6:12 pm
nice to have it to insist now but with the brakes it as you know it's will be quite complicated. for the food you mostly because the rest is coming by boxes and carriers but for the food i'm going once summoned in england so i don't know how it'll do for the future if the price is going to be the taxes the. song that's it for the moment so you're actually able to go there and buy food or products you know you would probably need to order them. probably i'll be obliged to order them but the problem is i go and find some fresh food and the freshman when you buy it on the website is very expensive so this is will be probably a big problem so for the moment i don't know how or manage maybe i'll be able to continue as i used to do it. as i said to people we wait and see so i have to check

6:17 pm
or just the changes you move. but it also brings foot traffic to the area it helps a rounding stores that are struggling to make rent payments it's a symbiosis or. arts and business together they're coping with bad news in a city that desperately needs good news especially now people seen it get this and . it's natural they're still here still fight in. the collaboration of landlords businesses and artist in new york shows how important it is to cling to positive things especially in times of crises. alone welcome to our club united special here and g.w. news i want to get good to have you with us how do you feel today well these days it's not easy to find that silver lining on the horizon right especially when you get bombarded with bad news day in day out it's time for the media to do better
6:18 pm
india record number of cases on sunday hundreds of ellison's. recent described as nonstop bad news is the world really in such a thoroughly terrible state for countries in the region. that of course the current coronavirus pandemic is indeed an extraordinary global crisis. but if you take a longer term view you see there have been many positive trends infant mortality has never been lower. and the number of people killed in natural disasters has been averaging downwards on top still we often get the impression things are just getting worse and worse myself included even though as a journalist i don't just consume news but also help shape it. why are we more sensitive to bad news doesn't have something to do with the brain i'm on my way to
6:19 pm
see neuroscientist martin. she has researched precisely these questions. at him from hour to me on the brain. process is negative news faster better and more intensively than positive or neutral news or to us we also remember it better the same terms of evolutionary biology and processing negative information better than positive information has been helpful was it because in the age of the saber check tiger and woolly mammoth missing a piece of bad news might well mean that's it for you how. studies have shown that test subjects from different parts of the world became more excited and occurred as soon as they were shown bad news regardless of their looking shit and culture. many media outlets use this effect to their advantage negative headlines sell more copies and get more clicks me. studies show that the media are publishing more and
6:20 pm
more of that news especially online. just about how is it a problem if the media revel in bad news. and absolutely is worse than foremost and makes us all have negative expectations so we go through life with the worldview in which we assume the world is worse than it really is left us. was the impact of media reports can be extremely strong take the boston marathon bomb attack in 2013 for example some people who followed the news obsessive stressed and frightened and others who had been physically present. so what does this mean hazardous elsa's my 1st of all it makes people less likely to take action you might think the realisation that we all have a worldview that's too negative would actually prompt people to become more active
6:21 pm
but many psychological studies have shown that that is precisely not the case and so i just what's more it can promote chronic stress we know that chronic stress can be a factor in many diseases including diabetes. cardiovascular diseases have clear and mental illnesses such as depression how can be depressed when you doubt it then. look at. the coronavirus pandemic is a good example after months of bad news many people have grown weary of the crisis they feel helpless and wish things would go back to normal. as a journalist i have to consider whether i might be contributing to other people having a misguided view of the world what can the media do better. well that's the big question let's bring in alric hogger rope founder and c.e.o. of the constructive institute in journalism for tomorrow in denmark good to have you with us how do you cope with all the bad news. i try to
6:22 pm
see the world and my news with both eyes closed looking for the problems but also feel that you are. the problem and the way forward. not everybody is capable of doing it and we certainly learned that bad news sell better than good news it seems in the media then it's all down to profit what could prompt media outlets to take a different approach. just a standard that is a big misunderstanding the american courts the 5th bleeds it leads it turns out not to be true ask people on the street in berlin or elsewhere in the world do you need more news you need faster news they would most like you said no i'm drumming it but i need something i need something to trust i do need journalism but i knew you needed me journalism that is passionate but also give me a full picture of the world that is what people want they want not more information
6:23 pm
but they need navigation stories about where we are what we come from but especially moving ahead so the idea that it's only fear that we should took tap into it that we've been doing in the news industry for years with telling people in the field that it's breaking news here something bad might happen here an appalling screening reship everything is going to hell what's here that has been our strategy and it has turned out that people turned their back on us they got overwhelmed and they didn't want to pay for it so if we think about it we should know listen to psychologists who say yes fear is very strong and as you said it comes down from the stone age but hope you speak of it that's the reason why people get up and you know we still don't and we remiss not to look into that absolute but we still have to obviously it's a journalist's job to report the truth and the truth isn't always beautiful yes and sadly a lot of bad things happen in the world so how can you as a responsible journalist strike the right balance reporting the truth but not
6:24 pm
adding to people's anxiety. yeah and we should not we should not give people false hope we our job is not should put a smile on people's faces we have the information to trust and we should remember that but we should we should see both the problems and then we should take one step further instead of just just looking for another story another problem we can't tap people on still don't is it you also have to watch this this could also be dangerous we should stick to the problem and ask the constructive questions pointing to the future asking now what and how if we have a problem what have other countries done that we can learn from that some things as they come to say i don't think that's a prospect office aleutians give people a helping hand and with half a minute to go is there anything positive in this current crisis the pandemic that we as dennis can take away from there's a lot one of them for me and i don't have to spend 2 days going to billin to talk
6:25 pm
to you for 5 minutes i could stay here we have learned more and more to do that also in meeting in that in the business world we have learned a lot of things in denmark for instance we should know and but people don't know that less people have died in denmark in 2020 then in the last 10 years every year why because people don't get the flu all right well that's that's in good news indeed only god are all there founder and c.e.o. of the constructive institute journalism for tomorrow thank you so much you're welcome. let time now for your questions over to a science correspondent eric williams. how are we supposed to deal with coronavirus fatigue when restrictions are being reimposed. this isn't a science question it's a personal one but pandemic fatigue is affecting so many people all over the world
6:26 pm
but i wanted to spend a couple of minutes sharing my own thoughts on it here in germany where it gets dark and cold in the winter a lot of people are really dreading the next few months even though compared to many other european countries things are rationally going pretty well here so far but it feels like they're balanced on the edge of a knife and it wouldn't take much to tip the scales and slide the country into some some pretty dark territory so for me at least in addition to just being heartily sick of pandemic restrictions there's also an underlying layer of fear that never really goes away and getting through the next few months will be easier if i can lessen that what helps me personally keep my fear somewhat at bay is is this focusing on the science which is not to say that it provides crystal clear
6:27 pm
answers all the time science is messy and what it seems to be saying can often change over time just look at what it now says about mask wearing for example compared to a year ago but the fact that ideas can change based on new have events is not a a weakness it's actually science has great strains and look at how far it's brought us less than a year after the 1st reported cases of this sometimes deadly fast spreading disease what we've learned about trade. being at has steadily lowered faith tella the rates among those who catch it and and there's a good possibility we'll see large scale vaccination against cove at 19 next year and that's amazing because it shows we aren't helpless even if we are afraid and exhausted by the whole pandemic thing i at least and know hopeful that if we can only hold out for a few more months things will look different and 2021 in
6:28 pm
a nutshell i battle my own pandemic city by reminding myself of how far we've already come and with hope for where i think we're going to be in the not too distant future. i'm out sit stay safe and prosecute.
