1:01 am
son saying if i went out of the door they'd kill bulls must immediately instead of green opera child i come to clean cold stones and winters and warm stones and someone i could never you would wish this on and then me. well are they good morning just gone to clock here in moscow knew what. the alternative for germany or i.f.t. party is celebrating this morning because the immigration or skeptics came 2nd in states elections in brandenburg in saxony significantly increasing in those parliament so here's a quick look then. and their rivals platforms. ok
1:02 am
let's get some reaction now from our europe correspondent peter all of a joint morning. an important. day overall how did things pan out though in those elections. well there were say a win in brandenburg for the social democrats they retain their role as the largest party in that state also
1:03 am
a win for the christian democratic union in saxony they retain their role as the largest party put it the big story of the night house being the gains made by alternative for germany since their inception in 2030 they've never had these type of results but it since the 2016 influx of refugees and migrants into germany the switch from f.t. from being a strictly euro skeptic anti e.u. party towards being anti immigration nationalist party in some ways that certainly seen them drop support in these 2 states in brandenburg if they're picking up around 25 percent mark there in saxony they're picking up almost 30 percent so big big gains that have been made it's interesting to note that in saxony where if they made the largest gains but also home to the city of chemicals which in 2018 saw violent scenes following the stabbing death of a 35 year old german man
1:04 am
a 23 year old syrian was sentenced to jail for months slaughter just last month but following that stabbing there were huge violent clashes in the city with. very much an anti immigration bent to them it's interesting alternative of germany have picked up significant points there but for alternative for germany and now saying what their leaders are saying is that these results show that they're not just a flash in the pan on the german political stage. and that's not a given this is a sensational result we have achieved the best result in local elections ever and we can see that 30 years after the fall of the wall governments don't want to be left wing need the. the fight is not over the fight starts now we've become much stronger. no one can remove us from german politics in the movie we're staying. politics is quite keen on a bit of self reflection and following the announcement of the exit polls there
1:05 am
were a number of politicians in both saxony on brandenburg looking at themselves as to why they haven't been able to challenge the narrative alternative for germany. i am happy that we have a really good result what worries me is a result in this means we continue to face big challenges in this country. we all hope for more and wished for more and i'm also disappointed like many others are disappointed and question i as the lead candidate also share responsibility for this result well the election campaigns may well prove to be the easy part is putting together coalitions in both the states of brandenburg. looks to be quite a tricky thing to do as all of the other parties have said they won't work with alternative for germany that means there's going to have to be some quite conflict coalitions form they're bringing in a real broad church of opinion so that may rumble on for some time yet unless of
1:06 am
course one of the main parties decides to break with oath and says that they will work with alternative for germany doesn't look likely at the moment but it will see how long those coalition talks go on for. sure ok thanks peter that was peter all over there for us in. the u.s. department of homeland security is authorized migration officials to use fake social media accounts to monitor people seeking to enter the country but it does fly in the face of death it's to purge online networks of false profiles is done quarter explains. fake social media accounts the latest weapon in homeland security's arsenal the department's updated guidelines have officially made cyber disguises fair game for its agents the fraud detection and national security directorate is updating this privacy impact assessment to provide notice that officers may use fictitious accounts or identities on social media platforms to
1:07 am
