the who's the just studying revelations, bible areas, health ministers, he admits cobra vaccination failures. of course the country much $10000.00 lives as russian athletes that the total lympics keep not sure. girl, that left was the media. what athletes increasingly seeing read and they question the team writing to be the un comes under attack and the latest brown of on it. and i've got to start this headquarters taxed by what have been called government, that only one security guard from ah, law firm wants to go, thanks for joining us on,
8:01 pm
on teams. and i show that your hawkins will util. sunrise. welcome to the program. and will get his health minister admitted the multiple failures in tackling cobit in the country has had disastrous consequences in a startling revelation. he said, nearly 10000 lives could have been saved if the condition campaign had been organized properly. bulgaria is sacrificing the older generation. we immunized mainly young and active people for 5 months, and the most vulnerable groups were abandoned. 4 out of 5 covered deaths in bulgaria have been among the elderly. the government claims 10000 lives could have been saved, had the previous administration acted a bit differently. but how exactly? well, 1st off by not prioritizing the cheaper astrazeneca vaccine, the last government decided not to order any of the other 3 jobs approved by the you. and as a result,
8:02 pm
when oxford astrazeneca experienced serious delays and shipments bulgaria became one of the least vaccinated in countries at the time even lagging behind other stragglers like romania and lafayette all the while continuing to experience a surge in cases. and that's, but the other issue that caused unnecessary death was that the vaccines that the country did get for some reason didn't 1st go to the people who actually needed them the most. we did not give parity to people every 60 and people with serious illnesses that were placed in the false category after social workers, employees in many farms and others at this point. but gary remains one of the least vaccinated countries in europe with less than 20 percent of the population having received at least one dose. the new government is desperately trying to remedy the situation. but it seems, there are still a lot of hurdles for them to overcome. vaccine skepticism is still high among
8:03 pm
bulgarians, especially after reports of astrazeneca being linked to rare health complications. the country's poor health infrastructure is also hampering efforts to get vaccines to the population effectively. and the threat of a new wave of infections, courtesy of the delta variance of the corona virus, now looms very large over the country, which in response has extended its coven emergency status until the end of august. we spoke earlier with senior clinical lecturer, the case university of exeter. he says more could have been done by the previous ball game when the government that's a big mistake. we all know with infectious disease control and management that we've got to protect the people who are most vulnerable from getting infected. and these are the wonderful people that the elderly, which are much, much higher risk of having a severe illness and dying if they are not fully protected. we are the immunizations. the government itself has been reluctant to immunize and protect its
8:04 pm
own population. therefore, i feel very skeptical about the government being keen to protect its own people by giving vaccines. it is important for the politicians to be led by the scientists, their own scientists and the world. scientists rather than be led by finances and politics with regard to the best thing they can do for their population. in one in germany where they have been more successful vaccine ra out. the question now is whether that should mean more freedoms. for those immuno limitations are deeply divided on the matter. your correspondence has been looking at how the issue is splitting society. now that more than half of the german population have been fully vaccinated against coven? 19 the debate amongst politicians has moved on to whether that vaccination should entitle people to more freedoms. the presidents of the bond, the stag, things that should, i do not see any constitutional issues for differentiating between those who have
8:05 pm
been tested on the one hand. and those who have recovered or been vaccinated on the other, since the risk of vaccination is extremely low according to current data. not everyone is convinced of the constitutional fairness of such a device of move. so the german justice minister doesn't think it's right to split society down the lines of the vaccine, and the wax cannot, should stick to the principle that those who have been vaccinated recovered have a negative covered test should retain all their freedoms. the justice minister is against mandatory vaccination, but those believe that everybody who can get a job should get one the result using german politic slow who think that the government and politicians should have no sake and who gets the vaccination at all . it's not the role of the state to eliminate all risks to live. this encroachment would be unconstitutional and would clearly contradict the fund a mental idea of freedom and our basic law. those who support freedom passes. say
8:06 pm
people that have had the job shouldn't be held back by those that haven't, but they still a healthy sized opposition against forcing anyone to take the nation. what can the state impose on the individual? my red line is my body by decided on that last that the last word is up to me. the state must not exceed that with an election just 8 weeks away. and some potentially very tricky coalition talks on the horizon, right, so the vaccinated could well end up being a stumbling block to the formation of the next government. peter overall t in cologne, germany, russian athletes a continuing their impressive metal hall at the tokyo games, reaching double figures in gold medals this friday means the russia and if the committee team now so forth and the table however, you'd be hard pressed to find the money saluting their success early my call to you know, neil discuss the story with ortiz saskia taylor. well the olympics should be a huge celebration and need against all discipline from all over the world coming
