making the case the government of failing to protect it. they want the prime minister to resign, offer a journalist, was found dead in his home after being attacked. ah, hello, i am rebecca rate is welcome to the program. cuban president miguel diaz canal has accused the us of stoking unrest after thousands of cubans took to the straits in the largest anti government protest in decades, protested march through the capital havana on sunday, and gathered at other cities on the caribbean island gas to disperse the crowds and arrested several people. there were also questions with pro government demonstrated keepers and during shortages of food and medicine, and record, coven montana infection. number one, president joe biden has both boys to his support for the protests. cuba,
1:02 am
people demanding their freedom from an authoritarian regime. i don't think we've seen anything like this in a long time. of course, frankly, ever in the united states stands firmly with the people or q, what as they assert the universal rights abiding secretary of state anthony blank and rejected cuba suggestions that the u. s. has a hand in the protest. it would be a grievous mistake for the cuban regime to interpret what is happening in dozens of towns and cities across the island as the result of product. if anything, the united states has done, william grand is a professor of government and a latin american politics expert at the american university in washington. they say
1:03 am
he joins me now. president graham diaz can now blame the u. s. a. being behind the protest. does he have any evidence for that? well, i'm sure he points to the fact that the united states has been spending about $20000000.00 a year in support of opposition elements inside cuba. but the reality is that these demonstrations were too large and 2 broad in scope across the island to be strictly the result of any effort by the united states to foment opposition. people are just, you can amicably desperate and frustrated right now because there's no food in the stores. there's no medicine in the pharmacy. there is no fuel to gas stations. and there are now rolling electric blackouts in the middle of summer time. so people who just angry and the result is this kind of social explosion. and how much of a role does the us trade embargo play in that worsening economic crisis?
1:04 am
well, the us embargo plays an important role. donald trump black remittances from cuban americans going to their families in cuba. and that was about $3500000000.00 a year in hard currency, low in foreign exchange currency that cuba no longer had. and that effected the standard of living of about 60 percent of cuban families. and it meant the government had a lot less foreign exchange currency to be able to import food and medicine. they really the biggest protest in cuba for decades. we think the start of a viable opposition movement against cuba, communist regime so i think we'll have to wait and see whether this is the 1st of a kind of a cycle of protests as we've seen in a number of other countries. or whether this was just one single days worth of
1:05 am
social explosion. but either way, the underlying social tensions and grievances that people have are not going to go away. and so they'll manifest themselves in one way or another where thing people are going to rural areas who could be easily identified by the regime. what do you think spock this level of anger? i think it's the desperate economic situation that, that people are facing. they just see no alternative and the increase in the, in the pandemic in recent weeks has, has really, i think, chipped kicked things over the edge. because cooper for a long time was managing the pandemic pretty well. but then the delta various got loose in the community and things have been getting worse day by day professor, thank you so much for the analysis. professor william layer graham in washington,

1:18 am
let's cross to our correspondence on bull street. he ends quarter because it has been a bit of a wild ride for virgin galactic shares on monday has met yet those chairs are getting traded here at the new york stock exchange at the opening . it looked like virgin galactic would be up by 10 percent reaching about $50.00 a piece just to put that into perspective, to stock trade it at around $50.00 a piece in may. so now the stock is more than a triple, but then we got the announcement that boise electric actually wants to give out new shares. so kind of to cash in from the rather high stock price giving out a new share in the amount of pipe $100000000.00. and what that usually means is that for current investors, their stake gets lower as more share stock coming onto the market. and that actually led to this huge sell off by the end of the day bridge. and galactic was
1:19 am
down by about 17 percent. but generally, how excited their investors guessing about these developments in commercial space travel? yeah, they are pretty excited and there are also some other space companies being traded at the us exchanges and those stocks did gain in the mandate session. and then as richard branson and he actually expects the entire space travel industry a could have a market potential of about one trillion dollars. and so clearly there are also other companies like blue origin from jeff base also tried to profit from that trend. talking about jeff, based by now actually even more than one online petition. asking to jeff pathos, not grant re entry to earth when he goes out to space next week, tuesday. well, probably we will let him back in, but yeah, i mean it's the,

the huge space race. we have mosque with his space x company on top of it. so there is quite some into the, as i'm on wall street and the stock markets in general. and with investors when it comes to this space, right. and go on more 3, thanks for staying on top of that for us. now a quick look at some of the other business stories making headlines. fessler bossy lawn mosque has been in court to defend the car, make a purchase of solar panel make a solar 55 years ago. investors accused muskets using the $2600000000.00 deal with rescue. the company from bankruptcy must founder this with his cousins and was also its chairman. he denies conflicts of interest. you is, but a proposal for a digital tax on hold like person is that the u. s. is pushed brussels to hold off on the measure which focuses on large tech as leading economies discuss tax reforms . g 20 finance chiefs agreed to
1:21 am
a minimum corporate tax rates the retail international. it's like c shown. now the united nations says 2020 saw a dramatic worsening of world hunger progress towards eradicating food. poverty has been put into reverse in part because of the global pandemic. you figures from the us, food and agriculture organization, show the number of people without enough to eat rows ever 8 percent last year, when more than 750000000 people went hungry, maybe as many as 811000000 around the 10th of the global population, by far the worst hit regions, asia, and africa, where hundreds of millions of people are getting hungry. and each research is believe the situation in africa as worth and dramatically, let's say from cindy haldeman, who is a senior economist, the f a o. she told us climate change was and economic decline. we're all contributing to growing hunger. in 2020, we saw 35 countries with the highest increases in hunger. and that was not only in
1:22 am
africa, some countries like kenya or wanda. but also the philippines and asia, sri lanka, mexico, columbia, brazil. so we can think this is only a problem of africa and we need to really scale up our, our efforts for climate resilience, terms of all of the food chain in terms of protecting and making sure that we don't have a problem back in food when we get these climate extremes. now don't take your morning coffee for granted. climate change means 60 percent of wild coffee species at threats of extinction. warmer temperatures, pests and diseases are all taking their toll. farmers in columbia of searching for take techniques to protect their crops. the inspection of her coffee field has just begun for clara largo is already nervous. are the coffee berries healthy, or has the beetle gotten to them 1st, as it has so often in the past?