protect national security public safety or to combat immigration fraud homeland security claims these fake accounts could be used to clean up the process of legal immigration detecting fraud finding weak spots and immigrations vetting system and conducting background checks are all listed as areas that could be improved and although communicating with other users is forbidden there's still one problem with the idea fake accounts used for surveillance violate the use its terms of both facebook and twitter it is against their policies to use fake persona and to use twitter down or for persistent surveillance of individuals who look forward to understanding u.s. c.i.s. proposed practices to determine whether they are consistent with the terms of service and might be against company policy but this isn't even a 1st for u.s. law enforcement earlier this year police stations the d.n.a. and ice work s'posed all for using fake profiles isis facebook personas were even connected to a fake university created to entrap illegal immigrants looking to study their as
1:08 am
they were exposed to facebook moved to delete those accounts law enforcement authorities like everyone else are required to use their real names and facebook and we make this policy clear in our public facing law enforcement guidelines speech over a 100 feet accounts is not allowed and we swiftly act on any violating accounts. but an internet privacy watchdog says the social media giant isn't doing enough facebook's practice of taking down these individual accounts when they learn about them from the press or from e.f. is insufficient to deter what we believe is a much larger iceberg beneath the surface we often only discover the existence of law enforcement fake profiles months if not years after an investigation has concluded facebook no they obviously they don't care about anything they only care about making more money and and blocking people who are doing good things i mean they abuse people's private information it's built into their system and they don't
1:09 am
want to do anything about it until someone holds them to account so thankfully the guardian pointed this out and then they they blocked it but how many things did the guardian not see and there are just literally thousands and thousands of these things that are out there ward unaided in authentic behavior is what facebook terms fake profile activity and since the 2016 election the company has been on an all out crusade against it i think to city matters because people need to trust that the content they are seeing is valid and they need to trust the connections they make or identifying and challenging 8 to 10000000 suspicious accounts every week we're also going to require people running large pages with large audiences the united states to go through an authorization process and confirm their identity over 2000000000 accounts were deleted in the 1st quarter of 29000 alone with fingers pointed at russia 1st and then iran and china later on and all the while
1:10 am
congress has been spurring on the assault your companies announced a series of successful disruptions that resulted in the removal of pages groups and accounts my instinct is to applaud the village him some of your security teams and credit you with taking the problem very seriously social media giants might find it easy to declare war on an authentic. activity it thinks might be going on abroad but when they know that their own government is itself using underhanded tactics to advance its agenda who knows if the same standards will apply but we did ask our facebook and twitter to comment on this story although so far we haven't received a response. so for 2nd day a vigil for the victims the most deadly terror attack in modern russian history is being held $334.00 were killed mostly children during a siege in which over a 1000 people were taken hostage at a school in the north of town of beslan down hawkins reports now from the site of
1:11 am
the massacre 15 years ago. september 1st 2004 was meant to be a day of joy and celebration for the children of school number one and hundreds of pupils parents and teachers gathered here in this square to celebrate the start of a new academic year things quickly turned to tragedy. most hostages were kept in this room in a sports hall some say the terrorists had no intention of leaving a life war releasing the hostages they lined the room with that itis and explosives
1:12 am
putting bombs on the walls. when one of them exploded a firefight took place between the hostage takers and police the walls barely standing the ceiling charred and collapsed bad testament to what happened here afterwards beslan is a small town a close knit community you'd be hard pressed to find anyone in this room that had lost someone or knew someone who had. the group and would you be every year we come here to the school and the cemetery to the cemetery every month even my sister in law is buried there with her 2 kids it's always sad when vigils unite people in mourning what happened here is hard to forget it but life goes on. what's left of the whole unites everybody here police and soldiers who try to save who could medics who ran into the fire to evacuate the wounded parents and teachers who stayed with their kids and people's hostages. the walls here were lined with.
