10:17 am
critic, so fridays funding announcement doesn't address the key issue of global warming and is more about protecting tourism job. now, staying in australia, astronomers have discovered a celestial object, unlike any scene before the mysterious body releases a huge burst of energy like clockwork. every 18 minutes and 18 seconds. the lead researcher says there are other objects in the galaxy that switch on and off, but nothing with such frequency has ever been detected. now these kinds of objects were predicted to exist their cold, ultra long period magnetrons, but nobody ever expected to find one. we thought they would be rare or invisible just you'd never see it. but what we know is a strong this is never just one of anything. i mean when people fossil our son, they thought the son, the only son. and it took a little while to realize, oh, every single size also was fun. so i think it will be similar with this will be, i mean, no one at the moment. but we're probably going to find ball. and that will allow us
10:18 am
to explore this hidden population of neutron stars in our galaxy oral tentatively. it's an object we don't even, we'd like it could be something we've never even thought of. and then we'll be exploring this entirely new population of exotic phenomena. i don't know what the future holds, but it's very exciting. so the feeling was just incredible, right? i have been doing astronomy for about 10 years. i still covered over remnants radio galaxies, clusters of galaxies, all sorts of objects, but they were all things the astronomers had predicted would exist to found an entirely new possible object. it's like a dream come true. i think my 8 year old self would be trimmed a proud the 1st batch of a to come directly from china has arrived and toner. the $33.00 ton shipment includes food, drinking water, tents and radio equipment. but people on the island will have to wait for the aid to be distributed. cobit 19 prevention measures mean everything has to be
10:19 am
disinfected and quarantine for 3 days. poland is building a wall on its border with bella roofs, which was promised after a migrant crisis on the eastern flank last year. but there are doubts, it will do much to stop people entering the country illegally joined a whole reports now from cuz knitter in eastern poland once complete in the summer, poland wall will be a 186 kilometers long, almost half the length of the borderline with bell roofs, will it stop almost daily, attempt by refugees and migrants to make the illegal crossing? probably not according to a kurdish immigration lawyer who spoke to al jazeera, especially if, as he's widely alleged, they continue to get help from bella. russian border guards actually acting all is not, is not useful and they know that the guns can find and as a way, and they may be, as you know, as i told is that this helps them to cross the border. and of course,
10:20 am
they find another place. raga has put us in touch with. these are occurred as refugee who with his family, including young children, is among hundreds living in a warehouse on the bell russian side. i asked nisa if he was aware that poland is building a wall to keep people like him out. good. now. what can we do? we have to wait. we can go back to our country when not part of the political problem between belarus and poland. we just want to cross the border and get to safety in the european union. it's a familiar story told by desperate people fleeing circumstances they can no longer tolerate. they may be among them purely economic migrants as well, but poland makes little distinction, putting hundreds into asylum detention camps and simply pushing others back. the crisis that flared last autumn is now much reduced. thousands were allegedly lou to
10:21 am
the bellows border on the false promise of an easy crossing. it was both a cynical attempt by bella ruth, to destabilize parts of the e. u, and also a political opportunity for the polish government. bolan's wall being built at vast expense and partly through forests that are a unesco protected world. heritage site is a pretty extraordinary answer to what is now a fairly minimal problem. is it worth it to stop small numbers of people trying to cross the border from bella? luce, well, it is if you are a right wing populist government, this of the state, ron tv, news bulletins report, the broadly popular claim that poland is doing its bit to protect the external borders of the e. u. from uncontrolled migration, public opposition to the government's policies does exist. we just like to let people know that maybe not everyone in paula is against people coming here from
10:22 am
other parts of the world and we are here for them. but their voices barely heard. jonah hall al jazeera in eastern podium. the us president joe biden has confirmed. he'll nominate the 1st black woman to the u. s. supreme court. mr biden didn't say who the nominee would be, but he did pledge to an unsafe decision before the end of next month. he praised the outgoing justice stephen breyer for his 27 years of service. kimberly, how could reports now from washington? here today to express the nation's gratitude to justice stephen bryer. he's served on the nation's highest court for more than a quarter century presiding over some of its most controversial cases from abortion to the environment. but on thursday, you, as president joe biden announced the 83 year old supreme court justice steven brier was stepping down. i think he's a model public servant in
10:23 am
a time of great division in this country. briar was nominated to the court by democratic president bill clinton in 1994. as he reflected on his years on the bench briar concluded, the united states is a complicated nation. we know it's a kind of miracle when you sit there and see all those people in front of you, it people that are so different than what they think. and yet they've decided to help solve their major differences under law. briar plans to step down this summer when the supreme court completes its term, his replacement biden affirms, will fulfill a campaign pledge to make history person. i will nominate and be some of the extraordinary qualifications, character experience and integrity. and that person will be the 1st black woman ever nominated united states supreme court. so long overdue,
10:24 am
