exposing a war crime he's not allowed to see that he really doesn't have any chance of acquittal. this is the way some of the biggest stories we've covered here over the past 7 days welcome to the program 1st this week's been struggling to revive public trust in the astra zeneca vaccine it's one of the 2 leading jabs being used across the 27 nations but after initially claiming the shot was entirely safe the european regulator is now saying severe blood clot should be listed as a side effect we asked people in italy and france how they view the mixed signals. i mean you want to be there are other vaccines so i cannot see the reason to focus only on astra zeneca if it has problems there are very rare but there are problems
2:02 pm
with it off a certain age groups should be restricted i personally wouldn't take it i understand that it can be an advantage for the community but if something goes wrong you could get from basis and then the personal advantage vanishes. for me there is a risk since it has been shown there are people who have unfortunately died after getting vaccinated it a point to subsume the risk is low in their best interest i think so they are never going to say that the risk is high and so that's what that doesn't surprise me there is a bit of confusion we don't know what to trust so i feel a bit of the dark concerns over a potential link between astra zeneca and red blood clots is exposing the latest divisions within the e.u. after the books agency that evaluates and supervises medicinal products that may once again said the benefits of the vaccine weigh the risks but saying that blood clots should be listed as a rare so i defect not although we're convinced and measures have been taken it's

really in spain of joined ranks with germany deciding to limit the job to those who are over the age of 60 belgium has followed suit with france now only recommending astra zeneca for those over $55.00 but those differences a coup is a headache for brussels it's worried that without a common policy towards astra zeneca trust in vaccinations could be eroded commissioner as a member states to ask experts to work with him up to develop a coherent approach across the region through their guidance and analysis of the extremely important we want to avoid of course the vaccination as however it may be the. this ship has already sailed here in france there have been reports of people not turning up with a coup the vaccination if it's astra zeneca and confusion over who should and who
2:04 pm
shouldn't have it is right there is also a question to be a last about why certain countries are making unilateral decisions against evolution of the may yet certain that may be simple the head of germany's vaccine commission said the a.m.a. evaluates vaccines based on what's of benefit to all in the e.u. individual countries though can be more picky in germany we have a slightly different situation because we're not so dependent on the astra zeneca vaccine and we can postpone vaccines and thereby achieve the same effect but in the end we still have the risk of these serious side effects in a certain age group over in the u.k. a new restrictions on astra zeneca or even tighter than those that have been taken by the european neighbors that previously the u.k. dismissed questions raised about the jab now the government committee is recommending that healthy people under 30 are provided with
2:05 pm
a different facts seen and those who are aged 18 to 29 years old should be offered an alternative that night in fact seen in preference to the astra zeneca vaccine regulators are now would voicing that astra zeneca provides another update on possible side effects and while for some the idea that they have a toy any chance of developing a fatal blood clot may be too much others say that they will gladly take the risk in a bid to put an end to the current nightmare so all of the will be out see paris meanwhile supply shortages continue to plague the use an occupation and the tension shifting to alternative vaccine the russian made sputnik the so far just one nation and western europe is fully embraced the job the microstate of san marino we spoke with a senior official at. ok we thought our daughter's fed up we face
2:06 pm
a delayed to supply of the 1st doses of the pfizer vaccine which were covered by protocol agreements but when. the pen demick forced us to session or other solutions on the market through cooperation with the russian direct investment fund we managed to pare new doses of this politically vaccine and start our vaccination campaign with vaccinations are now primarily being carried out with sputnik lee. we had an opportunity to receive scientific proof that this is a good and reliable vaccine and this is also confirmed by our own internal research of antibodies which measures the safety and efficiency of the up to date we have had absolutely no problems some minor reactions we have detected to comply with standard reactions to mean a station which includes low grade fever chills and so on right now we have no problems with the summary no hopes to complete its vaccination campaign by may your own place within a survey is home to around 34000 people most adults there are lined up for the
2:07 pm
sport in a job that has just told us that they've been working well with russia. we are definitely happy with the vaccine and are surprised at how good our cooperation with the russian fund has been the professionalism of the fun's workers and their willingness to help as well as quick supplies and the jobs it has been a very good experience of cooperation and i hope we will do it again in the course of future vaccination campaigns. cause the flight to get its crew in a virus has some particularities because we're a small states with limited resources our whole system has limited capabilities to confront the situation caused by this is where it's crucial for us to immunize our population as soon as possible when we saw the wrecks this divert seems on the european market is limited which complicated the start of the vaccination campaign we decided to contact the russian direct investment fund regarding sputnik the.

