting the environment the young man comes to. one of the poorest neighborhoods in nairobi he started his conservation initiative six years ago with only two dollars and has worked up to now with over ten thousand people across kenya among these ten thousand many formal criminal gang members he calls this team cone green they are cleaning section asked the sex not behave any polluted nairobi riba slowly a beautiful green park is emerging for the residents fantastic right.
4:38 pm
a large strip of green a bit of paradise on the river banks of the heavily polluted nairobi river what was once a dump site is now a small park the projects to transform this area was initiated by former gang members some of whom have served time in prison now their efforts have drawn some extra support some didn't. environmental activist with a lot of experience is here to help organize a river cleanup on a much larger scale physically bonded but for the betterment of environmental aspect to. understand what that are but it is this is the east how to do the story where others are the human. how our as a community how they're supposed to walk to get out how they supposed what kind of what are they supposed to put together you know the story. i am. i am didn't dispassionate about environmental protection he often visit schools to
4:39 pm
talk about nature conservation why should we keep environment clean we shouldn't people who are going to claim to prevent. dainty has helped these children to plant a garden in the school yard i love caring for entitlement i love even when they come in the morning i what i might see there and. ok with me when i what i'm like i feel when. the green activist has worked with over ten thousand school kids around kenya to bridge the time when he can't be there to teach them created an eco magazine published quarterly it's available free of charge. and so for those other four days of the week or five days of the week just to be alone so they requested me for a month to know that they could be used the could use forty days for reading and for just a little interest but much of that knowledge in environment but in order to reach
4:40 pm
an even wider audience some employees and not the powerful media and music can make the cut at least the yellow that certainly the. people write songs and produces studio recordings with young artists mimic one independent goodbye meeting i decided to sing about trees because they are part of our involvement important to our lives that we need them like we need air like we need more time so i looked at it and discovered the tarzan message and it was unique he says medical quite unique the king but the songs have been performed at a variety of environmental events one of them one of the african rhino consideration award in twenty thirteen for the motion of one of the biggest group through three means the ski and us on one winning an award is what africa was a vision of and it made africa realize that we saved this form of the folksongs
4:41 pm
that was to do it in a song you can use a produce environment of theme songs that can be accepted by the society. back to the green project by the nairobi river some dainty has come up to help supervise and now the riverside clean up. the park is already the cleanest greenest part of korogocho a slum area in the kenyan capital but some didn't his vision is much more ambitious my motivation is to see is to bring about the end in. the land that kenya was a metaphor country if you come back to a school or an area. which as which is green then a green environment is a is a stress buster that's what i call it. so we are just in kids are today. we had a system good up to date because always we don't our environment is so polluted it is so deforested we have got nothing to be proud of but that can't be said of these

4:50 pm
michael while he's standing by for us in santa rosa in northern california hi mike while fires are pretty common in california so what has made this wildfire so deadly. obviously as you mentioned wildfires we have a lot of experience with them over the past few years but there's a lot of things at play in paradise that are that it's different the community. it's a it's fairly remote it's a vacation community a quarter of the population is seniors in a situation where people need to get out quickly it's tough for people to move quickly so i think as you see these numbers rise a lot of the people that you see are going to be seniors that get caught up in this . it's been common in a lot of the different fires we've seen and. those are the populations that are most affected in these fires mike how are firefighters coping with.
4:51 pm
it we're seeing a lot of fire fatigue it's been as you mentioned the the new normal here in the state. really throwing everything they can at it whether it's bulldozer lines or building fire lines throwing air attacks at it one of the interesting things we've seen these fires even using california prison inmates to help fight the fires out over two thousand of them i think are helping just clear brush and move anything that might make these fires grow more. if they're being paid less than two dollars a day so it won't really help any where they can get it what altho are authorities doing to deal with the situation. really just throwing anything they can at it and then in the air attack there are a lot of different agencies are helping from different states. you see as these fires go on you start seeing emergency crews coming from farther and farther away
4:52 pm
and you're seeing now these fires with the new crews arriving hoping that the weather wealth along the way and mike is there really any relief in sight in terms of the weather. that's what crews are looking at right now in this week's going to be really important that we're seeing red flag conditions across the state over the next couple days seeing high winds temperatures rising really the conditions that are not favorable to firefighters so the earliest. chance of rain and more east you're receiving it's not until next weekend so the developments over this next week are going to be really important in firefighters helping. belief in these flames a little bit all right journalist michael wald for us in santa rosa northern california thank you very much for that update my pleasure now seven palestinians and an israeli soldier are reported dead after an israeli special forces operation in the southern gaza strip the dead include
4:53 pm
a commander of the military wing of hamas the islamist movement that runs gaza israel says a second soldier was wounded in the fighting the clashes prompted israeli airstrikes and returned rocket fire from gaza toward israel the incident cast renewed doubt on peace efforts between israel and hamas. our correspondent tanya kramer is in gaza city she joins us on the line for more on the story so tanya it's not that often that you see israeli security forces launch a raid on the ground in gaza what more can you tell us about what happened last night. you know that's very damning of apostles of information that's coming from old side to understand that an israeli special forces commandos had entered the southern gaza strip as a car late on sunday evening which quilting to the israeli army special operations and missions but given that nature we don't know exactly what they were dealing with was their nation according to their muskets being uncovered which resulted in
4:54 pm
an exchange of fire was meant to come up and tell you we need to come again. patient along the border area was open he did call the time not the f.-type and a few dozen posting in. very close to the pillars of the country can look at that fire according to the very army in two thousand and then all of this comes at a time when toolkits am going on understanding between israel and hamas made by egypt and the un to ease the tensions do you think possibly to a longer term calm but this incident of course makes a call to see much wanted to achieve can you we mentioned a commander from hamas' military wing was also killed in this operation what do we know about him how significant a figure with. the quitting because the military in the press conference earlier he was with the county in command not have publicly known him. and from what we understand again from the school you can also statements by the. parent claiming
4:55 pm
that this was nothing of the nation camp a particular leave but it was a scene. in the boston college and commission mission and. that can you mention that this comes at a time where there were talks ongoing agreements that allowed cash an oil into gaza that was badly needed there what impact do you think this fresh violence will have on those arrangements. while this is a relief those received early to say what i can cause the people in gaza to help from the sounds of is very very worried that this might be in some ways still escalate although i have said the situation has been relatively quiet over the cost hamas in gaza says they're in highest and that's the situation. at the moment being that foreign journalists are currently in office allowed to use the gaza strip this is one of the measures i think that this because the combo's and so it's rather quickly off that this incident mike is an indication that both sides are not
4:56 pm
interested in an escalation but in gaza it is a very tense quiet and people are aware that the situation contains and. tanya kramer joining us from gaza to new tanya thank you for that update now some other stories making headlines around the world officials say several people are dead after a suicide bomber struck a police checkpoint in the afghan capital kabul the explosion hit close to where hundreds had gathered to protest the government's failure to prevent the attacks by the taliban no group as yet claimed responsibility for the bombing politicians in sri lanka have staged a candlelit vigil to protest the president's decision to dissolve parliament they say democracy is under threat after the president sacked the legislature in order fresh elections last week to lanka's main political parties are challenging the move in the supreme court. now it's been one hundred years since women here in

