it doesn't need money to spread it spreads by itself everywhere in the world not only in lebanon but in america britain serbia. here radical ideas of bread from a young age fighters here call a card as bin laden a teacher and their fight jihad. when twenty three year old med returned from syria where he joined the free syrian army he continued his jihad here in lebanon. target the district where she'll leave tripoli is divided into sunni and shia parts ironically by the street called syria two years ago we filmed on that street by street in the city of tripoli separates alawite and sunni neighborhoods in this part of north running like a merger between those who support the syrian president and his regime and those who want him out today we can't get the cache sometimes oh. who do you fight against who is your enemy i'm addicted to my fight against them
for those those who don't carry that for go far eleven is probably the war spillover of the syrian conflict and while the world is hoping for peace to come back to that middle east country war seems to only spread further on. people here seem to be used to seeing fighters carry sniper rifles through busy markets they tell us everybody here has a weapon and is ready to fight. it will come to these camps outside you will see every day to raise a little good love the first told us that it doesn't take well you know someone who is here experienced become a real fighter. a week's training and you are in for a life time of obedience rosario rules for those who want to become one day dean you have to forget about money and be ready to die or to be arrested and to accept that no one will take care of you or your family lek jihadi flags on the walls
weapons on the floor this is the life of a true fighter. it's tough and the rules are strict as hunches eola who introduced himself as a tripoli sunni leader says many yous are willing to join didn't live here from now until i grow up i'm ready to defend myself i'm ready to kill alawite and syrian army and you're into q four remember that. this week. and while the syrian conflict expands a legion of fighters on to these deadly weapons and an even deadly ideology is on the rise. from lebanon activists say al qaeda linked rebels have killed more than forty people in a village in central syria and is the latest reported atrocity committed by extremists in the walls on global trends for constant child to lend he says calving
radical ideology is the real fight. so who is this out qaeda is al-qaeda the guy that that prime minister tony blair and president bush said that saddam hussein had ties to or is it the al qaeda that were in that dangerous or die hard al qaeda or or dangerous islamised so we don't really know where these people are but from what i see and from what i know from what i read and for what i learn these are just disparate gangs of murderers and criminals it's a moral issue at a military issue and that's the only way it's going to be solved. and as the syrian conflict rages the country's busiest month ling its chemical arsenal in accordance with international agreements a third bunch of toxic material has been shipped out for decommissioning say were
recently missed several deadlines to hand over its chemicals saying rebel activity will still blame but damascus maintains it will meet the u.n. by its roadmap to design its toxic i also know why during. coming out this hour it's my just be there right time for some house hunting. break for us it's. a british town puts homes up for sale for just one pound look at what's driving the local council to let them go so next to nothing. it's a busy day for in seoul train with eight sets of medals up for grabs today canada is on top of the medal table at the moment and there's been no podium success for the harvest so far however that doesn't mean there's nothing to trouville the home crowd and she's a nice in our reports from. the competition. every day brings
new reasons for celebration here in sochi but the russian's women's curling team has moved a step closer to medal success beating their american rivals let's get the details from our andrew farmer well there has been more success for the russian women's curling team they've beaten the americans nine seven to record their second win in a row and a bit later on will turn out again to face the chinese and also a bit later on we'll get another glimpse of the figure skating stars maksim and tatiana. they've already won team gold and are favorites for the pairs event which does get underway this evening it's also worth noting that they are world and european champions despite only being together for three years and despite. famous bad temper so what is the secret of their success over such a short space of time or maybe just maybe it could be written in the stars i was familiar with some of what seems to treat. my zodiac sign is gemini and lexeme is
a libra so we get along just fine. when we first started skating together i told her to know that more than half of what people say about my personality is probably true as 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 well also today look out for the names of nikita crew called from the men's cross country skiing and also. in the biathlon on the first medal of today again when the canadians it went in style skiing and that really does cement their place at the top of the medals table and not long ago actually the sisters from canada displaying the gold and silver medals they. in the moguls at the
weekend we cool top with that of the system maxi he told us he's made a comparison between the vancouver games four years ago and the sochi games not because i am kidding and it was own soil in vancouver dares to flee an intensity level different. where in russia so the russians are at home and whenever a russian is skiing down the course they proudly go and say it wasn't as intense for canadians or other athletes but in some ways i think it was kind of a relief kind of feel how i came here to is very exciting the night of the event the crowd was there there was some fear so definitely olympic by going on saki is also expected to steal the show at the sochi olympics and it's promising to be one of the most exciting torments in years we caught up with russian hockey legend legend. of who is a two time olympic gold medalist to find out what his hopes are for the russian
team being big mature and. just you know i mean for gold for the ocean and all kind of qualities to do so. for. good growth and. good coaching style for growth experience. in a big big competitions. really will support their fans. can get lots of pressure. to be in the home eyes abroad. to know how to handle the pressure going out to be under pressure. from a good luck and they expect the gold medal from just. this russian team the winter olympics in sochi have been making headlines around the globe but not necessarily about the competition many news outlets have set the alarms ringing over the alleged terrorist threat that's just by russia's unprecedented security operation.
