newly discovered dinosaur they call, the king of gore. we are beginning to get details from the philippines after a direct mit from one of the most powerful storms every recorded. huge waves crashed ashore, as supertyphoon haiyan made landfall. the are island of lehte is wrecked. spotty communication, filipino authorities credit report at least expwhrp 110 people are debt in tekloban. two c-140 cargo planes have left there and they are trying clear the runway. >> goa what's the lateliest?
>> well, we understand that government aircraft have now been able to land in lehta which is believed to be the worst affected island. and initial reports are saying that there are innewer rabble can casualties on leyte many coavment villages was given fair warning that there somewhere would be a storm surge by it, we understand if waves as high as 15 feet also crashed on the island because it was supposed to be a tropical storm. there is only so much you can do to prepare for the strength of haiyan, one of the strongest in history, and also the damage could be in the millions of dollars. the government itself have
published 1.5 million to help. we're exactly trying, much of the philippine islands, people there have not been heard from in over 24 hours. the government saying there is no need to panic and this could be because the power lines are down, and cell phone sites are also inoperational. they need to at least have some information coming out. >> on the phone with us is nicola jones, from the somewhere international storm center. what can you tell us about the damage and the impact here? >> the typhoon came earlier. fortunately it didn't make landfall on this island but what
i he did was bring intrm some rain and high winds. this island just three weeks ago was devastated by a massive earthquake and ot the moment we have got seam teams hitting, is what they will need and that will be an ongoing emple, from towards the east of here, two places, leyte, takriban, we're trying to get a clear story of how many buildings were destroyed. spl. >> how does the are red cross work in a place like this? the international red cross is working, credit they have
about half of the a million volunteers and staff as well, everybody was already in place. mrm teams were ready to be deployed, rapid ask assessment, certain and record. it is radio big coordinated effort across all of the effected islands. >> what does the pred cross, obviously going to be shelter now. and we had already in anticipation of this, the international red cross had been looking fors.to make sure our shellkinn will need things like emergency are tarpaulinless, building buildings smerktd will be the last, beyond that there will be longser term recovery.
>> nicola jones with the internationaadditional informat. kevin cor corriveux. no. in terms of the rain, not scidges the last the for the search and recovery. now, with this storm we now have the newest update from the joint typhoon warning center saying, 132 miemp winds, not a superdie foorn anymore. we think this is going to continue no keep its intensity. ought lets look at the new track
it's coming out, expected to hit the central to southern coastline of vietnam. the change is that it has now come a little bit further to the south. that means it's going to be doing is more of a direct hit person diperpendicularly to the coastline. we see storm surge 85%. is gls secretary of state john kerry are flew to geneva, from diplomatic editor james bays has this story. >> smiles from the u.s. secretary of state, but still no deal. >> optimistic mr. kerry?
>> his counterparts decided to fly here to personally take part in the negotiations with the iranians. >> i want to emphasize that there is no agreement at this point in time. but the p-5 is working hard and i look forward to the pleeghts we will be having shortly. >> no one is giving a running commentary on the progress of these talks but the iranians have said even though a deal is close there are still difficult sticking points. >> translator: we have now entered the very difficult and sensitive phase of editing the text that will be published should the talks reach agreement soon. it is possible the talks will take more time but given the sensitivity of the discussions we can see the ministers are eager to participate and we have to see what the results will bring. >> clearly all these ministers can't stay in geneva for days on
end but there's a real determination to get a deal done now and not adjourn these talks. they know that if that happens there are many in ra israel, the arab world and in the u.s. who would try to kill the deal before it was even signed. jaimentsd bays, al jazeera. richelle carey has more. >> talks will go into a third day. iran hopes a deal, believed to to be enriching and converting uranium and one facility where some suspect that iran is conducting nuclear weapons research. that is what prompted sanctions against the country. the sanctions target 18 countries from a variety of industries like oil production banking and insurance and the
bulk of the essential restrict transaction is. the iranian people, their wages and savings are suffering, unemployment is widespread and the economy has weakened in recent years. they hope that the end to the sanction he will bring jobs. however the hard liners are opposed to bowing to international are pressure. >> we don't accept it. if our ties are going to be normal the u.s. should change its interactions with iran and i don't think the political atmosphere of society has reached the point where people or the government will accept a condescending or unequal relationship. >> saturday, russian foreign minister sergey lavrov will join the talks. >> richelle, thank you.
israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu post office the deal. >> mindful of this, president obama called are netanyahu. joining us to talk about these talks in geneva is jamal abdi. jaxal, welcome. >> my pleasure. >> what is your reaction to benjamin netanyahu's statement there? >> i think it's becoming very clear that benjamin netanyahu is not interested in this deal, or any deal with iran. his efforts to ratchet up samtions, to level military threats, to goad president obama into doing the same, i think these are all being revealed as very transparent and not having to anything to do with actually attempting to resolve this
dispute with a deal or supporting any sort of off ramp in which iran does not obtain too nuclear weapon, and this standoff is result. i think that benjamin netanyahu is interestonly in keeping iran isolated and that's why he's obstructing this deal. >> the last few years or many years of rhetoric from iran is that iran wanted to destroy israel, right? >> well, mahmoud ahmadinejad said a lot of things, they don't have the capability to destroy israel. the president of iran that is the now in office is not saying these things. >> if you listened to the cleric we just heard a while ago, seems like most iranians do not want this deal either. >> there are many hard liners in iran who don't see this as in
their best interest. >> why? >> because their entire source of power is dependent on the standoff with the west. that's not the case for rouhani but he definitely last opponents who are dedicated to not doing this deal. >> they thought a deal could be done by the end of this week. it hasn't been done yet. did they jump the gun? >> i don't think so. i think what iran is indicating that they are ready to make the concessions that would be necessary to get an interim deal. basically to agree to a framework in which the steps are laid out. but i think what they were trying to do was put the onus on the united states. because what needs to be ironed out is not necessarily what iran is going to do, i think that's clear. but what is iran going to get for that? what sort of agreement would the united states be willing to accept? i think that was the tactic with
making that type statement. >> isn't it also whether or not the united states and the west can trust that iran and verify that iran does not have a nuclear program, a nuclear arms program? >> yeah, and that's exactly what the deal is intended to do. it's intended to put the mechanisms in place where the international community can actually ramp up the inspections. i mean there are inspectors in iran. they monitor the sites on a weekly basis. but we want that ramped up to guarantee that iran doesn't have the ability to cheat. in order to do that you have to put inspections in place, to ramp up inspections but the only way to verify is to get a deal. military action, sanction he can't do it only amilitar accrea diplomatic deal will do this. >> health and human services
secretary kathleen sebelius says treatment in line with physical care. >> now that incredibly important law combined with the affordable care act will expand and protect behavioral health benefits for more than 62 million americans. this is the largest expansion of behavioral health coverage in pooh generation. >> meanwhile the white house is facing more problems with healthcare.gov. jeff zeinz who is leading the effort to fix site, says his group is miking progress but discovering more roadblocks. why are people moving up and trying to find work? we'll ask the labor secretary. and twitter's brand-new stock has made a lot of people very rich but some people living in san francisco say their new wealthy is costing them their homes.
what happens when social media uncovers unheard, fascinating news stories? >> they share it on the stream. >> social media isn't an after-thought, it drives discussion across america. >> al jazeera america's social media community, on tv and online. >> this is your outlet for those conversations. >> post, upload and interact. >> every night share undiscovered stories. >> it was another record-setting
day for stocks. for the second time this week the dow jones industrial average closed at an all time high. a better than expected jobs report fueled the buying. this is the fifth winning week in a row for the blue chip average. economists are expected -- economists expected businesses to slow down hiring because of the recent ghoft smownt. instead employers, added 204,000 jobs in october beating estimates. the unemployment rate rose anyway to 7..3%. now the percentage of working age people participating in the labor force fell 8% to 62% signaling growth discouragement among long term unemployed. as real money's ali velshi points outs, the results were mixed. >> more americans drop out of the work fog, the so-called
labor force pearpghts rate, the percentage of people who are actually working or looking for work, dropped to 62.8%, that's the lowest rate in more than 35 years. moments after the reason friday of the new job report i asked labor secretary thomas perez why america continues to see a drop in labor participation. >> given effects of the shutdown, what we saw last month as i mentioned was the highest one-month increase in the number of people who are out of work temporarily since they began keeping data in 1967. but we also have to be mindful of is the fact that as the population ages labor force participation resolution along with that. the best remedy is to grow the economy and that's why the president keeps talking about investing in our road infrastructure.
investing in our human capital infrastructure, passing immigration reform. because as we create those jobs that will come from those investments then you'll get more people back in the workforce and that's why these self-inflicted wounds are so frustrating. >> it's so remarkable, it has not kept up with any form of inflation. we have a minimum wage that does not suggest that we are one of the most wealthy countries in the world and yet business leaders even small employers continue to come out and say if you mandate a high are minimum wage one that is above $10 an hour you will crush the ability to how do you square that circle? >> i've tokd to many business leaders that have said that increasing the minimum wage is not only a moral imperative, it's an economic impair advertised. the economy -- imperative.
henry ford knew that in 1914, he said they ought to be able to afford the cars that they're helping to make. >> john, this is an issue we will be looking into more closely next week. an average of $10.10 would take a big chunk out of this but some say too much is too much. >> twitter closed down more than 7%, closing the day at $41.60 a share. that is still 60% above the price for yesterday's ipo. >> not everybody is celebrating that ipo. as each new infusion of high tech money is coming into the
state, older people have been forced out. >> new buildings shot up block after block, supply doing its best with the demand. but the situation has left san francisco's less advantaged behind. >> now it's about money and greed and with -- it's very competitive. the i.t. crowd, is a very competitive crowd. >> artist rene yunyez is being evicted. >> what we are seeing is a lot of gentrification in our neighborhood in different forms. one is, tenants are being bought out by their existing landlords to make rook room for newer residents that can pay higher rental fees. the.

suffering from sanctions, we at the same time know that if there is a major explosion in the region our vital interests will be adversely affected and we may be bogged down in the larger regional war for as long as iraq and afghanistan have already been battle fields for us. so we do have legitimate interests in trying work this out if we can. i cat categorically say that we will. >> but as our friends say you can't trust iranians, yes you have to verify but they have lied in the past. >> first the question how unusual is lying in interstate relations? a lot of people lie, we have been accused of lying and i suspect the israelis lie too. what are we to infer for that?
unless the israelis say we are for peace, we this go for war? we should avoid a war if we can do it. it is in the interests of israel and it's to the interest of the united states and our interests in the nation and that's all for the good. >> you can watch sunday, 10:30 eastern 7:30 pacific time. >> washington navy yard the family of the shooting victim, mary de lorenzo knight had taken the first step towards filing the case. the family says the navy and the department of veterans affairs ignored warning signs about the shooter's mental health. 12 people died in the september shooting. all this week al jazeera is focusing on some of the innovative ways americans have been succeeding in tough economic times. we call them the champions of the economy. some american towns are trying