a northern ireland has been gripped by rioting throughout the week police fired water cannon for the 1st time in 6 years as pro u.k. loyalists and irish nationalists faced off the disturbances come amid a wave of anger over post trade barriers this was the scene in belfast on friday night protesters torched a trash can and a car and held rocks and petrol bombs and police northern ireland's 1st minister arlene foster's urged both sides to show restraint and the british prime minister's expressed his alarm and called for dialogue. i am deeply concerned by the scenes of violence in northern ireland especially attacks on the p.s.n. i who are protecting the public and businesses attacks on a bus driver and the assault of a journalist this way to resolve differences is through dialogue not violence or criminality. meanwhile northern ireland's justice ministers blamed the u.k. government for the flare up the long accuse the conservatives of dishonesty over the way bricks it would affect the irish border saying they had promised unfettered
2:09 pm
access while failing to work through the legal consequences she also slammed the british government's decision to suspend the northern ireland protocol which was part of the u.k.'s withdrawal agreement with the e.u. aimed at ensuring an open border jonathan tom who's a professor of british and irish politics thinks the government made a series of false promises to the people of northern ireland where the british government bonds johnson in particular after a considerable amount of responsibility it was parts johnson who went over to belfast it's only democratic party the largest party in northern ireland told the public party conference 3 years ago that it would be untold for any british government to preside over a border in the irish state forest johnson was attacking his previous us to treason may signing a deal within a year for his johnson we've done that and since then we spent a lot of time pretending that there is one between great britain and northern ireland so you just have more of the simple life you know the terrible sense of betrayal over what the prime minister has done i think that boris johnson needs to
2:10 pm
go to northern ireland explain what he's done in terms of of the protocol and try and also meet with the you leaders to mitigate some of the worst effects the protocol and diminish the number of checks get on goods go between great britain and northern ireland otherwise we're looking at a grim some of the tensions of violence in northern ireland a. former u.s. intelligence analyst faces up to 10 years in prison for blowing the whistle on washington's drone assassination program daniel hale pleaded guilty to transmitting national defense information his case comes amid mass disclosure of similar crimes allegedly perpetrated by the us.
2:11 pm
i have to tell you when he called me a few hours ago he was surprisingly upbeat and optimistic and he he remarked about how much press this issue has been getting since he decided to plead guilty so in the end i think that he thinks that this is been worth it that americans know more about the drone program now than 8 they did 6 months ago or a year ago and even though he's likely going to go to prison it was worth it the u.s. is flying these drones or at least it was until recently that were used ostensibly to kill terrorists or would be terrorists but in reality to kill anybody who might resemble
2:12 pm
a terrorist and that included women children the elderly and anybody else who happened to be on the ground i believe that we're we're a nation of laws and we have to abide by those laws whether we like them or not if we don't like them we should change them go through the process and change them if congress has not declared war on a country we don't have a right to attack it we just can't decide that we don't like the politics of whoever happens to be in charge in a place like yemen or pakistan or afghanistan and then launch drone strikes against them it's a violation of international law on data which gave to the online news site the intercept back in 2014 was made available to the public even so he's now accused of disclosing classified intelligence information as a poll to say these kind of exposures are essential. using the espionage act in this way to prosecute journalists sources and spies chills newsgathering and discourages sources from coming forward with information in the public interest
2:13 pm
particularly when it relates to national security where government secrecy is at its height these documents detail the secret unaccountable process for targeting and killing people around the world including u.s. citizens through drone strikes there are vital public importance and the related to their disclosure is protected by the 1st amendment. was arrested 2 years ago and charged with violating the espionage act and also other related offenses president biden's imposed temporary restrictions on drone strikes in most countries but there are reports that he aims to boost exports of on banned weapons to countries including those with poor human rights records john kiriakou again says however justified whistleblowers exposure of drone strikes they've got next to no chance of proving that to the u.s. authorities. this is really the worst part of the of the espionage act this is the reason why ed snowden can't come home this is the reason why i couldn't go to trial this is the reason why jeffrey sterling the other cia whistleblower was
2:14 pm
