the president of germany's athletics federation for one was infuriated by the hold up banning the publication has impaired the possibility of taking important measures in the anti doping compay much earlier this is more than annoying you could also call it the scandal and guess what the report was actually released months ago but i'd bet good money that you haven't heard a thing about it because for some reason it wasn't made into nonstop breaking news no probs were conducted and no bands were seen this was a study which of course would raise alarms with the world anti-doping agency instead of pursuing it and doing further tests to determine the accuracy to try to verify or disprove the results of that study they simply blocked the publication so in my mind it's an example of the lack of transparency in the bias and the efforts to censor. studies and news that is problematic from their standpoint. we managed to speak to one of the report's authors about the results of their findings while we did this survey is scapel

aids on that a condition under which they could not be exposed to whether or not they have no invasive. form sentencing substances in the previous five months because of the methodology if not in the exact method if we estimate the number of athletes or the proportion of athletes in the sample and that probably said yes to that question if you are using different methodologies for example the athlete biological passport the estimated use of the finger ranges between fourteen to twenty percent in some countries higher and that if one chooses to lower so having that difference it is not surprising but even if we settle for a lower figure it's also important where the seven percent happens if ten percent of all of the medal winners it is a problem. several of major german car makers are under fire over controversial testing methods it's been revealed that they were involved in potentially hazardous

experiments on both humans and animals peter oliver has details. having humans inhale toxic fumes is apparently how the german automotive industry carried out its health impact research it's emerged in the media that the giants of the german car industry allegedly sanctioned experiments on both humans and animals. the experiments were carried out by a now defunct research group that was funded by volkswagen daimler a big m.w. in the experiments twenty five of volunteers inhaled nitrogen dioxide put through. university hospital the experiments were given the ok by the universe the ethics board and it's understood that there was no adverse health effects for those who took part in the study however this hasn't stopped people being outraged and
7:33 am
shocked that this was given the green light in the first place for us according to what is known to the public the discuss that many people are feeling is absolutely understandable these tests on monkeys or even humans can in no way be ethically justified they raise many critical questions for those who are behind these tests and those questions must urgently beyond's it the same organization it previously found itself in the hope water for experiments on animals including forcing ten monkeys to inhale the exhaust fumes of the w.p. cell while watching cartoons the car manufacturers for their part of being quick to distance themselves from these experiments. we believe that the scientific method chosen that the time was wrong the b.m.w. group is in no way influenced by the design or methodology of studies carried out on behalf of the e.u. g.t. the animal experiments in the study are superfluous and repulsive generating around four hundred billion euro yearly the german also industry has come in for criticism
7:34 am
in recent years as well as lead. attempts to cheat all the machines tests the diesel vehicles allegations of carrying out experiments on people and. so likely to improve the if you take should piece role of a policy. animal rights attorney jerry says the industry has managed to dodge laws protecting with governments complicit we can't trust these companies to be able to give any kind of meaningful assessment of whether this was the correct option we can expect these industries to be able to give any kind of meaningful cost benefit analysis given that they shown time and time again that they're willing to use and kill animals for frivolous reasons these major industries have colluded together and have successfully lobbied governments around the world including the u.s. government to basically rarely enforce and the few laws that exist to protect
7:35 am
animals at all and so it's extremely rare that any kind of enforcement will take action even against what is in this case extreme violence against animals and we are back in just a moment with our top story. we've
7:36 am
seen that market failure many times or scientific in one nine hundred ninety seven in one nine hundred eighty seven and we're going to see it again probably in the very near future because the underlying design of this capitalist system has not been modified to account for changes in technology over the past fifty sixty seventy years and we keep having these catastrophic failure. thanks for joining us here on our two islamic state as a military power may have been defeated in syria but the country's political crisis has yet to be resolved the representatives of the syrian government on various opposition groups have now got that in the russian city of sochi for a new round of peace talks auntie's what i've got now looks of whether they are any
7:37 am