1:23 am
when it comes to not the climate change is fueling the spread of the coffee board beetle. if you don't carry out consistent inspections, then it gets into the fruit and consumes everything around the village of can shia everything revolves around coffee just as it has for generations. some $3000.00 small farmers oppose the tradition. each coffee cherry is selected by hand. unlike in other parts of the world, this quality control has helped me columbia world leader. however, climate change is threatening to reduce the area that can support coffee cultivation, both here and worldwide. by 50 percent in the next 30 years, coffee could become scarce. a many farmers that are already giving it up that's out of the question for the kito barrow family. they're fighting against these climate change consequences. up here at 1700 meters. the harvest is going well for them
1:24 am
this year. so i need a copy. i've lived off coffee all my life. i don't have a lot of money, but i've been able to raise a family and move forward. thanks to coffee from the link is really looking for e l. his family and his neighbors sought advice from an organization funded mainly from the netherlands. as a result, they now plant their coffee trees under larger shady trees. they also leave weeds to keep the soil cool and moist in a court with the pool. we need to act now and consolidate the soils. the plants, the trees, everything that helps us survive. we cannot stop climate change, but all of this will help coffee farming. last longer because of the warrior says
1:25 am
he can't do it alone. but with his efforts and his neighbors combined, maybe they can make a difference in climate change is set to transform city neighborhoods around the world. to older buildings in particular require expensive retrofits to meet new efficiency standards, such as new air and heating units in the united states. many of those buildings are in minority communities. is the story of one entrepreneur in new york determined to help those neighborhoods go green. a final adjustment and one last check of the new unit. danelle baird, is that a home in brooklyn? where a new combination air heating unit has just replaced an old oil run boiler. and as the air kinda get his company made it possible. it's called block power and it finances and contracts the work for retrofits of older buildings. its focus is neighborhoods of color home on idea. the reason that this is important is because
1:26 am
in new york city, at 100 other 50 cities around the country, there are new laws that say that you have to green your bill there. whether it's been 7 years, 10 years, 20 years, we're going to have the green 100000000 buildings across america. who get those jobs who get the wealth that gets created from that transition. and are we as people of color, are we going to be at the forefront of that? or are we going to be like left behind? new york officials say that roughly 70 percent of city greenhouse emissions come from buildings. but retrofits are expensive and building owners hesitant. block power provides long term financing plans, working with investment banks like goldman sachs to create bond like assets from a debt which appeals to green investors. block power also overseas the work itself . hiring local contracting crews, also from neighborhoods of color. the challenge convincing customers. the question is, can we build that trust with black and brown community to say we're going to come
1:27 am
into your building and do something that good for you. and you can have a 15 year financial relationship with us and we're not going to screw you over that . that's the hard part. it helps that retrofit buildings save their 10. it's money that st. margaret mary catholic church in the bronx. father rudolph gonzales, worked with block power to install individual climate units, and they are controlled by this remote. it has brought down our electrical costs and we don't have a boiler to, to deal with our oil to have delivered and what have you. so we're very, very happy with it. and for block power, happy customer is the best advertisement. and finally, a university in south korea is turning human waste into digital currency. the b v is an acre friendly toilet connected to a lab, which turns the waste into me in a source of energy. there are currently 3 toilets on campus where students can make
1:28 am
deposits, so to speak. anyone using the eco friendly toilet and 10 units of a virtual currency called google, which is korean. the honey? the only catch the digital currency is only used on campus. and as over man, the business team here in berlin till next time. give us the sunshine. in the leisurely lifestyle, china's tropical island paradise for servers. but the country and dream beaches aren't just about fun and relaxation. young surfers are training in the least national program. their target olympic goal for china. the cake home
