breaking news the hopes for a breakthrough over iran's nuclear program fade in geneva as iran says talks have hit a snag and accuses france of blackmail. and breaking boundaries the twenty fourteen olympic torch relay reaches out to space the symbol of the games has been taken for a space walk for the first time in human history. crowded skies with thousands of drones set to launch into american airspace some concern of the current huge amount of air traffic could be put in danger.
from a student center here in moscow where it's just this is. so first some breaking news on our top story and that is that iranian lawmakers have accused france of blackmail during talks on its nuclear program because of crucial stage between tehran and six world powers after a decade long deadlock there had been hope of a deal but now negotiations appear to have hit a stumbling block. is following the negotiations in geneva and will join us a little later in the program robert harness he's a journalist and political or political analyst he's based in strasburg and he says france's position on a deal is dictated by the interests of other players. but they proceed to take an extreme position all the time and there are a number of reasons for this the first is that they are play good cop bad cop with
the americans obama is suddenly being much more reasonable in his attitude with the iranians the french are out there on the flank saying oh you must agree too easily israel must be protected and so on and in a sense that if you like. playing the game the american says so that they can sound reasonable the french are reasonable there is another factor which is that everybody knows the enormous pressure of the israel lobby in america it's not quite so well though it's pretty pretty considerable in france as well. thousands of drones will soon be swarming across u.s. airspace they're expected to be used for civil purposes such as far fighting on whether tracking their presence is still causing concern let's take a look at the states from above now these yellow spots are planes in american airspace as you can see the skies literally already totally crowded now the
movements every day is around ninety thousand and when unmanned aircraft join the traffic this number is going to rise now why would that compromise the safety of air traffic or he's going to come on looks for the answer. according to the u.s. federal aviation administration by twenty twenty there will be up to thirty thousand drones flying in the u.s. airspace not just by law enforcement and other government agencies but also by private firms all kinds of approaches to the f.a.a. game itself to use. out regulate free world work everybody to buy their throw their designating six test sites across the country to see how it goes aside from very serious might we see concerns there is the danger of media air collisions even now as the government has not yet allowed the commercial use of drones the f.a.a. is getting a rising number of safety complaints from pilots in march of this year and all the tali airliner made national news headlines when the pilot reported spotting
a drone as he was trying to land at new york's j.f.k. airport back then the f.a.a. and the f.b.i. have open investigations into finding the drone the plane was flying over a densely populated area when he brushed shoulders with a drove to the horror of the pilots of course or in a separate incident in the indianapolis five forty body. to load him in the opposite direction at a high speed just to give you an idea of how concerned pilots are one pilot said we're concerned about birds we're concerned about other airplanes and now we're throwing in something totally uncontrolled when they suck one of those drones into the engine of an airplane he said then it will get everybody's attention and one of the challenges is that drones occasionally lose connection with the operator on the ground it's a well reported problem but apart from accidental collisions there is another challenge drones can be hijacked by someone with very bad intentions so the brave new world of drones can also turn out to be
a very dangerous one in washington i'm going to r.t. . one man's lost so is another's gain in china sees opportunity in the arab spring we report on beijing's. economic charge into the middle east and north africa region left for the taking by crisis and violence. stories still to come for you but first a giant step for the sort she twenty fourteen winter games the olympic torch has just been taken on the space walk for the first time in history as part of the longest ever taught relay of his linsey france witness the unique moment at mission control. well it's a very exciting thing to watch live here because what we're actually getting to see right now is down on the floor the engineers are essentially walking because minutes through the steps of making it all the way around the international space station with the torch in hand and also it's important to note here if the viewers
out there have noticed the torch is modified obviously it's been tethered very securely to the cosmonauts because no one wants to lose that thing that outer space i'd like to know who they may have voted to go after that thing if it actually gets loose it won't but so right now the cosmonauts are being walked through how to safely make it all the way around the eye assess so it's again. it's his fourth spacewalk and sergei it's his first and of course he gets to be part of this which is amazing now of course the torch has been in space before once for the one thousand nine hundred six olympics once for the two thousand and six but this time in space it's actually going on a space walk it's not just inside of a shuttle or inside of the eye is this so it was a big moment here when we actually saw the torch come out of the hatch attached to the cost minutes and make its appearance out in space the symbol of unity and sportsmanship being seen all over the world and what's just really interesting is
to see all of the people here actually talking them through it and how they're how they're communicating it's something it's an amazing thing to see. the torch has a couple more days left on the i assessed before it heads back down to earth with a three person crew on a soyuz spacecraft again and so it's then going to rejoin this historic relay to saatchi for the kickoff in february picks now just to give everyone an idea of what's going to happen after the walk takes place obviously they have very serious cosmonaut work to take care of so they will be building a platform for a high resolution. camera on one of the holes one of the work stations out there and then they'll be relocating a foot restraint to help in future spacewalks and also a deactivate an experiment package out there so they have work to do after this takes place but of course this is the first job of the day is taking the olympic
torch on a spacewalk and it is. slow going but it definitely is fun to see in fact. when i'm not live i'm taking pictures with my camera phone as is everybody just because it's so amazing to actually be part of this and get to see on these huge screens right here at star city not only do we see only huge screens but we can hear the engineers talking to the cosmonauts and hear their responses come to the microphones back to these guys we're actually seeing this all happen right right in front of our eyes and it's just it's like nothing i've ever experienced just it's an amazing thing and. i just wish that more people could be part of it. and you can catch all the highlights of the two of his journey into space on our website or to you don't we also had a chance to talk to the cosmonauts carried the symbol of the olympics into open space and that video is available online as well.
