if. you simply don't. believe. that. this is d.w. news live from berlin e.u. leaders meet in portugal looking for ideas to transform the work provide equal pay and fight poverty but questions over the fair distribution of covert 1000 vaccines export controls and the waving of peyton rights on lump a looming large also on the program. india's coronavirus crisis worsens as it

7:03 am
this summit central theme is actually social rights. it must work for youth and for women who were the 1st to lose their jobs during the lockdown because they did not have a proper contract europe's plan has been criticized by employers associations you have to understand that companies are really struggling to get out of the crisis now it's not the moment to be confronted with me. currently 21 percent of the e.u. citizens are considered poor or are at risk of poverty. and can we expect a consensus view from leaders on the issue of waving the vaccine peyton's we put that question to brussels bureau chief alexander phenomena. in porto well we have no from germany we have seen a couple of positive responses italy for example saying that this proposal to
7:04 am
lift intellectual property rights on the scenes is a good one and the french president emmanuel mccall also said that he is open to discussing that issue however he also stressed that the real bottlenecks are not the prices or the patents but increasing their production and also exporting vaccines and i think that could be a possible compromise here for them to say that you know lifting intellectual property rights on vaccines could be the last resort but what is going to help much quicker is to increase production and to transfer technology and know how on a voluntary basis. of the e.u. summit is on saturday with a focus on india including virtual talks with its leaders india has reported a new record daily death toll of more than $4000.00 fatalities due to the corona virus pandemic in the past 24 hours and once again more than 400000 new infections

with some asking why the government to decided to allow election rallies and other large events. to. call it the system or government or whatever was it necessary to conduct elections right now. for this family and countless others that question comes too late. and here are some developments in the pandemic. the world health organization has authorized the emergency use of china's cinephile vaccine the 6th to make their approved list the u.k. has announced that people under 40 will be offered alternatives to the astra zeneca jab because of a small risk of blood clotting and new york city wants to offer vaccines to tourists by distributing jabs at times square and of attractions. tensions are high in jerusalem following clashes between israeli police and palestinian protesters outside the mosque in one of the city's most sensitive areas dozens were

7:12 am
further with a shorter who's here with me what's driving these protests there's widespread frustration in colombia the protesters want the government to tackle poverty and to tackle unemployment and to do something about police violence the anger the heavy handed response from police against what's mostly been peaceful protesters has actually been a driver of more protests amnesty international accuse the police of using unnecessary and excessive force against the protesters and demonstrators and columbia it's it's got a very well armed police force it's a legacy from a time when the government in the state was fighting to control the. insurgency and and rebel groups like fark and the protesters they want president do k.

to actually disband a particular riot police squad then as as not and this is what has quite a familial reputation but president u.k. has already said he's not going to do it he's rejected that demand outright. demands that he's given in to yes they're all one of the drive one of the things that made the protests flare up in the 1st place was a plan to raise taxes on utilities on fuel on pensions on wages the government in colombia they're in a bind because of the coronavirus it's hit the economy the colombian economy is has shrunk and that means less money in the government coffers and rising government debt president to case that he had to raise taxes in order to fix colombia's finances and to actually be able to keep paying for some of the support that help colombia's poorest households whether this crisis so he said he needed to raise

how has the rate of infection been developing. measures are being taken. what does the latest research say. information and context. coronavirus into. the covert special monday to friday on g.w. . getting stronger and smarter through technology this dream is quickly becoming reality researchers and developers are driving for the digital optimization of humans with mind blowing results will be old soon become cyborgs today's topic on ship. those cybernetic organism or cyborg for short has played
7:17 am
a major role in pop culture for example in the movie robocop a police officer with potentially fatal injuries becomes the super cop with his high tech implants tony stark from the marvel universe can fly in his eye and superman's colleagues updates his heart with to gain new powers and skills these days even real life humans and their bodies with the physical components they called themselves cyborgs or bio hackers and from britain is one of them he's colorblind and has no intent that converts carlos' into sounds and unlike the human eye his intent i can even detect infrared and ultraviolet he has a chip implanted in his head to make this work pretty intense but actually there are lots of scientists and companies working on brain computer interfaces they allow direct communication between brain and computer so you can control device with your mind but it's not just a gimmick it can fundamentally improve the lives of people with spinal injuries on
