12:38 am
israeli public is concerned, mainstream is ready, political opinion. it does pretty much accord with what natalie been at the prime minister. there was saying that this is seen as pretty vital israeli territory on a security level. it is a lot less controversial as well than such supplement building inside the occupied west bank where you have to make inroads into what could be a future palestinian state with until velocity is a live peace negotiation process going on. and so it is an opportunity for a right wing pro settlement is ready, prime minister to make a big settlement announcement without potentially some of the audio that could come in way internationally. if he made some proposals within the west bank, colin's president has vito, the controversial media ownership bill seen as a threat to freedom of speech. it had recently passed in parliament. government accused of trying to use the media law to silence the u. s. owned news channel,

12:41 am
to witness transcripts as well as office supplies, as they resumed their work. on monday. the british socialite is accused of recruiting and grooming 14 edge girls for convicted sex offender jeffrey epstein. the 60 year old has pleaded not guilty maxwell faces of the 70 years in prison. gabriel is on this following the trial in new york. well, it appears that the jury is taking this case very seriously and also taking the defense argument seriously as well. most legal analysts will tell you the longer a jury deliberates, the better it is for the defense. that's a general consensus. the bottom line is though, that nobody knows what is happening inside that jury deliberation room in this federal court house behind me in lower manhattan. only the jurors that are in that room. this is the 3rd full day of deliberations. the jury deliberated in total about 21 hours. now it's a very long time. and on monday,
12:42 am
a signal to the judge that they do need more time. they asked for transcripts of a couple of different people that testified. they also asked the judge to further define what encasement means, in a legal term. several of the charges against un maxwell referred to enticement. and they also asked for some sticky notes of different colors, insinuating that they're really going through these charges and trying to hammer out some sort of conclusion here. the bottom line is, this is a difficult case, difficult charges as well. 6 different charges that the jury has to come to some consensus on, but the big one is the 6th one. that is a sex trafficking of miners which carries up to 40 years in prison, add it all up and all 6 charges are up to 70 years. in prison,
12:43 am
bottom line though is galen maxwell is in a holding cell in this court house behind me. and she is waiting, just like everyone else for the jury to reach some sort of verdict. prostitution is a multi $1000000000.00 industry in spain that's been legal for more than a quarter of a century. but now the prime minister wants to change the law. natasha the name reports now from lodge on karen near the french border home to some of the country's biggest sex clubs. going to show you my stuff. a passion for paul dancing. seduced julia into joining the sex industry. i fell asleep when i do it. she earns her living as a dancer and prostitute at club paradise. it's near spain's border with france at it's touted as the largest brothel in europe. the 33 year old romanian immigrant says she's proud of what she's been able to do with the money she makes.
12:44 am
yet she asked to conceal her identity because she knows society may not share her mind set. she's also studying and planning for a life beyond prostitution. my life with my choice. i never know nothing that i won't want to do. they still give me a home opportunity to pay my study to help my family and to have a good life. for me, this won't give me a lot, many things that the normal job and i was was normal and i was every day and i didn't have only to pay rent and the food and nothing else. so for me they, i have a lot thinks. so i am proud prostitution was decriminalized in spain 26 years ago . law inforcement approach has been to punish the pimps, not the prostitutes. now, spain's prime minister is pushing to pass a law,
12:45 am
which would penalize not only pimps, but any middle men who profit from prostitution. this would shut down brothels, since prostitutes pay to rent rooms. that's all i proceed to see on will have there . in the case of prostitution, the majority are undocumented migrants in spain. the government should ensure the rights of migrants here and everywhere in the world. but prostitution can be understood only us an issue of livelihood, which it is, but is also an institution of equality and an institution of patriarchy. opponents of prostitution also point to the intersection with sex trafficking. last year, spanish police rescued $160.00 victims and $32.00 sex traffickers were convicted. however, those figures likely don't represent the full picture in a billions of dollars a year industry. the manager of club paradise says government regulation would combat exploitation and improve working conditions for women. she said it will era,
12:46 am
but if this was regulated, it could be controlled. the ladies who are working here would also have rights, and they should have the rights that any working person has visual. that would be something feasible. i'm good for everyone really to have that security whilst working yet. but if the proposed law banning prostitution passes next year, it could wipe out the livelihoods of thousands of women in the sex industry. whether it's the law getting older or wanting to start. a family, julia says for her, this life has always had an expiration date. natasha name l. jazeera la john kara space coming up on al jazeera. i'm fill lavelle and rural texas, which suddenly finds itself as one of the top big coin destinations in the well. but why all the miners heading, hey, i find out more later. i'm than sports. more games are postponed than the english premier league use a coven?

