platforms too and that's where saatchi comes in but we should expect too much maybe some expect the situation in syria will be resolved right after a declaration when announcements and what we know how politics works these negotiations are just a stage. or there'll be no russian flag at the twenty eighteen winter olympics in south korea the international paralympic committee has upheld its ban on team russia though it's allowing clean athletes to compete as neutrals two months earlier a similar decision was taken by the international olympic committee but while all eyes are on russia now allegations of doping violations are surfacing elsewhere in the world. in the run up to next month's winter games the issue of doping has taken the main stage once again seeing the majority of russian athletes banned and those eligible to participate forced to compete under a neutral flag and frankly at this point when you hear doping you think russia but is the problem really reserved to just the one country i'm afraid the answer is
11:31 am
a resoundingly no an investigation conducted by a group of international researchers at two separate sporting events back in two thousand and eleven produced a rather shocking conclusion where more than two thousand and eight athletes were surveyed anonymously to encourage honest answers the open appears remarkably widespread among elite athletes and remains largely unchecked despite logical testing the report revealed that at the thirteenth athletics world championships in south korea over forty percent of those competing and made it to doping in the past year and almost sixty percent at the pan arab games in doha whereas want only came back with point five percent of test as positive in south korea and three point six percent at the pan arab games needless to say that is a massive discrepancy and the other surprising thing is that the research was actually funded by wada and yet no one heard a peep out of them about the result which they've known about for years we would note that there was a delay of nearly six years between the completion of the data collection and the
11:32 am
publication of this paper due to negotiations between want to and i w f and subsequently between us and the authors regarding the authority to publish the results now it goes on to say that neither of the organizations impose restrictions on the writing of the report although i'm not sure how you fix your delay isn't considered a restriction the president of germany's athletics federation for one was infuriated by the hold up but i think that publication has impaired the possibility of taking important measures in the n.t. deal being complain much earlier this is more than annoying you could also call this condo 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 or. it wasn't made into nonstop breaking news no probes 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
11:33 am
in my mind it's an example of the lack of transparency and the bias and the efforts to censor. studies and news that is problematic from their standpoint well we managed to speak to the office of the reporter they told us that there was that to indicate a doping epidemic. to international track in the us we are. forty six percent. and fifty seven percent of the athletes at these international track meets were dog being much higher than we expect our quarterly results are in this paper i would call it. i mean when you're when you are talking there half of the athletes at an international track me are asked to remain or to be doing some kind of don't.
11:34 am
i think that's a serious problem for athletics where there is certainly a problem how big it is again i go back to my previous answer that having a record prevalence estimation we don't know but even if we settle for a lower figure than just for the sake of argument i'm not saying this is the actual figure but for the sake of argument if it's ten percent. if those so important where do you stand percent happens if then percent of all the medal winners it is a big problem at the moment based on the way what we published is quite high the concerns over there. is we don't know much about the compliance. fitness trackers haven't expectedly highlighted a major security flaw for military forces and australian student was able to
11:35 am
discern the locations of secret military bases by looking at a global map indicating where people exercise the most. explains. did you know now anyone who's got an internet browser can locate even the most secret army bases around the world say journalists thanks to these little things so how come people are saying fitness trackers could have become the soldier's worst enemy look at this global heat map by a g.p.s. tracking company wherever it gets bright are the areas of the struggle apps most active use some places seem totally black like of ghana stand for instance but we know there are american soldiers and parts of it zoom in tot all the little bright dots is where sam must hang out or to be more precise exercise it was a twenty year old student who first noticed how easy it was to find the u.s.
11:36 am
bases this particular track looks like it logs or break you are jogging route i shouldn't be able to establish any pattern of life from this far away so that's a real threat which the pentagon's admitted while only a few years ago they were happy to distribute thousands of fit bits among staff by the way there must be a number of temporary or even permanent u.s. bases that we don't know about journalists have zoomed in on areas around mosul and iraq and roc-a in syria we're told uncle sam is there to train and assist since the rest of iraq and syria are pretty much all black perhaps locals don't really have many of these devices so it's fair to assume that the bright spots are where americans train others and train themselves another journalist remembered this article and scrawled all the way to the capital of somalia
11:37 am
some heavy jog next to the two on the beach around the reputed cia annex at mogadishu no one can say for sure all of this is correct but the. cern is out there u.s. troops security issues aside i was going to show you the koreas how's that for contrast but even in pyongyang there are a couple of bright zigzags could it be mr kim enjoying a bit of western technology well i bet he'll never tell us will be back with more of your news headlines after this short break.
