11:04 pm
we're going to lose there were no other 200000 live nationwide the next several boards all because this president cares more about the stock market and you don't you think biden is leading in nationwide polls and in most battleground states but president trump is determined to hold as many rallies as he can to pull off another surprise presidential when days from now could you believe it 10 days 10. well here in germany the number of people who have died from. the past 10000 this follows a sharp spike in the number of new cases in recent weeks with a record 14000 new infections reported in just the past 24 hours chancellor merkel is once more calling for solidarity in the face of the crossest urging germans to act responsibly. mosques are now required outside in some crowded pedestrian zones. but not all people here are abiding by the new rules. a few
11:05 pm
kilometers away german chancellor angela merkel expressed concern about the shop price in new corona virus infections in her weekly podcast she made it clear that citizens played a key role in containing the spread of the virus. that's goodwood the order of the day is to reduce contacts and meet with this few people as possible if we all make an effort that we can meet the huge traveling as this virus parses. the view was all. it was an unusual address after just over a minute the chancellor's message shifted to repeat the one from a week earlier she said every word of it was still relevant. if i ask you to refrain from all traveling unless it is absolutely essential please refrain from all celebrations unless it is absolutely essential please stay at home
11:06 pm
whenever possible. the business friendly free democrats contend there are too many restrictions and merkel is practically demanding a 2nd lockdown they want to focus on protecting risk groups such as the elderly and the sick. we can do that with rapid tests we can do that with 95 masks by making them available for free so it's very important to protect these vulnerable groups but not lock the markets. better the socialist party finds merkel's warnings reasonable but they want a weekly debate in parliament about the consequences of the restrictions of what's on the un for same adverse effects on society above all the socially weak children families and single parents that belongs in the bundestag and it cannot be dealt with in a weekly podcast. these concerns could be part of a poem and 3 debate in the coming week merkel is due to make a statement. until america they're asking people to be responsible ok i'm joined
11:07 pm
now by a report in the cobra's a nickel you've been following the situation germany had been doing relatively well in the crisis yet now the numbers story why oh basically we've also seen that the numbers are slowly going up already since 2 dive effect then it was 70800 cases a day now we're almost facing 15000 that's a lot to take in and they also say the reason why i'm going to america has been time and again reminding people to stick to the rules and that they have the power to actually influence that but these numbers pretty much reflect that they didn't take the chance you know probably many germans are coming out of a rather relaxed summer they were able to travel again after a very hard time the way able to gather again and they were able to partake and to go to restaurants etc but now we are reaching autumn and things are pretty much happening also inside which is perfect for the virus to spread we have learned
11:08 pm
already and this is happening as they have this rather relaxed attitude and this is why the numbers probably are going up and on top of that we have also have regions in germany that decide on domestic travel bans that have been overturned within days or here in berlin we had a curfew for bars and restaurants which then salsa makes them chains already and this is not setting a really good example for people to you know stick to rules and be confident about what they're doing or like avoiding a fatigue that probably each one of us has suffered at some point during this very long crisis it's been a flashpoint between the federal and state power here in germany but it's also across borders it's now the same situation in other countries in europe yes because people are in the same situation i mean we have a new hot spot across europe almost every day one day it's the czech republic. we saw france struggling against spain still one of the most affected countries they just reached 1000000 infections this week the 1st western country in europe that
11:09 pm
has that since the phonetics started it and they're looking into declaring the state of emergency again maybe to morrow they want to have cabinet meeting sanchez the prime minister already said that they are probably looking at triple the number of cases like that they're facing officially so he's already pointing at the hidden figures and so regions want to make sure that they have the legal powers to implement new restrictions in their parts of the country let's remember spain had one of the toughest lockdowns in europe nobody was really able to move for months that might not happen again but that trying to avoid it by may be to create in that state of emergency tomorrow and let's face it i think pretty many countries in europe in the same situation they're trying to avoid national harsh lockdowns and trying to find a solution in between to not have to go back to spring and when when autumn nicol
11:10 pm

11:18 pm
this video here wouldn't have made much sense if i had been sitting upright. the sex industry would not be going to those technological length if it didn't expect to profit illegal porn streaming and private online sex providers have resulted in considerable losses in recent years gamble only time will tell whether the op one really does offer a way out of the crisis more and more videos are becoming available online but what's the attraction. mortal in tokyo is one of japan's leading produces. when you watch a p.r. on a t.v. or a p.c. screen it's usually from a bird's eye view of the real v.a.r. emphasizes the experience much more. the customer feels as if he could really touch the girl that he has real eye contact or that he can feel her breath next to his ear. so it's a completely different view or perspective to

a standard movie that. i found the unusual perspective unsettling. first impression it's really very detailed a little bit weird to watch to be honest because the woman in that clip i just saw she appears shoot this distortion is linked to the distance between our pupils which is different for every person the images are set to a stand that this if this doesn't correspond to the eyes of the person wearing the glasses the proportions will be distorted. the filmmakers of soft on the amount produced that he obviously owes in this studio everything here is white but this ensures that the background isn't distracting and allows the producers to better direct the viewers focus. of them want. to be able to know what my mother the strength of b.r.
11:20 pm
is that it enables different forms of interaction what it will take in the it allows you to get to a place you couldn't get to before. so into action is the magic word this combination of technology and emotion is something that can be found most of all in japan according to not luna hi the british author and podcast the focus is on ethical issues related to digital technologies. amazing innovation and which is. that you seem to be. a lot of people in a lot of places you are very expressive of their affection for technology and you may end up going in a great relationship with ok i kind of love my smartphone too but that's as far as it goes somebody observations already enable you to build your dream partner does that really create deeper connections. being able to configure a virtual partner like in a computer game and having custom made avatars thanks to computer generated images

