12:31 pm
a look at what's coming up. all bad see women take at the helm for the volvo ocean race. on the road truck art is in high country mobile installation in spain. and cheers some useful tips from the world's number one beer somebody. we start off the show with one of the toughest sailing we're got as in the world the u. valvo ocean right now since nine hundred seventy three the most experienced sailors have taken to the high seas for a true test of endurance this year the race will take the teams forty five thousand and not all miles around the world across four oceans on the most notable aspect of this edition is that when men are taking a leading role now we talk to some of the female crew members ahead of the start.
12:32 pm
racing across the sea at breakneck speeds. even in training the volvo ocean race is teams take things to the limit. among the sailors battling to shave off seconds in heavy seas is british skipper deacon fahri. be out here tonight. very privileged place to be seeing nature in its own environment and then trying to harness the power of nature to make it work for you i like the lack of distractions and the focus there is on actually saving the boat. so far it was the first woman to sail solo and nonstop around the world in both directions and she's not the only female participant in this year's race eighteen women will be taking part thanks to the introduction of
12:33 pm
a new rule the more women on board the bigger the size of the team allowed. the idea is to open more doors to women at the sport's highest level. the level of the female side has not been allowed to get to the top level because they've not been able to so with the best teams. not for our side help the sport help the best female sailors go to the very top. all seven teams taking part in the volvo ocean race have decided to include women so this year there will be mixed crews fighting to win what is billed as the toughest sailing race in the world. some of the guys who have never sowed with women before i realizing that it. can be a very nice environment to silane i think a mix tape brings out the best of the girls it makes them raise their game and it kind of calms the testosterone of the boys a little so ends up. in
12:34 pm
a very nice environment the subtlety that women maybe have because they have less strength they have a little bit more subtlety and more finesse in a way is sometimes an advantage for women. most of the women participating in mixed teams this year sailed in the last of all the ocean race but the all female team had the odds stacked against them. and the sport of sailing and the volvo ocean race in particular is an experience sport the more hours you sail the more hours you spend on the ocean the better you will become as a sailor only. at first the big names in men sailing were reluctant to take female crew members on board they were all waiting to see how the women performed in the preliminary import race and the countess before the crew is put to sea proper next sunday. afterwards the male sailors congratulated their female counterparts. over the barrier that they have referred
12:35 pm
to the spirit is from you know that let me call them out we are very happy that they are going to look at it our thoughts on some girls have got a lot of experience and you know a really good days and i don't really go to the jewels and. you know we fill up with we've done pretty lucky with the girls we've got. this year everything's changed at the ball the ocean race for both the women and the men. for. their team work improves with every hour that they sail together. as soon as we step on the boat or when we are together as a team there are no differences and we are one group of sailors and we just want to say it make the boat go really fast so we have the same goal to dig a trophy and to do that. in yeah i want to do. when and
12:36 pm
so i'm hoping that now this is kind of been a watershed moment if this race can show you that makes teams work and in the future say to us we'll get picked on ability not just gender. right now the crews have some forty five thousand exciting but grueling nautical miles ahead of them whichever boat crosses the line first one thing's already decided for the first time women will be among the winners of the volvo ocean race. the voyage manuscript as one of the most mysterious books in the world now it's around six hundred years old and consists of two hundred pages written in secret code and even to this day no one has been able to get to the bottom of what is written on the pages but one man in spain has made it his mission to finally solve this age old riddle. thank you.
