1:03 am
that the country is economically and above all financially in the deepest crisis for decades and he goes on to say kiev needs money and a steady gas supply suggesting that's why they're leaning towards russia at this time publicly the e.u. continues to cool kiev the agreement will remain on the table into the eleventh hour allowing the end of the opportunity for an improbable late u. turn but we kiev requesting more money and brussels finances already strained it could be a while yet before ukraine starts taking e.u. advances seriously got r.t. in the meantime leaders are now saying that an agreement could be possible when a new president comes to power in ukraine and even planned to hold meetings with ukraine's opposition on the sidelines of the summit in lithuania but little which they've done an aide for the leader of france's national front he says the e.u. simply put should not be meddling in kiev's internal matters. along with this image

what does the european union have to offer when it is politically divided when its depth is rising unemployment rate rising what exactly do we have to offer even in terms only of markets and economies i'm not sure it's a good deal at all anyway for a train today and people have elements guests today debating ukraine's rejected a u. bid and just how attractive the deal was for kiev in the first place but of course in today's edition of cost. the fact is the european union doesn't have money to hand out ukraine needs an awful lot of money and everyone knows that the european union and its member states are broke they have debt up to their eyeballs and they can't afford to pay their own bills let alone other people's both russia and the european union like integration with ukraine but unocal overture to the end of the day just said it's not a good enough deal i think the only quality of government trying to probe and see

1:17 am
that over the course of five years those that have benefited from q e have been the richest people in the united states of the richest companies the richest banks in the majority of americans are not benefiting from this and why is still continuing the problem is. the fed at this point is the only one doing something and so it feels like it keeps on having to do something to help mild to the argument is what it's doing is it not only helping but it may actually be hurting for four more dramatic u.s. economy. in the meantime with us burra was increasingly missing about credit payments it means interest rates are about to go through the roof of the publisher of trends journal gerald celente he warns of grave consequences the only reason there is any recovery going on in the united states or for that matter the european zone is that interest rates are at record lows so as i mentioned you could

buy an automobile with zero percent and what there go it what's going to happen when interest rates go up the housing market again collapses the auto market collapses and worse than that the bond market collapses and so you're going to start seeing a decline again in people paying mortgages more foreclosures happening and that's when interest rates go up because when interest rates go up this phony recovery we have in the housing market is going to stop and a lot of the new people that got into the market are going to have trouble paying off their mortgages. the web lined up plenty of stories for you on the website including the black hole. in fact it's a brand new submarine which is being dubbed with this name for being virtually undetectable underwater at all the details in the pictures of this very impressive

1:25 am
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 support the olympics having the majority of the countries on earth participating they're now horribly horribly bland one could argue that they have become a great way for countries to show why. for ex used to build up some infrastructure by i think this is a big misconception let's look back to the two thousand lympics and beijing china has really developed in the last twenty years but they 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
1:26 am
a swiss company yeah i have 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 then the olympics will become worth watching but for now it's just generic sports from generic countries of generic stadiums but that's just my opinion. ukraine a country divided its government's decision not to pursue integration with the european union and for russia instead as western politicians and media in an uproar brussels feel snubbed while moscow has a wait and see approach as ukrainian politics is anything but stable the so-called struggle for ukraine is far from over.
1:27 am
there's one thing that i still can't understand thank you i don't want to ruin your good mood but i have this one question what do you doing this so for. listen to me you had everything. respect authority he gave them all know you decided to go your way but what for. it was a wait and for him he tried to restrain himself and find his place in society in spite of this disease. but look here in the first out anyway is that if. you're sitting in a really puts me off that i have such a father. if the warming up to it was one small but very great secret that i have to live with.
1:28 am
go along i am a transsexual woman as we're now i'm going through a transition period the so-called hormonal stage when i need to adjust to society as a woman that's why i need to change my sex and my passport in the past but. there's been no surgery as you know no not yet it's very expensive and i don't have enough money with your money to the right amount first and with the name you already overdose of in my passport people treat me as though i'm a non-person and i can't find a job lawyer as you don't even believe it's really my passport. here's substantiate your claim with a number of medical reports could you present them to me so far you have only presented a medical report from professor going to check us clinic or so i thought that
1:29 am
report would be enough if i didn't think i'd need anything else if you refer to it as a medical statement than you need to have a document proving this clinic really is a magic oregon has ation authorized to issue such reports. i don't have such a document will you be able to present it yes i think so when will you be able to present it like concern exact date i'll have to submit a request in five days ten how many. about ten probably it's hard to say exactly the cases are joined to the ninth of september if the clinic refuses to provide you with the necessary documents the court will sign an inquiry. didn't it surprise you that they claim you could go into a request from the group yes it did i don't know why they didn't reply it's so strange i can't comment i don't know why.
