love what i got. it's not fair that a good worker could have their salary withheld if they're not vaccinated. it worries me a lot because there are many people who are against it. an upgrade the modem, i suspect there is a huge deal for the sale of vaccines. there was one at 1st than another, is confusing. first you tell me to wear a mask, keep a safe distance and wash your hands. this was to protect from infection. if this is all true that there shouldn't be the need to enforce vaccinations in this way. when italy's government last month sworn that they would bring in the new green card, no pay decree. it expected the announcement to trigger an enormous acceleration of vaccinations. however, that has not materialized while job rates didn't initially increase that has since been a steep decline. and with around 2500000 workers still unvaccinated, there are concerns, more violent rallies could ensue. italians are not the only ones who have been

3:06 am
its situation remains under control. health passes could pin dumped for suna. in this scenario, the kobe passed system could be canceled between november, the 15th, and the end of the year. if there are low case levels nationally. it's a waiting phase in order to prepare to cancel the pass system, which would allow us to limit the risk and scale of a possible new wave in december, january, adding fuel to the fire form friday in france, tests to show that your covey negative will no longer be free for those who are at and vaccinated. another carrot and stick a measure perhaps. but the issue isn't specifically about the coven jab the cosy pandemic is seeing government across europe flip flopping on policy, ignoring advice, it's come from their own scientific advisors. and all of these says perhaps deepened divisions. enact many in europe, wondering if they governments are really working in their best interests. charlotte,

3:09 am
that january 6th riots. now he has a form of blood cancer and brokers, wrist while in custody. in may, a doctor prescribed surgery which was still not been provided. and after reviewing the case, the federal judge held prison officials and civil contempt and branded the delay in treatment as inexcusable. i find that the civil rights of the defendant have been abused. i don't know if it's because he's a january 6th defendant or not. but i find this matter should be referred to the attorney general of the united states for a civil rights investigation into whether the dc department of corrections is violating the civil rights of january 6, defendants in this and may be other cases we spoke with an attorney albert of watkins, who was representing several suspects in the capitol hill riots, he says the case is part of an overall disrespect shown towards the detainees. there are short incidence, which really since january say which those who are involved in january to be live relatively. we have disrespect by individuals who are working for

3:11 am
the federal ruling of the dc corrections department responded, saying it's committed to ensuring that all inmates have access to health care in a timely and efficient manner. and albert watkins again believes the problems go far beyond any lack of medical care. and so when you have individuals with no criminal history, you are being confined in dc and overcrowded show totally restrictions in place and personnel who are working in making the lives of those defendants typical where should be not taking those measures necessary to fully protect them from others. ready for i can find it, traverse is from confinement to torture, and that's the problem. and while the post election writing can land you in prison,
3:12 am
there's no such punishment for 1000000000 as you might try to swing the outcome in the new york post of accusing facebook. c o. mug of doing exactly that. by donating hundreds of millions of dollars to election n g o's in the run up to last year for last month, priscilla and i donated $300000000.00 to support election officials with the infrastructure. they need to administer the votes, including voting equipment, p, p, e, for poll workers, and hiring additional pulse staff. today were committing an additional $100000000.00 to the center for tick and civic life to make sure that every jurisdiction that needs funding to help people safely can get it voting of the foundation of democracy. it's how we express our voice and make sure a countries heading in the direction we want talk about it says he only gave to non partisan organizations. but according to analysis by the paper, the donations heavily favor democratic organizations over republican. and that was
3:13 am
especially true in the swing states where the donation is targeted, large democratic leaning cities. now one of the main beneficiaries of the facebook funding was the center for election innovation and research. and it has hit back to the new york post claims saying it was proud to assist both republicans and democrats in the election. the group says at work to ensure a quote, the most secure, transparent unverified election in american history. a journalist daniel lazar things private funding plays a pivotal role in the outcome of american elections. this is the privatization of election. and when you privatize elections, essentially, you undermine their neutrality and their objectivity. though it's very possible that this money helps your voters in a certain direction and help determine the outcome of the election. the electoral process from us is a mess. this is the only country where this takes place. election should be
3:14 am
entirely government funded. they should be entirely neutral and objective. they should not favor any party whatsoever. and there's no reason to have an injection of private money of this magnitude. that should be reform process. but it's just not going to happen because the system is completely broken and it's totally out of control. democrats have freed more or less silent over the latest allegations against facebook, of political bias. but they were more than willing to stand out for one was a blow who testified against her former employer just a couple of weeks ago. mm. mm mm. mm. mm. mm. mm. mm. mm. mm. mm. mm. facebook choosing to grow at all costs. becoming an almost trillion dollar company by buying its profits with our safety. francis, how good former facebook employees you reach thousands of documents to journalists

