4:00 am
some of the good luck on the, not about the middle chopsticks on the look on top of it. i the, this is all tens national. these are all headlines protests, the empty stadiums in a proven infected asked me for an edge. not quite the opening, sorry many they were hoping for, but toto is gearing up fritz delayed olympic game also has been in jerry's ice cream, gets frozen out. and israel, how the company stopped sales and occupied palestinian territory economic terrorism support for human rights. we debate the issue an american company caving in to, to, to a mob demand. they can take
4:01 am
a moral stand and say, well, i don't want to do anything with that product. and so much for world war tanya. questions are raised over the decline of what was, was the most powerful navy in the world, as it turns out, only one naval to store. it's fully operational now. ah, bring you the stories that others might not. this is all the international i from. hello and welcome good. have you? well, our top story say the opening ceremony will be long anticipate to tokyo, 2020 olympic games is just a few hours away. but the out in the say isn't as celebratory as might have been hoped. over at cases have risen to $106.00 with 12. in fact is athletes living in the 11 pic village? the news comes, i was all across the city that the spice. can you daily infections but still the
4:02 am
president of the international impact committee and says the games can be held safely? restrictions mean that's the 1st time in history, no domestic, all overseas spectators will be allowed to attend. does all tv up the trunk reports . i control this, he doesn't end with the pandemic rules. the whole world is talking about how the pandemic has taken its toll on the olympics. and it's clear the games will be the oddest, most unusual, weird. choose whichever word you like in history. it looks as if the number one, elliptic official just wanted to go with the flow of weirdness when he got the nation that's hosting the big event wrong. and i were coming target is safe and secure games for everybody, for the athletes, for all the delegations, and most importantly, also for the chinese people. project nice people. anyway, the locals won't be able to enjoy any of the actual arena vibes because the arena's
4:03 am
are supposed to be empty. and so the newly updated a lumping moto faster, higher, stronger together also sounds a bit weird. physically, there ain't going to be that many people in tokyo, standing or sitting together empty stadiums must be depressing for the athletes, but probably not as depressing as the rules for staying in the olympic village. a band on leaving the cobit free zone gps trackers. only 90 seconds allowed for conversations in the mix zone. only 10 minutes devoted for one meal having to fly out of japan. once your tournament is over. this is how we keep credit safe in the olympic dining hall. we sometimes then put these gloves on before we touch anything . we go and grab one of these trays. a individual try has been sanitized and washed . is a pattern of the bottom floor of the dining hall as we walk around. obviously we've got i'm awesome in every little keep cool disinfecting why?
4:04 am
so we walk down everything that we're going to touch the screen, the side of everything. it makes me time conversations pretty difficult because it's hard to get through them, but the metal ceremonies might also make the winters feel a bit lonely. they will be presented to the athlete on a tray and then the athlete will take the metal him or herself. it will be made sure that the person who will put the metal on the tray will do so only with disinfected gloves so that the athlete can be sure that nobody touched them before . athletes also have to get used to fragile beds, which have been dubbed anti sex. although thanks to social media, we've already learned that beds aren't that useless in this peculiar aspect. athletes will use beds made of cardboard frames, but they've been assured the cardboard beds won't collapse. during sex, the organizers haven't given up on the tradition of giving away thousands of condoms,
4:05 am
but athletes will only be able to use them after they check out till the very final days of preparations before the opening ceremony. it wasn't clear if the olympics would go ahead, despite the overwhelming anti cove it measures athletes are testing positive, the nerves county has been on for a while. and it seems to be just as pacey as the metal count, while the city of tokyo itself is under a state of emergency daily case growth numbers have gone back to the peaks of winter, and the locals would usually be so proud to be living in a whole city are now mostly against the event. one recent poll showed almost 80 percent. we're not happy with the decision not to cancel the whole thing. this explains the protests. the cancel, lillian, because holding their lympics will cause mutated trains to spread which will endanger our lives. i think it is wrong to have the lympics in the midst of the
4:06 am
corona pandemic. i wonder about the government's stance of colon for self restraint among the general public. well, the same time being adamant about the lympics. someone else who's already made tokyo. 2020. i. e. 2021. standing as laurel hubbard, the 1st ever transgender olympic athlete. she was born male and will compete among female weight lifters. this caused quite a stir was summoned sports community going as far as saying that the i o c betrayed women by allowing this while the transgender are celebrating this historic milestone for them. the whole thing feels like a bad joke, left change in opportunities and missed for some athletes, meadows and the limpid qualifications. and we are powerless. i do believe that everyone should have access to sports, but not at the expense of others. bosses including transgender efforts have been in
4:07 am
