a very warm welcome to you this is r.t. live from moscow i'm honest habit the number of people infected with h l e v in the worst affected countries has a plummeted according to a new united nations report several african states are now showing more positive statistics than the only going battle against the deadly virus meanwhile in a bid to improve ways of fighting the disease health care officials government representatives and scientists from around the globe are gathering in vienna. is following the story. in just a few days' time the eighteenth international aids conference will begin and head in vienna bringing together around twenty five thousand policymakers scientists community workers activists and people living with hiv to discuss the latest developments in the stills but right now there's a t day conference going on looking also tentative definitions and treatments of
7:01 am
hiv and aids when the aids epidemic first hit the headlines in the one nine hundred eighty s. it caused widespread panic for a singer he was one of the first diagnosed it was a terrifying experience. steve turned sixty. the trust for information was just. very. short. so rich or even the first word was to. be. produced. cigars since the discovery of aids three decades ago it's estimated a twenty five million people have died from the disease with eva sixty million people infected in that time according to the united nations u.s. scientists identified hiv as the cause and developed
7:02 am
a successful test to detect its presence but this has itself been a subject to scientific disagreements some believe there are different causes of aids not just hiv and cast doubt on the standard aids test which is based on the taking the presence of the hate hiv virus was you might think there are only a small number of scientists who doubt the hate hiv aids there way here at the conference is a list of around two thousand five hundred names all the scientists who challenge the classic definition some t. have different visas to treatment author and his doctor will turn it if there are place to convention aids fighting drugs so strong is his belief. and these are the treatment methods that he's written of the twenty three years positive based on his experiences. somber deserve an explanation for free market reforms for clifford. troops. still want to transfer from so far this dissenting from the conventional view that hiv causes aids say they can
7:03 am
face even hostility from the scientific theory is not occurring with the mainstream hiv theory of aids has even being compared to holocaust denial could a crime against humanity the expression aids denial is really nothing but you know completely probably make nobody denies that there exists an acquired immune deficiency syndrome but. a science that is alive has to have the permission to question a certain model of thinking serious thinking you know you don't bring in here a dying patient so that we have to act immediately and give him something we're discussing here we're scientists and medical doctors why should we not be able to discuss i'm very astonished at the reaction is sometimes so aggressive so that the official aids two thousand and ten conference will be one of the most widely
7:04 am
watched aids events in the world some of the topics the likely to be discussed will be access to treatment as well as need technologies and hiv an injection druggies now organizers have titled the conference right here right now which they say emphasizes the central importance of protecting and promoting human rights as a prerequisite to successful response to the problem. correspondents are reporting from vienna that. illegal immigration remains a hot topic of debate throughout the western wall while millions are on the move seeking a better life in countries that don't necessarily welcome them when the european union a leg people in belgium the netherlands and austria have elected to immigration national policies. that border control agency from texas been slammed for excessive force in tackling they seem to cross borders illegally the u.s. state of arizona criticize from the weapons will be stopped and searched
7:05 am
a move backed by several other states support his claim that they're just protecting jobs questions only it racial profiling and one of the first group says illegal immigrants place in america. under the hot southern california. immigrant workers are picking the heat consumed by millions of americans and people around the world. it's a bank breaking job not everyone is fit to do most of these illegal workers right in the united states illegally so from as far as central america and many are oblivious to the political firestorm senator brown that no one spat in your family of and you're going to leave any time i mean this is about lawful citizens versus illegal invaders if you want to build a fifty foot fence i'm in favor of the fifty foot fence you know there's a living million illegal immigrants in the united states. those could be american
7:06 am
jobs those could be tax paying jobs but some industries especially california agriculture businesses don't want americans working for them so that they will have noticed which translates into workers needed a spanish language sign definitely aimed towards immigrant workers a form based workforce that's making sure that these strawberries make it to your table there's no need for interviews or long after. undocumented immigrants simply show up at a field and they're hired many people including former president george w. bush and me immigrant workers do the jobs americans prefer to do at a farm in oxnard a city just north of los angeles neighbors aren't convinced the average american could step in their shoes even for a day. to hire a. white person is too hard. i haven't seen any american here working here in the fields said you'll get it all came into this country
