a question that's on many people's minds can somebody somewhere stand up and tell me and tell all of the members of this society what's a better situation is going to prevail in the post breaks the scenario that currently prevail a. difficult question for sure also coming up turkey's economy takes a turn for the worse we get an expert's analysis. of business now the latest talks failed yet again to deliver a concrete results the major sticking point now seems to be the results border issue between ireland and northern ireland now some thirty thousand people are currently crossing that invisible border every day for work goods they're all go back and forward but after break the republic of ireland would remain in the european union while northern ireland as part of the u.k. would have to exit britain may have to introduce
12:18 pm
a hard border with customs checks for goods people and services hampering business and hurting the economy and that is a huge worry for northern ireland's dairy farm. milk is northern ireland's most important agricultural product but uncertainty over what will happen when britain leaves the european union has left many farmers on edge especially those who currently trade with and travel freely to the republic of ireland which is staying in the e.u. because of the way the whole system set up there will be tariffs there traded on the european quality standards at the minute or standards one change will be as high as ever they are but. those are present barriers for creating this product in the future and the fact that we don't know is the difficult part in addition agricultural products from northern ireland are heavily subsidised it remains to be seen if the support will continue after breakfast. a major industrial

sector depends on. the luck patrick company purchases and processes six hundred million liters of milk from farmers on both sides of the border annually the supply chain is going to be massively disruptors there is going to be farmers who have no place to send their milk now because they're processing unit is on the other side of the border and the processor cannot bring that cross the border because he's going to have to pay a prohibited. in excess of fifty to seventy percent like patrick exports milk powder worldwide as well as roll milk to a baby food producer in the republic of ireland their main customer is china which insists on the e.u. quality label that may challenge these relationships. what is absent here is a clear vision for britain and for northern ireland in a post break that scenario can somebody somewhere stand up and tell me and tell
12:20 pm
all of the members of this society what better situation is going to prevail in the post breaks the scenario that currently prevails the face of northern ireland's agriculture sector life in the balance as farmers wait to see if a deal on the border question can be reached. well social media john facebook has announced a messaging app for children between six and twelve years old facebook messenger kids is controlled and monitored from a parent's account the company says they'll be no advertising and the only data collected will be the child's name some experts though believe facebook's intentions are good others are concerned that the company may have. and that is something i would like to look deeper into with danielle winter who joins me now in the studio danielle what exactly could be facebook's altieri of
12:21 pm
mulches or moniker i'm angry about this now i don't even have any kids isn't on boarding process basically getting kids used to facebook and social media at a young age and of course a lot of people are criticizing this move saying that facebook already doesn't have very good filters for taking bad content out of the system so how can we be sure that you know bad elements that say don't get into this app and contact your children now facebook say that they're going to monitor the use of this app in far more depth than look at reports of bad content in there very quickly but still facebook does a reputation problem on this front right now ok so there's a shadow of doubt i mean how can facebook how can anybody be sure that their kids it says here it's between six and twelve years old and using facebook anyway but the adult version well that's the thing that kids as young as six don't use facebook perhaps on that border age of you know ten eleven or twelve the sign of
12:22 pm
age for adult facebook sort of speak is thirteen years old so it is a little odd now if you see the pictures that we're showing there those are actors i mean we don't know if kids are actually going to enjoy this six years old i mean why can't they just go out and play football that's what i don't understand but anyway it's a problem market for facebook these thirteen year olds getting them encouraged to use this service rather than for example snapchat so basically facebook is trying to sort of used to it. so that when they reach that thirteen year old age that they recognize facebook and they say oh yeah i know that one of us and for facebook well i mean they get to harvest this audience that they can then report to thirteen years old it sounds really sinister but that's what facebook wants in the end they want data they want people signing up to their platform and contributing information. now kids date or six to twelve years old is not going to be harvested as part of this app but that is what facebook wants in the end and so they reap the
12:23 pm
rewards at thirteen years old and it does sound sinister but that's what a lot of people were saying i was just about to say i mean listening to you this really sounds sinister is it legal or it is absolutely legal but in a way the problem is more like it feels inevitable all the different big apps online including snapshot including you tube and so on have a so-called kids friendly version and so parents don't really know what to do they can't just tell their kids ok these are really cool apps but you just can't use them it's also about getting them a more gentle introduction to social media which they will probably use when they're older what's clear is it is a social media moral maze and i know i'm not going to be having kids any times daniel in town that's not quite sure what to make of that last statement of but thank you very much you're absolutely welcome for enlightening me about her facebook there and we're moving on to turkey which is a free market economy and turkish president. should businesses that he wants to