12:37 pm
dive into the past with a book that's one of the world's greatest unsolved mysteries. for more than two years one course a garcia from book us in northern spain has been studying the voyage manuscript thought to have been written some six hundred years ago its author is unknown and the writing remains undecided furred the images sparked the imagination but no one's sure what they mean is that the coming down here of theories that the book might have been written in a kind of encoded latin. or that an alien road while being held captive in a monastery. or that leonardo da vinci wrote it as a child i just you know there are a lot of people in the world who are currently studying the voynich manuscript. in this the moment. scientists have determined that the manuscript dates from the fifteenth century that's a period of time that has always especially fascinated one plus acre c.-a he's
12:38 pm
always searching for rare historic books as was the book dealer with trade voyage who discovered the manuscript in one thousand nine hundred twelve in the library of a jesuit order in italy he was able to buy it but not to decipher it. and i thought that it was made of this great in many books written in the middle ages or the early renaissance there's the author's fear of running afoul of the authorities and that's why the focus of a partially written in a secret code. that's why some people suspect that the voyage manuscript says must be as well they don't leave this at the same time it exhibits so many peculiarities that don't confirm that theory as the. historical books are the specialty of the small spanish. publishing company ceiling for two years some twenty specialists have been working on
12:39 pm
a facsimile edition of the voyage manuscript the original is owned by yale university in the united states one jose garcia who is a full knowledge assist hopes his copy will be as authentic as possible some of the holes were repaired with thread and caught on thread and some of the holes were repaired with parchment thread this is very difficult to reproduce but there repairs some of them have lost the thread and the small of the small holes are made in the same place as the book. these are plants that never existed in nature painted on the finest parchment old handiwork like this is a real treasure. the publishing house wants to sell the facsimile edition for some eight thousand euros a piece the print run is limited to eight hundred ninety eight and three hundred
12:40 pm
orders have already been placed. there it's possibly a treatise about a medicine pharmacy or maybe about chemistry. it is about astrology and astronomy. when you touch the original and awaken so many emotions and questions you want to know who touched it who could have made something like this how many people were involved in many. of the things but the author of the manuscript appears to have taken the answers to those questions to his grave with them possibly along with knowledge about the healing powers of plants or the synergy of the stars unless of course someone manages to crack the books code. i think that with this facsimile which is very close to their original. we can make a contribution towards this manuscript perhaps one day being fully and printed them
12:41 pm
and. perhaps there are the secrets of the past page hidden in these pages wherever they may have come from one plus a garcia aims to have the facsimiles finished in november when he will present them to the public for the first time and that might just be the beginning of a new chapter in the story of the voyage manuscript thanks. our next report takes us to the italian island of sicily now cicely's capital city palermo not only has great weather all year round but also boasts a wealth of culture cullen area delights and exciting history so as the saying goes the early bird catches the worm so we start our voyage of discovery at the crack of dawn. that picturesque capital of sicily alam

12:46 pm
fall in love with the sea and with the land there's such a rich and profound history. it's just great. grandiose of. which views one thing and then i was sure to in chance many movies it is. there was a clear distinction between art we see on the streets and the works in museums but more and more we are seeing a crossover between the two mediums and what this means is that street artists are displaying in galleries and museums and now in spain a group of contemporary artists have taken to the streets so to speak for the first time for the so called truck art project now i traveled to madrid recently to see what this involves. at first glance this may look like an abstract painting on a wall but look again and it's actually a work of art on the side of
12:47 pm
a truck. this is a truck art project an initiative in madrid twenty nine of spain's most established artists have taken part. as one of them. in a piece that i believe me and it's a painting in movement on this i feel you. know if this project was a challenge but in a positive sense to be done with paintings normally hang on walls and not between cars that are zipping by and that it really is. my client's paintings usually hang in galleries and museums including the well known rent us afia in the spanish capital but he stepped out of his normal element to participate in this project. might end of august also took part she's been active as
12:48 pm
