and therefore should be my resignation to. the. world war two stroke to look pretty world for my movie for the red baron it's my pleasure 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 gregg's it is in particular because the lords keep rejecting him 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 scrutinise the laws that they are trying to pass. here's something you may not expect to 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 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 clean muscles were placed in it more than a dozen locations and three of the areas were later confirmed to be contaminated waste water management can't filter out the opioids and while muscles are unable to metabolize the drugs other céline can and can therefore become addicted now 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 u.s. now there has been more than two hundred thousand prescription overdoses deaths rather in the united states 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 policy researcher andrew clagny thinks that overprescription is behind the epidemic. the real problem is not that you can detect oxy code and shellfish the 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 they're 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 increase prescribe in the way we did in the united states i'm afraid that they will follow in our footsteps. claims that u.s. military personnel interrogated detainees who had been tortured in a secret prisons in yemen has seen congress vote to demand the pentagon investigate a u.n. report says suspects at the sites were exposed to beatings electrocution and sexual
violence some were imprisoned in a metal cell in direct sunlight others were denied medical treatment. and there are reportedly eighteen 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 now those prisons were reported on and and beth the geisha by the associated press let's take a look there are 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 questioned the 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 the
united arab emirates denies being involved in running secret prisons in yemen and refutes claims of being linked to torturing suspects political analyst marwan osman says 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 so civilized 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 was 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 a selected district attorney candidates in california at the same time which documents revealed he is also spending millions on an anti bridget group in the u.k. a mop and box now of how far the billionaires sphere of interest extends. 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 is the out of state billionaire funding no with phillips campaign not telling us you know what phillips an ethical 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 and anti brags that group in the u.k. we've got one mission and that is to try and stop breaks in 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. the activities 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. in their own question. soros recently experienced a few setbacks in hungary central european university which he's 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 and divined 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 a scientist like einstein with 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 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 u.s. 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 and its drawn out mission in afghanistan government auditors say efforts have stalled at best and at worst are failing here's donald quarter. you'd 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 in two thousand and seventeen years government efforts to save the licensee cure 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 ahead to 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'd 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 unable in 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 this 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 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 governments set 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 inquiries 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 u.s. 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 by 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 two had earlier held wide ranging discussions on several issues concerning their country's bilateral relations. have also taken part in the st petersburg
economic forum which wrapped up earlier. as you. have a dozen for me i will be back to top the hour with a full true stay with us this hour to introduce. her. about her sudden passing i've only just learned you worry yourself in taking your last wrong turn. you're out caught up to us we all knew it would i tell you i'm sorry suddenly i could so i write these last words in hopes to put to rest these things that i never got off my chest. i remember when we first met my life turned on each breath. but then my feelings started to change you talked about war like it was a cave still some are fond of you those that didn't like to question our ark and i secretly promised to never be like it said one does not leave
a funeral the same as one enters my mind gets consumed with death this one quite different i speak to you now because there are no other takers. to claim that mainstream media has met its maker. that i'll be here. much as you have to. get it out here. hi. babe it doesn't build up a lot of the old vic to tell you the other side of the lock on the can. by then guffey fish on the nod that they. buy there is a shift that while. a study they're not a set of course is going on more. serious certainly
not so. than the notion was. if you have to go to the pope multiple injuries among countrymen to soak the keeps a few most of the look but shows real you know most of the. books on a few months of a papal social services say yes but i don't know there's a book in a moral sense of what my. own image of nothing of. a floodlit on a casino how i do something that will save what's left on long enough something not said it. was not allowed to struggles with my friends that's what i can now maybe maybe i'm not in for that's. what holds its institutions we do. we put themselves on the on the big get accepted
or rejected. so when you want to be president or injury. or somehow want to. have to go on to be for us this is what will befall step three of them or can be good that. i'm interested always in the waters of my knowledge. there should. i've played for many clubs over the years so i know the game inside i. football isn't only about what happens on the pitch put the final school it's about the passion from the fans it's the age of the superman each kill the narrowness and spending two hundred twenty million on one player. so it's an experience like nothing else on to because i want to share what i think what i know about the beautiful guy a great one more transfer. and thinks this minute.
