about the so-called leaked point about the so—called leaked papers from wayne penny mordaunt was the equalities minister and there was a discussion about removing or de—medicalisation of some of the criteria which you have to currently undergo in order to have their identity. it is a discussion, it never happened, but it was a very tetchy exchange on the tv debate last night between penny mordaunt and kemi badenoch. a, last night between penny mordaunt and kemi badenoch.— last night between penny mordaunt and kemi badenoch. a quick look at the mirror front _ and kemi badenoch. a quick look at the mirror front page. _ and kemi badenoch. a quick look at the mirror front page. boris - and kemi badenoch. a quick look at the mirror front page. boris misses| the mirror front page. boris misses the mirror front page. boris misses the second cobra crisis meeting but will party today. matter he wasn't there? it will party today. matter he wasn't there? ., , , , ,, there? it does because he is still there? it does because he is still the prime _ there? it does because he is still the prime minister. _ there? it does because he is still the prime minister. you - there? it does because he is still the prime minister. you may - there? it does because he is still| the prime minister. you may only there? it does because he is still - the prime minister. you may only be a caretaker_ the prime minister. you may only be a caretaker but he is still the prime — a caretaker but he is still the prime minister. we are facing something of a crisis because of

associated with playing certain sports — and that includes the effects of concussion, which can be catastrophic in later life. yeah, it's not surprising. even the odd time that i've watched a bit of boxing or rugby, the number of hits to the head that people get... yeah. and it's not even just in contact sports — in something like cycling or snow sports, you can have an accident and sustain a head injury. yeah, but one of the sports which hasn't studied the effects of concussion as much as other sports is actually one of the most terrifying sports — certainly to watch — and that's canada's national winter sport, ice hockey. but the university of british columbia is undertaking a five—year study to take a look at the impact of concussion on the sport. marc cieslak has been finding out more. ice hockey is tough. it's fast. it's a sport where contact has become as much a part of the game as sticks, pucks and the cold. it's physical
and it's filled with ways for players to injure themselves. while awareness of concussion and impact trauma in sports has increased in the last few years and filled headlines, researchers continue to study the issues. but does technology really have a place to play in making sports like this one safer? it's a massive concern. so, in ice hockey, i think it's one of the most common injuries sustained by hockey players. i played 17 years professional hockey, and former hockey players that i know that have cognitive issues, whether it's early alzheimer's to headaches to still feeling nauseous. here at the university of british columbia, researchers are undertaking a study of concussion with help from the college's ice hockey team, the ubc thunderbirds.
dr alex rauscher heads up the team. his neck injury is unrelated to his work. concussion is the result of a hit to the head, but it could also be elsewhere on the body, that leads to accelerations of the brain inside the skull, and that means that the brain, you know, hits the skull from the inside and that can cause injury. i want to try to understand the accumulation of those repetitive impacts that hockey players sustain and how it affects long—term brain health. the team at ubc are making use of a variety of different technologies, such as smart mouthguards, which are fitted with sensors. a real novelty of a mouthguard is that it's got a really good mechanical coupling with the skull, so you can get a good representation of what impacts the players sustain, how hard they get hit, what direction the impact�*s occurring. while wearable sensors provide information about the number of times a player is hit and the amount of force that's
exerted on them during an impact, there is debate amongst some experts that more attention needs to be focused on prevention of impacts in the first place. in rugby specifically, there have been changes to the laws of the game. in particular, the event that causes concussions is the tackle. sanctions have been put in place to try and reduce the occurrence of these high tackles. our understanding of the dangers of contact in sport continues to grow. rule changes occur and training improves, but work continues to make sports safer. marc there. now, more and more tech is being used in sport — some of it for the players, but also, some of it for the fans, to help enhance their experience. yeah, and one of those fans — one of the biggest fans we know — is paul carter. so, when he heard that the orange velodrome in marseille was experimenting with some of those ideas, well, he was there.
