1:02 pm
comes as 5 says it'll make a new version without a 100 days if the new variant proves to be resistant to the current job. however, both developers believe the current vaccines should already be effective enough against the emerging strain. but as governments figuring out better response plans, many people have found themselves stranded in the south africa, the newly imposed travel bands ortiz paul, asleep reports next from johannesburg, pulled dissolution distillation. frustration and anger, these are just some of the emotions that people here in south africa are experiencing. i'm here on the tambo important one is the, this is the main international airport in south africa. and as you can see, the airport is practically deserted. a far cry from the scenes we saw just a short time ago when thousands of people were riding here dis, but to get on any available flight. often announcement was made that most
1:03 pm
international travel in and out of 6 african states was being implemented. that announcement came as a complete surprise. you had people that were waiting boarded that was sitting on planes about to take off that they had to disembark. you had people that were waiting in the skies flying that had to turn around and come back. the situation such is that you now have tens of thousands of people who are stranded here in south africa. people who need to get back to jobs and families. and at the same time, you have so many people abroad, many of them, south africans desperate to get into the country. many of them have not been able to visit for at least 2 years. and they have loved ones, some of whom are sick, some of whom are elderly, here in the country, and waiting to see them. i say to them, okay, i'm coming to check in. will i be able to get home? i'm only going for 10 days. my mother and she started the computer interested. all the flats for december had been cancelled. so if you go,
1:04 pm
you can get back and if you get back, you're going to total parenting for 2 weeks and i've got 2 boys and i just knew that i, i actually had to knock for their flight. and i was devastated and heartbroken. have got double vaccinated, i've got a booster shot. i had all the documentation, i could have got on the flight and they would have taken me to south africa backs, australia closed the borders so that they wouldn't allow anybody to come back into the country. and so feels excessive and i feels very sadden, but i feel lack that obviously have information that's making them really concerned just in a few days. everything's really changed. i was out, i got a message from a friend. i'm checking the news and then more and more news updates had to keep checking. not knowing what would happen i'm and within 3 days, i mean it's all just completely changed and there's no way that i can go, i've been vaccinated 3 times. so i am as vaccinate as to be, i wouldn't make any difference. i do congratulate the, well,
1:05 pm
the leaders for taking such quick action. but i do think that they really need you to eat properly informed before making decisions that really affect the lives of so many people. the prices for the few remaining flights out of here have skyrocketed as has the cost of mandatory cova testing. now, the international community is very cognizant of the fact that as many as 7 out of 10 south africans have not been vaccinated. and this is partly because they're not enough vaccines in the county. and also because many south africans are worried about the long term effects of the vaccines that are on the market. now, south african scientists have been very vocal in saying that they were the 1st to come forward and be transparent about this new variant that has been found. things just, it's not a south african variant. and that it is elsewhere in the global community that instead of being pulled it south africa, has now been push on the blacklist policy r t to hunter's book south africa. the sex trafficking,

1:07 pm
circle of wealthy and powerful friends among the names that had come out as we reported quite extensively. prince andrew, the duke of your former new mexico governor bill richard, also famous defense attorney allan journalists, all of whom have denied the allegations leveled against them. the alleged victim, several of whom are here today at the court house, and other witnesses will reportedly testify under pseudonyms, but their identities will be revealed to the jury's. however, over the several years of this, the identity of those victims have come forward. we do know some of the most prominent ones, virginia roberts, cafe monk, several others. now, maxwell has pled not guilty to the charges against you're arguing along with her defense team that she's essentially being scapegoating and that she was being used as a pond by geoffrey epstein. epstein, of course, was found dead in his presence in his jail, so shortly after his arrest, back in august 2001, 900. by the way,
1:08 pm
myself and one of my friends photographers was one of the last journalists actually on as being a torrijos island in the, in the u. s. virgin islands before his death city medical examiner here in new york said, died by suicide by hanging as the jury. basically the jury been picked and there are several questions really calling about the trial among them. will dylan maxwell testifying the case? that's a very risky proposition. by the defense, for many reasons, all, well jer, see, and what we're hearing is that the answers yes from prosecutors will bring possible evidence from the quote unquote little black book that maxwell had. and also that epstein had of all been basically the names the numbers and contacts, including those wealthy and powerful friends. as i mentioned now, judge alison nathan, who has presided over many other high profile cases here, and has also been nominated for the circuit court of appeals. my president biden, which is next step,
