friday. i want house correspond, it can be hawk. it has more on what the secretary of state is hoping to achieve. while he's trying to send a message and that message that he will be sending to the russian foreign minister is one that has been repeatedly underscored by the west. whether it be through telephone calls, between the various levels of government between the united states and russia. whether it be in consultations that have taken place between european partners. but the message has been consistent. that is that the u. s. believe that the only way to resolve security differences with respect to concerns about russia invading ukraine is through diplomacy. and should russia choose an alternate path? there will be severe financial consequences. now, the reason that the united states is so gravely concerned is because there is u. s
1:08 am
. intelligence that has been in place for months that russia is preparing for some sort of imminent attack. not only because there are tens of thousands of troops, russia has a mass along the border near ukraine, but also because there has been an up to an activity on social media that seems to indicate that an attack may be in it. our views. this is an extremely dangerous situation, where now at a stage where russia could at any point, watch an attack and ukraine, and what secretary blinking is going to go do is highlight very clearly. there is a diplomatic pass forward. it is the choice of president putin and the russians to make whether they are going to suffer severe economic consequences or not. prior to the meeting in geneva, between survey live, rob and antony blank, and there will also be other meetings and consultations that will take place. we know that the secretary of state will also be traveling to berlin. the efforts to

1:10 am
you listed meals on ukraine. we have a common understanding of absence of alternatives to the minsk agreements. we indicated to our partners that it's unacceptable to present russia as a part of the conflict. we've seen such attempts lately, and it's unacceptable to shift the responsibility for absence of progress in implementing minister agreements to russia. we hope the german colleagues we weigh in on their ukrainian partners to make them finally fulfill their obligations. us telecoms giants 18. t and verizon have agreed to partially delay activating that 5 g networks near some airports after major airlines one. it could cause catastrophic disruption to flights that move might have come too late to some international airlines, including emirates, have already cancelled some flights to the country. airline chief executive say they are concerned that 5 g wireless signals will interfere with the navigation systems of aircraft whitehouse, as it's actively engage with all parties involved to mac, to maximize deployment,

while protecting air safety, which are a 100, joins us live now from chicago's o'hare airport, so how much disruption could this cause? well, it could have caused its substantially more had we not had to this agreement. the possibility, according to the airlines, was dramatic, not just canceling, thousands of flights and side lining millions of people who wanted to travel. but also according to the airlines, it would have stopped a lot of cargo travel. it would have stopped the production lines going all over the world. any time they stopped here. and it would have also stopped some helicopters, including those who, which might have been doing medical rescues. that's what the airlines position was in any case at the telecommunications companies, seemed to feel that it would not be the case. now, here's the crux of the problem. airline say they believe that this new 5 g
1:12 am
technology would affect the ultimate or you'll timid or is, is a device that tells a plain how high up it is. and that's really important, particularly in bad weather. so the federal aviation administration was potentially in the position of requiring those planes to be grounded if there was bad weather in the airline. say there are other, other things that the altimeter do, which would have required them to have grounded planes in any case, in other countries or been 40 other countries that have deployed this 5 g technology. and they did it largely by creating a bubble around airports where that technology would not be deployed. and that's what the airlines here in the u. s. have asked to happen those to telecom companies, verizon in a t and t temporarily agreed to do that. so there is a resolution that went all the way up to the white house, president biden, thank to both of the companies for voluntarily delaying the deployment around airports, but still deploying it around 90 percent of the country. but this dispute is not
1:13 am
resolved. ultimately, they're gonna have to come to some resolution and that will have to involve the federal aviation administration, which regulates planes in the federal communications commission, which regulates the airwaves. al, thank you very much. from chicago. john hendern reporting with al jazeera ally from london still ahead sci fi to saudi. that coalition can at least 14 people in a day after detroit in miss on attack on the you. a chance time, one of a kind of painting by caravaggio and $500000000.00 bill. ah, that remains that once tropical cycling cody's thing here are just going past new zealand breezy noble. no big swell ever australia. the injection. what from what

found a pet shop where an employee tested positive for the virus customers who purchased campuses from the store in order to quarantine and return their pet will then be put down. come to go on, they'd be there. hey, holidays, possibility that the employee by the hand of a small animal is rare. legal. so you have to marry initially information because a race we hope this personal termination as soon as possible. you will be asked to handle a large number of fighting all hams purchased after december, and then are you off to testing lease? we will deal with him in a humane way. so you have microsoft as an out, the biggest acquisition deal in its history. and it's one that could shake up a video game industry is spending nearly $70000000000.00 to buy activision blizzard, which makes some of the world's most popular games like call of juicy and candy crush. microsoft is already a heavy hitter in the gaming world,
1:27 am
though the popularity of it's x xbox console and pc games that's behind its move. its latest decision is going to be subject to approval from both american and european regulators. activation. leadership has also been accused of turning a blind eye to sexual misconduct allegations amongst that staff. foreign chris n. t a is a video game consultant, an owner of pad and pixel. he says, the scandal probably dented the company's asking price. well, you know, it's interesting because this is something that's been going on for a little bit on top of that. the employees, a lot of the employees that activision blizzard are in the midst of trying to unionize. so these are 2 things that obviously microsoft is going to have to contend with and, and figure out how they want to address if the deal goes through. but i don't think the steel would have even been on the table if this hadn't happened. the company was valued at actually more than what they, what this purchase price would be about a year ago. but i, i suspect a lot of what's been going on has been sort of eating away at their valuation. so
1:28 am
it, on some level, it's sort of set up the, the ability for this purchase to go through. but again, it does come with all of these issues, including, i think a big one, which is bobby kodak who was or is the ceo of activision buzzer. others a strong pushed by employees and by even some people play games to have him ousted microsoft hasn't really confirmed on the record that would happen. i know he's going to be running the company through the deal going through. after that, the wall street journal is, is reporting via some of their sources that you will actually be leaving the company a roman villa, housing, the only ceiling year of my time painting car luncheon has failed to find a fire at auction property is expected to fetch as much as $500000000.00 in allow me put out for sale again in april. barbara and go to reports. well i can. princess rita bon company, little vc was sash has gone through all the stages of grief after being forced to
