if you care about humans. this is why you should care what you only. it's day five of pro e.u. protests in ukraine with the speaker i was twenty in parliament joining the rally adding fuel to the growing diplomatic tension. that's the sound of a do it yourself gun three d. technology now allows weapons of any shape to be printed in metal. forty five to thirty five hours depending on the machine we put it on and what materials were we talked to the engineers of printed three d. firearms and find out whether the technology could be about to get out of control. and was less than one hundred days to go before the winter paralympics in sochi
russia sledge hockey team is training harder than ever for its debut games. this is actually coming to you live from moscow with me marina joshie welcome to the program. protests continue in ukraine against the government's rejection of an e.u. trade deal and association agreement and that's as an e.u. summit is set to start in the lithuanian capital vilnius where ukraine's president promised to explain to the blocs leaders why they turned down the path i do like here in kiev for us. protests continue in kiev they have been very peaceful over the past several days but this may well be calm before the storm because everyone is waiting for the eastern partnership summit in vilnius and the biggest question is whether the u.s.o.c. should deal between brussels and key it will be signed the opposition already says
that if it will not be signed they'll be taking people into the streets on a massive national wide strike and inside what they describe as a euro revolution would in any case the euro association deal is not only causing a tension on the ground here in kiev but also the diplomatic level while moscow and brussels are still trying to find out who blackmailed who over this deal some european politicians are coming to keep their waste no time to energize the crowds from the stage with the fiery speeches one speech by a lithuanian a parliamentary speaker caused controversy and some sort of pressure on the ukrainian government in these words let's listen and i congratulate the people of ukraine as you have gathered here to stand for the european future of your country and if you any a has already torn its path to becoming a member of the european union if you any and trust that the ukrainian people will make the right choice well after the speech was made by the least twenty and upon entry speaker. a high ranking diplomat of the twenty nine was you were summoned to
the ukrainian foreign minister to provide explanations so you can see that it's not only causing tension on the ground but also the diplomatic level we do know that ukrainian president got a call which is traveling to vilnius but the biggest question is whether or not he will sign the euro so sation deal in the least when he and capital right now we have stonewall assurances from the great in government refund by the prime minister by the foreign minister by the president himself that the deal is off as it stands but in the rollercoaster ride which is the great in politics you can never say anything with complete certainty and there's still a chance that you know congress may bow down to the pressure which is applied on him by the protesting crowds in kiev and sign this deal my colleague paul scott will be in the least we. covered all covering the summit day i will of course provide all the details on developments from the ukrainian capital all the e.u. says ukraine still has time to change its mind over the signing of the deal we spoke to paul and tell from the panel's party and he believes there is why disregard for the risks of ukraine's integration into the union. they don't know
enough about the problems that your house. the moon wants create ukraine to eventually drain and really want to but you need to join they don't say happy to join me they don't want to take you to join you know ninety five percent of today he isn't even in your i mean this is an expansionist organization really in britain certainly don't want ukraine to join the european union because if they join that means our borders will be opened up to forty six million ukrainians and in ukraine the average wage is around three hundred euro. and we know that if they do join a lot of them will cold western at the moment we have twenty two percent youth unemployment rate in britain and we concentrate. any further with any more people. for more on what's behind ukraine's u. turn on the backlash it sparked had to our website r.t. dot com.
