6:00 am
melissa, this kind of work and need it, and those who do it the ah, a sporting hero, or weak willed in the face of adversity. the opinion is divided over a tells us gymnast to quit, to olympic finals over mental health concerns. while german competitors in tokyo make us begin sexism, we debate if what's already being done. the walk games are becoming increasingly dominated by politics. i think it's a great opportunity. we've seen so many changes already, and i'm not where we should be confirmed because we don't want to be just a vehicle for the latest 5 that comes along. also ahead lithuania is tackling the
6:01 am
influx of illegal migrants, bonus authorities. there are we large measures to stem the flow use for silence only issue while at the same time slamming other states for a similar action ahead. this are you may find the holding footage, the sturdy. 6 role the u. s. sees another act of police brutality caught on camera with 2 officers in colorado charged after the violent arrest of a suspected trust officer wanted on felony charge. ah, one in the afternoon here in moscow this thursday, july, the 29th, i'm you know nice and you're welcome to the news our on our team. there's been more drama to tokyo olympics story, us gymnast simone,
6:02 am
bio sensationally pulled out of another final her 2nd in a matter of days considered one of the sports all time. great style said she was making the move to quote, focus on her mental health. and while some observers say the move is her greatest achievement, yet others claim the fleet. let her teammates dine when they needed her the most. i say put mental health 1st, because if you don't then you're not going to enjoy your sport and you're not going to succeed as much as you want to. so it's okay. sometimes the even set out the big competition to focus on yourself on tuesday doing the talk you lympics individual, all around competition and women's gymnastics sim on bias. one of the greatest athletes to ever grace the sport a for time on the big champion, quite surprisingly for many decided to withdraw from the, from the round and eventually the russian team or r o c. if you may, 1 gold in that discipline. first, it was cited does come on,
6:03 am
biles decided to withdraw to medical reasons. then it became clear as cited by the teams entourage. and by, by ourselves that this was a mental health issue. it has created quite a whirlwind of reaction. there are those who are strongly accusing and abusing simone bias for withdrawing that i would say spearheaded by piers morgan, a famous u. k. tv host, who well just fell short of accusing some on violence of being a chicken and checking out on her team. and i saw something that serial winners do a mental health issues. now the go to excuse for any poor performance in elite sport. what a joke just admits you did badly made mistakes. i must try to do better next time. kids need strong role models, not best nonsense. obviously that has created huge responds online and even some mainstream media jumped in. and if you look at the language that some of these mainstream media, like washington post and many others used,
6:04 am
you would think that simone biles actually won a gold medal rather than pulling out from the competition. whenever biles pulls on her leotard, it says, though she's tighten in a cape round her neck, have an american dominance, and also carry an agenda and an entire race. that's a heavy cape and it chokes. but it's one that exceptional black women and women of color are tall to wear because simply being great isn't good enough. for some reason. many of those media and bonded and commentators also decided to bring in her agenda her race into the story which is already creating another type of backlash because people cannot understand what is her decision to withdraw from one particular competition. something she has been preparing for for quite a while, because the lympics is quite important for any athlete in the world has to do with who she has, her skin color and things like that. so it's definitely creating
6:05 am
a major rift, and we have to wait and see where the simone biles decides to continue in this lympics a. she's a 4 time a champion in the olympics already. and obviously all eyes are on her in the u. s. thinking that she could win more, she went on instagram recently just saying how much of that weight on her shoulder is being hard on her. and may be this rift with such reactions coming from both sides would create even more pressure for the 24 year old gymnast with a very difficult boss or your, my colleague, re sushi, discuss those developments with a panel of guests mental health issue of simone biles. as she withdrew, i mean this must be the very, very difficult decision for do you think perhaps she's set an example by doing this is a topic has to be over the years and only recently are we talking to accept people with mental health? and i think the limits of the past examples why not expect i really feel that,
6:06 am
especially in, in kids they, they, they, they really try to years and years and they carry the contra shoulders is okay. have to be like, okay, i have mental health, i'm not going to be able to call the fact that she has withdrawn has both further attention to her. i mean, if she's sort of quietly underperformed and perhaps explained to the media that, you know, this is just one of those events. you can't be at her peak all the time and then quietly slipped away fine. but she really has made an announcement him put mental health health back on the map again. so the importance of mental health issue obviously shouldn't be underestimated about perhaps putting that onto the lympics as well as perhaps too much is a sporting event. it should be kept as a sporting event. if one is not ready for it, when really shouldn't, shouldn't be there. you can only find out sometimes, but you're not ready for it when you're there already. and we have plenty more few
6:07 am
