1:01 pm
have there some fairly brisk winds pushing through much of iraq on it towards kuwait as actual wind again which is picked up a pace now the same time we have got winds but we've got more rain in the full cost the corruption across much of pakistan those monsoon rains that back in the fore call some heavy thunderstorms at times meanwhile temperatures very hot indeed in baghdad up to $48.00 celsius on tuesday and although of course that is typically hot this time of year that is about 5 degrees above the average for this time of year now those winds will work their way further south across into areas of assad you baby on into cattle but at the same time we have seen some showers but in particular to mt not typical for this time of year 34 minutes of rain fell in less than $24.00 i was also a huge amount but a lot for here because that is actually almost half the year the total as i say less than 24 hours the pilgrims managing to stay dry under that umbrella but there's more showers in the forecast into the southwest of yemen as we go through monday it does dry up on cheese day and it's. pretty warm elsewhere $41.00 in doha
1:02 pm
with that fairly strong breeze to say coming down from the north and we've got a few showers in the 4 cause not just the cape town but also durban in the next couple of days 14 celsius in cape town is that france lies by to 19 on tuesday with those showers. whether sponsored by cats only. it's very difficult a restaurant tour to buy shrimp with the confidence that what you're serving is going to be good seafood by nature is a hybrid sometimes using production drugs. that are not approved for use in us the f.d.a. simply isn't testing enough on the imported market to really find all of these violent residues take note at this time no.
1:03 pm
one is a problem in doha these are the top stories on al-jazeera guatemala as election officials have declared on a 100 people winner of the presidential election any result of the center right candidate a commanding lead dog of former 1st lady song to top it is. time president mockeries hopes of reelection and told this presidential election have been a severe blow the official results of the primary election show off as a candidate alberto fernandez and his running mate former president cristina fernandez de kirchner have a strong lead. and speaking exclusively to al-jazeera pakistan's foreign minister has accused the indian government of a fascist mentality of a revocation of kashmir's autonomous status. now southern savages in
1:04 pm
yemen so they committed to a cease fire in the city of aden with a saw the led coalition of these 40 people have been killed in 4 days of fighting as the u.a.e. backed forces overran government bases and the presidential palace now. the group is pitching itself as a natural partner to saudi arabia hoping to have a great a say in the future and a chapell reports. despite the shards of broken glass and burned out reminders of days of fighting people in aden are speaking of hope that they are finally being heard but that. once the ceasefire started life returned to normal police returned security returned and people cars and children started returning to the markets and music the separatist forces who represent us agreed to the cease fire that was proposed by saudi arabia and the coalition forces and i hope that saudi arabia and the coalition can provide justice for the southern citizen. as his presidential

palace fell to separatists control months or hadi yemen's internationally recognized leader was in saudi arabia where he spends most of his time as he met with the king how does own officials were publicly casting doubts about who the coalition is really supporting in yemen and aid through cells a baby the leader of the southern transitional council made his own pitch to the king from a new found position of strength is that. we're ready to work responsibly with the leadership of the arab alliance led by the great sisterly nation saudi arabia in managing this crisis we reiterate off firm position to stand firmly with the arab coalition to fight a rainy an expansion in the region led by saudi arabia we renew our confidence in the kingdom of saudi arabia and declare our readiness to work with them and through them as an ally we have proven to be a strong ally that they can trust to work with on the ground for the last 5 years
1:06 pm
unlike others who are full of empty talk. without calling for complete secession beatty's comments may allay fears of more internet scene fighting between members of the coalition. i don't think we are seeing a proxy war between the 2 allies simply different priorities and i think in the end neither of saudia arabia or north america are unhappy i think after 5 years of fighting. that they are not going to win the war against the road is they're not going to liberate. it has cost them too much already so i think they are making do with simply the king or the south completely. security returns to aden and its residents go on with their lives it appears the 4 days of violence the experience may have completely changed the lay of the land and

a russian person which is related to our great heroic history i'm very pleased that such manly and cool guys set such an example to young people in our country and show them how they should act towards russia. to hong kong now where police have fired tear gas and use battens to charge at protests. in an attempt to break up demonstrations protesters use a flash mob strategy of appearing at large shopping streets and train stations on sunday only to disperse and reappear at a different location it is the 10 weekend of unrest and hong kong are mcbride reports. another day of protest ending all those predictably in running street battles between protesters and police. this was the chimps or choi district of cowl lou where protesters had laid siege to the local police station. police responded in force. under a barrage of tear gas protesters fell back those not quick enough were arrested.
