2:04 pm

2:05 pm
a major incident in the british capital. we also saw a large demonstration on saturday in which people were incredibly unhappy with what has gone on in terms of the actions on the british government. things turning quite enough to be there at ton the the thing is that oma chrome cases are increasing exponentially. the world health organization is warning that every 3 days we could see the number of oma chrome very in cases doubling. what we are seeing though is between the virus itself and the measures that countries are having to take to try and stop the spread of the virus. it's going to mean it's not a very merry christmas for many people across europe. meantime, if you vaccinated recovered or test negative for cova jewel perhaps on a digital path that allows you to get in and outs and around for christmas. however,
2:06 pm
soon you might, you might not actually need to physically show a q code on your phone because the swedish companies have vented a covert passage implanted on the skin in the form of a tardy micro ship. we talked to the people behind it or their immersive technology that can be used for many different things. and right now it's very convenient to have a passport for ways success to build on your impact. so in case your phone runs out about 3, it's always accessible to ah, the implant is readable by and the smartphone that has and if the function. so i can go to a restaurant or a movie theater. i just show them my arm and swipe me with a smartphone and then that pops up the passport that i have on my chip. so you
2:07 pm
don't need a special ed for this kind of similar to a q r code. just up, of course i don't want the cure code on my skin, right. i john amazon's loggerheads with from the moment of the company's cheap book deliveries independent bookstore. some publishers say they've been on the cuts and could go to business because of it. and according to the french politicians, therefore, the solution is to many commerce and charged their customers more. charlotte to bend ski reports on it. amazon watch out. france is coming off to you. well, at least after you're cheap delivery costs for books in a fresh swipe, but the internet giant, french lawmakers say amazon must charge more for book deliveries. one operator is currently offering almost free delivery of books regardless of the quantity and the
2:08 pm
amount of the purchase. while no other player is able to provide such a bargain to readers, it isn't therefore clear that these commercial practices a new form of price competition, which no longer allows the law, the single price of books to produce its full effect. until now, amazon has been charging the legal minimum for delivery of books of a single sent, and that has left many french publishers and stores like this simply unable to compete. and that is problematic for a country where independent bookshops are big business. there are more than 3300 stores here, significantly more than in many other countries in the european union. this new law is being welcomed by booksellers who say it will help protect publishers. to independent bookstores don't sell the same things as other sales points. they have more 1st time novelists, more challenging publications that as a lot hundreds of publishers and writers to exist. amazon had lobbied hard against
2:09 pm
the law and says it's free deliveries were a boon to those who live in rural communities. today, 90 percent of french municipalities did not have a bookstore on their territory. and more than 40 percent of amazon's book shipments are destined for postal codes without a bookstore. the cost of such a measure and the purchasing power would amount to more than $250000000.00 euros per year. the reality is that this will see many people who not only use amazon, but other online retailers to pay out more. so are people ready to dig deeper into their pockets to support these independent stores? or should i be, i am ready to pay me or because i prefer to go to a bookstore to see several books and make a choice. i find it better. i prefer to go and bind the bookstore directly. so here i think it's reassuring to the book industry outside of amazon. the loading amazon amazon shouldn't have a monopoly on international sales because you can feel it locally in from may. so
2:10 pm
if we can remedy this, unfair competition looked so much the better. okay. benchmark. because i think it's important in society to help local businesses and especially booksellers sample i booked directly from the bookseller rather than amazon. but of course, it's also important to keep an eye on good value for money or should be washed. i'm ready to play more. our booksellers offer us the surveys, which is not bad, and advised that amazon cannot necessarily give us. i think it's a good idea to help them. well, i thought i'd find that a sales platform cannot replace booksellers with their advice, but we must admit that it's extremely practical either when we're far from the points of sale or when i'm looking for a very specific product. and i know that on this platform, i will find it. nevertheless, we must maintain a balance of all sales channels and indeed, one must not be able to kill the other. and especially folks, elena, this is not the 1st time that france has had amazon in the firing line. the country has been gunning for the online giant is pay a minimum global digital tax. while european union regulators have also accused the
