given out for free starting next week. major airlines have cancelled or rescheduled flight to the us because of concerns 5 g mobile services could disrupt their navigation systems. there are fears 5 g signals could impact radio ultimate hers which measure planes height in the sky and is crucial during bad weather. will in response a t and t and the rise and said they would pause the rollout near key airports for some carriers that just wasn't enough. let's fix a roger chang who's the executive editor of seen that news. that's an online technology and consumer electronics website. he's joining us by skype from new york . hi there. thanks for speaking to us on al jazeera. so i am taking a look at your website. no surprise at this is one of your top stories on the front page of your website. i mean, what do you make the latest twist and turn know that a tv and verizon are saying, well, okay, we're going to delays switching on the 5 g mobile network. where does this go to
9:33 pm
next? it's really unclear. at this point. there's a lot of open ended questions, you know, we thought a lot as have been settled 2 weeks ago. the carriers had come to an agreement with the airlines that will get a delay there now for 2 weeks to do some further testing. and they, they thought that i had settled any potential objections or future objections. that's obviously not the case of the airlines or what we had objecting to the potential for interference between their networks and some the equivalent planes. so right now it's sort of in limbo for, for the carriers. they have turned on the upgraded version or 5 network elsewhere. but when it comes to areas around the airport, they've basically hit pause. and there really is no telling when they'll be able to resume the roll out, or if they actually end up rolling out the network in or near those airports. let me ask you this because 5 g has been rolled out and other countries. so why?
9:34 pm
why is there such concern over at a near airports in the us? there are a lot of questions about that, and frankly, you know, i've taught 18 variety and they are throw their hands up. they're not entirely sure . as you know, 5 g, a particular, this is flavor 5, uses the specific bands of radio airwaves that the airline industry believes is a potential interference issue that has been in use elsewhere. now we've, we've seen from other comments from the airlines, emerett airlines references noted that the power usage might be higher than high in the us and it is elsewhere. we're still kind of looking into what are houses appointments are different than they are elsewhere. but you know that the carriers and add the s u c, notably the federal communications commission to have a set time and time again that the, the service doesn't pose a risk to airlines. but, you know, there's obviously a lot of nerves and this is high stakes. so i think everyone is kind of taking
9:35 pm
a pause and trying to get a little bit more. busy data on information on just one of this risk actually is. so is that ultimately down to the question of if it's a fight over who has precedence over the skies, whether it's the airlines or telecommunications companies at this point, i wouldn't quite put it that dramatically. i think the question is whether or not the i think it's finding a way for both sides coexist and i don't think it's necessarily going to be black and white. it's not necessarily the airlines done dummy, the, you know, the skies or the telecommunication copied, there will be some sort compromise made. it's just unclear. i think both sides are still trying to figure out what the other wants. i would say le airlines ideally would just not have this, that they would prefer to not have the spectrum deployed at all. the carriers, which i spent about $80000000000.00 on this, that probably would disagree. so there's, there's probably gonna be some sort compromise down the middle. but at this point, i think everyone's are taking a cautious approach. all right,
9:36 pm
thank you so much. roger trying for speaking to us from your while a former colombian presidential candidate was kidnapped and held by foreign rebels for 6 years as an ounce. she's running again. ingram better cor, spoke to al jazeera about her vision for columbia future. all the sandra pet. she's joining us from columbia capital bogo ton. sandra, you're the one that spoke to best on core. what does she have to say? yes, we just sat down with her and essentially we want to understand why she decided to run out there saying until the beginning of december that she had no intention to do it, at least in this election, she has recently moved back to columbia after 15 years in france, following her abduction and there is no doubt that she brings celebrity power, star power name recognition to a sensory correlation that has so far suffered him and the poles were none of the
9:37 pm
candidates have been able to truly break through. and at a time when columbia and. a they call them in the next day. it is quite divided and the most extreme options seems to be front and center seems to be gaining, gaining popularity among colombians. i really believe the change for columbia is in the center. it's not in the extremes. we are fed up with extremes. the extremes are the same for me. extreme right extreme left. it's the same thing. it's violence, it's corruption. we the center. we were together. we want to liberate colombia from corruption and we want to build another world for the 3rd millennium, a green world, the humane world. well 1st because i'm a woman and we have another vision. war is a man. thing. woman is about the conciliation piece. building that together, giving opportunities 2nd opportunity. others 1st being a woman because one of our main goals is to eradicate drug trafficking. so it means
9:38 pm
that we have to build a regional policy against drugs and it comes with legalizing or depend lising that can, that can some showing of, of drugs. we can't do it alone for many big goals. they're obviously have asked how to do that. so if you ask pretty much every content there for the next election here in columbia, they will tell you that they want to fight corruption. that this is the main issue and everybody is fine here. but i asked her if she had some more concrete proposals . she offered to the 1st one, and she said that if she will become the president, she will appoint a special anti corruptions are connected to the office of the presidency. that will be a sort of, i will do surveillance of all the ministries and all the other sectors of the government. then she also said that she believes in the power of the digital world,
9:39 pm
and that as she's hoping to create, if she becomes president, an app that colombians can use to denounce case is up corruption directly to the office of the president. we're going to have to see if colombians will indeed pick up on these proposals and that beyond the, her name recognition of this will translate them both 1st and the primaries in march and eventually and the presidential elections. next me thank you so much on sandra and patsy reporting from bogo top a palestinian family living an occupied east. jerusalem has lost their fight to stop is really policed amount like demolishing their home family 15 had threatened to blow up the property of forced from the chef started off neighborhood hundreds of other palestinians. there also faced eviction despite protest by activists. done international criticism of it's really policy out there is harry faucet has more from the demolition site. was around 3 o'clock in the morning on
9:40 pm