convicted because there is no affirmative defense we are prohibited by law from going into court and saying i did it but i did it for this reason and in the case of daniel hale this was a war crime he did it because he was exposing a war crime he's not allowed to say that and so he really doesn't have any chance of acquittal the best thing to do for daniel as it was for me as it was for so many others here charged under the espionage act is to take a deal and to hope for the lightest possible sentence the decision that was made early on even before joe biden was inaugurated to pursue the appeal against julian his son it was that decision that made it clear that joe biden was going to pursue national security leaks just like barack obama did and just like donald trump did after him. developments this sunday in a blackout at a nuclear site in iran is being described as an act of terrorism by government
2:15 pm
officials the. facility suffered an outage earlier on sunday a day after the president unveiled a new set of advanced centrifuges for fostering uranium enrichment media in israel say the incident was caused by a cyber attack by the israeli intelligence agency mossad that's based on western intelligence sources and has vowed to retaliate against the perpetrators but so far it's not assigned any. incident of course though threatens to overshadow ongoing talks between iran and world powers on reviving the stalled 2015 nuclear deal that's got some thoughts on this now we can talk to have a professor of political science at the university of attack welcome to the program some israeli media the only one saying this. that it might be the israeli intelligence agency mossad how likely do you think that is. well iranian official thought for have not formally excused anyone but i think it's very unlikely that
2:16 pm
the israelis are behind this and this is not surprising in the past 10 years every time you're on in the united states have begun serious diplomatic negotiations the israelis have tried to sabotage this they assassinated iranian scientists between 201-2012 when obama wanted to negotiate with iran arguing the final days of the trumpet ministration days sasson aided you don't stop and think are scientists with the aim of forcing a confrontation between iran and the u.s. and now that diplomatic talks have begun in vienna since last tuesday between iran and the us 1st they attacked an iranian cargo ship off the coast of yemen and now we have this cyber attack so it's a tactic that they've used before and it actually sometimes it doesn't work and it derails the negotiations between iran and the u.s. if in jew course iranian officials do conclude was behind this there is this threat
2:17 pm
to retaliate how far could this escalate. well i think the israelis are calculating that iran will not retaliate at least immediately and the reason is because 1st of all we're in the final months of the hassan rouhani government and i don't think they actually want a confrontation and secondly as you pointed out your own does not want an escalation when it is trying to negotiate with europeans in the u.s. nevertheless of the same behind these kinds of attacks cannot remain without any pushback because if you're on does not retaliate these things will continue nevertheless i don't think we're going to see a immediate retaliation. what do you think is the ultimate goal whoever it is is it to do with hampering iran's nuclear capabilities or is it more about. those talks in vienna. i think it's the 2nd one i think they want to derail the talks regarding
2:18 pm
the un's nuclear capacity these things can be rebuilt in regards to this attack it was actually fixed quite quickly nevertheless it creates a negative atmosphere during negotiations and i think this goes back to the fact that the israelis do not want a solution or any green meant to the nuclear issue they want tensions between iran and the u.s. as well as iran and its neighbors to remain very high in this is beneficial for the israelis instability in the middle east would be beneficial for these ratings that's for sunday's incident specifically iran's atomic energy organization says oh no casualties there are no leaks but there are unconfirmed reports of extensive damage to the now towns nuclear facility how potentially dangerous could such incidents be. while we don't know the extent of the damage iranian officials have actually downplayed the damage so we don't nor so far nevertheless i
2:19 pm
think the main goal was not to perhaps kill people it was trying to hamper iran's nuclear program as well as as i said trying to hamper the talks between iran and the u.s. and this is similar to a virus attack that they had years before the stocks net buyers that also try to sabotage iran's nuclear program but this also upsets iranians who are in the sense that you're on fjords that the international community the security council is essentially doing nothing to stop this cyber terrorism whereas if the situation was reversed iran would be condemned immediately and it. certainly adds another layer of difficulty to those already troubled folks on the iran nuclear deal ok professor sabri thanks for joining us. this is our city we're going to be continuing our special coverage to ahead of monday's historic anniversary of the 1st manned space

strengthen the blood vessels of the brain hatstand so you should do it for about 10 seconds before you get back on your feet and repeat the exercise 10 times put your hands on the floor lift your legs stand up and count to 1123 blood flows well to your half creating pressure. other exercise for the brain vessels is the arm staff so you don't have to stand long the most important thing is to put your feet in this position and then straighten up the exercise also needs to be repeated 10 times it's better to make it fast so the blood can quickly flow to the hat and back vessels expand and contract rapidly for the next exercise is to develop your balance it's good for blood vessels as well that's basic forward rolls you have to repeat them several times be sure you get a little dizzy when you get up and listen to how you feel are you dizzy or not or if you are repeated the same number of forward rolls and if not increase the number
