4:19 pm
digital infrastructure about the needed but the governing coalition just come bring itself to africa. and after the 2 unusually dry summers and bad harvests farmers and central europe have to adapt them methods. this is do you have your business as in berlin welcomes global trade conflicts worsening or no deal breakers it looks like here by the day and germany's export heavy economy is paying the price exports have fallen 8 percent last year while industrial production has dropped 5.2 percent last quarter saw the economy shrink for the 1st time in years and should that continue in this quarter the country will find itself in a proper recession and the analysts say now is the time for german government to spend more and give the economy a helping hand but berlin is doing nothing because it could be political suicide for an already damaged coalition. german companies are receiving fewer orders
4:20 pm
exports are down and economic growth is falling accordingly as growth falls dissatisfaction grows many are calling for some monetary stimulus from the government to jumpstart the economy that's where german finance minister all of shows comes in he says berlin could pump up to 50000000000 euros into the economy if needed 1st emulous package. such a stimulus package would not require taking on new debt maintaining current government policy but in the face of low interest rates many economists are calling for germany to take on new debt which are many debt levels set to fall below 60 percent of g.d.p. this year it will be below the e.u.'s debt ceiling given the country a lot more financial flexibility as it stands the government already plans to invest around $150000000000.00 euros in infrastructure education and digitization in the next 4 years there's no denying that an extra 50000000000 euros would give a welcome boost to the german economy but for now the government is biting its time
4:21 pm
. the big question is why and i'll pass that right on to my colleague michele occlusion our chief political editor here at g.w. news bureau why is shows not reaching into the germans german tax coffers which are full of surplus money give the economy a helping hand well in fact he gets that question lost as well and really the concern in the government is that it would send the wrong signal to go back into debt let's just remind us it was after all the black sea or as it's called basically a hold on signing up to new debt is actually part of the german constitution it became part of the constitution part of the financial crisis and i'm going machall back then said look this way beyond housewife was right and that's kind of the germans are known as the scots amongst the europeans not really wanting to go into debt and that these big debts that governments went into also individuals went to was simply wrong so it's very much a symbolic issue not to go into debt at the same time we know that the finance
4:22 pm
ministry is currently going through the figures and he's entertaining the idea what kind of stripes of this new debt are tough if it actually comes to a recession here in germany just briefly let's remind our viewers germany is governed by a coalition of center left social democrats center right christian the members is their unity. well that isn't unity on a lot of issues but the black they are not going into fresh that is one of the issues that is pretty broad unity certainly between all of the finance minister who could be seen as a kindred spirit to wolfgang sawyer whose idea of actually anchoring this into nor here in germany it was in the 1st place let's bring in conor abuse now financial correspondent from frankfurt hope you can join us now comma if you can hear us. there he is doesn't germany can't economy actually need a stimulus or is it healthy enough to reinvigorate itself on its own.
4:23 pm
that is a very good question many businesses here in germany also many economists are convinced that in the past businesses have often profited from hard times because you know when a business cycle comes to an end when you're facing hard times you have to come up with innovative ideas how to find solutions to cope with the situation if you pepper an economy too much it gets complacent but this is the long this is the short term view and this is not why many economists are asking that mr scholz our finance minister gets a bit more creative in hughes ing you know the situation and why he should spend more he should spend more on the future or on the long term trends of the economy on our infrastructure on you know the challenges of climate change on digitalisation and stuff like this and in this situation why not profit more from
4:24 pm
the extraordinary situation that germany actually gets money from investors for the privilege to lend the money towards. let's come back to you what is this german obsession with the black 0 votes the north what does it mean a wire politician so sworn into it was because germans also you can see this in figures that don't like going into debt even if they don't get interests that's what we're seeing all around right now and it would be seen as a sign of weakness if the german government wasn't able to stick with this self-proclaimed goal it is kind of the last hallmarks of stability that the magical government can demonstrate and all of sorts the finance minister goes along with that let's just put it this way the leading photograph for what became infamous for being so tough on greece over that debt was all of his staff members forming the black 0 everybody behind you and manager and. as
4:25 pm
a leaving president say actually one of the experts who work that out is now in a think tank and is questioning the very concept right now so that's what we are and i think the next weeks and months will tell how adamant he will stick to it. back to you briefly last week even rumors that germany might invest more and provide some stimulus help lift it lifting stock markets around the world how important is this. well you're right out of course many other factors are driving the markets as well in particular at the moment the question about whether or not america the economy of there is facing a recession but germany is among the very very few players worldwide to be able to set a counterpoint to give a signal of optimism and of spending on the future calm a boost in frankfurt thank you very much same to. she's political ends.
4:26 pm
we stay on budget issues in the u.s. there's quite a different picture the u.s. budget deficit is expected to do to more than a trillion dollars in the next fiscal year and the nonpartisan congressional budget office warns that the federal debt is on an unsustainable course it says the budget deal signed into law earlier this month would increase deficits by $1.00 trillion dollars over the next decade the c.p.o. is also projecting slower growth in the coming years that means lawmakers will have to increase taxes cut spending or do both to put the brakes on spiraling debt. and out to some of the other business stories making headlines today shares in hong kong airline cathay pacific were down over 6 percent despite the hunk 2nd digs in inching up china's biggest bank i.c.c.

a cooling shower he knows that if the cows get too hot they produce less milt he's also worried about being able to feed his entire herd this year's harvest is so meager that friedrichs will have to sell some of his 300 cows. to get his own i have to find a short term solution which means 30 to 40 animals and i have to do something about the feed situation it's the only way to react quickly and that's the. friedrich's is expecting a disappointing harvest from the ground just bone dry and there's been little rain since the so the fields. the corn stalks are not as tall as in previous years but what matters most is the cob which in some cases hasn't grown at all if there is one it's very small. a whole new approach to tackling drought is to treat the corn grain before sowing and to arm it against a lack of precipitation with

a bluish layer that binds the moisture to the seed. over time the protective layer then biodegrades in the soil without leaving any residue the coated seed is new to the market organic farmer close him of a house has been testing it for the past 3 years and this satisfied with this year's corn harvest. yadi i'm trying to back the sooner they start growing the better the root development they grow really deep and that ensures that the plant doesn't travel up when there's a temporary drought they can survive longer. if i think i go ahead he makes things that coated seeds could boost his yield by at least 5 percent enough to feed all of his 100 cattle you definitely buy the more expensive seeds in the future. this. side is not undemanding come you have to do whatever you can. and if you can. the price is still affordable the cost of the special coating

4:34 pm
qualities of a rock star when he was a boy his father gave him a trumpet the rest is history music has always been like a curse with me it's the 1st thing in my life go to bed thinking about it and wake up thinking about. that passion made him a legend. miles started very early he looked at things differently he saw things differently without a doubt the most unique person i've ever known. the new film miles davis birth of the cool tells davis a story from beginning to end director stanley nelson unpacks the enigmatic troubled artist's highs and lows fame drug abuse domestic violence and of course music the weight miles davis lends his voice to and they one of the things that is a highlight of this film is that miles is the narrator we used clips from miles is all biography so miles you kind of hear miles a story
4:35 pm
a few miles the words i think that's unique and different perspective you know. into what made him tick in the intro and that one what drove his music aside from his voice the documentary features never before seen. and never before heard music made available by the artist friends and sony music. what emerges is the portrait of a musical genius in respect. tormented by the racism and divisions that surrounded him. but refused to let cliches define them. a lot of the old guys who went to school it would make you play like you're white if you learned something from theory you would lose the feeling in your play i wanted to see what was going on in all of music they put this whole right into the microphone changed the whole world and yes right there. he comes up with a style that is truly reflective of who he is he is angry antisocial but then he

assaults office pizza boy brougham brawl ugle. it's the 450th anniversary of his death in 1569 that's being honored because no one is quite sure when he was born the whole of brussels is celebrating the man who painted every day scenes of ordinary life when most elss were painting religious pictures or portraits. like a 1000000 puzzle pieces the paintings 2 of peter brew elder are all about details with the multitude of motifs and characters with live stories and secrets of their own beyond brutal is the new exhibition at belgium's royal museum of fine arts here computer animations bring the artist's peasant studies to life as minute details are blown up taking visitors back to the 16th century when europe was engulfed in religious wars. in the art of even in the backgrounds of his paintings he
4:38 pm
lends detail to his figures in composing his pictures he is able to leave the view as i saw instance by painting some figures with their backs to the viewer and then a full scale the feel of the myths another night of the. san bruno painted the seasons he was the 1st who dared to paid landscapes with snow. the originals are also here in brussels albeit much smaller and very fragile. painted them more than 450 years ago on thin oak panels the scenes are bursting with life. life that the master observed here in brussels mojado quarter with the artist lived got married worked and died. now a collective of street artists has brought him back to marvel with 14 murals featuring contemporary reinterpretations of his most famous works was that for me
4:39 pm
it was all about this theme of winter hunters in the snow that was the composition of the story i just transformed the hunting dogs into a sort of hybrid animals part dog part rat. the murals lead visitors on a tour of the neighborhood and of burrows works because if i put the exodus from egypt into a contemporary context since we're talking about migration so much. migration doesn't know time or borders and just how brutal like to add little stories i've got mary offering her donkey a virtual carrot because it's. brutal outdoors and for free 450 years after his death he still inspires it. and it really fits in brussels where people are always looking for murals of comic figures these are surprising because they aren't comics but that's a really neat. brutal influenced many other artists as well including his sons and
4:40 pm
grandsons he founded an artistic dynasty but none of his descendants painted details so 2 playfully so masterfully as peter the elder. games calm is an annual trade pfaff a computer and video games held in cologne in germany this year up to 400000 fusion assists are expected to visit making it the biggest game of dent in the world it is a huge business loss in america alone the business was worth 40 full $1000000000.00 making it an even bigger industry than hollywood i'll be talking to my colleague mike accrued about life his trends but 1st a look at games called 2019. monsters and elves posed peacefully side by side that means games cars started in cologne with international cars players developers and fans from all over the world. got us was on the special this
4:41 pm
year is that we've once again expanded games column is to almost 220000 square meters of exhibition space and so far we have a total of $700.00 exhibitors from over 50 countries here that's you and that simply shows the games com has become zeke local events for the computer games industry worldwide that's why. this year's theme is together we are gaining more than ever the focus is on the players because gamers don't just play games they also influence game development the community is absolutely everything we will recall pilot game for one person if they've got a problem because ultimately they are our audience they are all that really matters so yes the community is incredibly important. and that's particularly true of indie games the community also supports small game developers and has even made new games possible by financing. so we have the free for us throughout our community
4:42 pm
push for it with a crowd funding. that helped us vision a few ideas and also bring i.d. to the right that. it's not just the indie games that are more artistic and unusual also the triple a games the blockbusters of the gaming industry they already have big. budgets but even more money is now being pumped in a total of $2400000000.00 people are gaming around the world and those who don't have powerful hardware to play particularly demanding games can play games stored in the cloud. cloud gaming means i can play all the best of the latest games and top quality virtually any device because you don't have to download it on everything takes place in the cloud that's an exciting development you can see it games coming. in cologne every gamers heart is beating faster this week boredom certainly isn't the name of the game. all 3 of that report krueger's with me
4:43 pm
now so this was the big deal about cloud gaming well it gives you a play a more opportunities and it works like the streaming services we already know like netflix as long as you have a stable internet connection but this is the future there's no need anymore to in so upgrade the games and here as you can see you can imagine the amount of data that will be transmitted for some of the games and why they already have the quality of hollywood movies apropos hollywood we know about the sexist problems in the hollywood the gaming industry has had sex has problems as well well of course but it changed a lot we all remember the 1st female characters in the games she will sex objects man are so dominated in the community but today we have a lot of strong women in the games for example in assassin's creed they can choose if you hear as a man or women and of course there are so many famous and strong female players in
4:44 pm
the community today because the number of women in the game. is around 40 percent so the gangs change the industry change but. very often the tone between the place in the community is very sexist it's sexist and many women feel really insulted. every time they play games also have a reputation of being pretty aggressive lots of fighting also car chases but i'd say it's not really true is it the best selling game of all times guess what it is its tetris book the classic from the eighty's and still very successful and that brings us to another trend at games come and this is happening simulation in real time what it is in real time sounds very boring and you're you want to just get it get yourself a job as a form of the video our cricket flag a very much we leave you actually with some pictures from the home of faults again

