12:07 pm
the last 7 years we told them numerous times and we're still telling them the solution is to bring democracy to syria the solution is not for the user to use to go to europe or for them to stay in turkey and unfortunately the partner was ignoring us and now i think they are starting to take us seriously. a hotel has collapsed in the south east of china with more than 40 people reportedly still trapped under the rubble emergency services working at the site say they've managed to rescue 34 people at the moment there's no information about any potential casualties according to local media the hotel is being used as a point site for suspected coronavirus patients but you still not clear at this point what led to the collapse. meanwhile the number of confirmed corona virus cases worldwide has exceeded 100000 the virus is not spreading politicians either with the leader of italy's ruling democratic party testing positive and in iran the

virus has claimed its 1st fight fatality among lawmakers with over 20 more m.p.'s infected as well that's all as the world health organization has warned it's still premature to predict when the outbreak will start to decline. we do not know yet what the activity or the behavior of this wireless will be in different climatic conditions and it's a false hope to say yes it will just disappear in the summertime like influenza virus we hope it goes i would be a godsend but we can't make that assumption over the past 24 hours for more cases have been confirmed in russia bringing the total number in the country to 14 all 4 of the newly identified individuals had recently visited evilly and authorities say they've traced all those who had contact with them and are putting them under medical supervision many more around russia who have visited virus hotspots have been put into quarantine r.t. russia has this report on how the country is handling the situation.

the man who was russia's 1st patient came off a flight from milan we now know that the virus is in russia and an epidemic may have started the effects of which are difficult to predict. here it is a very interesting virus if the cells into thinking that it contains something beneficial and the cells accept it. if you feel unwell ice difficult to breathe should you go to a hospital you know you need to go all 3 or one or 3 medics will come and assess the situation if they find out that the patient has a serious risperidone infection and has been in risk areas then the basement will be taken into quarantine. i went to competition in italy where there was no app demick at the time a few days after i arrived back home to russia i started to feel well now in a new municipal hospital in moscow while originally started from the initial infection we are from to spread to all provinces here at the moment of the specific
12:10 pm
moment when i understood that the situation was serious it took one or 2 days on the 22nd of december i was out with friends the next day i wanted to go to the city center of my friend told me the metro had been closed. but those that you want to entry true but it was shot everything was closed to me and the 144 people were evacuated to 2 men from on their arrival they rule examined by specialists. how is it that so many people who spend so much time at the center of an epidemic have not been infected 144 people were evacuated and not one of them was infected why. the probability of infection from this new coronavirus was high but restrictive measures have been taken firstly limited movement around the city secondly wearing masks can frequently washing hands. the main recommendations for avoiding infection 1st of all good care of the nose and throat this means rinsing
12:11 pm
and don't be lazy rinse until you feel your airways are clear. thousands of spanish students have brown laid in madrid against sex education plans by the right wing vox party demonstrators chanted feminist slogans and carried banners denouncing the so-called parental veto on a box this proposal parents would have to give permission for children to join a school workshops perceived as ideological classes on sex education gender and other issues like climate change so far only one region has introduced the plans it's been condemned by the national government but local authorities are refusing to repeal the move we will not do it because it says the government does not believe in the world we believe in namely the freedom of fathers and mothers. a homophobic family does not have the right to make their children harmful because well parental authority cannot be confused with property. in the u.k. to l. g.b.t.

