that is the set up here very excited by. kind of an artsy america charlottesville mourns the loss of heather higher killed and we can terrorism as cities throughout the country continue to remove statues with ties to the confederacy. well the u.s. abandoned their nuclear agreement with iran and bastards to the united nations nikki haley says all options are on the table. and we go into war torn syria where after years of terrorist oppression the situation is more dire.
it's wednesday august sixteenth five in washington d.c. and the taj suites and you're watching america well nearly a thousand people gathered to celebrate the life of heather higher virginia this morning for four days after she was killed by a car after a white supremacist rally was broken up by police. you never think you're going to bury your child this could i could have said let's don't do this publicly let's have a small private funeral but you know that's not how there was they tried to kill my child to shut her out well guess what you just magnified or. thank highers mother and other family and friends all spoke about the commitment to peace in the country where he says i'm governor terry mcauliffe was among several high profile officials there attendees wore purple highers favorite color she was thirty two two women also injured in the car. attack that higher died
in a lawsuit against the alleged attacker twenty year old james alex fields and the organizer of this weekend's rally jason kessler platonists mika and tad washington also named neo nazi activist richard spencer in the lawsuit seeking three million dollars in damages we will you know arrangements have been finalized for virginia state police pilot lieutenant h.j. colon and trooper pilot burke and then bates the two died in a helicopter crash while they were responding to the violence on saturday's rally the rally was in protest over movie in the robert e. lee statue in charlottesville emancipation park and confederate statues were removed overnight in the city of baltimore all this comes a couple of days after mary katherine pugh announced the city would be removing them many residents were upset with her announcement saying these statues should just be removed but instead destroyed here's our t. correspondent ashley banks with more. such sound of heavy machinery rung out
between eleven thirty pm and five thirty this morning in baltimore as contractors a low didn't hold a confederate statues away from their post and attendance was baltimore mayor catherine q. watched as each confederate statue was removed he said the removal of the statues was unannounced in order to prevent a violent confrontation i thought that there is enough grandstanding and no speeches being made to get it done you know i spoke with the council on monday morning i spoke with the president's city council i said a with the climate of this nation that i think it's very important that we move quickly and quietly i also submitted that to the entire body of the city council and said we are going to be moving quickly quietly to get this done and so that's what i did. eleven thirty seven o'clock last night gathered and we moved the statues earlier
this week the baltimore city council unanimously passed a resolution to remove the statues and it's happening i'm in national conversation after the deadly attack and trial itself during a white supremacist rally according to local media reports on wednesday a group of protesters pledged to remove the robert e. lee and stonewall jackson monuments themselves as the city wasn't going to do it monday afternoon and durham north carolina protesters climb the statue of a confederate soldier toppling it during an anti-racism rally take a look at some of the protesters reactions. it was honestly like the way that the video rather than the government. taking it down because it shows. we're the people building you like. this is. the sort of. was better than. the moon that's easy this stuff has shot. out of place and. i was surprised to see with the shot
is right. citizens in lexington kentucky and gainesville florida are asking for confederate statues to be removed and i'm brooklyn new york confederate symbol will be removed as well as a sign the city of baltimore is still deciding on what should be done to the statues pews suggest that they may be relocated to confederate cemetery south where some residents say they are happy with the removal of the statues but argue racism and white privilege writing deeper than the presence of confederate statues and washington actually banks are taking. the debate over the removal of confederate statues ignited after a white supremacist opened fire at a trolls in south carolina church back in two thousand and fifteen and the city council in charlottesville virginia agree to remove the statue of confederate general robert e. lee in what is now called emancipation park formerly robert e. lee park but as you saw this past weekend some aren't giving up without
a fight according to a southern poverty law center there were seven hundred eighteen confederate monuments across the country and one of those monuments in durham north carolina was taken down by protesters monday night by way of getting a yellow strap to it the statue had stood outside the courthouse for almost a century where it fell and governor gray cooper a democrat tweeted quote the racism and deadly violence in charlottesville is unacceptable but there's a better way to remove these monuments the more we bring in mark bray professor and historian at dartmouth college thanks for joining us today. thank you so what's your reaction to how the monument was taken down in north carolina. so i think it's a model of how to push city councils how to push legislatures to do the right thing and get rid of any monument that glorifies the confederacy which of course was an attempt to hold on to the slave regime that captivated countless african captives
