wolves in germany grows farmers say they pose a serious threat to their livestock on the likelihoods. this is doing business on robots in berlin welcome to the program u.s. low cost carrier frontier airlines has made its stock market debut the company is banking on early signs of a recovery in passenger demand however it shares fell slightly below expectations during thursday trading spending most of the day just below frontiers $19.00 a share target domestic demand for flights in the u.s. is making a comeback as coronavirus vaccines continue but international travel is still well below preplanned levels. let's cross to our wall street correspondent culture and discuss this a little bit further so our airlines in the united states over the worst now yet.
11:18 pm
right but it appears that at least the worst might be a very high end of the u. s. airline industry we already see a passenger numbers increasing and some allies like delta for example this week announced they will stop or end a program for those empty middle seats that does not mean that we are anywhere near where we were before the pandemic but at least we are well off the lows and that is a good sign and you already mentioned all the vaccinations here in the united states and when summer travel begins in about 2 months we will probably see passenger numbers increase even further business travel on the other side as a whole different story and if you look at the is i.p.o. from frontier at well i mean they started trading on the lower end of their plot price range and the stock didn't really move that much here on thursday but still it's a hopeful that we have an i.p.o. at all from the airline industry so that things continue to get better yes and that
11:19 pm
is there an overriding sense of optimism beyond just the airline industry in the united states. definitely rob we see the u.s. economy again in quite some stream just here on thursday we got new figures from factory activity in the united states and that actually reached the highest point since 19 eighties 3 and overall the u.s. economy could grow by about 7 percent this year that would be the fastest growth since 1984 on friday we will get to the official numbers from the labor department for the month of march and probably for the month of march sorry and probably we might even see that's at these what some economists expect up to $1000000.00 new jobs for the past month so that would be pretty much one of the biggest increases in the labor market since the pandemic started still left and
11:20 pm
right there are signs that the economy is improving even if overall specially if you look at the labor market it will take some time before we reach that level before the pandemic but yes the speed of the u.s. economy is quite astonishing nobody probably would have guessed that a couple of months ago. thanks a ring as of today. now health officials have warned that india's temporary ban on major coronavirus vaccine exports could be catastrophic for some african countries india has been providing millions of doses to the kovacs initiative which procures jobs for poorer nations but delhi is now moving to protect its own domestic supply as it fights a searching call 1000 cases. on thursday india reported more than $72000.00 new covered cases the highest spike in 6 months with a total of $12000000.00 active cases india is the 3rd highest in the world experts

11:45 pm
it's a woman's world at this year's brit awards and that is a big change west year the brits were criticized for nominating only male acts in the best album category this year there are 4 women nominated and only one male artist. on the. charts out there doing a lead but is the best known nominee in the running with her album future in the style jack. is also. going. to w culture reporter my crew goes here for more about this year's brit award nominations might do a leap was got 3 nominations this year she already want to grammy for this album is this just going to be the dually push of maybe maybe but they also see 2 other female musicians with 3 nominations and 1st of all we have celeste

she has won last year in the category rising star and and now she's nominated for best female solo artist full best album and breakthrough artist she's a soul sensation originally from california and now she's british and she has this remarkable voice. down around you know. yes she does. not lead. she does and she's also a great songwriter also written songs for a couple of soundtracks and also 3 nominations in the same categories small pox also a new kind of from london very classic. so together was doing these strong women on the leading the race for the awards but

there's some stiff competition ok so that awards are about british music of course but there are also these international categories best international male artist best international female artist who should we watch out for there it's a bit confusing i was a bit surprised about the bruce springsteen nomination because he's the old rock he's from another generation and i don't thing that so many younger ones still know him but he has good chances to win also an award by the way the record labels have a big influence over who gets nominated so of course we have the most successful artists like. taylor swift for example she has just tricked the 1000000000 mark on you tube in just a few months with her latest song ok you as a music lover as a culture journalist just briefly who do you think should win should win. is

11:50 pm
performances with models who danced their way down the runway these recordings give a sense of the energy and mood of those days. even though given the police energy was pushed in part by our status as a kind of island we could move around within a certain framework and then we wanted to really move a lot because there was nothing outside we wanted ever. thing to be beautiful and exciting and interesting and also meaningful the daughter and small. david bowie and iggy pop lived in berlin in the mid 1970 s. and of course claudia skoda hung out with the city's creatives attended her runway shows musicians and artists such as martin kemp and that he photographed her in a subway station posing with her knitting machine as if it were a guitar. photographer jim 5 key to also took

11:52 pm
that's art mr goldberg your account is in the red surprising given your surname. you're converting to judaism why we want to become part of the global conspiracy these are some of the city cartoons found in miriam how the. anti semitism for beginners which pokes fun at anti jewish stereotypes the new york born writer of jewish descent who has german roots came up with the book project at the start of the coronavirus pandemic. immediately old conspiracy theories started circulating like the jews are to blame for the coronavirus that really bothered me. so i told myself i no longer want to get angry i want to laugh about this instead. we're at berlin's jewish look at 200 long bookstore books from our yellow publishing house germany's 1st jewish publisher of

11:54 pm
a nice fantasy imagining our planet is not simply circle the sun someone is actually directing communicating and controlling everything. but i don't think it's the jews. at least not those i know. the bestselling author says the humor in his novels stems from the train tragic scene. is that of course remaining detached is key i've always had this detachment from the world given my jewish roots which i never chose. we were always treated like strangers we were always outsiders kind of like living in a guest house golf hall but that i believe has helped me over the years like got as they get oil from you know i'm sorry jokes about jews and jewish humor are not the same thing. and. i. am a storyteller. since i need to. pay diddy on qana performing the jews are to