still to come on the program there is no such thing as an israeli well on paper at least just had we look at how a group of campaigners are calling for the recognition of national identity. and why does it take to make a full functioning gonna hold well as technology advances it seems just three d. printer will do the job and us critics are warning that development has reached a dangerous point with time running out before metal desktop printers hit the consumer market are just finds out how much of a game changer it could be. rhett's shooting range in austin texas is normally packed with gun enthusiasm. today the difference is that he's
made firing rounds with a do it yourself firearm the world's first three d. printed metal gun we wanted to showcase the abilities of what direct metal can do and what a better way than find something that can withstand a bunch of heat tolerance and accuracy all wrapped into one which in america everybody knows which is a par. eric much later is a project coordinator at solid concepts company specializing in three d. printing game prints are in the arts he was granted an exclusive tour of their austin facility which boasts ten three d. industrial printers and a glimpse of our technological future these are all the three d. printed parts that went into making this car after getting a federal firearms license the company used a process called direct metal lease or simpering to produce this browning nine hundred eleven pistol takes about twenty five to thirty five hours depending on the
machine we put it on and what materials were grown in. this three d. printing metal gun has fired over one thousand rounds in the meantime solid concepts has manufactured its second ninety nine eleven firearm we plan on making a few more prototypes for additional testing. and we don't we don't plan on going into full production on these we can afford to sell them. at the price of be required to get our money back while the prices of many three d. printers have fallen below one thousand dollars solid concepts insists the stainless steel firearm they've introduced to the world can't be replicated by hobbyists these machines start at six hundred thousand and go up to a million dollars they need to be in. industrial environments they require more electricity than is available in residential areas and they require inert gases in the chamber that are just not commonly available so it's stuff only an industrial
commercial type process and it will be years before metal printers become available on the consumer market if at all not exactly the world's first mini metal maker has already been created it prints using precious metal clay and with laser centering patterns set to expire in february it's predicted that metal desktop printers will hit the consumer market before you know it five years and how small this is going to do it maybe five years after that you starts at home workshops and and you know having one on your desktop at home so we are going there the depth of knowledge exists the price will come down. as the world has learned the convenience of technology has a downside we all love to the internet cell phones e-mail and social media before finding out that our beloved data is being monitored and stored by the n.s.a. thing the astonishing capability of three d. metal printers is no longer a secret. so when they become
a part of our households have alongside the microwave and flat screen t.v. thing put people choose to physically in the privacy of their home thing will be beyond the control of the u.s. government going up or nyah r.t. texas well here's what the first three d. of firearm look like and it was created in may this year and the technology has come a long way in just a few month it's now possible to make something that looks and works like a real weapon but the biggest threat here is according to engineering expert hod lipson the firearms can now be disguised. it's a very universal kind of technology that can be used in lots of different ways some some good some not so good but it is alarming that people have started printing guns i would say the most dangerous thing is let's say a gun that doesn't look like a gun but looks like a flower vase or something else and so the this is this ability to make things in
any shape or form really defies a lot of the conventional thinking around regulating guns around detecting them and so forth and i think that's sort of it's a whole new world when it comes to controlling these kinds of things just ahead of the program pill popping is soaring in the u.k. we find out why the brits are consuming more antidepressants than almost any other european nation that in just a few moments. do you think humanity as a whole would benefit from living some parts of the wall of g.m. we just had to play on the safe side through biotechnology through research through genetic modification we can give those small holder farmers the opportunity
welcome back you're watching r.t. international british people are one of the top consumers of antidepressants in europe a recent study has revealed and while it's largely being blamed on doctors overprescribing some aspirin say it's also financial woes and soaring unemployment that's taking their toll on the house of people in the u.k. argues laura smith reports from london. feeling a bit under the weather the solution in britain go to the pharmacy here there are pills for everything. pills for indeed jest pills for a headache pills for colds and if you've got a prescription from your doctor you can get you'll have people here too and it's increasingly likely you will have the organization of the european cooperation and development says the number of doses of antidepressants being prescribed in the u.k. has doubled in the last ten years britain now has the seventh highest prescribing
rate in the western world for drugs like prozac higher than france germany and much of mainland europe some health experts put it down to overworked prescribing drugs when therapy would be more effective some say we feel we don't have time to be depressed so we take drugs looking for a quick fix but the depression alliance reckons it's at least in part due to the effects of the economic downturn i think there are people that have come forward just because lives have been hit very badly by by losing jobs and not been able to get into jobs young people trying to get started and then finding that the financial pressures that they're under has meant that they just are not getting off the starting blocks that may need an economic recovery will mean a return to mental health too and until then the u.k. will keep on. taking the pills well not everyone in britain is depressed by money