this is a future v.a.r. producer yasha moto finds promising. will be possible to design individual body parts such as breasts waist or hips to create your ideal woman with the help of c.g.i. optical you have a sex therapist dr michelle paid to refine this technology problematic he says even normal porn films already create unrealistic expectations in his patients. or you're somebody in one point. and now we're reaching a new level here the user can actually select his or her ideal partners body. but the consequence of this would be that any real life partner would end up being compared to this fantasy product how does it constitute let's reach missing lots. natalie not high also worries about consequences this comparison can have she researches ethical issues surrounding digital technologies. both. being

human and all being embodied is about it's actually quite a complex issue if you end up with a real b. . humans trying to emulate. them selves in order to look more like that's the reality count. models real people trying to look more like virtual of a tot's sounds pretty dubious to me they are already reports about people having plastic surgery for that reason cutting edge technology and the sex industry seem a good match for not a few has long been a driver for technological advancements by the passion boss the author of the erotic engine is certain that without tomography the internet would not have grown so quickly not convinced well yes some examples online payment systems without paper $1.00 size payment would be a simple and secure as it is today online streaming without with streaming software developed for pornography size media platforms would struggle to deliver news clips
11:23 pm
online advertising without advertising from sec size many free internet services wouldn't exist and now we are even in the development of sex toys experiments are being made but virtual reality and for once the products on offer not merely targeted at and that we are. dealing this exclamation of surprise is from an ad by dutch sex toy manufacturer the company offers a vibrator that can be lent to v.r. glasses by an apple special vibrations which correspond to what's happening in the film or transmitted by the gadget. of course there are similar products for men to for example virtual make a device for men that works with the r. and real time sensors and promises a realistic erotic experience. such devices can also be linked using apps and controlled remotely by someone's partner
11:24 pm
possibility that some couples find appealing. but i think that nothing that enables us to relate. more fully with someone else especially when so many of us are at distance where for instance in a pandemic if you look in different cities and it's going. to express your desire for the other partner and it's a different way and so i think it is designed to create a connection in a way that people want and that's one. sense of the cover of night in pandemic began digital adult entertainment services have become more popular well direct physical contact is rather difficult at the moment especially for singles the us paul web site pornhub as reza says up to 25 percent more hits on its site this year many people really miss physical contact that's why research is currently being conducted about how to make virtual experiences even better one promising possibility special suits that simulate touch and warmth. and technology when
11:25 pm
paired with assets in could be really powerful because it gives us physical cues it's not like this. to the digital touch of another and that's going to be much more plentiful and much more real and physical and actual sense and just having some. or all auditory. soft on demand in tokyo is currently working on integrating additional sensations the goal is to eventually include all of our sensors in the video experience. at the moment we're testing new technologies to make the v.a.r. experience even better that is how it is for example we are working on a technology for smells like a woman's mouth to thank you. well feel taste prospects seem busying already offers the possibility to slip into other characters or other bodies or for example to playfully change sex if we are not amiss. the
11:26 pm
sense of anonymity can give us a great feeling of freedom to disclose and to be honest and. able to express things that we might otherwise and difficult so i think given the reality office that possibility it is very possible that we can be more insular nuts that could technology really help us to better understand our own sexuality and so to gain a better understanding of others in real relationships it's an interesting thought if you like. i might maybe one day all of us will not only want to have sex in our bedrooms but in the dream worlds that are most exciting for us on the constant that . that would be one way i could see virtual reality providing exciting possibilities for users in everyday life. not just with pornography but for couples as well documented service you sign come on. to be our sector is expecting the market to grow to 13 and a half 1000000000 euros by 2022 and this includes sex products after all many
11:27 pm
people enjoy exploring new options we are very adaptive as humans and we can learn to find those things at exciting and erotic and normal given the amount of time to get used to it so yeah i think a lot of us will end up expanding our sexual records income that's that remains to be seen we're quite a way are really natural looking and i i think a certain point we might end up seeing but in the other direction and one seeing real physical human contact with human beings. what do you think what do you try adrià sex to technology and feelings go together share your opinions with us on facebook on d.w. dot com if you want to know more about. a reality check out. that's it for me thank your next.

rain and the more we cut down the less rain there is one that they say deserts advance but they don't if humans that make it possible things must change we must all plant. big cities are growing as a breath taking speed in senegal. in the past 60 years the country has lost around hof of its forests to urbanization. tens of thousands of hectares of woodland continue to be destroyed every year. yet in from this one them there's a lot of pressure on the center's. population is rising there's more construction and fewer green spaces and trees we're neglecting nature and that's why desertification is growing worse in our country. the result sure sure nature and more irregular wet seasons in the past the rain began in june and lasted 3 months