on line, including this piece of questioning the meaning of brave and modern sports have been talking points over the past few days as we've been hearing. you can read all about it. so r t dot org debates over actions up the games didn't, and their german gymnast have chosen to wear a full body unit towards instead of the more traditional bikini cut lean towards, the decision was made to protest a suppose that sexualization of athletes. and while some find the move in important step towards a quality. busy other say, it's just another case of trying to make sport political. so what does our panel think about the increasing attention being paid at the games to non sporting matters? this whole issue of uniform and the sexual is ation of women has to go quite soon and it can be so very simply. you just say, here are the uniformed men and women,
6:08 am
no different, any sport that tries to segregate male and female on the basis of uniform is really back in the 20th century. one of the biggest things about the pattern and your skills and the, and that's what you're judging, not charging the uniform and what, what people don't realize the sexualization of women will make me very self conscious when wearing were beating clothing, which my actually performance. so really, if you really care about the school and the athletes and this year, we should allow them to feel confident and what they're wearing, doing a bit of a problem be on the one hand the olympics is designed to extol, abuse in the perfection of the human body operating at peak efficiency, so it's there to be admired. well the other hand, we have contributed lympics, who may feel uncomfortable with that being late in particular. maybe there's a case for some element of choice, but in the same time we don't want to lose the essence of what they're lympics is. are you afraid perhaps that non sport issues or political ones in particular for example, could,
6:09 am
could become main talking points in the future olympics. now i'm not worried, i think it's a great opportunity. we've seen so many changes already. i'm not worried. i still feel like eventually it will kind of not 5 down, but we will respect respect and i'm happy to do it to different lympics. let's put it that way. it's an a everyone watching on tv and watching, you know, 68 tests and see the stadium with everything they can come, pretend i'm enjoying it as much as i do. other olympics i have to say, well it should be confirmed because we don't want it to be just a vehicle for the latest. 5 that comes along. lympics should represent social moles as they change, but it needs to present its own century old brand needs to keep, continue to keep that. wow. so that we have when we see the olympics are there with their own specific procedures and, and, and habits and ways. and that's the beauty olympics, that's what we want to say. we don't want to make it to the temporary to try and
6:10 am
justify weighed following statement. almost 200 illegal border crossings in a single day. that's what miss u. n is currently facing with the total number of the chain migrants dramatically spiking to some 3 follows in the summer. in the european nation, vilios have been denied for bringing and drastic measures to stem the flow ortiz. charlotte dubin ski has been looking at how the use position on the issue was dramatic reaching. you opinion say that all all supposed to be equal partners. however, for some countries being in the gang seems of more benefits done for others. take the current situation in lithuania, which is going at the moment with an influx of migrant, difficult times call for difficult decisions. this will drastically change the way you immigration policy. it includes the tension of migrant
6:11 am
a bond on the release of those who are in detention for 6 level. they will be no right to a translator to obtain information about the process. they will also curb the right to appeal decisions and to allow for deportation while is appeals of being examined. do whatever it takes to absolutely ensure that only people who are persecuted for political reasons and have a good ground to look for a political shelter stay here. has been created specifically to deal with my gordon's coming over from neighboring batteries. it's awaiting you and you accuse minutes of using them as a political to as relations continue to sour. but critics say the law is a step to fall. the law is a potential human rights violation and it doesn't correspond to you directives. it
6:12 am
contrives the current bad situation in lithia and in detention centers in law and lives vulnerable people and even more vulnerable situation. even criticism from the way news form a chair of the constitutional court. the proposals which are unconstitutional are based on the premise that all foreigners who cross the border are 2nd class human beings not entitled to constitutional rights conditions in the must detention centers have also been denounced with allegations migrants being stripped to fetch telephones. they can only got signed for one hour, a day, pressure that some say has led to people attempting to take that law. everyone detained in this building is suffering psychologically. i already ran away from iraq, since it's a prison, it is the same here. meanwhile, lithuania is embarking on a massive project to keep wouldn't be migrant out. a plan to cover almost the
6:13 am
entirety of its food with batteries, with raise a wire. so what do you think? let you and use border is an external you border which is currently experiencing an unprecedented influx of migrants and asylum seekers. these people, many of them vulnerable need urgent support, such as food and shelter. the european union and other member states will not leave with you and you're alone in this difficult situation. so very supportive, definitely, except when another in human hungry took a similar action. only use external border with serbia following a wave of migration in 2015. the tone from brussels couldn't be any more different. we cannot accept the basic values of the european union, a being so seriously breached any one like hungry who built fences against war, refugees, or breaches. press freedom and the independence of the justice system should be
6:14 am