over the course of centuries these statues are not history the statues are glorification of slavery and even more specifically glorification of jim crow since most people don't know a lot of these southern statues to the confederacy was actually built during the sixty's as a push back against the civil rights movement so we need to take them down we need to take them down right now and if activists. if they have city councils won't do it activists should step up push the issue there as legitimate as having statues to hitler in berlin and people were up in arms when isis was destroying artifacts in mosul do you see any resemblance to what they did and how it happened in north carolina. no because we can't look in the destruction of statues and abstraction without seeing the politics behind it isis are trying to impose their one perspective on us or a terror in a world domination through their warped perspective on islam and in flavin capture
and murder millions of people anti-racist in the united states are simply saying that that use that glorify slavery should be taken down that we should put up other statues rename streets to really promote the kind of anti-racism site that we want to see the tearing down of statues is part of the history of social change you know when when desire was overthrown in russia the statues were taken down when the declaration of independence aside and united states statues of the british king were taken down that's just part of history and so we know that some confederate monuments were also taking down in baltimore and of course others will be taken down in the next few months but the president brought up a very interesting point george washington was also a slave owner are we going to take down everything george washington to you i mean isn't there some kind of happy medium here at understanding that it was a different era slavery is in no way tolerated today but these people do make up our history. well i mean part of the question that that black lives matter raised that the resistance to trump raises what is our history and how do we commemorate
it i heard president some say well what are we going to take down statues to washington and jefferson is their slave owners my answer is yes and that's the answer of a lot of people who think that we can't have any tolerance for slavery as sort of this morally relative concept that we need to start really imagining what the history of this country is and raise up those people such as the indigenous population such as the enslaved african population that really made this society what it is despite the oppression that they face and really rethink how we look at the history of this continent and i was in charlottesville on sunday after everything that happened on saturday and i spoke to some people who were opposed to the actual rally but were for keeping the robbery at least statue said do you think this is something that should be decided by residents as opposed to the city council. well you know we can discuss the best kind of the most democratic way to go about it but i think that getting lost in the procedural aspect in the legal or
stick aspect of this is the fact that there really is no historical debate over the legitimacy of slavery there is no historical debate over the fact that can that the confederacy fought and died and killed countless people in order to hold on to slavery that that's not debatable that's not negotiable and simply looking at these statues as a political abstract historical memento is missing that political struggle which bears directly on the struggle against racism today in the united states the fact that this all right demonstration happens around robert e. lee statue is not an accident the fact that if this demonstration had not happened had hired would still be alive shows that these statues very pano up more than history to bear upon life and death matters today well it's interesting that you bring that point up because some people were saying that and he felt was actually responsible for some of the violence so we know that you're the author at and t. for how they make a difference and why we need them from what many say and if it is
a violent movement that they're the ones who are smashing out windows during an operation and according to others like i just said they were violent in charlottesville this past weekend so quickly tell us why we need and. well i mean let's let's look at what happened in charlottesville the video evidence is clear that the fascists in the sea showed up with weapons and shields quite literally with assault rifles with cans filled with concrete with bottles of your own ready to attack anyone who they hated the clergy who were there to have peaceful demonstrations such as cornel west subsequently thing that anti passes for standing up to defend them against what it would have been really extreme brutality and possibly murder we need to take a step back and not simply look at the violence in the abstract but look at the political and the ethical context in which it occurs and ask ourselves which side are we going to put ourselves down upon in the struggle against one of the most destructive forces of world history don't have no problem thank you sir but i'm
mark rey professor and historian at dartmouth college we appreciate it. and coming up on r t is the iran nuclear deal on the verge of collapsing and if not the very latest right after this short break. all the world. and all the news companies merely players but what kind of parties are in t. america playing r t america. america are still. many ways to use lead and skate just like you really. do. you do. your own. part in the world still the world's all the world's a stage we all are familiar. people
have got to know whether or not fair present or supply american people deserve to know your difference at this point does it make you must guard against the military industrial war we shall never on the golden gate. or should know that the old yes we do what we. think we yank their. future. i'm tom hartman and i'll give you what the mainstream media can't cope big picture . taking
a little and when you question more find what you're looking for this. will go deeper investigate and debate all so you can get the big picture. america's envoy to the united nations nikki haley has signaled that the u.s. is not beyond abandoning the iran nuclear deal the u.n. meanwhile insists that the international community must do everything in its power to ensure the agreement holds artie's jaclyn has this reports. fessor and historian at dartmouth college we appreciate that. their cause envoy to the united nations nikki haley has signaled that the u.s. is not beyond abandoning the nuclear deal and the u.n.
