down. on shaking things up and start ups are embracing the trend towards known alcoholic beverages. leave is no time paid ferguson welcome. it's the 1st criminal settlement in goldman sachs's history as a public company today the bank's malaysian subsidiary has pleaded guilty to bribery for its role in a major money laundering scandal at malaysia's state investment fund the guilty plea is part of a $2900000000.00 settlement with u.s. regulators who say goldman played a central role in the theft of money from the fund of knowledge an institutional failure is goldman's board of directors has decided to cut pay and bonuses for several executives including this man the current c.e.o. david solomon those directly involved in the scandal will also have to pay back millions of dollars prosecutors in malaysia the u.s.

a bond sales organized by goldman sachs and able to associates a former malaysian prime minister razak to steal billions of dollars from the one the m.t.d. fund that was supposed to support malaysia's economic growth so what are we to make of all of this let's leave financial correspondent yes cos he's at goldman sachs of global headquarters in new york hi ends just how badly has this scandal affected goldman sachs its reputation. in general it's a huge and costly scandal already in july goldman agreed to pay $2.00 and a half $1000000000.00 to the government of malaysia so now we have another almost $3000000000.00 on top of that interestingly enough the stock actually did trade to the upside on thursday and there's a good reason for that because it was not goldman the parent company pleading
11:19 pm
guilty but it was this of sideris from malaysia and that means that goldman itself probably gets away was no criminal charges and that is important because that way goldman will be able to still to do business with some big institutional clients those clients might not have been allowed to do business with goldman if the parent company actually would have to plead guilty itself still in that regard it is a bit of a relief of at least for the parent company goldman sachs for sure and that might explain as well why we're not feeling too much market reaction to this story when our investor i think 5 in about today though yes. well we've seen a huge wave of earnings coming out all week long and that was especially also true for this thursday session coca-cola for example even if revenue dropped in comparison to last year's quarter but their earnings came in better than expected

before you come the start of. i think it's important that our city centers remain livable and prosperous. that we do something to stop stores from drying out. and. that we effectively help we tailors whose existence is threatened by the digitalisation and online shops. and. business associations are demanding more aid from the government the german events industry has been particularly badly hit by the pandemic the industry which includes trade fairs congresses and cultural and sporting events accounts for nearly one 6th of german economic output its business group estimates. half of germany's tourism revenue is linked to events. we've had an 80 to 100 percent slump in sales for the past 8 months and probably for at least another 6 to 8 months from i'm no company can cope with that alone.

now from curfews to alcohol bonds authorities around the world are taking action to prevent the spread of the corona virus bars in particular are seen as a major breeding ground for the infection because alcohol tends to make people forget to observe the social distancing rules but what about it dr doris cities around the world are embracing the concept alexa meier reports from berlin. the 0 leak bar is located in one of berlin's famous party districts what's special here all the drinks are nonalcoholic you can get beer and wine as well as novelty cocktails like 06 famous carrot cake these days you can find bars like this in london dublin and new york but in germany 0 lake is one of a kind. some visitors end up here by chance others come here on purpose. i think it improves the atmosphere when there's no alcohol in play and they enjoy
11:25 pm
that i can go out and have a nice evening during the week every once relaxed but there's still clear isabel. you know. we have some very young guests who are involved in the startup scene or artists who are in the middle of composing some new work of people who need to maintain a clear head. and get in the wine with a 0 leak bar comes from another berlin startup called cologne annoyed since 2018 they've been selling wine made by premium vintners in the german state of bought and written back 1st philip and his partner experiment with various blends and then the alcohol is removed from the coup de. local wineries produce the product on a large scale a bottle goes for between $10.16 euro. more and more people in europe are turning to alcohol free alternatives that's what our

11:27 pm
a drink but the bar hasn't made a profit yet the same can be said for cologne the north and east drinks still there following their hunch that more and more people will be drinking their alcohol free beverages in the future. they think branding is everything when it comes to attracting investment which is why one canadian town has decided to change its name the 10 of us best stuff was named after the world's largest mine of the material once it was found to be highly carcinogenic the mind closed down and leaving the title with a name that with keeping business away some 7 times the people took part in the vote the new name the charming founding violet a soft or valley of the spring. sensibility that's all for me thanks for watching.

