8:02 am
and long is companies have not ramped up the supply of oil quickly enough to meet to the math. the reserve holds a one month supply at current us consumption levels. it's intended for dealing with supply disruptions caused by things like natural disasters, not for managing prices, but the white house has been under pressure to tap into reserves as gas prices continue to rise in the u. s. leading to falling approval numbers in recent months for the president. the biden administration also says for the 1st time it has coordinated similar releases from countries like china, japan, and south korea. the united kingdom says it will allow oil companies to voluntarily release their reserves to help supply. biden is also cracking down on gas companies who have been enjoying lower oil prices in recent weeks,
8:03 am
but not passing savings on to americans. that's why bash the federal trade commission to consider whether potentially legal now competitive behavior in the oil and gas industry is causing at higher prices for consumers. the bottom ministration touts clean energy as an alternative to costly fossil fuels. but the u . s. infrastructure is nowhere near ready to achieve that goal. my effort to combat climate change is not raising the price of gas. all eyes will now be on opec plus countries, which include saudi arabia, other gulf nations, and russia. they must decide now how to respond to this latest move. there is a big risk for them if they get the production numbers up too high, because they're not sure what economic underline economic growth looks like. a fight for control of the global energy market could now be underway. opec plus officials warned of a potential response if president biden and other world leaders tapped into their
8:04 am
reserves. opec plus is scheduled to meet next week. kimberly, how can al jazeera the white house and one how it works at the center of global energy policy at columbia university. he says, is not clear if the move will have much impact. was very conspicuous about this strategic reserve release is that it does not involve the i, he is such, this is the 1st time this happens in the past that there's been several god, it releases in the history of the own market. all of them have been under the auspices of the idea. this is not the case this time many a year. countries are not participating in this. the itself is not participating. but you do have countries that are not part of the i, you know, that joining in the really, so it's a very new kind of event in the market. as soon as the announcement was made today, the price recovered,
8:05 am
some lost ground and went up and it is not clear that it's going to work out badly because this is a problem. the strategic reserves were designed to tackle disruptions in supply reach. the price is not up because of a disruption in supply today, because the producers are not ramping up to play very fast, and the amount is recovering, perhaps faster than expected. so there is an imbalance in the market, which is driven by supply management policies. and by the strategy of all companies, not buy one of disruption, and it's not clear that this move, we will address this imbalance. the release volume is not very high either or really a bit less than what the market expected. what health organization is wanting that could be and now the 700000 deaths from coven 19 in europe by march, italy right has been dabbling since late september. to write a virus, patients in the netherlands are being transported across the border to germany, to east pressure on dutch hospitals. weekly infections here to way hold on tuesday

how compete should be handled. there were no sanctions to the violations. on sunday, venezuelans voted to choose mayors and governors across the country. they, you, mission was invited by the electoral council and by the opposition who agreed to participate for the 1st time in 4 years. the report by the european union of servers is for many a 1st step towards the dialogue and future elections in this country. but they report also indicate that even though the elections happened with efficiency, the whole process was affected by lack of independence in the judiciary. and also lack of respect for the rule of law, something that affected the equality and transparency of the process. the government says the actions were an example of democracy, the ruling socialist party, $120.00 of the $23.00 governor shaped the opposition warning the total national vote. even though 60 percent of the population did not participate. divisions
8:23 am
within the opposition prevented them from winning more states opposition leader emily got pre less as the election was not defeat now c, c o o d 80. let us also position up then them once about this is a best assault on the last 17 years. we never did these resolved before, the opposition of not falling, who was falling as muddle. the big defeat is for the government. i can honestly say nicola, my luis, desperate to regain international credibility was a murder, though, if i don't think i remember nicholas madura was willing to give him more governorships in exchange for validity of the electoral process and himself. this is not a transparent election from the perspective of a liberal democracy. it begins with the electoral council that has 2 members out of 5 of the opposition. we celebrate those 2, but they are a minority. can you imagine any country accepting that? then his will is trying to recover from an economic crisis. but sanctions from the
