century. the worst economic crisis since the great depression the worst attack on our democracy since the civil war now after just 100 days i can report to the nation america is on the move again thank offering a wide ranging vision of jobs prosperity and a new era of big government with big spending plans biden said he would pay for it all with higher taxes on corporations and the super rich continue to cycle growth things worse 20000000 americans lost their job in the pandemic. working the middle class americans at the same time. roughly 650000000000. saw their net worth increase by more than one trillion dollars in the same exact period my fellow americans trickle down. trickle down economics has never worked this time to grow the economy from the bottom in the middle out. on
international policy biden focus on adversaries russia and china linking america's ability to conjure them to this excess of his domestic policy agenda. america's movie moving forward but we can't stop now. we're in competition with china and other countries to win the 21st century we're doing great inflection point history. the circumstances of biden's speech were on like any previous presidential address members of congress were mosques and were seated apart because of condiment restrictions. but i'm now joined by. the german government's coordinator of trans atlantic corp and a member of the german bundestag mr buyer there have been high hopes for a reset of german u.s. relations on the biden you said this time it's time to build the so-called new west
what do you mean by that yeah. i think these window of opportunity to build a new west to reassure the transatlantic alliance is already there in the middle of it all in the 1st part of that what do i mean concretely i think it's now the chance and also the responsibility more than ever before that we over here in europe together with the american friends on the other side of the atlantic have to define politics where can we do jointly things together for example when it comes to a joint transatlantic china policy joint transatlantic politics. towards russia that is something that we should address rather sooner than later you mentioned russia there's north stream to the gas pipeline is being constructed right now between russia and germany the u.s.
is opposed to it germany is still pushing forward with it is there any compromise inside. you know i think we should also those including myself wish a hope for a more middle or a fake style with you guards to north stream to under the new by demonstration you know what we were like dissolution so i think we can't respond with a with the same arguments of the same stat and men are from this idea of the land and now and with the new administration i want to be an enabler think we need to in april this new start off the transatlantic relations what do i mean by that it has proved that congress congress especially is is still very much tough on russia and he clearly does not seem to pipeline project i think we should. have a at least temporary stop to finishing this pipeline it's the 2nd straight of
a pipeline that has already existing although it's all almost finished but it is a dropsical still it is major obstacle it has not gone away so i wanted a window of up and tear it to start never affect talks negotiations with the guardian not to between the americans and europeans and maybe or even to really a great whole package with regard to a joint russian politics including the wall street to its about germany's coordinator of trans atlantic corp thank you very much russian opposition leader legs in a volley has appeared in public for the 1st time since and then nearly a month long hunger strike in jail the crown in critical period of video link for legal hearing on the slander case portas inside the courtroom saying of ali appears to have lost a significant amount of weight. i'm on the moscow correspondent. and
want one of all his appearance in corbin live. well as he was saying he appeared via video link in a court today and it was the 1st time we actually got a good look at the man's and he began and his hunger strike earlier in the week now based on his own admission is lost well more than 10 kilograms during his 3 week hunger strike and says because of the effects of that hunger strike he's only able to eat of she use for each each day now he is answering a red actually this is part of a slander conviction he received earlier this year and you know he's used the appearance to basically. again soapbox a little and talk a little bit about you know is proportional situation in the country but at the moment he did. appear to be very i was an incredible amount of weight over the last 3 weeks. so the russian authorities meanwhile are further tightening their grip on the volleys organization what happened today. well and that really does seem to be you know the major news of the day i mean he and his organization is
anti-corruption foundation are facing an incredible amount of legal pressure from the russian government now and they are in the process of being labeled an extremist organization and that could affect and their work throughout the country in one of his key allies. actually admitted that they're going to have to close their organizational offices throughout the country saying that their work has become almost impossible now at the scene time prosecutors have opened a new case against alexina all meet and he choose from a founding am an organization which harms the rights of russian citizens and that is in connection to his anti-corruption town de sion and that could bring fresh jail time for him when he's already serving several years in prison so really at the moment it seems like there is an increasing amount of pressure against him and his organization coming from the russian government. in moscow thank you for this update thank you. let's take a look now at some of the other stories making headlines around the world police in
