10:03 am
dangerous that a place is so scary. i spoke to a lawyer the other week that told me that it's the worst president in the united states. and the shield is different than even the shit and they use for the rest of the facility. it's. it's really scary to say that martin's been stripped of his phone and i was shortly after your last conversation. why was that? it's just a temporary punishment where you warned that communicating with us here with our t could violate prison rules. we believe that it's retaliatory and for speaking out against the prison, rape elimination act violations, friend the unit manager, there's not an iota evidence that he's done anything wrong, nor can they provide me. it doesn't seem to matter though, because they've already thrown him in the shoe. i don't know the extent as a punishment whether that includes more or how much time this is going to take. as we heard old, but apparently happened after she gave a recording of a conversation with the husband to us in it. he talks about alleged corruption in
10:04 am
the courts, but says he still got no regrets. quite a lot of the traffic. well we are supposed to comment about that so far. no reply guts field was jailed in 2018 over his fight for what he believed. he said was right. mm. i think oh right now i need you all my family. ah, she has been totally medically, abuse

10:06 am
him further allegations. he says he was sexually abused by a prison official and that is complaints were ignored. again, the facility hasn't commented on those claims, but this is what his wife told us. the man in question is the unit manager for the ceo as well as for gas ral, she has sexually abused and numbered inmates. in marty's case i, he looked again while he was in the nude indicating as he's done with other people, he stuck his hand to her occupied showers. he's gone to cells and escorted and off camera. in it display i guess of dominance and sexual intimidation. kind of rules on the books about korea and that's the prison, rape elimination act. and how the people that accused others are supposed to be protected and have investigations. and none of that is happens. mm. will keep you
10:07 am
posted, not this new in with wind to just around the corner. reco gas prices continue to sweet europe. yet germany is still to grub certification to north stream too. while the gas pipeline is technically completed. now it has been for few weeks. it still has to be given permission to operate by the german energy regulates a process which started september 8th and could take up to 4 months. let's go across this villafranca correspondent, really a high order, the surgeon gas prices. what subs, frankly, with winter coming up like a pretty terrible situation. main for a you citizens, that worst case kevin, hello there. well, here's a bold comparison for you. just remembered the situation when, for example, bitcoin prices were setting one record after another. what's been happening with nat out somehow one record after another and currently for 1000 cubic meters of natural gas, the price is higher than $1000.00. but of course,
10:08 am
bitcoin is still something that for the most part crypto enthusiasts care about. but when it comes to natural gas, that is something vital for the heat, for the european homes, to be heated and perhaps the best reflection of what that means for europeans. is this ad that's current the out in germany have a look. i while european gas and power supply and demand hangs in the balance, the major market players are looking to russia's nord stream to pipeline,
10:09 am
as hope. in fact, the new russian gas pipeline that like you said, kevin, is a technically complete. that is something that could double the flow of russian gas to europe. however, it's still yet to be certified in that process has begun at the beginning of september, but 1st it's up to the german energy regulator to give the green light to it, then they're supposed to pass on a draft to the european commission. and this is a process that could take up months and with the, the many enemies that nord stream to has had both in europe and across the atlantic that their i q 's ations that this is bureaucracy. some want that to happen on purpose. and we've already heard from one of the major players on the market that nord streamed to with all this bureaucracy may not be able to help what the situation this winter season the certification of the pipeline as far as i know
10:10 am
will be so light, it will probably not be able to help us out this winter now or what it comes to gas from the russian energy giant has been increasing exports. and we can name loads of the european countries from romania to greece, finland, italy at the exports are growing even though previously it was gas from that was being accused of this surgeon gas prices, but the, the russian companies saying, just give us the certification, give us the infrastructure and we are ready to send extra deliveries of natural gas to europe. so it could be up to the bureaucracy and it looks like the ball is a now the european bureaucrats court. so to say gas from is waiting for the certification of nord stream to yes, now bite and stuff for the years now or i'll keep us posted phenomena patrol can
10:11 am
thanks for that. now the news face folks had a safety come on to fire and congress over the effect the company's services have on young people's mental health that comes off to leaked internal research, suggesting his photo sharing platform. instagram harms, children's well being. lawmakers blasted the tech jive for exploiting kids for profit. it has weapon, eyes, childhood vulnerabilities against children themselves. it's chosen growth over children's mental health and well being greed over preventing the suffering of children. this seems to be a recurring theme with this company. do everything and anything to mould the world into your, on an edge, for your own profit without any regard for any harm, it is going to be done because your focus is on your pocket. but facebook is just like big tobacco pushing, a product that they know is harmful to the health of young people,
10:12 am
pushing it to them early. also facebook to make money. i g stands for instagram, but it also stands for insta greed. the accusations against facebook include failure to police extremism and hate speech, as well as poor handling of uses personal data. but despite that, there is still no significant measures in place when it comes to regulating the platforms content. kellum opens, got morning facebook had to postpone the rolling out of their new app directed at children under the age of 1313 and younger. ah, because of wide spread outrage and the barrage of criticism that facebook was facing after the wall street journal revealed that facebook was well aware of the harmful effects caused by instagram. we make body image issues worse for one in 3