closer to a breakthrough. dialogue has been sorely lacking in the syrian civil war in two thousand and twelve the geneva peace process was initially founded in the six years since it is achieved nothing one side or the other would go to these talks without preconditions sometimes extreme preconditions and that has to paedo those talks this process on the other hand is designed to be more frank more open. there have already been eight or nine rounds of talks since we first came to geneva the end of twenty thirteen unfortunately the geneva process yielded no results for now there's no progress the science of just shrunk back into their stances we blame the syrian government for that in its stubbornness over the political transition issues so we need a breakthrough we need an impulse that would push the geneva process further we
7:38 am
think that this congress can pave the way for the future progress in geneva unfortunately not everyone is on board the syrian negotiation committee which represents a number of rebel groups voted to boycott. you think the way the war was going that that be interested in talking but perhaps there was pressure on them not to get involved the syrian negotiation commission agreed not to attend the sortie conference our focus remains delivering a credible political transition for syria through the un legend eva talks putin's spokesperson said it himself don't expect a breakthrough a peace treaty you re conciliation here in sochi this is not what this venue is about it's just a space for the various sides in syria the various ethnicities denominations to come together and to talk about their differences not necessarily resolve them it's to get the bull rolling because what has been sorely lacking in the syrian civil
7:39 am
war is any sort of dialogue between the warring sides between the rivals and the opponents this is intended to set up to give them an opportunity to sit down and to talk about their differences. as what i just mentioned the sides do not agree on many points about syria's future including for example the fate of the current president bashar al assad but despite their differences pro-government and opposition representatives do agree on one thing that discussing these problems is crucial. we are here now to negotiate to sit in front of each other to fight each other to shout at each other to talk to each other to talk frankly we hope that here in sochi we can achieve what we couldn't achieve in geneva after eight rounds of talks now with the syrian government cannot just avoid these negotiations they will have to meet all the participants of the congress face to face that is a step forward that was not made in geneva it will be useful for geneva. and i'm at
7:40 am
the head that our sochi is your regarding so what you should remember there are many problems both on the ground and political the syrian army with its allies has liberated large areas and eliminated terrorist leaders anyway the geneva negotiations lead to nothing in order to please other parties that happens with other negotiation platforms too and that's where sochi comes in but we shouldn't expect too much maybe some expect the situation in syria will be resolved right after a declaration when announcements in sochi but we know how politics works these negotiations are just a stage. but if i was here in moscow as crypto currency has grow in value hackers are finding new ways to steal them the new so-called crypto jacking method is fast becoming popular the mechanism allows hackers to secretly mine cryptocurrency on your computer while you're watching internet or using infected applications on your smartphone it's been reported that google and you tube were
7:41 am
exposed to such malware recently but somehow because prefer to do it the more traditional way and simply steal the digital coins from web wallets. talk to a representative from a crypto currency exchange that's tough with the biggest crypto robbery so far that was just a few days ago popular japanese crypto currency exchange coin check confirmed on friday that it had fallen victim to the largest attack in the modern cryptocurrency history over four hundred million dollars war. tokens have been stolen now we have no foundations in this partnership coordinator mick. to get some clarity on the situation how could a secure trading platform come under such an attack. so it is very important to distinguish two points here from one side if you speak about number of course it
7:42 am
is a more secure form but if we speak about the trading platform the exchange as they didn't use any security measures that we provide to them and this allows us to easily deal this money mikhail so what's the status on the tokens and has there been any luck in locating the hackers. all the money are known on them blog and we track them and we try exam. for legal matters of course should be prosecuted and we give it to an f.s.a. and to a japanese authorities to find and prosecute them has this affected them scheme unity in any way what's the chatter like. and then community was always dream and we saw support from people all the time but sometimes such an unfortunate events would happen to really give a good test to our community and really education is happening and this new people are getting good advice on how to secure their funds well you heard it
7:43 am
a new paradigm in global finance and global crypto security we can only hope that we can learn from our mistakes and have a safe future beguile francis and giago r.t. . it is not international slavery it may have been abolished in the modern world but the problem is far from gone with gangs preying on vulnerable people coming now the story of one man forced into begging who did finally manage to regain his liberty. to worship. their. first if their if that makes you so internationally if. there's a. lot

7:46 am
said to finishing there a couple so when it. was. normally gets manufactured sentenced to the public will. when the ruling classes project themselves. with the famous merry go round certainly the one percent. that's not. the room.
