unfit to lead the democrats are now looking to set up a mechanism where as congress would have more of a say when it comes to the president's health nancy pelosi maintains this is not about threat this is not about president trump he will face the judgment of the voters but he shows the need for us to create a process for future presidents the president's allies say that this is yet another attempt by the democrats to push trump out of office. i wouldn't put a post speaker pelosi to stage a coup she's already weaponized impeachment was to keep her from weaponized in the 25th amendment who can forget last year's failed impeachment proceedings i'm announcing the house of representatives moving forward with an official impeachment inquiry and directing our 6 committees to proceed with their investigations under that umbrella of impeachment inquiry the president must be held accountable no one

10:12 am
remove trump from office just in case he wins at the polls that does not sound like a position of confidence but then again with so much fear about contested results this november nothing in american politics seems normal these days what she proposes is a new legislation to set up a permanent 17 urson commission to try to evaluate whether or not residents will this is something that they are made. of representatives before the election but it certainly is not going to pass in the senate and go away. yes president truckin so just so it's a loss they've tried everything else take it a try to this seems to say something to it you put it in the news cycle friday last week and this to me isn't dormice waste of resources and energy so most of the stuff is being carried out at a time when the state or refuses to engage in real negotiations about stimulus

10:19 am
or tired or weary they also under the measures that have been implemented by many member states by many countries have become isolated they become alienates and they feel lonely in many situations so in that situation they're more likely to feel a very high cost of the measures that they're being asked to perform some not saying that family members for example not going to social gatherings do not have the usual behavior becomes a very high cost for them and so then less likely to actually go and where i'm asked to practice safe. physical distance and we're very concerned about that see here the w.h.r. european region because they feel it could be contributions of course soon a resurgence into a rise in transmission of 19 and man's best friend is joining

a ranks against the global pandemic and russia china is it working with a special cross breed dog which is learning to finish out cases leaving the virus in a way to hide. don't know seaters pretty simple there are 2 samples of non-infected and infected volunteers and the dogs are learning to identify called the infections by smell. they have an outstanding sense of smell that's not only very keen but they also possess in the ability to switch from small concentrations to be clowns and vice versa which is very difficult for many other dogs besides they are

a small size which is convenient because they can squeeze through will easily to heaven inherent search for billy to. the u.s. government is suing one of the country's top universities for alleged racial discrimination the justice department claims that yale is limiting the number of white and asian applicants in violation of federal civil with civil rights law. for the last few decades yale's oversized standardless intentional use of race has subjected domestic nontransferable against a yale college to discrimination the ground of race yale's race discrimination includes imposing undue and unlawful penalties on racially disfavored applicants
10:22 am
including in particular most asian and white applicants in a long running probe the justice department looked at applicants with similar grade schools and they found that a white or asian candidate is up to 10 times less likely than a black candidate to be accepted into the ivy league university yells actions are allegedly a violation of the civil rights act of 1964 well similar allegations have been made it lead to us colleges 3 years since the introduction of affirmative action law as they were aimed at supporting disadvantaged groups but of often raise concerns over reverse discrimination in response to the new lawsuit yale defended its admissions policies. i want to be clear you will does not discriminate against applicants of any race or ethnicity admissions practices are completely fair nor yields admissions policies will not change as a result of the filing of this baseless lawsuit this is the going on for for many
10:23 am
years now my but i feel like it has now gone to public eye but i do think that the push for you know likewise that our movement itself like that is going to make schools more likely to have affirmative action laws that scrutiny against other races i think that asian americans and white people should have a fair chance at missions and that testing scores and volunteer hours should be the same for all applicants actually the idea that academia has been discriminating against white and asian students has been an open secret since i was in college which is longer ago than i care to admit don't get me wrong i believe that if that systemic discrimination is happening it is wrong but the answer to the problem is not further discrimination exactly i think it is insulting to black students into a spandex suit and to imply that they need to be given a leg up because of their race that they're not for some reason able to gain
10:24 am
admittance just through the merit of their marks we are so used to the culture of political correctness we've almost become numb to the fact that this is just blatant racial discrimination i mean under the current system it would be totally possible for for example barack obama's daughters even though they have grown up with a huge amount of privilege to gain preference in admission policy over either a white or an asian student who grew up in food stamps just because of their race and if people are still defending a system like that then i don't know what to tell them at this point. the u.s. a slap to get more sanctions on iran further isolating the country from the wild financial systems washington claims that maybe to stop iran sponsoring terror activities and developing nuclear weapons but so wrong say as the restrictions would only hurt ordinary citizens. the maid covert 19 pandemic us regime was to blow up our remaining channels to pay for food and medicine iranians will survive

10:26 am
a journalist thomas fassbender believes the sanctions sanctions are not just about targeting a ron but sending out a wider message to the world. even if there is some mechanism in place that would still allow medical or humanitarian aid get into iraq. any foreign company any friend bank that is dealing with the iran that is involved in that in such supplies they will have to apply they will have to wait for a full licenses for cruel that's. from a practical point of view that can be no question that this will impede aid and support getting into the country it is a political move by the us the us are gambling on using their economic might their power over the global financial infrastructure to all pacify any potential opponents from russia china iran in a sort. even germany as are u.s.
10:27 am
sanctions now and we'll see what as well e to. thanks for joining us aaron on thier international those are the headlines but we're back in 30 minutes with all the latest all 3 of them. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy on sunday shouldn't let it be an arms race in. spearing dramatic development only really. i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time time to sit down and talk. the world is driven by shaped by the person.