a professional artist for fifteen years her works often involve graphic allegory. the chalk on project is now an important part of my work. and i would love to put the symbol of the sacred hot and senses symbolises important in my own eyes and i decided to put it on the truck. about the artist for the truck art project were chosen by the curators. when they come to me the first wanted to do on a street and i came up with a ring you know on in their brain there's. different art these are not normally used to show in their art. in the streets and normally there are only these painting me to. endure. annabel rica is also one such artist her words are often quite colorful and playful aside from painting
12:49 pm
a truck she was also commissioned to paint a mural on the transport company's grounds. and. an infant that it was a big challenge to adapt to the. modern in such a short period of time. but it was amazing to take part in this project. you know. it was something new for me because i'm used to working in closed rooms with viewable formats. the trucker project is the brainchild of entrepreneur high mccall so he started this transport company five years ago but his true passion is art which is displayed on the walls both inside and outside of
12:50 pm
the company. funded the truck our project with money from his transport firm. it is important that companies these days use part of their profit to return to the to the society and i think that they do say. social responsibility or corporate responsibility and and we are promoting our time letting and some people enjoy. the trucks operate all over spain so the public at large have a chance it's funny meme. on the road or in town. or no their numbers are limited but cole says looking to expand the project to one hundred trucks or more in early
12:51 pm
next year there will also be an event for all the trucks can be seen together in one big road show. now right well moving on now to a subject dear to many germans beer cording to the statistics every german drinks more than one hundred liters of beer on average per year making it the national drink simply by default but it has come a long way as a beverage thanks to the craft beer wave there are for example special varieties which like wine go perfectly with oysters or even chocolate we met someone who knows the beverage so well that he was named world champion beer somalia. i'm going to be at an all out the first of the up there is very fruity it has a stable head. it's no longer same kind of resinous undertone go like you were
12:52 pm
walking through a pine forest and the fun. stuff and his punt isn't just something you cough and. he's a. one of the world's best in fact having won the b.s. championships in september. i think if you asked my friends they'd say well he certainly can't talk and maybe it's because in the end i was fairly common stage and because of that i just got into a flow of talking and i was able to describe the behavior in a competent way i think that helped give my entire presentation of the appearance that everything was working well. and also. the practice of giving professional advice about beer is still in its infancy stephanie works as a computer scientist he says something here in his spare time tasting his own home brewing co says the image of beer as a cheap mass produced concoction is gradually changing. but. that's part of my job
12:53 pm
as a beer summit to help ensure that beer is looked at as a somewhat higher quality product and is something consumed for pleasure not just to get drunk or i think working towards that is the joint task of all beer summit heads and especially meet world champion. by. stephan began developing an interest in beer beyond the classic pearce coast several years ago he started playing himself and in twenty fifteen he took a two week course to qualify as is so many. stephens area of expertise today is food pairing finding out which big goes with which food. for instance this pumpkin soup goes well with the session pale and the whole thing going to bring in a very fruity roma tropical fruit the pumpkin soup has
12:54 pm
a slight note of orange in the water and those citrus notes are also present in the beer there's also ginger and vanilla ice which works well with a multinational a beer so the beer goes very well with the pumpkin soup and it's an excellent company but for another guy who does look. for an entire menu the same rule applies as with wine if possible the first be it should be the lightest and fizzy is the last one should be the sweetest. thing if you're a young man and here's a scottish dark a r. and b. or that's really given life by a dark roast and i don't know what the flavor goes very much in the direction of the chocolate or even a bit of coffee like in the sort of go well it will warm chocolate cake but of course also tastes quite intensely of chocolate when i goes very well with a pair that picks up the last chocolate milk. and other tips from stefan to get the best flavor from beer drink it out of
12:55 pm
a glass rather than straight from the bus so what beer does he like drinking best. question and i have a different favorite siphoning off season or occasion and i'm summer i prefer something light like a wheat beer a belgian if it beer or an approach. in winter maybe something heavier like a cascade beer or something belgian. stefan handguns can enjoy his title as world champion b. is something yet for two years and during that time he hopes to inspire as many people as possible to explore the variety the world of beer has to offer. and with that we wrap up the week now don't forget to go to our website case you missed one of the reports or friend us on facebook for me and the rest of the crew here in berlin. as always thanks for watching and we will see you again soon.
