also coming up by blacklisting flyways the u.s. risks getting left behind in the race to build the next generation of high speed internet networks and thanks to billions of dollars of stimulus and record low interest rates brazil avoids falling back into recession. and for school welcome to the program u.s. consumers are still buying but businesses have put their wallets away that's the mixed message coming from a new u.s. commerce department report on economic growth here's what stands out the u.s. economy grew at a pace of 2 percent in the 2nd quarter stronger than other top economies navigating the global slowdown but much lower than the 3 point one percent of growth from the 1st quarter now business investment also fell by 6 tenths of a percent the 1st contraction since 2016 and more evidence that the global slowdown
and uncertainty created by the trade war is biting into the economy however u.s. consumer spending grew by almost 5 per cent between the beginning of april and the end of june it is the fastest pace in almost 5 years now let's put these figures into perspective and who better to do that than our financial correspondent yes quarter on wall street yet amid recession fears and a nasty trade war that has been going on for over a year where is this massive sharp increase in consumer spending coming from. all the chatter on wall street on a possible cooling of the u.s. economy and all those tweets from u.s. president donald trump obviously have not reached the vast majority of u.s. consumers even if you look into details it's mostly discount chains doing good and
there is an interesting trend just recently here in the united states that the top earners on wall street that the super rich they actually start to spend a little less so maybe that is a sign that at least part of the country are where or are a bit skeptical skeptical if the economic growth that we see can still be continued and what we also shouldn't forget as those figures published for the 2nd quarter meaning ending june 30th sold the latest round of terrorists that the u.s. president was talking about in july are not actually part of this report that we've got here on thursday now speaking of the trade war there seems to be a new twist to it every day now china sounded hopeful in negotiations. well at least china was hinting that they will not start increasing
the terrorists coming this sunday both sides the u.s. and china have announced to increase tariffs earlier so now we will wait and see if donald trump will follow through and as planned to increase tariffs on this sunday market overall actually cheered that the twitter account of u.s. president donald trump was silent for 2 days and was into trading days here on wall street went up by almost 600 points and scored in new york thank you. u.s. prosecutors are investigating new instances of alleged technologies that buy chinese tech company huawei that's according to the wall street journal and the investigation would fit the narrative of president trump who claims that the country is safer without huawei the concern is focused on america's next generation of high speed internet networks the chinese tech giant is the leader in 5 g. and there's only a handful of turn of its. as mobile providers for
a pair to roll out 5 g. across the united states the u.s. government says it's protecting americans that's why it's keeping tight controls on which technology firms are involved in setting up the networks. the lucky trio deemed fit for the job as sweden's ericsson which announced earlier this year it plans to build what it calls a 5 g. factory in the u.s. finland's nakia which is already providing technology for networks in l.a. and new york city and samsung headquartered in 5 g. trailblazer south korea so why limit their options the u.s. government's bureau of economic and business affairs has been explaining it's very important that we have trust in those vendors for $500.00 technologies when indicator of trust that we're very concerned about is that a vendor not be under the control of a foreign government without appropriate judicial controls and it's not difficult
to know which foreign government he's specifically referring to you know with regard to china we know that their national intelligence law has that feature of them being able to mandate that vendors like our way in c.t.e. comply with mandates of their intelligence or security services without an independent judicial review which does us does cause us serious cause of concern. the u.s. has called on its allies to also bar the likes of huawei from involvement in their 5 g. networks is cause tensions with the likes of germany which is keeping its options open. and now to some of the other global business stories making the news is up or about to announce the launch of the i phone 11 while the company has scheduled an event on september 10th at in silicon valley have quarters but many believe we'll see the unveiling of a new generation i phone last month apple's growth from its digital services division was offsetting weak i phone so. yes the u.s.