there let it be said. to see. behind. me is that it would look for the source of the most yes if you believe those lists. this piece to internet please focus obviously so. if you look closely you have come to mt to give you the inside story on one of the biggest engineering projects of our time trust me i won't leave
a single stone unturned. you for the book were in your new york. but the sheer scale of this construction project is so much present here a few numbers the construction site is divided into eight parts one each one piles up being driven in the time the sound of the piles being how much into place has become the construction sites true it will be to. loosely it would be usual here when you use what the judge doesn't fire to you. on the spirit of our i was born in curch and have a small house here so i'm a real crimean local that's why i really do have
a vested interest in the crimean bridge. while nikolai tells you all about the project of the century i'll show you some of the amazing parts of crimea that you've probably never heard of gets made a few locals through well basically i'm going to show you my crimea. yes there are for sure but i. threw the get away that insidious. might well be the only girl in crimea who drives a long haul truck she lives in yes the turia and from there she regularly travels to moscow i'd. like to hear what she has in a. way that they should make sure the ocean that. let's take a look at the map is crimea. there's curch and some others here. that's where the crimea bridge will be built two bridges reli one for trains and another
road bridge here's where the ferry service is based off cause to quote crim. this might look at a place to build a bridge but in the winter strong currents here would push up against the pilings much harder than on to spit so this is a lot safer. to be honest i'm really more of a tourist here. these guys around me are the real heroes. while seven am and it's time for a check up. working men are no stranger. to medical checks at seven in the morning was negligent in any construction site is by definition a danger zone so they do everything they can to minimize risks. including the with. their love for you notice.
this is on sabrina shall be my guide here and some on. here and with you. when you get what. you want more you. just look at. on serene i used to teach english and made a little extra cash by selling odds and ends up some on markets but now she's retired. onscreen a sister lives in curch but they don't get to see each other too often to visit her sister aunt serena has to go from some on support of cards then take a ferry to crimea and then the bus the current if there had been a bridge the whole trip would take no more than twenty minutes in the end on serene at the side of not to make the trip but instead to be the welcoming host herself.
this is rich shots on serena's neighbor who's just dropped in. your work to go. forward more like to thank you guys who look up who. think you are ethical. when their incomes are literally just going to be like most time on women on serina as well a part of a witch really does and yes it's business. because if you've. never done. that. are you going to get. in or is this worth of this is what an ordinary time on software engineer looks like rashad keeps chickens ducks and sheep and his recently built a big house. his parents live with him to the for in fact the only thing rashad
doesn't have is a wife when he finds one she must be from crimea. to shots taken his aunts to crimea because the promise to set him up with a nice girl. does not that mean that it's about the most about that but it's not just about what about it she was. up there such that is just not stuck. to what i know very well what's there a construction site. this might just look like a simple piece of metal but it really has an important element in bridge construction. like this that welded into the piles that will support the a normal white of this bam off it coordinate through storms abstracting ice. and then i take a quick pit stop. this long. lazy god is no one.
here knows. honestly i know nothing at all about wheels and bolts but luckily she doesn't just know about it she can actually do it it's not your underwear do it. all the shots in his songs are almost village. and introductions to the potential bride are bouts of begin. and this is one of. our tradition dictates that young people. should only meet if they're chaperones on hand it may feel a bit off court but tradition is tradition. that the young couple successfully should do so for a cup of coffee it's time to go home. for my dearest girl that's more than i'm
going to use and you sound like i was. the right look i was i'm going to use force against someone who worries. about is easy going to stand when couples look back and like me i guess you. bring into your great new that if you could get that meant there would be something about it because it is good only until you're going to have a corking their sister is not it is a. look at that beauty. of industrial. gathered up a little in female play you just switch the machine to the new sling the go as soon as goes the least you see is that people smile that it's still does a smothered. here. store but it's just in will. go away yeah because that's because
it's. each day more than two hundred pieces of construction equipment and a fleet of multi twenty four autographed hard luck on helping no less than ten sell some stuff. never before has there been a project on this scale in russia. she and a scientifically modify do business and belief systems in the future industry in the
one nine hundred ninety s. . brian todd taking that and nights and what does not have to do with g.m. . was just. almost. like it's a chemical plant least killed we. assume the most likely move through is like the beer is free. they say and the runs are possible damage. can occur teaches scientists truth victory in context really awful on the human race to science servants to world free of g.m.'s in crisis eight which may even be able to sleep cost the points of never send. for a world cup twenty eight team coverage we've signed one of the greatest goalkeepers
of alternatives but there was one more question and by the way it's going to be our coach. guys i know you are nervous he's a huge star and the huge amount of pressure you have to go i mean eight percent of the beach probably with you and you'll see all the great the grid is good you are the rock at the back nobody gets past you we need you to get the ball going let's go. alone. and i'm really happy for drawing down for the two thousand and three in the world cup in russia. the special was. it was all to. me to just say the radio p.r.t. teams latest edition make up a bigger than a better jersey book.
