hello, expectations of life. accepted. accept the fact that i made that work. we had no fears. jell change pretty fast. 4 shots, different stories behind the bullets gas prices in europe hit a new record with the german government wanting people to prepare for close to freezing month. meanwhile, the countries energy regulators yet to ground and operating licensed to the now fully completed node stream to gas pipeline. the white house declassified to report revealing its suspected for years that the mystery sounds supposedly attacking us government stop abroad were not unknown. russian weapons, but chirping crickets and poland accuses the e. u. of blackmail for threatening to withhold cache from regents that don't recognize l g b t writes, we get some reaction from the city authorities have the right to not a everyone has despised nubian union should find another way i believe that the
3:01 pm
european union should not interfere with what's happening in colon at all ah, hello good to have you with a slide from moscow. this is art internationals, world news at 10 with me calling bright 1st. then with winter, just around the corner in europe, rec, old gas prices continue to sweep the continent. but germany is still yet to ground certification for nord stream to the gas pipelines technically completed. but it still needs permission to operate from the german energy regulator. his art is alia . patricia. remembered the situation when, for example, bitcoin prices were setting one record after another. what's been happening with natural gas futures in europe, in september is resembling that somehow one record. after another and currently for 1000 cubic meters of natural gas,
3:02 pm
the price is higher than $1000.00. but of course, 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 get, wow, european gas and power supply and demand hangs in the balance. the major market players are looking to rushes north stream to pipeline. as hope. in fact,
3:03 pm
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 accusations that, that is bureaucracy and 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 is this winter season. the certification of the pipeline, as far as i know will be so light,
3:04 pm
it will probably not be able to help was out this winter. 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 previous the, it was gas from that was being accused of this surgeon gas prices, but 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 in the european bureaucrats court. so to say gas from is waiting for the certification of nord stream to brussels accuses gas prom of manipulating supplies and prices at a time of urgent need. the russian energy firm for its part insists that it is
3:05 pm
meeting all of its contractual obligations in their entirety. earlier and i would say a former austrian foreign minister told us that e u states only have themselves to blame you customers are only comp our customers among many others. we are competing with china with india for so sometimes they pay simpler, higher prices, as lack of planning. it's mismanagement, i would say energy politics has also to do with securing supply with affordable prices with bringing energy to the customer. and here we have seen mismanagement that we have been focusing only on moving out of forsythe, not anymore allowing companies tool to invest and foster, but it's a completely whole major dilemma. it's definitely not that the russians are not delivering that to the russian energy companies, such a strong fulfilling contract. but the issue is many
3:06 pm
fault and the situation that we are in is one of our chief transition. and in an energy transition, you cannot simply move out of anything without moving into something. and this has been the case in germany. furious firefighters saw the latest sector of the french population refusing to about a new mandatory coven vaccine goals. almost 200 of them in the south of the country have been suspended without pay until they can return to work when their jobs shall ado belsky reports. now getting a sense of what the resistance is here from key work is across france to the idea of not just the obligatory vaccination, but then showing that you've been vaccinated by the use of this health past. this is a health pass which you show not only for some places of work, but also for cafes, restaurants, bars, cinemas, cultural places to show that you've either had to vaccination shots
3:07 pm
a if it's pfizer or astrazeneca, or the one if it's the johnson and johnson, all that you've had a recent test that shows that you cove it negative, but for these key workers there have to show that they are w vaccinated to be able to continue to work. however, in the southeast of france, in region, just above the city of niece, almost 200 firefighters, have since been suspended because their refusal outright to comply with this new regime. they have said, we're not showing you whether or not we've been vaccinated to. we don't know if they've even been vaccinated. this is more for them about the idea that they are refusing to give over that information to their employers. and as a result, they've been suspended, likely, according to the new regulations without pay as well. at now, just to give you a sense of how many individuals that is at this is about 13 percent of all of the firefighters in this particular region. so you can imagine that that is likely to
3:08 pm
have a pretty big impact. it's not the 1st time that firefighters have shown resistance to this idea of the health path. we know that some unions even took a case to the european court of human rights in august. they may have failed, but the union says it's going to continue to fight for the cause. the aim is not at all to increase the number of strikers or protesters, but to protect staff who do not wish to be vaccinated and who are waiting for a solution. it's not just firefighters, either. this is something that is impacting other key workers, such as health workers here wrong. we understand that there are around 20000 medical staff. this could be doctors and nurses care staff caregivers who have been suspended since this obligation to show that you vaccinated car came into force on september 15th. however, while there are 2700000 workers in the health sector here in france, and you might think, oh, well, you know,