5:11 pm
school. second most units are going to school. that's kind of were improper that way what good would a friend. let's take an example so they go into a school they have ducked 100 kids. maybe some of those kids will kill this teacher or some other place in the community and then then the other depends how much time they have been there then they go out. as there are as are going along to the rendezvous point where they're going to meet the other group and then start redistributing the kids if some of those kids fall then they can already start using them as practice so they'll have another kid kill that kid and so they start with 100 by the time you get to the rendezvous point you might have 70 or something 30 of them might have died along the way. i think they they use this in you sleepy
5:12 pm
you know they need to know if they're sleeping then he they get they get killed or something but anyways so by the time the 70 get there that they're already there's already been a vetting process they're already a little bit stronger than those 30 that died or a little bit lucky but usually they're stronger and then over time. that that number reduces they get there too slow they don't kill fast enough they they cry kill kill kill kill kill and so finally at the end you'll get you know like 5 or 10 that are left and those are the the strongest the physically the strongest and the most adept at killing because some people are good at it some people do you know some develop an appetite for that. and so that's how the other a function so they go through this darwinian survivalist selection process where only the strongest and the fiercest survive.

6:01 pm
quite important let me emphasize here that this decision came to have him as a big surprise to most of korea watchers. it was started in 2016 and it's the only one. sharing between japan and south korea that it's now going to be terminated and it's crucial it's her the threat posed by north korea i can give you a concrete example whenever north korea fires a missile test then south korea can rely on satellite technology from japan which is way superior to detect those missiles and i would say that actually. was benefiting much more from the military sharing peck them to hand so it's not really a rational decision and we can only hope that both countries will find a political to the solution before november 21st because until then the military sharing pectus still quell it and then it will not get renewed so i would say it's quite severe because what he started as
6:02 pm
a rapist now you can expanding to security issues now so what is also accused japan of having ignored south korea's repeated calls for dialogue and other conciliatory steps to resolve this bitter trade dispute as you mention as well as historical disputes what's behind these accusations. well i think what's behind that on national dependence they went south korea celebrated the independence from colonial rule. on the 15th of august the president was giving a speech and it was quiet you know you can't hold down the rhetoric against japan he was saying that we will gladly join hands with tokyo if they are willing to dialogue and cooperation but there was no reaction whatsoever from the different side and came as a huge political plan to what president moon and according to my thought the president will directly order to end the military a sharing him help so it's definitely an emotional decision to book