meanwhile insists that the international community must do everything in its power to ensure the agreement poles are to chaplain viggo has this report the un secretary general antonio group said it is considers the iran nuclear deal to be one of the most diplomatic achievements in our collective search for peace and security we need to do whatever we can to preserve it iran cannot be allowed to use the nuclear deal to hold the world hostage the nuclear deal must soon become too big to fail her comments come after the iranian president warned earlier this week that his country could backtrack on the two thousand and fifteen agreement in short order should further sanctions be imposed by the u.s. i got a part of our show if the u.s. administration is willing to repeat previous experiences iran will certainly within a short period notice the scale of weeks or months but on the scale of hours in days we turn to a much more advanced position than when the talks started earlier this month president trying to find a fresh wave of sanctions against iran into law
a move to run considered to be a violation of the nuclear agreement under that deal iran officially agreed to halt parts of its nuclear program in exchange for western countries lifting sanctions against them and at the time the agreement was viewed as a landmark diplomatic achievement by most major world powers including all those who had signed on to it russia of course is one of the signatories and its foreign minister has warned that u.s. sanctions against iran could in fact undermine the regional balance established by the g. scipio way. you need actual sanctions are illegal in principle but when they sanctions are used to get advantage and it can flee collaborated balance and such a balance has been reached off the iran you can do these are irresponsible actions that can undermine this balance. the u.s. shouldn't use such provocation here we are talking about an individual's national interests but about the interests of the whole region when we are trying to secure non-nuclear states is the recent sanctions were approved despite washington having
confirmed that iran has in fact stayed in compliance with the terms of the deal and at this point both sides have accused the other of violating the quote spirit of the agreement iran for carrying out rocket test and the u.s. for imposing new sanctions but of course the two countries also claim no infractions have occurred on their parts meanwhile the threats to vacate this monumental agreement continue to fly and fact escalate in severity leaving the future of it unclear. and for more on the. iraq situation i'm joined now by investigative journalist and national security policy analyst and director porter thanks so much for your time today and so we understand there are many republicans including the president they campaigned on basically doing away with the iran deal but we understand that the time for ministration is now saying that iran if complying with the deal. and you mentioned that this reminds you a little bit of w. bush is that a second term can you explain well what we have right now in the trump administration
is one group led by make master national security adviser but also including tillerson the secretary of state and mattis the secretary of defense who are saying no we should not tear up the j. c.p.o. way. we need to you know make sure that we do everything possible to allow it to to continue for all possible and on the other side you have people within the white house staff who are really domestic essentially domestic political advisors to trump who are pushing a very different line which is tearing up and it's part of a broader anti islam hard line position that they're they've been very successful and trying to champion so what i find interesting is the parallel between that situation that we have right now and situation during the george w.
