there it's nice to have a company watching international with make. now doctors in moscow are trying to save the lives of a baby and a young child critically injured in the volgograd terrorist attacks they've been brought to the russian capital for special treatment after the blasts. as the details. of their russian children's clinical hospital it's one of the best such hospitals in the country and the girls are both being treated here now the nine year old received her injuries during the first blast that took place in the volgograd on the twenty ninth of december both the girl and her mother have sustained injuries and that's terror attack this second terror attack which hit volgograd less than twenty four hours later on december thirtieth that took place on the child the bus where both the mother and the grandmother of the three month old baby were killed the girl was said and that is the report according to some of the doctors the girl was saved by a blanket in which she was wrapped which prevented her from receiving life
threatening injuries from the debris that went flying now regarding the state of health of both girls the doctors are remaining cautiously optimistic because their injuries are serious and so is their condition overall eighteen people have been brought into law school for treatment of these are some of the more serious cases out of the more than forty people who have sustained injuries thirty four people have been killed in the two terror attacks in volgograd traditionally new year's is one of the biggest holidays in the country but this year obviously this is the what is have been seriously dampened by the horrific attacks of volgograd in fact of the first three days of the year are declared days of mourning in the volgograd region there is also an alert of fifteen day long alerts for heightened terror. danger in the region as well and the mood is also exacerbated by the fact that there are thousands of police who have been brought in from other regions as well as internal
troops who are literally calming the city of volgograd and the region looking for possible clues and also. of course to prevent any other terror attacks from happening again so obviously a very desperate kind of trying time for the volgograd region at the moment and on our website we have the terrible loss that rocked russia to head to r.t. dot com for the pictures analysis and reaction to the tragedy. it is just over twenty four hours since the u.k. lifted its seven year migration restrictions on remaining garia following and e.u. wide ruling polled say most britons are ready to welcome migrants but only if they integrate and work hard however a quarter say they want immigration cutback no matter what the laws say and how the u.k. is bracing itself for the influx. leading up to the new year the british government hadn't released any estimates about the number of remain ians ambled gary and that
they expected to arrive in britain now that immigration restrictions have been lifted for them and that since he hasn't done much to allay the fears of the british public and although romanians and bulgarians now have every right to live and work freely anywhere within the european union skepticism and public concerns over mass immigration are it's an all time high if you're coming to claim benefits you shouldn't that shouldn't be allowed and also if you flag the work you shouldn't be able to go on claiming benefits you should be asked to return to your country for the latest report by the institute of public policy research dismissed these as symbolic gestures saying the person can cope with very many and ambo garion migration according to the paper instead of alarming the public the government merely needs to implement some minor contingency measures in order to help schools
and housing stretch this deadline has been known about for precisely seven years so the idea that we should be rushing around i'm thinking about it now it's completely absurd it's the duty of not just government but all people that we need to be response but actually to explain the facts which are on the whole margins are considerably less likely to claim benefits that are very different and remain in diplomats to say that their citizens are deeply offended by that portrayal as scroungers and criminals in the u.k. press they point out that most of their citizens are hardworking and will contribute to british society something that economists here happy to back up it's quite important for politicians to step back and explain that this is not the end of the world but on the whole immigration and indeed free movement within europe and you know been quite beneficial to the u.k. economy despite the politicians tough talk in the tabloid headlines fears of a flood of migrants have been dismissed as nonsense and according to remain in
officials most of their countrymen would prefer to live in spain or italy anyway. judging by the weather here who can blame them. i see london a writer and journalist john white believes it is wrong to attack the migrants because it is a two way road. oh the available evidence is that the migration to britain has been an expose of both in terms of cultural enrichment and economic investment if you just take the health service for one example we are a national health service we would be nonexistent with migrant labor all levels of skill nurses doctors consultants and clinicians we have to remember that one point six million britons british nationals are working through the u. and they enjoy the benefits of that so if we start setting up you shouldn't draw benefits from migrants we can expect
