you know being in my place and therefore i should be offering my resignation to. the world war two story to look pretty world for my movie for the red baron it reminds me of clinton to be one of the only survivor. but it's interesting now is that the party in power here now the conservative party is also getting increasingly frustrated with the house of lords a hardline bragg's it is in particular because the lords keep rejecting he drags it legislation that the government here is trying to push through rather embarrassing to reason may's administration has suffered fifteen defeats in the house of lords
over the past few weeks and whenever the lords reject legislation that politicians in the commons are trying to push through there is always talk of a constitutional crisis because they say elected politicians are trying to enact the will of the people whereas the on the elected laws are blocking those efforts or holding them up at least and there is on the other side of the argument argue well it's the job of the house of lords to hold politicians to account and to scrutinize the laws that they are trying to pass. here's something you might not expect there are enough opioids in the waters off seattle on the west coast of america that shellfish there have tested positive for the drugs scientists say it reflects the high number of people in the surrounding area who take the substances . but what we eat and what we excrete goes into the puget sound telling me that
there's a lot of people taking up to code on and you know in the puget sound area it's coming likely from the wastewater treatment plants will clean muscles were placed in more than a dozen locations and three of the areas were later confirmed to be contaminated waste water management to can't filter out the opioids and while muscles are unable to metabolize the drugs other sea life can and can therefore become addicted so this is the first time scientists have discovered the drugs in shellfish there and believe it highlights the extent of the nationwide opioid epidemic in the united states and there has been more than two hundred thousand prescription overdose deaths in the u.s. since one thousand nine hundred nine between that year and two thousand and sixteen overdose deaths have almost quadrupled six hundred fifty thousand opioid prescriptions are dispensed daily police aris policy researcher andrew called me thinks that overprescription is behind the epidemic. the real problem is not that you can detect oxy code and shellfish the real problem is that over exposing the
united states to this highly addictive drug has led to an epidemic of opioid addiction and overdose deaths in the united states doctors are prescribing opioids for very common problems where opioids should not be prescribed these are good medicines for treating pain at the end of life there are good medicines when used for a couple of days after major surgery but the bulk of the prescribing the bulk of the consumption in the united states is for long term common problems where opioids are much more likely to harm patients than help patients if other countries increased prescribe in the way we did in the united states i'm afraid that they will follow in our footsteps u.s. soldiers are being linked to torture interrogations in secret prisons in yemen and congress is demanding an investigation and it's among our story still ahead after the break. so.
and welcome back this is r t international claims that u.s. military personnel interrogated detainees who had been tortured in secret prisons in yemen has seen congress vote to demand the pentagon investigate the un report says suspects at this sites were exposed to two beatings electrocution and sexual violence some were imprisoned in a metal cell in direct sunlight others were denied medical treatment and there are reportedly eight hundred secret torture prisons in yemen and neighboring countries the sites are mostly run by one of the main u.s. allies in the region the united arab emirates those prisons well they were reported
on an investigation by the associated press let's take a look at their sources at the pentagon acknowledged that u.s. forces had been involved in interrogations but denied any participation or knowledge of abuse even so american personnel could still be liable for complicity in torture if they question to detainees who had also been subjected to torture human rights advocates accuse the u.s. of inertia the u.s. hasn't learned the lesson that cup orating with forces that are targeting detainees and ruling families apart is not an effective way to fight extremist groups united arab emirates denies that being involved in running secret prisons in yemen and refutes claims of being linked to torturing suspects political analyst mara osman says that there should be an independent investigation. because not to be an executioner and then be the investigator you cannot be the judge and investigate and then execute but this is what the u.s. is doing basically the u.n. should be doing this should be the job of the u.n. the u.n.
