7:04 am
a vulcan knowledge is at oakland university who studied the volcano. and he explains what triggered such a massive explosion. this was the culmination of magma building up inside this volcano, for quite some time. so it's full of magnetic gas, so it's full of trapped gas with inside the magma. and as the magma pressure rises within the volcano, and there's the gas pressure rises eventually volcano, it can no longer hold it. and so there was a sudden release of gas to produce the rupture. and all of these very large explosions are very impulsive explosions. produce an atmospheric shockwave. so you imagine this, this, the top of this volcano, around 150 to 250 meters below sea level and is that material sort of rises out of a rapidly rises at the top of the volcano that was bulge of expanding magnor and gas. that's just bursting out and it's bursting out through the water and in
7:05 am
through the air, what happens is the, it gets compressed into the shock waves and they were traveling around the world. a remarkable thing about this erection was your head, the rapid rise in the expansion of the gas and steam plume and the in parallel to that you had the su nami, radiating outwards, and also the shockwave, right? adding at what went around the entire world. china is urging people to limit travel ahead of allude and celebrations. countries because holiday is normally the busiest time of the year. but for the right people to scale down and cities battle current bars, outbreaks on record has been detected in at least 5 provinces and municipalities. a prompting cities to impose new cubs. paging is trying to stamp out the virus ahead of next month, winter in pitts. and figures just reach say that china's economy grew faster than expected. last year it expanded 8 point one percent at slightly ahead of roman cooperates and a property slump. i've now slowed growth from the last quarter,
7:06 am
and the last 3 months would be 2 across from a brit clement, whose life was from hong kong, a brit. so yes, a g d p defying predictions. absolutely . if the chinese economy grew by 4 percent in the last quarter, that slowing from 4.4.9 percent a been the quarter before overall year, it grew by 8 point one percent. as you mentioned. and there are a number of reasons for that. china had a very strong start to the year and 2021, but it started to lose steam in the 2nd half of the year. and that's as we started to see those regulatory clamp downs on a number of sectors, including the education sector, the tech sector, and of course, we remember they ever ground crisis as well. crackdowns on the property sector to now we heard from the national statistics bureau, they said that they, it's important to be aware of the external environment. it's more complicated and
7:07 am
i'm certain there are loading of close to the pandemic and external forces. they mean, they can't control other countries and how that's going to impact supply chains as well. but the i, m f and the world bank had cut grove full costs for china. so these numbers in some ways were expected. and so what about this? so busy period that we're heading into now with the olympics for luna new year and the authority suggesting that people try to limit travel as much as possible. that's right. there is a lot of course can for concern as we laid out to be a little bit games. and the luna knew you had trouble the largest migration in the world. there have been several on the chrome cases in that region change in being the focus of the outbreak containment control in the area. one case in beijing, which is near some limping venues as well. so that's prompted whole range of new restrictions. new measures including ramped up restrictions, ramped up checks for inbound travelers,
7:08 am
including pci tests 72 hours before that's on top of quarantine restrictions. daily temperature checks daily test 2. we understand that some sites has been sealed off in beijing and several areas are locked down as well. so a lot of alarm, we already know that one cases, one case to many and beijing, they have a closed loop system in place. so that athletes and problems separated from residence, but certainly this is causing a lot of alarm for officials there and they are wanting people to not travel during the festive period or a brit, thanks for the temperate climate reporting that thank you. it's upgrades military says north korea has fallen to projectiles, believed to be ballistic missiles. they will launch from an area close to the capital. young young, it is the country's fault miss our launch since the start of this year. robert kelly is professor of political science and diplomacy at present national university in south korea. he says north careers renewed missile launches a putney,
7:09 am
a test of the biden administration's tolerance. why hasn't been aggressive nor through live donald trump wasn't 2017, but it's pretty far down his list. and so the north koreans are figuring, you know, whatever came along when trump was president, that's all over the, by the people haven't really done much for us or they're not talking to us or whatever. and till we can go back to the, the testing right them and they are developing pre, clearly a missile for. so if somebody wants to test it and there's really no reason not to anymore because there's really not what's going on negotiation. the regime in north korea is always what regime security sort of its own protection against outsiders and its own people ahead of the interest and welfare of its own population. i mean, the great tragedies of north korea is a country the country. the lead is willing to basically let its own people suffer terribly in order to stay in power. and they kind of expect from the outside to sort of do more for their own people than they do themselves. one of the great ironies of dealing with north korea right from north korean at least have said for many years, i mean going back decades, right? that they were sort of interested in getting the economy off the ground and
7:10 am
operating more functionally and being less props and things like that. and that stuff is just never really come through north korea. it's been an on, has been dependent on food a now for at least since the 1990 is really going back further than that. and you know, i mean, you could change that, but it really would require, like a major redirection of state resources away from the military, some kind of effort to get the sanctions rollback to release or boost north korea. collective serve, internal self sufficiency. and the regime hasn't done that, i mean, really be a significant change in the way it spends money. and that that would be a big deal about drug rich has landed in dubai. off to being to puerto from australia, men's tennis number one had to leave after court upheld the cancellation fees are on public health counseling. con, vaccinated play was seeking his 10th straight and open title savvy as president of denouncing deportation. as far sir clot reports and has been on this departure from don under after a weekend in hotel detention, neither joke of it was granted temporary leave to attend
