3:39 pm
to run patrick meyer is one of germany's leading wheelchair skaters but today he's struggling to reach the top of the half pike. i can't get as high as i want to. wheelchair skating is a relatively new discipline it began at the start of the millennium in the us the thirty three year old has been a serious wheelchair skater for four years and is passionate about the sport skating skating is a very free thing you don't go by rules but my feeling is. it's true to life it's fun and liberating five. that some things young patrick particularly treasures at the age of nineteen he was involved in a serious car accident he spent months in a coma his right leg was amputated above the knee but he refused to give up watching videos of wheelchair skaters inspired him as he fought to rebuild his life

. does s.r.u. always does and when i saw the first video i was still in the hospital. i knew that walking and running wouldn't be possible anymore. and then i thought this is a goal i can pursue i want to do this but if. patrick meyer competes regularly in tournaments for wheelchair motocross known as w.c. m.x. . two years ago he came in sixth at the world championships in texas points are awarded for each trip according to the level of difficulty and the standard of performance. just like regular skateboarding wheelchair skating is not without its risks. to doing this is sure it hurts a bit it always hurts when you fall but you know immediately what mistakes you made so you don't say annoyed for a long fight the best thing to do is get right back up and carry on which is what
3:41 pm
i'd better do now. you know those might have been with you. once a month patrick meyer gives courses in wheelchair skating even those who don't want to enter competitive sport find the wheelchair training helps increase their independence. it's a form of self determination pursuits but it makes a real difference if you can get up onto a sidewalk yourself without help from others. that's something that skating does for you it gives you confidence. everybody needs to be able to move around movement is everything. in the lead up to a tournament patrick meyer is out on the halfpipe every day he trains for up to six hours a day skating is clearly much more than a hobby for him. to skate me. but if i didn't have skating i wouldn't be able to get out of bed so it inspires me to keep going. and that doesn't only apply to skating but also two other day to day problems i have to face i take the same
3:42 pm
approach there as in skating i might not make it tomorrow but eventually i'll get there. and eventually he makes it to the top of the half pipe. the singer and songwriter can frankie is actually known for melancholy slow beats tunes of blood on her latest album called bad behavior she stands up the tempo notch and has created music that fits more into the pop and dance of genre well frank is all strongly and but she relocated to berlin about fourteen years ago and our next report she tells us about the change she's made in her musical direction. frankie first made a name for herself with melancholy songs in the manner of folk music now she's reengineered herself.
3:43 pm

cat frankie version one sad poetic upbeat cluny. her music is rarely political but always has presence. and it did she feel she had to turn to pockets to awaken her inner rebel. i really do wish i were a total rebel unfortunately i'm not. i am a bit defiant and i have strong opinions. that i'm not a rebel i know it's sad but i am trying. i was was a. can't frank you know works with loops songs and fragments of song she combines and layers them. it's six.
3:46 pm
six. these. things. like this with only her voice. for she had times does sound like the ballad singers of your. broaching dread but around the bad behavior once more it's not an invitation to passive pretty and resignation there's too much drier energy for that. there's all of us in this bit wanting it and we all know we're living in complicated times like many people who lost their opinions at very high volume on the internet there's lots of outrage perhaps we need to see it the more action i. see on t.v. . talking about

action the energy proved infectious and you know the audience abandoned their seats and started to jump around. cranky has come a long way. when thinking about our carbon footprint you probably don't consider that the food you eat also contributes greatly to it in fact by some estimates food production including growing farming processing transporting cooking and so on accounts for at least one fifth of global carbon emissions so how can we reduce our so called food print one company cafeteria in sweden has an interesting idea.
3:48 pm
from a hearty meal to deep fried foods to a healthy salad most campaigns offer a range of dishes but here in golf inboard every meal comes with information on its carbon footprint head chef says it's more appetising than it might sound and we don't change so much to try to when we were buying our meat to try to buy meat on the food it makes money for a moment like beef and more fish more speaking on. the production of food generates a considerable amount of c o two. dotted bring those on advises campaigns in restaurants on how to make their menu more climate friendly. that is that you should be able to find troubling information where you find food basically and to make a dent in the climate sort of missions across europe and hopefully the world. just opting for more fruit and vegetables and occasionally forgoing meat can help but
3:49 pm
does the extra information really change diners eating habits i usually take this favorite dish but i think you can be said to show you from a same time how can you. help me to show support for something basically. i tend to go for the vegetarian option anyway and knowing that it's better for the environment as well means it makes sense to choose that more often take my notes are you seeing this it will probably give me remind me one more time. it's about the numbers and so sometimes he would expect. so these small reminders could help consumers lean towards a healthier and more climate friendly choice. and finally it's time to take a trip and today we're going to explore the italian island of elba thanks to a viewer request from guatemala daniel wrote in to us wanting to know more about