10:13 am
teen girls, teens blame instagram for increases in rate of anxiety and depression. according to what is being reported among teenagers who are suicidal, 13 percent in britain and 6 percent in the united states actually listed instagram as having a been a factor in their desire to commit suicide. the tech giant a has, you know, basically accused of these reports of, quote, cherry picking fats on the eve of today's hearing. they did release 2 of their own internal reports, but many are looking on with disappointment because this is certainly not the 1st time that facebook has been caught suppressing data and channeling information in their own way. the research that we've seen is that using social apps to connect with other people can have positive mental health benefits. many people across the political spectrum in the united states, democrats, republicans, it seems like a consensus in the united states that there should be some better regulation of big
10:14 am
tack and social media on that. the harmful effects of social media should be controlled. but despite there being such widespread feeling and they're being ongoing hearings on capitol hill are, there doesn't seem to be a real legislative agenda being rolled out there don't seem to be a real legislation being put into the works to limit the power of big tack and the social media monopolies, despite of some colorful hearings like we just heard. the answer over here is for free voluntary action to shut down facebook and whether that's something like a small business, refusing to advertise on facebook or over a government agency refusing to share information through facebook. the key here isn't to regulate it, because that's gonna end up only favoring facebook, but rather to leave facebook and especially for the government to show an example and to set to remove all government agencies from facebook. so if the government simply steps away from it, and that includes also as well, i think repre electra represent representatives have
10:15 am
a moral responsibility to leave facebook. that decreases its values, utility and lee. that is what it should be, is basically sort of a small shy. it's a small site to share some basic information. a series of anti lockdown rallies in australia seen tampa's fray with allegations of police brutality against protested the frustrations being filled by some of the toughest and longest coven restrictions in the will. at least 2 claims of police violence been made in the last 6 days alone, the video circulating online. oh wow. what's i guess what i did is footed ship from melbourne shows the swift to detention of one demonstrator apparently after he entered a restricted area. and in a separate incident is sydney, a mother was allegedly arrested in front of a children for not wearing a mask full as a wave of violent anti cove rallies across the country. ah
10:16 am
ah, with defending with tactics authorities early a stretch said some protest as a quote there for a fight and not to protest for freedom's column. bray discussed it with our guests, whether the police and restrictions had simply gone too far. peter, i'd imagine the police are trying to anticipate when things like lockdown fatigue, overwhelmed people, and they start to get out to take it towards office of a system, the force of the background or individual offices, and on to encounter a situation. where does this steady development pressure on the public about a particular angle? very often. and so it's not maybe is forms of mind as a country,
10:17 am
regardless of that aspect. offices should be acting proportionately. curse. it's a pressure job where own grateful. but look what is happening now, and you can use brutality. i'm in what i saw in the food charge it was quite disturbing. and that the woman wasn't even i, you know, doing anything and fred is my age to expect the police to be as a result of things without any use of force or so. and a use of force isn't necessarily groups. obviously, it becomes brutality when is necessary and or accessing a lot of police. time has taken up dealing with anti faxes and their protests and people who are fed up with locked down just wanting to say enough is enough. can any of these unable rallies ever be justified? personally, i think the boxes are precious leisha to reduce to the harm of this horrible virus . but i also understand the to many people there are really fed up for that. we need to have some, you know, some want joe to help us not spread the virus but, and the reason now the way to do that and it's not the way that i so there was
10:18 am
training police mountain to, you know, was doing with that for mother and i agree that so you know, different scenarios need different tact is if you're going to say the pollution start doing things to why they do them after years and decades. the organs than afraid we want me to be able to come up with a realistic goal tendencies, asked for having difference training to different tom says, processed posts, i think what would lead to more confusion. we sold them must be. it's something else that we can do and, and i sure that people might eventually listen more if you treat them in a different way. this is alex international. my name's kevin owen. thank you for watching this friday. let me tell you what. so headboard declassified 2018 this interesting report. exposing insects is most likely behind those. so widely reported mysterious attacks on the u. s. embassy stuff in cuba then, you know, didn't start washington from launching instant accusations against russia about it
10:19 am
. we got the low done after the break. ah ah, with
10:20 am
frances macro recently said quote, the europeans must stop being naive when we are under pressure from powers, which at times harden their spans. we need to react and show. we have the power and capacity to defend ourselves, vold words, but does europe have the political will to actually defend itself? ah, again, insects that a not sophisticated weaponry may be the cause of those of reported a lot on neurological attacks, suffered legibly by american spies and diplomats posted overseas. you know, the story. the analysis comes from a recent, the declassified report from an elite team of american scientists who advised the u . s. i'm so called havana syndrome, constant heroes coast, close this one. so maybe the mystery solved all not what we got here,