should be doing this investigation widely and with the support of the so-called civilized western world which is obviously not source of allies as we have seen with the tortures and as we have seen also with the cover ups this is what the u.s. has been doing all over the world in every base that it has every time they can someone allegedly someone who is linked to terrorism or at least someone who was against the u.s. imperial demands or requests inside of this country they are treated like animals even worse. billionaire philanthropist george soros is pouring millions of dollars into the campaigns of selected district attorney candidates in california at the same time leaked documents reveal that he is also spending millions on an anti briggs group in the u.k. mop and looks at how far the billionaires sphere of interest extent. now with all this talk of foreign meddling you would think that the activities of a hungry and billionaire pouring money into american politics might get more
mainstream media play george soros is a long time liberal money man and right now he's trying to influence the election of district attorneys across the united states basically he's pouring money into the campaigns of prosecutors he thinks will enforce the law in line with his liberal politics my name is noah phillips and i'm running for district attorney we've got some work and some healing to do to rebuild trust so we can keep sacramento safe forever. now getting supported by george soros isn't always a plus the man has plenty of detractors what does the out of state billionaire funding know with phillips campaign not telling us no with an unethical dangerous wrong for. george soros has been sticking his nose into politics around the world for decades he started out funding anti communist dissidents during the late period of the cold war more recently he's been backing best for britain an anti brags that group in the u.k.
we've got one mission and that is to try and stop george soros is foundations have along with a number of other major donors also made significant contributions to i would indeed through his foundations he's contributed four hundred thousand pounds he's been working to try and repeal the abortion laws in ireland. that tiffany's there have actually been deemed illegal with amnesty international being ordered by the authorities to return his donations that hasn't stopped him or even given him pause in trying to influence the politics of a foreign country that is just another example. outside interference but i did use. go to church and it matters concerning where she is in the ocean surface recently experienced a few setbacks in hungary central european university which is very close to was unaccredited so what did he do to move it over the border into austria george soros
has no problem crossing borders moving money and creating a ruckus in order to further his political agenda the man has actually gone as far as to speak of himself in divine terms i admit i have always hob with an exaggerated view of myself and putin's to put it bluntly i fancied myself as some kind of good or an economic reform alike or even both to a scientist like einstein but all this talk of washington corruption and big lobbyists don't forget about the big man himself george soros is globally oriented and he has no problem going to other lands and telling people how to live their lives. r.t. new york. american journalist max of blumenthal believes that lobbying in the united states is a type of corruption disguised as a business. we get kind of a a cook narrative that leaves out the real source of corruption in washington which is our allies buying influence and taking american policy over the brink in the
middle east foreign governments are paying billions of dollars into think tanks. lobbying firms and even hollywood in order to curry favor in the us the term collusion can certainly be applied to this lobbying this is the story i think that everyone in washington is missing out on because it's considered business as usual and it's basically collusion only takes place. there's a grim new assessment of progress made by the united states in its drawn out mission in afghanistan government auditors say efforts have stalled at best and at worst are failing here's donald quote you think that after sixteen years the u.s. led mission in afghanistan would finally have something to show for its trouble well here's how the federal authority tasked with overseeing reconstruction sees it . between two thousand and one and two thousand and seventeen years government
