5:05 am
still to come on the program there is no such thing as an editor as an israeli well on paper at least just ahead we look at how a group of campaign is a calling for the recognition of national identity. now what does it take to make a fully functional gun at home well as technology advances it seems just a three d. printer will do the job in the us critics are warning that development has reached a dangerous point with time running out before metal desktop printer is hit the consumer market r.t.s. miniport i find much of a game changer it could be. rhett's shooting range in austin texas is normally packed with gun enthusiasm. today the difference
5:06 am
is that these men are firing rounds with a do it yourself firearm the world's first three d. printed metal gun we wanted to showcase the abilities of what direct metal can do and what a better way than find something that can withstand a bunch of heat tolerance accuracy all wrapped into one which in america everybody knows which is a par. eric much later is a project coordinator at solid concepts a company specializing in three d. printing game prints are in the arts he was granted an exclusive tour of their austin facility which boasts ten three d. industrial printers and a glimpse of our technological future these are all the three d. printed parts that went into making this bar after getting a federal firearms license the company used a process called direct metal laser simpering to produce this browning nine hundred eleven pistol takes about twenty five to thirty five hours depending on the machine
5:07 am
we put it on and what materials were grown in. this three d. printing and metal gun has fired over one thousand rounds in the meantime solid concepts has manufactured its second nineteen eleven firearm we plan on making a few more prototypes for additional testing. we don't we don't plan on going into full production of these we can afford to sell them. at the price of be required to get our money back while the prices of many three d. printers have fallen below one thousand dollars solid concepts insists the stainless steel firearm they've introduced to the world can't be replicated by hobbyists these machines start at six hundred thousand and go up to a million dollars they need to be in. industrial environments they require more electricity than is available in residential areas and they require inert gases in the chamber that are just not commonly available so it's definitely an industrial
5:08 am
commercial type process and it will be years before metal printers become available on the consumer market if at all not exactly the world's first mini metal maker has already been created it prints using precious metal clay and with laser centering patterns set to expire in february it's predicted that metal desktop printers will hit the consumer market before you know it five years you know small this is going to do it maybe five years after that you starts a whole workshops and and you know having one on your desktop at home so we are going there there's a technology exists the price will come down. as the world has learned the convenience of technology has a downside we all loved the internet cell phones e-mail and social media before finding out that our beloved data is being monitored and stored by the n.s.a. . the astonishing capability of three d. metal printers is no longer a secret. so when they become
5:09 am
a part of our household tap alongside the microwave and flat screen t.v. . what people choose to physically create in the privacy of their home. will be beyond the control of the u.s. government going up or ny at r.t. texas and here's what the first three d. far on look like it was created in the media here in the technology has come a long way in just a few months it's now possible to make something that looks and works like a real weapon but the biggest threat is that firearms can i be disguised thus according to engineering expert hardships and. it's a very universal kind of technology that can be used in lhasa different ways some some good some not so good but it is alarming that people have started printing guns i would say the most dangerous thing is let's say a gun that doesn't look like a gun but looks like
5:10 am
a flower vase or something else and so that this this ability to make things in any shape and form really defies a lot of the conventional thinking around regulating guns around detecting them and so forth and i think that's sort of it's a whole new world when it comes to controlling these kinds of things. just ahead in the program pill popping is so worrying in the u.k. we find out why the fruits of consuming more antidepressants than almost any other european nation that story in a couple of minutes. when the crisis leaves us traces everywhere. close rooms become the norm. children pay for the mistakes of adults. by word unit tobacco fields.
5:11 am
they are the ones who come back home blasts. so his games are just in their memories. all of. these college face. a pleasure to have you with us here on t.v. today i'm sure. that again i while the olympic torch continues that freckle breaking trip to sochi

development says the number of doses of antidepressants being prescribed in the u.k. has doubled in the last ten years britain now has the seventh highest prescribing rate in the western world for drugs like prozac higher than france germany and much of mainland europe some health experts put that down to overworked doctors prescribing drugs when therapy would be more effective some say we feel we don't have time to be depressed so we take drugs looking for a quick fix but the depression alliance reckons it's at least in part due to the effects of the economic downturn i think there are people that have come forward whose lives have been hit very badly by by losing jobs and not been able to get into jobs young people trying to get started and then finding that the financial pressures that they're under has meant that they just are not getting off the starting blocks that may need an economic recovery will mean a return to mental health too and until then the u.k.

