6:00 pm
me, i mean the stories this i can lee and intakes that the cry of protest is claiming that the games will cause a waves new cases will than $100.00 people linked to the event of already tested positive. and this concerns, this is just the tip of the iceberg. also become questions, right? the decline of what was, was the most power navy in the world is it transpired that just one british naval destroyer is currently fully operational. i'm following a recent way of protecting cuba, the u. s. and then you run sanctions against the counter. be a nation with abide and administration shows no sign of backing down upon americans long time, right? ah,
6:01 pm
hello the welcome you watching asi international. now the olympic flame is burning and the long away to tokyo. some games have finally begun. however, the atmosphere is far from the festival. and that organizes that hopeful, while hopefully fireworks did light up the stadium. pro testers, voice their concerns about the spread of it. infections linked to the event of a ready jump 211013 among athletes. however, the president of the international limby committee does insist the games can be held safely, or they restrictions do mean. for the very 1st time in history, no spectators will be allowed to attend the training can i report the control the see? doesn't stop that. 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,
6:02 pm
weird choose which ever 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. and for all the delegations, and most importantly, also for the chinese people, japanese people. anyway, the locals won't be able to enjoy any of the actual arena vibes because b arenas are supposed to be empty. and so the newly updated a limping moto faster, higher, stronger together also sounds a bit weird physically, there ain't going to be that many people in tokyo, standing or fitting together empty stadiums must be depressing for the athletes. but probably not as depressing as the rules for staying in the olympic village. a
6:03 pm
ban on leaving the covert 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. first, we sanitized them, put these gloves on. before we touch anything, we go and grab one of these trays. a individual try has been sanitized and washed his hands of the bottom floor of the dining hall. as we walk around, obviously we've got i'm awesome in every little. keep cool there. disinfecting watch. so we walk down everything that we're going to touch the screen, the sides 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 winners 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
6:04 pm
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, 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 count 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,
6:05 pm
they the 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 council lim, because holding their lympics will cause mutated trains to spread which will endanger own lives. i think it is wrong to have the lympics in the midst of the corona pandemic. i wonder about the government's stance of calling for self restraint among the general public. well, the same time being adamant about the limpid someone else who's already made tokyo . 2020. i. e. 20. 21. hold standing is laurel hubbard. the 1st ever transgender olympic athlete. she was born male and we'll compete among female weight lifters.
6:06 pm
this caused quite a stir with some into 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, life changing 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 assets have been in place in the olympics and par 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 as 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'll be taking the
6:07 pm
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? i britain once boasted the most powerful navy in the world, however, it has become a shadow of its former self, which is one of his 6 destroys, currently ready for service. and there were warnings to the situation is operationally unacceptable. when it cast the f. as more 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 our itching for an excuse to antagonize the russians. james, you're
6:08 pm
a big splash, as i say. but it was bravado the supposed show of full symbolized, but h. m as defended sailing into russian gun ranges, was actually a bluff as it emerged that all other destroyers already for repairs. h m. a defender, recently at the center of a diplomatic grove with russia following the voyage of the cranium 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 boats 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 to ships in the region from later this year. big blad britain has. i'm not entirely sure the chinese will be all that impressed,
6:09 pm
given recent events by which i mean breakdowns but big plans, nevertheless, not 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 2 ally to ensure that we have destroy protection. that really indicates bottom line that we need a bigger navy rule, but tonya rule, 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 britain's position as the foremost naval power in europe. and until then, it seems, britain will depend on others to rule the waves. in the question is,
6:10 pm
is everyone in nato ready to fight and die and unintended hypothetical war sparked by another british stunt? because it would be extremely embarrassing if they aren't. the roads have turned into raging rib in sizes of painful or without power. not the devastating scene in ne turkey the moment it suffers more torrential flooding. severe rain has destroyed homes and overturn vehicles, and authorities have turned off electricity supplies as a safety precaution. and it does come to just the week after 6 people died. and 2 people went missing in previous flooding. a local reporter gave us the like not having just got a number towards him from our view, which is severely damaged by the flood. heavy rain started yesterday early in the morning. the river overflowed. you can see behind me a floating, destroyed a bridge across the river, causing it to the damage is really significant. 5000 citizens live in the small
6:11 pm
district on the black sea coast of turkey. many of the move to safety water flows of more than a 100 vehicles around the 100 commercial areas are affected. local, the suffering huge loss, the ground floor, apartments basements, 1st floor space damage from rising water level. in some places building the flooded up the 2nd floor, much of the furniture that has been destroyed. the water supply system has been damaged and people now have to get drinking water from municipal facilities. such seems a witness throughout the affected areas, rescues, civil defense groups. now working in the area, also evacuating people that support groups have been mobilized from cities nearby live with him. while residents have german region worst hit by last week's deadly floods struggling to peace, their lives together again, they are forced to deal with everything at the moment from access to restricted vaccines to broken sewage systems.