efforts to save the license secure in contested areas in afghanistan mostly failed the us government greatly overestimated its ability to build and reform government institutions in afghanistan a pretty clear picture from cigar the top brass in washington though wants to assure you they have everything under control now looking at a twenty eighteen as president gandhi said he believes we have turned a corner and i agree. the momentum is now with the afghan security forces and the taliban cannot win in the face of the pressures that i outlined you think they're talking about two completely different wars but they've been at opposite poles before just last year cigar said the u.s. failed to properly mentor afghan forces let alone give them the momentum to beat the taliban with the enormous personal and financial sacrifices already made by afghans in their international partners the country my have relapsed to control by
extremists and terrorists and again us generals are reading from an entirely different script. afghanistan special operations forces are becoming the best in the region and the afghan air force is neighboring those ground elements there is more work to be done and it will take time however this remains a very very worthy investment failing or not u.s. military leadership doesn't seem to be that bothered about how much this war is costing either flashback to twenty fourteen cigar reported that afghan reconstruction had exceeded the true cost of the marshall plan you know the us is project to reconstruct all of western europe after world war two yeah it sounds like a budget busting hefty price tag for american generals though it's a necessary expense to get things just right for a victory we should be seeking to win this war counterinsurgencies take a while i think we have gone a long way to setting the conditions for what generally would usually is the
defining factor in winning a counterinsurgency which is to set the conditions for government so that the conditions for the rule of law set the conditions for economic opportunity go back farther to two thousand and nine and things already weren't looking so good then president obama had committed over thirty eight billion dollars to repair efforts in the region and that money was going to who exactly. our office also initiated preliminary inquiry. into twenty three allegations of fraud waste and abuse even then u.s. military leaders optimistically saw the situation as a great springboard for their military campaign i'm not prepared to say that we have turned the corner but i think we have made significant progress in setting conditions in two thousand and nine and will make a real progress in two thousand and ten it takes a lot to keep that optimism up all these years but one thing the us generals might have lost sight of is that if you plan to keep turning corners you'll end up right
where you began donald quarter r.t. . a year of cross cultural celebration between russia and japan has been marked. president putin and the japanese prime minister who spent saturday evening enjoying a performance at the world renowned bolshoi theatre not far from red square in moscow the two had earlier held a wide ranging discussions on several issues concerning their countries a bilateral relations i had also taken part in the st petersburg economic forum which wrapped up earlier on saturday and you know i'm with. you and that does it for me i will be back in about thirty four and a half minutes of the full of its new stay with us. when the whole make this manufacture consent to student of public will. when the
ruling classes project themselves. with the final merry go round to listen to the one percent so. we can all middle of the room sit. room for the real news room. for a world cup twenty eight team coverage we've signed one of the greatest goalkeepers of all time but there was one more question and by the way who's going to be our coach. you guys i know you on the us he's a huge star in months and the huge amount of pressure to come out you have to go meet the center of the beach with all we with you and we will show the great the great good you are the rock at the back nobody gets past you we need you to get the ball in the way let's go. alone.

a match you know what money laundering is highly illegal thank you so much kaiser of course. these we continue to discuss only about some amateurs of the maastricht. but the six bots i know we don't we are nothing to give to the next generation of reason for which to be proud to be utopian these is the reason all of us kept. i'd quite like a swimsuit but does now time. i. kill
people but. this is a special tent. it fills the freshly poured concrete from direct sunlight and rank . this section will be opened until the concrete has hardened enough. love on up all those little both of you will come up above that when you pull one of the of the president on. the concrete next is prepared according to a special recipe that has to be high performance concrete that's extremely stable in water. was a. little bit. larger ship with. their use here you're. liable for. what i think. anyone who's ever built their own data hasn't afraid of concrete.