education has sparked a furious backlash starting in september classes covering the issue will become compulsory there and that has triggered protests among parents particularly from religious communities look at the issues up for debate. i think is absolutely right that parents do have a right to teach their own children according to their beliefs but the education system has a responsibility to give children a comprehensive education and to give them information to safeguard their health and welfare to say that the state must come in and muscle in an area which parents be doing extremely well for thousands of years is just simply it's not good for the primary responsibility in fact rest for the parents and parents do have the right to opt out of of sex education a majority of parents think it is the responsibility of the schools to do that they are happy and content for that and if you look around the world in every country where there. anti sex wars and low cost sex and leisure bridge occasion

the levels of teenage pregnancies and abortions are much much higher michael as long as he's close is a thoughtfully and they're not indoctrinating children what what's the problem here are the programs which encourage more knowledge and more explicit knowledge were completely and utterly counterproductive whereas those which encourage abstinence people waiting so that they you know they gauge and sexual activity when they're ready or mature those were the ones those were the programs which were seen to be the best for teenagers uganda a long time ago abandoned sex education and went for abstinence only to discover young people having sex the end result was increased teenage pregnancies and rocketing levels of a child. a pairing what happens in this country uganda is comparing apples and pears completely inappropriate comparison i would suggest ever since we have seen the introduction of sex education in this country as something which is compulsory
12:14 pm
since 1983 unfortunately there has been a number to go to disaster which has happened in this country we have seen as t.d.'s and teenagers and young people go out to see the potion grow up we've seen all social indicators of things that happen to young people have risen in relation to sexual matters it is proven throughout the world that early good quality age appropriate relationships that indication does actually work what the educated the people who know what they're talking about and they've studied this going back for decades that really the. waiting and respecting yourself these are these are the programs which work best are the most healthy which lead to the best and most prosperous society and what ultimately what's in the best interest of every child. as billionaire as michael bloomberg and tom starr quit the u.s. presidential race critics have suggested their focus on spending money rather than discussing their policies played a part in their stand up explains russians are at it again and of plotting to
12:15 pm
purchase another 4 years of presidency for trump or at least this is the reality star is living in. donald everyone knows that in 2060 rush aboard the election for you we're not going to let the happen again i'm all in to defeat you in 2020 if you don't know who tom styer is or what's so great about him don't worry many americans don't know either he's a failed run for the democratic nomination and outrageous spending on his own campaign style as bid to topple donald trump is backed by his fellow loser mike bloomberg who spent even more trying to buy his way into the hearts of voters the sum is so offensively large in fact it even had emerson b.c. confused somebody tweeted recently that actually with the money is spent on every american dollars i think ratable way of putting it it's true it's just irving well
12:16 pm
it's a lot less disturbing if you get the math right quick arithmetic lesson guys $500000000.00 divided by 327000000 is roughly $1.00 well dollars not 1000000 this aside though style and bloomberg combined spent more than the $750000000.00 on their campaigns before super tuesday that's more than all other democratic candidates combined and as much as the entire hillary clinton campaign officially cost back in 2016 including primaries and the had to had with the trump yet all these guys zillions failed to secure even one delegate for stare while bloomberg got $61.00 and in case anyone from emerson b. c.
12:17 pm
is watching it's math time again and that's more than $8000000.00 a delegate you clearly can't buy the election. but if you're completely out of touch with the american people if you are so arrogant to spend this amount of money it's it's not going to get you very far the democratic party which is the party of billionaires and corporatists and and large banks and what have you joe biden being that a credit card or banking candidate they like don't like their their followers their voters to notice because they try to present themselves as the party of the people obviously they're not but so they would probably like to keep that under wraps and while joe biden is excited to have these wallets now poor ng money into his campaign it's difficult to say why according to the mother reports russia spent an unbelievable $100000.00 on online ads remember in tom's style as well that was enough to buy from presidency his hundreds of millions of dollars didn't
12:18 pm
even get him a single delegate not even a nomination so either that's some one hell of a money management skill or maybe just maybe someone's policies just aren't worth a penny some invisible mysterious russians who spent a $100000.00 on facebook ads a $26.00 team which somehow got the president elected well now we've got mike bloomberg who spent half a $1000000000.00 on ads that look at everybody going to spend that money and he could have paid donald trump to leave office not i think the president would he could have bought american samoa. still ahead disney cuts a popular character from its remake of a lot of our concern details after the break.
12:19 pm
the world is driven by a dream shaped by one person of those. who dares thinks. we dare to ask. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy foundation let it be an arms race off and spearing dramatic development only closely i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time to sit down and tom.