bush administration second term two thousand and seven two thousand and eight when the hardliners at that point were essentially vice president cheney and his very pros i honestly visors who were very interested in attacking iran in two thousand and seven supposed to be iran this was the year of iran two thousand and seven meaning the united states would actually use military force against iran but the secretary of state at that time condi rice and secretary of defense robert. gates really squashed it i mean they said no we can't we can't do that so there's a very rough equivalence here the difference now of course is that again the people who are pushing for a hard line against iran are really really don't have that much of a foreign policy strategy they're really people who are part of a broader anti islam domestic political strategy for the trump ministration it is however very strongly influenced by very right wing zionist group within that that
unit in the white house so their view is essentially anti iran but they don't really have a clear understanding of what they want to do as i understand it what they want to do to basically prevent iran from continuing to be a power in the middle east continuing to have a nuclear program and so forth. so there is a big difference in that regard and i think the other thing to bear in mind is that the people who are so supposedly moderate on the j c p a way that is make master and madison and killers and really don't have any idea themselves about how they're going to defend the j c p a way in light of the fact that trump and others. are unwilling to deliver what the united states promised as part of that agreement let's be clear about one thing the
agreement calls for a compromise between the united states and iran iran is supposed to deliver on the or on the nuclear part of it the united states is supposed to deliver on the economic part of it the u.s. has not delivered and so you're referring to the sanctions that now iran is threatening that the honey came out and said if the sanctions aren't done away with that they in fact well. and it's not just the new sanctions it's also the fact that the agreement was quite explicit that the united states is going to make it possible for iran to get business that has been denied it around the world it's going to get the the cash that it was due for selling oil particularly around the world that has not happened they've gotten very little economic. benefit from this agreement and that's why i've been saying for months that if this agreement does in fact expire or break down it's not going to be because of
a violation of the nuclear part it's going to be because the united states didn't deliver on the economic part and we're sure on time but we understand that the u.s. and israel are very close allies and measurement and yahoo have come out and asked that president is the quote from healthcare that we repeal and replace the iran deal do you see that happening well i think it's still up in the air i don't think this moment that the administration has a plan to tear it up but i do think that they don't have a plan to make it work and that means that we're headed into a period ultimately it's inevitable there's going to be a period of crisis around this and how that turns out still remains to be seen i really appreciate your interesting and i thank you so much that gareth porter investigative journalist and national security policy analyst really appreciate your time. after three years of being isolated from the outside world there is hope for syrians the army is battling to retake a key area from the islamic state in r.t.
has filled exclusive video from inside the besieged region. thank you dana. the conditions inside the city are dire after years of terrorist oppression basic necessities including food are scarce and the un humanitarian agency is concerned that vital medical help is not getting through right now the only way to get emergency supplies as civilians is through air drops are to send a hawkins has the details. it's not the marianna trench or an active volcano but it's still one of the least accessible places on our planet syria's
david zor a city that's been completely encircled by islamic state for almost three years. the only way to get into the city is by plane that means risking your life one of oxys contributors managed to do just that gaining exclusive access to the districts of the besieged city right here just hundreds of meters from the front line at first glance these exclusive pictures look like they could be from any middle eastern city but the truth is far from it this is what locals have to get used to. i don't know where or how they are there but i was proud. that i.
shouldn't be there simply having to look you know like you know it look for the most any of anything i mean. mortars left by i saw shelling craters blood on the ground you can find such scenes across many parts of war torn syria but here the disaster is totally in a scope of all. the city and the air base are completely cut off there's been times which have been very dire but as i said local support has been key especially the tribes in there in the region they have been keyed to holding out and at the moment it's very similar and it rocks are happening and people forget that the siege has been very difficult to lift the escalation zone has helped the situation in their resume as well c.v.s. parachutes this is food and other essential is being delivered by air today it is or it's basically the only way possible you don't have to be a u.n.
expert to see just how bad things are with the food and water situation. here when you're inside the city become a dozen lawyer about the consequences of the siege of over two years of brocade in january this year the u.n. estimates that there was some ninety thousand people still trapped inside the city today we just call tell how many are left but they're still there hoping to forget what it's like to have islamic state as your neighbors a failed state in venezuela threatens the security and stability of the united states that's according to vice president mike pence who was touring latin america this week and while america's v.p. has refused to rule out possible military action against venezuela several latin american leaders are objecting to the use of force artie's marina porton i reports from miami the vice president says the u.s.