germany have detained a 51 year old woman and on suspicion of killing 4 people at a home for the disabled in the city of pottstown nearby berlin a 5th person was found with serious injuries the exact events and circumstances are still unclear. germany's climate law is insufficient according to the country's highest court it's ruled that the government must set goals for reducing greenhouse gas emissions beyond 2030 several environmental activists have argued that the current law threatens their futures because it doesn't go far enough. india set another record in coronavirus case numbers their exponential growth is vastly surpassing the spread of the virus anywhere else in the world as of the 6th of april india reported more than 115000 new cases 10 days later daily cases to over 230000 now in the past 24 hours there have been nearly 380000
new infections some say the true numbers could be much higher as india's health care system has become overwhelmed with seriously ill patients. a covert 19 ward in a hospital in delhi this hospital like so many full to overflowing medical staff stretched to the limit some falling ill with the disease themselves one reality in india's coronavirus emergency and here's another woman receives oxygen outside a sikh temple. she's not alone there's no room for these people in delhi's emergency wards relatives are left to cope with severely ill patients by themselves describe some other situation. it's the one we believe having once been and now she is not really a big. infatuation was. yesterday in the night it became 6 pm now it is.
a long line outside a supply of people doing what they can to save their loved ones some get the oxygen they need. for there isn't enough to go around. saying go home and if someone is dying there then let them they have nothing to do with our pain they have no one in their house who's ill. the state of delhi is reporting one death from covert 19 a free for minutes and the hospitals can't cope with the growing numbers of patients so the cremation grounds are struggling to cope with the rising number of deaths. the funeral pyres a burning day and night. delhi is one hot spot of india's covert 1000 emergency maharashtra state in the city of mumbai is another here vaccination centers run out of supplies on wednesday india is one of the biggest producers of vaccines but it doesn't have enough to vaccinate the next 600000000
people who will become eligible for the job. telling us that injections are not available as vaccines have not arrived i registered to come here 3 days ago i came all the way across the city and now they tell me so they've given me a helpline number and told me to try again tomorrow. well. amid the frustration and suffering this 105 year old man and his 95 year old wife has survived a covert 19 infection. the family says they want that story to give hope to others for many fighting the disease open prayers are all they have to help them germany's foreign minister masses visiting the afghan capital kabul 2 days before nato officially begins to withdraw its troops it marks the end of the nearly 20 year old military mission was pledged germany remains committed to securing stability and opportunities for the people of afghanistan but with talks with the
taliban and the afghan government faltering especially women fear their hopes and dreams for a better future are in jeopardy. make up and hairstyling are still tanika remains passion the 24 year old discovered it here in the south lawn in kabul the women working here are too young to have experienced the tyranny of taliban rule but they worry that if the hard line islamists regain any power afghanistan's women will lose their hard won freedoms. to the phone and if we can be assured that we'll have peace in our people will be safe we do accept wearing the hijab but only on condition that women won't face restrictions that we will be able to work and study we don't want the old afghanistan i've never seen the taliban but i fear them. the salans owner was born as a refugee in iran but she returned to her homeland to start
a career. as simple to form why didn't achieve what i have now easily i worked very hard for it if the taliban really come to power and don't allow us to work i'll have no choice but to return to iran again and live as a migrant just about a. 20 years after the u.s. led invasion ousted the taliban girls are in school women are in parliament government and business. but now the u.s. and nato are withdrawing their troops washington is pressing for a power sharing deal between the afghan government and the taliban activists want guarantees that the insurgents won't roll back the gains women have made. we keep on yelling and screaming and saying for got sakes at least do something with the talking about take some kind of fact some kind of assurance from them that you know or some sort of an offer of a mechanism to be put in place in order to see that they are not going to be you