1:12 pm
some of them shouting out their names and identity numbers ha. to let others know what had happened to them the years. normally busy with shoppers and tourists some passers by got caught up in the chaos. i the day had started peacefully large protest marches against the government's controversial extradition bill which has been suspended but is claimed by pro-democracy groups as evidence of further erosion of hong kong's freedoms within china the man her life is getting tougher in hong kong people are being ignored and done can't even defend the people. thinking now they spro test across town lou was technically illegal but it didn't stop thousands from taking time. at the end most dispersed but others
1:13 pm
surrounded a police station and this is where many of the marchers have ended up a police station where the offices are now simply barricaded inside demonstrators in a wall that's gradually making itself down towards here despite warnings from police to state. the inevitable clash happened. the crowd being dispersed with rubber bullets and tear gas. protesters have adopted a hit and run strategy moving in smaller groups from one skirmish to the next to create maximum disruption. now into its 3rd month the strain on all sides is clearly showing increasing anger and violence from a minority of protesters and from police signs of stress at being on the front lines week after week of what is a political crisis. the battle in chimps choice ended in angry
1:14 pm
confrontations between police. independent monitors. journalists and local people. all locked in a seemingly endless summer of turmoil rob mcbride al jazeera hong kong. prison guards working in the unit that housed american financing and convicted sex offender jeffrey epstein said they were working extreme overtime shifts on the night he died because of staffing shortages epstein was supposed to have been checked by gods every 30 minutes and should have had a cell mate because of a previous suicide attempt. now it's one of the world's most endangered species about the mountain gorillas of central africa making a slow but fragile return from the brink of extinction since 2010 the population as has increased by a quarter to just over $1000.00 stephanie decker reports from the verona mountains
1:15 pm
and rwanda which is leading conservation efforts what you didn't thought the were at the foot of the very good mountains and getting a briefing on how to behave around the mountain gorilla that's what everyone here has come to see and they've paid $1500.00 each to spend one hour with the great apes in their habitat are you excited i am beyond excited this is international treasure that is being protected in rwanda and i'm so lucky to be able to experience it i can't wait and the cost is they put the concept when you think about it i think i think that's fair it limits access certainly to people who can afford it but i think by talking about what the mountain gorillas are providing for the communities that makes a lot of sense. this hike is not for the faint of heart it's beautiful but challenging terrain we trekked uphill for over an hour. our guide augustan
1:16 pm
shows us how gorillas get their water. and keep the energy high. and then. right in front of us a family babies mothers and the impressive great big family man the silverback. the young ones are curious we have to move back not to get too close others seem almost bored by our presence. then a display of power. we walk around to get another view it's incredible. to spout credit their bad acts just like watching us watch these great apes facing extinction just a couple of decades ago and their surprise could use the page numbers on the race.