been this way. is the president mentioned a few days ago. the united states has in his words many options for venezuela. but the president and i remain confident that working with all our allies across latin america we will achieve a peaceable solution to the crisis facing the venezuelan people pence's visit to colombia argentina chile and panama comes less than a week after president donald trump threatened military intervention in venezuela speaking at a pro-government rally on monday president nicolas maduro referenced the violence in charlottesville when he vowed to take up arms and fight extremists and racists from the united states on this homeland will not be intimidated and will not be defeated by anyone our people are ready to face these extremist supremacy and racism from the united states and defeat them with the courage and the bravery the

social media always on the story goes it's garbage it's real simple. thing. what politicians do you should. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be trusted. or some want. you to do it to be close to see what the true you the more you get. interested in the water's edge. there should. i think the average viewer just after watching a couple segments understands that we're telling stories that are critics champ
tony you know why because their advertisers won't let them. in order to create change you have to be honest you have to tell the truth party's able to do that every story is built on going after the back story to what's really happening out there to the american public what's happening when a corporation makes a pharmaceutical chills people when a company in the environmental business ends up polluting a river that causes cancer and other illnesses they put all the health risk all the dangers out to the american public those are stories that we tell every week and you know what they're working. the death among opioid users continues to climb and according to the centers for disease control and prevention the latest numbers are from twenty fifteen and
revealed more than thirty three thousand deaths occurred from the use of opioids officials say they believe the numbers have dramatically risen since then and now some states are five am back at the drug companies who they say misled doctors into thinking that these opioids weren't as addictive as they really are south carolina sued per do pharma lp tuesday becoming the latest state or local government to accuse the maker of deceptive marketing practices to discuss this further let's bring in mike and tonio host of america's lawyer here on our team america thanks so much for joining us today. and so why do you believe that these drug companies were just sapped of in their marketing and if so do you think it's to blame when referring to the opioid epidemic this country is currently facing. well they had a plan basically wasn't it by the way it wasn't just the manufacturers it was the distributors the cases i'm handling nationally in ohio kentucky florida. virtually
all over the southeast were being hired by counties and cities not by the attorney general it's the counties in the cities who were involved in the biggest losses here and was there a plan that the companies the distributors the distributors the such as mckesson and cardinal in the people there were actually the pill pushers did they know what was going on absolutely here's what's so interesting about that you would have a distributor in the same town where you had a what we call the. cultural blew it they call it zombie land that's the that's the vin that killer that is used on the street right now in zombie land is where a county or a city that used to be kind of the place that people wanted to live it's kind of place they wanted to raise their kids all of a sudden the opioids come into town and the what you have is a destruction of that culture destruction of the business and the people selling the drugs right there in that city live right down the road the distributors the
sales people that are to drive past the pill mills and see people lined up around the pill mills at seven o'clock in the morning eight o'clock in the morning standing there in their pajamas so they can get their pill those distributors live right in the same cities whether it's in ohio whether it's in west virginia jefferson county alabama kentucky these are all places that we're handling cases not against the manufacturers that case has to be handled but the cases we're focusing on the ones we think are more important are what the distributors did they were actually legal pill pushers they don't look like pill pushers they don't look like they're part of the cartel because they have an armani suit on but the truth is when you drill right down to it they actually built all this diversion this abuse of the drug into their business plan. they understood there would be pill mills they made that part of their business plan to show that in the first year the company started selling this product only so forty five million dollars worth of
oxycodone by year three they were selling six to seven billion dollars worth of the same product and the only difference was it hit the street and that's where the big money was for these distributors i don't know that the answer is the attorney generals because i handled the attorney general cases back in the back o. days and i don't know that the money actually ends up where it needs to the money needs to go back to the counties that had to pay for the action the extra hospitals the actual dependency hearings in the court system they had to pay for rehabilitation they had to pay for the police increase an increase in the police so the point being is this this case is important south carolina but i think the cases that are really going to move the ball are the cases where counties and cities are bringing the cases against the distributors and now a lot of states are tightening laws when it comes to opioids not allowing people to have their prescriptions for a certain time frame now but unfortunately many are turning to street drugs to treat their pain so what can we do about this issue. well it's the same part of