weekend out on the streets of hong kong. thousands of protesters calling for democracy and the rule of law one protest 1700000 people peacefully staking their claim on freedom police holding back this time with no tear gas no rubber bullets but will beijing give hong kong the freedom and autonomy it so desperately wants and why is the west been so reluctant to unequivocally back up the protesters and their calls for democracy. our topic today china's power play hong kong for trade to talk about this i'm joined by from didn't use asia desk he says china wanted to experiment with the rule of law and democracy in hong kong with one country 2 systems and now also has to make concessions. bernard botches a senior expert on egypt for the bertelsmann foundation based here in berlin he
6:20 pm
says coming as that happens center of a global competition of systems western democracies should show solidarity and resilience and the ability to learn. and cherry chances from work for g.w. social media team in berlin she says china's propaganda war is only uniting the people of hong kong and they will not stop fighting on the streets until they get a real response from the government. thanks so much to all of you for being here today and to our viewers of course from around the world as well while if we could start with you you know you say that it's all a matter of of the people talking in in hong kong and of beijing experimenting with this city have they lost control of the laboratory the laboratory that is right hong kong right now for the chinese government and are
6:21 pm
events taking on a life of their own there will. and see it is out of control beijing never controls hong kong in the real meaning but conscious of the public image in the international words the situation whole call is like it is hong kong trying to be the part of one country 2 systems with a part of the one of the 2 systems in the world with the demanding a democracy and rule floor all this written into law and that's what the dimona beijing is not ready to give them the freedom ok to 2 countries to use 2 systems one country one of the systems is clearly totalitarian the one in beijing hong kong has been frayed to this point a baronet you say that hong kong is on its way to becoming a police state. at least the police have played a role in the last couple of weeks that i think has surprised a lot of hong kong as because in hong kong there was a lot of trust in institutions and then the police and the police violence that
6:22 pm
we've seen and that hasn't been independently. researched is something that has shocked. us and is really at the heart of this conflict which for hunk owners and knows better than we all do is a conflict about what is our city going to be like in the future is it going to be just any chinese city or is it going to remain. differences ok let's point out for viewers that it's 2047 right that hong kong reverts to complete chinese rule so there's this window of opportunity there a cherry as a hong konger how is this city different from the rest of china. in that race in hong kong. people from there we always say. at. almost the same standard as how the us and woe is seeing it we also know people
6:23 pm
from china with friends from mainland china and me tell me this because we know that we have a difference when we look at freedom for example we always have a relatively high freedom of speech freedom of media we can get access to a facebook and twitter and the internet without any restrictions which is very different from the mainland china ok and it's also the court system as well it's been so successful because it has an independent courses and there is the rule of law that is also a main difference along with freedom of expression isn't it yeah exactly in hong kong we always trust such a system and we know that it's independent from and ministration we know that we have always trust that the government but not in the fit into and they. are a nature of this show ok so it's a long way from where we are today to a police state that so many people fear how one of the problems that protesters
6:24 pm
have been pointing to is the extradition law that the citizens of hong kong if they are charged with a crime would disappear to mainland china basically what's behind these fears of being extradited to mainland china why is that so terrifying for hong kong people over the reasons pretty clear because home and city are good by law but the mainland china is not the case therefore some accused in hong kong the if the. if they go to to mainland china their fear is not very transparency proceeds in the courts that's the main reason for the hope protests but now this bill is stats as the c.e.o. of the country but it's just the beginning off the lawn protests because finally the months. democracy is the real meaning like we understand here in west. what do you think what are the chances that this real democracy is how put it as we know in
6:25 pm
the west can be protected by the current leader of the city of all go. i don't think promoting democracy is the job that kerry has been given by the beijing government the basic law said that potentially hong kong could have free elections it's not very definite there is it's a it's unclear no but that is what hong kong people have been hoping for the longest time that at one point there will be full democracy and beijing has made it very clear in the last couple of years that that is not going to happen and it's carried. through to no squash these protests some peeps more taking says it could have but your home call me says you should have both because in the basic law is that eventually and gradually it would happen well potentially so we believe that in the end it would happen and we're looking forward to this ok cerium you also pointed to earlier social media that's very much part of china's propaganda warfare
6:26 pm
aimed at not only the people inside all gone but the mainland chinese as well it shows that beijing really wants to get control of this process the protest process quickly as possible is there a fear in beijing in how this question would apply the use well that that the protests will leave hong kong and move to other parts of the country that we could see protests elsewhere in china as a result of yeah. i think the propaganda war by china itself very often enough and successful in hong kong and it's all very successful in the international media as well because hong kong people have been very used to this kind of propaganda. their statements and people mainly use it mainly see it as a joke more than believing what they are saying yes so and also hong kong people are really trying to be they are really trying to get international attention and
6:27 pm
a lot of protests all guys in other countries as you said but could the social media propaganda. another propaganda lead to protests that will move to other parts of china or do you think that's that's a situation that's to be excluded that these protests are not transferable to the we gars for example the minority muslims oh i don't think they're going to move somewhere and other chinese cities because it's not going to work because the home call is to a free city you may go to a street and demonstration but in china the simple ways we don't know exactly what happened happened really happened in mainland china we don't know what exactly happened why it happens and the police have a very strong hand and they would make you disappear for long periods and that's very risky for all of the parties but they're ok we're going to focus more now on the propaganda war being waged on numerous fronts by beijing those fronts include global social media platforms state run media from entertainment to films to
6:28 pm
internet news sites and of course to state run t.v. as well. this is how chinese state media are presenting the situation in hong kong as a city in chaos with mass protesters prepared for violence. to me accuse of being bandits and terrorists. this is the chinese government's take on the temporary occupation of hong kong airport. we express our strongest condemnation of this new terrorist act and express our deepest condolences to the injured mainland compatriots and hong kong police through. the newspapers are also full of images of violence this propaganda seems to be plausible for some citizens who didn't think i think that it's ok to take to the streets in protest in a normal way but you shouldn't destroy public order and carry out violent acts only
6:29 pm
terrorists do that kind of thing. state media have also been showing these images of troops exercises in syngenta on the border with hong kong. but will china really resort to own arms to crush the resistance in hong kong. ready or what do you think about chinese a propaganda aimed at hong kong and the rest of china how effective is that different is and we heard from cherry this offer effective in hong kong what about on mainland china to people by all that. that's the big question i think the interesting thing and you pointed to that is that. in hong kong it doesn't work and it doesn't work although there's been more than 20 years of strong propaganda strong propaganda in schools and it didn't work and i think this demonstration came as a surprise to beijing because it in thought we have this covered so the big question in mainland china is do people believe all the propaganda yes in
6:30 pm
a way they do it's what they're fed with but it doesn't mean that they are happy with the system that they're happy with their own lives and that there's not a lot of undercurrents of dissatisfaction that could blow up nobody had a protest like in hong kong on their books and the big question for beijing is how is it conked going to control its own population ok. how what do you think what is china not getting right about why is the propaganda not succeeding there is it simply that hong kong people have access to western media is that what's going on there there is no saying china's which is very good is like a metaphor for this reason because the asian chinese intellectually writing from upstairs downstairs when they're reading books always why home cause the hong kong regard hong kong is part of bristol there right from left to the right hand side is
6:31 pm
always east no i just think in beijing they also tried into the body's response and how we've read that's exactly that's. you know everything what the party in the states say it's too and they didn't have the 2nd sort of independent source because of censorship that's the reason and i don't see. chinese the states around maybe a is going to have the control they might have a conscious of the public opinion within the mainland china but what they want it's have an international opinion a china friendly international being what they are trying to do not over the the facebook and twitter ok. what do you think of propaganda is not going to work what are the options for beijing to get hong kong in line. to answer all that the month of hong kong people 1st of all this is i think in every mind of this and they know very well what they want and what they're fighting for and they're not going to stop until they get that the months i'm set and also there's one thing about. a
6:32 pm
public opinion in china maybe chinese government thing that they could control the public opinion but the fact is that chinese people are they are so afraid to speak out that it's never we are never able to get what they're really thinking because they cannot speak on social media they cannot speak on camera so maybe they are really thinking like hong kong people just that they can speak up maybe they want the same freedoms but we simply don't know that well the chinese communist party is track record on respecting human rights is of course dismal the occupation of tibet destruction of its culture in term and devote a 1000000 muslims of course as well and the bloody suppression of the democracy movement at tiananmen square in 1989 now this was the central point of. efforts to crush the human rights movement 30 years ago and it
6:33 pm
was a savage reality when tanks literally rolled over young pressers protesters in the square of heavily peaceful we all remember that in tiananmen square young men and women who had the audacity just like the courageous citizens of hong kong today to call for their voices to be heard. their voices matter just as much as the highest functionary in the communist party and that all people must be equal before the law that will is what it was all about back then it is now and the question is those voice those voices 30 years ago they were drowned out in blood we haven't heard them since then not in the way that we're hearing them now at least in hong kong. it's a big question i know but after looking at the images of tiananmen square from 30 years ago if we could start with you should we be concerned about the possibility
6:34 pm
of another tiananmen square in hong kong i think we should be concerned but i don't think it's very likely tenement is still a trauma for the chinese communist party. beijing knows that it would be drastic if the p.l.o. a the people's liberation army actually went into hong kong and i don't think it's necessary nowadays because the party has different means of putting people on the pressure it has all the technical means it has the companies that are being put under a lot of pressure now cathay pacific and many others so i don't see a big likelihood at the same time i don't see a very good outcome for the hong kong people it's going to be a very unhappy ending a very unhappy ending no good what do you think that means gerry what would be a very unhappy ending have you excluded as bernard has the possibility of another gentleman square i think hong kong people of every well aware that china is trying
6:35 pm
to scare hong kong people with violence and the possibility of sending me i think many of them just try to acknowledge the fact or even if they know about this they would think that they have nothing to do this if it ends up like this they would they would take action but that for now they only the money is to have answers from the government what do you think oh i don't i don't think this. happened again with china sort of years ago is complete different from the china today because channels always says it's now a responsible big nation the international word and they're going to use force because in the international conflict china always says we want peaceful means to solve the problem they can be that china says when i have a problem i hope bec yard i just make my soldier suit or to
6:36 pm
give it clear that it's no problem or is not under than the ball and not the outcome and is china's going to celebrate 60 years of funding of the people's republic china beginning of october. that's coming up yeah i don't believe they're going to be have a very very bad image in the international press when the pira is marching to hong kong ok so china plays a very long game though the communist party in beijing. if we look at the past if we look at what's happened in tibet what happened at yemen square the internment of the weak corps i mean beijing is not adverse to reverting to force at the end of the day it could and would because hong kong has nuts or legal framework this is a part of a not a system the legal framework assess the peary could be essential hong kong if the c.e.o. of the leader of hong kong officially os peaching to do that about i'm not sink kerry lamb as a leader of the city is going to do that ok well how is the west responded there's
6:37 pm
been a mixed response french and german leaders have called for dialogue about the situation the us congress has condemned china's heavy handed police response president trump has called on the chinese president to exercise restraint. but like to see hong kong worked out in a very humanitarian fashion io prisoner g. can do it he sure has the ability i could tell you from personal logie certainly has the ability to do it if he wants to so i'd like to see that worked out the humanitarian fashion i think it would be very good for the trade deal that we're talking about. believe is only donald trump responded to this in terms of a high level world of politician is the us the only country that can bring pressure to bear on beijing i think hong kong people are trying to. the international community not. only the u.s. but also the also germany and lent to put pressure on china but they also very well
6:38 pm
aware that only if it's only what it would like. even if international coming to. china if there are no other action for example economic sanctions all. that was for them mean anything what do you say. expressing concerns kind of pressure and china has to serious take taking to consider. sanctions is not the way out a way out would be that beijing hong kong they going to negotiate in the framer bung country to systems about the way the timetable at least how the democrats democracy could be implemented in hong kong like a direct like a general election ok i don't know what i'm listening to terry though that's already been decided this 2047 when china resumes control of hong kong until then the chinese people or the people of hong kong rather want democracy the way i'm
6:39 pm
hearing you is that gerry that's nonnegotiable yeah because for us we don't believe what we're trying to. extension a fun country to system we don't want to believe that. by the 2nd way it will become just and not the city of china we want to have an extension we want to have the 2 system for africa ok the 2 system forever let's take a listen now to some of the protesters and what they have to say about their hopes their fears and their dreams franco. proponent of the movie come out to protest the more people will be arrested but we still will not leave until we get what we want. drew he says with more of those emotional talk though it's a lot more he knows the north pole polls will be spoiled because. we can easily be recalled for home to do this we can vote on more but the news is going to come
6:40 pm
close democracy was never before we share the same values as us and do you think that this cycle of democracy we fight for justice and so we pull out those countries can stand up and speak up for. ok after listening to those protesters are what we're seeing in hong kong or is it something that's shaping up to be another clash of cultures on one side clearly a one party illogical system on the other a multi-party democracy that supports the rule of law is this a clash of a cultures that we're seeing take place focused on hong kong that has to do with china. i prefer the term competition of systems none of us has an interest in a real clash when we're definitely in a global situation where we have established western democracies on
6:41 pm
the one hand on the other hand we have a rise of authoritarian systems led by china and that is part of the conflict that is playing out that is part of why the u.s. is getting involved on a high level because the u.s. and china have this trade and everything else will going on so more trouble for xi jinping is something that donald trump obviously enjoys but it's also something that concerns us in europe because in hong kong we say we see the playbook that china is using to handle dissent and calls for democracy and that is a much much broader question how is it more of a clash or a competition and i prefer the word to the term co-existing because the system of the coexistence of what china doesn't want is that the between the want the 2 systems that one system is challenging the other should be a coexistence that says to keep the hope one country stable cherry's the west's
6:42 pm
approach right now a good one should the west back off a void provoking china not looking like it's being involved in the protests right now. speaking from the perspective of a hong kong person off cause we would like the west to speak out more to give more pressure to china but that may be in the best interests of all of these less than countries because of all the other reasons because of economy because of trade but then if we had just speaking about the value of the end favor him then obviously the west has this responsibility to. how should the how should the west stay up stand up what does it need to do to show to the rest of the world that it indeed believes in the value. on which it's based i think showing solidarity is important i think honesty is also important i would be very happy for leading european politicians to come out and say we support this this is illegitimate show of
6:43 pm
concern by the hong kong people china is trying to undermine the legitimacy of these protests and we should show no this is gittin that on the other hand we should also be very open and saying. you can expect this from us but you can expect more we have interests in china we are in a very different very difficult situation this is how far we can support you but please see the complicated situation that we are and ok our last question to you do you think this is going to end peacefully you are promoting a coexistence of the 2 systems is a go dand well believe the going to end well because a single way out is. between hong kong beijing and that's that they have to the homework they have to do right now and sit down at the table and start talking that's right sherri we can talk more some point about extending the freedom past 2047 or out of time though i'd like to thank all of our viewers from around the
6:44 pm
world for joining us on quadriga today and of course our guests here as well. for all of us thanks so much for being with us.

international crisis look at last behind the record number of 5000 realities on and get the latest from visit or to coming up security is ramped up in the southern france city of beatitudes as it prepares to host the g. 7 summit this is the focus on the fight against inequality. and in fairness to live strong muslims refused to return. and to me and mine and demand full citizenship under syrian rights as other living in the country. i don't but i'm on the touchy about good to have you with us international concern is growing over the record number of wildfires in the amazon in brazil french president in manama crow has called it an international crisis treating our house
6:50 pm
is burning literally the amazon rain forest the lungs which produce 20 percent of our planet's oxygen is on fire but this is president also not who has slammed the remarks a sensationalist saying the crew is trying to make political political gains in what he calls an internal matter for busy well it's not also says this country lacks the resources to fight the fire look controversially he accused environmental groups of starting the fires in a bid to embarrass the government the effects of the blazes meanwhile is being felt far beyond the areas on fire. the amazon a blaze thousands of hectares disappearing every day this map shows the extent nearly 40000 individual fires burning right now and this nasa satellite imagery shows smoke visible from space there are competing explanations for why this is
6:51 pm
happening. brazil's president is defiant he blames foreign backed environmental groups for setting the blazes to discredit him or give credibility to n.g.o.s have lost money without money from norway and germany they're without jobs so what do they do they try to bring me down. what about them. there are strict laws in place but critics say president balsa narrow has failed to enforce them and encourage bloggers and ranchers to claim the amazon basin as their own problem if you will then the problem is that the government abandoned policies abandoned know how and has an attitude of disgust toward environmental scientists and activists that least. the impact is felt most immediately by indigenous people who have made the rain forest their home for centuries. spaces with each passing day we see the destruction and runs deforestation and logging.
6:52 pm
was sent because the farmers don is a bit more but every moment we feel the climate changing. the world needs the forests we need it and our children need it. but also narrow made developing the amazon into a campaign promise one he's not likely to give up easily. joined by journalists not have pontus and bowed in southeast in brazil welcome non-defensive or can you bring us up to date as to what's the latest situation with the fires burning in the amazon forest oh good morning from brazil new situation here it's dramatic the numbers of. the last days and it's out of it's right when bulls are not who says he has no way to come back to this fire because the proportion is really really big we haven't seen this in
6:53 pm
brazil for the last 20 years or so and it is expected it will heat a record year in 2019 is very dramatic the situation and why are these fires reached such extreme levels and in your assessment who's to blame. well x. says that the fires is tied to my human soul 9090 percent of the cases this happened in the amazon and the local paper has recently published a story about the day of fire so this means that. the farmers the local farmers in the amazonas estate would demonstrate the support. to the president sold they would have been. in the region and we have seen this from the satellite images all here we say for our from the our
6:54 pm
history we can say that it fires here at my human eye human causes and now it's at it's and dry season so in brazil we have no rain in the amazon region and to tober of this all this. business combination. mad for the forests and for them for the planet. is running out of control but not it why would people burn the forest to show their support for president also not what's the connection there. so this is a question well bozo not to. promise and he's counting. that the far no call farmers and. likud explored on man who has said that we have too many areas we have for restoration
6:55 pm
we have too many protected areas we have too many indigenous territory so he said that brazil it's more of these areas so this so these farmers they support both are now in this way and they try to communicate stands ok tables are not who we are here we are waiting for you 2 to 3 years to exploit this area here in brazil in amazonas all this protected area and burned the forest will be. poured it's very strange and i'm so sorry too it's hard to explain this connection but you know we have a difficult situation and our qantas here we can see is of a diff a difficult situation because clearing the forests as a means of using that land from other sources not different is in barro in brazil
6:56 pm
thank you very much for that update from there and now let's get on the perspective on this story i'm joined by yon burner he's a professor at the university of bonn in germany specializing in 1st conversation can converse a conservation and the problems of deforestation welcome professor on the i was so produces 20 percent of the was oxygen as we mentioned so our this ringback fire is threatening our oxygen supply. you know the fires are not threatening oxygen supply they off course affecting the global climate in the long term and that's why we're concerned about them so what's the best way to fight fires off this number and size . well brazil has shown actually in the past couple of 1015 years that it's possible to make a large scale effort to reduce deforestation rates in the amazon and it's a pity to see that many of these efforts no seem to basically be reconned by what
6:57 pm
the new government is planning to do and have started doing so you seem to see there's a direct link between the policies of the government and the fires that are raging in the country in the amazon forest right now yes we and many colleagues in the world have been working to evaluate different measures of the brazilian government since 2004 that were aimed at reducing the frustration the amazon and it was possible to show very rigorously that these measures have been effective and they are of course only affected if the government transmits the will to conserve and stick to its own legal regulations and if the government starts basically to. seed different ideas of how these policies could change even without changing them it has an effect on the behavior of people on the ground so not 650000 hectares of forest has already been destroyed is this kind of damage can it ever again this
6:58 pm
loss ever be replaced what's difficult to replace even a long term is the biodiversity it has been lost but forestry growth and they can regrow fast so the. carbon dioxide that has been released into the atmosphere in these different station processes can be recaptured by recross but for the force regenerate to its original state that takes many many years professor young burner from the university of bonn thank you very much for sharing your expertise with that thank you. france is present in one and mccraw wants to put the amazon fires on the agenda of the g. 7 summit that starts tomorrow in b. audits he hosts talks with the leaders of the world's major economies on a wide range of topics from tensions over iran to the bleak outlook of the world economy but the main theme of this is meeting is the fight against inequality in it in all its various forms including in g 7 nations own backyards. in
6:59 pm
developed nations the gap between the rich and the poor has reached its highest level in the past 50 years the average income of the richest 10 percent of the population is now about 9 times that of the poorest 10 percent. the anger of those that feel left behind was most popular in france this year's g 700. that was a trick of the yellow vest protests that raged for 5 months and false president mccone to announce a host of measures to redress economic inequality. that anger has also sparked a trend towards and she establishment an anti elite movements donald trump's provocative rhetoric chimes with that mood. as does the brig's