7:18 am
your logical disorders u.s. tech titan mosque is developing a brain computer interface at a startup neurologic the team implanted chips in both brain hemispheres of a macaque pager they then taught him to play a game with a joystick and to snuff signals were transmitted to a computer via bluetooth pager was fed bananas. through a tube as a reward when the research is the activity of the joystick page a controlled the game with this pause alone the computer had learned to interpret the brain activity about their vices that humans can control the mind even with the brain chip like by only prosthesis that replace missing body parts but there's a game of daniel melville even uses one when he plays video games but prosthesis can also give people a brand new powers how would you like. this prosthetic makes it possible to do things that usually require 2 hands. is
7:19 am
connected to a wrist band with a motor which drives the thumb to receive signals via bluetooth from pressure sensors attached to the shoe the user can control the prosthesis by moving their big. news elan born scientist danny clode developed the 3rd in london she wants to show that prosthetics don't always have to replace what's missing they can also provide an add on and upgrade. what's fascinating is after just 5 days of training with the 3rd you assign themselves had formed in the test subjects brains and the way they use their normal fingers have changed other developments like this that blur the line between human and machine sometimes on the skin sometimes of the skin it might look like a temporary tattoo but this is actually
7:20 am
a communication interface made from gold leaf. and it was invented by the massachusetts institute of technology one version works like a touch pad while another uses near field communication for n.f.c. technology to communicate with other interfaces. in the future when you walk into a tattoo pollard. you would come out with a tattoo like this they will not only very sophisticated but they become an extension of yourself. eric frisk can open his door in sweden with a microchip implanted under his skin it's the size of a grain of rice and works like a card in a hotel it's estimated that 50000 people around the world already where one of these plants they can be ordered. and the interesting thing is when the chips start getting smarter and start having you know sensors and things like that so
7:21 am
instead of just opening a door maybe i can have continuously record my my body temperature my blood sugar level etc etc. and actually give me useful information about my body. but technology that literally gets under your skin isn't for everyone implants are just one way to become a cyborg now also robotic suits called exoskeletons they promise more strength and better. heavy lifting uncomfortable work exoskeletons could someday help people reduce the strain on their backs originally developed for medical and military use they're now increasingly deployed in the automotive industry and logistics many see it as win win employees stay healthier and companies profit from the increased efficiency in production. robotic
7:22 am
technology that makes work more ergonomic under intensive development predominantly in the u.s. and germany but also in china and japan. we want to create devices that help people in their workplace. and to make these tools more accessible and easy to use i don't think humans will ever become. there are only a few companies that are designing completely automated systems because they require considerate investment so i think we'll always have human workers. be exoskeleton created by a japanese company i told has been in use for years in production and in japan's biggest airports. the 4 and a half kilograms like a rucksack it has a sensor that detects the wearers movements so when listening to motors in the suit
7:23 am
automatically support the user's movement. the motors deactivate when the user is walking in. countries like japan are increasingly relying on robotics because with an aging population workforce issues are becoming depleted. right now we mainly make support devices but in the future we want to create products that enhance people's abilities and add physical function like a 3rd arm we want to cater to a society in which people of all ages can work without physical limits. and it could get much more spectacular than that that envelop us of have been working for more than 10 years on this mega exo suit called neo i was even allowed to try it out during my visit to japan i felt like lieutenant ripley on the side of high class of aliens with supernatural powers the developers claim alone can lift up to 50 kilograms it's hold that. of the construction industry or in disaster management
7:24 am
. have a growing role in the medical sector as well what's special about this model from the pound is that it's controlled by nerve impulses how is its name stands for hybrid assisted living as an ultimate goal even paraplegics could train with how to walk again. my colleague was under a ball when to test the exoskeleton of the company's cyberdyne in japan so these electrodes here will detect my brain signals and send it to this machine so that it will move for me so now i'm going to try to flatten and move my arm. detects pretty well and now i'm going to try to lock my arm in place and it will still move for me.