and a surgeon's tactile perception as well as his or her eyesight helps a lot because you need to make sure you don't break the thread well, placing the searches and robotic hands can't do that. not now. and i believe not ever. you can write software for the machine, but you cannot give it a human tactile perception with y'all now, good of you to join us here for this friday program live from moscow. now about 10, 17 in the morning. so this is big news for those of her us here in the russian
3:18 am
capital, because now commuters here and moscow can travel on the underground just by showing their faces. the russian capital is on rolling a new facial recognition payment system. the 1st time has been done on such a scale are corresponding to meet you power takes a closer look. ah sco specialist. this is one of the all the subway system in the world. the days all the way back to the 1930. however, ever since then, it's never stopped growing, evolving and modernizing and today is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful and technologically advanced subway systems on the planet with millions of passengers every day. one of the key features of the moscow metro system has become the numerous ways people can pay for their right. they can use our universal transit card like this, their regular bankcard, a smartphone smart watch. and now even just their face to pay for a ride called face pay, the system uses the latest biometrics technology to make. getting into the metro is
3:19 am
hassle free as possible. a camera scans the passengers faces at the turnstile, matches the biometric data to its database, binds each person's account, an associated bankcard to charge the fair and the gates open. all that takes about as long as a regular car transaction at the gate. just a 2nd or 2. the face space system has been test small since december 2020 with over 15000 people taking part in the test. however, as of october 15th, the system will become available to all passengers and work on all $241.00 stations of the moscow metro transit authorities are already hailing this as the largest scale application of such technology in the world. but is everyone ready to switch to the new method? let's ask some passengers. universe, why not? it's step into the future. it's practical and convenient. you don't have to carry a conte around with you. that's why i use it, which there super pull. so miles it goes right negative things about face pe,
3:20 am
technology for example, they suggest someone can use a picture of you to pay. so i'll use this technology a bit later when it's been tested in real life. at the window of pneumonia, it is practical, but at the same time of it's suspicious, i'm pretty conservative when it comes to such things, i didn't like they deal can in my face. i think it may be used to control you. while it seems not everyone is eager to use the new system, yet, however, the creators say there's really nothing to fear. financials or of course, we protect all the personal data and steward securely. banking data which is used for payments is stored by banks. we have nothing to do with it and the photos that passengers download in our app to register a sort of biometric keys. so we do not store passengers, photos, travel authority, pay the faith pay system will never become mandatory or replace any of the other payments. they will all be in place and they phase of a nice little bonus, but the authorities do hope that it becomes popular and the new biometric
3:21 am
technology will cut down on wait time for the millions of people that use the moscow metro every single day. power, gar, key, moscow. so cities across the united states are raising that law enforcement budgets as follows, a surgeon crime since last year, when many local authorities cut spending following the whole the fund, the police movement. well, new york's new police budget is actually being hiked. now, by $200000000.00 in los angeles about $41000000.00 been added now to the budget. funding was cut their off the last years, george floyd riots. now the mayor of dallas, texas has reversed police cuts saying the city now needs to hire more officers than ever. well, new york storage, a magic rise and crime during september. often nearly a $1000000000.00 was shifted from the police to other departments. los angeles has also suffered, sta with a homicide rate hitting a 10 year high in the summer. and dallas says, grappling with
3:22 am
a spike in violent crime as well. last year, homicides day, will up by one quarter hitting a 20 year record. now it's a pattern scene across the u. s. since the modern killing of george floyd in minneapolis and the de from the police movement that followed. but retired a police officer, dominic ego things. money alone will not solve the problem. you're a mirror and you're going to appease the mob and you're going to say, yes, we're gonna define our agency that monetarily as taking away from the support of the village. because you're not keeping the police are equipped, educated, or whatever they need. and you're also sending in the police officers the message to police officers off. i don't value you. vs are the opinions of, of the angry mob. so you're, you're checking it on both those fronts. we already have, we do have a problem with bad apples and law enforcement and we need to have a stricter hiring policy. we need to have better training, but people's keep thinking that law enforcement, your, your 1st responder,
3:23 am
st cops is the number one, prevention to solve all crime problems when they're not looking at the judges are not looking at the public defender's are not looking at that. the judicial system and they're, they're thinking that either taking away or putting more funding in is gonna solve these problems in the 1st place. it's, it is such a ridiculous problem. it's never going to end, but it's, it's political. it is purely political. that's the biggest problem we're having germany is easing it's cove at travel restrictions and now it's causing air traffic . chaos in berlin. the city's main apple is struggling to handle the in russia passengers. as peter oliver now reports, the october school holidays here in germany, we're always going to be the 1st real test for berlin's beleaguered view. apple not gone great. the new b r is a stunner. dear to hand in your luggage the evening before your flight and then turn up for hours in advance for the flight. you might as well go by car to leipzig and fly from there on time capital city airport. can it get even worse at the b r,