7:07 am
illegally through the southern california desert he makes a dollar ninety for every box of strawberries he feels and now in an effort to employ out of work americans and obviously to prove a point the united farm workers union is embodied in american citizens to take the jobs of these farm workers wouldn't be surprised if after a day or two they find themselves appreciating those who are taking the jobs we stop by the unemployment office to find out if people who are out of work would be willing to take the job of an immigrant farm worker if a farmer came up to. do you want to job as a farm worker. and now. that. if i had a job that got me out there got me some exercise but no heavy lifting was at least eleven dollars an hour i would take it but i doubt that it's usually a lot of heavy lifting it doesn't pay too much there farmers and they're willing to pay slave labor of course they have an advantage conservative radio host tony katz
7:08 am
is among the growing number of supporters immigration crackdown he thinks the threat to the u.s. isn't just financial it over this is about people who may be coming with diseases we've already eradicated bring them back into the united states america has paid a significant price because of illegal immigration eric spence is the founder of we support arizona dot com he thinks. will take the job of farm worker because an american will do what it takes to feed their family according to the united farm workers so far only three people have taken up there are for to take in the green jobs in los angeles. r t well with more on that story in our washington studio conservative author john ramana and human rights activist reverend degrade and just the rise of negative attitudes to illegal immigrants the new straits immigration rules in some parts of the u.s. . the problem is that illegal immigrant workers have taken jobs over the years i
7:09 am
mean it the problem isn't so much of the farm industries as it's in construction bricklaying in the trades where we're seeing wage depression on a grand scale the issue is what we've got to really understand is that the whole argument is around the issue of scarcity when you got all of these folks on employed all of a sudden you've got to look for a scapegoat for the reason why folks ought employ but that's not the reason why folks ought employ the reason folks on employed is because of the way the economic system was structured wasn't regulated fell apart falls and fell apart and us falling apart in europe it's the same kind of scenario now the issue that you need to understand and mr romano should understand is that there's always been this country because of the capitalist system or a race to try to produce more or less that has always been the case so what happens is that you ended up basically outsourcing it's not that folks took jobs in fact we gave away jobs we gave away jobs through through two right there on the mexican
7:10 am
border when we passed nafta and we passed katha all the free trade agreements it was so that people of corporations based in the united states could escape all the kinds of regulations and all the kinds of labor laws that exist within the united states so yeah i'm open to finding a solution but i can't have this one sided approach that is all business or all illegals i will you know i'll come in the middle with the reverend but it's the illegals themselves who cause trouble as well as the businesses i mean business is not innocent here business is as cost and the american taxpayer billions of dollars through skirting labor laws locally say reverend robert how do you respond and i'll get i want on a car again just to semantically question one is i don't call anyone a legal because there is no human being that is illegal they may be undocumented. but it's a theological point of view to understand theological points of views and i guess that's why it's because i don't have a reverend if you haven't already what you're talking about in terms of the. anti immigrant for is a new word for racism and what you're really talking about are keeping people in
7:11 am
the shadows so that people can continue to be manipulated by corporate entities and you never look at the kinds of international policies that the united states has created another place that creates a false immigration to the united states in the first place and the reverend can say that all he wants but the it's the word illegal it does count if you're breaking the law you know there is such a thing as illegal immigration the left is doing everything they can to change the fight from illegal immigrant to immigrant the law that has been passed that has been passed in the soon to be implemented in arizona really opens the door to racial profiling because if you live on my side of the tracks one of the things you know everybody always say well the police can stop anybody without a reasonable cause well there's always reasonable cause when it comes to people of color to get stop you drive into shining a car that's reasonable cause you look like you're in the wrong neighborhood that's reasonable cause that's always the issue this is just a new new new form of racism i just want to ask the reverend question should there be any border law at all should anyone be allowed to come here at any time for any
7:12 am
