tv News Al Jazeera April 30, 2015 2:00pm-3:01pm EDT
joining us, the news is next from london. this is al jazeera. good to have your company, i am david foster you are watching the al jazeera news hour live from london. this is some what we have coming your way. two next 60 minutes. >> look at the damage, and right through this area, here there isn't one home left standing. >> and many many people believe the capitol cat moon do, two more survivors have been rescued from underneath the rubble. >> at least 15 protestors
have been hurt in clashes with police, in the worst political balance for a decade. greece's finance minister facing protest tors as the government weres new concessions. one of nasa's most fruitful missions is about to conclude. including the announcement to young footballer who died of heart failure. he collapsed during a match. the work continues pretty much end leslie in nepal. there's been a rare moment of joy five days after the terrible earthquake. rescue crews managed to pull this 15-year-old boy from the collapsed ruins of the hilton hotel in the capitol cat moon
do. he was brought out of the rubble to cheering crowds. he is recovering in hospital. spoke for the first time about his ordeal. >> i didn't know if i was alive or dead. it was all dark, i found wet clothes squeezed them and drank the water. i was trapped but i could move around by crawling in the rubble. a 20-year-old woman rescued as well, but bad weather and block roads made it all very very difficult the government under pressure to respond and ask for more helicopters to try to get out to those fort osmose inaccessible parts. while the official death toll is 5,800 with rescue crews unable to get into certain places that is likely most people believe to rise significantly. estimates of 8 million people
effected more than a quarter that is of nepal's population. and it is thought that rebuilding could cost $5 billion or more. 20% of the country's g.d.p. take a look at these pictures. remember the quake struck east of katmandu? taken by a tourist 13 miles out. known as nepal's cultural gem. and not surprising in fact as you can see. >> obuildings are badly damaged or destroys by the earthquake. and the aftershocks. we managed to get a team into a remote region in nepal's east massive damage there after the earthquake, sin due it is called a rural district, joust side
katmandu, 1600 people confirmed debt, but it is feared the number may be as high as 5,000. five days after this struck, trying to go through their homes. it is just a pile of rubble. people still in shock. it is racialble because only one child died when the quake struck this tiny settlement, and over there look, the children just still in shock really people not sure what to do, where to go. this entire district has really been untouched by help for so many days. only now is aid getting through, and that's only a small number of tents and some food, it is a critical situation here without any shadow of doubt but looking
here i still can't take in how no more than one child dies. most people were this the fields so that's a reason why it happened this way. but look at the damage. and right through this area. here, there isn't one home left standing. >> and as we join in katmandu about 30-kilometers away from where andrew was, it is now that we are seeing the damage in the outer parts of nepal and we are seeing how many people have lost their lives. how many have lost their homes only now can they start to build off picture of how badly damage the entire country may be that's right but it is still only a fraction of what the entire picture is. andrew was able to make it to one direct area, but there is so many we haven't gotten to, the government themselves haven't been able to get to
yet. and you know, there still in the capitol there's still a constant reminder of the devastation here. we can see rubble everywhere we go, and right now where i am standing there's this smell, the stench, going through the air and we are sure that it is that of bed dodd byes. there's so many. >> cos around us that haven't been recovered yet. there's been some movement of the rubble looking for survives. there's so much bad news going on, but through this we do get some good news. the two people that have been pulled out alive but it is also people here getting on with their lives. and i went around the city today just to see how people are trying to get some sense of normalcy. this wedding is taking place just five days after the earthquake struck. it is initially canceled because many of the guests here themselves were sleeping outside in tents. now there's no open
celebration, but they decide sod go down with the scaled down ceremony today. >> even though we canceled the wedding it won't change anything. it's been anything but normal for those still sleeping outside. these only provide a ceremony toen protection, they are trying to move on, but it is hard to do that when one can't even go home. >> i would like to move on, but i can't, i am confused. how will i manage the expenses it's very perplexing. >> the terrain makes living here difficult and few things are now normal. but the fact that people can live through these conditions day after day is a credit to how resilient they are. >> is they can't escape some of the things you point out the fact that you can smell
the weather is hot or cold, or rainy, it is changing the entire time, and the warnings about the possibility of disease, we have had those for a few days is there any sign that some people are succumbing to this? or perhaps not yet. >> well, the one issue is so many of then't hows here overflowing with people. a lot of them haven't been able to gauge who is still sick or might be getting sick from any number of diseases. that are hitting this place. there have been worries about epodics of january das malaria, thousands have been leaving by bus for villages that haven't been effected because now more buss are available, like we said, we are only now slowly piecing together the true picture of the devastation of what has happened're in nepal. >> around 300 of them freed
from the forest, and the army saying it had also found a second group. evan has been following that story from nigeria's capitol. >> well we spoke directly to nigeria's spokesperson that says the identities of the 293 women and girls who were rescued is still being entertained. he explained it is incredibly remote and difficult area in which to get information from. you can only access many parts of it from the air. and that this process of screening and profiling these individuals to figure out who they are and where they came from is still going on. now the issue of whether they are from the school, the school where more than 200
girls were kidnapped remains open. that the mill fair is saying is they are not ruling that out, because these individuals have been kept for an incredibly long period of time. so potentially some of them could be from the school. in general this rescue is a huge morale boost so the nigerian forces to many people they are hoping the fact that these individuals have been rescued could possibly lead to other individuals who have been kidnapped, to their homes and many are hoping that this is a signal that the last strong hold which is the forest is about to be taken back under the control of the nigerian military. >> in africa, the u.n. warning there can be political chaos there as protests continue. in the capitol against the president at least 15 people demonstrating have been hurt. the latest unrest entering day 5.