8:07 pm
together at one event showcasing the skills. unfortunately, for russian athletes competing out this year's turkey games, that just hasn't been the case. they might be scooping up towards the russian then the committee will already see. does carney rank thought in total metal, but the atmosphere has been so hostile? it's been filled with suspicion, criticism, very little good sportsmanship, both from the global media and of course from photo competitors. for example, us women, ryan murphy, who lost to a russian, took a veil flight by saying that he, that it probably wasn't a teen race. a comment that he later back tracked on. but by that a british swim, i had also come out and couldn't help me, could dig about state sponsored doping out for the russian who beat them. he said that my bold metal is the combination of nothing but life from dedication yesterday doubles the sport. i have always stood for nothing but clean competition. i have always been tested and i always go out to my documents. i've devoted my entire life
8:08 pm
to this sport. and i would never be able to forgive myself if i use some doping, so i don't even know how to react to this model. now, while those comments might not seem directed to any one particular asking or country, others very openly was quite frankly, the epitome of a sole lose one us row. for example, said that russians shouldn't even be the seen, the crew who shouldn't even be here. walk away with the silver is a nasty feeling really disappointing overall, and i feel for the other f as in the, a final. now come, i might be furious that she's not taking her, not when that she was banking on her belief that russians don't have a right to be there. of course just doesn't reflect reality how much she wants it to. the truth is that russian athletes are allowed to compete, but on such strict conditions as a result of an ongoing reduced number of historically clean russian athletes are allowed to compete as mutual meaning that they've been stripped of them the flag. and of course, the country's name hadn't receive and not russia. but despite this,
8:09 pm
despite that commitment to the very rules that the international impact committee has set up. and despite the fact that there will be most tested, one of the most tested delegations that they are still daily faced with this wave of bitterness and malice. yeah, new end of comments direct or otherwise. as you're saying indirectly the last number of there, including the swimmers, what's the media? how to say? well, unfortunately, the hostility towards the r a c team is really tenfold in western media. some of the headlines are actually pretty shocking. many of them fairly can disguise that discuss the russians, have been allowed to learn that the actually winning metals, beautiful music. and although window dressing, such as calling itself the russian olympic committee to suggest an appearance of neutrality cannot mask the stench of corruption and appeasement. the i received entire plan completely backfired. it certainly didn't keep the russians out. and it
8:10 pm
certainly didn't shame russia were putting, has used the band to pump up nationalistic pride. and that was us, gymnast simone biles had to pull out the media with disappointment, right? about, well, that's paid the way for the russians, which is exactly of course what happened as they deserved. so if one were hoping that the media will kind of take a step back and just objectively report on the ongoing events on the trial on the losses of those limp can. well, unfortunately we've been disappointed. i suggest there's a little bit of back story to this as well, right. what, of course, i think most people are why, but this is all the fall out from the uncovering of thought and that you don't pick scheme amongst russian athletes. back in 2014 was, was found for 4 years from any major international sporting events about, well today to reduce to 2 years now, russian officials did come out, they admitted mistake had been made in the 2 doping program. but they also did claim that the band was politically motivated, but the truth is, is that is the past that have been repercussions for that. what's happening now in
8:11 pm
tokyo was essentially the demonize ation of hundreds of proven clean athletes who are playing by the rules down to a team who are also getting tested repeatedly in the last number of winter and summer. exactly. they are, they are the 3rd, have to team off on us and china. so it's really good if the cation by those, by the media not have to say really as a credit to those are the athletes that despite all of this, that they've managed to block out all that noise and still keep mounting when a podium andry walker journalist and commentators says, russian athletes deserve a break. individual athletes got nothing to do with it. nobody's ever suggested that these athletes have, don't, ever been trying to represent that contract. lucia is not the most, a butcher is not the enemy. and certainly, even if we're supposed to get to me, the idea that we would publish individual athletes is absolutely wrong. these athletes remember, have done what you've asked them today. they were taught all of their lives and
8:12 pm
they walked into that stadium as o. c, which is brochure olympic committee rather than representing their own country that was embarrassing and humiliating to them. well, they did it on the last, gave them a bright the curtain. lenny just fallen on toto game to around 2 weeks time before opens up again on the parent index and team. rosie's final preparations are well on the way journalists parenting tend to meet 3. it cannot off when you get a taste of one of the toughest disciples disciplines. pirates like one that hi everyone. me watching a diary about the preparations for the upcoming paralympics in tokyo, which will kick off soon. and today we're at the para minova support center. he used to train people without any disability, but now you have a whole army of power athletes that like that very cool. ah

