the halfway stage the two final runs are today and when we caught up with them they told. what was needed to go so i think the critical juncture will be at the start line if one team is far ahead of the others it will be very difficult to catch up with them but we are prepared for such a scenario and number one objective is to be stronger at the start next the piloting skills cricket you need to see where you can outmaneuver your rivals you have to do for perfectly successful runs in a row to overcome your opponents well they've done to you let's hope they can do two more meanwhile for the jamaican bobsled team incidentally who are making their first appearance in just over a decade in that event last although they did receive the second biggest cheer of the night after the russians now all eyes are on russian figure skaters again this time in the ice dance a leaky customers are currently third in the freedoms to come and when we spoke to them just before these games started they told us what they thought was necessary
5:07 am
to succeed. i think is going to be there. the most important thing before the olympics because there's so much topic talking so much people to help or who don't want to help and you need to just do your work work and do what you want. to listen to other people like so many people just listen for your team like you're preparing and they know what. i hope is going to work. they stay focused because it certainly seems to be working at the moment i do love ice dancing it is a bit like a ballroom dancing on ice they say it is never a p.c. to watch but rest assured i'm sure the russians will be busting a gut inside to try and catch the canadians virtue and moir and the americans davis and white you currently lead the charge to go to one of the most inspiring stories from the sochi olympics is that of canadian athlete danny morrison who has won bronze and silver despite having suffered serious injury speed skater broke his leg
5:08 am
while skiing barely a year ago putting his olympic dreams in doubt morrison felt to make the cut. the one thousand meter distance by fellow speed skater gilmore jr offered him a spot in the race and he ended up taking silver that was closely followed by bronze in the fifteen hundred long track distance we asked the victorious canadian what drives him. i don't know i think for me the secrets been. not caring as much not trying to control things that are completely control and i try to control things that are not even important things that are superstitions just focusing on the task. the process solution of the process of being the most southern host city in winter olympic history so she's warm temperatures offers an additional challenge to athletes we've seen complaints of the slopes being too slushy today a couple of events cancelled but on the bright side sochi is cast have had
5:09 am
a chance to enjoy the unique surroundings as artie's martin enters the point known as the russian riviera sochi is not your typical russian city which is sort she's docked to be dozens of rivers streams and want to force across its boss countryside but not on a more impressive than this scary so it's out with the olympics and even with the spectacular fireworks and for a ninety minute journey from the olympic park highlights the diversity of this region ok it's not my grass or a grassy but it really is very pretty here and quite relaxing ranging from one to twelve metres there are over thirty other waterfalls seven rapids and first team cascades in this area alone also i think their journey from the beautiful caucasus mountains offering the perfect break from the hustle and bustle of the city the best time to visit the falls is in the spring when the melting snow brings a rush of water. this is one of the features of the sochi

5:13 am
and it's now a how to make seven zero in on the bus tomorrow let me take you same for sochi twenty four take. on r.t. . coming out that they sol and also international their own barrow pressure of big bank a. few look at their actual life they can be fired in five minutes this is a deeply dysfunctional system the financial wall is shaken by a series of serious signs of the recent two weeks i'll see international looks at why someone is trying to deal with the high stakes competition. low cholesterol preeminence depression. these are tricks to look good and to prove your lies. are you
5:14 am
see. form those that's. running you on arts or. dramas the truth be ignored. stories others refuse to notice. food since changing the world right now. filled picture of today's new blood on demand from around the globe. broke to. the. well. it's technology innovation all the developments around russia we've got the future of covered.
5:15 am
you're watching also international life from moscow welcome back there's been a string of bizarre deaths in the globe's financial circles in the past few weeks five high profile bankers have died also on the part so science. investigates there are untimely deaths grabbed headlines three of which happened within a week be it the big investment banks they work for the senior positions they held the public nature of their deaths or all three once again it raised questions. about an industry largely blamed for bringing the global economy to its knees and a two thousand and eight financial crisis michael taylor a former goldman sachs bond salesman who calls himself a recovering banker knew this world well it's so extraordinarily competitive and so
5:16 am
focused profit above all in so transactional that every moment like pressure turns carbon into diamonds you know extreme pressure can both accelerate human achievement and some cases break people the pressure and calling the shots the form of banking we've got the moment has no interest in the people it affects. because in a sense legally responsible to investors and stockholders you make a moral decision without thinking about the impact that it has on the people job losses people losing their home and so on and so forth pressure to rake in profits or the pressure to put in more hours than your peers after the spate of recent deaths big firms did try to ease tension by telling their junior staff to take more time off or at least to try not to work on weekends it's kind of a disconnect between how they have the weekend off also to make this a ton of money and ultimately making a ton of money is what's going to keep you around so now you strike me as
5:17 am
a real solution you're a sly and spent a year demystifying bankers interviewing dozens of fine us workers on the condition of anonymity the degree to which bankers are trapped has been really a really important finding i think we keep on projecting this idea on bankers as masters of the universe we have everything we want but if you look at their actual lives they can be fired in five minutes this is a deeply dysfunctional and ought to be abusive system so there is this real taboo in banking like the army to own up to one soldier but it. does or so your r t one did. and on line team has plenty of stories lined up for you on our website including a report revealing that drug alcohol and sexual abuse in the u.s. military has been getting worse over the last three years why the trend line down on c dot com. and also about obama's administration is under fire again this time
5:18 am
over the unprecedented number of diplomatic posts being handed to campaign contributors instead of career diplomats more details on that story out just a click away. britain's intelligence. britons who went to fight the regime of bashar al assad in syria have returned home and pose a serious threat of terrorism among the fears is that they could recruit even more young people willing to launch attacks in the u.k. and the ruled and for more let's not cross live. here is in london for us so as far as we understand sorry an estimated two hundred and fifty highly trained men have returned from the war torn region what level of concern is that for britain security. well that report being carried in the sunday times and the two hundred fifty. returned to a now back in britain much higher than was previously estimated and of course
