central parts of africa, those seasonal rains, have shifted further south using heavy rain effect areas such as zambia as well as zimbabwe, pulling into northern areas of mozambique and it remains a very wet picture for south africa. we've got funded storms in johannesburg that's expected to last through to the weekend and it will be cloudy and windy in cape town at the weather. ah. during the debates, 90 percent of the world's refugees have come from of climate impacted country. the climate emergency is putting more pressure on cities across the world and amplify your voice. it's not really the future, it's now. this is not a lot. countries is probably the best we cannot lose or we know what to do. and we have the tools to do to get we must build all the stream on al jazeera. coded 19 is

a public health crisis that has been compounded by capitalism. ali rate navigates the big questions raised by the global pandemic powers. the system based on private ownership in the state of profit. so the world in a ton of capitalism is the pandemic back cause so much of the suffering exploited protected people or the profit episode. one of all hail the look down on out his era. oh, a welcome back. you're watching. i'll just time to recap on headline. the number of daily deaths from the current
9:32 pm
a virus in the u. k is nearly called rupert than just one day. there were a 172 deaths reported on tuesday up from 4 before monday, but it's too early to say whether that jump represents a trend or just statistical blip. the us says it will provide 7 global, a groups, an additional $580000000.00 to fight over 19, within the next hour president joe biden will announce plans to provide $500000003.00 rapid home fit for american head of the high and national election commission and libya says he's dissolving the electoral committee. them ending their work? elections were scheduled for december the 24th. let's get you more on cobra. 19 in the u. s. and biden's plans to counter the threat posed by the on the chrome very. and joining us from the fans, these is jennifer victor. she's a professor of political science at george mason university's shaw school of policy
9:33 pm
and government. good to have you with us. so we'll biden's initiative. the one is an ounce, you say, will it dampen that criticism that he didn't pay enough attention to other initiatives other than just vaccines? do you think perhaps, i mean, i think what we're seeing with the white house press release this morning and the address that biden has scheduled for today is really 2 things. one is a much more deliberate, full throated full throttled policy response from the executive branch to respond to coated. and this latest highly contagious wave of co that in the, on the kron variance. and then the 2nd thing i think we're seeing is the white house using it. it's public platform, you know, it's, it's using it's, it's messaging and all of the, the media and sort of control that it can take over the public agenda to draw people's attention to this issue. which i think is particularly notable. because,
9:34 pm
you know, social science research tells us that when political leads such as elected leaders, bring strong messages about appropriate things, way appropriate ways to respond to an emergency. and those are driven by evidence backed medicine. that is, that is the most effective way to help people coordinate a response to an emergency that that's what you'd think, cried but given the highly politicized times in the us. do you, how do you think republicans will respond to this? will this initiative become as politically divisive as vaccinations? that's a great question. so i guess we'll all need to perhaps turn into some conservative news media and see how this is getting recorded and reacted to their you know, as you stated by all accounts, the way that politics in the united states goes is. ready that partisans just react
9:35 pm
negatively to whatever their opposite is doing. in the case of public health matters, it's a little bit different, of course, with vaccines. it's become highly politicized. in this case, it's interesting that, you know, president biden is extensively relying on his executive branch power. he's talking about bringing out, fema and mobilizing forces to support states and using national resources that are at his disposal. he doesn't need any republicans. he doesn't need any of congress to help support him in doing that. and it, it shows that there really is quite a lot of capacity within the executive branch for him to do this stuff on, on his own, in a way that will hopefully be impactful. how do you think it'll impact his poll numbers? oh, that's a great question. so i mean, the poll numbers are, are very service static, right? so, right now people seem to be responding to, you know,
9:36 pm
