6:50 pm
on display. ever has a very important jewish try these. and he's 3 there are a few places in europe which are so well preserved and on earth existence of the jewish community for now and the city has to wait for a day you know it's going to see which will be submitted in 2022. jewish medieval heritage could make it onto the unesco list 1st in germany. laughter can be the best medicine especially when it comes to confronting difficult or taboo subjects at least that's how book author and publisher miriam however sees it now she's published and then called anti semitism for beginners which uses humor and cartoons to address negative stereotypes about jewish culture so is she achieving her goal some would say yes even if humor can get lost in translation.
6:51 pm
that's art mr goldberg your account is in the red surprising given your surname. you're converting to judaism why we want to become part of the global conspiracy these are some of the satirical cartoons found an. anthology anti-semitism for beginners which pokes fun at anti jewish stereotypes the new york born writer who has german roots came up with the book project at the start of the coronavirus pandemic. fought immediately old conspiracy theories started circulating like the jews are to blame for the coronavirus that really bothered me. so i told myself i no longer want to get angry i want to laugh about this instead. we're at berlin's jewish little. bookstore where books from how the publishing house germany's 1st jewish children's book
6:52 pm
publisher are on sale. founded it 11 years ago these days she's also releasing books for adults like the kosher comics. more then told i'm jewish humor takes a difficult or a sad situation or what have you. and exaggerates it or adopts a new perspective on it. and that creates a sense of relief. come on in russian jewish novelist if not in the community has been living in berlin for 30 years his humorous works about everyday life have won him millions of fans he contributed a satirical text to harvest downs and biology humor he says is perfect for contracting anti-semitic conspiracy theories therefore go through the 4th grade
6:53 pm
it's a nice fantasy imagining our planet does not simply circle the sun someone is actually directing communicating and controlling everything. but i don't think it's the jews . at least not those i know. the bestselling author says the humor in his novels stems from portraying tragic scenes. is of course with remaining detached diski i've always had this detachment from the world given my jewish roots which i never chose. we were always treated like strangers we were always outsiders kind of like living in a guest house hold but that i believe has helped me over the years. and i let. them assert it. since you design a story it does performing the jews are to blame for

a satirical song written in 1031 by feet of a child and mocking the nazis anti-semitism. poland a german composer and humorist of jewish descent who was later forced to flee to the us. hollanders where has been named in his honor vivian cannot often performs how then does song she also contributed a satirical text to merely on how the best times anthology. enviable whether it's a virus spreading or a runny nose whether it's a failed relief package or a heavy cough whether it's climate change or rising sea levels whether it's a prolonged holiday or wages being cut the jews are to blame the jews are to blame for everything and i'm sure she says humor is the best way to tackle anti-semitism well it's because it's so grotesque and absurd that 75 years after the end of the war we're still asking ourselves have people learned from the past and you feel
6:55 pm

this is a lot from berlin celebrating 1700 years of german jewish history. germany honors the contributions of jews to its culture and national story one that goes all the way back to the roman empire focusing on the past present and future of jewish life in germany. and undaunted. thousands of people returned to the streets across the country to demand the military give up power just one day after police fire on
7:01 pm
a demonstration and killed 2 people. next peiser welcome to the program germany is marking 1700 years of jewish life and culture in the country with a year of anniversary of it starting today the nationwide celebration deliberately aims to look beyond the persecution of jews during the holocaust instead the focus is on the diversity of jewish life in germany's past and present. colonial was the 1st city in germany which issues were allowed to surf in a town center in the years between 21 after a decrease from the roman emperor constantine soviets fitting that this year's commemorations of 1700 years of jewish life in germany up scented here to ceremony last
7:02 pm
a year long program of events said it breaking jewish contribution to german culture and society german president. is the patron of the series of events. in these in 1st year there is a lot to discover and rediscover during this year of come immigrations in philosophy literature painting science medicine economy jewish people have contributed to our history shaped it and then lightened our culture judaism made a decisive contribution to germany's emergence into the modern age in the more down the by guitar. along with his acknowledgement that jewish culture is part of german culture there was also a warning that anti-semitism is under rise in germany. it is still true today even those who have never met a jewish person and who have never shown any interest in today's engine for those
7:03 pm