11:32 pm
condé has been in power since 2010 instead of. week all of guinea chose the union of democratic forces of guinea that's what guinea wants if the us is not elected guinea will not be calm. but guinea is already far from calm. the current bout of violence started the day after the election when opposition candidate below declared himself the winner of the ballot before the release of official results. i am like tourists and this election in the 1st round was. but it was too soon to celebrate over the last few days the election commission has made official results available as they come in from constituencies and so far they are not confirming the victory that d.l.
11:33 pm
all claim to was his. the man in the lead is alpha condé the man whose lead guinea for the past 10 years. the opposition is crying foul and has been venting their anger on the streets with deadly consequences says gainey security minister. or cook or are going to be full bodies in conakry full bodies of gunshot victims in the morgues of dunker and it must be in hospitals one death from a stab wound deaths from firearms in. addition to. those weren't the only victims of guinea's post-election violence and there are fears they will be more. on wednesday night d.l. all called in his supporters to continue their fight in a twitter video posted from home. you were already fighting heroically in conakry and across the country despite savage repression and despite arrests and intimidation this fight is heroic and it will in ever to be victorious.
11:34 pm
the country now awaits the final results of the election but by the looks of the last few days it's unlikely they'll resolve the tension. let's go over to africa correspondent frank moloney he is in a cost hi fred it's good to see you is some kind of a power sharing compromise pools of all in guinea i say this because when we've had similar instances in other parts the continent that's what it's come down to is it possible in guinea. chris you know the. main rival is in guinea that is the comment president and. their opposition. to this is this time there that actually there are contests. in the last 2 times there have been nothing like these talking about. so this time no one knows where
11:35 pm
the go up to but what we know is that the incumbent president has said that in case he wins the election he's willing to talk with the opposition ok the result is still in contention but what they any independent election observers fred and and what have they said. so far the african union because that's the regional book of west africa they have already declared that the voting process was transplanted something that has been disputed by the opposition in the. and you have to know that the opposition. himself has declared a winner even before the electoral commission announces the results so i dis moment though because of us said the election process was transpired but the people
11:36 pm
in guinea contest narrative. ok fred just just coming back to these 2 men contending for this presidency and as you write so you told us it's the 3rd time they're having a go at it. they've both got profiles in guinea. the incumbent president alpha condé is he more old then and now the old man team to power. well that seems to be depart on especially in the west africa. region where current or you see what is happening in the course they have had to change the constitution so that the incumbent president can run for. them the same thing happens in guinea where he has actually been in power for one or 2 times for 10 years he is has forced to change the constitution so that he can run for another
11:37 pm
time but people have to know that this guy cannot be in the same basket as other people who have been in power for 2 decades even for decades has just been in power for all of 2 times 10 years but then the change of the constitution it's of raises questions about his motives and he's also is very questionable he's 82 years almost. afraid what about his main challenger at delhi india he is no new come achieve political power is he. yes he's very very you know me has occupied several minutes so your poised and president. that he's some couple of years ago he has been also the prime minister he's very a very experienced politician and he has also must have support from from the
11:38 pm
community which is really one of the biggest. it's a new group in so he has most of support he has experience but of course he's facing a very strong incumbent president afraid when can we expect the final official results from this election. yet the final fisher results are expected in 8 days that means that after the provision or results have been announced then the candidates have at least 8 days to file a petition in supreme court just in case they have they have told us they placed in there and then the posters on the call it would declare the final results but if any candidate gets below 50 then there will be a 2nd a 2nd run which is should do it on 24th of november right that's in lagos for us
11:39 pm
thank you frank. now it's been 10 years since kenya dispatched its soldiers to somalia in an operation against the al qaeda linked terror group al shabaab in response to the increased violence the kenyan government launched operation born in september 2015 to oust the slightest of that operation has expanded across the dense boni forest in the lab on the border with somalia as state of used interest smoked reports it was supposed to last 2 months but now while the military operation on to news it is ordinary people such as beekeepers whose lives have been caught in the crossfire. we are on the way to care and we've really using this big boy to get there because
11:40 pm
their odds are truly dangerous as they're planning to be but i induced by the terrorist group al shabaab for now the ocean remains the only one of transport. breakfast to the family most mornings stocked like these sort of watery but well that hasn't changed is livelihood. would depend on the forest for bees since our forefathers we went into the forest came back living with honey and so do we do. however i'm going military operation just 6 kilometers away from sir was religion now stops him from venturing into the forest or going to his beehives meaning risking his life he has kept a few years house despite the dangers it brings to his family. when you mean he 1st became unbearable and the village is also dangerous they can in military rule be waiting 6 kilometers into the forest when they see they'd ask who
11:41 pm
did unity in there who do bring food. when you hear the helicopters you. know where my supposed to leave in fear making leave you know why i'm scared but i have to make a living for these children. 10 years ago kenya launched operations against al shabaab these war has now come to soar over the last. one of the world. is a problem for us but also is the killer in libya our own people they don't want us to go into the forest and that is how we lost all our behaviors and now lives of change for the worst. security experts believe the country's fight with al shabaab has hit those people most vulnerable to radicalization and retaliatory attacks in their quest to pacify bonny forest and to flush out the pond sergeant walk with their local communities perhaps that is where the government needs to
11:42 pm
invest a lot more resources in order to win the hearts and minds of these people so rove is trying to find other ways to feed his family farming on small plots of land. no i depend on the farm and fish but my family's not big enough that i would have as i want to sell the produce people are afraid of coming here and they ask you is it money forest and they all run away they don't want anything to do with us. an impossible choice faced by one family it's echoed by an entire community struggling to provide for their loved ones. and that is the finale. of the story. on forward slash africa we're also on facebook and on twitter today we'll leave you with. egypt of a new environmentally friendly electric bus service being inaugurated for visitors