only two terms allowed by law. it's been described by the biggest police crisis since the civil war of 2005. a senior diplomate has warned about suppressing political opposition. >> i left the president with the thought that this country with it's complicated history, is like a boiling pot, and if you try to put a lid on that pot it doesn't stop boiling. it risks boiling over. and reiterated our strong view again that there be space for opposition and peaceful criticism going forward. and that all sides both the government and the p osix should above all refrain from violence and intimidation.
malcolm web -- some kind of outcome. >> all the demonstrators. withdraws his bid for a third term. in the presidential election. we just heard a short while ago on local radio stations being reported that the policeman has shot dead a soldier on the streets. that we just explain what the soldiers have been doing so it is the police that most of the locations where the protestors and the police have been clashing but they haven't been joining in, they have just been monitoring and observing a couple of times
they have seen negotiating between the soldiers and the protestors. sometimes urging the police to use less restraint. of course, if this is confirmed that the policeman has shot dead a soldier that will increase tension between the army and the police if that does deteriorate, of course that increases the chances of the army, actually trying to take control themselves. >> i am wondering whether the current president is actually unpopular generally because his point is that listen, i was put in place for my first term, therefore that doesn't count, i was then elected for what you guys are saying is a second term, but in fact it was my first election, so it should be able to have another go at it, he sort of has a point. is he just so unpopular that the general population want him out no matter what.
>> well, firstly on the arguments as to whether or not he should run again, his sup effort political oppositioners say the constitution presidents can serve two terms. they also say that presidents must be elected in a national election. and as you just said, the supporters say in 2005, the first term he was elected by parliament not by the population. however, there's another document that stipulates there's two terms and that was a peace deal that was signed that ended the civil war, and that states that the president request only oserve two terms. so it is clear there is a limit of serving two terms. also with regarding to the constitution other people say it is clear and this is just a misinterpretation. but all the protestors we have spoken to, say they don't have a lot of confidence in the government.
they complain a lot about corruption and so on. people didn't take to the streets nor the ten years that the government has been in power but it seems now they have reached breaking points and this issue of term limits is what has brought it to a head. >> okay, we will leave it there malcolm, thank you. >> malcolm web reporting there, still to come. >> adan in the south of yemen here, where much of the war has been playing out we'll have a special report from inside that port city. plus. >> they are desperate for new lives we meet the migrants trying to reach europe through lawless libya. and is this really the beautiful game? find out why it has gone ugly on and off the field. in brazil.
