9:07 am
as a platform to challenge president aaron on the national level. that fill that will probably have to wait because the 1st going on will that has made it clear that he has a message and he has a mission to do for 5 years that's it local election and of course people are expecting that this local election may have some influence on the domestic politics but the opposition parties are sure particularly focusing on the problem of istanbul and we have already created the democratic platform and this democratic platform is 1st going to address the problems of istanbul certainly if any member of the had become a very important political figure in the entire dish politics and if he is his success it is sustainable and if you shows that there he is it she with a victory and he has achieved sustainable success in istanbul then this nation equipping in his career in other rounds ok you mentioned in the mobile is going to
9:08 am
address the problems of istanbul a 1st what are the big problems facing the financial capital of turkey. biggest problem actually is the transports and he has already made it clear that he is going to address this problem firstly but of course as far as the if a national issues are concerned as you have mentioned turkey is going through a very difficult economic situation and the economy is there has to be corrected and the stumble is certainly going to play a very important role because it is the financial center of the country i think this is probably going to have an effect on the future of turkey's economy as well stumble is the main locomotive it is the main driving force of turkish business there is finance and turkish economy so all the projects that you are always going
9:09 am

9:17 am
history there was heavy police protection on hand at the pride parade to prevent the violence the event has seen in the past. rainbows as far as the eye can see so far so familiar but this is no ordinary pride parade security is tight and police often seemingly outnumber participants. pride has come a long way since it began with a few dozen participants back in 2013 and it's attracting new and diverse groups of people. glory to ukraine glory to the heroes they cry. that is the official greeting of ukraine's armed forces and not something you expected to hear pride parade until now jarvis school i'm a soldier and. i was a volunteer in the dumb ass battalion. 2014 to 2016 were fighting on the front for

earlier this month this photo taken in greenland went absolutely viral that showed the scale of the arctic's melting ice sheets tensions in the regions rising temperatures as well and it's hard for behind this photo says he hopes it will trigger work commitment to protect the environment. mark stephens. his photo made such an impact. the image of water was taken on june 13th at the. north west greenland normally. the temperature is a few degrees below 0. it was much. it was 17 degrees celsius almost the highest temperature ever recorded very unusual because there were still snow on the sea the lake turned into melting water. and.
9:20 am
the picture is just a snapshot in time so it can't be taken as concrete evidence of climate change when he published it on twitter it provoked a lively debate for many it symbolizes the dangers of. others accused of faking the photo the climate researcher himself is just happy that finally attention has turned to the situation in the arctic. scientists have been warning that the region is heating up. a new study presented a stark forecast if greenhouse gas emissions are not reduced. dramatically by 2200. cities and islands under water. it's difficult to forecast 1000 years into the future but we can see the near future very clearly in the next 100 years the melting ice will cost sea levels to
9:21 am
rise by half a metre to a metre. greenland started very early and the ice sheet is melting on usually fast. and hopes his picture will stay in people's minds. maybe the picture hit a nerve it addresses something that other photos don't it shows a very warm day in the arctic. he says photos that are quickly forgotten or have little value but a memorable image could spur people into action to protect the environment for future generations. well the women's world cup continues in france and for now at least the hosts ounce of glory live on they beat brazil to one of the around 16 sunday joining me is dave brant from this force this morning dave tell us more about this incredible french victory i mean 1st of all it was
9:22 am
a fantastic game it was really one of the most enjoyable to watch of the world cup so far it just was crackling with intensity and the fan support for the home french side was truly amazing it was really impressive france were in control for most of the match but it didn't always come easy for them but despite that they pulled through 2 really truly impressive victory let's take a look. with 1st class home support behind them the french threats and right from the start in the house these early efforts from valerie go far was disallowed by the inevitable. we dislike of being judged to have headed the bull out of keep a barbarous arms. in the 2nd off some stellar work down the wing by kathy jackson gianni. a 2nd chance to back to open up and she said they did we perfect timing to put francois in front. of the guests found their way back into the top 11 minutes later though when did being years cross bounced around in the boss' giving tyee
9:23 am
said the chance to bring brazil live. and level is how the school stayed over 90 minutes it took until the 2nd half of extra time for dean only to fire a site into the crew to find them for a spy in the usa on friday. dave looking at that video and as you mentioned france in control for so much of that match but you know looking at the action on the pitch did you see any weaknesses on on the french side playing brazil yeah i mean 1st of all it's a knockout game against brazil so i don't think anybody could really expect it to be a walkover but that said i think you're absolutely right. france despite being in control and really dominating a lot of the match struggled to produce clear cut chances which is actually been a bit of a recurring theme for them throughout this tournament where they really look good technically they're awfully off in the vastly superior side but then when it comes
9:24 am
to that that last attacking move they struggle a little bit and because they're always possessing and pushing forward they look a bit vulnerable to counter attacks so i think heading into that next match against either the u.s. or spain in the quarter finals they're going to have to tighten that up because stronger teams are definitely going to be able to exploit that so have to watch ok especially the possibility of not countering the counterattack as a. seem elsewhere we saw england beating cameroon 3 nil but that game very controversial yeah it's a tough one it was honestly one of the more bizarre games i've ever seen and at times it was a bit hard to watch i think the video assistant referee really kind of overshadowed what was happening on in that damon on the field as we'll see here england 2nd goal was checked by the v.a.r. and eventually ruled to stand and cameron's player were inconsolable they were extremely upset about that decision and then in the 2nd half cameroon looked to
9:25 am
have scored a goal themselves but it was ruled marginally offside it's and once again cameron's players really couldn't believe it. and i think the players themselves they didn't handle these decisions well but i think it's also important to note that via our has truly been a disaster in this world cup it's been time after time that we're talking about officiating and we're talking about video review instead of what's actually happening on the field and it's really hard to watch sometimes the games don't have much rhythm because every marginal small decision is being checked for really long periods of time by the referees i don't really think that's what it's there for so what is artificial intelligence is role in the world cup right now is an issue that's emerging it's going to be looked at certainly by sports journalist dave browning thanks very much for coming up with us. we have some motor sports out of formula one racing lewis hamilton's dominance continues after he won the french gone very there have been 8 races so far this
9:26 am
season and he and teammate all terry bolt us have won all 8 of them. miss avies began this race in 1st and 2nd place and things were no different by the end reigning world champion lewis hamilton sealed his 4th win in a row but like haslett the 79th of his career the next target in his crosshairs because schumacher is record of 91 grand prix wins despite so much success how to remains as ambitious as ever. but is never going to hold and it's always such a challenge out there and i just love that they're trying to really find the edge and just bridging the gap and really you know top of this machine. it's been a season of frustration for the competition for all the driver charles the click the best of the wrist behind them assaidi came close to catching valtteri bottas in the latter stages but he couldn't quite manage it.