fresh reports in the u.s. suggest the cia has been paying millions of dollars every year to american telecoms giant eighteen to me for that price the company allegedly provides access to its millions of subscribers spies can apparently browse through phone call database and that includes international calls germany brazil have submitted a draft resolution to the u.n. on safeguarding privacy and restricting mass surveillance but we discussed the issue with journalist david seaman and he says america's government is involved in a form of techno terra. it's a huge company that has its footprint all over the globe and they're just being paid to hand out this customer information is a clear violation of the fourth amendment and customers have nowhere to go because i'm sure he is not alone in this sort of practice why are they tracking the communications of private citizens who have no connection to crime or terrorism what is their real goal here if this is a form of i think a light form of terrorism where people are becoming afraid to use their own technology on their own devices it's really it's kind of orwellian and the
explanation they gave for it doesn't make a lot of sense to me china is looking to take advantage of america's mistakes in the middle east the genie is using the term caused by walls to do some serious business and even some of the countries like egypt are turning into a real opportunity as bill true explains. this is north cairo where egypt's burgeoning chinatown has now planted its roots restaurant owner. says the chinese community here is thriving despite the political turmoil. most chinese come here for study or to call the muslim chinese minorities i opened my restaurant recently i know the political situation here is difficult but it doesn't affect chinese businesses it's a good place to live as us egypt relations soured after american officials with the help keep the military and economic assistance in october egypt has hinted at cozying up to other super powers like china and the list say to china it's more
about its political expansion gaining clout with one of the region's main players rather than finance we have sixty three agreements i mean different cultural political egypt is central country in the arab region and it's very useful to have good relations developing relations with us because we have a say in the region merging turn of the chinese embassy in cairo says although two thousand and thirteen was a turbulent year for egypt the country's exports to china increased by a staggering one hundred thirteen percent we were happy to see this figure we tried to make more efforts. to reach the. one billion very small egypt's economy which had heavily relied on its terrorism market has taken a pounding after two and a half years of revolution and regime change and with cairo and washington at
loggerheads it looks like egypt might keep looking eastwards. r.t. cairo. my colleague kevin owen spoke about china's resource hunger with author and investor jim rogers he told us beijing's playing finder's keepers across the entire world. china is trying to secure natural resources all over the world africa south america central asia himself said the beijing success is build on washington's failures what do you think. well certainly if you look around the world it will certainly see there's a lot of truth to that the chinese have more or less. they're all over africa they're buying plantations and everything else america's got very little presence in africa now time is making inroads in the middle east and it's going to get a lot of oil from iran going forward it looks as though china may even start getting oil from iraq you know america says that they were
a liberated iraq in the end and maybe the chinese who get the oil for a long time and rest in the middle east help push up oil and gas prices all over the world well today's report looks at how consumers end up paying. many demonstrator seeds a bonfire i burning of energy bills to voice their opposition to rising cost of fuel burning their energy bill is like burning your draft card you know during the vietnam war they burned their their draft cards burning your energy bill is similar in that you don't want to join up forces with the corrupt big six energy companies in the u.k. that are their financial terrorism so if you don't want to support financial terrorism of the big six energy companies here in the u.k. you would burn your energy bill i suggest get a thousand people on the millennium bridge here in london to get together and burn their energy bill in unison.
