her that more than half of what people say about my personality is probably true as she told me she could get along with pretty much anyone. whatever people say about my or someone else's personality figure skating is a sport and what matters is the result doesn't matter what my personality is like some would say about a coach for example he's insufferable the most important thing is my training and my performance and the medals i win which who cares if i'm a difficult person and there are a couple of other names she should look out for today. in the men's cross-country skiing and also know who's going for her second medal in the women's bio. is also expected to steal the show. at the sochi olympics and it's promising to be one of the most exciting torne him and in years we caught up with russian hockey legend legend fifty so who is a two time olympic gold medalist to find out what his hopes are for the russian team thing big. you know i mean for gold for the.

that's also not forget the never ending tales about the shoddy hotels and bad organization while very few missed the opportunity to deliver horror stories about the rounding up of the stray dogs while pledging their puts it has dismissed such coverage as an echo of the cold war putting the whole during the cold war era there was the so-called containment policy that's what it was called it was the policy and practice of containing the soviet union's development of unfortunately as we see now occasionally there are through backs to these policies every so often when russia demonstrates a positive development it's clear that the appearance of new powerful players and competitors engender some fear them in areas such as the economy politics and so. attempts to contain russia emerge here or there including with the olympic runner the man snowboarding have five final is one of the most anticipated medal events of the day crews are racing to smooth the course after complaints by some athletes the
slopes of sochi make currently be the olympic battleground right now but they promise to become a popular tourist destination after the games we send our teams martin andrews to sochi mountain closer to test what goes up must come down there's no better way to see the beautiful caucasus mountains and zooming down the slopes taking the breathtaking scenery and marvel in the vast resorts and facilities they now have here as you know the famous phrase when road so it's on with the boots and off to the slopes at krasnaya polyana a totally transformed area of this months and the big opening this is just beautiful it's been fun we came up skiing the other day a couple days of between work and sochi and adler and corky all came together nicely when we got here is a little and then end up in a couple days a hammer it out it's really cool since no boardings inception as an established winter sport it's developed various styles each with its own specialized equipment

world but what's the future of the region after the olympics i think it will be best through there to russia for skiing through the summer times because all of only because objects. connected in the one large resort people of all ages come here to the slopes fifty kilometers from the black sea coast the perfect way to exercise and to stay youthful. slopes and salty and great i'm enjoying them but i'm trying not to go too fast so i don't get knocked down it's risky at my age but she's not known for its alpine skiing or snowboarding might not be very good at it but it's an activity that's on the rise and as a professional snowboarders with their various olympic medals on this very mountain it seems that some of us were not born to such winter to tease martin embry's. but keep you up to date on everything happening out the sochi winter games

for less than the price of a cup of tea while it may sound like a joke considering the perceived high cost of british housing amazingly it's become a reality point to boycott reports now on what's behind a poundland fairy tale. one pound sterling doesn't buy you much nowadays but in stoke on trent lucky locals have managed to grab the ultimate bargain house it's part of a sell off of rundown properties in a deprived part of the city at this sort of apply just sort of to the blue really because i was saving up for a mortgage and things anyway which when you run time is quite hard. but yes i use quite shocked that you know i actually did go out which actually great for us because we did a house for problems. the snag many of the properties have stood abandoned for years after the closure of the city ceramic factories the area started to decline the roof sleeping every negative thing that you could imagine and two properties
all of my commute for those behaviors the workers of the patreas which is only walking distance who are all living here and then what happened was as the parties flock to started closing down people had to move forward so the communities start to disperse so this area's deprived it's riddled with antisocial behavior like drug abuse crime and squatting but the local councils say that the one pound scheme and the new owners moving in should help to create a sense of community and turn the area around. applicants have to be locals first time buyers and earning less than forty thousand pounds per year to avoid entrepreneurial property developers from taking advantage of the author homeowners have to commit to staying in the houses for at least ten years so this is what one pound will buy you on century street in stoke on trent now on top of that one pound on. to have to commit to boring thirty thousand pounds from the local council for
the reservations and work has already started on transforming these abundant shells and turning them into brand new properties and through here you can see what they're going to look like before the scheme came along like many britons gavin couldn't afford a deposit for a house and was paying more in rent then he will be in loan repayments to the council in ten years' time i'll be more free with how. not many people can get after ten years with the housing crisis leaving millions struggling to get on to the ladder many will now be crossing their fingers hoping they'll get a similar chance in their part of town. r.t. stoke on trent and in our brave glance at some other global news making headlines this hour in iraq or so sidebottom an instructor accidentally blew himself up in his own car bomb killing twenty one of his students after hearing the explosion

the alleged phone call between the assistant secretary of state and the u.s. ambassador to ukraine has created quite a controversy in the call like smug british colonisers cashless big t. and africa the basically say that that native box of phil he's not fit for the government of the of the needs of the baldwin become prime minister they also mention getting the help of the un to get this thing glued whatever that means although the authenticity of this phone call has not been confirmed but certainly hasn't been denied this reminds me a lot of the snowden leaks independent journalists for years had been writing about government spying but it took snowden to shove it into people's faces and confirm that it was really going on we've heard from people like ron paul jesse ventura and many journalists that the u.s. state department uses a horde of international grant receivers and local political organizations to try to consciously and directly control sovereign nations and overthrow regimes they
don't like and this phone call is legit that is the same level of undeniable evidence that snowden brought to the table to be fair during the cold war i could kind of see the justification to meddle in other countries so the soviets would create world communism but now who is the great enemy that justifies a korean regime change there is no such anime but that's just my opinion. in early september biotic northern sea is a busy maritime highway. all of russia's nuclear powered
icebreakers are at sea clearing a path for shipping. the crews here have a saying when you're in the arctic you have the whole world your feet. through follows russia's northern boundaries offering the shortest passage between europe and asia passing through seven northern cities. well then three hundred by horns. the nuclear time you leave. judge will.
spend four months patrolling the northern sea route despite passing through ten times and the crew will never adjust the ship's clock it's quite likely they'll never pull into a pool either and nor will the crew jealous. morning good morning yes it londa your beautiful well done don't forget your hat. sukhamoy has ruined my hair now. and the captain and the first officer said here they don't like holes in their bread systems and i have to put more bread out because the navigators sit here and they eat a lot. of the possibly the most unlike the tables to be.