people still harbor anti semitism prejudices this prejudices are handed down from generation to generation and the less someone knows about jews demoed the prejudices enter. we have to address it is especially in schools where we must not only convey my own knowledge about 2 days in but also share more information about anti semitism. densher of anti-semitism was also highlighted by president's time in miami. then he wouldn't it was if i could wish something as chairman president for desir of come immigration it would not only be clear make a nation that jewish people are part of the sub 0 society but i would also wish that we could take decisive steps against those who say to you questioned is the god that does not. in foggiest do the you know him to come immigrations on hundreds of years of eventful common history teaches us that the german federal
7:04 pm
republic can only be home and if jewish people you would feel fairly at home here the halls of who. were happy to have with us the man behind today's event andrew kovacs is the managing director of the 7500 years of jewish life in germany association and he joins us from cologne mr couch thanks for being here if there was one big message about the year of commemoration what would that be. we want to we wanted to show that we have a shared past shared history in the show society between jews and non jews and we want to show that we have it shipped over 150000 jews that it now ija me and there is a growing tendency your in the past years and very very want to show that we want to have a common future as well and to have this common future we need to understand this
7:05 pm
is a bit like neighbors that it's not enough this is our approach to learn from each other and to observe this very important to spend some quality time and to build up an empathy and only with this empathy who we are we are convinced that we can fight against and say that there's a lot against conspiracy theories. you know when it when you get here and then as i've done for a while it's really hard to miss that a renaissance or an incredible renaissance of jewish life where there's a klezmer music or israeli rez you know restaurants and so on but the same time you're reminded everywhere of the holocaust whether it's for morals or they have this type of style or how do you reconcile these 2 disparate you know events are feeling is going on in germany the same time in your vet. well it is very hot and the heart of this story and it's the most terrible crime committed if you meant can probably and we cannot forget it and it's very hard to combine nevertheless we have
7:06 pm
a new generation of young people and we have to look into the past we have to learn but they also want to look into the future they want to live together and not to forget that we are 3rd maybe 4th generation so we need to still maintain the remembrance we need to still learn and ensure that it never happens again and in the same time we also have to look at the positive moments and we also have to look into the future. and you know your. earlier touching on an uptick in anti semitic incidents in germany in the official body from the federal government there is one there is a person who monitors or says that it's a growing problem where does it come from. a personal level does it make you feel afraid. well and isn't it is a man to judaism is probably all virus mankind it's all were over 1700 years old as you should now think today's germany so it's has a very very all tradition unfortunately and it is still statistically every 4th
7:07 pm
person for example in germany has anti semitic thinking in their heads. it doesn't leave a freight because it was there and it is that it makes me very concerned of course and i think i'm talking will says that you want to live there after a year and it is really it is the time now to fight that and to try to try to lower this kind of percentage for the future and i guess that part of that you know becoming safer and having people understand and help the empathy we're talking about is understanding the holocaust why is that still such a sensitive topic for many germans. well we are living 76 years after the shot it is actually nothing when you look at the end history and if we are kind of 3rd generation like my grandparents were in the past and i'm talking to people whose grandparents might be might have been involved also in the crimes that
7:08 pm
were committed during the nazi time so i think it is a very very big challenge still so actually communicate and to get kind of to relax and elite this way how to get into the future. this is i think the main reason ok very cogent thank you for communicating with us about 700 years of jewish life in germany thank you it turned out to take a look at some of the other stories making news this hour. during election day in the share a vehicle belonging to the electoral commission hit a landmine in the southwest of the country killing 7 people voting is underway in the african country in a presidential runoff between former foreign minister mohammad bazooms and former president mohamed. the head of the international atomic energy agency raphael grossi as that the top iranian officials in tehran including the
7:09 pm
foreign minister grossi is in a rented try to restart international inspections of nuclear facilities which tehran is blocking the visit comes as the new american president joe biden says he's ready to rejoin the international nuclear deal with iran. thousands of farmers have gathered in india's northern punjab region to protest against the country's new agriculture laws the farmers are demanding the repeal of 3 new laws they say threaten their livelihood and benefit large corporations union leaders called on supporters to gather outside the capital delhi on the 27th of february for further protests. and me and mar thousands of people have defied threats of violence to take part in a new day of protest against the country's military rulers the day before police fired live ammunition to disperse protesters in the city of mandalay they killed at least 2 people and injured several others. the crowds had to flee security forces