yes men's presidential office has told international embassies in the port city of aid ton make sure that no houthis fighters are on their premises. the city has been a battleground send the coalition launched air strikes more than a month ago. the government says it now has proof that there are iranians on the ground, helping the rebels. al jazeera has that story. adan has become a vital battleground in the war in yemen. progovernment fighters say they are gaining have edge tooic territory at the airport. but beyond that, people say it is the houthis who seem to be gaining ground. they say the rebels are shelling their neighborhoods and pushing people from their homes. the houthis have also stormed a hospital, leaving behind people in need of care. >> they continue to shell
places where they know women and children gat. most people have fled and only a few are left in adan. the houthis shelled our homes and robbed the people. >> but a houthis spokesman denied allegations of targeting civilians and torture. our opponents have accused us of killing a demonstrator. we ask the family to help was the investigation, and move him to the hospital, but they refused and buried him. >> adan is a port city in the south. it's location is important because it is near the gulf of adan, and offers easy access to the red sea. it became a base of operations. for the president after he was forced to leave the capitol earlier this year. despite weeks of air strikes the houthis still control large parts of yemen. and they are well armed. the government says that iran and hezbollah are partners with the rebels something the
houthis deny. >> let me tell you that the minister of defense has been kidnapped in an operation led by an iranian. according to the u.n. more than 1,000 people have died since the war began about 12 million people desperately need food and water. numbers that will only grow as the fighting continues. al jazeera. >> now sources are telling us that syrian government forces have hit parts of it lib and aleppo with barrel bombs killing a number of civilians. the government lost key parts of the province to rebels this week, forcing them back. katelyn mcgee has more. >> these women and children appear to have been held by rebel groups in syria since august 2013. there are about 90 of them, and they are believed to have come from the government strong hold.
rebels say they want a prisoner swap, appealing to the president. please, go quickly to negotiations. >> rebel fighters have made progress through the province this week. the government retaliated with barrel bombs on districts filled with civilians. there's a new alliance, including al quaida front who have gained ground. >> the syrian were surprised really were not prepared. we estimate the number 15,000 they had been working very professionally on three access and that using double tactics one of them warfare with suicide and bombing and the other like a classical army they had tanked and armored vehicles and artillery. >> the government has intensified it's attacks on
rebel controlled areas. once a financial capitol rich in business as well as culture and history has now been reduced to rubble. >> even just outside the capitol, people are vulnerable to attacks from the government, the forces still have the advantage of air power even in areas where they have lost on the ground. al jazeera. >> from the secretary of state, once again for regime change in syria saying the country has no future under the president. after more than four years of fighting. in washington, d.c. this is a regime that has lost all sense of any kind of responsibility to it's own people. and that is why there must be a transition from the a sad regime towards a government that represents all of the
people and can repair this extraordinary damage to syria, unite the country protect all minorities, and provide a legitimate future. the other part of the problem is asaad is busy destroying the country in his own interests, he is enabling and attracting terrorists to the country, who are having the further negative impact on the region. that's why he has lost all legitimacy with respect to his ability to be able to be a part of the long term future of the country. well the head of foreign policy for the union has been in tunisian for the talks on the migrant crisis. many of those who lose their lives come through libya where smugglers have taken advantage of the political instability. there are two rifle
governments in libya, one in the capitol the other hundreds of miles away in the port of that brook, and the u.n. has given those two governments until sunday to come up with some kind of political agreement to try to solve the migrant crisis. this report. from central libya. >> they come from different countries. in the scuderia dessert in southern libya. each left a story of hardship behind each had strong hopes for the future, but for judy it all ended in a detention center. she had decided to leave ethiopia after her husband dies. >> they caught me in the dessert. so i came -- one week here.
like two weeks -- i quantity to leave this place. i want to start my life. >> these are only a fraction of the hundreds of thousands of migrants. nobody knows exactly how many, who are waiting for the opportunity to reach europe. >> the country has become a transit point, many of the migrants stay here for several months to earn enough money to cross the mediterranean. >> there are hundreds of kilometers of empty beaches. now typically migrants are gathered the spots like this one, away from the city. and then at night the boats sail off. >> there's little control. the coast guards have limited means and rarely go out. there's bun vessel available it was donated by the e.u., it is for short patrols. >> we need support from the land forces. they should try to stop people before they board the boats. once at sea, it is very
difficult fortous catch them. >> they are also few monitoring points that overlook the coast. but the current law lessness has allowed smugglers to flourish. there are about nine known depasture points. and many more further west. >> we warned and asked for support, but because of the political divisions that the e.u. is not assisting we have four vessels but they are held in italy because of the situation, they don't recognize the tripoli government. all of the departures are from the western side. somewhere near here that they have set off a few weeks ago. he left his wife and two children promising to find a job and to take care of them. it is not easy, right now everything is money if you have money you are everything. for over.
