recipients is also what has kept their cultural life throughout the centuries yet and susie asked equally sharing a heritage they are proud to call their own. for even singing my who life my mother still sings old returns and songs and revive them this dress belongs to my grandmother when i put on this dress i feel very good and have this desire to sing old songs the a desire she hopes to pass along to her young grandson. as time went by the meaning of what it is to be has changed and today there's a debate surrounding what it really means to be more of that today i'm joined by. and she will tell us a bit more about the debate that's going on so what will be different the suspect. is some people think that they're real some people think more is a kind of identification of the area the scientist. culture so we have different
11:22 am
aspects of debates what defines each identity is a big. more than culture traditionally. people living on the coast of the sea and of the name comes from a small district and then there are people even on the coast where associated with the marine corps ok thank you very much. some groups say there are more some people who are not even from this region identify themselves with morris but what's important for those who do call themselves that is that they continue living the lifestyle and the traditions of the people that are from this town many many years ago. we told her french. flying off the shelves in russia and around ten minutes from now on next weekend business update was solid.
11:23 am
hungry for the feel we've got. the biggest issues get voice face to face with the news makers. hello welcome to the business program with me charlayne was folly russia would not significantly increase the amount of grain imports this year the government says it has another reserve to cope with this year's poor harvest however economists believe the higher prices being paid for weight will never simply see through the
11:24 am
high street indeed a question of our reports. we. all know bread and even five grain bread well russians needs more bread that really you need anybody else in the world so any change in prices of this state will good make seriously impact the amount of money in people's vote gets because of it's been record since right even on the government's list of racing projects where price was subject to control if they started going to. the federal and she monopoly service is currently investigating in number of bakeries for imposing price hike as much as twenty percent but given the fact global wheat prices have soared seventy percent in the last two months it's hard to see how consumers can be completely him and not used all the inflationary fears that we have seen are not being passed on completely to the consumer i think inflation may pick up in september. all depends on the
11:25 am
economics and the market dynamics listees decision to ban grain experts which came into effect of the beginning of this week will only do so much to control prices domestic with consumption in russia is approximately seventy five million tonnes the latest forecast for the harvest fall well short of that. the forecast for this year's food harvest ranges from fifty nine point five to sixty three point five million tonnes but it's also possible that we could even go below that figure. russia does play an important role in providing the world with its carbohydrates it was the third largest exporter of we did two thousand and nine but this year the weather has been so appalling that the foreign land is unlikely to recover immediately when the rains come having implications for the winter harvest and even next year's crop might you know question our business are. let's have
11:26 am
a look at the markets now here in russia the start of track global trends then closed down for a third day on friday both all of the metals were in retreat damping the investment a period of quality produces. aisle and steel top three point seven percent while gas probably ended down one point one. zero looking back on the week sentiment has been broadly negative on the russian lockets we've also shown some volatility so i'm going work from consultancy invest because they wraps up the last five days trade. this week was kind of usual for august because. it's end of summer and august is a very scary months for russian traders and for russian stock markets and. well it's quite volatile but for the recent three weeks we've been in a very narrow range in terms of this is we don't break that. recent economic statistics from the u.s. is not encouraging because for example on thursday you are saying this is
11:27 am
a big deal because of the statistics about manufacturing activity in about jobless claims commodities prices right now are not supporting. the current commodity levels are. already in the prices of the russian stocks there was a lot. in terms of fertilizer industry. might emerge soon and the information which came in for the chinese company which might participate in the oil for four. so that information. is quite important for us. crude oil is not a six week low it's been struggling to break out of the seventy to eighty dollars range for moments after briefly hitting eighty two dollars the beginning of all gas prices have slipped back on concerns about faltering economic growth and high industries in the u.s. as alexei caulking for metropol explains the risks appeared to be mainly on the
11:28 am
downside for the rest of the year. i rather doubt there's going to be a major breakthrough through say. the next three to six months but we'll probably see you all going through eighty to the eighty five range in two thousand and eleven but if we were experiencing it in excess supply. probably see prices lower and i think the big question is is two months to stay in this level and there's some doubt as to chinese chinese demand if you look at the year in year growth apparently in july it went down quite dramatically to about three percent a year so the question is was the high demand in the first how cute someone else they found for instance or a program to help the chinese come to increase the strategic stocks or could
11:29 am
i'm products and perhaps just know us that's the case that i have in my potential case ok so for the other sixty five. we will be able to use by the end of the year . and that's all for this hour but you can always buy more on our website calls that business. he.

signed up to fill in the military because i thought that it was my duty but that it was something that i could do to help my country i believe my government and fuck the business necessary for america to vietnam there was a lot of drug abuse the lot of the murder of american officers by american soldiers there were a lot of them seem to be a problem by. before the war i always thought i wanted to win a lot of medals and they do have a lot of desperation but afterwards i realize that they they don't mean.
