some of the luck on the none of my new middle charges going to come up on top of it. i the protests empty stadiums and a covert infected village of athletes. not quite the opening ceremony. the olympics was hoping for has the tokyo games get underway so much for rule britannia, brittania rules. the c questions are raised over the decline of what was one of the most powerful navy in the world. as it turns out. just one naval destroyer is fully operational now and following a recent wave of protests in cuba, the u. s. imposes a new round of sanctions against the caribbean island nation, showing that even under its new administration, the u. s. is not backing down on its long time rival now
no, been in jerry's ice cream, gets frozen out of israel after the company stopped sales and occupied palestinian territory and economic terrorism or support for human rights. we debate that issues an american company caving in to, to, to a mob demand. they can take a moral stand and say, well, i don't want to do anything with that product. ah, it's 6 pm here in russia's capital and you're watching ark international. i'm your host donald quarter. welcome to the program. the olympic flame is burning and the long awaited tokyo summer games have officially begun. but the atmosphere is far from being as festive as people had hoped for. while opening fireworks lit up the
stadium, there was a protest sparked by concerns that coven case loads will only continue to grow infections already linked to the invent event have jumped 211013 of them being among athletes. still the president of the international olympic committee and said that the games can be held safely with restrictions. meaning that for the 1st time in history, no spectators are allowed to attend as artillio. katrinka reports the controversy, doesn't even end their the whole world is talking about how the pandemic has taken its toll on the olympics. and it's clear the games will be the oddest, most unusual, weird choose which ever word you like in history. it looks as if the number one on the confessional just wanted to go with the flow of weirdness when he got the nation that's hosting the big event wrong. and now we're coming. target is safe and secure games for everybody, for the athletes, for all the delegations,
and most importantly, also for the chinese people, japanese people. anyway, the locals won't be able to enjoy any of the actual arena vibes because be arena's are supposed to be empty. and so the newly updated a limping moto faster, higher, stronger together also sounds a bit weird physically, there ain't going to be that many people in tokyo, standing or sitting together empty stadiums must be depressing for the athletes, but probably not as depressing as the rules for staying in the olympic village, a ban on leaving the covert free zone, gps trackers only 90 seconds allowed for conversations in the mix zone. only 10 minutes devoted for one meal having to fly out of japan once your tournament is over. this is how we keep private type in the olympic dining hall, sanitized,
and put these clubs on before we touch anything, we go and grab one of these trays. a individual try has been sanitized and washed. is a ton of the bottom floor of the dining hall as they walk around. obviously we've got i'm awesome in every little keep cool disinfecting why? so we walk down everything that we're going to touch the screen, the sides of everything. it makes me time conversations pretty difficult because it's hard to get through them, but it keeps up. the metal ceremonies might also make the winters feel a bit lonely. they will be presented to the athlete on a tray and then the athlete will take the metal him or herself. it will be made sure that the person who will put the metal on the tray will do so only with disinfected gloves so that the athlete can be sure that nobody touched them before . athletes also have to get used to fragile beds, which have been dubbed anti sex. although thanks to social media, we've already learned that beds aren't that useless in this peculiar aspect.
athletes will use beds made of cardboard frames, but they've been assured the cardboard beds won't collapse. during sex, the organizers haven't given up on the tradition of giving away thousands of condoms, but the athletes will only be able to use them after they check out till the very final days of preparations before the opening ceremony. it wasn't clear if the olympics would go ahead, despite the overwhelming anti cove it measures athletes are testing positive, the nerves count has been on for a while and it seems to be just as pacey as the metal count, while the city of tokyo itself is under a state of emergency, they the case growth numbers have gone back to the peaks of winter and the locals would usually be so proud to be living in a whole city are now mostly against the event. one recent poll showed almost 80 percent. we're not happy with the decision not to cancel the whole thing. this
explains the protests. the should cancel lympics because holding 1000000000 pick food cause mutated trains to spread which will endanger our lives. i think it is wrong to have the olympics in the midst of to run a pandemic. i wonder about the government's stance of calling for self restraint among the general public. well, the same time being adamant about the olympics. someone else who's already made tokyo? 2020 i. e. 20. 20. 1. upstanding is laurel hubbard. the 1st ever transgender olympic athlete. she was born male. and we'll compete among female weight lifters. this caused quite a stir with some of the sports community. going as far as saying that the i o. c. betrayed women by allowing this, while the transgender are celebrating this historic milestone for them. the whole thing feels like a bad joke. left change in opportunities and missed for some athletes,
meadows and the limpid qualifications. and we are powerless. i do believe that everyone should have access to sports, but not at the expense of others. both include and transgender efforts have been in place in the olympics and paul lympics since 2004 laurel hubbard, is the 1st to qualify. and 154000 olympians and barling bins. over the last 17 years, trans people belong in sports. and finally, in tokyo, it's become official athletes will be allowed to make political gestures and statements, but only before the competition begins. nothing like that is still allowed at the podium. so some teams have already announced they will be taking the ne, well, that was easy to expect. however, when athletes were pulled 70 percent said they were against any protests anywhere at the olympic venues. aud unusual weird. have you chosen the right word?