1:13 am
flowers soft toys of course the photographs of those who died also bottles of drink symbolic as the terrorists had denied any food or water to the hostages for the 3 days of the siege but the time they had a chance to escape many were to the hydrated and weak to move hearing the experiences of those who were here is truly horrific as people inside began to faint dr lisa moments of our help whoever she could the terrorists gave her notes with their demands to pass on to authorities they threatened to kill her son if she made a wrong move yes you know i said i'm a doctor so they took me to the corridor to give 1st aid to some of the wanted terrorists in the gymnasium it was very hard to breathe most of the kids were running a fever in thinking they told the adults not to faint or they responding killed as a terrorist didn't want any burden i asked him to let me go and i had to carry
1:14 am
a message for them they let me come to the school entrance that they were holding my son saying if i went out of the door that killed both of us immediately. there is a story isn't the only miracle escape that day alina was 9 when she was seized along with her family she turned 10 the next day while still a hostage she sees her rescue as a 2nd birthday changing her life forever north but out on the move all know the blast wave knocked me and my brother back to one side and our ons turn other after the blast i open my eyes and saw the commandos screaming anyone still alive get out of here then they went with my brother to the clock room overheard the commanders say be careful where you fire there are kids here and then we went out through the window sometimes we need to in my classmates to visit the school for us there is life before and life after. 15 years later for many the memories are as well. or
1:15 am
as ever. some come here seeking answers is an explanation of how such a thing could have happened others simply light a candle and sharon and rice to get some closure all are united in one fact this can never be forgotten and can never be repeated i know holkins r.t. . well the memorial cemetery where victims of the attack are buried is known as the city of angels we talk to people there who are paying their respects. to those who share or a drunk will losing most nerds which in our muscles watch store sort of.
1:16 am

1:19 am
i'll come back when the us crippling student debt is one of the issues expected to dominate the next round of democratic 2020 debates over the years graduates have had to take on an ever greater financial burden while new changes to the law on debt forgiveness looks set to perhaps make the situation even worse more pain reports. trade war slows and global growth fans shaky afternoons on wall street have got financial outlets warning that a new recession or economic downturn could be on the horizon now that's bad news for everybody but for millenniums the generation of americans born between 190119068 could be fatal to meet dakota lilting he's
1:20 am
a senior at new school university entering his final semester this fall once he finishes and graduates he'll be out on his own facing economic circumstances much harsher than previous generations of americans if you look at these problems the fact that it's impacting almost everyone it's not just a question of someone else it's a you know countrywide and even continent wide problem the conditions that our parents our grandparents where they had good paying jobs right out of high school didn't even need to go to college get a trade school whatever and have no student debt and still be able to support a family it's just not the case anymore educational debt is a problem for millions of young americans adults ages $22.00 to $38.00 have double the amount of educational debt as gen x. ers the previous generation that came before this might be due to a 100 percent increase in the cost of college tuition despite the job market benefits of having a degree going down significantly also don't have much in terms of wealth and property net household worth is down 40 percent from the previous generation and 66
1:21 am
percent have no retirement savings less than 37 percent own stocks furthermore the median age of home buyers in the united states has actually risen to 46 because younger americans simply aren't taking out the mortgages and making the down payments people are working for wages people are underemployed people have bachelor's degrees and are working at mcdonald's putting weights on me before i even go out into the economy you know where it influences everything what kind of jobs you look for the job market you're looking into the wages that are being paid you know it's a lot that you have to think about when you already had 20. $25000.00 worth of stuff. with really nothing tangible besides a diploma to show for it that his economic gap seems to also point to a widening political gap younger americans seem far more attracted to the left wing figures like bernie sanders and they pay a lot closer attention to issues like income inequality people aren't making enough money people feel like they're not being represented if people can't get an
1:22 am
education without spending enormous amounts of money they're going to vote for you know their interests you know republicans acacia creased child care more infrastructure spending that would create jobs higher wages now donald trump says the fears about the economy are unfounded he's even said that the usa is having an economic miracle now all americans are nervous but one particular generation that never really recovered from the financial meltdown of 2008 they may not have very many houses cars or stocks but they've got plenty to lose. r.t. new york. the french island of corsica ny with people that are struggling to get onto the property that problem has become so bad that the head of the local assembly has even proposed banning norm residents from snapping up real estate on the island well under the plan sales would be limited to people meeting certain criteria only for example having been resident for 5 years well having been born on