2:11 pm
site of using data from independent merchants to unfairly competing against them with its own products. amazon has also seen itself face spines for abusing dominant market positions in italy. recently, to all of this is making europe a much more hostile environment for the company. and it seems that this is only the beginning. it is a fight of unequal forces. legislators must protect the week from the powerful they are the gulliver's, some we are lilliputian. next to them, it shall be done through a law that has binding power in this case, a lot on shipping face. they are growing day by day, like all big tech corporate. this is exponential growth. how can we resist these almighty giants, monopolies become omnipotent, more powerful than states? this is alarming. we have become hostages. i hope the legislators will include a new anti monopoly law in their agenda. the question, these monopolistic structures which absorb everything like a black hole that is hiring people for its warehouses, its platform done,
2:12 pm
and is maintaining purchasing power by lowering the price bar. it looks like a strong argument, but that's actually not the case. after all, has small store need 3 employees, whereas a big chain like amazon needs only one and 2 out of 3 individuals do not get a job. this causes unemployment, poverty, and social inequality mer connect to chris novel. finding his career's been killed off as swiftly as his populace sit. com character he, he portrayed after sexual assault allegations of emerged. it's certain no 2 millions of courses mister big in the series, sex and the city. but his role came to an abrupt end on episode one of the recent re boot the acts has now been dropped by his agent, while fellow stars are distancing themselves. and that despite his strong denials and so far, the absence of any police investigation north is also lost at $12000000.00 deal to sellers to killer brad in the wake of the allegations exercise equipment company. palatas also dropped its viral advert featuring the actor as well. shortly after
2:13 pm
the sexton city reboot, premiered to women anonymously accused north of sexual assault in 2004 and 15 that a 3rd woman came forward with a similar claim. well, chris noth admits meeting with him, but his says that no line was of across he said cheerless and commentator chadwick more talk to a bit more about how easy it is these days to ruin someone's life before there's been any due process, a crime doesn't have to be committed in order for you to have your reputation road and hollywood. now with this actor, we don't know there hasn't been any criminal investigation yet, hasn't been the trial. obviously, we're not the evidences, but that also kind of falls in line with a lot of what we're seeing with this sort of lead me to movement where you have basically allegations that come after powerful men decades later, years and years later. you know, that's never a good thing, especially when you're looking for evidence to convict someone. especially if chris not had actually sexually assaulted someone. there been plenty of times in which
2:14 pm
it's been proven that a woman falsely accused demand for vindictive reasons. it really discredits and does a grave injustice. people who are actually becomes a sexual assault. we need to realize that there are actual sexual criminals out there and violent sexual vendors. you should be arrested. and the more that you sort of muddy the system, the worse it is for everyone and more of the people that get away with it. developing stories and tracking to not in front to women of being held in paris and stole there by an assailant under the nice reports and the suspects. note of mental health issues and is demanding an audience farley with a french minister of justice. please sets up a security code the run 2 hours ago. want people to stay away from that area or the operation got underway. situation still, the sound remains tense. shing, out into national world. is it 10 for moscow with me, kevin? oh, in hi there. thanks for checking in, coming up, major us network increase to pay compensation to a teenager, threatening them with a multi $1000000.00 laws to put the phrase him as racist. tell you more on the rest
2:15 pm
of the theories. news after the break. ah ah ah, is your media a reflection of reality? ah, in the world transformed what will make you feel safer? hi, solution for community. are you going the right way or are you being led somewhere? which direct? what is true was is great. in the world corrupted, you need to descend. ah, so join us in the depths or remain in the shallows.
