3:01 am
good morning to you we're live from our moscow you're watching our t.v. you with me tom on with say it's good to have you with us to our top story this hour. foreign governments and businesses affected by the n.s.a. surveillance that edward snowden revealed are taking decisive steps to prevent future spying brazil is creating an encrypted e-mail service to shield official communications from u.s. snooping and germany's biggest hole comes from is a planning to switch to exclusively domestic connections to protect their users private data the details from our correspondent in brooklyn peter oliver. they are inside one of the main offices of germany's largest telecommunications operates and they are coming up with a plan that they hope will protect their customers information from the prying eyes of security services telecom has announced that they will only be using german service for all communications inside germany in the future this is something they
3:02 am
have said perhaps they would like to roll out through the across europe but for now it's only going to be here in germany that information e-mails and phone calls and text messages will only travel on german servers now this comes out following the revelations of just how much germany was spied on as part of the by the n.s.a. and british secret service is all of this coming out from the the leaks that edward snowden revealed to to various media outlets in fact just to sum up how much germany was spied on one leak that was revealed in news magazine in june of this year showed it's around half a million e-mails phone calls and text messages were intercepted in germany in the for each month the announcement by the telecoms actually probably prompted all the major operators to say that they want to follow suit vodafone among them as well as telefonica said they would also try to roll this out for their customers however
3:03 am
there are some that are skeptical of whether it could work due to the nature of the modern communications however telecom is saying that they're determined to protect their customers information from the prying eyes of the spice. and other way for businesses to ensure confidentiality is to move away from the dot com to main one company taking that route after the snowden revelation as major as a major malaysian investment firm that actually had a cesky talk to the head of a company up on its on line a tentative. this is one of the. numerous server rooms of the heart of the russian internet the dots are you demain and now these shelves of glowing boxes will have several more as the major malaysian investment firm has decided to relocate its servers into russia becoming the first foreign company to register within the dot are you denying the man running the company sas has done that because of recent revelations by edward snowden which seemingly have not only left high profile
3:04 am
politicians like the brazilian president offended but also prompted some businessmen to take practical steps to talk about it we're joined by the president of the majority and partners company mr. thanks for your time and joining us here my first question why did you choose to move your service to russia not anywhere else in normal company we just think that if we hear. from proof the world got from mr snowden that certain organizations in the west are listening into medical records of their own citizens and the e-mail traffic of g. mail yahoo hotmail i do believe it's time to say goodbye to dot com and has an excellent service that safe if i have a service which i pay for all i want is good customer service i want safety of my network or my server i have a program for this reality congress over the lucian it's time to wake up so the
3:05 am
malaysian businessman believes that putting his service into the russian domain he will feel more safe where that is so lost the people running the russian internet so given off from to santa to gate is it really secure is it really wise move by the malaysians to move the service here we can see it is more secure because. foreign intelligence agencies catered for example in great britain in germany in sweden and intelligence agencies told the united states have more cooperation with . these countries than with russia so it's more difficult to control when the equipment is situated just like you did in russia. keith c. whose company provides encrypted internet service is another entrepreneur he's moved all the firm's data to another country he told us earlier how washington's approach to security only fuels users demands for more privacy really what's happening here is that they have a different strategy instead of targeting the people who they know or suspect of
3:06 am
being terrorists are crossing bad things there they're expecting everyone to be a terrorist and that of course is not true so really what we're doing is we're offering a service that allows people to find the truth i mean really what's happening is people can't they're getting their emails blocked they're getting things censored and this is a way to get through that and get around it and you know most ninety nine point nine percent of the usage on a service like ours is going to be i'd say substantially it's going to be innocent usage so should you shut down ninety nine point nine percent of the world just because point one percent are bad people i don't think so we're actually getting calls from friends of mine who run businesses that store data for large multinational companies consumers are demanding this this is what's driving it's not about just me thinking it's a good idea for marketing or that we're going to find all the fringe paranoid people everybody wants privacy for their data right in the latest revelations which
3:07 am
we report on on our website the n.s.a. is apparently collecting hundreds of millions of e-mails and instant message contacts from users address books plus i talk with us on twitter for instant updates on the constantly unfolding surveillance can. search. and i think you're. on the result. thanks for staying with us the united states is only two days away from financial collapse and that's lawmakers can strike a budget deal to avoid default rival democrats and republicans have been stuck out of the loop for over two weeks with most government work crippled on this and now
3:08 am
reports on the deadlock that could spark a domino effect around the world. this self-inflicted shutdown is causing panic around the world as washington scrambles to avoid default the global economy is at risk of being thrust back into recession well at home millions want to cut their losses either way deal or no deal businesses that were unable to work at full capacity for public sector contracts which will see delays and payment and unemployment which is already on the rise due to the shutdown but possibly the most ironic thing about this government shutdown now in its third week is that it's not saving money it's costing america at least one hundred sixty million dollars a day and given the crisis has entered its fifteenth day the overall cost could be as much as two and a half billion dollars and that number of course is expected to grow in the political debate is hampering a rise in the debt ceiling but also leaving sick americans out in the cold for each
3:09 am
week of the shutdown hundreds of patients cannot be accepted for treatment at the national institutes of health including cancer patients seventy five percent of the staff is not working because of the shutdown and it's the patients in need of medical treatment that are suffering that are is are outraged at the closing of public parks and more monuments due to this shutdown the government has run out of cash to pay some eight hundred thousand federal workers during the deadlock over the weekend thousands came out in d.c. and stormed the barricades at a world war two memorial calling for the government to stop using veterans as political pawns in this battle for the budget while another group of retired military personnel are set to protest here in washington d.c. this week again starting their rally at that war memorial the department of veterans affairs is seeing the backlog a disability disability claims grow along with the frustration and uncertainty
3:10 am
among the military community also prominent faith leaders are set to join locked out workers at republican offices to pray. day and march for an end to the shutdown they're expected to call attention to each representative stance on the debt ceiling encouraging them to vote to end this standoff so as this sat down continues we are seeing more and more protests in the capital and more people in different groups demanding the government do their job and get a budget passed the executive director at the american jobs alliance told us how lawmakers have a knack for intimidating the public did not win the nobel prize in economics today you may have noticed but it does seem to be that it could have quite a catastrophic effect we're talking about global economic financial chaos is what he described and. i prefer not to play roulette like that the depths of human folly are fathomless but we're talking about