5:19 am
that's causing huge concern here amongst the security services and the huge scale of the challenge really that is presenting british security services and other port also claimed that m i five and police had stopped one serious put last also involving a cell of attorney jihad is planning a mumbai style gun attack in london now there's been a huge concern for a long time and it is something artie's reported on very closely about the concern around the number of british citizens that have been traveling out to join the conflict in syria this report obviously causing huge concern because this is about the people who've returned back to home soil now if you can't feel my back to last week with the reports of the british citizen abdul wahid. he's thought to be the first british citizen to have carried out a suicide attack on aleppo prison and now the issue there was that
5:20 am
obviously he's been able to travel over into that country his family had reportedly said he joined a humanitarian aid convoy but was causing such big concern is that obviously we're seeing these attacks taking place and these fighters gaining skills and becoming is thought to eat it it's for war and the concern is that the return east will be returning with these skills that could then be used to carry out attacks in britain now the police have said that they've made a number of arrests and they're monitoring the situation closely indeed genuine it's thought that sixteen arrests have been made of people having returned back the irony here of course is that when you think about the british government's. i want the assad regime to go they've been pushing for transition and they've been supplying non-lethal aid to the rebels as they technically they are on the same
5:21 am
side as d.g. harvests who are fighting the assad regime and the british fighters who have joined those to harvest that concern that of course is that the prescribed terrorist groups the isis gentleness were of the british system instead of joining these groups that the real worry is that obviously was there fighting with the as we said they gain the skills they're becoming indoctrinated and the real worry is that once the fights in syria they finish their they could return home and then the target could become. live from london sam many thanks indeed for that object. the pentagon is pumping in cash to boost its military presence in africa the u.s. as by pouring in troops weapons and mercenaries it intends to turn a land of conflict into a land of hope u.s. military bases in are spread across the whole of the horn of africa and drone bases are dotted across the region with the biggest in djibouti hosting over four
5:22 am
thousand military personnel and contractors and thousands of u.s. soldiers are reportedly preparing for missions as part of the pentagon's new strategy to train and advise original forces so she's policy a look now at what could really be motivating america's new found focus on the region. hundreds of millions of american dollars are flowing into africa as the pentagon upset spending on the continent there's plenty of moment to realize here nigeria a case in point the west african nation is america's fourth largest supplier of crude oil accounting for eleven percent of all u.s. oil imports we have made a lot of investment in. they have invested so much in the oil sector and they need to protect that and that believes rafsanjani is the real reason for u.s. troop expansion in africa not to bring democracy not to help the local populations
5:23 am
but to protect american interests and justify the reasons for being here the governess in order to in order. you know accountability. and of course you know it's the definitive kind of make up it's got crisis in the country. you know it is to me it in terms of i'm going to come part of policy reasons to actually come into nigeria africa is dotted with u.s. bases and a growing constellation of small american drone outposts camp north of somalia has been america's main facility on the continent for nearly a decade it houses about four thousand military and civilian personnel but at the end of last year it was forced to stop flying drones in the area after a string of crashes and growing anger from locals problem is u.s. forces are getting stretched very thin they're being tasked with missions that well
5:24 am
beyond their numerical logistics capability right now and the danger will then trigger they go forward and. new conflicts expand and all of the next thing you know those. troops and money to sustain these missions u.s. secretary of state john kerry says that's happening in africa so exciting overall and we are really deeply engaged and the president has instructed us to really try to. light our fire under our efforts throughout the county but what's not so exciting is the growth of jihadists and anti wasting groups across the continent thousands of american soldiers are gearing up for missions as part of the pentagon's new strategy to train and advise african militaries to deal with the threat it's not impressing those who live here is going
5:25 am
to be the americans of feel to combat terrorism in afghanistan or anywhere else and the same will happen here in west africa it's likely the. the prisons even bring the terrorist threat to the synagogue but the president does this calculation saying well this will allow me to be a good friend of the united states maybe attract some investment or strengthen my security forces that from the point of view of the senegalese people we risk losing our north a lot is a number of african leaders have expressed concern about the potential militarization of the continent fearful that america's expanding presence will bode badly for africa and have people. on the back of the news assessment it's time.
5:26 am
i just first state of the city address new york mayor bill de blasio said that he would put forward legislation for the city to issue special municipal identification cards to undocumented immigrants he summed up his feelings by saying to all my fellow new yorkers who are undocumented i say new york city is your home too and we will not force any of our residents to live their lives in the shadows yeah that sounds nice but the reason these illegal immigrants live their lives in the shadows is because they immigrated illegally why should new yorkers bend over
5:27 am
backwards for illegal criminal immigrants this is the same logic that if i catch a guy breaking into my house as a gracious host i should offer him a pizza because it's his. home to this is not just a slap in the face to rule of law but also to the immigrants who do go through the bureaucracy and headaches to become u.s. citizens the right way the legal way so the blasio if you're going to provide these illegal immigrants with some sort of document it should be a plane ticket back home with instructions on how to apply for a green card the legit proper way just like everyone else has to fashion just my opinion.
5:28 am
for them rather than inventing new powerful remedies. for the real ills that plague humanity to commend the like cancer and hypertension. the drug industry has found an easier way to maintain profit six percent pay. it invents illnesses to. to treat them pows it offers an effect of drugs but that doesn't matter because no one sick with no medicine from out at.
