donald trump has said a decision by facebook to suspend his social media account for two years, is an insult to the millions of people who voted for him in the us election. the tech giant says his account would only be reinstated, if his posts no longer pose a threat. the united nations says ethiopia faces a repeat of the devastating famine of 1984 — as a result of the conflict in the tigray region. crops, homes and clinics have been destroyed and aid agencies have been denied access — but the ethiopian government has brushed aside talk of a ceasefire. the prime minister of nepal has appealed to the international community to help his country tackle a second wave of covid—19. fewer than 3% of the population has been vaccinated and 4,000 people have died in the last month.

now on bbc news, click. this week, the giant coming to a city near you. a giant leap for disability, and willing rides on giant screens. hay, it is one of my favourite fests. we've been coming to the hay literary festival for quite a few years now, each time meeting amazing people who have written on fascinating topics.
1:32 am
every so often someone has stolen the show and stop our world spinning. can you see it? no, sorry. the town of hay on wye has more book shops than you can throw a thriller at, and the are usually packed with festivalgoers. and, after an enforced year online in 2020, the organisers are taking tentative steps back into town. as are we. welcome to click at hay, 2021. ok, i said tentative steps. anyway today we are going to be talking about al, which of course is very big, artificial insemination. next year, then, i promise! but in the meantime, some of hay 21's events are being streamed from the cinema round the back of richard booth�*s municipal book shop. later, we will bring you one of the most inspiring stories from the festival. first, i want to tell you a tall tale from the emerald isle, a very tall tale.
1:33 am
it's one of the most famous stories ever written. it is actually called travels into several nations of the world, in four parts, by lemuel gulliver, first a surgeon and then a captain of several ships. but you probably know it better as gulliver's travels. well, well, what have we got here? 300 years after the book was written, i'm following in the footsteps of its author, jonathan swift to the place that inspired him to write the novel in the first place. this is belvedere house in county westmeath, bang in the centre of ireland. so, the story goes that jonathan swift was standing about here looking across the lake where there was actually a place called lilliput, and he thought, "well, those people in the distance are really small," and the rest is history.
1:34 am
i said why isn't there a giant gulliver here in belvedere house? paddy dunning is a music manager and proprietor of several museums. he has rubbed shoulders with the likes of u2, rem and dame shirley bassey and now he wants to make some icons of his own. we designed a beautiful statue in wood, larch wood, and build a viewing tower from the house, and inside would be a heritage centre and museum dedicated, not just to jonathan swift but to the writers of the county. so that was where it started. it didn't end there, though, did it? so we came up with what is the concept now, which is a statue that has a matrix skin, and now we have just launched the giant project, which is the search for 21 sites, to build 21 giants around the world. people of the world, welcome to the giant.
1:35 am
the giant will be an interactive visitor attraction centre around a huge, human—shaped moving structure with cafes, restaurants, shops and a museum to boot, literally at the boot. the project is currently being masterminded at paddy's residential recording studio, grouse lodge, and it's caught the attention of eric frart, opera director, music producer movie—maker and all round creative, he wanted to make sure that the statue could represent absolutely anybody. one of the possibilities was that it is a gigantic statue, and it is androgynous and therefore, with the leds, not projected, but revealed upon it, it makes it much more spectacular and transformable rather than a static image. what kind of shape did you end up going for? essentially it is an amalgamation of the facial shape ofa man, ora male child. the human eye, it cheats.
1:36 am
the human eye fills in so much that's not there. if you give it a hint, it will fill in an awful lot and that is part of what is. is it big enough, do you think? bear in mind this is only a small scale concept model. it will be covered with millions and millions of pixels of addressable leds. that is all fed to controllers, and the more control you have over the leds, the greater spectral variations you can have with colour, with intensity. we managed to get this big, massive movement up to the sky, the winning poles, so that's
1:37 am
a big, massive movement. these are 60—80 foot long, and set up with great tones. if the giant is on the ground on top of the museum, - you would need an acre. interestingly, somebody. in new york has been on, and they can do it on airspace, land that is really interesting. i what does that mean? airspace means that they would put it on top - of an existing building. because of covidj a lot of the cities are looking at, how. are they going to get tourism back? how are they going to get people back| into their countries? - what is the draw going to be? we do think that the technology that we've got will be the future of statues, and there won't be just an image of one person. we think that images will change as society changes. in fact, the image that paddy thinks will draw most attention is the image of you. part of the visitor experience
1:38 am
will involve getting your whole body scanned and then thrown up onto the statue for all to see. the world's most awe—inspiring selfie. you can look up and you will become the giant. you are calling this the world's biggest selfie. it is the world's biggest selfie! there is nothing like it on the planet. it's so big, it's going to be gigantic. poor foolish little people. look what you've done. . with goliath ambitions, the giant company hopes to raise hundreds of millions of dollars and plans to roll out the first five by the end of this year. one thing is for sure. the scope of that task will be enormous. when i first heard about this project, i thought it was nuts. but then i got here and i saw the scale model of the head, and i started to understand how it could work, and
1:39 am
the technology needed to bring this to life is proven. it is just coloured leds. so maybe the main question is whether people will want it, but we are living in the century of the selfie, so who knows? i have a feeling they will. hello and welcome to the week in tech. it was the week that huawei wants this self developed operating system harmony 0s developed operating system harmony os in an attempt to challenge google�*s dominance in smartphone software. bill gates announced a push for $1 billion to accelerate green tech and ebay updated its terms of service meaning that sellers can no longer use paypal. and a cyber attack hit the world's largest meat supplier. computer networks at gbs were hacked, temporarily shutting down operations in australia, canada
1:40 am
and the us. the ransomware attack could lead to shortages of meat or raise prices for consumers. adrian has found itself crashing into the lava flow of a volcano. it happened in the south—west of iceland were drone by the gerry adams tried capturing the volcano which has been erupting since march. and finally i'm not at all creepy robot which copies you. scientist at columbia university in new york used deep learning to teach the robot, a there, to mimic the expressions are people around it, it can express anger, disgust, fear, joy, sadness and surprise and the aim of the technology is to build trust between humans and robotic workers and caregivers in real—world applications such as hospitals, schools and homes. of course, the machines are not of course, the machines are not softening us up before they become our robotic overlords! the hay festival is steeped in