germany were given the right to vote now chancellor angela merkel speaking right now these are live pictures from an adventure in berlin to mark the occasion mcaleer south is germany's first female leader but the country's political scene is still very much dominated by men. have been going to kettle's reports on the country's mixed record since women first took to the ballot box. here in germany we have i'm going to america so gender inequality is happening in our country's politics right that ask people how they see things and compound has to reality. can you guess how many may s out of ten in germany a man and female and if you could maybe. put your and so on to the board. four out of ten a female and six out of ten a mile. twenty eight all manner line to all female you're actually wrong actually it's nine men and one woman own there's
4:58 pm
a lot of even. in the bonus act there are four hundred and one thousand men and only two hundred and nineteen women that's sixty nine point one percent two point nine percent less than the thought of all parliamentarians women that's the smallest proportion of women the bonus track has seen in twenty years because there are more male parliamentarians they have a higher percentage of speeches and courts and even an actor it's cabinet men make up the majority photos like this made headlines recently these are their coalition negotiations after reaching and actions and bev area and he is the leadership team in the interior ministry find the female. so why are there so few women in politics this is a question gender politics experts assume vital for has been researching. the topic of compatibility plays a major role balancing the burdens of family public service and politics
4:59 pm
self-confidence is also an issue it's not always easy getting ahead in this male dominated world at the local level only one in four politicians is female when i teach in a city council and the berlin district of the only woman in an office with four men . as i've already experienced in different places personally and also with others that women are looked at more critically especially political candidates people always ask questions like can she manage that party the s.p.d. already has a few teacher ones that for all parties he's been all over the ground at the situation in german politics high enough to consider. in current developments i have come to the conclusion that we will only be able to achieve gender balance if we institute binding regulation ice in germany women have been allowed to vote for one hundred years but gender equality in politics doesn't end that as long as those in government continue to be mostly men john mystified the mark when it comes to

a day. it's crunch time for the eurozone the single currency comes under pressure as rome refuses to revise its costly budget plan for twenty nine thousand experts warn it's a little bolt on instead the euro could collapse. also on the show they take their laptops to beaches and mountains digital no months on to restrict it to an office or a country we will tell you why many turn their backs on jenny. welcome to the business i want to get jones in berlin good to have you. with us well investors braced for a roller coaster week as the standoff between rome and brussels over italy's fiscal plan for twenty nine thousand comes to a head the european commission rejected the plan last month's warning the government in rome to drastically reduce its budget deficit target italy already
5:04 pm
has the second highest debt in the euro zone in relation to g.d.p. the commission who gave rome until tuesday that's tomorrow to present a new budget or face disciplinary steps the italian government insists any concession would betray italian voters and amount to political suicide. spoke to guy millet chief market strategist and head of macro economics and zurich insurance and i asked him what the short term impact would be if it in the sticks to its guns and goes ahead with its budget plan they've got the ability to implement an excessive deficit procedure which we do increase the scrutiny of the italian spending but also has a potential to impose fines upon italy often to about zero point five percent of g.d.p. so that's a threat that's clearly at their disposal but realistically that's very hard to implement and we have no we are printed and of these of these funds being imposed
5:05 pm
to other in other countries as a problem they face especially i mean will fines actually be in the euro zone's interest given that italy has this huge amount of debt already and if the euro zone's third largest economy if worse came to worse and italy was to default how bad would that be for the eurozone could it tumble. no as you say i think the fines is the least of the issues that i think there are unlikely to be to be implemented the real problem is how sustainable is tell you that and also from the budget perspective where is growth really going to be i mean my suspicion is that growth turns out to be a lot lower than the italian government suspect for two thousand and nineteen probably their zero point seven percent rather than the one point five percent of the speak about but the real concern that you hit the nail on the head is absolutely where it lead to the fold this is a problem not just for italy but for the rest of the euro zone and potentially the world because it could of course. further growth slowdown that could potentially
5:06 pm
manifest itself into another global recession so a real problem not just for italy but for the eurozone and the rest of the world not just briefly if you would because government sources in rome say that it is economy minister might reduce the country's g.d.p. estimate for next year in order to convince brussels that italy can actually afford to take. a workable plan. well of course as you lower the g.d.p. part that means the spending part of it as a percentage of that becomes becomes even greater so i think what's important is they find a way to acknowledge that girls will be lower it has to be realistic i think it has to be lower than they currently forecast but they also need to find a way of either reducing or pushing out their spending plans and i think that's potentially the most likely if you think about the two major initiatives universal income and the reduction of the retirement age the likelihood of that being implemented on the first of january is becoming increasingly unlikely so the longer that takes to work through the pipeline the longer it takes to be implemented the better chance of their deficit optically it looks better all right there chief
5:07 pm
market strategist and head of macroeconomics that's rick insurance thank you so much. well meanwhile italian banks aren't convinced that roams deficit spending will end well a report says the country's five biggest lenders are considering opening a two and three quarter billion euro credit line with the central bank's deposit protection fund the credit line with if to strengthen support for weaker lenders in the event of a banking crisis it is banks hold around three hundred seventy billion euros of government securities whose value depreciates when interest rates go up. budget plan has triggered fresh peculation of the soundness of italian banks and for more let's rope in danielle corp in frankfurt danielle how worried should we be about italian banks how big an impact could they have on the european banking landscape. well monica we can be sure that italian banks are going through an extremely different period at the moment they are pretty much every single day the
5:08 pm
big losers at the stock exchange the market in italy is extremely nervous nobody really knows watch or expect just to put this into perspective since june this year's shares of the biggest italian lenders lost an amount of thirty seven billion euros and it seems that this trend is most likely going to continue also the latest stress test of the e.c.b. came through the result that italian banks are not fit for a real crisis situation the critter she is a big issue this could become even a bigger issue once the two other to forty billion euros of long term loans by the e.c.b. would eventually come to an end yes just imagine the situation that an italian band would run out of money or maybe shutting down this certainly would have a big impact on other lenders around europe as well all right daniel cope in frankfurt thank you so much. well germany may be the europe's strongest economy with low unemployment and stable growth but when it comes to digitalisation

5:49 pm
fifteen to twenty years and unfortunately the best science is telling us that drawing this war drought all those things. they're going to intensify. meanwhile to fire fronts in southern california are worsening after a weekend lull in the winds which had fanned the flames there picking up speed again. we're starting to see another series of santa ana winds that are going to start blowing here working their way south towards san diego and this house is very concerned we have over eight thousand federal state and local firefighters on the front line with thousands on the ready prepared for the next a down. the california fire department has warned of explosive fire behavior with gusty winds overnight and into monday morning. let's go right to journalist michael
5:50 pm
while he's standing by for us in santa rosa in northern california hi mike while fires are pretty common in california so what has made this wildfire so deadly. obviously as you mentioned wildfires we have a lot of experience with them over the past few years but there's a lot of things at play in paradise that are that it's different the community. it's a it's fairly remote it's a vacation community a quarter of the population is seniors in a situation where people need to get out quickly it's tough for people to move quickly so i think as you see these numbers rise a lot of the people that you see are going to be seniors that get caught up in this . it's been common in a lot of the different fires we've seen and. those are the populations that are most affected in these fires mike how are firefighters coping with. it we're seeing
5:51 pm
a lot of fire fatigue it's been as you mentioned the the new normal here in the state. really throwing everything they can at it whether it's bulldozer lines or building fire lines throwing air attacks at it one of the interesting things we've seen these fires even using california prison inmates to help fight the fires out over two thousand of them i think are helping just clear brush and move anything that might make these fires grow more. if they're being paid less than two dollars a day so it won't really help any where they can get it what else are authorities doing to deal with the situation. really just throwing anything they can at it and then in the air attack there are a lot of different agencies are helping from different states. you see as these fires go on you start seeing emergency crews come in from farther and farther away and you're seeing that with these fires with the new crews arriving hoping that the
5:52 pm
weather will help along the way and mike is there really any relief in sight in terms of the weather. that's what crews are looking out right now in this week's going to be really important that we're seeing red flag conditions across the state over the next couple days seeing high winds temperatures rising really the conditions that are not favorable to firefighters so the earliest. chance of rain and more east you're receiving it's not until next weekend so the developments over this next week are going to be really important in firefighters helping. belief and these flames a little bit all right journalist michael wald for us in the center rosa northern california thank you very much for that update. not to some other stories making headlines around the world officials say several people are dead after a suicide bomber struck a police checkpoint in the afghan capital kabul the explosion hit close to where

