aims to shut down its atomic energy flounced by the end of 2022 including broke off which is the country's most controversial nuclear power station. 8 these protesters are making their voices heard and have been doing so for decades outside a nuclear power plant in northern germany for over 35 years now, activists have been meeting up once a month to call for the reactor to be shut down. today is the 425th and final time that they'll be here braving the elements. that's because the blocked off nuclear power plant, one of the most controversial in germany will be decommissioned at the end of the year for pastor and protest co founder hans, good havana. it's a day of mixed feelings. has been florida's is up. i'm glad it's being taken out of operation salon, but i'm also
4:33 pm
a bit nostalgic in because i know i won't be seeing the group again any time soon so, so. but it is mainly a sense of relief that the nuclear power plant is finally history. we never imagined back then that we'd have to hold out so long on the used in risk. it all began in the 19 seventy's and eighty's, west german students joined forces with other largely left wing groups to form an anti nuclear movement. then in april, 1986 and explosion and the chernobyl nuclear power plant caused a reactor meltdown. the entire region was contaminated into this state remains uninhabitable. west germany was one of many countries to register a surge and radioactivity. the pump doff reactor was the 1st in the world to go online after the chernobyl disaster. 6 months later, several 100000 people turned out in some clash with the police consequent ivona and his fellow campaigners were determined to protest peacefully and to continue until
4:34 pm
booked off was closed down. gondola in an sean cha, i have distinct memories of chernobyl. if yet my kids were still small and weren't allowed to play outside in the sandbox. there was widespread panic on this. what is the fall out involved in? what are the effects? thus we were quite scared of eggs don't die if not to to go, but what helped against that fear was taking a stance and doing something good by protesting quarters to you and over one done mean. and they were right to be wary of radiation. a study conducted in 2008 indicated that children growing up near german nuclear reactors including blocked off or it's significantly higher risk of contracting leukemia. tax revenue from the local power plant enabled the village of walked off to expand and invest in a swimming pool and other facilities. but now a financial fallout looms. dom most to east on dot, suzanne,
4:35 pm
we as a local authority will always support our commercial enterprises. tivo, it would have stood your head, can i? we could have kept a few nuclear power plants running a bit longer until the right structures are in place for renewable energy on all foody a lawyer. i'm in a game, or also i can cushion the 2011 fukushima nuclear disaster prompted germany to declare a nuclear phase out by the end of 2022. but many countries continue to rely on nuclear power. they getting in the levy. this promotional film made by the french nuclear industry depict sent as clean and above all climate friendly. a line of argument also favored by that countries president pasadena. yet donal no, so to achieve our objectives, in particular carbon neutrality by 2050, we will for the 1st time in decades relaunch the construction of nuclear reactors in our country of nuclear. bondo clippy,
4:36 pm
greenhouse gas emissions are lower than those from fossil fuels. but compared to wind or solar power, nuclear energy production is far more expensive. it's really clear those countries around the world that are most intensely committed to civil nuclear power. ah, either countries with nuclear weapons or countries really demonstrably keen on nuclear weapons. the use of nuclear energy for civilian purposes also forms the bed brought in the number of cases for nuclear weapons programs. the point that paris and washington make no bones about if you do not have a civil nuclear industry, the engine is the special metals. the welders, you can't build a nuclear proposed submarine. so these countries are looking at it, and there are ports in the u. s. to the absolute, explicit. even if nuclear power were twice as expensive, we would still be rational to build it. it's because it helps us keep this military
4:37 pm
commitment. the blocked off protesters take pride in their activism. the reactor will be shut down, but the radioactive waste will remain in storage there for decades to come. there's still no permanent disposal site anywhere in the world, which is why the activists plan to continue their fight. but for now, they can at least claim a victory after a 35 year long campaign. clean and sustainable environmentally sound. most business sectors of focusing more and more on these requirements agriculture to needs to become more sustainable, depleted soils and widespread deforestation. mean farmers need ever more fertilizes and pesticides to grow crops. research suggests that small scale farms tend to be more sustainable and more resilient, but this tough competition from agribusinesses. in mexico, some coffee produces a pouring their energies into quality. are reported,
4:38 pm
katya dana found out more. it's early morning, n nueva progresso, a village in the mountains of vera cruz this way. the alta who are tis echo family live their napa and at home they speak not wattle. no one in black below are nearly near at m listening to what i just said means greetings to the german viewers. oh, mexico is home to some 2000000 napa, which makes them the largest indigenous group in the country. right now. wattle is one of over 60 indigenous languages spoken in mexico, which along with spanish are recognized as national languages that families laughing about a recent incident. a bittersweet story. me said one nathan,
4:39 pm