7:02 pm
a ago today an estimated 2000000 still indians latvians and mithu unions formed a human chain across 3 of their countries to protest against soviet june now pro-democracy demonstrators in hong kong are drawing inspiration from that historical moment with a peaceful protest of their own organizers in the financial hub but want to replicate the so-called baltic way campaign as i've asked supporters to hold hands along 3 main railway lines that run through the city but disciplines have been urged to remain peaceful and to avoid clashes and marches our correspondent shot a chance and bill is in hong kong that's where she's been following that story for us a welcome charlotte tell us more about this hong kong with a white house event being mocked that. i mean it is just getting underway here at the moment but i'm sure you can just about see behind me
7:03 pm
that people are starting to hold hands on this main shopping district here at the moment now this event is expected to last for a couple of hours the organizers have said on social media that they want it to remain peaceful and is under stripped of his possibles that means whatever passes by is trying to walk through people just let them pass they want to keep this calm peaceful nondestructive and they say send a message to the world about what this pro-democracy movement really stands for that's particularly in light of some of the light violent scenes that we've seen in recent we can golding protesters take out that we've seen street clashes this is a very different kind of event and it really just goes to show how inventive this protest movement has become constantly trying to evolve and find different ways of making their voices heard and making themselves relevant seanad entering the 12th weekend of protests water else's land.
7:04 pm
there are more protests planned for this weekend. both on saturday and sunday it will be interesting to see whether or not we have a repeat of last weekend which is one of the 1st weekends without take ass on the streets of hong kong say people that we spoken to say that they hope that it will remain peaceful this weekends now this is going to be another big test for this movement last weekend sunday so old as it's a 1700000 people on the streets still voicing their support for this movement 11 or 12 weeks gone so this weekend is going to be another crucial test to see whether they can maintain that momentum into the going week. in hong kong thank you very much for that update. now looking at refugees living in camps in bangor they shut a fuse in to return to me and ma are you unmonitored attempt to return some 300 refugee families of the country freezed on thursday no one turned up to get into buses waiting to take them back the fear of returning persists after more than
7:05 pm
700000 of them fled a brutal crackdown in myanmar phil says attempted return was the 2nd time the un had tried to get refugees to go back under repack creation deal between bangladesh and the man government through his fear perhaps best articulated by what one of them said to the visiting the refugee camps in the city of cox's bazaar in bangladesh if they force us to go we will die yes more on what the report found in those camps that are not. as room is spread that they would be forced to return to yemen tension is because here in pa among the refugees and i am my. father's take their daughter's clothes off. and then rate them in front of their parents. this woman is

referring to the brutal crackdown by me and my military 2 years of hundreds of thousands of fled to pakistan day. almost 2500 of them went for their names were on the list of refugees selected for repatriation to me and mom bangladeshi government officials to up the list but it was up to the un to break the news to the rescue to. mohammed it came as a shock. and belongings will be in danger over there and our children and wives won't be safe if they force us to go we will die. out. one of several ethnic minorities in me and mom but the government there does not recognize the most full citizens they have faced decades of discrimination and times violent repression and not allowed to travel freely and lack access to basic services in
7:07 pm
law has promised to provide them with powers and id cards but no one we talked to believed you go to his insurance or. many was so frightened that they spent the night before the repatriation with their friends when the mountain surrounding the camps normal. wandered around all night too terrified to return to this. day we were heard they would take us today i got so scared i was afraid they might force us if. i had our promise they work force anyone to leave and the un insists repatriation must be voluntary and to survey the refugees to determine whether they want to return on this 1st day of repatriation not a single refugee is greed to go home as long as me and must government cannot prove it will plug full rights to the remainder it's unlikely any of them will change their mind. i giraffes have been given more protection in

a bid to court the dramatic population decline the convention on the international trade of endangered species all scientists has agreed to regulate the buying and selling of giraffes and body parts now the number of africa's gentle giants has shrunk from 160002 just under 100003 decades. to raf's they're both majestic and lovable perhaps even more so with the one. in fact such idiosyncrasies make it easier for researches to recognise their old buddies. to be in a really wild close and to have such a close connection with individual wild animals that you might be looking at them from one side and you already know when they turn around what you see on the other side just like knowing a friend. and indeed a friend for life. john daugherty 1st came to national reserve 21 years ago as

a carpenter a pretext for getting up close to his favorite animals. now research or he knows africa's giraffe population as a whole has shrunk by 40 percent over the last 30 years. during the lifetime of the oldest giraffes here in somebody's national reserve 7 out of 10 of the species has disappeared poaching is one of the main culprits giraffes are often killed to eat when other food sources are running low but the somebody who tried who live near the park stopped such poaching long ago thanks partly to education work by john's colleagues tribal elders have noticed a change in stocks to. use to be many giraffes here now there are far fewer of them . without your rafts there would be fewer tourists and less income for the somebody who sells souvenirs. but tourism comes in different forms
7:10 pm
it also includes trophy hunting which is legal in southern african countries like south africa namibia and zambia. this american woman for example shelter a red year off in south africa she defended her action by saying her hunting fee would help maintain giraffe stocks that's a view shared by many south african governments dockets he says that's unacceptable and he's not alone the southern african development community now once trophy hunters to prove that they're hunting 1000 danger animals stocks i'm personally very pleased opinion was divided but i'm delighted that science has come to what i think is a very sensible decision that will help african countries faced with declining populations to save them for all of us for the future. the hope is that such measures will prevent giraffes from experiencing the fate of so many species that

7:19 pm
visit members of the people in the amazon rain forest. the rain forest is a vast source of medicinal plants researchers are trying to identify their active ingredients and find new ones is. another trend in medicine artificial intelligence that can help diagnose diseases but 1st a look back in time. you noted of in she was an amazing anatomist who did about 30 and created exquisite drawings of what he found the discovery of x. rays allow doctors to look inside our living bodies without cutting us open. ultrasound further change diagnostic methods now scans of various kinds connected to computers are generating lots of data so much that it's getting hard for radiologists to process alone artificial intelligence can help. here at s n university hospital about a 1000 patients have radiological exams every day.
7:20 pm
we're giving you a small dose of contrast agent. this results in countless images that have to be evaluated for that doctor's depend on high powered computers and increasingly artificial intelligence. because they're simply more data. photographed one hand and that wasn't much data of course it's exploded today. actually the computer doesn't even look at the images it looks at all the ones and zeros that make up the images. and the computers can infer a lot more information from high resolution m.r.i. and c.t. images than humans can to recognize the abnormal patterns indicate disease in the fine gradations of grey tones. radiologists need years of training and the utmost concentration here's how the human brain accomplishes this task our billions of
7:21 pm
nerve cells are constantly forming new connections in the brain and breaking down others this is how we learn and how patterns are impressed upon our minds so that we recognize them. the problem is that the more data the brain has to process the faster it tires out and the polls before you look at thousands of images and even as a non radiologist you can guess that a finding will slip by you because you're tired that doesn't happen to a computer and we have extremely large quantities of data to analyze it well you need computer power. or computer problem after all computer programs are superior to human beings when it comes to recognizing patterns but 1st the computer needs a kind of basic training it's presented with a certain pattern then it compares all other patterns with this template and decides does the pattern match or not.
7:22 pm
programs that recognize patterns have been used in the field of radiology for years . foresting now wants to deploy artificial intelligence to help detect damaged brain tissue. this is a cancer patient who had an acute stress and an expert sees that this c.t. here is not entirely normal this is a that requires years of training or if we analyze the images with ai then it highlights this area showing that a stroke has occurred here in. this way radiologists don't look at several strokes a day like we do you can at least use this as an aid. whether they accept the suggestions as something they have to decide for themselves or so many. artificial intelligence. ai goes beyond mere pattern recognition the aim is to imitate the way the human brain works using software artificial neurons are
7:23 pm
connected with each other in layers and fed with an algorithm a sequence of instructions. the task here is to recognize a circle the 1st images of various shapes are fed into the system. during the learning phase a human tells the system whether it correctly recognize the image or not the system changes the connections between the artificial neurons accordingly. the ones that lead to the correct result get stronger those that lead to the incorrect result get weaker that's how artificial intelligence learns you're seeing something here that no one else in the world can see only here it's an absolute world fust. thing and his team are trying to further improve the skills of their ai system. the scene the program is still in the learning phase. and it's much
7:24 pm
more years in human form what we have here is an earlier exam of the current exam and we see these white stripes that we didn't have here before it all so that's new is no deceit as a radiologist i can see it very well now i can work through the entire finding from top to bottom you know that's what what scene a does this help me by color coding the differences between before and after you know the newest changes a shown an orange to visualize it while the previous image is moxon blue. scene i list the old and new images exactly on top of each other and makes every difference visible for example whether a tumor has grown but that's not all. in the background the artificial intelligence system calls up similar images finding some treatment recommendations from medical databases and textbooks stuffed. ai is much faster and more systematic than a human being could ever be and this way it provides radiologists with crucial advice on diagnostics and treatment becoming
7:25 pm
a 15. second look at different images of this disease that have been confirmed and compare them. and i also have the patients clinical information as well as clinical information that's typical for this disease if you do certain persistent. learn successfully programs like ciena need clear exemplary images and diagnosis after all ai will only get smarter if doctors and programmers provide it with good data. so i don't think it makes any sense for me as a doctor aim to be low at best a mediocre. or for an i p person to take up doctoring as a hobby each of us should play in the champions league of our own disciplines in the champions league. forcing is convinced that in future more and more of the growing flood of data in radiology will be prescreened by dr ai decisions about
7:26 pm