8:14 pm
pinta disabled because they could easily take on any one. the have a mouth guard and helmet with a face show. we also have handed, growing protection, as well as an electronic chest protector. lex pads, an electronic footwear. for the tell us more about the electronics, what do they do? is it like in fencing where it lights up when someone hits you? yes, we have an electronic chest protector with sensors on it. as well as any tonic socks with 12 senses. you get points if you hit the sensor, so you can receive even more points. if yolanda spinning kick, i was the when a determined by the number of points. so the number of points is equal to the number of blows, the more points you get, the higher your place. yes, each tried last 2 minutes. now 3 rounds with one minute break. taekwondo is rapid
8:15 pm
support. it's not only about fighting, it's about. thank you. everyone has reached such a high level to get to the lympics that you can just fight. you have to think about what your opponent is doing. so it's a bit like playing chess. yes, you should be quicker than your opponent. don't. she's blows. still to come on you studies, found american universities appear to be more interested in ensuring diversity and inclusion in teaching history. more off the break i use ah ah
8:16 pm
ah, i will. i will join me every thursday on the alex salmon show and i'll be speaking to guess in the world, the politics, sport, business and show business. i'll see you then in the news ah,
8:17 pm
over him back united nations headquarters in western i've got to start. i've been attacks with rocket propelled grenades on gunfire. one, god is confirmed, killed with several others injured. no, un personnel, happy in the area near the compound, seen fighting between government forces and a ton of an h q attack, as though so far only being described as anti government elements. you've already said it will hold those responsible to account this attack against the united nations is deplorable, and we condemn it in the strongest terms our 1st towards her with the family of the officer slain. and we wish a speedy recovery to those injured. this comes as i can force is minus the rest that control of a key northern districts from the taliban and retreating militants left behind a trail of deliberate destruction. the spot these can force is victory. the taliban has been largely ascended a terrorist groups taken more territory in the last 2 months. then in the last 2 decades. it now as a donor presence in the north,
8:18 pm
northeast and central provinces is also closing on the key cities, including condos and candle, ha, vertical i call the catalyst should be arrest ramsey told us despite the rapid gangs of taliban, there is a silver lining to the u. s. troop withdrawal. the situation is i want to sound has been really chaotic for the last 20 to the american on the pretext of trying to get rid of the government, the regime in cowboy, at that time it was dominated by the dollar bond. but what you've got to really understand is that american interference, and it's good that the americans that now leaving, i want to spend all to get that by the end of september. and really let the money besides them said, was their faith an outcome should be. but so long as the americans are there and
8:19 pm
also my own government, the british have continuously supported at the us. they should leave. and that's what the taliban have been demanding for the last 20 years. and i hope that really come to an end. as i said, as mr biden, this problem is that all true when lead one is done by the end of september relation and likings, these are at the center was flu of new lawsuit from the us taking a so called critical race. there they are. the subject looks aside from the respect of a systemic racism. teaching schools has been a matter of heated debate. the head of the legal firm representing a plaintiff's praise what he calls that bravery. our clients are bravely confronting critical race theory, inspired bullying, indoctrination and retaliation which is not training or persuasion. in 2 of the cases, the complainants say they lost their job for opposing critical rights theory. in
8:20 pm
a 3rd wrote my parents, it's argued that it'll turn into viewpoints, so being excluded from schools, while racial studies in schools have reading divisive in higher education, inclusivity seem to be winning the day. a new study of $65.00 universities found that on average they had more staff dedicated to ensuring equity and diversity. don history professors, art is caleb wolf and report. we have a new study conducted by the heritage foundation, a conservative think tank that talks about the prevalence of diversity, equality and inclusion staff or d, e staff on american universities and basically shows that there are more d i staff than there are history professors at this point most universities have roughly 45 d staffers. that's 4 times as many then disabilities staffers who deal. and it went to the commenting, the needs of students who might have disabilities. and that's only 2 thirds as many history professors on,
8:21 pm
on the faculty and the university of louisville. kentucky got 50 d staffers and only 17 history folks. this is what the heritage foundation said about their finding. this research suggests that large diversity, equity inclusion bureaucracies appeared to make little positive contribution to campus climate. rather than being an effective tool for welcoming students from different backgrounds. diversity equity inclusion personnel may be better understood at a signal of adherence to ideological political and activist goals. now this comes at the same time as there is a big controversy in the united states surrounding the teaching of critical race theory, which views us history through the lens of systemic racism. 8 states across the united states, a band, the teaching of critical race theory. however, a number of institutions use it not only in colleges, but also in the high schools. and it seems like liberals are more open to this kind of teaching. whereas conservatives are vehemently opposed to it. this controversy
