security is being tied in the cross the north of india's authorities fear a legal judgment on a religious side will spark massive unrest the high court just ruled whether the land in the ancient town of ayodhya belongs to muslims were hindus it's a story dispute that has already taken thousands of lives as current singer reports . and uneasy rests on the streets of new york here the battleground for an interfaith legal showdown in those considered a two week a plot of land the sacred birthplace of lord rom a hindu god but previously it was an islamic mosque that stood here until in one thousand nine hundred two a hindu mob destroyed it that and the anti muslim riots that followed remain a blot on india's image as a secular country since then the government has resisted attempts to build a temple or a mosque on the disputed site and now there are fears that riots will follow but that the court supports the claims of hindus or muslims and that angers or your
tears residents of all faiths because they feel trouble is usually fall vented by outsiders and i think that you cannot get in the entire muslim community here wants peace whatever the verdict is whoever the land goes to we are ready to make sceptics for so many years political parties have used the religious sentiments of people to create trouble and gain votes we will not let them succeed this time. there's a real desire for a quick decision to allow people to get on with their lives shopkeeper own prakash pandey says his sales are down because pilgrims are staying away coupled with upper limb pick to samantha's this is a temple town and if people don't visit because of trouble or increased security i can sell them my goods how can i survive like this. many analysts insist the india of two thousand and ten is different from the india of nine hundred ninety two and both people in political parties will show restraint most indians have moved on
from the divisive politics of religion to the more pressing issues of jobs and livelihoods i did for you. the government should let the verdict come out whoever it may be if it favors the hindus that our muslim brothers should not mind it they should accept it peacefully as a decision of the court and if it favors the muslims then my hindu brother should also accept it gracefully. whatever the verdict this will not be the end of the judicial process as the losing side is certain to appeal to india's supreme court nevertheless this is an opportunity for the people to showcase an inclusive india of the twenty first century where the rule of law is followed and where religious bigotry has no place got and seeing new delhi coming up in the program battling with the authorities to find out why tens of thousands of protesters across you were at their governments. why being buried alive can make you mentally stronger. for the major media outlets have the un general
assembly gathered to cover speeches from world leaders last week but when the biggest countries left the show so did the media leaving other nations to talk to an empty room r.t. is more important i found out just who was listening. an international circus of political power. public stress for new yorkers. reporters secret service and barricades three signs of world leaders are crammed inside one building for the annual united nations general assembly debate. this diplomatic gathering provides more than one hundred ninety countries an opportunity to promote their foreign policy agenda but generally it's always the same voices now is the time to build the trust dominating the states in identifying those responsible in the september eleventh attacks journalists flew in from all over the world to cover this seven day event with people who have endured too much more but
once the richest and strongest finished pledging their promises. the press prematurely concluded their coverage people don't care so it's democrat they care about what you see what. you know the. mainstream media pull the plug on this international story friday evening with more than one hundred and twenty nations yet to speak by live trucks and most police presence nations like palestine congo and mongolia were left addressing half empty auditoriums by monday when cuba spoke of suffering under us and forgoes camera outside the un along to a tourist between two thousand and twenty five hundred journalists were accredited at the un for the general assembly debates and when u.s. president barack obama was here the room i'm standing in was packed when he laughed he took all the media attention with him now only
a handful of journalists are left to report about all the other countries that are addressing the international body so the poorest leaders took to the podium campaigning for climate change and the scene inside the un media center spoke volumes less than ten reporters. and garbage cans overflowing with recycled rubbish piece that you see today also reflects that the u.n. suddenly doesn't draw as much attention. you know global governance seems to have so many challenges to address. to some extent there's a lot of difficulties addressed in those china just the first maybe garnering respect from its host country nearly seventy percent of americans think the u.n. does a lousy job in solving global problems maybe they should move it somewhere else maybe going as ireland where nobody would be affected by it you know it's definitely inconvenient for everyone however most of the world criticizes americans for
neglecting to understand the problems we only know what we're we don't know exactly what's going on. i don't know that's good or bad i mean. we should know we should we should be you know the same for everyone if not the united nations may remain a place where everyone continues to talk and neglects to listen arena portnoy party new york. this year has seen its fair share of natural disasters from a destructive earthquake in haiti wildfires in russia to massive floods in pakistan a country should not be alone of fighting these catastrophes as russia's emergencies minister tells us a little later. of course we analyze all our work we exchange experience and advice with our western colleagues i would like everyone to realize that such disasters are not nation specific catastrophes know no borders customs nationalities or religion this is perhaps the most important lesson we should learn from this situation we should learn to consolidate our efforts to join