>> going home won't be easy either. there are few embassies left to assist, and authorities don't have the means to deport the migrants. for now they are stuck in turmoil, al jazeera in central libya. >> pakistani taliban boarders her school bus and shot her in the head because of her outspoken support for girls education.
malala last year became if you think yo ohs winner of the nobel peace prison. correspondent in pakistan. >> an anti-terrorist squad has sent at least ten people involved in the attack to 25 years in prison. it was handed over by the military the military says it was able to arrest the key people involved inty tack back in 7, which gave them vital information and led to the arrest of all ten member. however, four members are still said to be at large possibly hiding across the border in afghanistan where the hall ban leader is also based. it must be remember that they have taken responsible for this particular attack. >> vietnam has been celebrating 40 years since it's victory over the united states.
there were 6,000 -- formally saigon, the capitol then of prou.s. south vietnam. now the fall of saigon marked the end of the u.s. involvement after a decade long where are. 3 million vietnamese and 58,000 u.s. soldiers died. still the. co, exactly a week until the general election, a look at the country's changing political landscape, plus. the government services in greece are being asked to give over their cash. a race to the top this man really did have a mountain to climb, and he didn't waste any time. details later on this this news hour, so stay with us if you can.
god to have your company. this is the al jazeera news hour. time to run through the global headlines. two people have been rest queued five day after the earthquake killed at least 5,800 people. the united nations is more people in remote rural areas that they are in desperate need of help. a senior u.s. diplomate told the president that he riskses fueling further protests if he continues to stifle political opposition. antigovernment demonstrators have been holding rallies and burning and looting cars. five days against pierre's decision to run for a third term. yemen's presidential office is asking for international embassies to make sure there are no houthis fighters on their premises. it has become a big battleground in the war in yemen. going to take a look at the
earthquake with some detail. cad car is a national, he lives here in london. he joins me in the studio. you explain when we spoke to you that you suffered a family loss, your cousin's daughter your niece had died. how -- the other members of the family now coping? because eight-kilometers away from katmandu, pretty close. >> yeah, currently the situation is devastating. people are living in fear. they are sleeping in fear, and they are in a difficult situation. >> the blue in this case --
yes. and the advice is like firstly to collect the data. >> for instance, was the family given any help be your niece, or did they have to deal with this on their own. >> we have a trust over there, which is really good. and on this occasion, we have to cremate -- they cremate all together in a joint -- i think it was like 14 cremated at one time. so usually it is very
religious, and they do tut on an individual basis. >> the most important. >> the most important. and in your mount that you are in touch with, it is not just that one i think you are in touch with quite a few relief efforts. are you finding that they are managing to stay so far disease free. >> yes currently i haven't heard -- this is mainly in the north i haven't heard of any diseases spread across. but hopefully it will stay. >> finger crossed. >> you are trying to put together some help, some aid get money at the moment, i think you have raised over 440,000. >> one of the big questions now, in these efforts is this money. cooing in from here, money coming in from here, how do you make sure you personally, the people who give money to, how do you make sure it gets to the right person, who do you decide who is the right
person. >> we are in discussions. the relief friends myself and my friends in the u.s., who is leading this earthquake relief friend, we are in discussions and we are trying to find out when you discuss this what problems do you see. >> where it is required the most obviously cat man valley and also north of katmandu and various other locations where there have been a lot of casualties. do you identify one particular problem in all of these areas or do you look at one area, and say we can make a big difference here. and that other people look after. >> i think if we look at various areas, one particular. >> are you worried the money won't be used properly. >> yes, that is our greatest concern, because we need to
make it very transparent it has to be transparent and it has to be -- we need to find reliable people who can reach to the most needed ones. >> why was nepal in h such a position where the buildings were ramshackle in many cases where it didn't seem like they were prepares even though there had been warnings? why do you think in your opinion so many people were left extremely exposed. >> yeah, they used to say when i was back in nepal we used to hear this sort of earthquakes the massive earthquakes happened last in 70 years last one that happened was 1934, and we had heard a few things from my parents and the older generations how they coped at that time, but i don't know. the it is such a difficult situation, we were not prepares and not able to prepare for this mostly the
casualties were in the the older areas where the buildings were older. >> thank you for coming in one once again to update us on what is happening and share with us one small story of what has happened to a particular family in nepal. >> thank you. >> students in the italian city ma lan have been on the streets making their thoughts known about a upcoming expo there. a rather large exhibition, and they say the money spent on it should go to economic growth and jobs instead of what they say is an expensive vanity project. organizers have been arguing the event could make more than half a billion dollars. dozens of tax workers in the capitol have protesting outside the finance minister about low wages. greece is entering a new round of talks to talk about
retomorrows it hopes which will unlock vitally needed bail out funds. greece faces more than $1.1 billion in debt refunds. in around about two weeks time. all of those talks between greece and the your pen creditors have gone on for months public entities are being asked to help keep the government afloat. >> it is not every greece village that get it's own field. the three time mayor has managing it so well it has $17 million in the bank. so despite the fact that subsidies fell, they still feed their neediest cob stipwents. now the government is forcing them to lend it's savings and
many here are not prepared to surrender that. >> the country needs our support, but we need to know when we need the money we will have it. if not we won't be able to buy fuel, we won't be able to pay salaries or pick you can rubbish, we won't be able to do the basics low pressure the flow of financial resources has stopped. >> the longer these drag out, the deeper the government has to dig to buy time it has already with held $1.5 billion and borrowed another half a billion from pension funds. now it is hoping to borrow $2 billion more from municipalities. >> it isn't just local government that sected. universities public trusts even the national library must all surrender their cash. they have already lost $16 billion when the government bonds they held where are discounted. so they are deeply skeptical.