this is all t. not here mostly more news still to come for you stay with us. the president of the boss and instead eric rosengren said that. morale improves low rates and bond buying will continue yes the beatings will continue until. so listen up you smelly consumer peasants and rotting dead grounds because the fed will continue to beat you to a bloody pulp intil you smile smile like we're all wal-mart greeters have they not been fired last year and spend spend spend like every man's mortgage debt is his castle. speak
your language. news programs and documentaries in spanish as to your. stories. visit. back to our top story now here in r.t. iranian lawmakers accusing france of blackmail during talks over the nuclear program we go shushan sort of crucial stage between tehran and six world powers where we can now go live to geneva and talk to a certain syria who is following the negotiations to see what's all these unexpected obstacles that have suddenly emerged in these talks that appear to been
going very well up until now. well it has it has indeed it has been going quite well in the sense that the leaders who were giving statements were always quite optimistic albeit also expressing some caution but we did hear words for example from the a british foreign minister william hague saying that they should it seems at the moment in order to reach a deal that it looted the world for a long time those are quite quite positive words everything we heard the u.s. talking about narrowing gaps when it came to issues but then from the very beginning this skepticism really has been coming from france in the beginning they just said that to ease rails concerns had to be taken into consideration if any agreement is indeed reach we know israel has been very uncomfortable with this with netanyahu the premier of israel warning that this is a bad deal however right now france is suggesting that they are all there are conditions that must be met by iran one of its main concerns for instance is the a process in establishing your
a new man which met another demand from france and it's been suggested by the foreign minister is a haunting of the iraq you know heavy water reactor that's something iran does not want to do now aside from that there are also words that were spoken by the foreign minister that might have insulted also the rain and because he's a lawyer five years had said that france didn't want to be part of a con game and that the final draft of final draft texas too favorable to iran now the lawmakers of iran have. so that sounds really has been hindering these talks that have indeed been calling it blackmail it hasn't gone unnoticed here in peace talks that france has been really taking quite a hard line from the very beginning is some of sort of servers saying that even a hardline then be a us or the u.k. one western diplomat told the associated press that in fact new conditions that france is demanding are harsher than those demanded by the u.s. and other partners well as it stands right now the talks continue and there are suggestions from the ring of delegation that there could be a reception of the talks in about two weeks time thanks very much indeed for that
live update that's our correspondent on to say now well let's take a detailed look at the deal negotiation is i've been trying to put together this summit and first according to some sources the six world powers want to run to stop all activities to enrich uranium at twenty percent now they could then richmond at a lower level below weapons grade in addition iran would be obliged to limit the number of centrifuges it uses the mines also reportedly include more intrusive monitoring of tehran atomic facilities in exchange the international community could ease some of the sanctions that have crippled iran's economy so far and freezing of assets is also reportedly on the table. and of course we'll be following those developments in that summit throughout the day here on r.t. so a fever stolen more than a million dollars in digital money from an online bitcoin storage service hackers breached the host by manipulating flaws in the system which authenticates users
left no trace after almost completely emptying the virtual vault if this had happened a standard bank then of course you would get compensation because big point is digital cash with no regulation victims simply have nowhere to go plus the usual police methods of collecting evidence questioning witnesses is useless against online methods that can cover tracks now despite all that entrepreneur william believes a bit coin is still a county investment. what we see today in the world was a lie or crisis in greece and the failure in cyprus is regulation doesn't work. you have regulatory capture you just have system failure and the thing that makes a big point exciting for people who believe a bit point is the fact that it's an emergency system if it does require regulation just by that it really wasn't as good as we thought the last. three months on a website of the moment we got more stories for you including the hidden secrets of
sue is the story of what your sense able to detect tara labs from underground if you're wondering how it works it's there on our website right now. the storm is called make out of a brand new space discovery a six total object has been spotted by nasa telescope and also to system you check out all the details on that don't come. on you're going to like these. people. pleasure to have you with us here on t.v. today i'm researcher.