5:54 pm
reported dead after an israeli special forces operation in the southern gaza strip the dead include a commander of the military wing of hamas is the most movement which runs gaza israel says a second soldier was wounded in the fighting the clashes took place amid israeli airstrikes and returned rocket fire from gaza toward israel the incident casts doubt on peace efforts between israel and hamas. our correspondent tanya kramer is in gaza city she joins us on the line for more on the story so tanya it's not that often that you see israeli security forces launch a raid on the ground in gaza what more can you tell us about what happened last night. you know that's very going to be more of a puzzle of information coming from old side to understand that an israeli special forces commandos had entered the southern gaza strip a car laden from the evening misquoting to the israeli army special operations and
5:55 pm
causes and missions but given the nature we don't know exactly what they were doing what was their mission. they must have been uncovered which resides with an exchange of fire was meant to come up and tell you we could come again usually a patient along the border area was open to bid followed by method to try and achieve double posting and. killed subsequent to the rockets fired according to the very on the in two thousand and then all of this comes at a time when told from going on understanding between israel and hamas made by egypt and the e.u. and to eat the tensions heating possibly to a longer term calm but this incident of course makes the call to be much harder to teach kind of we mentioned a commander from hamas' military wing was also killed in this operation what do we know about him how significant a think it was he was the quitting because the military in the press conference
5:56 pm
earlier he was with the car you come on this is not how publicly known in gaza and from what we understand again. you can also statements by the. way aren't claiming that this was nothing of the nation has a particular leader but it was a team. in the botched intelligence commission mission and. that can you mention that this comes at a time where there were talks ongoing agreements that allowed cash an oil into gaza that was badly needed there what impact do you think this fresh violence will have on those arrangements. while this is a really though to theater i need to say what i can tell is that people in gaza to help from the south of there are very worried that this might be in some ways still escalate although i have said situation have been relatively quiet over the cost hours a month in gaza that there are no highs and that's the situation. at the moment meaning that foreign journalists are currently in office i'll give you the gaza
5:57 pm
strip but one of the measures i think that's because of the calmness and so it was that quickly off the internet it might give an indication that so far i'm not interested in an escalation but in gaza it is a very calm quiet and people are aware that the situation contains and. tanya kramer joining us from gaza tanya tanya thank you for that update chancellor angela merkel has led celebrations marking the centenary of women's suffrage in germany speaking in berlin machall pay tribute to the women who one hundred years ago fought for the right to vote. so you will know the end of on following the one at the turn of the century women around the world began fighting for their rights. they filmed at and gave each of the mutual support most ardent we should say that it was hard exhausting but ultimately a successful struggle comes on the twelfth of november today one hundred years ago women in germany were also finally allowed to take part in politics simply take
5:58 pm
home it was a key moment in the history of democracy. well michel herself is germany's first female leader but the political scene is still dominated by men going to kettle's reports on mixed progress since women first took to the ballot box. here in germany we have i'm going to america so gender equality is happening in our country's politics right next to the people how they see things and compare that to reality. can you guess how many made us out of ten in germany a male and female and if you could maybe. put your and so on to the board. four out of ten a female and six out of ten a mile. twenty eight all manner line to all female you're actually wrong actually it's nine men and one woman only there's a lot of even. in the bonus act there are four hundred and one thousand men and
5:59 pm
only two hundred and nineteen women that's sixty nine point one percent or two point nine percent less than a thought of parliamentarians at women that's the smallest proportion of women the bonus talk has seen in twenty years because there are more male parliamentarians they have a higher percentage of speeches and courts and even an actor it's cabinet men make up the majority photos like this made headlines recently these are the coalition negotiations after reach no elections and bev area and he is the leadership team in the interior ministry find the female. so why are there so few women in politics this is a question gender politics experts vital for has been researching. the topic of compatibility plays a major role balancing the burdens of family public service and politics self-confidence is also an issue it's not always easy getting ahead in this male
6:00 pm
dominated world at the local level only one in four politicians is female when i teach in a city council and the berlin district of the only woman in an office with four men . i have already experienced in different places i personally and also with others that all women are looked at more critically especially political candidates people always ask questions like can she manage that party the s.p.d. already has a female teacher once that for all parties he's got all of the ground at the situation then german politics after consider. in current developments i have come to the conclusion that we will only be able to achieve gender balance if we institute binding regulation ice in germany women have been allowed to vote for one hundred years but gender equality in politics doesn't end there as long as those in government continue to be mostly men germany is the fall off the mark when it comes

to gender equality all right for more on the story let's bring in our political correspondent. so there are too few women in the german parliament in the one to start as we just saw there some parties in germany have special quotas to introduce more women into the party other parties have rejected that strategy have quotas been effective in establishing more balance. well certainly quotas and the parties where there have been introduced have led to the fact that half of the representatives of those parties are in fact women but the what voting rights of women has always been in some sense a project of left wing parties rather than conservative parties so it's the left parties that have these quotas at the moment and fulfill those quotas for parties on the right who are in fact at the moment on the rise with the rise of the populist alternative for germany party have much fewer women in their ranks on the other hand it's ironic that especially the party such as the conservative party led
6:02 pm
by anglo-american is in fact led by a woman that the prime minister of this country is a woman at the moment so it's a very mixed picture in the end quotas are being introduced also invoke on so to spears at the moment or herself has are still has proposed that there should be quotas for instance in top leadership of companies in germany i think quotas are something that we will see more of in times to come as we mentioned that chancellor merkel is attending a ceremony today marking one hundred years of the vote for women in germany i just briefly what is expected there how significant is this ceremony. well i think it's very significant i'm going to michael as a woman as a woman prime minister one hundred years after the voting rights for women was introduced actually marx's occasion with a major speech she's also published a video in which she promotes the rights of women it's very significant that she as a woman in fact can one hundred years after this event speak about the rights of
6:03 pm