7:10 pm
chased them with slingshots rubber bullets and water cannons the protesters continue to call for an end to military rule after a coup 3 weeks ago. they returned despite the risk the reality now crystal clear for these demonstrators after police killed 2 more people with live ammunition on saturday it was the worst violence since mass rallies began weeks ago past uprisings against the military have failed these demonstrators want them gone for good. i remember my parents fought against the military coup during the 1988 revolution and i too have to stand against this dictatorship if we fail to stand against them this time our next generation will live under the military dictatorship so we can stop this time. i want to say through the media to the dictator and his henchmen.
7:11 pm
we are peaceful demonstrators. stop the genocide. stop using lethal weapons. but they can't go it alone protesters are appealing to the international community for solidarity. the opportunity to feel that this leaves a lot to the number of people has increased today. and we will not stop. we will keep going till we reach our goal of democracy. the football although most of all we want other countries to take more severe actions than sanctions ok. here's a look at what it's about also did it. on sunday facebook deleted the military's page for inciting violence following saturday's deadly crackdown in. the
7:12 pm
killing several may strengthen the protesters resolve. they hope that this time perhaps they can free me and maher from a military that refuses to relinquish power. the syrian civil war has been going on so long some of the protagonists in our next report are too young to remember what life was like before the custody is began millions of people are struggling to get access to food and have their basic needs met but in the town of one man is doing all he can to keep young people's minds off what they're missing. from the outside it's mortal and building in syria bears all the scars of a country at war from the inside it tells a different story. 25 year old syrian boxer has taken over the space now he uses it to train a younger generation in the sport. when i was displaced from the city of
7:13 pm
aleppo to a tyrant i got back into boxing and fixed up this place where i train young people we're bringing back boxing and sports to distract them from the atmosphere of war and misery. like many other syrians lost members of his family during the decade of civil war here what stuck with him is his passion for the sport. so i fell in love with boxing thanks to my father and uncles they were syrian champions in many arab competitions i've been into boxing ever since i can remember. that passion resonates with these youngsters who relish an opportunity to learn something new. and. there are 15 of us we train every couple of days it gives me the motivation to one day become a champion in the sport. and.
7:14 pm
that's. hope too it's one that gives these young people a desperate needed perspective looking beyond the end of the war. and it's time for sports now let's take a look at the results so far and bonus the a match day 22 live see comfortably beat her to berlin to move within 2 points of league leaders byard in sunday's early game drew with liver cues and in saturday's big game dortmund took the honors in the rivière darby thrashing rivals shaka for no elsewhere frankfurt caused a shock as they beat byron mind speed we know in berlin down freiburg cologne last . friday will spur ease past bealefeld hoffenheim are currently taking on furder bremen in sunday's late game and in men's tennis serbia novak djokovic has won the australian open by defeating dan in the dead of of russia in the final joke of it's
7:15 pm
the world number 11 in straight sets extending his record of australian open titles to 9 djokovic now has won 18 grand slam titles 2 shy of the all time record held by roger federer. if you watch indeed if you news up there is shift living in the digital age spicer thanks for watching. they want to know what makes the jam you just hit the good. and bad inkling way up. alive and out the door. and everyone with needles in everything. getting you ready to meet the germans then join the writers do it under. children 2 continents. one giant troublous and when you're
7:16 pm
a kid in no mood to see. anything in my reading anything legally change including a fuel economy using. how will climate change just stick to us and our children. learn more e.w. dot com slash water. traffic jams crowded trains and cheer and those waiting nothing in building stresses me out more than trying to get from one place to another and of the only one traffic is a growing concern in many large cities across the globe small technologies can help us solve this calles how exactly that's our topic on ship today. out there many still use cars as their main mode of transportation aside from air pollution and the climate crisis this also has
7:17 pm
a huge drawback more and more traffic jobs in paris for example drive us stock bumper to bumper about 165 hours a year mall and that's. nearly a solid week in your car honking at strangers but probably not for long autonomy passengers can use the drive to do something much more productive i for one wouldn't mind brushing up on my friends but for this day to come they are still a lot of things left to work out and the biggest challenge developers still face is humans. driverless cars use their versions of sense of stick control themselves autonomous like. but so far these cars have merely recognized by destiny as objects of motion. chaotic systems are unable to calculate pedestrians unpredictable behavior or to properly understand their body language.