treasury is conserving issuing so-called ultra long bonds with maturity dates between 50 and 100 years the treasury rejected the same idea about 2 years ago but demand for the long term bonds has since taken off driven by the growing instability and global markets. the next head of the european central bank christine lagarde has told the european parliament that she would stick with the current controversial expends unary monetary policy she said that as long as inflation in the eurozone was still low and growth stalling monetary policy had to be high in the commodity. critics call it a life or death rating program china's so-called social credit system which it's expanding this year to include companies both foreign and domestic they have to install surveillance cameras in their premises and share the data with the government they also be rated on their tax records and compliance
a european business group says firms are ill prepared. a traffic light with facial recognition cross on red face a public shaming and loose social credit points in some chinese cities it's already a reality even those who sort their trash incorrectly have to reckon with point deductions in some places as well as the penalties for low scores like losing the right to ride the fast train the point system is scheduled for full implementation across china by the end of 2020 and it will also affect businesses the new system will monitor whether business is it here to customs regulations pay taxes pay off loans or follow environmental regulations those who flout the rules face point deductions experts warn that firms with bad scores could be hit with sanctions or even lose their licenses. it's
a completely new system unique around the world everything relating to the company exists in a single system which produces a single score we fundamentally support this system it's a positive thing to clean up things in china but there are uncertainties and one of them is that it's difficult to see how the scores calculated here it's a system that still remains opaque to most businesses according to the german chamber of commerce 7 out of 10 german firms don't know what the new social credit system will mean for them. while brazil is fighting the devastating fires in the amazon at least the economy is providing surprisingly positive news brazil dodged falling back into recession a multibillion dollar stimulus plan and record low interest rates were able to kick start the economy in the 2nd quarter. volkswagen has 3 factories in brazil and is expanding them dramatically that means even more models rolling off assembly lines in 2020 g.m. and other carmakers are meanwhile making their own plans to increase investment in
brazil. more signs of an economic turnaround brazil's total output grew by 5 tenths of a percent in the 3rd quarter of 2018 then things went downhill now in the 2nd quarter of 2019 a reversal the economy grew by 0.4 percent. a looser monetary policy has also helped put wins in brazil sells 4 weeks ago the central bank cut the benchmark interest rate by a half point to 6 percent. right wing populist president also naro push through pension reform legislation saving the brazilian state roughly 250000000000 euros men must now wait until 65 to retire women until 62. analysts also believe paulson are could succeed in passing a tax reform measure. brazil's agricultural sector stands to gain from the trade agreement between the e.u. and the americas or trade block which brazil belongs but the deal has begun to look
more fragile as parts of the brazilian amazon burned through the e.u. now accuses the government of not doing enough against the fires and the wider deforestation of the region. and finally an english couple has unearthed thousands of ancient silver coins worth an estimated $6000000.00 the whole discovered with a metal detector includes rare pennies dating back to the era following the norman invasion of 16 and 6 the discovery was made in the southwest english county of somerset shook the coins be declared a national treasure the couple and the landowner would be entitled to an equal share of their present day about. bucking the. program thanks for watching.

3000. every journey begins with the 1st step and every language the 1st word i'm looking for nico peace in germany. why not born with him. in simple mind on your mobile and free. music to learn in course speak german made easy. welcome to our culture sweden has just announced the film it's putting forward to be nominated for best international feature at the oscars. they have an acting as
my guest in just a minute also coming up. thoughts on a grand scale cities made out of cardboard of a speciality of french artist bolivia growth. and a visit to burdens on the world in our alternative tourist guide planet. but we begin with the film and then we danced written and directed by swedish filmmaker 11. let's have a quick look at a scene from the movie. you know. i'm a doctor or it's a sudden often. through home runs on their rights and it's up. film is a story that takes place in the world of traditional georgian dance which is a big. culture. and
i'm joined by the writer director of the film lemon 1st of all welcome a new must be very excited about the oscar. thank you for having me and. i believe if we can go back to the oscars a next february we might get there but let's go back a few years because i believe this particular incident that inspired you to make this film tell us about. 201315 young kids in georgia decided to hold georgia's 1st pride parade. in tbilisi the capital and they were there was a counterattack organize a counter demonstration organized and they were attacked and the images you know are cable out on all the news channels and i saw it in sweden and i thought. i didn't like what i saw and i thought you know i should do something about that
about that topic so that was sort of like the inspiration for the film and then sort of give us a brief synopsis of what the film's about well basically i would say it's a coming of age story about a young downstair at the georgia national ensemble which is a very strict conservative. place. and the he you know falls in love with another guy and it's sort of becomes like a catalyst for him to i think in the end discover his own artistry i think you know it's a film about breaking the norm sort of you know ok i mean this seems to be george seems real still to the gay rights is this why you made the film in the georgian language yeah i mean i think the setting of the story certainly you know if it had been set in sweden it would have been the same story so you know there was something there that i wanted to. discover and sort of delve into.