6:04 pm
continue to the line unopposed to win the race and clinch the constructors' championship to miss a day's a serious that's the double right this is just what it was before the whole you know it well wakes up goes to work every day and tries to bring the best out himself and they really pull together as a unit and the boys so down much want is to have the to try for them and today was like the best out there we could do it because we were struggling. hamilton celebrates his tenth race win of the season while a frustrated for stop a new doing could have been a case of when he found okon at the post race scales the red bull driver made his feelings known. to football now and in the bundesliga let six score to three male victory over leverkusen on sunday the eastern german club has the best defense in the german top flight and they didn't show any assembly leverkusen any mercy either. route from
6:05 pm
nick's red bulls had their foot on the gas from the get go in the twenty seventh minute diego damage teeing up use of polson to open the scoring confusion in the late because in defense impulse and saw his opening and pounced play because and didn't look any better in the second half look at gloucester man making it to kneel in the sixty eighth minute his first goal of the season in his one hundredth competitive game for leipsic keeper lucas read at speed with no chance and shortly before the games polson struck again to cement the win the james six goal of the campaign three nil the final score among just a matter so it's team is doing an outstanding job right now with play really good football we can be satisfied going into the international break in the shitholes i know they're clean sheets for leipzig stingy defense and the win moves them up to third place. all right let's take
6:06 pm
a look at the bundesliga table now dortmund stays on top after beating bahrain on saturday followed by gladbach leipsic and frankfurt birand drop down to fifth and their big no big changes in the bottom half but hanover took are all one this weekend so that puts the pressure on the teams just above the bottom three. monica now the arm wrestle between italy and europe you just mentioned the word pressure well there's a lot of pressure on the eurozone right now sunni investors are braced for a roller coaster week as the standoff between rome and brussels over italy's plan for twenty one thousand comes to a head the european commission rejected the plan last month warning the government in rome to drastically reduce its budget deficit target italy already the second tie is the debt in the euro zone and relation to g.d.p. the commission gave rome until tuesday to present a new budget or face disciplinary steps italian government insisted any concession which betray italian voters and amounted to political suicide.
6:07 pm
well earlier i spoke to god millet chief market strategist and head of macroeconomics zurich and surance and i asked him what the short term impact would be if italy sticks to its guns and goes ahead with its budget plan they've got the ability to implement an excessive deficit procedure which we do increase the scrutiny of the italian spending but also has the potential to impose fines upon italy often to about zero point five percent of g.d.p. so that's a threat that's clearly at their disposal but realistically that's very hard to implement and we have the president of these of these fines being imposed and other in other countries as a problem they face especially i mean will fines actually be in the euro zone interest given that italy has this huge amount of debt already and it's the euro zone's third largest economy if worse came to worse and italy was to default how
6:08 pm
bad would that be for the euro zone couldn't handle. no as you say i think the fines is the least of the issues that i think there are unlikely to be to be implemented the real problem is how sustainable is tell you that and also from the budget perspective where is growth really going to be i mean my suspicion is that growth turns out to be a lot lower than the italian government suspect for two thousand and nineteen probably their zero point seven percent rather than the one point five percent of the speak about but the real concern that you hit the nail on the head is absolutely were italy to the fold this is a problem not just for italy but for the rest of the eurozone and potentially the world because it could of course. further growth slowdown that could potentially manifest itself into another global recession so a real problem not just for italy but for the euro zone and the rest of the world now just briefly if you would because government sources in rome say that it is economy minister might reduce the country's g.d.p.
6:09 pm
estimate for next year in order to convince brussels that italy can actually afford to take out more debt is that a welcome plan. well of course as you lower the g.d.p. part that means the spending part of it as a percentage of that becomes becomes even greater so i think what's important is they find a way to acknowledge that girls will be lower it has to be realistic i think it has to be lower than they currently forecast but they also need to find a way of either reducing or pushing out their spending plans and i think that's potentially the most likely if you think about the two major initiatives universal income and the reduction of the retirement age the likelihood of that being implemented on the first of january is becoming increasingly unlikely so the longer that takes to work through the pipeline the longer it takes to be implemented the better chance of their deficit optically it looks better all right there chief market strategist and head of macroeconomics that's rick insurance thank you so much. well meanwhile the tally and banks aren't convinced that roams
6:10 pm
deficit spending will end well a reporter says the country's five biggest lenders are considering opening a two and three quarter billion euro credit line with the central bank's deposit protection fund a treaded line would have to strengthen support for weaker lenders in the event of a banking crisis italy's banks hold around three hundred seventy billion euros of government securities this value depreciates when interest rates go up. budget plan has triggered fresh peculation of the soundness of italian banks and for more let's rope in danielle corp in frankfurt danielle how worried should we be about italian banks how big an impact could they have on the european banking landscape. well monica we can be sure that italian banks are going through an extremely different period at the moment they are pretty much every single day the big losers at the stock exchange the market in italy is extremely nervous nobody really knows watch or expect just to put this into perspective since june this year's shares of
6:11 pm
the biggest italian lenders lost an amount of thirty seven billion euros and it seems that this trend is most likely going to continue also the latest stressed of the e.c.b. came through the result that italian banks are not fit for a real crisis situation the crittur she is a big issue this could become even a bigger issue once the two hundred forty billion euros of long term loans by the e.c.b. would eventually come to an end yes just imagine the situation that an italian band would run out of money or maybe shutting down this certainly would have a big impact on other lenders around europe as well. in frankfurt thank you so much . all right moves over black friday china's populist single stay has passed the u.s. consumer extravaganza to become the world's biggest today in shopping held annually on november the eleventh hence the name which refers to the four ones in the date the shopping bonanza brought in another record amount this year but there are signs

6:18 pm
interesting thing and striking thing about these protests is that they started in the cultural sector which raises of course the questions how powerful is culture how powerful are women in culture in the wake of me to time magazine made the silence breakers its collective person of the year for two thousand and seventeen saying their actions and least one of the highest velocity shifts in our culture since the one nine hundred sixty s. well we'd like to see just how much that statement can hold up can this movement empower women globally or are we with our western perspective perhaps overestimating its reach. thank you thank you. thank you and here are my guests from all over the world the renowned indian feminist author and publisher. she spent her entire career bringing women's stories and subjects