6:12 pm
me guess i'll look callbacks. nation center was heating the catastrophe and this close, 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 the victim of the law. i'm also here with a charge group to help people who are affected because i was fortunately barely hear me. benji mentioned this on time, and i expect number of covert cases in this area to rise in the next few days. the people that i worked together in a confined space and the transformational 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.
6:13 pm
and we had the safest drinking water in the home. well, it was almost start 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. i guess the water flowed through the streets and the villages was a mixture of agreement and rain. water contamination is very high. you shouldn't have anything else swallow anything because they're also environmental toxins and things like that. ah, fish. if you see this terrible thing destroyed, many people don't have any commendation. the businesses also closed. it's like a nightmare. so much more financial help isn't necessarily because it has caused some damage. the whole infrastructure must be rebuilt. many bill just must be ripped down and rebuilt all the breach of here. we have just one bridge out of
6:14 pm
around 10 left, just one bridge. to get to our the start 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 anymore. another news tonight, moon is in haiti, have been grieving at the funeral there, murdered president, as protest as to also took to the streets in the show of the political divisions that are tearing the caribbean nation. well, this is a picture from the funeral president of an l. more years was killed in his residence, allegedly by a group including 26, former colombian soldiers, 6 of which were trained by the u. s. military with protest surrounding funeral shots were reportedly fired on the us delegation. another of the guest ran to the vehicles where no injuries were reported. i still had few this hour been in jerry's
6:15 pm
ice cream, gets frozen out of israel after the company stopped sales in the pipe palestinian territory. but is it economic terrorism or support the human rights will debate the issue of the the the the the the, the, the, the, the the
6:16 pm
the raising prices that they're the ones you are dictating prices. so we're creating a monster here. we created a monster. we've got china economy zooming, pick and raise prices at will in no matter how high china raise prices for americans to buy their good buy. it's going to print more money to send to china. this is the worst is dopey and chinese finger trap that ever been invented. ah, welcome back with our teen ivy biden. administration has taken his 1st major steps against america's long time target cuba and slap sanctions on the country's defense
6:17 pm
minister and also in the lead security forces brigade. it is in response to lead human rights violations during anti government protests early this month. this is just the beginning, the united states will continue to sanction individuals responsible for oppression of the cuban people. what havens had taken to the streets, to vent their frustration over an economic crisis. and the government's handling of the pandemic along with food and medicine shortages. a number of factors where detained and the cuban president denied the rallies is a foreign provocation. he also blame to the problems on the long standing trade embargo imposed by the united states. no further steps expected from washington to include expanding its mission in havana, as well as giving in to pressure to help the cuban population such as lessing american send money, she relatives and friends there through a remittance scheme. now we spoke to latin american and caribbean studies, professor dunn sure about this,
6:18 pm
and he does say that other countries would be accused of meddling if they pursued the same policies. several weeks ago biting had said that a change in policy towards cuba was not on the menu, but suddenly following this, this backlash, this wave of anti cuba. anti socialism propaganda from the right wing from all sectors of the liberal elite. suddenly biotin is hyper focused on cuba, but the intention is the same as it has been to 1959. and this has nothing to do with the liberation of cuba. and everything to do with the re colonization of the u . s. is done everything in their power, diplomatically, no, terribly, economically and politically. to carry out their attempts to re colonize cuba. they blocked them off from access to technology, to the internet, to social media. so how hypocritical now the republican party and others claim that
6:19 pm
they doing everything to bring free, why fi in q was, if china or russia were trying to broadcast internet or the shows of cuba or radio . radio marquee is, they've done from miami, the cuban cuban americans. surely the us government would cry foul, so was russia's, was china here, across the spectrum of the mainstream media. yet, every day, cuba is there in the headlines. because the u. s. has been pushing regime change in cuba. it's $959.00 s a true agenda. serious us speaker nancy pelosi has rushed to defend the democrat lead select committee investigating the japanese safe capitol hill. rise after house minority leader, kevin mccarthy, accused her of an egregious abuse of power for rejecting. 2 republicans. he appointed to the panel. pelosi has created
6:20 pm
a sham process. house. democrats must answer this question. why are you allowing a lame duck speaker? to destroy this institution. this is the people's house, not pelosi, south, wednesday place, he blocked 2 of mccarthy's 5, nominate, stressing the participation could compromise the integrity of the investigation. both are known to be long time allies of the former president. donald trump. pelosi though accepted the the 3 yet that still failed to satisfy the minority leader who threatened to pull over his members from the committee and said to the republicans would instead run their own investigation into the incident. so a quick reminder then of the events under investigation on january the 6th from supposed to stormed capitol hill after he lost joe biden. in the 2020 presidential election shooting mel, a left, 5 people dead. we spoke to political honest ras, mussa know who calls the investigation,
