private companies that have got a lot of v.c. venture capital funding are ready to go public this year i saw the list they're all going out of forty fifty sixty seventy billion dollars valuation so the prediction here is that it will be the end of this cycle you're going to have a two thousand and one style crash. due to the fact that there's nothing to support the valuations of these companies and very quickly crash.

international a wall authorities in japan face a public backlash and the results some of the results are a friend of mine u.s. military bases all in all can all too american women are helping victims of sexual assault by u.s. servicemen dr perry told us why she thought of the group. the reason that i wanted to create survivors you know and it's because it's been my feelings for him through we went through i was so lost i didn't know where to turn for help i didn't know who to trust i did you know and you know what answer what questions to ask i didn't
9:19 am
know what to search for i feel like you know the military justice system is clean it's. and it has not caught up with the times today to be able to accommodate the cases that we're seeing in to adjudicate successful age adjudicate cases that we're seeing this is this is not a negative light that's being shown on our military and that's a positive that we we don't want misbehavior happening. if it's on the military bases located in a densely populated area its host larry hall for american troops stationed in the country locals have been outraged by the behavior of u.s. troops they've been involved in multiple crimes over the years the u.s. and japan have been helped and the weights have a way to move the base to for more than twenty years and many people want the base off the island altogether.

just. it's human nature in any institution in any culture and there's going to be battles and unfortunately there are bad apples in the united states military just like there are in any other military in the world and. if these crimes are committed against foreign nationals in whatever country they are our military station and i want them to know to be able boyce that these these survivors of abuse sexual abuse by our service members it occurs have a voice and if they have somewhere to go and they can pursue justice just because they were sexually abused by the united states military member does it mean that
9:21 am
they have to stay silent if they don't want to you and i do understand that not everyone wants to pursue justice but at least they can know what their options are what their rights are and. decide to they can pursue justice and. cannot be scared to do so. new polls suggest the findings of special counsel on alleged russia collusion aside little effect on americans on sunday the two year long investigation concluded that there was no sign of a conspiracy between america and president the kremlin according to the poll almost half of those surveyed to some extent believe that trump or his team did collude with russia during that twenty sixteen campaign opinion was split if democrats in congress should continue digging into trump including those ties with russia or any investigation and finally an overwhelming majority said the findings of the moon report haven't changed their minds at all we spoke to people on the streets of new
9:22 am
york to get their opinion. do you still think that trump colluded with russia. yeah yeah he's a traitor i don't trust their report my don't trust any of them because ultimately . it's a conspiracy. to make america races again they're all around trial but somehow trump isn't involved it just seems strange to me people don't like him because he's a rich guy well what is the media been saying about it for the past few years it's always been a clue that he's definitely clued into these everything loaded and therefore comes out he has excluded everyone still believing that so happened the main stream press has completely given up. standards in reporting this story i mean the new york from the new york times to washington post to c.n.n. and especially in this in d.c. . the other news networks and the have just been all over at each other trying to beat each other with the latest rumor and. including this

9:24 am
resolution four nine seven thank you should you been slow to side steps not only one of the norms of international law but also the security council resolutions we are concerned that this unilateral decision not only complicates the prospect of a fine and comprehensive settlement in the middle east by pleats to instability in the region and trumpet administration apparently wants to show some generosity towards israel we would suggest the americans not to lay their hands on what is not theirs the us itself is in doubt with a vast expanse of land so the americans could get the israelis north and south carolina for example why not south carolina is a great piece of land why not give israel a state or two if this administration really wants to have israel support their golan heights either it will always be either heard of sovereign territory we thank