12:50 am
a huge number of bitcoin miners who have been forced to find a new ho recently, because china found crypto mining earlier this year, i immediately decided to go to other countries leaving thousands of bitcoin. companies like pooling to get out quickly. so they went west, they're building here because have the reckless market or you can consume also, or sell electricity as you want. jessica connected to the great. so to lisa, totally open free market. criptos like cat nip to politicians. hep senator. ted cruz governor. greg abbott. can't get enough of it, but even they can't control the weather. massive storms in february let a huge outages, millions, wet weeks without power. the grid here is creaking already. that's a lot of heat that we have to get of these buildings that these servers are located in. so there's a large air conditioning load that is also associated with the mining process. and it's getting busy at texas is bit coiling mining alone on cost to use twice the
12:51 am
yearly power of the entire city of austin soon globally, crypto hunting using more energy than all of our gen, tina. we're at this point in life where there's a lot of criticism about and if you think this isn't low energy, we're also the ones that are using power in the middle. the night when people have turned their power off, the generators remain more profitable. allow them to keep running so that when you're home or your business or the hospital needs a different power, it's already there, rockdale, this is a success story. even the mer mining crypto at home as he takes beds on space. i have one last week. i've got a $100000000.00 and they just come in and start and at that are money to build with where industry left bit coins are, right. the lowest are state a fixed off for crypto minus fed lavelle al jazeera rockdale, texas. hey, tend to get all the sport now here. sandy. thank you so much, barbara. well, a record 103 premier league players and staff of tested positive for cove at 19 in
12:52 am
the past 7 days. 15 games have already been postponed this month. liverpool manager at yoga club st coaches are doing all they can to protect the place you will not stop discussing. because if we don't discuss it, is just face like this, or maybe it's phase anyway like this, but they're still, it's the place need help and help needs to come from from allah, from, from other areas. so that means in this case, now the cultures are the closest to the players and b, b have to deal with all these kind of things. well, if all are set to play less there on tuesday, the impacts of curve 19 all the great set you to the hectic schedule over the christmas period. the lester, it will be their 2nd game in 3 days. it's a ridiculous schedule that we all know that the space you you see over these last numbers of years. it's no pleasure and fully recovered there for 72 hours after a game to for us to be player. and like you say on tuesday against a, you know,
12:53 am
against liverpool, it's, that is ridiculous. however we, we have to play the game. while manchester united all playing there, we're taking on new castle. it said their 1st game in more than 2 weeks, sir, for christiane or an allies team following a covert outbreak within their squad, with full time approaching that gain level at $11.00. well, we've been speaking to football, writes at gavin house, and he says, commercial considerations are playing a big role in the premier league handling of the pandemic. it's not clear that play the teams are being treated equally, some teams. so having that game called off, others having to play the games. others are having to play with. we can backward stuff because their medical stuff has tested positive, all the coaching stuff and supposed to, it's not just about the players. so it's not a level playing field and some clubs feel that they are being treated unfairly. the logical thing to do would be to have a week or 2 week breaker to let the infections go through the squads and through
12:54 am
the club training grounds. and then start again in 2 weeks time, but unfortunately, money to takes everything in the premier league. the games throughout the christmas period have to be played for to be contract. people failed. so the show must go on . and that means that the unfortunate infections will carry on as well. and there isn't this way out of this crisis at the moment, manageable is unique in europe and carried on playing through the christian faith. the fact is the busiest period of the season, whereas in italy, in spain, and france and germany there on a break and their players are actually on holiday at the moment so they will have to find some. so i'm in the schedules later in the season and it means very crowded, fixed list in the 2nd half of the season to, to catch up. now we'll cut when a killing him back pay says he's against staging the tournament every 2 years. the french truck has been talking at the globe soccer awards, and due by the world cup is currently held every 4 years,
12:55 am
but fif president johnny in fancy, you know, he's aiming to shake up the global football calendar. in my opinion, is the work up is the work of it's a spatial thing because is it's something every 4 years. you know, if you want to keep that spatial and you saw like, like i talk about either people talk about a, about the best thing, the best competition in the world. if you are every 2 years, it can be thought to be normal to play, walk up, and i want to say it does no normal. that's something amazing something maybe you play one time in your life. well, i'll start, as chris says, look to be heading towards a convincing series. when against england, the tourists suffer. the yes, another bass in collapse there on the brink of a 3rd strike defeat. the start of by on day 2 in melbourne has to be delayed with england needing to do coven 19 tests. was after an outbreak among their support staff or was it for jimmy anderson looks who have got england back in the game.
12:56 am
helped restrict the home to a 1st lead of 82 with australia for 67. but in the final, our australian bowl is taking over. they reduced england to 31 before it means jerry side will resume, still trailing by 51 runs straightly going when they will sail the city. so we knew that that last 12 i was going to be tough with, with enable but even even so it's hard to lose for were cases really disappointing . now, so the, the spell from stark and come means was with outstanding. but that's what you expect that that will class bonus that then if in test cricket for, for many, many years. well the whole england scored under went further covered 19 tests of the close of play. all those results have come back negative. so day 3, the test will go ahead and melbourne the plane groups. i mean that coming in contact on the fails that what everyone is now on, on, on, on jaila, everyone is being extra cautious. and ultimately, it's
12:57 am
a common sense for making sure that people are socially distancing. the shell is bringing in some pre measures to help avoid further disruption. after 3 more games were called off to, to covet 19 so called taxi squads being re introduced. these are made of 6 reserve players who travel in practice with teams and can replace reckless who are ruled out due to current a virus. the regular season was due to resume today, but the restart is being pushed back to choose. they 67 games postpone so far this season. i think as players, the most frustrating part is seeing what other sports leads are doing. and it seems as if we're heading the opposite direction lot. so it's you know, i think it's a little confusing for us. okay, this is paula scott backs above or inland. and the thank you very much and that is a for this news. our stay with us and we'll be back in just