1:17 pm
before we know it the hour is up and it's time to track back down. rhonda's tourism policy we're told is one of low volume high value visitor numbers are restricted and the prices high translates to $25.00 per minute for the hours spent with the gorillas tourists actually who come to see the girl as i understand why we've done that to understand that it's all about conservation for the species and you can even see it in the in the in the last recent sessions that we did our strategy has actually proven to be the right way to do this we've seen a 26 percent increase in the number of individuals who are in the us so it's working both on the conservation side and on the tourism side it's
1:18 pm
a fragile success story critically endangered for years and now their status has been adjusted to endangered the latest census shows or just over a 1000 gorillas spanning rwanda uganda and the democratic republic of congo from just around 200 a few decades ago but that still doesn't seem a large number when you think that it's the whole world's entire population of these incredible animals. stephanie decker al-jazeera in the middle of rwanda. i mean is a problem and or how would the headlines on al-jazeera conservative candidate callahan met a would be guatemala as the next president and action results showed he has a commanding lead of the center left contender and former 1st lady sander taught as he's likely to face major challenges implementing an immigration data with the u.s. signed by outgoing president jimmy morales. argentine president what he said

marquise hopes of reelection have been dealt a severe blow official results show argentina's opposition candidate alberto finance and his running mate former president cristina fernandez have a strong lead in the primary vote presidential elections in june and a top. pakistan's foreign minister has condemned and his decision to revoke the autonomy of india that minister of kashmir shah mahmood qureshi has told al-jazeera either the indian government has a fascist mentality towards crush made. to do in india you have a regime which has the fascist mentality that not a proof that they have is but out as has been guilty of this is the political wing of the other says. that is great concern to pakistan innocent people being attacked killed raped me and through the pellet
1:20 pm
guns using eyesight you have seen this curfew. is a communication blackout. journalism not being allowed in. the new york food or not the leader of yemen some separatists says they're committed to a cease fire in the port city of aden and wanted to work with the saudi led coalition there largely taking control of the city after 4 or 4 days of fighting rocket fire has injured 3 people near tripoli's main airport that's to spot the declaration of a truce for aid but the internationally recognized government and warlord khalifa haftar have accepted the ceasefire of a quest from the un mission in the country. those are the headlines on al-jazeera do stay with us techno is coming up next thank you for watching. in
1:21 pm
a country with high youth unemployment one again i say asian helps turn school children into entrepreneurs will go on tell us what i mean by a wide fundraiser empowering them to reclaim their futures we teach them out of bestowing my shit that is how to make the best way and build more prosperous communities some of the invest the money into the business of school for life uganda part of the rebel education series on al-jazeera. on counting the cost a new world currency to challenge the dollar facebook's global dominance faces challenges. currency wars china lets the one to appreciate is trump ratchets up the trade war the economic and environmental costs of sand extract counting the cost on al-jazeera. this is techno
1:22 pm
a show about innovations that can change lives the science of fighting wildfires we're going to explore the intersection of hardware and humanity and we're doing it in the unique way. this is a show about science blow no lies scientists. tonight techno investigates shrimp safety the seafood by nature is high risk monitoring for americans love their shrimp but most of it comes from countries that use extensive antibiotics that could make you ill now techno goes inside the federal testing program for making the food. that's supposed to protect the food supply doctors should do some more is mechanical engineer chill share the results of her investigation to how dangerous is that for human beings and i'm still taurus i'm an entomologist visitor shrimp farm in the middle of india. yes indiana that could
1:23 pm
revolutionize the industry well this is like a little laboratory here yes it is for sure santa maria it is a neuroscientist. imagine that you are one of the 1st to take a trip to mars. this is the definition of pioneering that's what makes it exciting that's our team now let's do some science. yes. hey guys and welcome to techno on phil tours joined by dr should you some are in kerosene or maria because among one of my favorite things is shrimp soon ruling away on a hot grill but i also have a fair amount of hesitation when it comes to actually knowing where that shrimp comes from then you may not realize it but shrimp raised overseas can have high levels of antibiotics and other additives that don't always pass american safety
1:24 pm
standards in america imports a lot of shrimp ira 1000000000 pounds worth so we also the food and drug administration the agency responsible for policing us ports if we can follow them while they test unsafe shipments. america has a jumbo appetite for shrimp you know it's a little piece of flesh that they can be easy it's kind of like popcorn of the sea americans it's an average of 4 pounds per person per year. at fred $62.00 days chef fred eric serves a lot of shrimp it's very difficult as a chef or a restaurant or to buy shrimp with the confidence that what you're serving them is going to be good ty cobb thrush which. americans taste comes with a price. 90 percent of only shrimp eaten in the u.s. is imported. much of it from countries like india thailand and
1:25 pm
indonesia sometimes trip is raised overseas using production drugs like antibiotics that are approved for use in those countries but not approved for use in the u.s. johns hopkins microbiologist david love surveyed federal data on drugs found in imported shrimp some of the top drugs that we found in shrimp were i'm sure if your aunt's chloramphenicol tetracycline itself on a meds and instructor meissen what does it mean for the consumer to be exposed to antibiotic resistant bacteria if you get an infection from these bacteria it can be hard to treat using antibiotics especially if these bacteria are resistant to the antibiotics that your doctor would prescribe. for bombs that use antibiotics often farm with overcrowded diseases are a big deal in term farming can be a high mortality rate in some farms.