place in the olympics and paul lympics since 2004 laurel hubbard, is the 1st to qualify. and 154000 olympians and barling bins over the last 17 years . trans people believe in sports. and finally, in tokyo has become official athletes will be allowed to make political gestures and statements, but only before the competition begins. nothing like that is still allowed at the podium. so some teams have already announced they will be taking the ne, well, that was easy to expect. however, when athletes were pulled 70 percent said they were against any protests anywhere at the olympic venues. aud unusual weird. have you chosen the right word? economic terrorism. that's how the israeli president has slammed the growing international movement to boycott his country over its treatment of palestine. it comes off the ice cream round. ben and jerry stopped sales and what it describes as
4:08 am
occupied territories. we believe it is inconsistent with our values for ben and jerry's ice cream to be sold in the occupied palestinian territory. we also hear and recognise the concerns shared with us by our fence and trusted partners. now it's just no. oh no. well, as i was saying, not, not me was not to everyone's a lot of people i'll play to videos consult, spinning beneficiaries products on social media stateside. some retailers have shown solidarity with israel by dropping reducing stock of the ice cream brand on the background. of course, to all of this is the palestinians consider as well and occupy and accused the country of crimes allegations as well denies inside palestine pops on surprise. me those why supports the move and i, we sit for the decision and any company that boy because these railway occupation,
4:09 am
we hope the whole world will boycott israeli product. and also we're pleased with the company's decision will support all companies that buy caught these rarely occupation and always railey settlement because of the war crimes and crimes they're committing against palestinians. one of the showed i feel happy because there are companies that have a conscience knowledge of the legality of settlements in the palestinian territory . when an american company makes such a decision, and it is one of the largest the most widespread companies in the world, it is a beautiful thing. well, been in charge, this is the latest and a growing list of companies which have decided to boycott is wrong in issue that sees tempers. flower both sides, hear it all t we put up for debate. i don't think this is gonna make a bit of difference in israeli policy because it's so clearly so transparently an american company caving in to, to, to a mob demand that what we're seeing is some consumer power on the rise. this is not
4:10 am
about the, you know, video, for example, advising or lobbying supermarkets to stop selling. been in jerry's foods and products. this is about consumers. i think the significance of this, however, is that this is coming from a u. s. company and a few months back the u. s. was going completely in a different direction. they were recognizing in jerusalem as is really and moving forward to recognizing the occupied territories as such, the left wing mom tries to take lots of complex situation like policing in america . we're like israel conflict with her neighbors and turn them into clear black and white. right and wrong when that's not the reality. if consumer power is growing, now you can call that left his mob or whatever. you know, if people see george floyd being suffocated under the knee of a policeman,
4:11 am
then will sympathize and you can call that left is small but, but i think it's just natural that people simplified and take action. they can take a moral stand and say, well, i don't want to do anything with that product. that's the kind of double standard of people say offensive things across the globe. you mentioned what happened in minnesota where's been injurious boycott minnesota. i could point out more than offensive things being done in countries around the world. oppression being done, countries around the world. where is the boy there when we're just going to focus in on israel and say, uh huh. someone in israel did something that was offensive to an error and therefore we must boycott israel. it does suggest to me the sort of absurd double standard in this absurd obsession. that does make me make me very suspicious of an anti semitism at work issue of settlement with she's not, you know, happening one month ago or one year ago. it has been happening for, you know, a century or something. people are being kicked out of their houses, sometimes violently,
4:12 am
sometimes under the premise or the guys of law and other people, other ethnic city coming and taking their place. you know, this has gone too long and every now and then because this issue is being solved, then it will resurface longstanding grievance every now and then you know, is shown bear in front of everybody and people remind themselves to make a moral stance. we're seeing a different path emerging in the middle east. think we're seeing countries like the united arab emirates, bahrain morocco saying you know what, what's best for our joint future in the middle east jewish era, but like muslim in jewish like it's not boy cutting and shunning, but actually coming together, working together, investing together, collaborating together, and i would humbly suggest that the united arab emirates model abraham affords model of investment in collaboration and mutual recognition will produce a better future for everyone in the middle east than some sort of silly boy cutting,
4:13 am
pushed by americans who knew very little about the reality on the written one space to the most powerful navy in the world. but now it's marine forces are apparent. if floundering that's off to it transpired that only one of 6 world navy destroys this garden suitable for service with fish raise your situation is operation unacceptable. so next up, autism or garrity, of all the while the person can overrule the waves again. britain has made quite the splash recently, the cowboy flora into russia's territorial waters, off the coast of crimea, all ukrainian waters. if you were a british captain and itching for an excuse to antagonize the russians place your order. those about a big splash as i say, but it was bravado the supposed show of full symbolized, but a tremendous defendant sailing into russian gun ranges was actually
4:14 am