my biden says he's vetting candidates and we'll announce his nominee next month. one that won't alter the ideological makeup of the court. that currently leant conservative, but the decision to nominate a qualified black woman is deliberate, biden's, eager to please black voters whose support he relied on in the 2020 election. the timing is no accident with midterm elections for the u. s. congress coming up in november biden needs to deliver something to motivate voters. he needs a when, because are ready to be quite honest, ah, present by has not been able to get his agenda pathway to policing and reform the george lloyd bill. he's not been able to get any agenda pass with respect to voting rights. the new justice is expected to be younger and could sit on the court for decades. the senate has promised to take up biden's nomination quickly. president
10:25 am
biden wants a quick confirmation of his nominee. well, democrats still controlled the senate after congressional elections in november. that's no guarantee republicans could take control and block any future by denomination to the supreme court. kimberly hell kit al jazeera, the white house. now the global market for digital assets recorded enormous growth last year. collectivism traders spent $40000000000.00 on what are called non fungible tokens or m f t. that means they can't be directly replaced by something that may look exactly the same. they are digital tokens used to represent ownership of these unique items, such as digital art for a video clip, artists, brands, musicians, and others can create an f to ease and offer them for sale. the transactions are listed on a publicly verifiable digital data base is called a block chain. each and f t has a unique identification code that acts like
10:26 am
a certificate of authenticity. so even though others can see it, take a picture of it, or try to replicate it like an, an f t online. they won't be able to re sell it. for example, while many can own a print of the mona lisa, that can only ever be one original painting of the mona lisa. marco kiddos gutierrez, is a reporter with fortune magazine who's been writing about and f t's. he says the block chain doesn't make buying risk free with any industry cons, some of a fraud. and if you're buying or selling and you need to be careful of making sure that for instance, you're buying from an allow then take store, 3rd party platform where they sell energy. because there can be fake websites that look very similar. and also that you're buying from a verified seller once you're on an authentic website because there can be sellers that look very similar. are selling similar anesthesia to something that may be valued at millions of dollars,
10:27 am
but are not at the actual thing. and also need to make sure that you're avoiding you know fishing scans and giving away the password to your crypto. well it, because that's an easy way for all your energy or your crypto currency used to be drained. i think it's open out an entirely new market and people are doing more with digital art in order to get this to, to manually and have to try and as well creating mediums that we haven't seen before used extensively. and so i think it really is making a difference in our world in that way. now salvatore has led the way in adopting bitcoin, being the 1st country to take it on as legal tender last year. but mining the crypto currency requires huge amounts of energy. now the countries president has an ambitious plan to create a bit coin city using the power of a po keno. it's a big gamble, and people are skeptical, as john holeman now explains from the capital. it was the 1st country in the world tease bitcoin as a national currency. now,
10:28 am
salvatore's poised to take its gamble further. the president in a fi whitfield party announced that he's planning a whole city based on the crypto currency. what is rico city gonna include? and is gonna include everything, residential areas, commercial area services, but will have 0 income tax 0, capital gains tax. so you know, in both you make all the money you want to. we're fine because this is a fully, fully ecological city. that's work that works. and it's energized by able quino pick coin, city shaped like a symbol of the crypto currency itself. it will run with geothermal electricity from the nearby volcano, which will also be used to generate more bit coins. it's an invest his fantasy, but there are worries. it's little more than that. what, why is that? why the doubts about why a lot of other things because there is now 30 at this point,
10:29 am
but i can tell kenya which is ample mellow, canine. the government has claim will be the one they'll be using mining. actually it allows for that kind in jail taylor exploitation. her associations been critical of president bush kelly, but many big coin as a rule. so skeptical. nobody seen any detail plans, but the government still ploughing ahead planning. so $1000000000.00 worth is so called big coin bonds, half of which would be used for the city's infrastructure. the other half will be used to buy a movie coins. the hope is that their value goes up and helps pay off some of el salvador, large national debt. some of those finances are looking to rosie. it's been running up the big budget deficit has payments looming. been trying to negotiate a load with international monetary fun. but so far that hasn't come for yet, hoping the big coin volatile currency,
10:30 am
which the i m f doesn't approve of the country using will help solve the debt problems, right? presents and obvious gamble. meanwhile, l, so those 1st bitcoin experiment using the crypto currencies, legal tender along with the dollar continues. government allies say it's doing great. but in 4 months, a big point over 4000000 people have become digitalized. and the grab, the vast majority of them demand bank accounts, and that's over 2 thirds of the population. the question is, how many of those $4000000.00 people just use the government's bitcoin up once to get out the $30.00 worth of the crypto currency given away for free? who knows? no public stuts are available. what is known as the people who struggle to use the app and the big coin cash points from the star single. i've been trying to get into my account for 2 weeks and i can't do it. it's active and registered and i've been calling support. but they haven't been able to search it for me. the governance.