7:50 pm
produce 20 percent of our planet's oxygen is on fire but this is president general synonymous land the remarks a sensation this saying mccraw is trying to make possible political gains in what he calls an internal matter for brazil. well it's not also says his country lacks the resources to fight the fire look on traditionally he accused environmental groups of thought in the fires in a bid to embarrass his government the effects of the blazes is being felt fabi on the areas on the fire. the amazon a blaze thousands of hectares disappearing every day this map shows the extent nearly 40000 individual fires burning right now and this nasa satellite imagery shows smoke visible from space. there are competing explanations for why this is happening. brazil's president is defiant he blames foreign backed environmental
7:51 pm
groups for setting the blazes to discredit him or his bid to be able to n.g.o.s have lost money without money from norway and germany they're without jobs so what do they do they try to bring me down. or what about them. there are strict laws in place but critics say president also narrow has failed to enforce them and encourage bloggers and ranchers to claim the amazon basin as their own problem if you will then the problem is that the government abandoned policies abandoned know how and has an attitude of disgust towards environmental scientists and activists that least of. the impact is felt most immediately by indigenous people who have made the rain forest their home for centuries. with each passing day we see the destruction advance deforestation and logging. was sent because the forest dies
7:52 pm
a bit and at every moment we feel the climate changing. the world needs the forests we need it and our children need it. but also narrow made developing the amazon into a campaign promise one he's not likely to give up easily. abound joined by journalist nadia pontus and in south eastern bizzle welcome non-defensive are can you bring us up to date as to what's the latest situation with the fires burning in the amazon forest. good morning from brazil the situation here it's dramatic the numbers of. the last days and it's out of its right when bulls are not who says he has no way to come back to this fire because the proportion is really really big we haven't seen this in brazil for the last 20 years or so and it is expected it
7:53 pm
will heat a record year in 2000 i very much in this situation and why have these fires reached such extreme levels and in your assessment who's to blame. well x. says that the fire is is tied to my human soul 9090 percent of the cases this happened in the amazon and the local paper has recently published a story about the day of fire so this means that. the farmers the local farmers in the amazonas estate would demonstrate the support. to the president sold they will have been. in the region and we have seen this from the satellite images so all we say howard from the our history
7:54 pm
we can say that it fires here my human eye human causes and now it's at it's and dry season so in brazil we have no raining in the amazon region and to tober all this all this. business combination. it's bad for the forests and for them for the planet and that is burning out of control but not it why would people burn the forest to show their support for president bazza not of what's the connection there . so this is a question well bozo not to. promise and he's campaigning. that far no call farmers and the wolves likud explored amazon. has said that we have too many areas for restoration we have too many
7:55 pm
protected areas we have too many indigenous territory so he said that brazil would it's more of these areas so this so these farmers they support both are now in this way they tried to communicate stands ok the tables are not who we are here we're waiting for you 2 to 3 years to exploit this area here in brazil in amazonas all this protected area and burn the forest will be. poured it's very strange and i'm so sorry to it it's hard to explain the connection but you know we different situation and not we're going to this here we can see it of a diff a difficult situation because clearing the forests as a means of using that land from other sources not different is in barro in brazil thank you very much for that update from there and now let's get on the perspective
7:56 pm
on this story i'm joined by yon burna he's a professor at the university of bonn in germany specializing in forest conversation can go on the conservation and the problems of deforestation welcome professor on the amazon produces 20 percent of the was oxygen as we mentioned so all this fire is threatening our oxygen supply you know the fires are not threatening oxygen supply they off course affecting the global climate in the long term and that's why we're concerned about them so what's the best way to fight fires off this number and size. well brazil has shown actually in the past couple of 1015 years that it's possible to make a large scale effort to reduce deforestation rates in the amazon and it's a pity to see that many of these efforts no seem to basically be weakened by what the new government is planning to do and has started doing so you seem to see
7:57 pm
there's a direct link between the policies of the government and the fires that are raging in the country in the amazon forest right now yes we and many colleagues in the world have been working to evaluate different measures of the brazilian government since 2004 that were aimed at reducing the frustration the amazon and it was possible to show very rigorously that these measures have been effective and they are of course only affected if the government transmits the will to conserve off and stick to its own legal regulations and if the government starts basically to. seed different ideas of how these policies could change even without changing them it has an effect on the behavior of people on the ground so not 650000 hectares a forest has already been destroyed is this kind of damage can it ever again this loss ever be replaced what's difficult to replace even

overcomes his or her shame and gets the adequate treatment. by the way many famous people are set to have suffered from o.c.d. like charles dolphin or martin luther what they have in common repetitive rituals they are fully aware of but they can't stop. just one last check to see if the door is locked or the stove is off lots of people do this but for about 2000000 people in germany these habits are compulsion and sufferers feel enormous pressure to perform certain behaviors again and again. people with obsessive compulsive disorder wash their hands repeatedly for extended periods of time or check or clean things over and over again for hours on end until they're completely exhausted their compulsion to dominate their lives and. he was dr shaw he's the head of the department of psychiatry of the prospect league here and thanks for having me
8:21 pm
today and i think everybody knows the situation that he has to double check if the door is shut or a thing of that's turned off and that but when and does obsessive compulsive behaviors and that's absolutely right most. well know these kind of behavior and that question is rather simple to be answered because the disorder starts when the subject is suffering and as an idea able to. perform the daily life it typically is any more then what the typical symptoms we have that kind of says if ect routines that have been have to be performed like checking if the door is locked if the still is turned off or washing cleaning bringing things in a certain kind of or down and we have. obsessive thoughts coming into my mind. people are fighting against the thoughts because they are of.
8:22 pm
sexual or any kind of disgusting nature and told us a sense of compulsive behavior occur with some reason for and actually we don't know the full reason of course there are genetic compounds. as a kind of risk factor us it's not a genetic disorder at all childhood plays a role in how what does we learn about cleaning about hygiene but there remains a big question mark about the real the. real reasons and how it comes to obsessive compulsive disorder or higher risk for o.c.d. because i'm used. to store of the office i would say so because it's rather normal behavior and in a way it makes sense to double check things because we're wired lot of trouble and problems and that's typical of most. men and women know such kind of
8:23 pm
behavior as their daily routines you order it told us there that there are different kinds of impulses options sessions and actions and criticism to get what with. the difference between the impulses and the actions for instance impulses of kind of thoughts in the people fear that they might do something be chorus of a lot of control over their self for example jumping out of the window this has nothing to do with suicide ideas it's just the fear to lose control or to take a now i haven't heard someone someone laughter typically this never happens but it's very painful to have these impulses but there's no higher risk that somebody can absolutely not and this should not be mixed up with suicide risk because these people don't want to die ok and in total friends and family react to patients with
8:24 pm
o.c.d. . normally if they're not informed about this disease or they just think come on this is a racial it's a racial or to wash 20 times in our your hands or to clean up everything or to check the door 30 times in there they say stop it don't do it this is not helpful this does not help the people so we need to integrate the relatives and the friends into the psychotherapy to inform them that it is a disorder and it does not help to just say stop so it really affects both the patient and that of absolutely a brings problems into interpersonal relationship and that's typical reason why people seek help and come to us because there's a lot of shame. there so she was upset of compulsive disorder that's hinders the patients from going to a doctor or to a therapist there's
8:25 pm
a lot of shame and a lot of good for the patients who suffer from o.c.d. just check out on extreme or. sometimes i wash my hands 20 times in an hour. i use up a bar of soap within 5 days so. there was a time it's now been a year already when it was so bad that my skin was very badly affected by it it got totally red roar and dry. talking afterwards it got so bad that i had to go to the dermatologist. my dermatologist said it looked like 2nd degree burns and he wanted to send me to the hospital. she. gets into the shower again although she already washed yourself thoroughly just 2 hours ago. she can't do anything about her compulsion the washing ritual goes according to strict rules 1st she blathers herself up from head to toe then she cleans the water faucet
8:26 pm
and finally she cleans the entire shower stall. song as obsessive compulsion is like a prison i'm knocked in and i don't have the key i can't free myself from this prison line sometimes regain ascribes her apartment told late at night the compulsion dominates her life a job is out of the question now she lives on welfare. what can someone with o.c.d. do to say stop washing their hands professor short his colleagues are trying out what's called exposure therapy. and slicker than i expected you. and dirty are ok. i'm a bit afraid of what's in there. ok ok so now you're going to open it. to. the lady with the whole surface of your hand ok so now what you want to talk about. you know i am not allowed to wash my hands for 3 hours.
8:27 pm
what would actually happen if the patient wouldn't wash his hands if that would be a compendium to buy a therapeutic in before and after that it could be helpful because the patient realizes that the in attention decreases even though he does not wash his or her hands so. most patients yes not in all of whom we see it's that it's more prevalent in younger people around the age of 20 and 30 and in the older people around the age of 60 we have less frequently and who should seek professional help everyone who is suffering from his calm politicians are obsessions. or isn't able to cope with daily life except it. and it's psychotherapy in military setting always the right choice or that's
8:28 pm
a treatment of the 1st line treatment that's a treatment of choice not pills not medication it's psychotherapy and outpatient treatment however sometimes the disease is that awful that patients on a long able to go to a psychotherapist for example if they need to control the dog for let's say 5 hours before they can leave the apartment they have to come to in a psychiatric hospital ok so you have to meet the patients yes interest doc therapy there is a long term setting in the clinic it should only be as long as the patient is becomes able to go to an ambulatory ok and then you continue the ambulatory psychotherapists treatment of choice can you see they become really dangerous the patients for instance kill themselves and these impulsive thoughts i could jump out of the window i could take a knife this never happens and this should not be mixed up with suicidal ideas
8:29 pm
because these patients they don't want to die they want to live out of it might become dangerous for example for the hands to washing 50 times a day of the hands they have. courses skin suffering if we widen our scope a little bit and look into other countries of the world. distributed to other countries we have it in every region of the world be corsets and natural behavior to control things which might be helpful if it's when an anomaly. and the prevalence is between one and 3 percent of the population in all countries we have a sob. in taiwan and hong kong as i saw the figures and prevalent in canada and in germany. 3 percent is quite frequent yes that's quite forgiven for a disease. right so if you live in another country and you don't have access to
8:30 pm
psychotherapy you treat o.c.d. then yes psychotherapy is a treatment of choice and medication isn't so that's not a good alternative medication without psychotherapy does not help much however they are quite good help programs in the internet so if you go to the head and look for o.c.d. and sell palp you might find helpful programs and this is safe for those self-help programs yeah of course there's a lot of all i checked to look quite go to and use the riots strategies about there might be some black sheep it's ok here we go to view christian from el salvador 1st ones to know where this is also an indication for other psychological illness oh yes that might be a very have a lot of co-morbidity as we call it that means that. together within our psychiatric disorder fall example schizophrenia our or addiction does all that and
8:31 pm
so every terrapins this ought to look carefully of theirs and 2nd as well thanks for answering all my questions and if you've got any questions please write me an email. on an upcoming show we'll be talking about alcohol it's consumed all over the world mainly in the form of wine and beer what effect does it have on the body sending your questions to you in good shape or detail you just can't just write out the whole in the subject line looking forward to hearing from you. her knee is a very common especially among men they become visible when you lift something heavy or when you cough and then that's typical peters and then it's high time to see you doctor. i lump bolch all swelling in the abdomen or growing area maybe. this condition mostly affects men.