7:25 am
to see that it's pretty cool but i do wonder does this kind of is this a does this go out of control sometimes no. electrodes translate casandra brain signals into a command for the exoskeleton her brain sends the command move to the muscles via the spine the signal is detected by house built in sensors. the motor receives a signal and pal starts moving. this is more difficult for patients with paraplegia because the nerve connections are disrupted but if there are any remaining impulses how could provide beneficial treatment time for a little test walk because sandra is allowed to wear the exoskeleton herself it's attached to a bracket since it's designed for people with impaired mobility it's a very intimate. setting but it was actually really like
7:26 am
starting training right now. i feel a little bit mechanic with my movement. but i think it is just getting used to the machine because now i feel. more comfortable. so now he's increasing the speed. the monitor displays casandra and her nerve signals as a way for how works together with other systems to analyze the signals and evaluate user data. so how do paralyzed people actually learn to walk again with the activation of muscle impulses creates a feedback effect that enables the brain to learn how to make the body again from scratch it's called neural feedback training it only works for about 20 to 30
7:27 am
percent of paraplegic patients but the results are still impressive. so with other exoskeletons the movements are preprogramed so patients wearing the suit will have to rely on it permanently however with hell it teaches you how to walk again basically making the connections from your brain to your broken sentences so basically these patients go through the these trainings and at the end of the training they're able to walk again without the technology without the suit. was developed by japanese roboticist you know. he's the founder and c.e.o. all cyberdyne a professor at the university of to quba she believes these by only gays and. i will step into a new age. i mean it's getting to think as we're constantly wearing technology or strongly connected to it in that sense we're born cyborgs don't you think that they
7:28 am
want all the unity as technology becomes more accessible we'll be able to use it without even being aware of it this phenomenon is defeat usually of humans and technology and this symbiotic relationship will continue to develop we all becoming cyborgs or we already and if the technology becomes available soon won't people get left behind who don't want to be enhanced or who can't afford it what are your views on cyber technology is this the chance for us all to upgrade or are you skeptical let us know for example on you tube there will also find more videos about iran mosques new reading project and the paralyzed man who controls an exoskeleton with his mind.

elder nathan john. we meet 2 border. investigative journalists who are exposed to sex trafficking in nigeria. and they meet and talk are now who gave up a prestigious job in new york to stop their own company in nairobi. we stopped in zimbabwe in howdy a comedy group called t.v. but use this attention to the floor soda pop as well us of a pot of society. what is meant to inspire a youth is followed by millions online but not everyone finds them funny our correspondent had a look behind the scenes. hello jim. this set of macumba t.v. actors they are shooting it's such a skit on that country's police i think. it
7:32 am
woman reports an incident of corpses but she is a repeat minded 40 porting in influential government official. aim of the video is to motivate young people to participate in political process. pushing for positive change that would me make fun of who were they with the top office only the top and what if we are not just doing it so that we fight we're doing it so that you look at yourself and see we can a provably do things better for the general public time for abt them again but t.v. team includes 6 production members and up to 12 comedians the group started in 2012 and produces over $24.00 separate productions a month that creeps about the fictional guzzling police station amongst their most
7:33 am
popular videos. we've been told it is the times in the can stay we also need that who awfully just not want to sit down and be passive who only has one tool to yet to what ever we feel is an injustice but zimbabwe isn't an easy place to be a such a recent comedy series often abstract their oath of state authorities we've had our present office arrested charged with treason organization also. treason charges this is. my premise is they did they say they reached at least $1000000.00 people in month one social media. but despite their success they have to find creative means of navigating threats as problems we suffer from. very polarized population with
7:34 am
it's very hard to define on. subject matters on the maasdam back to the same freedom of expression is one challenge. ending enough money is another . and the comedians are hoping to make a name for themselves internationally but he will not go to the bold move move to what extent we want to go it or do we do. despite all the challenges they have been seeing in zimbabwe they still have the power in their enthusiasm. my gumba t.v. wants to go all the way our guest today talking to nigerian satirist john but 1st let's find out. from john is an award winning satirist lawyer and novelist he grew up in come to nigeria but now lives in germany. the writer uses
7:35 am
