service came out followed by arnold schwarzenegger i thought to myself wow people like that often moscow and the ticket barrier closed on him he got stuck. in a few minutes of course and let him pass but now he knows. arnold schwarzenegger rolled just one stop but it was enough for him to post to weep that muscovites allegedly like the public transport had his journey lasted for more than ten minutes he might well have changed his impression but the russian authorities pulled out all stops for the cola for new governor providing him with police ask corey and a permanent right of way. it was in june that schwartz nager hostin the russian president giving him a tour of silicon valley and showcasing his very masculine boots. but he's not clear why the myth that i wonder what it's like to be in schwarzenegger's shoes but one month later big government aid or even moscow
3:01 am
promoting russia's own version of a high tech hub and it's great when i met president medvedev in a pretty foreigner that he has a vision and a very clear direction very wants to go and is very impatient and i think that we want to do everything that we can screen for nuance and as americans because it is to our interest to make russia successful yet as the presentation showed even arnie makes mistakes so that our business leaders are going to find great partnerships with the so we have every the russian. just shows no one i'm perfect. a pap project but a tax savvy russian president this cocoa apart has been designed to spearhead innovation and scientific research in russia i mean to me that it had no difficulties asking for help and. we were extremely interested in. considerable
3:02 am
experience we're not ashamed of learning we must admit that sadly enough behind in many respects we do expect that our corporation will bring about positive results from some twitter made better french words and they give praise to each other for their vision and to the delight of all he's found the governator promised that he'll be back and the first terminator movie innovation had gone so far that machines including schwarzenegger's own character tried to exterminate the human race ironically with his involvement in this project the governator may actually make these plot a bit more plausible but at the end of the day he can always turn against the machines and save the world like in the second movie so i guess there's nothing to fear. artsy skolkovo. and a group of russians you are using extreme measures to get addicts into rehab they kidnap drug abusers and force them into therapy the method has won public support but landed three members in jail sarah firth went to see them in action.
3:03 am
a drugs raid gets underway and after hours of waiting for a contact to give the signal suddenly everyone is up and running the police are involved but not taking part a law enforcement offices the raid is being organized by vigilante style group for me catherine you name themselves the city without narcotics agree pusing controversial tactics to target drug dealers and rehabilitate drug addicts this is a drug called as a morphine or locally known as crocodile it's a codeine containing a drug really dangerous the beginning of the race and coming through the window was pretty exciting but the minute you get inside the reality of the situation really hits you very hard you've got a young family. lying around the house next door a young child and a mother who looks barely more than a child herself both extremely scared and upset and it really makes him very
3:04 am
apparent just how sensitive this issue is. participation in raids has raised concerns about whether members of the foundation should be allowed to take the law into their own hands. it's an action which is cruel is it wrong to rescue a drowning person by pulling their hair if people say it's cruel inhumane let them teach us how to do it otherwise we work twenty four seven to help these people when the state isn't doing anything to be an issue to one relationship with the authorities and you catherine there is a fragile one that in eleven years they have managed to pool their energies to fight the drug issue effectively those caught in the raids face either arrest or we have this run by the glory is left to family members to give the final consent. conditions a hard they spend a month being weaned off drugs on a very basic diet and in crowd conditions but with the group claiming
3:05 am
a seventy percent success rate it appears tough love. my mother saw what six years of drug addiction had done to me and turned to the foundation for help it's hard but you can see how the people are here they talk to each other there's an atmosphere of friendship which helps you through but in other cities such as. similar initiatives have been dealt with very differently. was sentenced to three and a half years in prison despite having half the number of drug tests in the city in just two years which you know i only have a feeling of disgust for law enforcement agencies who instead of fighting drug dealers are fighting an organization which was running a successful anti drug dealing campaign it makes no sense at all it's a crime against our city's population it would work that this is a public outcry and led many to conclude that corruption among the third. eagle carried out there with two hundred operations against drug dealers as
3:06 am
a result the mortality rate is high. for him to sell drugs consequently didn't bribe the authorities the authorities didn't like but in both cities the foundations have vowed to continue the fight in the face of what they say is government inaction. that people have to take the problem personally i don't understand these before their brothers and sisters and that unless they do it nobody will do it for the pressure is in the grip of a major drugs crisis with an unofficial estimate two and a half million drug addicts in the country almost ten percent of the population people like genuine the foundation say a united effort is in everyone's interest and until proper measures are in place to deal not only with the dealers but in rehabilitating uses as well it's left to ordinary people like themselves to stand and fight to free the city of drugs so.