. abdominal surgeon. sees thousands of hernias every year. means there's a hole in the abdominal wall it won't close on its own so surgery is the only way to repair it so the hernia can heal permanently. now that he's retired has finally decided to have the lump checked out. using ultrasound his doctor is able to see that the hernia has reached a critical stage. this is a large inguinal hernia there's a large hernia all sac in the scrotum containing intestinal loops several of them including a cone on if that gets stuck it will need to be operated on immediately to save the intestine and free it so the find. a so-called strangulated hernia is the most
8:34 pm
dangerous kind the hind the abdominal muscles the sensitive inner organs in a hernia the connective tissue weakens and ted's tissue slips through and forms a bulge if a stretch of intestine gets trapped it could be fatal if blood flow to the tissue is cut off. most hernia operations a minimally invasive because john karr has already suffered a heart attack and takes blood thinners that's why he recommends open surgery to reduce the risk of post-operative bleeding although he straightened of general anesthesia. to go ahead with your permission. the surgeon makes a minor incision and pushes the lump back into the abdominal cavity. then he inserts a mesh with an opening for this but matic cord to close up the hernia. dr baggage
8:35 pm
checks. hernia he's otherwise young and her. he said the minimally invasive surgery is unlikely to pose any major risks therefore tell you that the advantage of this method is that you can assess the state of the interior of the abdomen so the surgical trauma and therefore the pain that might arise after the operation is pretty small because it during the operation under general anesthesia 3 small incisions are made in oddly hands abdominal wall and the surgical instruments are inserted the hernia is visible on the monitor here too and mesh is used it's pushed into the abdominal cavity fire and discos and closes up a hernia from the inside. surgery has also gone smoothly. of course i was very relieved to wake up again. city to say or fear that i had before has vanished i'm glad i've got out of the way
8:36 pm
. pilot has a little bit of pain for a few months i thought that it took a while before i could feel confident about my body again. now he can finally go kitesurfing again everything has healed nicely and he's back in the water. with our leeward hardly smell i'm talking about mouth odor not the one when you eat raw onions or garlic i mean the one that doesn't go away what's it all about check this out. turn has an important appointment with his dentist this piece of equipment will show whether or not his hala ptosis has been cured. it's we can move we're taking america sample from the back of the mouth above the tongue and we'll have a look at the result of this spike. 4 weeks ago going to want to see his dentist having spent
8:37 pm
a year trying to cure his back breath. he also. what's with patients so he was very self-conscious about it. and the whole thing started when my wife had a word with me she said my breath and started to smell but it was a big surprise at 1st i was shocked i also deal with patients so it's really embarrassing because i'm sure i have a good dental hygiene you know i use an electric toothbrush and the last i clean my teeth after meals are. but i realised it wasn't enough because i know if i meet. the dentist uses this holly meter to measure the levels of salt 1st. breath. bacteria excrete sulfur compounds that cause the unpleasant smell. it can be a difficult subject to broach we ask members of the public if they tell someone about that bad breath. notice no no you can't do that you just have to ignore it.
8:38 pm
my math teacher has been bred but i don't tell him because i don't want to risk migrating. i wouldn't say anything because they usually are you know. they might worry that you think they're. trying to part of a new off the odor is caused by anaerobic bacteria. 95 percent of them sit in the space between the gum and the truth. and sometimes they're at the back of the tongue. for you can use a tongue cleaner to get rid of them. and between the teeth it's very important to use an intraday into a brush that's the right size that so you can get the bacteria under control the odor comes from areas in the mouth that's hard to reach with a normal toothbrush even with the most directly knowing there are easy ways to gauge your own hygiene. you can floss between your teeth and smell it or stroke the back of your tongue and smell your finger breathing into
8:39 pm
a bag over your head. isn't very effective if you can't smell your own breath that well. has been using into dental brushes under a tongue cleaner. he managed to clear up his how to use x. it's just still here and that's a really fantastic result you're well within the normal range we're not seeing those big build ups of sulfur anymore because we've reduced the levels of oral bacteria it's flawless and this is. i'm so pleased thanks for the information i'd never have known. you'll be able to keep your wife again. this can affect anyone so it's good to be open and speak freely about the conditions it's certainly paid off for going into. one of the most dangerous any moves in the world is the most kito will dwight it transmits a lot of diseases some of them even fatal lucky me not here in germany.
8:40 pm
can still be very nasty especially if you scratch. they bug you even if you just want one it's already too late it chews swells and mosquito bites are often more than just annoying. in tropical countries many species of mosquitoes such as the asian tiger mosquitoes are vectors of disease that's long been known but now it is many people in germany are visiting their doctors for mosquito bites as the bites become severely inflamed. just only we see a lot of patients with mosquito bites they come in and we can send them home quickly. within 9 days we had 6 people with infected mosquito bites who all had to receive antibiotics mostly. koenig was bitten on the foot by a mosquito 3 weeks ago her leg swelled up severely when it got to the point where
8:41 pm
she could barely walk she sought medical help. i thought going to the doctor for a mosquito bite seemed pretty stupid i didn't want to go but i called when it got really swollen and they said i should come by. if an infected insect part turns red and gets his biggest a pall of your hand. if you have a fever and you're on shore then you should go to the doctor. and. bacteria can enter the bloodstream through the mosquito bite from there they spread throughout the body and multiply near the vessels that transport the tissue fluid from the leg toward the heart the bacteria clog the lymph vessels the fluid cannot get through the leg swells up and the infection spreads. and that's why you called spock prescribe 10 days worth of antibiotics for free. and now the swelling in her foot has gone down and whether the bacteria entered the
8:42 pm
womb through scratching or the mosquito transmitted them is unclear the mosquito saliva plays a big role in determining how irritating its bites are and it can vary widely. why there are more reactions in some years than in others likely depends on the composition of the saliva changing from year to year no one knows why it could be climate or weather changes. another guess many mosquito bites become infected if farmers use liquid manure on their fields the mosquitoes come into contact with the fecal matter and when they bite aggressive microbes enter the womb. that something new about god knows believes last year his hand swelled up so massively for 2 days after being bitten by a mosquito that it didn't look like his own hand anymore. if i had such a tiger. and i couldn't move it anymore not even my fingers then i went to the
8:43 pm
hospital when the pain was excruciating so i thought my heart would explode to monaghan plotzed. apart from that a red line formed an inflammatory reaction that indicated blood poisoning. i was lying in bed with a huge i.v. containing antibiotics. he was treated in the hospital for 3 days if he had waited just 24 hours before going to the doctor it would have been too late. experts say to treat any mosquito bite don't scratch it but cool it. is a good idea it lessens the blood flow naturally and also reduces the chance of the germs being able to spread quickly and it helps to stop the. cortisone can help if it gets worse you can also take anti histamine tablets if the bite stays
8:44 pm
swollen and you get a fever then show your mosquito bite to the doctor. facebook page. and that's.