concerns about gas prices. whole numbers seem to be very all throughout, you know, decades for decades now, a presidential pull names or numbers have been very responsive to gas prices. and so we're going through a gas price spike to some extent, in the u. s. right now, and there's not a ton of president can do about things like that. but i think, you know, as a, as a president, she's doing the things he can do, the tools that he had in his disposal to take action on this. he is now throwing them out there, whether or not it will impact the poll numbers in the end. but i think it's pretty hard to say, i think those are impacted by all sorts of complexities. but at least from an evidence base policy point of view, the stuff that he's announcing today is the type of thing that medical and public health, the experts have been sort of asking for for a little while now. so that seems positive. all right, jenna. think to that, thanks so much. thank you. took his lira has recovered some ground after the
9:37 pm
government introduced measures to ease the currency crisis, but the opposition says it's not enough by calling for immediate elections following the string of race and economic problems. president projects i voted on announced a series of steps including a promise to compensate favors for losses from inflation. he says, exporters will also be protected. is a little more than one because i get to that as of our learning is the deposit earnings of the turkish little assets and our people's bank are higher than the exchange rate increase. they will get this return. however, the exchange rate return exceeds the deposit earnings, the difference will be paid directly to our citizens. moreover, this income will be exempt from tax. that the markets reacted positively to that noun, spend in the lire rebounded against the dollar, but it is still far from recovering from its steady decline. over the past year, the drops sped up in september when under pressure of a motor tuan turkey central bank comp key interest rates by 5 percentage points.
9:38 pm
this was despite high inflation and take a look at the countries consumer price index over the past 12 months. it hit an annual rate of 21 percent in november. i'll just 0 resource out of that has more on how the turkish government is trying to rescue its currency. turkish lira has been losing value against a dollar dramatically over the past month, and people who were paid in at the local currency were selling turkish euro and $1000000000.00 as saving to avoid the losses. so this was further weakening the turkish lira gas, the u. s. t and the government has attempted several times to stop this full actuation and all the attempts so far. how failed, so the desperate times are call for desperate measures. president jeff, taper, avalon came up with a needy economy more though, and he got a bit of radical move. and he said that the losses are going to be compensated by
9:39 pm
the government. so it is given the guarantee to the deposit, which means if someone has $100.00 lire in his bank account and at the end of the month, if they're turkish, they're a loses value by 15 percent. and the government is going to add 15 lira to that account to compensate the, the loss. so this move is aiming to give an end to the ad bullet the de la position in the country, and also encourage people to save in turkish lira rather than the the, the, the, the u. s. d. so, but however many of the economists are seeing that these neither con, with model, is not sustainable because eventually it will cause more losses, as it will require no tremendous amount of turkish. they are in their market. and also for the central bank to print more and more turkish lira, which will lead the losses of the wedding and turkish lira and also cause the high
9:40 pm
inflation tens of thousands of people have marked the 20th anniversary of what's known as argentina's. great crisis in 2139 people were killed in a crackdown though a nationwide protests and riots after the government imposed measures to ease large scale debt of critic say 20 years on the situation in argentine or is no different. the government is in the midst of negotiations with the international monetary fund to restructure $44000000000.00 it owes to the global fund theresa bo reports from one osiris. o. this building housed at disco prior to the cove pandemic. but the loved down and argentine has already shaky economy, forced owner, so i can neil to adapt me. but i think if i look at what he has now filled the room with machines used to mind group to currencies. he's not only doing it for himself,
9:41 pm
but also for those who want to invest are busy, but i don't, we are good at elac and there what i, when you're in the beginning, it was very complicated and hidden. they sent us an email address and we checked was valid though no phone ups. now everyone wants to do it yet. we rent space and the handling of the machines and we have to separate the funds because of heat and energy required to operate. and it's proven a success. neil has expanded establishing mining farms all around when a site is there, located in restaurants, and on rooftops with a growing list of clients. crypto currencies have become away from people in argentina to protect themselves from endless economic crisis that include inflation and evaluation. and now capital control. this crypto currency farms use enormous amounts of electricity and they're profitable here in argentina because energy is relatively cheap if compared to other countries in the region. identity is trying
9:42 pm