if you so cleverly lawanda, my sister had overslept and was late and my father mentioned that he'd seen a commercial on tv for some radio device that cost 5000 pesos. he will not bug what the incident to the compressor. and i said, you can't even afford to put food on the table and you want to buy an expensive radio device yet is confirmed on the number with the altima was grow coffee. every member of the family owns about a hector of land. so their coffee plantation spends about 5 hector's, they've been growing coffee for generations, but coffee production has never been a reliable livelihood. the family has now joined up with an organization called cafe color, hoping it will help them earn a secure income. and finally, lead a more comfortable life, which was the last from yes and little referrals go many families that work in
4:40 pm
coffee production live in poverty. it's unacceptable that they have to live in these conditions. when coffee is such a valuable commodity go, just because there are certain aspects of the production process, they aren't familiar with of samples, process the order. the 1st step is to grow better quality, coffee being a coffee call. it buys that families, harvest at a higher price than the going market rate and then sells it on the coffee. farmers are given advice in the fields and they beans are analyzed to see how they can be pleased with in the coffee call headquarters. and shall apa, the capital of the state of vera cruz. the beans are examined and sampled in the laboratory. so most if with yearly that we're socialists and quality control at this point,
4:41 pm
we're examining the actual appearance of the bean. the point of our analysis is partly to give the farmers feedback so they can optimize the production process. florida, this is the is and i will oka, as you can see here, we found coffee bore beatles a type of past that has infested the crop on the throat. so we have to do something about that eco nice, but that means we need to tell the farmers that they have one problem blevins. so it's very important for them to keep their fingers clean in order to get rid of this past. but i gave them was just a deposit of the coffee beans that aren't infested or then processed for sampling, roasted wade and ground. the experts gather for a 1st round of aroma testing. initially, they keep their opinions to themselves. while glucose are very of anything you say might influence the others, the law. so no one speaks while we're sampling and does he no,
4:42 pm
not over this too. oh no. mr. at this stage, identifying the best tasting beans isn't the main priority terminals. the law salute underneath the health and safety aspect is important that mozilla or a coffee beam, it's been roasted too long, isn't healthy. i mean, we'll do booker on gov. we also need to identify if any contamination occurred during the processing was over for over fermentation or fungus infestation a minute important to so victo the experts also share their findings with the coffee produces. the goal is to improve the production process so that ultimately the product can fetch a higher price. kathy cole has also set up
4:43 pm
a fun to help families, such as the altima was they paid in advance on their harvests, which means they're no longer under pressure to sell their coffee to the 1st distributor. they can find the fund is backed by, by a thin a project launched by the international climate initiative in mexico. most coffee has grown knotted mano cultures. but in traditional shaded coffee plantations, which benefit the environment, the alter, if our family had almost given up on the coffee cultivation was good, but with the support of coffee co lay more hopeful, now that it can provide them with a secure livelihood. come your me mentally. that my perspective has changed that our home was a lifesaver. the am i used to think there what will be will be, is familiar though. boston. i didn't know anything about the quality of my coffee beans. cafe. he thought, so this is a success. and we're going to continue growing our column hook off hook. so far,
4:44 pm
kathy call is working with 180 producers, but hopes to increase that to 600. the project will help secure the coffee farm is the steady income, and ensure that the local climate friendly plantations can thrive. o v t is on the rise across the globe, thanks. in part to the many crises facing us, including the pandemic, poorer districts, are expanding in cities, take the slums of nairobi, for example. more and more people are moving that out of financial desperation or because drought has devastated their villages. many slumlord see it as a business opportunity. they rent out substandard housing to tenants who are already in dire straits. my tara is one of kenya's biggest slums. landlords such as peter chica,
4:45 pm
offer the cheapest possible housing with no kitchen or running water and collect rent with violence if need be. they taken a lot of money and have the reputation for exploiting kenya's poorest got on. well, i've got 30 houses here and matter that i've been building them since i came here and i want to expand. my big goal is to have 40 houses. it's good to be a landlord when you're getting money from all these households. you can make a lot and expand faster than the income let's you build a lot of new houses, dell it, you know, you're busy now. but the housing market is not regulated. here. tenants have to pay whatever the landlord demands. people share living space to make it affordable . an average $2.00 people live in a one room shack which costs the equivalent of $30.00 euros a month. peter check, i usually collect the rent himself on camera. he makes an effort to be friendly. m
4:46 pm