we know there is a bad psychology. they are afraid this government too will take their savings what it wants wants wants to do give itself a bit of financial padding. the european central bank has cut off liquidity we haven't received any money from abroad since last july. >> ultimately, mayor say they will comply. because if the ship of state sinks lifeboats won't last much locker. corinth in southern greece. well, this time in about a week it won't be the unknown, or maybe slightly closer to what is happening the u.k. voting one of the most closely fought decades. the poll suggests that neither the severs will be able to govern alone so britain almost certainly
looking at another four years of coalition governments. al jazeera looks at how politics have changed. this election looks likely to shatter the two systems that has existed in britain since the end of the second world war. in 1945, the labor party took office their crowning achievements the construction of the national health service, but in 1951, the conservative party became the first under winston church hill, they held power all the way through until 1964, the last of the 1960's then belonged to the labor party and the conservatives took over again on most of that decade was shared between the two parties and at 1 point, the conservatives only had a minority government.
margaret thatcher came to power she alters the course, and they then held office, all the way through until 1997 which saw the birth of new labor and tony blare becoming the prime minister. labor then were in governments all the way through until 2010. that's when things started to get difficult for the conservative party, because they have to go into a coalition, with the liberal democrats. but now, five years on from them there's been an explosion of new parties all vying for authority on the left the green party the scottish and nationalists and on the right the u.k. independent party. this is truly uncharted territory in british politics. >> more from lawrence lee over the course of the next seven days or so, the last four years sending back inning from the plan chet is close toast the sun in about an hour's time, nasa's
messenger mission to mercury will finally come to an end as it crashes into the surface of the planet. our science estor on how it has transformed our information about the smallest planet. >> it is only slightly bigger than the moon, and it is the closest planet to the sun but until the messenger spacecraft arrived in the orbit in 2011, little was known about the planet. since then the seven scientific instruments have been feeding back volumes of data it is rah very massive solid core, much bigger and it is now almost assures that there is a liquid shore surrounding this, which is producing the magnetic field which is similar to the magnetic fold of the earth the moon like surface in unprecedents detail, scarred by the collisions of asteroids and meet rights.
it recorded surfacen't thes between minus 170 and plus 420 degrees and it mapped ancient lava flows and discovered ice at the planet's polls covered by a layer of dark mysterious material. >> this dark material is in fact organic delivered to mercury by the same objects that brought the water on. probably from the outer solar system not only of water and ice, but of what on our planet were once some of the old being blocks of organic chemistry and life. now the craft's fuel has run out, and it is powerless to stop gravity from dragging it towards the planet it's impact added another small crater to the already pitted surface.
so it is placing us in time and space within the universes, and within the confinement of the solar system. very important to know these things. this image published hours before the demise, is one of many that research team says lit release in the weeks and months ahead. until then, scientists will be working through the huge volume of data. al jazeera. >> we are with space expert the head of the science group. looking at those pictures it makes you third what a wonderful place that our solar system is. mercury in particular is an end member of the solar system. a very violent history and
that's one thing we can see in the imimagines. one of the most remarkable things is that before we have seen less than half of the surface, and now that's been completely filled in so we have seen the whole of mercury, been able to happen it and look at the field and so on. so we have more information. look at a list of things we have learned about and say that's okay that's okay, what was your wow moment. >> for me the happening. where vessel seen less than half of the surface now with have seen all of it. the interim structure is one of the things, but perhaps the stand out is water. >> by the way that's not mercury. >> right. >> but we are sending spacecraft which will go close to the sun. the craters in mercury. >> other than learning for the sake of learning, and
being interest to know what was on the other side, what sort of human kind was the benefit. in context with the others so mercury is an end member, the next manage et out which is sort of similar to the earth but turns out very differently. and then mars that could have been life on mars and then jupiter, saturn, and neptune. it is downgraded. >> a nice planet. >> and ice there too the polar p cas is that correct. >> that's correct. just last night, there was images which is about to get to puto. it gets there in july.