georgia you know it's sort of complicated i think it's a very polarized country at the moment and it's very divided on one and you know you have the younger generation who's very you know. liberal and they really you know one something else and then on the other hand you have sort of a you know this is the lips or whatever you call them let's see another clip and this is where the head of the daunce academy appears to many sort of question the main actor the man. god to. be the one instance or. the dental shift. verity courtney's one. you know.
it's our history and. you can feel the tension. i believe you when you went to film in georgia you had sort of the authorities there another script will give them another impression of what the film was about well i mean we didn't you know actually give them a script but we you know we had to film in some place you know were a little take it to get into had they known exactly what the film was about so you know we had another official plot for the film that we were some sort of you know. in some places and in some places you know we could be totally open again it's about the division i was talking about it did you actually have problems if you have problems when you are that we did that we did fortunately we know.
some locations where we're supposed to film would you know just suddenly disappear and you know we kind of feel like as they were renovating and things like that so you know we never nobody officially told us you can't be here as you're making an algae bt film but. also just quickly want to mention benny andersson of abba was one of the producers but is he interested in georgia traditional. i think he probably is his you know he's a patron of the arts. i know that he actually 20 years ago did a george cd with polyphonic choir singing so he has a little is there but actually it's son who is the producer from from. well he's a good producer are a lot it's a little bit of a loss for the film you cross your fingers for the. thank you very much about so
great film you've got. the main role material used by french artist olivier. is cardboard boxes he makes what can only be described as. just cardboard bits of tape and he needs a lot of help so invested the people of la in france to construct buildings they know from their own city to create a temporary town down at the city's hall. on cardboard boxes tape and lots of helping hands are all that only means for his monumental art this is urban art kind of 14 cardboard buildings up to 27 meters tall and weighing one and a half tons each he's having a city built within a city on the waterfront and yeah friends his largest cardboard creation to date
does that make him nervous. we could build a lot more here without. the conditions actually make me more nervous than the construction itself. that was almost completely destroyed in the 2nd world war later french architect. designed housing for around 60000 people a masterpiece of urban planning. drew inspiration from the heritage site for his cardboard installation. fascinating work and a bit like being an architect. i have kids and as a boy i myself used to play with this. you can be anything you want to. a little kid a shit an airplane or whatever he said you know truth. these monumental cardboard
concepts would hardly be feasible without plenty of help from the people of new. buildings are made of some 3000 rolls of tape and 23000 boxes far fewer than bricks in the originals they take just one week of construction not much to build an entire city but it didn't acquire a few months of planning and precision drawings much like an architect with. the 46 year old artists favorite piece is the tower. itself. this is a replica inspired by st joseph's church in iowa if years now is to test the limits of the limits we're going to build it's about 26 meters 26 and a half of almost 27 meters high could one vents that make. the cardboard city stands for just 2 days. then the big demolition
operation begins the only piece not to be torn apart is this tower it's carefully hoisted up and carried away as requested by the people of. the demolition is also a part of only vehicles ted's concept the cardboard city is meant to be a femoral. only vehicles ted is already planning his next cardboard city. looks like a lot of planet but i live in a d w tourist guide for the city with a difference it features 50 bowl winners from around the world who've made their home here and their tips for what to see in this great city today we feature a real deep. arnold and his tip for tourists is difficult to see when you're
wandering around that's because it's old deep underground entry is more. has been exploring underground for 2 decades he co-founded the. association in 1907. around 8 meters below the surface of this new seam have spring he is clearing tens of thousands of cubic meters of rubble. this newly built entrance leads to an escape tunnel that was secretly done to help 17 east german citizens flee to west berlin he said the most being completed that was discovered before it could be used. klaus could pin from west berlin help dig the tunnel he wanted to smuggle his pregnant wife out of east berlin. this is the original