3:09 pm
20000 isn't that many unions have told us that every member of staff that is lost, every member of staff that is not working that has a wider impact, an impact on the services that they're able to offer, as well as other staff who continue to work. and we've heard that while originally this health pastor is only supposed to be in place until about november 15th, the government is already muted. the suggestion that it could be looking at legislating to make that health pass obligatory up until the summer of 2022. she can imagine if people have been angry up until this point, this is likely to only solidify that and get even more if that goes ahead paid to the south caucasus. and another turbulent twist for the small nation of georgia is larger than life form. a president called 2nd philly's been arrested hours after returning to the country from exile. apparently, for the 1st time in 8 years, the georgia prime minister had via to arrest him if he returned ortiz donald
3:10 pm
quarter, explains why savage release, back and why the authorities want him while he is facing some hefty prison time. that's for sure. and now the prosecutor's office is saying that they're investigating him for the additional offense of illegally crossing the border in the country. now we have to remember that the former george and president has been living in ukraine since 2013. that was after his 9 years of power back in georgia, a kia gave him citizenship. he was even the governor of odessa for a quite a while there. but during his time in ukraine, he was actually accused of several and crimes back in georgia, 2 of which he was a convicted of in absentia. now those crimes are the killing of the head of the united georgian banks, foreign department, and the killing of a government deputy, which together have earned him 9 years in prison. and we also heard from the prosecutor's office that this sentence is not up for appeal. now the controversy surrounding suckers really actually doesn't and there it was his administration
3:11 pm
that was power in power when war broke out in the region back in 2008 soccer really tried to accuse russia of instigating this war. but actually, the international community has really has recognized that the responsibility actually lies with him. in the missions view, it was julia which triggered off the wall when it's attacked. syn valley in south city with heavy artillery on the nights of the 7th to the 8th of august, 2008. now why would suck us really returned to a country in which she's a wanted man? well, he actually announced his plans earlier in the week on facebook, claiming he was, he would return and quote, so take part in saving georgia. now interestingly enough, this coincides with local elections that are going on there in which his former party is challenging. the current ruling administration, but as of now we've heard from his lawyer, he says that he cannot get in touch with suckers. really. the georgian ambassador to ukraine has been summoned for more information on to what's going on. so the
3:12 pm
events surrounding the store are really developing quickly and will be on top of it as they develop we sure will 1st hear a heads at this hour, the mysterious buzzing syndrome, which left american diplomats and empathy stuff sick co, but russian weapons were blamed, but a d classified us for pull to jessica, much more natural explanation is all t reports off of the break with join me every thursday on the alex salmon. sure. but i'll be speaking to guess of the world politics sport business. i'm sure business. i'll see you then frances mc, chrome recently said quote, the europeans must stop being naive when we are under pressure from powers,
3:13 pm
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 to live in a time now where we receive so many inputs on a daily basis that are completely i'm will need to reality. so think about how and social media filters, and they basically present themselves in a very unrealistic way. and so we come down to fomo. there is any, involve more than that. it's about being sort of envious of something that may not exist is also really tied to the fact that as humans, we want to be part of the crowd ah, hook by the usa department, declassified a 2018 document advising that enigmatic noise is supposedly plaguing us spies and
3:14 pm
diplomats abroad were actually just local insects. but that admission hasn't stopped the u. s. establishment of the media spitting into a frenzy that the sounds actually came from mystical russian weaponry, cabot. i've got more details earlier from correspondent constantine raj cove. while according to recently emerged, a documentary, this whole story might be just a big conspiracy theory and it, what's really interesting here is that a caricature chirping might have been falsely taken up for the sound of this science fiction weapon on this whole mishap actually triggered the whole thing, 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 odo signal is with high confidence, not produced by the nonlinear detection of high pow radio frequency or ultrasound pulses. while it all started back in 2016, a with 21 usaa service members in cuba. when they experienced this medical symptoms
3:15 pm
including ah, had ache, dizziness of fatigue on nausea, anxiety, cognitive difficulties in memory laws and then similar cases were reported in china in 2018 and then in some other countries. while there have been speculations in the american media, and they often were backed by their cia sources, dads out of the russians, or the chinese have come up with this cotton edge. never seen before. weapon that targets us service members around the globe, causing this, ah, vicious injuries rushes behind sonic attacks that lead to brain injuries of 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, one of the things that sparked this exact suspicion was this in a weird noise, heard and a recorded by you as diplomats in cuba before they felt ill. while now it turns out
3:16 pm