1:09 pm
one step from the u. s. supreme court. she's already ruled against maxwell several times in maxwell's bid for bail sank, agreeing with prosecutors that she is a possible flight risk. now, the trial is expected to last, at least 6 to 6 weeks. so that would stretch it basically through christmas. christmas here in the united states, at the same court house by the way, where other high profile defendants had been including my boss, john gotti, and bernie made off. so this is day one of a very followed a trial. and then of course, the case that we've talked about, that's me, national and international headlines calling over the holidays as well as some hiring testimony to come over the next 6 weeks is the names that a lot of people are going to be looking out for. okay, for now outside the cold in new york. don't how to thank you. i returning to cove, it's and how we're going to get ourselves out of this latest chapter with alma corona was western governments push their citizens to get a boost, a shot. the world health organizations expressed opposition to rich nations
1:10 pm
extending their inoculation programs. while vaccination rates remain low in polar countries, across much of africa, for example, less than 10 percent of the populations had a single dose. no more vaccines should go to countries that have already boxing aided more than 40 percent of their population until kovacs has the vaccines. it needs to help other countries get there to no more boosters should be administered except to immunocompromised people. most countries with high vaccine coverage continue to ignore out cold for a global motor him on boosters on it is a huge point of contention and conversation right now we put it up for debate here . it would make no sense to ensure that most people at least get their 1st dose of the vaccine love and then pushing for people to have the the booster. but then i think, oh importantly, we have to look at the efficacy of the actual vaccine because we still know that
1:11 pm
people who have double days you can still partially and then also still and be affected by the virus off in. ready as one of the issues that i think they should be really nifty. now i think that education is key because we do still have a lot of hesitant people not wanting to take the vaccine. and also just really, it just seem quite unfair that they still mandate the nice is now mandatory that health workers should have the vaccine. i think it should also include education, the immunity generated by vaccination. decays, it over time, particularly actually in the elderly, the most vulnerable, and certainly off the 6 months. these booster shots clearly have a really significant impact. we've seen that in real world data from israel, for instance, where they rolled out the booster campaign. so we can see the value of booster shot, you know, variances are going to continue to be generated. ready as long as the forest is allowed to spread, particularly in countries, indeed like south africa, where vaccination rates are lower than what this emphasizes the need to control the
1:12 pm
pandemic at the global level as well as locally. and there is all it is in all our interests to support the role of axis across the world. and we shouldn't be in a position we're having to choose should be supporting the increased manufacturing distribution of vaccines. and we should choose between boosters for the most vulnerable and elderly and whether or not somebody else who hasn't been back, somebody gets their 1st job. and before they knew cove, it very and spreads around the world. and joe biden, at the barrow san francisco, facing a public backlash off to violating their own mask mandate. you can find more on that story and also got plenty more reporting for you online right now at l. t dot come next. at least 4 people have been killed and another 19 injured because of severe storms that a battering estoppel and popular tourist results in turkey. ah,

1:14 pm
a document suggesting that the german government urge members of the u. s. congress not to impose sanctions on the node stream to pipeline because this new would undermine us credibility and damage trans, atlantic alliance. unity would you confirm the german federal government's efforts to come to the sanctions. i can see the departmental chiefs of both the foreign and economics and technology ministries visited washington d. c. recently, and conducted fruitful negotiations with representatives of the u. s. government and congress. we are continuing intense coordination of efforts with the u. s. have ministration on the implementation of a joint statement on nordstrom to we regularly exchange of views on the subject on many levels. our position in regard to sanctions is well known where categorically against any sanctions against allies. so they should not surprise anyone to have the car while germany could become one of the main benefactors from nordstrom to gas pipeline, becoming operational. in fact, it could help the whole of the e u,
1:15 pm
you know, deal with the energy crisis. but according to the german ambassador in ukraine, north stream to gas pipeline is still at least 6 months away from that. now the whole construction has been hampered by some fierce opposition coming from the u. s . that has been slapping sanctions on various companies involved in the construction of the pipeline and coming from ukraine as well. see a huge chunk over rushes, gas gets into europe through caves, pipelines. so now with a new, a modern pipeline in place, kia fears that had services will become obsolete. that's despite breast repeated assurances coming from both germany and the russian president vladimir putin. that nord stream to will not be turned into an economic weapon. wave of a smash grab robbery, shook the u. s. during the thanksgiving holiday and the weekend black friday, sales with many pointing out that the police seem to be overwhelmed with the level