this issue you're talking about right there is called the tale of the opioid brum what that means is after the opioid pill mills are closed down what comes in out of place like places like police go mexico is you have this influx of black tar heroin which is cheaper than the opioid it's you you have pushers all over cities where the opioid crisis has taken place but you see that's part of the opioid problem the opioid folks can't stand and say gee whiz that's not our fault well it is their fault you had places that were pristine that they did demographics this is that were really good they did demographic analysis to figure out what counties they could move into in sell the most opioids ok if there were a lot of if there were a lot of hospitals if there were a lot of pharmacies if there was economic despair in a county where there was loss of jobs loss of loss of income middle class was
dropping those were the kind of places where you saw the opioid companies move into just in droves so after they move in they get people addicted incomes the black tar heroin in the problem gets worse and worse but that's called the tail of the problem but it really is the same problem but it is trying for they're trying to fix the problem by lesson in how much of a prescription somebody can have but at the same time it's actually hurting people who are already addicted so maybe this law would be good for people who aren't addicted but unfortunately these pills are so addictive that almost everyone gets a decade it seems so how do we move forward on this. the only way you move forward is this you're going to have to have some of these some of these places where this is happen you're going to have to have dramatic rehab kind of organizations go in there people don't understand this a person that is addicted to an opioid it affects the dopamine level in the brain
once the dopamine level be. becomes imbalanced it takes two years for that dopamine level just to return to normal so the idea of putting somebody in rehab for a month is not going to solve the problem this is long game long term in the companies that cause of this the caissons in the cardinals in the distributors that caused this they have a responsibility to help those counties get back on their feet a lot of these counties say the size of jefferson county in alabama they spent their losses will be one hundred hundred fifty million dollars that they spent just on the opioid problems so the longer it's a long term fix there is no short term really for to make you so much as might happen tanya host of america's lawyer we really appreciate your time. and you can law enforcement collect cell phone the cation data without a warrant from a third party and supreme court will be answering that there any question soon and to discuss this is legal and media analyst of the media so as
a lawyer what issues are you focused on here is this a violation. well here's the question remember lionel's law i just made that up that the law always lags behind technology now let's say this is natasha's phone and all of the laws of the supreme court have come up to regarding wire taps have been for your communication what you're saying what you're texting and that sort of thing communications but your phone is nothing but a data machine your information your contacts your pictures but even better let's say i just put this phone down and i say i don't want your phone i want to have the records from a cell phone tower from your carrier to see where the number was that came into this tower all look it's yours and i also find out now where you
were where you went and if it's in connection with a crime or the suspicion of a crime or the investigation of a crime most people will say well go ahead and do that but the question attached is this is this information this data where you were your location is that protected this is the fourth amendment the prohibition against search and seizure normally of documents and conversations and papers and things that are tangible doesn't apply to data data as to where you were mad a day that which is data of data and what the courts are doing and by the way in this particular case is before the supreme court right now every conceivable group from you to from snap chat to the cato institute everybody is saying that data your phone and everything it. presenting data as to where you are where it is is protected now the other argument is that no
. this is like looking at the letter just reading the address we're not reading what's in the letter we're just reading words the letters going that's the issue well you download so many apps all the time and a lot of times we agree to location data sharing so is that the same thing as communication data. that is a great question and the reason why is simply this do you have as we say in the biz an expectation of privacy when you in essence waved that you also have new statutes the data location act of two thousand the last and that provides a new standard for the f.b.i. and law enforcement agencies to extract and obtain data that don't use the probable cause standard of the fourth amendment but create their own so what we have now is
