1:02 pm

by doing that, that you would an increase the rate of cooperation tax in some countries that they would then be able to use that extra revenue that's generated in order to fund social projects with the idea of pulling people out of poverty. this hasn't gone down well with everyone though skeptic say that a lonely, really benefit those nations that are already wealthy. the plan from the u. s. point of view is to raise their a corporation tax level, which already stands at around 21 percent up to about 28 percent. critics, including charity is an organization's looking to fight poverty and happy that this is the way forward. in fact, fox farm have called this a mockery of fairness the world is experiencing the largest increase in poverty indicates and a massive explosion inequality. but this dale will do little or nothing to hold either his dad, it is already being seen by some wealthy nations as an excuse to cut domestic
1:04 pm
corporate tax rates risk in any race to the bottom, or the j. 20 seems to be ending with one su, that we thought was put to bed before it even got underway, raising its head again. that's the, the dispute between australia, france, and the united states, really over the orchestra deal. now that was the defense pockets the between australia, the united kingdom in united states. what it ultimately did that defense pack though, was it cut france out of a $66000000000.00 us dollar deal to provide submarines to australia. we saw u. s. president joe biden meeting with frances, a manual micron on friday, reconciliation the pose word all over the hatchet well and truly varied. am hon shakes? no, i'm sorry, no, i'm sorry, no, thank you. no, thank you, being offered from the 2 leaders really. and am it now turns out though, that what was said by joe biden, that he hadn't being made fully aware of exactly what was going on with the deal, might not be the case. we can now listen to what the u. s. president had to say, and what is come out from the australian prime minister?
1:05 pm
i was under the impression that fridge hadn't form long before. that he was young, too honest. it was always a difficult decision force trailer. it was the right decision force trailer and we work closely with the united states in the united kingdom and we kept them up to date the u. s. administration with, well, we're at and i'll various discussions with france. i seems like there still might be a little more awkwardness over orcus to comb just yet. that's the way it looks here in rome at the g. 20 it all wraps appear this afternoon on sunday. i'll be bringing you. any news that comes out though, in those final moments here on our, to international attempts by the us and france to patch things up, took sudden placed the sweeping endorsement of a minimum 15 percent tax on the world's largest corporations and economists to explain to us why wealthy nations like the u. s. will be the main beneficiaries. it will never be in the interest of the government,
1:06 pm
the u. s. government and any other wealthy structures to get more faxes, but what they do with it, or it doesn't really influence food, but if it's new, does, joe speaking, countries involve your companies rather based involving countries or can re much less affected by this the global gonna attach more effect go to work. i personally wouldn't try to create a, a global block of minimum patches. but one thing that could be done is also to lower the barriers to, to bringing technology skills, information transfer to all the nations of the world with actually actually there a barrier to actually don't. we don't get our help going from they, they're a barrier to the spread of information, the raisins, productivity, and raises standards of living. all that's from down to a big stores of the weekend, the paramedics in the u. k. hope res. fears of an unprecedented crisis facing the ambulance service there with one local department, even pleading with the public to think twice before calling. because they're simply on enough staff to cover the workload. south central ambulance services declined
1:07 pm
a critical incident. g 2 extreme precious across our services, our staff and volunteers are working extremely hard to respond to cause, but the volume is overwhelming. there are absolutely situations where people waiting many, many hours, both to get into the hospital. and then once they've been in the hospital waiting to see a doctor course, it has a detrimental effect on anybody who's waiting for hours either in london. so sitting in emergency departments and nobody working in those services wants to see that happens. but there is a huge amount of pressure on there. now, just at the moment, meanwhile, ambulances of being forced to stay in queue for hours outside hospitals, which are struggling to cope themselves with the demand for beds. a number of medics of posted pictures like these on social media. one paramedic demanding urgent action after showing 25 ambulance cruise waiting to enter. an emergency department adding is not even winter yet. while earlier this month,
1:08 pm
the patient died off the waiting more than 5 hours in the back of an ambulance. we arrived on the edge and it is the middle of october. it would require an incredible amount of luck for us not to find ourselves in the midst of a profound crisis. over the next 3 months, the u. k. governments put the country on something akin to a war footing to deal with the coven cases, and also get ready for that crucial winter flu season. troops have been trained to dr. ambulances. some 4000 of them are on stand by to help the n h. s. cope with the winter season earlier, the british defense secretary said soldiers are also ready to assist with administering vaccines, testing for coven, and other general support in hospitals. this is why new daily cove it cases in the u. k. skyrocketed in july, they've remained high ever since. and doctors fear that those numbers combined with the flu season could overwhelm the health system. and it just chiefs also want the prime minister to implement it's more stringent plan b for this winter. that's gonna include vaccine passports, compulsory face masks,