that this could have been just rowdy insects and not necessarily the super weapons . ah, what's also interesting is that it's not actually the 1st time this has been noticed in 2019 to american re surgeries, herani similar analysis. and they looked into the same recording, concluded that this were crickets, not something else. and some reason their findings were brushed aside in this conspiracy theory. to con a life of it's own, some of the mystery solved the think it's crickets, whether drove the people crackers at the end of the day. but you don't know as to speed saying that these people to say they went through some, some pretty em the heavy symptoms did have that blue still not really sure. why then? sure. so the symptoms are for real and in the same report that di shoots down this microwave weapon theory actually confirms that audio as personnel may have been suffering from some mass mental disorders. a possible explanation for the reports
3:17 pm
of symptoms is psychogenic illness. jason, believe such psychogenic effects may serve to explain important components of their port at symptoms and mid september, the cuban, a group of cuban a researcher is also announced at the claims of secret sonic weapons were not scientifically acceptable. and they attributed this symptoms to you. ah, what they called a mass psychosis on the part of usaa service members. now, whatever caused this mysterious illness, it apparently has become a big thing, an issue for the american diplomat serving abroad because we know that there have been around 200 incidents of havana syndrome, stiff date. and just last week, us lawmakers passed the how think american victims afflicted by neurological attacks act, or havana act, which actually is given the cia millions of dollars to compensate? the personnel affected a new fisher in the major volcanic eruption and the canary islands is raising further fees for residence on la palmer lava. fletcher advancing
3:18 pm
towards the adams biggest town having already forced the evacuation of villages in their power for 2 weeks now. there also, warnings that the toxic gas created when lava had seaboard could spread to continental europe. a 1000 buildings had been damaged on the spanish territory with more than 6000 people having fled their homes. the islands been declared a disaster zone. russia 1st royal wedding and more than a century has taken place in a lavish ceremony in saint petersburg, grand duke george halifax, ramana of a descendant of the russian imperial family, tied the knot with his italian fiance. and he's the grandson of the last emperor's 1st cousin. who fled russia and declared himself ruler in exile after the 1917 revolution ended the monarchy. and with all the low down on the right, royal event is a course down of will. it is certainly a 1st for russia in many, many years in over a century. of course, that's because the groom,
3:19 pm
the jew here he is coming from the he's a descendant of the russian royal bloodline. but that's not the only thing monarchy about this wedding. it is also the number of guests hundreds of people have decided to well attend the ceremony. some figures very, very colorful, which is already quite royal in scale and lavish, but also many european aristocrats, dukes. and even the last king of bulgaria decided, well to come and wish the noon with some luck. and if i may say, so, the crowning jewel of this wedding as well is the venue, of course, it's the saint ice axe cathedral, a well as an historic church, one of the most beautiful in all of russia. and well, quite very well associated with the russian royal blood line. so yeah, it is a sight truly to behold. but well, this as all things royal against this wedding was not without its controversies, because the main question is to is as to how much claim on the throne the groom
3:20 pm
really has here because his, his relationship with saw nicholas, the 2nd russian last czar who along with all of his family, including his children, was well put to death by a firing squad on the it is of while the communist revolutionaries back all the way back in 1918. so this duke, the groom, here he is the great grandson of the cousin of nicholas, the 2nd rushes lost. zach and that cousin, well, he kind of abdicated and he even pledged allegiance to the revolutionary authorities back in 1917 only to change his mind later in exile in europe. but whatever controversies is the rest about this wedding, well they're still it will let the experts to decide as to what to do with them. and we will wish the newly weds the best of luck. of course. poland justice
3:21 pm
minister says the country's being blackmailed by the e u by threatening to withdrawal funds and regions that fail to recognize l g b t writes for districts have already back down and revoked policies that discriminate against the gay community. and last month, european commission told the regents that it would withhold over a $120000000.00 euros if the decorations remained in force. and during the summer, brussels initiated legal action against poland for alleged violations of algae bt writes. but not everyone's happy with the e u intervention. what's your personal note of us have? i believe that the european union should not interfere with what's happening in poland at all. they should not act like that, especially if the city deserves that money and should be given much carnal t's and sanctions of his type should not be imposed. horsemen gone. i think the european union is right. our government is very helpful. bakery. i agree with europe and the right to marry them only now typically, everyone has this variety, really and union should find another way. is them the price of i'm not a sign of pro l g b t zones that on the other hand everyone has it right to their own life communion
3:22 pm
and a part of the european union. it is very unfair. such things should not be combined . here is the man, here's the modeling just for their completely separate matters. i think nothing should be done by calling it there is no such need in. once you do not have to force any local governors justified, the u turns saying they're not ready to be accountable for the financial loss that one expert we heard from told us that such an approach by the you to maintain unity in the block is a path to dictatorship, every local power should act according to the wheel. and i am a lawful of a degree of paul, especially in this case, especially in this case. so i, you know, i'm not trying to him to the subject of nato not talking about, evolved lesbian gauge on gender and song. i'm talking about the general you the general principle that should be well respected by the european union.