2:16 pm
welcome to match hazard financial survival guide. looking forward to your benefit go. yeah. this is what happens. dimensions in brittany del at this happens. you watch kaiser report? oh, i get new. it's main street, major of suffered yet another huge, a bar, 2nd, incredibly expensive blow after a 3rd major network settled, a 275000000 dollar cold case, nbc reached a settlement then with kentucky, teenager nicholas sandman. after making it look like he committed a hate crime and a face. so for the native american man can open reports. we have a situation where nbc has reached a settlement with nicholas sandman. and at this point,
2:17 pm
they are the 3rd major network to reach a settlement. nicholas' sandman, sued cnn for $275000000.00. he sued the washington post for 250000000, and they have both settled. now, you'll recall the situation. nicholas sandman was a high school student back in january of 2019. he and his fellow classmates at covington, roman catholic high school. they were in washington, d. c. for an annual march for life, anti abortion demonstration. and at that demonstration, there was a confrontation, a standoff between himself and a native american activist named nathan phillips. now, images of that went viral and went all over social media and us media, mainstream media, social media, it's cetera, were quick to jump on the incident and say that because nicholas and i was wearing a make america great again, a hat that he and his classmates were racist, dan had graciously taunted this native american. this is some of how the media
2:18 pm
reacted at the time. disturbing viral video has marked outraged ord covington catholic high school students, locking a native american man, some of them harassing and jeering at a native american elder, disturbing viral video. show them all the teams that make america great. again, caressing a native american elder troubling incident at the foot of the lincoln memorial, nicholas sandman was only 16 years old, a minor at the time this incident took place and his image was plastered across the us media. he was accused of disrespecting, an elder, taunting a native american. he was accused of being racist. there are many, many extreme allegations were hurled against him. his face was all across social media as well as mainstream us media. but then longer video surface that showed that he and his friend had not. she hated the confrontation, he did not approach the native american. and the scene of what took place was just
2:19 pm
wildly inaccurate. the way us media portrayed the chain of events as if this group of high school boys had just randomly walked up to a native american to taunt him. it wasn't true. i mean, here's what actually happened. students from kentucky's all boy covington catholic high school, were instructed to meet on the stairs of the lincoln memorial to await their bus home. a few yards away were 5 black men who identified as hebrew israelites after nearly an hour of and during the verbal attack. the boys asked a chaperone if they could perform one of their pep rally chance to drown out the hate group. the chance attracted the attention of a group of native americans led by veteran activist nathan philip. they began to celebrate by chanting and dancing to the beat. mr. phillips began moving to his right down a line of boys, eventually stopping face to face with nick sandman. the young man remained where he had already been standing, placing his undivided attention on mr. phillips. now, at this point, nicholas sandman still has ongoing lawsuit against cbs abc news, the new york times and rolling stone magazine. so we'll see how much of
2:20 pm
a settlement is reached in those cases, but many are looking on and saying perhaps this shows that before destroying the reputation and plastering the face of someone who is not even 18 years old. all over the media, it would be good to get the fax right. first. the court hearings on the 17 plane crash have resumed in the hague. the malaysia airlines flight was on route to the time from amsterdam to color lumper when it was shut down of a separatist controlled eastern ukraine. in july 2014. all 298 people on board were killed sitting correspond that looks next that the exclusions navigations in the essence it has been one of the most politicized and scandalous trials in modern history. there was no other way could have turned out. almost 300 innocent lives were lost in the horrendous tragedy that shook the world. ah,
2:21 pm
and that 7 years since there has been no closure, every one knew it would be ugly from the get go full of politics and venom when malaysia, which own the plane. and last dozens, and dozens of citizens on that flight was excluded from the entire investigation. if you can call it that, on the very beginning, we see too much policy cindy. the idea was run to find out how this happened when all that. but the scene to be concentrated on trying to pin it on
2:22 pm