10:21 am
and so much speculation for so long. and it seems it may have been a problem with bugs, but not bugs of the listening kind. sure. hello, kevin. so the u. s. have been claiming for years that there are us diplomats are being targeted or harassed by some mom, secret microwave weapon and that china, russia, or cuba. my me behind these a sophisticated attacks while according to recently emerged a document. this whole story might be just a big conspiracy theory, and it wouldn't even more interesting as that simple a cricket chirping. you heard it right in creek crypt cricket chirping. i might have been falsely taken of for the sound of this i of science fiction super weapon created by the russians and that this mishap actually triggered the whole thing. well, this is one of the, of bizarre takeaways from the was department's own report conducted by, ah, jason advisory group that has made recommendations for the was government us and to
10:22 am
hey, dave, the cold war. so let's have a listen. we believe the recorded sounds are mechanical or biological in origin rather than electronic. the most likely source is the end is short tailed cricket. the recorded audio signal is with high confidence not produced by the nonlinear detection of high power radio frequency or ultrasound pulses. well, it all started in 2016 when 21 members of the u. s. embassy in cuba, ah, reported or felt serious sob symptoms so strange rather medical symptoms, including headaches, sa dizziness, fatigue, nausea, anxiety, awe, cognitive difficulties and of, and memory loss. and then similar cases were aborted, later on in china in 2018. and then in some other countries, there have been speculations in the american media often backed by their cia sources stat. the russians or the chinese have come up with some cut net. i never seen before, weapon that is a targeting who i service members abroad with microwave or ultrasound and that this
10:23 am
is causing these a serious injuries. now, one of the things that spark, the suspicion was the strange no noise heard and then recorded by some u as diplomats and cuba before they felt ill. now it turns out this could have been just rowdy insects and not so my super weapons. and you know, what's interesting, kevin, i here as well as that. it's not even the 1st time this has been noticed in 2019 to american odd researchers conducted their own research, ah, looking into the same recording. and they also said that this was not caused by some weapon. this were a crickets instead, but for some reason their findings a were a brushed ah, away, and ah, well, for some reason this conspiracy theory took on a life of its own. russia is behind sonic attacks that led to brain. injuries of
10:24 am
u. s embassy personnel communications intercepts that suggests that the russian intelligence agency was involved. now russia is the leading suspect nbc news has learned according to 3 u. s. officials, the main suspect of the intelligence agencies. russia did it well, even though there's a lot of the, a no one in the story, what has become known as havana syndrome. actually, a has affected us policy making rather seriously. and we know that the trump administration used it as a pretext of scale ah, back are the recently re established diplomatic presence in cuba back in 2016. yeah . so no denial that the people that said they were suffering these headaches. he's cognitive disorders. and this sabrina is, et cetera, they say was very debilitating, no denial of that happened, but still is a bit of a mystery. what was causing it and that no scientific cause behind that the not sure. so this was for real but say the same report that shoots down they saw a microwave weapon with a theory confirms that he was diplomats,
10:25 am
may have suffered from some mass mental disorder. now they say that they're not 100 percent sure about that, but this is one of the possibilities. so let's have a listen. a possible explanation for the reports of symptoms is psychogenic illness . jason, believe such psychogenic effects may serve to explain important components of their port at symptoms. while in mid september, a team of cuban scientist also announced at the claims of secret sonic weapons were not scientifically acceptable. and they, they attributed the symptoms to some kind of mass psychosis on the part of usaa service members. now, whatever are the causes of this mysterious illness are eat, apparently has become a serious issue for usaa and embassy staff around the globe. ah, we have some numbers important to us officials. there have been around 200 incidents of havana syndrome to date. and a just last week us lawmakers passed in the helping american victims afflicted by
10:26 am
neurological attacks or havana act, which actually gave the c. i a millions of dollars to compensate of personnel affected. wow. okay. so still a bit of a mystery, but to interesting. that's been a theft of these years now, isn't it? thanks to bring this up to speed. now was we go nights we're going to carry islands . we're tracking that big volcano, so kicking off a dramatic to see if you see those live feed smith will a new fisher is the latest news there as opened up in the major volcanic eruption that says, raising further fears for residence pictures. i think we got the media or i will love of flows reversing towards la palmer's biggest city having force the evacuation of villages in that path for 2 weeks now. what it was be like to live near there, not knowing quite what is going to do. there are also warnings at the toxic gas cray to when lava had seawater could spread to continental europe. so far it's already hit the water. it's not been too bad. science is sir worried though, that if a lot so that lava hits the water,
10:27 am
it could be problematic. a 1000 buildings already being damaged on the spanish territory. more than 6000 people fly in their homes. we'll keep an eye on it. it's exactly 27 minutes past the hour from me, kevin owen and the rest of the team. thanks for watching our t international. ah . look forward to talking to you all. that technology should work for people. a robot must obey the orders given by human beings, except where such order that conflict with the 1st law show your identification. we should be very careful about artificial intelligence at the point, obviously is to great trust rather than fear a very job with artificial intelligence. real summoning with