3:24 am
the b e r airport is sinking into chaos. and now it is also at risk of insolvency without state aid, the airport is hardly viable. avoid b r and take another airport just because they stand on staff. the guests are having to turn up at the airport for hours in advance, and that with children, passengers being advised to arrive 4 hours before their flights as a mixture of covey restrictions, and staff shortages bite, g to increase passenger volume at the start of the holiday season we expect long awaits at jackins and security control at berlin brandenburg airport. for this reason, we would like to ask you to be at the airport at least 240 minutes before departure . obviously this isn't pleasant for travelers, but it's just the latest misstep in a long line of problems for this transport hub, which only opened last year after some serious delays. originally scheduled to
3:25 am
start flights in 2011 plans for the airport. started in the early ninety's in 2009 . the budget for the project was just on the 3000000000 euro, which with hindsight seems wildly optimistic. the construction came in over $7000000000.00 euro with additional work still required that will cost close to another $3000000000.00 even after 3 parliamentary committee investigations. no one is taken responsibility for the airport debacle. it became a job quite a few years ago. already. a was budget, i think initially around 2000000000 euros odd, build airport us. but generally an airport of the size would cost gold. and then it was for a little bit sakes. and i think the current total now including all the subsidies regarding to wrapped around $7000000000.00. and it's going and they're talking about having her put another 2000000000 subsidies into just keep it and running
3:26 am
until 2026. ah, for that kind of money they could have built for airports. this is a public project right from the beginning. or i should not, for instance, very from beginning who was supposed be a private project and nobody wanted to do it in this location, which is why the government could over. but the government made a bloody disaster of it. at one of the problems with the government doing it is a they don't really know what they're doing. and b, there's nobody that's really going to be held responsible for this and the end, which is really the, i'll probably, this is just one unmitigated disaster. these are unprecedented times, of course, as people start to travel again as covert restrictions all lifted. but the chaos with berlin's airport predate anybody having ever heard of the corona virus. it continues to give, kicking to those stereotypes of german efficiency that are so popular still with people that don't live here. it's estimated that between the 8th and the 24th of
3:27 am
october, around 1000000 passengers, including myself, next week, will fly through berlin brandenburg airport. the only advice from a lines on the airport themselves is arrive early and expect delays. peter, all of our tea, berlin, when it's fall, studying into our busy friday for your worldwide headlines here lie from moscow on arty international i rural research. i thank you for sharing your time with us here in moscow. we're back with soon, i should say at the top of the hour with more of your latest braking years. ah ah. well, join me every 1st bit on the alex simon. sure. and i'll be speaking to guess what the world of politics, sport business,
3:28 am
i'm sure business. i'll see you then when europe is mentioned, what do you think a place an idea, a common place with diverging ideas. maybe you think of a european union. think what you wish, but europe is in crisis. it must choose between being an ideological construct or a place with real people. and real me hello and welcome to so figure visionaries, me sophia shevardnadze. technology is promising to stave off old age, and scientists are working very hard to increase the sustainability of our organs,
3:29 am
including the most vital one our heart. what has change? why is real and what's not? well, i talk today to world renowned heart surgeon, dr. low buccheri a young don't. yup doctor know will carry. i'm so happy to see you and we haven't seen each other for such a long time. so much has happened since and just like to discuss all the changes that have happened in the past 10 years, including in your field of expertise that you did that his 3rd year mother to. so yeah, just can't seem to solve this puzzle question. good medical science and technology have advanced and methods of diagnoses are getting better of beauty. medication is more effective and targeted to day bullet that it gets you and still you say that hurt diseases are the plague of the 21st century. while american say that i 2030, the mortality rate will reach 23000000 people the what's due to me, i don't really understand how that's possible. yeah. huge for the market was,
3:30 am
wasn't that this point to medical science and pharmacology just can't keep up is, is we're talking about the entire world is c, v. s. and there are developed countries that have managed to significantly reduce the risks. here's retook mass with gerda in for in russia. more people say myocardial infarction nor occurs in younger people, said it's the opposite. you're close to the average age has even risen a little more. let me give you some figures that make me happy in your new york, even though it's not about our country, but was learning. i'm part of the dartmouth dialog, willa, you know, the format that started back in eisenhower time, who had yeah, when relations between our leaders was strained as you then you guinea, prima cough. and henry kissinger revived at your war. so there was this figure that ship a good 137000 people in the us that are over 100 years old started you could .