huge distance, and it has come there very quickly. does it amaze you we have this spacecraft, not much bigger than a car going 2,000-kilometers wide, at speeds you could not possibly imagine and it can still teach us something before it disappears in. >> yes. it is a fly by kind of mission, when it has done it's characterization of the system it will actually be able to go on and look at another type of object. so all this is telling us about man kind's place in the universes, and how our planet fits in. thank you very much indeed. >> we have this coming up on the news hour, sport here, blazing a trail in the nba. and we have lee as well.
let's get to sport. >> yeah, sadly indeed. a 24-year-old belgium footballer has died. in a training match gregory martin collapsed on the field 20 minutes into the game. he was given emergency treatment before being rushed to hospital. >> where he was placed in an induced coma, but his condition worsened and the family decided to switch off
the life support system. tweeted that they wish his friends and family strength. almost a year since the world cup in brazil, and while the country is known as the heart land, the gang is facing increasing. it is expected to highlight that nearly every team will be bankrupt if they operated as businesses. the issue is expect to get worse. many clubs are resorting to bank loans to stay afloat and they have a collective debt of around $1.3 billion. and so the president sent legislation last month that
will give the club up to 20 years to pay back their taxes. and while the clubs have long profiting to selling to other countries more talented youngsters are going to teams in the middle east to raise revenue. we are joined by brazilianble fooer, from south palo, her welcome is rather depressing for football fans. why is it in such a mes? >> the clubs have been -- the difference now is they had a few good years and now it is. coming. but clubs are dealing with -- some of them are improving their governments they are opening to new nonfred tear business practices and others -- which is the easiest thing to do and doesn't solve the bigger issues. all the clubs are going through momentary issues because they are building and the like. i would say it is not bigger than the one we had in the
early 2,000s when all the clubs were doing terrible, ex-effort political oppositioning all players to europe and japan but there is the frustration because we have had a good few years. >> i covered the world cup in brazil and saw how devastated people were there with the failure on the pitch might things be any different. >> i know this comes as a shock, but the clubs are more important. if there is no economic change, not only in the brazilian economy but also in the football league. point change the fact that each year about 1,000 leave brazil not only for europe, but the middle east, and everywhere else. i would say the ruling would be great but not very good for south america football. the football products not only the top notch leave, be uh the medium players the bad
players all of them are leaving and the clubs are getting addicted to the mind set that they are not putting on a good show. it is also important that fifa acts and that it will be good for football and not only for the players to be here for longer but for the fans. >> in a world can all those that love the game be optimistic about it's future without economic change, no. >> thank you very much for that let's move on they will tour pakistan next month the first test nation to visit the country. they will play 2-2020 matches. know team had visited since the attack in 2009, six cricketers were injured when the team was targeted by gunman.
dominatingdominating the first test, a feast of runs reaching 537 for 5. just over two days away that is generating hundreds of millions of dollars. mayweather unified the world wetter wight title the thousand tickets that were available sold out in 50 seconds. after beating the trail blazers. 26-points which is crucial as he won the game 99-93. for the third time in five years now they take on the top seeded golden state on sunday.
the in fact travel is about to take place, it is a big deal in the sport where teams select the best young players in order to be selected for the draft many take part in a week long event. raul explains. >> now the toast itself is called the wonder lick test. >> now it's used to measure a person's ability to think learn of problems and follow instructions. it is a 12 minute examining i will show you one of the easy ones. now you have to decide which comes next, eight four. two, 1 half, quarter the
answer an 8th of course, the scores do vary depends on what position you play, and quarterbacks like new york giants tend to do better. other positions like wide receiver they average much lower. manny has so far won two for the new york giants be uh the toast doesn't always get it right, back in 1983, dan scores just 15 on the test. that's 9 points below the quarterback average. but a year later he was named the most valuable player and is regarded as one of the greatest of all time. >> imagine climbing out one of the world's steepest mountains and breaking a record for it. that's what swiss climber has done. becoming the fastest man on the italian alps. he reached the summit in a time of just one hour 46 minutes. i have sat there for breakfast, how do you do it in a lifetime? thank you.
