uprising in kenya and earlier this year former prime minister treason may describe the 1919 massacre as a shameful scar on britain's history in india when troops fired on unarmed crowds containing some nationals protesters and killed more than a 1000 people according to some indian estimates but again her words were not seen as a full apology or we spoke to a maori rights to says the wording of these expressions is absolutely crucial. it's not an apology and it's an expression of regret and so those are very particular words that have been used and the british high commission has reclear she was not speaking on behalf of the british crown to the actual ones that seat james cook a lot i think great britain would be the exception to seeing the vanguard of imperial expansion as as being heroes i mean this is the same for many european
5:16 am
empires they here are sized their activities and they got to write the history books and my price themselves as the vote but to say and an expression of regret which is literally a non apology that it's impossible to know what really happened when there are numerous accounts they have slight variations but they all agree that these people were unarmed and were killed for the sake of demonstrating supremacy we know that it happened. facebook founder and the world's 5th richest person indeed mark zuckerberg has made quite a surprising statement or were considered by agreeing with us presidential hopeful bernie sanders that billionaires should not exist with the much maligned donald trump at the helm of america it raises questions on whether or not the rich are becoming an oppressed minority killam open investigation. billionaires pretty much rule the united states the president himself is
5:17 am
a billionaire but apparently he is the most threatened and bullied man in the country he has turned american diplomacy into a cheap extortion racket let's be honest donald trump is a loser all his failed 'd businesses trump cares about exactly one person and that one person is named donald trump i'm sorry that you're a terrible president. well perhaps but the bullying of donald trump has very little to do with him being a billionaire billionaires almost live in a parallel universe with elite parties private jets and little islands that they own but apparently some billionaires feel like they are a persecuted minority it's the ordinary people that are persecuting them led by a boogie man named bernie sanders. billionaires billionaire billionaire billionaire billionaire billionaires billionaire i am not a billionaire due to all that class hatred incited by bernie sanders the rich are forced to hide in fancy restaurants and the studio of the fox news channel is no

ungrateful rabble who levy taxes against them but average americans just don't buy the argument seems that when the ultra rich claim the world has been unfair to them they don't really know what fair means kaleb up and r.t. new york day 20 most katon this is all too international ahead of the great well sold by face control in front she going to image sky i mean home call his musk self the protest is that. the world is driven by a dream shaped by. the

a face mask that comes into force saturday the emergency measure to restrict face coverings resulted in violent clashes on friday when protesters smashed windows and set fire to the city's metro system and dozens of shopping malls will be closed today it's the 4th month of violent demonstrations of the territories against beijing's policies they started in opposition to an extradition extradition bill that would have allowed suspects to be taken to mainland china for trial bill has since been drawn. picture perfect in france it's set to become the 1st european country to roll out a nationwide i.d. program using facial recognition technology presence among them across has been pushing the initiative despite a barrage of criticism about privacy concerns in paris charlotte dubin ski for us. your face is your passport it's a saying that's becoming more and more reality in the modern world we may already be used to the idea of facial recognition to access off smart phones or even
5:23 am
certain apps but how about the idea that governments are now moving in the direction of using your face as a means to access your digital information as a citizen so that could be services such as taxes and social security without there being any alternative that's exactly what's about to happen in france it seems it's set to become europe's 1st country to use facial recognition it's caused syria monks critics who say the id program dubbed him his premature and they've also raise concerns about its privacy the processing of the personal data which reveals racial or ethnic origin political opinions. prohibiting. the development of this technology unprecedented opportunities socially beneficial to use a. serious threat to human rights and civil liberties most notably the freedom of
5:24 am
expression the freedom of assembly and association the right to privacy and the right to a fair trial. i listened an acronym for certified online authentication on mobile will be rolled out in november according to the french government it will enable any individual to prove his or her identity on the internet in a secure manner but how do people here in paris feel about it uganda's force people like. not even getting a choice in the us and they get to do one thing and then if it's really rough it's true that it could be dangerous i don't know much about it i think security is more important. it doesn't bother me but i don't have a choice i think people can already do that with social media there's also been concern that this could be the celebrity slope to facial recognition biometrics being used by c.c.t.v. i mean every move that you make could be entered into
5:25 am
a database and that's already happening in countries like china the french government though insists this will not be the case here and it says any footage to use facial recognition will be raised within seconds but those assurances may not be enough to persuade people given that state security standards in france have already 'd been breached earlier this year it took a hacker a little over an hour to break into a secure government messaging app so many are perhaps concerned that all technology is pregnant will and that their information could fall into the wrong hands big brother is watching you and soon you may have no choice but to let it show if you can ski r.t. paris. this is so for the son of a so much more about he don't come here most coke what is kevin all instances of thanks for what should have a great weekend and stay with us if you come much incoherent after the break.

or this is the kaiser report we get into it like you probably are used to so if you're not used to it get ready stacey hey max well you know what we have a topic today that is right in your court and that is i know you used to be an options trader on wall street so we have some stories from the options market and the topsy turvy world where the black in shoals formula was supposed to get rid of risk it was supposed to help separate risk and reward this paper was published in 1983 the black initials options formula and negative rates are rewriting the rules of modern finance negative interest rates have quite literally broken one of the pillars of modern finance as a columnist and such a banker as weigh the pros and cons of sub 0 rates and their impact on the world traders have been contending with a rather more mundane fundamental issue how to price risk on trillions of dollars
5:30 am
of financial instruments like interest rate swaps when their complex mathematical models simply don't work. right now the black themselves model didn't get rid of risk that separated risk from reward so i make the analogy to the atomic weapons or the atomic power of the whole idea of einstein's discovery that energy equals mass and by understanding that you could create an atomic weapon that was based on a fusion exciter oh so in the financial world. the black controlled model basically pried open risk and reward and you could trade risk separately so in the options market which followed only 10 years after the us you can trade an option that has no intrinsic value at all just has implied value based on.