the written ones posted the most powerful navy in the world, but now it's more like a fish out of water. it's been revealed. just one of 6. royal navy destroyers are ready for service. the forces being warned, it's operationally unacceptable. as r t 's, maria gas d f reports. britain has made quite the splash recently, the cowboy flora into russia's territorial waters, off the coast of crimea, all ukrainian waters. if you were a british captain and our itching for an excuse to antagonize the russians. james, you're a big splash as i say, but it was bravado the supposed show of full symbolized, but h m as defended sailing into russian gun ranges was actually a bluff as it emerged that all other destroyers are in for repairs. h
m, a defender recently at the center of a diplomatic grove with russia following the voyage of the korean peninsula is the only vessel of the class without and issue. the other 5 type, 40 fives, all need work, either planned or due to problems developed while it see. it's a good thing, but it didn't break down and caught me in waters. the last thing the royal navy need is a rush and tug boats coming to its rescue or a chinese one following on from the queen elizabeth strike groups and no girl deployments. the united kingdom will permanently assign 2 ships in the region from later this year. big blad britain has i'm not entirely sure the chinese will be all that impressed, given recent events by which i mean breakdowns but big plans. nevertheless. now these, if the royal navy can scrounge together enough operational ships. so 2 of them, which as british assures, have shown can be a challenge if that ship experiences propulsion problems. as we have seen across
the top $45.00 family than our carrier group would have to be forced to lean on an a 2 ally to ensure that we have destroy protection. that really indicates bottom line that we need a bigger navy rule, but tonya rule, the waves, the old song, goes truly times bears know what not that the british are giving up. again. big black, 24000000000 pounds earmarked for a new fleet. we are going to use extra spending to restore britain's position as the foremost naval power in europe. and until then, it seems, britain will depend on others to rule the waves. in the question is, is everyone in nato ready to fight and die in an unintended hypothetical war, sparked by another british stunt? because it would be extremely embarrassing if they aren't. biden administration has taken its 1st major steps against america's long time target of
cuba up slapping sanctions on the country's defense minister and an elite security forces brigade for legit human rights violations during anti government protest this month. this is just the beginning. the united states will continue to sanction individuals responsible for oppression of the cuban people. people in cuba took to the streets to vent their frustration with a legit, pandemic mismanagement and an economic crisis along with food and medicine shortages. a number of activists were detained and the cuban president denounced these rallies as a foreign provocation. blaming the problems on the long standing us trade embargo further steps expected from washington include expanding its mission in havana and letting people in the us send money to relatives and friends in cuba through a remittance scheme, latin american and caribbean studies. professor daniel shaw says other countries would be accused of meddling if they pursued the same policies. several weeks ago
by they had said that a change in policy towards cuba was not on the menu, but suddenly following this, this backlash, this wave of anti cuba. anti socialism propaganda from the right wing from all sectors of the liberal elite suddenly biden is hyper focused on cuba. but the intention is the same as it has been since 1959. and this has nothing to do with the liberation of cuba, and everything to do with the re colonization of the u. s. is done everything in their power, diplomatically, no, terribly, economically and politically. to carry out their attempts to re colonize cuba. they blocked them off from access to technology to the engine to social media. so how hypocritical now that the republican party and others claim that they doing everything to bring free, why fi insecure with?
