reporting from ukraine china is renowned for its historic great wall building started on the mammoth fortification back in the third century b.c. to protect china from invaders all these days trying to also has another wall known as the great fire wall of china it's supposed to protect chinese citizens from undesired foreign influences and first set up in two thousand the great fire wall blocks access to certain websites and terms that the chinese government deems dangerous any with of criticism of the government or terms that refer for example to the student massacre. square in one thousand nine hundred nine oh that's for hit in the past the tech giant google has spoken out against such internet censorship in fact that is why it pulled out of china back in two thousand and ten at the time google's co-founder said this will take a look at that our objection is to those forces of totalitarianism our hope is
10:14 pm
there is progress and then more open internet in china. hasn't happened times have changed and years later google reportedly secretly planning its return to china a new report from the investigative web site the intercept says that the tech giant has a team secretly working on a new censored version of its search engine for china or earlier to the author of that report the intercept ryan gallagher and we asked him what he discovered about project dragon-fly that's google's secret effort to get back into china. yeah well basically drug and it is the project name for. an under. developed for smart phone users in china the idea is that it will get them to a censor diversion of google that is compliant with really in communist party
10:15 pm
regimes censorship controls over. people cannot sit on the internet in china and google is trying to get back into china. using this answer. yes once it's launched at the moment. the google idea was to have it ready between the next six to nine months to watch but we've seen this story that we published yesterday. that was right gallagher speaking to us from the intercept the question for helena how many zeros are in one trillion i know the answer but you tell the viewers i'm not going to give it away i want to know if you would spend or know how to spend a trillion though i think you'd help some ideas are definitely healthy so talking about that trillion we're talking about apple is becoming the first us company in fact to top one trillion dollars in market value the record crowds
10:16 pm
a decade decade long rise fueled by its i phone a chance for the tech from a niche player computers into a global powerhouse spanning entertainment culms of course it started in the garridge of the co-founder steve jobs in one thousand nine hundred seventy six apple has changed how we communicate with each other and how business conducts their daily comma i want to talk more about this now with sophie szymanski our correspondent on wall street now sophie many people say that the success of apple is down to the fact that it can in force high prices basically we're addicted to all phones so how long can the company keep that up. well the i phone or really any apple product has always been more than just a laptop or a phone it is still after that day a status symbol and design is playing big role as well f one has had the reputation
10:17 pm
of the number one visionary in the industry with the steve jobs even more about in the past fierce competitors have caught up and offered just as advanced a product for less money and in some quarters the numbers have shown signs of slowing demand for i phones maybe not every consecutive quarter but cook is getting the company ready by focusing on services and turned them into a more important source of income but then again according to the youngest earnings consumers are just the swelling as ever to purchase high priced products so maybe the psychology is still working for apple here and maybe let me quote a morgan stanley analyst who said that innovation lead price increases historically reduced apple demands a status symbol is just as long as a symbol of status and wealth as is expensive right so i think this is just still working for apple here heaven. but there's something else that they have to play
10:18 pm
with the prospect of a trade war with china what will that mean for the company. well first of all china is a very important market for apple about a quarter of apple's revenue comes from the chinese market and this revenue and have been rocketing on throwing off the i phone x. the kompany has just reported nine point five billion dollars in revenue that came from china significantly more than last year and investors expressed concern that a refund round off proposed terrorists could impact apple's market share in china but the c.e.o. tim cook emphasized the company's position the tariff can have unintended consequences for consumers and the economy but he did not say what if any impact the new head of terrorists could have on every product i would like to remind you off the special treatment the president has granted tim cook so far when he said
10:19 pm
that the u.s. government would not levy tariffs on the i phone as pembleton china so i would say so far investors are not too worried here i think it is fair to say that apple is not in line of fire right now. so if you. own wall street banks safety. well donald trump has been raising the stakes in his country's trade clash with china always raising towers from ten to twenty five percent on two hundred billion dollars worth of chinese imports now at the same time the leaders at a meeting of the southeast asian nations taking place in singapore say they could have the world's largest free trade deal in place by the end of the year speaking at the opening of in singapore as prime minister said asian nations have to stay relevant in times of uncertainty the planned free trade deal would include sixteen countries and would be backed by china beijing has appealed to washington to return
10:20 pm
to reason off the trans latest threat. britain central bank has raised its key interest rate despite concerns that the u.k. could face it bragg's it driven economic shock in just a few months time the court appointed increase by the bank of england is only the second rate increase since two thousand and eight as a response to some strong job numbers that the banks expected to be more cautious in the coming months is the departure talks continue bank of england chief mark carney has wounded a new deal gregg's it in march would be a shock to the nation's banking system. well if. it is over to brett now and the penalty shoot outs get a shake up. the government got the whole bells and whistles tonight football authorities are considering changing the format of
10:21 pm
penalty shoot outs to make them fairer and reduce the pressure on players going second to the day but the new system has been inspired by a very well known swedish pop band but will put all decided to take a chance let's find out. fresh off the back of a world cup which saw plenty of penalty shoot out drama young german players a training a new system. with research revealing the site going second in a shootout loses sixty percent of the time a new film has been devised a.p. also known as abba sees teams take alternating pairs of penalties off the first spot cake. too often high new teams have a style the way that sites. but what they make of the new system. it's good because in the old system the team going second was under greater pressure which could make them lose in this system if the first person misses his
10:22 pm
teammate can still level the school and that is that it doesn't even count your own player on the way back which makes a difference psychologically so you will have to wait and see if it's adopted by german football and in the next world cup. with the system also set to be trial to me endlessly cut the season it might not be long before abba takes center stage in football. change your mind. in europa league football germany is through to the next qualifying round the german squad drew one all with hakon of sweden in their overweight game in gothenburg scoring for life. the germans advance five to one on aggregate in another game is c.s.k. of severe were the surprise winners against amir of austria knocking the austrians out with a six to one aggregate win one of byron munich's newest and so i mean it was formally introduced to the media on thursday. who formally played for shell and is
10:23 pm
also a german national team player is that byron's training camp in bavaria in southern germany he talked about how he thinks he might be most effective for the squad. i think it's already known that i see myself playing in an attacking midfielder role or would prefer that at least that's where i play best and as has been said i'm actually fairly flexible when it comes to being deployed and that's also definitely one of my strengths and so that's why i'm also ready to play another position if the coach things that is where i'd be most useful to the team minutes. and it was it that much of the best move. are where you want to go back to our top story now in that is the announcement of the presidential election results in zimbabwe our correspondent melanie cora the ball joins me now on the telephone from the capital harare is let me just ask our producer is melanie there ok i've been told by our producer that unfortunately we've lost that connection we

10:26 pm
students need smaller vessels were still able to operate until recently but now they're going nowhere the. older boats with a shallow draft are still able to sail but it's difficult for them to dock so they've had to reduce or even shut down operations. on the river rhine near calls for barges are still on the water but most can only carry half their normal cargo so as not to run aground in the shallow channels but very passengers here don't need to worry yet these boats can still dock. about favorite tape is eight years old so the areas can still operate even if the water levels drop further what if i couldn't but if i can but it's possible that some of our passenger services won't be able to run in the fog just reduced field couldn't near the city of mines low water levels on the rhine have brought history to the surface police divers have found sixty six anti aircraft shells from the second world war
10:27 pm