7:18 pm
london based tech company humanizing autonomy and other research institutes are working to develop models for human behavior and traffic. this data will hopefully then train autonomy's cars. so humans very complex especially when we come to cities we can treat them with normal motion timing i read in our expertise is in combining behavioral psychology with statistical and deep learning. for protest reasons too it's important to be able to communicate with an autonomous car the normal eye contact and just drink won't help. developers are working on interfaces that could be used to signal to pedestrians whether or not they can cross the street by using light signals in the windshield for instance . there's a problem no contest train behavior and non-verbal communication differs around the world. if you look at for example in munich no one will
7:19 pm
jaywalking. where you come to london people are jaywalking all the time the great thing about makers today and of course they're trying to achieve those features that. you know. we have a mission for each of these places it would be a different set of models that would be each of these faces and these models would be fine. clearly there's still a long way to go and that's what experts from all around the world gather regularly to discuss future mobility solutions like at berlin's the for one main topic is how can a driverless car seat or more specifically which sensors does it need to recognize and respond to its surroundings as well as to be expected in the mosque has a very strong opinion on that matter let's take a closer look. at. autonomy's cars use cameras to ultra sound and radar to
7:20 pm
analyze their surroundings as well as the more modern bidar sensors that use lasers . to paul new signs in. these different types of sensors because radar and lidar can calculate the distance to objects very accurately but they don't capture enough details to recognize what these objects really are when it comes to humans it's the camera that's best equipped to detect what their intentions are. are they about to cross the road or not you know of an issue. the industry's top companies are increasingly setting their sights on light or technology which stands for light detection and ranging here sensors attached to the car sent millions of laser impulses every 2nd this creates a precise 3 d. image of the surrounding objects. basilan musk recently ruffled some feathers when he said lighter was too expensive and the cameras radar and ai systems would suffice tesla uses only radar radio waves are used to measure objects distance and
7:21 pm
speed using this data and the camera images a 3 d. image of the surroundings is then created with the help of they are. flowing roboticist in manufacture of light our systems disagrees with the. must. be free and there is the problem is that cameras don't offer direct information about distance and radio isn't high rez so there's missing information on the phone this means you need another source of information to be able to navigate safely home the question here is can you set cost on safety and i thought one i'm absolutely against this in my opinion my bet is he needs to be completely safe which also means using the best census was the best and then zone 5 and. by the way experts believe one out of 10 cars on the road in 2030 will be self driving some are already hitting the streets today like this and on this bus at a clinic in florida during the corona pandemic setting cost of a whole new advantage they can help minimize the spread but these are just
7:22 pm
precursors to truly a ton of those vehicles where a passenger only needs to punch in the destination turn over the engine and then lean back and relax. but to be really want to let a robot take the wheel is even safer and who makes the better drive out man. dimensions i think humans are very good drivers but machines are better and it's not like their actual driving is better in every situation but they're always paying attention that many people get distracted by their own origin ice cream or drink coffee and that is the problem humans just on always paying attention and machines are programmed to always be attentive which is why that data drive as a rule of the long if this doesn't fall. is a moment is going to the moment it's definitely humans who are the better driver seen as new donors the machine offers good support especially in emergencies but humans are definitely better than in the future it will definitely be the machines
7:23 pm