tunnel from that came 7971 it's the only one preserved in its original state from a time when berlin was divided. at street level stones marked the location of the tunnel running under where the berlin wall once stood when they hear the 1st moon friends acquaintances or relatives from west germany came to visit i never took them to the brandenburg gate instead i take them to banaue. that will go to platforms on all major crossings on the western side. they were so tall you could see a long way into east berlin. arnold says he will do everything to keep clearing out his start underground signs he recently discovered this well from 863 it used to belong to a brewery and still contains water. from
is good stuff berlin is brimming with 20th century history from the weimar republic the nazi period the post-war era the wall and then reunification we've experienced it all are lame is great for learning about german history. and not just about them but under the surface thanks to the old and he's taking. actually there are tunnels underneath where i'm standing now they were experimental tunnels built to test the bow the number brown trains originally and you can take a tour bus it thanks for watching.

baseball and even legislation about how leaving your opinion the prime minister. colleges to for a parliament using it in an unconstitutional and illegal manner to talk about a deal is actually code for saying let's stop practices what is happening is the normal cultural process we will be dictated to a moment of dictatorship and not the 10. also coming up a u.s. president drawn but once the military to expand beyond earth's gravity with a new space force a major step in that direction takes place today on the ground to be known as the united states space command for the sake of our security both here on earth and in the heavens above president trance direction we are working with congress as we speak to stand up a new branch of our armed forces. to our viewers on p.b.s. in the united states and all around the world welcome we begin today with the
battle over breaks it about to begin members of parliament are vowing to use next week to pass legislation to stop the country from crashing out of the european union on october 31st next week may be the only time they have yesterday prime minister boris johnson announce that he will suspend parliament for 5 weeks ending just before breaks it is scheduled to begin opposition in some conservative lawmakers call the move an abuse of power designed to prevent parliament from preventing a new deal breaks it next week m.p.'s could try to pass legislation requiring another break that extension there is also talk of a no confidence vote to bring down the prime minister and his government to allow a general election now none of this has a guaranteed outcome what is certain tonight is that online an online petition demanding that parliament debate its own suspension it now has more than 1500000 signatures enough requiring westminster to act protest against the suspension of
parliament they are planned for the weekend they are expected to be bigger than the spontaneous protests we saw yesterday. if you don't get boris johnson and the option to turn and more bizarre wild interventions to prevent home exercisers democratic wrongs it is really time that's my boss for a component so that we try to deny it but times i'm not there's just enough if m.p.'s take their responsibilities seriously and i'm members not just the most as well but he's got the time and for more on the legal aspects of this i'm joined tonight by dr joe well grover a senior lecturer in law at middlesex university is going to have you on the show let's let's talk about time is the clock working against parliament now just parliament have only next week to stop its own suspension. very
simply yes so let's start with the legal facts on the 31st of october 29th unless something else happens and that something else has to be legislation from the british parliament the u.k. will withdraw without a deal i see no deal breaks it on the 31st of october the parliament in order to avoid the situation has to legislate to do so but with this use of what is otherwise an ordinary power there's a correctness in saying it's an ordinary power but for using it to give 5 weeks of suspension 5 weeks for that debate 5 weeks without any means of creating that legislation and avoiding any kind of no deal break said we're facing to a very simple question of there is little or no time so there's some very important points to think about that for days that was just mentioned that the parliament will resume it'll come back from its summer holidays summer recess on the start of a temper and it will probably program on the 10th of september if those few days