11:45 pm
english countryside that surrounds him. welcome. culture streaming services are burning up the historical series seem to be particularly popular now netflix is launching its 1st german historical series barbarians which takes place in na in a day when the romans occupied almost half of europe so the genetic tribes are trying to stop the rocket part b. of a half what's the potential for epic battles love and hate but trail and loyalty. so i mean there's roman empire at the height of its power half of it is under. roman general virus is governor of the northern provinces at his side. the leader of a division of german manik troops serving the romans. returning
11:46 pm
with roman forces minister meets his father a tribal chief again as a child i mean yes was taken as a hostage to rome where he became a roman citizen would come on the tightness. in. my 4. crisis act and now on scope sees parallels with the situation of refugees today. and feel i think refugees have to struggle with the same things that armenia struggled with not knowing how to fit in like where do i belong do i belong. how much of my original culture can i retain. and how much is it accepted in the new culture and so on. this story is told entirely from the perspective of the geminid tribes they resent the high tribute payments demanded by the romans the conflict is given an extra edge due to
11:47 pm
the language barrier the moment speaking latin. oh mother but i was there no known producer any sort of. because of the fact that. there were no one up call sounds like it's a touch of culture as they don't understand each other we use this to develop the plot a few characters he speak both languages suddenly have much more power and control over the situation. there are misunderstandings. it was a key moment when we decided to incorporate this into the narrative. in china in the sort of start. adding to armenia says internal conflict he is also the foster child of roman general virus an entirely fictional element. at the t.p. . people before the grand old asked. me for
11:48 pm
a cup of tea leaves. full good. judgment for the. room and for barbarians at the occupying forces become increasingly. many a 3 then leads the romans into an ambush although the outcome of the battle is a matter of historical record barbarians keeps the tension going until the gooey end. of. barbarians netflix kind of a my colleague joins me now. i read high expectations for production because other productions are being very good dark. and a 6 part series does have a lot going for it. david and goliath story set in the based on historical fact it was spectacularly shot not in the forests have to say
11:49 pm
but actually on location in hungary it should appeal to fans of shows like vikings and the last kingdom and there's no reason why it shouldn't do very well indeed and based on an interesting chapter of german history what do we know about the real large amount of tribes well that's an interesting exhibition in at the james. which deals with misconceptions about them the german it tribes were actually ethnically quite diverse. they were not barbarians but fairly advanced agricultural communities what we knew about them before the initial stories written by the romans and then further romanticized by artists. particularly around the time of the foundation of the 1st german i mean yes then becomes herman the german
11:50 pm
a massive monument is built to him in the toy to forest 800 years after the battle so was this a search for a sort of national identity battle let's fight but hermann is not ideally karst as the proton germany was no gun marnia he wasn't a unifier of germany that's the myth the were in all more than 50 tribes and therefore they were the forefathers of many european nations so not submissive misunderstandings but how historically authentic is this series it's pretty good it even has the roman soldiers speaking latin but it plays loose with facts but i have to say that there are only few verifiable facts here and there's a long tradition of inventing things to fill in the gaps in the knowledge so i think if you don't take it too seriously it won't do you any harm and you might enjoy it and for good and perhaps it'll inspire people to learn more about that
11:51 pm
part of german history barbarians is on netflix and the game martin is at the jane seymour gallery until until march 2020 ok i drink kennedy thank you very much. all 261986 there was a catastrophic. weeks that followed the soviet union deployed badly paid volunteers to remove the debris that created by the explosion disaster had triggered the release of a vast amount of material and these so-called liquidators were unknowingly placing themselves in great danger using actors photographers. devoted exhibitions. this staging is perfect the lighting equipment the phones of the clothes it all looks. but these heroes are

11:53 pm
enemy radiation is invisible. the title of the exhibition in the theme enter into an unbelievably good symbiosis here in this place the questions of heroism resurrection elevation to st e status they really rub up against each other. the phones of the redeemer are reflected in mirrors to peace. the idea of sacrificing one sound for the general period is not ideal still compatible with the age we live in. now before. there is still the concept of the hero right now we're once again talking about who wrote figures in respect to the challenges presented by the coronavirus another invisible danger we face.
11:54 pm
maybe it has got something to do with the church in the end people want to believe in something but if you look more closely at this world it does become difficult to believe in heroism. reason and idea as beautiful as it is questionable. paul mccartney is to release a new album made entirely in the english countryside joining lock down this is totally solo album in that he plays only instruments mix to produce that self and this time he's done this in surprises all with his experimental edge and it has signaled a new side to his talents the album comes. from one british musician who's working in the countryside jornada because. i was in the open i think some of his role material he's inspired by and uses the rustling of leaves. the