6:20 pm
ellen harrington is an american curator and film programmer in january she took over as director of the german film institute in frankfurt for over two decades she worked for the academy of motion pictures arts and sciences in los angeles and as such experience the need to debate out very close range a warm welcome to all of you round of applause thank you for joining me thank you coming thank you very much to our studio audience i mean wow ladies and gentlemen rather than fade out need to continue to have an almost daily ripple effect in the news and so before we get started we're going to have a quick recap of the. turbulent times of me two. women in chile are protesting it's become a huge demonstration like never before in this country against sexism and violence she may be the one who got the ball rolling inadvertently harvey weinstein once a powerful movie mogul now indicted on charges of rape he ruled over
6:21 pm
a cartel of silence. that is over no more shame no more silence he led me to his bathroom pleading that i just watch him masturbate time was up a world wide outcry followed a flood of revelations among them the swedish academy in stockholm it announced that the nobel prize in literature will be cancelled this year the venerable institution now a shambles after a sexual assault scandal. across all industries cultural political or big business women are speaking out and men are forced to face up even if some wish it would all disappear sooner than later yeah right. dear we look into the future what will remain of me to end times up in five ten fifteen years. one thing certain hollywood will turn it all into a movie director brian de palma is currently working on
6:22 pm
a script based on the harvey weinstein scandal a real horror film. we are definitely not going to put that one of the top of our to see list on pretty sure but just back from l.a. ellen harrington you spent twenty five years at the academy of motion picture arts and sciences in the middle of weinstein's world so to speak how did you experience the weinstein affair and the ensuing need to debate well what i think is so fascinating is that what the journalists who discovered this story and got the women to go on record with the new york times and the the new yorker magazine did. was the broke through a cartel of silence and an actual system of intimidation that was incredibly pervasive and ironically harvey weinstein's attorney last week stated that his defense was that he didn't invent the casting couch and it's true the entire history of the industry of the movie industry entertainment in general women are
6:23 pm
a product and generally men are the architects of what's being shouted and it's always unfortunately been this way ironically in the silent era there were more women directors and writers than there are now and so when you look at this as the statistics and who's going to tell the story is what i'm really hoping is that the normalization of that kind of institutional sexism and abuse which really you know it from top to bottom people really did know about this and journalists tried to break that story for decades and there was a conspiracy of silence and a lot of intimidation tactics actually to prevent it from being told i'm hoping this flips that script and that the new normal and the new normalization is that women do get a seat at the table and they do get to start being the architects of stories that are told in the culture are we seeing any changes already what's the atmosphere now you were just in l.a. it's very different than six months ago i was definitely say in terms of who the agencies are submitting for director of jobs looking at the actual hard facts that
6:24 pm
you know there's three percent of films that are shot by women in cinematography department nine numbers are astounding is ridiculous nine percent of the top two hundred fifty films made in hollywood last year were directed by women and when you see films like black have there for example that not only address the strong women roles but you know minority and diverse performance as those films actually get a very high amount of profit and a very high viewership compared to their investment and the people in charge in the industry have been ignoring the business facts in order to stay comfortable. so have we i think we've been seeing some change though at some of that for instance can film festival the belly not in berlin we're seeing actually a rise in what's being bought up by the production companies of female driven narratives yes already and absolutely having cate blanchett and that group of women on the jury in cannes all of them being at the staging of
6:25 pm
a protest on the steps of the film festival it is actually changing business practices the inclusion waiver which is something where it's someone has power in the industry are strong cast producer they can actually require that there's a certain amount of diversity in the below the line cast and in the the staffing of the production and it makes a difference when women are in charge they hire more women when a diverse group of people are in charge they hire more diverse people and that's how you get more representation in the industry people need the door open they need a job opportunity ok now you've been six months in germany it's not a long time but i'm sure you have some impressions you've been condensing of a lot of wedding so tell us how how you see things here is is the industry moving here but germany already has a very different funding model and there's a lot more women directors here and when women who are getting there just to get you know in narrative as well as documentary and the cultural political scene here
6:26 pm
is addressing me to quite directly certainly at the opening of the berlin wall a and also at the touch of film prize the awards commentators and also the presenters and the government ministers who spoke very specifically addressed me to and time's up and said it's a big part of their agenda to make sure that this doesn't fade away ok so a relatively seismic shift in the us i suppose we can say made to of course started off as a protest of well to do hollywood stars but very quickly achieved a global dimension and across multiple industries how relevant was it in your country or because i'm thinking women in india are also looking to some other moments in history as perhaps more. seismic well for us actually what you're now calling the me too moment in the west wasn't what you addressed in your introduction or ripple effect to what's happening in the united states or goes much though you know i respect what the united states is doing in many respects but it's not the center of the world from where things ripple out and there are things going
6:27 pm
on in other parts of the world which are born of the local histories so for us actually it was in the early ninety's that the process of giving a name to this really widespread problem began and it began because of the history of a poor village woman who performing her task as a government functionary was raped in the village where she was working by four men and they raped her because they didn't like her trying to stop child marriage and it led to a huge debate inside the women's movement about what comprises the workplace for women is it just the four walls of an office space or is it out in the fields inside or domestic space and so on and so forth and thus began the battle we filed a petition with the government of india to bring in place a law on sexual harassment in the workplace that came in twenty thirteen after which it has become mandatory for all businesses university said occasional
6:28 pm
institutions everybody who has more than ten employees to have committees in place and to deal with the subject and that has coincided with a sort of expansion in which women who are coming out into the public space and facing discrimination and seeing how male bias operates in the public space they are speaking out more and more and demanding change so it's a very live subject it's everywhere of course it is a little course yet there are a lot of a lot of women to address the subject yes and the the momentum is the articulation of it is of course with. electorate and over nice women who can speak out and who have access but it's not to say that for all women in india i'm not complaining of the lack of safety and lack of security in working so it's sick to be a big movement let's see what happens ok and it's very rooted in the culture of the
6:29 pm
home being the women space in the public space belonging to men ok thank you russia for that let's come over to you jumana we're talking about five hundred million women in india. much smaller number in lebanon how relevant was me too in lebanon and has it has it had an impact tangible and well i personally didn't feel of real impact obviously there has been people talking about it but to tell you the truth. even though i know that feeling starts with breaking the silence this is the first most important step in any culture in any problem but. we still lack the courage to address this issue in a very open open way i mean i know that a sexual harassment is widespread that sexual intimidation is widespread as well at work because you know have rassmann is a very broad word what does it mean does it mean my boss trying to intimidate me
6:30 pm
into doing something just because i'm afraid to lose my job which happens a lot many times and in my country and in other countries or does it only need you know touching someone or you know it's about power it's a power play the fact that you say it makes it easier for others to say it as well but unfortunately it always takes a famous person to say it in order to a lot of well there's another element of shame like a waitress being harassed by a bar owner and in a small american town. we wouldn't have heard about it maybe as much as we did because of who harvey weinstein is and who the actresses are yes exactly we're ok as yellowing to come over to you because of the reaction in france initially in france or rather uncomfortable backlash and some sort of yes it was candor of
6:31 pm
description see between the reaction that you could see on social media among the younger generation of feminists and a generation of the most famous french actresses yes there was so there was there was a journalist name and some home you know who started the ball which was the local translation isolation of the media movement but there was also a column that was written by several actresses including get in there and many of you know any other way i mean you're getting me. some all or leading or french women who were saying that they're who were rather supportive to men and saying that there were defending the freedom of bothering of annoying women in the public spaces so i was quite difficult because they have a white echo our friend so it was difficult for us french feminist to say that we you know there was not and i mean and then it was voice against the me too in
6:32 pm
france but i have to say that before to me to have making friends at the have been kind of first wave of reaction related to something that happened to a woman it was in two thousand and eleven when the diminished was can yes i was running for. father french presidency was you know involved in a rape in new york that was something that really had white echo in france that made us understand that many that there was a much sort of verity between some men that for standing with them in it once again but to me it was the start of you know a new generation of women used to raise and to be to go public and the me too movement. finally make people make people able to say and to prevent harm and put on q four for example hosting a very prestigious ceremony in cinema exactly now you mentioned obviously famous people need to speak up in france of course we also just saw the process the protest a very high profile women in film and black actresses also took advantage of the
6:33 pm
cannes film festival to stage a protest which was also widely reported. do you think need to as we see it become more and more inclusive can be leveraged for more change in terms of women of color women and women of color being taken seriously in terms of and as artists as creative agents is it helpful actually that to me to movement is attached to senate refused major work yes it means that there are some women who do work on the ground at the grassroots level and who are not by you know the media and we really need to choose to say and to tell that it's thanks to them that we're here today and the mitsu movement can really inspired very diverse type of women's shoes kind of. tackle their very specific position i was being you know women whether they care whether they're women of color or you know do you have
6:34 pm
a living women no other kind of women i'm just wondering if their thoughts on why the time was right so right now for this to just take off the way we had house yeah but before that i would like to say one thing because you mentioned that i was saying that more famous people should have the guts to speak up and i was actually saying the opposite we should pay more attention to regular people speaking up i think that's why there needs it's very important unfortunately they seek without generalizing the sensational part of any story so an actor samus actor saying that this producer have asked me or rape me is way more sellable then. a regular person a regular woman saying that while it happens every day to regular women and they do try to speak up but no one is listening so it's very important for us to learn to listen and not just length give importance to those who are famous to the shiny part of any story because it's also deprives it of its strength and of light so
6:35 pm
you know depth i mean of course they have suffered i mean all these actresses have suffered but in no way am i'm going to be the bad woman saying that they also have waited all these years in order to speak up while it would have been a way better to many others to just say no like early morning i'm not i don't want to blame the victim but i have to speak about a certain responsibility thank you very much for that comment. around of applause to back to me to obviously words all about speaking up and jumana very early on and long before me too as well you were breaking taboos and bringing the body and issues of women's sexuality into the conversation in the arab world not an easy task let's have a quick look at this. shattering taboos in the arab world the art magazine genocide celebrates the female body and
6:36 pm
female sexuality. human have done is founder of the provocative magazine and is demanding self-determination for women she says women's power lies in their femininity and eroticism in her books puts an end to the traditional arab image of women she says i'd kill a share a zod the malleable playmate and want emancipated combative women and angry reckoning with patriarchy revolutionary in the arab world. and the mess. the silent submissive. killing machine here was trying to create a new model what reactions did you get to work the well obviously which was very much expected i had the haters and you know the threat mares and i had the supporters i mean it's because i mean these issues were not only for me
6:37 pm
about challenging my own society and what they have been telling me to be or say or do since my early childhood because this was i think depriving me of one of my most basic and sacred rights which is my freedom but it was also about challenging that the stereotypes and the west's you know and not all arab women are submissive or oppressed or very old or i didn't park my camel outside of it you know all these images and you do you think that it's a joke but some people still think this way about arab women until now i mean this is unfortunately why you need to have a healthy kind of. and why the media is important it's important to you for the media to not just seek the story of the woman who has been abused by her husband
6:38 pm
and has been stoned to death because poor veiled woman she was a she she dared to love someone else but also the successful arab woman and there are lots of them out there lots of them it's interesting looking back at just sad that one of the biggest scriber groups that you had was from saudi arabia. a country where big big changes have been happening for women and that was of course cause for great optimism in recent months the driving ban for women supposed to be lifted on the twenty fourth of this month and then very surprisingly in the past weeks really harsh crackdown on prominent saudi women this multiple arrests and the . into an expanded troubling and contradicting situation we actually have a saudi viewer in our in our audience i'm coming back to somalia but i'm going to go over to her and just introduce her for a second and a fact let's get you to stand up and get around applied. arafat or larger to from
6:39 pm
saudi arabia i'd like to know what you what are your thoughts on these developments in saudi arabia and how hopeful are you for real change for women in the country because of the last. month that heaven and. crown prince is supporting women now and we are so happy about that because if the laws come from satie and a cultural change if it's come from them to it will not have in saudi arabia i'm talking about my country because the system in my country working like this it is very difficult to make move from down to should he come from up to down on the other hand it looks like he thought things were going just a little too quickly with all the crackdowns and arrests of saudi women activists so what does that tell us obviously people within so i don't think it will stop anything it will continue the liberation the opening of the reaction
6:40 pm
and i think then after a few days as a very clear action to prove to all the wall that the change and saudi arabia is real ok so obviously optimism on your part part of that thank you very much for for actually tripping that. i'd like to come back to you for my. what are your thoughts on what's going on in saudi arabia and how hopeful because we are witnessing a times where religious radicalism as on the rise it's you know it's like a graph it's up and pointed to many times. and the arab world and most arab countries are very far from the separation nowadays and i mean i do i'm i'm glad that finally women and saudi arabia can that can be and the twentieth century they're still not in two thousand and eighteen but i'm glad they're at least able to to drive cars can you imagine that we are applauding
6:41 pm
a country just because it allows people something so absurd and they're only allowed women as as to drive a car why should we i mean they should have done this a long time ago i mean at least allow women to decide for themselves going to china was they want to do how they when they want to travel how they want to lay lives and i think that it's very important that women owned their their marriage too because what we can see in france for example is that there is a movement to force muslim women not to wear the hijab and i think that was an ex point ok i'm going to have. the bail liberation or suppression what do you think and what do our international guests say part two of the debate next week on arts twenty one the controversy about religion sexuality need to end the question what's next. as
6:42 pm
a woman you should be free to do whatever you want to do with your body if you want to wear hijab you should be free to wear it so even if you try whatever you can it is the men who are giving you what is your own right the ball meet you and time's up movement was generated by celebrity but there's been really millions of people empowered it's a white woman led movement and black women are forgotten in it the fact that arab women have disappeared from it do join us next week.
6:43 pm