hopefully next year we will be back for the full shebang, don't forget, you can get us on facebook, instagram and twitter, @bbcclick, thank you for watching and we will see you soon. hello. while most parts of the uk got to see sunshine on friday, for eastern areas of england, it was a very different story — relentless rain — that was how it looked in essex. parts of suffolk had 25mm, just about an inch of rain. you can see that working its way through on the radar picture, tied in with some very unsettled weather affecting much of western europe.

but that is clearing away from our shores, high pressure building in behind. so, that means a lot of dry weather through the weekend, although, this frontal system coming in from the west will bring something of a fly in the ointments, a few showers here and there out west on saturday, and then perhaps a little further east on sunday. this is how we kick off saturday morning, with friday's rain clearing away to the east, a bit of mist and murk around across parts of east anglia and the southeast first thing, but then for many, we will see some spells of sunshine through the day. but that front i showed you out west will start to introduce cloud and some showery rain through the afternoon into parts of cornwall, the western side of wales as well. come further east, we're into sunny skies, and certainly for east anglia and the southeast, a much warmer feel than we had on friday, 23 celsius the high in london. fine for much of northern england, but for northern ireland, we will see cloud and a few showers, in fact, some sharp showers into the afternoon, perhaps with the odd rumble of thunder. it's a similar story for the western side of scotland. but eastern scotland largely dry and pleasantly warm at 19 celsius under sunny skies in aberdeen. now, as we had through saturday

night, that weather front will stagger its way eastwards, still some outbreaks of rain along it. these are the temperatures as we start sunday, double digits for many, a little bit chilly across parts of eastern england and also across some parts of northern ireland. and then into sunday, this weather front will still be with us — a relatively weak affair — but still bringing some extra cloud and some outbreaks of showery rain to england and east wales. elsewhere, further north and west, northern ireland and scotland having the sunniest weather of the weekend, i think, on sunday. a little bit cooler across northwestern areas, but still quite warm to the southeast, 22—23 celsius. and as we look into the start of the new working week, high pressure will be building its way in, still potentially one or two showers around here and there and frontal systems bringing extra cloud into northern areas at times. but most places dry, some spells of sunshine, and if anything, it's going to turn a bit warmer.