1:26 pm
the food and drug administration polices shrimp imports. 5.5000000000 pounds you see things it is imported into the united states every year and much of it ends up in a cold storage facility like this one in southern california but only a tiny fraction of all of that seafood is actually inspected so we've come here today to find out exactly how the f.d.a. . emily morrison is a veteran f.d.a. inspector we've collected one subsample out of 50 random boxes and now in the process is bagging them. put them in coolers. and ship it to the land a computer just. red flags imports believed to pose the greatest risk based on
1:27 pm
country of origin and the company's past history of violations seafood by nature is a high risk commodity dunson lease has inspections at the ports of los angeles so there are many boxes here and there or pockets full what percentage of the song pool gets chosen to be taken to the lab so f.d.a. reviews all electronic transmissions and we utilize things like foreign inspection domestic inspection whether it was sampled in another all that information's gather within the predict application and then that shipment will be given a risk or the higher the risk or the more chances one of these officers will sample that much at. once the f.d.a. inspector picks some pills for inspection is sent to an f.d.a. lab like this one and find california.
1:28 pm
you may see a shrimp maybe i'm working. through i can't imagine because the shrimp powder is mixed with a chemical solvent dried and liquefied again run through an animal. is an f.d.a. chemist so kind the results are written from the tests what are they showing us in this post the compound working for sponsor programs and how dangerous is that for human beings virtual current is dangerous for human beings because it's cost some of the night. before now for for at this hour one building or one cause of this improvement to avoiding one ground so. good sized swimming. so how many parts per 1000000000 is this result i was is a one term building or so 2 grains and so in the olympic sized swimming pool we need my. to find it. that's incredible it's about batch of sram is not allowed in
1:29 pm
this country is actually going to be along this the f.d.a. simply isn't testing enough on the imported market to really find all of these violet of residues dr rangan had a study of imported for the june 2015 issue of the influential magazine consumer reports of the $205.00 imported farm samples that we found a leaven of those actually had illegal residues of antibiotics on them that comes out to about 5 percent of the imported farm shrimp samples being contaminated with an illegal antibiotic residue the fact that the f.d.a. only tests about point 7 percent of all the shrimp in this country for those antibiotic residues suggests that the agency is not actually testing enough shrimp to catch the amount of residue products that may be coming into the market however
1:30 pm
many of the countries that export the shrimp permit the use of antibiotics when you feed low levels of antibiotics every day you're not feeding them enough to necessarily kill bacteria those bacteria can become resistant to those antibiotics and that can make those antibiotics less effective in people if we're infected by those bacteria just as worrisome was the number of shrimp that tested positive for bacteria we found about a 3rd of the shrimp that we had had vibrio contamination vibrio is one of the few food borne illnesses on the rise 7 of the samples we found had mercy that's concerning too and that's probably primarily associated with the amount of processing that goes on the shrimp production both have the potential to cause illness through the cooking process they can be killed we do know that there are shrimp farms and shrimp production practices that are doing a lot more to address those issues that are addressing hygiene and address. other
1:31 pm
issues said that they aren't heavily reliant on drugs or other chemicals. 600 miles from the nearest ocean nestled in a patchwork of windmills and soybean and corn fields. indiana. a mom and pop indoor salt water shrimp form. their own there over and asked her why now welcome darty after travis county. carlina and daryl brown are accidental shrimp farming pioneers are you going down at 6 pounds with $32.00 dozen basic backyard pools is growing tanks they've perfected an indoor system with 0 waste no chemicals in the 90 percent survival rate. that's a 3rd higher than traditional outdoor shrimp farms well this is like a little laboratory here yes it is in the short form yes it is we do 9 tests every