you know the advantage of an automated system is that it's always activated it has a $360.00 degree view and it's crucial for the city and it has a general understanding of the situation what are the other road users planning to do and. right now i would definitely say mad in the city for sure. but man makes lots of mistakes and this. led to and continues to lead to lots of injuries and that in cities themselves i'm optimistic at the end of feature we will have more to meet systems that create a safer and more pleasant city for already exists. how could a robot possibly be a better driver that was. joking aside how differently intelligence does have some obvious advantages it never gets tired of distracted and it always keeps it cool i wish i could say the same about myself either way vehicles console the issue of in
7:24 pm
the city congestion on they all they need additional digital assists life software they can factor in my preferred mode of transportation my current location and the time of day to find the quickest most efficient way to get where i'm going next but at the institute have teamed up with great minds across europe to develop just that . team as a smart navigation system for all. road users cars bikes buses and trucks it's a project that's designed to regulate the entire traffic and help everyone to reach their destination faster. the sat nav supplies information on traffic jams and makes recommendations. for instance what speed the driver only to travel at to make the next green light. the i knew him as a real challenge in traffic management must understand the needs of all road users trying to get from a to b. . then this needs to be analyzed and reconciled with what's actually possible within mobility in the future i could definitely see new technology helping us to
7:25 pm
react in a more dynamic way than. team would send data to traffic management centers while it simultaneously navigates road users traffic management would then be able to react to the various situations immediately they could adjust traffic light durations and speed limits change the bus schedule at short notice divert heavy traffic on to unused bus lanes and much more these decisions would have to be made visible on the street you mediately. if i say traffic lanes will be used more dynamically than i have to think of a way to do that maybe with l.e.d.s. or something what can i bring into the space to make it more dynamic. virtual traffic lights could be an option if there are lots of cars maybe we need a traffic light but if the road is quiet then this could simply be displayed in the individual vehicle and for us to go. if concepts like these can reduce traffic in berlin and other cities then great but if i'm being honest the syphon out in the
7:26 pm
was hoping the future of mobility would look a little cool like flying cars lucky for me there already research is out there working on some crazy new ideas check these out. the flywheel is an autonomous lead driving vehicle which could replace cars the wheels can be connected to one another to. longer units. are designed to use existing subway and railway tunnels as a form of collective transport and then they can disconnect again to bring the passengers to their exact destinations the idea came from an architect. just think it is i don't think of the fi world as a form of motorized private transport like a car but it's not a public transport either by the subway it is something in between takes the best of both worlds and create something new which we've called a collective mobility system collective religion says.
7:27 pm
the ball of copters an electrically powered autonomy's flying taxi that can bring passengers to their destination much quicker than other means of transport. the developers aim to reduce the number of vehicles on the road whilst also reducing air pollution. and this is the hybrid the i pod the truth through to almost at the speed of sound the idea came from tech visionary musk in 2013 the era sucked out of the 2 creating a vacuum which with barely any wind resistance propels the passenger capsules to speeds up to 1200 kilometers an hour developers around the world are currently working on hyperloop projects a 2 hour car ride say from abu dhabi to dubai would take just about 12 minutes. with that i might even enjoy commuting to work every morning but it remains to be seen if we goes like these would be a bailable to the wider public if they remain toys for the super rich or whatever
7:28 pm
happens expose all around the world are working hard on the future of mobility if i had my way i'd hop off my balcony directly into my flying car then use a bike for shorter routes for example and the bike. the future of mobility how do you imagine it what would you lie. to see let us know what you think i can't wait to hear your ideas that's it for me for today see you back start. the ask. the a. sunni