7:47 am
greetings and salutation so far and wide and across the land there's no greater waster of money than an unaccountable government saying that money isn't wasted to be used in the private sector of course it is just that government waste it just it just hurts a little bit more you know that knife cuts just a little bit deeper when you're dealing with government waste because when a private company weighs money it's generally their own that they're wasting but when a government wastes money well that's yours and mine and all of ours essentially being thrown down the proverbial six hundred dollar toilet or the twenty four million dollar refrigerator yes yes they really are paying twenty four million for a new big league refrigerator on air force one from city hall to capitol hill here in the united states of america our leaders love to waste our tax dollars
7:48 am
especially when it comes to lawsuits coverups and settlements is the citizens of the great state of new jersey have discovered after their investigative journalist over at the asbury park press revealed that quote governments across the state from the smallest towns to some of the largest cities have spent more than forty two million this decade to cover up deaths physical abuses and sexual misconduct at the hands of bad cops. forty two million and that's just across the state of new jersey imagine what it's like in all the other states reporters also found that more than sixty eight new jersey police officers are facing facing discipline were instead paid about seven hundred thousand in tax dollars to quietly ride off into the sunset and yet. they still ask and wonder why we are and always will be watching the hawks. to. the bank like. it's like. the bottom.
7:49 am
like you know that i got. this. week so i. rolled over on the watch of the hawks i am so over for and i'm to have a whole lot less that's a lot of million that a lot of millions a lot of waste i'm going incredible amount of waste i call it waste because in my mind if you're paying out settlements then you're hiring bad officers just right especially vallarta but number i get their started i mean you can't predict every now and again but when that forty two million that's a lot of waste and you know six hundred dollars for a toilet twenty four million for a refrigerator does there's a lot there's a lot of waste. in mumbai and i think we have so much ways that the government
7:50 am
really because i don't think so a lot of the people there really feel like they are that they didn't earn the money all they did was that when an election taxpayers just keep pouring a band it's kind of like what seems to me this is the thing is it seems like there is a certain as a sense of entitlement that happens when a lot of politicians i think you can always spot the politicians who aren't in it for the right reasons they're really public servants they're serving themselves and . maybe a small group of people just their constituency and really just the one percent of their constituency is that you can see it because the people who back up this kind of wasteful spending who come to that thing of saying well they feel entitled they feel entitled to fancy new curtains and their office and all that and there's a certain amount of at that there's an ethical bone in your body i can't imagine going in as a public servant and being like i want to fight for a million dollar for it or i want this or signing off. and i questioning like paying for this rumor or you know those people that put got me elected or in this
7:51 am
case for new jersey like who's paying for forty two million and settlement allegations of the people of new jersey of new jersey you know and that's i mean look these allegations involve nineteen deaths one hundred thirty one injuries and other misuse of power by the police so i'm not saying that settling with the victims of this isn't as bad no give them the money they deserve if you know they brought a legit complaint but it has to eventually fall back you got to say like ok maybe we're hiring the right polies not rehiring they have a bomb they were in court for if we if we look back and say i mean because this this investigation was massive it was a two year investigation they were viewed thirty thousand pages of police documents court filings lawsuits all of it and they and that was covering five hundred and sixty five different men this apologies in new jersey is all intensive and it makes me wonder what other states. but wow this is a lot this is just borrow forty two million and this is the where when you look at
7:52 am
that this forty two million as you said one thousand deaths one hundred thirty one interest and other abuses of power. and when you look at it like take for example there's one tiny borough of absecon and atlantic county said that right population is eighty three hundred people they paid two million to settle a two thousand and twelve wrongful death case now in new york with a population of two hundred eighty thousand. settled the bodily injury case for two million while you have towns that have an eighty three hundred people on their backs supporting these payouts to bad cops now a town of two hundred eighty thousand can can withhold two million dollars can have you know they can handle that in their budget you can't handle that in a place of a you can take two million dollars away from eighty three hundred people that's roads that's water that everything that's. things. and when you look at the numbers you had at least sixty eight. sixty eight given
7:53 am
more than seven hundred thousand dollars in tax dollars just to quit hey when you quietly resign we're going to be almost a million dollars a million dollars that bad that we're just going to pay you to write off this i'm sick of paying for bad cops. taxpayers number this is again our money that's going into this it doesn't magically grow on trees now money that was taxed whether it be at a local level or federal level that's what this is what's also interesting when you really dig into the numbers of this particular issue with police is that you've got the new jersey according to this report is one of six states that doesn't actually life of their police officers they have no official procedure method to ban bad cops and there are many other states that also have this problem as well which boggles my mind in today's day and age that we've reached this level twenty one the last thing before we move on before we get on to this is that the asbury park press