temporarily or permanently excluded from the you. last year's top court found hungry, guilty of breaking, assign the rules. it says it mashed up the lose of protecting vulnerable migrant by denying them the right to apply for asylum and by forcibly to putting them. meanwhile, as other states, such as greece also look to build rules only use external border to keep migrants out. russell's hasn't so much as batted and eyelid leading some to feel that in the, you know, partnerships are indeed equal. another of police brutality has been caught on camera in the us. 2 officers in colorado have been charged over the violent arrest of an armed, mixed race man, a warning you may find the following, images disturbed. oh, what do i oh,
6:15 am
i do. put your hands on front of you. okay. don't stop it all. 6 i don't while the police officers identified the suspect kyle vinson being wanted by authorities for several offences . after 2 other men fled, mister vincent appeared to initially comply with their commands during the arrest, but resisted while being hunkered. he was subsequently choked force faced on the ground on pistol with by an officer. vincent was then taken to hospitals needing treatment. the officers in question have since been charged with use of excessive force. the aurora police chief, how strongly condemned their conduct does not police work. we don't train this, not acceptable. the definition of police brutality is itself is a problem. you are you, you use the force necessary to effect in a rust. you keep yourself safe to keep the citizen safe and you actually keep the
6:16 am
person that you're arresting safe. the job of the police officer, the street car is not to punish. that's the job of the course. so white edition, not a punishment for conviction. if so, if a police officer was aware, as was in the case of derrick shelven, that he was being video camera right. your body cameras recording you and they were this comfortable with their actions. there is a serious epidemic, a serious problem. and then police officers, history needs to be looked into. we need to look at how many other times is that person been accused, or have they taken excessive force beyond the level of what they were lawfully around the allowed to use? because if somebody feels this comfortable to get this out of control on video camera guarantee is that the 1st time they've done this. as an incident like us defined, the police movement is not properly communicated to the public. the d from the police moment is a political card. it's what the politicians are using to wind up bolstering your base for more voting. it really just removes programs funding for certain areas for
6:17 am
police officers. we've been discussing the issue of policing in the u. s. were known to american evangelist, franklin grim it was given, consoled to several american president. he also shared his thoughts with south sky taylor on other issues, including the current state of relations between washington and moscow. if you take in my country, be funding the police. okay. seattle, they found the police department and the mayor would not support the police department. and this few days ago they had a number of shootings and murders and, and the american is now asking for more police. okay. well, it's a little late, but yes, this is woke, culture is gone too far. when like with george floyd and my heart
6:18 am
was broken when i, when i watched them and really said i came breathed and a police officer just ignoring it, just broke my heart. but there are tens of thousands of policemen that are wonderful men and women that do their job every day that risk their lives to protect the men and women of the streets and times of the way the youth saying how the u. s. act when you came in 2015, i think you also posed in front of the map of russia, which nowadays counts as collusion. you are very brave man, but you also during that visit met with russian politicians at least one that i know is under us. sanctions did not have any repercussions. how is that received? i don't believe in a sanctions. i think the sanctions heard. i don't think the sanctions do anything that make people more mad and i look as sanctions that we put on other countries around the world and it's usually other people that get hurt. the smaller people get hurt and i would,
6:19 am
i would lift those sanctions unless get on the business. the relations between our 2 countries is the lowest has been made since the cold war. and i find this very troubling. we have so much in common with russia, with the russian people. and we need to find ways to work together. it doesn't mean that we have to agree on everything. but we need to be working together and talking together and listening to one another is so important. there's, when you look at the needs of the world with american russia working together, i think we can help solve so many of the problems. i think, i think starting relationships with people themselves is extremely important. encouraged the president trump every time us with him to try to work with russia. the problem we had is the media turned on president wrong. they gave out
6:20 am
false information on president trump accused russia interfering with elections and these types of things. and it just divided our country and made it almost possible impossible for president trump to do anything. so ahead in the program that helps threaten to run raleigh in lebanon. what the us warning millions of lives are risks because of water shortages more on after this. i from germany, where along to the find that the, the biomass fly in say the weight of flying insects fell by 76 percent in the last 26 years. so instead of just becoming much, much less common,
6:21 am
which means all the jobs that they do are not being done anymore, and that that is the real danger. and that's what's going to impact on me. ah ah ah ah
6:22 am
welcome back to the program an earthquake measuring a hefty 8.2 in magnitude has struck off. busy the coast of the us state of alaska, a synonymy warning has been issued with people advice to tick to higher ground footage on social media showed building, shaking during the tremors and sirens wheeling across the quick prone states after shock. sound been recorded as far away as new zealand authorities in hawaii also issued a su, nami warning, but that was later council. it is the biggest, quick in the last can region since 1964 that was one, a 9.2 magnitude fence was recorded. the strongest in north american history. chicago's marriage say she isn't sorry for her decision to grunt interviews only to non white reporters, claiming a triggered quote, much needed debate. laurie lightfoot implemented the hugely controversial policy
