a self-imposed crisis of america's standing in the world and america's credit rating and at least a century it's a fairly emergency situation and we're deep into the eleventh bordering on the trough our debt reduction plan that president obama has endorsed at least rhetorically that comes out of harry reid and the democratic majority in the u.s. senate does make massive cuts in spending more than two point five trillion dollars over ten years and more than two hundred fifty billion dollars a year does no increase in revenue at all which was one of the early if i think somewhat rise demands of the republicans in these negotiations and therefore is possible is actually does more to reduce the deficit than the debt in the united states of the next ten years than the rival republican house plan the cut cap and balance plan and so it's possible that that could be pushed through none of these plans make real efforts to reduce the long term problem of insufficient revenue and these plans do reduce spending in ways that will be painful and for many

e. quote access to education for children of different backgrounds may be a very good idea but it's nonetheless getting a mixed response in india right now and government's unprecedented right to education act aims to provide compulsory and free education for all children aged between six and fourteen but it's india's centuries old social divide that's getting in the way of that as artie's prostrated reports. it's dawn in india's capital city of new delhi an eight year old cushy just always getting ready for school ball there are nearly two hundred million elementary school children like coaching in india only half that number ever complete the eighth grade most end up leaving school to help their parents with domestic work or to get a job to bring in some extra money. i haven't studied much that's why i want to
4:19 pm
educate my children after growing pressure to address the educational disparities in india the government passed an ox making it mandatory for all children between the ages of six and fourteen to get a free education even requires a leap private schools with tuitions nearing five hundred dollars per month to grant a quarter of their seats to students from disadvantaged backgrounds like cushy today there are just as many schools where students have to pay a choice unlike this one as there are three fools that are funded by the government according to the act it's up to the parents to decide where they send their kids to school that means it's free like what she can attend an elite private school if she entered the witness the lottery and gets into the twenty five percent quota it also means that if government workers are able to identify and successfully enrolled this is cool but are attending. schools like the ones pushing attendance now could get overcrowded but the idea of free schooling in india has its opponents while the
4:20 pm
teachers want to see their students succeed they believe that integrating indian children from a lower class into a private school would not be practical. these elite schools have a very high standard only juden whose parents are educated can study in schools like these chinese want to maintain their high standards and reputation. it's a position supported by the well off members of indian society the school is not meant for them. it's meant for the. people in. the getting elected in the sense that he comes from a good on his own so it will be. leave it as a work they were there. putting him in that sort of feel in a way i mean. he would have trouble getting assimilated in spite of the mixed reception the integration model received for children like cushy education is simply about accomplishing her dreams i want to study till the twelfth grade ten become a teacher i but it's a dream that may just fall through the gap of india's socio economic divide i.

prius or either r t new delhi india. is one of our main stories the us debt ceiling deadlock on the approaching august the second deadline with no solution on the horizon or office of the was known as the residence of funding or whether people feel a financial apocalypse it's around the corner. with the looming debt crisis the u.s. is watching the clock tick down to an economic armageddon what does that even mean this week let's talk about that they keep setting dates over and over again and nothing happened just because asian process i think so it's idle threat. i believe so to expect more from the people who like. gold also that neither party is going to let this actually happen where they would let it expire and then the united states would go into default i don't think that's going to happen i think that's
4:22 pm
a bluff but i think what actually is at hand is for real and they're they're using it as leverage to push their respective issues but i think americans if i'm speaking for myself as an american are sick of it or a good representative reports as they think of the river representing but i don't i think they keep on saying the american people want this america they want has. anybody really what they really want what do you want i would like to compromise right now the drama right now is largely contrived there is a debt crisis but will make it through and you know will pay the bills and things will be fine so all this drama i think is just making people crazy why are they doing that now i mean we raise the debt ceiling every year why is this drama unfolding right now well it's largely political because the upcoming election you know it's a good thing it's finally happening i think people are speaking up and and hopefully we'll get our way but sometimes it takes a while to bad things really are i mean nobody has given any ground i've seen
4:23 pm
a large before for many many years and this is absolutely truly amazing and makes me wonder how they ever get anything done in israel or in italy or any place where they have multi portage america to cordy's to an airport if you include the two guys and we can't get anything done it's utterly embarrassing this will be ashamed of themselves no matter what happens with the u.s. debt crisis the bottom line is we're. a lot more posturing from our the politicians and. more stories making headlines around the world now syrian troops have reportedly stormed a damascus suburb killing at least four human rights groups say it brings the number of dead to twenty two since friday after security forces were said would be going to new crackdown on anti-government protests since the uprising in gold syria in march activists say police violence has killed more than a thousand demonstrators. nato commanders say they've destroyed three t.v. satellite broadcasting dishes near the libyan capital tripoli the attack was said
4:24 pm
to have been carried out of accordance with the u.n. resolution to protect people from government oppression through the media however it's failed to knock libyan state television off the air it's now been for months as a military campaign began the libyan government claims hundreds of civilians have been killed in the airstrikes. miraculous escape for passengers on this plane overshot a runway and it broke into two in guyana all one hundred sixty three on board the boeing seven three seven survived although some injuries were reported the accident being blamed on bad weather authorities temporarily closed the airport delaying dozens of flights and stranding hundreds of passengers. lucky escape there will same with aviation and pilots of small planes in russia have long been grounded by imaginable amounts of paperwork but now a recently adopted law hopes to clear the runway for more frequent flights however many obstacles remain before it's the golden age for russia's small aviation says dennis polonsky explain. dozens of pilots swinging their way across russia for the

4:26 pm
instead of asking for permission for takeoff from the authorities in theory the pilots can now use the internet giant for air traffic control of their plants but in reality it rarely works. as you can see there are many forbid in all restricted zones around mosco so it's impossible for us to use notification mode anywhere within a two hundred kilometer radius of the capital even with the new law dozens of government organisations issue all sorts of contradictory instructions for pilots it's a major disincentive for pilots to make the effort to take to the skies and that means that russia is missing out on the potential pot of gold will some countries like the u.s. get billions of dollars from small aircraft fees and taxes russia doesn't get a sense of fear of the current regulations are in chaos and in a mess we're losing around five hundred billion rubles annually. pulled over many