moskos at the center of the glamour world right now is beauties from all over the globe descend on the russian capital to find out who is the fairest of them all actresses models athletes all trying to outshine each other and claim the miss. some high profile guests who showed up including business magnate donald trump and president. pretty young women are not out of the ordinary here in moscow but. will be taken to a different level. later today stay with us here on r.t. to find out who is the most beautiful woman on the planet in the next twelve months at least. some of the world news headlines this hour the red cross fears over a thousand people have been killed by typhoon haiyan in the philippines rescue troops are continuing attempts to reach devastated areas and cut off communities super storm force evacuation of tens of thousands as well as massive power outages
and flooding is now heading towards vietnam where it is expected to make landfall on sunday. i even in the pakistani city of peshawar have held protests over u.s. drone strikes aimed to block a major military supply route in the area and it was struck by a recent drone strike on a taliban commander in the country's government says the attack puts proposed peace talks with militants in jeopardy as the taliban's leader calls for revenge. for the six people being killed and over a thousand injured by a suicide car bomb attack in the somali capital mogadishu the target was a hotel in the center of the city it's still unclear who was behind the blast but similar attacks have been staged by somali based militants and recent right by somali and kenyan troops killed at least thirty members of the group. but to brings up today for the monarchy about with a news team with more in just over thirty minutes from now in the meantime as
promised it is because i report him to. remember way back when we first talked about the first downloadable guns that could be printed out on a three d. printer at home while technology moves pretty quickly because british police have already busted in legal armory pretty out firearm parts and special three d. printers this technology may make gun control literally impossible in the same way that banning and burning books has become futile in the past they used to be able to just burn books or forbid them from being printed but in the age of the internet all you need is a scanner and an internet connection and the information that's found in a book cannot be destroyed because it is out there on the magical ether of the air
at so basically the near future any person with even half a brain and some patients can start making guns in their basement which means the gun control laws will basically become pointless because they'll never be able to catch all the people doing it nor will be able to take the guns not even obama or the hardest of hardcore liberals this technology could be the best thing to happen to the second amendment ever but i shust my opinion. no c n n the m s n b c news. lately but the fact is i admire their commitment to cover all sides of the story just in case one of them happens to be accurate. that was funny but it's closer to the truth i think. it's because one politician. the mainstream media works side by side the joke is actually on here. and our teen years
we have a different thread. because the news of the world just is not this funny i'm not laughing dammit i'm not how. you guys talk to the jokes well handled in the sense that i've got a. big fuck for. everybody so if you do the job the price is the only industry specifically mention in the constitution and. that's because a free and open price is critical to our democracy shredder. in fact the single biggest threat facing our nation today is the corporate takeover of our government and our crafts difficult we've been a hydrogen lying handful of transnational corporations that will profit by
destroying what our founding fathers once told us i'm tom hartman and on this show we reveal the big picture of what's actually going on in the world we go beyond identifying the problem truck rational debate and a real discussion critical issues facing america ready to join the movement then walk a little bit which. is actually what happened that day i don't know but a woman i killed. piers later is when i got arrested. for a crime i did not do. we have numerous cases where police officers lie about polygraph results you get innocent people to confess to police officers don't beat people anymore i mean it just doesn't happen really. in the course of interrogation why because there's been this is lightman know because the psychological techniques
are more effective in obtaining confessions than physical abuse they were off taking they could do what they wanted they can say what they wanted and there was no evidence of what they did or what they said. i max kaiser welcome to the kaiser reporting now the president of the boston. eric rosengren said that. morale improves low rates and bond buying will continue yes the beatings will continue until lorella improves so listen up you smelly consumer presence and rotting debt groans because the fed will
continue to beat you to a bloody impoverished pulp intil you smile smile like we're all wal-mart greeters how they not been fired last year and spend spend spend like every man's mortgage debt is his castle smile and spend smile and spend repetitious like a japanese sexpot or the abuse in capital destruction will continue the understand i'm saying here the boston fed is saying that they're going to continue the financial beatings until morale improves this is very pull pot like very dictatorial like states or what is that what's going on here well the saying is the beatings will continue until morale improves is often commanders in the military who say that to their abused soldiers and you see this in the central banks is that their command and control their authoritarian they're demanding that it's you the grunts that got it wrong we're doing the right thing you're the ones that are you
need your morale improved now eric rosengren of the boston fed told the boston business journal that the fed is prepared to keep these low rates bond buying for what may seem like a long time now of course beatings often feel like they're going on for a longer than they actually did yet won't look they are saying that the low rates and bond buying or quantitative easing will continue until a ploy picks up. but this is really not the point at all for their bond buying and quantitative easing that the point is to jack up asset prices for their friends in the speculative bubbles and real estate and in the stock market employment numbers are crashing because of quantitative easing because of bond buying so this is remarkable because just like some frickin dictator out in the go go land of nowhere.