a quid pro quo. we modern europe is to tough economic challenges are becoming more and more extreme still to come in are to the right wing groups are gaining ground from the u.k. to greece and their voices are said to get loud if we came european parliamentary elections looming in the spring also feeling big city new tracks not just for the athletes this time stay with us for a look at the news divisions assault she's infrastructure that will whisk sports fans to the venue's in simple quick time. a new form of violence has hit the streets of new york and police there seem unable or unwilling to do anything to stop it rena portnoy has more now on the new gang craze that spreading fear across the city. you're walking down the street minding your own business and without warning police say they are investigating yet another knockout attack attack person mainly in their teens targeting victims at random
it's called the knockout game the goal of this violent and twisted so called game is to knock a stranger unconscious with a single punch a feared phenomenon across the nation the ongoing brutality has claimed lives in at least three u.s. states here in new york city more than ten people have been random. assaulted among the youngest a twelve year old student among the oldest a seventy six year old woman was walking along warman avenue when a man struck her in the head this man too scared to show his face on camera says he was attacked last month while walking home from work the group surrounded me and one of them as i tried to get away one of them has stepped out towards me and. with the clothes this hit me in the face in some cases suspects have been arrested and charged however exacerbating the problem these videos uploaded on you tube have
been viewed by millions raising concerns about copycat attacks many knockouts have taken place in broad daylight as victims were walking through their own neighborhoods and as the n.y.p.d. a department of thirty four thousand officers continue strong going to curb the string of violence citizens are seeking alternatives to stay safe. former n.y.p.d. officer rabbi gary moskowitz and is offering his seventh degree black belt skills for free to knock out victims and others seeking protection we're going to someone who works worker you must learn how to be aware you must learn how to fight if some girls were time for the knockout attacks or throw him into him ready to moskowitz believes are likely motivated by gang initiation it's something the n.y.p.d. hasn't officially acknowledged if they acknowledge that there's a guy who had a problem is they have to really try to curb all the gangs and they can't do that so for three or so a long time they don't want to put a name on something right away because if they put
a name want to run they have to go where through our t. reached out to the n.y.p.d. to find out what america's most powerful police department is doing to combat the knockout epidemic our questions and interview requests were ignored it is not fair to ask any poor form to be able to be assigned to everybody in the shrewd they can protect. us from new york city street. the big apple's mass surveillance system does actually allow officials to know where and when many of the crimes are occurring but so far filming the knockouts hasn't helped to prevent them merino. new york. history schemes are rising from the fukushima meltdown site but the company responsible for cleaning up the worst nuclear disaster since two noble has failed to explain the nature of the steam saying it's too radioactive to approach can lead more about this story at. all so this is one explosive entry into the record books the world's tallest building helping to buy
a house the world's largest by woods display four hundred thousand rockets held in the new year in a rifle. a stunning footage a nazi. unexplored and talk to go what is it in this icy expanse that attracts the people who come here. with no i only go to the dock. and enter into. a new generation of polar explorers is coming. we have a new group of specialists here now all of them are young how are they going to get along with each other and i don't know. who. i used to be a bureaucrat. seriously. want to venture as a way to make this mysterious land where they live want to eat and want to be
actually doing it i'm told to go. that nothing seems to be able to stop europe's to be political right at the moment with only tentative signs of economic growth and precious little good news for deeply indebted countries like greece and france it's a movement that seems difficult to reverse artie's ph all of it takes a closer look at a continent in search of nuances to hard problems. from the d.l.
in britain in the north to golden dawn in greece and the south far right groups are making their voices heard in europe. this financial crisis affected everyone and it has allowed the right wing organizations to give people someone to blame for their problems it's those people's fault that is how they were cruet greece has seen a marked increase in support of the far right and neo nazi groups golden dawn and organization the right did by their critics is hooligans and thirds heralded by their supporters as the savior of the greeks for the greeks and they systematical not only preach and cultivate. violent behavior but they attack systematically immigrants present golden dawn have made it further than most they have elected officials on their books including current greek m.p.