3:23 pm
unless the union wants to become a south assault or talk, receipt or dictatorship, i think is a very democratic choice. i think that the former common discount is like polar local municipality, local province is so local powers. they have power enough, according to the constitution to act according to the will. i think it is something which is completely legitimated and should be understood and should be allowed. also the santa the reclaims, of multiple voting violations in last weekend's, german election m. one instance ballot papers were delivered to the wrong districts . and also the people were left queuing for hours at polling stations. the government since admitted that there were several incidents across the country. yeah. beautiful. yes. i mean these incidents have been discovered and they are being discussed intensively in such a major city in germany, in
3:24 pm
a city where we are. and i think that is exactly where it belongs. i with more on what exactly went wrong during the elections. he has an aster, said tomachov. ah, it all started when mock election forecasts for accidentally at 2 days ahead of the vote. the public broadcast to briefly displayed a ticker was the projected results during an evening quiz program. and today's labor only hours before falling station close to the free voters party leader. all defeated forecast results. the publication of paul's and projections on election day is strictly prohibited with fines up to $50000.00 euros. but the party had claims this was an accident yogi. and also with impunity. we will clarify this with the federal returning officer. it was just a mis apple nissan. there was no intention to break any laws to push dawson and some districts voters had to stand in line for hours. some even had to wait, well after the official closing time of 6 pm to cast
3:25 pm
a boat. the delay was caused by incorrect ballads being distributed to the wrong neighbourhood. the labels on the ballad boxes did not match the content resulting in hundreds of people voting for candidates from other areas. and due to high number of wrong tickets and therefore difficulty counting votes. one of the burning districts had to publish estimates instead of results. it also took longer to deliver to correct ballads because streets were closed due to the bell in my refund on the same day which about 25000 people attended. the marathon should not have taken place on the election day. the most important act to which citizens express political will, must not fall victim to a commercial sports event. if the entire city center has paralyzed traffic, that is an extreme obstruction. mm. balance sheet collection official even admitted that she knew about the labeling issue back in august,
3:26 pm
but ballots were shipped anyway. so following widespread criticism for a serious of organizational and blunders, the cheap election officer has an bounced her resignation. the salish good man, we will have to seriously investigate whether voters were not able to cast their vote dealer. this allegedly happened because they were not provided with a sufficient amount of ballad papers or the correct ballot papers. an election is only democratic when all voters are able to use their right to vote. finally, a full investigation and to mismanagement is still being conducted. was its conclusions expected next week. after that, experts predict legal challenges to the results that may start pouring in? okay, that's you news for now. next to me, the man who coined the term fear of missing out of the social media anxiety and it's exploitation in marketing. it's sophie and co vision race after the break. ah
3:27 pm
ah ah ah
3:28 pm
oh if you had expressing the of non government could be in the image or with a c, i'm sorry this is august nation be you will have to see if you want me to go with the entities you've got to impose the democratic system on top of the wall and the political order.
3:29 pm
welcome to so think of vision or is me sophie shepherd not to feel that others are enjoying a better life than you're missing a trick? well, we all feel this way, time to time, and it turns out science has a name for it. well, today i talk to venture capitalist and the man who actually coined the term, the fear of missing out, patrick mcginnis. patrick mcginnis, venture capitalists, and the 1st fomo sapiens known to science as he calls himself, patrick rates, have you in our show? hi. hey sophie, it's a great to be here. all right, so even though the word is catchy and quite famous by now, it would still be nice to fill our years zane. so briefly, what exactly is firma which stands for fear of missing out? is it a syndrome? is it a condition? what is it?
3:30 pm
so with an anxiety, it is caused by the fear that there is something better happening out in the world than what you're doing right now. combined with a fear of being excluded from a beneficial collective experience and sort of group thing going on that you're seeing happening and you're not a part of all right. and you are saying that you are the 1st so most app ians known to men. how come before you there were non well, the word fomo didn't exist before i came along. so i actually invented the word for mo, when i was a student, harvard business school way back in 2003, if you can believe it. of course, these feelings are part of the human experience all the way back to the earliest humans. but we didn't need the word phone until, i guess social media came along and my word was just invented and it sort of perfectly synced up with the, with the spread of the internet and social media. ok, i just said.