to recover from the economic effects of this and demick. it's also about to close the 40000000000 debt agreement with the international monetary fund to establish the economy. but many fear the medicine could be worse than the disease. yet, i'm not, there is no agreement with the i m f without adjustments. so this protest is the beginning of a series of movements we will do to reject which ever agreement our country and our preston science for die m s. b. now it will be a resident where the for amanda says they're trying to close a deal that won't affect argentina's most vulnerable citizens. he also says an agreement is essential to get the economy out of the red economy. see a deal is necessary to give origin tina credibility in international market. so, but i think the political survival instinct, i believe,
9:43 pm
will make the government close a deal. argentine us micro economy and all the problems we face can resist and crisis. the agreements with the i m f is the only tool the government has to stabilize the economy and generate expectations, which is what the country needs ident tina has had over 20 agreements with the i m f. and people here have gotten used to living in crisis and that's why they have started to find a turn, a deal like crypto currency mining that they hope will protect them from the fluctuations and instability of the economy at home. that he said, well, i'll defeat one aside. if a diffract american priest has been sentenced to 12 years in prison for sexually abusing young girls in east timor, 84 year old richard dash back, abused them at his shelter for orphans and impoverished children. he was the frogged by the catholic church in 2018 thailand has announced its delaying the

9:45 pm
a high speed rail network in to southeast asia. as part of the belt and road initiative designed to bring chinese investment to neighboring countries. laos opened at high speed rail line in december. but huge cost of the project laying line through difficult to rein has left allow government with a debt to china. the critics say will be crippling. after the military coup in 2014, thailand's ruling generals quickly signed up to a chinese high speed rail project. but ty negotiate as bulk to the high interest rates and plans to construct a network that ran the length of the country were curtailed. but when you go into the details, i would say that that i, bureaucrats are very good at tardy lane projects. when, as our terms and not favorable cause civil servant government officer, i'm a government officer. we are, we have been taught from the beginning that we have to do everything to protect the interests of our country. those delays
9:46 pm
a clear to see while the project well underway, work has been slow, and thailand remains reliant on its old rolling stone. the elevated shack has been raised, but there is still more than 200 kilometers to go before the final destination on the gulf of thailand. and those delays go all the way down the line. and this is bank got brand new grand central station, low high speed trains arriving today. because the thai government hasn't yet decided whether it's going to use china's high speed track. and the crowds arriving at the new station on coming to catch a train. this is now the ty, capital central cove, at 19 vaccination center, with delays and the vaccine roll out this year. that's a process. the government's far more interested in keeping on track. tony chang l to 0 banker. now if you're a budding artist, you might like this story. how much would you pay for this black canvas museum and
9:47 pm
denmark gave an artist more than $84000.00 to create a piece. the frame was supposed to be filled with the cash. but then the artist sent it back empty and he kept the cash for himself. mohammed jump june reports from our book. there is now a publican legal dispute about whether the empty frame is mod not or just theft. just days before new cove at 19 restrictions forced the closure of museums across denmark, art enthusiasts, in the city of alberto, take a peek at pieces, questioning how happy we are with our jobs and why there never seem to be enough hours in the day. the exhibit is called work it out and museum director lassie anderson tells us one particular piece has created quite a stir. when you work with artists who they chelsor way we perceive the world. and you can you can never know what you get. the constant museum of modern art

9:49 pm
exhibiting a piece that some have called art, and others have labeled theft. when we meet haunting in his studio in another town, he explains how inspiration struck. do something about the an average stages in commer. why don't you do something about your own situation as well? so, so the next one? no, no, i'm gone to a fantastic piece for the show, harming, says, creating what the museum requested would have cost too much out of his own pocket. he considers the new piece a commentary on low wages and believes that makes it even more appropriate for the art show. oh, i asked if he plans to return the money. no, no, no, no, no, no. the no strictly. that's not gonna happen. back at the museum, we heard what visitors think. brilliant. if someone gave you a lot of money, allow skill to put them on a painting. wouldn't your bid centered?
