12:32 am
ditching the cell parts. and we're digging into the issue from international politics to the global pandemic. and everything in between join me as i take on the lars, dismantle the misconceptions and debate the contradictions upfront with me. mark lamond hill on out 0. lou with ah, one of the top stories here under 0, south africa's president has criticized border closures following the discovery of a new strain of the groan of ours. cyril rem opposes as there's been a rise in cases since on the crone was identified. cases have now been found in
12:33 am
more than 10 countries, and a number have added travel restrictions from 20 to g, empty, all foreigners. a bard mentoring israel for 2 weeks in french interior minister says his country won't be held hostage by the you case, domestic politics when it comes to migration 27 people died, trying to cross the english channel last week. she don says, 6 of its soldiers had been killed during an attack by ethiopian forces. it happened at an army post near a contested border area in get a re state. the military says its forces repelled the offensive and inflicted heavy losses on the arm group. if he appears army chief, denied his soldiers had any involvement in the attack. as well said r has more from caught in. the sudanese side here says i did the the queue opium forces and some of the militia groups that are loyal to the central government in utopia have attacked. the sudanese forces that they have killed seeks through
12:34 am
by means, soldiers and the in the statement or this will then his army. they said that the attackers be this route today, took their force, then militias aimed at intimidating dur farmers sub page and the harvest season. and also incursions into this with our knees lamb. this region alpha region is a very photo region in the, in between the through done and you q up here and that region, this border have all this dispute as soon as the colonial areas between the 2 countries and have witnessed some little conflict, the lost conflict was lost yet in 2020 you started in november and last months and months, but at the end of the process it to appear through then have agreed to keep the state or grand best if you could have been interrupted by the collections that happened yesterday. however, the put, the export says that both companies will lease states will refrain from escalating
12:35 am
the passion as both or having the internal crisis if he appears intensifying internal conflict to his spectre northeastern region of afar. it's important as a key route for most of the countries in ports from the port of djibouti out here as the 1st international news channel to gain access to the region. since the fighting began mom, it to her to cool reports from the town of schieffer. and the medina that i am now standing in the heart of schiffer city, has it has been debbie center of military operations during the past. 40 days up there in your mind. i. hi denny. hi. this is the situation. how much you'd better take shelter. it looks dangerous. okay, i'm gonna hi ton. this is the situation we have been seeing since we entered the
12:36 am
city jersey. it was one of the 1st to arrive. we were the 1st team of journalists to enter the city. this is a mountainous area and what we heard was gun fired exchange. the scenes we witness are very appalling. that bodies everywhere on the street. it is a living proof of the ferocious ness of the fighting that are clear signs of the lack of humanity in this conflict that the grand forces were driven out of the strategic area by militia from the far region. the cities, commercial shops were totally destroyed, even the mosques were not spared. we have been hearing gunfire from all directions over the bus for hours. all the residents have fled for their lives and the city has turned into military barracks for their 40 fighters. those militia are supporters of the fuel, be an army. they have seized the c, b, and the van sink towards body and come bowl champ, the international community you will need to step in as the humanitarian situation here is really dire. as a result of the fighting, the dead should be buried that the earliest in this small city, like you can imagine how the situation would be when the fighting goes to larger
12:37 am
cities within them. how to provence, australia is introducing a new nor to target people who post abusive messages on social media will allow the government to access the personal information of uses if they post defamatory comments from it to scott morrison's as it will make platforms such as twitter and facebook handover data or i'm sure, and if a son is a professor, the usually department of information studies, he studies the relationship between technology, politics and society. jones is not from northern california. thanks very much for being with us. so it's got more and said at the online well, should not be a wild west where boats and bigots and trolls and others are not mostly going around and can home people. and do you think this is a reasonable way to rein them in? i don't think it's likely to be successful and i don't think it, i think it takes away from the actual spirit of the internet's where, you know, the power of the internet as we all know is it's potential for all of us. regardless of who are where we are to express ourselves. so any sort of regulation
12:38 am
involving the abuses of technology companies, of which there are many, no doubt. i should not be a law that would violate not only issues, a free speech, but increase government surveillance because that actually is unlikely to, to have any positive effect on both the trust citizens have and being able to express themselves online. and really the principles of democracy itself, and much more importantly, in my minds, or maybe equally importantly, it's not going to, it's not going to actually rain in the actual problem with social media companies themselves. so what do you think does need to be done because there are harms associated with some of the present behavior online and, and most government say they want to do something about it all. most citizen would probably want to see something done about it. absolutely. across the board, i think people are unsatisfied with the, with the status quo. but i think the question really is, is why do we see what we see online, right?