satire to lay open and criticize the polish truckers and nigerian society. he was only a means to an end. and he might self is not the goal and so. he was meant to transport people into a sort of if you like false sense of safety so the by the time. they realized oh gosh i'm probably in implicated in all of this with it's like being a very bitter pill with. john regularly writes for newspapers and his weakness several books one title becoming nigerian complications to pastors to journalists no one in spared from the writer's wit not even he himself. thanks for joining us on the 77 my pleasure you trained as a lawyer why did you leave the profession is because. of him. it was my
7:36 am
intention to go into a space that was more challenging mentally for me and lord did not hold that prospect any more i was getting bored and i thought that my skills might be put to better use as a writer which i quite enjoy doing you've written several books and one of the my absolute favorites is become in nigeria and in the book you criticize social and political power structures and manchuria for example you target rich also targets to females so what your book if i want to be famous in nigeria what are the things that i need to do. well you must pander to the crowd that's at least one thing and it's interesting that you ask that question because. guides like this a very common means to to to do satire to transmit critique of social vices or 'd of social behavior in so i quite like this medium
7:37 am
of of the how to the guide. to doing things so how to box or how to what do i need to do how do i become the famous guy in the whole of which are. well you need to start a paki they'd be deeper a few. sandals in the caftan i need to borrow your friends or save ok what's with the perfume and the and the messy is all these importance because you need to you need to be you need to be perceived a mile away. long before you arrive i get it i get it in this book you say that you have an abusive relationship with nigeria and we put it on our facebook page we asked people what sort of relationship they had with the country and lots of people sent in comments in want to set for instance that his relationship is that no love no relationship at all and obama says that. has gone very very sad
7:38 am
so many people agree with you but you've left nigeria and you've been away for the last 5 years some people would argue that you have no right to criticize a country because he left what would you say to people like that well well like i understand the argument it's not valid because niger happens you wherever you go you know you leave relatives behind if you get if your father gets kidnapped you certainly involved you have a long chain for example that ties you economically to the country you have. social ties you also have. emotional ties to the country it does not leave you because you leave and while the bad is green passport we will always be nigerians wherever we go no one will let us forget that a lot of the things that you have spoken about talked about in nigeria i'm from ghana and i can easily relate to them and it's also the same across many african
7:39 am
countries now let's watch escape from zimbabwe on the abuse of power and government . project you think it is a dubious character hello. you might be right but you'd likely find a country as well check out what he plans to about the minister. as you know i have embraced social media i have no on it facebook account i am no link to time and only should never change it. just so that i can get more in touch with the populace if that's what they're dealing. me my dear to me getting in touch with. who all who are they to me why should i get into your limb who cares about them. of cyber security i want to know can we turn the internet on or
7:40 am
off it will end if we can't do that can make least 10 don't. because there are a lot of people want very loudly do all social media and we need guns to turn little girl just a bit or even move them gold lately as. many african creatives use humor in the awake nathan is there a difference between comedy and satire one employs the other but they're not the same for uses among other things wit humor irony and exaggeration while for for for comedy the goal might be laughter for satire the goal certainly is not laughter the goal is a certain level of discomfort that provokes or that pushes people to be introspective for satire humor is a means to an end the not an end self so it's not entertainment and it's not meant
7:41 am
to just titillate people it's meant to provoke people to action is that to suggest that was set out people shouldn't laugh well the kind of laughter that satire hopes to provoke an uncomfortable laughter a laughter where a soon as it ends there is there is deep thought that follows or at least it is comfort and engagement with the issues that arise must follow so what's to end all of your subtle for me the subtle write seeks to move people to think to ask where they are in the very various hierarchies of power and how they use or abuse power not all of that is interesting but in many places across africa space for free expression as shown can is there a use for political satire in situations like this where press freedom is not
7:42 am