a bluff as it emerged that all other destroyers are in for repairs. h m, a defender recently at the center of a diplomatic grove with russia following the voyage of the korean peninsula is the only vessel of the class without and issue. the other 5 type, 40 fives, all need work, either planned or due to problems developed while it see. it's a good thing, but it didn't break down and caught me in waters. the last thing the royal navy needs is a rush and tug boat coming to its rescue or a chinese one following on from the queen elizabeth strike groups and no girl deployments. the united kingdom will permanently assign 2 ships in the region from later this year. big blad britain has i'm not entirely sure the chinese will be all that impressed, given recent events by which i mean breakdowns but big plans. nevertheless,
4:15 am
that easy. the rule navy can scrounge together enough operational ships. so 2 of them, which as british assures, have shown can be a challenge that ship experiences propulsion problems. as we have seen across the top $45.00 family than our care group would have to be forced to lean on an a to ally, to ensure that we have destroy protection. that really indicates bottom line that we need a bigger navy rule, but tanya rules, the waves, the old song goes truly times bears know what not that the british are giving up. again. big black, 24000000000 pounds earmarked for a new fleet. we are going to use extra spending to restore britons position as the foremost naval power in europe. and until then, it seems, britain will depend on others to rule the waves in question is, is everyone in nato ready to fight and die and unintended hypothetical war sparked
4:16 am
by another british stunt? because it would be extremely embarrassing if they aren't still ahead last week that floating in western europe may have painted the more problem still, for germany's hardest hit region, the details are not much more shall break. i ah ah ah ah ah ah ah,
4:17 am
the ah, the democratic dominated the select committee investigating the events of january 6 on capitol hill has been constituted and will start proceedings next week. will be merely political theatre, a proverbial lunch from food buy on national display. one thing is for sure these proceedings will reflect deep political division. fagley finding the truth looks to be of secondary importance. ah, hello again now a week off to definitely flood the cause, large scale damage and disruption people in one german region are now being forced to reckon with new woes with coded vaccination stalled and drinking water polluted
4:18 am
with sewage. me i love, i guess i'll look callbacks. nation center. we're hitting the catastrophe and his clothes and we all would have had to drive very far to do vaccinated. come in. i'm here for my 2nd vaccination. i was supposed to get my 2nd shot from my doctor, but he was also victim of the flood. i'm also here with a charge group to help people who are affected because i was fortunately barely hit with you. mention is on time and i expect the number of covert cases most areas arise in the next few days. if the people that work together in the confined space and the transmission corona is easier because everyone is not wearing mouth. nose protection, at least not in the pictures you see on tv. we can see that human to human transmission remains the main method of transmission.
4:19 am
and we had the safest drinking water in the whole world. it was almost all over now . we have never had such a situation in germany, at least not this extreme. there is no difference between drinking water and sewage at the moment. the water that flowed through the streets and the villages was a mixture of excrement and rain. water contamination is very high. you shouldn't inhale anything or swallow anything because they're also environmental toxins and things like that ah, is fish. as you see, it is terrible. everything destroyed. many people don't have any accommodation. the businesses also closed. it's like a nightmare. so much more financial help is necessary because it has caused some damage. the whole infrastructure must be rebuilt. many buildings must be ripped
4:20 am
down and rebuilt all the breach of here. we have just one bridge out of around 10 left, just one bridge. to get to our side, we now have to travel through the whole village. so we are really reliant on financial resources and we also don't have any work. everything has been destroyed, no jobs, and no money any more. germany is not the only country devastated by severe floods. the central chinese problems of hannon has also been inundated off to facing the heaviest rains. in decades. the natural disasters lead to 2033 deaths and 250000 people being moved to safety. authority say $3000000.00 have been effected in total while law and cannot make losses are estimated around $119000000.00. the deluge has also wiped out transport infrastructure. unreached water now seems to be receding in some parts of the
4:21 am
region, leaving the huge task of carrying it all out. a local reporter told us how people are coping that the police reached isolated villages and mico township to save lives. the cost of rain seemed impossible to navigate, so that it was severe. rhodes were gone with no telecommunications signals were light supplies were insufficient. that more than 23000 people in the storm had gone easily in central china. so no problems have been relocated in the past. 48 hours, a torrential rent on tuesday flooded the town over night and triggered land slides on police rushed, reinforce die, and repair roads. why would all the local roads out of the town are ready faced? the national emergency department last night deploy drone telecommunication devices and our mobile phones finally got signal. joe, who aided the fight against cody $900.00 and neighboring who the province last year
4:22 am
