historical depth of discrimination and patterns of discrimination anti semitism racism that's not history that's still happening today every day in europe and all over the world. 17.5000000 names and every single one counts. so far there are rules and our archives have digitized 3 and a half 1000000 documents and these days the art world is also going digital with investors spending enormous sums on artworks that exists only on computer networks until now digital art was so easy to copy that it didn't make much sense financially but now that's changed and the implications for the art market her huge . the magic word is n f t or non fungible token and it's revolutionizing the art market this. technology
7:49 pm
records the owner's identity in a blog change while the work itself remains publicly visible on the web for anyone to see. so and it is a technical spec there you need additional work of art where any did any. essence uni so you get it well to me that. was the artist's what was the nation size. and that you bought it and you are the rightful owner in this online gold rush a flying cap sold for $650000.00 a tweet for several 1000000. crypto cats or virtual basketball cards sold for millions. and now christie's has got on board auction ing every days from artist people as its 1st tokenized piece. the sale not only meant
7:50 pm
recognition for digital art but it's helped christie's reap millions in a win win situation. job or just get him of us but i think when there's money at stake people take things seriously so many people who used to not really take this art form seriously are now having a closer look and that's great and so and of course the artist who created this work will go down in art history on that site so it's a conspiracy so i'm actually. the buyer was a singapore based fund that had made a fortune with cryptocurrency 90 percent of the bidders at christie's were unknown is a new crypto elite divvying up the market. people they're all right now. that . onto the market forms with really open i do not have much knowledge of the art market and our enemy. and just really go by.
7:51 pm
that could up end the traditional dominance of art galleries and museums when it comes to determining what art is valuable and important for crypto art could turn out to be an unprecedented speculation bubble but even if that bubble bursts it's still likely to shake up the art market. and let's talk a little more about how and the f t's are shaking up the art market i've got d.w. reporter michael kruger here with me so mike a lot of people are asking is this the new art market or is it just a bubble what do you think well 1st of all 2 words have met here on the one hand this young generation new it's with a pocket full of bitcoins cryptocurrency and on the other hand the very professional investors who are not really interested in art and yeah and this is maybe the reason why we have these incredible sums that being paid 5 now if the
7:52 pm
value of trip to really increase in the future is something we still don't know the excitement will go down i'm quite sure and the art will return at the center again but nevertheless people like me pull will be a chapter in the history of art where there's a lot of excitement now also though in the music industry some people are saying and if he's are going to shake up that world what's that about well they're really threatening the monopoly of streaming services right now with the subscription based economic models because after the streaming services the wreckage the labels the musicians seem to be at the end of the food chain and this could change with an f.t.c. they are back in the control them. music is back in their hands and they can decide the value of a song. so this is a really thrilling development and the list of musicians were experimenting with and of teas is growing longer and longer we have festival grimes we have shown man
7:53 pm
this and the king of limbs for example but everyone in the music world is that into n f t's there with the with the criticism well in the moment it's still a very exclusive sokol right now because if you buy in and the sea and if the music you you were by it all you woodstock and that means it's it works just for the musicians who are already very famous i mentioned grimes for example she's already rich hospital is one of the richest man in the world and another really big question is what happens when the own a dice is ownership often n.f.t. inherited and but one thing is quite clear once you own it and if t. it's really safe from being stolen well i'm going to leave it there for now my krueger thanks so much because speaking of theft and art theft dutch police have arrested a man they believe stole priceless paintings from 2 museums on the lockdown
7:54 pm

7:56 pm
where the artist has staged his mannequins since the beginning of the pandemic last year they've already toured more than 30 german city. plays posed in front of the berlin stock. conquered pottstown. and occupied the bridge in limbo. the figures wrapped in red and white warning tape symbolize social distancing and the standstill of public life. even. on a ski slope. most i don't limit the mannequins come from different places for example from boutiques that have had to close their doors during the pandemic but also from a hobby hardware store that had to shut down so i was able to buy all the mannequins at a reasonable price. in may dennis yosef message will be awarded the credo creativity

