option for china and the united states was cooperation but there remains a fundamental areas of disagreement between these two sides especially in the area of forced technology transfer and the fact that the united states says that u.s. companies that want to do business here in china have to enter into fifty fifty joint venture arrangements and then hand over their know how the united states is saying that has to stop there is one area though i think where president xi jinping is unlikely to yield and that concerns his industrial policy known as made in china twenty twenty five this is his aim to make china a world leader in technologies of the future things like artificial intelligence and robotics but the united states is saying that china will do this by heavily subsidizing the companies involved and it says that has to stop president xi jinping has maintained that it won't. the iranian military says it will continue

8:25 pm
legacy of the drug wars want to look at this case off with that meaning it has been so intense and painful for the city and the country now that we see the change we are finally able to speak with out of fear and to deal with it. but overcoming escobar is not easy in maybe a neighborhood where he built houses for the poor still proudly showcases his name tourists and locals visit these grave on the outskirts of the city this family from mexico saved money for five years to travel to pay him home age when he was a good person who also how to do bad things otherwise he would have been killed earlier he helped many the monocle building where d.s. cobras lived was bombed in one thousand nine hundred eighteen left abandoned it's another symbol of escobar stime one does now want to get rid of the mayor announced it will demolish the building next february and turn it into a park to remember escobar victims and bring to an end what he calls
8:26 pm
a symbol of evil. the memory museum believes this is the right strategy. allowed to be put on ice and it's a tribute to the victims and all the people that defended legality because the violence and drug trafficking are still here they've changed and are less intense but we need to keep working on our culture so that it will always be less president twenty five years after escobar made a year in colombia have changed but the scars remain visible in the country is still figuring out how to close the door to the past i listen. next wednesday is a date set for the state funeral of george h.w. bush the forty first us president died in texas on friday at the age of ninety four his time at the white house from one thousand nine hundred ninety three was defined
8:27 pm
by the end of the cold war and the first gulf war his body will lie in state in the capitol for public viewing from monday. if at first you don't succeed try try again that's what one russian companies doing after a failed attempt in october and sending at three d. printer into space that. this is what three d. printing of living tissue looks like by anx made of living cells are used to put into thyroid gland this russian company was the first to successfully transplant one into a mouse the next step is to do the same for humans so this is like living material over there you know actually with us quality of the modern six hundred million people suffer from pyro disorders and there's a long waiting list for transplants printing human organs is considered a game changer in health care because it could save many lifes to be able to print complex tissues that are more similar to those in human bodies scientists say they
8:28 pm
need to send a three d. printer to space. in the kids or for space technology we used a so-called formative technology it looks like make a snowball where you make into snowball you make snowball not layer by layer actually but from different sides and that looks like a. true three days into college so that's a different technologies and for this type of technology we need to have a microgravity but the first attempt to send a printer to the international space station failed in october when a so you spacecraft crashed shortly after lounge for that moment of when you had to do that one more time. the printer and many hours of work were lost but it's hope there will be another opportunity soon. engineers had only one month to build this new three d. by your printer after the first one was destroyed and the recent rocket failure if
8:29 pm
the next launch should think it could be a breakthrough in printing human organs a revolutionary technique that could save many lives but also raises major ethical questions for example the potential to create super humans who can renew and even enhance their organs and live to a very old age and safety concerns if organs can be printed by anyone without medical expertise and how to regulate this if it's done in space this is a very interesting question and i think in outer space there is very difficult to to claim jurisdiction over activity in outer state space and especially asking these kinds of a experimental use they were to claim. research exceptions and so i will say it's now was still in blue sky and.
8:30 pm
scientists came to whatever it like at the moment a recent study by the european parliament concluded three d. printing techniques faced such deep technical and regulatory barriers that they might never happen the russian company is more optimistic because the co-founder predicts that in ten years' time the first printed organs will be successfully transplanted into humans stop fast and jazeera moscow. well again i'm fully back to bo with the headlines on al-jazeera the french president has held an emergency meeting with his cabinet following saturday's nationwide protest earlier emanuel michel assessed the damage caused by the violence in paris the protesters want him to resign over his economic reforms david chaytor has more from paris. we've just heard from the least say first of all let's make it clear that they did not discuss this most of the session bring in new state
