restaurant owner or bar owners but at the same time we have people that take advantage of this situation. what's driving it looks like a rather broad opposition to the new restrictions what's driving that was the main force behind it well media and the government as well are trying to understand who are these people that are actually demonstrating violently and in the streets and there has been rumors that you know there are people from the extremist right wing where x. from it's from the left wing but at the same time many say they're wholly guns are taking the streets to to process taking advantage of some people that are actually demonstrating because the rules are very strict at the moment that the main reason why people are going straight thing is the 6 pm will for which people cannot go to bars or restaurants after 6 pm so what's the role of our situation right now on new

11:12 am
staying in the u.s. the confirmation of amy coney berets to the supreme court has given america's top court a conservative majority for years the senate approved her nomination by 52 votes to 48 or appointment was strongly opposed by congressional democrats. after a month in the spotlight she finally got to say these words. judge me i need barack he's heading to the u.s. supreme court. it's a privilege to be asked to serve my country and this office and i stand here tonight truly honored and humbled. president donald trump is on hand to celebrate one of his signature achievements locking in a conservative majority on the supreme court for many years to come. this is a momentous day for america for the united states constitution and for the
11:13 am
fair and impartial rule of law. barack took an oath at the white house only an hour after the senate narrowly voted to secure the nomination order with only one republican not supporting the motion. democrats strongly opposed to the confirmation saying a supreme court justice shouldn't be appointed this close to an election let the record show. that tonight the republican senate majority decided to thwart the will of the people and confirm a lifetime appointment to the supreme court in the middle of the presidential election. opponents of carney barrett's nomination say it paves the way for conservative rulings on abortion rights health care and l. g.b.t. i.q. rights carney parent val that she will remain independent. the oath that i have found in lee taken tonight means at its core that i will do my
11:14 am
job without any fear or favor and that i will do so independently of both the political branches and of my own preferences. she'll take the 2nd of her 2 son choose date and a private ceremony which will allow her to begin official duties on the court. turning those boards form on a professor of political science at bard college here in berlin professor foreman how does any kind of barrett's confirmation of reshape the supreme court and why is everyone so concerned about it. well as as we just heard i mean this is creating a conservative majority of 6 to 3 on the supreme court which is the highest court in the u.s. which has to decide to most important cases really and to to prove whether a certain case is constitutional or not and there are many cases coming up right now not least of course the presidential election itself might produce new types of
11:15 am
cases and so this is a contention a contentious issue. but you mentioned the election day which is only a week from today how could the newly configured court have an influence that. well there's already been debates just yesterday there was a decision by the supreme court during the the nomination and appointment of him because he bird that wisconsin was not allowed to extend its a 1000000 ballots deadline and similar decisions are coming up for pennsylvania and for north carolina important swing states also so the supreme court already does have an influence and obviously something might happen that happened in 2000 everyone remembers bush versus gore at the time which was decided by the supreme court in favor of george w. bush making him the president and since this is a very contentious election coming up similar instances might might come about him supreme court might have a very important role to play ultimately what role would that be that the supreme
11:16 am
court would have to play in and what what what's the likely scenario playing out that well if election outcomes in the individual states are contended might be that the supreme court might have to take a decision oftentimes it does so without actually having to reason about its own decision so it's clear $6.00 to $3.00 majority might well lean in favor of trump we don't know this yet it's a put possibility. well the issue of health care is also coming before the called early next month could that be a way for bad to put a stamp on things from the very beginning. sure i mean this has been perhaps the most important policy item that people have been discussing with view to the nomination of of in the connie barrett as she has criticised at that such of the time in 2012 justice john roberts for her his decision to hold it hold the affordable care act constitutional however i think what we've also seen for example
11:17 am
with brett kavanaugh ordeal of course which the other trumped nominees to the supreme court is that sometimes conservative judges tend to become more liberal over time once they are in the institution of the supreme court so i think it's it's we haven't there's no final conclusion but how does these decisions might go yet. professor boyce foreman from bad college here in berlin thank you very much for joining us on the w. news in the u.s. indeed i mean you still to come. in the end i don't care whether you love me or hate me just as long as i win to be just one week before donald trump and joe biden face off at the polls we look at how american presidents both real and fictional a fad on screen. but 1st workers and students a better road have gone on strike to press their demands for democratic reforms and the resignation of president alexander lukashenko the strike raises the pressure on

11:20 am
conference scientists there said they found more water on the moon than they ever thought before but they shut down the idea that that would mean the moon could harbor life. the discovery of more water on the moon was confirmed by technology from its flying lab the stratospheric observatory for infrared astronomy known also by its acronym sophia the scientists said that the deposits are at least partly the result of meteors that carried water and that crashed on the surface of the moon the impact caused rock to melt and form glass beads and trapping the water thus allowing it to survive on the moon's harsh surface more water bearing beads might also be buried deeper nasa also said that there is perhaps more water hidden in the form of ice patches located in permanent shadows of the moon one of the nasa scientists said that it's not a lot of water the amount is equal to $1300.00 milliliter bottle of water per cubic
11:21 am
meter another said that the water doesn't mean that there could be life on the moon because you need more than water to ensure the conditions for life oh. well. what will. however scientists did say that if they can eventually extract enough water from the moon it could eliminate the need to bring water on space missions water is very heavy and takes up a lot of room room that could be used for other purposes. and we stopped counting the number of times that tolls have dropped over the antics of the current us presidents and as a bona fide a reality t.v. star donald trump's hold on the public imagination is certainly