6:49 pm
a weekend lull in the winds which had fanned the flames there picking up speed again. we're starting to see another series of santa ana winds that are going to start blowing here and working their way south for san diego and this house is very concerned we have over eight thousand federal state local firefighters on the front line with thousands on the ready prepared for the next event. the california fire department has warned of explosive fire behavior with gusty winds overnight and into monday morning. let's go right to journalist michael while he's standing by for us in santa rosa in northern california hi mike while fires are pretty common in california so what has made this wildfire so deadly. obviously as you mentioned wildfires we have a lot of experience with them over the past few years but there's
6:50 pm
a lot of things at play in paradise that are that it's different the community it is. it's a it's fairly remote it's a vacation community core of the population is seniors in a situation where people need to get out quickly it's tough for people to move quickly so i think as you see these numbers rise a lot of the people that you see are going to be seniors that get caught up in this . it's been common in a lot of the different fires we've seen and. those are the populations that are most affected in these fires mike how are firefighters coping with. it we're seeing a lot of fight or fatigue it's been as you mentioned the the new normal here in the state. is there really throwing everything they can at it whether it's a bulldozer lines or building fire lines throwing air attacks at it one of the interesting things we've seen these fires even using california prison inmates
6:51 pm
to help fight the fires out over two thousand of them i think are helping just clear brush and move anything that might make these fires grow more. if they're being paid less than two dollars a day so it won't really help any where they can get it what else are authorities doing to deal with the situation. really just throwing anything they can at it it's going to be air attack there are a lot of different agencies are helping from different states. you see as these fires go on you start seeing emergency crews come in from farther and farther away and you're seeing that with these fires with the new crews arriving hoping that the weather will help along the way and mike is there really any relief in sight in terms of the weather. that's what crews are looking at right. now in this week's going to be really important that we're seeing red flag conditions across the state
6:52 pm
over the next couple days sitting high winds temperatures rising really the conditions that are not for europol to firefighters so the earliest. chance of rain and more easter receding it's not until next weekend so the developments over this next week are going to be really important for their fighters helping. only families flames a little bit all right journalist michael wald for us in santa rosa northern california thank you very much for that update. let's catch up now on some other stories making headlines around the world officials say several people are dead after a suicide bomber struck a police checkpoint in the afghan capital kabul the explosion hit close to where hundreds had gathered to protest the government's failure to prevent attacks by the taliban no group has yet claimed responsibility for today's bombing. in yemen fresh clashes between rebels and pro-government forces in the city of data have
6:53 pm

6:54 pm
in the southern gaza strip the dead include a commander of the military wing of hamas islamist movement that runs gaza israel says a second soldier was wounded in the fighting but the clashes took place in that israeli airstrikes and returned rocket fire from gaza toward israel the incident casts renewed doubt on peace efforts between israel and hamas. our correspondent tanya kramer is in gaza city she joins us on the line for more on the story so tanya it's not that often that you see israeli security forces launch a raid on the ground in gaza what more can you tell us about what happened last night. you know that by going to the mall of apostles of information that's coming from all sides to understand that an israeli special forces commandos had entered the southern gaza strip as a car late on sunday evening the much quilting to the israeli army special operations and mission but given that nature we don't know exactly what they were
6:55 pm
doing what was their mission. they must have been uncovered which resulted in exchange of fire was meant to come up and it's very willing to come again usually a patient along the border area was also stupid followed by not the afterlife and if you have a posting in. one that is very close to the pillar of the car and the two rockets fired according to these very young in two thousand and then all of this comes at a time when told to say i'm going on understanding between israel and hamas made by egypt and to you and to eat the tension you can possibly to a longer term calm but this incident of course makes it much harder to teach kind of we mentioned a commander from hamas' military wing was also killed in this operation what do we know about him how significant a figure was he when the quitting because the military in the press conference
6:56 pm
earlier he was at the car you come on this is not how publicly known in gaza and from what we understand again from the school you can also statements by the israeli they are claiming that this was nothing of the nation has a particular leader but it was a scene. in the boston college and commission mission and that puts it can you mention that this comes at a time where there were talks ongoing agreements that allowed cash an oil into gaza that was badly needed there what impact do you think this fresh violence will have on those arrangements. while this is really still to theater i need to say what i can tell is that people in gaza but that help from the south of there is a very sorry that this might be in some way it's still escalate although i have said situation have been relatively quiet over the cost hours a month in gaza says there are no highs and that's the situation. at the moment meaning that foreign journalists are currently often i'll give you the gaza strip
6:57 pm
but one of the messages i think that the kind of the calmness and so it was that quickly off that into that it might give an indication that so far i'm not interested in an escalation but in gaza it is a very calm and quiet and people are aware that the situation contains and. cramer joining us from gaza time you tony thank you for that update germans have song americal has led celebrations marking the centenary of women's suffrage in germany speaking in berlin medical pay tribute to the women who fought for the right to vote one hundred years ago. so you don't know then the long fall on one of the turn of the century women around the world began fighting for their rights on it they formed at and gave each of the mutual support most ardent we should say that it was hard exhausting but ultimately a successful struggle to come on the twelfth of november today one hundred years ago women in germany will also finally allowed to take part in politics simply take
6:58 pm
i mean it was a key moment in the history of democracy. americal herself is germany's first female leader but the political scene is still dominated by men that he's going to kettle's reports on mixed progress since women first took the ballot box. here in germany we have i'm going to america so gender equality is happening in our country's politics right let's ask people how they see things and compare that interest to reality. can you guess how many may us out of ten in germany a man and female and if you could maybe. poured your and so on to the board. four out of ten a female and six out of. twenty eight all manner line to all female you're actually wrong actually it's nine men and one woman are only it's a lot of in. in the bonus act there are four hundred and one thousand men and only
6:59 pm
two hundred nineteen women that's sixty nine point one percent to thirteen point nine percent less than a thought of all parliamentarians women that's the smallest proportion of women the bonus track has seen in twenty years because there are more male parliamentarians they have a higher percentage of speeches and courts and even an actor it's cabinet men make up the majority photos like this made headlines recently these are the coalition negotiations after regional and actions and bev area and he is the leadership team in the interior ministry find the female. so why are there so few women in politics this is a question gender politics experts vital for has been researching. the topic of compatibility plays a major role balancing the burdens of family public service and politics self-confidence is also an issue it's not always easy getting ahead in this male
7:00 pm
dominated world at the local level only one in four politicians is female when i teach in a city council and the berlin district of the only woman in an office with four men . as i've already experienced in different places i personally and also with others that all women are looked at more critically especially political candidates people always ask questions like can she manage that party the s.p.d. already has a few quotes teach you ones that for all parties he's got a look around at the situation then german politics can sit. in current developments i have come to the conclusion that we will only be able to achieve gender balance if we institute binding regulation ice in germany women have been allowed to vote for one hundred years but gender equality in politics doesn't and that as long as those in government continue to be mostly men germany is the fall off the mark when it comes to gender equality. you're watching did n.p.r.
7:01 pm