. hi, how are you? he got something for me gone la? sure, i'll fetch it. okay, okay. it does what are, does your husband home walker? no, he's not there. no problem. and when he gets in, tell him hello from me. we'll go. when tenants don't pay the rent on time, the slum lords higher, gangs to collect it, gangs who can be quick to resort to violence for about $10.00 euros. they'll strong arm the tenants or throw them out of my chair. and from now, you know, this is up because we're there who is one of our landra crushing a bit and someone will incentives of them was maintenance, was written up. i myself, i've written some people out. looks is. yeah, you,
4:47 pm
you have to be done to linton who got admitted. so to have that gosh, you must be tough so that they both soon see that a good job, elijah, sunday, the bolivia, the had been tougher you out of there will you become. 6 6 agnes lavetia has been living here in maternity for 18 years now. clinic was on the other cousins. i came to the slum of my tare, so my children could go to school. or there's no work for me right now. i used to get by and dain labor to pay the school fees on workers. the corona virus made things a lot harder, but there are no jobs any more in the class. i don't have money for food or rent. everything's become much harder because there hardly any chance is left to earn money. you know, sometimes i'm so stressed, i get sick one, the gold her plight is a common one here. life in the city can quickly become a trap. the informal economy as
4:48 pm
a strangle hold on the slum food, water, electricity, and rance all cost more than in the countryside. peter che got, keeps meticulous records. those who pay get a receipt. those who don't can expect a visit from a street gang. for christina, the minister variable, another one of the young gangs, know the locals here even better than the police said when you had to be in a your, i'd like to do a go and are always willing to collect the rent will do an actual guardian. but if you go to the police, they'll ask you for a pile of money. first of your business means you, you end up paying more than 6000 shillings. the tenant owes you who are within an hour or 40 other these other other avalera g o. some agnes who have isha,
4:49 pm
lived with her husband, children, and grandchildren. 8 people in a one room shack with no kitchen, bathroom or running water. if they can't pay the back rent soon, they could be out on the street. since the pandemic hid, a lot of people here can no longer pay their rent. so many of peter take his houses are standing empty. come, no, i haven't been able to contact the tenant of this place for 3 months in this apartment. the tenant has been out of work for 3 months so far. i can't get anything from him yet. allow this rent or moved out after not paying for 6 months because of the corona pandemic. lego place has been empty since then. enter enter. peter che got might be complaining that he's doing very well compared to his
4:50 pm
tenants who faced extreme hardship. he's a man of 2 faces. he might leave the tenants alone for a few months, but then he'll send a gang around to settle, matters by force. meanwhile, the residence of maternity remain at the mercy of him and his fellow slum lords escaping poverty can seem almost impossible. one way is through a good education and that doesn't necessarily mean a business or medical degree. deafness and imagination, for example, can be very useful. and then very much in demand in one rather magical place on the outskirts of cape town. ah, the 2 vote love counselor, calling back in the school, opens its doors every saturday. my major

5:02 pm
consider whether to taking restrictions. preparing for ami crone germany is rushing to get vaccine vista shots to its critical workers like these fire fighters in hamburg before the new cove at 19 variant becomes dominant. here daily cases have been sinking across the country. but experts warn that a massive army cron waive could arrive just after christmas is amber and they are less expensive. it's a rapid exponential increase. right? if you take the conservative estimate that cases double every 3 days or what scientists and britain are reporting every 2 days, and you only need a pocket calculator to see that that 6 you dream les fast in this is mandy mitchell . while vaccines are the 1st line of defense, germany's government is preparing new restrictions for as early as next week, even for the fully vaccinated like to so last night. by to that we will have further restrictions on private contacts. so we're well prepared for the spread of
5:03 pm
the new virus mutation all over europe. was them all her to cuba, novel falsified to what the new curbs will look like. is unclear. the government is discussing possible measures with the leaders of germany, states, if case numbers saw they could be tough, is global when these predict weather, if experts, predictions are confirmed and what we're seeing in neighboring countries continues be allied, and we can't rule out a general lockdown including everything from businesses to education, to private gatherings after yet mismatch reason. for starters, that a likely mean large new year's eve parties will be canceled. and those making fitness resolutions for 2022 might need to postpone hitting the gym until the army corn wave is over. want to bring in that it is chief political editor, mckayla, co, family killer. we understand that the germans, political leaders, are meeting virtually as we speak on how likely is it that they could possibly impose a national lockdown. and assa lockdown is very unlikely actually

5:05 pm
they will stick with their draft or double up on fresh measures taken. this is open tension here between the chief advisory institute on the politicians who would have to break the news to and fro, to a public that frankly, is tired of a pandemic. how much of a stress test is this for the new government? as you know, a was sworn in barely 2 weeks ago in terms of public trust. do people have faith in this government under chancellor shows that it is capable of tackling the surge? well, there is a high level of trust and also, and probably exactly because car lauterbach himself, a doctor, is the new health minister if anybody could have voted for him directly. most germans, that most likely would have done and, and, but what we also can see is that there will be no $100.00 days for this government