forces to give a helping hand to each other and to do our job efficiently and that's. why you watch our full interview with russia's emergencies minister in an hour's time here on our team. tens of thousands of people have marched across europe outraged at their government's decision to impose the staring measures to pay off massive debts brussels saw the largest rally around the e.u. had quaters of demonstrators carrying balloons banners and blowing whistles people around europe and the government sure steve jobs wages and pensions trade unions expressed fewer workers to pay for the banks mistakes and warned that the sterling measures could lead to more unemployment campbell than a man a member of the european parliament blames the euro for most of the continent's current economic troubles. i think the euro is teetering on the edge this is
a manifestation of it this is a massive problem and you can throw hundreds of billions to trying to do but it's beyond i mean the real underlying problem is you're trying to force together all these different types of column is some a doing very well others a very weak and you cannot force them together under one common currency called the euro the euro's a problem it's just unsustainable this as a say you know they're throwing hundreds of billions of euros that suit and the germans are paying through the nose and you know the majority of germans now want to leave the euro and that's conceivable that we recreate all the national currency is for certain strong currency and leave all that we currently one or the other. and economic turmoil is only affecting europeans new census data in america shows a gap there between rich and poor is now wider than ever the u.s. also has a great as disparity of wealth among industrialized western nations wolf a new york based economist told r.t. america's market and tax system is speaking society more on equal. the wealthy have
been doing better than everybody else for the last thirty years what's happened in the last two to three years is that everybody else is doing deadweight worse so the average person adjusting for inflation and even in some cases not adjusting for inflation in the united states is actually worse off than they were two or three years ago and the wealthiest people in the country are relatively better off and we can see a micro example of it right now in which we couldn't decide as a country to get rid of the bush tax cuts which have been ruinous to the us budget unless we were sure to pass along the savings to the top two percent of income earners what it means for millions of americans if they're in the bottom ninety percent of people in the country so eight out of ten are nine and ten that they're feeling like they can't get ahead and that maybe times are tough for them turns out to be true for the rest of the eighty to ninety percent of the country who've seen themselves working more hours if they're fourteen enough to have a job and taking home less money and they're seeing a situation where they're increasingly living in a society that has
a distribution of income that we would normally associate with a developing country and a particularly equal developing country if you're not already in the top ten percent or so of the society it's going to be very hard to get there and the sort of social glue of historic american life that social mobility and the ability to get ahead and work is turning into an increasingly historically viable and presently incorrect fable of understanding which has little or no bearing on the lives of people in the country particularly younger people we've had a tax policy that's more or less intentionally made the society less equal for twenty years and is now getting more unequal by the day and so the market in the tax system that we have are working together to reduce the few things we had that used to equalize the distribution of income in the country. let's now take a look at some other stories from around the world and the u.s. government has blacklisted a reigning officials for alleged human rights violations but the sanctions freeze the american assets of a man including the revolutionary guard had
a bars him from getting u.s. visas the move is due to their alleged roles in a crackdown on opposition supporters after last year's presidential election the stamp increases pressure on the islamic republic as tension rises over its nuclear ambitions. a landslide in southern mexico has left at least twelve people dead more than a dozen others are missing and some houses are completely destroyed blocked roads in the area are making it difficult for rescue teams to search for survivors it follows tropical storms which battered the country's eastern and southern regions last month. the european union has launched legal action against france over its expulsion of the roma minority the government's accused of breaking rules ensuring free movement french officials say it's a part of a crackdown on illegal immigration and crime critics say the country is unfairly targeting an ethnic minority but france has welcomed the e.u. decision not to lay a more serious charge of discrimination. one group in russia has come
up with an unusual method to fight stress and b depression they are burying people alive in the organizers of this extreme treatment claim twenty minutes in a fresh grave might change your mind many things in life i've heard bennett went to try the remedy. above ground there are a few signs of life. below the surface a man trapped with his greatest fear is pavel has just been buried alive for twenty minutes not torture but extreme therapy. oh fantastic it feels much better on the song than on the ground. the first time pavel's anxiety got the better of him now he says he can handle the pressure. as no good the first thing you experience is panic once your face is covered with dirt you start tasting as i'm thinking of what the hell am i doing down here or want to come down to simply no other place like this these are the grave digging therapists modeling the
burials on an ancient form of self in lighting meant practice by shamans they wanted to make the rights more accessible believing everyone can benefit. is the most effective and powerful method overcome an internal problems person can neither see nor hear anything nor even move underground they have no other option but to delve deep inside their minds. a burial costs you around one hundred sixty dollars attracting both men and women from students to fifty something professionals all aiming to suffocate their worries a full day's psychological training claims to prepare them for the fears they'll face. such you must become a conditions can be subconscious uncontrollable there are different ways to overcome them working with mental images rhythm breathing there isn't a ray of means for a person to subdue their fear but we teach them the more of that i'm told that's. the maximum burial is forty minutes beyond that the mind struggles to cope with the