12:39 am
so why is it, why does it seem to all of us so often that what we see is content that is defamatory, that is harassing that bullying and a time is very conspiracy theory oriented. and that's because the visibility of what we see online is intimately related to the biology, meaning the ability for content to spread. so why, what, why am i saying? although the reason i'm saying this is because algorithms oh pick, co, corporate proprietary algorithms are selecting content based on predictions of what content will arouse or outrage or get our attention. and i think one thing we all know is that we are attacked. we're certainly going to pay attention. it plays to our nervous system. so the instrument that needs to actually be intervened work is the algorithm that makes computational decisions around what we see right now. so i can drop the problem that is that the,
12:40 am
the company's notoriously protective of algorithms and they make a furious amount of money precisely negativity, that you're talking about. so unless someone takes them to, to account and says what you have to change algorithms. being able to send that with the same thing. continuing with me, i totally agree that the algorithms that various companies create are their own proprietary content and they should be monetized and rewarded for such. however, when those algorithms are extremely damaging to the public interest, and we've seen here in the united states, how those algorithms directly have led to things like the january 60 insurrection. we're seeing issues with the to gray and region right now in the area. this just keeps happening all around the world, then the algorithms need to be arranged in that does not mean that we need to know the software code behind the algorithms. it means that those algorithms, in terms of questions of audit and oversight, must not privilege content that is likely to outrage, divide and polarize our societies in our world. challenge my so who to jones,
12:41 am
my friend, you does, who puts in place that, that, that auditing. i very much believe that that is an area for government regulatory action. however, that's very different than the australian law, which basically discloses private identities that people are posting online. and by the way, with, if we were to follow, you know, sort of the logic of this australian law. the damage damage would be done by the time people would be reported, right? content would already have gone viral online and people who are more horrible, honorable would already be hurt. so i don't think that the ultimate issue is that i think the state needs to recognize that our technology, companies that are private companies that are monetizing our public wide, you know, building on the internet by the way that we all paid for that started at my university, you c, l a. they need to be also beholden to the public interest and the way we can do that is by challenging them 1st say, hey, let's do some experimentation. can you guys still maintain your evaluation or
12:42 am
profitability without privilege and content? that again, is going to play to our worst, you know, aspects of our doping mean, you know, dopamine releasing fight or flight nervous system running and technology. i'm sorry to interrupt you after we have to leave it. that is a good discussion. thank you very much. remish. sure, thank you. as well. yes, government is investigating an unknown illness that's affected debt, more than 200 of its officials working abroad. diplomats intelligence officials and high ranking military offices of all suffered unexplained brain trauma. before some of them to give up their jobs wasn't jordan spoke to one of the earliest victims of what's become known as havana syndrome. cia officer mark paula morales went to moscow in 2017 for meetings with russian intelligence officials. paula morales never thought he'd come back to the us with a career ending traumatic brain injury. it's been 4 years of a 247 headache,
12:43 am
which is, you know, not only of painful physically, but just in from a mental health perspective. it's pretty, it's pretty debilitating. so while i've gotten better now, because the treatment i received at walter reeves, national, intrepid center of excellence, that's one of the world's leading traumatic brain injury programs. i'm still not there yet. i'm still suffering. paula marolla says he woke up in his hotel room, dizzy ears ringing, and suffering. a never ending migraine, a year earlier. diplomats at the u. s. embassy, and havana reported similar symptoms. at 1st, the u. s. government considered the cases anomalies. but 5 years later, at least 200 u. s. government officials and some of their relatives are struggling to recover from unexplained health incidence. also known as havana syndrome. the by didn't ministration says these cases have spurred it to find the cause. when you sit down with, with our people in here, ah, what's happened to them?
12:44 am
how they've been affected? ah, it's very, very power. and it only reinforces in me the absolute conviction that we need to do everything possible for our people to care for them. to protect them, to get to the bottom of what have the assumption the officials are being attacked with weapons that use lasers or microwaves instead of bullets. similar to what's being demonstrated here. the injuries have turned up in vienna in bogota, in guam, joe, and in hanoi, just before vice president comalla harris's visit in august. some speculate russia is behind the attacks, a charge the kremlin denies. still, cia director bill burns recently warned moscow there would be pay back if true, the trumpet, ministration, also blame to cuba expelling some of their diplomats in 2017,
12:45 am
mark paul morales and his lawyer. believe the government should tell the public all it knows. we don't know what the intelligence community knows truly about these incidents and if revealing certain information, when caused our country greater problems. but i like to think that hopefully we are the victim and solely the victim in the situation. and that we have something that we can do in response, doctors say the cases resembled the traumatic brain injuries us forces suffered in i. e. d attacks during the iraq war. congress recently passed the havana act to make sure the injured get the care they need. but it doesn't address the growing unease, some feel about serving abroad. mark. paula morales says the cia has stood by him in the past 4 years, but he wants the us to send a message. these attacks won't be tolerated if it is an act of war. and so we're
12:46 am
gonna respond appropriately. so i don't think this is just simple sanctions. certainly you don't want to start when we're 3 over this, but there's going to be have to be some really tough measures taken against her adversary. you know, if it's russia and it is, this is, this is serious business now. a call to action to protect those who thought they knew the risks that came with their jobs. rosalyn, jordan, l g 0, washington, france as minister for overseas territories is visiting what loop itself to days of writing and protests against new code. 19 restrictions, including a vaccine pass. hundreds of health workers again rallied against plans for compulsory inoculation as active from imposing rules on the overseas territory from thousands of kilometers away. doctors in democratic republic of congo reporting a high rate of birth defects in baby is born nic, cobalt mines. cobalt is used in batteries for phones, laptops and electric vehicles and demand for it worldwide is soaring. there are