7:02 pm

7:03 pm
this is the type of business as well. the euro is hovering around seventeen month lows against its u.s. counterpart investors are unnerved at the uncertainty over the italian budget the sched currency was pinned on the one dollar on thirteen cents on monday down slightly over half a percent from friday's close markets braced for a roller coaster week as the standoff between rome and brussels over italy's fiscal plan for next year comes to a head the european commission rejected the plan last month's warning that a government in rome to drastically reduce its budget deficit target italy already has the hike the second highest debt in the euro zone in relation to g.d.p. the commission gave rome until tuesday to present a new budget office disciplinary steps being taught in government insists any concession would be trite you tell your voters and amount to political suicide. meanwhile italy's five biggest lenders are considering opening a two and a three quarter
7:04 pm
a billion euro credit line with the central bank's deposit protection fund another indicator that italian banks aren't convinced that roams deficit spending will end well the credit line would serve to strengthen support in the event of a banking crisis italy's banks hold around three hundred seventy billion euros of government securities whose value depreciates when interest rates goes up. now let's bring in our financial correspondent on the copen frank is in this standoff with italy what our markets expect in this week what is the worst case scenario. well garrett let me tell you that this topic is really making an investor's here on the trading floor more and more war and you were already talking of all your occurs the currency was dropping during the week and already now to the lowest point since june last year well there are a couple of scenarios that investors are actually worried about all of this is reminding them of the financial crisis that happened in two thousand and seven and
7:05 pm
two thousand and eight we have to remember by that time the european central bank decided to change the monetary policy here for the eurozone to keep interest rate at this record level of only zero percent at the moment so there was this whole that this could potentially change maybe next year but with italy or right now in a constant crisis mode more and more investors do have doubt that this is really going to be the case of course the worse scenario would be you know if we would see maybe potentially a lender in italy really coming in such a crisis situation that other lenders might have to jump in for the moment this does not seem to be very likely because many lenders have those long term loans from the european central bank but then a brief it means banks as you mentioned are cause for concern and hope for the threaten the stability inside the euro zone briefly. here's what we have to
7:06 pm
remember just a couple of weeks ago we had this latest stress test that was made by the european central bank and the result about italian banks were actually and not very promising it does not seem to be the case that italian lenders are really prepared for such a scenario at the moment. thank you. move over black friday china's popular singles day has cost the u.s. consumer survey guns and to become the world's biggest shopping malls and the only on the very level hence the name which refers to the four ones in the date the shopping bonanza brought in another record amount this year but there are signs that sales on that they are beginning to slow down he sure this year single stay kicked off with a colorful gala complete with excited fans customers and a life tally of incoming sales like the one billion dollar mark fell after

7:08 pm
many people have been asking me about this two. singles they look said to achieve revenues of two hundred billion you want and will make changes as we go along i think we can bring it to three hundred billion five hundred billion maybe even a trillion. the sky's the limit though at the moment feet should remain firmly on the ground with the general slowdown in the chinese economy revenue growth has slowed from forty percent last year to twenty seven percent this year. we stay on the subject in a way the economic ministers from the association of southeast asian nations or have signed the e-commerce agreement that meeting in singapore has to streamline trade rules and boost economic integration companies from the ten member states will be able to apply for government contracts online. gain better access to the entire market but will have to accept more competition to the agreement also contains measures to protect consumers and personal update. let's go straight to.
7:09 pm
our finance correspondent is standing by and we just heard some impressive figures from singles day how important is the e-commerce sector for their countries. it is a very bottom insect a very important region for this particular sector especially with emerging markets like thailand even cambodia indonesia where already be had their own economists are retail is such as go jake grabbed and was thriving in these markets now estimates from twenty seventeen a former reported twenty seventeen zero point two a fifty billion dollars business that is he called the sector and that is expected to grow to eighty eight billion by two hundred twenty five with the internet internet economy going to grow to up to two hundred billion by that year so that
7:10 pm
already going to increase the rates is going to be also a very promising future for economists within this region alone. for us thank you very much. well a good red wine can set you back hundreds maybe thousands of euro us so a price tag of three hundred bucks us not all that impressive where the wind not from a largely unknown ranger actually made in china experts say it can hold its own now against competitors from other countries even france and the legendary luxury brand stands behind the new venture. the location of the vineyard of our union is described in its name above the clouds it's not metaphorical these grades grow at an altitude of twenty six hundred metres at the foot of the himalayas here
7:11 pm
the soil is rich and the climate is mild with moderate temperatures all year round the mekong river flows nearby for generations billett years here grew traditional food crops and the chinese government encouraged them to begin making wine instead operations got off to a slow start until more hennessy got involved the french luxury giant was impressed by the area and signed a thirty year lease but how did they believe connoisseurs will react to a chinese vintage. made in china does indeed have negative overtones not everything we do we do with passion. and we do it with the utmost precision to make the best wine possible to have the best wine possible. i believe we are one of the companies that will help revamp made in china label.
7:12 pm
making top tier wines requires deep pockets hennessy has brought both technical equipment and expertise to the region while the villagers have put in a lot of sweat pruning and harvesting the around three hundred plots and the collaboration is paying off. i so i see it's been quite surprising for our customers when they taste this wine most think it's a french bordeaux. but when they discover the bottle is from china all of them are excited they're quite surprised by the quality of the bottle. the label currently produces two thousand cases of wine a year even though the national appetite for the beverage has matured and the country's market is expected to grow to over seventy billion dollars the lion's share of the vineyards production is sold abroad the chinese as it turns out aren't