6:21 pm
pointless this is ridiculous or entire investigation or get live a little side going off in a different direction. i don't think anything's going to come out of it. if you can be used for political purposes on either side, that's what's gonna happen. i think we're going to have to party something here. they're going to come up with different recommendations. really nothing going to come out of this. so i think it's, it's, unfortunately the traverse the spending money to investigate something like this. i think the most, the effort to be looked at the riots that occurred the previous summer. that's where we need to be from. now i can make terrors, and that's how these rarely presidents is labeled. growing international movement to boy caught his country over its treatment of palestine. it does come for ice cream, multinational been in jerry's fro sales within israeli settlements throughout the occupied west bank and east jerusalem. we believe it is inconsistent with our
6:22 pm
values for ben and jerry's ice cream to be sold in the occupied palestinian territory. we also hear and recognize the concerns shared with us by our fence and trusted partners. now it's just, there's no, oh no, but in response, some in israel and beyond to have shared videos of themselves throwing away its products in the us. retailers have also shown solidarity with israel by reducing or stopping supplies of the brand. israel denies accusations of occupying palestine or committing war crimes there, but palestinians have welcome the ice cream brands move as a step towards what they see as justice. and i, we support the decision and any company that boy cause these rail occupations. we hope the whole world will boycott israel. and i know we're pleased with the company's decision will support a company that by called these rarely occupation and always railey settlement
6:23 pm
because of the war crimes and crimes they're committing again. and i feel happy companies have a constant knowledge of the legality of settlement in the policy the entire time. when an american company makes such a decision work and it is one of the largest, the most widespread companies in the world. it is a beautiful thing that we've been in jerry's is just the latest and a growing list of companies that have decided to boycott israel. it is an issue that sees tempers flare on both sides and we put the sheep up for debate. i don't think this is going to 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 about the, you know, video, for example, advising or lobbying supermarkets to stop selling. been in jerry's
6:24 pm
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 situations like policing in america . we're like israel's 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 people see george floyd being suffocated under the name of a policeman. then we'll sympathize and you can call that lift is small but, but i think it's just natural that people sympathize and take action. they can take
6:25 pm
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 a sense of 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, we caught 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 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, sometimes under the premise or the guys of law and other people, other ethnic city coming and taking their place. you know,
6:26 pm
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 and jewish life is 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, the 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, pushed by americans who knew very little about the reality on the brand. i had earlier here an artsy international. thanks the company tonight. we're back again
6:27 pm
with headlines. more stories at the top of the the. ah ah me. it's like you're walking down a street in a tower and in the store and windows are negative. in
6:28 pm
depression, you tend to go into the store and buy those thoughts and take them home as if they're yours. in mindfulness, you walk down the street, you still see the sort storefront with the negative thoughts, but you don't go in and buy those gosh, the, the, the, the, the news years ago. very rude, previous emergency food 1015. right now, the children,
6:29 pm
the offspring of these acadias are crawling on me. there are more than $3000.00 species periodicals to kate is worldwide. they're found on every continent. 1 except in article, but it's only here in the eastern half the united states that we have 17 and 13 year periodical, kate, as part of what makes this so special, is this particular breed which we call breed 10 or brewed act, which makes ever much more mysterious x marks the spot. this is the most widely distributed brood of 17 years to kate has gone anywhere on planet earth, all the way from georgia to long island, new york, and west ohio, illinois in indiana. this means that in the eastern half of the united states, we're going to have billions, if not trillions of periodical cicada is interacting with tens of millions of human
6:30 pm
beings in their back yard. that's going to create some very interesting situation. oh i my name is melissa rose. i'm an artist off of long island, new york. and right now we're in south new york that my grandparents old house, this place from my childhood. the run around him, pick up the rocks outside with my grandma and find bugs and watch the cages emerge and it all really impacted me. and i didn't really realize until i ended up going to art school and pursuing my passion in bio art, which is what i consider myself. i'm a bio artist. i are.