1:16 pm
of crime that erupted and with the christmas holidays just around the corner. now people are asking if the authorities can actually keep their cities safe with their hands apparently tied by new policies or on that next from saskia. taylor remember the days of good cop bad cop while back on in case you missed the memo. now every cop is a body. well we need to completely dismantled the minneapolis police department. i did go off to george floyds. mother people came for policing budgets were slashed, force was a no go stop and such without accountability was in. so where are we now? while the politicians who pull the money plug, leaving police departments high and dry, might feel safe from that gated communities. but for the rest of america,
1:17 pm
while from coast to coast from small town to big cities, crime is on the rise. one year and the biggest annual spike of homicides in 60 years later states and now trying to false track, return to the good old days of law. in order to reverse the tide of rising crime, we need to stop deem demonizing and sabotaging the dedicated men and women who risked their lives every single day to keep the rest of us safe enough is enough. we can nod the fond the police. we need to re fod the police. instead of less funding, we need more investment in public safety and a knife in the back of the democrat law makers everywhere. almost 90 percent of marilyn's black voters back him. because if they have been most affected by fewer
1:18 pm
patrol cars in the neighbourhood, and this isn't a one off this year, has seen a wave of pro police candidates be elected all across the country from liberal seattle, to minneapolis, the very place george floyd died at the hands of a police officer, the lift really does go on. it turns out that lol assess is not as exciting in real life as it is in the westons. and for the democrats already terrified of the mid term bloodbath. this could be a debt now, already blue republicans, the proud gun toting law and order party a polling 8 percent higher than democrats nationally. it's almost like voters have realized that it's one thing to shout a slogan to make a gesture. it's another thing to come up with a real game plan. it does not present any sort of plan for what will come after. there is no specificity as to what services would provide what law enforcement would look like. what residents can expect. police might be back in demand,
1:19 pm
but it looks like too little too late. the usaa saying, record numbers of offices leaving the force and recruitment numbers away down despite all types of incentives to boost them. when you start treating those who hunt for criminals as the criminals themselves, then also willing to go out and take a bullet few, a lot of the competent people who would make good police offices, a refraining because they feel that they can go to prison for doing their job, 3, a police officer, you put your life in jeopardy. now some feel they're not protected. the criminals have more rights than police officers today. the car for what you wish for what started as a cat, t slogan and a bid to be. now, with the voters turned into a radical agenda, that's been kind to criminals and cruel to the lawful. and a major diplomatic snob, france has abruptly withdrawn its invitation to britain to key european talks on migration. despite the deaths of dozens more migrants tried to cross the english
1:20 pm
channel. and paris says that the u. k is not doing enough to stop the record flows of asylum seekers. the dorsey legs were thank you. look on, great britain has firstly to take its responsibilities and limit the economic attraction of its territory and allow a legal way for asylum requests since they have to take their part in. secondly, it needs to take on the smugglers or 20 butter. british home secretary, pretty patel. described france is movers, unfortunate. the manual becomes angry at an open letter from boris johnson, which the president thinks ships the blame for the migrant crisis to france. more than $23000.00 migrants have tried to cross the english channel already. this shift, almost triple the number seen in 2020. the deaths of $27.00 asylum seekers last wednesday being described as one of the deadliest days since the crisis began. and despite france snubbing britain that talks, brussels says that co operation is key. i think it's of the utmost importance that they give the highest priority to manage this difficult situation is important with
1:21 pm
the close of cooperation between member states and together with our agencies. it's also important to work of course closely together with the u. k. we have to prevent lives being lost. we have to prevent a chaos coming to our external borders. from a u. k. independence party, emmy payday. the cockburn says britain must become less financially appealing to migrants. essentially, european union want to look offload a lot of migrants on ours and you know, they, they haven't been doing their best to stop them coming over. i'm, quite frankly, the british government need to do something. and i agree with the european union in many ways they've got britain has got to stop being so attractive to you know, to, to, the less force as far as the world and problem with great britain is, it's very attractive because we, you know, in your opinion you have to contribute to the system before you get anything out of it or is britain is given according to need. and the problem with that is there is
1:22 pm