look at what's behind the record number of flies in the amazon and get the latest from brazil. was coming up security is ramp top in the southern france city of gadgets as opposed to host the g. 7 summit this year leaders will focus on the fight against inequality. and a show of hands in hong kong demonstrators form a human chain across to take treat to press home the demands for more democracy. hello and welcome i'm a touchy international concern is growing over the record number of wildfires in the amazon and visit a french president in modern mccrone has courted an international crisis. treating a house is burning literally the amazon rain forest the lungs which produce 20
8:50 pm
percent of the planet's oxygen on fire the business president. has slammed the remarks a sensation as saying the crew is trying to make a fuss the political gains in what he calls an intel and not have a busy bus not know it's a says his country last resources to fight the fire has looked controversially he's accuse environmental groups of starting the fires in a bid to embarrass his government the effect meanwhile of the blazes is being fed to foggy on the areas on fire. the amazon a blaze thousands of hectares disappearing every day this map shows the extent nearly 40000 individual fires burning right now and this nasa satellite imagery so smoke visible from space. there are competing explanations for why this is happening. brazil's president is defiant he blames foreign backed environmental
8:51 pm
groups for setting the blazes to discredit him. n.g.o.s have lost money without money from norway and germany they're without jobs so what do they do they try to bring me down. what about them. there are strict laws in place but critics say president balsa narrow has failed to enforce them and encourage bloggers and ranchers to claim the amazon basin as their own problem if you will then the problem is that the government abandoned policies abandoned know how and has an attitude of disgust towards environmental scientists and activists that least. the impact is felt most immediately by indigenous people who have made the rainforest their home for centuries. with each passing day we see the destruction advance deforestation and logging. was
8:52 pm
sent because the forest dies a bit and at every moment we feel the climate changing. the world needs the forests we need it and our children need it. but also narrow made developing the amazon into a campaign promise one he's not likely to give up easily. joined by journalist nadia pontus and in southeastern brazil welcome non-defensive are going to bring us up to date as to what's the latest situation where the fire is burning in the amazon forest hello good morning from brazil the situation here it's dramatic numbers and for a reason the last day and it's out of it's right when bulls are not who says he has no ways to combat this fire because the proportion is really really big we haven't seen this in brazil for the last 20 years or
8:53 pm
so and it is expected it will heat a record year in 2000 i. did this situation and why have these fires reached such extreme levels and in your assessment who's to blame. well x. says that the fire is is tied to it by humans so 9090 percent of the cases this happened in the amazon and the local paper has recently published a story about the day of fire so this means that. the farmers the local farmers in the amazonas estate would demonstrate the support. and i do to the president sold they will have been. in the region and we have seen this from the satellite images so all we say howard from the our
8:54 pm
history we can say that it fires here at my human eye human causes and now it's at it's and dry season so in brazil we have no rain in the amazon region and to tober all this all this. is this combination. mad for the forest and for the and for the planets around it and that area is running out of control but not it why would people burn the forest to show their support for president was a not a what's the connection there. so this is a question well bozo not to. promise and he's counting. that the far no call farmers and. likud explored on man who has said that we have too many areas for
8:55 pm
restoration we have too many protected areas we have too many indigenous territory so he said that brazil would it's more of these areas so these so these farmers they support both are now in this way they're trying to communicate stands ok we're here we're waiting for you 2 to 3 years to exploit this area here in brazil in amazonas all this protected area and burn the forest will be. poured it's very strange and i'm so sorry too it's hard to explain this connection but you know we have a difficult situation and not we're going to stay here because it's of a diff a difficult situation because killing the farmers as a means of using that land from other sources not their fault is in barro in brazil
8:56 pm
thank you very much for that update from there and now let's get on the perspective on this story i'm joined by a yard burner he's a professor at the university of vaughan in germany specializing in forest conversation can go on the conservation and the problems of deforestation but the professor on the allison produces 20 percent of the was oxygen as we mentioned so all this fire is threatening our oxygen supply you know the fires are not threatening oxygen supply they off course affecting the global climate in the long term and that's why we're concerned about them so what's the best way to fight fires off this number and size. well brazil has shown actually in the past couple of 1015 years that it's possible to make a large scale effort to reduce deforestation rates in the amazon and it's a pity to see that many of these efforts no seem to basically be reconned by what
8:57 pm
the new government is planning to do and have started doing so you seem to see there's a direct link between the policies of the government and the fires that are raging in the country in the amazon forest right now yes we and many colleagues in the world have been working to evaluate different measures of the brazilian government since 2004 that were aimed at reducing the forestation the amazon and it was possible to show very rigorously that these measures have been effective and they are of course only effective if the government transmits the will to conserve and stick to its own legal regulations and if the government starts basically to. seed different ideas of how these policies could change even without changing them it has an effect on the behavior of people on the ground so little 650000 hectares of forest has already been destroyed is this kind of damage can it ever again this
8:58 pm
loss ever be replaced what's difficult to replace even a long term is the biodiversity it has been lost but forestry growth and they can regrow fast so the. carbon dioxide that has been released into the atmosphere in these different station processes can be recaptured by recross but for the 1st regenerate to its original state that takes many many years professor young burner from the university of bonn thank you very much for sharing your expertise at that thank you. france's president a man in the coal wants to put the amazon fires on the agenda at the g. 7 summit that starts tomorrow and be at its he hosts talks with the leaders of the world's major economies on a wide range of issues from tensions over iran to the bleak outlook of the world economy but the main theme of this is meeting is the fight against inequality it's all it's forms including in the g 7 nations own backyards. in developed

a geisha one of the key 5 was that the protesters want is an independent investigation into police conduct so they say that police have become increasingly violent in the handling of praise but one thing in particular the one young woman who is i believe that is the confrontation with police that what we're seeing here is a lot of people putting i patches i was in solidarity with the women started to fight with these protests that are expecting a lot more to come out of a home from a chorus of. charlatans and been in the midst of the protests in hong kong thank you very much for that live update. jobs have been given more protection in a bid to horse the dramatic population decline the convention on the international trade in endangered species all societies has agreed to regulate the buying and selling of giraffes and their body parts the number of africa's genki screeches has

lifetime of the oldest giraffes here in somebody's national reserve 7 out of 10 of the species has disappeared poaching is one of the main culprits giraffes are often killed to eat when other food sources are running low but the somebody who tried who live near the park stopped such poaching long ago thanks partly to education work by john's colleagues tribal elders have noticed the change in stocks to. use to be many giraffes here now there are far fewer of them. without giraffes there would be fewer tourists and less income for the somebody who sell souvenirs. but tourism comes in different forms it also includes trophy hunting which is legal in southern african countries like south africa namibia and zambia. this american woman for example shot a rare giraffe in south africa she defended her action by saying her hunting fee

would help maintain giraffe stocks that's a view shared by many southern african governments john dockets he says that's unacceptable and he's not alone the southern african development community now wants trophy hunters to prove that their hunting went in danger animal stocks i'm personally very pleased opinion was divided but i'm delighted that site has come to what i think is a very sensible decision that will help african countries face with declining drop operations to save them for all of us for the future. the hope is that such measures will prevent giraffes from experiencing the fate of so many species that face possible extinction. you're watching the news coming to your life from berlin she has a recap of the top story that you're following field international concern is growing of the record number of wildfires raging out of control in dozens amazon rain forest but the country's president about sonata has condemned what the chords

9:20 pm
the un tried to get refugees to go back under every pet creation deal between bangladesh and the me and my government that i think as fair as a perhaps best articulated in what one of them said to the d.w. teen in cox's bizarre if they force us to go we will die he has more on what did up to supporters found in the refugee camps in cox is bizarre. i don't know. as a rumor spread that they would be forced to return to yemen ma attention is because kaya mongering to refugees in bangladesh however am i one better than the fathers take their daughter's clothes off. and then rate them in front of their parents the whole of right my one daughter there where did. this woman is referring to the brutal crackdown by myanmar's military 2 years ago hundreds of thousands of ring jeff let's attack monday. this week almost $2500.00 of them when formed at their

names were on a list of refugees selected for repatch relation to me and mom an additional government officials drew up the list but it was up to the un to break the news to the refugees. mohammed it came as a shock you look. at how our lives and belongings will be in danger over there and our children and wives won't be safe if they force us to go we will die. out looking girl one of several ethnic minorities indian mall but the government there does not recognize the most full citizens they have faced decades of discrimination and times violent repression and not allowed to travel freely the lack of access to basic services and ma has promised to provide them with housing and id cards but no one to believe you or to his assurances. many was so frightened
9:22 pm
that they spent the night before the repatriation with their friends when the mountain surrounding the camps all mama said wandered around all night too terrified to return to this. day go i heard they would take us today i got so scared i was afraid they might force us. i have promised they won't force anyone to leave. and the u.n. insists repatriation must be called and disobeyed me to determine whether they want to return on this 1st day she ation single with greta as long as months government cannot prevent root month full rights in the region it's unlikely any of them who change their mind. did have a correspondent now because there's one of the altos of that reporter joins us now from bangladesh now me good to have you with us now based on the conversations that you've had with the refugees and. what other tell you what conditions need to be in
9:23 pm
pleas for them to feel safe to go back to me and ma. all their very clear that they want full citizenship rights they want to be recognised as they want them back they want their property back and they want instant us in the service to go in to guarantee that these acts will then make clear that if this is an act of phil's thank you happy to go back now to send back a 200 refugees to me under the terms of it but it has with me and mom is that a sense that. keeping up its end of the body well that's incredibly difficult to say because the animal isn't letting international independent observers into the country and on boxing journalists interestingly at the press one point yesterday i put that question to the 1st layoff to direct me what guarantees do you have that the they can get right will be guaranteed and they refuse to on think that it's time i think that in it self by going on. the remainder if it is
9:24 pm
not going back to me means that continue to stay on in bang others which have to accommodate 700000 refugees since 27000 and that has led to a doubling almost of the refugee population in the country is bangladesh being able to call. well yes indeed this is the biggest refugee camp in the what i need to be made of the situation has improved refugees do have basic basic health habits basic education and so brave by conditions die a lot of people don't have anything to do that's a lot of fear that their trucks tracing might lead to and might you know that young people just having too much time on their hands this concern that they might end up becoming radicalized even if they find about but it may happen and also one key white me right before the aid workers believe in the often new conditions in the company actually quite insecure we've heard of this abductions of militant groups
9:25 pm
and gangs in the camps so conditions you know how to improve but it's still quite dangerous but as a lot of refugees tell us they love to stay here than have to go home at this point i just have to ask about the aid agencies that are operating in these camps do they think that they're getting enough support to be able to support. and that is a very big question as i said conditions of beck so so if the pictures that we're sending out to the wells on to add ons are bad and it was as we saw 2 years ago so there is a real concern and that the conditions that have improved that they won't be able to be upheld next if there's a lot of money that's going into this crisis that's that aid agencies pay you liz a concern that they won't get an actual money if they have in the post and that they see might that the conditions in the crab might actually deteriorate not eco not speaking to us from buying others thank you very much for that.

this woman behind me but no it's just. me just stopped strangled to death allegedly by her brother trios back a so-called honor killing he confessed to. you know as the brother was seen he defeated not guilty in court on these brothers are now on trial for him 2016 on wednesday their parents made a plea to the court asking for their daughter. michelle stockwell has been following the story and she joins me still more in the studio nominal welcome. washi and why was she so controversial well as you said brash she was talking to us 1st social media star the media often referred to her as the can cardassian of pakistan but that was a bit of
9:27 pm
a simplistic comparison she wasn't born with a silver spoon she came from a rural working class background she was a girl with a dream to be on t.v. or to be a celebrity and she made that happen herself by building a brand for herself online and she posted videos like the ones we're going to show you right now they were of her being sexy of her being cheeky of her being sarcastic behavior that is very provocative scantily clad and thousands were inspired by her as an iconoclast but she also had people who love to hate her and she was viciously gone after on line with threats threats of violence death threats but the formula worked and by the year 2015 she was among the 10 most googled people in pakistan not you describe a very conservative society because i know that you've lived and worked in pakistan yourself how did that conservatism manifest itself on the streets and barkus on in
9:28 pm
people's daily lives what did you see right you know as a foreigner expectations were different for me but i followed the lead of the women around me so when i went out to the mall or i went out to the cricket ground to go exercise i wore a shawl where commutes that is a trousers and shirts that were uncovered from here down to my ankles my rear end is covered i might wear a scarf or added my. honesty. and what she is wearing and the way she looks on the wall behind us here that is that is bold that is even rebellious and she is just attracted controversy she was not the typical woman in pakistan who who is meant to buy her outward appearance and comportment represent the family honor and this controversy is really reach a future picture around her when she posted that midges we're going to show next this is in the summer of 2016 where she had a meeting with an islamic cleric here you can see she's got it she's various patches got a naughty book on her face this was during ramadan daytime they consume soda
9:29 pm
together she later said so as this point people wanted to know who is this woman what is she doing and the media really started investigating her background they went to her hometown and so the communal disapproval around her behavior really that weight started falling on her and her family and 18 days after her name was made public she was dead her brother confessed to killing her and in honor killing all the way that the court overproduce did 3 brothers i believe for her mother what's happening with the trial in this case right well 1st it's really important to know that after her murder there was huge public outrage over this case and in the months after lawmakers passed anti honor killing legislation meant to curb this practice it allowed course to authorize life imprisonment for people who committed honor killings now this meant to close a loophole that in the past had allowed the families of victims to forgive the
9:30 pm
murderer usually because that person was part of their family and was needed not punishment to someone and so in this case though on wednesday the parents went to the court they said we want to give our sons we want them to be set free because this this law was passed after our daughter's murder so please let our sons go the court however did not agree and they did not grant this request for pardon and that's fair enough for us at the time and thanks very much for coming into the studio and breaking that down for us. and there got other stories from the region and this episode on our website www dot com forward slash isha we leave you now with pictures from hong kong pro-democracy protesters forming a human chain they've drawn inspiration from another pro-democracy protests from 30 years ago. and estimated. that films and. across the country to protest against.

