just twelve euros fifty per month. flying high for twenty years the international space station celebrates. research. and learn its achievements both in orbit. british university tells lecturers to avoid writing. words in case it makes.
1:01 am
rehired among the major u.s. restaurant chain the center of viral video store for refusing to serve a group of black men they paid upfront for their. every year tuning in from right around the world welcome to our to international just here in russia's capital this tuesday morning you know neal. this day twenty years ago russia launched the first small international space station into orbit now is the third brightest object in the night sky and the largest ject in space.
1:02 am
from the crew on board right. we are proud to serve in such a ship. the international space station is a unique scientific platform. you don't usually speak of the looked silly presumably if course must. as you would over a smidgen of. a stun see. both a green hosts and an aquarium and witnesses more than a dozen sunsets every day the international space station is one of mankind's
1:03 am
greatest achievements in our modern world but how much do we really know about it let's take a closer look in three day the station is the fight it into two major parts one is effectively russian the other american however there's also japanese and european scientific modules so you can see details here let's move to the russian segment which currently has four docking ports marked in red that's twice as many as the americans each segment consists of several smaller modules which is how the whole station was initially put together a lot like building a giant lego model the russian segment for example has five of them however only four modules can host the cargo space ships coming on board the i assess efficiently allowing them to dock at any available port at any time currently three of those four docking ports are occupied one by the soyuz m.s.o. nine which recently docked at the module the ship experienced an early which slug.
1:04 am
it was fixed by the crew another docking port is occupied by the cargo ship progress only nine which is stationed at the piers module and on sunday another ship the progress m s ten docked in the heart of the russian segment the module carrying two and a half tons of cargo ranging from science equipment to air and fuel will this area is probably the most important for those onboard it contains the life support on flight control systems also we can find the living quarters for three crewmembers a conditioner to maintain the correct. even a kitchen table in short it's the russians living room. other modules of course are equally important but. most of them serve as storage rooms and also a life for space walks and docking and there it is a short glimpse into the russian segment however the this isn't really about the
1:05 am
russian or american sectors or even the space station itself the name of the game is global cooperation platform for countries to night as one which so far hasn't been possible to do back here on earth in space we are all allies. says has been a busy host more than two hundred people from eighteen countries have visited the space station over the years it's become an example of close international cooperation not least the beacon of warming relations between two bitter cold war rivals yourself the russia u.s. friendship developed to the moon and back.
1:06 am
so you would ski american ski just enough to get the experience that you let it beat you. from stuck to your yeah. you more. than that in the. commission or if you need it would support it think of i think the population rather better or for your real. difference if this was to her girls all these years i could sit there all it's iraq we are all for our brother for what.
1:07 am
they were cutting new ground he said well gosh let's see if we can build a bigger space station and what can we do one of the problems that might come up when you learn. some more money interesting and doesn't just give you more in them some this new ideas for falsely media literacy will mean. that you suddenly choose the media you need to know the truth and simply to look at the scene stealing your least fifteen similar. we have to make sure that have not always been from. the
1:08 am
head of the police not. the other here we've actually put together. for the future together. yes i'm going credible memories there well living in close quarters in zero gravity means some pretty clever designs for the modules that make all the i assess it down off being given unique access to the simulators where future astronauts get to grips with their home in space.
1:09 am
for two decades the international space station has been the most visible physical testament to man's dream of space exploration and like all things space it began as a small step which eventually turned to become a giant leap. in a way the international space station is the largest lego puzzle in the world because see it wasn't moved into orbit in one piece at first it was just one cargo module this is the exact replica of it its name in russian means sunrise and indeed it did become the dawn of the i assess as we know it's. this small jewel of a star is more of a living space there's a cubicle here a dining space also there's a docking simulation area as well where cosmonauts practice their sole use docking
1:10 am
skills but some things i didn't plain sight because this is an actual space exercise bike the first person to enter the us says it's part of expedition one was this man sergei krikalev jr fishman you got the moment when we dealt for the first few modules was one of the most memorable in my career if you sorry was just floating around in space while we had the u.s.p.o. unity attached to our shuttle a picture of the two modules together became a symbol of a new era as nobody could tell where it would lead. during that flight the crew watched on from orbit our earth and to the next millennium since then the icy. this is grown into a sixteen more dual station roughly the size of a football pitch imagine old trafford certainly. the first both russia and the united states sent crews into orbit but since the demise of the shuttle program
1:11 am
culminating in its and in two thousand and eleven it's just be in russia. we got as close as we could to russia's workhorse rocket the saw use during their journey to and from the international space station this is the module where crews spend hours of their time and i mean it's not very spacious it's actually looks small even for one person while it is designed to fit three inside it's a real work station there are no random things here to mourn it is just to showcase all sorts of technical information about how the rocket is doing indicators buttons but the most crucial the buttons that attend the most crucial commands they're actually hidden behind small covers like this so they have to be lifted so that they are not touched or pressed by accident or. among these buttons there's
1:12 am