available for everyone it's important that people are able to critique their government and not lose their freedom in the process. and where this happens is also the such as job to point this out because you there is no subtle way there is no press freedom one is one needs to be able to at least have fischer 'd and that after critiquing government one does not end up dead. it's important not just for journalists but for society at large that that these individual freedoms are not taken away that journalists and and people like satirist able to shine a light on what people in power do thank you very much l nathan john and remember his book become in nigeria and it's out you should definitely read that book respond. thanks for coming in and thanks for joining us on the 77 percent but i'll go on to the next report. on next report it's also about

a writer nigerian journalist border she is an investigative journalist best known for her undercover investigation into sex work and nigeria's human trafficking mafia last year the story of her undercover work was made into the netflix film. and has given her international acclaim rule. of worry has been writing since she was a little girl inspired by her dad she became an investigative journalist. of worry has made it her life's work to shed light on injustices in her society. by a copy of the faith i just to go through this part of the last hari. how i had my power and story and see how it. aims to introduce those redemptive pari once and go for that to flesh it out is what comes to my mind. going further sometimes involves her changing her identity of all her stories none
7:44 am
has impacted her life as strongly as her 2013 investigation into nigeria's human trafficking mafia the traffickers promise women a better future and send them on a dangerous journey with smugglers to europe then they become sex slaves and the forced to work until they pay off a debt for the cost of their journey sometimes up to $60000.00 euros. ovoid started her investigation on the street for 7 months she went undercover as a sex worker. right now every way looking so. when lines for days are wrapping. change many gales of this tree. very young was. young i would do it it would much older i was. too boy oh boy herself lost close friends who disappeared and died as a result of trafficking she wanted to find out how trafficking works. unfortunately
7:45 am
she also encountered things that she didn't expect. she was raped abused and witnessed 2 people being beheaded in front of her leaving. i see that it's a depression that was the trauma that post-traumatic stress disorder . panic attacks at some points it's graduated i became suicidal. i didn't know that i was already badly affected you know your report lead to criminal investigations but there were no consequences. young nigerian women are still worth by the traffickers promises of a golden life in europe they're often raped on the journey their families are threatened and this happens to spite the public knowledge about it. today legacies red light areas see more busy than ever.
7:46 am
i don't really think. so much has changed i didn't really expect to see. very young girls on the streets. but the lives of say in the very your bills to images on the streets. a mix myside i. was to have a lot smarter. in my ovaries most recent investigation looks into how officials and embassies are involved in the trafficking networks it's dangerous but she believes it's worth the while. palin not for the voiceless giving voice to them so i have no regrets i've never had any regrets i would never have any regrets that i did that story. because story was the inspiration behind the
7:47 am
netflix movie a lottery which was released on 2020. 1 who work has inspired many more investigations into the topic of worry herself says she's not stopping anytime soon. and this year the border over what he has been chosen for the w.c. speech award the award honest journalists who have done outstanding work to promote expression from all of us here at the w.b.c. . from one strong woman to the next number symbol is a fund of and sports which they designed the tearing of africa kenya is famous for the promise office long distance runner will dominate a truck event once cost of medals and broken world records by the us for skia is typically not made in kenya or even africa. symbol wants to change but.
7:48 am
in a new novel layer assemble bad anybody codes and you never have. and chief executive officer of sportswear. and i was created with a mission to bring them benefits of running back to kenya. as actually meet the burden made to be made that was in the air force i got a master's international development from that and i'm school of economics and the one thing that you need new are we was just how people use our africa you know unlike in the case study to africa if you're talking about dictatorship africa you're talking about a tank africa so coming out of that i felt as if i needed to change something like today's so much you do to survive she's so much beautiful things happening in
7:49 am
africa at that where i'm not mrs i needed for elective in development. and event if i ever did something it would be something that's definitely improving development and at the same time using sports. time to make kenya for the potential with all the famous athletes coming from kenya surely we can do much more than just a few of us being recipients of our wide praises or to be used in marketing how can their country benefit as a whole. and that's when they got there with a united nations and then i moved to new york. i was a lake so full of lake joy and those of destiny seeming of late here i am i'm going to change it was like i mean deceit or poignancy and lake where i make decisions i mean that's the kind of just get there and you stay there until you retire and it would make a good retire and all. you have a gene like group us with don't get a golden handcuffs because it's just much more to life. there was an event in south
7:50 am