getting psyched up for their moments to shine the winter paralympics is now less than just one hundred days away are just losing office met with some of russia's hopeful medalist. i talk to you as it should be intense fierce determined and i like you. just with two sticks one in each hand what extra risks i missed and you're constantly flying around at high speeds collisions and everything for me it's all crazy fast and tireless commitment which is. training all the time morning to night every day for these seventeen paralympic athletes are in the twenty fourteen russia sledge hockey team and thirty six year old by doing so you can is their captain he was injured in two thousand and two while serving in the russian military in chechnya. still visible before the age of twenty five i used to have a completely different life were also for both of us but after the injury i turned
to sports to realize my potential. he went from swimming to taking up a chance to join russia's brand new sledge hockey squad. because. no one is going to bring you things on a silver platter but here we had an opportunity to work for since two thousand and nine when we were told we were going to participate in the second paralympics it's been a driving force in a country that struggled to accommodate people's disabilities russia's paralympic coach says the team is helping to change perceptions in the demos over what a few minutes we're going to need more of these guys manage to prove to themselves their relatives and the entire society that they're not people with disabilities but people with limited abilities that he has been a part of paralympics nine hundred eighty four but this is the first year that russia will compete this but only change your food years ago by dean remembers before the move we were just staring at one another not really knowing what to do
first. let me show you what it's like here is the sledge what it is this is the blade and this small area is the seat. which means it's terribly unsteady like you are just imagine you have to keep your balance and simultaneously carry the puck you keep falling down and it takes a lot of time to get back up but now with that. these third chalky players the road just so she hasn't been easy it's taken an immense amount of hard work personal sacrifice and dedication but the payoff is that it's just on the eyes the principles of football it's after this experience i believe that people who have survived a car crash or a plane crash will look at us and realize that even with an injury like that you can leave or you can set your goals to achieve. seek out from the parties to leave egypt russia.
as it was some of the stories from around the world in thailand anti-government protesters have gathered at the parliament building in bangkok it also is one of the kind only true city have a national police headquarters and an adjacent hospital time prime minister yingluck shinawatra has just easily surviving once and confidence vote and that's why adding further attention to the street protests demonstrators had earlier paralyze several government ministries in the capital accusing shinawatra of acting as a stooge her brother the former prime minister. in brazil at least two people have been killed when a crane collapsed on one of the twenty fourteen football world cup danni's it happened at a stadium in some power which is due to host the opening match of the competition it's the third fatal accident to happen since construction began for the event brazil has been in a race against time to complete the arenas before next month's deadline said by football's governing body.

a state without nationality that may sound strange but for some it's a reality people in israel cannot be documented as being israeli and as a policy or discovers a united national identity could be an important step towards anding discrimination in the country the us has uncle sam russia has the bear frons has mario on and israel has a question mark if nothing else it's weird and france you're french in the united states you're american in south africa you're south african but here in israel you cannot be registered as israeli i'm though the only low you can come from moscow. and demand to be registered nationality. but you can not there man. it's a totally absurd situation in israel's population registry there are one hundred
thirty five recognized nations people are listed as jews arab druze and more but never as israeli and the most seem ok with that it's the mountain meaning it is the same the nation is the jewish nation and it has a jewish nation state in the proclamation of independence and the un resolution of november the twenty ninth one nine hundred forty seven which says that a jewish state would be formed not an israeli world if a person was to be identified as is waiting in the national registry it would challenge the claim that israel is a jewish country something the supreme court is aware of as is all we have mary and a group of israelis petitioning for change there already is a lot. different about form an arab set of them this is something to accept it's not that more crowd take reward despicably long. all of that. but for now the supreme court has dismissed the case leaving the debate on what is an israeli open
for years it was truly created by one of the country's greatest caricaturists camile goddaughter better known as dorsch but slick is clearly jewish as a question of whether the show yet ok give him up or a young man because israel was still young state and slowly he created the new israeli national guard more with the sure what happened with their neighbors palestinians included but they weren't part of the character. like the registry cyrillic lives in a world where culture faith and history are more defining then one's present and by all accounts it's likely to remain that way at least for the nearest future and israel without israelis. r t hold on. and you're watching r.t. international coming up is there a solution to the age old problem of hunger or boycott. scott says that the president of the world food prize dr king is queen and that's in worlds apart.