by statute new levels of searches new levels of proof that the law enforcement individuals have to use and then would you bring up is is what if you waived that what if you said look if you want this i phone if you want this cell phone this board phone you're going to have to consent to us knowing where you are so that we can fix it so that we can make sure your signal goes to the right tower if you don't want that you don't have to have this we're not listening to your communications we're not listening to what you are saying but we cannot give you this phone unless we have information as to where that phone is and where that phone is is where you are and the question is but i don't want you to tell a pile a where i am you can keep it but don't tell the police and those say sorry. can't do that you signed up for this you said it was ok and not only that there was
a statute that passed which basically says we have to turn this over after all it's just dave that it's not privilege it's not your conversation it's not your innermost secrets is just where you were you see where this is gone i mean it makes you want to think twice about downloading those apps because i mean i'm guilty i don't always read through all of that consent and you. never go what do you do sometimes or whoever with or do you lonely or saturday night what do you do on a diet and you will stay home and read my my by now you can have these neat little bags you can put these into dead shield the information is a word this is going but your phone does it work so what's it going to be privacy or this neato gadget you decide stations decisions on media thank you so much as always thank you. and to some interesting new findings in the science world researchers say that analyzing genetically modified ants could help us better
understand human behavior artie's turny chavez explains. they used to be that knew the answer only being inside five movies but now thanks to scientists that new york university and that's about to change and it's all happening right here. i visited a lab at the n.y.u. school of medicine where a team of researchers analyzed thousands of ants to further understand social behavior. and are fascinating creatures they organize themselves and groups with very specific tasks the males may be egg laying queens or sterile workers some hunt for food others are soldiers and then some build the tunnels but in order to accomplish these tasks an enormous amount of communication is needed how they. do this. labor and how they communicate that's a question we really want to want to know to explore the evolutionary roots of the system researchers created mutant ants by using a gene altering technology called crisper scientists were able to modify
a gene called orca which is essential for sensing the pheromones that answer used to communicate in here we just remove one of the important for him for the whole back three sensory system and see where they're in fact with their behavior and also it back to me and your to better the researchers say that the resulting deficits in the end social behavior and their ability to survive in a colony sheds light on social development what we do is to try to disrupt the process to figure out how to process works so it's a genetics genetics you have something that works well and you disrupt it and you see one gene and see what the consequence of that and you can understand how the process will curve. after altering the gene or. change dramatically some ants became anti-social and wandered away from the colony others wanted for food or lay fewer eggs and some were even bad mothers which we followed and seems to be.
pretty consistent with the fact that because they cannot community. if you become a social the experts say that trying to understand the social behaviors of the ants could help treat antisocial behaviors with humans in the future reporting in new york turn of each others are. now let's discuss a popular stereotype that women over think things more than men researchers from a man clinics in california say they found evidence of this including women's brains are significantly more active than men's joining me now is the lead author psychiatrist daniel g. amen founder of a minute clinics thanks so much for joining us today thanks for having me and so one of the findings of the study is that women have better intuition empathy and self-control while at the same time women are very vulnerable to feel anxiety depression insomnia and eating disorders so does your study bring in the insight as to why well what we found based on forty six thousand
scans so again when clinics we use imaging to help us diagnose and treat our patients and have done it for a long time is that female brains are significantly more much more than male brains and specially in the front part of their brain and why that's important is it helps explain some of the strengths of the female brain but also some of its vulnerabilities i see and when going about this study were you worried about it not being politically correct if say men's brains were more active than women's do you think this study would have been frowned upon. you know i have five sisters three daughters fourteen nieces i knew going into the study we were going to see differences and there were there were i mean we've been looking. brain scans we do
a study called brain spect image and inspect looks at blood flow and activity it looks at how your brain works and for decades we've seen female brains are healthier they're much busier and i think it helps to understand some of their strengths and some of their vulnerabilities so as the scientists i really didn't care if it was politically correct or not because the information really helps us be better doctors and help our patients and so you know if a man has trouble with depression odds are we're going to have to stimulate his brain but if a woman has trouble with depression we're more likely to have to calm it down interest that's just based on what we've seen in the brain and you think your findings have any kind of impact about what recently happened at google. i do.