one that might seem strange command to depressurize the cabin to let all of the air out even while the ships in orbit it so that the crew can put out a fire because this button is extremely important it has additional protection this small screw up when the rocket detects a malfunction meshes lights up on this board among them this one particular ball which we pretend to ignore it says rocket failure is this top left one it turns red in the alarm goes off for twenty years this station has been home away from home for adventurous visionaries overachievers risk takers people of action it's instilled a passion for discovering the unknown in our generation so that when its life cycle ends mankind's business is way beyond that first step into earth's orbit biggers dawn of r.t. . and it's the speeds that get me the space station orbits the earth once every ninety minutes or so that means the crew sees sixteen sunrises and sun sets well
1:13 am
the director general of the european space agency explain to us why it's important space exploration isn't bound by political partners. space has a big advantage compared to other activities because it's a buff national borders mean this is possible as i assess i always said let's open the hatches of the i s s or to other states world right but still the hitch is not open for each and every country and therefore some countries especially china is now developing their own space station which i think is not the best solution i still would like to see them working together but maybe in the post. we will reach that goal. we have in our convention that we are doing space for exclusively peaceful purposes and my wish is
1:14 am
of course that we are not moving into any type of star wars or having military actions in space that's not necessary base would be for me always and buff these sleep problems in therefore i hope that we will really together work for peaceful use of space we should not move the war into the orbit. corporation in space even during times of crisis is for me i'm asked the question is very important to bridge crisis this is important because we have only this tiny various which is very fragile and we should better secure this tiny jeff i'm very happy that even at these times we can launch european astronauts american astronauts japanese astronauts canadian astronauts. of course also russian cosmonauts to get to the international space station and they are working together in the station and when they move from the russian to the american part of the
1:15 am
station they don't have to have a visa over them. having the right down to earth now and studying at college can be a taxing time but one british university things it knows what's really stressing and students lecture is writing to them in capital letters now as imus is here to explain. the journalism department at a university in leeds has been considering avoiding using capital letters when giving assignments to students the reason it might make the students a bit too frightened or upset the memo says any lack of clarity can generate anxiety and even discourage students from attempting the assessment or to generally avoid using capital letters for emphasis and the over use of do and especially don't they also reportedly suggested warm and helpful terms am to avoiding negative instructions the university told us it was guidance from a course leader to academic staff and said it was proud of the personal and
1:16 am
inclusive experience it offers on campus however some staff members have dubbed this nonsense saying students are being treated like kids so let's find out what students think about all this do capital letters make you anxious. i think i'd feel a bit tight. here do capital letters make you actually. have a letter as you know. i am a student cups of letters don't make me anxious but i got an email the other day that didn't have any capital letters in it at all at all did that make you anxious it made me feel like the person who wrote it didn't really put the effort into writing it like it doesn't take much effort to pressure if to begin with the sentence is fine balance when there are none you're also kind of what we've seen cases to avoid offending students before most recently. in manchester a student union voted to replace clopping with what's known as jazz hands in order to not disturb students with anxiety or sensory issues yes i and at the
1:17 am
university of kent a student union issued guidelines against outfits that threaten others rights to a safe space that included dressing up as a mexican a priest and native american a cowboy and even the tory students need to be resilient they need to be treated like adults when they're over the age of eighteen they should be able to deal with small letters capital letters instructions and anything that comes out them if they can't deal with something like this then they're really not going to be prepared for normal life when i was a teacher there was a couple of years where i was told we shouldn't use red pen because red pen is an angry color and it might make students feel frightened and this was completely ridiculous it's really taking things to an extreme and it's really undermining just the normal everyday interactions that people have and that's a very very bad thing. there is much needed rain on the way to california which is
1:18 am
suffering its longest wildfire season in fifteen years it's also the deadliest the us states ever suffered as more than six hundred forty thousand hectares of land burned. the schools control the sea with several of the statements on the wildfires and fear visited the town of paradise california calling up pleasure a couple of times each thing that comes out of his mouth he is easily the most flammable president you assume that should have been or wait what about the argument you wouldn't have the fire was breaking the waves i think i saw this in the south park episode again would like him to stop with this raking stop. the climate change climate
1:19 am
change in climate change climate change and the changing climate will force in every way we can does not stop climate change those who deny that are definitely contributing to the tragedies there were no witnessing and move continue to witness . direct to them a jew weapons are real only governments have them and they're setting fires in california all government has turned against its people isn t. for setting the california wildfires. the news continues in ninety seconds stay with.
1:20 am
good politicians to you shortly to. be put themselves on the on the big get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president or injury. or something i want to be rich to. have to go right to be cross with what the for the three of them or i can't be good that. i'm interested always in the waters of my colleagues . there should. show some same wrong all right old roles just don't call. me old yet to say proud disdain you can't get educated and in games from an equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart. just to look for common ground the.
1:21 am
twenty minutes into the program welcome back american restaurant chain has found itself being dragged through a viral video not for a moment you refused to serve a group of black men unless the pre paid for their food bosses pockley mexican grill swooped in with discipline reaction until new information emerged the scale up and explains outrage filled social media after the manager of the trip was caught on video refusing to serve a group of black customers unless they could prove they had money to pay. never mind.