elias custody at us it's not only in politics that extreme right to abuse a permeating this goal celebration by. athens the order to stop the itis so the midfielder banned for life from the national team despite his claims that he didn't know what the salute meant but the clearest indicator of the popularity of the far right will be when europeans go to the polls in may to vote in the e.u. parliamentary elections one of those parties on the rise in france is muddying the lipans national front. on the european people are realizing that the year is an empire the soviet union that in fact is destroying their freedom despite insistences that they want to take part in the political discourse we've seen repeated violent clashes involving these groups even in some of the most stable nations like austria where around a third of people voted for parties that are considered the right wing in
a recent election. so we need to slow down immigration i have nothing against foreign us but enough is enough. e.u. is saying where no money should go to a leg and poor country is on its own country and did he used to wouldn't be like. dictate everything. to us it used to be that opar. interest spruced and the e.u. second now it's only. it seems as long as europe's finances continue to languish in the red more and more people are seeking says the right peter all of germany. well your hands is an expert in social trends and he says the poor state of the economy explains europe's lean to the far right the financial crisis is really the key least in my these parties have gained support in recent
years the crises and distrust of politicians is it has led to distrust of immigration or immigrants and i think what they're offering is not a very concrete alternative in terms of policy in terms of economic policy support for these parties is really based on you know and dislike of the established political regime whatever that is and so people are looking for some alternative and these parties come in and provide that but i don't think it's clear to people what they actually represent or what the consequences of their policies would be. puts his finger on one of the reasons europe is struggling to emerge from its economic doldrums politicians who simply don't know what they're doing. we now know that people who are in charge of economics know absolutely nothing about money for example none of their economic models include money they just are
modeling based on certain assumptions that don't include debt so in the u.k. economy as close to a thousand percent debt to g.d.p. inclusive a bank dead national debt household debt corporate debt that's a thousand percent what you iceland before blew up but i was born tells us this is a good this is a recovery this is good news and this to paper the times of london carries a story saying he's the britain of the year he's the clout of the year you should be getting the clout of the year meanwhile at the close association over there at the festival of red nose day one of the core comic relief they say they're out there actually investing in cigarette companies gambling companies energy companies they're the ones investing in the worst the worst of the worst in terms of companies so the real clowns are investing in death and destruction and this guy is not supposed to be a clown is out there doing a cloud of team getting people more into debt.

headed to antarctica to find out if they were a bit lucky after the break. recently the federal reserve system celebrated its one hundredth birthday the other big card game that just a few years ago no one seems to know about has been in place for one hundred years so let's celebrate the federal reserve by remembering all their accomplishments since nine hundred thirteen firstly they've managed to take the printing of money out of the hands of the u.s. government and thus out of the hands of u.s. voters are what it comes to money who needs to mark received representation anyways they also managed to whittle away the dollars tagging the golden told nixon finally said forget gold let's print our way out of vietnam because there's no link between . the dollar and gold the purchasing power of the dollar has reduced by at least
twenty three times since the fed came into being lovely but what about the next hundred years well if the recent rounds of quantitative easing are any sign of things to come then we are going to be seeing a lot more inflation and big private bankers getting richer while we all get poorer bad people generally don't survive one hundred years but bad systems sadly can go on and on and on forever but that's just my opinion.
summer is coming to an end. the crew of the academic field of is waiting for the research station to pack up for winter everything has to be done quickly if the wind gets any stronger the helicopter won't be able to take off and there's no other way of getting people onto the ship from the station they need to hurry
winter begins tomorrow. used to be the biggest antarctic research station. now it only works during the summer. in the southern hemisphere summer starts in december and ends in much it's now april so seasonal operations are over. geological samples are gathered during the summer a loaded into containers. old water is drained from the station and windows are boarded up and filled in with insulation if the snow is given even the slightest chance to sneak in it will be impossible to dig it out of .
the diesel generator was the last to be shutdown no one can survive without heat. takes just a few hours to complete. the station is ready for winter. or will fly people to make fuel. good to see you good to see you're back here they told us you'd come you're here and fortune is smiling upon us again everything's going to be great.