a tourist somali pirate leader who was captured after falling for a bike and a belgian police. the son freely and available to everyone since the dawn of time not any more spain's planning to tax it to help plug its yawning debt for its reports. there's an argument hotting up in spain right now the country still mired in financial difficulty the government's come up with a rather unusual proposal calling for attacks on solar energy with some spanish cities enjoying an average of three thousand hours of sun each year the nation's been one of the leading providers of solar energy the trouble is they're pretty things so much that production capacity now exceeds the market by sixty percent and that's when the government found itself in debt to producers to the cina twenty six billion euro so in

a bid to scale back the use of solar panels the government decided to tax those who use the in other words taxing the very behavior they spent the last decade trying to encourage critics of the proposal say this would damage claims progress towards meeting european renewable energy goes and could set a dangerous precedent for other struggling e.u. countries like greece who are remiss to be contemplating a similar tax playings energy regulator agrees and has cooled the proposed toll economically viable and discriminatory those who have been most blindsided by the idea of people like pedro he invested his money. in installing a solar panel in his home. with the new taxes they're making it cheaper to buy your energy from the big companies rather than use the power from your panels the government argues that the tax is fair as those using solar energy still require the use of the conventional energy grids and say this tax will contribute to the
3:23 am
cost of maintenance but the solar lobby say the new tax will extend the time it takes for solar panels to pay for themselves from eight to twenty five years as for the fine that could be levied if people like don't pay up well that's being set at a mind boggling thirty million euro i already know people who are removing the. protesters say that simply to scare people into submission but as to whether it's working for perjury i think you're going to pay that. the laws against your rights you have the right to refuse to do with the government tells you i'm going to continue with and i'm not going to be attacked with such strong resistance across the sunny state spain's government may have a fight on its hands and could be left wondering if the proposed tax is such

lived you would see the majority of people going into early retirement and not working at all and sort of like how they tell people not to feed the bears at parks because then the bears lose their instincts and will go hunt because getting a sandwich thrown at them is a lot easier i mean why go through the effort of auditing when the sandwich just magically appears handouts often creates law according to reuters some people are proposing a much better law for switzerland limiting executive pay to being twelve times higher than that of the lowest paid employee although this point isn't making headlines it seems like a much better idea because it doesn't to motivate people to be productive and yet it would create almost utopia like levels of wealthy quality also if the bosses salary is tied to the employees that a lot of people be getting raises very soon this one to twelve p. ratio is much better than the free swiss francs and it gets my seal of approval but that's just my opinion.