1:09 pm
to although so far the government's holding back in there are other things that the government could could in it could be doing. and yes, they should be absolutely seriously considering this at this point in time before things go too far, hospital i working has been on what we call black alert, which means that beds are absolutely full of patients up for a number of weeks now. and we are not coming across the whole system. many hospitals are very full with patients and we know that hospitals actually been at their most efficient if they're not absolutely full up with at patients. and it does mean that knock on effects out that at those patients who are waiting for urgent a jury school require in particular, intensive care beds are high dependency care on not being processed and not being cared for in a timely way. and we know that is the case. there are 5700000 people on waiting lists within the n h. s. at present, which it sadly is probably going to get worse before it gets better. the fate of
1:10 pm
whistleblower julian sand remained in limbo this week after a 2 day extradition appeal hearing at london's high court. the u. s. is challenging britain's decision not to expedite him to america on health grounds there. he's one to buy washington on 17 charges of espionage. i'm one of conspiracy to hack a government computer. if convicted assange, who exposed to lead to western war crimes, could face the prison sentence of a 175 years. although it might be several months before a final verdict in the cases reached the i the judges just said they will take everything into consideration, but no ruling was handed out immediately. the entire day was devoted to hearing arguments before by the prosecution for the grounds of appeal, why they want to appeal to judge's decision not to extradite the fund. and there were 5 grounds of appeal. and so the 2 main topics are, of course, a san jose health and the assurance is a diplomatic assurances given by the united states in terms of health. what the
1:11 pm
prosecution have been trying to do is accuse a key medical, extra witness professor compliment of being disingenuous of misleading the court by concealing the identity of a son, just partner stella morris and the 2 children. we finally heard the yahoo news story, the investigative journalism that was done a few weeks ago where 30 us officials confirmed what we already knew from anonymous testimony that the c i was discussing, plans to potentially kidnap or poison julian as orange in london. and so this was brought up in the context of why couple men, why professor coleman should not disclose the identity of a song, his partner and their 2 children, because he feared for their safety. when it comes to the assurances the united states is giving. they say that drilling function service sentence in australia, but australia has not even indicated if they will take you in his arms. this is a process that takes many years. the truth is the drilling a songs will most definitely be played in it, leaf administrative segregation. and if not, he'll be sent to
1:12 pm
a special housing unit. so there's a wide array of tools that not a safe youth to break him once he's on us soil. and then we'll certainly we'll or during both days of the hearing a santa support is rallied outside court. they want his immediate release and chanted in journalism is not a crime. others express growing concern over whistleblowers health thing, floyd, co founder and long time, some support of what to waters told out say that he believed the whole case is a huge miscarriage of justice. this is an absolute nonsense that this man has been locked up for a single day. whether it's in the ecuadorian embassy or in bel marsh. and this is what this is one of the most valuable human beings that we the human race have. amongst us. he is deeply, deeply important to the potential for this race to survive on this planet. in my view, that is why julian or sanchez in prison because he's interfering with their cunning planter. still the planet sort of ripened to death and then destroy. it is
1:13 pm
a disgusting miscarriage of justice. look at guantanamo bay, asked shaka, alma, my friend, ask anybody who has been in the hands of the u. s. judiciary. and at any point, possibly since the 2nd world war with whom they did not agree. and you will find that there's no justice to be found in the united states. i'm so angry and i'm so bad. i'm so disgusted with the united kingdom. oh, i did a radio program last night. john ship, tim was on it and he was extremely eloquent. and i asked him how he, how he manages his grief and, and he was absolutely, he was so moving to listen to, he says, willie, he puts it to one side as it goes through his life. and his life is entirely
1:14 pm
devoted to the freeing of his son, so he can go to his wife and children. and john says that late at night he may retreat into his melancholy. and i felt my heart lurch in my chest. as i listened to this man saying yes, and i felt his melancholy hit me like a, i'm a blow on my chest. we are not going on anywhere at all. and our voice is going to get louder and louder and louder than to julian sanchez said, free. i can promise you that more about the stories from the week to come, including this, the key suspect from the january capital riot who was caught on camera encouraging people to storm the building is quietly removed from the f. b i's most wanted list . that's got people scratching their heads and wondering whether he's actually connected to the government. more on that when the weekly returns after the break.