let's also not forget the never ending tales about the saudi hotels and bad organisation while very few missed the opportunity to deliver horror stories about the rounding up of the stray dogs well it has dismissed such coverage as an echo of the cold war code in 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 so when russia demonstrates a positive development it's clear that the appearance of new powerful players and competitors in genders some of fear them in areas such as the economy politics and security attempts to contain russia emerge here or there including with the olympic project the man snowboarding half pipe 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 may 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 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 month's on the big opening this is just beautiful it's been fun we came up skiing the other day a couple days off 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 snowboarding it's inception as an established winter sport it's developed various styles each with. own specialized
equipment and technique snowboarding and he became a winter sport in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight ranging from the stunts of freestyle to the fast pace racing of slope style used for both recreation and professional snowboarding it's my first time and it's not as easy as it looks but it's a little bit confusing as i've been told that i'm left footed even though i'm right handed i said in the same three position was pushed forward and the first foot that i fell on was the direction i should go wish me luck. there are around one hundred thousand risk of fractures worldwide among snowboarders each year i'm not going to be a statistic to me and my instructor says he can teach someone to be a recreational snowboarder in one or two days with the ability to use all lifts perform controlled link turns control speed and direction and stop confidently something i'm having trouble with the slopes are busy now with locals and visitors
from all over the world but what's the future of the region after the olympics i think it will be best through the. summer times because all of only because objects. connected in the one large groups of 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 in sochi and great i'm enjoying them but i'm trying not to go too far so i don't get knocked down it's risky at my age where she's not known for its alpine skiing or snowboarding and might not be very good at it but it's an activity that's on the rise and as the professional snowboarders with their various of them pick medals on this very mountain it seems that some of us were not born for such winter. martin and there is a. will keep you up to date on everything happening at the sochi winter games

to. welcome back to r.t. international let's move on now a number of coordinated on to n.s.a. proust has done taka gatherings taking place around the globe have been dubbed the day refined by the naacp says one month since this suicide of internet freedom poster boy adam schwartz a tragedy that many believe was provoked by america's security response his gun at each account tells a story of the computer prodigy aaron swartz could have been a millionaire living now in silicon valley when he was just fourteen aaron helped launch the first artist says feet which deliver web content aaron by the time he turned nineteen his company had merged with take a look at it which would become one of the most popular websites in the world. but money was not his ultimate call aaron went down to champion
a fleet internet it's common sense and it's the foundation of our constitution the government is constrained by having someone else check off to make sure they're not abusing their power aaron became a political activist calling for others to join this isn't something playing out on stage somewhere where big giants fight each other and you get to see much popcorn this is a fight you can join in right so if you're going to demand progress dot org and sign up we have actions every week there are bills that are coming up that could crack down on internet freedom there are companies trying to abuse their power and it's up to all of us to stop them aaron swartz drew the f.b.i.'s attention in two thousand and eight when he downloaded and released about three million federal court documents from a restricted service the government did not press charges because the documents were in fact public he was arrested in two thousand and eleven for downloading academic articles from a subscription based research website at his university with the intention to make them available to the public. although none of what he downloaded was classified
prosecutors wanted to put him in jail for thirty five years when he saw all of his wealth gone and he recognized his parents were going to have to mortgage their house so he could afford a lawyer to fight a government that treated him as if he were nine eleven terrorists as if it as if what he was doing was threatening the infrastructure of the united states when he saw that he recognized how how incredibly difficult that fight was going to be of course he was depressed at the age of twenty six aaron swartz took his own life. this was somebody who was pushed through. by what i think of as a kind of bullying by our government it was several months after his death that edward snowden blew the whistle on the government's widespread snooping showing that while the government wants everyone to be open and transparent it can go relentlessly after someone who fully embrace the idea of transparency and accessibility of information like aaron swartz did in washington i'm going to check