russia. already there have decided that he must be russia. we cannot accept that kind of far attitude. the netherlands form the joint investigative team to investigate what happened nominally, that excluded russia. the anti government forces in east ukraine, malaysia, of course, but it included ukraine, which itself was a suspect then rank the 9 most corrupt country in the world by ernst and young. why is that relevant? well, guess who provided most of the evidence to the prosecution? ukraine successor to the k g b, the security service of ukraine. my question is, what is the source of the tap to reports? doesn't of alt office for he's a mainly tapped conversations from the ukranian service engine. for now, i'm mainly on other any other sources. nice issue noticed have conversations from
2:23 pm
ukraine with it simply as part of what ukrainian intelligence agencies provided were alleged telephone recordings of rebel fighters where they apparently talked about downing the jet from the get go. the recordings were suspected of being manipulated and raped out of context and edited an opinion that was supported by many forensic experts zones to them. i found a total of 9 manipulations. there was a lot of editing here. this is left channel right there. just to click and different, i can see there is a difference of the noise and i also can see they are basically some kind of merging of an audio. this is entity, yes, is adequately or yes, the netherlands forensic institute itself reportedly refused to attribute the audio recordings to one of the defendants and the m. h. 17 trial. citing a lack of data to the prosecution eventually contracted an obscure lab and
2:24 pm
lithuania to verify the recordings which they of course did. together with a bat 8th anonymous witnesses and a slew of and verifiable pictures from social media. the prosecution declared case closed from the russia faded archie. we have established that the russian federation was complicit in the downing of m age 17 because they made available the weapon that was used to shoot down the plane. we have all the material to substantiate that material that the defense says is full of holes. even dutch and peas were left flabbergasted when they wrote a report that ukraine wasn't at fault for allowing civilian jets to fly over an area that was a little air crossed graveyard lifted intrusiveness of i find its results disappointing. what is particularly disappointing and that there was no proper investigation of the evidence which clearly indicated that some ukrainian authorities has processed the information and realised that there was
2:25 pm
a threat of the plane crash. they very clearly knew that there was a threat. you don't need to be a forensic scientist to know that 3 days before the downing of them age, 17 ukrainian military plane was shot down in the same area. at was reportedly the twelth, ukrainian military aircraft last there in 3 months. and it was shot down at 6200 meters, well out of man pad defense system range and close at the airline a territory. dina can find in the direction to meet a campaign, his truck, and an unprecedented scale put chain russian citizens as presumed guilty. this is completely unacceptable. it was launched to compensate for lack of evidence in russia, provided a slew of evidence and findings to the joint investigative team and formation about the mitchell and how it couldn't have been the book miss. all variant in service
2:26 pm
with russia and formation about the launch site and how it is unlikely that the miss hall was fired from where the joint investigative team says it was almost everything was dismissed while the prosecution wanted was a critical piece of evidence. satellite shots of the area believed to be in possession of the united states, and which the u. s. still refuses to show to anyone. and all that, the title of the investigative judge made a legal assistance request to the us with respect to satellite images, which are allegedly available and depict the launch of a book missile. the american authorities replied refusing to show any material. the investigative judge filed a 2nd request, stressing the importance of the requested data that the american authorities again refused to show the data. it is difficult to imagine that the us, especially in these times of enmity,
2:27 pm
but concealed damage evidence that would implicate russia at ease. if we speculate easy to imagine that the u. s. would conceal damning evidence that would exonerate russia and implicate ukraine, which washington gives billions and guns an aid to that. he's what the m h 17 trial has been so far. a case built in speculation. anonymous. witnesses, ukrainian intelligence agency testimony, and of course proof from lithuanian forensic labs. while if this news edition rushes announces, said to kick out to german, diplomats in a retaliatory move. days after pearl and court claimed moscow had ordered the killing of a former chechen commander. the development comes in the wake of berlin expelling to russians after the court jailed a man for killing the former commander on german territory in 2019 moscow. immediately slander it called a political ruling,
2:28 pm
amidst general anti russian sentiment. russia denying any connection, declared the persona non grata as a symmetrical response. and that's our t's will. these at 10 from moscow with me, kevin o' in, thanks for checking in to stay with us to if you can for our next program in your part of the world after the break. oh, a welcome to max kaiser's financial survival guide. looking forward here as we go with this is what happens dimensions in britain. delica sap. if you watch kaiser report,