11:38 am
we've seen that market failure many times we saw in two thousand and nineteen 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. welcome back now several major german con make is that under fire of
11:39 am
a controversial testing methods it's been revealed that they were involved in potentially hazardous experiments on humans and animals peta all of a house. puffing humans inhale toxic fumes is apparently county juvenile all supposed to be in the street carried out its health research it's emerged in the media that the giants of the german coal industry allegedly signed shouldn't experiments on both humans and animals the experiments were carried out by you know defunct research group that was filled. 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 university's ethics board and it's understood that there was no adverse health effects for those who
11:40 am
took part in the study however this doesn't stop people being outraged and shocked that this was given the green light in the first place 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. 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.
11:41 am
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 in recent years as well as legal action over attempts to cheat on emissions tests for diesel vehicles allegations of carrying out experiments on people and animals so unlikely to improve the industry's reputation peter all of a party. whether russia's presidential elections not far from now are to spoke to one of the more colorful candidates because then he has thought jack now sees. famous in russia for being a t.v. host her father was the merest of petersburg and the man who introduced lattimer putin to the world of politics she enjoyed a gilded youth but got into politics herself in herself in two thousand and twelve joining russia's opposition movement this year she decided to run for president and the slogan vote for me is
11:42 am
a vote against everyone artie's oksana boyko interviewed her and the chat ended up getting rather tetchy with at one point even threatening to sue this channel. i have one last question i don't want you to take it as a personal attack i think it's an important one a few years ago you were. having a conversation with your neighbors about the repair work on your part i don't think it's correct to discuss criminal cases because this was a private talk on telephone which was what was it it has gone by says be so it's a criminal case and it will scream and report it see you are my old rival waiting i think it was a criminal case and you know this it's unconstitutional to do this to discuss it and even to report it if you would show these on your t.v. . in the store and they will closely cause it's a lawful i won't do that but i'm just saying we can discuss our lawful things. well the tape that acts on a book i was talking about is
11:43 am
a recorded phone call allegedly from because the nearest object to the management of the building she lives than about ongoing refer bushman works because many children also live in the building the works were rescheduled to an earlier time of day apparently infuriating sob jack during the expletive laden recordings sobchak used swear words to describe the children when it first appeared online subject claimed it had been illegally obtained and heavily edited my colleague chatted to our teens oksana boyko about her interview with the presidential hope. before that we had twenty five minutes discussing various things about russia its past its future its president has a fairly critical take on the state of affairs in russia and we came to that point because i personally think that the way you behave in private in people around you the neighbor in your friends people you don't know is relevant to what kind of
11:44 am
a president do you may be and that's why i decided to ask her about that conversation i think perhaps her argument maybe crossed the line because you took the if you want to a post no level no talking about politics with. claiming that she's entitled to some degree of privacy which she is to such an extent because when she crosses into a more public domain and that conversation is why the available on the russian social media that's more exciting everybody is discussing it and i think it is relevant because she's running for public office and people want to see the politicians not only how they present themselves in front of the cameras when they're comfortable questions but also they want to see. think and i think that was not the case talking about a woman who's running for the russian presidency you know where to i think what's lacking here is maybe positive speak all diplomatic behavior perhaps you know i put . some world leaders or so you about putin but love him or hate him you've got to
11:45 am
respect him because even under the highest pressure putin does seem on a public that will to stay cool calm and collected but it's not even about staying cool calm and collected i mean imagine if you taped putin having a conversation let's say ukrainian f.s.b. you know security services having a conversation with somebody and saying you know i have to consider this law that will save lives of the children but i couldn't care less about it what do you consider that a genuine topic worthy of attention i would because i think that person is in the public limelight. he claims to represent the people and those kind of questions asked we're the questions about how much do you really care about people in this country sonia's of jack is one of a number of candidates competing for the russian presidency we care and president vladimir putin is running for what would be his fourth term russia's clone communist party presented a new face this year pavel's greediness that can do that however the candidates
11:46 am
from the liberal democratic policy and the more liberal leaning yabloko policy fled to iran ski and grigory yavlinsky all this same as in the previous election. i'll be back a bit top of the hour with the latest headlines do join us then. ran out of the closest to the best out of georgia. to have to concerts i was preparing to perform i had actually prepared myself to die i. don't know sir he did what. most eight cursed when i asked him. as most of. you. you know homo stuff how do you know her cause.