are the very end of this parliamentary session any legislation which has not reached through both house of commons and house of lords and become law by that date is dead it will not continue into next session but now the import and you would use if i could you know what we're saying next week then parliament that's the only time you'd have to start the suspension but we're talking about a full week and correct me if i'm wrong but i mean the mother of all parliaments certainly can come up with legislation in a week to prevent its own suspension right. so we're going to be looking at what's called standing order $24.00 it's bringing emergency debates bring emergency legislation now the problem and this is a problem that we face in the u.k. for essentially almost 3 years is consensus you can absolutely bring legislation but only if you have a majority in both the house comments and that has
a lawyer it's now what opposition are going to be facing with for those few days is potentially filibustering and that's the house of commons and house of lords just to run down that clock so that legislation will die in the house of commons or the house of lords at the point that parliament is suspended there's such little time we might see one of my favorite times parliamentary ping-pong where piece of legislation is going to bat very quickly between the 2 houses but again that is very little parliamentary time to get such important legislation through well. if that is the case then. in your esteemed opinion is anything going to happen next we can stop this is mentioned or they can stop in new york city. so right now we're discussing the 3 difference legal ways in which the suspension the stopping of part of this stopping of debate can happen the 1st is the courts the
courts actually we have 3 challenges going on right now one of which is being spearheaded by jim miller but this is going to be a big constitutional question in and of itself because this power to prorogue is actually of royal power it's something that's exercised by the queen upon advice of the government upon advice of the prime minister we could have actually seen a constitutional crisis yesterday in the u.k. had the queen at refused the advice of governments now what gina miller and all the other litigants in these cases are going to try and do is challenge that advice say that that given by government to the queen was illegal that it was an unlawful use it was an abuse of a power of government we're also potentially and this is where the opposition are going we're going to try and see legislation legislation try to focus on of voiding and no deal breakers that now in order to avoid a no jail break that it's not enough to say we vote against
a new deal breaks that you have to vote for an alternative you need to legislation for an alternative and more than that and this is where time comes and again if you want either an agreement with the e.u. the e.u. with joint agreements you'll need a qualified majority of the european council to meet and i agree with you you need legislation saying we want it with all agreements at the european council and the last european council meeting before brags that it's on the 17th and 18th of october now part comes back on the 14th but it's going to spend the 1st 5 days talking about the queen's each year not necessarily about it with and this is i mean is that we don't it sounds very bleak dr grogan let me ask you about this suggestion that was made today there is what's known as a humble address to the queen where parliament can pass a motion asking the queen to stop this program this provision why not do that she gives the solver. this this comes back to the crew are
essential this is why we're talking about such fundamental questions of the u.k. constitution the queen is not political in fact the queen is an institution the monarchy is an institution in the u.k. has not been political in hundreds of years the last time the queen a queen it was queen victoria stepped in and changed the prime minister it caused a crisis now your rights absolutely correct in saying that the prime minister the government are appointed by the queen to not vote and by people there pointed by the queen and a humble address in my humble opinion will bring the queen into such extreme political and almost a crisis situation forcing an apolitical body to make one of the most important political decisions certainly in a century dr 0 gergen senior lecturer in law at middlesex university laying out tonight tell the clock is definitely working against westminster tonight dr we
appreciate your insights thank you. for you know they really want to kick you out when they are willing to get into bed politically with people they have despised for years well that could be going through the mind of italy's far right interior minister. need to not to form a political rivals the anti establishment 5 star movement and the center left democratic party well they're now attempting to join forces to create a new coalition government and to avoid a new election but what is really forcing these photos to become friends is their desire to leave my bails of being the elder politics and out in the cold he exudes calm but just have it conti has been on a wild ride.
