3:04 pm
shady business deals by the yangon regional government and its head if you maintain a close confidant of state councilor and nobel peace prize laureate chiefs three journalists have been released on bail but the incitement charges so far have not been dropped if convicted they face up to two years in prison de facto leader on sense to achieve was once the figurehead of the democracy movement in her country a symbol of resistance against the decades long oppression by me and mars' military rulers now she heads a party and a government that alongside that same military could tales press freedom in intimidates critical voices when they are lying runs me in march first investigative magazine he says the laws like the official secrets act the two reuters journalists were charged under need urgent reform as things stand he says journalists remain under threat. even when we using our phone we very

3:06 pm
a bit hard to predict the outcome of a potential second trial will have to wait and see if that second trial should actually happen if that's any different from the first trial the first trial was widely criticized for different reasons let me just give you an example one of those one of those things that back critics pointed out is that apparently the judges didn't take into account the testimony of one of the witnesses there a police officer who admitted that the two reuters journalists were basically lured into a trap by the police they were given documents that allegedly contained state secrets and then directly afterwards they were arrested for being in possession of these exact documents and that's only possible because there is this law the official secrets act that has been in place since colonial times and that basically criminalizes the possession of secret information you don't even have to do
3:07 pm
anything with it just having it or being in possession of it is already a crime and that's what they were charged for now. cheese she said that this trial and also the verdict was in line with the laws and that really shows that the laws are really the problem here that laws like this official secrets act for example but there are others telecommunications laws for example defamation laws as well and there are so broad critics say that they easily lend themselves to silencing and intimidating critics and they say that critics say that these laws have to be amended and if that doesn't happen then it's really hard to see how things will significantly change that we bussin what about aung san suu kyi you know she was the nobel peace prize laureate a former pro-democracy activist but some say press freedom has declined since she took office tell us more about her role in all of this. well it is a surprise or it was
3:08 pm
a surprise for many to see this development really because many people inside and outside of myanmar thought and hoped that things were going to get better that things were going to move more towards more freedom and more democracy but as you say it seems that the opposite at least in parts has happened so many journalists for example in myanmar say that they felt they had more freedom under the previous president saying who was a former general then they do now another reason is why is this happening there's a lot of finger pointing at the military saying it's their fault they're the ones who really wield power in me and mar and that they have been very sensitive especially since the onset of that crisis but it's not only the military because it's it's the government too if you take for example that case against the three journalists who were recently arrested for criticizing the regional government that's led by the end of the party and they want they're the ones who pressed charges so that was their decision so that that is really
3:09 pm
a development that not only surprises but also disappoints many so we are there southeast asia correspondent boston heartache thank you very much for your reporting not to some other stories making headlines around the world a freelance japanese journalist who returned for more than three years of captivity in syria has apologized for causing trouble to his government. said he traveled to syria to see for himself what was really happening but was kidnapped by militants after crossing the border saudi arabia's crown prince is reported to have told the u.s. that he consider jamal khashoggi to be a dangerous islamist the washington post newspaper says mohammed bin sama made those remarks in a phone call with white house advisers questioner and john bolton the call was made after the writer disappeared but before saudi arabia admitted to killing him. russia's vladimir putin hosted talks with cuba's president today and the two called on the united states to reconsider its intention to withdraw from

a nuclear arms treaty cuba and the soviet union were cold war allies and putin says russia still feels solidarity with communist cuba. polish prime minister my tears and german chancellor angela merkel are meeting today in warsaw along with their ministers that these types of joint cabinet sessions are usually a sign of good relations but this time it's different germany has criticised the changes poland's right wing populist government has made to the judicial system as undermining the rule of law of the governing law and justice party has lowered the retirement age for justices on the supreme court critics say that move allows the government to kick out judges it doesn't like last month the european court of justice ordered poland to reverse the move poland also has issues with germany its unhappy about the plan to build a gas pipeline north stream to from russia to germany under the baltic sea bypassing poland and it argues jeopardizing poland's energy security.
3:11 pm
let's bring in d.d.'s correspondent money to set out because she is standing by for us in warsaw with more on this story monica how serious is the current friction that we're seeing between warsong berlin. well ascensions have been very deep in the recent months and years as you already said. the european union or york and some if not also german officials the german government is very concerned about the judicial reform is in poland the sense of this reform is to putting on the putting judges and courts under the control of the government and the argument from the polish side is always that the old commies judges have to move have to go and they should be replaced by. government friendly judges. but this is of course it's causing tensions because germany from the polish perspective germany is
3:12 pm
probably the last country in europe which is allowed to the polish people lessons in democracy because of the historical reasons monica not looking at poland's perspective hole is also unhappy about this planned gas pipeline from russia to germany to the baltic sea why is that. one of the polish government not only this government but all the governments have been already have been. arguing many times that it is undermining the balance of energy the security of energy in europe but also poland and also because of the historical reasons poland is left aside feels like left aside by all didn't like all these negotiations and poland has no access to these. so this. does not seem to gas pipeline poland and ukraine which is also bypassed by the single pipeline have
3:13 pm
bilateral agreements with russia but that allows russia to put pressure on these two countries ok so there's plenty of friction here between germany and poland what are the avenues for dialogue then what are we expecting to come out of this. well there are yes possibilities for a dialogue. the economy is booming in poland and there are thousands of germans and their brand. new companies. here in poland the polish economy is dependent on that they're on economy and all the business people of all i am talking to are very happy. with the german polish economic relations its great extent is. very big it's about one thousand billion. euros a year and the other point is the coming bric poland is that we are. and it's
3:14 pm
ready to make a bigger can increase in contributions with the budgets of the european union and this is not a controversial point good thing this is something all right so there is some common ground there monica showed up for us in warsaw thank you very much. now an international effort to create the world's largest marine reserve off of the coast of antarctica has been voted down the proposal aimed to protect nearly two million square kilometers from fishing and mining in what is known as the would doubtless see the area as home to an array of marine life including some believe undiscovered species after two weeks the twenty five nation members of the commission for the conservation of antarctic marine living resources could not come up with an agreement. and let's bring in ross son tagg he's