12:20 pm
welcome back with the craze of rebooting traditional cartoons continuing to snooze back in the spotlight for giving my lawn and me too friendly make over saskia taylor takes a look and her weekly diary. did. diary you know me i'm generally a patient understanding person but really there are only so many injustices one can suffer when the live action remake of everyone's childhood favorite sleeping beauty dropped i thought yeah i'll give her a chance imagine my shock when a war is awoken from her sleep not by prince philip no not you but by molestus and
12:21 pm
herself no come to this he. apparently was problematic because it didn't consent and maybe the prince wasn't how one true love a knife in the back of my childhood and then the time classic cinderella came and while it makes me so anxious just thinking about it but naively i still thought that disney could possibly destroy it well it turns out i was wrong just how many injustices in 100 minutes fosli the mice don't get to speak only they do is hang around waiting for the fairy godmother to turn up and turn them into coachmen i know what such my sis behavior i mean you're basically a little slaves. then prince charming got a very on regal dressing down and got renamed kit heaven forbid we have any magic
12:22 pm
romance of gallantry left in the world also you'd think that with 65 years to come up with a new name they'd have done it a bit better as a side note not sure why prince charming gets a make over but it's still ok for cinderella to be stitched into a course. in the blue dress it was particularly tight when i was trying to dance i didn't have the capacity to breathe to support the physicality and so i had to keep taking breaks and loosen in the corset then a latin materialized flying carpet and a genie in a cave yes please i was still clinging to the hope that the cinderella saga is just a teething problem no now princess jasmine it always been a favorite of mine is such a bad ass the princess turning down this handsome prince is left right and center but no that wasn't enough for disney they just kept telling make her sultan you want to be sultan. has been preparing for this my whole life now i watched all
12:23 pm
that and i stayed silent but normal because now they've come for the jewel in the disney crown they've come from milan and her disney match. i mean no one could possibly take issue with the shining the serious army captain could day i think particularly in the time of the me too movement having a commanding officer that is also the sexual love interest was very uncomfortable and we didn't think it was appropriate who saw me not as an equal who respected her as a warrior who's not just one of these princes swarming around in his fancy costume but can actually fish with his bare hands. oh sorry who built a friendship founded on respect with before ok realized he quite liked are you telling me that the shining is being detached i know your out but kid gets to stay
12:24 pm
home but no that wasn't enough for those brutes it disney you know the iconic scene where milan chops off her locks. poof gone bob i know i mean i really i just don't know how much more i can take. i would have told you you're also counseled. spoiler a lot don't worry though that still the little man made puns so i'm sure disney's got some great plans to ruin those for children all around the world a regional council in the u.k. has been accused of spreading transphobia over international women's day celebrations with more on the story here shania edwards. international women's day is coming up it's a day to mark the struggle for the right to vote and the fight for equal rights but this year the run up to march the 8th has been inadvertently embroiled in a trance rau certain council liverpool has been pressurised into removing flags
12:25 pm
being flown outside its town hall is simply red woman noun adult female and while that might be the definition in the oxford english dictionary it's been deemed trans phobic the flag flying at the moment is a hostile trans phobic dog whistle recognizes a symbol and brand of one of britain's most outspoken and visible trans antagonists and leader of the trans phobic hate group moments later the flags were removed but the council saying it didn't realize the controversial messaging they were being asked to display we have been made aware of a potential issue regarding the messaging on the flag and southport town halls and have taken them down we have a proud history of supporting l g b t q plus rights across the borough we continue to support all members of all communities and want to look like international women's day had been cancelled later they decided to reinstate the celebration replacing the old flag with a different one we went to find out if people really find the statement on the flag
12:26 pm
offensive why would it be offensive if you like. just because you have a flag that represents women and doesn't insult anyone else. empowers women i think it's a woman. definition of. i know it probably needs to. take a lot of political things to talk about a woman i don't think there should be a label and i don't think there should be a definition genders all religions or anything but the problem i have is with the word transform the word phobic means that one has a fear of something i don't think that's the case and i don't i think the word is being brandished around is issued. you know 2. sets of other agendas well one the time to build on it seems like you can see on the bridge anything without offending people or at least having opinions polls apart this is
12:27 pm
a very subjective a very relative issue it's an opinion based where you call it flag offensive on a tweet because it used the dictionary definition the problem when you give in because of anonymous or angry tweets when you give in you give that platform power nobody should be giving it power to any voice that is meant to silence for wrongful reasons and so we don't want to give those voices any more justification just because they don't like something because then it's going to cause everybody who wants to shut down a company shut down a cause or shut down any kind of truth or opinion that they don't agree with it's going to give them more power to continue to lambast in these defamatory slanderous remarks on twitter and social media which has been very very harmful to people we have now been entrenched in this culture of fear where everybody wants us to be afraid where we cannot say anything and what that does when there is such