1:23 am
corsica or having relatives completing their education on the island would be another way into his real estate scene we spoke to the head of course because assembly about this initiative he told this house prices driving corsicans off the . corsicans can no longer live at home by all rent because of the outside demand many foreign buyers are dramatically driving prices up today many of the sales to foreigners involve high value real estate that's rented out and commercialized that's unfair competition for the tourism industry who are paying their taxes and expenses limiting this type of sale would limit the situation the forces of course must combine their weight to demand negotiations in paris on the question of land and land dispossession there must be ways to stop it otherwise corsicans will be driven out of their country by the force of money well the idea is part of
1:24 am
a broader political agenda pursued by the separatists corsica liberia party since 2015 it's been part of the local assemblies ruling coalition it also wants to say to equal status for the corsican language and they were really supportive things political prisoners we can the silence islanders about those policies if young corsicans cannot access the land and real estate in corsica land is seized by people who do not live here this is not the society we want to build we do not want to have 80 percent of 2nd homes in corsica and corsicans agree with that proposing expropriation making threats is not the right solution. corsicans how to become homeless in their own country our people are ostracized based on the law of money residency status would help put a stop to this situation. the proposition that you do it remains to be seen whether this residency status could lower prices however it is necessary to work on the
1:25 am
very sensitive subject of real estate prices which affect the majority of the corsican population who want to continue living here. and that brings up the site so far this morning here and we're back again as usual in just over 30. people. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy foundation let it be an arms race is on offer and spearing 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.
1:26 am
as it is is a sticker from the water bottle phone in the stomach of a fish the brand is part of the coca-cola company which sells millions of bottles of soda every day the idea was that let's tell consumers there are the bad ones there are the litter bugs are throwing this away industry should be blamed for all this waste the company has long promised to reuse the plastic. as soon. stay at a special projects funded. online you guessed that is the end of it for the team but for now the mountains of moist only grow while.

its founding of the u.s. . still just a dream or does help spring eternal when it comes to beating the curse of aging having haunted us for centuries as a solution is finally within our grasp ducks are brave the gravy and the anti-aging paneer and the chief science officer and co-founder of sensible research foundation is my guest today. through the ages humans have strongly come to be mortality and now with unprecedented technological leaps we might finally have a chance at the longevity of biblical prophets but how can science achieve the seemingly impossible will ever lasting life only be available to the rich creating a permanent population divide the. cycle of life and death lead to catastrophic and
1:28 am
unexpected consequences. dr operate a great anti aging pioneer chief science officer and co-founder of sayer search research foundation welcome to the show great to have you with us so what you propose in order to reverse aging cleaving the organism all the junk that accumulates terror on a cellular level so tell me the gist of it why will that stop the wearing of time on my organs. well it's not quite that simple what we propose. we keep people healthy. repairing oh of the body go through itself throughout the course of its normal operation. of the thought that you just described essentially the accumulation of wealth both inside. the spaces between. for example from time simply we have to many of
1:29 am
a particular type of. misbehavior or you know because we don't have enough. good time cells die and they're not necessarily replaced automatically by the division of other cells furthermore the damage to. the structure the kind of lattice of proteins that holds the body together which is called the extracellular matrix so as you can see there are many different types of damage and we have to fix them all now i work at sense research foundation is exactly that we are focusing on many of these things because we know that they all need to be developed and applied to the pit people all the same time in due course and in a few cases the rest of the world is already understanding this and focusing well on them so for example of course there's a huge amount of stem cell research going on worldwide but the reason we created the foundation was because there are plenty of other areas which were very
1:30 am
neglected luckily we've made lots of progress in that so now everyone's getting much more excited about it and this is like a very general description of what you do where you strive for a better one how does this look technically like what do you do is it like a potion that huge afternoon ourself or what is this that you're working on well let me answer that in 2 ways from the point of view of the person who's going to be receiving these therapies and also from the point of view of people like us the researchers who are developing them from the point of view of the person who's going to be receiving them they will just look like that you like no medicines delivered by injections or perhaps with bells in some cases the maybe surgery involved. into the what is being injected or introduced however it's going to be very very complicated lots of different components to it we'll be doing stem cell therapies we will still be doing gene therapy is where we introduce engineer viruses into the.