8:24 am
united states and the european union complicate the government plans. protests and sanctions have not been able to force motherhood are out of office, which is why the your position is back in the polls. very so i'll just see that tech us a jury in the us state of georgia has wrapped up the 1st day of deliberations in the trial over. it operates death. demonstrate has gathered outside the court in brunswick. they calling for the 3 white men, accused of chasing down and killing, operate to be convicted of murder and 25 year old black man was choking through their neighbourhood when he was shot dead last year. graphic video of the incident was late online. the prosecution made a final pitch for conviction before the jury began that deliberation. dismissing the defendant claims of self defense. in this case, they committed 4 different companies, including the aggravated assault with a shotgun. they started it, they do not get to claim self defense. and then of course, publication, you can't force someone to defend themselves against you,
8:25 am
so you get to claim self defense. this isn't the law flat. 17 wives, supremacist, leaders and organizations in the us have been order to pay more than $25000000.00 in damages of violence, interrupted during a fall right rally. i can 2017 and also was bought by 9 people who suffered physical and emotional injuries during a night. the ride welling in charlottesville, virginia, the following day, a woman was killed when a car was driven into counter for us. federal jury has ruled 3 pharmacy chains, c, v, s. walgreens and walmart recklessly distributed massive amounts of painkillers which helped fuel the opioid crisis to counties in the state of ohio blamed, betray for not stopping the pills, flooding into the communities. the problem is said to have cost those counties about a $1000000000.00. hundreds of people have died from overdoses in the state of our hire, the amount of damages each company must pay, will be decided by
8:26 am
a judge. next year. apple has filed a lawsuit against and his rally, cyber assume it's controversial hacking tool. the tech james is anissa groups, pegasus software targeted and tracked into users in the us. apple is the latest in a string of companies and governments to pursue the spyware maker. earlier this month, it was placed on the tri blacklist by us officials, jody will be chief executive officer at global cyber risk. she says it's one of the strongest steps any company has taken so far. it's very significant because the softer was developed to target iphones and android mobile phones. so if apple can succeed and get a ban or an injunction so that the n s o software can not be used on their phones, it will effectively kill the s o market for the software. so it's
8:27 am
a very big move by apple. one that i'm very glad to see them take, i think it's very important. they are trying to hide their fear mongering. and they're trying to hide behind the terrorist and peta files. and the fact is, they aren't trotting out examples of terrorism and head of files and their technology successfully defeating that. what we're seeing is governments that have use this technology to suppress human rights and civil rights. and ways that are countered to democratic principles. and certainly in the united states, national security interests. so they are just simply trying to hide behind israeli defense licenses for the technology and also claiming that it can be used to catch bad guys while the bad guys may be in s. so inflation across the world has been linked to supply chain disruptions and a global shortage of chips used infected ranging from phones to cons has heat manufacturing, that's from the samsung, the south korean electronics giant to announce plans to build
8:28 am
a semi conductive factory in the u. s, state of texas with $17000000000.00 construction is set to begin next year with operations to staff in 2024. in just under an hour from now master is set to launch a spacecraft and it's going to deliberately smash into an asteroid. it's a test run. in the event, a jain space rock needs to be redirected away from the devil asteroid read erection . it test. oh, done for sure is being aimed at an object code to move is scientists hope they can alter its course by colliding with it. amy thompson is a contributor at space dot com. she says the mission could provide essential technology in the future. this size of asteroid is really hard to detect with telescopes here on earth. so astronomers are probably only found about 30 to 40 percent of these asteroids that are orbiting near the earth. so the purpose of this
8:29 am
test is to see if they can move an asteroid, so that if one is, you know, on track to impact the earth that they can prevent that from happening. the really big asteroids which are planet killers are pretty easy for nasa. and astronomers to detect, so what they're really targeting our asteroids that could be like regional destroyers like something that could have a huge impact and say, a certain part of the, the planet. so it's really important that we have a means to protect against those. this is going to be a test, obviously to push an asteroid just a little bit out of its orbit, but this technology can actually be scaled up so they can use it for different things in the future. maybe for moving objects in deeper space or moving different types of satellites. that type of thing. among his groups, by albert einstein laying out his theory of relativity has been auctioned in paris