6:23 am
back in may. i would absolutely do it again. i'm unapologetic about it because it's per a very important conversation. the conversation that needed to happen that should have happened a long time ago. the merrill so said the media conferences are dominated by white reporters, suggesting it's time outlets better if like the makeup of american society. she's being here over herself by a reporter from the daily caller. who argues this like foot is violating basic principles of freedom of the press, particularly given medical, commented, or christopher horace. believe the race card was being played by the democratic party to deflect from policy writing around mortgage. and there is nothing more than smoke and mirrors is a smoke screen just to distract people from all the other things that are taking place. it's apostrophe. we can just run on down the line, all the people out there, whether it's the elected officials like laurie lightfoot, or other people in the media who are out there trying to gin up race wars and all
6:24 am
that is a slight of hand to try to, to just to distract you from the things that are not working with their public policies and look at the results. the black community or some might say, the african american community is one of the ones that suffer the more by continuing to vote for people like laurie. like foot in for the party that she represents because it just leads to more swirling around the toilet. that's essentially what ends up happening in the black community. can another story. we're keeping a very close eye on watch. her scarcity, it's fast becoming a life on death mater, in the middle east, in north africa, in lebanon. they situation so dire, the children's charity unicef calling for immediate action as millions in the country, which indeed is a huge percentage of the population risk losing access to clean water. in a matter of weeks. well, utility companies in lebanon,
6:25 am
approximately would have between 4 to 6 weeks before they actually shut down altogether. we're extremely concerned that due to the economic crisis, which is spiraling out of control, that this is not going to affect the very essential water supplies for 4000000 people in the country. and the deterioration of the crisis has really accelerated in the past 12 months to a point where now even basic, essential, experimental, fair, part, consumable, even floor units actually make sure that the water is safe to drink, even that is often no longer available for the wolf utility companies. unicef estimate shortage is could see water fi search by 200 percent a month, meaning the most vulnerable will be unable to meet the most basic of needs. local reporter linda to me file this report of the unfolding crisis from one of lebanon's main cities. i'm standing inside 11 on 2nd largest city and according to what i was
6:26 am
water outage and here are even worse than they are. and i'm just about to meet with a resident here all about facing with these families when it comes to water out. most of her and his family have been suffering from severe outages throughout the summer. sometimes they go for days without a single drop of water. we have several water bills to pay what we get, so we need to get extra supplies if there's no electricity or fuel for generator to pump water. we can have a week long outages. it's very difficult, especially in the summer. we already have so much to deal with. we are very tired. most extra tanks often filled up by private water companies have been springing up on roofs. all oversight and water has become so precious. in fact, that people have started locking their tanks out of fear that neighbors might steal from them. close families here inside and used to require just one water tank like
6:27 am
those that you can see right behind me. but now they're not enough. so at least 4 tanks are required for household. and it's important to note that each of those tanks needs at least 6 hours of electricity or generator in order to pump the water all the way up and fill up those tanks. but now with a few crisis and the power outages that lebanon is constantly facing, most of these tracks do not fill up. the un is already raising the alarm, seeing that the countries water system is on the brink of collapse. and that's the, made the ongoing political and financial crisis. the one that the world bank has already described as likely to be among the top 3 most severe financial crises in the world. since $1850.00 basic necessities such as medicine, fuel and electricity have been scarce in recent weeks and with water prices increasing at an alarming rate. families have been rushing to secure alternative supplies with no real solution in sight. many may soon be forced to compromise on
6:28 am
their personal hygiene to save water, which begs the question of whether lebanon can avoid the potential public health catastrophe looming on the horizon. the situation in the eye opening story next of children with either childhood. it is a tough watch, but it is an important one. the 2nd i use the the algorithms and neural networks have been following us everywhere. we look on line because our relationships are what matters most of us and that's how we find meaning and how we make sense in our place in silicon valley see,
6:29 am
don't mention in the slick presentations. however, i think ghost workers who train the software human they're involved in every step of the process. when you're using anything online. we're sold as this miracle of automation behind your screen. it's a rubber workforce that sees algorithm that's for next to nothing. on a very good day, i could do $5.00. now. a really bad day. i could do $0.10 worth isn't movable by design. it's about labor costs, but it's also about creating layers of lessening responsibility between those who solicit the kind of work and need if and those who do it ah,
6:30 am
jaffar and up dollar format isis fighters. and they're now boarding a philippine naval ship. me a mom. i read the whole my phone or 60 and that'll lie month and i salute you know like i me, me.