i hate to be a downer but i really think the olympics have lost all meaning in the past when there was the cold war it was like a battle between two ideologies taking place in the abstract and the one nine hundred thirty six olympics nazi pseudo science their self-proclaimed superiority was put on trial for the whole world to see and spent the olympics having the majority of the countries on earth participating they're now horribly horribly bland one could argue that they have become a great way for countries to show off their ex used to build up some infrastructure by think this is a big misconception let's look back to the two thousand a lympics in beijing yes china is really develop in the last twenty years but the olympics really teach us anything about this country with a radically different political system or anything about their ancient culture or the way they think or the way they live no nothing at all all we saw were some
flags and some pandas that rather unique stadium which was mostly the work of a swiss company yeah i hate to say it but i think the olympic flame is kind of burnt out over the years although i have to admit that saying the torch in the space was kind of neat i think that when and if the world ever becomes an ideological battle ground again and then the olympics will become worth watching but for now it's just generic sports from generic countries of generic stadiums but that's just my opinion. i know c.n.n. m s n b c news have taken some nuts lately but the fact is i admire their commitment to cover all sides of the story just in case one of them happens to be accurate. that was funny. it's closer to the truth just like take. off the. goods because one whole attention in the mainstream media works side by side the joke is actually on. the people.
that are teenagers we have a different brain. with no because the news of the world just is not this funny i'm not laughing dammit i'm not how. you got us into the jokes we'll handle today i said that. this is the plays that has been consecrated to god for almost a thousand of years people came here twenty some years ago and so are you stablished me and i stick life on the silent. and people feel the love of christ all working. people say you can. come but something happens on this island that makes them return to it again and
again they say the below saves them. join me james brown on a journey for the soul. only on o.t. . hello and welcome to worlds apart millions of people ever all in the western world will join hands and if things giving prayers today praising the lord for the food on their table and down throwing about a third of it into the trash can in the meantime millions of others will go to sleep hungry can we ever solve the age old problem of hunger and what is the best way to do it to discuss that i'm now joined by cannot quinn president of the world what price and a former u.s. ambassador to can void if ambassador quinn it's
a great honor to have you on the show well i'm very delighted to be with you and i want to wish you a very happy thanksgiving to all of your viewers thanksgiving is a wonderful holiday in the united states it's one that no matter what your back grown what your ethnicity what your religion is it's something that your nights all americans absolutely and things giving and is associated with food and i believe that you said once that the greatest challenge that humanity faces today is whether we'll be able to feed the in the nine billion people who are expected to populate this planet by the year two thousand and fifty now some experts would say that absolutely we can so the problem is not so much whether the planet can produce enough food there are some would argue that it already produces enough to feed everybody but rather how we can distribute this food fairly and so that nobody goes to sleep hungry well i think absolutely right that food distribution is
a huge issue and we do right know this year and twenty thirteen produce enough food to feed everyone sustainably and nutritiously and the question is. how do you get it there and you're absolutely right that about a third of the food is lost post-harvest lost and then food that is thrown away. not all consumed and this is a problem and that's why the world food prize was created by dr norman borlaug to find the breakthrough achievements that will deal with all of all of those issues and the ambassador queen i think the focus that you organization is making is more on our culture and sustainable production rather than distribution and sustainable management don't you think that it would be wise to share.