8:22 pm
has led to a lot of viral videos from parents complaining at school board meetings. some lawsuits, some claims that were fired for opposing the teaching of critical race theory. it's a very intense controversy with conservatives on one side liberals on the other and increasing cultural and political divide in the united states. and report the ledges that a us back to collective of musicians and artists sewing sees of descent in cuba, an effort to destabilize the government. the groove in question is called assigned seat or movement. it comprises of cuban wrappers, rock musicians, all this, and journalists, the u. s has allegedly spend millions of dollars on them to gain swanky, was marginalized young. we went by mister spoken out in support of american sanctions, former us president donald trump and even military intervention in cuba. we spoke earlier to the author of the investigation editor in chief of the grocer, project, max blumenthal. what amazed me aside from the fact that the wall street journal in
8:23 pm
rolling stone have credited this group of artists and performers with providing in their words, the catalyst for the day of protests we saw in cuba. was that the national endowment for democracy in arm of the u. s. government, that bank roles regime change operations abroad actually laid out an explicit strategy in 2009 to weaponized marginalized and di, socialized youth. and that very same year, usa id, another arm of the u. s. government, which is an intelligence front in many cases began approaching anti government hip hop wrappers in cuba. promoting them and even creating social media platforms to promote their anti government lyrics. and this is a program that has continued today and culminated with the rise of the senate seizure movement and this anthem pottery evita, which has become the slogan of these anti government anti communist cuban protests
8:24 pm
. on friday, the u. s. government allegedly agency close to $1000000.00 funding program to new applicants. the goal of the project was to bring about social change in cuba and support. young people, women, l, g, b, t groups, office and individuals of afro cuban thin. while the us finance is cultural programs in cuba, the remains under severe economic sanctions. he was been under us embargo for more than half a century since $962.00. in fact, no, some estimates put cubans, he could make losses from that at around $50000000000.00. but it was also the biggest obstacle to buying medicine and equipment. during the pandemic. the sea of the un general assembly voted overwhelmingly against the embargo. st. vondik human rights on friday, the us impose additional sanctions against cuba. national police, including postal sexual targeting is chief this month to but source largest
8:25 pm
photo in decades. people with the morning more freedom on a better response. and then he was president accused washington of inciting the math demonstration. the u. s. though says it was a stable country. max rubenthal again, claims the americans meddling more than ever in cuban affairs. well, there's nothing there. there's nothing surprising about this except the, at the intense interest in the you among the u. s. intelligence fronts like usa id now run by samantha power in weaponized in a group that will soon become the demographic majority in cuba, which has suffered enormously under the blockade. and that's afro cubans. and they spell this out explicitly in their documents. and that's why hip hop is becoming a vehicle that the u. s. likes to use it budgeted $110000.00 for a hip hop, n g o in columbia to go and train hip hop artists in cuba to become quote unquote,
8:26 pm
democratic leaders. and so what we see is the u. s. actually exploiting and trying to create racial divisions in cuban society. in fact, doing what many liberals and democrats in the united states accused russia of doing with no evidence with black lives matter. that's actually the operational program in cuba right now. in order to paint this state that has been racially progressive, which is given asylum to black, american dissidence, which fought apartheid south africa to paint it as racially regressive. and even structurally racist from boss setting away in just a few moments time to you and i return in half an hour with the latest join us again that me

ah ah, excuse me. ah, will be someone like me seeking the best rights for the people for children and that should have the best education similar to invalid if the time to continue to oppose. but this will get confronted. but i want to just
8:28 pm
confront dition to be political if they don't allow that. and if they continue to, to, to seek their own domination of, of kind of the way they incorporate. that will give rise to a national uprising without a doubt. and i'll be want to use the ah, the who's in algorithms,
8:29 pm
neural networks have been following us every where we look online because our relationships are what matters most stuff. and that's how we find meaning. and how we make sense in our place in the silicon valley see, don't mention in the slick presentations. however, the ghost workers who train the software humans are involved in every step of the process when you're using anything online. we're sold, as is miracle of automation behind your screen. it's a long rouble workforce. that seems algorithm that's for next to nothing on a very good day to do $5.00 now. a really bad day. i think intensive. use workers are available 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 it. and those who do it
8:30 pm
driven by a dreamer shaped by person. those with the in me who dares thing. we dare to ask me ah, this is boom, but the one does it show you can't afford to mit branch.
