10:08 am
and that's the main public hospital in bay roots is good to have you with his doctor. just start off by explaining how bad things are in your hospital. well, the situation is really critical. we have been suffering from electricity shortages . our for the past 2 weeks have been quite severe before we used to get only 2 to 3 hours of that day. now we are only getting 2 to 3 hours of electricity per day. so we are relying heavily on our generators which are running almost non stop. the problem though is that fuel is hard to come by and we, it is becoming very difficult to sustain the current status. how do you run a hospital on just 2 hours of electricity per day? logistically, that seems, that seems impossible. well that,
10:09 am
that is indeed impossible. and that's why the syndicate of hospital yesterday raised the alarm that we cannot continue like this. and we are putting lots of patients in harm's way, especially considering that we are seeing the surgeons in the number of new cases yesterday, live and reports with one of the highest number of course case it's been several months and it's clearly that our ice use are also receiving motivations. so electricity now is more that the content and we always hear about crisis in lebanon . lebanon's at a crunch point. they were all was warnings coming out. it's about die, or the situation is if anything different this time around. i mean, are you expecting people to die or in your hospital? because of the way the situation stands? you know, i think that for somebody who grew in lebanon during the civil war and so on,

10:11 am
pharmacists selling all state subsidized drugs to make a profit. i mean, how do you see this, please note what solutions are you calling for? or do you think the state basically have the collapse before it can be rebuilt? let's hope it will not come to that though i must say that it is difficult to have visibility on the medium or long term. at the moment. what we are doing is day by day our, by our, you know, our generators, our stores, huge stores have sufficient fuel for sometimes one or 2. they only, and we have to plan. what did they, as they said, you know, i would and see how it goes. it is unfortunate that you know, we don't have any medium term plans, and it's unfortunate that the government doesn't seem to have one either.
10:12 am

a day on top of painkillers and sprays. not surprisingly, it can leave both him and his wife. jane exhausted, a crystal who take his tablets in the morning that he takes a whole lot in the evenings. the difficulty is that there are so many kristen command become a little bit discombobulated. now we live together. so as a cara, it's my job to ensure he takes his tablet, but i'm only human, especially on, on progressing as while. and i'm getting a bit difficult to, to manage. so one chocolate would be much better than done jane trying to do it $810.00 times a day. every day in britain or my 600 people develop dementia according to the charity out time as research u. k. said the research going on in the lab could improve life for hundreds of thousands of people. what doing, hey, with 3 d printing has a wide range of potential applications, but at the heart of it as a simple idea, how to tailor the products, whether it's medication or
10:27 am
a device to the individual. if a poly pill does become reality, the ideas for it to be produced locally, possibly it's a community pharmacy with a relatively cheap printer that could mean slashing transport costs for low income countries and saving many more lives. nadeem barbara al jazeera nottingham or us congressional committee has been convinced to discuss the dangerous space. february is becoming a real concern. as more and more private companies loan satellites into the worth orbits. it's estimated there are well over 100000000 pieces of orbital space every she have returns. he has the details. expect a object to be moving from work to starboard in front of the vehicle. a tense moment on the international space station in 2012. with the crew, sheltering and spacecraft in case of evacuation mission control tract and approaching piece of space debris sanity. which is
10:28 am
a good use in the event passed safely by the i assess what to use at the thrust is at least 26 times since 1999 to avoid space debris. not that the space station is escaped. collision is, this is the world's left at a window by a piece of debris, a few thousands of a millimeter across in 2016 at each collision crates. yet more de brief. it's estimated that there are well over 100000000 pieces of overall space debris. the remnants of past missions and the funk satellites, and the technology to remove all the space junk is still an early stage, not to mention a regulatory framework that all space faring countries feel that they can trust. how do you get an satellite out of orbit? you use a magnet clamp use printing it with a harpoon, you get it in a net. ok, and it's into this already crowded, unregulated orbit. and some 46000 new satellites are expected to be launched in the next few years to the 4000 already in space. yet there's no single independent
10:29 am
entity governing or regulating all the space traffic. i'm to say that's one of the reasons why the rest of the article and in case regulations are eventually imposed . and already there are warnings, for example, the brightness of mosques, space, x, or satellites. seen here several hours after launch may mean the end of astronomy. such is the light pollution. but other congressional hearing in washington, d. c. there was another bleak warning. right now we're on track to have a major collision in lower or bit roughly every 10 years. and that's, that's problems only getting worse and worse. currently, there's no way to make a private operate a shift. the trajectory of south life is collision seems imminent. in fact, we don't even have to be transparent about where the satellites are any given time, where this is the hearing, agree that something needs to be done. if catastrophe is to be avoided and speak or to speak, it was that the us capitalized on its position. if we don't have united states lead this, never,
10:30 am
then other individuals or entities will. but it was clear that even as participants spoke with us is potential benign leadership in space. so that is also so americans, technological dominance, as a key instrument of us power projection against other sovereign states. what can satellite industry do to help make sure that companies trying to not continue to do what they're doing to try to stop communication and as soon as you go, we are in charge where, where the, the lead country in space, you switch everyone else off and you fail to get an agreement on with no geopolitical trust for now. it's market forces that govern space. she ebert, mc al jazeera washington. ah, this is al jazeera and these are the headlines with the opening ceremony just iras