5:06 pm

big plants are reporter daniel winter steps into facebook's matter, verse for announcer. it's a wonderful, magical experience. here i can live my true self business and pleasure. this is the matter verse. at least that's matters vision for the future. the company formerly known as facebook, had a rocky ride in 2021, because this bold new plan help it faced the future. it's been missing at the end of october c, e o. mark zuckerberg gave you is a taste of the met, averse a virtual world to live, work, and play. and at the same time, announcing a rebranding day, our company is now met a big commitment to the grand vision. however, critics called the dumping of the name facebook, a distraction, the company and the plague, the scandals and the brentley paper was increasingly associated with privacy
5:19 pm
breaches, disinformation, the trump insurrection. and that's the main reason why the company changed their name. that came off to explosive accusations from whistleblower francis houghton, who claimed facebook knew of harm that was causing vulnerable users and that it didn't take enough action to intervene. telling d w. facebook was too focused on english language content, moderation. mark zuckerberg has said engagement based ranking is dangerous because people are drawn to extreme content. but don't worry a, i will say less. the problem is that strategy requires us to build those systems over and over and over again. each language for the platform to be safe. and right now facebook is not doing that. but is it even possible for facebook to properly moderate posts by 2900000000 monthly active users? perhaps matter has just become too large owning dominant social platforms, not just facebook, but what's up and instagram to would be really want
5:20 pm
a members to be dominated by the very same private companies that already dominate the internet today. and i think the answer for democratic society should be definitely not. but those are the key questions that we need to be talking about. questions of power, questions of who controls these spaces? and only in the 2nd step can we talk about what does it even mean to live in a metaphor? the real question to always be is that the future we want. if the company formerly known as facebook can control the effect it's already having on the real world, how can we trust it to least a bold new virtual one? indeed, we're now joined by christie plaids and, and bon. let's start with that christie. is there an answer to other facebook could be trusted with a virtual universe? well, i think we should emphasize the fact that a, this universe wouldn't be built or controlled by facebook or meta as they're now
5:21 pm
called a mark. soccer berg said him this himself in the re brand that the met averse would be a collaborative project involving many players. now that being said, of course, the spree brand ties this company very strongly to this new initiative in a very aggressive way. and yeah, there was actually really a lot of pushback against this move after after zuckerberg announced this as we just heard facebook, facebook or formerly facebook. now meta has been really played by scandals for years, but especially this year and the whistleblower francis house actually call for him to step down and really allow facebook or meta, pardon me to move on from the sort of assorted history they've had right now. we saw many founders of these major big tech companies stepping down this year, also recent years. we, you know, amazon, twitter, microsoft zuckerberg is really the main founder still leading his company and out, based on his company's track record. there's not a lot of reason to think it won't be the same going forward with them at
5:22 pm
a verse. so bit of a last man standing vive there. now at the top of the show, christy, we talked about e laws in the making. how could you regulation shape, tech players in europe? right, well this regulation has been moving along was surprising. the surprising speed was really just announced just a little over a year ago. and we're already of, as you said, going to be heading into official negotiations in january, so much quicker than people had expected. what we're seeing in the, in the drafts of these laws are, for example, a rules that would limit how these companies can use user data, for example, to leverage for advertising revenue. that would be a major blow to zuckerberg, a company's business model. and we're also seeing discussions of, of financial penalties as high as 10 percent of these companies, global turner annual turnover. so this is an amount that is really enough to make, make them finally pay attention. they've gotten used to sort of getting away with breaking the rules in the past, and if this law passes that way,
5:23 pm
that could change things. so you're talking about major blows to the business. what does this mean about the feasibility of enforcement? right, well the rules themselves and how they would be enforced us still needs to be hashed out by the players involved in, in passing this legislation. but some the elements were seeing as i would, there would be not only a list of rules for these companies to follow, but they would also allow the laws would also allow for the european commission to carry out investigations. shouldn't think it's necessary. there have also been calls to include legislation that would protect whistleblowers like hogan, of course, insiders are often the ones with the real information about the, about the dirt that's going on behind the scenes. and that will also be seeing some discussions about how a, what is the responsibility of the commission and what is the responsibility of the individual countries in terms of carrying out the these laws. so, but that all remains to be seen. christie plaid said not with dirt,