open ended and we ended up paying a lot of money for these people to come me a when they arrived. and of course they going to come to you, kate, get nothing in france. so there are, why shouldn't we want to come to the u. k, but we've got to stop. that's got to stop the british taxpayers. great enough, trouble with cor, was at the moment. and our hot schools are in trouble. and we, you know, we, we just don't need extra pressure. i know coast being a big problem as well. the ukranian journalists in hot water after he uploaded a video of him firing and artillery. got no, what he claimed were russian occupies boy. oh, still, i must admit, i may have been involved in the killing of some people and on bass, but exclusively in the death of russian occupiers. or if it's a self says that he posted the video on a national day of remembrance of a famine. the devastating the soviet union in the 19th thirty's. but the videos being cited as proof of ukraine violating a cease fire deal designed to and a years long civil war near the russian border. or critics of the stun took to
1:23 pm
twitter to vent their outrage. under only such journalists lived in ukraine, looks like cubes chased away all those who dare to tell the truth about ukraine shelling and killing peaceful population in dumbass. just blatantly violating minsk agreements and trying to shift the blame on russia. this video confirms not only the fact of the use of prohibited heavy weapons by the armed forces of ukraine, but also the fact that anyone who wishes can shoot to the territory of the dumbass republics in addition to the ukrainian military. if this is what journal is doing, ukraine imagined what their government and arm is doing all in response to the backlash here. but i saw her date at his post him where she partly back tracked on his original word with claim that the video had been shot a long time ago and was not in violation of any ceasefire agreement of clarity on the situation. we heard from journalist bry mcdonald, who had the russia in former soviet union desk at anti dotcom for what he's
1:24 pm
basically doing it. he's created a priestly then now, whereas if you are a militia man, a rebel or if you want to call them. and in the don bask looking at that on the internet, you're thinking how many other journalists are doing this. and you're starting to think, well, they're making themselves competent there. and that's the danger of it. and you know, you reboot yourself is a very radical guy. he's known for it, i mean he's, he certainly blurs the line between activism and journalism. but then again, this is a feature of ukrainian media for the last 6 or 7 years. i mean, you need to look at their twitter accounts. there's so many ukrainian journalists, you've got political statements on their twitter accounts, you know, ranging from crimea, the crane to, to support of individual political figures in ukraine. something that wouldn't really happen in russia certainly wouldn't happen in western europe. for example. you could imagine that in any normal country, unfortunately, modern ukraine is not very normal. in any normal country, you will be prosecuted. i mean, he's a civilian, he's not a military officer who is fired and military weapons in a war zone. i mean,
1:25 pm
in any normal country that would get your jail time. imagine. and that's the way it looks for moscow so far this tuesday, thanks for watching. i'm calling bright back here to update you in 35 minutes. me see. oh seem wrong. what else? just don't hold any world to shape out disdain because the attitude and engagement equals the trail. when so many find themselves worlds apart, we choose to look for common ground. oh
1:26 pm
is your media a reflection of reality? in the world transformed? what will make you feel safer? isolation for kim unity. are you going the right way or are you being that somewhere? which direct? what is true was is great. in the world corrupted, you need to descend a join us in the depths or remain in the shallows. you a tool that was bad for your eyes and your post just that it would stop you from having

real friends and finding a go friend. but what they fail to mention is that you can make thousands of dollars every weekend by simply playing video games with stacy please look up a little bit ago. we formed the fortune of wesley with georgia resume. if i misread connecticut multiple to do stuff is no longer going. of course to make video games a high paying job. you have to be gifted and quick witted. i'm going to open up with bikes. so took those to nick nicholas to live near bottom. and miss thompson with webpage bentley up in the else produce park even established yet glove boy, when you mo stormy, i'm of is do it out or you mean it was it niels? feel like it guy of the owner. but i would that be cool with, with these up defeated? odd to do. i also use a when i was showing wrong when i
1:28 pm
a yes to shape out disdain becomes the african and engagement it was the trail. when so many find themselves worlds apart, we choose to look so common ground is driven by drainage shaped bank thinkers. those with theirs sinks, we dare to ask ah,
1:29 pm
[000:00:00;00] with the simple story is that the decline of the us postal service coincides with the rise of the internet, an e mail, and that story is just too simplistic. first,
1:30 pm
class mail volumes have declined and that has created financial pressure. but if you look at mail volume as a whole, particularly if you look at the parcel segment, they have grown substantially. looking at internet use, people with more use of the internet or more access to the internet tend to get more mail. ah, the roll and influence of private corporations is tremendous. and their ability to shape the legal environment than really reflects their desire to limit competition . if the postal service lives out of the way that you think it fedex, and you could charge more for what they do if the postal service was out of the way that you think the vampires and congress could sell off all the property and all the assets the postal service has in steel that money are all across the united states. we're