1:32 pm
single day we do temperature dissolved oxygen night child c o 2 salinity alkalinity ph ammonia and flop as you can see our water is brown the test for doing here right now is we're trying to see how much bacteria is in our water and we call the settling so you're basically waiting for all this bacteria to go to the bottom and that tells you how much is in how much we have an exact like air for over a certain level then we have to get it out of the tanks otherwise it's going to start suffocating the strain that's very important that has to be done every day basically we're not even strip farmers anymore we ask ourselves guardians of water as long as the water does what it's supposed to be doing the script are just fine we add no antibiotics no hormones are ever added into our tanks you heard that right no antibiotics no hormones just fish food salt and baking so it's called a head root trophic by a flock system a process that revolver around bacteria no it looks very grown what is this round that i'm seeing the ground is the bacteria the bacteria. is why they excel their
1:33 pm
way so that they can survive without a major filter here's what's happening below the surface the shrimp eat their feed in excrete ammonia the bacteria turns that into talks ignite traits other bacteria turn that into benign i treat them as the waters are rated the nitrates turn into a harmless gas and around and around how long have you had this water for years and how does it compare to other short forms most of don't have water that law we by mistake actually kept our water it's like it's maturing it's like one yeah us and we just found out that the older it gets the better it gets and so too for the shrimp the growing process starts every month with about $250000.00 newborns called post larval zz nicknamed. now we're going to show you about our p.l.s. and when they come in they're the size of an eyelash so it's hard to see inside this water how many shrimp are actually in here we stock about 17000 each one of my
1:34 pm
6 tanks there so what are all these tubes coming down this year airlines and that adds the oxygen as their oxygen and keeps everything in suspense and as if this test settles i'll have 20 minutes and then 20 minutes i meant maybe then everything here seems so precise it has to be it's mother nature will it is mother nature but with a lot of help from a mother in indiana i noticed there's foam on top what is this foam foam is mostly c o 2 mixing with their feed that just comes to the top and it will actually disappear so it's part of the process as part of the process. yeah so yes i did get there. this is what you see in the supermarket when you get assurance that as i said they can't be frozen with a hat on their very translucent and one of the characteristically acts of us or mine see the lion's head is then south and they're happy. and they're. they start
1:35 pm
there fast if you can see here this is their only protect any man right now face. a very angry if there's a little horn then if you get them is that where it started. you can see it being. a month later they're promoted to the production team with a turn in to dinner. if you have to keep don't you would have. yes they. are you say in on the bed or the brown cell about $500.00 pounds directly to walk ins each month at $18.00 and whom do you think you think they. will sold their know how to 2 dozen start up forms in the u.s. as well as ones in switzerland and spain these companies are really innovators they're trying out new technology johns hopkins microbiologist david love studies
1:36 pm
true production gives the production like the browns a high grade with one caviar one that could ultimately make or break in the business world a lot of these farms might start out with a bang but then fizzle after a few years because they don't make money for the browns shrimp farming is paying off no financial fizzle only sizzle as the business continues to grow as it already is. but the proof of their success is what ends up on the plate and in this case innovation tastes pretty good when served with the profit motive so you would . know i still can't get over the fact that possibly the cleanest and arguably the best shrimp in the world may come from the middle of indiana so i guess i'm. in the table looks a little gross i get that but it's chemistry in there and everyone in results is.