1:15 pm
ah ah. what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it crazy confrontation. let it be an arms race. is an offense, very dramatic development. only personally, i'm going to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successfully, very critical time. time to sit down and talk ah, you have to understand that so much of this later stuff is theatrical. it's purely theatrical. nato did not fight for georgia in 2008 it onto planned to fight for georgia. there was not the slightest consideration of fighting the georgia and cause it didn't fight the ukraine in 2014 either. and there is absolutely no
1:16 pm
intention anywhere in western europe to send a single dot short danish or german or french soldier to fight in ukraine. ah ah, came over this sunday's news for you next. there have been multiple injuries after an attack on the tokyo metro. saskia taylor has the details. what do we know so far? well, at around 8 pm, local time in the japanese capital of tokyo, police were allowed to to an ongoing attack on one of the cities trade lions. now what this attack entailed is still being investigated, but what we do know is that the person suspected of being responsible has been taken into custody of reportedly. this is a man who went on to one of the trained carriages wielding
1:17 pm
a knife and possibly sprayed some kind of flammable substance before setting it on fun. this obviously caused a great deal of panic and pale people were terrified from the videos that i for people to fling to the other end of characters, some even trying to squeeze through some of those courage windows. finally, at this stage, there are no se talley teens reported the reports all conflicting, but we're looking at multiple injuries, according to some around 10 people, one person seriously hot. and they were treated by a number of ambulances that appeared very quickly at the scene as the extent of the damage to the train. well, there were images of some very fond seats, so that is the picture at the moment. now briefly, i will say this, the very busy train line i, it's in the west of the city. it's primarily a commute to train does car around 1400000 people daily. of course, it's a sunday those a few people thankfully around to be harmed. that said, it is a very important day for japan because it is voting in the general actions. so
1:18 pm
maybe more people would have been out and about as a final thing, i will say though that unfortunately this is not a one off incident. comes just runs 3 months off to 9 people wounded in a stopping attack on another commute to train in tokyo. also in august, a woman had us it thrown and her face on the capitals subway. so this does appear at this stage to be ready for the latest and quite a worrying series of events. suskin taylor that will video video was also circulating on social media, purportedly shoving, the prime suspect dressed up like bout man's joker will be it without the grotesque makeup. he appeared to be patiently waiting for police to arrive before being late or detained. a local media suggesting that he may have been suicidal. quoting him as saying that he intended on being court so that he could be sentenced to death. or it's not often that someone disappears entirely from the f. b, i's most wanted list, but that's what's happened to a man who said to be a key figure in january's capitol hill, riots in washington. in january,
1:19 pm
he was caught on camera telling people to storm the building, and it's got some including republican party members raising questions about who exactly the mysterious figure is in the wake. had him open reported on that 4th. an individual featured in videos calling for people to enter the capital building, even before the january 6th capital riot and was seen on the day. january 6th, ushering crowds into the capital building has been identified by law enforcement as arizona resident re, apps. re apps in arizona man seen invite la circulated medias. telling champ, support is on multiple occasions to go into. the capitol also seemed to have acted on his own. i don't know like a say, oh, we need to go with godaddy. ah,
1:20 pm
not surprisingly, he was on the f. b i's most wanted list them was referred to as suspect. 16 for some time. s b i w s. so is seeking the public's assistance in identifying those who made unlawful entry into the u. s. capital building on january the safe. but now suspect 16 has been scrubbed from the f b i website. now if you take a look at the way back machine from archive dot org, you can see that from january 8th, 2021, all the way until june 30th, i suspect 16 was pretty clearly highlighted, but suddenly, on july, 1st he wasn't on the website. any longer now, if he'd been arrested, he would still be on the website just with arrested under his name, like others who have been apprehended. but he's not, he's just been scrubbed. this has prompted lawmakers to ask questions about whether or not there were f b. i provocative tours who may have helped events on january 6th to go the way they
1:21 pm
did. far as we can find this individual has not been charged with anything. can you tell us without talking about particular incidence or particular videos? how many agents or assets of the federal government were present on january 6, whether they agitated to go into the capital, and if any of them did a saw, i'm not going to violate this norm of follow the rule of law. i'm not going to comment on best a geisha that's ongoing. now the capital breach database has no entries or listings for re apps to some. that's a pretty big red flag. the ongoing mystery of re epps. he repeatedly appears in videos encouraging and inciting an invasion of the capital on january the 6th. yet for some reason has not yet been indicted were charged even as people with far less involvement have been. reps is a free man. he has never been arrested or charged nearly 10 months after jonya. the 6th, the fbi i in justice department still refused to comment on with the eps has ever
1:22 pm