know leaving that the road that they are supposed to be taking on the road to peace and the v.a. thing from that. taliban control of afghanistan is greater than at any time in the past 2 decades the militants have outlined the freedoms women would retain if they came to power including work in certain professions but there is fear that after the last foreign troops leave no one will have the leverage to ensure they make good on any promises and women will once again be relegated to the margins of society. china launched the core module of its 1st permanent space station a rocket carrying the module blasted into space in the 1st of 11 missions needed to complete and crew the station by the end of next year when finished of will rival the only other space station circling our planet the international space station or as
a us. let's bring in chris welch he's an expert on astronautics and space engineering from the international space university in strasbourg chris tell us more about this module that's been sent into space today why is it important for china. well it's important because it's the 1st of 3 more tools as you said they're going to be launched that will allow china to establish a move substantial and longer term space station its head to space stations in the past they were only up there for a few years and they were relatively small this one's going to have 3 more tools it's going to be much more capable it will be comparable in size with the former russian space station and it may well last longer than the international space station does the iowa state is coming towards the end of its life and the chinese hope that this one will operate for 10 maybe 15 years so what our time is ambition
in space that. shiners ambitions in space are to work to be a you know a global or if you like sort of interplanetary class player it's linked in with their overarching national ambitions which is to be seen as a great technological power by by the middle of the current century so it wants all the things that if you like other space powers have you know and more so you know we seeing them send spacecraft to the moon we've seen them since those go off to mars now they're going to start putting humans on a long term basis on the space station they're going to launch a telescope a space telescope similar to the hubble space telescope they're developing a wide range of launch vehicles they want to have their own global satellite communications similar to you know star link you know basically if there's anything that the that the west has you know they want to have the same. do you think china
has any military ambitions in space. we're not specific military but you call and we need the nature of china as you can't completely divorce the military from from anything else so it's everything they do there will be some sort of you know military aspects to it it will be interesting to see you know in reaction to you know the u.s. creating space force you know whether with it with a china you know effectively creates its own similar you know we could force i mean i personally as a sort of peace loving professor i you know i hope not. but nevertheless you know we have geopolitics on earth and there's no reason why some of those geopolitics you know will not extend up into the space to mine. so we see we heard lots of news from mars exploration recently. the chinese are now sending a space station now are we living in a new space age right now briefly if you can you know you we are
all over the world is a massive amounts of activity you know we're seeing both geopolitical reasons different nation states wanting to get involved also commercially a lot of what new space companies are starting so you lost a lot of space activity these days and even more to come across wells in strasbourg thank you very much for your input. i think that and we stay on the subject of space x. exploration one of the pioneers michael collins the american astronaut who took part of the most famous space mission of all time as died by this crewmates neil armstrong and buzz aldrin became the 1st people to land on the moon in 1969 and he stayed behind in the apollo 11 command module circulate circling the moon alone because of that michael collins is often called the forgotten astronaut he died
after a battle with cancer he was 90 years old. and some sports news the new zealand rugby team is one of the world's most successful sporting science but even they have been hit by the coronavirus pandemic now a new zealand rugby has agreed to sell a stake in its commercial rights for 230000000 euros to an american investment company the landmark deal should help stabilize the team's finances but some worry that tradition is on the line. it's a ritual that for decades has left spectators in or and opponents quaking in fear all while paying tribute to new zealand's indigenous community but is the hacker about to become a money spinner for private investors. all those in for on thursday new zealand rugby unanimously voted in favor of a deal that will give us private equity firm silver lake a 12.5 percent stake in its commercial rights if finalised it will be the 1st time
foreign investors have part owned the iconic all blacks. however the deal still needs to be approved by the new zealand rugby players association and star players have previously said that they would block the sale. new zealand rugby chief brant m.p. has warned that could be catastrophic after kovac 19 ravaged the sport's finances. it's very clear that this is a deal that must proceed i think it would be a terrible mistake if if the players don't eventually support the steel but it's not just the players who are against the deal local rugby fans have reacted with concern. i think. that's why i think this it's ok to. talk about the dollars. not there if you know foreign ownership coming just over a week after football's failed super league venture new zealand looks set to become