3:07 am
you're catching bag. still to come in the program here in our team such isn't. whole position not contained with just staging the winter olympics russia's black sea resort is on track to host one of the world's most glamorous sporting spectaculars and. it's cheaper to eat unhealthy that is to you know be i mean you go to mcdonald's and get a dollar menu and see what your your family for like five bucks. by journalists or hardness asks people in new york who is to blame for obesity and whether it's only a matter of why you put it in your mouth. to germany now chancellor angela merkel says attempts to build a multicultural society there have failed her comments come amid recent strong anti immigrant statements from mainstream politicians a recent survey suggested more than thirty percent of germans believe the country is being overrun by foreigners the study by the freedom foundation found a quarter of those polled sympathize with nationalist or racist sentiments perhaps
3:08 am
most foreign way one in ten apparently believes germany needs a new fuehrer a word which literally means a strong leader and a less democratic parliament he has keys who conducted the study says far right attitudes are deeply rooted in german society. the study shows that there's. education in some parts of society secondly people always especially in times of crisis such for scapegoats for their own political economic or social deprivation dissemination of all things together points us to the actually important thing which is that democracy itself is nothing self-fulfilling or the richest always there or something we have in europe without doing something for it so we have to fight for democracy every time and every day and yet that's actually what this results show us there is
3:09 am
a rise which is probably incensed by the economic crisis from two thousand and eight but on the other hand this rise from two thousand and eight to two thousand and ten we did this study in two thousand and eight as well isn't that important important is that we have this high percentage of right just extremist attitudes all over the time since two thousand and two when we started this studies that in general everybody could be affected by these attitudes which means that it doesn't matter whether you voted for a right just xmas party or the social democrats or even the left has argued all these people can have these attitudes and will be parents looking to adopt a child in the us are proving to be anything but colorblind despite half of all children looking for a new home black figures suggest their chances of being taken in are slim compared to other races are just got a chicken has more. people like to emulate their showbiz i don't speak bay don't
3:10 am
seem to be following the stars when it comes to adopting children many still see things in black and white color was not an issue with this family when they adopted illinois we were much more interested in having you know getting a child's words free that was our primary focus we really weren't interested too much with the child but of. little you know why is one of very few black children in america adopted by a white family a study carried out by a group of economists suggest that african-american babies are five times less likely to be adopted then children have any other race some say one reason for this is misrepresentation of the black community in the media when you see things on television and you often see our children portrayed in a very negative way well that has a connotation for individuals that may be interested in adopting and while we have come a long ways in this country racism is still prevalent sandra says families need to
3:11 am
be prepared before they decide to adopt a child of color and once a child goes into african american child goes into a family that is caucasian that family is no longer caucasian that family becomes a family of color at that point ok so the whole family dynamic changes it seems not a whole lot of adoptive parents in the u.s. are willing to change their family dynamics most want their adopted children to look more like them and the majority of parents willing to adopt in the united states are caucasian but almost half of the children available for adoption are black the report here says parents were willing to pay thirty thousand dollars more for a non african-american baby. if you look around your table and your guests are all of the same color then you shouldn't be adopting a child of a different color but race doesn't seem to be an issue for thousands of americans who go to china or india to adopt. but when it comes to domestic adoption color
3:12 am
makes a difference while there are still signs of prejudice in the american adoption field there is no prejudice in this home e.g. a seventeen month old queen was abducted by two moms we've had to face challenges that straight people don't want this or. for the job they chose to raise their two adopted children in a very ask equally diverse neighborhood or a racist and they are here too but i think in other parts of the country it's worse so here people don't even bat an eye. or a black boy or whatever obviously. parents they came to the adoption agency put their second child african american by and large our family is largely of irish english german descent french canadian you know so smart usually a lot of white people and we need i would prefer a little more color in our family. going to shut down our washington d.c.

building a circuit in russia should be a real crowd pleaser especially with some homegrown talent like dolly patrol taking part it's one of the leading countries in the world it's it's it's you know. an emerging economy. formula one should be there it would be great for from the want to be there would be great for russia to have a formula one race and in a place like so she. and now with petrol for the russian driver i think that's that's it's a nice energy. local administration and sponsors are planning to spend somewhere between one and two hundred million dollars on the circuit and pay another forty million annually to use the f one brand but with hundreds of thousands of formula one fans here is russians say the game is surely worth the candle for a certain new weave it will only bring benefits and not only in terms of image but people will be spending money here and well small and midsize business will be

they're couch potatoes they're watching television years ago they never had these things we were always out we get out there and enjoy the life that south africa has to offer here at an hour and a car you tell but i see that iran's a lot more focus on other things out of parties in life making money and so forth i'm going to say it's laziness i think too many people are more concerned about finding what brings them pleasure we don't want to deprive our children that's my opinion because i know when i was growing up you know you don't get cookies candy yeah and so i wanted to give my kids more and they want to give their kids what i have that's my opinion so is that how they view them we're not depriving them but are we doing them an injustice totally made because of you know the kind of restaurants and the food i mean the most the most successful ones are like food like mcdonald's and all of the stuff so i think maybe it's because of that food in the u.s. is very orderly a lot of cheers a lot of cream and
3:26 am
a lot of food in everest around ten people become used to that and part of a huge problem is that it's cheaper to eat unhealthy than it is you healthy i mean you can go to mcdonald's and get a dollar menu and feed and bunch of your family for like five bucks or you can go to the organic grocery store and buy an apple who's to blame for getting us here. it's a if you're marketing exactly i mean you turn on the t.v. you see commercials for mcdonald's all day you'll see commercials for celery and broccoli and you know who can blame kids i think a lot of us to do with our government. in keeping entertained and busy doing other things and not thinking about things that we should be thinking about no matter who you think is to blame for the obesity epidemic the bottom line is that our bottoms will continue to grow until we actually do something about it.