i visited on the eve of their final game of the 2021—22 season — a must—win a game against strasbourg that would determine their qualification for europe's top competition once again. on big match days like this, access to these parts of the stadium are usually only reserved for a select few people. but here, they're using technology to try and bring supporters and players that little bit closer together. a range of technologies have been introduced into the stadium in a bid to enhance watching a game. we have a fully dedicated wireless infrastructure inside the stadium, because you have 67,000 people who want to share every emotion at the stadium, so we deploy infrastructures to complete our 56 network. you can have an app
on your smartphone, you can click and collect your food and beverage, so you can order on your seat, you have the replays and you five angles with some cameras, and you can move back and forward and see all of the action. i was keen to try out another piece of kit that's been deployed here. it's called la vitre, and it's a human—sized digital window enabling conversations to take place remotely. la vitre is a simple way to teleport the right people to the right place. so, it can be used, like here, for access to the tunnel for events. the screen also has a built—in capability to live translate conversations on the fly. participants also have the ability to draw on the screen, as well as share content with each other in real time. marseille have installed la vitre's screens in its players' tunnel, giving fans with access to one of its vip lounges a virtual window into
a normally off—limits area. premier league club manchester city have introduced vip tunnel access, but behind physical glass. this is the first—of—its—kind virtual tunnel access. after the game, i spoke with marseille's brazilian defender luan peres. thank you forjoining us. thank you for stopping to speak to me. what a night! how do you feel? speaks portuguese now, unfortunately, though he could see my questions translated into portuguese, someone at the other end pressed the wrong button and his answers were translated into french on my screen. but you can definitely see the potential for tools like this, particularly for the media to be able to carry out interviews at an emotional time in a language everyone is most comfortable in. tech is already changing football both on and off the field,
but time will tell how much of an appetite among regular supporters there is for these kinds of interactions. now, a few years ago, we went and visited a company called oneplus — a chinese outfit which makes phones with specs that rival the most popular brands here in the west. the man who founded oneplus is called carl pei, and he now has a new venture, which is called... nothing. it's called nothing and it makes nothing. the nothing ear and now, the nothing phone. and zoe kleinman has interviewed carl to talk about... nothing. this is the nothing phone. i'm gonna start by showing you the thing that makes it different and the thing that everybody�*s talking about because that is the back. you look at it here, you can see it's kind of translucent on the back here and there are hundreds of little led lights forming these distinct patterns here. and the idea is that they double up as notifications. phone beeps tune
while we're talking about the actual physical phone, it's worth saying that this device is on the chunky side. let me show you what i mean. got a little pile here of phones — various makes — and let me put the nothing one on the top. you can see how much thicker it is compared with the others. now, what's the biggest thing inside a phone these days? it is, of course, the battery. nothing says that the battery on this phone now, i've been using this phone forfour days and i've only charged it once so far. phone beeps quickly but given the current economic climate, is a translucent back and some funky lights enough to persuade people to part with their money? # hey! the challenges for nothing are immense. they have so many different things — set to one side launching a mobile phone into a market which is totally dominated by two giants, apple and samsung, who have almost unlimited resources in marketing
and channel and reach and brand — you've also got the really tough economic headwinds right now. the nothing phone was designed by carl pei, who co—founded the phone brand oneplus. his new firm is based in the uk. you've managed to create quite a buzz, haven't you, around the product? yeah, i was tweeting this weekend that there's too much. too much? you've created too much of a buzz? oh, we just didn't expect it. we knew people would pay attention because the entire industry has been kind of stagnant, so us bringing something different to the market, a lot of people would want to know what it is. but the amount of interest has just blown our minds. alarm tone beeps why did you call it nothing? well, there's an official answer and a non—official answer. the official answer is, you know, as technology becomes more and more seamless and intertwined and ingrained in our lives, itjust fades into the background, it's so easy to use, it feels like nothing. but the truth is i had a lot of other names and i was discussing
with my little sister about all of these different names i had and she told me that they were all really bad. so, eventually, isaid, "ok, i'm just gonna call it �*nothing'." and she's like, "yeah, yeah! do that! "that's really good!" chuckles do you think that you can energise the market in the way that you want to? i think, based on all the anticipation and all the excitement that's out there right now, we're well on our way to do that but, ultimately, the real test is the product itself. and that's it for the shortcut of click for this week. the full—length version is waiting for you right now on iplayer. and we'll be back next week. thanks for watching! see you soon.
you've probably heard a national emergency has been declared with this unprecedented heatwave. likely to smash the all—time uk temperature record but this will bring impacts to people's health and to infrastructure over the next few days. the heat is going to be dangerous. for the next few hours we have a few showers drifting northwards, loitering across northern scotland. look at these temperatures. the end of the night, sunday morning, this is as low as temperatures go, as cool as the air gets. take advantage of sunday morning, get outside, open the doors, open the curtains, open your windows, let the cool air into your house or flat, and within the first hour of the day, shut everything — shut your windows, your curtains, your doors, shut this heat out of your house because it is going to be a very hot day. temperature widely pushing into the 30s across england and wales, and what follows for monday and tuesday is dangerous heat, with temperatures potentially hitting [io—odd degrees.
