on factories' growth. the daily mail looks at comments made by uk secretary for education damian hinds who said that parents should put their smartphones down and take every opportunity to talk to their children face to face in order to improve social and literary skills. and finally, a new star has been born in the world of professional tennis. 15—year—old us player cori gauff delivered one of the most stunning shocks ever seen at wimbledon after beating venus williams in straight sets to reach the second round of the prestigious championship. she is 330 some ring in — make

something. —— something. she is on the front pages as well. everybody has this story. absolutely shocking. it has ratcheted up. scenes where they stormed parliament. quite extreme that you wouldn't expect from somewhere like hong kong, given the last 20 years where there has been continuous protests. this seems to have taken it to a new level. there is a real uneasy feeling on the streets of hong kong. we are hearing from our correspondence and
5:47 am
other people who are there. the worry is how the activists will take this forward. there is a polarisation of opinion in hong kong as to whether this was the right thing to do. yeah, there is a view on one hand that carrying on with peaceful protest that you so far and of course the activists who stormed would argue that it didn't get them far enough so they have taken this action. we have talked —— heard carrie lam talk about the rule of law which sounds —— authoritarian. carrie lam has said the legislation will be allowed to expire this time next year. that could be a long 12 months in hong kong's history. and we don't know what the outlook is for those activists who stormed the legislative council in terms of if
5:48 am
they are arrested and what what —— what might happen to them. this confirms the fact that iran has surpassed the stockpile of low enriched uranium allowed under the 2015 nuclear pact. this article says iran is looking to european countries to salvage this pact. if it is possible to salvage it. it is salvageable perhaps. almost like the moderate countries in this debate. it is putting the threat out there so we are it is putting the threat out there so we are familiar with this statistic, about 3.67% of the arrangement of uranium — make enrichment. —— enrichment. this is used for energy creation. it feels like one of these many intractable problems we have in world politics at the moment. there is a huge
5:49 am
stand—off between iran and the us in this case. where will it end? it doesn't feel like it will end in the next week or so. the uranian foreign minister is saying they will take it further than what they have already. -- iranian further than what they have already. —— iranian to stop it put european countries in a difficult position. when the us pulled out, they said no, we are staying in this, we want to continue with this. and the harder line the us has taken on this issue. it is almost forcing european countries to effectively side with the us over this. they want a more neutral stance. they think more nuanced. the business section of the daily telegraph. factory crisis threatens jobs. it cites the us china trade war. the eurozone's industrial slump and of course, how manufacturers are starting to get themselves ready for the uk leaving
5:50 am
themselves ready for the uk leaving the eu. it is one of these confidence surveys. it has dropped below the 50 level. 50 and above largely means something quite positive. it feels like a perfect storm. the geopolitics is one. the more important backdrop is where is the world economy? eurozone is a lwa ys the world economy? eurozone is always at the end of the cycle after the us, uk and asia. that is where europe is. the other thing to remember about europe if you have one large dominant economy in germany. very manufacturing lead and smaller countries on the periphery. it is part of where we are in the uk at the moment. we can't rely as much on the eurozone as we used to and we can't expect continuous growth. we talk about climate change. any —— continuous growth is not good for
5:51 am
the climate change situation. how concerned are you for the uk economy at the moment? we have been in this place for a long, long time and the uk economy is actually doing 0k. place for a long, long time and the uk economy is actually doing oki am not as negative because i was involved in a conference yesterday about the growth of small businesses in the uk which is incredibly vibrant at the moment and that is wherejob vibrant at the moment and that is where job creation vibrant at the moment and that is wherejob creation comes vibrant at the moment and that is where job creation comes from. the 1-10 where job creation comes from. the 1—10 companies, businesses, the headline industries employ a lot of people individually but the vast wealth of employment in this country is in small business and that sector through a lot of government initiatives, tax breaks and a lot of money flowing into the uk, is really strong at the moment. that is encouraging. 0n the programme i present later on bbc news where we interview entrepreneurs every day, i
5:52 am
