if you could percent of the population to borderline. you know. some of the nation. the georgian government has a growing social welfare system that includes cash benefits free or low cost health insurance pensions and vouchers for getting care the social benefits are aimed at the poorest of the poor however a two thousand and nine world bank poverty assessment showed that only thirty percent of those citizens actually received cash assistance and it seems qualifications don't help either. everyone is a professional singer and in these tough times. is all she and her daughter have. the only real music to their ears would be an offer of help something neither as much great they'll hear anytime soon. the government is claiming that it's doing
3:19 am
everything possible in the current financial climate to help its people but with more and more georgians clearly have no money for even the basics like food medicine and living like this it's clear that the poverty line is very evident in the heart of the georgian capital. kashmir those are the r.t. b.c. georgia. look around the world about some of its national means the u.s. soldier accused of passing of state secrets to wiki leaks moved to a new prison was ten months bradley manning has been held arraigned based. decision to move him to a base and runs us comes out of growing international criticism that he's being held in conditions and from out. former cuban leader fidel castro made an unexpected appearance of a prominent spot in congress and the stars brought along the current president was the first time ever paid to get a sense on the news that it's not it was

a show of support from major changes which are announced history encroaches leadership of cuba's communist party and then that started brothers with. the plane carrying america's first lady to abort its mandate for getting too close to college at aircraft came within inches of each other instead of a committee when a state show of promise that racially that it's safe it was almost a circle or at base so the current record clearly with this case is all looking into whether air traffic control whatever. it is the world's thirst for energy grows it's full speed ahead for the u.s. in the other thing is shale gas deposits but it's been considered to be agreed an energy source but research is think it could actually be a cause of serious environmental health problems. it's cheap it's readily available and it's made in the united states washington has hailed shiel gas as the
3:21 am
next big thing in energy development over the past five years the u.s. has invested billions of dollars into the field bringing cheap energy to consumers still deposits lie deep underground and unlike natural gas shale is widely available in the u.s. which means the country doesn't have to pay for imports go out of me for shell revolution stems from high gas prices the main question right now is how will the shale gas industry survive now that gas prices are one hundred two hundred fifty dollars a barrel which is four times less than they were five years ago when shell development began. this tight that european countries are also looking at potential shale gas resources on their territory albeit with some hesitation brights now it's more holds then facts. more holes didn't question marks. and we have really to think realistically about this source of
3:22 am
energy we don't want to think in the terms of cause in russia and america have thought another potential plus of shale of course is stopping countries dependence on russia which the players most of europe with natural gas namely already saying that if shale deposits are found in europe most of the advantage of supplying gas to other countries what the inhabitants of the gazprom tower don't seem to be losing any sleep over their supposedly regulars here is why. we're watching the situation withing that local it's very viable but it will remain a local gas supply it's impossible to extra gas at a loss for long and if you look at the shale gas suppliers right now you'll see that most of them are losing money there. shale gas may be easily available but if development does not come cheap. in order to get shale gas you must drill
3:23 am
horizontally incessantly and that means the profit margin of the process gets lost very fast. and though the evolvement ministration has hailed shale as an environmentally friendly out from the natural gas a recent studies have put this under question several scandals have already broken out in the us because of the facts of shale gas development only environment and people's health. chill gases extracted by hydro fracking that means special chemicals around into the water to break up the rock formations the components of these chemicals are kept secret by the companies in the united states who claim it's a commercial secret put that water laced with chemicals ends up in drinking water so shale gas development poses a serious threat to the environment and health in the united states may have outdone russian gas production two years ago but like any seeming miracle cure