1:22 am
the reason lawsuit one of the customers said it was a racist he said she's asking me for proof who income is if i'm getting a loan he apparently racist manager was fired this is triple a statement regarding what happened to the simple restaurant the manager these gentlemen with the same customers from choose to you know who weren't able to pay for their meal regardless this is not how we treat our customers and as a result the manager has been terminated and the restaurant being retrained to ensure that something like this doesn't happen again but it turned out that the manager was not being racist lawsuit ali indeed had a history of ordering food that he could not pay for in fact even brag on social media about dining and dashing social media users were up in arms the manager apparently did nothing wrong now supposedly seems to be hiring her back but the outrage did not end many see this as an example of how corporations are so afraid
1:23 am
of bad publicity they don't seem to care about the truth. i. media relations department and she claims you were aware of the tweets at the time of the firing they need to approach data more information more thoughts before the axelrod i wouldn't go back to work for the plot that she thought i would go back to someone else that's crazy it doesn't mean honestly i don't have much of a column because it's kind of like everything else that's going on people are just assuming based on how you look and not really taking the time to ask a question now with all the twists and turns in this story we actually reached out to chip away for a final statement here is what they got back to us with firing back and apologies included with spend the last few days reviewing the evidence available to us regarding the incident based on our review we have a fatah manage a job back while our normal protocol was not followed serving these customers were publicly apologized manage of being put in this position well it turns out that shockingly
1:24 am
a short video clip isn't always enough information to know what's actually going on however there are lots of americans who want to scream racist instead of getting the whole story they will blow up and r.t. new york a political and social commentator on to me brian logan believes that cases like these only diminish real fights against racism was like this story of the little boy who cried wolf you know you always cry wolf and do never be you wolf and in one time we do cry wolf and the wolf was day or nobody came and then you got you know the same thing is going on here people left allegations of racism out there oughta time and that a certain point it becomes not effective people say oh ok another episode of racism so where i don't care but when you keep having episodes like this to come up people don't really know if it's a real a case of racism an allegation an overreaction nobody really knows so racism is so becomes less important therefore things can happen and nobody really cares and i
1:25 am
hope this way should happen if you pull a will be a lesson to people that want to engage in just. for allegations out there there is no always sure and sometimes you should just think for a moment before you say something about when they may or may not be to guess move it is first. facebook has found itself embroiled in more controversy this time cuban rights activists have revealed how a teenage brian was auctioned on the social network that he betrayed looks at the platforms ethical it's misses. it's twenty eight seeing we're well into the twenty first century but in south sudan you can still buy a teenage bride for a few hundred cows three jeeps and ten thousand bucks this isn't from a fresh ad on a billboard somewhere in the sudanese savannah the auction and wedding are done and over with and guess where the bidding happened on facebook any form of
1:26 am
human trafficking whether posts pages ads or groups that coordinate this activity are not allowed on facebook and so they took the auction posts down good job facebook just one problem like i said the wedding dress had been worn and it took days and days for the tech giant to act now this is how the family tried to impress the bidders by pitching the girls height the kids of the winner are guaranteed for n.b.a. slots and among the competing want to be husbands are said to have been local government officials they need to be suspended from their office and have reason full of it in this ng also meet the needs to be held accountable that a girl could be sold for marriage on the world's biggest social networking sites is beyond belief. yes most of the activists siri was about how an entire online auction campaign could happen all facebook's radar so let me give you
1:27 am
a quick reminder of some of the do's and don'ts on the network facebook is off limits to you got it fake news and it's up to some mysterious fact checkers employed by the tech giant in america to decide what's good for you to read and what's not also among the stuff that's been banned by zox people are posts featuring the paintings of peter paul rubens because of nudes in them even though he's one of the most remote artists of the seventeenth century or this story on the starving children in yemen by the new york times for the same reason and that case concerns over facebook's image posting policies at least for some while outweighed concerns over a disastrous famine in a war torn country well we'll see if they're as alert next time someone tries to sell a teenage bride for cattle the response from facebook is oh we took it down as soon as we found out but clearly the implication there is that they still despite you
1:28 am
know so many similar stories of things that shouldn't be on facebook being on facebook for too long as far as i can see so far there's been no concrete answer from facebook as to how they're going to show that this doesn't happen again and for it to have been out there for days while this whole gruesome process was completed. seems you know it's a mystery something that should take much more responsibility for and spend more of the profits are not actually making sure the platform is safe and is no abuse to the sake of human trafficking. if you're on the go this tuesday why not get your news on the move with the r t up next here on our to international making the business world digestible it's been.
1:29 am
china economy in the last fifteen years is different then other countries emerging that were once emerging economies that became big economies like the united states did the same thing they were export exporting it with unfair advantages until they got big and then they transition to a consumer economy so china and britain before then did the same thanks so china is just following history and now they want to become a big consumer economy and so far so good. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy confrontation let it be an arms race on all fronts clearly dramatic development only mostly i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time to sit down and talk.