11:47 am
this country was. really good civilization. so we'll see of getting. more trying to show you that he could with us he was just that yes more here guy did mission a storyteller picked education a couple so kind of toilet b.s. i never knew it. was. when else truths seemed wrong. but old rules just don't hold. any new world yet to shape out these days become educated and in detroit because betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground.
11:48 am
greetings and salutation so far and wide and across the land there's no greater waster of money than an unaccountable government no i'm not saying that money isn't wasted and abused in the private sector of course it is just that government wasted 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
11:49 am
in the united states of america our leaders love to waste our tax dollars especially when it comes to lawsuits cover ups and settlements as 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 there's a cool 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 where instead paid bout 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.
11:50 am
if you get the. real thing it's like. the bottom. like you that i got. this. week so i. rolled over on the watch of the harks like a robot for a damn time and while there that's a lot of millions that's a lot of millions a lot of weight i'm not going incredible amount of waste i call it waste because my mind if you're paying out settlements and you're hiring bad officers just right especially valid large of a number i get their started i can't predict every now and again but when i'm forty two million that's a lot of waste and you know six hundred dollars for
11:51 am
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 waste in government 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 didn't want to election taxpayers just keep pouring a band it's kind of like what it has to go like this is the thing is it seems like there is a certain 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 in their office and all that and there's a certain amount of. there's an ethical bone in your body i can't imagine going in
11:52 am
as a public servant and being like i want to find three million dollars for it or i want this or signing off on it not quite and not questioning like i will be paying for this remember oh yeah those people that put got me elected or in this case for new jersey like who's paying for forty two million in settlement allegations of the people of new jersey of new jersey you know and that's i mean look these allegations involving nineteen deaths one hundred thirty one injuries another misuse of power by the police so i'm not saying that settling with the victims of this is bad no give them the money they deserve that they brought a legit complaint but it has to eventually fall back into gotta say like ok maybe we're not hiring the right polies not rehire him every three months maybe if we look back and say i did because this is the gauge it was massive it was a two year investigation they were thirty thousand pages of documents court filings lawsuits all of it and they and i was covering five hundred sixty five different minutes apologies in new jersey is all intense and it makes me wonder what other
11:53 am
states have their own bomb but wow this is a lot this is just forty two million and this is the where when you look at that this forty two million as you said one thousand deaths one hundred thirty one interviews 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 a bodily injury case for two million 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 you can take two million dollars away from eighty three hundred people that's roads that's water that everything that. things.
11:54 am
and when you look at the numbers you had at least sixty eight. sixty eight given more than seven hundred thousand dollars in tax dollars just to quit hey when you quietly resign we're going to do 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. i don't do as taxpayers members 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 coroner's 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
11:55 am
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 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 that he's 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 and 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
11:56 am
party's over a recent cleanup effort by the city found seven point two million pounds of debris 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. at some point does the tradition of throwing beads need to be rethought when it cost millions of dollars in damages and threatens the health of
11:57 am
the people who call new orleans home. no zero at this point i mean look down there just so a girl. or. whatever. you can do that you can see that on line rather than telling a big. lead in your daughter that question the whole of the horrible stuff. there's a certain moment the party is gone too 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 have it in them to lift up your top and that sort of came out of of my do you seventy's became a thing that they started having these plastic beads which is about the time we got . them so for those types of things you write so in this and other study that was by a group called healthy stuff dot org and very girl just trying to sort of green up
11:58 am
the mardi gras celebrations these beads contain a range of hazardous substances that exceed the consumer product safety improvements regulation 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 him out. right now. extremely toxic but it's interesting when you break down what's in these as we're talking about earlier it is interesting that. taking credit for your work but more than half of them are to grow products they tested six out of seven had levels of lead above a hundred. that's actually the legal limit for lead in children's toys and. as 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 presley
11:59 am
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 butcher this is some other science major. two. banned by the consumer product product 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 substances sure and i'm going to do this as you can see unlike 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 through grams of like don't they literally have on there don't let your kids touch them wipe them off with baby
12:00 pm
b. if people who handle them a lot are encouraged. very shortly hardly to wear gloves when they're handling the case they can also give the tab is there any alternative that is always worse still i still want to see people get underlings have a great time break bar to grow balls or just on their own let down on the ground one of the alternatives that are out there perfect from the lead party favors the charlie 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 norland some of the groups that have these out these crews like crew the floors that make it a point. sorry for interrupting your viewing that we're going to take you to central moscow now whether russian president is talking to his closest aides and.