lack of physical function but they're thirty centimeters any deeper and the pressure would be too great to stand once under the volunteers briefly this cheat the organizes a ten year veteran of living burials and says this shouldn't be tried at home. but are we have to be able to get the person very fast and also contact them earth just to be distributed in a certain way across the body so that the key joints or pressurized you can practice burials without knowing about things. that until now i didn't think i suffered from any cost a phobia and that could soon change because i'm going to try this for myself now me given this to breakthrough which i'm told that we monitoring at all times so on a stop and all i have to do is make a noise so here we go. well
they started to fill in my grave and say well yeah this feels very very strange the soil is very cold and also heavy i'm doing all right at the moment but i think it's going to get a lot more scary and i was right five minutes after being buried alive i was very ready to see the light of day again. was one of the weirdest experiences of my life i felt completely trapped and i'm definitely never doing that again advantage r.t. moscow. certainly a brave man i rabbanit now had to argue a call for more stories we're covering for you here i r t twenty four hours a day here's a taste of what you'll find there right now america's infrastructure is succumbing to the laws of gravity find out why thirty five bridges have collapsed the state of minnesota alone. and as moscow's mayor gets the sack russia's gay

the world. join us for technology update on our g. . welcome to business good to have you with us while you have this facing a multi-year aslaug out of the economic crisis emerging markets are attracting more attention from investors will they be able to grow in the event of a shop slowdown in the developed economies of the help line up. in the months leading up to the summer holiday season europe was gripped by fear that it would be overwhelmed by do that there was much talk of greece rial and really spain defaulting on their bonds this opened up the bleak scenario of the euro zone collapsing and dragging down the world economy just as it was recovering from recession but a bailout package later and i'm first started to focus their attention on the other big problem the precarious state of the u.s. economy over the summer what happened was that the bucket started focus very much
on the concerns of a double digit in the u.s. and the fact that actually german growth was coming through very strongly and actually they were quite slow to realize that the sovereign crisis in the or as i had never actually gone away spreads were actually rising over the summer particularly in august when we had all the concerns coming through about the cost of resolving the financial sector crisis it all and and i think now we're in a situation where the markets realize this isn't a one year problem it's a multi-year problem while europe is busy cutting its way out of crisis much to the displeasure of public sector workers and the data from the u.s. is anything but comforting investors are looking for the next growth areas top of that list appears to be the bric countries brazil russia india and china but other strong enough to perform well if the developed nations start going into reverse again at least one analyst thinks not if indeed there is a second wave the second in the u.s.
so europe i want you marcus will not be able to sustain that growth why do was say that is that because of a large share of trade and capital flows still a lengths to u.s. and europe and therefore you know that into regional trade in the merger markets is still very small and therefore if the demand in the u.s. or europe tanks completely then the emerging markets will no longer be able to export their big chunk of their goods we'll see a freeze up on the in the trade exchange and therefore slow down and growth. in short the merger you can't do not have the consumer to decouple they will not make it alone but given a moon order an outlook where the u.s. and europe can sustain some growth in the emerging markets looks to outperform this is clearly what many investors are expecting and is likely to be reflected by money flowing towards the new markets. business r.t. . and in the latest news from europe tens of thousands of workers marched through
the streets of brussels and other european cities protesting against the austerity measures european governments are using them to get their public finances back into shape following a deep economic recession e.u. commission proposed earlier to impose new penalties on countries let their budget out of control this is done to prevent another crisis like the one pushed greece to near bankruptcy. and let's have a look at how the markets are doing here is asia on thursday stocks are mostly lower as massive protests against a steady measures across europe raise concern over the region's ability to cut debt down over a percent that's after the news that japan's industrial production profile the third straight month and august hong kong's hang seng is trading over half a percent lower. and in russia and here is russia's wednesday's closing figures we can see both the r.t.s. and the wise experienced over half a percent higher banks boosted the mines explode both bear bank and b. to be finishing around one percent in the black energy majors also lent some
support apart from. one percent at close. two of the stories we're containing traffic in russia was hit hard to end the crisis due to a slump in demand for raw materials from the regions but two thousand and ten is prone to be a much stronger year for the railways as per the bus cockup general director of trans container explains. i think the growth of traffic will be equal to eighteen to nineteen percent this year which is usually the level of container traffic outstrips the growth of g.d.p. by two times or even so of g.d.p. goes by five percent it means the growth of cargo traffic will be twelve to thirteen percent next year. i says major gas producer gazprom will start the construction of a new gas pipeline to china next year gazprom as deputy said the two sides move closer to an agreement on the basic price to present the dative suisun state visit to china they also grade our new terms for gas shipments to china including the
road gas quality while point at the pipeline earlier this week to supply thirty billion cubic meters of gas annually to china over thirty years starting from two thousand and fourteen. that they're in love the only valid reason for gazprom to provide a small volume with a large discount is to claim its share of the local market later the company may hope to decrease through this current through a change in the pricing mechanism if need for russian gas rises in china in general a long term sale of thirty billion cubic meters of gas for a price that may turn out to be lower than in the domestic market lukes on reasonable. that's all the update for now do and i had thought about the fall more here.