7:54 am
actually found at least sixty four thousand three hundred fifty three infernal affairs complaints filed since joining a lot. then you're going to lose it less than one half of one percent that's two hundred twenty six resulted in officer being charged of a crime of those defendants ninety were convicted so that's the numbers not good that's a lot of money and feeding people educating people cleaning cleaning up roads cleaning up the. value of money. on february thirteenth of this year new orleans louisiana will be packed to the parade millions with an estimated ten million or more people celebrating the prelims in bulk and alia that is mardi gras along with those tourists every year twenty five million pounds of plastic beads are brought into the city to be thrown and then thrown away once the party's over a recent cleanup effort by the city found seven point two million pounds of debris
7:55 am
in fifteen thousand of the city's sixty eight thousand storm drains between september twenty sixth two thousand and seventeen and january twenty third of twenty eight ninety three thousand pounds of that debris were all mardi gras beads and they were found in one five block stretch near downtown. but it's not just the litter that has people worried the louisiana department of health warns that some beads and throws may contain lead and there may be lead in the soil the parade along the parade route in fact dr howard milky of tulane university's department pharmacology map new orleans and from the highest lead counts in the soil along the mardi gras parade route in his estimate four thousand pounds of lead hit the streets each year. some point in the tradition of throwing the need to be rethought when it cost millions of dollars in damages and threatens the health of the people who call new orleans. no zero at this point i mean
7:56 am
look down there just so a girl. or doodling whatever. you can do that you can see that on line rather than telling a. lead in your water that question the whole of the horrible stuff. mobile reaches of the party has gone too far and you're thinking about this is that originally we're talking about something that started in the thirty's that was glass beads originally and they were very treasured because only certain floats gave them out or certain people and so if you haven't updated them to lift up your top in order that sort of came out of us might be seven days became a thing that they started having these plastic beads which is about the time we got . them so we're not over those types of things right so in this other study that was by a group called healthy stuff dot org and very girl just trying to sort of green up the mardi gras celebrations these beads contain a range of hazardous substances that exceed the consumer product safety. regulation
7:57 am
tests have shown at mardi gras beads to contain lead antimony chromium cadmium nickel trace levels of mercury and several flame retardants all of these things are incredibly these are having about. that right now. marty. dreamily toxic but it's interesting when you break down what's in these as we're talking about earlier is interesting data. taking credit for your work but more than half of them are to grow products they tested. seven had levels of lead above a hundred. that's actually the legal limit for lead in children's toys. it was above so prone to be put on your body getting into the going down the drain that's just dump unleaded there not to mention the fact that the little mardi gras plastic footballs is not just the beaded necklaces you know it's all of somebody getting thrown out they can do about twenty nine percent. by weight which including the
7:58 am
butcher the amount of science major. to put the. band by the consumer products safety commission in the plastic football i want to know why is anybody in the party toyed business saying hey let's pack our toys because what really gives people a good time let's pack our toys with toxic substance and sure i'm not going to do this you can see i'm like the the life of these beads is that you know you take petroleum from the middle east it goes to china it gets all packed in with these horrible toxic chemicals and shipped off along with other a cheap plastic things to throw out and as new orleans is also trying to make mardi gras more family friendly and they're like there's kids programs like don't they literally have on their don't let your kids touch them wipe them off with baby b. if people who handle them a lot are encouraged. very shortly hardly to wear gloves when they're handling the
7:59 am
case they go to the tab is there any alternative that is we still i still want to see people get out of the orleans have a great time mardi gras a legend in their own let down on the ground anybody one of the alternatives that are out there per from the left party favors to start early we've all been using right at least put them in the proper guard garbage disposals and don't dump them out so that they clog up these very old drains because we do know that you know hurricanes make that even worse there are some groups and new orleans some of the groups that have these out these crews like crew the floors that make it a point to only throw things that are biodegradable that are you know we're sorry here hand made of recycled materials and this year what they're going to be showing is this which is the be made from flower seeds so they'll be handing out these will michael says this began it and you could take it home with you and plant and flowers from mardi gras will grow flowers are much better than lead yeah that's way better that i don't think not because we go to break don't forget to let us know
8:00 am
what you think about topics covered facebook and twitter see our poll shows that's r t v dot com coming up we welcome retired brigadier general tony to the hawk's nest to discuss reports of u.s. support of afghan soldiers violating human rights in afghanistan and the talk about his new book stay tuned to watch for the. politicians to you should. put themselves on the line they get accepted or rejected . so when you want to be president. some want to. let you go right for us this is what. reasonable people are. interested always in the water. there.