7:18 pm
at the break of dawn every day an army of city workers has been going all out to reclaim their city status as the cleanest city in the country. was given the cleanest city of war by the government. thousands seventeen and. i don't know that i got a whole administration. all of us are trying very hard to. figure out
7:19 pm
what. sort of city traditionally you persist with hygiene this what sort of what the annual friendliness index is a big deal a survey of the tranqs indian cities based on the level of sanitation and facilities for beast management. the want all of my sort will be asking us the countries of the world with on. my soon as model of cleanliness goes beyond efficient collection of garbage. combining traditional methods of segregation with modern processing blonds the city has been pushing fizzy to we used to be sent to landfills.
7:20 pm
one thing's for sure it has to be dealt with at every level right trauma many mycroft a small kitchen. right up to a hotel generating with a wedding hall a banquet hall this is generating ways to industrial campus to an office. everyone has to attempt to deal with that to the maximum possible extent in them around them and only send out what they can deal with four cities to manage. my student produces four hundred dollars of the. fifty percent of this is treated at compost blonds what little feat just processed by recycling units. the national figures however aren't quite as impressive. india produces sixty two million tonnes of. one of the largest jenner's heaters in the wood while eighty two
7:21 pm
percent different is collected only a quarter gets treated. most of the beast invariably ends up in landfills and sites. decades ago the local government decided to set up to waste management blonde in the north of my suit and. the good work by blonde was going to set the stage for the rest of the city. they always manage when there's like norway's applying online for the intimidation factor we had completely money to be receiving from our different watches my specific operation. as you can see we have bought rainy day waste collection. and we have also had
7:22 pm
a mess we gave amnesty the public. did about those employed in the good but. they've been given the title of not good money which translates as friends of the city. in developing the details we simply do it because all to create an opportunity for formal employment for these workers most of whom about to prolong informal back because. of the city corporation is not trying to bring more and more of them into therefore . they have rewarded i don't regard as. benefits particularly gardy yes i and yes it does like a health insurance or to build a new one by the. new york is wanting to.
7:23 pm
keep close to about twenty thousand households in this area of the city. one of the means responsibilities of the steamer for two to bliss is do court is to make sure that they collect wheezed that has already been segregated inside who. with the formal marking system in place did incentivized in the least is in order and penalized if it is a. little more than low but not used to first get done or do a new box or you know get forty five fifty or sixty marks with all of the citizens are you doing your job you are. going. to be the can but since ninety five percent if it's recycled reste back into the city to local entrepreneurs like sheep ingenue dodgy cash recycling of plastic is done here that is we are counting plastic into our and we can use this into
7:24 pm
stationary engines so after this weekend to come up with the new projects like making it much but the using another catalyst and making up off the facts which is another kind of recycling. the raise does not raise it is treated as a resource told you was a farce a geisha and oh we have to come work for the waste into the property. in. the city of my salute meal read between the city once again next year. but it's window on its way to achieving so much more than it's enabled to it's building a sustainable future. now it's only a matter of the imagination how we used to give the recycling to be used our next
7:25 pm
story highlights just that a small team of. mental enthusiastic benevolence has found a way to prevent plastic beast from flowing into the sea by installing traps in the hobby since it's rotterdam but what's even better is the created a floating park with the wind speed collected in these traps. this is a manmade floating nine and decided disused wharf in the dutch city of rest a dam and it's not just humans that find it appealing. it really works like a magnet for all these animals which have been already in the port but didn't ever really space to go through here around it's all brick steel and concrete. out of this is their first actual green structure within this area and all the face of birds and all the different government animals they come here. what makes this
7:26 pm
floating island unique is that it's made of recycled plastic fifteen thousand kilograms of trash the recycled island is a floating park a place of repose it's small just one hundred forty square meters in science and more of a prototype there's plenty more plastic trash virginal structures we see a lot of plastic loose in the coming from that industry also from the construction in the sides but also from the. wood in the city itself so it's really a reasonable amount of pollution that it's now still entering the north sea and it's really valuable we use this plastic as a recycling to make new products. russia dam has europe's largest seaport and is the netherlands leading center of industry and trade than even mass river flows through the city bringing tons of plastic garbage with it the trash ends up in the city and in the north sea departs found
7:27 pm
a set up special little traps to prevent it from being carried further along. this is really one of the harbors which is the most polluted so we are now here on the sides of the river and we see that when the river is there and the reaction really blows all the plastics into this harbor and now we're able to retrieve it there. the traps are emptied once or twice a month come on can i still always check things over. due to the proximity of the sea and its time than even mastery of always changes direction and that's a problem for the literature apps. the difficulty that we have or still have is that the direction of the stream change destroys the day so what we have to really develop is a system that retrieves the plastics but also contains it while the stream is going outwards and of the one and a half year old bio thing and test saying we're finally have
7:28 pm
a good result this thread works in all weather conditions. the concept has a ready been copied in far off indonesia there are two chaps that remove garbage from the water at the end of august twenty eight hundred more later chaps will be set up in brussels. back in russia to organize cleanup so also part of the recycling project at least once a month some months nest his team scours the river banks. the forty two year old himself has the task of cleaning up the bank at the edge of the lesser chaps. who have a lot of the tea bottles we have a lot of full. yeah all different kinds of plastics and it's very important that we can even open here because here we still have a natural slope and you see that with a difference in the water level with washes up here and if we don't take it away ourselves that can say here for years. and also when the water rises again it might
7:29 pm
take it down more the river and towards the sea. plastic garbage that gets recycled in order to create new litter traps and floating island. for common canasta the recycle park in rotterdam is an important first step towards getting plastic pollution under control he wants to set up the fledging platforms in other parts of the world to the sooner the better. use a good idea of product to do more than what it's meant to do and in the process save the environment is truly something when an american company by a life or death of a camping stools to provide electricity and a safe cooking alternative venue v how do we know guys how it works. cooking on an open fire is a common way to prepare a meal but the smoke can cause respiratory diseases.

shallow waters of the larger view. these underwater maybe those forests of the sea there was a little bit just like rain forest on the left damage to see results in evolution and loss of biodiversity and the slow growing plant plenty of time to recover and that's why scientists in germany are trying to help with artificial. it grows just off the coast in areas where the sea floor is splash. huge bands of seagrass are often called the oceans rain forests and they play a similar role in marine ecology they offer countless species both sustenance and protection. also produce oxygen and sent mr carbon dioxide by binding it in a long term form for the last two years with the project c art role in v.n.

wave and his colleagues have been trying to find out what other vital functions the marine plants might fulfill. the down and down energy transmitted in waves and also curb the power of currents. that in turn helps cut down on seabed erosion. seagrass help stabilize it so plays a role in coastal protection because the waves that arrive on the coast strike it with less energy. the first step for the researchers was to examine the condition of the sea grass beds on germany's coasts the results show that agriculture on land is proving poisonous to the marine plants global warming is also causing massive algae blooms that cut off the light that sea grass needs to grow european universities and partners from industry are working together on this project. there's

a huge amount of sea grass in the tropics but it's disappearing there because fishers often use dynamite and because trenches are being cut to lay pipelines that creates these corridors through the beds and on its own the sea grass is unable to repopulate those areas. now artificial sea grass could help provide a solution to the problem just like its natural counterpart and it would help dampen wave energy and prevent sea bed erosion providing the right conditions for natural sea grass to grow back in. the plastic sea grass is still in testing. the researchers want to know how long the blades have to be to prove effective and where the material has to be flexible and where it needs to be stiff. the testing at this facility should prove insightful. the in the way of r. and his colleagues try out currents at different speeds that tells them how well

they're artificial sea grass beds breaks the currents up. it works just like real sea grass that behaves in a way that's very similar to real sea grass field full of us we're going to be in the experiments that we performed and we've learned that the speed of the current changes both within our beds and on the upstream side of it. but as the mounts they construct the weight of natural fibers or plastic so the researchers are still looking for the optimal material sciences and i would think that it has to be as close as possible to the real thing but also easy to produce. and most importantly it has to disappear without a trace as natural sea grass grows back this kind of research takes time in the dark frigid salt water off northern europe the materials they're testing break down very slowly. on the tom and i tradition our dream is to produce