reason and stay as long as they want the united states i just can i get some clarity on that from you know sir well the issue is i mean yes of course you want to have some regulation to the border but it needs to be home to maine it needs to be jazz it needs to really deal with where you're going as a country and it also needs to take into account the kind of policies that you have put in place and other countries that creates a forced economic integration. and human rights activists reverend great and discussing legal immigration law. well with still got plenty more ahead for you in the program including. muscovites go all out to find ways to beat the sweltering heat or just simply enjoy it's only for that story in a few minutes. european countries are recognizing the potential merits of a new pan-european security treaty proposed by doing well as according to russia's
7:13 am
foreign minister he's taking part in a ministerial summit in cannes extern so good of a role for the project houses opponents but there is in the analysts agreement that europe's security system should be changed the recent riots have also been at the center of discussions with proposals to set up a crisis management center to avert a future on the rest it was also agree that some fifty police advisors would be deployed to help bring stability to the unsettled region. of the delegates of the fifty six the current heat wave across europe may be good for holiday makers but it could also create a significant fire hazard among the most effective tool to use for extinguishing those solid blazes are russian helicopters and the global demand for these choppers is growing rapidly is a lot for that report. it's every year hundreds of thousands of have terisa of spanish forest disappear the reason. the combination of the hot dry
7:14 am
climate and human negligence often creates an unstoppable force resulted in a national catastrophe. but now it may have meant it's much serene on the front line for many years russian five thousand helicopters are among the best and spain has welcomed their arrival. we chose the camel thirty two because we know it formally a long time ago and we know that this is the best thirty quarter for five protein and i doubt it will be going for the fighting is very very important in our market and the come of it right now we can tell you that it's the start of the fight. she stood up without. this particular firefighting helicopter the russian k. thirty two is capable of carrying up to five tons of water it takes just ten seconds for the crew to feel its huge container haiti's and just fifteen seconds to drop it onto a fire so it's rather quick which is extremely important but this isn't the only feature that makes this russian models turned out. to seem to be
7:15 am
just moving look at the directions and tail makes the machine more stable here in. the stability and accuracy also guarantee safety for firemen both on the ground and in the air. at least has that even at the if you sent over fire with flames reaching the helicopters queue she always feels safe i know some of the now but if that's your name it's made in russia but it works perfect here in and it's easy to control easy to maneuver it's not afraid of strong winds when others can't even takeoff it continues to work it's an ideal helicopter to work in emergency situations as they say it's gone through fire and vice versa i didn't like it but now it's my favorite. pilots take a fast cities always the last helicopter to leave in the shin area. there were historically the thirty two has been made on the basis of twenty seven multi-purpose botella culture is designed to work in hard we try logical conditions
7:16 am
and aggressive climates well that's why it's on rivaled in this field for this particular mission which you will hear. ten russian kafeel cities are already a feature in the skies over spain which to me do join the ranks of the country's army and as the spanish star mine testifies that presents could be of critical importance. alekhine to severe as paying. more moscow is also in the grip of an unusually long heat wave with the current summer temperatures well into the thirty's for girls as predicted no let up during the weekend the tests are also low went in the scorching phone line for us to find out how it's a cope with it. well people here in moscow have been getting creative they have been sunbathing in their bikini's just in the middle of the city and right behind me you can see a huge fountain people there are bathing and drinking and they're having their ice creams a record sales of ice creams this summer and also just enjoying the sun i even saw
7:17 am
a couple getting married in this heat but if you ask a doctor that's not actually the best way to handle this heat they're saying that from twelve to four you're not actually supposed to be out if it costs a sunstroke and and don't drink alcohol together with the sun however right now where i am people are just enjoying it and we're actually waiting for a bit of a flash mob happening in about let's say half an hour or an hour or so we see people with guns getting ready to splash people and let's see what where that takes us but overall everybody is just enjoying the heat it's it's reached record levels here in moscow and it feels really really really hot i'm melting here so you're lucky to be in the studio according to forecasters this weather is going to last for about a week more and actually the weather here in moscow has exceeded some of the after weather in african countries and one of the coldest regions here here in russia a region which is really the coldest in winter is at thirty two degrees so we are
7:18 am
