on the big monitors that will be installed there and i'll tell you what that is quite unusual for a formal speech like that and that's intriguing because i don't remember seeing the president giving some visual presentation mr putin loves showing some knowledge with numbers so probably we will see that on these monitors and also hear him talk about the economy a lot with real incomes having fallen across the country that people will be expecting some announcements on how to reduce poverty while the business community will be looking forward to hearing about specific steps that can be made to help the country would cover from recession of course whenever the russian president is speaking he's always going to talk about international issues and with things not getting easier when it comes to wash his relations with the west and also syria is

2:04 am
out and i challenge any member of parliament to live in the conditions we are currently living in here i bet they are even afraid of entering this area they have no idea how horrible the smell is or how critical the medical situation is well i haven't received any kind of aid or support since thing is finished is seven months ago on one occasion did they receive a small box of food no coupons no food nothing well any marcum from the norwegian refugee council who worked on the report says refugees fear traps and violent reprisals if indeed they do return home there's a number of dangers i think one of the largest threats is that a bomb exploded balls unexploded mortars and baby traps and in fact we heard one report of a family who returned home only to find their house they retract it. and it killed a family member some of the other things that make it so the papal violent thrown the community around them people even as they did that having lived. with isis

a particularly vulnerable that other people under the threat of violence by. members of their own tribal communities so there are a number of reasons why unsafe for people to return why. washington is seeking access to data stored in other countries a case between the american government and microsoft is currently being heard by the u.s. supreme court the issue started five years ago when microsoft refused to hand e-mails related to drug trafficking an investigation on that over two or thorough teas it claimed the data was stored on servers in ireland where they know where the u.s. law has no jurisdiction and washington argues that the tech giant is obliged to share their data as it's an american company activists claim but should microsoft lose it would set a precedent making it easier for foreign states to access data based in the u.s.
2:06 am
the tech giant says the credibility of all companies is at stake the reality is that people will not use technology they do not trust we need to sustain their trust and part of sustaining their trust is giving people confidence that their legal rights under their legal systems will in fact be respected including by the united states who put the issue up for debate with a political activist george bought a security consultant poll view of us. government needs to take a stronger role in monitoring certain activity on the internet and in social media if we are going to try try to stay in line and somewhat ahead if we can with groups such as isis al shabaab boko hogan that are using the internet and are using social media as a high way of transporting information to plan and execute terrorist attacks so it's a matter of creating a balance there are many sort of covert means of communicating effectively online

if you want to that wouldn't be touched by this judgment in the particular case the issue the irish government has been very clear it would have it had there been a request from the justice department for the information that is stored on these servers in ireland they would absolutely have responded by releasing that by releasing that data as we know from the revelations of edward snowden and another is there are huge questions to be asked in terms of the legitimacy and of of u.s. snooping and the interested of beings and certainly is a political activist that has genuine cause to fear governments essentially using internet spying to undermine effective democratic dissent i think this is a really important issue that that needs to be kept at the forefront of the discussion it's important to understand that what we're looking to do with this is not to have complete unfettered as i said before access to the internet but enough
2:08 am
access so that there are key words phrases documents pictures etc that will be used for algorithmically to detect issues in instances preemptively that law enforcement that military that government can intervene on it's not a carte blanche decision to say ok now you have complete access to to the internet to social media debates or it's raising generally significant points about when it's appropriate for law enforcement to be able to access information but i. i think there are there are very large questions going forward in the internet of his possibilities for snooping on virtually every single aspect of anybody's interaction with any other individual on the planet and any decision that essentially opens the floodgates into a sort of free for all governments on the basis of the idea that they're doing something worthwhile to look at anything they want i think raises huge problems. so

of the affair had this to say. the time for reconciliation is over now is the time for justice we must ensure that we restore the dignity of our people without compensating the criminals who stole our land malema is a controversial and somewhat radical figure in south africa in the past he has said that he's not calling for the softer of white people at least not yet in recent years there has been a spike in the killing of farmers in south africa now those who support the motion say it will go a long way to restoring justice but those who criticize or say it will do anything but there are those who say it will lead to unforeseen consequences and also will be a scapegoat that the a.n.c. can use to explain away its own failures nonetheless it certainly seems as if we are far away from restoring racial tensions in a country that has so much history mired in them. russian biopic drama

2:12 am
anything all of that is kind of hard to explain because i think there were. other intentions than just competition but i was amazed it was even shown there when i walked by the convention center where the festival took place a sort of person with a book in german a bell. and another in english and then a young german guy came up to me and started asking me. about our culture nineteen seventies leningrad culture what kind of struck me was how well all film was received how universal and relatable it was to everyone women dominated this year's brother now with both of the top prize is awarded to female filmmakers nevertheless the lack of female representation generally in the film industry was discussed at a special festival panel as was the topic of sexual harassment in the wake of the me too movement. again share his views on that issue.

this is a tough one on the one hand we've got to treat the sixties absolutely equally there should be obviously no gender preferences on the other hand bearing in mind everything that's going on some sort of support for women is important it's a pic of sick child harassment was indeed brought up at the festival listen i don't think we should just judge someone else's culture their culture differs from ole's their outlook on things is different if we funded offensively have every right to do so i think we have less problems with this in russia i've heard some unpleasant stories but very few as strange as it may seem generally moshe attitudes to women working in the film industry judging by my peers is more transparent and positive than in hollywood maybe because we have less money less money there is the less power the list temptation different attitudes it's a half past eight in the morning here in moscow march first we are back in half an hour with more of your wild white used.
