the leaders of the u.s. and north korea this week held their historic summit on tuesday as a success saying it laid the groundwork for the potential denuclearization of the korean peninsula donald trump ounds kim jong il an agreed to establish new relations between the two countries as well as joint efforts to build a last thing and stable peace process part of that commitment would be the complete denuclearization of the korean peninsula that's an exchange for security guarantees from the u.s. the agreements also aims to recover and repatriate the remains of american prisoners of war. we have developed a very special bond. north korea best not make any more threats to the united states they will be met with fire and fury and have mad men out there shooting rockets all over the place you will have no choice
but to totally destroy north korea rocket man is a sick puppy. a frightened dog barks louder i will surely indefinitely tame the mentally deranged us doted with fire. this is true is proven over and over again and visitors can indeed become friends both very honored to sign the document thank you. so the today we had a new story meeting and decided to leave the past behind so we're very proud of what took place today and it worked out for both of us far better than anybody even predicted it's an honor to be with you.
the world's k. players were quick to respond to the talks china said history was made at the summit south korea also held what it sees as a new way forward and the foreign policy chiefs at the meeting showed that they need clear eyes ation of the korean peninsula was achievable japan's out however said pressure needed to be kept on the north until concrete steps towards disarmament was seen. well the singapore summit saw trump promise to guarantee the north security in exchange for its denuclearization young might have reason to remain wary of explains what's not to like a new nuclear disarmament deal potentially one less country with nukes where all
bets are off all of us and we have this truly historic moment on film you can. believe you. can. so why does king jr seems to suspicious could be anything poison assassins or trump just waiting to backstab him the united states will withdraw from the iran nuclear deal come to think of it america's nuclear deal to seem to last exactly as long as the incumbent president take the rainy and deal brought obama his partner has worked on it for years so much work so much effort just for trump to tear it all up
don't forget obama negotiated directly and one of the worst disasters the dumbest deals ever negotiated except don't feel sorry for a bomber just yet george bush his predecessor also struck a nuclear disarmament deal with gadhafi the two leaders discussed this agreement should help to bring a painful chapter in the history between our two countries closer to closure. it worked gadhafi gave up his nukes and what does a bomber do well he goes in bombs gadhafi is army alternately allowing the rebels to gruesomely murdered him we came we saw them died. it's almost like something out of game of thrones and we aren't even done bush in turn screwed over bill clinton started roll back north korea's potentially deadly nuclear program we'll continue to implement the agreement we have reached with that
nation get smart it's tough clinton had worked for years to make a deal with kim jong un's father to prevent then north korea from making a nuclear weapon and bush tore it up as seems to be tradition north korea is a regime arming with missiles and weapons of mass destruction while starving its citizens states like these and their terrorist allies constitute an axis of evil trump is one for tradition in fact he has a habit of tearing up documents memos papers when he's done with them he had a bunch of guys at the white house whose job it was to piece back together the people he shouldn't have torn up literally had to spend hours per day. piece together the puzzle taping and here we are

a nine year old are calling for its ban we had no idea when we let her play the game of the said dick to nature or the impact it will have on her mental health this is a serious issue which is destroying our little girl's life and someone needs to step in to ban it before it becomes an epidemic the developers behind fortnights have yet to comment on the incident it's not the first case of gaming addiction however the world health organization has already classified the condition as a mental disorder and said many are addicted to video games we put the issue up for debate with psychology expert gina loudon and former hacker john suffer. son he's fourteen and. she plays for him and i see him played a lot the great thing about as i see him interacting with kids all over the world there are lots of ways to communicate with people around the world other than video
games and our children are losing a little bit of a site as to what's real and what's maybe virtual i think video games are paul of all coaching now the story that broke recently of annoying your old was how to have because of being informed on and we don't blame the parents i don't blame the children become puter games on bond i just don't see the use of them i don't see how they're productive there is such a tendency to spend so much time on the computer at least that studies show that the more time they spend in front of a computer or on their phones the more likely they are to have depression and other mental disorders it's been says studies by the university of california for example in twenty fifteen well computer games are actually being found tarnishing increased memory especially in three d. games there are many ways to increase memory certainly pen to paper or pencil to paper all sorts of memory games that you can play with a book think games also can teach them you know what you can maybe they can be good
to be for. being sensible you know if your kids on it for many many hours and there's a problem if your child runs a boss a couple times i was going to be a problem so it's just about moderation i think it's just sensible use of the toy interacting socially though is really important thing that children are losing you know they start to feel like their friends live in their computer when indeed those aren't real people those aren't real friends that are in their lives especially with children in their in their young formative years for their brains are still developing with the increased risks of mental problems because of it i see no reason to you know make video games part of that when they're just all together not . a humanitarian boat carrying over six hundred refugees has docked at the spanish puerto valencia the vessel was turned away by italy and malta sparking a major migration route you can see here some of the migrants disembarking to the