you know i argued. in the paper and also i wrote a book called unleash the power of the female brain that female brains are actually wired for leadership so nurse scientists forever have talked about the frontal lobes as the executive part of the brain because it's sort of like the boss at work that's involved in things like forethought judgment impulse control organization planning empathy learning from the mistakes you make and clearly female brains as a group not everybody but as a group have the edge and so why women are not him more positions of leadership really doesn't make sense from a nurse science perspective and so to argue they can't do this or they can't do that just doesn't fit the science that we've seen interesting and what about those
who identify as transgender how would their brains compare. you know we actually didn't look at that specifically but we have hundreds of sexual identity disorder transgender. scans that we've done and there's clearly a difference it just i can't say exactly what it is yet i seem very fast in we really appreciate your time thank you so much that psychiatrist daniel amen founder of aiming clinics really appreciate it. thank you. following a two day flight from cape cavern now space x. shipment delivering an array of science experiments arrive at the international space station today nasa astronaut jack fisher reportedly use the space station's robot arm to grab the dragon over the pacific ocean where the dragon holds three tons of cargo including research a cosmic ray monitor
a mini satellite and twenty mice for an eye and brain study so far this was the thirteenth supply shipment completed by space x. space x. is one of two main shippers for nasa station supplies and before we go don't forget to tune in at nine pm for larry king now tonight's guest is a music legend activist and watcher a pristine one x. here's a snippet of what's to come from an ism a better world now allowed for example i've been a fan of the most all my life regarding women as equal i war for women i never thought good to hear what i never thought that was odd i think i thought about this a lot and i actually think that the word feminist and you know it's a bit like art when you see art people have different relationship to it and people take a meaning from the word feminism and the take their own interpretation of
that word so some people feel all feminism is this and someone else might think well from isms completely different and they feel just as much as the on it for me fit feminism means the empowerment of women and girls so they can have a decent life with education with access to medical care sexual reproductive health care. access to the things that in the western world women like myself have had the privilege of taking for granted because when you travel to developing countries you get to see. something often like it feels a bit like the middle ages you see young girls under the age of eighteen who've already had a baby and are pregnant probably mommy to a much older man you see that but it can change and like just like it's female genital mutilation is changing no it's changing at the grassroots level that young

a real job like better air they're working for nine ten bucks an hour basically enough money to. buy alcohol and cigarettes to be there and it's like fully. support system. from other. guys and i made a professional is powerpoint to show you how artsy america fits into the greater media landscape our team is not. left there all right we are a solid alternative to the. old school liberal or conservative and as you can see that as barbara we don't skew the facts either talk you have left these talking head righties oh there you go above it all so look out world is in the spotlight now every really a lot of noise out of classifiers it actually took me way more time than i care to admit. you're working hard to america.
what's more. let me just start this out by saying if i see and not the i will punch it i promise we can all agree not these and racists by now writes ok now that i've said that let's get to the story slate magazine recently ran a story entitled e.s.p.n. aired a segment in which white buyers purchased black football players from an auctioneer and the article shows an actual clip from the auction which was only some sort of fantasy sports promotion and in the clip they show white people actually bidding on a black football player in an auction which sounds horrible i mean a bunch of white people buying black people in an auction sounds just like a slave auction sounds like not only were those white people participating in the
auction racist but so was e.s.p.n. for even airing this thing meant so with this article slate was definitely trying to show an example of outrageous racism except of course that wasn't the whole story now forget the fact that the african-american man in that clip in compared to a slave by slate is odell back in junior a massively successful athlete who literally just in to deal with nike worth to be around twenty five million dollars. forget the fact that he's going to make over three million dollars for this football season alone forget that that the incredibly successful american man slave is actually comparing to a slave because that's not the part of the article that made me go went the part that made me go it was that it only included a clip of odell being auctioned not the part where very white players were also being auctioned off to rob gronkowski was part of the auction but slate didn't even mention that slate only mentioned black football players not the white ones in fact
slate hardly mentioned any facts at all as the article that a company that incredibly sensational headlines was only one hundred thirty two words logged and since the story was incredibly misleading it can only be called out for what it is race the unfair use of statements about race to try to influence people that's what slate did plain and simple like know much of the media this week so like i say if i see a nazi i will punch it then and i haven't seen one yet and no one i know has ever seen one because where i live in the real world of new york city people of all religions colors creeds shapes and sizes actually all co-exist together just fine going about our daily lives like ninety nine percent of the rest of my country is doing but i promise i'll punch a nazi if i ever see one because there's yank racism is the worst and the media
called the feeling of freedom and. everyone in the world should experience flamingo and you'll get it on the old the old. the old according to just. look at the modern world come along for the ride. i'm a trial lawyer i've spent countless hours poring through documents that tell the story about the ugly side of. corporate media everything uses to talk about these car companies i'm going to paint a clear picture about how disturbing council blood corporate conduct is be and mom these are stories that you no one else can take on my parents or your host of
americans own question. greetings and sal you taste. what exactly is in the structure auk watchers groups question according to the good folks at merriam webster's well infrastructure is the underlying foundation or basic framework of a system or organization it's the system of public works of a country a state or region it's all of our roads or sewage lines our airports are lector the lines it's a thing that makes our towns cities and countries run and here in the united states the supposed shining.