this is the new year's line from the e.u.'s medicines watchdog says there is a possible link between astra zeneca corona virus vaccine and blood clot the head of the european medicines agency says clotting should be listed as a potential side effects but they're still battling fish out. also on the program potent accused of turning its back on victims of domestic violence along grows as lawmakers propose scruff international convention aimed at protecting women from abuse. and in sports fire munich returned to the champions league tonight without
8:01 pm
their top offensive weapon. in the premier geoff last year's final against perry sound. i'm phil gallo welcome to the program. european medicines agency has announced that there is a possible link between the astra zeneca corona virus vaccine and blood clotting of the drugs regulated described the condition is a very rare side effect and said that the adverse reactions will be for investigated further but they had this message for people thinking about refusing an astra zeneca shot the benefits of the astra zeneca vaccine in preventing qubit 19 overall outweigh the risks of trying to fix this vaccine has proven to be highly effective if it prevents if severe disease and hospitalized patients and it is
8:02 pm
saving lives vaccination is extremely important in helping us in the fight against cope at 19 and we need to use the doxies we have to protect us from the devastating effects well i would say our european medicines agency in the u.k. of the medicines regulators have that has also changed its guidance on the astra zeneca vaccine that now advising people under 30 to use a different drug but the country's prime minister said the vaccination program would continue i think the crucial thing on this is to listen to what the scientists and the doctors medical experts experts have to say the the m h r a s e's is meeting the c.v.r. the drunk with your vaccination immunization is meeting that will be. the position we will get told with rolling out the vaccine people who follow very catholic what they have to say i think everybody should listen
8:03 pm
a catholic to what they have to say so we will get on with rolling out the vaccine program and to answer your question directly i don't think that anything i have seen leads me to suppose that we will have to change the road map deviate from the road map in any way. look at the science behind this if we can lawrence as young as if they're all adjusted. faster molecular on college and one university so medical school is talking to us from near the 2nd biggest city and welcome to the w. so what we've heard from the air may is a possible link between the astra zeneca drug and these rare blood clotting disorders we kind of knew that because that's where we were before we thought there was a link and now they're saying there's a possible link can you explain to us how we have moved closer to knowing that there is a link between taking this and potentially getting this condition you know this is just mounting evidence really that there is an increased. association.
8:04 pm
an association between. us was a nickelback seen in these rare blood clots what we don't know for sure all is whether that is calls also you just have to get more data and what you've got is a very very rarely very very rare side effect but evidence is slowly but surely firming up across europe and the u.k. and the possibility is becoming stronger all the while that there is an association albeit very very rare. they theorize that this could be an immune response of vaccination could you explain that to us please. yeah because of this is a very strange form and that's what form of clusium that's what makes it a bit old because what you're seeing is increased blood clotting but the cells are actually responsible for supporting blood. alone so you've got this low platelet count and that's sometimes associated with an immune response so sometimes the body
8:05 pm
your body can mount a bizarre very rare immune response against the platelets themselves your own blood cells and this is what makes this a bit peculiar and a bit suspicious because it looks like there is an immune response going on in a few individuals that precipitates and leads to this rare form of clotting and what we don't know he's are there any other risk factors associated with that but i think it's because the rarity of these very specific form of blood clotting that makes us really suspicious and says and that that is something to do with an abnormal response to the vaccine or possibly to people who've been vaccinated who then go on very soon after vaccination to get kovan has you know coded itself is associated with blood clotting and this is a type of thing you can only sort out when you've got larger numbers and the numbers of cases at the moment are far too small so what this is all about is just be recourses. today we also heard from the u.k.'s vaccine advisory body and they
8:06 pm
have their medical regulators they've seemed to have got a step further by saying it's preferable for people under 30 to have an alternative to the astra zeneca vaccine what's behind that. if you look very carefully at the data and the balance of risk so what you look at it looked at for every age group is the balance of risk of getting this very rare form of blood clotting against the risk of getting severe disease and hospitalization and what you find is the balance of risk is more favorable for older people because we know older people are much more susceptible to the severe consequences of kovi it and younger people actually this is you know are relatively protected and when they get they don't tend to get as sick and certainly you know the death rate younger people is much lower so they've made a cut they've come to a conclusion because of that risk benefit analysis if you like that it's probably
8:07 pm
a for to protect the under thirty's from the possible consequences of this astra zeneca vaccine and provide them when we come around to vaccinating that group with an alternative vaccine thank you so much for that explanation i have professor lawrence as young from the university why. well take a look at stories making headlines around the world will start in miramar where local media are reporting that at least 11 civilians have been killed in the northwestern town of color that's where some residents have been using a homemade hunting rifles and in their attempts to visit the military if the deaths are confirmed it will be one of the highest single day death tolls aside the country's 2 largest cities young girl and the like. jordan's king abdullah has broken his silence public rift in the royal family and told the country that the worst political crisis in decades is now over it was sparked by an alleged plot

8:12 pm
a green light for torturers so this is a permission to terminate an international agreement which protects the victims of violence you say to the good of us the u.n. you see adama you give us. one in 3 women has been a victim of physical or sexual violence a recent study finds the istanbul conventions primary task is to prevent violence against women but although the text of the convention has never changed populists in countries like poland turkey and hungry have been politicizing the convention for their own political agenda. in poland last year hundreds of thousands of women took to the streets against the new abortion and the curtailment of their rights those protests have continued despite the threat of covert and a heavy police presence. i went to the protest together with all my friends because we knew we had to show we did not agree with what's going on. but