1:37 pm
really good there's a global problem with using a lot of antibiotics in farming the more antibiotics used the more we're going to start seeing antibiotic resistant superbugs it happens in agribusiness here in the us it happens overseas and it even happens in medical practice you know a lot of people ask why should we care if there's some superbug that can infect shrimp how does it affect us but what they found is that bacteria can actually swap genes so potentially if the bacteria that infect shrimp becomes resistant it could swap the gene into a bacteria that infects us and so that resistance me passed on and the amounts of you know millions of pounds of antibiotics are being used around the world not just in trim but in cattle in poultry as well that is going to catch up to us when it hits our health care so yeah it's called a it's called a spillover event it's not infection it's an infection that happens in an animal species and then just like that a human can get infected too and it's been the source of most deadly diseases that
1:38 pm
medicine can't keep up with and that's where you look at the numbers could we have a 1000000000 pounds getting imported here only 2 percent actually gets inspected what about the other 90 percent it's important to have confidence in the system moving forward if we're going to keep eating shrimp and the inspection process missing brandon i mean the amount of shipping that came investors will actually made it into a lab is tiny care what you have coming up for us next you have really interesting story now imagine that you are one of the 1st pioneers to take a trip to mars but also imagine that you're not allowed to come home it's a one way trip which you guys do at. i met a woman who is already signed up and she's raring to go. for decades humanity has been fascinated with a manned expedition to mars. this is. the definition of pioneering. that doesn't scare here that's what makes it exciting
1:39 pm
robotic pioneers like mars curiosity rover have been crawling around the cratered landscape uncovering clues. about whether this distant planet can sustain life as we know it do you have the right stuff have the right stuff jamie del rosario is a 27 year old entrepreneur and c.e.o. of the international metal source a raw materials company that supplies metals to aerospace companies like space x. and lockheed martin she is one of 100 candidates that has been selected by mars one a private company that wants to colonize the red planet the catch there's no return flight home what do you say to people when they say jamie this is a suicide mission why are you doing it call it as i said mission but it's something that i chose i'm creating my own destiny for myself and and if it's a destiny that would help humanity. i'm all for it.
1:40 pm
according to mars $11.00 of the main goals of the project is to establish an interplanetary species to preserve the human race. i want to contribute directly to me in kind of scoffed at the expansion of the solar system which we have to look for point to stronger than the one she made it to the top 100 the 3rd round of a selection process mars one says started with 200000 online applicants ultimately $24.00 crew members will be chosen. do you think that anybody with enough training could be. common astronaut i believe that if you have. the motivation and it's temptation have of wanting to do it you can a mission to mars is obviously no simple matter pasadena california is home to the mars program at nasa's jet propulsion laboratory nasa has taken man to the moon and back but they've approached this journey with
1:41 pm
a much more deliberate and rigorous training program. i'm now on the base on mars and i will give you a little tour in 20156 volunteer scientists walked out of a dome on the side of a hawaiian volcano after being locked away by nasa for 8 months this was a simulated experiment of what life on mars would be like coexisting is one challenge getting there and surviving is an entirely different endeavor landing on mars is still pretty well sometimes it can be quite a terrifying play. dr richard zurich is the chief scientist for the mars program at nasa as jet propulsion laboratory a lot of things have to happen right right know we fly into the atmosphere we have would he choose the protection but we're also trying to slow down so that we can land softly. we're talking about
1:42 pm
a very different scale of endeavor we're landing a metric ton down on the planet today we think for human missions to get stuff down on the surface that they can use that they can be there for a long period of time that means 4050 metric tons that's a lot of material today we don't know how to land the mars one has come under critical fire for their project primarily due to funding issues and for reports of recording the mission for reality television show. in march 2015 c.e.o. basilan store took to you tube to respond. they are currently selling our documentary series to international brawls costs or there's no deal in place yet but it's looking very promising there's a lot of interest when we really fell you a good criticism about our mission because it helps us to improve our mission also tells techno quote there are less serious critics who are only interested to
1:43 pm