if china or russia were china, broadcast internet off the shows of cuba or radio like radio, my d is they've done from miami, the cuban cuban americans. surely the us government would cry foul towards russia woods china. here across the spectrum of the mainstream media. yet every day, cuba is there in the headlines because the u. s. has been pushing regime change in cuba. it's $959.00. s a true agenda. astonishing inconsistencies in the mainstream media and on social media when reporting on cuba are also a parent, a pro government demonstrator who asked the united nations human rights commission or not to mistakenly illustrate anti government protests with her photo had her twitter account blocked for quote, unusual activity the united nations used this photo and a tweet calling for the cuban government to address protesters grievances. the post
was later deleted and remade with the photo of an if of the official who made the request. we heard from the pro government activist in the picture, who says that those who support ivana are being deliberately silenced. even before found there would be mass protest, i decided for myself to hit the streets. i found a cuban flag and took to the streets to demand the end of the blockade. and of course, the protection of our revolution, my friends abroad, contacted me and showed my photo used by international media such as forbes, which used it as a symbol of the protest. of course, i was outraged and disappointed because that was not something i came to the streets for a while. so seeing such a manipulation, i decided to denounce and condemn the use of my image for something i was again, what happened is a lie. so i decided to denounce twitter because it was twitter way un commission. i used my photo and as a consequence to it, to decided to bend my profile,
silence may be understood that in this way they would silence many of those defending the revolution in cuba. in fact, media errors over cuba protests have been so common and so agree just the critics are raising questions. for example, cnn showed a rally in miami while suggesting it was in cuba. many others aired photos of pro government supporters as if they were anti government activists. and the photo circulating across social media said to be from cuba was actually from 2011 protests in egypt. but he quesada again says they're unlikely to be honest mistakes . seeing closely my, even though supporting the cuban revolution were shown to the world as part of the protests against the government. it was blayton manipulation because it was obvious that it was people with the cuban flag who i dent fired as a symbol of sovereignty and independence. and those who came to protest against government policy over the pandemic,
and other issues related to shortages. the government was accused of did not use national symbols that day one contradicted the other thing. the president of the german region worst hit by last week's deadly floods are struggling to piece together their lives. once again, they're forced to deal with everything from restricted vaccine access to broken sewage systems. me. i live, i guess i'll look callbacks. nation center was hitting the catastrophe and this close. and we all would have had to drive very far to do vaccinated. camino. i'm here for my 2nd vaccination. i was supposed to get my 2nd shot from my doctor, but he was also the victim of the clock. i'm also here with a charge group to help people who are affected because i was fortunately barely hit with benjamin smith on time. and i expect the number of covert cases in this area to rise in the next few days. the people that work together in
a confined space and the transmission corona is easier because everyone is not wearing mouth. nose protection, at least not in the pictures you see on tv. we can see that human to human transmission remains the main method of transmission on the army. and we had the safest drinking water in the home. well, it was almost over now. we have never had such a situation in germany. at least not this extreme. there is no difference between drinking water and sewage at the moment. the water flowed through the streets in the villages was a mixture of government and rain. water contamination is very high. you shouldn't inhale anything else while anything because they're also environmental toxins and things like that. ah,
is fish. if you see just terrible, everything destroyed. many people don't have any accommodation. the businesses also closed. it's like a nightmare. so much more financial help isn't necessarily because it has caused some damage. the whole infrastructure must be rebuilt. many builders must be ripped down and rebuilt all the breach of here. we have just one bridge out of around 10 left, just one bridge. to get to our the site, we now have to travel through the whole village. so we are really reliant on financial resources, and we also don't have any work. everything has been destroyed, no jobs, and no money anymore. there's local struggle to cope a presenter a top at a top german tv channel r t l has been fired for being caught pretending to help in the clean up operation . a bystander apparently filmed her smearing herself with mud just before going on,
camera in one stricken town, and then claiming that she was helping out economic terrorism. that's how the israeli president has labeled to the growing international movement to boycott his country over its treatment of palestine. it comes after ice cream, multinational been in jerry's fro sales within israeli settlements throughout the occupied west bank and east jerusalem. we believe it is inconsistent with our values for ben and jerry's ice cream to be sold in the occupied palestinian territory. we also hear and recognize the concerns shared with us by our fence and trusted partners. now it's just you know, and response, some in israel and beyond have shared videos of them throwing away its products. in the u. s. retailers have also shown solidarity with israel by reducing or stopping supplies of the brand. israel denies accusations of occupying palestine or