joined the front line. we will you have no idea older people, even those injured have joined together to help each other in this disaster being a part of it has been so worthwhile. the rest during this forecast to move north, providing a chance for the parents disaster reconstructions, particularly for those park businesses. gimme me. barely thought we didn't expect such a disaster. a water inside the store was at least one meter high. all i can do is clean up. i haven't thought about what to do next. many residents like monster have to rely on instant noodles and bottled water. the local authority, say the prestige also include koby night and prevention, helping with traffic and the resumption of gas and electricity supply georgia agency and in the of the province. the last year has been rather seen violent protests and major political moves in support of racial justice across the
4:23 am
us. that seems that was for nothing as a recent pulse. so it's a 57 percent of american say things are not going so well between black and white populations on t. kennedy looks. what exactly is gone wrong? without unity, there is no peace, only bitterness and fury. those the words of joe biden who pledge to heal the nation while the president might be quite disappointed to learn more than half of the nation. does that relations between the black and white population have now hit an unprecedented rock bottom. for the 2nd consecutive year, us adults positive ratings of relations between black and white americans are their lowest point in more than 2 decades of measurement. the research shows that while some white people remain optimistic about improving relations, the black population is losing hope. surveys show that police brutality is one thing. the black community is quite unhappy about it. this is showing that one in every 1000 black men is killed by the police. this and
4:24 am
a number of other issues resolved and only about a 3rd of the american population being happy about how the black community is treated. black people are also on satisfied about how the new administration handles racial issue. leaders from black lives matter met with white house officials earlier this year to discuss our policy agenda. and while we appreciate the chance to talk with them, we are surprised by the lack of progress on issues that matter to black people. the same communities that so strongly supported, biden harris during last year's election. people in the white community are starting to claim that they are pressed as well. take the issue of critical race theory. many white voices are speaking up and claiming it is rewriting history. number of white people, according to the survey feel now that they are under represented in relief programs, especially after the rise of the black lives matter movement. americans. poor assessment of black white relations stands alone in their assessments of relations between other u. s. racial and ethnic groups,
4:25 am
majority of americans rate relations between hispanic and white people, black and hispanic people, asian and white people. and like an asian people, as good with people being drawn apart. the white house is failing to help divisions and overcome the tensions of previous years, making the problem more of an issue in today's america. so this is not surprising at all. it's of the unfortunate result. not having a reckoning with the past the present. and unfortunately, potentially the future of a country that really has never come to grips with how much racism is ensconced. and it's very fabric. we saw really what surface the, the backlash of this country. having the temerity in the gall to elect a black president really surfaced a lot of people who had been harboring anti black and racist feelings. anti immigrant feelings in listen feelings for a very, very long time. a lot of distance between people create competition other in this
4:26 am
person's coming from my job or this person's coming to harmony in my neighborhood. so social media has had a part in that, but also the programs of the united states government that i've been so rooted in hyper capitalism that they've actually split working class people apart because that's in the interest of hybrid capitalism. and then of course we've had just the very, very topic politics in this country. binding might be time for a new dictionary online on us ologist should now avoid using the word bod, while love, as must no longer talk about finis. not the confusion of a new and gardening group that was bound by facebook for mentioning a garden to this scene as a drug, or she was for women. the
4:27 am
who's ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah, ah ah, ah, ah, they just got notified by facebook the photo use for all walla walla onion, see it over the sexual and therefore cannot be advertised to be sold on their platform. can you see it? while for deep dive into any of this,
4:28 am
our stories all to dot com is the pace to to go lots of other source way to view that is the way i have a great me ah me. and i make no, you know, borders of mine to tease emerge . we don't have authority, we don't actually, the whole world needs to take action and be ready. people are judge, you know. 2 crisis we can do better, we should be better. everyone is contributing each in our own way, but we also know that this crisis will not go on forever. the challenge is paid for the response has been massive. so many good people are helping us. it makes us feel
4:29 am
very proud that we are together now the war on drugs nodded as a way to come back. a great problem. what's the one? it's part of the attitude of the nation, not just of north dakota. and it's got to be something that you could get elected. this time, the fight against drugs took a tragic. he told us that andrew was competing insurance form. this is way too dangerous for him to be doing. clearly they put him in harm's way. a rural college student does interest get shot in the head and found in a river like that. something else had to be happening. join me every thursday on the alex summon, show and i'll be speaking to guess in the world, the politics, sport,
4:30 am
business and show business. i'll see you then in the news hello and welcome to cross talk. we're all things considered. i'm peter labelle, the democratic dominated select committee investigating the events of january 6 on capitol hill has been constituted and will start proceedings next week. will it be merely political theater? a proverbial lunch room? food fight on national display? one thing is for sure these proceedings will, will like deep political divisions.
