12:06 pm
statement i have in common last night, claiming it was a suicide bomber that managed to detonate himself. at one of the checkpoints, security has been tightened in the capital and reaction to that. certainly when it comes to the taliban security, as one of the main, the only, i think hailing force that they've always said they would be the only ones to provide for this country. so this is what so important. this was a real sort of act of defiance to show that the suicide bomber could come to one of the main entrances of the mosque were senior leaders of the taliban were gathering . so this is now certainly a concern going forward for the taliban. and you know, there's been an increased of attacks by ice. okay, not just here in the capital also until about, but certainly the fact that they now seem to be operational here is a concern. i mean, remember, this is a group that are really, it's an insurgent group. they've been fighting in the mountains for 2 decades. they now need to run a countryman just now. we finished listening to a press conference from the passport office. women are being called back to work there because they're going to start processing paperwork,

reliant. we have also seen the president ceaselessly supporting the national army. we must come together as one and strengthen ourselves only then will countries that want to annex tie one, not dare to easily resort to force where the white house pro circuitry has urged bridging to bank gown. will we remain concerned by the people's republic of china's provocative military activity near taiwan, which is destabilizing christmas al miscalculations and undermines a regional peace and stability. we urge beijing to seize its military, diplomatic and economic pressure and coercion against taiwan. and we have an abiding interest in peace and stability across the taiwan strait ad. so i will continue to assist. i want to maintaining a sufficient self defense capability and let her know from drew thompson, who's a visiting senior research fellow at the league kwan new school of public policy and singapore, and a former u. s. defense upon official. he says that taiwan is responding cautiously and is
12:09 pm
willing to engage with aging. the flights over the last 4 days have been unprecedented in terms of their size and frequency of these large stories. and stepping them up over the course of the china is national holiday. and such, large flights really indicates that this is a political warfare effort and part of a massive coercion campaign against the leadership of taiwan and the time when these people. and it's part, i think, not just of a military campaign, but an economic, diplomatic and information campaign as well. unification is a key objective for president. she can ping, he stated as much. he stated in 2013 that this is a question that should not be left for future generations. president, sighing one has played this very carefully. taiwan half responded cautiously to this recent uptick can flights they've exercise restraint. so for instance,
12:10 pm
you haven't seen reports about taiwan fighter bombers flying in to harass these flights. you haven't heard about air defense radars being used to, to paint or to target these chinese aircraft in international airspace. so they've been showing restraint. and at the same time, president tying one is expressed very clearly that she is willing to engage with beijing, presuming that they can engage as equals and without preconditions. now then 14 percent of the world's coral has been lost in less than a decade. reports by the u. n. back to global data networks as more reefs are at risk of disappearing because of climate change. warming oceans are causing more carl bleaching events, and that's when carls on the heat stress expel the colorful la algae that live in that tissues and then die. so let's explore this further johnny's life from brisbin in australia. selina wat, who's a senior lecturer at the university of queensland and the academic director of haron island research station on the great barrier reef. selena would welcome to
12:11 pm
the program just to get an idea of, of the scale of this loss i understand equates to all living coral. it coral in australia. it is a staggering loss that was happening on this scale. very cybering data. i'm sorry. is it happening because the safe getting warmer and our emissions arising rapidly and the cars just basically on typing they are very sensitive to changing temperature that can be as little as one to gray above the average, some a maximum. it lasts the long enough that will cause a bleaching at eat. and the problem we had in the last few years is that we've had repeated bleaching events with an yes small gap between the great barry. we had sri bleaching events within 5 years. and carl's can recover and bounce back technologies i get repeated as souls. and so unless explore that a bit further,
12:12 pm
it doesn't mean that these reefs a dead and there is no coming back. there is an opportunity for these to recover, but what has to happen to enable that to take place but to now be recovering to take place. we need a few things. i mean we, we need some of the carls left there to continue to grow. and to re produce, but we need to have a spell where we don't have more hate wave sit in the water, but we don't have site plans or a crown of thorns cesta outbreaks or anything like that. it's going to further stress the habitat. so we need to have gaps between these events said that the carls have time to reproduce and produce more lobby that will come and settle a minute. corals, coral, after be late, king of 8 tend to be a bit weaker to say that can be outcome painted by ality. and you'll say with the they started in the report that there has been an increase in the amount of algae
12:13 pm
present. an albion carl's want the same things, they want lots of light said a competing his face all the time. so you want to carl strong said that they can at compete the ocoee. so you say that we need these things to stop, you know, extreme weather and warm yeah, oceans and so forth. but isn't a lot of climate change has locked in and therefore the chances of recovery for reflect this, it is next to impossible. well, we still have enough corals to lift to say the rapes, but we do. we would have to act very fast and we will have changes certainly i the time with the amount of hate that is there that we can't avoid. but we all hoping desperately that if we act dramatically enough soon enough to reduce our missions that will be able to have size carl's remaining carls recover and establish the res,