5:21 am
first and what is the news from sochi at the moment. hi and yes indeed i am here in sochi and the president of the region has just announced that it's to go ahead and sochi is a ready to host the olympics and paralympics twenty forty let's take a listen to what he had for. almost everything is done and when i say almost it means that only some final touches need to be major shift. right or so as you heard there the president is quite happy as to the progress of everything that's happened here in terms of the infrastructure the transport system the hotels at the stadiums that will host both of the olympics and paralympics athletes now i've been going around to the city to see for myself if indeed everything is ready and i can tell you from where we're standing from the city
5:22 am
itself looks a little bit more like a majar me thirty and upgrade for source the city while the mountainous class is starting to shape up as the swiss alps are. thirty four skiers and the likes that it's intended to become now we've day in terms of the president and everybody who's been gathered here today to talk about the upcoming olympics we've talked about to they've talked about the transport system in terms of how many buses will be and cars will be available for everybody who's going to be in at the olympic city they're going to be around seven thousand people who'll be helping out in the olympic village itself in terms of flights coming into so she more and more flights have now been arranged so that there's continuous flights coming into storage in terms of the paralympics of course the stadiums and hotels are ready to cater for those with disabilities as well as spectators and athletes so in general it looks like the mood here is the same we're ready as a russia as well as
5:23 am
a source so we're here to welcome the world come two thousand and fourteen next year great thanks tom began with just ten weeks to go to thanks very much that's probably more say for art in such. now a state without nationality might sound strange but for some it's reality people in israel cannot be documented by as being israeli and as artie's paula slade discovers united national identity could be an important step towards ending discrimination in the country the us has uncle sam russia has the bear france has maryon and israel has a question mark if nothing else it's weird in france you're french in the united states you're american in south africa you're south african but here in israel you
5:24 am
cannot be registered as israeli under the only law you can come from moscow. and demand to be registered nurse military. but you cannot. there mark. it's a totally absurd situation in israel's population which is st there are one hundred thirty five recognized nations people are listed as jew arab druze and more but never as israeli and the most seem ok with that it's a mountain the meaning is the same the nation is the jewish nation and it has the jewish nation state both in the proclamation of independence and the un resolution of november the twenty ninth one nine hundred forty seven which says that a jewish state would be formed not an israeli one if a person was to be identified as israeli in the national wage astri it would challenge the claim that israel is a jewish country something the supreme court is aware of as is all we have mary and
5:25 am
a group of israelis petitioning for change and there are jews a lot. different about form an arab citizen this is something to accept it's not democratic we want respect to belong to. all of us but for now the supreme court has dismissed the case leaving the debate on what is an israeli open for years it was truly created by one of the country's greatest caricaturists camile god dos better known as dorsch but slick is clearly jewish was a question of additional yet he came up with a young man because israel was still young state and slowly he created the new israeli national guard more with the sure what happened with their neighbors palestinians included but they weren't part of the character. like the registry cyrillic lives in a world where culture faith and history are more defining then once present and by all accounts it's likely to remain that way at least for the nearest future and
5:26 am
israel without israelis. r t hold on. children today as saying child labor in europe and just that. i hate to be a downer but i really think the olympics have lost all meaning in the past when there was the cold war it was like a battle between two ideologies taking place in the abstract and the one nine hundred thirty six olympics nazi pseudo science their self-proclaimed superiority was put on trial for the whole world to see and it's quite the olympics having the majority of the countries on earth participating there now horribly horribly bland
5:27 am
one could argue that they have become a great way for countries to show off their ex used to build up some infrastructure by think this is a big misconception let's look back to the two thousand a lympics in beijing yet china has really developed in the last twenty years but the olympics really teach us anything about this country with a radically different political system or anything about their ancient culture or the way they think or the way they live no nothing at all all we saw were some flags and some pandas that rather unique stadium which was mostly the work of a swiss company yeah i hate to say i think the olympic flame is kind of burnt out over the years although i have to admit that saying the torch in the space was kind of neat i think that when and if the world ever becomes an ideological battle ground again and then the olympics will become worth watching but for now it's just generic sports from generic countries a generic stadiums but that's just my opinion. the speaker is used to working with under-age boys he makes no secret of it. it's
5:28 am
easy yes yes it's true that there are so many asking me for work at least ten or twelve a week and they say they like the work they say it's a fine profession well it's true that it's a fine job. it's also tough. cycle freddo doesn't consider himself a child exploiter this boss of a small family business feels that the current crisis leaves him with no choice. i used to have three employees then little by little because of the rise in taxes an increase in fuel prices i ran into difficulties and had to let them all go and. of course one of the advantages of having these boys working here is that i save a bit on expenses. that include i have to say i'm still the one who ends up working the most since my sales are plummeting i'm forced to count on the kids. but i'm telling you if sales increased i'd immediately get a qualified worker who could lighten my load a little. here you are senora have
5:29 am
a great day. how many italian small business owners are taking advantage of this cheap labor force. according to recent estimates there are sixty thousand kids working in the naples region today. and the state what's the italian government doing about it. this is the headquarters of the labor inspection agency for companions. the director doesn't know the camera is already running he admits straight away that he's powerless. you see my figures on the control of under age workers are pathetic figures should reflect what we're doing about it but they're too weak look here in two thousand and eleven we only did controls on forty eight miners so you're going to tell us all about it now. you know i don't want to talk about it.