out. and of course we're following the un's n.s.a. unction online it for you and also waiting for you that. rainfall call the u.k.'s largest rebirth some sort of bust of winds causing damage estimated at a billion dollars in gold that was the pictures of the biblical flood. could something similar happen on mars and image released by nasa challenges the long held believe that the red planet has been dry for billions of years find out what that discovery could mean. across race and house prices are soaring out of reach for ordinary people apart from one town where you can get a home for just a pound and all you have to do is give it a make over and promise to live in it his point. 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 this sort of applied just sort of to the blue really because i was saving up for a mortgage and things anyway which when you run to me is quite hard. but yes i use quite shortly you know i actually did go out which actually great for us because we did a house for problems in. 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 can 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 poultry stock trees started closing down people had to move forward so the communities start to
disperse or this area is 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 this is what one pound will buy you on century street in stoke on trent now on top of that one pound owners have to commit to borrowing thirty thousand pounds from the local council for the renovations and work has already started on transforming these abundant shells and turning them into brand new properties and through hey can see what they're going. 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 of a tree with how. many people can get up to 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. auti stoke on trent. and coming up after the break financial revelations in britain pounced with aaron and. 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 a big t. and africa they basically say that that need of books to fill he's not fit for the government of the of the needs of the baldwin become prime minister they also mentioning 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 a 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 then 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 enemy that justifies a korean regime change there is no such anime a fascist my opinion. oh there i'm marinated this is boston these are the stories that we're tracking for you today. first up a condom is georgia's belgian a one of the founders of the school of modern free banking theory joins us to talk about inflation the good the bad and the ugly then after that we had a boom bust favorite financial pundit and investor kyle harrington on today's show
you won't want to miss it and finally edward harrison and i talk to coin in today's big deal a lot has happened with the cryptocurrency over the past couple weeks and we're taking a look at all of it now let's get to the shell. our lead story today dealing picks more specifically coverage of the twenty fourteen olympic games in the digital age now i'd like to start off by saying that i am not a fan of reporting on the news and i do try to avoid it at all costs however the proverbial cost of this story exceeded my standard threshold for such types of reporting so here we go now estimates are putting n.b.c.'s total olympic profits at a cool one billion dollars with
a cost of about seven hundred seventy five million to pay for the rights and another hundred million to produce it now with all that money on them. one may ask why why would a network be so foolish as to not air the opening ceremonies live and then added a different version of those same ceremonies for primetime does n.b.c. not know about the internet do you think hard to hard to figure it out now n.b.c. makes money on the olympics by increasing the numbers of hours of coverage they air something that broadcasters of one off events like say the super bowl cannot do this year and b.c. will broadcast five hundred thirty nine hours of t.v. with another thousand hours streaming online now olympic ad time is much cheaper than super bowl time averaging around one hundred thousand dollars per spot but with two weeks worth of games this allows for a mass market approach to buying and selling of commercials now the olympics will see about eleven thousand run across n.b.c.'s various networks the thing is though
not airing those opening ceremonies live it bugged a lot of people and the move prompted an angry response on twitter and quickly popularized the hash tag n.b.c. phil not something you want to hear on b c and n.b.c. went seriously seriously overboard when they decided to block all live streams of the opening ceremonies on the internet so we get it n.b.c. you've got a monopoly on the olympics here's the thing though n.b.c. thinks viewers are so locked in that they can actually get away with this but in the process they're killing that goose that laid the one billion dollar golden egg people will remember this n.b.c. and if they don't the internet will remind them.