9:34 pm
hong kong in a show of solidarity with anti-government protesters. yes i was i saw that you believe that most of the people in the accounting industry have been silent and quiet as we need to get the number right as an accountant but today we can't stand by and watch anymore as we've been waiting for the government's response for the past 2 months. the series of demonstrations began in protest against a draft law that would have made it easier to extradite suspected criminals to the chinese mainland the autonomy's region's head of government has said the bill is now dead but the marches have continued with the protesters demanding its formal withdrawal the accountants say they have good reason to join the demonstrations the account is one of the profession which would be very much affected by the bill if it were passed so i do think the profession as a whole need to come out and express their concerns and grievances officially though the major accounting firms that employ them continue to toe the line with
9:35 pm
the chinese government in beijing in interviews with state television companies have distanced themselves from the protests woman's you know song we know that hong kong is an inalienable part of china no one can ignore that fact eli has always supported the one country 2 system approaches as well as hong kong's constitution says we are against any type of illegal action as well as any form of violence from the demonstrators are now also demanding an independent investigation of police deployment in earlier protests. earlier today i caught up with assange line he's head of program economic research at the merrick's neck cutter institute for china studies here in berlin and he's just returned from hong kong to brief german media about the economic fallout from the unrest there i asked him if hong kong is running the risk of losing its appeal to international
9:36 pm
investors. hong kong as a global financial center has already taken damage in this in particular is not so much from the protests itself but from china's reaction to the protests the political pressure that was put on companies such as cathay pacific are part of the political influencing of companies and as a global financial center it is essential to remain or have the free capital controls obviously but also have a functioning rule of law in this interference in influencing political influencing of companies is eroding some of the essential institutional foundations necessary to have a global financial center but is this part of china's strategy is that it is interest to make hong kong less appealing it should not be in its economic interest it is vital for hong kong to operate as a gateway to global financial markets rest of china has strict capital controls in place and as chinese companies are increasingly internationally active it is vital
9:37 pm
to have a functioning international global financial place nevertheless as you mentioned china is putting pressure on business also international business and some have caved in already what exactly is beijing willing to do to companies that are not complying other really willing to cut ties with even big players or individual companies are not in a good position to react much to chinese demands to counter chinese demands most of the companies have economic interests in china in the companies will be very cautious not to threaten their businesses in china itself and of course a lot of german companies are also operating in china i think the number something like 6 or 700 different companies there you've just returned from hong kong what would be your advise what do they have to prepare for. they will need to prepare that hong kong. economic autonomy is increasingly being eroded and the it
9:38 pm
will be a special status that hong kong has also for global or international companies is is changing in a manner that they are becoming or hong kong is becoming increasingly like just any other chinese city but of course hong kong so far has this special status and this one country 2 systems status is due to end in 2047 that's still some time beijing speeding things up i think the latest developments are certainly efforts to accelerate this process but it should also be clear that one country 2 systems was never a status quo it was a fluid process and china has over the past years are very trying to influence and to apply its own interests in hong kong i think this is something that now is a reality many are just waking up to the next segment thank you so much free time. the forest fires in brazil could also set of a trade agreement between the e.u.
9:39 pm
and the more course or countries ablaze ireland says it will block the deal unless brazil takes action to protect the amazon rain forest irish prime minister carr says there would be quote no way that ireland will vote for the e.u. no causal free trade agreement if brazil does not on or its environmental commitments. on its own market reaction there from our financial market correspondent in frankfurt i lent threatening there the. trade deal what is at stake. well what's at stake is the largest common market the largest free trade zone of this world combining or bringing together $780000000.00 citizens or consumers and the 2 sides combined americas soar in latin america and the your european union have
9:40 pm
a combined g.d.p. of around about 18 trillion euros but that's only the numbers of course the political importance of this deal is much higher in times where america plays america 1st the medical soar and e.u. deal sort of showed that a multilateral approach that has in mind the benefit of all sides is feasible another topic which of course affects a lot of sides not only brazil is the wildfires in the amazon in the rain forest their president back home or who's hosting the g. 7 summit is convinced that this affects all of us its affects with the world climate and of course our economies and that's why the world's leading industrial nations of the g 7 should talk about them and deal with them and tackle them they have a lot to talk about i believe because another important topic at the g.
9:41 pm
7 is the u.s. china trade war and there has been a new development. yes this afternoon we got flash news reports out from china that it's planning retaliation against the united states in form of new tariffs on $5000.00 more you as products worth $75000000000.00 u.s. dollars this cause the german share index stacks here to plunge from the positive side into negative territory and of course it sort of reminded everyone that the 2 biggest players coming to the g. 7 summit r g g g g g m ping and donald trump and that trade topic will be the most important one i'm afraid you're right there god was in the reporting for us from frankfurt thank you so much. less staying here in europe the unusually dry weather has hit pharmacy hot in spain italy poland and the baltic states the corn harvest it used to feed livestock was worst affected pharmacist beginning to adapt
9:42 pm
to their methods that after 2 summers marked by drought. on warm days when fried lakes gives his cattle a cooling shower he knows that if the cows get too hot they produce less milt he's also worried about being able to feed his entire herd this year's harvest is so meager that friedrichs will have to sell some of his 300 cows. but. i have to find a short term solution which means 30 to 40 animals and i have to do something about the feed situation it's the only way to react quickly and. friedrichs is expecting a disappointing harvest from the ground just bone dry and there's been little rain since he's so the fields. the corn stalks are not as tall as in previous years but what matters most is the cob which in some cases hasn't grown at all if there is one it's very small. a whole new approach to tackling drought is to treat the corn
9:43 pm
grain before sowing and to arm it against a lack of precipitation with a bluish layer that binds the moisture to the seed. over time the protective layer then biodegrades in the soil without leaving any residue the coated seed is new to the market organic farmer close him of a house has been testing it for the past 3 years and this satisfied with this year's corn harvest. you do you like this sooner they start growing the better the root development they grow really deep and that ensures that the plant doesn't travel up when there's a temporary drought they can survive longer. tautness on everything and go ahead he makes things the coated seeds could boost his yield by at least 5 percent enough to feed all of his 100 cattle you definitely buy the more expensive seeds in the future. this is

of a warm welcome to you i'm on the thought she international concern is growing over the record number of wildfires in the i. and visit the french president in modern mccrone has scored it an international crisis treating our house is burning literally the amazon rain forest the lungs a rich produce 20 percent of our planet's oxygen are on fire but this is president of both the not who has slammed the remarks the sensationalist saying mccraw is trying to make personal political gains in what he calls an internal matter for visit a well it's not also says his country lacks of resources to fight the fire as well controversially he's accused environmental groups of starting the fires in a bid to embarrass his government the effect of the blazes meanwhile is being felt far beyond the areas on fire. the amazon a blaze thousands of hectares disappearing every day this map shows the extent
9:51 pm
nearly 40000 individual fires burning right now there are competing explanations for why this is happening. brazil's president is defiant he blames foreign backed environmental groups for setting the blazes to discredit him. n.g.o.s have lost money without money from norway and germany they're without jobs so what do they do they try to bring me down. what about them. there are strict laws in place but critics say president also narrow has failed to enforce them and encourage bloggers and ranchers to claim the amazon basin as their own problem if you will then the problem is that the government abandoned policies abandoned know how and has an attitude of disgust toward environmental scientists and activists that least of. the impact is felt most immediately by indigenous people who have made the rainforest their home for centuries.
9:52 pm
with each passing day we see the destruction and runs deforestation and logging. was sent because the forest dies a bit and at every moment we feel the climate changing. the world needs to fall as we need it and our children need it. but also narrow made developing the amazon into a campaign promise one he's not likely to give up easily. abound joined by journalist nadia pontus and bowed to in southeastern brazil welcome non-defensive or can you bring us up to date as to what's the latest situation with the fires burning in the amazon forest oh good morning from brazil the situation here it's dramatic the numbers of. the last days and it's out of onshore it's right when both or neither says he has no way to
9:53 pm
combat this fire because the proportion is really really big we haven't seen this in brazil for the last 20 years or so and it is expected it will heat a record year in 2019 is very dramatic this situation and why are these fires reach such extreme levels and in your assessment who's to blame. well x. says that the fire is is tied to it by humans so 9090 percent of the cases that it's happened in the amazon and the local paper has recently published a story about the day of fire so this means that. the farmers the local farmers in the amazonas estate would demonstrate the support.
9:54 pm
was a nod to the president so they won't start have been. in the region and we have seen this from the satellite images all here we say for our from the our history we can say that it fires here at my human eye human causes and now it's at it's and dry season so in brazil we have no rain in the amazon region and to tober all this all this. business combination. it's bad for the forests and for them for the planet and that area is burning out of control but not it why would people burn the forest to show their support for president was a not a what's the connection there. so this is a question well bozo not to. promise and he's counting. that
9:55 pm
far no call farmers and the woods likud explored on mammals and i don't have that we have too many areas really have for restoration we have too many protected areas we have too many indigenous territory so he said that brazil would it's more of these areas so this so these farmers they support both are now in this way they tried to communicate stands ok so neither we're here we're waiting for you 2 to 3 years to exploit this area here in brazil in amazonas all these protected area and burning forest will be. our support it's very strange and i'm so sorry too it's hard to explain the connection consists of a diff
9:56 pm
a difficult situation because clearing the forests as a means of using that land from other sources not different is in barro in brazil thank you very much for that update from there now let's get on the perspective on this story i'm joined by yon burner he's a professor at the university of bonn in germany specializing in forest conversation can convert a conservation and the problems of deforestation welcome professor on the amazon produces 20 percent of the was oxygen as we mentioned so all this fire is threatening our oxygen supply. you know the fires are not threatening oxygen supply but of course affecting the global climate in the long term and that's why we're concerned about them so what's the best way to fight fires off this number and size . well brazil has shown actually in the past couple of 1015 years that it's possible to make a large scale effort to reduce deforestation rates in the amazon and it's
9:57 pm
a pity to see that many of these efforts not seem to basically be weakened by the new government is planning to do and have started doing so you seem to see there's a direct link between the policies of the government and the fires that are raging in the country in the amazon forest right now yes we and many colleagues in the world have been working to evaluate different measures of the brazilian government since 2004 that were aimed at reducing the forestation the amazon and it was possible to show very rigorously that these measures have been effective and they are of course only effective if the government transmits the will to conserve and stick to its own legal regulations and if the government starts basically to. seed different ideas of how these policies could change even without changing them it has an effect on the behavior of people on the ground so not 650000 hectares of
9:58 pm