past few hours now they'll be assisted by aid agencies before spanish authorities begin assessing asylum claims france has also offered to take in some of the people rescued after the french president criticize rome's decision to turn away the migrants. there is a degree of cynicism and irresponsibility in the italian government's behavior with regards to this dramatic humanitarian situation well that remark ignited a diplomatic spat between paris and rome with italy threatening to cancel bilateral talks the french ambassador to the country was also recalled and asked to apologize . the french ambassador has been summoned by a foreign minister on behalf of the italian people will ask for an explanation for the inside was directed not only against the government but also against the nation which is among the first in the world in terms of generosity solidarity and hospitality because the french have the humility to apologize the story will be
closed and we will work in the interests of everyone. the humanitarian vessel that was turned away by the italian authorities the aquarius was carrying six hundred twenty nine migrants those on board were rescued off the coast of libya a week ago and were hoping to disembark in sicily before being refused entry well italy has been one of the countries that has been hit hardest since the beginning of the my current crisis more than half a million people have which the country by boat from north africa in five years in two thousand and eighteen alone thirteen over thirteen thousand migrants have disembarked here that's more than either spain and greece keith best from the european council on refugees and exiles says the e.u. has shown itself incapable of finding a common flu shot into the crisis. i think there has been a serious failure among many of the countries of the european union to address this
issue and particularly the itself in not being a fair burden sharing i i rather hope that the stance of the new very new spanish prime minister will begin to shame other countries in europe and say well we should also play a part as well but i do understand the attitude of the italian government in saying that we've already born an enormous influx of people who are real answer to migration flows of the migration crisis as it's term is to try to enable people to live in their countries of origin you you have to actually try to ensure through diplomatic and international efforts the peace at home for people so they don't feel the need to flee for their lives. and world cup special coverage with peter schmeichel and andy farmer start the top of the hour so to stay to.
of welcome to worlds apart extra this is an addition to our regular show in research focused on the people behind the star is if asked to name the most a process soviet the russian leader joseph stalin would like them to be among the first to come up the great terror of the nine hundred thirty still haunts this country lets millions executed was sent to the gulag what is much less known is that barely a year before the purges. stalin sought to well for the lack of a better word democratized the soviet society and the society pushed back against it this paradoxes of soviet power came to life thanks to the work of an american academic from maryland who were found here in northeast russia almost nine thousand kilometers away from the old lines they. are.
samantha long is an assistant professor at the state university who's been teaching here on an almost six years in the morning she's trying to expand her students' english vocabulary by discussing beauty and fashion in the afternoon she scours the local archives in search of documents which shut the light on a much happier subject the early years of this. i wouldn't be surprised to find a graduate from the state university teaching at the university of pittsburgh but i think the opposite is still quite exotic how did you up here well i started writing my dissertation on the one nine hundred thirty six constitution and when i looked in the archives in moscow there was just an overwhelming amount of material so i needed to focus on the region and one of the regions i found
a lot of material from cure of funding was a little bit difficult to come by it's not necessarily the most sexy topic you says no to sex a topic but i think it's a very counter-intuitive topic on many levels how did the idea pop into your well there's a difference actually how i came to the constitution and stalin seem like two things that shouldn't go check out there so i wanted to see what this was about how serious a project this was whether it was really just a propaganda. exercise as it had been described or if there was something a little bit more substantive now the stalin era is one of the most extensively researched areas of the soviet history and it's also the one that comes with a lot of accept the conventions. this was strictly to tell a tear in state where everything was decided top bottom line here you are coming out with a book suggesting that stalin actually tried to encourage what he saw at least as genuine political participation why would he need something like well russia is
very very big and at the time it had incredibly poor infrastructure and very few members of the communist party in rural areas to govern it so governing desirous empire of the soviet union and modern russia has always been difficult simply because of the expanse and the fact that the population is not densely settled russia has a very peculiar relationship between people in power and it's usually assumed that the leadership suppresses the people's demands for rights but i take it from your book that in the case of the nineteen thirty six constitution it was actually the other way around that stalin was actually more liberal and progressive society could take yeah i was quite surprised when i was looking at particularly hevia scorpius which is the right to. be billeted to have rights when you stand trial to .