committing war crimes there, but palestinians have welcomes the ice cream brains move as a step towards what they see is justice. and i'm i for the decision and any company that boy cause these rail with occupational, but we hope the whole world will boycott. israel product, national, we are pleased with the company's decision will support all companies that buy caught these rarely occupation and always railey settlement because of the war crimes and crimes they're committing against palestinians. showed i feel happy because there are companies that have a conscious knowledge of the legality of settlements in the palestinian territory. when an american company makes such a decision, and it is one of the largest, the most widespread companies in the world. it is a beautiful thing and ben and jerry is, is just the latest and a growing list of companies that have decided to boycott israel. it's an issue that sees tempers flare on both sides of the conflict. so here at our tea,
we put it up for debate. i don't think this is gonna make a bit of difference in israeli policy because it's so clearly so transparently an american company caving in to, to, to a mob demand. what we're seeing is some consumer power on the rise. this is not about video, for example, advising or lobbying supermarkets to stop selling ban injuries, foods and products. this is about consumers. i think the significance of this, however, is that this is coming from a u. s. company and a few months back the u. s. was going completely in a different direction. they were recognizing in jerusalem as is really and moving forward to, you know, recognizing the occupied territories as such. the left wing mom tries to take lots of complex situations like policing in america. we're like israel's conflict with
her neighbors and turn them into clear black and white right and wrong. when that's not the reality. if consumer power is growing, now you can call that left his mob or whatever. you know, if people see george floyd being suffocated under the knee of a policeman, then will sympathize and you can call the left is small but, but i think it's just natural that people simplified and take action. they can take a moral stand and say, well i'm, i don't want to do anything with that product. that's the kind of double standard of people say offensive things across the globe. you mentioned what happened in minnesota where's been injurious boycott minnesota. i could point out more than offensive things being done in countries around the world. oppression being done, countries around the world. where is the boy out there when we're just going to focus in on israel and say, uh huh. someone in israel did something that was offensive to an error, therefore we must boy, con israel. it does suggest to me the sort of absurd double standard in this absurd
obsession. that does make me make me very suspicious of an anti semitism at work. the issue of settlement with, she's not, you know, happening one month ago or one year ago. it has been happening for, you know, essentially, or something. people are being kicked out of their houses, sometimes violently, sometimes under the premise or the guys of law and other people, other ethnic city coming and taking their place. you know, this has gone too long and every now and then because this issue is being solved, then it will resurface long standing grievance every now and then you know, is shown bear in front of everybody and people remind themselves to make a moral stance. we're seeing a different path emerging in the middle east. think we're seeing countries like the united arab emirates, bahrain morocco saying you know what, what's best for our joint future in the middle east jewish era,
but like muslim in jewish like it's not boy cutting and shunning, but actually coming together, working together, investing together, collaborating together, and i would humbly suggest that the united arab emirates model abraham affords model of investment in collaboration and mutual recognition will produce a better future for everyone in the middle east than some sort of silly boy cutting, pushed by americans who knew very little about the reality on the ground, while museums hard hit by the pandemic locked downs, are having a hard time luring back visitors, the world's top free porn website is lending a helping hand port. and help has launched an interactive art guide with video reenactments of famous nude paintings from history, prestigious museums. but this attempts to renew, but this attempt to renew interest in the classics appears to have left some high ro galleries rather unsatisfied as our teeth. charlotte davinsky reports from paris . great works of art celebrated for centuries. priceless
beauty. now would they all being compared to put no free? yes, you heard me correctly works by cool bat titian and monday are among those being touted by one adult website as the original source of last. it's now taking advantage of bringing high bro arts to move bry website highlighting the finest boobies the world has ever seen and turning them into live performances. by act is, guess i should go and check them out again. then with some fresh eyes. ah, pull the phone with me mooning over the ship and i told
the whole team to put in a contemporary setting it's this guy is being the of them more than cool and shondra to talk monday the office in and last one on the list is my favorite because it is so rude. this one is for you. yeah. yeah. know what i mean. ah, which is the? well, that made me go a little bit to tingley though it sent shivers down the spines not in a good way. the, the in florida,

a little on the side of pornography. i imagine it was for some it is pre pornography. yes. when they did up on know that he was supposed to kill, don't say no, just not at all. i don't think so because i think porn is an industry that is done for the goal of having an orgasm. and here if there is no org and then all we are very, very sensitive, this video, usually unethical and not verily goals. so i think there must do more to make them more interesting before comparing it to art. let's leave to art what he's art did. not photographic it because the, the new day doesn't mean for no reason relation between noon and pornographic, leaving the debate about where the ponies off off is poor, reaching a climax, geology ski off the parents. okay. i'm just going to take another look because, well, you know, really enjoy the oh, its been a whole give me. well,
ah, ah, the news years ago, very previous read can do right now the children, the offspring of these acadias are crawling on me. there are more than 3000 species, periodical cicadas worldwide. they're found on every continent. 1 except in article, but it's only here in the eastern half the united states that we have 17 and 13 year periodical, kate, as part of what makes.