been served. a search warrant the f b. i is record when it comes to things like protests and provocations, is not exactly squeaky clean. people can look up the history of cohen tell pro infiltration and other dirty deeds if january 6th is such a pivotal date and us history as it's being presented. surely, questions like those surrounding suspect? 16 demand answers. caleb martin, r t new york an anti joe biden song called let's go. brandon has quickly climbed to the top of america's itunes hip hop child despite being pulled from some social networks. youtube pulled track by rapid bryson gray, claiming that it contained medical misinformation. the song takes aim at president biden's, bungled african withdrawal, but also is handling of the corona virus pandemic. youtube says that the platform doesn't allow claims about cov, the conflict with medical guidelines, a charge which the rapid denies. there's
1:23 pm
a 1000000 songs best out right now. and if you're trying to act like a song, i can't say findings in a saw where you band. if that means you're bending my art, but me bending my you was going on. you can band, aren't your band anything? i don't curse on my music. i'm a positive music and i do have my views and my music. i don't even curse and i'm the most sense a wrapper in the world. how is that possible? i say what i believe in my song, everything i say in my real life, and this is what i believe it should be illegal or social media company to be able to change their guy lives every week. i've been delete things that came prior to that. they actually are playing with our free speech. nobody is messing with them. they're missing the bus. on the tight of the head comes from a growing internet catch phrase. it went viral after an n. b. c reporter was interviewing nascar racing, dr. brandon brown. instead it sounded like the crowd behind him was chanting, let's go, brandon. apparently failing to realize what people were actually say. yeah.
1:24 pm
ah, ah, ah. well, the song comes as joe biden's approval ratings noticeably dipped according to a new survey. currently sits below 45 percent down 11 points since his inauguration in january, meaning his popularity is declined faster than all of his predecessors since the 2nd world war. bryson gray says that the president's finding the job tough going until a mean a people now a lottery will say, let's go brand new for me. best perfect. ah, leaking somebody, it doesn't curse biker. so my, the same for president, biding people, call trumpet dictatorship. there's nothing more similar to what day to step in what jo buyers currently doing and what a lot of companies are doing talent products segregate. that's needed and back from a business like jim crow, 2 point, oh, meantime the world medical watch store continues to sound. the alarm about the ongoing coping pandemic, and insists that it can only be stopped. one way the pandemic will. and when the
1:25 pm
world chooses to end it, it is in our hands. we have all the tools we need. effective public health tools and effective medical toombs some of the biggest names, same business across europe and asia gathered in the italian city of verona this week with climate change, the gas crisis and e relations high on the agenda of the your ration economic for his article responded, shall dubin skate reporting from the event? this is where the big questions were debated over 2 days at eurasian economic forum in verona. as cop 26 now starts in glasgow, the environment was definitely on many minds with warning that it depends on strong political will. and the change in how we live our lives. the sheila,
1:26 pm
capital environmental issues depend on 3 sides, consumers, businesses and politicians, and all of them oppose environmental solutions for consumers don't want to consume less. businesses want to increase profits to produce more and more. and politicians are afraid of discussing the issue as they may not be re elected. if they order people to consume less and pessimists worry, it will all end in some sorts of environmental dictatorship. the viability of the new status on the world stage was also questioned. there were calls for it to find a clue, says strategic alliance with russia to build on the strength of eurasia, which could act as a balance to china and to the us. there were plenty of other har taking words to about the you, particularly over its management of the current energy crisis. we are in a complete a mass now in your room market her are feeling completely at the

1:28 pm
a high gas prices are linked to the miscalculations of the european union? as far as we know, russia has supplied about 15 percent more gas than its existing contracts cover. also, as for the gas that was supposed to come from the us, out of the 28000000000 europe received only 7 because the rest went asia. so what can we take away from verona? well, to some of the panelists up, the world has changed and we need to be prepared for that change, which could significantly impact government's business. and you and i, it's now a multi polar world. and if the e is to find a way to have a real voice, it needs to look for alliances to the east charlotte, even sky r t, verona. and that is the weekly for this, our next how the dysfunction in the us health care systems, lowering life expectancy, and one of the world richest nations life for moscow. this is our

1:30 pm
drugs. whatever will be, 1st of all charge to add what's called the charge master price, which is usually a very high price that is far in excess of what the hospital needs to pay to deliver the service. the chargemaster is a list of items, hospital services, billable to a patient. every hospital maintains its own charge, master and sets its own prices or each item medical procedures, drugs, diagnostic evaluations, and so on. in the chargemaster is assigned a unique code and a set price which is not related to the patient. so its impossible for them to know exactly what they been billed for. ah, hospital systems employ all kinds of people to work in as.