am always amazed at how exciting they are. innovative and how they see opportunities in every situation which is great. the education secretary damon hines has held that mac is telling parents to put the phone down and talk to your kids. what do you think? i wouldn't have thought of that. there is always the danger of being lectured by a government minister as to how to bring up ourown government minister as to how to bring up our own children. mr hines does his best to put his phone down, it doesn't always succeed but there is the more important issue about literacy and social skills and you do see it, too many children in the round may be spend a lot of time on their phone, looking at the phone, not talking to each other, not talking to adults. so there is an impact. it is an interesting scenario. we are in a massive social experiment at the moment and we don't know what the outcome is going to be. when you go to places and you see whole families as they are all looking at their devices, it is interesting. i am
5:53 am
looking at their devices, it is interesting. iam hands looking at their devices, it is interesting. i am hands up. looking at their devices, it is interesting. iam hands up. my looking at their devices, it is interesting. i am hands up. my kids have devices and they look at them but we have a no devices rule at the dinner table. if you see even at a fast food restaurant and you see families all on their phone and they are far away from each other. not talking to each other. maybe they are, maybe they are texting each other! who knows. it is an intriguing situation. a star is born asa intriguing situation. a star is born as a 15—year—old brings venus down—to—earth. a stunning shock. incredible. when venus williams first one wimbledon, she wasn't even born. this is what we love about sport. 0ne generation going out and a new coming in. anybody watching the game yesterday, the maturity of somebody at 15 to play like that, it is extraordinary. hats off. hopefully she can progress a little
5:54 am
bit further but she has already done extraordinarily well for herself. a 15—year—old! there is a so many things you can't do as a 15—year—old. things you can't do as a 15-year-old. absolutely. we have to keep an eye on her. that is for sure. we have more comments from our viewers about the football. craig parkins says the lionesses have done great but the us are the best in the world and this tournament. he thinks it isa world and this tournament. he thinks it is a 3—1 finish for the usa but he thinks why is the media not chanting football is coming home like the football lack —— like the men's game last year! we will when they get to the final. thanks for watching and thank you for your comments. we will talk to you soon.
5:55 am
hello again, we are in the middle of quite a quiet spell of weather, really. looking at the week ahead it will be dry. there would be a few subtle changes, mind you. the satellite picture is quite interesting where cooler atlantic air is meeting the extreme heatwave. we have these massive thunderstorms that have developed. there is a risk of damaging winds, flash flooding, even large hail, but we also have some thicker cloud working into scotland and northern ireland at the moment and that will continue to provide the focus of a few showers in northern scotland over the next few hours. but otherwise, if you're heading outside in the next hour or two, it is most likely to be dry and not too cold, temperatures between 9—12 degrees. now take a look at tuesday's weather picture, we will have those showers continue across northern scotland, not as many as we had on monday, so more of us will have dry weather. quite cloudy for most of us in north—western scotland and northern ireland. there will be some sunshine in eastern scotland and england and wales. a day similar to monday in that there should be some lengthy spells of sunshine around, staying dry.
5:56 am
temperatures in the high teens to low 20s, the exceptions are the northern isles where temperatures are still a little on the cool side. it's another dry day at wimbledon and again there should be some spells of sunshine coming and going through the day, really. in the middle part of the week, our area of high pressure is still firmly in charge of our weather and that means more in the way of dry weather. there could be a few showers just sneaking in across the extreme north of scotland where also there will be a fair bit of cloud. but the further south, the more broken cloud there is and the more sunshine there will be. so should be fine for most parts of northern ireland. temperatures similar, really, 18—22, still a little cool up north with just 12. there will be some changes as we head into thursday. 0ur area of high pressure slips a little bit further west, that allows some rain to come into scotland. whereas scotland gets wet, for england and wales it gets a bit warmer with the winds coming a little further southwards around this high pressure and then across england and wales, boosting the temperatures here.
5:57 am
now the rain in scotland is likely to be notjust heavy, but also pretty persistent, lasting for most of the day with those totals relly building up in the highlands. could potentially get a bit of rain in northern ireland, that's a bit of an uncertainty there, but england and wales stays dry. and it gets warmer, 25 celsius on thursday in london, turning a tad more humid. similar conditions on friday, we see a lot of fine weather as we head into the weekend with further spells of sunshine. that's your weather.