expecting more hot weather during the week for the week to come some are saying even longer than bad but we'll just have to wait and see. how the polls some conferences note in history is the moment when a new mup of europe was drawn three weeks home to the only conditional surrender of nazi germany leaders from the three nations in our attempt to establish a post. result was divided into four walls and controlled by the allied forces but the meeting will say it became the last time the allies watch together before the cold war and some expense believe that the time of the poles on conference decades of political conflicts could have been avoided. i think there was there was still a real chance at the time of course to avoid the cold war i think what it required was and it would have been a leap of faith in the summer of nine hundred forty five but it required a real understanding of the scale of the suffering of the soviet union how did you
7:19 am
. realize ation that if we take the story back to nine hundred forty two when the soviet union had been invaded the german forces were stalling it wasn't just being invaded by germany but by a coalition of eastern european countries remain you know on this route to you can the caucasus from gary and on this there were crazy troops fighting but stalling growth and the deception was in of course this was how the germans through than to do it that it was a crusade a european crusade against bolshevism and if we bear that in mind i think we can understand the soviet point of view was that they want they want to do create a buffer zone to stop the similar crusade happening in the future ahead for the technology while the top stories from around the wall sounds like real how

7:22 am
question or of course. in the film wall street's by oliver stone gordon gekko makes billions by insider trading but the character that told the world greed is good gets his comeuppance of the long arm of the wall finally gets his hands on the antihero and we presume strips him of his wealth and send him to prison here in russia the gordon gekko's of this world have much less to worry about until now after ten long years of talks it seems a low dedicated to stamping out insider trading is finally ready for presidential approval i leave you going former head of the russian market to regulators he says this step is not only significant for the proper function of the stock market but also have implications for the whole economy which is having a little though is not enough it also needs to be plight i look you can believes the russian market regulator is currently too small to take on the tosk and the

7:24 am
a mantra much of the infrastructure is in play. makes the new business district since scrapes to school i just assume poor you can go to investors is the theory money is as safe as the next person's and that's the need to protection of the law i do question our moscow better than expected financial results from american companies provided much of the driving force for the markets this week under diggins head of research of forbes club explains the impact they had all russian share prices these news determined main trends or the wall markets and most of the rica markets today we saw a sort of short correction and we hope that this positive trend will be continuing during the next three and the season of corporate finance results is going to be that the results of the second quarter of the american corporate sector we'll be
7:25 am
better than the same results of the second quarter last year russia is suffering from its worst drought in more than a decade in a state of emergency has been declared in sixteen agricultural regions some climate scientists believe the heat wave may be just the beginning of many years of hot dry weather. reports this could lead to a radical change in russian farming practices. central russia here over seventy percent of the green hollows has been destroyed by the drought but because russia normally produces a surplus and weather conditions have been more normal in siberia the country wouldn't be green shortage days here however this might not always be the case if this summer heat waves become a more permanent fixture as some climatologists expect some usable water board fifty stories for the roasted whole recounting is published a study suggesting that from the least seven g.'s to two thousand eight in georgia cool period with plenty of rain now russia is entering
7:26 am
a warm dry phase as the last two years prove and it will last until two thousand and twenty six two thousand and thirty. the hottest year in a cycle expected to come over the next five years this could be enough to change the face of russian agriculture as farmers are unable to survive on the poor yield from their land over a longer timescale a prolonged period of dry weather is likely to force farmers to change their crops to a new russia from green producer indian culture the green bean and crops. of cultivated land from green which currently stands at fifty percent could drive down to twenty percent indeed this is already happening in some regions. of the last year's drought we gave up most of the dry land on the left banks of the river we continue to cultivate the right bank decreasing from one hundred twenty thousand to forty thousand hectares. today's blistering temperatures might become the norm in
7:27 am
a few years' time if some climate change scientists who are to be believed new weather conditions will in evitable force change in agriculture with some crops becoming non-viable in the previously fertile areas with its vast plains the south of the country may no longer be the breadbasket of russia instead it might become but he will be in even worse. is in a diminutive business r.t. that's all we have for this edition of business r.t. but you can always find more stories on our website r.t. dot com slash best.