3:16 pm
political aspects of it play a role i think maybe china is playing for time you know to see but they can do maybe at a later stage standdown rauf this is a see that is home to several important species why are we just talking about it's a protection now well be you know talking about his protection since many many years it chest takes a long time two years ago even able to get to rusty protected another very important ecosystem and you know. and it's actually since seventy years they keep to try to protect event out sea and germany has now put another effort into presenting this into getting its fuel but unfortunately as i said russia and china vetoed it and also know they demanded they don't even know it's accept to count proposal of germany given those vetoes what is next for trying to make this a protected area. i think it has to go to higher levels i think.
3:17 pm
for a minister in germany to really have to talk to the russian and chinese conduct go ahead negotiate that he can create use of protected areas i think something very important in order to achieve at least twenty thirty percent of our oceans to be protected that's what we need and that's very very i think happens all right on track scientific advisor for the antarctic and southern ocean coalition thank you very much for joining us on a program. if you. now police in china have released chilling c.c.t.v. footage showing the moments before a deadly bus crash in the city of trunk chain officials say a female passenger started fighting with the driver after she missed her stop she had asked them to stop on the road but she refused the bus then plunged off a bridge thirteen bodies have been retrieved from the water two others are still missing no one is believed to have survived.

3:19 pm
them what is this stress test good for and what exactly is being tested there. that was a good one garrett finally somebody who is understanding me. but anyway let's talk about the lenders and their stress tests and investor compare there's a little bit early and said this is like a yearly doctor's appointment for the lenders around the e.u. and also in norway from a starting point off their financial positions at the end of two thousand and seventeen the banks were confronted with a scenario where the european union's g.d.p. plunged by two point seven percent between two thousand and eighteen and twenty twenty on top of that the test also simulated that unemployment would be rising by more than three per cent to a level that we saw the last time during the financial crisis in two thousand and nine the interesting thing is that this could be a potential scenario off the heart grex at the banks of course know that but nobody is really saying this officially. i don't know what are you hearing there from the
3:20 pm
central banks are there any candidates likely to fail this stress test well this test is not really about failing or passing this was the case before georgia for example failed a stress test in the united states so investors will be closely of course monitoring how daughter bank is doing and also how it tele and lenders will perform so yeah i will be waiting for the results i hope in frankfurt thank you very much. the final u.s. jobs report before next tuesday's midterm elections shows that employers are still hiring that is a welcome development for republicans ahead of the vote in the u.s. for labor department said american the boys added sure to fifty thousand new jobs in october while salaries rose at the fastest pace since two thousand and nine unemployment held steady of three point seven percent that's a forty eight year low in september the aftermath of florence weighed on jobs

3:23 pm
voted new york needs and deserves a new vision republicans also know it's to their advantage to convince first time voters that their party is young and engaged but it won't stop me from working hard america is an exceptional place and it's still a young country bridgette on the president of george washington university student decedents to vote in this huge voting bloc i think the largest voting bloc just the most under-represented in terms of whether or not we show up to the polls so i think that if we end up showing up that will have a large impact recent polling suggested young voters may defy expectations and show up to vote in significant numbers this year if so that might tip the balance of power in congress. donald trump says central american migrants who threw rocks at u.s. border troops would be treated as if they were armed the u.s. president told journalists a group of several thousand migrants moving north toward the border had already

go on stage without drama and the really fell of just before we were going on stage and we it was a disaster i also had the experience of working with a substitute drama who some of our brass section in the band i was in would sort of telling him how to play the drums jury on the show he didn't take very lightly to this and when we got to a soft number he smashed it he just completely ruined the number you know what was a get but they got if you if you the. the drama is as i say i mean he can ruin a number he's very very important don't upset the drama or do you have to do is watch animal in the muppet show for proof. anyway as you said drums have been around for thousands of years but the drum kit is only been around for one hundred years and it was invented by the ludwig corporation in america in one thousand nine hundred eighteen is more. even though dramas are generally tucked away at the back of the stage they play a vital role in any band. if you've got

a decent set of drums promised mamma ranker takes around nine months to make one set the shell is usually made of maple would be. the way the drums are made hasn't changed much in the past one hundred years. time hide the level of position is changed for the individual parts jus to technological progress we used to work within half a centimeter now it's my crew millimeters but as for the drum generally nothing's really changed. that hasn't changed is the relationship that all drivers develop with their instruments. these days of course computers can generate beats but that's not the real deal one hundred years on the interaction between human dramas and their kits just can't be. i think it's.

some great drummers in there rob and the what stands out is that we see a whole lot of men onstage but there are plenty of great women drummers as well aren't they have the raw but actually in fairness i should say in the sixty's and seventy's it was a very male dominated business the rock'n'roll business all the bands were by i mean the exceptions were in the seventy's the runaways and in the eighty's the bangles that were female and the one that many so it wasn't just dramas but nowadays there are great female guitarist great cream out keyboard players and indeed great drummers we've got one here this is and he can neither is from germany actually better known internationally is and i cannot in fact she has millions of dollars on you tube to try to drum. and she also writes the producer music she goes on told around with the world and guess bands as well as that playing with our own musicians but generally in the rock'n'roll business today there are a lot more women involved well now that we see computer generated bates's that mean