or what it was or to do or did you know what will of the show for you when the book was both. still just ok i know you were sitting there having a laugh and thinking the risk was down there waiting for my signal to release a couple of dolphins but honestly the truth is much more straightforward lots of plankton builds up around the palace and that attracts fish and that you know what attracts the dolphins. it's little boy will furthermore the figure he'll. get. once again responses visits an answering or as he still failed to find the bride will try scientific approach like you do with local. there would. be joy because she died of course on what you're going to name two months arena just rashad adopting the strategy instead of scouring
crimea she should look for a bride here and some on. monday here at the last little if there's a little more sensitive to. your soup list there are more took a. poll on. point out so. you know. it's interesting you can you go to them and you put up a sky to just have seen a sinus light this is how vehicles board the ferry literally bumper to bumper it's a tiresome ordeal for us to have to wait in line for tickets then line up for inspection then again to actually board what they're going. after all that even in good weather and depending on how many cars there are the crossing can say two to three hours even though the actual sailing time is only fifteen to twenty minutes but if it's stormy forget it you stay ashore praying for
the weather to break. but i. just got your course right with one of us a little. fairies have the sarah bromance about them i really hope they keep going after the bridge opens. you know and i made it across the straits she's going on to moscow and all this and for shots in some are. all serene this prophecy was frights has finally found a bright schoolteacher called elvira. now they're off to sin for all people to shop for a wedding dress. it's a cost three hours to get from time on to kirk's because there was no queue at the crossing that. on the three and a half hours to simferopol that's almost seven hours in total but when the bridge opens for shots no fear i will be able to reach them for opal in half the time but
. look i think this is. the best the guy that i need love us. who is because it is too nice to. get us. some shook hands and. you know wolf just. to cut. that down was the kopassus one because most know. we're just not are there. let's look. installing the bridges which is the grand culmination of the project before the
arch was installed it was just two of the painted sections heading towards each other once the arch is installed it becomes a bridge bit on finished. both arches were built in carriage the railway arch was first to be installed the bridge builders did something quite unique. to shift the arch towards the fairway they laid it all to floating pontoon boats. the six thousand ton bill started ploughing through the water. here it's been placed over the void between the pillows a few hours later and it's lifted into place by a special giant's jex. looking to sell out it's hard to believe that man is capable of anything quite so grand.
just six weeks later the bridge builders pulled the same trick again with the highway arch this time. on the black sea coast to so well as home to one of crimea's most beautiful light houses just fifty kilometers from courage and surprisingly it still works and still lights the way for passing ships. because those guns and pistols people more still some more sort of a little more to look for would sure not most of you to see out of newark. but if you will not come up to your calls to look positions you've just hours to get out that look why don't. you. just another ten kilometers drive south from the lighthouse and you find yourself in the approximate reserve that we can see
incredibly beautiful salt lakes delightful babies and the mysterious grotto. itself variable man take. up the course across about ideals. and. the commune though. this is a broadly garment son teach me what email on. the shelf at the end of this is with you going to look because we. do have in the dark. cloud. by the by milton does that. so. it's a very important day for shots and it's there in the call for a muslim wedding ceremony. all of the shots relatives aunts sisters and brothers are here all of them. getting cold feet she's reluctant to leave the car.
with consummate con spec mosque and starry crane it's one of the most ancient mosques on the peninsula. some seven hundred years ago starry crim or caribbean as it was known then was the golden horde's administrative center. it's also the origin of crimea's modern name. this is the location rashad chose for his in the car. to be honest i've never been inside a mosque before this is just as exciting for me as it is for the bride and groom. i don't understand a single word but even so it's very moving. always
wanted to come here and winter yesterday there was literally a stall i can't imagine how the builders can stand this weather. i've been on the bridge for about ten minutes and my face already feels as though it's being caught in a siberian frost during a storm crane operations are suspended but today the wind has subsided and work is on the way to no no course. groups near. you when you will remove. or close. the bullshit. good they're worried about war from everywhere so.
big building a but if you just know both the colorful of both the most of the buckles look the. world war. the working men the canteen is sacred in fact it's like a factory all by itself. it is actually comparable to the construction site. is a typical lunch. one thousand and eighty liters of soup two hundred seventy kilos of salad one hundred twenty kilos of meat patties thirty kilos of humpback salmon and vegetables fried chicken forty five kilos not to mention five hundred liters of fruit cool deal you have to agree that's pretty epic. either washed or gritty in the country a few people can but here's stitching up or you get that only you can not figure what's next for you. business you mean your words not show some of those that are
strong. force you to push for what you feel because we were just a. canteen works around the clock breakfast is prepared at midnight lunches cooked in the morning from lunchtime onwards they make dinner and this is a continuous. whole issue. that would go into the. littlest ones up now of course the. motion of the worst form of pursuit does that for when used to never was cool church school nothing. lived up what would you do with your own little bubble of us which is one loathsome . bubble. is that your.
